I personally know this faith to be true in this life many a time, and I was with Jesus when my heart stopped! If we KNOW him now, we know him for eternity!
Calvinism – or not?
To me, the rub is that people apply what I call “linear thinking” to a non-linear and transcendent God, who is not trapped by time and space. He is already all-knowing of our future, yet still allows people free will to choose.
To the natural mind, this sounds crazy to say one can choose Salvation by the Gospel of Grace as a personal choice; while also being Divinely Ordained by Foreknowledge… Much like quantum physics, it is even more insane to try and hold the same natural principles of logic of our reasoning to the Lord God, who is not trapped by physical nor a linear existence.
Remember, within the scripture, time, space, and even the will of God by prayer, have been altered. An example of this is with David concerning Saul, (1 Samuel 23:7–13) which allowed the Lord to alter the course of what was predestined to bring Glory and worship to God – himself.
In short, just like in the physical world where we are governed by the law of gravity, the spiritual world is governed by the law of faith – rather than our intellectual theology.

HOW THE APOSTLES DIED
Of course, I didn’t write this, yet these Apostles of Christ suffered greatly for the Gospel. In contrast, most of the “western churches” nowadays won’t even be bothered to assemble together in fellowship! Furthermore, Communists are much more committed to their cause than most believers in Jesus Christ. This is certainly tragic, but is it any wonder that Western Cultures have suffered so greatly from pluralism and the “science god”!
1. Matthew. Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, and was killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark. Died in Alexandria, Egypt, after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke. Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous preaching to the lost.
4. John. Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in a huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death.
John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos. The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey. He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully
5. Peter. He was crucified upside down on an x shaped cross. According to church tradition, it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6. James. The leader of the church, in Jerusalem, was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club.
This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7. James, the Son of Zebedee, was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry.
As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded in Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial.
Later, the officer walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
8. Bartholomew. Also known as Nathaniel. He was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present-day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia, where he was flayed to death by a whip.
9. Andrew. He Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony.
His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words, “I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it”. He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.
10. Thomas. He was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Subcontinent.
11. Jude. He was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.
12. Matthias. The apostle who was chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot. He was stoned and then beheaded.
13. Paul. He was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero in Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament.
Our Culture War
In this chapter, Isaiah the prophet is instructed in what to do by these people who will not recognize the Lord. The believer cannot remain idle within the world in which he lives; we must fight the good fight, then God will judge and pass sentence.
Keep America Great!
It’s not up to us!
A lot of theologians make the mistake of applying linear thinking, to the transcendent God of time and space. This is why I call this video “It’s not up to us”!
In the Name of the Lord
The Love of God was the action of sending his Son to die for our sins. It was not done to justify sin, it was to be transformed into Christ’s likeness.
Mark 13: 4-6
4) Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5) And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: 6) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

WALL OF SEPARATION
Before the world can get to the place of having most everyone receive “The Mark of the Beast” on the forehead or hand (Revelation 13:16). Nationalism but be replaced by Globalism, and you must condition people in how they will buy and sell. In Christ, the world enjoys freedom, but in Lucifer, one can only be enslaved!
Love for the Truth
A Need to Know
The Lord doesn’t need us to understand everything, but he does need us to trust him as we move in obedience to his callings.
Ever wonder why you never hear talk about enemy powers taking control of regions of the world, or the cost of energy, food and medicine, and what is planned to do about it? All you ever hear about is what the controlling forces in the world want to be foremost in the public mind!
Psalm 14 1-3 14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. 2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Romans 1:18-20 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation
October 3, 1864
By the President of the United States of America
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and even soften the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and provoke their aggressions, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict; while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a Day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that, while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation, and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Stated States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

Rich and Poor in the Church
Philippians 4:11-13 11) Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12) I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13) I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
First Baptist Church KI Ordination
Today I sat in the “hot seat” @ KI Baptist, committing myself to leadership in further service to the Lord at our little fellowship. Please pray for my growth and continued service.
The time is short before all hell breaks out on earth, and we should be diligent of our surroundings and events, in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ! You will forgive my shortfall in speaking, as for some odd reason, in front of the camera; I cannot seem to go from taking off the top of my head to exacting memorization of the scriptures.
Foreknowledge does not necessitate predestination: 1 Samuel 23:7–13
Foreknowledge does not necessitate predestination:1 Samuel 23:7–13 It is very important that we take the whole of the scriptures within the contexts they were meant to be taught. Human beings get bogged down in certain points of the scriptures within their natural understanding, so it is always indispensable to follow the Holy Spirit as we grow into a deeper understanding of who God is, and what is of paramount importance to Him. I have discovered that no matter how many studies I may do, that only when I have a “need to know” some deeper or more personal part of the scripture, only then does the Lord reveal it to me. Up until that point, I do the best that I can with the Bible. I’m not at all sure the Lord wants us to understand everything in scripture until we are required to know it!!! I made this video off the top of my head, if you require more details, I will have to pray and look them up within the scriptures. Thanks for watching!
These Democrats disgust me, they tear down and destroy everything “the Builder” achieved, then have the gull to come up with the slogan “Build Back Better”!
Pelosi rips up the “State of the Union’ to the greatest economic come back since WW2, then they act as if they are not responsible for all the malcontents and national destruction they caused in hating Donald Trump and his supporters!
They are all nothing but thieves and lairs, in office for years, who hate anyone who can show them up for who they are… “Build Back Better, from what we have destroyed”, should be their truthful motto!
All happening in a once-great nation that now hardly has an economy, deviant schools agendas, a people suffering from Biological Warfare, Suppressing Treatment Doctors, for Trillion Dollar Global Gene Therapy Experiments to a scared population, while not enough supplies or food on the shelves for people to eat! All this while flooding the country with illegals in ignoring our laws, saying you are concerned for any public health and security! LIARS, and Trump haters, who couldn’t care less about our Constitution and the working citizen, but only to steal their hard-earned money!
COMMUNISM and Government Controls OVER a population has never worked and never will!
Wake up, all you dumbed down, brainwashed NEA schooled Americans, who have been taught to interpret and spin the Constitution into something it was never intended to be!
The Private Market and individual liberties to innovate is what we need, not numerous Mandates by greedy Tyrants!

Rule of the Deep State Technocracy
It is interesting, about a month ago I made a Facebook header featuring the 1930 Technocracy movement and explained how the world bankers wanted digital money and control. It went on to say that fear is used (like a global pandemic) to herd the masses to one’s will and control! The meme header is still there, but it’s the first posting I have seen that is “whited out” by FB to the public eye!
Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of what the Democrats have done over the past 15 years or so (and continue to do) isn’t really the process or the damage they have done to our governing institutions. While that was and is devastating, the fact they have actively encouraged and condoned actions which, under a Republican administration, would have had them screaming for prison sentences and executions, have had the effect of emboldening the minions buried within the Deep State.
Let us not forget that, in the first 5 years of his two terms, President Obama purged almost 200 senior officers – one stands out in my memory, the case of Gen. Carter Ham who was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi.
