GIVING GIFTS

God has given us redemption as a free gift…… it cost a lot, the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.

Three responses are:

1. Ignore it altogether …. with optional behavior, possibly involving mockery or blasphemy.

2. Accept it and continue merrily along doing your own thing.

3. Accept it and reciprocate, by giving of ourselves back to God.

Only the last option produces change in people’s lives and prepares them to meet God.

People fail to understand that the rule of God is theocratic and not democratic, and even though they have free will, they will be judged for how they use it.

The world simply cannot understand that God’s love demands a response….. and continual rebellion must eventually be dealt with.

In order for the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ on earth to take place ….. rebellion must be put down…. those who refuse the Lordship of Christ (and that constitutes the bulk of humanity) are going to be JUDGED.

Whether the “love” gospel brings you to true humility and devotion to Christ ….. or whether it’s the “fear” of God that accomplishes the same end.

The TRUTH is God is very displeased with the current state of the world and human affairs…. but He is allowing the evil to get worse and worse.

When he finally puts a dramatic stop to it all…… millions are going to suffer and die and their spirits put in torment.

It’s better that you take heed to the Word while there is still time.

What’s the point of persisting in your outright rebellion against God ? You are only bringing misery on yourself…. and it makes no sense…… REPENT today…. while there is still time.

You will find that God is faithful and true and you will be blessed and not cursed of Him.

It boggles the mind how “gay couples” can possibly think that God approves of such behavior.

The only logical explanation is that their minds have been deceived by powerful evil spirits because they know not the true God at all.

Really only three types…… deceived people worshiping a “false” image of the true God …….. openly rebellious people following their own will and acknowledging no god whatsoever….. and some people openly worshiping the Devil and following evil intentionally.

I can testify that God has blessed me for following His way even when I did not want to….. I did it out of RESPECT for God …. who He IS.

Th Bible says that the FEAR of God is the beginning of wisdom…. we may not always “feel like” we wish to follow the commandments of God…. but we must do so anyway, because is in OUR ultimate best interest to do so.

We are not robots….. we must use that same “free will” that causes people to sin ….. to force ourselves to do righteousness on occasion.

There are only TWO possible paths….. God’s way …. and the way of evil….
you cannot invent a third, “my way” because “your way” will ultimately prove to be evil also.

Frank Sinatra’s song “I did it my way”….. is actually promoting SELFISHNESS, PRIDE and REBELLION….. and that’s exactly what Satan did….. He proclaimed he would do things “his way” in direct opposition to what God had decreed…. that is the very essence of sin itself….. that’s where it all starts.

You have a choice to make….. either continue in your rebellion against the True and Holy and Righteous God……

or HUMBLY beg His forgiveness and TRUST Christ to enable you to change and then get up and OBEY God.

Trust and Obey…. for there is no other way…. to escape the judgement and have the favor and blessings of the Almighty.

Messiah Manifest

“The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. he shall judge among the nations: he shall fill the places with the dead bodies…” Psalm 110:5-6

The fulfillment of this prophecy may not be for some time yet…. however consider this….. suppose Jesus Christ was to put in his appearance at this current time….. how would He be received ?

Do you think the American government would willingly abdicate their authority to His rulership ? what about China, Russia or the EU ?

I have been castigated before for writing about global mayhem and mass murder in the name of God ….. and I have been told to write about peace and love and human unity and roundly rebuked that God is “not like that”…. HE wouldn’t hurt a fly !

But I fail to see how anyone could be so naive !

Isaiah 45:22-23 tells us “Look unto me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am GOD and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, THAT UNTO ME EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW….”

Where does this leave the majority of REBELLIOUS, OWN-WAYED and STIFF-NECKED humans ?

I tell you the TRUTH when I say that they will “attack” God (when HE appears) and suffer the consequences which will be death and destruction.

Face it…. the majority worship MAN and not GOD…. MAN reigns supreme from their point of view…. watch Star Trek, Stargate or ANY OTHER MOVIE…. MAN is always the smartest and the top dog…. it is a MAN centered “point of view” !

The “god” that most people worship is an “imaginary being” who gives them whatever they want… whatever they pray for…. a BIG-ABLE COSMIC SANTA CLAUS !!!!!

Even many “religious people” are going to be SHOCKED out of their wits when the REAL GOD (as revealed in the BIBLE) puts in an appearance.

The humans will regard the appearance of “Jesus Christ and all the holy angels” as an ALIEN INTERVENTION and a THREAT to our planet and “our way of life”

“GOD is LOVE”…. is a favorite phrase that everybody likes to use…. and it’s in the Bible…. and it’s TRUE….. but the very same Bible also tells us that God allowed Jesus Christ, His own Son, to suffer a horrible death on the Cross of Calvary.

Destroying millions of humans may not be “easy” for Him but it will be necessary BECAUSE of LOVE….. and HE HAS SWORN THAT HE WILL DO IT…..

TODAY HE says to every one of you….. HE CALLS TO YOU from Ezekiel 33:11….

“”As I live, says the LORD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; TURN YOU, turn you from your evil ways; for why will you die….”

REPENT and seek the LORD… while He is still calling for you…. and be you thankful that JUDGEMENT has not fallen yet !

Special note before you read today’s post: I always stress BALANCE… today’s post may seem harsh… and please don’t misunderstand it…. true concern for the sufferings of others is a good thing… and we are expected to care for the poor, the fatherless and the widows… but it should be done under the direction of the Holy Spirit and with their ultimate Spiritual upliftment in mind… purely humanitarian efforts by unsaved people, however well intentioned, are usually doomed to failure… as Jesus said, “….and if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14)

—————

There is a popular lie spreading all over the world  today… and it is, that “progress” is being made in “reforming” the world…. “people” are becoming “better”…more “tolerant” and “loving”… the churches are raking in followers by the thousands with “the King’s kids prosperity theology”…. and we can just picture that day (just around the corner, perhaps ?) when the song, “We are the world, we are the children….” becomes a reality… but let’s analyze this idea…. here are the words:

“There comes a time when we heed a certain call, When the world must come together as one… We are a part of God’s great big family.. And the truth, you know, Love is all we need… As God has shown us, By turning stone to bread… So we all must lend a helping hand…. We are the world, We  are the children We are the ones to make a brighter day So let’s start giving There’s a choice we’re making We’re saving our own lives…”

This song is composed by the devil… and here is a little proof, nowhere in the Bible does God turn stone into bread….. but that is what Satan suggested that  Jesus should do when he was tempting Him (Matthew 4:3)…. Satan’s handiwork is all over this song, but further analysis will have to wait till another day.

But that’s not all… what happened to all the money raised by “Band Aid” and “Live Aid” ???… it went to strengthen the army and buy weapons…. there is no doubt that the proceeds of the “Live Aid” and other relief organisations  INCREASED the torture and hardship of the starving people of Ethiopia…. Read the article here:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/africa/article7048218.ece

Satan’s “charity” therefore served a double purpose for him, fleece the affluent Western middle-class do-gooders and use their money to promote further killing, genocide and torture.

What does God say about this world ? …. the Lord Jesus Christ announced that all it’s works were evil and He refused to pray for it (John 17:9)

GOSH ! ….  you say… but how could a LOVING GOD…. just  IGNORE the great “humanitarian crisis”… the millions of SUFFERING people…. that’s not the God I know and THAT’s not the God I worship…. my friend, if you are not worshipping the GOD OF THE BIBLE (who is the SAME yesterday, today and forever) then you are worshipping a false god, namely, the devil.

The GREAT GOD… LORD of LORDS and KING of KINGS…. NEVER talked about “saving” the whole world… He talked about saving people “out of” the world….in fact, the world has been CONDEMNED to DESTRUCTION (along with the millions of people in it… and they are going to die… one way or the other).

What GOD has been doing for the last 2000 years  is plucking INDIVIDUALS out of the “CONDEMNED WRECK”….. please understand, all the promises, all the hope lies with “those who were given to Him by the Father” (John 17:6)….. JUST as NOAH was selected and the rest of humanity ANNIHILATED in the flood….. so it will be at the end of the age.

My friend, God is not saving the world, and at no time, since the creation or before, did He ever have the idea of saving the whole world. God is not saving all church members either. What God is doing is to take out a people for His name… they are known as the Elect, the Saints, the Chosen Ones and the Bride of Christ….. these are they, who heed the Call…. who have washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb

“For many are called but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14)

and the words of Revelation 3:20 still apply, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and OPEN THE DOOR, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, as your little children, it is a WONDER to us… WHY you have chosen us (instead of somebody else)…. how come we heeded your Call when others will not ?…. we know not the answer to this mystery, but like Jesus, we pray for all those that will heed your Call in the future…. use us Lord in your service and grant that we may bear fruit for Jesus… and in His name we now pray and ask these things. Amen
