RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART TWO

As the field of artificial intelligence is taking off at breakneck speed, and as there’s been much talk lately of “the real-life Skynet” possibly coming about in today’s world, [please remember that Skynet was the company that produced The Terminator in the Terminator movies with ARNOLD S.], I’m now kind’ve wondering rather or not it’s possible that Revelation 13:15 could actually be REFERRING to such an outcome….as in, the ULTIMATE “terminator of terminators”, who’s created by the Antichrist but who is indwelt by Satan himself. (When I was reading a portion of Revelation 13 the other day, that’s what IMMEDIATELY came to my mind).

For Revelation 13:15 says that the Antichrist will “create an image to the beast”. That, to me, sounds like some sort of “Skynet-esque” type creation. And then, the verse further goes on to say that the Antichrist will “give life to the image”, so that it will speak. Does that NOT sound like the field of robotics/artificial intelligence to YOU? Because we know that the Antichrist can’t make a NATURAL CREATION. Therefore, he has to make an ARTIFICIAL ONE. And then the verse further goes on to say: “and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. And THAT, to me, sounds like the “Terminator of all Terminators”.

In fact, I kind’ve envision it (the Revelation 13:15 outcome) as a human-like Android, but with “god-like” super-human strength. I DON’T think it’ll be a simple “hologram/holographic” like image since we already have those and they’re “no big deal”. We also already have “speaking Androids” (which are freaky, btw but STILL very “basic” at this point). But this particular “image”, I think, will have to be something EXCEPTIONAL…….something that’s possibly never been seen before by mankind……hence, its “allure”.

So perhaps it’ll be the MOST human-like Android EVER….Or it could just be some sort of speaking statue made of gold. All WE know from the bible is that the “image will SPEAK” and be very life-like! And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, the Antichrist will probably make the image look somewhat like Jesus or a “prophet”. So just imagine this for a second, folks! Just imagine a human-like Android walking the Earth in the VISUAL FORM of Jesus that preaches to people an UNBIBLICAL GOSPEL!

(And if it’s not an Android-ish Skynet-ish type thing, then perhaps it’ll be a “walking, talking golden statue of Jesus” that the Antichrist will “bring to life” in order to deceive many into thinking it’s the “biblical Jesus” when it’s NOT! OR….it could be a moving “Android” of the “Virgin Mary”, etc! DON’T BE DECEIVED, FOLKS!) 

Anyways, just some spiritual food for thought. I’m not saying that every other Christian out there has to agree with my interpretation but I was just pondering all this the other day as I started to think more deeply about artificial intelligence and its long-term “spiritual implications” upon mankind.

Revelation 13:16-17 further goes on to say: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [And in the bible, the word “man” means MANKIND, so that would include women & children as well].

So we know THREE things are gonna happen when the Antichrist comes on the scene. 1) He will create an “image” of the beast (which is Satan). And 2) He will give “life” to the image and make it “speak” and also that 3) ALL who refuse to worship the “image of the beast” or the “number of his name” will be KILLED.

So what can we gather from this? If we put two and two together, it would most certainly seem like taking the MARK of the beast and worshiping the LIVING IMAGE (Android?/Terminator-like thing?) of the beast are one and the same. For worshiping the “living/speaking image of the beast” seems to require taking his “Mark” at the same exact time.

But also at the same time, it’s also an ECONOMIC thing, for NO person on the Earth will be able to buy or sell without this “Mark”. And the book of Revelation warns that WHOMEVER takes this “Mark” will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY!

But one thing’s for certain: robots/artificial intelligence will DEFINITELY become smarter than humans someday, no doubt about it. The only question is, WHEN? Elon Musk’s solution is for us to “merge” with machines. Steven Hawking’s solution is for mankind to “attempt” to inhabit the cosmos. But Elon Musk’s idea chills me to the core when I think more in depthly about the Mark of the Beast and/or the image of the beast. As for Mr. Hawking’s idea? No matter WHERE you go or WHAT you do in the universe, you CAN’T run away from Jesus Christ, for he hails from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING! From every single corner of the cosmos to the depths of the sea!

[As a side note, the bible says that the BIBLICAL Jesus is going to return to Earth from the clouds of heaven. So I DO think it’s highly possible that HAARP/Project Bluebeam will try to create a “false Jesus hologram in the clouds of the sky”, in order to try to deceive many! So….how can we distinguish between a so-called fake Jesus “‘hologram” in the sky and the REAL Jesus? The REAL Jesus will rapture up all his Christian saints! Therefore, if an “image” of Jesus is just sitting there in the clouds of they sky and NOT doing anything (i.e. NOT rapturing UP Christian saints into the clouds), you can pretty much KNOW it’s a false, hologramized “image” of Jesus!] 

Nevertheless, I was ALSO wondering the other day if any other Christians out there thought there might be a possible link between Revelation 13:15 and artificial intelligence. It’s certainly interesting to think about, especially in these here End Times that we’re currently living in. And the more I learn about artificial intelligence, the more I don’t like it and see it as a very “dark”, spiritual thing. It (A.I.) is no doubt being promoted in today’s world as a “good thing” (the “family-friend robot”, the “companion robot”, the “assistant robot”, etc.) but believe me, it’s not as “good” as it seems! There is a MUCH darker spiritual picture to the story here, folks!

They’ve now started to create the concept of “bionic insects and animals”, “sex robots”, etc! So then it’s like, okay, WHERE do they draw the line? When is too far, TOO far? Because for THEM, there likely IS no “too far!” It’s almost like some of the elite A.I. scientists of today are saying to themselves AND to the world: “No God, we can do better”. It’s quite chilling, actually.

In the following video, Pastor Billy Crone gives an excellent presentation of the LONG-TERM DANGERS OF A.I./RISE OF THE MACHINES:

The BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS Of The Total Solar Eclipse

Seems everybody and their grandmother is excited for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE about to happen on Monday, August 21, 2017! There’s gonna be many parties, music, food, etc.! Plus there’s gonna be SO MANY AMERICANS gathered AT the “path of totality” that I’m almost beginning wonder if any possible “terrorist attacks” might happen along the path of totality, etc.

But THAT thought aside, what are the BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of such an event? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” – Luke 21:25-26

 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; AND LET THEM BE FOR **SIGNS**, and for seasons, and for days, and years” – Genesis 1:14

Translation? God created the sun, moon and stars…..not ONLY to divide night from day but FOR SIGNS, etc.

Matthew 16:4 states: “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas {Jonah}. And he left them, and departed”

So what IS the “SIGN OF JONAH?”, some people may be wondering. For those not familiar with the prophet Jonah, Jonah was a prophet during the times of the Old Testament. And Nineveh was considered to be one of the bible’s most sinful cities (more sinful than Sodom & Gomorrah? I’m not sure but pretty sinful, from the bible’s description of it).

And the Lord sent Jonah to preach there, to WARN the people of the city of Nineveh to REPENT of their sins, before it was too late and their city was doomed to DESTRUCTION! And Jonah VERY RELUCTANTLY went there to preach. And many bible scholars believe that a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE happened at Nineveh (in order to convince the people to Nineveh to repent, which they DID!)

Here, down below, the following two videos give more detailed BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017!

And what’s REALLY prophetically interesting is that YEAR YEARS LATER, ANOTHER total solar eclipse will pass THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, thus making a big “X” over America, as the following image demonstrates:

X OVER AMERICA

Furthermore, what’s REALLY INTERESTING is that the very “center” of the X is in the bulls-eye of THE NEW MADRID FAULT ZONE and is also where the Mississippi and Ohio rivers CONVERGE! That should tell us something, folks!

Joel 3:2 in the Old Testament even hints at the fact that GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH ANY NATION THAT DIVIDES/TRIES TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF JERUSALEM:

“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land“.

So……..exactly WHAT is the Lord trying to TELL US by the SIGNS of the TWO solar eclipses within the period of 7 YEARS (“7” being a VERY PROPHETIC number) and with the REVELATION 12 SIGN (September 23, 2017?), which is just 33 days later (“33” ALSO being a VERY BIBLICALLY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER – Jesus was 33 when he was crucified on the cross, etc.!)

It’s a WARNING to us to REPENT because THE SOON-COMING DAY OF THE LORD WILL SHORTLY BE AT HAND! And contrary to what most people believe, the “day of the Lord” is NOT the Rapture! Instead, is a day of GREAT WRATH!

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is **A DAY OF WRATH**, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towersAnd I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord‘s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land

Zephaniah 1:14-18

In fact, in Luke 21:7 [New Testament, Book of Luke, Chapter 21, Verse 7], and in Matthew 24:3 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24, Verse 3], the disciples privately came to Jesus (immediately AFTER the “Sermon on the Mount” – which took place in Matthew, chapters 5 to 7)) with a question about the END TIMES and the signs of Jesus’s SOON RETURN (UPON THE EARTH):

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” – Matthew 24:7

 

And the next SEVERAL verses of Matthew 24, Jesus says the following:

 

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

 

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

 

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 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”

 

[[[When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 

 

And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE“]]].

 

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”

 

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together”

 

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shakenAnd then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together HIS ELECT from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other”

 

In other words, THE ELECT means those people that not only BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ but that OBEY HIM in any and all things! Therefore, THE ELECT (the true, OBEDIENT servants of Jesus Christ) will be taken from the Earth during THE RAPTURE while all the DISOBEDIENT SOULS – including all the LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS – will be left behind to deal with GOD’S WRATH UPON THE ENTIRE EARTH! Jesus further goes on in the chapter to state the following in verses 32-51 of Matthew 24:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.:

 

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

 

But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

 

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: THERE SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH“.

 

Translation? Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to Salvation and the ONLY WAY to Eternal Life! Anything OUTSIDE of Jesus Christ (including Atheism/Agnosticism) is a LIE that will send an unrepentant person to the LAKE OF FIRE! (“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15)

So in other words, many people will go to see this “eclipse”, think it’s “just coincidence” and not GIVE a care about its ETERNAL BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS! And so, BECAUSE they don’t care and/or see the BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE of End Times events & “celestial signs” (eclipses, etc.), they will not REPENT OF THEIR SINS and/or see a NEED to be “saved from their sins” and thus, NOT be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and THUS, WILL someday be thrown into the Lake of Fire! A place that Jesus describes as ETERNAL TORMENT (“weeping and gnashing of teeth”). Gnashing of teeth means that a person’s in SO much pain, that they start GRINDING THEIR TEETH IN SHEER PAIN/TERROR!

But folks: one thing’s for sure! GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICAN, HAS **BEEN** ON AMERICA FOR QUITE SOME TIME AND WILL **CONTINUE** TO STAY ON AMERICA UNTIL SHE REPENTS OF HER DEEDS! But alas, the nation of America will NOT repent of its deeds (transgender men invading girls/womens’ facilities and/or womens’ sports, gay marriage, gay adoption, strip clubs, drinking, homosexuality/promiscuity, abortion, gambling, the drug trade, etc.)

And so BECAUSE America won’t repent of her deeds, America shall be DESTROYED! In fact, America’s SPIRITUAL STATE right now reminds me of “The Queen of Revelation 18:7:

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow

 

Thnk about it, folks! America is likely THE MOST ARROGANT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! She thinks she is the largest, strongest, fastest, most prosperous, most powerful & resilient country in the world! But alas…….the Lord’s Wrath is now upon her! And she, as a nation, is readying herself for A GREAT BIBLICAL FALL! 

So where is your heart today, folks? Is it with Jesus Christ & righteousness? If not, WHY? And is 5 minutes of pleasure worth an eternity in hell/the lake of fire? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! 

There’s no doubt in my mind that America WILL fall……it’s just a matter of HOW and WHEN! We’re lucky that the Lord loves us all enough to give us ONE LAST SIGN before his FULL WRATH begins! The total solar eclipse is a sign of his wrath……….a sign of his soon return to the Earth……..a sign to REPENT of all our sins…….and a sign that we had BETTER get all our houses in order!!!!!!!!!! There’s not much time left, folks! We’re living in the last SECONDS to MILI-SECONDS of human history!!!!!! 

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, ‘REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!” – Matthew 4:17

 

And lastly, the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE also means, prophetically and biblically, that THE SOUL OF AMERICA (as a WHOLE) has a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART OVER JESUS AND HIS WORDS! Meaning, America (as a whole) and even many Americans (as a whole), now have A HEART THAT’S TOTALLY CLOSED OFF FROM JESUS! [Side-note: Is Bonnie Raitt’s 80-90’s song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” making pre-prophetic FUN of that fact?]. And so that’s WHY the Lord’s using the BIBLICAL SIGN of a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE…..in order to visually show the fact that our hearts (as a whole) have become BLACK AND HARDENED towards Jesus and FULL OF TOTAL DARKNESS!  

Therefore, REPENT! Before it’s too late for you! Because remember that the door to Salvation is CLOSING……..in fact, it’s ECLIPSING! JESUS’S PATIENCE TOWARDS SALVATION FOR MANKIND IS NOW *ECLIPSING!* And once the door to Salvation CLOSES, it closes PERMANENTLY! Please remember that IN the days of Noah, people were eating, drinking and being merry and being “unaware” until the flood came and took them all away! So it is with TODAY’S GENERATION! People are SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND UNAWARE! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Problems With Fertility? Jesus Is Your Answer!

Many married couples long for children. And with all the highly processed food and chemical compounds/additives that is being placed in food, beverage and water supplies these days, it’s really NO WONDER that “fertility” (both in men AND in women) has taken a severe hit the last few several years.

Many married heterosexual couples might feel sad, depressed, hopeless……..as though they’re one of the ONLY ONES going through the “infertility struggle”. But guess what, those who struggle with infertility? I got some good news for you! Did you know first of all that there are OTHERS out there, just like you, who either went through (or are currently going through the same thing?) You’re NOT alone!

In fact, even during the times of the BIBLE, there were many married couples who struggled with the issue of fertility. And back in THOSE days, being married and having kids (and thus, starting a “traditional family”) was the end all, be all, EVEN MORE SO than TODAY’S TIMES…..And just imagine the INTENSE pressure those poor biblical folks must’ve felt when they couldn’t have children. Yet, nearly ALL of them had ONE thing in common: they ALL had faith in God and his divine power for MIRACLES! And BECAUSE they had strong faith and BELIEVED in NATURAL PROCREATION MIRACLES, they also RECEIVED! 🙂

In fact, let us turn to the bible to discuss these seemingly infertile (or partially infertile) couples in more detail……

Old Testament:

1). HANNAH – Hannah was “barren” and like Sarah, was “constantly tormented” by Elkanah’s 2nd “fertile” wife, Peninnah, since Hannah had no children. Hannah’s husband, Elkanah, even lamented to her in 1 Samuel: 1-8 Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?“. However, Hannah goes up to the Temple to pray for a child and a Levite priest at the temple blesses her & prays that the Lord will “grant her her petition” and that’s exactly what happened. And thus, the PROPHET SAMUEL was born!

2). SARAH – As stunningly “beautiful” as Sarah was, she was barren. And like Hannah, was “constantly tormented” by what had become Abraham’s 2nd wife, Hagar, the “fertile” Egyptian. Genesis 15:2-3 shows us Sarah’s husband, Abraham, grieving over having no heir: And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir“. But in Genesis 21:1-8, Sarah conceived and bore ISAAC! 

3). REBEKAH – Rebekah, the bible records, was stunningly beautiful but “barren”. Genesis 25:21 states: “And Isaac intreated [that means prayed to] the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated [prayed to] of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived”. Rebekah bore the biblical twins ESAU & JACOB!

4). RACHEL – Like Sarah & Rebekah, Rachel, the bible records, was ALSO stunningly beautiful………but also barren. She was also the *favorite wife* of Jacob. When the Lord originally saw that Rachel’s sister Leah was unloved, he opened Leah’s womb (while closing up Rachel’s – atleast for that time being) and Leah bore SIX SONS + A DAUGHTER! However, Rachel then became EXTREMELY jealous of her sister Leah & then demanded that Jacob give HER children, also!

Genesis 30:1-2 records the following: And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die!” And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

Genesis 30:22-24 then states, And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach: And she called his name Joseph; and said, The Lord shall add to me another son”. And she thus gave birth to JOSEPH & then later, to BENJAMIN! 

5). JOCHEBED – She married her own NEPHEW in the Old Testament (BEFORE it was forbidden for aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews to marry). So this, to ME anyways, suggest that she was slightly older in age than her nephew, Amram. Which would ALSO likely mean that she likely conceived pass the typical biblical child-bearing age to birth MOSES, AARON & MIRIAM!

6). MONOAH’S WIFE in Judges 13: 2-3 which says, “And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son”. 

Judges 13:24-25 then records: And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the Lord blessed him. And the Spirit of the Lord began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol”. 

She was the one who gave birth to the long-haired, exceptionally-strengthed SAMSON!

New Testament:

7). ELIZABETH – The SAME exact Holy Spirit that conceived a son in Mary (a virgin) was the same exact Holy Spirit that allowed Elizabeth to “conceive in her old age”. The archangel Gabriel informed Mary of this in Luke 1:36 when he stated, And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren“. Elizabeth ended up bearing JOHN THE BAPTIST!

So conclusion? It is MUCH, MUCH better to “wait on God/Jesus” than to PREMATURELY take matters into one’s own hands, as both Rachel & Sarah had witnessed! (Note:”Rachel’s son by her handmaiden, Dan, later became the father of a “condemned” tribe of Israel while Sarah’s son by her slave, Hagar, later went on to CRUELLY mock Sarah & Isaac when Isaac was a baby, etc!)

And besides: Jesus is a GOD OF MIRACLES! Therefore, if he could provide ancient biblical infertile women with children, then doesn’t it stand to reason that He could ALSO theoretically provide NATURAL CHILDREN for TODAY’S infertile women? 🙂

Matthew 8:26 states: “And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm”. 

TRANSLATION? HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE AND THE HEAVENS WITH JUST THE MERE SOUND OF HIS VOICE! HE CLOSED THE MOUTHS OF LIONS AND *PARTED* THE RED SEA! NOT TO MENTION HE WAS EVEN ABLE TO **COMMAND THE SEA!** Therefore folks, if he can do all THAT, he’s MOST CERTAINLY not gonna scratch his head in confusion as to how to make an infertile couple FERTILE. He did during the times in the bible many times, and I have a very strong feeling he’ll do it even in TODAY’S TIMES. 

However, on a FINAL, MOST IMPORTANT NOTE IS one thing I need to mention, here. And again, I’m not trying to scare any of ya’ll, so bare with me, here. But we ARE now living in the End times, folks! Make no mistakes about it! And so what YOU infertile peoples may initially see as a downfall (that is, infertility, in and of itself) could actually now prove to be a BLESSING in disguise……You won’t have to worry about how to hide your children from the Anti-Christ beast system authorities if you HAVE no children to hide from them to begin with, correct? 

But then again, IF it’s Jesus’s will for you to have children with your spouse, you WILL have children with your spouse……..the NATURAL WAY……….there’s no need to PUSH the issue, here. And IF that be the case, Jesus Christ WILL provide ways for you to protect your children from the Anti-Christ beast system authorities as long as possible. However, if you find that you can NEVER have children the natural way, even AFTER praying to Jesus about it numerous times, then you need to find peace with that and find a way to SPREAD THE GOSPEL IN THESE HERE END-TIMES (ESPECIALLY ABOUT THE END TIMES AND THE SOON COMING MARK OF THE BEAST SYSTEM ABOUT TO FALL ON THE WORLD!) Without children to distract you, you’ll be more focused.

And in closing, let me just say THIS: EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS IN JESUS’S SITE! DO NO ABORT YOUR CHILD, NO MATTER WHAT! EVERY LIFE IS A **GIFT** FROM GOD! SO REMEMBER THAT! Also remember that to DIE **for** Christ (a death of martyrdom for Christ) is GAIN. But to try to HANG ON to one’s life means to LOSE IT (your life, that is) ETERNALLY. So remember that, folks! 

Matthew 16: 24-26 states the following: Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

 

 

 

 

Are You A Christian? If So, You’re On Trial!

“Christians” are sure getting a bad rep these days! It would rather seem as though (according to popular culture) that Christians are all old, outdated, boring, dull, “bigots” who just can’t seem to do ANYTHING right!

But behind the scenes looms a MUCH bigger picture, Christians, and that’s THIS: We’re ALL “On Trial!” Now…..what exactly do I mean by that, you might ask? The bible says that ALL those who TRULY wish to follow Christ WILL BE TESTED/PUT TO THE TEST! (Which puts a WHOLE new meaning to the popular saying,”Trial by Fire!”). 

So essentially, it’s like being in a spiritual courtroom of sorts. The non-Christian believer wants to TEST US and to try to see just how much of a TRUE Christian we actually are! They – along with Satan & his demons – are acting as impromptu “spiritual prosecutors” against us. And oddly enough, the MORE of a true Christian we are/prove ourselves to be, the MORE that Satan/his demons/adamant non-Christian believers tend to resent/hate us!

Why? Because they got the spirit of Antichrist on them. Please remember that ALL those who are ADAMANTLY AGAINST Christ currently HAVE the spirit of Antichrist on them, rather they realize it or not! (Agnostics, on the other hand, are ONE step closer to finding the Eternal Truth of Jesus Christ and Satan HATES THAT!)

In fact, 1 Peter 5: 8-9 in The New Testament says the following: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”

Translation? Satan’s CONSTANTLY looking for Christians whom he can make FAIL in some way, shape or form……..even better (in HIS mind, anyways) if he can make them PERMANENTLY FALL FROM GRACE! But he can’t do it alone, folks! That’s WHY he needs the help of his various DEMONS, working underneath him! And these demons are put there in our lives to try to “tempt us” and to try to rob us of our personal joy & salvation that can ONLY be found in the BIBLICAL Christ Jesus! 

And folks, I’m gonna tell you something. As Christians, we’re CONSTANTLY on trial, while living down on this Earth. And it’s NEVER-ENDING……(until we take our last breath, that is). We’re on trial, not ONLY by Satan and his demons (and even BY the Lord Jesus Christ himself, who’s attempting in these last days to weed out the spiritual wheat from the tares) but also by various non-believers/those of other religions, all around us……….

Do we cuss? Drink alot? Smoke weed/hash? Gamble? Go to strip clubs? Watch alot of R-rated movies? Hold a grudge against someone/group of people? Lie to get our way? Manipulate to get our way? Get angry at the slightest thing? Show up late to work? Constantly gossip and/or complain about the boss?

Acquiesce (that means, reluctantly give into but NOT reject) on the concept of “abortion”, “pre-marital sex”, the “gay agenda”, etc? Do we hate our enemies and refuse to forgive those who hurt us? Do we flick people off in traffic if someone cuts us off or REFUSE to let someone IN to traffic when they’re making a turn or there’s construction? Etc? Etc? 

Folks, the truth is, we’re CONSTANTLY being watched & monitored (in a proverbial sense) by all the non-believers in our lives (friends, family members, coworkers, complete strangers on online message boards/Youtube/Facebook/in person, etc.)

And if WE CHRISTIANS (as a collective whole) are participating in ANY willfully sinful activities (and it doesn’t even matter WHAT the willful sinful activity IS), just what type of “message” does that send to all the non-believers/those of other religions out there? They either believe one or two things: That Christianity’s a farce (“If YOU don’t even believe enough in your own religion to faithfully follow it, then why should *I*? OR that WE as Christians (or that Jesus Christ AS Christ) are WEAK!) 

Because if they can get YOU – the true, biblical-roots Christian – to DEFY the biblical Jewish Jesus Christ and/or the bible and its “commands” in ANY type of way – they think they’ve won and that YOU – the true, biblical-roots Christian – are WEAK, folks! In fact, just look at how the LGBT Activist folks has OVERTAKEN the Christian churches of today, as well as education, pop culture AND public policy!

They’ve think they’ve WON, folks! They really, truly do! Plus they ALSO think that WE CHRISTIANS are…..WEAK (as a whole) and FAR outnumbered! Satan has these poor folks SO DECEIVED that it’s not even funny, anymore! 

But folks, we got to think about what types of “messages” we’re sending to the people around us in our lives, on a daily basis. Because if WE are not FULLY living for Christ, they will reason within themselves, then why should THEY? AS Christians, we’re expected to be the “salt and light of the world!” 

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” – [Matthew 5: 13-16]

Believe it or not, the Lord Jesus Christ WANTS to use YOU to witness to all of THEM (all the non-believers and those of other religions) in your life. Therefore, they’re CONSTANTLY gonna be asking you about/trying to SEE for themselves what types of TV shows you watch, what movies you see, what music you listen to, what types of things you do in your free time, what types of things you post on Facebook, what types of things you say when you’re upset, etc. 

Because in a sense, THEY want to know what it is exactly that sets you apart from them. THEY want to know what being a Christian is vs. NOT being a Christian is. And so, when they look around and see many “worldly” Christian churches (AND Christians) supporting such things such as homosexuality and abortion, it sends a message that the “Christian” and non-Christian “aren’t so different, afterall” and thus, for THEM, in their minds, the NEED for a Saviour becomes “convoluted” and “inactive”. 

Parents, your children are CONSTANTLY watching you (rather you realize it or not). So be sure to set some good, Christian examples! Christian employees? Again, all your non-Christian coworkers are silently taking note of your every action at work (rather you realize it or not). They’re CONSTANTLY looking for things like: Ah-ha! He/she lied about being late to work! He/she’s no Christian! He/she’s no better than I! Therefore, I shouldn’t have to change MY life at all since there’s really no difference between him/her and I! and/or “Wow! He/she never smiles and always looks depressed and SERIOUS all the time, therefore, it MUST not pay to serve Jesus at all! Therefore, why should I?”

Do you SEE where I’m going with this, folks? We’re CONSTANTLY on trial with non-believers and those of other religions. CONSTANTLY. In line at Walmart/Best Buy/Baskin Robbins/the airport/etc. In traffic. At home, work or school. On an airplane. On websites and/or social media. In print (if a published author/reporter/blogger). At social events/protests. At the mall or movie theater. At the hospital/doctor’s/dentist’s office. In museums/national parks/tourist destinations. At social gatherings. Inside restaurants or fast-food joints. In public. At family functions. There’s just NO getting around it, folks! 

Oddly enough, it is Jesus’s, Satan’s, the demons AND the non-Christian believers way of testing us to see how truly “authentic” of a Christian we are. And WHEN a non-Christian believer DOES come across an “authentic” Christian, it sends a POWERFUL MESSAGE about just what a true Christian IS and what a true Christian ISN’T! (And even serves to drawl them closer & closer the Eternal Truth, which can ONLY be found in Jesus Christ, ofcourse!)

However though, like I said, the more truly AUTHENTIC of a Christian a person proves themselves to be, THE PROUDER & PROUDER JESUS CHRIST & HIS ANGELS IN HEAVEN GET and THE ANGRIER & ANGRIER that Satan and his demons get! Why? The answer can be found in Revelation 12:12 in the New Testament: 

“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” – [Revelation 12:12]

Translation? Satan’s angry and knows he has but a SHORT TIME to try to deceive AS MANY Christians (as well as non-Christians) as possible before Jesus’s soon 2nd arrival upon the Earth!

Likewise, MANY Christians, at the VERY first sign of “trouble”, “conflict”, “drama” or “trial/tribulation” get all panicked and freaked out about it and aren’t sure what to do! But HERE is what the bible says about that:

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” – [1 Peter 4: 12-13]

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 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: 10-12]

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

But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father alsoIf I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause” – [John 15: 18-25]

And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say” – [Luke 12: 11-12]

Therefore, I say this in conclusion: As a “Christian”, what types of messages are YOU sending to all the non-Christian believers in your life? Are YOU truly living for and representing Christ? ARE you a true ambassador for Him, the one and ONLY true God, maker of the heavens and the Earth? How do YOU know FOR 100% SURE? If Jesus were to arrive in the room right now (for example), would he praise or condemn your actions of the past week? Why? 

Let us look lastly at what the “Fruits of the Spirit” are (the HOLY SPIRIT, that is). According to Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”

Therefore, do we love others as ourselves? Do have inner peace and joy? Do we have what it takes to OVERCOME/become a longsufferer? Are we gentle & kind? Do we have FAITH (TRUE ABRAHAMIC-LIKE FAITH) in Jesus where, for example, if we knew the world economy crashed tomorrow, that we’d have the faith that Jesus would somehow see us through, etc.? And do we have FAITH in His Written Word from Genesis to Revelation? And are we MEEK and humble (as in, “I’m just ONE person, one person of MANY, I am NOTHING without Christ?”) 

Although I’ll have to admit I’m not really sure here what is meant by “goodness” and “temperance”. I THINK temperance means the ability to “maintain our temper” and remain calm in any and all situations but I could be wrong. As for goodness? It likely means the PURSUIT of things that the BIBLE/JESUS calls “good” (the fight for Pro-Life, the fight for Pro-bible, Pro-Traditional Marriage/Family, etc.)

But folks, one thing’s for sure. We CAN’T let our guards down at ANY PRICE! Cause like I said, we Christians are ALL ON TRIAL at ALL TIMES in our lives, at ANY given day, place or time. So let us all try to let Christ live THROUGH US to the best of our knowledge and ability and try to get the most “spiritual growth(s)” out of our own personal trials & tribulations as we possibly can!

Cause ya never know……YOUR successfully coming out of a “trial” in your life (be it great or small) may just be the ONE very thing that turns a non-Christian believer INTO a believer! So remember that, folks! Set good examples (both for yourselves AND for others) and DON’T back down on the gospel at ANY PRICE! And may the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL during these here End Times! AMEN! 

What Satan Doesn’t Want You Knowing About Abortion, LGBT, Etc.

America was founded upon the notions called “life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness”. Satan’s fall was founded upon the notions of pride, greed, envy, anger & deceit. In the year 2017, pretty much all of these concepts were put into the melting pot called “Modern-Day Christianity”. And many people are none the wiser. Why? Answer: Because Satan successfully mixes truth WITH lies. 

Let us look at a few examples, here:

  1. The “Sunday Sabbath”/”Jesus Rose On Sunday”
  2. Abortion/Women’s Rights
  3. LGBT/Human Rights
  4. Transgenderism/Human Rights

Okay, lets now take a deeper look at #1, The “Sunday Sabbath”. Back in ancient times, the Roman Emperor Constantine, along with the help of “Catholic bishops”, proclaimed Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. 

“What’s so wrong with THAT?” someone may protest. “That sounds nice…..that sounds like Constantine was trying to PROTECT Christians from persecution”.

But lets unpack this a bit….there were many, many “Pagans” living in the Roman Empire at that time. And the Roman Catholic Church (and Constantine) wanted to control as many of the Roman “populace” as possible. So how do that? Answer: Through religion. 

But the Pagans didn’t LIKE many of the BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICES……so Constantine had to “appeal” to the Pagans. And the ONLY way he could do that was by PAGANIZING CHRISTIANITY, and that’s exactly what he did (with the help of the Catholic bishops, ofcourse). 

So essentially, what Constantine did was spread a FALSE, PAGANIZED *FORM* of Christianity that had no true, biblical merits. Why? Because he (along with the help of the Catholic bishops) CHANGED THE SABBATH, from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday to Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!

(And interestingly enough, if you look around the Catholic Church today in the Vatican, you will see ALL SORTS of remnants of “sun worship” – in fact, the “halos” you see around “Catholic saints” are supposed to represent SUN HALOS/SUNS!) 

That was the start of it. But he didn’t stop THERE. No……He took it even a step FURTHER. He OUTLAWED fasting, Biblical Feasts, and ABSTAINING from work on Saturday, the TRUE SABBATH. He OUTLAWED biblical feasts by calling them “Jewish feasts”. And then, sometime later on, the false/Paganized holidays of “Christmas” and “Easter” were celebrated, which actually came from ANCIENT PAGAN SEX FESTIVALS (Saturnalia of Christmas, and Feast of Ishtar, fertility “goddess” of Easter).

Because do you REALLY think Satan would’ve let the Roman Catholic Church (key word being ROMAN) stand if it were REALLY, TRULY following the bible? Think about it, folks! The ONLY reason Satan’s left the Roman Catholic Church alone and let it PROSPER beyond anything imaginable that this Earth’s ever seen is because it, the Roman Catholic Church, is NOT following the bible (atleast, they’re not following the Jesus Christ of the BIBLE, anyways……..but another “Jesus“, altogether……..)

And over time, the Roman Catholic Church has gained such WIDE, global influence to the point that even many NON-BELIEVERS, sadly, consider The Catholic Church/Pope/Vatican to be THE PREMIER AUTHORITY on Christianity! “Well, the Catholic Church has made alot of contributions to history, such as the first printing of the bible in the English language, etc.”

See how Satan works, folks? See how he mixes truth with lies? He’ll allow Christians to go to church every week because they (as a whole) are going to church on the WRONG DAY/WRONG SABBATH (Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!) Just like he’ll allow Christians to be Christians since they celebrate in the FALSE/PAGANIZED HOLIDAYS OF CHRISTMAS & EASTER!

(Plus, have you ever noticed how these two holidays actually MOCK Jesus Christ by equating him with “Santa Claus” and the “Easter bunny? Tell me what those things have to do with Christ! Anything? Didn’t think so!!!!!)

We know from the bible that God worked for SIX DAYS, then rested on, CONSECRATED and SANCTIFIED the 7th day of the week, SATURDAY, as HIS HOLY 7TH DAY SABBATH. So for MORTAL MAN to come along and CHANGE IT? It’s like saying that God made a mistake when he made the 7th Day Sabbath! THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

And when people starting waking up to that fact, Satan started a “Resurrection Sunday” Movement. Have you ever noticed that, folks? Pastors preaching that “Jesus rose on Sunday morning”. But if you read the bible between the lines, it’s clearly apparent that Jesus rose at the END of Saturday evening and was ALREADY RISEN by EARLY Sunday morning, he didn’t rise DURING Sunday morning. So the “Resurrection Sunday” thing is CLEARLY A LIE!

Now lets go to example #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. It really all started in the 60’s, during the “Free Love/Hippy Movement’. That’s what really got all this “dire feminism” thing started. And WHO do you think is behind the Hippy Movement? Any guesses, folks? It sure as heck wasn’t Jesus Christ of the bible that started it! (And P.S.: did you know that the Peace Sign is actually supposed to be a MOCKING of Christ?) 

“We don’t have to listen to authority, we don’t have to answer to anybody, we have free will, we can do whatever the heck we want”. My, my, my, one would rather think that it was a “fallen angel rally”, not any type of “human rally”, am I right? Don’t those sentiments echo almost exactly what the fallen angels likely said to themselves/amongst themselves when they thought they no longer had to follow God as the Head Authority? Think about it, folks!

And out of “hippy-ism” sprang FEMINISM. Basically, this “Movement” ATTACKED Jesus Christ, ATTACKED THE BIBLE, ATTACKED the Traditional Family, ATTACKED traditional gender role models and “worshiped the woman”. At first, women were fighting for the right to ENTER into the workforce. And then, they wanted the right to NOT have to have a baby. That’s where the “Abortion fight” came in.

“I’m not ready for a baby yet, or right now”. Whatever happened to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? Does THAT not matter, anymore? Whenever a woman protests: “my body, my choice”, she instead is essentially saying: “I want the right to have unprotected sex with no biological consequences”. 

True, some women are raped and that’s a horrible, horrible thing. But the baby itself didn’t rape them. Why is their life more important than the baby’s life? Can they REALLY imagine the baby within their wombs saying: “Please kill me mommy, I don’t WANT to live?” 

Oddly enough, long-time research shows that women that kept and raised their babies born out of rape were much, much better off psychologically and emotionally, rather than those raped women who chose to abort. Abortion is something that stays with you for YEARS afterwards (in your mind, heart, body and spirit) and there’s no escaping it! Not to mention that many raped women say that keeping & raising their babies actually HEALED THEM, psychologically! Who ever would’ve thought?

But the truth is, abortion does NOT make a pregnant woman unpregnant but rather, the mother of a dead baby. And I don’t exactly see women dancing in the streets and being all high and emotionally pumped up and JOYFULLY HAPPY after having an abortion. So I can only guess that abortion is NOT so liberating to women, as the “Feminist Movement” claims. 

But Satan is like that high-payed lawyer that tries to LURE women into the sin of murder: some women hear that small still voice that says: “Hey, YOU – the woman – should have rights, TOO! You shouldn’t HAVE to have a kid if you’re not ready to!” But tell me. If people were in the streets protesting: “I should have the right to murder”, other people would go BALLISTIC and have those people arrested for “incitement”, etc. Yet sadly, in today’s world, when women march in protest for the right to MURDER THEIR BABIES, the world even doesn’t blink an eye & turns the other way. 

And during an abortion, the baby’s heart stops and they are pulled from the womb, LIMB BY LIMB, with forceps! What if someone were to pull today’s modern women or men apart, LIMB BY LIMB and then try to say it was their “right” to do so? What a sick, murderous, degenerate nation we live in today, folks! A woman’s right to sin is more important than the life of her baby! 

Even women that are MARRIED are no exception. Some of them want their abortions, TOO! And for WHAT? Their lives are more important than their baby’s life BECAUSE….?? The point I’m trying to make here is that MURDER should NEVER, EVER be a “right” in this country – for ANY REASON – and yet, sadly, it is (in the case of Abortion and Euthania!) 

Abortion is NOT about “Women’s Rights”, it’s about TWO things and TWO things, ONLY: killing and $$$$$$$ profits! 

The bond that a mother has with her unborn child is one of THE MOST precious bonds in existence! So for any one person, name or organization to come along and try to DESTROY that bond and to do so for $$$$ profit?!!!!! Those are the TRUE PEOPLE who are “Anti-Woman”, and “Anti-Woman’s Rights”.

Planned Parenthood even “complains” about “Birthright Centers”, places that help women RAISE their babies and find necessary resources for doing so! It’s not enough that they’re ALREADY killing babies for $$$ profit! It would rather seem that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want ANY babies born, PERIOD! They apparently HATE life! That’s because Jesus Christ IS life! And he’s the Maker & Giver of it! We were all made in God’s holy image; male and female!

Now lets move on to #’s 3 and 4, LGBT/Transgenderism/Human Rights. It’s really no different than #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. Human rights. Sounds good on the surface, doesn’t it? But what is it REALLY ABOUT, underneath all the “media propaganda” layers? Lets have a look.

The whole point of the LGBT Pride Parades and/or Transgenderism Movement (correct me if I’m wrong) is to convince the outside world that what they’re doing is “normal”. Because hey, if it’s “normal”, then it should (theoretically) be a “human right”, correct?

Only, the thing is, it’s NOT “normal” (not according to the bible AND not according to many psychologists). In fact, back in the 70’s, the Diagnostic Manual described “homosexuality/transgenderism” as “abnormal/mental illness”. And what’s interesting to note here is that the psychologists behind the manual weren’t even particularly religious, from what I note. And so nobody can make the argument that these psychologists were “religious” per say or that they were “just acting with the times”. They saw gender as “truly binary”, set in stone and anything outside of that was to them, “biologically abnormal”.

But then, “homosexual activists” put pressure on the APA to REMOVE that listing from the Diagnostic Manual. They wanted it to be known that it was a “choice”, that they were simply “choosing” to be that way, from what I read. But NOW – in the year 2017 – they’ve changed their tune. NOW they want people to think they were “born that way” and “can’t help it”. And ironically, I’ve most recently read about a survey done, that when homosexual people were asked if they’d be willing to take a pill if it “undid their gayness”, the overwhelming majority said no. Interesting.

A prominent gay activist HIMSELF most recently proclaimed: “there IS no such thing as a gay gene” 

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

Not to mention a few academic/scientific studies confirm the same:

https://www.onenewsnow.com/science-tech/2016/08/23/gay-gene-no-scientific-evidence-for-it

https://concernedwomen.org/images/content/bornorbred.pdf

http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-there-no-gay-gene

So….WHY do homosexuals and transgenders want people to think that they’re behavior is “normal?” Well, the first thing is that they’re in denial. They DON’T see what they’re doing as “Sin” at all (with many not even believing in the concept of “sin” to begin with, for that matter). While yet others likely think that, maybe, just maybe, if they can get MAN/MANKIND to approve it, then maybe that means that they could also get Jesus Christ to approve it. Because, using secular reasoning, “if too many human beings approve it, then God can’t be against it”.

But the thing to note here is that even if 99% of people on Earth APPROVED of the “sin” of homosexuality/transgenderism, it would STILL be a sin in Jesus’s eyes! And if it came down to only ONE person on the planet (and their close family, perhaps) being saved in the End, then only one person (+ any possible close family members, by proxy) would be saved! (i.e. Let us not forget Noah & his family during the time of God’s Wrath and the Great Flood Upon the Earth!)

But lets unpack this a bit. If/when a gay/trans person says they were “born that way”, they’re essentially calling God/Jesus Christ A LIAR! Not to mention that they’re ALSO saying in a sense that they HATE the way God/Jesus Christ made them! So how is that NOT sin, folks? Think about it!

ALL the LGBT fight is about (essentially) is THE RIGHT TO SIN WITHOUT EARTHLY CONSEQUENCES! That’s all it REALLY boils down to, after one has “unpacked” and “unpeeled” all the layers of what I call the “Onion of Unrighteousness”.

So the bad news is that no, they were NOT born that way and science (AND the bible) proves it! But the GOOD NEWS is that, BECAUSE they were NOT born that way, Jesus Christ can STILL change them and turn them INTO the person Jesus had ORIGINALLY intended them to be!

Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) can TAKE AWAY their “transgendered feelings” and their “homosexual attractions”. He can BIND the homosexual/transgender demons that plague a person. He can HEAL them and SET THEM FREE from the homosexual/transgender demons, and YES, they are demons, folks; demonic spirits who (much like Satan) lay in wait for whatever soul they can “capture” and “deceive”. 

Sadly, many LGBT folks are “easy pickins” for such “demons” since they’re “broken people” to begin with! Satan constantly searches out “broken people” since they’re much easier “spiritual captures” as I call them. But a person that’s SPIRITUALLY DELIVERED BY Jesus Christ from such demons is no longer a “spiritual capture” but becomes a spiritual VICTOR!

ALL humans have the fundamental right to be “respected”. For example, ALL humans have the right to go into a grocery store and buy their groceries in peace without store managers saying: “Oh, I’m sorry, only blonde-haired people can enter into the store today”. Every human has a right to be respected for biological, physical traits they can NOT help. 

But when people start demanding rights for things that they technically CAN help and that are UNBIBLICAL and UNREASONABLE in scope, (“I should have the right to go out in public dressed as something I’m physically not”, “I should have the right to murder my unborn baby for convenience”, “I should have the right to use the womens’ bathroom, even though I’m not a true/physical woman”), Houston, we’ve got a problem!

Same-sex activity/transgenderism is actually A BEHAVIOR, not an “inherent trait!” Whereas, heterosexuality is an inherent trait. John-Hopkins research has previously pointed out that homosexuality/transgenderism is NURTURE (social environment) rather than NATURE (biology). There is NO gay gene and folks, they won’t EVER find one, because it simply DOES NOT EXIST!

And the day when the “Leftist Extreme” CLAIM they “have” found one? Trust me, that’ll be the day that they’ll have to resort to “faking” the scientific find of finding one, just like they FAKED the “find” of the “Missing Link” – Ida – a mere skull of a LEMUR, HA! https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100302131719.htm

So what’s the moral of the story here, folks? Don’t believe ANYTHING the Secular Media tells ya. Heck, even those SO-CALLED pictures of the planet Mars and this or that find on Mars, with all the pictures being black and white and really, really “hazy?” I almost laugh every single time and say to myself: FAKE, FAKE, FAKEZOID! To me, the ONLY thing that’s true is the gospel of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ Almighty! 

“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”

– Romans 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ashamed/Bored/Indifferent of the Old Testament? If so, You’re Denying Him!

Many of today’s Christians in the Middle East and Asian countries ARE in “hiding/underground” due to the “hostile nature of living in a “non-democratic society” (though Egypt & Iraq could be possibly be considered “partially democratic”?). 

But here in America & around the world (as far as Western/Democratic/European nations go), it seems as though “Christians” have made some sort of “Mass Exodus” from society. It would seem that they are “in hiding”. They (as a whole) are trying to hide from having any outside identifiable mark of being a “BIBLICAL Christian” while also trying to hide their “hearts” from Jesus, as well! 

Back around the 90’s to early 00’s, homosexuals were “hiding in the closet”, sort’ve speak, while Christians were hanging about in the open, public square, unafraid of Jesus and/or their religious affiliations. In fact, it was even considered a “good time” to be a Christian, then…..The Left Behind Series by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye was really taking off and getting people to consider/question their “Eternity”, while no “Christian businesses” were getting sued for this or that. 

But here in the year 2017, things have changed. NOW – due to the anti-Christian rhetoric swirling about in today’s world from the radical left – many Christians are now currently “living in fear” and “hiding in the proverbial closet”. This is tragic.

Luke 9:26 in the New Testament states: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me [Jesus Christ] and of my words [the bible], of him shall the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be ashamed, when he [Jesus Christ] shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels”

Translation? If YOU, as a “Christian”, are ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or his words – ANY of his words (Old OR New Testament) – Jesus Christ will be ashamed of YOU during the Great White Throne Judgement/Judgement Day IN FRONT OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS HOLY ANGELS!

Now think about it for a minute. Think about what that truly means. Let it sink in for a bit………

“If I, a Christian, am ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or ANY part of his gospel (Old OR New Testament), then Jesus Christ will be ETERNALLY ASHAMED of ME, on Judgement Day, in the presence of the Heavenly Father & His Holy Angels!” 

Matthew 10:33 echoes this sentiment: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven”

Conclusion? To have Jesus Christ condemn an unfortunate soul to “the lake of fire” for denying him – on Judgement Day – is ONE thing. But for him to do it IN FRONT OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER & HOLY ANGELS? It’s more like a PUBLIC SENTENCING/ EXECUTION, FOLKS!

In the New Testament, we read the case of the apostle Peter denying Jesus 3 times. But afterwards, Peter repented and went about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

So does that mean if you deny Jesus ONCE before someone, that that means you’re automatically going to the lake of fire after you die? No, ofcourse not, ESPECIALLY if you quickly repent and vow to never deny Him again! What it means (in that bible passage) is that a person PERPETUALLY denies Him before others (rather that person denies Him in their heart or not is besides the point), and is PERPETUALLY ASHAMED of the gospel (ANY part of the gospel, be it Old or New Testament or BOTH!) 

Some Christians, sadly, probably feel “ashamed” about the Old Testament, since in it, there’s lots of warfare and because Eve converses with a “talking serpent” in the Garden of Eden. They might even go so far as to say/think: “Adam & Ever didn’t REALLY happen……….it’s just *allegory* of sorts”.

And YES….this same type of theoretical person might proudly proclaim the name of Jesus everywhere they go and be “proud” of the New Testament, even testifying OF/ABOUT the New Testament to others……..But IF they’re “ashamed” of the Old Testament in ANY type of way, (either in the depths of their hearts/minds/souls and/or among other people), then they are, in effect, ashamed of PART of the gospel since the Lord is the same yesterday, today and evermore; He’s everlasting!

John 1:1-3 states: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was GodThe same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”

Therefore, if a Christian is all in love with the New Testament but despises/is ashamed of the Old Testament, then essentially, in a nutshell, that Christian is LITERALLY metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like you in the New Testament but I don’t like you at all in the Old Testament”.

Newsflash: JESUS WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT! In Luke 9:26 and Matthew 24:30 in the New Testament, he calls himself the Son of Man, right? Guess what?

Daniel 7:13-14 in the OLD TESTAMENT says: I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed

1 John 5:10 and Romans 1:4 in the NEW Testament, respectively, proclaim: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” —-“And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead”

While Daniel 3:25 in the OLD Testament reads: “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God

Denying the Old Testament (or being “ashamed” of it), is really no different than metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like your white garment but I HATE your sandals!” Or “I totally dig your sandals but your white garment is something no self-respecting individual would wear”.

THE BIBLE IS NOT A CAFETERIA, FOLKS! JESUS’S WORDS ARE NOT A “CAFETERIA!” 

And just like Peter, there’s many Christians today who proclaim: “No Jesus, I’d NEVER deny you!” 

So why then do they reject the Old Testament and see it as “no longer viable or relevant?” Why do they treat Jesus’s words AS IF they’re a “cafeteria” where they can just pick and choose which words they like (Old Vs. New Testament) and which words they don’t?

There’s even Christians out there today who pick apart the Old and New Testaments THEMSELVES, such as: “Well……I like THIS part of the Old Testament but I hate THAT part of the Old Testament” or “I like THIS part of the New Testament but DESPISE THAT PART”. THE BIBLE IS NOT A SHOE STORE WHERE ONE CAN JUST “PICK OUT” WHAT SHOE FITS AND WHAT SHOE DOESN’T!

JESUS’S TRUTH DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND *FEELINGS & EMOTIONS* AND WHAT *FEELS/SEEM RIGHT*! THE BIBLE AND JESUS’S TRUTH SIMPLY **IS** AND THERE’S NO TAMPERING WITH IT! 

THE BIBLE’S TRUTH (JESUS’S TRUTH) IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND EVERMORE. IT’S EVERLASTING!!!!

What ALOT of Christians don’t realize today is that Jesus Christ was PROPHESIED OF in the Old Testament, while ALSO simultaneously making “pre-flesh appearences” IN the Old Testament – known as “Christophanies” – (look it up on Google). So essentially, that’s WHY people are – in effect – actually DENYING JESUS *when* they deny/ignore/are ashamed of the Old Testament! 

In fact, let me take this a step further. There’s OVER 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament, foretelling of a coming (in-the-flesh appearing) of a “Jewish Messiah” that were SUCCESSFULLY FULFILLED BY Jesus Christ in the New Testament: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/

Therefore, the New Testament is “Volume 2” of Jesus’s Words, a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament. So who are WE to DENY “Volume 1” of God’s Truth that FORETOLD of “Volume 2?” 

[NOTE: Rather or not you accept the Apocrypha (The “Middle Testament”) to be God’s Truth or not is between YOU and Jesus (although I myself personally DO see it as part of the Lord’s Truth). Therefore, using the same analogy as above, the Apocrypha would be theoretically known as “Post-Volume 1, Prequel to Volume 2”].

So I leave you all with THIS question: Do YOU believe the bible (the COMPLETE bible – Old + New Testament) – is the FULL written Word of God? If not, why? Because HOW you answer that question will determine your fate before Jesus on the Day of Judgement! I pray that any person who reads this WILL accept the COMPLETE written truth of Jesus!

Note: If you’d like a KJV bible + Apocrypha, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “Holy Bible: King James Version + Apocrypha” by Derek A. Shaver! It’s basically the 1611 KJV in modern spelling, with the Apocrypha situated BETWEEN the Old and New Testaments.

And if you already have a KJV bible and just want an Apocrypha by ITSELF, I’d recommend: “The New Oxford Annotated Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version” by Michael D. Coogan and Marc Z. Brettler

[Please note: IF you live in a country or region where ONLY the New Testament is available or ONLY the Old Testament is available, or where practically NO bibles are available, don’t fret, Jesus knows! Although you should try to do everything in your power that you possibly can TO GET access to BOTH Testaments, Old and New, and if you can, the Apocrypha (Middle Testament). Jesus will HONOR your quest for The Truth! 😉 And remember: to die for Christ is GAIN, while to live for the Devil is SPIRITUAL FOOLISHNESS!]. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus or “Breadcrumbs?”

I’ve most recently read a most PROFOUND book on “idols”. In the book, it talks about how idols are NOT JUST “statues” and “figurines”…..they can be SO MUCH MORE! 

Think back to the time of the Old Testament when there were a set of twins by the names of Jacob & Esau. Esau was the oldest of the two and back in those days (ancient, biblical times), the oldest son got most (if not all) of the father’s property when the father died, ALONG with what’s known as *the patriarchal blessing*.

It was custom back in those days that when a father died, the oldest son would “inherit” the most (if not all). This was known as his “birthright”. But RIGHT BEFORE the father died, it was custom for the father to BESTOW (that means, to give) his “personal blessing” upon the oldest son. While any consequent younger son could ALSO get some sort of “blessing”, it was always typically MUCH LESSER in degree, in comparison with what type of “patriarchal blessing” the OLDEST son would get. 

Esau was a hunter of the fields, while Jacob was more of a “homely” sheep-herder that preferred to stay at home in the camp. One day, while Esau was out hunting, Jacob cooked up some soup. And when Esau came home from his daily hunt, the SMELL of that soup must’ve been (in Esau’s nostrils, atleast) “heavenly”. He asked Jacob for some of that soup. But Jacob was clever. He said if Esau SOLD HIM HIS BIRTHRIGHT, he, Jacob, would then give him some of the soup.

Esau obliged (in other words, Esau agreed to it). And later on in the biblical narrative, we see how that plays out and how Esau is ALSO “tricked” out of his patriarchal blessing as well (or could it have been God’s wrath upon Esau for being so “careless” over his “birthright”, to begin with?) 

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: WHEN Esau SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT for a “measly bowl of soup”, he, in effect, was likened unto one who SOLD HIS SOUL for a “measly portion”. That’s all idols are, really. A “measly portion”. Breadcrumbs! They SEEM enticing and thrilling at first glance. But on the inside, they are hallow shells; SPIRITUALLY EMPTY.

And the more of these “empty idols” we have, the more we “need” in order to try to sustain ourselves. We’re like birds, chasing after, picking up and eating one “breadcrumb idol” after another. They can’t talk, move, see or hear. So what ABOUT them seems SO appealing to us? The following book attempts to answer those questions for us IN DETAIL:

NO OTHER GODS BOOK

Therefore, what was Esau’s “idol” in that case? It was FOOD!

“And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?Genesis 25:32

Genesis 25:33 goes on to say that Jacob demanded that Esau SELL his “birthright” to him. SELL IT. Think about what that MEANS, folks! And the end of the passage says that Esau DID sell it. 

“And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob” – Genesis 25:33

I guess it’s really no wonder then when we read in Romans 9:13 in the NEW TESTAMENT: “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated“.

Now…….if people reading the New Testament read that Romans 9:13 passage, WITHOUT ever even HAVING read the Old Testament, that can, at first glance, seem like a statement of “pure hatred”. But what that passage is REALLY saying (in context) is that Jesus loved the HEART of Jacob (which was set on “spiritual things”) but despised the HEART of Esau (who was stuck on “worldly/fleshly things” – like food).

Another good biblical dichotomy (in other words, comparison) is the difference between Ishmael & Isaac. God promised Abraham and Sarah a child in their old age. They waited some time and nothing happened. So they got a little “antsy” (or atleast Sarah did, anyways). Sarah decided she didn’t want to wait anymore and told Abraham to marry her slave girl, Hagar, so that Sarah might have a child THROUGH her. Abraham obeyed. Hagar had a child and his name was *Ishmael*. 

However, when Ishmael was in his early teens, Sarah DID conceive and have a child, whose name was Isaac. The book up above I read suggested that Abraham likely thought (at first, anyways) that Ishmael was the “promised heir” [because remember how, in ancient biblical times, special blessings always went to the oldest son?] but instead, it was, according to the bible, Isaac.

However, there’s also one DISTINCTION, here. Ishmael was born from a “concubine”/”slave woman” while Isaac was born of a WIFE! That makes all the difference in the world, here and is also why God’s covenant was with ISAAC, instead of Ishmael.

Now…..are there any OTHER cases in the bible where the YOUNGEST/YOUNGER son ended up getting a BIGGER “patriarchal blessing” than the OLDEST? Yes. We find that in Genesis 48:17-20…..In THIS passage, Jacob is VERY OLD in age, with all his sons (and 2 grandsons by his son Joseph) standing around him. 

Now remember, back in those days, it was typical for the oldest son to get a MUCH BIGGER blessing than any of the younger son(s). Manasseh was Joseph’s oldest son, while Ephraim was his youngest son. Joseph wanted his father Jacob to put his patriarchal blessing on his OLDEST son, Manasseh and placed his hands accordingly. But instead, Jacob did just the OPPOSITE……….He crossed his hands and blessed the YOUNGER SON, EPHRAIM, instead. 

Manasseh’s name means “causing to forget” while Ephraim’s name means “fruitful” or “causing to be fruitful”. So perhaps that has something to do with WHY the younger son was blessed over the older one. 

I’ve written ONE previous post on the subject of idols, from a slighly different angle: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/idols-in-modern-day-society/

And ya know, it’s funny. I’ve always known and REALIZED that idols don’t necessarily have to be statues or figurines. But until I saw the FULL list of what they could be (even people and “relationships”), I was never really able to put it into full scope. Therefore, that book was an EYE-OPENING book for me and I’d HIGHLY recommend it. It also comes with a BIBLE STUDY GUIDE as well. 

But in closing, I’d just like to ask: What type of idols do you have in your life? Are/were you even aware that you had them? And do you realize that idols are like “breadcrumbs”….promising spiritual nourishment but NEVER fulfilling it? And are you willing to learn to relinquish “breadcrumb idols” for the sake of a closer and COMPLETE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ?

If you answered yes to the last question, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “No Other Gods” paperback book (easier for highlighting important passages), along with the “No Other God Bible Study Guide”. And remember: strive for Jesus, NOT “BREADCRUMBS”.
