The Truth is Worth Telling

Jesus called Himself the Truth but what happens when the truth is ignored? The ultimate result is the loss of justice which results in judgment. Paul warned us that this would be the result of listening to the lies of  ‘the lawless One’. 

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” – 2 Thes. 2:9, 10

Isaiah prophesied what would happen to a people who ignored the truth –

“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice.” – Isa. 59:14, 15

That is the situation that much of the world finds itself in now. Several generations have been taught in public education and college the doctrine of Humanism instead of truth revealed in the Bible. The U.S. Supreme Court says Humanism is a religion, one that believes man is the apex of truth and reasoning. That has led to the subversion of capitalism to greediness and the perversion of truth to whatever promotes their agenda. Under these conditions  are you surprised at what a corrupt government will do? It will use any falsehood, tell any lie, to enrich itself and gain power. The following video illustrates how certain unscrupulous leaders will even use a virus to make money and gain power.

covid19 exploiterThese corporations deal in Billions of dollars and the government is giving them the ability to control our health; of course for a kick-back. Even international governments are involved. China released the virus to bring down the U.S. economy that was booming under President Trump and the Biden’s were complicit in this move. The majority of the U.S. media also is involved in the cover up. Now these same people are making millions on a so-called vaccine to treat the virus they manufactured!

noah-webster-quoteThere is much more I could reveal of government and corporation corruption but, suffice it to say that it couldn’t have happened if we as a people hadn’t given up on the truth. We have forsaken God and His precepts, therefore He has forsaken us. So, how do we recover? We repent! We genuinely look at our own lives first and repent of anything that goes against God’s moral standards. Then we look at the people we elect to government and choose only godly men and women. Next, we look at the church we belong to and ask, “Is it preaching the truth.” “Is it preaching the whole word of the Lord?” If it isn’t, get out and find a place that is! The Church is supposed to be a beacon of light and it is supposed to be preserving salt to the community but, if it has lost it’s savor it is good for nothing but to be trampled in the street!

The ‘latter rain’ will fall before the final harvest on those who are praying for it. The Bible commands that we do this –

“Ask the LORD for rain in the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.” – Zech. 10:1

There is revival coming and it will come with truth which will produce justice and righteousness –

“But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” – Amos 5:24

 

 

 

 

 

Singing a New Song

HR5717As the Biden Administration begins it’s rule, deception is rampant, even in it’s first few days, their intent is very clear. They intend to enact Socialist-Communist type rules and laws on us, all while the news media tells us, it is for our good. One of the first bills out of the House of Representatives is HB5717 which will greatly erode the 2nd. Amendment of the Constitution. Like all repressive governments, they want control over the people and how better to do that than with taxation.

But, if you think the Biden Administration is just after your guns, think again! They are after Biblical based Christianity. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), America’s largest and most powerful LGBT lobby organization and close supporter of Biden, is pushing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to target Christian educational institutions, demanding that the Biden Administration strip colleges that adhere to rules and positions opposing homosexuality of their accreditation.

LBGTAl Mohler, a theologian and president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, sounded the alarm on the HRC’s push in an essay titled “A Direct Threat to Christian Education.” The laundry list demanded by the HRC, he notes, are fundamentally transformational. Their most dangerous proposal is aimed at essentially destroying Christian institutions overnight. As Mohler put it:

The Blueprint states, “Language regarding accreditation of religious institutions of higher education in the Higher Education Opportunity Act could be interpreted to require accrediting bodies to accredit religious institutions that discriminate or do not meet science-based curricula standards. “

In other words, Christian schools would no longer be able to teach homosexuality is a sin as the Bible teaches!

Rashida TlaibUnder President Trump the United States and Israel had a very comfortable relationship and many in Israel and the region wonder if the Biden Administration will continue that relationship or will it go the way of the radical views of the Democratic Squad in Congress. Views expressed by Palestinian Rep. Rashida Tlaib recently

“I think it’s really important to understand Israel is a racist state and that they would deny Palestinians like my grandmother access to a vaccine, that they don’t believe that she’s an equal human being that deserves to live, deserves to be able to be protected by this global pandemic. And it’s really hard to watch as this apartheid state continues to deny their own neighbors, the people that breathe the same air that they breathe, that live in the same communities … a free life, free from these oppressive policies, these racist policies that deny them access to public health, deny them access to freedom of travel, deny them access to academic opportunities.”

Israelis are concerned that the Biden administration may align much closer with the inflammatory views of Tlaib, as well as the policies of Obama, who sought to create “daylight” between Washington and Jerusalem, empower Iran, elevate the standing of the Palestinian Authority and isolate Israel in diplomatic forums. They rightfully worry that the incoming Biden administration will seek to reset the relationship and attempt to undo the progress that has been made and diplomatic achievements Israel recorded, simply because they arose from the wrong administration. U.S. President Joe Biden has already stated that he plans to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran in lieu of the 2015 accord from which outgoing President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018. And the same people responsible for that 2015 accord are being given key positions in the Biden-Harris Foreign Affairs committees.

I have spent the first part of this article listing a few of the consequences of failing to vote for the right person in this last election and now we must learn to live with the outcomes. But they are not final outcomes, nor are they irreversible. The Psalms give us good comfort –

Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. …. For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.” – Psalm 96

We must look to the Lord and sing a new song. Let our song be one of praise to the Lord and not of any government or political party, which are just ruled by men. Let us declare once again that there is salvation only in Him! Stop looking to government for our help and look to Him. Our standing in the nations is not because of our righteousness, or our genius, or our abilities – it is only because of God Almighty and our faith in Him. Be filled with His Holy Spirit so that we may declare His wonders to all the people. After all, that is the way the Church began: being filed with the Holy Spirit and working wonders in His name.

Our work must be one of preparation – preparation for His coming! He is coming to judge the earth in righteousness and truth. So, we must prepare in righteousness and truth. In righteousness by living His word and keeping His commandments. We are to come out from among them and be separate from the world. When the government rules against the Holy Scriptures, we are not to obey those rulings because that will not enhance righteousness.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” – 2 Tim. 3:16

And we are to love the truth. Remember that Jesus is the truth and whoever speaks the truth is speaking of Him. The great deception in these last days will be to pervert the truth. In this, the news media has been used greatly. Remember in the Bible, even prophets were deceived into speaking lies in the name of the Lord. Paul warned the Thessalonians –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Do you remember how many false claims went around this last election? Claims of military takeovers and arrests, claims of Trump declaring martial law, claims of Q sending out mysterious messages, or that they arrested Nancy Pelosi escaping across the southern border. Well, remember what Jesus said about His coming.

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” – Matt. 24:23-27

Now, if the spirit of Antichrist will try this with the Lord’s coming, he will sure try it with a presidential election! We need to listen to the wisdom of James, “So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speakslow to wrath;” (James 1:19). And we need to remember that we are just pilgrims here and our citizenship is in heaven. We are children of Abraham by faith and by faith Abraham was looking for a heavenly inheritance –

“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. . . . For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” – Heb. 11:8-10

So, we need to be about the work of the Kingdom and not be taken up with the various conspiracy theories that are out there. Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matt. 9:37). and this last election has shown us that there are multitudes who need Jesus. Remember, we are disciples of Jesus and He gave to them power –

“He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.” – Matt. 10:1

In case you think this power was just for the original 12 disciples, Jesus’ last message in Matthew was –

“And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” – Matt. 28:18-20

Friends, that commission has not ended, no matter what happens in the world. So be of good cheer, God is still with us.

Standing Our Ground

Leftist in the United States, mostly Democrats, have pushed hard to eliminate the rights of conservatives and Christians, from the taking down of crosses and the Ten Commandments to schools celebrating Easter and Christmas. And now New York leftists are even attacking our freedom of speech saying those who uses the term ‘illegal alien’ can be fined up to $250,000. Continue reading

Stability in the storm

iran clockI have not written for a week or more because I have just been listening and watching events that are happening around the world and in our country. The volume of the reports are almost deafening.

War is simmering in the Mideast and it is apparent that God is holding things in check until His timing is fulfilled. Many have been predicting eminent war there and I have also thought that it must come soon, but God is once again proving that He alone controls the destiny of nations. All anyone can say for sure is ‘watch and pray’ because it could happen at any time!

lightning_capitolThe political climate of western nations is swirling around like hurricanes with tornadoes and volcanoes mixed in to keep the tension high. In America, the political pun-dents are running around like chickens proclaiming the ‘sky is falling’! over every move President Trump makes. They have forgotten, if they ever knew, that it is God who raises up and puts down rulers at His pleasure. I believe one thing is certain – God is using President Trump to restrain control-hungry world leaders and politicians until He is ready to move. In the process the Antichrist kingdom is also forming and its leader may already be on the scene. Remember, in the Bible, God left the Hebrew children in Egyptian bondage until the sin of the nations of Palestine had reached their climax.

“Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. … But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete. – Gen. 15:13-16

Israel, Ensign for the nations

God is in control, even of the timing in which events happen, and He moves nations and men like chess pieces to fulfill His purposes. We may not understand all His purposes but one He has made very clear – the nation of Israel will return and eventually say “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord” as Jesus predicted.

“for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ ” – Matt. 23:39

The wars that are coming in the Mideast serve two purposes: 1) to judge the nations that have opposed God and, 2) to humble Israel and cause her to call upon the Name of The Lord and recognize her Messiah, Jesus.

God always finishes what He begins! He began the nation of Israel with a calling and He will bring them back to fulfill that calling. He also began the Church with a calling. We see it displayed in the Book of Acts and He will bring the Church back to this calling. The latter rainChurch began with Pentecost, which was called the ‘former rain’ of the Holy Spirit, and there is a ‘latter rain’ coming which will conclude the Church age. The Church is not going out as a defeated woman but as a victorious Bride by the power of the Holy Spirit! Remember, when the Church began it was full of Jewish believers and that is the way it will be at the end as well. The One New Man will be complete!

“having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,” – Eph. 2:15

However, Jesus Himself predicted many would leave the faith before He comes. He said –

“…  when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth? – Luke 18:8

Paul predicted there would a great falling away before the Lord came back –

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition (Antichrist)” – 2 Thes. 2:3

The present church is full of wheat and tares, the true and the false, and it appears the tares will outnumber the wheat. Paul warned the reason this happens is because of the truth. Many loved the world and its unrighteousness more than the truth of God –

“and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:10-12

This is a hard saying and not many preachers want to preach it. They love the numbers and tithes more than the truth. And it is important to realize this is not speaking of some humanist or politically correct truth but of the truth that God proclaimed in the Bible. Jesus claimed this and you cannot be related to Him without agreeing –

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” – John 14:6

Not many ways to God – only One. Christianity is not a co-regency of authority. It is the only way to eternal life. It has love for all but, it cannot co-exist with all. Because of its love and concern, it must strive to save all by showing the true path to God – Jesus Christ.

To Vote or not to Vote?

the downward slideThe United States is locked in political combat, mostly between Democrats and Republicans. Even though only a relatively small number of Americans are actively involved in the infighting, all will bear the consequences of the battle. It is somewhat like a mini-Civil War dividing even families. For the most part, the muskets and cannons are missing, but damage is still being done. And as it was during the Civil War, Christians are being drawn in on both sides.  I believe the same events are happening all over the world. How can this happen? Continue reading

War is upon us!

war with gog Jesus said there would be wars and rumors of war but, that these would just be the beginning of the birth pangs that would mark the end of the age.

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. … “All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs).” – Matthew 24:6-8

Judgment on the House of God

flood verseGod is speaking in many ways, to His people and to the world. In a recent article named WARNING, I highlighted a few of the ways God is speaking. He is warning of coming judgment and I reminded you that judgment begins at the House of God.

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” – 1 Peter 4:17

Lies and Deceptions Abound

worn BibleI recently wrote about the absolute need for truth, in our personal lives and in our national life. There is no freedom without truth. Of course, the main truth is God’s revelation but, political truth is also important to our everyday lives. We know that in the last days an Antichrist will appear who will raise the art of lying and deception to an ungodly level. As the Apostle Paul wrote –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Deliverance

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me to preach good tidings to the poor: … To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” – Isaiah 61:1, 2

This is the message Jesus began His ministry with, a ministry He passed on to His Church – those who believe in Him and put their trust in Him. It is not a message of “greasy-grace” or “sloppy-agape” as some would teach. God has not changed, nor have His standards changed. God still hates sin because it separates us from Him. What this message does do is present all of us with a way to escape the consequences of sin. The Bible declares –

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23

Free at Last

Mankind’s old nature is corrupt and cannot change so God made a way for us to be “born again”, to become a new creation through the Son of God, Jesus Christ. The consequences of sin is death so Jesus stood in for us – though He was sinless, He was willing to die in our place on the cross of Calvary. If we are willing to repent of our sin and acknowledge Jesus as our substitute, His Holy Spirit will do a re-creation in us, then the Spirit will begin to work in us to help our “new man” grow strong enough to overcome the old nature and follow Jesus in a new life. Though this will be a life-long work, as we daily choose to follow the Spirit’s leading, we will begin to look and act like Jesus. Continue reading

The Last Days for America?

the last days

As we move closer to another Presidential election we need to consider what is really at stake. In light of the prophetic signs that come to pass recently it should be obvious that we are nearing the end of the age. For those among you who are younger and for those who have been asleep or too taken up with everyday living to have noticed, I will list a few of the recent prophetic events:

  • WW I – Jews return to Palestine – Balfour Declaration
  • WWII – Israel becomes a nation – 1948
  • Jerusalem back under Jewish control – 1967
  • United States begins official turn away from God – prayer removed from schools – 10 Commandments removed from public display – 1960’s
  • 1960 through 1990’s United States continues moral downward slide into apostasy
  • September 11, 2001 1st Harbinger strikes America as Islamic terrorist bring down World Trade Center Towers
  • 2011 world-wide mass die-offs of birds, fish, and animals begins
  • God sends a prophet to America with the warning of Isaiah 9:10 – Rabbi Jonathan Cahn reveals the Harbingers
  • 2014-2015 God sends  heavenly signs – a Blood Red Moon Tetrad – only the eighth since Jesus’ 1st coming – each time signaling historic changes
  • Pestilences, earthquakes, revolutions and wars increasing dramatically
  • Economic collapses in 2001, 2008, and 2015 highlighting Harbingers and Shemitahs (Sabbath years)

I have not listed the obvious building of tensions in the Middle East that signal to approach of the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars. These and many other signs are meant to alert us to the lateness of the time. A time when the Bible declares an Antichrist figure and government will appear that will try to eliminate Israel and Christians from the earth. It is obvious that to accomplish these goals the United States will have to be removed as a world power. The best way to do this is to get the United States to leave its dependence on God who has been its historical power source.

burning dollars

This is exactly what has been happening. For the sake of the promise of money and prosperity, that never appeared, Americans elected the most anti-Christian president we have ever had . No friend of Israel, he is also no friend of Christians. Here is a partial listing of his actions over the past eight years and I would remind you – actions speak louder than words!

sum of all lies

  1. April 2008 – speaks disrespectfully of Christians accusing them of “clinging to their guns and religion and having antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”
  2. February 2009 – He announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs”, and fully implements the plan in February 2011.
  3. April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, he orders that “a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech.”
  4. May 2009 – He declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. (Instead, he honors a Muslim prayer day.)
  5. April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, he nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three.
  6. October 19, 2010 – he begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions.
  7. November 2010 – he misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus Unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law.
  8. January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court.
  9. April 2011 – For the first time in American history, he urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. (Of course. Muslims are exempt from obeying the federal mandate known as Obama-Care.)
  10. August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception.
  11. November 2011 – he opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial.
  12. November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, he studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech.
  13. December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights.
  14. January 2012 – The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis.
  15. February 2012 – The Obama administration forgives student loans in exchange for public service, but announces it will no longer forgive student loans if the public service is related to religion.

obamas ringOf course, I am referring to Barack Hussein Obama, the most anti-Christian president the United States has ever had. And the above is just a sample of his presidential actions. They have occurred without fanfare because a liberal press mostly agrees with him. As long as the people get their government provisions on time most of the publicly educated in this country don’t seem to mind. As I list these factual statements and actions, I am not inferring that President Obama is the beast of Revelation, only that his words and actions may portray the way in which the beast will act.

As we consider our upcoming election it would be good to remember that Hillary Clinton will at least continue Barack Obama’s marxist trend of government or worse. But, it would wise to consider that the Republicans by in large did not resist Obama’s government even though they controled both the House of Representatives and the Senate. In some cases they passed budget bills giving him all he wanted and more! So why should we expect they will give us a candidate that will point this country back to a Godly agenda? With this in mind, I want to include a video by a decorated Army general who is a strong Constitutional Christian conserative – Lt. Gen. (Ret.) W.G. (Jerry) Boykin.

The facts General Boykin listed are well documented but have you taken them to heart? Is the Pastor of your church warning against them? As a good watchman I have warned you now you need to act. The very least you can do is pray that God will deliver us and prepare us to weather the coming storm. In this age of electronic media, you could also share this message with all your friends – even though they may reject your warning.
