The Children of Disobedience

I heard a certain preacher today on the news, talk of how Jesus was a prophet, how people need to be set free, how the government needs to address their needs, how Jesus said "I have other sheep which are not of this fold", using this scripture to justify that Muslims will enter heaven by keeping their current belief system, by suggesting that this scripture is the portal where all whether they accept that Jesus is the way the truth and the life or not, can enter into Heaven.

Lies, half truths, deception. Anyone with half an ounce of discernment can see that while this man talks of peace, his heart is set on fire with murderous hatred and prejudice. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. There is no godly humility in this man who pretends to speak for God, while seeking to incite those in our society who have hearts as his. He speaks of unity, while working to divide. He complains about things which are the result of sin, while refusing to condemn the sin itself which is the root cause of the problem. This man lives an affluent lifestyle while condemning others who do likewise. This man is plainly a child of disobedience.

Oh dear, haven't we so called Christians learned anything in all these years. When a child of God is saved, he is set free, he does have liberty, in Christ. In the midst of persecution and tribulation and trials he can still be free and have peace in his heart.
It is not the governments job to take care of the christian, it is God's job. When that child of God is sold out to serve the Lord then He takes care of His own, even through famine, even unto death.

Jesus/Yeshua, is the only means by which man can enter into the Kingdom of God, many may not like this fact, but it is a fact that is set for all eternity, and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus/Yeshua is Lord..Amen

Many today live as if there were no God, many live as if Jesus/Yeshua were never raised from the dead. They, so called Christians as well, live as if God is dead and has no concern for the affairs of men. They believe that He doesn’t care, He doesn’t see, He will not respond to gross wickedness.

Surely the spirit of the prince of the air is at work in the children of disobedience today, in a greater way than I have ever personally experienced.

I have never heard as horrific sins in the lives of people world wide as I am hearing these days. If one were not to trust the Lord, the abomination of these sins is enough to cause a person to loose hope that there will ever be justice in this world.

It’s not that God does not desire to change the world and rid it of sin, it’s that people do not want change, they do not want to turn from their sin. The greatest sins are affecting children, the most vulnerable amongst us. The many perversions, the incest, the rape, the sodomy, the murder being perpetrated on the most innocent amongst us is totally revolting, an abomination, and worthy of the severest of God’s judgment. Parents using their own children to fulfill the evil lust of their flesh, such things ought not to be so. Parents are killing their own flesh and blood for convenience and the love of money.

We are not a civilized World, we have become base, debauched and depraved. We are fit for nothing but the fires of hell, where there shall be weeping and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

People live as if we have many days ahead, many years ahead, they see no trouble coming to this land of America. The trouble is already here, church you better be ready, your lamps better be filled, you better have an intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus/Yeshua, for there is coming an hour in which that is all that will sustain you, for our wickedness, and the cries of the innocent have reached the portals of Heaven. We have become as Sodom and Gomorah. Even the earth shall vomit out her inhabitants.

It is past time for the church, the so called saints of God to cry out on behalf of the innocent…I have seen the church rise to the occasion only to fall away the moment their earthly kingdoms are threatened. The love of money, the love of power, the love of the world and all its comforts, for the majority of so called Christian leaders today, is more of a concern. God is paid lip service, “Look at all our good works” they shall say, and God shall say, “Depart from me I never knew you, for all your works you have done to be seen of men, and your hearts have been far from me, therefore I shall pick your calamities. Pestilance, famine, sword, plagues, shall all come upon you.”

As it says in Isaiah 66: 4:3b-4
….“Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
4I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”

Ephesians 2:2-3
2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 5:3-12
3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
4Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
7Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Colossians 3:1-8
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

1 John 37:-10
7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

From the priest to the pastor, to those of the congregation, all are corrupt, none seek truth, all seek their own gain.

It is surely a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Let them then that need to repent and turn from their sin, do so while there is yet time. It is not enough just to repent, one must turn from their sin. We need to draw, near to God, resist the devil and then he will flee.
We must love not our lives unto death saints....the crowns go to the overcomers, that we may lay them at His feet..Amen!

Spiritual Wickedness In High Places

I don’t know about you saints, but I feel a heaviness in my spirit. I feel the struggle that is going on in the heavenlies. The struggle against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkeness in this world, against “spiritual wickedness in high places”.

We are in the final battle saints, we are in the final battle for our faith and for our souls, the end is drawing ever nearer.

We have a potpourri of things to believe in and a minion of religions to follow, and leaders just waiting to pounce upon unwitting, unstable, unlearned souls. If you’re looking to follow a man or a woman, there is one on practically every corner just waiting for their next recruit.

As wickedness increases, the wicked become bolder with their ungodly assertions. They announce their plan of attack against the Almighty God of Heaven, His children and His written word.

Oh the pomposity and audacity of those who purport to speak for God and Christ, for there is no fear of God in their hearts. In vain do they worship Him, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men.

How appropriate that the head of the Roman Catholic Church, a political figure a religious figure, should be on the soil of these United States as I type these words.
He heads up a massive and idolatrous following, who look to him, to speak for God and Mary.

It is not enough for man to seek God for himself he thinks he needs a mediator. If the unsaved millions only knew, Christ is our mediator, our one true intercessor and only High Priest. He shed His blood for our sins, He rose again, He is Alive…not dead, we serve a living God. He is not confined to our minds, or to a mere man made communion wafer. He is Alive!!!

There are many today who purport to speak for Christ, many who prophesy, “Thus saith the Lord”, “The Lord Says,” yet they speak a vision or a word of their own hearts. They set themselves up above reproach, unable to be questioned. They are set in the way of their own man made doctrine.

As it was then (old testament, new testament) so it is now, many have a word they say from the Lord, yet the Lord is not in their word.

We have 400 plus children removed from a false religious commune in Texas, because of men who have perverted the gospel to fit their own desires and feed the lusts of their flesh. They have chosen to believe a lie and be damned.

Then we have a politicians’ pastor (who is currently running to become president of this country) who purports to speak for God. Who spews the same type of prejudiced hatred that he attributes to those whom he perceives as his enemies. He has led thousands onto the path of destruction.

All prejudice is evil and from hell. No man or woman should be judged by the color of their skin. God made us all in his image.

Then we have a well known celebrity who denies Jesus Christ on the airwaves, and is on u-tube for all to hear. She has no fear of God, she does what she thinks is right in her own eyes, and is leading unstable souls on the path of destruction. None of her good deeds will be a ransome for her soul.

Broad is the way that leads to destruction, straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life, and sadly there be few who shall find that way, and want to walk therein.

Surely there is spiritual wickedness in high places, and millions dance to the tune that the various pipers play, because they have not received a love for the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

There are those who go to supposed “spirit filled” churches that I personally have knowledge of, who live in homosexuality, who live in adultery, who are members of the Masonic lodge, who lie, who commit fornication, who molest children, and some of this category, even pastor churches, and sit on church boards.
Who are these people serving? Not Jesus Christ, they are putting Him to an open shame; they are serving their dead flesh.
This saints, is why God’s Word says that judgment will begin at the house of God. You can sweep sin under the carpet in your houses of worship, and hide it from men, but you cannot hide it from the face of God. Gentiles our time is about up!

God created Israel, He gave the Jews their borders, He made her a nation. He gave her victory over her enemies. And we have a leaders, political and religious, working to make Israel give up her God given right to her land, all in the name of peace. When it is well known, (because the enemies of Israel make no secret of it) Israel’s enemies do not want peace. They want to drive all the Jews into the ocean, and eradicate Israel from the maps of the world.

I felt as if I heard the angels saying to the Lord today, “Oh Lord what did you die for, none are taking heed.”

And I felt the utter frustration, the burden. Oh Lord what will it take for us to awaken to the day and hour in which we are living…personally saints, I just don’t know.

This is why Jesus himself said “When I come will I find faith.”

To those of you who love the Lord with all your heart, don't give up. Love Him unto death, and you shall receive the crown of life. He is worth it all saints, He is worth it all and worthy to be Praised, All Glory to His Holy Name!

Ephesians 6:10-13
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

UnGodly Hocus Pocus

Can Christians, through prayer, change the purpose of an idol, from that which is bad to something which is good, and is it scriptural?

Just when I thought I’d heard it all folks….I have one for you that takes the cake for now.

We have a large statue in our city which was made by and Indian, and stands at the fork of the two rivers running through our city. It is called "The keeper of the plains" and has its hands raised heaven ward.
It has… up until now been considered by Christians in this city to be an vain idol.
Recently a certain group of prayer “so called” intercessors went and prayed by the statue and now claim that this statues purpose has been divinely changed and it now worships the one true God.

Now folks this is not made up. Does this all sound too daft (idiotic) or is it just me?

Now tell me some one, first of all how does a lump of metal have any ability to worship anything in the first place?

This for me is on par with an incident that took place here back in the early 1990’s, when a woman who had been given an account of the mark of the beast, went to her priest seeking counsel as to what she should do in the circumstance that she took the mark of the beast, he told her not to worry because he could just absolve her of that.

Now folks I am telling you we have some loon’s running our chicken houses these days. Our so called "spiritual superiors" have simply forsaken the written word of God and are making their own doctrines. I don’t know what “spirit” these people are listening to but honey it’s not the Holy Spirit of God.
Honey I don’t care if you take your statues and baptize them in the river Jordan, they are not going to be clean and they are not going to be accepted by God as HOLY ENOUGH TO WORSHIP HIM…HELLO

First of all let’s check the Scriptures:

Leviticus 26:1-2
Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land
, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
2Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

Oh so God is not for idols, or graven images.
What did God say He was going to do with the idols of Egypt, change their purpose?

Ezekiel 30:6-19
Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.
7And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.
8And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
9In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
10Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.
11He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.
12And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I the LORD have spoken it.
13Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and I will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.
14And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan, and will execute judgments in No.
15And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I will cut off the multitude of No.
16And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses daily.
17The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword: and these cities shall go into captivity.
18At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity.
19Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

God cleans house, he doesnt just paint over folks ...he comes as a destroyer of idols.

Now what did Asa say to his mom when she made an idol, oh now mom you should do that, lets just pray over this thing and it will then worship God?

1 Kings 15:9-13
And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.
10And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
11And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
12And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron

And what did Manasseh do with the idols in the house of God, rededicate them to God?

2 Chronicles 33:12-16
And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,
13And prayed unto him: and he was entreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.
14Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah.
15And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.
16And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.

Idols and graven images are to have no part in the worship of the one true Holy Almighty God, He is not flattered by our attempt to excuse or cover the sins of our cities.

This is where were at folks:
Isaiah 66:1-4
Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
2For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
3He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
4I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

1 Corinthians 10:20-22
But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

To pray a prayer to absolve a lifeless statue of its original intended purpose to worship mother earth, or what ever other god, is lunacy, not a Holy act of redemption, and cleansing. God bless you all…look up for your redemption draweth nigh. Oh, and be on guard my brothers and sisters, there is much done in the name of the Holy Spirit these days that is nothing but ungodly hocus pocus. Truly we are weak and without the true power of the Holy Ghost, we have forsaken the truth of God's word, our faith is in our own works, and we shall perish if this remains so.
