Fearmongers

“Enter into the rock and hide in the dust from the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty.  The lofty eyes of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down; but Jehovah, He alone, shall be exalted in that day.”  Isaiah 2:10-11   So with much due expectation a Syrian missile strike by the United States, France and the UK ensued.  The internet immediately blew up with tons of people going live on their YouTube channels and other media outlets.  The warnings were largely the same from both the small and big alternative media, World War 3 had broken out.    In hindsight, Russia did not and has not responded militarily.  While their S-200 units, ran by Russian trained Syrian solders managed to shoot down a reported 71 of approximately 105 incoming missiles, militarily there was no exchange of fire between the United States and Russia.  While I wouldn’t dismiss the possibility of such type of events leading into a hot war with Russia at some point in the future, the opinion on that night was that war had begun.   It’s been stated before and should be restated again, eventually these people who call out everything are going to be right on some things.  The problem is that they have usually been wrong on nearly everything.  While we could definitely dig deeper into the whole Syria ordeal, the proxy war for control between the US and Russia, we won’t.  The point here is that the fearmongers are always ready to call every potential disastrous situation as having went from a...

Controversy With The Nations

“A roaring noise shall come to the ends of the earth; for Jehovah has a controversy with the nations; He will enter into judgment with all flesh. He will give those who are wicked to the sword, says Jehovah.  Thus says Jehovah of Hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest shall be roused up from the recesses of the earth.  And in that day the slain of Jehovah shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be mourned, nor gathered, nor buried. They shall be as dung on the ground.”  Jeremiah 25:31-33   Who knows where our world will have gone with actions that are going on in the Middle East, as well as our relations with Russia.  By time this article is finished and the accompanying radio show is done, so much can change.  Could we see the beginning of World War 3?  Perhaps no action will have been taken in Syria, against the Russian holdings.  One thing we do no for sure is that truth has been out the window for a long time now.  The only thing the world has to hold onto as Truth is God’s Word to humanity, the Bible.  Even then one must take extreme caution to have a good copy, for the English speaking people, that would safely be the King James Version.    Recently it seems politics have been on the forefront of the discussion from All Will Stand.  Yet, looking at them from a biblical perspective.  What the future holds is not...

One Chance

“And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books.  And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one, according to their works.  And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.”  Revelation 20:11-15   Here another Easter Sunday goes by, today I’m going to skip going over the pagan origins of the name Easter.  Today I am going to skip incorporating the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts into your church service.  Today I am going to skip the rock concert going on in the bigger, more modern churches.  For once I am going to remain silent about all of the programs that you use to get people into your church.  Today I’m going about how your service was in the eyes of the Most High.   You finally did it, you know, they come on Easter Sunday.  In droves, families will pack churches all around in the United States.  Faces that you only see once per year...

Word by Word

“To whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand the message? Those weaned from the milk and removed from the breasts.  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little”…  Isaiah 28:9-10   We live in a world, where word by word things are being changed.  Mass deceptions, as defined as words that are contrary to the Holy Scriptures, are being placed as snares upon the whole world, word by word.  This tactic has been deployed on unsuspecting masses for quite a time.  The purpose of this article is to make people, including Believers, aware of such tactics, not to actually break down the principals of how the deception works.    Truly there is an easy way to overcome these deceptions.  For Christians, for those who have truly repented and by faith believed into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, simply believe God, believe His Word, believe what he says and anything that is contrary to what our Creator has declared, then we can easily see through the deception.  Really it is that simple.   “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on all the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.  Therefore take up all the armor of God, that you may be...

Slothful

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.”  2nd Timothy 2:15   The other day there was a knock on the door.  At the door was someone who is from the Jehovah Witnesses.  With information in hand they were trying to get me to attend their meeting.  After our brief conversation, at which I let them know that I was not interested at all and that were neither of Jehovah or a witness to the Truth, they made their way to the neighbors home.    Two by two members of both the Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons go out into the world with their false doctrine, propagating their lies.  Though one would understand that indeed those knocking on doors are also deceived, their diligence is something to be commended, if only they were really doing the work of Christ in spreading the Gospel message.    In times past I have had tracts left by what would be considered conservative Independent Fundamental Baptist churches.  While the tract would be a breath of fresh air in comparison to some of the bizarre and unbiblical teachings left by others, it too fell short of the full Gospel message.  Even then repentance was not mentioned and nearly all tracts that I have run across, except on a rare occasion, include a sinner’s prayer for one to repeat, also absent of repentance.  In most cases if someone repeated those words they are instructed to call or write and let the church that handed out the tract know that they are...

They Believe Others

“I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me. If another comes in his own name, him you will receive.”  John 5:43   Certainly we know this to be a prophetic statement.  Truly there will come a time where the Antichrist will arise and lead the world astray (Rev. 13:14).  Pretending to be God (2 Thes. 2:4), he will become both the political and religious leader of the world (Rev. 13:3).  During that time, the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), better known as the Great Tribulation, many will be deceived.  That is a time like no other and Jesus warned about such a time.    “For then there will be great affliction, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.  And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be kept safe alive; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.  Then if anyone says to you, Look, here is the Christ; or, There; do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.  Behold, I have told you beforehand.”  Matthew 24:21-25   Yet we have seen precursors in many ways since Jesus went to sit at the Father’s right hand (Mk. 16:19).  Already the mass majority believe others, instead of believing Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith.   “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin...

Knowledge Shall Be Increased

“And at that time, Michael shall stand up, the great ruler who stands for the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of distress, such as has not been since there was a nation until that time. And at that time, your people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the Book.  And many of those sleeping in the earth’s dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to reproach and everlasting abhorrence.  And the prudent shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness, as the stars forever and ever.  But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”  Daniel 12:1-4   It is apparent that knowledge has been increased.  As I write this article, just over a month shy of 40 years old, I have seen numerous changes in my lifetime.    This article is typed using software that will alert me to misspelled words, it’s older software that I choose to use.  Then I will take this article and I will post it up on the world wide web, a term that is barely used outside of geek squads nowadays.  This will be posted on a website that was designed using software, hosted on a computer overseas.  Afterwards the link to the article will make its way to three separate social media websites, finally it will be emailed to those who have subscribed to have these articles emailed to them.  Then, as is...

Threats

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of travail.”  Matthew 24:6-8   Oh for the days of before where there wasn’t so many supposed threats against our nation, both from inside and outside influences!  This country has suffered from threats before.    We had the threat of a nuclear war during the Cold War with the Soviet Union.  There the government increased the paranoia of the situation by telling people to duct tapes windows and school children to go underneath school desks.  The horror was fully felt as Barry Goldwater apparently lost the presidential election after the influence of a commercial of a girl picking flower pedals as a mushroom cloud appears.  We also had the oil crisis that caused a lot of strife, panic and problems for Americans from coast to coast.    There was a long period of threats from the outside world having disappeared during the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s.  During that time the perceived threat rhetoric was changed from that of an outside threat to an interior threat.  The nation took the bait hook, line and sinker, while those who were in the know began ringing the alarm bells.  The threat had become an interior one.    Americans allowed wars to continue on around the globe, without any concern of the validity of such actions.  With...

Place of Torment

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, prostitutes, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”  Revelation 21:8   Personal responsibility is a concept that is disappearing quickly.  Nowadays there are people who look towards others to bail them out of troubles that oftentimes they have gotten themselves into.  Whether it is trouble with the law, troubles with finances or a host of other issues.   In all reality men and women, by and large, need to have the personal responsibility, when they are capable, to provide for their own families and obey the laws of the land.  Failure to do so results in consequences.  Likewise, preachers also have a responsibility to God to preach His truth regarding the condition of man, Salvation and declaring what God says about the ultimate destiny of mankind and their personal responsibility regarding their sin.    “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day.  And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate,  desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.  So it happened that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.  And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.  Then he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on...

Set In Order

“Then the kingdom of Heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five foolish.  Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all nodded and fell asleep.  And at midnight there was a cry: Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!  Then all those virgins arose and prepared their lamps.  And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.  But the wise answered, saying, No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.  Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us!  But he answered and said, Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.  Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man comes.”  Matthew 25:1-13   When king Hezekiah was going to die, the prophet Isaiah told him to set his house in order.   “In those days Hezekiah had become sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him and said to him, Thus says Jehovah: Set your house in order, for you are dying,...
