“Today and the tomorrow that may never be”

“But exhort one another daily, while IT IS called TO day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.  While it is said, TODAY IF YE WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS, AS IN THE PROVACATION (rebellion).” Hebrews 3:13,14 

Wouldn’t we all love to have a blank calendar or a calendar from the past that we could go back and “x” off certain days, days of hurt, sorrow, or days that we made tragic mistakes and maybe not make those mistakes again?

And wouldn’t we all love to have God’s calendar? You know that is why He tells us some much in His word, TODAY, TODAY, TODAY and even saying, in Matthew 6:34: Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself, sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

What He is warning us against here, is our human habit of worrying about tomorrow, while not realizing that we may not even be able to handle today and EACH day comes with its own set of either joys, or heartaches, victories, or trails, but either way LET TOMORROW WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW and just be concerned with YOUR TODAY.

The REAL problem with the TOMORROW mentality is when people apply it to their spiritual health and salvation. Got to give my beautiful big Sis credit on this, I had called her for prayer about something I was going through and we got off on the subject of so many people that the enemy sells the same old line to, that THEY SHOULD WAIT UNTIL THEY FEEL LED TO GO TO GOD.

What kind of thinking is that? You know that is NOT from God, God said COME unto me and even in the end at Revelation AGAIN, the SPIRIT and the BRIDE TOGETHER are URGING ALL WHO WILL to COME!

I hope to give more than enough scriptural proof with this post that there should no longer be any doubt as to whether or not the Lord has sent out those invitations to ALL who will, ALL who will come to Him, His household, and His Kingdom.

So I want to go back to our starting verse to establish just what goes on here, with that deceived thinking, notice that is says “lest ANY of you be HARDENED THROUGH the DECEITFULNESS of sin” and what that means is that you are to call on the Lord TODAY, because sin will hardened your heart and LIE to you and have you “put off” salvation, “put off” the call of God, as sin tells you must wait on a formal invitation.

An invitation that has ALREADY been sent in the form of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ on earth, an invitation that has already been sealed by the blood of His Son bearing the approval of His signet, and invitation that was DELIVERED when His dead body rose victorious.

And the words “WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD, SHALL BE SAVED” recorded in His word for the ENTIRE world to receive.

So it is not that they have no invitation, they are simply REFUSING to open it!

We always use the thief on the cross to prove this out, the man WAS slowly dying, he had NO time, and he KNEW he had NO tomorrow and he KNEW that it was then, there, TODAY or never.

And as we all know Jesus response, pure gold and blessed with assurance so that not even one doubt could have entered the mans mind, Verily I say unto thee, to day thou shalt be with me in paradise

No going down to the altar, no church introduction, no baptism, no time to do “ministries”, not even time to tell any person that he was sorry for any wrong he had done them.

But time, that day, that was his last TODAY on this earth, and his first TODAY in glory with Jesus Christ!

We are all given ONE life, and we have ONE day, yesterday is gone, gone forever and ever and will never, ever come again, and tomorrow is NOT guaranteed,

James 4:13-14: ” Go to now (come, listen) ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain (make money) WHEREAS (because) YE KNOW NOT WHAT SHALL BE ON THE MORROW (you do not know what tomorrow holds); for WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? IT IS EVEN A VAPOUR, THAT APPEARETH FOR A LITTLE TIME, AND THEN VANISHETH AWAY. FOR THAT (for this reason) YE OUGHT TO SAY, IF THE LORD WILL, WE SHALL LIVE, AND DO THIS, OR THAT.”

So you have TODAY, TODAY is YOUR responsibility and TODAY we have the responsibility to DAILY exhort those who may not have to tomorrow, that they should consider TO DAY, so for any who “lost” the invitation, that they failed to open, consider this:

Isaiah 55:6-7: ” Seek ye the Lord WHILE he may be found, CALL ye upon him WHILE he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and LET HIM RETURN unto the Lord, and HE WILL HAVE MERCY UPON HIM; AND TO OUR GOD, FOR HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON.”

Simply put, SEEK God, give up your ways that are leading to destruction, return to God and He will take care of the rest!  2 Corinthians 6:2: “( For he saith, I HAVE HEARD THEE IN A TIME ACCEPTED AND IN THE DAY OF SALVATION HAVE I SUCCOURED (helped) THEE:  behold (pay very close attention) NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME; BEHOLD, NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.) 

So as you see, above there is a completely blank calendar, you did not know your beginning, you certainly do not know your ending, but YOU do know your TODAY, and Lamentations 3:22,23 : “ IT IS of the LORD’S MERCIES THAT WE ARE NOT CONSUMED, BECAUSE HIS COMPASSIONS FAIL NOT it is only because of  his mercy that we have not been destroyed). They (His mercy) ARE NEW EVERY MORNING, great is thy faithfulness.”

Chose, chose today and let that calendar represent a new life, a new hope, and a new future eternal, count every day, and count every day as the precious opportunity a gift that it is.  Help us understand the full POWER of TODAY.

Psalm 90:12: “So teach us to NUMBER our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”

Hope you have a blessed today, tomorrow, and always! Love & Peace

” Merchandising with Markdown Mike”

So, you’re going down the road, your 1979 clunker clanging and banging, sputtering and spattering all the while and you look over to your left and see a grand sight, red, white, and blue fringed banners waving majestically, beckoning you with the skill and seduction of sea siren calling out to helpless sailors to lure them to their death on the jagged rocks.

 Your eyes are drawn far up above the shining, mesmerizing  salute to Americana, a sign towers with huge gold glittered letters surrounded by what would appear to be hundreds of twinkling lights, “MARKDOWN MIKE STAR CARZ STADIUM”.

So you answer to the call of the shiny sirens as they lure you to pull on over, take a look… never hurts to look.

Soon you are approached by one sharp-looking fellow, he is sleek, he is sharper than any GQ model . The dark gray suit and aqua blue shirt bringing out the deepest twinkle in his blue eyes, from behind his exquisitely trimmed mustache and beard, he flashes you a twenty thousand dollar smile, as he takes your hand shaking it with his as the other pats you on the back. Instantly you feel so connected, he is like a long-lost brother, a trustworthy, honest friend.

” Hi, I’m Mike” he excitedly announces as he continues shaking your hand, “What can I help you with today?” And it is on, he has you talking, you will soon be flooded with questions like “Where ya from?” “How’s your family”, “Who’s your Mama?” till he has you gushing out your life story like a drain that has just be unclogged after twenty years of gunk has built up. He finally gets you worked up to the point of tears recalling the death of your pet turtle when you were in first grade.

You see Mike is good, he is really good.

When the subject of buying a car FINALLY comes up, ol’ Mike flashes that smile and says, “You know I like you, even though we just met, I can tell that you are an awesome person, so I tell ya what I’ll do.” He finishes as he leads you out onto the lot, waving his hand to point you in the direction of the sweetest ride you have ever seen, a graphite gray Lamborghini, it is so beautiful, its headlights even seem to wink at you as if to say “Buy me” your heart start to pound, you feel flush, and you really want this car, you want it even more that you wanted a date with the beautiful blond from High School who wouldn’t give you the time of day.

You regain composure knowing that this is gonna be way outta your budget and as you start to say “But I don’t think I can affor….  Mike cuts you off,  “Oh, the price?”

 ” Yeah, about that, you’ve surely heard of the rapper POBO haven’t ya?”  you nod in submissive agreement. “Well, you see, me and ol’ POBO go way back, used to do a lot clubbing and chick trippin’ together in the nineties, way before he became famous, and I don’t know what he was thinking with this… But he bought this for his grandmother.” Your eyes widen in disbelief, Mike half rolls his eyes, “I know… Right?” he shrugs “So it was practically given to me, tell ya what I’ll do, what say, twenty five-thousand and call her done?”  You can not believe your luck! Mike is awesome! You just got your dream car for penny’s on the dollar of its true value. You quickly agree and as you willfully follow Mike to his office to take care of the paperwork, Mike says “Oh, yeah by the way, old POBO had a state of the art GPS system installed in that car, all you do if you break down or need help, just press the button and help will be there in a flash.

So your off, days go by, your digging your ride, digging all the extra attention and inquisitive stares from your neighbors, you laugh to yourself because you know they are trying to figure out how you swung this car, and it is all thanks to your friend “Markdown Mike”.

Few days later, you get a call you got to drive back home to Mississippi for a family emergency, you are even more thankful now that you have your new dependable ride, you even genuinely hope great things happen for Mike because he was so good to you.

You are on your way but somehow, despite your best efforts you have ended up on the wrong road and find yourself out in the middle of nowhere, isolated, alone, you have no idea where you are, there is not a road sign, house, or even a street light as far as you can see. Then you remember the button Mike told you about and breathe a sigh of relief because now you can get help and get going because this place is starting to get a little too creepy.

You frantically press the button and a light flashes for a moment, and as your heartbeat start to calm a little in relief, an automated female voice replies “CUSTOMER AUTHENTICATION INVALID, ACCESS DENIED” about that time you see truck lights behind you, you watch as four men get out carrying what appears to be rope and metal pipes, as you try unsuccessfully to start the car, you know these guys are not your friends and the patting of the pipes in their hands just let you know that they have every intention in the world of beating your brains out and taking your car.

Painfully, you then realize a little something, Mike was never your friend, Mike had something for sale, he didn’t care if it was safe, he never cared if you were stranded in the middle of nowhere all alone, and Mike messed you up and now you are gonna die.

That IS what is happening in our world RIGHT NOW! Millions, I would go as far as to say closer to billions, counting pagan religions are on a road and that road leads to destruction. The candy coated church world now SELL the “Gospel”.

They look the part, they act the part and just like “Markdown Mike” they are good at what they do. It is nothing new.

William Branham who once was a respected minister fell to the seduction of his own thoughts and a very chilling note to his story is this, JIM JONES opened for him. We all know about Jim Jones, led many people to their death.  David Koresh and many more over the years, all gave heed to seducing spirits and in that seduction, it bled off on those they came in contact with.

Their followers seduced also by their charm put the trust of their souls in the hands of these men rather than the hands of God. The simple truth, IT CAN HAPPEN and it can happen easier than we would ever want to believe. The candy coat doctrine has reached damning proportions and like our friend above the reality is that the souls who have bought this cheap counterfeit version of the truth will find out in the end they also fell to this seduction:

“Now the SPIRIT speaketh expressly, THAT IN THE LATTER TIMES, SOME SHALL DEPART FROM THE FAITH, GIVING HEED TO SEDUCING (DECEIVING) SPIRITS, AND DOCTRINES OF DEVILS; SPEAKING LIES IN HYPOCRISY ; HAVING THEIR CONSCIENCE SEARED WITH  HOT IRON.” 1 TIMOTHY 4:1,2

No one can say these guys weren’t right WHEN they started. That maybe they just veered away from the true Gospel, that is only for them and God to know. The reason I am so big on never going later than a NKJV Bible is this, if you have never studied the original then you have no way of knowing whether or not the meaning of that content has been changed.

God will enlighten his children as they study His word and I am living proof of that. Before I got saved, what I call, “when I was trying to get saved”, I could understand Jesus’ teachings but not the rest of it. Someone told me to read in a certain book and I tried, I couldn’t do it, it was like some sort of foreign language, but when God saved me, it CAME ALIVE and I could understand it like reading modern writing.

God is NOT A RESPECTER of persons and He will do that for anyone who seeks to know His truth. The Bible is full of mysteries and very specifically styled so that those who would try to pick it apart “can have eyes but not see” and no one has been burned at the stake to give us any of these  modern translations. It is just an easier way for the candy coats to work the crowd.

The Gospel will never be easy. It will certainly not ever be cheap. You want to follow Christ, you pick up YOUR cross and YOU carry it. Why would teachings that has survived the Roman Empire, Persecutions, the tortures and murders of it’s followers be all of a sudden in this generation, so easy and for sale so cheaply? Because it is not the real Gospel.

God will NEVER change His word. He WILL NEVER lower His standard of how we are to live. HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE FOREVER and it is all written and settled in heaven. So please, please don’t fall for their shiny tricks and schemes, seek the TRUE gospel and always read along with what they are teaching.

Never mistake the candy coats excitement for the true POWER of God, His power is fierce, it is strong and it is loud and it can not be copied and it will open blinded eyes, cause the deaf to hear, and raise the dead. The Apostles PRAYED that the signs and wonders would follow as PROOF of their ministry and testify to the existence, glory, and supremacy of the one true God. We are going to have to decide do we want what God has or do we want to fit in with this world?

Here are the candy coats: 2 Corinthians 11:13-15: “For SUCH ARE FALSE apostles, DECEITFUL workers, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO APOSTLES OF CHRIST. And no marvel (no shock) FOR SATAN HIMSELF IS TRANSFORMED (TRANSFORMS HIMSELF) INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. THEREFORE it is no great thing ( no trouble) IF HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED AS MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; WHOSE END SHALL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.” 

That should be enough to wake anyone up and make us all realize what we are dealing with!

Now here is the real deal and the difference you will know:   2 Corinthians 12:11,12: HOW shall WE ESCAPE, IF WE NEGLECT SO GREAT SALVATION; which AT FIRST BEGAN TO BE SPOKEN BY THE LORD, AND WAS CONFIRMED UNTO US BY THEM THAT HEARD HIM TRULY THE SIGNS OF AN APOSTLE WERE WROUGHT AMONG YOU IN ALL PATIENCE (PERSEVERANCE), IN SIGNS, AND WONDERS, AND MIGHTY DEEDS.”

And Hebrews 2:4 “GOD ALSO BEARING THEM WITNESS, BOTH WITH SIGNS AND WONDERS, AND WITH DIVERS (VARIOUS) MIRACLES, AND GIFTS OF THE HOLY GHOST, ACCORDING TO HIS OWN WILL?

That is the difference we will not escape the things coming upon this world without Jesus Christ, We will not fight the candy coats doctrine WITHOUT the HOLY GHOST and His signs and wonders. It is time to get serious, time is running out. 

A good shepherd WILL LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS SHEEP. Pastors, where’s your flock? What are they really doing? Who are they listening to when they can no longer hear you?

Paul warned us of the wolves and he actually said that he did so WITH TEARS, ravening wolves came in Paul’s day, how many do you think are out there now? You better be watching your flock, the wolves will take them and you will have to give account to THE SHEPHERD for every single one of those they have been lost.

And good shepherds, there are some left, mighty few but a few, I know we don’t take others people sheep but those who are being misguided do not have a REAL shepherd to care for them and your just gonna to have to try to get to them to, they need fed and fed with the truth, not lies and fluff that is going to send them to hell. How can they know where they go without a true shepherd?

Laying down your life means letting anything go that is taking time away from shepherding your flock.

Finally if you are seeking today and are confused by the flood of teachings, thoughts, and doctrine, here’s some help, there IS ONLY ONE TRUE DOCTRINE, and here is words from the LEADING AUTHORITY, THE EXPERT TO END ALL EXPERTS:

“HO, every one that thirsteth, COME YE TO THE WATERS, and HE THAT HATH NO MONEY; COME YE, BUY, AND EAT; YEA COME, BUY WINE AND MILK WITHOUT PRICE.

Wherefore (why) DO YE SPEND MONEY FOR THAT WHICH IS NOT BREAD?  AND LABOUR FOR THAT WHICH SATISFIETH NOT?

HEARKEN (LISTEN) DILIGENTLY UNTO ME AND EAT YE THAT WHICH IS GOOD, AND LET YOUR SOUL DELIGHT ITSELF IN FATNESS ( ABUNDANCE).

INCLINE YOUR EAR, AND COME UNTO ME: HEAR AND YOUR SOUL SHALL LIVE; AND I WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH YOU, EVEN THE SURE MERCIES OF DAVID.”   Isaiah 55:1-3 

That was GOD speaking. His redemption is free, his gifts are free, all the food the candy coats try to sell is not real bread, so why you wanna pay ’em?

They may sound good but what they are selling you is too good to be true, it will not save you from the destruction of earth and it will sure not save you from hell, better test drive and read the owner’s manual before you buy it because this is one ride where generic is not gonna get you where you need to go!  *** Any resemblance of the character in this post to certain televangelists IS really NOT that much of a coincidence!***

“SIN”TRIFUGAL FORCE / PART 3 / BRAIN DAMAGED

The final stop for the rotating body that flees its center in the spirit world. A damage unlike any that could ever be caused by disease or injury. So pervasive that it moves from the heart where it was conceived, into the body to be brought to fruition and once it has been acted upon it invades the spirit, soul and even the mind and intellect of the host, all  induced by a head long spin into a state of sin so possessing that there is very little hope of recovery from it.
A public health campaign many years ago focusing on preventing the spread of AIDS had a line that went something like this, that when a person had relations with someone , they were in fact exposed to everyone that person had been with for the past ten years.
I want to enlighten you to something that the Lord enlightened me to several years ago. My husband had been telling how he and several more people could not believe the change that had happened in this lady, she had became involved with a new guy, completely changed her appearance and her behavior, just things that were so far out of her character that they were just shocked, as we discussed having seen this happen to other people, it hit me like a ton of bricks, UNHOLY SANCTIFICATION.
Not only does it pollute bodies, it actually pollutes souls, as the deal with AIDS, but instead of taking on the virus, it is taking on spiritual pollutants from every person they have been with.
Sound far out? Think about this, violent crimes, people getting robbed, beaten or kidnapped are all terribly traumatic, but nothing like the damage caused by rape, it was once described simply as “unfinished murder” because it damages a person’s very soul, also the reason it often goes unreported.
Satanic and most pagan religions have very specific sexual practices.
When God laid down the laws for the priests, they could not marry harlots, profane women or divorced women because the priests were Holy unto God and concerning High Priests, it was virgins only. Leviticus 21:13-15 states this about it.
“And he shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or a harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin out of his own people to wife. Neither shall he profane his seed among his people.”
In greater detail, still concerning priests, Ezekiel 22:44:
“Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is put away (divorced): but they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.” Only virgins and widows of other priests.
The ONLY time that one person can sanctify another person is through the consummation of what was intended to be a HOLY UNION between two people as HOLY matrimony, when two actually become one, as God said in his word.
1 Corinthians 7:13,14 : gives us the reason: “And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the UNBELIEVING HUSBAND IS SANCTIFIED BY THE WIFE AND THE UNBELIEVING WIFE IS SANCTIFIED BY THE HUSBAND: else your children were unclean;  BUT NOW THEY ARE HOLY.”
There is an old saying, that the first cut is the deepest and the Bible’s reference to the hardness of a harlot’s forehead means this, once we become so desensitized to behaviors that we once never dreamed of becoming involved with, it becomes easier and easier to give over to that. What we once thought was shameful has now become not only accepted but celebrated. This also applies to guys, he’s not just talking to women here.
Satan knew all this from the beginning, that is why it’s his favorite weapon and snare, he has hit full force with those who profess Christ, but are of Satan, they declare his twisted version of the truth and through their lies convincing gullible minds they lead others straight into hell.
“But if our Gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: IN
WHOM THE GOD OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine into them.” 2 Corinthians 4:3,4
Revisit Ezekiel 23, concerning pornography, and lewd practices, again this is written as countries, it means the people of those countries.
(17) “And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they DEFILED her with THEIR whoredom, and she was POLLUTED with them and HER MIND was alienated from them.”
Satan has waged a massive mind game with those in this world and regardless of the promises of false teachers and the last day mockers and scoffers, sin will be judged.
Here is the end of the matter: Romans 1:24-28
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THEIR OWN HEARTS, to dishonor their bodies between themselves: who CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause (reason) GOD GAVE THEM UP unto vile affections: for even the women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

And likewise also the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in THEIR LUST ONE TOWARD ANOTHER; MEN WITH MEN working that which is unseemly (shameful), and receiving in themselves the recompense (penalty) of their error which was meet (due), and even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATED MIND, to do those things which are not convenient.”
Irreversibly brain-damaged, minds blinded by Satan, never stopping to take stock, mocking and overriding the word of God.
“Speaking lies in hypocrisy: HAVING THEIR CONSCIENCE SEARED WITH A HOT IRON.”  1 Timothy 4:2
Feeding the flesh until it consumes the brain leading to complete brain death.

A Holy God growing very tired of your refusal to listen, removing his hand  from your life, and turning you over to that sin you so love.
Ephesians 4:17-19: ” This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth WALK NOT as other gentiles walk, IN THE VANITY OF THEIR OWN MIND, HAVING THEIR UNDERSTANDING DARKENED, BEING ALIENATED FROM THE LIFE OF GOD, through the ignorance that is in them, BECAUSE OF THE BLINDNESS OF THEIR HEART: WHO IS PAST FEELING have GIVEN THEMSELVES OVER to lasciviousness, TO WORK ALL UNCLEANNESS WITH GREEDINESS.”

There you have it, from the heart to the body, to the total destruction of the soul. Never believe the lies and filth of this world, because those that keep insisting that is acceptable behavior to God, when he says with his word that it is not, well the day is fast approaching that they will also stand before him in judgment and answer for these deceptions and it is not going to be very pretty.
What God designed to be holy is now passed from person to person spreading a disease far worse than AIDS, an incurable disease of the soul, UNHOLY CONSECRATION.

“SIN”TRIFUGAL FORCE / PART 2/ NOT TO RAIN ON THE PARADE, BUT…

As we continue to deal with the “sin”trifugal force that has taken over our country, ruined marriages, destroyed families not to mention individual lives. I want to be crystal clear about a little something.
It is a near impossibility to argue against sexual sin without being accused of being  a prude, fogey or my favorite, HOMOPHOBIC.
I can assure everyone, I am none of the above. I did not grow up in church, I was saved from about as far as you can go in the “world” and make it back out. I harbor no ill will or prejudice against anyone based on their sexual preferences.
There is the point, it should not even have to be debated, I am still waiting for someone to tell me it’s okay to preach that people can steal or kill, yeah then the feathers would ruffle wouldn’t they?
If people want to live these lives that is their choice. But to drag Christ into it and twist his word and his love and the allowance it makes, well that’s another thing and that provokes the right to defend true Christianity.
Sex, once upon a time it would have been considered a disgrace to even discuss such things outside the marriage and thanks to the sex kittens of the fifties, the musical invasion and free love of the sixties, the anything goes attitude of the seventies, giving birth to movies like “Pretty Woman” and “American Gigolo” famous for romanticizing prostitution in the eighties.

Masters and Johnson, Dr. Ruth, Jerry Springer and a host of others building financial empires from the publicized smut and degradation of others, that would for a mere moment of perceived fame would sell their souls to the devil himself.
The nineties bearing the harvest of those twisted seeds, springing up in the teen generation in the form of “friends with benefits’ and being advised by Sex Ed teachers to try everything and anything until they discover their sexual identity.

Entire television shows dedicated to paternity testing to determine after countless tests who really fathered the babies of seemingly bewildered mothers.
Whatever happened to the good ol’ warnings about AIDS and STD’s that once graced the late night television airwaves? They have now been replaced by infomercials for the sex industry and condom ad’s, be safe you never know what you might catch?!!
As everyone stood blindly by, Satan infiltrated our culture until it is spoon fed this filth day and night, never taking a pause.
We are in a completely demoralized state in this country, where nothing, nothing is sacred. If we do not stand up now when it has spiraled so far down, please tell me what it will be for the next generation?
To God, SIN IS SIN. Point blank. There is no difference between having an affair with a married person than having a homosexual relationship and no difference between either of those and premarital relations. We may see it differently but He is just, this is sin and if not repented of, it will absolutely get you a one way ticket to hell.
Jesus even upped the Ante with this statement from Matthew 5:27-29:

“Ye have heard it said by them of old time, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY: but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her HATH COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH HER ALREADY IN HIS HEART. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, AND NOT THE WHOLE BODY BE CAST INTO HELL.”
That also applies to the ladies, male or female, it is what it is and he says what he means and means what he says.
SIN TAKES RESIDENCE IN THE HEART and he searches the heart, if we know something is a temptation for us, it is our responsibility to stay away from that, to cast it away, the strength of that word meaning to throw it as far away from you as possible. Don’t hang after it or watch it dance on Friday nights!
You, yourself must fight, but if you pray he will help you do it. God knows we are tempted in this world, just as Lot vexed (troubled) his own soul by choosing to live in Sodom. Just being exposed to THEIR SIN, AFFECTED HIS SOUL, we must stay on guard.
There is NO SHAME in going to him in prayer, he will never embarrass you and he will help you but you have to be honest with him and then stay away from it.
So, maybe you have a friend or know someone who really, really believes that they are in love with a person of the same sex, I am so sorry, but it can’t be done.
It is the same argument heterosexuals use to justify divorcing a spouse they’ve been married to for thirty years and shacking up with someone else.
“The heart is DECEITFUL above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
We are taught to follow our hearts, it is often said “The heart wants what the heart wants” it would be better stated like this “The flesh wants what the flesh wants”  and it has nothing to do with love.
That is why God tells us his plan is one male, one female, joined AS ONE, as for the often questioned multiple wives of the Old Testament, Well like everything else, this was man’s doing, one guy named Lamech started this,(Genesis 4:19) all it takes is one bad apple, after he did it, everyone wanted multiple wives and yet women could only have one husband!
This was NEVER GOD’S IDEAL!
Sometimes we have feelings that are mistaken for love , when actually it is a displaced need for acceptance and trying to fill a void in our souls, just as with promiscuity, a need to feel like we belong and often our identities are tied to our sexuality, that being said, if a parade is needed to prove self worth than how great is the feeling of worthlessness inside?
God and God alone fills those voids. Matthew 22:29,30:
The Sadducees tried to hassle Jesus about whose wife a woman would be in the afterlife, had she been married to and widowed of seven brothers, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, NOR the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God.”
No males, no females and certainly no flesh. No matter who says this is not sin, please don’t listen to them, anyone who says they have no sin is a liar and this is the Bibles final word on the subject.
“I wrote unto you in an epistle to NOT keep company with fornicators (sexually immoral people).
“Yet not altogether (not just them) with the fornicators of THIS WORLD, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
But now I have written unto you NOT TO KEEP COMPANY, if any man THAT IS CALLED A BROTHER BE A FORNICATOR, OR COVETOUS, OR AN IDOLATER, OR A RAILER, OR A DRUNKARD, OR AN EXTORTIONER, WITH SUCH A ONE NO NOT TO EAT.”                                1 Corinthians 5:9-11
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God? BE NOT DECEIVED: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate ( Homosexuals) nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners,
 shall inherit the kingdom of God.”     1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Sin is sin, this is why he doubled assured this list and put it all on here, one sin is no different from the other.
No big sin, no little sin but no sin will get into heaven.
NOW THE GOOD, GOOD NEWS!
“And such we some of you: BUT ye are washed, BUT ye are sanctified, BUT ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the spirit of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:11
Let the world go and live for the truth, share the true Gospel, we were all sinners and we know the saving grace of God.
To let others be deceived into believing they are saved without repentance and the covering of the blood is the most cruel, cruel thing we could ever do.
If we love them we will tell them the truth, because it is not about being kind or a wonderful person, it is simply the truth of God and I have shown you in the word of God, that HE SAID these things are sin, and there is no way around that.
” AND IF THE RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY (BARELY) BE   SAVED, WHERE SHALL THE SINNER AND THE UNGODLY APPEAR?” 1 Peter 4:18

DEMONS, THE DEVIL, AND THE DECEIVED / PART3/ "MAKING RESERVATIONS FOR HELL"

The deceived, the souls who have bought into the lies of Satan, those who have chose to forsake a Holy God and follow a fallen angel, accepting his damnable belief that they will all be going to a sin ridden party in hell, to continue to wallow in all the filth they wallow in on this earth.
Yes, there is a growing number who really, really believe this. There are also those who choose to believe in heaven but not hell. Those whose choose to believe the lies spoon fed to them but those that title themselves “ministers” who not only do not know the Lord but are a disgrace and abomination in using his holy name, who convince them that yes, they can wallow in their sins,never repent but yet one day walk with the Lord. Oh my how special and convenient for them!
Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. He or His word do not change for anyone.
Again, the music, all genres having lyrics touting the fact that heaven is a bore and hell is where it’s at and they laugh and they laugh. Like the pagan rituals that mock death. So deceived that the correct party song for this bunch should be “Hi ho, Hi ho, it’s off to hell I go”!
“BECAUSE YE HAVE SAID, WE HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH DEATH, AND WITH HELL WE ARE IN AGREEMENT; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made lies or refuge, and under falsehood we have hid ourselves. Judgment I will lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and hail shall sweep away your refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. AND YOUR COVENANT WITH DEATH SHALL BE DISANNULLED, AND YOUR AGREEMENT WITH HELL SHALL NOT STAND when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. For the time it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: AND IT SHALL BE A VEXATION (TERROR) JUST TO READ THE REPORT.”
Isaiah 28:15, 17-19
That’s God’s thought on the subject! Their reservations for their perceived notion of hell will be suddenly cancelled and his wrath and holy anger will be poured out with such fury that, as we know, they will beg rocks to fall on them to hide them from his face, they who laughed at death, will now beg for it only to have it flee from them, so abominable that even that even death will say to them, I will not save you!
Soon to be cast into a literal lake of fire to burn forever, along side their now helpless master, to be fed with the sorrow that they were so quick to feed others on his behalf.
I think these are in the worst condition of all, because even those who have served devils and worshipped Satan have been wise enough to repent.
Acts 19:18-20 “And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds MANY OF THEM WHO ALSO WHICH USED CURIOUS ARTS (WITCHCRAFT) BROUGHT THEIR BOOKS TOGETHER, AND BURNED THEM BEFORE ALL MEN: AND THEY COUNTED THE PRICE OF THEM, AND FOUND IT TO BE FIFTY PIECES OF SILVER. SO MIGHTLY GREW THE WORD OF GOD AND PREVAILED.”
Those who do not believe are already condemned, but these people do believe, they simply do not care, they are so blind that they really do not care if they go to hell.
Who are they? “Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 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. Raging waves of the sea, foaming out of their own shame; wandering stars, TO WHOM IS RESERVED THE BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS FOREVER.” Jude 8:10,13
Now for the saddest scripture in the Bible, this is even after they know he is real, he is bringing wrath on earth, this is their response. Revelation 9:20,21
“And the rest of the men (humans) which were not killed by these plagues YET REPENTED NOT of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and stone and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk: NEITHER REPENTED THEY OF THEIR MURDERS, NOR OF THEIR SORCERIES, NOR OF THEIR FORNICATION, NOR OF THEIR THEFTS.”
Most of us know people like this and they can be very frustrating to deal with. I have people in my family who have been messed up with witchcraft and those who profess to be atheists, I understand.
My flesh often wants to say, “Well when seventy-five pound hail stones starts hitting the ground, you will hit your knees!” But God does not want that, he wants his word to be peaceful and easily absorbed.
Try not to get angry with them, keep praying that their eyes will be opened. Keep planting seed, God’s word will not come back void, he uses one to plant, another to water and he gives the increase.
Paul, who as Saul hated Christians had his eyes opened by the Lord and went on the be the greatest Apostle of the Lord and wrote most of the New Testament. all things are possible with God, so never give up on them!
Finally, Revelation 21:7,8 “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful (cowardly), and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and the murderers,
and whoremongers (sexually immoral) and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE: WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.”
“Hell is RESERVED for the devils and his angels” it is so sad that so many are making reservations to be there with them.
