I can’t take credit for the title of this post, that honor goes to Brother Justin Hughes, whom I fellowship with. Yet I can share that a couple of years ago now, the Lord showed me that the “man of sin” (the Devil) will be seen as the “God loves everyone” model, which most of the churches deceivingly seem to follow and preach.
Recently, I spoke with an old minister friend of mine, from my days in street ministry. He was upset that Breitbart news had done a story on a NY Cardinal affirming the Pope’s (Antichrist’s) comments to a gay man who were (more or less) conservative Roman Catholics.
Yet the real problem is that nowadays (a Bible understanding) Satan, deceives by twisting doctrines which are only written to be understood by actual brethren, and sends them forth to the religious’ about Jesus Church, (false brethren) better understood to the world as systematic theologies or doctrines.
This carnal understanding to the natural mind, is the inroads Satan has always used to deceive man. Whereas, truth is only understood by abiding in Christ, our lifeblood into the kingdom! Drunk on the blood of the Saints and the Martyrs of Jesus, is actually talking about this spirit of error, or spirit of antichrist, in those who have started with Christ, yet will not be conformed to Christ’s image, nor are they willing to “enter in” by way of the cross (enemies of the cross) !
Instead they take the broad road, mouthing doctrines of the Bible, and claiming Christ’s Holy name, apart from being crucified in him. This is Satan’s Jesus, who is unholy and loves everyone! A work of “the butcher” himself, to undermine, confuse, and ultimately destroy those who have started on the narrow road towards life everlasting – now!
The Pope (Chief Antichrist) is only the “mother of Harlots”, yet there are many, many, more of her offspring, some of whom started off with us, but became diverted to another gospel. Or natural (carnal) understanding of the scriptures, in nearly all cases nowadays. This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” who John first spoke about. This spirit of error had come, and was also coming.
The line of demarcation today is not Roman Catholicism and so-called Protestantism as it was in the past, nor is it even the Bible or non Biblical teachings – but rather it is only identified by 1 John 4, of what Spirit is someone of? It is my firm belief that Satan’s coming as an angle of light, will deceive and destroy many, and indeed all of the world will worship and follow him straight into the pit for everlasting destruction!
Most Biblical scholars cannot even distinguish between the terms Antichrist (s) and Satan himself, as to them, it is all dependent upon Biblical contexts in a particular passage. This is an example as to why without the revelation of the Lord God, even the greatest of scholars are limited in their (natural) understanding.
Therefore, it is my contention that the unveiling of the Devil will probably begin with the Global Antichrist, and filter down to the local Antichrist (s) (Satan in a Jesus suit, clergy) who will “kiss towards” or worship the destroyer of the actual ecclesia, by their close surrogate for Christ – the world’s church systems and their all loving Jesus!
I have been warned not to try to impart what I plainly have been shown by my Lord, to the world and the church beast, as it will do no good to those who cannot or will not see. I’ve been instructed that the equivalent scripture is in Paul preaching the Gospel, and immediately withdrawing so that he too would not become a castaway (Disqualified). As it is too easy to be distracted by the things of the world, and even doctrines, than to simply continue to abide in the true vine, who is Christ himself, who is our Salvation!
Isaiah 60: 2 (From Benson commentary)
For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth — Ignorance, idolatry, and all kinds of errors and vices; and gross darkness the people — Like that of Egypt; the most palpable blindness and infatuation as to divine things; but the Lord — Christ, the bright and morning-star, the day- spring from on high,
This is where we are in human history now, it is just a matter of time till the man of sin is unveiled. Yet as promised in Isaiah, Satan shall be overcome by the sword of his mouth, and the brightness of his coming. This is the New Jerusalem, the city upon the hill where we shall rule and reign with Christ for a thousand years.
Black and White: when I was in the Army as an equal opportunity advisor to the commander, the school celebrated a book written by a professor which disputed the very idea that the color Black was associated with evil, and in contrast, that the color White was associated with good! Is this where civilization has come to nowadays?
To my understanding, now (SJW) educators are challenging our children on this very basal issue of being brain washed by the establishment, in believing that the absence of light (darkness – blackness) is depicted as bad, and that (white) light, which overcomes the darkness is now somehow evil.
This concept at the very root level, is actually a rebellion against the long understood principles of humanity, and although perhaps not realized, the Lord God Himself, and any truths which he alone is the creator of! Of course this is all politically based biased thinking, in an effort to overthrow any statutes of the past, and is an attempt to throw away any beliefs of a righteous God.
This is the perfect illustration of what Isaiah 60 verse 2 is speaking about, currently underway to the latest generation! Darkness and Gross darkness covers the people… We have thrown away the Lord, who is the light of the world, for Strong delusions, which the Lord God has seen fit to hand those over for their own destruction, who have rejected him and any of his ordinances!
This is all prophesied to happen towards the “end of the age”, and I submit to you that we are on the threshold of the destruction of Babylon, the destruction of the loosely cobbled together feet of iron and clay, which I view as global multiculturalism, to use modern day terminology.
2 Thessalonians 2 The Great Falling Away. 2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition…
I will not attempt to convince anyone of what I can plainly see taking place today, especially in using the scriptures, as this is the same mistake most churches make in trying to teach people into light – truth/Christ, it just cannot be done. As even understanding is a gift of God alone to a naturally darkened mind (Spiritually speaking).
And this is the basis of all light to the world, and without Him we can see nothing, I’m waiting to see the son of perdition be unveiled next!
I once had a soldier who served in France during World War Two tell me candidly “dammit, you dig your own foxhole, if you jump in mine at night, I’ll kill you”!
I served in the military from 1980-2007, I can remember my father saying that the Army had never changed since he was in! I was excited about that, and the manly bond I would develop with my brothers in arms. I was raised on the pledge of allegiance to our flag, took shop classes in school, and played Army with the boys around the neighborhood.
GI Joe’s were our toys of choice, we would dress them for combat against the enemy, as it was our duty to protect and defend our way of life, family, and liberty!
When I became a man, I enlisted to serve our country, and the noble land I had come to respect, in no short measure because of my accelerations in the Boy Scouts of America, who taught us reverence foremost, and last in the Boy Scout oath. We were morally straight, and that meant exactly what we thought it meant – straight, not a deviant from the moral code of the family structuring!
We defended our positions of moral leadership, in preparation of someday providing and protecting our families from the evil forces in the world, which would threaten our great land. All of the men in my family since the American Revolution served in the military for at least one enlistment, as this was what was expected for a man to do, in all the generations past.
My father, my grandfathers, and before would have been appalled at the idea that their daughters would venture into a Navy shipyard, or Army barracks, for fear of what might happen to them! Is that culture wrong for holding such values? I think not, as these values (roles) which evolved as the most effective means to secure the family for the next generations to come.
Of course these are also godly values, which the Creator designed us to live by, and the more one strays from this design, the more complicated and corrupt a society becomes. Douglas Mac Author said it best: “Pluralism is the enemy, the longer it is allowed to exist, the bigger and bloodier the wars it creates!”
Natural law, is appalling to progressives, as it lends restrictions to “an all embracing pluralism”, which at its furthest limits, cannot even distinguish between right and wrong, good or bad – as relativism becomes God. This is why all the philosophers I have ever spoken with, seem distant and even ungrounded from any type of absolutes! This is where the limits of human understand reach their end. Or as Solomon put it, “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity…”
This was the basis for the Western cultures, which have been immensely blessed throughout history. Or what some might call the Judeo – Christian principals. When you discard these principles on the ash heap of history, as being antiquated, you are actually declaring that the Lord God our Creator is antiquated, and you enter into the darkness of natural understanding.
So, to get back on point, we now have a military which is “all inclusive” of everyone and every life style, which by its very nature must exclude the values I have aforementioned from our past. Equality is a myth, it does not exist, nor ever has! It is the lie (false narrative) which only allows the most powerful groups to maintain control over the masses, it is mere tribalism when all the different peoples who happen to be in power, insist upon their own lifestyles! Democracies cannot function when everyone insists upon their own ways!
What should we teach our boys who will become men, and our daughters who bare the offspring of our men? Are they equal, or are they created differently for a reason? Many nowadays would not even consider such a question, as that might infringe upon their (so called) rights!
In speaking with a Soldier buddy of mine at Ft. Hood, TX. He informs me that many women now take the testosterone hormone, so as to keep up with their male counterparts in the infantry! This is what gives me so much disgust, as I remember back to a simpler time when only men were allowed in combat arms, and rightfully so! It seems to me that the white straight male, is the only one excluded from having “rights” within our military today. If a female (for example) cannot function well in a field environment, the male soldier is at the very least, brow beaten to conform to the “New Army culture” and asked questions like; “are you saying you don’t want her in your foxhole”?! If the man answers in the affirmative, his career, and possibly even his personal freedoms become endangered by officials who are more concerned with their (political) careers, than they are with what is most effective and advantages’ to the whole of their troops! And, I am talking about the lives of both men, women, and deviants there of…
The military used to be able to legally discriminate based upon its needs, now it seems to me they only discriminate against the glue, in which once held together the very fabric of the esprit décor of the American Armed Forces.
Scriptural references: (which are only written to an actual disciple)
Of course, I am most guilty of violating the so called establishment clause, which not only separates Church and State, but wholeheartedly wishes to overcome any of its restrictions within society today. For, like righteous Lot; I am “vexed by the filthy conversation of the wicked” 2 Peter 2:7.
The “Church” is guilty of trying to teach the wicked by carnal means, the things of God, which are only given by the Lord to his people, they do not apply to the general population, which most evangelists fail to understand! 1 John 4: test the spirits, Matthew 7:6 give not which is Holy to dogs.
As for my people, (Spiritual Israel – not carnal) “children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths”. Isaiah 3:12.
Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them; Joshua 1:14
Manly men…. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Corinthians 6:9
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonians 2:7. – IS WELL UNDERWAY!
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Isaiah 60:2.
Come quickly Lord Jesus, the whole creation groans for the revelation of the sons of God!
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.
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.
