LOVE HURTS~



Have you ever spoken with a parent of a heroin addict? They know what it means to love so much it hurts. You can compare the love our Father God has towards a rebellious people to that with a parent of a child addict.

These parents try everything to turn their child away from the destructive heroin habit. It pains them to watch their child steal, sell their own bodies, and destroy the lives of loved ones all for the next fix. The next high. Only to run back and do it over and over again.

Finally, out of love the parent gives them up to their own destruction. They lock the child out of the home changing the locks. When the child finally hits rock bottom they come running home begging and pleading with more empty promises. More lies. But the parent says no. Only if they agree to rehab.

Some will agree to rehab and will go through a living hell fighting many demons while painful gut wrenching healing takes place to bring about a refined product with a lifetime of mind renewal therapy ahead.

Sadly, some still refuse and end up dead on the streets.

God even says there will come a time when He no longer hears the cries and sorrows of those who turn back to Him during Tribulation. He will even laugh and mock at their pleading as they mocked and laughed at God and His many prophets and watchmen. Prov. 1:26

Even when God sends the most aweful painful plagues on those left to suffer their own consequences to the rejection of truth they will still curse and blame God instead of turn to Him in repentance. Rev. 16:11


Real love will warn others using the wisdom and Word of God which is where all power and truth is found. Those who walk with God today can't help but feel anguish for the increased suffering of the body of Christ and the open rebellion and mockery against Jesus Christ who knows what it means to love so much it hurts. Romans 12:15

Those who are still engaging in their next high/fix will tell those with the truth/the sword/God's Word to shut up and speak nice things not gloom and doom. Isaiah 30:9-11

I APOLOGIZE TO YOU GOD~



I Apologize to You God

By David J. Stewart

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." —Psalm 9:17

       I apologize on behalf of my nation. The United States of America has become a large Sodom and Gomorrah. I am so sorry Lord, you deserve far much better. You have blessed us with freedom, and yet we taunt your holiness by living in unrepentant sin. You gave us your precious Word, and yet we have banned It from our public school's curriculum since 1963. 

Your Word teaches us to pray; yet since 1962 teachers have been legally forbidden to lead children in prayer. You teach us in your Holy Word that you lovingly formed mankind out of the dust of the earth, and breathed into us the breath of life; yet, our schools are legally required to teach children that they evolved from apes.

We are so filled with sinful pride and stubbornness in America that we have even renamed one of our most popular cities SIN CITY! Some people believe that You judged New Orleans with hurricane Katrina, which makes me wonder what's going to happen to Sin City Las Vegas? Americans, including professed Christians, can't seem to get enough of Sin City. The overall themes of Sin City are gambling and fornication. In fact, Nevada boasts oflegalized prostitution. And let me tell you, What Happens in Vegas is RECORDED in Heaven! I apologize to you Lord Jesus, that we are such big hypocrites in this country. 

You told us in 1st John 3:8... "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." We not only commit sin in America, we parade it up and down our streets in the form of homosexual parades and public nudity. This is what God is talking about in 1st John 3:8. Gay pride is sinful pride. In Brattleboro, Vermont, citizens are legally allowed to walk aroundcompletely naked, and they do!

There is nothing as filthy in America today as County Music Television(CMT). CMT is nothing but a bunch of whores and whoremongers who don't care about morals or decency! I'm so sorry that we treat you like garbage Lord. 

Unbelievably, most of these country-music-singing-hypocrites call themselves Christians, who help produce lascivious videos to make a buck, and cause more sexual sins. We are so wicked Lord, that we even taunt your command not to commit idolatry by hosting a show calledAMERICAN IDOL. Carrie Underwood sings, Jesus Take the Wheel; but her personal life is an entirely different story, having been featured inSELF

I apologize on her behalf Lord, that she has mocked your name. Faith Hill, who has unrepentantly posed twice in Playboy, sang the Gospel hymn I Surrender All on the Oprah Winfreyshow. I'm sorry for her wickedness Lord. We area rotten bunch in America. We claim to trust in you; but we DON'T.

Woe unto America, we deserve the judgment we are bringing upon ourselves. Where is repentance? Where is sorrow over sin? Where is the guilt that we should have as a nation over our wickedness? We are a stiff-necked people, many of whom are working relentlessly to passanti-hate speech laws to shun the truth of God's Word concerning sin. No one is trying to shun the Atheists, homosexuals, Communists or feminists. No one is trying to shun Black Muslims who spew absolutely contempt and hatred for Caucasian people. No, but they want to shun Christians who Biblically speak out against the sin of homosexuality. This nation is headed for the dust! I apologize to you Lord, for we are a woefully sinful people.

I apologize to you God for the blasphemous ads ran on Washington D.C. buses throughout the Thanksgiving holidays in 2008. We are so ungrateful for your blessings in America. I'm sorry that we spit in your face in the United States. I'm sorry that Sarah Palin and many professed Christians like her call you a liar and a war criminal. I'm sorry that most of our churches are blinded by apostasy and support tyranny. I apologize that we are stealing Iraq's oil. Sadly, we arrogantly think we can do as we please in America and don't take responsibility for our actions as a nation. We are woefully guilty.

I am sorry Lord, that we are a nation of quitters and liars. Our divorce rate is higher than any nation on earth, bar none.  We Americans all exchange the same wedding vows... “For better, for worse; 'til death do us part”; BUT, then we look for excuses and reasons to justify a divorce when we want out. People do what they want to do, and then look for reasons to justify their actions, with no honest regard for the truth of your Word Lord. Evil people all across America are running around spouting, “Some marriages just weren't meant to be,” with absolutely no regard for their marriage vows, or Your Holy Word. 

We have deteriorated into a nation of liars, cheaters, and promise-breakers. We have sinned as a nation! Sadly, because of the evils of feminism, women file for divorce TWICE as much as men. We have spit on you God. It is utter evil. Our lawyers, judges, and politicians are world renowned LAIRS! Our kids are taught that it's ok to lie if they cross their fingers. We are a spiritually sick people.

We are a nation of idolaters, who worship rock stars and entertainers. We ought to fall on our faces before you Lord, and repent of our idolatry. We ought to burn every rock-n-roll recording in existence (and thankfully one day they will be, as you have promised). We are a rock-n-roll nation of fornicators, who have irresponsibly flaunted Your moral laws, and as a result have caused tens-of-millions of unwanted pregnancies. In our wickedness, we have stooped lower-than-low by murdering those same children through abortion. 

Isn't it convenient for us, to be able to just wash our hands of sin, and selfishly move on in our self-righteousness? We have declared it legal to disobey Exodus 20:13... “Thou shalt not kill.” We don't obey You Lord, and I apologize for the sins of my fellow countrymen. We are a nation of blood-thirsty murderers. Abortuaries exist all across America. Our political leaders have the audacity to make pompous speeches, bragging about how America is a nation that values life, when nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it be the terminated life of Terri Schiavo or the lives of the 48,000,000 aborted children—we are a nation of MURDERERS!!! We have defied Your authority God.

Ezra 9:6-7, “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.”

I apologize to you God for the rebellion of the American people, from the United States to the island of Guam (America's furthest east territory), we have embraced sin. Our society is saturated with demonism—from hellish rock music to witchcraft, from rebellious wives to fornication, from feminism to lesbianism, from drunkenness to strip joints, from night clubs to gambling casinos, from immodestly dressed women to pornography—we have sinned against You oh Lord! The television (Hellivision) has become our god

We are not a stupid people Lord, for we have some of the most brilliant minds in the world in our nation; BUT, rather, we are a sinful people, who are willfully ignorant of Your Truths. We are a very foolish people, and a stubborn nation. We deserve judgment, and no blessing whatsoever. How dare any American today ask God to bless America—when we LEGALLY allow pornography, prostitution, rebellious wives, divorce, gambling, drunkenness, abortion, homosexuality, gay-marriages, lesbianism, adultery, fornication, witchcraft, nudity, psychics, Girls Gone Wild, and every other form of SINFUL  imaginable. 

I apologize to you God on behalf of my nation, for we are a sinful people filled with stubborn pride. We are spoiled in America, having an overabundance of food and consumer goods, enjoying your wondrous blessings; YET, we thanklessly call Christmas "X-Mas," and teach our children about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny instead of Jesus. We are a rotten bunch of ingrates in America. 

Jesus healed ten lepers, and only one came back to thank Him (Luke 17:12-18). Americans are amongst the nine lepers, who refuse to thank God for their blessings. We have become a gluttonous people oh Lord, eating like pigs and then searching for a drug to help us lose weight. We spend irresponsibly, and then gamble in an attempt to pay our bills. Instead of living for You Lord, Americans patronize night clubs, bars, and dance halls. We American's are infatuated with Dirty Dancing, Desperate Housewives, and Cheaters. Our TV shows curse You Lord, they make a joke of holiness, and mock the Bible. 

Americans use Your Holy name in vain more than any other nation on earth. Cursing in God's name has become the insignia of Hollywoodmovies, and we are guilty as a nation for supporting such blasphemy (Deuteronomy 5:11). We have treated you like our enemy oh Lord, and we deserve to be punished. Please judge us Lord, for we are a stubborn people blinded by our own sinful pride. Woe unto us Americans! 

Many of our top leaders are members of the demonic Bohemian Grove occult that worships Satan.  This includes Presidents Ronald Reagan and both Bushs. I'm sorry Lord, you deserve better. I apologize that the average believer in America is ignorant of these things, because they are too indifferent to care about the truth. While America's churches are filled Sunday after Sunday with with professed Christians, very few are taking a Biblical stand against evil in this nation. In fact, many of our churches are part of the problem. 

I apologize Lord for these disgraceful churches that are pro-abortion, and proudly march in pro-death rallies. I am so sorry that this church hired an ordained lesbian to be their associate pastor. Evidently insanity has crept into our churches, and is causing professed Christian to act crazy. Here's a pastor who thinks the murdering of 48,000,000 children is a MINOR CONCERN. Repent America!

We have sinned against you God, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Shame on us! I don't dare ask or expect You to bless my nation Lord, for we have abandoned You. God bless America? I think not. We have brought a curse upon ourselves Lord, by our own complacency and love for sin. Woe unto America! Even so come Lord Jesus.


"The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day." —Isaiah 2:11

APPLE OF GOD'S EYE~


When you become born again you are no longer a filthy hell bound sinner saved by grace. You are a precious holy righteous child of God saved by grace because of the imputed righteousness of Christ Jesus who lives in you.

However, a child of God will be known by their hatred for the things God hates (lying, gossip, lust, homosexuality, abortion, gay rights, alcohol, drugs, pornography, hate, pride, self love, self pity, system of religion, system of man, worldly customs, traditions, and pleasures).

They love what God loves (other born again brothers and sisters, God's Word, justice, righteousness, the poor in spirit, the lowly and helpless, the lost and blind, honesty, humbleness, meekness, truth).


Those born of the Spirit need to embrace their new citizenship of God's Kingdom in faith and gratitude to allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in full measure. Stop listening to the devil and his minions. You are the Apple of God's eye and nothing can separate you from the Father. Abide and seek!

OFFEND THEM WITH THE TRUE GOSPEL OR CODDLE THEM WITH LIES



The gospel is offensive! Why? Who wants to hear "*your not good enough?*". Man wants to think there is something good in him to earn salvation. They want to work up their own blood sweat and tears into heaven instead of accepting the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Grace is offensive to those who are perishing. To those who are forever saved and sealed by the Holy Spirit it is a beautiful and joyful blessing! 

Once we are in Christ ALL of our sins, past present and future are forgiven. Unregenerate man hates to hear this!  It's offensive!  But to say anything different is to say that Jesus our Shepherd can't keep track of His sheep, His elect, His own beloved children that God knew before the world was ever created.

When somebody hears the *true* gospel with a heart prepared by God, it should bring him to his knees begging for Jesus to save him because he knows without Jesus he is doomed and hell-bound.

It is ALL Jesus not man. Once God puts His hand on a man or woman they can't help but change from the inside out. If not, then they are not one of His.


Romans 8:9 Romans 8:9 (NKJV)  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now *if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His*

WILL AMERICA EVER REPENT? MATT 10:33



I hear so many Christians claiming America's need of repentance but what does that mean? According to Jesus Christ repentance is turning away from all idolatry, sin, and false gods while turning to the Almighty God in faithful obedience.


What would this look like? Our schools would welcome and insist on daily prayer to God/Jesus Christ without fear of offending anyone. Our government and courtrooms would be governed and lead by God and His Word instead of mans desires and agendas. Gay marriage and abortion would be illegal and viewed as God views it instead of how sinners view it. Our military would not only welcome but demand obedience to Jesus Christ while seeking His will and shunning all man- made gods.


Could this ever happen? Can America as a Nation every repent and turn to faith in God alone? God always has a remnant of faithful followers and they are the only thing holding His judgment of wrath back for a time. Why? Is God is waiting for this remnant to stand in the gap between Himself and men in hopes of one last chance to turn back to Him?


Every true Christian can make a difference in their community by taking a stand for God. If you have kids in school that would be the place to start. When did it become ok to fear the offense of men over fear of offending God?  Days of Noah? Any church who studies the Word of God should know what happens when a nation does this and its time to wake up because judgment is at the door. No military in the world can protect a nation who has forsaken and turned away from God. Are pastors teaching this?


Christians all over the world are being murdered for their faith and it's coming to America. Denying the truth won't make it go away. For our kids sake we better get on our knees and seek God with a humble heart.  I feel God is grieving and angered over America who was once blessed because her leaders faith in God~ yet now our leaders mock Him while condoning and celebrating the things He hates! Don't claim to be a Christian if you fear making a stand against what Jesus would call a rebellious wicked self-righteous stiff-necked generation heading for destruction unless she repents.


Will Christ find faith on earth when He returns? Luke 18:8


The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt , they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1


Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, Reprove a wise man and he will love you. Proverbs 9:8


And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented of the disaster, that he had said that he would bring upon them; and he did it not. Jonah 3:10

But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven. Matt 10:33

BE TRUE TO YOUR CALLING



We are to be true to our calling. Christ calls us each to do the Fathers will in different ways with different gifts. The body of Christ knowing this should never rebuke or judge another because their gift in ministry is different.

Some are watchmen and trumpet blowers, while others are encouragers and prayer worriers. All are important but all different. Some can be seen in the world some are hidden. Ezekeil (my favorite) was forced by God to sit and watch evil and wickedness all around him without saying a word. This made him hard and bitter I'm sure! But God used that build up and put His Word/Spirit into Ezekeil commanding Him to speak hard core truth to the society in which he lived.

Our messages will be different based on our anointing and our place in this world. We should embrace (love) our brethren and their spiritual gifts and never rebuke, judge, belittle or envy them. The enemy loves to cause strife in this way and also loves to keep people blind and ignorant to his tactics and truth being hidden by the media.

God will use His watchmen to warn of truth which to many will cause fear which causes hate. A closed mind is usually due to fear and pride. An open humble mind is wise and open to Spiritual truth and discernment. 


Be true to who you are in Christ. Don't doubt or fear but trust and obey God acknowledging Him always to guide you on your path as a channel to a lost dark deceived world. And don't let the enemy shut you up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FOREIGNER IN A STRANGE LAND~HEBREWS 13:14


Imagine waking up in a strange country where you recognize no one. Walking around you quickly realize they speak a strange language and practice strange customs, traditions, celebrations and worship strange gods. You start to feel very much alone. Ephesians 2:19

Suddenly you come across someone who speaks your language! Come to find out you both share the same citizenship while learning there are others like you scattered across this foreign country. You have all been sent by your Commander in Chief (Jesus) as Ambassadors to warn these people they are living an Imitation of the real True life. 2 Cor. 5:20

You head out on the great commission to speak truth warning these foreigners their country will be destroyed and they must convert to your homeland in order to be saved. Their gods and traditions are not real, there is only One True Way to life and freedom. John 4:16

Although faced with much hate, ridicule, and rejection you remain loyal to your Commander in Chief by speaking Words that the only hope for salvation from destruction is to be willing to forsake all, friends, loved ones, and the comforts of all they know to follow the Way (Christ) to true life instead of this imitation life they have been deceived into believing.

Many are called but few are willing to leave this strange imitation life to become citizens of the only True Way to God's Kingdom life. God is calling many through his Ambassadors today. Willing hearts will hear. Stony hearts will reject. Matthew 13:10-23

THE DAY OF THE LORD~GLORY OR DOOM?



Zephaniah is a very short but great prophetic book in the bible about the Day of the Lord when God brings His judgement upon the entire world. God is going to expose and destroy all hypocrisy and self righteous false religion as well as the complacent, the naysayers, the wicked, and unbelievers. Nothing will be left untouched and there will be no place to hide.

The name Zephaniah means the Lord Hides. Meaning the true house of God  who's hearts have come out of the system of man and religion will have a place of refuge and shelter. Their hearts are being prepared in the refiners fire now (Consecration) for what is to come. 

Believe it or not the world's only hope comes through God's judgement. God is just and will bring justice and restoration.


We can not divert or pray against the world's judgement for it is necessary and certain. However, the anointed have already received God's punishment against their sin through Jesus on the Cross. Those who refuse Christ today will face the wrath to come.


Jesus freed us from condemnation when we abide in Him and are no longer living for the world but forsaking all to follow Him. It is a personal relationship and no religion or good behavior will do. He is our only refuge and hiding place. ASK (Ask. Seek. Knock.) Luke 11:9

The Great Day of the Lord

“I will utterly consume everything
From the face of the land,”
Says the Lord;
“I will consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens,
The fish of the sea,
And the stumbling blocks[a] along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the land,”
Says the Lord.

ALL GLORY TO GOD=HUMBLE SUBMISSION



Fear of loosing ones salvation has created a ring of pride in the christian world today. Fear doubt and unbelief are the devils favorite weapon to paralyze separate and blind God's people for without faith we can not please the Father.  Heb. 3:19 

Salvation is nothing we do but what Jesus has done. God chose us we don't choose God. It is God who sanctifies, consecrates, justifies, and redeems man. The only thing man can do is reject and blasphemy what is given. 

The Holy Spirit will not allow His temple to practice old habits of porn,booze, gossip, lies, slandering brethren etc. but will consume the conscious to hate it as He does.  

It is by the grace of God we are who we are. 1 Cor. 15:10 God will never forsake or abandon His own even if they do fall into sin. Falling and practicing are not the same.

When we become born again we are no longer our own but a new Spiritual creation purchased by the blood of God into His eternal Kingdom family and it will be evident by the separation from this world and Oneness in Christ.  

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

John 10:29  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,


for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

WHY DID JESUS CHRIST COME?





 NOT TO BRING PEACE BUT SALVATION

Jesus came not to bring peace but trouble, a sword of truth.Truth meaning a heart transplant is needed by ALL. Who wants to hear they need to undergo the knife!! Nodody! If Jesus came to bring peace He would tell everyone what they want to hear instead. We're all just fine the way we are……

Jesus knew truth would bring trouble because it's easier for man to accept a lie which keeps him comfortable with no change of heart needed~ than to heed truth which demands a change, a painful separation from the comforts/ways/direction of this world, our friends and family who refuse His truth.

Jesus came not to judge the world but to save the world from the wrath of God. He offers the only Way to freedom and eternal Life. To refuse the way of Christ for the way of the world is to choose eternal damnation and a future of God's wrath to come.

WHO'S REALLY BEHIND THE COMPUTER?


You can tell much about a person by their facebook, google, or other public forum. I've read some pretty strong comments from people who claim to love the Lord and before I respond I like to know who it is I'm responding to so I will check out their page only to find their obsession with Harry Potter, Disney, Hollywood, false religions, and other pagan idols.

God's children wouldn't dream of whoring around with satan's kingdom. To respond to these meaningless comments/rebukes is useless according to God because they are so blinded by their father satan, they will not hear even a word. God tells us to think of His Kingdom things not the worlds things, therefore what consumes the mind speaks volumes of the hearts condition. Careful with who you respond to.  Col. 3:2, Matt. 7:6, Prov. 26:4




**In Gods Kingdom**                                            

Life
Light  
Under God's authority

Lives for present/future

Jesus is their Lord
         




**In Satan's Kingdom**

Death
Dark
under satan's authority
worldly minded
practices idolatry
loves sin
lives in the past
loves the world
self is there god

THE GREATEST AND MOST DENIED MIRACLE OF JESUS


Behind door #1:

A person who grew up in the church, was confirmed in the church, studied theology in college and became a successful well loved pastor.

Behind Door #2:

A person who never grew up in a church family, only visited churches for weddings, funerals, or baptisms, but became born again at age 40.

The person behind door #1 was taught by man and knew the bible extremely well.

The person behind door #2 was taught by the bible's Author and knew Him (Jesus) intimately.

I am that person behind door #2 and I share this as a testimony not to exalt self but to glorify Jesus who still performs miracles today and I'm convinced through much observation that the one and only thing that prevents this miracle is Pride.

The fact that Christ Jesus chooses man as His Holy temple to dwell amazes me. God doesn't need us to do His will on earth. He chooses us. There is nothing more intimate than that.  I in you and you in Me.  John 17:21

WHAT MOTIVATES YOUR HEART IS WHAT YOU WORSHIP



Whatever motivates us is where are hearts are. If our hearts are one with money then money will be our motivator. If we are one with our lover then our lover will be our motivator. If we are one with human approval then popularity will motivate us. If we are one with sexual lust, drugs and alcohol, career and prestige, then these things will be our motivator. God says we can NOT love both, it's one or the other. Matt 15:8, Matt 6:24, Psalm 37:4

When our hearts are One with Christ God becomes our motivator. A temple (man) filled with God will speak God's Word in truth as a sword cuts deep stirring up a man's heart to see his need for Jesus. Many churches (false temples/No Anointing) don't preach truth making conversion impossible because the dire need for a new heart is not seen, known, or accepted.   John 3:3 

Our hearts are dead as stone until Christ dwells and quickens (gives life) a man creating One heart, mind, and Spirit with the living God, Jesus Christ. This new man will be motivated and consumed with God instead of his old ways, desires, habits, dreams, goals, and life. God becomes his everything.   Ezekiel 36:26 Phil 2:2, Gal. 2:20

Want proof of how Spiritually dead and lost this generation is? People label the "born again" as wacko. This means those who have the Creator of life, Jesus Christ, living in them enlightened with the true Way to eternal life are wacko while those who are Spiritually dead and hell- bound are normal?

Satan has the whole world deceived and is loving every rejection of Truth spoken by those wackos which are few and far between. Jeremiah 11:14

TOUGH LOVE ~ HEBREWS 12:11

We've heard the term "tough love" parents use on rebellious teenagers who have fallen into drugs or alcohol abuse. In order to save them from their own destruction they allow consequences for their actions instead of bailing them out. God says we are all rebellious against His ways by nature and that love is an action not an emotion. God is patient, but He will eventually shun those who continue in their disobedience. Rom. 1:28, 2 Thess. 2:11


The world today has changed the definition of love into an emotion of feelings instead of an action of laying ones life down for another. God saves us from our rebellious nature for a reason and it's not to keep quiet, but to enlighten others. It's not just about salvation but a new life after salvation.


Tough love vs. self love. Self love will deny and manipulate the truth of God' Word to prevent ridicule, rejection, and hate from others who chose lies over painful truths. Tough love will never hide truth even if it means loss of reputation, family, friends, and life itself.


Why does Jesus tell us if we love our mother, father, brother, sister, children, and spouse more than Him we are not worthy? It's not to split loved ones apart. It's because He knows if we love anyone more than God we will sacrifice the truth to spare loosing them!


Before a soldier is ready for battle he must experience boot camp. This separation from family and comforts is necessary in order to train for battle. God must do the same with man before he is useable. We must be willing to loose all for the sake of God's Kingdom or we are not worthy to enter into it. Just as Jesus suffered and received His crown so will all the sons/daughters of God.


This life on earth is a blink of an eye compared to eternity. The trials we face now is nothing compared to the eternal paradise of constant beauty, learning, love and glory we will share with our new family and God the Father. Choosing this life over eternity is to trade our birthright for a bowl of soup when we can have a never ending smorgasbord of delights beyond our imaginations!
****************************************************************************
2 Timothy 4:8
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
1 Peter 1:6
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
Luke 17:33
Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.





THE "SELF" IDOL~


The most dangerous idol that leads to all idolatry is SELF. We worship whatever gives "ME" pleasure happiness and gratification. All one has to do is look at Hollywood as evidence that things and money don't bring happiness and contentment because these people are on a never ending search for it while humiliating/destroying themselves and others in the process yet the "world" glorifies and idolizes them for it.

Low self confidence is prideful and exalting self  because when we pity ourselves our focus is more on "self" than God and others while constantly trying to lift up self  through people pleasing or quick fix addictions.(food, shopping, pornography, alcohol, career, gossip, etc)

Psalm 10:4 (KJV)The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.


This is why the cross-less gospel is antichrist because the whole purpose is to crucify SELF and be renewed in Jesus Christ. The devil wants us to stay dead and blind and company him into eternal torture instead of this new life of wisdom, freedom, contentment and peace in Christ. There are no substitutes. Until this new birth we will continue to live idolizing self on a never-ending futile quest for happiness leading straight to hell.

GET WHAT YOU GIVE~


The time and energy we put into our relationships whether it's our marriage, children, co-workers, siblings, friends, we will always:

Reap what we sow…… Get out what we put in.

The same goes for the most important relationship of all:

God & Man

It's easy to tell the difference between latch key/daycare kids vs. those who's mother sacrificed a career for being a stay-at-home mom.

You can tell the quality of a marriage at dinner if the eyes/attention are engaged on their spouse instead of their cell phone, waitress, or the conversation at the table next door.

A boss who treats his/her employees with appreciation and respect will create a pleasant productive atmosphere vs. a walking on egg shells, backbiting staff.

An intimate relationship with God is evident by a persons loyalty to Him, whether swayed to the worlds ways or God's Kingdom ways.

We really can't complain about our marriages, kids, co-workers, or life in general until we start being honest first with ourSELF. Searching truthfully deep within. Are we putting in what we should? Or is our time spent on things instead of people? The created instead of the Creator? 


I believe God hates over- scheduled, hurried, chaotic lives because it takes precious time away from those whom God has entrusted to us, causes impatience exhaustion and bitterness, and then we blame everyone else for the consequences of our actions. Or lack thereof…….

A WISE DOOMSDAY PREPPER~



A WISE doomsday prepper~

Cares more to read the Word of God than the Sports/Entertainment section in newspaper/T.V.

Although very aware of World News/happenings more obsessed with one on one time with Jesus

Cares more to discuss Spiritual things than Worldly things

Asks God for a clean heart daily to prevent any barrier for Holy Spirit Anointing

Sees prayer as the most powerful/reliable source for wireless communication

Gets their house in order Spiritually rather than stocking up on ammo

Seeks the mind of God/Jesus Christ rather than worldly "doomsday preppers"

Trusts God/Jesus Christ will provide and protect in the coming day of disaster

Trusts God no matter what without doubts or fears~

Do not tell me God can't communicate/provide for a man with faith such as this over one who puts faith in himself and things of this world.

THE WAY~


*Mans way or God's Way*

The Early church called followers of Jesus "the Way"

The bait they used was all Jesus & the baptism of the Holy Spirit, not fame fortune entertainment and prosperity.

What would happen if we took one whole day to seek Jesus and Sup with Him?

What if we gave up our computers, our food, our job, and activities for one full day and spent it on our knees with our Lord Jesus?

Praying for the blind to see and the lost to be found

Praying for our Nation to repent and turn back to "The Way."

The Way of Jesus instead of mans/worlds ways.

Man's way goes against God's way naturally

To seek only Jesus

To Sup with only Jesus

To offer Him a contrite heart and poor Spirit

A hunger and thirst to know His mind

God still speaks to those with an ear to hear and a humble heart

Seeking nothing but a willingness to know Him intimately 

This is a man God can use as a channel to the world

These are righteous men/women who's prayers will be heard

This is resting in Jesus and trusting He will lead us where He needs us

Imagine the sweet fragrance a day of prayers by thousands of Spirit filled believers of the Way would drift upward to Heaven!

Would this please God?

Could this cause Him to relent from His judgment of wrath to a nation?

Jonah 3:9 (NKJV)  9 *Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?*

Now reform your ways and your actions and obey the LORD your God. Then the LORD will relent and not bring the disaster he has pronounced against you.

WISE IN YOUR OWN EYES?



The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It's impossible for an unregenerate man/woman to fear the Lord because without being born again they are innately opposed to God and His ways. Job 28:28, Psalm 111:10, Prov. 1:7, Prov. 30:3

Those with the mark of God on their foreheads (minds consumed and yielding to God's Spirit)  are able to fear the Lord. They are much wiser than a Carnal person no matter what title or how many letters follow after their name. Rev. 9:4, Rev. 14:1, Rev. 22:4

Does this mean they are holy, pure, and righteous? Yes. To God they are because they have the imputed righteousness of Christ. Does this mean they never sin? No. The Holy Spirit is continually working within his heart to conform it into His beloved Son Jesus, creating many more sons of God. Phil 2:13, Ephes. 1:5, Hebrews 13:2, Romans 8:1

The wisdom of man/world is utter foolishness compared to the wisdom of God.  In fact He uses the foolish ones of the world to confound the wise of the world. Why? Only a humble heart will God come into. The proud He will not. James 4:6, 1 Cor. 2:14, 1 Cor 1:2, 1 Cor. 1:27

Spirit filled believers (foolish to the world) are often rejected, mocked, and hated when speaking truth about the world and it's God opposing ways. Why? Because they are blind and deceived by the god of this world (satan). God's anointed have the mind of Christ Himself therefore love not the world and it's false religions, cults, traditions etc. Romans 12:2, 1 Cor. 2:16,  John 15:15, 1 John 2:15, 


To argue with a carnal person about Spiritual things is foolish.  Those who refuse to see their own hopeless hell-bound born condition will not come to repentance therefore are rejecting Jesus Christ and an eternal life of freedom.  

Only God can heal the blind and awaken the dead (Spiritual blindness/deadness)  but pride will always be the great barrier. Humble your hearts before God because these He will never refuse or turn away. Prov. 23:9 James 4:10, Matt 23:12, Prov. 3:34

THE CROSS-LESS GOSPEL IS ANTICHRIST~


A person filled with the fire of God's Holy Spirit will be saddened/angry at the world's idolatry and glorification of sin/man.

A person once enlightened by the gospel of Jesus but allowed the cares of this world to choke it out will hate the Fire/Truth of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the One and only God worthy of glorification. When we glorify sin/man=666=antichrist we are enemies to God.

God came in the flesh/Jesus to give us a new citizenship, a new heart and mind, reconciling us back to Himself.  We are to follow Jesus. We are to take up our cross and crucify self (our wills, agendas, and life) to live a new life in Christ.


A cross-less gospel is an antichrist gospel. Without the cross there is no Christ. Without Christ there is no forgiveness but eternal damnation. Stop listening to man and ask and seek Jesus! 


When you give God the crumbs of your time He will give you the same.

WHAT GOD ARE YOU PRAYING TO?


Many people are praying to a false man made god to fit their lifestyle and conform to their needs instead of the One True God of the Bible. This is a dangerous game to play.

Jesus said to deny yourself and follow me. Those who want to stay comfortable in the world will refuse to believe Jesus would say this. Jesus said if you love your life, family, friends, possessions, goals, reputation, dreams, career, etc more than Him you are not worthy. Matt 10:36

How can one do this? They can NOT do this. Only throughout the power of the Holy Spirit is man able to do theses things and to love God above all else. Our natural born state is to hate God, the things of God, and all God's people. The world loves it's own.


1 John 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

We must be born again (Holy Spirit within) to have the desire to speak and proclaim the things of God. The unregenerate will fear ridicule and embarrassment to speak about God to others and will love the world and all it's traditions, customs, and glorification of sin.

Deny the God of the Bible and you are rejecting Jesus Christ. We have nobody but ourselves to blame for our eternal destination. The weeping and gnashing of teeth in hell will be a constant regretful reminder of all God's people trying to warn teach and enlighten out of love which now sounds like hate.  


John 15:18"If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19"If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.

HOPELESS AND HELL-BOUND~



One great debate is whether or not homosexuality is a born trait or learned. It matters not because we are ALL born hopeless and hell-bound which is why we ALL need to be born again with a new Spirit, heart and mind of our Lord and Savior Jesus. John 3:3

To say one is born a sodomite and can't help themselves is choosing to live eternally in hell and denying the free gift of salvation. Choosing death over life. We all must repent. Matt 4:17

Once we accept this and turn to Jesus we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of God and clothed with the righteousness of Christ Jesus. We don't grow into being holy~we ARE holy!! We are no longer labeled filthy sinners but God's precious royal children receiving His never ending mercy!!  1 Peter 2:9

The infant Christ within grows daily by the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit manifesting the fruits/character of God the Father. Babies don't grow into adults overnight~this takes time.

Walking in the Spirit is faith in our new citizenship into God's kingdom, for without faith we can not please God. He is our strength no matter what the devil and his minions throw in our path because there is no good at all in the flesh; therefore nothing the flesh says or does should surprise us.  It is an innate enemy of God and His laws.

It is my belief through much observation that the Holy Spirit can not fully fill, flow, and manifest Himself through a man until the person realizes there is nothing good enough, strong enough, or willing enough to be righteous enough to please God and finally surrenders all of himself to Christ to possess and sanctify him.

GOD HATES EVIL AND SO SHOULD HIS CHILDREN!



It should be no surprise that evil people exist in the world. Although some like to say there is a bit of good in everybody I disagree. Hitler was known to throw great parties but does that cancel out all the evil he did? No, he was pure evil.


Recently we hear about the enemy using humans as shields, even babies. This is evil. But there are evils that we don't read about and are kept in the dark. God commands us to shun ALL evil. Even relatives.


Why would we allow our children access to evil people? Just because we are related? Not according to God. Evil is evil.


A mother who doesn't protect her child from the hands of an evil man (child molestation, abuse, etc.) for her own ill gotten gain is as evil as a devout islamist using a child as a human shield to protect himself. 


Christ Jesus can change the most evil wicked heart into a pure God fearing heart, but until this happens we are to shun them and protect the innocent from the harm they choose to inflict. No more religious card of forgive and forget. Forgive and let go. Unless they repent.
1 kings 3:16-28

FOREVER RIGHTEOUS~






James 5:16King James Version (KJV)
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent *prayer of a righteous man* availeth much.


*We are not to ask the heathen/unconverted,unregenerate, man/woman to pray for us but the righteous alone!*


Romans 3:10New King James Version (NKJV)
10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one;


*But doesn't God say no one is righteous?*


Philippians 3:9King James Version (KJV)
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the *righteousness which is of God by faith*:


*Only those IN CHRIST having been born again in Spirit are righteous in God's eyes. These are the righteous men/women who's prayers are heard by God and can move mountains when done in faith.*


Ecclesiastes 7:20New King James Version (NKJV)
20 For there is not a just man on earth who does good
And does not sin.


*Even King Solomon who God made the wisest man to ever live claimed there is no one who sins not. But God anointed Solomon for His purpose plan and will regardless of his being born from King David and Bathsheba's adulterous affair and regardless of his numerous pagan wives and idolatry*.


Romans 9:15
For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."


*God is in control no matter what man thinks he knows, does, says, and wills. We are not puppets, we have free will, but we are NOT God*.


Matthew 5:6King James Version (KJV)
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.




**Notice God doesn't say SELF righteousness? Only Christ is righteous and only those who's faith is in Jesus Christ will be given the rob of righteousness sealed forever as God's adopted child walking eternally free in Christ**~ John 10:28, John 10:29, John 6:37, John 6:39, 1 Peter 1:5, 1 John 2:25

LOVE GOD HATE EVIL



Love God hate sin. There is no other way.



I hate sin ~ even my own. I think homosexuality is disgusting and I hate it. I think gossip is disgusting and I hate it. I think lying is disgusting and I hate it. I think adultery is disgusting and I hate it. I think backbiting, pride, lust, greed, envy, murder, gluttony, and unbelief in God are all disgusting and I hate all of it.



We can’t single out certain sins and glorify others. The closer we get in our walk with God the more we see our own wretched habitual ingrained learned sin and the more we ask God to purge, pluck, and burn them out of us.



So for those who claim believers hate gays, adulterers, murderers liars etc. it is only because God has opened our eyes to the truth of what He hates even our own sin. It is because we desire those who celebrate and deny their sins to instead acknowledge their sin so God the Father can destroy it and free the person from it. This is the Father’s business Jesus spoke of. Who’s business are you about??

JAMES 2:10 ~JESUS IS OUR ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS~

"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." —James 2:10


       Who's the biggest sinner? I am! You are! We all are! WE HAVE SINNED! Put down your stones you self-righteous hypocrites! It is human nature to look upon the sins and faults of others, while often overlooking our own sins. This is hypocrisy. One of the worst deceptions is overlooking our own faults. The Word of God proclaims in James 2:10 that committing even ONE SIN makes a person GUILTY in God's eyes of breaking every command in the Bible. James 2:10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” This is a startling doctrine that is hardly touched upon in churches today.


If you are a Christian the whole world is waiting for you to fall. Sermon uploads that would change lives are fortunate to receive even a hundred hits; but you upload some juicy gossip about a preacher sinning and millions of people want to know it. This evidences the hypocrisy and desperate wickedness of the human heart, just as Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” If you are truly right with God, then you see yourself as the biggest sinner, because you know yourself better than anyone.


Do you know what a hypocrite is Biblically? It is a person who thinks that someone else is a bigger sinner than them self.



In the eyes of men, murdering someone is obviously worse than stealing their lunch; but as far as God is concerned we are all equally lacking any righteousness of our own. We are each as dirty and rotten as the other guy.

Although we may never commit murder or rob a bank, that does not make us any less guilty of being a horrible sinner in the eyes of God. 


May I say, no matter how righteous I may try to live, the ONLY reason why I will ever be righteous is because of the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ. Jesus paid my sin debt, and He alone is my righteousness. I have no righteousness to offer God, and neither do you.


People tend to selfishly judge themselves based upon what sins they personally DON'T commit. Did you understand that? People who don't commit adultery are quick to condemn others who commit adultery, because that's not their sin. But perhaps they are a thief for a living, and so they are silent when it comes to the sin of theft. This is how shallow, wicked and hypocritical most people are. The Bible perfectly illustrates this in Jesus' account of the Pharisee and the publican who went up to the temple to pray...
“Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted” (Luke 18:10-14).
The Pharisee in Luke 18:10-14 made the grave mistake of comparing himself with other people, instead of measuring himself up against the holy Law of God. If we foolishly look at other people who commit the sins that we don't, or sins that we perceive as being worse than our sins, then we naturally become self-righteousness and think we are “better” than others. I tell you, you are as filthy and rotten as Adolf Hitler in God's eyes, and so am I...
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away” (Isaiah 64:6).
Reproach For Sins Comes Now Or Later
The Bible teaches that some people's sins are open (known) beforehand here on earth. But the Bible teaches that everyone else's sins will follow them and be revealed in eternity, causing shame and reproach...
1st Timothy 5:24, “Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.”
When the truth is known, ALL PEOPLE will be exposed as wicked and shameful sinners. When asked to give the name of the worst and most horrible sinners we know, most people tend to think of people besides them self. This is the hypocritical nature of humanity. This is why all gossip is sinful and wrong, that is, because we are just as sinful as the person that we criticize. Hey, let's talk about our selves instead. All of a sudden no one has anything to say?


          
God's Law indicts all humanity as guilty sinners (Romans 3:19). 1st Timothy 5:24 says that some men's sins are open to criticism and judgment beforehand, but everyone else's sins will be made known eventually on judgment day.

The Bible declares that ALL men have come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The Bible teaches that the Pharisees who condemned others were the guiltiest of all sinners (Matthew 7:1-5). The reason why hypocrites throw rocks at others is because they are proud, arrogant and saturated with sins them self.



Those hypocrites who condemn others for their sins will one day be silenced completely in eternity when THEIR SINS are revealed. Christians who realize their own sinfulness DON'T condemn other people when they sin. Slanderers and critics of sinners are self-righteous, FAILING to see their own depth of sin and evil. Most people have absolutely no idea how sinful they really are in comparison to the holy Bible.


Matthew 7:1-3, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Even the best Christians still have a mote (tiny piece) in their eye, meaning that we are all sinners; but those evil critics who spread gossip, tell tales, condemn others, reveal secrets and hypocritically destroy their neighbor with their mouth have a beam (large piece) in their eye. God's harshest judgment is reserved for those arrogant sinners who condemn other sinners, overlooking their own wickedness in hypocrisy while trying to destroy the good name of others. If the truth be known, we all have a skeleton closet of sins. The Bible says that a person is calling God a liar if they deny their sinfulness (1st John 1:8,10).


We are living in an evil generation that tolerates all manner of sin and wickedness from Hollywood, rock music stars, and their favorite immoral professional athletes; yet, the world is waiting for every Christian to fall flat. Jesus taught in John 15:19 not to marvel if the world hates us as Christians, because the world hated Him first. 2nd Timothy 3:12 foretold that those faithful Christians who live godly in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION. The world hates the Bible and Christians who uphold the truths of the Bible.
 
We Have Sinned
Would to God that Christians in churches today would stop saying, “he has sinned,” and “she has sinned,” and that we'd all start saying, “we have sinned.” It is sinful pride that causes a wife to publicly criticize or divorce her husband. It is sinful pride that causes the manure-spreading newsmedia to mercilessly destroy people's lives. It is sinful pride that causes children to broadcast their parent's dirty laundry to others. It is sinful pride that causes self-righteous hypocrites to meddle in other people's marriages.


The Apostle Paul was a faithful missionary who loved the Lord Jesus Christ and helped people everywhere he went. Paul suffered horribly from shipwreck, hunger, turmoil and malicious beatings from his enemies; yet he kept going for God. Paul was a mighty preacher and a strong Christian. Although Paul was arguably the greatest missionary who ever lived, he still addressed himself as the “chief of sinners.” I don't know too many believers today who are anywhere near as dedicated and committed to Jesus Christ as was Paul. If a good Christian like Paul esteemed himself as the “chief of sinners,” then we ought to feel the same way.
  
Judging Versus Condemning
We must distinguish between condemning someone for their sins versus publicly exposing them because they are a threat to society. I publicly expose abortionists (murderers), homosexuals (sex perverts) and religious deceivers (liars) through my online ministry; but I do not condemn any of them personally.


I am not condemning them; God's Word condemns all of us (Romans 3:19-23). I am as rotten and sinful as the worst sinner. I am not self-righteous; I am trusting upon HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, i.e., the righteousness of Jesus Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:21). I deserve to burn in Hell and **there's absolutely nothing good about me except the Lord Jesus Christ Who lives in my heart, thankfully**.


If a local school has a teacher who is teaching teens how to have homosexual “fist sex,” which is happening today in Massachusetts, then that evil person needs to be exposed. Godless heathens are quick to cry out, “Jesus said, 'judge not lest ye be not judged.' ” They conveniently fail to quote John 7:24 where Jesus stated, “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” So we are supposed to judge, but rightfully so.


Ephesians 5:10-11 reads, “Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” The word “proving” in Ephesians 5:10 is the Greek word (dokimazo) and means “to test.” Thus, God wants us to test everything, to judge righteously, to discern whether or not something is acceptable to Him, i.e., in agreement with His holy Word. Certainly, it is NOT acceptable to teach children that it's ok for Timmy to stick his fist in Johnny's backside as an expression of love. We are living in a sicko society in America. Ephesians 5:11 commands God-fearing believers to reprove [Greek: elencho, i.e., “to expose”] all works of darkness. This is not condemning; but rather, judging righteously as we are supposed to do.

Conclusion
Would to God that more believers today would realize the extent of their wickedness in the eyes of God. We are a sorry bunch. Our only hope is the precious Lord Jesus Christ and the salvation that He freely offers to us, paid for by His own shed blood...
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1st Peter 1:18,19).
If it weren't for the literal precious blood of Jesus Christ, we'd all be doomed to the Lake of Fire. God is a good God... “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Amen!
