September 23 Rapture Deception

23 sept Deception

Todd tomasella: All around us we see false prophets use date-setting, manipulations, false predictions, and hysteria to deceive those who are not truly abiding soundly in Christ. This late hour is not the time to be doing anything except engaging in a grounded, cross-bearing, abiding, fruit-bearing relationship with Jesus Christ (John 15).

GOD is not going to tell you the exact day of Christ’s return. Repent and get over yourself!

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36

IF we could figure out the timeline/day of Christ’s return, WHY would Jesus ever have said this?: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36

Cross-Less Counterfeits Exposed

End is near

Those want to be convinced that Jesus is coming back on a certain day are Christ-denying, self-serving devils as described the Holy Spirit to us right here – watch v5 in particular:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power (authority, reign of Christ in their person life) thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:1-7

Here in Matthew 24:36 Jesus tells us that we cannot and will not know the exact day of His return. We are instructed repeatedly by Christ to live every single day as if He will return. It’s those who are not truly living for Christ daily – loving and worshiping Hm for who He is – that give ear to false prophets and cling to the date-setting hoaxes.

THE LORD IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU THE EXACT DATE OF HIS RETURN BECAUSE HE SAYS YOU CANNOT PLEASE HIM WITHOUT FAITH – LIVING BY FAITH (2 CORINTHIANS 5:7; HEBREWS 11:6. ETC.). THE ONLY HEAVEN-BOUND SAINTS LIVE BY FAITH AND ARE DENYING THEMSELVES TODAY, TAKING UP THEIR CROSS, AND FOLLOWING JESUS (LUKE 9:23-24). AND, IF WE KNEW THE EXACT DATE OF HIS RETURN THE COUNTERFEITS WOULD WAIT TILL THE DAY BEFORE TO RENDER SOME KIND OF REPENTANCE.

“Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; 36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.” Luke 12:35-40

If you’ve allowed yourself to be duped by yet another date-setter who claimed to have Scripture to “prove” he knew the exact day Jesus would return, it’s time to truly repent.

SEPTEMBER 23RD WILL COME AND GO AND SHOULD MAKE IT MORE THAN OBVIOUS THAT MANY HAVE BEEN DECEIVED.

IS the “man of sin” revealed? No. Watch this:

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Times and Seasons

We know “the times and seasons” but not exact day of Christ’s return. Listen please:

“And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Acts 1:7

“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:1

What is the Gospel?

what is gospel

There are 4 parts:

God WITHDRAWS His protective hedge from around you and allows Satan to take you and put you on the cross of suffering circumstances as God did with Job. Job 1; 2 Cor 4:11; Gal 2:20. You are thereby rendered helpless and hopeless with only one place to look for help: up to God!

God allows this cross to come to you for a good and REDEMPTIVE purpose: that thru “the faith of Jesus Christ” (Gal 2:16) you will embrace the cross and consent to die to self then be raised up by God to a new life as a new creation person in Christ, fully equipped with God’s resurrection life, power, thoroughly enabled now to live your life for God. Satan is always the killer. John 10:10; 8:44; God, thru faith, raises the dead. Rom 6:3-7; Rom 12:1-2. Thru this death, and only thru this death, we are freed from slavery: bondage to Satan, the mosaic law (Gal 3:10-13), the old self, the sin nature within us and the world’s influence over us. “Loose him and let him go.” John 11:44. The death brought on by Satan is the very same vehicle that frees us from the devil’s power over our life. Heb 2:14. To be born again we must first be killed. John 3:14-16.

God suffers with us as we go through this death to self at Satan’s hands working through his earthly minions and his calamitous circumstances. John 11:35. Christ is with us as we endure this death. We are crucified with Christ. Gal 2:20. Daniel 3:25.

Satan and the people he uses to crucify us are destroyed by the very same cross they put us on. Evil is thereby allowed to run its course and self-destruct. Ps 7:15-16; 9:15-16; Heb 2:14; 1 Cor 2:6-8; Col 2:14-15.

Through this gospel, we are enabled to love and bless our enemies because we have come to see them as the very blacksmith’s tools of our salvation, both initially and continually. We love our persecutors. We have only two commandments, love God and love others, especially our enemies. All other rule-keeping becomes a byproduct of these two. God is love and we become lovers like Him.

Works and rule keeping are the fruit, never the means, of the salvation process.

In summary, salvation is something that happens to you, not something you do. All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28. All the bad things Satan does to us God will take and reverse back against Satan and turn into our victory thru and only thru the Cross of Christ.

I would add that part 1 could be God striving to restrain evil in the hearts of someone. Gen 6:3. At some point God will drop His restraining influence and allow us to be taken over by our own sinful lustful proud desires. See Rom 1:24, 26 and 28. We are delivered over to the wrath and self-punishment of our own sinful desires. We fall into the depths of depression, anxiety and despair. We are here also rendered helpless and hopeless. We then proceed to part 2 of the four parts or we go on on our path to self-destruction.

Devil Smack Down!!!!!

children-2-girls-bonding-todd-tomasella

WE ARE IN YOUR FACE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

“God is love!” 1 John 4:8, 16

Without LOVE, we are nothing! Read 1 Corinthians 13 every morning this week! Beg God to change your life from the depths of your being and to fill you with His love as only He can do!

If you participate in a white supremacy group or black lives matter group, perhaps it’s YOU who is the racist – full of soul-damning hatred (Galatians 5:19-21; 1 John 4:8; Revelation 21:8). The LORD is calling you to truly repent before it’s too late.

So let me get this straight: You claim to know Jesus and yet you have no time to obey His Great Commission command and yet you have all this time, mental and physical energy, and wherewithal to participate in a hate group?! If that’s you – you are a lost soul!

FROM AUDREY BOYD: “Audrey Boyd yes indeed, we went down town Dallas today and honored cops in Dallas and we will continue praying for all police officers– everywhere ( we must all remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood ( not against men ) but against spiritual wickedness in high places, rulers of darkness of this dark world –( the enemy = devil ) –but by the power of the Holy Ghost , through Jesus Christ — we win — in him and by his spirit –AMEN — walk in the spirit — That which is flesh is flesh and does mind the things of the flesh– the same way , that which is spirit is spirit , does mind the things of the spirit of GOD — LIFE, HEALING, LOVE, JOY , PEACE in the HOLY GHOST , and so much more — the kingdom of God consist of that which is Spiritual — not flesh / carnal — AMEN —”

church-racial-body-of-christ

Lavel Tyler writes: “There is only one race in the body of Christ and that is the christian race. And we are a peculiar people. For we do not look at the skin color when we look at a person but we see everyone as a living soul. We do not judge an entire group or race of people based on the actions or behaviors of one or a few individuals. Whoever possesses this kind of mentality, their judgment and their heart is impaired. There is no such thing as a racist christian. Because when God opens your eyes to the gospel He gives you a heart to see every individual person as a living soul in need of a personal Savior and relationship with God. And that then becomes your main focus. Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; For you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Meaning that whatever color, race, or gender you were born is what you are.. but when you give your life to Christ who you are becomes– a child of God. That becomes your new identity and that is how you see every other saint that holds to the same faith as you, as a child of God. With all the division there is in the world today, the body of Christ needs to stand together in Unity more than ever before. The enemy wants to see us divided and not fellowshipping with one another but if we will join together in the Spirit standing in love and in truth we will strengthen and build one another up and be unscathed by the schemes of the devil. May this unity spread all throughout the body of Christ.”

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

—-SMACK THAT DEVIL TODAY …. HERE’S HOW YOU CAN DO THAT …. WHITE DUSTED (SKIN, HUE) SAINTS – KICK THAT DEVIL UNDER HIS FILTHY, EVIL CHIN – CALL OR EMAIL your black friends and tell them that you ARE lifting them in prayer today …. AND YOU BLACK SKINNED SAINTS – call or email your fellowship believers in Christ’s body and let them know your praying for them!!!! The devil is the author of hatred and God “is love.”

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8

Saints only Christ’s body can apply the healing balm of His blessed salvation in this fleeting, fallen world! There is no other solution! PREACH! DO! BE HIS BODY! HE’S WITH YOU EVERY STEP!!!!!
“Ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. ” Colossians 3:15

THERE are only 2 kingdoms in this world – Christ’s and the devil’s! Rescue the perishing as only God can do THROUGH YOU – HIS BODY!!!! AND GUESS WHAT?!?!?! JUST HOW MUCH MORE POWERFUL IS HIS LOVE DEMONSTRATED THAN WHEN YOU REACH OUT WITH CHRIST’S GOSPEL TO A PERSON WHO IS NOT OF YOUR RACE?!?!?!?!

Flood of Noah is a Type of Baptism

noah-gen-6-3

Flood of Noah is a Type of Baptism. 1 Pet 3:18-22

“Baptism” means “overwhelmed with calamity.” Satan is always the active agent in every calamity, each type of baptism, whether in fire as in Dan 3 or in water as in Gen 6-8 and Exodus 14.

The word “baptism” is also symbolic of our participation with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. See Rom 6:3-5. Satan kills and God raises the dead. God never kills and Satan can’t raise the dead.

In Gen 6:3, we see that God is striving to RESTRAIN the evil of mankind on earth.

Noah, his family and his creatures entered the ark thru a door in its side. The ark had three levels symbolizing tripartite man as the incarnate Christ. As a True Christians, we enter Christ thru the wound in His side, in His death. It is thru our death with Christ, the sharing of His sacred wounds, that we come to be in Him. Rom 6:3-5

In Gen 7:11, God STOPS RESTRAINING Satan. The heavenly and earthly flood gates are opened for Satan’s chaotic waters to be released and rush forth with destruction. Satan is always the one who has the power of death (Heb 2:14) and who steals, kills and destroys. John 10:10. Death is the enemy of God. 1 Cor 15:26. God allows death and takes the blame for it and also lets the Bible record, “I (The Lord) will destroy man . . .” Gen 6:7.

The flood destroys “the mighty men” who are the offspring of evil angels but raises, lifts up and saves the people and animals who entered the ark and takes them to the top of Mt Ararat. The cross destroys unbelieving mighty men as did the fiery furnace destroy “the mighty men” in Daniel 3:22. The cross and resurrection save and lift believers to the top of heaven and seats them there with Christ in heavenly places. Eph 2:6.

God STARTS AGAIN TO RESTRAIN Satan and his flood in Gen 8:2.

The ark rests on Ararat just as the believer finds rest thru his death with Christ. Resurrection rest means we no longer have to furnish the power to please God or get thru life. God furnishes the power while we rest!

The earth, thru this baptism in the flood waters of Genesis, has been purified and can now again be replenished just as it was in the beginning. See Gen 1 and 2. This is another example of the aikido-like self-destruction of evil. Satan’s flood destroyed Satan’s people and the people of God were saved, purified and raised up by it.

He who letteth (RESTRAINS) will let (RESTRAIN) until He be taken out of the way. 2 Thes 2:6-8. This is the principle of the cross and redemptive withdrawal all thru the Bible.

God’s judgments are always done in this way thru the principle of the cross. His wrath and anger is to let the angry ones, Satan and his minions, destroy evil and themselves! Satan casts out Satan. His house is thereby divided and so must fall. Mark 3.

This revelation of the flood comes from reading the Bible thru the lens of the cross-understanding. God does not kill or destroy. Satan steals, kills and destroys. God does allow Satan to do it but always with a redemptive and good purpose! God is good, not just sometime, but ALL the time!

And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. Rev 12:15-16.

Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear this truth, the God did not cause the flood of Noah but Satan did? It cannot be perceived thru human logic or intellect. God is love. His only way of killing and destroying is thru the principle of the cross and redemptive withdrawal.

sanctification - todd tomasella

The Truth about Holiness

“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Exodus 15:11

HOLINESS is NOT a work of the flesh saints any more than salvation is of mere men or a work of men (Galatians 3:3).

“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.” Psalms 37:39

He who saves, sanctifies – as we abide in Him (John 15:1-6; Philippians 2:12-13, etc.). Holiness is a work of the Holy Ghost in the life of the abiding saint (John 15:1-16). Any holiness that is outside of this biblical truth/model is a work of the flesh and God-less (Matthew 23:23-25; Galatians 3:3). CHRIST alone can save and sanctify! Only Jesus is the Savior and Sanctifier! 1 Corinthians 1:30 says “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and SANCTIFICATION, and redemption:” As the appropriation of all things in Christ’s kingdom, it’s by faith saints! (Romans 4:4-5; Hebrews 11:6) Please share this post.

holiness quote - todd tomasella

Holy Scripture reveals that there is a “True holiness” as opposed to a false or feigned holiness (Matthew 23:23-25; Ephesians 4:24). Which one are you walking in?

PERSONAL HOLINESS IS ESSENTIAL AND YET, IT’S NOT A WORK OF THE FLESH BUT RATHER A WORK OF GOD IN THE LIFE OF THE TRULY BORN AGAIN, CURRENTLY ABIDING BELIEVER WHOSE “FIRST LOVE” IS JESUS CHRIST (REVELATION 2:4-5).

“The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” Psalms 138:8

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13

Divine Boldness is not Brash

divine boldness

Biblically speaking, boldness is not brashness or being obnoxious. Actually those are a bad witness, aren’t they? Boldness is simply being fully confident in Christ and not being ashamed. Boldness should be married with great joy, grace, mercy, and love.
The Bible says that “the righteous are bold as a lion” and not that “the righteous are brash as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1

It seems obvious by reading the whole verse above, that Christ-glorifying boldness means one is grounded and confident in Christ and not timid or fearful. They are meek and temperate and settled in an abiding relationship with Jesus and therefore live free from sinful fear which is cast out by God’s love (1 John 4:16-18).

When God’s boldness is in a person through a rooted relationship with Christ, the 9 fruit of the Spirit will be manifesting (John 15:1-16).

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” Galatians 5:22-24

The key to an abiding relationship, fellowship with Christ is the daily cross – out of which will unfailingly produce the fruit that glorifies the LORD.

Father, in Jesus’ holy name, please instill yourself deeply in us this day. Let our whole identity be Christ. Steep and season in us Thy grace, truth, and love LORD Jesus.

THE PRAYER OF THE EARLY CHURCH WAS FOR DIVINE BOLDNESS. NOTE THAT THEY WERE DEPENDENT UPON THE LORD, SEEKING HIM BEFORE THEY WENT OUT AND DURING THAT WHOLE TIME THEY WERE BEING PERSECUTED. WHEN UNDER GREAT PERSECUTION, HAVING JUST BEEN BEATEN FOR CHRIST, THE APOSTLES CRIED OUT TO JESUS.

“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:29-31

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ our LORD, we ask You to grant Your people Christ-like boldness which is full of grace and truth. Quicken us in those times of persecution, to cry out to Thee for Your strength and boldness. Please keep us from misrepresenting You – from using Your holy name in vain. Bless me to be crucified with Christ, truth. In Jesus’ name.

True Ministers of Christ

truth quote

(PLEASE READ) “WE NEED MINISTERS AND PREACHERS WHO ARE MEN OF TRUTH, WHO FEAR GOD, AND TELL IT LIKE IT IS AND SET A GODLY EXAMPLE !!

A godly preacher will love you enough to preach the Truth to you and bring correction to you even if you do not like it! He will not be a crowd pleaser!! Woe to the minister who loves the applause of men and who avoids reproof, rebuke, correction and heartfelt exhortation! We are not called to be liked but to minister the Word of God.

SOME JUST WANT SWEETS WHEN WHAT THEY NEED IS THE STRONG MEDICINE OF THE WORD OF GOD! EVEN MANY OF OUR MODERN SONGS LACK GODLY CONTENT THAT SHOULD PUT THE FOCUS ON GOD HIMSELF. Some are very repetitive and very shallow and the focus is too much on me, me, me and how I feel.

Thank God for the ones that do glorify God! Just read an old hymnal when you are on your knees. You see depth and heartfelt convictions and biblical truths put to song.

We need godly ministers with the character of the men who served with Moses!

predators-larger-shadow3

predators larger shadowExodus 18:21 “Moreover thou shall provide out of the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers…”

MY HEART BREAKS THAT THERE ARE FEW MEN LIKE THIS TODAY. WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD IN THE PULPIT? WHERE ARE THERE GODLY MEN WHO HATE GREED? WHERE ARE THE MEN WHO LIVE AND PREACH THE TRUTH WITH INTEGRITY??

We need godly ministers who please God and do not tickle ears! Men who preach what is True not what is popular! Truth that convicts! Truth that converts! Truth that transforms people’s lives! Men filled with the Spirit of Truth!

We do not compromise the Truth, we declare the Truth! Truth is to be applied, not denied!

Spineless, soft, people pleasing preachers will tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to hear! Remember the local church will become like its pastor! He sets the example! I do not want pop culture opinions and smooth sayings!

1. A.W. TOZER : “I pray I may preach with such convicting power that my people will sweat. I do not want them to leave my services always feeling good. The last thing I want is to give them some kind of religious tranquilizer and let them go to hell in their relaxation! The messages in our churches should make backslidden Christians sweat!”

2. A.W. TOZER: ‘The pastor when facing his congregation on Sunday dare not think of the effect that his sermon will have on his job, his salary or his future relationship with the Church. No man is a good preacher who is not willing to lay his future on the line every time he expounds the Word!”

2nd Timothy 4:2-4 “Preach the Word: be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

DEAR FRIEND WE ARE IN THESE TIMES RIGHT NOW!!! FEW PREACH THE WORD! FEW REPROVE THEIR PEOPLE! FEW REBUKE ANYONE LEST THEY LOSE PEOPLE AND MONEY! MOST WILL NOT ENDURE “SOUND DOCTRINE.”

deceiverssmallThey want an instant “easy-going, relaxing” cozy false gospel that feeds their lusts for the things of the world! Where are the godly pilgrims who are on the narrow road that leads to heaven?? Pilgrims who set their affections on things above not on earthly things! The earth bound gospel that focuses our attention on the world is not the real gospel. The real gospel produces a person who is radical for Jesus and lives holy unto the Lord in a rotten sin-filled world!!

3. Let me give you one more quote from A.W. TOZER- “In many Churches the gospel has been so watered down until the solution is so weak that if it were medicine it would not cure anyone.” SHARE THIS POST WITH OTHERS AS THE LORD LEADS YOU.

PS-Jesus Himself said “the lusts of other things will choke the Word and it will become unfruitful.” Preachers who focus on “things” and not on knowing our high and holy God are deceiving you! Wake up and read the Word and develop discernment!
