The True Rapture

 

The True Rapture

Praise Jesus today everyone.  The last couple days I was praying and talking to Jesus about some questions I had in regarding the gathering together of the saints in the air.  And this “snatching up”, or this “being taken up”.  And I did a bit of research on this, because we know that the word “rapture” isn’t in the Bible, but that idea certainly IS in the Bible, it is a Scriptural teaching about the rapture.  But a lot of the teachings around the rapture that the Christian church has taught are very VERY poor, for example, the Christian church teaches; “Just believe in the rapture and you won’t have to go through great tribulation, you will be snatched out BEFORE this time period…”  And we know that Jesus didn’t teach that, for example, if you look at Matthew chapter 24, you see Jesus talking about the great tribulation, if you look at verse 21 Jesus says; “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time nor EVER shall be, and unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days will be shortened.”  So, you hear about the elect and these days being shortened and the tribulation, so then the question is for a lot of people; “Well, WHEN are we going to go up and be with the LORD?”  And what Jesus says about this in verse 29 is; “Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it’s light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heaven’s will be shaken…”  So, it’s directly AFTER the tribulation that these things are happening.  “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with POWER and great glory.  And He will send His angels with a sound of a great trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heaven to the other.”  So, this gathering together, or this being “caught up” together, when the angels are gathering everyone is NOT BEFORE the tribulation, but if you look at verse 29 immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days.  See, all of these tribulations and trials that happen in the world, happen for our refinement, for the purification of Jesus’s Church, you and I absolutely WILL go through great tribulation, NONE of us are going to escape trials and tribulations and great tribulation on the earth, ALL of us go through that.  So, this belief that the Christian church has been teaching, that we will not suffer persecution, that we will not go through trials and tribulations, that we will be caught up, that we will be saved from that, IS ALL A LIE. 

But what we WILL be taken away from IS THE JUDGMMENT OF GOD THAT HAPPENS NEXT.  After we have been taken out of the world and the Holy Spirit retracted from the world, the world is NOT going through trials and tribulations anymore that just happen by men or their persecution (men inflicted grief) But what the world will experience is the hand of GOD’S judgment, and it’s NOT for the sake of refining His Church anymore but it is for judgment and punishment for sinners who refuse to REPENT!  And at this period of time there will be NO MORE CHANCES for ANYONE to repent on the earth.  When all the true saints have been pulled up to heaven, the world will mourn, they will see the sign of the Son of God coming on the clouds with POWER and great GLORY, and they will have NO MORE opportunity to repent or confess their sins, they will KNOW that they are the damned, exactly like how all of those who were shut out of Noah’s Ark were mourning when they were drowning.  They were probably saying; “Please give us another chance God.”  But there was no more chance or opportunity for salvation.  The night had already come, the rain was coming down and the floods coming up and the whole world was drowned, ALL of them died in the flood.  And the same thing is going to happen again, but it will be with FIRE.  We need to be prepared because the door (to life eternal) is closing.   I want to share with you a few things that the Lord showed me while praying about the rapture, and one of them is, interestingly enough, the meaning of the word “RAPTURE”, if you look this up, the Greek idea of rapture, what it means is “We are taken away” or “We are caught up”.  And this idea of being TAKEN, it reminds us when Jesus speaks about the end, He  speaks about this in Matthew chapter 24, when He says; “Two men will be in a field, one will be TAKEN, and the other left, two women will be grinding at the mill, one will be TAKEN, the other will be left…”  And I prayed about this and I said; “Lord, where are they being taken to, I don’t care where in the world this is happening, I know it is world wide…”  And the Holy Spirit of God showed me that this is the exact same question that Jesus’s disciples were asking, and I had never thought of it like that, because I had always thought that the disciples were asking; “Where Lord, where will this take place.”  But the disciples were actually asking; “Where are these people being taken TO?”  And here’s the really interesting part of this, when Jesus gives His answer to His disciples to where they are taken, it is a twofold riddle, and depending on which way you take it or which side you are on, BOTH are the right interpretation.  So, if these people that Jesus is talking about, when He’s answering their question of WHERE ARE THEY TAKEN TO, if they are taken into judgment, if they are being taken to HELL, like how all of those who missed the Arc were TAKEN in judgment, they were TAKEN away, they were TAKEN by the storm, so if these people that Jesus was speaking about were being taken away into HELL, then they are not just a body, but they are a corpse, and a corpse has a very negative connotation, it’s NOT the Body of Christ, but it is a DEAD BODY, and some interpretations are written that Jesus said that; “Where the corpse lies, there the vultures will be gathered.”  A vulture also has a very negative implication spiritually.  A vulture represents a demon, it represents death.  And so, if you are being taken in judgment, and you are asking “WHERE LORD?” Or where are this people being taken?  THEN, they are being taken in judgment, and they are taking your dead corpse to HELL, vultures representing demos, demons are allowed to feast on your flesh and to take you to judgment, take you to hell.  BUT, on the flip side of this riddle, if they are being taken into everlasting life, and the question is; “Where are they taken.”, then they are being taken as a BODY, which is the Body of Christ, and they are being taken on the wings of the Eagle up to the cloud of witnesses, which is in the heavens.  So, whichever way you interpret this is going to be right.  But it is hinged upon whether you are part of the Body of Christ or the body of Satan, the body of the WORLD.  So Jesus gives this riddle in a twofold manner that it can mean two things and it is BOTH where ALL the world will end IN THE END.  Either we will be on the cloud of witnesses that will be with Jesus Christ for ever and ever, caught up to be with Him, or we will be taken down to Hell, into judgment for all eternity, that was supposed to be for Satan and his angels/demons.                              We’re going to spend either eternity in heaven or in hell.  And we have to choose to go with Jesus into everlasting life.  I know there are a lot of deceptions about the rapture.  People think that you have to believe in a pretribulation rapture, that you have to believe that Jesus is going to snatch you up before things get really bad on this earth, and if you don’t believe that then you won’t be raptured.  But Jesus never spoke about that, and He never expected us to understand His whole plan or to understand all doctrines perfectly.  But Jesus is always looking at our hearts, and if our hearts are prepared, if we have made our hearts and pure before the Lord, because HE is purifying us and putting on our white garments, then whenever He calls, we will be prepared.  A lot of people will not be prepared, but they have been putting their faith in the rapture and they will go their entire life, up to their death, and when Jesus comes, when they go to meet Jesus, He will say to them; “Away from Me, you who commit iniquity, I don’t know you.”  And they NOT have been prepared to meet the Lord.  But I want to be prepared to meet Jesus, I want Him to say; “Good and well done my faithful servant…”  I want to enter into His presence with thanksgiving.                                                                                                                     One of my other questions about the rapture that I was praying about to the Lord is; “How is it the Apostle Paul spoke about souls sleeping.”  Because I know that souls don’t soul sleep, and this is evident by when Jesus was speaking about how God is the God of the living, not the God of the dead, and also many saints have seen the afterlife and came back to report how they saw people there; such people as King David, other great men of faith and even their own family members in heaven.  They are not “soul sleeping” in the ground waiting around for the rapture.  But if you read the Apostle Paul’s words you may come to the conclusion that all the people of old, up from the point of time that Jesus resurrected from the dead, up to the present time, that all of the dead are sleeping, meaning that they are just dead in the earth, and then on the final day, on the final judgment, Jesus blows a trumpet, and the dead in Christ rise first, then AFTER the dead in Christ rise THEN we also will hear that trumpet and go up to heaven.  So, I was praying about this; “How Lord, can the Apostle Paul say this, because I know people are already in heave, those who have died in Christ are not just soul sleeping, waiting for the rapture, they are already in heaven with YOU.”   And the Lord showed me that the reason why these souls proceed us, or they go up first is because they have gone BEFORE us, they have DIED before us.  See, all the people who went before us in the faith, such as my mom who was a believer, who went to be with the Lord, all of these people had their rapture, or their GATHERING up, their snatching up to heaven before we have.  And they certainly will NOT be waiting in the dirt for their rapture until we have.  If I die today, and the Lord snatches me up and I am brought before Him, I can know that my mom is already in heaven, and that those who have deceased in their physical bodies before me, are not just waiting dead in the earth, but they are already WITH THE LORD.  So, every single person who is caught up or raptured, IT HAPPENS AT THEIR FINAL BREATH.  From our perspective it looks like nothing’s happening, no one’s being raptured, nothing supernatural is happening, in our perspective people have been dying for thousands of years.  We have to remember that from God’s perspective 1000 years is like a day.  And all these things have been happening in seconds for Him.  So in God’s view, or when He tries to explain the snatching up or a rapture, or a gathering of the Church, a gathering of His saints, how it appears to us is; “All of this must be happening at the same time…”  And then if you have seen Hollywood’s rendition of the rapture, it looks like everyone just goes up to heaven all at the exact same time, when the trumpet blows, but from God’s perspective IT IS happening pretty much at the same time, but from OUR perspective, this whole thing, this rapture of the church, has been taking 2000 YEARS!  You know, my mom died 5, 6 years ago, and other brothers in the faith have died 10, 20, 50, 80 years ago, but their rapture, or their snatching up to the Lord to be in the cloud of witnesses happened at THAT period of time.  And even if you look at the pictures of pictures of people being raptured, if you look at people’s renditions that believe it all happens at the same time, you will notice that there are souls higher UP in the air, and there are souls lower down that are JUST leaving the earth.  Now if it all happed at EXACTLY at the same time, then all the souls should be at the same altitude.  But the fact that there are some souls higher than other souls indicates that those souls that are higher left their bodies earlier than those souls that are lower down. (Indicating a progression of departures throughout time) 

              In our perspective of things, we can interpret everything to be natural; people have just been dying, no one’s been raptured, nothing supernatural is happening.  BUT ONE DAY we are going to see from the Lord’s perspective, if we are worthy to enter into His Kingdom.  And we will see that all these things that we were doing, if we were doing them in the Spirit of GOD, were supernatural.  We will see things not in this dim mirror that we see them now, but we will see them from our Father’s perspective.  And the big problem that Christianity has right now is that they are not looking from GOD’S perspective, they are looking from Hollywood’s perspective.  And they are looking from the perspective of all these false prophets, who are soothsayers, who are preaching sensationalism, who are making people have FALSE hopes, thinking that they don’t have to endure with Jesus or go through trials and tribulations to the end, they have put all their hope in this FALSE image of Jesus and all this false interpretation of the bible.  But if we want to see from God’s perspective, then we just have to pray and say; “Lord, show me what these things mean, help me to understand who you are, I want to see from GOD’S perspective.  I don’t want to see from men’s perspective or my own interpretation of the Scripture, I want to see what is actually happening.  YOU are the Truth, YOU are the Way, YOU are the Life!”  And if we start to make JESUS our Teacher, if we start to make His Spirit our guide, then He will lead us in the truth, we won’t be deceived by people’s ideas of the rapture, or their ideas about what will happen next. 

              I know on the internet right now there are a lot of speculation when the rapture will take place, people are saying that the antichrist or the man of perdition will be revealed in a few years, I don’t know I think they are saying 2025 or something, and then then think 3 years after that will be the rapture of the church, and they make all of these assumptive ideas based on other people’s knowledge of supposed revelations and they think they have the plan of God figured out.  Gut that’s not how it works.  No one can be able to foil God’s plan.  If people could understand God’s plan, then certainly Satan would have been able to understand it, and certainly Satan would have been able then to foil God’s plan, he would have been able to kill Jesus, he would have been able to find the Virgin Mary and destroy her before, but as it happened, EVEN THOUGH there was all these prophecies about where Jesus would be born and WHEN He would be born and HOW it would take place, NO ONE was able to foil God’s plan, all of those who were trying to kill the baby Jesus, NONE of them was able to kill Him, He was protected by GOD, and GO FIGURE, that GOD is MORE powerful than Satan and NONE of us know His plan.  We will not be able to predict the future using prophecies, we will not be able to navigate our life or other people’s lives into eternity just using Scriptures or trying to figure out how all of this stuff will take place.  BUT, if we are just HUMBLE before God and just say; “Jesus, I  trust you, I want to hold your hand and go with you, I don’t understand what is going to take place, I don’t understand all these prophecies, but I do TRUST YOU LORD.  And I do give you my LIFE.  Everything that I am, I want to be a vessel to be used by YOU, I TUST YOU, I trust your plan, I trust your way, and I will walk with you, even if I don’t understand because I know that your plan for me is BEST.”  If we can be as Children, walking with HIM, then He will lead us and guide us into EVERLASTING LIFE, and we won’t have to be worried about what people think or worried about navigating into eternity by just reading more and more commentaries and more books and listening to what prophets will predict with the next wave of (I don’t know), covid or the next war or the next famine upon earth or the next prophet that comes out.  We WON’T have to be worried anymore about that stuff.  A relationship with Jesus is about walking with Him, and trusting Him. Walking by faith, not by sight, every single day.  Every single day denying ourselves, picking up our cross and going with Him by FAITH.  And if we live by FAITH then step by step we grow spiritually.  The Lord gives us revelation as we walk with Him.  And when we trust Him and He knows that we trust Him, then He feeds us more of His truth, He gives us more of His awesome revelation.  And then we can encourage others because we are being fed by the LIFE GIVER, not just by some regurgitated information from a pastor or some old information from a bible study.                                                                               So, I want to encourage you that the rapture is real, it doesn’t happen as the Christian church is preaching, but THERE IS A SNATCHING UP, THERE IS A GATHERING of the saint, there is a cloud of witnesses.  We WILL go be with the LORD in the SKY like the eagle, we will raise up like the wings of the eagle, we are the BODY OF CHRIST and we are the ones who are God’s Elect, IF we choose to stay with Him and hold His hand to the VERY END.  But those Christians who feel entitled, that feel like they are the ones who are going to be raptured, not you, that they will be sucked out of persecution, trials and tribulations, they are going to have the scare of their life when they are LEFT BEHIND, when they stand at the door knocking saying; “Lord OPEN TO US!”  and they are SHUT OUT and the Lord says to them; GO AWAY, I DON’T KNOW YOU, you who commit sin and commit iniquity. It’s not about believing certain doctrines that the church has taught, it’s not about being “right”, but it’s about who we FOLLOW.  It is about following and knowing Jesus Christ, being led by His Holy Spirit.  And if we are led by Him, even if we don’t understand perfectly, even if our ideas of the Bible are a little bit off, it doesn’t matter because Jesus is leading us, He will correct us, HE will discipline us AND HE WILL LEAD US INTO EVERLASTING LIFE. 

              So, don’t be discouraged by people’s ideas of the rapture, their different interpretations.  Don’t be discouraged by any of that, but rather keep your eyes on Jesus, knowing that He will lead us and guide us.  He is the one that knows His plan, we don’t have to know it.  We have to TRUST HIM and hold HIS hand to the VERY END!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

One will be taken and one left

Two men will be working in the field, one will be taken the other will be left. Two women will be working to prepare food, one will be taken the other will be left. Two will be driving together in their car down the road, one will be taken, the other left. They will be taken unexpectedly and they will NOT be prepared! Be warned, because the thief comes in the night and many will not be ready. If you have not been taken yet, you still have time to repent, but your time is running out. Learn from those who have already been taken into judgment. 

Father Son and Holy Spirit are One

 It is written about Jesus Christ that His name is Wonderful,  Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Jesus Christ is our Father. Jesus also has a Father, and HE is GOD. Jesus said nothing on His own authority, but what the Holy Spirit gave Him to say and He was constantly guided by His Father in Heaven. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are One. When we were created, we were created in the image of God. He created us with a physical body, soul and spirit (mind/personality). Because you can think abstractly, does that mean that you are not connected to your physicality directly?  Is your physical body a different person than your soul? Can you differentiate and divide soul from spirit?  If we cannot understand how we are three in one and yet directly related, how do we suppose we can understand God?

The one thing governments do quickly

 

The One Thing Governments Do Quickly

Governments whether they are big or small, whether we are talking about a local church government or we are talking about a governing body of a country, they all have one thing in common, and that is they are very quick to set themselves up against God. (Read 1 Samuel 8) They make themselves as if they are God, they seat themselves in the place of Moses (Matt. 23:2) And they are ready to lord their authority over you and ALL of their subjects.  In the Kingdom of God it is not like that; (Matthew 23:8-12) In the Kingdom of God all of us are brothers and sisters, we are humble before our LORD and we have One Teacher and ONE leader, and One King and that is JESUS CHRIST!  What kingdom are you part of?  What flag do you fly?  Do you fly the flag of your government, your church?  Do you belong to your government or your church?  Or do you really belong to the Kingdom of God?  Do you belong to JESUS CHRIST?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Bible lovers Jesus haters

 Following Jesus Christ is not about "following the Bible", but about following the Holy Spirit. There is a BIG difference. Many Christians follow the Bible and love to talk about the scriptures and how biblical their church is. The Pharisees also loved to speak about their scriptures and their organization. They were the same ones that had Jesus put up on the cross crying out, "CRUCIFY HIM, CRUCIFY HIM!!!"

Speak in tongues

 

It is good to speak in tongues, whatever the tongue may be, a prayer language, a tongue not known by men, prophecy, interpretation etc...GRANTED it is truly of the Holy Spirit and not something else. How do you know the difference for SURE? Well, that is entirely hinged upon your heart and which S(s)pirit you are connected to. There is no praying in tongues "wrong" or accidentally to Satan, IF in your heart of hearts you are worshiping the Spirit of God. But many Christians are deceived and let their heart LIE to them. These foolish Christians chase after sensationalism, feelings and what appears spiritual before MEN. They want to impress others with their spirituality and have a spirit of manipulation and are also manipulated. The important thing is to be VERY serious to check your own heart and make sure that you are actually going after the Holy Spirit, not something else. Be honest with yourself and be honest with God.

Christian Witchcraft is real (false tongues)

Not everyone who has been baptized (or baptizes others) and "speaks in tongues" really is following the Holy Spirit. Many people receive a sort of, so called "kundalini" spirit and manifest bizarre speach (Exp: shdahalalalalalalalal.... this is not an angelic tongue but hypnotic), movements, attitudes and emotions that they CALL the Holy Spirit. Be warned that this sort of stuff is a witchcraft. (Also note that SOME Christians using this witchcraft and this sort of tongue know EXACTLY what they are doing and are purposely out to put you in a trance to control you.) Many Christians fall for this because these sorts of Christians are generally very charismatic, likable and outgoing. Often they do "faith healings" and miraculous signs seem to happen through them. They also promise others that if they are baptized by THEM, they will also receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit with tongues. Do NOT be duped by their witchcraft. It will be exposed soon enough that this is NOT of God. Don't set yourself up to look extremely foolish by associating with these people. The TRUE Spirit of God is the Spirit of complete self-control. The true Spirit of God is the Spirit of revelation, CLARITY and comfort! NOT confusion, awkwardness and bizarre manifestations.

Reason why the pastor's kids are on drugs and suicidal

 


Reason Why the Pastor’s Kids are on Drugs and Suicidal 

There is a reason why the pastor’s kids are committing suicide and why the Christian celebrities’ children are on drugs and killing themselves.  You can look at pastors such as rick Warren who had a son that some years ago committed suicide.  And there are other famous people such as the rapper TobyMac, who recently his son overdosed on drugs, fentanyl.  The reason why is because pastor’s kids, even if they don’t know it are growing up in hypocrisy.  AND HYPOCRISY DIRECTLY LEADS TO DEPRESSION! And there is no one more hypocritical than someone such as a pastor, a preacher or a Christian who abandons their own family, doesn’t raise them for GOD, but “does ministry” and appears good before A LARGE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE.  I grew up Christian.  I grew up seeing the hypocrisy in church, and I myself also became a hypocrite pastor.  This climaxed in my life when I was in college and I found myself with two different lives.  I had the life at church on Wednesday and on Sunday, where I would pull myself together, pull a sermon together, and I would preach and appear godly, and a LOT of people looked up to me!  And I had my OTHER life at college where I was hanging out with women, I was going out with people, going to the bars, and this double lifestyle that I started to live more and MORE got me into a depression.  And the interesting is, at the time, I couldn’t even put my thumb on WHY I was depressed!  I didn’t even REALIZE I was living a double life!  I knew it, I think at TIMES, but it was easy just to forget about.  Now from my perspective outside, and hind-sight, seeing all of this from the future from then, it is SO OBVIOUS that I was living as a hypocrite, so obvious that the hypocrisy itself was leading me to depression.  But in the time I just thought; “I’m having fun in college, having fun with girls, having fun playing shows, going out to bars, and then I just have to pull myself together on Sunday to appear good to the people at church…”  It was a very weird thing to be a part of and Satan totally blinded me to that.  It wasn’t that I just though; “I’m going to deceive people in church, I’m going to be a hypocrite…”  I just simply WAS a hypocrite and I was extremely depressed.  During this time Satan would put all kinds of things in my mind.  I was so depressed, that certain women that I was with even would bring it up, they could tell that I was depressed… It took me a LONG time to come out of that, to actually get right with God, to surrender my life FULLY to the HOLY SPIRIT.  But now that Jesus has restored me, pulled me away from the hypocritical church system, pulled me away from being a lying pastor, NOW I can stand up and expose what is going on, and I can tell you, the pastors kids are going to be the MOST depressed children of ANYBODY, even more than atheist’s kids, more than other religion’s kids.  The pastor’s sons and daughters are going to commit suicide, they will be on drugs, they will overdose and they will die.  They will be the first ones that are found DEAD along the freeways!  They are the ones who have seen the truth of G(g)od and they have realized that it is all a game.  They may not even know that hypocrisy is what led them to depression, BUT IT DID!  I encourage you to GET OUT OF CHURCH.  Get OUT of hypocrisy.  Don’t listen to the pastors.  Don’t bring your family into the doors of the church.  IT WILL LEAD YOU TO HELL.   Separate yourself from hypocrisy, otherwise it will lead you to depression and it will lead your children to hell.  There is a VERY specific reason WHY the pastor’s kids are committing suicide and the celebrities sons and daughters are overdosing on drugs.  Don’t follow them.  DON’T BE A PART OF THE CHURCH CULTURE!  Separate yourselves, sever yourself AND your family.  Otherwise, you will also follow them to hell.  OBEY Jesus Christ, live by HIS words and TOTALLY come OUT of the leaven of hypocrisy.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

If you don't accept their sin don't accept their concern

 Often Christians keep an open ear to criticism from others, even if they KNOW those other people are in sin. The devil tells them if they don't listen they're prideful. That is a bunch of nonsense and manipulation.  If you don't accept someone's SIN, dont accept their CONCERN for your life!

Salvation by Belief ALONE is a lie

Salvation by Belief Alone IS A LIE

Praise Jesus today everyone, it truly is a blessing to find our life in Jesus Christ, to find our happiness in Him, to find ourselves completely in His love.  What I wanted to talk about for a minute here is how we are saved and our salvation.  I remember when I was first coming to Jesus I had this dream, and I had it in a few different variations, but it had to do with this young boy who was walking on the edge of a cliff, and on the bottom of the cliff was just jagged, or rather it was just basically death to fall off the cliff. But as this boy walked along the edge of this cliff he realized that he kind of had a super-power, that he could fall off the edge of the cliff and be protected, GOD would protect him. (Luke 4:12/Deuteronomy 6:16 Don’t Put the Lord your God to the test.) And in my dream he fell a few times (or jumped intentionally) and he had a bubble of protection and when he fell he bounced to the bottom of the cliff but he was not mortally wounded, he may have been injured to some extent but he did not die. But another time he fell and he broke bones and then I see him again another time and he is all mangled up.  And in this dream, when I was first coming to the Holy Spirit and understanding our salvation, the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about what our salvation was like.

 When we walk on our path with the Lord, we stumble, we fall, and the Lord has grace on us, because He loves us and does not wish that even one of us fall into hell.  But as we continue down that road and if we are PLAYING GAMES WITH GOD (watch the video here), and if we are purposely jumping off the cliff, and we continue to say; “Well, GOD will save us, His hedge of protection, the hedge of His Holy Spirit will still be around me… I know that I’m entitle to go to heaven!”  and we have that kind of attitude, that we believe that we are entitled to heaven no matter WHAT (like Once Saved Always Saved doctrine), then we will keep on falling, but eventually we will end up FALLING TO OUR DEATH.  Jesus Christ is ALIVE and His Holy Spirit KNOWS EACH OF US INTIMATELY.  He sees the bottom of our heart.  He sees what is in the SOUL of a man, and He divides between bone and marrow, soul and spirit (like Hebrews 4:12 says) He KNOWS WHO YOU ARE in your CORE, YOU CAN’T FOOL HIM.  A lot of Christians are playing dangerous games with God.  They continue to fall off the cliff, because they go, “I’ve fell off before, God picked me up, I had the hedge of protection, God is grace, God is love…”  And they are right, but at some point, GRACE RUNS OUT, and that is why many people are actually in HELL who WERE CHRISTIANS!  You have to ask yourself, why is ANYONE in HELL if that God loved?  Why did He allow them to go there if God is love?  And the answer is, there is a certain amount of time that we can walk with the LORD, reconcile with HIM, WORK OUT OUR SALVATION WITH HIM, and be SAVED! (Read John 11:9) There is a certain amount of time that we can repent and show by our works (like James 2:24-26 states) that we are in LOVE with Jesus Christ and mean business with HIM. (Like John said to the Jews in Matthew 3:8 to show fruit worthy of repentance)

 People go around saying that salvation is NOT by works, it’s not by holiness and righteousness, it’s not by the things we do.  And it’s true in the sense that by our OWN works alone we are not saved, BUT if we truly are with JESUS CHRIST, His HOLY SPIRIT IS IN US and He puts His Spirit of truth and RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS in us, and without those things in us WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE SAVED.  (As written in Hebrews 12:14) You cannot enter into God’s Holy Kingdom without righteousness inside of you.  (Compare Matt 6:33 with Matt 22:12)  If you continue to say; “I am saved, I am entitled to heaven…”  One day you are going to FALL and you will be as someone TESTING THE LORD, and you are gong to fall down that cliff, you are going to hit the bottom, you are going to break bones, maybe YOU WILL DIE, then you will stand before a HOLY GOD and we KNOW that God will say to MANY who believed that they were saved, Christians who cast out demons, who healed people in Jesus’s name… He will say to them; “Away from Me I NEVER KNEW YOU, YOU WORKERS OF INIQUITY!” (Matthew 7:31-23) Many Christians will say; “But that wasn’t me Lord, I had faith in you, I trusted you, I believed in YOU!  ISN’T BELIEF ENOUGH???  Isn’t it enough to believe, I know John 3:16, I know the verses that say BY FAITH WE ARE SAVED, NOT BY WORKS SO NO ONE CAN BOAST, LORD, I HAVE YOU IN MY HEART!!!”  Jesus will say to these people; “Away from Me, you who commit iniquity!  I don’t know you!”  That is an example of GOD’S GRACE NOT BEING GIVEN TO SOMEONE.  That is a VERY scary thing. God is extremely gracious; He loves every single one of us.  He sent His Son to die for the iniquity of the WORLD (John 3:16) that each of us can repent. (Acts 2:38) But if we continue to turn our backs on God and play games with God, and say it in our hearts; “I’m entitled to heaven, no matter what I do, God can’t love me any more or any less, I’m going to heaven, I can’t doubt my salvation…”  That’s a VERY DANGEROUS place to be as a brother or sister in the LORD.

 Now on the flipside of this, Satan is ALWAYS condemning the Children of God.  Satan is always saying things like; “Well, you messed up, now you are going to hell…”  Satan is the accuser of the brethren (Revelation 12:10) he accuses brothers and sisters in the Lord, day and night, he says; “You messed up, now you are going to hell…”  That is also a lie from satan, because God’s grace DOES cover over us when we sin, BUT WE HAVE TO REPENT FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEART.  Remember how Jesus taught the disciples when they asked; “How many times should we forgive? Should we forgive up to 7 times?” (Matthew 18:21-22)  Jesus did not say just forgive them 7 times and then tell them to go to hell, and Jesus doesn’t tell people to go to hell after 7 times either, but He says 70 times 7.  Jesus was not talking about what 70 times 7 is actually is mathematically, but perpetually if someone actually askes for forgiveness from their HEART. (Read Luke 17:1-4 for more clarity)

 The KEY here is DO WE MEAN BUSINESS WITH GOD from the bottom of our heart?  Or are we playing games with God, believing that we are entitled, that no harm will ever come to us, that we can walk on the edge of the cliff (that is on the border of sin) and that God will always have his hedge of protection around us.  Do we believe we are not going to hell just because we said a prayer when we were 8 years old?

 The entitled mentality and that easy grace mentality that we don’t have to do anything is also a lie from satan.  BOTH sides of this spectrum, the easy grace/ hyper grace and then also this condemnation side, that you are going to hell no matter what, BOTH sides of that are demonic.   True salvation is found in Jesus Christ when you mean business with Him from the bottom of your heart, when you are praying and you say; “Lord please save me!  I know that there is nothing that I can do to earn my salvation.  Please put YOUR righteousness in me, change me, get everything that is ungodly out of my heart and out of my life.  Purify me from ALL unrighteousness…”  And as you start to get your eyes on HIM and off of the doctrines of men, He picks you up, He purifies you and He puts A NEW SPIRIT IN YOU, and He makes you HOLY and RIGHTEOUS.  All the things that were defiling you He pulls OUT of your heart.  And as you are changed, He leads you in the newness of life.  So, I want to encourage people to not let condemnation fall on them.  And also, that they/you don’t fall into lukewarm living, but that we get our eyes on Jesus Christ and that we don’t let ANYTHING stop us from entering the Kingdom of God.  I hope this encourages someone to get their eyes on Jesus Christ, to REPENT of their sins and to follow Jesus Christ in complete holiness!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Don't put your faith in the Rapture date

Don’t Put Your Faith in the Rapture Date

Don’t put your faith in someone’s word who has predicted the end of the world or a rapture date, the return of the Lord or the Day of the Lord.  The one thing ALL of these people have had in common is they have missed the date, they have been wrong, and they have misled people.  Jesus said this in Matthew chapter 24:36; “Of that day and hour no one knows, NOT EVEN THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN, BUT MY FATHER ONLY.”  They all know this verse, but they say; “But we know the times we are in, we know the season, we know what the starts of heaven are saying…” And so they look at what the moon and the sun is doing and the alignment of the stars in the galaxy and they see the blood moons, and then they think they can predict what God will do by the signs that God has put in the heavens.  But they are always wrong, because they are not following Jesus Christ.  Satan cannot predict when Jesus will return, he couldn’t predict when Jesus would be on this earth or what his plan would be (to foil it) even though all the prophets spoke of it, and the prophets knew.  The only way to know what is going to happen is to say in tune with the Holy Spirit, NOT in tune with a prophet on the internet.  All these prophets will fall  short, their words will not come true, their dates will fail.  This is what Jesus did say in Matthew chapter 24, I’m going to start in verse 4-13; “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.”  See, a lot of people see the rumors of wars, we hear of the war that is happening right now, and people think it must be the end immediately.  But Jesus did NOT say the end would happen immediately during the time of this war, but He said the end is still to come, THE END IS NOT YET.  And then again Jesus said; Matt 24:11-13; “Then MANY FALSE prophets will rise up and deceive many.  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  But HE WHO ENDURES TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED.”   We cannot put our hope in being raptured, or a prophet’s rapture date.  We have to set in our hearts and our minds to endure to the VERY END OF OUR LIFE.  MANY people will be discouraged when the date comes and then it GOES and they are STILL HERE!  They will say; “Why was I not raptured?  Why did Jesus not come?”  And then they will have to question their entire foundation of their faith because NOTHING happened to the way THEY were imagining!  Is our faith REALLY in Jesus Christ?  Are we truly hearing from HIM?   Or are we listening to lying prophets and preachers and teachers who are led by their OWN imagination, who are led by their OWN thoughts of what the heavens are doing, that is the blood moons, what the sun and starts are doing… are we led by our own imagination of these things or are we truly in tune with the Holy Spirit?  It is true that God put signs in the heavens!  But WHO are we listening to?  Are we listening to Satan’s interpretation of that?  Are we listening to a lying prophet’s interpretation of that?  Or truly are we being led by the Holy Spirit?  Is HE in our heart?  And is our faith genuine and real because our eyes are on JESUS CHRIST, not anyone else?  Don’t put your faith in these prophecies that are coming out!  Don’t put your faith in the lying prophets.  And certainly DON’T put your faith in the rapture!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The 4 Soils Parable Brought me Conviction



The message that I want to share that the LORD has put on my heart the last few day is in regards to the 4 soils, and if you want to read along with me it is in Matthew chapter 13, and the part I want to read is actually the part where Jesus explains the parable.  And as I read through it, you know, each one of us fall into one of these 4 categories. But the reason why it is convicting for me is because as I read through this I put myself in the shoes of each of these people, and I want you to do the same thing, as Jesus is explaining this parable, look at your own like and think; “Do I match this ground or am I really the good soil.  I’m starting in verse 18;

“Therefore hear the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart.  This is he who received seed by the wayside.”   I could immediately say, well obviously that’s not me, most likely that is not you… the seed of the truth that God has planted in me, I have not denied, I have not rejected, but the Holy Spirit has grown in me.  So, for many of us we can just read on by that and it doesn’t bring us conviction…

“But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while.  For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, mediately he stumbles.”  A lot of people fall into this category but I can say “Not me”, I’ve went through persecution for my faith, I have gone through many trials, many things have happened to me, and still I push through, but I read on… Jesus says in verse 22;

 “Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.”  That to me is very convicting because in this world it is really easy to fall into the lusts of the flesh, it’s easy to be choked out by riches or by the deceitfulness of the lusts of your own flesh, sports, hobbies, just chasing after higher education… I’m not saying it’s wrong to be educated… But ALL of the things in this WORLD take your eyes off of Jesus and then you get choked out, and this is where most Christians will fail.  Most Christians aren’t immediately denying Jesus, they’re not falling away just because of a little persecution or a trial, but they do get choked out because of riches, or because of sports or things that they desire MORE than GOD.  And that also brings conviction to me and I want to make SURE that every single day I am fully in TUNE with the Holy Spirit and fully surrendered to HIM, because if we are not and we make other things a priority OVER GOD and we get lazy (in the Kingdom work) Then this world will certainly choke us out.  Many people are choked out by addictions of the world, they are choked out by their cell phones, or by the fear of the war that is going on, the fear of the things that are going to come upon the world, they are just choked out by everything in the world and instead of having their eyes fixed on their Creator, on the Lord Jesus Christ and producing FRUIT, they become totally fruitless. 

It is sad to see people at the end of their life that once were believers, who once were Christians but they no longer have anything to give.  I don’t want to be that Christian.  All my life whether I live long or short, I want it to be for the glory of God, always producing good fruit, always on fire for the Living God, bearing GOOD FRUIT ALL THE TIME FOR HIS NAME.  And in order to do that WE ALWAYS HAVE TO PUT HIM FIRST, and as we put HIM first He fills up His love in our heart, His truth, His words.  And that truth, that love, it bubbles up in us until we are like a cup overflowing with the water of life.  And that is how we need to be.  We need to be an encouragement to others, not a constant drain upon others.  We need to every single day be filled with the glory of God, pleasing Him, living for Him and enduring with Him. 

So, check your own life and ask; “Am I producing good fruit? Is my first thought of the day really for the LORD, asking Him, pleading with Him, HOW can I produce good fruit for YOU?  How can I deny myself correctly?  How can I honor you with my life?  How can I surrender everything that I have to you, my job, my money, my relationship my spouse, my children, my hobbies, my education, my carriers, my achievements… everything that I have?  How can I lay that down, cast my crowns before my God and say; “Have your way with me, to make me the man or the woman that you want me to be.”  Because that is the sort of people that enter the Kingdom of God.  That is the sort of people that we want to be, if we are gong to be the sons and the daughters of the Kingdom of Heaven.  I want to enter His Kingdom, and I know that I am not above anything that I preach, I am not excluded.   All of us are being watched by our Creator and everything we do is recorded and remembered and Jesus will judge every single one of us according to our works, that is our words, our actions, our thoughts, the things that we said and did.  Are we bearing GOOD FRUIT?  Are we good seed in good soil?  Or are we getting choked out by the world?  I encourage you to get anything and everything out of your life that is choking you, anything that pulls you down that keeps you away from God, that keeps you from being fruitful.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.    

And finally Matthew 13:23 says; “But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces; some a hundredfold, some sixty and some thirty.”    Are you good seed in good soil producing fruit?

Satan will strip your identity

 


Satan Will Strip Your Identity

There was a time in my life that I did not know who I was.  That is because I was trying to become someone in the world, yet God had called me to the path of righteousness.  And God let me just fumble around in the wilderness, stumbling and not knowing my own identity.  Ironically enough, one summer I did a summer camp, it was a day camp with the junior high students that I was working with in the church.  And I called that summer camp “Identity”.  I made a shirt, and the shirt had a picture of a man on it that had some kind of a cage for his face, with a question mark.  And it basically meant that the man didn’t know his own identity.  And during that camp I was preaching on finding our identity in Christ. I new it with my MIND but in my heart spiritually I was LOST.  And I was lost for years even though I could preach the truth in church.  A lot of Christians are like how I was.  They know the truth, they know the bible, but still they are LOST IN THE WILDERNESS, they don’t know their own identity, and because they are trying to be something in the WORLD, they’re not finding their identity in Jesus Christ.  Are you really found in Jesus Christ?  Do you know Him and are you walking the path that HE wants you to walk?  Or are you lost in the world and having an identity crisis?  I encourage you to PRAY, seek after your Creator.  Get to have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  He loves you and He has a specific path for you to walk, and He will give you your identity in HIM because He loves you and He has a very specific plan for YOU.  Do you love Jesus and are you genuine with HIM and with yourself, are you genuine around other people because YOU ARE the person who Jesus made you to be?  Or are you trying to be someone else?  May the grace of Jesus be with you. 

 

Even Satan knows the gospel

 You will not go to heaven just by agreeing with the gospel. You actually have to LIVE the gospel and be as good seed in good soil, just as Jesus taught.  I run into a lot of folks who are Christians or were missionaries and they already know the gospel. But many of these people do not display any real Christian fruit in their life. How about you?  Have you truly repented and do you bear the fruit of righteousness in your life?

Predestined and election: Does God treat all equally?

 


Predestination Election: Does God Treat All Equally?

 

The Apostle Paul speaks about things such as election and predestination and God knowing where people are going to go even before they ae born, he speaks specifically in Romans 9 about the children of Israel, that is Jacob and Esau and how God loved Jacob and He hated Esau.  So, does God just choose some of us to go to hell while electing others to go to heaven?  The answer is God is ALWAYS JUST and He always judges us according to OUR HEART.  If you were just to read the writings of the Apostle Paul, say for example Romans 9, say 10-13, you may come to the conclusion that God just sends people to hell for no reason, He hates people for no reason and He loves other people and brings them in as His elect for no reason.  And that’s simply NOT true.  If you look at the lives of people like Jacob and Esau, they had a serious of choices and God worked with them through those things that they did in their life, and He called them to repent.  And God always is for the righteous, He is for the humble, He is always for those who repent of their mistakes.  Jacob did that and God was for Jacob.  But God is against those that harden their heart, who are rebellious and who refuse to come to Him.  I want to give you an example of this from another 2 brothers who were Cain and Able.  As we know Cain killed Able, but before Cain kills Able, God gives Cain a word to him and God says this to Cain; (Gen 4:6-7) “So the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry?  And why has your countenance fallen?”  and then God says to him; “If you do well, will you not be accepted?  And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door.  And its desire is for you, but you should RULE OVER IT.””   God did not just predestine Cain for hell, He did not just predestine Cain to kill his brother, but God specifically came to Cain and He gave Him the words of life, he told him what he had to do, and told him he had a choice.  ALL of us have a choice, will we choose what is right?  Will we be in God’s blessing because we choose to do what is righteous?  Or will we be in God’s curse because we reject Him.  Don’t be deceived by the church that says, “You can do no wrong, you are just part of God’s elect, you have been saved long ago, you are gong to heaven…” And certainly don’t believe Satan’s lie that you’re just going to hell no matter what you do.  Satan will throw accusations at you saying; “You are just part of the damned, you have been hated since you were born, everyone knows that you are of a corrupted seed and God will send you to hell, you are just predestined no matter what you do…”  NONE of that is true.  If you look at the stories of just how God worked with His children He ALWAYS gave them the opportunity to repent, He didn’t just predestine the to heaven without cause, and He didn’t just damn them to hell without cause.  The Lord is ALWAYS JUST in His dealings.  We can gather some VERY wrong conclusions from what the Apostle Paul wrote, or what other people wrote throughout the Scriptures, but the truth is, THE LORD IS JUST.  He loves every single one of us, BUT HE DOES NOT TREAT US EQUALLY IN REGARDS TO WHAT WE DO.  If we choose what is evil God will start to detest us, He will hate our lives, He will hate us to the core because we are rejecting Him, we are rejecting His Spirit.  But on the flip side of that, if we reject SIN, if we reject the evil nature, if we can overcome then the Lord will receive us.  But we need to MASTER OUR SIN, we have to OVERCOME THE FLESH, we have to overcome hatred and evil desires, and if we do then the LORD will receive us.  There is a reason that God loved Able, and there is a reason God loved Jacob.  You know Jacob was a deceiver, he started out on the wrong foot, but he repented, he had a love for the LORD in his heart and he chose to walk in the way of the Lord, he wasn’t perfect but the Lord perfected him as he started walking with the Lord.  He had a heart to desire what was true and what was right.  He walked with the LORD.  So did Abraham his father, he wasn’t perfect, but he had a heart to walk with the LORD.  It  is true that even before we are born GOD KNOWS what choices we are going to make because God is Omnipotent, He knows ALL things.  But don’t fall into the thought that you can’t repent because God just is sending you to hell, that simply is NOT true.  No one is in hell because there were just predestined by God APART from their choices, their actions, the things that they physically and spiritually did.  You will be sent to hell if you reject the words of Jesus Christ.  You are accountable to your actions, your thoughts, and your words.  Will you overcome?  Will you MASTER SIN?  Will you OVERCOME IT?  Will you call on the name of Jesus and be saved or will sin master you and will you fall into temptation?  And will God reject you because you never came into His presence, you never overcame the darkness?  I hope that you overcome in the name of JESUS and really come into HIS love.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

You would fear God if you knew who He was

 

You Would Fear God if You Knew Who He was

Jesus taught that we aught to fear GOD, and this sense of fear means actually being fearful of God’s wrath.  A lot of Christians do not agree that we should fear God, but if they knew who God really was, they would fear Him.  It is the ignorant that don’t know God that don’t fear Him.  But everyone will fear God one day.  This is what Jesus taught about the fear of God in Matthew chapter 10:27-33; “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops, and do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.  Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all umbered.  Do not ear therefore; you are more value than many sparrows.  Therefore, whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.  But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”  Jesus Christ does not treat all of us equally, he pays back every single one of us ACCORDING TO OUR WORKS. (Matthew 16:27)  He loves every singe one of us, but He does NOT love evil, He does not love the coward, He does not love the sinner, He does not love the hypocrite.  And many of us WERE cowards, we were liars, we were hypocrites, we were immoral, but when we came to Jesus WE REPENTED and Jesus gave us a new life (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)  He changed our heart and our mind, He put in our conscience the right thing to do.  And He gave us the FEAR OF GOD, knowing that if we go back to the old ways, He has the power to cast us into HELL.  (Hebrews 10:26-27)  Many Christians don’t have ANY fear of God, they have believed the easy grace gospel lie, that God loves everyone the same and that everyone will just go to heaven in the end as long as they have just confessed that Jesus Christ is LORD.  You cannot just confess with your lips and go to heaven with your lip service. (Matthew 15:7-9)  If your heart is far from God, no matter what you confess with your lips God knows your heart and that you are a liar and a hypocrite.  Hypocrites and liars will have their part in the Lake that burns with fire.  (Revelation 21:8)  We have to truly repent, we have to have the fear of God in us, and when we do and when we seek after the Lord and hold His hand and walk with Him every day, He will protect us from our enemy.  We shouldn’t fear those who can threaten us and kill us physically but we have to always fear HIM, that is GOD, who after we are dead on this earth, has the power to cast our soul into HELL for all eternity!  Who do you really fear?  Do you fear God or do you fear men?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Homosexuality and Christians

 

A LARGE portion of Christians still are against homosexuality and that is good. But the same Christians are themselves addicted to porn and are FULL of lust, and that is very bad. Pretty much every man is a slave to lust, falling every time. The only ones who are NOT a slave are the ones who have their eyes on Jesus and not on the half naked women. It's pretty easy to preach to the choir in church against a sin no one is struggling with. It is much harder to confess your sin to your fellow brothers and sisters and then to actually repent of it. But if you do not confess your secret sins and actually repent, you are also in danger of hellfire.  Don't fool yourself into thinking that you're better than anyone because you dont struggle with homosexuality. You must repent of YOUR sins and live holy or you will not inherit the kingdom of God either. God makes no exceptions.

Rediculous legalism around hats

 

Some Christians are very concerned about the writings of the Apostle Paul in 1st Corinthians chapter 11 which speak to head coverings. They literally think that if a woman is not wearing a hat she is a disgrace and her hair should be cut off. They also think that if a man is wearing a hat he shouldn't be praying or prophesying. So how does that coexist with the fact that we should be praying continually without ceasing? Does that mean that men should never wear a hat? Do we supposed any true man of God wearing a hat cannot be lawfully praying? What about when your job requires you to wear a hat all day and you want to pray? Will God condemn you for prayin in your uniform?  Let's NOT fall to legalism as many have who have misinterpreted Paul's letters!  Remember that Paul spoke to Christians both Jews and gentiles around year 50 a.d.  During this time it would have been considered promiscuous for a woman to take off her head covering in public. Also, apparently it was a sign a man was being disrespectful if he did not take his head covering off during a public prayer meeting, demonstrating to others that he did not respect them or God. But what about TODAY? Some suppose that these writings of Paul should be applied to you and to me. But take this into consideration: When was the last time any man has lusted after a woman for not wearing a hat? Be honest.  Likely, the times you fell to lust as a man was NOT due to a woman not wearing a hat, but due to tight clothing; such things as yoga pants, tight skirts, short dresses, crop tops and other sorts of immodest clothing that women wear. These sorts of apparel cause men to stumble into sexual sin. But I don't know of any man who fell into lust simply because a woman was not wearing a hat over her hair on the top. Likewise, when was the last time you saw men in our culture chose to be disrespectful by holding a public prayer meeting where they all decided to wear hats to demonstrate their rebellion against God? That just never happens because it's not a thing in our culture. So what is the purpose of bringing all this up?  The fact is God is ALWAYS looking at your HEART, not if you're wearing a hat or not. In your HEART you know what it means to be modest and respectful towards other brothers. In your HEART you know what it means to be modest and respectful in your culture and in your house and in your marriage! That is what you're going to be judged on; if you love God with your HEART and your neighbor as yourself and if you kept yourself pure. But no one is going to be sent to hell for wearing a hat while praying or not wearing a hat in public as a female. So let us be mature in our understanding and not legalistic as the hypocrites.

Jesus has come to deliver and set you free

 


Jesus has Come to Deliver and Set You Free

 

           Those who are captive and slaves to sin will be set free IF they put their faith in JESUS CHRIST.  This is what is recorded about Jesus in Luke 4:16-30

“16So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

18“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,

Because He has anointed Me

To preach the gospel to the poor;

He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind,

To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

19To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

 

20Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 22So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, “Is this not Joseph’s son?”

23He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’ ” 24Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. 25But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; 26but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”

28So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. 30Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.

 

           The Pharisees an the Jewish leaders of that day did not approve of the salvation of Jesus Christ, they were jealous and they wanted people to come to THEM, not to be set free from bondage and sin in the name of JESUS.  Today we have the exact same problem.  The church leaders are jealous of the power of God, they would rather you go to THEM, that you continually say in bondage, that you would not be set free so that you may feel compelled to pay them tithe, money every week and that you would continually go to THEM for your salvation.  But Jesus has come to set you free.  Not that you would be in bondage to SIN and DEAD RELIGION. 

I want to read to you what Jesus was reading from in Isaiah 61:1-3; “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive, and the opening of the prison to those who are bond; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for  the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”

           For those that repent and find the righteousness of Jesus Christ, THEY WILL BE SAVED.  But the vengeance of God will come upon those who refuse to repent, just as the vengeance of God came upon the Pharisees who hated the words of Jesus Christ.  Will you be like those who were overjoyed to hear the words of Jesus?  Will you ask Him to set you free?  Will you come out of the darkness of sin?  Will you confess your sin and REPENT?  Or will you go more into BONDAGE and will the vengeance of GOD fall upon you. There is hope for you in the name of Jesus IF YOU REPENT TODAY.

Hebrew Roots Movement

Jesus was not going around preaching the Ten Commandments, the Law of Moses and the Torah,  like the judaizers and the "Hebrew Roots movement" adherents are today. Jesus went around preaching the kingdom of God and called people to follow HIM, proclaiming that something greater had arrived, which was and IS Himself. Don't be deceived by the Hebrew Roots Movement or the judaizers. Get to know Jesus Christ for real. Hear His voice and Obey Him or God will reject you.

God Hates Corruption: Remember Ananias and Sapphira

 God Hates Corruption:  Remember Ananias and Sapphira


These are the days to be very serious

about our life.

Many people think, that they can get away

with sin,

so they play games with God, they think,

that they're safe and secure, going to

heaven,

that God will never bring judgment upon

them,

so they continue to do sin, saying that

they are forgiven,

that they were saved long ago

and

they deceive themselves and they deceive

others.

While  I was driving home the other day,

the Holy Spirit reminded me of something

and that was the story about Ananias and

Saphira

and in the story of acts chapter 5, it's

the very beginning of the church age,

you have the apostles, who are

testifying that Jesus Christ is alive

and people are coming into the faith

and people are all giving to the greater

good of the church, helping one another,

being one body, the body of Christ

and you see this man, who goes out and he

buys (sells) a plot of land

and he buys it for a certain sum of

money, maybe that was about a hundred

thousand dollars

of today's money

and then he goes to the church

and he talks to Peter and he tells Peter

that

he has bought this plot of land for

twenty thousand dollars and he will give

ALL the proceeds

or

when he sold the land, I mean,

so all the money, that he got from

selling this land, he will give to the

church and Peter by the Holy Spirit immediately

knows that Ananias is lying

and

immediately after Peter confronts him

telling him that

he could have given any amount of money,

that he wanted to the church, but because

he's lying, he's lying to the Holy Spirit

and immediately for his corruption

Ananias falls dead and the young man, the

young men in the church drag him off to

the graveyard and they bury him.

Just a few minutes later after that of

course Ananias's wife comes in and

they do

kind of a sting operation, they,

you know, ask her, they don't just tell

her, that

her husband's dead, but the church

members, they say: How much was it, that

you bought that or you sold that land

for?

And she says the same thing: oh, it was

$20 000, you know,

and immediately she lies and they

confront her and they say:

well, your husband is already dead and

the same feet, that

drug him out and buried him you will

also be dead with him and she falls dead

and breathes her last and they bury her

next to

her husband, you know the story most

likely.


        I have heard this story,

also taught in the churches and the

pastors act as though

God was once vengeful, He was once very

strict, He was once against sin, but now

God has changed,

now God doesn't stand up against

corruption,

the pastors will come out and say: "Well

if God did that today, everyone in our

church would be dead..."

And they are right. If God did do that,

everyone would be dead and the truth is,

why God doesn't do that in the churches

today is because the churches belong to

satan. (God does not judge The Outsiders first before he judges His own people)

The churches don't belong to the Holy

Spirit, they belong to the devil.

If

God hates corruption and God has not

changed,

the same God who

killed Ananias and Saphira

will also kill and destroy all of those,

who are claiming to be disciples, who are

claiming to be Christians,

but who are living in corruption.

God is against corruption, He is against

the corrupt church

and the corrupt church leaders will be

killed by the hand of God.

God has not changed,

it's not that God used to be strict and

He used to love justice and He used to

love

discipline and now He's gone

mushy, you know, now He's 

lazy in His discipline.

God has not changed,

it is the opinions of men that have

changed.


   The church of today

is many times more corrupt,

we look back at that

situation of acts chapter 5 with Ananias

and Saphira and we just think: man,

that's how it was in the olden days, i'm

glad, God's not like that, that's not true.

God is going to discipline His children

and He's going to kill those,

who are corrupt.

When this happened in the early church,

GREAT fear fell on them, the fear of God

fell upon them, because they knew, that

God was real and He is serious.

We cannot live in any corruption,

make sure, that you get yourself and your

family out of the churches of today,

they're corrupt, more corrupt, than any

organization.

they're bringing people to hell,

the doors of the church are one in the

same as the doors to hell, you go in

there and you're walking yourself into

the pit of hell.

The pastors are agents of satan,

they are corrupt.

Don't allow corruption to come upon you

and your family and therefore

also the judgment of God. Come out and be

separate from the harlot church system,

come out and be separate from people, who

are corrupt,

people who are living in sin and in

bondage.

If you come out and be separate

the Holy Spirit will receive you, you

will become a child of God, Jesus will

lead you by His Holy Spirit,

but if you continue to let men guide you,

who are corrupt in church,

for this reason the judgment of God is

coming upon many Christians, that's why

many of them are sick and dying, diseased,

their families are falling apart, this is

all due to sin

and these things are

the punishment of God.

I warn you to stay separate,

don't get into a church, get out of

church and get into a relationship with

Jesus Christ, He is alive

and He leads His little flock.

His true flock is small and they're

scattered all around the world,

different places,

but when the Holy Spirit calls them out

of the world, then they follow the lamb,

wherever He leads, they sanctify

themselves in His blood.

Jesus purges them of sin

and then they do the acts of

righteousness, every single day they wake

up praying

and praising the Lord and throughout the

day they pray continually, they rejoice

in the Lord, they sing His praises,

they do good for others,

it's not about going to church on

sundays or on Saturdays, it's not about

religion or ceremonies,

it's about living our life

under the guidance of the Holy Spirit

every moment.

Are we doing that, are we connected to

the Holy Spirit?

Are we free of sin and hypocrisy

or are we like the worldly Christians,

who are still into pornography, into

ungodly music, going out to the malls and

watching all the movies,

addicted to the media, acting just like

all the movie actors,

following celebrities,

but at the same time having bible study

in their home, thinking, that they have a

form of righteousness?

Make sure, that you stay separate, keep

yourself far away from dead religion and

people that call themselves Christians,

Churchgoers, pastors, elders,

leaders in the church, keep yourself away

from them,

because the judgment of God is coming on

those, who live disorderly.

God is against sin,

He is against hypocrisy!

and He is certainly against corruption!

May the grace of Jesus be with you.
