“Corona Virus”: A Test-Run For The Soon-Coming GLOBAL Mark of the Beast Society

So around December 12, 2019 or so, a NEW “virus” (called “Corona Virus”) was announced in Wuhan, China. It was said to be similar to SARS (“Bird Flu”), the “common cold” and “common flu”. And people weren’t really panicking much then. It was (to most Americans and those in Westernized nations) just some “distant virus” in some “distant land”.

Still, I, like many other Americans, secretly worried about the Chinese people from afar and wondered how bad of an impact the so-called “virus” would have on its general population! I prayed in the name of Jesus that the number of deaths, (if any) from the “virus” would be low and that the Chinese people would recover (as a people and as a nation!)

But oddly enough, from the very first headline until NOW, there seems to be NO CONSISTENCY in media coverage of the virus! That fact alone makes me very, very suspicious! First, they say it’s “low risk”. Then they act like it’s the Black Plague of Death. Then they revert back to calling it about as bad as the common cold, and easy to “recover from”. Then they’re emphasizing it could actually be “worse” then the flu and that people can actually DIE from it.

And NOW, on Friday, March 13, 2020, (nearly three months TO THE DAY of the first media announcement of the virus in China), they’re now shutting down schools, businesses, and the like, here in America. And yet not ONE reliable news source can seem to give us 100% exactly HOW the virus came about! It’s like they needed to find SOMETHING to blame it on! SARS? Easy. Blame it on the birds. Zika? Simple. Blame it on the mosquitoes. Corona? Easy as pie. Blame it on the BATS!

But regardless of the TRUE cause of the “virus”, people are panicking! TOILET PAPER, paper towels, baby wipes, rice, beans, dish-washing and laundry detergent supplies, latex gloves, face masks, cold medicines, HAND SANITIZERS, hand soaps, etc. are just FLYING off the shelves!

At SEVERAL different popular stores in my city, the toilet paper aisles were WIPED CLEAN! I’ve personally observed at TWO popular stores in my city people loading up their carts SKY HIGH, plus also witnessed a guy and his son hoard and buy what looked like SIXTEEN packs of 24-bottled waters! (To date, I had never seen anything like that in ALL MY LIFE!)

BUT JUST TODAY, I CAME ACROSS TWO OF **THE MOST GREEDIEST** PROFITEERING HOARDING CASES I HAD EVER SEEN IN ALL MY LIFE! A recent New York Times articles: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/14/technology/coronavirus-purell-wipes-amazon-sellers.html

In case you’re not able to read the full article, here are some of the pictures from the article:

Real Estate Developers BRAGGED on social media about “cashing in” on the Corona virus by buying HUNDREDS of Lysol disinfectant wipes from Costco & then inflating prices on Amazon by as much as 400% [Source: https://www.toronto.com/news-story/9908476-they-bought-up-lysol-wipes-and-resold-them-online-for-a-profit-now-amazon-has-blocked-their-account/]

Now, my whole point of pointing these peoples’ actions out is NOT so much to judge them (or shame them into DONATING said supplies to churches, nursing homes and hospitals). It’s to visually showcase what happens in society when GREED and PANIC take over during a NATIONAL CRISES! (Thanks to all the “hoarding price gougers” out there, these are some of the shelves gracing America, today):

OUT OF STOCK 2

Grocery store, March 12 AND 13, OUT OF STOCK

OUT OF STOCK 3

Walmart, March 13, 2020, OUT OF STOCK

Double bare shelves, OUT OF STOCK 2020

First of all, how did the stores and its employees NOT notice people carrying out the supplies BY THE HANDFULS? (It’s one thing to take 3-10 of something for one’s large family and/or one’s elderly at-risk neighbors and the like. But HUNDREDS? THOUSANDS?) Did they BRIBE the cashiers at all? There needs to be some more investigation into HOW this happened, exactly! Also: We might need some new laws that “ration out” supplies to keep this very thing from happening AND that prosecute people who “price gouge” during a national emergency!

But that fact aside, it’s fairly common (and expected) during a NORMAL crises (an upcoming hurricane, blizzard, snow storm) for people to stock up on supplies if they think they’re gonna be holed in for awhile in their homes. But the U.S. nation has NEVER, EVER (as far as my knowledge goes, anyways) run out of stock EN MASSE, NATION-WIDE, ALL AT ONCE, SIMULTANEOUSLY! Folks, this is just during a “virus outbreak”. Can you IMAGINE what things will be like during THE GREAT EVENT that supercedes and/or actually USHERS *IN* THE MARK OF THE BEAST/THE MARK OF THE BEAST GLOBAL SOCIETY?

Which brings me to my next point. Jesus is SHOWING US, EN MASSE, about what “panic” and “greed” looks like during a time of national crises! In fact, the hoarding price gougers? Jesus is showing all of US a visual example of what OUR HEARTS are like when WE decide to HOARD SUPPLIES (even if it’s just 10 of something for OURSELVES!) On the most deepest, spiritual level of our HEARTS, it doesn’t really matter if we HOARD 10 or 50,000 of something, hoarding is hoarding!

(NOTE: I’m currently told that HOSPITALS and DOCTOR’S OFFICES are now short on supplies due to the HOARDING of others! HOW DREADFUL! And not only that but some HOSPITALS THEMSELVES have bought up and hoarded all the supplies to the point that other hospitals don’t have enough supplies! SAD!!!!)

Here in America, we (as a whole) have FORSAKEN GOD! We’re a nation of liars, sodomites, whores, murderers (i.e. abortion), materialists, atheists, Satanists, thieves, panickers, hoarders, blasphemers (i.e. a person naturally born as a man saying they are “not truly” a man or vice versa and/or repeatedly saying the Lord’s name in vain, etc.), drunkards, fornicators, mockers, scoffers, lukewarmers (i.e. “I believe in Jesus, sure. So that automatically means I’m going to heaven, I don’t have to obey the commandments“, etc.), LOVERS OF SIN/UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, and the list goes on.

And just how long did WE think (as a nation) that Jesus would put up with all of that? Just how long? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? I can tell you right now that his anger has reached a BOILING POINT! (Note: Even the most nicest, quietest, loving, docile Christian will have their BOILING POINT of anger where they just go off on someone if made angry enough! And so it is with God! Please remember that we were made in HIS image! So if WE have OUR own BOILING POINT of anger, what makes us think (as individual Christians and as a NATION) that Jesus/God also doesn’t have HIS own BOILING POINT of anger?)

I blame ALOT of America’s sins (both individual and nation-wide, as a whole) on DISPENSATIONALISM! Now, for those of you who are NOT “in the know”, what ever does that word MEAN? Answer: It’s the very word used to describe the LUKEWARM spiritual attitude of: The Old Testament was meant for the Jews. Only the NEW Testament is meant for Christians“.

THAT, by definition, is dispensationalism. For to DISPENSE something means to TAKE IT APART, TO **SCATTER**, TO PUT IT IN PARTS OR SECTIONS. And we KNOW from the holy scriptures that God does not change nor do his laws change! In fact, we will STILL be following his Old Testament FEASTS (i.e. The Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) in NEW JERUSALEM!

Therefore, I submit to you today that God’s law were meant for ALL OF TIME (Genesis through Revelation 22) and not just during “Jewish biblical times!” In short, we (as a nation) AND as individuals have BROKEN GOD’S LAW! And so naturally, Jesus’s patience with us (as individuals and as a NATION) has WORN THIN! Think about when we were younger and we “disobeyed” our parents and so our parents got “angry” and “disappointed” with us and “sent us to our rooms!” So it is with Jesus and the current state of events! Many U.S. states are now going on LOCKDOWN and several people are now “holed up” in their homes for a couple of weeks if not more!

But there’s also another thing we must realize. EVEN in Jesus’s anger, Jesus is oftentimes GRACIOUS. Read any bit in the Old Testament and you will start to see a bigger picture. When God was “mad” at the Israelites, he “smote them” in order to PROTECT THEM FROM FURTHER DAMAGE TO THEMSELVES!

God did that out of LOVE for the Jewish people! God promised them REPEATEDLY, on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, that IF they repented and turned BACK to HIM, that HE would HAVE MERCY ON THEM *AND* HEAL THEIR LAND! (i.e. 2 Chronicles 7:14!) And so that’s EXACTLY what’s going on here, NOW! God is ANGRY with us (as a nation), yet, he STILL loves us (as a nation), which is WHY he’s bringing about events to WAKE US UP, SPIRITUALLY, to DRAW US BACK TO HIM, and to MAKE US REPENT OF OUR EVIL WAYS!

Another aspect is that Jesus is teaching us NOT TO TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED! Admit it……how many of us (myself included, even) have taken things for granted in our lives (i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, Lysol/Clorox/cleaning products, food, American “freedom”, movie theaters, restaurants, shopping outlets, JESUS HIMSELF, bottled water, family, coworkers, neighbors, jobs, etc.?)

But now that those things are HARD TO COME BY and are NOT GUARANTEED, we Americans (and those around the world) tend to appreciate those things more (in retrospect), am I right? But even worse YET: imagine a world WITHOUT Jesus in it! Imagine a world where there was NO LAW, NO ORDER, NOTHING BUT CHAOS! In retrospect, it makes the “dwindling supplies” and “home quarantines” seem like a walk in the park! (No pun intended).

Therefore, Jesus is showing us a PREVIEW (just a mere PREVIEW) of what a world without him would be like! And the long-term picture of that is NOT PRETTY! You not only have greedy price gougers but you have OTHER buyers as well: PANIC BUYERS!

As soon as Trump announced a national emergency on Friday, March 13, 2020 (just 3 months TO THE DAY from China announcing in media ITS first case of Corona virus), people panicked! Stuff started FLYING off the shelves! First, it was toilet paper! Then it was paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, cleaners and everything else in between! People were loading up their carts with 2, 4, 6 or 8+ items! Retail workers were spread thin and had to deal with angry, panicked customers that circled them LIKE VULTURES! And like many doctors and nurses, THEY are on the “front lines” and are “most exposed” to anyone who might have the virus!

And just a few hours after Trump declared an emergency, the shelves were becoming BARE! And then the people who REALLY needed stuff (i.e. elderly, hospitals, etc.) were NOT able to get them! It was such a sad, chaotic site! People had to start going from store to store at the crack of dawn or whenever the store opened and go there day after day after day, just to see if the trucks came in! (i.e. It really sucks when you have to worry about WHEN you’re gonna be able to buy disinfectant wipes, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.!)

But one thing is true: we live in a dog eat dog world and EACH individual family/person is only most likely to be looking out for themselves! Sad but true! JESUS WOULD CRY BITTER, BITTER TEARS IF HE WERE TO SEE HOW PEOPLE (AS A WHOLE) WERE GREEDILY TREATING ONE ANOTHER TODAY!

(And lets face it, how many darn rolls of toilet paper or cans of Lysol does a person truly need, anyways? And believe me, that question goes just as much for MYSELF as anyone else! I’ll admit that in the VERY beginning of the crises, I myself did a very small part of panic buying to help me & my elderly neighbors. But then the Lord CONVICTED me on such measures and I realized that PANIC does NOT equal FAITH! We must have FAITH! For if the Lord provided for the ANCIENT nation of Israel in THEIR time of need, what makes anyone think that He also can’t do so during OUR time of need – provided we still come at him with a humble, repentant, appreciative HEART? It stands to reason!)

IF you have an elderly neighbor or neighbors, or anyone around you who is poor/in-need or immune-compromised (i.e. has cancer or is a most recent cancer survivor and/or has another underlying medical condition), then please, please, PLEASE create a care package for those people and SHARE YOUR SUPPLIES! Because not only does Jesus call us to “love our neighbor as ourself”, but THAT person may be the one who ends up helping US someday if/when WE are in a “jam”, of sorts! (But again, please remember to properly SANITIZE everything before giving to the elderly/immune-compromised and do NOT give them supplies if YOU have been having a cold, cough, fever (even if only a low-grade fever) or breathing problems lately! Because remember, you’re trying to PREVENT the risk for them, NOT increase it by your OWN cold or sickness!) 

Plus a THIRD thing to remember is that we’re ALL gonna be JUDGED someday! We’re all gonna be judged for every word, thought, deed and action! So do you REALLY want to be ETERNALLY JUDGED by Jesus as “GREEDY STEVE” or “GREEDY SUSAN” or “FAITHLESS, FOREVER-PANICKING SHAUN OR JESSICA” at the time in your mortal life on Earth when your less-fortunate neighbors were in THEIR time of need? Me thinks NOT!

Fourthly, we must have F A I T H !

Hebrews 11:16 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. 

James 2:14 “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?”

James 2:17-22Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?”

So in other words, faith + works seems to be MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE! You can’t have one without the other! For if you have FAITH, you need to SHOWCASE that faith to Jesus! Cause otherwise, what’s the point? Think of all the prophets of Old in the Old Testament. NONE of them had faith without works! NOT ONE! And WHY is that, do you think? Likewise, take Paul for example. He had ENORMOUS faith! But if he hadn’t of put that faith INTO ACTION, it all would’ve been for NOTHING! Cause afterall, what’s the POINT of having a FAITH in Jesus if you don’t plan to put that faith INTO ACTION? You might as well pack up your Christian bags and go home if you don’t personally plan on turning your faith into works!

And now, let us examine the EXACT OPPOSITE! Lets say you’re doing righteous works (giving to those in need, etc.) but yet, you DON’T have the FAITH that your works are pleasing to God and/or DON’T have the FAITH that your works are necessary, needed, are making a difference, etc? What would be the POINT of doing those works if you believed it made no difference and HAD no true, spiritual value?

Think about it! A lack of faith makes those “works” for NAUGHT, for NOTHING! However…….IF you have FAITH *PLUS* WORKS, you become likened unto Abraham, who was called a “friend of God!” Why? Because IN your works, you faith is PERFECTED and comes FULL CIRCLE!

For think about it a bit. If Abraham had the faith that God would resurrect his son, yet, DIDN’T offer up Isaac on an altar, (i.e. if Abraham had faith WITHOUT works), what would’ve been the POINT of Abraham’s faith? That would’ve been like Abraham saying or knowing that God had the FULL ABILITY to make Isaac become resurrected, yet, not even LETTING the perfection of faith happen THROUGH his (Abraham’s) works. That would be like one of us saying today: Jesus, I know you have the POWER to do x, y and z, so I don’t even have to ask! What’s the POINT in that, folks? If we want something, we have to trust Jesus AND we have to ask! Otherwise, the Lord Jesus will have nothing to give us in return! Think about it!

Works without faith would’ve been like an ancient Israelite fleeing the Egyptians across the Red Sea saying: “Ok God, I’ll walk across the dryshod by the Red Sea. I don’t REALLY believe you’ll keep the waves at bay AS I walk across, but I’m just gonna blindly walk across here and worryingly hope for the best”.

But yet, faith WITH works would say: “Jesus, I KNOW you have the power to keep the sea waves at bay while I and the rest of the Israelite nation walk across the dryshod. I’m gonna trust you every step of the way and KNOW that you will protect me every precious step of the way. Praise your heavenly and mighty name! Amen”. Notice the difference there, folks?

In scenario #1 and #2, there’s faith without works and works without faith. But in scenario #3, there’s faith PLUS works and/or faith being perfected/showcased THROUGH works! Is that making any sense, folks? I’ve tried to explain it the best way I can and the best way I know how.

But here is where I get into the nitty gritty of things: PANIC BUYING SHOWS A LACK OF FAITH! Remember when the Hebrew Israelites were stranded out in the desert for their “disobedience” and “lack of faith?” God had just done a MOST AMAZING miracle where he PARTED THE RED SEA and TOOK THEM OUT OF EGYPT! And they sung songs of praise (The Song of Moses) and were all happy when they stopped at a place called ELIM (a place said to have 12 springs and 70 PALMS, according to the bible; God was ‘rewarding” them for their PRAISE OF HIM, it seems….However, I think God was worried that if they stayed at “ELIM” (the “place of Oasis”) TOO LONG, that they would just as soon FORGET HIM again and think that they “didn’t need him anymore since everything was fine!”

And don’t quote me on this but I’m almost willing to bet that God felt “unsure” about the true state of their spiritual HEARTS at that time. He was likely thinking among himself rather or not their faith was “genuine” or merely “conditional” (i.e. seeing is believing sort’ve thing). Therefore, he likely reasoned with himself (and possibly his angels?) at that moment in time that it would be wise (and fair and just, even) to TEST THEM and to TEST THEIR HEART/FAITH! But in order to do that, He knew he’d have to send them AWAY from “ELIM”……away to a place that was BARREN with NO WATER, just to SEE if they trusted in HIM and HIM ALONE (The God of Israel) to PROVIDE!

And that’s sort’ve what I see happening with today’s society, TODAY! When all the conservative/Christian/patriotic people in our land cried out for an American-loving president who would help SAVE OUR JOBS, OUR ECONOMY, OUR COUNTRY and our RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, in walked President Trump! And when evil TRIED to wax worse and worse in this country and GET RID of Trump, with the heartfelt prayers of many born-again Christians, Trump PREVAILED against all clamour and all opposition! It was unlike anything I’d ever SEEN! I simply KNEW that was from the Lord above and NO OTHER REASON!

However, here’s the clincher: America has been in our “ELIM” for TOO LONG! For the past 3 years or so, we’ve had it AMAZINGLY GOOD here in America! Our military, our economy, our stocks, our jobs, our religious liberty and/or patriotism was at an ALL-TIME HIGH! In the past 2 years alone, Christians have become LACKLUSTER and LUKEWARM! Why? Because with Trump and Pence in office and the economy doing EXTREMELY well, there was (many felt) no longer a need for JESUS!

“America’s good, the economy’s good, jobs are good, so what do we need God for?” seemed to become the attitude of MANY! And it started off so subtle: David Daleiden & Sandra Merrit were charged for recording members of Planned Parenthood without their knowledge, Alex Jones was taken off the air, Christian businesses were SUED/SHUT DOWN for going against the LGBT “mafia”, etc. And those few events put ALOT of fear into Christian’s souls: “If those things can happen to THOSE Christians, then just what’s gonna happen to ME if *I* share too much about Jesus on Facebook or other social media?” many feared. And so it began. Instead of The Great Awakening, it became The Dreadful LUKEWARMING. And the hedonistic left couldn’t be any the happier! For finally, in THEIR hedonistic eyes, they had WON! They had (as a whole) overtaken the Christians and HIJACKED THE CULTURE!

Many Christians found that disheartening and got really, really discouraged, almost practically giving up, due to how evil the world is, today! However, in the past 6 months or so, there’s been some slight spiritual revival and pushback! Again, due to the DILIGENT prayers of the born-again Christians in this country and around the world, the left FINALLY saw some pushback! And when this pushback received a few GREAT VICTORIES for Christians in this country and around the world, the praising of God/Jesus didn’t last too long!

For once again, AFTER those short great victories, the Christians (as a whole) once again let things go to their head, once again put Jesus on the back burner as they went about their daily lives and once again FORSOOK HIM! That’s when Jesus and the heavenly council in heaven decided they had NO CHOICE but to SHAKE THINGS UP IN THIS COUNTRY (AND OTHER COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD) IN ORDER TO DRASTICALLY GET OUR ATTENTION!

Let us now turn back to the story of the Israelites out in the desert for 40 years. AFTER they left “Elim”, guess what happened? They were taken to a place with NO WATER and IMMEDIATELY began to GRIPE AND COMPLAIN to Moses (a foreshadowing of Jesus, of sorts) ABOUT the lack of water and accused God of “sending them out there to DIE!” That was a pretty tall and severe accusation, back in ancient biblical times! And God did NOT take that one lightly!

Imagine if you, a parent, made a most amazing meal for your child and they talked about how delicious it was and how much they appreciated it. The next day, around the same time you made the previous day’s meal, you didn’t make the meal right away but instead were waiting on the child to politely WAIT on you or politely ask you to make one. And what a good, blessed meal you wanted to make them! But instead of waiting and trusting you and/or POLITELY asking you to make one, your child just griped, yelled, complained, threw a fit and immediately accused you of wanting to starve them to death (literally, not figuratively!) Imagine how you would FEEL!

If God had truly wanted to kill the Israelites, he could’ve drowned them in the sea WITH the Egyptians but he didn’t. Why? Because his goal was to SAVE them, not CONDEMN THEM! (“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” – John 3:17)

We are at such a place NOW in our lives, folks! We are at that crossroads where we’re gonna have to decide (not only individually but as a NATION): Are we gonna turn back from our sins (as individuals AND as a nation) and TRUST GOD or are we gonna keep DEFYING GOD and decide to PERMANENTLY AND IRREPARABLY invite GOD’S WRATH upon our nation (and possibly upon the world) instead? We’ve NEVER, EVER, EVER been at a more CRITICAL time in our world’s and nation’s history!

So in conclusion, here are the FIVE things I’ve touched on so far in this post: FAITH, REPENTANCE, TRUST OF JESUS, PRAISING OF JESUS and WORKS! If you lack ANY of these FIVE, ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE (Matthew 7:7-8 states: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”). 

Now……what about those people who have lost their jobs and/or their homes so far? What’s in store for THEM, you may ask? Well, we can turn to the bible for the answers:

  • In the Old Testament, we read about a guy named Job (pronounced Yobe). He was a rich servant of God. Satan said to God that the ONLY reason Job was a good faithful servant is BECAUSE he was rich. So Satan challenged God to take away all that Job had, in order to see rather or not Job would curse God in the process. In the end, Job learned to TRUST GOD and he regained TEN-FOLD what he had lost!
  • In the New Testament, we read a parable that JESUS told about THE PRODIGAL SON. The youngest of the TWO brothers wanted his inheritance early and went out and spent it all. He ended up sweeping up pig poop for a living and eating the scraps the pigs left behind. Suddenly realizing his “condition”, he determined to go back to his father as a “hired servant”, telling his father he was “wrong”. But upon seeing him from a distance, his father RAN to meet him and embrace him and put fine clothes and linen on him and had a feast of homecoming for him!

Therefore, what can we gather and GLEAN from those two situations? In the FIRST scenario, the prophet Job decides to PRAISE GOD IN GOOD TIMES *AND* IN BAD TIMES, realizing that God is SOVEREIGN and ONLY takes away something from someone if he thinks that person can glean SPIRITUAL ENDURANCE and SPIRITUAL GROWTH from it. And WHEN Job praised God (even amongst all clamour and opposition), he received back TENFOLD what he lost!

Therefore, his “riches” became TEN times greater AFTER trusting God through it all! And in the 2ND scenario, the poor son LOST EVERYTHING (EVERY PENNY) and was forced to work in the LOWEST OF LOW OCCUPATIONS. However, as soon as he REPENTED and came back home to his father, he was DILIGENTLY REWARDED!

So what do we learn from all of this? IT PAYS TO TRUST IN THE LORD! NO MATTER WHAT! No matter how bad it gets, you are NEVER ALONE and you are NEVER out of the reach of Almighty God, so remember that, people! Remember also HOW MUCH the Israelites were blessed EVERY single time they TRUSTED GOD but also how they were CURSED or TESTED every time they did NOT trust God or FULLY trust God!

For example, even though MOSES trusted God – for the first few seconds, even Moses HIMSELF was probably thinking something along the lines of: Cast my stick towards the Deep Red Sea? But what if the ENTIRE SEA turns into a big, gigantic SNAKE MONSTER? What then? – my guess is that the majority of the Israelites did NOT or only PARTIALLY trusted God at best, during the Red Sea crossing. They likely had the attitude of: Well, MAYBE this will work out and we’ll be protected, who knows, really?

In other words, they had a half-hearted FAITH! There’s no doubt in my mind that the Lord blessed the nation of Israel at “ELIM” on the ACCOUNT of Moses’s faith during the Red Sea crossing! Just like there’s now no doubt in my mind that the good Lord has previously blessed our nation of America (and other nations around the world) on ACCOUNT of the diligent prayers (AND FAITH) of His faithful ones! But when the Israelites came to the next stop and there was NO WATER, that’s where the TRUE TESTING OF THEIR HEARTS BEGAN!

Therefore, America (and other countries around the world) have HAD their fair share of experiencing “ELIM”. NOW is the TIME OF TESTING! Only, the difference is, THIS IS THE LAST STOP! This is the LAST MAJOR TEST before THE GREAT EVENT that’ll quickly super-cede or USHER IN THE ANTICHRIST/Mark of the Beast/New World Order Society!

So therefore, HOW we act at THIS TIME (as individuals AND as a nation) will determine the FINAL OUTCOME! Will we TURN BACK TO JESUS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS before it’s too late, REPENTING of all our SINS (individually AND nationally) or will we CONTINUE to DEFY JESUS and his commands (as individuals and as a nation) and INVOKE GOD’S COMPLETE WRATH UPON OUR NATION, ONCE AND FOR ALL? Only time will tell.

While I don’t know what sins you need to repent of as an INDIVIDUAL (that’s between you and Jesus), I DO know all the SINS that America MUST REPENT OF, AS A NATION: (NOTE: many things on this “list” of national sins can apply to other countries of the world, too, such as “abortion and the lobbying/funding for it”, “euthanasia”, “LGBT sodomy”, etc.)

Transgender & Drag Queen Promotion/Affirmation IN Children = CHILD ABUSE!!!

Most recently, there’s been TWO famous cases of so-called “transgendered children”, as well as TWO famous cases of “child drag queens”. But before we go any further into this, what exactly is “transgender” and/or a “child drag queen” and how did it start to become so widespread in today’s world and society?

“Transgender” is defined as feeling as though one is the opposite gender one was “born with”. However, the DSM-V defines it as a mental illness called “gender dysphoria”. Basically, that means that a person so-called doesn’t identify with the gender they were “born with” (i.e. a naturally-born male so-called doesn’t feel “male”, while a naturally-born female so-called doesn’t feel “female”).

And a “child drag queen” is a boy that likes to dress up in “girl” or “women” costumes and make-up.

Okay, now that we have the “definitions” out of the way, I’d like to talk about FOUR famous cases of Transgender and/or Child Drag Queen “promotion” and “affirmation” (by secular parents/society) in children under 18 (and the obvious long-lasting consequences it’s had on all four of them!) They are as follows:

  • ***James Damon Younger***
  • ***Desmond Napoles***
  • ***Lactatia***
  • “Jazz” Jennings

Lets start with the case of ***James Damon Younger***. His parents were going through a divorce. His mom had 2 daughters (from a previous relationship/marriage?), while his mom and dad had him and his fraternal twin brother, Jude. As soon as he and his brother Jude were 3 years old, the pediatrician mom (who worked 60-80 hours a week while his dad Jeff, was a stay-at-home dad) decided that “James is a girl” and should go by the name “Luna” (which is Spanish for “moon”, by the way).

The father (a born-again Christian?) REFUSED to “affirm” James as a “girl”. The father instead wanted to “affirm” James as a BOY (the gender he was BORN AS!) So what does the mother do? She “affirms” James as a GIRL, enrolls him in school as a GIRL, and ONLY lets him wear girl’s clothes!

HOWEVER…..when he goes to his dad’s house these days (his parents divorce has now already been finalized), his father gives him a choice if he wants to dress up as a boy or girl and the boy, James, ALWAYS decides to dress up as a BOY! The father Jeff even says James VIOLENTLY refuses to wear girl clothes around his dad and INSISTS that he is, in fact, a BOY! But yet, the father is NOT the ONLY one who’s noticed that James likes being a boy! Others have noticed it as well!

But anyways, the mother now (as far as my understanding goes) wants to strip Jeff (James’s father) of practically ALL parental & custodial rights. And not only that, but she’s now taken their 6-year old son James to see a “gender-transition counselor” and wants James to start taking hormones as early as 8 YEARS OLD! 8 YEARS OLD, FOLKS! This is NO JOKE!

But yet, if you dig back through the parents’ marital history, as evidenced on the site www.savejames.com, it’s blatantly OBVIOUS to me that James’s mother, as well as many mothers out there like her, are under SEVERE DEMONIC ATTACK!

And not only that but James DOES NOT fit ANY of the “gender dysphoria” criteria! He does not persistently insist that he’s a girl. If anything, he consistency insists THE OPPOSITE! (Except when he’s around his mom, ironically enough). When he was just 3 years old, his mother (a “pediatrician”) told him that he was “really a girl” and started dressing him up as such. (JUST WHAT WAS/IS GOING THROUGH THIS MOTHER’S MIND!!!????)

Though something tells me that if James “backs out” of this whole “Luna” thing, then the mother will likely start in on his brother Jude and try to get JUDE to “transition to a girl”. There is no doubt a DEMONIC SPIRIT that’s over-taking that mother right now. I really feel in the depths of my spirit that “the spirit” living inside the HEART of that mother is just doing all this to hurt the (born-again Christian?) father! She wants to take ALL custody rights away from him! ALL! Not some but ALL! And HERE’S the kicker: SHE’S NOT EVEN *BIOLOGICALLY RELATED* TO THE SON JAMES IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM! (Her and Mr. Younger, the father, had used an EGG DONOR!)

In fact, she even got (or tried?) to take out a RESTRAINING ORDER against the father for “daring to question” his son James’s desire to be a so-called “girl”. And during the trial testimony, she had FIVE LAWYERS to the father’s ONE lawyer and PAYED people to testify! Is that even LEGAL….? To PAY someone to testify? (That’s why we must PRAY for this woman! We must PRAY for this woman to see the light of Jesus before it’s too late!) 

But yeah, in a nutshell, that is what this liberal/secular world has now come to, folks! If you’re part of a marital union, and your SPOUSE wants your kid to be transgender and YOU don’t, good luck! The liberal courts will likely side with your “liberal” SPOUSE and not YOU! Or if your kid decides on their OWN that they’re transgender and you and your spouse IN UNISON don’t support that notion, there’s a chance your kid will be taken away from you by Child Protective Services!

Welcome to the “New World”, folks! I never thought I’d LIVE to see the day when these types of things would start to happen! But over time, court cases like this are going to start becoming more & more frequent, so brace yourselves! This is DEFINITELY part of what I callThe Ephesians 6:12/Isaiah 5:20 WARS!”

That being said, I really do NOT feel in my heart & soul that James wants to be a girl. I think he feels perfectly normal (as a naturally-born boy) and at ease with his dad. Why? Because for the most part, his mother worked 60-80 hours a week while his father RAISED HIM! Every boy needs his father! So why is his mother trying to take him and his brother away from their dad, PEREMANTELY? That’s just CRAZY! And as far as I can see, it’s NOT due to ANY type of physical abuse or what have ya, it’s SOLELY based on the fact that Jeff, the dad, will NOT “affirm” his son James as a “girl”, that’s the bottom line!

But this is a VERY heart-breaking case and I pray in Jesus’s name that James will NOT be forced to undergo “transgender therapy” against his will. (I also pray for healing & restoration for the ENTIRE Young family!) We should let boys be boys, and girls be girls; let women be women and let men be men. Whatever happened to that, folks? 20 years ago, the word “transgender” didn’t even exist! The world actually made sense back then. The world of 2018 and beyond? It’s no doubt BECAUSE we’re living in the Last Days talked about in bible prophecy. And like I said, if you think things are bad NOW – brace yourself – because it’s going to get alot WORSE!

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

Now lets go to the unique cases of Desmond Napoles (“Desmond Is Amazing”) and Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden (“Lactatia”). Desmond – from New York – is ONLY 11-12 years old, while Nemis – from Montreal, Canada – is ONLY 9-10 years old!

Not sure about Nemis but Desmond suffers from “autism”. And both of their stories are very similar. Both of their mothers began to “affirm” their sons as “child drag queens” from VERY early ages! (And like it or not, these young mothers THEMSELVES have already been “indoctrinated” into the trans/drag queen agenda LONG before their babies were ever born, so THINK about that for a moment….)

Remember about how “society” has been these past several years. It’s transgender this, transgender that. Drag queen this, drag queen that. So is it then any WONDER that some of these young children today are psychologically “tricked” into thinking they’re transgender and/or drag queens? Even many liberal grade-school teachers are now trying to “indoctrinate” children with “transgenderism/drag queen madness”:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/transgender-indoctrination-of-young-children-is-coming

We all like to solely blame THE PARENTS of these “transgender and/or drag queen children”. But folks, we got to remember something, here: The PARENTS (the “gate-keeper” of the child) are just AS demonically & spiritually deceived (if not even MORE SO) than the “transgendered/drag queen child” is! Because think about this: if THE PARENTS weren’t already spiritually deceived TO BEGIN WITH, they would’ve had the foresight and the wisdom to be able to recognize that “transgenderism/drag queenism” should NOT be encouraged in ANY child under 18 and also that natural-born gender (in and of ITSELF) is a *true gift from God!* (GOD DOESN’T MAKE MISTAKES, FOLKS! NO MATTER HOW THE LIBERAL MEDIA TRIES TO SPIN IT!) 

Many psychologists agree that young children occasionally being “curious” about what it’s like to be the opposite gender or occasionally playing with opposite-gender toys is “normal”. In other words, it’s just an “innocent phase”. So when you have a boy child that DEMANDS he’s a girl or a girl child that DEMANDS she’s a boy, it’s really nothing more than just a “rebellious” male or female child who doesn’t want to mind their parents! Think about it for a bit, really, truly think about it….

(And the spirit of “rebellion”, like it or not, is actually a DEMONIC SPIRIT that’s attempting to RULE OVER THE CHILD and the child’s thoughts/mind/behavior!) And SO when parents “cave” and “give in” to this “rebellious madness”, (either by means of a “therapist” who encourages them to “roll with it”, or by their own need for *societal affirmation*), that then allows the child (or rather, the demonic spirit working inside the MIND of the child) to WALK ALL OVER THEM……….**FOR LIFE!**

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? It gives rise to the “I want, I want, I want” phenomena, does it NOT? And it NEVER STOPS! It’s almost like some of these parents have come to actually FEAR their own children and FEAR disciplining them and telling them NO! They then just give the child WHATEVER they want and that does NOT bode well for the child later on in life, MARK MY WORDS!

I’ve noticed that neither of Desmond’s parents work for a living (apparently). And that’s probably the case with Nemis’s parents as well (his mother and his step-dad). Are BOTH sets of parents using their children as a “paycheck” to make ends meet? Only the Lord knows. But I’m worried about just what types of lessons that’s teaching their respective child! That if they go out in drag and “strut themselves” in front of grown men, that they can make a “nice paycheck?” Because trust me folks, that’s NOT the type of lesson that us parents should be teaching our children!

But lets look further into the case of 11-year old Desmond Napoles. Did you know he was most recently allowed to “dance” at a “GAY BAR” and actually had grown men throwing MONEY at him? Yes, it’s true……..

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39409/11-year-old-boy-dressed-drag-dances-gay-men-bar-amanda-prestigiacomo

And if not already so, I can imagine that 10-year old “Lactatia” won’t be too far behind in those types of “endeavors”. in fact, just TODAY (1/15/2019), I came across THIS sickening article, concerning Nemis, in which he’s dressed in drag, posing with a fully nude adult male: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/10-year-old-boy-poses-in-drag-with-nude-man-how-is-this-not-child-porn

This is both HEART-WRENCHING & GROTESQUE, FOLKS! WHERE ARE THE PARENTS, HERE? WHY ARE THEY NOT IN THE PROCESS OF *BEING* THE PROTECTIVE GATE-KEEPERS OF THEIR CHILDREN? DO THEY HONESTLY NOT *CARE* THAT THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN ARE BEING *SEXUALLY EXPLOITED* BY GROWN MEN? I mean, these are PRE-TEENS we’re talking about here, folks!!!!!!

(And OBVIOUSLY, both Nemis and Desmond have been/are being sexually groomed by someone……because NO normal young boy will “act out” that way UNLESS they’re being sexually groomed by someone……think about it, folks!) If a young girl were posing for a photograph with a fully nude adult male in the background AND the picture was posted in a magazine, in the news or on social media, OR a young girl was provocatively dressed and went to a “lesbian bar” and strutted her body, having GROWN female women THROWING MONEY AT **HER**, there would be NATIONAL OUTRAGE and the “perp(s)” would swiftly be arrested, carted off to prison and likely attacked by fellow inmates before they even settled into their cell!

Yet…….according to today’s LIBERAL CULTURE, it’s PERFECTLY “OK” (in a “transgendered boy’s” case) for a fully nude ADULT male to pose RIGHT BEHIND/BESIDES the “transgender boy” for a widely-circulated photograph? Just like a trasgender “boy” is perfectly “OK” to get money thrown at in a gay bar? OUTRAGEOUS! I wonder what took place before/after the photo shoot and before/after the “gay bar dancing”. Do THEY (the parents) even know? See folks, that’s the problem! These two sets of parents of these two young boys are CLEARLY not protecting them from potential male adult predators the way they should!

Even though both “claim” to accompany them to “events” and “photo shoots”, it’ll only be a matter of time before they DON’T – either because the parents will eventually become “too trusting” of the male adult drag queens OR because their child himself will demand to be left alone with the adult male drag queens – and what, THEN? These parents (as well as their precious children) are under SEVERE DEMONIC DECEPTION and I pray that Jesus opens up their eyes before it’s too late! How my heart just absolutely breaks for these poor, precious, innocent children! 

The Christian Post also did an article on the subject: https://www.christianpost.com/news/how-should-christians-respond-child-drag-queens-sexualizing-kids.html

As did The Federalist:

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

Now let us turn to the case of “Jazz” Jennings. Interestingly enough, HIS TV show entitled “I am Jazz” premiered on July 15, 2015, just a mere three weeks TO THE DAY from the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court “gay marriage decision!” Coincidence? Only the Lord knows!  

It is reported that “Jazz” (who’s real name is reportedly Jared Bloshinsky – “Jennings” is a pseudonym) has now had the full top AND bottom surgery. [Granted, he’s now 18 years old but the whole entire “transgender affirmation” began much, much earlier in his life, as early as 5 years old!!!] He had top surgery and most recently, he had bottom surgery. 

However, he experienced “complications” during the bottom surgery, which required him to go for a second (mutilating) surgery! The doctors more or less stated they now “hope for the best”. HOPE FOR THE BEST? This is a precious 18-year old child we’re talking about, here! What if he had internal bleeding or some other major form of complications from the whole thing? What then

But nevermind all that. Lets just look at the whole story, in and of itself. From an early age, Jared look up to his older sister (and very possibly envied her). He wanted to dress in her clothes, play with HER toys, sleep in HER bed…….it’s almost like he wanted to BECOME HER!

Not to mention that the doctor said he’ll likely NEVER be able to naturally have children, someday. EVER! To us, from the outside looking in, that may not seem like a big deal. But in traditional Jewish culture (Jared and his family are Jewish), naturally having children – i.e. a family – is EVERYTHING! So imagine how personally (secretly?) devastating that must feel to him if he’s not able to naturally have children, someday.

And not only that but we can see from interviews, etc, (from the outside looking in, etc.), that Jared is extremely depressed! And confused. And not only that but on a clip for his TV show, he mentioned that it had been typically hard for him to find someone to date, specifically male. (It’s because most straight guys (as a whole) inherently KNOW – that someone can not biologically change their gender!) UPDATE: He now has a “boyfriend” but that’s really not gonna make anything better for him in the long run. It’s just eventually gonna make this whole “mess” of a situation even worse (over time!) 

But one more thing I’d like to mention here is that the LONG-TERM effects of hormones are NOT known……but I definitely think that ONE of the effects is that it possibly stunts emotional/mental maturity! Because now-18 year old Jared is quoted as saying that he LOVES making his dad uncomfortable. And on a clip during the show, he was seen asking his dad questions that only a 10 or 12 year would ask. Things such as: “Have you actually seen mom’s ________? What do you think of the shape of mom’s ______?” 

And not only that, but there’s also this sweet aura of “innocence” about him (as with the other 3 children in this post). Which makes me wonder if maybe somebody else (or something else – i.e. Satan) BEHIND the curtain, had been mentally programming them or pre-conditioning them ALL ALONG to think they’re a “girl”/”drag queen” from a very early age. Obviously not wanting anything to do with one’s normal, biological body has a “mental/psychological basis” (and if you ask me, a HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE BASIS!)

Jared’s parents (kudos to them for this) took him to a “therapist” when he was little to try to determine what was going on, but it was the THERAPIST that told them to “roll with it”. So we can see that many of the parents’ spiritual deceptions BEGAN with the therapist’s spiritual deception! Ofcourse, in Orthdox Jewish belief, they believe that God is both male AND female – so, as inititally troubled as they might’ve possibly felt at first, that might help explain WHY the parents took the therapist’s advice to just “roll with it”, instead of seeking a 2nd or 3rd opinion. 

[[January 302019 Update: Jared now has *a boyfriend* – and will undoubtedly STILL be seen by God as a “homosexual” MAN who is committing the sin of “same-sex sodomy”. His “cosmetically changing genders” – won’t change that fact! But yet, here’s THE MOST HEARTBREAKING thing of all, about this entire situation! They recently had a “penis cake” that they cut up and served in order to “celebrate Jazz’s full transition”, they said! OH HOW MY SOUL GRIEVES FOR THIS POOR YOUNG BOY – A BOY WHO IS **SO SPIRITUALLY DECIEVED** by Satan that it’s not even funny! What a sad, sad day in America, INDEED!!!]]

But again, there’s SEVERAL questions, here. What’s gonna happen once the “I am Jazz” show ends and Jared is forced to face reality? HE has suffered severe depression and stress all throughout the show. But instead of someone close to him taking a further, deeper look into it, it was pre-maturely concluded: “Oh, it must be because he hasn’t yet had the full surgery”. 

But folks, know THIS: When 5-10 some years go by, and when REALITY FULLY SINKS IN and he likely STILL doesn’t feel completely 100% satisfied, (him having “the boyfriend” is only a TEMPORARY distraction from reality for him), the blame will be shifted to all those who “don’t agree with transgenderism”. On camera, in social media, in front of others, he may “seem” like he’s happy. But in his own, personal private time (just by himself), I KNOW he’s very likely still depressed, folks! Depression isn’t something that one can beat, overnight! It takes YEARS! I hope and pray in the name of Jesus that Jared will find healing and COMPLETE restoration in Jesus Christ someday, the way that Walt Heyer did! For he won’t find it ANYWHERE ELSE, MARK MY WORDS! 

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

Walt Heyer is a person who’s GONE through a sex change, LIVED as a woman for over 10 years and then later came to regret it. He says when he was younger, his grandmother “affirmed” his “gender confusion”, while adding it was the worst possible thing she could’ve done for him as it then set Walt out on a long, lonely destructive path of self-mutilation with over 160+ surgeries……surgeries that were based on HIS feelings of “inadequacy”, etc. And those doctors made THOUSANDS of dollars, if not millions, off of him!

So what’s my point, here? My point is that “transition doctors” stand to make THOUSANDS and MILLIONS of doctors out of mutilating emotionally/psychologically unstable people! People that are “lost” (both spiritually and mentally). People that have NO IDEA who they really truly are and are on a path of self-denial/self-destruction!

Society says that that “transgender” people are “denying themselves” if they DON’T dress in opposite gender clothing and/if they DON’T get the sex change surgery. But the truth is, WHEN they dress in opposite gender clothing and WHEN/IF they get sex change surgery, they ARE, in EVERY sense of the word, TRULY denying themselves……..their TRUE biological self that GOD CREATED!

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” – Genesis 1:27

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” – Psalm 139:14

Satan likes to produce COUNTERFEITS! Therefore, ANYTHING that goes against the image of God, like it or not, IS a COUNTERFEIT! God’s image is biological male, biological female, traditional one man, one woman marriage, and traditional children as a RESULT of the one man, one woman traditional marriage!

Therefore, “gay marriage”, “homosexuality”, “gay adoption”, “abortion” and “transgenderism” were all DESIGNED by Satan in order to ANNIHILATE THE IMAGE OF GOD! ANNIHILATE! That simply means, Satan wanted to PICK APART AND **COMPLETELY DESTROY** THE IMAGE OF GOD! So in other words, they are PERVERSIONS/COUNTERFEITS of what God intended for the human race! 

Folks, we’re living in the LITERAL times of Isaiah 5:20, which states:

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” – Isaiah 5:20

We’re now living in such LIBERAL cultural times when it’s considered by many liberals to be “evil” not to “affirm” a transgender or homosexual person, it’s “evil” not to agree with “gay marriage” or abortion, just like it’s “evil” not to “affirm” your so-called “transgender child” and/or “EVIL BEYOND COMPARE” TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS, ETC.! [[[FOLKS, THIS IS SPIRITUAL MADNESS GONE WILD!]]]

So now lets go back to what Walt Heyer said about his grandmother “affirming” his gender. Something in my spirit tells me his grandmother had always secretly wanted a granddaughter. However, in spite of this, what if she had just taken him aside and gently explained to him that he was in fact, a BOY and that it was perfectly okay FOR him to be a BOY? His life might’ve turned out alot different.

He’s now happily married with a wife. However, because of all the damage he’s done “down there”, (what, with the all the mutilating surgeries and what have you), he and his wife aren’t able to have much of a marital sex life. But in fact, that’s one of the MANY long-term affects of sex changes that NOBODY is talking about……THAT and the VERY HIGH chance for infertility!

To push the “transgender thing” and/or “drag queen thing” on a teenager or full adult man or woman is bad enough. But to push it on a CHILD? ESPECIALLY a child UNDER the age of 18? WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO, FOLKS?

Please note: I am not demonizing or judging ANY of the above 4 people OR their parents! I’m just simply stating that both them AND their parents have ALL been spiritually deceived! For NO true born again Christian should be supporting things such as abortion, sodomy/homosexuality, drag queenism or transgenderism! Why? Because it goes against God’s image, God’s NATURAL order of things/God’s will, while also insinuating that God is “some sort of liar!” And folks, we simply KNOW that God’s not a liar!

“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

Folks, not ONLY is promotion of drag queenism OR transgenderism in children under 18 spiritually deceptive but it is also COMPLETE AND UTTER CHILD ABUSE! And I’m not the only one who thinks this! Here’s the words of a renown pediatrician (mother of four) who knows what she’s talking about:

Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse

The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their non-dysphoric peers.

These professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases.

Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage.

These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.

It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action.

However, it’s not JUST conservative pediatricians or psychiatrists sounding the alarm about “transgenderism” and “hormone blockers”, SEVERAL OTHERS are sounding the alarm, too! 

https://www.christianpost.com/news/values-voter-summit-panel-gender-ideology-is-large-scale-child-abuse-threat-to-basic-liberties.html

https://www.christianpost.com/news/grandmother-fighting-to-save-10-y-o-grandson-from-puberty-blockers-gender-transition-speaks-out.html

However, lets take one more critical look at this. Imagine if a person had bulimia and/or anorexia. And lets say this person was skin and bones, with a skeletal appearance. But yet, in spite of their physical reality, they felt as though they were fat, fat, fat! So some leftist ideologues came along and said, “Ya know what? It’s rather hateful to tell them the truth, that their mental ideology doesn’t fit their biological reality AND that their delusion is slowly killing them! So, in an act of *love and acceptance*, we should instead EMBRACE their psychological/mental delusion of being fat and let them get liposuction!”

Imagine how SHOCKED and HORRIFIED most outside people with a true rational sense of mind would be! Then, to add insult to injury, imagine if the PARENTS of said bulimic/anorexic, just went along with the leftist doctor’s orders, and decided to AFFIRM their child’s mental delusion! Just think of all the psychological, emotional, physical, AND spiritual harm that would do to a person (ESPECIALLY a child!) The rational world would be shocked and horrified if we just “went along” with an eating disorder patient’s delusions! So WHY then, should be forced to go along with a gender dysphoric person’s delusions? It is the same principle, folks!

And while it might not outright cause a “transgender” child to physically die (save for the case of suicide), “affirming them” IN their mental delusion does SEVERE LONG-TERM PSYCHOLOGICAL, EMOTIONAL **AND SPIRITUAL** HARM! Not only does it force them to “mutilate” their biological reality (i.e. perfectly healthy body parts), but it also sets them on a PATH to EMOTIONAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PHYSICAL **AND** ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Walt Heyer (and a few others) were lucky enough to SEE THE LIGHT before it was too late for them, REPENTED, and came to a FULL saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! Walt Heyer, if he stays on the path of righteousness, will be EMBRACED by Jesus Christ in the New Jerusalem (i.e. what most would consider “Eternal Paradise”).

However, those who do NOT REPENT and DIE in that sin of transgenderism/homosexuality/going against God’s image, will suffer ETERNALLY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! Therefore, “affirming” their mental/spiritual delusions (especially KNOWING that those delusions WILL someday lead them to sex change surgery, which THEN will eventually lead them to the eternal lake of fire if they do NOT repent of said actions) does NOT in ANY way, shape or form sound like “love” to ME!

===========

But then again, WHY should we be surprised? For transgender/drag queen promotion in children is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE, brought on by Satan and demons and the entire demonic realm! People are FORGETTING that DEMONIC SPIRITS are working through the people that are promoting all that ungodly stuff! It’s not PEOPLE but SPIRITS that we’re dealing with, lest we forget:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

The leftist ideologues (or rather, the demonic spirits working through them) want to try to project this national image that ALMOST EVERYONE in the medical field agrees with homosexual/trans/drag queen promotion but that’s simply not true! SEVERAL rationally, conscientious medical doctors do NOT in ANY way, shape or form agree with “leftist medical practices/procedures!” And sadly, many of them are afraid of speaking out due to the fear of losing their jobs! But see folks, that’s what Satan’s modus operandi IS – FEAR! And we must NOT let fear get in the way of US telling transgendered/homosexual people THE TRUTH!

The Truth Will Set You Free: John 8: 31-32
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”

Translation? UNTIL a person, ANY person, (not JUST a homosexual/trans/cross-dressing person and/or child), comes to a FULL saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, they will FOREVER be enslaved to their OWN SIN/THEIR OWN MIND!

Remember that sin begins IN THE MIND! And once sin takes root within our HEARTS, and moves from the mind TO the heart, it then becomes (if we don’t quickly REPENT – that means, to GIVE UP the thing we’re tempted to go against God) an ACTUAL REALITY! And please remember that it is SIN ITSELF, that separates us from Jesus Christ/Eternal Salvation! That’s WHY Jesus Christ died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins!

God the Heavenly Father made humans in his own image! However, it wasn’t long before humankind decided to PROFANE that image! Satan, God’s enemy, DECEIVED humankind and successfully got them to PROFANE God’s perfect image! “Sin” entered into the world. Therefore, God the Heavenly Father had to come up with a way to RECONCILE MANKIND TO HIMSELF. So he sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins! And ALL those humans who believed and trusted in Jesus Christ FOR salvation (which means, forgiveness of sins) WOULD be saved!

So profaning God’s NATURAL, biological image of a person NOT ONLY lets Satan win but it also forces a person to BECOME THEIR OWN “god!”

  • “MY will be done”
  • “I will re-create myself in MY own image”
  • “I have no authority or ruler over me except MYSELF”
  • “I am my OWN god”
  • “I am the ruler over my own body”
  • “I will have children outside of natural, God-ordained procreation”
  • “I will get married outside the confines of God”
  • “I will create or take away life, as I please”

Notice something here, folks? Notice how abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism/cross-dressing, gay marriage, gay adoption, and every other spiritually perverse thing follows all these same type of arguments? The MAIN one being “MY will be done?”

The church of Satan’s law is “do what though wilt shall be the whole of the law”. Peel back ANY layer of the “leftist ideological onion” and that’s what ya get! Satanic law! Is THAT the type of law we want ruling over ourselves and our children? I should hope not, folks!

People have LOST their fear of the Lord! People are giving up on their Christian faith IN DROVES these days! And BECAUSE many people are giving up on their Christian faith these days, they’re giving rise to demons/demonic spirits! And these demonic spirits will STOP AT NOTHING until every last Christian is “eliminated”, one way or another! Rather it’s severe persecution, death, imprisonment, SEVERE DELUSION, etc.

Basically, it’s the Ephesians 6:12 WAR at its finest, folks! And the “child abuse” of drag queen/transgender promotion among CHILDREN under 18 is actually only a PART of it! So please, I beg you, I IMPLORE YOU, even: if you are not 100% right with Jesus Christ, then NOW”S the time to do it! Not tomorrow, not the next day, NOT next week but NOW! Because time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to die!

And last not but least, a person is NOT truly set free – from ANY SIN (be it homosexuality, transgenderism, food/alcohol/drug/porn addiction, etc.) – UNTIL they find Eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ. Everything else is a COUNTERFEIT, a poor imitation that ONLY leads to the road of Eternal Destruction in the Lake of Fire! MARK MY WORDS! 

“Heavenly Father, today I’d like to pray for ALL those precious souls out there that have been DECEIVED by Satan and his demons! Please OPEN UP their eyes – spiritually – show them how much you love them and how much you’re longing to have a TRUE spiritual relationship with them but that you can’t do that if they won’t let you. SHOW THEM all the ways in which Satan, demons and secular society has LIED to them their whole lives! Show them THE TRUTH of your gospel and that you are the ONLY WAY to Eternal Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins! Please take them OUT of Satan’s grasp and bring them instead into your true, heavenly light, the light of righteousness! Give them FAITH in YOU, O Lord! And not just ANY type of faith but a STRONG, UNWAVERING FAITH in YOU! And then, once they DO gain that strong, unwavering faith in you (thank you, Lord!), use them as a heavenly vessel the way you’ve used Walt Heyer to preach YOUR TRUTH (as well as THE TRUTH about Satan’s lies about “transgender” etc.) to the masses! I say this in Jesus’s name! Amen”. 

 

The Workplace Is A Spiritual Battlefield!

Work. It’s where a good majority of Americans spend the majority of their time. And each individual workplace has a “culture” (both corporately and individually). And nine times out of 10, that particular “culture” is NOT conducive in any way towards Christianity/Jesus/the bible! Let me number the ways!

Out of any given “secular” workplace (and I’m excluding the Christian workplaces, here), only about 5% of employees or less are likely “Christian” in any way, shape or form. And OF that 5% or less that are Christian, only about 1-2% would qualify as “true Christians”. Therefore, the odds are HIGHLY STACKED against any one person who truly desires to live the Lord’s way! 

In fact, several things happen in the workplace that go AGAINST the bible:

1). People like to “gossip” about one another. And if you don’t participate in the “workplace gossip”, people look down on you as though you’re some type of “holier than though Christian.”

2). Christians (as a whole) aren’t allowed to talk about their Christian faith in the workplace. And if they do, they’ll likely be reprimanded in some way, shape or form. Yet, coworkers who are NOT Christian are likely pretty much allowed to mock Christianity to the hilt and NOT get reprimanded for it in any type of way. 

3). Many workplaces are now starting to embrace “liberal theology” with “gender-neutral bathrooms” and the like. If a Christian employee tries to protest, they’re oftentimes fired or formally written up due to “being discriminatory” towards “gender-neutral people”, or at the very least, laughed at and ignored.

4). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) are CONSTANTLY keeping secret (even unconscious) tabs on “Christian coworkers” just waiting for them to “slip up”, somehow & just waiting to see how THOSE Christian coworkers live up to the bible’s standards AND to workplace scrutiny (it’s TRUE!) They’re particularly mindful of things such as if a Christian coworker is ever “late” to work, if they take too long for their lunch break or 15min break, OR if they cuss or use strong language when irritated or angry. 

5). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) will oftentimes try to “tempt” Christian coworkers into behaving or thinking badly OR will “gloat” about their non-Christian faith in an attempt to “silence” the Christian or “shame them”.

6). Satan himself will oftentimes use CUSTOMERS/CLIENTS/PATIENTS/RENTERS etc. (whatever the symbiotic role is) to get on our nerves, make us irritated & angry, tempt us to gossip about them to coworkers, tempt us TO act out in anger against them, etc.

7). Satan himself (and his demonic spirits working under him) will oftentimes tempt us to do “dishonest practices” (ex: a doctor/lawyer overcharging the patient/client, a person putting down on the time clock sheet that they were on time to work even if they weren’t, a person lying on temp logs if the temperature wasn’t hot enough/were forgotten if working in food service, putting all the trash/crumbs in a room underneath the bed and/or not changing the sheets if a housekeeper, you get the idea……..)

8). There is this IMMENSE PRESSURE (even for those who ARE born again Christians) to “fit in” by going to parties/workplace functions, by watching the latest movies/TV shows, by listening to the latest music, by trying some of the latest drugs/alcohol to hit the market, etc. Most people don’t want to be seen as a complete “square”, right? It’s human nature to want to be “liked” and Satan uses that against us in the workplace, EXCEEDINGLY! 

9). All OTHER faiths are promoted and it’s HIGHLY DISCOURAGING to the Christian. This puts SO MUCH pressure on the Christian (in the workplace setting) to NOT talk about their Christian faith at all.

10). Even amidst all clamour & opposition, those born-again Christians who DO actively choose to the cling to the bible’s principles are oftentimes mocked & ridiculed to SCORN by many of those in the workplace who do NOT share their love of Christ & of righteousness! 

11). When nearly 95% or more of people in the workplace DON’T love or worship Jesus, it becomes really, really, really hard to try to continue to live by the bible’s precepts. Cause like it or not, non-Christian type of behavior DOES seem to rub off on Christian people after awhile. Need proof? Look no further than the case of “Lot”, Abraham’s nephew in the book of Genesis or also how the Hebrew Israelites starting behaving after their “captivity in Babylon”. Our “social & work environment” affects us folks, rather we like it or not! 

12). If ever a born-again Christian DOES try to talk about their faith with a coworker or starts silently praying for one of them, it’s almost like Satan & the dark side pick up on the fact IMMEDIATELY and IMMEDIATELY tries to make grounds to thwart it! Example: a customer will walk up (in food service or retail), a manager will swing by and “distract” by asking for/saying such n’ such, that particular coworker will suddenly seem to go “stark raving mad” (because remember it’s the demonic spirit that’s living INSIDE of them that’s ENRAGED at the gospel), etc. 

13). Satan will oftentimes utilize “temptations of the flesh” to get a born-again Christian in the workplace to fall. And sadly, he’s oftentimes very, very successful at it! 

14). Satan will also use his “followers” to try to “tempt others away from the faith, COMPLETELY” (oftentimes using the tactics called “the emotional response” – as in – “hey, aren’t transgender people, people TOO? Shouldn’t they have “rights”, just like everyone else?” and so-called “rational reasoning” – as in – “So…..ask yourself this…..does it REALLY seem rational that Eve came across a TALKING SNAKE in the Garden of Eden? Come on now, lets get REAL, here!” while ALSO simultaneously repeating the lies of Evolution over and over again in an attempt to make a Christian lose their faith in Creationism/Genesis. 

15). Some non-Christians have even taken to “threats” and “intimidation” of their Christian coworkers (no joke!) In fact, there’s likely been many, many cases of “workplace-related witchcraft” going on against every single, true born-again “Christian”. That’s what they do in workplaces these days, folks. They comb over your social media. They try to figure out your “personal view on things”. They try to figure out your last name, where you live, what types of foods you eat, what types of TV programs you watch, etc. They single you out. And once you’re “singled out” by them, look out. Things could quickly get very ugly, spiritually speaking! Especially if you’re not TRULY grounded in your faith in Jesus! 

16). “Transgender/homosexual/non-binary” employees serve TWO purposes and two purposes, ONLY: A) To try to FORCE workplaces into accepting “gender ideology” and also B) To try to FORCE OUT any promotion of Christianity or a Christian coworker’s right to preach the gospel (ESPECIALLY the part of the gospel that says that homosexuality/transgenderism is a sin)

17). Most workplaces do NOT allow a Christian worker to openly pray or “openly” wear a cross necklace around their neck, etc. Yet, many workplaces now accept a man “wearing lipstick” or a woman dressed as a man or even a person with multiple piercings, oddly colored hair & tattoos all over their body. 

18). Many workplaces do not allow bibles (even during lunch breaks or 15min breaks) because it can “incite violence/complaints/protests” on the part of non-believers. 

19). Complaints of workplace harassment made by Christians (rather verbal, physical, emotional and/or sexual) are oftentimes ignored & swept under the rug, as though they “never happened”. 

20). Christians are oftentimes fired or severely reprimanded for “paying for a customer’s meal”, “offering free lawyer/doctor/medical services to those in need”, etc.

21). VERY, VERY RARELY does a workplace let a Christian/Messianic Jew off for the “biblical Sabbath” every week OR for “biblical holidays” and if they DO, it does NOT come without “consequence”. The Christian/M.J. will oftentimes be “punished” for it somehow, in the workplace. Why? Because Satan and his demons are ANGRY at the Christian for trying to live their lives totally around Christ! The demons CAN’T STAND IT! Satan CAN’T STAND IT! They’re ANGRY with any true Christians because they know their time is short!

(In fact, Satan and his demons will even try to DIRECTLY attack Christians at work, even coming THROUGH or speaking THROUGH their coworkers! The ONLY way to defeat a demon is in the mighty name of Jesus! Remember that!) 

Folks, this is the world we’re living in, today. First, the battlefield starts in the mind. And then, it comes to the home. And thirdly, at work. But out of these three, the spiritual battlefield that rages on in the workplace is THE STRONGEST of these three battles. Why? Because it has the MOST IMPACT. It is basically “temptations GALORE”……

Temptations are MUCH EASIER to beat at the home than in the workplace, am I right? Especially if a bible or a poster of the 10 commandments is close by. And temptations that begin in the mind can more easily be defeated by praying in the name of Jesus. But temptations in the workplace are MUCH, MUCH HARDER to overcome since a Christian must CONSTANTLY stay focused on work and “the current task at hand”. It’s very, very hard for a Christian to mentally concentrate enough TO pray in the workplace setting, am I right? 

Some Christians go INTO the workplace every day DETERMINED to try to share their faith,etc. and then, one hour later after arriving at work, are EMBITTERED, ANGRY, RESENTFUL, STRESSED, etc. So what happened? What happened between the time they left their house/apartment that morning, to an hour after arriving at work? Answer: Temptation happened! For NEVER is the temptation to get frustrated/angry and/or to “gossip” stronger than in the WORKPLACE of all places, am I right? 

The workplace is a NESTING GROUND for Satan & his demons, folks, it really IS! And sadly, ALOT of Christians don’t see that! They see it as some sort of “persecution” but many of them are “spiritually asleep” and do NOT see the “workplace” for what it REALLY, TRULY IS: a SPIRITUAL BATTLEFIELD! 

Satan & his demons are out for blood, folks! Spiritual blood! And the less informed a Christian is, in the work setting, the more hold he has on them! Does that scare you, folks? It SHOULD! 

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” – Ephesians 6:12 

Spiritual warfare is something that Christians RARELY talk about today and it’s just RAGING in the workplaces and in the churches today! RRRAAAGGGGIIINNNNNGGGGG! How do more people not see this fact? In fact, the ONLY REASON that churches AND workplaces today are now catering to the RADICAL LGBT ACTIVISTS?

It is BECAUSE many of the Christians in churches and workplaces today are NOT and WERE NOT already actively engaging in SPIRITUAL BATTLE! And BECAUSE they don’t have their “spiritual shields” on and their “spiritual swords” at the ready, BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING! BAD *SPIRITUAL* THINGS! Because BELIEVE ME, any workplace/church, and I do mean *ANY* WORKPLACE/CHURCH (no matter WHAT type of workplace/church it is) that PROMOTES OR ACCEPTS *ANY* type of ungodly theology (be it gender ideology or what have ya), is now considered a CURSED WORKPLACE (AND/OR CHURCH) in the eyes of God, like it or not!

Just because a huge bolt of lightning didn’t take out the workplace or church yet doesn’t mean anything. For the Lord is likely holding back his Wrath ON those workplaces for the sake of the “few spiritually pure” that work there. And how much longer those “pure’ workers will continue to work there is both up to them and up to Jesus. 

Because my guess is once those few “pure” workers are gone, those particular “LGBT-affirming” workplaces will be toast, one way or another. In fact, I wonder what the long-term future will be for all LGBT-affirming workplaces. It will be interesting to watch, in the near future. SO MANY businesses are “going under” these days and I’m beginning to wonder if ONE of the reasons SO MANY businesses are going under IS due to God’s Wrath? Just a thought? 

 

 

 

Anger Solves NOTHING!

Anger. It’s an emotion we’ve ALL felt from time to time. The person in front of us at the checkout is taking too long. Someone cuts us off in traffic. Someone at work is micro-managing us. A friend, family member or complete stranger says something insensitive to us. We find that there was a mistake on our tax refund and/or that we’ve been overcharged on one or more of our bills. We’re driving a long distance and one of the tires suddenly has a blowout. The cat hops up on the cabinet (while we got our back turned for just THREE seconds) and helps him/herself to a piece of “sandwich” we’re in the process of making for lunch.

WHATEVER the situation, anger solves NOTHING! Anger will NOT, by any means:

  1. Make the person taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R at the checkout line in front of us suddenly speed up in a jiffy
  2. Make the person who cut us off in traffic UN-CUT us off in traffic or magically make them look over at us and mouth the words: I’m sorry
  3. Make the coworker who’s micro-managing us suddenly STOP, smile and say Sorry….I guess I AM micro-managing you, my apologies, didn’t mean to
  4. Make the friend, family member or complete stranger IMMEDIATELY apologize for their actions and ask for forgiveness
  5. Make the tax refund mistake go away or make the numbers magically change to the correct amount before our very eyes
  6. Make the tire IMMEDIATELY “re-correct” itself so we can keep on driving
  7. Make the cat UN-EAT the bite of sandwich and meow that they’re “sorry” (well….they might possibly meow that they’re sorry, but that’s besides the point………)

It’s pretty much a given that EVERY single human being on the planet is going to experience frustration and ANGER at SOME point in their existence. That’s a given. But it’s how we DEAL with that anger that matters.

Lets say you’re in a work situation. Your coworker Steve is micro-managing you to the HILT! No…..put that April file over here with the February files, that way, we can keep better track of it. So then you do and not 30 seconds later, he “barks” at you AGAIN: No….don’t put it at the BOTTOM of the pile, put it at the TOP of the pile of February documents (even if you’re sitting there questioning like, WHAT?? That makes no sense!!! The TOP of the pile???? Where the file might possibly not be found or be confused with the February or January files? What the HECK???”

And then, just to test your buttons of patience EVEN FURTHER (or so it seems), good-ole “Steve-O” comes at you YET AGAIN: “Put all your most current May and April 2017 folders in the TOP DRAWERS, we NEVER put them in the BOTTOM DRAWERS that are closest within reach, YOU KNOW THAT!

And it’s usually at THIS point in time that our fragile human minds want to scream EXPLETIVES at “Steve-O” and GIVE HIM A PIECE OF OUR MIND! (Which, ironically enough, is likely what Steve-O wants, in the first place. So why give him the satisfaction?)

But folks, we got to realize something, here. Whenever there’s something that “testing our patience to the limits“, it’s because of 2 reasons:

A). Satan and his demons are trying EVER-SO-HARD to BREAK US…….to GET us to FEEL angry, to GET us to FEEL resentful, to GET us to CUSS UP A STORM, SNAP, and/or possibly belittle others in the process!

B). Jesus is “using” the experience to TEACH us “patience”, as odd as that may sound.

Now, there’s TWO types of anger mentioned in the bible. There is what’s called RIGHTEOUS ANGER (Jesus over-turning the money changers’ tables in The Temple) and UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER (Cain’s anger over Abel, Esau’s anger towards Jacob, Saul pursuing David, Moses killing the Egyptian that was harassing a Hebrew slave, Herod’s anger with the 3 Wisemen, etc.)

Now, we can all “claim” that OUR ANGER towards the “sinful behaviors of others” is classified as “righteous anger”. But when’s the last time we honestly got “righteously angry” over the sinful behavior(s) of OURSELVES?

That’s PRECISELY the EXACT issue that Jesus is discussing in Matthew 7: 3-5 which states: “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye

In other words, we can’t fully “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OTHERS until we first “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OURSELVES………Because Romans 3:23 says: “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. That means that NOBODY is perfect. NONE. None on the ENTIRE EARTH, past, future or present.

The ONLY being that is WITHOUT sin is ofcourse, JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY. While he lived on the Earth, he was BLAMELESS and WITHOUT SIN. That’s WHY he was a suitable sacrifice unto God to “take away the PENALTY of the sins of the world/mankind”. Because only one who is completely WITHOUT SIN can be a suitable enough sacrifice to TAKE AWAY THE PENALTY OF ALL SIN (in God’s eyes), if that makes any sense?

Now, lets look at the 7 above “anger-inducing cases” and see what happens when those people DON’T sinfully ACT on their anger:

  1. The person getting “irritated” at person in front of them in line sighs, takes a deep breath, patiently waits and then it’s THEIR turn. Life goes on.
  2. The person was cut off in traffic realizes that there’s a possibility that the person who cut them off did so “accidentally” and doesn’t fret about it. 
  3. The person being micro-managed at work stops, takes a deep breath and realizes that the micro-manager is either highly stressed themselves or only trying to be helpful and doesn’t fret about it.
  4. The person who an insensitive thing was said to rationally realizes that the person probably didn’t even realize what was said was insensitive and just rolls with it. Life goes on.
  5. The person who sees a mistake on their tax refund sighs, takes a deep breath and then calmly calls the IRS phone number to let them know what’s going on. They know eventually they’ll get the check for the correct amount and don’t fret about it.
  6. The person who had a tire blow-out will eventually fix it themselves or stay calm, figuring that help will soon be on the way.
  7. The person who had their kitty eat part of their sandwich LAUGHS about it, instead of gets mad about it, then makes themselves another sandwich cause hey, it’s not the end of the world, right?

Now, we’ve SEEN cases in the bible where people ACTED IMMEDIATELY on their anger 

  1. Cain killing Abel
  2. Esau plotting to kill Jacob
  3. Saul plotting to kill David
  4. Herod killing all boys, aged 2 and under
  5. Moses killing the Egyptian, who was “being brutal” towards the Israelite slave worker
  6. Moses SMASHING the clay tablets of stone with God’s law on them (upon seeing the disobedient children of Israel)
  7. Balaam beating his donkey for what HE thought was “weird behavior”
  8. Jezebel plotting to kill Elijah
  9. Haman being FURIOUS over Mordecai not bowing down to him and giving him obeisance
  10. Jonah got mad at God for NOT destroying the city of Nineveh (after his prophesying) AND for making him preach there in the first place?
  11. ETC.

Just like we can see cases where anger was likely HELD IN……..(and not acted upon):

  1. Abraham was likely secretly resentful/angry of Sarah demanding Hagar & Ishmael’s “banishment” since it was Sarah’s idea in the FIRST place for Abraham to marry Hagar and have children by her.
  2. When Jacob deceived Esau out of his birthright and out of his “patriarchal blessing”, Isaac was likely “silently angry” with both his sons (Esau, for being so “careless” about his birthright/blessing and with Jacob for having deceived Esau AND HIM).
  3. Jacob was likely VERY ANGRY (on the inside) with Laban for deceiving him into marrying Leah, instead of Rachel
  4.  Leah was likely resentful/angry towards her father for making her marry a man, Jacob, who clearly did NOT love HER, the way that Jacob loved Rachel, her younger sister), with Jacob (for loving Rachel more than her, and spending the MAJORITY of his nights with Rachel) AND with Rachel, for “being the favorite” of Jacob, etc.
  5. Jacob was likely resentful/angry (or at the VERY least, highly “annoyed”) with Leah for “buying a night with him with her son Reuben’s mandrakes”
  6. Old Testament Joseph was likely secretly angry with his brothers for selling him off as a slave, etc.
  7. Jacob (as well as Benjamin?) were likely secretly angry with all the other sons, after “initially” discovering the truth about Joseph (that he was initially “sold as a slave in Egypt”)
  8. Shem & Japheth were likely secretly angry with their brother Ham, for acting so foolishly and dishonorable with their “drunken” father, Noah
  9. New Testament Joseph likely felt HURT, BETRAYED, AND secretly angry/disappointed with his espoused, Mary, for what HE must’ve thought was her “going out on him”, BEFORE discovering that she was “immaculately pregnant with the Messiah, Jesus Christ”
  10. Mary’s own parents were likely secretly angry with her for what THEY thought was her “dishonorable behavior” before THEY knew she was “miraculously pregnant with the Messiah”
  11. ETC.

It’s funny how many Christians today sort’ve hold alot of the biblical characters up on a pedestal and act as though they never “thought” or “did” anything wrong. But folks, ALL biblical characters (save for Jesus Christ himself) were FAR FROM PERFECT. And many of them (just like many of us do, TODAY) got ANGRY and IMMEDIATELY ACTED UPON THAT ANGER!

As for all the bible characters that seemed to “hold it in”, for every single time they were able to be patient and hold their anger IN, there was likely a counter time in their lives when they did NOT hold their anger in and acted more like the “insta-charge angerers” list up above.

Now think back to the last time you got angry about something…….TRULY ANGRY. Did it solve anything? Did it make the situation better? Or did it just make things worse? How did it impact the others around you? (And how did it affect your children, spouse, coworkers and even PETS?) Did it turn out to be a worthwhile experience? Did it make you feel happy and fulfilled at all? Did you feel as though the anger was “worth it?” Did you feel as though it pleased Jesus Christ at all?

Because the truth is, anger solves NOTHING and takes away EVERYTHING! It takes away your mind, heart, sanity and spirit! And if left PERPETUALLY UNCHECKED, anger can be the catalyst for you losing your own very SOUL! Anger causes people to do MANY, MANY unrighteous and harmful things (both to themselves and to others). Anger causes hate and violence, rape and murder, ruined relationships and marriages, all sorts of sin and crime. It’s not worth it.

The next time you feel angry (about ANYTHING or ANYONE), just take a deep breath, relax, take ANOTHER deep breath and IMMEDIATELY re-asses the situation. And ask yourself, “is it worth it?”

Anger won’t repair your relationship or marriage……..won’t make things better for you at home or work……..won’t make you a better son/daughter, friend, coworker, spouse, niece/nephew, grandson/granddaughter, etc.

Anger (in and of itself) will help destroy everything you’ve ever worked for. Don’t let it win. Don’t let Satan and his demons win. Remember that WHEN the Old Testament characters unleashed their anger, unchecked, they were PUNISHED for it by God! However…..whenever they held their anger in and did NOT act on it, they were BLESSED FOR IT, BY GOD!

Now, that doesn’t mean that it’s not alright to feel angry from time to time, as anger is a normal, human emotion. It’s just what we DO with that anger that counts. Ephesians 4: 26-27 says: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil”. So, in other words, when we let anger stew and come out full strength, the bible says we are “giving place to the devil”, meaning, we’re giving him leeway in our lives!  

I want to share my own personal experience here with anger and what all it’s done (or hasn’t done) for me. I’m usually a patient person and it takes alot to get me angry. But when my patience is tested to the hilt, I don’t tend to get just a “little” angry……Without prayer and intercession by the Lord Jesus, I tend (as a whole) to get REALLY ANGRY! And all the times I got REALLY ANGRY in my life, it did absolutely NOTHING for me. In fact, it has DESTROYED close relationships I’ve had in my life! It has taken so much FROM ME and has done absolutely nothing FOR me!

Anger robs the soul of LIFE! It really does. You can even spend your whole entire LIFE being mad at someone (or at God, even). Only to later find that it SOLVES NO PURPOSE! People that were estranged from parents/friends/relatives, for example, and hated them for YEARS? When they DO finally make up with them and start speaking to them again, they’re oftentimes GRIEVED about all that WASTED TIME that they COULD’VE SPENT together, making amends and letting bygones be bygones.

And all the times in my life when I just let my anger go, did NOT act on it, but prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ about it and trusted JESUS with it? Miraculous things would start to happen…….Things at work and home would start to run much smoother……..things that made me so angry before no longer seemed like such a big deal, anymore……the grass & trees looked greener, the sun looked brighter, the singing birds sounded more beautiful, people were nicer, plus I was FAR more content & happier……happier than I’ve ever been, actually…….

So if you’re angry about someTHING or someONE, I want you to ask yourself if it’s worth it. Is it worth all that LOST TIME that you COULD be spending making amends with that person/those people? It says in the bible that we must forgive others if we ourselves want to be forgiven. So what does that entail, one might ask? Well, for one, it means LETTING GO OF ANGER. I know that’s hard to do. I know it’s easier said than done. (Been there, done that, I KNOW how it feels). But if we want to move FORWARD (both, in our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ AND with each other), then we MUST let go of our resentments/ANGER (anger towards God/Jesus, towards other people, & towards ourselves, etc.)

Even SELF-ANGER (anger at self) is DESTRUCTIVE and serves no purpose. For how can we faithfully serve God/Jesus is we’re too busy condemning ourselves to oblivion? Who CARES about what sin we did 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 2 years ago or 2 months ago? Does that REALLY hold any true bearing for what we’re doing for the Lord Jesus Christ in the HERE and the NOW?

The anti-thesis of anger is PATIENCE…..humbled PATIENCE. Jesus Christ puts us in “long lines”, etc. at the bank or grocery store, etc. to teach us PATIENCE. Jesus puts us in EVERY “patience-testing situation” to teach us PATIENCE. In fact, did you know that Satan the Devil gets ANGRY whenever WE are PATIENT? It’s true. And whenever WE get ANGRY and ACT ON IT, Satan’s happy as a lark! That’s WHY we should never let Satan win in the “war on anger”.

If you or someone you know is currently struggling with the perpetual problem of ANGER, I would HIGHLY encourage you to pray to the Lord Jesus Christ about it, HUMBLE YOURSELVES before Jesus, give your whole LIFE to him, and then, just sit back and watch all the miraculous things he’ll do in your life, when you CONQUER YOUR UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER IN JESUS’S NAME! 😉

Plus, here’s another thing you can try. The very next time you feel your anger rising, immediately shout within your spirit: “PRAISE JESUS! FOR BY HIS HEAVENLY NAME, I WILL LEARN PATIENCE & ENDURANCE!” And believe me folks, IT WORKS! It’s helped to calm me down in almost EVERY situation that’s made me immediately mad! However, when I DIDN’T do that….my anger became more apparent. So just goes to show ya.

And yes, though I DO still struggle with anger in my life from time to time (especially in the work setting), I’m getting much, much better these days at conquering it in Jesus’s name! And I pray that all of you will continue to do the same! 😉
