BLASPHEMOUS Amazon Documentary Paints Jesus As Nothing More Than “GREEK Philosopher”

An Amazon Prime documentary has made claim that Jesus Christ was not a Jew from Nazareth, but rather a Greek philosopher named Apollonius, born in the Anatolia region of Turkey.

The above false, biblical theory about Jesus is being put out by the group known as “Bible Conspiracies”, who also claim such unbiblical whoppers as “an alien race known as the Annunaki destroyed the tower of Babel” and also that “Sodom & Gomorrah were actually taken out by a nuclear explosion!”

Not withstanding, it only got a 2 STAR RATING, with many viewers on Amazon voicing their displeasure with the highly blasphemous film:

“The writers of this film not only have NO actual Biblical knowledge, they quote many myths that have been not only been disproved, but are laughed at in theological circles. In this video, there are no experts, no theologians, only many rhetorical lies that are often spewed by evolutionists and atheists.”

Yet another viewer said the following:

“Does not live up to its name – doesn’t reveal any Bible ‘conspiracies’ only tries to cast doubt on the Bible with no historical evidence or interviews with trustworthy experts, just pure conjecture.”

Apollonius of Perga was BORN 262BC in Perga, Turkey and DIED around 190BC in Alexandria, Egypt. So already right there, we can KNOW beyond 100% fact that Apollonius didn’t even LIVE around the same time as Jesus/Yeshua!!!!! (Although if ya want to claim that he invented mathemtical “conic sections”, you might possibly be on to something there, but I digress…..)

Sadly, this “blasphemous documentary” on Jesus is just one of MANY! Several of these “bible conspiracy” documentaries try to shed light on HOW God/Jesus did the things He did……such as HOW He performed his divine miracles and their “secular reasoning” is WAY, WAY OFF!

There’s also false claims (in general) from “skeptics” about HOW Jesus was able to walk on the sea or make wine from water, etc. And UNLESS a person has KNOWLEDGE of the bible, they’re gonna fall victim to many of these false and blasphemous “documentaries”. And these “documentaries” ALL have ONE goal in common: to BLASPHEME JESUS/YESHUA……..either by saying he “never existed” or that the “Jesus of the bible is NOT the actual Jesus”, etc.

Now, I don’t write about this false, blasphemous Amazon Prime documentary to deceive or confuse you but rather to INFORM you about the works of the enemy! Now…..true, most of you will probably be smart enough to see past the Devil’s lies on that one! But an “unsaved person” probably would NOT be able to tell the difference between the biblical Jesus and the false “Jesus” that this documentary promotes! Therefore, I pray that ALL who read this post will simply KNOW that the Amazon prime documentary claiming that Jesus was actually a Greek philosopher is FALSE, FALSE, FALSE!

And P.S.: After this “false documentary” coming to light, I’m now thinking on rather or not I should boycott or severely limit my Amazon usage from now on. For by LETTING this blasphemous documentary on Jesus come to Amazon Prime TO BEGIN WITH, Amazon has now made it abundantly clear to me that they do NOT represent the TRUE, JEWISH, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible in any way, shape or form! Nor do they any longer truly represent ME, a born-again Christian customer!

So perhaps from now on, I should just start using Barnes & Noble or think of another alternative UNTIL Amazon REMOVES that blasphemous “false Jesus” documentary. And then, once and if they DO, I will once again resume shopping at Amazon since I admit that I love shopping there. But seriously. What’s the point of my shopping there on Amazon anymore if they no longer want to truly represent me as a born-again Christian customer? Am I over-reacting? Taking it a bit too far, perhaps?

I don’t think so. Because after having met Jesus personally during an N.D.E., I do NOT take any “blasphemous” things about him too lightly! It feels like a personal punch in the gut to me whenever somebody and/or some “corporation” is trying to say false or bad things about Jesus and so I can’t stand that!

Lets face it folks, it would really be no different than if some random stranger (a business owner) came up to you and boldly declared a bald-faced lie about one of your loved ones. If you just KNEW that what they were saying about your loved one was BLATANTLY FALSE and had NO MERIT whatsoever, you’d be pretty put off, too! (I’m actually not sure if I’m more hurt or ANGRY whenever I see someone or something blaspheming Jesus, the one and only true Messiah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

However, sometimes I DO believe that Jesus ALLOWS us to experience OTHERS blaspheming him in OUR presense in order to remind US of who HE is! Let me explain. I saw Jesus during an N.D.E., therefore, I KNOW beyond 100% FACT that he’s the one and only true Messiah! However, sometimes I believe he allows us to come across knowledge of things such as the “blasphemous documentary about him” on Amazon, etc., in order to RE-AFFIRM who he is!

In other words, by ALLOWING that false documentary about him on Amazon, he’s letting us know that he WASN’T a “Greek philosopher”. If that makes any sense? Plus I also think he allows such things in order to test the HEARTS of people. Let me elaborate. Okay, so lets say average Joe Schmoe or Sally Jane sees the documentary claiming Jesus was nothing more than a Greek philosopher.

Perhaps Jesus then wants to test the HEARTS of “Joe Schmoe” and/or “Sally Jane” in order to see if “Joe” and/or “Sally” just take the documentary’s word for it……OR if “Joe” and/or “Sally” decide to look into it a bit more and do the actual research for themselves as in, “Is THAT true? Is that REALLY what happened? What is the EVIDENCE for THAT claim?”

But yet, here’s the clincher: Even if “Joe” or “Sally” DO just take the documentary’s word for it (and soon publicly declare the documentary’s “theory” among family, friends, coworkers and strangers), they’ll soon likely come across someone (rather Christian or not) that tells them: “Actually, there’s NO historical basis for the documentary’s claims…..the Greek philosopher lived long before Jesus was supposedly born, so….?”

And THAT will then get the “Joe” and “Sally” people searching on a DIFFERENT quest of sorts: “Wait, WHAT? What do you MEAN it’s not true? How IS the evidence lacking?” They will then be FORCED to look into the LACK of evidence from the documentary and come to realize that the makers of the documentary were just out to mock God and make a cheap buck. And then ofcourse, that will send them on another “quest for truth”, altogether……perhaps a quest for JESUS’S TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH, even (which could never be a BAD thing……)

But that reasoning aside, I DO think that Jesus tests our knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time in order to keep us on our spiritual toes. I call it “spiritual discernment training”. Because lets face it, if Jesus doesn’t fine-tune our spiritual knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time, we will become suspectible to spiritual deception and Jesus and the Holy Spirit don’t want that, which is WHY we oftentimes come across blasphemous things about Jesus that make us stop, take a step back, and say to ourselves: “Wait a minute…..THAT can’t be true…….it contradicts the bible here, here and here…..that’s BLASPHEMY!”

And when we get to the point where we ARE able to recognize something as “blasphemous” or “biblically false”, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are never more proud of us! It’s like they’re saying in unison, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – [John 10:27-28]

However, the people that willingly BELIEVE the “blasphemy?” Especially in the current End Times in which we’re now living in? Jesus has THIS to say:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” – 2 Timothy 3:4

Can we say OUCH? But to put it in a deeper context, I want to quote another bible passage that I think reiterates the point:

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12]

So in other words, in the FIRST passage up above (in 2 Timothy 3:4), people are believing what they “think” or what they “feel” should be biblically true (i.e. “I believe that ALL people should go to heaven unless they were like, Hitler or something”). And BECAUSE of the total “hardness” of their hearts, and their “stubborness” IN believing in what THEY “think” or “feel” should be the gospel truth, instead of the ACTUAL gospel truth, Jesus then in turn ALLOWS them to believe and feel whatever they want (EVEN IF what they “believe” and “feel” should be the gospel truth isn’t the true gospel truth AT ALL!)

And through the time and over the years, Jesus tries INNUMERABLE ways to try to “chip away” at their stubborn, cold hearts. But IF they don’t repent (and then later go on to to take the Mark of the Beast – thus believing in the “strong delusion” of the Antichrist’s lies – and lets face it, Mark of the Beast is the ULTIMATE STRONG DELUSION OF DELUSIONS), Jesus has NO CHOICE but to DAMN THAT PERSON’S SOUL FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH! ;-(

There’s many mockers and scoffers out there in these last days, making “mockumentaries galore” (rather it’s movies, tv shows, magazine covers, album covers, social media posts, newspaper articles, books, SNL – Saturday Night Live, or whatever have you). And my oh my how I just PRAY for all those lost souls. For they just have NO IDEA what all they’re up against if they die without the saving grace of Jesus Christ! Many think that “hell won’t be that bad”.

Well, the fires of hell aren’t even eternal. Why? Because they’re gonna be MERGED WITH the fire in the LAKE OF FIRE! And the fires of hell are 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter (I know……because an angel told me during a near-suicide experience several years ago…….And I was even somewhat skeptical of the angel’s words, until I did the “research” for myself by reading the Revelation passages where it’s mentioned the fires of hell will merge with the lake of fire). And the lake of fire is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell and 1,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter! So YOU do the math, folks!

Some think: “Hey! No problem! People’ll just burn till they’re consumed, then they’ll cease to exist”. Well, I post THIS in response to their “false, lukewarm assumptions”:

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” – [Revelation 14:11]

“Oh but certainly that couldn’t be mean FOREVER & EVER”, some panicked atheist or lukewarm Christian often says. But that’s NOT what the bible says, my friends! It says FOREVER and EVER! For ETERNITY! It also says they have NO REST day or night! Translation? They WILL be tormented for eternity! Why? Because they CHOSE to be tormented for eternity by REJECTING Jesus’s sacrifice for them (and for all of mankind) on the cross of Calvary!

“Oh but certainly a LOVING GOD wouldn’t DO such a thing”, some panicked person somewhere still argues in their heart, in response. Think of it THIS way: If a parent sends off their hateful, cold-hearted, ungrateful, spiteful, vengeful, angry child off to “boot camp” or “military school” to try to straighten them out and they come back even WORSE than before or just AS worse as they were before they went there, then the parent SADLY has no choice but to PERMANETLY DISOWN their child!

But imagine this slightly differently: Imagine the loving parent warning the child: “If you come back from military school just as bad or worse than before, and don’t repent of your hateful behavior towards me, then I will have no choice but to eternally disown you and throw you into an eternal burning heap of torment“, and the child then CHOOSES to not repent after that time of “boot camp” or “military school”, then the parent, sadly, has NO CHOICE but to follow through with their ultimatum.

Why? Because they KNOW, they just simply KNOW, that if they let their hateful, spiteful, UNREPETANT kid back into their house again, that the kid will just hate them 10 TIMES MORE than before! And not only THAT but they ALSO chose ANOTHER “parental figure”, one who LIES to them and only wants to DESTROY THEM! You, as the loving parent, and through all your OBEDIENT children, try so desperately to tell your “wayward child” THE TRUTH about THE ENEMY, but they just simply won’t listen…..

THE ENEMY is now their “god” and YOU, the loving parent, are now spiritually left in the dust in their life! And so NOW, when this “wayward child” demands to come home but hurts you again and again and again, you have NO CHOICE but to follow up with your ultimatem………..and leave THEM in the dust, eternally perishing in fire………which is sadly what your “wayward child” had secretly wanted all along by NOT listening to you, the loving parent!

So it is with God! He is like the “loving parent” and “creator” that desperately loves us and wants us to love him back and obey him! But IF we choose NOT to obey him and NOT to accept his eternal gift of Salvation through Jesus, then he has NO CHOICE but to throw us into the lake of fire for all eternity! And he takes NO PLEASURE in that! Absolutely NONE!

In fact, 2 Peter 3:9 states: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

Translation? Jesus does not want anyone to “perish”. But IF a person chooses (by their own actions) to REJECT CHRIST and his commandments, then Jesus has no choice but to ALLOW that unfortunate soul to “perish”. Jesus can’t undo what he SAYS he will do, cause otherwise, he wouldn’t be God! Think about it, folks! 

Plus John 3:16 boldly declares: “For God [The Heavenly Father] so loved the world [mankind], that he [The Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] shall not perish [go to the lake of fire for eternity] but have eternal life” [Eternal Life with Jesus Christ in “Paradise”] 

The Isaiah 5:20/Ephesians 6:12 WARS – Overtaking A Town Near YOU!

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sightWoe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” – [Isaiah 5:20-23]

Okay, starting off here, lets just take a real quick look at some of the things that Jesus condemns and considers “an abomination” (according to the scriptures, both Old Testament AND New Testament):

  • Abortion
  • Homosexuality
  • Cross-dressing
  • Transgenderism
  • Sexual relations outside of marriage
  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Drunkeness
  • Cussing (i.e. saying the Lord’s name in vain)
  • Adultery/Sexual promiscuity
  • Divorce & Remarriage OUTSIDE of biblical allocations
  • Premarital sex
  • ETC.

And now, take a look around you at today’s world and today’s society. Nearly EVERY single thing on that list (and then some) is RUNNING RAMPANT in today’s society and in today’s world! (Sad, isn’t it?) In fact, ALL of these things are now seen as “good” or “OK” in today’s secular world, while the bible/biblical values are seen (by the “secular world”, anyways) as “bad, bad, bad!”

In the year 2015 and on, we’ve seen SEVERAL cases of born-again Christians attacked for their faith in Jesus Christ and FOR the bible, God’s Written Word! Christian bakers being sued for not making a “gay wedding cake”, a professor getting in trouble for not referring to a student by their “prefered transgender pronoun”, Kim Davis receiving alot of flack for refusing to sign a “gay marriage certificate”, etc. And the “attacks” on Christians and/or the bible have only gotten worse over the years! 

In fact, it’s now gotten so bad that some have even gone so far as to use THE BIBLE ITSELF **in** their attacks against Christians! (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?) 

In fact, here’s an opinion piece from a publication that, oddly enough, quotes Isaiah 5:20 and even starts off by using it in the correct context right after quoting it (wow, I’m amazed), but then further goes on to “twist” the piece to do what it (the writing piece itself) claims it’s NOT doing (i.e. putting all Republican Christians into a single box).

The piece more or less claims (between the lines) that one is not truly “Christian” if they voted Republican or one is not truly “Christian” if they didn’t vote for Democrats/*social justice!* The piece then ends with a “battle call” to “join the resistance/join the *Democratic Social Justice cause*.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/calling-good-what-is-evil-and-evil-what-is-good_us_5852eac9e4b0b333cf73ec52

But how can that BE? How can an entire “movement” that goes against nearly EVERY single biblical practice call itself “Christian” in any WAY, shape or form? That’s what really brittles my spiritual bones, folks! Democrat/Social Justice policy is in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM even *remotely* “Christian”. Practically EVERY SINGLE PLATFORM they fight for on the Democratic/*Social Justice Platform* is UNBIBLICAL! I can PROVE it to you! The Democratic (*Social Justice*) Party CHAMPIONS such things as:

  • LATE-TERM ABORTION (OR RATHER ABORTION IN GENERAL)
  • HOMOSEXUALITY
  • TRANSGENDERISM/SEX “CHANGES”
  • DRAG QUEEN “STORY HOUR” WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
  • GAY “MARRIAGE”
  • GAY “ADOPTION”
  • LGBT “PROMOTION” (EVEN AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN)
  • TAKING BIBLE/PRAYER OUT OF SCHOOLS
  • GOING AFTER “PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTERS”
  • GENDER IDEOLOGY
  • ETC.

Now lets turn to the bible to see why NONE of those things under the Democratic/*Social Justice Umbrella* are BIBLICAL! **NONE!**

So what is “Social Justice” about, you might ask? I’m glad you asked! Social “Justice”, as it is known today in 2019, is something ENTIRELY DIFFERENT than what it very first started out as during the Civil Rights Movement. During the Civil Rights Movement, it was about pure Civil Rights. Social justice (in 2019) is defined as: “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth (i.e. SOCIALISM, anyone?), opportunities, and privileges within a society”.

However, NOW, in the year 2019 and beyond, it’s about things that go WELL BEYOND “civil rights” (i.e. gender ideology, race/gender shaming – i.e. “toxic masculinity” , “white priviledge”, homosexual “rights”, PROMOTION OF SOCIALISM, etc.) In fact, just 4 days ago (on January 29, 2019), Noah Rothman released a book entitled: UNJUST –  SOCIAL JUSTICE & THE UNMASKING OF AMERICA“, which discusses those very issues, plus more!

 

And just to provide the most latest example, on January 9th of this year (2019), Kathy Tran (D-Virginia) introduced TWO new Democratic/*Social Justice* bills: ONE bill was a LATE-TERM ABORTION BILL that allows abortions UP UNTIL BIRTH (HB-2491), while her OTHER bill (HB-2495) was a “Pro-Life” bill……FOR CATEPILLARS!!!!!

LATE-TERM ABORTION BILL:

http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?191+sum+HB2491

PRO-LIFE BILL……FOR CATEPILARS:

https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?191+sum+HB2495

Therefore folks, this SERIOUSLY raises the questions (for both Conservatives and Liberals, alike): Just what TYPE of society, nation and WORLD do we live in, when legislation is now being introduced that gives CATEPILLARS more “rights” than FULL-TERM-JUST-ABOUT-TO-BE-BORN **HUMAN BABIES**?????? WHO gets to define what’s “human” or not, besides God himself (who CREATED humans, in the first place?????) And if full-term human babies don’t have any “rights”, then who DOES? And WHO gets to decide? Do you see where I’m going with this, folks???

In other words, the Democratic *Social Justice Warriors* are now trying to RE-DEFINE what’s **HUMAN!** (Just like they previously tried to REDEFINE what “marriage” is, REDEFINE what a “family” is, REDEFINE what “love” is, REDEFINE what “gender” is, REDEFINE what *true righteousness/child of God* is!!!!) Does that scare you? Shock you? Horrify you? IT SHOULD, FOLKS! Because that’s the type of ‘world’, ‘nation’ and ‘end times society’ that we live in, now…..where animals/insects/bugs/A.I. robots/etc. now have more “rights” than the average, human!

(And hey – if you thougtht that New York was the ONLY state with late-term abortion on the books – or soon to be on the books – THINK AGAIN! It’s ALREADY in Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont, Washington D.C. and Oregon – and will SOON have bills for it introduced and/or passed in VIRGINIA, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts!)

But see, folks? That’s what they do. If the world was a football field……..they keep removing the goal posts of “abominations” further and further down the field. They use “buzz words” and “buzz phrases” as their “ammo” to get this accomplished (“Homophobia/Transphobia”, “Islamophobia”, “Toxic Masculinity”, “White Priviledge”, “Love Wins” and “Choice”, anyone?) They even go so far as to LIE to the American (and global, non-American) people! In short, they’ll stop at NOTHING to achieve their goals of REMOVING GOD/THE BIBLE/BIBLICAL MORALS FROM SOCIETY AND THE WORLD and instead, installing the “Darwinian way of life”.

They “claim” it’s nothing but a POLITICAL fight. But at the heart of the matter, it’s NOT so much a political fight so much as it is actually a SPIRITUAL FIGHT…….the fight between good and evil. But in the year 2019 and beyond, the forces of darkness are trying to BLEND the lines between good and evil so that neither one is clearly distinctable anymore! And thus, the Ephesians 6:12 WAR and the Isaiah 5:20 WARS have started! And they’re BOTH only gonna get worse over time!

And hey, if you already thought the “twisting Isaiah 5:20 out of context” article by the “liberal publication” was bad enough, I was quickly able to find FOUR seperate articles (back to back) that tried to use THE BIBLE ITSELF (of all things) to try to claim that “abortion” was NOT condemned in the bible!

(And again, please note: the liberal publication in question is likely one of MANY that does this sort’ve thing……..using the bible out of context, in order to “attack” the God-fearing Christians out there that DO use the bible in the correct, biblical context……But remember: the people at these types of liberal publications are “lost souls” and are VERY spiritually deceived and we must PRAY for them, in the name of Jesus!) 

Below is a list of 50+ bible verses that DO condemn abortion/the concept of it, while underneath all the verses, I have included the 4 “unbiblical” articles in question:

And on the case of homosexuality, I quickly found EIGHT articles from the liberal publication in question that attempt to use the bible (once again) to *falsely* claim that homosexuality isn’t a sin! EIGHT! And this is just the articles that I know about…….there might be more…….

And once again, homosexuality is CONDEMNED in the bible in: OLD TESTAMENT in Leviticus 5:3, Leviticus 18:22 (24-30), Leviticus 20:13, Genesis 18:20, Genesis 19:4-13 (*19:5* key verse), Judges 19: 22-24, 1 Kings 14: 22-24, 1 Kings 15: 11-13, 1 Kings 22:46, 2 Kings 23: 4-7 (*23:7* key verse), Ezekiel 16:50, & Daniel 11:37 and NEW TESTAMENT in Romans 1: 18-32, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11, 1 Timothy 1: 8-11, Jude 1:4, Jude 1:7, Jude 1:19, Matthew 19:1-8 (*4-6* key verse), Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5: 3-7, Colossians 3:5-7, Titus 1:16, & Revelation 21:27!

The eight “unbiblical” articles are as follows:

But now, let us unpack this (the Democrat *Social Justice* causes) a bit further and take a much deeper look into all of their “buzz words” and “buzz phrases” and what those words/phrases ACTUALLY mean:

  • “Planned Parenthood” = PLANNED MURDERHOOD
  • “Choice” = THE CHOICE TO SEXUALLY SIN AND TO MURDER – *FREELY AND OPENLY* AND WITHOUT LEGAL REPERCUSSIONS OR LEGAL LIMITS
  • “Love/Love Wins” = SODOMY WINS/SIN WINS
  • “Gay Pride” = SIN PRIDE/SODOMY PRIDE/PRIDE OF SODOMY
  • “Homophobia” = HOMOSEXUALS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Islamophobia” = MUSLIMS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Transphobia” = TRANSGENDERS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Born This Way” = AN UNREPENTANT SINNER’S WAY OF TRYING TO SAY “GOD MADE A MISTAKE”
  • “White Priviledge” = RACE-SHAMING (SOMETHING THAT THE BIBLE SPECIFICALLY CONDEMNS IN GALATIANS 3: 28-29! And please note: I am ALSO against “race-shaming” of **ANY** race in general – be it African-American, Asian, Hispanic, etc.! 
  • “Toxic Masculinity” = LEFTIST **FEAR** OVER GOD’S NATURAL CREATION OF TESTOSTERONE-DOMINANT BIOLOGICAL MALES (THE WAY BIOLOGICAL MALES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE!)
  • “Cisgender” = LEFTIST **FEAR** OVER WHAT IS BIOLGICALLY “NORMAL
  • “Death With Dignity” = LEFTISTS TRYING TO INSTALL A **POSITIVE** WORD (“DIGNITY”) WITH A *NEGATIVE/NON-BIBLICAL ACTION* – I.E. “SUICIDE”
  • “Reproductive Rights/Freedom” = THE RIGHT FOR A NON-SAVED PERSON OR LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN TO “SEXUALLY SIN” – AND NOT FACE REPERCUSSION OVER THAT “SEXUAL SIN”
  • “My Body, My Choice” = THE “RIGHT” FOR A PREGNANT WOMAN TO KILL THE BABY THAT IS WITHIN HER (i.e. THROUGH ABORTION, ETC.)
  • “Abortion” = REMOVING THE UNBORN CHILD OUT OF THE WOMB – PIECE BY PIECE, LIMB BY LIMB
  • “Late-term abortion” = REMOVING THE FULLY-TERMED/NEARLY FULLY-TERMED CHILD OUT OF THE WOMB – PIECE BY PIECE, LIMB BY LIMB
  • “Partial-birth abortion” = MURDERING A CHILD THAT IS BORN PRE-MATURELY
  • “LGBT” = ACRONYMS FOR SEVERAL WORDS BY WHICH TO IDENTIFY *SODOMY* WITH
  • “LGBT rights” = THE RIGHT FOR *SODOMITES* TO CONTINUE SINNING/LIVING IN SIN/SODOMY WITHOUT ANY MAJOR REPERCUSSIONS (LEGALLY OR SOCIETALLY)

But yet, the REALLY sad & ironic thing is THIS: The people that are seemingly MOST ADVERSE to hearing the gospel – (the TRUE gospel and not the “watered-down” versions taught in many American churches today) – are the ones that Jesus Christ wants to save THE MOST!

Jesus says the following in Luke 5:31-32 [New Testament, Book of Luke, Chapter 5, Verses 31-32]: “And Jesus answering said unto them, ‘They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance“.

In other words, Jesus is far more concerned with saving the ones who are MOST ADVERSE to hearing the gospel than those who are ALREADY OPEN to hearing AND obeying the gospel since those who are ALREADY OPEN to AND obeying the gospel in their hearts are ALREADY saved (in the Lord Jesus’s eyes), while those who are NOT OPEN to the gospel are the ones who need to get saved THE MOSTmake any sense, people?

But how can he HEAL them and SAVE them, when most of them just flat out REFUSE to be saved in the name of Jesus? And yet others MOCK the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ, secretly trying to convince themselves that it’s too good to be true! But ya want to know the IRONIC thing? It’s actually SATAN’S lies that are “too good to be true”. 

Satan LIES to Progressive/Democratic Social Justice Liberals, day in and day out (as he does the whole of humanity, don’t get me wrong, here). He tells them LIES such as: “There’s no such things as heaven or hell”, “Jesus is just a myth”, “Republicans are the devil”, “There’s no such thing as evil”, “It’s A-OK to be gay/transgender”, “Jesus only sends people like Hitler to hell”, “everybody goes to heaven – unless they were Hitler”, “capitalism is evil”, “Pro-Life is EVIL”, “Traditional Marriage is EVIL”, “Traditional Gender is EVIL”, “The Bible is EVIL”, etc.

And sadly, many Progressive liberals FALL for those lies, hook, line and sinker! And BECAUSE they (as a whole) traditionally don’t have a traditional biblical background and/or “spiritual grounding”, they’re “easy pickins” for all the Devil’s LIES! And most of them don’t even REALIZE that they’ve been deceived! And THE BIGGEST lie Satan tells them is “There is no god – You are your own god!” And it’s apparent in most of the “Social Justice/Democratic legislation” that we see today.

Lets look at a prime example. A new and coming “Socialist Democrat” was quoted as saying they desired to tax the extremely rich at a 70% marginal tax rate! 70%! This is no joke, folks! And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that would just WRECK THE U.S. ECONOMY TO SHREDS! (Remember “Greece”, anyone? Where all the government employees made themselves some “nice” paychecks, while all the non-gov’t workers economically suffered?) 

Why? For one, if the extremely wealthy (who provide the BULK of most U.S. jobs) were taxed 7O PERCENT of their income, they’d rationally take their wealth & assets elsewhere, thus LEAVING the U.S.! This would TAKE AWAY millions if not TRILLIONS of U.S. jobs! And with massive employment then running rampant, people would then need to depend on the government. But because hardly NO-ONE would be working, the government wouldn’t even HAVE hardly any money to give (since, remember, government MAKES alot of its money off the TAXES of hard-working Americans?) since all the weathly people theorethically left, due to the EXTREMELY high taxes! And that is when the U.S. Country would turn into the next “Venezuela!”

(Disclaimer: If you’re Venezuelan and reading this right now, please don’t take offense at what I am saying. I am not attacking your country personally, I am only merely pointing out how Socialist Maduro has destroyed your country from within by all of his socialist policies. And HIS type of socialist policies are what OUR so-called upcoming version of him (as a whole) is now trying to do here in America – so hopefully you can understand where I’m coming from on this?) 

And not only THAT, but now, they want to sponsor what liberal Democrats are calling “The New Green Deal”. In other words, they want to BAN AIR TRAVEL and BAN FOSSIL FUELS – two things that are CRITICIAL to the U.S. infrastructure & U.S. Economy! And not JUST the U.S. Economy but the GLOBAL ECONOMY as well. And it’s all based on “fear of climate change”. But yet, why do MANY proponents of global warming fly their own private jets, etc.? A private jet certainly does more to the so-called “climate variation” than a “cow farting”, etc.  

Not to mention there’s also a couple of things called H.A.A.R.P and Project Bluebeam (which is “geo-engineered climate”). In other words, it’s a “false climate” that THEY (the elite) create, in order to get the results they want. It’s really not any different than China creating “fake moons”, “fake rain” and “fake suns”. In fact, there’s ALOT of things that are geo-engineered in today’s world and it’s not just limited to weather. Even our own FOOD SUPPLY is now being “geo-engineered”. Don’t believe me? Check it out:

SNICKERS BAR, GENETIC ENGINEERING CHEERIOS, GENETIC ENGINEERING

In my humble opinion, the drive for “climate change” is really about the leftists wanting to secretly destroy the U.S. and global economies for their own personal “socialist” gain. Eventually, I believe that that the leftists hope to have Socialism EVERYWHERE, ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE (not just here in the U.S.!)

But……in light of Revelation 13:15, the “drive” for world-wide Socialism makes PERFECT SENSE, considering that The Antichrist will  have ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants under a ONE WORLD ECONOMY! And so, the Antichrist can’t really do that with Capitalism, now, can He? That’s why he’ll very likely need a “Socialist-type framework” by which to get the ball rolling IN his One World Economy, One World Government and also One World Religion. Think about it, folks! 

Now, to be certain, the Isaiah 5:20 and Ephesians 6:12 END TIMES SPIRITUAL WARS are working both separately AND synonymously together. Now…….what do those bible passages say again? I’m glad you asked! They are both as follows:

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

“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

Originally, it started out with what I call “The Ephesians 6:12 War”. In my opinion, it started between the year 2009-2012. And post 2012 is when I very first started noticing that what I call “The Isaiah 5:20 War” was starting to kick in, ON TOP OF the already existing “Ephesians 6:12 War“, yet, appearing to work synonymously with it. Ephesians 6:12 specifically talks about DEMONIC spirits, while Isaiah 5:20 is more or less talking about their “human backers” (which, in THIS case, is now THE DEMOCRATIC/*SOCIAL JUSTICE* PARTY!!!)

True, the Republican Party is not perfect and has its own lists of faults. But as far as aligning with the bible, the Republican Party is more closely aligned with the bible than the Democratic Party likely EVER will be! For WHAT political party is trying to keep God/the bible/prayer out of schools? The Democratic party! And what political party is trying to harrass children with gay/trans propaganda in the schools, even as young as 5 years old? Answer: The Democratic party! And WHAT political party is behind all those LGBT-ers who sued Christian businesses for not portaking somehow in their “gay weddings?” Once again, the Democratic party! 

But again, the Democratic Party keeps veering further and further LEFT! Now infanticide is becoming “the norm” within The Democratic Party – as a whole – and I personally think that’s what they (as a socialist progressive whole) secretly wanted all along! It’s like today’s times are starting to slowly morph into Nazi Germany ALL OVER AGAIN!

P.S: How IRONIC – that the so-called “movement” that CLAIMS it fights for HUMAN RIGHTS – i.e. *Social Justice* – does NOT stand up and fight for FULL-TERM ***HUMAN*** BABIES but yet, fights for the “rights” of unborn babies of EVERY OTHER SPECIES – i.e. insects/animals! 

When I was merely 18 years old (my senior year of High-School), I remember my Christian grandmum telling me that during the times of The End (or rather, “The End Times”), that there was gonna be ANOTHER “Holocaust” – of Christians and Jews! And I have to admit, I wasn’t well-versed on The Book of Revelation at that time, so I wasn’t really sure what to think back then.

Only NOW do I realize the truth and brevity of her words! She was essentially talking about Euthansia…AND abortion……all in one!!!!!!!!!!! And if I remember correctly, she said it would start out “small”…..baby steps…..and then, eventually, grow darker and darker over time, just as it did in Nazi Germany!!!!!! [Note: Her words are interesting in context of the “Revelation 13:15-type society!”] 

And one of THE MOST telling things about Nazi Germany is THIS: Nearly ALL the Jews (as a whole) NEVER thought it could or would happen to them………..and YET, IT DID!!!!! And I sort’ve see the same exact pattern playing out with many Christian Conservatives, as well! “Oh, that could NEVER happen to us…..ESPECIALLY in a Westernized nation”. Little do they know……..their “Holocaust Germany” is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! ARE they prepared! DO they have the TOTAL FAITH that if they were torchured and/or imprisoned tomorrow, they would be able to KEEP that faith in Christ, NO MATTER WHAT? My spiritual gut tells me that most Christians aren’t even 1/3 ready for what’s coming!!!!!!! Folks, it’s gonna get BAD……REALLY, REALLY BAD!!!!!

In fact, human babies and the elderly/terminally ill are just the slight “stepping stone”. What they REALLY, TRULY WANT (or rather, what Satan and his hordes and hordes of demons living INSIDE of the hearts, souls and minds of far-left Democrats want) is TOTAL ANNIHILATION OF **ALL THOSE** WHO DON’T AGREE WITH THEM!!!!! THAT is what’s coming, folks! (As per Revelation 13:15!) And so, if YOU are not prepared for what’s coming (spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and/or psychologically) – and what’s soon coming in today’s world – spiritual persection wise – is pretty darn UNIMAGINABLE, YOU will be SPIRITUALLY DESTROYED!!!!!!

And again, I don’t say this to SCARE YOU but to WARN YOU! In fact, just imagine if the Jews (upon VERY first being “persecuted”) had just left Germany and not stayed. The outcome of the “war” might’ve been totally different for them! But yet, most of them let their PRIDE get in the way of their decision-making! They said to themselves, within their hearts: We’re Jews! We’re God’s chosen people! Therefore, our enemies will NEVER, EVER be able to touch us!” Little did they know, they’d soon be forced off to concentration camps to be tochured to death, gassed, starved, or any other number of hellish things!

And unfortunately, I think that’s pretty much the same attitude with MANY Christians today! Oh, we’re Christians! We’re God’s chosen people/children of God! Therefore, our enemies – specifically enemy nations – will NEVER be able to touch us! Little do they know, Revelation 13:15 says that ALL whom refuse The Mark of the Beast SHALL BE KILLED! (And severe persecution, torchure and imprisonment is probably included in that “persecution package”, somehow).

The Jews thought (as a whole) that nothing could happen to them during WWII and yet, it did! The Christians of today (as a whole) now think that nothing’s gonna happen to THEM either, but they’re in for QUITE a rude awakening!

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” – [Revelation 13:15]

However, let me provide you with a bit of HOPE. Remember when Moses was leading the Israelites out of Egypt and they had no food with them at the time (having run out of their unleavened bread), so THE LORD PROVIDED THEM MANNA FROM HEAVEN? What makes you think for just ONE second that the good Lord’s gonna provide manna from heaven for the ancient Israelites in THEIR critical time of need, yet NOT provide some sort of “manna” for born-again Christians during the End Times in THEIR critical time of need (provided that they have the FAITH that God WILL provide and do NOT in any, way, shape or form take/accept The Mark of the Beast)?????? It stands to reason!

I leave you all with THESE passages:

“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” – 1 Peter 5:10

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit” – Luke 12:24-25

 

 

 

 

 

Are WE What We Preach?

Many people accuse us Christians (or pastors/evangelists, specifically) of either ONE or two things:

A). Watering DOWN the gospel

B). Being overbearing with the gospel

And neither of these two scenarios are very good. Because in BOTH cases, the Lord’s people (after reading/listening to one of a pastor’s “watered-down” or “overbearing” gospel sermons/messages) are DEPRIVED of the Lord’s TRUE message that they need to hear and thus, there’s NO change of heart and NO true repentance in their lives! 

But again, what’s worse? Feeling as though you’re “MORE THAN good enough” for the Lord, only to come find out on Judgement Day that you’re NOT? Or to feel as though you’re “NOT good ENOUGH” for the Lord, and thus, give up TRYING and then ALSO end up on the bad side of Jesus on Judgement Day, cause you just gave up trying a LONG time ago?

Well, in either case, the BEST approach to preaching is somewhere in the middle. Firm, yet gentle. Firm enough where the “congregation” or “assembly” gets the message, yet, gentle enough where they confidently feel as though they CAN overcome any “sin” or “shortcomings” in their lives in the name of Jesus and that they CAN fully repent of all their sins in the name of Jesus! 

Also as well: There’s a common misconception that ONLY a pastor is qualified to teach the Written Word of God. But that’s NOT the case!

2 Peter 1: 20-21 states: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretationFor the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost”

2 Corinthians 3:6 says: Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”

2 Corinthians 6:4 proclaims: “But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses”

ANY Christian who’s moved by the Holy Ghost is more than qualified to “teach” the Written Word of God (the bible) whenever the Holy Spirit drives them to. However, that being said, many Christians feel ill-equipped to “teach” the bible and would much rather leave it up to the hands of a “pastor/evangelist”. However……AS their biblical knowledge INCREASES over time, the Holy Spirit will no doubt start using EVERY Christian to preach his Word, NOT JUST pastors & evangelists!

However, that being said, there’s SEVERAL things that we Christians (and/or pastors/evangelists) have to look out for! And that’s THIS: IF and WHEN you start preaching the Written Word of God to others, you best make sure that: A) What you’re preaching is actually biblical and not just based on thoughts/feelings/conjecture and also that B) You actually PRACTICE what you preach!

So, for example, if you preach about the importance of having “patience” in one’s life (as per biblical standards), do YOU constantly lose your OWN patience with people or in general? And if you preach about how others should be more than willing to help the needy, do you YOURSELF help the needy? What about drinking? Do YOU preach that others shouldn’t drink at all, then kick back and relax and drink several beers during the football game with your friends (if a man) or go out for a pitcher of half-priced margaritas with the ladies (if a woman)?

You might not know or realize this but your “thoughts” & “behavior” are ALWAYS on display if you’re a Christian — ESPECIALLY if you’re a pastor/evangelist! People are watching you…….both Christian AND non-Christian people, ALIKE! That’s WHY you want to make 100% sure that what you’re preaching is NOT ONLY 100% biblical, through and through and NOT watered-down in any way but ALSO is what you’re practicing at home behind closed doors as well. 

Because truth be told, people can usually pick up on insincerity – someone living a “double life”. In fact, of all the “disgraced mega pastors/evangelists” lately, some of their “flock” said they weren’t surprised at all of the allegations. Because deep, deep down inside, those very few KNEW, somehow. Their gut REFUSED to let them rest! Plus some of them, after finding out about the unprofessional conduct of their pastor/church leaders, have likely fallen away from the faith & stopped attending church. Why? Because they weren’t truly being fed the Word of God, just like they weren’t being truly lead by example!

But again, this does NOT just apply to pastors/evangelists, this applies to ALL of us as Christians!

Please remember what JESUS said in Matthew 5: 13-16:Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidNeither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

Translation? What does being the “salt of the Earth” MEAN? It means that we are to PRESERVE God’s Written Word, The Bible/The Gospel the way that salt preserves meat! And what does it mean to be the “light of the world?” It means that in a global world where people are CONSTANTLY chasing after “darkness”/”secularism”/”popular culture”, that we OURSELVES are INSTEAD supposed to be chasing after RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

So let me put this in perspective a bit. Today’s global culture is all about Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Hollywood, Music, Movies, Etc. However, a person can use those things for GOOD or for EVIL. Sadly, most people use those things for EVIL or VANITY or BOTH! However, it’s possible for a CHRISTIAN to use those platforms for GOOD; for the sake of Christ’s Kingdom!

Though there is much “Jesus-mocking” all over the place, Christians can use that as an opportunity to preach the gospel in its unadulterated form! For example, someone mocks Christ on Twitter, a Christian can come along and preach the gospel to the mocker on Twitter and lovingly show them how they are wrong. Same thing with Youtube, etc.

[[However, that being said, there is now some Christian music that’s gone over to mainstream (I thought we were supposed to be “set apart”?) and not sure if Jesus is too pleased with people that try to put a “Christian spin” on modern “trends”. As for Hollywood, I know some Christians are now trying to “mix” with Hollywood and make Christian movies out there but for me, the jury’s still out on that one! I don’t know, to me, that’s kind’ve like trying to set up a Southern Baptist convention in the middle of the “gay San Francisco Castro district” or something]].

I will no doubt have to admit that even I myself (a preacher/teacher of God’s Written Word, the Bible) have sometimes fallen short of the mark, here. Upon closer examining of my own spiritual walk with Christ, I had noticed some minor “hypocrisy” that I hadn’t picked up on before (before others — both Christian and non-Christian alike) had pointed them out to me. And Jesus had no doubt utilized those people to get His point(s) across to me. And not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not but HERE are the 7 type(s) of hypocrisy that were pointed out to me:

1). There’s been some cases where I came across as “holier than thou” or “too judgmental”

2). There’s been cases where I came across as “too soft” or “not being firm enough in my biblical declarations of Jesus/the gospel”

3). There’s been occasional times in my life where I unintentionally (for short periods of time) held “grudges” against certain individuals in my life, in spite of preaching the importance of FORGIVENESS!

4). There’s been some cases where I preached against “gossip”, yet, found myself being “extremely persuaded” to participate in it at work, etc. Especially when a coworker would grab my arm and ask: “Don’t you think so and so is this way or that way? Don’t you think so?” and wouldn’t leave me alone until they got some sort of half-hearted response outta me. 

5). I watched (and liked) the TV Show called “Dark Matter”, even in spite of having had “spiritually denounced” the concepts of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence!)

6). Though I “denounce” Christmas as an “unbiblical holiday” brought about by “Pagan traditions”, I find myself unwittingly “caving in” to it every year just to “keep the peace” within my family (who DON’T yet fully realize or CARE that Christmas is “not biblical!”)

7). There were times where I found myself “arguing” with fellow Christians over what is biblical doctrine and what is not, not fully realizing that we ALL mature IN Christ at DIFFERENT RATES and at DIFFERENT TIMES! For NO two people are fully matured in Christ at the same exact time! 

8). I had previously stated in a previous post/sermon about how Jesus had FULLY spiritually delivered me from soda pop/soft drink addiction awhile back, only to most recently in the last 12 months or so get “partially re-addicted to them”.

[March 27, 2018 UPDATE: I am now proud to say that I have ONCE AGAIN knocked myself away from partial soda pop re-addiction to NO ADDICTION! PRAISE JESUS! And THIS time, I pray I stick WITH it!] 

However, ever since ALL these “revelations” about some of my preaching not fully matching up with my true-life “actions”, I’m now more determined than EVER to UNDO the 8 “Hypocrisies” that were found in me/this Yeshua777 ministry! So PLEASE PRAY FOR ME at this time that I will be able to CONTINUE to UNDO the 8 “Hyprocrisies” that were most recently found in me/this ministry! Because I want and need to be a STRONG leader of righteousness at this time! 

Also as well: NOW is the time to CRITICALLY examine our spiritual walk with Christ! We’re living in the Times of the End so believe me folks, this is NO TIME to be playing around with your eternal salvation! (Especially when there’s a very good chance the U.S. may soon go to war with North Korea/foreign nations! Cause WHO KNOWS what could happen in the U.S. or the world tomorrow!)

That’s why we MUST critically examine our spiritual walk with Christ and we MUST be spiritually prepared, NO MATTER WHAT!!!! So I ask you THIS: How is YOUR spiritual walk in Christ? IF you were to die today and suddenly find yourself in the Lord’s heavenly courtroom, would the Devil have ANY sort of “hypocrisy charges” he could bring against you? If so, what are they and what do YOU plan to do now to UNDO them, in the name of Jesus? Go about undoing them NOW in the name of Jesus, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed, folks! Time is of the essence!

The problem with many of today’s Christians is that they’re starting to get worn out, exhausted, and LAZY in their faith/spiritual walk with Jesus. As a matter of fact, Francis Cahn examines this very “hypocrital” attitude in the video down below:

 

Did the results surprise any of you at all? They shouldn’t! The last 2/3 of the video is what really got me, though. How AWFUL that “teacher of the gospel” must’ve felt when he realized that his total “hypocrisy” had cost him a SOUL! A soul that was likely not fully saved in the name of Jesus at the time of death! (Though I pray & hope that Jesus had a little mercy upon that soul as that soul was DESPERATELY searching for the answer of Jesus, just prior to death!) 

So I end with and ask EVERY Christian out there THIS one last question: Are YOU what YOU preach? If not, it’s not too late to turn things around, in the name of Jesus! For HE is the over-comer of ALL! Pretty encouraging, isn’t it? 🙂 For there is NO power in the UNIVERSE that’s greater than HIS heavenly, divine power!

Jesus is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help each and every one of us overcome our sins/spiritual hypocrisies! And any Christian out there who claims they’ve never even ONCE had/experienced a spiritual hypocrisy? Come on, now! We ALL have from time to time! Romans 3:23 says that we are ALL sinners, and that we ALL fall short of the glory of God! But the good news is that Jesus was crucified for our sins SO THAT if we SEEK him and call out to him in prayer and REPENT of our sins (that means, to give up and stop doing them), he is just to forgive us of all our sins!

I hope this message has blessed you & encouraged you, in the name of the Lord! Have a Happy Passover & Feast of Unleavened Bread 2018! I love you all! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A LIFE WITHOUT JESUS IS MEANINGLESS!

  • “When I grow up, I want to be a ________
  • “I want to live in ________, someday”
  • “I want to major in ___________ in college”
  • “I want to travel the world by age 30”
  • “I want to give to charity more”
  • “I want to be married by the age of 25”
  • I want to develop a cure for cancer”

It’s not a bad thing to have goals in life, in general. They help set us and motivates us for greater causes in our lives. But IF those goals don’t align with Jesus/the bible, then what GOOD are they?

“For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world but lose his own soul? For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

– Mark 8: 36-37

In other words, a person can have all the money, success, fame, college degrees and “credentials”/”titles” in the world, but if they don’t have Jesus Christ in their lives, then all the “temporal fame, pleasure and wealth” will not save them from their sins, for ONLY Jesus Christ can save them for the sins! A person without Jesus is a “lost soul”……..that person is nothing but an empty, hallow SHELL of a soul that’s DESPERATELY in need of Salvation in Christ!

Revelation 3: 17-20 proclaims: “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent”

Many people (specifically non-believers or those of other religions but even many “Christians” themselves these days) think they don’t NEED Jesus, in order to be able to ETERNALLY SURVIVE! But those folks are VERY SADLY MISTAKEN! In fact, EVEN many CHRISTIANS today think they don’t NEED Jesus in their day to day lives. This is both sad and tragic! For if only they KNEW the total weight of God’s Judgment upon an unbelieving, idol-worshiping, lazy & ungrateful mankind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Think of a toddler, for instance. Think about how that toddler’s parents (in general) are constantly watching over them, to make sure they’re not doing anything wrong and (if Christian/Judeo-Christian) to guide them into the RIGHT path of righteousness! (And to make sure they’re tying their shoes correctly, etc.) And after awhile, the said toddler in question, begins to “resent it” (hello, the “terrible threes”).

“NO! I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT MYSELF, I DON’T **NEED** YOUR HELP, MOMMY/DADDY!”

But yet, the parent is usually still “supervising” their shoe-tying, etc., ANYWAYS, am I right? haha. And WHEN the toddler notices this, they become EVEN MORE adamant about wanting to stalk off into the next room, DETERMINED to tie their own shoes, etc. The toddler thinks in that moment, “I CAN DO IT, MYSELF! I DON’T NEED YOUR *CORRECTIONS/SUPERVISION!*”

So it goes with mankind. We’re all a bunch of lazy, sinning, ungrateful, unbelieving “toddlers” that think WE know what’s best for our LIVES! So we constantly attempt to make ourselves bigger, better, stronger, more resilient, etc. But IN the process of doing so, we drift further and further away from Jesus, our CREATOR! And IN so doing, our souls become more and more empty, a HALLOW SHELL where “potential righteousness in Jesus’s name” once stood. Our souls are then likened to DEAD BONES WITH NO LIFE IN THEM! For Jesus IS Life!

Romans 6:23 states: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”

But when it comes to defying Jesus/his creation, one thing is certain…….He doesn’t like what these “gene-editing scientists” are doing down here on Earth (changing, rearranging HIS natural DNA design), thinking the whole time that THEY know better than God. Yet, Jesus keeps trying to spiritually warn them OVER AND OVER AGAIN (even as “gently” and “patiently” as he can, AMIDST His Divine Wrath)……….

In fact, Jesus sends MANY of his “Messengers” to try to warn these secular doctors and scientists that they really DON’T know the long-term implications of DNA-editing. In fact, there was a VERY specific reason why Jesus created DNA in a specific pattern & a specific way.

And folks, we’ve discovered what happened last time when Satan and his demons (fallen angels) tried to “pervert God’s natural DNA”. The children of the nephilim came about. So do we REALLY want to see — the long-term implications — of what happens when the natural human race starts “getting tampered with” in the modern day? 

But yet, many of the genetic scientists, in their “gusto” for “the next best thing, genetically speaking”, sadly, don’t seem to be listening to the Lord’s witnesses or even REALIZING what the long-term implications may be (as a whole). Yet, a very small number of them ARE likely *secretly* troubled for the possible long-term implications of DNA-tampering…….most of them probably won’t come out and say it. And their views would likely not ever get broadcast on the mainstream news. But I’m willing to bet they’re out there somewhere (no matter how small in number they may be). 

And many of these “somewhat hesitant” scientists likely did a few test runs and came to find out that YES, DNA-tampering DOES have potentially harmful long-term implications. But exactly what these scientists DO from HERE on out, is between them and Almighty God! Some will no doubt choose to IGNORE the evidence of potential DNA “harm”, and keep at it anyways, figuring that the ends justify the means. But yet others I imagine, might possibly start rethinking their position in the whole genetics field and consider “quitting” genetics, altogether [though I pray that they don’t. Because they are FAR more valuable to the genetic PROVING of creationism than they realize!]  

But going back to the main topic, about what a life without Jesus is like. Many upon MANY of today’s people think they “don’t need Him” and/or “Don’t NEED a Savior”. In fact, they live their lives AS IF there’s no God. People (in general) don’t like or want to admit that there’s a God. Because if there’s a God, then THAT would suggest that THAT God has “rules” and “judgments for BREAKING those rules”…….which would even FURTHER suggest that there ARE consequences for breaking those rules, and BECAUSE there’s eternal consequences FOR breaking those divine rules, that would mean they’d need to CHANGE THEIR LIVES!

And see folks, that’s the problem right then and there. Most people are COMFORTABLE with their lives. They don’t WANT to change anything about their lives or their LIFESTYLE. They don’t WANT to admit that they’re a sinner with SIN, in NEED of a Saviour. They want to take the EASY way out. For THEM, it’s a “out of site, out of mind” type of thing. They think they can WILL God to “go away” or “not exist” by simply ACTING like He doesn’t exist and then, living their lives, accordingly!

However……no matter HOW hard they try to WILL God away by their ARDENT DENIAL of HIM, it doesn’t make Him any less real………..or ANY less Wrathful towards ALL unrighteousness. In OTHER words, Jesus exists rather a person believes in Him or not. Heaven and Hell and JUDGMENT exists, rather a person believes in it or not. “I don’t believe in Hell” many people say. But not believing in Hell doesn’t make it any less REAL, folks! Hell is MORE REAL than the air we BREATHE! MORE REAL than the setting Sun! MORE REAL than anything we’ve ever imagined! And someday, the fires of HELL are gonna MERGE INTO the LAKE OF FIRE! [Revelation 20:14]

So in my closing message, here is WHY a life without Jesus is MEANINGLESS! A person can go through their whole entire LIVES “living it up”, going to the best colleges, getting the best jobs, getting the most monetary success that time/money/circumstance can buy, but if Jesus Christ is NOT in their lives, NONE of that is going to matter! Why?

Because someday soon, Jesus is going to create a NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH! The world, as we know it now, will soon PASS AWAY! Plus we will ALL someday soon face THE ETERNAL JUDGMENT SEAT OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHOSE FACE WILL BE **SO** BRIGHT, THAT WE WON’T EVEN BE ABLE TO LOOK AT IT!!!!!!!

And WHEN that happens, the ONLY thing that’ll matter is our spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ! And for those who’ve lived an entire LIFETIME without the BIBLICAL/JEWISH JESUS CHRIST described in the pages of the bible? How UTTERLY TERRIFYING of a thing it would be to fall into the Eternal Hands of Judgement by the Everlasting God of Creation! 

[[NOTE: Jesus Christ keeps a “record book”, if you will, of ALL his faithful, loyal followers. Those people who not only BELIEVE in Him and His words but OBEY THEM! It’s called “The Lamb’s Book of Life”. For Jesus Christ is the Holy Son of God who’s also called THE LAMB OF GOD. Jesus Christ is also LIFE and CREATED LIFE. Therefore, that’s WHY it’s called “THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE”]]. 

Revelation 20:15 says that WHOSOEVER was NOT found written IN the Book of Life WILL be cast into the (Eternal) LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH!!!!! 

LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE

BURINGINLAKEOFFIRE1BURNINGINLAKEOFFIRE3

BURNINGINLAKEOFFIRE2So people, I leave you with THIS: Whatever sin(s) you’re committing right now in your life (be it/they large or small), is it worth AN ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE?  (Remember: ONLY Jesus Christ & Jesus Christ ALONE can set you free from your sins and/or the eternal consequences of your sins, there IS no other way!!!!!!!!!!!) 

JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE DESPERATELY WANTS TO SAVE YOU FROM A LIFE OF SIN AND INNER RESTLESSNESS/DESPAIR BUT HE CAN’T DO THAT IF YOU WON’T LET HIM! And it’s ok if you don’t believe in Him right now, JUST PRAY TO BELIEVE but mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and mind! Just pray the following:

“Jesus, I’m not sure if I believe in you or not. I’ve heard about you from others but have never truly experienced your presence for myself. Just like I’ve heard things from the bible before that seem sort’ve far-fetched today, in today’s world and culture. Please open up my heart, soul and mind, and show me the evidences of these things, and of YOU. I come to you with an open heart and a open mind. It’s not that I DON’T want to believe, per say, I’m just struggling with belief in you/the bible right now. So please show me these things. Please allow me to experience the peace and joy of your presence. Please give me a “new” heart, and a new mind. I want to believe, please help me overcome my unbelief”. 

Mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and mind and he WILL answer your prayer, MARK MY WORDS! (Provided you seek him in prayer WHOLE-HEARTEDLY and not half-heartedly). Cause lets face it, if someone says to you: “Hey, you’re so awesome” but you sense they’re saying it half-heartedly, you’re not gonna feel that they’re being genuine in their “praise” of you, right? But if a person comes to you and says: “Hey, you’re so awesome because x, y, and z”, and gives you details as to WHY they think you’re awesome, then it seems more genuine, right? 🙂 So it is with Jesus! He will honestly and truly reveal himself to you IF you truly, genuinely seek him, MARK MY WORDS! 😉 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GENE-EDITING & IVF, ETC. ARE AN ABOMINATION, PART B

There’s most recently been SEVERAL news articles about “crispr”, the new gene-editing mechanism that’s supposedly supposed to be the “cure-all” for ALL diseases & ailments (such as sickle cell anemia, celiac disease, Etc.)

However, behind “crispr” is a MUCH DARKER STORY….

First of all, crispr is a technique that “cuts and pastes genes” in the genome, in order to CORRECT genes that carry Sickle Cell Anemia, celiac disease, etc. But when the ENTIRE GENOME is inspected, scientists are now seeing a completely DIFFERENT PICTURE!

“Although CRISPR can initiate gene corrections, it can just as easily cause hundreds of unintended and possibly harmful mutations into the genome”, claims a most recent news article @ http://wallstreetpit.com/113548-crispr-dangerous-side-effect-unwanted-mutations/

It can just as easily cause hundreds of UNINTENDED and possibly HARMFUL mutations”. Listen to those words, folks! For it seems even the “science world” is having trouble FULLY ADMITTING to themselves (or even ACKNOWLEDGING) that messing with DNA on ANY LEVEL is nothing short but asking for long-term trouble/dangerous mutations & side effects, as well as (rather they realize it or not) inciting the WRATH OF GOD!

Why? Because it messes with GOD’S NATURAL DNA DESIGN! (How would YOU like it for example if you self-created an elaborate piece of artwork, only to have that very artwork hop off the page and then rearrange itself in a form that YOU found questionable? And furthermore, what if THE WAY in which your created artwork chose to rearrange itself actually HARMED it, in the long run? What if it was the case that your artwork could ONLY be arranged ONE certain way and to have it arranged any OTHER way would be harmful to it, for it would make itself self-destruct?)

But then again, why should we all be surprised? The very FIRST time that “gene-editing” was mentioned in the bible was during the times of Noah in the Old Testament. There was GREAT EVIL upon the Earth in those days. The FALLEN angels had sex with human females and BORE CHILDREN by them! And the result of those “ungodly unions” was EVIL GIANTS (whom the bible calls the Nephilim!)

In fact, anywhere you turn, (rather in the bible OR in today’s world), you will begin to slowly notice that “gene-editing” is BAD and that nearly ALL mutations are “BAD!” Even most geneticists themselves know this, but yet, many of them won’t speak out over it DUE to the fear of the loss of their “careers!” (I’m SERIOUS ON THIS, FOLKS!)

[[[It is also why we know that the theory of “Evolution” is FALSE…..BECAUSE MUTATIONS (AS A WHOLE) ARE BAD! Now, don’t me wrong here, there’s a DIFFERENCE between a mutation and a “slight variation” over a generation of species. There’s ALWAYS going to be slight variations within a species over a set amount of time. However, that STILL doesn’t change the fact that mutations (as a whole) are BAD!]]

Now……..let us go back to the very NAME of the most recent “gene-editing technique”….CRISPR. Interesting name……..Especially considering that IN the lake of fire, those consigned to it will ETERNALLY BURN TO A “CRISP”.

So……the gene-editing technique’s NAME (Crispr) is somewhat of a BIBLICALLY INTERESTING NAME…….Was it named that way ON PURPOSE in order to MOCK God’s Almighty Wrath? Or was it named that for some other reason? We may never know, folks. Nevertheless, the name Crispr is VERY, VERY TELLING, biblically-speaking, like I said…….

Also as well: When people think MARK OF THE BEAST, they think of a physical mark or tattoo that’s placed on/in the right hand or forehead. But it goes much deeper than that, folks! For I surmise that the MARK OF THE BEAST also has to do with GENE-EDITING! For WHEN a person takes the Mark of the Beast (in my humble spiritual opinion), it also VERY likely means that a person’s physical AND spiritual DNA/genes WILL be edited/permanently changed! That’s SCARY, folks!

And besides, if “gene-editing” back in ancient biblical times created “ungodly hybrids”, what will the CURRENT rounds of “gene-editing” create in humans? I’m not totally sure I want to find out, folks!

This also gets me thinking about IVF, “surrogacy” and “test tube babies”. There’s thousands of “frozen embryos” sitting in labs all across the world. This (atleast to ME, anyways) seems very, VERY ungodly and NOT what Jesus Christ intended when he created humankind! Not to mention that for SOME embryos to live, OTHERS must be “discarded” and DIE!

So in a sense, it’s kind’ve like “playing God”, on the part of the IVF doctors. The “embryos” have no names in IVF and are “created and destroyed, at will”. And not only that, but it also “cheapens” the “natural procreation” in a “marital relationship”. Plus, don’t even get me started on how IVF doctors try to decide “which” embryos will be discarded…..either the ones that have so-called “defects” or the ones that are closest within reach of their “potassium chloride killing needle!”

But further yet, it has the potential to go even deeper! Alot of “secret testing” is done today, in the name of “science”, these days. So how do we really know that no form of “Crispr” is now being used on test tube babies, etc? Soliders during the time of the Vietnam War had no idea that Agent Orange was also being used on them in the name of “science”, for example!

But one thing’s for sure. If a couple cannot conceive, then doesn’t it seem very likely that it is NOT the Lord Jesus Christ’s will for that couple to have children – atleast at that current particular point in time or perhaps AT ALL? (Or perhaps the Lord is “secretly planning” to perform what’s called a “natural procreation miracle” in that couple’s life later at some point?) Therefore, why try to FORCE it? Is using IVF/surrogacy (rather the producer or recipient of) NOT a form of “playing God?” Just like “gene-editing” is? Think about it, folks!

Many “Christians” see nothing wrong with IVF, surrogacy and/or “gene-editing”. In fact, many even try to “justify” it. But in the end, Jesus Christ will be the judge. As I sit here pondering what Jesus’s will on these things would be, this is what comes to my mind:

I picture Jesus coming INTO an IVF, surrogacy or “gene-editing” laboratory/clinic. And I picture that his heart is VERY GRIEVED over a). all the IVF “embryos” that are “discarded” b). that IVF/surrogacy/neo-natal gene editing makes babies a “COMMODITY” c). that IVF and/or gene-editing is a form of NOT trusting him to heal and/or create life and that d). “gene-editing” being a personal slap in His Face, since it messes with HIS NATURAL (DNA) DESIGN!

I can then mentally picture Jesus sadly shaking his head in disbelief and asking those people the same types of questions that Elkanah asked his wife Hannah in 1 Samuel 1:8 “Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?”

In other words, I can picture Jesus being hurt EMOTIONALLY, when people don’t trust him enough for a miracle and/or when they’re not satisfied with what Jesus HAS ALREADY GIVEN THEM, so far in life……..be it a successful booming business, a great talent or hobby that most people don’t have, an education, a loving/wonderful spouse, etc.

[Note: Some mothers/IVF parents might even go so far as to say “Jesus” appeared to them in a dream and said that IVF was fine and dandy. But they seriously have to ask themselves just what type of “Jesus’ would actually APPROVE of such things? Would the Jesus Christ of ancient biblical times have EVER approved of IVF techniques (had they existed back then) where BABIES BECAME A $$$$ COMMODITY and where some babies got to live, while others had to DIE? Me thinks not!]

That’s essentially what “gene-editing” really IS……..it’s like personally saying to Jesus, “I’m sorry Jesus but I/WE can do better!” Just like IVF/surrogacy is like stubbornly saying, “I’m sorry Jesus but I’M/WE’RE gonna have children rather you like it or not!” In a small way, it’s like “becoming one’s own god!” Why? Because A) It thwarts God’s natural procreation design and B) it makes “babies” a COMMODITY! And not only that but it is considered (for a man, anyways) “spilling one’s seed” [OUTSIDE the natural womb of a wife!]

And that’s INTERESTING……..considering that in Genesis 38, verses 8-10, we read about a guy by the name of Onan. His brother had just died. And his brother & sister-in-law had had no children. And back in ancient Jewish biblical times, the dead husband’s brother was expected to marry his sister-in-law and have children by her, in order to carry on the family name. Only, the children that resulted would not be “his” but would instead be considered his “dead brother’s”, as the following passage indicates:

“And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also”.

Translation? Onan spilled his semen on the ground [OUTSIDE of his sister-in-law-turned-wife’s womb] since he didn’t want to have children by her, for his dead brother! (And the Lord was SO DISPLEASED with Onan that he KILLED HIM OUTRIGHT!) Why? Because Onan DISREGARDED the Lord’s will for NATURALLY-CREATED CHILDREN **FOR** HIS DEAD BROTHER’S PROGENY/FAMILY LINE OF INHERITANCE!

Therefore, in TODAY’S time, IVF/surrogacy is basically TODAY’S MEN doing the same thing. BIBLICALLY SPEAKING, they are “spilling their seed” like Onan once did, back in ancient biblical times. [Rather or not a child is eventually created using surrogacy/IVF is besides the point……The POINT is that “spilling one’s seed outside the womb” (for ANY reason) is apparently an abomination onto to the Lord!] And so BECAUSE of that, the Lord KILLED Onan…..so should IVF/surrogacy (i.e. unnatural pregnancy) REALLY be a thing that today’s men & women should be SPIRITUALLY trifling with?

Now……don’t get me wrong, here……The children of all “successful IVF/surrogacy births” can’t help how they were conceived & are considered “innocent” in all of this. Cause afterall, they can’t help how they were conceived. However, the parents of IVF children must think long & hard rather IVF/surrogacy had been the personal will of Jesus or not. Cause otherwise, if they go through their whole entire LIVES thinking it WAS the will of Jesus (when it actually might not’ve been?)

Truth is, we are ALL (including me) gonna be standing in front of the mighty Eternal Judgement Seat of Jesus Christ someday. And we’re ALL (including me) gonna be judged for every word, thought, deed & action. That’s WHY it’s ever-so-pertinent that we should all make absolutely 100% SURE that something is or was Jesus’s will for our lives, instead of just “assuming”…..

Because folks…..if we simply “assume” something was/is the Lord Jesus’s will for our lives (and it never really was but we had never actually taken the time to FULLY spiritually investigate if it was his will or not?) None of us would ever want to be on the WRONG side of Jesus’s will, correct? Therefore, ALWAYS ask & pray for confirmation, NEVER ASSUME! And that doesn’t JUST go for IVF/etc., that can go for ANYTHING (a college major, a MAJOR move across the country, acceptance of a certain job offer, starting a new business or not, etc.)

But when it COMES to IVF/etc., ask your SOUL the following question, in closing: “Would Jesus Christ EVER ‘OK’ “medical techniques and/or scientific *experiments* that ALTERED His NATURAL DNA design in ANY type of way and that made babies made in his own image a COMMODITY to be bought and sold?”

Therefore, I pray that if there’s anything holding you – dear readers – (or even myself) back from the Lord Jesus Christ and/or His Divine Will, that He will swiftly reveal it to you/me & also that you/I will repent of it – SWIFTLY! For tomorrow is never guaranteed!

P.S.: In the very near future, we will start to see more and more headlines such as the following that try to make “gene-editing/DNA modification” seem like a GOOD THING, so BEWARE, folks! Don’t let the “positive spin” on their articles fool you (EVEN WHEN IT COMES FROM A SEEMINGLY “CONSERVATIVE WEBSITE(S)“):

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you– [Matthew 5: 10-12]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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! 😉
