There are only two competing forces in the universe (though by no means equal—“equality” is not part of God’s Program): God and Satan. The former uncreated, Eternal, and Omnipotent; the latter created and limited. God does not extend to Satan a handicap; nor will God share His Throne with him. Satan has undertaken his mutiny because that is what God ordained, and Satan is a mere pawn playing the role that God determined for him; though in the delusion that God placed upon Satan, Satan thinks that his rebellion is his own idea and that he is a moral “free agent” operating outside the realm of God’s Jurisdiction and control: the majority of God’s people are blinded by the same delusion. The vessels of wrath were created for one purpose: They were created as the object upon whom God would display His Wrath as a picture illustration of His Holiness, which is vindicated by His Justice and thus display His Power in His vindication. God’s BEING defines His Attributes, which are not defined by man’s polluted, ever-changing notions of what sinful man thinks “good” and “evil” are; or based upon what sinful man thinks is “fair”.
This is our problem, in a nutshell—it is why Christendom is being destroyed. God has planned it for His Own Purpose and His Own Glory (though no trial seems joyous to those who are exercised thereby and suffer therein). Those dullards who think, “If God has already planned all what does it matter if I try to do what is right or what is wrong?”—by all means, if you are content to live in wickedness and prove that God has ordained you as a vessel of wrath unto destruction and Eternal Judgment, then fill ye up the full measure thereof! However, I would prefer that sanity prevail and the Holy Spirit convict you of your unregeneracy and fill your darkened heart and mind with Truth and Light and the desire for holiness, that you may be testimony to God’s Mercy, Grace, and Power to change even you. If not, we now return you to your regularly scheduled program...
It is not merely a matter of “as if” behaviour, or “the power of positive thinking” and “if you can see it you can be it”. While such humanistic fantasies have merely a small fiber of legitimacy they can be added helps* if one realizes that it is God who has determined all and that without Him we can do nothing. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and equally so are the steps of the wicked (Psalm 37:23; Jude 1:4). “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his [own] steps.” (Jeremiah 10:23) Paul expresses a similar sentiment in Romans 9, specifically concerning the wicked; though humanists who think that they are “more holy” than God, attempt to save God from Himself by declawing Him and removing His Teeth to render Him harmless. This is not the God of the Bible. That is why few today truly fear Him. That is why few today actually bow before Him and recognize Him as GOD.
[* A saying goes, “If you think that you can do something, you are right; if you think that you can’t do it, you are right again”. There is something to be said for resolve, not giving up, perseverance, faithfulness, heart, stick-to-it-ness, etc. However, this cannot change the limitation of physics of the natural world (which God designed to operate within the nature He gave it). Adrenalin can indeed give a person the strength to do lift something that he did not think that he could (and which he probably could not have, under normal circumstances—because he would have had no reason to push his body to the limits); endorphins, when they kick in, like afterburners on a jet, give a runner a second wind, when he thought that he could not take another step; after you have driven all night and are so tired that you can barely keep your eyes open, the rising of the sun ahead of you on the horizen, gives you mental “fresh wind” in your sails, and envigorates you to the point that you forget that you were tired. These things are all within the boundary of natural law. They have nothing to do with a person exceeding the limitations of physics; nor do they change the fact that God is in control and has ordained all. All kinds of focus, a form of self-hypnosis, deep concentration and resolve, are helpful. In a life-or-death situation, a person who may have simply given up, if all that was at stake was his own life, will persevere all hardship, pain, fear, and threat, when the lives of others dear to him are also at stake. It is a false inference, an error of logic, and delusion to consider anything outside its own genre of reality. Sometimes delusions are useful (most of the time they are detrimental)—but even in such cases, there comes a times when delusions must give way to reality. We are at such a terminus in Christendom. Jefferson referred to the morality established by the Word of God as the “ancient principles”. We need to return to them—but one cannot return to something of which he is utterly ignorant other than he can come back from someplace he has never been. The modern delusions of Apostate Christianity, that Jesus abolished the Law of God (which Christ said that He did NOT) is the delusion that keeps God’s true people in self-contained bondage. Those who think that Jesus abolished God’s Law are thus in perpetual sin and God does not hear their prayers and they cannot even “repent” because they think that they have done nothing to “repent of” and repentance entails turning from sin while turning to obedience, in addition to confessing sin and asking forgiveness. Keeping the Law of God has nothing to do with salvation—it is a proof of salvation; which is why the majority of “Christians” don’t keep it: because Christ is not in them. The Law of God is morality; the difference, in every area, between right and wrong; between good and evil—which never changes. Those who think that it does have polluted minds that need to be regenerated and renewed. Until this is recognized, admitted, and confessed, it makes no sense to do anything and you might as well simply embrace the tsunami of Judgment that God has sent.]
God determined and controls all, on the macro level and micro level. Nothing merely evolves or is on autopilot charting its own course.
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His Good Pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13)
Even Christ said,
“The Son of man goeth as it is written of Him...” (Matthew 26:24)
And concerning every event in Christ’s Life culminating in His betrayal, arrest, trial, and crucifiction, Scripture says,
“27For of a truth against Thy Holy Child Jesus, whom Thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28For to do whatsoever Thy Hand and Thy Counsel determined before to be done.” (Acts 4)
[For more in-depth thought along these lines, see my, Does God Repent...? — Can God Change His Mind...?, 506pp., pb., 25.00 + P&H.]
God rebukes ignorant, haughty humans who think that God must operate according to sinful human notions:
“...thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them [truth] in order before thine eyes.” (Psalm 50:21)
God is not bound to think, be, and act as sinful, confused, polluted man thinks that He should. Those who think otherwise do not know God. God is not a puppy dog on man’s leash.
God is Sovereign. He is the Ultimate Authority and Power. He and He Alone determines the difference between good and evil, light and darkness, morality and immorality, virtues and abominations—and they never change. Those who think that they do are friends of the world, and therefore, the enemies of God. Because of Christendom’s turning from the only morality, to sin against every Command of God, including absorbing and helping the savages, Christendom is being destroyed by the situation that they have created or allowed to be created. As in Ezekiel’s prophecy (7:24), God is once again sending the very worst of the heathen to dispossess us (just as God Promised), because we have turned from His unchanging Law—the only Standard of Morality. Instead of repenting, even the majority of the “conservative” Christian pastors are instructing God’s flock to “embrace” the flood that the Dragon / Serpent has spewed out of his mouth to destroy Christendom in judgment for lusting after the heathen and their ways. In complete violation of God’s Word, the “pastors” are encouraging God’s people to continue in their sin (telling them that it “pleases Jesus”) rather than repent. They know not God. They do not know the Voice of the Shepherd, if they believe the very opposite of what He commanded—and Scripture says that such are not His sheep! By their fruits ye shall know them. They are friends of the world; preaching a “world friendly” false gospel that teaches the very opposite of what Christ taught. No wonder Christendom is being destroyed.
God forbade us to help the ungodly or do good unto them that hate the Lord (II Chronicles 19:2)—and that passage is referring to our own kinsmen if they are wicked. God commanded separation from aliens; to join with them is Babylon, which means, “confusion by mixing”—which is why Scripture refers to our day as end time Babylon. Doing so destroys us in every way possible. In the Epistle of Second John (1:10,11) Scripture informs us that if we even bid “God Speed” (a mere verbal well wish / blessing) on even our kinsmen who reject the Doctrine of Christ—we share in their wicked deeds! Scripture tells us whoever rejects Christ as God is antichrist. Do you think that God is “pleased” when His children bless and do good unto antichrist who is destroying Christendom? Did Christ pronounce “blessings” to be showered upon Judas...? NO. Christ declared, “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be [why...? —because that is what God determiend] that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” (Matthew 18:17) and that “good were it for that man if he had never been born” (Mark 14:21). Christ commanded, “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew 7:6). He was not giving a lesson in animal husbandry. Those who do not obey Christ (Who reinforced the entire Law of God, the only Standard of morality—not for salvation, which it NEVER was for, but because that is what honorable children do: they obey their father) do not love Him. Words are meaningless. “Intentions” are meaningless. Did you do what I commanded is all that matters. God’s Plan never changes. Morality never changes. Even as the U.S. Constitution is not to be interpreted according to the modern notions of polluted minds, but according to what the Founders intended at the time that they drafted it, so also the Bible is not to be reinterpreted according to modern polluted notions, but according to the never-changing Decrees of God. Those who do not do so are the enemy. John wrote in his First Epistle (2:4) that those who claim to be Christians who do not obey God’s Commandments are liars and the Truth is not in them. Those who think they can invent a “higher morality” than what God established, like Satan, attempt to exalt themselves above God—and they are antichrist: for Christ Himself is Lawgiver and Creator and that is why He Himself shall be Judge of all of His Creation. This is why David wrote, “Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His Wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him” (Psalm 2:12). You cannot have trust in the Judge if you disobey all that He commanded and do the work of the enemy. There is no middle ground. Those who are not with Him are against Him; those who do not perform His Work, attempt to undo His Work.
Those “Christians” who are in complete violation of all that God commanded do not know God and do not know Christ. Scripture tells us,
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17)
If a person claims to be a Christian and all things (everything that God forbade) have not passed away in that person’s life and all things (everything that God commanded) have not become new in that person’s life—then that person was never regenerated. God makes the rules; not man. Those who think that man makes the rules are humanists, not Christians. Humanism is merely a euphemism for Satanism. There are only two competing forces in the universe; even if one is oblivious to them and even if one thinks that he is his own moral “free agent” in the world, operating entirely independent of God or Satan. God chooses man’s delusions (Isaiah 66:4; II Thessalonians 2:11) for His Own Purpose (Isaiah 46:10; Ephesians 1:9,11; Philippians 2:13).
Christ is not Saviour of those for whom He is not Lord. Lord means MASTER, OWNER. Scripture says,
“19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (I Corinthians 6)
If a person does not live demonstrating that God owns him and that God is his Master—then he was not bought with a price! Scripture says,
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
If you are not walking in the “good works”* that God ordained for those who are His workmanship to walk in** then you are not His! Every tree is known by its fruit.
[* The good works of which Scripture speaks refer to obedience to all that God commanded. It is not referring to man’s own notions of “good works”, which of man’s choosing, like helping a little old lady across the street; or like throwing some spare change in the “Good Will” donation kettle (which itself is actually a sin, for God forbids indiscriminate charity).
** “This is the Way walk ye in it” (Isaiah 30:21). “Ye shall walk in all the Ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess” (Deuteronomy 5:33). Another dozen verses could be quoted.]
Fetuses that are spontaneously aborted in the womb or that are stillborn do not demonstrate signs of life because they are not alive: they are dead. If children do not walk in the footsteps of their Father—and the Father does not chasten them, then they are not his legitimate children, but bastards (Hebrews 12:8). God’s Law is His “House Rules” which He commanded His children to follow throughout all their generations forever. Those who do not do so were never regenerated, which is why they have no desire to obey and please God: because they are devoid of the Holy Spirit.
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16)
What are the “lusts of the flesh”...? —the violation of everything that God commanded; which the subsequent verses even delineate:
“19 ...Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
This passage is not talking about works-oriented salvation. Those who think so show their spiritual ignorance (who cannot understand simple “cause and effect”* because they are spiritually blind and have no discernment) and are devoid of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God regenerates unto new life; those who do not walk in obedience were never regenerated. A tree does not bear apples to become an apple tree; an apple tree bears apples because that is what its Creator ordained for it to bear. False prophets, blind shepherds, evil shepherds have led the flock of God so far astray they cannot even see the Standard and are so polluted minded that they think that the way to draw closer to God is to travel farther away from Him. So ignorant are they of God and His Nature and Word, when they hear sound doctrine for the first time they reject it as something abominable. Infants have the same reaction when they are fed meat. God’s Thoughts and Ways are not the same as man’s. His Ways are astronomically above our own and His Thoughts and Ways never change: for God is Holy, Perfect, and Immutable. We have been turned from the only true path and been fooled into thinking that the broad road to destruction is the path to life. This is why all of Christendom is about to be destroyed.
[* Man is never the cause. As William Cowper elegantly penned, “Nature is but an effect who cause is God”. Henry W. Longfellow, likewise, eloquently penned: “Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience he stands waiting, with exactness grinds he all.” God is the Alpha and Omega: the Beginning and the End (and everything in between). “It is in Him that we live and move and have our being.” “... that in all things He might have the pre-eminence.” God is Immutable. He is Omniscient. His Knowledge is not passive, but active. “...as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand” (Isaiah 14:24). Man does not write his own script, forcing it into God’s Mind, causing God to “change” and “adapt” to man. Those who believe so worship a false god. All the universe and all its history is God’s Drama that He wrote and directs, to infinitessimal exactness, for His Own Glory. All Dramas have villains, victims, and heroes; and there is a dichotomy of truth, which I expressed in detail in a poem in 1987, “The Battle of Life” (which I published in my collection, Bittersweet Impressions and Inspirations) but simply expressed, we could not appreciate health if we were never sick or in pain; we could not appreciate Mercy and Forgiveness had we not fallen, etc. We could not truly appreciate wealth had we never been poor. All of Creation, its history and God’s Plan is God’s self-expression of all His Attributes. God is Truth; and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. God is not as sinful man wants Him to be, but as God declared Himself to be.]
Christendom has been destroyed because of “Christians” who think that reality and “morality” is what they want it to be, based upon the world’s polluted notions of fairness, equality, and leaning unto sinful man’s own understanding, instead of recognizing God. Most “Christians” do not even understand the concept of GOD. They think that God is an impotent, doting old grandfather who is a gentleman and endures all and simply sits back passively twiddling his thumbs, helplessly, “hoping” that his children make the right decisions; and is pleased with them no matter what they do. This is not the God of the Bible. God is as He revealed Himself to be in His Word, not as sinful man prefers to think of Him as being (that is, being like the gods of mythology, formed in the minds of sinful men, like themselves, being weak and sinful and imperfect).
Man (even most “Christians”) thinks that morality is merely referring to “big” and “important” matters (which become “less important” each passing year, to the point that very few “major sins” even exist in the polluted minds of Christians or the Apostate Church; and all the “minor sins” are not even considered sins). Morality was forever established each time that God commanded “This shalt thou do!” and “Thou shalt not!” Morality is the difference between right and wrong and it never changes. God pronounces a curse on those who would call good ‘evil’ and evil ‘good’—which is what the Apostate Church has done in teaching the blasphemy that Christ abolished God’s Law and that what God commanded in the past does not matter any more. Those blind “Christians” who follow such antichrist teaching shall receive the same Judgment.
Christ abolished the CURSE of the Law, the death penalty that was against us—He did not abolish the Law itself (not one jot or tittle), which is perfect. Sinful man is the problem (Hebrews 8:8), not the Law of God. The hallmark of an unconverted mind is one that thinks that the Law of God is the problem. They consider the phrase “the Law of God” to be revolting and “sin itself”. God gave us merely about 613 laws and many of them are common sense and all of them are for our good. These are what the average “Christian” has been taught are “evil” and which their evil shepherds have taught them to disobey (and if those shepherds are even converted, they shall be the very least in the Kingdom). Yet those same “Bible experts” who teach them to ignore God’s Law, teach them that they must obey every single edict of sinful, renegade politicians (who are not even the Law, but are usurpers of the Law). The majority of these laws are unconstitutionally (and therefore, they are not valid law) passed and they are intended to enslave and impoverish us and enrich and empower the corrupt politicians and our enemies. There are over 300,000 Federal Laws alone, which fill 37 large hardback volumes printed in six-point to seven-point size print* and occupy over 17 feet of shelf space. Your God and Lord is the one whom you fear and obey. Whom do you fear and obey? Do you say, “every one of those 300,000 Federal Laws is not really important; most of them have probably ‘passed away’”...? Or do you “short-change” God?
[* Actually the main print on this page is 18-point, the part that I made smaller is actually only 8-point print.]
Those who think that various laws of God were “unimportant” show their ignorance of truth, and the fact that they don’t know God. God is Holy. No law was given haphazardly or whimsically. Each law establishes morality—the way that He commanded us to live. Bad theology, like lies, need more of the same to cover the former. The end result is that the whole is eventually eroded and there is nothing left to “believe” in other than sinful man himself being the sum and substance and center of all things. This is Satanism and it is Antichrist. Like an immoral, irresponsible person who has a running tab at a bar or a store, who thinks that because the proprietor has never demanded the bill to be paid, that he has either has forgotten or will never demand it to be paid. The person trapped in such delusion is oblivious to the fact that the bill continues to accrue and Judgment Day approaches. Such is the state of the average “Christian” (and each nation of Christendom, on a national level) who casually sins each day before a Holy God because he believed the lie of the Serpent that the Law was abolished. The average “Christian” is actually an atheist and does not believe that God exists; or he believes in a humanistic god who will never judge anyone. Those who believe in such a god are guilty of idolatry.
NEWS FLASH: ALL the EVIL that has come upon us (and if you don’t think that society is oozing obnoxious, foul, toxic, putrid evil from every pore—we now return you to your regularly scheduled program...) and the reason that Christendom is about to fall is NOT due to God being happy with us...! When will it occur to the average “Christian” that what he is doing “ain’t working”...? that what he believes is NOT true...? that God is NOT pleased...? that his theology, doctrine, and philosophy is as putrid as the perverse world and stinks to high Heaven...? When will the person, on a ship in which the engine has failed, and the ship is rapidly progressing toward the edge of Niagara Falls—when will he begin to worry...? As I have written for over a decade, “Why should God deliver us from what we are willing to tolerate”...? God commanded us to hate evil—not be tolerant of, love, make friends, or hold hands with it...! You reap what you sow. If you do not hate evil (or don’t even know what evil is)—embrace it: for God is sending it for you. Anyone who thinks that there is peace and safety in Christendom today is under profound delusion. However, peace and safety are mantras that are used to scare people into compliance. Everything is done under the false pretenses of “safety” so that everyone can be “safe”. We have to surrender our Constitutional rights to be “safe” and surrender to a dictatorship under auspices of a health pandemic to be “safe”—all the while everything that the corrupt politicians do is the very worst thing for peace and safety.
“3For when they shall say, ‘Peace’ and ‘safety’; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” (I Thessalonians 5)
[The juxtaposition of the two is stark. A woman who is pregnant, near delivery is quite aware that she is pregnant and shall soon give birth to a child. It shall be no surprise when it happens, though the instant that it happens may be with little warning and ahead of schedule, catching her unprepared for the inevitable, at an importune time. The word for thief (which is not always translated properly in English versions) is correctly translated here: klep-teyss refers to a pickpocket, a stealthy cat buglar, possibly even an embezzler—and does not mean robbers, which word refers to banditos, vikings, pirates, or commandos who kick the doors in with gun blazing. Indeed, like the untimely delivery of a child, the wicked shall have God’s Judgment forced upon them as a band of banditos; but, those who are truly God’s, who study the Word, live in godliness, and see the wickedness of society and see the signs of the times, will not be fooled even as if by a skillful pickpocket, who steals so carefully that it is even many months later that you first miss what was stolen.]
Those who are friends of the world are the enemies of God. It is a shameful son who does not obey what his father commanded. It is a shameful son who apologizes to others for what his father is and commands. Those who are ashamed of Him—He is likewise ashamed of them, and they shall hear, “I never knew you!”
It does not matter what any human thinks about what God has commanded. It does not matter if any human thinks that any Command of God is “unimportant” or “outdated” or “unnecessary”. Again, such do not understand the concept of GOD. Nothing exists that God did not create. God OWN all. He is the Ultimate Authority. His Word is Law. No toddler understands the reasons behind the father’s rules. The toddlers ignorance and disagreement is irrelevant. So it is with any human. No human has any standing to “disagree” with the God of the universe. That is why most have chosen to believe that God does not exist;* because if such a person admitted that the God of the Bible exists, then he would be dutybound to obey Him.
[* This is tantamount to a toddler thinking that if he closes his eyes the “bad things” (that he thinks are) hiding in his closet or under his bed cannot see or harm him. In so doing sinful man gambles with his soul for eternity; and will lose.]
God had the captain (general) of the Syrian forces, Naaman, bathe 7 times in the Jordan River (presumably, one bath each day for 7 days). Blessing and deliverance require submission, humility, and obedience. There was nothing “magical” about the number 7 or the Jordan River. It was what God required. So it is with every Command that God gave. While some Commands that God gave are easier to understand the rationale behind why God gave the Command—neither the rationale nor the understanding of it legitimizes the Command. The Command is Right because God commanded it. Faith does not require understanding to believe. Obedience does not require comprehension to obey. If one “obeys” out of mere compulsion and compliance, most probably such a person is yet unregenerate. True obedience is conformity—conversion. If one is truly converted and is indwelled by God’s Holy Spirit, he will love what God loves and hate what God hates without apology. He adopts God’s Will and Desire as his own as the best way and the only way; with no other option to perfection and what God decreed.
“The curse causeless shall not come”;
“be not deceived, God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap”.
“... and be sure your sin will find you out.”
Unlike the mindless, anti-intellectual, irresponsible bumper-sticker “philosophy” that says, “Shit happens!”—no it doesn’t! not literally; not figuratively. Defecation results from someone defacating as a result of having eaten food. It is no mystery. It is not a random act that occurs on its own. It, like everything in life, is the result of “cause and effect”. The same goes for a woman getting pregnant and giving birth. The bumper sticker could apply to both in the modern age, but the general philosophy is false nonetheless in both circumstances.
Actions bear consequences; long-lasting, even permanent consequences. God warned us in advance. God said that he that spareth the rod hateth his son. The rod infers that the parent actually trains up his child in the knowledge of the Lord, morality, obedience, and disciplines him when he rebels. Scripture says, “train up a child when he is young and when he is old he will not depart from it” and “chasten thy son while there is hope”. The destruction the home, the church, society, the nation, all of Christendom is a direct and cumulative effect of violating all that God commanded—large and small. On something like the Space Shuttle or a fighter jet there are no “unimportant”, “unnecessary” parts.
Any one, large or small, can mean life or death. The small brass bolts on a ship
[* They have to be brass; other metals will deteriorate within a day or so, due to hydrolosis and the electricity that is created in the water simply by moving through it. I knew someone who made that mistake and then realized in the middle of the night off the coast of the U.S. that the ship was sinking. He radioed for help and the Coast Guard said “abandon ship”; he replied “Get that chopper here now the water is teeming with sharks”. Fortunately for him and the others on board, the chopper made it in time. Just a tiny little bolt and a nut... how important could it be? Likewise the tiny rudder on a ship, without which you cannot steer. People don’t realize the importance of steering a ship at sea. Likewise, the batteries in a ship or submarine, are small, but of vital importance. With modern rudders, you need electricity to steer. Without a battery a submarine cannot surface and all those aboard stuck at the bottom of the ocean will die of asphixiation. Without batteries or a functional rudder, you cannot steer the ship into the wind and the waves—and the waves will destroy the ship or capsize it, whichever comes first. Such tiny little “laws”... they are not really worth respecting, right...? Likewise, the toes are not the head, but would you like to be toeless? I mean, you could learn to walk, sort of, without them. God has designed a perfect whole. Man has no authority or mental capacity to think that he knows better.]
Life is often serious. You cannot uncrack an egg, unring a bell, or unshoot a gun and you cannot “uncause” an avalanche. Life is not like a computer game where you get “5 more lives”, and even if you lose, you can simply stick in another quarter and “start over”. “...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Jjudgment” (Hebrews 9:27) There are no “do-overs”; you don’t get a “second chance”. Make the right choice the first time; and make certain that all of your children know and make the right choice the first time—and that entails limiting who your friends are and who your children’s friends are. It is not merely a matter of “socialization” (and if you are not a communist why would you want to be socialized?). Our life is not for us as a pleasure cruise, but it is to learn God’s Will and do it; only then will one be blessed. All others who do not share that mindset are not merely distractions, but also “dead weight” that will pull you down. Whether in a footrace, climbing a rugged mountain, in an air balloon that is losing altitude, or swimming for your life, dead weight will turn you into dead weight. Lay it aside. Who cares what the world thinks! You don’t need to ask the Devil for permission to obey God! Choose you this day! Once you lose what you had, it is harder (often impossible) to get it back. Your family, your heritage is your most-priceless treasure that God has entrusted to your care as a steward to preserve it as He commanded. Morality never changes. Those who think it does destroy their house, which destroyed houses cumulatively contributes to the destruction of Christendom. This is why God commanded wickedness to be put out from among us and to not help the wicked, so that they die out. Wickedness is not to be coddled and bred. This is what has destroyed Christendom.
When you find that you have been travelling in the wrong direction for hours, even days, it is heartbreaking (especially if travelling on foot, up and down mountains)... but the only thing to do is turn around, make up for lost time, and get back on the right road. Unless you are simply content to die where you are.
This is the situation in which we find ourselves in Christendom, and the corrupt, treasonous, and alien politicians throw millions of dollars to perverse “think tanks” to concoct the most-absurd answers which declare anything but the truth to be the reason for the problem; and anything but the truth to be the solution to the problem. According to their perverse agenda, they claim that the solution to the problem is to create more of the problem itself. Truly the blind lead the blind (and quite often, the goats, swine, and wolves lead the sheep to the slaughter, convincing them that it is the safest place to be, and that the slaughter-house manager only has their very best interests at heart).
“How long halt ye between two opinions? if Yahweh be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him.” (I Kings 18:21)
“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My Mouth.” (Revelation 3:16)
[That is “ye shall have no part in Me”; that is, “ye shall be rejected”. Again, Christ is not Saviour of those for whom He is not LORD. Again, if there are no signs of life, there was no regeneration. The majority of Christians are merely members of a humanistic pseudo-spiritual country club. Indeed, they shall say to Him on the Day of Judgment: “but did we not do all these wonderful works in Thy Name?” (a Name modern “Christians” don’t even know, “Christ” is not His Name, it is a Title) and Christ shall reply, “I never knew you. Depart from Me ye that work iniquity”. The rendering of this Greek word as “iniquity” is a mistranslation; the Greek is anomia, literally, “no law” or “without law” and therefore, means, “lawlessness”. Again John declared that those who say that they know God (the majority of “Christians”) and keep not His Commandments are liars: they do NOT know God and the Truth (Christ Jesus said, “I am the Truth” and called the Holy Spirit “the Spirit of Truth) is not in them. Can a person be saved, converted, regenerated, redeemed, can he be a “Christian” if he does not know God and if Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit are not in him...? Of course NOT! That is why Christ said that MANY on the Day of Judgment who thought that they were “Christians” will hear “I never knew you”. Jesus said, “If ye love Me keep My Commandments”. Christ had no commandments of His own, but said that His were the very same as the Father’s; He came to do not His own will, but the Father’s. Christ said, “If ye keep My Commandments ye shall abide in My Love even as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and abide in His Love”. If you don’t keep God’s Commandments you do not abide in His Love and you do not love Him. Christ said,
“17Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least Commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the ‘least’ in the Kingdom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called ‘great’ in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 5)
The Prophets are important, because they explain WHO God’s people are and God’s unchanging Plan for them.
WHY do “Christians” believe the VERY OPPOSITE of what Christ said? —either because they are not His sheep (Christ said “My sheep know My Voice and follow [obey] Me... the voice of a stranger they will not follow”) or they are really, really stupid. However, there is a cure for stupidity, it is call truth. Recognizing the problem is the first step to deliverance. Go ahead, declare it out loud, “I am an ignoramus!” It is liberating. Do it, right where you are. If anyone looks at you, simply smile and say, “I indeed am an ignoramus. Admitting the problem is the first step to overcoming it. I am an ignoramus, but by the Grace of God I am a recovering ignoramus. What about you?” Satan wants to keep God’s people in rebellion, thinking that God abolished His Law! (which claim is unbiblical and anti-intellectual and the only people who can believe such foolishness are those who DO NOT KNOW GOD)—because when a Christian has unconfessed, unrepented sin in his life—God does not hear His prayers, will not bless, protect, or deliver—and in fact the oppression and danger is itself Judgment from God to get His child’s attention and lead him to repent: or to remove him from this life as “dead wood” on the Family Tree.
The word heaven in “heaven and earth” refers to the second heavens, that is the planetary heavens (the first is merely our sky or atmosphere around earth). The word Heaven in the phrase “the Kingdom of Heaven” refers to the Third Heaven, the Seat of God’s Power, but the Kingdom itself refers to the colony of Heaven on earth, the Kingdom of God on earth (which has not yet begun, though the seeds have been planted in the hearts of God’s elect).
Those who think that this verse (18) says that the Law will be abolished once heaven and earth pass away cannot think clearly and engage in a false inference. The verse says that as long as heaven and earth exist, not a jot or tittle of the Law shall pass—but it does not say that once heaven and earth pass the Law will also. The Word of God endureth forever. The Law of the Lord is Perfect... it will continue on. There is no other “morality”. It will always be sin to have other gods, take Yahweh’s Name in vain, violate the Sabbath, disrepect ones parents (possibly also inferring ancestors), steal, bear false witness against a kinsman in court, commit adultery, murder, etc.
As I point out in my book, Ten Commandments for Youth, the Ten Commandments are not merely ten individual commands; they are Ten Categories of Commands under which each Command of God is organized. They are all interrelated. To violate one causes one to be guilty of all. Only dullards then think that immorality / lawlessness is the preferred option because in this life perfection is impossible. This is also why people are obese and whoremongers—because they think that it is an option to “give up” doing what they know is right. God declares, “to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin”. Ignorant sin is likewise, also sin, but one cannot repent of it until one realizes his guilt; however, sinning knowingly without repentance is a double sin and bears greater Judgment.
Furthermore, Hebrews 10:26,27 is not referring to “works-oriented” salvation (those who never got the hang of the children’s game “Simon Sez” are easily fooled). Those who approach a topic with the wrong mindset will always be confused. If one does not understand “cause and effect” he will only babble foolishness. Walking in your father’s footsteps does not cause you to be conceived. You were conceived by the will and act of your father in procreation. Walking in your father’s footsteps establishes you as an honorable son, whom the father will bless and will cause to inherit of Him (which is what v.19 of Matthew 5 is referring to—placement, a position of honor in the Kingdom; obedience is not what gets you “into” the Kingdom; obedience is a sign of regeneration, a by-product of true life).
In the above passage of Hebrews, confusion is dissipated when one reads with comprehension. “Coming to the knowledge of the truth” is not the same as “conversion”. What the passage is referring to is someone (like the rich young ruler who went away disappointed) who was “window shopping” but did not believe the product to be worth the price and passed on without making it his.
Again, breaking or keeping the Commandments—even the very least (you know... all those “unimportant” Commands that the average Christian ignores thinking that they don’t matter) is not what grants you entrance to the Kingdom: being regenerated by God’s Holy Spirit is what grants you entrance. However, honorable obedience is what establishes rank. Rebellion and disobedience confer a place of dishonor—that is, if a person actually makes it across the threshold. As we saw, there will be MANY who thought that they were “Christians” who will be rejected because of their violation of God’s Law: which shows that they did not even know God (“god” to them was a superstition invented in their own mind, according to their own humanistic notions) and the Holy Spirit of Christ was not in them.
Finally, v.20 is not referring to “works-oriented” salvation either. Again, those who know how to play Simon Sez are not easily fooled. There is one, simple rule: GOD SEZ! God is Immutable and Perfect. He does not change. His Word does not change. If you think there is a contradiction you are confused. The only valid interpretation is the one the finds the harmony. God will not contradict Himself. Those who have only a superficial understanding of the Scriptures walk groping in darkness, with their eyes having never been healed of blindness. God opposeth the proud but given grace to the humble. Those who read the Word of God “looking for” error or “exceptions” will find PLENTY of them, because they are unworthy of the truth and God has sent them delusion to believe a lie.
[Note: Looking for error to deny that the Bible is true is entirely different than looking for the resolutions of seeming contradictions to prove that the Bible is true and man is confused.]
The resolution to v.20 (and in the 170 books that I have written and annotated, I explain nearly every single “exception” or “contradiction” that any spiritually esotropic person thinks that he sees) is quite simple. First of all the “righteousness” of the Pharisees in general was a myth. The majority were “con-men”, as Christ exposed them as white-washed sepulchres full of dead men’s bones”. Does that sound “righteous” to you? They made a great show of pretence in the following the smallest of details (like measuring out an exact tithe of their small herbs, such as mint, anise, and cumin—to make sure that they did not give God one more leaf than they thought was rightfully His) when people were watching... but in secret violated every Command and lived no different than the wicked; and they themselves were wicked, but they fooled the average person (even today, as the average person is utterly oblivious to the corruption and evil of the majority of their “respected” politicians, pastors, professors, journalists, etc.).
Regardless, since the average Israelite in Christ’s day “thought” that the Pharisees were “righteous”, that is the element that is important in the main lesson. Assuming that the Pharisees kept the Law, great and small, in secret as well as in public, HOW can your righteousness exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees if their righteousness was true? —only by being clothed in the Righteousness of Christ, only by being filled by the Holy Spirit and walking in the Spirit where the Spirit is going: for the Holy Spirit will NOT lead a person to violate the Law that God Commanded to a thousand generations (which is a figure of speech for “eternity”; regardless, it has only been about 186 generations from Adam to now... “gonna be awhile...? got a Snickers...?” Simon Sez God’s Law has not been abolished).
Paul gives us the answer, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him.” (Colossians 2:6) HOW did you receive Christ? —by God’s Grace and not of yourselves, through faith that originates in God that God gave you with which you believe and live; and that not of yourselves... even as you were conceived and born as a result of nothing that you did. Christ said I am the true Vine and ye are the branches and My Father is the Husbandman (Vinyardist). What “work” do branches do in order to produce fruit? —nothing. They produce fruit because they are attached to the vine (trunk, main leader). So also will any person, if truly a Christian, if truly indwelled by the Holy Spirit, if truly regenerated will produce Christ’s Fruit: Obedience. Those who do not have merely had "an emotional experience", and possibly belong to a humanistic pseudo-spiritual country club; but they are unregenerate / uncoverted. God makes the Rules, establishes reality. The only sane response is to submit to what God commanded and ordained; to not do so, to argue with God, merely demonstrates unregeneracy. Every tree is known by its fruit. Can you imagine a scenario in which a branch on a grape vine is telling its Maker, its Creator, who designed and created it and established the science upon which it exists, that He does not know what He is talking about...? God chooses man’s delusions.
First John defines sin: “sin is transgression of the Law”. The Epistles of John were the last books of the Bible to written; written even after Revelation; written after John was released from exile on the Isle of Patmos. If the Law had been abolished it would be impossible for anyone to sin; therefore, there would be nothing that anyone needed to repent of or to; nothing to ask forgiveness for; no reason to be “saved”. But, all you need to remember is Simon Sez. Christ said that He did NOT come to abolish that Law and that not one jot or tittle would be abolished. Why do you believe anyone other than Christ Jesus? The only reason would be that you are not His sheep or that you are following a false christ, a false shepherd—and you need to learn the Voice of the True Shepherd and actually be regenerated by the Holy Spirit so that you can know it. “Marvel not if the world hate you”, Christ said. The world will hate you if your doctrine is pure. True Christianity is Doctrine—every Word that proceeded out of the Mouth of God. “Doctrineless Christianty” is not Christianity, but humanism. God commanded, “Ye who love the Lord hate evil”. If you don’t hate evil, you don’t love the Lord—you don’t even know Him. You have no comprehension of Holiness. God does not merely “love the sinner but hate the sin”—that is not Christian doctrine, but humanism popularized by the HINDU Gandhi. God hateth THE SOUL that sinneth. It is not “the sin” that shall be cast into Hell, but the sinner”. Truly, “My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge”. Christ is not Gandhi...! Christ is not a friend of the world. The world hates the True God and the world hates True Doctrine. True Doctrine—True Theology, has its foundation and focus on GOD. Humanism centers around man and his “feelings” and what he “thinks” is “fair”.]
Choose you this day! Christendom is being destroyed because alleged “Christians” won’t stand up for what is right. They are cowards. They are apathetic and don’t really care. They do not realize that we are in a war; they think that they are on a perpetual vacation and their only desire is to be entertained—even by those who hate and blaspheme the Son of God whom they claim to love. Each time that a “Christian” sees evil in his house, community, church, etc., and says and does nothing, he denies Christ. Denying or confessing Christ is not limply assenting that you know about Him or “like” Him. It is doing and saying what He would have done. It is being one with Him. It is being about Your Father’s Business as He would have been. Those who have never studied the Reformation, the Reformers, the Doctrine of the Reformation, the history of the peoples of Christendom, the American Revolution, the philosophy of the American Revolution—don’t know who they are, don’t know where they came from, don’t know how or why to preserve it, and don’t care. If you don’t care then just go join the enemy and stop pretending.
Samuel Adams in his speech at the Philadelphia State House, on August 1, 1776, declared:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
However... GOD will not be so forgiving or forgetful. Christ said if you are not with Him—doing the very work that He is doing, then you are against Him undoing His work; and such a person is called “the enemy”. It matters not your intentions, if you have been fooled into doing the opposite that Christ commanded. You are still the enemy; you are helping destroy Christendom; you are helping rape the bride of Christ and murder God’s children, if you have violated Christ’s Command to “give not that which is holy to the dogs and cast not pearls before swine, lest they turn and trample and rend you”. Those watchmen who have fallen asleep, or who are too cowardly to sound the alarm, are just as guilty as those traitors who are opening the gates to the barbarians, putridly thinking that it is God’s Will for the enemy to flood in so that we can “evangelize” them; though Christ forbade it. Those who don’t know the difference between us and them are functionally the enemy. Those who marry themselves to the enemy are the enemy. God commanded separation; those who are friends with the world embrace Babylon (confusion by mixing).
How much is enough? At what point will “Christians” truly repent...? if they even understand what repentance actually is (and it is not merely a “feeling”). The greatest confederation of kindred nations, that were once one people of one faith, the greatest nations on earth who comprised Christendom has been destroyed by violation of everything that God commanded (we are the feet and toes of iron mingled with clay, which represents integration—the final kingdom of this earth’s age which Christ despises and will soon destroy; and every great empire fell due to integration and homoperversion, which go hand in hand, the former blazing the trail for the latter, the end stages of terminal death). How many rapes, how many murders, how many stolen cities, how much filth, corruption, perversion, debt, squalor, disease, apathy, and loss is enough?
What will it take for God’s people to truly repent? —to turn from their sin (understanding what sin is, that the Law was not abolished—not one jot or tittle, that morality never changes and what God declared to be sin and abominations 4,000 years ago still are today and every will be, and what modern society believes to the contrary is utterly irrelevant), which means to STOP that sin, and obey the Commandment, its opposite, without which there is no repentance. After turning from all that God forbade, and turning to all that God commanded, His people must confess their sin, ask forgiveness for it and in newness of life actually obey what God commanded demonstrating there was actually a change...? When godly King Josiah heard the Law of God read (a copy of which had been secreted in a hollow wall or in the floor of the Temple, to prevent it being discovered and destroyed by his grandfather King Manasseh, during his early evil days), and Josiah realized HOW FAR they had departed from what God commanded, he did not simply say, “Oh well, carry on... there is too much to change; God requires too much; God will simply have to conform to us and our lifestyle”. NO. He RENT his garments and declared a national fast for repentance. Scripture says, “rend not [merely] your garments, but rend your heart [also]”. Rending your garment out of horror demonstrates extreme anguish and despair. But one who is truly so affected does not merely then put on a new garment. If he does, it was all for show and merely a passing emotional affectation. Those who love God will truly repent and perform all of that which repentance demands. Repentance causes change of thinking and change of actions—including making things right in light of all the years of living in sin: like paying the bar tab or long running general store bill; or like Zaccheus in paying restitution to all those whom he defrauded. Are we not to pay restitution to God? Is He of no importance? If you are truly regenerated you are not your own, but God’s. Christ paid the Sacrifice to propitiate God’s Wrath and Justice and Holiness; as a result you should offer your life as a living sacrifice—and that entails obeying what God commanded. There is no other morality. Morality never changes. What changes is people, changing to be like the perverse world.
What will it take for God’s people in Christendom to truly repent? the rape of all their daughters? the murder of all their sons? the destruction of thousands of years of ancestry and heritage? the loss of all their wealth, the cities their ancestors founded and sacrificed to build, their entire nation—all of Christendom...! the loss of health, the loss of freedom. Can you not tell that all of life (prosperity, health, freedom, true love) has dried up like a plant in dry ground that has received no water and has shriveled up and died? —but when God’s people truly repent (II Chronicles 7:14) God will cause the desert will blossom as a rose! Can you not sense in Christendom (which was the only bulwark against the heathen hordes and their evil—and as we violated what God commanded, we absorbed them and have been destroyed) the utter removal of God’s Holy Spirit, as when the waters of the coastline eerily withdraw out to sea, abandoning the shore, only to confederate with the oncoming tsunami to return to the shore and beyond with vengeance...? When will you care? When will you do something? —starting with falling on your knees and then your flat on your face prostrate before God once you realize that you have lost everything, and possibly even your soul: for if you live as if you are your own person, then you were not bought with a price, you were not redeemed; if you live in violation of all that God commanded you were not regenerated unto new life and you are yet unregenerate. Fools hoot and holler and celebrate and cheer and even get into fights, spend untold thousands of dollars all over watching a bunch of immoral alien criminals playing with a ball, yet they do nothing to support true ministries that are holding the torch high in the blackest darkness Christendom has ever faced; they do nothing to stand up for freedom when traitorous politicians blatantly steal our nation from us and open the floodgates to the enemies of Christ to give our nation—to give Christendom to the savages. So called “Christians” will talk about their son and grandson, or their new car, or their dog, or their favorite restaurant, or retell events from the sports savages that they were watching... but they will not bear testimony to the truth, for freedom, for their God, because they don’t really know Him and they don’t really care.
All sin is ultimately and against God. Concerning his sin with Bathsheba and his sin in the aftermath, David declared, “Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Thy Sight” (Psalm 51:4). God is Master. A sin against a slave of the Master is a sin against the Master. Those who have liberated themselves from God, their Master (and retain Him merely as a fetish, a folkway, a quaint bit of nostalgia) will have no one to avenge them when they are wronged, abused, oppressed, or violated; neither are they redeemed by Christ, since they live as if they are their own, and not bought with a price.
No Commandment that God gave is “unimportant”. NONE are a matter of “personal preference” if “it works for you”. One Law for all His people is what God commanded: from the chiefest of His people to the lowliest of His people. Morality is the same from top to bottom. Those who ignore the sin in others are guilty before God as accomplices. All sin is sin. All sin breaks fellowship and blocks prayers and blessing. All sin needs to be repented of. They are not the “Ten Options” and there are not merely 10 of them.
“12 ‘Therefore also now’, saith the LORD, ‘turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13And rend your heart, and not [only] your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil [Judgment that you deserve]. 14Who knoweth if He will return and repent [of the Judgment, if you repent of your sins], and [if instead of Judgment, He may] leave a blessing behind Him; [therefore, why do you not offer] even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?” (Joel 2)
God is Gracious and Merciful—IF you repent. Do not tempt Him; do not test the limits of His Grace and Mercy, for He also is Holy and Just. As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently declared, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is Just and that His Justice cannot sleep forever”. Indeed,
“For He saith, ‘I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the Day of Salvation have I succoured thee: behold, Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the Day of Salvation.” (II Corinthians 6:2)
“37Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, ‘To day if ye will hear His Voice, 8Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9When your fathers tempted Me, proved Me, and saw My Works forty years. 10Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, “They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known My Ways. 11So I sware in My Wrath, ‘They shall not enter into My Rest’”.’) 12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the Living God. 13But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15While it is said, ‘To day if ye will hear His Voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation’. .... 47Again, He limiteth a certain day, saying in David, ‘To day’, after so long a time; as it is said, ‘To day if ye will hear His Voice, harden not your hearts’.” (Hebrews)
[Understand: If one does nothing, turns from hearing the truth, and imagines that he has done nothing for which he needs to repent—he has hardened his heart; he is dead to the things of God. Everyone needs to repent before God—DAILY. Consider how the godly Nehemiah prayed in the opening of his Book. Consider how Simon Peter (who was following Christ in full time ministry—what do you do in your life?), when he realized that Christ was the Son of God, the Messiah, responded: “Depart from Me, for I am an unclean man”. Peter felt ashamed, knowing his own sinfulness, and recoiled in genuine humility being the Presence of a Holy God. Imagine someone who fell into a sceptic tank, and was covered with feces, being aghast at the prospect of having to appear before Royalty. Most “Christians” have no concept of Holiness; and therefore, they have no concept of their own sinfulness; and therefore, they have no fear of God in them. Were the Holy Spirit in them these concepts would not be foreign to them.]
He that hath ears to hear... let him hear...
“Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.” (Matthew 3:8)
“23For if any be a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass [mirror]: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way [that is, unchanged], and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect Law of Liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” (James 1)
“For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:2)
Righteousness NEVER came by the Law. That notion is a distraction, a smokescreen, intended to mislead the less astute. That is like saying that because an anvil cannot be used as a pole to vault yourself over the pole in a pole vault competition, that therefore the anvil has no valid use. That truly is as mindless as the argument that because keeping the Law does not save you that there is no reason to keep it. Those who believe such are yet unregenerate. We obey the Law of God because He commanded us to, and that is what is expected of His children, “Be holy as I am Holy”. We are stained with sin, from the sin-contaminated stream from Adam, and therefore, not only are we unable to obey perfectly all that God commanded, but we are actually dead and need to be regenerated. Dead men don’t choose to come back to life. Nonexistent fetuses don’t choose to be conceived. God calls forth and those whom He calls irresistably obey. When Christ forgave sin, He declared, “Go and sin no more”. Those who are regenerated are to walk in newness of life. “He that saith [“claimeth” that] he abideth in Him [Christ] ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.” (I John 2:6) How did Christ walk...? He “was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).
Contrary to what the Apostate Church teaches (nearly everything that it teaches is the very opposite of what the Word of God says), the “Law of Liberty” is NOT “the freedom to sin”. GOD FORBID! It is the freedom TO NOT SIN by the Grace and Power of God through the Holy Spirit. “To be carnally minded is death; to be spiritually minded is life and peace”. The word “spiritual(ly)” in Scripture does not refer to some inspirational idea. It refers to TRUE LIFE.
Stop supporting the enemy. Stop supporting those who hate Christ, who hate God, who hate the Truth, who celebrate perversion. Stop frequenting their establishments (including “churches” that preach a world-friendly humanism), stop buying their products, stop watching, listening, and following them. Choose you this day. Support those who preach the Full Counsel of the Word of God and who are standing in the gap—and stand with them.

Can anyone say “Amen”...? Does anyone have a heart not made of stone? Do you not grieve with me in the loss of Christendom and the destruction of our people and the pollution of our faith, our holy places, our neighborhoods, our cities, our nation, the destruction of our children and heritage? Do you not cry out as the martyred saints under the altar (under the altar, because that’s where the holy ashes are deposited after being sacrificed),
“How long, O Lord, Holy and True, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” (Revelation 6:10)
Do you not hate evil? Like just Lot, are you not vexed by it? Why do you tolerate it? Why do you remain silent? Do you pray imprecatory prayers upon the wicked, the enemies of Christianity, each time they flaunt their evil and destroy the lives of God’s people? Why not? The Christian Church has become effeminate by a spurious interpretation of many passages of Scripture, and they are neutered into sterility. God never told us to love HIS enemies. Christ said that we are to pray for our personal enemies, that is, our kinsmen with whom we may be at odds.* God FORBADE helping or doing good unto HIS enemies. If you don’t know the difference between sheep, and swine and wolves and serpents... you don’t belong in the sheepfold.

Every time I see evil, or learn of it in a news report, I pray, “Father, if any of these persons that are guilty are Your children, grant them the gift of repentance unto salvation; but if they are not Your children or if they are not ordained unto life, then destroy them swiftly off the face of the earth so that they can no longer violate Your children”. In many cases, you should know whether they are God’s people or not; in times you don’t you can pray as I do. Understand. God is not like sinful, double-minded, weak, vascilating, polluted men. God does not love whom He hates. God will not damn those whom He loves. God is not a confused bundle of emotions. If you have read this far and it is not sinking in... pray and ask God to impart Truth unto your mind. The Word of God is spiritual (true life) and it must be understood spiritually—and it is not in our nature to understand because we are dead in trespasses and sin. The Holy Spirit will lead into Truth those who will actually follow.
God commanded us to hate evil. Since His people refuse to, He is sending more and more evil until they learn to hate it, or until it kills them. God is culling His herd down to those who truly love Him.
God save Your people! Pour Your Holy Spirit out upon Your people to convict them of sin—to convict them with the knowledge of what sin is and their guiltiness of it; and grant them the Spirit of Repentance unto Life and unto obedience so that You will spare them the Evil / Judgment to come when You once more shake heaven and earth. Pour Your Holy Spirit out without measure upon Your people and pour out a pestilence upon the rest, a pestilence the likes of which this wicked world has never seen!
Note: The Promises of Prayer are only extended to those of God’s people who live in obedience (I John 3:22). Furthermore, there is Power and Promise in confederated prayer among kinsmen of like mind (Matthew 18:19). If you agree with me, I cannot know that you agree with me unless you tell me that you agree with me. It is that simple. You may not think it important, but then again, if you think so you have not been paying attention. It is what God declared is required. “Be it unto you according to your faith”; but if that faith is of God it will demonstrate itself in obedience to the Will of God. An email is really a very simple act of faith, even as is prayer. As Christendom burns all around us, do you not pray with each breath? I do.
[Note: Psalm 91, the “Secret Place” of the Most High is a life of obedience. Note: In Revelation 12:17; 14:12 the only ones who will survive the Wrath to come are those who keep the Commandments of God and have the Faith / Testimony of Christ Jesus. The “patience of the saints” would better be rendered, the perseverence of the saints or the endurance of the saints.]
