God’s not Dead but the Majority of Churches are..

There are three main reasons why people go to church religiously: Guilt, Habit or Hunger. With guilt people know they have messed up and feel unworthy. They go instinctively to meet the One who can forgive them and change them, but instead of finding a connection and a real personal relationship with God most of the time they’re only presented with ritual and rules in the modern or traditional way. The power and presence of God is not in the services.

With Habit, finding or seeking God may not even be a goal because they are so entrenched in the religious system of the world or their denomination that the result is only going through the motions of a walk with the Lord because there is no power in their lives to fight against the enemy. They look and act just like the people in the world; the unsaved throughout the week then put on their Christian badge on Sunday so everyone can see. The presence of God is nowhere in their lives nor do they care to even enter in to His presence. They are happy just the way things are and the desire to really know God is not there.

Hunger: they want to know more about God and go to church to learn, but instead of finding His presence, they’re often presented with traditions, habits, rules, and dogmas and other nonsense that has nothing to do with finding the presence of God. Why? Because most churches that don’t preach and teach the fullness of the gospel totally and in the power. They might as well call themselves the Country Club.

Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying don’t go to church but don’t go to a dead church where they don’t preach the fullness of Jesus Christ and there is no presence of God by His Holy Spirit in worship and teachings.

Many are now having home bible study with worship and prayer and fellowship right in the homes where Gods Holy Spirit can freely move and teach without denominational doctrine. There is only one true doctrine and that’s the Apostles doctrine as written in the Holy Bible. Isn’t it strange the Bible says “no man needs to teach you? “And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.”(1 Jn 2:27) Read and study the word and the Holy Spirit will teach you. Now if you don’t have the anointing of the Holy Spirit you must seek it through prayer and faith in Jesus Christ otherwise how can the anointing teach you? The anointing is the filling or fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The true word for church is “Ecclesia” which simply means a gathering in a group of like minded people not just going to a building to practice a religion. God does not wait around for a week waiting for you to show up so you can have church! He does not live in a building or temple made with hands, He lives in our hearts and spirit by His Holy Spirit! The kingdom of God is within you and not of this world.

Church is not and was never supposed to be a substitute for a everyday direct relationship between you and God. 99% of all your battles in life are outside the church building in real life and you cannot run to a building every time there is a problem, no no you run to God immediately in prayer and converse with Him and read the word. We must all practice walking in the light daily, seeking His will for our lives and pray the Lord’s Prayer when we rise up in the mornings without fail and then talk with Him throughout the day as you would to a friend. When you blow it and sin and you will, repent quickly and don’t run away from God instead run to Him as He is merciful and forgives as soon as you come to Him and repent. We all need to repent and forgive daily and walk in His light and follow His word. Now you know perilous times have begun and horrible things are on the horizon, but God is with us and Jesus will never forsake you, ever…..Lift up you family, friends, city and nation in prayer and don’t let you love grow cold because lawlessness abounds, instead take everything to God in prayer…

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.

The greatest Gift you can receive…

If you believe in The Creator and His Son Jesus then you should be born again of His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, which enters you when you believe from you heart. And if you believe from you heart then you will have also been baptized in water as He commanded. And if you have been baptized in water, then your commitment to live right must follow or it’s all just a sham. Now back in the day as a youth , I believed Jesus was Gods Son and I also was baptized, but nothing really changed in my life. Why not? Because I really didn’t believe all things become new; I didn’t sincerely repent, I was just following what religion was telling me to do. Later on in high school I got baptized again and still nothing changed so I pretty much blew religion off and just lived for myself thinking none of this works.

I was wrong because much later on in life I actually started seeking the truth with all my heart. Forgetting everything I had been taught I bought myself a bible and began reading it and studying it for myself. What I found out was exactly what Jesus said “ you must be born again of the Spirit to see the kingdom of God” and how does that happen? Well it’s not by practicing religion and following their set of rules, it can only happen by Gods Grace through your faith in the truth of the Bible. And that truth is Jesus loves us and died for us and rose again and is coming again. Our part is to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord after believing it from our heart and making a decision to follow Him with water baptism and then to do our best to live for him.

I’ll never forget how clean I felt and how wonderful it was to finally get saved. I finally got it. It didn’t stop there as I continued to study the Bible I saw many things I never saw before and was not taught about that are as true today in 2019 as they were in 33 A.D. those promises of God are for us today as God is no respecter of persons or of generations as His loving kindness is from generation to generation. What promises are still true for us today? All of them. These include being forgiven, being healed of sicknesses, being filled with the Holy Spirit, and all the gifts of the Spirit given to all of His choosing. Nine gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are: word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith,gifts of healing, effecting of miracles, prophecy, distinguishing of spirits, various kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues. All given by the same Spirit distributing to each one individually just as He wills.

For by one Spirit we were ALL baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were made to drink of one Spirit. The Holy Spirit! “ Jesus Christ is the Same yesterday, today and forever. “ So there you go it’s up to you to believe the or not. Now many who do not know God or his Spirit will argue about every detail and try to tear down your beliefs but the thing is they can’t because the Holy Spirit within you knows the truth and you have seen with your spiritual eyes and your physical eyes on occasion. Once your knower inside know ( your spirit ) no one can lie to you anymore. Nor can you lie to yourself because the Holy Spirit tells you the truth and He lives inside you and never leaves you. That’s why Jesus said “ I will never leave you or forsake you” because He is always there through the Holy Spirit.

The great apostle Paul said “my message and my preaching was not with persuasive words of wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power” what demonstration of the Spirit and of power do we show people today? Probably not much because we don’t pursue the gifts as we are commanded to do. “But desire earnestly that you prophecy” you don’t desire earnestly because you don’t believe it? God help us in our unbelief.

I have told many people of Gods great grace of healings that have transpired over the years in my life and true believers believe but others look at at me like a deer looking into headlights which is very sad to me. You’ll never understand the working of the Spirit unless you have Him inside. I certainly don’t understand why some are healed and others are not or why I’m healed one time and not another and must see a doctor which is rare. All I know is Gods word is true and I believe it, all of it.

What I do know is Satan or his demons prowl looking for someone to devour. And what did Jesus tell the disciples? “Pray that you may not come into temptation” we must pray daily not sometimes, because this is no game it’s real life.

Some preachers say everything will be perfect when you come to Jesus, wrong! It’s much much better of course but living for God will cost you something maybe even your life! Through the storms of life you have peace because you know Jesus is there with you. The storms and the testing of your faith isn’t easy but they make your stronger and humble you to the point you finally realize it’s all about Jesus and what He did for us nothing is about us. We are just passing through so never give up and if you have then come back home where you belong, Jesus is still there. God told Israel repent and turn back to me and I will receive you. That’s exactly the same for us today. God still loves you..and the greatest gift is receiving Jesus….

Don’t fear in 2019

To my brothers and sisters in Christ I implore you not to fear what you hear and what you see coming, but fear God who is able to cast souls into hell. Perfect love cast out all fear and the one who fears is not perfected in love, because fear involves punishment and there IS none for those who have made Jesus both Savior and Lord! There awaits only glory for us, free from sin and corruption and sickness and death in an eternal heaven with God, with His Son and myriads of saints and angels abiding forever and ever where love resides and there is no sin.

Now let the things of this world grow dim, forsaking that sin that sometimes entangles you. walk in forgiveness and abundant faith knowing all your brothers and sisters in Christ suffer the very same temptations and trials that you do. But realize Jesus is able to deliver us from evil and deliver our souls to the Father in heaven. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.

You know that the Love of money is the root of all evil which causes souls to chase after it for power and wealth and sexual perversion and every sin that can be named. It all stems from the love of money. Steer clear of that wickedness of the love of money and give a portion of your money to do good works and to the poor. Stop coveting things like the world does always wanting bigger and newer and better things when your money could be put to much better use spreading the good news around the world. All of us have fallen into this trap at one time or another and reaped the binding stress of debt that our love of credit provides because we just had to have things immediately. Now is the time to get out of debt before the coming worldwide Financial crash occurs and time is running out.

Are you praying the Lord’s Prayer daily? Are you talking to God throughout the day? Have you asked God for directions to complete His will for you on earth before you leave? What about giving thanks for all He has done for you? If we are living and breathing and have a roof over our heads and clothes to wear and food to eat and transportation isn’t that enough to give our Creator praise and thanks? How

much we forget all the little things He does for us and take things for granted. In 2019 ask God to send someone by your life that you can lead to Christ. Perhaps family or friends or even a total stranger. Can you be a Bold Christian in 2019 and teach someone about the Love of Jesus or will you just lean back and relax? Time is short and it’s time for Christians to be bold and fight the good fight of faith. When you get to heaven how many will you bring with you? You can witness anywhere you go or by any means you can. Use the Internet, start a blog if need be, just do something for Christ in 2019 and if you can’t then give to a ministry you know that is preaching the gospel that you trust. Let people including, your enemies see a change in you that reflects the love of God and boldness they have never seen before. “Let your light so shine that men will see the light and turn and glorify Our God in heaven. Yes it will cost you something, perhaps ridicule or mocking or persecution but know that if it does, Gods blessing rest upon you. You may be the only person that ever witnessed salvation to them in their life. Even if they reject you, the witness will penetrate their soul and they won’t forget it. We must all do better in 2019 because time is short and perilous times are coming very soon. Do your part and I will do mine and together we will help bring in the final harvest of souls into the kingdom……

Why Christians should not fear death

Human nature is self protective; no one wants to die unless they have serious mental issues. We all want to preserve our lives as long as possible and live peacefully without war or famine or pestilence enjoying ourselves with family and friends and relatives. That’s very normal but in today’s world it sometimes seems Death is just around the corner lurking to take us out by some disaster or disease or lawless act or war. We rationalize that only happens to other people not us but regardless we all know what’s inevitable and that is someday in the future our life will be over and our life here on earth will end. Younger ones hardly give it a thought, they live like they will last forever. Older ones see the clock ticking and it’s coming quickly which brings me to the point of this blog, are you ready to go? Do you live your life like this could be your last day? Probably not for most.

Jesus said in the gospel book of John “You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven” that is your Spirit must be born again. Now you can debate all you want the various doctrines of the Bible and all the churches doctrines but the bottom line is this: you must be born again of the Spirit or you will never see heaven. How do you know you’ve been born again? Gods Spirit bears witness with your spirit that your born again. This means if you don’t know or have the witness inside yourself you’re in dangerous territory and the outcome of your afterlife experience is in grave doubt. Now I’m not at all talking about superficial acts like water baptism or church attendance, in other words those acts done on the surface to fulfill a doctrine, I’m talking about a hunger for God, a full surrender of your life to the Lord Jesus Christ without holding back your favorite sins and any fleshly desire which brings me another point. If you said a fifteen second prayer called the sinners prayer in most camps without fully repenting of your sins from your heart giving your life totally to Jesus, then it means nothing, your just fooling yourself. No you must be born again and know it inside.

How does this happen? By doing what Jesus said to do: confess your sins and call on the name of the Lord meaning call out to God from inside your heart for God to forgive you and save you through His Son Jesus confessing you believe that Jesus is His Son and paid your sin penalty of eternal death in hell by dying on the cross and shedding His blood and believing He rose again and is coming again. Now if you will do this and mean it with all your heart the Spirit of God will come into your spirit and things will change and you will know you’ve been born again. After this get water baptized as this is a direct commandment from Jesus. This shows you have committed your life to Him in likeness of His death symbolizing burial and resurrection. However; remember we are all baptized into one body by the Spirit of God. You must be born again!

Now when you are born again your spirit is sealed for the day of redemption says Ephesians 4:30 so now your old man is dead, your new in the spirit. Since you already died why would you fear death? That sinful man or woman died and now you live for Christ not for yourself any longer. No reason to fear your body dying, you’ll just cross over and go home to heaven.

But what if you’ve sinned a lot since you know for sure you were born again at one point? Then repent and mean it repent a lot and mean it and live Holy the best you can. If you blow it, repent again and never stop repenting and surrendering your life to Christ. Jesus will finish what He started in you and will never leave you or forsake you. He said no one is able to take them out of my hand or the Fathers hand as the Father is greater than He.

Make up your mind you will live for God and know you will be mocked and ridiculed by others and may even be persecuted but remember if they hated Jesus they will hate you, that is the worldly people. Once your born again Nothing can separate you from the love of God, nothing! And as this world heads towards a one world government and wickedness as in the days of Noah, God has a remnant of believers and His Holy Spirit will cover the earth. If you lose your life you will save it but if you try to save your life you will lose it in the end. Jesus said” be faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life.” A Christian should not fear death but embrace it as it means we’re heading home. Whatever you see on this earth remember this is not your home. We are strangers and Aliens on this planet because our kingdom is not of this world, we’re just passing through…

Those Odd Ball Crazy Christians

The Bible says that Christians who are truly saved are a peculiar people. Very peculiar to the world, but family to each other. There’s a certain camaraderie among them and belief that is unsurpassed in the spirit world for one reason; all born again Christians have the same Spirit given to us by God through Jesus. Now does that mean all Christians agree on everything? Not hardly, but the one thing we all agree on is Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, that He is the word of God and became flesh and lived on earth and died on a cross and shed His blood for the remission of our sins, was buried then arose from the dead and ascended up to heaven and is coming back again someday to rule and reign. So this great hope that resides in Christians, resides in their spirit because it’s the very same spirit, the Spirit of the living God. “For by One spirit we were all baptized into one body” the body of Christ.

Now these odd people are odd because of the hope they carry of eternal life, living with the Father and His Son Jesus who created all things. This strange group of people know they are sinners and know there is no hope without Jesus in their lives. These people have the audacity to believe God is who He says He is and walk this life by faith in Jesus name, not by what they see going on around them or in the world. They are Peculiar only to those in the world who live by their fleshly desires far removed from knowing God though deep inside they know there is one God being evident by seeing His creation, knowing that all this absolutely could not have happened by mere chance.

You see there is also an enemy of God named Satan who convinced a third of the angels to follow him in his crazy scheme to become like the Most High and be worshipped but since he was defeated by Jesus on the cross and all power and dominion belongs to Jesus in heaven and in earth and God pronounced his sentence to the lake of fire for him and all the fallen angels when Jesus returns, his only goal now is to take as many as possible with him to hell and the lake of fire, so the battle rages on until the end. The battle for your soul and mind.

Now the majority of these odd ball Christians lived just like the worldly ones in the past, even worse in some cases, but the difference lies in the fact that while we were still sinners Jesus died for us and freedom from the fear of dying and going to hell (which is what we all deserve) passes away the minute we repent of our sins, turn away from the love of the world, and follow Jesus by believing in our hearts and confessing with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and following His example by being baptized.

You see there is no death for the redeemed, your spirit just leaves your body and goes to heaven as you await the resurrection and receiving your new glorified body that will live forever and ever and ever. Now that’s a promise you can stand on because God says it is true. Remember God is not a man that He could lie. Our Father is so pure so holy so perfect, nothing and no one could ever compare. There is coming a new heaven and a new earth the word says.

Us peculiar odd ball crazy Christians are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but we are all “sealed by the Holy Spirit” awaiting the resurrection day. And that hope is deep within us. There is no soul sleep as the word says “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”

So why do you suppose Christians are so maligned and hated and killed and martyred and picked on? The reason is simple; Jesus said “remember they hated me before they hated you.” They love their sin and love darkness rather than the light and truth. Like a rebellious child they want their own way not Gods way even though He has provided a way out of the darkness with His Son Jesus. “ God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” God loves everyone, but everyone will not be saved, in fact the majority of people will burn in Hell because they refused the free gift of salvation that is there for anyone who believes.

How many times have you heard it said if God exist why is there so much pain and suffering in the world? The answer is still the same. “Because men love The darkness rather than light.” God did not create us like robots, everyone is a unique individual with total FREE WILL and those who deny God fall into sin and many invite the demons into their lives openly by inviting them in by the life that they lead and their love of the world, the love of money, the love of power, the love of lust and the love of drugs and the love of lying and murder and hate. These evil men and women led by the voices of Satan are the ones who have caused and are still causing untold suffering and death and every evil under the sun upon the earth, NOT GOD! You can read about them from Genesis to Revelation and in modern day history books and on the Internet. Vile men and women who love the darkness and not the light.

But surely your not one of them. Surely you want to break free of your sin and your addictions and heartache and deep seeded fear. Surely you will call upon the Lord to save you and turn from your sin. Surely you’re tired of the life you’ve been living and have seen there is no hope without God. You can escape you know and become an odd ball peculiar crazy Christian like the rest of us that are saved. If you feel any tug on your heart that’s God the Holy Spirit calling you to come home. Do it today do it now and join Gods unique family and become a part of the body of Christ. Gods salvation is free, but His blessings, His protection and His provision for you are conditional. You must surrender daily to Him and take up your cross and follow Him and obey His commandments the best you can, and if you are serious, the Holy Spirit will help you because Jesus said “ Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
