Why troubles come your way

Why troubles come your way

King David wrote “ Before I was afflicted, I went astray;

but now I keep Your word.” (Psalms 119:67)

Think about what this means. King David had it all and everything going for him, but then he went astray and all hell broke lose in his life. Just how did he go astray?

On a beautiful day he stood on his rooftop and looking down saw the most beautiful woman naked and bathing. She just happened to be a married woman named Bathsheba, but that didn’t matter, he had to have her. The temptation was great and he yielded at that moment. In stead of changing his mind sin overtook him and he had her brought to him. At his palace he entered into a sexual relationship with her and Bathsheba got pregnant.

Her husband Uriah was a solder and in command of many men and was away fighting so King David had him summoned from the battlefield to go to his wife (to cover up their affair) and lay with his wife, but Uriah would not go into her because his men were fighting on the battlefield and he didn’t think it was right so he slept on the porch instead. David’s plan didn’t work so to make matters worse he had Uriah sent back, but this time to the front lines so he would be killed and sure enough he was killed. Now David had blood on his hands with murder in Gods eyes for what he had done.

David then took her into his household and she became his wife. Nathan the prophet was sent to David and told him a parable and ask what he would do to the man and David said this man must die. Then the profit said to David “you are that man!” This is what the Lord said to David as written in II Samual 12:7-18; “I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8I gave your master’s house to you and your master’s wives into your arms. I gave you the house of Israel and Judah, and if that was not enough, I would have given you even more.

9Why then have you despised the command of the LORD by doing evil in His sight? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife as your own, for you have slain him with the sword of the Ammonites. 10Now, therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.’

11This is what the LORD says: ‘I will raise up adversity against you from your own house. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to another, and he will lie with them in broad daylight. 12You have acted in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.’”

David’s Loss and Repentance

13Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”

“The LORD has taken away your sin,” Nathan replied. “You will not die. 14Nevertheless, because by this deed you have treated the LORD with utter contempt, the son born to you will surely die.”

15After Nathan had gone home, the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife had borne to David, and he became ill. 16David pleaded with God for the boy. He fasted and went into his house and spent the night lying in sackclothc on the ground. 17The elders of his household stood beside him to help him up from the ground, but he was unwilling and would not eat anything with them.

18On the seventh day the child died.

God forgave David’s sin but tragedies followed his household. In Gods Grace he gave David and Bathsheba another son named Solomon who became the wisest and wealthiest King ever in Israel. Once again, what did David write in Psalms 119: 67? “Before I was afflicted, I went astray;but now I keep Your word.” And so it is with all of us. When we stray from the Lord and sin we get afflicted in various ways and means until we wake up and repent from our hearts and live right again like we did when we first met the Lord. Crazy as it might sound, the Lord allows things because of His great love for us. “ do no take lightly the discipline of the Lord.”

In Revelation 2 Jesus said to the church at Ephesus “ 4But I have this against you: You have abandoned your first love. 5Therefore, keep in mind how far you have fallen. Repent and perform the deeds you did at first. But if you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. REPENT AND PERFORM THE DEEDS YOU DID AT FIRST! That could mean getting re-baptized as well if you have fallen far away and are coming back home where you belong into the arms of Jesus. Everyone must examine himself to see what is right according to the scriptures. As the Bible says we must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling as our God is a consuming fire……

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.

Every Person born is guaranteed eternal life

Every person born is guaranteed eternal life (but where?) Every single person is born into this world as a sinner. Every single precious baby girl or boy are born in sin, because they sinned? No because their mother and father are sinners. ” There is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10) read it for yourself.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm 51:5) Again read it for yourself. It’s not long before the sweetest children begin to rebel and sin against their parents. The main first word they learn after “Mama and Papa” is NO. Why? For their own safety. Still they rebel and many get hurt and some die tragically because they decided to rebel against their parents or grandparents.

Why? Because they are born in sin and every human heart is born wicked. Here’s the verse: (Jeremiah 17:9) “… the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked : who can know it?” Yes your heart and my heart are is desperately wicked unless you keep it in check and walk with God daily. Even Christians do wicked things on occasion and must repent and return to God.

Only one person was ever born was sinless and never sinned, the Lord Jesus Christ. Gods Son became capable of sinning after He was born of a woman ( and yes his Mother Mary was a sinner because she was born into sin just like every human being) but Jesus even though severely tempted by Satan never sinned ever! Jesus then submitted to the Father in Heaven and laid down His life and shed His blood for the remission of sins for every person who by faith believes in Him and confesses Him as Lord and follows His command to be baptized in water.

One of the smartest Jewish leaders of his day came to Jesus at night because He didn’t want to be ridiculed by the Pharisees. He asked Jesus about everlasting life and Jesus told him this very very important statement: “Verily, verily I say to you no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” (John 3:3) Now Jesus went on to explain by the Spirit every person must be born again , read it for yourself.

So every person who expects to be saved now here on earth and be rewarded at death of their body to spend eternity in Heaven with the Father and Jesus and all the Saints must absolutely positively be born again of the Spirit of God. And if your born again you know it in your heart and you live your life following Jesus and the Bible.

Being saved is not repeating some words someone told you to say, nor is it attending some special church someone told you to attend, nor is it following rules and regulations laid down by someone, nor is it giving to the poor or doing great works, nor is it getting baptized. What it is believing in you deepest soul and heart that Jesus Christ is the Only begotten Son of God and only He can save your soul and believe He died and rose again and is coming back. It must be such a conviction that you truly repent of your sins and make a very conscious decision you will follow Him and remain faithful until you die. When you do then and only then do you become born again of the Spirit, and then you can get baptized to fulfill the promise. “We are all born into the body of Christ by One Spirit whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, we are all made to drink of one Spirit.” ( 1st Corinthians 12:13) Read it for yourself.

I played around with Christianity on and off in my life but one day I said to God ” I can’t do this I’m not strong enough” and that’s when God really began to move strongly in my life, the more I admitted I was weak He became stronger and the more I let go of this world and stayed surrendered, the more Gods Spirit took hold of my life. It is a process to let go of your life and give it to Him. Above all I know it is by grace through faith that I am saved, not a cheap grace being preached in many places today, but a Godly saving grace for souls crying out to God to be saved and forgiven. Don’t tell me your saved if you live like hell and live just like the world, your just deceiving yourself and you probably won’t make it. Today and everyday we must repent and ask forgiveness and begin each new day better than the last one and never give up, never and keep the faith….if you don’t you’ll still live for eternity but in the lake of fire…

The real tragedy of compromising on same sex marriage

Jesus was discussing the sin of adultery with the Apostles and made the statement: “ You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. “ But I say to you that everyone looking upon a woman in order to lust after her already has committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28) So the real sin is in the heart, it doesn’t have to be following through with the physical act.

The same is true of the sin of homosexuality. If you agree with same sex marriage and homosexuality, you have sinned in your heart and you will be judged on that basis even though you may not have been involved in the physical act yourself. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” If you agree homosexuality is ok, you become a homosexual in your heart, just the same as an adulterer, the thought in you heart makes you an adulterer and you will be judged as one.

All sin is judged and written about in the Bible but the sin of homosexuality is especially called out because it is sinning against your own body and evil spirits of perversion come and take up residence in your soul. That’s why there is such a mental and emotional battle in a homosexual’s mind causing sickness depression or other issues because at one time they knew deep inside their soul it’s a major sin and they will not make it to heaven, so all they have is this life and they know it, but love their sin to much to change, they choose eternal damnation for the few years of a homosexual relationship, how sad.

Many places in the Bible there is great warning against homosexuality, so if people are warned they are able to stop it and repent just like an adulterer can stop it, repent and be forgiven. Romans says God gives them over to a reprobate mind to do what dishonors them because they reject truth and God. Romans 1:25 “They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.” “In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.”

1st Corinthians 6:9-11 goes even further and states: “ Or do you not know that the unrighteous ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor coveters, not drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Clearly homosexuals will not go to heaven including the deceived “supposedly Christian homosexuals” (which is impossible). But wait, look: “And some of you were such. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” So there you go, some WERE in the same boat, but repented and now are on their way to heaven. No sin is beyond the blood of Jesus!

Lastly, in the final book of the Bible, Revelation 22:15 the warning of hell is given, “Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone loving and practicing lying.” It’s plain as the nose on your face; homosexuality is sexual immorality and a mortal sin because you are sinning against your own body that God gave you which is suppose to be His temple for the Holy Spirit to reside, not evil spirits and demons invited in by homosexual sin. There is hope in Jesus and salvation in his name. And don’t be deceived, if you compromise on this issue you will be judged just the same…

Did Jesus say ask me into your heart?

I’ve heard many Christians from several different denominations say on several occasions that no where in the Bible does it say we need to ask Jesus in our hearts, even going so far as to call this a heresy and false salvation to those who do it. Really? It appears they don’t know the Bible or what Jesus actually said in Revelation 3:20. Why? Because they don’t spend any time reading Revelation. They neither understand it or write off the the entire book as some sort of symbolism.

And what does Revelation 3:20 say? “ Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me”. What is the door? It can only be your heart. So if someone hears the gospel and opens the door of their heart to Jesus, then by His Holy Spirit He comes in through the doorway, which is your heart, to your spirit and you become born again by believing with your heart and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. For through Him by the Holy Spirit is grace and faith and the only way to have fellowship with the Father in heaven.

When you ask Jesus into your heart He comes in and dines with you meaning he takes up residence in your spirit and seals it for the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13, 4:30 and II Corinthians 1:22) and through the Holy Spirit that He sends you He teaches you to observe all things He commands. If I were you I would open your heart and ask Jesus to come in and save you. You can’t clean yourself up, only Jesus can clean your house and clean you up as you surrender to Him all the areas of your heart.

When the people ask what must I do to be saved in Acts what was the response from Peter? Repent and be baptized and you will receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. So am I saying baptism alone saves you? No I’m not and neither does the verse; however when you read all the conversions in the book of Acts what did those who believed do right away? They got baptized in water and so should we do the same because Jesus commanded it. You’ll also notice that they all believed FIRST and Confessed Jesus and were pricked in their hearts when they heard the Gospel. That’s why Paul said in Romans 10:8-11 “

“ what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,”that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.

It is just as the Scripture says: “Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.”For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on Him, for “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The gospel of salvation is fairly easy to understand if you hear with your heart and not some man made doctrine. Paul says the gospel is simple and it is the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. So you hear with your heart (not your mind only), you believe with your heart ( not just your mind), you obey from your heart, (not just agree intellectually)you confess Jesus is Lord from your heart, (not just words from the mind spoken), you obey Jesus commandment to be baptized ( not to join a church) and you ask Jesus into your heart which is by the Holy Spirit.

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.” (1st Corinthians 12:13)

15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”(Mark 16:15-18)

Jesus wants us to ask Him into our heart. He wants us to ask Him to baptize us in the Holy Spirit. For our heart is the door and He is knocking. Will you open the door? Ask Him in right now…

Robots, AI, Transhumanism and New Age deceptions

New Age Believers and many so called Christians are being fooled by this explosive age of robotics and transhumanism using artificial intelligence. This will bring them into a total delusion to believe what is false and lead millions away from the true God to a worship of “AI” gods and Technology, again fooled into believing man can live forever and become a god forgetting the soul leaves the body at the death.

Already perverted men and women are producing “Sex Robots” and cannot keep up with the demand worldwide. Humans copulating with machines substituting God’s gift of sexuality and procreation. And it’s not just female robots, soon the male versions will also be manufactured. The desperately wicked hearts of men and women can invent every form of evil it can conceive. There’s no doubt that thousands perhaps millions will become demon possessed in the “AI” artificial intelligence world in the future.

Intertwined in all of this robotics and “AI”is sorcery and witchcraft, leading to human sacrifice and murder and sexual immorality on such a scale, the world has never seen since the days of Noah. Human trafficking and pedophilia happens daily across the entire planet. Before the flood the earth was full of wickedness and murder and lawlessness brought on by the “sons of God or fallen angels” (Genesis 6) who mated with human women that produced the giants of old, men of renown, who even copulated with animals and produced hybrids even more evil then themselves. Finally They turned to cannibalism because man could not feed them with normal crops and they begin murdering and eating humans and finally each other. Thus the flood and starting over with pure human DNA of which only Noah and his family remained on the face of the earth along with the pure DNA of the animals who were spared in the Ark.

And what are the signs of the end of the age and Jesus return as spoken by Jesus? “As in the days of Noah” the sorcery and witchcraft, unthinkable lawlessness including sexual immorality and murder and cannibalism and hybrids are returning once again through the age of “AI” and transhumanism. Disguised as helping mankind it’s really a deception to deceive mankind into the worshiping of Lucifer which is what he’s always wanted since He rebelled against the Most High and was cast out of heaven. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the tree of good and evil which allowed Satan to take control of this world, bring death to humans and cause untold sufferings by manipulating wicked men in spreading wars and disease and racial hatred throughout the tribes and nations of the earth. Satan loses in the end and has already been judged, but he continues to deceive man who he hates, to sin and deny God and follow him into the lake of fire that burns for all eternity. His time is almost up.

And what are the many Christian churches doing? Allowing wolves in sheep clothing to infiltrate their churches with new age teachings of witchcraft and humanism and immorality subtlety introduced into the teaching of the gospel without notice. These false teachers are themselves deceived and feed the human pride and ego of knowing some “Special or Secret Knowledge” from God that no one else has they conclude; all the while helping Satan lead them to the wide road of hell. Mixing in “dream cards” to foretell the future of unsuspecting naive Christians which is nothing more than using tarot cards of witchcraft. And manufacturing “promise board games”that works just like a Ouija board supposedly for Christians, again nothing but witchcraft.

How can this happen? The simple truth is because Pastors and Bishops and Priest are falling by the hundreds, weighted down by sins, many bound by sexual immorality or pornography and having a broken relationship with God. Preachers who use preprinted sermons and teachings series published by their denominations or colleagues but totally devoid of biblical truths and the simple gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. This is the age of the social gospel, hyper grace without repentance and politically correct messages so no one will be offended and leave the churches and take their money with them. Pastors who spend little or no time praying and seeking God for what to teach their congregations on any given Sunday and have zero authority and faith to work the works of God and follow the Holy Spirits leading. Why?, because Satan has them all wrapped up in their sins and they have no confidence to believe for any move of the Spirit. Is it any wonder Churches are failing our culture and closing at record rates never seen before?

The gospel is so simple anyone can understand it. That being God the Father loved us even while we were sinners and sent His only begotten Son in the form of a human man into Mary’s womb and was born, lived sinless, teaching us His word and commandments and becoming the ultimate sacrifice nailed on the cross to shed his blood for the sins of all mankind. He arose from the dead on the third day and appeared to the Apostles and hundreds of others over a period of forty days and was received back up into heaven having fulfilled the old law and giving us a new covenant in His Blood. He said whoever believes and is baptized shall be saved. He said I will send you another comforter, the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit if truth who will teach you all things concerning Him(Jesus). He said I will come again gather you up with me to live together forever. He said there will be a resurrection of the dead. He said he will also destroy all of wicked mankind, the false prophet, the antichrist and Satan and fallen angels, death and hell and the grave and throw them all into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth forever and ever. He said He will create a new heaven and a new earth and this earth will burn up. There, there will be no sin, no suffering, no pain, no tears and no need of light because He is the light.

Have you dabbled in the new age or the occult teachings? Have you been into sexual immorality or bound by drugs or alcohol or some other bondage? Have you been searching trying to add to what the Bible says instead of just surrendering your life, mind body and soul to Jesus and living a quiet and peaceful life as we are told to do?

If so, you must repent, stop your sinning and turn to Jesus Christ. He loves you no matter what you’ve done, but He expects you to repent and come to Him in faith or you will be dammed. He didn’t spare the angels who fell and He won’t spare you or me if we continue to purposely sin. Romans 10:9-10 says “if you believe in your HEART that Jesus is Lord and CONFESS with your mouth you will be saved.” Then you become righteous because you believed with all your heart and you become saved because you confess with your mouth. And what do you do then? Find a Christian or Church who will baptise you in the name of the Father and the Son and Holy Spirit as Jesus commanded and don’t delay. For you are buried with Jesus in baptism symbolizing washing away your sins and rising up symbolizing the resurrection to walk in newness of life. All your sins will be forgiven and that heavy load will be lifted off. Then follow Jesus teaching and stay faithful until you draw your last breath and you WILL RECEIVE A CROWN OF LIFE! Whoever loves the world or the things of the world Gods love cannot reside in Him. But whoever loves the Son loves the Father also and Gods love abides in Him…..,
