Hate is Sin and Sin Powers Evil

HATE …

&

THE TRUE PERPETRATORS

 

 Power-Evil-Hate-Fear 02

 

“You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.  Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.  Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.”         psalms 97: 10 – 12. 

The situation we find ourselves in today, is certainly a vast spiderweb of issues, however, the most pressing is deduced to the hatred where the haters hate each other and it is in this evil hate that we see the extreme evil that has been perpetrated against the citizens of the United States.  Nonetheless, evil is a very powerful ally in our stand for nationalism and freedom.  Ah, yes, evil wrought by Satan himself, as he dances among the people of a Christian nation.  The United States was not the only Christian nation, however, its founding, and Constitution were rooted in Christianity and the Christian moral values, and integrity of the Protestant Christian, seeking freedom from religious persecution.  The tyranny of the Kings and Queens of western Europe, oppressing the protestants.  Therefore, there has been a war waged against God’s free people, a free nation which was plagued with evil even before we started. Slavery, inequality of women and common folks, greed, and power.  Nearly the same thing in religion, race, women’s equality, greed and power. And about the time that Andrew Jackson ran a second time for office and formed the Democratic party from the Democrat-Republican party because the Whig Party was strong enough to have the Democrat-Republican split the vote in Congress where the President was elected at that time.

But it was during that time that evil really got moving strong among the voting class or congress, evil with a capital ‘E’ has been working against our free nation ever since.  Corruption in the hearts of men (and women) has been separating and dividing, isolating the weak, devouring the mind and hearts of the people stripping them of self-esteem; turning morals and integrity into a negative trait to the delusional mind controlled by evil.

Where the rubber meets the highway, evil is the single cause of all that is wrong with us today.  there is not an issue today that cannot be equated to evil, and the ruler of the darkness of this age.  The darkness of this age began with Satan’s weaponizing the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ and for some time now man has character has been eaten away by the Seven Deadly sins, sins that are part of our human nature, indulging in sin not only destroys our relationship with the Lord, but with each other, and in our darkness we turn on each other.

Like a pack of ravaged starving wolfs will turn on each other, weakest first.  The sins are”…

In Prov. 6:16-19, “ there are things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:

Haughty eyes, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, A false witness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

The seven deadly sins commonly referred to at this point in time, are: Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride. & Lust.

 

“These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”  By Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776, The Crisis.

 

Today, we are not faced with the same crisis, although, we are fighting a battle for the freedom of our people.  In 1776 General Washington and his citizen army was fighting for the fledgling nation’s freedom from a tyrant monarchy, freedom and constitutional sovereign Republic.  Today, we fight, not with lead ball, at least so far; nonetheless, there is plenty of violence during the protests and various liberal groups.  However, our fight today is motivated by the same thing, the same freedom, and the security of our sovereign Republic against the socialists to make us a socialist union.

Eph. 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” 

Evil, yes there is evil everywhere under the sun, and we tend to not pay attention to its progression; for in order to notice and pay attention it has to come near the surface from time to time, or outright exposed.  Exposure of the evil only happens when God the Holy Spirit alerts the Christian to the evil by way of our values, principles, which God instilled in us and in our nation’s founders, our Constitution.  It has always been there, right from wrong, good from evil.

Our nation didn’t need any special “civil liberties” laws to become breeding lots for racist violent hatred and division.  The Constitution and the Bible would have been just fine.  It would have gotten rid of the Jim Crow laws, held people accountable for their ideologies.  Didn’t need a separate law to rid the country of the curse of evil slavery, that was being done before Lincoln became president.  Guess the politicians should have just stayed with protecting the Constitution, the citizenry, our sovereign freedoms, all the train-wrecks along the way would have been sorted out without all the hatred and discord.

It is amazing how Americans of all colors and persuasion, come together and help one another in a time of emergency and need, yes once upon a time, the average Americans looked out for one another, but as evil progressed we lost a lot of our national integrity, our values, our Christian faith and our Christian responsibility to our fellow man.  There is a great evil power breaking lose in our nation, an evil global socialism.  Over the past four decades or more it has been swimming close to the surface being exposed from time to time.  However, with the election of President Trump, evil knew it would be exposed more so than with Obama’s foolish attempt to complete the evil conspiracy to make this, our beloved Republic of the United States, the center of the North American Socialist Union, surrendering our Constitution to the Global Socialist Union, The United Nations.

President Trump became the object of evil hatred from socialists and progressive Republicans, and he has exposed evil and corruption in every nook and cranny, or should I say that the evil has exposed itself and to an unexpected degree through the manufactured hate for President Trump, it has involved all the vile evil groups that the socialists have been enlisting for scores of decades.  I don’t have to numerate them all, but the leader has been socialism disguised as liberalism, and the Democrat Party.  Who reached out to them for votes and loyalty, what they got was exactly what they wanted as they reached out to a generation who simply wanted acceptance or notoriety, perhaps those that have brought them into the fold, have shown them something they longed for and had not received, with the war against the church, most of the young people failed to find the unconditional love and acceptance of Jesus.  That experience could have shined a totally different light on the darkness that was reaching out to them.

Could it be, that these misguided young people who are displaying such disgusting vile and radical behavior as they portray such evil hatred for our President, our nation, and now the supporters of Trump are not totally heartfelt in what they represent?  Absolutely, it shows in their uninformed and deceptive rantings; they could not be as dumb as they sound, or could they?  As far fetched as it may seem, they might be with the public educations they receive now, unless they were home-schooled, or private faith-based  schooling, here not only do they learn required curriculum, but they learn values, integrity, responsibility and consequences of bad choices.  They learn right from wrong, they learn about godly character, and patriotism  and American History the good and bad of it, civic responsibility mutual respect, curriculum and essential social skills that will give a solid foundation to their lives.  Unlike public education that has became no more than a propaganda mill and brain washing institution, oh our higher education does provide excellent academics and scientists, bankers, and candlestick makers.  But with an evil socialist soul; amoral with no guidance in life except what evil has in store.

There is a host of psychological problems that cause our young people to seek acceptance in all the wrong places.  However, what is done to such a large number of young people for five generations, hopefully will not take five generations to fix.  I know Jesus can do it in a blink of an eye, but the subject must first own their sinfulness, and see the need to be accepted by the only one who really counts.  His acceptance is unconditional, cannot be bought, or earned with good works, it is entirely free – except it will cost you your old life in exchange for a new one.

When God created mankind, he created us a spiritual being, and where He tells us about evil in heavenly place, He is not telling about the throne-room of God, but He is telling us about the invisible world about us called the supernatural.  We are not humans going through a spiritual experience, what we are, is spiritual beings going through the human experience.  And as such we all experience a war, a war between God and Satan – good and evil, sin and righteousness.

The sin of hate, divisions, lying, sexual perversions, fornication, adultery, anger, murder, all empower evil, give evil a extraordinary over God’s creation.  Through the natural desires of our human nature, and one of the strongest from infancy, is love and acceptance with the parents and siblings as being part of the family.  Christianity builds and instills that love within the family, but for five generations evil and darkness in high places, has waged an unsuspecting war on the families sending in greed, lust, putting both parents to work just to keep up.  Divorce is over half of Christian marriages while children are still young, our children are suckered into all sorts of groups where they are accepted.

Christians and patriots are now being called to action.  God will enable the willing to stand firm and return to the absolute truth of our living God, The Bible, the Word of God.  We are the caretakers of this land that God gave our founders and immigrant Christian forefathers.  Could it be, that God is getting ready to show the world once more that this is a Christian nation?  Could be, yes we have messed it up enough falling to evil.

Communism USA?

FIGHT AGAINST SOCIALISM IN THE USA
FIGHT AGAINST COMMUNISM IN THE USA

prepare to accept

R.S. Helms 7-29-2019 Bob’s Opinion

The fight against Communism is not simply against the leaders of the Socialist Left, the Progressives of the Right, but against the United Nations’ Agenda’s 21 & 2030. Agenda 21 is a non-binding, action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. It is a product of the Earth Summit (UN Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. In 1995, George HW Bush signed onto the actual Agenda 21, and as conservative Americans started to ask questions about Agenda 21, the socialists immediately tagged anyone who asked questions about Agenda 21 as a “conspiracy theorists” and under the delusion that the Agenda and the UN were not actually good for the Nation, that is after George HW Bush founded and put in place the North American Fair Trade Agreement, and as we have discovered it was a disaster for our trade deficit along with other trade agreements we made with other countries like Japan, China, and the EU.

When people started to read the whole of the official Agenda 21 document printed and put up on their website, we learned there were some things happening in our bureaucracy, (now called the “Deep State or Shadow Government”), people started to connect dots, of course we were all ridiculed as CONSPIRACY THEORISTS, and silenced a big many who were doing research. Research that has continued and not until Clinton did the research reveal just how bad the UN and Agenda’s 21 & 2030 actually are for our sovereign nation.

In January, when Agenda 2030 officially kicks in the UN will have the power to supersede and usurp authority over our Constitution, where it may wish to keep us in compliance to the Agenda and that would mean no border wall, no immigration laws to stop “migrant” humans from wherever to come to the United States and receive education, healthcare, welfare, vote, and we would have no say. No illegal aliens, they would become migrant peoples. One more reason to stop funding to the UN and to remove the UN from our nation.

Will the scenario happen? Perhaps, Perhaps the biggest indication that it will happen is how radical the socialists and progressives are behaving on social media and in front of the TV cameras. It would seem we have a war going on within the Democratic congress, a war for the media, for everyone to see, one squad of socialists against the other, or so it may seem. Seems that way on the surface, however, that is not what is actually taking place in the DNC and the Socialists in the Swamp.

Once the latter days of the socialist globalization of the United States, started with FDRs UN Charter and slowly working its way through time corrupting politics and creating a massive bureaucracy, (Deep-State/Shadow-Government), and was in a large part operating under the radar as there were several that kept the socialist waiving the patriots flag. But then during the cold war, the new generation came along, the ones who were rallying under a flag of liberalism.

These were the ones who protested against war and the military. They began their opposition toward the end of the Korean war but, not like they did during Viet Nam, the demonizing and degradation of our military servicemen and women and the nation were most vile. The flag of liberalism was at full mast and the delusional, the people without any purposeful direction for their lives became voters, and whoever they made their hero would campaign on liberal extreme policies, promises, and ideologies, unfortunately, most conservative voters didn’t like being attacked over their patriotism, values, and policies. The liberal adaption of the Alinsky rules worked very well for them, and still does, but with the creation of “Acorn” Bill Ayres and the socialists owned the ‘community Activists’ and ‘community organizers’ and their relentless ridicule against conservatives, Christians, until most slipped into the shadows and a good number of Christians adopted liberal and liberation theology to avoid ridicule for their Christian values.

As that cancer grew it took in much more than the Christians, it took over patriots, everyday Mainstreet citizens, of every creed, color, and sex, it took over the schools, families, white-collar middle-class and even the ones trapped in the ghettos, with promises of making life better, of bringing down big business, and gender-specific normal citizens. They took the honor and integrity of legal immigrants who suffered in the waiting lines to legally be here and pursue their own American dream for them and their families. I don’t blame people to hide in the shadows, or joining a march for equality with their countrymen, with their religion, with people of color, which we all are people of color, except for a true Albino no color except we all bleed red.

We live in a nation that is a melting pot for the world, people looking for freedom, a job and their own slice of the American dream. We live in a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values, principles, and faith. The United States is a sovereign constitutional Republic with a government-run as a democracy BY the People, FOR the People. A Nation governed by a Constitution not politicians or political parties, not a President, not a Dictator and the only King we have is Jesus Christ – Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Every knee, on earth, and heaven will bow before Him and the choir will sing HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is the King.

The United States is the greatest nation in the history of the world, we are a sovereign nation with our own laws, and we do have an obligation to vet and accept immigrants, and we have laws that manage how many and from where they come so that we stay a sovereign nation. So, now the left once again will call me a racist, bigot and all the rest and any new ones they can invent to be used by their puppet brainwashed zombies who ridicule and bully conservatives, not including the paid mobs who show up at rallies, demonstrations and college campuses to bully conservatives and attempt to intimidate the American citizen patriots and biblical Christians into silence. So far, it has worked out somewhat successful for them in their war against our Nation and our Holy God. Now as I indicated I will spend some time with the Agendas 21 & 2030.

As I mentioned, socialism has had a long growing tenure since the forming of the United Nations, slowly spreading out like a drop of molasses on the head of a pin. Yes, it has taken over many nations of the world and with the western world slowly being swallowed up with socialism lite.

What it boils down to is the one-world governance, all being done in the name of peace, and sustainable development as we drag the most impoverished dictatorships, and poor communist, and yes, we have Africa who got rid of the Apartheid took over governments of the continent but they shut out the whites in Government prematurely before they could replace leadership and upper echelon. The outcome? They slipped into a hole and socialism set in to occupy the void, guess who was waiting? The warlords, the bad fellows of Islam. The Muslim Caliphate has made great gains throughout Africa, with the near takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood, It is still struggling because it is a Muslim Nation, but trying to at least be a nation although mostly socialist. Most of the continent of Europe is socialist and has allowed the borderless countries to be overrun by the Caliphate So it is not just the socialist global union of the United Nations, but a Muslim Caliphate.

One might ask how socialism has become a center stage with most politicians of all persuasions have taken on socialism and now they are showing up in congress even in past presidents, but not until Obama did it get out of hand and out in the open as it is now. But we ask? How did people vote them into office? Answer: We allowed it to happen, we allowed socialism in at the local polling booth, and before. It started with a tried and tested communist infiltration method, the method is found in Alice Bailey’s 10-point strategy, although she was a Satanist, Alice and her husband founded Lucis Trust in the early 20s and Alice used the trust to publish her books and established World Good Well at the UN and World Network of Servers. But of course, her 10-point strategy was inspirational to the United Nations. Saul Alinsky certainly was impressed.

Saul Alinsky the “Father of Community Organizing” and eight of his “How to Create a Socialist State.” And Obama’s hero, Saul a communist, had a mind-blowing success and fame in organizing communities during the Great Depression, but in some of his “how-to” lists for radical socialists he is best known for “Rules for Radicals” and the aforementioned “How to Create a Socialist State”. The Un took Bailey’s 10-point Strategy with some of Alinsky’ s ideologies and added some of their own and added some of the covert operations from the Cold War and put them into the mechanics of the Agenda 21 & 2030.

Some of the strategies that have been being used simultaneously in most cases. For example, remove God or anything to do with God from our public education as a starting point which started the removal of God from all public facilities, simultaneously removal or the covert evil destruction of moral values by simple ridicule from various groups, say the more confrontational amoral groups such as the homosexuals, Atheists, beatniks of the “beat generation” of the 50s and early 60s which gave way to the Hippies, rockers, hard rock, and drug culture. All of these subcultures railed against the conservative Christian mocking and ridiculing faith and especially Christianity.

So, establishing nonconformist – free-spirited – socialism (lite) and anti-family trend that captured the hearts of the children and young people of our land. Of course, it affected our colleges and universities in time with what we simply called liberals, while of course the Southern Democrats and the Jim Crow laws of the South, forcing the Democratic administration of John Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy to yield to the conservative preacher Dr. Martin Luther King’s civil rights movement in the South, to force integration largely in the Southern public education system and in the housing and equal opportunity across the nation. If you should notice that it has been liberalism of the Democrat Party that claimed the victory over segregation or the Southern Jim Crow laws, when it was Democrats fighting against the conservative Republicans who wanted to put a stop to it all way before Kennedy moved troops to Alabama to force George Wallace to put equality into the school system, the workforce, and in the public square. Even though the biggest racist of the day was Johnston who was the one who took credit for the “Civil Rights Act” by simply putting his name on it and signed it as President. Why? legacy and votes.

Now it seems some of our black Americans are waking up to decades of false promises, lies and the delusion that the Democrats are their salvation and offering social justice, and liberation theology to go along with the strong Christian faith they have, or rather once had.

However, because of liberalism in the Christian church, it started to move ridicule of God and American values to ridicule of the Bible and orthodox Christians, who believe the Bible to be inerrant – infallible – and is God’s revelation (exposure of himself and who He is). and is meant to the teaching of born again (fundamental New Testament), Christians who regardless of lateral teaching from Christian Sunday school teachers, Bible studies, and Seminary Professors, we believe the Holy Spirit is the ultimate interpreter and teacher of Scripture. I refuse to allow myself to be intimidated by a bunch of delusional socialist operatives who write the scripts for the “community Organizers” like the UN hopeful Barrack Obama.

Education and control of our children, destroy the national Christian family structure, free sex, and abortion, make divorce easy and legal, free people from the concept of married for life. Make Homosexuality alternative lifestyle, debase art – make it run mad, use media to promote and change the mindset, create an interfaith movement. Get governments to make these laws and get the church to endorse these changes. Notice how well Baily’s stuff has been implemented into our nation right on cue.

Some of the Alinsky socialists’ activities coincide nicely with what Agenda 21 & 2030 are doing and have been doing since 1992? Look at our nation today, decades of American blindness and denial has been Satan’s weapon against the citizens, slowly intimidating, deceiving and relentless ridicule against God and country pushing conservatives into a “guilt” mindset, so as Alinsky would advise radical socialist “community organizers”, from the infamous ACORN, ACLU, NAACP, CAIR, LGBTQ, BLM, and other similar groups. Notice how all the radical protesters are extremely loud with their mouths gaping open and the jaw, the jaw is open to the point of dislocation as they scream vulgarities, hate speech and anti-American trash-talk.

With the left, the ideology of being louder, more obnoxiously hateful, and don’t stop or allow any response, is being a useful idiot for the purpose of enhancing the state of deep division of our diverse citizens on every front. That is a goal of the socialists and they don’t care how they achieve the goal, even if it means looking like a total hysterical clown. Which is what our elected leaders have been reduced to, especially on the left.
We know how much covert organizational expansion took place from the time of FDR’s UN Charter was signed by the 51 charter member nations just shortly after his death. Now, we have 293 plus observer nations, and a global socialist monster well on the path to becoming a one-world order or one-world government, of global citizens under the authority of international law, two classes of citizens elite, and commons.

First and foremost, you must read, in its entirety, Agenda 21 it is long, and you may prefer to read appropriate sections as you endeavor in the task to understand more of why we are in the mess that we are in. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030, careful examination of both documents will reveal much, especially as each of the goals are implemented and the various UN organizations and how the scheme of implementation occurs at the local level, the towns occur at the local level, the towns through the planning boards as they sign on to the UN sustainable development and adapt their plans.

With each village, county, state that signs on and with the global socialist representatives we send to Washington to represent us. It has taken some time, but we now stand at only an election or two and we will no longer be the sovereign constitutional United States of America the greatest nation in history and our downfall will be imminent.

Thanks for taking the time, perhaps, you can start your information journey?

Isaiah 5:1 – 30 for the Christian today.

 

 

 

Application of Isaiah 5:1— 7

The US crisis in politics and the Christian faith

 

good grapes 00

 

 

Isaiah 5:1—7 “Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so, He expected it to bring forth good grapes. But it brought forth wild grapes.

And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard, what more could have been done to My vineyard, what I have not done in it? Why then when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes?

And now, please, let me tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned; and break down its wall and it shall be trampled down. I will lay it waste; it shall not be pruned or dug, but there shall come briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain on it.”

For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are His pleasant plant. He looked for Justice, but behold, oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry for help.”

 

 

Please bear with me, as I run Isiah’s parable of the Lords Vineyard or Isiah’s song, past our inquiring minds. Or that is how mine started out, inquiring yes. After we have a glimpse into the Old Testament parable. First, the vineyard is Israel and the vinedresser (owner), and after God prepared and planted them in a perfect vineyard on a hill. Think about it, if God did so much in blessing Israel, it would stand to reason, that He would expect good fruit. However, He knew the nature of His people, He knew he would again be disappointed, and the fruit would be wild, or worthless, no good.

Fast forward and the application are not to Israel but to another nation He blessed a new nation for His Christian People. And over the process of over a century and a half that His choicest vines that He expected good fruit, again knowing our nature almost a third of the vines died and there is a vile evil organism slowly consuming additional vines in this great vineyard the United States of America.

It is my opinion that “Modernism,” Liberalism, Liberation Theology and “Social Justice,” Socialism, Communism, and the Democrat National Committee, the top echelon of the of the over-stuffed bureaucracy, which means every agency and department in the Federal Government is suspect of being managed by socialists or at least radical liberals and New Republican (progressive) RINO globalists.

I do realize that when linking various radical leftist groups that we run into a lot of ridicule by naming everyone a “Conspiracy Theorist” as we link and research radical groups, there is some very good sites that use the legal system to obtain credible documents from government agencies and through their own investigative resources that link the organizations in a web of other organizations and funding resources. There are some big names internationally, who donate to several foundations owned by a few big money people who fund or control hundreds of leftwing groups. Bringing your attention to the organized socialists have in place, what we use to call “connecting the dots” Politicians who are getting extremely wealthy by protecting the Shadow Government (Bureaucracy), politicians are protecting vile and violent paid marchers, thugs and rioters who are supported by global wealthy elite socialists through several front billionaire elite’s foundations. Foundations, that look like a spider’s web, all inner connected and difficult to follow its feeder sources that connect a whole network to its evil head.

It was not that difficult to discover for conservative investigators to find the money and follow the trail. We know that money came from several sources and for various reasons BLM (Black Lives Matters) riots with mayors and governors taking orders from Obama, for the police to stand down and let the riots play out. Let me say this all this has taken Satan a while to do what he has taught socialists, communists, and globalists that must be done in order to swing a nation to these ideologies.

One thing is to control what the schools teach in primary and secondary education, then control what is taught in higher education. Then control the press and information media. Then it is simple to teach what they want in order to control a whole generation. Control the children, take parents out of the picture except for babysitting, destruction of the family and family values. Sometime in the fifties or sixties, the American peopled were beguiled by a destroying demon to turn God’s people against Jesus and His principles.

Years ago I was developing a series of sermons based on what would cause people to follow the enticements of Satan, both, Christian and heathen, however the fault is not with the brainwashed heathens, but also of the Christians who have accepted liberal theology and liberation theology, and looking for a way for escape ridicule and targeting from the once social scumbags, now are proud of their rebellion against God, the nation, our Constitution and our way of life.

I have written a hundred or more sermons and articles on the Seven Sins, a couple is found here, fairly short ones concerning all the seven sins, and individually each sin and the Seven Churches of Asia Minor (Rev. 1-3). Sin, Satan’s very essence of life, sin is anything that separates us from the intimate relationship with Jesus. Not just the sins are written in the law but anything, anything that sidetracks us from the first commandment, to love God above all. If we fail that, then we will be easily enticed by any sort of sin, any sort of evil.

When God’s people who He planted in His vineyard started to worship other God’s … yes, even ourselves, our families, our jobs, money, friends, we become so involved in our world that we fail God, for whatever reason we fail our first commandment. We find that somewhere along the way we have put our daily Bible reading and devotions on the Sunday shelf, then for only a few hours a day, and all the ridicule of the world around us even from the politicians who we trust to do what they say over trusting God and his values. There are no good grapes.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Consider this: ‘all have sinned and come short of producing good grapes?’ Let’s get really honest with ourselves. This sort of self-honesty ranks among the very top in difficulty when it comes to self-evaluation. Liberal (progressive Christianity), has made a mockery of God’s Word, the Protestant Bible. They have mocked scripture and used it to accuse the saints, with paronomasia ridicule and one is “We are all Sinners,” from we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,

God is all love, and to love your neighbor as yourself, take care of the poor, and many others that are used by liberal Christians as well as liberal socialist political delusionary heathens when they misuse the Bible to ridicule and bully Christians. Somewhere along the way, Christians have gone to sleep on the job, the job of staying vigilant and the discernment of spirits, and after all, all that stuff about putting on the Armor of God is just for Sunday school children. No God does not make light of His Word be it in a loud and thunderous voice that shakes the pillars of the Temple or written as in the Bible. It is our obligation to know the warfare of the enemy, it is our obligation to be alert and ready to fight the spiritual battle.

Don’t tell yourself that spiritual warfare is not a vital part of producing good grapes. The owner of the vineyard actually doesn’t expect perfect grapes, just good grapes, He understands our limited growth, but what He is disappointed in is His choice vines not paying attention to their grapes. Some call me harsh, but I am used to stepping on carnal Christians, and if not carnal, some hide in the shadows praying that no one notices they are Christian for fear of ridicule for trying to live as much of a pleasing life for God as best they can and still be accepted by the worldly heathens who will turn and ridicule them and God for their faith.

Can’t say as I blame some of the vines, as their watchmen and caretakers have become afraid to preach sermons from the Bible, concerning sin, Satan, his demons and imps, they’re casting the evil delusions over heathens and putting fear in the hearts of the saints. Preachers, many of them, have sought an easy preaching ministry, in an easy church, where their main focus is to please the itching ears of the “money members” and went with the fraud of political correctness from the pulpit. They have played with the Word of God and fell asleep during their calling of watching and caring for their sheep, (vines).

Spiritual health is crucial to what type of fruit we as Christians produce. We absolutely require proper Bible Study and Biblical Sermons, and the Pastors need to understand and practice preaching the Word, the whole Word in the Spirit and truth, without regard to who is sitting in the pews then making it applicable to the congregation. The congregation must receive a wholesome and fit diet, to produce acceptable fruit. God told us of what He expected, “good grapes” and was disappointed by the “wild grapes.” God was not disappointed because the fruit was less than perfect, God does not expect perfection from His imperfect people, as was exemplified in Jesus, but He does expect our level best at being a Christian, and boldly give an account for the faith that is in us. If that means being ridiculed, beat down, or even die for our Jesus, that is the expected “good grapes.

Wake Up People!

So How Do We Wake People Up?

 

Wake up 03

 
I Wish I knew the answer to such an important and urgent question, but I must confess I don’t. That truly rests in the hands of God. God is still in control although it may seem like He is doing nothing, He is. In the case of conservatives who slumber, or perhaps, are simply cowering in a shadowy corner with millions of “evangelical” Christians who have a great time on social media complaining about the serious sins of the world, such as Homosexuals, Abortion, sexual misconduct of politicians, celebrities, TV and movie violence, fornication and who will fire a preacher for preaching against liberalism and socialism invading our nation and Church, for fear of losing the tax exempt for their congregation. I know what I am talking about, more than half of the big tithers would stop tithing if they could not claim it on their taxes, whatever happened to “give unto Caesar which is Caesars?”
Liberal Christianity has offered a safe place for the Christian congregation and many embraced liberal theology, and of course mega-churches started growing like weeds out of control. You because many preachers stopped preaching the Word of God and not addressing the issue of sin, some even went to preaching from the New Testament only, to avoid calling sin, S-I-N. Can you see why I have written several articles on the Seven Churches of Asia Minor (Rev. 1-3), along with some other Old Testament sermons especially dealing with sin and the Law, Law that Jesus told His Disciples that He had not come to abolish nor to change – not one tittle.
While Jesus came seeking the sinner, seeking with the grace of God and the gospel of repentance forgiveness of God, from all sin and unrighteousness. And like the Apostle Paul wrote, that without the Law we would have no sin, which is true, without the Law we would not know what sin is and what sin is not. But God gave the law that His people would be obedient to Him and to manage to live with each other and all of humanity.

The Ten Commandments were given so as the first four pertain to man’s relationship with God, the creator of all. The subsequent six pertain to man’s relationship to man, that we might live in peace with each other.
Because human nature is corrupt and sinful, we all have a nature filled with all sorts of desires or appetites for evil, and God has been the one who has attempted to offer a way from eternal damnation and the final estate of hell. I cannot preach enough on the love of God, and one of the reasons is how God loves us so much that He sacrificed His Son to fulfill the Law. But nearly half of “postmodern” Christianity, falling in after various interpretations of the Bible but not the versions which all say the same thing just in familiar English, personally it depends what my application is, with all versions, sin is still sin and in the United States, we once had moral values, integrity, and Christian freedom. Now we have chaos, hatred, all sorts of corruption and evil in our elected officials and in the leaders of liberal theological churches.

But Satan, yes Satan exists just as surely as hell. Satan, his devils, and demons cannot coexist with moral values, integrity, and people who are trying to live their Christian faith – all a constant threat to his work to claim souls and not all allow God to succeed reclaiming His creation to Himself. Satan has made great gains in the world and well should he have, after all, he is the prince of the air and controls the air and municipalities. It is Satan that walks to and fro upon the earth seeking those to devour and as Satan can make our lives miserable, he can only own those who follow him and those who reject God’s grace and reject the work of our Lord Jesus. Satan will never own the soul of a saved-born again Christian.

Now let’s get back to our beloved nation. Let me not be mistaken about the fact that the United States is and always has been a Christian nation, the one thing that our citizens need to understand really should reestablish, it has taken Satan over two centuries to convince, deceive, destroy the nation and the people in it. Speaking of Satan, I read an article I found in The Vigilant Citizen concerning the Satanic Temple, apparently, it is a well organized nontheistic religious and political activist group based in Salem Massachusetts and has chapters in 13+ states. Among putting a monument in the Rotunda of the Michigan State House, and Illinois on the Capital lawn, (all legal) and created an after-school program for children called “After School Satan.” It is up and running in cities across the U.S. including Atlanta, Los Angles, Salt Lake City, Pensacola, Washington D.C., Tucson, Springfield, Seattle, and Portland. I have not found the media outlets, but I will.

My problem with this is: How the officials let the Satanic Temple do legally what they will not allow Christians to do? As a matter of fact, they (officials) have banned crosses, Christian decorations, cross memorials in cemeteries – anything, anything at all that symbolizes Christian-Judeo religion, even had some private business’ remove them usually through some sort of lawsuit from an individual activist group who target Christian businesses. Satan has a big political foothold on our nation. Mainstream Media, Social Media platforms, and the political bias Judicial System.
Now, biblical Christianity has been under attack for decades, it is known as modernity or Modernism. Started early on during the late 19th and early century. It is a philosophical movement along with the cultural trend. Trends rising from wide-scale and far-reaching transformation in Western society. Industrialization grew cities into mega cities where they developed their own culture, their own free thinking and it spread with the help of our education system with the gentle propaganda, (At first), within the school administrators, Teacher’s Unions, and liberal state legislators.

We are experiencing a full-blown liberal public-school system, (In most part), and the loss of a generation. Under the façade of liberalism, we now have a liberal-socialism sweeping the nation and continuing to divide and remove our constitutional rights and freedoms. Brainwash the majority of two generations and socialism has an open door. No moral values, integrity, and Christianity (biblical Christianity), will be of no measurable consequence, except for Christians. And until Jesus Comes, we will probably be holding worship services in caves, but we will persevere in the might of the Lord Jesus.

Comcast Xfinity 200 plus channel and costs nearly as much a month with only one Christian channel, local affiliates of the MSM perhaps six or seven tolerable broadcasts and some oldies, the rest are ad channels milking the uninformed with junk. However, there is no option other than Dish which is nearly the same. Liberalism control what we are able to watch and that at the best subliminal propaganda (like global warming/climate change on “The Weather Channel” just to mention one so you can understand how socialist subliminal propaganda messaging works, all the way across our media networks starting from program writers and how they manipulate dialogue in script to set management to advertising, the media networks are the controlling source for our information, with the exception of our public school system. And that is for the next blog, as President Trump put out his EO for Freedom of Speech on campuses of our great colleges and institutions of higher propaganda. Now infested with liberal-socialist professors and administrators.
Back to the question at hand, “How do we wake people up?” and as I said, it will take God. And those he called to be His children. Are you up to the challenge? It is my studied opinion, that every conservative patriot and citizen who cares about our nation, Christian or non-Christian, Atheist, Jew, brown, red, yellow, black and white including anyone legally here trying to become a citizen of the USA, you are all called to help. Help wake up those who slumber, those who are afraid and huddle in a shadowy corner in fear of liberal-socialist ridicule and the bullying press. Time to at least wake the slumbering and afraid to stand and boldly proclaim Jesus, our Christian nation and our Christian principals, and if it offends the corrupt and evil, so-be-it let them pack up and find a more suitable country.

You are also called as a citizen to stand against what the Democrats and establishment corrupt snakes in Congress keep trying to do, you are called to do your own research and determine to go to the poll and vote liberal, progressive, socialist globalist out of office! From dog catcher to Senator … they have no power over you except that which you yield up – so instead of telling the conservatives in Congress to grow a spine, you might grow one and go about waking people up and making sure they know what is going on. Most of those slumbering and cowering in the shadows know what is happening but have not had the encouragement to wake up.

Courage and commitment is what God needs of our citizens and his church to encourage and support people to expose the vile politicians and vote them out of office before they destroy the Constitution and the Christian church. Empower the people to stop and overcome the vile septic state we are finding we are slopping around in.

God bless you.

Socialism .. Our Greatest Danger

 

Get out of UN

 

Socialism, the resurgence of socialism in my studied opinion is not actually a resurgence, but inadvertently exposed during the 2016 and the 2018 political campaigns. What happened with some of the comments during the Clinton – Sanders primary DNC presidential campaign, both mentioned some of the socialist utopias. Bernie more than Hillary because he wears his socialism like a fine hat, Hillary on the other hand, was more clandestine in her socialist ambitions, playing so because of Obama’s blatant display of total disregard for the Nation, the Constitution, and the people. His total ambition to divide and conquer our nation in the name of the North American Socialist Union which he would then control and work his way to the UN Secretary General in his blind ambition to rule the world, as the Global Socialist Union.
That was not the idea of the Muslim from Kenya before he made the splashes in Chicago politics with ACORN and George Soros, Bill Ayers (the theoretician of Marxism as he led the Weather Underground). It was Bill Ayers that implemented the Saul Alinsky ideologies into the ACORN group, and socialism was well into its resurgence then.
Now we have socialists coming out of the woodwork which has been called Democratic Socialists. Several socialist groups already exist in the United States and have done so for decades. They have grown steadily developing their ideologies, and of course, the MSM have their agenda to help even when lies suit them and their purpose better than the truth. Problem with socialism and that is for conservative and Christian authors, bloggers and all conservative communications. Liberal-socialists and Republican establishment politicians will control the content … even in our books. So, if you have a book ready, you had better get your agent and get them busy with selling your book to the right publisher.
I listen to several sermons on Sunday, I have a couple of preachers that I like as their messages always apply to life, our lives as we have to live it in these turbulent times of chaos in our nation. Our nation that was founded on Christian principals as most of the founders were Christian of a few sects who settled in their own Boroughs in most part, but there were other sects and non-Christians there as well, just in a large minority, and thus the infamous Jefferson letter about a wall between government and religion, it was initiated by the Danbury Baptist Church’s concern that being a minority in his state of Connecticut that they would be run out, or politically persecuted. Jefferson’s letter simply was to state that the federal government could not step in and that they could not establish or disestablish any religion. However, since the ’60s the Atheists have created major damage to the Christian faith in the United States, using Justice Black’s opinion on Church and State, and the Socialist group the ACLU.
Fact is, the United States was founded as a Christian Nation our Constitution and its Preamble reflect it. Our laws, ethics, integrity, morals, reflected throughout the history of our nation. It is not any wonder that it is my studied opinion that this nation was given as a safe haven for Christ’s Protestant church. Not always doing the right thing, but then the church is the people and Christian or not, people don’t do the right thing most of the time. As a nation, we should have been learning by our mistakes and as the church, we should have been learning from our mistakes. But evil pride and the nature of man has only splintered the nation and broken the church.
Meanwhile, socialism has been able to move ahead through the aid of liberalism, liberal theology, social justice, and our worthless liberal congress. I know some of the representatives and Senators are fine people with some integrity and values, however, we still have a majority of the citizens and the church that still hold on to the value that makes this the greatest nation on earth.
Yes, I am a Trump supporter and glad that I am, although I have my doubts that he will be able to complete what we made him promise to middle America. Some he has kept even with all the obstruction from the Shadow Government (the Swamp and Deep State), and he wanted to get things done bi-partisan but that should have never even been considered from day one. He began by changing his demeanor to be more presidential and with class, except with his war against fake news, and that war just might cost him reelection in 2020, because, the “never Trump” socialists and RINOs have joined with the press to bring him down. But in the long run, he has just kept on keeping on, like the little pink bunny.
Unfortunately, like the little pink bunny, the socialists just keep on going, beating their drums of resistance and Argumentum Ad Infinitum cycling from one fake issue to another. Well perhaps fake is too strong of a word if we are looking at the big picture because some of what they claim is based on a half-truth, no truth, and totally manufactured lies with no link to reality at all. And that is what the mainstream media find their material to run with. It is the reason that we hear what they say and calls it and them stupid.
Stupid like a fox as long as they can get their lies passed among the conservative on social media it actually becomes a weapon against us. It becomes Ad Nauseam and if we continue to respond beyond the first comment and share on social media, we are playing their game and doing the propaganda for them. It is what Trump did during the campaign he picked a big fight with them and then would make totally out of context comments focusing perceived truth, and the outrage would spread like wildfire fueled on gasoline. The Socialists are doing the same thing with us and it keeps on going and going and going and going, … we are their best propagandists.
Since President Trump called the socialists out during the State of the Union address, because a half dozen of them have been recently elected and several socialists have elected to seek the office of the President in 2020, so now that the old DNC has been exposed as mostly socialists and some even communists who have been purposing the Obama agenda in making the US into the North American Union (North American Socialist Union). But by pointing out the Socialists that have come out of the closet, he uncovered the whole stinking mess and the rest are in denial, sort of.
May God have mercy toward our nation, may God have mercy on us, his children. I look for more socialist confrontation not only against the President and Vice President, but conservative Congressmen/women will be in the crosshairs along with the rest of us. I pray that God will intercede on the behalf of our nation and of His church. Amen, amen and the peace of God be with us all.
Socialism in our nation has been like the little choo-choo chugging along and it came to a steep mountain, and down in its little puffer-belly it didn’t think it could, but it had to try even in the face of certain failure. The little puffer-belly started to say … “I think I can – I think I can – I think I can, I believe I can – I believe I can – I believe I can, I know I can – I know I can – I know I can…” and he did, he made it over the mountain. Well socialism has made it over the mountain, slowly over decades, but it made it over, and with George HW Bush’s allegiance to the UN and aligning his agenda with their agenda, that little puffer-belly of socialism started to have a problem with the downgrade, Clinton tried to control the momentum of the downhill plunge, George W Bush lost the brakes, and Obama put more fuel to it until it went totally out of control bringing chaotic division amongst the people.
Socialism took over the Democratic Party back in the day of Franklin D. Roosevelt and his “New Deal” and the UN Charter. Now that Hillary didn’t make it to the Whitehouse to continue on where Obama left off, we have them squealing like a stuck hog, because Trump is doing what Obama did to the conservative, only with more provocation when he went on National TV and said how he was being opposed in Congress “I have a telephone and a pen” telling the nation he could do what he wanted, and that was the power of his office. That is what he did. And was unopposed by the socialist (liberals) in Washington.
He would not have even been elected the first go around if a real conservative would have run against him, but he had the good fortune to run against another socialist McCain, at the least a RINO, who was trying to make the Republican Party into a “New Republican Party” (progressive globalism) and the opposite of conservatism. Then along came Mitt, who had it won even without trying, that is until their last debate and RINO (globalist) Mitt gave Obama the win, with simple ridicule over naval ships. An unexpected ploy in a valid point that Obama switched to ridicule old Mitt, and like it was almost a preplanned game, he manufactured a feeble grin and a stammered “I am aware of that”… and went on a very defensive and elusive argument, loosing not only the debate but his whole campaign, a campaign that now seems to have been a farce and manufactured failure from the start.
It would be my studied opinion if I would give it much thought if any, it would just enhance my loathing for Romney he sold the election to the socialists, allowing the Obama to try to finish what he started in 09; “To fundamentally change our nation.” and he almost, yes, he ALMOST. Succeeded, but, as they say, “Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” Thank the ever-merciful God for not allowing Clinton or Obama, to continue during a time of chaos on every front, which was all manufactured and fast-tracked by Obama, Soros, The UN, Clinton, and the socialist in the shadow government and in Congress, including the RINOs who nearly destroyed the conservative Republican party.
Without God’s intervention … well, I will leave you to guess. I will leave you to read my book when it is published (I hope soon – just have to find an Agent) … but you can start doing your own research, starting with FDR’s New Deal, the UN Charter, and all the social programs he used the power of the “phone and pen” executive power to put into effect. Why? to nudge the people who were coming out of the great depression to rely on government, even for work and retirement With programs like the Social Security Act, (Congress) WPA, Welfare for families with children, which added more agencies, and expanded the power of the federal government over the people, FDR’s New Deal targeted the most vulnerable citizens and made them more dependent and trapped by that dependency on the federal government.
Socialism then has been a force to be reckoned with and although from time to time it has been focus of various political activist groups to expose the socialism and communism, and the left who wore the crown of liberalism as some sort of great badge for liberating the masses from capitalism and conservatism who had been morphing into socialism since the 1800s and a shift of speed with FDR. Now we have full-blown running the Shadow Government and the socialist/globalists which is the greater part of Congress. We have the Liberalist church eating away at the biggest threat to the socialist/globalist (equates into what we have been calling liberal for decades). But they are all Communist without total Marxism … yet
They all suffer from Christian phobia (We may call it Christianophobic) real Christianity brings terror to their inner soul. I read some interesting stuff in an opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen, it was a humorous piece of a real serious nature. It was about the way the Democratic Party “Name-Calling” or the way to use “ridicule” according to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals handbook. Thus, they ridicule by phobias the first to use phobias in “name calling” and using big words in arguments some of which they don’t even know the meaning, some have no meaning but have been manufactured by the MSM and the activist pick it up on the morning broadcast and use it in their confrontations with Conservatives and Christians.
In his article, he recommended the same by hitting them with words like sesquipedalian (google it) but when they start with their big words just say that word, roll your eyes, and walk away. Let them suffer from patriot-phobia.

But do me a favor and research socialism in the United States.

Well, this has been a long article and I will let you get on with your research.

My Opinion’s Foundation

My Opinion 00

I seldom use a blog post to clarify or justify my theological standing which guides my research and studies. So, we will cut the chase and simply say this my stand is on Systematic Theology, and the inspiration, inerrancy, infallibility and authority of Scripture, (The Word of God – The Bible). The corner stone of Systematic Theology is the Word of God the building stones are writings, sermons, and other sources of credited information concerning the systematic doctrines of the Bible. I am also a pretribulation and believe that the Rapture will take place at the end of the church age and prior to the Tribulation – a point of disagreement between various individual theologies.

I have no problem with people disagreeing with my theology and simply agree to disagree with their views or their theologies as long as their theologies include the biblical means of Salvation by Grace through faith in Jesus. Grace alone not of works lest any should boast. The Bible being the Word of God, without error or fallibility. In other words, free grace in the redemption of mankind through that small measure of faith that all mankind has to first believe in our Lord and Savior, His teachings, commands, and sayings.

Then I believe they are born again believers or rather Christian and part of the body of Christ or the church universal. We are truly redeemed, justified by the blood of the lamb.
Our differences in theology and personal theologies that are not critical to our salvation and true Christianity.

Our differences have led to deeper studies and understanding of the end product of our so great a faith. I am, what has been the focus of political and liberal church persecution and separation, Evangelical, conservative Southern Baptist Convention and the latter because of their mission statement (Baptist Faith and Message), their stand on the Bible, and autonomy of the local church and their mission’s involvement worldwide and nationally, (commitment to the Great Commission).

Granted, there is concerns which I have over some of the ideologies and politics of some of the Convention Leadership. But as Southern Baptist we enjoy a disagreement or, so it may seem. Maybe that is where I learned to agree to disagree, while disagreeing vehemently about the things that matter to the reconciliation souls to God through Jesus.

Liberalism in Christianity and our politics is, in my studied opinion, evil and is the primary tool which is used by Satan against the true Christian Church, it replaced Atheism, and progressivism, (modernity), I cannot agree what so ever with their politics or theologies. It takes a marriage of Christianity and politics to renew our values and the integrity of our nation which have been given to the global socialist ideologies of the United Nations, global aspirations that cannot come about as long as there is free independent, sovereign nations and NT Christianity.

At this point in time only God can do anything about what unity of the Christian church can be brought on by believers, however I do believe it is the responsibility of ever minister who has been called to the ministry to do what they promised God when they accepted their call. In part, to be a faithful steward of His word, and to fight evil in all of its forms.

It is not by accident that I write about the Seven Churches of Asia Minor, as I have in the past. With each series I pray that the series will become more refined and more understood by the Christian reader. I do realize that those whose ideologies have mingled with their theology and will offer their rejections mostly the Futurist have their view of the Book of Revelation not mentioning the Christian church being in the entire message. They vew the Seven Churches of Revelation are Jewish communities, which is not supported in scripture.

What can be supported is that there are three divisions and several subdivisions in the Book of Revelation. The Church is Christian and represents the church universal and its condition at any given time during the church age.

Where most pretribulation theologians agree that the Rapture will take place between the last verse of chapters one, and chapter four thereby creating the first division and the seven years of tribulation. John was not the one giving the Revelation, it was Jesus and Jesus chose John to be the scribe to rite it down what was, is and is going to be.

Revelation is to reveal or to unveil what was – things that are – and what things are to come unveiling Jesus’ second coming and the establishment of His government for a thousand years. From verse four, through 22:7 is the revelation proper. Seven years of God’s final dealing with Israel.

Nonetheless, it is as I always say – “Do your own research”. The thing that people don’t understand is that the Christian must “Study to show thyself approved” … Not everyone will believe exactly like I believe, and it is not my calling to make everyone accept everything I believe. I used to tell my congregation “just don’t accept everything I say simply because I said it, but test what I say by scripture.
If your preacher is not preaching Scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, then he/she is preaching self and self alone without the leadership of the Holy Spirit. and during sermons I would find myself “chasing rabbits.” Chasing rabbits generally are attempts to better apply the message when little funny illustrations fail to work. When the truth presented seriously needs to be applied to the hearts of those who hear, it is the Holy Spirit who will give them an understanding not the preacher. The Holy Spirit will apply the Word to your heart, but the word preached must be the truth of Scripture.
That is why, I can tolerate the various theologies that lead to Biblical salvation for those who sincerely seek the salvation wrought by Jesus. Jesus who unveiled the end and start. Of course, only God is privy to the time, but we will know when it happens. But, believe me, it will happen. Meanwhile, this old preacher will continue to do what God wants me to do, continue to preach, (mostly writing now).
Now that is said and done, and I will now proceed with this series of the seven churches and my fight against liberalism/Socialism in the church and in politics.
Thanks for reading … and celebrate Christmas, first by not getting too involved with the petty bickering and political correctness that generally takes the joy off the celebration, It really don’t make a difference that Jesus was not born on December 25th, and why the early church at Rome chose to celebrate

Merry Christmas …

The Message of 7 Churches

 

Ephesus AA

 

The Loveless Church

We come to the First Church in the list of Seven, (Rev. 2:1 – 7), However, if you recall some of the introduction in chapter one, it is the Lord Jesus’ revelation to His servant John and in verse three, “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.”
So, what does “is near” mean? Well God knew just how long it would take Christianity to run its faithful and committed course and He didn’t make me or anyone privy to how long it would actually be until the end of its age and sufferings, of its persecution. We do know that Jesus will come in the clouds and those who sleep in the Lord will rise first, then those of us who are still struggling along, will meet them in the air, in a twinkling of an eye. That will be the close of the church age, when Christ collects His church.
Chapter two verse l: — 7: “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, these things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven lampstands: — 2) ‘I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;’ – 3)’and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.’ – 4) ‘Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.’ – 5) ‘Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – un-less you repent.’ 6) ‘But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.’ 7) ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.’”
First, we are to understand that Jesus commends the church on the good that they have done and are currently doing. yet, with verse four God has a ‘Nevertheless’ as He strikes with the sword against their condition, they have left their first love. And the sword condemns this condition of falling from their first love, that love we have when we first surrender to Jesus as Lord of our lives, and the commitment we surrendered our soul to the kingship of our Lord Jesus.
We love Jesus because He loved us first, and for the born-again Christian, at the very moment of our rebirth, at the time of adoption and the death of the old nature, being justified in our new life, inside we fall in love with our Savior. Now, although that is correct and sounds wonderful, I do believe Jesus was referring to the First Commandment as Christians see it. “I am the Lord thy God – Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” One of the costs of the free gift of our salvation.
Jesus is God the Son – the incarnate God, Jesus who walked among His people, His creation. By grace through faith in Jesus we are redeemed to God and justified. God simply wants to be first in our lives and we are beside ourselves that God would want to be first in my life, He wants us, His church, to love him because He loves us, loves us enough to die for us of course, we love Him more than life; it is understandable that the church has become almost deniably obsessed in protecting our salvation as solely a free gift of God’s grace. Of which it is but it does cost us our lives as we knew them. I am proud that I chose the offer of grace and in return my surrender, my total surrender to His finite love.
Nonetheless, we all get caught up in the world in work, sleep time, church and that is where most of the problems lay, we spend – say, 40 hours a week working (providing we can get by on a 40-hour week. Then we spend around 56 hours sleeping, and we give God around 5 hours a week if we are not on staff, or say a Sunday school teacher, choir member, maybe a Deacon as well.
That should put a top member of the congregation with 10 – 14 hours for God plus prayer time, and the rest of 168-hour week for or in the world the world, and it begins to reflect in our lives and the rightful position of God in our lives, our minds have a lot more input of the world than of God. When we consider our condition or the condition of our church, we may want to get brutally honest with our self, because only you and God know the truth.
Before we first loved God, we are the center of our lives, after we are born again, we start our journey and work hard at putting the old man away, and we work even harder of putting God in the center of our lives, putting Jesus center and on his throne of our lives, our existence. We work hard, very hard as we start our Christian walk, our love for the Savior soars like the eagle then levels off somewhat as we float on the winds of God’s grace.
Then one day we look around and find we have been losing altitude unaware, we find our peace not so peaceful, we find that there have been unnoticed changes, Jesus is not found on the throne in life’s center and we are not on the submissive side as we were, but closer to the throne, now occupied by other worldly things like money, work, leisure enticements. We find anxiety and guilt for not paying attention to the things of God, and trouble in our lives is becoming serious.
We have not crashed our spiritual love in Jesus, and it is here that we can avert the nose dive of recession through cultural allurements and the wisdom of the world. Not keeping a real handle on the old nature, which although is claimed dead, when we are born again, all things made new, and for a while they are, they are until the demonic strength of the human nature’s appetites slowly erode our passion for the Lord, and unless we catch the slipping away, we will be overcome by the things of the world.
When we confess and repent and really experience the work of Christ, the work of Christ on the cross, the Death, Burial and resurrection, the motive for His horrific sacrifice, we find our rescue there at the cross. One Christian Counseling course explains this as identifying with the cross. I call it more of having God opening our eyes and ears, which He can do rather boldly, and the longer we ignore God’s little prodding’s the more intrusive and fouler they may become.
First, let me affirm my belief on something that has been denied and fervently rebuked by liberal political activists who along with other liberal organizations have come against fundamental Christianity, overtly since the 60s, but for some time in order to justify lifestyles that are less than simply sinful but vile evil sins, the whole thing of abortion dividing women, Christian women, Homosexuality dividing Christian churches and denominations. These divisions come with the bullying and intimidation of the media, the Hollywood elites, the UN and even the from President Obama. This in turn caused many Christians to seek a comfortable church, where they would not be under fire and persecution from the liberals. They found it in liberal theology.
We see a liberal church filled with people in a comfort zone, a comfortable church which had once done a lot of good works for Jesus, it involved most of them, but today, we have the comfortable. With 20 percent of the body doing 80 percent of the Lord’s work. At first, we probably had most of the people doing great work for Jesus’s name sake. While Pastoring, I become acquainted with a problem for Pastors as they were trying to figure out how to enlist volunteers for the various committees and duties of the church. That “rule of thumb” problem is simple and works its problematic nightmare nearly everywhere (except in liberalism), and that is 20% of the members do 80% of the work, and giving as well, it may not be the same ones … giving and working, because it seems we have the workers and the givers, most of the 20% are both, the smaller the church the greater the number of those who are committed.
Those who are genuinely committed to our Lord, don’t seek a comfortable church where they can be ministered to feel good in the community, and not be under the liberal attack and persecution. I use the present tense, because it is continuing on and probably will go on for years. One of the problems of the church falling from where it once was, is that the normal battle between Bible-believing Protestant churches and denominations, which in most part was the application of the various doctrinal and theological positions, most of which Bible believing Christians could agree to disagree on. Point is that most in-fighting was inconsequential to salvation.
Somewhere in or around the turn of the nineteenth century liberal theology was born in order to protect Christianity from the philosophers. But, he erroneously lumped Bible authority into his thought of the church learning to experience the total dependency on God and have nothing to do with any outside authority including the authority or the inerrancy and infallibility of the Word of God. Over the next dozen or so liberal theologians it simply went from bad to worse.
Original sin, then sin, the Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, Salvation by Grace through Faith alone, it is now God Consciousness and works or everyone will eventually all will be saved. Sorry folks but that is where liberal theology has taken the church. A brief study of liberal theology can show how it evolved over the years to now it is morphing into socialist theology along the lines of Karl Marx … perhaps, they may think that it will help later when most of the world will be ruled by a global socialist union.
Not the one-world government with the Anti-Christ, but the UN’s Global Socialist Union. The way things are going socially and with the American culture, now so lawless, no moral values, integrity gone, and a war against the church from outside and from inside. The lure of the world and its evil lawlessness has truly taken a hard-deep bite from the church and there is truly those who are born again believers who have left the biblical theology as they slipped from their intimate love relationship with Jesus and have sought the tolerance of liberal theology churches. knowing that liberal’s subculture will leave them alone and not mock their belief. They join the ranks that the liberals call tolerant. Tolerant of most things evil, as long as the elites call them okay. They have joined the ranks of those that have changed their view of the Bible being the inspired word of God, inerrant and infallible. Those who deny the virgin birth, the resurrection and being born anew by grace through the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross. These are the ones slipping away from their first love in Christ Jesus.
There was once a great Evangelist Dr. A.T. Pierson, and when he was asked: “Don’t you think the world is getting converted already?” his reply, “Well, I admit that the world has become a little churchy, but the church has become immensely worldly.”
The church at Ephesus was slipping away from Jesus, our first love, and the church has continued to slip, under the rise of and re-establishment of liberal theology, liberation theology. It has been allowed by God, I guess to keep us on our toes; only one problem of keeping us on our toes is that we have to have the ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. We are being destroyed from within and it seems like no one really cares. In general, there are only few preachers who preach the Bible against the wiles of liberalism in its various forms.
Conservative biblical churches are being torn apart by liberalism, post modernism … and the liberal global or one world government’s push through liberalism/socialism. Liberal theology and political liberalism mold well into socialism, and when the church begins to fall away from Jesus and the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God, they believe the lies of the false prophets, teachers and politicians of the world.
He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Christian church. He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Christian.
