Oh… THEY KNOW

“And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors (criminals), one on the  right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus,  Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:33,34 

I had to temporarily remove my darkening clock background and go pitch black for this post. You know, when Jesus ASKED for the forgiveness of those who crucified Him, those who SCREAMED for His death, those who even CURSED their own children through the statement of “let his blood be on us and our children” it was an act of mercy beyond human understanding.

They had tortured Him, beat Him with cat o nines that ripped flesh down to the bone from His body and they had MOCKED His eternal Kingdom by the piercing of a crown of thorns all the while SCREAMING for His death.

And STILL he asked for their forgiveness.. that they KNEW NOT, did not understand what they had done… and most importantly WHOM it had been done unto.

You know He said something else..“Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.” 

He was referring there to those who hear the Gospel and reject it.

There IS a very precise list of SINS in the BIble, THERE ARE SINS,THEY WILL ALWAYS BE SINS and SEXUAL SINS ARE STILL SINS!  You cheat on your spouse, that is a sin, you have sex with the same-sex as you that is a sin! There IS no difference! And if they want to pull stunts to get MORE ATTENTION that is them also.

BUT when they PROFANE A LIVING HOLY GOD AND THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST that is a red flag waved.

There are lines that should never be crossed and when we as Christians sit idly by and let the candy coats with their fake pagan churches who try to hide behind the name of God while committing ABOMINATIONS to Him…guess what.. we are condoning it and that makes us just as guilty!

The “parades” with mock crucifixions and people making fun of Jesus and now we have “gay” manger scenes. People this blasphemy, this is getting into the territory of the unpardonable sin.

The VIRGIN Mary was OVERSHADOWED by the HOLY GHOST thus produces Jesus Christ in her womb. He had NO earthly Father, and just as Gabriel proclaimed to Mary, Luke 1:34,35: “Then Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

And the angel answered and said unto her, The HOLY GHOST shall come upon thee, and the POWER OF THE HIGHEST shall overshadow thee:

THEREFORE also that HOLY thing (ONE) WHICH SHALL BE BORN OF THEE SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD.”

If people want to wallow in sin and be unrepentant that is one thing but to mock and make fun of our God is another and to create “manger scenes” with TWO “Josephs” is going absolutely too far. Just when I think I have seen it all…. These actions are on a level of filth and depravity that defy logic!

There IS NO FEAR of God or His Holiness in this country anymore and it is high time the TRUE Church of Christ gets up off its laurels and SPEAK OUT against these blasphemies. 

Because it IS NOT ABOUT BEING GAY, there are great gay people, there are great straight people, but no one is going to heaven unless they repent and are saved BUT the “people” behind these actions are simply TRUE GOD HATERS made up of ALL groups of people.. both gay and straight with the SAME AGENDA.

If anyone thinks God is going to tolerate this.. you might want to read a little of Revelation… maybe the can hide behind their seasonal “statues” when SEVENTY FIVE POUND hail stones start pounding them from heaven…

MAYBE.. they’ll second guess their laughter when they are in hell GNAWING THEIR TONGUES OFF BECAUSE OF THE PAIN….

Maybe… THEY WILL REMEMBER THEIR SNIDE REMARKS AND MOCKING THE HOLINESS OF THE LORD WHEN THEY ARE TRYING TO COMMIT SUICIDE AND GOD HAS TAKEN AWAY THEIR HUMAN ABILITY TO DIE…AND THEY ARE FORCED TO LIVE….

Yeah…JEHOVAH GOD STILL has that kind of power and I promise you this world is getting ready to see it displayed its majesty, its glory… and for these the heart sickening horror that makes even their bowels inside of them loose completely out. 

Matthew 12:31,32: ” Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men; BUT (EXCEPT) THE BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN UNTO MEN.

And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: BUT WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST, IT SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN HIM, NEITHER IN THIS WORLD, NEITHER IN THE WORLD TO COME.” 

Do not pray for these people! If you want to pray you pray that these pagan altars will fall.. you pray for the children whose minds are being corrupted and confused by WHY there would be two “Josephs” It makes me sick even writing the use of his name like that.

Jeremiah 11:13: “Therefore PRAY NOT THOU FOR THIS PEOPLE, NEITHER LIFT UP A CRY OR PRAYER FOR THEM….”

They are NOT like the people Jesus prayed for… who were under the satanic influence as satan’s “hour to act” had come. THESE people are under their OWN influence, quoted it before.. quoting it again…

Romans 1:20-32:” For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead (DIVINE NATURE) so they ARE without excuse. 

BECAUSE that, when they knew God, they glorified him not AS God, NEITHER were they thankful; BUT BECAME VAIN IN THEIR IMAGINATIONS (thoughts) AND THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKENED. 

PROFESSING THEMSELVES TO BE WISE THEY BECAME AS FOOLS. And changed the glory of the UNCORRUPTIBLE GOD into an IMAGE MADE LIKE TO CORRUPTIBLE MAN, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

WHEREFORE GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP TO UNCLEANNESS THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THEIR OWN HEARTS, TO DISHONOUR THEIR BODIES BETWEEN THEMSELVES.

WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, AND WORSHIPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE (THEMSELVES, THEIR FLESH) MORE THAN THE CREATOR, WHO IS BLESSED FOR EVER, AMEN.

FOR THIS CAUSE (REASON) GOD GAVE THEM UP TO UNTO VILE  AFFECTIONS; for even their women (females) did CHANGE the natural use into that which is against nature.

And likewise the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet (due),

AND AS THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO  A REPROBATE MIND, to do those things which are not convenient(fitting);

BEING FILLED WITH ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, FORNICATION, (and YES, this still means ANY sexual activity outside the male/female marriage, PERIOD), WICKEDNESS, COVETOUSNESS, MALICIOUSNESS, FULL OF ENVY, MURDER, DEBATE, DECEIT, MALIGNITY; WHISPERERS,

BACKBITERS, HATERS OF GOD, DESPITEFUL, PROUD, BOASTFUL, INVENTORS OF EVIL THINGS, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING, COVENANTBREAKERS, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, IMPLACABLE, UNMERCIFUL;

WHO KNOWING THE JUDGMENT OF GOD, THAT THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, NOT ONLY DO THE SAME, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM.”

God GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND.. that is what happens when people keep on and on and as another scripture states they have “their CONSCIENCE seared with a hot iron” which means that they have crossed the line of no return for their souls and ANYONE who can profane the Holiness of God and the birth of His Son HAS CROSSED THAT LINE.

So if you want to sin.. you sin… BUT  you better be keeping God out of it. As Christians we better be speaking out against these things because OUR silence has led to the mess we have now.

And for us to agree that it is their RIGHT to mock and blasphemy OUR GOD makes us the lowest cowards on the face of earth!

But as we will ALL see one day and if we don’t get a rein on this.. it’s going to be sooner than later… the GOSPEL will defend itself. THESE people WHO stir these thing up, those who PIT homosexuals AGAINST heterosexuals, the blacks AGAINST the whites, the same old demons that love to divide and spread HATE, and we all run head first following them into the trap, the very same are NOW teaching the blasphemy of God.

BE ON GUARD, again, EVEN if you are not saved, don’t let them pull you into this!

WHO are they? The book of Jude tells us and it tells us specifically that we ONCE knew this truth and it also tells us that the abomination that is brought in COMES in as false teaching on sexuality and it tells us that money is the motive, it also addresses ALL the words and mocking they say against the Lord and that we are to CONTEND for the faith!

Jude only has one chapter so this is verse numbers, Jude:3-16:

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort (WARN) you THAT YE SHOULD EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE FAITH WHICH WAS ONCE DELIVERED UNTO THE SAINTS (the TRUE Gospel, not the watered down, candy coated FALSE teachings of today) 

For THERE ARE CERTAIN MEN CREPT IN UNAWARES (those who came in under the pretense of the Gospel, that no one bothered to stop) WHO WERE BEFORE OF OLD PREORDAINED (long ago marked out for this purpose) TO THIS CONDEMNATION (damnation) ,

UNGODLY MEN, TURNING THE GRACE OF OUR GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS ( having an overly sexual nature, also translates to licentiousness, disregarding rules and having again overtly sexual desires),

AND DENYING THE ONLY LORD GOD, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

I will therefore PUT YOU IN REMEMBRANCE, THOUGH YOU ONCE KNEW THIS,

how that the Lord having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward DESTROYED THEM THAT BELIEVED NOT. 

AND THE ANGELS WHICH KEPT NOT THEIR FIRST ESTATE (habitation, this refers to the ones thrown out of heaven with Lucifer, that are now demons), BUT LEFT THEIR FIRST HABITATION, HE HATH RESERVED IN EVERLASTING CHAINS UNDER DARKNESS UNTO THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT DAY.

EVEN AS SODOM AND GOMORRAH, AND THE CITIES ABOUT THEM IN LIKE MANNER, GIVING THEMSELVES OVER TO FORNICATION (sexual immorality), AND GOING AFTER STRANGE FLESH,

ARE SET FORTH FOR AN EXAMPLE, SUFFERING THE VENGEANCE OF ETERNAL FIRE.

LIKEWISE ALSO THESE FILTHY DREAMERS DEFILE THE FLESH, DESPISE DOMINION, AND SPEAK EVIL OF DIGNITIES.

YET MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, WHEN CONTENDING WITH THE DEVIL ABOUT THE BODY OF MOSES DURST (dared) NOT BRING AGAINST HIM RAILING ACCUSATION, BUT SAID, THE LORD REBUKE THEE.

BUT THESE SPEAK EVIL OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THEY KNOW NOT: BUT WHAT THEY KNOW NATURALLY, AS BRUTE BEASTS, IN THOSE THINGS THEY CORRUPT THEMSELVES.

WOE UNTO THEM! For they are gone the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the the error of Balaam, (the false prophet hired to attempt to curse Israel but God took control of him) FOR A REWARD (money), AND PERISHED IN THE GAINSAYING OF CORE.

THESE ARE SPOTS IN YOUR FEAST OF CHARITY, WHEN THEY FEAST WITH YOU,

FEEDING THEMSELVES WITHOUT FEAR:

CLOUDS THEY ARE WITHOUT WATER, CARRIED ABOUT WINDS;

TREES WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH, WITHOUT FRUIT, TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS;

RAGING WAVES OF THE SEA, FOAMING (SPEWING) OUT THEIR OWN SHAME;

WANDERING STARS, TO WHOM IS RESERVED THE BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS FOR EVER.

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying Behold, THE LORD COMETH WITH TEN THOUSANDS OF HIS SAINTS TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT UPON ALL, AND TO CONVINCE (convict) ALL THAT ARE UNGODLY AMONG THEM OF ALL THEIR UNGODLY DEEDS, WHICH THEY HAVE UNGODLY COMMITTED,

AND OF ALL THEIR HARD SPEECHES (HARSH THINGS)  WHICH UNGODLY SINNERS HAVE SPOKEN AGAINST HIM.

THESE ARE MURMURERS, COMPLAINERS, WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS; AND THEIR MOUTHS SPEAKETH GREAT SWELLING WORDS, HAVING MENS PERSONS IN ADMIRATIONS ( people pleasers) BECAUSE OF ADVANTAGE.” 

And I want to give a final thought… when God DESTROYED Sodom and Gomorrah.. THERE WAS NO MORE WARNINGS…. He came with two angels to SEE if the reports were accurate… and those reports WERE…  honoring His promise to Abraham, he SAVED Lot and his daughters out of that city, but there WAS no more warning.

I highly suggest today, if you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and you do not want to be eternally lost… you may want to hasten that decision because this place is prime for divine judgment… judgment He has ALREADY said in His word IS coming. Because THEY KNOW… THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

“And Yet… Part 3, “Yeah, it’s still a sin…”

Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” REVELATION 9:11

Boy, the fun you could have right there, discussing those topics with the modern candy coats. We all know that not many are “bold” enough, ( fancy term for hopelessly self-deceived enough) to argue murder is wrong.

Witchcraft wrong. Stealing? Yep, they will agree that is probably still wrong. But get up in their business concerning their sex lives and well now, maybe that is not so wrong.

Maybe they would like to argue that this scripture is somehow misinterpreted by the closed minds of old fogies who still hold old school doctrine.  I really did not know what more I could say other than what had been said and backed by scripture in my “Sin”trifugal” Force” series, which deals with sex, sex, and sex. But I knew if it was in this verse, well, like the other two posts it needs addressed because this is concerning the coming wrath and judgments from God and this is a wake up call to the fact that God is still Holy, all the aforementioned human actions are STILL considered wrong and He STILL expects repentance and hopefully many will before it is too late.

Pornography, the number one stronghold in the known world, thanks to television, the music industry, and talk shows, and let us never forget the dear old world-wide web, there is now available at a key stroke a world so insidious and so destructive to minds and devastating to souls that I do truly believe it is the enemies strongest card in his game and it has to stop.

Pornography is not a secular problem, it has also became a huge church problem (and we all do know that) and the only way to defeat it is to admit that it is a problem, ask God for help, repent and stop it!

Don’t keep picking up sin just because the world and maybe other “Christians” say that it is okay because you’re not hurting anyone, BUT you are!

You are hurting your soul and aiding an industry that preys on others in the worst possible way and I don’t care what your office is or how many times you go to church, you can not have this in your life and go to heaven but even more, you can not have this in your life and NOT be in the list of “yet repented not” and escape the wrath of God.

We all know that everything is a two-way street, so what is “fair for the goose is fair for the gander”, so consider that and apply it to this verse, it will be as true for females even though the Lord spoke it this way:

MATTHEW 5:27,28: “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old-time, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY:  But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her HATH COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH HER ALREADY IN HIS HEART.” 

And this is where He went on to tell us if something is causing us temptation to pluck it out, cut it off, whatever it takes but get it out of our lives because it would lead to hell. When I did the original teaching on it, I wrote for a church site and wanted to be very careful and not cause them any undue reproach so I went around a little of this and just gave reference scripture But now I want to give you indisputable proof ( IF you consider the Word of God to be the authority on the subject) that it has been around for a long time, God HATED it then, Guess what? HE HATES IT NOW!

He hates it because HE LOVES HIS PEOPLE AND KNOWS IT WILL HARM THEM. This is referenced as countries and the downfalls thereof and a clear picture of what is increasingly happening to one now, BUT it is a clear picture of the influence of being tempted into lust through images, in one of its early forms and the destructive waste it cause laid.

EZEKIEL 23:12-22:” She doted upon (lusted for) the Assyrians her neighbors, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men. Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way.

And that she increased her whoredoms (harlotry) for when she SAW men pourtrayed ( portraits drawn) upon the wall, IMAGES of the Chaldeans pourtryed with vermillion (drew with a red color), girded with the girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity;

And as SOON AS SHE SAW THEM WITH HER EYES, she doted upon ( lusted for) them, and sent messengers into Chaldea. And the Babylonians (sons of Babel) came to her in the bed of love, and THEY DEFILED HER WITH THEIR WHOREDOMS (immorality) and SHE WAS POLLUTED (defiled) with them, and HER MIND WAS ALIENATED FROM THEM, so she discovered (revealed) her whoredoms, and discovered (revealed) her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister, (He was turned against them) 

YET she multiplied her whoredoms (Old English for immorality) in calling to her remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon ( lusted for ) their paramours ( illicit lovers), whose flesh is as the flesh of asses (donkeys) and whose issue is as the issue of horses. Thus thou calledest to  remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.

THEREFORE, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will raise up thy lovers AGAINST thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and I will bring them AGAINST THEE ON EVERY SIDE;” 

A very clear picture of what happened, how it happened, what it caused and the consequence thereof.  Also quite a picture of certain country’s present behavior, but we’ll stick to our subject.

What you see can and will hurt you and even though you may feel like without physical action it means nothing, but reading this you can clearly see how looking lead to thinking, thinking led to setting it all in motion and then we see that THEY defiled HER with what they were and she became the same and God brought judgment down through those she betrayed him for.

 This has always been a big subject to God, in the past generations people were taught to wait for marriage and that  was not questioned, and that one always married the opposite sex was also not questioned, and even though our society and “so-called “churches” has diminished it to just basic human behavior it is not, nor will it ever be.

If God lists it with idolatry, sorcery, and, killing someone, and stealing, how on earth can anyone seriously teach others that God has changed his mind?  

God wants everyone saved, sin is sin, and WE ALL HAVE sinned but God is faithful to save, and all that is required is to repent, do not be one of those who even, KNOWING the wrath of God still refuse to repent, God has given us ALL opportunity to be saved, to come to Him, and nothing shocks Him, He will never belittle or embarrass you and anything you confess to Him in secret is just that, it is between you and Him and you do not have to tell the whole world your struggles but you do have to see it for what it is and get rid of it before it gets rid of you!

 Repent and trust Jesus, In all these areas, put away false gods, forsake the devil and give up all the selfish behavior that goes with that. If you are already saved but maybe struggling a little, don’t beat yourself up, start a new day on a new path.

God didn’t call quitters, He called soldiers, who even after getting knocked down will get back up and march on, Satan just uses these things to snare and tear down so forget it, don’t talk about it and don’t think about it ( notice in our text she CALLED to her remembrance those days)  and NEVER let your guard down until God has helped you overcome it.

Quote this, pray this and get it soaked completely into your mind, because Jesus said that He would bring all things back to our remembrance that HE taught us:

JAMES: 1:12-16: “BLESSED is the man (human) that endureth temptation: for WHEN HE IS TRIED (tested), he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Let no man say when he is tempted, i am tempted of God: for GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH EVIL, NEITHER TEMPTETH HE ANY MAN;

But every man IS tempted, WHEN HE IS DRAWN AWAY BY HIS OWN LUSTS, AND ENTICED. Then when LUST HATH CONCEIVED, IT BRINGETH FORTH SIN, AND WHEN SIN IS FINISHED, BRINGETH FORTH DEATH.

Do not err (do not be DECEIVED), my beloved brethren.”

  Mirrors what happened in Ezekiel, I promise, Gods word never changes.

ROMANS 6:12:” Let NOT sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Again that verse clearing states what is going on there with the reference to OBEYING sin, to obey means that something has CONTROL over you. ROMANS 6: 14: “Sin SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU, for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”

There goes the control, it will not have control if you do not let it and you will be BLESSED in overcoming it. Now for those who are not quite ready to repent or think this is all funny and a big joke, well, for you, if you die unrepentant before these things come to pass, know that you will die lost and there will be no second chances and God is ALLOWING YOU A CHANCE TODAY to be saved. If you do not die and still refuse to repent when these things start to come to pass and that could be very soon, please remember this and be one who does repent.

“And Yet… ” PART 1, Playing with paganism

“And the rest of the men (generic term for ALL humans) which were not killed by these plagues YET THEY REPENTED NOT  of the works of their hands, that they SHOULD NOT worship devils (demons), and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see nor hear, nor walk;

NEITHER REPENTED THEY of their MURDERS, nor of their SORCERIES, nor of their FORNICATION, NOR of their THEFTS.” REVELATION 9:20,21

To me that IS the most horrifying verse in the entire Bible. This IS stated AFTER the Lord starts pouring down vials of wrath on earth.

They KNOW that Jesus IS REAL, they ARE falling dead under His wrath and yet they still refuse to repent and turn away from the forces of darkness. There is quite a list there and I want to tackle first things first. works of their hands, worshiping devils, pagan deities that people believe to be gods, when they are made of wood, and some crafted from silver, pottery, and covered in gold.

It is still an idol, made with human hands or more so machinery in modern times, nevertheless, WORTHLESS creations thought from human minds inspired by demonic beings and they fall down and WORSHIP these idols.

THERE IS NO GOD except JEHOVAH GOD, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, THE I AM THAT I AM, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, AND THE ONLY SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. Period, everything else is a cheap demonic attempt to sway unstable minds who WANT a god that can be served amidst their filth and human degradation.

ISAIAH 40:18-25: ” To whom then will you liken God? (who can be compared to Him) or what likeness will you compare unto him? The workman melteth (moulds) an IMAGE, and the goldsmith spreadeth over it gold, and casteth silver chains ( silversmith casts it). He that is so impoverished (SO POOR) that he hath no oblation (can not afford to purchase idol) chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh a cunning workman (skilled craftsman) TO PREPARE A GRAVEN IMAGE, that shall not be moved (totter). 

Have ye NOT known? have ye NOT heard? hath it not been TOLD you from the beginning? have ye NOT understood FROM THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH?  It IS HE that sitteth upon (above) the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that strecheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth the out as a tent to dwell in:

That bringeth (reduces) the princes to nothing: he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity (useless). Yea, they shall not (scarcely) be planted; yea, they shall not (scarcely) be sown: yea, their stock shall not (scarcely) take root in the earth: and he SHALL BLOW UPON THEM, and they SHALL WITHER, and THE WHIRLWIND SHALL TAKE THEM AWAY AS STUBBLE.

TO WHOM THEN WILL YE LIKEN ME, OR SHALL I BE EQUAL? SAITH THE HOLY ONE.”

I love how He dead nails how they create those things that they will worship, many old timers believed this was against the tradition of having a Christmas tree, but it is clearly  against their hewing idols out of every imaginable material. I also love the fact that he starts with WHO? Who may anyone DARE to compare with Him?

And the added THEN, THEN after all these things come to pass, WHO will they dare compare to be His equal in might, strength, or power? Certainly not dead tree trunks that have been dressed in even the finest of gold and silver. They will still be exactly as they are.. DEAD.

Having not eyes, ears, or speech. They cannot see man, They can not hear cries, and certainly they shall never speak even an utterance of deliverance. The Lord who SAW what He had SPOKEN into creation as good. He came down and SPOKE and WALKED with Adam and Eve in the garden, He SAW that they were naked, He SPOKE with ABRAHAM, He and His angels met with him there because the Lord HEARD the cries of Sodom, The Lord who SAW Hagar crying in the wilderness, and she named that place Lahairoi,  The well of “HE WHO LIVES, sees and hears ME.

“He SAW what Moses held in his hand upon his commission, He HEARD the cries of the Hebrews against their oppression. He heard all the cries of Israel during their many times of obedience mingled with disobedience and each time they were about to be swallowed up by their enemies, he HEARD those cries. He heard the futile arguments of every prophet He sent forth and SPOKE encouragement to them.

He SAW the abominations the wicked priests committed in HIS temple and he SPOKE forth the orders of their executions. He Spoke to the disciples and all the crowds that followed as he WALKED upon earth, and upon sea.  He SPOKE to the demons that they would flee. He SPOKE to disease that it should be no more. He HEARD as the crowds screamed for His death and He SPOKE of forgiveness.

 The entire Bible is comprised about a LIVING,SEEING, HEARING, SPEAKING GOD! He STILL sees all earth, including you and me. He STILL speaks to those who will listen. He STILL WALKS upon the circle of the earth and in heaven and one day soon, upon His earthly return will stand upon Mount Olives and will Walk His city of New Jerusalem.

So,WHO will you compare Him to? His IS the only true, LIVING GOD, and as HE said “there IS no other”. Idols can not save, pagan beliefs will never deliver. and all the devil wants is to take you to hell with him because he KNOWS he is already condemned for all of eternity to burn there and he will be suffering eternally with all he deceived, he will be NO king in hell, and as scripture states, those he has deceived will ask him if he has become as weak as they. It is no fairy tale and all of earth declares His glory, but HE WILL NOT give that glory to another. It is not about tolerance or keeping peace, it is about souls and eternity and you HAVE a choice NOW, a choice you will not have when all these things come to pass. Today IS the day of salvation, CHOOSE whom you will serve and choose wisely.

COMMANDMENT #1 “THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.”  Jesus NEVER changes, His word does NOT change, COMMANDMENTS DO NOT CHANGE. No matter what you have been taught or thought NOTHING will change the events in the book of Revelation, not believing WILL NOT change it because God DOES NOT NEED US TO BELIEVE IN HIM TO EXIST.

If you have been lured into these pagans thoughts and pagan religions, don’t by the tolerance line as a reason for not speaking against false beliefs either, just remember that Eve thought that eating the fruit would make her wise! The enemy lures us with the promise of knowledge when it is reality deception and we become wise only in our own eyes!

The pagan idols is but a drop in the bucket to the real idolatry that this verse speaks of. Especially in our modern culture, I always loved the term “teen idol” the name alone should strike a nerve of what this star worship really implies. Our world has idols of money,houses, vehicles or social status and prestige. Idols of sex,  did all the crazed men really worship Monroe or Betty Page because they thought they would make fine mothers for future children? How about women flocking to see male “exotic” dancers? Is the attraction there because those huge muscles  would come in handy doing yard work at their future love nest?

Even denominations,and “spiritual” movements can become idols, Anyone wanna question whether Jim Jones “congregation” was following him and WORSHIPING HIM or were they really following the true God? when the denomination is worshipped rather than the creator, and the cult mentality and pounding music of a certain new “spiritual” movement taking over peoples mind and completely brainwashing them to the truth and it never speaks a word of wisdom only the lull of “listen to the music and fall into worship”. SCARY, SCARY business right there, and what scares me the most is seeing it go on right under  Pastor’s noses and they never even notice that something is not quite right.

We can WORSHIP anything and ANYTHING that has a higher ranking than God does in our lives IS an IDOL, and it is not always sex, drugs, alcohol,and gambling and with most idolatry, we seem to think God would approve because it makes us happy and makes us feel good! And yet.. another thing in the list of many that just does not quite get it with God.

Maybe you have even never heard the true word of God, whatever the case may be. If you serve and worship ANY other than Jesus Christ, I am pleading with you to please, please take time to rethink your position, ask why you believe what you believe and the what is the evidence for that belief and THEN discover the TRUTH for yourself before it is too late.

BLESSED/ THE BETROTHED, AND THE BEHEADED / PART 2

Revelation 7:9,10: “And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for word of God, and for the testimony which they held; and they cried with a loud voice, saying How long, O long, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on earth? And white robes were given unto every one of; and it was said unto them, THAT THEY SHOULD  YET REST A LITTLE SEASON, UNTIL THEIR FELLOW SERVANTS ALSO AND THEIR BRETHREN THAT SHOULD BE (WILL BE) KILLED AS THEY WERE, SHOULD BE FULFILLED.”
                                 
So much for not remembering being on earth, not only do they remember, they know they were murdered and they want justice.
I think the preppers have the right ideal they just need a little guidance. They know something is coming and are attempting to prepare for it, they know they will not be able to buy what they need and will need to protect themselves. They just don’t know exactly why, yet, the answer to that question can be answered with nine words, the anti Christ and the mark of the beast.
It is imperative that we really start getting THIS Gospel out.
The chapters of the book no one wants to preach, because it usually scares people, which can run them away and for money churches that is not a viable option, because money  and  prestige  are far more important than saving souls.
For others they just do not want to have to deal with it.
But who does? It is scary and anyone who thinks I enjoy these parts of my job, you better pray and think again.
I have spent years studying these scriptures and crying countless tears because I KNOW what is coming and people can blow me off or laugh, but as with the prophets of old, the day came that they found out that it wasn’t so funny anymore.
But I am sure you do your job, and this is mine, I often use this analogy that I feel is very accurate, If you saw someone who you knew to be completely deaf standing on a railroad track, facing backward to a speeding freight train, that they could not hear or see coming, would you try to pull them out-of-the-way or would you just stand and watch them die?
I SEE A WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE ON THAT TRACK.
I SEE THE FREIGHT TRAIN SPEEDING TOWARD THEM AND I AM VERY, VERY AFRAID THAT THERE IS NOT MUCH TIME TO GET THEM OFF THAT TRACK.
Then those who laugh because they find this so funny so outrageous, because their deafened ears can’t hear the sound of that train, in their pride and arrogance they choose to believe that it is not coming, and this is when the laughter will stop.
The laughter will stop when millions of people disappear without a trace from the face of the earth.
The laughter will stop when world events others had tried to warn them of begins to unfold all around them.
The laughter will stop when what everyone thought was a prosperous peace for all deal goes south after three and a half years.
The laughter will stop when the anti-Christ reveals his true plans demanding that everyone in the world must worship him.
The laughter will stop when all must pledge allegiance to him by taking his mark. (His counterfeit to the sealing of the servants of God)
The laughter will stop when those who wish to resist will suddenly find that no amount of money, no credit cards, not even pure gold bars will purchase food, medicine anything they may need because without his mark you will not be able to sell or buy. How long can you live without food, water, shelter, heat. What if a loved one is sick, what about medicine, or baby diapers or milk?
Now would be a good time to ask the church you found so amusing for help, but wait the church is no longer there.
It has been taken, those who trusted God are now protected against the fulfillment of these days.
Maybe you can hold out for a while with the goods you have on hand, but the days will follow shortly after most have been marked and it will be a little harder to hide, then they will give you one final choice, you take this mark or you die.
Think this is bad, well it can get worse, because if you happen to live in “Mystery Babylon the Great”  you will not even have the option of beheading. It will be destroyed from the face of the earth in a separate judgment and once all this begins those living there, will just simply be dead, and never have the chance to repent again.
By this point all laughter will have ceased. But I still want to give hope, I  do believe the mark will get a lot of them, because lets face it people are so sold out to Satan now and they’ll bust your head over a good deal at Christmas, so why would half of them even resist?
I know there are those who worry about being tricked or chipped into taking it. But I promise you this can not happen.
Jesus loves us all too much to let us be tricked into losing our souls and he has  ANGELS PROCLAIM THIS everyone will be conscious of their decision.
Revelation 14: 6-11: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven HAVING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL TO PREACH UNTO THE EARTH, AND EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED,AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory: for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

And there  followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,

IF ANY MAN WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND RECEIVE HIS MARK IN HIS FOREHEAD, OR IN HIS HAND. THE SAME SHALL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD, WHICH IS POURED OUT WITHOUT MIXTURE (FULL FORCE) into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME.”                                          
                      
   
Jesus said in Luke 21:17-19: “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair on your head perish. IN YOUR PATIENCE POSSESS YE YOUR SOULS.

Revelation 2:10,11:FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER: Behold, the devil shalt cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH, AND I WILL GIVE THEE A CROWN OF LIFE. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the churches; HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL NOT BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH.”
He tells us to keep our patience, don’t give up your soul, because you will arise just as he did, death will have no power over you and no matter what they do, not one hair will be lost upon resurrection.
Revelation 14:12,13: “Here in is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice out of heaven saying unto me, WRITE. BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHICH DIE IN THE LORD FROM HENCEFORTH (THIS POINT ON): YEA, SAITH THE SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY REST FROM THEIR LABOURS; AND THEIR WORKS DO FOLLOW THEM.”
                                    
                                              THIS IS THEIR BLESSING:
Revelation 20:4-6: “And I saw thrones, and they that 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 WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER  HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK IN THEIR FOREHEADS OR HANDS; AND THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS. but the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. BLESSED AND HOLY IS HE WHO HATH PART IN THE FIRST RESSURECTION ON SUCH THE SECOND DEATH HATH NO POWER, BUT THEY SHALL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND SHALL REIGN WITH HIM ONE THOUSAND YEARS.”
                                     
Once the beheadings happen, God will then begin to rain judgment on this earth, upon all who did not heed the call of the angels but that is a subject for another day.

BLESSED / THE BETROTHED AND THE BEHEADED PART 1

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then those that are alive and remain (are saved) shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
The rapture of the church, the return of the Lamb to retrieve his Bride, having paid her bride price with his own blood.
Giving his life that she may live, the ancient Jewish customs proving faithful as the souls of believers confess “You are my Savior” echoing “I am my beloveds and he is mine.”
Having gone away to prepare a place for her, being  reminiscent of the protective, seclusion of the wedding canopy.
He will now return with the army of his companions to take her away to the “secret dwelling place of the Most High” until all things can be fulfilled on earth.
 And he does this because we could not bear to witness the carnage and bloodshed that will overflow this earth.
As in Ezekiel, when those who were supposed to be his servants  filled his temple with filth and abominations, at the cries of his people who could not stand seeing his temple defiled, he then determined that the end for them had come, he called forth his angels, Ezekiel 9:4-6 “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and SET A MARK upon the foreheads of the men ( humans) that sigh and cry for the abominations that are done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing (so I could hear), Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids and little children, and women: but COME NOT NEAR ANY MAN UPON WHOM IS THE MARK; and BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY.”
Just as judgment must begin at the house of the Lord.
He always deals with his people first and we shall see one day just as with this story, what will become of those who hold doctrines not quite true to the word of God.
Lets do a little mirror image on this and see the reflection.
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, HAVING THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, TILL WE HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.” Revelation 7:2,3
As all things foreshadow those which are to come, only it will come on a much grander scale.
Revelation 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any tree; but only those men which HAVE NOT THE SEAL OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.”
We who are alive and have remained faithful to our bridegroom and kept our faith, will be removed from this earth just as he protected Noah and his family from the flood.
Lot and his daughters were spared from the destruction of Sodom, on behalf of the intercession by Abram.
This is what the Lord speaks over us: Isaiah 26:19,20
“Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. AWAKE and sing, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, AND THE EARTH SHALL CAST OUT HER DEAD.
COME MY PEOPLE, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee: HIDE thyself as it were, but for a moment, UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST.”
We must be ready when that call comes, because only those who have accepted Christ will be in this gathering.
THOSE WHO REMAIN ON THIS EARTH AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH WILL ONLY BE SAVED BY  REFUSING TO WORSHIP THE ANTI CHRIST  AND REFUSING TO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND BEING BEHEADED.
Maybe people who may not yet be ready to commit will soon see, all we need to do is watch the news. Israel is almost completely surrounded by enemies as the Lord said would happen and the heart breaking beheading of the first two journalists revealing an eerie clue, the first a Christian, the second a Jew.
Facts probably unknown at the time to their captors, all things are prophetic when you look at what is really there.
So to all who are not saved, please do not wait, if you feel the tug of God, please accept him before it is to late. You do not want to be left on this earth.
His promise to us: Revelation 19:7-9  “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. And he said unto me. WRITE. BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE CALLED UNTO THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB. and he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”
Please accept his invitation, because this is one dinner you do not want to miss.
