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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 90:2

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

Isaiah 40:28

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

Hebrews 13:18

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

1 Timothy 1:17

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

John 1:1

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

John 8:58

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

2 Peter 3:8

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

Titus 1:2

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

1 Corinthians 2:7

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

Hebrews 1:8

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

Hebrews 1:2

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

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

Matthew 24:35

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

Matthew 5:17-18

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till ALL be fulfilled

John 14:15

“If ye love me, keep my commandments

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hebrews 13:8

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colossians 2:16-17

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

Acts 10:28

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

Matthew 15:16-20

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

========

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Also meditate on the FOLLOWING:

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and **FEW** there be that find it” – (Matthew 7:13-14)

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

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

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

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

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

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

JULY 27, 2017 UPDATE: Anita Fuentes does a MOST EXCELLENT VIDEO on the subject, which is why I’m including it, HERE: 

[NOTE: Please continue on to PART TWO of today’s message, as it contains VITAL and IMPORTANT information!] 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WARNING: Learn from MY Mistake!!!!

Many people on here might think that I’m somehow “perfect”, that I never make mistakes in trying to live a life for Yeshua/Jesus Christ, and that I never falter. But I’m here to tell you otherwise. As per Romans 3:23, I’m an imperfect being. I DO make mistakes from time to time in my attempts to live for Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

For example: this past “Christmas”, I tried like HECK to tell my overly traditional family member that I did NOT feel like celebrating Christmas this year and why. It turned into a BIG argument and two days later, I found myself being tempted to “cave in” so as to shut up their bitching, nagging and raving about it. AND…..not having the strength to argue and leave the house, I found myself “complacently” eating Christmas Eve dinner, and then later going into the living room on Christmas Eve to sit down (with the small “blasphemous” Christmas tree in the window).

Now, one day after Christmas, the guilt, shame and TERRIBLE feeling in the pit of my stomach is just EATING ME ALIVE ON THE INSIDE! I can HARDLY stand to live with myself, folks! And I just KNOW the Lord Jesus is HIGHLY, HIGHLY disappointed in me! And believe me, that’s the most absolute GUT-WRENCHING feeling in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

But the POINT I wanted to make in all of this is THIS: It’s much, much, MUCH better to have friends, church members and family members upset with you for NOT celebrating Christmas than it is for JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY to be upset with you FOR celebrating the “blasphemous” holiday of Christmas, EVEN IF IT’S ONLY CHRISTMAS DINNER!

I can only hope and pray that the Lord Jesus will forgive me for my most sinful, grievous mistake this year! In fact, I even tried to “compromise” on Christmas this year, as in, if I ONLY celebrated Christmas Eve dinner with family and did NOT open my presents in front of the Christmas tree and did NOT truly wish to celebrate Christmas AT ALL in my HEART, that I somehow wasn’t sinning against Jesus Christ, even though in the depths of my heart and soul, I think I knew better.

Before Christmas Eve and ON Christmas Eve, I kept praying and praying that maybe the power would go out or that the tree would just “disintegrate” (branches, too) in front of everyone’s eyes (as an “easy way out” from having to celebrate Christmas), but no such luck. The Lord Jesus Christ was TESTING ME to see how strongly and boldly I’d stick to his Word.

I even made what “I” thought was a justifiable excuse: but the Lord Jesus KNOWS my heart and that I do NOT want to truly celebrate this godless holiday and feel SICKENED about it in the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL but feel forced to by my family! So if the Lord KNOWS my heart and KNOWS I hate Christmas with a PASSION in my heart, he will excuse me from its *consequences*, right?

But sadly, ANY excuse for “sin” is NO EXCUSE, folks and I honestly had to learn that the hard way this year! I can’t STAND the awful feeling eating away at me in the pit of my stomach knowing that I failed HIM, I failed the King of Kings and Lord of Lords by passively celebrating in this “godless” holiday that people call “Christmas”!

Now tell me: What do Christmas trees have to do with Jesus? Nothing, right? And if they’re NOT “idols” in peoples’ lives, why are they SO RELUCTANT to let them go?

And people actually claim that Christmas trees AREN’T worshiped? HA! 

Check out the following 3 items

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging

Not only green when summer’s here,
But also when it’s cold and drear.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

For every year this Christmas tree,
Brings to us such joy and glee.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging!
A symbol of goodwill and love
You’ll ever be unchanging

Each shining light
Each silver bell
No one alive spreads cheer so well

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging

I cried for days and and days and days BEFORE Christmas, RIGHT AFTER the “festivities” on Christmas Eve and ON Christmas “Day” and beyond. I just can’t get over the shame! Why? Because I can FEEL Jesus’s angered tears at my “cowered betrayal” of Him and his command to me to NOT celebrate Christmas this year or any year after! I CAN HARDLY STAND TO LIVE WITH MYSELF NOW, FOLKS! I feel like the world’s most terrible person now, in Jesus’s eyes! And the feeling of guilt, shame and hypocrisy is just BEYOND OVERWHELMING!

I’ve barely eaten the last two days and have spent most my time laying in bed, crying. Jesus Christ has done SO, SO VERY MUCH for me in my life. So now for me to unwittingly and cowardly turn my back on him like that, just because I didn’t have the heart to keep arguing with my mom over the holiday? ;(

The Lord Jesus has taught me a VERY valuable Earth-shattering lesson here, folks! If it comes down to two things and two things ONLY, HIM or your family? You’d better pick HIM! No matter what! Your family members didn’t create you or the universe! Your family members don’t have the power of heaven and hell and death in their very hands! Your family members didn’t talk in a burning bush, send the plagues to Egypt, or calm the ROARING SEA! Your family members don’t have the power of space and time in their very hand!

True, they will laugh, they will mock, they will scoff and they WILL get mad/indifferent when you claim you no longer want to celebrate Christmas (TRUST ME ON THIS) but you can NOT let that get to you, folks! You MUST stand strong! You MUST stand firm! ESPECIALLY in 2016, when things are going to get much, much, MUCH worse than they EVER WERE in 2015, BELIEVE ME ON THIS, FOLKS! Do NOT make the same mistake of “compromise” in the upcoming year of 2016 that I unwittingly made this year in 2015! And IF you do, I pray the Lord Jesus Christ will have mercy upon your SOUL! Just as I pray he has mercy upon MY soul!

Alot of pastors and Christians do NOT like to talk about this subject but it MUST be brought to light! Just like a parent can lose patience with his/her child, Jesus can also LOSE HIS PATIENCE with US, if we’re not careful! And once we’re beyond the point of no return, once HIS wrath in OUR lives reaches its “breaking point”, there’s NO turning back! THAT is when he will predetermine that we are NOT FIT FOR THE MILLENNIAL/ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD [NEW JERUSALEM].

[Please remember that in the time of Noah, there was a period of SPIRITUAL PROBATION. And as soon as the “breaking point” of that “spiritual probation” CLOSED, there was NO GOING BACK! The bible says that after the door of Noah’s ark was SEALED shut, SEVEN DAYS went by BEFORE the “fountains of heaven” were opened up and it began to rain for 40 days and 40 nights!

And I’m sure that AS all the people that thought that Noah was a “silly old man” were standing there and mocking Noah and his “ark”, they had NO IDEA of the calamity that was soon to come! So it is with people who still STUBBORNLY insist on celebrating “Pagan Christian” holidays in their hearts! They think the “bible followers” are CRAZY and REFUSE to take heed!

Therefore, THEIR point of “spiritual probation” is CLOSING! Yes, CLOSING, folks! Once they get to that theoretical “spiritual point” in their lives where they are metaphorically standing outside the “Ark of God”, laughing, mocking and scoffing, it will be TOO LATE FOR THEM, AS THERE’S NO GOING BACK, AT THAT POINT IN TIME! I’m sure there were altleast a FEW people who were banging on the “Ark” at that time, begging to be let in but after God sealed it shut, it could NOT be opened by Noah and his family! And my best spiritual guess is that Noah and his family could NOT even pry the Ark’s door open for someone at that point in time, EVEN if they had wanted to!]

But the main point I want to make here (EVEN FOR MYSELF, EVEN) is that Christmas is NOT okay to “compromise” on. Easter is NOT okay to “compromise” on. NO “Paganized Christian” holiday is okay to compromise on, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS! That is what the Lord Jesus Christ has taught me in HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER!

ALL of “Christian holidays” are based on ancient Pagan “sex festivals”. Does that SHOCK YOU? It shouldn’t. Considering the world just LOVES these “holidays”.

And yet, the world (as a whole) has never even HEARD of the holidays of Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Firstfruits, etc. And why is that, do you think? Answer: Because those are the ONLY holidays that truly DO celebrate Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! These holidays don’t share Jesus with ANY other object or “entity” (such as easter bunny, santa claus, costumes, noise makers, etc.) And the bible says that “the world” (as a whole) does NOT want ANYTHING to do with the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ and OH HOW TRUE THAT IS IN TODAY’S HEATHEN, FALLEN, GODLESS WORLD!!!!!!!!! A world where sin ABOUNDS!

But in fact, Jesus Christ DID describe his “flock” as a L I T T L E FLOCK. Translation? VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it through the gates of the heavenly city of New Jerusalem someday. VERY FEW. Why? Lets turn to the bible for the answer:

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

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

Translation? Many, many, MANY billions of people will go to “the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament] and only a VERY FEW SELECT FEW will to to “God’s Paradise” of the new heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” [described in Revelation 21-22]. 

Ever since the death of Jesus Christ and the original apostles, it came to be in the world (as a whole) that the TRUE “Jewish gospel” of Jesus Christ was “not popular”. Why? Because it demanded people to DENY themselves “Earthly pleasures” and to live “humble lives”.

Therefore, this “pick-up-your-cross-and-follow-me-gospel” was soon replaced by a Babylonian/Pagan “pleasures GALORE” gospel that the world (as a whole) EMBRACED! Why? Because “the world” (as a whole) HATES the biblical Jesus Christ and doesn’t want anything to do with him!

Do you REALLY think that if December 25th was Jesus’s TRUE birthday that the Earth would be celebrating it? I THINK NOT! For if December 25th was the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ’s birthday, the world (as a whole) would want NOTHING to do with that date, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS!

Also: Imagine if people replaced your REAL birthday with Hitler’s birthday! And instead of giving creed and honor to YOU, people instead sung songs of praise to HITLER! And proudly displayed Nazi regalia all throughout their home! How would YOU feel? [Those that give credence to Hitler probably wouldn’t care too much but that’s besides the point!]

The point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ HATES IT when somebody takes a PAGAN HOLIDAY, puts HIS holy name on it, and then ADVOCATES bowing down to IDOLS (adorned Christmas trees) and SINGING SONGS TO IDOLS:

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake………..”

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree……..”

EVEN the “Christmas songs” ABOUT Jesus Christ are ALL BLASPHEMOUS, in and of THEMSELVES……Need more proof? Visit the following website that breaks down the lyrics bit by bit and little by little: http://www.layittoheart.com/christmas.html

The very LAST point I want to make is THIS: The “Jesus Christ” that’s worshiped on December 25th every year is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: IS NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! But instead is a FALSE, PAGAN, SATANIC type of JESUS CHRIST that the Roman Catholic Church worships as Helios, the SUN GOD and that apparently advocates lying to little children about Santa Claus! Now, tell me, would the real, true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ ever advocate lying to children? Didn’t think so! 

And Hint: Those aren’t really “halos” around Catholic figures’ heads, as they’re actually supposed to represent SUNS! Hence, Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the SUN, NOT **THE SON***! WAKE UP, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea, with the help of Catholic bishops, Constantine took the Jewish religion, blended it with Pagan elements, and then called it “Christianity”.

In other words, Constantine turned the religion of God’s TRUE people INTO A LIE! Not to mention the Catholic Church INVENTED “Christ-Mass/Christmas” and “Ishtar/Easter” etc., as a way to CIRCUMVENT the TRUE holidays of Christ (Passover, Pentecost, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc.)

Notice how there’s only FIVE holidays in the “Christian calendar”, compared with the Lord Jesus’s SEVEN biblical holidays in the BIBLE’S CALENDAR?  

  • Christmas (based off of the Pagan Festival Saturnalia, which encouraged drunken orgies and lawlessness)

  • Easter (based off of the Pagan Festival of Ishtar, goddess of sex/fertility, whose symbols were “painted eggs” and “the rabbit”)

  • Valentine’s Day (based off the Pagan “Lustfest” called Lupercalia)

  • New Year’s (Like Christmas, based off the Pagan Festival(s) Saturnalia and Yule, which encouraged drunken orgies, etc.)

  • Halloween (based off of Samhain, which is/was more or less considered *institutionalized orgies and/or necrophilia*)

VS……….

7 REQUIRED Festivals of the Lord:

  • Passover

  • Feast Of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast Of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast Of Trumpets

  • Day Of Atonement

  • Feast Of Tabernacles

2 Minor (Optional?) Festivals:

  • Purim

  • Hannukah

Everything from the star on top of the tree (the “pentagram”) to Santa Claus to reindeer……there’s absolutely NOTHING biblical about December 25th! Not a SINGLE THING! You and I both have been warned! And may NONE of us (even ME, of all people) complacently, willingly or stubbornly insist on participating in this holiday EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN, so long as we all shall live! Amen. 

But in closing, there’s ONE last very point I wanted to make: that of Revelation. In the book of Revelation, Revelation chapter 11 is talking about the two prophets of God whom will prophecy (if literal days) 1,260 days. But at the end of those days, the Beast who ascends out of the pit will overcome them and kill them. And all the godless people on the Earth will be SO HAPPY when these two prophets are killed, that they will let their bodies lay in the street of what is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt.

Revelation 11:10 states: “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth”. Does this NOT sound like a “Christmases of ALL Christmases” to YOU?

Not to mention the movie trailer for the movie called “The Big Short” (which hints at a future failing of the U.S. economy – pretty scary stuff, folks) and the upcoming TV series called “Lucifer”, which tries to shed Satan in a GOOD LIGHT! Folks, 2016 is going to get UGLY! VERY, VERY, **VERY** SPIRITUALLY UGLY! In fact, just LOOK at these two previews! 😦 [Lucifer is NOT God’s Son, by the way! JESUS IS!] 

And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, folks!!!!! That’s why it’s SO important for you to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ! Repent of any sins that need repenting of! Get your lives and your finances in order! Get rid of your complacency and your fears (and believe me, that goes just as much for ME as anyone!) Read your King James Bible (even on the days and times when you don’t feel like it). Meditate on it, fixate on it, memorize, apply it to your life!

I say this not to scare you but to warn you. 2016 is going to be B A D……..Very, very B A D!!!!!!!!! SO BE PREPARED!!!!!!!!! Be on your best spiritual guard! Satan will send his hoards and hoards of demonic operatives (both demonic and human) to try to destroy any vestige of the Lord’s people that he can find! But don’t let him win, folks! Stay strong! Stay VIGILANT for the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and his Word! Do NOT bow down to pressure from the ungodly LEFT! And no matter HOW hard things get or how hard your life is, DON’T GIVE UP, FOLKS! Have a faith that’s SO STRONG that you’d be willing to die for it, if needed! And if you DON’T have that type of faith in Jesus, then PRAY to have that type of faith in Jesus!

Don’t care if people laugh and mock at you! Because very soon, everything on this Earth will pass away and a new heaven and a new Earth will be constructed by God the heavenly father! And soon, we will ALL be before the mighty Judgement Seat of Christ! And we will be judged for every idle word! Every thought, deed and action ever done in this Earthly life! And Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE will determine who’s names get recorded in his book of Life and who’s names are NOT recorded in the book of Life (his personal record book of faithful followers). Also: Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast when it comes time to buy and sell. It’s better to starve for the Lord Jesus Christ than to live FOR the Devil, so remember that, folks! May the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: BIBLICAL PROOF THAT JEWS NEED JESUS:

There seems to be this popular false teaching floating around today which states, “The Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus, since their Torah-observance and/or their already being born as Jewish ALREADY makes them righteous before God!” That would imply that a person being ethnically and/or spiritually Jewish is “enough”, in God’s eyes.

But let us go back in the bible during the times of the Old Testament. Abraham had TWO sons (Ishmael — by his bondwoman Hagar and Isaac — by his wife Sarah). Many Jews of today claim they are saved by being the “physical descendants of Abraham”, ALONE! However, God’s everlasting covenant in the Old Testament was with ISAAC, not Ishmael! So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask?

It means that God’s everlasting covenant is a SPIRITUAL COVENANT, not so much a physical one! And the spiritual covenant is brought about by FAITH! Faith in what, you might ask? Faith in the one and only true Messiah! Who is the Messiah? Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty! The bible is VERY CLEAR that Salvation only comes by grace through FAITH + obedience.

 

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

“So what does THAT mean, then?”, some may ask. It means that IN the true spiritual kingdom of God/Jesus and also IN the future Millennial Kingdom, there are absolutely NO distinctions between male and female, rich and poor, Jew nor Greek, for ALL obedient servants of Jesus Christ ARE HIS SPIRITUAL CHILDREN and are ALL considered CHILDREN OF GOD!

In fact, John 14:6 expressidly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

Translation? Jesus is saying there in that passage that he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, the ONLY way for forgiveness of sins, the ONLY way to receive eternal life, and the ONLY way to ESCAPE God’s ETERNAL WRATH! In other words, outside of HIM and him alone, there IS no “Salvation!”

In a previous post, I stated that the Hebrews/Jews were God’s chosen people and that to say otherwise was “demonic”. But I should’ve EXPANDED on what I meant by that. The Hebrews were God’s chosen people back in ancient biblical times, (pre-flesh appearing Jesus), YES! BUT…..in a world that became flesh-appearing Jesus, followed later by post-human flesh-appearing Jesus, (soon to be replaced once again by the PHYSICAL/FLESH-APPEARING AND FULLY SPIRITUALLY GLORIFIED JESUS), the “chosen people” of God will then became ALL souls that had/have faith AND obedience in Jesus Christ Almighty (rather Hebrew or Gentile!) as the following passage illustrates:

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

While it’s true to say that the Hebrews were the “firstborn” or original “first-fruits” of God, it’s NEVER ok to say that “today’s Jews” don’t need Jesus Christ to be “Saved”! For ALL souls (INCLUDING “Jewish ones”) NEED Jesus Christ to be saved! ALL!

For like I stated, outside of Jesus Christ, there IS no Salvation! The VEIL to the Jewish temple was BROKEN by Jesus during his crucifixion! Meaning, the OLD COVENANT (the “Jewish Temple”) no longer applied, ONLY the NEW COVENANT (Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection & consequent ascension back up to heaven) applied/applies! For ONLY the blood of Jesus on the cross gave a way for all present-at-the-time-of-Jesus and future mankind a way to be “eternally redeemed in God’s site!”

Many Christians out there today REFUSE to tell Jews about Jesus, thinking that the Jews are already saved by “the Torah”. But those Christians are DECEIVED and sadly DELUDING THEMSELVES! For remember that Satan’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY! The Hebrews (back in ancient biblical times) were the Lord’s chosen people! Satan’s been trying to DESTROY THEM and/or their way of life ever since (Haman, Pharaoh, Nero, Nimrod, Hitler, antisemitism in & of itself (*especially* among many of today’s “Christians”), Palestinian Authority, etc.)

In fact, during the time of Constantine, “anti-Jewish sentiment” was at an all time high. Pro-Jesus Jews wanted nothing to do with the “Orthodox Jews” since they considered them responsible for the “execution/crucifixion” of Jesus. Romans (for the most part) ALSO wanted nothing to do with the Orthodox Jews OR “Pro-Jesus Jews” since they considered their way of life to be “foreign” and “too restrictive”.

And so just like many “politicians” do today, Constantine knew he must fully maintain these “sentiments” by law in order to maintain complete and utter control over the entire Roman Empire populace. So what better way for him to do that, than to create a religion that “did away with biblical precepts” and that had “equal rights for ALL”? Sound familiar?

When Constantine (with the help of “Catholic bishops”) CHANGED the Sabbath day from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday Sabbath to Sun-day (venerable worship day of the Sun), he not only turned “Christianity” into a LIE but he ALSO proved which god he worshiped (and it was NOT the God of the bible!!!!!!!)

Sadly, one of the most devastating IMPACTS this had was on the “Jewish people” THEMSELVES (as a whole)! Instead of being spiritually seen “as one” with the “believing” Gentiles (meaning, those Gentiles that believed in AND obeyed Yeshua/Jesus Christ) like they SHOULD’VE BEEN, they were then “set apart” for what would then become their own spiritual demise! Because at THAT point in time, you then had many “Orthodox Jews” who thought that NO Jews need Jesus in order to be saved” and unfortunately, this viewpoint spread like CANCER to the non-Jewish world as well!

BEFORE Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on the Earth, ONLY the Hebrews were “God’s chosen people”. But DURING and AFTER the time that Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on Earth, ANY person (rather Hebrew or not) received the right to become “a child of God”/PART of “God’s chosen people”. Because whoever DENIES Yeshua is THE Messiah (rather Jewish or not) is essentially calling God (the same one that saved Daniel in the Lions Den, brought the Hebrews out of Egypt, appeared to Moses in a burning bush and parted the Red Sea, etc.) a LIAR! Please remember that Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and evermore! He hails from EVERLASTING! 

Jerusalem (both Earthly Jerusalem AND Heavenly Jerusalem) is God’s foothold. The bible says so. In fact, even after all this time, the physical city of Jerusalem (miraculously) still stands! However, many “Arabs” (modern-day physical and/or spiritual descendants of Ishmael) now live in Jerusalem, too! To ME, that’s very prophetic…..

In my opinion, that means that God is reigning “judgement” upon “Earthly Jerusalem” for the following two reasons: A) for becoming so “worldly” and “politically correct” and B) for the Jews having turned their back on their one and only true Messiah (which is Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty)…..

The fact that “Earthly Jerusalem” now has many Israel-hating “foreigners” living among them (and has had so for SEVERAL years now) *and* that it’s also now a “political hotbed” for the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD (in addition to all the “pro-sodomite/LGBT celebrations” in Tel Aviv/etc……….SPEAKS VOLUMES! (That’s bible prophecy right there in the making, folks!) 

Also, there’s NO more need for an “Earthly Temple” anymore, as THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS! Jesus Christ himself even says in John 5:46 “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.”  

And the bible also says Jesus/Almighty God will create a NEW heavens and a NEW EARTH! In fact, the city that Almighty God will build and bring down from heaven will be called “NEW JERUSALEM”. Why is that, do you think? Because clearly, if God’s foothold on the city of Jerusalem were only physical, there would be no need for him to build a “NEW JERUSALEM”, now, would there? That’s how we know that Almighty God’s hold on Earthly Jerusalem is both physical AND spiritual……

However, ironically enough, even WITH the foreign enemy living among them, Israel is STILL prosperous! That to ME would suggest that Jesus still loves the Jews and desperately wants them to come back to Him before it’s too late and their fate is sealed for all eternity! 

Our commission in these last days is to NOT ONLY bring the gospel to non-believers and those of other religions (in general) but to SPECIFICALLY bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Jews themselves! Because remember that there is NO SALVATION outside of Jesus Christ! NONE! Over 330+ Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament, biblically PROVING that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

Also: think about all the Jews out there today that do horrible, abominable things, like own porno companies or abortion clinics or movie studios, etc for instance! Or Jews that were born Jews but deny the faith of Jesus? Are they all now “Saved” JUST BECAUSE they were “born Jewish”? HA! Or perhaps you have a Jew that DOES follow the Torah to the letter (and while I personally commend that Jew/those Jews for doing so – especially in today’s world where things have become so evil), that STILL won’t “Save Them” from God’s Eternal Wrath since THE VEIL OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN at the crucifixion of Jesus!

“He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me” – Luke 10:16 [Those that hate Yeshua/Jesus HATE God Almighty since God Almighty is the one that SENT Yeshua/Jesus to Earth to be born of a virgin birth!

“Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust” – John 5:45 [Moses will directly or co-directly accuse Jews who rejected Jesus to Almighty God, since THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE PRECISE MOMENT OF JESUS’S DEATH ON THE CROSS!

“I and my Father are one” – John 10:30 [Yeshua/Jesus IS the Messiah!!!!!! He is God Almighty in the flesh! He and the Heavenly Father/God Almighty ARE ONE!

Not to mention that most of the Jewish genealogical records were carried away and BURNED! Why? Because it was God’s sign to mankind that the genealogical records NO LONGER APPLIED, since THE MESSIAH (Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty) HAD ALREADY ARRIVED ON EARTH! 

[However, Yeshua/Jesus’s genealogy has been preserved to a T! Why is that, do you think? Answer: His genealogy is the ONLY spiritual/physical genealogy that MATTERS!]   

So, people: IF you see, know or hear of a Jewish person, PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST & SALVATION TO THEM! The bible says that during the End Times, 144,000 Jews will be sealed in the name of God! Translation? DURING these here End Times, many Jews will come to know and realize that Jesus Christ WAS their Messiah and is the ONLY way to Salvation! In fact, many Jews today are ALREADY starting to wake up to this fact! They are known today as “Messianic Jews”.

And for those “Christians” who defied Constantine by KEEPING the biblically-mandated “Jewish precepts” of the gospel such as the BIBLICAL FEASTS and the biblically-mandated 7th day Sabbath? They became known as “Messianic Jews” or “the Lord’s people”. So no, not ALL Jews refused to recognize Jesus as their Messiah. Some were wise enough back then to realize Jesus was the Messiah. But still. Many more Jews will wisen up TODAY and realize that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

But folks, be forewarned: amidst world chaous, a “one-world-government-leader” will SOON emerge. He will appear to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He might even possibly call himself “Jesus” or “Messiah”. But he will NOT be the “Jesus Christ of the bible”. He will be an IMPOSTER! He is the BIBLICAL ANTICHRIST! He will pretend to come in the name of peace and FOOL MANY! And he will eventually require ALL flesh (both young and old, rich and poor, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead in order to be able to buy or sell. But Almighty God warns that WHOEVER takes this “mark” will end up in the eternal LAKE OF FIRE:

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” – Revelation 14:11

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

Sadly, many “Jews” (and non-Jews, alike) will see the soon-coming one-world-government-leader (the Antichrist) AS their “Messiah” and will GLADLY take his “mark” to buy and sell, before later realizing that NOT ONLY is he not THE BIBLICAL MESSIAH but is in fact, no “Messiah” at all but came from the PITS OF HELL! However, by then, it’ll be too late for them, for ONCE they take “the mark”, their fate is SEALED for ALL ETERNITY!

In fact, Messiah Jesus warned us in Matthew 7: 13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. 

Translation? VERY FEW will make it into the gates of “heavenly Jerusalem”, someday. VERY. FEW. Yet, MANY billions of people will end up in the LAKE OF FIRE, someday. Why? Because Almighty God sent them there? Answer: No. Because these people will have ended up sending THEMSELVES there…..by REJECTING Jesus Christ as the one and only true Messiah, by ALLOWING themselves to be deceived by the one world government leader, and by ALLOWING themselves to get “THE MARK” (in order to buy or sell), the mark that Almighty God warned them in the bible NOT to get!

Therefore, in conclusion, ALL souls (INCLUDING Jewish ones) need Jesus Christ in order to be “Saved”! For apart from Jesus Christ, there IS no Eternal Salvation!

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12

And for those of you Jewish people or skeptics that have any doubt about Jesus being the one and ONLY true Messiah, PLEASE PLEASE check out my page entitled “Long List of 333+ Messianic Prophecies from Old Testament FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in New Testament”. 

Thanks and have a wonderful evening! 😉 

“I pray that all Jewish AND non-Jewish souls that read this become saved in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ. May He speak to you in your dreams, may He give you visions of Him and HIS words in the bible, may He take the spiritual blinders off your eyes and SET YOU FREE from the demonic LIES of this world and may He also grant your soul a refreshening that only He himself can provide! May He bless & keep you for all eternity! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Wide Gate Vs. The Narrow Gate: [Matthew 7:13-14]

Turn to just about ANY social media today (specifically Youtube, for example) and it seems that everybody wants to do what everyone ELSE is doing! [Just look at how many Shae Nae Nae videos there are on Youtube for instance, my goodness!]

And WHY is that, do you think?

What would drive a person to SO want to be like someone else, that they’re driven to make an entire VIDEO/etc. about it?

The answer lies within our own human need for “acceptance”. In retrospect, human beings tend to care more about fellow mankind/other people think of them, rather than what God Almighty/Jesus Christ thinks of them!

Someone once said that “where your money is, your heart is also”. And those words ring SO true, today! Just look at how many people spend most of their “take-away money” at shopping malls, movie theaters, casinos, restaurants, bars/liquor stores, on online videogames or “gossip magazines”, etc.? The number is quite staggering. (Especially among “Christians”!)

Mall interior in Prague, Czech Republic. MOVIE THEATRE 1 bruce jenner, laverne cox, mag cover

Now, am I personally condemning people spending their money at shopping malls and movie theaters,etc.? No. The point I’m trying to make is that when that’s ALL people want to do these days, instead of spending time in the Written Word of God (The Bible), then it becomes painfully obvious that they’re placing “entertainment”, “food” and “shopping” over God Almighty!

And what’s really sad in today’s world is that even many “Christians” themselves have now become PART of the “Mass Deception” that’s taking place in these last days! Many people who CALL themselves “Christian” now support things such as abortion, gay marriage, etc., without even blinking or thinking twice about it! And they will honestly look at you funny (the biblical-roots Christian, that is) for even do so much as BELIEVING the bible (King James Version) AND adhering to what it says! They will call you “old school”, “outdated”, a “hater”, a “bigot”, etc.!

Just take for example how many people would look at someone strange if they hadn’t stepped foot inside a shopping mall or movie theater in over a decade? Just like how many people today would look at someone as if they were the Devil if they didn’t agree with “same-sex marriage”, the celebration of “Pagan Christmas”, etc?

And among the college crowd, how many people would look at someone as if they were a “loser” of sorts if they didn’t participate in the following?

BROAD PATH49, COLLEGE PARTY1 premarital sex88college party  POT SMOKING WARCRAFT1

What’s even more sad is that America (as a whole) has now become an “anything goes” type of society (especially after the Supreme Court gay marriage ruling!) But like I said, the “gay rights movement”, at its very core, is actually nothing more than demanding the right to “sin freely”, without being told by anyone that what they’re doing is “sinful”.

And now, as a result of the gay marriage ruling, “other” groups of people are “demanding their rights to sin” as well (polygamists, incestors, pedos, you name it!) In fact, the media is very slowly desensitizing people to pedophilia (the TV show Toddlers & Tiaras was just the beginning!)

Look at the movie called “Bad Grandpa” for example, where a movie trailer on Youtube shows a little boy dressed up like a young female stripper, doing a sort’ve lap dance on stage, while the “grandpa” throws money at him! DIGUSTING! Plus I won’t even mention the U.S. govt’s endorsement of “Bacha Bazi” in Afghanistan or of all the current “dance competitions” in the U.S. that has young girls dressed – and dancing like – hookers! What has our nation come to, folks? ;( God’s wrath is DEFINITELY upon this nation!

Not to mention the NEW AGE/ENLIGHTENMENT MOVEMENT. The “all paths lead to one” thing……People think they can “find God” by chakra, meditation, incense, etc. In other words, people believe they can worship Buddha AND Jesus and “still be fine” on the Day of Judgement. OR they think they can worship other gods BESIDES Jesus (Buddha, Krishna, Joseph Smith, Allah, etc.) and still be considered “righteous” in God’s eyes on the Day of Judgement.

And on top of the New Age movement already in place, there’s also something called the ECUMENICAL and EMERGENT MOVEMENTS……The ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT is where they’re trying to merge all “Christian churches” with the Roman Catholic Church. The EMERGENT MOVEMENT is where they’re trying to incorporate “New Age philosophies and practices” INTO the “Christian Church” (as a whole).   

But the point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ called the path to Everlasting Life a NARROW WALK! He also said that FEW would find it! F E W….He also said that MANY who call themselves “Christians” will be ETERNALLY TURNED AWAY/PUNISHED by him on the Day of Judgement since they worshiped him “in vain” while living on Earth.

Meaning, they called themselves “Christian” but didn’t truly LIVE as one……They still worshiped on the false, PAGAN Sabbath (Sun-day), they mindlessly worshiped in the PAGAN HOLIDAYS (Easter, Christmas, etc.), they IGNORED his true, BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and true, BIBLICAL Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday twilight – please remember that a Jewish “day” begins at sundown the night before!)…………

They went to “church” every week but they blatantly ignored the homeless guy on the street, as they drove to/from the grocery store. They “went through the motions of prayer and bible study”, but only first after watching “the big football game” or their favorite movie/tv show, or after playing their favorite videogame or going to see a movie at the theater…..[And believe me, this goes JUST AS MUCH for ME, as it does for others!]

They bought “generous gifts” for others but then EXPECTED elaborate gifts in return. They called out in the name of Yeshua/Jesus but then turned around and held a grudge against someone (a friend, a family member, a coworker). They called themselves “Christian” but supported UNGODLY THINGS such as premarital sex, abortion, same-sex marriage/relationships, pornography, “gay rights”, etc. They talked about HOW Jesus/Yeshua would do things (especially at the End of Days) but they didn’t really have the TRUE FAITH that he would. Etc. etc……..you get the picture………..

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

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

Truth is, many “Christians” will find themselves in the lake of fire someday. And right before they’re thrown in, they’ll be asking Jesus Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?”, but the Lord Jesus will NOT hear them! Instead, he will say to them,I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“. OUCH!

Remember that James 4:4 states: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”.

Translation? Being “in the world” (that means, being up to speed on fashion, trends, latest movies/music/videogames/celeb news) is “enmity with God”. Why? Because it technically means a person cares more about the latest fashion trends/music/movies/technological gadgets/etc. than they do Almighty God/Yeshua/Jesus Christ. So that, in effect, makes them a technical “enemy” of God/his written word in the bible.

On the contrary, to be “friends” with God/Yeshua IS to effectively be considered an “enemy” of the world. Think about how a person’s naturally considered a “loser” if they DON’T CARE about the latest fashion trends/music/movies/videogames/technological gadgets/etc. Believe me, there’s a whole spiritual reasoning behind it! Because Jesus said, “the world loves its own”:

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also” [John 15:18-20] 

So you have two choices and two choices, ONLY: LIVE for Jesus Christ by DENYING the world and the things OF this world (as a whole)……OR……live AS the world and with the things OF this world, place Jesus Christ and his written word in the bible on the back burner, live as though you don’t have a care in the world and suffer for an eternity in the flames later! The choice is up to you! But don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

We MUST Have A “Spiritual Relationship” with Jesus Christ!!!!!

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

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” [Matthew 7:24-29]

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereatbecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it[Matthew 7:13-14]

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” [Matthew 25:21]

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

So what can we gather from this? Well, we know that Matthew chapter 7, verses 13-14 means that ALOT of people will go to eternal destruction in the flames of fire! We also know that VERY FEW people will make it to eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday in his new heavenly city entitled “New Jerusalem”. It will be built by God the Heavenly Father himself and his angels and descend down out of heaven onto the new Earth.

Lets go back and read Matthew 7:13-14 once more:“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it”.

The key words here are “narrow is the way”. That means that ALL those who follow the path of LIFE (eternal truth in Jesus Christ Almighty) will be FEW in number. Why? Because they will be seen as “narrow-minded” by many others who follow the “broad path” [that is to mean, the way of destruction]. The road to eternal destruction will have MANY people on it because it is the EASY path. For it is far more easier for every human to sin than not sin, correct?

[It takes ALOT of strength, courage and discipline to “go against the mold” and stand up for own’s Judeo-Christian beliefs in today’s “fallen world”]. And “hating Jesus Christ” today, in our current global world and “culture”, is seen as “cool/hip/popular/EVERYBODY’S-DOING-IT-SO-WHY-SHOULDN’T-WE?” type of thing.

And all the people out there who TRY to adhere to biblical principles (“homosexuality/homosexual marriage is WRONG”) are seen as “hateful” and “narrow-minded”. [Note: While I agree that homosexual marriage and homosexual behavior is 100% WRONG in the eyes of Jesus Christ and the bible, I do NOT fully agree with the *hateful* way that that particular message was/is preached by the Westboro Baptist Church: and I just had to get that out there].

However, I DO want to make the point that Satan and his demons are 100% behind homosexuality. Luciean Greaves calls gay marriage a sacrament within the Church of Satan. Plus also look at the following photos and then try to tell me that Satan’s not somehow personally involved with the homosexual behaviors/agenda of LGBT people!

   SAME SEX COUPLES MAKE OUT ON GRAVE2  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASPHEMOUS  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASHPHEME    

Also, un-natural perversion/sodomy is NOT LOVE, it’s PURE LUST! Don’t believe me? Examine the following photos:

GAY PRIDE  GAY PRIDE5   butch lesbiansGAY PRIDE10 GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE11   LESBIAN LUST

Gay marriage and lust is like the “cancer” that’s taking over America right now (especially in the churches) and it’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! But one thing’s for sure. The Lord God Heavenly Father created marriage to be between ONE man and ONE woman…….and children were supposed to be a NATURAL BLESSING to a good, NATURAL marriage, created by and ordained by God. There is absolutely NOTHING ordained by God in today’s current “lust/sodomy” movement. Lets get real, here!

Anyways, moving on. Many of the Pagan churches out there today that call themselves “Christian” don’t teach you about the TRUE aspects of Jesus Christ Almighty! In fact, they only teach to you a VERY watered-down, even Pagan version of Him! Which is so, so heartbreaking! IF ONLY many Christians today knew the TRUE HISTORY of the “church” and of the Pagan practices running rampant in it, today! Today’s Christianity “model” is about AS FAR FROM THE BIBLE AS IT CAN GET! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!! Do your research people, then you’ll know what I mean!!!!!!!

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY   PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

But anyways, many churches today preach a “sermon” about this or that, and about how we need to have “faith”, etc. And while it’s true that we need to have faith due to Hebrews 11:6 saying “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”, it’s also true that we need to REPENT of our sins and have a TRUE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ!

In other words, we can’t just READ the bible, we must APPLY the bible to our very lives! For example, the bible says we are to forgive someone who asks for forgiveness 70 times 7! Are you forgiving the people around you who’ve hurt you? Just like the bible ALSO says when you loan something to someone, don’t expect to get it back. Give it to the one in need FREELY. And on the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:40: “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also“.

We must also spend time with Jesus Christ every single day in prayer! This is HUGE! Because lets face it, ANY person can “go to church every week” or “quote scripture”, but that doesn’t mean they’re right with God/Jesus Christ Almighty. It only means they’re “religious”. And the truth is, Jesus Christ HATES “religion” since RELIGION, in and of itself, is based on mankind’s TRADITIONS, while the actual written bible itself, is based on God’s laws and God’s heavenly decrees and history.

Not only did he create you in your mother’s womb before you were born but he loves you! And he wants to get to know you! Each and every single one of you humans walking the Earth today! But he can’t do that if you won’t let him! That’s what he means when he says in Matthew 7:23 “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“.

In the above passage, he’s talking about all the people who “went through the motions” of “religion” but that never actually took the time to get to know him personally and spiritually! These folks also never took the time to get to know his history, his TRUE history in the Old AND New Testaments, COMBINED. Because remember that the New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the OLD Testament. Jesus Christ appeared in times of the Old Testament during what’s called a “Cristophany” (pre-New Testament appearance of Jesus Christ in SPIRITUAL FORM, instead of FLESHLY FORM!) He was in the Lions Den at the time of Daniel the Prophet, just like he was also the “solider” that helped Joshua overtake Jericho!

Because during the Day of Judgement, when Jesus Christ says to those poor unfortunate souls who chased after all the wrong things/people in life: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”, MANY of those folks are going to be “CHRISTIANS!” Yes, CHRISTIANS! And even Jesus-rejecting Jews! As well as ALL other Jesus-rejecters (be they Satanists, Wiccans, Atheists, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.)

But HOW? WHY?, you may ask. And I’m going tell you why! These were the “Christian” folks who never bothered to do their research about the true origins of the Christian religion. Like sheep being led to the slaughter, they just followed along with “church traditions” without ever really bothering to research them and to see rather or not what the church taught was actually in the bible or not.

[They’re also the Satanic/Wiccan folks that thought they were “too good” for God/Jesus Christ or those who followed a false religion (Catholics, Mormons, Hindus, Muslims, etc.) or those Atheists that proudly and openly rejected God/Jesus Christ to try to appear “cool” and “hip” to others!] 

The VERY first clue comes near the beginning of Genesis:

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” [Genesis 2:2-3]

And the Lord God CREATED the Sabbath and his 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays to serve as a “sign” between he and ALL his people for ALL generations! (Even NOW!)

“Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them” [Ezekial 20:12]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you” [Exodus 31:13]

So WHY then does your “Christian church” worship on the 1ST DAY of the week (Sunday) and NOT the true “7th Day” of the week? Have you EVER asked yourself that?

Well, quite frankly, HERE’S WHY:

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify

Jesus Christ is going to say to MANY, MANY people in that great and dreadful day of Judgement: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:23]

And the REASON he’s going to say that to many people is because they can “go to church every week on Sunday”, they can “quote scripture”, they can follow other false gods and religions but yet, MANY of them can’t tell you how Jesus Christ truly feels about tatoos, or dyed hair, or Disney shows that promote cleavage, etc. They can’t name off any prophets from the Old Testament (save for Noah, thanks to the blasphemous movie of the same name), or even seem to know that Jesus was “Jewish”.

They (9 times out of 10) don’t know and realize that the TRUE Sabbath is on SATURDAY (and if they do, they don’t care). Even among the Christian churches and several different bible translations out there today, someone once said to me of one of them: “I like the NEW King James Bible, it’s goes along with what “I” believe in!”. And this seems to be the spiritual attitude of many Christians out there in today’s world.

And well, I say this with love, but the bible is NOT like a “custom-made hamburger, that one can customize to their tastes”, it’s either all true or it isn’t, theoretically speaking, right folks? [And I submit to you today that it’s 100% beyond a doubt true and they – the Luciferian establishment – have YET to prove it wrong- and will NEVER be able to prove it wrong for all eternity and that’s WHY they’re so angry with the Lord’s people, TODAY!]

There’s NO need to “miss and match” with God’s written word in the bible because quite frankly, if one is going to do THAT, why even try to be a “Christian” AT ALL? What would be the point? Because if you take out ONE part from the bible, you’d have to take out ALL parts of it.

Christians: You can’t do away with the Old Testament or Old Testament Law since that would INVALIDATE the New Testament if you did so.

Jesus-rejecting Jews: (note: not ALL Jews reject Jesus but most do): You CAN’T take away the New Testament from God’s written word in the bible since that would INVALIDATE the Old Testament. The New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament and the Old and New Testaments are ONE complete story/history of God Almighty and ONE complete “Testament” of him.

Which brings me to another point: The Talmud. For those of you not in the know, the Talmud is a set of “oral tradition writings/commentary” that are supposedly from the time of Moses. However, we know from the testimony of God’s written word (God’s COMPLETE written word) that the ONLY thing that God gave to Moses was the first five books of the bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy – which ofcourse includes the 10 commandments and Sabbath ordinances/7 holy annual feasts of the Lord).

So I most kindly and humbly say to Jews and Christians ALIKE: “Don’t drink the Kool-aide! DO YOUR RESEARCH!” Don’t follow traditions of man (the Talmud). Follow instead the TRUE traditions of God Almighty (the Old and New Testaments!) There’s over 330+ Messianic Prophecies from the Old Testament 100% FULFILLED beyond a doubt in Jesus Christ in the New Testament! But the Talmud won’t tell you that. The Talmud was written by those who HATE Jesus Christ and were jealous of his divinity and power!

Just like ALL modern day “Christian bible” translations were ALSO written up by people who HATE Jesus Christ Almighty and everything he stands for! Don’t believe me? Check it out!!!!

And if you’re a Jew who’s wondering if it’s okay rather or not you become a believer in Yeshua Mashiach, please read the following:

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: to both Jews and Christians ALIKE…….Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation! And you’re not gonna find the truth of Salvation in today’s average “church” or “synagogue” (sorry to say).

Jeremiah 29:13 says: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”

The Truth About Jesus Christ & Salvation.

While some might write the fact off as “mere coincidence”, it’s still amazing that not even ONE person in the whole entire world since the time of Christ (that I’m aware of, anyways) has ever referred to Jesus as “the late Jesus Christ” and/or “the late, great Jesus Christ”. Wow….On the other hand, several atheists etc have mocked his name in the last few centuries or so.

But think about it. Why hate or mock or fear something that “doesn’t exist”? That would be the same as me going on a constant rant about the “flying sphagetti monster”. No archaeological evidence, historical evidence/eyewitness accounts, miracles, near-death experiences, actual documented demonic possession (according to psychiatrists, even), dreams/visions, fulfilled bible prophecy concerning the nation of Israel and Jesus, etc can be tied to the NON-EXISTENT “flying spaghetti monster” but yet, all those things can be tied back to Jesus Christ.

So personally, I think those people KNOW Jesus Christ exists, they just don’t want to admit it, since it would force them to acknowledge that heaven and hell and the afterlife exist and that God’s Judgment exists, which would then therefore force them to have to change their lives around, in order to receive forgiveness for their sins, etc.

Some of those self-proclaimed Atheists/Agnostics “hesitantly” admit that Jesus Christ is real, and say things like “well, a *loving* God won’t send someone to hell”. Well, again, not true…..Those poor folks haven’t read John 14:6 in which Jesus Christ said “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No-one comes to the Father except by Me”.

Or how about Matthew 7:13-14 which statesEnter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. 

Plus, lets not forget the passages in Revelation 20:12 & 20:15 in the New Testament! God gives some VERY dire warnings about all those who don’t put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ! So in short, ALL those who don’t put their faith, trust & love into Jesus Christ before they die will be cast into HELL and/or ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. For ETERNITY. And in hell and/or eternal condemnation, there are NO 2nd chances. NO. WAY. OUT. FOREVER. 

But the sad reality is that many “Christians” will end up eternally condemned, someday! (Yes. You heard me right. CHRISTIANS). “Why is that?”, you may wonder. And the number one reason is because today’s “Jesus” worshiped in the modern-day Christian churches is a NON-BIBLICAL/PAGAN ONE! In fact, I’ll even take it a step further, here. Today’s “Jesus” worshiped in the Christian churches is a COMPLETE MOCKERY of the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ in the bible!

For example:

Today’s modern “Jesus” worshiped in churches: 

  • is worshiped on SUNDAY, venerable worship day of the SUN
  • doesn’t have anything to do with the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.)
  • is celebrated with “Paganized holidays” such as Christmas & Easter
  • seems to have no true “Jewish descent”

The true, BIBLICAL Jesus:

  • was known by his disciples and followers as God in the flesh, the one and only true Messiah
  • celebrated IN and was the EMBODIMENT of the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.)
  • came from a strong line of “Jewish descent” of King David from his mother’s side
  • was and is worshiped on the true, biblical 7th-day Sabbath, SATURDAY! (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, remember that a Jewish day begins at sundown the night before!) 

And Jesus had SEVERAL things to say about people who worshiped him in vain! Including but not limited to:

“Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meMatthew 15:7-9

“Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men” – Isaiah 29:13

The truth is that only a select “few” will receive Eternal Salvation by Jesus Christ Almighty. Because like Matthew 7:13-14 states, the path to life is NARROW. 

I’ve created this Youtube video in an attempt to produce a “visual study” of just what the passage in Matthew 7:13-14 really means! (And true, I wanted to include much more, but I could only fit so much in for a 20 minute video).
