THE LINE HAS BEEN DRAWN

WHEN WILL WE TAKE A STAND?
IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?
THE LINE HAS BEEN DRAWN.
ON WHICH SIDE ARE YOU?
________________________________________
Hello my fellow saints and believers:

If all genuine followers of Christ would unite and abstain from wickedness by refusing to watch and support the Oscars and any television /cable / satellite shows that feature and celebrate homosexuality, whether openly, suggestively, by implication or via creator/production personality, we could impress upon the powers that be and their commercial sponsors that we are as great if not a greater force for change and Christian moral values as the gay and lesbian lobbyists are for homosexuality and the ultimate dismantling and destruction of the God institution of family.

I strongly suggest that every Christian of Conscious boycott shows, movies and plays that obscure, pervert, change, dismiss or in any way contradicts God’s Law against homosexuality.  We should not support, through our television viewing, ticket purchases or attendance, the celebration of sexual immorality and embolden brazenness in the face of God and His Word. 

Any show that has a man portraying a woman or conveys an acceptance of homosexuality whether directly or indirectly though suggestive dialogue, comedy, visual media or script, should be considered anti-christian and a part of Satan’s world domination and deception.

We cannot worship God while supporting His sworn enemies. 

We cannot be Holy as He is Holy while vicariously supporting and enjoying an open rebellion against what God allows.

We cannot claim to be for God and His righteousness while advocating for gays and lesbians with our time, money and resources.

We cannot be God’s friend and friends with those who oppose God.

It just will not work!

We will have to make a choice. We will not go bullied into accepting sin no matter what the government, society or other gutless wonders may say.

We didn’t start this war.   And don’t be deceived, it is a war. 

So let Christians around the world unite and send a message that cannot be ignored.  Let’s hit them where they hurt the most – in their finances and in their broadcast ratings.

I STRONGLY suggest that this movement begins with the boycotting of the Oscars on Sunday, March 2, 2014.  So hurry and spread the news and join the real followers of God and of Christ.

Victory is My Name!

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He Who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” – 1 John 4:4

The devil hopes we never learn that “greater is He (The Holy Spirit of Yahweh) that is in us than he (The devil) that is in the world.”  Satan has already been defeated at the cross of Calvary by the shed blood of Christ Jesus.  The devil hopes we’ll never learn that his power has been stripped from him and that we have been given “authority over all of the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19). And Satan hopes that we will never learn that when we pray, we do not pray for the victory, you pray from the victory.

My Name is Victory!

THIS WEEK’S PROBING QUESTION

Phony

One evening while visiting a revival, I witnessed a minister leading prayer. After she was through praying in a sing-song, melodic and rhythmic tone of voice, she then proceeded to perform in a convulsive type movement, yelling out loud, making grunting and barking sounds like an animal – performing as if she were trying to cough up something – hunching her shoulders, jutting out her neck and widely opening her mouth while making a loud choking sound.

It was quite obvious that this unintelligible and pitiful display of animated behavior was intended to be understood as evidence of being possessed by the Holy Spirit.

Does God’s Holy Spirit manifest Himself in this way?  Are there other false ways in which Satan imitates the Holy Spirit and attempts to deceive the saints?  What is your experience?  Please list them in your comments.

A Crumb From The Master’s Table

The Master's Table

And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him, saying, Master, we would that you should do for us whatever we shall desire. And he said to them, “What would you that I should do for you?” They said to him, Grant to us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the other on your left hand, in your glory… Jesus said to them, “to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared”… then Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:35-45

Serve one another humbly in love. – Galatians 5:13

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. – Philippians 2:3

From the time of the earthly ministry of Christ up unto this present age, men have sought positions of glory and authority over other men in the Kingdom of God and in the Church. The Catholic and Protestant movements have departed from the True Apostolic Faith and have perverted the gifts that God gave His Church – turning them into ecclesiastical offices of hierarchy whereby one office is subservient to another.

Men are fighting, struggling, politicking and engaging in all types of ungodly activities to gain an advantage in acquiring an ecclesiastical title and position of prestige, honor, rank and power in many of our Christian Churches. A pastorship has become more about serving the ambition and ego of the Pastor than about serving the purpose of God. The office of Pastor is now defined by society’s perception of success, grand titles and scholastic achievements rather than the anointing of God.

Everything that calls itself a Pastor may not have been sent by God but by greed, pride and selfish ambition. The offices that God sends are offices of selfless services whereby one esteems the other better than himself.

“Although we may have different offices, we are all servants one of another.”

Warning To Pastors About The Corrupt Church / A General Address

corrupt-church

I am growing increasingly concerned about the genuineness of some of our Pastors and the apparent absence of the authentic apostolic spirit of Christ in some of our churches.

There seems to be an ever-growing need in the pastoral ministry to meet the world’s expectations and secular benchmarks of success.

Many worship services disguise their organization’s real purpose of raising money by calling it a church service. They have a hidden agenda of captivating and capturing individual members to teach them about financial stewardship to the church to increase the church’s fiscal strength and visible attractiveness. Church seems to be more about business, entertainment, choir performance, physical attractiveness and political correctness than about genuine salvation. Salvation is the cover story while finance is the goal. I know that his assessment doesn’t apply to all churches but an ever-increasing number of churches seems to be purposely headed in that direction. After all, it is attractive and offers many perks that holiness doesn’t.

They have brought the elements of the night club into the church to artificially influence the congregation to “dance for the Lord.” They have disguised club music as praise break music using the fast tempo and heavy beats to manufacture an atmosphere of excitement and joy. If the joy is real, I don’t need no music to praise the Lord in dance.

Artisans of religiosity and motivational speech have taken the stage as pastors spinning webs of nonsensical yet poetic rhetoric that persuades intrigues, intoxicate and captivates but not save.

Many pastors and churches are more concerned about what men think about them than what God thinks of them. They attend seminary more out of a general need to impress prospective employers (Churches) with their credentials than out of a need to impress God wit their hunger to know Him. Why would God need them to go to seminary to learn of Him as if seminary could tell them about Him? (1 Cor. 1:21) That’s not happening.

Many so-called Christian pastors tolerate improprieties and immoralities among their fellow clergy and in their churches in exchange for financial consideration, popularity, pastoral prestige and job security. They cover one another’s sins up not out of concern for quiet rebuke and eventual correction but out of a sense of fraternal loyalty and shared risk.

No one seems to be concerned about saving souls anymore. I’ve seen a number of church services where the pastor ceremonially took in several new church members without them ever repenting, being baptized in Jesus’ Name or receiving the Holy Spirit. They just prayed a prayer and danced around or fell on the floor and rolled around a little or gave a story about their so-called conversion experience, usually involving something personal, emotional, strange and unsubstantiated. They usually ended up saying that they loved the Lord and the church votes them into the body or the pastor accepts them as members. They walk away thinking that they are saved because they joined a religious institution. This is so sad and it breaks my heart. I so much want to interrupt the service but that wouldn’t be productive or prudent.

There appears to be no standard of holiness in many of the churches that I have visited these days. I have personally witnessed practicing fornicators with live-in lovers singing on church choirs, serving as missionaries, ushers, ministers, musicians and in other various capacities in the church. Adulterers and drunkards are Pastoring and conducting communion services. Open homosexuality is very visible in the church and no one dares to address this abomination and affront to the Kingdom of God and its message of sexual purity.

As long as the finances come in, the bigger buildings are being built, the larger pastor salaries are being made, the prestige, power and honor are being bestowed, everyone seems to go along with the program as business as usual.

But one day, God is going to require that all of these pretenders and false prophets and false prophetesses give an account for their behavior. What an eternally sad day that will be.

“‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.’” (Ezekiel 13:8-9)

REPENT!

“… I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.” (Ezekiel 33:7-9)

Save yourselves pastors!

Obey God’s Commandments and feed God’s sheep.

Repent!
