“Mingled, Tinged, & Tainted”

” And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought the out of the land of Egypt,out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have NO others gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Thou shall NOT BOW DOWN thyself to them. nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of THEM THAT HATE ME; and SHEWING (showing) MERCY unto thousands of them that love me, and KEEP my commandments.” Exodus 20:1-6

Well, I guess you can reason by the title where this is going.. the place no one seems to want to go lately. Why does spiritual “purity” now seem to always equate to social snobbery?

Former generations and many other “religious” groups have NEVER been questioned when they taught that you can not allow your beliefs to be “mingled” with other beliefs, but somehow we have swallowed this as Christians that we should be more “open” in the influences we allow on our lives, in our churches, and in the name of our God.

And in doing so, in the name of “being tolerant”, accepting, and open we HAVE bowed ourselves down to them. And we question why we do not see the mighty moves of God such as recorded in the Bible, when we all know that our present world is DESPERATE for such deliverance, restoration, and renewal, but UNTIL we choose to walk on the side of the road that He told us, rather than running down the middle for fear of offense and wavering, voicing no real opinion and trying to make everyone FEEL accepted, we are not accomplishing anything for the kingdom and ONLY causing more confusion.

I LOVE people, I WANT everyone to feel safe, accepted, and to KNOW their TRUE VALUE in Christ, but if I hang with them and KNOW they have other beliefs, OTHER gods, and pat them on the back and tell them “It’ll be alright, you’ll figure it out” than I have accomplished is to cheapen the true Gospel down to AN OPTION, rather than THE ONLY WAY to salvation, and have let THEIR beliefs bow them and us  down.

As far as “tolerance”, this is just another one of satan’s trap, just because you do not agree with someone’s beliefs DOES NOT mean you hate them or that you feel superior and in overcompensation against being misunderstood as this, we have LOWERED the requirements for the true worship of Jehovah God.

This has led to so many FALSE beliefs, beliefs in a spirit world afterlife of no heaven, no hell, and certainly NO JUDGEMENT. Belief that you can be “good” person and go “to heaven” without the acknowledgment and acceptance of Christ as Savior.

The belief that is acceptable to seek and be advised by “mediums” and ” physics”. That it is perfectly okay to have sexual relationships OUTSIDE of marriage, or with the same-sex. That there “is more than one way to heaven” which IS the biggest lie of them all. The constant FALSE reassurance given to the world that ” It all works out and that EVERYONE will be saved” NONE of this is RIGHT!

God is VERY clear on ALL subjects through His Word and we have to start teaching this, living this, and applying this and just be brave enough to deal with the fact that not everyone is going to like us or appreciate it, because God did say to be a friend of the world is an enmity against Him and that means being  a “friend” to this world, the thoughts, attitudes, teachings, and actions of popular thought and society IS considered HOSTILE against God.

Let that soak in! Think about it in terms as nations, when a nation commits an act that is considered HOSTILE against another nation, war often ensues, how much more can be expected from committing HOSTILE acts against the Living God, who controls life, death, and heaven, and hell simply by the Word of His Mouth? And who on earth is capable of taking Him on in battle?

That my dear friends is why we need to rethink our approach in dealing with this. You don’t have to be everyone’s best friend, you can be social to them and leave it at that but when you start getting too chummy with their beliefs in the name of fellowship, they are NOT going to get converted to the true Gospel and all your going to get is a snare to your own soul and the Bible is full of story after story, including King Solomon, who had been CHOSEN of God to build the temple, and even HE FELL to paganism through the influence of pagan wives and forgetting everything he had been taught and falling to the trap of self-assurance in his OWN self-righteousness.

And do you think if he, a man whom God had spoken to and offered to give WHATEVER he asked of him, and if he could fall prey to the deception, what are earth makes any of us believe we are so much spiritually stronger and so much wiser than even Solomon?

So here is a little refresher course, from the WORD of the ONE whose never changes and whose word is for ever settled in heaven and WILL never change, while giving the Ten Commandments, and the reverence and fear the Hebrews experienced that we would do well to remember now.

Exodus 20: 18,24: “And ALL the people saw the thunderings, and the lightenings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain SMOKING: and when the people saw it,  they removed (trembled) and stood afar off (far away).

And they said unto Moses, Speak thou now with us, and we will hear: but let God NOT speak with us, LEST WE DIE.

And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove (test) you, and that his fear be before your faces (the fear of Him, His power and majesty) THAT YE SIN NOT (so you WILL NOT sin against Him).

And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven . Ye shall NOT make WITH ME gods of silver, NEITHER shall ye make unto you gods of gold.

An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shall sacrifice therein thy burnt offerings, and thine peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in ALL places where I record my name I WILL COME TO THEE, AND I WILL BLESS THEE.”

The people HEARD, they KNEW, and the were wise enough to respect his majesty and omniscience. And He did this so they would be aware of who brought them out and whose commands they were to keep. And He warned them to absolutely NOT make, or have other “gods” along with Him.

The altar of earth foreshadowing His plan that one day His Temple would be in the earthy vessels as our bodies ARE the temples of God and His will done in these earthen vessels of our bodies as His will is done is the mighty realms of the heavens.

And also notice that HIS PROMISE to us in keeping this command in ALL places (regardless WHERE you are or WHO  your hanging with) is that  HE WILL COME TO US and HE WILL BLESS US but we have to do our part first. 

And even so to the point that He commands us to NOT even MENTION the names of these pagan “gods”. Which RULES out studying them to understand them, RULES OUT  discussing the pros and cons of that particular “religion”, IT RULES OUT THE RISK OF THESE FALSE DOCTRINES POLLUTING YOUR SOUL BY BECOMING MINGLED WITH THE TRUE GOSPEL, TAINTED WITH CONFUSION AND DECEPTIONS AND TINGING YOUR WHITE GARMENT WITH FILTHY SPOTS THAT WILL FORFEIT YOUR ENTRANCE INTO THE KINGDOM.

Exodus 23: 13: “And in ALL things that I HAVE SAID UNTO YOU BE CIRCUMSPECT ( wary, heedful, watchful, attentive, alert, careful, cautious, and UNWILLING to take a risk): and MAKE NO MENTION F THE NAME OF OTHER gods, NEITHER LET IT BE HEARD OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.”  

So that IS God’s word about it and we know that He is the final WORD and Authority on ALL subjects. But here a few more verses to encourage you to flee friends, co-workers, whoever, whatever that hold and adhere to false doctrines, again you can be nice but as God told us to be very careful and very alert and be UNWILLING to EVEN RISK become impregnated by those other beliefs because we care for and genuinely like the person who holds those beliefs, that is how it attached itself to Solomon. 

Matthew 5:8: “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Just as God told us, He is jealous, He is jealous for our heart and we must keep our heart pure in Him and for Him.

James 1:27 (c)…” and to KEEP himself UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD.” Again, please notice that this requiring is to KEEP our own selves unspotted, doesn’t say God will keep us unspotted, this is on us, to be diligent against false doctrine and anything that could possibly worm its way into our hearts and souls.

And finally, we all desire to hear those faithful words of comfort as the last day judgment hits and God will call His people OUT of the mighty  city of Babylon (Revelation 18:4) that they “not be partakers of her plagues” and they be spared the destruction, we must also HEED the call of the Lord when He tells us to COME OUT and be SEPERATED. We must quit playing footsie with the devil, with pagans, and lose the fascinations with false doctrines when the Lord has FORBADE us to EVEN speak their names! Stay away from them and be blessed, be visited, be delivered, and SEE the salvation and Glory of God COME to this earth.

2 Corinthians 6:15-18: “And what concord (accord, agreement with) hath Christ with Belial (pagan devil)? OR what part hath he that believeth with an infidel (unbeliever)?

And what part hath THE TEMPLE OF GOD WITH IDOLS? for YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD; as God hath said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM, AND WALK WITH THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.

WHEREFORE COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPERATE  (separated FROM them) saith the Lord, AND TOUCH NO UNCLEAN THING; AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, SAITH THE LORD ALMIGHTY.”

Notice the PROMISES of I WILL, we honor Him and HE WILL be everything we need, want, or even could possibly imagine!   Till next time, Love, Peace, & prayers for a joyous week ahead!

Laughing their way RIGHT INTO HELL….

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR GOD, and keep his commandments: for this IS the whole duty of man. For God shall bring EVERY work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good , or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes 12: 13,14

I am forever amazed at the entertainment industry and how far they will go for ratings and to make the almighty dollar, and the willingness to sell out anything and everything to further their careers, including THEIR OWN SOULS.

When I think I have seen it all, I discover that i was quite wrong.. I do not watch very many shows because most now are absolute filth and even if someone else is watching and there is “something” there it will present “itself”, I truly believe God allows this so it can “warned” of and I have even had people comment to me that had watched so & so and had NEVER heard anything like that before or noticed certain references mocking Christians and God.

There is list and no one needs them pointed out but I will and if you ARE watching any of these shows, you’d better think again. Of course SNL, South Park, and anything Bill Maher, Bill Nye, and the late George Carlin has touched is polluted filth, PERIOD.

The list could go and on and what is even more horrific is the cartoons and “teen” programs which are weaving in anti-God “jokes” and even point-blank blasphemy such as SEVERAL different references to “tongues” and actually mimicking and mocking that characters are “Christians” and I caught one that even had the audience chanting “HG” they were saying the name , I will NOT use it here for fear, but it is reference to ONE of the members of the HOLY TRINITY, chanting this while a skit member who was supposed to be an “old Christian” man RAN the aisle of the audience. The most horrify thought with this, the person who did that skit PROFESSES Christ.

Al Sharpton (whom I’m NOT even getting into!) doing a skit years ago, also on SNL as a “wise man” from the Nativity story and here is the deal, NO ONE mocks God and when all the “curse” started following the “Batman” trilogy, you know, Heath Ledger dying while doing the joker, ( I know the world argues that but I don’t write for the world, so…) and then as we know the horrific theater shootings related to the SAME character.

Just a case of mental illnesses? Think not, you can trace the beginning of this back to the first in the Trilogy when the “Batman” character mocks God. And it is in movie after movie, after movie.

These shows are fiction, the character are fictitious but GOD IS VERY REAL and He will not be mocked period and no one is going to tell him it is a joke or it is a job and when you have shows geared toward kids, they grow up thinking it is okay to mock God and Christians and WHEN CHRISTIANS LAUGH RIGHT ALONG SIDE THEM who is telling them otherwise?

HOW serious is this? How about serious enough to NEVER be forgiven? To speak against the Holy Ghost is UNFORGIVABLE. Jesus will FORGIVE us for ANYTHING, murder, stealing, adultery, ANY sin you can name BUT NOT SPEAKING AGAINST HIS SPIRIT.

 “He that is NOT with me IS AGAINST ME; and he that GATHERETH NOT with me; SCATTERETH abroad. 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 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.”  Matthew 12:30-33

Jesus HIMSELF is telling us that if we are not gathering with Him we ARE SCATTERING, to hear these things and be aware of them and sit idly by while our God is being mocked and us either laughing or NOT saying anything and NOT letting others KNOW that this is wrong and not only is it wrong, IT CAN COST THEM THEIR VERY SOUL, makes us the worst kind of “scatterers” and He also tells us that a person may speak a word AGAINST Him and BE FORGIVEN but to speak AGAINST HIS HOLY GHOST WILL NEVER BE FORGIVEN NOT IN THIS WORLD OR THE NEXT.

So if you have NEVER thought about this or if you have NEVER been taught that it is wrong, I AM HERE TO TELL YOU, IT IS WRONG.

God IS HOLY, God WANTS us to have joy and laughter IS merry medicine but IN context. THERE IS NEVER, EVER AN EXCUSABLE REASON TO MAKE JOKES ABOUT GOD OR ANYTHING PERTAINING TO HIM OR HIS KINGDOM, OR HIS FOLLOWERS, EVER!

I am also shocked at the amount of “memes” that flood social media and most are supposed to be “Pentecostal” humor, and TRUE Pentecostal or any other denominations of God’s children could tell people sending these things out that is the devil and the devil only that finds this stuff humorous and ones who share it are LETTING satan use them to mock and ridicule their fellow-servants and it further SCATTERS the flock.

But DON’T take my word for it. TAKE THE WORD: ” HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, NOR THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IN THE LAND. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out (BREAK ALL RESTRAINTS), and blood toucheth blood.

Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven;yea, the fishes of the sea shall also be taken away. YET NO MAN STRIVE (CONTEND), NOR REPROVE (reprimand) ANOTHER: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest. 

Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and THE PROPHET ALSO SHALL FALL (stumble) WITH THEE IN THE NIGHT,And I will destroy thy mother. MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: because thou hast REJECTED knowledge, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, that thou shalt be no priest to me:….” Hosea 4:1-6(a)  

His people ARE being destroyed because of a lack of knowledge and we see quite clearly whose feet the blame for this will be laid at.

“The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth (takes) it to heart: and merciful men are taken away. none considering that the righteous are is taken away from the evil to come: He shall enter into peace, they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness (having God’s righteousness and salvation).

BUT DRAW HITHER (come close), ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore (harlot). Against WHOM do ye sport (RIDICULE) yourselves? Against WHOM make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression , a seed of falsehood.” Isaiah 57:1-4

We KNOW who they speak against and we also KNOW their end:

“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 have gone the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam FOR REWARD (profit), and PERISHED IN THE GAINSAYING (rebellion) of Core.

These ARE spots (stains) in your feasts of charity, when the feast with YOU, feeding themselves WITHOUT FEAR: clouds they are WITHOUT WATER, carried about of winds; Trees WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH (dries up) WITHOUT FRUIT, TWICE DEAD, plucked up by the roots;

RAGING waves of the sea, FOAMING OUT OF 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 thousand of his saints. TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT ON 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 MEN’S ADMIRATION BECAUSE OF ADVANTAGE. 

But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How they told you there should be (would be) MOCKERS IN THE LAST TIME (last days), who should (would) walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves (cause divisions), sensual (worldly) having NOT the Spirit.

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves, on your most holy faith, PRAYING IN THE HOLY GHOST. Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And of some HAVE COMPASSION making a difference (distinction). And others SAVE WITH FEAR, pulling them out of the fire: HATING EVEN THE GARMENT SPOTTED (DEFILED) BY THE FLESH.” Jude verses 10-23

Not going to be quit so funny… do your part and speak up every opportunity you are presented with, God will not be mocked and in hell the laughter will cease, your voice against this “entertainment” may be the voice that prevents someone from going there.

“And Yet… ” PART 1, Playing with paganism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please join me next time for part 2

” 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!***

BELIEVE A LIE AND BE…… Part 1

Original post: 07/18/2014/ FOWC/ Avenue
Before we continue dealing with that heart condition (Cardiac Shock), we have to stop and take a look down the road of mass deception and deal with some rather blasphemous boulders.
I give credit where credit is due, my BF Genia turned me onto these several years ago.
I am somewhat of a “Brown Recluse” and live a pretty secluded life and had completely missed this somewhere along the way.
But if you are not familiar with these monumental monstrosities, you will be as shocked as I was to learn about them.
The Georgia Guide Stones.
It is the counterfeit rules in opposition to the Ten Commandments of God, that I believe are very similar to the rules that’s will be instated by the Anti-Christ once he comes into power over the nations.
Many old timers used to believe that it would be a near impossibility for a one world order to come into power, especially considering that America had always been a God fearing, strong, and powerful nation who never backed down from enemies.
Times change, and it is clear to see where these changes have led us.
Not only is he coming into power, it is closer than anyone would want to believe.
The mass population for sometime now have been slowly and methodically groomed into sedation.
I am reminded of Delilah stroking the head of the mighty Samson to lull him to sleep, so that he then could be handed over to his enemies for slaughter, completely unaware of the tragedy about to befall him.
In the spirit world, Satan sits with the majority of the blinded world cradled in his lap stroking their heads in false adoration and comfort, whispering his lies, filling their minds with his twisted version of “love”, “peace”, and “fairness” because they all seek that affirmation that their self righteousness is a good thing and the perceived reassurance that no judgment will come.
“Through peace, (rather the false promise of it) he will destroy many.”
He will promise global prosperity, fairness, and “justice” for all.
He will promise to provide a tolerant, peace loving world for all to just enjoy being “who they were created to be” with out fear or rejection”.
And now about “that ocean front property” he is selling, he will also have the complete backing of all the sheer power of hell, and with that he will be so charismatic and charming that the whole world will fall at his feet and hail him as their king.
His plans for world peace will sound so good that it will be music to the ears of those already slated to pledge allegiance to him and receive the mark of his name and many will gladly accept it.
As Nebuchadnezzar and his golden image, they will be expected to worship him and his image.
We know our Commandments given from god to honour him and for our good and well being.
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
4. Remember the Sabbath day, Keep it holy.
5. Homour thy Father and thy Mother.
6.Thou shalt not kill.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8. Thou shalt not steal.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
10.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.
Now for the counterfeit, which was constructed around 1980 at the request of a person using the pseudonym, RC Christian (so please would mistakenly believe this had some tie to Christianity) located in Elbert county, Georgia (like everything else, right under your nose, in your backyard, hidden in plain sight) ten rules in numerical order, carved on five huge granite stones, nineteen feet tall and written in several languages,, constructed to allow for astrological oddities (occultism).
You will just have to web search it to really get the full magnitude and spiritual implications of this thing.
Here is the main ideal of each one, they will not be numbered, nor will I quote them verbatim.
Keep world population at 500,000,000.
Control reproduction, no reproduction of the “poor”.
One world language.
NO faith, NO traditions, allowed, ONLY realism.
No petty laws or “useless” officials.
ONE WORLD COURT SYSTEM.
Personal rights less important than social duties.
“Harmony” with the infinite.
Do not harm earth. ( mother earth)
Is it just me or does all this sound a wee bit Hilter-ish?
2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12 “Even him, whose coming IS after the working of Satan with all power, and signs, and lying wonders, And all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. AND FOR THIS CAUSE (REASON) GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELIOUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE: THAT THEY MIGHT ALL BE DAMNED (CONDEMNED) WHO BELIEVE NOT THE TRUTH, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.”
Unraveling it all next time!

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 GRIEVIOUS (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.
