Carousel of Time – Part 2

For each ticketed rider, their experience riding the carousel of time will fluctuate from one to another and yet death comes to us all.  Nevertheless, one such experience stems from our ambition to answer the purpose of life question, which is ubiquitous in all living souls and the answer is clear, though it remains elusive to those seeking significance in this temporal life.  The 21st Century offers an unrestricted accessibility to God’s word and supporting evidence because in times past documents were scarce and in today’s climate too many people have caged themselves within a personal dark age.  While cautionary signs reverberate through time, offering heartfelt advice that we ought to “[b]e sober, be vigilant; because, your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Nevertheless, with unrestricted access, arises two types of kinetic energy (positive and negative) and when Satan, “the god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) produces writings that masquerade as the “word of God” this infiltration of kinetic energy is blinding too many souls.

Perhaps the greatest method of attack during the earlier three-hundred-years is the discipline of social engineering and their efforts influencing societal attitudes and behaviors towards a large-scale increase in moral depravity.  Narcissistic arrogance breeds a predisposed and incessant belief in the right to control and shape societies evolution.  These architects of new social constructs make known their “Luciferian doctrine” while posturing themselves as self-appointed autocrats and criticize biblical moralities as intellectually inferior and intolerant.

Generations, like revolutions of the spinning carousel, deliver new social trends which the greatest are malevolent and derives from the children of the Serpent.  With every revolution, new trends surface and current trends fade into oblivion, with an exception where one will intermittently reemerge.

Our adversary, Lucifer, he is hellbent on your destruction and it ought to behoove every soul to reckon the warning that “the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out (of heaven) into the earth, and his angles were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).  The New Testament Christian has the benefit of warning signs along the path they tread and while many ignore these written signs, such as “let no man deceive you by any means” (2 Thessalonians 2.3) to their peril, the sad reality is they rely upon subjectivism as a truth meter.

Jesus the Christ said, “the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge…in the last day” (John 12:48) and the obedient Christian ought to heed these words of Christ.  The overall significance of these words, should behoove all obedient followers of the Lord to make sure they have all the correct words from the Lord and not ninety-nine percent?  Poison has steadily been injected into Christianity from the first century right through the twenty-first century and “for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets…(and) insomuch that, if it were possible, they should deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24).  Present-day conditions have not changed, there are “false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will privily (secretly) shall bring in damnable heresies…” (2 Peter 2:1) and those who are not being taught or studying to make sure they have one-hundred percent of Christ’s words are more alert to falsehoods than the brainwashed follower and they often get caught up trusting false teachers.  False teachers from Steven L. Anderson, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, Benny Hinn, Fred Phelps, James Dobson, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Paula White, John Hagee, Les Feldick, Ray Comfort, Rick Warren, T.D. Jakes, and Pat Robertson, etc., not one is a legit teacher, prophet, healer and the sad reality is that their only god, is the Almighty dollar.

History has recorded that Christians suffered extreme persecution due to their unwavering obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ and while the 21st Century through political correctness, have redefined persecution of Christians by labeling them intolerant, which then has silenced the church.  Knowledge of different eras, such as the “Dark Ages” remain unclear within the spectator class of the church, in fact, today is rife with religious conflict and vilification of those whom fully submit to the New Testament.

Discernment of the “Dark Ages” derives from two opposing perspectives.  The New Testament Christian reckons this moment from history, as explicitly autocratic and these Christians, they rejected the papal doctrines and hierarchy; as they strove to recreate a pure Christianity based upon the New Testament.  On the other hand, the followers of the Pope and the Roman Catholic church, believe this same time period as religiously fruitful, along with the unified message, which is often elusive.

Throughout the historical record, intellectuals having postulated a theory; a theory that those who have embraced (any) religious beliefs have fooled themselves and creating a false accepted point of view.  Full disclosure, there was a time when I believed that religion was a crutch, for the weak to endure life and in the summer of 2004, I joined the ranks of those follow Christ Jesus.  There are many parallels between the First; Fifteenth, and Twenty-first centuries.  Sound biblical literature has always been scarce and other biblical works teach emotional, not factual, which cast a veil of doubt.  Nonetheless, citizens across time have ignorantly rejected sound doctrine from God and join forces with all the other children of the Devil.

Kids today, find it difficult to grasp the concept of growing up outside, let alone the technological advances in my lifetime and the increasing rate of these advances is mind-boggling.  Nonetheless, as sand flows through an hourglass as morality exponentially declines and the popular thought of the moral decay in the ancient Roman society, is a foreshadowing for America’s own ruin.

The carousel of time offers you a limited window wherein you can obey the gospel plan for salvation, through hearing, believing, repenting, confessing, and being baptized will place in the church that Christ built.  The winds of time echo with a reminder that each day is a gift and not a given guarantee, so leaving no stones unturned in your journey is paramount.  As we walk through the temporal life, remaining steadfast in the words from the book, Second Timothy and chapter three, beginning in verse one: “[t]his know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away,” illustrating the characteristics of true darkness.

Wishing you grace and blessings on your journey towards the light.

Carousel of Time – part 1

Life is a one-way ticket to ride the carousel of time.  This carousel of time perpetually spins around, and around, and around.  Its forwarding motion, never decreasing its momentum or reversing direction and yet, as human beings, we often live life in reverse.  Each revolution advances this temporal world closer towards extinction.  Every ticket has the exact expiration date stamped upon it and this date is elusive and only known by the Creator.

Therefore, humankind ought to recognise their journey is neither an audition, run through, where there is no curtain call and each ticket represents a birth of a new-found joy.   The human journey is sporadic from one day to the next, one guarantee is your departure (death) into that boundless existence where time is void.  Life is experienced between our first and last breath, this period introduces us to a variety of theories, theories that attempt to answer life’s biggest question, “what underlies the human existence?”  The practitioners of these theories take every opportunity to teach and discredit the Bible.  Perhaps chaos is the devil’s greatest tool, the commingling philosophical, scientific, and theological philosophies to detract from God’s absolute truth.  Contemporary Christianity has been successfully infiltrated by Satan and his demon children and their efforts wherein creating doubt through his subtle insinuation of “[y]ea, has God said” (Genesis 3:1)?

So, what is life? does it derive out of chaos? Is life a free-for-all with zero consequences or maybe, just maybe, life has a divine blueprint from the Creator.  The Holy Scriptures put forth the question, “[f]or what is your life?” and is unequivocal in its answer, “It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14).  “Little time” should be expressly interpreted as prudent in an individual’s preparation for their final exam, which follows one’s life coming to fruition.  Disinformation agents plague the narrow path lurking behind every opportunity wherein smooth words tempt souls towards the wide path of destruction.  Beware of the children of the devil as their destructive force travels like a rolling thunder and Christianity’s annihilation is their goal.  Devilish agent provocateurs are ruthless, they occupy positions within denominations, government, academia (secular and religious), as well as family and friends and their tenacity has paid off.  The 21st Century citizen no longer fights against this evil, they accept the propaganda that Christianity is a control instrument and is intolerant of others.

As Christians, defending ourselves against our adversary, the father of lies and his children of evil intent requires faith.  Faith, not just any faith, but biblical faith.  Is there a difference?  Absolutely there is.  What does the Bible have to say on this matter, “[s]o then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17) and it ought to behove every student of the Bible to make sure they have all the words of God.  Christ Jesus says, “the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge…in the last day” (John 12:48).  Since we only have one life to live and whether or not you accept the Bible as your only authority in all matters or dismiss it as fiction, there will come a day then you draw your last breath and then comes judgment.

So, before you breathe your last, recognise that we fight “not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places…take…the whole armour of God, that may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13).  Avoid becoming one of those “[p]rofessing themselves to be wise, (as) they became fools” (Roman 1:22) and find that you have not “[p]ut on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Does It Really Matter?

The 21st Century, is the only period in history, with an almost unrestricted access to the words of the LORD.  Flooded with a plethora of bible translations in English and while each translation is different from one another, Christians speak of these translations as though they are one in the same.  This mindset, mirrors that of the principles that underlie the ecumenical movement and it ought to go without saying, “it is asinine, to suggest that which are in direct opposition with one another, be defined as unified.

When the children of the devil create distortions in a translation, they do so with malice and they know that mainstream Christianity is lackadaisical, which ensures the gullible will blindly accept their versions.  The lies in these modern versions are obvious to the prudent and the neutralization created a negative for professing Christians, who employs subjectivism as their truth meter.  Mainstream Christianity in the 21st Century has kowtowed to outside pressures and fear that they might be identified by a derogatory term.  If some Christian kowtows to societal ideologies, that individual has ignorantly accepted of the law of “Thelema” (i.e. religion based upon a philosophical law), which says, “do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law” (Aleister Crowley).

A warning went out in the 1st Century to the followers of Christ Jesus and this warning is applicable in the 21st Century.  The Lord stated that obedient Christians ought to “[t]ake heed that no man deceive” them (Matthew 24:4) and this warning has been ignored by the contemporary mainstream follower.  The perpetual flooding of English bible translations that are marketed to the unsuspecting Christian and created another perplexing division in Christendom.  Modern translation committees propagandize their words as the preserved words of the LORD and claim the differences are not fundamental, nor do they negatively affect God’s message.  Having asked the question, “does it really matter?” I offer three examples:

Example #1Psalms 12: 6 – 7

  • The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7Thou shalt keep them, O LORD; thou shalt preserve them [words] from this generation for-ever.” (KJV)
  • And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven time. You, LORD, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked. (NIV)

Example #21 John 5:7

  • For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one”. (KJV)
  • For there are three that testify”. (NIV)
  • For there are three that testify”. (NASV)
  • For there are three that testify”. (ESV)

Question: Does this even matter?  A large majority of professing Christians, desire those who are willing to answer the call of “[p]rophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits” (Isaiah 30:10).  Many modern translations, insert footnotes, which inject doubt and this tactic, is like Satan’s questioning, “[y]ea, hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1).

There are numerous examples of these differences, without delving into the origins of their supporting manuscripts (whether they derive from the regions of Alexandria, Egypt or Antioch, Syria), example #3, is perhaps the best illustration of the New International Version (NIV) viciously attacking the Lord Jesus Christ and in the most despicable way.   

Example #3 – Isaiah 14:12

  • “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” KJV
  • “How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the national!” NIV

Lucifer, he is unanimously recognized as Satan, nevertheless, the NIV translation committee made the decision to replace “Lucifer,” with “morning star” and when the Christian allows scripture to define itself, then the relevance becomes clear.

  • Revelation 22:16 – “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (emphasis mine).

The NIV’s use of “morning star,” indicates their intentional motive, for casting Christ Jesus as an evil figure and to insinuate that Jesus is a fallen creature; cast out of heaven for desiring to be “like the most High (Isaiah 14:14). There is unequivocally no doubt the Devil wants control over the LORD’S church and he has been relentless in his assaults, which are so subtle as compared to a “shock and awe” tactic that would expose the manipulations that underlie his endeavors.

Having barely scratched the surface, I hope, you will be motivated to research these differences and “[n]ow I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).

Only Dead Fish Go With The Flow

“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matt. 11:15) and hearing the word of God, this is how true faith is obtained.  Faith that originates in any other fashion, is pseudo-faith and that is why only dead fish go with the flow.  Who are the dead fish, simply, they are the rebellious souls that defy ALL of the Lord’s commands and reside outside of Christ.  Those caught up the ecumenical movement are prime examples of the dead fish and their disobedience, has caught them up into Satan’s raging stream of disinformation.  His stream, leads southward, towards a swirling drain of decadence and eternal darkness.  As friction, has been generated between two symbolic streams, which flow in opposition to one another and produces two classifications that identify Christians.  Christ Jesus explains in the sixth chapter, of the book of Luke and his opening question is as germane nowadays, as it was, when he spoke these words, 46“why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”  Jesus continued, explaining group one: 47” [w]hosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”  Nonetheless, Christ identifies group two in verse forty-nine, 49 “[b]ut he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the steam did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” Consider the sports “fan,” the fan is zealous and when the fan’s team win, the fan will proclaim “we won!” while remaining safely on the sidelines.  Then there are “followers,” followers advance onto the spiritual battlefield and risks their well-being for the cause of Christ.  However, do not be deceived, Satan’s consumption of these “fans” (pseudo-Christians) is staggering and this is no doubt to their ignorance of the devices of our adversary.  Whereas, the true follower, strives daily to remain obedient in all things commanded by Christ.  It is without doubt those Christians who continue in Christ Jesus’s word, then and only “then are ye my disciples” and excavating the commands of Christ, will reveal absolute truth “and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).    So, if you are willing set aside your denomination, creeds, commentaries, and concordances, rely upon the Bible and the Bible only (sola scriptura), it will shine a light on false teachings.  Having the Bible as your final authority in all matters, requires no man to teach you and it is up to you to study “to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).  While many pseudo-Christians are quite gregarious, zealous, and biblical illiterate.  They have been in custody of false teachers and they eagerly denigrated obedient followers and corrupt the scriptures.  I beseech each and every one of you, to earnestly contend for the one faith and that only come from hearing the word of God.  Remove yourself from the denominational stream of disobedience and if you do not, “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie” (2 Thess. 2:11).

No Mistake, there is only one church!

one-lord-imageIn a world overflowing with disinformation, whether that be with media outlets, government indoctrination centers (i.e. government schools) and within mainstream Christianity; agents of ill repute dominate the ebb and flow of social development. This has been achieved through the social programming of the youth and it is the root cause for the abandoning of independent thought. It can be clearly observed in our present-day environment, as the regurgitation of knowledge so-called has decimated the human race and this has mentally imprisoned humanity, as God’s absolute truth is so elusive to them.

Nowhere, is this more problematic then in the identity of the Christian church. The diversity of doctrines being propagated to ill-informed audiences, has been so successful that their efforts, have fractured the individuality of the Lord’s church and as many have and continue to depart “the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” A self-centered society that relies upon subjectivism and recoils in offense to truth, is without question, won over by those who tickle their ears. The apostle Paul said, “O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord” (Acts 13:10), which perfectly illustrates society in the 21st century.

There is only one Christian church and that church is only described in the New Testament. So, with this one church, comes one teaching, and one way to properly obey the gospel plan for salvation. The modern definition of church has been relegated to a structural building and not the biblical description of “the” church. If you (the reader) self-identify as a Christian and have not asked the question, “does my modern-day church obedient the biblical pattern?” Does your church’s doctrine parallel with the whole guidelines of God’s teaching? Those desiring heaven, must remain watchful and the devil having perfected his craft, of convincing some they are saved, when in fact they are not!

Properly obeying the instructions for biblical salvation, are as follows:

  • You Must Hear the Word of God – Romans 10:17
  • You Must Believe that Christ Jesus is the Son of God – John 8:37
  • You Must Repent, Changing one mindset – Acts 17:30
  • You Must Confess Jesus Before Men – Matthew 10:32
  • You Must Be Baptized for the Remission of sins – Acts 2:38
  • You Must Remain in Obedience – 1 Timothy 4:16

 

If your church does not have its origins in Jerusalem on the first Pentecost day following the resurrection of Christ Jesus, you are not in Jesus’ church. All faiths and practices not found in the New Testament, place you outside of Christ and the principles by which Christ’s church is governed, derives from the New Testament, alone!
