“The spirit of king Herod…Alive and Well Governing California.”

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east and are to come to worship him.

When Herod the king had heard theses things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is written by the prophet.

AND THOU BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDA, ART NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE PRINCES OF JUDA; FOR OUT OF THEE SHALL COME A GOVERNOR (ruler), THAT SHALL RULE (shepherd) MY PEOPLE ISRAEL. 

Then Herod, when he had privily (secretly) called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. 

When they heard the king, they departed; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with his Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, frankincense, and myrrh,.

And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt.

And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, OUT OF EGYPT HAVE I CALLED MY SON. 

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked (deceived), of the wise men, was exceeding wroth (angry), and sent forth, and slew (murdered) all the children (male babies) that were in Bethlehem, and in the coasts (districts) thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy (Jeremiah) the prophet, saying, 

IN RAMA WAS THERE A VOICE HEARD, LAMENTATION (sorrowful wailing), AND WEEPING, AND GREAT MOURNING, RACHAEL WEEPING FOR HER CHILDREN, AND WOULD NOT BE COMFORTED, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT (all have been slaughtered).” Matthew 2:1-18 

Now that was a seriously evil, power hungry person, I really don’t know that by that point Herod was still even a person, I truly believe that they chose to cross so many lines that they willingly allow their bodies to be a dwelling for the demonic.

For the record the capitalization is not mine, the Bible capitalizes when it refers back to prophesies that are being fulfilled at the time of that writing.  It is heartbreaking even reading that passage, that he sent forth, sent forth to slaughter all the baby boys that he thought was a threat to his power.

A supposed power that drives humans mad once they really believe that with a stroke of their pen they have supreme power over life and death.

Bad, bad idea, no one other that God has that authority but like Herod, politicians today, in a blood thirsty attempt to hold onto their perceived power and prestige will and have sold their souls to the devil himself and will slaughter anything and anyone to please the crowd that holds their political purse strings.

And just when you think they have already crossed every conceivable line in human decency, they adopt a new law, a new cry, a new death warrant to be served on the unborn.

And again, and I am going to keep saying this, because it boggles my mind, sex is not  a requirement, such as breathing, there are countless, free, birth control methods available to everyone and there is always the just say NO option.

Is is really easier to slaughter a baby than to use contraception or hold off that fling until you can go purchase contraception?

And all of those screaming, protesting in their rage demanding these rights, so full of hatred never even realize that any institution that will have no regard for life will also not have any regard for their lives when they are no longer necessary for their agenda.

If they will allow the killing of babies, why would anyone else have a right to live? The sanctity of life is in the fact that all life is precious.

Once a civilization becomes completely uncivilized and starts killing its own members, that cavillation has crossed the line and there is no coming back from that.

Every species on earth reproduces for the sole purpose of ensuring the continuation of that species, and humans have proven themselves to be the most unintelligent beings in existence simply by killing off their own kind.

Even if one chooses not to believe in the truth of God the Creator, common sense should kick in with the realization that if you kill off your offspring, soon there will be no one left.

Right now, seniors are expected to outnumber children by 2035, and as they are passing more and more laws on the right to end life, euthanizing the elderly and all who in their opinion will no have “quality of life”, my guess is they will be speeding up that process also.

HOW can people not understand that they are literally killing themselves.

Are these babies, if allowed to be born going to take a bite of food from their mouths? Are these babies going to suck up all the oxygen and leave them all breathless?

Are these babies going to use fossil fuel and cause a climate change catastrophe?

Well, there is the movement all up in arms about earth’s supposed overpopulation, Sounds like a line out of Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol” to me, everyone concerned about overpopulation, when oddly enough, they are part of that population overage.

But what it really comes down to is this, good old fashioned geocide, but these guys are so slick that they have convinced some to demand the right to be exterminated, no fighting it, no seeing it for what it is, it is extermination of their own species. 

And instead of fearing that, they have convinced the angry mob to go out and demand it!

So now Newsome has decided that it is not enough to allow the murder of the unborn in his state, not enough to pay for those murders, but now, now he himself, has sent forth, he has sent forth to all of America, that if needs be, he will offer up his state and the finances of his state to ensure their right to self-extermination. 

Herod didn’t have a thing on California, he would have congratulated the leaders, he would have reveled with them because it is that same spirit.

He was not going to allow any child to replace him as king, and these leaders will not allow the unwanted birth of a child to potentially oust them from their political thrones.

Truly mind numbing, casting that net as wide as all states in America, with travel provided, all abortion costs completely paid, with a reported thirty one billion possible in play.

Normally one would say, Pray for them that they would see the truth and repent.

But remember when the angry crowd called for the crucifixion of Jesus, they were so consumed with blood thirst that they called for the responsibility for the death of Jesus to be on them and their families.

And I tell ya, that is an awful lot of blood, as if the blood of the Californian aborted babies were not enough to be held in accountability to God for, now to willingly make themselves accountable for the blood of babies that they do not even govern.

But in this case, pray that people will take responsibility for their sexual behaviors, abstinence truly exists.

Pray they will become responsible for the fact that by engaging in intercourse that they could parent a child, a child who did not ask to be conceived and that they will take responsibility for that conception and raise and love that child, not exterminate it as if it were a common pest.

Pray for the unborn babies, pray that the mothers will chose adoption rather than extermination.

There is no difference in the geocidal exterminations of entire groups of people and the deliberate extermination of our own people.

We are given some very pivotal verses,

Galatians 6:5:“For every man shall bear his own burden.” 

This correlates with Romans 2:2-6: “But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to the truth against them which commit such things.

And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

Or despisest  thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance, and longsuffering; not knowing the goodness of God leadeth to repentance?

But after (because of) thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 

WHO WILL RENDER  TO EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS;”

The wickedness of their hearts so great that they have fallen past normal emotions, in so much that have no shame or remorse for any action taken or allowed.

Galatians 6:7: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

James 2:13: “For he shall have judgement without mercy, that hath shewed (shown) no mercy.”

Last Days Part 2/ “Never give an inch until you know the real cost”

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast (living creature) say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse; and he that sat upon him had a pair of balances (scales) in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of of the four beasts (living creatures)  say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny (denarius); and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine”  Revelation 6:5

This is picking back up where we left off in our study of  America, oh, err… Mystery Babylon the Great 😉

Yeah, well we know it’s not that much of a mystery now, and I am just going to get real honest right here… Now would be a really good time to let it sink in that the end time lady, who brags that she sits a Queen and is no widow is none other than America the Great.

This is hard for anyone to deal with and I have wrestled for years with my calling as a messenger of tidings that people often do not want to hear, I didn’t even want to acknowledge it myself, much less proclaim it .

I love America, I love my people but just as God brought judgment on Israel of old, we are no different and he actually said this, “For, lo, I begin to bring evil (calamity) on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished; for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.” Jeremiah 25:29

That’s the problem, the nations have been deceived and rebelled against God and God will judge that and no nation is so entitled and so righteous as to be above God and his commands, that is the transition from Blessed Great to Wicked Babylon the Great.

We know that the name of Babylon is her spiritual name, she is referred to as a mystery because her identity was not foretold, as she did not even exist as of the time her rebellion against God and subsequent judgement and destruction were foretold and prophesied by prophets of old, including Jeremiah, as Jeremiah had Seraiah read his written words of the judgments laid out by God and then throw the book into the Euphrates it would reflect as the end time angelic activities directed toward earth, 

So to go on with, as Columbo would say, “That cat’s outta  the bag”, very interesting term, even more interesting for our purpose here, the origin is not quite certain, and there are several, but it is a term for the revealing of an act that is discovered to have been a deception.

One thought is that merchants would suppose to sell someone a baby pig, but once money and the bag containing the pig had changed hands and the buyer went their way and later opened the bag to find a cat instead.

Hence therefore also, our term “A pig in a poke.” and our southern warning, to never buy “A pig in a poke,”

And people, hear me, all the inflation, rising gas prices, merchandise shortages, and shipping stockpiles are being used in conjunction with the forced vaccine mandates, to sell you nothing more than a very deadly “pig in a poke” and what is going to be found at the bottom of that bag is far worse than Corona and five dollar gallons of gas.

Lets first talk about financial judgment  God brings against nations.

One warning here that God gave against nations forgetting that all blessing comes from him and his provision.

And when you apply this to the thought that God allowed the pilgrims to come to this land, and whether people want to deal with it or not, America was originally settled by people who only wanted to serve God, Jehovah God, without persecution and fear.

They gave up everything and many died in the process, they left everything and came to a foreign land with nothing waiting for them, except freedom!

They had no prebuilt homes, they had no provisions laid up waiting for them to arrive.

They came only with faith and unimageable courage, and they came to worship the one true God, and even with their poverty, starvation, sickness, and toil they did not give up, they did not complain and they were thankful, they were thankful because they were free!

The evil ones came later, the Indian killers, and land stealers, and evil, evil slave traders, and all the evil and wickedness that has borne the beast that the Babylon has become, that same evil force that  crept in and deluded minds and literally possessed politicians that now just your basic common affection has gone out the door, and the slaughter of millions of  our own babies proving that every single day, and the desire of many to allow abortions to nine month term is truly a horrific development.

And you have to wonder when these people scream about this being a right and not bat an eyelash to the fact that this is a human being, this is a baby, this is a child who if born a month early to parents who wanted it would be given specialized care, but not wanted would be labeled, full term, as a ‘product of conception” and absolutely murdered at the hands of someone professing to be a doctor, who has taken an oath to do no harm!!??

Slaughter is about as harmful as it gets! So again, don’t question why.

But I will tell you this also, as we get into this study further, we will be looking at the end time inability to die, which I believe is judgment because they no regard for life, so when God rains down judgments and they think they can commit suicide and escape it, he supernaturally takes away their ability to die, no matter what they do, they can not die, and they will not die until he allows them to die, once and for all  assuring all that he is the Creator and he is ultimately who will control death and life, as was the original intention.

I am so thankful for the Godly leaders that are standing up and fighting against it, they will be able to stand and give account to the Lord that they did do everything in their power to stand for what is right.

So let’s take a look at that warning.

“Thou shalt also consider (know) in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee.  Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways and fear him.

For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.

A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates, and oil olive, and honey;

A land wherein though shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.

When thou hast eaten and are full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 

Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues, which I command thee this day. 

Lest when  thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly (beautiful) houses, and dwelt therein; 

And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

Then thine heart be lifted up (becomes proud) and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought the out of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought forth water out of the rock of flint.

Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove (test) thee, to do the good at thy later end. 

*And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine (my) hand hath gotten me this wealth. 

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth , that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. 

And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.  

As did the nations which the Lord destroyed  before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 8:5-20

Now let’s read a little of those judgments being pronounced. Shall we?

“A sword is upon (against) the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and her wise men.

A sword is upon the liars (against the soothsayers, physics), and they shall dote (be fools); a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.

A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon the mingled people that are in the midst of herand they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.

A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up; for it is a land of graven images, and they are mad upon (insane with) their idols.” Jeremiah 50: 35-38

We will be coming back to this chapter, Lord will, in a later post, but this is the Lord calling for a sword, which means, supernatural divine judgment, against all the mediums,  psychics and sorcery , and the weaponry, which we have already seen a little of that one, but will get more into later, but also we see us, the land of mingled people, a land made up of all races, mixed and all inhabiting one nation, Babylon the Great, and we see that sword upon her treasures, and if you will remember, we discussed that in a prior post with great detail.

So you can see that the economic collapse will come as a judgment so  there will be no human correction of it, but what will happen and is happening is that it is being used as a tool and will be used as a tool to literally starve people into submission, submission to an agenda that is so dark and so evil and will ultimately lead to the anti-Christ’s enactment of the mark of the beast.

At this particular moment, the screws are tightening, threats of defunding for every reason known to man, have been going on for awhile now and have just escalated with threats of either vaccinate or lose your jobs and if these rules aren’t enforced by the companies who do not even necessarily want  to impose these demands on their employees than whatever funding, in some cases, that they depend on will be taken away.

It comes down to forcing people to forego their rights and liberties, to do as they are told in order to have food, shelter, and necessities of life and to establish the “normalcy” of socialism, you know, spring it on you a little at a time, making more ridiculous demands with each step of the process and each step of teh process having greater financial consequence if “disobeyed”.

At the end of teh day is just one more of teh pigs in a poke that America and teh world are being saddled with, and this is not a vaccinate or not vaccinate post, we must make our own choices, but make sure it is a choice of your own choosing because it is all just part of groundwork being laid to one day lead people to the ultimate choice.

A choice for your soul, when people have been starved out and the demand is made take this mark, sware allegiance to the devil incarnate and sell your very soul for the ‘privilege’ of buying food  for a body, that after having received the mark, will then immediately fall under tormenting judgments, so tortured to even eat and a soul now lost to be condemned to an eternal hell.

Don’t buy their pigs in pokes, remember the pigs that legion was cast into, well, these pigs are carry the same cargo.

I’ll end it with our beginning scripture to put it all in prospective for you, a penny might not sound like much, until you realize that refers to and entire day’s wage, read it again, and ponder that.

The Zondervan KJV Study Bible dictionary note explains it as this, that would be about one quart of wheat, barely enough for one person, three quarts of the barley, which is not having much nutritional value, would be what a family would have for their meal.

The penny is equivalent to an entire day’s wages, famine causing prices to be ten times higher than average.

So for us, that would be like working an entire day for one slice of bread.

The wine and oil refers to the children of God, so trust him and do not do anything until you pray and ask God’s guidance and then have your boundary and let no one force you to cross it, because once a personal boundary is crossed, the enemy is one step closer to ensuring that we have no boundaries and then he will us.

“Last Days, Angels Sounding… Talk About a Climate Change!”

“And the same day, when the even was come (it was evening), he saith unto them, Let us pass (cross) over to the other side. 

And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there was also with him other little ships. 

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full (filled with water).

And he was in the hinder part (stern) of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master (Teacher) carest thou not that we perish?

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, saying, Peace (Silence), Be still.  And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner (kind) of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Mark 4:35-41

One of my favorite accounts! Wow, can you imagine being one of those disciples!

Of course they knew Jesus and knew that there was something so extraordinary about him, and of course they would know that he was and is indeed the Son of God, but can you truly imagine when he arose, Oh, so many good things happened when he rises!

But can you seriously imagine the wind and waves deathly calm as he spoke Silence to them! No wonder they were afraid!

This was the moment that they realized as mere mortal men that there is no limit and no equal to the power that Jesus wields.

Now that was a Climate Change!

Which is exactly why I want to talk about the subject, for starters, let me just elaborate that I personally love our little planet, I love Earth, I love its beauty that He created, and I love all of his wildlife and living creatures, and it is a constant wonder when you consider all the species, sub species, gigantic beings and microscopic living creatures that he chose to fill earth with, alongside of us.

But I can’t take much more of the climate change speeches, and the fruitcake ideas of shooting  chalk-like substances into the atmosphere and punishing consumers with sticker shock, mention of which, we will get into what’s going on with that soon.

But just so  you will know, I do truly love and respect our planet, but I also believe that God has given us resources to use for our good, of course that doesn’t mean rape and pillage and destroying the rain forest, but to use what he has given us wisely.

But at the end of the day, all their climate change initiatives aren’t going to matter at all.

Humans need to start focusing on the real climate that needs change, the climate of God hating, baby-killing Babylon and be concerned more with the weather to come than the weather that is.

We’ll back this truck up a little to the Old Testament, we see Jesus’ supreme authority in our verse above, but let’s look at a few other verses that reaffirm what Jesus has already proven when he came to earth and silenced the sea itself.

Psalm 93:3, 4: “The floods have lifted (raised) up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice: the floods lift up their waves.  The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the waves of the sea.”

Psalm 65:5-7: “By terrible (awesome) things in righteousness wilt thou (you will) answer us, O God of our salvation; who art (you are) the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea.

Which by his strength setteth fast (established) the mountains; being girded with power: Which stilleth (quietens) the noise of the sea; the noise of their waves, and the tumult (confused, disorderly outcry) of the people.”

What the disciples witnessed:

Psalm107:23-30: “They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

For he commandeth and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end. 

Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he brighteth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calmso the waves thereof are still.

Then they are glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.”

Psalm 89:8,9: “O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea; when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.”

For what is and what is coming, just to hit a couple from the end time warning signs Jesus gave us. I hit on this with the series “Heart Series” you can click that link and read those but I would strongly suggest reading Luke Chapters Seventeen and Twenty-One, and Matthew Chapter 25, for everything he told us concerning the end days.  I know that is a lot of reading but you could listen to them online on the Bible website.

I just encourage to please study these things, that is why God gave us his word so no one could deceive us, and there are those who are trying to already do that and the deception will only grow worse.

Luke 21: 10,11 & 25,26,27: “Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and great earthquakes in divers (various) places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

Now verses 25-27: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexitythe sea and waves roaring; 

Men’s hearts failing them for (from) fear, and for looking after (expectation of) those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”

I have written on this before but I am doing all the verses here and I want you to know the silence in heaven, in my belief they are praying for us, for the inhabitants of the earth, praying and having a moment of silence before the destruction to come.

Revelation 8: “AND when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

And the smoke of the incense which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. 

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices (noises), and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast (threw) upon the earth; and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast (threw) into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 

And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and a third part of the ships were destroyed.

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp (torch), and it fell upon third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains (springs) of waters;

And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter (poison).

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten (struck), and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not (had no light) for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying, with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices (because of the remaining blasts) of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet (about) to sound!”

Put’s a whole new perspective on it, doesn’t it? Again, this is why you want to accept Jesus, so you will not be on this earth when this comes down during the judgments.

Lord will, we’ll get to those other three soon as we move through future studies.

I want to give you one more example, now this takes place after the judgments, when Jesus will physically reign on earth in New Jerusalem, which we will also get much deeper into, but mention of which, now you know whynew heaven and new earth are coming, but dealing with our subject for this post check this out:

Zechariah 14:16-19:”And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 

And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that (they shall have) no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen (strike the nations) that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 

This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations that come not up to keep the feats of tabernacles.”

So there we have it! Climate change? I think should be more of a concern of attitude change! But I will end it on this, words from the wonderful Apostle Peter.

2 Peter 3:10-13: “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works therein shall be burned up. 

Seeing then (understanding that) that all these things shall be dissolved. what manner (kind) of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation (conduct) and godliness, Looking for and hasting (hastening) unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens, and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

And as to why, we don’t need me again to tell us why, all the wickedness, and refusal to repent.

Psalm 46:6:” The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted.”

Wherefore are thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat (winepress)?” Isaiah 63:1.2

We are listening in on this conversation. The first question posed is who is this that cometh in glory, appearing in his own greatness. He answers that he is he who is mighty to save, so know this is the Lord speaking.

The second question is Why is your clothing red? And even more inquisitively and descriptively, Why is your clothing splattered red, as if you have been trampling grapes?

We’ll get to all those answers in a bit, but I want to remind you of a verse from the last post, Revelation 17:16: “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore (harlot)…”

And we know that Mystery Babylon the Great is referred to as a female, so when I use her and she, I am referring to the country that is being referred to as the Great.

We were told that the ten horns are ten kings and they hate Babylon the Great, even though she had made them rich, not only through imports of goods, but through all that they had gained from her and through her policies and financial practices of aid and presumed goodwill.

You know kinda like America dishing out billions of dollars for programs such as gender equality research, world-wide abortion funding, and many other programs that have nothing to do with helping others with food, shelter, and water, you know the things that are truly needful, but why worry about that when they are agendas to be pushed.

Droves of financial aid doled out like candy to those who would just as soon see us destroyed and will use our tax payer’s money to do just that, but in the same breath seek to withhold much needed funding for Israels Iron Dome, and those who do bother to know God’s word, know that God actually said this, Genesis 12:3:“I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee…”

But I am sure they laugh, because they don’t believe and they don’t believe that they will be cursed of God because they haven’t seen it yet, but that my dear friends is why the Bible lists the judgments.

The judgments only come after they refuse the truth, God is very merciful and gives not only people but nations the opportunity to turn to him as we know that the king of Nineveh had the good sense to repent when God sent Jonah with the warning.

Mystery Babylon the Great is considered the wealthiest and greatest and strongest nation on earth, but she is absolutely hated by her enemies but her sin and self-confidence has blinded her to that fact. This is why she has said in her heart that she would see no sorrow, her leaders have become so complacent that they really believe that.

Kinda like those who really believed the Titanic was unsinkable, and ever dared say, that God himself could not sink it, well, we know how tragically that ended, and I can’t help but to think of some of the signs and remarks thrown toward the church concerning abortion and gay rights, I saw a pro-abortion sign the other day, slamming rosaries, I will not even repeat what its aid, for fear, not fear of the pro-abortionists, but fear of offending the Lord, by even repeating it. But these people should be grateful that the church is praying for them, praying that they will see the truth and be saved.

As we read with the destruction of Babylon, there is a day coming that they won’t need their signs and they won’t have to be offended by the audacity that someone would actually try to get them saved from eternal damnation, when Jesus takes his voice, his church and they will hear us no more,

But that is not going to be a wonderful event as they suppose, it’s not going to work out quite like they think, sure, they won’t have to hear us, no one will tell that that anything is wrong, and they will have their rights to do as they wish, well almost as they wish, soon the antichrist will come into power and it will be his way or death.

Once he comes into power, the only way to buy food or survive is to take his mark, meaning giving him your absolute soul and if they refuse, they will be beheaded, but saved eternally.

If they take the mark of the beast they will live for a while on this earth, but God supernaturally removes their ability to die, yes, dig that, they will try to commit suicide but are unable to die, when he sends all of those judgments, not even death can stop it, Lord’s willing, we’ll hit that in a future post.

Nevertheless, bearing all this, we can see where we are and unfortunately where we are headed. The prophet Jeremiah, who actually prophesied the future Babylon’s demise had quite the job, they hated him, they slapped him around, they threw him in a dungeon, he even at one point wished he had never been born because in his world, he had to tell his own people that they were coming under judgment.

God even told Jeremiah that they would not listen, they were too stubborn, too self-righteous, but God will not send judgment without first sending the warning.

And he was obedient, the worst part of having to tell your own people that they are coming under judgment, people you love, they are after all, your people, but the risk ran, just as in Jeremiah’s day, is the rejoicing of the enemies, just as these ten kings from the Book of Revelation seek to destroy the Great.

It’s not about a desire to see any nation destroyed, it is about God, his holiness, his word, and his commands, and messengers can refuse to relay the message, just as Jonah tried to do, he tried to run, but we can’t outrun God, and if messengers don’t give the message, they are not only accountable to God for the lives of those, they have also benefitted the enemy by in effect, handing people over to him by not warning them to the snares that await,

They may laugh for a while but God may use one to judge another, as these ten kings plot the destruction of Mystery Babylon, but that does not mean they will go unpunished.

We’ll get into that one a later one also, these subjects are so complex that they truly require an entire post or two dedicated to each one, it would take volumes to even touch all that needs mentioned, so please read the Bible for yourself, read these chapters, do not be caught off guard by any of these things.

God gave us his word so that we would be prepared, that we would know what we are seeing when we see it come to pass.

Now to our original questions at hand, Who?

Well, he gave us his identitymighty to save, “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse: and he taht sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew but he himself. 

And he was clothed with a vesture (robe)  dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19: 11-13

Now back to Isaiah for the answer to Why? Why is his clothing all red and splattered? Why is his robe literally dipped in blood?

Isaiah 63:3,4: “I have trodden (trampled) the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain my garments.

For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”

This is one of the many reasons Jesus said this as recorded in Luke 21:36: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man,”

Where is all this blood going to be coming from?

Revelation 14:14-16: “I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud sat one like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time has come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.”

Remember the next events take place after the destruction of Mystery, Babylon the Great and after the rapture of the church.

Revelation 14:17-20: “And another angel come out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of teh vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

And the winepress was trodden without (trampled outside) the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horses bridles, by the space (depth) of a thousand and six hundred furlongs (two hundred miles).”

That is horrific. Can you imagine two hundred miles of blood? Not to mention the absolute carnage? This again, is why the church is reaped first, raptured out sotaht we will not witness these things.

Jeremiah 25:33: “And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried, they shall be as dung upon the ground.”

Now to see what becomes of all those bodies, I’ll start by doubling down the first verse,

Revelation 19:13-18: “And he was clothed with a vesture (robe) dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it he should smite (strike) the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 

And he hath on his vesture (robe) and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

And I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying, to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come, and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God: 

That ye may eat the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”

And one more time, who is the Word of God?

John 1:1-14: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. That same was in the beginning with God. 

All things were made by him: and without him was not any thing made that was made. 

In him was life: and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended (apprehended) it not. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of that Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 

But as many as received him, to them gave he power (the right) to become the sons (children) of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of man, but of God.

And the Word was made flesh (became flesh), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.”

Pretty much says it all, Jesus Christ is the Word of God and it is he that will judge this earth. notice it is all the earth, bodies from one end of earth to the other end of earth.

That is what always bothers me so about about false doctrine, people swallow it hook, line and sinker,  because it appeals to their flesh, that do not want to be saved, they want to be a good morale person but they do not want to have God telling them what to do, but it does not work that way, you can be a great person but without the covering of the blood of Jesus and accepting his salvation, you are not a Christian, we can never be good enough to save ourselves that is why the Bible says our righteousness is as filthy rags, and wanting to lay claim to his name  but not commit to his commandments is not salvation.

It would be better not to claim to be anything, such as the surge in “Christian artists” who happen to be gay and write dreadful lyrics doubting his very existence, that just spreads disbelief, and God is not taking it lightly.

I always want to ask, What on earth they are reading, where are they getting this false image of Jesus? He is beautifulHe is merciful, He is graceful and he wants everyone saved, but it is a double edged sword and he is not going to let the world continue in it’s present state while people debate whether or not he exists, and believe me, when you truly get saved, you know how real he is and the argument that if he were real, why would he let things happen is ridiculous, he was crucified, his apostles were murdered, his people are martyred,  as he told us, a servant is not above his master, this world is not our hope, our hope is in the next world.

And of course in mentioning any of this, we are “hateful” and intolerant, No, I will stand before a holy God, just as everyone else will and I will give account, and I am not going to stand there and say, “Yes, Lord I understood that but I knew that would hate me for saying it.”

No, I thank God for the people who kept telling me that I needed saved, and I never want to see anyone left on this earth when this comes down, but it will come, and it will come because of all the evil and wickedness and the next time you see someone on the news being dragged down the street by her hair, to be beaten or beheaded and the next reports you hear of all the other atrocities on this earth, ask yourself who is going to ever be able to put a stop to all of it. It will only change when Jesus brings judgment and my, what a judgment it will be.

Lord willing, we will continue to look at the different aspect of the judgments and what will take place, but read this DON”T be left on this earth to be part of it. If you have never accepted Jesus as your Saviour, take his advice from the scripture above, be counted worthy to escape the things to come.

“Trumpets preparing to sound” Part 2 / The Great, Oh what a fate!

“And there came one of the angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither (here); I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore (harlot) that sitteth upon many waters:

With whom the kings of the earth have committed formication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of name of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

And the woman was arrayed (clothed) in purple and scarlet colour, and decked (adorned) with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornications.

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus; when I saw her, I wondered (marveled) with great admiration (amazement).

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore (why) didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (destruction); and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder (marvel),whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom, The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth.

And there are seven kings: five are (have) fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue for a short space (time). And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition (destruction).

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but has power (authority) as kings one hour with the beast.

These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast,

These shall make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome (defeat) them: for he is the Lord of lords, and the King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore (harlot) sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate, and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

For God hath put it in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree (consent as one mind) and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God  shall be fulfilled.” Revelation 17;1-18

Before I go farther with this, I just want to bring back some scriptures from the last post,  so you can get a comparison for this.  In scripture people and countries are referred often to as the children of that particular entity, such as, we are the children of God, and Jesus told the Jews, who were professing to be the “sons” of Abraham, but yet denied that he was the Christ, that the devil was in fact their father because they choose to reflect his behavior, not the behavior of the true children of God.

We also see it in the Bible when people and nations are referred to the children of what they worship, such as children of Moab, children of Jezebel, and many many other examples, and as we are referred to as children of the light or children of darkness and it is really really important to remember that when studying the Bible.

These verses are referring to spiritual Babylon, these were double judgments, judgment against Babylon of old and against the offspring, the spiritual descendant of Babylon, which is why the name is “Mystery, Babylon the Great”.

So whose child is “MYSTERY Babylon the Great”?  Jeremiah 51:33 “For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time (when it is time) , to thresh her; yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.”

She is the spiritual offspring, whose destruction was foretold before she as a country even existed.

Now let’s check out her attributes. “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened (illuminated) with his glory.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is (HAS) become the habitation (dwelling) of devils (demons), and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. And the merchants of the earth are waxed (have become) rich through the abundance of her delicacies (luxury).

And I heard another voice from heave, saying,  Come out of her, my people, be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double (repay) unto her double according to her works; in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

How much she hath Gloried herself, and lived deliciously (luxuriously), so much torment and sorrow give her; for she saith in her heart, I sit as a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine, and she shall be utterly burned with fire: For strong is the Lord who judgeth her.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication with her and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail (weep for) her, and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning.

Standing afar off for fear of her torment, saying,  Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine (every kind of citron) wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble.

And cinnamon, and odours (incense),and ointments (fragrant oils), frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts (cattle), and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men (bodies of people).

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty (are rich) and goodly (splendid) are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing.

And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked (adorned) with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought (destroyed to nothingness)And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships (all who travel by ship), and sailors, and as made that trade by sea, stood afar off.

And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping, and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein was made rich all taht had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness (wealth)!  for in one hour she is made desolate (a wasteland),

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets, for God hath avenged you on her.

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast (threw) it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more.

And the voice (sound) of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers (flutists), and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee: and no craftsman of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of the sound of the millstone shall be heard no more at all in  thee.

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee; for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” Revelation 18:1-24

Wow. what can we say? Especially with such a detailed list of imports listed! You know right down to human trafficking, it is a country whose inhabitants just can’t get enough, they buy and buy and are never satisfied, so much so that all those who are supply that constant flow of imports will stand and CRY because they will have lost their best client!

Notice also they are not crying over all the death and destruction, they are crying because they lose their money and no country will ever again buy in the quantities that the Great bought in,

Babylon the Great  through its sin and unbelief and ungodliness will have brought down such wrath on it that it will be accounted for all the blood shed on earth, notice, the blood of the apostles, prophets, and all that were killed on earth? That is severe.

Notice also, the Great is bragging that she is a queen and is not widowed. God often refers to himself as a spiritual hatband in relation to countries, well, I should say Israel, but obviously, Mystery Babylon the Great is a country that belonged to God, that is why she is a queen and not a widow, her “husband” is still alive she just chose to reject him and usurp the wealth and protection he had given her as her own.  Which is why the country is referred to as a harlot,

Even bragging in her heart that she will see no sorrow by doing this!

Jeremiah 50:31: “Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts; for the day is come, the time that I will visit thee.”

Oh wow. does any of this sound familiar? If the Great had just been some pagan nation, it would be so different but when a nation, whether anyone like this or not, or wants to hear it or not, was founded as a Christian nation and not candy coated reprobate religion, that they want to claim as Christian, but founded on real God centered Christianity, that nation is bound to God. And once it decides it no longer believes, or needs him and perverts his word and rejects his laws and statues, then that nation will come under divine judgement.

Jeremiah:50:24: ” I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because  thou hast striven (fought) against the Lord.”

And as we read in the Book of Jeremiah, this was a double prophecy and when God calls out his people in the rapture, as in the verse above, “Come out of her, my people, be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”  Mirroring, echoing, Jeremiah 51:45    “My people, go ye out of the midst of her and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.”

Jeremiah 51:6,7: “Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul; be not cut off (destroyed) in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken; the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad (deranged).”

As in the verses above from Revelation, this was to be a light, this was a nation that the voice of Christ and his church was to be heard in, so that other nations would follow because God had blessed the Great with strength and wealth and power but instead of glorifying the one from whom that power came, the Great rebelled against God denying him, his word, his commands and spread immortality and violence through the earth and that cup which should have been shared in goodness and goodwill instead spread spiritual poison to all who shared it.

Unrepentant hearts only grow blacker and absolute slaughter is now perfectly legal the world over, and some places even wanting the right to abort babies full term, this is murder. This is not even human any more, how can you just kill a baby? How can you not expect the one who creates that child in the womb and gives the soul to that child not to take offense? This is one of the many many sips taken from that cup.

Do we need to ask for clarity as to why it has fallen and is full of demons and every imaginable hatred? Becoming so vile and spiritually polluted that God removes the church and his word, which they would like it if that were the end of the story, but it isn’t, once he removes his church, it will be destroyed, setting the stage for the stage for the world wide plagues and destructions.

“And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God; For true and righteous are his judgments; for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.” Revelation 19:1-3

These scriptures should be a wake up call, you can read this for yourselves and come to your own conclusion concerning the mystery of this mysterious identity of the Great, but I don’t think it’s that much of a mystery.

As I said in the last post this judgment was prophesied long ago, let me remind you.

“So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should (will)  come upon Babylon, even all the words written against Babylon. And Jeremiah said to Seriah, When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and read all these words;

Then shalt thou say, O Lord, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be a desolation for ever.

And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates: 

And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.” Jeremiah: 51-60-64

That stone the judgment was bound to looks like this in Revelation mirror verse from our text above.

“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast (threw) it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more.”

Next time, Lord willing, we look more how his takes place and what will become of those left on earth after the destruction of Mystery Babylon when the judgments come, but I will leave you with this, the words of Jesus, “Then shall they began TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, FALL ON US; AND TO THE HILLS,COVER US.”

EAGLE

There once was a beautiful, beautiful eagle. He was a very, very old eagle and came from a long line that had watched the birth of a nation and the determination of people to break free from tyranny.

Eagle knew the story of how a people left homes, riches, and all they have ever known to take a journey completely by faith.

Faith that would lead them to a plentiful land free from the persecution they suffered and  for freedom, freedom to worship the one true, creator God .

Many died on this journey and many more after their arrival, but God had given them land that a plague had left empty. And as time went he blessed them in all they did and they kept his commandments and worshipped him openly. Over time the apron strings of the mother country would prove that a battle would indeed need fought before true, true freedom would be won.

Eagle watched our forefathers as they tried at first to keep peace with their overlords and he watched as one by one stood up and proclaimed this land would be for liberty and it should be for all.

His favorite of these men would be Patrick Henry, a voice among the great voices who shaped our land. He heard him say words such as  “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God. I know not what course others may take but as for me give me liberty or give me death.”

He watched as tea poured into the harbor  and cries of  “The British are coming!” bellowed through the land. He watched as bloody soldiers fought to the death and gunpowder flooded the air and the sound of cannons echoed. And he watched as they pressed on, pressed on in their battle, because they would be free or they would die but they would never surrender.

He watched as this great battle came to a close and America proclaimed her freedom, freedom from her overlords and she would now shine as beacon to the whole world.

Eagle was honored as he was chosen to be her great symbol, brave, strong, powerful, and above all free.

He would be given olive branches, that he would always extend peace and he would reserve his great force as a last resort.

He would be given arrows, that he would use that force if necessary to defend his liberty and his people.

He would be given his shield to protect him and all he stood for and his main stand was “Death to tyranny”.

Eagle watched as the constitution was written and signed and he thought upon the words of his friend Patrick Henry, ” The constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

And Eagle soared, high in the sky, the sun warming him and flying higher and higher playfully trying to catch the ever elusive rainbow that the Creator had placed in the sky, a symbol of his glory and promise and Eagle knew that near the rainbow he would always be safe.

And he watched on, as struggles, trails, and heartaches came to the great land brought through evil men who had crept in there.

His feathers tattered a few times as freedom for those enslaved had to be won, pitting brother against brother and splitting the country in half.

He was ruffled as leader after leader rose and new troubles were unveiled, but storms would always pass and he would again gain his ground, liberty, bravery, and justice were on his wings.

Then suddenly it started growing dark, darker and darker as the new generations forgot their heritage and lost the wisdom held by the fathers, Eagle was reminded again of these words, “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains” that were long ago spoken by Patrick Henry.

He listened as laws were changed, comprises made, and the peace that had been so hard-fought for was pandered away by making truces with those who hate us.

He listened as prayer to the creator was taken away, he heard as they mocked and profaned the Son of God’s holy name.

He looked on with horror as the holy laws, the ten commandments of God were ridiculed and taken away.

He looked on as a people who once had been free now were told what they may and may not do.

He looked down and saw streets lined with half naked  people, and parades, and mocking’s of the crucifixion of Jesus, the Son of God, reminding him again the warning of his friend, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason people of other faiths have been offered asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

Horror for his people took hold as the sky darkened and grew black and a strong wind violently blew and whipped around him, in the darkness his path was unclear and the battering winds against his wings knocked him off-balance, as he tried to regain flight something caught his eye, it was a rainbow!

 If he could just get to the protection of the rainbow he would be safe and regain his strength. 

But as he flew closer to hide under the protection of safety of the Creator, he realized this was  not the real rainbow, but a piece of fabric blowing in the great wind, and as it caught him, he became tangled, his olive branches and shield crashed to the ground, his arrows broke in the struggle to regain flight and Eagle fought with all he had but to no avail, He crashed helplessly to the ground.

As his heart beat faded, and drawing his last breath, as his eyes grew dim, he caught sight of shimmering in the field, it was the soft, amber glow of a fire burning and as Eagle’s life continued to slowly fade, he felt comfort, because he was sure that in that fire, he heard in the distance, that old funeral song, that old faithful hymn, that he remembered from the battlefields and the old camp meetings…

” Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, 

  He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,

  He hath loosed the lightning of his terrible swift sword,

  His truth is marching on… 

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,  

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  His truth is marching on…”

* Authors note: This post is from 07/04/2015, but amidst all that is going on in our country and in the face of the “cancel culture” movement and cries to destroy history from our records, one thing remains true, as has been said many times by many others, we learn by our mistakes and we are warned by memories of the past reminding us of the error of our ways that society viewed as perfectly acceptable during those times as acceptable.

But without Jesus Christ, and the blessing of Almighty God on us and on our land we are and will be absolutely nothing and we  welcome that blessing by and through our obedience to the Word of God and regardless of what society DICTATES or demands that we believe, we must stay true to what GOD through his Word has commanded us, and that is to worship him and love him and to be the representative bearing his Holy name as his child and follow the teaching of Philippians 2:15: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”

Revisited 07/03/2021 And may God Bless all those who have fought to keep our country FREE and especially those who served in Vietnam, with the average age being nineteen years old, they served, giving everything they had, their bodies, minds, and pieces of their very souls as they watched their friends die and then upon returning home, which should have been to a hero’s welcome they were met  with sheer hatred and thankless protests by those who had never fought for anything in their lives.

God Bless those who still fight today for those who can’t fight for themselves, God Bless you with a wonderful Independence Day.

“STARSTRUCK”

“These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouths speak great swelling words, having men’s person’s in admiration because of advantage (flattering people to gain advantage).

But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of (by) the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: How that they told you that there should (would) be mockers in the last time (days), who should (would) walk after their own ungodly lusts. 

These be they who separate themselves (cause DIVISION), sensual (worldly) not having the Spirit.” Jude 16-18

I recently read the most bizarre article. The reason I say that it was bizarre is that it concerned the censorship ruckus between Elton John and Vladimir Putin and I am sure all of you have heard about it also.

John was upset and outraged because sex and drug scenes in his movie had been censored in Russia and Putin answered with the most logical words ANYONE has bothered to udder concerning the systematic and completely unnatural brainwashing of young people.

Now, I do realize that Russia also is pretty big on the persecution of many and if I stood there preaching or even writing this blog, I’d probably be on the receiving end of to.

And I am in NO WAY suggesting that anyone for any reason should be persecuted and I truly believe that we all are entitled to FREEDOM in the lifestyle we chose.

(I have a problem when others teach that it is okay with God, because that is absolutely not true.)

But when those lifestyles are as scripture states above, are USED as a catapult for agendas of a much darker nature, then someone SHOULD have the guts to stand up and offer another thought on these subjects, which is what Putin did when he stated “Let a person grow up first before making a choice” “Let the children live in peace.”

No one needs me to tell them just how prevalent all the debates, arguing, and smoke rising  in our society, you can’t even turn on the television without getting an earful of the debate, which is exactly what happened when I flipped on the tv and lo, and behold, Dr. Phil was coming on (and no, I do not watch his show, it was coming on the channel that had last been on) anyway, he was highlighting the upcoming show about a mother and daughter who were at odds with a family member whom they felt had been pressuring their six year old child into making a gender decision too soon and of course the follow up story was to be along the same lines.

Seriously?! The Bible teaches us “When I was a child, I thought as a child” and even for those who are not Christians, what about the old expressions, “Acting like a child” and “Kids will be kids” these are old sayings for a reason!

No other generation has been this far out, this self centered and no one wants kids to be kids because they are so caught up in seeking attention for themselves that the roles of parent/child become more blurred with each passing day.

And with the abortionists heralding it as the right of women everywhere, killing babies is nothing, it is no shock so many are clueless at the true meaning of what it to be a parent. You know the fact that your job is to lead, reach, and protect them.

And mention of which, they can call themselves feminists all they wish, but they are anti-feminist and people follow chanting all the way, led by celebrities and “stars” as they called.

Ever think about that? STAR power, Hollywood STAR, film STAR, stage STAR, Rock STAR, sports STAR, on and on we could go!

And of course, as they were rereferred to in the past “Holly wood IDOL”, “Teen IDOL”, and let’s not forget, even the name of a show, because people desire to attain the status of IDOL.

What is an idol? Something worshipped as a god.

Who is an idol? A person revered to the point of being worshipped.

And people have become completely STARSTRUCK, just as the verse above, if a celebrity or famous person says this, or promotes that SUDDENLY society changes to accommodate those new thoughts, just as Darwin and his theory of absolute stupidy that insults basic intelligence now is taught as truth and yet show me or anyone a species mid change!

Doesn’t exist but people would have a (false) sense of being part of the crowd, so they’d rather side with the lie than to stand alone for the truth.

You can go back through history, books, television, and you will find absolutely that society and what we consider acceptable and “normal” is determined by what media feeds us and children are being “trained up” by hollywood and the god-haters, just as the Bible tells us to “Train up a child in the way he should go.”

We are ALL trained in our thinking by someone, and the environment we are exposed to determines how we will interact, which has been proven time and time again, for better or for worse, can be determined by who and what we are exposed to. Society worshipped these people all the hate, all their pettiness, all the ranting, raving and  whatever they say goes.

And it is believing absolute lies, celebrities are NOT real, they are ACTORS. People often use the expression, “I just love her/him on that show” and characters become dear to us, but again those are CHARCTERS, IMAGIATIONS from the heads of writers.

Anyone think a tv doctor is really going to save you life? Think a hot shot cop on a drama can rescue you? Think that awesome lady lawyer could get out of a bind?

While they are screaming for abortions, HOW do you think they feel about your children?

Should you have chose to abort that “product of conception”? They do not even call them children, so how would they feel about yours? All they care about is THEM, and all the rest of the world hears about is their sex lives and abortion.

They have parades, celebrating the fact that they slaughtered their unborn babies, now touting their “1973” necklaces, beaming with PRIDE that they can take a life. PLEASE tell me again why do people want to follow them?

Oh, yeah, STARSTRUCK, if they say it and if they wear it, or do it, or tell you to, it must be right!

People are so struck in fact that I think many are succumbing to STAR of super evangelist, so many are forsaking the Word of God and teaching things that are so off point and so far out that there is no possible way they are who or what they say they are.

Teaching now to go with the absolute false ones we talk about often, like the good ol’candy coat and now it is being taught that hell does NOT exist and that God is NOT going to send judgment on earth, and we NO longer need intercessory prayer!

These thoughts DO NOT line up with the Word of God! Man’s doctrine and man’s doctrine exists for the same purpose, people are STARSTRUCK and want praise and acceptance from others.

Now, what I would like to know is why will no one say it in our country? Could no one else voice an opposing opinion?

OF COURSE NOT! I will tell why they won’t say it and it has nothing to do with the spoon fed “tolerance”, having your OWN opinion and your OWN thoughts has nothing to do with tolerance, it classifies you as human, created INDIVIAULLY to think for yourself, feel for yourself, and rationalize your own conclusions.

As we celebrate our freedom, forget hollywood, forget the STARS and stand for what YOU really believe and celebrate the real heroes the firemen, nurses, and those who give of themselves every single day to help others. And most of all the soldiers, remembering all those who have fought and those who have died and those, the MIA’s who may never be found.

The men and women who leave family, friends, and homes to protect us and NEVER try to shove their opinions down anyone’s else’ throat. God has to be number one and if you don’t want God, at least recognize the snow job for what it is and if you have to have a hero, at least have a real one.

Oh yeah, one final thought about those STARS…

Revelation 12:3,4-(c):” And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.  And his tail drew the third part of the STARS of heaven, and did cast them to earth…”

We know that these are the former angels who are now demons, no wonder they were called STARS… many of them STILL are.

EAGLE

There once was a beautiful, beautiful eagle. He was a very, very old eagle and came from a long line that had watched the birth of a nation and the determination of people to break free from tyranny.

Eagle knew the story of how a people left homes, riches, and all they have ever known to take a journey completely by faith.

Faith that would lead them to a plentiful land free from the persecution they suffered and  for freedom, freedom to worship the one true, creator God .

Many died on this journey and many more after their arrival, but God had given them land that a plague had left empty. And as time went he blessed them in all they did and they kept his commandments and worshipped him openly. Over time the apron strings of the mother country would prove that a battle would indeed need fought before true, true freedom would be won.

Eagle watched our forefathers as they tried at first to keep peace with their overlords and he watched as one by one stood up and proclaimed this land would be for liberty and it should be for all.

His favorite of these men would be Patrick Henry, a voice among the great voices who shaped our land. He heard him say words such as  “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God. I know not what course others may take but as for me give me liberty or give me death.”

He watched as tea poured into the harbor  and cries of  “The British are coming!” bellowed through the land. He watched as bloody soldiers fought to the death and gunpowder flooded the air and the sound of cannons echoed. And he watched as they pressed on, pressed on in their battle, because they would be free or they would die but they would never surrender.

He watched as this great battle came to a close and America proclaimed her freedom, freedom from her overlords and she would now shine as beacon to the whole world.

Eagle was honored as he was chosen to be her great symbol, brave, strong, powerful, and above all free.

He would be given olives branches, that he would always extend peace and he would reserve his great force as a last resort.

He would be given arrows, that he would use that force if necessary to defend his liberty and his people.

He would be given his shield to protect him and all he stood for and his main stand was “Death to tyranny”.

Eagle watched as the constitution was written and signed and he thought upon the words of his friend Patrick Henry, ” The constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

And Eagle soared, high in the sky, the sun warming him and flying higher and higher playfully trying to catch the ever elusive rainbow that the Creator had placed in the sky, a symbol of his glory and promise and Eagle knew that near the rainbow he would always be safe.

And he watched on, as struggles, trails, and heartaches came to the great land brought through evil men who had crept in there.

His feathers tattered a few times as freedom for those enslaved had to be won, pitting brother against brother and splitting the country in half.

He was ruffled as leader after leader rose and new troubles were unveiled, but storms would always pass and he would again gain his ground, liberty, bravery, and justice were on his wings.

Then suddenly it started growing dark, darker and darker as the new generations forgot their heritage and lost the wisdom held by the fathers, Eagle was reminded again of these words, “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains” that were long ago spoken by Patrick Henry.

For this very reason people of other faiths have been offered asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

Horror for his people took hold as the sky darkened and grew black and a strong wind violently blew and whipped around him, in the darkness his path was unclear and the battering winds against his wings knocked him off-balance, as he tried to regain flight something caught his eye, it was a rainbow!

AMERICAN GENOCIDE #2 Daughters of Eve

“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desired to make one wise, she took the fruit thereof,….” GENESIS 3:6

I think we all know that one, the seduction of Eve by the serpent, all he really had to do was convince her of a few points. It looked good, really good at the time and she really wanted to feel smart, smarter than her Creator and the serpent even managed to convince her that not only would she not die but that she would become as God.

BAD, BAD idea and unfortunately today we have the daughters of Eve, who have now fallen to some very bad advice and are also thinking they are as God, when it comes to the very gift God has given us, the gift of life, the priceless gift to reproduce and bring life into this world and we are now deceived into believing we have the right to destroy that life. 

In a few short hours, America will have a new President, and all his personal mess and misogyny aside, I am quite happy about it. Please DO NOT get me wrong, he could very well be bad mess, he could in fact be a proverbial “King Saul” waiting to happen, BUT as we stand now, the tide has changed in hope for the better, concerning the anti-God laws that have already came to rest on the head of America, so I feel like with the absence of even more pagan laws being enacted that we have been given a tad bit more time before the judgment train lands in our station.

But believe me, it will, if we do not act and act fast as believers, we are not going to undo what has already been done, but God did spare Nineveh a little while longer and maybe we will be too, but not forever.

As you know I had taken a little break because I have not been really well and hoped to come back with a groovy new site and flowers, sunshine, and encouragement, but as I had not be near my computer I had missed a few email news letters and after checking those and streaming through what I had “missed out on”, I quickly discovered that, no, we would not have flowers but we would have tears, sorrow, and repentance as a comeback.

As the Women’s march takes place in protest to Trump, I really want to be one of the first and one of the MANY who say, THEY DO NOT SPEAK ON MY BEHALF!

And I want to clarify a few things because it is so easy for people to accuse us of holding on to traditional “brainwashed” views, well, I can assure all that the only brain washing I have had took place when my soul, mind and spirit was cleansed by the Word of God and sanctification by the Holy Spirit and until that point I was just like those I now desire to reach.

I WAS a feminist, I WAS a liberal democratic, and I was on the band wagon of great rebellion of the daughters of Eve, who have to vehemently proclaim that MEN had no right to decide what we should do or how we should do it.

And you know what? That IS all it really comes down to, and once I was saved, I realized much as the character of Ebenezer Scrooge, portrayed by Alistair Simms in the 1951 version of “Scrooge” as he sang “I never did know anything!” and I realized that everything I had believed was actually backward to the truth, and all I had been taught was wrong, not right and we ARE natural beings BEFORE we become spiritual.

This is rebellion, but it is rebellion, not against men but against God. It is great to have our rights and be free and I really think men are also to blame, just as Adam was guilty with Eve. Men have used the Bible wrongly and misrepresented God’s views on women through the ages to the point that many women think He hates them and this is the biggest lie that Satan has ever told.

The deception he has hit us with is so much greater than what he did to her, because he has women DESTROYING themselves from the inside out and claiming feminism when killing the very, most precious part of us that makes us women in the first place.

And there is something so horrifying on a primal level when it is now COMMON in America to have celebrities laugh about abortions, wear insanely vulgar pins that state “Don’t—- with us, Don’t—- without us” as a champion for abortion, dresses with big “I (heart) Abortions” on them, panderers laughing about selling baby body parts because they want a sport car.

Women willfully killing their own children as a form of contraception, when there are many, many contraceptives available, even one popular magazine with a coat hanger on the cover that stated without abortion they would resort back to “that”.

We have options on top of options, there is still the tried and true, just so no method but there is no excuse anywhere for abortion over contraceptives. And flip that coin for the horrific reality that homosexual men are ADOPTING babies, while mothers CHOOSE to slaughter them.

You want the cold hard facts? The highest year for abortions in America was actually 1981 with one MILLION, three-hundred thousand, seven hundred and sixty being performed according to the CDC.

In the grand scheme of it all, we have taken lessons from the Spartans in ancient Greece (infanticide was also committed in ancient Rome) who murdered their own babies if they were thought to be weak, the Babylonians buried infants under the foundations of their homes for “good luck”, oh but we modern Americans are so totally civilized!

The main reasons reported for abortions are, not being “ready” for a baby, having other plans for life, afraid to tell partner (Yeah, sounds like they really need to keep sleeping with him) what about the baby, whose little heart is beating as it forms gently, securely inside the safety of Mama’s womb only to suddenly have its head crushed in, cut apart and vacuumed out? Think the baby doesn’t feel it?

I really want to be careful, I do truly have a sorrow in my heart for all women, especially young ones who have been coerced and sometimes forced to have an abortion and I pray God will help them but the ones I am referring to are NOT victims they are AGENTS.

To get to some more facts about killing ourselves from the inside out, more numbers 2011, seven hundred, thirty thousand, three-hundred, and twenty-two abortions according to the CDC, but much higher according to other sources, now 2012, a strange thing happened, DEATHS OUTNUMBERED BIRTHS, and births have been on the decline for years. 

Wonder why? Could it may be because we are killing all the babies? If you get time please research this, you will be shocked at many of the facts and the CDC site gives you info on ALL years recorded. We don’t have to worry about global threats or diseases, we are wiping out our own people and destroying our own society from the inside out and just as that spirit of Pharaoh that called for the execution of the Hebrew babies and Herod calling for the great slaughter, we have allowed the enemy to convince us to do the job for him.

Now the purpose of this post, NEW DANGER, abortions rates are actually declining but they will not stay that way if the entertainment industry has anything to do with it, web search “ABC scandal baby it’s cold” that simple, most probably heard about it but I had missed hearing about it, but anyway, it is a television show and they decided it was a great idea to have the main character have an abortion, and the heartlessness to title it “Baby it’s cold” is only mirrored in despicable, sick, perversion by the fact that they used “Silent Night” as the theme song during the abortion.

If you have any discernment going on, you can seriously feel “what” you’re dealing with just watching the clip, it reminds me of the  Bible story of Tophet when the people burned their children alive as sacrifices and played the music to drown out the sounds of their screams.

So truly sick, when I think I have seen it all…. But that is the thing, Hollywood dictates modern culture and now these shows are doing what they have always done and desensitizing minds, while even encouraging countless young viewers that is no big deal, it is even okay to laugh, look at the title, the world is a hard place, no place to bring a baby into, so go for it, everyone else is. And as with all infections it will spread. 

Time to stand up like never before, speak out when ever you can especially to young people, it takes two and it is high time that men start taking responsibility also, God never created women to be inferior or abused, men are going to have to “man” up, grow up, and be what God called them to be and treat women with respect and women to bury the hatchet, everyone needs a good old-fashioned class in abstinence, you know society changed, GOD DIDN’T, HIS idea is still one man one woman, MARRIED.

But please, if you do watch all these “protests” and rights marches, please pray while you watch, pray the curse of rebellion will be broken, it has nothing to do with birth control, it comes down to “It is my baby and I DECIDE if it lives” because they want to think they are wiser than God, Pray their eyes will be opened, the cloak covering the truth will be removed and they will SEE the truth and the entirety of that truth.

Pray that their ears WILL NOT be protected by the “music of Tophet” that they will hear the cries of the innocent, the unborn, pray their hearts will feel compassion as Pharaoh’s daughters heart filled with compassion when she heard the cry of Moses, Pray the will repent.

Our country is still very divided and we must not forget the fight we have just endured. we all often ask, “Where were the Christians when prayer was taken from schools?” and then we must all answer the same answer, sleeping on the job, feeling a little to at ease. Soldiers should never feel that at ease! God has given us a victory but the battle still wages and to keep our freedom, we must continue to stand for those who can not stand for themselves and one baby aborted is one too many and the only way it will stop is when people see the truth.. it is wrong and it will always be wrong. Until the daughters of Eve become the Daughters of the King, we can not forget.

I don’t know about you but I honestly can not handle the thought of a billion little babies destroyed simply because they are inconvenient, but I’ll leave it at ROMANS 1, after without natural affection, you know the NATURAL love mother to child, human to human, ROMANS 1:32 ……..not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.” that is what we are dealing with.. if change does not come, don’t be shocked in the future, if THE FUTURE does not come.

Horror for his people took hold as the sky darkened and grew black and a strong wind violently blew and whipped around him, in the darkness his path was unclear and the battering winds against his wings knocked him off-balance, as he tried to regain flight something caught his eye, it was a rainbow!

 If he could just get to the protection of the rainbow he would be safe and regain his strength. 

But as he flew closer to hide under the protection of safety of the Creator, he realized this was  not the real rainbow, but a piece of fabric blowing in the great wind, and as it caught him, he became tangled, his olive branches and shield crashed to the ground, his arrows broke in the struggle to regain flight and Eagle fought with all he had but to no avail, He crashed helplessly to the ground.

As his heart beat faded, and drawing his last breath, as his eyes grew dim, he caught sight of shimmering in the field, it was the soft, amber glow of a fire burning and as Eagle’s life continued to slowly fade, he felt comfort, because he was sure that in that fire, he heard in the distance, that old funeral song, that old faithful hymn, that he remembered from the battlefields and the old camp meetings……. 

” Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, 

  He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,

  He hath loosed the lightning of his terrible swift sword,

  His truth is marching on… 

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,  

  Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,

  His truth is marching on………..”

* Authors note: This post is from 07/04/2015, but amidst all that is going on in our country and in the face of the “cancel culture” movement and cries to destroy history from our records, one thing remains true, as has been said many times by many others, we learn by our mistakes and we are warned by memories of the past reminding us of the error of our ways that “society”viewed during those times as acceptable.

But without Jesus Christ, and the blessing of Almighty God on us and on our land we are and will be absolutely nothing and we  welcome that blessing by and through our obedience to the Word of God and regardless of what society DICTATES or demands that we believe, we must stay true to what GOD through his Word has commanded us, and that is to worship him and love him and to be the representative bearing his Holy name as his child and follow the teaching of Philippians 2:15: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”
