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.

Sermon 10-13-2019
November 3, 2019, 3:53 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

This is a sermon delivered by our Pastor, Brother Ned Sitzes. The sermon deals with the problem that has become a reality in our society. It asks the question, “Why are God’s people not standing for Jesus?” What we are talking about of course is the Christian church in all its various types. It seems that Pastors don’t like to talk about Hell, they talk about Heaven, but the other side of the coin is Hell. People, however, don’t like to hear about the trust of eternal life in hell, they only like to hear about eternal life in heaven.

Brother Ned based his words in Hebrews chapter 10, Romans 3:23 and 6:23, and then Deuteronomy 4:9.

God of the Living

Jesus never did a Funeral he is God of the Living because he has given all who come to know him as Lord and Savior eternal life in the precincts of Heaven. We live in a world steeped in sin, a people who want only to fill a void in their heart. Drugs, alcohol, sexual pleasures, none of these will fill that void. Money, you can’t take it with you into eternity. Jesus offers what Satan cannot give, his fate is sealed, you as long as you are still alive, can choose eternal life in heaven, or, eternal darkness in the lake of fire. Please listen to what I say in the video. I implore any who hear to act if you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord. If you think this world is hard, it is going to be much worse! Choose Christ or choose Hell!



Hatred against Christians

It seems that the Democrat Party really hates Christians because they take every opportunity to rid our society of all references to Christ, the Cross, and of course our belief in the sanctity of life. In the book of Matthew, there is a conversation between Jesus and a Pharisee.

Mat 22:36-40 ESV  “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”  (37)  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  (38)  This is the great and first commandment.  (39)  And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  (40)  On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Now Jesus has just said something that I think a lot of the people in the Democrat Party have forgotten, I say this because I do not see a whole lot of love between them and those of us who are citizens of this nation. What has transpired this past couple of weeks has been nothing short of horrifying. Insane people taking innocent lives with unspeakable violence. that goes without saying a terrible act. What followed, however, was even worse simply because the Democrat Party especially those running for President blamed the President of the United States for the violence. Some even went so far as to say he was directly responsible, as if, he had ordered the death of all those people.

This President has worked to be the President of all the people, not just some of them. He has also acted in ways that work to preserve the reality of the Republic. Sanctity of life, love of country, reverence for the Constitution. He has worked to change laws where he could and to mitigate wrongs, such as a life sentence for a minor drug conviction. Yet we hear from the Democrat Party, that he hates blacks, Hispanics, women, and Muslims. Yet he has not acted in any way against any of these groups. Yes, he has limited immigration from certain countries, yet those countries don’t have any way to tell you who is or is not one of their citizens. He has tried to block terrorists from using the chaos in the middle east to gain entry into our nation.

As for as being against blacks, women or any other group, where is the evidence of that? Each of the groups in our nation now have full employment and are enjoying the fruits of their labors. As for Muslims, I have not seen any animosity by this President against this group, I have seen him calling out Muslims who have been attacking our nation, and himself, but then he does that to others as well.

So, to get back to the main topic, hatred against Christians in our nation. I find it very difficult to see why the Democrat Party hates God, the people in the House of Representatives, have done away with “so help me God” in the swearing in ceremonies, which of course is another indication of wanting to get God out of the way of what they are looking to accomplish. They seem to want dead babies, even after birth in some states now. This nation was founded by men who believed that God was an integral part of their lives. We find Jefferson inviting clergy to come to the Capitol to bring the word on Sunday mornings. The Congress even funded the publication of bibles to bring to the Indians to show them about God and to perhaps bring some to Jesus.

Now here we are today, the Democrats are working to remove God from everywhere they can, from the walls of State and City buildings, school buildings, even many courthouses. I cannot understand why that is, Jesus said that we are to love our neighbor as ourself and yet here we find hatred for over 50% of our nation. President Obama talked about people who cling to their guns and their Bibles. Hillary Clinton called us deplorables, as well as homophobes, and other names. There are many who are against homosexual persons, but we don’t hate them, we see them as in need of Jesus just as we ourselves have needed Jesus Christ to show us how to live.

There is evil in this land, and as a Christian man, I will fight evil with all my strength. I believe that the hatred I see in our land is evil, and is spawned by Satan to destroy our nation. Just as I look on socialism as an evil and vile type of violence against the people of this great nation. We fought the cold war to end the scourge of socialism in our world. We fought WW II to end the socialist nations of the Axis in Europe. Germany and Italy were both socialist nations, just as Russia was.

Today this evil is raising its ugly head in Russia, China and other places in our world. China is working to eradicate Christianity from their land, but making Churches take down crosses and rid themselves of Bibles, and worship the State. They are also imprisoning Muslims as well, in re-education camps.
So this is to be the future for those nations, and the Democrat Party is trying to make it the future for us in America. I see that if they win power in the House, Senate and the White House they will run roughshod over all of us.
