When You Feel Like Jesus “Doesn’t Love You”, Etc.

Note: I’ve previously written a similar post on the subject which can be found at: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/12/28/when-you-feel-like-giving-up-how-to-deal/

Lets face it, even the most “righteous” of Christian can sometimes feel like Jesus is “mad at them”, like he secretly “hates them”, like he is “utterly disappointed beyond compare” with them, and/or like he has technically “given up on them” etc.

And if most of us were completely & utterly HONEST, we’ve ALL felt that way atleast at SOME point in our lives or another, am I right? Some have felt that way for days, some for months and yet others for YEARS, even. But let me ask you THIS: Just WHOM or WHAT is BEHIND those “feelings?” Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY doesn’t come from Jesus & the heavenly angels!

ALL humans (biological males and biological females) were made in the image of God! And together, the biological male and biological female were modeled on two things and two things, ONLY: traditional marriage AND natural procreation!

And Satan, (as well as demons) as we all know, HATES the true image of God! In fact, that’s the very reason WHY there’s all of this “transgender”, “no gender”, “abortion”, “gay marriage”, “gay adoption”, and “sex change” stuff today,  that’s now even going into OVER-DRIVE! Because Satan is working OVER-TIME to try to DESTROY the image of God!!!!!!!!!!!

The bible says that Satan is here upon this Earth to KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY! Well, “abortion” does all 3 things in ONE! Not to mention that homosexuals and “transgenders” have a MUCH HIGHER suicide rate than the national average! Therefore, Satan is DEFINITELY “killing and destroying” as much of the true/biological image of God that he possibly can! (And much more ferociously as the years go by, even! If an 11-year old drag queen dancing in a gay bar doesn’t attest to that very fact alone, that I don’t know what does!)

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is God’s “authenticated signature” on his creation. So when you got things and people (namely Satan) trying to UNDO that, you’ve got someone who’s desperately trying to THWART the true image of God and God’s “authenticated signature” upon his ENTIRE CREATION!

Therefore, if Satan is THAT willing to try to THWART God’s authenticated signature upon God’s own creation, what makes anyone think that Satan will stop THERE? Satan (and even demons) KNOW that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation! They simply KNOW it, there’s NO denying it or getting around it for them! Therefore, Satan reasons within himself, that if he CAN’T destroy Salvation in Jesus Christ for Mankind (in and of itself), his NEXT move is to try to RUIN OUR FAITH IN JESUS!

For if he can get us to QUESTION Jesus or to falsely make us think that Jesus has so-called “abandoned us” then maybe, just maybe (Satan reasons) he can STEAL US AWAY FROM JESUS FOR ***ALL ETERNITY!*** That’s quite a sobering thought, isn’t it, folks? And trust me, that sort of thought process doesn’t happen overnight! It’s a gradual build. It starts out so small, then eventually morphs into something much bigger.

Satan knows he oftentimes can’t get us to question our “faith” in Jesus, DIRECTLY. So he takes a more subtle, long, drawn out approach. He’ll oftentimes try to manipulate our “emotions” to try to get us to “stray” from the gospel (say, a “gay” friend or family member who “whines” that people “can’t help it” if they’re “gay” or the like). Or he’ll bring up past sins we’ve committed that we’re still grappling with (“remember when YOU did such n’ such?”)

Or a 3rd approach he’ll often try is to get us to compromise “just a little bit”, in the hopes that that small “compromise” to sin will soon lead to BIGGER COMPROMISES to sin (and it oftentimes DOES!) For example, you were given back 1 penny too much in change, so Satan tempts you with: “Oh come on, it’s a super hot summer day, do you REALLY want to have to go all the way back into the store, having to walk once again through the SCORCHING HEAT, just to return that ONE measly penny?”

And then, over time, “small sins” will eventually lead to “bigger sins” and once the “bigger sins” start happening, that’s when things start to spiritually spiral out of control! And it’s then and only then that Satan will oftentimes begin the “question Jesus altogether” plan! The following arguments are those often employed by Satan to try to eternally separate us from Christ:

  • “Are you SURE you’re good enough for salvation in Christ?”
  • “Christ isn’t looking to save the SUPER SINNERS like YOU!”
  • “You’re too bad, you’re too sinful, Jesus has ALREADY given up on you, my friend, hate to break it to you”
  • “What? You don’t believe that gay people should have equal rights? What a terrible, terrible person you are! How bigoted! How hateful!”
  • “Ah, so you haven’t heard from Jesus in awhile, eh? That’s because he hates you and has abandoned you!”
  • “It’ll ONLY be a matter of time before I conquer you! You’re so far from Christ that it’s not even funny!”
  • “Just where is your Jesus, now? I don’t see him anywhere around here, do YOU?”
  • ‘Jesus has given up on you! He WANTS you to suffer! He WANTS you to feel miserable and alone!”
  • “Jesus is highly disappointed in you right now! Look at all the FAILURES you’ve had in your spiritual life, lately!”
  • “You’re hardly making ANY difference in people’s lives! Nobody’s interested in hearing the gospel! You should just quit while you’re still ahead!”
  • “You’re a total JOKE! Even the demons think so!”
  • “You’ve committed SO many sins lately, you might as well join the dark side! Ha!”
  • ETC.

And when all of THAT fails, Satan gots more tricks up his “arsenal”, still! If he can’t get us to ABANDON or QUESTION our faith in Christ, or to commit major sins against Christ, he’ll instead try to work on FEAR! 

  1. “Am I really good enough to enter the New Millennial Kingdom someday?”
  2. “Will Jesus someday say to me, ‘Depart from me, I never knew you?'”
  3. “Is what I’m doing here down on this Earth good enough for Jesus?” 
  4. “What if x, y, z person doesn’t listen to me when I preach the gospel of Jesus to them? What is the point?”
  5. “Why DOES Jesus allow so much suffering in my life for? Does he care about me AT ALL?” 
  6. HAS Jesus given up on me down here on this Earth?”
  7. IS Jesus ever returning to the Earth? He certainly seems to be taking his sweet little time! Maybe he’s “changed his mind” about coming to the Earth a 2nd time!”
  8. “Maybe Jesus HAS abandoned me and there’s no hope left for me upon this Earth!” 

Romans 10:17 says: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”.

So let us now run through a spiritual “checklist”, if you will, in order to get to the bottom of WHY you feel like Jesus has “abandoned you” or “doesn’t love you anymore”:

  1. When’s the last time you read the bible? (King James version?) Has it been awhile? If so, WHY? And can you see how NOT reading the bible in a really long time has fully aided Satan’s full-thronged spiritual attack(s) AGAINST YOU? 
  2. Have you knowingly (or perhaps unknowingly) brought any “demonic objects” into your heart, home, car, soul or mind? If so, what are these objects and do you now see how these objects have invited “demonic spirits” (such as lethargy, doubt, anger, envy, depression, etc.) into your life, heart, mind, soul and HOME?
  3. WHERE do you think the feelings of “Jesus not loving me” are coming from? Do you think Jesus HIMSELF or his righteous holy angels are behind those feelings? And if they’re NOT behind those ungodly feelings, then who IS?
  4. In what ways has Satan “spiritually attacked” you, lately? Do you not realize that feeling that Jesus doesn’t love you IS a mode of Satan’s attack AGAINST YOU, in and of ITSELF? 
  5. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you, then WHY did he die for YOUR sins (and all of mankind’s sins) on the cross? 
  6. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you, then WHY did he send you here to THIS very blog post on the internet to reassure you of his love and to warn you of the TOTAL DEPTHS of Satan’s spiritual attacks UPON YOU? 
  7. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you and if he’s TRULY given up on you the way that Satan “claims”, then why is Satan TRYING SO VERY HARD to get you to abandon your faith in Christ, altogether? Because obviously, Jesus has NOT given up on you in any way, shape or form, which is WHY Satan is fighting so desperately to try to eternally conquer your soul! Think about it, folks! 
  8. Do you realize that you’re not the ONLY one who’s going through these spiritual struggles right now and that MANY have either already gone through them or are now currently going through them? YOU’RE NOT ALONE

Here are SEVEN inspiring verses that I’d like to share with you all, concerning Jesus’s LOVE FOR US:

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”

Ephesians 2: 4-7But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus”

1 John 3:1 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not”

1 John 4: 9-11In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”

Romans 5:25By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us

Romans 8:37-39Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”

STILL not sure if Jesus loves you or not? The fact in and of itself that you’re even ASKING the question TO BEGIN WITH proves that he loves you! HOW? The fact you even SPEAK his name, in and of itself, and the fact that you even BELIEVE upon his name PROVES that he loves you! For think about it, if Jesus didn’t love you (and I assure you, he DOES), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that he WOULDN’T want his name to be KNOWN to you? Think about it! If Jesus Christ did NOT love the world (as per John 3:16), then A) He NEVER would’ve died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins in the first place and B) He would NOT want his name to be KNOWN throughout the world! 

But even still, if you STILL don’t feel like Jesus loves you, then I will say a precious prayer for you, dear friend:

Jesus, there’s some unfortunate souls out there today who do NOT feel loved by you for whatever reason – most of those reasons being their own self-doubts brought about by Satan and demons! Please break Satan’s power over their lives! Please help them GET RID OF any demonic objects in their hearts, minds, cars or homes! Please help them to realize that they’re in a SPIRITUAL BATTLE for their VERY SOULS! Please show them the GREAT LOVE you have for them! Please show them the TOTAL DEPTHS that Satan WILL go to, in order to try to deceive them! Please liberate them from Satan’s grasp! Please give them a newfound hope & a future in YOU, O Lord! Please shine your heavenly grace upon them and give them a newfound faith and hope  that can ONLY be found in YOU and YOU, alone! Please give them a newfound faith in you that’s SO STRONG, that NOTHING can break it! NOTHING and NO-ONE! Prepare them for spiritual persecution and spiritual battle, for they will NEED it in these Last Days! Please bless them & keep them for all eternity! Amen“. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The TRUTH About Modern Day “Secular Therapy”, ETC.

Modern day “secular therapy” has us go to “psychiatrists” and “psychologists”. Many secular “experts” tell us that our “depression” and “anxiety” and “behavioral disorders” (especially in young children and teens) are caused by a “chemical imbalance of the brain” and that “medication” + “secular talk therapy” is the ONLY means by which to be “healed”. But is that RIGHT? Is it BIBLICALLY sound and ACCURATE? Or is it just one of MANY “secular lies” that are meant to once again HIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE 100% TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD/JESUS? Let us examine.

When going to Amazon one day to search for some Christian end times resources, the Lord Jesus IMMEDIATELY compelled me to suddenly look at the actual user reviews for an ungodly book called: “The Satanic Bible”. And I said outloud in shock: “JESUS, ARE YOU FOR REAL ON THAT? YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!”

But instead, the sad but calm/firm answer I got back from him was THIS: “Look at what they SAY…..the people who UPHOLD that ungodly book, that is…..it will help give you a really good insight into HOW the enemy deceives and the EXACT POINTS in people’s lives WHERE he’s deceiving them AT. You might just be surprised!”

And so, after spending some time in prayer and with much trepidation, I headed on over to see the user reviews! And MAN, WAS MY SOUL **GRIEVED** AND SADDENED, as I poured over the user reviews to try to figure out just WHAT these poor, deceived folks found so “enticing” about “Satan/Satanism”. I felt like my soul was about to vomit!

Nevertheless, ONE particular user review STOOD OUT AT ME! In fact, it was ONE sentence in particular IN that review that really JUMPED RIGHT OUT AT ME!

………”IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED, HOW CLOSE MANY ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK ARE TO WHAT THERAPISTS TEACH THEIR CLIENTS TO **IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!**…….”

Now, WOW…..that quote is QUITE TELLING, isn’t it, folks? But yet, it actually makes sense. Modern day “secular therapy” and all the colleges and universities (UNLESS it’s born-again CHRISTIAN therapists/psychiatrists) are all teaching a thing called “self-actualization”.

Basically, that means the promotion of SELF! Or in other popular lingo, it means “Do You”, “be the person YOU want to be”, “follow YOUR dreams/desires”, etc., REGARDLESS of what Jesus thinks! In other words, put YOUR own needs above the needs of any and all others (especially Jesus!)

Lets say you want to start a business, etc. Great! But is the Lord Jesus in on it? Do YOU have the Lord Jesus’s approval AND backing for said business, etc.? Because if you DON’T, that’s placing your own wants/needs/desires before Jesus’s will/desire for your life! And placing ourselves BEFORE Jesus in our “life dreams” or “plans” is actually indirectly DENYING the cross of Jesus (rather we like it or admit it or not) and making OURSELVES our “own god!” It’s true! 

And thus, placing our OWN needs ahead of the will of Jesus is, ofcourse, a form of “idolatry” (making ourselves “our own god”), which is COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY to the words of Jesus Christ himself who in Luke 9:23 said: “…..If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS *DAILY*, and follow me“. Now…….what does it mean to “take up one’s cross DAILY?”, some of you might be wondering. “Is Jesus talking about a LITERAL CROSS or what?” 

Well, first of all, think of what all Jesus had to endure ON the cross (i.e. excruciating PAIN, sorrow, mocking, ridicule, laughter, being spat on, having a crown of thorns placed on his head, being stabbed in his side with a spear, his hands and feet NAILED to the cross, etc.)

In other words, he had to suffer excruciating pain for OUR benefit (i.e. becoming the ATONEMENT for all of the sins of mankind). Therefore……what does it mean when WE “bear our cross” DAILY for Jesus? It means bearing our personal “CROSSES OF AFFLICTION” FOR the sake of Jesus and his gospel!

And no two people’s “crosses of affliction” are alike! Now…..IS this a LITERAL cross we must nail ourselves to everyday? No, ofcourse not! It is a spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and psychological cross of “spiritual affliction” that we must pick up and carry with us each and every single day of our lives! So for example, ONE person’s “daily cross of affliction” may be struggles with spiritual persecution for being a Christian, while ANOTHER person’s “daily cross of affliction” might be a struggle with a perpetual sin that they’re attempting to overcome (i.e. alcoholism, lust, same sex attraction, etc.)

And EACH and every single day, each person must spiritually FIGHT that “cross” of spiritual affliction and OVERCOME that “cross of affliction”, if that makes any sense? So in other words, the person that suffers the “cross of spiritual persecution” must ENDURE that spiritual persecution and KEEP THE FAITH, each and every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! And the person struggling with the “cross of affliction” of alcoholism/same-sex attraction/etc. must FIGHT the temptations OF that “sin” (i.e. that “cross of affliction”) each and every single day of their lives! That’s what Jesus means when he says to “….take up his cross daily, and follow me” [reference: Luke 9:23]

Therefore, “self-actualization” and/or worship of SELF does absolutely NOTHING for Jesus or his gospel! In fact, those two ungodly practices actually cause us to DENY our “daily cross of affliction” and to DENY Jesus and his gospel! So think about that for a bit! 

Now….why does Jesus want us to DENY OURSELVES for him in this Earthly life? Think about what Jesus HIMSELF denied for US! When He came to the Earth as a newborn infant, he DENIED himself his divinity and RICHES! (True, he had the “rich gifts” from the 3 wise men…….but he was born into a POOR FAMILY!) He wasn’t even born in a proper inn but in a barn-type stable! Now think about that……..truly think about that for a minute! His whole entire earthly life, he was POOR!

For the 3 some years of his ministry on the Earth, he was a NOMAD! And though he performed miracles, etc., he STILL denied himself of his FULL divinity! And when he was tried and persecuted and nailed to the cross, he CONTINUED to deny himself his full divinity!

In fact, he denied himself EVERYTHING for US! He sacrificed HIMSELF completely for the forgiveness of OUR sins! He then gained victory over death, hell and the grave! He later ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father! THE UNIVERSE HAS KNOWN NO GREATER LOVE THAN THE LOVE THAT JESUS HAD **FOR MANKIND** WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR FORGIVENESS OF MANKIND’S SINS!!! (NOTE: PLEASE READ JOHN 3:16).

Therefore, Jesus denied himself for US! Which is why WE NOW, must deny ourselves, in turn, for HIM and His everlasting gospel! Because we are to be likened onto HIM! For mankind was made in his image! (It says that in Genesis 1:27!) So in other words, we are to try to live our lives as much like Christ as possible. We should strive to serve others before ourselves. We should be slow to anger, quick to forgive, patient, loving, kind. We should honor and follow the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Now, we’re all human, and we’re all going to fall short of the mark of righteousness sometimes. This is recorded in Romans 3:23 which states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

So in other words, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, that shouldn’t give us a free license to sin! Some of today’s Christian therapists might mean well on the surface. But if they’re not born again or if they’re lukewarm or a “leftist liberal” that supports such things such as LGBT and abortion, it’s time for you to seek a NEW Christian therapist!

But then again, it begs of question: Why do we humans keep going to other people and the internet to try to solve our problems when we should instead be going to JESUS HIMSELF to solve all our problems? Isn’t JESUS HIMSELF the ULTIMATE HEALER? And doesn’t JESUS HIMSELF have all the answers to the questions or problems that we seek solutions for?

Didn’t JESUS HIMSELF create the universe and the heavens? So how then is he going to scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR problems? Answer: he won’t! Because doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens with just the MERE SOUND OF HIS VOICE (i.e. “let there be light”), that he certainly knows what he’s doing in OUR everyday lives (rather we know it or realize it or not?)

Another aspect I forgot to mention is “demonic influences” (i.e. Ephesians 6:12). They are MUCH more powerful and active than we think! Even just ONE alcoholic drink, ONE ungodly movie, ONE ungodly music song, ONE un-prescribed painkiller, ONE ungodly book (i.e. Harry Potter), ONE ungodly object in our homes such as Ouija board/tarot cards/carved idol could be enough to invite SEVERAL DEMONS into our hearts, homes, minds and SOULS!

So it’s really NO WONDER the majority of Americans today (as well as several people around the world) feel depressed, anxious, restless, unfulfilled, never happy, etc. It’s because of all the “demonic influences” that people have let into their lives! That’s the REAL reason for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.! BUT SECULAR THERAPISTS WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT!

They’ll lie to you (many being “spiritually lost” themselves) and will say it’s because of a “chemical imbalance in the brain”. Okay, question, who or what CAUSED that so-called “chemical imbalance” in the FIRST PLACE? Any clues? Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY wasn’t Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS angels that did that!

And the fact that SATAN/DEMONS are responsible for ALL cases of restlessness/anxiety/SEVERE DEPRESSION……it almost sounds somewhat “odd”, “crazy” or “sensational” on the surface, doesn’t it? But yet, the demonic realm is REAL! Many famous movie stars have come out and ADMITTED they sold their soul to Satan and/or agreed to be *inhabited by demons* for money, fortune and fame! And they’re NOT kidding, folks! DEMONS ARE REAL! SATAN IS REAL! Don’t you DARE bet your soul otherwise!

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

Ofcourse, don’t get me started on how the bible constantly uses the words “he”, “him” and “his”. Because in nearly all of those cases, Jesus means females as well. If the bible translators were gonna be very technical about it, they could’ve written “he/she”, “his/hers”, “him/her”, etc.

However, in light of today’s modern day “gender confusion” among the extreme LEFT here in America, I believe Jesus PURPOSELY had them translate the words AS “he”, “him” and “his” in order to avoid any future confusion that might’ve been caused with the modern day “transgender movement”. Because we have to remember that Jesus is an all-powerful, all-knowing God. He knew way ahead of time about the “transgender madness” that would soon take place in this fallen world!

I believe ANOTHER reason the bible tends towards male adjectives is because A) Jesus himself is MALE and all the prophets of Old (save for Anna and Deborah) were MALE! In other words, the message between the lines (all throughout the scriptures) is that modern day men (and women) need to be likened onto the prophets of God that (for the most part) did NOT rebel against God, in other words.

In other words, the whole of scripture is warning us NOT to commit the same ultimate sin that Adam and Eve did. Because IF we do {and in OUR modern day times, taking the Mark of the Beast is what I literally see as partaking of the modern-day version of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil}, the consequence won’t just be physical death but ETERNAL DEATH/CONDEMNATION as well. The reason that Adam & Eve “got off so easy” on their MAJOR TRANSGRESSION is because they were the VERY FIRST humans. They “almost” didn’t know any better.

But yet, MODERN DAY humans? We’ve had nearly 4,000? + years or more of human history, plus the scriptures and scriptural examples, not to mention the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross! Therefore, while Adam & Eve were forgiven for their “original sin” of partaking of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil (even though they were still temporally punished with “physical death” later, as a consequence of their actions), WE (i.e. modern day humans) will be WITHOUT EXCUSE (and be ETERNALLY PUNISHED BY JESUS) if WE partake of OUR modern-day version of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e. The Mark of the Beast!) 

But going back to the modern day field of “psychiatry”. It “diagnosis” things and then “prescribes medication”. And the pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of it! They’re CONSTANTLY developing new “drugs” for things such as “depression”, “anxiety”, etc. They FUND studies that attempt to show the so-called “effectiveness” of their “new drugs”. And sadly, those “studies” seem to have very little oversight by the FDA, from what I’ve noticed.

So when you got this multi-BILLION dollar INDUSTRY that makes its money off of people being “sick” and/or “full of depression/anxiety”, you begin to understand how and why all these “meds” are over-prescribed and under-studied! Just follow the $$$$ signs! They don’t make their money by people getting better, folks! They make their money off of people being “sick” and “unhealthy!” Think about it, now! I really hate to say that but it’s the truth! Big Pharma is ONLY out to make money! And “secular therapists” (for the most part anyways, as a whole) are too, for that matter! It’s only the TRULY born-again Christian therapists who aren’t out to make money but to SAVE SOULS!

Also: Drugs meant to treat “depression” and “anxiety” are considered “mind-altering drugs”. But honestly. How is that any different from “psychedelics?” Both of them “alter the mind”, it’s just that one is “legal”, while the other is not. Do we REALLY want or need to put ANY form of “mind-altering drugs” into our system? Even the ones that are “legal?” Think about that long and hard, folks! (Please note: I’m not talking about medications that are used to break fevers or colds or that sort of thing. I’m ONLY talking about mind-altering medications!!!!!!!) 

In fact, I’ve even seen cases where certain anti-depressants (and even some sleep medications) actually INCREASED feelings of depression and anxiety and CAUSED a person (especially a teen or young child) to feel suicidal! As in, making the person BECOME what the medication itself was originally supposed to CURE/TREAT! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE, FOLKS? That should be a HUGE red flag, people! Who or what is behind Big Pharma? Any guesses folks? Cause it sure as heck ain’t Jesus or his righteous angels!!!!!!!!! 

One word that keeps coming back to me over and over again is the word “pharmakeia”. Something about the word just perpetually HAUNTS MY SOUL (for some reason) and I don’t know why! But according to the following website: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5331/pharmakeia.htm, the word is a Greek word which means (in retrospect) “pharmacy” or “medicine”. It could also mean “sorcery” or “witchcraft”.

But again, it stands to reason! Just HOW MANY diseases, headaches and ailments (such as depression, epilepsy, anxiety) are actually caused by DEMONIC SPIRITS? Probably more than we think! Jesus was able to cure people INSTANTLY! In most cases, he placed his hand on them and they were healed. Which makes perfect sense. At the mere sight of Jesus, demons TREMBLE! (“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” – James 2:19).

But in TODAY’S WORLD, people are turning to MEDICINE (in and of itself) for all of their mental, emotional and physical ailments, INSTEAD of turning to Jesus Christ himself, whom they SHOULD be turning to! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Today, we live in a such a “pill popping society”. “Oh, you got THIS? Take a pill” seems to be the prime societal attitude. Many people (even myself included, at times) are FORGETTING the fact that Jesus isn’t JUST Almighty God in the flesh, isn’t JUST the “atoning saviour” of ALL of mankind (those who choose to believe in and OBEY HIM, that is), but he’s also THE HEALER! For just how many times do we read about Jesus HEALING PEOPLE *INSTANTLY* in the New Testament? Answer: SEVERAL!

But again, lets us go back to the Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples were on the Mount of Olives with Jesus, they not only asked him about the signs of the end of times (i.e. the end of the age) but they also asked him about the proper way to “pray”. And Jesus’s response was THIS:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen“. Matthew 6:6-13 {Note: Please remember that the very last lines of “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” were ADDED WORDS and the Lord’s DIRE WARNING to us about “adding words” in Revelation 22:18-19! That’s something we should all take VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!)} 

Okay, now zero in on the words THY WILL BE DONE. What does that imply? It implies that WE (like Jesus) should be seeking the Heavenly Father’s will (DAILY), instead of our OWN WILL! Because when Satan rebelled against the Heavenly Father in Heaven, he wanted HIS will to be done, INSTEAD of the Heavenly Father’s will (which ofcourse, in effect, was likened onto making himself his “own god” – IDOLATRY!) 

So that’s where you get all of this Secular “Do YOU” and “Do What Thou Wilt” stuff. Because Satan (whose angry and knows he has but a short time – as per Revelation 12:12) wants to try to conform all of mankind to HIS ungodly image (Note: Please remember from Genesis 1:27 that we – biologically-born males and females) are made in the image of God and Satan HATES the image of God and thus, desperately wants to THWART IT!) So instead of focusing on the words in the Lord’s Prayer called “THY WILL be done”, Satan is more focused on MY WILL be done”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

We’re SO concerned with what WE think, how WE feel, what WE want out of life (or even out of romantic love). Very, very few of us are concerned with what God the Heavenly Father wants or what Jesus wants! We’re ethnocentric, and egocentric! We think it’s all about US! “What should *I* buy on Amazon today? Where do *I* want to live, someday? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What about how *I* feel about such n’ such? What do *I* want out of life?”, etc. “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I!” However, there’s just one problem with that. Jesus is 99.9% of the time NOT in the picture OF those “thoughts” and “plans!” Kind’ve sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks? 

Group therapy can be effective, yes. It’s always GOOD to know that we’re not the only ones going through something. However…..if Jesus Christ himself is NOT the center of that “group therapy”, then just what good will it do, in the long run? Think about it. 

However, organizations like AA and/or “12 step programs” (for the most part) have a Christian backing. Because think about it. Lets say, just for theoretical example, that the atheists were right and there was no God, etc. Well, WHAT then, would be the prime motivator for a person to stop drinking, etc.? If we were “all that there is”, purely theoretically speaking, then there would truly be no motivator to quit drinking (outside of friends and family, and even THAT would likely be “iffy”, in secular settings and with secular/nihilistic viewpoints). 

However, BECAUSE Jesus exists, there IS a powerful motivator for an alcoholic to stop drinking (outside of friends, coworkers and family). Secular group “talk therapy” would be the same way. If we were “all that there is”, people would just meet like-minded people who would then become depressed TOGETHER, instead of getting better. Therefore, it’s only *born-again* CHRISTIAN group “talk therapy” that will help a person TRULY get better (not just physically but spiritually/emotionally/mentally, too). Secular group therapy only makes a person better up to a certain point. Do you see what I mean by this, folks?

Satan and “demonic spirits” are the ones causing people to drink, causing people to feel depressed and inadequate, causing people to have heartburn and anxiety, and causing people to “become addicted to opioids”.  That’s the BAD NEWS! However, the GOOD NEWS is that BECAUSE those things are caused by demonic spirits, Jesus Christ is ready, willing and ABLE to spiritually and physically deliver a person FROM those ungodly spirits, as soon as a person cries out to Jesus in prayer and TRULY BELIEVES! 

Though, like I said, demonic spirits need a “legal spiritual doorway” by which to enter! So again, I ask: What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of TV shows or movies are you watching? What kinds of video games are you playing? What kinds of friends or people are you keeping company with? What kinds of objects or “thoughts” are you letting into your car, home, workplace? What kinds of “words” or “thoughts” are you MEDITATING ON

I just saw this video earlier today that claimed that “words are energy“. It’s well-worth the watch! And remember, we must SPEAK Christ’s words over ourselves DAILY! The words of Christ HAVE POWER

So that being said, have you felt depressed, stressed, full of anxiety over the present or future, etc? Turn to Jesus today IN PRAYER! Have the FAITH that he will HEAL YOU and then he will HEAL YOU! 

Speak OUTLOUD the following words and phrases (and TRULY BELIEVE THEM) in order to GIVE THEM POWER:

1). “Spirit of Depression, I demand you to DEPART, in the name of Jesus!”

2). “Spirit of Anxiety/Heartburn/etc., I demand you to LEAVE, in the name of Jesus!”

3). “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

4). “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

5). “And they OVERCAME HIM [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” – Revelation 12:11

6). “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – John 10:28

7). “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” – Revelation 20:10

 

THE DARK, SPIRITUAL SIDE OF ABORTION

Many people (both pro-choice and anti-choice) are constantly butting heads over the “ethics” of abortion. But yet, what many don’t realize (even among some of the pro-life crowd) is that, when you peel back the layers of abortion, it’s nothing short of SPIRITUAL WARFARE! In fact, dark, spiritual warfare is ALL AROUND US, here in the year 2016, many of it right underneath our noses!

[For example, many famous people out in Hollywood let demonic spirits “inhabit them”, in order to enhance their performances! And so, when we WATCH those particular movies or TV programs or LISTEN to that particular music, we, the watcher/listener, are ALSO inconsequentially opening ourselves up to demons, rather we realize it or not…….But that’s a different post for a different day].

Abortion is a VERY heated topic in today’s political & social landscape….as it SHOULD be! (If all pro-lifers were “complacently silent” on the issue of abortion and let it go un-checked, just think of how much more “hellish” this world and society would be!) However, BEHIND the political arguments for and against abortion is something deeper……something much, much DARKER than many people had even anticipated. For what MANY people don’t realize is THIS: THERE IS A SPIRITUAL SIDE TO ABORTION/THE ACT OF ABORTION THEREOF AND THE SPIRITUAL SIDE IS VERY, VERY DARK/SATANIC, **INDEED!**

ALL human beings, both male and female, were originally made in the image of God. And so unborn babies are where it all begins, folks! They are all made in the image of God! And Satan HATES the image of God…..absolutely, positively can not STAND it! Therefore, he wants to work SO VERY HARD at DESTROYING/DESECRATING the image of God and abortion is just one of the MANY ways in which he DOES just that…..

Lets begin with the fact that Planned Parenthood has a “goddess statue” outside one (or all?) of its clinics. This is VERY telling, folks…..

abortion-demons-pic20

THIS, right away, tells me that Planned Parenthood is into “goddess worship”. And SO…..it stands to reason…..if they are into “goddess worship”, then that means they are also likely into “Satan worship”, since in a true spiritual sense, Wicca/Satanism is pretty much the same mixed bag. They BOTH deny & mock Christ.

I believe this particular “goddess” pictured above is supposed to represent Medusa, with a crown of serpents on her head. And this particular “goddess” mocks Christ in SEVERAL WAYS:

1). The crown of serpents MOCKS the crown of thorns placed on Christ’s head during his crucifixion

2). Her arms stretched outright is not only mocking the cross of Jesus Christ, but is also likely mocking the passage of Matthew 11:28 scripture which states: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”

3). She’s a woman, she’s naked, and her eyes are closed. Therefore, her eyes being closed mocks Christ’s death, the fact that she’s a woman mocks the fact that Christ was/is the SON of God, and her “reveling in her nakedness” and holding her hands out in a “meditative trance” is mocking Christ by showcasing New Age/Far East philosophies

4). Notice the smug/arrogant “smirk” on her face

But now lets go to the very CORE of abortion and what it centers around: FEMINISM. It started in the 60s’ with the Hippy Movement, and went on down through the 70s/early 80s. When women gained the “right” to join the workforce, they felt “empowered” and thought it was all about THEM.

But behind the curtain was something much, much darker: SATAN WANTED TO DESTROY THE TRADITIONAL/BIBLICAL FAMILY MODEL (“working father” + “stay at home mom”), plus the “elite” wanted the right to “tax women” (income taxes) in order to further line their pockets. Because truth be told, the elite don’t give give a CRAP about women…….for if they DID, they’d be helping women RAISE their babies, not KILL them in untimely abortions! 

See how Satan works, folks? First, he “tricked” Eve, the very FIRST human woman, into sinning by getting her to think it was ALL ABOUT HER! And he’s doing the same exact thing to human women, TODAY: It’s all about YOU, woman! YOU should have the right to work in jobs that are specifically designed for men! YOU should have the right to have unprotected sex at your leisure, then kill your baby if it gets in the way of YOUR lifestyle! YOU should have the right to have an affair if your husband/boyfriend’s not fulfilling you! YOU should have the right to dress as provocatively as YOU want to! YOU should have the right to have sex with whomever you want, wherever you want, without reprimand!And the list goes on and on and on.

Many women don’t realize this but whenever they’re “thinking” about abortion, going through an abortion or already had an abortion, SATAN HAS TRICKED THEM into thinking that “abortion’ll solve all your problems“, when, in reality, it only further manages to CREATE THEM! And many women suffer YEARS and YEARS of emotional and psychological AGONY over it, afterwards…..some even waking up in a cold sweat with repeated nightmares of baby cries and bloody fetuses! It’s the ugly side of abortion that Planned Parenthood WON’T tell women, because hey, they got $$$ quotas to fill, right? 😦

Bottom line is that SATAN WANTS YOUR BABY, women! He also wants to destroy the motherly bond a woman feels with her unborn child! And this is THE MOST precious bond a woman can EVER feel! Satan wants to rob a woman of her joy! Every child is a GIFT from God, like it or not! Now…..there’s those who use the “rape/incest” excuse or “deformity” excuse or “mother’s life in danger” excuse to terminate the baby’s life. But tell me this: OF those “rape babies” or “botched abortion babies” that SURVIVED……and lived to tell their stories……what were THEIR rights? Tell me. Because this “pro-abortion society” never gave them any!!!!!!!!

To Satan and his demons, and Planned Parenthood, those “babies” were all just considered a “clump of cells”, am I right? It’s also funny to me how Planned Parenthood does NOT consider unborn babies “human”, but yet, considers them “human enough” to sell their tissue cells.

Wow….. 

Back in ancient biblical times in the Old Testament, the Israelites were exiled to Babylon. Babylon was a Pagan, Molech-worshiping nation. And as you can imagine, when the God-loving Israelites came into contact with a region and people that did NOT love/obey God, (Babylon, etc.) they TOO, over time, began to act/think/behave as “God-haters”. Just like they too, began to marvel after the Babylonian’s “gods” (the chief one of them being Molech – what we now know as Beelzebub or Satan). And the Canaanites sacrificed their children to the god Molech. So guess what? After a time, some of the Israelites started doing the same…..sacrificing their OWN children to Molech.

abortion-demons-pic2 abortion-demons-pic3

So in TODAY’S terms, it’s REALLY no different: ABORTION IS A CHILD SACRIFICE TO SATAN. Repeat: ABORTION IS A CHILD SACRIFICE TO SATAN! (It’s just the “modern-day version” of it, is all).

In fact, according to the website: 

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/abortion-is-a-perfect-demonic-system-says-human-life-international-presiden 

  – It has its sacred dogma (“choice”),
  – its ruling hierarchy (Planned Parenthood),
  – its theologians (feminist ideologues),
  – its sacrificing priesthood (abortionists),
  – its temples (abortion mills),
  – altars (surgical tables),
  – ritual victims (primarily babies and secondarily women),
  – acolytes and sacristans (clinic workers and death-escorts),
  – congregations (all supporters of abortion) and
  – its own unifying principle of sacramental “grace” (money).

“In short, the abortion industry is a perfect demonic system which offers a perverse form of worship to the devil.”

Wow. Couldn’t of said it any better myself. Here is a Youtube video on the subject:

Imagine if Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today. In the bible, it said that Jesus LOVED children, as the following passages illustrate:

“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” – Matthew 19:14

“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven” – Matthew 18:10

[[Note: In the first quote, many young children (likely, many curious/joyous toddlers) were “crowding around” Jesus and some of his disciples were becoming concerned and trying to “shoo away” what THEY likely thought were “bratty, little children” AWAY from Jesus, to which Jesus said the passage in Matthew 19:14 as a response to the disciples. Therefore, when Jesus was telling them to “suffer little children”, that just meant he was more or less telling them to ENDURE the children that were “crowding around” Jesus.]]

Now imagine Jesus Christ coming to Earth and seeing the many, many scores of women KILLING THEIR UNBORN BABIES IN ABORTION! How do you think he’d FEEL? Because remember, he’s the Author & Maker of ALL LIFE! Do you think Jesus Christ would be HAPPY about abortion? If you think yes, then you’re obviously NOT worshiping the Jesus of the bible but a different “Jesus” altogether (namely, Satan in disguise).

That’s what alot of people don’t get. You don’t have to BE a full-fledged “Satanist” to BE a “Satanist”, in Jesus’s eyes. Because for HIM, it’s pretty simple. You’re either FOR him or AGAINST him and if you’re not OBEYING THE BIBLICAL JESUS, then you’re worshiping a “false Jesus” (Satan) in disguise, rather you realize it or not. If you’re a “Christian” that thinks abortion is OK, you’ve been deceived by Satan and his demons. If you’re a “Christian” that thinks that premarital sex, divorce, gambling, homosexuality, transexualism/gay rights is ok, then you’ve been deceived by Satan and his demons. It’s THAT simple, folks!

EVERY time an unborn baby is killed during an abortion, SATAN REJOICES WITH GLEE! Many post-abortive women have also talked about this “New Age/goddess” type music playing in the background at abortion clinics. Why is that, do you think? It all goes back to the bible. Ancient Babylonian worship, MYSTERY BABYLON. It’s true! Do the research, folks! What you find will be SHOCKING!

So now that we’ve established that Planned Parenthood/ABORTION is AGAINST CHRIST, I can now hopefully get you to see how it’s PRO-SATAN. In fact, check out the following video and explain to me why they’re saying “Hail Satan” in the background if it’s NOT spiritual warfare. I bet you can’t! One person says it at 3:35. The Chanting begins at 5:15.

But it doesn’t even stop THERE……it goes even MUCH further than that……Satan can even trick post-abortive mothers and siblings of aborted babies by bringing them one of his demons “posing” as the dead’s baby soul! 

Folks, Satan will STOP AT NOTHING to DESTROY THE IMAGE OF GOD! Women that are “thinking about” or that DO go into abortion clinics are under SEVERE DEMONIC OPPRESSION and don’t even realize it! The very few women that walk OUT of abortion clinics (WITHOUT getting an abortion) are the only ones that are able to OVERCOME the lying, demonic spirits trying to get them to abort their precious babies! [THEREFORE, DON’T STOP PRAYING FOR WOMEN YOU SEE ENTER ABORTION CLINICS, PRO-LIFERS! YOUR PRAYERS & PRO-LIFE PROTESTS ARE MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!]

Many women are also pressured by their husbands and boyfriends to get an abortion, which makes me sick! For if a man’s not responsible enough to become a father, then he’s not responsible enough to have sex (rather it’s protected or not!) Same goes for women! Whatever happened to people taking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for their OWN actions? Are THOSE days long & gone?

But see, that’s what the problem is with today’s world: we’re now living in the “Me Generation”. Even many OLDER people have now taken to the “Me, Me, Me” type attitude of “entitlement” in today’s society and it’s TRULY beyond comprehension! I also can’t tell ya how many old ladies I’ve seen with dyed purple and pink hair, piercings, tattoos, & clothing that looks like a 20-year old would wear (what is this world coming to, folks?) 

Just like what Satan did with Eve, he’s now doing with the WHOLE of humanity (ESPECIALLY women!) And trust me, the REAL “War on Women” is THE WAR FOR WOMENS’ SOULS! If he can’t get a woman’s soul through sex, drugs, overeating, partying, gambling, etc., he’ll instead try to get it through lust, lack of faith, ABORTION, etc.

Cause for Satan, ABORTION is a 2-in-1 deal. He not only gets a dead baby and to profit off its “sold organs” but he can also snag the SOUL of an unrepentant woman (and sometimes even men – because, remember, “it takes two to tango”) who’s had an abortion! For Satan, it’s a win-win situation, and for a woman, it’s a DOUBLE LOSS! (Oftentimes, loss of her baby AND loss of her relationship, afterwards!)

In fact, social research has shown that about 85% or more of relationships END after there’s been an abortion. Why is that, do you think? Are some fathers ANGRY that their babies were aborted without their knowledge or consent? Or are OTHER fathers mad at the mothers of their unborn babies for being overly SAD about the abortion? Is the stress of losing an unborn baby just too much for BOTH parties involved? What is it?

Which brings me to my next point: ABORTION DESTROYS FAMILIES. It’s not JUST women abortion affects, but it can affect the husband/boyfriend and any consequent other children, too. Because remember, to a child, that was their “sibling”, not just any baby off the street! And to a husband or boyfriend that REALLY wanted that baby, it was THEIR baby too, not JUST the “woman’s baby!” Why do fathers of babies not have more rights in this country? Something’s wrong, here! In the animal world, most fathers are PROUD of their offspring and aren’t afraid to show it. Why can’t human fathers be more like so?

But now, it’s not just ABORTION Satan and his cohorts (both demonic and human) want but now it’s EUTHANASIA, too! There is SO LITTLE RESPECT FOR LIFE in today’s “death culture”. In fact, today’s society supposedly finds death “entertaining”. Just look at the channel entitled “Investigation Discovery” or the TV Show called “How To Get Away With Murder”. Think about what the name of the TV show IMPLIES. And what’s next? Reality TV shows OR drama shows called “My Proud Abortion” and/or “Killing Me”????? Believe me, it’ll probably only be a matter of time before such ungodly shows like that DO come to fruition. The world is just SO EVIL, these days! How do true people of God STAND IT? I sure can’t!

Plus I won’t even mention all the bible verses that go AGAINST abortion (these are just a few):

Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen” – Deuteronomy 27:25 [Planned Parenthood profiting off dead baby parts, anyone?]

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” – Jeremiah 1:5

“Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lordhath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name” – Isaiah 49:1

But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly” – Psalm 22:9-10

These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren” – Proverbs 6:16-19 {Note: Don’t pretty much ALL of these apply to Planned Parenthood? Wow…..}

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins” – Matthew 1:21

Not to mention that a baby’s heart starts beating at just 21 days and babies can feel pain by 8 weeks (or sooner)…..but please, women and young girls of today. THINK TWICE before ya get an abortion. Put it up for adoption if you don’t want to raise it. BECAUSE YOU WILL REGRET THAT UNGODLY ABORTION FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE AND NOTHING YOU CAN SAY OR DO WILL EVER, EVER, EVER BRING BACK YOUR POOR PRECIOUS BABY, ONCE YOU KILL YOUR BABY DURING AN ABORTION! SO REMEMBER THAT! 

In conclusion, I’d just like to say THIS: Abortion is NOT about Women’s “Rights” or Women’s “Healthcare”, it’s about WOMENS’ SOULS! Yes, you heard me right…..it’s a war for their SOUL! And BY TRICKING a woman into thinking it’s her RIGHT to kill her unborn child, what Satan’s ACTUALLY doing is TAKING A WOMAN’S *RIGHT* TO JOYFUL MOTHERHOOD *AWAY FROM HER!* Have you ever stopped to think about THAT, folks? Don’t be fooled! Abortion actually STRIPS a woman (AND the father of the baby) the “right” of joyful parenthood! And THAT, ladies & gentleman, is WOEFULLY WRONG! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Either A ‘Sin’ Or It Isn’t, There’s NO “Middle Ground”!!!

http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-university-employee-benefits-same-sex-marriage-grand-canyon-150077/#eK5KeRhCUPf72ZiC.99

Is it a sin or NOT a sin? The following story is a prime example of what happens when even just a “little” bit of sin is allowed to happen in a person’s life OR in what’s supposed to be a “Christian establishment”. For if the “gate” to sin is opened, even just “a little”, it won’t be long before those flood gates of sin are WIDE OPEN and sin/Satan comes to COMPLETELY OVERTAKE YOU (the Judeo-Christian individual) or the “Christian establishment”.

In the case up above, we have a CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY. In its official “mission statement”, they more or less say, “We believe marriage is between a man and a woman”. HOWEVER……one of their leading talking heads as of late, has more or less said that “In the CURRENT CULTURE WAR, it would be “politically incorrect” NOT to extend EMPLOYEE BENEFITS to “lawfully married gay couples”.

Wow! Just wow. There’s just no words, here……My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED at this guy’s statement for he’s been thoroughly deceived! For what’s legal in man’s eyes is NOT always legal in God’s eyes and it wouldn’t hurt for this Christian university (AND people as individuals) to remember that!

But see? That’s how Satan and his cronies operate. Subtlety……..like a “Trojan horse”, in other words. [And if you don’t know what I mean by “Trojan Horse”, google and research the “Battle of Troy”]. They’re not gonna come attacking all at once, usually. It’s more slowly. For they KNOW if they try to come spiritually attacking all at once, that a person’s or institution’s faith is gonna be strong enough at that point to withstand the attack. But……..if they start to come in more slowly, their “spiritual attacks” are less likely noticed BECAUSE it’s so subtle. Do you get where I’m going with this, people?

We’re living in a country today (here in America) where the very last “hold-outs” of God’s Word (Christian universities, churches, Messianic Jewish congregations, etc.) are slowly and silently being spiritually attacked by Satan and his cronies (both demonic and human). They do this in one of two ways: FEAR or EMOTIONS.

Oftentimes they’ll set a person or an institution up by placing an “overly-emotional” pro-homosexual advertisement or “gay person” or “gay child” in front of them! And the message will be like, “Poor Jimmy! He can’t help how he feels! He was born this way!” and that’s a lie from the pits of HELL! But oftentimes, the Christian person or institution doesn’t realize that! 

However, the few people or places that DO realize that (that the homosexual “I was born this way” argument’s a LIE from the pits of Hell?) Satan and his cronies got ANOTHER tactic and that’s FEAR. Fear of being labeled a “hater”, fear of losing one’s job, fear of losing one’s friend/family member, etc.

In fact, I’ve experienced this spiritual “battle” in my own life. For example, my family KNOWS my “biblical stance” on homosexuality (that it’s a grave sin and CONDEMNED in the bible). However, none of them are Christians. And so for Thanksgiving last year, they decided to invite a gay family member AND HIS BOYFRIEND over for Thanksgiving dinner! Because they thought FOR SURE that in-your-face-approach would emotionally undermine me to the point where that would make me “change my stance on homosexuality” but IF ANYTHING, it has only managed to make me EVEN MORE RESOLUTE on my BIBLICAL STANCE on homosexuality! 

[Now…..I don’t have anything personal against the gay family member or his boyfriend, on a basic human level. In fact, the “boyfriend” is a really nice human being. However, that being said, I don’t feel like I should be forced to sit through a holiday dinner with him and his boyfriend, while also being strongly encouraged by family NOT to speak up about the sin of homosexuality while at the holiday dinner table. For my “being silent” and “cordial” on the issue would only seem to paint the picture that I BIBLCALLY APPROVE of homosexuality, when I clearly don’t!]

And they’ve made no mention of if they’re gonna try to make the same thing happen this year but if so, you can bet your torso I will NOT be silent on the issue! That’s the problem here in America, today! Too many people are SILENT on the issue and for WHAT? It’s not gonna do any TRUE Christian/Judeo-Christian any good to be silent on the issue for the Lord Jesus Christ will hold US accountable for “every idle word” we speak. EVERY. IDLE. WORD.

So when the Day of Judgement comes around, and Jesus Christ asks each “Christian person” the fateful question, “Why did you remain silent on the sin of homosexuality in the face of all the lost souls around you?”, what will each person say? “I was afraid, Lord” or “I didn’t want to lose my job, Lord”? Neither of those excuses will fly with Jesus! He created and made all things and has the ability to shake the Earth and the waters with just the mere sound of his voice! In fact, HE SPOKE the universe into existence! He’s the Almighty Judge of ALL! [And believe me, that goes just as much for ME as it does for ANY “Christian”/Judeo-Christian!] 

Sadly, it probably won’t be long now before this “Christian university” changes its stance on marriage. For homosexual couples will come forth and say, “You guys are ALREADY giving us benefits for being lawfully married……….so if we’re lawfully married, perhaps you need to change your definition of what marriage IS!” And sadly, that Christian university probably WILL “bow to pressure” from the left. In fact, if you ask ME, they already HAVE! They will change their definition of marriage eventually, EVEN IF they don’t agree with it! A PRIME example of what happens when sin is “condoned” on ANY LEVEL!

And I don’t know much but I DO know THIS: That particular university (and many out there like it) have just personally invited the WRATH OF GOD on their “institutions”. Just like any individual person who’s now changed their stance in a similar manner, has just personally invited the WRATH OF GOD upon their VERY SOUL!

You think I’m kidding? I’ve personally experienced the Wrath of God MYSELF once, on a different subject! In my early 20’s, I experienced a thunder and lightning storm that was SO POWERFUL, that I thought the world was gonna end! And that was just a SMALL TASTE of the Lord’s Wrath! Imagine what it would be like for a person or an individual to experience the Lord’s ETERNAL WRATH! 

And I have to be totally honest, here. IF and WHEN this university “further compromises on its biblical morals” (the way it already HAS done), I’m not gonna be surprised in the least. For Satan’s goal right now is to work against the very last ‘HOLD-OUTS’ of those who don’t biblically agree with homosexuality! 

And the ones he CAN’T get to agree, on the SIN of homosexuality? Look out, folks! It’s gonna get UGLY! People are gonna lose their jobs…….and possibly more! We’re living in the Last Days, folks! This is called THE TIME OF TESTING! This is the time when the Lord Jesus is SEPARATING THE WHEAT FROM THE TARES! 

And I DO believe that what makes a person a TARE is ACCEPTANCE of homosexuality in ANY way or form! Many Christians say, “I don’t agree with homosexuality personally, but I DO believe in gay rights”. That’s a redundant, lukewarm statement! For in the Lord’s eyes, you’re either FOR his biblical law or you’re against it! And if you’re against it, (and care more about pleasing fellow men than pleasing God), you’re in a WORLD of spiritual trouble, folks! 

But let this serve as an example to you. DO NOT become like this university and “compromise your biblical values” for ANY REASON! I don’t care WHAT the reason is! I don’t even care if a “homosexual” family member comes to you, “whining” about their homosexuality and how they can’t help it, etc..etc., DO NOT invite the Wrath of God upon you by CONDONING or AGREEING with such sin, or by condoning “gay rights”.

For the “Gay Rights Movement”? It’s not about rights AT ALL, people, it’s about PROMOTION OF LUST/SODOMY and EROSION of the image of God (a man and woman in a TRADITIONAL marriage, and any possible children by NATURAL PROCREATION – married couples who have children by artificial means is another story). 

Don’t be like that “Christian” university, folks! STAND STRONG IN YOUR BIBLICAL CONVICTIONS ON SIN! Stay in God’s Word! Homosexuality’s an abomination and a sin and don’t let any person or institution tell you otherwise! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As Soon As One Starts To “Question” God/The Bible, The Devil Has Won!

The bible says that in the Last Days, there would be “scoffers” and many of those who “question its authority/authenticity”. Some of the most often-heard quotes are:

  • “Does the bible REALLY say that homosexuality/homosexual living is a sin?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that full-water immersion baptism is required?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that ALL people who aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life go Hell/Lake of Fire/Eternal Destruction?”
  • “Does the bible HONESTLY condemn pre-marital sex as sin?”
  • “Do I I REALLY have to love my neighbor as myself?”
  • “Is it TRULY necessary to forgive those who have hurt me?”
  • “Are celebrating the Lord’s BIBLICAL holidays and BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath TRULY REQUIRED by the Lord?”
  • “Is celebrating today’s “Paganized Christian” holidays REALLY an “abomination” unto the Lord?”

But see, that’s how the Devil operates! He tries to get us to DOUBT the Lord’s “authority” and the Lord’s “wrath” towards ALL things considered as sin/unrighteousness.

Many in today’s “culture” will say things like, “Yeah well, WHO is to say what’s considered righteous or not? WHO gets to be the judge?” But both of those questions have ALREADY been answered in the bible, quite honestly! The Lord Jesus himself created and made all things, HE determines what’s righteous or not, and HE and HE alone, is “the righteous judge” of ALL of mankind!

Just think for a moment. If you were the creator of a distinct piece of “art”, for example, you’d OWN that “art”, you’d have all the “bragging rights” of that “art”, and you and you alone (as the owner and creator of “said art”), would be able to be the “righteous judge” of that “art” and would get to decide what was good or bad about it and FOR it, right? So it is with Almighty God!

But therein lies the problem: AS SOON AS we start to “question the authority” of either the bible AND/OR Yeshua/Jesus Christ, we’re ALREADY being deceived by the Devil, in that very moment of “questioning!” Because remember that Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy! And his NUMBER ONE GOAL is to UNDERMINE THE AUTHORITY OF GOD/YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST AND THE BIBLE!

Basically, Satan the Devil doesn’t really care in WHAT way/ways he does that, just so long AS he does it! When a child of God believes every word of the bible, Satan gets really, really angry and frustrated and so, has to try to find subtle ways to try to GET that child of God to “question the bible”, “question Jesus” and more or less to “question everything”.

And one of his MOST POPULAR techniques for doing this is to focus on things such as THESE:

  • “So……only the RIGHTEOUS are gonna be saved while the unrighteous will be condemned and burned for eternity…….hhhmm……sounds “loving”……..how “loving” of the Most High to burn certain people alive for eternity……Is that TRULY loving? Would a true, LOVING God send people to Hell? Hhhmm……guess the Lord of the bible isn’t so loving afterall, is he?”
  • “You say or claim that Jesus is a LOVING God…….Okay then, why did he make you go through all of that hell in your life, then? Perhaps he’s forgotten about you down here or doesn’t like you so much, afterall!”
  • “Look at all the evil/unrighteous things you’ve done in your life! There’s NO WAY Jesus could ever forgive you for that!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and read your bible and pray! The Lord is ANGRY with you, beyond compare and nothing you say or do will change that!”
  • “The Lord’s gonna condemn you someday, you can COUNT on it!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and preach the gospel of Salvation to people or try to! Nobody’s gonna listen to you, anyways!”
  • “Is the Lord Jesus REALLY gonna send good-natured Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, non-believers and Jews to hell? Certainly he’ll judge them by their good-natured “hearts” and not their “religions”, right?”
  • “The Lord’s NOT REALLY gonna send people to hell……it’s just a scare-tactic, is all!”

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? But then again, it’s not just the children of God that he tries to work against, it’s EVERYONE! Rather people realize this fact or not! For NOT ONLY does Satan fight against people who WON’T submit to him in any way (think biblical-roots Christians/Messianic Jews, for example) but also against those that DO (Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, Satanists, Paganized Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.) How? He tries to undermine the Word of God/image of God to EVERYONE (Christian and non-Christian ALIKE!)

One of the most popular misconceptions floating around out there in modern-day “Christiandom” is that “Satan will never fight against someone who’s already his!” (spiritually speaking) and that’s a LIE! I’m gonna tell you why…….look at all the Satanic and/or Luciferian movie stars who get hooked on drugs and die young/etc.! You think Satan and his demons weren’t actively spiritually/mentally fighting against that person ALL ALONG FROM THE GET-GO, behind the scenes? THINK AGAIN, FOLKS!

Because truth be told, Satan fights JUST AS MUCH against Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans as he does any OTHER human group, including Christians! The brutal reality is that ALL OF HUMANITY is being battled against by Satan! There’s not ONE single human sole on this ENTIRE PLANET that’s not somehow being spiritually battled against by Satan, rather people realize that or not!

In fact, think back to the time you were a little kid and you felt “tempted” to lie or steal candy from the candy store, etc.? Even if you didn’t grow up in a “Christian home”…….or perhaps a time in the modern age when you ever felt “tempted” (even “minorly tempted” – even if you only felt “tempted” JUST ONCE) to cheat on your significant other….. You think Satan and his demons DIDN’T have something to do with that? OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE!

The brutal reality is that SATAN HATES MANKIND! Not just “SOME” of mankind, mind you, but ALL of mankind! Why? Because humans are made in the image of Almighty God! And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Satan HATES God’s image! And anything having to DO with “God’s image” (unborn babies in the womb and/or one man/one woman marriage, in which NATURAL PROCREATION occurs!)

Which brings to my mind the gay/transgender movement/argument. Transgenders will oftentimes say, “I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body” or “I feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body”, etc. But tell me! Since when do “FEELINGS” dictate natural God-given BIOLOGY? If a person “felt” like a horse, should we allow them surgery to “become a horse?”

Certainly you will see the total ridiculous in the “transgender argument”. Plus you will ALSO see that believing one is something that goes AGAINST one’s natural God-given biology is more like a MENTAL ILLNESS. And surely, digging a little deeper, you will also start to see that ALL mental illnesses are DEMONICALLY INDUCED! Now, there’s a total difference between DEMONIC POSSESSION and DEMONIC OPPRESSION!

[DEMONIC POSSESSION is where a person is COMPLETELY taken over by demons and forced to do their will, while DEMONIC OPPRESSION is where a person is only PARTIALLY taken over by demonic spirits (in their minds) and aren’t yet FULLY POSSESSED]. Therefore, when a demonically oppressed “transgender” person gets sex-change surgery, they THEN become demonically possessed BY the demon spirits that were originally “spiritually oppressing them” TO BEGIN WITH! Make sense?

Satan UTILIZES the gay/transgender argument to further his agenda of “undermining the Word of God”. And who or what is the Word of God? I’m glad you asked! The Word of God is JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! And the bible is the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD! Just like we humans are made in the IMAGE OF GOD! That’s not to say that WE are gods! That’s ONLY to say that we were made in God’s image! And Satan hates the image of God SO MUCH, that he’s willing to do anything to try to destroy it! And the gay/transgender movement is precisely one of the main ways he does that!

People think the gay/transgender movement is all about “gay/trans rights”. But what it REALLY is, at its VERY CORE, is a movement to UNDERMINE THE WORD OF GOD **AND** TO DESTROY THE IMAGE OF GOD! [The image of God being a biologically-born man and a biologically-born woman in a TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE and any children they NATURALLY produce!]

That’s why Satan loves gay marriage and “gay adoption” so much! BECAUSE IT UNDERMINES THE IMAGE OF GOD! (Hint: It’s got absolutely NOTHING to do with “rights”…….the only “rights” the “movement” is trying to procure is “THE RIGHT TO SIN” and the “RIGHT TO STAMP OUT THE BIBLE/CHRISTIAN WITNESSING ON THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY”. That’s ALL it really is, folks! WAKE UP!)

The only way that Satan can get a person (or in some cases, an entire “church”) to defy the IMAGE of God, is to UNDERMINE the WORD OF GOD! And the only way Satan can undermine the Word of God (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) is to destroy the Image of God! Do you see now how those two things work hand in hand together, in Satan’s master scheme of things?

Here’s the several ways Satan utilized to try to permanently destroy the Word of God AND the Image of God:

  1. The Gay/Transgender Movement
  2. World Religions
  3. Global Government (U.N., etc.)
  4. Media & Entertainment Industry
  5. “Newer bible translations” (NIV, ESV, etc.)
  6. Church denominations and SECTS (certainly they can’t ALL be right, correct?)
  7. The Roman Catholic Church
  8. Atheism/Satanism/Wicca/New Age Movement
  9. Etc.

But I ask you and leave you with THIS: The last time you felt yourself “questioning something” from the bible (as in, questioning the AUTHORITY of the bible on a certain subject), what was it that led you to question it? Was it someone’s video on Youtube? A movie? A pastor? A friend/family member/coworker? A book or news article?

What was it SPECIFICALLY that led you to start “questioning the bible’s authority on something?” Because any thing or person that leads you to “question the authority” on anything in the bible (and I do mean ANYTHING – Old OR New Testament) is NOT OF GOD! So remember that.

The next time you find yourself “questioning the bible” and its authority on something, ask yourself if that “questioning” is biblical. And if it’s not, please pray the following prayer:

“Almighty Yeshua/Jesus, please reveal to me specifically what it was that led me to question your word in the bible. And once you reveal that thing/person to me, please help me to remain strong and true to your word in the bible. Please protect me from questioning your word, ever, ever again. Amen”.
