Saved At The Last Minute

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

(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.

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.

Reverend Faith Debates Dr Hotiarre

Thank you Dr Hotiarre and Reverend Faith for agreeing to this debate. Now let us begin:

Reverend Faith: Dr Hotiarre you are a strong believer in evolution right?

Dr Hotiarre: I am.

Reverend Faith: You believe brains evolved?

Dr Hotiarre: I know they did. Billions of years ago my brain was the brain of a great silver back. I am the proud descendant of a smelly sex-crazed grunting killing ignorant disgusting beast.

Reverend Faith: So I take it that the human brain which you say evolved got its ability to think from the time-god?

Dr Hotiarre: Well not just from the time-god. But from environment also. From billions of years of trial and error. From billions of years of death and destruction. Yes man’s brain evolved. So did his capacity to think. At one time in earth’s dark mysterious history I could not think. All I could do was grunt. So you see how far we have come thanks to the time-god.

(Dr Hotiarre suddenly falls to the floor and begins to have a spasm. He jerks and salivates. He foams and grimaces. Then strangely begins to chant a eerie sounding jungle chant as he feverishly worships the time-god.) After about five minutes he appears to come back to reality. He does not apologize for his ghastly behavior, but says worshiping the time-god is part of his religion. He struggles back to his seat and composes himself without an ounce of shame or embarrassment.)

Reverend Faith: How long do these strange outbursts last when you fall to the floor to worship your time-god?

Dr Hotiarre: I never know when I will have an episode. I never can tell when I must fall to my knees with my face to the floor to worship the time-god who after billions of years changed me from a smelly sex-crazed beast into a degree laden doctor whose knowledge knows no bounds.

Reverend Faith: Do you believe that the same brain that evolved from an ape-brain to a human-brain evolved to invent and discover new drugs and medicines?

Dr Hotiarre: I do. For example when a scientist who is fully evolved from his grunting ancestors becomes a university degree holding scientist he goes to his lab to discover the cure for many diseases.

Reverend Faith: Like AIDS for example?

Dr Hotiarre: Yes science has discovered many drugs to destroy the AIDS virus. Or at least halt its destruction.

Reverend Faith: So what you say is that evolution tries to destroy itself?

Dr Hotiarre: I don’t understand.

Reverend Faith: You say that the brain evolved. You say that this same evolved brain then seeks to discover what will destroy AIDS; such as drugs. Yet it is evolution with the help of the time-god that made the brain that discovered the drugs to destroy the virus that is killing the host body. How does this make sense? You are basically saying that evolution is trying to eliminate itself. Why does evolved man try to destroy what brought it into existence in the first place to destroy its own evolving power?

Dr Hotiarre: Well as a scientist we realize that we evolved primates are one with the universe. But as we evolve into humans we understand more and more of our origins and our purpose on this particular planet. So we use our evolved brains that reason and think to destroy what tries to destroy us by disease and sickness. Hence we discover drugs that heal and halt disease.

Reverend Faith: So evolution fights itself? Why try to destroy what evolution created only to destroy and eliminate? If evolution doesn’t favor a certain one then why cumber it along?

Dr Hotiarre: As I said we are learning what we are. What the universe is. We are learning that some things are not acceptable. Disease is not acceptable.

Reverend Faith: Obviously evolution does not agree with you. Do you believe in prevention? Such as concerning the AIDS virus. Is there a reason it came into existence? Is there a certain host type it favors when it seeks to eliminate? Why does the evolved brain invent drugs to save what evolution obviously considers unfit? Evolution is all for to destroy the unfit. Explain how the same brain that evolution made seeks to invent drugs to save what evolution deems unfit to live?

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.

Agnostics Debate Apologists and Usually Win the Debate

Children in Jerusalem.

Image via Wikipedia

I listen sometimes to debates between atheists and believers. I just listened to one last night between an agnostic and a well-known apologist. I would say the agnostic won the debate simply because it was the same old thing the apologist presented. That evil exists because it is somehow good for us in some way.

Wrong.

Skeptics want answers they will never receive from their intellect. Or from anyone’s else’s. The answer to evil in the world is Christ. There is no other answer. It is okay to debate we can learn much. Of course apologists know this. But to try to explain away all the evil by saying “God gave us free will” is nonsense.

No sane parent would place two glasses before her beloved child and say to the child..”Okay here is a glass of orange juice and a glass of orange juice with rat poison. I give you free will to choose which one you want.”

We are not kinder than God and God did not do what he is accused of by many. He did not place two glasses of orange juice before the human race: one mixed with rat poison. And say Dear human race that I love…now you CHOOSE which one you want. That is evil and God did not do this.

I read where one apologist tried to justify evil’s existence in the world by citing a case of a mother whose child died. But after so-called counsel she finally realized she would have the child again just for the love the child brought her. I would not want her for a mother.

What? She would do it again if she could? No mother in her right mind would say “Yes I am grieving my child who has died. But if I could do it all over again for the love this child brought me than it was worth it.”

That would be the depths of selfishness and empty of love. No mother would “do it all again” knowing her child would die. Just so the mother could experience love it was okay for evil to exist which evil caused the child’s death? This is what the apologist was implying.

The mother in this case was thinking only of herself and not of the child who died. I wonder if she would have this attitude if it was she who died? This so-called reasoning is not from God but from Satan.

No mother would do such a thing. A decent mother would deny herself and not bring a child into the world knowing he would die so the mother could experience love.

This is why the Lord went to the cross to die to destroy the works of the devil not justify them. Evil is bad, there is no good in it; it has to go. Yes God can work all things together for our good. But he still came to destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3:8 (KJV) 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.

This God gave us free will reason is the worst of all presentations to explain why evil exists. God would never give us free will to disobey him. He commanded us to obey him.

Earthquakes happen some apologists say because of tectonic plates. Really? Skeptics want to know why the tectonic plates are even there to start with. It is not tectonic plates it is SIN that is the problem. 

Is there an elephant on the floor? With some apologists there seems to be.

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


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.
