In Matthew 6:33 we are told to seek out the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Mathew 22:37 says to love God with all our heart soul and mind. This tells me one thing. To place God first is everything that I do and this is how it should be for all Christians.
Why I mention this is the other day I was told that we must keep religion and politics separate. I say if you place God first above all else how can you keep God out? You can’t.
This is a tool that has been thrown out by those that wish us to not place God first. To deny God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. But as Christ said if you deny Him he will deny you to His Father, which leaves only one true recourse. We must place God in every aspect of our life and that includes politics. So any group or person that denies God is a person or group that Christians should not associate with. Why? Because we are not placing God first in all we do if we do give them support.
The time has come for God to separate the wheat from the chaff, but here is the catch.
Matthew 3:12 – Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Many do not realize they are chaff.
Revelation 3:15-16 – I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
In these verses two types of chaff are identified. The cold and the lukewarm.
The cold is obvious and simple to understand, those that deny God out right, but it is the lukewarm that are in for a shock. It is these that think they are one with God yet live their lives within and of the world. It is these that will have the hardest time when they realize they have turned their backs upon God.
2 Peter 2:20 – For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
It is the lukewarm that I have been tasked by God to reach, to get them to listen. To give them a chance to once again know that God loves them and wishes for them to be welcomed and embraced by Jesus, Christ our Savior.
In John 15: 5-6 Jesus makes it clear that those that follow Him can falter and fall. This is re-emphasized in 2 Peter. It makes it clear that the lukewarm knew God, but they loved the world more and so turned their back upon Him living in hypocrisy. Acting like they were of God but in reality lived within the world. Causing those that might have turned to God or turned to God sooner to question Christianity.
It is the lukewarm that are a curse upon Christianity which is why Christ in His Glorified form says He will spit them from Him. They are that much of an abhorrence to Him and His Father.
You cannot live to be a friend to the world and to God. It is one or the other. It is Black and white not grey. There is no middle ground. It is stand with God and call a sin a sin and tell those that live in sin that they should seek out Christ or you are a hypocrite, a grey, a lukewarm.
No human being is perfect, and I know fully well that myself, but we must place God first. This means we must follow the 12 commandments:
1) Place God first in all you do and how you think and live and love Him with all your heart. If God cannot see it you shall not do it and this means every single day of the week not just Sunday or Saturday.
2) Love they neighbor, which is everyone other than yourself, as you yourself would want to be treated. Simple I would want someone to tell me I am sinning, but it also means that if I would not treat myself badly why would I do that exact some badness to someone else.
3) God is the Lord your God
4) You shall have no other gods which includes sporting teams, celebrities, and money and material objects.
5) You shall not worship any graven images or likenesses
6) You shall not use the Lord’s name in vain – which includes “God” or “Jesus”
7) Remember and honor the Sabbath day which means if you don’t need to work on this day don’t and also go to church.
8) Honor your father and mother
9) You shall not murder, which includes abortions or euthanasia
10) You shall not steal, this means not only take from someone’s house, but take something from them without their consent or through lies
11) You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, again this is anyone and means you do not lie period
12) You shall not covet after something that does not belong to you nor are you able to acquire.
When placing God first it also means to follow His teachings. The entire Bible is meant to be read and followed. If it is called a sin within the Bible, then that is exactly what it is. If God says to stop sinning then you are to stop sinning.
Can you do this alone? No, you can only do this through accepting Jesus as your Savior and seeking out those that are truly likeminded.
Remember accepting any sin is living in and of the world and so you are seen as the enemy of God if you support it.
It came this past week from a place that had done it before. Great Britain. I don’t know what it is about this island, but this is not the first time this island has stood against tyranny. When Rome tried to conquer it the result was Hadrian’s Wall. When Germany tried to invade it in World War II the Battle of Britain stated to ended the lust of world rule that Hitler so strongly sought after.
As a result those humans that wish to rule humanity decided to be more subtle about how they changed humanity to turn them into willing slaves. They did it though education, look at today’s collages and you will see the hatred for the United States of America by those that attend them, yet they are citizens of this very nation, reaping in the soft luxuries they claim to so hate. Look at how movies and TV try to manipulate and twist the minds of people to belief that they tell the truth when a “story” is nothing more than a lie, a creation of a human mind. Not based in true reality, but meant to turn reality to become like it. An example, in 2007 the TV series about a woman president, it was meant to cause people to vote to Hilary Clinton.
Now this last week Britain has once again become a stop gap from totalitarianism.
Many times I hear people say that history bored them. Well, don’t you think this may have been done on purpose so that people would not truly learn history? Have you never heard the phrase: “If you do not learn from history you are destined to repeat it?” This is truth.
Throughout all of human’s recorded history we see time and again humans wish to dominate and rule other humans so that those in power can live in luxury will those that control and rule are noting but animals and garbage to be whipped, killed and burned. When Rome conquered crosses were places on roads everywhere bearing witness to their cruelty and a warning to follow them or face the same fate.
Attila the Hun decimated entire cites so that the next few gave in without a fight. The French revolution the guillotine and the parade of heads of all those that opposed them, which led to Napoleon, another person determined to rule over humanity.
Then we have Hitler. The man who caused the death of thirteen million people in concentration camps and ovens to burn the bodies. Six million of which were Jews, but did you know that he also killed true Christians, homosexuals as well as others that opposed his rule.
Now due to the weakening of the human will and mind through delicate manipulation by those on the left. Their desire for humans to have one world government with a select few at the top. It was accelerated when Barak Obama came to power instead of Hilary Clinton.
He and his communist friends moved and moved quickly. Within eight years the United States has become weak. Maybe to a degree it was already their but many that still felt this once proud nation still had some strength to do what was right and righteous were in place to guarantee this truth.
This weakness was the window those in the radical Muslim communities had on their side been preaching and teaching that the “west” was. This allowed ISIS to come into existence. A thorn in the side of the leftist who wished to have a peaceful conquest of humanity now found they had a war to deal with.
This however they manipulated by trying to change more laws which allowed them to take more control over the common folk. Yet the radical Muslim groups had their own plans which included flooding Muslims into the now open boarders of Europe. Opened by those on the left that wished to rule humanity in their little way.
Yet Great Britain was a thorn they did not count upon. They thought they had this island nation which once controlled through their own desire of world domination most of the known world. They though saw the writing upon the wall which was started by the American colonies which is now the United States of America. Yes we can go into talking about how this nation too grew by dominating what they considered lesser humans, but that is the core theme of this entire article. Humans wishing to rule humans. This has been ongoing since Babylon and was predicted and promised within the Bible. It will continue until all that are written within the Book Life are accounted for.
What people do not realize is that everything that has happened and will happen has only one goal. The fact that humanity will bow down to God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. Humans think they are in control, but this is not so.
Daniel 4:17 – For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”
They think this is their idea and that they are in control. Yet each that think this way at many points in their lives had the chance to do it the right way. To do it God’s way. That was shown when the people of Great Britain voted to leave the EU. Yet those that wish to control and manipulate their fellow humans are blind to this truth and these facts.
They do not see that they have sealed their fate to eternal damnation. They have blinded themselves to seeing this temporal world we all exists within is nothing more than a proving ground to see if each and every one of us will willingly and in all humility bow a knee to our Creator. Yet they may think they are going into heaven if they even belief there is a heaven. I phrased it like that on purpose by the way. For those that truly understand the Bible know that “heaven” is only a holding area for those that have proven themselves to be true servants of the living God. Our true destiny is yet to be fulfilled throughout all of God’s creation, the universe and it will require bodies that are perfect and immortal to be able to accomplish these goals for God’s glory. Yet those that wish to rule human. Those that wish to live only for this temporal world. Those that wish to live and love their sinful lives. There is only one destination. A destination I wish none to partake of. The pit of fire and eternal agony and undying worms that will eat upon their flesh. Yet this is the fate they have chosen for themselves. For they wish to rule and wish to sin more than they wish to serve and turn from sin.
So for those that chose to leave the EU in Great Britain. I hope and pray your actions have caused more to awaken to the truth, and that this once proud nation, the United States of America, will awaken from it slumber unto to death before it is too late.
Due to many not truly knowing, teaching or understanding the Bible, women are being taught to wear a mask.
Now what is this mask you ask? Makeup.
They make their hair all fancy in none natural ways. They cover their face in makeup so thick that their true beauty is gone and what is left is a variation of clown face paint.
It is another one of those things where they must make themselves appealing to the world, to the temporal, to the fleeting. A woman’s true beauty will be seen the day they are given their eternal and perfect body. Yet they strive for this perfection in the corruptible. Some that will wrinkle and fade with age as all that is imperfect will do.
In actuality a person’s real beauty does not come from the outside, but from within. If a woman is beautiful within themselves it will shine for all the world to see. There is no need for greasepaint upon their faces. For the use of greasepaint is only good for those that wish to entertain for a brief moment, not to endure for billions upon billions of year.
Seek out the true meaning of the Bible and understand that whatever rewards you seek upon this temporal plain of existence will rot and decay away into dust including the external beauty. Seek out Jesus Christ so that you may see your true beauty that will radiate for all eternity. For we are all promised an eternal body, but few will ever see their true loveliness. The rest will be covered in worm infested burning skin and their beauty will never be seen for they never truly had any in the first place.
I keep coming back to this topic because this is a burden upon my heart, given to me by God. The importance is extreme. Why? Far too many out there think they can change a group that is denying God.
I am trying to get these people to understand where they are placing themselves with God. They keep thinking of what they can see about them. Thinking it is in their power to change this group, but it is too far gone to be redeemed. What is now of import is their own place with God.
What is this group? The Democratic Party yet many that call themselves “Christian” refuse to leave it. Here is what the Bible says about those that deny Jesus has the Democratic Party has done:
Matthew 10: 32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Since this group has officially denied God by removing any mention of Him within their official documents and items listed within the public domain they will find themselves denied by Christ unto God.
This is where people say: “Well I can change it from the inside” or “this doesn’t affect me because I am a ‘Christian.’” BUUZZZZZZZ wrong answer.
James 4: 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
To do good you must not support sins that are called sins within the Bible. If you support a group that proudly supports Abortion (human sacrifice), Homosexuality, lying as well as others sins and most importantly the denial that there is a God. You yourself even though you profess to be against it are in turn guilty of these sins for you knowingly support these sins even though you yourself are not doing them. It makes no difference, you are denying God by proxy and so Christ denies you by proxy.
Additional Note added 6/24/16: This can now be said in part of the Republican Party as well.
Could you honestly say you would make it into heaven on the second blowing of the horn?
I can’t even say yes to that question and I am closer to God then I have ever been in my entire life.
If I can’t honestly answer that can you?
I look about the United States of America. A nation that 80% of the population says they are “Christian” yet most of these do not go to church. Have not read the Bible. Constantly break the Commandants yet I bet they just said yes to my question above. Well got some bad news for you. Sorry wrong answer.
When I was first Born-again I had a dream. You see I know without a doubt that I am a dreamer of dreams (Acts 2:17), yet I still doubt making the rapture and this dream is the reason why.
I dreamt I was being herded through a store, the racks were empty and were torn apart, but I could tell it was a store at one time. Before and behind me were others like myself. We were dressed in a grey jumpsuit and we were chained together.
Standing upon one of the display racks was a bald man covered in tattoos. He used a whip to keep us ever moving forward.
Suddenly cheering and howling erupted behind me. I turned to the end of the aisle behind me and there stood a twelve year old boy. He too was covered in tattoos as well and he held up in one hand the severed head of a blonde woman by her long hair.
This dream has haunted me for decades. Due to this I doubt my place in the Rapture, but I still strife to serve God for I know it is the right thing to do and why it must be done. So those that are the grey (lukewarm) and the barren branch will awaken to the errors of their ways and turn white hot for God bearing fruit that is sweet to our Savior. (Revelation 3:14-22)
This is why I ask this question about if the Rapture were today would you be standing before God and Christ or would you be down here in bewilderment and shock for having been found wanting by God.
Per Strong’s Greek Lexicon a part of Strong’s Concordance a “hypocrite” is an actor under an assumed character.
An actor. People are acting like they are “Christian” and if they gave out Oscars or Golden Globes for it there would be a lot of statutes being handed out and placed upon mantles.
Being “Christian” is not an act. It is an actual change of behavior. The person you once were no longer exists. Yet most live the exact same life they have lived since birth and call themselves “Christian” when in reality they are “hypocrites.” A very sad commentary for most of Christendom and explains why so many do not wish to become “Christian” because they see the hypocrisy while those that are the hypocrites are blind to their own living lie.
My wife and I had discussion yesterday about why do people push their children to be the “best” of everything. To exceed not only themselves, as was the original ideal of the American parent, but to exceed all others and to dominate. Either in sports, entertainment and business. This is actually not what we were taught less than fifty year ago. Now it seems to be the theme of everything. Form prosperity preachers to infomercials.
This is actually not what the Bible teaches. Now as an example I want to look at 1 John 3:17:
“If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?”
This is what it says in the new living translation, but look at it in the KJV as well:
“But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”
Now I want to look at the word “but.”
But – de – a weak adversative particle, generally placed second in its clause; but, on the other hand, and.
“On the other hand.” As you see in the NLT version they used the word “if.”
Now let’s look at the conversion between Jesus and the rich man:
Matthew 19:16 – Someone came to Jesus with this question: “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 “Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.” 18 “Which ones?” the man asked. And Jesus replied: “‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. 19 Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 20 “I’ve obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. “What else must I do?” 21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”
“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”
So if Jesus Himself says it is extremely hard for a rich person to get into heaven, why would you seek after it? You shouldn’t, yet millions do and only an extremely few succeed. Or do they “succeed”? According to the Bible, they don’t. They are actually failures. They have failed themselves, they have failed their children. Why? Because they have turned their backs upon God.
They say they are following the commandments, yet Jesus has asked them to sell it all and follow Him. They mouth the words that they follow Him, but are not practicing what they preach, they are hypocrites. They are the lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-22).
If you wish your children to be better than you, do not seek to make them exceed in sports, knowledge or business. Teach them the Bible. Teach them God. Teach them the teaching that Jesus Christ gave to us all. Not only the love, but also the anger and the judgement that Jesus Himself spoke of. Do you know Jesus spoke more about the pit of fire than he did about love?
Yet more today say we must love all. This is not what the Bible teaches. It teaches we must love those that are our brother and sisters IN CHRIST. We are to turn away from the world and those things that are of the world, like money a.k.a. riches.
Teach your children to be average and God fearing and loving. Then you have made you children better than you and you will most likely be blessed.
Many ignore my articles, and I know why. Because they view them as negative. Well I am not going to argue with that point. Why? Because I just can’t be positive. Why? Because I refuse to bury my head in the sand. I and others that echo my message which there are more than you realize are seeing the truth that comes from the Bible.
Hosea had this problem as well. He was instructed by God to marry a whore, and of course she was disloyal to him, but he never gave up upon her. Not only that he gave warnings to Israel that they had turned themselves into whores, but God would not abandon them.
Well the United States of America is now a nation of whores, but Jesus will not abandon those that truly seek to be His loyal servants.
To be a loyal servant you MUST place God at the core of your every action. Form the words you speak to the way you drive, to the way you raise your family and the way you interact with your co-workers as well as bosses.
The moment you care more for sports, more for what celebrities said or did, you have become a whore. The moment you break the speed limit you are whore. The moment you do not place others before yourself you are a whore.
I cannot turn away from God.
I cannot turn away from Jesus.
So I must be continue to be ignored by the whores, and you know what I don’t care. For teaching the truth is more important to me.
All Glory unto God Almighty and His Son my Savior!
What is it you are seeking? What are your goals?
Are they to seek out wealth? Are you trying to seek fame? Do you seek to have your name go down through history?
If any of these are your goals then I have bad news for you: They are of this world and anything of this world is really not worth pursuing.
You want to know a couple of my goals.
1) To find someone to share all that I encounter. All the good and the bad. All the wonders and horrors. All the happy times and sad. (goal met and accomplished)
2) To see all the wonders of the universe. (heading in the right direction for this [I think])
“How it is possible to see all the wonders of the universe?” you ask.
Simple. Turn to God and serve Him. Follow the teaching of the Bible and turn from that which is called evil within it.
“You didn’t answer my question!” you state.
Actually yes I did. For God has promised all that server Him an eternal life. Are we going to spend it on this speck of a planet when God created the entire universe? No we are not. We will server God throughout His entire creation. What will we do there only time will tell, and since a few billion years is a long time. I have a feeling I my just get a chance to see all the wonders of the universe. Leaving events in this temporal life behind.
100 years verses 1000000000000000000000000000 years, which is greater?
