“For When They Shall Say Peace & Security”

1 Thessalonians 5: 3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape”.

So now there’s apparently been some so-called serious talks about “peace in the middle East” [peace, safety, security & prosperity]. INTERESTING……Considering that the bible tells us in the book of Revelation that it will be a “FALSE PEACE”.

Donald Trump is apparently set to announce the “final peace deal” within the next coming weeks. Are YOU saved in the name of Jesus, people? Because the bible says that ONLY the Antichrist of Revelation will be able to sign/bring about “the final peace deal” in the Middle East between the Jews and the Arabs!

And ALL whose names are NOT recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (remember that Jesus Christ is often called THE LAMB OF GOD) WILL be deceived by the Antichrist! The Antichrist WILL attempt to make all the Earth’s inhabitants (even the very “elect” – i.e. Christians) to think he’s the greatest thing that ever walked the Earth. On the outside, he will probably look like a prophet, dress like a prophet, act and speak like a prophet of God, but on the inside, he will be nothing but a MASS DECEIVER!

Not only will he sign a “final peace deal” between the Jews & the Arabs, but he will have everyone who doesn’t obey Jesus, fooled. He will make the Earth think he’s a “good guy”, a one world gov’t leader who “strives” and works for “peace”. But his master will be none other than Satan himself! He will soon require ALL of mankind (man, woman and child) to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead. This is known as THE MARK OF THE BEAST! He will claim that this “Mark” will be needed to buy or sell (a new “global currency”, if you will). But the Mark is REALLY about “worship!” The Antichrist wants to be WORSHIPED, IN PLACE OF CHRIST!

And Jesus gives us some VERY dire warnings that WHOMEVER TAKES THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILL BE DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! However, whomever REFUSES to take the Mark of the Beast? They will be KILLED, the bible says!

Basically in a nutshell, taking the Mark of the Beast (administered in the right hand or the forehead) is RENOUNCING JESUS. So, in other words, if Christians RENOUNCE JESUS in the New World Order/Beast System, they will then be allowed to buy and sell in the soon-coming Antichrist’s “global economy”. But those “Christians” will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE & BRIMSTONE! Why? Because WHEN and IF those “Christians” cave in and take the Mark of the Beast, their DNA is IMMEDIATELY PERMANENTLY CHANGED! Their DNA is then IMMEDIATELY programmed to WORSHIP THE BEAST!

Once a person gets the Mark of the Beast, THAT’S IT, IT’S OVER FOR THEM, ETERNALLY SPEAKING. There is NO MORE HOPE LEFT FOR THEM! It’s not a Mark that you can put on, then take back off, then put back on (as some FALSE, BLASPHEMOUS End-times Christian movies portray!) You get the Mark, it’s PERMANENT for ALL ETERNITY and there’s NO going back!

So why should anyone in their right mind get “The Mark of the Beast?” What’s 5 minutes worth of food compared to AN ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE? It’s much better to starve, be tortured/imprisoned/killed for one’s faith in the Lord Jesus Christ than to renounce Jesus, take the Mark and burn an eternity in the lake of fire, am I right?

The problem though is that many Christians are gonna “cave”. Many Christians are gonna be afraid. Many Christians are gonna think that Jesus will somehow forgive THEM for taking the Mark since “hey, they got families to feed”, right? But alas, THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS FOR THOSE WHO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST! NONE! NOT EVER! NOT FOR ETERNITY!

But “The Mark” is gonna “pretend” to come with many “Earthly benefits” to all who take it. Want to have eyesight if you’re blind? Want to regrow hair or lost limbs? Want to be smarter, faster, skinnier, taller, more athletic? That is what they will CLAIM you get as “additional benefits” to taking “The Mark”, in addition to the economic ones.

DON’T TAKE THE MARK, FOLKS! NOT NOW, NOT EVER! IT’S NOT WORTH AN ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! It’s much better to die for one’s faith in Jesus Christ than to live for the Devil’s LIES!

Satan was a liar from the VERY BEGINNING when he tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden! Satan LIES when he tells people that they won’t go to hell or the lake of fire for suicide! Satan LIES when he tells people who want to be rich and famous that “having money & fame’ll solve ALL their problems”. Satan LIES when he tells impressionable people (that oftentimes had a very bad experience or experiences in childhood) that “there’s nothing wrong with being gay”. Satan LIES when he says that homosexuality/gay marriage is NOT a sin! Satan LIES when he tries to claim that biological gender can change! Satan LIES when he tries to claim that Jesus doesn’t exist!

“We’re not living in the Last Days, things have continued since they have since the beginning”, claim many.

2 Peter 3:3-9 [New Testament, 2 Peter, chapter 3, verses 3-9] says:

“KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT THERE SHALL COME IN THE LAST DAYS SCOFFERS, WALKING AFTER THEIR **OWN LUSTS**, AND SAYING, ‘WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING? FOR SINCE THE FATHERS FELL ASLEEP, ALL THINGS CONTINUE AS THEY WERE FROM THE BEGINNING OF CREATION. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”

Translation? We’re living IN the last days of human history, news headlines AND bible prophecy PROVE it, rather one believes it or not! (One not believing in bible prophecy doesn’t make it any less real, so remember that, folks!)

Anyways, AFTER the Antichrist is UNVEILED to the world, (many believing at the MOMENT he signs the “final peace deal with the Jews & the Arabs, while others believe it’ll happen during what’s known as The Abomination of Desolation), Jesus Christ (the true, biblical, FULLY GLORIFIED FROM HEAVEN) Jesus Christ will return to the Earth a SECOND TIME! Only, THIS time, he will NOT be returning with peace and love towards non-believers but with WRATH & A 2-EDGED SWORD! In other words, Jesus Christ will return to the Earth with GREAT WRATH towards ALL those people who took the Mark of the Beast, etc.

However, Jesus Christ WILL “rapture” up in the clouds all his FAITHFUL followers! (Those who did NOT take the Mark of the Beast! Those who did NOT renounce him, when the time called for their faith to be ETERNALLY TESTED! Those who CHOSE to OBEY Jesus, NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER THE “WORLDLY PRICE!”) He will meet them IN THE CLOUDS OF THE AIR! And so will they be forevermore with the Lord!

So the choice should be clear. Choose Jesus & Eternal Salvation. REFUSE to take the Mark of the Beast and REFUSE to renounce your faith in Christ and LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN ETERNAL PARADISE!

OR…….Choose to RENOUNCE JESUS, make excuses NOT to believe in Jesus, take the Mark of the Beast, then BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ALL ETERNITY!

We’ve all got 2 choices and 2 choices, ONLY: it’s Jesus Christ or Satan. So what’s it gonna be, folks? Because remember that NOT choosing Jesus Christ IS choosing Satan, BY DEFAULT, rather you’re a full-fledged “Satanist” or not! Refusing Jesus for ANY reason will land you towards the road to taking the Mark of the Beast. And once you take the Mark of the Beast, that’s IT, it’s OVER for you. You will have LOST YOUR OWN SOUL! You will have lost EVERYTHING!

YOUR SOUL IS THE MOST PRECIOUS POSSESSION THAT YOU HAVE! IN FACT, THE **ONLY** POSSESSION THAT YOU HAVE THAT HAS ANY ETERNAL SIGNIFICANCE! BECAUSE *WHAT* YOU DECIDE TO DO WITH YOUR SOUL WILL AFFECT YOU **FOR ETERNITY**, RATHER, POSITIVELY OR NEGATIVELY! SO CHOOSE WISELY! AND DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU!

This is REAL, folks! This isn’t a GAME! This isn’t a MOVIE! This isn’t another episode of “Left Behind”. It’s time to get REAL with your faith in Jesus, folks! Time to get serious!

Christians: What if someone pulled a gun on you tomorrow and asked if you believed in Jesus? Would YOU be willing to die for your faith in Jesus and FOR Jesus, if faced with the threat of death? You had BETTER answer YES to that question! Cause things are starting to get REAL SERIOUS in today’s world! Satan and his demons aren’t kidding around anymore, folks! They mean some SERIOUS BUSINESS!

Every single Christian WILL be tested. NO CHRISTIAN shall escape “testing”.

On Jesus’s Day of Judgement (for we will ALL face his judgement someday), one question you do NOT want Jesus asking you is: “WHY DID YOU DENY ME?”

He created the universe with just the mere sound of his VOICE: “Let there be light”. He created the ENTIRE UNIVERSE and has the universe at his HELM! So think, folks. Is this REALLY the heavenly creator that you want to get on the wrong side of for all eternity? Me thinks not!

Some people worship Satan since they’re deceived into thinking that Satan has power. But what they do NOT realize is that what Satan has is LIMITED POWER! Power that was BORROWED from Almighty God! And Satan no doubt created MANY religions by which to deceive people BY! Islam, Hinduism, Orthodox Judaism, Mormonism, Catholicism, Shintoism, Paganism, *Satanism*. Wicca, you name it.

Also: there’s MILLIONS of Christian denominations. Certainly they can’t ALL be right, correct? Let me let you in on a secret. All “denominations” are false, man-made religions! Seriously. How can we know this? Simple: Genesis 2:2-3 states: “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made”. Translation? God rested on the 7th day (Saturday) and SANCTIFIED it.

The Roman Catholic Church comes along and CHANGES the day from Saturday to Sunday and even BRAGS about it to this day (do the research if ya don’t believe me!) And then, all Protestant churches followed suit. So what, then? Did Almighty God “make a mistake” when he created the 7th day (Saturday) to be holy? God doesn’t make mistakes, folks!

Another tidbit: Christmas and Easter. What do chocolate, painted eggs, rabbits, Santa Claus, reindeer and Christmas trees have to do with Jesus Christ again? Anyone? No? Those holidays are ALSO Catholic! Catholic and man-made! The Roman Catholic church decided to put a “Christian stamp” on Pagan holidays! What if someone gave you a birthday card that they first gave to someone else, then crossed out that person’s name and then put YOUR name on it? How would YOU feel? You’d feel that was pretty cheap, tacky and insincere, right? So does Jesus when we celebrate Paganized holidays that have absolutely nothing to do with him!

Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost. Now THOSE are biblically-sounding holidays, right? That’s because they ARE! Many pastors have written them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”. Well guess what, folks? Did you know that Jesus and his 12 disciples celebrated all 8 of the “Jewish feasts”, including the 2 “Minor Jewish Feasts?” And did you also know that the Lord Jesus Christ himself is FULFILLED in or soon to be fulfilled in those “Jewish feasts?”

Folks, they’re not just “Jewish feasts” but are BIBLICAL FEASTS! And they are the only true feasts that celebrate NOTHING BUT JESUS! There isn’t ANY room in the BIBLICAL feasts for chocolate candy, painted eggs, rabbits, reindeer, adorned tree idols or Santa Claus. For Jesus Christ will share his glory with NO OTHER, save for God the Heavenly Father!

Hopefully I’ve given you all something to think about….some spiritual food for thought.

Just think about this for awhile. If today’s “official churchianity” celebrates holidays that have nothing to do with Jesus, then why does the “Christian church” still continue to celebrate them?

And if God Almighty created in 6 days and rested on and BLESSED & SANCTIFIED THE 7TH DAY (Saturday), why do all the “churches” still celebrate on SUNDAY, a day the Lord God NEVER sanctified?

I could write pages and pages and pages of well-documented proof of these things but many would STILL cling to their “traditions”. But if their “traditions” don’t truly line up with God’s Written Word, perhaps it’s time to re-examine those “traditions” and where they TRULY come from! Why green trees at Christmas? WHY? Green trees have WHAT to do with Jesus again?

On the other hand, Jeremiah 10:1-4 states: “Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not”

Christmas trees are mentioned there but not in a positive light!!!!

But man, just think……..people must’ve HATED the prophet Jeremiah for pointing the types of things I’ve mentioned in this post, out. They must’ve accused Jeremiah of “splitting hairs”, “taking things too seriously”, “taking the Lord and righteousness too seriously”, “being judgmental”, etc. But that didn’t stop Jeremiah from serving the Lord God, did it? Neither should that stop US, the Berean Judeo-Christians who want to go back to AUTHENTIC, BIBLICAL JUDEO-CHRISTIANITY!

In fact, I’ll ever take this a step further. Roman Catholicism is based on the ancient Babylonian “mystery religion”. They just replaced Pagan gods/goddesses with “saints”, is all. Plus they replaced “Gaia – the divine feminine” or what Jews calls “The Shekinah Glory”) with “Mary worship”. And Protestantism, in retrospect, is really nothing more than “refined Catholicism”. And this type of “Paganized Christianity” is already a part of and HAS BEEN a part of “The Beast System” for a very, VERY long time! It’s just that many Christians didn’t even know it at first! (Heck, even I didn’t know it at first until I started doing some MAJOR BIBLICAL RESEARCH!)

There were TWO types of Jews back in biblical times. Those who ACCEPTED Jesus as Messiah (today known as “Messianic Jews/Judeo-Christians” and those who did NOT (today known as Orthodox/Phariseeic/Akenazi/Sephardic Jews).

Love me or hate me but I’ve done YEARS of biblical research on all this and I tell you all THE TRUTH. Truth that you’re not gonna hear much of anywhere else. I tell you all THE TRUTH because I love each and every single one of you and do NOT want ANY of you to end up in the eternal flames of torment someday!

The choice is up to YOU. But don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Subtle Mocking of Jesus/Bible (Sometimes Blatant) IN PLAIN SITE!

We’re all aware of cases where the mocking of Jesus/the bible is BLATANT and in your face (the TV show “Black Jesus”, the open mocking of Jesus/the bible at gay pride rallies, etc.) But what about the cases that are NOT so clear cut? And most of it’s SO subtle, you don’t even hardly notice it, at first. And if/when you DO notice it, you’re not totally sure what to think of it (if anything) at first. That’s how the Devil rolls, folks….. Lets examine some of those examples in closer detail…..   

1). When movies and TV shows are given BIBLICAL NAMES but have NOTHING to do with true, BIBLICAL CHARACTERS/THE BIBLE! (And in the last few years, I’ve been noticing more and more of this “trend” – these few listed are just the TIP of the iceberg! There’s many, many more! But for the sake of time & space, I’ll just limit it to these few so you get a good idea): 

  • ALPHA and OMEGA: Journey to Bear KINGDOM” (ONLY JESUS‘S ALPHA & OMEGA!)
  • ARMAGEDDON” (so-called “alien invasion” that has NOTHING to do with the bible!)
  • THE GOSPEL of US” (has absolutely NOTHING to do with the bible or biblical topics)
  • “RE-ALIVE” (A movie line in the movie blasphemously states: “LAZARUS, COME FORTH!”, not to mention that the name “Re-alive” might possibly be mocking the concept of “being spiritually born again, in CHRIST”)
  • “DAY OF RECKONING” (flies in opposition to Isaiah 2:12, which talks about the Lord’s ETERNAL JUDGMENT)
  • “LIFE” (pushes the “intelligent life on Mars” theory……..unbiblical?)

And folks, that’s just the movies that technically DON’T have any sort of “biblical bent” to them. What about the ones that DO? 

  • I AM GABRIEL: ALL THINGS MADE NEW” (ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! Only JESUS can “make all things news”, only JESUS became human flesh in the form of a newborn child and only JESUS is to be bowed down to, NOT ANGELS!)
  • 200 Degrees” (This movie MOCKS Old Testament Prophet Daniel’s THREE Friends that were placed in the Fiery Furnace of Nebuchadnezzar!) 
  • The Shack” (Jesus is NOT a “woman”, nor does Jesus preach a “watered-down gospel of Salvation! ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS!)
  • THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE” [Yes, it’s a “Christian comedy” but the NAME of the movie should’ve been called something else! Because not only does the NAME actually MOCK the resurrection of Christ but ALSO of Lazarus!]
  • Noah” (The BIBLICAL NOAH was NOT a “homicidal maniac”, etc.etc.) 
  • The Bible TV Series” (UNBIBLICAL! Why? Because in the TV series, Drops of Water Got Inside Noah’s Ark, etc. and we KNOW that not a SINGLE drop of water got inside the Ark due to God’s SPECIFIC instructions to Noah about how to paint the entire outside of the boat’s surface with a special tar/pitch SO THAT no water would get in it!)  

But what’s WORSE about this whole situation is people DEFENDING these movies (both so-called biblically-bent, yet UNBIBLICAL movies), as well as the ones that are NOT biblically-bent but take on biblical-sounding names/titles:

https://relevantmagazine.com/culture/film/why-are-so-many-christians-afraid-hollywood-bible-movies

And again, think about the magazine name ITSELF: “Relevant”. That’s exactly what alot of these movies and TV shows are attempting to do: stay “relevant”. However, the word “relevant” is the EXACT OPPOSITE of how Jesus would have us live!

In today’s world, TRUE, BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY is seen as IRRELEVANT by today’s wider, secular culture! And so when we Christians/Messianic Jews (as a whole) try to make biblical Christianity stay “Relevant”, we in turn WATER DOWN THE GOSPEL, WHICH THEN MAKES IT SEEM POWERLESS AND “IRRELEVANT” TO THOSE WHO ARE *UNSAVED*…..THUS the VERY REASON that MAKES the gospel seem “truly irrelevant” to today’s Unsaved Culture, at large! 

2). It doesn’t JUST extend to movies and TV shows. It goes much, much deeper than that. It can ALSO include music and advertising. Lets us examine a couple of examples:

Yeezus blaphemy

Kanye West’s album cover for Yeezus

SPIRIT IN THE SKY, JESUS MOCKING

“I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”

JOEL OSTEEN

Hint: This book is NOT talking about the “Ancient of Days” when it uses the biblical words “I AM”

In the Kanye West example up above, it’s VERY, very blatant mocking of the bible (atleast in MY opinion). But in the 2nd-4th illustrated examples (as well as the non-biblical movies with biblical names), it’s far more subtle.

I even found MYSELF asking the questions on illustration #2: “Are they knowingly mocking David & Goliath OPENLY? Are they trying to USE the example of David & Goliath for their own financial gain? Are they trying to gain more “seemingly Christian” clients, figuring the Christian clients would be easier to rip off? Or are they “subtle Christians” who are using their advertising to try to get people INTERESTED in the stories of the bible?” 

Though it might possibly be the 4th scenario, I’m willing to bet it’s either scenario 1, 2 or 3 (especially in today’s fallen world). My VERY first question was, “Is that MOCKING?” I wasn’t totally sure and I admit that to my shame! And the SAME types of questions popped into my mind when I very first saw the BIBLICAL NAMES/TITLES of movies that had NOTHING to do with the bible/biblical characters! I didn’t have my “biblical thinking cap” on at first……I wasn’t thinking straight.

Illustrations 3 and 4 are ALSO confusing. Illustration 3 makes it seem like: “oh, that’s okay, he’s just glorifying God the Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ!” But when one examines the LYRICS to the song: “I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”, it becomes all the more apparent that this is NOT a true Jesus-glorifying song but rather a song that seems to come with a “different gospel”. 

Illustration 4 makes it “seem” at first like Mr. Osteen is glorifying the GREAT “I AM THAT I AM”. But instead, it’s more of a NEW AGE book where he tells his readers the following: 

osteen quote

But what the Holy Spirit communicated to me the other day has now become GLARINGLY CLEAR: 

“ALL FORM OF *MOCKING* IS MOCKING……….EVEN WHEN AND *ESPECIALLY* WHEN IT’S *SUBTLE!* AND FURTHERMORE AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY SO…….ANY FORM OF MOCKING, SPECIFICALLY SUBTLE MOCKING IS NOTHING SHORT OF *HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!*” 

Whoa! Those words just blew me away! Are those fateful words hinting that Jesus is EVEN MORE angry at *subtle mocking* than he is BLATANT MOCKING? One can only guess. But the message is CLEAR: Whenever we come across subtle (or even blatant, for that matter) mocking, we can know for 100% sure that YES, it IS mocking and that YES, Satan is trying VERY, VERY HARD to use that subtle mocking against us

On one of the above blasphemous movies (actually on nearly ALL of them), nearly ALL the user reviews are POSITIVE and I’ve hardly seen ANY negative user reviews, calling out the movie and movie producers for making a BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! That’s scary! Because if people so-called find “hope” in a “false gospel”, then their spiritual hope is also a false hope, INDEED!

So just remember: if you see, hear or come across something and you’re subtly asking yourselves: “is THAT mocking?” (of Jesus/the bible), then it most certainly likely IS! 

“Jesus, I pray that all souls who read this will be enlightened by this and will now better recognize subtle mocking and will IMMEDIATELY rebuke that subtle mocking (within their minds, hearts & spirits) in your great, heavenly name! I also pray that you will stir their hearts, minds, bodies and spirits towards YOU, O Lord, and that you will give them a RENEWED heart & strength & BOLDNESS in you, so that they will NOT be afraid to SPEAK OUT against such *subtle mocking*, even if they are the VERY FIRST person to speak out against the subtle mocking they see on those movies/tv shows review sites! And furthermore, whenever they DO speak out against the subtle mocking, use THEIR words to help enlighten and open up the spiritual eyes of others. Amen”. 

Why ALL Statues are IDOLS (Biblically-Speaking)

Folks, there’s most recently been a controversy in which extreme leftists have wanted to TEAR DOWN all CONFEDERATE statues, based on RACE, ALONE! 

And while many Christians out there in the South are PROTESTING taking down the statues, there’s a MUCH BIGGER picture here at play, folks and that’s THIS:

ALL “STATUES” ARE **IDOLS!** Yes, you heard me. **IDOLS**. How we know this? Let us go no further than the 2nd commandment in the bible, which states the following:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” – [Exodus 20: 4-5]

Okay, so let us define what a “graven image” is, biblically-speaking. It is simply an “image made by the hands of man”. And that “image” (in order to be classified as an “idol”, biblically speaking) must represent a thing or a person that is under the Earth, on the Earth or above the Earth.

Therefore, ALL STATUES comply with all the categories of an IDOL (biblically-speaking):

  1. It’s an “image” or “representation” made with mans’ hands
  2. It’s an “image” or “representation” of a person/thing that’s under/on/above the Earth
  3. Mankind often “marvels” over such “statues” and “takes picture of it” or with themselves BY it, which qualifies as a form of “worship”, according to the bible. Because remember: to “marvel” over something is to “worship it”, biblically-speaking

Therefore, I think ALL STATUES should come down. Not so much because of the race or history thing, but because of the IDOL THING! Think about how many Catholics, for instance, BOW DOWN to “statues” of “saints” (DEMONS) or The “Pope” or what have ya. Many people say that statues of Catholic saints are IDOLS, yet statues of historical figures are NOT.

But HOW is that, folks? How is a man-made STATUE of an historical figure ANY DIFFERENT than all the statues of Catholic saints? Don’t people (in a sense) bow down to and WORSHIP statues of historical figures by TAKING PICTURES OF IT or taking pictures of themselves RIGHT BY IT? Think about it, folks! 

I’m honestly surprised that more Christians out there haven’t picked up on this and started more of a “fuss” about this. When the VERY FIRST “statues” (i.e. IDOLS) were put up of historical figures, how much Christians out there weren’t PROTESTING THEM, THEN? Answer: Because they were SPIRITUALLY BLIND! 

Satan had it SO EASY on this, folks! One little statue HERE, one little statue THERE and many Christians were NONE THE WISER! How sad, folks! How PITIFUL! What a SPIRITUAL SHAME that more Christians have not been able to open up their eyes and SEE THIS SIMPLE FACT!

Many Christians today even want to CLING to those statues as “vestiges of human history”. And while it’s true that human history should never be forgotten (lest it be repeated, once again), I just don’t think that clinging to STATUE IDOLS is the way to go about it, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING! 

Most of us wouldn’t want or have idols in our HOMES! So why should we want any STATUE IDOLS in the PUBLIC SQUARE? Think about it, folks! A 10 commandments monument is ONE thing! A STATUE (i.e. GRAVEN IMAGE IDOL) of an historical figure is another thing, altogether! 

And folks, it’s NOT JUST statues of historical figures that are IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES (the statue of liberty’s DEFINITELY AN IDOL – like it or not), but it can also be things like statues of cats, dogs, fish, ANYTHING. It doesn’t necessarily have to BE a statue of a “Buddha” or the like to BE an “idol”, BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING. Do you read me on this, folks?????

Anyways, it just breaks my heart and makes me so, so sad that many Christians are BLIND as to exactly WHAT an idol is (it’s heck alot more than just a Buddha or a wax museum figurine of somebody famous). When are people gonna open up their eyes and see this fact? 

I pray that if you’re a Christian/Messianic Jew who doesn’t yet see the BIBLICAL TRUTH about statues, that you will, SOON. I also pray that ALL statues will start to come down, soon. Again, not for the LIBERAL REASONS stated but for BIBLICAL REASONS! Cause then, and only then might almighty God have just a little more “patience” with this nation if we start tearing down statues (IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES) for all the RIGHT reasons (BIBLICAL REASONS) instead of all the WRONG reasons!

Folks, we (America) are a nation of IDOL WORSHIPERS (statues at every which corner/public square), MURDERERS (abortion, etc.), WHOREMONGERS (homosexuality/transgenderism/pre or extra marital sex), BLASPHEMERS and THIEVES. But even if we (as a nation) were to get rid of just ONE of those things (for all the RIGHT biblical reasons), the Lord would be partially pleased. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE? 

But yet, the bible says that won’t happen anytime soon. America will have to FALL TO ITS KNEES before many of its own citizens will repent. And EVEN THEN, many will have a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART towards Jesus and his commands in the bible!

In fact, I even now wonder if Bonnie Rait’s song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was some sort of pre-prophetic attempt to “make fun” of the fact that MANY, MANY PEOPLE in the Last Days will HAVE a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART TOWARDS JESUS? Just a thought, folks…..

Remember how all the ancient Greeks and Romans had STATUES at every corner and all over their “public squares?” Today’s times aren’t so different, now, are they? True, people might not PHYSICALLY bow down and “worship” the statues of historical figures as in, Oh President Lincoln, I worship thee GREATLY, but that’s because people do so IN THEIR HEARTS! Like I said, they take PICTURES of the “statues” (graven images) or take pictures of THEMSELVES by the “statues”…..

And you don’t think Jesus Christ considers that a form of “worship”, folks? Trust me, he considers it WORSHIP…….And that applies EVEN TO STATUES OF HIMSELF…….He doesn’t even want us “worshiping” or “marveling” over statues of HIM…….Therefore, do you REALLY think he’d want any of us “worshiping” or “marveling” over a statue of historical figures or the like? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

[NOTE:  hope this post has both enlightened and informed you about THE TRUTH about all “STATUES”. May you be deceived by Satan and his demons NO LONGER! Amen.] 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let us look at a few examples, here:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

– Romans 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rise of the “Selfie” & “Self-Worship”

Back in the 90’s, if you took a photographic “selfie” of any sort, it generally meant you “had no friends”. But here, in the year 2017, the concept of the “selfie” has turned into a whole other meaning, completely. In today’s society & culture, if you DON’T take a “selfie”, it socially means that you have no friends or that you’re “not cool”.

But what exactly is “the core” of a “selfie”? Answer: SELF-WORSHIP/WORSHIP OF SELF! I think alot of people are forgetting that. Today’s culture is all about me, me, me…..How will this or that make ME look? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What’s in it for ME? How does this relationship/job/friendship/etc. benefit ME?

Not to sound too brash here but today’s people are just IN LOVE WITH THEMSELVES! You go to someone’s Facebook page, for instance, and they have a bazillion photos of themselves from every which angle. And just think: They have to personally download/upload EACH and every single one. Plus some of the photos are even duplicates!

Now, don’t get me wrong here……I’m not saying that EVERY single person on Facebook is self-absorbed or that Facebook is the Devil or anything like THAT….But, over time, Facebook has evolved from its very humble beginnings to slowly becoming a more and more “self-absorbed media platform/narcissist’s dream”, as time goes on.  

And then you have Youtube. People that both “worship” Youtube (as though it’s some sort of “god”, I kid you not) and people that “utilize” Youtube to BE worshiped by others. Just think of all those videos from what I call “the million viewers club”. If they get over a million views on their video, then they’re eligible to be a Youtube partner and get payed a cut from “each” and every view of their videos (from how I understand it?) Basically, Youtube has become a “fame gone mad” type thing.

And these people that make millions of Youtube videos each year and make money off them………am I judging them? No. Not at all. But I DO kind’ve feel sorry for them in a small sense. Because when they say things like, “I’d like to think my subscribers”, or do crazy/dangerous things because their “subscribers asked them to”, etc., it’s like they’re turning to PEOPLE/SUBS for fulfillment, instead of to something much bigger and greater than them (i.e. Jesus Christ/Salvation) for fulfillment. And it just breaks my heart! They have NO IDEA of what they’re missing out on! 

But again, it’s really no different than the feeling that many famous celebrities feel when people “worship them”. Over time, they start to feel invisible and start worshiping THEMSELVES! And personally, Satan couldn’t be more the happier when that happens for it means just one more for the “eternal burn pile”, someday.

Think of Satan like the bad kid that acts up in class. He KNOWS he’s going to get in trouble with the teacher for “being bad” and be punished “real bad” afterwards but he wants to try to corrupt as many of the “good kids” in the class that he possibly can so that THEY get punished, too. His stealthy “warfare tactics” know no bounds! 

Self-worship is something that Satan was originally guilty of, up in heaven, during “The Fall”. So now, Satan wants humans to be like HIM: a self-deluded, self-worshiping creature! A creature who’s ANGRY with God/Jesus Christ, ANGRY with the bible & its commandments/decrees and ANGRY with everything that’s righteous & holy!

He’s likely full of “silent fear”. I think deep within the depths of his being, he KNOWS he can never be equal to God/Jesus Christ and he fears losing! But he likely masks that fear with DENIAL & DEFIANCE! For, he likely reasons, if he can mask his fear with denial & defiance, perhaps no-one (especially humans) will ever know how secretly “running scared” he is, underneath it all.

But going back to the concept of what I’ll call “selfie worship/self-worship” among the human race. Narcissism/Vanity & Pride are two of Satan’s top traits and now he’s trying to make as many human beings like this as possible! Why? To take them away from Almighty God/Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Because believe it or not folks, OUR suffering (physical, emotional & spiritual) pleases Satan! In fact, he’s quite HAPPY knowing that several humans will be thrown into the lake of fire at God’s Judgement, someday! He’s HAPPY knowing that several people are being snatched from Jesus Christ on a daily basis! He’s nothing short of evil/evil-minded!

Not to mention that people are SO hung up on taking “the perfect selfie” photograph these days, that several people have even DIED or gotten SERIOUSLY injured from it! This is NO laughing matter, folks! This is very, very serious!  

http://list25.com/25-people-who-died-while-trying-to-take-a-selfie/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_selfie-related_injuries_and_deaths

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: Folks, we’re all being preconditioned on a VERY LARGE MASS SCALE to think/do the following:

  1. Worship Self/Be “Selfie-Obsessed”
  2. Worship Other Humans (i.e. Celebrities, Youtube “stars”, etc.)
  3. Accept the LGBT Agenda
  4. Accept the Trans Agenda
  5. Accept the G.S.A. Agenda
  6. Accept the New World Order SYSTEM
  7. Accept Abortion
  8. Accept “Gay Marriage/Gay Adoption/Gay Families”
  9. Accept Anti-Bible Rhetoric & Sentiments 
  10. Accept Mockery of Jesus & Christians
  11. Accept Drugs/Drug Use As “Socially Acceptable”
  12. Accept Any and ALL Liberal/Social Justice Causes
  13. ETC.

In fact, sadly, many of today’s problems have to do with “Social Justice Causes”. And while many “Social Justice Causes” might “seem” good on the surface, most of them are about as evil as can be! They MOCK Christ, they MOCK the bible, they MOCK the traditional family, they MOCK Christianity, plus they align PERFECTLY with Satan’s Will, NOT God’s Will!

For example: Abortion. “Social Justice Warriors” make it “seem” as though the “fight for abortion” is the “fight for women’s rights”. But lets peel back the layers a bit. What DO abortion procedures actually DO? Essentially, they make a pregnant woman an “unpregnant woman” (or rather, the mother of a “dead baby”). And how do they do that? They either stop the babies heart and/or RIP the baby out of the womb with forceps, LIMB BY LIMB! 

And just like selfies, abortion can even be likened to a FORM of “self-worship” (worship of oneself over one’s baby). Now tell me…..Why should women have the right to MURDER their babies? Especially considering that THEY THEMSELVES weren’t aborted in the womb and received the right to life! A baby’s heartbeat starts beating at just 21 DAYS after conception! 3 weeks, folks! 3 weeks! Plus research has shown that babies as young as 8 weeks (and probably even less) can FEEL PAIN! 

And yet, some of these “Social Justice Warriors” are trying to advocate for abortion at ANY point during pregnancy, even up until birth! THAT’S SPIRITUALLY DISGUSTING, FOLKS! What a “murderous/narcissistic spirit” we have roaming here in America, today! 

When a person decides who lives and who dies (think Euthanasia, for instance), that could be considered “playing god”. So how is abortion any different? If a woman’s right to “convenience” trumps a baby’s right to live, the woman (in a direct sense) is “playing god” (rather she realizes it or not). She’s worshiping her own body/reproductive system, rather than the one True God [Jesus Christ Almighty] who CREATED her reproductive system for marriage/children purposes! 

Selfies and vacation pics (in and of themselves) aren’t inherently evil, it’s oftentimes the intent behind posting them on social media that makes them evil. If I, for example, have a friend take a picture of me in front of a building in Germany and me and that friend/immediate family members are the only ones that see it, that’s one thing. But if I’m posting it on social media to “brag” about and “showcase” my so-called Germany vacation to the world wide web, that’d be quite another thing, altogether.

Now, if I were to somehow give glory to Jesus Christ FOR the so-called Germany vacation and showcased THAT thankfulness on social media under the picture captions or something, that would be ONE thing. But lets face it. Most people who post HUNDREDS of images on social media of, for example, their vacation to France, want other people to see “how great their life is”. Am I wrong, here? 

Which reminds me of some of the Youtube vloggers. Some of them are showcasing their entire lives on Youtube (everything from the first date to the kitchen sink and everything in between). And true, they might possibly be making money from those videos (which might be why they do it in the first place) but what many psychologists are saying these days is that these people are unfulfilled in their normal day-to-day lives. So for them, Youtube/social media is like an alternate universe where they can be something, be “someone”.

But folks, that’s what the sad thing is, really. Today’s “secular culture” (especially among young people) is UNFULFILLING. Today’s young people keep searching for that someone or something that will make them feel complete:

  1. “If I get a million subscribers on Youtube, I’ll feel complete”
  2. “If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage, I’ll feel complete”
  3. “If I meet that special someone, I’ll feel complete”
  4. “If I get that raise or become famous, I’ll feel complete”
  5. “If I get that movie or TV part, I’ll feel complete”
  6. “If I get so many likes on my Facebook post/status, I’ll feel complete”
  7. “If I get married and have 1-3 kids, I’ll feel complete”
  8. ETC. 

But THEN what happens, folks? What happens when the thing happens? They’re STILL not “complete”. There’s a big gap of RESTLESSNESS in their lives and that gap can ONLY be filled/fulfilled by Jesus Christ Almighty! It sounds cliché but it’s true! 

Selfies and worship of self are not just about “vanity”, “pride” and “fitting in”. They’re about “popularity”. They’re about finding fulfillment IN people/social status, rather than in Jesus Christ. Just like Social Justices causes are about finding fulfillment in everything BUT Jesus Christ. 

The next time you or a loved one goes to take a “selfie” or do a Youtube video or post your “vacation pics” on Facebook, ask yourself the following three questions:

1). WHY am I doing this? What is my PRIME motivation?

2). AM I doing this to be “popular”, “seem cool”, or to “get attention?” 

3). Does what I’m doing bring glory to Jesus Christ at all? If not, then why am I still doing it?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are goodTraitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GodHaving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – [2 Timothy 3: 1-5]
