Ashamed/Bored/Indifferent Towards the Old Testament? If so, You’re Denying Him!

Many of today’s Christians in the Middle East and Asian countries ARE in “hiding/underground” due to the “hostile nature of living in a “non-democratic society” (though Egypt & Iraq could be possibly be considered “partially democratic”?). 

But here in America & around the world (as far as Western/Democratic/European nations go), it seems as though “Christians” have made some sort of “Mass Exodus” from society. It would seem that they are “in hiding”. They (as a whole) are trying to hide from having any outside identifiable mark of being a “BIBLICAL Christian” while also trying to hide their “hearts” from Jesus, as well! 

Back around the 90’s to early 00’s, homosexuals were “hiding in the closet”, sort’ve speak, while Christians were hanging about in the open, public square, unafraid of Jesus and/or their religious affiliations. In fact, it was even considered a “good time” to be a Christian, then…..The Left Behind Series by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye was really taking off and getting people to consider/question their “Eternity”, while no “Christian businesses” were getting sued for this or that. 

But here in the year 2017, things have changed. NOW – due to the anti-Christian rhetoric swirling about in today’s world from the radical left – many Christians are now currently “living in fear” and “hiding in the proverbial closet”. This is tragic.

Luke 9:26 in the New Testament states: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me [Jesus Christ] and of my words [the bible], of him shall the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be ashamed, when he [Jesus Christ] shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels”

Translation? If YOU, as a “Christian”, are ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or his words – ANY of his words (Old OR New Testament) – Jesus Christ will be ashamed of YOU during the Great White Throne Judgement/Judgement Day IN FRONT OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS HOLY ANGELS!

Now think about it for a minute. Think about what that truly means. Let it sink in for a bit………

“If I, a Christian, am ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or ANY part of his gospel (Old OR New Testament), then Jesus Christ will be ETERNALLY ASHAMED of ME, on Judgement Day, in the presence of the Heavenly Father & His Holy Angels!” 

Matthew 10:33 echoes this sentiment: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven”

Conclusion? To have Jesus Christ condemn an unfortunate soul to “the lake of fire” for denying him – on Judgement Day – is ONE thing. But for him to do it IN FRONT OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER & HOLY ANGELS? It’s more like a PUBLIC SENTENCING/ EXECUTION, FOLKS!

In the New Testament, we read the case of the apostle Peter denying Jesus 3 times. But afterwards, Peter repented and went about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

So does that mean if you deny Jesus ONCE before someone, that that means you’re automatically going to the lake of fire after you die? No, ofcourse not, ESPECIALLY if you quickly repent and vow to never deny Him again! What it means (in that bible passage) is that a person PERPETUALLY denies Him before others (rather that person denies Him in their heart or not is besides the point), and is PERPETUALLY ASHAMED of the gospel (ANY part of the gospel, be it Old or New Testament or BOTH!) 

Some Christians, sadly, probably feel “ashamed” about the Old Testament, since in it, there’s lots of warfare and because Eve converses with a “talking serpent” in the Garden of Eden. They might even go so far as to say/think: “Adam & Ever didn’t REALLY happen……….it’s just *allegory* of sorts”.

And YES….this same type of theoretical person might proudly proclaim the name of Jesus everywhere they go and be “proud” of the New Testament, even testifying OF/ABOUT the New Testament to others……..But IF they’re “ashamed” of the Old Testament in ANY type of way, (either in the depths of their hearts/minds/souls and/or among other people), then they are, in effect, ashamed of PART of the gospel since the Lord is the same yesterday, today and evermore; He’s everlasting!

John 1:1-3 states: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was GodThe same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”

Therefore, if a Christian is all in love with the New Testament but despises/is ashamed of the Old Testament, then essentially, in a nutshell, that Christian is LITERALLY metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like you in the New Testament but I don’t like you at all in the Old Testament”.

Newsflash: JESUS WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT! In Luke 9:26 and Matthew 24:30 in the New Testament, he calls himself the Son of Man, right? Guess what?

Daniel 7:13-14 in the OLD TESTAMENT says: I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed

1 John 5:10 and Romans 1:4 in the NEW Testament, respectively, proclaim: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” —-“And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead”

While Daniel 3:25 in the OLD Testament reads: “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God

Denying the Old Testament (or being “ashamed” of it), is really no different than metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like your white garment but I HATE your sandals!” Or “I totally dig your sandals but your white garment is something no self-respecting individual would wear”.

THE BIBLE IS NOT A CAFETERIA, FOLKS! JESUS’S WORDS ARE NOT A “CAFETERIA!” 

And just like Peter, there’s many Christians today who proclaim: “No Jesus, I’d NEVER deny you!” 

So why then do they reject the Old Testament and see it as “no longer viable or relevant?” Why do they treat Jesus’s words AS IF they’re a “cafeteria” where they can just pick and choose which words they like (Old Vs. New Testament) and which words they don’t?

There’s even Christians out there today who pick apart the Old and New Testaments THEMSELVES, such as: “Well……I like THIS part of the Old Testament but I hate THAT part of the Old Testament” or “I like THIS part of the New Testament but DESPISE THAT PART”.

THE BIBLE IS NOT A SHOE STORE WHERE ONE CAN JUST “PICK OUT” WHAT SHOE FITS AND WHAT SHOE DOESN’T! JESUS’S TRUTH DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND *FEELINGS & EMOTIONS* AND WHAT *FEELS/SEEM RIGHT*! THE BIBLE AND JESUS’S TRUTH SIMPLY **IS** AND THERE’S NO TAMPERING WITH IT! 

THE BIBLE’S TRUTH (JESUS’S TRUTH) IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND EVERMORE. IT’S EVERLASTING!!!!

What ALOT of Christians don’t realize today is that Jesus Christ was PROPHESIED OF in the Old Testament, while ALSO simultaneously making “pre-flesh appearences” IN the Old Testament – known as “Christophanies” – (look it up on Google). So essentially, that’s WHY people are – in effect – actually DENYING JESUS *when* they deny/ignore/are ashamed of the Old Testament! 

In fact, let me take this a step further. There’s OVER 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament, foretelling of a coming (in-the-flesh appearing) of a “Jewish Messiah” that were SUCCESSFULLY FULFILLED BY Jesus Christ in the New Testament: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/

Therefore, the New Testament is “Volume 2” of Jesus’s Words, a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament. So who are WE to DENY “Volume 1” of God’s Truth (Old Testament) that FORETOLD of “Volume 2 (New Testament)?” 

So I leave you all with THIS question: Do YOU believe the bible (the COMPLETE bible – Old + New Testament) – is the FULL written Word of God? If not, why? Because HOW you answer that question will determine your fate before Jesus on the Day of Judgement! I pray that any person who reads this WILL accept the COMPLETE written truth of Jesus!

[Please note: IF you live in a country or region where ONLY the New Testament is available or ONLY the Old Testament is available, or where practically NO bibles are available, don’t fret, Jesus knows! Although you should try to do everything in your power that you possibly can TO GET access to BOTH Testaments, Old and New. Jesus will HONOR your quest for The Truth! 😉 And remember: to die for Christ is GAIN, while to live for the Devil is SPIRITUAL FOOLISHNESS!]. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christians: Where is YOUR focus?

Here in America, “church” and the “concept” of church has become just like a “social club”, where finely-dressed people file into a building to show other people how “godly” and “righteous” they are, and where hymns are sung for a good 40 minutes or so of the service, usually. And then there’s the talk about church budgets, tithing, etc.

Jesus Christ and the need for forgiveness of sins/salvation is hardly EVER preached (if at all!) The message of the bible has become far, far watered down. People go to church to attend “social events” or on “Christmas” or “Easter” but they hardly EVER walk away from a church sermon having truly learned something or feeling edified in their faith in God/Jesus Christ! There is little to any PHYSICAL persecution here in America for those that are Christian, other than the occasional “scuffle” between Pro-choicers vs. Pro-Lifers and social/popular media ridicule and occasional removing of prayer from schools, etc.

But in the middle East and parts of Asia and Africa, people are being MURDERED and losing THEIR VERY LIVES for their faith in Jesus Christ! Plus bibles (throughout many parts) and churches (even small “house churches”) are BANNED! Imagine if every single breath you took was living in FEAR of being killed or beheaded for your faith and there was no true rest for you and your family, day and night. That is the total physical/emotional/spiritual/psychological TURMOIL these poor folks in Christian-minority countries are having!

But the Middle East isn’t the ONLY place where Christians and Jews are being rounded up, harassed and sometimes killed. Anti-semitism is ON THE RISE all around the globe. In fact, they’ve already had Pro-Palestinian/Anti-Israel/Anti-Jew protests in France, (possibly Germany) and New York. And next is gonna come Anti-Christian rallies, you can bet on that. It’s not really a matter of IF as it is a matter of WHEN.

But Christians here in America, for the most part, just seem to have their heads in the sand! “Oh, that could NEVER happen here!”, they all say in unison. Yeah well, that’s also what the Jews thought as well during the time of Hitler and WWII. The closing of Jewish owned shops and stores was just the very beginning. But even then, many Jews didn’t read the writing on the wall and still remained in Germany. Well now, some of the Atheists/Satanists/Anti-Christian/LGBT activists are starting to purposely target “Christian businesses” and are trying to put them out of business by “filing complaints” against them, etc. Could this be the very beginning? However, UNLIKE the time right before WWII, Christians here in America don’t really have another country to flee to. It’s pretty much the same all over the globe.

Over in the Middle East, men, women and children are being CRUCIFIED and/or BEHEADED for their Christian faith! While some of them have the options of leaving, paying a heavy tax, converting to Islam or dying, some of them aren’t so lucky. Christian homes are being “marked” by Qur’an-obeying Muslims. Christians in the Middle East, I’m told, don’t even sleep in their own homes anymore, they sleep out in the fields or in refugee camps. This is a sad, sad time in the name of humanity, INDEED! ;(

While American Christians are deciding what to wear on a Sun-day service for a watered down gospel, Christians in the Middle East are losing their very LIVES and livelihoods for the gospel! If they’re caught with a bible or with bible in hand, they’ve pretty much already signed their death certificates, as far as Qur’an-obeying-Muslims are concerned. And the bodies of the dead Christians are often left behind as a “reminder” for the Middle Easterners not to stray from Islam. And unlike the CNN news reports, Islam is NOT a religion of peace, it’s a religion of DEATH and DESTRUCTION! The Quran calls for the DEATH of the “infidel”. And the “infidel” is Jews and Christians. And the Quran calls for “beheading” of the “infidel”, which is WHY there’s so many beheadings now of Christians in the Middle East.

But I ask you THIS: where is YOUR focus? And where is your faith in Jesus Christ at, right now? Would you be ready and willing to DIE for your faith, if necessary and if threatened with death? If you don’t have the TYPE of faith in Jesus Christ, where, if you were threatened with death and/or torchure today, my personal prayer is that you would cry and call out to the Lord Jesus now to GET that type of faith. Because ya NEVER know when the next “bomb” will go off, when the next “riot” will be, when the next “crazy gunman” will come and start shooting up the place you’re at. Ya never know. So if you’re not ready to die today for your faith in Jesus Christ, then you need to GET READY! And again, I don’t say that to scare you but to prepare you!

I once saw this very good message on Godtube where a person portraying Jesus Christ asked a Christian the following critical question: “how can you DIE for me when you can’t even LIVE FOR ME?” In other words, the message was, if we’re not effective witnesses for Christ (by our words, by how we live for Christ by following the 10 commandments, helping those in need, treating people with patience, kindness, humility, etc.), then we’re not going to be effective martyrs for Christ. And if our lives “for” Jesus are in vain, then any purported death “for” Jesus will ALSO be in vain. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

The Book of Revelation in the New Testament (believe it or not) says in Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years”.

So in other words, the book of Revelation is possibly suggesting some sort of Islamic warfare against true Christians during the Tribulation as Islam calls for its faithful followers to “behead the infidels” (in this case, the “infidels” being Jews and Christians and all those who refuse to convert to Islam, I suppose) and, as Revelation 20:4 states, many true witnesses of Jesus Christ were BEHEADED for their testimony of/faith in Jesus Christ and his holy divine words in the bible! And during the Tribulation, many Christians will be deceived into thinking that Allah and the God of the bible are the same God but alas, they are NOT, MARK MY WORDS!

Don’t be deceived! For when they say “Allah al-Akbar”, they are saying “Allah is greater”. And remember in the Old Testament when Satan said “I will be greater than the Most High. I will ascend my throne above the stars of God?” Put two and two together and what do you get? Allah is Satan, repackaged, I’m sorry to say. And it grieves my very soul very much to even have to be writing this, even. Because I’m sure many Muslims out there (who were born and raised in the Muslim faith) truly have NO IDEA who “Allah” really is and whom the God of the bible really is (Jesus Christ Almighty!) Jesus Christ is MORE than just a prophet, he’s the TRUE SON OF GOD, as well as God Incarnate! There is much, much archaeological evidence that proves the Holy Bible (and none to date that I know of that support anything in the Qu’ran). Plus there are SEVERAL non-Christian eyewitness accounts that prove Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven:

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

And although it is argued WHO gave him the poisoned meat (his wife Aisha, a Jewish woman servant, etc.), Muhammad died from eating poisoned meat. He knew it was poisoned AFTER he started eating it but not before. Jesus Christ, on the other hand, knew everything that was gonna happen, YEARS before it happened. Notice the difference, here?

But anyways, my point is THIS: Jesus Christ is the one and ONLY true living God in the flesh and we need to put all our faith, trust, love and obedience in HIM and him, ALONE! While all other religions offer a “maybe/not 100% way” to get to “eternal paradise”, Jesus Christ Almighty provides a 100% ASSURED way to get to “Eternal Paradise”, someday. While all other religions promise a way out of “the fires of hell/condemnation”, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins/eternal life/escape from eternal condemnation.

While all other religions promise “enlightenment”, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to set a person’s soul free! While all other religions proclaim “healing”, Jesus Christ Almighty is the ONLY one that can truly heal people & perform miracles in one’s life! (Note: when a seeming “miracle” happens by something/someone other than Jesus Christ himself, a COUNTERFEIT MIRACLE has occurred and the “miracle” did NOT happen by God/Jesus Christ, so please be forewarned!)

But the bottom line is, WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS? If you were to die tonight or tomorrow in your sleep or by some other means, would you have 100% assurance of going to eternal paradise someday? How do you know for sure? To put your faith, trust, love and obedience into ANYTHING other than Jesus Christ is vanity, pure vanity. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins, the ONLY way to have everlasting life/entrance into Eternal Paradise someday, and the ONLY way to truly be set free from all the sin and spiritual “darkness” gripping today’s world!

So won’t you come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, TODAY? Because tomorrow is not certain or guaranteed. We never know when we’re going to die. And when we die, (as in, COMPLETELY die, not partially die during an N.D.E.), it’s too late, there’s NO 2nd chances. So instead of putting your faith, trust, love and obedience into a FALSE god that CAN’T guarantee you Eternal Paradise and forgiveness of sins, put your faith, trust, love and obedience into an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God (Jesus Christ Almighty) that CAN guarantee you Eternal Paradise and Forgiveness of Sins!

And be prepared to hold ONTO to that faith if it takes the death of you! Because remember that Christians in Asia and the Middle East die for their faith every single day! And the Lord no doubt counts those folks as more than worthy/honorable, in his site! Is he going to count YOU worthy? Because remember: a faith worth living for is ALSO a faith worth dying for and a faith worth dying for is ALSO a faith worth living for.

“Lord Jesus, I pray for all the Muslims out there today that haven’t yet come to a saving knowledge OF and faith IN you. I pray that you open up their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to receive your eternal truth in the bible. And please protect them from all the non-Christian sources that would attempt to persecute/threaten them and their families. And please give them the type of faith in you that’s SO strong, that they would proudly die for it, if they had to. Instead of them dying for a false god (Allah), instead allow them to die for the one and only TRUE God (Jesus Christ Almighty). Please love them and sustain them from any and all persecution they might endure as a result of coming to faith in YOU, Lord.

And for all the Christians here in America, please give them a RENEWED faith in you that’s SO strong, that nothing or no-one will be able to stand in the way of their faith in YOU, Lord. Please give them the courage to suffer severe persecution and/or to die for their faith, if they have to. Please give them the strength and the courage to “go against the system” and to NOT take the mark of the beast, when the time comes. Also please renew their focus and make their focus be on YOU, Lord and nothing/no-one else. Please help their faith not to falter, NO MATTER WHAT, in these here End Times. And please bless them and keep them for all eternity. Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan in “Christian Music”

For years, pastors in churches have encouraged many young church goers not to listen to “secular music” (which, in their minds, was of the devil) but instead, to listen to “Christian” or “gospel music”. And today, there are many young Christian music groups, to be sure. But just how truly “Christian” are they? Lets examine the evidence.

The following article in the Toronto Sun is about As I Lay Dying frontman, Tim Lambesis.

http://www.torontosun.com/2014/06/23/imprisoned-as-i-lay-dying-frontman-tim-lambesis-admits-to-lying-about-faith-to-sell-records

Sadly, Mr. Lambesis is not an outlier for there are MANY groups in the “Christian music bizz” that aren’t actually Christian but only PRETEND to be to sell records/etc.

Check out the following music video from one of the world’s most-renowned “Christian bands” P.O.D. — Watch real closely and you will see group members and audience members doing the devil sign. Seriously.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWl9tjO7KtA

1). boy doing devil sign at 1:09
2). demon screeches at 3:14 and beyond
3). 2:08-2:09 yet ANOTHER devil sign

And last but not least is a link to one of Carrie Underwood’s most recent music videos. (For those of you who don’t know Carrie Underwood, she’s the one renowned for singing “Before He Cheats” and “Jesus Take The Wheel). Carrie Underwood, by many, is considered to be the “Christian darling of country music”. However, there’s many dark & Satanic themes in her music videos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVEBZLrjpw4

Right off the bat, if you listen without the sound on, you will notice SEVERAL Satanic themes in the video. You will see the color black (which represents death/decaying/dying), bright red painted fingernails (which represent Satan), a cemetery (which also represents death/decay/dying), black veils (which represent Satan and darkness) and a song that’s apparently about advocating MURDER!

In her “Jesus Take The Wheel” music video, you can ALSO notice several Satanic themes (if you view the video without the sound on). You will notice that she’s in a rich mansion, is looking into MIRRORS (a well-known Occultic symbol), does a very subtle devil sign at 1:16, a bright red chair and golden lamp (representing Satan and Satan’s throne), that she’s possessed at 1:25, that she’s actually SITTING in the red chair at 1:36 (meaning, her subservience to Satan), that she’s “smirking” at the viewer as IF to say “ha ha ha ha, you don’t know the difference!” at 1:40, that she gives a “smirk” at 1:41, etc. etc.

And in the following video, you can ALSO clearly see many Satanic themes all throughout. There’s FIRE onstage (signifying the FLAMES OF HELL), her & Miranda Lambert are all dolled up and dressed like hookers, not to mention the gyrating of their bodies and hips is ANYTHING **BUT** CHRISTIAN!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK__-NEequM

And the actual music video rendition of the song fares no better, especially at 2:08 where Carrie Underwood’s not only dressed like a hooker but is gyrating her hips and body around like one!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4Yzj-m_SBk

Sadly, these two musical groups are just one of SEVERAL “Christian bands” who aren’t actually Christian but that only pretend to be in order to sell records.

But that goes back to a previous point I was trying to make. When we start to think another fellow human being, music group, movie, videogame etc. is SO GREAT, we begin to lose our focus on Jesus Christ & his true gospel of Salvation and that’s when we unwittingly open ourselves up to be lied to and deceived by demon spirits (demon spirits that are EVER so apparent in today’s “Christian music”).

But in fact, I’ve got an assignment for all you readers here on WordPress (yes, an actual assignment! lol). When you have some time set aside, flip through all the radio stations on your tuner dial. ALL OF THEM. And then go back and stop at the “Christian radio station” (if you have one). Notice anything?

If you didn’t know it was the “Christian radio station”, would you have thought it was a “popular hits” or “secular station”? Be honest with yourself. Because more than likely, you will notice NO DIFFERENCE between the Christian station and the “secular stations”. And the reason being is that “Christian music” is no longer “Christian music” but is rather a DIVERSION in order to deceive people into thinking that they’re listening to actual Christian music rather than just REPACKAGED SECULAR MUSIC with the name “Christian” stamped on it. God help us all!

U.2. is one of the most popular 80’s bands. Their hit song “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” was a song that they PURPOSELY used to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! Sadly, many Christians are unbeknown of this fact! In fact, most recently, Bono was even featured on a CHRISTIAN RADIO PROGRAM……..yes, CHRISTIAN RADIO PROGRAM……..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU1zDgGkdj8

Pastor JD Farag gives an EXCELLENT sermon on the topic:

Start the video at 5:02 and go from there

At 10:48, he talks about the important point about how we can NOT serve two masters!

Christian Berdahl ALSO gives an EXCELLENT presentation on the subject, entitled “The Distraction Dilemna”

But if you really want to get down to the “nitty gritty” of things, most of ALL pre-recorded music is of the Devil, quite technically. Why? Because none of it has the “true heart” of God in it. When King David during the times of the Old Testament wrote the Psalms (which were also MUSICAL, by the way, and alot of people tend to forget that), he wrote them with his whole mind, heart, body and SOUL and it SHOWED!

However, when one hears a “pre-recorded” song on a Christian radio station today, the songs are just way too “convoluted” for one to truly pay attention to. It has too much backbeat, breakbeat, syncopation, etc. In fact, nearly all of them got what I call the “clap beat” or “Babylonian drumming pattern” in the background and I find that very annoying and distracting. Personally, I’ve ALWAYS hated the “clap beat” background in music, even as a small child.

In fact, I’ve always hated the concept of “clapping”, in and of itself even, but never really knew why…….I could never quite put my finger on it…….until I discovered most recently that the ancient Romans used to “clap” during ancient performances……in other words, “clapping” is actually of Pagan origin……so to me, that actually makes sense to me, now……who ever called that “music”, anyway? With a constant “clappy” background beat? It should instead be verbal words that say “headache, headache, headache”, haha! Does anyone ELSE out there hate the “clap beat” too, or is it just me?

Another interesting thing that alot of people don’t know (and wouldn’t know if they haven’t watched Christian Berdahl’s music seminar program entitled The Distraction Dilemma) is that a good majority of today’s music is actually based on REPETITIVE African tribal voodoo beats.

Now, before you get up in arms and call me crazy, consider the following 2 songs which demonstrate this: “What’s My Name?” by the Rolling Stones and “If you want it, come get it” by Selena Gomez.

The voodoo beats are meant to put the listener into a TRANCE. Have you ever wondered why all songs have a “long introduction” before the lyrics come about and also about WHY it is that certain songs get stuck in your head and start playing in your head OVER AND OVER AGAIN? And also why, when you try to think of ANOTHER song to try to get that song to get out of your head, THAT SONG then becomes stuck in your head and so on and so forth?

Also: WHY would music need to put you, the listener, into a TRANCE if it was all spiritually good? Think about that one for awhile……….Music (especially the kind of music in today’s world) is SPIRITUALLY DEMONIC, FOLKS! And music’s attack on the soul by Satan is ONLY THE BEGINNING! Because remember: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Popular Way Vs. God’s Way

The Christian Church (up until most recently in the year 2005? or so) has always had a strong view against homosexuality/homosexual behavior. And because of this, church attendance in years past hasn’t been very popular. But now with the changing societal norms and being gay being the so-called “in” thing now (or so it “seems”, anyways), many Christian churches have now followed suit and now claim it’s “OK” to be actively gay and allows openly homosexuals to marry and be clergy members WITHIN the church! And that, in and of itself, is an abomination and goes directly AGAINST the written word of God in the bible!

In wanting to gain more converts and more pews filled, the Church has seemingly become more “world-friendly” in its stance on sin, proclaiming false things like “it’s OK to be an active homosexual” and “there’s no such thing as sin, since Jesus Christ ALREADY died on the cross for our sins” and “once saved, always saved”. But tell me. Is the holy bible like going through a Burger King drive-thru? Metaphorically speaking, is it okay to order the tomato without the lettuce, the lettuce without the tomato, cheese and pickle but no onion on the hamburger, etc? Just like that wouldn’t be a complete cheeseburger (in my eyes) without ALL those things ON it, the written Word of God is not complete without ALL of God’s commandments IN it. Cause otherwise, what did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Think about it, folks!

Matthew 7: 13-14 states: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.

Matthew 7: 15-18 says: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

Matthew 7: 19-23 says:Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fireWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Matthew 7: 24-29 states: Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and DOETH them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them NOT, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”

Matthew 7: 13-14 means that MANY, MANY people will take the “popular” way out and do what is popular in the WORLD, but NOT what is popular with God/Jesus Christ/the bible. In wanting to feel or be “accepted”, they will forsake all or parts of the bible in their quest to FEEL “accepted”. But these sinners (and please note I’m talking about ALL types of sinners that want to justify their sin, here, NOT JUST openly active homosexuals) care more about feeling accepted by mankind, rather than by feeling/being accepted by God/Jesus Christ. And in SO doing, they forsake any chance they might have at true Salvation through Jesus Christ, except if they repent of their sins and come back to the TRUE biblical truth of Jesus Christ & Salvation before it’s too late.

Matthew 7:15-29 means that many people will profess to come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and TRUE Christianity, but only a very few select FEW will actually be as such, for MANY will be “pretend Christians” or “wayward Christians” who THINK or PRETEND they are following the bible but actually aren’t or of whom PURPOSELY lead people astray for their own personal, financial or spiritual gain. Just think of the many “Christian ministries” out there that have gotten in trouble for “financial fraud” most recently in the last few years. This is a REAL growing problem in today’s “church”.

Matthew 7:16 states: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” In other words, do those that come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ manifest the “fruits” of patience, unconditional love, biblical truth, kindness, non-judgement, etc. or do they show ungodly “fruits” such as greed, envy, wrath, financial fraud/embezzlement, hatred for others, UN-biblical truths,etc.? Some of today’s modern churches and “Christian ministries” have proven themselves to be “ungodly fruits” who care more about the mighty $$$, than they do about saving souls for Christ and this is very sad & unfortunate and breaks my heart and soul to PIECES! ;( 

Matthew 22:14 reminds us:For many are called, but few are chosen.”

There seems to be this false teaching that’s permeating the very FABRIC of our society today that “all paths lead into one” or “everybody goes to heaven unless they were Stalin or Adolf Hitler, etc” when that’s just simply not true! Matthew 7: 13-14 is VERY CLEAR that it is a NARROW path and FEW actually find it!!!!!! So people are gonna have to choose in this life. Do they want to be popular with God/Jesus Christ or with fellow man? And IF a person chooses they’d rather be popular with fellow man and NOT with God, there’s an eternal price they’ll have to pay for that someday, if they don’t repent of their sins and turn back to Jesus Christ before it’s too late!

Once more, there’s TWO ways in this world and two ways, ONLY! One is either FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ. There is NO other way! Cause the truth is, ALL paths but ONE lead unto DARKNESS and the ONLY true path to God is through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! ALL OTHER PATHS (meaning, all other world religions or philosophies, INCLUDING ATHEISM/AGNOSTICISM) lead into ETERNAL DARKNESS & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Those Christians out there that SAY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal paradise might SEEM “narrow-minded” on the surface, but Jesus Christ has SAID that the path to eternal paradise is narrow and FEW actually find it!

Not all of the religion in the WORLD (Agnosticism/Atheism/Catholicism/Wicca/Satanism/Islam/Hinduism/Buddhism/Mormonism/Humanism/Shintoism/Wayward-Unbiblical Christianism, etc.) is going to save you if you don’t put your faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! Acts 4: 12 states:  Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.
