I wanted to post an updated version about the “Kings of Persia” as prophesied in Daniel Chapter 10, mainly because of the pathetically weak Biblical writings which I have read on this subject since I posted it years ago. Perhaps this is because most churches wish to remain comfortable within the world and not offend anyone? Or perhaps they are actually spiritually blind, and can’t see past their academia? I’m not sure, but what I do know is what I can plainly see, combined with having 30 years of Bible instruction, and all types of eschatology: but then there is the Truth which is only understood by the Spirit of truth, who is Christ himself!
The overthrow of the west, is an attempted overthrow of anything Christian within its traditional framework. It really starts to snowball after the events in – 2 Thessalonians 2, as “he that restraineth” (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way. This does not include the Lord’s people, yet it does include the general grace to the world, which helped to keep sin down (restrained it) to a certain degree.
After the restraints come off, sin will run rampant upon the earth, worse than in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. What do we have today, unbridled sin which looks to overturn all of the past restraints predominantly instated by western cultures, and people.
To make matters worse, sin insists on being non-restrained and will war against anyone or any culture which attempts to stand in its way. So then, “Multiculturalism” symbolized as the feet of iron and clay (Adam meaning red, clay) . In Daniel, shows a cobbled together world unified of different people, cultures and religions ruling the world, this is also known as Babylon, which represents a culture of sin and corruption apart from the Lord God’s order.
The most interesting phenomenon to me occurred after the 9-11 attacks on New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon. Islamic Terrorism thrusts the United Sates and all western powers into global conflict, (the Global War on Terror, which I played a small part in) and it has not slowed or stopped since, despite thousands of live lost, wars and rumors of wars, despite many attempts by the powers that be wishing to accommodate such fanatical people’s.
These Muslim (Persian) people have been allowed to migrate (for a large part) unchecked by western authorities, who were once charged with protecting their populations. As a result a slaughter is occurring to any “old school” western ideals and cultures (Christian informed values) , for a perverse progressive objective in the blending of the world together as one. This blending together, is the feet of Iron and Clay prophesied in the book of Daniel. In Daniel chapter 10 – verse 13-14 it is explained to Daniel in significant spiritual detail, what shall befall thy people in the latter days! I must interject at this point that this is not just physical Israel, but indeed is spiritual Israel, the ones grafted into the vine because of Christ.
The spiritual significance is that the Kings of Persia, are demonically driven forces who are allowed to battle the Lord God, and his Angels; most notably the Chief Angle Michael, who has been given authority next to the Lord God. These Demonic beings (the kings of Persia) – the Muslim world, are allowed to dominate, desolate and destroy all traces of the Christian informed culture, and their people.
This is blatantly obvious to anyone who has eyes to see, it is much more pressing than just a theological study of eschatology and the apocalyptic passages! It really amazes me just how passive and weak many of these scriptures are presented by Bible academics, who have no power nor light to see or digest an all-encompassing and consuming problem of this present age. No rather it is presented in the “safe space” of being merely academic, and therefore open to conjecture and interpretation by those who are puffed up within their own understanding of the scriptures!
I believe these Persians are exactly what they are described as being in the latter days, and will nearly destroy white western cultures, except for the fact that the man of sin (the Devil) will come first in playing God, who will be worshipped by the world as such. 1 Thessalonians 5-3 “and the world will cry peace and safety”. The wicked man of sin will perform many signs and wonders, and basically demand to be worshipped as God.
Then, Christ will return in the clouds and destroy him with the breath of his mouth and the brightness of His coming. Hence Babylon, with all its outwardly expressed sin in the world will be destroyed, and the thousand year reign of Christ and his Bride will begin. At this point, the judgment day will hold off till after the thousand year reign of Christ, after the very last rebellion of Satan and his people, who are judged not to be in the book of life, and cast into the lake of fire for eternity.
This is an opinion piece on the struggles I have experienced concerning others with my walk in the Lord.
I was accredited as a minister in “Christian Counseling” by the grace of God due to the study I performed in six years of “street ministry”. I am certainly not the most qualified person who ever endeavored an academic position in the world, but my experience like many others who are seniors now, most certainly has a certain degree of credibility.
About 25% of the population are sociopaths, and within that percentage fewer are full blown psychopaths statically speaking. Still others exhibit some form of a Narcissistic personality disorder, or (NPD).
What I have discovered throughout my life, is that being empathetic towards others can often result in being targeted to sociopaths, as they are an easy mark for the sociopath to bolster themselves up on the back of the unsuspecting “nice guy”. As an actual believer in Christ – in action and in deed, one may become crushed and devoured by these wolves, especially the ones who claim Christ’s name as their own! These false brethren as described in 1 John 2: 18-19 as ANTICHRISTS are actually ones who started with the Lord (like us) but did not finish!
In other words, they went back to the ways of the world and became twice the sons of hell than before they started with Christ (Matthew 23:15). The religious leaders of today are the same animal, albeit we are functioning under a new covenant.
This “Spirit” of antichrist manifests itself within the Church, a type of surrogate to actually moving and abiding in Jesus Christ oneself! This is what a sneaky bastardy enemy the actual disciple is up against, but we must learn how to stand in truth! This antichrist spirit will try to crush and destroy the actual disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ within them. And that is why the scripture speaks about principalities and powers, not in a vague sense like most think, but actually within the unregenerate or natural man.
If “Satan’s” people manage to crush the faith (Christ in us) then Satan has succeeded once again in destroying a child of God, and now days these antichrists take great joy in using the scriptures to do so – a type of witchcraft, as they are not used in the spirit of truth!
Beware, lest you share the things of God with these pigs and get devoured and trampled underfoot!
For the Brethren
Matthew 7: 1- 20 is about discernment, and notice its starts with dealing with a brother first, and then moves on to walking on the narrow way with Christ yourself.
Even more hurtful than the sociopath (to me) is an actual brother in the Lord who uses being on the “narrow way” with Christ, to tear down or minimize other brethren while justifying themselves in doing so. I believe many “born again believers” seeking to be seen as leaders or devout men of God, many times may ostracize those they see as opposition.
This could also be an indicator of having a Narcissistic personality disorder: (NPD) is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated
feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings.
The victim of a Narcissistic personality is often troubled by just what offence they committed to deserve such treatment. No known therapy exists in treating a Narcissistic personality, as the Narcissist thinks there is nothing wrong with them and will not seek help.
So, being on the “Narrow Way” with Christ, allows the Narcissistic personality to justifiably create a wall between people or viewpoints, or people they deem as inconsistent with their personality, or simply people they do not like.
This is very sad when concerning the brethren, (who are to be part of the same body). Yet ego’s aside this has always reared its ugly head since Peter and Paul had a go at each other. It is a good thing that the Holy Spirit of God does a work within His own, otherwise there could be no resolutions within the body of Christ.

Such doctrines can only exist where those who expound them will not take Scripture in the round. There is a very simple rule; all Scripture agrees within the Covenant. Sadly, to hold irresistible grace is to deny a lot of Scripture and make whole doctrines out of just one text.
What kind of people would we be if we had been arrested, by the Lord God forcing himself on us? This is about the salvation from sin unto God before we die, and the proving, trying and testing of His people. We are not slaves of God but children in the New Testament.
Just who crowns the British monarch? Satan is in everything and everywhere in all societies, and if you think about it, it is plain what is going on here.
Anyone feel this? That a new sort of void now exists where there was opposition?
With all the recent uprising concerning Confederate monuments, it reminded me of the time I asked an old southern woman just why the south saw fit to rise up against the north. This is what she exhibited as to just why most southerner’s went to war as “Rebels” against the U.S. Government.
I would estimate roughly most people probably touch the lives of perhaps four generations. When I was still in my youth I sat with curiosity and amazement with a woman who had witnessed the Southern Troops camping on her father’s farm in Virginia.
She grew up to be a nurse at the turn of the century, but as she grew older her recollections became sharper on what she experienced as a child.
She was past 100 years old when I spoke with her, the oldest member of the Hampden Community in (Baltimore City, which is still portrayed as a southern town in the 1940’s encyclopedias) so I just couldn’t resist the chance to voice to her the question of “just why the south went to war with the North”.
To my shock, the old women drew up her fist and pounded on the table shouting “because the Federalists invaded Virginia, that’s why”!!!
If you think past all the emotional driven reactions to slavery, even now in the 21st century, you would realize that most of the south was poor, and predominately agricultural with allot being illiterate, and not even knowing any history as we are taught today. The point being that survival, and their families, were allot more important to most of them personally, than was the moral question concerning slavery by abolitionists.
Emphasising that only the rich plantation owner, and politicians, would have been invested in slavery in the southern states, and was seen as just another commodity of properties that they would suffer the loss of in loosing this war. Also remember, that the abolition of slavery was only applied to the Southern States to bolster the economic, military, and moral positions of the “Union” as it was politically and militarily expedient to introduce such legislation for the overall advancement of the north, while helping to ensure the destruction of the south.
While the majority of Southerners were driven by the idea of a “heavy handed federal government” who had crossed the line in undermining “states’ rights” (Confederacy) which the people felt threatened by.
Often historians seem to “overthink history” forgetting that the average person is but concerned about their personal situations, not unlike the politics of the day.
This is why a hundred year old women would still be infuriated to the point of pounding on a table and screaming at me: “because the Federalists invaded Virginia – that’s why”!
Let’s not overthink the past, why attempting to justify ones position in the current age, seems only rational to me.
This post is for actual brethren who know and follow Christ in spirit, in having a love for the truth that they might be saved. I have discovered that actual brethren are most rare today unlike the centuries past.
The reason is because the man orchestrated church systems (having a form of Godliness, but not the power thereof) have decided to teach Bible to none believers in “Christianizing families” who were never elect, or worse, elect that have been destroyed in their faith by following Church, or a “Pastor” who either knows not, or decided to take the broad road in loving the world, status, position or even salary more than perusing the Lord’s will in his life as a simple follower. In short has a desire to be seen as a leader.
Evangelism of the Gospel is to the lost sheep, and it is not for those who the Bible calls the wicked. What is missing in Evangelism today; that’s simple, discernment of the Holy Spirit of God! Churches use the Bible to teach what they consider to be the “Judging” of others, or condemnation as they have not spiritual Elders who by grace have learned who is who at the zoo!
Consequentially over the millenniums the Spirit of Antichrist has overtaken and surpassed actual followers of Christ, and actually has become a breeding ground for Satan to confuse and deceive actual brethren in using counterfeits to the truth – who is Jesus Christ himself! Then what normally occurs, is that young believers looking for actual fellowship and acceptance enter into this den of vipers, who are much more dangerous towards spiritual development (known as sanctification) in Christ. The western world, in confusing spiritual enlightenment with reason, consistently cranks out systematic theologies with different degrees of teachers (who often are naturally gifted) and destroy the “organic work of God” with the “Orchestrated, fore brained, works of men”!
All because spiritual discernment has been replaced with scholars using temple worship, which should have been replaced millenniums ago with knowing and walking with Christ ourselves! Of course the Spirit of Antichrist, (a different Gospel) really took hold with the building of the Roman Catholic Church by natural means, then often persecuting or even martyring the actual Ecclesia or Saints as heretics’.
Then of course the Lord God allowed the Reformation to take hold in using Martin Luther, who registered the gross corruption of the Biblical texts with what was occurring globally at that time. The Reformation provided much relief to a struggling people who wanted freedom from the oppression of Rome. Protestantism was born “in protest” to a systematic theology which enslaved men’s minds. Yet this was only really a half measure used to protect those being fulfilled in Christ. The Bible teaches to “mark them and avoid them” when refereeing to false brethren, it does not teach to protest their actions, nor to reform those who are not the Lords’ – but again this is wear actual discernment by the spirit of God comes into play; and not just doctrinal differences which can be discerned by the natural mind. Yet providentially, this is where we have come to in the course of human events, with few barley able to discern the spirits (1 John 4) without being butchered by intellectuals, who can only understand limited concepts of doctrines, as they are not with Him (Jesus Christ)!
My great blunder has been in freely sharing the things of God with “nominal Christians” (in name only) or with the “broad roader” who have forsaken their spiritual walk to be comfortable within the world, within systematic theologies. These are those which are known as “Antichrists” having started with us, yet became diverted to a different Gospel (Religion) independent of the Lord’s leading.
As an example, I would often naturally share the workings of demons, which I had experience with. Or express miraculous healings which I had witnessed within my time in street ministry. Yet such false brethren, (whom the church called Elders) had no concept, or even remotely understood what should have been an entry level understanding of the Spiritual world in walking with Christ! I was often shocked these men could not understand what I had just explained to them. Then wondered just why it was they seemed to have no clue as to the workings of such forces, which should have been elementary to even a young brother who walked in Christ!
The reason of course is that you cannot teach functioning in the Holy Spirit, or the workings of the spirit world to a blind man – no matter how much scripture which can be crammed into their natural understanding! Others would be much more insulent in taking me to task in using the Bible, yet no matter how well I was able to cross reference their challenge in using scripture, it was to no avail in delivering my point with clarity. The academically more proficient than myself, would always appear superior to me in Bible knowledge (and they may have been) yet when the Holy Spirit of God moved upon me, it was as child’s play “in battering them into at least a position of neutrality” although the lasting effect of such “pork wrestling” only produced “angry bacon” which reluctantly had learned not to challenge me for fear of being shown to be wrong, especially in public.
Yet more often than not, I could not speak, and was unable to function cognitively in such debates! This frustrated me to no end, as I knew the answers, but was unable to engage at such a level. The reason for this is that I operate by intuition and the inspiration of the Lord, whereas most men operate upon intellect and reason, and there can be no mutually beneficial outcome simply because the natural mind receives not the things of God, albeit they are biblically based.
This is why the scripture teaches (us) to not cast your (spiritual pearls) before swine: Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
I had never imagined this verse was speaking about those who claim Christ’s name – I had thought it was only speaking about the ungodly peoples (wicked) who had no love for the truth. Yet the deeper truth in this passage is actually referring to those who will not, or cannot, submit themselves to Christ, as they have not been born again of Spirit!
The church system teaches to confess the sinners prayer with your mouth, and bingo you are born anew of spirit. This is only true for the one who the Lord has decided to do a work in, *and the most forgotten part is to follow Christ above all else, as to be transformed from a sinner to a man or women of God.
Rev 17-18 : Drunk on the blood of the Saints and the Martyrs of Jesus, is the consequence of the “Spirit of Antichrist” many of which started with Christ, but became diverted to the world, or more specifically the world’s church systems. Which were devised by Satan, to rip and devour the actual sheep desperately in need of rescue by a (the) good shepherd.
I realize this is a most sobering post, and how I wish there were actual Elders (men of God) who would help stem the tide of such destruction! As for me and my household we will “follow” the Lord, as we are now much more than servants (because of Christ) but actual Sons and Daughters of God!
The so called, “servants” can stick to their temple worship which will be ultimately destroyed once again by Christ’s second coming!
I was in a slightly heated debate yesterday concerning the Bible passage about the meaning of the ten virgins found in Matthew 25: 1-13. The reason for this is NOT an academic reason concerning doctrinal understanding, rather it goes much deeper than that to the heart of people’s “eternal security “ as it brings into question at a personal level the question whether or not they actually have, or are following Christ!
The Lord showed me this, this morning as I awoke. Now then, in making such a statement “most” will immediately be offended, as this revelation was received by me, by way of the cross, which is always offensive to “enemies of the cross” and is indeed coined in Scripture as the “offence of the cross”. This is why Jesus said that you will be hated of all men for my namesake. Even those who claim to be followers of him, but have never seen him or known him spiritually, and is what the Bible is all about, in being written to actual disciples, who actually have a living relationship with the Lord God of Israel!
I have noticed that one of Satan’s counterfeit to this, always conceived and promoted in the mind and always operating in the natural, independent of the Lord, is Bible based beliefs’ about “physical Israel” as opposed to “spiritual Israel” – (the elect) whom the Bible is actually addressing, always turns into am intellectual or theological discussion by defaulting to the natural mind, instead of being led by the Holy Spirit of God in Christ. The natural mind receives not the things of God, so if I have lost you it is not because of some emotionally driven understanding that I have, but rather, you cannot receive on a spiritual level, shall I call it the “wavelength” which the Lord actually transmits on, to his actual followers.
So then, physical Israel must then become the focus of prophecy, as that can be understood to some degree within natural understanding on the world stage. I see allot of posts on Israel and the United States as an example within so called Christian blogs, video transmissions, books and so forth, yet this is all irrelevant, as it is simply leaning to natural understanding; which an actual disciple shouldn’t give a hang about, as it is all based in carnality and human pride.
I am using this passage in Matthew 25 to show that fallen carnality is most often used when attempting to teach the Bible nowadays, it is showing how men will not endure sound doctrine, but would rather have their ears tickled by what they wish to hear! In the beginning of the texts it plainly states [Matt 25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.]
The Kingdom of heaven is speaking to, the Kingdom of heaven which is inside of all those who are with the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. The Bridegroom is Jesus Christ himself, whom actual disciples know and are supposed to abide in as a faithful bride. The Harlot Church [Rev 17] in contrast are those who are unfaithful and “none of his”, who are drunk on the blood of the saints (spiritually speaking) and the martyrs of Jesus.
To teach that the one set of five virgins are for the “church age” and that the others five virgins are in “the time of Jacobs troubles” the 144,000 found in Revelation 7 (after the admittance to the wedding, then wedding feast, is ludicrous to put under the microscope in this manner), as the passage taken in contexts is speaking about being ready for the wedding feast of the lamb – and does not include those who were unprepared in having and abiding in the Holy Spirit of God, which is symbolized by the oil in representation!
To me, this is the mixing of apple and oranges in using eschatology, while attempting to tie in the ten virgins of Matthew 25, the five of which were not ready, can not to my understanding, be tied into Revelation 7. Luke 12:35-37 will take allot more prayer and research, in seeing if the texts are in proper order and translation; which I suspect the meaning has been unintentionally mis- written, or lost in translation, as it would seem to conflict with other scriptures to best of my knowledge?
And even if there were some obscure spiritual meaning in relating to the blood line tribes of Israel towards the end of the age, this would not negate that these elect are any different than any other elect individuals of God, with the exception that they are attempting to understand an event which could even be a millennium off in the future, which surely doesn’t concern them nor the ten virgin allegory as found in Matthew 25: 1-13. This is a tough one, but I am confident I will be shown, if it concerns me in the future.
I write this tonight as I am reminded of a brutal election, and many Pastors took the position that Christians should not concern themselves with the “things of the world”.
As a principled conservative, who believes in a Lord God honoring culture, I feel it is only right to cast a vote for the representative who will best represent my views.
Now of course I do realize, that the Lord God of Israel is still on His throne and will allow or disallow whomever and whatever he chooses to do, and it is my ultimate goal to indeed follow Him first in all that I do, with His leading in my life to the best of my ability.
What I do not comprehend, is if I vote for the one who most closely represents the majority of my personal convictions, how than could I be wrong? If my representative in this fight would lose an election, that would not diminish my faith in the Lord in the least. Neither would it diminish who I am.
So why are so many condemned as not being a true follower of Jesus Christ, being that they cast a conscientious vote, and some are condemned for not voting as well? To not vote is a matter of the will, as is the decision to vote. But since I am speaking about voting as being worldly, allow me to continue with my assessment. To me it is an absurd position to be condemned for voting, even if that leader turns out to walk in wickedness at a later date. That would also have no reflection on me or the principles which I hold dear as a person.
Rather it is my feeling that it is the one who does not know who they are, or what they believe in is the issue. Many of which are being tossed around by the every wind of change, the newest viewpoint or teaching, the polls, these are the most ungrounded and unprincipled types of people to me, often projecting onto others a type of false guilt, for being involved in the marketplace of ideas.
If one is so disgusted by politics and politicians, then don’t vote, don’t hold an opinion about the world stage, or events of your time. Be a fatalist if you like, and just trust in your Lord, and simply move forward with your life. That is fine with me, but how dare this type of characters cast aspersions on other brethren, who may be involved in their community’s policies, of being less than committed to following the Lord in all good conscience. To my way of thinking, that is passing the wrong type of judgment, while projecting oneself to being beyond reproach within their personal spiritual walk.
Of course no man, no matter how well-intentioned, will ever be able to obtain flawless governance (as only God could do that). Yet the real question is what is the character of a leader, and how well can they complete a given task. Leadership is measured by results, and destructiveness and waste has never been the sign of a good leader. So if you are fortunate enough to have a say in who will be a leader, (and many do not) why then would you sit ideally bye especially when given a direction you don’t agree with?
I feel we are to be good stewards of what we have been given, extending outside of just our homes, to “down the street” and beyond in all we have been made stewards of. Speaking as a retired military man; in no small way within our Republic should we not be proactive in protecting what we have been given.
The bottom line is, if you feel led to vote, vote, if not then take a pass, but lets not confuse discernment with judgment. Jesus said to render unto Caesar what was Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s, when he was being trapped by the Pharisees. So there is no shame in us doing the same.
The founding fathers, although many were associated with the Mason’s, and admittedly have designed Masonic undertones (witchcraft) in the layout of the capital, were visibly built using much Roman architecture to reflect the Roman republic, prior to Augustus Caesar in 27 BC.
This new Constitutional government was designed to focus on individual liberties, without the interference of an all-powerful and oppressive central government, or Monarchy’s so common in the old world for centuries.
Federalism, although misunderstood today, is actually based on the limitations of a centralized government. Federalism was designed to put limits on power, by a breakdown of powers in using checks and balances in the different offices created to protect liberties, rather than rule by sheer unadulterated power over the people. It is limited by State powers, Counties, and local Municipalities’. Anti-federalist, (used to traditional European rule) debated the Federalist’s years prior to legal bills being voted upon, and then finally ratified by congress into the U.S. Constitution.
The objective of this new system of governance by the founders was to take advantage “by design” the wickedness of men, by instituting checks and balances’ of powers. This was to become the grand American experiment never attempted before, which eventually changed the world forever, in the course of human endeavor and productivity, whose people enjoyed an unparalleled freedom.
In the beginning, the “new” United States of America, would not allow foreign governments and banks to manipulate their currency, as it was considered a direct part of the people’s labor and considered subservient only to the people, like their newly formed government was designed to be.
America was not immune by attacks and being manipulated by foreign powers. During the American Civil War, world banks and secret societies including the Jesuits in Rome, attempted to undermine and destroy the union, and Protestantism, as to possess and reap the benefits of a very fertile land and its people.
Abraham Lincoln understood that divide and conquer techniques were being applied from all those who would benefit from the nation’s demise. Slavery was always understood to be one of the greatest devises used in opposition to “a more perfect union” as Lincoln put it, since the inception of this new Constitutional form of Government. The Emancipation Proclamation was proclaimed by executive order by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863 to the rebellious states for military reasons, and because he believed abolition of slavery was the only sound and just solution within the Constitution.
Nowadays, what I consider to be a lot of half-baked, and half-truth conspiracy theories exist today upon the internet. Some are purposely put forth for political reasons, and others are a conglomerate of different historical facts and figures which tend to produce self-fulfilling prophesies and ideals, while still others are done in ignorance, and an out of contexts understanding.
Relativism as taught in many a progressive school, has also produced a blurred understanding of events and powers associated with the “American Experiment”, which in my view, has been more successful than any other form of Government ever produced by humanity in the history of the world.
This is not to say that a believer in Jesus Christ, in any way shape or form should worship such man orchestrated institutions, yet perspective does demand that they be placed in balance within the fallen world.
Jesus said that his kingdom was not of this world, and it certainly is not, so we must focus on him alone within our daily lives and not be distracted by earthly events. Yet if we are to examine earthly institutions, it is only appropriate to do so with a balanced perspective while understanding truth from twisted truths, (otherwise known as lies).
May the Lord God of Israel bless you with the light in which to understand all things within perspective.
In this post, I wanted to share my story about my Cocker Spaniel “Molly” and her consistent desire to please her owners.
For a short time in my life, I raised finches. These little birds would answer me when shouting “birdies” from my bedroom in the morning, they would even take to using my hair in the construction of their nests, but never any dog hair!
One day I decided to open the top of a constructed bird-cage which I had made, as the store purchased cage soon grew much too small to house all my birds. It was a regrettable move, for as soon as I opened the top, all my bird flew out within the house.
It seemed about a half hour went by before retrieving all my birds and returning them to the cleaned out cage… All accept the mother bird who hatched all the offspring that is! I was exhausted, even attempting to use a fish net to try to snag this very fast-moving mother, without injuring her.
I had just about given up, and hoped she would return to the cage on her own. Just then, “snap” my Cocker Spaniel Molly, had jumped up in midair and snatched up my bird within her mouth! I screamed out “Molly no”, but it was too late – then my Cocker Spaniel Molly released the unscathed bird from her mouth ever so gently, releasing her into my hand.
Many of us miss out on the understanding our animals have of us, if you are anything like me, we get so involved in our daily lives, that we often miss out on our pets communicating their love for us in a variety of actions…
I have found that we often do this same thing to our heavenly father, who only wishes to show us His love for us.
This will come as a shock to most, yet I have painfully learned about the seriousness or should I say gravity of actually abiding in Christ throughout my life in the following article.
It is natural for a child of God to try to get along with the world, and the worlds people.
Yet because you have been chosen out of the world, it is impossible to ever be accepted by the world’s people, even within one’s own family. You try very hard to be nice and friendly with folks, yet you will never be accepted by them as the large majority of the world are actually children of the devil, and you will never achieve any type of genuine fellowship with them.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you…
We are taught to be friendly and accepting to others, and as much as leis within you, be at peace with all men – Romans 12:18, but never allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security, in thinking you are a part of them. Again, it is only natural to try to fit in, yet this is extremely detrimental to a child of God’s spiritual life with Christ, as compromise with the world is destructive to following the truth, who is Jesus Christ within us.
I have found that one of the biggest obstacles to walking with Christ, is the near look-alike of system religions (systematic theologies) as this is also a part of the world, which is a detraction for actually abiding in Christ oneself. Young believers will find it hard to understand such reasoning, as false brethren adopt Bible doctrines, and even “experiences of God” as their own. Yet they have never seen Him nor known Him.
1 John 3:6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.
(Jesus is speaking about walking in the spirit of truth, the Holy Spirit, who was yet to come).
Acceptance by the world is enmity against God, you cannot serve two masters, yet MOST who have genuinely started with Christ, take the broad road away from Him, in an effort to be comfortable in the world. To a very large degree these broad road Christians have been pressured by society (Church) to conform to loving the world and its people, over actually following Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.
We all naturally want acceptance by the world, yet you cannot compromise which is to prostitute the Holy Spirit of God, for the Spirit of Antichrist which dominates this world and the world’s church systems. (Rev 17 – 18).
This is why it is written in 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Most people think that the “Word of God” is the Bible, loosely speaking the texts is the divinely inspired writings composed of letters profitable for reproof and correction, written to the brethren who are spiritual Israel. However, more distinctly the “Word of God” is a living word which is found in the hearts of those who follow the Lord God of Israel in their “heart of hearts” – simply because they love Him above all else.
John 10:27-29 (KJV) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
At this point, (because this is a blog post) most will spiral downward into arguing theology and doctrines: yet that is NOT my point in writing this post today. Rather it is to show that the “Word of God” to me was found in a simple texts written in the 1880’s by J.H. Merryman, called THE UNITED STATES LIFE-SAVING SERVICE.
“The Lord spoke this to me” sometime after nearly drowning in the Surf at Ocean City, MD., nearly in front of the U.S. Life Saving Museum: a short time after serving my time with the U.S. Coast Guard overseas. I was also very interested in the historic maritime trade and working for the Baltimore Maritime Museum, under command of Capt. Robert Cooper of the Lightship Chesapeake. At the time a floating and operating ambassador for Baltimore City – Recreation and Parks.
A true Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, will understand that our Lord knows our hearts, and the particulars of our lives which will get our attention! It is NOT simply religion we follow, but a living being who speaks to those who know Him, the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Following is from page 12 of by J.H. Merryman’s book, a passage which very personally helped to grow my walk, in experiencing and walking with Christ.
John 4:24 (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Most of those who start with the Lord never register that once the body of believer’s accepts those of a different spirit (1 John 4) within their midst, it is just a matter of time until the spirit of antichrist overruns the fellowship.
Satan, the father of lies, seeks to destroy any actual work of God, by “replacement therapy” that is he replaces the spirit of truth, who is Jesus Christ – with a look alike spirit, or false replacement spirit which is religious in nature.
Remember I am speaking about the spiritual dimension here, and not simply doctrinal or intellectual understanding, which is based on the Bible, rather than dependency upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, who is the Truth of God made manifest to the elect, by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.
John 1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
In the beginning was the word – the “Word of God” this is speaking about the Lord himself, obviously to most, so how is it that a printed texts on a page (Scripture) becomes The Word of God, as commonly espoused? That would be impossible as the Bible was not present in the beginning. It is but a record about God, Satan, and humanity, although divinely inspired.
The Bible is but confirmatory to us who stand on “The Rock”, yet it is not “The Rock itself”, that title is only ever given to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
At this point many will start thinking theologically, even checking my doctrine against the scripture, which is fine, however let me remind you again that I am speaking about the spiritual world, and the ins and outs of spiritual deceptions given by the master of deception, Satan who is intellectually superior to any human being.
So rather than leaning to our own natural understanding, we must instead push in with Christ in Spirit and in Truth!
Rather than becoming mired in thought, I write this post today with the hope the reader will understand why most churches – “all” institutionalized churches eventually, lead towards spiritual death. That’s right, it is because no matter how well-intentioned ministers may be, that (perhaps unknowingly) they have taken on the role of Jesus Christ himself in the hearts of many followers!
This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” which is consistently used of Satan since the death and resurrection of the Lord, beware!

I see a lot of Bible based doctrines attempting to be used in support of Dec 25 in celebrating Christ’s birth. This is a Pagan festival painted with Christian names and dates. Luke 2:1-20 (as an example) merely recognizes Christ’s birth, (probably in the spring of the year) yet as a disciple we are NEVER instructed to do “Christian Religion” about any dates or times, even when using the Bible.
You will remember that only the Galatians ever celebrated dates and times, and the Apostle Paul burned their ears for it. He did this for a very good reason, so as not to become distracted away from the TRUTH, who is only found by abiding in Christ the true vine, and not an “antichrist religious’ spirit” which was created by Satan in using natural understanding to divert people away from actually walking with their Lord, each and every day to include the Sabbath, if one decides in his conscience to keep it.
There is a very fine edge between walking in the spirit of truth, in dependence upon the Lord, and walking independent of him, especially when caught up in doing religion about him, but not actually following him. This is in part because some of those who have made a profession of faith, have never “entered in” with him, and even more have never seen him nor known him.
It is my firm belief as in Revelation 13: that the second beast must become as the first beast, “Christian Universal Religious” the same Spirit of Antichrist as started in the Church of Rome. I can only speculate this is because it is Rome’s seven hills (Revelation 17 a Pagan temple rebuilt) who the mother of Harlots and her daughters will reveal Satan, and the Luciferian doctrines which powers in the world worship, (Revelation 18) so that Satan may take his very short reign upon the earth and then Babylon is destroyed by the “SWORD” of His mouth, and the “BRIGHTNESS” of His coming!
Additionally, the world will worship “Satan as God” while performing many signs and wonders, and only the true elect will NOT BE deceived of this very powerful and false spirit, whose only wish is to be put above the Lord God’s throne so he can be worshiped as such!
Be on guard against this “Spirit of antichrist” which has saturated “the Church”, and only continues to grow in strength within the “false vine” – until Satan is revealed and no longer has need for these whores, who are drunk on the blood of the Saints, and martyrs of Jesus!

Henry T. Blackaby – was only half right, as he produced courses and books trying to teach a lot of un-regenerates into Jesus Christ.
That cannot be accomplished by human efforts, nor will teaching the Bible to false brethren, ever produce anything good!

Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote:
The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.Â The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.
A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers”
have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
You will never again out-vote these people.Â It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.Â It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard.Â The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.
The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.
Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness…

This transcript is from an e-mail I received, I don’t know it’s origins, but felt it was worth posting.
Jesus said, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and God what is God’s. In my words; Christ is saying we must make a distinction (daily) about our worldly decisions which HE allows in our lives.
Deciding upon the lesser of two evils is a constant for us as we live and breathe in a fallen world. Following Christ is about how much we allow our hearts to be gripped by earthly concerns, instead of living by faith. If we follow Christ, he will show us what we need to do individually.
I have built my life by attempting to follow my Lord, Jesus Christ. But, the whole of the “moral but corrupted man orchestrated church system” (a form of godliness but not the power thereof) follows another spirit, what the Apostle John coined as “the spirit of antichrist” – and Paul called enemies of the cross (on a personal level).
This “Antichrist” terminology is confused with being “against Christ” but the truth be known, it is really a replacement for Christ in the lives of those who have started with him in spirit – and those nominal Christians who have not. Satan uses this replacement to destroy the walk of the actual ecclesia by using those who may have started with Christ, yet became diverted “to another gospel” (how they view doctrines and beliefs) rather than simply following Christ in obedience to His voice within them. In short, these are people wishing to be god’s to others, specifically when using the Bible to try to justify their independence from God, while attempting to take on the role of “Lord” to others. Psychology calls these type of controlling people “sociopathic”, but that’s another subject in and of itself.
Crushing a young brother or sister in the Lord is not difficult for these “Scribes”, some knowing every twist and turn of the scriptures – just like their Father the Devil! This is why Elders must be Men who Know how to Follow Christ in Spirit and in Truth, and not just a system of doctrines and theology used in independence of God by Satan, and his people.
This being crushed to conformity to the world takes on many forms, not the least which is religion, even when claiming the name of Christ. This is the MOST DANGEROUS to an actual child of God, as it is designed specifically to deceive the actual “would be” followers of Christ, (in Spirit and in Truth).
Personally, my Spirit has been crushed again and again by the “Spirit of Antichrist”, shaking my confidence that I could move and function in the “things of God” on my own. This is how Jesus Christ intends it to be for the Sons and Daughters of God, to the Father. This is why it is written there is but one moderator between God and Man, the Lord Jesus Christ!
Mercifully, the Lord God of Israel knows full well of the deceptive spirit of Antichrist, and Her whore daughters as referenced in Revelation 17-18 for example. So, what the Lord attempts to do for his elect, is to try to show them the truth in every situation they may fall into unaware. Of course this is all dependent upon the heart (good ground) of the believer, and secondarily in having real fellowship with real men of God… Not just “Churchmen” or Biblicists” but real followers of Christ, who truly know and understand His workings (intimately). Many “Biblicists” appoint themselves to these type of “positions of leadership” yet, “have never seen Him nor known Him”, via the Holy Spirit – who cannot sin.
Brethren, are you tracking what I am attempting to write; be not deceived by “every spirit” who claims to be the Lord’s, but test the spirits and hold to Him which is real. (1 John 4).

How sad that so many people who begin with us find that their Christian life is messed up just by lack of understanding, and getting embroiled with the grey monster.
The fog kills us and we need to be out of it. This is the reason why nothing happens in the grey monster, and it never will. Let’s leave it behind
This video is speaking about how Satan takes great pleasure in defiling anything which once claimed the name of Jesus Christ. Michael Wurmbrand in his letter specifically asked that we share his message with as many as possible in honoring his family name.
Sin is what separates us from Christ, even when we have come to him, and we must learn to walk in only Him who dwells within us!
This is the narrow way which Jesus spoke about, and no man made organization is able to hold Him: that is the Disciples job to do, and Revelation 17 reflects why.
