Why are you not vaccinated?

 

Somewhere around 50% of the population only is fully vaccinated. What about the other 50%? Why are they still not vaccinated? Are they scared? Is it a religious thing? Was it their church telling them not to? Is it a health condition? Whatever the case, you are risking it all if you are not vaccinated and put your family and others at risk as well. Is it worth it to you to possibly even DIE for your decision? Will it be worth losing your father, your mother or your children to your decision? Will your decision be worth being cut off from the things you love in the world and in society?  We are to a point where every person will HAVE to choose what rock they will die on. Everyone will find the rock of their security, that they are truly looking for, and die upon it in the end. I hope yours is worth it.

Exposing Saturday worship hypocrisy

Exposing Saturday Worship Hypocrisy

Praise Jesus today brothers and sisters, what I wanted to speak about today is the difference between the true Sabbath found in Jesus Christ and the sabbath that is spoken of throughout the scripture, in the law of Moses, and how it was a shadow picture of what was to come in JESUS.  See, a lot of people today want to be biblical, and they fall into the trap of becoming VERY religious.  I talk to a lot of people who are sabbath day keepers, but when you bring up JESUS, they downplay JESUS, they have NO DESIRE to talk about a living relationship with JESUS CHRIST.  But they love to talk about the LAW, they love to talk about the 10 commandments, the 4th commandment, they love to talk about how the Catholic church changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday and on and on they talk about the Sabbath, but ALL IN VAIN, it’s all part of their religion.

 I want to read to you first what is recoded in Genesis, and this is Genesis chapter 2; “Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished.  And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.  Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”

So we see here in Genesis Chapter 2 that God rested from all His work on the 7th day, and He set this pattern and Moses commanded through God, that all the Israelites keep the Sabbath Day.  As we know, Jesus said later when He came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets… Jesus said this in John Chapter 5… Let me give you a little bit of background, there was a man that He just healed on the Sabbath, He tells him to take up his bed and walk, so all the Jewish people who keep the Law are upset, they are watching this, and whether you agree or disagree that Jesus worked on the sabbath (which of course He did) but if you disagree with that, LISTEN to what Jesus says in regards to the Jews who are persecuting Him for working on the sabbath and breaking God’s law (of Genesis Chapter 2).  John 5:16-18; It says; “For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath.  But Jesus answered them, (and listen to what Jesus says) “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.” 

Jesus just said that from the beginning of time His Father has been working and so has He.  So, the question arises for those people who are trying to keep Saturday as the Sabbath- How in the WORLD can you justify Jesus saying that His Father has been working from the beginning of time, up until the present time, (and Jesus says that HE is also) How do you justify that with the fact that Genesis Chapter 2 says that God RESTED on the Sabbath?  How can you justify that if you believe that Saturday is the fulfillment of the Sabbath?  (And by the way keep in mind that “Saturday” is the false god Saturn that the Romans worshiped…)  SO, how do you justify Saturday, the false god Saturn, being the true day of worship, when Jesus says, that from the beginning of time, you know, from the BEGINNING up until this current time, that His Father in heaven is working AND SO IS HE!?  SO, those Jews understood what Jesus was saying, they understood that He had broken the sabbath, in their perspective.  And look what the Jews do;

“Therefore, the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.” 

So, here you see Jesus BREAKING THE SABBATH, (the religious sabbath, the sabbath that the Jews kept, and the same false ideas of sabbath that the Christians who are upholding DEAD religion keep today.  So, how do we justify the fact that Genesis Chapter 2 says that God rested, and Jesus saying that God has not rested… There is only ONE solution for that, and that is that the TRUE SABBATH is when YOU come into PEACE WITH GOD.  See, 7 represents the day of our salvation, which was through Jesus Christ, and our salvation was set from the foundations of the world, when God created the heavens and the earth and when Jesus made everything both visible and invisible, (Colossians 1:16) both spiritual and physical, He set our salvation from the beginning, that we could be saved, KNOWING that we would need a path to SALVATION (from sin).  And that salvation is through Jesus Christ.  The number of our salvation and our hope is the Sabbath (7) and the fulfillment is JESUS CHRIST, but the shadow picture of that, was keeping the day (as spoken of in Hebrews 10:1 and Colossians 2:17) 

But we know that the TRUE DAY is in JESUS CHRIST, not in keeping a weekday, as the Jews did in times past.

Now I want to read to you about this for those of you who disbelieve this, found in Hebrews chapter 4, we read about this, it says in Hebrews 4:1-10; “Therefore, sins a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear least any of you seem to have come short of it.  For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with FAITH in those who heard it.  For we who have believed DO ENTER THAT REST, as He has said: “So I sword in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest.”

In other words, these Jewish people received the “sabbath”, they received all the law of Moses, but even thought they received the shadow picture of the REST, they rejected JESUS CHRIST who was the fulfillment of the Law AND the Prophets and the 10 Commandments, they rejected them, and so they did NOT come into the true rest.

  “…although the works were finished from the foundation of the word.  For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”, and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”  Since therefore it remains that SOME must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “TODAY, after such a long time, as it has been said: “TODAY, IF YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.”  For if JOSHUA HAD GIVEN THEM REST, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.  There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.  For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works AS GOD DID FROM HIS.”  (LET US THEREFORE BE DILIGENT TO ENTER THAT REST, LEAST ANYONE FALL ACCORDING TO THE SAME EXAMPLE OF DISOBEDIENCE.”)

So, you see, if Joshua or if Moses, through the 10 Commandments, (that God did give him to give) could have achieved rest, just in that day, there would have been no need for the TRUE REST or the FULFILLMENT of the law and the prophets.  There would have been no need of Jesus to come and die for our sins, to resurrect from the dead and to give us the NEW Covenant. 

If you will notice, these religious folks who uphold Saturday, and worship on Saturday, but not on Sunday (Which is hypocrisy in itself, because we can worship God ANY day)  But if you notice, they downplay JESUS, they don’t want to talk about JESUS, they don’t want to talk about HIM as the Sabbath.  They take THAT for granted, and then they go back to talking about their Saturday service, they go back to talking about their religion.  But if they are in the truth, WHY DON’T THEY WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT THE SON OF GOD?  Why don’t they want to talk about the heir of ALL things?  Why do they keep on going back to the Law of Moses and talking about shadow pictures and the 10 Commandments?  If they REALLY honor GOD as the 10 Commandments were given for us to do, why don’t they honor God in the 4th commandment being the FULFILLMENT through JESUS CHRIST?  They downplay Jesus, they reject HIM for the sake of DEAD RELIGION. 

But the reason why Joshua couldn’t have given rest through the laws of the Sabbath is because he was NOT the Savior of the world.  They day was given through Jesus Christ because He is the fulfillment of the DAY, He Himself is the TRUE DAY, not the day of the week, but DAY in the sense that there is DAY and NIGHT.  Jesus is the King of the DAY.  But Satan rules over the dark world, he rules over the NIGHT.  But if we put our faith and our hope and our rest in Jesus Christ THEN WE WILL BE SAVED.

  The Jewish people who have rejected Jesus, although they keep the 10 commandments, although they keep the sabbath, they are rejecting their ONLY HOPE, their salvation in the LORD.  And also many CHRISTIANS are trying to become Jewish, they are trying to take on all the attributes of a Jew, they are trying to learn the ways of Judaism and those Hebrew roots.  And they think that they have an edge on Christianity, they think that they are better than you, and better than me, because they know the scripture.  But the question is DO THEY KNOW JESUS CHRIST? Do they know the HOPE OF THEIR SALVATION?  Do they know the REAL DAY?  Or are they just worshiping Saturn?  Are they worshiping their religion?  Are they worshiping a day of the week?  We need to make sure that we are not sucked into dead religion as MANY of the Jew are and as many Christians are that are trying to become Jews. 

Following Jesus is not about becoming Jewish, it is not about just reading the Hebrew scriptures, its not about just getting to know the “feast days”, it’s not about ANY of that.  It’s about getting to know JESUS CHRIST for real, obeying HIM and living on HIS WORDS.  Do you REALLY know the LORD of the Sabbath?  Do you really know Jesus Christ?  Or have you been duped by dead religion?

Enforce modesty

 

Modesty is not just how you dress but how you present your body, where you look, what you listen to and how you interact with people around you. You cannot be modest and pure if you are listening to ungodly music or wearing tight and revealing clothing. Many sports and athletic events also encourage ungodly music and revealing apparel NOT fit for a child of God. In good conscience I could NEVER let my children be in cheerleading, school volleyball, swimming competitions, competitive track and field events (where tight and revealing clothing is uniform), gymnastics, dance and many other such activities. Children of God are called to be first and foremost HOLY and pure and MODEST with their apparel with their ACTIONS and what they will look upon and listen to. Do not let yourself or your family be polluted by this nudity and the sexualized culture that God HATES. Touch NOTHING that is unclean or God will reject you.

How to overcome sin and cast out demons

 We all know that we get better at what we practice. But also, the things that you practice, you get more of a drive and more of a desire to want to do those things. For example, even if you are pretty in shape but you don't run, you have no desire to run. And maybe the last time you ran was when you were in junior high and in gym class, they made you run a mile and you hate it. Well, you won't enjoy running again until you make yourself get out and run. And the first time you get back to do it, you will probably hate it. But if you continue to practice it, your body will start to want that and then you'll enjoy running, and everything that we practice is like that when you're out of practice, it's something you're not good at it. So naturally you don't want to do it because you know you're bad at it and you're not in the condition to do it. That's why it's really important that we practice the things that we want to get good at and that we practice the things that are beneficial for ourselves, our own bodies and the Kingdom of God. A lot of people are so practiced in the world and they have fed their flesh so much that the only thing that seems desirable to them are things that are sinful. They will ask things like: What do you do if you're not watching TV all day? What do you do if you're not playing video games? What do you do if you're not hanging out with your friends?  And they literally have no idea what the joy of the Lord is. They have no joy in the joy of the Lord. They only take pleasure in junk food and things that are sinful. There is a good reason for that. If you're always eating junk food, if you're, if you're always sitting around watching TV, you'll become more and more accustomed to being lazy and taking naps. Telling people that you're tired, you're become more and more unproductive. But the busier you get in the kingdom of God, the more that you will enjoy encouraging people, speaking the words of life that Jesus has put in you out of your prayer life. The better you'll get at loving others, the better you will become that being patient and kind and you'll be filled with the Holy Spirit, and you will enjoy spending time with the Lord and exercising your spiritual authority in the Lord. The way we overcome sin is by becoming spiritually in shape and the way we do that, of course, is by working on our prayer life, fasting, if that's necessary,  disciplining your spirit to like what is good and to immediately reject what is unholy. A lot of people don't know how to take every thought captive. They think that every thought that comes into their mind, they have to dwell upon. But true meditation of the Lord and of his words come when we meditate on the words of Jesus, and we only let those things into our heart. But we immediately reject things that we know are sinful and of Satan's kingdom. And if we're able to monitor everything that comes into us through our eyes and our ears, if we're able to do that, that is the very beginning of being able to cast out demons and to be purged of sin. It's not because we're something great, but it's because when we draw close to God, he draws close to us and when we resist the devil, he will flee. Now there's a deception that Christians believe that if you just get in the church and read the Bible and start quoting the scripture, you'll be able to overcome sin. And that just isn't true. I grew up knowing the Bible. I grew up quoting the scripture. Yet I was not able to overcome sin with doing that. I know people point out where Jesus speaks scripture to Satan to overcome the devil when he was in the wilderness. But the truth is, Jesus didn't just quote this scripture, guys. He resisted Satan. And I tell people: What if you quote scripture against Satan, but you show the devil you're a hypocrite because you don't practice what you preach? Are you going to overcome Satan? Of course not. If you're saying that sexual immorality is against God, yet you're lusting and you're falling into pornography and falling into these lusts, then you're not going to overcome the devil's power and his authority inside of your soul. He has his grasp on you still. The only way that you're going to overcome demons is by feeding your spiritual man or your spiritual woman and bringing that man or that woman of your flesh all the way to the ground, all the way into the grave. You have to not just emaciated, but you have to push that old person, that old evil personality into the ground. So you have to resist the lust of the flesh, things that you know are sinful and evil, which includes evil music. It includes most all of the media TV, things on your cell phone that are impure. All of these little parasites and addictions that come in from the outside world eliminate those things and and take back your mind in your heart for the Lord, make sure that you really are a pure sanctuary, a true church for the Holy Spirit. And in so doing that, you will draw close to God and there will be no room for Satan. This is what it says in James. I'm going to read from Chapter 4: where the wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desire for pleasure that war in your members? So if you are feeling that you can't overcome your sin, where does that come from? Is it coming from Satan? Ultimately, it's coming from you. It's your desires that you have to overcome. And if you're desiring evil things, it's because you're feeding your evil desire. You're not feeding your spirit. So you lust and you do not have, you murder and covet and you cannot obtain. You fight and you war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. In other words, you're not asking God to feed your spirit man. You're asking Satan to feed your flesh. And that's why people can't overcome their sins. You ask, and you do not receive because you ask amiss that you may spend it on your pleasures. You know, there's a lot of people that only want to overcome their sins to the extent that it will make them better and more acceptable in the world. No one wants to be a drug addict. No one wants to be addicted to anything. People want to look right in the world. And if you're an addict and your teeth are falling out or they're parasites in your life that are keeping you from functioning in society, you know that those things are good. And a lot of people, even in the world, they clearly can see that. But they only want God and faith as much as God will clean them up from those things. But they don't really want the purity of the heart because that is too hard. And so when these people asked to be set free of their demons, they're asking amiss, just like James says, they're asking with impure motives. So you have to ask yourself: Do I really want to be set free from sin because I love Jesus? Do I really love Jesus more than my demons? Do I really desire to lay down my life for the truth in the gospel? Am I willing to give everything up for the sake of Jesus Christ? Or do I just want Jesus to set me free from hell here on this Earth and make me look good so I can go about my own business and my own pleasure on this earth? And you have to get serious with yourself about that question because there's a lot of people that don't care to get right with God. They just want God to fix their life, get them out of addiction, get them money and make them look good in society so that then they can get a foot up in the world. But in the end, both the addict and the person who is functional in society, who is not an addict, they both die alike. And the question will be: Were we right with Jesus Christ? Did Jesus approve of us, or will we be still in sin? And for those of us who want to be right before God, we need to make sure that we're not praying amiss, not praying for our own evil desires. But truly praying with the spirit of God that we may be one with the spirit of God in doing his work. Adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the scripture says in vain, the spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously, but he gives more grace. Therefore, he says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble! If you want to function in society and look good in society, there is a solution. You follow the people that are popular in society. You set up for yourself a few idols. People that you really admire and become just like them. Whatever movie, actor or whatever celebrity, whatever rich person you admire, follow their blog. You know, get on Facebook and follow them. But if you want to become like Jesus, you can't follow the world. If you want to follow Jesus, you have to stop following them. And you have to commit to following Jesus out of your sin, and you have to humble yourself before him as your only teacher, because God will resist you if you are proud and arrogant. And if you're unwilling to humble yourself before the Lord. So here is the way to overcome your sins. Commit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you! Cleanse your hands you sinners and purify your hearts, You double minded. Lament and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and he will lift you up. Many of us are double minded. And the reason why we are double minded is when we are feeding the flesh. As soon as you feed the flesh, you get confused. You start to think, well, it's not that bad to hang out with these people. They're my family members. It's not that bad to and you name it, whatever the sin is, you're falling into. You start to justify because you become double minded by listening to sinners and trying to listen to the Holy Spirit. If you want to really break free from sin, you have to cut off the arm of the flesh, cut off people that are causing you to sin from your life, cut the demons out of your life, cut every venue that those demons are coming to you through. However, Satan is trying to get to you through your eyes or your ears or your friends or your family members, cut Satan out of your life. Draw close to God and he's going to draw close to you and help you, resist Satan, and he's going to flee. It's not an easy task to get right with the Lord Jesus, in fact, it's very difficult. So don't let anyone tell you it's three easy steps. A good word of advice is it will take time, and it's difficult. But with Jesus, it is possible, with you and me it's impossible to overcome. It's impossible to get some demons out of our life. But with Jesus, all things are possible. And if we love Jesus more than we love our sins and darkness and demonic things, the Lord is going to purge us of those demons. He's going to purchase of Sin and he's going to cleanse us, and he's going to reside in us as his true church. And when he does that, there will be no room for the demons to be in us because there's only room for one master at a time. There's only room for the Holy Spirit or room for Satan. So I want to encourage you that you can overcome in the name of Jesus if you want to, but you need to be serious. Stop making excuses. Stop saying that you can't do it. Stop saying that you've prayed and you've tried and it didn't work. Stop saying that you've done so much for God. And what has he ever done for you? I hear these excuses all the time from people, but the truth is they are loving the world and their addictions more than they're loving the Lord. If you love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, all your strength, you will put the flesh to death. You will put the things that are evil in you to death, and you will encourage the light that is in you that Jesus put in you. You will encourage and you will nourish what is good and holy and pure. Remember that whatever, whatever part of you that you feed will grow. If you're feeding the flesh, your flesh will get stronger. If you're feeding the spirit, the spirit will get stronger, so don't feed the flesh. Stop feeding the flesh and 100 percent feed the spirit of God. Spend time in prayer, diligently seek the Lord. Separate yourself from things that cause you to sin. Get those things out of your life. Make sure that you're spending adequate time with the Lord all the time, and that you're not bending to hypocrisy. That you're not falling to evil jokes and evil thoughts and evil desires. Just keep yourself pure in the Lord is going to help you. But if you run with the world and you encourage the flesh, no wonder you can't overcome your sin. So I hope this helps someone to really overcome in the name of Jesus and that you guys will be set free. Jesus wants us set free. He doesn't want us to be condemned to hell. The Lord is on our side. He doesn't wish that anyone in the world perish, but that all come to repentance and that all will be saved.

The deceived chase after signs and blunders

 


The DECEIVED Chase After Signs and Blunders

I want to read to you the great commission that Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 16:14-18; “Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.  And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.  And these signs will follow those who believe:  In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”  These are the things that Jesus spoke, and if you are really with Jesus you WILL SEE His signs and His wonders, they will follow after you, not because power is coming out of us, but because as we follow the Lord Jesus we see HIS work IN OUR LIFE, we see HIM working in the world, and we see Him working in others.  Now, a lot of Christians, they chase after “signs and wonders” and they start whole churches around this, calling themselves “The Christians with signs and wonders following…” and instead of the wonders following THEM as they are seeking the LORD, they are chasing after the wonders.  And they chase after other people who perform signs and wonders.  But a lot of these signs and wonders that Christians are seeking after are FALE signs and wonders and they are deceived.  And it is no wonder that people get deceived when they chase after sensationalism, when they chase after feelings, the pleasures of the flesh….  Jesus didn’t call us to chase after these things, but He said that THEY WOULD FOLLOW US.  If we really are with the Lord we are going to see the work of the Holy Spirit in our life, there will be demons, spiritual snakes, that we will have to attack in the name of Jesus.  We will speak in new tongues, the sick will be healed, people will repent, those things will happen, BUT AS THE LORD JESUS WILLS IT.  Some people are under the impression that they can lay hands on anyone, and that because Jesus says this that they WILL recover immediately.  BUT Jesus didn’t say EVERY single person would recover.  Not every singe person will repent.  BUT we do have to pray for people, and we do have to pray for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

 Now there are some people that, they won’t even allow people to work in their churches (and these churches are false to start with) But they say “You have to speak in tongues, you have to have these signs and wonders…”  And they don’t accept anyone as a true prophet or a man of God unless THEY see these sorts of signs and wonders, and they say; “Why would anyone follow this guy if he is not working signs and wonders and miracles….”  They are looking for something that THEY perceive to be supernatural.  But in regards to this deception, I want to read to you what the people said in regards to JOHN THE BAPTIST, and this is found in…

John 10:40-41; “And He (JESUS) went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and there He stayed.  Then many came to Him and said, “JOHN PREFORMED NO SIGN, but all the things that John spoke about this Man were true.”  And many believed in Him there.”  (many believed in Jesus)

People did not recognize anything supernatural about John the Baptist, he preformed no sign, YET, John “was the greatest born of women”, that is what Jesus said, he was a true prophet of GOD, he spoke the truth, he had the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT in him.  But people saw no sign, they saw no power of God, they saw nothing.  Yet people are willing to run around today and accuse brothers and sisters who ARE following Jesus saying; “They don’t have signs and wonders following THEM…”  But they do accept John the Baptist.  Well, Here is a question for those who are chasing after signs and wonders:  WHAT SIGN OR WONDER DID JOHN PREFORM.  Why did people repent when John the Baptist was baptizing, was it because he parted the Red Sea?  Was it because he was parting the Jordan?  Or was it because he was preaching, “REPENT for the Kingdom of God is at HAND!”, and people were convicted?  Was it because the power of GOD was upon his preaching?  And the power of God was working through him even to baptize Jesus Christ! 

When Jesus is working through someone’s life those people, the person whom the Holy Spirit is working in their life THEY see the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is manifesting in them and through them, but the world CAN’T SEE ANYTHING, the world is blind.  The world was blind to even what Jesus was doing.  The world chose NOT to see His miracles.  And Jesus could not work many miracles in His own town because people rejected Him.  Likewise people did not see what was supernatural with John the Baptist, they didn’t see what looked like a dove descending out of heaven, they didn’t see anything supernatural about Jesus getting baptized, or those people coming out into the wilderness to be baptized by John.  Man can’t see what is happening spiritually in people’s hearts, that is supernatural.  But we are NOT of the world, are we? We are of the Kingdom of God, and if you are REALLY of the Kingdom of God you need SPIRITUAL EYES TO SEE AND YOU NEED SPIRITUAL EARS TO HEAR!  And when you know that you are REALLY seeking after the Lord in spirit and in truth and part of HIS Kingdom that is found in spirit and in truth, THEN you will see the signs following you, not because we are something great in the world, not because we are magicians, not because we are trying to work signs and wonders like a genie or these church leaders who are deriving power from the DEVIL, but because we have spiritual eyes to see what the Holy Spirit is doing IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  Are you really seeking after the Lord Jesus and are signs and wonders following YOU as the Lord Jesus is working in your life, by the power of the Holy Spirit?  Or are you like the false leaders in the church who are seeking after, and chasing after signs and BLUNDERS, deceiving others with WITCHCRAFT?  Make SURE that you are not chasing signs and blunders, but that you are chasing after the gift of the Holy Spirit and that you are chasing after righteousness and holiness.  Make sure that you are really producing GOOD FRUIT, that way signs and wonders will follow YOU.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Jesus brings division not peace with your family

 


Jesus Brings DIVISION Not Peace With Your Family

The words of Jesus should make you fearful, because the things Jesus said are NOT what is taught in church, it is NOT what is taught in the world or in our economy or by your mom or by your dad.  Jesus did not preach “peace for the world” He did not preach “peace for the earth”.  And in fact, Jesus said He would bring a sword, division.  Also the Kingdom of God is now what you think it is, the Kingdom of Heaven is not peace, but the Kingdom of Heaven is DIVISION.  I encourage you to read the parables that Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven, because they are one in the same, and it will surprise you what Jesus taught because He is in stark contradiction to what the churches and the Christians are preaching and teaching today.  These are not my words that I am going to read, but this is coming from Scripture, and the words I am going to read are the words that came out of Jesus’s MOUTH and they are the words that He is also speaking TODAY, not for someone far out in the world, but they are for you and your family and your household.  I’m going to start with what Jesus said in Mathew chapter 10 I’m starting in verse 34-39; “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth.  I did NOT come to bring peace but a sword.  For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.  He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me.  And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.  And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.  He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”  These are the words that are not recorded in church from the pulpits, they are  not taught at large, because for the economy of the world to revolve, it has to revolve around peace, NOT division.  No one is going to pay the bills and make money if this sort of division happens, and no family is going to stay together if this division happens.  Everything will fall apart.  The words of Jesus should make you fearful, you should fall on your face and start PRAYING, because Jesus is NOT who you think He is.  And again these are not my words, but the words of Jesus Christ.  I want to continue to read to you what Jesus says.  Now I read from Luke 12:49-53; “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!  But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!  Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth?  I tell you NOT AT ALL, but rather DIVISION…”

              Have you read these words of Jesus?  These words are severe! And these words are coming to pass AS WE SPEAK RIGHT NOW!

“For from no on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.  Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” 

              These are not my words, these are the words of JESUS.  Has Jesus spoken THESE words into your heart?  And have you let Jesus Christ HIMSELF reveal to you what you need to do about this?  Or have you just written all the words of Jesus off, to listen to the words that you hear the pastor saying?  Are all the words in the bible balanced for you AND MADE NULL by other passages?  Have you disregarded the words of Jesus for your OWN theology, your own mind?  Have you thrown out the truth of Jesus Christ for your own life?  Are you holding onto your own life, or do you really accept the sword that coms from Jesus Christ?  Not the peace.  But do you really accept the sword of the TRUTH?  Lets read on what Jesus says.  And again these are not my words, but these are the words that Jesus spoke.  Now I read from

 

Luke 14:25-33; “Now great multitudes went with Him.  and he turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me and does not HATE his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his won life also, he cannot be My disciple…”

              Have you considered what Jesus means by this?  Or have you just assumed?  Have you had a word from Jesus on this?  Or have you only listened to your own opinion?  Jesus says in verse 27…

  “And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.  For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it- least, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’  Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?  Or else while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.  So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake ALL that he has cannot be My disciple.” 

              The words of Jesus are very severe.  The question is: DO YOU REALLY HEAR JESUS?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Get vaccinated if you want to continue in the world

 



Get Vaccinated If You Want to Continue in the World

Praise Jesus, brothers and sisters, it truly is an amazing time that we are living in.  A time like no other time in history, a time where truly the sheep and the goats are being separated, the wheat and the chaff are being separated and THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND. 

              My family and I live in California, and if you have looked a bit into California, you know the San Andreas goes through California, and it is a earthquake fault line, and that fault line through the San Andreas you can actually hike down into that fault line.  It’s plate tectonics where the earth is moving and shifting.  And you can stand on one side of the chasm and someone else can stand on the other, and it’s probably, from my memory about 50 feet apart from one side to the other.  But I have hiked down into it, and it’s pretty interesting that you can hike down into this fault line in California and you can explore down in there.  But I had this vision of a new fault line that is starting to split, but in this vision there are men who are straddling this fault line, and they have one leg on the left and they have one leg on the right.  And this isn’t just a strike-slip-fault line, but it is one that is separating and getting wider and wider and wider.  And no man in the world could straddle 50 feet or 100 feet, or however wide these fault lines separate.  And eventually 3 things are going to happen:

 1 you are going to go to the left, 2 you are going to go to the right, or 3 you are going to go straight down the middle!  What do you think is going to happen if you go to the left?  If you go to the left you have to fully accept the things of the WORLD.  You will HAVE TO accept the vaccine, that will be the ONLY way.  Your only hope if you want to go to the left and continue in the world is to be vaccinated, that way you can fly, that way you can buy groceries, that way you can continue working a government job or ANY OTHER job.  The ONLY WAY you are going to have hope IN THE WORLD, ON THE LEFT, is to receive the vaccine, THAT is what is going to happen to those that choose the left.  What is going to happen to those that choose the right?  The right are those that choose to put their feet into the Kingdom of God, not one foot, not one hand, but who plant BOTH FEET ON THE RIGHT, who put both feet on the Rock of their salvation.  What is going to happen to them is they will be cut out of the world, they will NOT receive the vaccine, they will not receive any of the provision of the world, but in so doing they will be on the outside of the WORLD, but on the inside to the KINGDOM OF GOD.  Jesus will accept them, but the world will reject them.  Now what will happen to those folks who fall right down the middle?  Because there is a man who has his foot on the left and his foot on the right of that analogous San Andreas fault, and what happens when it separates 50 feet?  Have you ever seen how far you can look down into the San Andreas fault?  It goes quite a ways into the ground.  And I suppose anyone who is straddling over both sides and goes straight down the middle, they’re going to fall all the way into the pit of hell, all the way down into the lava.  When that splits open, if you don’t go to the left or the right, you are going right down the middle!  And that is the FAST TRACK TO HELL!

 Either you are going to the left or the right, or down the middle. The left is the WORLD, and in scripture we are told about this parable (Revelation 13:8-10)  It is the 3, and one of them chooses to willfully bow down, the other chooses to resist, to not go to the left or the right, those people will be killed with the sword. Why are they killed with the sword?  They will be killed with the sword because they have no protection from God and no protection from the world, they are taking the fast track.  That doesn’t mean that you are not going to die if you go to the left or the right, BUT, either you will be on the solid ROCK on the right and you will die for Jesus, or you will die on the wishy-washy round on the left, trying to preserve you life.  But certainly if you are straddled, and today MOST people are straddled right down the middle, they think they can have a foot on one side of the San Andreas, and another foot on the other, and when that thing starts separating and opening up, those people are going to go straight down the middle.  If you think that you can hold onto the world and that you are going to be able to hold onto your guns and prove to the government that you don’t have to take the vaccine, that you can hold onto your job, then you are in for the time of your life, the surprise of your life.  Because God is not going to protect you, your government is not going to protect you, you are going to have absolutely no hope.  The only hope for you if you, if you are running to the left, is to OBEY YOUR GOVERNMENT.  The only hope for you if you are going to the right is to put your faith in Jesus Christ no matter WHAT happens.  But if you have your feet on the left and the right straddled, I think that it’s pretty obvious that you are on the fast track straight to hell.

 I sure hope that you see what is happening.  Remember the parable that Jesus told, I think it’s in Luke chapter 16:1-13, but it’s that parable of the unjust steward.  Jesus spoke in parables so that He would confuse people, do you realize that?  Jesus did NOT speak in parables so that ignorant people would understand.  He spoke in parables so that those that are ignorant willfully can go on in their own ignorance living like the world, living for themselves, and they will never understand the Kingdom of God.  But in the parable of the unjust steward, that guy, the master kicks the guy out of the house, he loses his occupation, no longer can the steward work for the Kingdom of God, no longer can he work for the man that he was a steward for.  So, this guy says, “Well, my master fired me, what should I do?” He says, “My hands are soft, I cant go out into the world and work, I can’t pick op a shovel or use pick, I’ll get blisters on my hands, I’m too lazy to work…”  And he says to himself; “I am too ashamed to beg, I’m not going to sit in the middle of town and beg…” So, what does this guy do?  He says; “I know what I’ll do, I will lie to God’s children, I will tell them, if you owe 100, if you own $100 to God, give God 50, if you owe Him $40 give Him $20…” and so this guy goes around and he becomes accepted by the masters friends, or the ones that owe HIM money, because he cuts the price that the people owe to the master in half.  What did he do?  He lied to people. This guy told people that they could straddle the San Andreas Fault, that they could have a foot on the left and a foot on the right.  And people to this day are still listening to the unjust steward, they think they can enter the Kingdom of God and they think they can enter the kingdom of the world.  What does Jesus say at the end of this parable?  He says NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS.  You cannot serve God and Mammon.  Either you will hate one and love the other, you will be loyal to one and disregard the other.  You cannot serve both God and the provisions of this world.  Mammon is the name of a DEMON; it is the beast.  Mammon is not just money guys!  What do you think Mammon is?  Mammon is putting your foot on the left and your foot on the right, thinking that you are not going to fall straight into the pit of hell.

 I sure hope that you see what is happening.  Remember the parable that Jesus told, I think it’s in Luke chapter 16:1-13, but it’s that parable of the unjust steward.  Jesus spoke in parables so that He would confuse people, do you realize that?  Jesus did NOT speak in parables so that ignorant people would understand.  He spoke in parables so that those that are ignorant willfully can go on in their own ignorance living like the world, living for themselves, and they will never understand the Kingdom of God.  But in the parable of the unjust steward, that guy, the master kicks the guy out of the house, he loses his occupation, no longer can the steward work for the Kingdom of God, no longer can he work for the man that he was a steward for.  So, this guy says, “Well, my master fired me, what should I do?” He says, “My hands are soft, I cant go out into the world and work, I can’t pick op a shovel or use pick, I’ll get blisters on my hands, I’m too lazy to work…”  And he says to himself; “I am too ashamed to beg, I’m not going to sit in the middle of town and beg…” So, what does this guy do?  He says; “I know what I’ll do, I will lie to God’s children, I will tell them, if you owe 100, if you own $100 to God, give God 50, if you owe Him $40 give Him $20…” and so this guy goes around and he becomes accepted by the masters friends, or the ones that owe HIM money, because he cuts the price that the people owe to the master in half.  What did he do?  He lied to people.

 A lot of Christians they don’t WANT to go to the left, they don’t WANT to get the vaccine, “I’ll NEVER take the vaccine.”  They say; “I’ll resist that to the DEATH!”  they say.  They are very belligerent.  But at the same time they will NEVER go fully to the RIGHT.  So, where they are stuck is straight straddling the middle.  But what did Jesus say about that?  “NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS, you will either love GOD or you will love Mammon. Either you will love God and you will HATE Mammon or you will hate God and you will love Mammon.  And today Jesus Christ is separating you.  Either you are going to be completely separated from the Kingdom of God, and you will fully go off and you will do whatever you have to do to be on the LEFT.  Or you will fully separate and do whatever you have to do TO YOUR DEATH to be on the right!  Because if you are still straddling right now you are falling straight to hell, and that is the absolute fastest way to hell.  You cannot serve both God and Mammon.  Read that parable of Jesus and understand it, because the sheep are being separated from the goals, the wheat is being separated from the tares and those bundles are being bundled right as we speak.  The good fish are being brought in, but the bad are being tossed out.  The good are beign brought into the barns, but the bad are being bundled to be burned.  What do you think being burned means? What do you think being on the outside means?  What do you think happens to those 5 foolish who were left on the outside?  The came knocking on the door and the Lord says; “Away from Me, you who commit iniquity, I do not know you… The door is shut…”  These are people who did have a lamp, maybe at one point they did have some oil, but because they cannot hear from Jesus Christ THEY ARE LOST (they can hear everyone speaking ABOUT the oil, they hear people speaking about the Holy Spirit)  Maybe you are here today right now and you hear me speaking about God  and about Jesus Christ and about salvation, but you haven’t heard from Jesus Christ for YOURSELF, well YOU ARE IN TROUBLE!  Hearing another brother or sister is not the same as having oil that sustains you in to the inside of the gates.  You are going to be left on the outside where it is dark and you’re going to be shut OUT by God.  The foolish virgins, they did hear the wise, they did listen to them TO AN EXTENT, but they never put their feet where their heart was, they never obeyed, they never went to go REVEIVE The oil of the Holy Spirit so their lamps could be full.  What DID they do?  They ran around trying to listen to every other wise virgin, they listen to all the pastors, they gleaned all the information from their scriptures, they thought they could enter into the Kingdom of God with their lamps BUT WITH NO OIL! 

              This is the message to the wise; YOU NEED TO BE HEARING FROM JESUS CHRIST FOR YOURSEF. And you either need to go to the left or the right, because the other option is the fast track down to hell. (not to say the left will preserve you either) Are you really hearing from Jesus for yourself?  Or are you hearing from people on the internet?  Are you hearing all the books you are reading?  Are you just hearing the news, the media, the TV, your cell-phone, all the paranoia that is across the world?  Or have you TRULY got to a place where you YOURSELF ae hearing from YOUR CREATOR, the One who created YOUR spiritual ears to hear HIM?  Jesus loves you.  He wants a personal relationship with YOU.  He doesn’t want a relationship with me through you, or some pastor with you, or some middle man then to you, Jesus Christ wants a relationship RIGHT WITH YOU, and that is why the separation is happening.  You get to know Jesus and find your salvation in HIM, or the only other hope/expectation is to go down the middle or to the left (no hope at all).  What will you choose?  Will you choose Jesus Christ or the world?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Covid-19 is real and can kill you even if you don't think so

 


Covid-19 is REAL and Can KILL You Even if You Don’t Think So

Coronavirus is real and can KILL YOU.  It doesn’t matter if you are Republican or Democrat, it doesn’t matter if you are for or against mask mandates and social distancing, staying “6” feet apart.  It doesn’t matter if you are for or against vaccinations.  You can be a hard-core antivaxer and you could STILL die from Covid-19 BECAUSE THE VIRUS DOES NOT CARE.  The only thing within this WORLD that can help preserve you, is if you take the vaccine and if you socially distance.  A lot of people that preach the message that we should eliminate mandates, they resisted the government, they resisted getting vaccinated, a LOT of them have die ALREADY.  They were the voice of one saying; “This isn’t dangerous, don’t believe it, it’s all a conspiracy, don’t worry, you don’t need to wear a mask, you don’t need to worry when you go into the store, just be around other people, you don’t need to be vaccinated…”  And THOSE EXACT PEOPLE are the ones who are DYING now!  And many MORE of them will die who tried resisting the government who was trying to HELP THE WORLD!  But you already know these things if you are not with your head stuck in the sand like the conspiracy theorists, who are trying to resist THEIR OWN government.  The only hope for you in this whole WORLD, if you want to continue to achieve WORLDLY things, all the things that bring pleasure to men upon the WORLD, YOU HAVE TO OBEY YOUR GOVERNMENT, you have to socially distance, only go back to work and go back to the stores when the government tells you.  You need to OBEY THEM, because if you don’t it’s VERY likely that YOU WILL DIE OF COVID-19.  The only hope though OUTSIDE OF THIS WORLD, if you want to preserve your SOUL, IS IN JESUS CHRIST.  You cannot preserve your soul by doing ANYTHING IN THE WORLD!  And you will LOSE YOUR SOUL BY LIVING UNGODY AND WORLDLY.  Don’t think that Covid-19 is a scam or fake or not real, because it doesn’t matter what we think, A VIRUS WILL KILL YOU NO MATTER WHAT SIDE YOU ARE ON.  In the WORLD your only hope is to get the vaccine, and to socially distance.  But outside of this world in the Kingdom of God you’re hope is in JESUS CHRIST!  Will you put your faith in Jesus Christ and COME OUT OF THE WORLD?  Or will you obey the WORLD?  If you reject the commands of the WORLD you will die!  BUT IF YOU REJECT THE KINGDOM OF GOD, LIKEWISE YOU WILL ALSO DIE!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Sin won't take care of itself

 


Sin Won’t Take Care of Itself

You have probably heard Christians say before that they’re covered with the blood of Jesus and because they repented and that the blood covers over their sin in the past, in the present and in the future.  They will also preach at you if you get to talking about sin and true repentance that NO ONE actually really repents, they just say that you kind of get better, you know, you slowly progressively get better at following Jesus if you try, BUT NO ONE WILL STOP SINNING.  The truth is that kind of mentality keeps people thinking it’s okay to sin.  But whatever your sin is, I encourage you to PUT A NAME ON IT.  If it is addiction, call it what it is, if it is lust call it what it is.  The problem with modern day Christians is they call it all sorts of things that it is not, they all it “adult content”, they all it “art”, they call it “hobbies”,  they call it “recreation”.  But these things are SINS and take people to hell.  One thing that was on my mind this morning is how SIN DOES NOT TAKE CARE OF ITSELF. If you think it’s going to be Jesus’ job to do it’s never going to happen, because it is YOUR responsibility to stop sinning.  Jesus already did His work, He did His work on this earth.  It is true that He is still working in people’s lives that want to repent, but He will never clean up your life without you lifting your finger.  I’ve been to people’s houses before and probably so have you, that they are just the kind of people that leave trash everywhere.  They have old broken down cars from who knows how long ago, all kinds of pieces of junk, just thinks that they should have taken to the dump years ago,  and you walk to their house one day and you see that trash, and you think, “That needs to be picked up”  and you come back later 5 years later, and you see all that same trash in the exact same spot, no one has touched it;  the wind storm didn’t take it away,  the rain didn’t take it away, the snow didn’t take it away, the neighbor didn’t take it away.  ALL that that trash that was there for 5 or 10 or 20 years ago is STILL sitting in the EXACT SAME SPOT!  Why is that?  It was NOT Jesus’s responsibility to pick up that trash.  You can’t call on His blood, you can’t say, “Jesus paid it all” All that trash is STILL SITTING THERE because YOU, as the property owner didn’t pick it up!  And sin is the exact same way.  Sin is going to stay right in your heart, right where it’s at, unless YOU take the proactive steps to get it out.  Jesus will help you, and without Jesus’ help it is impossible to stop sinning, but with GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, and He will make the way for you to clean up your house, to clean up your life, to get all the trash to the dump and buried, taken away from you as far as the depths of the sea is, as far as the east is from the west.  He will easily clean up your life if you let Him.  But if you don’ allow Him to start purging you and getting those sins and addictions and just the things that are pornographic and wicked and lustful, if you don’t let Him purge those things OUT of you, IT’S NOT GOING TO COME OUF YOU BY JUST BELIEVING THAT YOU ARE SAVED AND BELIEVING THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN AND UNDER GRACE.  A lot of Christians never fall under grace because they NEVER REPENT, they think that God is blind and He is going to let them into heaven with all their sins because of His great grace.  It is wonderful that Jesus is gracious, He has great grace on all of us,  but a lot of people just deplete grace, they don’t want to repent, they don’t want to get the lustful thoughts out of their mind, all they want is God’s forgiveness while they are STILL IN THEIR SINS, and that is a big problem because God knows your heart and He will  still send you to hell if you haven’t picked up your life, your property, your house.  With Jesus it is possible to stop sinning, you can repent, you can ask for help.  If those property owners with all the trash on their property wanted help they could higher someone or they could find a neighbor or they could ask their own family to help and people would help them pick everything up.  There would be people willing to have a trailer, make a day of it, take all of that stuff to dump.  But the reason why all of these things aren’t being fixed is because trash doesn’t just disappear.  And sin doesn’t just go away naturally either.  You have to be proactive, you have to walk out the door on your own too feet and start moving your hands, start using your muscles, work as hard as you can.  And spiritually it’s the exact same thing, you need to start working for Jesus.  Don’t listen to the people that say you can’t work for God because it’s salvation by works.  JESUS HAS CREATED YOU FOR GOOD WORKS.  He has created you in a way that there is a path that you need to walk.  You need to overcome the old life, all the sins and all the problems of the world.  And He will give you the strength to overcome and He will give you the works of righteousness that come from His Holy Spirit, but it will be work, it will be difficult, but with God all things are possible.  So, I encourage you as your brother in the Lord to do something GOOD.  Do something good in Jesus Christ, ask Him to give you the power to overcome, stop going the way of the evil one and just saying it’s okay because God is gracious.  A lot of Christians are in hell today because they believed in God’s grace, but they didn’t believe in His judgment and His justice.  Why do we thing think that Jesus says to MANY people; “Away from Me you who sin I do not know you.”?  and that they were the one who were casting out demons even? They may have been healing the sick, preaching sermons, knowing the truth… These people went to hell because they never overcame, they never asked Jesus help to clean up their life, they didn’t allow themselves to be purged and made clean and made new.  But if we bring ourselves humbly before Jesus Christ and say, “Please clean up my life, I can’t do it on my own, please help me…”  He will start helping us, He will purge us and clean us.  And that’s what we want because no one is going to enter His kingdom with dirt and filth and trash.  So, do whatever it takes to get sin and parasites, lust OUT of your life. DO whatever it takes, ask the Lord Jesus to purify you.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ isn't cheap like the pastor's sermons

 


The Gospel of Jesus Christ isn’t Cheap like the Pastor’s Sermons

The true gospel of Jesus is not cheap.  Jesus Christ requires all of you, 100%.  But the Christians and the pastors and the churches today are making a cheap easy gospel, they say; “Just say a prayer, you’ll go to heaven, just pay your tithe, just believe that you are saved…”  And they lie to hundreds and millions of people and they are taking people to HELL.  They themselves are not saved because they are not daily denying themselves, taking up their cross, they haven’t counted the cost.  Remember that Jesus said, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.  Jesus also said that he who seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but he who loses his life for My sake and the gospel will save it.  But the Christians in the churches are just making a cheap gospel, they have become like merchants selling merchandise, selling bibles, selling curriculum, they sell their church as if it’s a brand.  And they think it’s about being cool.  But following Jesus is about listening to His voice, getting to know Him for real and surrendering to Him EVERY SINGLE DAY.  I want to tell you this parable because it is a parable from Jesus, but I want you to see what Jesus was actually speaking about (because many pastors have twisted this parable).  The parable goes like this:

              There was a rich man and he had a manager to manage all of his money, all of his goods, and as it comes out this manager is mismanaging his money so he gets fired.  The manager says, “I don’t have hands that can work with a shovel or with a pick, I can’t work with my hands, you know I’ll get blisters…” and then he says; “I can’t beg, I’ll be ashamed…”  So, what does the guy do?  He says; “I know what I’ll do, I will go to all of those that owe my master money and say, hey, I  know you owe 100 but just pay 50, I know you owe 100 but just give 80…” or in modern day times; “I know you owe 100 but just give 10, give 10% you’ll be saved…”  So what happens at the end of the day is his master comments him, but his master does not commend his because he has done good for his kingdom, but because he has shrewdly like a serpent in the devils kingdom, he is winning many souls to hell.  If the children of God were half as prudent as the children of saatan, maybe they would hear the truth of God and really repent, maybe they would really become productive, maybe they would really start denying themselves and fishing for men for real.  But because they are following the (advice) of this this bad steward they are all going to hell.  This steward who just says to people; “Just pay 80, just pay 50, just pay 10…”  that represents a pastor or a Christian who is fallen from grace, he’s been FIRED by God but he thinks he is still in business because he’s going to his master’s clients.  And that is what many pastors as Christians are doing today.  They don’t tell people that GOD HAS FIRED THEM, they start churches and they go around telling people; “Hey, all you have to do is pay 10% you’ll be alight, all you have to do is repent 80% of the way, you’ll be there, you’ll make it into heaven…”  Or they say; “You think that God requires that you actually stop sinning?  Don’t worry about it, as long as your trying 50%, you’ll be alright, you’ll make it…” So, they like to people about what repentance really means, and because people believe their lies as a lying steward, they take ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE TO HELL.  What if these guys repented? Or what if someone came out of this deception and started exposing it?  MANY PEOPLE MAY COME TO GOD!  Many people may really repent and receive the true gospel that isn’t cheap!  The pastors today have cheapened the gospel, just like this guy in Luke chapter 16:1-13 did.    This guy does NOT represent someone who is wise with money, he represents someone who is going behind his masters back and lying to people about how they can pay off the master.  If God says you owe 100 YOU NEEED TO PAY 100!  100 is 100% of your life.  Remember that Jesus said that whoever of you does not forsake ALL THAT HE HAS, ALL IS 100, he said YOU CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE!  If you are only giving 80 or 50 or let alone 10 you will not enter the Kingdom of God.  You need to be serving God with EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.  I notice today that the whole world is all about how good you look in the world, you know, how much money you make, how well you are making it in the world, how you are providing, and it’s really deceptive because a lot of Christians have fully bought into this principle of the world, doing good to others, but only as far as it means doing business.  They will never stand up for what Jesus really meant because they don’t want to be ashamed for Him, they don’t want to offend people, so they constantly lie to people, they don’t have a real backbone.  And they ack just like the guy that Jesus spoke of in Luke chapter 16, that shrewd manager that told people that they could just give 10 or 50 or 80%.  But that is cheapening the gospel.  I encourage you to REJECT the easy FAKE grace gospel.  Reject the gospel that is coming out of the churches, that is that you only have to give 10% or 50 0r 80.  Reject the false Christians the false church.  Reject the messages that come from the pulpit.  Receive the truth of Jesus Christ that is COUNT THE COST, start really praying, listen to the LORD and obey every single word HE speaks.  Because after all those who do not forsake ALL that they have will not enter the Kingdom of God.  Are you daily seeking after the Lord Jesus?  Are you honoring Him with everything?  Or have you believed the pastors and the lying Christians that have cheapened the gospel, to tickle the ears of its members? May the grace of Jesus be with those who truly repent and seek the LORD!

 

Prepared to endure to the very end not to be raptured

 


Prepare to Endure to the END not to be Raptured

As disciples of Jesus we really have to set it in our heart that no matter what we are going to go with Jesus, whether we live or die, that we are going to endure with Him to the VERY END.  One doctrine that is deceptive that is in the church is the “rapture” doctrine, because the rapture teaches people that they won’t have to endure to the end and they won’t have to face the big tribulation, but they will be “snatched out” of tribulation.  Wouldn’t you figure that all of these people, every single one of these teachers that are teaching on the rapture believes that they THEMSELVES are going to be raptured?  I can’t imagine that ANYONE preaching the rapture doctrine believes that they themselves are going to die just a normal physical death, but that a future generation, say in 10 years or 100 years, that they are going to be raptured.  The reason why you start to hold onto the rapture doctrine and preach it is you believe that you and YOUR generation are going to be raptured if you are faithful.  But the truth is, every single group of people that believed in the rapture doctrine and taught the rapture doctrine (in the past), they have all died of natural causes, they have all die without seeing a rapture.

Jesus did not promise His children, His disciples that they would be raptured out of the tribulation, but I want to read to you what He did say in Matthew chapter 24:4-14; “And Jesus answered and said to them “Take heed that no one deceives you.  For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.  “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.  See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but THE END IS NOT YET.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.  Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.”

              “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  Then many false prophets will arise up and deceive many, and because lawlessness will abound, the love of may will grow cold.  BUT HE WHO ENDURES TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” 

              So, verse 9 where Jesus says; “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you…”, where were these guys rapture?  I’m sure that these Christians also could have expected a rapture, if they listened to the teachings of the church that is.  But the words of JESUS are the words of LIFE and whether we live or die we have to endure with Jesus to the very end and live on HIS words.  We have to prepare to live and die for Jesus Christ, to live for HIM no matter what, and to die (being in HIM) when the time comes. 

              I encourage you to prepare to endure to the VERY END, that nothing will discourage you and that if 5 more years go by and there is no rapture that you are not discouraged thinking; “Where is the return of the LORD?”  Jesus is coming for each of us, but that end will come at a different time, you will die at a different time then I will.  But when we come to our end, that is the moment we will meet Jesus, when we stand before Him when we die and come before the LORD.  Will we be prepared?  Jesus didn’t promise that we are going to escape our own death or that a certain generation wasn’t going to have to physically die.  But it is appointed for every single man and woman to die, and after that the judgment.  (Hebrews 9:27-28) Will we be prepared to stand before the LORD, will He say; “Good and well done My faithful servant…”?

 I want to read to you in Revelation also about the Christians who endured to the end who put it in their hearts and minds to endure through trials and tribulations, even the great tribulation.  This is revelation chapter 6:9-11; “When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.” 

These guys were giving GOD GLORY, they endured with Jesus to the END, and when they asked the LORD how long until our blood is avenged, the Lord did NOT say; “Until I rapture the rest of your fellow brethren, those fellow brothers and sisters on the earth.”  He said UNTIL THE ARE KILLED AS YOU ARE!  What we are told by the words of Jesus is that we will very likely die for our faith, we will either die or we will have to endure to the very end and die of some physical (nature) ailment, that could be old age, or maybe imprisonment, we don’t know how the end of our own life will occur, but we do know that we will suffer through trials and tribulations.  And will we be willing to follow Jesus even knowing that?  Knowing that if Jesus suffered on the cross and died, that we are not greater than our master Jesus Christ, if they hated Him and killed Him, they will also hate us and kill us?  Will we continue to follow Jesus knowing that we don’t have a rapture, that we will not escape trials and tribulations, but that we will have to endure with Jesus no matter what? 

If you set it in your heart and mind now that no matter what you will endure even to your own death, then nothing will disappoint you, because you will receive your reward in JESUS and nothing will take that away from you, when hard times come you will know that you already set it in your heart and mind to endure no matter what.  Nothing will be able to stop you because Jesus is with you and you know the end goal.  But if you set your end goal as the rapture, that you will escape trials and escape the tribulation, then when tribulation comes you will feel let down, you will feel cheated, you will feel; “Where is my rapture?  Where is my Lord?”  You will keep looking up hoping that He will rapture you and then you will feel disappointed when it comes to the end of your life and there was NO RAPTURE! 

Will we be the ones prepared, who are ready to endure to the VERY END?  Remember there are people coming out of the tribulation, there are even more who will come out of the tribulation but they have to come out as all of those who are killed for their faith.  Will we endure to the very end with Jesus?  Will we be truly prepared ready to live for Him and die for Him no matter what?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Get out of the adulterous churches

 


Get Out of the Adulterous Churches

What a beautiful day it is today to be surrendered to Jesus, to be following Him and to know HIM as our LORD and as our GOD.  You know, I don’t follow churches but something came up today that I saw on Hillsong Church, and as many of you may already know, the things that have transpired over the last 6 months or so show the truth, the evidence, that Hillsong church IS NOT OF GOD, that the pastors there are caught in adultery, they guy is cheating on his wife, it’s no surprise because these churches are full of sinners who refuse to repent, full of sinners who go to church but they don’t want the truth of JESUS. 

              We are not called to look like the world, to do worship like the churches, pretending that they are following God as rock stars and celebrities.  Jesus did not call us to go out and look cool, to attract people by gimmicks.  Jesus called us to be HOLY to be separate from the world and to make disciples!  How do we make disciples if we ourselves are not fishers of men?  Many of these pastors are just gurus who are deceiving people, they are like snakes, they want people’s money, that’s why they want people to get into their church to be paying that 10%, they want people to worship THEM as God, they want women to think that they are really special so they have even more worship and adoration to themselves.  This is absolute wickedness and it’s no surprise at all that these churches, when the truth is revealed, when the light comes on, that they are all as cockroaches running to hide. 

              Jesus calls us to the holy life and He calls us to lay down our life and count the cost to discipleship.  I want to read to you what Jesus said that we need to do in order to enter His Kingdom, and this is what they are not preaching in church, because if they were telling people to do this, they wouldn’t have people inside the walls of the church.  This is Luke chapter 14:26-33 and these are the words of Jesus;

              “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.”

              What does Jesus mean by that?  Well, this has become evident in my own family.  My grandfather was a pastor, he was a Christian, he had children, children of his own and he loved them more than God, he wanted people to worship him as the Jesus man.  And every single reunion and every single time we got together it had to be all about him and his faith.  He wasn’t pointing people to Jesus, he wasn’t loving the LORD FIRST, he was loving his wife, his children MORE than God.  And if we REALLY love the LORD OUR GOD FIRST we will be humble before HIM, our own family may THINK THAT WE HATE THEM, not because we hate their spirits/souls, but because we love JESUS before ANYTHING and we will not compromise to ANYTHING!

              “And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.  Or which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it- lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’  Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?  Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.  So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.”

              That is the requirement to be a disciple and that is the requirement in order to follow JESUS and enter into everlasting life.  You have to forsake all.  That means, family, friends, your worldly business… Are we forsaking everything to follow Jesus or are we trying to just have Jesus on the side?  I know some brothers who believe themselves to be Christians, brothers in the LORD, but they are very concerned about how they look to the church, to the world, they think that they have to be really cool, they think they will attract people by how cool they are.  But Jesus did NOT call us to go out with these gimmicks, with cool guitar, cool riffs, cool clothes, looking attractive or looking “sexy”.  He calls us to put on purity and righteousness, HUMILITY and to make DISCIPLES IN THAT MANNER! 

              No wonder that these churches are making snakes, no wonder that it comes out that they are in adultery cheating on their wives, no wonder.  They have not counted the cost or laid down their life for the LORD, rather they love themselves, they love their family, they love their friends, but they don’t love Jesus Christ with ALL their heart.  If you really love Jesus first, you would obey these words; “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters and his OWN life cannot be MY disciples…”  YOU WOULD LIVE BY THOSE WORDS, that would be beating in your blood, that would be your lifeline! 

              Christians today have sold out to the world, there is no difference between the world and Christians in church, but if you want to know the truth, you have to start…READ THE WORDS OF JESUS, KNOW THOSE WORDS, HIDE THEM IN YOUR HEART, START OBEYING THEM.  Pray and seek Jesus, say; “Open my ears to the truth, open my eyes so that I can see You, I need to know the truth because YOU are the one who gives me life…”  If you want life you have to stop going to people and start going to Jesus.  Have we really counted the cost or do we think that we are going to buy our way into heaven by giving 10% to the poor or to a church, by doing mission trips, by doing one or two times to church a week, by getting our family plugged into an organization?  Do we think that we are going to achieve eternal life by dead religion? 

              Look at what the disciples did?  If anything else, just compare how the disciples lived to what the church looks like today.  You know the disciples all got themselves killed, for just preaching Jesus and living on HIS word?  You know they DIED for their faith?  They weren’t fooling around trying to look cool, they knew that only Jesus had the words of LIFE and without HIM they were dead men.  They were willing to lay down their lives for the truth because they saw into the kingdom of God and knew that there was LIFE IN THE WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST!

              The church today hasn’t seen Jesus, they think life is in the PROGRAM, they think life is in the RITUALS, they think life is in the book, but they refuse to come to Jesus Christ that they may actually be saved.   Don’t fall into these traps of hypocrisy.  Don’t go to church, don’t be part with them, it’s coming out even more clear every day how full these churches are of snakes and demons and hated birds.  Will YOU get YOUR life in order?  Will you start praying, living according to your conscience?  Or are you going to die in your sins. 

              This battle of Armageddon is happening everywhere in the whole world and YOU are a soldier.  You are either a soldier on the side of TRUTH or on the side of DARKNESS.  You are either an agent of light or of evil.  And you are going to have to ask yourself, are you a double agent, that has deceived even yourself and deceiving others?  Or do you KNOW the God that you serve, have you counted the cost, do you know what God requires?  And have you chosen in your heart to live for Jesus Christ every day and to die to your sins, your flesh.  And on that day that the Lord calls you to will you literally die for HIM?  Are you dying to your flesh today?  We have to just set in our hearts that no matter what, whether we live or die that we will live for JESUS because only HE has the words of life and only HE can say; “Good and well done My faithful servant, enter into My kingdom…”  He has the power to save us or do damn us.  I encourage you as your brother in the LORD, GET TO KNOW JESUS FOR REAL, get out of the churches, stop doing their false worship that God hates!  Start worshiping God with your LIFE, with your actions.  Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, be baptized in water if you haven’t yet, start following in the ways of the Spirit of GOD and you will have LIFE, but reject Him, go the way of Justin Bieber or go the way of these celebrities and you will certainly perish.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.
