“All that hinders, all that binds,& the lies that trap the mind.”

“He that believeth on him IS NOT condemned: but he that believeth not IS condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God.

  And this IS the condemnation, that the light is come into the world, and men loved darkness more than the light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, lest his deeds be reproved (exposed). But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be manifest, that they are wrought in God.” JOHN 3:18-20

How sad, how sad is it when there are people who TRULY, TRULY BELIEVE that God does indeed exist, that Jesus Christ IS indeed the perfect Lamb of God, who BELIEVE the Gospel and every single precious word of it and yet they chose not to accept that Gospel and choose not to accept salvation. How do we ever minister to them?

As in an earlier post, we know that Jesus compares it to children, who no matter how gentle the message, no matter how hot the flames of the fire of hell is preached, they still refuse to accept eternal life through Him, through in WHOM THEY DO BELIEVE. What is wrong with that picture?

Many are mind trapped the have really bought the lies that for whatever reason, the Gospel is good…..just NOT good for them.

Is it self-esteem, is it self punishment, is it a feeling of true hopelessness, worthlessness? What is it? I would love to ask that. Why turn down the greatest love and mercy ever known? Why not be free, truly free, free in happiness, free in peace, and free to live to live a life your never imagined? Maybe someone, the enemy, or maybe the biggest enemy of all, self has convinced you that you ARE condemned.

But the words above are the words of Jesus and HE IS the ultimate authority on ALL things and HE said “if you believe in Him, you ARE not condemned”.

And if you believe and accept Him, ROMANS 8:1, PROMISES, ” THERE is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to them that which are in Christ Jesus, who walk NOT after the flesh, but after the spirit.”

Our righteousness (right standing with God) IS as filthy rags, we have all sinned, we are born into sin and people love to remind you of your past and there are always those who love to tell you that you will never make it trying to live for the Lord, but the Bible says “let God be true and every man a liar” there will NEVER be anything we can do to redeem ourselves.

There will never be anything that we can do to undo our mistakes. But the most foolish thing that we can ever do is to stand before the Lord and “Say I know you would have saved me, but I just wasn’t worth it.” NO ONE is worth it in themselves but we were ALL worth it to Him. It is not His will that any should perish and He gave His life so we would not have to give ours and the thought that we must “make our self ready” for salvation is not  aright thought.

God does not require us to do any of the changing, he requires us to LET HIM CHANGE US! And to analyze, think, plan, and weigh out the options of whether or not we can “give up” this or that and to hold out until we “can live it” is absolutely NOT of God and has nothing to do with true desire for salvation. These thoughts and persuasion are only there to keep us bond and hindered.

What if tomorrow never comes? What if the next breath is the second to your last? Would you accept Him then? What if, without a moment’s warning, half the things in Revelation start to come to pass? What if destruction comes, what if you find yourself on this earth, having missed the ONLY opportunity to flee the trails and tribulations of the last days, by not accepting Christ BEFORE those things come to pass, what happens then? And you STILL BELEIVE?

Well, no one knows the preordained moment of their death, but as sure as we are born, God ALREADY knows the date, hour, second, and millisecond of the moment we WILL leave this earth. We will not be allowed to come back and change our minds and ask for a do over. We are given ONE life here on this earth. “It is appointed ONCE unto man to die” and after that the judgment.

If you believe, then surely you have noticed all those things which are coming to pass, and knowing that you need to know that all that is written, all that has been foretold can happen in  a blink of an eye and even though you may live through the initial things, you will die for your faith, if you are to denounce the beast and refuse the mark.

So now, what hinders you? What is it that binds you? HEBREWS 12:1″WHEREFORE seeing (since) that we are compassed (surrounded) about with such a great cloud of witnesses, LET US LAY ASIDE (put down) EVERY WEIGHT (all those things that are hindering you) and the sin which doth so easily beset (ensnare) us, and let us RUN with patience (perseverance) the race that is set before us.” 

Jesus said YOU are NOT condemned IF you believe in Him, so why on earth are you condemning yourself? ACCEPT His mercy, His peace, and His salvation while they may be accepted. Renew your mind in Him:

2 CORINTHIANS 10:5: “Casting down (tearing down, destroying) imaginations, and EVERY high thing that exalteth itself against (comes in place of) THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD,  and bringing INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.” 

The knowledge that God does love you, God wants to save you, and stop believing the lies and your own thoughts that want to say otherwise and bring all those thought into Him and WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT YOU and be obedient to the fact that His word is the final authority concerning your soul! And if God doesn’t want to send you to hell, why do you wanna send yourself there?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Sex & Violence”

“And as it was in the days of Noe  (Noah), so shall IT BE also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, UNTIL THE DAY Noe (Noah) entered the ark, and THE FLOOD CAME, and DESTROYED THEM ALL.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; BUT the SAME DAY that lot went out of Sodom IT RAINED FIRE AND BRIMSTONE from heaven and DESTROYED THEM ALL.

Even thus shall IT BE IN THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF MAN IS REVEALED.”  LUKE 17: 26-30 Of course Jesus speaking there concerning the end times and how to discern the time. So how was it in the days of Noah? Well, much like today, people were full of violence and hatred bred and became a spiritual force that ran one to another.

GENESIS 6:5-7,11,12 : “And God saw that the wickedness of man (humankind) was great in the earth, and that EVERY imagination of the thoughts of his heart (a persons thoughts and intents) was ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY ( a pure evil all day long). 

And it repented the Lord THAT HE HAD MADE MAN on the earth (HE WAS SORRY THAT HE CREATED HUMANS) and IT GREIVED HIM AT HIS HEART.

And the Lord said, I WILL DESTROY MAN WHOM I HAVE CREATED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH; both, man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for IT repenteth me ( I am sorry) that I have made them.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and THE EARTH WAS FILLED WITH VIOLENCE. And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; FOR ALL FLESH (people) had corrupted (perverted) his way upon earth.”

Most know his reference to Lot and Sodom but for those who may not, check out GENESIS chapters eighteen and nineteen. To highlight the story, Sodom and Gomorrah was two nasty little places. Abraham’s nephew Lot lived there with his family and much like today, the “cry” of the sin of the cities was reaching into heaven and God and two angels came down to see if it was as bad as they thought. God is very merciful and He is very just and He will not bring down judgments unprovoked. So, sure enough it really was that bad. In fact so bad, so twisted, and so possessed with sex that JUDE 7 states this:

Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them IN LIKE MANNER, (doing as they did) GIVING THEMSELVES OVER TO FORNICATION, AND GOING AFTER STRANGE FLESH (SEX, SEX, AND MORE SEX) are set forth FOR AN EXAMPLE, SUFFERING THE VENGENACE OF ETERNAL FIRE.”

So when God sent the two angels to get Lot and his family out before the destruction, that the men of the town demanded that the “men” be handed over to them to be gang raped instead they were blinded by the angels and the next day:

 GENESIS 19:23-25,28: ” The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar, Then the LORD RAINED UPON SODOM AND UPON GOMORRAH BRIMSTONE AND FIRE FROM THE LORD OUT OF HEAVEN; and he overthrew (DEVESTATED) those cities, and all the plain, and ALL THE INHABITANTS of those cities, and that which grew upon the ground. And he (Lot) looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.”

Jesus using these two stories to give us the last day warning of this, when you see the world taken over by violence and hatred and when you see the sexual desires of those people take precedence over every single aspect of human existence then you will know that AS ASSUREDLY as they keep right on running until the day they WERE destroyed then also in these days it will be the same. So if God was SAD that HE EVER EVEN created humans in Noah’s time, how much more sorrow do you think he feels now?

We have far surpassed the violence of Noah’s day, People beating people just for the thrill of it, kidnapping and holding people as slaves, mothers PAY to have babies murdered and the murderers then sell the body parts. School kids shooting schoolkids, road rage, no sense of human decency and any shred of kindness to be found, everyone angry because of their color, their rights, their anything, just as long as they have a reason to let the anger of hell reside within them and unleash it on others.

It is no longer safe to go to a movie, or the mall, or even the workplace without the real possibility of being gunned down by a hate filled person. Oh I almost forgot, it is not the unhinged people who kill people, it is the guns! More of the same demonic lies that have led us to where we are. WE ARE at the end of the road.

The spirits of Sodom are just as Jesus said it would be when we have a society that no one can just keep their sex life to themselves, no, they have to wear it like a tag and now to believe that we can’t even have separate bathrooms because someone always has to be made to feel accepted. I don’t care, I do not want to use the bathroom with any guy, even if he is confused and wants to be female and may not be interested in females at all but what about the predators who only want a fabulous opportunity to attack more victims?

And what about the guys who do not want to use the bathroom with chicks whether the want to fit in with the boys or not? WHERE is my right to MY PRIVACY? Where are your rights? That does not make any one a bigot and I am so sick of hearing how they are all victims and everyone else is either prejudice or homophobic.

Just more of the divide, conquer and let everyone destroy themselves. I really thought I had seen it all, but last night I saw a site that for a donation will send you a cute, little bumper sticker of a cartoon animal holding a sign that says “Save the baby humans” and another story on a  certain possessed former Disney star that is doing her thing with abortion rights touting a pin that tells us all with a four letter word, what we can do if we don’t like women’s rights to murder their babies.

And just as those days came, So is the day of the Lord. Can you only imagine how angry He is now?

It is times like these that I just can not believe this world. Even knowing all the things that WILL come to pass, I still find it hard to believe that we have hit this level and it is just as He said it would be. I know all the arguments, the ones that laugh, that mock, that do not believe, and that is okay, He answered that also, they will do their thing until THAT DAY and they will not even know what hit them. The general thought in the world is to let people do as they wish, but you know what? To say nothing is to condone and when judgment comes no one will be able to say that did not know. If you have heard the Gospel and even by reading this, you know and God does too.

Matthew 24: 35-37,42,44: ” Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. BUT of THAT DAY and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the DAYS of Noe (Noah)  WERE, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. 

WATCH therefore: FOR YE KNOW NOT what hour your Lord doth come. Therefore  BE YE ALSO READY for in such an hour as ye THINK NOT the Son of man COMETH.”

” Merchandising with Markdown Mike”

*** Any resemblance of the character in this post to certain televangelists IS really NOT that much of a coincidence!***

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!

Psalm 136:10-16

To HIM that smote Egypt in their firstborn in their firstborn: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER:

And brought out Israel from among them; FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER:

With strong hand, and with a stretched out arm; FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER.

TO HIM which DIVIDED THE RED SEA into parts FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER:

And made Israel to PASS THROUGH THE MIDST OF IT: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER:  

But OVERTHREW Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER.

VALOR VICTORIOUS

***Archive post, original post date 08/05/2015***

The truest test of bravery comes not by being the strongest,the most well-trained, or sharpest shooter on the field.
The results of the true test of bravery comes through what would appear the weakest and least prepared of soldiers.
And we know all about judging books by covers or rather the warning not too, all know the story of Samuel being sent to Jesse, to complete the task of anointing a new king, and we know that in the family opinion, David’s kingly attribute’s were so, how shall we say… um, lacking, nada, zilch, not even gonna happen, that they didn’t even bother to call him in.

BUT it was this boy, who had that little something extra, tucked away so deep on the inside that NO ONE could even see it, but he would be chosen, because GOD saw it, because God had placed it there.

Gideon, another who FEARFULLY HID from his enemies to get food for his family, and even when he was angelically informed that the enemies demise was gonna be his job, he NEEDED reassurance that this was GOD’S ideal not his, (I had actually heard Gideon referred to as a “sissy” by a Bible teacher once, I’m like, bite your tongue!)
Gideon was WISE, he could have died by the hand of his enemies and been fine, but to fall into the hands of  the Living God is a very different, very terrifying fate!

Mary, the consummate story of having a table prepared in the presence of your enemies!
She KNEW what these guys thought of her, BUT she had to go into the HOUSE OF HER ENEMY and pour out her soul, ( IN THEIR PRESENCE) and wash Jesus’ feet with her tears and dry them with her hair, which at this time, hair was considered a lady’s glory and to use it is in such a display of absolute humility (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH HUMILIATION!) was unheard of, but oh, what had been laid out on that table!

There are so many today, who just do not know YET, the full power of what is living right there inside of you, that courage to pour yourself out, the courage to share your pain and sorrows and lay down at the master’s feet for all the world to see.
Sometimes our spiritual battles could be best compared to wounded creatures, when they are hurt and so desperately need treatment and those who try to intervene are met with growls and a display of teeth, sometimes those wounds are so painful that we don’t want anyone seeing them or touching them, BUT it is in those wounds and allowing the healing of them that true valor and courage are shown to others.

Sometimes in the church world there can be a lack of empathy, I once heard a man years and years ago say something, and I am not bashing him, I actually like him and I know this was based on sheer lack of empathy, it in was in context of joy, and he made the reference of giving the devil too much credit and that a lady had said he just didn’t know what the devil had put her through, his answer was don’t give credit to the devil. It took a lot for me not ask him, had he ever been raped?
Maybe then he could come back and tell us all how fast he overcame it.
Standing in faith with her and praying for her when she was too weak to stand alone would have served much better than reprimanding her for feeling. And this guaranteed no one else who was listening would ever chance showing their pain for fear of being rejected as “weak”.
I also love another oldie, really prevalent with the old school crew (And yes, I love them too, just using examples here), about people “coming in looking like they’ve been sucking on lemons” and “How can God’s people lack joy?”
It is not that they lack joy, obviously if they have survived thus far, they have a better foundation with God, then some would think.

There are snares, traps, and schemes from then enemy BUT sometimes people have problems and wounds that TAKE TIME TO HEAL!

I heard a minister say the coolest thing ever once, I am quoting him, because I do not have his name or otherwise I would give it, but he said when you ask someone how they are and they reply “fine” this usually means “Fractured, Injured, Neurotic, and Empty”!
But that pressure to be whole, groovy, problem free Christians doesn’t really send out a safety beacon to those who don’t necessarily feel that  same way!
I am sincerely happy for the ones who have it together and have reached that place we strive to, the place of perfect love, blessing your enemies, joying in persecutions and WE TRULY MUST attempt to reach that, but for those who haven’t and those in the world, struggling to keep their heads up out of the water, another warrior is sometimes needed to stand with them in that battle.
Broken, broken people have no connection to others who profess to never, ever have a care in the world, or have never made a mistake and treat others tears with disgust.
True courage and true valor are found in the honesty of someone admitting they are not perfect, that they struggle but that they never surrender in that battle and THAT is what acts as that beacon of hope, the love and light of Jesus, shining through that once broken vessel, for the world to see, his light reflecting through as rays of hope on the black, deathly violent waging sea of this world.

David, through the NAME of the Lord (which was HIS high tower) defeated a GIANT that EVERYONE ELSE dared not tangle with, what is often forgotten about this story, THEY PLANNED TO TAKE ALL ISRAEL AS SLAVES!
So this wasn’t just a victory for David, it was God using him to prevent the enslavement of them all!

Gideon’ sword backed by the SWORD of the Lord defeated the enemies that had held them virtual prisoners in their own land, God even subtracting the army numbers down to three hundred to ensure to ALL who fought this battle!

Mary, who was quite accustomed to being treated like an object was completely vindicated when Jesus HEARD THE THOUGHTS in Simon’s head concerning her and lined him out at Simon’s own dinner, in front of all his guests, that HE KNEW WHO SHE WAS!

And Mary never would have been invited to the dinner table of a Pharisee but blessed she never left the table of the Lord, she went on to follow him and she was the first he appeared to after his resurrection.  

Simon was half right, only out of context with his judgmental thinking, JESUS DID KNOW exactly who it was touching Him, it was his messed up, wounded daughter who came to be healed, He knew Mary’s soul, something none of us can ever know about another.
So be strong, be of good courage, don’t be afraid to show others all your scars from the wounds Jesus has healed, let them see and then they won’t be so afraid to let Him see theirs because HE WANTS TO HEAL THEM but they have to be willing to let Him look at all those bloody places in their souls.

Revelation 2:7: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”

Revelation 2:11: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”

Revelation 2:17: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”

Revelation 2:26: “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations.”

Revelation 3:5: “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”

Revelation 3:12: “Him that overcometh, I will make a pillar in the temple of my God, and the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”

Revelation 3:21: “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”

These are HIS promises to you! All things made new, all the labels gone, new names, and forever be in the presence of Him!
He also told us to “Let NO MAN take your crown”  (scriptural meaning humans, male or female) that let’s you know you gotta fight!
So how do you do that?
You fight with courage, and valor, and vigor just like Mary and the others and NOT care who sees, or what they think and you worship your God! And as others try to give you a hard time, remember this verse, this is who is really attacking you:

Revelation 12:10
” And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and of  the power of his Christ: FOR THE ACCUSER of our brethren is cast down, WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.”

 When someone tries to remind you of your past, you remind them who they are, agents of Satan, accusing you because they are filled with him.
Take this sword, keep it and your mind sharp to the power of it:

Revelation 12:11
“And THEY OVERCAME HIM (devil) BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, and THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THAT THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.”

The union between heaven and earth, first the surrendering into His blood and then your own testimony of what the blood of the Lamb has changed in your life and not loving your “friends” or lifestyle, or worldly image more!
Ponder it today and so many of you, are here for this time on earth, to be THAT light on behalf of Jesus.

 Let NO ONE stop you, and never lose your crown or your guts!

“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.
