(Washington, D.C.) — With events moving so rapidly in Israel and the Islamic world — and a serious and growing rupture between the Obama administration and the government of Israel — it is vital that we truly understand the times, and the future, from a Biblical perspective. What’s more, we need to understand what God is asking of each of us, and […]
(Washington, D.C.) — What are the implications of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision on Friday to make same-sex marriage a Constitutionally-protected civil right? Is the Court’s decision to change the definition of marriage really such a big deal, or are Christians hyperventilating over the issue for nothing? Unfortunately, yes, this is a very big deal, and it puts America on a perilous path. Unless […]
(Washington, D.C.) — Last October, President Obama gave an interesting speech in New York City. At one point in his remarks, the President said, “[T]here’s a sense…that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it.” Events are moving fast — here at home and around the globe. The world does […]
12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name (Jesus) under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”--Jesus is Salvation. Only way to heaven. . . Best decision you will ever make.
You cannot serve two masters. Christians today are trying to serve two masters. They are fence sitters. They think they can give lip service to the parts of the Bible they want to believe in, and ignore the parts that they make them feel bad. That is not how it works. We are all under His Sovereign law. God gives guidelines for a lifestyle, and a way to live that lifestyle. That way is through salvation in His only Son Jesus Christ. You are beginning to see the effects of sin in our world to a degree which has never been seen.
Everyone sins. You sin, I sin, and our sin is not better than the homosexual's. The homosexual who practices his/her sin is just as bad as a gossip practicing his/her sin. The man with greed, lust for power, or fornication is just as bad as the homosexual who practices his/her sin. Jesus loves all of us, and wants us to turn from our sin. What happened on Friday is the institutionalization of sin. Think about saying it will be promoted and legal for all people to lust for power any way they can. There would be mayhem. It is the same when we institutionalized homosexual behavior on Friday. Christians often thought being well accepted and liked was the calling. Don't go out of your way to be disliked, but being liked is not the Will of God. It is His Will for us to live out and preach the Good News, whether we are liked or not.
The world leaders are extremely worried for Monday. Greece may default, and there may be a contagion like we have never seen. It is not coincidental that as society goes against God's Word, mayhem ensues. Sin creates chaos, perverted behavior, and a lust for self and power. Homosexuality is just one sin among many in which we are institutionalizing in the world.
We will go through this together. I am called to be here sharing the Good News. Pray for one another, pray for your family, pray for your friends. It is not our will, but His Will. It is going to be ok. I have a sick feeling of what happened this week, but I also have peace knowing my God is in control. He will always be with you, even as the world darkens for the rise of Antichrist.
The Harvest is being separated as we speak. It has been happening for some time, but after the US Supreme Court ruled same sex marriage is legal in all 50 states brings us to another stage of the separation. There are many who will worship in church on Sunday that will proclaim love won today. Sin won today, no love. Love is God says the Scripture. God says marriage is between a man and woman only. When the United States goes against God's Word it puts the whole world in danger. The apostasy is here, my friends. We must teach our friends, family, and co-workers who the true God is. His name is Jesus Christ.
We must be smart. When you are confronted with the gay marriage issue, ask them questions why your belief is now relegated as second class. Put them on the defensive. Your best offense is your defense. God's Word will speak for itself. Do not back down to the world. It is going to get darker, and this is just the beginning of a very difficult year in the world of sinners.
Greece is battling to keep its sovereignty against a very powerful EU. There are problems on both sides, but basically we see the beast of Revelation exercising it's authority. A #grexit could be catastrophic. The next economic reboot will include the mark of the beast. I truly believe this. As currencies collapse, the last currency of this world will require you to give up Jesus Christ. Do not take the mark, but be bought with the blood of Jesus. The gay marriage issue had to happen for prophecy to continue. It hurts, but it is a step in a direction which will lead to the coming of Jesus Christ. A Greece default may be the next step.
Look for a horrible Iran deal around June 30th, and then an autumn push to persecute Israel through a mandated peace agreement from the EU and US. There will be more separation of the harvest at this time. We must stand strong, pray for one another, not get caught up in the small arguments of this life. We are at a spiritual war unseen since the foundation of the world. We all are affected.
I have been blessed to be the Bible Study teacher at our local church. This is why I have not posted as much. As Pastor, I have helped children understand what it means to be a Christian. I am going to baptize three young souls (oldest is 13) in July. That is a part of the harvest. We will see many fall away, but there will be some who will stand for Christ. Be of good cheer, He has conquered your sins. It is us who will live on this earth eternally with our Savior (Is. 65 & 66; Rev. 21 & 22). The sinners have their day now, but God is the one who will avenge all sin, and we who live with Christ will live joyously on the New Earth forever. Amen.
Russia, China, Iran, the Arab states, NATO, and the United States are all preparing for war. The militaries are prepping for a world wide conflict. Also, the French foreign minister is traveling to Israel to convince the Arab nations to force a treaty upon Israel where Israel will give up E. Jerusalem and the holy sites in 18 months. War is in the air, and it is coming. This war will be the war spoken in the Old and New Testaments. It will encompass the Gog/Magog War of Ezekiel 38/39, Daniel's War of Daniel at the end of chapter 11, Psalm 83, and others. Remember, the world elites are trying to control thought and behavior because they are fearful of what is coming. Tyranny is not where government necessarily takes all choices away, but limits the choices to the ones they agree with. Jesus is not one of the choices. It is getting worse, my friends.
Greece has signed an economic deal with Russia, and looks like it may be the first of the ten kings to leave, and soon be subdued. Time will tell, but Greece's exit will not be smooth. German and French banks are heavily invested in Greece, and the greed of these two nations cannot let Greece go. Every day is very important in this Greek tragedy.
Deception is great. Satan knows he must get the world to see Bible believing Christians as weird, racists, bigots, etc. Through laws and the force of our enemies, Christians are being persecuted, maligned, and pushed out of society. There will come a time, and yet it is already here where Christians will have to choose this life or the life to come. You may lose everything for the sake of Christ. The Southern Baptist Convention, in which I belong, gave out a dire warning that the US court case on gay marriage may force evangelical Christians to choose between their jobs and their faith.
In all of this, God is still good. He is in control, and He knows these things must happen. Scripture must be fulfilled so that His Word shines as the firmament. He will not leave you alone, nor will He allow Satan to take your soul. You were bought with a price, and He will always have you, eternally.
We are on Greece watch. I posted a commentary yesterday about the Antichrist looking at the same sky as you. He is somewhere in the world, and only God knows when he will walk into E. Jerusalem to perform the abomination of desolation. We do know three kings will be subdued by the Antichrist. I believe the three will be part of the ten Western European Union nations. One of those is Greece. I do not know for sure Greece will be one of the horns Scripture speaks about, but it may be.
We have seen more threats from the EU elitists toward Greece. There are strong reports the EU is preparing for a contagion that may take down a couple of more nations if Greece defaults. One has to wonder if the three horns are soon to be in the news. We will have a Greece watch for the next several days. News is pretty fluid right now, and I believe from what I read the EU and Greece are parting ways. Time will tell if a #Grexit is before us.
Keep up the faith. Stay strong, and remember we are here to rescue as many souls as God gives us, and not to rescue the whole world. The world will go as God's Scripture moves forward. Dark days are here, and will get darker, but your Lord is the light which will lead you in this darkened world.
