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.

Hell held hostage

“Wherefore he saith, WHEN HE ASCENDED UP ON HIGH, HE LEAD CAPTIVITY CAPTIVE, AND GAVE GIFTS UNTO MEN. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far ABOVE the heavens, that he might fill (fulfill) ALL things).” Ephesians 4:8,9

We know the story, when all the forces of hell thought they had managed to kill the Prince of Peace and even with the Romans standing guard there was NOTHING, NOTHING in this universe, no power strong enough that the grave could harness to hold the King of Glory and we know on the third day, HE AROSE..

I AM HE that liveth, and WAS DEAD; and behold, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE. A-men; and HAVE THE KEYS TO HELL AND DEATH.” Revelation 1:18

Jesus’ suffering and death allowed us to be forgiven of our sins and allowed us to have a personal relationship with Him, whereas the priests of Israel had to offer sacrifice and only the high priest was allowed in the Holy of Holies and even he would DIE if his heart was not right in the sight of the Lord.

But at the moment death came to Jesus, the temple veil was torn into, prophetically tearing down the partition between Christ and His followers. This allowed for the resurrected Christ to spiritually indwell believers, making our bodies the very temples of God, which is why we are warned by scripture diligently against defiling these temples.

He ransomed us in life and IN DEATH from the enemy and from all the power and sorrow death and the grave held over us.

As even Satan tried to put dibs on the dead body of Moses, whom God Himself had buried, Jude verse 9: “Yet Micheal the archangel when contending (disputing) with the devil he disputed (discussed) about the body of Moses, durst (dared) not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

So obviously Satan thought he had some sort of right to the body and there ARE many occult practices tied into bones and such things, but that is not what this one is about, so I’m not getting into that. But it would be awesome to take lessons from Micheal and just calmly, cooling respond to those who the devil comes through to argue and aggravate us, and just be able to rest in the power of God KNOWING that it IS God that rebukes them.

Jesus having those keys to hell, now controlling the very door to it can now prevent us from going there and these best descriptive of hell is a few of the following verses, but to be assured, IT IS REAL, and IT IS ETERNAL, and there ARE NO SECOND CHANCES, once death has come.

I want to use a couple of the Lords teachings on it, Jesus taught OFTEN and VERY VOCALLY about Hell, and yet today so many preachers are scared to use the word, for fear of running off their flock.. are you really doing them any favors with that? Jesus taught hell TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM GOING THERE, think maybe we should also?

Gonna pick this up during His teaching on sin and that if ANYTHING causes us to sin, GET RID OF IT, so we can escape hell:

Mark 9:43-48:  And if thy hand offend thee (makes you sin), cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life (eternal resurrected life) maimed, than having two hands TO GO INTO HELL, INTO THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED;

Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED. 

And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt (lame) into life, than to have two feet TO BE CAST INTO HELL,INTO THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED:

Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT IS NOT QUENCHED.

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD with one eye, THAN HAVING TWO EYES TO BE CAST INTO HELL FIRE.

Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.”

Please notice that three times, verbatim He used Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.” Since it is verbatim scripture, it appears in all capital letters, the reference is to this passage: Isaiah 66:24:

” And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men (people) that have transgressed against me FOR their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”

And as He spoke again to the Jews, and of those who SHOULD have come to Him and refused, and those who tried to “enter in another way”, in proclaiming Christ with their mouths and yet rejecting His commands for their lives, and He told them of the sorrow of bitter tears and gritting of their teeth in agony for what will never be changed.:

Luke 13:24-29: ” STRIVE to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

When once the master of the house is RISEN UP, and hath shut the door, and ye begin to stand without (outside), and knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know not whence ye are (where you are from): THEN shall ye begin to say, we HAVE eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

But he shall say, I tell you, I KNOW NOT whence ye are (where you are from)depart from me, all ye workers of inquiry.

THERE SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETHwhen ye shall SEE Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, IN the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and SHALL SI DOWN IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.”  

Now for the eternal AWARENESS of the inescapable torment of hell:

Luke 16: 19-31: ” There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously (lived in luxury) every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

and it came to pass that the beggar DIED, and WAS CARRIED BY THE ANGELS into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also DIED, AND WAS BURIED;

And IN HELL HE LIFT UP HIS EYES, BEING IN TORMENTS, and SEETH ABRAHAM AFAR OFF, and LAZARUS IN HIS BOSOM. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, HAVE MERCY ON ME, and send Lazarus that HE MAY DIP THE TIP OF HIS FINGER IN WATER, AND COOL MY TONGUE; FOR I AM TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME.  

But Abraham said, SON, REMEMBER THAT THOU IN THY LIFETIME RECEIVEDST THY GOOD THINGS, AND LIKEWISE LAZARUS EVIL THINGS: But NOW HE IS COMFORTED, AND THOU ART TORMENTED.

And beside all this,BETWEEN US AND YOU THERE IS A GREAT GULF FIXED: SO THAT THEY WHICH WOULD PASS FROM HENCE (here) TO YOU CANNOT, NEITHER CAN THEY PASS TO US, THAT WOULD COME FROM THENCE (there).

Then said he,I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren;THAT HE MAY TESTIFY UNTO THEM, LEST THEY ALSO COME INTO THIS PLACE OF TORMENT.

Abraham saith unto him, THEY HAVE MOSES AND THE PROPHETS, LET THEM HEAR THEM. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: BUT IF ONE WENT BACK FROM THE DEAD, THEY WILL REPENT,

And he said unto him, IF THEY HEAR NOT MOSES AND THE PROPHETS, NEITHER WILL THEY BE PERSUADED, THOUGH ONE ROSE FROM THE DEAD.” 

That is so eerie and sad, STILL today, there are those who refuse to believe, EVEN though Lazarus WAS resurrected by Jesus, and the Jews planned to kill as they plotted to kill Jesus, and though CHRIST ROSE THE DEAD, THERE ARE THOSE, WHO LIKE THE RICH MAN, WILL ONLY BELIEVE, WHEN THEY AWAKE TOO LATE.

As Jesus tells us, He rose victoriously with the keys to hell and now for the description of death. The shadow of death often referred to as “gross” darkness, completely void of light and Job described as this:

Job 10: 21,22 ” Before I GO whence (where)  I shall NOT RETURN, even TO the LAND OF DARKNESS and THE SHADOW OF DEATH;

A LAND OF DARKNESS, AS DARKNESS ITSELFand of the SHADOW OF DEATH, WITHOUT ANY ORDER, and WHERE THE LIGHT IS AS DARKNESS.”

As Jesus came to earth as a human, the SON of God, but still human and by doing so, died as the sacrifice for ours sins and once He entered into death, he removed the sting, the pain out of it for us, we as believer are CARRIED, just as Lazarus was by the angels, but we are carried INTO THE PRESENCE of God.

And as He overthrew hell, dying as a human does, but being the Son of God, He then could take control and ALL the power it held over humans, because ONLY GOD HAS THE POWER TO DEFEAT the devil, and therefore sparing ALL that accept Him form that terrible place of torment the rich man found himself in.

I hope this helps anyone who has questions, and again please don’t buy the politically correct demonic lies of this world.. ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN AND ONLY ONE WAY TO ESCAPE THE TORMENTS OF HELL AND THAT IS THROUGH THE ACCEPTANCE OF JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND THE WASHING OF YOUR SOUL IN HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD.

Please join me next time, when, Lord will, we will look at the second coming of Christ to earth and the battle of Armageddon, the rapture of the saints, and finish up with the earthly reign of Christ and the final destruction of hell and death in the lake of fire. Till next time, I’ll leave you with this:

1 Corinthians 15: 42-57: ” So also is the resurrection of the dead. It IS sown in corruption (perishable state): it IS raised in incorruption (imperishable):

It IS sown in dishonour; it IS raised in glory; it IS sown in weakness; it IS RAISED IN POWER:

It IS sown a natural body; it IS RAISED A SPIRITUAL BODY.

There IS a natural body, and there IS a spiritual body.

As it is written, THE FIRST MAN ADAM WAS MADE  A LIVING SOUL; THE LAST MAN ADAM WAS MADE A QUICKENING SPIRIT.

Howbeit, that was NOT first which is spiritual, BUT that which s natural: AND AFTERWARD THAT WHICH IS SPIRITUAL.

The first man IS of the earth, earthy: such as they also that are earthy: and as in the heavenly, such as they also that are heavenly. And as we HAVE borne the image of the earthy, WE SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY.

Now This I say, brethren, FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD; NEITHER DID CORRUPTION INHERIT INCORRUPTION.

Behold, I shew (show) you a mystery; We shall not all sleep (die) but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.

In a moment, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP: FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, AND THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY. SO when THIS corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and THIS mortal shall have put on immortality,

THEN shall BE BROUGHT TO PASS THE SAYING THAT IS WRITTEN, DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY.

O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?

O GRAVE, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY?

The sting of death IS sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But THANKS BE TO GOD WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.”

Love and Peace! Φλογιζω Σαλπιζω NBJ 2017

Just to be crystal clear…….

“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them.  STRIVE to enter in at the straight (NARROW) gate: for MANY, I say unto you, WILL SEEK to enter in, and shall NOT be able.

When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut the door, and ye began to stand without (outside), and knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know NOT  whence ye are (where you are from): THEN shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

But he shall say, I tell you, I know not whence ye are (where you are from) DEPART FROM ME, ALL YE WORKERS OF INIQUITY. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first that shall be last.” 

                                                                     LUKE 13:23-30

So to see what is going on there, we often gaze into a pool and are mesmerized by the reflection we see, only the problem is this, we often see OUR reflection, OUR HUMAN FACE, and not see clearly through the water to see a reflection that God wants, a reflection of Him. The reflection staring back should be that of Jesus Christ.

These are those who SAY that they have done the will of God, SAY they have basked in His presence but the problem comes when met face to face, HE DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THEM AS HIS! We have so many FALSE teachings today that “there are many ways to heaven”.

JESUS SAID, JOHN 14:6:…. I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.”

Considering these people are talking to the Lord as though they BELONG there, something must have happened somewhere along the way.  Heaven is real, Hell is real, there are people IN HELL at this very moment and hell is not fun and games, hell is not a partying spot where men and women “enjoy” all the sin and perversion there hearts desire. { For a heads up on this topic, please read my post, “Demons, the Devil, and the Deceived, part 3 Making reservations for hell”, may enlighten you to the Biblical truth answers to the lies of this world} and NO ONE wants to hear this, BUT SIN IS REAL…. YES! SIN! IT IS REAL!

People STILL commit sin, God STILL hates sin and there are those who desire to have your soul for Satan that wants you to believe that what you think that you see so clearly is perfectly okay with God. AH but it is not, what you are seeing in that STILL reflection is flesh and NO flesh, which simply means our human state and DESIRES of that WILL NOT enter into heaven or the presence of God. Without REPENTANCE of SIN (OH MY, DID I REALLY SAY IT AGAIN?!) and ACCEPTANCE OF JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR, YOU ARE NOT SAVED.

And works upon works, good deeds, calling on Him and even those who dare say they preach the Gospel (twisted version 101, the devil quoted it too) are those who will hear “DEPART! I DO NOT KNOW YOU” and no one wants that!! When Jesus taught on these things, He never once gave a however clause.

Our problem is that we ADD the however clause to make the Gospel FIT US, the Bible states that we are “carnal BEFORE we are spiritual” You WILL not know or understand the things of God UNTIL you are saved and He reveals them to you, whether you think you know it now or not, but we really need to decide whether or not believing and putting trust in NON BIBLICAL TEACHINGS, or another humans INTERPRETATION of those scriptures, is really worth betting our eternal soul on them.

In these next passages Jesus is referring to sin, He does not mean to literally poke out your eye, He means don’t be looking at things, pleasing your flesh that we lead you into sin. He does not mean cut off your hand, it means “keep your hand out of the cookie jar” so to speak, If something will lead you astray STAY AWAY FROM IT then He describes hell to us.

MARK 9:43-48: “And if thy right hand offend thee (cause you to sin),cut if off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands TO GO INTO HELL, INTO THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED: where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT (soul never dies), AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED,

And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be CAST INTO HELL, INTO THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED;  Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out; it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be CAST INTO HELL FIRE: Where THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.”

Doesn’t sound much like  party to me, does it to you?  Let’s dig on, shall we?

MATTHEW 13:38-42,49,50: “The field IS the WORLD; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares (weeds) are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them IS the devil; the harvest IS the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. And therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so SHALL IT BE IN THE END OF THIS WORLD.

The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom ALL things THAT OFFEND, and them which do INIQUITY; And shall CAST THEM INTO A FURNACE OF FIRE: THERE SHALL BE WAILING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.

 (49,50) So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth and sever away the wicked from among the just. And shall CAST THEM INTO THE FURNACE OF FIRE: THERE SHALL BE WAILING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.”

  Again, crying and screaming in pain and horror, gnashing of teeth for dread and suffering of that pain, doesn’t sound like too much drinking, drugging, and sex going on there, and Satan WILL BE there tormented with everyone who believed his lies.

Now on to SIN! Gotta do it again, YES, SIN! We never get a chance to use the word much without being called intolerant, homophobic bigots, so I’ll say it again, SIN!!!!

ROMANS 3:23:” FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.”

1 JOHN 1:5-10 ” This then is the MESSAGE WHICH WE HAVE HEARD OF HIM, and DECLARE unto you, that God is light, and in him is NO darkness AT ALL.  If we SAY that we have fellowship, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth;

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST,HIS SON CLEANSES US FROM ALL SIN.

IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE NO SIN, WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US.

IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

 IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE NOT SINNED, WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US.”

 Pretty self-explanatory there, wouldn’t you say? Now for what God considers  sin ( Oh, there is THAT word again, darn it!) Listen what Paul starts out with, he is talking to the candy coats of his day in that first verse.

1 CORINTHIANS 6-11: ” NAY, ye do wrong, and defraud and that your brethren (teach them wrong also).  KNOW YE NOT (do you not know)  that the unrighteous SHALL NOT inherit the kingdom of God? BE NOT DECEIVED, NEITHER fornicators,(sexually promiscuous), nor idolaters,(putting things before God) nor adulterers (cheat on your spouse much?), nor effeminate (homosexuals) nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers (fighting and being belligerent), nor extortioners (blackmail, manipulation), shall inherit the kingdom of God,

And SUCH WERE some of you, BUT YE ARE WASHED, but YE WERE SANCTIFIED, but  YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS,AND BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.”

 All sin, sin is sin, We have all sinned, I’ve sinned, you’ve sinned , as the scripture states WE HAVE ALL SINNED but one thing is certain “no sin shall enter therein.” Now  for a little back up:

REVELATION 21:6-8: ” And he unto meIt IS done. I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, I will give unto him that is athirst of the water of life FREELY.

He that OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS; I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

BUT the fearful (cowardly), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murders, and whoremongers (sexually immoral), sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL LIARS, SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE: WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.”

Now, you wouldn’t want to take just anyone’s word for that, now would you? So WHO was that speaking?

REVELATION 1:8:  I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE ENDING, SAITH THE LORD, WHICH IS, AND WHICH WAS, AND WHICH IS TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY.”  That would be Jesus Christ!

We have established, hell, we have established what sin is, God wants to see EVERYONE saved, but HE IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE HIS WORD FOR US, we must live for him and repent and be washed in his blood:

HEBREWS 9:22 ” And almost all things are by law purged (cleansed) with blood; and without shedding of blood is NO REMISSION

COLOSSIANS 1:20,21:” And having made peace THROUGH THE BLOOD OF HIS CROSS, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

And you THAT WERE sometimes alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.” God does not want any of us lost, He wants no one to go to hell, but His word is clear, if you want Him and salvation, you must repent, it IS NOT optional, You must be washed by the blood, and you must accept and HIS WORD.  He will wash you, cleanse you, make you new and NEVER bring your past up again.

ISAIAH 1:18: “COME, LET US REASON TOGETHER, SAITH THE LORD: THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE WHITE AS SNOW, THOUGH THEY BE RED LIKE CRIMSON, THEY SHALL BE AS WOOL.”
