What? Herman Cain Says God Told Him To Run For President?

Official White House Portret of James A. Garfi...

Herman Cain who is running as fast as he can for president of the United States said that GOD told him to run for president…..Pat Robertson said the same thing “God told me…” but God doesn’t send people on wild goose chases. Robertson lost.

If a man is a minister he is to be preaching the gospel not running for president or having a beer with Herod or Caesar. If God called you to preach you need to preach, not try to run the world without God on your side. God is in the soul saving business, not electing public officials to high office while the world goes to hell.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that’s why he believes “God’s been in this from the beginning.” Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt. Like Moses, Cain says he told God, “You’ve got the wrong person. You can’t be talking about me.” Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those “conversations with God” to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.

Notice Cain said he FELT? Nowhere in the Bible are we to go by feelings when determining anything is real or not real. We walk by faith and faith without works is dead. Then Cain comparing himself to the great lawgiver Moses is incredibly absurd. Cain’s faith is in politics not in God. That faith is dead on arrival anywhere he sends it.

President James Garfield also was a minister, then abandoned it for politics, then was elected president of the United States. As we know he was shot after only six months in office and died soon after. Nothing more can be said of what God thought about he leaving the ministry for politics.

He took the man’s life. God is not in politics regardless of what some say. Read the Bible and see there the only politicians were the wicked, not the righteous.

If one is following Jesus his only goal is to win the lost to Christ.

Garfield was only POTUS for six months then died by an assassin. 

About Garfield….”While at Eclectic, he was most interested in the study of Greek and Latin,[12] and he was also engaged to teach. He developed a regular preaching circuit at neighboring churches, in some cases earning a gold dollar per service.[13] Garfield then enrolled at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, where he joined the Delta Upsilon fraternity[14] and graduated in 1856 as an outstanding student.[15]Garfield was quite impressed with the college President, Mark Hopkins, about whom he said, “The ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log with a student on the other.”[16] Garfield earned a reputation as a skilled debater and was made President of the Philogian Society and Editor of theWilliams Quarterly.[17]

After preaching briefly at Franklin Circle Christian Church (1857–58), Garfield gave up on that vocation and applied for a job as principal of a high school…”

Men who claim that God tells them to run for president are sadly ignorant of the Bible. God doesn’t call ministers to Caesar’s palace for $1000  a plate fund-raising dinners. He has no part in lobbyists whose interests do not include the lost and dying, the hurting and sick and those desperately in need of healing and salvation.

God calls us to win the lost to Christ. Cain is delusional as was Robertson who said GOD told him to go run for president. Robertson lost and who can believe God told him such a thing? God call us to win not lose. God give victory never defeat. And there is no victory in defeat.

Herman Cain said Monday he didn’t want to run for president, but God called him to join the race.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that’s why he believes “God’s been in this from the beginning.”

Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.

Like Moses, Cain says he told God, “You’ve got the wrong person. You can’t be talking about me.”

Cain is delusional. He feels stuff then acts on his feelings. Then blames God for his feelings. Feelings change like the weather. We must have the sure prophecy of God’s word and God’s word is not a feeling. It is Christ.

Cain comparing himself with Moses is ludicrous. He is not Moses. America is not Israel. And Americans are not slaves in Egypt land. God did not call Cain to lead anyone anywhere this is for certain. And we have the entire Bible to prove this.

Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those “conversations with God” to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.

Conversational with God? God only talks salvation from sin and healing and deliverance from sin. Sin is what God wants to remove from the world (not just from America)  not republicans or democrats from office.. But Cain is delusional in that he thinks God is calling him to some great mission as he called Moses. Moses already gave the law. It is a done deal!

Nowhere in the Bible does God tell anyone to run for public office. Jesus did not dine with Tiberius. He called Herod a fox, not his running mate.

Jesus did not run for public office. Jesus did not vote in elections. Jesus did not do anything that did not relate to the redemption of the lost. He healed the sick. He did not take away their benefits. None of the apostles were into politics. They preached and they prayed and they fasted to do one thing: WIN THE LOST!

As long as these religious politicians can push their delusions that God is walking with the rich and vain and lost in sin Caesars, and not with the hated persecuted Christians, they are winning victories for the devil not God..

It is wrong to pass the lie that God is involved in politics. God wants us saved NOT elected. And he wants us to get others saved not elected. The world needs Jesus and he seeks those who want to work in his kingdom, not work for the banks.

Saved At The Last Minute

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

Image via Wikipedia

(Mark 2:1-12) And  again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, ………..they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

One day God began to talk me about the man in the Bible who was let down through a roof. I knew the story. But God wanted me to see something in there I had not seen before.

In this story the man does not speak. The men who carried him do not speak. Jesus is the one who speaks to this man. He says to the man who does not speak or ask for forgiveness..”Son your sins are forgiven  you.”

Later I understood why he had made me see these passages as he did that day.

My dear brother spent his life drinking. He tried so many times to live for God. But he never was able to overcome the drunkenness. But prayer was made without ceasing for him. Not only by myself, but by other family members. And others. Of course he prayed himself to quit. But he drank and drank and drank. He finally gave up trying and just kept on drinking.

One day the sad call came that he had passed away. I was devastated and deeply troubled by this news. I knew he was drinking to his last day. I was told he had gotten drunk the night before he died of a massive heart attack. My brother died drunk? But God all the prayers for him. God you are faithful and true.  I had no peace on hearing this. He died suddenly I was told. One minute he is alive. Next minute suddenly gone. I wondered about all the prayers. I knew my brother loved God, but would not, did not, or could not stop drinking.

I knew God was a loving God who answers prayer. What happened that he is dead without being saved? I was about to find out something wonderful.

God said to me, that right before my brother passed from this life to the next, Jesus spoke to him the same words he spoke to the paralyzed man in the Bible..“Son your sins are forgiven you.  God said to me You were looking at his life, instead of at the life that was lived for him.” Then I understood why the Lord had given me this understanding of the man let down through the roof. Jesus saved my brother at the last-minute. Those are the words my brother heard. Prayers of faith had carried my brother through the roof of unbelief to the feet of Jesus.

So we may think someone is lost when they are not lost. I learned this. So who knows how many have heard Jesus say to them right before they died…“Son your sins are forgiven you.” When we bring, by prayer in faith, people to Jesus.

When we make a hole in the roof of unbelief to bring the person right to the feet of Jesus BY FAITH for healing. The Lord is not neglectful to hear and answer our prayers. He is faithful.

It says in that passage Jesus saw their faith. Let us have faith God can see. He honored that faith. Same when we pray for another to be saved. God may have to take their physical life to save their souls sometimes.

God saw our faith and saved my brother at the last-minute. Right before he died he heard what he needed to hear. Son your sins are forgiven you. He needed that more than he needed deliverance from the alcohol. So don’t give up praying for others. God will answer. Even if it is a last minute right before you die salvation.

The Bible is clear that drunkards will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But my brother did at the last minute have his sins forgiven so he could enter where he had wanted so long to enter. I know what God can do.

Be encouraged.

God’s Judgment On False Prophets

Carl Olof Rosenius preaching in Betlehemskyrka...

Jesus said …..He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)

I heard a prophet on a Christian television program say that some preachers are going to start dropping dead behind their pulpits.

If a preacher says God will make us prosper if we send them money, I do not believe it. However, if they say God is going to kill you if you don’t repent, then I believe it. Why? Because He did it all the time in the Bible.

God does not love anyone more than he loved Ananias and Sapphira. Yet he struck them dead. Peter rebuked them before all.

He did not offer them counselling. He did not offer them a chance. He did not instruct them to go recite one-hundred Hail Mary’s. He did not tell them “I understand. No one is perfect.” He offered no altar to kneel and repent at. No covering it up. Peter did not even forgive them himself. He said for lying to the Holy Ghost you must die.

Next scene: two corpses lying at Peter’s feet. One died, then the other. Their dead bodies carried out, and buried, and the church rolled on.

We can just imagine how filled with fear all the church was after seeing these two now alive, now dead. Struck dead before them all. It would appear that those of Peter’s congregation did not try the same thing Ananias and Sapphira tried.

Back to the pulpit deaths…of course we know a pulpit means more than the standard ones we see in churches. Any preacher out there who is preaching a false gospel is in danger of being among those who drop dead under the judgment of God.

You know that God hasn’t changed one iota about how he sees sin. He still hates it and it will still be punished. Nothing has changed.

Why do some ministers who stand behind a pulpit preaching not live as God commands them to live? Simple answer: they don’t want to. How do we know this is true? Because God is good, and he is just, and he is merciful. He will never, ever, ever command us to do what we cannot do THROUGH Christ.

It is possible to live for Jesus.

And Paul the apostle said we can do all things through Christ. If God told you to do it, then you can do it through him who loved us and bought us with his blood. Someone said God will not bring you to it, if he does not bring you through it.

God commands all men everywhere to repent. But man tells God go away. Not today God I’m busy having fun. I am satisfying my flesh so take a hike. Go away  God go away.

Jesus already said that few will find the way to eternal life. Many will go to hell. Horrible! Oh God does it have to be that many will be lost forever suffering the eternal flames of hell?

Some say there is no hell.

Do they really think the suffering we see today in the world is not allowed by God? God is Sovereign. He is either doing his will, or permitting what is not his will. How he does this is not to be understood. He warns the world repent repent repent or perish.

But as sinners from times of old the world tells God GO AWAY.

However God cannot go away. He is omnipresent and fills all in all.

When one sees the suffering in the world today, it is difficult to bear it. But it is God who allows it. If one does not obey he suffers.

Better to repent today then find out later that to die without Christ is to go to that place where the worm dies not and the fire is not quenched. Jesus said that not me.

Quit Judging Others

SAN DIEGO (Dec. 19, 2007) U.S. Naval Academy m...

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (John 13:34)

Some members of a church who considered themselves saved decided to go judging one day.

Yes they attended church regularly and paid tithes. They sang in the choir and praised the Lord in the pews.

It so happened they had a food bank at their church. One day they saw a new member taking some food for her family. She was putting the food in some bags she had brought from home.

The bags she filled up with food were originally from these expensive stores where designer clothes and shoes were sold. Among other things. Yes names of stores where only the wealthy shopped were on these bags as clear as could be.

They began to whisper behind her back accusing her of having no shame and plenty of nerve to take food after shopping at such expensive stores.

But the truth was the young mother had gotten the bags from the local thrift store. It happened that the thrift stores used the same bags the rich brought in when they donated their unwanted items to bag the used articles bought by the woman.

In my opinion only ignorant and completely stupid people judge others by outward appearance. To judge another without knowing the facts is a dangerous sign of insanity. Actually it is undeniable proof that judges and whisperers are insanely hypocritical..

It is undeniable proof their brain doesn’t function correctly.

It takes God’s love in the heart to keep the mind clean and the mouth shut.

Judging others by one’s own thinking is only digging a pit for oneself: a pit the Bible declares; that whoever digs that pit for another will fall into it himself.

Be wise and do not judge others. Love them instead.

Think!

1 John 5:7 proved a forgery

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” is 1 John 5:7 the forgery.

(Jewish math genius shown in pic)

In a New Testament I use, In the Language of the people Charles Williams added a note V 7 not in best Mss. The truth is becoming known about the forgeries in the Bible thanks to the internet and honest scholars.

I always color the scriptures in red on my blogs. But not so with this forgery. If you look at it; how is it possible for THREE to be ONE?  God is one the Bible is clear about this. Three is three it will stay three because three is not one. It is in truth three (3) ONES.

Deuteronomy 6:4 is the holy and sacred, eternal, immutable, will never pass away, word God PERSONALLY gave to Israel. Not to so-called church fathers.

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Is one three? Is 3 1? No it cannot be. 1 is 1 is 1 is 1 is 1 and cannot be anything but what God made it to be: ONE. This is a law of math. God made everything that exists to be a one.

But a trinitarian ( I love the Trinitarians as I love the Oneness and all people) will swear that God is three persons in One God. Following that so called math then God is four. Because firstly there is one God. Now if you say that three (3) persons are in this one God, then the number four appears from the count. Three persons in one God is exactly that: 3 persons in 1 God so that adds up to four.

One day I was on my way home and the Lord begin to talk to me about math. (My daughter has a Bachelor of Science  in math not me) But I didn’t go to school to learn this.

It is about The number ONE. I read a book by a mathematician who said that to mathematicians the number two is a strange number.

He did not say why but I figured it out for myself on my way home that day.

There is no number two (2) it does not exist.  Two is simply two ones. Three is THREE Ones. Four is FOUR ones five is five ones..and so forth. Ten is ten ones.  One million is one million ones. You begin with ONE then to get to two you must add another ONE. Everything comes in a one just like our Creator is ONE.

I am one. The chair I am sitting on is one. My computer is one. The flat screen television in front of me is one. The desk on which my computer sits on is one. The keyboard I am typing on is one. My car is one. I can look the world over and will not find or see a two or a three or four. I will only see one of everything. If there are more of ONE thing it is because another ONE has been added to the ONE.

God is ONE. I am one you are one. The person next to you is one. One one one and we cannot get away from ONE (1)

If you count from 1-10 you will count 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10

But notice that as you count all you are doing is adding another ONE to the first one. Then to get to number three you must add 2 more ONES to the first one. To get number four (0nes)you must now add THREE more ones to  make four (ones) and so on. It is all about adding ones together. But a million ones will never make a million per se. It is in truth a million ONES.

And one cannot insert three ones into one and call it one. This is absurd. It is not a mystery why it cannot be done: it is as clear as it could be. In imagination it would then be four as I said earlier for three to be in one which would really then add up to four (4)

1 is 1. It is not two it is not three it is not four it is not five and it is not anything but what it is: a ONE (1) God is NOT three IN one. He is ONE.

When you add to 1 another 1 you come up with TWO ONES. However the 2 ones are now called TWO. Why? Because that is what we call two ones. We just call them TWO.

You will not get away from ONE. This is the number God made everything to be: ONE.

This is what God talked to me about that day on my way home. I had never thought of it or realized it as he made me see it. There is no such thing as THREE there are only THREE ONES that add up to THREE.

Everything comes in a ONE and God created us in his image and after his likeness. Each ONE of us is ONE person. If I add another person to me than I am not two persons. I must have another person standing next to me. Then another person can look at us and say I and my friend are two persons.

Siamese twins are two persons in one body. God cannot be compared to this. A sheep born with two heads is not two sheep but a sheep with two heads. One head extra. God cannot be compared to this either. In fact nothing can be compared to God.

The two different persons (say your friend) and you add up to two persons. Separate and distinct from each other.

But Trinitarians try to make God three when three cannot be one. He is not three since there is no such thing as a three. Three is simply three ones added to each other to make three.

You cannot take that and apply it to Deuteronomy 6:4

God is not wearing three masks. And the word person comes from the Greek word persona which simply means mask. God does not wear three masks to reveal himself.

He revealed himself to us in His Son. He is also not two. He is ONE.

Three cannot be one it is mathematically impossible.

God cannot be three it is scripturally impossible.

I understand the so called church fathers came up with a trinity because they saw; for example: where Peter said in 1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

..and they understood this as what? According to Trinitarians who is Peter calling blessed here? God or the Father? Peter seems not to be blessing the Lord Jesus Christ at all. But he says here God AND the Father  so is this two? Or is it two of three in the one? Peter used the determiner his  as we can see here when he identified whose mercy it was he referred to…. according to his abundant mercy. Not their abundant mercy but Peter said HIS abundant mercy. Peter here is speaking of ONE.

For more evidence see Acts 2 where he explains exactly who Jesus is.

Whose abundant mercy is Peter speaking of? God’s abundant mercy or the Father’s abundant mercy?Which is it? It is so now we have the mercy of three. Or is it two since trinitarians claim that the first person is God and the first person is the Father so now we have two first persons and no third because Jesus is the alleged second person.

Jesus called himself the Almighty in Revelation of Jesus Christ 1:8 and he called himself the Alpha and Omega and never bowed to be second to anyone or anything. Every knee will bow to Jesus name . Of things in heaven and of things in earth and beneath the earth.

If there is a first person and a third person I submit to you the scripture says they will bow to the name of Jesus.

Now in this passage it appears that Peter said here that the Lord Jesus Christ has TWO above him. One is God and the other is the Father. So now there is here 1. God and 2. the Father and 3. the Lord Jesus Christ. However God in this passage is one and the Father is one. Jesus is one. So far it is three. However the first two are the same or are they? Who is God the first person or is the first person the Father?

And the Lord Jesus Christ is the third person or the second person? Because the trinity is pagan it can be easily dismantled to be shown for what it is: a heresy passed off as truth.

The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

To The Commenters Who Approve of Public Nudity

Be advised that I am done with this debate over nudity. Nothing more will be said on the sin of public nudity here. If one wants a response on nudity it will not be published here. Any other questions are fine.
The scripture is clear that we are to wear clothes because sin is now in the world. I suspect many who keep making comments asking this or that did not read my blog where everything is explained and supported by the   holy scriptures.

I have posted proof from the Bible.

It is clear that those who believe that public nudity is harmless that nudity is approved by God cannot see what the Bible says about it.

Or they refuse to see.

If someone wants to live in a nudist colony that is their choice. I for one do not agree with it because the Bible tells us to wear clothes.

All comments on the subject of public nudity will be disposed of as trash or spam since I have here said I am done with debating this.

I’m also tired of seeing my Media Gallery filled with pics of nudes: things I cannot use in my blogs.

Thank God For Prophecy

Christ Driving the Moneychangers from the Temp...

A few years ago God said to me about a close relative: ——will die young if he doesn’t repent. I immediately began to pray and beseech God not to let death happen to this much loved person. I prayed earnestly for God to save this person.

Then not speaking words as he did when he warned of this person’s future if repentance didn’t happen, he talked to my heart.

He told me and made me know exactly what he would do concerning this person. God made me know that he was going to bring —– down way down. In other words strip him and humble him. Then he told my heart he would not do well, but that he would heal him and save him.

I was so relieved and so thankful to hear this. I had peace that God would answer the prayer to save this person I had been praying for for years.

Then a few years passed and I began to hear of the misfortune befalling this person. I was not dismayed. I already knew all that would happen to this person and the outcome. I told this  person what God told me. I said this is what God said; you will die young if you do not repent. No repentance came then.

But then came a long string of bad happenings. One after the other. Stressful situations and heavy financial losses attacking this person’s life. Almost to the point of insanity came the problems for this person.

Then one day tears of genuine repentance as he surrendered his life to Jesus.

Now it is Bible study and witnessing for the Lord in this person’s life. He talks about Jesus all the time. God made the great change that was needed. He did a great work of redemption as he said he would.

I thank God for prophecy. Prophecy is so needed. It brings peace to know the end from the beginning. And for God who cares if we live or die.

“….that calls those things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17)

God’s Plan For Us

Joseph interpreting the dreams of the baker an...

Image via Wikipedia

The story of Joseph in Genesis reveals God’s plan for us that there is no way we can miss it if we read this story from beginning to end. God has the same plan for everyone: repent and believe the gospel and take it to the lost. Heal the sick and  cast out devils. Be sure you will suffer along the way.

Joseph doesn’t try to be like anyone, nor does he compare himself to anyone who may have died for the faith, or one who prays more hours a day than he did. Nowhere does it say he asked God to show him his plan for his life. Nor did Joseph aspire to be a politician so he could save his nation from communism. He did not run off to attend a seminary to earn degrees so he could be called reverend.

Not that there is anything wrong with that. But nowhere in the Bible does a call have to possess a degree.

Joseph doesn’t try to do anything noteworthy; he simply lives his life the best he can and God does all the rest. He was just a normal 17 year old boy then God gave him a dream. He told of the dream and all his problems began. Not glory and honor and riches began, his sufferings began! Satan attacked him.

Joseph did not strive for greatness or fame. He did not wonder what he should do for God! He did not pray and fast to find the will of God for his life. He did not attend Bible classes to find out what God wanted him to do. 

He wasn’t driven by a purpose. He didn’t read the latest book by a doctor of divinity preacher to find out what were his gifts or talents. He didn’t chase God. He simply lived his life. He had no idea he would be a slave. He did not know he would spend years languishing in a prison accused of a crime he did not commit.

 He suffered and this was caused by all the sins of the others he came into contact with: after he told them of his dream. (Don’t tell people your dreams; they might do all they can to kill you or sell you into slavery)

But who was Joseph? He was a young man who trusted in God. This is who he was! This describes Joseph more than anything.

[Whoever thinks that others sins do not affect others needs to read this story]

Joseph endured being betrayed by his brothers. And through it all using all what was done to him God brought him to the exact place he wanted him to be which was to “save many people alive.”

God uses what we do and what others do good or bad to glorify himself if we trust in him. Joseph did not plan his life he simply lived a day to day existence and God used it for his glory! If we trust God no matter what may come against us God will bring us to where he can use us. No plan or purpose driven plan is needed.

Our work for God is done in the mundane toil of life, it is when we are building whatever it is we build, or preparing a meal or going to work for eight hours that God is glorified. Or tending the sheep. Even when we sleep God is working.
People who want Bibles with their names on them, ministries called by their name, or libraries and universities built in their honor are doing it for themselves…. not for God. God has no need of such things.

I’ve heard of Charles Spurgeon the so called prince of preachers (as if he is greater than the apostles who wrote the New Testament. And died for their faith) and I have heard of all these so called great Christians. Not even Peter who preached the first salvation message looked for glory and honor as do so many who profess Christ. Or the greatest theologian Paul whose knowledge of God came through revelation not from sitting at the feet of Gamaliel.

TBN had (I don’t know if they still do) a program called Christian Celebrity Showcase. Famous people who claim to be Christians appear to tell of their great worldly success. On this show they earnestly and fervently praise and worship the gods of wood and stone. To them Egypt is the place to be. Thank you Pharaoh for all you have done for me is basically their message.

TBN sends the message that going to, living in, or working in Hollywood means one has arrived. That one is successful.

God is not impressed with the world and name-droppers and social climbers have no place in the body of Christ.

God looks to the one who humbles himself. God wants repentance and God wants us to love one another. Not sit there dressed like Ahab and Jezebel in royal purple gushing and giving thanks to Babylon for how great and successful and rich you are.

Sinners can do that.

God’s plan is the same for all: repent and take the gospel to the lost. Not by taking up offerings to buy yourself things you don’t need. But heal the sick and deliver those in bondage.

God is in the soul-saving business not the business of making one rich and successful. Caesar does that for his citizens if they follow his lead.

Joseph trusted God as he lived his life. Was this God’s plan for him? It was God using what happened to Joseph that revealed his plan in the end to save many people alive. Joseph lived his life and God used it. Joseph didn’t chase God nor was he driven by purpose; he just lived his life

Live your life and trust in God and He will use you for his glory.

Another Miracle From God

Detail from "Christ the Light of the Worl...

Image via Wikipedia

God told me one day that he was going to turn my son around. I write down every prophecy God gives me. I understood this to mean he was going to turn his life around.

A few weeks later my son called me to tell me how God miraculously intervened and saved him from death or serious injury.

Driving the many miles from his job back to his home late one night; suddenly up the highway he saw a horrible sight.

A semi-truck at a high rate of speed jackknifing out of control was headed right at him. He said he remembered saying This is the end of the road. He thought his life was about to end. There was no way out for him.

The truck was about to hit him head-on when suddenly for no apparent reason his vehicle turned completely around facing away from the truck. The truck hit him on the other side of his  vehicle demolishing it. He somehow crawled out without a scratch.

I had told him on the phone without knowing what exactly happened on the highway, that God had spoke to me about him about a month before saying he was going to turn him around. That is when he told me what happened; he said that is exactly what God did on the highway, he turned him around just in time.

God turned him around and the truck missed hitting him head-on.

God is a miracle working God and I thank him for the things he has done for me and for others.

I Was Naked And You Clothed Me

Because of my blogs showing from the Bible that God requires us to wear clothes after the fall of the human race in Eden, I am being accused by those who think that public nudism is the will of God of being a false prophet. And of taking scriptures out of context.

Here in this passage the LORD Himself tells how clothing the naked is his will for us. He also warns of what happened to those who do not clothe the naked. He also promises reward to those who feed the hungry, visit those in prison, and take the stranger in.We are to clothe the spiritually naked as well as the physically naked.

Jesus did not here mean that the only food and clothing we give to those in need be spiritual. It is the spiritual that affects the natural man.If he is naked within he is naked without. We are to do this literally.

God wants us to wear clothing in spite of what some may believe.

What Then?

When the great factory-plants of our cities
Have turned-out their last finished works,
When our merchants have sold their last products,
And sent home the last tired clerk;
When our banks have transacted their business,
And paid out the last dividend;
When the Judge of the Earth calls a reckoning,
And asks for a balance –WHAT THEN?

When the Church choir has sung its last anthem,
And the preacher has made his last prayer;
When the people have heard their last sermon,
And the sound has died out on the air;
When the Bible lies closed on the pulpit,
And the pews are all empty of men,
When each one stands facing his record,
And the Great Book is opened – WHAT THEN?

When the actors have played their last drama.
And the mimic has made his last fun,
When the film has flashed its last picture,
And the billboard displayed its last run;
When the crowds seeking pleasure have vanished,
And gone out in the darkness again,
When the trumpet of ages is sounded,
And we all stand before Him – WHAT THEN?

When the bugle-call sinks into silence,
And the long marching columns stand still;
When the captain repeats his last orders,
And they’ve captured the last fort and hill;
When the flag has been hauled from the mast-head,
And peace seems to reign among men,
When those who rejected the Saviour
Are asked for a reason – WHAT THEN?

Jesus Healing of Demoniac Resulted in Delivered Man Wearing Clothes!

Job-Blake

Image via Wikipedia

Mark 5:2As Jesus stepped out of the boat, a man came out of the tombs and met him. The man was controlled by an evil spirit 3and lived among the tombs. No one could restrain him any longer, not even with a chain. 4He had often been chained hand and foot. However, he snapped the chains off his hands and broke the chains from his feet. No one could control him. 5Night and day he was among the tombs and on the mountainsides screaming and cutting himself with stones.

[As this man abused himself his soul suffered as well as his mind and body. He referred to himself as Legion. He said he was many. Schizophrenic on a massive scale. Confused and frightened and alone. Satan had a stronghold in his life thus controlling his behavior. He was a tormented human being. I do not believe Satan walked up to this man one day to ask him for control of his life. Possibly he deceitfully worked on him little by little until the man was possessed. With possession came the cutting, the screaming, the nudity, the chains, the living in isolation away from other people.]

6The man saw Jesus at a distance. So he ran to Jesus, bowed down in front of him, 7and shouted, “Why are you bothering me now, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me.” 8He shouted this because Jesus said, “You evil spirit, come out of the man.”

[The man wanted to be free from his naked tormenting prison of shame and isolation. He lived away from the populace.}

 9Jesus asked him, “What is your name?

He told Jesus, “My name is Legion [Six Thousand], because there are many of us.” 10He begged Jesus not to send them out of the territory.

[It appears the man and the devils were entwined were one. The man’s tongue was used by the demons to beg Jesus not to cast them out. Where could they live and behave insanely if they did not have a body?].

11A large herd of pigs was feeding on a mountainside nearby. 12The demons begged him, “Send us into the pigs! Let us enter them!

13   Jesus let them do this. The evil spirits came out of the man and went into the pigs. The herd of about two thousand pigs rushed down the cliff into the sea and drowned.

[The pigs ran in suicidal torment to die rather than live as demons.]

14Those who took care of the pigs ran away. In the city and countryside they reported everything that had happened. So the people came to see what had happened. 15They came to Jesus and saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons. The man was sitting there dressed and in his right mind. The people were frightened. 16Those who saw this told what had happened to the demon-possessed man and the pigs. (Emphasis mine)

[There is no getting around it that when the demons were cast out of this tormented man by the Lord the man quieted down and was clothed; with his mind thinking intelligently.]

The man wanted to go with Jesus but the Lord told him to go tell what the Lord had done for him. This would include restoring his mind which mind decided to wear clothes.

Nudity, King David, Bathsheba and God’s Judgment

Abishag at the bed of David, with Bathsheba, S...

Image via Wikipedia

2One evening David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the king’s house, when from there he saw a woman bathing; and she was very lovely to behold. (2 Samuel 11:20

David looked on a naked body. He then committed adultery. And murder.

Then he lied about it.

Then he learned the woman was pregnant. He lied about that.

Then he had the woman’s husband killed.

Then he lied about that.

His sin began when he looked at the naked body of the woman bathing herself.

Now that Uriah is murdered by David, he marries Bathsheba.

God lets all this happen…then

He sends Nathan the prophet who tells David a story. David is so blind to his evil of adultery and murder that he swears the man will be killed who done such a thing as Nathan reports.

Nathan tells him he is the man. Yes David GOD forgives you and has put away your sin. However the sword will never depart from your house.

Israel  is still at war today. An innocent child dies because God struck him with sickness. Regardless of David’s prayers and fasting the child dies. David had killed Uriah. Now God kills David and Bathsheba’s child.

Yes it all started when Bathsheba exposed her nudity to David. I am sure Bathsheba knew David walked where he walked when he saw her that day. How could she not know that the king’s palace was right next door?

So from this one look at a naked body here is what happened:

1. Lust

2. Adultery

3. Covetousness and No concern for Uriah

4. Adultery and Lies

5. Murder and Lies

6. An innocent child dies

7. The sword will never depart from the house of David.

No doubt that IF Bathsheba had not bathed in full view of David none of these sins would have been committed.

God Against Public Nudity

Prophet Ezekiel, Russian icon from first quart...

Image via Wikipedia

The Hebrew prophet Isaiah “walked naked and barefoot for three years as a sign … against Egypt and Cush.” The Lord Himself directly commanded Isaiah to do this to represent the utter shame these people would experience.

Nakedness was used here as warning of judgment.

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 3:18

Here God makes it clear that we need to be covered. Dare anyone say that the Lord approves that these people he addressed here go naked? The fall in Eden caused God to make them clothes to wear..

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine. (Ezekiel 16:8)

Here God covered nakedness. He did this in Eden after they sinned against him. He made covering for them. Dare anyone say that the Lord in this passage approves of women exposing their bodies thus tempting men to sin?Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? (Isaiah 58:7)

God here tells Israel to care for others which would include making sure they have clothes to wear.

And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. (Genesis 9:22-27)

A curse is placed upon Canaan the son of Ham for looking at his father’s nakedness.

And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; (Ezekiel 18:7)

God here pronounces blessings on those who cover the naked.

 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.(Isaiah 47:1-3)

I understand this last verse to be God warning women to cover themselves or he will come to them, BUT not as a man will he come. He will come with judgment on her refusal to cover herself. He tells them to go ahead and expose themselves but when he comes to them it will be to punish. God equates nakedness with shame. Once the nakedness is uncovered then her shame shall be seen.

Nudity and Common Sense

Adam and Eve are being sent out of the garden ...

Image via Wikipedia

Thousands of people stand in St Peter’s Square anxiously waiting for the pope to give his blessing to all the Catholics.

Soon amidst pomp and pageantry he emerges. Naked as the day he was born he makes his appearance. He lifts his hands and does his blessing gesture. The crowd is silent. They obviously wonder why he has no clothes on. One little boy says to his daddy, “Look papa he has no clothes on!”

He speaks to the crowd. “Like Isaiah I am naked. Yes because of Isaiah the Hebrew prophet walking naked so do I walk naked today. He is no better than I. If he can go naked in public so can I.” The cardinals and bishops decide that they too must strip off all their clothes. “God made me this way” they shout. Soon they all stand before the crowd naked. Soon smell of rectums fill the place. Many had gone to the toilet and needed to defecate. But it is natural for the rectum to smell like feces after one defecated. It is natural so if others can smell the foul odor they need to realize that this is how God made them and of course it is beautiful. This is how God made them.

Meanwhile at Westminster Abby the wedding ceremony between William and Kate is about to begin. Kate is escorted down the aisle by her father. But as they begin their trip they notice that the minister that will perform the ceremony is naked.

He had read in the Bible that Adam and Eve were created naked so he decides that this is how he must appear. Kate and William will understand that nudity is natural and beautiful. If they do not think so it is because they are insane. How dare they go against God’s will for me.

For some strange reason he now thinks that the sin in the garden of Eden did not affect him. He is naked as he performs the wedding ceremony. No one in the church is naked only him. Why? Because he is the only one who realizes that nudity is natural and lovely. Naked bodies are to behold, he argues, not hide under clothes. Away with cotton. Away with silk and velvet God made me naked and naked I shall go.

William and Kate do no agree.

William and Kate at the altar  are shocked and horrified at this spectacle. But the naked minister reaches for his Bible to show them that Isaiah walked naked and so can he. He has no idea that God commanded his prophet do walk naked for a purpose concerning the message God had to give to a sinful people Israel. He clipped out a few scriptures out of their context and applied it to himself. The reason? Complete Bible ignorance on his part.

Far away across the sea in America the cities are filled with naked people. Men women and children stark naked going about their daily lives. Except for a few who see nakedness in public as missing a few sandwiches to go on a picnic. They understand that sin’s entrance into the world caused God to make clothes for his creatures. They wear clothes as man has been doing since he was kicked out of Eden by God.

The police are called by a citizen who is as the Bible says “clothed and in his right mind” to complain of the smell of sweat and feces. Not to mention the absolute disgust of those forced to look on strange naked bodies. They go home and lock their doors fearing the world has gone insane.

Obviously it has.

Shopping for groceries the young bride is forced to look at naked clerks as they check out her groceries. She is forced to walk beside a naked man who carries her groceries to her car. He asks her for a date. She declines.

In a court of law the criminal is brought in shackled and chained. But he is naked. The judge is naked. The attorneys are naked. All twelve jurors are naked.

A jealous husband is walking with his pretty young wife down the street. Suddenly she stops to remove her clothing. She is stark naked. She explains to him that nakedness is how God created her. She wants to be as God made her. They run into friends and stop to chat. The husband does not like the way his friend is looking at his naked wife. But she argues that nakedness is natural and beautiful. There is nothing wrong with it. His friend is only looking at her body to admire it. There is no danger of lust entering the picture. After all this is how God made her.

Soon word is out that all convicts in all prisons are now allowed to serve their time in prison without a stitch of clothing on.

Not all people agree that nakedness is the will of God. So they remain clothed. Most do not want to be nude in a world of sin and evil.

The five-year old girl is babysit by her naked uncle. The uncle explains to the parents that it is natural and beautiful to be naked. And as the parents leave he assures them that it is alright for the five-year old to sit on his naked lap while he reads her a story. After all he is a holy man of God. He is not subject to the law of sin that the apostle Paul said is in our members. He says it is natural and beautiful for him to be naked as he babysits his niece. After all this is how God made him. He removes the child’s clothes also so she can be as God made her also. Naked.

The teen girls are told by their male teacher that it is natural and beautiful for him to stand before them naked as a jay-bird as he teaches. He tells them he is sure their parents will understand that just because his genitalia is exposed to the girls means nothing. His penis is beautiful and to be seen and admired by his teen girl students.

He excuses himself to go to the restroom to defecate. He uses toilet paper to wipe his beautiful natural rectum. He understands that God created him naked. And God said that it was good. If he smells he smells what can he say? It is how God made him.  He dismisses the notion that sin is in the world. He discards any thought that perhaps his nakedness is not what God wills for him.

What is wrong with this picture?

NOTE: Jesus was stripped and beaten. Neither of these two things was done with his approval. He allowed it. The Bible says that he the sinless Lamb became sin for us. The Lord wore a robe woven without seam. This tells something about clothes. He is our great example.

“He who knew no sin became sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21).”

The Blood of Jesus the Remedy for Evolution

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Image via Wikipedia

Evolution happens and it is only the blood of Jesus Christ that can stop its evil.

Evolution is not the will of God. It is the result of man’s rebellion against all that is good which is God.

Man sins man evolves without God. If God was in evolution then Darwin would not have abandoned his faith to believe it is all there is.

But there rose a Lamb in Jerusalem. The blood sacrifice needed for sin.

Why? Because God said so.

 

Dr Hotiarre Defends Evolution

Entrance to Evolving Planets

Image via Wikipedia

You may speak Dr Hotiarre:

My fellow evolving creatures of planet earth; may I begin by reminding my audience that man is an evolving thing.

He is an animal. An evolving entity. In short man is a beast!

Yes at one time in a long ago age he crawled on his hands and knees searching for food. He killed and killed and killed to survive. He salivated and sweat.  He graduated to the grunt. He smelled and stunk with no shame.

He never smiled or laughed. When man was an animal he looked like an animal.

But as he evolved he suddenly because of the time-god began to own a conscience that convicted him of his murders. What could this be? How could man evolve morals? He murdered than he begins to feel conscience? How could this be?

Humans are killers. Why? because we are animals.

This is basically what we do today: we kill to survive.

I think Brother Happy mentioned that the Bible says that if we hate our brother we are a murderer.

How to murder someone is not just using the hands. Not just hands to use a gun or a knife. Murder with words. Slander them and insult them. Insult them every chance you get. And condemn them with no mercy.

Elevate yourself to a place high above them. Use every language you know to speak evil of the one you wish to kill. I guarantee it that words kill.

Brother Happy spoke of ignorance; of how we kill using words as our weapon of choice. Vicious words murderous words hurting and cutting words.

If a child hears he is stupid and worthless he is being murdered by the ignorant creature that is hurling the words at him. If an adult hears or reads evil of himself he begins to die just as God said he would.

Death is the wages of sin. Death to the murderer and death to his victim.

Yes we are killers. We are murderers. We are liars and thieves and robbers.

Hmm..according to Brother Happy every time I slander a person I use words to wound mutilate to kill. Words that can be used as a lethal weapon to utterly destroy.

Some evolve quicker and better than others as we can deduct by simple observation.

Have you ever noticed that some people look like monkeys? Of course you have?  He deserves to die. He is not fully evolved according to Darwin.

Have you ever seen a man who is arrested and charged with murder? Why? because he attacked for no reason a fellow human being. Inn his anger of beastly depravity he viciously killed him. He felt no remorse. Why? because he is a beast. A lying murdering robbing beast.

This a picture of man without God.

Man is a beast an animal who loves to do evil. He loves to curse and use profanity. He loves to indulge himself in slander and gossip of those he hates and judges. He sits and slanders the absent victim.

Man is a murderer and a thief. The same things Jesus said of Satan that he is a murderer and a thief.

Do I really commit theft when I slander another? Do I really rob them of their right to be heard? Of their right to defend themselves? If they are not present to hear me slander them than yes I am robbing them of their right to defend their reputation.

If I use vicious words to attack them with words stabbed into their back then into their heart.. I am a murderer.

So yes man is a murderer. He is a thief. He is an animal. A beast.

What but a beast would kill?

What but a beast would murder lie and run to hide?

Yes evolution proves that man evolved from a beast into a man.

But Brother Happy says the opposite: he maintains that man evolved into a beast after he sinned against his Creator.

Darwin got it backwards.

God created a man in his image and Satan marred that man and called it evolution.

God calls it sin.

How do we return to Eden. Through Christ.

Focus Adjustment to the Blood of Jesus Christ

The Last Supper of Jesus Christ

Image via Wikipedia

BUT it is the blood of Jesus that is needed.

Do we even hear about the blood anymore? Where? Not on Christian television which I don’t really pay attention to anymore because it is focused on money and celebrities and ratings.

It is sad to hear TBN introduce someone naming all their so-called successes in life. Life coaches and best-selling authors. They are big celebrities with their introductions. Such as “Tonight we are so blessed and privileged to have with us writer and life coach , actor, doctor, lawyer, mayor, governor, …and minister.”

Minister comes last in the list. Yes that is right GOD comes last! Do they really think this is okay with God? I think not. Go read about what he said about this in the Bible. He is first and last he will stay first and last..no matter what.

They go on naming off all their worldly accomplishments such as their degrees. They mention their success as an actor who appeared on such and such a show. They applaud their endeavors in Hollywood. It is all about the person. Then at the very end of all the big introduction naming all their worldly successes they add that he is also….a pastor. As if God is something thrown in just because they want to..

Of course they give God all the glory for making them so successful for all their education their money their riches their popularity their wonderful life and so on.

Personally..I don’t need a pastor who writes best-selling books. Or one who used to star in the old comedy sitcom. Or the one who started out on Broadway then decided to be a pastor. And who now pastors a church with 1000000000 members. I need a pastor who prays and pleads the blood of Jesus Christ. I remember them well.

Do they even talk about the blood of Jesus Christ?

No it is all about celebrity and Hollywood and money and success.

If it were all about that there would be no need for Jesus Christ. The world does fine without him as we can see. There are rich blasphemers. What does this tell us?

The world and the church are not one and the  same. Yet this is what TBN and other so-called religious programs try to make it be.

I personally believe this is why the world is in the horrible condition it is in. Because it is not longer the blood of Jesus they talk about but themselves and their great accomplishments.

Does money and celebrity have anything to do with salvation? No.

So and so became rich and is an atheist. So and so Christian became rich and shouts praise to God for making them rich.

Here is their crazy message:

Atheists can get rich denying God. But if one who believes in God gets rich it is because God did it.

What is wrong with this picture?

A painting by Canaletto of Vienna during the f...

Image via Wikipedia

Dr Hotiarre hurries to the airport to catch his flight to Vienna. It so happened that the debate host drove him there. Smiling he says to him; I am shocked and horrified that anyone as ignorant as Brother Happy was allowed to engage me in the debate. I surely thought my opponent would hold at least one degree. Brother Happy is another example of the decline of this nation and the world. It almost seems that he is evolving in the opposite direction that I am.

To believe something for no apparent reason is a sign and symptom of insanity. And this is what Brother Happy does. I must have evidence. Scientific evidence leaves no room for doubt. I remember when I was a young student of higher learning in Austria. I was impressed with all the evidence found proving men were made from monkeys. Yes the truth of the ages is I was once a monkey.

Am I embarrassed that my ancestors were smelly apes? Of course not. I am quite pleased with the evolution of the mind; especially my mind. I am one of the favored. For reasons known to evolution I evolved into an intelligent human able to help evolution along by attending all the schools I can to educate myself to the point where I can understand more the world I appeared in.

Whereas Brother Happy evolved only into a human body; his mind is still primitive and grossly ignorant. I fear there is no hope for him. He is so far gone into his religion he might well end up in a padded cell confined in a strait jacket. In my study of human progress as to why some apes are more intelligent than others. I could only find it is the luck of the draw. For strange and mysterious reasons I am highly favored. My grey matter is more inclined to absorb knowledge. Brother Happy’s brain, unfortunately, is simply inactive matter. It is as though he is a freak of nature.

By freak I mean he sees what is not there. He imagines that there is a God who loves us.

I see only what is there. In my world there is no such thing as blind faith. I must have evidence. I recall my thought when I first gazed upon one of my ancestors imbedded in the rocks. I wept uncontrollably. I must confess I was deeply distressed to think my smelly ancestor somehow ended up in a rock. I’m still trying to find out why. Will I end up in a rock also? A museum to be displayed as an example of perfectly evolved man? Whatever the case my only desire is that I can be used to further science.

Yes I am part of a large family tree. I am related to everything that breathes. I am just one of the many strange creatures that inhabit this planet. Why one is a cat and one is a mouse is easy to understand. The mouse evolved simply to be a plaything and food for the mysterious lazy cat. The antelope evolved simply to feed the starving lions. The leaf evolved for the tree. The strawberry evolved to be eaten on my morning cereal. Yes everything has a purpose. And when it is studied in-depth that purpose can be found.

Once long ago billions and billions of years ago strange creatures roamed the earth.

I am one of their descendants. I evolved from goo to great.

Dr Hotiarre boards his plane and flies away.

Title page to Locke's Some Thoughts Concerning...

Ladies and gentlemen thank you for attending our last evening of debate between the unbelievably outrageously ridiculously and phenomenally educated Dr Fuller O. Hotiarre. Whose credentials are such; that cannot be matched by any in scores of coveted degrees. He is well respected in the scientific community by those who are also highly educated. Tonight he will try one more time to convince Brother Happy that he is duped and incoherent. He has offered to pay for psychiatric counseling for Brother Happy. He also offers him free a copy of all of his books. That perchance Brother Happy may learn something. Of course he said this depending if Brother Happy can read. One last thing before I give the floor to Dr Hotiarre. He has told us that upon his death he wants his fantastic brain donated to science if perchance they may learn something to help educate people like Brother Happy.

Dr Hotiarre: I regret that this must be my last evening here with all you fine people. But I must fly to Vienna tonight for I am scheduled to speak at the University of Absurdly Intelligent on transitional fossils. I will present the billion year old bones of creatures whose DNA matches mine. I will prove to the ignorant of the amazing ability ape fossils possess to reveal to us our amazing beginnings from disgusting creatures.

It is time the human race learns that our intelligence was inherited from sex-crazed grunting beasts that roamed this planet hundreds of billions of years ago. I might add that when I was doing research on the everyday ape I learned from careful examination of this creature’s DNA that he once was able to reason and use logic. He learned to eat with his hands whereas billions of years before the time-god did his thing, he merely stuck his smelly disgusting mouth into the food the same way a dog or cat eats today.The time-god is to be commended for his tremendous powers to make something out of nothing.

And after much trial and error the close examination of ape bones revealed that he wanted something better. So he learned to eat with his hands. He began to peel bananas instead of eating them with the peeling still on. He learned to plant crops and teach his little monkey kids to read and write. Brother Happy could learn from them that as a descendant of these disgusting smelly beasts he also could learn. I conclude my presentation with one question for Brother Happy. Where is the evidence for all his claims?

Host: Brother Happy since this is our last night I hope you have evidence to present.

Brother Happy: I am the evidence that Christ lives!  God did not leave himself without witness! All my praise to God is evidence. My faith is the evidence of things not seen. It is the substance of things hoped for.  And it is the faith, by which I understand that the things that are seen were made by things not seen..that the worlds were framed by the word of God.. as says  Hebrews 11:1-2. When Dr Hotiarre sees me or sees any Christian, he sees a witness for Jesus Christ. Jesus said that we would be his witnesses all the way from Judea to the uttermost parts of the earth. If Dr Hotiarre does not accept this as evidence it doesn’t destroy the evidence. A city that is set on a hill cannot he hid. Jesus did not light me to put me under a bushel. But to give light to all that are in the house. My faith is the witness that I am for Christ. Christians are his witnesses that he lives! He lives in us! Praise the Lord!

Ladies and gentlemen thank you for coming tonight. We will continue with the debate between the distinguished and highly respected, phenomenally educated Dr Hotairre whose knowledge knows no bounds. He will again tonight debate Brother Happy. He will prove to Brother Happy, whom he refers to as an ignorant Bible thumping brain-dead fundie, who seems to lack the ability to think for himself; that it is quite scientifically impossible for an axe to float. He will demonstrate using scientific data that there was no miraculous parting of the Sea of Reeds since no chariot wheels have ever been found. Dr Hotairre will now speak:

Dr Hotairre: If Brother Happy will permit me to comment on his grey matter. He seems to lack the basic ability to think for himself. He believes what he is told with no thought that the very opposite may be true..

In my extensive research in the field of scientific data it is common knowledge that even among those whose IQ is 80 it is known that iron does not float. Now proving this is easily demonstrated. I have brought with me tonight an axe. Now would someone please provide me with a bucket of water?

A bucket of water is brought. Dr Hotairre takes the axe and drops it into the water. Sure enough it sinks to the bottom.

Now, says Dr Hotairre, everyone here of sound mind, which would exclude Brother Happy, knows that the axe will not cannot float to the surface. Yet ladies and gentlemen Brother Happy believes with every fiber of his being that at one time in ancient history an axe floated. He believes simply because he read it in that outdated book filled with contradictions called the Bible.

Now moving right along… I brought with me tonight documents proving there are no chariot wheels on the bottom of the Sea of Reeds. Do I really need to prove anything here tonight when sane people know that none of the things that Brother Happy believes in ever happened? As a proud and ludicrously educated agtheist which is a degree laden agnostic aka borderline atheist, I am free to ponder the mysteries of the universe. Mysteries when studied that each day are yielding new truths to the scientific community. Facts that we the educated may use to build a world where Darwin is respected for the genius that he was.

Do we really need the likes of Brother Happy whose sole goal in life is to praise the Lord? Has he no life? Has he not even one ounce of intelligence seeing he also is descended from apes? Apes which had the basic data within their genes to somehow turn into humans when the time-god did his thing; which was to simply pass.

Brother Happy seems to show all signs of a man who is ignorant of the power of the time-god. Given enough time and chance anything can happen. Anything. No god is needed!  Thank you.

Someone in the audience sends up his first question for Dr Hotairre.

The host reads it to Dr Hotairre: Your belief that given enough time and chance anything could happen Would that include an axe floating?

Dr Hotairre answers No because it is scientifically impossible. However apes turning into humans is not only possible it happened. Even though we are still disappointed that few transitional fossils have been discovered still we believe more will be found.

Another question from the audience:

The host reads it: Dr Hotairre with the passing of your wonder-working time-god, should there not by now, be found, BY CHANCEtrillions of transitional fossils seeing that according to you billions of years have passed? I mean how mush time do you need?

Dr Hoatairre replies..No obviously according to all the evidence we have not enough time has passed. It will probably not be in my lifetime. Time must pass! This is a must!

Dr Hotairre suddenly falls to his knees and begins to worship the time-god shouting..strange incoherent sounds that sound like an ancient voodoo song.

Host: Uh ok. Moving right along. We will now hear from Brother Happy:

Brother Happy: Thank you Jesus and glory to God! Wonderful wonderful God who loves us so much that he sent his Son to die on the old cross. He does a little dance claps his hands together and and sits down.

The Debaters (1)

Chinese human rights activist Liu Xiaobo award...

Ladies and gentlemen thank you all for coming tonight. Our speakers will debate whether science and the Bible have anything in common.

Our first speaker Dr Fuller O. Hotairre was educated in London, England at the prestigious university of higher learning Weighbridge. His knowledge knows no limit. His understanding defies human understanding. His wisdom defies the wise and learned..also

he attended the school of Socrates in Alexandria earning several degrees; where he later became  the highly respected Dean of students. He alone discovered that Greek philosophy when mixed with the teachings of Carl Jung with a pinch of Freud can raise one’s knowledge to  heights of ecstasy.

He has studied extensively and his knowledge is unsurpassed by any of his peers. Or by anyone for that matter.

He also served as the president of the college of Incredible Intelligence in Rome. While there in Rome the pope kissed his ring.

After that he earned degrees in every ology known to man. He presently is the respected president of the University of Learning So High that degrees from there can only be attained by a few whose IQ’s must be at least 198. He is fluent in seven languages. He has written over forty books which all have been best sellers.

He has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to educate the ignorant religious Bible thumping fundies. He works tirelessly to somehow convince them that they have been duped. He enjoys golf and traveling to places never before visited by humans. And he is only thirty-five years old. He calls himself an agtheist which is agnostic but technically a borderline atheist.

His Brilliance Dr Hotairre will now speak.

Dr Hotairre: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. My first presentation will be on unanswered prayer. God does not exist because I have never seen him. And my esteemed audience if I the magnificently educated Dr Hotiarre have not seen God, then he does not exist. I have never heard him with my perfectly healthy ears. I have never touched him. He simply is not here. He is not there. Ladies and gentlemen he is nowhere and not anywhere. He seems to be quite invisible as well as silent. He reigns from glory they say. But where is this glory? He wants praise from his prisoners. But why? Why praise him for an imperfect world? Could he with all his great awesome power have created a world without hurricanes and floods and tornadoes? yes. But he did not. Why? Because he did not want to is the simple answer…if he exists..which I am sure he does not exist. As the late great Alfred North Whitehead inquired why would any God want to be praised forever as does the Old Testament Yahweh?

But the greatest most convincing reason I am sure he does not exist is because he never answered one single prayer I prayed when I did believe in him. I read the Bible through and found nothing but contradictions. Oh yes my listeners I read it through.

I am disappointed it did not contain more information to solve our dilemma. What with all the blood, and smoking mountains, seas that mysteriously part, axes that mysteriously float, gore, wars, and incest, jealousy, idolatry, destroyed temples, wanderings, rapes, circumcisions, garden snakes,  misguided Egyptians, pathetic Persians, rowdy Romans, screaming pagans, confused Greeks, arrogant Assyrians, adultery, and murders, along with all the so called miracles it is a wonder these stories were preserved and handed down to the next generation of ignorant peasants who did not know their right hand from the left.

That is why I turned to science which has all the answers I need. But let us just take a little peek at the scriptures: For example who numbered Israel the Lord or Satan? It is maddening! There is no scientific reason that an axe would float. The Sea of Reeds has been searched thoroughly and not one chariot wheel has been found. Where are the stones Moses said the Ten Commandments were written on by the finger of God? There is not one shred of evidence that the Israelites wandered forty years in the wilderness. Where is the evidence for it?

It is absurd to believe that Elijah left here in a chariot. Science cannot support that the sun stood still at Joshua’s command.  It is not scientifically possible to produce the result Jacob did when he did his sheep experiment. I could go on and on naming one impossibility after another.

The notion that David killed a lion and a bear with his bare hands is absurd. Samson did not kill thousands of Philistines with the jawbone of an axe simply because there was no Sampson. What man needs is education. The world is in the condition it is in because of ignorance. It is a battle between those who have an education and those who need an education.

Thank you Dr Hotairre. We will now hear from Brother Happy.

Brother Happy: Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and thank you Jesus!

Glory to God! Praise the Lord for saving a wretch like me! I was lost and now am found. I was blind but now I see! I was full of hate and Jesus exchanged it for love! I was a sinner bound for hell. I am now saved and on my way to heaven.

Questioning God’s Existence (3)

the Gospel of Matthew

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; (Ephesians 2:20)

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 21:14)

Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and 1Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 cSimon the 2Cananite, and Judas dIscariot, who also betrayed Him.(Matthew 10:2-4)

The names of the apostles are also listed in Mark 3 and Luke 6 and Acts 1.

Can anyone see in these holy scriptures the names of any of the so-called church fathers?

The so-called church fathers are the ancient culprits who made so many errors and additions and subtractions to what the apostles said. This is the very reason there is so much division to this day. The apostles did not make the mess: the so-called church fathers did.

I am sure Paul did not alter what Peter said nor did Jude alter what John said and so on.

The so-called church fathers; the ancient wresters of the scriptures (Paul warned about in Acts 20) totally dismantled the epistles of the apostles to promote their own theology. However they did not dismantle what Jesus actually told the apostles. They did not destroy the truth. They simply added to the copies of copies of copies of the holy letters, or removed what did not suit their Roman theology. It is no small wonder that the church has been engaged in warfare for all this time.

If only they had just did what the apostles said and wrote.

The so-called church fathers never seemed to understand that it was Peter who had the keys to the kingdom NOT them. This of course would exclude the popes of Rome having any keys. Peter alone had the keys. When he explained to those Jews in Jerusalem in Acts 2 everything was clear. No keys were passed on to any Roman emperor. Having the keys meant that it would be Peter who would not only preach to the Jews how to be saved (Acts 2).

But also with those keys to the kingdom, he would be sent to the Gentiles when he went to Caesarea to meet the Roman centurion Cornelius of the Italian band (Acts 10) the first Gentile convert saved under Peter’s ministry. He to whom Peter spoke to concerning Jesus. God sent Peter after he had the vision of the sheet let down by four corners.

Paul told the Philippian jailer when he asked him what must he do to be saved to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and not only would he be saved,but also his house.  (Acts 16) Great news to know that one person saved means their whole family will be saved.

Who knows what alterations the so-called church fathers made in all the copies? We have learned of  many.  By the time they started wresting the scriptures they might not have even know what was scripture and what was not.

God watches over his word to perform it. He performs it in the lives of those who have placed their faith in him. We certainly cannot count on the so-called church fathers who changed every copy of a copy of a copy they got their hands on. It is the words of Jesus and the apostles needed not theirs. We have them but what else is there is not known except for a few errors that have been exposed thanks to the honest scholars who told us the truth about the so-called church fathers.

Clement of Rome, Tertullian, Justin Martyr, Ignatius, Origen and all the rest of them did not even know God. They certainly did nor fear him. Nor did they have any respect for the apostles of the Lord.

Yet they are revered as church fathers by Trinitarians.. Peter is mostly ignored and his words cast aside.

Jesus said to call no man on earth our father. But many don’t care what the Lord said they are going to do it anyway. I’m surprised they did not add a book to the Bible that Clement wrote and called it the first letter of Clement. But with all their additions they only added to themselves the plagues written in the Bible.

They added and took from the words of the apostles.1 John 5:7  is not in the earliest manuscript. Why? because they added it to support the trinity doctrine which was invented by the RCC in the 4th century. It was the trinity doctrine they were desperately trying to defend.  Certainly not the faith that was once delivered to the saints. So with their theological axes they begin to chop God into three persons (masks)  while calling the holy apostles of the Lord liars. And adding and taking away from the scriptures.

A few centuries after the apostles died; heresy ruled under the popes of Rome. Satan was doing all he could to attack the church.

There is no doubt that most of what the apostles said has reached us thanks to God. As for the errors and additions and subtractions by the so-called church fathers, it was prophesied by the apostle Paul that this would happen.

2For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Acts 20:27-31)

The only thing Paul did not say was their names. But he described the so called church fathers perfectly. They drew disciples after themselves. John Calvin murdered Michael Servetus because Michael Servetus refused to be a disciple of the church fathers: the grievous wolves John Calvin followed.

I decided to do an experiment. I called a Christian I knew. A young man of about 19. I explained to him that I was doing some research why do Christians believe in God. I asked him May I ask you a serious question? He said Yes. I asked him for my research Why do you believe in Jesus? I wanted to know did he believe because he read of him or heard of him or what.

He said I heard about him. I continued So you didn’t read it in a book? He said no.. that he had heard about him somewhere in his life journey. And is there any other reason? He answered I met him. I have felt him. He has talked to me.

Nothing could convince you otherwise? No he said Never.

Questioning the Existence of God

Pharaoh, the king of ancient Egypt, is often d...

Image via Wikipedia

A Christian was told by an atheist that no God opened the Red Sea for the Israelites like she had been told. Why? Because there is no God he declared.

To prove it, he went on; I know from intense and extensive research on this that during the ancient time of the Egyptian dynasties it is a scientific fact that the Sea of Reeds was only four inches deep. Totally impossible for your imaginary God to cause a wind to blow all night that parted the so-called deep waters. So you see there is no God and you have been duped he laughed.

The Christian was unmoved. She answered, It is more of a miracle then. That God could drown Pharaoh and his entire army in just four inches of water is incredible! And she began to praise the Lord.

Or the atheist who was talking to his Christian neighbor one day and said to her; There is no God and you know it! Well I know there is she said back to him. They continued this for a while then went back into their respective homes. The atheist thought to himself I will  prove to that Bible thumping,  non-thinking fundie there is no God.

So he hopped in his car and dashed off to the supermarket. He began filling up a cart with tons of vegetables and fruits, breads, cereals,  and a big gallon of milk. Then he tossed in a few steaks and a couple of chickens. He decided to throw in desserts  and soft drinks. Oh yes he thought.. better buy some coffee and tea. After he paid for it all he went home.

Late that night he placed all the goodies he had bought in a large box. Carrying them, he silently sneaked over to the Christian’s porch where he left them next to her front door.

Early next morning, he hurried outside and hid behind some bushes. He knew she would come out for her morning paper. At last she opened the door and immediately saw the box of goodies. She shouted praise the Lord!  Thank you Jesus!

Upon hearing that the atheist popped up out of the bushes laughing. He said God didn’t give you those groceries. I bought them myself! See I told you there is no God. You thought God brought them! but I did!

The Christian shouted even louder saying Praise the Lord! Not only did the Lord answer my prayer for groceries, but he made the devil pay for them! And deliver them to my door! Hallelujah!

All these so-called proofs that the Lord does not exist will never move the true follower of Jesus.

They claim the Bible cannot be trusted that the texts were changed. Scribes changed this word and that word. They added their own thoughts and opinions. How do you know the Bible is true? It is not inerrant. In fact it is full of errors.

They claim that maybe…Peter did not write Peter.  Or perhaps Paul founded his own church. Or Mark was wrong.  And hmm…Matthew does not exist and on it goes. They say that history proves the Bible to be just another book.

Actually the Bible proves itself true daily.

To be continued…

Those Who Accuse God Play With Lightning

Lightning

Jesus told Peter and the other disciples...But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  (Acts 1:8)

Jesus told them that his followers would be his witnesses. Living epistles read of all men. Yes we have the Bible but his witnesses are the Christians. This is why we must believe. If one doesn’t believe he will not follow Jesus.

Comparing the dead Sea Scrolls to the Old Testament; the Dead Sea Scrolls have 40% less content. What does this tell us? They have added to the Bible. Just like unscrupulous church fathers and scholars have added and taken away from the words of the apostles. And from the Lord Jesus himself in the New Testament.

Some You Tubers show their videos to try to prove that God is evil.

Absurd.

They complain that the Bible says God condones slavery and rape. That he orders children to be stoned to death. They go into detail. Suffice it to say they leave nothing out when quoting from the Bible to make their case against God.

Oh and let us not forget their favorite complaint: the so called” unwarranted massacre of the Canaanites”. (No one; absolutely no one but God himself knew who or what the disgusting, nasty, sexually perverted, devil worshiping, sacrificing their babies to demons, murderous, cannibalistic, ignorant, evil Canaanites were)  and because he did he ordered them killed.

Their descendants (if any exist) would not be ideal citizens.

Some accuse God. They do not see this as the extremely dangerous thing that it is to accuse God who is holy; of being evil. Jesus told the people that every sin would be forgiven to men except for one sin: the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. There has to be a perfect reason for that. Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is a sin! However it is the sin that has no forgiveness. Why? Because they said He has a devil.

It doesn’t take much figuring out to figure out why God has no forgiveness for that one sin. There exists an eternal uncrossable line between truth and error. Lie will compromise even appear as truth to deceive .  It appears to have crossed the line. But the truth is: error cannot cross that line; nor does truth try to. Truth cannot lie. But lie will appear as truth to deceive. Truth will not appear as evil nor compromise with it since truth is God. But evil will appear as truth and this is the danger when one sees a lie and calls it truth. Or sees truth and thinks it is the lie. To see one as the other and think it is truth is to see the lie as truth and the truth as lie. It cannot be done.

These accusers do not realize that there is good and evil and never the two can be one. God is one and he will remain One God.

Deuteronomy 6:4

Hebrew
Sh’ma Yis’ra’eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

But to say that the one God is evil when he is good is standing on the edge of a dark abyss in danger of falling into that eternal blackness. It is worse than playing with lightning.

God is good. Satan is evil. To say they are one and the same is really what they are doing. They are telling God that he is Satan.

It reminds me of the wicked man who was on his death bed. He had mocked God. He lived his life as if there is no God he would give account to. He mocked God by the life he lived, by the words he said. In truth by his behavior he said in his heart there is no God.

Right at the moment of his death he gasped and stared into space as if seeing something so horrible so evil his mind could barely grasp it. His last words as he looked full face into whatever horror was showing itself to him were: My God!

He did not see the God of the Bible who sent his Son to die for us. No doubt he saw his god Satan, the god of this world. But he called him My God! He saw what he believed in, and what he worshiped. He saw the personification of the lie that had come to him as truth; thus deceiving him.

Jesus Christ is the answer to all the evil in the world. God sent him to save us. I pray that sinners turn to him now, especially before they leave this world.

Don’t accuse God: trust him and He will show you the way.

No Secret Rapture

Lightning cloud to sea over Miramare di Rimini...

Image via Wikipedia

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Revelation of Jesus Christ 1:7)

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:27)

The preacher who said the world would end, that 200 million Christians would  disappear (raptured), that this was it,  woe to the inhabitants of the world on May 21 was wrong. And most of the world’s inhabitants knew he was wrong.

 Jesus said that as lightning strikes, so shall his coming be. Every eye shall see him when he comes with clouds.

Also there will be no secret rapture of Christians. The Bible says that when he comes every eye shall see him. For years the secret rapture has been taught. Many Christians now know that will not happen. The Left Behind story is: a story that is not true.

His coming in the clouds and his taking his church with his setting up his kingdom will all happen as lightning flashing in the sky. So how is every eye going to see him if he is coming with clouds as lightning flashing across the sky?

I don’t know but I do know he can and will do it as he said. Nothing is too hard for the Lord as he told Abraham and Sarah when He told them they would have a son in their old age. I would say a 90 year old woman having a baby from a 100 year old man is nothing short of a miracle.

What is really a loss is all the money Camping’s followers spent on billboards and other advertisements. But Jesus said no man knows the day, or the hour of his coming. It is strange these people did not read that ONE passage. Or if they did they dismissed it.

Now this same preacher said he was off by five months. Many will think he is just off. Jesus said false prophets would arise and deceive many. But may God bless Camping and make him see that one passage No man knows the day or the hour and understand it.

The Lord is coming and that is something to look forward to. The song below sounds more like what the Bible says will take place on that day when Jesus returns.

King Jesus (song) I googled...all the armies of the world shall someday gather... and hit on a great site called touchjesussongs.net and was able to listen to the song.

All the armies of the world will someday gather,

And they’ll pass before that great reviewing stand;

They’ll beat their swords and weapons into plowshares,

When the Prince Of Peace shall give the last command.

When King Jesus comes to live with us again,

He will show his righteous love to every man;

Wars and strife will all be past,

There’ll be peace on earth at last;

When King Jesus comes to live with us again.

Unobscured the Son will drive away the shadows,

At the dawning of that great eternal day;

And there’ll be no sounds of crying in the Ghettos,

For all grief and pain and death shall pass away.

When King Jesus comes to live with us again,

He will show his righteous love to every man;

Wars and strife will all be past,

There’ll be peace on earth at last;

When King Jesus comes to live with us again.

(I don’t know who wrote this song.)

God and Darkness and Light (Part 2)

Book of Genesis, Hainanese Bible.

Image via Wikipedia

12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Darkness was created by God in the beginning. He created darkness before He spoke light into existence.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also. (Genesis 1:16)

and we all know the moon, so they say, gets its light from the sun. But regardless, the sun and the moon are two great lights just as it says in the Bible.

So were darkness and light at one time the same? It says that he divided them and called the light day and he called the darkness night?  We know they are the same to him.

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light [are] both alike [to thee]. (Psalm 139:12)

But they were not to be the same to us.  Then Light appeared after God SAID.  He spoke and light came into existence. God saw that the light was good.

He never said the darkness was not good or that it was good. But it is made clear to us that he saw that the light was good.

Jesus is the word made flesh. Everything God had to say is Jesus Christ.

And Jesus said I am the light of the world. In other words there is no light but for him. What God said (the Word) came into existence in Bethlehem as a newborn baby: the Genesis 3:15 promised Messiah.

Light came into the world in Jesus Christ. And there is no darkness in Christ and no dusk.

The people who sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. (Matthew 4:16)

And this was two thousand years ago that these people were sitting there in darkness when they saw great light. They saw Jesus!

When God said let there be light the sun appeared. But there was much more to darkness and light than what nature is.

Did Eve see nothing wrong in doing wrong, so she did wrong? She and her husband left the light to walk in darkness. It was after the first humans sinned when God said he would put enmity between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent.

Obviously there was no enmity between the seeds before they ate of the forbidden fruit. There was no way Adam and Eve knew anything about it. They could not have known anything until the Lord told them what they had done. They only knew they were naked and ashamed. They did not repent of their sin but tried to explain it.. They did not ask for help. They said and did nothing except disobey.

But great light came into the world because God promised he would come.

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (Galatians 4:4)

God spoke light into existence in the beginning. Jesus was what God said made flesh.  Natural light: the sun moon and stars and spiritual light: the Christ.

Jesus even calls himself the bright and morning star. Well, every natural star rises earlier than it did the day before. So Jesus is saying he is always first.

Yet there will come a day when no light from the sun will be needed for it says the Lord will be the light thereof.

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 21:23)

There is no light but Jesus Christ. Without him there is darkness. If one walks in darkness he cannot see where he is going.

I pray everyone gets in the light who is Christ.


Does God Have A Plan For Your Life?

Darwin's finches or Galapagos finches. Darwin,...

Image via Wikipedia

I’m not making fun of smiling well dressed preachers. But is it right for one to stand there and promise riches fame and fortune to his donors when he himself has no clue what suffering is? While millions die lost why the smile?

Is Jesus laughing? How could God laugh when most of his creatures die not knowing him?

The preacher dressed in fine clothes, drives to his church, in his expensive car, after leaving his gorgeously well-furnished home, where his well-fed kids live; to tell thousands of total strangers that there is nothing to be concerned about: God will fix it all.

No God will not fix it all. Would he not have done it by now? This is quite obvious that something is wrong. Horribly wrong in the world. We do not live in a fairy tale world with silver and gold and velvet there for the taking. Billions lost without Christ and counting…and there has to be a reason why.

There is no such thing as just because. Why? Because things happen for a reason. The truth is evolution happens and God calls it sin. Evolution is the reason. Some evolve better than others just because natural selection decides who is rich and who is poor and who is educated and who is uneducated.  It began in the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve told God we want to naturally evolve not do your will. Let us go wherever nature takes us.

So off they went and the rest is history of blood murder suffering and pain and sorrow and so on…

Evolution decided because it is simply a natural thing. Darwin was right in his observations that natural selection happens. Sin happens it is a natural thing to be selfish and arrogant and proud. It is natural to want revenge on those who tried to stop your evolving. It is a natural thing to be smarter than the next guy and remind him of it each moment.  Or dumber than some and ashamed. It is a natural thing to hate and lie and steal and curse your brother who is also made in the image of God.

Evolution happens BUT  God calls it sin. And Christ came to destroy it.

People dying in many parts of the world: evolving according to the ability natural selection allows for. Inventing gods: someone, anyone, anything, that might listen, that might hear their cries for help… while those who know the true God shop eat, drink, laugh, and party.

Starvation and wars destroying their lands. People in hospitals dying of cancer and other diseases. Children sold into slavery used for sex.  Abductions and rapes and murders taking place.  Hurricanes and tornadoes and tsunamis destroying lives and property. Pestilences and famines and wars and rumors of wars. False prophets and false Christs. Hatred and divisions and poverty ignorance and crime. Confusion and pain. Tears sorrow and heartache in many parts of the world. Divorces and broken homes caused by fornication, adultery, and homosexuality. Thousands missing. Pictures on milk cartons and on walls with a question: Have you seen me?

But a smiling preacher with a big smile says:

I like to start with a joke.  People need to hear a funny joke. Why? Because the Bible says that laughter does good like a medicine. Are you having trouble in your life? Well..God is going to bless you. That’s right he is going to take you places you never dreamed of.

That promotion you’ve been wanting? Well God is going to give it to you. And even if he doesn’t don’t be discouraged it only means he has something better for you.

Are you wondering what stocks and bonds to buy? Well.. no need to be concerned. God is going to show you which ones to invest in. Do you have a decision you need to make? Don’t worry because God is going to help you make the right decision. Everything is going to be alright. God is going to help you. Why? Because he has a wonderful plan for your life.

(I had a preacher friend now deceased, who said he saw where a preacher had notes for his sermon in his Bible. On one note it instructed him..Cry here.)

Did God have a wonderful plan for the apostle Paul’s life? He was beheaded in Rome; the very city he took the gospel to. What about all the early Christians who were killed for the faith? Was that really God’s plan for their life?

Did God have a plan for the apostle Peter’s life? He was crucified upside down. Did God have a plan for Stephen’s life? He was stoned to death for the truth.

How is it that God has a wonderful plan for some lives but not for other lives? God is no respecter of persons.  What he did for the Jews he did for the Gentiles.

He loved the Greeks and the Romans, the Parthians the Medes the Elamites and all the others . So obviously the problem must be at our end not his.

Why would God have a wonderful plan for one life and not for another? Is it the wonderful plan of God fulfilled to be killed for one’s faith? Is it the wonderful plan of God for children to be sold into sex slavery?

The truth is God has the same plan for all of us. Repent and believe the gospel and you will be saved.

GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE….is the great commission.

God and Darkness and Light

Absolute darkness

Image via Wikipedia

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. (Genesis 1)

Not at the beginning but In the beginning God created. He created the heaven and the earth. Not he created the heaven and the earth and other planets.  No that is not what it says. And now we know there are numberless galaxies out there  each owning billions perhaps trillions of planets; but only one planet is named by name when God in the beginning created. The one we live on which is earth. Sounds like earth is singled out because all other planets are considered the heaven.

The earth had no form and it was void after he created it. Empty. This is what God created: the earth empty and without form. Darkness was upon the face of the deep. The darkness is not underneath the face of the deep, but only on its face. (There is a reason for all this. God is not a foolish God he is not a wasteful God. Anyone who sees what he made should know this. Sadly many do not. It is easier to project onto God their own feelings. They blame him instead of simply taking him at his word.)

So far God has said nothing.

Then the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. We cannot assume anything here such as the face of the waters is the face of the deep.

I don’t know and neither does anyone else. No one but God was there.

Then His Spirit moved on the face of the deep.

Notice there is no light. None. He created darkness? It doesn’t say that: it says he created the heaven and the earth and the earth not the heaven was without form and void and DARKNESS was upon the face of the deep.

But we can know that he did make the darkness by this verse:

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:3) Darkness would be included in these “all things” because darkness is a thing.

Look skyward during the day and see there our only source of light: the sun.

God did not create the sun….yet.

Note: Darkness  is not a ball of gas in the sky shedding darkness over the world. Darkness permeates everywhere: it doesn’t come to us from a certain source as light comes to us from the sun and moon and stars. I t is simply here it is there. Darkness is as natural as it is dominant.

However the sun is a ball of gas in the sky shedding light over all the world. Darkness is not what the sun is. When the sun goes down in the west we are then in total darkness. We switch on our Edison invention to have light to light our dark world.

It is dark by nature it is dark by divine decree. Where the sun is not shining there is darkness. We do not plug in a lamp in a room to make it dark. We plug in a lamp to tap into light so we can see, so we can feel better, so we can live better. Light is what we need. If someone says he doesn’t mind to live in darkness he is either blind or demented. Light is what we prefer to darkness.

Seven of the most beautiful words in existence which are recorded in the Bible are And God said let there be light.

As soon as he said these words there came into existence what he said. And there was light and God saw that the light was good. So far here God created and the Spirit of God moved. Then he spoke. He said and what he said came into existence. So God did not create the sun he spoke it into existence. That is what it says: he said let there be light. His command was immediately obeyed.

People blame God for evil in the world, for all that men do in the darkness they blame God. For all nature’s disasters they blame God. For man’s inhumanity to man they blame God. For all the darkness in men’s hearts and souls they blame God. They accuse him that he could have made a better world and he did not. Why? He has the power to do it so why did he create evil. Why does he allow suffering and death in a world he claims to love?

They lose their faith because God does not think as they think. They arrogantly think they could have done a better job of creating a world. They would get rid of evil. In fact they maintain they would not have created a world with evil in the first place.

So what are they saying in all their complaints and accusations? They are basically saying they are kinder than God, and wiser, and more powerful in their thinking. They place themselves above God in their intellect. They imply they are better than he. But we cannot come to God with our so-called intellect. Some say God only responds to faith. Hold it! Adam and Eve had no faith when they blatantly disobeyed God. It was God who initiated the reconciliation.. It was God who promised them a Redeemer. It was God who made them clothes to wear when they became ashamed of themselves.

Darkness was before light. Darkness was and light came into existence because GOD SAID. It is of eternal importance what God says. His word is what it is all about. We can speak and nothing happens. We can say the truth or lie and nothing happens. Not so with God when he speaks he can and does call into existence things; even things that were not as though they were. 

….and calleth those things which be not as though they were.  (Romans 4:17)

There is a connection of  natural and spiritual darkness: that permeates our existence on earth; with the  spoke into existence light to Jesus Christ, and the cross on which he died.

People question God and accuse and slander him. You tube is full of accusing God videos. Websites where he is utterly hated and slandered.

But something happened at the Cross which answers and explains. It is the only answer that exists. Why do we know Jesus existed? Because history records he was born. He was the Word made flesh. Not as in….he suddenly was there in Israel. No there is more to it than that. A long history that began before the foundation of the world. God already knew what he would do before In the beginning.

Preachers Under Judgement

Torah inside of the former Glockengasse synago...

Image via Wikipedia

For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14)

Is it right for rich preachers to make their own Bibles? Placing their name on it with their understanding of what each verse means under each verse?

Then putting it up for sale? Or when it doesn’t sell so well it goes on sale?

Common sense tells us it is wrong to do this? Do they really think God can not do without them? Do they really think God needs them to interpret each verse for the so-called layperson?

Anyone who knows how to read can read for themselves what says the holy Scriptures. And it is the Holy Spirit that teaches not sinful man.

How I understand may not be how you understand. But who can disagree with another on the Ten Commandments? We all know what it means when it commands us not to murder, lie, commit adultery, steal and so on.

And everything else we can do, or not do is somehow connected to those commandments.

When I first learned of Jimmy Swaggart taking the Bible verse by verse then underneath each verse writing his understanding of it I was saddened.

Scary.

Who do these people think they are? That they can take the written word of God wrest it to mean what they think; and say God did it? Then put it up for sale.

All these preachers doing this means they are under judgment.

No sane person would do this.

Judgment is falling on rich preachers.

Years ago I heard a preacher ( I do not know his name) teach that it is dangerous to live as do some when we look at what the early church went through.

When this radio preacher told of Ananias and Sapphira being struck dead he made it clear that Acts 7: 51-60 records that Stephen was stoned to death.  James was about to be killed with the sword. Peter would be crucified upside down in Rome where Paul would have his head chopped off. Let us not forget John the Baptist who lost his life because he dared to name sin in Herod’s life. Most of all Jesus the Lord of glory was executed as a criminal.

Peter did not say to them..” Ananias and Sapphira it is okay for you to love self, lie and use money that is being collected to help those in need to buy yourself designer robes or 100 new horses because after all it is no big deal that brother Stephen is about to be stoned to death. James will soon be killed with the sword, but hey it is okay for you to be greedy, and lie to the church and take advantage. Paul will be beheaded in Rome, and who knows how many here will be thrown to Roman lions to be torn to pieces. I will be crucified upside down. Our Lord himself died on a cross but be greedy all you want. God understands your need to be rich and have stuff. Thomas will be skinned alive in India and John will be boiled in oil before he is banished to die on Patmos but  God understands that you are special and deserve more than the lost and dying.”

The truth is Peter revealed their lie and greed. Before the whole church he exposed their hypocrisy and God struck them dead. And the church moved on in victory.

Money loving greedy lying hypocrites Ananias and Sapphira were denied by God to be joined to these true soldiers of the cross called the Church. And God has not changed.

Do these rich greedy preachers think that their greed and covetousness will go unnoticed by honest preachers who will expose them and that they will escape being struck dead by God?

History tells that Thomas was tortured and killed in India. Many of the early Christians were thrown to lions to be killed and eaten. The story goes on how they suffered for their faith. Throughout history millions have died for their faith in the Christ.

Even today it is happening.

But here are preachers taking in hundreds of millions of dollars from donors. The sermons they sell from what they say onstage recorded and made into a book brings in more money. They live in riches as does the popes of Rome and the queen of England and Oprah.

They drive Mercedes-Benz and even Rolls Royce’s. They wear expensive jewelry and tailor-made designer clothes. Yet some who follow these false prophets have accused Christians of exposing them because they are jealous of them.

Correction: No Christian is envious of what Satan does.

Christians are concerned because this false gospel of prosperity deceives.

It is not God doing this in these preachers but Satan and their own flesh; added to their love for the world, and the things that are in the world.

No sane person is jealous of that.

These rich unscrupulous preachers do this knowing that those who wrote the Bible by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit suffered and died martyr’s deaths. Yet they think they can make a Bible with their name on it then tell us what each verse means? Words written in the blood of those who wrote those words.

Scary.

How can this not be arrogance? There is no doubt these preachers are under judgment. That is why they behave as they do; they do not know the difference between right and wrong.

Does Joyce Meyer think it is holy (she is supposed to be living holy) when she stands and says God made me rich, while  walking across a stage dressed in designer clothes bought with offering money; reading the carefully preserved letters of  men: Paul the apostle: who had his head chopped off for the gospel and Peter who was crucified upside down?

Does she really think Jesus and his disciples died as they did so she could own stuff she doesn’t even need?

Jimmy Swaggart trying to tell us what these great men of God meant when they penned their holy letters right before they were killed for their faith while he sits in his jacuzzi?

I remember that radio preacher called  it playing the most dangerous game in town.

To stand behind the sacred desk dressed like Herod while bowing to Caesar; holding the world’s most precious possession preaching words from its pages that were sealed in the blood of the men who wrote them down; is indeed to play the most dangerous game in town.

Scary.

Jesus said they will not lose their reward if they even give a cup of cold water to someone in the name of a disciple. But they are not doing it in the name of a disciple but in their own name.

Judgment came to Ananias and Sapphira when they lied to the Holy Ghost. They both fell dead at Peter’s feet.

Does anyone really think he is better than Ananias and Sapphira if he is also robbing and controlled by greed?

They could have kept their own money, but they lied to the Holy Ghost and forfeited their lives.

Peter the Apostle Mostly Ignored by Trinitarians

Crucifixion of St. Peter by Caravaggio. The ea...

Image via Wikipedia

As I said in an earlier blog I have attended through the years both trinity and oneness churches. I love both the Oneness people and the Trinitarians. I have been around both for years and years and they are people who love the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have noticed that in their churches (anyway the ones I attended for 20 years) Trinitarians never mention the apostle Peter. I have never heard his name mentioned except a couple of times in passing.

But Peter, if one reads Acts 2 said some things to those Jews that day that is very interesting. The entire sermon is educational reading about who Jesus is. I truly believe Peter knew who Jesus was. Augustine, Justin Martyr and Tertullian, Clement, etc. were in no way qualified to decide anything.

If they had power to decide then so do the popes of Rome. But wherever you find Catholicism you find poverty and crime and ignorance. The Bible is closed and not open for additions and subtractions. What is true is true and I cannot say what is true if it is not true. The RCC is way off track from the time they elected their first pope and some time before that.Their history is of blood and murder and not what Jesus taught.

Common sense tells us it is not right to be carried around on a pillow “forgiving” sins. Sorry but the pope cannot forgive anyone’s sins. He needs forgiveness himself. Their priests need to learn about the Levitical priesthood and of Aaron’s line. If they knew about Melchizedek I guarantee they would not be priests.

But many believe traditions instead of what the Bible really says. Ask Jesus what he thought of man-made traditions. He was quite clear about it. Ask the Pharisees.

The Jews the Jews what says the Jews? What God had the Jews known? Yahweh. Not only did they know him they knew he was not open for suggestions to change him. He killed people in the Old Testament. They knew who he was. They never said he was a first person. It simply isn’t in the scriptures. If they did I would have to believe it.

But Peter in his message explained to them who Jesus is. The man with the keys. He even said that Jesus had shed forth the Holy Ghost on those in the upper room. What? How could it be that it was Jesus who shed forth the Holy Ghost? I don’t know I just know that is what Peter said. He should know he was with Jesus and had the keys to the kingdom.

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. (Acts 2:33)

I don’t care what Trinitarians or Oneness say. I am so tired of their conflict which they will answer to God for.

I do care what Peter said here in this passage. He said that it was Jesus who shed forth the Holy Ghost. Peter did not attend Wheaton or Dallas Theological seminary. He had no degrees behind his name. But he is the disciple to whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom. The pope of Rome may claim to be Peter’s successor. But anyone with common sense knows that Peter who was later crucified upside down would not be a part of anything the church of Rome believes and practices.

No Peter would never have allowed himself to be adorned with jewels with people kissing his ring ( I know of no passage where Peter wore jewelry or tiaras) while riding around in a pope mobile. Nor would Peter have been a part of anything the church of Rome does.

It was Rome who killed Peter. Ask John on Patmos and he will tell you there in his book that Jesus sent no letter to Rome. The seven letters were sent to the seven churches in Asia.

Peter said that God had made Jesus BOTH Lord and Christ. Not three persons but Lord and Christ. Well we all know who the Lord to the Jews was. He was the God of the Old Testament. We all know who the Christ is: the Anointed One. Here Peter said Jesus was both Lord and Christ. 

Peter also said in his sermon that God promised to raise up Christ to sit on David’s throne. It isn’t rocket science to know how God did that. Jesus being a descendant of king David made him heir apparent to the throne of David. He is not coming back to sit on David’s throne. He occupies it now and forever. And as Gabriel told Mary of her son Jesus.. “And of his kingdom there shall be bo end.”

Herod might have thought he was sitting on it. But Peter knew better. So did Mary and Joseph.

As long as people ignore Peter and his great sermon in Acts 2 they will believe there is a trinity.  How God could be three persons when the Bible says he is one Lord is anyone’s guess. There is nowhere in the New Testament where this is taught.

Never mind labels and calling people names. What says the scripture?

Fact: The word person means  mask. It comes from the old Greek word persona. When the ancient Greeks did their plays they would wear a different mask for each character they played if there were not enough actors available. I did a word search.

They changed masks to be whatever person they pretended to be. So is it that wicked men of the past did this to Jesus. Ignoring without conscience what the great apostle Peter said they decided that Jesus is One of three different personas all called Yahweh. The second one no less. I don’t care what the church fathers said. I will never move away from what the apostles said.

Tradition has been a problem for many people. Ask the Pharisees whom Jesus rebuked time and again for taking the word of God and making it of no effect by their manmade traditions. The trinity doctrine is a tradition and there is serious questions that Matthew 28:19 was added to the Bible.

 John 5:7-8 was added because it is not found in the original manuscripts.

If there was a Matthew 28:19 the apostles never mentioned it and preached nothing about it. There is not even a hint that they acknowledged it as if it was there.

If it was added I am sure whoever did this dastardly deed has the plagues written in the Bible added to them. No doubt.

After the church got to Rome and the apostles died all hell broke loose. Anyone who studies history will learn of all their isms and schisms and baptisms and confusions. Crusades and murder and blood  and egotistical self-serving popes is the history of the trinity church after the apostles died. Sorry but the truth is the truth.

I have studied what church fathers taught? Yes and I have studied the Bible and what the apostles said. Big difference. I had to decide who to believe: Peter and the other disciples OR church fathers. Going to both trinity and oneness churches I had to decide: It was the apostles or the church fathers. There really was no contest. The church fathers lost.

Stephen when he was being stoned to death by the Jews with Paul there holding their coats said that he could see the glory of God and Jesus standing on his right hand. Stephen didn’t say he saw two persons. I would have to admit it if Stephen had said “I see the glory of God and Jesus the second person of the trinity standing at the right hand of the first person.

From Stephen’s vision we can know he saw only Jesus. I will believe Stephen. No first person no second person no fourth person. Nowhere in all the epistles will you find the word first or second when referring to Jesus Christ.

In fact in Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter one verse 8 The Lord Jesus told John there on Patmos. I will go with John here also. Tertullian loses. So do all the popes of Rome.

 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

It does not record that John asks or wonders why was Jesus calling himself the Alpha and Omega. Whey did he refer to himself as he which is, and which was, and which is to come and not the second person. What? The second person of the not yet invented trinity three persons in a mysterious godhead is calling himself the ALMIGHTY?

How anyone can find in this passage that Jesus is a second person is anyone’s guess. But they without conscience without thought cast away what John said and call Jesus a second person (mask).

One Trinitarian said that Isaiah in chapter 9 when he said that the name of the Lord will be called the everlasting Father meant father of lights. I was shocked and horrified that anyone could add to what the Hebrew prophet said. He said everlasting Father so leave it there.

  1. They ask how could Jesus be his own Father? Well how could Jesus be the rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, the bright and morning star, the door, the way the truth the life, the good shepherd, the lamb for sinners slain the one who was dead and now is alive forevermore, the first and the last the Almighty?

Paul on his way to Damascus was blinded by light. He asked a great question. He only knew the God of the Old Testament. WHO ARE YOU LORD? He knew it was the Lord who stopped him. Here he was doing all he could to please God by killing Christians and he is apprehended by God. What is going on here he wondered.

I am Jesus was the answer. Not I am the second person in the godhead.

I have to go with Paul’s report. Sorry Clement and Tertullian and Augustine and Justin.

If I ask the Lord who he is he will tell me what he told Saul of Tarsus:

I am Jesus.







Oneness and Trinity

Jesus

So the Trinitarians teach that when one is immersed in water it is not necessary to SAY the name of Jesus. Because the name of Jesus simply means in the authority of his name.

SAYING his precious wonderful name is not necessary.

Why it is necessary to SAY out loud ” in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost” when Trinitarians water baptize a convert, but NOT necessary to say out loud: the Name that is above every name; the name of Jesus Christ in water baptism when oneness baptize a convert has never been explained by Trinitarians.

I’ll explain it: it is hypocrisy and a double standard.

I see nothing wrong in anyone saying over me that NAME JESUS that is above every name. They may lay hands on me in that NAME and they may immerse me in that precious name. I don’t mind at all. It is that name that saves. It is Jesus who bled and died for me and no one else. I have nothing against that name. Say it over me all you want. 

After Revelation of Jesus Christ 22:21 I have great doubt they knew that they were doing.

One trinity preacher asked me why was I baptized in Jesus name. I answered him, “Because I know how to read.” He laughed and said he had never heard that answer before.

I look back and think there was no Internet for me when I was attending both trinity churches and oneness churches, so attending both has qualified me to speak for both.

When I was water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of my sins I did not even know there was a trinity doctrine. We just took Peter literally when he said to do this in Acts 2:38 when they asked him what shall we do. We only had the Bible and went by that. 

Augustine was no one we knew or heard of. I knew nothing of church fathers. The Bible was all we had to go by. So when Jesus told Peter that he gave him the keys to the kingdom we understood it to mean that Peter had the keys to the kingdom of God.

So when Peter commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ who were we to go against the great apostle? We simply took the Bible literally. Peter was with Jesus. Peter was with him for forty days after the Lord resurrected. So surely he knew more than we. He understood. He was even told by Jesus that flesh and blood did not reveal to Peter who Jesus was, but the Father in heaven.

So we were sure that Peter knew what he was talking about.

I read a Universalism member say that the water baptism in Jesus name was only for the Jews.But Cornelius was of the Italian band and Peter baptized him also in the name of the Lord. Which name we know to be Jesus.

One friend of mine said she was baptized in the name of the Trinity doctrine. But she was not satisfied. Hmm..what could it be? So she got baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. She got happy and said that  is what I was looking for.

“Now” she smiled and said, “I am satisfied!”

In both churches there was sin all over the place. And also some wonderful people.

I hate the Trinitarians condemning the Oneness and the Oneness condemning the Trinitarians.

Without love we are not saved no matter how we are water baptized.

Oneness and Trinity Fiasco

Ljubljana. Church of Sacred Heart of Jesus. St...

Image via Wikipedia

I’ve been surfing the internet finding that many are leaving the UPCI. Some also leave the Trinity church. I left them both.

The UPC is the church that believes and teaches that one must be baptized in Jesus name and reject all teachings of church fathers. The Trinity church is the one that follows the teachings of  church fathers. And condemn the UPC.

They teach it is not necessary to actually SAY the name of Jesus when baptizing a convert as says Acts 2:38….. Yet they find it necessary to SAY in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost when they baptize a convert in water.

I read a little of what some had to say online in their complaints. I think it is fair to be fair. One former member of the UPCI said she was disfellowshipped because her pastor had a revelation that she had a sinful and rebellious heart.

I had a trinity pastor tell me worse. He walked up to me after church and said the Lord had showed him that I had said something negative about him. I looked at him with sincere concern for his mental health.  I knew that I had not done what he said.  I told him it was not true. But he insisted it was true because the Lord had shown him. It was awful. Awful for him.

I left never to return. I was beyond all doubt knowing that he was hearing voices or he had a vivid imagination. He died not long after that.

I had a UPC pastor tell me something that wounded my heart. I had a Trinity pastor totally hurt my feelings. God just had me in both churches. Now I know why. It was to make me know that both are wrong in their treatment of the other. I was there in both and neither are perfect as far as doctrine or in their treatment of others.

I have attended both churches through the years: Oneness and Trinity. I call myself a Christian. Not a trinity one or a oneness one. I am a follower of Jesus. They could keep their labels I don’t want them.

I had no problem attending both churches. However  I did not believe in not cutting the hair like the UPC teaches.. I did not think it wrong for women to wear pants. I did not think it a sin for women to wear lipstick (as long as it wasn’t black) I saw it as legalism and rejected it as not of God.

I also rejected many things the Trinity church taught such as condemning the Oneness church while they slandered others. And their total lack of standards for dress and conduct.

One member of a trinity church I attended “had a dream”. After this Trinity church listened to his so called dream from God a entire family was destroyed as well as an innocent man.

It is wrong to hate others and judge them no matter how you are baptized in water.  I saw both churches in action. Both have their share of liars and gossipers and hypocrites. No long dress only  a long tongue. No long sleeves only a long history of gossiping. No long hair had the Trinity sister but her tongue reached to the ground.

I do not attend any church now just because it is easier not to. I like it better not to go to any church.

Here is what I saw in the Oneness and the Trinity churches. Slander and gossip and hypocrisy.  Adulterous ministers and gossiping wives of the ministers. I never blamed God.

I knew God had not a thing to do with it.

The UPC is a great church. I have been greatly blessed there. Great songs of the church have come from them. Dottie Rambo was saved in the UPC. Lanny Wolfe also was from there and he wrote great songs all Christians sing.

Funny how some Trinitarians sing the songs the Oneness wrote but think they are better than the UPCI members.

I attended Trinity churches for years. Assembly of God and the independent Pentecostal churches.  Some wonderful people there. Then I would go over and go to a service at a UPC.

I love the Oneness ministers as well as the Trinity preachers. I have sat under both and was blessed by them all. I still will listen to a sermon by either a Trinity preacher or a Oneness. It makes no difference to me as long as I receive from God what he has for me.

I take the wheat and throw the chaff away.

I think the UPC would do better if they would stop their legalism. I saw a sister of the UPC who looked 20 years older than her years. Why? Something is not right there.  I used to pray and still do for God to show the UPC where they are wrong in some things. Some things not all. I pray for the self-righteous Trinity people also.

God help the Trinity believing folks also with their judgmental attitude and their unloving hearts which I have seen so much of.

History records of the murder of a Oneness Christian by a Trinity Christian. John Calvin murdered Michael Servetus. Because Servetus did not agree with Calvin he had him killed without mercy. Yet there are those who are proud to call themselves Calvinists.

It is wrong.

We are to love even as Jesus loved and if we don’t there is no heaven waiting for us.

I would have no problem naming a dog Trinity or  naming it Oneness.

Neither  labels are Biblical so they demand no respect from me.

Fasting

Food for Life distributes food on an internati...

Image via Wikipedia

I want to say a little here about fasting. It is not easy to go without food.

See the pic? To fast is to not eat any of this or anything else that is called FOOD.

But want to tell here what I have learned to do a successful orderly fast.

Of course God honors all fasting. Whether you fast one meal a day. Or one meal a week he honors  it and blesses.

I used to have the hardest time staying with the fast and would soon break it. I asked God what is the problem. He did answer and made me understand that when one fasts one must be patient. It takes time for time to pass. Yes. One must be patient and realize that when you start the fast (at night) it will take hours to pass the next day; for you to have gone through the first day of your fast. Waiting is a great way to look at fasting. Wait for the days to pass while you go without food.

Also look at that the soul is being fed while the body is denied. Jesus for the joy that was set before him endured…Someone said that if one had two dogs and fed one and starved the other (of course we do not starve animals) one dog will be stronger and the other will be weaker and perhaps die.

Same with spirit and flesh. Whichever one gets fed the most is the stronger.

I do not believe in the so-called Daniel fast since it is basically nothing more than a diet. Fasting is to abstain from food. It is not eating three nutritious meals a day for 21 days and call it after the Prophet. Let them do what they want. I will not eat three nutritious meals and day and call it fasting. However I can do it and call it a great way to lose weight and feel better.

With true fasting which is NO food…be patient and wait for the day to pass as you fast without food.  Then wait for the second day to pass. Then the third. Patience is important. Drink water this helps fill the stomach where food is not that interesting at the moment.

I heard a preacher (I had never heard of him before, but ran into him there) at You tube the other night say  your destiny is greater than your dilemma. Jeff Arnold preached a great sermon (the video is at You tube) entitled I will not die in my dilemma. His sermon begins at video 2. I go listen to him preach that great uplifting sermon it always helps and lifts.

I am going there tonight to listen to it again. It is that healthful to the soul.

You will not die in your fasting either if you do it correctly drinking water and spending time in prayer.

Common sense has to be exercised when fasting.

What is Death? It Is Not An Open Door.

The skull and crossbones, a common symbol for ...

Image via Wikipedia

The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death. (1 Corinthians 15:26)

(God’s promise to us)

The Bible doesn’t paint pretty pictures of death. The Bible doesn’t say that death is anything but what it is: our lethal foe.

Death is our enemy. It is not an open door. It is not the rose that grows beside the wall. It is not a better place as some say to grief-stricken survivors. It is not a trip to heaven aka NDE.

Painful silence dark and dreadful is what one experiences who has lost loved one. Unspeakable pain and sorrow. Death speaks to no one. It comes and takes a loved one with no explanation. Though one searches the world over he will not find the dead loved one. Death leaves excruciating grief behind. No amount of words can bring back the loved one. No poem though how lovely can restore the joy the loved one’s presence brought. Nothing not even time can heal the broken life; the shattered and destroyed heart. Time only takes one farther and farther away from the date of the death. Death is never accepted it is borne by the ones left here who have no choice but to somehow learn to live without the loved one.

One is forced to go on alone. Part of one dies with the loved one in the sense that what was alive in the remaining living one’s heart is now gone. It seems it left with the loved one.

And as each year passes the day of the death passes again. It brings remembrance and sorrow. It is merciless in its action. Death hates as we can see for it takes what we love never to return it again.

Death is evil. It is without mercy. It leaves no note of apology behind after it steals the cherished treasured person. Silence is all that is left. The empty chair. The place that will never be filled again by that person is now just a place of torment to the one still here.

The mortician does all he can to make the horrible face of death look a little better. Impossible. It is horrible ugly death. Irreversible death. Cold and still and colorless. Eyes that will not open. A tongue that cannot speak. The body is cold not warm. The spirit is gone and all the love one felt from the loved one cannot be felt. Warmth is fled; the love that was felt in the heart for the loved one is gone. Though love is as strong as death as the Bible says;  that love will not bring back the loved one. It is that the loved one died still loving the ones left here. It is out of reach never to be felt again here.

Death is the cause of unspeakable pain and suffering. Some have even killed themselves at not being able to bear life without the loved one.

I know someone who said he was with his brother one morning. They were going to have breakfast together. The one brother excused himself to go use the restroom. He walked back into the room where his brother had been sitting and laughing. His brother sat with arms outstretched with his head almost as if thrown back. Eyes closed with a certain horrible look on his face. The brother knew immediately his brother was dead. He tried to revive him but to no avail. Death came when it wasn’t expected as it usually does. It came, and stole, murdered and left without a word or warning.

The coroner determined a massive heart attack occurred.

Cold and without life was the body left here. Colorless and still. No love could be seen, nor joy; and no peace. Only the ugly and evil death that now was in control. He knew that the brother he loved was not there anymore. Only an empty shell now remained. A shell that looked perfectly repulsive. Not the person who lived there was repulsive and horrid. No he was gone from there. But what death had done to the body when the soul was taken out of it was repulsive.

He looked at death and saw his enemy and the enemy of his brother. He knew he could not reverse it. He knew only of One who had. One who had died once himself (murdered) and had come back. Not with any stories of meeting a being of light. But with the message that death still must be destroyed and it will be at the end of time. Jesus said he was dead and now alive forevermore. But to live again one must be in the resurrected Christ. The brother clung to that hope that death will someday be destroyed and he will see again his laughing brother.

Where are you? Where did you go? Are you alright? Can you see me? Are you alright? are some of the natural questions that arise after death has taken a loved one. Where is my loved one? Is he alright? Oh God is he alright? Some may think death is the end. But the Bible says differently. Just because one thinks death is the end doesn’t make it so.

What death left here is proof of what it is. Not an end but a horror. An horror that is the cause of separarion and anguish and pain. Does one really thing death did that to the one it left behind to bless the one it took? No it did not come to bless or help. It came to kill to murder for that is what death is: our enemy the very demonic thing that seeks to kill us. That does kill us. Death kills it does not open doors for anyone.

Tears and anguish. Agony and pain and nothing can help. Only God can help and comfort. Another brother who learned his younger brother had been killed in a car wreck wept and cried. He said I just want to know that he is alright.

But those who report NDE’S claim it is all okay after death. But the fact is death is our enemy and in no way does it do anything to bless us. No blessing left here; and no blessing did it give the one it took.

It came to rob to kill and to destroy. Us and them.

It is natural to be concerned for the loved one. Where did they go? It is an excruciating experience that cannot be reversed.

The Bible never calls death an open door or a rose or anything but what it is: the last enemy that shall be destroyed.

NDE’S claim that death is just a way through a tunnel. Or a superman ride to see the world in different realms of existence. That whoever dies experiences seeing light and beams and the way to meet unconditional love.

Not so. Death is our enemy. Nothing can lessen its evil nor undo its destruction. Death is not an NDE. It is the human being’s ENEMY and the enemy of God. It is not God’s open door to heaven.

Jesus said he is the Door. Death is not an open door. Jesus doesn’t work hand in hand with death….he came to destroy it.

Only in Christ; the Christ of the Bible can we someday be raised from death to live forever with Jesus Christ.

NDE’s False Prophets and Counterfeit Jesus (Part 1)

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

Where is this “all power and signs and lying wonders” mentioned in the above passage? In  Satan. Where is “all deceivableness of unrighteousness “? It is in them that perish. Why is it there and how did it get there? Because they received not the love of the truth. But had pleasure in unrighteousness. Then comes the strong delusion. They become deluded and believe a lie.

Leave the Bible which is the Written Word of God; and you are a sitting duck for every wind of doctrine that flies by.

Such as:

NDE”S… or so-called out-of-body flights or walks through strange places meeting “Jesus” who is “a great beam of light” who tells you he loves everyone unconditionally is a big bag of lies. Live any way you want and don’t worry because you are accepted unconditionally is not true..

The Bible is clear that God commands repentance and fruits to prove repentance took place. But many are confused as to what sin is. They assume sin is what they think it is. Sin is the transgression of the law. What law? God’s law. What is God’s law? The law he gave to Israel at Sinai.

These so-called moves of God where things take place that are not Biblical are not from God. No matter how it may look like God; if it contradicts his written word the Bible we can be sure it is not God.

The Bible is our Canon.

Or so-called messages from God to an unsaved person which message is in total contradiction to the written word of God? Or one declaring that the NDE’s are the absolute proof that all we need is “love”. That NDE’S prove that no matter what one does, or thinks, it is alright with God.

None of this is from God. NDE”S prove nothing. Nowhere in the Bible does it say we are to depend on anything but what God said in his recorded word. In fact it curses anyone who says otherwise.

God will never contradict his own written word the holy Bible. Leave the Bible and you are wide open to demonic attack.

In Matthew 24…Jesus said “take heed that no man deceive you for many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall deceive many. Great sings and wonders will be shown to deceive. It is happening as never before.

Does God really love us unconditionally? If he did there would have been no need for the Cross where Jesus shed his blood to save us from our sins.

Jesus is the condition that must be met for God to have anything to do with us. Repentance is a must; a command from God. Read what Peter said to those on the day of Pentecost: Repent and be baptized.  Read what Paul told the Philippian jailer: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. And what Philip told the Ethiopian eunuch: If you believe and then he baptized him. People need to be saved from their sins.

Sin will never enter heaven. It is a holy place and will not tolerate anything that is unclean. God does not tell every sinner who dies that he is loved unconditionally. In other words no repentance is needed is the message many say Jesus told them to bring back after they left here for while.

What is happening when a woman “reports” that she met Jesus and he had sex with her to fulfill all her fantasies? If she had all her fantasies fulfilled it was Satan who accommodated her not Jesus Christ.

Don’t they know that Satan is the prince of the air? The air is infested with demonic beings (fallen angels) who are quite capable of transforming themselves into angels of light.

Feelings are relied on to determine the mind of God by many. If it feels good it must be God. But feelings are not what we can depend on.

This is why God gave Israel the Law at Sinai. So they will know that EVEN if it does feel good; if God says it is sin it is sin.

Paul even went so far as to say that even if an angel from heaven comes and preaches any other gospel than the one the apostles preached let him be accursed. (See Galatians 1:8)

It is what God said not what we think or feel


Reprobate Mind

The Ten Commandments, In SVG

Image via Wikipedia

  Perverse disputing s of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. but godliness with contentment is great gain.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. (1 Timothy 6:5)

We are to flee from all the deadly things Paul mentioned here.

Why do we not flee; if we do not flee? It is the refusal to submit to God.

Rebellion against authority. Which finally results in the reprobate mind. Tell God no and be left to yourself to believe a lie. The Bible commands do not do this, and do not do that. Do not think this, and do not think that.  Don’t go here, and don’t go there.

Of course these impossible commands can only be done in Christ. He is really the one living holy  through the Christian. The Christian is dead to self. Christ lives in him the new life: the life that leads to heaven.

Not obeying God’s commandments will take the rebel into the outer darkness. God will not compromise with evil. It is his way or the dark way. To go where he forbids is to go astray. To go astray means one has lost the way. To be lost is to walk in darkness. We are not made to see in the dark. We need light.

Not Edison’s invention is our help; but Jesus is the only light of the world.

There is no sun or lamps or flashlights after death. It is a place of darkness. And Jesus said he is the Light of the world the only Light there is.

But the reprobate mind cannot distinguish between right and wrong. It cannot tell the difference between light and darkness. It sees no difference between good and evil. Even though the eye is still bright; the mind is corrupt. Angels of light (demons in disguise) are called angels of light because that is how they appear. Inwardly there is darkness.

Someone can say “I see nothing wrong with that.” when asked their opinion about anything the Bible clearly labels sin.

Opinion is what is it all about. “What do you think?” is the question. The answer is “I see nothing wrong with that.” “It is normal to do such things.” “It is natural for me to do what I do, or else why would I want to do this?” “I’m tired of religious losers dictating to me how I should think and live.” Isn’t the mess we are in now enough proof that Christianity doesn’t work?”

“The Bible? That is an outdated old book that has over-extended its welcome. People need to follow their heart. People need to think for themselves. Believing the Bible is the very reason the world is in the condition it is in. Every war in history can be traced to religious fanatics. It is time we just be human and do what we think it best for the world. The future of our children is at stake. Are we going to allow another millennium of madness to prevail? Madness that was caused by religion. Down with religion and down with the morons who promote this nonsense. Let us rise and take the world for progress. Success is what we need not hymn books.  In with Darwin out with Christ!”

Not realizing that the horrible mess the world is in is precisely because of disobedience to the laws of God.

Can feelings be trusted? How many lives are destroyed because of feelings? Shall we trust ideas? How many lives  ruined because of ideas? Even some inventions proved disastrous. I assume the reader has knowledge of what has and what is going on in the world.

A husband and father utterly destroys his home and family all because of his feelings for a woman who attracted him one day. His idea that he will find happiness  with her is a trap that will lead him to pain and loss. His invention of the plan to make it work somehow without he being detected will backfire and kill him.

The bank clerk erroneously thinks he will get away with his embezzlement. All this tragedy is the result of wrong thinking. Bad ides. Crazy inventions. The murderer tries to hide his victim’s body erroneously thinking he was not seen. And really no one did see him. Only God. God who commanded him You shall do no murder.

Many bash and criticize Christianity. They blame all the world’s ills on the belief in Jesus.

But what would this world be like of everyone did what Jesus Christ taught? It would be a paradise of love for one’s neighbor whoever he may be.

What would the world be like; if since Moses; everyone had obeyed what God said to Israel back then?

God turns everyone over to a reprobate mind if they do not want to retain him in their knowledge.

One of two minds we could possess: the mind of Christ or a reprobate mind. There is a clear difference between the mind of Christ and the human mind.

Except those who possess a reprobate mind do not know it. To be blind and deaf is a tragedy. But to be blind and deaf and not know it is a greater one.

(It is not normal to be blind and deaf even though some are.  Helen Keller in spite of her disability managed with the help of her teacher to go through life with some degree of happiness as she struggled to find the way in her darkness.)

But to see and hear clearly, to think holy is the original plan of God as in Eden before the disobedience.”


Evolution and Rich Preachers in the Struggle for Existence

Photograph of (left to right): Michael Faraday...

Image via Wikipedia

In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment. (Charles Darwin)

I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars. (Charles Darwin)

In the struggle for survival it is the (I say so-called) fittest (rich preachers) what win out. And they do it (Use offerings to enrich themselves) at the expense of their rivals. (Those opposing their greed) simply because they can. The laws of evolution demand that they do, so they do it at the expense of those who cannot and will not.

These rich preachers succeed in their environment because they use and spend all those multi-millions of dollars in offerings sent to them to buy themselves million dollar homes, expensive jewelry and designer clothes, cars, jets,etc.

They know exactly what to do to survive because they were naturally selected by evolution. Evolution being themselves evolving without God. They say God gave them riches. But the Bible says they helped themselves to it.

They are one of the signs of the end times. These  greedy blind boastful self-absorbed narcissistic puppets of the devil who sit in their jacuzzi s and drive around in their Mercedes Benz es  while millions are dying in poverty and disease are found in Matthew 24 among the wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes in divers places, famines and pestilences, false prophets who will show great signs and wonders to deceive IF POSSIBLE the very elect.

If Christ be in a person the person is dead to self. Self must die to be a follower of Jesus. There is no other way.

Man without God is evolution.

I cannot deny what is clear to me. But I cannot deny that the holy Bible explains what is happening and why some do “better” than others. But this is why the Lord came to Bethlehem: to stop the law of evolution; it is called redemption.

Evolution is sin plain and simple. It is the (d)evil that is in the universe. It is the iniquity in man and nature that Christ came to destroy.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

Some call it evolution but God calls it sin in the world. It is the stronger controlling the weak  Because they can. Some call it social Darwinism but God calls it sin.

From the beginning the devil has sinned. The dysfunction in the world, the evil in nature, the hate for others that permeates the souls of many is the evolution of a sinful fallen world. A world that is now so on the brink of disaster only the coming of Jesus can keep the human race from total extinction. Extinction brought on by destruction; which destruction is found in the evil nature of the human race.

Christ like us came also from the earth: he was born of a woman under the law; But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (Galatians 4:4) to redeem the sinful evolving world. The world that is evolving in sin and iniquity.

As said of Jesus : as Christ he had no mother. As man he had no father. He did not evolve, but came forth from God the Father. He was qualified to die in our stead.

I agree with Darwin that a beneficent and omnipotent God would not have designedly created parasites (greedy preachers) with the express intention of feeding within the living bodies of the caterpillars (offering donors).

The evolution in them does it: it is a law. The law the Bible calls sin. Paul the apostle said this about it:

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. (Romans 7:23)

Sin is what evolution is. Evolution is what sin is.

To be in Christ results in the following:

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:2)

Man has worked his way to the headship of the sentient world and has become the dominant animal that he is, by virtue of his success in the struggle for existence; and, in this struggle- as among other animals – it is self-assertion, the unscrupulous seizing upon all that can be grasped, the tenacious holding of all that can be kept, that have mattered. (Thomas Huxley)

These rich preachers work their way to evolve to be bigger and better and richer. They do it because it is in their sinful nature to do it: it is evolution in full force. Like a lion running after an antelope. He overtakes it to eat it alive.

So goes the law of sin in the rich greedy preachers whose end is destruction; and the fiery hell that awaits all lovers of themselves and not lovers of God.

Make no mistake It is not the Christ who is leading these whited sepulchers filled with head men’s bones..

Because of these rich greedy preachers many people do not want anything to do with God.

Without Christ man evolves. He is “fittest” if he is able at any cost to rise above the weaker. He does this through his flesh the very thing Christ said must DIE in order for any to follow him.

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)

Christ came to stop the evolution of self;  so we will die to self and follow Him.

Atheist and Theist Remember Goo

The Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) is the wild ancesto...

Image via Wikipedia

Theist: Hi Atheist glad you could stop by. I wanted to ask you about Goo’s execution. Did you witness it? I heard he was screaming revenge to the end…the slimy little weasel. I could not stand that little liar. By the way Goo said this photo was taken of him when he evolved into a boar.

Atheist:  Yes that looks just like Goo. No I didn’t attend the execution but I heard all about it. It was not a pretty sight of course and Yeah he died a screaming angry coward. I think he could have least maintained his evolution view to the end without behaving like a loser. I will miss him.

Theist: I was told he vowed vengeance and uttered curses to his accusers. Kinda dumb to make threats you cannot carry out. He died as he lived a liar and a loser. His tales of Darwin were pretty far-fetched. I mean most folks know that Darwin was in some way demented to think man evolved from animals. Goo was always saying that evolution explains criminals. He should know since he was himself a criminal.

Atheist: I disagree. Goo was a devoted evolutionist to the end. He held fast to his beliefs that we indeed evolved from apes. He should have known; he was there. He was the ape, the kangaroo, the reptile, the tortoise, the lion, the tiger, the elephant, the baboon, the horse, the cow, the pig, the chicken, the egg, the shark, the gorilla, the whale the robin, the wild boar, the eag…

Theist: Yes I get the picture he was goo to you.

Atheist: He was goo to me and you. He was a sticky little gooey guy who washed up on that distant shore he called home to begin to evolve into everything that exists. To me, even though he is dead murdered by insane creationists, he will always be my hero.

Atheist lefts his glass in a toast to Goo. Theist rolls eyes..

Theist: Did Goo have any relatives? Were there any survivors? Was he married and did he have children?

Atheist: Funny you should ask because he always wanted to evolve into a human being. But he basically remained goo as he evolved into all that lives in the world.

Theist: How could he remain goo while evolving into all living creatures including human beings? Of course I believe none of this but still like to be entertained with the strangeness of it.

Atheist: Goo knew he had an important mission when he exploded out of the big bang billions of years ago. He landed on that distant shore right smack into the middle of the ocean. He often would reminisce about his adventures underwater. I remember he saying that the creatures who lived on the ocean floor had no eyes. Makes sense since why have eyes when you live in darkness. Goo was a genius. But when he lived int he sea, It seems he was the only goo there so it had to be him to flop out onto the shore that fateful day trillions of millenniums ago..

Theist: Look I know you liked Goo and admired his life. But let’s just call this what it is: Sentimental hogwash. Goo is dead and the world is better for it. The world can now move on without Goo’s lies and deceptions. His lies that there were  transitional fossils has been thoroughly refuted by science. His tall tale of his trials of sorts through the Cambrian and Precambrian period. I remember he saying that the Ice Age was his greatest adventure when he evolved into a penguin and other cool creatures..using his words. His lies of hiding in Darwin’s pocket while Darwin was studying his finds at Galapagos is unbelievable. His claim that the giant tortoises knew him on a first name basis. It is amazing that you could find this deceiver believable. Did you know that no one claimed his remains for burial? I was told his remains were cast into a deep slimy pit and covered up with weeds.

Atheist: Not true. His remains were burned and placed in an urn. They are now in the Smithsonian.

Theist: I guess I need to look that up.

Atheist: Look it up under science.

Theist: I think I will try fun and games in archaeology.

TBN Needs To Get Saved (Part 2)

The foundation of Christ 1 Corinthians 3:11; p...

Image via Wikipedia

 “…Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory… ( 1 Corinthians 2: 6-8)

Who crucified Jesus of Nazareth? Demons did. Paul tells us in this passage exactly who crucified him. Back then the Romans used this horrible method to execute criminals. I don’t want to think about nails being pounded into innocent healing hands. Neither do you. But there were Roman soldiers who without a second thought brutally without mercy pounded nails into Jesus’ hands. After they committed this evil deed, they gambled for his clothes.

There they were as he was suffering unbelievable excruciating pain; casting lots to see who got to steal his robe that was woven without seam. They didn’t want to divide it into parts because of the way it was made.

Jesus wore a robe that didn’t fly open to reveal his body in any way I am sure. He was covered from his neck to his feet with the robe woven without seam. Maybe the Roman soldiers had never seen this before; a robe that didn’t reveal the body in any way.

The Jews did not stone Jesus to death. No they somehow got the Romans to murder him by crucifixion. This is what they wanted: to kill Jesus. To silence him. They wanted to stop his condemnation of their wicked ways. They saw him as a great threat to their wicked way of life. Pilate the governor after examining him said he found no fault in Jesus. Yet told them to crucify him anyway. What kind of person tells a mob of crazed hate-filled people to kill an innocent man? Hate-filled people is what kind.

They did not in any way see who Jesus was: the King of glory.

The above passage tells us what happened that day. The “princes of the world” murdered Jesus. Paul says that IF the demons (the evil princes who rule the world) had known who Jesus was they would not have crucified him. Paul knew well who Jesus was. He not only met him on the Damascus road, but he talked with the men who had walked and talked with him for over three years or so.  And thereafter Saul of Tarsus lived a life that reflected his knowledge of who Jesus Christ was.  Saul the murderer so repented of his sins; and  the sin of murdering followers of Jesus that he thereafter went by the name of Paul. Maybe he could not bear to be Saul the murderer anymore so he even changed his name to Paul to get away from what he was: the man who killed the believers in the Lord of glory: Jesus Christ.

Paul understood it by revelation and explained in his letters to the churches the profound seriousness of what had taken place at Golgotha. He said that Jesus was the sacrifice for sins; he was the slaughtered offering.

If the demons had known he would rise from the dead, thereby purchasing our salvation by offering his body in the brazen altar to be slaughtered, they would not have killed him. They mocked him as he hung dying in profound agony. They laughed and spit on his face before they did this evil.

How mean and hateful does one have to be to do what they did to Jesus?

He died according to the scriptures. God knew when he sent his Son they would kill him. God knew they would utterly reject his love. They would not understand it. A few did: and this few was a part of the remnant of Israel.

Jesus was murdered by the system. He died at the hands of wicked men. He did not go to Israel with a big smile to announce he came to die for sinners. That is not what happened. He was innocent. He was a wonderful man. He was kind and good. He fed their hungry and healed the sick. He even raised dead people back to life. But they did not see who he was. It is a sad story the story of Jesus: that they did this to an innocent man is horrendous.

Who actually killed him? Paul the apostle tells us who did in the above passage. The princes of this world did it. Devils from hell did it using the hands of wicked men. Who in his right mind would execute an innocent man? Who would kill a man who healed their sick  and diseased? Who? If you knew a man who made food appear out of nowhere; a man who raised your friend’s twelve-year old daughter from the dead; would you kill him?

A man who went about doing good as the scripture says.

It has happened in history that innocent people have been executed by the system. They died because the evidence against them was no evidence. The mob mentality minded ignorant are the ones who kill innocent people.

This was done to the Lord of glory: Jesus Christ.

He really was born in Bethlehem. He really grew to be a man. He did nothing worthy of death. Yet they hated him so much; their hatred of him was so intense that they killed him.

And TBN uses this tragedy every day to make money. Truly sad that TBN repeats over and over and over and over what the princes of this world (demons) did to Jesus Christ.

But the good news is Jesus is risen from the dead. And because he lives we shall live also if we believe in him.




Jesus Did It For Her and Her Son for His Glory

Nain

Image by See The Holy Land via Flickr

Luke 7:11-16 (King James Version)

11And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

 12Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

 13And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

 14And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

 15And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

 16And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

No one asked the LORD to do this.

The woman in this story was a widow; the dead man was her only son.

1. The Lord saw her.

2. The Lord had compassion on her.

3. And The Lord said to her   “Weep not.”

Jesus touches the bier that holds the dead man and tells him to arise.

The dead man arises back to life.. he rose and spoke. Then Jesus delivered him to his mother.

Jesus did all this without anyone asking him to do this. I hear some say God only responds to faith. Not true. God is Sovereign and can do whatever he wants. God is not on his Throne waiting to respond to anything. Though He does honor faith. But Jesus fed the hungry on his own. He raised Lazarus from the dead without being asked. He fed the hungry because “he was moved with compassion”

He can do and will do whatever he wants. He is Sovereign.

Did Adam and Eve ask to be redeemed? No; they were hiding. He promised them Messiah without being asked.

What a rejoicing the widow and her son had after that. He turned a funeral into a party. Sorrow into joy! Despair into gladness.


He is a loving and  thoughtful and healing and giving wonderful GOD!

Goo’s Execution

The hanging of two participants in the Indian ...

Image via Wikipedia

It happened that Goo (from a far distant shore that appeared from nothing out of the so-called Big Bang) was found guilty of lying to the world.

His false claim that the human race descended from him has been thoroughly refuted by science.

The judge sentenced him to death by hanging.

The following is a report of what happened at the execution:

Only a few people were present to witness Goo breathe his last. It is reported he chose as his last meal a hot roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and green beans. And a large slice of Red Velvet cake for dessert. He swallowed down a large beer, smiled and belched before in death he closed his lying eyes.

After Goo is finished eating and drinking and belching, he is dragged to the gallows. Screaming and resisting with all his gooey might, he vows revenge on his killers. “I will come back I swear I will rise from the dead and kill you hypocrites!

Finally subdued he offers no more resistance knowing his fate is sealed. He trembles with fear as he catches his first look at the hanging place called the gallows.

Prison warden: Goo do you have any final words before we hang you by your lying scrawny little neck?

Goo: Not really. All I had to say I said on the witness stand. I stand by what I said that it was from me that the human race descended. Man came from apes! I know that is hard to accept. But it is true. Man is an animal! As I said; it all began on a far off distant shore after I met dear kind Mr Darwin. I slid out of the the sea and…

Prison warden: Place the noose around Goo’s lying bony dirty smelly godless neck Mr Executioner.

The executioner comes  forward with a black hood over this head. Only his eyes are visible. He glares at Goo. He places the noose around Goo’s neck. He secures it as if it will somehow fall off as Goo begins again to resist..

Goo reaches  up to feel the noose. He winces… then immediately composes himself.

Goo: I hate you all! I hate you all! May I die rather than deny that man evolved from goo to reptile to monkey to grunting, smelly, disgusting sex-crazed, wild beas…

CLUNK! The foundation beneath Goo’s feet disappears. It drops like a pebble into the abyss never to be seen again. Goo flops like a rag doll as the noose does its work of strangling the last lying breath out of him. After Goo’s dead lying body dangles for a few minutes, the executioner removes Goo’s lying neck from the noose. He places his corpse on the waiting gurney.

He is pronounced soooo…dead by a archaeologist doctor. A great cheer erupts from the crowd of creationists. Not a tear not a sigh when lying Goo died.

Goo died as he lived;  a liar.

He is taken down and buried in a grave marked

Here lies a liar and a fool” Goo the decieved.

Transported by God

Some years ago I was driving along, going about forty-five miles an hour seeing  a green light up ahead. But right when I reached the intersection to go through it I saw a car coming from my right. The driver of the car ran the  red light and there was no way for us to avoid a collision. I remember thinking This is it! But the next thing I knew I was far away from the intersection going up the hill that leads to my house.

I remember clearly my eye-blink because my eyes were open seeing the car about to hit me. When one blinks; the eyelid touches the bottom of the eye for a split-split second before opening again. So when I came to I noticed my eye-blink was unchanged. I just knew it. As if no time had passed since I was entering the intersection about to get hit by another car.  I say “came to” because I seemed to be non-existent, or asleep when God moved me and my car.

I knew what happened of course. God had transported me and my car out of harm’s way. Or maybe it was out of death’s way. It was an exciting experience; one I will never forget.

My experience is not unusual it has happened to others. Two Christians said that God had transported them from one town to the next. They did not have to drive there they suddenly found themselves there.

God can do anything! I have seen him do many miracles not only in my life but in others’ lives.

I have often wondered what the driver of the other car saw when this happened. I have no idea.

What a God!!!

Attorney Evolutionist Court (2)

The Honorable Judge Honest Harry Jones now presiding. All rise! All be seated!

Attorney Evolutionist: Father Time would you give the court your age please.

Father Time: I am timeless. I am the Time-god. The idol of the Darwin crowd. Without me they have nothing.

Infidel jumps up from his chair angrily screaming “Whose side are you on Pops?”

Judge: Infidel one more outburst and I will hold you in contempt! Proceed Counsellor Evolutionist.

Attorney Christian: I object your Honor! So far all we have heard here is fantasy and fairy tales. Lies! Father Time is the biggest liar this side of Uranus.

Judge: May I remind you Counsellor Christian that this is my courtroom not yours? I will decide after hearing all the evidence what is true and what is false. Be advised the guilty party who came into the courtroom without evidence will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I will sentence him to life in prison with no possibility of parole. Continue Counselor Evolutionist. Without empirical evidence they have nothing. So far they have no evidence.

Attorney Evolutionist: Father Time when was it you realized that you were able to create universes and other fun stuff?

Father Time: When I met Charles Darwin for the first time in jolly old England. We traveled on the tiny Beagle together for five years finally ending up at Galapagos. It was there he found me of great use and the rest is history.

Attorney Christian: I object! This is the biggest piece of fiction ever dreamed up by the enemies of truth. It is true he sailed with Darwin on the famed Beagle. But the facts is this is a lie! He has no power to create. All he can do is move forward. God created him and one day he will be no more even as the angel says in the Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter ten verse six.

Judge: Objection sustained..

Attorney Evolutionist: Let me rephrase that..what exactly happened at Galapagos?

Father-Time: It was the beaks of the finches that made Darwin understand the hidden secret of the ages. Evolution is taking place.

Attorney Christian: I object! The Time-god is capable of doing nothing but moving forward. Not giving evidence of Finches! I have plenty to say about that. Present empirical evidence! Talk is talk but where is the evidence? I think it was not the finches but the natives of another place that made him believe that the Bible cannot be true.

Judge: Objection overruled. Go on Counsellor Evolutionist.

Attorney Evolutionist: Why do you believe evolution is taking place?

Father-Time: Because I am the one that makes it happen.

Attorney Evolutionist: I have no further questions for this witness.

Judge: Attorney Christian: You may now cross-examine the witness.

Attorney Christian: Father-Time: Isn’t it true that you are capable of doing nothing but moving forward? And isn’t it true that you had a beginning? Which in fact was only  a few thousand years ago?

Father-Time: That is not what Darwin told me. He believed in me. He said that it was because of me that evolution takes place.

Attorney Christian: It is true that you had a beginning. You were created in Genesis 1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. In that passage there you Time.. are “the beginning”That is your real name. You do not have any magical powers to create. In fact you have never stood still. You have never rewound. Moving forward is what you do.

Attorney Evolutionist: I object!

Judge: Objection overruled.

Attorney Christian: On Galapagos what exactly did you do there?

Father-Time: I simply was used of Darwin to make things change into other stuff. I did nothing wrong.

Attorney Christian: Nothing wrong huh? I would not call saying you changed goo into a rhinoceros is not doing anything wrong.

Father-Time: I only wanted to help. I was a victim of evolution. They used me and exploited me for their own greedy gain.

(Time-god is getting very nervous)

Attorney Evolutionist: I object to this ridiculous testimony. Your Honor it is apparent the witness is losing it.

Attorney Christian: So now the truth comes out. Time-god when they used you for dishonest reasons how did that make you feel?

Time-god: It made me feel used. Darwin used me and so did the goo.

To be continued…

(Editor’s note: I laugh when I write my evolution blogs. I have fun fun fun. I mean no offense to anyone.)

Attorney Evolutionist Goes To Court

Piltdown Man

Image by jovike via Flickr

The courtroom is packed with reporters. With pens ready they wait to hear Attorney Evolutionist’s defense of his client.

All rise! The Honorable Judge Honest Harry Jones presiding. Judge seats himself. All may be seated! The judge sits back in his chair:

Judge: Attorney Evolutionist you may begin.

Attorney Evolutionist: I will prove to this court of law that my client Unbeliever is innocent of the charges brought against him by Believer. I will prove beyond any shadow of doubt to this honorable court that evolution is indeed taking place beginning over 1000,000,000,000 billion years ago. Give or take another hundred billion.

Attorney Christian: I object your Honor. My opponent has not a shred of evidence to defend his client. In fact this court will find before the trial is over that evolution is nothing but a big hoax perpetrated on the Bible ignorant.

Judge: Objection overruled. You may proceed.

Attorney Evolutionist: Yes your Honor. I call my first witness Pilt down Man.

Piltdown Man takes the stand. He is sworn in. He lies under oath.

Attorney Evolutionist: Pilt Down Man isn’t it true that you are a transitional fossil?

Attorney Christian: I object to this fairy tale to be presented in a court of law. It is documented that “Pilt down Man (Eoanthropus Dawsoni) was once thought to be a “missing link” between man and ape. The first Piltdown fragments were discovered in 1912. Thereafter, over 500 scientific essays were written on the Piltdown Man in a 40-year period. The discovery was proven to be a deliberate hoax in 1953.

Attorney Evolutionist: Piltdown man is this true?

Piltdown Man: No it is not true! I am a transitional fossil that proves the link between man and beast. I was discovered…

Judge: I want this lying witness arrested. Piltdown man this court holds you in contempt for deliberately lying to this court. May I remind Attorney Evolutionist that this court seeks only evidence. Facts backed up by science.

Attorney Evolutionist: I call my second witness Infidel the esteemed scientist. He was educated at the finest universities. He holds three degrees. Paleontology anthropology and biology. He has written numerous books on evolution….all best sellers. Books that now are in universities and schools across the nation. Our children must learn the truth of our origins that we all came from monkeys. They must be educated in the teachings of Charles Darwin. They must learn that the only god is Time.

Judge: May I remind you Counselor Evolutionist that this court is interested in evidence. I am not interested in hearing of this man’s numberless degrees. Or how many books he wrote. There are books of fiction. Books are not evidence unless there are witnesses. I must see evidence. I want eyewitnesses. Documents and written and signed affidavits. I want tangible physical evidence that can be verified by science.

Attorney Christian: Your Honor if I may say something.

Judge: You may.

Attorney Christian: Infidel has no evidence. He presents as evidence the strange tale of smelly hairy disgusting sex-crazed beasts he claims stomped through earth an unbelievable amount of millenniums ago. He just keeps saying it just happened. He has no documents to prove anything he says. He has his word which, no offense to him, his word is just not good enough.

Judge: Exactly. I want evidence. I want empirical evidence. As Richard Dawkins the famous atheist says `the world has no shortage of liars.`

(Judge looks at Attorney Evolutionist than glares at Unbeliever and Infidel)

Judge: Counselor why are you in my courtroom without evidence?

Attorney Evolutionist: Your Honor may I call my witness to the stand?

Judge: By all means. This is why we are here to see and hear evidence.

Infidel hurries to witness stand. He is sworn in with his right hand on the Bible.

Attorney Evolutionist: Infidel isn’t it true that you know exactly what happened 1000, 000,000 billion millenniums ago?

Infidel: I do.

Attorney Christian: I object! Was he there? Did he see? Did he hear? Did he feel? Where are the documents from witnesses?

Judge: Objection overruled!

Attorney Evolutionist: Please tell the court what happened 1000,000,000 billion years ago.

Infidel: For no apparent reason there was suddenly a Big Bang. It shook the nothingness of nothingness. It shot out for eons of time exploding into chemicals and atoms. It shot even further out and suddenly for no reason there were amino acids and other interesting stuff.

Attorney Evolutionist: then what happened?

Infidel: The universe came into existence. Suns appeared and also moons. Stars began to shine..this strange happening took 900,000,000,000,000,000,000 billion zillion years.

Attorney Christian: I object! Your Honor without evidence he has nothing. I am not interested in hearsay. Where is the evidence? His so called testimony is a fairy tale if I ever heard one.

Judge: Present evidence or this court will hold you in contempt. May I remind you that Pilt down man is just an example of what happens to liars and hoaxes.

Attorney Evolutionist: Go on Infidel and present your evidence.

Infidel: Well I wasn’t there but I just know that is what happened.

Attorney Christian: I object to this fairytale presented as facts.

Judge: Objection overruled.

Attorney Evolutionist: Go on please.

Infidel: Than there were unbelievable loud ear-splitting eye-bulging sound barrier-breaking explosions in deep space. Black holes appeared which immediately swallowed up a few spiral galaxies. No big deal because the universe kept producing other interesting stuff. Like novas. Oh yeah.. and stars so numberless they  could never be named. Mysterious phenomenon. Numberless galaxies appeared for no apparent reason. Then far away on a single planet there was goo sliding and slipping on a distant shore. It was the beginning of life here on earth.

Attorney Christian: I object your Honor. I have never heard such gobbledygook nonsense in my entire life! And by the way the Bible says that God calls every star by name. I have never heard such heretic hogwash!

Judge: Me neither! But go on Infidel..

Attorney Evolutionist: May I remind this court that my illustrious witness is the holder of several degrees. He is well-respected in science. He attended a prestigious university of higher learning. He gives seminars across the land. Not to mention he is known in the circles of evolution as their most respected and knowledgeable scientist.

Judge: Well I would hate to hear him as a witness without he having not gone to school. You may proceed.

Judge yawns.

Infidel: The goo was slimy and sticky. It was green. It remained goo for over 100 billion millenniums. Then for no apparent reason it begin to change its form and soon it had an eye. One bulging eye appeared so the goo could see.

Attorney Evolutionist: What did the goo see?

Infidel: It is assumed that the goo saw nothing yet.

Attorney Christian: I object to this make-believe story. It is outrageous that this is even happening in a court of law.

Judge: Objection overruled.

Attorney Evolutionist: You may step down for now. Your Honor may I call to the stand Father Time?

Attorney Christian: I object again Your Honor. This is outrageous! To think that Infidel knows what happened at a so-called time that only exists in his imagination is hardly evidence for science. Now he is going to question the time-god. I object to this travesty of truth!

Judge: Objection overruled!

Father Time takes the stand after being sworn in.

Attorney Evolutionist: Please tell the court your full name please.

Father Time: Father Time also known as Time-god.

To be continued…

Hell and How Not To Get There

When God said he is a jealous God he didn’t mean he is weeping tears like an offended weak lover. I have read some say that God is weeping over America. I think not. Never in the Bible does the Lord weep over anything. Or anyone. Except once when He wept over Jerusalem when he saw their destruction coming. He tolerates no worship of anything only of himself.

In 70 AD just as Jesus said Jerusalem was laid waste. Their temple destroyed and a multitude of Jews died. Those who managed to escape were scattered among the nations to wander a suffering rejected people even as God said would happen to them for all their sins.

I understand God to be a consuming fire. A God that without mercy can decimate a nation in an instant like he did to Nineveh. They did repent at Jonah’s preaching. But seventy years later he did destroy them. I see God as one who does not, will not tolerate disobedience. He is God and does not appreciate anyone or anything trying to exalt themselves when he is the only exalted one.

I got a clear clue of the nature of God when he cast from heaven a beautiful angel who said I will be like the Most High. God told him You will be brought down to the sides of the pit. No mercy no chance no constitutional rights no nothing. Angel becomes the devil..forever.  End of story.

God did not redeem that disobedient angel. The Canaanites had over 400 years to repent. they did not and he utterly destroyed them. One man reached out to keep the ark of the covenant from tipping and God struck him dead. Ananias and Sapphira were stuck dead  for lying to the Holy Spirit. Herod was struck dead for not giving God glory and the worms ate him up. Then the next verse says But the word of God grew and multiplied.

We humans have a chance and only because of Christ. Without Christ it is hell. God will do it. There are some people who are actually (scary) going to hear Jesus say to them, Depart from me I never knew you. They will have to depart. Depart to where? To where the worm dies not and the fire is not quenched. To the outer darkness.

Read about him through the Bible beginning at Genesis to Malachi. He is there and then he is not there. As you study God and his dealings with Israel.  He is doing great miracles. Then things change and he is not doing it as before.  Things dramatically change. Israel bows down to every false god and commits harlotry under every green tree.

God got tired of it. Next scene: Israel is  punished rebuked and scattered among the nations. And the Old Testament ends with God saying… Lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

How much proof do humans need that God does not like disobedience. If one sins they are his enemy make no mistake. How do you feel when your child disobeys you? Say they did continually while making fun of you. You would not look at their disobedience and mockery and say how cute they are. Nor would you weep over them. You will set them in order or you are not a fit parent. How much more God?

Yet this is what many do to God today. Mock him not realizing he is giving them time to repent. He said his Spirit will not always strive with man. And he prefers mercy to judgment.

God is love. However what many do not realize is this: he is also a God of judgment. God cuts no slack to anyone who mocks him. His only remedy is Christ. Reject His Son and you are done.

I read a  true story of a man whose young daughter died. The father got angry at God. He left church one day a bitter and angry man. As he passed close to a tree lightning struck the tree.  The angry father of the dead child screamed up at God.. Do it again God!!!

The years moved forward until thirty years to the day had passed since God  struck that tree with lightning. .It so happened that this man was passing that same tree by that church one day. Suddenly out of the sky came lightning and struck it again. God did not apologize to the man. But the man finally surrendered to God.

It is best to surrender and go along peacefully One preacher said that God does not negotiate with us because we have nothing to negotiate with.  We have nothing to bring to the table.

Humble yourselves and repent. Be sorry for your sins and get Jesus in you. Then when he sees the Blood he will do for you as he did for ancient Israel when the death angel passed through Egypt killing all the firstborn..he will Pass over you.

Apply the Blood of Jesus to the doorpost of your heart and soul to your life and be saved from what is coming on the earth.

The Great Whore The RCC

An 1800s Russian engraving depicting the Whore...

Image via Wikipedia

1 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. 2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”

3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery:

BABYLON THE GREAT

THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES

AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.

When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. 7 Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.

9 “This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10 They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while. 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.” revelation of Jesus Christ)

I love to surf different blogs on the Internet reading their interpretations of Bible prophecy. I love to study myself. I cannot get enough of studying the bible and history. It is the best way to spend a life.  And think hmmm..who could this prophecy be and what could this one mean?

But I laughed hard. Not at what is written by anyone. I enjoy reading blogs. Thank God for the Internet and all these Christians who study Bible prophecy..

But I laughed thinking what must God think when he sees one blogger blog; “I know for sure that Obama is the Antichrist.” another writing “The antichrist is definitely George W. Bush.” Or another’s blog in bright colors and stark graphics;  “There is no doubt in my mind that Pope Benedict is the Antichrist.” I even heard that it is prince William of England. Lots of speculation out there.

Well In this chapter in the Bible I not only believe, but I am certain the Great Whore is the Roman Catholic Church. The harlots are all the Protestant churches who are all daughters of this Great Whore.

This is easily evidenced by looking in any phone book. Hundreds of churches and none agree with the other. So I know God isn’t doing this, so that only leaves these protestant churches doing this.

Roman church is the Great Whore who sits on 7 hills (Rome). History records the RCC gave birth to all the Protestant churches beginning with Luther when he left the RCC.

I believe the 7 heads are; 5 Fallen are;

1. Egypt 2. Assyria 3. Babylon 4. Persia 5. Greece

The one that IS; Rome (this is when John was on Patmos and saw his visions)

One is to come which is England.

Then the eighth is America  (Rome revived) whose deadly wound was healed; who is of the 7. ( I understand `of the 7` is America which came out of England)

Who else could they be? It has to them. These are the only nations who wielded power.

The woman who rides the beast is that great city.

So it has to be the Vatican (ROME).

Destruction of America

Statue of Liberty unveiled, by Edward Moran

Image via Wikipedia

If one Googles the destruction of America he will bring up many hits.  A A Allen’s vision plus many others claiming visions and dreams from God that  America’s days are numbered.

Reverend Allen who died in 1970 said he saw a giant hand reach down from the sky. He said this hand forced the Statue of liberty to drink a cup of poison. He said the Statue of liberty said No I will not drink it. God then said to it, “You shall certainly drink it.”  God forced the cup to its mouth and made it drink to the last drop. It staggered then fell.

Next thing you know the Statue of Liberty is lying face down in the Gulf Coast done to the death.

This is upsetting. I do mean horribly upsetting.

Good news is the Lord never ever destroys the righteous with the wicked. This is clear in the Bible.

David Wilkerson has a book out Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth with a scary message of America’s destruction. He says none but a few will escape. You Tube has videos of those who had dreams and visions of America’s destruction. They saw missiles coming to our shores along with submarines. Nerve gas and chemical poisons to kill us all.

One minister said in his vision the enemies of America put our eyes out. What America sees with was destroyed. I have no idea how this happened that our radar system was cut down.

How absolutely horrific. Another man by the name of John Johnston claims to be having visions and dreams of total destruction of this country.

William Branham’s 1939 vision of great explosions in our nation and no sign of life.

This is horrible!

Another had a night vision of American presidents beginning at Truman  and ending at the last president which would be Obama. This man had this   vision back in the 70’s. He saw the names of the presidents up until Clinton then he saw only two presidents to go until the nation went off to judgment.

That would be Bush and Obama then no president; only a road that led to judgment.

I also had a terrible dream a few years ago from God of the dilemma this nation is in.  Bad news.  Hal Lindsey put it this way in one of his books concerning America’s problem..We are in deep poo poo.

I have family that I love. I thought to myself… there is no way God will destroy the righteous along with the blasphemers and wicked others who have no regard for God. In the Bible he always delivered his people before he laid the wicked waste for not doing what he said.

However there will be no rapture of the church. The church will see the appearance of the antichrist. I was taught the church would be gone  before all this happened. But in 1989 God said something to me that took twenty years before I understood what God meant. No rapture for escape and the antichrist will rise. The Christians will see him in power.

The Bible says the Lord will destroy the antichrist with the brightness of his coming. That every eye will see Jesus when he comes with clouds.

I have no problem believing God will destroy any nation. He has done it in the past and does it quite thoroughly when those nations are laid waste. He does it and who can stop him?

I can easily see why he would lay waste any nation for its wickedness.

Sin will be punished wherever it is found.

Yes there is a God and he has wrath. The Revelation of Jesus Christ speaks of the wrath of the lamb. Yes a lamb filled with wrath. God is not a plaything  as some think he is. He is not a figment of imagination. He will send judgment.

How do we get out of this mess is what I wondered. Literally. I had to go to the Bible to find out. Of course God can do anything. What good is this nation if most are dead and there is no food?

The only way of escape is to be transported to another place by the power of God. Or many will die and the ones left will seriously repent and live righteously waiting for the rapture. Of course they will also be suffering through the great tribulation. But then there are the Muslims who want all to become Muslims or die.

Those who say…”God is love and he won’t send people to hell or make them suffer or send horrible judgments.” Are these people blind to the horrific sufferings that took place on this planet? Can they not see the unspeakable sufferings taking place right now? I have no problem believing God sends judgment. I have no problem knowing God will destroy what opposes him.

CHRIST is the only way to be accepted by God.

The Pale Horse of Death in America

This work is linked to Revelation 6:8 "Th...

Pale Horse of Death in America…..”Mass Python Hunt After Tot Strangled By Snake

Snake experts have begun an attempt to capture an estimated 100,000 pythons said to be on the loose in Florida after a toddler was strangled to death in the state. They have been granted licenses to hunt, trap and kill the snakes by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

It is expected that the hunt will last several months, and more permits may be granted depending on its success.

The hunt was sparked following the death of a two-year-old girl who was killed in her bed by a pet python earlier this month.

The 8.5ft long snake belonged to Shaiunna Hare’s mother’s boyfriend and had escaped from its cage.

Authorities are blaming the huge number of pythons in the state on a fad to keep them as pets.

Scientists believe pet owners have freed their snakes into the wild after they became too big to keep.”

Who can deny we are in the times of the end? The pale horse of death is here. War disease famine and wild beasts are killing multitudes. Whose fault is it? Man without God.

Pythons loose in America. Lions roaming in Colorado. Though these killer lions are kept in a confined area is not proof they will stay there. All it takes is one mistake on a human’s part and a lion is loose to roam anywhere his instincts take him. And humans are famous for making mistakes. See the history of the world and I will prove my point. The pythons are doing what comes naturally; multiplying and slithering where their instinct takes them.

I’ve read reports on the news of snakes turning up in toilets in suburbia. How did they get there? Through sewers. How did they get in the sewers? The issue really is how did they get to America? By people ordering them to keep as pets.

Then when their python is too big they turn it loose in the Everglades.

To multiply and travel the land. What now? Our rivers and lakes and streams a breeding ground for wild poisonous snakes.

Why didn’t the animal activists return these wild beasts back to where God placed them? Because they think they know better than God how to care for these wild beasts.

There is no doubt we are living in the times of the pale horse of Death. When war and famine are killing people. And disease and wild beasts are ending lives. When was cancer as it is now? Heart attacks and strokes and high blood pressure is not the history of the world. But these diseases are the history of America.

I heard three Christian men all ministers of the gospel warn that we must pray for our families for God to protect them. . I daily pray for God’s protection on my family so we will escape what is not only still coming on the earth, but is already here.

I don’t expect God to protect my family if I do not obey him. He is a covenant God; I do this and he will do that. He drew up the contract I signed one day when I decided to follow him.

The days of vengeance the days of judgments of God.

Who told these people to order these wild beasts from their natural habitat in foreign lands? Who told the people filling these orders for snakes to put them in crates and send them to America? Who decided that pythons will make pets for families? Who decided that lions will fare well in Colorado instead of Africa?

I will tell you who. It wasn’t God. It was man without God.

But God still gets the blame for the foolish things men do.

God help our land and God have mercy on this nation for allowing this evil to penetrate our shores and land.

While America parties and keeps up with what celebrities are doing the enemy invades deeper and deeper into the hearts and lives of its citizens.

While America watches what Hollywood is wearing the enemy works his evil in the land. While men deny him and others accuse God still he is there with open arms to receive us if we only turn to him.

God offers no protection to those who do not obey him.

I am angry. I have children and grandchildren. Daily I pray for them that whatever the cost, whatever measure God must take that he would do his will with them. In God I trust all others are the usual suspects.

Please turn to him today in repentance and sorrow for your sins.

He will forgive and lead you aright.

1 Corinthians 13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.

Love suffers long, and is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,

Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;

Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things..

Love never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know as even as I am known.

And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
