The “Black Hebrew Movement”: Satan’s Deception

There’s a very dangerous movement going on around today that I will dub “The Black Hebrew Movement”. Basically, the “theology” of this movement believes that ALL Black and Native American people are the TRUE Israelites and that all OTHER people (especially “white people”), are “cursed” and can not be “redeemed” at all by God. But we KNOW from the bible that these claims are NOT TRUE! Let us examine……

Galatians 3:28 in the New Testament CLEARLY STATES the following: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus”. 

Translation? Jesus Christ/Yeshua is NOT a “respecter of races”. Race MATTERS NOT to Jesus/Yeshua. However, what DOES matter to him, according to the bible, is what’s inside the HEART of a person:

1 John 3: 15 states: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” – Matthew 5:27-28

Translation? Whoever HATES someone (for ANY REASON) has committed murder of that person in their HEART and whomever looks after a woman to lust after her has ALSO committed sin IN THEIR HEART. Jesus HIMSELF has said so. That settles it. 

But…..biblical passages aside, let us think about this RATIONALLY……If ONLY Black/Native American people could be saved by Jesus (according to the “Black Hebrews”), why did Jesus die on the cross for ALL of mankind? And if RACE were the ONLY factor that could get a person “saved” in the name of Jesus, why does Galatians say that we (believers in Jesus) are ALL ONE in the name of Jesus?

They claim the bible has been “diluted”. But ya know what, folks? EVERY false religion and false religious “fringe group” out there makes that claim! Because that’s the only way they can get “followers”. But ya know what? In CREATING these false religions and false fringe groups, they are essentially CALLING JESUS CHRIST A LIAR! I would sure hate to be THEM on Jesus’s Day of Judgement!!!!!!!!

He’ll ask them directly to their faces why they believed the way they did:

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” –Matthew 12:36

And just WHAT will that person SAY in response? “The white man is the devil?” 

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

In other words, they think the “white man” is the devil but ON the Day of Judgement, they will discover that it was their OWN THINKING that CAME FROM the Devil HIMSELF! And by then, it will be too late for them, for THEY will BECOME the “cursed ones” sent to the Rev. 20:15 lake of fire. But……those of them that are wise enough to REPENT long before then, only THEY will be spared from the lake of fire/God’s Wrath. 

The Black Hebrew Movement? They have ALL been deceived by Satan and his demons. And most of them don’t even know it or realize it. Deception is POWERFUL. If a person is not TRULY grounded in the Word of God, they are EASILY deceived. Now…….to be fair……..have Black men been traditionally enslaved and taken advantage of by white people in the past? Yes, they have. And do they want some sort of “validation”? Sure. And I get that, to a certain degree, I really do. But that’s NO REASON to take the bible, twist it around to suit their own personal/political agenda, and then use that “agenda” to “hate the white man”. You can’t defeat hate WITH hate, it doesn’t work that way, and even Jesus himself said so!

Therefore, it would be MY prayer that these Black Hebrew Movement folks will WAKE UP before it’s too late and also that they’ll SOON realize that Jesus Christ is NOT a “respecter of race/persons”. For ANY soul (regardless of color) that loves and obeys Yeshua/Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul and mind qualifies to dwell with Christ FOR ETERNITY, someday.  

Even the book of Revelation ITSELF [Rev. 7: 9-17] states that people of MANY RACES **will** be dwelling with Christ for ETERNITY, someday:

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb’. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped God, Saying, ‘Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen’. 

And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes“.

 

 

Why Christians Have Lost the “Culture War”, Thus Far………

As the world and society gets more sinful BY THE DAY, many Christians out there are somewhat shocked & astounded as to WHY that is so. Quite frankly, it’s DUE to a) bible prophecy of the End of Days and b) biblical-roots Christians NOT taking a true stand for their faith/the bible and just letting the LEFT walk ALL OVER THEM! In fact, I can think of 22 different cases right off the bat where Christians (as a whole) gave the personal & political response of SILENCE (as a whole), as each one of these cases only FURTHER damaged mainstream conservative Christian culture.

1). 1973 Roe Vs. Wade : Abortion (Silence).

2). Prayer being taken out of schools (Silence).

3). Rise of LGBT Agenda (Silence).

4). Rise of Islam (Silence).

5). Attack on the American flag (which was founded on Christian values/principles) – Silence.

6). Rise of Counterfeit Christianity (Silence).

7). Rise of Christians who support LGBT Rights (Silence).

8). Christian business sued by LGBT Activists (Silence).

9). Attack on Christianity by our OWN Gov’t (Silence).

10). Ecumenicalism in the Churches (Silence).

11). Pro-homosexual Agenda in the Schools (Silence).

12). “Politically Correct: No Talk of Jesus” (Silence).

13). 501-c3 Tax-Exempt Status for Churches/Wards of State (Silence).

14). Abortion promotion/Planned Parenthood Sex Ed in the Schools (Silence).

15). Coexist Movement/”Any god but Jesus” (Silence).

16). Prohibition of Prayer in Public Places (Silence).

17). Christians getting fired over “Facebook posts” about Jesus, etc. (Silence).

18). Common-Core Education in Schools/Dumbing Down Our Children Here in America (Silence).

19). The Catholic Church not disclosing their wealth/finances (Silence).

20). The Catholic Church openly worshiping Lucifer & having had created a FALSE/PAGAN CHRISTIANITY (Silence).

21). The Catholic Church worshiping idols and “saints” (which are actually DEMONS in disguise) – Silence.

22). The blatant attack on Christianity in music, movies, books, TV shows, etc. (Silence).

Though there are MANY, MANY more that I haven’t listed, those are 22 cases ALONE where Christians (as a whole) DID NOT rise up and STAND UP FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN! Instead of standing up FOR their beliefs, they let the non-believers and/or those of different religions walk all over them and squash them like bugs, metaphorically and spiritually speaking. So it’s really NO WONDER that hardly anyone truly respects Christians, today.

A famous man once said (Alexander Hamilton, perhaps?) “He who stands for nothing falls for anything” and OH how true that is, in today’s world.

People are always secretly “testing” Christians. A homosexual will see if they can try to get a Christian to eventually “agree” with their gay/sodomite lifestyle OR will try to openly destroy a Christian person’s business. A person of a different religion will try to see if they can get the Christian to believe they worship the same god (think Muslims, mostly). A person that likes to party alot will try to see if they can get a Christian drunk atleast ONCE, in order to make them fall. And so on and so forth.

But the truth is, Christians aren’t truly respected (as a whole) in this country, anymore. All one has to do is browse through today’s many news headlines or turn on the TV or look at 98% of modern day movies to confirm this fact. And while a huge part of it IS due to bible prophecy, like I said, the other part of it is actually something that likely COULD’VE been helped (even if only a little bit and even if only temporarily); for if biblical-roots Christians started standing up for/had stood up for their faith in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty and the bible and its precepts and started pushing back against all the “media onslaught” against them, things would start to change (even if only for a little while).

Lets face it. One of the ONLY reasons the homosexual movement has been so successful is DUE to the fact of all the biblical-roots Christians out there (as a whole) not standing up for their faith and making a stand. Bit by bit and little by little, in just 30 years time, we went from a highly conservative society that never even “talked” about “gay”, to now being a society where a man can kiss another man on LIVE TELEVISION, LGBT Activists get married and adopt, biblical-roots Christianity is bastardized and pro-lifers get physically attacked on a daily basis and it’s just like “oh well”. Plus I won’t even mention all the “transgender media ONSLAUGHT”, as of late.

But I guess the point I’m trying to make is that “lukewarm Christians” (as a whole) have only managed to SPEED UP bible prophecy in the making, NOT slow it down. Because honestly at THIS rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yeshua/Jesus Christ returns this year or next year (though the bible specifically says no man knows the day or the hour). And one thing’s for sure: we need to get our lives in order and need to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty. Because at the current rate of ACCELERATION of bible prophecy, I know personally and spiritually speaking that our time here left on Earth is short. Someday, ALL of mankind will stand before a holy, divine judgement seat of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty, someday. Where will YOU stand on that fateful day?

What’s really, really sad to me is that all the people out there who “joke” about hell and Jesus and the bible? On the Day of Judgement, it won’t be a “joke” anymore……they will come to see their eternal reality…….and then, o then, how they will desperately cry out in fearful tears of agony and ask Jesus to please forgive them for their previous *perpetual* earthly mocking of/open rejection of him……..but by then, it’ll be too late……….their fate will be sealed for eternity……

Another sobering thing to think about is all the Christians out there that follow “Counterfeit Christianity”……the Christianity that “claims” it’s based on the bible (Catholic-roots Christianity) but actually ISN’T……..Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7: 21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”. 

So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask? It means that many modern-day “Christians” will be eternally cast out from Jesus Christ and the angels…….FOREVER. Why? Because while living on the Earth, they followed the traditions of man, instead of the traditions of God.

In the bible, Yeshua/Jesus Christ gave warning after warning after warning about how one should follow the bible/mandates/traditions of God, rather than traditions of man.

So that begs of question: what are the traditions of God and what are the traditions of man? Lets examine………

God’s tradition/mandates/commands:

  • 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday — please remember that a Jewish/biblical day begins at sunset the night before — therefore, Friday sundown to Saturday sundown is the TRUE biblical Sabbath)
  • 7 Annual Feasts outlined in Leviticus 23: Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Day of Atonement, Feast of Trumpets (which were celebrated by ALL Christians/Jews around Jesus’s 1st time on Earth!)
  • Love thy enemies, bless those who curse you, pray for those who hate you
  • Make a disciple of all nations
  • Follow and APPLY the 10 commandments to one’s life
  • Praise God/Yeshua continuously for all he’s done for you/all of mankind
  • Praise God before every meal
  • Get full-water immersion baptized IMMEDIATELY upon first believing in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty
  • We are saved by grace through faith (and will be judged for our works, accordingly)

Man’s tradition/mandates/commands:

  • 1st Day Sabbath (Sunday) — please keep in mind that Constantine, a HUMAN MAN — with the help of CATHOLIC BISHOPS — changed the Sabbath Day from Saturday, the 7th day, to Sunday, the 1st day of the week, and that there is NO biblical reference for this!
  • Man’s Holidays: Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, Easter — which were not only NOT sanctioned by God/Jesus Christ in ANY type of way, but also have NO biblical reference for observance!
  • Curse thy enemies, insult those who insult you, don’t care at all about those who hate you
  • Hide behind a church’s 4 walls and GO “to church” instead of BEING “the church”
  • The 10 commandments and Old Testament NO LONGER APPLY
  • Baptism is no longer necessary OR it can be delayed for MORE THAN A YEAR!
  • We don’t need to thank God since he already knows we’re thankful
  • Fasting and/or praying before meals is no longer necessary
  • We are saved by Works, alone (Catholic leanings)

Notice the difference, there?

And again, not trying to be hateful or judgmental there…..I’m only here stating the true facts of the bible vs. today’s “religious culture” because I LOVE ya’ll and don’t want any man, woman or child in today’s “Christianity” to be deceived!

Many people want to think that Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth but we’re never actually told ANYWHERE in the bible by Jesus to celebrate his birth, ONLY his death/resurrection/ascension to heaven. Honestly. Show me just ONE verse where Jesus tells his disciples to celebrate his birth, if you can. Just ONE. Hint: You won’t find it. While you’ll find passages detailing Jesus’s birth and of the 3 wisemen bringing him gifts, you will never see ONE verse in the bible that COMMANDS us to celebrate his birth. Don’t you think that if Jesus Christ truly wanted us to celebrate his birth AND death, that he would’ve mentioned it somewhere?

And YES……Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty being born into human form is a great, miraculous WONDERFUL thing…….and a TOTAL MIRACLE of God, in and of itself………and is cause for “celebration” in our minds and hearts. However, the bible gives NO indication that we’re meant to “formally celebrate it” by any means of a “holiday” or like thing. And not only that, but Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty is a HECK of alot more than just a helpless babe in a manger. He is the ALPHA & OMEGA, The First & The Last!

On the OTHER hand, no research shows that Jesus was born anywhere around the time of December, in and of itself. And not only that but what Christmas actually DOES celebrate is the Winter Solstice and birth of Yule/Mithras and death of Tammuz (who was later turned into a “god”of sorts).

Don’t believe me? Examine.

 

 

 

 

“I’ve Become A Christian: Now What?” Part Two

I’ve noticed some modern-day persecution of Christians on Youtube, for example. Whenever a video receives almost nothing but “glowing messages” in the comments section, that usually means that there’s some minor error that’s wrong in the video that most people haven’t picked up on. However, when there’s nothing BUT truth in a video, oftentimes there will TONS of messages of hate and severe persecution underneath the video that can NOT be backed up by the bible. If the comments underneath a video can be backed up with the bible, then it’s likely to be humble correction on the part of the commenter.

However, if what a commenter says can NOT be backed up with the bible, that’s usually the mark of a true demonic attack on the video poster themselves. But persecution doesn’t just happen on Youtube. It happens in news articles, in public and even in the home or workplace as well. For example, I work in a place where, the most part, people don’t love God. Anyone that goes to church or believes in Jesus is seen as “uncool” and there’s ALOT of pressure for people to go out and drink, party, have casual sex relationships and smoke hash.

And if you DON’T do any of those things, the coworkers act nice to you in person and then talk about what a “spiritual hypocrite/religious bigot/goody-two-shoes” you are behind your back. And any attempts to tell them about Jesus (on your part) is somehow seen as “HATE”. Not to mention that upper management hints at you with this look of “better keep your religion out of it or you’ll likely lose your job, here!” In fact, our latest employee handbook says that no necklace jewelry is to be worn other than a medical one. So it would seem they don’t want people wearing cross necklaces for fear of offending all the atheists/etc. out there.

James 4:4 says: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”. And I’m gonna be brutally honest with you, here. It is NOT easy to live a life set apart from the world. People will laugh at you, make fun of you, argue with you, make you feel guilty and like you’re some sort of “religious bigot”, exclude you from group outings, PRESSURE YOU TO BECOME MORE LIKE THEM — FULL OF DARKNESS — etc. all because you believe in Jesus Christ and following his commands in the bible.

People that are “friends” with the world are “worldly”, meaning they chase after ungodly pursuits such as lust, pride, greed, arrogance, envy, money/materialism, humanism, intellectualism without God, fame, etc. And in so doing, they become “enemies” of God, since God outlaws these practices and pursuits in the bible. However, those who pursue RIGHTEOUS pursuits such as chasity before/outside marriage, humbleness, giving to others less fortunate than them/putting other’s needs before their own, intellectualism WITH God, the disinterest in money/materialism, etc. are considered “friends” of God but “enemies” of the world and its “wordly pursuits”.

But one of the most IRONIC times that Satan uses to attack Christians is when they are at a HIGH point in their lives. Because lets face it, when everything’s going well in our lives, we tend to think our success is of our OWN accord, instead of on Jesus Christ’s accord. For example, maybe a missionary has successfully converted 70 people in one week in like, Guatemala or somewhere. And at the end of week, that Christian missionary starts to become full of themselves, saying to themselves from within: “wow, my missionary skills are TOTALLY AWESOME, I’m INDESTRUCTIBLE!”, totally forgetting the facts that it was the Lord who put him/her there in that country to begin with, the Lord who brought those spiritually hungry souls before him/her and the Lord himself who worked in the minds, hearts, bodies and spirits of those saved/converted people.

Or perhaps a Christian on WordPress or Youtube suddenly gains many subscribers and starts letting it go to their heads, instead of gracefully, fearfully and humbly thanking the Lord Jesus for opening up those peoples’ minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to his wonderful Eternal Truth (the truth of Salvation in him and him, ALONE!). When we have everything we need, we tend to forget God and his hand in things and that’s when Satan swoops in on us and thinks to himself “haha! NOW is my moment, during their most vulnerable time of weakness!” But when we DON”T have everything we need and are STRUGGLING, that’s when we REALLY start to get down on our knees to cry out to Jesus Christ, am I right?

Satan knows he doesn’t have a very good chance of trying to get us while we’re struggling (he KNOWS many of us will cry out to Jesus Christ in prayer during those times) but he knows just how truly VULNERABLE we are during times of “great accomplishment” in our lives. Hebrews 11:6 states: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. In other words, we must believe that Jesus Christ is who he says he is (the Son of God), and also that he rewards those who diligently seek him; not just halfway or partially seek him but DILIGENTLY seek him. Simply put, we must have FAITH.

Revelation 21:8 says : “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”. In other words, those who FEAR they’re not truly saved by Jesus Christ and those who do NOT believe that Jesus Christ is who he says he is or that he even exists, shall be eternally condemned in the lake of fire. And so once you become a fully-submerged baptized person in the name of Jesus Christ and become a bible-believing and bible-APPLYING Christian, you must CONTINUE being a bible-believing, bible-APPLYING Christian. You can’t just give up at the first sight of spiritual onslaught.

The degree to what Satan tempts you is ALSO a good sign of where you currently are, with the Lord. If Satan tries to tempt you ALOT, then you KNOW you’re in good with the Lord. But if he only tempts you from to time, then you need to re-examine your spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and find out if there’s something holding you back from a true spiritual relationship with him. Because lets face it, Satan doesn’t really have to tempt someone that much who’s already is or who’s become a “wayward Christian” of sorts. Think about it, folks!

I pray that all who read this will be saved in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and will stay saved for all eternity. Amen.

“IDOLS” in Modern Day Society

It’s always been funny how historians or pop culture reporters always describe certain people as “modern day icons”/”20th century icons” or how people on online message boards will say “he/she’s always been my idol” or someone on tv will say “like, oh my gosh, you guys are my IDOLS!”

But the thing that’s caught the most attention with me lately concerning idols are three main things: 1) the TV show in and of itself called American Idol (truly think about what the name implies), the over-exposure of Lady Gaga in the media/travel industry/schools, and also the very nature of idols themselves within the Catholic Church.

Of previous notice to me was always how certain people/reporters will describe musicians as “the king of Pop”, “the rock n’ roll gods”, “the god of guitar”, “the god of rock” or even songs themselves that have lyrics such as “we’re fighting with the gods of war”.

But one thing is certain: modern day society is saying that it’s OK to idolize things or people, that it’s OK to have idols or even to BE an idol. Look no further than Hollywood, CA where the majority of modern day “idols” reside. People hysterically SCREAMING in excitement and crying tears of joy as they try to touch their “idol” (that is, their idolized celebrity) just once.

But tell me. When is the last time that anyone ever got that excited about Jesus Christ?

Well, I’ll tell you when, to be precise. It was around the time when Jesus Christ made his triumphant entry into Jerusalem and people layed down their cloaks to cover up his path and waved palm branches at him and possibly screamed and cried in excitement as he passed by, riding on a donkey.

So let me ask you this. Who or what is the “main attraction and/or focus” in YOUR life? Is it Jesus Christ (the one and only true God)? Or is it another (including yourself?)

Many Satanists/Atheists/Agnostics/Intellectuals today say or claim that they don’t actually worship Satan but instead worship themselves (Humanism). However, by refusing to worship Jesus Christ and by worshipping themselves and or this world or the things IN this world, they ARE, in an indirect sense, worshipping Satan and don’t even realize it (or don’t care, one of the two).

Others are on the active path of following other religions and/or other gods. And they too, are on an active path of worshipping Satan without even realizing it.

See, here’s the brutal reality. Whoever doesn’t worship Jesus Christ IS worshipping Satan. They do not necessarily have to have the official label of “Satanist” to BE a “Satanist” in God’s eyes.

The truth of the matter is, there’s only TWO choices one can make. They can choose to live FOR God/Jesus Christ or they can choose to live AGAINST God/Jesus Christ. There is NO other way. NONE.

Light vs. Dark, Good vs. Evil. We each pick a side to live on and then later on, after we die, we enter into eternal existence. But the question is, where will YOU spend eternity? Because where we spend eternity depends on what side we were on while we were living our lives on Earth. Did we live FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ?

Let us examine the 10 commandments.

1. Thou shall have no other gods before me (“gods” like Buddha, Allah, Joseph Smith, Zenu, money, fame, celebrities, the “worshipping” of people or things other than Jesus Christ Almighty, etc.)

2. Thou shall have unto thee no idols or graven images (anything that is in heaven, on Earth below or down below the Earth)

3. Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain (saying the word “God” without any sincere spiritual reference to God Almighty, even if it’s just something “simple” like “oh my God, you’re such a dork, dude!”)

4. Thou shall remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy (to remember means to ADHERE to it — Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, the TRUE 7th day Sabbath — remember that Jewish time begins as Sunset, the night before — and NOT Sun-day, the FALSE Sabbath!)

5. Thou shall not commit adultery (and that includes even doing so much as lusting after someone in one’s heart that one is not married to!)

6. Thou shall honor thy father and thy mother

7. Thou shall not kill (and that includes even doing so much as hating someone in your heart)

8. Thou shall not steal (even if it’s just as something as simple as ONE penny or a pen from the bank……..like, SERIOUSLY…..)

9. Thou shall not lie (EVEN if one thinks it is in one’s best interests).

10.  Thou shall not envy/wish for things that belong to others (how MANY times have we thought to ourselves thoughts like “I wish *I* had a clean house like so and so did or I wish *I* was as skinny as so and and so, etc., etc? Lets be honest with ourselves, here!)

[Please also note that the Lord Jesus Christ expanded on most of these in his Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew, chapters 5-7 and also that the Sabbath was created long before Moses EVER walked the Earth, which would indicate the Sabbath is for ALL of mankind, and not just some].

Okay, Romans 3:23 says “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Therefore, what that means in plain English is that NOBODY is perfect. We’ve all sinned in God’s eyes, we’ve all made mistakes.

However, there is some good news and that’s this. John 3:16 says “for God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] should not perish [go to eternal condemnation] but have everlasting life [eternity with Jesus Christ in Paradise].

So essentially what that means is if we have faith in Jesus Christ, acknowledge our sins to Jesus Christ in prayer, pray for forgiveness of our sins, repent/give up our sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, spread the gospel to all nations and lead a life that’s pleasing to Jesus Christ by obeying all his commandments [such as 10 commandments, and all New Testament teachings — specifically, the Sermon on the Mount teachings), we’ll be forgiven of ALL our sins when we die and assured a spot in eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday.

All the rest will go to hell and/or eternal condemnation in an everlasting fire. Jesus described hell in Luke 13:28 “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out”. In other words, every single person that dies without ever truly accepting or trusting Jesus Christ (meaning, having true faith in him) will be eternally cast out.

However, at some point right before, during, or after the time a person is cast out from eternal paradise with Jesus Christ, Jesus says that person will see all the prophets of God standing in the kingdom of God/eternal paradise. And to be cast out from the kingdom of God means to be burnt alive with fire – for eternity.

But going back to the 10 commandments. We already KNOW why modern day society openly violates all 10 commandments, especially the 2nd and 4th one; (the TRUE Sabbath is actually on SATURDAY and is from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).

Modern day American society is “Babylonian” and full of nothing but darkness because it’s controlled by Satan. It WANTS to keep you entertained. It WANTS to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ. It WANTS you to worship other gods besides Jesus Christ (notice how rock music NEVER mocked Buddha, Allah, Joseph Smith, etc? Why is that, do you think? Think about it. Birds of a feather flock together)

It WANTS you to lie, cheat and steal (even doing so much as stealing someone’s boyfriend/girlfriend, wife/husband and/or fiance/fiancee is classified in God’s eyes as *stealing”), it WANTS you to lust, it WANTS you to envy things that belong to others, it WANTS you to hate, it WANTS you to cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend, wife/husband, or fiance/fiancee, it WANTS you to lie, it WANTS you to say the Lord’s name in vain. Lets face it, this dark world and the things OF this world are DESIGNED by Satan and his demons to try to suck your soul away from Jesus Christ! Think about it, folks!

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

This is pure SPIRITUAL WARFARE……….a WAR FOR YOUR SOUL…….

The question is, who will win? Will Jesus Christ win your soul or will Satan win your soul?

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

For the people who die without Jesus Christ aren’t sent to hell and/or eternal condemnation by Jesus Christ by choice.  Those folks simply CHOSE to go there.

For we either CHOOSE to accept Jesus Christ or we CHOOSE to reject him. There IS no other way in this world but those 2 paths. Sorry guys but that’s the brutal reality of it all.

Remember that all paths that lead AWAY from Jesus Christ lead to Satan, which then leads to hell and/or eternal condemnation and that all paths that lead to truth lead to Jesus Christ, which then leads to everlasting life/eternal paradise with Jesus Christ.

When people die, they are sent to 1 of 2 places (eternal paradise with God/Jesus Christ) or eternal condemnation in everlasting fire) But the choice is up to YOU. Would YOU be willing to die without Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior? I wouldn’t. Those that die without ever having accepted salvation, trust, love, faith, obedience etc. in Jesus Christ will LOSE THEIR SOUL. FOR ETERNITY.

So please. I beg of you. Please cry out to Jesus Christ today and get to know him while there’s still time. We never know when we’re gonna die, just like we never know when this world’s gonna end.

Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only”.

The Power Of Starting Over On A Fresh, Clean Slate….

We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we regret and that we possibly hate ourselves for, looking back…..things in our lives that we wish we NEVER would’ve said or done or that we should’ve done DIFFERENTLY.

Well, with Jesus Christ, we CAN start all over and we CAN have our slate wiped clean and start a new life.

But first, we must have an INTERNAL change within our mind, heart, body and spirit. We have to regret all our misdeeds/”sins” in our life SO MUCH that we’re willing to do almost anything to change them.

What’s sin? Sin is transgression of the law (of God). Ever stolen anything? Ever lusted after a woman (men) or a man (ladies) that you weren’t married to? Ever told a lie? Said the Lord’s name in vain? That makes you a thief, an adulterer, a liar and a blasphemer and that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

But that is where Jesus Christ comes in. The prophesied Jewish Messiah talked about in the Old Testament and the only true begotten Son of God, HE gave his very own LIFE during the crucifixion & shed his very own holy blood, just SO mankind could be FORGIVEN for their sins AND assured a spot in Eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday! And there is NO greater love than that, people!

Jesus Christ loves us all SO MUCH, that he was more than willing to DIE for us on the cross, just so WE could be forgiven of our sins and just so WE could have a way to spend ETERNITY WITH GOD IN NEW JERUSALEM someday. And so again, there is NO greater love than that!

3 days later after Jesus Christ was crucified, he rose from the dead (just like he told his disciples he would). [Google the “Shroud of Turin”] And 40 days after that, Jesus Christ (in front of the apostles and others) ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God, the heavenly Father. But don’t just take MY word for it. See for yourselves!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and he proved it…..not only in the bible and to his disciples and various non-Christian crowds after he rose from the dead just 3 days later after he died on the cross, but to myself as well (during a near-death experience).

The thing about Jesus Christ is that he doesn’t care WHO you are or WHAT you’ve done so far in your life. You CAN be forgiven for all your sins, just like you CAN start over a brand new life in him!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper, bank robber, homeless, a drug addicted person, a practicing homosexual. No sin is too bad to be forgiven of, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: (many bible scholars believe that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to claim that Jesus Christ got his power from Satan but it can also likely mean several other things, too, such as not believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and DYING in that sin of unbelief, etc.)

Jesus Christ can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and turn it around and make that person CLEAN by teaching that person how to OVERCOME their unrighteousness and become a righteous person in his heavenly site! Jesus Christ can set a person FREE from their sins and their failures and their addictions.

Whatever you’re going through in life, Jesus Christ has a solution and an answer. But you got to TRUST JESUS CHRIST to change your life. But you must TRUST HIM. Meaning that you must first of all BELIEVE that Jesus Christ IS the only begotten Son of God AND that he died for your sins AND that he has the power to change you from within. And once you believe in the power of the Lord and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to change you, he will change you. He will also give you the gift of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of truth/spirit of spiritual discernment that will let you know what things are truly of God and what things are NOT of God).

And as soon as you fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ beyond ALL reasonable doubt, you must get immediately baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the ceremonial “washing away of sins”. You don’t have to do it publicly or by a priest. You can do it in a swimming pool, river, lake or your very own bathtub filled with water (because remember that it must be a FULL IMMERSION baptism, according to the bible and NOT a “sprinkling”).

You must then also (to the very best of your ability) obey all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible (including the 10 commandments, the 7th-Day biblical Sabbath (because remember that the “Sunday Sabbath” seen today is NOT biblical at all), the 7 holy feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.), Sermon on the Mount, etc.) and preach the gospel to others to everyone/anyone who’ll listen.

Many Christians today think that the 7th-Day Sabbath was done away with and also that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts were done away with the New Testament as well. But did you know that Jesus Christ and his disciples NOT ONLY participated in the 7th-Day Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) but also in the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) as well? [Some bible scholars even suggest he ALSO participated in the 2 “Minor” Jewish Feasts (Purim & Festival of Lights/Hanukah).

Yeshua/Jesus Christ Himself even said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law & the prophets. For I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. And we know this won’t happen (the first heaven and Earth passing away, that is) until Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! 

But upon believing in and getting baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you will become a new creature in the Lord and start a NEW LIFE in him! Everything you’ve done in your life so far will not matter, anymore. The only thing that’ll matter from the MOMENT you become saved in Yeshua/Jesus Christ to the moment you die in this life is where you stand with Yeshua/Jesus Christ. And where you stand with Jesus Christ is determined by how you LIVE for Jesus Christ….

For example, do you believe in Jesus Christ? Have you accepted him as Lord & Savior? Have you prayed for forgiveness of your sins? Have you given up your sins and stopped doing them? Have you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ? Do you witness about Jesus Christ and Salvation to others? Do you do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ tells you to do (such as obey the 10 commandments and Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew5-7 as well as several OTHER New Testament commands? Some possible examples (depending on what the Lord needs from you at the time) might be things like “write a letter of apology to this person, go witness to that person, give the coat off your back to that homeless person over there, donate your leftover food to the food bin”, etc.

Are you in that place in your life where, if you were to die today or tonight, you’d know for 100% sure beyond all reasonable doubt that you’d go to eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday and not the fires of hell? If you are NOT 100% sure, then it’s time for you to examine yourself and your life and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal to you about anything that’s holding you back from him. Cause lets face it…..5 minutes of sin is not worth eternal condemnation in the fire (“flames of torment”).

One of these days, the Earth and everything in it is gonna pass away someday (including all the material things and wealth). The Lord said in Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new Earth”.

And all of mankind will be judged for their actions (rather good or bad) by Jesus Christ. Will YOU stand before the Lord Jesus Christ someday on the Day of Judgment upon the Earth and say to him “I’m sorry Lord…during my Earthly life,  my sin was MUCH more important to me than YOU, I don’t want to go to eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches” now, please forgive me?”

That won’t fly with the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances throughout their lifetimes to change their lives around and to hear the message of the gospel/be saved from their sins! And so IF by the end of a person’s life, a person hasn’t accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior/asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins with a “righteous repentance” in their mind, heart, body and spirit, that is NOT God’s fault!

Now that begs of question. If people know AHEAD OF TIME that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to New Jerusalem, the ONLY one true God, and the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be spared from God’s eternal wrath in the fire, why do they still choose to reject him? Why do they STILL choose to go to “eternal condemnation” even when they know that the place of eternal condemnation is going to be an awful, torturous, gruesome place FOR ETERNITY? Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ will spare THEM just because they donated to charity, or never killed anyone and that sort’ve thing?

Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ is a “unrepentant-sin-accepting” type of God? And/or that he’s the type of God to be “sweet-talked” to or to let sin go UNPUNISHED? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE! Jesus Christ is a righteous, holy, and PURE God! And he lets NO sin into NEW JERUSALEM/the eternal kingdom. None. A person’s “good deeds” or money or good looks will NOT save them from the holy, divine wrath of God!

Yet, many people out there think: “well, Jesus Christ is such a holy, righteous God, there’s NO WAY he’d accept me!” Again, wrong….Jesus Christ will save and accept ANYONE who truly calls upon his name, prays for forgiveness of their sins, repents of their sins, gets baptized in his heavenly name, preaches the gospel to others, obey his commandments in the bible, trusts him & truly abides in him by the way they LIVE for him.

I got a short parable for you. Luke 18:9-14: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”. 

The tax collector was justified before God/Jesus and NOT the Pharisee. Why? Because not only did the tax collector have the faith and desire for Jesus in his life, but he TRUSTED Jesus Christ to change him from within and cleanse his spirit and his ways. The Pharisee just basically bragged about how “holy” he was and lacked a true spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pharisee became one of those in the group of people which Jesus says: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” – [Matthew 7:22-23]

But to the tax collector and all repentant sinners, Jesus Christ will say: “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” – [Matthew 25:21]

But basically, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done so far in your life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed 5 banks or 75. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently addicted to drugs or alcohol. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper or a drug lord. Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for ALL of mankind’s sins! And no sin is too great for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! He can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and help change them into a RIGHTEOUS PERSON! 

Jesus Christ will save ANYONE who truly calls upon his name from the depths of their being. No prayer will go unanswered for those who really, truly pray to get to know Jesus Christ and that means the prayer from the depths of their spirit!

But if you want to get to know Jesus Christ and have him save you FROM YOUR SINS and help you overcome your sins and your addictions, you must pray for Jesus Christ to save you and you must do so, NOW! (And believe the prayer with your whole entire mind, heart, and spirit). Every SECOND of your life spent without Jesus Christ leads you one step closer to hell and/or eternal condemnation. And like I said, death comes to us all. We NEVER know when we’re gonna die. All those who die without Jesus Christ in their lives go to eternal condemnation in the flames for eternity. So please don’t be one of those people, folks!

If you’re an atheist/agnostic that’s having trouble believing in Jesus Christ or God or the concept of a God, then I would ask you to PRAY to believe (but mean the prayer 100% in your heart) and also check out the following website that lists SEVERAL ancient historical non-Christian sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven.

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

And again, I pray that each and every soul who reads this will become saved from their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late. Amen.

When Someone Stabs You In The Back……

How many of us have ever had someone proverbially stab us in the back?

A friend? A coworker? An ex-boyfriend/girlfriend? A possible family member? Or even a complete stranger?

And how did we feel when they very first did so?

Our first reaction was likely shock and anger, followed by a sense of hurt, resentment & disillusionment. In our younger day, we might’ve thought of *revenge tactics* to get back at them. But in our older day, we slowly come to realize that two wrongs don’t make a right and also that there’s usually something going on with a person psychologically or emotionally if they hurt someone like that.

But you got to realize something. Nine times out of ten, it’s not ABOUT you. It’s really about them and their character. Many people who feel insecure in their own lives will go about trying to put down other people trying to make themselves feel better. But that doesn’t mean you have to partake in their drama. No. You can be better than that.

When Jesus Christ died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins, he KNEW how humans would be like after that. He knew the future that would encapsulate the “culture” surrounding the passage of Matthew24:12-13: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”  Just like he KNEW that many people, in the End of Days, would stab each other in the back and constantly try to “one up” one another (either for the pure revenge of it or just for the mere “fun” of it). 

And though there is the popular saying “don’t get mad, get EVEN”, Jesus Christ would likely say to each of us something along the lines of: “I understand if you’re mad/hurt about this but don’t let your anger get the best of you and do NOT get even”. The Lord God said in the bible in Romans 12:19 (KJV) Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord”

In other words, if we HATE someone that hurt us,  or go out of our way to try to hurt THEM, the only person we’re hurting is ourselves. It takes SO much time and mental energy to HATE someone. But it takes very little time and energy to try to forgive someone. Afterall, we’re all human, we ALL make mistakes. And besides, that person might not have realized they’ve hurt us. And if they hurt us *intentionally*, well, then it’s really themselves that they’re hurting. Cause no true person in their RIGHT MIND would have to go to such great lengths to hurt someone unless they themselves were hurting from within.

Though some people that LIKE to “one up” people seem to feel pretty good about themselves from the onset. But lets face it. No truly CONFIDENT person would have to hurt someone in order to prove their worth. For if they were TRULY confident in themselves, they wouldn’t HAVE to prove anything, see? Because they’d technically already KNOW their self-worth, without having to prove or justify it.

But I see that type of behavior in people all the time. Female friends try to steal each other’s boyfriends. Brothers try to steal their brothers’ girlfriend(s). Children/teens are rude/mean to their parents or vice versa. Coworkers try to rip each other to shreds when the boss is not looking. Ex-boyfriends and girlfriends acting all “catty” with one another, trying to make one another jealous…Or even people on Youtube MAJORLY mocking others on Youtube, even.

We are now living in the End of Days and what Jesus Christ said in Matthew 24:12-13 (New Testament, book of Matthew, chapter24, verse 12-13)”And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”.

Proverbs 20:22 says: “Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee”

Plus the Lord’s Prayer states the following:

“Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen”

“So what does THAT mean?”, you may ask yourselves. (The part in which I particularly emphasized and underlined).

It means that if WE want to be forgiven by Jesus Christ for all the wrong things that WE ourselves have ever said or done throughout our lifetime, that WE must forgive OTHERS that have said or done wrong/hurtful things towards US.

And I know that’s easier said than done. But the good thing about the Lord Jesus Christ is that he will ALWAYS answer a sincere prayer.

If there’s someone in your life who has majorly hurt you and you’re having trouble forgiving that person, then take it to Jesus. Pray to him “Lord, I’m still very hurt and angry over this person who has hurt me. Please help me with forgiving this person as I am still struggling with that. I don’t WANT to hate this person or be mad at them anymore. Please help me Lord. Amen” and the Lord will slowly help you forgive that person. And once you truly forgive a person and are able to move on with your life, it is the most peaceful, happiest feeling in the world. It’s like the Lord Jesus Christ has set your soul free from the *sinful bondage* of hate/resentment/anger.

Note: EVEN IF somebody has already passed on or you’ve lost contact with that person, you can STILL forgive that person or those people and be released from the sinful bond of anger/resentment/hatred. Just pray: “Lord, I know it’s too late at this point to have an Earthly reconciliation with this person, but please cleanse my heart and mind and allow me to fully forgive this person. Thank-you, Lord. Amen”.

And if it’s a case where you just can’t seem to forgive this person, no matter WHAT you do, (be they dead/lost contact with or alive), pray the following prayer : “Lord, this person has done SO much to hurt me, I’m STILL angry, hurt, disillusioned, scared. I don’t know if I can ever forgive this person or not, on my own. Please heal me and cleanse me from within so that I can someday forgive this person with no sinful burden of anger in my heart. I don’t WANT to hate anymore! Please help me get rid of the hate in my heart so that I can forgive this person. Amen”. And pray and believe the prayer with ALL your heart, ALL your soul and ALL your mind and the Lord Jesus WILL cleanse you and help you forgive that person/people! MARK MY WORDS!

See, cause if you CONTINUE to hate someone for hurting you without forgiving them, not ONLY will Jesus Christ not forgive YOU for all YOUR sins throughout your lifetime [Jesus said during the Sermon on the Mount that hate is = to murder in our hearts!] but the hate and resentment will just eat AWAY at you, night and day. Sooner or later, you will start to hate everything and EVERYONE. You will become extremely pessimistic and bitter and find no joy in ANYTHING. Your life will hardly seem worth living.

But if you can learn to forgive someone for hurting you (with the Lord Jesus’s divine help, ofcourse), then your soul will be SET FREE from all that *negative energy* trying to weigh you down. You will feel relaxed, as if a HUGE weight has been lifted off your shoulders. You will feel content and free and joyous in the Lord and joyous in your life. Plus you will be better able to start preaching the gospel again and maybe even having some more opportunities to spread the gospel. Your spirit will feel *spiritually revived*.

Sometimes people are depressed and got problems in their life. So they subconsciously try to hurt or lie to others to try to make themselves feel better. Yet, others are sometimes jealous of what we have and what they feel they do NOT have. But regardless the reason, NEVER let it get to you! Not only does Jesus Christ say we must FORGIVE the people that hurt us in our lifetime but we must also PRAY for them.

We must pray that Satan will lose his grip on their souls and that the Lord will open up their eyes and make them see what they are doing and why it is wrong.

[[And ya know what? Many a Satanist, Wiccan, Atheist, Scientist, Agnostic, criminal, etc. were brought to faith in God by the DILIGENT prayers of the loved ones and/or Christians around them. So never say never. For NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH THE LORD! 😉 In fact, remember that section of the Old Testament that talks about Abraham and his wife Sarai and how God told Abraham that his wife Sarai was to have a baby (even in her old age?) And how both she and Abraham laughed at the idea on separate occasions and of how God said in Genesis 18: 13-14: And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son”.]]

On the other hand, we should never TOLERATE repeated bad behavior from others. There’s a difference between forgiving someone and getting out of a bad situation.

But no matter the situation, one thing is clear. Jesus Christ hears ALL the prayers of his faithful (those who strive to live by his standards in the bible and beyond).

Even if you DO resent someone right now or you feel like you’re 20 million miles away from Jesus Christ right now, or him from you, pray to be restored to him. Pray that he’ll help you forgive people or overcome whatever sin you’re struggling with right now. Time is of the essence.

The sooner you forgive people in your life, and the sooner you become restored to Jesus Christ again, the better.

I pray for all the souls that read this and pray that each soul that reads this is either brought back to Jesus Christ or comes to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before it’s too late and their souls are lost for eternity. Amen.




REPENT….Or Suffer the ETERNAL Consequences…

Not ONE of us is perfect……not ONE…..this is apparent in Romans 3:23 in the New Testament (New Testament, book of Romans, chapter 3, verse 23) which clearly states:For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

Which means that none of us are perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time and do things in our lives that are displeasing to God/Jesus Christ (rather intentionally or unintentionally). It’s how we DEAL with those shortcomings/mistakes/sins that determine our eternal fate and where we are with God/Jesus Christ.

First of all, we must remember that Jesus Christ IS God in the flesh and that he is SO pure and SO holy, that no sin can enter the FUTURE New Heavenly city, called “New Jerusalem”. Not one. Jesus Christ was crucified for mankind to be forgiven of their sins. 3 days later, he rose from the dead [Google “Shroud of Turin”] and 40 days later, he ascended back up to God the heavenly Father in heaven to be on his right hand side. (There are SEVERAL eyewitness accounts to his crucifixion, resurrection and ascension, specifically ancient historical non-Christian ones that can be read at the following):

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

So now that I’ve given you non-Christian sources which back up the fact that Jesus Christ WAS in fact God in the flesh, you can also be self-assured that Jesus Christ is also the judge of all mankind. One of these days, Jesus Christ will return to the Earth on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem and he’s going to judge every single man, woman, and child that’s ever lived on the Earth and all those unfortunate souls that either chose NOT to believe in him and/or NOT to live a life that’s pleasing to him will be eternally punished by Jesus Christ in the lake of fire.

But those who tried to live lives that were PLEASING to God/Jesus Christ by praying for forgiveness of sins, repenting/giving up their sins, following the commandments of Jesus Christ in the bible (the 10 commandments and the Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew chapters 5-7, as well as the rest of his New Testament teachings), getting baptized in his name immediately upon believing in Him, and spreading the gospel to others and having faith in and TRUSTING Jesus Christ will inherit the gift of *everlasting life*. Everlasting life simply means *eternal life with Jesus Christ in Paradise/New Jerusalem*.

Just think for one moment. Think of the happiest moment of your life. Multiply that one single moment times 77 trillion infinity and that’s just a small “taste” of what eternal Paradise/New Jerusalem with Jesus Christ would be like.

Now imagine your WORST moment in life. Multiply that awful moment by 99 trillion infinity, while at the same time, roasting in an eternal flame and that’s just a small “taste” of what eternal punishment/condemnation would be like.

But the Gospel (Yiddish is it? for “Good News”) says it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t HAVE to go to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the lake of fire. For it is honestly not God’s will for ANYONE to go to hell and/or eternal condemnation. That is WHY he sent his holy Son, Jesus Christ, to be tried and crucified for forgiveness of mankind’s sins.

However, in order to receive the FREE GIFT of salvation/forgiveness of sins, there’s several things one must do before this can be done.

One must:

1) believe in Jesus Christ (or PRAY to believe if one doesn’t already believe in him).

2) acknowledge one’s sins TO Jesus Christ and then pray for forgiveness of one’s sins

3) accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord & Savior

4) REPENT of their sins (meaning, give them up and stop doing them)

5) get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ IMMEDIATELY upon believing in him — it can be in a swimming pool, a river, a bathtub full of water — doesn’t matter and no PRIEST is required for it, as it’s just between Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ and the believer (Note: there are 7+ bible passages that COMMAND baptism for the ceremonial spiritual cleansing/washing away of sins)

6) try to live a life that’s pleasing to Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ by obeying the 10 commandments and Jesus’s New Testament teachings on the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew chapters 5-7 and throughout the rest of the New Testament, etc.

7) spread the gospel to others. For the bible says in Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”

And once we become “spiritually reborn again” by faith and through baptism (the ceremonial cleansing of and washing away of sins) and know what to do and what is pleasing in Jesus Christ’s site and what is NOT pleasing in Jesus Christ’s site, it’s our job to CONSTANTLY do a “sin check prayer” and pray “Lord, if there’s anything holding me back from you, some sin I’m not aware of, please reveal it to me”…..

And once the Lord reveals what we need to repent of, REPENT of that thing/person **IMMEDIATELY**! Don’t wait 2 hours or 2 days. Heck, don’t even wait 2 SECONDS! Because ya never know when your life’s gonna be required of you. You could easily drop dead of a massive/instantaneous heart attack before finishing this sentence (even if you’re under 30 years old or younger and in perfectly good health!)

In other words, we never know when or HOW (the manner) in which we are going to die. Death comes to us all. It’s how we live our life for Jesus Christ (or NOT for Jesus Christ) that determines where we will go for ALL ETERNITY.

Remember that near-death experiences PROVES that there’s an afterlife. Also remember that in the “fire that never quenches/eternal condemnation”, there is NO. WAY. OUT. FOREVER.

Jesus Christ gave his very LIFE for us on the cross, so that WE could have a chance to live with him for eternity in Paradise someday and so that WE could be forgiven for all our sins and be made to appear blemish-less in front of the heavenly Father! There is no greater love than that, people! But again, we must fully ACCEPT the free gift of everlasting life and salvation/forgiveness of sins before it can be granted to us. And we must accept it with a PURE & OPEN mind, heart, body and spirit! Which means we can’t just automatically SAY to ourselves “oh…..yeah…..forgiveness of sins……sounds cool to ME, man” and then turn around and live our lives the way WE want to live them…….We must ACKNOWLEDGE in Jesus Christ’s site that we are sinners and that without Jesus Christ, there can BE no salvation for our souls.

Please! I beg of you! If there’s something in your life that needs to be repented of, repent of it IMMEDIATELY!

And if you’re a person that doesn’t yet believe in Jesus Christ or the importance of the bible, then I beg you from the depths of my soul to PLEASE PRAY TO BELIEVE as soon as possible! Your eternal fate, your very own SOUL could depend on it!

It’s a matter between spiritual life and death! And since we NEVER know how or the MANNER in which we are going to die, it’s ever more important to get right with Almighty God/Jesus Christ, A.S.A.P!

The world is in crazy chaous today. Ya never know when the next big natural disaster is gonna strike. You never know when your last hour of life’s gonna be.

Time is of the essence.

Get 100% right with Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ and do so, TODAY! Your very soul depends on it. Amen.
