Do NOT Fear MAN Fear GOD, Who Has The POWER to CAST INTO HELL!


I received this letter via e-mail this morning, and felt led to share it with you.

Quote:
Pay particular attention to the end of this e-mail and what The New York Times did with this letter. Lou Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development, for Procter and Gamble, and over the course of 36years, made corporate history. Pritchett is one of corporate America's true living legends - an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering."


AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', repeatedly blaming someone else.
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because, despite repeated requests, you've never explained how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education, and your upscale lifestyle and housing with few visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because for over half your life you aligned yourself in one fashion or another with radical extremists and have refused to publicly denounce radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise!
Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going! All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now. Pass this along to everyone you know. End Quote.

We can conclude that this man is "scared", many men are "scared", I would say "Fear God, not man."

America we are under the rule of this Barrack Hussein Obama because God has set him over us. He is being used to humble us, and draw us to our knees, because we have placed our trust and faith in mammon, thinking it to be our security, instead of God.

Our financial hedges can no longer protect us, for God has torn down our hedges, For He found no man to stand in the gap, for none did seek God all looked to their prosperity instead of to God.

When God allowed us to prosper our hearts were lifted up and none remembered God to give HIM the glory! Men give themselves credit for their success, none acknowledge that it is God that gives us the abililty to gain wealth, and to prosper.

Men’s hearts will fail them for what is coming upon the earth!

"Bill" Would Give OBAMA Emergency CONTROL of the INTERNET!


We had best make full proof of our internet ministry while we have the opportunity, for the hour is coming when none can work for the Lord on the internet.
We are being slowly but surely sold a bill of goods, and the majority is buying it hook line and sinker!

An End Time Vision -Given to Pastor J.W. Matutis of Germany

This is not my vision it is the vision of a German Pastor-WHO HAS SINCE BEEN FOUND TO BE A PROVEN FALSE PROPHET! The swine flu vacine was never made manditory in any country - update 3/20/2011



QUOTE
August 27, 2009
Pastor J. W. Matutis -FALSE Prophet!

"While trying to prepare my message, the Lord showed me a vision.

I saw a large pasture with very many sheep. All of a sudden, from every direction and from all over, came wolves upon the herd, mixing themselves amongst the sheep. Neither the shepherds nor the shepherd dogs (of utmost importance) sounded any alarm. They lay on the floor as if hypnotized. There was just a bit of panic within the herd. The sheep did notice that something was wrong, but they took no serious note of what was happening. They just continued grazing in a relaxed manner. The shepherds and the shepherd dogs on the other hand noticed nothing.

As I observed closely, I saw the wolves, which had fangs like snakes in their mouths, tweak (pinch or prick) the sheep on their buttocks. These twitched briefly, and then continued their relaxed grazing. After a short while, the wolves ran from the herd, withdrawing themselves again into the mountains, without having stolen a sheep or inflicted any visible harm on them.

On seeing all these things, I thought to myself. 'This is not at all possible, that wolves would come amongst sheep and not harm them. This is out of character!' Then as the wolves left the sheep, I saw all of a sudden the leader of the wolf pack, together with his whole wolf fellowship on a high cliff. It was like a great beast; a monster. Then the wolves began to howl and yelp. The shepherd, shepherd dogs and all the sheep were terrified, shivering and shocked.

And the leader of the pack began, like a demon, to speak with a deep human voice. “My dear shepherds, dogs and all my dear sheep. You now belong to us. We have you completely in our hands. We were amongst you, without your noticing anything. We worked amongst you in disguise. We even inoculated you with a 'serum' that makes you now ours. You are all, as at now, bearing our 'mark'. We have also inoculated you with our spirit and data, without your having been aware. There is now no more escape for you. The whole flock is now under our control.”

I then said in my spirit “No! The Lord is my shepherd. I will have nothing to do with the devil and his demons. I will not have them as my shepherds.” Then spoke the leader of the wolf pack even further with a sneer on his face, saying “The sheep here ate and slept. Your bellies and welfare was more important to you.”

Now hear what this demon said to me very clearly: “We have now come to take revenge for our man of the Gadarenes. (See Matt 5:1-17) (error-actually Mark 5:1-12-my correction)Back then, your Lord cast us out of him, and we had to flee into swine and spring into the abyss. Now though, we have recovered and are strong enough to leave our cursed dwellings again. We have therefore returned from the abyss to take revenge against him (Jesus) and his works. These sheep all grazing here have been infected by our demons from the abyss. They can no longer escape. They belong to us absolutely.”

I was shocked!

Here, God spoke to me saying 'my son, every person will be asked to compulsorily take immunization against the swine flu in the next few days. This is a disguise. They will in the process be infected with demons from the abyss; all who do not have my spirit and my seal upon them. Yes, it will be such that that they will receive a deadly spirit inoculated into them. This will allow the wolves do with them what they like. Whoever does not follow them, antagonizes or stands against them in any way, will be eliminated at the touch of a button.

'For such will there be no more escape from them. Yes it is true, my son,' says the Lord. 'These cursed spirits will arise again out of the abyss and return through the “swine” to continue their mischief amongst the people who neither know nor follow me. I however, with my church will do same as then. We will depart from that area. So will those demons from the abyss exterminate one third of humanity.'

Then said the Lord to me further, 'But you, my children, who follow me, must be bold and brave, and say NO! Do not allow yourselves to be pricked and inoculated. You must consistently trust me. I will take you with me to the other shore, and we will continue there. For you my children, life goes on quite normally. You are my sheep. You hear my voice and follow me. And I send you as sheep amongst wolves. Warn all my children and all men of good will against this "worldwide compulsory inoculation". (A proven False Prophesy) It appears harmless. It is not!

'It is more the return on the ancient demons of the abyss. Warn everyone! Even when you are termed “paranoid” and “terrorist”. You are my children, and my people. You are holy. You should therefore have no other “stigma” in your bodies. Your body is a temple for my holy spirit, and not a secret dwelling for demons, which had been cast out by me, from which I delivered you,' says the Lord.

I am passing on this message as it was given me.

Dear friends, we are right in the end times. Watch quite carefully, what happens to you and your children. The devil is, and remains a liar. And he has no good intentions. I was shaken, when God showed me this vision with the swine, in connection with the whole thing about immunization against swine flu.

The believers are about to undergo the end times test, where will be shown, whether we have enough resistance power, enough to say NO. You are not defenseless. God gave you his Holy Spirit and the whole armor (see Ephesians 6: 16-17). These you will now need and must soon make use of. If you are not yet a true child of God, repent! Be baptized and be filled the Holy Spirit, so that the seal of God will be upon your life (Ephesians 1:1,13, 4:30 and Revelations 7:3&4) and you cannot be touched for the devil.

Pastor J.W.Matutis. End Quote

WARING SAINTS- THIS MAN HAS BEEN PROVED TO BE A FALSE PROPHET!



Note: My highlighting-Please note that it was pointed out to me by the origonal author of the article that as I had cut and posted - I had made a type o, on one of the scriptures-oops! It happens! Also note that I updated this article, false prophesy 3/20/2011



The Lord, a few years ago gave me a dream, of a farmer plowing a field, while his sheep were grazing in another of his fields, where dogs were watching them. A pack of wolves decended on the flock of sheep, and I tried to call out to him to warn him, because his dogs were not reacting to the danger, but the farmer kept on plowing, and didn't even hear my cries, or if he heard them he had no intention of stopping what he was doing to tend to his sheep.

When I read this vision today I instantly remembered the dream the Lord had given me.....Many today will not hear the warning of wolves amongst the sheep, and will scoff and mock, but they will have been warned!

Just How Were Things Done In The Early Church?


Was the early church intended to be organized as such, that one man ruled the gatherings, one man was Lord over the flock, one man preached, one man testified, one man glorified, one man alone shared for the Glory of God?

Nope! It was to be an interaction in an orderly fashion, of the whole body that was gathered together, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, that all may play a part, in testifying, edifying, exhorting, prophesying, sharing psalms and spiritual songs with one another. Each was to give preference to the other, and take an interest in the things that God was doing in the lives of others, not just their own. Was it given that only one man should share the gospel? No we are all to share the gospel as the Holy Spirit leads us.

1 Corinthians 14:26-33
26. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
27. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
28. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
29. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
30. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.
31. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
32. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
33. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Note: I felt led to drop this comment here, if you read vs 34. You may think that women have no place to share what God has done for them, when they are gathered with believers.
Many have made a doctrine out of this verse and said, "Well men may speak in church and be used, but women can't"....They are wrong, the verse is referring to silly women who were speaking out of turn, and who were asking questions, that they should have put aside to ask their husbands when they went home. They were women who were not seeking to edify, but rather cause confusion, and disorder.

Think about it, if it were such that women were to have no part in gatherings of believers, then the Lord would not have poured His Spirit out upon them, that they may prophesy. With God there is no partiality, neither Jew nor Greek, male nor female, all may be used for HIS GLORY! One cannot take one scripture out of context and make a doctrine out of it, though it is done.

Acts 2:16-18-Peter speaking!
16. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18. And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

1 Corinthians 14:40
-referring to when the body of believers is gathered together!
Let all things be done decently and in order.

I am afraid that the thing that calls its self the church is a mere shadow of what it was intended to be, for the most part!

The early church knew one another, they fellowshiped daily in one another's homes, they cared for the needs of one another. These days you can go into a church, or amongst those that call themselves Christians, and feel like you are in amongst the world, in fact sometimes worldly people can be friendlier.

Oh how men love to control, the controlling spirit of "Jezebel" who hated the Prophets of God, is not just negated to women, it is rife amongst men as well. Man does not want, nor trust the Holy Spirit, to take control out of their hands.
Am I saying there should not be leaders, no I am not, but leaders are to be humble, examples to the flock, not Lords over the brethren. He who would be greatest amongst you, let him be servant of all. Leaders have a far more weighty responsibility before God, than do others. We whether called to a leadership position or not, are all merely brethren, we all have a part to play in God's plan.

Church curriculum's for the most part rule teachings these days, men do not get on their face before God for a Word, they rely on something someone else has written, to feed the flock.
It is so sad that denominations convince a new convert, one who is on fire for God, to go to their seminary (cemetery), to become a preacher. Or the new convert thinks that is what is required, in order to share the gospel. In those denominational institutions, they are indoctrinated into a man made denomination, and taught how to Lord it over the flock. They are taught what to believe, and what to teach others to believe. Outside of the Grace of God, their fire is watered down, and they become controlled by the denomination, church boards and church members, rather than the Holy Spirit.
They depend upon the flock to make their living, they have a career now!

I have been visiting a church of late, merely out of necessity to honor the wishes of another, and I must say nary a word of scripture is put forth in that place, at least not in the services I have attended. It seems like a place of famine! It takes all my strength just to sit there. The spirit of control is prevalent, palpable.

These days men seem to feel that their opinions, (for example Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, just two of hundreds) far out weight the written Word of God. I tell you if people depended on men for their salvation, and their knowledge of God, they will be lost and malnourished. Men who compromise the Word of God are an abomination to HIM.

What were we told to do-"Preach the Word!" It is the preaching of the Word that brings Faith, and conviction, and helps lead men toward salvation, it is the preaching of the Word that brings, strength, hope, and deliverance!

The church of Acts, went boldly, daily to the Temple of the Jews, who were still under the law, to pray and to share the truth, and to manifest Jesus Christ, in healing, and testimonies of the power of God, and to prophesy to the people. See Acts Chapter 2

Acts 2:47
Praising God, and having favour with all the people. "And the LORD added to the church daily such as should be saved"...

Note: it doesn't say added to the Temple...for our bodies are the temple of the Living God!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Mark 11:17-18-Jesus said:
17. And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
18. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

We need to pray earnestly for Pastors, and church leaders, that they, in this hour will seek God with all their hearts, minds and souls. For they shall be held accountable before God for their ministry to HIS sheep!

Weary Not in Well Doing Saints!

Never Forget What HE Suffered And Endured For YOU!
This is the Word the Lord put on my heart to share today...such an easy phrase to speak, "Weary not in well doing" but what does it really entail?

Self-less living!

Self must die, our flesh and its lusts must be crucified. Self-denial must be in the forefront...We must set aside anger, malice, unforgiveness, jealousy, selfishness, self-centeredness. We must look to the needs of others, we must show compassion toward others, for surely we all need the LORDS MERCY!

It means patience, it means endurance...patient endurance of what the LORD has set before you. Patience and endurance in, and through, all situations, whether it be caring and enduring with and for a friend or a loved one, whether it be longsuffering through any circumstance. For if we do not faint at what the LORD has set for us to endure, then in due season, we shall reap His blessing!

As the LORD once stressed to me.."Your life was not given you that you may enjoy it, but rather that you would learn to endure what I have set before you."

Life is full of struggles for the saints of God, many and varied struggles of diverse kinds, yet we are to hold fast to our Faith and trust in God, and know that "All things work together for good to them that love God and to them that are the called according to HIS purpose."

Saints of God at times you may not see a purpose to your daily struggles, or that situation in which the LORD has allowed you to dwell, but rest assured HE does have a purpose in it, and it is for your eternal good...and for the benefit of HIS Kingdom and for HIS GLORY!

We are not to lean to our own understanding saints, for our understanding can lead us down a wrong path, but we must trust God, and lean on, and learn of HIM. Look constantly and consistently on HIS example, which was set for us to follow. Take pleasure in your sufferings saints knowing that they are working the fruit of the Spirit to perfection in you, and you will receive the reward if you stand fast in HIM!

Be willing saints, to take up your cross daily and follow HIM.

God bless you saints!

The Crazies Are Coming Out Of The Woodwork!


Some delusional "Roman Catholic" man is claiming to be "Jesus"-"Speaking publicly for the first time"...you can hear it on U-Tube...Oh boy, and what is sad, is that some delusional people will lap it up like sugar syrup....This man has no idea that he is in danger of Hell fire...he claims to be Jesus, whom he does not know...or he would not make such claims...he's not the first and according to the Word of God he won't be the last...for the Word says..many shall come in my name claiming to be the Christ and from such people as this we should ..turn away...

Demonic herds have been unleashed upon the earth saints, and have entered men's souls to deceive!

Matthew 24:4-13
4. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Matthew 24:23-27
23. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25. Behold, I have told you before.
26. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

2 Timothy 3:1-9
1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

To think oneself to be Jesus is surely "Heady" and "High minded"-can't get any higher!

America you are fix'n to be taken out of the way!


There is no more time to get ready, the end is upon us saints. For many it shall come upon them unawares, because they live in a fantasy world, and have mocked and scoffed the prophets of God for years, thinking that no evil shall ever come upon them.

Well they are fixing to find out that every word of GOD is TRUE and men are liars. They are going to find that their mammon can not save them from what is coming, their education can't save them from what is coming, nothing can save them from what is coming. They have hardened their hearts, and stiffened their necks, and dwelt in their rebellion against God....

The church is in a sorry state also, and our house is left unto us desolate...it is barren, -barren of the truth of the Word of God,- barren of Mercy, -barren of Justice,- barren of Righteousness...It is full of the stench of Pride...There is no place of rest within its walls...It is altogether become unfruitful..and it shall be laid waste...because Truth is no more found in it.

Many shall loose their faith when they see what is coming on this land, because they have been taught in their prosperity, that they would not have to suffer tribulation....they have been lied to. They have been taught that they would not be here when trouble came...They have depended on men to teach them, rather than study out the Word of God for themselves, under the guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT who is our teacher. They have blindly believed men rather than seek God for themselves. Well sorry to say but-the pre-trib "rapture" theory is about to get "ruptured"...and men's hearts will fail them when they see what is about to happen in the earth...those of you who will......REPENT REPENT REPENT!!!

Matthew 24:42-51
42. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49. And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50. The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51. And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 21:34-36
34. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6. And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

(This verse 7 is not referring to the "raptured" church or to the HOLY SPIRT being removed from the earth, the HOLY SPIRIT is omni present. This is referring to the worldly power that is being used to hold back the ability for the anti-christ to arise to world domination)

8. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1 Corinthians 15:50-53
50. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51. Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Revelation 8:6
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

Revelation 10:7
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

So saints, the dead in Christ shall rise-at the sounding of the 7th trumpet
Then we which are alive and remain-at the sounding of the 7th trumpet-shall be changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye, and so shall we ever be with the LORD!!!

What Christ Endured For YOU!

How Foolish Are Those Who War Against God!


Revelation 19:11-21
11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

14. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

17. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

18. That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

20. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

This is the legacy of all those that hate God, and them that war against HIM!
This same God of judgment is watching over us all now....this is still a time of Grace and Mercy, but it shall soon to come to an end. For those foolish enough to continuously set God aside, in favor of their own agenda, and their own way, they shall be a part of this judgment.
All those who have shown no mercy, no mercy shall be shown to them, and they to shall be a part of this judgment. All those who have exalted themselves above God, and thought that He didn't see, and He didn't hear, and He didn't know the very thoughts and intents of their hearts, they also shall be a part of this judgment. All those who have loved unrighteousness shall be a part of this judgment.

God is good, and God is Faithful, and I have been observing Him dealing in lives, in only ways that He can sovereignly do. No man is able to do that which God does, He is able to move in ways that we had not even dreamed were possible, in order to reach souls and draw them to himself.
Some of us He takes down a hard path, that we may come to the end of ourselves, and cry out to HIM....all those who cry out to HIM HE will not turn away, but HE will save to the uttermost!

If God is dealing with you today, it is no coincidence. Heed HIS voice, before it is too late, and the door of Salvation and deliverance is shut. There are no second chances after death, there are no second chances once the times of the gentiles are fulfilled. Those who received not the love of the Truth while it was made available to the gentiles, but rather took pleasure in unrighteousness, will be turned over to believe a lie and be damned.

Cry out to God for HIS MERCY and REPENT while you still have the opportunity!

An Excellent Message

A lot of Preachers these days don't even use the Word of God, they use their own words....their own wisdom, their own thoughts....they lack, and this faithful pastor explains why they lack! God bless you brother David Cook!

Burlington Coat Factory Outlet Helps Promote Islam

Click on photos to see enlarged view!



While in the process of purchasing "back to school clothes" for the 3 grandsons we came across this very interesting situation. I might note here that we were going mostly for cheap and for color, and were in a hurry, because when you have 3 rambuncious boys in tow, well you just want to get done, and get out...so it wasn't until we got home that we discovered what we had in reality, purchased!

These are images of one of two t-shirts that were purchased and then returned to "Burlington Coat Factory Outlet", East Wichita, Kansas.

Just thought you might like to see the subtle way Islam is being incorporated into our daily lives.
At first glance the first shirt, had floral swirl like patterns on it, but at closer examination it had the word "Mecca" (The Muslim's high holy place) embroidered on the chest with the 5 stars -(symbolic of the 5 points of Islam), resting in the curve of the M. As soon as we realised what it was we returned it.

Then we decided to examine the other shirts and found this one, which we promptly returned.
The shirts are made in Pakistan a Muslim strong hold, so no surprise.

The label in photo 1 reads-"Mecca since day one" and the logo on the back is kinda in your face it reads as you can see-"Mecca five star command New York City!" It is clearly not meant as a tribute to the Americans slaughtered in the twin towers by the Muslim terrorists!

I am sure that many unsuspecting Americans have purchased these shirts not understanding the significance of their merchandise.

These folks already know that we are dumber than a box of rocks and will accept anything as a nation. Wonder what will be next!

Just to Make you think America!!!
It's later than we think Church, we are surely racing toward God's great Judgment!

Internment Camps on American Soil-Ask Not For Whom They are Built, They may be built for Thee!



http://www.nationalguard.com/careers/mos/description.php?mos_code=31E

National Guard INTERNMENT-RESETTLEMENT SPECIALIST- a career choice for new enlistees- How delightful!

Just whom are the government going to "intern" and whom are they going to "resettle"

My guess is they could be for anyone who rises up against the government, or anyone who refuses to take their flu shots, or refuses to go along with government commands of any kind, or anyone who stands for Jesus Christ, Righteousness and The Truth-but just a wild guess!

Now, as the children of God, are we to worry and fret? 100% NO!

God has been preparing HIS own, that we might be witnesses in these camps if we should be so interned. What a glorious opportunity to let our lights shine in the midst of darkenss and evil!

JESUS SAID, "YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL MEN FOR MY NAMES SAKE!"

Revelation 2:10 -an exhortation to the church of Smyrna
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Many in the world today are in prison for their stand for Jesus Christ, and their refusal to compromise His Truth, America, it looks like your turn is drawing closer!

Many think that they are above suffering for the Lord, many think that they are going to be raptured from their air conditioned pews to glory any day now...you had better wake up and trim your lamps church. There is only one second coming! and it shall be at The LAST TRUMP!

Time to repent and purify your hearts and cleanse your minds ye double minded-ye cannot serve God and Mammon!

PRIDE AND THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT-by David Wilkerson


Let me distinguish clearly between pride and humility.

A humble person is not one who thinks little of himself, hangs his head and says, “I’m nothing.” Rather, he is one who depends wholly on the Lord for everything, in every circumstance. He knows the Lord has to direct him, empower him and quicken him—and that he’s dead without that!

A proud person, on the other hand, is one who may love God in a fashion, but he acts and thinks on his own. At its root, pride is simply independence from God, and the proud person makes decisions based on his own reasoning, skill and abilities. He says, “God gave me a good mind, and he expects me to use it. It’s silly to ask him for direction in every detail of life.”

This person is unteachable because he already “knows it all.” He might listen to someone who is higher in authority or better known than himself—but not to someone he thinks is inferior.

Not one word a proud person receives is of God! It is impossible for him to judge righteous judgment—impossible to speak God’s mind—because the Holy Spirit is not present in him to bear witness to truth. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

Pride is independence—humility is dependency. The humble Christian is one who makes no move, no decision, without counsel from the Lord. The Bible says the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord, but he cannot order the steps of an independent spirit. This is all to say—God wants full control—give it to him.

“God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble” (James 4:6).
This is Brother Wilkersons devotion for today, I felt led to publish it here. You can read all his devotions by clicking on the link to your right of the blog.
God bless you saints...God is GOOD!!!!

A Young Man With Godly Wisdom!

JESUS, YESHUA or YAHSHUA??-by Dr. Michael L. Brown.


Quote:

I am continually amazed by how many people write to our ministry and ask us questions like this one, which came in last week:
"Some Christians say we have to use the Hebrew name, Yashua. They say calling on the name of Jesus is calling on Zeus. That Jesus is a disguised name for Satan. What answers do you have for this?
Where can we prove the name of Jesus is correct to use in its English translation and pronunciation?"
As bizarre as these questions are, the fact that they keep coming up means that they need to be addressed, so here are some simple responses (for more details, see "What Do Jewish People Think About Jesus", question #38).

The original Hebrew-Aramaic name of Jesus is yeshu'a, which is short for yehoshu'a (Joshua), just as Mike is short for Michael. The name yeshu'a occurs 27 times in the Hebrew Scriptures, primarily referring to the high priest after the Babylonian exile, called both yehoshu'a (see, e.g., Zechariah 3:3) and, more frequently, yeshu'a (see, e.g., Ezra 3:2).

So, Yeshua's name was not unusual; in fact, as many as five different men had that name in the Old Testament. And this is how that name came to be "Jesus" in English: Simply stated, this is the etymological history of the name Jesus: Hebrew/Aramaic yeshu'a became Greek Iesous, then Latin Iesus, passing into German and then, ultimately, into English, as Jesus.

Why then do some people refer to Jesus as Yahshua?

There is absolutely no support for this pronunciation-none at all-and I say this as someone holding a Ph.D. in Semitic languages. My educated guess is that some zealous but linguistically ignorant people thought that Yahweh's name must have been a more overt part of our Savior's name, hence YAHshua rather than Yeshua-but again, there is no support of any kind for this theory.

The Hebrew Bible has yeshu'a; when the Septuagint authors rendered this name in Greek, they rendered it as "iesous" (I­­esous, with no hint of yah at the beginning of the name); and the same can be said of the Peshitta translators when they rendered Yeshua's name into Syriac (part of the Aramaic language family). All this is consistent and clear: The original form of the name Jesus is yeshu'a, and there is no such name as yahshu'a (or, yahushua or the like).

What about the alleged connection between the name Jesus (Greek I­­esous) and Zeus?

This is one of the most ridiculous claims that has ever been made, but it has received more circulation in recent years (the Internet is an amazing tool of misinformation), and there are some believers who feel that it is not only preferable to use the original Hebrew/Aramaic name, Yeshua, but that it is wrong to use the name Jesus. Because of this, we will briefly examine this claim and expose the fallacies that underlie it.

According to the late A. B. Traina in his Holy Name Bible, "The name of the Son, Yahshua, has been substituted by Jesus, Iesus, and Ea-Zeus (Healing Zeus)."
In this one short sentence, two complete myths are stated as fact: First, there is no such name as Yahshua (as we have just explained), and second, there is no connection of any kind between the Greek name I­­esous (or the English name Jesus) and the name Zeus. Absolutely none! You might as well argue that Tiger Woods is the name of a tiger-infested jungle in India as try to connect the name Jesus to the pagan god Zeus. It is that absurd, and it is based on serious linguistic ignorance.

Here is another, equally absurd statement:"... according to the ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA, the name Ieusus (Jesus) is a combination of 2 mythical deities, IEU and SUS (ZEUS, a Greek god)." - (http://www.wwyd.org/).The response to this statement (which has as much support as the latest Elvis sightings) is quite simple: We know where the name I­­esous came from: the Jewish Septuagint! In other words, this was not some later, pagan corruption of the Savior's name; rather, it was the natural Greek way of rendering the Hebrew/Aramaic name Yeshua at least two centuries before His birth, and it is the form of the name found in more than 5,000 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. This is saying something!

The name I­­esous is also found in Greek writings outside the New Testament and dating to that same general time frame. Although it is claimed that the Encyclopedia Britannica says that "the name Ieusus (Jesus) is a combination of 2 mythical deities, IEU and SUS (ZEUS, a Greek god)" it actually says no such thing. This is a complete fabrication, intentional or not. In short, as one Jewish believer once stated, "Jesus is as much related to Zeus as Moses is to mice."

Unfortunately, some popular teachers continue to espouse the Jesus-Zeus connection, and many believers follow the pseudo-scholarship in these fringe, "new revelation" teachings. Not only are these teachings and practices filled with error, but they do not profit in the least.

So, to every English-speaking believer I say: Do not be ashamed to use the name JESUS! That is the proper way to say his name in English-just as Michael is the correct English way to say the Hebrew name mi-kha-el and Moses is the correct English way to say the Hebrew name mo-sheh.

Pray in Jesus' name, worship in Jesus' name, and witness in Jesus' name. And for those who want to relate to our Messiah's Jewishness, then refer to him by His original name Yeshua-not Yahshua and notYahushua-remembering that the power of the name is not in its pronunciation but in the person to whom it refers, our Lord and Redeemer and King.

RETURN of THE JUDAIZERS??-by Andrew Strom

I have friends who call Jesus "Yeshua". I don't mind it at all. I have other friends who keep the Saturday Sabbath. It doesn't bother me too much, unless there is a kind-of "aggressive attitude" about it. But in recent years I have witnessed a worrying trend - that in my opinion is growing worse - and we need to address it.

Today when a Christian tells me that they are "Torah-observant" then all kinds of alarms go off. It may be that they are just into 'Hebrew roots' - but usually it is a lot more than that. We all know that in the early church, the biggest problem they had was with the "Judaizers" who went around trying to convince the Gentile Christians that they must obey the letter of the Old Testament Law. This shipwrecked the faith of many. It was the biggest problem they had. The book of Galatians is all about it - and many other sections of the New Testament. It was a battle between the old Law - with its subtle bondages - and the new walk of the Spirit and of grace.

A few months back, we published the testimony of a Christian woman who got involved with a Messianic group that slowly under-mined her faith in Jesus - and basically converted her gradually into a practicing Jew - even though they all thought of themselves as "Messianic Christians"! She realized later, that in almost everyway she had slowly had her faith in Jesus and the New Testament, replaced with the keeping of the Torah. She had been "Judaized"!

And I fear this is happening to a great many Christians today - in all kinds of subtle ways. This is exactly what the Bible warns against - losing the "simplicity" of the faith. And that is why Paul was so strong against the Juda-izers. He saw that Christians were being tempted - not to place their faith in Christ alone - but rather in Christ PLUS the keeping of the Law. It was no longer a simple trust in JESUS to be their righteousness. They now started to feel they had to keep the letter of the Old Law too - in order to be truly "holy". And so they became "Judaized". This is the worst trap possible. And so subtle!

Let us look at a few vital Scriptures. Please open your Bible to Acts 15:1-29.

This whole passage is about a great meeting of the apostles to decide whether - with the new Gentile Christians - it was "necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses" (v 5). So what did the apostles conclude about this?
As Peter declared during the debate about it, "Why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?" (v 10).
At the end of the great meeting, the apostles put out a letter to the Gentile Christians that declared: "For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered toidols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well."(v. 28-29).

And as far as the Old Law went, that was it! In other words, no "Torah observance", no Sabbath, no circumcision, no Old Law apart from these few things. This brief list only. That was the pronouncement of the apostles. If they wanted to tell the Gentiles, "You must keep the Jewish Sabbath," then this was the place to do it. But it is definitely not included. And neither are a thousand-and-one other things from the Old Testament.

Of course, this should be no surprise to us. In Colossians 2, Paul tells us very clearly that Christ has "wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us" by nailing it to the cross (v. 14).
He then goes on to say: "So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ."(v. 16-17).

So all these Old Testament practices are only a "shadow" of the New. In fact, as Hebrews makes clear, the entire Old Covenant was only a 'type' or shadow of that which was to come. It was not the real thing! It does not make us more "holy"!
The substance is found in Christ - and Him alone.
The Old Torah "requirements" were nailed to the cross with Jesus.
We don't need them any more.

If anybody ever tells you that the New Testament is simply a"continuation" of the Old, run a mile from that person. They simply do not know what they are talking about. In fact, what they are spouting is dangerous heresy. Thus, as Paul tells us in Romans, observing the Sabbath is only necessary if our conscience is weak in this area - and we feel we have to:- "One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it"(Rom 14:1-6).
So we do not "have" to observe the Sabbath. It does not make us more 'holy' or righteous to do so. It is simply a matter of conscience. This runs against a lot of the teaching that is doing the rounds right now.

There is a lot of dangerous "Back to the Torah"-type emphasis that is bringing a lot of harm to a lot of people. Many of them don't even realize what is happening to them. Paul clearly tells us in Galatians that you can lose your salvation by beginning to rely on the Law in your Christian walk: "You observe days and months and seasons and years. I am afraid foryou, lest I have labored for you in vain" (Gal 4:10-11).
He then goes on to say, "You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace." (Gal 5:4).

Alarming statements, are they not? You see, it is a direct insult to the work of Christ and to God forus to go back to the "works of the Law" to try and make us more'righteous' in His sight. It is placing our trust in something other than just Jesus. We are "adding works" for our salvation. And it will not do.

I believe that just like the Galatians, a lot of people today need to repent of trying to add the Old Law to their salvation - some times in subtle ways - some times major. This is not the kind of thing to toy around with. It can be utterly deadly.

If you are someone who is adding "Torah observance" to your faith, I urge you to repent.

It Shall Be Worth It All When We See Jesus!


Saints I tell you that I have been going through some of the hardest trials and tests that I have ever gone through...but I tell you that God is Faithful....He has given me a covering of His Holy Spirit, that makes all the things that I am experiencing unable to tear me apart...God is good.

I could tell you some of the things, but I do not wish to give Satan any sense of glory....suffice it to say that Satan is desiring to have me, that he may sift me as wheat, but Jesus Christ is praying for me, interceding for me that my faith fail not...amen!

We are all, as the saints of God, going through many things in this hour, maybe not the same trials and testings, but all of God's people are being tried, that we may come forth as gold.

Praise Him, in your afflictions, and your trials saints, don't think these things that are coming upon you are some strange thing, don't question God's wisdom, He allows these things for our perfecting.

It is surely true that no trial seems pleasant at the time, it is not painless to be attacked by the enemy of our soul...but if we stand firm and set our hearts, minds and souls on Jesus Christ our deliverer and soon coming King, we shall stand in that day as overcomers!

I so want to encourage the one today, who might say, "Oh that's easy for you to say, you don't know what I am going through."

I would say, your right brother, sister, but hey, you don't know what I am going through either!

We are all fellowshiping with the sufferings of Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour, who has walked the path before us, and he was without sin. He suffered for each one of us, that we might cling on to Him, and remember His example that was set before us, that in our sufferings we should not grow weary or faint, so that we might have the victory through Him in the end.

So look up saints of God, for your redemption draweth nigh!

It shall be worth it all when we see Jesus!

This Man Would Make The Scribes and Pharisees Proud!

Just when you think you've see it all...the proud exhalt themselves for all to see....you'd think that with what knowledge these men have that they would fear God...just a wee bit...but NOPE!

2 Cornithians 11:13-15

13. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

For God shall say to such as these, "Depart from me ye that work iniquity, I NEVER KNEW YOU"

Oh how wonderful the workings of the Lord!


A sister just e-mailed me the link to the following audio, I recommend you all listen, it has some very good exhortations in it: http://www.bridgegap.org/e/shop/item.asp?itemid=3112&catid=122 Go Down to Item Options & Stream for Free click on play.

It ministered to me greatly and I pray it does the same for you saints.

My heart has been broken by some of my family members, and I am realizing now that I had my heart set in the wrong place. Therefore I set myself up for heart break, I put way to much value upon my family members, instead of having all of my heart set on the Lord. Therefore Satan was permitted to use these family members to come against me, to seek to destroy me. I know the Lord shall heal my heart!

Jesus said, "Where your treasure is there will be your heart also". Earthly treasures don't have to mean money. Our families, especially the little ones, can become the focus of a great overabundance of our love. God wants all of our hearts, He does not want our children, or our grandchildren, or our spouses to become our earthly treasures. He wants to be our only treasure, and He wants us storing up treasures in Heaven, not on this earth!

The Word says that a mans enemies would be those of his own household, I can relate to this.

Matthew 10:34-39
34. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Yes this scripture can be applied to the fact that when we become saved, many of us experience rejection and ridicule from unsaved family members. However we are to cast aside the rejection and the hurt and loose ourselves in Christ Jesus our Lord.

This audio has helped me realise my position, and has exhorted me to a new perspective!

If I had not focused so much love on my son and his children, Satan would not have been able to use them pawns in his chess game, he would not have been able to crush my heart, all the while laughing with glee and taking great pleasure at my misery. I gave place to him, because of my overabundance of affection set in the wrong place. My children and grandchildren are not mine, they are the Lords, and my only duty is to pray for them, that we may spend eternity together, knowing as we are known and recognizing that we are God's.

God will in His time deal with those who's hearts are not right. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord I shall recompense thee. My place is to set my heart continuously on Him.

So I thank God for using a brother in the Lord whom I do not know, to set me straight. Glory to God, all parts of the body of Christ are necessary.

Keep me in your prayers saints...God bless you all!

Many Earthly Shepherds Lack Discernment!


The lack of discernment amongst the earthly shepherds is frightening. Some churches are now so huge, that it is impossible for the pastors to intimately know their flock. You can’t know a person, by merely attending the church building with them; you must fellowship out side of the church setting. Neither can you know a person via the internet. It is easy to hide behind a microphone in some of the chat rooms, where no one sees your daily walk, no one truly knows you. It is easy to blog about the things of God, you can claim to be anything over the internet. It’s another thing entirely for a person to see your daily walk.

I know of a pastor, who calls forward a woman to pray for others, who is living a life laden with sin. All this is done before her unsaved family members, whom she preaches to about their sin. This woman is not a "new" Christian, this woman has claimed to be "saved" for years, yet she lives like the devil himself. She bares no fruit of the Holy Spirit in her life at all. I use her as an example just to show you, the lack of discernment amongst leadership. I have seen many a pastor put sinners in positions of leadership, or commend them within congregations, and consider them pillars of the church, when they don't even love God.

Now you may say, "Well, Jesus had pity on the woman at the well." Yes He did, and he told her that He did not condemn her, but that she was to, "Go and sin no more". Jesus came to bring sinners to REPENTANCE...That means that they are to turn from their sins, not continue to live in them .

This particular woman I mentioned, is not the first example I have personally witnessed over the years. It is so sad, because not only is she lost, she is a huge stumbling block to her own unsaved family, and she is in danger of hell fire. I have personally witnessed her sinful behavior. Her pastor either has no discernment at all, or he knows nothing about church discipline, which we discussed in yesterdays blog. This woman causes confusion with in the body of the church she attends, because the saved and unsaved alike, who know this woman's life, observe this treatment of her by the pastor, and are confused, and some babes in Christ have even grown bitter.

A little leaven can encroach upon a congregation and cause great harm, as can a root of bitterness.

It is a sad thing that many times when church leaders are told of the danger that a soul is in, they are labeled a hater of the brethren, or a dissembler, or they are dismissed as to judgmental. I find it no coincidence, that when one speaks against the sin of homosexuality, one is labeled a homosexual hater, and when one speaks out against the false Roman Catholic doctrine, one is labeled a Catholic hater-neither is the Truth. Those who love The Truth, share it because they love the sinner.

Anyone who is bound by sin, has no place being asked publicly, to pray for others, or be put in a position of leadership within the body. Just because a person may make a public display of so called "Spirituality" by speaking in tongues, or seem knowledgeable of the things of God, is no reason to believe their witness. Saints we must try the spirits, that includes the spirits of people. Tongues, is not a measure of spirituality. The fruit in ones life is the measure of “spirituality”. This type of person needs prayer, and council, and rebuke for their life style, not acceptance of it, not justification of it. They need to be put out of the congregation if they refuse to turn from their sin.

Many within the church body have the ability to fool the undiscerning pastors, but they cannot fool God.

I once attended a church, where a man’s sexual sins were covered, he ended up being murdered. I have attended a church where a blind eye is turned to every sin that the family who runs the church does, and the true saints are condemned for the smallest of things. But not to be concerned saints, for God shall judge, and when we see His judgment we will understand perfectly why it has come.

I have witnessed churches condone Masonic members, as board members, and leaders in the churches. I have seen absolute denial, whilst these Masonic members say, “Oh we don’t go to meetings any more”, but they boast outside of the churches of the times they still flash their Masonic rings to police officers to get out of traffic tickets…. Many pastors refuse to speak against the Masonic lodge at all, they are perfectly happy to remain ignorant as to the doings of the Masonic lodge and its members.

Many Shepherds are blind saints, they are blind! And we know saints that if the blind lead the blind they shall both fall into the ditch, into the eternal abyss.

I have witnessed many dreadful things within the body over the years, and it is heart breaking. To condone sin, is not doing the sinner a favor, it is not showing love, it is setting the sinner up for a curse from Almighty God. I thank God that He has chastised me and given me space over the years to repent of my sins, but the days are growing shorter, and it is past time to repent, and turn from our wicked ways saints.

Again I tell you those who refuse to rebuke the sinner, and those who condone sin, are in sin themselves.... but beware also those who love to rebuke the sinner -when they have unrepentant sin in their own lives GOD is NO FOOL !!!

His Sheep Know His Voice!


Was there discipline in the early church, or was everyone left to their sins, that God may clean them up when He got ready?

How was discipline handled within the early church?

If there is one thing that I have noticed over the years since I got saved, it is the fact that there are many teachers, and saints who conveniently over look certain scriptures, because quite frankly they just don’t fit their doctrine or agenda. (I am not referring to those babes who are yet ignorant of the full truth of God’s Word.)

Let’s look through 1 Corinthians 5: 1-13
1. It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.
2. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

There is no longer any sorrow for sin, only excuses for it, there are no tears of repentance shed, instead there is stench filled pride. It is nothing for people to shack up and go to church together every Sunday, completely unashamed, with no one saying a word, because there is more than enough sin to go around. We cannot condemn sin in the life of another, when there is sin in our own lives, even thieves have a code of conduct as do sinners.

3. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
4. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5. To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

In other words such a person is better off delivered into the destroying hands of Satan, that they might be brought to their knees and cry out in repentance before God, and receive salvation.

Many love to pull the "Judge not" card, to further excuse their sin, they are in jeopardy, because they do not desire to forsake their sin, they want to cling to it!

6. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

Many can be affected adversely, by the sins of others, what ever those sins may be. This is how luke warmness sets into a congregation. Some may say, well a little of this or a little of that doesn't really hurt. This is the same lie that Satan perpetrated on Eve, "Thou shalt not surely die”….Satan is a liar, and all those who hide and excuse sin amongst the brethren are of their father the devil.

A Open Note to the Earthly Shepherds

What do His sheep require of you Pastor?
To give us the truth, to help keep us on the straight and the narrow path.
Don’t tell us were ok, when we know we are not.
Don’t tell us you are speaking for Him, because we know "His" voice.

Saints of God, we really don’t need anyone to tell us we are sinning, because if we belong to God we know when we are sinning, because the Holy Spirit convicts us. We don’t need to seeks man’s council looking to be told, “Oh your fine, God understands your weaknesses, He overlooks your sin, He knows your just struggling along.”
Saints, there is no more time for that attitude, the Lord is soon to return. We are soon to meet our maker, whether by death or by being alive and remaining at His return.
We might not want it, but we need someone who says, “Look I know you’re struggling, but you can get the victory in Christ, let’s pray together, let’s see what the Word has to say about your situation, because you know if you keep on this path the end will not be good.”
We are commanded to exhort one another daily, and even the more so as we see the day of the Lord approaching.

7. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
8. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9. I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10. Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Covetousness is rife within the church, idolatry is also, and railing, families are in turmoil, and drunkenness is increasing, so are other addictions, and extortion is clear from the pulpit to the pews.

The sipping saints, who set the example to those who may stumble into alcoholism, will be held accountable before God. It is better to crucify the flesh and never take a drink, than to set a bad example for one who may fall into alcoholism.
Millions of church goers are on Prozac or Valium or some other mind numbing drug...anything to take them out of their present reality-the "Take me to my happy place" mentality, none are looking to Christ for deliverance. None are looking to Christ to be their sustainer their all in all, their deliverer. We are in a sorry state.
Look saints, if we faint in the day of adversity our strength is small. Let me tell you saints, few leaders leaders today have the guts to tell you the truth, because they want to be your friend, they want your money they want your adulation, they have their own agenda. Make no mistake they shall be judged.

Having been a sinner, I know the fact and the reason that anyone takes a drink, let’s be real, it is to get a buzz, to escape reality, it is a sedative. It should be for those in intense grief or those dying. Let’s not lie about these things. It is better to abstain from such things, lest we fall into condemnation. It is much easier to take the world into the church and incorporate it, than it is to leave the world behind.

Now I know full well that I shall take a beating from some, who will call me legalistic, that is fine, because I will not stand with you before God, and tell you I loved you, without having proved it to you on earth first.

Am I become your enemy because I tell you the TRUTH?

To borrow a phrase "Truth is hate to those who HATE the TRUTH!
When we love someone we tell them the truth, if they do not accept that truth, then that is on their own head, but you are not guilty of their blood on your hands.

12. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13. But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

I tell you of a truth saints, that one who makes excuses for the sins of others, has unrepentant knowing sin in their life, and God will sooner or later expose that sin for all to see.
Hate sin saints, and keep repentant before God, bring your bodies into subjection, and resist the devil and he shall flee from you.

Yes God does do the cleaning of us, the purifying of us, but He needs a willing vessel.
We can be that willing vessel, or we can come the hard way, and saints I don't want to have to witness anyone, come the hard way, or be cast out.
May we all continue to grow in the Grace and the Kowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ!
