I Will Not Be Silenced . . .

Standard

Someday I may be forcibly forbidden to write or speak of  Yeshua-Jesus, my Messiah, the One who redeemed me from the shameful darkness of sin by giving His life for mine. But though my words be removed as though my tongue were cut out, my thoughts will continue to be on Him; my eyes will reveal God’s Mercy; my lips will smile and convey His Love; my hands will show His kindness; my arms will hold and give His tender comfort; my feet will walk in His ways and lead others down the narrow path that leads to eternal Life! Even in death, should my life be taken, all I have done in His Name will remain to proclaim His greatness, His power, His glory, His love, His forgiveness, His promises. You Cannot silence me . . . You Will Never Silence Him!

Double Sundogs reveal God's Grace

Twilight Phenomenon ~Mormon Culture

Standard

Read Twilight Phenomena by Caryl Matrisciana
We are in the throes of the last days. The love of many has gone cold. Children are disrespectful to their parents. Spouses argue and fight and even kill each other and their children. The economy continues to fail. Jobs are hard to come by. Families are losing their homes. Natural disasters are rampant. Pestilence is on the rise, and Christians, so called, are immersing themselves in New Age and occult deceptions. Like lost children, they turn away from the Bible and grope for something sensational to latch on to and absorb.
The Twilight novels and movie have claimed more of these misled Christians than the Harry Potter disaster. There seems to be no end to the lack of spiritual discernment from people who should know better and should be sounding the alarm to a lost and dying world. Instead, they have joined the masses in following one of the most devious cults yet to claim they believe in God. The only problem is that they don’t believe in YHVH of the Bible…the ONE TRUE GOD.
Some little known facts about Mormonism: Click here to read more: Mormonism

  1. They do not believe Jesus is the Son of God, equal with God. They believe Jesus was conceived when their version of God literally became human and had sexual relations with Mary.
  2. They believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers and Satan became the evil twin, so to speak.
  3. They do NOT believe in the efficacious death of Jesus Christ on the cross as an atonement for our sins, they believe in a Works Religion.
  4. They believe there are levels to heaven that one must work his or her way through in order to reach the highest level.
  5. They believe that Mormons preach to the dead in these levels and those who accept the Mormon religion are then “saved” and able to go to the next level. They practice baptism of these dead people.
  6. They believe in communication with the dead.
  7. And their main goal in life is to proselytize as many as they can before they die and they give large sums of money to the “church” to insure a better “level” for themselves in heaven. (guess where the sales of this series is going…)
  • The woman who wrote the Twilight series is a Mormon and even admits to having been visited by the vampire she created as the hero of the story and that he spoke to her, giving advise about her writing! She wrote the first novel in 3 months, claiming it was supernatural~only it wasn’t the Spirit of God motivating her…

    I am stupefied as to the level of willful ignorance revealed by those who are reading and watching this abomination. Many will shut you out, if you try to show them the error of this, because they are drawn in by the seductiveness of the characters and the story and do not want to hear the truth. The excuses for getting involved with this are beyond comprehension.
    God is not overlooking this; judgment will follow. It is time to wake up from your stupor and come to your senses. This is not an innocent story that opens up dialogue for teens in sexual situations, people… it is NOT okay to be wrapped up in this because Christians, who should know better, are endorsing it!! This is a flat out lie of Satan’s. It is as deceitful as Satan’s question to Eve in the Garden: “yea, hath God said?”

    It is a blatant rebellious spirit that mocks any attempt to bring the Truth to the Light… The Real Light… and those who are deceived by this spirit have lost all sense of spiritual discernment…A dangerous thing in these last days when Satan knows he has but little time and is pulling out all the stops! I hope and pray that those who are involved in this Satanic lie will turn from it and repent and receive mercy. I pray with all my heart, because my own children are caught up in it and don’t want to hear anything I have to say about it… and nothing could break my heart more.

  • The Calling…

    Standard


    There is a fluttering within my soul… Something has awakened and is increasing in its activity. A change is taking place, and I feel this desire, born of God, wanting to take wing and fly. For now, it is hidden and protected within its cocoon. The birthing process is laborious and takes time…but when this transformation is complete, that, which the Lord has ordained, will spread its wings and soar to greater heights than I could have ever imagined.
    Though the outside shell of this hidden desire is nondescript and has no qualities that would make it something to be sought after, I know when it emerges, it will have a beauty that will draw all men to their Creator and elicit praise to the Lord who died and rose to life for them and calls them to be part of His Victorious Body!
    Until then, I wait with baited breath to see what the Lord has planned for the gifts He has given me.

    Merry Christmas~Emanuel!!!

    Standard



    Christmas 2008… what an eyeopener for me in so many ways. I never liked the word Christmas, because of the association with the catholic mass…but I found out from a friend that mass means celebration… So, celebrate Christ today!! Along with that, I just got an email from the Institute for Creation Research about Jesus’ birth being in late August, early September. If you count back, you come to His miraculous conception happening around the end of December!! Which means, we can celebrate the most important aspect of Christmas–His Immaculate Conception!
    Imagine…the Son of God, willing to become Emanuel, God With Us! I have a new perspective on this Blessed Celebration that liberals, atheists and naysayers would love to see dissolve into a mere pagan holiday. May we cling to the Truth and never let the true meaning of Christmas get lost in the frivolity and commercialization! Let’s keep Christmas alive for all that it portrays: God’s Amazing Love, His Son’s Willingness to live among us, die for our sins, and live again with the promise to return for those of us who believe in and follow Him, and for the awe-some power of the Holy Spirit in Christ’s conception, and in our lives as we live for the Lord!

    ~~~~MERRY CHRISTMAS!~~~

    Answer to: Those who Bless/Curse Israel will be Blessed/Cursed

    Standard

    I was led to another website where the author debunked the bless/curse Israel promise that Christians point to today. I think this is important enough to answer:
    Here’s what this person says: “In Genesis 12:3, God said to Abraham, I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you, and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

    Notice, the direct “bless-curse” line concerned Abraham alone, not Israel, and “all the families of the earth” were to be blessed in Abraham, which meant through “his seed,” which was Jesus Christ (see Galatians 3:16). In order to receive that very blessing, individuals must be willing to be “turned away” from their sins by God’s grace (see Acts 3:25,26).”

    However, if you read just a bit more in Genesis 27:29, you will find that Issac blesses Jacob with this: “Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be those who bless you.” Jacob was Abraham’s seed through Issac!!
    It might sound like a personal blessing, BUT, if you compare that with Hebrews 11:20, Paul says: By faith, Issac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.”

    Consider, also, these scriptures:
    Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you… (what shall be the end of those who don’t?? Look it up!!)

    Isaiah 49 is the Messianic chapter, but read verse 16 to 26 about Zion (Jerusalem-Israel) God says in verses 15 and 16 that a nursing mother cannot forget her son, so He will not forget Zion… she is written (engraved, as in permanently) on the palms of His hands…her walls are ever before Him.

    Jeremiah is full of promises for Israel and punishment for those who come against her: Read chapter 31… it ends with this: In the latter days you will consider it.

    And Chapter 32 has this promise: 35: Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night,
    who disturbs the sea and its waves roar (the Lord of Hosts is His name)
    36: If those ordinances depart from before Me, says the Lord, then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before me forever.
    37: Thus says the Lord: if heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says the Lord

    In Zechariah 12, God will make Israel a cup of drunkeness and Jerusalem a burdensome stone to those who come against her…I would call that a curse to those who come against Israel.

    None of this in any way diminishes the preeminence of Jesus Christ, or those believers (wild olive branches) who are grafted in the true olive tree, Israel. It is true that in Christ shall all the Word of God be fulfilled. Until His return, Jerusalem, Israel, and His believers are all important. When He does return, His feet shall touch Mt. Zion and Jerusalem will be raised up — the New Jerusalem doesn’t come down until after the 1000 year reign of our Lord on the earth!!Zechariah 14:4-21

    These are just a FEW of the verses that indicate we are blessed if we bless Israel, no matter what her state, especially since God does, even though she has rejected His Son. For He promises that one day He will pour out the Spirit of grace and supplication on the house of David and all of Israel, and they will look upon Him whom they have pierced. Zechariah 12:10

    PLEASE REMEMBER THIS: Read the scriptures by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It takes more than degrees in theology to understand what the Lord has written. Anyone who desires understanding and trusts the Lord, will be led by the Spirit to know what God is saying to His people. I John 2:26,27 Get a good concordance and reliable translation of the Bible. Compare Scripture with Scripture. It is my hope and prayer that more people will search out the Word and walk in the Truth.

    Aftermath of the Election ~ Israel

    Standard

    This morning, when I was reading from the Bible in Romans 11 and 12, two things stood out as I reflected on the outcome of the election: One is the importance of Israel in God’s End Times Economy, and the other is the attitude of Christians toward the president elect.
    Romans, chapter 11, clearly, unmistakably, deals with Israel, and how GOD views this nation of people. Israel has NEVER been cast aside…she has been blinded temporarily, and IN PART. Verse 1 says: “I say then, Hath God cast away His people? God forbid!” Paul goes on to to quote Elijah’s cry to the Lord and His reply. Then in verse 5 he says,”Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” Paul continues to show how the Jews have fallen, and have been cut off from the olive tree, so that Gentiles could come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but he warns in verse 25: “but I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.” Verses 26-29 then go on to say: “And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There Shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is My covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes, but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes. For the gifts and callings of God are without repentance.” Pretty self explanatory. You simply can’t make that say anything else. You are ignorant in your own conceits if you think differently.

    As for the election of our president this year, many Christians are being quite vocal about their disdain for this man they voted against. I stand guilty. Romans, chapter 12, is an amazing exhortation to believers on how they are to conduct themselves as representatives of Jesus Christ! Verse 2: “Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” compare that with Matthew 7:21: “Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of the Father, which is in heaven.”
    Read the entire 12th chapter of Romans; if you are not convicted as to the state of your heart, whoever you are, you have a hardened heart. Paul covers how we are to deal with the actions, thoughts, and emotions we encounter as members of the Body of Christ and ends with, “Be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” Couple that with the many exhortations to pray for those in authority and you have God’s will for His people as it pertains to Israel and to this nation’s leader! My prayer is that you will seek the Lord with all your heart and let Him show you His will, through His Word, for your lives. We are living in critical times…Look up~for your redemption draweth nigh!
