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.
