The Workplace Is A Spiritual Battlefield!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

Beware: The “Disguised” Devil in Plain Site!

Many Catholics (and even non-Catholics alike) just LOVE Pope Francis and think he’s “the greatest thing since sliced bread”. But what MANY people don’t realize (specifically, many Christians, Jews and Catholics themselves), is that MANY, MANY things he says and does actually goes AGAINST the bible and AGAINST Jesus Christ! Don’t believe me? Lets examine many of the PERSONAL QUOTES/BELIEFS of Pope Francis (Papa Francesco):

  • “‘Reading Genesis we imagine that God is ‘a wizard with a magic wand’ capable of doing all things, he said. ‘But it is not so. He created life and let each creature develop according to the natural laws [Evolution] which he had given each one.’”

  • [The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism – the belief that God created the world in six days – and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world]
  • “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
  • “Since many of you do not belong to the Catholic Church and others are non-believers, from the bottom of my heart I give this silent blessing to each and every one of you, respecting the conscience of each one of you but knowing that each one of you is a child of God.”
  • “From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”
  • “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.” [Note: I’m pretty sure he’s talking about those actually LIVING the lifestyle, not those “celebate” ones who struggle with same-sex attraction but still desperately want a spiritual relationship with Christ!] 
  • “A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”
  • “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
  • “Christians who avoid taking risks out of concern for the Ten Commandments as suffering from “cowardliness,” warning that such people become “paralyzed” and unable to “go forward
  • PLUS MANY, MORE MORE!!!!!!!! 

Now tell me, people…….If the Roman Catholic POPE (in this particular case, Francis) believes and practices things that go AGAINST the bible, then what does that say about the Roman Catholic Church’s theology/practices, in and of ITSELF? Again, lets examine the evidence…..lets examine what the Roman Catholic Church (and its theology/beliefs/practices) has to say about ITSELF:

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify“

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church“

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority“.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope”

Louis Gaston Segur, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of To-Day (London: Thomas Richardson and Son, 1874): 213: “Thus the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is a homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) Church”.

The Catholic Mirror (September 23, 1893): ”The Catholic Church, for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday…The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who can find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation, “Seventh-day Adventists.”

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): “The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: “The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God

But people, the point I want to make is THIS:

  1. The Roman Catholic Church (in and of itself – outside of its Fight for Pro-Life) is UNBIBLICAL
  2. Pope Francis’s “liberal theology” is UNBIBLICAL
  3. The Roman Catholic Church MIXES TRUTH WITH LIES (i.e. The Fight For Pro-Life Vs. “Bowing Down to Idols & Graven Images’, etc.)
  4. The Pope AGREES with the UNBIBLICAL “religions” of “climate change”, “ecumenicalism”, “evolution”, etc.
  5. The Pope will actually (unfortunately) HELP bring about the *reign* of the ANTICHRIST! 
  6. The Pope (& the Roman Catholic Church) are STILL persecuting the TRUE SAINTS of God (those who not only BELIEVE in the bible from Genesis to Revelation + 1611 KJV Apocrypha, but those who TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST *ALONE* AND THAT ADHERE TO the bible’s contents and warnings!)
  7. Pope Francis (who unfortunately himself is deceived, already) is/has been/will continue to SPIRITUALLY DECEIVE MANY
  8. There’s VERY good biblical evidence that the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. The Vatican) is the either the Whore and/or Beast System of Revelation! 

But remember: The Devil’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY (lives, hearts, bodies, AND souls!) He doesn’t come with a hellish face, horns and a pitchfork, people! He comes IN DISGUISE! And what better disguise than RIGHT *INSIDE* THE CHURCH, RIGHT INSIDE THE *VATICAN ITSELF?* Think about it, folks!

When the Pope VERY FIRST “came into office”, sort’ve speak, he seemed very mild, likeable and down to Earth. All the Catholics everywhere (and even Christian themselves) seemed to love him! (But in the back of many liberal’s minds, they were hoping to, unfortunately, “use the Pope” for THEIR left-wing philosophy/causes!) And as time has wore on over the years, he’s actually BECOME more and more BOLD and UNBIBLICAL in his “stances” on issues such as “evolution”, “abortion”, “adultery”, etc. (Quite simply put, he’s been deceived by Satan and those on the left!) 

Now…….do I think the Pope is THE ANTICHRIST talked about in Revelation? Not exactly. Although I DO think there’s a very good biblical possibility that he could be THE FALSE PROPHET talked about in the book of Revelation! Because the bible says that’s EXACTLY what the FALSE PROPHET will do……LIE TO PEOPLE and make them THINK that what he’s saying/doing and thinking is BIBLICAL, when in actuality, it’s really NOT!

But the bible HINTS (in the book of Revelation in the New Testament) that both THE BEAST (Antichrist/Antichrist System) AND THE FALSE PROPHET will have SUCH power of persuasion that MANY UPON MANY will be DECEIVED! (ETERNALLY DECEIVED!)

In fact, just LOOK how many people today are ALREADY DECEIVED by “liberalism” into thinking that “homosexuality/sodomy/gay marriage/transgenderism”, “abortion”, “adultery”, “cohabiting and/or sex outside of or before marriage” is OK….When just a decade or so ago, it would’ve been UNTHINKABLE in most Christian people’s minds!

But in fact, a quote from George Orwell really gets me every time and that’s THIS: The people will believe what the media TELLS them they believe!

And The Pope & The Vatican are ALL OVER THE MEDIA! In fact, just like with Barack Obama, the media is having “quite the lovefest” with Pope Francis & The Vatican. I’m almost just as quick to blithely ask the liberal liberal media: “So….when’s *the WEDDING?*” (between they and the Pope/Vatican…..)

No, but in ALL seriousness…..one (rather liberal or not) can NOT deny the fact that the media is just DROOLING (as a collective whole) over Pope Francis & The Vatican! Seems like every other day I’m reading an article about Pope Francis this, or Vatican that, etc. Not to mention that I’ve ALSO taken notice of something: why are all the U.S. EVANGELICAL LEADERS (Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, etc.) and WORLD LEADERS meeting with the Pope? Why, INDEED? It kind’ve makes a person wonder, doesn’t it?

But then again, it should really come as NO SURPRISE since The Pope/The Vatican will have an INTEGRAL PART in the soon coming ONE WORLD ORDER! The Jesuit Vatican is where they will likely set up “headquarters” for the One World Gov’t, One World Religion and One World Economy…..or at the very least, the One World Religion part of it. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! The Jesuits (as a whole) are EVIL! They (as a whole) are Satan’s “henchmen” in disguise!

People of the world (as a whole — SPECIFICALLY Jews *and* Christians) have been SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP! People in today’s world (as a whole) are MUCH too worried about the latest music, movies or videogames than they are about world news events and how it ties in to bible prophecy! This stuff was prophesied in the bible over THOUSANDS of years ago (INCLUDING the fact that at the last days, there would be many scoffers and mockers) and yet, most people of today don’t even know that and/or don’t even care! SAD!

But I WILL say this: IF you are a member of the Roman Catholic and/or Catholic Church, don’t just walk away from it, RUN! RUN FOR YOUR DEAR SOUL’S LIFE, WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME! Because believe me, ON Jesus Christ’s Day of Judgement (The TRUE/BIBLICAL/”JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST and NOT the false, Paganized one taught in churches today)……WHEN you stand before Him, The Almighty God, maker of the heavens and the Earth……..

The very LAST thing you’d EVER want THE BIBLICAL “JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST asking YOU, The “Catholic”, is something along the lines of why you never read the bible (front to back) for yourself, to see rather or not the “Catholic churches’s teachings” are/were so and also why you (as a “practicing Catholic”) repeatedly broke the 2nd and 4th commandments (which are NOT to bow down to any idols or graven images and to remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy — respectively), amongst other things. 

Now……we know from Genesis that the TRUE, BIBLICAL SABBATH is the 7th day of the week, which is SATURDAY!!!!! Because remember……The Lord created the Earth and the heavens in 6 days and RESTED ON AND SANCTIFIED THE 7TH DAY (SATURDAY) AS A “DAY OF REST”. And so for MORTAL MAN to “change the Sabbath” and claim that God HIMSELF changed it is (either knowingly or unknowingly) committing BLASPHEMY against Almighty God! 

But folks: Rather you’re an “ex-Catholic” that’s ALREADY gotten out of the Catholic Church or you’re a Christian/Jew that KNOWS the Roman Catholic Church is NOT biblical, we need to PRAY for ALL Catholics….(INCLUDING Pope Francis and all Vatican officials)……We need to pray that the Lord Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ) will soon open up their hearts, souls and minds to HIS gospel and not the FALSE, Paganized gospel taught in the churches today! Because remember that you yourself were once an “uninformed” and “restless/unsaved” soul, correct? What if no-one had ever taken the time, prayers or efforts to enlighten YOU? How would YOU feel? 

Hint: DON’T READ THE NEWER BIBLE TRANSLATIONS (NKJV, NIV, NSRV) FOR THEY HAVE BEEN PERVERTED! ONLY READ THE 1611 KJV + APOCRYPHA as the Lord Jesus Christ ADMONISHES (that means SEVERELY JUDGES) anyone who ADDS/REMOVES words from the bible (as Revelation 22:18-19 states!)
