Repent Christians

In the old Testament we find God’s servant Daniel who repents for the sins of the Jewish nation, it is time for those of us who call ourselves followers of Jesus Christ, “Christians” to do the same. Hear what Daniel says: “Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules.”
(Dan 9:3-5 ESV)
We too have turned from the word of God, the scriptures. Many of our leaders have abandoned the Word of God and become lovers of the flesh, lovers of the riches of the world around us. Many of our leaders have led us into heresy, lust, and other abominations before the Lord. We see the words of the prophets coming to pass as we follow our own lustful desires.
God is not pleased, this nation in which we live and this time in which we live are being destroyed before our very eyes, yet most of us continue to follow our sinful ways, thinking that God will not notice. He has seen what we do, just as he has always seen our actions. He sent prophets to tell Israel to mend their ways or perish.
He has given us his word so we will follow his ways, and we pick and choose what we will follow, and what we will ignore. Just as the Jewish people did so long ago and were exiled for 2,000 years, so too we the people who have professed Jesus as Lord, have done. Exile however is not to be the punishment we will receive if we do not repent of our sins and act in and for the glory of God.
REPENT brethren, return to the Lord our God, Abba Father of Jesus first born from the dead, Father of all who will confess and believe that Jesus is indeed Lord. Changing our lives to worship Abba through Jesus, receiving the Holy Spirit, and being ready to enter into eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. I IMPLORE YOU!!!! Repent turn from your evil ways that you may come into eternity in the presence of God. Repent from your sin, live in the light that you might reap the reward of eternal live in heaven.
The DAY OF THE LORD is coming!!!!!!!



Has God said anything about today?

I do believe that God has much to say about our world of today, and that he said it about 3000 years ago. You see in the reign of Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon there was a young man named Daniel, a Jewish man who had been taken captive to Babylon after the destruction of Jerusalem. He was a young man who was a man of God, he worshiped and loved the God of Israel and God blessed him in all his endeavors.

One night King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and it scared him mightily, I don’t know about you but I have had some nightmares that woke me in the middle of the night in a dead sweat. The king had that kind of a dream, and he called for his wise men and the magicians, and the necromancers of his kingdom and demanded they tell him his dream and what it meant. Now these men told the king that no one can know the dream of the king so he must tell them what it was so they can they work out by their magic what the meaning was. He then said all of you will either tell me the dream and the interpretation or you shall roast in the ovens.

To make a long story a bit shorter, one of the Kings satraps said there was a man named Daniel who could probably tell the king what he wanted to know. Here is the story straight from the Bible book of Daniel:

Dan 2:31-45 NKJV  “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome.  (32)  This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze,  (33)  its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.  (34)  You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.  (35)  Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.  (36)  “This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king.  (37)  You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory;  (38)  and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold.  (39)  But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth.  (40)  And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others.  (41)  Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.  (42)  And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.  (43)  As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.  (44)  And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.  (45)  Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

It is true that Babylon was a great and mighty kingdom, that which followed was of the Persians and the Medes, later only the Persians. Then came Greece and Rome four kingdoms. All have fallen, but there have been others none of them really strong enough to rule the world, yet many have tried and failed. Today there are strong kingdoms, and of course many weaker, kings and queens no longer rule as they used to, we have today dictators, Presidents, Prime Ministers, etc., but none of these is strong enough to rule the earth. Iron and Clay are where we are today, sometimes our nation is Iron, and sometimes it is clay, I fear that we are heading into a time where are nation is going to be clay, and it will fall and become just another nation among many. I see that Russia and China are the rising threat to freedom in our world, but the truth is that we have a choice to make ourselves. Do we want to be clay or do we want to be iron.

Whichever it is you want to be a part of, I ask you to think very carefully about your decisions. There is another prophet in the Jewish scriptures that we might want to heed, his name was Haggai and his prophecies took up only 2 chapters, I would like you to look at only the 1st chapter of his prophecy and verses 3-7. “Hag 1:3-7 NKJV  Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying,  (4)  “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?”  (5)  Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!  (6)  “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”  (7)  Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!”

This word came to the people of Judea during the 2nd year of the reign of Darius in Babylon. God was not pleased with his people, for they had built themselves nice homes and they were comfortable but they were supposed to be rebuilding God’s house also and they had decided it was not time for them to be doing that. Here we are 3000 years later, and I say, nothing has changed, we think we are living high on the hog, then it all falls apart by the pandemic from China. It is not only this virus though that has come upon us and brought us to tough times. We have begun to witness the end of our nation, we are not willing to stand and be counted, we want rather to be pampered, we want Government to take care of us, from cradle to grave. Like the prophet Haggai, I will say to you that you need to consider your ways, if you will not change your ways, you will find yourselves in dire straits. You see, if you want the government to take care of you, you will become slave to that government.

Look to the nations around you and wake up to what is really going on in our world. Our government over the last several decades has become more and more a criminal enterprise, our Justice Department and FBI have been used to spy on us, and have been used to destroy a truly decent hero by the name of General Flynn, to spy on the legitimate President of the United States. They also, through the IRS refused to allow Non-Profits who were of a conservative bent to receive their non-profit status, and others were stripped of their status. Now we see that the communist left in this country is out to destroy anyone who is a conservative.

Consider your ways, this is a time that will try men’s souls, follow the path of the world and you will be crushed by the world. Follow the way of Christ and you will hold eternal life in the Kingdom of heaven. Consider your ways. I have considered mine, and I choose life in the Kingdom of heaven, over death in hell for eternity. Please heed the words of Daniel and Haggai, time is growing short, this world is moving toward its end as decisions are made that will move inexorably into the reality of destruction.

If you do not know Jesus as Lord, it is time you checked into this way of life, for death in hell is forever, just as life in heaven is forever. The choice is yours, choose wisely.

Lives that matter

Gen 1:26-28 NKJV  Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  (27)  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  (28)  Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

For those of us who are God fearing, who believe that God has created all that is and that includes human life on this planet upon which we all live, it is imperative that we state emphatically that ALL LIVES MATTER, black, brown, white. It matters not what your color, where you came from or more importantly how you live your life. What does matter is that we are all related to one another, we all came from one beginning.

Gen 11:6-8 NKJV  And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.  (7)  Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”  (8)  So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.

This is an interesting story, mankind was settled in one place and decided to build a tower to reach into heaven so they would be like God, the original sin was that Adam and his wife, later called Eve, would be like God if they ate the fruit. Here again mankind wants to be like God. Mankind finds itself unable to understand each other any more, and God splits them into language groups and places each group into its own place. Over time the men and women of the different groups change to what we see today, people who came from southern climbs, have darker skin, those from Asia seem to have sallow appearing skin and then of course we have those from the middle lands, Europeans who have white appearing skin. One thing we all have in common, we are ALL human beings, we are ALL mankind, men and women ALL are part of the human experience, we are not different beings, we are ALL mankind.

Yet here we are in our modern day, trying to make out that one group is superior to all the others. BLACK LIVES MATTER. This is the slogan, and if you try to say that, any life matters, not only Black but all lives matter, you find yourself being shouted down, and in some cases actually injured. This is not the nation that I grew up in, I can state that with all sincerity. We had our differences, and over time we had worked much of that out, and were working to try to collectively, realize the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he realized that we as a nation and as a people were trying to work through the stains in our society. We as honest Christian men and women were working to look at each other not as Black, White, Brown or Yellow, but as American men and women.

Did we have faults? Yes we did, but more and more we were working to end that scourge of racist hatred. The Margaret Sanger’s of this world want us to practice euthanasia, kill babies of those who are, supposedly, inferior so that they will not spread their inferiority to others. That is where Hitler got his ideas about killing of inferiors so that the master race would be the only one left. Thank God we ended that scourge of hatred, but of course we still had those hatreds in our own nation too. In the world I grew up in we were still working to rid ourselves of that horror, then came hatred rearing its ugly head. First the assassination of John F Kennedy, then Dr. King, then Bobby Kennedy. What a horrific time that was, we mourned each of these deaths together, but there were those who rioted in many cities, businesses and homes were burned and people were killed. Finally, we came to our senses and it all stopped, and for those of us in our collective groups, we worked at being good neighbors.

Then came 9/11 and the destruction of the twin towers, the death of the passengers of that plane in the field in Pennsylvania, and the destruction at the Pentagon by another plane. We all came together again in our grief and anger at what had happened. It was short lived and we went back to our lives and well we realized that our lives had changed. We were no longer as free as we had been. Much had changed in our society, the government had become Big Brother, spying on people and interfering in our lives to a degree new to our way of life. Let me now bring us to today, with chaos in our cities and of course Covid the gift of China to the world.

This will be a much longer quote from the Bible: Mat 24:3-14 NKJV  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”  (4)  And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.  (5)  For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.  (6)  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  (7)  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  (8)  All these are the beginning of sorrows.  (9)  “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.  (10)  And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  (11)  Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  (12)  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  (13)  But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  (14)  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Wars: There are 10 official wars and 8 active military conflicts recognized by the United States. There are also other violent conflicts involving 64 countries and 576 militias and separatist groups. This information comes from: https://www.reference.com/world-view/many-wars-going-world-right-now-ffd6236450ccb7ae this is only wars, there is much famine in our world right now as well: Yemen, DR Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria, Sudan, Northern Nigeria and Haiti are all facing famine of greater or lessor degrees. This list is in order of the number of people who will be affected by this shortage of food.

Today in many parts of the world Christians are facing death because of their faith. China has been removing crosses from Churches and putting in their place pictures of Xi and demanding that they worship the CCP and Xi as its head. Christians who refuse will find themselves in retraining camps.

In many other countries Pastors and Christians are being killed and their entire villages are leveled and / or burned to the ground. So here is the truth about persecution worldwide today: Every day, 8 Christians worldwide are killed because of their faith. Every week, 182 churches or Christian buildings are attacked. And every month, 309 Christians are imprisoned unjustly. So reports the 2020 World Watch List (WWL), the latest annual accounting from Open Doors of the top 50 countries where Christians are the most persecuted for their faith.

“We cannot let this stand,” said David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA, during the 2020 list’s unveiling in Washington, DC, this morning. “People are speaking out and we have an obligation to hear their cry.” The listed nations comprise 260 million Christians suffering high to severe levels of persecution, up from 245 million in last year’s list.

Of course we cannot forget the chaos in our own streets, the hatred of these marxist groups for our nation is now destroying cities across the nation. Of course Chicago has been home to much of this for many years, but, others have not. Oregon, and Washington States have not experienced this sort of violence until now. the marxist thugs want to destroy our history and rewrite it. One of the things that is particularly troubling is the 1619 project which is attempting to rewrite the history of our nation to say that it began with slavery in 1619 not in 1776 with freedom. It is an attempt to set us on a course of race war in our nation. We have been working since the beginning of our nation to bring freedom to all people in this nation. We are not perfect, but we are working toward perfection, and the end of racial hatred. My pain in this is that hatred and war will continue until our nation is destroyed and our hope for true partnership between all people in this nation will be lost to the marxist thugs who are working to destroy us, with the help of the demoncrat party. I do mean demoncrat simply because I see the members of that party moving into absolute hatred for any freedom loving people. These are people who want absolute power over our very lives.

This is just the beginning, there is more to come, Satan is alive and well and causing Chaos throughout our world. The only thing that holds this horror back right now is the the Spirit of God is still alive and well and living in Christians all across this world. Yes many are being killed and tortured for their faith. However we as Christians know that Satan cannot win, and that he and his evil will be completely destroyed and we will live forever with our Savior and Lord, Jesus the Christ, the second person of the God head, the human Face of God. I say all this because I want to see many thousands more people in this world become a part of our Christian family. It will mean eternity in the presence of God, instead of in the Lake of Fire (Hell).

Contact me, or any other believer that you may know, and we will be glad to help you to understand that God indeed loves you and wants you to be a part of the Kingdom of Heaven. The choice is yours, God will not force you to become a part of the Kingdom. You can only become a part by your own voluntary request, the alternative, is your voluntary membership in the kingdom of Hell and eternity in the lake of fire.

It is always your choice, please choose wisely, learn of the Kingdom of God or choose not to and be a part of the kingdom of death with Satan.

In this world in which we live, we find ourselves in a new and horrible world. A place where you can be killed just walking down the street, a world where you are supposed to feel you should apologize for things you did not do, nor had any control over. It seems like just being a certain color you are an enemy of all other people on the planet. Yet, you have never done anything to deliberately hurt another person. This is a world in which it seems we are unable to communicate, because we do not have a common starting place to communicate from, nor do those who are yelling about being discriminated against, listen to anything except your surrender.

In the 50’s we were all friends, black, white, brown it made no difference, our biggest concern was could you throw a football, or make a clean tackle. Of course there was also baseball, could you pitch, catch, hit whatever. We played together and had a pretty good team too. When later in life I became a Pastor and began to preach and teach, we had mixed congregations and we realized that we were brothers and sisters in Christ. We loved each other.

That is the world that I grew up in and now at 75 years of age, I find myself in a world that is all topsy turvey. Hatred seems to be the name of the game, and destruction of our history, one that has its dark spots, but we learn from what was bad as well as what was good. If we do not learn from our history, we will continue to do those things that caused black spots on our nation. We must learn from our failures so we don’t repeat them, and learn from our good times so we do repeat them, and maybe even improve upon them. We need each other, I hear your voices saying that black lives matter, and I agree, but all lives matter, all lives are important. Yet we live in a world where some lives are inconvenient, so abortion has killed almost 65 million, innocent human beings. Babies, who had no way to defend themselves, and so they were murdered on the altar of “CHOICE”. History repeats itself, babies were once sacrificed to a god called Moloch so that life would be better for those who rid themselves of that child.

History repeats itself, in the 1930’s in Germany they blamed the Jews for what was wrong in their country, they managed to kill 6 million innocent people, plus Christians, gypsies, deaf, blind and other undesirables. Just to purify the Master Race. Today we are killing people in this country, burning down entire city blocks, killing Police saying they are the problem, looting businesses too. Yet they say that black lives matter, except when that black person is a cop, or a conservative. We are repeating history, we are tearing our country apart, we are separating people by ethnicity, and by religion, and by conservative or liberal, communist or capitalist, it is a war where no one truly wins.

In the beginning God, it was God who created men and women, it was God who gave us a beautiful world in which to live and procreate, to plant crops to live together in peace and harmony, knowing that God was present in all we were engaged in. Then sin entered the world, and we have been fighting with each other for land, for minerals, for oil. Of course just plain hatred for one group or another. Now we are at loggerheads, we find that there are so many wars going on we can’t even count them. Our President wants to bring the troops home, the Democrats want to keep the war going, just because they hate the President and will not allow him to do his job. He held up a Bible in front of a burnt out church, and was vilified by the socialist mob.

If this keeps going the way it seems to be headed, we are going to be involved in an all out war for the soul of this nation. Many people will be killed, land and property will be destroyed and our nation will no longer exist. WE are no longer the United States of America, we have on the West Coast, the Socialist Republic of California, and the Socialist Republic of Washington. In the East Washington DC is becoming a Socialist Republic where the mayor of the city took over rule and threw out the troops that had been keeping some semblance of order. Then there is the Socialist Republic of New York, the Socialist Republic of New Jersey and it appears that Massachusetts is working on becoming the next Socialist Republic.

Then we have the “deplorables” according to HRC. Of which I am proud to be one. I truly believe that we in the more conservative parts of the country, are trying to live our lives as God fearing regular folks. I firmly believe that God is getting downright tired of sexual immorality, of murder of babies, and of those who have turned their lives over to Satan, who are actually preaching that there is no God, that it is all a myth and you can live you life as you please. So we have homosexual marriage, we have boys who were sexually abused as boy scouts, we have people who do not know what they are, boy or girl, then there are the neuters who are neither.

The title of this post is God will not be mocked. This comes from the letter to the church in Galatia: “Gal 6:7-8 NKJV  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.  (8)  For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” This nation has been making a mockery of God and of His law, we have become a nation of harlotry, and I believe that God is coming close to the end of his patience with our nation. I call on our Churches who have abandoned the truth for the lie of easy living and on the people who are also living the lie that Satan has set out to bring to fruition for the destruction of the Jewish & Christian faiths. Repent brethren, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

Propitiation – Predistination
April 21, 2020, 3:11 pm
Filed under: God | Tags: ,

One of the things that I had to come to understand was that Jesus Christ, was born to pay a price so that God could offer grace, forgiveness and and place you as a son or daughter of Himself, because, of the death and resurrection of Jesus over 2000 years ago. Of course there have been literally millions who have become sons and daughters of God through the death and resurrection of Jesus, but, it is still offered today and once accepted, you will be given eternal life in the family of God.

So what about that word above that is the title of this missive? Glad you asked, it is what happened when Jesus died on the cross. The Greek word for this is Hilaskomai and it is a word that was used by the Greeks of that time for the person to do something to make the gods pleased and so willing to take care of the cares of the person, meaning that the god in question was to propitiate the one who did the something. However Paul and the others did not use this word in that way.

You and I and all other human beings who live or lived since that crucifixion of Jesus on the cross had only to accept that death as our own and be “born again” to become new persons moving toward the love of God through the death of Jesus and of course his resurrection. Let’s look at the other word in the title of this missive, predestination. That is something that is actually also in our scriptures. It too has a different meaning from that which is used in many denominations. You see, we must realize that since God created all that we see and live and breath in, as we travel in our lives between birth and death. God is eternal, he was there before there was a there.

I always wondered why when they were preaching our pastors, before I became one myself, would say, God is there before you got there. What? How could that be? Simple of course, God is everywhere and everywhen, there is no time for God as he is outside of time and space. You and I are stuck in this linear life line that is our time frame, that is why we cannot take back our sinful actions nor can we know what tomorrow brings our way. God however is there in our past and in our future, so you see that the word in our scriptures, does not mean that God chose Mary and Joe and Harry to be saved, but you he did not choose. If you notice in the writings of the scripture you are invited to accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ. So if you are invited, that means you have free will, you may accept or reject that invitation.

The reason this is so is simple, we must go back to the first word of the invitation, Jesus Christ voluntarily went to the cross and allowed himself to suffer the beating, the crown of thorns and finally the nails to hold him on the cross. He did so because his death paid the price for my sin and your sin, He was the “hilaskomai” for you and for me, he was the propitiation for you and I and every other person on this planet. That is the meaning of the word for you and I today and everyday, Jesus paid the price. That is why God turned away from him, and why he cried out, “Why have you forsaken me” it was because God cannot abide sin.

Jesus was on that cross meeting you and I that day as the sins of millions of people buffeted him, my sin and your sin were all a part of him as he died on that day at Calvary, so you and I can become sons and daughters of God. The cost was a life, the life was the the Son of God on the cross at Calvary, he was the propitiation, the price was paid on that day for each of us. If you do not accept the invitation then your eternity is death over and over again, in the Lake of Fire with Satan and all his minions.

Now today if you do not know Jesus Christ, please and I mean this with all my heart, PLEASE, ask him to become Lord of you life, forgive your sins and fill your soul with the Holy Spirit. If you have done so, I would appreciate it if you would let me know. God bless you and keep you.

Repentance and healing
April 1, 2020, 7:49 am
Filed under: Church Stuff, God | Tags: ,

As I look at what is happening around us, the facts that people with pre-existing conditions such as bad hearts, diabetes, and other conditions which seriously affect their ability to fight off infections and other diseases like the yearly flu epidemic, I have seen the truth and it scares me. Our politicians have decided to rid us of the Constitution of the United States. They have ignored the fact that so far this “pandemic” has killed less than 5% of the deaths from auto accidents, flu, and other naturaly occurring incidents in our lives every year.

Please also note that most of the deaths from this “pandemic” have happened to people over 60 years of age, most with pre-existing conditions as noted above. Why then have the politicians decided to destroy our nation by locking down the citizens who are most able to continue the work that makes us strong? The flu kills upwards of 30,000 of our citizens every year, yet no one has called this a “pandemic”. It rages through the rest of the world killing everywhere thousands of people, yet it is not a “pandemic”.

There is a verse in the Old Testament that tells us that if we will admit to God that we have sinned against him and our fellow citizens he will heal our land.

2Ch 7:14 NKJV  if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

That means all of us people who claim the name Christian, if we will humble ourselves this day, pray and seek the Lord, turning from our wicked ways, he will hear our prayers and will forgive our sin and heal our land. REPENT today of your sinful ways, killing babies by the thousands every year, repent of sexual immorality, and any other sins you have committed. Our land has become scarred by the sins of our generation, which have led to more sins in the following generations. Repent and turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, get down on your knees, or figuratively, if you are, like me, in your 70’s or above. We have much to repent for, as we have allowed the death and destruction of today to happen, we have ignored the movement toward communism in this country and in many ways have helped, this scourge to happen.

The need for Repentance is great, and the time is NOW for that to happen, this is just the continuation of the many diseases that have been coming along more and more frequently. HN1, Swine, and the others were the prelude to what we face today. Wake up brethren, we are culpable, we could have said NO to the sins of our nation, we did not do so. Now is the time to begin the process of healing in our land, but we must recognize how far we have strayed from the path that our God has called us to.

1Pe 1:15-16 NKJV  but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,  (16)  because it is written, “BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”

We have been called to be messengers of the Lord our God, we are called to be Holy because our God is Holy. Yet the activity of our churches, especially those called mainline churches, but even so in the reality that all of our Christianity have slid away from the truth of what God’s word says of the way we are to live. We are to live holy lives to the best of our ability. Search your self today, ask God to search your heart today and cleanse you of the filth of sin in your life.

As Peter says to the Church of his day, so I say, and I too fall short of it, let all of us Repent, and work toward being Holy for our God calls us to holiness.



Worldly Churches

In Revelation Chapter 2, beginning in verse 12 we see the Worldly Church. It is the church that has begun to follow other paths and has left the teaching of the Apostles for the worldly teaching of  those who wish to destroy the Way of Christ.

Rev 2:12-16 NKJV  “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword:  (13)  “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.  (14)  But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.  (15)  Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.  (16)  Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Immorality was beginning to destroy the church in Pergamos, there was a move toward the worldly sins of those around them. This is not the end of course for those who will resist this false teaching, and stay true to the things of God, walking with Jesus, and keeping the faith. Now we will look at another church:

Rev 2:18-29 NKJV  “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:  (19)  “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.  (20)  Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.  (21)  And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.  (22)  Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.  (23)  I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.  (24)  “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden.  (25)  But hold fast what you have till I come.  (26)  And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—  (27)  ‘HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON; THEY SHALL BE DASHED TO PIECES LIKE THE POTTER’S VESSELS’—as I also have received from My Father;  (28)  and I will give him the morning star.  (29)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

Many of the mainline churches have fallen into the trap set by Satan to make them decide to practice false doctrines, and to allow sexual immorality to reign in the place of the doctrine of the scriptures. These are the churches that bless Planned Parenthood and the killing of innocent human life, babies if you will. They also are willing to allow sexual perverts to become leaders of their churches and even of geographical areas of their denominations. Some have already begun to die as true believers in Jesus will be forced out of their churches. Worldly pleasures take the place of the Lord of the Universe, He who died and is alive, who has promised to come back for His people. We may not know when but we do know He is true and will do what He has said he will do. He is the way:

Joh 14:5-6 NKJV  Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”  (6)  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Time is growing short, because the church of Jesus Christ must be taken out of this world before the true End Times begin. What we see now may very well be the birth pangs of the coming tribulation. We of course do not know when the Lord will come for His church, but, we should be found working for the kingdom when he does.

Time to decide, do you wish the worldly pleasures of the Jezebel’s of the world, or do you want the wonders of heaven. Life or death which is it you want. Choose now fellow human beings, tomorrow may not come for you.

Is This End Time?

A lot of folks are wondering about all the things they see happening, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Wars, and of course the Coronavirus. I have to admit that it is a scary time in which we live. I know a few Christian people who are wondering about all these things, and thinking that it is prophecy coming true.

We see this in the Gospel of Matthew, “Mat 24:3-7 ESV  As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”  (4)  And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray.  (5)  For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.  (6)  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.  (7)  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”

I know that there may very well be a terrible famine in North Africa after the Locusts millions of them, ate everything in site, stripped trees as well as crops. There are earthquakes daily, most are harmless, but there have been some 7.5 quakes this past year that did a lot of damage, and deaths as well. Wars, we definitely have our share of wars, we have been in Afghanistan almost 20 years. Of course these wars, we do see Turkey fighting against the Kurdish people, we hear Iran boasting they will destroy Israel.

Yet it is not any reason to believe that these are signs of the End of it all. They are indications that our world is getting closer to a time when China or Russia or both will begin wars against their neighbors and other nations will join in against them. Of course also, Russia is putting together a coalition in the middle east which may presage a bigger conflict there.

I do believe that things are going to get a whole lot worse, and one thing I know for certain, there is a coming conflagration, that will destroy the earth and millions of people will die before it is all over. I also do KNOW that there is a way to salvation, and it comes through Jesus Christ, he who died and was risen, in that death we can be saved from hell and live eternally in the presence of the God of creation. How do I know this you may ask. Here is the answer: “Joh 3:16-18 ESV  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  (17)  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  (18)  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

So what do you think? Is it time for a reassessment of how you are living your life. The apostle Paul  wrote these words in his letter to the church in Rome.  “Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. ” The death he is talking about is an eternity in the Lake of Fire along with Satan and his followers. The choice is yours, eternal life in heaven, or eternal death in hellfire. God will not sentence you there, you will sentence yourself. “Whoever believes in Him, Christ is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already.” If you refuse the offer freely given by God as Paul said, it is a free gift, but you must confess your sins, repent of those sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord of your life.

In life we make many choices, I ask you to make the choice that will guarantee you eternal life, saving you from the torment of eternal death in the Lake of Fire.

This is a worldwide project to tell the younger generation about the Bible and perhaps be able to save some from what is coming upon the world.

This is being worked on and is meant to reach out to younger folks who do not read, although they can, but rather use the internet mostly on their phones. What do you think? There are more of these snippets on You Tube.

Check it out and see what else Revelation Media is working on.
