As Little Children

“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who then is greater in the kingdom of Heaven?  And Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of Heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is greater in the kingdom of Heaven.”  Matthew 18:1-4   I awoke today with a thought of just how simple it should be for people to believe the Gospel.  Irregardless of what might be taught by the ‘professionals’ throughout the world, I wondered why no one questions the fact that the world is not yet overpopulated.    A quick Google search and I found that supposedly mankind is six million years old, the current evolved form of mankind (I guess that would be us) is around 200,000 years old, civilization as we know it is around 6,000 years old and the industrial revolution started in the 1800’s.  In and of itself that evolutionary statement of disbelief aligns itself with the Word of God in that the world is around 6,000 years old, so I agree with the civilization portion, any book would quickly verify the industrial revolution.  But according to mankind, the current form of humans is 200,000 years old, why isn’t the population of the world too many people?   In 2000 years, according to those who do such research, the population has went from somewhere between 170 – 400 million, increasing steadily to around 7.5 billion people today.  If mankind...

Enslavement

“The prophets who have been before me and before you of old prophesied against many lands and against great kingdoms; of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.  As for the prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then the prophet shall be known, that Jehovah has truly sent him.”  Jeremiah 28:8-9   “Jehovah stands up to plead His case, and stands up to judge the peoples.  Jehovah will enter into judgment with the elders of His people, and their rulers. For you have eaten up the vineyard, the plunder of the poor is in your houses.  What do you mean that you crush My people, and grind the faces of the poor? says the Lord Jehovah of Hosts.  Furthermore Jehovah says, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched out necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and make a tinkling with their feet; therefore Jehovah will attach scabs to the top of the head of the daughters of Zion; and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts.  In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, and their headbands, and their crescents of the moon, the pendants, and the bracelets, and the veils; the turbans, and the leg ornaments, and the sashes, and the perfume boxes, and the amulets; the rings and nose jewels;  the festal apparel and the outer garments; and the mantles, and the purses;  the mirrors and the fine linen; and the turbans and the veils.  And it shall be, instead of a smell of perfume,...

Diversity

Even in a rural state like Montana, recently there is an ongoing push to pass legislation that would further expand non discrimination policies against lesbians, gays and transgenders.  The argument behind passing such legislation is that it would “signal to businesses that Montana is open for business to corporations who value diversity and inclusion.”  This type of legislation has been tried several times before and likely it will fail again, only to be reintroduced and reintroduced until it is finally passed.   Hardly can a Believer be safe from such headlines entering our homes.  Most recently President Trump undid Obama’s transgender bathroom policy for public schools, making it a state issue instead of a federal issue.  This in turn caused the Supreme Court to drop the case that they were going to hear that could’ve had ramifications for those states that refuse to follow such nonsense.  While I sincerely wish that such things were not dinner table topics or being constantly pushed by the mainstream media and the deviants who are trying to hasten America’s immorality, there is a point to be made about diversity.   What does the Holy Scriptures say about God’s thoughts on diversity?  Surprisingly the answer is quite simple.   “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many entering in through it.  Because narrow is the gate and distressing is the way which leads unto life, and there are few who find it.  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. ...

Intolerant

“And they said, There is no hope; but we will walk after our own thoughts, and we will each one do according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.”  Jeremiah 18:12   “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is clearly recognized by them, for God has revealed it to them.  For ever since the creation of the world the unseen things of Him are clearly perceived, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they know God, they do not glorify Him as God, nor are thankful, but become vain in their reasonings, and their stupid hearts are darkened.  Professing to be wise, they become foolish, and change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.  Therefore God also gives them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who change the truth of God into the lie, and fear and serve the created things more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.  For this reason God gives them up to vile passions. For even their women change the natural use for what is contrary to nature.  Likewise also the men, abandoning the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another, men with men performing what is shameful, and receiving the retribution within themselves, the penalty which...

We Were Created

“Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the heavens, and over the beasts, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that moves on the earth.  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.  Also, to every living thing of the earth, to every flying creature of the heavens, and to everything that moves on the earth, living creatures, I have given the green plants for food: thus.  And God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was extremely good. Thus, the evening and the morning: Day Six.”  Genesis 1:26-31   “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is clearly recognized by them, for God has revealed it to them.  For ever since the creation of the world the unseen things of Him are clearly perceived, being understood by the...

Left Behind

“Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit at My right hand, until I place Your enemies as Your footstool.  Jehovah shall send the staff of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies.  Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; in the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, You have the dew of Your youth.  Jehovah has sworn and will not regret it: You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.  The Lord at Your right hand shall shatter kings in the day of His wrath.  He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill them with dead bodies; He shall greatly shatter the heads over the earth.  He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; therefore He shall lift up the head.”  Psalms 110 Over the years I have seen many different takes on what happens when the Rapture occurs and during the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), better known as the Great Tribulation or Tribulation.  There has been many fanciful charts made up lining all of the catastrophes and judgments from God throughout a seven year period.  Numerous books have been written on the subject, even movies made depicting crisis after crisis after Christians have been Raptured.  Yet with the vast majority of these books, movies, studies and articles, while interesting, I have a large problem with. “Remember this, and be a man; refresh the memory of your heart, you who rebel.  Remember the former things from a long time ago; for I am the Mighty God, and there is no other; I am God, and no one else...

God’s Just Judgment

“For whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and whips every son whom He receives.”  Hebrews 12:6   “My son, do not reject the chastening of Jehovah, and do not loathe His correction; for whom Jehovah loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son with whom he is pleased.”  Proverbs 3:11-12   Without the chastening of the Lord, I don’t believe that our story would ever have had the necessity of being told.  The belief is that I was on the watchlists, noted by some in Washington DC, plus some investigative interest by the Michigan State Police, but without the Lord allowing chastising, my family would never have been one of the few that have been targeted, as of the moment.  A Believer, a true Christian, can not go on living a life that is contrary to following Jesus Christ and expect to not have consequences for their backslidden and carnal state.   Likewise the world can not continue on living as if there is no Creator and no consequences for their rebellion and sin.  While Believers are not without sin, continuing with a refusal to repent will lead to consequences from the Most High, if the offender is truly Saved.  God has provided the Way of Salvation through repentance and believing into His Son, Jesus Christ.  He has been patient with mankind, not wanting any to perish, but He was never going to tarry forever.   Understand that this is primarily written for those who have been Left Behind and now find themselves in the midst of the Tribulation.   “Do not be led astray, God is not mocked; for whatever a...

Even Unto Death

“For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even unto death.”  Psalms 48:14   This is being written as a warning to those who have been Left Behind.  The “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), commonly known as the Great Tribulation or Tribulation is upon the earth, the Rapture has now happened and those who truly were Christians are with the Lord.  There are people around the globe seeking answers, many presumably refusing to believe the lies purported by governments and fellow mankind.    A terrible time for all of mankind has begun as God is carrying out His Righteous judgment against Israel and the world.  Now choices have to be made, those who did not fully realize and deny the full true Gospel are likely awakened to a harsh reality, one that will have the hearts of many men failing them: they were Left Behind.   Americans probably have more hints and supposed knowledge about the last days because of the strong Judeo-Christian background of the United States.  Around the world many are Roman Catholics, Muslim, worship demons (Hindu) or other false religions, but in America there have always been some talk about the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the four horsemen, Armageddon, etc.  While much of that talk is speculation, false proclamations or even some interesting fictional scenarios, there is the belief amongst many generations that at some point ‘the end will come’.  This is written for those who are living in that time, the end has come!   You are now faced with a choice, if you are reading this early...

Nowhere to Hide!

“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!  For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”  Revelation 6:15-17   “Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us! and to the hills, Cover us!”  Luke 23:30   “And they shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, for the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble.  In that day a man shall throw his idols of silver and gold, which they made each man to bow down to, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the crevices of the rocks, and into the clefts of the cliffs, from the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble.”  Isaiah 2:19-21   A book could be written on the ways that governments and private corporations data mine every single individual in existence.  The mass surveillance (both public and private), the loss of privacy and how to actually work around that system would make for some interesting reading material.  The only problem is that such a book or series of articles would...

For the Time Will Come

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, desiring to hear pleasant things, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.”  2nd Timothy 4:3-4   The apostasy of the Church did not happen overnight, nor was it done in the dark.  There has always been false religions throughout the world, just as there are today.  The original Church did not have a institutional name attached to it, but was simply defined as a body of Believers, disciples of Jesus Christ.    “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”  1st Corinthians 12:27   People simply do not want the truth and the world makes it just too easy to go along with the lie.  Constantly our education system teaches children humanistic values, evolution theories and sways around from allowing discussion regarding on whether or not there is a God.  They go so far that they actually teach children about other religions found throughout the world, including their holy days, practices and suggesting that the children should find one, if any, that fits their desire.    Growing up I went to a lackluster churches that did not have a zeal for following God’s truths, for loving Christ and living a life that was fully obedient to Him.  There were compromises on every level in the church.  The music was not honoring to God, the activities for the youth group were more geared to entertainment than learning about God and the majority of the...
