THE *CANCER* OF LUKEWARM/LIBERAL CHRISTIANITY: MASSIVE & GROWING…..

I’ve noticed here in the year 2018 that there seems to be a great divide in “the church” today about what should or should NOT be acceptable in “the church” today. Not to mention that there also seems to be a great divide concerning exactly what IS “the church” to begin with. Therefore, let us turn to the bible to find the answer!

The Greek word for church is called “ecclesia”. It means a called out company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible though, it refers to people, not a building! The following are biblical examples of the “ecclesia” talked about in the New Testament. And there are THREE different types. There’s local assemblies, an individual believer, and the grouping of universal believers in Christ. Down below are all the biblical examples of each:

LOCAL ASSEMBLY:

  • Acts 7:37
  • 1 Corinthians 1:2
  • 2 Corinthians 1:1

INDIVIDUAL BELIEVER:

  • 1 Corinthians 15:9
  • Galatians 1:13

UNIVERSAL BELIEVERS:

  • Ephesians 5: 23-27
  • Ephesians 5:30
  • Matthew 16:18 [“And upon this rock I will build my church” simply means upon the foundation of Peter’s FAITH!]

So now that we’re squared away as far as what “the church” IS….biblically speaking, I’d now like to move on to my next point. Today’s culture of Lukewarm/Liberal Christianity. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? Let me give some examples.

  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in gay rights”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s not a sin to be actively gay”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in abortion”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe that the incorporation of the New Age INTO the church is a “good thing”
  • “I’m a Christian but I see nothing wrong with transgenderism”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think it’s OK to party and/or get drunk every weekend”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think everyone goes to heaven when they die”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s OK to do X, Y, Z” (things that are “condemned” in the bible)
  • ETC.

Now…….what is the common word there? “But”. Now what are the FOUR common words that follow those statements? “I”, “Believe”, “See”, and “Think”. Now what do those four common words have in common? Answer: They’re attached to EMOTIONS and they’re actions based off a person’s THOUGHTS & FEELINGS! In other words, they’re taking what they FEEL to be morally right, instead of taking what the bible/Jesus AUTHORITATIVELY DECLARES is morally right!

In other words, many Christians today create this “false Jesus” that they’re comfortable with. “Well, MY Jesus would never condemn people to hell”, says liberal/lukewarm Christianity. No? Well, in that case, what did THAT form of “Jesus” die for, then? Cause “that” Jesus can’t save you! If, for example, active gay sex, etc. wasn’t a sin (according to the “liberal” Christian viewpoint), then what IS? WHO gets to determine what is “sin” and what is “not”, in THAT type of watered down gospel scenario? Does morality then become subjective?

WHO then gets to decide what is sin and what isn’t and how the rules will be enforced for transgressing that “sin?” If morality is “subjective”, then that would mean there’s NO morality and that “anything goes”. Which would then FALSELY suggest that Jesus Christ died on the cross for “nothing”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Many Christian folks have been blinded and bamboozled by Satan, Satan’s demons and the liberal LEFT into thinking they have no right to “rebuke sin”, they have no right to “preach the gospel”, they have no right to “call out false institutions/theology” and also have no right to believe/publicly say that what JESUS calls sin isn’t sin, etc. and it’s really, really sad!

Truth be told, the bible says Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. Therefore, Satan knows he must get in AS MUCH spiritual destruction as possible before his dreadful prophesied ‘END’ comes! So how does he do that, exactly? By COUNTERFEITING and/or watering down the bible and what’s written IN the bible. Let me elaborate. Men and women were created in the image of God, made for natural, traditional marriage (and natural procreation, as well). Therefore, Satan came up with “gay marriage” and “erosion of gender” movements, and “abortion”, etc.

Therefore, when liberal/lukewarm Christians align themselves with those bible-defying, Jesus-defying “agendas”, it’s like a personal spiritual slap in Jesus’s face! Because a man (or woman) can’t serve two masters. Either he will love the one or hate the other or hate the other and love the one.

In other words, a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-abortion viewpoints. A person can’t have Jesus AND pro-“gay marriage” viewpoints. Just like a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-transgender viewpoints. If a person WANTS to have pro-transgender, pro-abortion, and pro-gay marriage viewpoints, they can have those viewpoints all they want to. But they MUST take Jesus Christ OUT of it, cause Jesus Christ wants absolutely nothing to do with those ungodly things!!!!!!  

Folks, truth be told, we will ALL (even ME) stand before the mighty judgement seat of Jesus Christ, someday. And the last thing a “Christian” person would EVER truly want Jesus asking them is WHY they approved of such “unbiblical practices/concepts” while they were still living on the Earth or WHY they didn’t speak out AGAINST “the liberal Christian church’s” approval of such unbiblical practices while they were still living on the Earth, while they still had time!

Many preachers today preach these “feel good” messages. And while it’s good to occasionally build Christians UP and give them some spiritual hope and confidence in themselves, it’s NEVER a good thing to neglect the message of Repentance and Salvation altogether for the sake of “itching ears” and “making everyone happy”.

Sometimes a preacher has to preach it to the people RAW. Why? Because that’s the ONLY way they’re gonna TRULY get the message. Just imagine if Jesus, upon first seeing the money-changers in the Jewish temple, had GENTLY and SOFTLY said that they weren’t supposed to be doing that. The people in the temple probably would’ve laughed at him and the like. However, when He made whips from cords and YELLED at them before/while overthrowing the money changers tables, they immediately KNEW the seriousness of what He was saying!

Therefore, if one TRULY wants to align themselves with what is BIBLICAL and DO AWAY WITH what is NOT biblical (as a Christian who’s seeking to live the way Jesus would have them live, and NOT the way the “world”/secular culture would have them live), keep reading:

NON-BIBLICAL PRACTICES THAT THE WORLD/SECULAR CULTURE TRIES TO TOUT AS  ‘OK’ OR “OK TO DO” THAT THE “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE – SPECIFICALLY HERE IN “SECULAR AMERICA”) HAS NOW SEEMED TO EMBRACE IN 2018:

  • Lying
  • Envying
  • Cussing
  • Cheating
  • Saying the Lord’s Name in Vain
  • Stealing (stealing credit for someone else’s work, etc.)
  • Seeking Revenge/Getting Even
  • Getting Angry With Others When Provoked
  • Getting An Abortion/Being “Pro-Choice”
  • Being in an Active Homosexual Relationship
  • Fighting for Gay/Trans Rights
  • The Erosion of Gender
  • Gluttony
  • Greed
  • Mocking Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Having Sex Outside of Marriage
  • Gossip
  • Treating Santa Claus & The Easter bunny as though they’re a “god” of sorts
  • Chasing after $$$$$$$$$$ and material things
  • Getting “spiritual enlightenment” in things/people other than Jesus Christ (yoga, etc.)
  • Worshiping celebrities/famous people
  • ETC.

Ok, now that we’ve got a clear handle on what’s NOT biblical to do, I’ll now list practices that ARE biblical to do: 

  • Being honest (even if it’s hard)
  • Being happy for others’ successes and NOT envying what belongs to others
  • Controlling one’s language & NOT cussing
  • PRAISING the name of the Lord Jesus, instead of saying His name in vain
  • Not stealing someone else’s work credit/etc.
  • Forgiving others
  • Remaining calm with others when provoked
  • Not getting an abortion (being Pro-Life)
  • Not participating in any form of “Sodomy” and/or “Sodmomous relationship”
  • Not fighting for Trans/LGBT rights but rather speaking out about the TRUE psychological damage that “Pro-Transgender/LGBT policy” is doing to people today, spiritually and otherwise!
  • Fighting for the hetero-normative definition of gender (“male” and “female”)
  • Not over-eating; eating only what is necessary
  • Not being consumed by greed but rather, praying for and focusing on others
  • Preaching Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Saving oneself for marriage
  • Not getting excessively drunk with alcohol or “getting high”
  • Trying your best not to “gossip” about others
  • Keeping one’s body pure & untainted, for the bible says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
  • Celebrating the BIBLICAL holidays that Jesus & his disciples celebrated (Passover, Tabernacles, etc)
  • Worshiping on the TRUE, 7th-day, blessed & sanctified by the Lord Sabbath (Saturday)
  • Chasing after righteousness/the Lord’s approval, instead of man’s approval
  • Receiving spiritual enlightenment in Jesus and Jesus, ONLY!
  • Speaking OUT against idols/worshiping of “celebrities”
  • ETC.

I felt compelled to write this after seeing a “slew” of stories about people who identify themselves as “Christian”, yet, approve/partake in viewpoints/behaviors that are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what TRUE, biblical morality is, in the name of Jesus! And thus, those poor “deceived folks” are CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ! 

Isaiah 5:20-21 puts it THIS way:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 

Isaiah further goes on to say (verses 22-25): “Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” 

Translation? Jesus’s mighty anger is KINDLED (that means, RAGING) against those people who call themselves “Christian”, yet, turn HIS heavenly law & decrees ASIDE for the sake of THEIR personal, emotional/physical “convenience(s)”.

Why? Because they were originally armed with the truth, they KNEW better! Whereas, a totally unsaved person likely did NOT! In other words, Jesus naturally expects unsaved people to “act” like they’re unsaved. However…..He does NOT expect Christian people who identify AS Christian to “act” as though they’re unsaved/act like “the world” (if that makes any sense?)

two jesuses, eight TWO JESUSES, THREE TWO JESUSESS, SIGN 

And last but not least: If the “liberal/lukewarm church” (as a whole) had been around during Jesus’s time on Earth, this illustration is probably what it would look like:

TWO JESUSES, SIX

[Okay, first of all, my apologies to anyone who can’t eat gluten or that’s a vegan. Please know that I’m not personally attacking you in any way, shape or form….I’m only merely using the above illustration as an example of what TODAY’S liberal/lukewarm Christianity might’ve looked like back in ancient, biblical times!]

In other words, the “liberal”/lukewarm church – as a whole – (& unsaved folks) has to constantly find something wrong with God’s law and/or God’s Spiritual Provisions for his people……..to see them as “outdated” and “archaic”. Why? Because it’s the only way they can think of to work around it. Because they want to worship Jesus in their own “liberal”/lukewarm way. Why? So they can do whatever they want

Only, they’re not totally realizing that IN doing/focusing on whatever they want, instead of what Jesus Christ wants for them and their lives, and in worshiping Jesus in the way they want to worship him, instead of worshiping Jesus the way HE wants to be worshiped, they are instead doing what SATAN wants, and IN so doing, are actually DEFYING Jesus Christ by the WAY that they LIVE! (“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – Romans 6:23).

Calling oneself a “Christian” and/or a “child of God” does NOT automatically make one Christian and/or a child of God! (Atleast in Jesus’s eyes, anyways!) For it is ONLY true, joyful obedience to Christ and his heavenly laws, trust & belief in Christ, being spiritually born again IN Christ, and REPENTANCE of sins that makes one a “Christian” and/or “child of God!”

BUT OF GOD

Translation? Only those who are BORN AGAIN in the SPIRIT and RECEIVE HIM (that means, to FULLY SURRENDER THEIR ENTIRE LIVES TO HIM) does HE give the “right” to become a “Christian” and “child of God!”

There’s SO many people out there today who think that ALL humans are “God’s children” or “children of God” but folks, that’s just NOT the case! For ONLY a select “few” are ABLE to get this spiritual distinction. How? By OBEDIENCE to Christ! And obedience to Christ does NOT mean skirting God’s law……not in ANY way, shape or form!

[[[[But again, it isn’t just a spiritually lethargic attitude towards God’s laws that Christians have (a whole) but believe it or not, now even some of the Jews themselves are starting (as a whole) to go liberal/lukewarm, as these two articles illustrate: (which only FURTHER PROVES THAT WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS, FOLKS!)

http://mentalfloss.com/article/91594/theres-wire-above-manhattan-youve-probably-never-noticed and https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-landmark-ruling-high-court-says-tel-aviv-mini-markets-can-open-on-sabbath/]]]]

Therefore, if YOU want the “RIGHT” to be called a “child of God”, then YOU must be born again in the spirit and YOU must fully surrender to Christ and obey Him, IN FULL! Not 3/4th obey him, not PARTIALLY obey him but 100% FULLY OBEY HIM in ALL that you do in this life! And to fully OBEY him means to OBEY HIS LAWS & DECREES!

Love Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind and strength! Give to those in need! Place others’ needs before your own needs! Cause remember: there’s LOTS and LOTS of lost souls out there! THEY should be your primary focus! Remember what YOU and YOUR life was like before YOU were fully saved in the name of Jesus! Imagine what would’ve happened in your life if you had died without Jesus……..imagine what would’ve happened if YOU did not have a Christian believer who prayed for you and preached to you about Jesus…..Imagine where you would be today if YOU had NOT had someone intercede for you on Jesus’s behalf! (Pretty scary and sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks?) 

Many folks think his law stopped at the 10 commandments! However, during the Sermon on the Mount, He EXPOUNDED on the 10 commandments, as well as talked about their original INTENT! (Wow! That’s just mind-blowing, isn’t it, folks!?)

And not only that but commands were added in OTHER places of the bible as well, such as Matthew 28, where Jesus tells his followers to “make disciples of ALL nations”, etc. And in the Old Testament, there were several dietary laws and “biblical holidays” that STILL APPLIED to Jesus and his disciples during the times of the New Testament, as well as to us Christians, TODAY! 

How we do know that? Simple. DURING the Sermon on the Mount (which is considered some of Jesus’s MOST important commandments in the bible), he said in Matthew 5:17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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

 

In other words, ALL won’t be fulfilled till the VERY END of Revelation, chapter 22! Therefore, UNTIL the very end of Revelation, chapter 22, THE OT (Old Testament) LAWS & CELEBRATIONS/HOLIDAYS (minus animal sacrifice, for Jesus Christ BECAME the sacrificial lamb for MANY) STILL APPLY!

And guess what, folks? Did you know that the biblical feasts will STILL APPLY even during the Times of the New Millennial (specifically, the Feast of Tabernacles?) Alot of Christians don’t know that today because “the church today” (as we know it) hasn’t TOLD them the truth! It’s not their fault, entirely. Many were born and raised in “the church”. But what’s sad is that pastors are not preaching the COMPLETE truth to their congregations (as a whole). I used to be one of those Christians that NEVER questioned a pastor’s word for it, that NEVER questioned the history of Christianity, etc. 

But now that I DO know about these things, I feel like it’s my job to shout it from the rooftops (in a metaphorical and spiritual sense) about THE TRUTH about the Roman Catholic Church, Protestantism (“Refined Catholicism”) and the global deception going around today called “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIANITY”….The type of Christianity that does away with God’s law, creates “new traditions” that weren’t OF the bible originally and would seem totally FOREIGN to Jesus and his disciples and/or ancient followers and says “anything goes”.

Well, let me ask you something: IF the perpetual theology/practice of lukewarm/liberal Christianity was enough to cause a person to be sent to HELL and/or THE LAKE OF FIRE someday (that is, if they NEVER fully repented of such lukewarmness before death, etc.), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that those poor folks should be HIGHLY WARNED of their sinful thinking/behavior WAY BEFOREHAND so that they (hopefully) have plenty of time to REPENT (to give up and STOP doing the behaviors that are DISPLEASING to Jesus/God?)

Sadly, this whole entire “Liberal Christian Movement” got started by the Gay Movement, who wanted Christians to FEEL BAD or ASHAMED about their “Christian morality” (i.e. the bible’s view that it’s a sin to be actively gay, etc.) Therefore, they shamed many Christians AWAY from the hard-line authority of the bible with the words “homophobic” and “born this way”. And the Gay Movement has MANY, MANY, MANY Christian people (and even non-Christian people) deceived BECAUSE of it!

And Folks, there is NO “gay gene”. Never has been and never will be. Why do you think that is? Answer: Because they were NOT “born that way”. God doesn’t create “gay people”, only society and social environment/upbringing produces “gay people”. One day, I believe it (the so-called “gay gene) will be “faked” by secular science (but that’s a whole different story!) Back in 1969, the DSM-II listed homosexuality as a “mental disorder”. Only by SEVERE pressure from the left did the DSM folks “change their tune”. Please keep in mind that “transgenderism” is STILL considered a “mental disorder” (under the term “gender dysphoria”). 

It also doesn’t help that many of today’s “liberal Christians” ARE celebrities/famous people. Because lets face it, many Christian “lay people” at large look UP to these folks. And so, if THEY (Christian “celebrities – as a whole) have a “liberal” Christian theology, then it’s going to make many OTHER Christian people out there also have a “liberal” Christian theology…….instead of being likened onto a Berean Christian who’s searching the scriptures DAILY, to see “rather or not these things are so”.

But in fact, sadly, many of these Christian celebrities (as a whole), are very likely DECEIVED by Satan and his demons and I oftentimes pray that Satan will lose his grip on them! (Money & fame can easily turn into two powerful spiritual deceptors and even many non-Christian celebrities fall victim to its trappings!)

As a whole, many liberal Christian celebrities out there today (as a whole) seem to think they can have their cake and eat it, too (spiritually speaking). But in fact, just like I said above, no man (or woman, for that matter) can serve two masters, cause either he will hate the one and love the other or love the other and hate the one.

But let me take this a step further. Are some of these folks even “Christian” to begin with, if they publicly do things that go completely AGAINST the bible? By doing so, they are no doubt CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ and are causing many Christians to fall! And we KNOW from the bible that Jesus Christ is NOT a God of confusion, folks! He is a CONSISTENT God! HE does not change, NOR do his LAWS change! He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore! 

Sadly, some of these folks are even PURPOSELY branding themselves “Christian” and then, subtly doing things that actually go AGAINST the bible in order to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! My soul is VERY, VERY GRIEVED OVER THIS!!!!! Because not only have THEY been deceived by Satan and his demons, but they in turn are ALSO deceiving others. Is there NO END to all this “liberal Christian deception!?” ;-( 

I KNOW firsthand what the Wrath of Jesus is like! Just like I KNOW firsthand what it will likely BE like for all those folks someday that THINK or THOUGHT they were “right” with Jesus during their Earthly lives, only to discover at the very, very last terrifying moment that they were NEVER, EVER “right” with Jesus, ALL ALONG! OUCH! Therefore, that’s the VERY THING I’m trying to prevent with this very here POST (& EVEN THIS WHOLE ENTIRE BLOG, EVEN!) I love each and every single one of you and want ALL of you to be ETERNALLY saved in the name of Jesus! 

In closing, I just want to say this: IT’S NOT THE WILL OF GOD IF IT GOES AGAINST THE (WRITTEN) WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE)/ AND/OR THE WORD OF GOD (JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF!)“. Even I myself find myself somewhat convicted on that one. For example, I had briefly *almost* considered dating a non-Christian most recently.  (Notice the key word here is *almost!*).

So what stopped me dead in my (spiritual) tracks? (Jesus? The Holy Spirit?) asked me the following fateful questions: “Do you remember how the ancient Israelites complained out in the desert, after being delivered from Egypt by my mighty hand? Do you remember how they complained because they didn’t fully TRUST me or have 100% unfaltered faith IN Me? Well…..when YOU withstand MY biblical principles to please another that doesn’t EVEN adhere to me, you’ve now become likened onto a complaining Israelite out in the desert, in my eyes. This is your desert. This is your time of testing. Ah….you didn’t even REALIZE you were being tested, did you? Well, now you do. YOU are being spiritually tested and I pray that now that you KNOW this, that YOU will now be equipped to pass the test. Don’t ever, ever, EVER withstand BIBLICAL principles for a non-Christian, it will end up VERY BADLY!”

But if I HAD gone through with it (dating a non-Christian)? I would’ve been likened onto a “liberal” Christian of the viewpoint of “I’m a Christian BUT I think it’s OK to date a non-Christian”. See how Satan wants to feed off of our weaknesses…….? By putting certain types of “thoughts” into our minds like: “Isn’t that a non-Christian thing to do? To discriminate against someone who isn’t a Christian?” (when it comes to dating). See how the devil rolls, folks? He tries to turn our very own righteousness AGAINST US! “Isn’t that HATEFUL to NOT be accepting of LGBT/Womens’ Reproductive rights?” 

And yes, on the surface, it might not “seem” very “Christian-like” for a Christian to not date a non-Christian. But ya know what, folks? In the end, you’ll be VERY, VERY GLAD that you listened to Jesus, and NOT to the “spiritual voice” of someone who’s NOT Jesus! Why? Because the bible says that we are NOT to be unevenly yoked!!!!!! (Therefore, listen to JESUS, and NOT to fellow man! TRUST ME ON THIS!!!)

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”

– 2 Cortinthians 6:14-17 KJV

But folks, we GOT to remember something, here. WHEN a person speaks AGAINST the written word of God (the bible), (ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE “CHRISTIAN”), they are NOT speaking for Christ but speaking for Satan! That person, IN that moment, is temporarily possessed by Satan and/or a demon! So if you AGREE with the person OR give in to them, you are giving in to SATAN/a demon! That’s a pretty scary, sobering thought, isn’t it, folks?

Therefore, WE MUST BE ON SPIRITUAL GUARD AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!** Don’t ever, ever, EVER let your spiritual guard down or take any “counsel” from someone who is not a Christian or is a liberal/lukewarm Christian, PERIOD! Because the ONLY thing the spirit inside that person wants is YOUR spiritual destruction, so remember that, folks! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MUSIC: A WAR FOR YOUR SOUL!

Have you ever wondered why songs (in general) have a long “introduction” before the lyrics come about? Or also why a certain song and/or songs get stuck in your head all the time? Do you think this is all just mere COINCIDENCE?

Songs (by nature) are/were DESIGNED (by the spirit world) to put the listener into a VERY, VERY DEEP “trance-like meditative state”. The question is, does it put them into a GOOD trance (where they are motivated to worship the Lord Jesus, in spirit and in truth) or does it put them in a BAD trance (where it encourages a person to say/think/do things that go AGAINST the bible?)

I’ve honestly had songs (and/or parts of songs) that were stuck in my head for HOURS, DAYS, and WEEKS! And I kept having to ask myself WHY! And then, when I finally succeeded in getting THAT particular song unstuck out of my head, YET ANOTHER song would get stuck in my head for DAYS on end!

Or worse yet, I sometimes get the case of what I call “SONG FEVER”, where I have to listen to a song over and over and over again…….and if I DON’T listen to the current song on repeat, my mind starts to go stir-crazy! “What is this?”, I aggravatingly think to myself. “This is madness! What the hey!” And I used to think it was just mere “coincidence”. Little did I know it is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE that I was/am experiencing! (A warfare of THE MIND!)

Take tribal African voodoo, for instance. Many “pop songs” are today BASED on voodoo (yes, voodoo!). Lets look through a few examples, here…..

1). “Sympathy for the Devil” by Rolling Stones, 1968

Note: If you slow it down and listen to the beginning, it’s CLEARLY voodoo beats being played in the song, followed by what sounds like “monkey/jungle calls”. The “monkey calls” are probably some hidden thing to “summon demons/demon spirits” and/or to display the “theory of Evolution”, somehow.

And here’s another VERY popular song from the 80’s which has DEFINITE voodoo in it, from start to finish (it even has “Satanic growls” in it!)

2). “Gloria Estefan – Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” – 1987

There’s also THIS song (which clearly has voodoo beats in the background, as well, starting at 0:40 and again at 0:55):

3). “Come & Get It” by Selena Gomez, 2013 or so

In fact, nearly ALL “popular songs” of today have what’s called “Syncopation”. Now………“What’s syncopation?”, some may ask. Answer: it is basically a “disturbance” or “interruption” of the REGULAR, natural flow of rhythm. In other words, it takes “natural rhythm” and makes it UN-NATURAL rhythm (in other words, rhythm’s that off-beat).

Here, Christian Berdahl explains it in a little more detail:

So basically, whenever you get a song stuck in your head, 9 times out of 10, it’s because Satan and demons are behind it! Remember, Satan is BEHIND the “Music & Entertainment Industry”, today! Even most of today’s “CHRISTIAN MUSIC” today is “suspect”. Why? Because it honestly sounds no different than “contemporary” music!

Why? Because it ALSO (as a whole today) uses “Syncopation”, just like all of today’s “worldly music” does. Don’t believe me? Do an experiment. Flip through all the car radio stations. Then go to the Christian music station. Notice anything different? My guess is no. If you didn’t know AHEAD of time that it WAS the Christian station, would you have mistaken it for a “secular” radio station? Be honest with yourself!

Satan is “implied” in the bible to have been “full of music” (BEFORE “the fall from heaven”). Therefore, Satan knows music like his back hand. He knows it inside and out. And so it’s really no wonder THAT he uses “music” as one of his primary weapons to “deceive the masses”.

Okay, now I want you to conduct another “experiment”. Listen to your “favorite song”. How does the song make you FEEL? Does it humble you before the Lord Jesus Christ and make you want to worship him? Or does it make you think of OTHER things, besides Jesus and the bible? Be COMPLETELY honest with yourselves!

And if it’s CHRISTIAN music you’re listening to, does it REALLY encourage you to worship Jesus, in spirit and in truth? Or do all the back-beats, etc. DISTRACT YOU from doing so and make you more focused on the beat, rather than on the message? Be honest with yourself!

Many think that ALL “Christian music” is just fine and dandy. But only most recently have folks come to realize that EVEN “Christian music” is suspect these days (sadly enough). So don’t fool yourselves! Just because a piece of Christian music has the label “Christian” on it does NOT make it “truly Christian”!

For example, many “Christian” female vocalists sing all “sensual”, as though they’re singing to a LOVER, instead of Jesus Christ! (I’m sorry, but it’s true!) And with all the drum beats, back-beats, break-beats, clap-beats, I’d never know most of these songs were a supposedly “Christian” song!

Examples?

1). “Lauren Daigle – First” (This is sung the way a woman would sing to a lover!)

2). “TobyMac – Feel It” (This is sung as though the goal is to be like Bruno Mars!)

ETC….

But then again, what is a TRUE “Christian song”, by definition? Answer: It is one that completely clears the mind (in a GOOD sense), has NO “syncopation” or “background beats/distractions” and ENCOURAGES the Christian listener to worship Jesus (in spirit and in truth):

“Let Them See You” by JJ Weeks Band

Notice the difference there, folks? But again, I’m not personally judging or bashing the two above Christian artists (only Jesus knows their hearts), I’m just saying that the “syncopated-type music” and the *sultry*-sounding lyrics distracts from THE ACTUAL MESSAGE OF SALVATION!

There’s even this whole movement among the Christians today that we (as a whole), must become more “wordly” in our music and in our messages in order to “draw in more people from the world/those that are unsaved”.

HOWEVER, WHEN Christians or “the church” become more “worldly” in their “music” or in their “doings”, they’re actually doing themselves a SERIOUS disservice, as it’s showing the “worldly/unsaved people of the world” the message that: “Hey, Christians are just as worldly as WE are, so I guess there’s no real need to change and repent of our sins!

Even “country music” is not immune from Satan’s grip!

But in fact, let me take this one step further. A popular music artist (who openly worships Satan) has come out and admitted that each of her performances is “a sermon”. Interesting. Therefore, if we can apply her words to ALL secular music these days, and ALL secular music is “individual sermons”, then it most certainly sheds light on the fact that SATAN DESIGNED MUSIC AS ***SPIRITUAL WARFARE!***

Now that’s a tough message for most Christians to grasp (especially those born in the 80s and 90s!) They like their Def Leppard, Bruce Springstein, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Madonna, REO Speedwagon, Mister Mister, Poison, TLC, Metallica, Motley Crue, etc. But rarely do they ever look at all the symbolism (and “spiritual agendas”) BEHIND the music!

Most people might thinking that listening to music is an “innocent thing”. But believe me folks, most music was designed by Satan & his demons for ***HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!!!!!!!***!!! And not only that, but did you know that nearly ALL music artists sell their souls to the Devil for money, fortune & fame? (It’s true!) Don’t believe me? Watch the following “rocumentary”, as it WILL open up your eyes as to what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes of the music industry & L.A./Hollywood!

Here is parts 1 through 5 on Youtube:

Now…..am I saying that ALL music is bad? No, ofcourse not. Music has been shown in studies to improve mood, sleep quality, memory, brain activity, etc. However, one should be more mindful from now on about just WHAT type of music they listen to. Because remember that music was designed by Satan for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Remember that Satan USES music to “deceive the masses!” Plus remember that Satan uses music to try to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ!

But one of the BEST ways to “test” a song is to critically examine the LYRICS! (Please also remember that many popular songs of today have lyrics with “hidden meanings!”) Critically examine the lyrics and then ask yourself if it’s something you should be listening to or not. But again, don’t just look at the lyrics, examine the BEAT of the song, as well.

Example: If it’s a “Christian song” but has a “hip hop/break-beat” (and music video) that’s set up like a Bruno Mars song, then that should tell you something right there. Or if it’s a “Christian song” but you’re more focused on the “beat” or “the drums” or the “artist/sultry voice” than the “message”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

After watching both documentaries (both Christian Berdahl’s “The Distraction Dilemna” and “They Sold Their Souls For Rock N’ Roll”), my spiritual eyes were thoroughly opened and so NOW, when I flip through the radio stations and I hear songs that Satan originally intended to deceive people with, I am now armed with the spiritual knowledge of what the “true meanings” of those songs are and I am no longer deceived BY them! And trust me, it’s nothing short of a spiritually liberating feeling in Christ!

So……what types of music SHOULD a true born-again Christian be listening to, you may ask? Well, here’s my personal, spiritual recommendations:

1). Christian music that uplifts your spirit and ENCOURAGES you to worship Jesus in spirit and in truth (In other words, music that has you TRULY focused on the gospel/Jesus and NOT on the voice, the beat or the “rhythm”)

2). Romantic love songs that do NOT glorify fornication or anything else that’s unbiblical

3). Classical or uplifting instrumentals

I myself for years & years had been a long-time fan of Trance/Electronic, etc. music. But after critically examining the fact that if you slow it down, it sounds like a slow, repetitive voodoo beat highly spiritually disturbs me!

In fact, I even said a troubled-in-my-heart prayer to Jesus about it: Jesus, does it displease you that I occasionally listen to Trance/Electronic music, etc? and the answer I seemed to get back from him is THIS: “Does it encourage you to worship me at all? Or does it distract you & make you think of OTHER things, besides ME?”

Okay folks, I felt CONVICTED! And ever since then, I’ve severely limited my Trance/etc. listening! Because NOW, any time I listen to Trance etc. music, I can FEEL Jesus’s spiritual gaze upon me as if to say, “Feeling distracted, are we?” and I just can’t enjoy that type of music anymore! It just feels…….wrong!

Now……we’ve all heard that LUST can be a temptation or that TV/video games/food/drink can be a temptation. But can MUSIC also be a temptation? Answer: ABSOLUTELY! For after being “spiritually convicted” not to listen to Trance, etc. music anymore, I can’t tell ya HOW many times I’ve been “tempted” to listen to it! (And yes, sometimes I’ve given IN to the temptation to listen to it and then felt guilty & ashamed, afterwards!) 

Like, I really have to fight the urge to NOT listen to it, sometimes! It used to come as a natural habit to me…….Turn on the computer, hit the playlist, and give it a whirl! Believe me, it takes ALOT of spiritual discipline to NOT listen to our favorite music that actually spiritually DISTRACTS US and takes us AWAY from the gospel/Jesus Christ! I had to learn that the hard way!

Non-fornicating love songs, classical or uplifting instrumentals might not “seem” like they fully glorify Jesus. However……non-fornicating love songs can remind us of Jesus’s love for his church, while classical or uplifting instrumentals can remind us of the beauty of God’s creation, especially of “musical scales” in general. Many people don’t realize this but “music” is actually composed of mathematical algorithms! And our God (the God of the bible) is no doubt a “mathematical God!”

But that aside, did you know that they did a study on “plant growth” vs. “music”. And not surprisingly enough, when “plants” listened to classical music, they THRIVED! But yet, when plants listened to “death metal”, they withered up and DIED! (And if I remember correctly, BOTH types of music were played at the exact same volume, in the study!)

Therefore, it stands to reason: if “plants” (which are “living”) thrive on classical music, why wouldn’t WE? Studies have shown, for example, that listening to classical music before a test can increase test scores! (It would be interesting to see how plants responded to the JJ Weeks Band or non-fornicating love songs!)

But again, I digress. The moral of the story here is that MUSIC AFFECTS OUR SOULS – either for the positive or the negative. Therefore, it’s up to us to try to only listen to music that UPLIFTS our minds, hearts, bodies & spirits IN Jesus and that does NOT distract us from the gospel in any way, shape or form! I hope this post has given you something to think about, when it comes to music! What you listen to really DOES affect you SPIRITUALLY – rather you realize it or not! So choose wisely! Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20 Popular Songs That Try To Advocate/Symphathize With MURDER and/or Necrophilia:

The following is a LONG list of songs and/or music videos that advocate MURDER. What is WITH the music industry, lately? Has “murder” now become the “in thing” or something? WHAT IS GOING ON, HERE? To merely “think” about murder is grizzly enough……..but to write a SONG about it? Or to cover a song about it? What are we as a society coming to? There is SO LITTLE disregard for human life, today! ;(

What’s even MORE disturbing is that these 20 songs are just the TIP of the iceberg! There’s SEVERAL more out there! And even more disturbing YET is when I went TO Google & Yahoo Answers to search up songs about murder, there were NUMEROUS posts of people asking the same question and then putting a SMILEY FACE by it! This country and INDEED this global world is living in a SICK, TWISTED, PERVERSE GENERATION!!!! MARK MY WORDS!!!!!!!!!

And this can only mean that Jesus Christ’s 2nd coming to the Earth is all the more closer than ever before. [I will soon write another post about the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. Until then, please read your King James Version bibles and pray that you’ll be considered worthy in the Lord Jesus’s site when he soon returns to the Earth to establish his Millennial Kingdom. Also please remember that Satan is ANGRY [with God and with mankind] since he knows his time is short. So he’s trying to get as much murder & mayhem & destruction on the Earth as much as possible before then. And that is evident in all of these songs!!!!]

As a further challenge, I challenge some of you to watch some of the following music videos of these songs (or of some of your “favorite songs”) WITHOUT THE VOLUME ON. Just look at all the images that come across the screen. More often than not, you will see people who appear to be demonically possessed, sexual lasciviousness, the color black (which represents death/spiritual wickedness/Satan/decay), images of skulls and/or mirrors (the occult), the color red (Satan/Satanism), crows or ravens (occult/death/decay), tattoos (“nobody owns me but me”, a Satanic concept), owls (occult), etc.

Plus, I’m gonna have to be totally honest with you, here. The following music videos, I was barely able to stomach! So I doubt most of the Christian readers here will be able to stomach such lyrics and images, either. However, if you view ANY of the following videos or look at any of the following titles and think to yourself “yeah, that song was made to be a joke/parody, so what” or “yeah, so, what’s the big deal?”, your very SOUL is in danger! For that means that Satan has ALREADY deceived you into thinking “hey, it’s not that bad”, which means he will be able to FURTHER deceive you (possibly someday to the point of no return) unless you repent and start to DILIGENTLY seek Jesus Christ and I do mean DILIGENTLY, not PARTIALLY, not HALFWAY, but TOTALLY and COMPLETELY.

If you think any of the following songs are “not that bad”, I would strongly encourage you to pray the following prayer: “Lord Jesus, please show me what’s wrong about each and every single one of these songs and/or music videos or ones LIKE them. Please show me the truth about Satan and his demons and the music industry. Please set me free from the major deceptions OF the music industry and popular movies/tv shows and culture. Please open up my eyes and help me to DILIGENTLY seek you. Thank you Lord, Amen”.

Satan in “Christian Music”

For years, pastors in churches have encouraged many young church goers not to listen to “secular music” (which, in their minds, was of the devil) but instead, to listen to “Christian” or “gospel music”. And today, there are many young Christian music groups, to be sure. But just how truly “Christian” are they? Lets examine the evidence.

The following article in the Toronto Sun is about As I Lay Dying frontman, Tim Lambesis.

http://www.torontosun.com/2014/06/23/imprisoned-as-i-lay-dying-frontman-tim-lambesis-admits-to-lying-about-faith-to-sell-records

Sadly, Mr. Lambesis is not an outlier for there are MANY groups in the “Christian music bizz” that aren’t actually Christian but only PRETEND to be to sell records/etc.

Check out the following music video from one of the world’s most-renowned “Christian bands” P.O.D. — Watch real closely and you will see group members and audience members doing the devil sign. Seriously.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWl9tjO7KtA

1). boy doing devil sign at 1:09
2). demon screeches at 3:14 and beyond
3). 2:08-2:09 yet ANOTHER devil sign

And last but not least is a link to one of Carrie Underwood’s most recent music videos. (For those of you who don’t know Carrie Underwood, she’s the one renowned for singing “Before He Cheats” and “Jesus Take The Wheel). Carrie Underwood, by many, is considered to be the “Christian darling of country music”. However, there’s many dark & Satanic themes in her music videos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVEBZLrjpw4

Right off the bat, if you listen without the sound on, you will notice SEVERAL Satanic themes in the video. You will see the color black (which represents death/decaying/dying), bright red painted fingernails (which represent Satan), a cemetery (which also represents death/decay/dying), black veils (which represent Satan and darkness) and a song that’s apparently about advocating MURDER!

In her “Jesus Take The Wheel” music video, you can ALSO notice several Satanic themes (if you view the video without the sound on). You will notice that she’s in a rich mansion, is looking into MIRRORS (a well-known Occultic symbol), does a very subtle devil sign at 1:16, a bright red chair and golden lamp (representing Satan and Satan’s throne), that she’s possessed at 1:25, that she’s actually SITTING in the red chair at 1:36 (meaning, her subservience to Satan), that she’s “smirking” at the viewer as IF to say “ha ha ha ha, you don’t know the difference!” at 1:40, that she gives a “smirk” at 1:41, etc. etc.

And in the following video, you can ALSO clearly see many Satanic themes all throughout. There’s FIRE onstage (signifying the FLAMES OF HELL), her & Miranda Lambert are all dolled up and dressed like hookers, not to mention the gyrating of their bodies and hips is ANYTHING **BUT** CHRISTIAN!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK__-NEequM

And the actual music video rendition of the song fares no better, especially at 2:08 where Carrie Underwood’s not only dressed like a hooker but is gyrating her hips and body around like one!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4Yzj-m_SBk

Sadly, these two musical groups are just one of SEVERAL “Christian bands” who aren’t actually Christian but that only pretend to be in order to sell records.

But that goes back to a previous point I was trying to make. When we start to think another fellow human being, music group, movie, videogame etc. is SO GREAT, we begin to lose our focus on Jesus Christ & his true gospel of Salvation and that’s when we unwittingly open ourselves up to be lied to and deceived by demon spirits (demon spirits that are EVER so apparent in today’s “Christian music”).

But in fact, I’ve got an assignment for all you readers here on WordPress (yes, an actual assignment! lol). When you have some time set aside, flip through all the radio stations on your tuner dial. ALL OF THEM. And then go back and stop at the “Christian radio station” (if you have one). Notice anything?

If you didn’t know it was the “Christian radio station”, would you have thought it was a “popular hits” or “secular station”? Be honest with yourself. Because more than likely, you will notice NO DIFFERENCE between the Christian station and the “secular stations”. And the reason being is that “Christian music” is no longer “Christian music” but is rather a DIVERSION in order to deceive people into thinking that they’re listening to actual Christian music rather than just REPACKAGED SECULAR MUSIC with the name “Christian” stamped on it. God help us all!

U.2. is one of the most popular 80’s bands. Their hit song “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” was a song that they PURPOSELY used to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! Sadly, many Christians are unbeknown of this fact! In fact, most recently, Bono was even featured on a CHRISTIAN RADIO PROGRAM……..yes, CHRISTIAN RADIO PROGRAM……..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU1zDgGkdj8

Pastor JD Farag gives an EXCELLENT sermon on the topic:

Start the video at 5:02 and go from there

At 10:48, he talks about the important point about how we can NOT serve two masters!

Christian Berdahl ALSO gives an EXCELLENT presentation on the subject, entitled “The Distraction Dilemna”

But if you really want to get down to the “nitty gritty” of things, most of ALL pre-recorded music is of the Devil, quite technically. Why? Because none of it has the “true heart” of God in it. When King David during the times of the Old Testament wrote the Psalms (which were also MUSICAL, by the way, and alot of people tend to forget that), he wrote them with his whole mind, heart, body and SOUL and it SHOWED!

However, when one hears a “pre-recorded” song on a Christian radio station today, the songs are just way too “convoluted” for one to truly pay attention to. It has too much backbeat, breakbeat, syncopation, etc. In fact, nearly all of them got what I call the “clap beat” or “Babylonian drumming pattern” in the background and I find that very annoying and distracting. Personally, I’ve ALWAYS hated the “clap beat” background in music, even as a small child.

In fact, I’ve always hated the concept of “clapping”, in and of itself even, but never really knew why…….I could never quite put my finger on it…….until I discovered most recently that the ancient Romans used to “clap” during ancient performances……in other words, “clapping” is actually of Pagan origin……so to me, that actually makes sense to me, now……who ever called that “music”, anyway? With a constant “clappy” background beat? It should instead be verbal words that say “headache, headache, headache”, haha! Does anyone ELSE out there hate the “clap beat” too, or is it just me?

Another interesting thing that alot of people don’t know (and wouldn’t know if they haven’t watched Christian Berdahl’s music seminar program entitled The Distraction Dilemma) is that a good majority of today’s music is actually based on REPETITIVE African tribal voodoo beats.

Now, before you get up in arms and call me crazy, consider the following 2 songs which demonstrate this: “What’s My Name?” by the Rolling Stones and “If you want it, come get it” by Selena Gomez.

The voodoo beats are meant to put the listener into a TRANCE. Have you ever wondered why all songs have a “long introduction” before the lyrics come about and also about WHY it is that certain songs get stuck in your head and start playing in your head OVER AND OVER AGAIN? And also why, when you try to think of ANOTHER song to try to get that song to get out of your head, THAT SONG then becomes stuck in your head and so on and so forth?

Also: WHY would music need to put you, the listener, into a TRANCE if it was all spiritually good? Think about that one for awhile……….Music (especially the kind of music in today’s world) is SPIRITUALLY DEMONIC, FOLKS! And music’s attack on the soul by Satan is ONLY THE BEGINNING! Because remember: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Truth About Hollywood…..HELL AWAITS…..

Back in the days of the Middle Ages, people didn’t trust “actors” and a rented room at a lodge or inn was hard for an “actor” to come by. After all, they were considered “outcasts” in society and nobody really knew what their true motives were while the Church considered them “sinful”.

But around the time of the 1920’s or so, “acting” (as a profession) really took off and started becoming more “mainstream” in society. People started flocking to theaters to see Charlie Chaplain movies and the like. And that’s around the time that “movies/film” from/in Hollywood (whom some have now dubbed Hellywood) became a lucrative business. And around the same time, music (in and of itself) became a popular past-time as well. But behind the music and behind the film industry was a more darker agenda: to draw people into the dark side.

For example, look at any “star” or “celebrity” today. Even just the name “star” in and of itself. Truly sit there for a minute and think about what that means. Remember in the bible where it states that Lucifer, the fallen angel as having stated (before his fall from heaven) “I will ascend my throne above the stars of God, I will be like the Most High”. Also think about how famous people often change their names after they become famous. Many people think it’s coincidence.

But that’s simply not true. Because when an actor(s)/musician(s) “sign a deal”, the producers and managers more or less OWN THEM, and they’re actually “signing over” their VERY OWN SOULS! Think about that for awhile. They are NO LONGER their own person and their own property but are more or less the property of the producers/managers, hence why they need the name change. [Note: Even those famous people lucky enough to keep their own name are still OWNED by the producers/managers as soon as they sign the contract]. They are told how to dress, how to act, what to say, what roles to take, whom to date or not date, etc. Basically, it’s all “staged”. Not to mention that fame and fortune COME AT A PRICE. Look at some of the PRICES that the following celebs had to pay to “get in”:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqvvOD4bdRs

Bob Dylan sold soul to devil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZGoixVlrKE

Katy Perry sold soul to devil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbmiOBN3U7Y

Kanye West sold soul to devil [watch from 2:00 mark]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUNxlwe8z1c

Snooki sold soul to the devil

Plus many, many, MANY more that are too countless to name!!!!!! ;(

Okay, so you have all these “stars” and celebrities [one meaning of “celebrity” was originally meant to mean “solemn rite or ceremony”] that are selling their souls to the devil and/or doing other crazy things (e.g. sleeping with producers, performing black magic rituals/etc.) in order to be rich and famous and to be WORSHIPED by millions of people around the world. You have teenage girls crying and screaming hysterically at the site of Justin Bieber, trying to get just one “touch” of him, their IDOL.

http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/music-news/justin-bieber-s-wax-figure-groped-into-retirement–removed-from-madame-tussauds-234020230.html

You have the tv show in and of itself called “AMERICAN IDOL”. You have COUNTLESS numbers of newspapers, magazines and even online news sites that are DEVOTED to “star culture” and “news about the stars”. You have the Roman Catholic and Lutheran Churches LITTERED with statues of Jesus and Mary, etc. Basically, everywhere you turn is all about IDOLS, IDOLS and more IDOLS. Our modern day society is inundated with them!

Like it or not, when we watch 98% of modern-day movies, read popular magazines or newspapers with so and so taking up the cover, listen to music, watch tv shows other than the news, ask for so and so to sign an autograph, go to “concerts”, etc., we are unwittingly participating (rather we consciously realize it or not) in what I’ve now dubbed the “Idolization Gateway to Hell”……Cause think about it. Even CHRISTIAN-themed TV shows 9 times out of 10 have some sort of “Catholic twist” to them (such as Joan of Arcadia, for instance) and ANYTHING that aligns itself with the Catholic church is PURELY DEMONIC (sad but true). 

And music in and of itself…….the bible indirectly refers to Lucifer as “musically inclined”. So why wouldn’t he use music to deceive the masses? Think about it. Even today’s CHRISTIAN MUSIC is appalling. There’s nothing but backbeat, breakbeat, syncopation, etc. In fact, I did a test most recently where I flipped through the popular radio stations and then put it on the “Christian” radio station. And guess what? I couldn’t tell the difference. They sounded the exact same.

And ditto with today’s “Christian” TV programming and even “Christian” movies, even! The true message of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been truly LOST, folks! Go to ANY popular “Christian” TV show or programming on TV or watch any “Christian” movie out there and you will see things that JUST AREN’T BIBLICAL. For example, I recently saw a Messianic Christian show on TV where the Rabbi said at the end “if this ministry has blessed you, send money”. I don’t see that ANYWHERE written in the bible, folks!

But see? That’s how Satan rolls. He searches out our personal “weaknesses”, then he CAPITALIZES on them! If he can’t get you addicted to Movies or TV or popular “celeb culture”, he’ll instead try to get you addicted to Music (and/or applications such as Spotify or Youtube, for instance). And if he can’t get you addicted to music, he’ll instead try to get you addicted to food, sex, drugs, alcohol, videogames, or some other like thing. And if he can’t get you addicted to THOSE things, he’ll try to make you HATE someone who’s close to you or that you work with.

And if THAT doesn’t succeed, he’ll try to get you to feel depressed or doubt your faith. And if THAT doesn’t succeed, he’ll just keep poking and prodding until he finds the something or someONE that makes you fall from grace. And once he has you there in that spot where he makes you fall from grace, he’ll CONTINUE to try to keep you there in that spot by slamming you with OTHER things, while you’re STILL trying to overcome the ORIGINAL thing he inundated you with, to begin with! Basically, he shows NO MERCY! 

However, when Jesus Christ died and shed HIS holy blood for for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins, God the Heavenly Father showed HIS mercy on US when he allowed Jesus’s sacrifice as payment for our sins! And THAT is the most greatest love and mercy, EVER! [3 days later, Jesus Christ was resurrected — google “the Shroud of Turin” — and then 40 days later, he ascended into heaven to be on the right hand throne of God the Heavenly Father].

Therefore, Jesus Christ will have mercy on ANYONE who prays for forgiveness of their sins and truly means it in their heart. But one can’t just PRAY for forgiveness of sins, one must also REPENT of them (that means, give them up for good). Because think about it, folks! 5 minutes of pleasure is NOT worth an eternity in the flames! 

Many people think that a “loving” God won’t send people to hell and/or the lake of fire. But have they ever stopped to consider that there were times in the bible when God got RIGHTEOUSLY ANGRY with his people? And even ETERNALLY CONDEMNED some of them? And have they not read about the part in the bible where Jesus Christ got ANGRY with his people for trying to turn the temple into a marketplace? Yes, God/Jesus Christ IS a loving God. But he is also a RIGHTEOUS, HOLY GOD! Which means that he can’t let unrepented sin go unpunished!

It might seem “cruel” or “unjust” to some folks out there that a “loving” God would send certain people to the flames for eternity, but guess what, folks? Those people simply CHOSE to go there. They were the folks whom God sounded warning after warning after warning but they just wouldn’t listen……

They just thought they were TOO GOOD for God, that they didn’t NEED God/forgiveness of their sins, that they were a good person by their OWN accord, and not be Jesus Christ’s accord. They were also the people who TURNED THEIR EYES FROM THE TRUTH by following FALSE RELIGIONS and FALSE DOCTRINES (such as Islam, Roman Catholicism, Atheism, New Ageism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.)

And yes, it “might” seem cruel that I’m saying that all non-repentant followers of other religions are heading on a path to eternal condemnation as it were, but the truth is, ALL other religions other than true, biblical Christianity ARE false religions simply based on the fact that true, biblical Christianity is the ONLY religion on Earth that has had 100% fulfilled bible prophecy, 100% of the time. NO OTHER RELIGION ON EARTH CAN MAKE THAT CLAIM! NONE. 

So please. I beg of you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul. If you are addicted to something or someone that takes you AWAY from Jesus Christ and the 100% truth of the bible and/or if you follow another religion other than true, biblical Christianity (aka “Jewish roots Christianity”), I strongly urge you to start getting to know Jesus Christ TODAY! Not tomorrow or the day after that but TODAY!

Tomorrow may not stand. WWIII could break out tomorrow. A sinkhole might swallow you whole. You might die of a heart attack or get hit by a bus tomorrow. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!  We NEVER know when we’re going to die. It could be 5 minutes from now or 50 years from now. But once we die, that’s it. There are NO second chances unless Jesus decides (for whatever reason) to bring someone back. And how do YOU know rather or not YOU will be one of those people or not? Answer: You DON’T and that’s why you shouldn’t place your ENTIRE eternal salvation on it.

I pray that ALL souls who read this (including myself) will be saved from their unwitting worship of idols and also that you, the great Lord of the heavens, Jesus Christ Almighty, will renew or ignite for the very first time (those that are or would be new to the faith), the faith, passion, knowledge and devotion to you and your divine word/commandments in the bible. Please chip away at every soul as much as you have to until they have no pride left to stand on and are humbled before your heavenly site. And please help every soul out there overcome any sin that’s holding them back from you and help KEEP those souls on the path of righteousness (amidst much clamour and opposition in today’s “dark world”) and please bless and keep those souls for eternity. Amen.

   

Today’s U.S. Society & World Has Basically Gone To Crap!!!! ;(

As of December 5th, 2013, 1:50p.m. central time, I’m SO appalled by the things going on in today’s world, that I don’t even know where to begin.

The world I grew up in, back in the 1980s and early 90s was SO much different than how things are today. For example, we actually LEARNED about U.S. History and the Declaration of Independence in our schools. Plus we were actually allowed to say the line “one nation under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance and we were NEVER taught about “homosexual relationships” and the like. In fact, it never even came up in discussion.

We also never had people suing each other (as far as I know) for the most frivolous of reasons (such as, for theoretical example: “your dog gave me a bad scratch mark on my arm so now I’m going to sue you for thousands of dollars”, etc.). Plus the TV shows back then then were actually modest (for the most part) and “family-friendly” (for example, Growing Pains, ALF, Family Ties, Home Improvement, McGuyver, Family Matters, Who’s The Boss, Quantum Leap, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, The Wonder Years, Saved By The Bell, etc.) And not only that but the shows were mostly CLEAN. They didn’t really promote cussing, drinking, drugs, teenage pregnancy, etc.

The TV shows we have TODAY that have replaced them are absolutely preposterous! Things such as Family Guy, Naked and Afraid, AMERICAN IDOL, Project Runway, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, America’s Top Model, Desperate Housewives, Pretty Little Liars, GREEK, Teen Mom, ELLEN, Charmed, Jersey Shore, Toddlers & Tiaras, SKINS (U.S. & Britain Versions), Queer As Folk, Queer Eye For the Straight Guy, Real Housewives of _____ (numerous variations), Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Dance Moms, etc. Most of these shows don’t promote the value of the traditional family and many of them promote lying, promiscuity, sexuality, drinking, etc.

Teen Mom promotes sexuality, physical battery and teenage pregnancy (obviously) while SKINS and GREEK promote sexuality, atheism, partying and marijuana use, etc. But yet, all these shows are just a few very sad examples of what our “culture” has become today. And ditto about today’s movies. (Did anyone else, for example, find it absolutely sickening and beyond grotesque that a movie would actually PROMOTE hunting/killing/massacring humans [The Hunger Games]?)

And when ya look around, there’s SO many bad things happening in today’s world and people stand there wondering why. Answer: It is because we are a world, society and nation that has turned our backs on God/Jesus Christ Almighty. Sin runs RAMPANT in today’s world: music, movies, television, videogames, etc. do anything BUT glorify Jesus Christ. In fact, they do just the opposite: they mock Jesus Christ at EVERY single turn. Don’t believe me? Here are just a few, sad examples:

Not to mention that today’s young people, as a whole, are generally so full of themselves (not all, but most). Just look at any Facebook or Twitter posting that most young people (specifically, in the 13-37 age range) today are making. They are all about “themselves” and no-one else. We are living in the age of “Entitlement”. Go to Youtube and you will see people boasting about how many subscribers they have or asking people to please subscribe. Go to Facebook and you will see people competing with each other by how many Facebook friends they got or how many “likes” they get on something. Also go to any blog or WordPress site and you will see RAMPANT cursing and people “hating” on one another.

And then you have the case of online bullying (which tragically in some cases, leads to suicide):

One of the most popular music videos of the 80s. The fact that most young people of today wouldn’t even be likely to figure out how this video is actually “mocking” God and not glorifying him illustrates just how far modern society has fallen away from God.

And as we, as a nation, have fallen away from God, so have our morals. The following stories illustrate this:

During a school prank, students are blindfolded, and told they are making out with someone special (another student that  goes to their school), only to later find out they were making out with their own opposite sex parents! SICKENING! ;(

6-year old girls are dressed up in provocative get-up but what’s even more disturbing is how the people in the audience (most specifically the PARENTS, of all people) are actually CHEERING! How sick can a person or group of people GET????? 😦

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAczPRl0orI 2:01-2:15 of the movie trailer is ABSOLUTELY SICKENING and made my stomach churn! ;(

Not to mention there’s been a DRAMATIC increase in school shootings and random shootings in just the past 5 years alone!

And ditto about the U.S. Economy

Satan’s War On the Soul Through *Music*

Many experts say that “media doesn’t effect people” or “it’s ONLY music”, “it’s ONLY a book”, “it’s ONLY a tv show”, etc. But clearly, “mass media” (specifically music) DOES effect people.

Just look at all the people on Youtube, Facebook, Myspace who post “cover songs”, “parodies”, “imitations of others” or videos about a 3-year old crying over a “pop music star” and we KNOW firsthand that media DOES in fact “effect people”.

Satan uses MANY tricks, ploys, people around us and distractions/gimmicks to try to get us as far AWAY from the true gospel of Jesus Christ/Salvation as much as possible! He does this because he is the “Master Deceiver” and the “Father of All Lies”. There is no truth in him!

And the truth is, ALL music is meant to put the listener in a trance/meditative state. But rather it’s a good trance or a bad trance will ofcourse depend on the listenerer themselves and the song itself.

Is it a good song that uplifts the spirit and encourages our very own soul spirit to worship Jesus Christ in all his power & glory in the heavens or is it a song that decieves and distracts us and takes us AWAY from the true gospel of Jesus Christ, on the subconscious level?

Have you ever had a song that was stuck in your head and kept playing over and over again in your mind and you couldn’t figure out why? And then, you’d stop trying to think of THAT song, only to have ANOTHER song get stuck in your head? There is a REASON that happens!

Here, Pastor JD Farag talks about the “dangers” of music and how Satan uses music to “destroy the soul”.

http://www.youtube.com/user/alohabibleprophecy#p/u/9/GKMTE6AXjII

And in this powerful & riveting “rockumentary”, it discusses things about the music industry you never even knew!!!! A MUST-SEE!

http://www.youtube.com/my_playlists?p=E1BFD865A08E6C1B&pi=0

A third must-see is the documentary entitled “The Distraction Dilemma” by Christian Berdahl

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki3-VcoEkfY

Many songs are based on African tribal “voodoo beats”. Just think of how many songs today have “repetitive drum beats” in them. And trust me, there’s a REASONING for that!

And have you ever wondered why each “song” has an “introduction” before the lyrics even come about? The meaning of a song’s introduction is to put the listener into a “trance-like state” so that by the time the music starts to play, the listener is already in a “trance” and isn’t fully cognizant of the “meaning behind the music”.

How many of us have liked a song based on the “beat” and the beat, ALONE? Not really being fully aware of the song’s lyrics or what they were about? Plus how many songs have you heard where the lyrics are somewhat “blurred” and hard to figure out? Trust me, there’s a reasoning for all that!

It’s highly believed by some biblical scholars that Satan was the “choir leader” in heaven (before the fall)! From the way the bible describes, it sounds as if he were a walking. talking music “instrument” himself! So then, is it really any wonder that Satan uses modern day music to DESTROY PEOPLE FROM WITHIN?

Just look at any modern day music video by Cyrus, Gaga, Perry, Gomez, etc. and you will see blatant sexuality, dark Satanic themes, and the full-out mocking of Jesus Christ and the bible! Have you EVER seen a music video or rock song mock Joseph Smith, Allah, Buddha, Krishna, etc? Even ONE? And why is that, do you think? On the other hand, just how many rock/popular songs have we seen that have actually MOCKED Jesus Christ and the bible? Too many to count, right?

Which begs of question: what is so darn THREATENING about a LOVING GOD, that loved the world and humanity SO MUCH, that he sent his one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ Almighty, to die on a Roman cross for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins? Because lets face it, Joseph Smith isn’t going to save a person from the eternal flames of God, neither is the Virgin Mary or Krishna or Buddha or Satan himself, for that matter!

Satan KNOWS he can’t just full out come out at us full-speed ahead and ANNOUNCE his presence as in: “hi, I’m Satan and I’m here to deceive you!” He knows he has to be much more “subtle” than that and so MUSIC is the means by which he DOES just that!

Did you know that before a song or album goes out on the market, it is placed on a Satanic altar and has demon spirits conjured INTO the “master copy” of a song and that the demon “spirits” then follow every subsequent “copy” that is made of the song?

Like, sit back and really think about this for awhile. After listening to today’s “popular music”, do you feel CLOSER to God/Jesus Christ or more ALIENATED from God/Jesus Christ? Truly think about it and be honest with yourselves! Because today’s music and today’s “music industry”, in and of itself, was designed by Satan to try to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ and his gospel of salvation!

Even today’s “Christian music” is suspect. It gots what I call the “clap beat” in most of the songs, strong “drumming”, electric guitars, etc. And the lyrics to many of the songs are so “sultry”. I begin to feel as though it’s some woman singing to her “lover”, rather than singing to God/Jesus Christ. I know most of you probably know what I’m talking about, right there.

Not to mention that many of today’s “Christian artists” have actually come out and admitted that they’re not IN it for God/Jesus Christ but are rather in it “for the money”, as the following article demonstrates:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2014/06/19/convicted-singer-of-christian-metal-band-as-i-lay-dying-comes-out-as-an-atheist/

Sadly, this case is not the “outlier”! Many from the “secular music world” have now gone into the “Christian market” since “there’s more money in it” (NO JOKE!)

So please, don’t be deceived! Be VERY, VERY mindful of the “music” you listen to! Even today’s “Christian music”. Even INSTRUMENTAL music (such as “Trance Music”). Satan has MANY, MANY, MANY ways by which to “musically deceive” us. However, it doesn’t mean we have to listen to him! In fact, it’s better to defy modern-day music altogether and just listen to songs like “Greensleeves”, “How he loves us”, “Let them see you in me”, etc.

“Lord Jesus, in your great, heavenly name, I pray that ALL souls who are currently bound to “modern day music” will soon have their souls UN-CHAINED from such “music” and be set free from it! I pray that you will open up their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to the truth about the DAMAGES of modern day music to one’s soul and mind and that you will enlighten them to the TRUTH about today’s modern day “music industry” and how truly evil and Satanic it is! I also pray that you will point such souls towards music that is soul-UPLIFTING, instead of soul-DAMNING! Please use YOUR own heavenly music and song to draw them closer TO you, Lord, instead of farther away from you! Please don’t allow Satan to musically deceive them, anymore! Amen”.
