Wake up, Church!

I have written before about the sheep – it is good to be a sheep. However you do need to know Yeshua’s voice, and distinguish what He teaches from the churchianity we have going on today. Never has that been more pertinent to me than when a dear friend requested I look into the Immanuel Prayer process.

I decided to start by watching the video she sent and then looked at some of the practical sessions that people had recorded and put online. This process (and I’m going to provide no links, I do not want to encourage you to go look at it, and if you want to Google is your friend) is guided meditation.

When two people say they see Jesus in different places, wearing different clothes – one says a white robe with a blue sash, and the other says he’s wearing jeans and a tan shirt, I have to say that something is wrong, and that this is an open door to the works of the devil. Why do I say that?

Ok *steps onto the soapbox* because they are not teaching the Law! They are using Eastern mysticism and meditation techniques to validate themselves through experiences, not scripture. Yeshua embodies everything we need to know about the law, how to live, how to love, how to eat, how to treat others, how to pray, how to heal. It’s all in the book!

In fact this came yesterday, at a time when I was seeking – seeking for answers from God for my own situation, church-wise. I just prayed and asked to be shown what God really wanted me to do. The answer came yesterday evening, when this teaching appeared in from of me (it’s OK, it was on the PC, I was surfing the net!).

You need to watch this, and you need to share it. You need to come to a point of acceptance that if your church is disregarding the Law, then it cannot help you to stop sinning, because you don’t even know what sin is.

Are we under the Law, or under Grace?

If your church isn’t teaching the Law of Moses, you don’t know what sin is!

Joel Osteen is NOT a hypocrite!

Does your church have regard for the law? If not, it is time to ‘come out of her, my people.’

Hyper Grace doctrine – why the church is open to being deceived

Christians (awake ones that I know, anyway) talk a lot about deception. We sometimes might sound paranoid, but we are called to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves (Matt 10:16).

So what does it mean to be as wise as serpents?

It means to be discerning. It means to know and recognise sin and the works of the devil. And it’s not easy, I can tell you! I have found over the years that I have been misled, misguided on a number of occassions and on a number of different issues.

Discernment, then, is perhaps like a muscle – that if you exercise it in avoiding sin, that you may be able to see other things which are sinful. A bit like removing the beam from your own eye, before helping your pal to take out the speck from their own, we need to realise that until or unless we walk with God, avoiding sin, we will not even realistically be able to SEE the sin around us.

If we don’t know His word, we cannot even know right from wrong, and if sin is trangression of the law (1 John 3:4) then we absolutely need to know the law.

Grace is a blessing – it’s God’s unmerited favour. Wow! It’s unmerited because I can NEVER be as good as God, and nothing I do can make me perfect. Willfully disregarding the law, however, is not a cause for thanking God for Grace, it’s an abuse of Grace, isn’t it?

I’ve written enough about that before to just redirect you there. Are we under the Law, or under Grace?

The modern church is open to more and more deception because it has turned it’s back on righteousness, as if trying to be righteous is ‘works’ and that we mustn’t even try to be good. How foolish – because if sin is an open door to satan, then ignoring the law and being ignorant of it is an open door. Grace is for the sin you confess! How can you confess your sins if you ignore the law! You can’t.

This is a Hyper Grace doctrine. The church has become reliant on Grace for everything, and we don’t even know what sin we should be confessing. I know someone, a great guy, so warm and friendly, and what I can only describe as a living Christian – he is just a lovely person all the time to everybody. Yet he said to me that the Muslims worship the same God we do, they just don’t have Jesus!

Um…

John 14 6

Without Jesus they CANNOT have God! And no, they can’t even say that Jesus is a prophet, because in doing so they are saying Mohammed is ‘the way’ and we know that Jesus is ‘the Way’ (and the ONLY way).

If we don’t know the Word, we cannot know sin. If we do not know sin, we cannot confess it. If we cannot confess it, we cannot learn to avoid it, and without knowing what sin is, we cannot discern it and avoid deception.

Get yourselves a KJV and read it. I thought reading the KJV would be hard work, but it’s not. It’s easy once you start. At least it is complete. Only the KJV is complete and easily available at this time in history. I really recommend that if you aren’t already, get into the word. Learn the law and try your best to apply it. Ask God to write it on your heart, so that you have joy in it, and so that you might be set apart from deception.

God Bless you

Joel Osteen is NOT a hypocrite!

Nope, sireee Bob – he is, in my view, a more honest ‘Christian’ than many who purport to preach from our pulpits.

You see Joel has abandoned the law so completely that his error is OBVIOUS to us all. I quote:

When asked directly if people whom are openly practicing homosexuals are accepted into the Kingdom, Joel Osteen responded with “Absolutely, anybody is.” […]

Joel does acknowledge that some things are “sin” but says, “I don’t address these things from the pulpit. They only come up in interviews.” When asked if openly practicing gay/homosexual people will be accepted into heaven, Joel Osteen responded, “I believe they will.”

He makes no mention of the need for repentance. (source)

So unlike the churches who teach that homosexuality is sin, while handing round the ham sandwiches on SUNDAY, yep, Joel is NOT a hypocrite.

He is so obviously in error that perhaps it’s time for those churches which have partially abandoned the Law of Moses to reconsider that – specifically in light of 1 John 3:4

I love God and I love the law – it’s what helps me to walk in righteousness. I don’t do it well, but I try. Because I love God, and I want to walk in Yeshua’s footsteps and do what He did. I believe He shows us how to apply the law – with mercy.

Joel Osteen, I pray, is making some pastors reconsider their stance on the Law today.

God Bless you

“Mean, hateful bigot” – Matt Walsh speaks the truth at a Catholic Uni

Oh my. This will depress you, I’m sorry. But we need to know the state of education in our Universities. I quote: [my emphasis added]

On Wednesday, I gave a speech at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. It had been requested that I speak on the subject of religious liberty, a topic near and dear to my heart, as it should be to the hearts of all Christians, especially in light of the government’s recent efforts to force citizens and business owners to participate in, or tacitly endorse, gay “weddings.”

I was warned ahead of time that some members of the administration tried to cancel my talk in the days leading up to it. Many students had complained that because of my writings affirming Christian teachings on life, marriage, gender, etc., I should not be allowed to speak at a college specifically designed to affirm Christian teachings. I suppose all the “controversy” helped drive attendance, as they had to wheel in more chairs to accommodate the crowds. Not that the crowd was filled exclusively with friends and fans of mine. Far from it.

The evening went just exactly as it would have if I’d been giving a talk at Berkeley or San Francisco State. Many of the students who tried to shut down the event showed up in protest. A group of them held a gay pride banner in the back of the room. I took time out of my remarks to explain to them why our allegedly shared faith condemns gay marriage, but they told me they weren’t there to “have a dialogue with me.” OK. Nobody shouted or heckled during my speech, which was nice, but the Q&A afterwards was mostly dominated by one student after another fishing for applause by calmly explaining why I’m a mean, hateful bigot, and so forth. I argued with as many of them as I could before they kicked us out of the room, then I stood in the hallway and argued for another hour.

Most of the kids offended by my arguments and my very presence were upset that I don’t believe in “marriage equality.” Some said they agreed with me but believe my approach is hateful. The word hate was tossed around quite a bit. My words are hateful, my ideas are hateful, my beliefs are hateful. Everything is hateful. Except for a crowd of people pointing at me and calling me hateful. They’re not hateful, remember. Just me.

My favorite comment came from a particularly smug and self-satisfied young man who began by telling me I’m unintelligent and then proceeded to inform me that “Jesus never said anything about marriage.” When I borrowed a Bible from someone in the audience and read Matthew 19 to him aloud, he rapidly switched course and told me Jesus was a man of his time who spoke through — his words — an “ethnocentric lens.” I’m not sure what that has to do with marriage, or how a “Christian” could accuse the Lord God of bigotry, or whether this was something he learned at the school, but the comment made me feel a very odd mixture of amusement and despair. It also made me push Catholic University further down my list of schools I want my kids to attend.

Please go and read the rest here: http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/christians-we-cannot-adjust-our-faith-to-make-room-for-our-favorite-sins/

I’ve said before, and I’ll say it again – this is all because the church has followed catholicism’s road and picked and chosen which laws to hold to. As soon as you begin that compromise, you open the door for more and more until that ham sandwich looks awful tasty, and you find your church is marrying gays. Hold to the Law of Moses, as God instructed us to!

God Bless you

Who is the enemy of the state?

I’ll give you a clue.

*hands you a mirror*

Yep, it’s you.

It has to be or why else would we see stories such as these grace our headlines:

Sweden in total shock as muslim ‘refugee’ rapes girl to death, then continues after she died

This is Why People are Upset with Police — 6 Cops Swarm Man for “Stepping Off Sidewalk”

So just in case you think you actually had any kind of hand in electing the bozos who allowed mass immigration to your country, or pay your police to harrass YOU, well, let’s just really be clear here. YOU ARE THE ENEMY. Mankind, goodness and especially innocence are the ENEMY.

If we are the enemy, then we know that satan is behind our governments, and behind our law enforcement:

So what do we do about it? As Christians, whether we know about each individual conspiracy set against us by people who are evil, we do know the basic conspiracy, which is satan against all mankind. So let us also in that case remember the words of Yeshua:

Matt 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”

Let’s remember to pray daily for those in power, as we are called to do. It’s not easy because we truly hate evil, and we know these people are in the very grip of evil. Yet the bible tells us what to do, Yeshua told us what to do. Pray.

Let’s be awake, let’s be aware – as Peter said:

1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

Satan’s plan is the destruction of mankind, of goodness, or purity and innocence. Whilst we know as Christians what is coming, and what is prophecied, let us also do what we have been called to do – pray – even though we might think it useless or pointless in the face of such evil.

Let’s obey Him.

God Bless you
