“Join us in our sin” is all that is being spoken by many


Re-post
These are the words of many. They do not understand how we cannot compromise our faith in God. They are not seeing that it is they that turned their backs upon God.
In my last two post I have spelled out where I stand in the current election. Most are blaming those like myself that are standing upon our faith in God over their desire to be seen as right.
I have pointed out that Donald Trump is a false teacher and is a world leader. I have pointed out that from the words Jesus Christ Himself (Mark 10:42-45). The true Head of the Church, that we are commanded by our faith in Him and His Father the Creator of the universe, to ONLY seek out servant leaders. All those that made it clear and even stated that they were “servant leaders” were resoundingly reject by most that profess they are “Christian.”
Just because someone claims to be “Christian” does not make them one. It is their actions. It is both faith and works. It is not faith alone nor is it works alone for faith without works is dead (James 2:14-26). This was a time when both faith and works were required by those that professed to be “Christian.” Faith that God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ could heal this shattered nation. A shattering that was caused by those that now deny that they even voted for the current president of this nation. I listen everywhere and can find none that openly admits they voted for the man now in the white house that profess to be “Christian,” yet I know many did. Through works they were to follow the teachings of the Bible they profess they are following and vote for a “servant leader.” Yet they did not follow the works required by the verses of James 2. This is how they should have been voting the moment they accepted Christ as their Savior, yet they have not.
They are now in the same group of people that are now trying to shame those like myself that will not turn from Jesus and His instructions. They had their chance to truly follow God and they say now you must follow us into damnation. Yes I said damnation.
Now the anger comes to the forefront. It is an anger that comes not from being right. It is an anger that comes from being afraid.
“Could he be right?” Somewhere deep inside their conscience comes the words.
My answer is this. I am not right, nor am I wrong. It is the Word of God that is right. I refuse to turn from it. I will not abandon God. I will not turn from my Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. It is their choice that they belief they know better than God.
God’s judgment for this nation will continue and it will be worse. What can change it?
REPENT. Turn away from the world and the worldly. Return to God. Return to Jesus Christ.
Is there time to get someone into the white house that is a “servant leader?” I honestly do not know. Personally I doubt it, but that would be me limiting God.
Do I see those that call themselves “Christian” turning from their lockstep behind the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party? No, which is truly sad for due to their free-will actions they are showing they no longer bear fruit for the Vine (John 15).
Understand this. Those that called themselves “Christian” and were warned not to listen to the lies and not to fall for the showmanship yet they still did disobeyed the direct words of Jesus Christ Himself from the books of Mark 10:44 and Matthew 20:27. They have disobeyed Christ Himself. They have sinned.
I am not perfect, nor will I ever be until I put on the eternal body, but I will not disobey Christ if I can help it. This I can help. This I have a say so in due to free-will. I pick Christ. If that means that this nation must loss the Supreme Court to those that will continue to no longer follow the constitution of this nation. If that means that this nation must suffer greatly under those left running. Understand this. It is not the fault of those that are choosing to stand with God. It is not the fault of those choosing to stand with Jesus Christ.
It is the fault of those that turned to Donald Trump as their savior when they at one time professed Jesus Christ to be their Savior. So they cannot ask those that choose Christ to join in with them in their sin and they must accept that those that choose God, choose righteousness over sin.
If you cannot accept this concept or understand what I just said and are calling me an idiot, are calling me ignorant, are calling me crazy, and are calling me a wacko. Then understand this. If those that are saying these words at this very moment or words that echo the meanings of these words. Understand that they do not know the Bible. Understand that they may not truly know salvation. Understand that they may stand before Jesus Christ one day and He will turn to them and say:
“I never knew you.”
Matthew 7:20 – Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
2 Timothy 4:1-5

Confessions of a screwed middle aged man: the shallow Christians part 2


Once again I run into those that see themselves as right with the Lord and yet shows signs they are nowhere near Him.
This time it had to do with the withdrawal of the last presidential candidate that could with honesty say they were “Christian.” For as of now there is none running that can say this and not be lying to your face. But since that is their favorite pass time they don’t even realize the truth themselves.
Anyway on with the real topic of this article. The Holy Spirit impressed upon the words I wrote down in an article I posted this last Wednesday: “America has spoken now judgment can begin.”
I shared this link on Glenn Beck sight due to his discords he was stating on his radio broadcast that day. Now I understand Mr. Beck is Mormon. I understand this group and I do not support them in their views. One thing many do not wish to accept is that Mormons, and this can be said of Catholicism, is that at their core is the actual Bible. This is how the lie can be perpetuated for at its core is the truth, which is then twisted by the addition of the man-made. This is how the Pharisees become blinded to the truth.
So as I said I re-posted this article listed above there. I received a response which was an attack by someone that called themselves “Christian.”
This was the first clue that they were shallow. Per Matthew 18:15 when someone shows an error in their belief and doctrine we are to PRIVATELY take them aside and discuss the issue. This is easily done in Facebook in a private message to the person.
Second clue. He words was an attack not a discussion. There was no philadelphia is his attitude. The true meaning of philadelphia is brotherly love. Now the “brotherly love” is not love for all humanity as it has been twisted by humanity to mean. It actually means love for your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ alone.
Third clue. He made an assumption I have not read the Bible correctly. Now do I know the Bible as I should? The answer to that is no I do not. I am human. I am imperfect. I am flawed. However, I do acknowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I strive to overcome my sin. I am repentant. I do pray and I do read the Bible and seek out the true meaning of the Bible through in-depth study with the use of the King James Version of the Bible. Strong’s Concordance, a dictionary and The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (unabridged). This insight into the word of God and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ has opened my heart into these teachings.
Forth clue. Attacking my statement that I would pray to for him as placing me on a “high biblical horse of yours and pretend to know Gods plan.” I know the word of God. As I stated above I do not know it perfectly, but I know enough to see the signs that God said to watch for. I see them. They are there for those that have eyes to see and an ear to hear. It is not me, it is God. It is Jesus.
The crux of this man’s argument was I calling Ted Cruz a new Christ. I was not nor would I ever do that. That is against the Bible. There is only one Christ and that is the man who went to the cross and then came back to life three days later. Also at the core was the roots of conservatism, which is traditional values and religious a.k.a. Christian values. The crux of my words in the fore mentioned article was there is no one that has these values left. Donald Trump is a false Teacher per 2 Peter 2 and I made this point with this man. He ignored it and would rather continue his attack toward me on the fact that all the signs about us is that we are near the return of Jesus Christ, by the way this was the fifth clue.
The Sixth clue. I will quote him here and allow you to see where he stands”
“‘I see the soon return of Christ.’ You know, I see it to, but so has every generation since it has been prophesied. Just remember, not even the angles in heaven know when. We can’t rule our lives over it. Nothing bad comes from the Lord, only good. We are commanded to pray for those who have power over us, and that’s all we can really do.”
The quote in this statement was him quoting me and this was his response to it. I will pick apart this response:
The Sixth clue part 2: “You know, I see it to, but so has every generation since it has been prophesied. Just remember, not even the angles in heaven know when. We can’t rule our lives over it.”
This shows he is not seeing the signs of our times. He is not seeing the apostasy. Yes we do not know the time it is to happen, but Jesus told us plainly that He would give us signs that His return is soon.
Matthew 24:33 – In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
These signs are everywhere as never before.
Now the BIGGEST clue number seven: “We can’t rule our lives over it.” This is absolutely OPPOSITE the teachings of the Bible.
Mark 12:29 – Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.
We are to place God and His Son at the core of our lives and allow Him to be the focus. Not ourselves, but God. We can only do this by LIVING the values taught within the Bible. This means we must let the belief that Jesus is soon to return be what guides our every action, which is not what this man says he personally follows. We must live our lives as if he is going to be knocking upon our door at any moment. Not days from now, not week, not years, not decades, not centuries, but NOW. Why?:
Matthew 24:42 – “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.”
The eighth clue. “Nothing bad comes from the Lord, only good. We are commanded to pray for those who have power over us, and that’s all we can really do.”
This is the mentality of those that teach God is only love. Yes He is love, but God is also righteous. God will judge and God will punish. This is made clear in the Bible. There is a pit of fire and not only Satan, but ALL that choose him over God will be in this pit. This is fact. This is the Bible.
To say we cannot take action in our faith and only pray says we are to do nothing. Well doing nothing is exactly what Satan wants people that call themselves “Christian” to do. It is this inaction that has allowed abortion the new name of human sacrifice to be protected by laws. It is this inaction that has allowed sin to run rampant and again become protected by man-made laws which has allowed the grievous sin of homosexuality to become legitimized by these laws. Here was my reply to this man’s last response I would reply too:
“Yes pray for them. But as the Body of Christ here on earth we are to reflect Christ and ALL his values in ALL that we do including voting. Your words scream of a shallow Christian… again I will pray for you…”
I will leave this here and allow you the reader to think upon what I have said today.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: You know there are just some days you wish you could see the plan God has set for you


As I write this I have encountered such a day. It would just be so cool to look over God’s shoulder as he is mapping out the way your life should go if you honor and trust His lead, which is what we are to do just for the record. When you are hit with a sudden and unexpected emotional punch in the gut. You are going along thinking you are doing fine and bam the wind is knocked out of you and your emotions go into a spiral.
Yes I got angry for about five minutes then I just started thinking and praying and I lost the anger. The anger would do me no good it would accomplish me nothing, so why be anger? Am I still depressed over the issues? Yes I am for I was becoming excited at the prospects that lay ahead of me and to once again having those goals, that I saw as something good for me and my family, kicked out from under me as they had been once before, but again not as depressed as happened the first time this occurred. Mainly due to the fact that I am placing my trust and faith in God as to how He wishes my life to go so it will honor Him.
Then I started to look at this at different perspectives. First and foremost was the prospective that God has something else in store for me or that His timing was not just write. Could it be He wanted to see if I would do what I am doing this very moment? Sharing it with you the reader. Giving you an insight into how God’s plans work under His time table and never under yours. For we are His servant not the other way around and any that tell you otherwise either do not know the Bible or are lying to you.
Yes it would have been a help for this event to occur for it would have allowed me to be more accessible to my family, but I will just have to try and figure out another method to do that better until God says I have accomplished my goals assigned by Him.
You see we all have tasks that we are assigned to do by God. For this life a test to see if we are worthy to go to the next level of existence. It will be approximately one hundred years now, then if we pass that we are told there will be a thousand years here on earth co-reigning with Jesus Christ, then there will be the eternal life beyond the Great White Throne Judgment. These latter two things are beyond our full comprehension to understand so God has saw fit not to tell us too much about them, but we are told they are real and will take place.
So in the mean time we must go through our maze of life, seek after the righteous path God desires for us to go down. Will we make the correct turn at the correct time? Not always, but that is the cost of free will. What is most important is to honor God, to trust God and believe all is possible through and with God. For once you forgotten this you have definitely turned down the wrong path.
