Sunglasses On

“Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has been released from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but in the will of God.  For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in licentiousness, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.  In this regard, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same overflow of dissipation, blaspheming.  They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.”  1st Peter 1:1-5   All over the world people have their sunglasses on in regards to the Truth.  They are blinded to the reality that is all around them.  They can not see because they refuse to see.   They are willingly ignorant to the world around them, to God’s Truth.    “And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?  He answered and said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been given.  For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.  Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do...

Awaiting Judgment

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, without sin, unto salvation.”  Hebrews 9:27-28   As people lives their life accordingly, they do as they want, they live as they want, they are whether knowingly or unknowingly awaiting judgment.  Many times a person throughout their life will consider the possibility that they will stand before God, for all will stand before God (Rev. 20:12).    However, for numerous people, the problem is the same.  They hear God’s Truth, they hear portions of the Gospel, they hear a pastor preach or read something and they ponder.  They ponder whether or not there are truth to these things, they ponder whether or not they are on their way to Hell and if what they hear is true.    Some people on the other hand simply believe, and from time to time they plan on doing these things, they plan on repenting and by faith believing into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  What they don’t realize is that they are awaiting judgment.   Right now every man, woman and child are awaiting judgment.  They are condemned, there is no hope for them, without Christ.  Should they be absent from the body, they will not be home with the Lord (2nd Corinthians 5:8).  Right now all men everywhere, who have not repented and believed the Gospel, through only Jesus Christ one can be Saved, are awaiting judgment.   “Therefore remember...

Dead Wrong!

“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices divination, or conjuring, or fortunetelling, or sorcery, or one who charms magic spells, or a medium, or a wizard, or one who calls up the dead.  For all who do these things are an abomination unto Jehovah, and because of these abominations Jehovah your God is dispossessing them before you.”  Deuteronomy 18:10-12   Apparently we have fallen so far in apostasy that what should be clear lines regarding God’s Truth and the things of Satan, have been so blurred that there is now so-called ‘christian’ psychics.  The first I heard about such a thing was in our local newspaper in Kalispell, Montana.   I had seen the advertisements, the large signs pop up locally for a couple of buildings where psychic readings are being given out.  Now in our society, such things are not a surprise, but when I saw a local write-up in the newspaper, I was shocked to hear that such things are considered to be Christian by some.   The psychic, while holding what appears to be Tarot cards, claims that the gift that she has is from God.  She proclaims to hold to Christianity, praying for every meal, and makes known that she does not believe she can abuse the gift that she claims God has given her, or else He will take it away.  This abuse seems to be related to self gain, rather than so-called helping others.   “You believe that God is One. You do well. Even the demons...

Dear Loved One,

“The righteous perishes, and no one lays it to heart, and merciful men are taken away; no one considers that the righteous is taken away from the face of evil.  He shall enter into peace; they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.”  Isaiah 57:1-2   This has to be one of the hardest letters to pen, but my conviction as a Christian, as a follow of Christ, one who has repented and by faith believed into Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I must do so.    I know you don’t want to hear it, I know you don’t want to have anything to do with Jesus, while you might acknowledge God, you only would be willing to acknowledge that He exists, but unwilling to actually yield to Him.  You just don’t want to have to change, you don’t want to repent, you want to live your way.  The problem with that is you were Created, you can’t live your way.   Does man allow his pets to do as they want or do they not train them to use litter boxes, etc.?  Do people allow their children to run their households or do they set rules for them to follow?  Do managers allow the employees to do as they wish, work as they want and create their own rules, or do they enforce rules, set schedules and assign workloads?  So how then is it we as humanity can live as we want and not follow God’s guidebook, the Bible, and not repent and believe the Gospel, that we might be saved?  ...

Know No Evil

“Love is longsuffering and is kind; love does not envy; love does not boast itself, is not puffed up; does not behave indecently, does not seek its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.”  1st Corinthians 13:4-8a   The other day a group of us listened to a guest sermon of a pastor who has a Church in Australia.  The speaker of the sermon went over several items dealing with apostasy in the churches, as well as the pagan origins of the Roman Catholic Church.  As I sat there and listened, suddenly what had been on my mind to write about, this article, became firmly founded.  Though this speaker would be ridiculed or shown the exit door in most any church in America, he was spot on, in fact he could have gone further.   If one thinks about it, and we are going to address those who call themselves Christians, to know no evil is a far cry from the direction that the apostate churches currently have headed.  Let’s set the foundation for this topic, let this argument sink down into your soul and understand just how far away from righteousness that those who call themselves Christians really are.   “For no one is able to lay any other foundation than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”  1st Corinthians 3:11   So we will start off with the firm foundation, which is Jesus Christ.  In Him we are Saved, through...

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...
