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

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

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

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

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

Yet another viewer said the following:

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

[[Source: https://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/jesus-is-actually-a-greek-philosopher-new-amazon-documentary-theorizes.html]]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We ARE The Last Generation: Biblical Proof

The End Times have fascinated many a soul since the time of Daniel. When Daniel was shown “visions of the End” (in the Old Testament), he initially had NO IDEA about the meaning of what he was seeing or WHY! In fact, the archangel Gabriel had to come down and explain the meaning of the vision to him.

And just imagine this for a moment, folks. Imagine if you had lived back during the times of Daniel….Imagine you saw this awesome, dreadful vision but you had NO IDEA what that vision MEANT! But yet, you KNEW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that bad things were about to happen, as it pertained to God’s Wrath! Imagine how HEAVY that would weigh upon your HEART and SOUL!

Okay, now fast forward to the times of Jesus & his disciples upon the Earth. Jesus’s disciples, like Daniel, were ALSO highly concerned about the End Times and thought often ABOUT them, apparently. And one day, they came to Jesus privately and asked him what the signs of the “end of the age” would be. And Jesus answered them. This is all recorded in the Book of Matthew 24 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24].

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

It reads as follows:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 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. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

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

Okay, so right off the bat, Jesus told us SEVERAL signs of the End Times in Matthew 24:

THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS:

  • There shall be many “false Christs” (i.e. people falsely claiming to be Jesus/the 2nd coming of Jesus)
  • There shall be wars and RUMORS of wars
  • Nation shall rise against nation; kingdom against kingdom
  • Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes, in diverse places

These 4 above signs (all well under way already, in today’s world) are what Jesus calls “The Beginning of Sorrows”. But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..there’s more:

  • Christians shall be delivered up to be afflicted, and killed
  • Christians shall be hated of all nations for Christ’s name sake
  • Many will be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
  • Many false prophets will arise & deceive MANY
  • Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold
  • And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

Okay, so interestingly enough in Matthew 24, we’ve got 10 signs total that Jesus has given us there in that passage of Matthew 24: 1-14! (Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?) Now…..has there been any actual evidence OF those 10 signs coming to pass already, in today’s world? The resounding answer is ofcourse, YES! Let us examine:

Here are all the signs that we’re living in the Last Days (talked about in more detail), while down below the url, I’ll give summaries of the “proof” of the 10 signs mentioned in Matthew 24:

8.) Many false prophets will arise and deceive MANY. CHECK!

But by “false prophets”, the bible’s not JUST talking about those falsely claiming to be Christ! It’s talking about other people, too……The Pope, Catholic clergy, wayward Christian pastors, liberal college professors, secular scientists, entertainers, authors, wayward Christians, atheists and/or people living in sin (as in, PERPETUAL SIN), etc.

9.) Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. CHECK!

10). And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world unto a witness to all nations; and then the End shall come. [CURRENTLY IN PROCESS!]

I’ve met more than a few foreigners living here in the United States who are of other religions who’ve NEVER heard of Jesus before! (SERIOUSLY!) So apparently, not ALL souls of the world have had a chance to hear about Jesus, yet. But ONCE they do…….THE END WILL COME!!!

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

So there’s much debate on just WHAT generation Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24. From original glance at the biblical text, it would appear that Jesus is talking to his 12 DISCIPLES’ generation! SO the average person would think, “Well, the Earth is still here some 1,985 years later, so I guess Jesus’s word didn’t come true, then!” But to THOSE skeptics that say as such, I say to them all in response “NOT SO FAST!”

Jesus had given his disciples a good 10 SIGNS! (And think about it, that’s ALOT of signs, folks! Alot!) So now lets look at the exact wording that Jesus used in Matthew 24: 34: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till ALL these things be fulfilled“. 

Okay, now exactly WHAT generation is Jesus talking about, there? Does he mean the generation of his own time, his disciples’ time? Or does he mean THE MODERN GENERATION? Lets take a closer look at the very LAST part of Jesus’s statement: “till ALL these things be fulfilled”. What things? The 10 signs!!!!!!! 

Therefore, let me put this differently. THE generation that Jesus is talking about is THE End Times Generation that would see ALL “10 Signs” come to pass……SIMULTANEOUSLY! Or in other words, WE are that LAST generation, folks! WE (humankind) on this Earth have ALREADY lived through the first 9 SIGNS, with the 10th one now BEING IN PROCESS!!!!!!! That’s how WE can know that WE are “The Last Generation” of HUMANKIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which means Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth is EVER. MORE. CLOSER. More closer than what we had EVER initially imagined! Therefore, we must REPENT of our sins! That means to give them up and STOP doing them! STOP doing the things that YOU know in YOUR heart and soul is displeasing to God/Jesus! Time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to DIE! Time to GET RIGHT with Christ! Time to GET OUR HOUSES IN ORDER! 

Jesus had THIS to ask of the Christians that he KNEW would be living on the Earth around the time of his 2nd Return to Earth: “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

I’m gonna repeat that once more so you, dear reader, can MEDITATE on Jesus’s question to “the church”: “……NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?” 

Folks, that’s a question that cuts at the VERY heart & soul!!!! Trust me folks, the bible doesn’t call the Lord’s truth a 2-EDGED SWORD for NOTHING! In fact, Hebrews 4:12 states: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

And folks, that does NOT even included all of the OTHER End Times signs that we’re seeing as well: 

Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased

“Many shall run to and fro” is simply talking about TRAVEL/TRAVELING/TRANSPORT! We have transport ALL OVER THE WORLD right now! And “knowledge shall be increased”. This one’s not hard to figure out, folks! Look at just HOW ADVANCED technology has become, just in the last 5-10 years, ALONE! It is just MIND-BOGGLING! 

Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, AND THINK TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”

For those in the “biblical know”, think back to the time when Obama “mocked” Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7! THIS is what the bible is referring to as it pertains to “mocking the Most High” [God/Jesus].

Also: Think about the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that “legalized” the concept of “gay marriage” all across the 50 states of the U.S.! This what the bible means when it’s talking about “changing TIMES and LAWS”. And in this context, I believe the word “times” COULD possibly mean “culture”, as in “the culture of our time(s)”. Ofcourse, we could also take that literally, as in, the biblical sabbath “law” was CHANGED from Saturday, the 7th day of the week, to Sunday, the FIRST day of the week by Constantine and the Catholic Church during the Council of Nicea! 

2 Timothy 3: 1-5 “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, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”

One does NOT have to look far to see how we, as a society, and as a global world, have become today, character-wise (as a collective whole). Just hop on Youtube, for example. And think. THINK. Where did the concept of “the selfie” come from? Hint: SELF! Worship of SELF! Me, me, me. me, ME! We’re a self-indulged society.

In fact, just do a minor “trolling” of a random person’s Facebook, Youtube or Instragram page, and you’ll see what I mean. The “average person” is all about likes, subscribers, ratings and so on. Plus the TOTAL ARROGANCE that some of the “most famous Youtubers” have is just MIND-BOGGLING, to say the least!

But then I have to ask myself this question: How did WE, as a society, get here? How did we, humanity, get here to this place where now our self-worth (as a whole) seems to be determined by our looks or how many likes/subscribers we have and so on and so forth? But then the answer hits me, as clear as day: These times were “prophesied” long, long ago, before any of us were EVEN BORN! And what Jesus says will come to pass WILL come to pass! MARK MY WORDS!

But again, all one has to do is examine the evidence! Examine the biblical evidence that we’re living in THE LAST DAYS! The evidence of THE LAST DAYS is ALL AROUND US! Yet, many have their heads in the sand! Yes, there’s been earthquakes and natural disasters before. BUT NEVER TO THIS DEGREE (that we’ve now been seeing in the last 5 years or so) AND ***NEVER SIMULTANEOUSLY!***

Also: Lets us ALSO not forget Revelation, chapter 13! [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13]. This chapter talks about a VERY SOON coming one world gov’t comprised of a one world economy, one world religion and one world political system! The head of the one world gov’t will be none other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And the Antichrist WILL PERFORM **FALSE MIRACLES** IN ORDER TO **DECEIVE** THE MASSES! He will make fire come down from heaven in the site of men, etc.! He will require ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants to TAKE A MARK on their right hand or in their foreheads in order to be able to buy and sell! (JESUS SAID WHOMEVER TAKES THE ANTICHRIST’S/”FALSE WORLD MESSIAH”/ONE WORLD GOV’T LEADER’S MARK WILL BE *DAMNED* FOR *ALL* OF ETERNITY! OUCH!) 

And those signs, compared with the Matthew 24 signs, compared with all of the OTHER end times bible signs? Folks, it’s a no brainer! We ARE the Last Generation of the world, Jesus’s 2nd Coming is NEAR and we DO need to repent of all our sins and get saved in the name of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all with ALL my heart! Please don’t say I didn’t warn you! Amen. 

 
 

Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

In a previous post entitled:  “Is Jesus in YOUR Diet?”, I talked about the importance of maintaining a healthy spiritual AND physical diet (while emphasizing the importance of a healthy physical diet). In THIS post, I’m gonna discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy SPIRITUAL diet!

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

“And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” – 1 Corinthians 10: 2-4

 

It’s very important that we spend time reading the WRITTEN Word of God (the bible!) For it is our spiritual nourishment! And without “time in the written word”, our spiritual walk with Christ begins to SUFFER! Why? Because we tend to think during those times & moments: “I don’t NEED to read the bible, I ALREADY know what’s in there!!!!!” and/or “What’s the POINT of reading the bible, I ALREADY know what the BASIC tenets of the faith are, so need I to know ANY MORE?” (OUCH!) 

For some, it can be kind’ve depressing to read about all the wars & battles in the Old Testament (“why so many deaths?”) and/or to read about what happened to Jesus during his consequent “arrest”, “trial” and “execution”. However, it’s important for us these days to READ about all those things and REMEMBER them and remember how GOOD (loving but firm) God is!

The Israelites winning the Old Testament battles were precursors to YOU AND ME (Christians/Messianic Jews/The Lord’s people) winning spiritual battles TODAY against the enemy! And all that stuff that happened to Jesus in the New Testament was PROPHESIED in the Old Testament!

And all those things HAD to happen, in order for Jesus to SHOW US that he is who HE says HE is, and that the written word – the bible – is itself what IT says IT is – the 100% complete written testimony of the Word of God [The Word of God ofcourse being Jesus Christ Almighty/HIMSELF!]

If your bible’s been collecting dust on the bookshelf, NOW’S the time to take it back out, dust it off & began re-reading it! If you’re not sure where to start, the Gospel of John is a good place or the Book of Acts. And if you prefer the Old Testament over the New, you can always start with Genesis, from the VERY beginning! And if you live in a country where bibles are forbidden or hard to come by, you can always PRAY that Jesus will show you dreams & visions about what the bible talks about! 

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7-8

 

I’m gonna tell you guys my own personal experience about what happened to me during all the times in my life when I did NOT read the bible every single day and the long-lasting effects it had on me.

One of the VERY first things I’ve noticed is that it starts out SO SMALL. I’d go to read one or two chapters and would suddenly feel very, very sleepy and couldn’t keep my eyes open. And then, the next day, I’d try to re-read that same passage and would AGAIN start to feel really, really sleepy. “What is the DEAL?”, I thought. “This is much too much to be coincidence! WHAT is going on, here?”

And I kept feeling this IMMENSE sense of guilt; thinking that the problem was ME! In other words, I kept internalizing it, thinking it must be MY fault if “I” kept feeling really, really sleepy while picking up the bible and reading it. And yet, when was the last time I had felt really, really sleepy while reading one of my favorite novels or the like? (Busted!)

So then, I went through this mental checklist of sorts: Am I bored by what I read? No. Did I get enough sleep last night? Probably not. Am I trying to read TOO MUCH of the bible at a time? Maybe”. And yet, NONE of those answers seemed to answer my question 100% satisfactorily as to WHY it kept happening…….

I felt tired, depressed, lethargic, moody. I became more “worldly”, and more concerned with the latest movies, books and TV shows, rather that on what Jesus and scripture said. Ah yes, Jesus……..the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins?

The one who saved me during my N.D.E. around 23 months or age or so and beyond? Sadly, he seemed to be the furthest thing from my mind as I dwelved into the “haven’t read the bible in a quite a long time” club! And then there was the “guilt factor”: “well, I haven’t read the bible in so long, how could Jesus ever forgive me?”

But yet, that’s when I realized something: when we don’t feel like reading the bible (for WHATEVER REASON), there is some HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on by Satan and his demons. But yet, Satan is good at getting us to turn it AGAINST OURSELVES by BLAMING OURSELVES for it, INSTEAD of blaming HIM/his demons for it, where all the blame should rightfully be! For if HE and his demons hadn’t first tempted us AWAY from reading the bible, then we would’ve (theoretically) been able to actually READ the bible without any problems!

Another reason we know it’s HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE is because of modern-day news stories like THIS

1). School told they can’t have “bible class”:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-public-school-bible-class-court-20170423-story.html

2). Teacher says student can’t read bible during “free reading time”:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/05/teacher-tells-student-cant-read-bible-in-my-classroom.html

3). Group wants bible removed from POW/MIA Display, despite YEARS of tradition:

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/04/07/advocacy-group-pushes-remove-bible-pow-mia-display.html

And folks, that’s just a small sample. There’s many, many stories about “removing bibles” or “bible classes” that I don’t have time to get into, right now. Therefore folks, it stands to reason: if there’s such STRONG drive to REMOVE BIBLES from school and public military displays, what makes anyone think that there’s also not a spiritual war happening in your VERY HEART over the bible and its precious contents?

When’s the last time you read ANY part of your bible? Be honest with yourself. It’s probably been awhile, hasn’t it? (And if you live in a country where a bible is not freely available, my heart goes out to you! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will somehow get access to the holy scriptures somehow!) And for those of you who LIVE in a country where a bible is freely available, WHAT ARE  YOU WAITING FOR? 

Folks, mark my words, the bible will someday be officially “outlawed”. There’ll likely come a time in Westernized nations where owning a bible is ILLEGAL……Yup, that’s right. ILLEGAL! (Especially in the New World/One World Gov’t system they’re trying so hard to set up right now!)

So READ your bibles front to back from Genesis to Revelation while you still can! Because you NEVER, EVER know when that “right” will be taken away from you! I’m DEAD SERIOUS on this, folks! Furthermore, if you KNOW what’s in the scriptures and what isn’t, you’re FAR less likely to be DECEIVED by Satan and his “workers” (both demonic and human). 

Many Christians today have time for Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, going to the movies, dinner with friends, Redbox movies, sports games, reading their favorite novels, etc., but yet, they DON’T seem to have the time to read the bible! They tell themselves that it’s too laborious, that it’s too much work, that they just don’t have the time to!” Well folks, what if Jesus were to be standing before one of those folks (myself included) and he told them someday that while he’d “like” to let them into “New Jerusalem”, he “just didn’t have the time to?” OUCH! 

In order for Jesus Christ to someday confess our name before the Heavenly Father and the angels, we must KNOW him personally; we must have a spiritual relationship with him. And the very BEGINNING of the foundation of that relationship comes by FAITH.

And according to Romans 10:17 in the New Testament: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“. In other words, we must READ (& FULLY ABSORB) the written word of God in order to HEAR IT IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS & SPIRITS! 

Sure, we could ALWAYS theoretically have faith in Jesus due to Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Lions Den or Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. But there’s just something about READING about it in print that ENHANCES the experience, as IF we were really there at the time of the great happenings of the bible!

Seeing it in movie form or listening to it on audio-book actually DETRACTS from the experience in a way since those two platforms make it an unemotional, INDIRECT experience. But reading it OURSELVES? That MAKES it a personal, emotional and DIRECT experience, almost as if reading somebody’s personal diary or autobiography of all the events that took place! Now think about this for moment: What makes reading someone’s diary or autobiography more PERSONAL to you? If someone ELSE reads it to you or IF you read it YOURSELF? Think about it, folks! 

Many Christians today based their “bible theology” on FEELINGS & EMOTIONS – what they FEEL to be true or SHOULD be true – other than what’s FACT! And that’s truly sad! For if these folks would read their bibles more often, they’d come to realize just how WRONG they are/were in their “assumptions!”

Imagine if YOU wrote YOUR own autobiography, only to have one your “proclaimed fans” come forth later and say: “No, this is NOT what they mean here……they in fact mean THIS” as IF that person knew you and/or knew your “thoughts”, personally! Wouldn’t you be so offended by that? I know “I” would!!!!!! So it is with God and his holy, written word. It’s “written in stone”, it doesn’t NEED to be interpreted or re-interpreted, as it were. Let the bible speak for itself! 

But going back to the Romans 10:17 passage once more: “”So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.

Some of you may be wondering what “hearing by the word of God” means. Well, Jesus Christ himself IS the Word of God. John 1:1-2 in the New Testament confirms this. Therefore, “hearing BY the word of God” simply means to hear it BY means of Jesus. And to hear it BY Jesus (NOWADAYS) means to hear Jesus speak through the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE!) Capeche? (Note: if you’re lucky enough, you can usually find a King James Bible/KJV bible with words of Jesus IN RED!)

So, for example, if you read the Book of Matthew, Chapters 5-7 in the New Testament (known as Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount”), it’s not hard to “spiritually hear” Jesus’s voice in that sermon, as though you were one of the actual witnesses that were there that day. You can read Jesus’s words in those chapters and just KNOW without a doubt what Jesus was trying to say (and also what he was NOT trying to say!) 

And the book of John tells us exactly who Jesus is and where he came from, no questions asked. Genesis tells us how everything in the universe was made (more or less). In fact, each book of the bible has a “story” behind it. An interesting “tidbit” of God’s autobiography to the world; THE MOST amazing autobiography (and love letter) ever written in ALL of existence to ALL of mankind – those who choose to adhere to its contents, that is! Each “book” serves as a “chapter” of the Almighty’s “autobiography”. Question is, do WE as Christians fully accept it? “I” do! 

I don’t believe as a Judeo-Christian that I can just pick and choose which parts of the bible I believe and want to read and what parts not. What’s the point in that? Because the bible (philosophically speaking) is either ALL TRUE or it’s not, right folks? Yet I submit to you today that EVERY SINGLE WORD of the bible is true! EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! [Note: Don’t get me started though on how the words “alone” and “Easter” were improperly added – more about that in a different post]. 

2 Timothy 3: 16-17All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

In other words, lets say I’ve read the bible front to back (from Genesis to Revelation) a TON of times. But yet, I haven’t read it in a while. Especially the Sermon on the Mount. And lets say I’m holding a slight grudge against someone. Therefore, 2 Timothy 3:16 informs us that NOT ONLY is all scripture given by inspiration of God but that it’s our “golden measuring stick” of righteousness! 

Therefore, only by SCRIPTURE am I (the so-called Christian holding a grudge) able to see the “sin” of my grudge and the “proper” way to deal with it. Make sense, folks? That’s WHY it’s ever-so-important that we read our bibles (even if it’s only a couple chapters at a time) on a continual basis so that WE can know what “sin(s)” we must repent of and the proper, spiritual way to act when we’re living out our lives FOR CHRIST! 

Some Christians have plenty of TIME to read the bible but they get BORED of reading the bible. That, my friend, is yet ANOTHER type of DEMONIC ATTACK happening against that person whenever that happens! Or have you ever read a certain passage and a voice within your mind started to say: “Blah, blah, blah, I already know how this one’s gonna end?” YET ANOTHER type of demonic attack! There’s SO MANY TYPES of demonic attacks against us that Satan uses that most of the time, we’re not even FULLY AWARE of it! 

In fact, not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not, but here’s all the types of “demonic attacks” (by means of “distractions”) that have happened to me most times I’ve tried sitting down and reading the bible:

1). Thoughts about food/eating would pop into my head

2). I’d see an advertisement for something “cool-looking” at the bottom of the web page I was looking at for this blog (as in, end times news headlines)

3). I would start to sometimes feel really, really sleepy or suddenly get a “throbbing headache” out of nowhere

4). I would get chronically indecisive about WHAT part of the bible I wanted to read, which would then make me give up after awhile

5). Somebody would text me or call me on the phone just AS I was getting started on reading a chapter of the bible

6). I’d suddenly worry about my finances (for no conceivable reason) and would frantically log on to my laptop to check my bank statement

7). I’d get tempted to read a novel, instead OR to log online to check my work schedule

8). ETC.

Conclusion? Distractions are SPIRITUALLY DEADLY! Satan has no doubt tried to put as many “distractions” into our paths as human possibly in order to keep us from reading the written word of God (the bible).

But ya know what, folks? The Book of Revelation even offers a SPECIFIC BLESSING to those who read it:

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” – [Revelation 1:3]

But again, I DON’T think that just stands for the Book of Revelation only but for the ENTIRE BIBLE ITSELF! I believe that there is a SPECIFIC BLESSING for each and every Christian when they not only READ the bible but fully absorb its contents into their HEARTS, SOULS, MINDS & SPIRITS!

In fact, Romans 8:13 suggests that we must STARVE the flesh in order to FEED the spirit:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”.

Okay, so what does that even MEAN, some may ask? What does it mean to “feed the spirit?” Just like what does it mean to “starve the flesh?” 

It means that we must put JESUS FIRST in our lives, even BEFORE our need of food, etc. Now, does that mean we should STARVE OURSELVES and stop eating food, altogether? Ofcourse not! It only means that from time to time, we should fast!

To “fast” means to go for a short period WITHOUT food. And during that time, we’re supposed to do nothing BUT pray & read God’s written word (the bible). This time can be anywhere from 6-24 hours, depending on one’s personal preference. Back in ancient biblical times, this is HOW the Prophets of Old obtained “visions”, “wisdom” or “answered prayers” from the Lord! By withholding physical “pleasures” such as food and showing God that God was FIRST in their lives! 

But it’s amazing JUST HOW FAST a person can “stray” from God/Jesus just by not reading their bible in awhile or just happening to be around people that don’t love or honor God! That’s why reading our bibles (and OFTEN) is how we stay CLOSE to Jesus, stay IN THE SPIRITUAL KNOW, become ON-GUARD against any and all SPIRITUAL ATTACKS, etc.! The bible is our MANUAL, our own “instruction book” of righteousness……even part of OUR SPIRITUAL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY – SATAN! (The Bible is FOOD FOR VERY *SOULS!*) 

TRUST ME FOLKS, what the Devil fears THE MOST is you reading your bible – AND PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE! So remember that, folks! Get to reading your bibles again, PUT IT INTO ACTUAL PRACTICE IN YOUR LIVES and spiritually PUNCH Satan where it hurts! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE *CANCER* OF LUKEWARM/LIBERAL CHRISTIANITY: MASSIVE & GROWING…..

I’ve noticed here in the year 2018 that there seems to be a great divide in “the church” today about what should or should NOT be acceptable in “the church” today. Not to mention that there also seems to be a great divide concerning exactly what IS “the church” to begin with. Therefore, let us turn to the bible to find the answer!

The Greek word for church is called “ecclesia”. It means a called out company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible though, it refers to people, not a building! The following are biblical examples of the “ecclesia” talked about in the New Testament. And there are THREE different types. There’s local assemblies, an individual believer, and the grouping of universal believers in Christ. Down below are all the biblical examples of each:

LOCAL ASSEMBLY:

  • Acts 7:37
  • 1 Corinthians 1:2
  • 2 Corinthians 1:1

INDIVIDUAL BELIEVER:

  • 1 Corinthians 15:9
  • Galatians 1:13

UNIVERSAL BELIEVERS:

  • Ephesians 5: 23-27
  • Ephesians 5:30
  • Matthew 16:18 [“And upon this rock I will build my church” simply means upon the foundation of Peter’s FAITH!]

So now that we’re squared away as far as what “the church” IS….biblically speaking, I’d now like to move on to my next point. Today’s culture of Lukewarm/Liberal Christianity. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? Let me give some examples.

  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in gay rights”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s not a sin to be actively gay”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in abortion”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe that the incorporation of the New Age INTO the church is a “good thing”
  • “I’m a Christian but I see nothing wrong with transgenderism”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think it’s OK to party and/or get drunk every weekend”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think everyone goes to heaven when they die”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s OK to do X, Y, Z” (things that are “condemned” in the bible)
  • ETC.

Now…….what is the common word there? “But”. Now what are the FOUR common words that follow those statements? “I”, “Believe”, “See”, and “Think”. Now what do those four common words have in common? Answer: They’re attached to EMOTIONS and they’re actions based off a person’s THOUGHTS & FEELINGS! In other words, they’re taking what they FEEL to be morally right, instead of taking what the bible/Jesus AUTHORITATIVELY DECLARES is morally right!

In other words, many Christians today create this “false Jesus” that they’re comfortable with. “Well, MY Jesus would never condemn people to hell”, says liberal/lukewarm Christianity. No? Well, in that case, what did THAT form of “Jesus” die for, then? Cause “that” Jesus can’t save you! If, for example, active gay sex, etc. wasn’t a sin (according to the “liberal” Christian viewpoint), then what IS? WHO gets to determine what is “sin” and what is “not”, in THAT type of watered down gospel scenario? Does morality then become subjective?

WHO then gets to decide what is sin and what isn’t and how the rules will be enforced for transgressing that “sin?” If morality is “subjective”, then that would mean there’s NO morality and that “anything goes”. Which would then FALSELY suggest that Jesus Christ died on the cross for “nothing”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Many Christian folks have been blinded and bamboozled by Satan, Satan’s demons and the liberal LEFT into thinking they have no right to “rebuke sin”, they have no right to “preach the gospel”, they have no right to “call out false institutions/theology” and also have no right to believe/publicly say that what JESUS calls sin isn’t sin, etc. and it’s really, really sad!

Truth be told, the bible says Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. Therefore, Satan knows he must get in AS MUCH spiritual destruction as possible before his dreadful prophesied ‘END’ comes! So how does he do that, exactly? By COUNTERFEITING and/or watering down the bible and what’s written IN the bible. Let me elaborate. Men and women were created in the image of God, made for natural, traditional marriage (and natural procreation, as well). Therefore, Satan came up with “gay marriage” and “erosion of gender” movements, and “abortion”, etc.

Therefore, when liberal/lukewarm Christians align themselves with those bible-defying, Jesus-defying “agendas”, it’s like a personal spiritual slap in Jesus’s face! Because a man (or woman) can’t serve two masters. Either he will love the one or hate the other or hate the other and love the one.

In other words, a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-abortion viewpoints. A person can’t have Jesus AND pro-“gay marriage” viewpoints. Just like a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-transgender viewpoints. If a person WANTS to have pro-transgender, pro-abortion, and pro-gay marriage viewpoints, they can have those viewpoints all they want to. But they MUST take Jesus Christ OUT of it, cause Jesus Christ wants absolutely nothing to do with those ungodly things!!!!!!  

Folks, truth be told, we will ALL (even ME) stand before the mighty judgement seat of Jesus Christ, someday. And the last thing a “Christian” person would EVER truly want Jesus asking them is WHY they approved of such “unbiblical practices/concepts” while they were still living on the Earth or WHY they didn’t speak out AGAINST “the liberal Christian church’s” approval of such unbiblical practices while they were still living on the Earth, while they still had time!

Many preachers today preach these “feel good” messages. And while it’s good to occasionally build Christians UP and give them some spiritual hope and confidence in themselves, it’s NEVER a good thing to neglect the message of Repentance and Salvation altogether for the sake of “itching ears” and “making everyone happy”.

Sometimes a preacher has to preach it to the people RAW. Why? Because that’s the ONLY way they’re gonna TRULY get the message. Just imagine if Jesus, upon first seeing the money-changers in the Jewish temple, had GENTLY and SOFTLY said that they weren’t supposed to be doing that. The people in the temple probably would’ve laughed at him and the like. However, when He made whips from cords and YELLED at them before/while overthrowing the money changers tables, they immediately KNEW the seriousness of what He was saying!

Therefore, if one TRULY wants to align themselves with what is BIBLICAL and DO AWAY WITH what is NOT biblical (as a Christian who’s seeking to live the way Jesus would have them live, and NOT the way the “world”/secular culture would have them live), keep reading:

NON-BIBLICAL PRACTICES THAT THE WORLD/SECULAR CULTURE TRIES TO TOUT AS  ‘OK’ OR “OK TO DO” THAT THE “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE – SPECIFICALLY HERE IN “SECULAR AMERICA”) HAS NOW SEEMED TO EMBRACE IN 2018:

  • Lying
  • Envying
  • Cussing
  • Cheating
  • Saying the Lord’s Name in Vain
  • Stealing (stealing credit for someone else’s work, etc.)
  • Seeking Revenge/Getting Even
  • Getting Angry With Others When Provoked
  • Getting An Abortion/Being “Pro-Choice”
  • Being in an Active Homosexual Relationship
  • Fighting for Gay/Trans Rights
  • The Erosion of Gender
  • Gluttony
  • Greed
  • Mocking Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Having Sex Outside of Marriage
  • Gossip
  • Treating Santa Claus & The Easter bunny as though they’re a “god” of sorts
  • Chasing after $$$$$$$$$$ and material things
  • Getting “spiritual enlightenment” in things/people other than Jesus Christ (yoga, etc.)
  • Worshiping celebrities/famous people
  • ETC.

Ok, now that we’ve got a clear handle on what’s NOT biblical to do, I’ll now list practices that ARE biblical to do: 

  • Being honest (even if it’s hard)
  • Being happy for others’ successes and NOT envying what belongs to others
  • Controlling one’s language & NOT cussing
  • PRAISING the name of the Lord Jesus, instead of saying His name in vain
  • Not stealing someone else’s work credit/etc.
  • Forgiving others
  • Remaining calm with others when provoked
  • Not getting an abortion (being Pro-Life)
  • Not participating in any form of “Sodomy” and/or “Sodmomous relationship”
  • Not fighting for Trans/LGBT rights but rather speaking out about the TRUE psychological damage that “Pro-Transgender/LGBT policy” is doing to people today, spiritually and otherwise!
  • Fighting for the hetero-normative definition of gender (“male” and “female”)
  • Not over-eating; eating only what is necessary
  • Not being consumed by greed but rather, praying for and focusing on others
  • Preaching Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Saving oneself for marriage
  • Not getting excessively drunk with alcohol or “getting high”
  • Trying your best not to “gossip” about others
  • Keeping one’s body pure & untainted, for the bible says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
  • Celebrating the BIBLICAL holidays that Jesus & his disciples celebrated (Passover, Tabernacles, etc)
  • Worshiping on the TRUE, 7th-day, blessed & sanctified by the Lord Sabbath (Saturday)
  • Chasing after righteousness/the Lord’s approval, instead of man’s approval
  • Receiving spiritual enlightenment in Jesus and Jesus, ONLY!
  • Speaking OUT against idols/worshiping of “celebrities”
  • ETC.

I felt compelled to write this after seeing a “slew” of stories about people who identify themselves as “Christian”, yet, approve/partake in viewpoints/behaviors that are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what TRUE, biblical morality is, in the name of Jesus! And thus, those poor “deceived folks” are CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ! 

Isaiah 5:20-21 puts it THIS way:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 

Isaiah further goes on to say (verses 22-25): “Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” 

Translation? Jesus’s mighty anger is KINDLED (that means, RAGING) against those people who call themselves “Christian”, yet, turn HIS heavenly law & decrees ASIDE for the sake of THEIR personal, emotional/physical “convenience(s)”.

Why? Because they were originally armed with the truth, they KNEW better! Whereas, a totally unsaved person likely did NOT! In other words, Jesus naturally expects unsaved people to “act” like they’re unsaved. However…..He does NOT expect Christian people who identify AS Christian to “act” as though they’re unsaved/act like “the world” (if that makes any sense?)

two jesuses, eight TWO JESUSES, THREE TWO JESUSESS, SIGN 

And last but not least: If the “liberal/lukewarm church” (as a whole) had been around during Jesus’s time on Earth, this illustration is probably what it would look like:

TWO JESUSES, SIX

[Okay, first of all, my apologies to anyone who can’t eat gluten or that’s a vegan. Please know that I’m not personally attacking you in any way, shape or form….I’m only merely using the above illustration as an example of what TODAY’S liberal/lukewarm Christianity might’ve looked like back in ancient, biblical times!]

In other words, the “liberal”/lukewarm church – as a whole – (& unsaved folks) has to constantly find something wrong with God’s law and/or God’s Spiritual Provisions for his people……..to see them as “outdated” and “archaic”. Why? Because it’s the only way they can think of to work around it. Because they want to worship Jesus in their own “liberal”/lukewarm way. Why? So they can do whatever they want

Only, they’re not totally realizing that IN doing/focusing on whatever they want, instead of what Jesus Christ wants for them and their lives, and in worshiping Jesus in the way they want to worship him, instead of worshiping Jesus the way HE wants to be worshiped, they are instead doing what SATAN wants, and IN so doing, are actually DEFYING Jesus Christ by the WAY that they LIVE! (“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – Romans 6:23).

Calling oneself a “Christian” and/or a “child of God” does NOT automatically make one Christian and/or a child of God! (Atleast in Jesus’s eyes, anyways!) For it is ONLY true, joyful obedience to Christ and his heavenly laws, trust & belief in Christ, being spiritually born again IN Christ, and REPENTANCE of sins that makes one a “Christian” and/or “child of God!”

BUT OF GOD

Translation? Only those who are BORN AGAIN in the SPIRIT and RECEIVE HIM (that means, to FULLY SURRENDER THEIR ENTIRE LIVES TO HIM) does HE give the “right” to become a “Christian” and “child of God!”

There’s SO many people out there today who think that ALL humans are “God’s children” or “children of God” but folks, that’s just NOT the case! For ONLY a select “few” are ABLE to get this spiritual distinction. How? By OBEDIENCE to Christ! And obedience to Christ does NOT mean skirting God’s law……not in ANY way, shape or form!

[[[[But again, it isn’t just a spiritually lethargic attitude towards God’s laws that Christians have (a whole) but believe it or not, now even some of the Jews themselves are starting (as a whole) to go liberal/lukewarm, as these two articles illustrate: (which only FURTHER PROVES THAT WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS, FOLKS!)

http://mentalfloss.com/article/91594/theres-wire-above-manhattan-youve-probably-never-noticed and https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-landmark-ruling-high-court-says-tel-aviv-mini-markets-can-open-on-sabbath/]]]]

Therefore, if YOU want the “RIGHT” to be called a “child of God”, then YOU must be born again in the spirit and YOU must fully surrender to Christ and obey Him, IN FULL! Not 3/4th obey him, not PARTIALLY obey him but 100% FULLY OBEY HIM in ALL that you do in this life! And to fully OBEY him means to OBEY HIS LAWS & DECREES!

Love Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind and strength! Give to those in need! Place others’ needs before your own needs! Cause remember: there’s LOTS and LOTS of lost souls out there! THEY should be your primary focus! Remember what YOU and YOUR life was like before YOU were fully saved in the name of Jesus! Imagine what would’ve happened in your life if you had died without Jesus……..imagine what would’ve happened if YOU did not have a Christian believer who prayed for you and preached to you about Jesus…..Imagine where you would be today if YOU had NOT had someone intercede for you on Jesus’s behalf! (Pretty scary and sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks?) 

Many folks think his law stopped at the 10 commandments! However, during the Sermon on the Mount, He EXPOUNDED on the 10 commandments, as well as talked about their original INTENT! (Wow! That’s just mind-blowing, isn’t it, folks!?)

And not only that but commands were added in OTHER places of the bible as well, such as Matthew 28, where Jesus tells his followers to “make disciples of ALL nations”, etc. And in the Old Testament, there were several dietary laws and “biblical holidays” that STILL APPLIED to Jesus and his disciples during the times of the New Testament, as well as to us Christians, TODAY! 

How we do know that? Simple. DURING the Sermon on the Mount (which is considered some of Jesus’s MOST important commandments in the bible), he said in Matthew 5:17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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

 

In other words, ALL won’t be fulfilled till the VERY END of Revelation, chapter 22! Therefore, UNTIL the very end of Revelation, chapter 22, THE OT (Old Testament) LAWS & CELEBRATIONS/HOLIDAYS (minus animal sacrifice, for Jesus Christ BECAME the sacrificial lamb for MANY) STILL APPLY!

And guess what, folks? Did you know that the biblical feasts will STILL APPLY even during the Times of the New Millennial (specifically, the Feast of Tabernacles?) Alot of Christians don’t know that today because “the church today” (as we know it) hasn’t TOLD them the truth! It’s not their fault, entirely. Many were born and raised in “the church”. But what’s sad is that pastors are not preaching the COMPLETE truth to their congregations (as a whole). I used to be one of those Christians that NEVER questioned a pastor’s word for it, that NEVER questioned the history of Christianity, etc. 

But now that I DO know about these things, I feel like it’s my job to shout it from the rooftops (in a metaphorical and spiritual sense) about THE TRUTH about the Roman Catholic Church, Protestantism (“Refined Catholicism”) and the global deception going around today called “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIANITY”….The type of Christianity that does away with God’s law, creates “new traditions” that weren’t OF the bible originally and would seem totally FOREIGN to Jesus and his disciples and/or ancient followers and says “anything goes”.

Well, let me ask you something: IF the perpetual theology/practice of lukewarm/liberal Christianity was enough to cause a person to be sent to HELL and/or THE LAKE OF FIRE someday (that is, if they NEVER fully repented of such lukewarmness before death, etc.), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that those poor folks should be HIGHLY WARNED of their sinful thinking/behavior WAY BEFOREHAND so that they (hopefully) have plenty of time to REPENT (to give up and STOP doing the behaviors that are DISPLEASING to Jesus/God?)

Sadly, this whole entire “Liberal Christian Movement” got started by the Gay Movement, who wanted Christians to FEEL BAD or ASHAMED about their “Christian morality” (i.e. the bible’s view that it’s a sin to be actively gay, etc.) Therefore, they shamed many Christians AWAY from the hard-line authority of the bible with the words “homophobic” and “born this way”. And the Gay Movement has MANY, MANY, MANY Christian people (and even non-Christian people) deceived BECAUSE of it!

And Folks, there is NO “gay gene”. Never has been and never will be. Why do you think that is? Answer: Because they were NOT “born that way”. God doesn’t create “gay people”, only society and social environment/upbringing produces “gay people”. One day, I believe it (the so-called “gay gene) will be “faked” by secular science (but that’s a whole different story!) Back in 1969, the DSM-II listed homosexuality as a “mental disorder”. Only by SEVERE pressure from the left did the DSM folks “change their tune”. Please keep in mind that “transgenderism” is STILL considered a “mental disorder” (under the term “gender dysphoria”). 

It also doesn’t help that many of today’s “liberal Christians” ARE celebrities/famous people. Because lets face it, many Christian “lay people” at large look UP to these folks. And so, if THEY (Christian “celebrities – as a whole) have a “liberal” Christian theology, then it’s going to make many OTHER Christian people out there also have a “liberal” Christian theology…….instead of being likened onto a Berean Christian who’s searching the scriptures DAILY, to see “rather or not these things are so”.

But in fact, sadly, many of these Christian celebrities (as a whole), are very likely DECEIVED by Satan and his demons and I oftentimes pray that Satan will lose his grip on them! (Money & fame can easily turn into two powerful spiritual deceptors and even many non-Christian celebrities fall victim to its trappings!)

As a whole, many liberal Christian celebrities out there today (as a whole) seem to think they can have their cake and eat it, too (spiritually speaking). But in fact, just like I said above, no man (or woman, for that matter) can serve two masters, cause either he will hate the one and love the other or love the other and hate the one.

But let me take this a step further. Are some of these folks even “Christian” to begin with, if they publicly do things that go completely AGAINST the bible? By doing so, they are no doubt CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ and are causing many Christians to fall! And we KNOW from the bible that Jesus Christ is NOT a God of confusion, folks! He is a CONSISTENT God! HE does not change, NOR do his LAWS change! He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore! 

Sadly, some of these folks are even PURPOSELY branding themselves “Christian” and then, subtly doing things that actually go AGAINST the bible in order to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! My soul is VERY, VERY GRIEVED OVER THIS!!!!! Because not only have THEY been deceived by Satan and his demons, but they in turn are ALSO deceiving others. Is there NO END to all this “liberal Christian deception!?” ;-( 

I KNOW firsthand what the Wrath of Jesus is like! Just like I KNOW firsthand what it will likely BE like for all those folks someday that THINK or THOUGHT they were “right” with Jesus during their Earthly lives, only to discover at the very, very last terrifying moment that they were NEVER, EVER “right” with Jesus, ALL ALONG! OUCH! Therefore, that’s the VERY THING I’m trying to prevent with this very here POST (& EVEN THIS WHOLE ENTIRE BLOG, EVEN!) I love each and every single one of you and want ALL of you to be ETERNALLY saved in the name of Jesus! 

In closing, I just want to say this: IT’S NOT THE WILL OF GOD IF IT GOES AGAINST THE (WRITTEN) WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE)/ AND/OR THE WORD OF GOD (JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF!)“. Even I myself find myself somewhat convicted on that one. For example, I had briefly *almost* considered dating a non-Christian most recently.  (Notice the key word here is *almost!*).

So what stopped me dead in my (spiritual) tracks? (Jesus? The Holy Spirit?) asked me the following fateful questions: “Do you remember how the ancient Israelites complained out in the desert, after being delivered from Egypt by my mighty hand? Do you remember how they complained because they didn’t fully TRUST me or have 100% unfaltered faith IN Me? Well…..when YOU withstand MY biblical principles to please another that doesn’t EVEN adhere to me, you’ve now become likened onto a complaining Israelite out in the desert, in my eyes. This is your desert. This is your time of testing. Ah….you didn’t even REALIZE you were being tested, did you? Well, now you do. YOU are being spiritually tested and I pray that now that you KNOW this, that YOU will now be equipped to pass the test. Don’t ever, ever, EVER withstand BIBLICAL principles for a non-Christian, it will end up VERY BADLY!”

But if I HAD gone through with it (dating a non-Christian)? I would’ve been likened onto a “liberal” Christian of the viewpoint of “I’m a Christian BUT I think it’s OK to date a non-Christian”. See how Satan wants to feed off of our weaknesses…….? By putting certain types of “thoughts” into our minds like: “Isn’t that a non-Christian thing to do? To discriminate against someone who isn’t a Christian?” (when it comes to dating). See how the devil rolls, folks? He tries to turn our very own righteousness AGAINST US! “Isn’t that HATEFUL to NOT be accepting of LGBT/Womens’ Reproductive rights?” 

And yes, on the surface, it might not “seem” very “Christian-like” for a Christian to not date a non-Christian. But ya know what, folks? In the end, you’ll be VERY, VERY GLAD that you listened to Jesus, and NOT to the “spiritual voice” of someone who’s NOT Jesus! Why? Because the bible says that we are NOT to be unevenly yoked!!!!!! (Therefore, listen to JESUS, and NOT to fellow man! TRUST ME ON THIS!!!)

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”

– 2 Cortinthians 6:14-17 KJV

But folks, we GOT to remember something, here. WHEN a person speaks AGAINST the written word of God (the bible), (ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE “CHRISTIAN”), they are NOT speaking for Christ but speaking for Satan! That person, IN that moment, is temporarily possessed by Satan and/or a demon! So if you AGREE with the person OR give in to them, you are giving in to SATAN/a demon! That’s a pretty scary, sobering thought, isn’t it, folks?

Therefore, WE MUST BE ON SPIRITUAL GUARD AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!** Don’t ever, ever, EVER let your spiritual guard down or take any “counsel” from someone who is not a Christian or is a liberal/lukewarm Christian, PERIOD! Because the ONLY thing the spirit inside that person wants is YOUR spiritual destruction, so remember that, folks! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Careful Whom Ye Trust

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the person you’d LEAST expect to betray you, betrayed you? How is that? What were the warning signs? How could you not see ahead of time what all the warning signs were? Let us examine….

It all begins with flattery. We think when a person constantly flatters us, that that must automatically mean that they like us. (And there’s actually a difference between flattering and complementing). But what’s underneath the surface of “false flattery?” Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feetIn the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice” – [Proverbs 29: 5-6]

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hatefulThe words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good” – [Psalm 36: 1-3]

“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin” – [Proverbs 26:28]

Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant” – [Psalm 78: 36-37]

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open grave, they flatter with their tongue” [Psalm 5:8-9]

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speakThe Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?” – [Psalm 12: 2-4]

“They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah” – [Psalm 62:4]

“The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords” – [Psalm 55:21]

So in other words, the person who “flatters you” all the time should immediately be made suspect, according to the bible! Why? Because the bible says that their heart is “double speak”. Meaning, they appear to be flattering you on the outside, but on the INSIDE, their heart is full of nothing but deceit!

I’ve had such an experience before, in my life. Someone had kept on flattering me, telling me how much better I was than another whom they disliked. (This should’ve been my FIRST red flag that something was “spiritually amiss”, there!) They kept making me think that they had my best interests in mind, etc. In fact, my own “pride” made me felt somewhat reassured to think that atleast ONE other person (“the flatterer”) had my best interests in mind.

And then, when I least expected it, they had started to flatter ANOTHER person in front of me all the time, while occasionally putting ME down (So goes the saying “Thou take prideth before a fall”). However, that being said, the spiritual equation at play here is that one person keeps getting pitted against another, notice the pattern there, folks? 

Another form of “false flattery” that I’ve learned in my spiritual walk to look out for is (gasp!) “false empathy”. I’ve had more than one case in my life where a spiritual enemy had swooped in, pretended to care about me and then betrayed me when I least expected it. How did they do it? False flattery, packed with FALSE EMPATHY: “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. 

Okay folks, now lets think about that last statement there in SPIRITUAL CONTEXT “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. And what do ya get? That’s pretty much Satan’s argument to Eve in the Garden of Eden, VERBATIM….The viewpoint that God’s being such a “jerk” by making her and Adam “work so hard at righteousness” but that her and Adam deserved the *best things* – i.e. some *relaxation* from having to work so hard at *being good & righteously productive*”, and that only HE (the Devil/unrighteousness itself) could give her/them “the relaxing REST and peace of mind she/they been looking for”. Notice the striking similarity there, folks?

[[Note: It’s really the “relax” part that gives it away. One of the devil’s best-kept lies is that we should just “kick back and relax” all the time in today’s world! But the brutal reality is that the Lord Jesus Christ and his angels never take a “break” from righteousness, so why should WE? Yet, that’s how the Devil tries to get us to effectively get us to “relax” our righteousness in today’s world! “You’ve been working too hard, lately. You need to focus on YOU for awhile!”]]

In fact, Matthew 6:21 puts it THIS way: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. Translation? That simply means that the “things” and “people” they are MOST interested in determines WHERE their “heart is” in life, WHAT their “heart” is currently “focusing on“. So if you’re a Christian and your “flatterer” doesn’t have much of a heart for Jesus, then it’s highly likely that that person also doesn’t have much of a heart for YOU!]] 

And also: when it comes to fellow Christians, just because a person “appears” to have the love of Christ in them does NOT mean that they do!

Remember what 1 John 4:1 says. “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”

Also…..Matthew 7: 15-20 states:Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolvesYe shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”

In other words, a person can “say” that they’re a “Christian” or that they have your best “spiritual” interests at heart, but if their actions aren’t lining up with their words? It may be time to reconsider the situation and reassess rather or not you want that person in your (spiritual) life or not.

We must remember that we’re living in the Last Days. Matthew 24: 12-14 gives a very clear picture of just what TYPE of “Last Days Society” that we’re now currently living in, in 2018 & beyond: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. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”

Please remember that Satan (and his demons) don’t come in at full speed ahead. Rather, they’re more subtle. In Genesis 3:1, part A, it records: “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made”.

Translation? Satan didn’t come out at Eve with full spiritual guns blazing. The bible says he was more subtle. He waited until she was NEAR to the forbidden tree! For what good would it have done if he had tried to come at her when she was far, far away from the forbidden tree (as in an out of site, out of mind type of thing?) Think about it, folks!

That’s what “the false flatterer” did. They waited until they were alone with me before they started to “flatter me” over someone else. (And like I said, this should’ve been my FIRST clue that something was spiritually amiss in my workplace. For “dissensions”…..trying to pit one person against another…. is the very FIRST sign of demonic, spiritual warfare that’s going on!)

And now, not surprisingly, sometime later on, they had nothing but praises for YET ANOTHER…….while trying to make “me” feel small again…..Just goes to show ya. That’s how Satan rolls. He comes in subtly, attempts to gain your trust, and once he feels as though he’s gained your trust, BAM! HE STRIKES! That’s why we must NEVER, EVER (as a born-again Christian) trust a “constant flatterer!” 

But then again, it all goes back to “pride”. We’re human beings. It’s human nature to want to feel loved and accepted by others, right? But at what price, folks? At what price? For if our wanting to feel love and accepted by CERTAIN others causes us to spiritually FALL in our walk with Christ? It’s time to let that person go (as well as the “idea” of that person altogether, go!) Because our “worth” should ONLY be wrapped up in Christ and righteousness and NO OTHER! 

Romans 3:4 states: “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”

Most recently at my job, they also started what I call a “sticker campaign”. Whenever someone does a good job on something, they get a sticker. And then people “pride” themselves on the number of stickers they get and compare themselves to others by how many stickers they get, etc. And then, there’s these workplace “drawings” where a worker wins prizes, etc. See how Satan works, folks? He wants all the employees at my workplace to get all bent out of shape over “stickers” and “prizes”. It’s crazy, really. What are we all, in the 4th grade or something? “Here’s a sticker”. 

Well, I most recently decided to rebel by NOT wearing the “sticker patch”. And what happened? My boss tried to tell me I’d get my department in trouble if I didn’t wear the patch. So there was this “immense pressure” at work for ALL employees to wear their “sticker patch”. This also got me to thinking: “Should we be more concerned with the praises of Jesus/God or the praises of men?”

Once I started caring more about the praises of Jesus, INSTEAD of the praises of men, being forced to wear that “new sticker patch” by management no longer bothered me. Don’t get me wrong though, employee appreciation is a good thing. I just wish it was done in such a way where it didn’t feel like such a “competition” but that’s another post for a different day. 

I’ve also noticed as well that many times, my good, hard work there goes unnoticed by others (though I know THE LORD NOTICES….) and that all my mistakes (which actually aren’t very many) are blown way out of proportion and focused on ALL DAY LONG! Whereas, another coworker could make the same exact types of mistakes, and it’s laughed off like it’s nothing, etc. But again, I’m sure MANY people out there (both Christian AND non-Christian) have experienced similar things at the workplace.  

So what does that tell ya, folks? Satan’s attacking a good majority of humans at their jobs today; left, right and center and wants to make THEM feel small! Well, as true Christians, we should NEVER back down from a spiritual fight! So whatever Satan spews at us at our respective workplaces, I say BRING IT! For 1 John 4:4 proudly proclaims: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD

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: 11-12]

So to draw this all to a close, what all have we learned today, folks? Satan is subtle. He comes in the most LEAST unexpected ways, oftentimes through “false empathy” and “false flattery”. People who flatter us all the time are NOT to be spiritually trusted, according to scripture! And furthermore, our self-worth must come from CHRIST HIMSELF and NOT from man/mankind! And lastly, REJOICE when you are persecuted in ANY type of way for your faith in Christ! For, as Matthew 5:11-12 states: “GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN” 😉 

I hope this has helped somebody today who’s gone through, will soon go through or IS going through the situation of “false flattery” and being betrayed by someone when you LEAST expected it! But trust in Jesus Christ, ALWAYS! No matter what, folks! For JESUS is the ANSWER and the SOLUTION to whatever problem you’re going through right now!

He is the author and creator of ALL life! The maker of the heavens and the universe! He is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help you OVERCOME any and all situations! WITH JESUS CHRIST YOU CAN BE VICTORIOUS, IN ANY AND ALL SITUATIONS, NO MATTER WHAT! 😉

What Does The Bible Say About “The Heart?” Let Us Examine!

There’s many a song or saying today that says, “follow your heart” and/or “let your heart be your guide”. In fact, one of THE MOST POPULAR American pop songs of all time is called “Listen to Your Heart”. But again, if you counted ALL the American songs that sung about “following one’s heart” or that talked about “the heart”, there’d be FAR TOO MANY TO NAME! People also talk about “following their heart” and doing what’s right “in their heart”. And it pretty much goes without saying that what’s right in person A’s heart isn’t always what’s right in person B’s heart & so on and & so forth.

However, the bible has a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT thing to say about “the heart”:

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

– Jeremiah 17:9

But exactly what does the bible mean by this? Let us examine a few more bible passages about the heart to get a much clearer picture, here:

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” – Luke 12:34

In other words, lets say a person has an “obsessive” collection of records, cars, international coins, etc. Or that they’re CONSTANTLY obsessing over food, money, movies/TV shows, etc. Jesus considers that “idolatry”. Because, in a sense, a person is putting their “treasure” (read: their “hope”, “TRUST”, and “livelihood”) in material/fleshly things.

Matthew 6:20-23 states: “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” 

Here, we get a slight variation from the Luke 12:34 passage but goes into MUCH greater detail, with the same message. Here, Jesus is speaking DIRECTLY during His Sermon on the Mount/Oliviet Discourse (New Testament, Matthew, Chapters 5 to 7).

And IN the Matthew 6:20-23 passage, Jesus is saying that it does NO GOOD to put our “hope” and “trust” (and consequently, HEARTS) into/towards fleshly/material things since those things will cause a person to SPIRITUALLY STUMBLE! Not to mention that Jesus ALSO mentions in the Parable of the Good Servant in Matthew 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath“. 

In other words, IF your “treasure” (read: your heart) is set ON fleshly/material things, your heart is FULL of darkness SINCE the LOVE OF fleshly/material things is nothing BUT SPIRITUAL DARKNESS! And so therefore, if that’s pretty much ALL your heart “desires” and “lusts after”, instead of chasing after Jesus/”righteousness”, then HOW GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS, in other words!

Plus Jesus is also saying that those that perpetually AND UNREPENTANTLY “lust” after nothing BUT darkness (fleshly/material things) in their hearts WILL someday RECEIVE the AWARD OF DARKNESS (Eternal separation from God in the LAKE OF FIRE!) Because even what LITTLE righteousness that person has WILL be someday eternally stripped from them! (Wow folks, that’s quite a sobering thought right there!)

“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meBut in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Matthew 15:8-9

THIS particular passage kind’ve makes me think of Christmas & Easter. During BOTH of these days, Christians THINK they’re “honoring the name of Jesus”. Yet, SADLY, BOTH of those holidays are fake/Catholic/Paganized/man-made holidays that are based on ancient, Pagan sex festivals! In other words, those two holidays actually serve to MOCK JESUS by “forcing him to share the day with painted Easter eggs, bunny rabbits, fictional elves, fictional flying reindeer and fictional Santa Claus”. Wow!

“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies” – Matthew 15:19

In other words, sin starts **IN THE HEART!** Married people having affairs claim they are just “following their heart“. Sexually-perverted sodomites say they shouldn’t be judged “for what’s in their heart“. Genesis 6:5 in the Old Testament states: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil, continually“.

[In fact, I’ll even take it a step furtherThe Satanic Bible itself (I’m told), in verse 4:3 says, “Say unto thine own heart, I am my own redeemer”. THAT’S VERY CHILLING, FOLKS!!!!!! But again, should we really be all that surprised? Satan WANTS us to worship our own HEARTS, and to FOLLOW OUR HEARTS, instead of FOLLOWING JESUS/THE BIBLE!]

Okay, now lets go back to the “Listen To Your Heart” song and examine it in much broader detail (from a spiritual standpoint):

Here’s some of the lyrics to the song:

I know there’s something in the wake of your smile.
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yea.
You’ve built a love but that love falls apart.
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark. (Not sure if she’s singing “too” dark or “TO” dark…….Nevertheless, this sounds like something referencing Satan up in heaven, during the time of the fall.)

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you. (Who’s calling? SATAN?)
Listen to your heart…there’s nothing else you can do. (Nothing else you can do? REALLY?)

I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye. (Hear Satan’s propositions before permanently turning him away?)
Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile.
The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea.
They’re swept away and nothing is what it seems,
The feeling of belonging TO your dreams. (This verse says it all. Belonging TO your dreams. Some people sell their souls to Satan in order to “fulfill” their dreams of being famous. So is this verse PROOF of that, folks? Think about it!)

And there are VOICES that want to be heard. (VOICES? As in….DEMONIC SPIRITS? Just what VOICES are we talking about here, folks?)
So much to mention but you can’t find the words.
The sense of magic, the beauty that’s been. (This seems like a clear reference to Satan, here! “The beautiful angel that once was” sort’ve thing…..Plus the word MAGIC really gets me, here……the word MAGIC is never a good thing in the bible, correct?)
When love was wilder than the wind. (Love, according to the bible, is NOT supposed to be “wild” and “unrestrained!)

Okay, so just from looking at the LYRICS, we know that the song has some possible “dark connotations”. That right there ALONE, should make us take pause! This should also encourage us to start critically examining the lyrics to ALL SONGS that we listen to!

But going back to my main point. The BIBLE says the “heart” is EVIL and DESPERATELY WICKED! But the WORLD/POP CULTURE says that the “heart” should be a person’s GUIDE, a person’s EVERYTHING! The WORLD says that a person’s HEART should be “above all else” while the BIBLE says that the heart should be HUMBLED before all else! See, folks? Notice the DIFFERENCE, there?

What’s interesting to note is that in the Old Testament, The Lord God called David “a man after his (God’s) own heart”. In a nutshell, that basically means that the Lord’s PAIN and GRIEVANCES became DAVID’S pain & grievances……In other words, the Lord’s PAIN became ONE with David’s pain, just like the Lord’s joy became one with David’s joy.

In other words, David seemed to be very in-tune with the Lord’s very thoughts & emotions. He even wrote MANY, MANY glorifying Psalms TO and about the Lord. (I myself have only written THREE!) He was considered VERY CLOSE with the Lord and always wanted to do what was pleasing to the Lord.

Yes, David had a couple of sinful shortcomings (but again, don’t we ALL? Romans 3:23 states, “For all have sinned & fallen short of the glory of God”). But once David realized the weight of his sin with Bathsheba (& that of having Uriah killed in battle) through the prophet Nathan, he repented of it IMMEDIATELY! He didn’t hesitate on the repenting part. 

Scholars can’t seem to agree if David wrote the Psalms before or after becoming King. But if I had to take a best spiritual guess, I’d say he likely wrote them before becoming King or shortly thereafter. Because as the Old Testament wears on, and the longer & longer David is King, (if you read between the lines), it kind’ve seemed like his heart kind’ve strayed a LITTLE bit from the Lord (read: when he took the census of his people, when TAKING a “census” was strictly forbidden by the Lord, etc.)

But then again, couldn’t that happen to just about anyone in his position? That sort of thing (being given a SUPER HIGH position in the name of the Lord) likely WOULD go to a person’s head after awhile, (atleast a TINY bit), am I right? So we must all remember that before “casting stones” at King David for his “great sins”. And that even goes for ALL of bible characters as well. Jesus was exactly right when he said in John 8:7bHe that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her (i.e. the woman caught in adultery). 

We’re SO quick to judge biblical characters as well as each other. But we must FIRST remember: We did NOT live back during the times of the bible. Therefore, we have NO IDEA what all those biblical characters went through (BEHIND THE SCENES). Just like we ALSO have NO IDEA what the people around us today are going through (BEHIND THE SCENES).

So now and only now do I have a much clearer understanding of what Jesus meant when he said in Matthew 7:1-3Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”

However, there’s a fine difference between not judging someone and calling out sin/warning someone about sin. Cause truth be told, the “tolerance” movement has gotten us absolutely NOWHERE! In fact, the “tolerance movement” now has American JUSTIFYING sin (think “gay marriage” and “abortion”, for instance). Why do we TOLERATE such spiritual filth in our nation? Answer: Because we (as a society) didn’t want to seem “judgmental” at all. 

So what then, is the difference between the two? Let me give an illustrated example of EACH (both non-judgmental and judgmental, alike):

NON-JUDGMENTAL: “I know that the word homosexual isn’t directly in the bible. However, back then, the biblical word for homosexual was sodomite. Why? Because since two women or two men can’t naturally have sex, they have to have UN-NATURAL sex, which is WHY it’s called sodomy. And there’s over 27+ passages that CONDEMN SODOMY in the Old AND New Testament. I tell you the truth because I love you and don’t want you to be eternally condemned by Jesus, someday. Jesus Christ can set you FREE from a life of sin and sodomy. Romans 3:23 says that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Therefore, nobody’s perfect, not only me. Truth is, EVERYONE needs a Savior, including ME. Furthermore, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation and the ONLY way to Eternal Life”

JUDGMENTAL: “Atleast I’m not as sinful as those ungodly sodomites, that stick it in every which place. Atleast I don’t get drunk in the gay clubs every weekend. Atleast I’m not sodomizing my body in any type of un-natural way. Hahaha, those sodomites are gonna burn in hell/the lake of fire when they die. WHO CARES if unrepentant sodomites are gonna burn in hell/the lake of fire, someday? It’s not MY fault they choose to live that way! hahaha, I’m saved in the name of Jesus, atleast **I** won’t be thrown into hell/the lake of fire someday – it’s all good, who in their RIGHT MIND would choose to live the homosexual lifestyle and/or abort their own child, KNOWING that it’s gonna lead them to hell/the lake of fire someday if they don’t repent – that’s just plain idiocy, etc.”

Do you notice the difference there, folks? One way provides firm, yet gentle biblical truth (AND hope & encouragement) while the other way CONDEMNS and JUDGES without cause. Believe me, there IS a way to warn people about their sin without “judging” them for it, for ONLY Jesus Christ is the judge; The ETERNAL JUDGE! And he’s NOT an eternal judge that someone wants to fall into the hands of, someday (TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!)

But in closing, I just want to say this: GUARD YOUR HEARTS! For like the bible says, the heart is DESPERATELY WICKED. 

However, if we HUMBLE OUR HEARTS (like the bible says), we can make our hearts more “in-tune” with JESUS’S HEART (and will, for that matter).

I hope this post has given you all something to think about and seriously mull over. WHERE IS YOUR HEART TODAY, FOLKS? 

What’s the VERY first thing you think of the morning, and the very LAST thing you think about before you close your eyes for the night and go to sleep? What’s the most PERVASIVE thought of yours DURING the day? What do you think about and wish for THE MOST?

If it’s not Jesus Christ HIMSELF and that of righteousness, then your HEART is NOT RIGHT WITH THE LORD! (And IF that be the case, you need to QUICKLY REPENT and do what King David did in the bible – pray for Jesus to give you a RENEWED HEART AND A RENEWED MIND). David, like Solomon, was very wise and KNEW that only JESUS could change him (for the better!) 

I pray that this post has both informed & enlightened you. And…..“May Jesus Christ give us ALL a renewed heart, a renewed mind and a renewed spirit; A renewal and spiritual revival that can ONLY happen by JESUS and JESUS, ALONE! Amen”.

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“.
