Salvation is not guaranteed, no matter what you may have been told


Now once you get done laughing and are still here reading. Allow me to explain the title of article, and since the best place to start this is with the words of Jesus Christ Himself:
Revelation 3:5 – All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.
Now some of you will be saying. What does this have to do with not being assured of one’s salvation? EVERYTHING! Let’s look at the King James:
“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”
“and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,”
First off note the phrasing of the sentence. It implies that Jesus has the power to add and remove the names that are listed within the Book of Life. “I will not blot out.”
Now let’s break this down further.
Blot out – exaleipho – to rub (smear) out, i.e. completely remove (wipe away); obliterate; remove totally from a previous state with the outcome of being blotted out (erased).
To be erased they must have their name placed within it to begin with. Now let’s again turn to the words of Jesus.
John 15:1 – “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. 3 You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. 5 Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. 7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.”
“Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.”
“Anyone who does not remain in me.” This identifies one of the focal points of God’s gift given to all of humanities. That being free-will. It states that we have a choice in our relationship with Christ and through Him, God. It is a true inter-relationship in which each person has a say. However, Jesus will remain loyal, on His part, yet humans do show what is most important to themselves. This goes to teachings within the Bible that states is it not all works, as well as not all faith, but an equal measure of both. This is what allows us to bear fruit upon our branch. However if we go outside of this balance then we no longer bear fruit. Also if we turn away from what the Bible teaches, especially those given by Jesus Christ Himself, then we no longer bear fruit.
This guidance made by Jesus Christ Himself in one of His private teachings to the apostles makes it clear. If you no longer have an interactive relationship with Him, then you wither and die. At this point God Himself removes you from His Son, and you are cast into the fire. The implication of the word “fire” is as one would expect, the fires of hades.
So if you are of the vine of Christ, you are saved. Your name is written in the Book of Life. Then your branch is broken off from the vine, from Christ. You are no longer a part of the body. Your name is removed from the Book of Life. So as you can see, Salvation is not guaranteed.
What is needed by all that wish to be within the vine or to remain within the vine is to learn the Bible and to not just say “I am Christian,” but to live a Christian life and lifestyle. Not just through their words, but their actions. From obeying the speed limit to living not within wealth and luxury, but in moderation. Saving the majority of your wealth and then to give to those in need before yourself. This world, this temporal plain of existence we now live within is not where our minds should be focused, but on God and the eternal life that is to come.

A look into the transfiguration of Jesus


Due to some recent things. I felt there was a need to take a close look into the transfiguration of Jesus Christ. It is shown within three of the Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke.
Matthew 17:1 – Six days later Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, James and John, and led them up a high mountain to be alone. 2 As the men watched, Jesus’ appearance was transformed so that his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light. 3 Suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus. 4 Peter exclaimed, “Lord, it’s wonderful for us to be here! If you want, I’ll make three shelters as memorials—one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 5 But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.” 6 The disciples were terrified and fell face down on the ground. 7 Then Jesus came over and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” 8 And when they looked up, Moses and Elijah were gone, and they saw only Jesus.
The beginning of this in-depth starts with verse three. So let’s look at it in the KJV:
“And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.”
There appeared – optanomai – become seen (appear), I appear, am seen (by), let myself be seen (by). See horaō – see, often with metaphorical meaning: “to see with the mind” (i.e. spiritually see), i.e. perceive (with inward spiritual perception).
The three humans present at this event, Peter, James and John, by the mere fact that Jesus was transformed to His true appearance allowed them to gain temporary access into the non-temporal plain of existence. This enabled them to see both Moses and Elijah who are in paradise otherwise known as heaven. Jesus in His true form is as powerful as God, and so can breach the veil between realities.
This was the first time John encountered this. The second time was more extensive.
Revelation 1:1 – This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants the events that must soon take place. He sent an angel to present this revelation to his servant John, 2 who faithfully reported everything he saw. This is his report of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:10 – It was the Lord’s Day, and I was worshiping in the Spirit. Suddenly, I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet blast. 11 It said, “Write in a book everything you see, and send it to the seven churches in the cities of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.” 12 When I turned to see who was speaking to me, I saw seven gold lampstands. 13 And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest. 14 His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. 15 His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. 16 He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.
To look further into John extended vision continue to read the book of Revelation. However the main topic here is the transfiguration.
The purpose was to show these three chose men within the disciples, that Jesus truly is the Son of God. Peter however went too far. First he acted like Jesus was His Father, and second he desired to make altars or shelters. This causes God to make His presence known by the appearance of a cloud of light. In Mathew and Mark the words of God are the same. In Luke they are slightly different. So let’s look at these:
Matthew 17:5 – But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.” (NLT)
KJV – “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”
Mark 9:7 – Then a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to him.” (NLT)
KJV – “And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.”
Luke 9:35 – Then a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. Listen to him.” 36 When the voice finished, Jesus was there alone. They didn’t tell anyone at that time what they had seen. (NLT)
KJV – “And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.”
This shows the problem with translations of translations. So as should be those that truly seek to know the teachings of the Bible, we go to the Greek.
My beloved Son – mou agapetos huios
Agapetos – divinely-loved; beloved (“loved by God”)
Now the word “son” or “huios” as it is in the Greek opens up a whole range of information. That not only deals with Jesus, but those that chose to follow Him.
These are the definitions of the word “huios:”
(1) A son (by birth or adoption); (figuratively) anyone sharing the same nature as their Father. For the believer, becoming a son of God begins with being reborn (adopted) by the heavenly Father – through Christ (the work of the eternal Son)
(2) (“son”) emphasizes likeness of the believer to the heavenly Father, i.e. resembling His character more and more by living in faith
(3) (“son”) highlights the (legal) right to the Father’s inheritance, i.e. as the believer lives in conformity with the Father’s nature (purpose).
We know that in this instance it is God referring directly to Jesus has His birth son. As we look at these definitions though we gain an insight into how ALL that call themselves “Christian” should behave and relate to God.
It clearly states that once you are a “Christian” your life changes. It starts to become a reflection of not only Jesus, but God Himself.
So those that become “Christian” and seek after worldly wealth and big homes, are in reality NOT becoming Christ like. They are becoming just the opposite.
To become “Christ like” we seek after moderation. We live modestly. We do not seek to bring attention to ourselves, but to God and His Son. We obey the laws of the land, like going the speed limit. We do not join the speed crowd to “go with the flow of traffic.” That is in essence saying I am sinning because everyone else is sinning. Again this is not a reflection of God. However this insight has distracted from true course of this article.
So the words of God make it very clear. Jesus IS His Son and all that he teaches we are to listen to and apply to our lives so that in time, as we grow in our faith, we too can hear the words from God Himself.
“This is my beloved child.”

The burning hatred


It is something that has plagued Christendom. Here is an example:
Patzia, The Making of the New Testament, 158
“Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome… Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty: then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind.”
As we know Nero framed the Christians for the burning of Rome. He proceeded to use their persecution as a source of entertainment for the masses. With the rise of ISIS this type of “entertainment” is on the rise once again. We are also seeing this starting to be played out by the behavior of those within groups like the “Antifa” in the United States.
A hatred that has been fed and manipulated by those that wish to remove God from this country. Through the removal of it from the schools and public venue.
The real problem though is that most of those that call themselves “Christian” also are contributing to this hatred. Why? Because they do not truly live a Christian live nor even attempt to try too. However in their eyes they are “Christian,” not realizing they are actually causing and creating the hatred because of their hypocrisy.

Why is there “chance?”


Not “chance,” as in gambling, but “chance,” as in why something happens beyond what is perceived to be within our control. However, it is in part due to your actions and those of other. This is a byproduct of free-will, and in many cases humanities inherent nature to sin.
Our choices and our actions through free-will is what governs our activities every single day. From getting up in the morning to driving to work and either going straight home or doing something totally different. At the same time those that live about you are doing close to the same as you. Their action may take them in their own direction. You will most likely never see them. You will most likely never encounter them. Yet here is where chance comes in. You meet them in a way in a store, at the gas station, driving down the road. Then one day, one moment, your lives interact through your free-will choices and chance enters your life. You have a wreck for example. You meet your future husband or wife. This is the chance created by free-will.
This explains all the happiness, all the sorrow. All the greatest moments in history to the greatest horrors in human history. All due to the chance of free-will. This alone, this chance, should be enough to confirm the existence of God. This also shows that the teachings within the Bible understands this basic element within God’s instilment of free-will within all of us. Does this fact make God responsible for the best and the worst? No.
What it does show and confirm, that it is up to each individual person, through their free-will to decide where they wish to proceed. To make the right choice, they must be informed of ALL their options. ALL their choices, be it good or evil in result. A choice that shows all aspects of humanity, be that of believing in God of the Bible to those of other religions. To those that deny the existence of God.
The Bible makes it clear that we are to teach all children. However parents for nearly one hundred years have neglected or intentionally failed in this task. So thousands if not millions have no concept of what is the right or wrong choices they make on not only their daily lives and interactions but ultimately their very salvation itself. So as this misinformation continues; the increase in darker, sadder, more horrendous events within chance occur. This is as it has always been. As the cycles of understanding turn to misunderstanding. So too does the cycles of violence, increasing and decreasing as the true teachings of the Bible are learned and then forgotten. Violence increasing as the teachings of the Bible are forgotten and then decreases when they are remembered.
All due to the corruption within us due to both Adam and Eve eating of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. All humanity lives in sin and only through the acceptance of Jesus as our Savior are we cleansed. However even though our souls are clean we still live within a sinful body, and due to free-will we will still have encounters with others in humanity be it good or bad. It is still chance.

False imagery of Christians


This has become one of the main tools of those in the TV and motion picture industry. What is really sad is that so many buy into it. Mainly, because they have not been exposed to any true from of Christianity. This is one of the effects that is the result of removing God from the school systems and off of the streets.
In a recent show I was watching that was a BBC production. The lead character described a so called “Christian” couple as cultic. They then proceeded to show them as sexually deviant as well as liars and thieves. Since Christianity on whole is on a mass decline not only within Great Britain, but all of Europe. There are other factors involved here, but that is a topic for another time. People are buying the bill of goods they are being sold. Just for the record, being Christian and being married doesn’t mean the couples refrain from sex. If they love each other then they will make love, gee and they may even do it in the woods….. As long as they thought they were totally alone, that is. Being “Christian” is not becoming prudish as is another image that is being shoved upon the masses. Christians are ordinary people, living ordinary lives. Those that truly follow the teaching of the Bible, just have respect for all others that equates to a version of common courtesy.
This imagery of portraying those that decide to follow God as something that is lower, something that is perverted, and something that is base and sickening. These are the tools of those that in actuality are afraid and scared. I wish to show you 2 Peter 2 and show you has those of the world and false teachers, those that deny God, behave:
1 – But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. 3 In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. 4 For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the Day of Judgment. 5 And God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment. So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood. 6 Later, God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. He made them an example of what will happen to ungodly people. 7 But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him. 8 Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day. 9 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. 10 He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority. These people are proud and arrogant, daring even to scoff at supernatural beings without so much as trembling. 11 But the angels, who are far greater in power and strength, do not dare to bring from the Lord a charge of blasphemy against those supernatural beings. 12 These false teachers are like unthinking animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed. They scoff at things they do not understand, and like animals, they will be destroyed. 13 Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done. They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight. They are a disgrace and a stain among you. They delight in deception even as they eat with you in your fellowship meals. 14 They commit adultery with their eyes, and their desire for sin is never satisfied. They lure unstable people into sin, and they are well trained in greed. They live under God’s curse. 15 They have wandered off the right road and followed the footsteps of Balaam son of Beor, who loved to earn money by doing wrong. 16 But Balaam was stopped from his mad course when his donkey rebuked him with a human voice. 17 These people are as useless as dried-up springs or as mist blown away by the wind. They are doomed to blackest darkness. 18 They brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. With an appeal to twisted sexual desires, they lure back into sin those who have barely escaped from a lifestyle of deception. 19 They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you. 20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
These verses reflect people not only in the times this letter was written, but have those within the TV and motion picture industry today. They are also false teachers for they have perverted the ways of righteousness in the ways and teachings of the Lord. Which true Christians strive to follow as best they can.
Christianity is not a threat to true civilization, it is the opposite. Those that are a threat to civilization are those that see Christianity as something that is to be seen as sordid, and despicable. For deep down inside within their own souls a part of them knows the real truth, and it scares them to a point that they must lash out at that which is a threat to what they see as their happiness. Even though this so-called happiness will lead to an eternal and undying sorrow.

Millennial outreach #11


Why is it seen as a choice?
I am writing this outreach to help those that have not heard or understand why Christians see homosexuality as a choice and not “your nature,” i.e. the way you are born.
Hebrews 9:22 – In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.
Revelation 1:5 – and from Jesus Christ. He is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the dead, and the ruler of all the kings of the world. All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us.
Ephesians 1:7 – He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
I use these three verses as a jumping board. With them we see that the only way God can “see” us is without sin, and that is accomplished through the blood of Jesus Christ. Now read this:
Jeremiah 1:5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
So how could Jeremiah have been seen? In his time a lamb, a symbol of Jesus Christ, had to be sacrificed to be seen by God. Yet he was seen within the womb.
The implication is clear. We are sinless within the womb and only become exposed to sin upon birth. This is also backed up by the teaching of “free-will.”
“Free-will” is the understanding that each person decides their fate, which again is reinforced by teachings in the Bible of the importance to teach our children of the Bible including what is seen as sin and what is not.
As you can tell it is a complex and interwoven web of knowledge that must be instilled and taught. This also explains why the age of accountability does not begin until thirteen. Thus the reason for the Bar Mitzvah and the Bat Mitzvah at thirteen for those of the Jewish faith. It also explains how God sees those that do harm to children be it physical or mental has done a grievous sin (Matthew 18:6).
So let’s recap slightly:
1) In the womb a person is pure and sinless, so cannot come out of the womb already burdened with a sin within them.
2) We are to teach children the Bible and what is right and wrong, or in other words, what is a sin and what is not a sin.
3) Why? Because of free-will. Our ability to choose if we will sin or not sin and so bare the responsibly for our choices.
Now let’s look at how “nature” is seen by Christianity. For this we need to look to Romans 1. It is a long read but it fully addresses this perfectly.
18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. 21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 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. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. 28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.
“For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities” This is referring to nature. God created nature. God is nature.
“For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities” God allowed this to use their free-will to do as they please. So whenever you see something bad happen and say “Where is God?” This is your answer. It is not God but the person or persons themselves basically flipping off God.
Now we come to the core of this post.
“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. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
In the King James it comes this way:
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
“Which is against nature”
Now it will be here that someone say “There is homosexuality in wildlife.”
Those that say this are echoing the verses you just read. They “knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.”
Comparing a being that can build buidlings, create machines, television and fly to the moon with the animals that live off the “need” impulses. The need to eat, because they hunger. The need to drink because they thirst. The need to breed because their system causes them to need a mate, is utterly foolish.
All species upon this planet are meant to propagate their kind and continue that said species. This is the closest we can be compared to wildlife. With that base comparison any that do not cause offspring are against nature. Only a male mating with a female causes propagation. So any that choose through free-will not to live this way are against nature, and so are against God and so are living in sin. This is why Christians see homosexuality have chosen to do so and are living in sin.

The “White Knight Syndrome” vs. being a good Christian man


re-post
Recently I was described as having “White Knight Syndrome.” So I got curious and looked to see if there really was such a thing and guess what, there is. The way it was described in short was a man that seeks out several women at once that wants to rescue them from their problems and feels that women are weak and require a strong man to come to their aid amongst other non-appealing traits.
I read this and just said “You have to be kidding.”
I really do not fit into this model not even in the slightest. Being a Christian I have learned through study and pray as well as trial and error, that if you wish to be the head of the household you are in fact becoming the leader of it. It says plainly in the Bible that if you lead you must become a servant. So as a Christian male and head of a household I am to place all within this household before myself and so be a servant unto them.
Now that does not mean you become a butler and wait upon everyone in the house, catering to their every need like I have read some women actually want, which also describes my fist wife. Being a Christian man, I know that I am to strive to make those within my home happy. I do this through working a job and providing an income. I do this by providing a roof over our heads. I do this by see that all are fed, clothed and given a good education if they are my children.
This must all be done before I consider doing anything for myself. Does this mean I have to rescue the woman I call my wife? No. Admittedly, my two marriages have not worked out, one due to my first wife wanting a butler, which she now has. The second is a bit more difficult to explain, but there was really no “White Knight Syndrome” involved. By the way, this is where the part of “trial and error” came into play as I mentioned earlier.
What I do know is that being a Christian man is that you care, especially for those that you love and cherish. Sure, you would like to “rescue” them from time to time, but that cannot happen all the time. They need to fall then pick themselves up, and be allowed to turn to God and seek Him out.

(UPDATE)

When I wrote this I was divorced for the 2nd time. I have since remarried. I found it interesting and prove that God is real in this third instance.
I knew I couldn’t be unmarried for I knew I would live in sin. However, I had grown unhappy with how things were going with looking for someone new. I turned it over to God. That same week, my now wife turned over her frustration on the same issue to God. We then after being on “Christian Mingle” for two year found each other there for the first time.
My wife is my soulmate and the person God sent to rescue me, not the other way around. I have never been happier in my life. All praise and glory to the Lord Almighty through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.

Review: Assassin’s Creed (2016)


A movies based off the video game series of the same name. A man finds out that his DNA contains the live memories of all his ancestors. Discovers himself being controlled by those that are the enemy of his forefathers. Even though I have reached an age of maturity and education. I did find the story intriguing.
Once again I saw the typical manipulation through imagery and some truth twisted to give a false narrative, which in turn would cause people to think incorrectly. As was well established during World War II, movies do influence how people think, act and behave. This movie though interesting to watch still maintained this same base approach.
The villains. The Templars. In actuality an Illuminati like Socialist shadow organization, yet presented as those that governor religion. Controlled and run by Socialist elitist. Their main leader a female with nearly the same hair cut as Hilary Clinton. Not a coincidence by the way. She makes clear when she is first seen that the human masses are ripe for control and manipulation through their selfishness and desires to please only themselves. The purist of Socialist dogma.
The heroes. The Assassins. Anarchist, not governor by any rules yet their ultimate goal is to protest free-will.
Here is the kicker though. God created humanity with free-will on purpose. For His ultimate desire is to have those that follow Him and accept His Son as their Savior do so freely and willingly due to free-will. For God, unlike those of the villainy within this movie, wishes to have true and complete fellowship with those that accept the teachings of the Bible.
Now I have never been a fan of religions, and anyone who truly understands the Bible will agree with me. For within religions you end up with those like the villains of the movies that wish to manipulate and control the masses. This was born out in the early years of the Catholic Church which led to the Reformation. Why else does it explain, why when we goes to the original wording of the New Testament we look to the Greek and not the Latin? For the Latin version had been twisted and perverted to be nothing but control of the masses, and not the true teachings of the Bible.
But enough of that.

The trap “freedom” otherwise known as a lack of restrictions


The left has been slowly destroying the truth for over a hundred years now. Twisting the truth and blocking it from as many as possible. They promise you the freedom to live your life as you want to. They allow you to live a life that those that call themselves “Christian” say is wrong and something that will make you unsavory. They make those that follow the teachings of the Bible as the villain, evil, monsters. This is the trap, these are the lies.
It is something that is difficult to comprehend in just one post, but it is something those reading this need to seriously start to wonder about. What if what you have been told is not true? What if the Bible does have truth to it?
Here is the thing. You at this moment feel that everything is wonderful. You are living free. You are living a life the way you want. Free to live it as you see fit. Without rules and constraints, but is this the real freedom that has been drilled into most of the populous of the world itself? Ponder upon that for a few moments.

This life gives you a lot of things. People seek after wealth, importance and other things. They wish to live like those that appear on the screens and desire to be like them. They limit all their wants and desires to this lifetime.
However, what if this one hundred or so years is not all there is. What if there is more to this existence than this mere life time? What if this life time is only a test? A test to see if we are going to live the true “freedom.” A freedom that would allow us to fly and live experiences that people only dream about. That they write about in books, TV and movies. These “fantasies” that they call only dreams.
I can honestly say that I don’t know what will be what is beyond what is written in the Bible. One thousand years after the return of Christ and after the Great White Throne Judgment the eternal life times the Bible promises will begin for all.
You have read, seen and dreamed about humanity elevating to a higher level. This is part of the mechanism of the trap. A promise in a fantasy, a dream, but it is a reality that all will reach. All will accomplish. But here is the problem. Why is there a trap?
There is a choice that all must make, but many, due to the events of the last hundred years, aren’t even aware there really is a choice. Most don’t understand, nor do they ever wish to know the Bible. Many have been told it is false teachings. That it is something from a time when humanity was ignorant. So how can they see what or what is not real. What or what is not a trap.
Are you willing to have your life torn apart because you have been living what you thought to be true, but in reality is a lie? Are you willing to take a chance to not live one hundred years but billions? What awaits in the future for those that choose to follow the teaching of the Bible? What if the Bible is totally true? Then this life you now live without Jesus Christ is the trap. True traps when you try to escape them are painful. They hurt they tear and they destroy, but if you escape you are happier than you were while you were in the trap. Are you willing to take the chance?

The ultimate test…. How is your score today?


What many have never realized is that the very life they are living at this very moment is a test, the ultimate test. It is the ultimate puzzle, the ultimate question and answer, the ultimate essay, the ultimate thesis.
Many will say no it is not, but yes it is. They will then say there is no instruction, no rules so it is no test, but yes there is. We are told within it that all must teach the children, before the age of accountability, these rules so when the time comes they will be well prepared on which turn within the maze of life they should take on that particular moment on a particular day. Many times there will be multiple choice questions given and it is up to the person to answer. Sometimes with only less than a second to respond then there will be other days that it can take minutes, hours, days and even years to answer the question correctly. It is a test that has a passing grade and a failing grade, and far too many that think they are passing are failing at this time. Because it is either or, not somewhere in the middle, for there is no middle.
But what is this instruction manual? What is the grading system? It is the Bible and the grading system is following it and not doing what it says you must not do. Yet many go about this world today saying: “that is a lie that is not true. I can live in my sin and God will still accept me as I am.” BBBUUUUZZZZZ …. Automatic fail, sorry wrong answer, not going to work.
One of the primary rules after asking Jesus Christ into your heart is to repent from sin.
In the Hebrew repent is “nacham” which means to be sorry, but in the Greek it is “metanoeo,” which means to think differently or afterwards, i.e. reconsider. To be sorry for what you have done yet to reconsider your lifestyle and to start to think differently; to change one’s mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one’s past sins. In the Hebrew there was the sacrifice to fall back upon, but that was taken away when Christ hung upon the cross in our place. Now we must turn away from the sin for we have no sacrifice to fall back upon to cleanse us once again for Christ cannot return onto that cross again. (Hebrews 6:4-8)
If you live in a sin and are not made sick to your stomach when you slip and fall back into it then you have not experienced true repentance. You love the sin over your desire to be one of the winners, one of the ones that God will acknowledge as having passed His many tests. Any that says you can live within your sin and still be one with God has lied to you for they themselves have failed the test and do not wish to be within the loser circle allow. For misery truly does enjoy company.
This is why it is so important to read the instruction manual, the Bible. Know what is truly right and know what is truly bad. Too many think they can live their lives as if just saying the words: “I am a Christian” is enough, it is not. You must truly live the life of a Christian. Will we slip and fall time to time? Yes we will, but if we have a truly repentant heart then we will strife not to repeat that particular sin once again because it will sicken our hearts and our stomachs at having failed God. How do I know this? Because that is how I feel every time I let God down.
You cannot live in a sin and even attempt to legitimize it through the laws of man for only the laws of God truly apply within this test. If you attempt to legitimize it you are in actuality compounding that sin for by legitimizing it you are saying the sin is greater than God and nothing is greater than Him.
This is what needs to be taught. This is what needs to be understood. For as a “Christian” we are told to love all, but to truly give this love we must reprove, rebuke and exhort (2 Timothy 4:1-5). What I am doing here is exhorting. I am trying to explain in love that if you truly wish to live the eternal life which is the reward for passing the test, which is this present life, you must turn away from sin, not embrace it and say to yourself “God loves me as I am.” Yes God loves you, but he hates the sin, so how can He fully love you if you are tainted with something that repels Him. Love is a two way street, if you truly and completely love God as we are told we must do (Mark 12:30), then you will willingly turn from your sin. Will it be painful? Yes, for God is our parent and a parent chastises that which he loves (Proverb 13:24). Any that says otherwise has failed the test. Any not willing to hear, has failed the test. There will be millions of winners, but there will be billions of losers, for the road to everlasting life is a narrow and arduous road(Matthew 7:13-14), but it is a road that must be taken if you wish to pass the ultimate test.
