The Difference Between True/Genuine Repentance Vs. “Face-Value” Repentance

Remember back in grade-school when one kid got into a fight with another kid and then the teacher later tried to make each kid say they were ‘sorry’ to one another, and how the two kids then scowled at each other and mockingly said ‘sorry’ in unison? (In other words, the two kids SAID they were “sorry” but they didn’t truly MEAN IT in their HEARTS?!)

Well, I really hate to admit this but I was actually ONE of those “kids” in the 4th grade! And at the time, I thought I was so “justified” in my actions……the girl had been bullying ME first, and so I bullied her right back, which eventually led to a one-time physical confrontation on the playground in which I shoved her to the ground. The teacher (perhaps in vain?) tried to make us both say we were “sorry” to one another afterwards, but ofcourse we weren’t, at the time!

This is a PRIME EXAMPLE of what I call “Face-Value” Repentance……..It is a SPOKEN/VERBAL repentance but NOT LITERAL!

If we turn through the pages of the bible, we see SEVERAL examples of “Face-Value Repentance”. Let us examine a few:

“And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer” – Exodus 9: 27-28

“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.” – Exodus 10: 16-17

Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthrightFor ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears” – Hebrews 12: 16-17

Now……what do ALL of these “Face-Value Repentances” have in common (including my very OWN during the time of 4th grade?) Answer: each and every individual in these cases KNOWS deep, deep down within their spirit that they’ve “done wrong in the name of the Lord” but….THEY WON’T ADMIT IT AND/OR THEY DON’T CARE!

They’re “pridefully arrogant” in their sins and even feel “JUSTIFIED” in their sins:

“And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the Lord: I have performed the commandment of the Lord” – 1 Samuel 15:13 and….verse 20…..”And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses” – Exodus 1: 8-11

And these Old Testament characters are really no different than many “Christians” out there, TODAY. They “say” or “claim” they are sorry, but they are NOT “truly sorry” with tears, repentance and mourning.

What does truly “mourning” over one’s sin(s) mean? Let us turn back to the bible to find out!

Psalm 51 of King David declares:

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.  Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spiritThen will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.”

So in other words, David was grieved of his sin, not ONLY by his OWN accord, but by the LORD’S ACCORD! In other words, he was grieved at his HEART! (In other words, he was grieved in his heart, knowing how, in his own sin, he had BROKEN the “heart” of God!)

This is the polar opposite of Esau, who only became sorry after he “got caught” by his father for selling his birthright to Jacob! And if you think about it, that’s really no different than today’s “celebrities” saying “sorry” in the news media for this or that. But one really has to wonder. Are they really, TRULY sorry or just “sorry they got caught?” If they had NEVER gotten caught, would they have still partaken of that “sin”?

However, when King David in the Old Testament said he was “sorry”, he TRULY meant it! That’s WHY the bible calls him “a man after God’s own heart”. In other words, King David was mourning the fact that he knew he had pierced God’s “heart” with his unrighteous SIN! And did King David try to cling to his sin, as though it were a secret beloved pet? No! Ofcourse not! He wanted his sin FAR REMOVED from him! Because he didn’t want to do anything that he knew, from that point on, that would break God’s heart! In fact, he cared more about God’s heart than his own, I’d bet to say!

TODAY’S men and women (specifically Christian men and women) are after their OWN “hearts!” They often think, what’s best for ME? How is this going to benefit ME? They ALSO oftentimes think, Yeah well, I don’t NEED to apologize for this or that because God ALREADY knows I’m sorry, for he knows all things! Or they ASSUME someone they NEED to apologize to ALREADY knows they’re “sorry”, when that personally can’t be further from the truth!

True, GENUINE repentance means to feel SO BAD about something, that you feel spiritually sickened to your stomach about it……..SO GRIEVED that you feel like metaphorically cutting out your insides with GREAT SHAME………SO GRIEVED…that you’d do almost anything to change it (whatever sin you’ve committed/been committing). In other words, it’s a TRUE change of heart.

On the other hand, face-value repentance is just putting on a “show”. For example: A person gets caught cheating on their spouse. And oh, how “sorry” they are, and oh how they promise “they’ll never do it again”. But these types of “apologies” only go so far. What will the cheat-ER do once the cheat-EE (the spouse being cheated on) becomes “too trusting” again? Are they really, TRULY sorry or only “sorry because they got caught”?

One thing that ALL people will have in common that get thrown into the lake of fire someday (Revelation 20:15) is either that they are NOT truly sorry for all their bad deeds they’ve done throughout their lifetime OR will try to “claim” (before God) they’re sorry (but aren’t TRULY sorry, only sorry they “got caught”). In other words, they’ll be the epitome of “face-value repentance”.

On the flipside, the very few people who DO make it into the Lamb’s Book of Life (God’s record book of all his FAITHFUL servants) will have what’s called GENUINE REPENTANCE. They will be sorry NOT ONLY for the hurt they’ve caused themselves and others but for the major hurt they’ve caused to GOD ALMIGHTY *HIMSELF!* They’ll be grieved at their very hearts over the “broken heart” of God over their sin(s)! 

Signs a person is TRULY sorry/repentant:

1). They realize just how “damaging” the sin(s) are to themselves and others and to Almighty God

2). They pray to the good Lord to remove the sin(s) from their life

3). They work about in ways in order TO banish the sin from their life (ex: an alcoholic will stop drinking, a drug addict will work to become clean, a person with severe anger issues will get some anger-management counseling, etc.)

Signs a person is NOT truly repentant/sorry:

1). They stop the behavior “once caught” but then quickly take back up the behavior again “when no-one’s looking”

2). They don’t see their “sin” AS sin or as “bad” of a sin as it SHOULD BE

3). They cry tears of pain, saying or claiming how sorry they are, but then immediately take back up the behavior once God/people around them have forgiven them for “said behavior”

I hope this will help you distinguish true, genuine repentance from “face-value repentance”. In other words, a person can APPEAR in the face to be “most grieved” over their “sin”, but the inside of their spirit may feel otherwise!

In other words, the inside of their SPIRITS may be saying, “ah, come on, it wasn’t/it’s not THAT bad!” while the outward expression on their face might say, Oh, please forgive me, O how sorry I AM!”

Looks can be deceiving. So be forewarned. If a person says they’re sorry, make sure they actually mean it. And if YOU yourself say you’re sorry to God and to others, make sure that YOU actually mean it! 

May this post serve as a lesson to us ALL (myself included). Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Coming ECONOMIC COLLAPSE: Are YOU Ready?

For years and years and years, many have heard “conspiracy theories” about how ALL world economies would someday (like a domino effect) “PERMANENTLY CRASH” all at once, with little or no warning! And then, as a result, a “one world global leader” would “gallantly” come onto the world scene, “appear to be the answer to all the world’s problems” and would then quickly propose the idea of a “ONE WORLD CURRENCY & ECONOMY”, (and consequently, a one world government and one world universal religion) and the like.

This is also known as the “New Age Enlightenment/One World Consciousness/COEXIST/Universalist Religion/INCLUSION/TOLERANCE Movement”. True Christians have been warning about these things FOR YEARS! And most people wrote those folks off as “conspiracy theorists” or “crazy”.

HOWEVER, judging by today’s world news headlines, it turns out these “folks” may NOT have been so “crazy” afterall but that they were actually ONTO SOMETHING!

1). http://www.wsj.com/articles/venezuelas-food-shortages-trigger-long-lines-hunger-and-looting-1440581400

2). http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/stock-up-on-canned-food-for-stock-market-crash-warns-former-gordon-brown-advisor-10469509.html

3). http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-08-24/latin-american-currencies-sink-to-22-year-low-as-stocks-tumble

4). http://www.naturalnews.com/050888_Greece_barter_economy_financial_collapse.html

Sadly, these 4 articles are just a SMALL SAMPLE of all the “World Economies” that are FALLING APART, TODAY! Greece and China were just the “starter points”. Now, just like a domino effect, OTHER world economies are failing as well! Venezuela, Spain, etc. [Plus, we don’t have to look very far in today’s world headlines to know how the left is preaching “tolerance and diversity, one world consciousness/one world religion, etc.!]

In fact, the bible ITSELF even talks about a time such as THIS — where a New World Order will soon take place! [Revelation 13: 16-18, Revelation 17:13, Psalm 2:1-2 OLD TESTAMENT, Daniel 7:25, Daniel 8:23-24, etc.]

But one thing is for sure! Rather you’re ready for it or not, a “New World Order” is coming! A one world economy, one world religion and one world government! It’s been prophesied in the bible and secretly in the making “by the elite” FOR YEARS!

EMPTY MARKET SHELVES IN GREECE2

EMPTY STORE SHELVES IN GREECE, 2015

Look at the above pictures long and hard. Do you REALLY think that what’s happening in Greece, Venezuela, Spain, etc. can’t happen here in America someday soon? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE!

Question: What are YOU gonna do when the economy crashes — HARD? When banks FAIL, when people RUSH to the store and try to grab everything off the store shelves? When people try to break into businesses, gas stations, cars, you and/or your neighbor’s home(s), in order to try to steal what food and provisions you may have? When the ONLY solution left that the world offers is to “receive the mark of the Anti-Christ/the One World Global Leader” on your right hand or your forehead in order to be able to buy or sell? 

What will YOU do, in that scenario? Will YOU take your own life, in despair? Will YOU bow down to fear, abandon God and everything you’ve ever known in your spiritual walk with Christ and CAVE IN TO THE DEVIL/ANTI-CHRIST by taking his mark, so that you can buy food in the “New World Order”?

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

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

Translation? Your country’s economy (rather in the U.S. OR abroad) WILL “crash”, someday soon. And the ONLY WAY you’ll be able to buy or sell food in the “New World Order” is IF you take the mark of the Anti-Christ/the one world global leader on your right hand or your forehead. But IF you take the mark, you will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY and the smoke of your torment [in the flames] will rise for ever and ever! 

So you got to make the decision: do I take the mark NOW and suffer IN FLAMES for ETERNITY later, or do I FORSAKE THE MARK NOW, possibly starve to death in this world, and GAIN ETERNAL REWARDS in the NEXT WORLD [The Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ Almighty – The TRUE, **BIBLICAL** JESUS CHRIST – AND NOT THE “FAKE JESUS”, coming as “The Antichrist”?] The choice is up to you, folks! But don’t day I didn’t warn you!

But I WILL say it’s MUCH, MUCH better to starve to death of hunger and GAIN ETERNAL LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST, rather than to FORSAKE Jesus Christ, take the mark and LOSE ETERNAL LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST FOR ALL ETERNITY!

You might be a family with small children. But even then. DON’T TAKE THE MARK UNDER **ANY CIRCUMSTANCES**! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Many in the “Christian community” (and even some within the “secular/economist” community) are encouraging people — ALL people — not just Christian people — to go out and buy bottled water, canned food and non-perishables —  

http://investmentwatchblog.com/whoa-british-official-warning-public-stock-up-on-food-water-canned-goods-cash-enough-to-survive-1-month-banks-may-closestock-meltdown/

— Because they KNOW what’s coming! In fact, it’s been said that even many of America’s “richest people” are now fully leaving America in droves and going to their houses overseas. They KNOW something bad’s brewing here in America…..

But yet, on the OTHER hand, you have many Christians asking, “yeah, so what? what’s the big deal? Nothing’s gonna happen to America!” Oh yeah, people? You wanna make a bet? GOD’S WRATH IS SEETHING UPON AMERICA RIGHT NOW! Where you gonna hide, when his wrath is FULLY unleashed upon America and all its “lukewarm Christians”, non-believing inhabitants, and those of different “false world religions?” For there IS no hiding from God’s Wrath, folks! When it’s unleashed IN FULL on America, it’ll be unleashed IN FULL and there’s absolutely NO stopping it! And it’s not a question of IF but a question of WHEN!

[And ONLY those people who TRULY obey and trust Yeshua/Jesus Christ — the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, not the FAKE PAGAN one taught in churches today — will have the protective seal of God placed on their foreheads by God’s angels! And rather they will do this visibly or invisibly remains of question but it will be done, nonetheless! Translation? While God’s people WILL suffer persecution for their faith, they WILL be supernaturally protected from all the “calamity” that will befall the Earth during the soon coming GREAT TRIBULATION….]

Matthew 24:21-27 describes it as THIS: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. 

Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be“. 

The legalization of gay marriage in all 50 states (and the political lobbying by the left to MAKE it legal in all 50 states) is what originally started it all. And the SHINING of the rainbow colors on the outside of the White House? Look out, folks! We’re practically at the “Abomination of Desolation” talked about in Matthew 24! 

Severe drought, animal die-offs, plagues, floods, wildfires, *economic fluctuations*, etc.? That’s just a small TASTE of God’s punishment for wicked America and wicked mankind! It will get worse…….much, much worse……..and if your faith isn’t in the place where you would die for your faith in Jesus Christ right now in this very moment, then you need to pray to GET that faith! Because truth be told, tomorrow’s not guaranteed! America could be bombed tomorrow……hit by an EMP! Who knows what……..But we MUST be prepared……For whatever may come our way. 

God’s Blessing was on America for the longest time, due to our love of HIM and his Written Word (The bible) and our close ties with Israel. However, the legalization of abortion in 1973 started to kindle his anger against this nation. But since there was still a sizeable portion of the American population that adhered to him and his word, it was a slow-burning anger. However, around the year 1995 or so, things started to change. “Gay Pride Parades” started being spoken of, homosexuals started saying, “I was born this way”, Ellen’s character on TV came out as “gay”, etc.

And this is when the “cultural and moral” consciousness of American “Christian society” started to SHIFT. Because all of a sudden, Christians started buying INTO the “But I was born this way” LIE (from the pits of Hell!) Plus this is also around the same time that the Written Word of God (specifically, the King James Version bible) started going out the window, metaphorically speaking…..bit by bit and little by little. And here in the year 2015, hardly NO-ONE in America worships God AT ALL! It has become SO BAD, in today’s country and in today’s WORLD!

And with the legalization of gay marriage in America and the Iran Nuclear Deal, I think it’s safe to bet that the Lord has “HAD IT” with America! We — as a nation — as a whole — have now decided to fully turn our back on Him! So NOW guess what, folks? He’s now going to fully turn his back on US – as a nation! Think of the most violent thunderstorm you’ve ever seen in all your life — that’s just a very small taste of His Divine Wrath! Imagine if His Wrath were unleased IN FULL upon America, one of these soon days! Can you IMAGINE? 😦

However, something really interesting in light of all of this is what Sir Issac Newton pointed out about the End Times! He’s quoted as saying, “About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies, & insist on their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor & opposition.” 

And we know that Sir Isaac Newton was a CHRISTIAN! 🙂 Therefore, we know he was talking about BIBLICAL PROPHECIES in the bible! 

But sadly, many “Christians” out there today do NOT take bible prophecy or even the bible itself LITERALLY! [Which makes me ask the question: if you don’t believe in the bible at all or certain parts of it, why even follow it at all? Cause it’s either all true or it isn’t, right folks?] Although I submit to you today in the depths of my spirit that it’s true……it’s ALL true……EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. How do I know this? Because one, everything that Jesus spoke of in my near-death experience is now coming to pass……JUST LIKE HE SAID IT WOULD!

Plus two, I won’t even mention about all the latest archaeological finds, scientific laws, complex DNA/micro-biological systems that actually PROVE the Genesis account in the bible!] The evidence for the bible’s 100% truth is ALL AROUND YOU…….if you’re TRULY seeking to find it!

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

And speaking of having strong enough faith to DIE for your faith in Jesus Christ and to DEFY the Anti-Christ/global leader by NOT taking his mark to buy and sell: 

Revelation 12:11 states: “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death“. 

So what is that part of the passage stating? It’s stating that the people who GLADLY and WILLINGLY died FOR Christ did NOT coward out, did NOT deny Jesus Christ upon the threat of death/forced conversion/a gun being pointed at their head/etc., PROUDLY and BOLD gave their testimony OF Jesus Christ to others and also did NOT foolishly try to PRESERVE their lives by “pretending to convert to Islam” OR by “taking the mark”, in order to be able to buy and sell and the like.

Because think about it: if you forsake your faith in Jesus Christ at the very first sign of persecution, then you truly didn’t have any faith in him at all. If you deny Christ in front of others, Jesus Christ will deny YOU in front of the Heavenly Father! Matthew 10:32-33 in the New Testament attests to this fact!

Remember all the “looting” and “flash mobs” that took place during various protests here in the U.S., most recently? That was just a very small “preview” of what things will REALLY look like when the kahbosh hits the fan! Banks and businesses will close! Food will be flying off the store shelves faster than the speed of light! People will lose all their money and once their food supply runs out, they will get desperate! They will loot other people’s homes for food! Some people might even get killed for a simple apple or can of corn! It will be THAT BAD! 

However, here’s the GOOD NEWS! While we WILL suffer persecution for the name of Christ, the Lord has also promised to protect his people at the time of tribulation! They will have the seal of God placed on their foreheads by the angels of God! (And my best spiritual guess is that the angels will probably do this invisibly…..but again, who knows……)

Plus not only that but remember when the heavenly Father rained down “manna” from heaven to feed the ancient Israelites in the desert for 40 years — when they no longer had any food with them? Therefore, who’s to say that Jesus Christ can’t also somehow supernaturally provide food for his “elect” down here on Earth — during what will soon become the greatest tribulation known to man — as soon as the “elect” run out of THEIR Earthly food supplies?

But other than stocking up on some canned goods and bottled water (so you WON”T have to take the mark of the beast to buy or sell, when the time comes), you can also train yourself/your body to need less food. How? Start eating much, much smaller portion sizes each day, 5-6 times a day, instead of 3 big meals a day…. That will shrink the size of your stomach somewhat and make your body “need” less food. And if you tend to drink lots of soda and sugary drinks and junk food, stop right now!

And start drinking filtered water & eating some fruits, veggies and protein like eggs/ground beef/turkey/chicken! And maybe even try to exercize a bit from time to time! Because you NEED your body to be in great shape, to be able to endure any number of things, during the “Great Tribulation”. You might have to go without food for 2 or more days, you might have to sprint/run/swim a long distance in an emergency, etc. The bottom line is, BE PREPARED!

The “food line” in Venezuela (down below) looks pretty “tame”. But I’d be willing to bet that any “food line” in the U.S. would be much more “violent” by comparison. Why? Because in Venezuela, there’s a high number of Christians living there.

BALTIMORE RIOTS, 2015

BALTIMORE RIOTS, 2015

Here in America, we’ve become (as a whole) one of the most godless countries in the WORLD! I’m really sorry guys, I really hate saying that and having to say that, but it’s true! America has just become SO evil, SO godless……..it’s amazing we’re EVEN still standing as a nation……even now…….Because quite honestly, I think one of the ONLY reasons that the Lord hasn’t fully struck America yet is DUE to his people here in America………even as few and far between as they ARE…….

But again, many people have NO IDEA that the economy’s about to crash……they’re out there living their lives as if they don’t have a care in the world! It’s sad, really….I see families with young children at my work all the time…..and I think, “Do they KNOW what’s about to hit America, someday soon? Do they care?” 

Sadly, many Christians and non-Christians alike (rather a non-believer or follower of a different religion) — for the most part — as a collective whole — just seem to have their heads buried in the sand! They, per say — DON’T read the bible, don’t know what’s in there, bible-prophecy wise, don’t know of the hellish times coming ahead (or tend to not care that much if they DO know).

They seem to think (as a collective whole) that our country is still standing NOW and will ALWAYS be left standing, while refusing to see the “signs of the times”. They are WHOLEY UNPREPARED for what we — as a nation – will soon face, someday! But then again, this isn’t just an “American thing”, it’s a WORLD-WIDE thing! For it’s NOT JUST America that’s turned its back on God/Jesus Christ Almighty! It’s actually the WHOLE WORLD — as a whole — that’s turned its back on God/Jesus Christ Almighty!

“So how did the world do that, as a whole?”, one might ask. Simple….It has embraced “Homosexuality” and “Gay Pride Parades” [thereby taking PRIDE in SIN, instead of BEING ASHAMED OF SIN!] It’s EMBRACED “Abortion” and falsely called it “Women’s Rights”. It has EMBRACED taking bibles and prayers OUT OF THE SCHOOLS! It has EMBRACED a PAGANIZED version of Christianity and DONE AWAY WITH the BIBLICAL, JEWISH JESUS CHRIST TALKED ABOUT IN THE BIBLE!

It has EMBRACED “Tolerance” and “Diversity” [Sin, in other words and the PROMOTION of it, thereof!] It has EMBRACED the persecution of TRUE/BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS World-wide! It has EMBRACED false religions such as Buddhism, Islam, Catholicism, Mormonism, Hinduism, etc. It has EMBRACED the New Age/False Enlightenment Movement! It has EMBRACED things like Pride, Materialism, Lust, Greed, Vanity, Etc.!

The World has turned ITS back on God Almighty/Yeshua/Jesus Christ! So now HE, in turn, will now fully turn his back on IT! Does that SCARE you a bit, folks? IT SHOULD! My hope of this post (as well as this entire blog) is to teach you THE TRUTH about these things, so that you’re no longer kept in the dark by Satan and his “operatives” (both demonic and human). It is also my hope that Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ will open up your eyes before it’s too late and before your soul becomes lost FOR ETERNITY! 

In fact, there’s a ministry out there called “Open Your Eyes People”, run by Anita & Ignacio Fuentes. [You can look her up on Youtube]. She teaches the truth about a great many things, including bible prophecy matching news headlines, etc.! She doesn’t sugarcoat things or support UNBIBLICAL things like Abortion and Homosexuality like you see MANY, MANY pastors do the in the churches today!

(But what’s really sad is that today’s pastors – as a whole – are just BEYOND “LOST”, spiritually speaking! In fact, I just read an article today that over 400 of them quit due to the Ashley Madison hack! Seems like a SCORELOAD of them are having affairs on their wives! And their poor congregants are being led like lambs to a spiritual slaughter! That’s WHY I’m telling you folks and HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU folks here on this blog for a very long time to GET OUT OF THE CHURCHES WHILE YOU STILL CAN!)

Read your King James Bible AT HOME and develop your OWN personal relationship with Jesus Christ! A TRUE spiritual relationship that’s not FORCED, that’s not COMMERCIALIZED, that doesn’t just feel like GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS, or one that “depends on donations”, etc. For I’ve learned FAR MORE about Jesus Christ and his TRUE gospel at home in my own spare time than I EVER learned about him in a “commercialized church”. In fact, John Oliver has EXPOSED the churches for what they REALLY are — money grabbing machines!

And many Christian pastors want to tarnish his name because of it…..But ya know what? Mr. Oliver actually did a good service by exposing what REALLY goes on in the churches today — as a whole! I honestly believe that God (for whatever reason) is using him in these last days to take the Christian sheep AWAY FROM THE SPIRITUAL SLAUGHTER OF THE CHURCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And once more, Mr. Oliver even seems to feel TRULY bad for all the people that the church has “duped”, financially speaking!

Do you ever see any public Christian figure out there speaking about what the church and mega-pastors are doing to “Christians” today, financially and spiritually speaking? And if so, have you noticed how much “hate” that public Christian figure gets, when so? Things are just CRAZY, these days! People are calling what’s evil good (homosexuality, abortion, envy, cleavage-showing, materialism) and what’s good (humility, modesty, traditional marriage, the appreciation of life) evil! 

Isaiah 5:20 has THIS to say on the matter: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

So I leave you with THREE questions:

1). Are YOU prepared for the coming One World Order and what all “hellishness” it will entail upon Christians — TRUE, biblical-roots Christians? In other words, are YOU ready to fully persecuted for your faith, rather it be severe mocking of your faith, torchure, fines, imprisonment, etc? 

2). Are YOU ready to die for your faith in Jesus Christ, if necessary? Rather it’s from refusal to take the mark someday, refusal to renounce your faith, etc? In other words, if someone pointed a gun at your head 5 minutes from now and asked you if you’d be willing to die for Christ, would you say YES? Do you HAVE the type of faith and 100% boldness REQUIRED to say YES? 

3). What are YOU doing to get prepared for the GREAT TRIBULATION and/or possible martyrdom in the name of Jesus Christ someday? If you don’t have the type of faith that’s STRONG ENOUGH to die for Jesus Christ someday, what are you doing (if anything) to try to GET that type of faith? 

 

 

Be DOERS Of The Word And NOT Just Hearers, ONLY!

Believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for ANYONE, here!

We can know every word of scripture there is to know………but if we don’t DIRECTLY APPLY what we know about the Word of God to our LIVES, then the Word of God has NO true *root* in us; in our mind, heart, body or SOUL!

James 1: 19-25 in the New Testament states: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” 

In other words, James 1:19-25’s telling us not just to READ about the Word of God but to APPLY the Word of God DIRECTLY to our lives!

The Written Word of God (The Bible) tells us to do MANY things! For example, we are to:

  • Help those less fortunate than us. When you pass by a homeless person (rather or not they have a sign asking for money/food), do you actively GIVE them a meal or money for some food, for instance?
  • Preach the gospel of Salvation/Jesus Christ to others. Are you actively telling others about Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua and how he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, in some way, shape or form? Be it a blog, ministry, Youtube videos, in person testimony, etc.? 
  • Forgive those who’ve hurt us. Have you forgiven all the people who’ve hurt you? If not, have you PRAYED to be ABLE to forgive them? The bible says that if WE don’t forgive OTHERS for things they’ve done against US, that the Lord also won’t forgive OUR “sins/trespasses” against HIM/ALMIGHTY GOD!
  • Get full-water immersion baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. As soon as we truly BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and his gospel, we should desire to get full-water-immersion baptized in his name and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit! 
  • Have no idols or graven images! Have you gotten rid of that Buddha or Krishna statue? That golden “trophy”? The dream catcher? Carved images? Hung paintings of this or that on the wall? Statues (EVEN IF and *ESPECIALLY IF* they’re *Catholic saints/DEMONS*?) Images of dragons, Darth Vader, Harry Potter characters, etc? 
  • Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ AND his words! Have you TRULY trusted Jesus Christ with your LIFE? Would you TRULY trust Jesus Christ to get you through THE MOST difficult situations in your life such as witnessing to homosexuals, knowing exactly what to do if and when someone points a gun at your head, etc.? And do you trust that the bible is 100% sure and that everything will come to pass as the Lord SAYS it will come to pass?
  • Love our neighbor as ourselves. Have you hated anyone recently? If so, you haven’t been truly applying the written Word of God to your life! 
  • ETC. ETC., YOU GET THE POINT!

And then, Matthew 25: 14-3o, we get the Parable of the Faith Servant Vs. Disobedient Servant and it goes like THIS:

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 

Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 

After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”. 

In this case, “talents” is referring to ancient biblical “gold or silver coins” (as far as I know). But in MY opinion, it can also have double-meaning. In TODAY’S terms, the “talents” COULD be money in SOME cases, but in many others, it can also mean “talents” and “abilities” (IN GENERAL).

The bible says in Matthew 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey“.

So in other words, in the parable, each man was given talents, according to his “ability”. What does “ability” mean in this case? Does it mean workmanship ability in the temporal working world? Or is it talking about workmanship ability in the SPIRITUAL world? Or could it be a combination of BOTH? The bible doesn’t really specify. But there’s no doubt in my mind that if Jesus were to speak this parable to the modern day world of 2015, that he’d be referring to BOTH.

Romans 12: 6-8 states: Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness”. 

Truth be told, we ALL have different talents & abilities. And it’s how we USE those talents and abilities to further the kingdom of God on Earth that matters and that’ll also show WHERE we’ll stand with God/Jesus Christ on the fateful Day of Judgement!

For example, are you good at writing? Start a blog, write a book, produce Facebook notes about Jesus/Salvation, etc. Are you good at photography? Use photography to GLORIFY God’s creation! Are you a good public speaker? Get involved in politics or podcasting/radio or another public forum, in order to glorify the God of the bible! Do you have the power of persuasion? Perhaps street preaching might be good for you.

Are you good at learning and/or speaking foreign languages? Perhaps a missionary trip’s in store for you. Are you good at mathematics? Perhaps the Lord God wants you to use your mathematical abilities to talk about the MATHEMATICAL IMPOSSIBILITY of anything other than Jesus Christ BEING the fulfilled Messiah of Mankind [as over 330+ Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament…….the statistical chances that even ONE man could simultaneously fulfill even just 48 of these, is ASTRONOMICAL BEYOND COMPARE!] 

Are you artistically gifted? You could use your art to GLORIFY God by illustrating Christian books or stories, creating beautiful Christian bible verse cards or creating 3D animated Christian-themed movies or videogames, etc. Are you gifted at singing? You could use your good singing voice to GLORIFY God and to USE your beautiful God-given voice to motivate others to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth! You get the picture……..

But basically, we are use our “spiritual gifts” and “talents” in order to bring HIM glory and in order to FURTHER the Kingdom of God on Earth! And remember that the Kingdom of God on Earth lives WITHIN us! We are to be the EMBODIMENT of that Kingdom! 

Because remember, church is not a place we “go to”, for we “ARE” the church! We, the body/assembly of believers are “the church”! Therefore, we are not “to GO to church”, we are to BE “the church!”

That’s essentially what it means to be a DOER of the written word of God (the  bible) and not just a HEARER, ONLY! 

I hope and pray that ALL who read this will become DOERS of the written Word of God (the bible) and not just hearers, only! Amen. 

 

 

The Satanic Deception Behind Homosexuality/The Gay Movement

Many people have wondered if all Christians/Messianic Jews “hate” gays. In fact, most people automatically assume that ALL bible-believing, bible-adhering Christians/Judeo-Christians “hate” gays, but that’s just not true. Just like the Lord Jesus Christ, we love gay people UNCONDITIONALLY. But also like Jesus, what we DON’T love is their sin of lust/sodomy. Why? Not only because the bible says it’s a sin in both the Old AND New Testaments but because they are DECEIVED by Satan and his demons!

Now, what do I mean by that? Let me explain.

Look at abortion, for example (and that’s just one of the many examples I’m going to use, here). The “Women’s Liberation Movement” has somehow convinced women that “abortion is healthcare”, “my body, my choice”, and “abortion on demand”. In other words, the W.L.M has more or less BRAINWASHED women everywhere into thinking that “abortion is liberation”, “abortion is good”, etc.

But what’s REALLY behind abortion? Answer: Cutting babies out of their mother’s womb, limb by limb or “bleeding them out”! And WHO is really behind abortion? Answer: Satan and his “operatives” (both demonic and human).

Why would Satan hate “unborn children?”, you may ask. Answer: Because they are made in the image of God, that’s why! And AS the image of God, they represent LIFE and LIVING, which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what Satan represents! For Satan represents DEATH & DESTRUCTION. So in other words, EVERY thing that’s created in the image of God, SATAN HATES! And he wants to destroy! And the ONLY way he can destroy it if he can’t get rid of said thing is to PROFANE IT!

So guess what ANOTHER thing is that Satan hates? Yup, you guessed it: the TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE (between man and a woman) and the TRADITIONAL FAMILY. And BECAUSE two women and two men can’t have NATURAL SEX where procreation occurs, they have to have UN-NATURAL SEX and that’s why it’s called SODOMY.

But sadly, Satan has DECEIVED homosexuals/bisexuals/trans into thinking that lust for and with the same sex is “normal”, when in all reality, it’s a SPIRITUAL SICKNESS to believe something that goes AGAINST one’s natural God-given biology! So in other words, ALL homosexual people (rather homo or bi) are under SEVERE DEMONIC OPPRESSION! Yup, you heard me right.

It’s the spirit of LUST! It’s a JEZEBEL-TYPE SPIRIT and this LUST DEMON is POWERFUL! It’s like a 7-in-1 type demon! And it doesn’t discriminate whom it spiritually attacks! It’ll spiritually attack ALL across the board: young and old, rich or poor, every nationality and religion, it doesn’t matter! And it’s very likely the same exact type of DEMON SPIRIT that was attacking and infiltrating Mary Magdalene in the New Testament, BEFORE she got Saved in the name of Jesus Christ! And this demon attacking Mary Magdalene was SO powerful that she had to have it EXORCIZED out of her by JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF!

And BECAUSE many gay/bi/trans people don’t ever try to call out to Jesus Christ to SAVE them from homosexual lust/the gay lifestyle, they’re ABSOLUTELY HELPLESS against this powerful Jezebel-type 7-in-1 demon taking ahold of their mind, heart, body and SOUL! IT’S JUST SO SAD AND BREAKS MY HEART TO PIECES! THESE PEOPLE, THESE GAY ACTIVISTS ARE **SO DECEIVED**! AND THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW IT! Satan (through his most powerful lust/lascivious demons) have TRICKED homosexuals into BEING homosexuals! I’m dead serious on this, folks!

But the thing about Satan and his demons is that they can APPEAR as angels of light. They can TAKE what’s “wrong” in God’s eyes (such as homosexuality and abortion, for instance), make it “seem” right and then turn around and “embrace” the “deceived person” with warm smiles on their faces! That’s how they roll, folks! Cause think about it, Satan’s goal (according to the bible) is to steal, kill, (deceive), and destroy…….

So think about it…..how is he gonna be successful in DOING that if he came at a person and more or less said: “Hi, I’m Satan and I’m here to deceive you! I want to successfully trick you into thinking that you’re a homosexual and that homosexuality is good/okay! Plus I even want to get you ADDICTED to homosexual lust/sex, so that I can you take you away from the saving gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ, so that you’ll burn in eternal flames of God’s judgement someday! haha!”

See, if Satan and his demons revealed themselves to “gender confused” people like that, those people would be smart enough to REALIZE that they were being spiritually deceived. So BECAUSE Satan and his demons want to TRAP such people into a lifetime of homosexuality, they know they have to do it subtlety. They usually pick victims that are easy to spiritually victimize.

These would be kids that come from a broken home or that were sexually abused/molested or had an absent or emotionally distant parent, children/teens that “experimented” with a friend of the same gender and found “it felt good” and/or teens/adults that never had much success with the opposite sex. These poor kids/people are “easy pickins” for the Devil and his demons; they’re already broken to begin with. So he usually has no problems convincing certain kids/people that they’re “gay” or “bi”.

Satan can also use the schools, LGBT Activists, Planned Parenthood, media propaganda and even other numerous ways to try to get young children of the same sex to “experiment” on each other. And once and if the same-sex children DO experiment on each other and find “it feels good”, they automatically assume they’re “bi/gay” and it can also be like an “addiction” as well.

And then, these children then turn into “gay/bi teenagers”, who then turn into “gay/bi adults”, who then oftentimes turn into “gay/bi activists“. And once they become “gay activists”, they’re SO far down the rabbit hole of the Satanic gay lifestyle, that they very rarely are able to come out of it, unless they REALLY, TRULY search the scriptures and seek to know Jesus Christ Almighty with all their heart, soul and MIND, before it’s too late!

But what about those adults who’ve seemed to have had NO PREVIOUS GAY/BI EXPERIENCE and then **WENT GAY**, as it were?

  • One guy was happily married before attending the Burning Man Festival out in Nevada one year. And during a post interview, he was quoted as saying: “What if you had discovered that the WAY you had been doing things earlier — living as a straight guy in a straight marriage — was WRONG?” It wasn’t “I’ve been gay for a long time and I’ve finally come out”. It was “what if you discovered that the WAY you had been living life as a normal straight person was WRONG?” It was like someone put a demonic “homosexual curse” on that man or something!
  • A woman was happily married to her husband for FIVE YEARS, when she then all of a sudden started having these killer lesbian feelings OUT OF NOWHERE the last 2 years of her marriage and left her husband for a WOMAN!
  • A young girl goes off to college and “becomes gay” or a young man goes off to college and “becomes gay” [And in most cases, these young people have REJECTED their “Christian upbringing” and WHEN they do so, they OPEN themselves up to be deceived by demonic spirits!
  • And those that claim they are gay AND Christian? They’ve STILL been deceived by Satan if they think God/Jesus Christ is “ok” with homosexual behavior! For the bible gives VERY CLEAR WARNINGS AGAINST IT! But what’s happening there in that case is that Satan’s pissed off about the homosexual “being Christian” — as it means they’re one step closer to the biblical truth of God/Jesus Christ/Salvation — and so Satan tries to “keep them actively gay/focused on same-sex attraction” in order to take them AWAY from God/God’s eternal truth in the bible! Make sense?]
  • Many “lesbians” today were once happily married to MEN!
  • Many “homosexuals” today were once happily married to WOMEN!

What’s going on here, folks? What’s making these seemingly STRAIGHT people turn GAY? And these weren’t people that were “living in the closet”, either! These were folks who were once HAPPILY MARRIED to the opposite sex! So either someone is putting a DEMONIC CURSE on these folks OR they’re just spiritually letting their lust and greedy desires get the best of them or both!

Because basically, that’s ALL homosexuality really is…LUST…….(and even GREED…..”I should have what *I* want to lustfully have, instead of what God/Jesus Christ wants me to have and God/Jesus Christ had better be OK with it, OR ELSE” type of thing). 

But gay/bi lust is NOT a natural God-given lust designed for marriage between a man and a woman……it’s DEMONIC LUST…….But again, pre-marital sex and extra-marital sex qualifies as DEMONIC LUST, TOO, just to specify………In fact, ANY type of lust that happens OUTSIDE of “traditional marriage between a man and a woman” is qualified as DEMONIC LUST………

The “natural lust” that a man and woman feel for each other IN marriage (in addition to the romantic and emotional love they feel for one another) is the ONLY case in the bible where I can think of that would would even REMOTELY qualify as “righteous lust”, if ever there be such a thing as “righteous lust”.

But sex and marriage between ONE man and ONE woman, with natural children is what Satan HATES! So he had to create a PROFANE MODEL of God’s design! So how did he accomplish THAT, you might ask? By GAY MARRIAGE & GAY ADOPTION! In other words, THE WHOLE ENTIRE GAY MOVEMENT, IN AND OF ITSELF!!!!!!!

And many people don’t realize this but the WHOLE ENTIRE GAY MOVEMENT, ABORTION/PLANNED PARENTHOOD CULTURE and WOMEN’S SEXUAL LIBERATION MOVEMENT, all in and of themselves, were DESIGNED by Satan and his demons to DESTROY TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY!

But even further than that, the sole goal of each movement was TO DESTROY THE BIBLE/ALL BIBLICAL MODELS AND MANDATES! Any “attack” on Traditional Marriage or the Traditional Family IS an open attack on the bible and God’s Written Word! Just like any attack on God’s Written Word can oftentimes be tied in to a blatant attack on the Traditional Family/Traditional Marriage, etc.

Another REALLY INTERESTING fact about the Gay Movement AND Women’s Lib Movements is that they were both prophesied in the bible more than 1,000 or so years ago! Yes, it’s TRUE! We read about them in the NEW Testament in the following bible passages:

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their OWN LUSTS, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation – 2 Peter 3: 3-4

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, PROUD, BOASTERS, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without NATURAL affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” – Romans 1: 22-32

Many homosexuals claim they don’t believe in Satan or Jesus Christ. Okay……. Then explain to me why all the famous movie stars out in Hollywood sell their souls to the devil for fortune and fame……? Certainly the Devil is real if people are willing to sell their very SOULS to him for money and riches, right?

And if Satan’s real, (and I can assure you 100% he IS), that means that Jesus Christ is real (and again, I assure you 100% he is, as I’ve SEEN him – during a Near-Death Experience! And once one SEES the Lord Jesus IN PERSON during a Near-Death Experience, there’s no “un-seeing” Him, MARK MY WORDS!)

But that brings to mind my next point………..

SEXUAL DEVIANCY seems to be the name of the game in today’s world (rather it’s pre-marital sex, extra marital sex, multiple partner sex, gay sex, incest/pedo sex, bestiality sex, etc.) and we have Satan and his demons (and the LACK of action from “The Church” for several years) to thank for that! And the whole entire “Gay Movement” just happens to be tied up into all this “Sexual Deviancy” Mess that the world has created for itself, today!

And you want to know what the REALLY, REALLY sad thing is? These gay activists whom hate the bible and Jesus Christ SO, SO, SO VERY MUCH? THEY’RE THE ONES THAT HE WANTS TO SAVE THE MOST! But he can’t Save/Redeem them of their sins if they don’t TURN TO HIM, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! In other words, he can’t save them, if they won’t let Him!

Many gay men go gay because it’s their sub-conscious attempt to “recreate a loving father figure in their lives”. Just like many women go gay because they ALSO want to sub-consciously attempt to “recreate a loving mother AND father figure in their lives”. But ya know what? Jesus Christ loves them! And he loves them with an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! For it wasn’t HE that “made them gay” but rather, it was Satan that made them gay!

Many gay activists worship Satan and look on to Satan as their “Father” or their “god”, but ya know what? It’s actually SATAN who HATES THEM! Just like it’s actually SATAN who wants all gays to burn in eternal flames, someday!

And oddly enough, it’s JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY (the one most gays hate so much) that wants to SAVE THEM FROM A LIFE OF SPIRITUAL/PHYSICAL DEPRAVITY, save them from their sins, give them eternal life and also become their “heavenly father” who loves them UNCONDITIONALLY & ETERNALLY! For it’s honestly not the Heavenly Father’s/Jesus’s will that ANY should perish:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” – [John 3:16]

Think of it THIS WAY: There’s this guy who says to another guy or a woman who says to another woman: “Hey, come here a minute, follow me”, with a seductive smile on his or her face. So the guy or woman follows. And the handsome guy or beautiful woman playfully teases guy #2 or woman #2, and gets him or her ADDICTED to gay sex. And finally one day, they’re both standing on a cliff’s edge and don’t even know it.

There’s people trying to warn them and call them AWAY from the cliff’s edge of destruction. And these “warners” keep telling them about the gospel of Salvation of Jesus Christ, telling the cliff’s edge peoples about how Jesus Christ can SAVE them from their sins but they won’t listen. They continue in their gay activity/sins and fall of the cliff into ETERNAL FLAMES!

Now, tell me: in the above scenario, how is that the WARNER’S fault? And how is that Jesus Christ’s fault? For these poor unfortunate people CHOSE to continue in their sins/homosexuality, CHOSE to ignore all the Lord’s prophets and CHOSE to continue in their sin, thus falling off the cliff. They KNEW they were at the cliff’s edge after slightly looking around and “examining” what the “Warners” were saying, plus they probably had atleast a preview of the flames down below……..thus, they CHOSE to go there to the eternal flames! Am I making this clear, folks?

Many people say that “Jesus sends people to hell/lake of fire/eternal condemnation”. But that’s not true. People that are sent to eternal condemnation SENT THEMSELVES THERE BY THEIR OWN CHOICE(S), rather than by Jesus Christ’s choice! For remember [as per John 3:16], that it’s not Jesus’s will that ANY should perish but that ALL should come to Salvation/Everlasting Life.

But just like nobody can receive a free “get your fines removed” card unless they physically GO to Hastings and get one, one can not RECEIVE Salvation and Everlasting Life unless one ASKS for it and GIVES UP/REPENTS of their sins! In other words, there’s a “divine catch” to it! It’s not just an AUTOMATIC, like many people in today’s world seem to assume!

Many people in today’s world (I kid you not) seem to think: “Jesus Christ already died for the forgiveness of mankind’s sin, therefore, I don’t need to do anything to get Saved!” (OH HOW SPIRITUALLY BLINDED THEY ARE! And we mostly have the “Wayward Church” to thank for that, in addition to Satan and his demons!)

I’ve even listened to SEVERAL testimonies of gay people. And 99% of the time, said people look “confused” and even unhappy. Sure, they look happy at “gay pride parades” where they THINK God and man approve of such “sexual perversion”, but what’s REALLY behind that seeming “sadness” of theirs? You can see it in their faces.

I personally (though I could be wrong) think it’s because there’s an INNER SPIRITUAL STRUGGLE going on with themselves — the voice of the Holy Spirit of God’s trying to CONVICT them of their “sin” of Sodomy, in order to SAVE THEM from a lifetime of sin, which will later lead to eternal condemnation, while Satan and his demons are trying to convince them to GO completely gay or “stay gay”).

I think many of them (rather they want to admit it or not) KNOW homosexuality’s wrong, within the depths of their spirits. But to try to shut off those feelings, they become gay activists, working ever so hard to JUSTIFY homosexuality to the general public.

Because maybe, just maybe, if they can get the whole entire general public to ACCEPT homosexuality, they can make that “condemning restless feeling” go away! Only, many of them later come to find that that “condemning restless feeling” does NOT go away, it even INTENSIFIES the more and more “legal” homosexuality becomes in this country, and they can’t seem to figure out WHY! [Those that secretly CARE about what God says about sin/sodomy, that is!] 

Well folks, I’ll TELL you why: it’s because Jesus Christ, believe it or not, by way of his Holy Spirit, is DESPERATELY trying to SAVE YOU from a lifetime of hurt and sin! DESPERATELY trying to save you! However, even HE has his “breaking point” where he’ll someday decide that enough is enough and that if people don’t want Salvation, he’s not going to FORCE it on people!

Just like he doesn’t FORCE eternal condemnation on people either, as people honestly CHOOSE to go there by how they live their lives! The old addage is TRUE which states: “TURN OR BURN”, and “JESUS’S WAY OR SATAN’S WAY”. There IS no other way! A person is either for SATAN or Jesus! There’s only TWO CHOICES, and two choices, ONLY!

ALL religions besides biblical-based Jewish-Christianity (including Atheism, Agnosticism) ARE of Satan, MARK MY WORDS! A person might think “well, I’m Catholic, so I’m good” or “I’m Hindu, so I’m good”. Well, guess what, folks? The Virgin Mary’s not gonna save you from your sins! Krishna’s not gonna save you from your sins! ALLAH’s not gonna save you from your sins! JOSEPH SMITH’s not gonna save you from your sins! Buddha’s not gonna save you from your sins! Quetzalcoatl’s not gonna save you from your sins! Satan and/or fallen angels SURE AS HECK ain’t gonna save you from your sins! For ONLY Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE can save you from your sins IF/WHEN YOU CALL OUT TO HIM IN REPENTANCE AND PRAYER!

Many in the gay lifestyle think they have NO WAY OUT! But Jesus Christ Almighty IS, CAN BE and WILL BE their way out, if they truly WANT to get out of that sinful, deviant lifestyle! MARK MY WORDS!

Here are just a few WONDERFUL EXAMPLES OF SUCH:

How to Read The Bible: A Beginner’s Guide

the bible made easy7 the bible made easy6

the bible made easy4 the bible made easy3 the bible made easy2 bible made easy4 bible made easy1

People will often use bible quotes on many things: news article, protest signs, movies, blogs, etc.

And for those of you who’ve NEVER stepped foot inside a Christian church and of whom did not/do not come from a religious background, you might possibly find all the different verse numbers confusing. And some of you might be wondering, “What do all those numbers mean? What do the colons in the middle stand for?” Well, let me tell you:

If, for example, someone references Psalms 30:12 for instance, it means they’re talking about BOOK of Psalms, CHAPTER 30, VERSE 12.

And IF someone references 2 Corinthians 13:5, it means 2ND BOOK of Corinthians, CHAPTER 13, VERSE 5.

Remember that it always goes by BOOK, CHAPTER, then VERSE.

The VERY FIRST VERSE of each CHAPTER will NEVER have a number “1” by it but instead will have the big CHAPTER NUMBER by it and then start listing the VERSE numbers underneath, starting with VERSE “2”, until the end of the CHAPTER.

For example, Genesis 3:1 [Book of Genesis, Chapter 3, Verse 1] DOES not have a “1” listed in the first verse, but INSTEAD just starts with BIG “3” IN BOLD [marking the start of the CHAPTER] and then has a small #2 at verse 2, on through the end of the chapter. Therefore, whenever someone references (whatever the chapter # is):1, you know they’re automatically referring to the FIRST VERSE **IN** THE CHAPTER!

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

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

===========

And if someone references 2 Corinthians 9: 5-14, it means 2ND BOOK of Corinthians, CHAPTER 9, VERSES 5-14!

===========

And if you’re reading a King James Bible, some of the words might trip you up and seem confusing to read at first. So I’ll clarify what they all mean:

[Thee = Your]    Example: “And I will establish my covenant betwixt me and thee….= “And I will establish my covenant between me and you/your generations after you”

[Thou = Your]    Example: “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers….” = Let no man despise your youth; but be you an example of the believers…”

[Thy/Thyself = Your]       Example: “Love thy neighbor as thyself= “Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

[Didst = Did]       Example: “Why didst thou therefore doubt?” = “Why Did You Doubt?”

[Thine = Your]    Example: “Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart” = “Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart”

[Thou Shalt Not/Thou Shalt = You Shall Not/You Shall]    Example: “Thou shalt honor thy mother & father” = “You shall honor your mother & father”

[Ye = You]           Example: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done unto you” = “For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you”

And whenever you see a word ending in “est”, just remove the “st” and you’ll have the root word! Same with “unto”. Just remove the “un” and you’ve got your word! 

Examples: Comest = Come, Seest = See, Hearest = Hear, Goest = Go, Knowest= Know, Unto = To/Into, Etc.  

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

The bible starts with the OLD TESTAMENT. This is the time in history BEFORE Jesus Christ was born. In other words, it’s “Pre-Jesus Time”. And the time of the New Testament BEGINS right before/around the time Jesus Christ is *spiritually conceived* in Mary’s womb, as a pre-born baby.

However, Jesus Christ DID make “pre-flesh appearances” in the Old Testament; these are known as “Christophanies”. But during the time of the NEW TESTAMENT, Jesus Christ came to Earth IN THE FLESH, as a newborn, born to the virgin Mary (& her husband Joseph) in Bethlehem!

In other words, the OLD TESTAMENT is BEFORE Jesus Christ was born in the flesh and the NEW TESTAMENT was the time Jesus Christ WAS BORN IN THE FLESH to the virgin Mary, up to 33 years later when he died during the crucifixion for mankind’s sins. However, 3 days later, he was resurrected and he remained on the Earth for 40 more days. At the end of that 40 days, he ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God the Heavenly Father! 😉

There were SEVERAL eyewitnesses to these events (the crucifixion and the ascension), even many who were not “Christian” at that time (namely, Romans). And yes, the New Testament continues EVEN AFTER Jesus ascended to Heaven and talks about “the church”, *post-ascension*, at the Feast of Pentecost and a little beyond.

Plus SEVERAL books in the bible point to BIBLE PROPHECY. It’s how God proves He is who he says HE is and how the bible proves it says what IT IS: the 100% written testimony of the Word of God and the Word of God is JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY!

But basically, the book of Daniel and Ezekiel in the Old Testament and the book of Matthew and Revelation in the New Testament give some very detailed descriptions about what’s going to befall the Lord’s people (as well as those who AREN’T the Lord’s people), at the End of Days, the Days in which we’re currently living in! [For example, the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states? That’s the beginning of THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION right there! GOD’S WRATH IS NOW UPON AMERICA!]

The Book of Revelation is the LAST BOOK in the NEW TESTAMENT. And the reason why it’s the last book is because it describes (IN DETAIL) what’s going to happen to the world in the End Days, the last days of human history. This is the time when GOD’S WRATH will befall the Earth! And all those who don’t put their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ Almighty will just be besides themselves with fear, because they won’t know what’s happening in the world!

Economies will crash! Inflation will RISE! Terror attacks will happen! And then, as a “response” to all this “chaos”, a world leader will come on the stage and will appear to be “the answer to everyone’s problems”. He will set up a one world government, a one world religion and a one world economy. People will think he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, but alas, he will be THE ENEMY OF MANKIND!

He will require ALL rich and poor, small and great, to get a “mark” on their right hand or their foreheads. And no man will be able to buy or sell, save he that has the mark. And the Lord says whoever takes the mark will be CONDEMNED FOR ETERNITY and thrown into THE LAKE OF FIRE!

And ALL people who don’t put their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ WILL be deceived by this man! The Christians call him “Anti-Christ”, while ALL OTHER RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD (Islam, Judaism, Hinduim, Shamanism, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc.) will think that this “Anti-Christ” is THEIR MESSIAH! He will PRETEND to “come in the name of peace” but his SECRET GOAL IS TO DESTROY MANKIND FROM WITHIN!

However, one day, Jesus Christ Almighty…..the BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST will return to Earth someday to defeat Satan and his “dark forces” ALTOGETHER, and also to set up his Millennial Kingdom. And all those who did NOT put their faith, trust, love and obedience into the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ will mourn with weeping, realizing that the whole entire time that they lived on Earth, they were WRONG! But by then, it’ll be too late for them and their hearts and souls will be CRUSHED for eternity! ;(

And all the peoples of the world that PUT their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty the whole time will REJOICE, for great shall be their rewards! They will also get to reign alongside Christ for 1,000 years in his Millennial Kingdom! Revelation chapters 21-22 DETAILS the “eternal resting place” for all the Lord’s true people! And it’ll be GLORIOUS! 😉

And remember: REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! NOW’S NOT THE TIME TO BE PLAYING AROUND WITH YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION, FOLKS! 

God Did Not Call The Church To Cowardice/Depraved Submission!!

Many Americans don’t know this but there USED to be a time here in The United States of America when prayer was not only ALLOWED in schools but when the bible (in and of itself) was the main curriculum in the schools/school system!

Religion in the schools Timeline:

1781  Congress approves the purchase of Bibles to be used in schools.

1783  First Noah Webster (Blue Book) Speller is published, with its opening sentence declaring: “No man may put off the law of God.”  This speller is widely used in American schools and is peppered throughout with Bible verses.  Later versions stated, “Noah Webster who taught millions to read but not one to sin.”

1796  In Washington’s Presidential farewell address to the nation he encourages America to learn Biblical teachings to sustain a moral and just country.

1802  Thomas Jefferson acting as President for Washington D.C. schools requires the Bible and the Watts Hymnal to be used in classrooms.

1808  Washington’s Farewell Address is published as a separate text book.  Washington’s Address is looked upon as one of the most important political documents in American history.  In the speech Washington emphases that for America to succeed it must have a moral society which can only come from roots in the Christian faith.  This text book is used until 1960’s.

1830  Dr. Benjamin Rush signer of the Declaration of Independence, letter is published in support of using the Bible as a school textbook.

1844  Girard proposes to teach morals without the Bible.  The Supreme Court rules that American schools are to teach Christianity using the Bible.  The case is argued and won by Daniel Webster. (Videl v. Girard)

1890  Supreme Court rules that America “is a religious people. . . . this is a Christian nation” as such it is fitting that its people would teach their children the Christian faith. (The Trinity Case)

1900  Virtually all school text books published to date have contained Biblical references or teachings.

1925  Tennessee governor signs law forbidding the teaching of evolution in public schools.  ACLU Lawyers take a school district to court in the famous Scopes Monkey Trial in an effort to have evolution taught in Tennessee Public Schools.

1925  Florida State legislators pass law requiring daily Bible reading in public schools.

1946  Dallas schools publish textbook titled “Bible Studies Course for New Testament.”  This book has many questions and answers about the life of Jesus Christ.

==============The Dividing Point When This Nation Turned Its Back on God===========

1948  Supreme Court rules that time set aside for prayer in public schools is unconstitutional. (McCollum v. Board of Education)

1962  Supreme Court rules that children may not recite a state written prayer in school (Engel v. Vitale).

1963  Supreme Court bans individual school prayer (Murry v. Curlett) and Bible reading in public schools (Abington Township School District v. Schempp).

1965  Supreme Court rules that a child may pray silently to himself if no one knows he is praying and his lips do not move.

1970  Governor Ronald Reagan signs “No-Fault” Divorce Bill

1973  Roe Vs. Wade LEGALIZES abortion

1980  U.S. schools report the lowest S.A.T. scores ever, after 18 straight years of decline following the 1962 ban on school prayer.

1980  Supreme Court rules that the Ten Commandments can not be posted in classrooms, “for a child might read them, reflect upon them and then obey them.”  (Stone vs. Graham) 

1985  Supreme Court strikes down Alabama law requiring schools to have a moment of silent meditation at the beginning of the day. 

1987  Supreme Court overturns a State Law requiring a balanced treatment of creation science and evolution. (Edwards vs. Aguillard) 

1992  Supreme Court rules Clergy may not offer prayer at graduation ceremonies.  (Lee vs. Weisman) 

2000  Supreme Court rules student initiated or student led prayer at football games is unconstitutional.  (Doe vs. Santa Fe Independent School District)

2004   Supreme Court upholds the words “One Nation Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.

2008   Christian run schools and most home schooling programs continue to produce students with higher academic test results then secular public schools.

2015 Supreme Court LEGALIZES gay marriage in all 50 U.S. States

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

So as you can see from the above Timeline, from 1948 & ONWARD, the Church just LET the dark side take over (more or less) and became SUBMISSIVE to the Federal Government and to the State! Why? Because the churches wanted Tax-Exempt Status, for one! Which I never understood, really. A pastor is just as much of an American citizen as a Christian lay person. So why should the Christian lay person have to pay taxes but the pastors of churches do NOT? There is grave injustice in that! Jesus Christ is UTTERLY ASHAMED of all the “Christian churches” today and that’s one of the reasons why!

And it’s a really, really sad day in America INDEED when the Supreme Court (which once upon a time actually UPHELD the laws of God) now does nothing but DEFIES the laws of God! OH HOW FAR THIS NATION HAS FALLEN! ;(

So tell me “churches”, was all that “tax-exempt status” WORTH IT, when you ended up having to COMPROMISE GOD’S WORD, in the end? Noah Webster said it best in the year 1783 when the opening sentence of his book stated, “No man may put off the law of God.”

Back in the year 1776, our nation here in America was off to a great start: It had Jesus Christ Almighty as its head & chief cornerstone. And look how wealthy & prosperous our nation had become, as a result! But just 62 years later, in the year 1838, Charles Darwin (who actually stole the “theory” from Alfred Wallace) proclaimed his theory of “Evolution” and that’s when all hell broke lose……that’s when the TRUE war on Christian religious liberty began in this country.

In fact, just a few years later, Girard, in 1844, proposed to teach morals WITHOUT the bible (as many people and “atheist leaders” try to do TODAY!) And that’s honestly laughable at best, since our moral laws are BASED on God’s laws. Remove all law based on God’s law and you’d HAVE no law (and consequently, NO morals!)

Therefore, I submit to you today that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to have morals without the bible since ALL morals/morality is BASED on the bible! And like I’ve said time & time again, if morality is “subjective”, who gets to decide what’s right and wrong? Just like who gets to decide what punishment (if any) should be enacted on a person who transgresses that “subjective morality” (or lack of it, should I say?) To say that one can have morals without God/the bible is REDUNDANT!

But yet, this is what I don’t get, have NEVER gotten and will NEVER get about the Lord’s people. Where were all the biblical/Jewish-roots Christians when “Emperor Constantine”, along with “Catholic bishops”, decided in 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea to make SUN-DAY (the FIRST day of the week) the “Sabbath Day”? Why were they not rising up in arms and revolting? Why were they not speaking out against the GRAVE INJUSTICE this had against the Lord’s people? Why did they just “sit there and take it”, collectively speaking?

And later on in history when Paganized/Roman Catholic holidays were INCORPORATED INTO “Christianity”, why were Jewish-roots Christians not also up in arms about THAT? And speaking out in MASS PROTEST?

And why did the Jewish-roots Christians just “sit and take it”, collectively speaking, when “Emperor Constantine” OUTLAWED the BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath and the Lord’s 7 Annual Holidays outlined in the bible that even Jesus Christ HIMSELF and his disciples celebrated in?

I suppose many of them grew tired and weary and were sick to death of having to fear for their LIVES all the time. So they just caved in…..and compromised in order to “keep the peace”, as it were [except for the very small few that SURVIVED the Inquisition & Catholic onslaught and still worship Jesus Christ in all his full glory & 7th day Sabbath/7th Annual Feasts, TODAY]. And lets face it, that’s REALLY no different than how “The Church” (as a whole) is, TODAY: It has COMPROMISED in order to “Keep The Peace!” But that brings to mind a certain bible passage to me:

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

You can mentally put the word “Church” in place of man and “they” instead of he, and “their” instead of “his” and the meaning of the passage is STILL the same!

In other words, that passage is more or less asking individuals AND the church (as a whole) about what good does it do them to compromise to keep the peace, when it can cost them their own soul? A very good question, INDEED! For the Lord Jesus Christ did NOT call “the church” [which is, the BODY OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST] to be COWARDS or to “make nice” with sodomy/sin(s). The Lord Jesus Christ called “The Church” [that is, once again, the BODY OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST] to be wise as serpents, gentle as doves and BOLD AS LIONS when it comes to contending for the Faith!

However, the more and more “world-friendly” the “organized church” BECOMES, the more MORALLY DEPRAVED/SUBMISSIVE/**COMPROMISED** it IS!!!!!! And the more “COMPROMISED” it is, the more EVIL it BECOMES! Today’s “Christian Church” (as a whole) that tolerates abortion, divorce, adultery, materialism, sodomy/homosexuality, etc? It’s just a CULT OF CORRUPTION! And in stark contrast to Jesus angrily over-throwing the money-changers’ tables in the Jewish Temple, LOOK at how many “mega-churches” have gotten in trouble lately for “money-swindling schemes”! Are you REALLY that surprised, folks?

And not only that but where WAS “The Church” when the Supreme Court took prayer out of the schools? Legalized abortion? Legalized gay marriage in all 50 states? When Reagan signed “No-Fault Divorce” into law? When the LGBT Mafia and Planned Parenthood PARADED the K-12 schools with all their “propaganda”? Where WAS the church, THEN? Answer: It was SILENT! Which is WHY there’s so much evil and debauchery in the world today, and specifically here in America! OH HOW FAR & MIGHTY THE CHURCH HAS FALLEN! 😦

RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR4 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

Many “Christians” stated they stopped going “to church” since there was TOO MUCH “HYPOCRISY”. But what it REALLY is, is THIS: The Modern-Day Christian Church is DEAD! It’s APOSTATE! It doesn’t contain the TRUE, everlasting, LIVING gospel of Jesus Christ! It DOES however, contain a FALSE CHRIST on a FALSE SABBATH with a FALSE GOSPEL with a FALSE CHURCH MODEL! And so to ME, it’s really NO WONDER that people are leaving “The Church” IN DROVES! They’re yearning for something MORE! Something more than what “commercialized Christianity” can give them!

And TODAY, I submit to you that you CAN have a personal, one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ Almighty! It’s called reading the King James Bible, front to back! And then, AS you read through it, slowly meditate on it and write down any Questions you might have. Pray to Jesus Christ about those questions. Bow down on your knees and pray and POUR YOUR HEART OUT TO HIM! He WILL listen to your prayers, MARK MY WORDS!

And then, as you read through your King James Bible and slowly meditate on what you read, the Lord Jesus Christ will REVEAL things to you……things in his written Word that you hadn’t seen before……..in other words, his written word will become all the more CLEAR to you and you will be spiritually enlightened and BROUGHT TO LIFE…..something that definitely would NOT happen in 98% of “churches”, today!

You will know from reading the King James Bible that you ARE a sinner and that the blood atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross is the ONLY way you can receive Salvation: By Grace Through Faith! And then and only then will the Lord Jesus open up your eyes, make you realize that YOU, along with every other human on this planet, is a sinner in NEED of Salvation! And then, as result, praying for forgiveness of your sins and REPENTING/STOPPING your sins should come very naturally!

And then IMMEDIATELY upon believing, become FULL-WATER IMMERSION baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (in a bathtub, shallow end of a swimming pool, etc.) All throughout the bible, people did NOT wait to become baptized. They requested to be baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist STRAIGHTAWAY UPON VERY FIRST BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST (THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE JEWISH MESSIAH!) Yet, he became Messiah TO THE WORLD…..not JUST the Jews!

And after and when you are baptized, you will feel OVERCOME with feelings of inner peace, joy, healing and ELATION! It’s the most HEAVENLY feeling I’ve ever felt in my ENTIRE LIFE! No moment in my life eclipses that moment when I became baptized! 😉

And then, right after you’re baptized, you’ll feel OVERWHELMED with the Holy Spirit and just want to start preaching Jesus Christ to EVERY person you come across! 😉 Kind’ve like when you’re in a relationship with your First Love and you can’t help but talk about that person to other people ALL THE TIME, just BEAMING with pride and joy? So it is with Jesus Christ after we very first become baptized!

But after awhile, just like with any Earthly or Romantic relationship, if we don’t put some EFFORT into the spiritual relationship we have with Jesus Christ, it begins to slowly die off over time, until it becomes practically non-existent:

“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent” – Revelation 2:4-5

And “The Church” (As A Whole), has left ITS “First Love” (collectively speaking), which is ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! Therefore, Jesus is giving us a DIRE WARNING up above in Revelation 2:4-5!

And in closing, I’d just like to say that “The Church” (TRULY/BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING) is NOT a “Building” but rather, A PEOPLE (in and of THEMSELVES), with Jesus Christ being the head/chief cornerstone!

Because remember that the TRUE “Church” of Jesus Christ is the BODY OF BELIEVERS THEMSELVES with Jesus Christ AS the chief cornerstone! It’s ONE gospel, ONE people, ONE unity! There ARE no “dissensions” or “denominations”! It follows the both the Old AND New Testaments! It celebrates the Lord’s 7TH-DAY BIBLICAL SABBATH & the Lord’s 7 Annual Holidays and DOES AWAY WITH ALL THINGS **PAGAN** (including Halloween, Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, etc.)….

It teaches that we’re ALL sinners in NEED of Salvation through Christ Jesus! It teaches REPENTANCE of sin! It teaches us to PRAISE ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST **CONTINUOUSLY** (through the good and the bad of our lives!) It teaches us to pray for forgiveness of sin! It teaches us to SPREAD THE GOSPEL ONTO OTHERS! And to love our neighbor as ourselves! Among many other things! In other words, it teaches a BIBLICAL/JEWISH Jesus, a BIBLICAL gospel, a BIBLICAL church model, and BIBLICAL holidays & commandments: the TRUE biblical gospel of Jesus Christ Almighty!

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY

Water Baptism: A Further Mark of Obedience to the Lord!

Many Christians today believe that they DON’T need to be baptized at all. However, according to the bible, there are over 7+ passages which explicitly state that full-water-immersion baptism is COMMENDED, immediately upon first believing in Jesus Christ! Yeah, you heard me right: FULL WATER-IMMERSION BAPTISM, not some “minor sprinkling” upon the forehead!

And though there were/are times/cases where a person is NOT able to get water baptized (the thief on the cross, people who are paralyzed/have no limbs, people who are lying gravely ill in a hospital bed, Syrian Christians who were beheaded before they had a chance to get baptized, etc.), those whom ARE able to get water baptized SHOULD, as it’s a further step of “obedience” to the Lord Jesus!

Let us examine the following bible passages down below:

Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned”

Luke 3: 21-22 “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased”

Mark 1: 9-11 “And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”

Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”

Mark 1: 4-5 “John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins”

Acts 8: 35-38 “Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him”

Romans 6:3-6 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin”

Galatians 3: 27 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ”

1 Peter 3: 21 “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ”

1 Corinthians 12: 13 “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit”

Acts 16: 31-33 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway”

John 1: 29-33 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost”

Matthew 3: 13-17 “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”

Luke 3:16 “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire”

During my Near-Death experience when I was around 2 years of age, Jesus himself made me dunk myself under the water and “get baptized in the spirit of truth”. Therefore, I know in my heart and soul that full-water-immersion baptism is REQUIRED! Jesus AND his disciples did it, as did his followers! The thief on the cross is the ONLY exception that I can think of, since the thief had NO WAY of having a full water immersion baptism. But everyone else that can do a full water immersion baptism is REQUIRED to, upon VERY FIRST believing in Jesus Christ! The disciples and Jesus’s followers got baptized IMMEDIATELY upon believing, WITHOUT DELAY! So should we………….

“A man who knows that he is saved by believing in Christ does not, when he is baptized, lift his baptism into a saving ordinance. In fact, he is the very best protester against that mistake, because he holds that he has no right to be baptized until he is saved.”  ~ Charles Spurgeon

“Baptism separates the tire kickers from the car buyers.”  ~ Max Lucado

“We may never be martyrs but we can die to self, to sin, to the world, to our plans and ambitions. That is the significance of baptism; we died with Christ and rose to new life”  ~ Vance Haver

“Baptism is faith in action.”  ~ Watchman Nee

“God’s people should be baptized because God commanded it, not because some church requires it.”  ~ John R. Rice

But all in all, water baptism represents the “ceremonial washing away of sins” and the “old life” and being baptized into the “new life”. It’s also the means by how Jesus Christ gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit/the spirit of truth. It’s how Jesus Christ gave ME the spirit of truth (during my NDE). So I can only speak from the bible and my own experience with water baptism. 

But let me specify, though. Baptism is NOT required for “Salvation”, alone. Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE is HIMSELF the way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins. For Salvation comes by Grace through FAITH + Obedience. So essentially, water baptism is one step closer in our submissive obedience to HIM and him, alone!
