“For When They Shall Say Peace & Security”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART TWO

As the field of artificial intelligence is taking off at breakneck speed, and as there’s been much talk lately of “the real-life Skynet” possibly coming about in today’s world, [please remember that Skynet was the company that produced The Terminator in the Terminator movies with ARNOLD S.], I’m now kind’ve wondering rather or not it’s possible that Revelation 13:15 could actually be REFERRING to such an outcome….as in, the ULTIMATE “terminator of terminators”, who’s created by the Antichrist but who is indwelt by Satan himself. (When I was reading a portion of Revelation 13 the other day, that’s what IMMEDIATELY came to my mind).

For Revelation 13:15 says that the Antichrist will “create an image to the beast”. That, to me, sounds like some sort of “Skynet-esque” type creation. And then, the verse further goes on to say that the Antichrist will “give life to the image”, so that it will speak. Does that NOT sound like the field of robotics/artificial intelligence to YOU? Because we know that the Antichrist can’t make a NATURAL CREATION. Therefore, he has to make an ARTIFICIAL ONE. And then the verse further goes on to say: “and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. And THAT, to me, sounds like the “Terminator of all Terminators”.

In fact, I kind’ve envision it (the Revelation 13:15 outcome) as a human-like Android, but with “god-like” super-human strength. I DON’T think it’ll be a simple “hologram/holographic” like image since we already have those and they’re “no big deal”. We also already have “speaking Androids” (which are freaky, btw but STILL very “basic” at this point). But this particular “image”, I think, will have to be something EXCEPTIONAL…….something that’s possibly never been seen before by mankind……hence, its “allure”.

So perhaps it’ll be the MOST human-like Android EVER….Or it could just be some sort of speaking statue made of gold. All WE know from the bible is that the “image will SPEAK” and be very life-like! And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, the Antichrist will probably make the image look somewhat like Jesus or a “prophet”. So just imagine this for a second, folks! Just imagine a human-like Android walking the Earth in the VISUAL FORM of Jesus that preaches to people an UNBIBLICAL GOSPEL!

(And if it’s not an Android-ish Skynet-ish type thing, then perhaps it’ll be a “walking, talking golden statue of Jesus” that the Antichrist will “bring to life” in order to deceive many into thinking it’s the “biblical Jesus” when it’s NOT! OR….it could be a moving “Android” of the “Virgin Mary”, etc! DON’T BE DECEIVED, FOLKS!) 

Anyways, just some spiritual food for thought. I’m not saying that every other Christian out there has to agree with my interpretation but I was just pondering all this the other day as I started to think more deeply about artificial intelligence and its long-term “spiritual implications” upon mankind.

Revelation 13:16-17 further goes on to say: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [And in the bible, the word “man” means MANKIND, so that would include women & children as well].

So we know THREE things are gonna happen when the Antichrist comes on the scene. 1) He will create an “image” of the beast (which is Satan). And 2) He will give “life” to the image and make it “speak” and also that 3) ALL who refuse to worship the “image of the beast” or the “number of his name” will be KILLED.

So what can we gather from this? If we put two and two together, it would most certainly seem like taking the MARK of the beast and worshiping the LIVING IMAGE (Android?/Terminator-like thing?) of the beast are one and the same. For worshiping the “living/speaking image of the beast” seems to require taking his “Mark” at the same exact time.

But also at the same time, it’s also an ECONOMIC thing, for NO person on the Earth will be able to buy or sell without this “Mark”. And the book of Revelation warns that WHOMEVER takes this “Mark” will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY!

But one thing’s for certain: robots/artificial intelligence will DEFINITELY become smarter than humans someday, no doubt about it. The only question is, WHEN? Elon Musk’s solution is for us to “merge” with machines. Steven Hawking’s solution is for mankind to “attempt” to inhabit the cosmos. But Elon Musk’s idea chills me to the core when I think more in depthly about the Mark of the Beast and/or the image of the beast. As for Mr. Hawking’s idea? No matter WHERE you go or WHAT you do in the universe, you CAN’T run away from Jesus Christ, for he hails from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING! From every single corner of the cosmos to the depths of the sea!

[As a side note, the bible says that the BIBLICAL Jesus is going to return to Earth from the clouds of heaven. So I DO think it’s highly possible that HAARP/Project Bluebeam will try to create a “false Jesus hologram in the clouds of the sky”, in order to try to deceive many! So….how can we distinguish between a so-called fake Jesus “‘hologram” in the sky and the REAL Jesus? The REAL Jesus will rapture up all his Christian saints! Therefore, if an “image” of Jesus is just sitting there in the clouds of they sky and NOT doing anything (i.e. NOT rapturing UP Christian saints into the clouds), you can pretty much KNOW it’s a false, hologramized “image” of Jesus!] 

Nevertheless, I was ALSO wondering the other day if any other Christians out there thought there might be a possible link between Revelation 13:15 and artificial intelligence. It’s certainly interesting to think about, especially in these here End Times that we’re currently living in. And the more I learn about artificial intelligence, the more I don’t like it and see it as a very “dark”, spiritual thing. It (A.I.) is no doubt being promoted in today’s world as a “good thing” (the “family-friend robot”, the “companion robot”, the “assistant robot”, etc.) but believe me, it’s not as “good” as it seems! There is a MUCH darker spiritual picture to the story here, folks!

They’ve now started to create the concept of “bionic insects and animals”, “sex robots”, etc! So then it’s like, okay, WHERE do they draw the line? When is too far, TOO far? Because for THEM, there likely IS no “too far!” It’s almost like some of the elite A.I. scientists of today are saying to themselves AND to the world: “No God, we can do better”. It’s quite chilling, actually.

In the following video, Pastor Billy Crone gives an excellent presentation of the LONG-TERM DANGERS OF A.I./RISE OF THE MACHINES:

 

 

Why ALL Statues are IDOLS (Biblically-Speaking)

Folks, there’s most recently been a controversy in which extreme leftists have wanted to TEAR DOWN all CONFEDERATE statues, based on RACE, ALONE! 

And while many Christians out there in the South are PROTESTING taking down the statues, there’s a MUCH BIGGER picture here at play, folks and that’s THIS:

ALL “STATUES” ARE **IDOLS!** Yes, you heard me. **IDOLS**. How we know this? Let us go no further than the 2nd commandment in the bible, which states the following:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” – [Exodus 20: 4-5]

Okay, so let us define what a “graven image” is, biblically-speaking. It is simply an “image made by the hands of man”. And that “image” (in order to be classified as an “idol”, biblically speaking) must represent a thing or a person that is under the Earth, on the Earth or above the Earth.

Therefore, ALL STATUES comply with all the categories of an IDOL (biblically-speaking):

  1. It’s an “image” or “representation” made with mans’ hands
  2. It’s an “image” or “representation” of a person/thing that’s under/on/above the Earth
  3. Mankind often “marvels” over such “statues” and “takes picture of it” or with themselves BY it, which qualifies as a form of “worship”, according to the bible. Because remember: to “marvel” over something is to “worship it”, biblically-speaking

Therefore, I think ALL STATUES should come down. Not so much because of the race or history thing, but because of the IDOL THING! Think about how many Catholics, for instance, BOW DOWN to “statues” of “saints” (DEMONS) or The “Pope” or what have ya. Many people say that statues of Catholic saints are IDOLS, yet statues of historical figures are NOT.

But HOW is that, folks? How is a man-made STATUE of an historical figure ANY DIFFERENT than all the statues of Catholic saints? Don’t people (in a sense) bow down to and WORSHIP statues of historical figures by TAKING PICTURES OF IT or taking pictures of themselves RIGHT BY IT? Think about it, folks! 

I’m honestly surprised that more Christians out there haven’t picked up on this and started more of a “fuss” about this. When the VERY FIRST “statues” (i.e. IDOLS) were put up of historical figures, how much Christians out there weren’t PROTESTING THEM, THEN? Answer: Because they were SPIRITUALLY BLIND! 

Satan had it SO EASY on this, folks! One little statue HERE, one little statue THERE and many Christians were NONE THE WISER! How sad, folks! How PITIFUL! What a SPIRITUAL SHAME that more Christians have not been able to open up their eyes and SEE THIS SIMPLE FACT!

Many Christians today even want to CLING to those statues as “vestiges of human history”. And while it’s true that human history should never be forgotten (lest it be repeated, once again), I just don’t think that clinging to STATUE IDOLS is the way to go about it, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING! 

Most of us wouldn’t want or have idols in our HOMES! So why should we want any STATUE IDOLS in the PUBLIC SQUARE? Think about it, folks! A 10 commandments monument is ONE thing! A STATUE (i.e. GRAVEN IMAGE IDOL) of an historical figure is another thing, altogether! 

And folks, it’s NOT JUST statues of historical figures that are IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES (the statue of liberty’s DEFINITELY AN IDOL – like it or not), but it can also be things like statues of cats, dogs, fish, ANYTHING. It doesn’t necessarily have to BE a statue of a “Buddha” or the like to BE an “idol”, BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING. Do you read me on this, folks?????

Anyways, it just breaks my heart and makes me so, so sad that many Christians are BLIND as to exactly WHAT an idol is (it’s heck alot more than just a Buddha or a wax museum figurine of somebody famous). When are people gonna open up their eyes and see this fact? 

I pray that if you’re a Christian/Messianic Jew who doesn’t yet see the BIBLICAL TRUTH about statues, that you will, SOON. I also pray that ALL statues will start to come down, soon. Again, not for the LIBERAL REASONS stated but for BIBLICAL REASONS! Cause then, and only then might almighty God have just a little more “patience” with this nation if we start tearing down statues (IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES) for all the RIGHT reasons (BIBLICAL REASONS) instead of all the WRONG reasons!

Folks, we (America) are a nation of IDOL WORSHIPERS (statues at every which corner/public square), MURDERERS (abortion, etc.), WHOREMONGERS (homosexuality/transgenderism/pre or extra marital sex), BLASPHEMERS and THIEVES. But even if we (as a nation) were to get rid of just ONE of those things (for all the RIGHT biblical reasons), the Lord would be partially pleased. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE? 

But yet, the bible says that won’t happen anytime soon. America will have to FALL TO ITS KNEES before many of its own citizens will repent. And EVEN THEN, many will have a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART towards Jesus and his commands in the bible!

In fact, I even now wonder if Bonnie Rait’s song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was some sort of pre-prophetic attempt to “make fun” of the fact that MANY, MANY PEOPLE in the Last Days will HAVE a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART TOWARDS JESUS? Just a thought, folks…..

Remember how all the ancient Greeks and Romans had STATUES at every corner and all over their “public squares?” Today’s times aren’t so different, now, are they? True, people might not PHYSICALLY bow down and “worship” the statues of historical figures as in, Oh President Lincoln, I worship thee GREATLY, but that’s because people do so IN THEIR HEARTS! Like I said, they take PICTURES of the “statues” (graven images) or take pictures of THEMSELVES by the “statues”…..

And you don’t think Jesus Christ considers that a form of “worship”, folks? Trust me, he considers it WORSHIP…….And that applies EVEN TO STATUES OF HIMSELF…….He doesn’t even want us “worshiping” or “marveling” over statues of HIM…….Therefore, do you REALLY think he’d want any of us “worshiping” or “marveling” over a statue of historical figures or the like? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

[NOTE:  hope this post has both enlightened and informed you about THE TRUTH about all “STATUES”. May you be deceived by Satan and his demons NO LONGER! Amen.] 

 

 

 

 

 

The BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS Of The Total Solar Eclipse

Seems everybody and their grandmother is excited for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE about to happen on Monday, August 21, 2017! There’s gonna be many parties, music, food, etc.! Plus there’s gonna be SO MANY AMERICANS gathered AT the “path of totality” that I’m almost beginning wonder if any possible “terrorist attacks” might happen along the path of totality, etc.

But THAT thought aside, what are the BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of such an event? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” – Luke 21:25-26

 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; AND LET THEM BE FOR **SIGNS**, and for seasons, and for days, and years” – Genesis 1:14

Translation? God created the sun, moon and stars…..not ONLY to divide night from day but FOR SIGNS, etc.

Matthew 16:4 states: “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas {Jonah}. And he left them, and departed”

So what IS the “SIGN OF JONAH?”, some people may be wondering. For those not familiar with the prophet Jonah, Jonah was a prophet during the times of the Old Testament. And Nineveh was considered to be one of the bible’s most sinful cities (more sinful than Sodom & Gomorrah? I’m not sure but pretty sinful, from the bible’s description of it).

And the Lord sent Jonah to preach there, to WARN the people of the city of Nineveh to REPENT of their sins, before it was too late and their city was doomed to DESTRUCTION! And Jonah VERY RELUCTANTLY went there to preach. And many bible scholars believe that a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE happened at Nineveh (in order to convince the people to Nineveh to repent, which they DID!)

Here, down below, the following two videos give more detailed BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017!

And what’s REALLY prophetically interesting is that YEAR YEARS LATER, ANOTHER total solar eclipse will pass THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, thus making a big “X” over America, as the following image demonstrates:

X OVER AMERICA

Furthermore, what’s REALLY INTERESTING is that the very “center” of the X is in the bulls-eye of THE NEW MADRID FAULT ZONE and is also where the Mississippi and Ohio rivers CONVERGE! That should tell us something, folks!

Joel 3:2 in the Old Testament even hints at the fact that GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH ANY NATION THAT DIVIDES/TRIES TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF JERUSALEM:

“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land“.

So……..exactly WHAT is the Lord trying to TELL US by the SIGNS of the TWO solar eclipses within the period of 7 YEARS (“7” being a VERY PROPHETIC number) and with the REVELATION 12 SIGN (September 23, 2017?), which is just 33 days later (“33” ALSO being a VERY BIBLICALLY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER – Jesus was 33 when he was crucified on the cross, etc.!)

It’s a WARNING to us to REPENT because THE SOON-COMING DAY OF THE LORD WILL SHORTLY BE AT HAND! And contrary to what most people believe, the “day of the Lord” is NOT the Rapture! Instead, is a day of GREAT WRATH!

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is **A DAY OF WRATH**, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towersAnd I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord‘s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land

Zephaniah 1:14-18

In fact, in Luke 21:7 [New Testament, Book of Luke, Chapter 21, Verse 7], and in Matthew 24:3 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24, Verse 3], the disciples privately came to Jesus (immediately AFTER the “Sermon on the Mount” – which took place in Matthew, chapters 5 to 7)) with a question about the END TIMES and the signs of Jesus’s SOON RETURN (UPON THE EARTH):

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” – Matthew 24:7

 

And the next SEVERAL verses of Matthew 24, Jesus says the following:

 

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

 

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

 

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”

 

[[[When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 

 

And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE“]]].

 

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”

 

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

 

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

 

In other words, THE ELECT means those people that not only BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ but that OBEY HIM in any and all things! Therefore, THE ELECT (the true, OBEDIENT servants of Jesus Christ) will be taken from the Earth during THE RAPTURE while all the DISOBEDIENT SOULS – including all the LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS – will be left behind to deal with GOD’S WRATH UPON THE ENTIRE EARTH! Jesus further goes on in the chapter to state the following in verses 32-51 of Matthew 24:

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

 

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

 

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

 

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

 

Translation? Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to Salvation and the ONLY WAY to Eternal Life! Anything OUTSIDE of Jesus Christ (including Atheism/Agnosticism) is a LIE that will send an unrepentant person to the LAKE OF FIRE! (“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15)

So in other words, many people will go to see this “eclipse”, think it’s “just coincidence” and not GIVE a care about its ETERNAL BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS! And so, BECAUSE they don’t care and/or see the BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE of End Times events & “celestial signs” (eclipses, etc.), they will not REPENT OF THEIR SINS and/or see a NEED to be “saved from their sins” and thus, NOT be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and THUS, WILL someday be thrown into the Lake of Fire! A place that Jesus describes as ETERNAL TORMENT (“weeping and gnashing of teeth”). Gnashing of teeth means that a person’s in SO much pain, that they start GRINDING THEIR TEETH IN SHEER PAIN/TERROR!

But folks: one thing’s for sure! GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICAN, HAS **BEEN** ON AMERICA FOR QUITE SOME TIME AND WILL **CONTINUE** TO STAY ON AMERICA UNTIL SHE REPENTS OF HER DEEDS! But alas, the nation of America will NOT repent of its deeds (transgender men invading girls/womens’ facilities and/or womens’ sports, gay marriage, gay adoption, strip clubs, drinking, homosexuality/promiscuity, abortion, gambling, the drug trade, etc.)

And so BECAUSE America won’t repent of her deeds, America shall be DESTROYED! In fact, America’s SPIRITUAL STATE right now reminds me of “The Queen of Revelation 18:7:

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow

 

Thnk about it, folks! America is likely THE MOST ARROGANT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! She thinks she is the largest, strongest, fastest, most prosperous, most powerful & resilient country in the world! But alas…….the Lord’s Wrath is now upon her! And she, as a nation, is readying herself for A GREAT BIBLICAL FALL! 

So where is your heart today, folks? Is it with Jesus Christ & righteousness? If not, WHY? And is 5 minutes of pleasure worth an eternity in hell/the lake of fire? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! 

There’s no doubt in my mind that America WILL fall……it’s just a matter of HOW and WHEN! We’re lucky that the Lord loves us all enough to give us ONE LAST SIGN before his FULL WRATH begins! The total solar eclipse is a sign of his wrath……….a sign of his soon return to the Earth……..a sign to REPENT of all our sins…….and a sign that we had BETTER get all our houses in order!!!!!!!!!! There’s not much time left, folks! We’re living in the last SECONDS to MILI-SECONDS of human history!!!!!! 

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, ‘REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!” – Matthew 4:17

 

And lastly, the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE also means, prophetically and biblically, that THE SOUL OF AMERICA (as a WHOLE) has a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART OVER JESUS AND HIS WORDS! Meaning, America (as a whole) and even many Americans (as a whole), now have A HEART THAT’S TOTALLY CLOSED OFF FROM JESUS! [Side-note: Is Bonnie Raitt’s 80-90’s song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” making pre-prophetic FUN of that fact?]. And so that’s WHY the Lord’s using the BIBLICAL SIGN of a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE…..in order to visually show the fact that our hearts (as a whole) have become BLACK AND HARDENED towards Jesus and FULL OF TOTAL DARKNESS!  

Therefore, REPENT! Before it’s too late for you! Because remember that the door to Salvation is CLOSING……..in fact, it’s ECLIPSING! JESUS’S PATIENCE TOWARDS SALVATION FOR MANKIND IS NOW *ECLIPSING!* And once the door to Salvation CLOSES, it closes PERMANENTLY! Please remember that IN the days of Noah, people were eating, drinking and being merry and being “unaware” until the flood came and took them all away! So it is with TODAY’S GENERATION! People are SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND UNAWARE! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Workplace Is A Spiritual Battlefield!

Work. It’s where a good majority of Americans spend the majority of their time. And each individual workplace has a “culture” (both corporately and individually). And nine times out of 10, that particular “culture” is NOT conducive in any way towards Christianity/Jesus/the bible! Let me number the ways!

Out of any given “secular” workplace (and I’m excluding the Christian workplaces, here), only about 5% of employees or less are likely “Christian” in any way, shape or form. And OF that 5% or less that are Christian, only about 1-2% would qualify as “true Christians”. Therefore, the odds are HIGHLY STACKED against any one person who truly desires to live the Lord’s way! 

In fact, several things happen in the workplace that go AGAINST the bible:

1). People like to “gossip” about one another. And if you don’t participate in the “workplace gossip”, people look down on you as though you’re some type of “holier than though Christian.”

2). Christians (as a whole) aren’t allowed to talk about their Christian faith in the workplace. And if they do, they’ll likely be reprimanded in some way, shape or form. Yet, coworkers who are NOT Christian are likely pretty much allowed to mock Christianity to the hilt and NOT get reprimanded for it in any type of way. 

3). Many workplaces are now starting to embrace “liberal theology” with “gender-neutral bathrooms” and the like. If a Christian employee tries to protest, they’re oftentimes fired or formally written up due to “being discriminatory” towards “gender-neutral people”, or at the very least, laughed at and ignored.

4). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) are CONSTANTLY keeping secret (even unconscious) tabs on “Christian coworkers” just waiting for them to “slip up”, somehow & just waiting to see how THOSE Christian coworkers live up to the bible’s standards AND to workplace scrutiny (it’s TRUE!) They’re particularly mindful of things such as if a Christian coworker is ever “late” to work, if they take too long for their lunch break or 15min break, OR if they cuss or use strong language when irritated or angry. 

5). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) will oftentimes try to “tempt” Christian coworkers into behaving or thinking badly OR will “gloat” about their non-Christian faith in an attempt to “silence” the Christian or “shame them”.

6). Satan himself will oftentimes use CUSTOMERS/CLIENTS/PATIENTS/RENTERS etc. (whatever the symbiotic role is) to get on our nerves, make us irritated & angry, tempt us to gossip about them to coworkers, tempt us TO act out in anger against them, etc.

7). Satan himself (and his demonic spirits working under him) will oftentimes tempt us to do “dishonest practices” (ex: a doctor/lawyer overcharging the patient/client, a person putting down on the time clock sheet that they were on time to work even if they weren’t, a person lying on temp logs if the temperature wasn’t hot enough/were forgotten if working in food service, putting all the trash/crumbs in a room underneath the bed and/or not changing the sheets if a housekeeper, you get the idea……..)

8). There is this IMMENSE PRESSURE (even for those who ARE born again Christians) to “fit in” by going to parties/workplace functions, by watching the latest movies/TV shows, by listening to the latest music, by trying some of the latest drugs/alcohol to hit the market, etc. Most people don’t want to be seen as a complete “square”, right? It’s human nature to want to be “liked” and Satan uses that against us in the workplace, EXCEEDINGLY! 

9). All OTHER faiths are promoted and it’s HIGHLY DISCOURAGING to the Christian. This puts SO MUCH pressure on the Christian (in the workplace setting) to NOT talk about their Christian faith at all.

10). Even amidst all clamour & opposition, those born-again Christians who DO actively choose to the cling to the bible’s principles are oftentimes mocked & ridiculed to SCORN by many of those in the workplace who do NOT share their love of Christ & of righteousness! 

11). When nearly 95% or more of people in the workplace DON’T love or worship Jesus, it becomes really, really, really hard to try to continue to live by the bible’s precepts. Cause like it or not, non-Christian type of behavior DOES seem to rub off on Christian people after awhile. Need proof? Look no further than the case of “Lot”, Abraham’s nephew in the book of Genesis or also how the Hebrew Israelites starting behaving after their “captivity in Babylon”. Our “social & work environment” affects us folks, rather we like it or not! 

12). If ever a born-again Christian DOES try to talk about their faith with a coworker or starts silently praying for one of them, it’s almost like Satan & the dark side pick up on the fact IMMEDIATELY and IMMEDIATELY tries to make grounds to thwart it! Example: a customer will walk up (in food service or retail), a manager will swing by and “distract” by asking for/saying such n’ such, that particular coworker will suddenly seem to go “stark raving mad” (because remember it’s the demonic spirit that’s living INSIDE of them that’s ENRAGED at the gospel), etc. 

13). Satan will oftentimes utilize “temptations of the flesh” to get a born-again Christian in the workplace to fall. And sadly, he’s oftentimes very, very successful at it! 

14). Satan will also use his “followers” to try to “tempt others away from the faith, COMPLETELY” (oftentimes using the tactics called “the emotional response” – as in – “hey, aren’t transgender people, people TOO? Shouldn’t they have “rights”, just like everyone else?” and so-called “rational reasoning” – as in – “So…..ask yourself this…..does it REALLY seem rational that Eve came across a TALKING SNAKE in the Garden of Eden? Come on now, lets get REAL, here!” while ALSO simultaneously repeating the lies of Evolution over and over again in an attempt to make a Christian lose their faith in Creationism/Genesis. 

15). Some non-Christians have even taken to “threats” and “intimidation” of their Christian coworkers (no joke!) In fact, there’s likely been many, many cases of “workplace-related witchcraft” going on against every single, true born-again “Christian”. That’s what they do in workplaces these days, folks. They comb over your social media. They try to figure out your “personal view on things”. They try to figure out your last name, where you live, what types of foods you eat, what types of TV programs you watch, etc. They single you out. And once you’re “singled out” by them, look out. Things could quickly get very ugly, spiritually speaking! Especially if you’re not TRULY grounded in your faith in Jesus! 

16). “Transgender/homosexual/non-binary” employees serve TWO purposes and two purposes, ONLY: A) To try to FORCE workplaces into accepting “gender ideology” and also B) To try to FORCE OUT any promotion of Christianity or a Christian coworker’s right to preach the gospel (ESPECIALLY the part of the gospel that says that homosexuality/transgenderism is a sin)

17). Most workplaces do NOT allow a Christian worker to openly pray or “openly” wear a cross necklace around their neck, etc. Yet, many workplaces now accept a man “wearing lipstick” or a woman dressed as a man or even a person with multiple piercings, oddly colored hair & tattoos all over their body. 

18). Many workplaces do not allow bibles (even during lunch breaks or 15min breaks) because it can “incite violence/complaints/protests” on the part of non-believers. 

19). Complaints of workplace harassment made by Christians (rather verbal, physical, emotional and/or sexual) are oftentimes ignored & swept under the rug, as though they “never happened”. 

20). Christians are oftentimes fired or severely reprimanded for “paying for a customer’s meal”, “offering free lawyer/doctor/medical services to those in need”, etc.

21). VERY, VERY RARELY does a workplace let a Christian/Messianic Jew off for the “biblical Sabbath” every week OR for “biblical holidays” and if they DO, it does NOT come without “consequence”. The Christian/M.J. will oftentimes be “punished” for it somehow, in the workplace. Why? Because Satan and his demons are ANGRY at the Christian for trying to live their lives totally around Christ! The demons CAN’T STAND IT! Satan CAN’T STAND IT! They’re ANGRY with any true Christians because they know their time is short!

(In fact, Satan and his demons will even try to DIRECTLY attack Christians at work, even coming THROUGH or speaking THROUGH their coworkers! The ONLY way to defeat a demon is in the mighty name of Jesus! Remember that!) 

Folks, this is the world we’re living in, today. First, the battlefield starts in the mind. And then, it comes to the home. And thirdly, at work. But out of these three, the spiritual battlefield that rages on in the workplace is THE STRONGEST of these three battles. Why? Because it has the MOST IMPACT. It is basically “temptations GALORE”……

Temptations are MUCH EASIER to beat at the home than in the workplace, am I right? Especially if a bible or a poster of the 10 commandments is close by. And temptations that begin in the mind can more easily be defeated by praying in the name of Jesus. But temptations in the workplace are MUCH, MUCH HARDER to overcome since a Christian must CONSTANTLY stay focused on work and “the current task at hand”. It’s very, very hard for a Christian to mentally concentrate enough TO pray in the workplace setting, am I right? 

Some Christians go INTO the workplace every day DETERMINED to try to share their faith,etc. and then, one hour later after arriving at work, are EMBITTERED, ANGRY, RESENTFUL, STRESSED, etc. So what happened? What happened between the time they left their house/apartment that morning, to an hour after arriving at work? Answer: Temptation happened! For NEVER is the temptation to get frustrated/angry and/or to “gossip” stronger than in the WORKPLACE of all places, am I right? 

The workplace is a NESTING GROUND for Satan & his demons, folks, it really IS! And sadly, ALOT of Christians don’t see that! They see it as some sort of “persecution” but many of them are “spiritually asleep” and do NOT see the “workplace” for what it REALLY, TRULY IS: a SPIRITUAL BATTLEFIELD! 

Satan & his demons are out for blood, folks! Spiritual blood! And the less informed a Christian is, in the work setting, the more hold he has on them! Does that scare you, folks? It SHOULD! 

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” – Ephesians 6:12 

Spiritual warfare is something that Christians RARELY talk about today and it’s just RAGING in the workplaces and in the churches today! RRRAAAGGGGIIINNNNNGGGGG! How do more people not see this fact? In fact, the ONLY REASON that churches AND workplaces today are now catering to the RADICAL LGBT ACTIVISTS?

It is BECAUSE many of the Christians in churches and workplaces today are NOT and WERE NOT already actively engaging in SPIRITUAL BATTLE! And BECAUSE they don’t have their “spiritual shields” on and their “spiritual swords” at the ready, BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING! BAD *SPIRITUAL* THINGS! Because BELIEVE ME, any workplace/church, and I do mean *ANY* WORKPLACE/CHURCH (no matter WHAT type of workplace/church it is) that PROMOTES OR ACCEPTS *ANY* type of ungodly theology (be it gender ideology or what have ya), is now considered a CURSED WORKPLACE (AND/OR CHURCH) in the eyes of God, like it or not!

Just because a huge bolt of lightning didn’t take out the workplace or church yet doesn’t mean anything. For the Lord is likely holding back his Wrath ON those workplaces for the sake of the “few spiritually pure” that work there. And how much longer those “pure’ workers will continue to work there is both up to them and up to Jesus. 

Because my guess is once those few “pure” workers are gone, those particular “LGBT-affirming” workplaces will be toast, one way or another. In fact, I wonder what the long-term future will be for all LGBT-affirming workplaces. It will be interesting to watch, in the near future. SO MANY businesses are “going under” these days and I’m beginning to wonder if ONE of the reasons SO MANY businesses are going under IS due to God’s Wrath? Just a thought? 

 

 

 

GENE-EDITING & IVF, ETC. ARE AN ABOMINATION, PART B

And besides: there’s many, MANY cases in the bible where women conceived NATURALLY in their old age and/or IN their times of infertility. Let us examine all SEVEN of those cases! (And there might possibly be more but these 7 cases are the ones that most Christians recall from the bible…….)

Old Testament:

1). HANNAH – Hannah was “barren” and like Sarah, was “constantly tormented” by Elkanah’s 2nd “fertile” wife, Peninnah, since Hannah had no children. Hannah’s husband, Elkanah, even lamented to her in 1 Samuel: 1-8 “Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?“. However, Hannah goes up to the Temple to pray for a child and a Levite priest at the temple blesses her & prays that the Lord will “grant her her petition” and that’s exactly what happened. And thus, the PROPHET SAMUEL was born!

2). SARAH – As stunningly “beautiful” as Sarah was, she was barren. And like Hannah, was “constantly tormented” by what had become Abraham’s 2nd wife, Hagar the “fertile” Egyptian. Genesis 15:2-3 shows us Sarah’s husband, Abraham, grieving over having no heir: And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir“. But in Genesis 21:1-8, Sarah conceived and bore ISAAC! 

3). REBEKAH – Rebekah, the bible records, was stunningly beautiful but “barren”. Genesis 25:21 states: “And Isaac intreated [that means prayed to] the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated [prayed to] of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived”. Rebekah bore the biblical twins ESAU & JACOB!

4). RACHEL – Like Sarah & Rebekah, Rachel, the bible recorded, was ALSO stunningly beautiful………but also barren. She was also the *favorite wife* of Jacob. When the Lord originally saw that Rachel’s sister Leah was unloved, he opened Leah’s womb (while closing up Rachel’s – atleast for that time being) and Leah bore SIX SONS + A DAUGHTER! However, Rachel then became EXTREMELY jealous of her sister Leah & then demanded that Jacob give HER children, also!

Genesis 30:1-2 records the following: And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die!” And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

Genesis 30:22-24 then states, And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach: And she called his name Joseph; and said, The Lord shall add to me another son”. And she thus gave birth to JOSEPH & then later, to BENJAMIN! 

5). JOCHEBED – She married her own NEPHEW in the Old Testament (BEFORE it was forbidden for aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews to marry). So this, to ME anyways, suggest that she was slightly older in age than her nephew, Amram. Which would ALSO likely mean that she likely conceived pass the typical biblical child-bearing age to birth MOSES, AARON & MIRIAM!

6). MONOAH’S WIFE in Judges 13: 2-3 which says, And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son”. 

Judges 13:24-25 then records: And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the Lord blessed him. And the Spirit of the Lord began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol”. 

She was the one who gave birth to the exceptionally-strengthed, long-haired SAMSON!

New Testament:

7). ELIZABETH – The SAME exact Holy Spirit that conceived a son in Mary (a virgin) was the same exact Holy Spirit that allowed Elizabeth to “conceive in her old age”. The archangel Gabriel informed Mary of this in Luke 1:36 when he stated, “And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren“. Elizabeth ended up bearing JOHN THE BAPTIST!

So conclusion? It is MUCH, MUCH better to “wait on God/Jesus” than to PREMATURELY take matters into one’s own hands, as both Rachel & Sarah had witnessed! (Note:”Rachel’s son by her handmaiden, Dan, later became the father of a “condemned” tribe of Israel while Sarah’s son by her slave, Hagar, later went on to CRUELLY mock Sarah & Isaac when Isaac was a baby!)

And besides: Jesus is a GOD OF MIRACLES! Therefore, if he could provide ancient biblical infertile women with children, He could ALSO theoretically provide NATURAL CHILDREN for TODAY’S infertile women!

But then again, it all goes back to Jesus’s will for people’s lives. Some people (for whatever reason in Jesus’s eyes) just weren’t meant to have children. For some, it might be for genetic reasons (a person might have a terrible disease that runs in the family such as alcoholism/schizophrenia or it might kill the mother outright to carry a child for 9 months). For others, it might be for SPIRITUAL REASONS. ….

It is SO easy to truly focus on Christ when we got NO outside distractions (or people) demanding our attention. But yet, it is SO HARD to focus on Christ when we DO have things such as spouses/S.O.’s or children/nieces/nephews/grandkids that distract us from Christ (believe me, I know).

Also: Gay couples use IVF/surrogacy for various purposes. Therefore, if a “medical technique” allows gay couples to have children, then SHOULD that same medical technique be touted as “OK” or “Acceptable” among today’s BIBLICAL-ROOTS/BORN-AGAIN Christians? It stands to reason. IVF, surrogacy and “gene-editing” (atleast to ME, anyways) are like one and the same. It’s basically “manipulating genes/science” to “bend to one’s will”, PLAYING GOD…..AND….turning babies into a $$$$$$ COMMODITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But in reality, we, as Christians, should instead be bending to the Lord Jesus Christ’s will, instead of our own. Because truth be told, we humans HAVE NO PLACE manipulating genes/embryos to OUR personal will! That’s SELFISH! In fact, I’ll even take this a step further. A “genetically-modified ANYTHING” (save for organ/blood donation) is outside of the Lord Jesus Christ’s will! It’s TRUE!

Everything from PURPOSELY genetically-modified genes [EXCLUDING ORGAN/BLOOD DONATION – WHICH I’M SURE JESUS CONSIDERS VERY NOBLE, ESPECIALLY IF IT HELPS SAVES THE LIVES OF OTHERS] to genetically-modified FOOD is **OUTSIDE** of the Lord Jesus’s will! Why? Because it messes with HIS natural design! And ANYTHING (and I do mean, ANYTHING) outside of HIS (the Lord Jesus’s) natural DNA design (be it food or otherwise) is AN ABOMINATION! Why? Because it’s like personally saying to God: “We can do better!”

Because remember folks, genetically-modified doesn’t just apply to HUMAN GENES, it can also apply to FOOD GENES, as well! Is it any wonder that many of today’s “GMO’s” cause CANCER in humans and animals and also that MANY upon MANY of today’s “genetically-modified crops” are ALSO getting all sorts of “crop diseases?” Trust me, folks, there’s a REASONING for that! The Lord Jesus Christ knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he designed FOOD GENES and/or HUMAN DNA an EXACT WAY.

And over time, when “liberal scientists” began doing their “experiments”, trying to MANIPULATE and CHANGE THE DNA CODING/SEQUENCING, (first, with food and then later, with rodents in test labs and now – in humans), bad things started to happen. And now there’s high rates of cancer and many “diseases”. Why? Because humans keep rebelling against HIS natural design! Why aren’t more people seeing this fact? Answer: Because Satan, demons and today’s “liberal media” are HIDING the fact!

Folks, it’s time to start CRITICALLY EXAMINING “genetically modified” in ALL its forms (food included). If you’re buying “genetically-modified (GMO) food”, STOP! (Although from what I can gather so far, ORGANIC FOOD is okay because ORGANIC FOOD does NOT use any harmful pesticides, etc. – and ORGANIC food and GENETICALLY-MODIFIED FOOD, from what I understand, are two COMPLETELY different things!) If you’re considering IVF, DON’T DO IT! If you’ve already had an IVF procedure, REPENT of it (in your heart) and don’t do it again!

[And Note: Alot of people don’t realize this but there’s also a SPIRITUAL COMPONENT that goes along with NATURAL PROCREATION. Because not ONE couple in the bible procreated by un-natural means. NOT ONE. And even if the technology had existed back then, my guess is that Jesus Christ/Almighty God would’ve been TOTALLY against it, for various reasons! But still, I wonder………what is the “soul” of a “synthetic baby” like? Oddly and strangely enough, I haven’t yet heard of ONE single born again/zealous-for-God’s-Word Messianic Jew or Christian who was created the “synthetic way”. I wonder why that is. It doesn’t mean they’re not theoretically out there somewhere in the Christian/Messianic Jew world, I just haven’t come across one, yet. Weird? 

I’ve most recently come across a news story where a woman had a military husband who died. They had been planning to have children. So she then wanted to posthumously use IVF to have a child/children by him! And……while my heart goes out to this woman for her pain and her struggles…..(that must be a VERY hard thing to go through and I pray that Jesus grants her heart some healing), the liberal media uses cases like THESE

to evoke some sort of “sympathetic emotional response” from the masses in order to “legitimize” what they’re ALREADY genetically doing in labs all across the world and then, from there on out, it’s all just a slippery slope further downhill (biblical-moral wise).

It almost sounds like (in her mind, anyways) that her having a child by him will be about the ONLY thing that can ‘heal her’. However, ONLY Jesus Christ is the judge on this particular case and ONLY Jesus Christ HIMSEFLF can heal her! It sounds as though this woman has been through ALOT and my heart just breaks for her! I pray that Jesus Christ gives her healing (and possibly a new husband who can still provide her with children, which she so obviously wants!)

Many Christian parents don’t want to adopt since they feel as though “it won’t be the same”, and/or “I’ll never love an adopted child the way I’d love my OWN child” and the like. But the thing with adoption is…….we humans get attached to things VERY easily (even more than we realize……and oftentimes at a much faster rate than we realize).

But in fact, if most infertile Christian couples would just A) give the Lord TIME/a chance to perform a healing and/or fertility miracle or B) consider adoption, I think they’d be much better off, spiritually & otherwise, rather than just prematurely taking matters into their own hands with surrogacy/”gene-manipulation-therapy”/IVF, considering its long-term “spiritual implications”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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