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

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

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

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

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

Yet another viewer said the following:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Lord Is My Joy & My Salvation! ;)

I can think back on the most happiest moment of MY LIFE! It was when I very first met Jesus Christ for the VERY first time in my life (during a NDE) with NO previous knowledge of him! 😉 

Whenever I look nowadays at the pool steps and look at the very place where he once sat (during my NDE), my soul starts to cry emotional tears of joy and I start to get all joyfully emotional! I can’t help it! 

I think of my life BEFORE Yeshua/Jesus Christ came to rescue me from death that day (in more ways than one) and it seems like my life prior to him was pretty pointless. And then I think about my life AFTER meeting Jesus Christ/Yeshua during my near-death experience and how EXCITING and FULFILLING it was, KNOWING that a) there was a God and that b) that same almighty God really, truly cared about me, no matter what! 😉 I can’t even BEGIN to describe what that feeling is like!

I remember the swimming pool water being extremely cold that day, especially at the point in time when he told me to dunk myself under so he could “baptize me in his great, heavenly name!” I remember the feeling of JOY, ELATION, ESTASTICNESS, PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, HEALING, JUBILATION that came over me as soon as I came back up to the surface of the water! It was the best feeling that my soul has EVER experienced in all its existence!

And when I READ the bible, ESPECIALLY the New Testament, I think to myself with amazement and wonder: “Wow! That is THE JESUS that descended down out of heaven to come save me that day! That is THE JESUS who sat me in his lap and giggled when he splashed water on me! That is THE JESUS who warned me of the End Times and his almighty Judgement! That is THE JESUS who told me I had a pure heart and a dizzying intellect!” And I sometimes feel emotionally overwhelmed. I’ve been known to CRY (emotional tears of jubilation and JOY) when I read certain bible passages about him or spoken directly FROM him!

Though at times in my life I’ve gone through some bad things, and/or have felt extremely anxious and depressed, the Lord Jesus Christ has ALWAYS been there to see me through! Plus (get this!), he EVEN has a SENSE OF HUMOR! I kid you not! Let me share with you one of THE MOST FUNNIEST things he’s ever done:

It was Spring Break 2003. Me and my bestfriend Sarah were heading off to Arizona and New Mexico to see the sites. We drove through severe rain in southern Arizona and by the time we hit Northern Arizona, it was severe blizzard-like conditions. Well, to be quite frank, I was getting quite BORED with the “traditional prayer format” of “Dear Lord, I need this or that. Help me please, Amen”.

So I turned to Sarah and said Hey dude, I got an idea! and started giggling. She was wondering what was up. I then help up a “pretend CB radio with my right hand” while driving and said into the pretend CB radio: “Eagle 1, Eagle 1, this is Eagle 2, over. We need some major help down here. We’re caught in a really bad snow storm right now and there’s about 15 cars or more on the side of the road and we don’t want to become one of them, over”.

I sensed nothing in response so far. So again, I help up my pretend CB-radio in my right hand while driving and said: “Eagle 1, eagle 1, can you hear me, over? 10/4, 10/4, We REALLY, REALLY need your help right now, Eagle 1, I’m dead serious! Do you copy, over?” and just then, Sarah and I heard “static crackle” at what sounded like an ACTUAL CB radio come out of the car’s radio system, along with the audible words: Stop worrying, eagle 2! Help’s on the way, LOOK BEHIND YOU – OVER“. Sarah and I just looked at each other and both said at the same time, “Is that an ACTUAL CB radio? How did they hear us? Weird…?”

Not long after that, Sarah and I noticed a small U-haul truck coming up in the right-hand lane off to our right. And then, all of a sudden, Sarah said, “Dude, I think you’re supposed to get behind the U-haul truck with their emergency flashers on”. So I quickly got in the right lane and we got behind the small U-haul truck.

And then…..Sarah started giggling. I said, “what’s so funny?” She said, “look at where they’re from!” Their license plate said “Washington”.  Washington was the 1ST PRESIDENT of the U.S. and the Eagle is our National U.S. symbol, THUS, “Eagle 1”! 😉 Therefore, the Lord NOT ONLY gave us an actual CB radio response IN RESPONSE to my pretend CB-radio prayer, but he also HUMORED us a bit in the ANSWERING of the prayer! 😉 Hehehe

But that’s just one of MANY instances where the Lord displayed his sense of humor to me! Another time the Lord displayed his sense of humor is when I was at work, and I was carrying a small metal pan. And about 30 seconds after my crush walked by, something made me “drop” the pan on the floor (that I had had a VERY firm grip on) and it made a BOOMING LOUD CLANG (which made my crush look back and laugh) and I could FEEL the Lord LAUGHING at me and the embarrassed look on my face! Though I could tell it was “affectionate/teasing” type laughter and not the cruel kind. hahaha 😉 

The Lord has ALSO done things where he silently encouraged me to go talk to this person or that person (who ended up being some of the very best friends of my life!) He’s been there for me through thick and thin! When I am smiling, HE is smiling! And when I am crying, I can sense that HE is crying, too! Which makes sense, considering that the bible says that it’s not his will that ANY should perish! 

Before Jesus came into my life, I was nothing, I was no-one! But IN him, I am everything, I am SOMEONE! Apart from him, I can do NOTHING! But WITH him, I can do ANYTHING! He’s helped me overcome my anxiety on certain things and my soda pop addition, etc. (some things I thought I’d NEVER break free from!) He’s helped to humble me and to correct me when I need correcting! He’s enlightened me and taught me SO many things about what his word IS and what it isn’t!

He’s taken the spiritual blinders off my eyes and has now shown me his full gospel IN FULL! He’s given me strength when I was depressed, downtrodden, anxious, alone or angry! He’s helped me to overcome the most difficult of situations and people! He’s grabbed me out of Satan’s grasp more than once! He will ALWAYS be there to listen to me whenever I have a problem, struggle or question about something! Basically, he’s the best thing that EVER happened to me in this life and apart from him, I WOULD have no reason for being! I am ALIVE today because of HIM! I am forgiven of all my sins because of HIM and the spiritual sacrifice he made for ALL of mankind! And someday, I’ll get to live with him FOREVERMORE! 

The Lord is MY JOY & MY SALVATION! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

So You “Think” You’re Saved…….ARE YOU?

At the very end of the New Testament, The book of REVELATION, CHAPTERS 21-22, gives people a VERY clear picture of what “Eternal Paradise/Heaven/New Millennial Kingdom” will look like.

But MANY PEOPLE, either knowingly or UNKNOWINGLY, don’t seem to be aware of the fact that VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it there. VERY FEW! In fact, today’s society says that “everyone goes to heaven”……

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

In other words, on the day of Judgement, MANY PEOPLE are going to be ETERNALLY SHUNNED BY JESUS and thrown into everlasting fire. But right before they’re thrown into the flames, those people are more or less gonna be like, “What???!!!! I don’t get it! I never killed anyone! I went to church every week! I believed in heaven! I thought EVERYONE went to heaven! Please give me a 2nd chance, Lord! I didn’t know!” But AS the bible states, Jesus CAN NOT and WILL NOT give those people a 2nd chance! For by then, it’ll be too late for all those people! FOR ETERNITY!

The problem with many Christians (and even non-Christians) today is that they don’t truly READ the bible, front to back, so they don’t even know what’s truly in there. They just blindly trust whatever the pastor says, whatever some preacher on TV says, whatever their friend/family member/coworker says…….they don’t ever bother looking it up for themselves, alot of the times, and just make base assumptions on what they THINK the bible preaches! And oftentimes, what they THINK the bible preaches? The bible actually preaches just the OPPOSITE!

For example: Gay marriage. You won’t find a single page in ALL the bible that “condones” such behavior! On the OTHER hand, you WILL find about 28+ passages which CONDEMN that sort of “behavior” and that even call it AN ABOMINATION!

Another example: Many in today’s society will say “We don’t NEED to repent of our sins since Jesus ALREADY died for our sins!” And many people THINK that’s what the bible truly teaches. However, the bible TRULY teaches the OPPOSITE:

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT  – [Matthew 7:13-14]

But not only THAT, Jesus/Yeshua goes EVEN FURTHER in Luke 12:32 [New Testament] when he says, “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. LITTLE FLOCK. LITTLE. He did NOT say “big flock”. He said “little flock” and “little flock” FOR A REASON, FOLKS!

The REASON is that VERY FEW people will TRULY desire to follow Christ in the last days (which we’re currently living in!) Why? Because they’re following Jesus in NAME only, and NOT in deed and action! They go to church every week, but forget Jesus the rest of the week. They listen to a sermon or read a blog post here and there, but haven’t picked up their bible in quite some time! They call themselves “Christian” but then turn around and support ABOMINABLE practices such as homosexuality/homosexual “rights”, divorce, premarital sex, abortion, etc.

Truth be told……SADLY……there’s many, many, MANY Christians out there today as a whole (and even some non-Christians, even) who “think” they’re Saved/will be Saved but are NOT truly saved…….

Remember the Pharisees and Sadducees in Jesus’s time? They thought they were living SO righteous, SO holy…by strictly following Jewish “law” for they thought the “law” would make them righteous…..

But what they didn’t realize is that their “Messiah” (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) was STANDING RIGHT BEFORE THEM and they acknowledged him not! In other words, they thought (in their own minds) that they were “mightier than God” since Jesus was “God in the flesh”.

However, in Isaiah 55:8-9, the Lord is recorded as saying: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LordFor as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”. 

Isaiah 64:6 further goes on to say, But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”.

HERE, this guy says it best at around the 4:50 mark and beyond

To be “Saved” by Yeshua/Jesus Christ is a BEAUTIFUL and WONDERFUL thing! However, it must be a TRUE heart-felt thing! In other words, we must obey Christ, not just out of sheer obligation, but because we WANT to and because we KNOW what HE, Christ, did for us during his crucifixion/resurrection/ascension back up to heaven to be on the right hand-hand throne of God, the Heavenly Father! (AND because HE, Christ, knows what’s best for us! He really, truly DOES folks, MARK MY WORDS!) 

Jesus is recorded as saying in John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my commandments”. In other words, in the Lord Jesus’s eyes, those who TRULY love him as Lord & Savior will OBEY HIM! Not just PARTIALLY (following only PARTS of the bible) but FULLY (following the ENTIRE bible, front to back!) And those who DON’T love him will NOT truly obey him or what he says in the bible! It’s THAT simple, folks!

So I leave you with this question: So you think you’re “Saved”…….but ARE YOU?

If Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today, would He be pleased by how you’re living? Would he find you observing the 7th-day BIBLICAL Saturday Sabbath? Would he find you celebrating the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.?) Would he find you FORSAKING all things “Pagan” (Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc.?)

Would he find you loving your neighbor as yourself and giving to those less fortunate than you? Would he find you TRUSTING in and PRAISING HIM, CONSTANTLY? Would he find you to be of TRUE FAITH (not only in HIM but in his WORDS in the bible?) Would he find you standing up FOR his gospel and PREACHING HIS GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS? In WHAT spiritual condition would he find you?

Matthew 6:21 expressedly states, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”.

In other words, the thing/s you treasure in life, is where you heart is, also! In other words, if you LOVE food, that’s where your heart is…….on food and NOT on Jesus/God Almighty! If you LOVE music/movies/TV shows/celebrities/alcohol/weed/partying, that’s where your heart “truly is”, NOT on the things of God!

Many, many Christians out there THINK they’re going to “heaven”…..THINK they’re living a “righteous and holy life”, THINK that there’s no way that Jesus could ever condemn THEM……..Yet sadly, many of these so-called “Christians” will end up in ETERNAL FLAMES because they are LUKEWARM and don’t TRULY love and OBEY Jesus the way they “claim”……..

Many Christians out there as well, aren’t full-water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (even though the bible specifically commands us to do that in 7+ passages as a further act of obedience to HIM, Almighty God!) It is the “ceremonial washing away of sin”, the public declaration of faith, the receiving of the gift of the Holy Spirit (which is the spirit of truth/spiritual discernment), etc.

Revelation 7:3 says, “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads”. Now, is that talking about full-water immersion baptism? Only the Lord himself could say. Still….the matter remains…….only a very few SELECT FEW will get to experience the full eternal peace of beauty of Revelation, Chapters 21-22, in the New Testament.

Go ahead. Read it. Both Chapters. Revelation 21-22, at the very end of the New Testament. And then try to tell me you don’t want to be there, someday. I bet you can’t.

IF you want that to be your eternity reality someday, than don’t just BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, OBEY HIM! OBEY HIM **FULLY**! [And believe me folks, that goes JUST AS MUCH for me as it does for all of YOU!]

Stop making excuses, people! Stop saying to yourselves, “But I’m tired! I don’t WANT to read the bible right now! I’ll NEVER be good enough to make it to the New Millennial Kingdom! Who cares, anyways? Hardly ANYONE’ll be considered worthy enough to go there anyways, so why even try! Everyone goes to heaven, who cares who’s righteous or not! Jesus will accept me, rather I’m gay or not!”

Just stop it with the excuses, folks! Stop it right now! “Check yourself before you wreck yourself”, as one Christian on Youtube has once said a time or more. Is all that “sin” in your lives worth it? Is 5 minutes of pleasure worth AN ETERNITY IN FLAMES?

Only Jesus Christ/Yeshua himself will be able to determine rather you’re truly “Saved” in his great, heavenly name or not, on the Day of Judgement. But until then, HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE HIM, REPENT OF ALL YOUR SINS, AND CRY OUT TO HIM TO SAVE YOU AND HE WILL SAVE YOU! MARK MY WORDS!

Don’t live a life without Christ, folks! It’s not worth it! 5 minutes of pleasure is NOT worth an eternity in FLAMES! And a life without Christ at the head/center is not a life worth living! For what IS life without Christ? Answer: NOTHING! Why? Because Jesus Christ/God in the flesh is the author and CREATOR of all life! He is LIFE ETERNAL and the GRANTER of everlasting life!

He created the universe and the heavens! Therefore, doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens, and can count the number of hairs on your head and has the keys to hell and death, that it would pay to SERVE HIM? Why serve Satan/pleasure, the father of all lies, the being/things that will take you straight to hell/eternal destruction in the flames? 

On the Day of Judgement, Jesus will likely ask people if all their “unrepentant sin” was worth it. What will most people say? What will YOU say, on that fateful day? 

The choice is up to YOU, folks! But don’t EVER say I never warned you! 

Be DOERS Of The Word And NOT Just Hearers, ONLY!

Believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for ANYONE, here!

We can know every word of scripture there is to know………but if we don’t DIRECTLY APPLY what we know about the Word of God to our LIVES, then the Word of God has NO true *root* in us; in our mind, heart, body or SOUL!

James 1: 19-25 in the New Testament states: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” 

In other words, James 1:19-25’s telling us not just to READ about the Word of God but to APPLY the Word of God DIRECTLY to our lives!

The Written Word of God (The Bible) tells us to do MANY things! For example, we are to:

  • Help those less fortunate than us. When you pass by a homeless person (rather or not they have a sign asking for money/food), do you actively GIVE them a meal or money for some food, for instance?
  • Preach the gospel of Salvation/Jesus Christ to others. Are you actively telling others about Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua and how he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, in some way, shape or form? Be it a blog, ministry, Youtube videos, in person testimony, etc.? 
  • Forgive those who’ve hurt us. Have you forgiven all the people who’ve hurt you? If not, have you PRAYED to be ABLE to forgive them? The bible says that if WE don’t forgive OTHERS for things they’ve done against US, that the Lord also won’t forgive OUR “sins/trespasses” against HIM/ALMIGHTY GOD!
  • Get full-water immersion baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. As soon as we truly BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and his gospel, we should desire to get full-water-immersion baptized in his name and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit! 
  • Have no idols or graven images! Have you gotten rid of that Buddha or Krishna statue? That golden “trophy”? The dream catcher? Carved images? Hung paintings of this or that on the wall? Statues (EVEN IF and *ESPECIALLY IF* they’re *Catholic saints/DEMONS*?) Images of dragons, Darth Vader, Harry Potter characters, etc? 
  • Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ AND his words! Have you TRULY trusted Jesus Christ with your LIFE? Would you TRULY trust Jesus Christ to get you through THE MOST difficult situations in your life such as witnessing to homosexuals, knowing exactly what to do if and when someone points a gun at your head, etc.? And do you trust that the bible is 100% sure and that everything will come to pass as the Lord SAYS it will come to pass?
  • Love our neighbor as ourselves. Have you hated anyone recently? If so, you haven’t been truly applying the written Word of God to your life! 
  • ETC. ETC., YOU GET THE POINT!

And then, Matthew 25: 14-3o, we get the Parable of the Faith Servant Vs. Disobedient Servant and it goes like THIS:

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 

Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 

After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”. 

In this case, “talents” is referring to ancient biblical “gold or silver coins” (as far as I know). But in MY opinion, it can also have double-meaning. In TODAY’S terms, the “talents” COULD be money in SOME cases, but in many others, it can also mean “talents” and “abilities” (IN GENERAL).

The bible says in Matthew 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey“.

So in other words, in the parable, each man was given talents, according to his “ability”. What does “ability” mean in this case? Does it mean workmanship ability in the temporal working world? Or is it talking about workmanship ability in the SPIRITUAL world? Or could it be a combination of BOTH? The bible doesn’t really specify. But there’s no doubt in my mind that if Jesus were to speak this parable to the modern day world of 2015, that he’d be referring to BOTH.

Romans 12: 6-8 states: Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness”. 

Truth be told, we ALL have different talents & abilities. And it’s how we USE those talents and abilities to further the kingdom of God on Earth that matters and that’ll also show WHERE we’ll stand with God/Jesus Christ on the fateful Day of Judgement!

For example, are you good at writing? Start a blog, write a book, produce Facebook notes about Jesus/Salvation, etc. Are you good at photography? Use photography to GLORIFY God’s creation! Are you a good public speaker? Get involved in politics or podcasting/radio or another public forum, in order to glorify the God of the bible! Do you have the power of persuasion? Perhaps street preaching might be good for you.

Are you good at learning and/or speaking foreign languages? Perhaps a missionary trip’s in store for you. Are you good at mathematics? Perhaps the Lord God wants you to use your mathematical abilities to talk about the MATHEMATICAL IMPOSSIBILITY of anything other than Jesus Christ BEING the fulfilled Messiah of Mankind [as over 330+ Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament…….the statistical chances that even ONE man could simultaneously fulfill even just 48 of these, is ASTRONOMICAL BEYOND COMPARE!] 

Are you artistically gifted? You could use your art to GLORIFY God by illustrating Christian books or stories, creating beautiful Christian bible verse cards or creating 3D animated Christian-themed movies or videogames, etc. Are you gifted at singing? You could use your good singing voice to GLORIFY God and to USE your beautiful God-given voice to motivate others to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth! You get the picture……..

But basically, we are use our “spiritual gifts” and “talents” in order to bring HIM glory and in order to FURTHER the Kingdom of God on Earth! And remember that the Kingdom of God on Earth lives WITHIN us! We are to be the EMBODIMENT of that Kingdom! 

Because remember, church is not a place we “go to”, for we “ARE” the church! We, the body/assembly of believers are “the church”! Therefore, we are not “to GO to church”, we are to BE “the church!”

That’s essentially what it means to be a DOER of the written word of God (the  bible) and not just a HEARER, ONLY! 

I hope and pray that ALL who read this will become DOERS of the written Word of God (the bible) and not just hearers, only! Amen. 

 

 

Water Baptism: A Further Mark of Obedience to the Lord!

Many Christians today believe that they DON’T need to be baptized at all. However, according to the bible, there are over 7+ passages which explicitly state that full-water-immersion baptism is COMMENDED, immediately upon first believing in Jesus Christ! Yeah, you heard me right: FULL WATER-IMMERSION BAPTISM, not some “minor sprinkling” upon the forehead!

And though there were/are times/cases where a person is NOT able to get water baptized (the thief on the cross, people who are paralyzed/have no limbs, people who are lying gravely ill in a hospital bed, Syrian Christians who were beheaded before they had a chance to get baptized, etc.), those whom ARE able to get water baptized SHOULD, as it’s a further step of “obedience” to the Lord Jesus!

Let us examine the following bible passages down below:

Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned”

Luke 3: 21-22 “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased”

Mark 1: 9-11 “And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”

Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”

Mark 1: 4-5 “John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins”

Acts 8: 35-38 “Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him”

Romans 6:3-6 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin”

Galatians 3: 27 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ”

1 Peter 3: 21 “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ”

1 Corinthians 12: 13 “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit”

Acts 16: 31-33 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway”

John 1: 29-33 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost”

Matthew 3: 13-17 “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”

Luke 3:16 “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire”

During my Near-Death experience when I was around 2 years of age, Jesus himself made me dunk myself under the water and “get baptized in the spirit of truth”. Therefore, I know in my heart and soul that full-water-immersion baptism is REQUIRED! Jesus AND his disciples did it, as did his followers! The thief on the cross is the ONLY exception that I can think of, since the thief had NO WAY of having a full water immersion baptism. But everyone else that can do a full water immersion baptism is REQUIRED to, upon VERY FIRST believing in Jesus Christ! The disciples and Jesus’s followers got baptized IMMEDIATELY upon believing, WITHOUT DELAY! So should we………….

“A man who knows that he is saved by believing in Christ does not, when he is baptized, lift his baptism into a saving ordinance. In fact, he is the very best protester against that mistake, because he holds that he has no right to be baptized until he is saved.”  ~ Charles Spurgeon

“Baptism separates the tire kickers from the car buyers.”  ~ Max Lucado

“We may never be martyrs but we can die to self, to sin, to the world, to our plans and ambitions. That is the significance of baptism; we died with Christ and rose to new life”  ~ Vance Haver

“Baptism is faith in action.”  ~ Watchman Nee

“God’s people should be baptized because God commanded it, not because some church requires it.”  ~ John R. Rice

But all in all, water baptism represents the “ceremonial washing away of sins” and the “old life” and being baptized into the “new life”. It’s also the means by how Jesus Christ gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit/the spirit of truth. It’s how Jesus Christ gave ME the spirit of truth (during my NDE). So I can only speak from the bible and my own experience with water baptism. 

But let me specify, though. Baptism is NOT required for “Salvation”, alone. Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE is HIMSELF the way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins. For Salvation comes by Grace through FAITH + Obedience. So essentially, water baptism is one step closer in our submissive obedience to HIM and him, alone! 

Song from the 80’s hints at BIBLE PROPHECY: Future WWIII & One World Government System

At around 0:05, the house with the lights on at night-time represents THE TRUE CHURCH, living amongst a world that’s “full of darkness”. In other words, it’s a visual representation of how we’re forced to live IN the world but yet, not be PART of the world, spiritually speaking (John 15:19)

At 0:08, I see the boy dressed in white and the white teddy bear in the corner meaning to represent “innocence”. Jesus said in Matthew 18:3 “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”

MTV VIDEO PIC

0:11-0:14 has 8 candles. 8 represents the number of “completion”. When the candles get down to only “2” of them burning, it represents the time when the “2 Witnesses” are upon the Earth. It also visually represents that there are 2 paths and 2 paths, ONLY: Either you’re FOR the biblical, Jewish Jesus Christ or you are AGAINST him (for Satan), there IS no other way!!!!!! (P.S.: The “presents” on the table represent “materialism”). 

At 0:13-0:16, two candles are left burning and then eventually extinguished. The two candles signify the 2 Witnesses of Revelation, so when the 2 candles are left burning, this signifies the time that the 2 Witnesses will be allowed to prophecy on Earth. And the time the two candles are extinguished signifies the time when the Antichrist kills the 2 Witnesses.

The mom and sister clapping at 0:16-0:18 after “Tommy” (the Christian) blows out his birthday candles signify the Beast and Whore of Babylon being happy about those Christians who still follow “Pagan traditions of the World”, such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter.

At 0:18, I get the feeling that Tommy (the Christian) prolongly looking out the window and looking “slightly bummed” is visually representing the point in time when Christians begin to “question” what they were taught in the churches all along. As if he (the Christian) is thinking to himself:  

“Shouldn’t Christians be celebrating the Sabbath on the SEVENTH day of the week, like Jesus and the disciples did, instead of the FIRST day of the week? And shouldn’t Christians be celebrating the BIBLICAL feasts of Passover, Tabernacles, etc. like Jesus and the disciples did, instead of in holidays that have NOTHING to do with Jesus such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas?”  As in, a true, deep spiritual longing for BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY, not the Paganized version taught in “churches” today. 

At 0:19-0:27, Tommy (the Christian) stands near the door, representing the part of the bible where Jesus Christ says in Revelation 3:20: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me“.

The guy at the door at around 0:30 is supposed to represent an angel of the Lord

At 0:31-0:43, Tommy (the Christian) receives the gift of the Holy Spirit.

At 0:45-0:50, the boy Tommy (the Christian) is looking up at the sky, faithfully watching for the return of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

At 0:50-0:56, it’s either supposed to represent Jesus Christ as he is ascending out of the sky, returning for his saints after the Tribulation OR “the signs in heaven” that signify that The Antichrist has now come to full power on the Earth.

At 0:53 to 0:57 in the 1985 video, you see a star cluster coming out of the sky at a VERY high velocity.

On April 30, 2014, a Fox News article stated A star cluster was thrown out of the galaxy at a speed over 2 million mph

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2014/04/30/runaway-star-cluster-traveling-at-more-than-two-million-miles-per-hour/

star culture

At 0:57 or so, we are shown that the past, present & future are all simultaneously occurring at the same time, which further indicates Hebrews 13:8 which states: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”. In other words, God is everlasting and never changing. He’s eternal.

Around 0:57-1:04, an angel of the Lord is attempting to watch, observe and then trying to send out a spiritual message to the true Christian saints living on the Earth about what is about to take place (i.e. nuclear warfare). And either the angel is watching someone type the computerized command into the nuclear warhead’s mainframe OR the angel HIMSELF is trying to send out a secret coded message to Christians OR the angel is trying to DEACTIVATE the nuclear warhead real quick without them knowing (hence the fast typing). Nevertheless, we know it’s an angel at 0:58 secretly observing things. 

The time from 0:58-1:03 represents nuclear weapons development

The “lines” across the screen 1:08-1:26 are meant to represent prison bars and/or being in prison.

MTV VIDEO PIC2

INDEED, Revelation 2:10 states: “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into PRISON, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life“.

Jesus Christ and the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse are suggested at 1:12-1:24 in the video (again, I’m not comparing the singer TO Jesus Christ, I only meant that in the video, he’s meant to visually represent Jesus Christ)

mike and mechanics, horsemen of apocalypse

1:25-1:27 represents robots/artificial intelligence that’ll be widespread (both in American homes and non-American homes across the world).

The clown and the monkey in the boy’s room at 1:30-1:31 are supposed to represent The Beast and the False Prophet from the Book of Revelation

mike and mechanics, beast and false prophet

1:36-1:38 signifies non-Christians (perhaps, non-Christian friends/family members/coworkers) trying to encourage Christians to “use reason” and “abandon the Christian faith”

1:40-1:44 shows the boy (the Christian) looking prolongly at (reading) his father’s photograph (the bible) with the key (faith)

[The blinking doll right at 1:42 is supposed to represent the All Seeing Eye or New World Order]

1:44-1:46 illustrates Christians DEFENDING their faith to those who don’t believe

1:47-1:52 represents wayward Christians who are “spiritually sleeping” by giving up the Bible and Faith and the Holy Spirit by shutting off the light and living in darkness like the rest of the world.

1:53, we catch a glimpse of the angel again, who’s trying to watch over the dad (the “mature Christian”) and keep him safe from harm as turmoil (the Antichrist) comes upon the Earth. 

2:02-2:08 is once again supposed to represent the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse coming upon the Earth

2:16-2:18 represents the 2-edged sword of truth (given by the Holy Spirit) proceeding from Jesus’s mouth

2:24-2:27 shows the boy (the Christian) using the key (faith) and truth of the Holy Spirit to be received into God’s eternal grace

[The key in the boy’s hand at 2:25 is supposed to represent FAITH; faith in God/Jesus Christ, ALONE]

2:27-2:37 (the boy walking up the stairs, key in hand) is supposed to represent him being raptured up to heaven DUE to his faith (faith in God/Jesus Christ ALONE)

2:30 talking about the “gun & ammunition, just inside the doorway…….use ONLY in emergency” I think?? is telling Christians NOT to use physical violence or guns to defend themselves and their families unless they absolutely, positively HAVE TO, in order to defend themselves……..

[2:30-2:31 shows blue stairs, which represents the possible blue sapphire color of God’s throne]

On the other hand, at 2:39-2:51, it’s better to TRUST IN THE HOLY TRINITY, rather than in guns/ammo and those that get raptured in the rapture will be PROTECTED by Jesus, the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit UP IN HEAVEN WHILE God’s WRATH is reigning down upon the Earth. 

The boy at 2:43-2:47 (Christian saint) using the key (faith) to open up the door, which is then FULL OF LIGHT represents him (the Christian saint) meeting the Lord Jesus Christ in the air in the clouds of heaven

2:48-2:50 represents Heaven

2:50-2:51 represents God’s throne in Heaven

2:53-3:06 represents Jesus Christ in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 which states: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first“

In other words, it represents the time when Jesus Christ will descend down towards the Earth on the clouds of heaven, calling forth his faithful followers.

3:30-3:39 is supposed to represent the moment in time where God the Heavenly Father raptured/ascended Jesus Christ up to heaven to be on his right hand side AND also means to represent the moment in time when the faithful followers will become raptured up into the clouds to meet Jesus [1 Thessalonians 4:7] and thus, becoming a part of Jesus Christ’s “heavenly congregation”.

mike and mechanics, brightness of God and heaven

 

3:39-3:51 represents that “the music of the world” is still playing while those poor people left behind are still “prisoners” of the world and the One World government system and/or to represent the time right before Jesus Christ’s 2nd coming to Earth in Matthew 24: 37-39 which states: “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah 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”.

In other words, the One World Government system and the non-Christian and/or Wayward Christian peoples will continue to play their music, buy and sell, eat and drink, and marry as though nothing is wrong.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 states: “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”.

In other words, those that do NOT put their faith, trust and love in Jesus Christ will think they are just fine without him and continue to live their lives as though Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for us on the cross didn’t matter, eating, drinking and being merry. But then, sudden destruction will occur and they shall not escape.

[3:59-4:02, 4:07-4:10, and 4:16-4:20 represent nuclear warfare overtaking the Earth]

3:52-4:20 suggests that WWIII is just RAGING across the planet. It also seems to suggest that this is the very point in history (DURING the Tribulation) where Christians must fight and DIE for their faith, rather than just sitting there and taking it (the persecution of the Christian faith) like it appears that Christians did in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and early to mid-2000’s. Or it could mean a warning about how we need to teach our children/future children good, moral Christian values, otherwise, they will become like the nations who are responsible for WWIII, with nuclear missiles and all.

4:20-4:21 represents Revelation 12:12: “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”

4:20-4:22 The mother (who represents wayward/lukewarm Christians, nonbelievers as well as all those who think bible prophecy is NOT important and is NOT happening at the speed of light at all) is not really paying that much attention to what’s going on outside the house/the church/the bible. She just thinks “hhmm”, then goes back to “washing dishes” (in other words, goes back to living her daily life as though nothing’s happening in the world and it doesn’t matter. [2 Peter 3:4 “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 the creation”]

The mother from 4:21-4:49 (representing Satan and/or the Whore of Babylon) is at first “suspicious” that she’s lost her grip or control over the son (the Christian saint) and starts walking up the stairs to see where the boy (i.e. Christian saint) has gone and is trying to take the boy (the Christian saint) AWAY from God and AWAY from the light AS the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse are carrying out God the Heavenly Father’s will on Earth (atleast in MY interpretation anyways, others might possibly see it differently)

mother is the devil

4:49 signifies Revelation 1:7: “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen“

5:13-5:14 (those last 2 notes) signify Revelation 21:6: “And he said unto me, It is done. I AM ALPHA & OMEGA, THE BEGINNING **AND** THE END. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely”

 

 

 

The following are the lyrics to the song:

Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand (at this time, the war [WWIII?] and/or martial law is just now starting to break out and Christians are encourage to hide with their children in the basements of their houses, in attics, in some other type of “safe house” or in bunkers)
Don’t believe the church and state
And everything they tell you (Christians are advised NOT to believe everything the church and gov’t and popular and social media tells them)
Believe in me, I’m with the high command (Jesus Christ is informing the Christian of his identity — angels of the Lord would NEVER say something like “believe in me” for that would infer an angel telling Christians to worship him/her and remember that the angel in the book of Revelation told John NOT to bow down to him but to Jesus Christ, ONLY!)

Can you hear me, can you hear me running? (Jesus Christ through means of the Holy Spirit of truth is more or less asking the Christian “can you hear my voice?”)
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? (the Lord Jesus Christ — by means of the Holy Spirit — is trying to call people TO him and OUT of the One World system)
Can you hear me, can you hear me running? (Revelation 22:12 says: “behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”)
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There’s a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway (this could mean a literal gun with ammo or it could be symbolic of something else — thoughts, anyone?)
Use it only in emergency (when WWIII breaks out, only use a gun for self-defense and nothing more)
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here (in order to be protected from God’s wrath from heaven, we must put our faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ & his eternal truth!)

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? (Jesus Christ is inferring to the passage in Revelation 3:20 which states: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”)
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer (if one doesn’t agree with their country’s government, they are encouraged to “pretend” to agree for the sake of their own safety & their family’s safety)
Never hint at what you really feel (keep your faith in Jesus Christ hidden from world governments, whom are part of the One World/New Order system)
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still (This one perplexes me somewhat, but I surmise that it probably means Christian parents are to teach their children about Jesus Christ & Salvation “in secret” without the One World Government system knowing because one day they are going to be tried & tested and have to fight and die for their faith while the generation of the parents had to “stand still” and “pretend” to agree with their particular gov’t at the time their children were young in order to keep themselves and their children safe at that point in time?) 

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

The two stanzas up above are a reminder to us that Jesus Christ will return QUICKLY. Remember that 1,000 years down here on Earth is like 1 day up in heaven. If you don’t believe in or aren’t 100% ready for the return of Jesus Christ, then PLEASE pray to believe and mean the prayer with all your heart, soul and mind and PLEASE pray to be 100% ready for the return of Jesus Christ. Because for those Christians out there who think they can do a free sin-for-all and then repent at the last minute right BEFORE Jesus Christ comes back to the Earth again, THINK AGAIN!

1 Thessalonians 5:2-5 states: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night

2 Peter 3:10 says: “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up”

Revelation 22:12 says: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be

Matthew 25:13 states: “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh”

How does Jesus Christ communicate with people?

Many Christians (and even those who are non-Christian or non-religious) may be wondering how Jesus Christ communicates with people, rather or not Jesus Christ ever tries to communicate with non-Christians, and exactly WHAT it is that people mean when they hear someone say “God spoke to me today” or “God told me to do/not do such and such”.

Many people might be wondering the question; “Did that person actually hear God’s AUDIBLE voice? Are they psychologically CRAZY? What is the DEAL, here?”

And the simple answer is THIS: Jesus Christ communicates in a NUMBER of ways to people. He can speak to people audibly during near-death experiences, for instance. (Although I’ve never personally heard of a case where he AUDIBLY spoke to someone in the MODERN DAY outside of a dream or near-death experience). He can also speak through dreams and visions (as Job 33: 14-18 in the Old Testament and the “dreams” of other Old Testament prophets/certain people attest to). And most importantly, he can speak to someone IN SPIRIT…..either through his divine words in the bible and/or through means of the Holy Spirit. And when he speaks through means of the Holy Spirit, it’s not so much an AUDIBLE out-loud voice so much as it is an “inner voice of biblical reason”.

And you can tell it’s the Holy Spirit of God when what your gut says ALIGNS itself with what the BIBLE says……things such as, “you need to spend more time with your family” (a value that’s highly favored in the bible), “you need to spend more time reading and meditating on the bible each week”, “you need to re-examine and re-strengthen your faith”, or “you should go witness to your atheist friend about me today” or “you should go donate your last $5 to that homeless man over there so he can buy something to eat today” or the like. It will also tell you things like “Jesus Christ is Lord” or “Yeshua” (Jesus’s Hebrew name).   

For example: a person could be struggling with something in their lives (like, forgiving someone who has hurt them, overcoming lust or greed, fixing a broken marriage, dealing with a death in the family, etc.) And then, they will either have a dream or vision where Jesus tells them how to overcome the situation they’re struggling with or they’ll be prompted to look up a certain bible passage or to go read a certain Christian blog or listen to a certain Christian radio or tv program that covers the exact topic in question OR a friend, acquaintance or family member of the person with knowledge of that subject will oftentimes call or email the person out of the blue (as if by a miracle), which then opens the person to asking the friend the best way to deal with said topic/struggle. I’ve had that happen to me MANY times!

And if a person is non-Christian or a follower of ANOTHER religion besides true, biblical-based (Jewish-roots) Christianity, Jesus Christ will try to communicate with that individual in a certain set of ways. He’ll either try to speak to that person through an angel, a street preacher, a youtube video, an evangelist, an online message board, a televangelist, a Christian friend or family member, a blog, a news article about a miracle that happened, a near-death experience, a dream, a vision, a miracle, a radio broadcast, a book, a movie, the bible, etc. He has an INFINITE number of ways to try to communicate with the non-believer or with followers of a religion that is not COMPLETELY biblically-based (be it Satanism, atheism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Catholicism, Mormonism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.)

In fact, MANY non-Christian people and/or followers of other religions have reported having dreams and visions of Jesus Christ. It would seem these days that Jesus Christ Almighty is trying to get through to as many people as possible before the day of reckoning. And once that day comes, it will be too late for people to change their minds. Their eternal fate will be sealed and there will be NO.WAY.OUT. FOREVER. Revelation 20:15 gives a VERY CLEAR description of what happens to ALL those who disregard Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross for mankind’s sins: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.

However, there are ALSO cases where Satan will appear to people in visions and dreams DISGUISED as Jesus Christ sometimes, in order to try to fool people. So how can people tell the difference, you may ask? Well, the answer is simple. First of all, how do you FEEL when you very first encounter Jesus Christ in your visions or dreams? Do you feel content, restful, at peace, happy? Or do you feel uneasy, unsure, full of anxiety, etc? Secondly, do the words of “Jesus Christ” in your visions or dreams line up with the bible? Like, if a form of Jesus Christ appears in your dream and tells you “you should spend more time with your family”, it is most likely the good Lord himself speaking since the bible highly values marriage and family.

BUT…….if the “Jesus Christ” in your dream tells you to do something CONTRARY to the bible such as “you don’t have to read the bible every week to have strong faith” or “you really don’t have to try to make up with your friend that you had a falling out with, that’s not important to me right now” or “it’s okay if you don’t celebrate the Sabbath every week or celebrate it on the CORRECT time-frame (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown)”, etc. or makes you feel UNEASY or NERVOUS, then it is most definitely NOT the Jesus of the bible speaking to you in the dream!

But beware…….Satan can get so tricky sometimes as to appear to someone in a vision or dream in the form of Jesus Christ, say something that “SEEMS” to align with the bible, and then quickly add in a little tidbit that goes AGAINST the bible once he has the dreamer convinced that he is Jesus Christ and NOT himself!

As in: “So….I’ve been noticing you’ve been reading the bible alot lately……..good job…….I’m impressed……….now, I’d like you to work on THIS other area in your life……instead of reading the bible from now on, I want you to go out and focus on yourself for awhile……..you’ve been working so hard lately for my great, heavenly name…….and I want and need for you to take a break and relax for awhile, trust me, you need it. And then after a time, you can come back and be all “refreshed” in my “great heavenly name'”  [Note: The Lord Jesus Christ Almighty “never takes a vacation” from being God, so why should WE ever “take a vacation” from being his servant? Answer: we shouldn’t!]

So be VERY, VERY careful when trying to interpret/process spiritual visions and dreams!!!!!!!

And this isn’t a GAME, folks! This is FOR REAL! There is a SPIRITUAL WAR going on out there in today’s world, a war for your very SOUL! And believe me, your SOUL is the single most precious thing that you have, more valuable than ANY money, gold, possessions, friends or fame.  Cause what you say, do and believe in THIS world will determine where your SOUL (the single most precious possession that you have) will go for ETERNITY!

For our very own thoughts, deeds and actions someday will be judged accordingly. Those who put their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and follow all his commandments in the bible to the best of their ability shall enter into eternal life. But those who do NOT put their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and follow all his commandments in the bible to the best of their ability shall enter into eternal condemnation.

There is one way and ONLY one way and that way is through Jesus Christ. There are ONLY two paths in the world: the path of light, which leads to truth which is Jesus Christ and the path of darkness (all other religions other than biblically-based Christianity, including atheism) that lead to eternal condemnation. So essentially, the TWO choices are FOR Christ or AGAINST Christ. What side are YOU on?
