“The terror in tempting God”

 “And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, THOU SHALT NOT TEMPT THE LORD THY GOD.”  Luke 4: 12

You know, I really have a love/hate relationship with the internet and social media. And I will admit that on more than one occasion I have wished, and probably prayed that it would all crash for just a week or two and  I know people would be screaming at that statement about how the WHOLE world would become crippled and all the VITAL operations such as utilities, hospitals, etc that DEPEND on the world-wide web.

But does anyone ever think about how VITAL your soul and the salvation of that soul from an eternal hell is? That maybe our brains need some quite time to THINK about something other than this world.

I do realize that technology is used for many good things but it has really been pivotal in making our friends now cyber friend and when people would once attend parties and showers just to visit and catch up with family, now they just have to check them out on Facebook to know every single detail of their lives.

And people are so gung-ho to spew off every single hate filled remark and thought that leaps to mind because they don’t have to actually say it to that persons face. No count to ten there.

And words and vulgarity that was once viewed with distaste and left belonging in bars and beer-joints is now nothing but common, complete in the form of memes and page names with f*** and people post this trash like nothing.

Is it really that impressive to know all your foul four letters words and to post bedroom pictures to prove modern-day libido?

NO, it is not.

It is just a little more of what we were warned of in the Bible, the “god” of this world blinding minds to the truth.

And no one seems to want to call it out or at least call it what it is and it is not that much different from what Jesus was speaking of concerning the Pharisees, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into a ditch?” 

But yet instead of shunning this behavior people flock to it, just like lambs to slaughter. By laughing at, reposting, and allowing those thoughts to enter their own minds and souls. And “partaking of another man’s sin”, which we were also warned against.

Every bad idea that became an acceptable norm BEGAN as the “wicked imaginations” of ONE PERSON’S HEART!

Think about that!

Just as it is in scripture, story after story of ONE PERSON’S bad idea becoming the reality for everyone, WITH FRIENDS LIKE THAT..

And as is so often said about prayer being removed from schools, ONE WOMAN, any and all IDEAS are always born from ONE and then it spreads, one person sees or hears and thinks “Wow, that sounds good” and then they spread it and like the disease that it is, it spread and spreads.

This IS what happened when God sent the flood.

Genesis 6:5-7: “And God SAW that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that EVERY imagination (intent) of the thoughts of his heart WAS only evil CONTINUALLY (ALL day long).  

And it repented the Lord ( He was SORRY) that he MADE man on the earth, and IT GRIEVED HIM AT HIS HEART.  

And the Lord said, I WILL DESTROY MAN WHOM I HAVE CREATED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; FOR IT REPENTETH ME THAT I HAVE MADE THEM.  

Imagine the very one who gave life regretting giving that life because it became so vile and wicked. What do you think he thinks about our behaviors now?

And as with ALL sin this has consequences and as it is spread and taught it is DESTROYING the new generations, just as the fall of man with the flood destroyed the rest of creation right along side them.

Now to get to the main point, I am constantly amazed by the disrespect so many have for God and the constant jokes about hell and the “devil-may-care” attitude so many have concerning hell.

Oh and believe me THE DEVIL  DOES CARE,  he cares because he wants to take all he can TO HELL with him.

And all these memes and jokes making fun of Christians and making fum of hell, just as if they are seriously DARING God to send them to hell horrifies me!

I have written quite extensively on this subject, so rather than be redundant, I just loaded this post with live “gold” links, so if your interested in much more scripture on these subjects please click your way that way!

But  in the mean time, I felt impressed to do it again, and as a watchman, it is my job to make sure you are “EN GARDE” and hopefully this will help someone see things for what they really are.

It is not that they even DENY the existence of God, or even the existence of hell, but that the practically cock-up and POINT OUT their sins and then have statements like “well, I guess I’m going to hell” and that is such a display of arrogance, proof of absolute ignorance to the truth but also the audacity to be so spiritually corrupt that they are TEMPTING a Holy LIVING being who has ALL power over them to “go ahead and do it”, for complete lack of better words.

Now the Bible tells us much concerning false teachers BUT  anyone whose “voice” you hear IS teaching you whether it is good or bad, and people are being TAUGHT by whatever is being constantly fed into their minds.

2 Peter 2:2 & 12: And MANY shall FOLLOW their pernicious (destructive) ways;  by whom the way of truth shall be EVIL SPOKEN OF (blasphemed)

But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed,SPEAK EVIL OF THE THINGS THEY UNDERSTAND NOT; and shall utterly perish in their OWN corruption.” 

They DON’T understand it and in their own self-conceit they try to reason with a human mind what can only be understood spiritually and that will in no way allow anyone to escape standing in account for those actions.

I have often wondered what these will do when they are faced with God, as we are promised in Romans 14:11,12: “For it is written, AS I LIVE, SAITH THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS GOD.  

So then EVERY ONE OF US SHALL GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF TO GOD.” 

In the end, IT IS NO GOING TO MATTER, if you say “Well, I just didn’t believe” GOD? WHAT GOD?   or if you are Playing with paganism  and say that you are a Muslim, Buddhist, whatever false religion you want to choose.  will not save you! 

Counting on being a wee witchy  and hoping the occult can help you out… and  I think not… HE HAS ALL POWER!

If you want to live on top of a mountain and try to PRETEND to God that you never heard the truth or if you live in Timbuktu, IT IS NOT GOING TO MATTER because we ALL will give that account.

Check out this verse, God talking to the Prophet Ezekiel concerning those who mistakenly thought that God did not see and did not know what they did.

Ezekiel 8:12: “Then he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen( have YOU seen) what the ancients (elders) of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery  (room of his idols)

For they SAY, THE LORD SEETH US NOT; THE LORD AND THE LORD HATH FORSAKEN EARTH.

And I can’t help wonder today just how many think that they will continue to mock God and hell and that they can actually save themselves from the terror that is going to bring.

Hebrews 11:31: ” It IS a fearful thing to fall into the hands of  a living God.” 

So if you don’t want to believe… don’t… but don’t be thinking that you are NOT going to be held accountable for your actions on this earth, because you will.

And if you think it’s going to be that funny, and that everybody’s going to be having a big “party in hell” you better think again  “MAKING RESERVATIONS FOR HELL” 

And if you are still smiling after that, check this one out,  Laughing their way RIGHT INTO HELL…. 

Finally if you see this stuff or someone you know starts expressing these attitudes, warn them, you can be gentle about, but it is time to tell them that he will not be mocked and part of being in the kingdom is sometimes telling others what they don’t want to hear.

I know for me, and others that I know, we are truly grateful for those who DID tell us the truth and DID share with us the Gospel and DID love us enough to warn us that He is real and so is eternity and hell.

And once someone accepts Christ they do realize how foolish and blind they have been.

So don’t let them continue on blindly, lead them in the truth, they may get mad, they may say mean hurtful things and tell you where you can go and how you can get there BUT keep planting those seeds because when that person comes to Christ they will know the truth that truth will set them free and they will now that in a world of “music to their ears” that you loved them enough to play for them a different tune.

And if you have been pulling these stunts, you’d better be thinking about WHO you are really insulting and knock it off and ask forgiveness while you can, you may think it’s funny today but you’re gonna bow either way and you are far better in his mercy than in is wrath!

Tearing it down

“Go ye, inquire of the Lord for me, and for the people, and for all of Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the Lord that is kindled against us, for our fathers have not hearkened unto (heeded) the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.

Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, the keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.

And she said unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me, Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read: Because they have forsaken me, and burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

But to the king of Judah which sent you to inquire of the Lord, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard; Because thy heart was tender; and thou humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation, and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes (in repentance), and wept before me: I also have heard thee, saith the Lord.

Behold therefore, I will gather thee to thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.

And the king sent, and gathered unto him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem. And the king went up into the house of the Lord, and ALL the men of Judah and ALL the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priest, and the prophets, and ALL the people , both small and great : and HE READ IN ALL THEIR EARS ALL THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT which was found in the house of the Lord.

And the king stood by a pillar, and MADE A COVENANT BEFORE THE LORD, to walk after the Lord, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statues with ALL THEIR HEART and ALL their SOUL, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book, And ALL the people stood to the covenant.” 2 Kings 22:13-30 & chapter 23:1-4

Heard something so disturbing the other day on the radio, seventy percent of Americans IDENTIFY (our new hot word) as Christians BUT only ten percent adhere to the “Christian” code of morality.

Meaning sixty percent of that seventy percent think it is okay to lie, cheat, steal, and have no reason to attend any church services. I really wish that surprised me but it doesn’t because our new IT word for the generation is IDENTIFY and we can be whatever we choose as long as we IDENTIFY as such and pledge allegiance to that identity grouping.

Scares me to death and God Bless and God help the pastors, or rather the REAL ones. My mind always goes back  to a story, I think around a year ago about a “pastor” and his “family that had been voted one of America’s greatest “families”. Yeah.. this guy and his “wife”, who is also a guy, with some seriously beautiful long braids, which is exactly what the “pastor” said in the interview, that “he was just beautiful and he fell in love with him” to make matters worse (and yes, people can go from bad to better enjoy life on this earth cause it’s over in the next) they got “married” on a beach compete with taking communion, to partake of the Lord’ supper unworthy makes that person, or persons actually guilty of the blood of Jesus.

Mighty dangerous territory, attempting to “sanctify” an abomination by committing more ungodliness. Now they also adopted a child and had a thriving “church” while all the long God’s word speaks AGAINST all this.

We now know why sixty percent of the proclaimed “Christians” think they are perfectly fine just as they are.  None of them want to hear the true word of God, the BITTER that MUST BE taken with the sweet.

The CURSING that come from disobedience when all they hear about is the blessing with ever being told the requirements of obedience that bring those blessings. The LOVE and never the wrath that love can bring.

Such as our story above, they had to quickly try to rectify a situation that they were not even aware of UNTIL the book was found, in our world “How can they hear without a preacher and how can they preach unless they are sent?”

And preached to ALL the people and ALL the ears and told, without apologies that NOTHING other than a FULL COMMITMENT to the Lord and being SAVED and COVERED BY THE BLOOD and doing what He said.

So they sought the Lord and once the were answered, they MADE SURE that EVERYONE also understood His word and repented and agreed to the covenant.

Then they set about TEARING DOWN the pagan altars: 2 Kings 23:4-8,10-15,19,20,24:

“And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order; and the keepers of the door, to bring forth OUT of the temple of the Lord ALL the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for the host of heaven (sun, etc. worship): And he BURNT them without (outside) Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them into Bethel.

And he put down (caused to cease) the idolatrous (pagan) PRIESTS, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places of the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; THEM ALSO that burnt incense UNTO BAAL, TO THE SUN, AND TO THE MOON, AND TO PLANETS, AND TO ALL THE HOST OF HEAVEN.

And he brought OUT the grove FROM the house of the Lord, without (outside) Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and BURNT it at the brook Kidron, and STAMPT it small as powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.

And he BRAKE DOWN the HOUSES OF THE SODOMITES, that WERE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, where the women wove hangings FOR the grove.

And he BROUGHT ALL the priests OUT of the cities of Judah, and DEFILED (destroyed) the high places WHERE THE PRIESTS HAD BURNT INCENSE, from Geba to Beer-Sheba, and BRAKE DOWN the high places of the gates that were in the entering of in of the gate of Joshua the Governor of the city, which were on a man’s left hand at the gate of the city.

And he defiled (destroyed) Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, THAT NO MAN MIGHT MAKE HIS SON OR DAUGHTER TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE TO MOLECH.

And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah HAD GIVEN THE SUN, at the entering of the house of the Lord, by the chamber of Nathan-melech the chamberlain (eunuch) which was in the suburbs, and BURNT THE CHARIOTS OF THE SUN WITH FIRE.

And the ALTARS that were on top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah HAD MADE, and the ALTARS which Manasseh HAD MADE in the two courts of the house of the Lord, did the king BEAT DOWN, and BRAKE THEM from thence(there) and cast dust of them into the brook Kidron.

And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were at the right hand of the MOUNT OF CORRUPTION, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded FOR ASHTORETH, the ABOMINATION of the Moabites, and MILCOM the ABOMINATION of the children of Ammon, DID THE KING DEFILE (destroy).

And he BRAKE INTO PIECES the images (idols) and CUT DOWN the groves, and filled their places with the bones of men. And ALL the houses also of the high places that were in the city of Samaria, which the kings of Israel HAD MADE to provoke the Lord to anger, Josiah TOOK AWAY, and did to them according to all the cats he had done in Bethel.

And he SLEW ALL THE PRIESTS of the high places that were upon the altars, and burnt men’s bones upon them, and returned to Jerusalem. Moreover (also) the WORKERS WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS (physics, mediums, etc.) and the WIZARDS, and the IMAGES (teraphim, occult objects)  and the IDOLS, and ALL THE ABOMINATIONS that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah PUT AWAY, that HE MIGHT PERFORM THE WORDS OF THE LAW ACCORDING WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the Lord.” 

I do apologize for my bold/ not bold/ caps actions… but when writing it is a little harder to put emphasis on what I want to jump out and get your attention….. so did you notice that the priests, second priests,and door keepers, all those involved in the temple WERE who had the task of getting these abominations out of His house.

Why would that change now? It doesn’t, it is our job to root out and no longer continue to look over these behaviors, and TELL the world that it is NOT okay and that their behavior has nothing to do with OUR GOD, and as the prophet in 1 Kings 13, we must CRY against the pagan ALTARS that are trying to set up and call themselves “churches” notice also that these things were at the entry ways and set up by those in power and gladly accepted by the so-called priests of the day, much like this world. And it is our job to tear them down in the spirit world through prayer and by the prayer of pulling down strong holds.

We can no longer continue to preach comfort (while it is good) and encouragement, one to another (which is good also) BUT it is PAST TIME, that God’s commandments, laws, and statues be truly preached, not just suggestion for living, but preached as He said it, as it is written. And start preaching judgment, hell, and the afterlife.

And that THERE IS NO EXCEPTIONS TO HIS RULES ON SIN. Sin is sin, He will forgive us, but we have to ask for forgiveness and to TEACH WHAT sin is and stop doing it.

But as long as there are those who contend for their fables of man-made salvation and have television shows and huge ministries that are allowed to pervert the Gospel, unopposed, as long as believers just sit mutely by, this is only going to get worse and it is either stand now or forget it. 

If anyone believes He is going to allow the perversion of His word and His “house” much longer, you might want to think again. At ten percent we are nearing the end.

But with only ten percent left we know it is bad, really bad and if you are ever, ever going to stand for anything let it be the Gospel of Christ. Because at this rate, our generation may well be the last one standing!

GROOVY GURU’S AND GOOEY GUMDROPS

Just a thought or two, to follow through with EN GARDE, just in case you were ambushed by a swordsman that was not quite all there up there, as far as sound doctrinal teachings go.
We all know the real battle is not always against the forces of darkness, the biggest battle is against the unsound, self pleasing, fleshing loving teachings of the ultra- modern, all grace- no repentance necessary crew.
Heavily armored with their sleek and chic groovy leaders, mega preachers who tweak the King James to provide their own point of view on what that scripture really means, producing Bishop I. Sure do Love-cash’s personal daily devotional bible and the revelation God(?) gave them for free, can now be yours for seventy nine ninety-five.
And you can bet that new “inspired” word will give you lots of lifestyle options, oh, my bad, forgot my politically correctitude, I mean “lifestyle choices”, right? 
Dripping with gooey gumdrops of inspiration, one hundred percent free of the “rigors of being chained down by the commandments”.
 Wanna leave your spouse and children for your old sweetheart?
Have at it!
Don’t even like your wife anymore, think you may actually be into dudes?
Well, have a go at that too! 
That is not a problem, YOU were meant to be happy!
Because the groovy gurus want your flesh to be well cared for so their pockets will be full!
Want a new car? Instead of taking that extra hundred bucks and secretly giving it to someone who is struggling, SOW IT TO THEIR MINISTRY, get a return on that money, and get that new car!
After all, YOU work hard, YOU deserve it!
Forget the elderly lady next door who goes to bed hungry, or a family that has suffered a layoff that may be struggling or the single mom who decides between feeding her kids and feeding herself.
NO! That televangelist REALLY NEEDS a new suit and manicure. (without it the rest of the kiddies may make fun)
How do we resist the hypnotic, charismatic charm that so easily tries to sway us from true doctrine?
For Paul’s take on this, let’s go to the WORD, shall we?

2 CORINTHIANS 11:3-6, 13-15: But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled (deceived) Eve THROUGH HIS SUBTILITY (CRAFTINESS), so your MINDS should BE CORRUPTED from the simplicity that IS CHRIST.
For if he that cometh PREACHING ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have NOT preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER (different) GOSPEL, which ye have not , ye might well bear with him.
For I suppose (consider) I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostle (at all inferior to them).
But though I be rude (untrained) in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have thoroughly made manifest among you in all things.
FOR SUCH (these) ARE FALSE APOSTLES, DECEITFUL WORKERS, transforming themselves INTO the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel (no surprise): FOR SATAN HIMSELF CAN TRANSFORM INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT.
Therefore IT IS NO GREAT THING if HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED AS MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; whose END shall be according to THEIR WORKS.

GALATIANS 1:8 ” BUT though WE, or AN ANGEL from heaven, PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you THAN THAT WHICH WE HAVE PREACHED UNTO YOU, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.
Guard your Mind:
PHILIPIANS 3:15-20: Let us therefore, as many as be perfect (mature) be thus minded; and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Nevertheless, whereunto we have already attained (the point we are in our walk) let us WALK by the SAME RULE, let us mind the same thing ( be of the same mind).
Brethren, be followers together of me ( join me in following my example), and mark (note) them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample ( pattern).
(For MANY WALK, OF WHICH I HAVE TOLD YOU OFTEN, AND NOW TELL YOU EVEN WEEPING, THAT THEY ARE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST.)
JAMES 4:4 : Ye adulterers and adulteresses, {notice the reference to sexual immorality} know ye not (do you not know) that THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENEMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD.”

ROMANS 12:2: And be ye NOT CONFORMED to THIS WORLD: but be YE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, that ye may prove WHAT IS THAT GOOD, AND ACCEPTABLE, AND PERFECT, WILL OF GOD.

James 1:27: Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father IS THIS, TO VISIT THE FATHERLESS and WIDOWS IN THEIR AFFLICTION, and to keep himself UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD.

BELIEVE A LIE…. Part 2/ GOD? WHAT GOD?

Original post: 07/25/2014 FOWC/ AVENUE
The world has a saying, “if you want help, you must be willing to admit that you have a problem.”
This world has bad problems and before I can give you good news, I first must show you the problems.
Before we go any farther down the road forewarning of things to come on this apocalyptic journey, what to expect and how to survive.
For my own peace of mind, I want to say to anyone who asks how can I say these things, how can I not?
I am not anti-American, or anti-anyone, I love people, I love my country and I did not wake up one morning and think to myself, “Hey, I sure would love to proclaim doom, death, and destruction over earth, wouldn’t that be fun?”
I am cut by the same sword that I weld.
I am doing what I have been called to do, I am a messenger, trumpet, mouthpiece, have your choice, it is the same job and as a trumpet if I see danger and fail to sound I am accountable.
As a messenger, if I do not share that message I am accountable and all watchmen are responsible for the blood of those they failed to warn.
We will be standing in judgment covered in the blood of those we failed and I am sure we will get to behold the destruction that may have been prevented had our jobs been done.
How could anyone profess to have love and not do that job?
And that is all that will ever be said about that subject.
On to Babylon, how does a nation fall so far from be blessed of the Lord t an absolute stench in his nostrils?
Again to reiterate, it is the blood, just as the blood of Abel cried out from the earth, God continually warned the Hebrews to not let the earth become polluted with blood and the stoning of people proved just how serious he was about that.
He says what he means and he means what he says.
That is why we pray for the healing of our land.
It really is irrelevant whether we are physically who polluted it, but rather that we acknowledge it and ask for forgiveness for the atrocities committed here.
Just as Job offered sacrifice for his family for forgiveness of the sins they may have committed.
From the beginning of the Bible:
Genesis 6:11-13 ” The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence THROUGH THEM; And I WILL destroy them with earth.”
End of the Bible:
Revelation 19:2.3 “For true and righteous are HIS judgments; for HE hath judged the great harlot, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and he hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand, and again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke went up for ever and ever.”
And all the Bible in between, warnings, judgments, and what all people, all nations must do to be saved.
Deuteronomy 8:11, 16-20 ” BEWARE that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues which I command thee this day;
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and he might prove thee, to do good at thy latter end; and thou say in thine heart, MY power and the might of MINE hand have gotten me this wealth. But thou shall shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto the fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them and worship them, I TESTIFY AGAINST YOU THIS DAY THAT YE SHALL PERSIH.
As the nations which the Lord destroyed before your face, so shall you perish; because you would not be obedient to the voice of your Lord your God.”
We have believed that WE made OURSELVES the great nation we once were.
We have bought the arrogant lies that OUR might and power have allowed us to control our destinies and that WE are just too great to fall.
In truth, only “a fool says in his heart, there is no God”.
We are trained from birth to have pride and believe all is beautiful and bright, the truth is we are no longer pilgrims, we have forgotten honor, kindness and true brotherly love.
There is nothing loving about a false sense of tolerance that leaves souls open to condemnation in hell.
Next time, Becoming Babylon.

ANCIENT, BUT NOT ALIEN / The deception

Sometimes it is just funny, the forest and the trees.
How people can fail to see what is actually right in front of their eyes.
Guess that is where spiritual blindness and human arrogance comes into play.
Some are starting to lightly hit on this subject and get people used to ideal.
But I don’t want to hit it lightly, I want to take a hammer to it.
The “best defense is a good offense” and before getting farther into the judgments, you have to realize that Satan, and the world have already prepped our minds to accept their version of reality.
“Ancient Aliens” shown on the History channel is a prime example, No, I don’t watch it but I have caught bits and pieces, because God has a way of keeping me up on events, even if it’s sometimes things I’d rather not know, such as immense cruelty and oppression, but it just makes me pray “Thy Kingdom Come” that much more earnestly.
I do want to see his Kingdom come and I truly, truly live for the day that Jesus reigns on this earth and his foes are his footstools and the forces of Hell bow at his feet.
Over the past few decades there has been a steady indoctrination of alien culture and this particular show has began to incorporate the belief that God may just be alien, and even hypothesizing that the Holy challis may have contained a homing device!
WOW!
This will make it mighty easy for them to explain away the last day movement of the Holy Spirit which will be far greater than anyone could have ever, ever have imagined, with miracles, healings, and movements so amazing as to convert those who are to be saved.
 The signs and wonders, the miracles that are for THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIVE, to prove out the existence of God. ( The movement, which I believe for other reasons will come under mass persecution with an attempt to forbid it, which again is quite comical because NO ONE STOPS GOD!)
And once the rapture takes place it will be all conveniently explained away as an alien abduction of billions plus people.
And once this takes place the appearing of the Son of Man will be equated to an invasion.
I am not alone in this thought, and have held it for many years but again, we really can’t fathom the reaction of nonbelievers to the “sky departing as a scroll” without mentioning the lie they will be fed to explain away the truth.
To continue with this series I would ask you to read my former post “Cardiac Shock” as this will be following up on that series.
When you ponder Bible quotes, it is easy to see why they would want to explain this away, Satan works in fear and if they are taught to fear the return of the only one who can save them, he has accomplished his purpose. So lets look at a few examples.
God created the Heaven and Earth, dividing the waters and sealing it off from the rest of the heavens.
It does not stop with what we believe to be our universe, HIS kingdom is actually located in the third heaven, ABOVE our known universe.
He and his angels CAME DOWN to speak with Abram and to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
He DESCENDED down to speak with Moses and deliver the commandments.
The angels COME DOWN to help, in his vision Jacob saw them DESCENDING AND ASCENDING between heaven and earth.
Enoch was TAKEN.

Elisha SAW Elijah TAKEN in a WHIRLWIND BY CHARIOTS OF FIRE.
What Ezekiel saw and tried to put into understandable words.
Jesus said He is from ABOVE, we are from beneath, he ASCENDED to His Father, who IS the Father of Lights and a consuming fire.
WE ARE FIRST FRUITS OF A KIND.
And my favorite, from Acts 1: 9-11
“And when he (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they BEHELD (watched) HE WAS TAKEN UP; AND A CLOUD RECEIVED HIM OUT OF THEIR SIGHT. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven AS HE WENT UP, two men (angels) stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, YE MEN OF GAILEE, WHY STAND YE GAZING UP INTO HEAVEN? THIS SAME JESUS, WHICH IS TAKEN UP FROM YOU INTO HEAVEN, SO SHALL COME IN LIKE MANNER AS YE HAVE SEEN HIM GO INTO HEAVEN.”
The list of interactions between heaven and earth could go on and on, but it is important to see the secular deception for what it is.
Again, Jesus said that He “Beheld Satan FALL as lightning TO THE EARTH.”
God promised He will never have us ignorant (kept in the dark) about these things.
Call it out and rebuke it, because HE IS ANCIENT, and He may very well be “alien”  (in the sense of as a stranger) to those who refuse to believe that He is indeed God but we need to lead all we can to the truth so that “that day does not come upon them, unawares.”
 HE IS coming back. IT WILL be a lot of things but pretty WILL NOT be one of them!
For the unsaved and non believers, it will be one of the most horrifying events in human history.
For the first fruits it will be the dawning of a new day, the beginning of the reign of our God as King of Earth, a day that I personally live for and they can call Him whatever they choose, and refuse to see it for what it really is, but call it whatever…

I call Him God and He is Ancient and He is only alien to those who refuse to believe!

OLD GOAT AND THE CANDY COATS/ PART 2 "SUGAR DECAY"

We are often told that too much of anything can be really bad. Dentists love to tell us to lay off the sugar or it will rot our teeth. And too much sugar-coated gospel will damage your soul or maybe I should say it will lead to the condemnation of your soul.
 I like sweet things! I know the Lord is love, he is mercy, forgiveness and grace BUT he has rules he established that we should all live by and they are for our good! He will not accept anything less. He will not change his word to suddenly declare a behavior acceptable after he has already said that it is not. I want people saved and I know what is being taught today, so please read these scriptures, read the Bible for yourself and never let anyone “fool” you out of your soul by pleasing your flesh.
Last time we looked at scriptures that were given to give us a heads up about these people and the dangers of being anywhere near them and believe me that did not even skim the surface of the amount of Bible teaching on the subject.

Titus 1:10-11,13,15-16: “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially those of the circumcision: WHOSE MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED, who subvert whole houses, TEACHING THINGS WHICH THEY OUGHT NOT, FOR FILTHY LUCRE’S SAKE (MONEY) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke the sharply, that they may be sound in the faith. Unto the pure all things are pure:  BUT UNTO THEM THAT ARE DEFILED AND UNBELIEVING IS NOTHING PURE; EVEN THEIR MIND AND CONSCIENCE IS DEFILED. THEY PROFESS TO KNOW GOD; BUT IN WORKS THEY DENY HIM, BEING ABOMINABLE, AND DISOBEDIENT, AND UNTO EVERY GOOD WORK A REPROBATE.”

2 Peter 2:12-14,17-19: “But these as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of things they understand not: AND SHALL UTTERLY PERISH IN THEIR OWN CORRUPTION; and shall receive the reward of their unrighteousness, as they count it pleasure to riot in the day time.

Spots they are and blemishes, SPORTING THEMSELVES WHILE THEY FEAST WITH YOU; HAVING EYES FULL OF ADULTERY, THAT CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN; BEGUILING (ENTICING) UNSTABLE SOULS: AN HEART THEY HAVE EXERCISED WITH COVETOUS PRACTICES; CURSED CHILDREN: THESE ARE WELLS WITHOUT WATER, CLOUDS THAT ARE CARRIED WITH A TEMPEST; TO WHOM THE MIST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOR EVER. FOR WHEN THEY SPEAK GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF VANITY,THEY ALLURE THROUGH THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THROUGH MUCH WANTONNESS, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. WHILE THEY PROMISE LIBERTY, THEY THEMSELVES ARE SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, and of the same he is brought in bondage.”

 Jude:11,12: “WOE UNTO THEM! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward (profit), and perished in the gainsaying of Core, THESE ARE SPOTS IN YOUR FEASTS OF CHARITY, WHEN THEY FEAST WITH YOU, FEEDING THEMSELVES WITHOUT FEAR: CLOUDS THEY ARE WITHOUT WATER, CARRIED ABOUT OF WINDS; TREES WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH, WITHOUT FRUIT, TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS; “

       
We are told almost verbatim, a couple of things, they claim to represent God their actions  prove otherwise, they are wells who have no water, dry and lacking the spirit, they are clouds being blown in every direction with every new  fad because they go in the way that will profit them financially and in pleasing the popular crowd.

So let’s look at their ultimate end and what GOD has to say is their demise.

Isaiah 5:18-21,23,24:  “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were a cart rope: That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!   

WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!

WOE UNTO THEM THAT ARE WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES, AND PRUDENT IN THEIR OWN SIGHT! WHICH JUSTIFY THE WICKED FOR A REWARD, AND TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RIGHTEOUS FROM HIM! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, SO AS THEIR ROOT SHALL BE ROTTENNESS, and their blossom shall go up as dust: BECAUSE THEY HAVE CAST AWAY (DISREGARDED) THE LAW OF THE LORD OF HOST AND DESPISED THE WORD OF THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.”      

Finally, flee from them, have no part and do not listen to their poison doctrine, even out of curiosity because it is a disgrace. and it is cursed!

.
Galatians 1:6-9: “I marvel not that you are so soon removed (turning away) from him that called you into the gospel of Christ UNTO ANOTHER GOSPEL: WHICH IS NOT ANOTHER;BUT THERE BE SOME THAT TROUBLE YOU, AND WOULD (WANT TO) PERVERT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. BUT THOUGH WE, OR ANY ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL UNTO YOU, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.  AS WE SAID BEFORE, SO SAY I NOW AGAIN, IF ANY MAN PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL UNTO YOU THAN THAT YE HAVE RECEIVED, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.”               
He wants you saved, He died for YOUR SINS, so if the candy coats tell you that there is no sin, well as the Bible says that if any of us say we have no sin, we are liars,  just think of them as a little too sweet,  fake friends who smile in your face as you pull a knife out of your back, because a real friend will love you enough to tell you the truth.

OLD GOAT AND THE CANDY COATS/ PART1

One of our most beloved historical events in American history is the ride of Paul Revere, as he proclaimed “The British are coming! The British are coming!”
I kinda got this in my head as I pondered my lead in for this blog, I feel like Chicken Little sometimes too. Are they ever going to believe me that the sky really is falling?
But as a messenger of the Lord, I haven’t the option of being a chicken, so I’ll go with Revere, only I am kinda short so I’d have to ride a Shetland Pony, but it’s all gonna end the same!
My proclamation would be, “The candy coats are coming! The candy coats are coming! Then half way through I’d dismount my trusty steed, because THE CANDY COATS ARE ALREADY HERE AND NO ONE EVEN TRIED TO RESIST THEIR INVASION!
“This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous (money lovers), boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, slanders (without self-control)
fierce (brutal) despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady(reckless) high minded (haughty and proud) lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof; FROM SUCH TURN AWAY. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and  lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, EVER LEARNING, AND NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.”
                                   2 Timothy 2:1-7
Sound familiar? Pretty accurate description of the condition of the present world. They are the false teachers, false prophets who “preach” to ears that do not want to hear the truth, ears that want to be reassured that there is no eternal punishment for sin and that Jesus is gooey love and just begs to be worshiped with no prerequisite  for entering his presence. No, He is Holy, we worship him, he does not worship us! We were created for his pleasure, he doesn’t exist for our pleasure!
They refuse to mention Hell, it must be called Hades, because we can’t scare people, well, HELL, HELL, HELL, not saying it is not keeping people from going there every day!
I love people, I do not bash “sinners” we were all sinners, but if you do not tell people the truth, how are they being helped? And using the old routine to invite them into church and love on them and it will eventually rub off is a joke!
We are saved by conviction through the Holy Spirit revealing to us what miserable, wretched creatures we are. The “rub off” theory only gives people a false sense of security that they are eternally safe. That is not true, one of the greatest old sayings is this, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. Satan is using the very ones that were supposed to lead them to the Lord to instead lead them straight into hell.
As I’ve said before I know where I came from and I thank God for the people he put in my life that really did love me enough to tell me the truth!
So we can’t mention sin, we can’t mention hell but we can sure mention offerings and church events and preaching to X number of people. Gonna look great with your doctorate degree but don’t think it’ll win you a crown.
As Jesus said, they are the children of their father, the Devil.

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and EXHORT YOU THAT YOU SHOULD CONTEND (FIGHT) FOR THE FAITH THAT WAS ONCE DELIVERED UNTO THE SAINTS, FOR THERE ARE CERTAIN MEN CREPT IN UNAWARES (UNNOTICED) WHO WERE BEFORE OF OLD ORDAINED TO THIS CONDEMNATION,UNGODLY MEN, TURNING THE GRACE OF OUR GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS (MORALLY UNRESTRAINED) AND DENYING THE ONLY LORD GOD, AND 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, but left their own 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, AND GOING AFTER STRANGE FLESH, ARE SET FORTH FOR AN EXAMPLE, SUFFERING THE VENGEANCE OF ETERNAL FIRE. Likewise these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

But they speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally as brute beasts, IN THOSE THINGS THEY CORRUPT THEMSELVES.
Raging waves of the sea, FOAMING OUT OF THEIR OWN SHAME; WANDERING STARS ( When Lucifer was cast out of heaven he took one-third of the angels with him, written as a third of the stars) TO WHOM IS RESERVED THE BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS FOREVER.” Jude 3-8,10,13

Now to get a Sister a little back up! It would be one thing to dispute me, but Apostle Paul is a different matter:

“Wherefore I take to you record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. TAKE HEED therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. FOR I KNOW AFTER MY DEPARTING SHALL GRIEVOUS (SAVAGE) WOLVES ENTER IN AMONG YOU, NOT SPARING THE FLOCK. ALSO OF YOUR OWN SELVES SHALL MEN ARISE, SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS, TO DRAW AWAY DISCIPLES AFTER THEM. THEREFORE WATCH, AND REMEMBER, THAT BY THE SPACE OF THREE YEARS I CEASED NOT TO WARN EVERY ONE NIGHT AND DAY WITH TEARS.” Acts 20:26-31

Lord’s will, next time we’ll get into a little judgment that the Lord is going to bring down on all these. I guarantee you, it will not be a fruity  flavored dish either, it’ll be more like an extra, extra rare steak, juicy, meaty and really, really bloody.
