THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL: PREYING UPON THE WEAK!

MANY a televangelist in today’s world begs for $$$$$! And I’ve always wondered WHY! Churches are “tax-exempt”. So WHY then do they need people’s money? Is it REALLY necessary? What’s more, all of that donation money is TAX FREE!

Rather or not this guy in the video down below is an actual atheist or not is besides the point! He’s actually done an extremely good “expose” on some of today’s most prominent “prosperity preachers”.

WARNING: there might be a few bare hints of bleeped out cuss words here and there in his “broadcast”, but his overall message is solid! Today’s prosperity preachers are PREYING upon the weak and feeble-minded!

But then again, don’t nearly ALL modern-day “Christian churches” more or less do that? Ask for DONATIONS upon DONATIONS upon DONATIONS from the weak and feeble-minded?

Many of today’s preachers have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them……..asking for $$$$$$$ and donations for ANY reason or for NO reason, professing to “speak in tongues” (which is a bunch of demonic *mumbo-jumbo*), preaching the “prosperity gospel” that “if you send money, God will bless you”, etc.,etc.

And when even a so-called ATHEIST has to come out against these people, you KNOW they’re really, really bad and corrupt! For if they weren’t corrupt at all, the so-called atheists and non-believers wouldn’t have a leg to stand on!

I’m just so SICKENED of all the LIES and CORRUPTION I see in the modern-day “Church” today (as a whole!) People are just SO lost! “Churches” themselves and those that run them (as a whole) are just SO LOST! And Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua is ANGRY!

They (as a whole) have DENIED HIS ALMIGHTY NAME! They (in tune with 2 Timothy 3:5 in the New Testament) are described by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ as “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away“. In other words, Jesus Christ tells us to TURN AWAY FROM SUCH PEOPLE!

Today’s “church” (as a whole), as I’ve stated time and time and time again, does NOT worship the TRUE Jesus Christ of the bible but instead, worships a false, profane PAGANIZED version of him! And it’s really no wonder since many of today’s preachers (as a whole) want your $$$, $$$$ and more $$$$$! Like I said, they have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them!

For we MUST remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE! So why then do they need to “charge” for it? (Jesus Christ & his disciples never charged a SINGLE PENNY!) So why then do THEY need YOUR hard-earned work money, more than a poor, homeless guy sitting on a street corner with nothing to eat, for example? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! REALLY TRULY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE FOR AWHILE!

Jesus Christ told us in the New Testament to give to those in need. Well folks, I’m sorry but today’s preachers (as as a whole) are filthy RICH! They are NOT “in need”. True, many of them profess to use that money to “help others overseas” and to “help orphaned children in Africa” or this or that or what have you.

And while these are all good things and we SHOULD help people in need all over the world, why does it forever seem like none of these “mega-pastors” EVER truly help anyone in need (especially homeless or starving children) here in AMERICA? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS!

They want you to put money in their “coffers”, and yet, they completely IGNORE the fact that there’s thousands of starving/hungry children HERE IN AMERICA whose parents aren’t able to find or keep a job, or that has a job that pays WAY too little, etc.

And also: just where does all that money REALLY go, folks? Have you ever truly thought about that? Have you ever actually physically SEEN the “orphanage” that said preacher claims to want to raise money for? Have you ever actually SEEN images of the improved conditions of orphaned children in Africa, or even OF the individual “orphaned children” in Africa, for example? Have you ever actually SEEN a full, true, TRANSPARENT disclosure of a mega church’s “finances”? My guess is no.

On the other hand, have you ever noticed that most mega-pastors today have “high-tech expensive gadgets”, drive nice cars, live in NICE HOMES? Many unknowing people say, “they preach the Word of God all day, they DESERVE to live in a nice home and make lots of money”. REALLY? I wasn’t aware that Jesus Christ, according to THEM, was the God of Wealth & Money! However, we DO know that many “famous people” have sold their souls to THE DEVIL for money! So is SATAN the god of money, then? YOU be the judge!  

On the other hand, look at all the hard-working ministries out there that NEVER ask for a SINGLE DIME from people (like, this one for instance!). If they never ask for a single dime from people, then by deductive reasoning, that must mean that they’re paying with their own money for any “materials” for their ministry. 

In fact, I once had a person ask me if I accepted donations and I said in response “no, I don’t, for the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE”. Therefore, I REALLY, truly hope that person took that statement of mine, applied it to their life, and FLEED from all “money-grabbing pastors” that only want their $$$$$$$ and nothing more!

Have you ever ONCE known a disciple of Jesus to say to one of the ancient Jewish or Gentile people, “Give me $2 and I’ll cure you?” OFCOURSE NOT!

Folks, here’s the brutal reality. What do “mega-ministries” need money for? Today’s “church” (as a whole) is run like a BUSINESS! Donations, church “budgets”, church “real estate”, pastor’s salaries, etc.

If I myself can carry out a daily job IN ADDITION to the work I do here at my “mini-ministry” here on WordPress, and I don’t charge a SINGLE PENNY, then why do many “televangelic ministries” out there have to charge a kazillion dollars (metaphorically speaking) through “donations”, just to get people closer to God? I don’t get it.

I never ask for donations because I don’t need them nor want them. If the Lord wants me to start a “major project”, the Lord will somehow provide for my financial needs and I don’t need other people’s hard-earned work money to do it!!!!!!

In fact, money is the LAST thing on my mind these days! I’m FAR more concerned about all the “lost souls” out there and getting them saved (TRULY “Saved”, that is) in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ, THE BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST, NOT the Pagan one taught in the churches today! [But again, there are a couple of good ministries out there that ask for donations but do so for the all the right reasons……more about that later]. 

Nothing boils my blood to anger faster than seeing “spiritually corrupt” mega-pastors or big-time ministers asking for $$$$ all the time from the “church goers”. But see, folks? That’s the problem right then and there. Church is not a place you “go to”, for you MUST remember that the “true church”, the BIBLICAL CHURCH, is consisted of the body/assembly of believers THEMSELVES!

In other words, we don’t “go to church”, for we ourselves (each and every single one of us) ARE “the church”. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

Let me put this in a different way. Sally A “attends church every week”. But she forgets God the rest of the week. She sees “the church” as a BUILDING! She passes by NUMEROUS homeless people each day or poor people holding up signs asking for food.

But all she ever does is gawk at them as she passes by and says to herself, “What a bum! They should get a job” (as though a job was easily attainable for said person!) If a homeless person directly approaches her and kindly asks for money to buy food, she’ll retort, “Get a job! Then you won’t be homeless and hungry, anymore!” and walks off, without giving the homeless person a second thought, as she elegantly whisks her purse over her shoulder and thinks about her numerous other plans and errands for the day, etc. 

But Daniel B does NOT see the church as a “building” but rather sees HIMSELF (the true believer in Christ) as “the church”. For example, he sees a homeless man on the street one day and goes into a nearby restaurant and buys the homeless man and himself a meal.

He then kindly walks up to the homeless man afterwards and says, “Hi, how are YOU today, sir? My name is Daniel and I’d like to sit down with you for awhile and also give you a free meal today, if that’s alright with you”.

And then, once the meal is given to the man, Daniel might possibly eat his own meal WITH the man and talk to him for awhile, and ask how he came to be homeless and try to figure out a solution to the man’s plight. AS he’s doing this, he’ll also at the same time preach to the man the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ Almighty. THAT is true evangelism, folks! THAT is the TRUE, BIBLICAL “CHURCH MODEL”…….”being” the church, instead of “going to church”.

Many people, for example, will donate their food to a food pantry but they will NEVER stop to talk to a homeless person carrying a sign IN PERSON, etc. People will oftentimes BLAME the homeless individual for their own circumstances. But they need to THINK…….how would THEY feel if THEY were in that dire situation in life and nobody ever came to THEIR rescue and did nothing but look down on THEM and ridicule THEM? How would THEY feel?

Also, it is wrong to make assumptions about people. You don’t know that homeless person carrying a sign, personally. You have NO IDEA who they are, what they’ve been through, where they’ve been or where they’re going. You don’t even know just by looking at them if they’re to blame for their own circumstances or not. There’s plenty of homeless veterans out there, for example, that can’t find jobs for instance, because people are now looking down on the military, just like they did after the war in Vietnam! (Do your research, folks!)

Plus, I kid you not, there’s even people with PhD’s who are now homeless, due to no fault of their own! And these poor people can’t even find a job at a local McDonald’s, etc. since they are OVER-QUALIFIED! And my guess is that they probably don’t qualify for food stamps either since their level of education is much too high to “qualify” for them!

So these people are TRULY stuck! (And then, after awhile, when finding no job prospects, many of these people probably feel like giving up! But it’s “the true/biblical church’s” job (the believers in Jesus Christ, THEMSELVES), to make sure they DON’T give up, folks!)

True, some homeless people might be mean and violent. Some might try to mug or rob you. But you can’t let the fear of possible reactions keep you from doing God’s Work here on this Earth! Jesus Christ has given us all a divine commission while here on this Earth and that’s to do the Will of God. “What’s the will of God?”, some might ask. Answer: It is to do the Father’s Will. “What is the Heavenly Father’s Will?”, some might ask again. It is to read, follow and DIRECTLY APPLY the written word of God to our lives!

For example, don’t just READ about what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount of how we are to help those in need. Actively DO just that, in your own life! In other words, don’t just BELIEVE the gospel but actually DO the gospel! 

Most of us see atleast ONE homeless person with a sign every few days. How many of those people have we stopped and helped? How many? [And believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for anyone else!] True, you can make as MANY excuses in the book as you want to, as to why you didn’t help said person(s). But know this: on the Day of Judgement, the Lord Jesus Christ is gonna judge us for EVERY thought, word, deed and action.

In fact, Matthew 25: 31-40 states:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me”. 

However, in Matthew 25: 41-46, Jesus states:

Then shall he [Jesus Christ] say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”.

Therefore, a BIG part of following the Heavenly Father’s will seems to be helping those who are less fortunate than us (namely, homeless and poor people, etc.) The people in category 1 (the Sally A category) will end up being placed among the “goats” on the Day of Judgement. But the category II people (the “Daniel B’s”) will end up being pleasantly surprised as they’re placed among the “sheep” on the Day of Judgement.

Jesus Christ also says in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments” and in John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”. However, Jesus Christ says in John 14:24 “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me”.

And Matthew 5:17-18 states: Think 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”.

Which, in plain English, means that the 10 commandments and Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and 7th day Sabbath (Saturday) STILL apply/are REQUIRED by ALL of the Lord’s people (Jew and Gentile, alike) and that everything won’t be fulfilled UNTIL the times of Revelation, chapter 21-22! 

Therefore, I ask of you today. Are you a “Sally A” or a “Daniel B” type person? I pray that if you’re NOT a “Daniel B”, that you’ll learn to BECOME a “Daniel B” type of person……..and learn how to “BE” the church, instead of “going to church”.

But if you’ve been like a “Sally A” person most of your life, fret not! For there is still time for you to REPENT and learn to become more like a “Daniel B”! Whatever excuses you tried to use to justify your sin of not giving to homeless people in the past, or forgiving so and so for hurting you, etc., throw those excuses out the window and give them no merit, anymore! Ask the Lord Jesus to cleanse your mind, heart, body and spirit and to give you a new heart that’s after HIS own heart!

JESUS cared about the sick, the poor, the blind, the disabled, the lepers, etc. So don’t don’t WE, as a whole? JESUS cared about the homeless and those broken in spirit! So why don’t WE, as a whole?

How many of us have had a friend come to us in their emotional, financial, spiritual, etc,. time of need, and we thought in our hearts, “Blah blah blah, okay, enough already, stop talking, this is getting to be too emotionally draining for me, I can’t take it anymore!” as we sat or stood there and said over and over again, “uh huh, uh huh”, while only halfway listening to them, in response? [Ahem……Guilty, here. And the Lord convicted me of that so strongly….so let that serve as a warning to you all!] 

Just like how many of us have passed a homeless person carrying a sign or signs on the street and thought to ourselves, “get a job, you bum!” Or have gone to church our while lives, thinking that “attending church” would be enough for us to be in “good standing” with God/Jesus Christ Almighty? Probably a heck of alot more of us than we would care to admit!

Matthew 7:13-14 talks about JUST HOW HARD IT IS to get into the “sheep” category of Jesus Christ’s Judgement, someday: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it“.

In other words, obeying the will of God in heaven is a NARROW WAY. Which means VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW IT! Think for example, of how many “Christians” support gay ‘marriage’ and gay adoptions, today! That is an example of Christians following the BROAD PATH, the one that leads to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Here, I’ve attempted to make a Youtube video that illustrates the major differences between the BROAD WAY and the NARROW WAY. And there’s so much more I wanted to add in the video but I had to pick and choose the most important pics due to time constraints. But hopefully the video will give you a more “clearer” visual picture of the meaning of the Matthew 7:13-14 passage!

And here, Paul Washer gives a sermon on what the NARROW WAY is:

But I ask of you RIGHT NOW…….before you give another $1 to ANY ministry, ask yourself if that ministry:

  1. Preaches that we HAVE no sin since “Jesus already payed for our sins”
  2. Preaches that you must “sow seed” (GIVE MONEY) in order to RECEIVE MONEY or blessings
  3. Proclaims to “speak in tongues” (which is honestly nothing more than *demonic babble*)
  4. Proclaims to “immediately heal” “ailments” in the name of Jesus through the television or computer screen, without ever having seen said person with said “ailment” IN PERSON 
  5. Is purposely non-transparent or “vague” about their finances and “budget”
  6. Preaches on SUNDAY (the FALSE Sabbath)
  7. Partakes of FALSE/PAGANIZED holidays such as Christmas, Easter, etc.
  8. Teaches that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost) are “Jewish feasts, ONLY”
  9. Teaches that Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ
  10. Teaches that the “Christian church” has replaced Israel
  11. Preaches that God WANTS you to be wealthy
  12. Etc.

If a ministry you’re “thinking” about donating to displays any of those 12 signs, don’t walk away from that ministry, FLEE!

However, if a ministry displays any of the following 12 signs, they might possibly be an “OK” ministry to donate to (provided you have the TRUE finances for it and provided the Lord and the ministry itself *humbly* LEADS you to do so):

  1. Preaches that we’re all sinners and that we need to REPENT of our sins!
  2. Preaches the “Jewishness” of Jesus
  3. Celebrates in and STRONGLY encourages people to celebrate in the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.)
  4. Worships on the true, BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: please remember that  a Jewish “day” begins at sundown, the night before!)
  5. Does NOT preach that the modern day “church” has replaced Israel
  6. Does NOT preach that God wants you to be wealthy
  7. Preaches about the importance of actively DOING the Word of God, not just reading about it in the bible!
  8. Preaches that even JEWS themselves need to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty!
  9. Is totally upfront about their finances and their budget. As in, you can clearly see where all your money’s going. You can see actual physical body evidence of it being money well spent for the kingdom of God.
  10. Does NOT proclaim to speak in tongues, per say
  11. Does NOT preach that you must “send money” in order to be blessed by God!
  12. ****Talks about THE TRUTH about the times we’re living in as it pertains to bible prophecy, and THE TRUTH about the “abominable sins” of homosexuality and abortion, etc.****
  13. In other words, if you’re going to “donate” to a ministry AT ALL, atleast make sure to ONLY donate to a ministry that TELLS YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE THINGS!   
  14. But a good general rule of thumb is not to “donate” to 97% of today’s “ministries”! Why? BECAUSE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY IS FREE, AND WILL **ALWAYS** BE FREE!

For Jesus Christ said in John 8:38 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. And guess what? Jesus Christ never charged a SINGLE PENNY for his gospel of Salvation! So why should WE? Think about that long and hard, folks!

One end-times ministry out there I enjoy listening to is the one called “Open Your Eyes People”, led by Anita & Ignacio Fuentes. They preach AGAINST homosexuality and “politically correct”, AGAINST abortion, tell you THE TRUTH about what the bible says on many topics, while also teaching the IMPORTANCE of bible prophecy and HOW it pertains to End Times events, while also preaching the IMPORTANCE of getting right with God/Jesus Christ and STAYING right with him!

They preach about sin, being born again, REPENTING of sin, READING **and** OBEYING the bible, the TRUTH about things in the News, etc. Basically, they preach THE TRUTH about things — as a whole — and don’t give you any watered-down messages like you get in the churches today! They’re RAW and HONEST! And YES — they DO ask for donations but the money is well spent! They hold bible prophecy conferences, they send out free bibles to those who need one, they send out welcome packages to new Christians or those who’ve returned to Christ after a long hiatus!  

As for all the OTHER ministries out there that ask for money? Specifically ones like Joel Osteen, Benny Hin, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdock, Robert Tillman, etc.? These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing! They DON’T give a care about your Salvation or your walk with God! Can you EVER imagine Jesus Christ saying to people, “the love of money is the root of ALL righteousness?” OFCOURSE NOT! And when I hear over the radio things like, “we’ll send out our full entire CD set for 50% off for a donation of any amount, etc.”, I’m always silently thinking to myself, “why can’t these people just send this stuff out for free if they REALLY, truly care about all the lost souls out there so much?”

But then again, maybe it’s just my own frustration talking, there. I myself have sacrificed my OWN hard-earned work money for my “witnessing projects”, so why can’t those mega-pastor folks who ask for money all the time do the same? It honestly reminds me of beggars in the street. Beggars NEED food and money though, since they HAVE NONE. What are mega-pastors’ excuse? Ya know? Jesus’s disciples never asked for money to preach the gospel. Am I missing something, here?  

But in fact, it seems quite fitting when Jesus said in Matthew 19:24 “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” and in 2 Timothy 3:4-5 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” and 2 Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”.

James 1:22 states: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves”.

Can it get ANY MORE CLEARER THAN THAT, PEOPLE? Ask yourselves that!

URGENT END-TIMES MESSAGE: GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA & “THE CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE):

The ONLY reason that evil’s been able to PROLIFERATE in this country (the U.S.) and the WORLD today is DUE to the “lack of action” of the “church”. Let me explain:

The VERY first mistake of all Christian churches (at their onset) was to incorporate a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sun-day) and “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Halloween, etc.) into the church. This is what originally STARTED the “Great Apostasy” within the Lord’s people. And the SECOND mistake of all Christian churches was to apply for “tax-exempt status”, thus, allowing the STATE to become their head, instead of having JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY as their head (& chief cornerstone). And the THIRD mistake of the “churches” has been giving a “thumbs up” to things that are clearly FORBIDDEN in the bible (abortion, divorce, sodomy/homosexual lust, materialism, etc.)

Pretty much 97% of ALL Christian churches since the time of 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea are APOSTATE [though a VERY SMALL percentage — perhaps 3% or so — are still TRUE to the BIBLICAL Judeo-Christian gospel of Jesus Christ!] So then is it REALLY any surprise then that Christian “churches” TODAY (as a whole) are a FAR, FAR cry from what they were during the time of Jesus? And is it really any surprise with what rate of speed the “churches” (as a whole) have openly accepted things that are CLEARLY CONDEMNED in the bible?

Today, in the year 2015, the “church” (as a whole) seems to be “bowing down” to CULTURE and to MAN, rather than to God/Jesus Christ Almighty! For example, the “churches” of today accepting “openly sexual clergy members” and “GAY MARRIAGE WITHIN THE CHURCH: THE **ULTIMATE ABOMINATION?** That’s just the icing on the cake, as far as apostasy goes. What’s next? Will churches also soon “legitimize” incest, polygamy/commune marriages, pedophilia, prostitution, etc? Where does it all end? For if “sodomy” is okay, what OTHER sins are “okay”? (Do you see where I’m going with this, people?)

And then people have the audacity to turn around and wonder WHY the world is “so evil”, today! It’s because “the churches”, and people in general (as a whole) have turned their back on GOD/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! And we know from the pages of Holy Writ that whenever a nation (as a whole) “forgets God”, he sort’ve leaves them to their own devices for awhile so people (as a whole) OF that nation can come to know what a world without Him is like:

He does this part out of anger/grief over their blatant sin of defying Him & part out of Tough Love, in order to try to draw people and/or a nation (and even specifically the world) back TO Him! That’s why there’s been such “brutal attacks” in the NAME of Islam, lately, for example……the Lord Jesus of the bible is SHOWING us first-hand what the long-term CONSEQUENCES are of following or “enabling” a false religious system like Islam, Roman Catholicism, etc. You have Islamic ISIS members beheading Christians in Middle East, etc., and then you a SLEW of child-molesting Roman Catholic priests.

But in fact, I’ve even heard a horrifying case of some Hindus BURNING 2 CHRISTIANS **ALIVE** IN AN OVEN – A WELDING-TYPE OVEN, much like the Nazis did! (ISIS must be proud!) And see, it’s one thing to not agree with a “religion” but you when you have to resort to DEATH & DESTRUCTION to get your point across? That’s a fairly good indicator that you don’t follow the true God of the bible but instead, follow a FALSE GOD, A **CREATED BEING**, which is SATAN!

The God of the bible is the one and only TRUE GOD — for he created everything & EVERYONE in the universe, INCLUDING the angels! But Satan is NOT god of the universe! He is merely a CREATED BEING with only LIMITED POWER! So why worship a being with LIMITED POWER (SATAN/ALLAH/**PAGANINZED ROMAN CATHOLIC JESUS**) when you can worship the Almighty God/BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST of the bible that has INFINITE/EVERLASTING POWER and that can ETERNALLY SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS?

Islam teaches that one doesn’t know for 100% sure if they will enter “Eternal Paradise” or not; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY gives the true follower of Jesus Christ Almighty the 100% ASSURANCE of Salvation and “Eternal Life”. Roman Catholicism teaches that “good works” will save a person; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY in the bible records: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2:8-9]

 Notice how BOTH of those religious systems MOCK the holy bible by introducing FALSE/UNBIBLICAL “doctrines” such “Jesus was NOT the son of God” [Islam] or that the VIRGIN MARY was IMMACULATELY CONCEIVED [Roman Catholicism] or that Genesis is not true [Roman Catholicism].  

But that brings me to my next point: If morality is subjective, WHO gets to decide what’s “sin” and what’s not? If there’s NO general consensus, that would just be chaos and disorder. But Jesus is NOT a God of chaos & disorder, he is a True, Eternal God that’s full of organization & divine order. If our planet, the Earth, was shifted just a few degrees off its axis, life on Earth would NOT be possible. And contrary to what some “scientists” might believe, our universe is not “chaotic”, it’s neatly organized and ordered.  

There is a REASON he placed certain stars and planets where he did, for example. Just like there is a REASON he created his divine “moral code”. Our laws are actually BASED on God’s laws/the 10 commandments. Without God’s laws in place, there WOULD be no morality. And to say one can have morality without God/Jesus Christ’s REDUNDANT since, like I said, who would create the “laws” of mortality in a “subjective morality” and how would such “subjective morality laws” be enforced?

The answer is, subjective mortality can NOT be enforced because it’s well, subjective. For example, one person might think it’s an utter sin to kill another person for insurance money while another may not. So who gets to be “right”, in the subjective morality model? If each man/woman/child on this Earth had a “subjective morality model” and was only for themselves, humans on the Earth wouldn’t last too long, now, would they? We all would’ve killed each other off by now……because hey….with no global human rights laws and no murder laws because “morality is subjective”, what would stop people from doing so, in that case?

Answer: the ONLY way to have “order” is to have a “moral code”, and the only way to have a moral code is to have one set in stone. And God literally set his 10 commandments in stone. And later on, The Sermon on the Mount went much deeper and talked about THE INTENTION of each of the 10 commandments. Therefore, the Sermon on the Mount actually EXPANDED on the 10 commandments, so those Christians out there that try to claim that the 10 commandments were done away with are SADLY MISINFORMED!    

But anyways, the church (as a whole) was SILENT when it came to the issues of divorce, abortion, adultery, idolatry, materialism, sodomy/gay relationships, gay marriage, etc. And IN doing so, it just gave the dark side the fuel they needed to start their DEPRAVED FIRE over mankind (and the church as a whole). In fact, in today’s world, evil seems to be “winning”. Why is that, do you think?

Because most certainly, if “the church” (as a whole) had STOOD ITS GROUND on those issues, I can guarantee there wouldn’t be 1/10th as much evil as we see in the world TODAY! In fact, the dark side (as a whole) would be forced to live in the closet, as if THEY were the “religious minority”. But sadly, in the year 2015, those living on the Dark Side of forces seem to be in the “spiritual majority”, while the rate of BIBLICAL-ROOTS CHRISTIANS (those who take the bible, End Times prophecies, the Lord’s *7th-Day Saturday Sabbath* AND the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays SERIOUSLY) seems to be dwindling. My, how far this country and this world, has fallen! ;(

Yet, all throughout the bible, God was much more harsh with his OWN people, as a whole (when they most seriously “acted up”) than with foreign peoples. In fact, His Wrath starts WITHIN the house of God/his OWN people, and THEN branches outward. Why? Because he simply EXPECTS MORE from his OWN people, rather than from OTHERS who are NOT part of “His people”. Lets face it, all the people living in the world today that DON’T adhere to Him? He EXPECTS them to “act up” and isn’t surprised when they do so. But when the Lord’s OWN PEOPLE act up? THAT’S when He, the great Lord, gets angry & disappointed. Why? Because the Lord’s people know better!

In other words, “the church”, as a whole, should know better than to “legitimize/endorse” behaviors that are SIN in the bible (such as divorce, abortion, adultery, sodomy/lust, materialism, idolatry, humanism, etc.) That’s WHY the Lord God’s FAR more angry with “the church” today (as a whole) than he is with all the non-believers, etc. Now, that’s not to say that the Lord ISN’T angry with the scoffers/mockers/etc., for He most certainly IS! It’s just that He’s FAR more angry with his own “spiritual children” (that he expects MORE FROM) than he is with all others.

And I don’t know alot but I DO know this: the Lord God Almighty is calling “THE CHURCH” (as a whole) to REPENTANCE! Jesus Christ is LONGING for His Children (the Church/Body of Believers) but the Church/Body of Believers is NOT ready! The Church (as a whole) is FAR from ready!

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee” – [Revelation 3:3]

In the above passage, Jesus Christ is talking to “The Church” (as a whole). In fact, in ALL passages in Revelation talking about “the churches”? It is of MY personal belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is actually talking to the “The Church” (as a whole). In the book of Revelation, there’s 7 churches and 7 spirits of God.

And in my humble opinion, the 7 churches can mean literal churches (at the time of Jesus?) but they can also mean 7 different TYPES of Christians and/or 7 different TYPES of spiritual relationships with the Lord. However, taken together as a WHOLE, one can gather ALL the “grievances” that the Lord Jesus Christ HAS against the 7 churches and take it AS A WHOLE! Just like whatever Jesus Christ APPLAUDS about any of the 7 Churches, one can also likely take THAT as a whole, as well! (HOWEVER, the REWARDS in New Jerusalem — the new heavenly city — for those few REDEEMED by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ  — are going to differ from person to person, someday!)

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

And in Matthew 7: 13-14, Jesus said: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and BROAD is the way, that leadeth to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be which go in thereatBecause STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE [Jesus Christ Almighty], and FEW there be that find it

What’s really, really sad to me is that many of today’s “Christians” automatically assume that they’re gonna spend eternity with Jesus Christ someday and “be saved from Hell/Eternal Condemnation”, as it were. But what Jesus Christ is SAYING in the above 2 passages proclaims that will NOT be the case! For Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua says that there will be VERY FEW people that are redeemed by Him. VERY FEW.

So how utterly terrifying would that be, if a “Christian” THOUGHT they were gonna enter into the heavenly city someday called “New Jerusalem”, ONLY to be later turned away and cast into OUTER DARKNESS in the LAKE OF FIRE **FOR ETERNITY** with all the OTHER nonbelievers, scoffers, mockers, etc.? That would be utterly terrifying, INDEED! 

And I can just picture, now……..Christians (right after the Judgement) saying to Jesus Christ the King: “But I went to church every week, I donated to charity, I cast out demons in your name, I increased the church attendance ten-fold, I did this, I did that!” with Jesus Christ just giving them a look of retort AND angered/grieved sadness saying:“I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.

On other OTHER hand, I can picture some of the more “humble” ones………the Christians that AREN’T so arrogant in their thinking, that think to themselves………“Man…….the Lord’s done SO MUCH for me, and for Him, I’ve done SO very little, there’s SO MUCH MORE WORK for the Lord that I COULD be doing, the work I’ve done for Him already ISN’T NEARLY enough!” with Jesus Christ the King proudly & joyously saying: “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

And in today’s world, there’s much “discussion” and “viewpoints” and “teachings” on the bible and bible prophecy. I think the Lord purposely allowed it to be set up this way in the Last Days in order to test the hearts, souls and minds. Why? Because He wants to know our true character and rather or not we truly love Him or not.

Remember during the time of the New Testament when Jesus asked Peter THREE TIMES, “Peter, do you love me?” and how Jesus answered the third time, “then feed my sheep”? The Lord Jesus was testing Peter’s character. And if He was testing PETER’S character (his most FAVORITE disciple, or so it SEEMS), you can bet your toosh that Jesus continually tests OUR character! And he HAS to do so in order to “refine” us and “refine our faith”. Because if he DIDN’T continually test us, he’d be just like a P.E. Teacher who let all his children run amok around the gym, with no discipline or supervision! Think about it, folks!

But I think some of the “marker points” He will use to “divide the wheat from the tares” will likely be the following:

1). Does a Christian BELIEVE the bible (front to back) LITERALLY, from Generations to Revelation? 

2). DOES A PERSON LOVE JESUS MORE THAN THEY LOVE THEIR OWN LIVES? ARE THEY WILLING TO DIE FOR JESUS, IF NEED BE?

3). Has a Christian read the entire bible for THEMSELVES (instead of leaning on traditions of man/pastors/priests) and have they hungered and thirsted for righteousness, above all other things?

4). Does a Christian openly accept (or tolerate) behaviors that are CLEARLY SIN in the bible such as divorce, adultery, sodomy/lust, homosexuality, materialism, greed, pride, envy, IDOLATRY, gluttony, abortion, humanism, etc? 

5). Does a Christian try to “earn” their Salvation with “works”, instead of by FAITH?

6). Does a Christian give PRAISE & THANKS/THANKSGIVING to the Lord Jesus Christ continually, where praise is due?

7). Does a Christian think “going to church every week” will save him or her?

8). Does a Christian still worship on a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sunday) and in “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Halloween) without a care or thought in the world about WHY “today’s Christianity” is so seemingly PAGAN, above all else?

9). Does a Christian HAVE strong faith in Jesus Christ and His Almighty Power?

10). Does a Christian GIVE to others freely, without expecting ANYTHING in return?

11). Does a Christian “hold a grudge” against anyone?

12). Does a Christian feel MAJOR REMORSE over any and all sin in their life? And has a Christian PRAYED FOR FORGIVENESS of such sin? And has a Christian STOPPED DOING said sin(s)?

13). Does a Christian love others more than they love themselves? And does a Christian have any “harsh judgement” in their hearts for any others?

14). Has a Christian boldly stepped out in faith and proclaimed the gospel to others?

15). Does a Christian have a PERSONAL one-on-one/NON-COMMERCIALIZED spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? As in, Jesus Christ is closer to them than even their very own bestfriends (much similar to Enoch in the Old Testament)?

16). Has a Christian warned OPEN HOMOSEXUALS/BISEXUALS about the SIN of sodomy and the realities of hell/lake of fire/eternal condemnation?

17). Plus many, many more! 

But one thing I DO know is THIS: The Lord Jesus Christ is trying to prepare HIS BRIDE (“The Church”) for his soon glorious return in the clouds of heaven! That is when he’ll snatch up His Bride, in anticipation for “The Wedding Supper Of The Lamb”, one of the most glorious events in Heaven’s history! 😉 

So please, I ask you, I beg of you, I IMPLORE YOU, and I PLEAD WITH YOU, from the bottom of my hearts and the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL……If you’re not right with Jesus Christ today, then I pray today that you GET RIGHT WITH HIM and DO NOT TARRY! And if you’ve NEVER come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before and/or you’re not a believer in Jesus Christ, then I pray that TODAY is the day of your Salvation in Christ Jesus! 

Time is of the essence! Tomorrow’s not guaranteed! And Eternity is FOREVER! Now is NOT the time to be playing with your Eternal Salvation, folks! Just like now is not the time for “The Church” (as a whole) to be playing games with ITS SALVATION (as a whole). 

The warning call has been sounded all across the board in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ by the Lord’s BIBLICAL servants of 2015. Will YOU listen? Will “I” listen? Will the “U.S. nation – as a whole” listen? And will “The Church” (as a whole) listen? For your sake and for my sake, I sure hope so! Amen.
