Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8). ETC.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HE IS RISEN!!! :-)

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

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

**SEVERAL Eyewitness Accounts**

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  10. ETC.

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

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

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

1). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2010/06/11/10-surefire-evidences-of-godjesus-christ/

2. http://coldcasechristianity.com/2017/is-there-any-evidence-for-jesus-outside-the-bible/

3. https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/jesus-historical-jesus/did-jesus-exist/

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

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

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

the case for christ.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

Be Careful Whom Ye Trust

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the person you’d LEAST expect to betray you, betrayed you? How is that? What were the warning signs? How could you not see ahead of time what all the warning signs were? Let us examine….

It all begins with flattery. We think when a person constantly flatters us, that that must automatically mean that they like us. (And there’s actually a difference between flattering and complementing). But what’s underneath the surface of “false flattery?” Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feetIn the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice” – [Proverbs 29: 5-6]

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hatefulThe words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good” – [Psalm 36: 1-3]

“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin” – [Proverbs 26:28]

Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant” – [Psalm 78: 36-37]

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open grave, they flatter with their tongue” [Psalm 5:8-9]

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speakThe Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?” – [Psalm 12: 2-4]

“They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah” – [Psalm 62:4]

“The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords” – [Psalm 55:21]

So in other words, the person who “flatters you” all the time should immediately be made suspect, according to the bible! Why? Because the bible says that their heart is “double speak”. Meaning, they appear to be flattering you on the outside, but on the INSIDE, their heart is full of nothing but deceit!

I’ve had such an experience before, in my life. Someone had kept on flattering me, telling me how much better I was than another whom they disliked. (This should’ve been my FIRST red flag that something was “spiritually amiss”, there!) They kept making me think that they had my best interests in mind, etc. In fact, my own “pride” made me felt somewhat reassured to think that atleast ONE other person (“the flatterer”) had my best interests in mind.

And then, when I least expected it, they had started to flatter ANOTHER person in front of me all the time, while occasionally putting ME down (So goes the saying “Thou take prideth before a fall”). However, that being said, the spiritual equation at play here is that one person keeps getting pitted against another, notice the pattern there, folks? 

Another form of “false flattery” that I’ve learned in my spiritual walk to look out for is (gasp!) “false empathy”. I’ve had more than one case in my life where a spiritual enemy had swooped in, pretended to care about me and then betrayed me when I least expected it. How did they do it? False flattery, packed with FALSE EMPATHY: “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. 

Okay folks, now lets think about that last statement there in SPIRITUAL CONTEXT “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. And what do ya get? That’s pretty much Satan’s argument to Eve in the Garden of Eden, VERBATIM….The viewpoint that God’s being such a “jerk” by making her and Adam “work so hard at righteousness” but that her and Adam deserved the *best things* – i.e. some *relaxation* from having to work so hard at *being good & righteously productive*”, and that only HE (the Devil/unrighteousness itself) could give her/them “the relaxing REST and peace of mind she/they been looking for”. Notice the striking similarity there, folks?

[[Note: It’s really the “relax” part that gives it away. One of the devil’s best-kept lies is that we should just “kick back and relax” all the time in today’s world! But the brutal reality is that the Lord Jesus Christ and his angels never take a “break” from righteousness, so why should WE? Yet, that’s how the Devil tries to get us to effectively get us to “relax” our righteousness in today’s world! “You’ve been working too hard, lately. You need to focus on YOU for awhile!”]]

In fact, Matthew 6:21 puts it THIS way: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. Translation? That simply means that the “things” and “people” they are MOST interested in determines WHERE their “heart is” in life, WHAT their “heart” is currently “focusing on“. So if you’re a Christian and your “flatterer” doesn’t have much of a heart for Jesus, then it’s highly likely that that person also doesn’t have much of a heart for YOU!]] 

And also: when it comes to fellow Christians, just because a person “appears” to have the love of Christ in them does NOT mean that they do!

Remember what 1 John 4:1 says. “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”

Also…..Matthew 7: 15-20 states:Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolvesYe shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”

In other words, a person can “say” that they’re a “Christian” or that they have your best “spiritual” interests at heart, but if their actions aren’t lining up with their words? It may be time to reconsider the situation and reassess rather or not you want that person in your (spiritual) life or not.

We must remember that we’re living in the Last Days. Matthew 24: 12-14 gives a very clear picture of just what TYPE of “Last Days Society” that we’re now currently living in, in 2018 & beyond:And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”

Please remember that Satan (and his demons) don’t come in at full speed ahead. Rather, they’re more subtle. In Genesis 3:1, part A, it records: “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made”.

Translation? Satan didn’t come out at Eve with full spiritual guns blazing. The bible says he was more subtle. He waited until she was NEAR to the forbidden tree! For what good would it have done if he had tried to come at her when she was far, far away from the forbidden tree (as in an out of site, out of mind type of thing?) Think about it, folks!

That’s what “the false flatterer” did. They waited until they were alone with me before they started to “flatter me” over someone else. (And like I said, this should’ve been my FIRST clue that something was spiritually amiss in my workplace. For “dissensions”…..trying to pit one person against another…. is the very FIRST sign of demonic, spiritual warfare that’s going on!)

And now, not surprisingly, sometime later on, they had nothing but praises for YET ANOTHER…….while trying to make “me” feel small again…..Just goes to show ya. That’s how Satan rolls. He comes in subtly, attempts to gain your trust, and once he feels as though he’s gained your trust, BAM! HE STRIKES! That’s why we must NEVER, EVER (as a born-again Christian) trust a “constant flatterer!” 

But then again, it all goes back to “pride”. We’re human beings. It’s human nature to want to feel loved and accepted by others, right? But at what price, folks? At what price? For if our wanting to feel love and accepted by CERTAIN others causes us to spiritually FALL in our walk with Christ? It’s time to let that person go (as well as the “idea” of that person altogether, go!) Because our “worth” should ONLY be wrapped up in Christ and righteousness and NO OTHER! 

Romans 3:4 states: “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

Most recently at my job, they also started what I call a “sticker campaign”. Whenever someone does a good job on something, they get a sticker. And then people “pride” themselves on the number of stickers they get and compare themselves to others by how many stickers they get, etc. And then, there’s these workplace “drawings” where a worker wins prizes, etc. See how Satan works, folks? He wants all the employees at my workplace to get all bent out of shape over “stickers” and “prizes”. It’s crazy, really. What are we all, in the 4th grade or something? “Here’s a sticker”. 

Well, I most recently decided to rebel by NOT wearing the “sticker patch”. And what happened? My boss tried to tell me I’d get my department in trouble if I didn’t wear the patch. So there was this “immense pressure” at work for ALL employees to wear their “sticker patch”. This also got me to thinking: “Should we be more concerned with the praises of Jesus/God or the praises of men?”

Once I started caring more about the praises of Jesus, INSTEAD of the praises of men, being forced to wear that “new sticker patch” by management no longer bothered me. Don’t get me wrong though, employee appreciation is a good thing. I just wish it was done in such a way where it didn’t feel like such a “competition” but that’s another post for a different day. 

I’ve also noticed as well that many times, my good, hard work there goes unnoticed by others (though I know THE LORD NOTICES….) and that all my mistakes (which actually aren’t very many) are blown way out of proportion and focused on ALL DAY LONG! Whereas, another coworker could make the same exact types of mistakes, and it’s laughed off like it’s nothing, etc. But again, I’m sure MANY people out there (both Christian AND non-Christian) have experienced similar things at the workplace.  

So what does that tell ya, folks? Satan’s attacking a good majority of humans at their jobs today; left, right and center and wants to make THEM feel small! Well, as true Christians, we should NEVER back down from a spiritual fight! So whatever Satan spews at us at our respective workplaces, I say BRING IT! For 1 John 4:4 proudly proclaims: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you

– [Matthew 5: 11-12]

So to draw this all to a close, what all have we learned today, folks? Satan is subtle. He comes in the most LEAST unexpected ways, oftentimes through “false empathy” and “false flattery”. People who flatter us all the time are NOT to be spiritually trusted, according to scripture! And furthermore, our self-worth must come from CHRIST HIMSELF and NOT from man/mankind! And lastly, REJOICE when you are persecuted in ANY type of way for your faith in Christ! For, as Matthew 5:11-12 states: “GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN” 😉 

I hope this has helped somebody today who’s gone through, will soon go through or IS going through the situation of “false flattery” and being betrayed by someone when you LEAST expected it! But trust in Jesus Christ, ALWAYS! No matter what, folks! For JESUS is the ANSWER and the SOLUTION to whatever problem you’re going through right now!

He is the author and creator of ALL life! The maker of the heavens and the universe! He is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help you OVERCOME any and all situations! WITH JESUS CHRIST YOU CAN BE VICTORIOUS, IN ANY AND ALL SITUATIONS, NO MATTER WHAT! 😉 

I love each and every single one of you and hope you have a blessed evening, in the name of the Lord! And remember: Put Jesus FIRST and all other things shall follow! Put Jesus FIRST and the enemy will NEVER, EVER be able to conquer you! PRAISE JESUS! 😉 

 

Dealing With Frustration/Fear/Discouragement

Frustration. Fear. Anger. Discouragement. It’s something we’ve ALL felt in our lives, from time to time. And looking through the pages of Holy Writ (Old AND New Testaments but ESPECIALLY the Old Testament), one might come to falsely believe that the Old Testament kings/prophets never had their fair share of anger/fear/frustration/disappointment. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! 

King David was known (at times) to be in GREAT DESPAIR (over his sins!) This is evidenced in Psalm 69:

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my GodThey that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away” (Psalm 69: 1-4)

And then there was also Jeremiah (also known as “The Weeping Prophet”):

“For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed” (Lamentations 1:16)

Behold, O Lord; for I am in distress: my bowels are troubled; mine heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: abroad the sword bereaveth, at home there is as death. They have heard that I sigh: there is none to comfort me: all mine enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that thou hast done it: thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me” (Lamentations 1:20-21)

And let us also not forget Elijah, who FLED FOR HIS LIFE!

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time

And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers” (1 Kings 19: 1-4)

Therefore, David DESPAIRED, Jeremiah WEEPED and Elijah FEARED! They were all HUMAN, just like you and me! And truth be told, NONE of the Lord’s Old/New Testament prophets and/or Old Testament kings were perfect, for even THEY made mistakes! They FEARED, they WEEPED, they felt HIGHLY DISCOURAGED at times, like I said! However, nearly ALL of them (with the exception of King Saul & a few others) repented and came back to the Lord! This is evidence of how the Lord “restored” each of them:

David: Psalm 71 and 72 seem to answer Psalms 69 and 70

Jeremiah: Jeremiah 15: 19-21 was God’s response TO Jeremiah, concerning Jeremiah’s “discouragement”

Elijah: 1 Kings 19: 9-18 is the Lord’s “response” TO Elijah’s “fear”/”discouragement”

But if that STILL don’t help you, then let me tell you of my OWN experiences with fear/anger/discouragement:

1). I’m the only Messianic Jewish-Christian in my family and they all think I’m “crazy” for believing in Jesus Christ and “the bible”, etc.

2). I’m one of the only “open believers” at my workplace (a place where many like to “mock Christ” and “mock the bible”, because they think it’s so much FUN/ENTERTAINING/EMPOWERING to do so!)

3). While all of my old High-School and college friends are now pretty much all married with kids, there’s a very good chance that marriage & kids is not in the cards for ME, as far as THE LORD’S WILL seems to go (thus, making ME feel like a sort’ve “modern-day Jeremiah”)

4). Just like Jeremiah in the OT times, it seems the more I try to preach the gospel of Christ, the more people DON’T listen to me, which is HIGHLY DISCOURAGING, to say the least!

5). People in my family, my workplace/etc. make ME feel like the “bad guy” for not believing in “gay marriage”, “abortion”, “gay rights”, etc.

6). I have a couple of “Christian” friends who find absolutely nothing wrong with abortion, gay marriage and Catholic Church “theology” and of whom seem to think I’m such an “awful person” for trying to say that women shouldn’t have abortions for any reason, and that gay marriage and the Catholic Church are NOT of God!

7). I more or less feel like I’m being forced to celebrate “Dec25th” against my will (just to keep the peace in the family), even though I know in my heart and soul what a GODLESS, DISGUSTING holiday December 25th is! My “Christian” friends think I’m the Devil for even doing so much as “suggesting” that “Dec25th” has MAJOR PAGAN ORIGINS and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRIST! But in fact, THE WORLD makes me feel like such a “you-know-what” for NOT wanting to celebrate it!

But what is the crime, there? Just because EVERYONE does something doesn’t make it “right”, biblically-speaking! If the world worshiped Baal, would THAT make it “right”, biblically speaking? Anyways, I hate myself for being complacent on this one and for not putting my foot down. Not to mention I’m also probably being a a bit “hypocritical” here as well, as in previous posts, I stated that Christians celebrating “Dec.25th”, KNOWING its true connotations were in possible danger of judgement. 

8). Related to #3 above, any time I even “try” to date someone who’s even “remotely” Christian, it NEVER WORKS OUT. EVER. And when I inquired to the Lord about it, the Lord’s response more or less seemed to be: I don’t call EVERYONE to date/get married, ya know? (Hinting that my heavenly “calling” IS to be likened unto a “modern-day Jeremiah”?)

9). A couple of sins I struggle with (hoarding and/or food addiction) are SO HARD to overcome. I go through periods of time where I can “seem” to overcome it for awhile. But then…..I oftentimes seem to subtly go right back to it (nevermind the fact that I’ve tried to pray and cry out to the Lord about it LOTS of times……maybe I just need more faith?)

10). I try to find time each and every single day to “spend time with the Lord” and/or to “read his written word”. But it seems like every single time I try to open up the bible, I get sleepy…….really, really sleepy……or I become SO afraid of accidentally getting a WRONG interpretation from the bible that I’m almost too afraid to read it, sometimes (I know how ridiculous that must sound to some!) 

11). No matter HOW HARD I try to keep my patience at ALL times and in ALL situations, there’s things in my family and ESPECIALLY at my workplace that test my patience TO THE HILT! Working with the general “public” on any given day’s gonna come with customer “complaints”, naturally. And oftentimes, it’s complaints that either I can’t do anything about (as I don’t make the rules there) OR that I consider not even “complainable”.  

For example, if I try to bag a customer’s food in a special way where the hot stuff isn’t touching the cold stuff or if I want to wrap up some small tubs of sauces in a small bag WITHIN the plastic bag so the sauce doesn’t move around in the plastic sack and spill everywhere, it seems like 8 times out of 10, the customer will either COMPLAIN or give me this STRANGE LOOK like “ugh, you’re being WAY TOO nice to me, you’re WAY over-doing it, ugh!” And it REALLY tests my patience, sometimes! Here I am, trying to provide EXEMPLARY customer service TO the customer, and yet, there they are, complaining about EVERY. SINGLE. LITTLE. THING! It’s NUTS! In fact, this is often what I have to deal with on a daily basis!

I kid you not. I’ve had days where ONE customer complained about 5 or more small little things, one right after another, boom, boom, boom! And then, they’d have the gall to complain to ME if MY face looked even just a “little” minorly frustrated at the end of their “spiel”. Or I’ll have customers that won’t complain but they’ll wait until I have everything all bagged up for them, with a long line behind them and then, they’ll ADD things to their “order”. AGGRAVATING! But I have to try to remember to have the PATIENCE OF CHRIST! That’s not always easy in my line of work, folks! In fact, I’ve even had customers complain that I’m TOO nice at times. Well, in MY opinion, being “too nice” is FAR much better than being “rude”, am I right?

What IS it about human nature, that the MORE someone gives to us, the LESS AND LESS we appreciate it? Now I sort’ve know how Jesus Christ must’ve felt on the cross. And even before and after. During the times of the ancient Israelites, The Lord did A TON of stuff for the Israelites: He brought them out of Egypt, he parted the Red Sea for them, he gave them manna to eat from heaven, he miraculously brought forth water from rocks/desert, he oftentimes helped them defeat their enemies and blessed their crops, etc. etc. But it seemed like no matter HOW MUCH he did for ancient Israel, the Israelites STILL turned on Him and were UNGRATEFUL to Him! In fact, it seemed that THE MORE He DID for ancient Israel, the more and MORE they hated Him and turned on Him! HOW SAD! 😦

Honestly, there’ve been days at work when I’ve felt like: “Ok, if the customers want to complain, LET THEM, I’m sick and tired of trying to provide them exemplary service if they’re just going to walk all over me like that!” But ya want to know what the Lord taught me on those days?Treat ALL customers the way the RUDE customers treat YOU, guess what? YOU are then NO BETTER THAN THEY ARE!” Ouch! A hard lesson learned, but learned, nonethess!

Oftentimes, WHEN we are feeling discouraged, it’s because we’re spiritually lacking in something! Do we lack faith? Obedience? Patience? What IS it that we lack, first of all? And secondly, how do we overcome whatever’s LACKING? Answer: Through the Almighty Power & Glory of our Lord, Yeshua Hama’shiach (Jesus Christ Almighty!) His ways are NOT our ways and His divine understanding is NOT our human understanding! Our human nature is to want to get even with those who discourage us! But it’s Jesus’s nature to HUMBLE US!

lt’s not all bunnies and rainbows, folks! There’s going to be times in our lives when we feel MAJORLY DISCOURAGED and feel like throwing in the towel! But we MUST remember:

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

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all” [Psalms 34: 17-19]

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

“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” [John 16:33]

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” [Psalms 55:22]

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” [Jeremiah 29:11]

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” [Matthew 11:28]

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” [Galatians 6:9]

It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him” [Lamentations 3: 22-24]

And if that STILL doesn’t encourage you or provide hope, then think of it THIS WAY: Satan and his demons are THE ONES who are making you FEEL the way you do right now! And it’s their JOB to make you feel that way! HOWEVER, Revelation 20 and Matthew 25 state that they’ve ALREADY BEEN DEFEATED! They are nothing more than DEFEATED FOES:

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41]

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10]

So just remember THIS, folks……When Satan and his demons get you down, just remind Satan of his future! (Revelation 20:10)

So……in conclusion? ANGER NOT, FEAR NOT, BE DISCOURAGED NOT! Why? Because God/Jesus Christ is IN CONTROL! And may you and I never, EVER forget that folks, for the rest of our existence! Amen! 😉

 

“Cultural Christianity” Vs. BIBLICAL Christianity

Many people of today call themselves “Christian” and celebrate in “Christian holidays”, etc. But VERY FEW “Christians” actually take a step back and wonder if what they’ve been “practicing in the church” their whole lives, as a “Christian”, is EVEN BIBLICAL! They just “assume” it is. And that is sad and unfortunate, folks!

CULTURAL CHRISTIANS (as a whole) :

  1. Go to “church” every Sunday

  2. Pay tithes to “the church

  3. Sit in pews while listening to a “pastor” preach (in general) “feel good” messages that oftentimes have nothing to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general), while maintaining own’s own individual “silence” about their own personal experiences/biblical insight with the Lord with fellow church members (during a church sermon) and the OUTSIDE WORLD 

  4. Celebrate in “Christian holidays” without a second’s thought as to WHERE those “traditions” came from/etc.

  5. See nothing wrong with LGBT issues/BEING LGBT

  6. See nothing wrong with “abortion” and see it as a “woman’s right”

  7. Believe the Old Testament and “Biblical Feasts” No Longer Apply, that they are ONLY “Jewish feasts” and also that “Christian holidays” are “truly biblical”

  8. Don’t take marriage vows seriously (as a whole) 

  9. Think it’s OK to bring “New Age” concepts into “the church” (as a whole)

  10. Think “the church” is a building/a place to GO TO and not a thing TO BE

  11. Think Genesis and the book of Revelation ARE NOT REAL

  12. Don’t see ANY major importance in studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times

BIBLICAL Christians, on the other hand, don’t DO any of the 12 things above (as a whole)………In fact, they do JUST THE OPPOSITE:

  1. Celebrate the Sabbath on the BIBLICAL 7TH DAY OF THE WEEK (Saturday), not sunday!
  2. Do NOT pay “tithes” to the institutionalized “Christian church” but instead, CHEERFULLY give to those in need (i.e. a homeless person on the street, someone at the doctor’s office that needs help with medical costs, a person in line at the register that’s short of change/money, etc.)
  3. Study up on the End Times and bible prophecy
  4. (As a whole) Do NOT really celebrate in “Christian holidays” anymore in their hearts but instead, celebrate in the BIBLICAL/JEWISH HOLIDAYS, while also trying to learn as much about the “Jewish/Biblical roots” of Christianity that they can! 
  5. Realize that LGBT behavior is a GRAVE SIN……something that the ancient biblical cities of Sodom & Gomorrah were burned down for!
  6. See Abortion as a GRAVE SIN and realizes that ALL of life is “precious” in the Lord’s site!
  7. KNOW that “Christian holidays” are of Pagan origin and that the “Jewish holidays” mentioned in the bible are the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS!
  8. Take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY!
  9. KNOW that “New age” philosophy has NO PLACE in the true, BIBLICAL church!
  10. KNOW and REALIZE that “the church” isn’t a place to go to but rather, a thing TO BE! For EACH believer themselves + the “assembly” of believers = “THE TRUE/BIBLICAL CHURCH”, according to the bible!
  11. KNOW without a doubt that ALL OF THE BIBLE IS TRUE, all the way from Genesis to Revelation!
  12. KNOW and REALIZE the **UTMOST IMPORTANCE** of studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times and knows that Jesus Christ IS the spirit of prophecy!

[Yet sadly, many “CHRISTIANS” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”. They are not true, AUTHENTIC Christians, but Christians “in name, ONLY”.

Oddly, many people today are “Cultural Christians” without even REALIZING it! In fact, I myself used to be a “Cultural Christian” that worshiped on the Sunday Sabbath, was on the fence about pre-marital sex being a sin or not if two people were engaged to be married, etc. (before the Lord opened up my eyes!)

[YES, Jesus Christ had appeared to me when I was little during a NDE, but there were still many, many things about him/his word that I HADN’T yet learned at that point in time, from ages 2-32. The only thing the NDE did was prove to me that he was real, that he came from heaven, that he had the power over life and death, that his voice had the ability to shake the Earth and the waters and that during the End Times, many would “fall away” and be eternally judged by HIM!}

In fact, Jesus says in Matthew 15: 8-9This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meBut in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men“. [OUCH! Does that NOT sound like most of today’s “Christians” in the “institutionalized Christian church”, folks?]

And honestly, I think the Lord “purposely” allowed me to BE a fellow “Cultural Christian” for awhile so that I could see just HOW “easy” it is TO fall into the TRAP that’s known as “Cultural Christianity”. It was only through YEARS and YEARS of biblical study that I was FINALLY able to break free through all the false, Satanic layers in “Modern-day Christianity” and teach OTHERS how to do so! I simply call it “peeling back the layers”.

In fact, if Jesus Christ were to come to the Earth today and see just how “the church” was being run, (in general), I’m sure he’d be just as angry (if not even more so) as he was towards the money-changers in the temple in biblical times (Matthew 21:13). In fact, what would he see, if he were to see most of today’s “Christian churches” and “Christians”? He’d likely see the following:

  1. A “pastor” droning on and on about a “feel good” message that had NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general)

  2. People “tithing” money for the “church building upgrade”, the pastor’s new car, etc.

  3. People being “solemn pew potatoes”, instead of JOYOUSLY sharing with EACH OTHER as well as nonbelievers (on a daily basis and not JUST during bible study) their knowledge/experience with the bible/the Lord/their lives as it pertains to Christ/etc.

  4. People “celebrating” in holidays that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and that actually MOCKED HIM, in hindsight (while also WORSHIPING IDOLS – and not just Catholic “saints”, folks….Tell me what the EASTER BUNNY and SANTA CLAUS have to do with Christ? ANSWER: NOTHING!!! They’re an ABSOLUTE MOCKERY OF JESUS CHRIST IN FRONT OF OUR VERY OWN EYES AND MANY HUMANS DON’T EVEN REALIZE OR SEE IT!!!!)

  5. People clinging to “Satanic lies” of “pleasure and SODOMY” (especially in the LGBT community) and ALSO people who buy into the transgender LIE of: “I think, therefore I am” when that personally can’t be FURTHER from the “biological truth!” [Truth be told, NO AMOUNT OF SURGERY IS GOING TO CHANGE A PERSON GENETICALLY……only COSMETICALLY…..plus, even IF such technology would ever come about, MESSING WITH THE IMAGE OF GOD HAS *DIRE* ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES, WHICH IS THE LAKE OF FIRE!] 

  6. Many women in the church “seeing nothing wrong with abortion” and “getting one”, as a result

  7. People writing off Jesus’s BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles,etc.) that are both a foreshadowing of him AND revealed in him, saying to themselves and others that they are just “Jewish holidays, ONLY”

  8. Married people cheating on each other right and left and/or working on their 3rd/4th marriage (swapping spouses like they do underwear)

  9. People (especially young people) incorporating New Age concepts into “the church”, while also (as a whole) NOT saving themselves for marriage before having sex/etc.

  10. People TRULY believing in their hearts that “the church” is “a BUILDING”, and not the body/assembly of believers themselves

  11. People TRULY believing in their hearts that Genesis is NOT real, that Revelation is NOT real, that bible prophecy is NOT real/no longer applies

  12. People that “yawn” at bible prophecy and don’t see its total significance

In fact, do you think Jesus Christ would be happy with even HALF the stuff going on in “the churches” today? The answer is a resounding NO!

In fact, during his mighty Day of Judgement, Jesus warns:

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not” (Matthew 25: 41-43)

But the UNREPENTANT “Cultural Christians”will be SHOCKED to hear this! They will protest with the FOLLOWING:

“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?” (Matthew 7:22)

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?” (Matthew 25:44)

And HERE is how Jesus is going to RESPOND to such people:

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it NOT to me” (Matthew 25:45)

“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matthew 7:23)

[And while there’s SOME Christians out there in the church today who truly have NO IDEA about what the true sabbath is, and that DO believe homosexuality/abortion’s a sin, and that DO try to please the Lord Jesus Christ in everything they do, these folks (today, atleast) are FEW and FAR BETWEEN! The good majority of “Christians” in “the church” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”.

They not only don’t KNOW the REAL history of the Christian church/manmade Sun-day Sabbath:

http://withoutspotorblemish.blogspot.com/2010/04/happy-ishtar-no-wait-i-mean-happy.html

But they DON’T CARE to know these things! And if they DO know the true history of the church/etc., they (once again) DON’T CARE! They are COMPLACENT and have a COMPLACENT ATTITUDE towards Christ and his gospel and it’s that VERY SAME complacent attitude that’s going to COST THEM THEIR ETERNAL SALVATION IF THEY DON’T QUICKLY REPENT AND CHANGE THEIR HEARTS! **THE DOOR TO SPIRITUAL PROBATION IS SOON CLOSING, FOLKS! TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH THE *BIBLICAL* JESUS CHRIST AND NOT THE “FALSE ONE” TAUGHT IN CHURCHES TODAY!!!!!!]

Therefore, any “Cultural Christian” REFUSING to change their heart/mind/body/spirit, AFTER LEARNING THE TRUTH, (THE TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH), in order to make themselves right with the Lord? Jesus will be ETERNALLY CASTING THOSE PEOPLE OUT……..those that CALLED themselves “Christian” while living on Earth but never really bothered to check just what being a “Christian” really meant or what the TRUE history of Christianity/the “Christian church” was!

Those that called themselves “Christian” but yet, still continued to worshiped IDOLS on a NONBIBLICAL MAN-MADE SABBATH and that also celebrated in PAGANIZED SATANIC HOLIDAYS that actually MOCK JESUS! THOSE who cared more about the world and the things OF the world than they did Jesus and his gospel! Those who never donated to those in need,etc. And BECAUSE they never really gave Jesus (the BIBLICAL JESUS) the TRUE honor, worship and credence that he DESERVED, they will NOT have their names written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!

In fact, Revelation 20:15 states the following: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

“What’s the lake of fire?”, some might ask. Answer: It’s 1,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell! And the fires of hell are 100,000 times hotter than a flame from a small lighter (according to the archangel Michael during one of my near-suicide experiences).

So do the math, folks! The lake of fire is HOTTER THAN ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE, most likely! And this fire (BECAUSE it is SO abominably HOT), was originally intended for the Devil and his angels! And the fires of hell are someday gonna MERGE INTO the lake of fire, (according to Revelation in the bible), making it EVEN HOTTER! So imagine this, folks! Put your hand under a small flame from a lighter! Feel the INTENSITY of that flame! Then imagine something that’s 100 TRILLION times hotter than that and that’s the lake of fire for ya!

So just think…..ALL the nonbelievers, ALL followers of “different religions”, ALL “Cultural Christians” will end UP in the “lake of fire”. And they will be there FOR ETERNITY!

For it states in Revelation 14:11 “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

But let me take this a step further. BECAUSE “Cultural Christians” aren’t TRULY saved in the name of Jesus and BECAUSE the Holy Spirit’s not WITH THEM, they will fall for almost any lie brought on by Satan and his New World Order!

In fact, amidst world chaos (that’s already happening in the world today), a global world leader will someday soon come on the scene (if not already so!) He will appear to be the answer to the world’s problems. He will even “promote peace”. But it’ll be a FALSE PEACE! For this global leader is nothing other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And he will someday soon require ALL of Earth’s inhabitants (rich and poor, great and small, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their foreheads, in order to be able to buy and sell. But WHOEVER takes this mark will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY! (That’s what the last part of Revelation 20:15’s talking about: “and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name”).

On the OTHER hand, if Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today and see all of the people that were desperately trying to RETURN to “Jewish/biblical-roots Christianity” and/or live their lives as “biblically accurate” as possible, I think he would be QUITE PLEASED! For he (in general) would see the following:

  1. Those who study the KJV bible at home or in “small group house churches” (the true, biblical model of “church”)

  2. Those giving money to people who actually need it (e.g. homeless people on the street, people in need of medical assistance costs, the person in front of us at the register who’s short $1 or two, etc.)

  3. Those giving their own biblical “insight” or personal experiences to other fellow Christians AND nonbelievers, instead of just listening to a pastor rattle on & on with what is oftentimes a “feel good” message that has NO true biblical importance concerning the BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST or merit concerning bible prophecy, the End Times…….OR listening to a true, BIBLICAL message about the End Times/bible prophecy, etc. 

  4. Those who mostly celebrate ONLY in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.), while “inching away from Christmas” and DENOUNCING ALL IDOLS/IDOL WORSHIP

  5. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s LGBT “agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  6. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of “Satan’s abortion agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  7. Those who not only believe but KNOW that the Old Testament and Biblical Feasts stand for NOT JUST the Old Testament AND New Testament times but for ALL TIME (even the New Millennium!)

  8. Those who take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY

  9. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s “New Age concepts” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it, as it pertains to “the church”

  10. Those who know (or have come to know) that “the church” is the body/assembly of believers themselves, and NOT “a building”

  11. Those who KNOW that Genesis and Revelation (and every word of the bible – front to back) is not only REAL but that Genesis ACTUALLY HAPPENED, that everything in the Book of Revelation WILL happen, and that everything in between from the beginning of the bible to the near end has ALREADY HAPPENED – MARK MY WORDS!)

  12. Those who know and realize the UTMOST IMPORTANCE (especially at THIS time and hour in “world history) to study up on bible prophecy and the End Times and how current world news events fit into bible prophecy [Open Your Eyes People is an end times ministry that DOES just that….they focus on world news events and how they tie in to bible prophecy, a MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE in today’s “sinful world!”]

And guess what? On Jesus’s day of judgement, instead of CASTING OUT the people who TRULY hunger and thirst for the TRUE, BIBLICAL righteousness and NOT the FALSE type of “righteousness” as THE WORLD or “church congregations” define it, he will instead say:

“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: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me” (Matthew 25: 34-36)

“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)

In other words, these true people of the Lord will receive LIFE ETERNAL and will gain entry through the gates of the NEW heavenly city called NEW JERUSALEM, that God Almighty shall bring down from heaven! (Revelation 21-22 in New Testament)

Though sadly, the number of these people will be few and far between. For Jesus says:

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)

A good illustration of this is Youtube. Just look at how many “popular videos” there are on Youtube. Then notice how many of these “popular videos” discuss Jesus’s gospel (Jesus’s TRUE GOSPEL, that is!) Very, very few, right?  

On the OTHER hand, all the Youtube videos that DO talk about Jesus? The true, BIBLICAL Jesus? Most get less than 10,000 views (even 5 years after being on there). Why is that, do you think?

Or just think about email forwards. How often do people send email forwards of funny jokes or funny news articles, yet, HESITATE when it comes to sending emails about Jesus Christ or his gospel? Have YOU ever hesitated at sending an email forward to someone concerning Christ’s gospel? I have, in the past! (Much to my shame!)

But see, that’s just how EASY it is to fall into Satan’s trap, folk! We must be VIGILANT in these last days, sharing Jesus’s LIFE-SAVING *JEWISH-ROOTS* GOSPEL of Salvation with everyone or anyone who’ll listen. NOTE: If you get someone who “pesters” you over the gospel or makes “mocking remarks”, ignore them & keep preaching to others who WILL listen to your message! Because believe it or not, all God wants you to do in the mocker’s life is “plant the spiritual seed”, that’s IT! You’re not responsible for THEIR salvation, folks! Especially if they’re a MOCKER of the gospel! So remember that! 

I personally wish I could send a “TRUE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY” flier to every single household here in America! Sadly, many pastors THEMSELVES already KNOW the truth about Constantine and how he changed the Sabbath Day etc. but REFUSE to acknowledge it to their congregations since they still want their funding from the state and since they still want those almighty dollars $$$$$ to be flowing inside their churches! 

Many pastors do sermons where they claim “Satan will never be welcome in THIS CHURCH” (looking around at their congregants for “validation”), but what they don’t know (or DO KNOW but don’t want to admit) is that “Satan” has been in the modern-day “Christian Church” ALL ALONG, ever since Constantine very first gave him a “foot-hold” by changing the Lord’s BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7th-Day Sabbath to a FALSE, SATANIC, Sun-day worshiping one! That is PRECISELY when Constantine turned “Christianity” into a LIE!

And then, here, you got all these Catholics, all these Lutherans and Protestants that think that “going to church every Sunday” will deem them saved! But oh, how HORRIFIED many of these poor folks will be when they learn THE TRUTH (that Satan was the head and master of the “modern day Christian church” ALL ALONG!)

And oh how HORRIFIED they will be when they LEARN (when they FINALLY LEARN) that the “Jesus Christ” they THOUGHT they were worshiping “at church” was nothing other than Satan himself IN DISGUISE! In fact, the “Jesus Christ” worshiped in churches today is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Why? Because as a whole, the “JESUS” taught in churches today, here in the year 2016, is a false, Paganized Jesus that seems to “accept” abominable practices such as abortion, homosexuality, divorce, etc. and can’t save a person from their sins! 

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, FOLKS! *IF* YOU END UP IN THE LAKE OF FIRE SOMEDAY, IT WON’T BE BECAUSE I DIDN’T WARN YOU! IT’LL BE BECAUSE YOU DECIDED, IN YOUR OWN FREE WILL, THAT YOU KNEW BETTER THAN GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND THAN THE LORD’S SERVANTS! SO REMEMBER THAT, FOLKS! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Read The Bible: A Beginner’s Guide

the bible made easy7 the bible made easy6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

===========

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

===========

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Signs of the Last Days mentioned in Bible

Note: Though this particular post has some pertinent information (related to bible prophecy), the following posted link here has FAR more updated information on the fulfillment of bible prophecy in today’s world (in the last days): 

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/?s=signs+of+the+last+days

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

Dead birds, mammals and fish were prophesied in the times of the Old Testament (hundreds+ years before Jesus Christ ever walked the Earth).

Ecclesiastes 9:12  “For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them

Hosea 4:3 “Therefore shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the fields, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea shall also be taken away”

SECOND UPDATE on Wednesday, January 5, 2011:

So far, there have been hundreds (if not possibly thousands) of birds dying in mid-air and then falling out of the sky [as well as several hundred or more dead fish washing up in certain areas] in the U.S. states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky & Maryland. There have also been dead fish washing up in Brazil, dead birds dying in mid-air in Sweden and dead fish washing up in New Zealand with many of them having their “eyes missing”. Over in England, several dead “crabs” have washed up on shore.

FIRST UPDATE on Wednesday, January 5, 2011:

There has been *mysterious* mass deaths of SEVERAL blackbirds and LOADS of drum fish in the Arkansas River around New Years. Nobody knows what caused the deaths. And it’s not just here in the U.S. It has occurred on OTHER continents as well. This is NOT coincidence and is only a sure “sign” of more things to come……much bigger, greater (and possibly even more mysterious).

Another interesting thing that’s happened most recently is the “biblical flooding” that’s happened in Australia (an area flooded about the size of France & Germany combined, which is what I’m told is the approximate equivalent of both U.S. states of Texas and New Mexico combined). But again, it’s not really coincidence, folks! Natural disasters in and of themselves have increased by 300% or more in the last several years. But don’t just take MY word for it: look up all the data charts for yourselves!
