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

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

And WHY is that, do you think?

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

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

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

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

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 They will call you “old school”, “outdated”, a “hater”, a “bigot”, etc.!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

God’s Wrath is Upon His Church: They Remained Silent!

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

The United States of America used to be one of THE MOST prosperous nations on Earth. And the reason being was for TWO reasons:

a). This great nation was founded upon the principles of God Almighty & the Holy Bible (Matthew 6:33 states, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”)

b). This nation was once friends and full allies with the true, biblical nation of “Israel” (Genesis 12:3 states, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”)

However, as many of you now know, that is NO LONGER THE CASE…….For NOW, in the year 2015:

1). This nation of America has pretty much GUTTED OUT God Almighty & the Holy Bible

2). The world (as a whole) now hates the biblical nation of Israel (and the true biblical children of Israel) now MORE THAN EVER BEFORE

3). This nation now SANCTIONS sin, such as homosexuality/transgenderism, homosexual relationships, abortion, divorce & homosexual adoptions/ “family”

4). Many Anti-Life proponents are now saying that a woman should be able to get an abortion at ANY stage in pregnancy

5). The rate of Satanic-themed movies, books, music and TV shows is at an ALL-TIME HIGH

6). SCOTUS ruled in FAVOR of gay marriage in all 50 states, which will now lead to commune marriages, incest marriage, pedo marriage, bestiality marriage, inanimate object marriage, etc., until marriage isn’t even a recognized institution, anymore

7). Many “churches” today are following a FALSE/PAGAN Christianity and ENDORSE the abominable sins of homosexuality/transgenderism, abortion, divorce, materialism, no repentance for sins, etc.

8). There’s been an INCREASE in Witchcraft/Satanism/Wicca/The “New Age Movement” and many people are awaiting a “new light consciousness”

9). Most people didn’t even bat an eyelash when girls ages 4-9, provocatively dressed, danced like hookers ON STAGE during a live “dance competition” on an ABC News clip and people in the crowd JUST CHEERED LOUDLY or when seeing the movie trailer of “Bad Grandpa” where a young boy, dressed like a girl, is dancing like a stripper on a stage and the “grandpa” is THROWING MONEY AT HIM…….(SICKENING!!!!)

10). Our economy is failing, our morals are failing, our markets are failing, our whole way of life is failing

And the one thing I know is THIS: God’s Wrath has been on America since about 2005 or so….Think back to Hurricane Katrina….one of the biggest natural disasters in our nation’s history! But with all the things happening lately here in the year 2015, SIMULTANEOUSLY, CONVERGING ALL TOGETHER **AT ONCE**, God’s Anger has now reached a BOILING POINT! ;(

Today’s Supreme Court decision making gay marriage legal in all 50 states is literally the END OF THE END!

In the year 2012 or so, it was what I and many other people considered to be the “beginning” of The End (though some people have started the countdown right after 9/11 happened). And now, in the year 2015, it’s coming to an ABSOLUTE breaking point.

In fact, I started thoroughly “documenting” all the headlines dealing with blatant attacks on true, BIBLICAL Christianity in the year 2014 (You can even click on the page there, right on my blog, to see all the headlines from that year!) In 2014, there was a total of 247 headlines. But guess what, folks? Now, halfway through the year 2015 (and the year’s NOT EVEN finished, yet), we’re already up to 840 some headlines! 840! That should tell you something, folks!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus’s 2nd arrival upon the Earth is fast approaching and when he returns, he will be returning with GREAT WRATH against all unbelievers and those who mocked/ridiculed/had a lukewarm attitude towards Him! I’ve actually SEEN a physical manifestation of God Almighty’s Anger, once. He crashed down a loud, HUGE lightning bolt right outside my window, to get my attention! It wasn’t pretty and it was THE MOST terrifying thing in my life that I’ve EVER experienced! And that was just a SMALL “taste” of the Lord’s Anger! Imagine his anger against ALL the Earth’s “dissidents” that don’t adhere to Him! That would be terrifying, INDEED!

In fact, Revelation 6:15-17 states quite bluntly: “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

It’s kind’ve funny how people never really consider THE CHILDREN that are brought up in gay marriages/gay partnerships. Marriage in our overall global society USED to be a NATURAL/BIBLICAL/GOD-ORDAINED institution that was one man, one woman and any children they had together, as a result (i.e. “the traditional family”). But NOW, the global definition of “marriage” and “family” is shifting.

Here, (**NEWSFLASH**) a gay activist herself ADMITS (or BRAGS?) that the purpose of “gay marriage” is TO DESTROY MARRIAGE, ALTOGETHER!

http://illinoisfamily.org/homosexuality/homosexual-activist-admits-true-purpose-of-battle-is-to-destroy-marriage/

But hey, don’t worry folks, destruction of “traditional marriage”, as well as the INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE, in and of ITSELF, is already well ahead on the way:

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

Marriage and family is supposed to be the “golden thread” that holds together any society. Get rid of the “basic thread” of marriage/family, and you got problems. Look what happened to the ancient Greeks and Romans, for instance. Look also at what happened to other ancient Babylonian-type societies that “prized” homosexuality/pedophilia above all else (Sodom & Gomorrah, for instance)……All those societies PERISHED and America will ALSO likewise PERISH, due to the Supreme Court’s Friday decision to legalize homosexuality NATION-WIDE.

What that dreadful court decision DID is effectively make us (America) A MODERN-DAY VERSION OF SODOM & GOMORRAH! (Because remember that an attack on “traditional marriage and family” IS an attack on God/the bible since traditional marriage and family was HIS design!)

And now that this nation has become a 21st century version of SODOM & GOMORRAH? That’s pretty darn scary, considering that the Lord God destroyed THOSE two ancient cities with fire & brimstone! So will the Lord God now decide to burn AMERICA to the ground, too? In Genesis 9:11, the Lord says to Noah: “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth”. 

So in OTHER words, the Lord promised Noah that he would NEVER again destroy the Earth with a global flood and used the sign of the RAINBOW as HIS covenant with Noah and all living! (ALTHOUGH THE LORD NEVER MADE ANY PROMISES ABOUT NOT DESTROYING THE WHOLE EARTH AGAIN BY FIRE!)

And because the Lord God used THE RAINBOW as a mark of his covenant to Noah and all living that he’d never again destroy the Earth with a global flood ever again (GENESIS 9:12-15), the RAINBOW actually belongs to GOD and is GOD’S, not MAN’S! So I can ONLY imagine how ANGRY the Lord God must feel every single time he sees a profane “rainbow flag” celebrating sodomy and sexual promiscuity! He must be beyond angry! So it’s actually amazing that the Lord’s able to hold his anger IN and that he’s patient & long-suffering! But ONE of these days, his anger will reach a BOILING POINT and I believe that was this past Friday, when the Supreme Court a) legalized gay marriage all across the land and when b) the White House prominently displayed the profane rainbow colors on the outside!

RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR4 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR2 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

In Matthew, chapter 24, we read about something called “The Abomination of Desolation”. I’ll admit I can’t hardly sleep at night, these days. My mind keeps visually popping back to when they shined the full rainbow “colors” ON the outside of the White House! Could THAT maybe be the “Abomination of Desolation” that the Lord was talking about? The “Abomination of Desolation” is talking about WHEN the Anti-Christ sets himself in the place of God and calls himself God. Some people think Obama’s some sort of “Messiah”, I kid you not! (Although I have to admit that Obama pretty arrogantly rejects the bible and acts like he’s some sort of “god” that’s able to thwart times and laws…….the book of Daniel talked about this, folks!!!!!!)

And ironically enough, the pope calls himself the Vicar of God/God’s Mouthpiece on Earth. So essentially, the pope is literally CALLING himself Jesus Christ Incarnate with that title. And every “pope” has had that title:

The Catholic Council of Trent in 1545 declared this: “We define that the Holy Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world”

In the same century, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine stated this: “All names which in the Scriptures are applied to Christ, by virtue of which it is established that he is over the church, all the same names are applied to the Pope”

In 1895 an article from the Catholic National said this: “The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ, Himself, hidden under the veil of flesh”

But THIS pope, in particular……What’s PARTICULARLY striking about him is THE FOLLOWING:

  • “‘Reading Genesis we imagine that God is ‘a wizard with a magic wand’ capable of doing all things, he said. ‘But it is not so. He created life and let each creature develop according to the natural laws [Evolution] which he had given each one.’”
  • [The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism – the belief that God created the world in six days – and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world]
  • “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
  • “Since many of you do not belong to the Catholic Church and others are non-believers, from the bottom of my heart I give this silent blessing to each and every one of you, respecting the conscience of each one of you but knowing that each one of you is a child of God.”
  • “From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”
  • “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.”
  • “A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”
  • “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
  • ETC.

And I think that’s what alot of people don’t get. The Roman Catholic Church has been calling itself “a woman” ALL ALONG, just like the Pope has been more or less calling himself/his title “GOD” all along, since the very INCEPTION/beginning of the Roman Catholic Church, it’s just that many weak-minded individuals were too blind to see! The Book of Revelation talks about the “Whore of Babylon” who gets “drunk, by the blood of the saints”. Well, what better description of that than the Roman Catholic Church, people? THINK ABOUT IT!

[The “spiritual harvest” is taking place where the wheat will be divided from the tares. And I think ONE of the MAJOR diving factors will be rather or not one believes “homosexuality/gay marriage/gay adoption” is SIN or not. Another dividing factor will probably be if one adheres to God’s traditions/God’s Biblical Holidays or Man’s/Catholic-originated Pagan Holidays. And a third dividing factor will probably be, did we love others AND the Lord God Almighty more than we loved ourselves? While the fourth factor could likely be did we BELIEVE in God Almighty HIMSELF or did we spend the entirety of our lives ridiculing and mocking him/the very “concept” of his existence and/OR following other false religions?]

By the way, the pope has already more or less declared himself to be “God”. And the “colors of the gay rainbow” were already prominently displayed on the OUTSIDE of the White House. So perhaps the “Abomination of Desolation” talked about in Matthew 24 is ALREADY HERE, like I said. Which can only mean that MAJOR TRIBULATION will now be coming upon this Earth and ESPECIALLY upon this nation!

Are you ready, Christians? Are you ready to be persecuted? Are you ready to get imprisoned and/or DIE for your faith in Jesus Christ, if you have to? MAJOR PERSECUTION IS COMING! SO GET READY, FOLKS! IT’LL BE THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE! AS WELL AS THE FIGHT FOR YOUR **VERY SOUL***! 

The Popular Way Vs. God’s Way

The Christian Church (up until most recently in the year 2005? or so) has always had a strong view against homosexuality/homosexual behavior. And because of this, church attendance in years past hasn’t been very popular. But now with the changing societal norms and being gay being the so-called “in” thing now (or so it “seems”, anyways), many Christian churches have now followed suit and now claim it’s “OK” to be actively gay and allows openly homosexuals to marry and be clergy members WITHIN the church! And that, in and of itself, is an abomination and goes directly AGAINST the written word of God in the bible!

In wanting to gain more converts and more pews filled, the Church has seemingly become more “world-friendly” in its stance on sin, proclaiming false things like “it’s OK to be an active homosexual” and “there’s no such thing as sin, since Jesus Christ ALREADY died on the cross for our sins” and “once saved, always saved”. But tell me. Is the holy bible like going through a Burger King drive-thru? Metaphorically speaking, is it okay to order the tomato without the lettuce, the lettuce without the tomato, cheese and pickle but no onion on the hamburger, etc? Just like that wouldn’t be a complete cheeseburger (in my eyes) without ALL those things ON it, the written Word of God is not complete without ALL of God’s commandments IN it. Cause otherwise, what did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Think about it, folks!

Matthew 7: 13-14 states: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.

Matthew 7: 15-18 says: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

Matthew 7: 19-23 says:Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fireWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

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

Matthew 7: 13-14 means that MANY, MANY people will take the “popular” way out and do what is popular in the WORLD, but NOT what is popular with God/Jesus Christ/the bible. In wanting to feel or be “accepted”, they will forsake all or parts of the bible in their quest to FEEL “accepted”. But these sinners (and please note I’m talking about ALL types of sinners that want to justify their sin, here, NOT JUST openly active homosexuals) care more about feeling accepted by mankind, rather than by feeling/being accepted by God/Jesus Christ. And in SO doing, they forsake any chance they might have at true Salvation through Jesus Christ, except if they repent of their sins and come back to the TRUE biblical truth of Jesus Christ & Salvation before it’s too late.

Matthew 7:15-29 means that many people will profess to come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and TRUE Christianity, but only a very few select FEW will actually be as such, for MANY will be “pretend Christians” or “wayward Christians” who THINK or PRETEND they are following the bible but actually aren’t or of whom PURPOSELY lead people astray for their own personal, financial or spiritual gain. Just think of the many “Christian ministries” out there that have gotten in trouble for “financial fraud” most recently in the last few years. This is a REAL growing problem in today’s “church”.

Matthew 7:16 states: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” In other words, do those that come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ manifest the “fruits” of patience, unconditional love, biblical truth, kindness, non-judgement, etc. or do they show ungodly “fruits” such as greed, envy, wrath, financial fraud/embezzlement, hatred for others, UN-biblical truths,etc.? Some of today’s modern churches and “Christian ministries” have proven themselves to be “ungodly fruits” who care more about the mighty $$$, than they do about saving souls for Christ and this is very sad & unfortunate and breaks my heart and soul to PIECES! ;( 

Matthew 22:14 reminds us:For many are called, but few are chosen.”

There seems to be this false teaching that’s permeating the very FABRIC of our society today that “all paths lead into one” or “everybody goes to heaven unless they were Stalin or Adolf Hitler, etc” when that’s just simply not true! Matthew 7: 13-14 is VERY CLEAR that it is a NARROW path and FEW actually find it!!!!!! So people are gonna have to choose in this life. Do they want to be popular with God/Jesus Christ or with fellow man? And IF a person chooses they’d rather be popular with fellow man and NOT with God, there’s an eternal price they’ll have to pay for that someday, if they don’t repent of their sins and turn back to Jesus Christ before it’s too late!

Once more, there’s TWO ways in this world and two ways, ONLY! One is either FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ. There is NO other way! Cause the truth is, ALL paths but ONE lead unto DARKNESS and the ONLY true path to God is through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! ALL OTHER PATHS (meaning, all other world religions or philosophies, INCLUDING ATHEISM/AGNOSTICISM) lead into ETERNAL DARKNESS & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Those Christians out there that SAY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal paradise might SEEM “narrow-minded” on the surface, but Jesus Christ has SAID that the path to eternal paradise is narrow and FEW actually find it!

Not all of the religion in the WORLD (Agnosticism/Atheism/Catholicism/Wicca/Satanism/Islam/Hinduism/Buddhism/Mormonism/Humanism/Shintoism/Wayward-Unbiblical Christianism, etc.) is going to save you if you don’t put your faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! Acts 4: 12 states:  Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

 

 

 

Satan’s War On the Soul Through *Music*

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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