Stressed out Believers can turn the corner

In this seriously wicked generation with all the problems that exist it’s very easy to become so angry, so sorrowful, so sad, becoming so stressed out just living day to day that you feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. Demonic forces are wearing down many Saints through the worlds circumstances and it sometimes feels like a dark cloud is hovering around you at times. You may have lost your joy, and happiness seems like a pipe dream, so far away. If this is what you’ve been experiencing, your not alone as many feel the dark clouds approaching. This my friends is the beginning of the end times when the love of hearts begin to grow cold because lawlessness abounds. And it’s not just lawlessness, it’s like perversion is sweeping across the world and major immorality and absolute craziness or should I say insanity has gripped the human race. God is revealing hidden secrets and exposing the worldwide pedophilia ring, human trafficking and slavery and it appears this is just the beginning of more to come. Is it any wonder that we shake our heads in disbelief at the news cycles and become so upset that we just start to tune everything out. This is exactly what the enemy of our souls wants us to do, to become so disenchanted that we check out and begin to tolerate anything and everything and compromise our deep heartfelt beliefs. When that happens the enemy has won and we have lost; don’t let that happen happen to you. It’s time to take a stand for righteousness and decency and truth and love.

I’ve been saying for a long time what the Bible says that perilous times are coming in the last days and we have arrived and the worst is still out in the distance headed our way. Doom and gloom? It’s depends on where your heart and your faith is. Didn’t Jesus say I have warned you in advance so that you will believe when you see all these things taking place? We know what’s coming by the word so this shouldn’t be a shock or surprise to us. But Jesus also said don’t fear because I have overcome the world and will never leave you nor forsake you. Depression comes mainly from one source and it’s you. It’s looking inward instead of living by faith knowing Jesus is with us through it all; all trials, all testing and all blessings even until death. And by the way there is no death for the redeemed, it’s just leaving this world and going to be with King Jesus where we will await for His coming and receive our glorified new bodies, where sin doesn’t exist and love abounds. Have you forgotten what joy awaits us?

Be of good courage my brothers and sisters, only live for Jesus and let your light shine wherever you go and whatever you do as there is a dying world that needs Jesus and you may be the only one a stranger will listen too concerning salvation. I say be on your toes looking for a divine appointment that God has set up just for you to witness His mercy and Grace. Why would you go to heaven and let your neighbor go to Hell? Be ready everyday to share the hope what resides within you. Jesus purchased our souls with His Blood as we believe and confess His name and repent of our sins. Remember when you were just like them living in the world full of sin and addictions and living just for yourself feeling miserable and defeated? Well then it’s time to rejoice, give your testimony and lead them to Jesus Christ. The only thing that will matter in a hundred years is what you do today for the gospel. For where your treasure is there will your heart be also. Where is your treasure? There is no one like Jesus, the only begotten Son of God who gives us the Holy Spirit as a pledge for our coming redemption…

Dumb unto death ( people perish for lack of knowledge)

There’s only one person that can get things under control and that’s Jesus. He is the Christ the only begotten Son of the living God who IS and who WAS and is to Come Again. He has always been and His kingdom will never end. This kingdom is not of this world but everyone is invited to become a part of it to become a stone of many building the house of God, Jesus being the Chief cornerstone. All belong to Him and He belongs to God.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that lhas been made. 4In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

(John 1-5)

9The true Light who gives light to every man was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. 11He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12But to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of blood, nor of the desire or will of man, but born of God. (John 1:11-13)

14The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father,b full of grace and truth.

15John testified concerning Him. He cried out, saying, “This is He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because He was before me.’”

16From His fullness we have all received grace upon grace. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is at the Father’s side, has made Him known.

All of us must be born again and receive His Spirit when we believe to see the kingdom of heaven and to live forever with our Creator in a new heaven and new earth as this earth will burn up. ( Revelation) We must learn we must love the Lord our God with all our hearts, with all our minds with all our strength and love our neighbor as ourselves. Jesus said do this and you will live eternally. This is the greatest commandment. In our own strength this is impossible, but with the Holy Spirit all things are possible.

This all is the great mystery from God to mankind that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life and it is the one who is faithful till the end that will be saved not loving their own life but surrendering to Jesus and say to Him I’m a sinner, forgive me and save me and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Jesus sealed the new covenant with His blood and said make disciples teaching them to observe all thing I have taught and baptize then in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Where are you today, right now, this very moment? Where do you stand with Jesus? Will you make it? You can and will be self assured in your own heart if you repent and call on His name. Don’t love the world or the things in the world, just love God with all your heart and we will meet on that beautiful shore and be engulfed with the love of God and each other…..and guard your heart for the times are evil…

The Evangelical Church is duped by Israel’s propaganda

This will undoubtedly upset some of my friends, but truth is truth. Jesus warned us three times “do not be deceived” and the Apostle Paul said “ beware of wolves in sheep clothing who will enter your assemblies and spread heresies and false teachings”

This has been happening since the late forties and especially the past several years when John Hagee formed CUFI or Christians United for Israel. Since that time the majority of evangelical churches have become all about Israel instead of all about the kingdom of God. They have become all about the Jews and their support instead of all about Jesus and supporting His gospel. It’s come to the point where many churches display the Star of David flag next to the American flag on pulpit stages and sometimes even the Star of David flag all alone. They preach the gospel of propaganda concerning Israel although they won’t say a word about America and the immorality and socialist/communist propaganda lead by the left. John Hagee won’t even mention the name of Jesus outside of his church for fear of offending the Jews or Israel. We should be going to worship Jesus not listen to propaganda about Israel and have to stare at the occultism of the Star of David flag. The flag is occult and comes from their worship of the false god moloch the very reason they lost their land in the first place and were scattered throughout the world. Read it for yourself but most are too lazy to even read their bible anymore and that’s why they are so easily deceived.

All these lies the Zionist spout out to try to control the Christians is crazy starting with “ whoever blesses you will be blessed and whoever curses you will be cursed” NO it is talking about Abraham back then not Israel today. Abraham was not even a Jew!! Neither was Isaac or Jacob!! The Jewish nation has not even been formed till many years later so blessings and cursing have nothing to do with Israel. Blessings and cursing have to do with righteousness, living and serving God and His Son Jesus and following the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles. Jews hate Jesus and Christians for the most part, they just want you to visit Israel and spend your money and send your sons to die on the battlefield instead of their own. They provoke America to fight the Middle East to expand their Territories and boundaries. And all our congressmen and senators know if they don’t support political Israel the money will not flow and be cut off to their campaigns. The largest lobbying done in Washington is by Israel. Mention Jesus to a Jew in Israel and you’ll be spit upon beat or even thrown in Jail for proselytizing.

And all the while Arab Christians and Palestinians have been killed and the Jews have systematically taken their properties away and it’s still going on today. Land taken away that has been in their family for decades. Political Israel has virtually blocked the city of Bethlehem and walled it so Christians have a very hard time visiting there and the money made by tourism for Palestinian Christians has dried up to the point of poverty. You can research all of this, it’s true. And now Israel is deporting Ethiopian Jews for one reason because they’re black. Israel is racist. And that’s not all.

The number one destination for homosexuals and lesbians and transgender from all over the world go to Tel Aviv Israel once a year to celebrate and party for two weeks. So much for Israel being the Holy Land, it’s far from it. This is why two thirds of Israel Will be wipe out in the Tribulation. A remnant will be saved by knowing Jesus as Savior and Lord. Hagee and many Zionist say Israel doesn’t need to be born again and confess Jesus because they are the chosen people. That’s a lie, a total lie, “ no man comes to the father except by me” Jesus said. So everyone must believe in Jesus to be saved, all races, all nations on the earth.

Abraham was told all the nations of the earth would be blessed through his seed, thats Jesus, it didn’t say seeds plural it singular seed meaning One seed Jesus.

The Jews have infiltrated government, media and hollywood, banking, businesses, courts and our military. And now the Muslims are trying to do the same but their goal is killing Christianity around the world and kidnapping and raping our children. Think not? Look at the UK and what evil was exposed by Tommy Robinson. Do you have a clue what’s going on in the world? The same will happen to America if we don’t fight the fight of faith and pray as our country is being lost.

Now we must love the Jews and the Muslims even though they hate us as Christians but we must fight for this nation for the truth and justice and the future of our children and grandchildren. Get in the fight! Stop believing MSM who lull you to sleep and seek out truth.

Hatred of evil is not anti-Semitism nor Muslim bashing, hatred of evil and lies like globalization and socialism is just and loving truth will keep your soul aware of Satan’s Schemes and avoid them by prayer and supplication to the Lord. Jesus is Lord and there is no other…

Lastly we do not have Judeo Christian values. There is no such thing, it’s either Christian or Judeo. Jews do not believe in Jesus as the Son of God, Christians do. Jews are anti-Christ because everyone that denies Jesus is anti-Christ the Bible says. Jews want a third temple so they can slaughter bulls and goats and some ignorant Christians are all for this evil heresy. Jesus shed His blood for our sins, His blood of the new covenant, the old covenant is no longer valid. Get a grip people and study your bible and make disciples baptizing them in the name of the father the son and the Holy Spirit.

God’s Final Word in His Son

1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

      5For to which of the angels did He ever say,

            “YOU ARE MY SON,

            TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU”?

            And again,

            “I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM

            AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME”? (Hebrews 1:1-5)

Many people don’t realize that pre-incarnate Jesus has always been there from the beginning with God and in fact God made everything, this world, this universe, and every single thing that exists, whether seen or unseen through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the great “I Am” and the word. John says it this way “ 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)

Back to Hebrews 1:3 “Jesus is the Exact representation of the Fathers nature and Jesus is the one who upholds ALL things by the Word of His Power.”In other words, everything in the universe works by the WORD of Jesus. The sun, the moon and the stars all obey His Word thus orbiting and obeying His word.

So you realize that:

“While the earth remains,

Seedtime and harvest,

And cold and heat,

And summer and winter,

And Day and Night

Shall NOT Cease.”(Genesis 8:22) So much for global warming destroying the planet. I’ll take the word of God over anyone else’s doomsday theory’s. At the end of time though, this world will be burned up and God will roll up this universe like a robe the Bible says. Because God Has a new universe and new earth and a new Jerusalem for us at the end of time. (Revelation 21:1,2) Check it out:

“But about the Son He says:

“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever,

and justice is the scepter of Your kingdom.

9You have loved righteousness

and hated wickedness;

therefore God(Jesus)Your God(The Father) has anointed You

above Your companions with the oil of joy.”

10And:

“In the beginning, O Lord, You laid the foundations of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of Your hands.

11They will perish, but You remain;

they will all wear out like a garment.

12You will roll them up like a robe;

like a garmentf they will be changed;

but You remain the same,

and Your years will never end.”

( Hebrews 1:8-12)

So you see Jesus is everything, He IS and was and is to come He’s always been there with the father and even before the foundation of the world He decided He would lower Himself a little lower than the angels and empty Himself into Mary by the Holy Spirit and become flesh so He could offer up Himself with His blood to make purification of sins. Now when we believe with our hearts and confess with our mouths after repenting and show our good works in keeping with our repentance we are saved and being baptized we die to sin by faith and we will also be raised up in the resurrection to live forever as immortals, never to sin again, to be with the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and the Angels forever and ever and ever.

All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. The price has been paid, His work is finished, your sins are forgiven if you repent and call on His name and stay faithful to the end. Father God gave His only begotten Son because He loves you and wants you with Him forever. Surrender to Jesus and I’ll see you there someday in the glorious New Jerusalem that sits on a new earth…..It has never even been imagined or even entered the heart of man what glory God has for us who are faithful to the end….

If you lose your faith will baptism still save you?

What kind of question is that you say? You would be surprised how many people actually believe it. The truth is we walk by faith, not by sight and salvation requires us to keep our faith to the very end of our lives. The Bible says many will fall away from the faith in the last days listening to doctrines of Demons. In my last blog I discussed how we are credited righteous by God when we believe from our hearts in Jesus Christ as the Son, but how important is baptism? I would venture to say so many people don’t understand baptism and many never even get baptized even though Jesus commanded it right before he went up into heaven after the resurrection. Let’s take a look….

In Colossians 2:11-15 it states:” 11In Him you were also circumcised in the putting off of your sinful nature, with the circumcision performed by Christ and not by human hands. 12And having been buried with Him in baptism, you were raised with Him through your faith in the power of God, who raised Him from the dead.

13When you were dead in your trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our trespasses, 14having canceled the debt ascribed to us in the decrees that stood against us. He took it away, nailing it to the cross! 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. So here we see Jesus actually removes the body of our flesh by the spirit; in other words Baptism represents Removal, a putting off or laying aside of our sinful nature by FAITH when we are baptized. Thing is baptism is as much as an act of faith as believing in Jesus, the trouble is people aren’t taught that and come up out of the water just like they went in with absolutely no change in their lives and showing no fruit for the experience. You don’t get baptized to join a church or to follow a doctrine, you get baptized because Jesus said to do it. It involves believing because your baptized WITH Jesus you will be raised up WITH Jesus by faith. Can you make the resurrection then without baptism? You decide. The Bible says we are buried with Christ and rise with Christ. Immersion is the Greek form of the word baptized so I don’t think sprinkling counts. So you sprinkle dirt on a body? No you bury it. Stay with me here….

Romans 2:28 states “ 29But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God. Baptism is a circumcision from your old life as a a sinner cutting off your old lifestyles and living with a new heart and mind. “9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.(Romans 5:9-10) see we are justified by His blood. Finally seeing the great significance of baptism in a Christians life we read Romans 6: 3-11, 14 “ 3Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 5For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; 7for he who has died is freed from sin.

      8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. 10For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

What’s the outcome? Verse 14 “For sin shall NOT be master over you, for you are not under law but under GRACE.” We will still sin at times but sin can no longer be master over us. We become freed from sin.

Have you been saved and never baptized? Why delay any longer find a church who will baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Or get someone to baptize you in their swimming pool or at a river or lakefront even a bathtub. If you’ve never been saved then repent and believe on the Lord Jesus and mean it with all your heart and confess Jesus as Lord…..an then get baptized…

Why Believers today are righteous like Abraham

Many people especially Christians, think righteousness is something gained by working hard at it, something you strive for, but it isn’t at all. Sanctification and holiness is something you strive for, but not righteousness.

True righteousness is not something derived from the law, but righteousness is imputed directly to you from God on the basis of your faith in Jesus Christ. In other words if you believe Jesus Christ is Gods Son, the Messiah, the Savior of the world and Lord, God reckons (credits) that faith you have in Jesus as righteousness. And because you are righteous then you are justified. And you are an heir of all the blessings of Abraham. That seems impossible but it is the truth. Let’s take a look…

Abraham was not Jewish at the time when he became the father of faith. He was 99 years old when he was circumcised and God made the old covenant and the nation of Israel began to form. So as God had planned it, Abraham became the father of many nations as a gentile and on the basis of faith God approved him as righteous because he believed God. He didn’t become righteous by sacrificing bulls and lambs, he became righteous by his faith. James 2:23 says “and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.

Now look at Philippians 3:9 and notice the Apostle Paul said that he didn’t have a righteousness of his own derived from the Law (the old covenant) but we have through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of FAITH! So you and me are both righteous because we have faith in Jesus. It’s not an earned thing we do, it’s by the Grace of God. Are you getting this? I hope so.

Now the Apostles taught this gospel, this word of faith and said in Romans 10:9,10; “

That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

for with the heart a person believes, resulting in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in SALVATION.

I am righteous and you are righteous if you believe from your heart in Christ. Isn’t that great news? In the new covenant as in the old God reckons our faith, our belief in Jesus as righteousness. The new covenant is the blood of Jesus, which He shed for all mankind. It was paid once and for all.

“ and having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation , being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek. (Heb. 5:9) THEREFORE He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”(Heb. 7:25) Repent and confess Jesus as Lord if you haven’t already done so and you too will be righteous.

“Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25)

“ And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.” (Heb. 9:27-28)

Now your job is to live a sanctified and holy life free of sexual immorality, to love God and your neighbor as yourself.

“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:20-25) Do you now understand how we are saved by grace through our Faith in Jesus? And that faith comes from God and is not of ourselves but freely given to those who believe…Stop trying to earn salvation by doing things from yourself to please God. Have faith and Love Him and your neighbor and abstain from sexual immorality and get baptized as Jesus commanded….

God Has had Enough

Isaiah prophesied in the time between 740 B.C. to 681 B.C and the book of Isaiah remains one of the most quoted books of the Bible, but few, however; understand its significance in proclaiming that God takes takes no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats and sacrifices, but one was coming who would be the Ultimate sacrifice for sins of the people.

God was fed up with the hypocrisy of practicing religion and bringing offerings while living very sinful lives. Does that ring a bell? Look at America and Europe, it’s worse today than ever. He said it this way: “ Bring your worthless offerings no longer,

            Incense is an abomination to Me.

            New moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies—

            I cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly.

      14“I hate your new moon festivals and your appointed feasts,

            They have become a burden to Me;

            I am weary of bearing them.

      15“So when you spread out your hands in prayer,

            I will hide My eyes from you;

            Yes, even though you multiply prayers,

            I will not listen.

            Your hands are covered with blood.

It’s the same today worshipers full of iniquity and full of unrepented sin pretending everything is ok as they attend solemn assembly’s on Sunday mornings. So what does the Lord say to them? “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;

            Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.

            Cease to do evil,

      17Learn to do good;

            Seek justice,

            Reprove the ruthless,

            Defend the orphan,

            Plead for the widow.

He’s telling us the same thing today repent repent repent of your hidden sins and do good and stop being evil, then lift up holy hands in worship and prayer and He will hear you.

Come now, and let us reason together,”

            Says the LORD,

            “Though your sins are as scarlet,

            They will be as white as snow;

            Though they are red like crimson,

            They will be like wool.

      19“If you consent and obey,

            You will eat the best of the land;

      20“But if you refuse and rebel,

            You will be devoured by the sword.”

            Truly, the mouth of the LORD has spoken. Devoured by the sword? How about war and nukes today? Whether it’s 700 B.C. or 2019 sin is still sin and hypocrisy is still hypocrisy and justice is still justice.

Prophecy about Jesus is so clear in Isaiah 53 it’s mind blowing how Jewish people and others for that matter couldn’t see it, the plain truth right in front of your face:

“ He has no stately form or majesty

            That we should look upon Him,

            Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.

      3He was despised and forsaken of men,

            A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;

            And like one from whom men hide their face

            He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

      4Surely our griefs He Himself bore,

            And our sorrows He carried;

            Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

            Smitten of God, and afflicted.

      5But He was pierced through for our transgressions,

            He was crushed for our iniquities;

            The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,

            And by His scourging we are healed.

      6All of us like sheep have gone astray,

            Each of us has turned to his own way;

            But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all

            To fall on Him.

      7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

            Yet He did not open His mouth;

            Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,

            And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,

            So He did not open His mouth.

      8By oppression and judgment He was taken away;

            And as for His generation, who considered

            That He was cut off out of the land of the living

            For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?

      9His grave was assigned with wicked men,

            Yet He was with a rich man in His death,

            Because He had done no violence,

            Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

      10But the LORD was pleased

            To crush Him, putting Him to grief;

            If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,

            He will see His offspring,

            He will prolong His days,

            And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.

      11As a result of the anguish of His soul,

            He will see it and be satisfied;

            By His knowledge the Righteous One,

            My Servant, will justify the many,

            As He will bear their iniquities.

      12Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,

            And He will divide the spoils with the strong;

            Because He poured out Himself to death,

            And was numbered with the transgressors;

            Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,

            And interceded for the transgressors.”

Jesus is the answer to life….and the afterlife…
