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

When You Give, Let it Go!

GIVING

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17

When we give, God says it’s to be with NO STRINGS ATTACHED! – “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:” (Matthew 6:3) The idiom “let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth” speaks of true humility and brokenness in our giving – and it’s “more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
It’s witchcraft to use your giving against someone you gave to. This is an inner evil, an iniquity that must be repented of and denounced. If you are going to give – just let it go! It’s wasn’t yours in the first place. You own nothing – it’s all God’s. “all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.” (1 Chronicles 29:14) ….

Of Matthew 6:3 William MacDonald writes:

“When the follower of Christ does a charitable deed, it is to be done in secret. It should be so secret that Jesus told His disciples ‘let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:’ Jesus uses this graphic figure of speech to show that our charitable deed should be for the Father, and not to gain notoriety for the giver. This passage should not be pressed to prohibit any gift that might be seen by others, since it is virtually impossible to make all one’s contributions strictly anonymous. It simply condemns the blatant display of giving.” William MacDonald, Believer’s Bible Commentary, p. 1223

Here’s a wider view of the passage:

mathew
“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.” Matthew 6:1-4

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

Get into God’s Word.

Saint, what Bible verse(s) are you memorizing today?

None of this will happen by accident. You must make Jesus and therefore His Word the absolute highest priority of your life!

God’s Word will never get into you – until you get into it.

You’ve rebelled long enough. Immediately memorize: Job 12:23; Psalms 119:89, 105, 130; Proverbs 4:4; 13:13; Jeremiah 15:16; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:16-17; 1 Peter 2:2

Writing out each verse with Bible reference on index cards will exponentially increase your ability to memorize. You do not and never have lacked ability but rather application. “Study” means to diligently devour and learn (2 Timothy 2:15). Now is your moment to repent and confess your sins and excuses. Denounce all of this satanic pablum spewed by those who desire for you to remain ignorant and dumb.

Get a King James Bible. Never mind the lying excuses of not being able to understand it. That is a diabolical myth. God’s Word is self-interpretative to those who study it.

What the Bible Says About Familiar Spirits

witchcraft familiar spirits

Todd Tomasella: “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I AM the LORD your GOD.” Leviticus 19:31 King James Bible

A familiar spirit is a demon that is summoned by a medium with the intention that the spirit summoned will obey his or her commands. Often, familiar spirits are believed to be the spirits of people who have died (Duet. 18:11). However, Biblically this is not the case. Such appearances are in actuality demonic forces imitating people in order to deceive.

We know that people cannot come back from the dead from what Jesus said in Luke 16:19-31 when He gave us the story of Lazarus and the rich man. Jesus said in verse 26 “and besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.” So, we can see that people cannot come back from the dead. However, we cannot leave this topic without addressing 1 Samuel 28 that deals with Saul and the medium who, apparently, actually contacted the departed Spirit of Samuel. Commentators are split on whether or not this was actually Samuel, but the text seems to imply it was. So why the exception? We are not sure, but it might have been allowed for the purpose of rebuking Saul for his sin–something that does not happen with familiar spirits when they manifest. Perhaps it is a teaching tool to show us the difference between those who are really of God (Samuel) and those who are not (familiar spirits).

familiar spiritsThe two words, “familiar spirit,” in the King James Bible are translated into the English from the single Hebrew word obe אֹוב.

• Lev. 19:31, “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”
• 1 Chron. 10:13, “So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to inquire of it.”
• 2 Chron. 33:6, “And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.” • Lev. 19:31, “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.”
• 1 Chron. 10:13, “So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the LORD, because of the word of the LORD which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it.”
• 2 Chron. 33:6, ” He made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger.

“Question: “What are familiar spirits?”Answer: The word familiar is from the Latin familiaris, meaning a “household servant,” and is intended to express the idea that sorcerers had spirits as their servants ready to obey their commands. Those attempting to contact the dead, even to this day, usually have some sort of spirit guide who communicates with them. These are familiar spirits.

Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27; and Deuteronomy 18:9-14 refer to “mediums and familiar spirits” and forbids being involved with them, as they are an abomination to the Lord. A medium is one who acts as a liaison to supposedly contact or communicate with the dead on behalf of the living. In reality mediums are contacting demons who convince the mediums that they are “familiar” and can be trusted and believed. The practices associated with mediums and familiar spirits were banned in Israel, and the punishment for practicing such things was death.

familiar-spirits1Familiar spirits and spirit guides are under the control of their master, Satan. They influence people to spread lies and deceit in order to thwart the kingdom of God. To knowingly open oneself to the work of demons is an evil thing: “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in [a] fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12a). Some avenues through which demons or “familiar spirits” can gain entrance into a person’s life are divination, transcendental meditation, visualization, necromancy, witchcraft, drugs, and alcohol, sin filled occult movies and sinful acts. These are all activities that believers are exhorted to avoid. Instead, we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit, with love, with joy, and with the fullness of life that comes from personally knowing The LORD Jesus Christ. We are also to be on guard, “for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

“And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set My Face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I AM The LORD your God.” Leviticus 20:6-7 {KJV}

“And when I see the Blood, I will pass over you.” Exodus 12:13b King James Bible

How We Know the Bible is the only Holy Book

Jesus-angry-look

This is an essential component of divine truth imperative for a sound foundation.

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” Isaiah 46:9-10

ONLY GOD COULD KNOW “THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.” (ISAIAH 46:9-10) PLEASE MEDITATE ON THIS. THE WORD OF GOD IS SEEN TO BE JUST THAT BECAUSE IT FORETOLD IN DETAIL BEFOREHAND MANY EVENTS THAT HAVE COME TO PASS JUST AS THEY WERE SPOKEN HUNDREDS AND SOMETIMES THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THEY HAPPENED. FOR EXAMPLE: THE EXACT TOWN THE MESSIAH WAS TO BE BORN IN WAS FORETOLD (BETHLEHEM) AND HE WAS (MICAH 5:2), THAT HE WOULD BE MIRACULOUSLY BORN OF A VIRGIN AND HE WAS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE CALLED EMMANUEL AND HE WAS AND IS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE BETRAYED FOR 30 PIECES OF SILVER AND HE WAS (ZECHARIAH 11:12-13), …. MORE ON THE CHART BELOW.

The LORD told us in His Word that not one of His promises, including the prophecies of His and our Messiah, would ever fail. They are as sure as life and the One who gave it.

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail … ” Isaiah 34:16

No other “holy book” can make this claim (foretelling the future and their exact fulfillment) which makes them false, counterfeit.

THESE PROPHETIC PROMISES AND THEIR FULFILLMENT WOULD BE STATISTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS THEY ORIGINATED FROM GOD WHO TELLS THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.

More prophecies and their fulfillment on the chart below. Please pore prayerfully over the list of these prophecies and their fulfillment and please help others to know this amazing, divine phenomenon.  This will be the most foundation-building study of your whole life. This is essential in being truly grounded in Christ.

Why Christians Shouldn’t Yoga

yoga

Todd Tomasella: “Yoga means to yoke. Yoking with demons! We take His yoke, it’s easy. His burden is light. Thanks brother!” Angela Alatorre

YOGA is a cheap substitute for the real thing. Yoga can’t forgive your sins or remove the anguish, grief, and shame associated with sin. Jesus is the Prince of peace and without Him there is no peace. Only Jesus can do that! Only Jesus saves. Only Jesus redeems. Only Jesus heals. Only Jesus forgives. Only Jesus cleanses the conscience and grants eternal life!

You are a sinner in need of God’s forgiveness.

God made our bodies to breath automatically. There’s no need not learn how to breathe better. In fact, you may be breathing in demons and becoming demon possessed. The need is for repentance for the forgiveness of sins and to prepare to meet our Maker.

What is Yoga?

Simply put: Yoga means yoking. Yoga is the bringing in of evil spirits from the enemy of all souls via exercise. Exercise is the catch. The Bible tells us that “bodily exercise profiteth little.” There is a “little” profiting to “bodily exercise.” Since most of us don’t get much exercise during our work day, we utilize gyms etc., to get that exercise. In doing so, Satan is capitalizing on this phenomenon – he’s crept in unawares to beguile and possess as many as possible.

Douglas R. Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary and a respected specialist on the New Age Movement, warns Christians that yoga is not merely about physical exercise or health. “All forms of yoga involve occult assumptions,” he warns, “even hatha yoga, which is often presented as a merely physical discipline.” While most adherents of yoga avoid the more exotic forms of ritualized sex that are associated with tantric yoga, virtually all forms of yoga involve an emphasis on channeling sexual energy throughout the body as a means of spiritual enlightenment.

Deceitfully Crouched in Innocence

Yoga is just another typical age old deception repackaged.

“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:6

Yoga is like what is called “whidevilste magic” or “good witches.” No such thing as good or godly magic or witches. They are all from the dark side and therefore in opposition to the light of Jesus Christ who is the light of the world (John 8:12). Such deceptive terms are used by “seducing spirits (demons)” to cloak their evil agenda in order to ensnare the gullible.

“The word yoga is problematic. Yoga means ‘to yoke.’ … using the word begs the question, ‘Yoked to whom?’ …the postures and techniques of yoga were designed to be offerings to the millions of Hindu gods. But ultimately, yoga was intended to yoke a person to the so-called ‘Lord of Yoga’ – Sheva, the destroyer. …these realities make yoga, regardless of how it’s packaged, incompatible with Christianity.”

“Yes…Amen! He (Jesus) is our Peace. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you….” (John 14:27)” Eliset Igat

“AMEN A MILLION TIMES, NO YOGA, PIYO, HOROSCOPE, ENERGIES, MEDITATION, NONE OF THIS…. AMEN AND AMEN.” Paula Brinson

“I meditate on God’s Word and not sitting like that— it looks demonic.” Valencia Hargrave

“So, what you are saying is that a huge portion of those saying they are saved are going to church on Sunday and are like swinging half-dressed from the rafters during the week! And they call that the narrow road!!! Just like the world, in their mind there is no such thing as an abomination because if it fits their fancy it has to be okay. HOWEVER, THE LORD SAYS AND WILL TREAT YOGA, BREATH PRAYERS, CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER, ALL OF IT AS AN ABOMINATION! His thoughts are not our thoughts, His are much higher. We are not to take on the practices of eastern religion—or any other for that matter. Why? Because it is all Satan’s power, not the Lord’s. Every other religion was begun under the influence of Satan himself to draw men away from Christ, the only one who could save them and give them eternal life. And he, Satan, provides them with all kinds of practices and experiences to keep them on his line— away from the true and living God, the one and only God, the only way to Heaven.” Karen Graves
