2018 Altar Dedication of 3rd Jewish Temple: Mark of The Beast, Part SIX

So it’s most recently come to my attention that the Jewish Sanhedrin (a tribunal of Jewish rabbis) are prepared to DEDICATE THE ALTAR of the 3RD JEWISH TEMPLE during THIS YEAR’S [2018] HANUKKAH! Not to mention that they ALSO plan to (if I’m understanding this correctly?) “abolish” the U.N. and replace it with an organization that’s centered around “Noahide laws!”

Source: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/117329/un-rejects-bible-noahide-laws-abortions/ which expressly states at the very end of the article: “The Sanhedrin is working with the leaders of several nations to establish a new international body based in Jerusalem on Biblical values that will replace the U.N.! REPLACE the U.N.? Are you KIDDING me? Folks, this has HUGE biblical/prophetic implications…….

Now……for those of you who are wondering: “Just WHAT are “Noahide laws” and just WHAT does that have to do with humanity?”, I’m glad you asked!

The “Noahide laws” are 7 laws or “principles” that are as follows:

1. Do not deny God
2. Do not blaspheme God
3. Do not murder
4. Do not engaged in “illicit” sexual relations
5. Do not steal
6. Do not eat from a live animal
7. Create legal system of justice

Now……just taking a mere “glance” at these 7 laws, most of them don’t seem so bad. HOWEVER……what they’re doing at their very CORE is adding and taking AWAY from the 10 commandments, which is EXPRESSLY forbidden in Revelation 22:18-19! In fact, these laws were “borrowed” from the 10 commandments, (which is Jesus’s ACTUAL LAW for humanity, by the way!)

“Yeah so, WHY is all this so important?”, some might protest. That’s because The Antichrist (the soon-coming one-world government leader) will USE the 3rd JEWISH TEMPLE for worship…….OF HIMSELF! He will also (at some point) demand every man, woman and child take HIS MARK in their right hands or their foreheads in order to be able to buy or sell. All whom REFUSE to take “The Mark” (i.e. born-again Christians, Anarchists, etc.) will be imprisoned, tortured and eventually put to death! (This was all FORETOLD in the bible thousands of years ago!)

And just WHY will those people who refuse his “one world government mark” be killed? Because the Mark is not so much about buying and selling as it’s about WORSHIP……worship of HIM – THE Antichrist – in PLACE OF Jesus Christ (if that makes any sense?) But again, people taking the Mark in their right hands or foreheads won’t be told it’s a Mark about “worship”, they will instead be told it’s an “Economic Mark” (as in, “Well, you’ll need this Mark in order to be able to continue your bank account, etc.”) Scary stuff, isn’t it, folks?

To the Muslims, he will claim to be Allah/the 12th Iman/the Madhi, to Catholics & Christians, he will FALSELY claim that he’s THE Jesus Christ of the bible, to the Mormons, he will claim to be Joseph Smith, to the Hindus, he will claim to be Brahma/Kali/Shiva, to the Native Americans, he will claim that he’s THE “Grandfather Spirit”, to Satanists he will claim that he’s Satan incarnate, to Wiccans he will claim that he’s Gaia/Minoah, and to everyone else on the planet, he will claim that he’s “God” and/or “the god of humanity”.

And here’s where things gets interesting. The bible says in Revelation 13:8 that ALL people (as in, ALL people of the EARTH) that do NOT put their faith, trust, love & obedience into Jesus Christ WILL be deceived by THE ANTICHRIST (the soon-coming if not already so one world government leader who will “appear to be the answer to all of humanity’s problems”).

Folks, he’s not gonna come with a pitch-folk and devil horns. He will “speak smooth words”, appear to know what he’s talking about, appear to be the answer to everyone’s problems, be a person of persuasion, etc. In fact, he will have “charming character”. Most of humanity will think he’s “God”, quite LITERALLY!

And one of THE REASONS he will be so deceptive is BECAUSE he will have THE ABILITY to perform FALSE MIRACLES (such as make fire come down from heaven!) Most of humanity will be enthralled by these “false miracles” and say within their hearts: “Only IF he were God could he do such great, mighty and miraculous things!” [But yet, what most people will NOT realize is that he, The Antichrist (the “god” people worship IN PLACE OF CHRIST) is in deed, A FALSE GOD and A FALSE MESSIAH who’s indwelt by the power of Satan!]

Now that I’ve told you what happens to people who do NOT take the Mark, now I’m going to tell you what ETERNALLY happens to people whom DO take “The Mark!” Revelation 14:11 gives us a pretty clear & “graphic” picture:

“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”.

Translation? If you choose to take The Mark, your life (and finances) might be preserved for time, times and half a time. But your soul will then burn in the LAKE OF FIRE for ETERNITY: forever & ever & ever & ever! Your soul will burn AS you’re being perpetually tormented IN the flames!

And UNLIKE in your living mortal life where you would be burned until you were consumed, in ETERNAL LIFE, things are much, much different. For in the lake of fire, the flesh will “perpetually burn”. PERPETUALLY. Like Revelation 14:11 says, the smoke of a person’s TORMENT will rise up forever and ever! OUCH! Who in their right mind would ever WANT that or would ever even want to “chance” having that? Just saying.

Okay, now back to my main point about the 3RD JEWISH TEMPLE. The Sanhedrin (the Jewish rabbi tribunal) are getting ready to DEDICATE the ALTAR of the temple! And folks, if you know ANYTHING about ancient Jewish history, you’d know that THE ALTAR is THE MOST, if not ONE of THE MOST important parts OF “the Temple”.

Therefore, it stands to reason: if they’re THAT much closer to dedicating the ALTAR of the 3rd temple, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is the Antichrist’s official “I am God” declaration FROM/IN/NEAR the 3rd Temple upon the whole of humanity? And furthermore, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is “The Mark of the Beast” (and/or The Mark of the Antichrist – the one world government leader) gonna be? And further yet still, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is The Abomination OF Desolation gonna be, talked about in the bible?

Therefore, you got TWO choices and Two Choices, ONLY! You can choose to worship Jesus Christ, THE Jesus Christ of the bible, OR you can choose to worship something/someone else IN PLACE OF CHRIST and then later pay the eternal “torment” of a price for it! The choice is up to you! But don’t say I didn’t warn you!

And if I had one last pleading spiritual message to you all, it would be THIS: Give your lives to Christ – the true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ! That’s the ONLY way to ensure that you will NOT be deceived by the FALSE MESSIAH known as “THE ANTICHRIST!” And remember, the true biblical Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation, and the ONLY way to “true” eternal life!

JOHN 3:16 says, “For God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world [humanity], that He [the Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] should not perish [i.e.go to lake of fire] but have everlasting life [life eternal WITH Jesus] 

But again, the thing we must remember about the Jewish people is THIS: BECAUSE the Jews (as a whole) never accepted Jesus Christ as their one and only TRUE Messiah [over 330+ Messianic Prophecies from the Old Testament PROVE that Jesus Christ IS the one and only TRUE Jewish Messiah, as evidenced in the NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT THEREOF – https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/], the Jews are STILL WAITING *FOR* their “Messiah” and thus, they will accept the ANTI-CHRIST as their one and only true “Jewish Messiah”. However, halfway into his “term”, The Anti-Christ will perform the “Abomination of Desolation” (which will likely be sacrificing a PIG in the temple) and the Jews will then KNOW then that the ANTICHRIST is NO MESSIAH and that ONLY Jesus Christ is their Messiah!

And now…….“Okay, very well, so WHY then did the Jews – as a whole – REJECT Jesus Christ as their one and only true Messiah?”, several people may be wondering. But in fact, several passages in the New Testament “hint” at the answer! And the picture, once reading those passages, becomes more clearer. The Jewish rabbis (at the time of Jesus on the Earth) were “in love with” the POWER they held over the Jewish people and/or the Jewish nation (as a whole) and they did NOT want to give that up for what “they” likely considered to be a “mere mortal human man”.

And not only that, but the “Messiah” that THEY were wanting and expecting was a “military revolutionary” who would give them (atleast in THEIR minds, anyway) a MILITARY victory over their enemies. And looking back through ancient Jewish history, I could sort’ve see why they may’ve been looking for a revolutionary…….because many of the great prophets of Old (David, Joshua, Gideon, etc.) were considered “revolutionaries”. So to THEM, it probably made perfect sense that their “Messiah” would ALSO likely be a revolutionary!

However, Jesus was NO mercenary! Instead, Jesus started a SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION! And those Jews who believed in him and obeyed him as the Messiah are today known as “Messianic Jews”. And those Jews who did NOT believe Jesus was God in the the flesh and/or the Messiah are today known as “Orthodox Jews”. [And to be fair, there’s probably a few sects of Judaism today that are “unsure” or “on the fence” about who Jesus is!]

But in fact, let me take it a step further: Orthodox Jews have today a set of religious “writings” known as The Talmud. “So what’s the Talmud?”, some might be wondering. I’m glad you asked! The Talmud is basically a collection of books………rabbinical “footnotes” and “interpretations” of the biblical law and of Jesus himself!

However, human men are “fallible” and they are not 100% righteous like Jesus IS! Therefore, their “interpretations” are ALSO “fallible”. That’s EXACTLY what is meant in Romans 3:4 which says, “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”. And plus let us not also forget Proverbs 3:5-6 which declares, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. 

In other words, don’t just base your biblical knowledge on what you FEEL or THINK, but rather on what Jesus HIMSELF says! Because “feelings” can be deceiving! So in other words, in a nutshell, the Talmud is basically the “thoughts” and “feelings” of the rabbis on what they THINK the laws of God should mean but is NOT the laws of God HIMSELF! If that makes any sense?

Because ONE rabbi might come along and say, “I think this law means THIS” and write that into “Talmudic writings” while YET ANOTHER rabbi could come along and say, “Yeah well, I think this law means THAT” and do the exact SAME! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? If Christians made a “book” such as “pastor ramblings”, that “book” wouldn’t get very far. So I can’t imagine why The Talmud (to most Jews today) is so prominent ABOVE the bible (in THEIR eyes!) The Talmud is actually soul-damning! I mean, it’s ONE thing if a Jew reads it as “an extra, extra biblical text, to be read with a grain of salt” but it’s quite ANOTHER thing to read it AS THOUGH IT WERE SCRIPTURE!

Here is one of Anita’s videos on the subject that may be better at explaining certain aspects of what I’m talking about:

BREAKING! Sanhedrin invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah dedication of altar for THIRD TEMPLE!

We have SO MANY SIGNS that we’re living in the Last Days that it’s not EVEN funny! Just HOW many more signs will certain “stubborn people” NEED in order to see that we’re living in the Last Days? Men dressed as women, reading to CHILDREN in schools AND in public libraries? Parents would’ve been protesting EN MASSE 20 years ago if that were ever to happen! But now, in the year 2018? Most parents don’t even bat an eyelash and WHY is that, do you think? Answer: WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS!!!!!!

But folks, it’s not JUST the altar dedication that’s taking place, in regards to the 3rd Temple. There’s ALSO the looming “peace deal” and OTHER factors such as the “red heifer being born”, all the temple vessels “becoming ready”, etc. All they’re waiting for is the “Green Light” and folks, it’s beginning to look like THE “Green Light” is JUST AROUND THE CORNER, only a few MERE weeks away! WOW! We’re here already, folks! We’re HERE! It won’t be 10, 20 years from now but NOW! So if THAT doesn’t motivate you to get your soul and your “houses” in order, then I don’t know what does! 

Folks, if you’ve been sitting on the fence about Jesus and salvation, SIT ON THE FENCE NO LONGER, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed! We never know when we’re going to die! I hope and PRAY that this blog and all its contents have taught you, encouraged you, enlightened you and given you SEVERAL biblical things to think about, in these here last days! I hope it has prepared you for what’s coming! Just like I hope it has RIPPED the spiritual blinders from your eyes and given you TRUE spiritual enlightenment in Jesus’s name! I’ve wrote passionately about Jesus and the End Times on this blog for a good 7-9 YEARS now and pray that this blog has been a blessing in you and your loved ones lives! I’m honestly not sure how many more days Jesus will give me but as long as I got breath in my lungs, I will CONTINUE to praise Him against all clamor & opposition! 

In conclusion, I just want to kindly remind you all to remember the case of Job (pronounced Yob) in the bible. He lost EVERYTHING in ONE day but instead of cursing God, he decided instead to PRAISE HIM! This is evidenced in Old Testament, Book of Job, Chapter 2, verse 10 which reads: “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips”. 

The back story is that Job’s wife told him he should quote/unquote “curse God and die”. What a TERRIBLE thing to say to one’s husband! OUCH! Yet, Job’s response to her (AND to God, as well as his own personal situation/hardship) is just BEYOND MIRACULOUS! In other words, Job is telling his wife that she is “foolish” for only wanting to receive the “good things” from God but not the “bad things”.

It appears that Job there had some spiritual wisdom that was somewhat similar to David’s or Solomon’s. Job seemed to have realized that “adversity” is a form of “testing” and also that “adversity” and “spiritual testing” is a chance for “spiritual growth” AND is also a “reminder” to us about how God is SOVEREIGN and does as HE wills, not as WE humans will! And yet, WHEN Job STILL praised God, NO MATTER WHAT, even IN adversity, God eventually BLESSED HIM and gave him back 10-fold what he had “lost” DURING the “adversity/spiritual testing!” 

Therefore, my parting words of wisdom to you are THIS: Praise Jesus 24/7, NO MATTER WHAT, OBEY HIM, and GET YOUR HOUSES IN ORDER! For like I’ve said in SEVERAL posts most recently, MARK OF THE BEAST IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, IF NOT PRACTICALLY HERE, ALREADY! SO GET READY, FOLKS! THIS WILL BE ***THE MOST TRYING TIMES OF OUR LLIIVVEESSSS!***

“Heavenly Father, please make me, my loved ones, and ALL readers of this blog (rather subscribers or not) be ready for all that which is to come. Give us all the strength to ENDURE in these Last Days, NO MATTER WHAT! REMOVE all spiritual blinders from our eyes and give us all eyes to see and ears to hear what YOUR spirit has to say to “the church(es) in these Last Days! I say this in Jesus’s name, Amen”. 

 

 

China’s “Social Credit Score”: Coming To A Town Near YOU! (Mark of the Beast, Part FOUR)

Hello all! My last SEVERAL posts have had to do with The Mark of the Beast and/or Artificial Technology! And that’s because we’re ever SO MUCH CLOSER to when the Mark of the Beast and the new “Mark of the Beast SOCIETY” will be unveiled! In fact, it even sends chills up my spine to think about just HOW MUCH CLOSER we are to that time! I pray that myself and ALL OTHERS will be PREPARED for that time for it’ll come here IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE!

Now, for those of you who haven’t yet heard yet or are unaware, things over in China are now “heating up” for The Mark of the Beast “System!” They now have over there in China (I kid you NOT) what’s called a “Social Credit Score!”

Basically, this is not a FINANCIAL Credit Score but a “SOCIAL” Credit Score! Let me explain. The Communist Gov’t of China wants to know just how “loyal” to Communism/The Communist Gov’t that average, everyday Chinese citizens are. And their “Social Credit Score” is based on precisely HOW loyal the are to the Chinese Gov’t! (Folks, is that CREEPY or what!?)

Anyways, the more “loyal” a Chinese citizen is to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism, the more “higher” their “Social Credit Score” is and the more “rights” and “privileges” they have, such as the right to “fly/travel out of the country”, etc.! Can you BELIEVE it, folks? And ofcourse, the “less” loyal a Chinese citizen is “deemed” to be to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism (no wonder HOW well of a “citizen” that person has been up until THIS POINT), the LESS “rights” and “privileges” they have! (IT’S A TOTALLY DRACONIAN SOCIETY, FOLKS!)

What’s ALSO interesting to note about China is that China has now cracked down pretty hard lately on “Christians” and “Christian churches”. [But yet, Christianity is “exploding in secret numbers” in China right now! That’s WHY the Chinese Gov’t is so fearful of Christians/the sheer RISE of number in them!) And the “Social Credit Score” is just a FURTHER way by which to persecute, imprison and ostracize Chinese Christians living in China!

Here, Anita Fuentes of the End Times ministry called “Open Your Eyes People/EMOAF” [not MY ministry, just to specify] gives an EXCELLENT & INFORMATIVE “sermonette” on the matter (and also talks about what’s going on over in India – as it pertains to the Mark of the Beast – China’s next door neighbor, geographic-wise):

 

“ABC News Australia” ALSO did an excellent segment on the subject:

 

Some say that it’s not yet fully implemented, yet. However, all the staggering “signs” are there, already! They got the tech, they got the “know how”. They’ve probably even ALREADY have got all the “logistics algorithms” (i.e. A.I. computer programming) into place. The ONLY thing they’re waiting on (I imagine) is THE GREEN LIGHT! (The Green Light ofcourse being THE “Green Light” that THE ANTICHRIST gives them!)

Lets face it, folks. The elite of EVERY world country very likely ALREADY gots “The Mark of the Beast” System up and ready to go. Yet, they are ALL waiting on ONE thing – THE GREEN LIGHT BY THE ANTICHRIST! Because UNTIL that Green Light is given, they have NO POWER OR AUTHORITY to act before HIS “OK!” (And indirectly – ironically enough – by waiting on The “Antichrist’s” Green Light, they’re actually also indirectly waiting on God’s Green Light, as well!)

You see, the Antichrist can’t really do anything outside of Satan’s will just like Satan can’t do anything outside of God’s will! (Note: please read “The Book of Job” in the Old Testament for more information, if you want or need to get a much richer understanding of God’s power vs. Satan’s “limited power!”)

China (and India) are no doubt some of the leaders in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (and especially when it comes to *unleashing it* on their citizens!) China is a Communist country…….it probably started out as a Socialist country…….and then went right on over to Communism……And ironically enough, that’s honestly what many Democrats want to do to the country of America………turn it into a SOCIALIST COUNTRY! Forget personal property rights! Forget individual rights! The Gov’t would then own EVERYTHING! (Pretty scary to think about, isn’t it, folks!)

So why are we now talking about “Democrats” on a “religious God-fearing blog?” Because the Democrats (as a whole) want to turn this American country into China, into Cuba, into Venezuela! And with erosion of property rights and personal rights also go RELIGIOUS RIGHTS! But again, isn’t that what Mark of the Beast and Mark of the Beast SOCIETY is ALL ABOUT? The EROSION of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS and the TOTAL INCREASE BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS OF ALL **GOV’T RIGHTS?**

OFCOURSE all the Ocasio-Cortezs’ and Bernie Sanders’ of the Democrats want Socialism……..THEY are a part of the Gov’t, therefore, THEIR paycheck or individual and/or property rights won’t be affected! But OURS **will**, if Socialism ever truly takes root in this country of America! (That’s why it’s ever so important to VOTE REPUBLICAN on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at the U.S. Mid-term Elections! To make sure that RELIGIOUS LIBERTY REIGNS!)

But going back to the subject of the Antichrist and China’s “Social Credit Score”. Folks, other countries of the world already have THEIR VERSION OF IT! Do you honestly think that YOUR COUNTRY (be it whatever country of the world it might be, outside of China or India) is IMMUNE? HA! Your country (be it whatever country outside of China or India it might be) likely already has its OWN form of “logistic algorithms” (i.e. computer programming) in place! FACEBOOK no doubt plays a HUGE ROLE in all of this! FACEBOOK IS SO DEEPLY ENGRAVED IN A.I. THAT IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY!

And someday soon, my guess is that THOSE in China with a low “Social Credit Score” will NOT be able to access their “Facebook” or ANY FORM OF SOCIAL MEDIA! Welcome to “The New World”, folks! And believe me, what’s happening over in China right now is JUST THE VERY BEGINNING! Jesus is actually showing US, up close and personal, about what the “experience” of The Mark of the Beast society will BE LIKE, since like I’ve said in SEVERAL blog posts of most recently, The Mark of the Beast is JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

Many Christians are in denial today and think that “The Social Credit Score” can’t happen to THEM/their country! But they need to start thinking AGAIN! For what starts off in China WILL SOON SPREAD OUT TO OTHER COUNTRIES! The elite has just started putting everything out in the open and doesn’t even try to hide anything anymore! And the sad thing is that most people – specifically Christians – are STILL unaware!

Now, will ONE country’s version of “The Social Credit Score” be exactly the same as ANOTHER country’s version of it? Only time will tell. But the end results will be exactly the same, regardless: individual and religious rights will be taken away so that “Big Brother” (Gov’t) will GAIN all “rights” over the people!

But folks, we got to start preparing! Because actually LIVING in the “Mark of the Beast Society” will NOT be easy, not by a LONG-SHOT! In fact, it will likely be THE MOST DIFFICULT THING IN LIFE THAT YOU OR I HAVE EVER DONE IN THE ENTIRETY OF OUR  EXISTENCE! The PRESSURE to take the Mark of the Beast and/or to try to maintain a “good Social Credit Score” will be SO GREAT! The TEMPTATION will be SO VERY NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TEARS!

In fact, I can picture it NOW, even: Some Christians will be SO TEMPTED to take The Mark of the Beast for a “Good Social Credit Score” and to “get privileges” (such as traveling, buying and selling, etc.) that they’ll just break down and CRY! And then, when they and their children are not able to buy food and they just start “physically starving” (IF they start physically starving, that is), their body will likely become “sickly” and “malnourished”. And it is THEN that the temptation to take he Mark of the Beast will be  THE STRONGEST…….when the person is MOST PHYSICALLY WEAK!

But in fact, THAT will be the time of most “severe spiritual testing!” God wants to see if we’ll have the FAITH to endure till The End in his great, heavenly name, NO MATTER WHAT, while Satan wants to see if he can “make us crack” (i.e. create a permanent crack in the spiritual foundation that we’re supposed to have IN Christ!) Jesus ALSO wants to see if WE will have the faith that HE will provide in OUR critical time of need in the End Times!

Remember when the good Lord gave the Jewish people MANNA FROM HEAVEN during THEIR critical time of need out in the desert, a time of “severe spiritual testing?” What makes you think the good Lord will provide manna from heaven for THEM, during THEIR critical time of need, yet, totally abandon US in OUR critical time of need? Think about it, folks! The Lord NEVER CHANGES! He’s the same yesterday, tomorrow, forever! Therefore, if helped THEM during THEIR critical time of need by giving them food from heaven, the Lord will MOST CERTAINLY help his modern-day people in OUR time of need! HAVE FAITH! 

[In fact, in the following Luke 18:8 passage, Jesus “lamented” about rather or not he’d find “FAITH” on the Earth during the End Times and/or the time right before his 2nd arrival to Earth:I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?]

But folks, that’s what I mean when I say we’ve got to start preparing ourselves! We got to start fasting one day a week and start eating less, in order to prepare our bodies to “need less food”. Also as well: we must prepare ourselves SPIRITUALLY! For there will come a time, MARK MY WORDS, when ALL bibles will be BANNED, all Christian websites and churches (churches that “don’t comply with LGBT and Gov’t”, that is) will be SHUT DOWN, etc.

Do you HONESTLY think that what’s happening over in China can NOT happen here in the U.S. (or any other “Westernized country”, for that matter?) You best think again! It CAN happen and it WILL happen………..eventually! Why? Because the bible SAYS it’ll happen, that’s why!

Has the bible EVER been known to prophesy something that didn’t come true? Were ANY of the Messianic prophecies talked about in the Old Testament unfulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament? Even just ONE? The answer is a resounding NO! There’s also many people who don’t believe in Jesus, despite the fact that Jesus has been PROVEN to be an actual historical person by both non-Christian AND Christian historical accounts! [NOTE: For all you skeptics out there, please read the book entitled “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised of all the actual evidence for Jesus out there – even “secular evidence”].

But going back to both of the “segments” talking about the “Social Credit Score”. Both commentators have noted several things about it:

  • A “good score” = “rights” and “privileges”
  • A “bad score” = “rights” and “privileges” taken away
  • A “bad score” = PUNISHMENT
  • A “good score” = SACRIFICE/EROSION OF INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS IN ORDER TO “GET” A GOOD SCORE
  • Your “score” is determined by several PERSONAL factors (the way you walk on a public street, your eating/shopping habits, your social media behavior, minor traffic infractions, etc.)
  • Your “score” is determined by how much of a “puppet” for the Gov’t at large that you’re willing to be
  • The more “sacrifices” you make for the Gov’t at large, the better your “score” is
  • ONLY Conservatives/Christians get a “bad score”
  • Your “freedom” under the Social Credit System is a FALSE FREEDOM
  • Under the “Social Credit Score” system, you’re CONSTANTLY BEING MONITORED (even IF you have a “good Social credit score”

Sounds like a “paradise utopia”, doesn’t it, folks? You give up all your rights and religious freedoms to gain a “false freedom”, only to later realize that the Gov’t at large never cared about your “religious freedom” or about YOU at all? But by the time you realize it, it’s already too late! My, my, that just sounds like “paradise”, doesn’t it, folks? {Note: Please note my sarcasm, there!}

But yet, my question is THIS: Just how much closer ARE WE to getting our OWN version of The “Social Credit Score” here in America? What, you think that JUST BECAUSE Donald J. Trump’s president here, that that sort of thing can’t happen over here in America? You are sadly mistaken! Sure, Trump can somewhat try to “delay” the elite’s ungodly agenda, but he can’t ultimately thwart it! For the bible says that the Antichrist WILL succeed in his ungodly agenda towards all mankind! Even if he must take it by force! 

But again, just WHAT would the “Social Credit Score” look like in America? Here are some possible scenarios (provided it was anything similar to China’s version):

  • You would be judged/scored on what sorts of products you bought or didn’t buy on Amazon
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you owned (and used) an Amazon Alexa
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you had (and/or used) a Facebook or other form of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on the types of things you said (or didn’t say) on Facebook or other forms of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on just how “loyal” to the American Gov’t you were
  • All Conservatives/Christians would likely be given a “Bad Score” and deemed some sort of “threat” to the Gov’t
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you went with “the liberal narrative” or not
  • You would be CONSTANTLY MONITORED EVERY SINGLE PLACE YOU GO – RATHER AT HOME, WORK OR BEYOND (no matter WHAT your score was, but EVEN more so if you had a “Bad Score!”) 
  • ETC. 

And folks, that might not seem “too bad” NOW……..but once the FULL REALITY of that all set in, I think alot of folks would find it rather DRACONIAN! But again, it all goes back to preparedness. Just how PREPARED are you to deal with a system like THAT? 

Here is a short checklist:

  1. If the Mark of the Beast and/or Social Credit Score happened TOMORROW, would I be prepared to deal with it? Why or why not? 
  2. If I wouldn’t be prepared for it, what steps must I take to ENSURE that I’ll be prepared for it, when the times comes?
  3. Am I ready and willing to give my VERY LIFE for Christ (i.e. be tortured, imprisoned and/or murdered for my faith in Christ) if it called for it? If not, why?
  4. If I were to die today, would I know for 100% certain that I’d go to heaven to be with Jesus? If not, why?
  5. If the Mark of the Beast/Social Credit Score thing were to happen tomorrow, is my body physically trained to deal with starvation/very little food if need be? If not, then what steps do I need to take to ensure that it is?
  6. Am I spiritually AND physically ready to “endure till the End” like Jesus commanded all his followers to do? Do I have the TOTAL FAITH OF ENDURANCE IN CHRIST? If not, what MUST I do to get physically and spiritually ready to endure “till the End of human history” and/or until I die in this life (whichever comes first?) 
  7. Do I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul, mind and spirit; with everything that is within me? Do I obey the commandments of God – Old AND New Testaments (i.e. 7th Day Saturday biblical sabbath, biblical holidays, biblical commands) instead of the commandments of man (i.e. Pagan Sabbath, Pagan holidays, “once saved, always saved”, etc.?) If not, WHY? And what must I do in order to change this? 

Though many will no doubt look at China’s “Social Credit Score” system as “no big deal”, it IS a big deal, it’s a VERY BIG DEAL! Why? BECAUSE IT HAS LONG-TERM BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS AND IMPACT, THAT’S WHY

If you’ve not done much research into China’s Social Credit Score, I hope you soon will. Because it is DEFINITELY one of “The Mark of the Beast PRE-CURSORS/Foreshadowing!” And trust me, it’ll ONLY be a better of time before “The Social Credit Score” comes……….TO A TOWN NEAR YOU!

THE LAST (& FINAL) “TEMPTATION” OF MANKIND: (Mark of the Beast, Part ONE)

Mankind has been dealing with “temptation” since the fall of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden!

In Genesis 2:16-17, right AFTER God had created the FIRST MAN (called Adam) and placed him in the Garden of Eden, he gave Adam “the rules”. And ONE of the rules that Adam was ordered to follow was the following:

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt NOT eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely DIE“.

Just a short time after in Genesis 2:21-22, the first WOMAN is created (to be Adam’s wife!)

“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man

So now, at this point, the Lord God has not ONLY a HUMAN MAN living in the Garden of Eden, but a HUMAN WOMAN, as well! And the Lord God had just given Adam “the rules” a short time before. So now Adam at this time likely relegated the rules to his wife, as well! So Adam’s wife had a CLEAR understanding of the rules of God!

But yet, just a VERY short time later, we read in the beginning of Genesis, chapter 3:

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Now LOOK at those words, folks! They are more or less saying “Hath God said you shall NOT eat of ALL the trees in the Garden?” You can just SENSE the “teasing” and the “taunting” and the “bullying” that’s going on with that statement! That’s really not much different than many liberal arguments TODAY, concerning Jesus and the gospel. “Did God REALLY say…..?” and/or “Does the Bible REALLY say…..?” and/or “Does the Bible REALLY condemn _________ [x, y, z], etc.?”

But on with the story of Genesis, chapter 3. Verses 2-7 state: And the woman said unto the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die’. AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, ‘YE SHALL SURELY NOT DIE: FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL‘”. 

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eatAnd the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons”.

Now, what WAS it about this “forbidden tree” that was SO enticing to Eve, the first woman, that she decided to partake of it? Lets see. She, upon the serpent’s subtle suggestion, saw that it was “good for food”, that it was “pleasant to the eyes” and a “desired tree to make one wise”.

In other words, it fulfilled all the requirements for lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life! That’s EXACTLY what the New Testament is talking about when it says we should walk by FAITH and NOT by sight! Eve, the first woman, was walking by SIGHT!

So that was the VERY FIRST “temptation” of mankind! And in SO MANY WAYS, it’s a FORESHADOWING of what the VERY *LAST* “temptation” of mankind will be like! Cause the temptation (in and of itself) goes something like THIS: “IF you do THIS, THEN you will get/receive *THIS!*

And it’s honestly different than any OTHER temptation that’s out there. Because ONLY the VERY FIRST TEMPTATION of mankind and THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION of mankind promises ETERNAL REWARD(S) (by Satan) for giving IN to it! All OTHER temptations only promise TEMPORAL REWARDS! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

“Temptation” is ALL OVER THE PLACE in today’s world! Many people – specifically many “Christians” – believe that a person can ONLY be tempted when a person is “right with God” but that belief is THOROUGHLY FALSE and let me tell ya WHY:

1). When a non-believing alcoholic feels “tempted” to drink more alcohol, or when a person is tempted to “steal $5 off the ground” when nobody is looking, is THAT just mere “coincidence?” 

2). When a non-believing person feels the sudden urge to “physically fight with someone” that they’re arguing with, is THAT mere “coincidence?”

3). When a non-believing person feels this irresistible “urge” to go out and party all the time AND/OR to mock Christ, mock creationism, mock the bible, is THAT mere “coincidence?”

The answer to all of those questions is NO, NO and NO! And let me explain why! ALL of those 5 scenarios (which is just the tip of the iceberg) illustrate TEMPTATION! Yes! Temptation! And you people thought only CHRISTIAN PEOPLE ever felt “tempted?” HA!

[[[Oddly and ironically enough, there’s a popular song from the 90’s that MOCKS “temptation” ITSELF – AND JESUS….Just examine some of the hellish, Satanic lyrics to see what I mean. The Song is called “Temptation” by Corina and one of the lyric stanzas says the following: Temptation is a part of life. It doesn’t matter if its wrong or right. It makes you do what you love. But the fact that this song alone FULLY ACKNOWLEDGES that “temptation” is a PART of the human experience itself speaks to the FULL PROOF of its very existence, to begin with! So don’t be fooled! Don’t be fooled by thinking that ONLY Christians are “tempted!” That’s B.S.! Let me be frank, here! And listen to the song for any longer than 10 seconds, it becomes VERY spiritually apparent that she’s “breaking up with Jesus” and “falling in league with Satan”, a VERY SICK, TWISTED SONG, INDEED!]]] 

And while I honestly can’t say for 100% sure rather or not the born-again believer in Jesus gets more “tempted” than the average non-believer, what I DO KNOW is that the average, secular, non-believing person (and/or person from another world religion other than Christianity) STILL gets tempted in their life!

They’re not IMMUNE from temptation, folks! FAR from it, actually! Because REALLY: Whom or WHAT is behind the “driving force” that causes THEM to curse Jesus, curse the bible, disregard the NEED for Jesus/salvation, etc.? Answer: DEMONIC SPIRITS! Therefore, NEWSFLASH! ALL HUMANS GET TEMPTED (BY SATAN AND BY DEMONS!!!!!!!!)

And Mark of the Beast (talked about in Revelation 13) is THE MOST DAMNING TEMPTATION OF ALL! Why? Because it’s the LAST TEMPTATION that mankind will ever face! AND THE MOST TEMPTING TEMPTATION OF THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact, EVERY SINGLE temptation that mankind has EVER HAD within the whole ENTIRE HISTORY of mankind (from the beginning of man in Genesis, chapter 2, up until the modern time) has been leading up TO this one and FINAL temptation!

And unlike the VERY FIRST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND, where God STILL loved Adam & Eve and chose to forgive them and “move on” from their sin and STILL have them be “OK” with Him, THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND will offer no such thing! For THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND – if one gives IN to it – will offer NO forgiveness by God/Jesus! NONE!

Now, why is that, do you think? Why is it that THE VERY FIRST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (that mankind gave into) WAS forgiven by God but the VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (IF and WHEN someone gives into it) WON’T be forgiven by God? 

Well, that’s simple. Unlike in the very beginning when mankind had JUST been done being created and were just “spiritual babies”, the mankind generation of 2018 has had over 2,000 years to learn about Jesus and “the laws of God” and to “get it right”. Therefore, the modern day generation of mankind HAS NO EXCUSE!

“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin” – John 15:22

Jesus is making it pretty apparent here that if he had NOT come to Earth and spoken to mankind DIRECTLY about “Sin”, that mankind would technically have no responsibility for “sin”. However, since he DID come to the Earth to speak to mankind about their “sin”, mankind now has NO EXCUSE for their “sin”, as it pertains to the responsibility FOR their “sin!” (If that makes any sense?)

The first sin ever committed by mankind was ofcourse when Eve, the first woman, gave in to the serpent’s demands to eat the “forbidden fruit”. The 2nd temptation was when Eve, the first woman, gave some of the “forbidden fruit” to her husband, Adam (the first man) who ALSO ate of the fruit. And the 3rd temptation of mankind was when Cain, the first baby born into the world, grew up and killed his younger brother, Abel. And so, ever since Cain killed his younger brother, Abel, the world has never been the same!

Over the years, as more and more people populated the Earth, they became eviler and eviler and eviler the more in number they became. By the time that the fallen angels came to to have sex with human women and have children by them, mankind was already “ripe enough” for a full-scale rebellion against God. In MY spiritual opinion, the angels were just waiting for the RIGHT TIME to “infiltrate the human race”. And since women are the child-bearers, they knew they had to get into the women!

Now I’m just picturing your young, average Jewish woman around that time, standing around, talking with her female friends. “Oh my gosh, this totally hot guy from like, not around here noticed me, today!” Her friend goes: “Same here!” Another 3rd friend of hers goes: “Oh my GOSH, same here as well, ladies!” And I can picture these young women PRIDING THEMSELVES on the fact that these so-called “hot guys from not around there” noticed THEM! Oh, aren’t they just the “lucky ones?” Or so they THOUGHT at the time, anyways!

Just like Eve, they weren’t living by FAITH but by SIGHT! And either these young Jewish woman KNEW these “men” “weren’t from around town” and didn’t care……..OR they had NO IDEA that they “weren’t human men!” (There’s extra-biblical Jewish writings out there that suggest that demonic spirits can “shape-shift” into “human forms!”) This is what what was known as “The Days of Noah”.

And these “fallen angels” had children with these (unsuspecting?) human women and their children were GIANTS! (There’s certain passages in the bible which suggest that angels – in general – are of much taller size, compared to humans – more about that later). And these “fallen angels” wanted to PERVERT THE DNA OF THE HUMAN RACE! Why? Because naturally-born men and women are made in the image of God, that’s why! SATAN HATES THE IMAGE OF GOD! DEMONS HATE THE IMAGE OF GOD! Therefore, they wanted to DESTROY the image of God!

The Book of Enoch (which has only most recently in the 1800’s or so been removed from “the bible”), suggests that the fallen angels attempted to PERVERT the natural, human DNA by means of ALTERING THE DNA and doing all sorts of “genetic experiments” (not only on humans but on ANIMALS and all living things as well!) Many people wonder why God wanted or had to destroy EVERYTHING during the global flood of Noah’s times and THAT’S WHY……..to get rid of *ALL* the PERVERTED DNA/PERVERTED THINGS OF LIFE (humans, animals, plants, etc.)

And oddly enough, Jesus tells us in Matthew 24 about “the days of Noah”. Many things of which we’ve ALREADY seen come to pass – please read my post entitled “We ARE The Last Generation – Biblical Proof” for information on the subject at: yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/11/we-are-the-last-generation-biblical-proof/

Matthew 24: verses 37-39 state: But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man beFor 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”

Now ok, what does that MEAN in plain English, some might ask? It means that in Noah’s day, people were EVIL, people’s HEARTS were selfish, people were NOT thinking about “the things of God”…..In fact, in Noah’s Day, they likely didn’t even BELIEVE in the importance of “obeying God!” They wanted to BE God, to become LIKE “gods”; they wanted to follow their “own way”, make “their own rules”, produce their OWN “morality” (or lack, thereof!)

Isaiah 5:20-24 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 sightWoe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 

Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from himTherefore 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”

In other words, mankind (as a whole) became SO EVIL around the times of Noah, that following the “laws of God” was considered “EVIL” and thus, DEFYING the “laws of God” was then considered “good” by most people. However, God’s WRATH was upon all those people of unrighteousness!

However, even still, God still wanted those people to repent and be saved. So he (through his prophet Noah and his family) warned them of their “sin” and their NEED for “repentance”. In fact, God gave them 120 YEARS to do so! But yet, they didn’t do so! So, in the end, God had NO CHOICE but to wipe them from the face of the Earth!

Plus, they didn’t even FULLY REALIZE – while they were still living on the Earth – that God’s patience with them was WEARING THIN! They were SO spiritually blind, SO arrogant! They didn’t KNOW that they only had a certain amount of time to “get right” with Him before it was too late! And by the time most of them realized it, it was already too late!

Today’s society (in 2018 and on) is no different! The “society” during the “Days of Noah” is the SAME EXACT SOCIETY in which we’re living in, TODAY! Are they doing “DNA-editing” with humans and animals, just like they did back in Noah’s time? YES! Are people calling the “laws of God” evil, “outdated” and “archaic”? YES! Are people calling “good” that which is SINFUL/EVIL (i.e. homosexuality, trans/cross-dressing, abortion, etc.)? YES!

Are people of today “wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight?” YES! Are people REWARDING the wicked and PUNISHING the righteous (the people of God) in today’s society? YES! Are people marrying and being “given” in marriage (i.e. “gay marriage”)? YES! Therefore folks, we’ve got nearly ALL the hallmarks of Matthew 24 in the making! If that doesn’t concern you or make you see your NEED for Jesus/Salvation, then I don’t know what does!

But going back to the DNA-editing thing. I just saw this documentary a night or two ago in which this guy said that nearly ALL technology we have today (in 2018), ESPECIALLY at it pertains to DNA-editing, CAME from fallen angels! But again, that didn’t really surprise me. They were doing “DNA-editing” back in Noah’s time just like they’re also doing it in today’s time as well!

In fact, let me take this a step further: “scientists” are now coming up with ANY number of ways to “alter human DNA”. This could be through medicine, vaccines, organ transplants, “gene-therapy”, chimeras, etc. However, receiving the Mark of the Beast will be THE ULTIMATE DNA SWAP!

In other words, NOT ONLY is The Mark of The Beast THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION mankind will ever face but IF a person gives in to that final last temptation of mankind, THEIR DNA WILL BE PERMANENTLY ALTERED FOREVER! That’s part of the reason WHY Jesus will NOT be able to forgive a person once they take The Mark of the Beast – because that person won’t even be “human” anymore but A DEFECTIVE/MONSTROUS/POST-HUMAN/TRANS-HUMANISTIC CREATURE!

Some of the “temptations” that mankind faces NOW – in the month of September 2018 – are pretty bad. Many people across the globe (rather “saved” or “unsaved”) are “tempted” to do the following things:

  • Buy the new Iphone to “be the envy of others”
  • Sell their souls for money, fortune, fame
  • Drink excessive alcohol
  • Get an abortion
  • Watch ungodly TV shows/movies
  • Go to wild parties “in order to be accepted by others”
  • Try mind-altering drugs
  • Get tattoos, piercings
  • Cheat on their spouse/significant other
  • Watch “occultic movies”
  • Play “occultic videogames”
  • Engage in LUST outside of marriage
  • Engage in sodomy/homosexual behavior
  • Fight for “gay/trans rights”
  • Learn/practice Witchcraft/Wicca/Satanism
  • Listen to “occultic music”
  • Watch porn and/or masturbate
  • Engage in witchcraft/Wicca/Satanism
  • Put Jesus Christ on the back burner in order to be “liked by others”
  • ETC.

However, compared to THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION that’ll happen with The Mark of the Beast, all of THOSE above temptations are considered a “cake walk”. However, THE REASON the Mark of the Beast will NOT ONLY by the LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND but also THE MOST TEMPTING TEMPTATION OF MANKIND is that people won’t be able to buy or sell WITHOUT it!!!!!!! And those whom REFUSE to take the Mark of the Beast will NOT ONLY be PROHIBITED from buying and selling but will ALSO be forced to endure SEVERE PERSECUTION, TORCHURE and/or DEATH!

So Christians, if you think you can’t handle a little persecution NOW in your lives, you are NOT gonna be able to handle THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION of Mark of the Beast!!!!!! See folks, that’s the problem, TOO MANY CHRISTIANS WILL GIVE IN and FALSELY THINK THAT JESUS WILL FORGIVE THEM! However, they’re SADLY MISTAKEN! Because like I said, ONCE they take the Mark of the Beast, they’ll go from THIS:

PEOPLE BEFORE MARK OF THE BEAST

Normal, everyday humans BEFORE taking The Mark of the Beast

to THIS: (humans who HAVE taken The Mark of The Beast, thus, becoming a “puppet” to Satan, the world, demons and the Antichrist and thus, in doing so, becoming a “biometric/permanently altered demonically-possessed “synthetic-DNA of a being”):

 

And please note: The picture at the lower right-hand corner illustrates how ALL non-saved people of the Earth (as well as “Christians” who caved in to pressure to TAKE The Mark of the Beast) WILL be spiritually blinded by the The Antichrist, and “amazingly look up to Him AS IF he’s Almighty God!”)

And Note: maybe the guy in the middle of the lower right-hand photo who “doesn’t seem to be going with the program” is one of those Jews or Christians who KNOWS he was wrong in taking The Mark and is HIGHLY DEPRESSED & DISTRAUGHT about it since HE KNOWS NOW THAT THERE’S NO ETERNAL HOPE FOR HIM, AT THIS THEORETICAL POINT IN TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (HOW TRAGIC! The MOST painful realization for him at this point is that HE COULD’VE PREVENTED IT, IF HE HAD JUST HELD OUT AND TRUSTED JESUS AND ***NOT*** TAKEN THE MARK, THE WAY HE DID!!!!!!!!) 

Therefore, the “photo collage” up above is supposed to VISUALLY REPRESENT how a person who takes the Mark of the Beast will:

  1. Be “demonically possessed/PERMANENTLY taken over”
  2. Become a “cyborg/bionic being” with FAKE, SYNTHETIC DNA (In other words, their DNA will be PERMANENTLY altered and they will NO LONGER BE FULLY HUMAN!)
  3. Become a “puppet” of Satan, Antichrist and the “New World Beast Society”
  4. Look to the Antichrist (the “false Christ”) AS IF he is “God!”

It is a “sin” and “temptation”, that, if given into, THERE’S NO COMING BACK FROM! Once you take the Mark, THAT’S IT, YOU’RE DONE, GAME OVER! It will be THE LAST FREE CHOICE you’ll ever make as a human being! And whatever choice you make concerning The Mark of the Beast will affect you FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!

So folks, you’ve REALLY got to ask yourselves: Is 5 minutes of “temporal pleasure” worth an eternity in hell/the lake of fire? And just because someone walks like a lamb, talks like a lamb, says He is a lamb, and acts like a lamb, does that necessarily make him a lamb? In other words, just because someone on the Earth SAYS they’re Jesus, does that automatically make them Jesus?

What does THE BIBLE have to say about Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth? The bible says that Jesus will return IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN! Therefore, any OTHER “Jesus” that comes to the Earth in ANY other type of way is NOT the Jesus of the bible, PURE AND SIMPLE! Now……could the elite somehow perform a “fake rapture” or “fake false return of Jesus” using Project Bluebeam in the sky? Possibly.

Therefore, the ONLY surefire know that it’s the BIBLICAL Jesus in the clouds of heaven (during the Rapture) is if Jesus HIMSELF catches you up in the air to be with Him! Just like the ONLY surefire way to know it’s the BIBLICAL Jesus at his 2nd Return TO the Earth will be if he sets his feet upon the Mount of Olives AND the Mount of Olives IMMEDIATELY SPLITS IN TWO!

Zechariah 14:4 declares: “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south” .

The Mount of Olives is just east of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. On the southeast slope is an old road that leads to the village of Bethany. Therefore, when Jesus returns to the Mount of Olives, there will be a massive earthquake, and, as Zechariah said, THE MOUNTAIN WILL SPLIT IN *TWO!*

Therefore, if you see what appears to be a “Jesus”, someone says to you: Look! There’s Jesus on the Mount of Olives!” or someone that SAYS they’re “Jesus” is standing on the Mount of Olives and there’s NOT an immediate MASSIVE Earthquake that splits the Mount of Olives in TWO, then you just KNOW that you’re dealing with a “False Jesus”, there!

But yet, the bible says that UNLESS our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, WE WILL be deceived by The Antichrist/The “False Christ”/False “god!” Because his lies will be SO powerful, SO CUNNING, that most people will be none the wiser! The bible says he (The Antichrist/The False “god”) will perform “miracles” such as BRING DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN!

So automatically right there, that tells me that the Jews will believe he (the Antichrist) is the returned “Elijah”, and their so-called “Messiah”. That’s both sad & frightening, in full biblical scale! Therefore, in conclusion:

  • The Jews will think the Antichrist is “the returned Elijah”, their “Messiah”.
  • The Christians (the lukewarm ones, anyways) will think he’s “Jesus”.
  • The Muslims will think he’s the 12th Iman or the Madhi (their version of a 21st century “Messiah”).
  • Buddhists will think he’s the 5th Buddha or Maitreya.
  • Hindus will think he’s the reincarnation of Shiva/Kali.
  • Mormons will think he’s some sort of version of a “returned Joseph Smith” (from my understanding).
  • Atheists will believe he’s “God”.
  • Satanists will worship him as “Satan”.
  • Wiccans/Shintoists/Native Americans will worship him as “Cernunnos/Kami/The Grandfather Spirit”.
  • Any other group that I missed will think he’s “God” or A “god”.

But the point I’m trying to make is that MANY PEOPLE will be deceived by this “man”, this one world gov’t leader (The Antichrist) who appears to be “the answer to all of the world’s problems”. And just HOW and WHY will the Antichrist be so compelling to people? Let us review:

  • He will “appear to be a peace-maker”
  • He will do things that no other human man has ever done before (especially in politics – as it pertains to so-called “peace in the Middle East”)
  • He will have the power of persuasion and suggestion
  • He will KNOW how to manipulate people’s emotions & psychology to get what he wants
  • He will be indwelt with the power of Satan (and demons)
  • He will change times and laws
  • He will make fire come down from heaven & other “miracles”
  • He will appear to have the solution for everything, for everyone
  • He will SEVERELY punish all those who oppose him, including torchuring and/or kill them
  • He will make people FEAR HIM
  • He will make people LOVE/ADMIRE HIM
  • He will have a deadly mortal wound – but then be HEALED of that wound (leading many to believe that he’s “Almighty God”).
  • He will SAY he’s God
  • He will SAY he’s Jesus/Allah/Buddha/Maitreya/Satan/Kali/Cernunnos/Kami/The Grandfather Spirit
  • He will set himself up in the Temple of God (many believe this to be the 3rd Jewish Temple)
  • To the “Christians”, he will LOOK like Jesus, TALK like Jesus, ACT like Jesus, DRESS like Jesus and appear to BE Jesus (but he won’t be the Jesus of the bible, folks! Not by a LONG shot!)
  • ETC.

So, if any of that puts some fear into your heart, that’s a GOOD thing, for it means that the Holy Spirit is now vastly “at work” in you!!! “So how can I be sure to NOT be deceived by this man/The Antichrist/The “False Christ”/”False God?” many may ask. And the answer is simple: BECOME SPIRITUALLY BORN-AGAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST SO THAT **YOUR NAME** WILL BE WRITTEN IN JESUS’S HEAVENLY RECORD BOOK CALLED THE “BOOK OF LIFE!” ONLY Jesus Himself FROM HEAVEN can record your name in The Book of Life, **NOBODY ELSE CAN**!

So note: IF you are a Christian or soon to become Christian and you see a “Book of Life” floating around in person or on the internet, and somebody tries to come and tell you that all you have to do is write your name and/or signature in the book, DON’T LISTEN! For that is a FALSE BOOK OF LIFE! A COUNTERFEIT! For ONLY THE HAND OF GOD/JESUS HIMSELF CAN RECORD *YOUR NAME* IN THE BOOK OF LIFE! Got it, folks?

In conclusion, the last and final thing I want to say is that The Mark of the Beast will be THE MOST POWERFUL, MOST TEMPTING temptation that mankind has ever faced! Faced with other, smaller temporal temptations throughout the years, most of us were able to eventually overcome them, somehow. But yet, the “temptation” to take the Mark of the Beast will be THE MOST *POWERFUL* & “DAMNING” TEMPTATION THAT MANKIND HAS EVER FACED! And most people aren’t prepared for it!

{{Note: Here’s a PREVIEW of what “Mark of the Beast” will be like – what’s now happening in China in September of 2018: a “SOCIAL CREDIT SCORE” (which means a “score” based on just how “loyal” to the gov’t/dominant political party line that you’re likely to BE! Scary, folks!}}

Most Christians, quite honestly, can’t even fast (that means, go without food) for a full 24 hours! Therefore, what makes most Christians today think they’re going to be able to withstand the Mark of the Beast if and when they run out of their “food preserves” and are then possibly forced to go without food for DAYS? WEEKS? MONTHS at a time? Many of those “starving Christians” will cave and take the Mark, in order to feed themselves, their pets, their children and their families! And WHEN and IF they do, JESUS WILL DAMN THEM TO HELL/THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR **ALL OF ETERNITY!**

So DO NOT take the Mark, folks, NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, NO MATTER WHO OR WHAT THEY THREATEN YOU WITH! It’s NOT worth it! It’s NOT worth an ETERNITY in hell/the lake of fire OUTSIDE OF THE LOVING PRESENCE OF JESUS, ANGELS, SAINTS AND THE PROPHETS! It is SO not worth it! And not only that but why let Satan win? Why let demons win? Why let Satan and his demons (who NEVER, EVER loved you or respected you, by the way) get all the VICTORY? Afterall, it IS Satan and his demons who are the ones who are “tormenting you” while you’re still living on the Earth! Satan and his demons are to blame for all the “bad things” that happened to you in your life! So why let HIM win? Why, INDEED?

In a weird twist of irony, Satan wants YOU to believe that Jesus doesn’t love you, that YOU are too desperately wicked to be saved and that HE (Satan) loves you! But ya know what, folks? It’s the OPPOSITE WAY AROUND! Satan HATES YOU! Demons HATE YOU! That’s WHY they torment you and tempt you and plague you with anxiety, restlessness, and depression morning, noon and night! On the other hand, JESUS LOVES YOU! The righteous angels of God LOVE YOU! And the “true” agents of heaven (Jesus and his righteous angels) want what’s BEST for you! 

There ARE things that YOU and your family can do, in order to “prepare” for the Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast SYSTEM. First of all, start reading your bibles! Not only READ the scriptures but BELIEVE THEM! And once you start truly BELIEVING THEM, you then need to OBEY THEM and START ACTIVELY APPLYING THEM IN YOUR LIFE! Worship on the 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday), start celebrating in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) Start forgiving those who have hurt you, etc. And furthermore, start “teaching” your body how to FAST (that means, to go for a short period of time – 12 to 24 hours – WITHOUT EATING!) 

Also remember the time of the Israelites out in the desert. Once their “food” from the unleavened bread ran out, guess what? GOD PROVIDED THEM HEAVENLY FOOD CALLED MANNA, FROM HEAVEN! Therefore, what makes you think that God won’t ALSO do something similar for his people during the End Times? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS! Do you REALLY think that Jesus is a type of God that will feed the ANCIENT ISRAELITE’S from heaven during THEIR critical time of need but yet, somehow manage to let his people of the modern-day STARVE in THEIR critical time of need? ME THINKS NOT! 

And when it comes to “teaching” yourself to defy THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (The Mark of the Beast), start “teaching” yourself NOW to “say no” to things that you really want. Example: You got an extra $5 at the grocery store and you really, really, REALLY want that small slice of pizza or small piece of chocolate cake that only costs $4.10 + tax. FORCE YOURSELF TO *NOT* BUY IT, NO MATTER WHAT and no matter HOW tempted you may feel to buy it. And over time, you will find that the more and more you do that (with various temptations in your life) the easier and easier it becomes to “say no” to things. 

Ofcourse, that (and fasting) are just two very small “baby steps” when it comes to teaching yourself to defy temptation in Jesus’s name. Let us not also forget PRAYER! Pray is a VERY EFFECTIVE thing when it comes to defying temptation! When you’re feeling weak, just cry out to Jesus for SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE and TRUST IN HIM 100%, NO HOLDING BACK and he WILL deliver you from whatever temptation or situation you’re facing, MARK MY WORDS! 

Ofcourse, you can always get a head start on the whole defying Antichrist thing if you just pray the following prayer and mean it with all your soul, heart, mind, body, spirit and strength…….with everything that is within the “fiber” of your BEING………

“Jesus, I don’t want to be deceived by the Antichrist. I don’t want to be deceived by Satan and his demons and all their false LIES! Please help me to NOT be deceived by the Antichrist in any way, shape or form! Please show me what is truth and what are lies, in today’s world. Please reveal yourself unto me and reveal the truth of your gospel unto me. Please give me eyes to see and ears to hear what YOU have to say to “the church” in these last days. Please give me a new mind, heart, body, spirit and soul. Please renew my mind in YOU, O Lord! Please give me STRENGTH in you, O Lord! Please give me the power to withstand any temptations the Devil throws my way in these Last Days! And Jesus, when the time comes, please give me the knowledge, the endurance, the fortitude and the emotional/physical/spiritual strength to WITHSTAND the Mark of the Beast, even if it means I must be tortured, imprisoned and/or if it will cost me MY LIFE! I say all this in your great, heavenly name! Amen”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY PEACE & SECURITY……”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MUSIC: A WAR FOR YOUR SOUL!

Have you ever wondered why songs (in general) have a long “introduction” before the lyrics come about? Or also why a certain song and/or songs get stuck in your head all the time? Do you think this is all just mere COINCIDENCE?

Songs (by nature) are/were DESIGNED (by the spirit world) to put the listener into a VERY, VERY DEEP “trance-like meditative state”. The question is, does it put them into a GOOD trance (where they are motivated to worship the Lord Jesus, in spirit and in truth) or does it put them in a BAD trance (where it encourages a person to say/think/do things that go AGAINST the bible?)

I’ve honestly had songs (and/or parts of songs) that were stuck in my head for HOURS, DAYS, and WEEKS! And I kept having to ask myself WHY! And then, when I finally succeeded in getting THAT particular song unstuck out of my head, YET ANOTHER song would get stuck in my head for DAYS on end!

Or worse yet, I sometimes get the case of what I call “SONG FEVER”, where I have to listen to a song over and over and over again…….and if I DON’T listen to the current song on repeat, my mind starts to go stir-crazy! “What is this?”, I aggravatingly think to myself. “This is madness! What the hey!” And I used to think it was just mere “coincidence”. Little did I know it is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE that I was/am experiencing! (A warfare of THE MIND!)

Take tribal African voodoo, for instance. Many “pop songs” are today BASED on voodoo (yes, voodoo!). Lets look through a few examples, here…..

1). “Sympathy for the Devil” by Rolling Stones, 1968

Note: If you slow it down and listen to the beginning, it’s CLEARLY voodoo beats being played in the song, followed by what sounds like “monkey/jungle calls”. The “monkey calls” are probably some hidden thing to “summon demons/demon spirits” and/or to display the “theory of Evolution”, somehow.

And here’s another VERY popular song from the 80’s which has DEFINITE voodoo in it, from start to finish (it even has “Satanic growls” in it!)

2). “Gloria Estefan – Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” – 1987

There’s also THIS song (which clearly has voodoo beats in the background, as well, starting at 0:40 and again at 0:55):

3). “Come & Get It” by Selena Gomez, 2013 or so

In fact, nearly ALL “popular songs” of today have what’s called “Syncopation”. Now………“What’s syncopation?”, some may ask. Answer: it is basically a “disturbance” or “interruption” of the REGULAR, natural flow of rhythm. In other words, it takes “natural rhythm” and makes it UN-NATURAL rhythm (in other words, rhythm’s that off-beat).

Here, Christian Berdahl explains it in a little more detail:

So basically, whenever you get a song stuck in your head, 9 times out of 10, it’s because Satan and demons are behind it! Remember, Satan is BEHIND the “Music & Entertainment Industry”, today! Even most of today’s “CHRISTIAN MUSIC” today is “suspect”. Why? Because it honestly sounds no different than “contemporary” music!

Why? Because it ALSO (as a whole today) uses “Syncopation”, just like all of today’s “worldly music” does. Don’t believe me? Do an experiment. Flip through all the car radio stations. Then go to the Christian music station. Notice anything different? My guess is no. If you didn’t know AHEAD of time that it WAS the Christian station, would you have mistaken it for a “secular” radio station? Be honest with yourself!

Satan is “implied” in the bible to have been “full of music” (BEFORE “the fall from heaven”). Therefore, Satan knows music like his back hand. He knows it inside and out. And so it’s really no wonder THAT he uses “music” as one of his primary weapons to “deceive the masses”.

Okay, now I want you to conduct another “experiment”. Listen to your “favorite song”. How does the song make you FEEL? Does it humble you before the Lord Jesus Christ and make you want to worship him? Or does it make you think of OTHER things, besides Jesus and the bible? Be COMPLETELY honest with yourselves!

And if it’s CHRISTIAN music you’re listening to, does it REALLY encourage you to worship Jesus, in spirit and in truth? Or do all the back-beats, etc. DISTRACT YOU from doing so and make you more focused on the beat, rather than on the message? Be honest with yourself!

Many think that ALL “Christian music” is just fine and dandy. But only most recently have folks come to realize that EVEN “Christian music” is suspect these days (sadly enough). So don’t fool yourselves! Just because a piece of Christian music has the label “Christian” on it does NOT make it “truly Christian”!

For example, many “Christian” female vocalists sing all “sensual”, as though they’re singing to a LOVER, instead of Jesus Christ! (I’m sorry, but it’s true!) And with all the drum beats, back-beats, break-beats, clap-beats, I’d never know most of these songs were a supposedly “Christian” song!

Examples?

1). “Lauren Daigle – First” (This is sung the way a woman would sing to a lover!)

2). “TobyMac – Feel It” (This is sung as though the goal is to be like Bruno Mars!)

ETC….

But then again, what is a TRUE “Christian song”, by definition? Answer: It is one that completely clears the mind (in a GOOD sense), has NO “syncopation” or “background beats/distractions” and ENCOURAGES the Christian listener to worship Jesus (in spirit and in truth):

“Let Them See You” by JJ Weeks Band

Notice the difference there, folks? But again, I’m not personally judging or bashing the two above Christian artists (only Jesus knows their hearts), I’m just saying that the “syncopated-type music” and the *sultry*-sounding lyrics distracts from THE ACTUAL MESSAGE OF SALVATION!

There’s even this whole movement among the Christians today that we (as a whole), must become more “wordly” in our music and in our messages in order to “draw in more people from the world/those that are unsaved”.

HOWEVER, WHEN Christians or “the church” become more “worldly” in their “music” or in their “doings”, they’re actually doing themselves a SERIOUS disservice, as it’s showing the “worldly/unsaved people of the world” the message that: “Hey, Christians are just as worldly as WE are, so I guess there’s no real need to change and repent of our sins!

Even “country music” is not immune from Satan’s grip!

But in fact, let me take this one step further. A popular music artist (who openly worships Satan) has come out and admitted that each of her performances is “a sermon”. Interesting. Therefore, if we can apply her words to ALL secular music these days, and ALL secular music is “individual sermons”, then it most certainly sheds light on the fact that SATAN DESIGNED MUSIC AS ***SPIRITUAL WARFARE!***

Now that’s a tough message for most Christians to grasp (especially those born in the 80s and 90s!) They like their Def Leppard, Bruce Springstein, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Madonna, REO Speedwagon, Mister Mister, Poison, TLC, Metallica, Motley Crue, etc. But rarely do they ever look at all the symbolism (and “spiritual agendas”) BEHIND the music!

Most people might thinking that listening to music is an “innocent thing”. But believe me folks, most music was designed by Satan & his demons for ***HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!!!!!!!***!!! And not only that, but did you know that nearly ALL music artists sell their souls to the Devil for money, fortune & fame? (It’s true!) Don’t believe me? Watch the following “rocumentary”, as it WILL open up your eyes as to what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes of the music industry & L.A./Hollywood!

Now…..am I saying that ALL music is bad? No, ofcourse not. Music has been shown in studies to improve mood, sleep quality, memory, brain activity, etc. However, one should be more mindful from now on about just WHAT type of music they listen to. Because remember that music was designed by Satan for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Remember that Satan USES music to “deceive the masses!” Plus remember that Satan uses music to try to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ!

But one of the BEST ways to “test” a song is to critically examine the LYRICS! (Please also remember that many popular songs of today have lyrics with “hidden meanings!”) Critically examine the lyrics and then ask yourself if it’s something you should be listening to or not. But again, don’t just look at the lyrics, examine the BEAT of the song, as well.

Example: If it’s a “Christian song” but has a “hip hop/break-beat” (and music video) that’s set up like a Bruno Mars song, then that should tell you something right there. Or if it’s a “Christian song” but you’re more focused on the “beat” or “the drums” or the “artist/sultry voice” than the “message”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

After watching both documentaries (both Christian Berdahl’s “The Distraction Dilemna” and “They Sold Their Souls For Rock N’ Roll”), my spiritual eyes were thoroughly opened and so NOW, when I flip through the radio stations and I hear songs that Satan originally intended to deceive people with, I am now armed with the spiritual knowledge of what the “true meanings” of those songs are and I am no longer deceived BY them! And trust me, it’s nothing short of a spiritually liberating feeling in Christ!

So……what types of music SHOULD a true born-again Christian be listening to, you may ask? Well, here’s my personal, spiritual recommendations:

1). Christian music that uplifts your spirit and ENCOURAGES you to worship Jesus in spirit and in truth (In other words, music that has you TRULY focused on the gospel/Jesus and NOT on the voice, the beat or the “rhythm”)

2). Romantic love songs that do NOT glorify fornication or anything else that’s unbiblical

3). Classical or uplifting instrumentals

I myself for years & years had been a long-time fan of Trance/Electronic, etc. music. But after critically examining the fact that if you slow it down, it sounds like a slow, repetitive voodoo beat highly spiritually disturbs me!

In fact, I even said a troubled-in-my-heart prayer to Jesus about it: Jesus, does it displease you that I occasionally listen to Trance/Electronic music, etc? and the answer I seemed to get back from him is THIS: “Does it encourage you to worship me at all? Or does it distract you & make you think of OTHER things, besides ME?”

Okay folks, I felt CONVICTED! And ever since then, I’ve severely limited my Trance/etc. listening! Because NOW, any time I listen to Trance etc. music, I can FEEL Jesus’s spiritual gaze upon me as if to say, “Feeling distracted, are we?” and I just can’t enjoy that type of music anymore! It just feels…….wrong!

Now……we’ve all heard that LUST can be a temptation or that TV/video games/food/drink can be a temptation. But can MUSIC also be a temptation? Answer: ABSOLUTELY! For after being “spiritually convicted” not to listen to Trance, etc. music anymore, I can’t tell ya HOW many times I’ve been “tempted” to listen to it! (And yes, sometimes I’ve given IN to the temptation to listen to it and then felt guilty & ashamed, afterwards!) 

Like, I really have to fight the urge to NOT listen to it, sometimes! It used to come as a natural habit to me…….Turn on the computer, hit the playlist, and give it a whirl! Believe me, it takes ALOT of spiritual discipline to NOT listen to our favorite music that actually spiritually DISTRACTS US and takes us AWAY from the gospel/Jesus Christ! I had to learn that the hard way!

Non-fornicating love songs, classical or uplifting instrumentals might not “seem” like they fully glorify Jesus. However……non-fornicating love songs can remind us of Jesus’s love for his church, while classical or uplifting instrumentals can remind us of the beauty of God’s creation, especially of “musical scales” in general. Many people don’t realize this but “music” is actually composed of mathematical algorithms! And our God (the God of the bible) is no doubt a “mathematical God!”

But that aside, did you know that they did a study on “plant growth” vs. “music”. And not surprisingly enough, when “plants” listened to classical music, they THRIVED! But yet, when plants listened to “death metal”, they withered up and DIED! (And if I remember correctly, BOTH types of music were played at the exact same volume, in the study!)

Therefore, it stands to reason: if “plants” (which are “living”) thrive on classical music, why wouldn’t WE? Studies have shown, for example, that listening to classical music before a test can increase test scores! (It would be interesting to see how plants responded to the JJ Weeks Band or non-fornicating love songs!)

But again, I digress. The moral of the story here is that MUSIC AFFECTS OUR SOULS – either for the positive or the negative. Therefore, it’s up to us to try to only listen to music that UPLIFTS our minds, hearts, bodies & spirits IN Jesus and that does NOT distract us from the gospel in any way, shape or form! I hope this post has given you something to think about, when it comes to music! What you listen to really DOES affect you SPIRITUALLY – rather you realize it or not! So choose wisely! Amen.
