There are Only Two Religions

 

There are only two true religions. One is the Way, the Truth and the Life through Jesus Christ. The other is the message from the serpent that showed up in the Garden of Eden. Look at these photos of where Buddhism came from. They don’t even try to hide it. The illumination they receive comes from the serpent.

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 
3  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 
4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 
5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:1-5

MANKIND is utterly depraved, sinful, and separated from God. He cannot redeem Himself. We have all sinned against out Maker who is the Judge of our eternal souls. We shall all stand before Him to give full account of our lives.

1-tim-4-1-2-bible

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:5

Christianity honors the perfect sacrifice of Christ on the cross and His merit alone! All other religions are works-based and therefore antichrist, counterfeit, false (John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5). ANYthing put in place of CHRIST is antichrist. Antichrist = in place of Christ.

Seeking the Presence of the LORD?

god presence

Seeking His Presence? Beware of the many methods created and cloaked as Christian which are nothing more than an attempt to conjure up God’s presence out of a self-serving agenda. Contemplative prayer and soaking come to mind as Satan’s counterfeits.
Simply put, contemplative prayer or centering prayer, is a way of praying that is not according to the biblical prescription. Contemplative prayers and soakers are simply rebels who refuse to obey Jesus so they want Jesus to just continue to dump His Holy Spirit on their rebellious hearts.

JESUS told you to die, not to run around seeking His presence in contemplative prayer or soaking meetings – with other self-serving flakes, counterfeits. He’ll decide that how much of His holy presence He puts on individuals – according to their personal obedience. He alone decides how much of His presence He chooses to put in our lives.

obliencePsalms 16 is prophetic of Jesus who rendered perfect obedience to His Father: “For thou wilt not leave my (Jesus’) soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalms 16:10-11)The “presence” of the LORD and “fulness of joy” He alone can give, only comes with the true disciple who is truly walking with Christ. We see this throughout Scripture.

“In his presence” sure is “fulness of joy” and He requires our obedience to bring us into His presence (Psalms 16:11).

“For he whom God hath sent (Christ) speaketh the words of God (fully obedient): for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.” John 3:34

As seen in the above verse, where Christ is our example, the LORD’s presence in our lives is contingent upon our abiding in Him, obeying Him (John 14:21-23, etc.). Seeking His presence without obeying Him, truly worshiping HIM, reveals a self-serving nature. We don’t seek the joy or His presence – We seek His face (Jeremiah 29:11-14).

IF you truly want more of the presence of the LORD, no need to mindlessly sit soaking or meditating. Get up and obey and then and only then will He graciously grant you greater anointing and reward!

We are to immerse yourself in His Word – Joshua 1:8 not mindless meditation which is new age paganism.

Many today want God to do more for them, they want more of His presence and to “soak” and yet, they’ve not obeyed Him and His simplest instructions. Not going to happen.

YOU can pray till you are blue in the face and God will not hear if you will not repent and literally obey Him: Proverbs 28:9 says: “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law (Word), even his prayer shall be abomination.”

“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” John 15:7

Of course we should seek and ask Him to be anointed and full of His Spirit in order to DO His work, and yet, such comes from laying down our lives – which He then raises upward by His presence.

“Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.” 2 Corinthians 4:10-12

The resurrection presence, life, glory, and power of Jesus fills and raises up the truly obedient – those who resign themselves to the crucified life.

praygisNancy Cote notes: “This movement is growing by leaps and bounds because this generation loves signs and wonders and what their itching ears want more than Sola Scripture of solid doctrine. Dying to self and picking up their cross and preaching of The Cross that is foolishness to them.”

Yet, Jesus’ presence does not come to us just because WE want it to. Isn’t a preoccupation with seeking His presence while not obeying Him cloaked pride? There are conditions to be met – obedience and truly worshiping HIM are essential. This is in contrast to seeking His presence for our self-serving purposes. Remember how the disciples wanted to sit at His right and and His left?

“Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.” Matthew 20:20-23

When you die – lay down your life – He will reciprocate with His resurrection life (2 Corinthians 4:10-12). That’s His promise but you must die to experience this, not try to control things yourself which is further evidence that you are not dying to self. He’s in control, not you.

Fact: Jesus says that to those who OBEY Him – live by faith – will be granted His presence, not those who selfishly seek to soak or conjure up His presence through their own merit or works for their own self–serving purposes.

Seeking His presence is paramount to seeking signs instead of the Savior Himself. What did Jesus say of the sign seekers?

“Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:” Matthew 12:38-39

Seeking His Presence or Simply Obeying Christ?
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:21-23

Today, so many who vainly believe they are Christ’s, are being misled into self-seeking experiences they are told are of God. Quite a contrast with New Testament disciples of Jesus we read about in the 27 book canon. The honest student of Scripture and follower of Jesus knows that a walk of faith, a denial of self (the cross), soundly grounded in the Word, is the walk of a true New Testament believer.

“And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.” Acts 5:32

It seems that today, many people claiming to know Jesus, seek to do anything except soberly and soundly follow Him, denying self, taking up the cross, and abiding in Him.

According to Jesus, in the end, at the Judgment, those who loved and obeyed Him will be received into glory and remain with Him eternally. In contrast, those who revel in the experiential, not being rooted in Christ, will be terminated into the bowels of eternal damnation (Matthew 7:21-23).

Transgender Talk

Transgender

REARRANGING AND REMOVING THINGS DOESN’T CHANGE THE DNA! YOU ARE NOT SELLING SANE PEOPLE ON THE DELUSIONAL FRAUD OF SO-CALLED TRANSGENDERISM!

Recently a politician said that “transgenerism is Satan’s plan.” He is correct. So called transgenderism IS Satan’s plan. Any sane person knows that. It’s a perversion of the 1 man + 1 woman marriage….. repentance is the answer, not attacking the mere messenger. Judgment day is on the way.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” Isaiah 5:20-21

Pastor Mark Herridge Sr. writes:

check

“For as long as the human race has been having babies families have been waiting outside the delivery room waiting for those famous words: “It’s a boy” or “It’s a girl” to affirm the gender of the child. And now with the modern craziness of this reprobate Society we are told that it is wrong to assume that a child is a male or female based on their birth sex. We are told by these same demented individuals that the child needs to grow up and decide for themselves irregardless of the gender of their birth. Such stupidity is hard for normal people to even comprehend. The end of this crazy world draws near.” Pastor Mark Herridge Sr.

“GENDER REASSIGNMENT”? Give us a break. Nonsense. CLUE: If you were born with male plumbing, you are MALE. If you were born with female plumbing, you are female. And, you will give account to your Maker! Judgment Day is on the way. Repent. God is holding you personally accountable for what He made you to be – originally.

“This LGBT movement and the Feminist Movements are tools of the Devil just Sucking the Life out of this country and trying to distort GOD’S plan and makeup of humanity.” William Pavichevich

MESSAGE FROM A MODERN “PASTOR”: (Note: Here’s a typical seminarian who doesn’t even understand the foundational truth of mankind’s fallen nature and the reason Jesus came. SMH)

“Transgenderism is a mental disorder. American needs to stop trying to protect them or make them feel accepted. What needs to be done is to get those practicing this perversion psychological help for their mental illness.”

REPLY:
So sin is now reduced to a mental disorder/illness and psycho-babble is now the answer? It’s a SIN not a mental disorder and psychology is a farce. The true minister of Christ knows these simple truths. This is the problem of today’s apostate church – pure rebellion and the rejection of Christ’s Gospel. “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8 Psycho-Heresy | Sin: Man’s Core Problem

Jesus Affirms His Creation!

“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them MALE and FEMALE,” Matthew 19:4

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; MALE and FEMALE created he them.” Genesis 1:27

How to Know You are being Led by the Spirit

11Spirit

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14

Yes it is those who are led by the Holy Spirit of God that are revealed to be truly of God. Yet, who are those people? Among all who claim to be following Jesus, who are those that make up His “little flock”? (Luke 12:32) Jesus made it clear that “many” who fully believe they are His really are not following Him and are not His and will be rejected in the end for not truly adhering to His Word (Matthew 7:21-29, etc.).

The Word of God is the only foundation that will not be washed away in the coming judgment (Matthew 7:21-29; Hebrews 12:24-29, etc.).

THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD IS THE UNCHANGING WILL OF GOD.

Are you grounded in God’s Word?

The “MORE Sure Word” is God’s Written Word

Many today claim and believe they are being led by the LORD’s Holy Spirit and yet those same people believe and are doing things contrary to what the Holy Spirit of God gave us in His written Word. Who’s wrong, those people or the LORD Almighty?

There are so many today who believe they are of God and led of His Spirit and yet, are Christ’s people to believe every person who claims to be led of the Spirit?

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits (against the written Word) whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1

The LORD’s apostle Paul came in the name of the LORD and yet, the noble believers in the city of Berea put him to the test as we do with our own hearts and all mere men:

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10-11

Divine Truth Recorded! “the record that God gave of his Son” is on “RECORD” in the Bible

In His blessed written Word, the LORD has given us “ALL things that pertain unto life and Godliness” and all who do not believe that “record” – that which is on written record – are shown to be “not of God.” (John 8:47; 2 Peter 1:3-4)

“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:10-13

Knowing We are in the Truth

todd tomasella books

Many today speak often of being led of the Spirit and yet never mention the Word. Beware! The primary way the LORD guides His New Testament church (individually and corporately) in through the Holy Scripture (2 Timothy 3:15-17, etc.). No one who is not living and being led according to the Word, is being led by the Spirit of God. In some cases, those who claim they are led by the Spirit wish to divorce themselves from truly adhering to the perfect Lordship of Jesus presented in His written Word and don’t want what they consider constraints. The true follower of Christ says with the psalmist:

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalms 119:105 (memorize today)

Regrettably, many today have been misled by the “many false prophets” who have taught them that after being saved they are not personally responsible to continue in Christ which means continuing in His Word (John 8:31-32; 15:1-6, etc.).

2 ways we can know we are in the truth and of the truth and discern whether or not others are being led of the LORD:

1. By knowing we are hearing and believing the Word of God which is the “MORE sure Word”:

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:16-21

2. By obeying God’s Word practically:

“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.” 1 John 3:18-19

How to Make Sure You Are Following Jesus – Being Led of His Holy Spirit (synonymous)

predators-larger-shadow3“Bind up the testimony (written Word), seal the law (Word) among my disciples. … To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:16, 20

A fuller portion of this magnificent text will further open our eyes:

“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. 17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. 19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:16-20

v16 The Word is to be bound to the individual believer. All true servants of Christ endeavor His people to His written Word, the primary way the LORD leads His New Testament believers and church (2 Timothy 3:16-16, etc.).

v17 The LORD is not available to the casual seeker but rather those who diligently seek Him (Jeremiah 29:11-14; Matthew 6:6; 2 Timothy 2:15, etc.)

v18 As God’s Word becomes flesh in His saints, powerful things happen by His holy hand

v19 There are many evil spirits with falsehoods and false doctrines and only the believer who clings to the truth, the written Word, will escape (1 Timothy 4:1-2, etc.)

v20 As we diligently discern by weighing all things against the written Word, we will know who is of the truth and not a wolf in sheep’s clothing by the Word of God (Matthew 7:15-15; John 8:47; Acts 17:10-11; 2 Timothy 2:15, etc.)

Jesus says:
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” John 16:13-14
There is no possibility “the Spirit of truth” would lead anyone to read or listen to that which contradicts and perverts His truth (John 16:13-14; 17:17) . “(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)” (Ephesians 5:9) …. Jesus says the Holy Spirit only leads people into the truth …. Any person who believes the Holy Spirit of God led them to listen to or buy the books of a wolf, is under the influence of “another spirit” which is from Satan (2 Corinthians 11:2-5; Galatians 1:6-9).
We are directly instructed to cease listening to all who do not speak strictly according to the Word of God:
“Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.” Proverbs 19:27

His Sanctified Saints

The body of Christ is being daily washed by the water of God’s Word as we fervently look for the soon return of Christ (Ephesians 5:25-27). The remnant believer allows the Word of the LORD to establish His sound doctrine in his life and is corrected by the Word as he sees his thoughts and believers did not align. This is how the saint of Christ is sanctified – set apart to the LORD.

God’s Two-Edged Sword: The Cross of Christ

heb-4-12g-696x236

The Cross is the sword of God’s violence against evil. The cross even looks like an ancient sword with a handle, a hilt, a blade with two edges and a point.

For the word of God (the Word of the Cross; 1 Cor 1:17-18) is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any TWO-EDGED SWORD, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:12.

The cross is two-edged because it frees and saves believers as it destroys unbelievers who reject and rebel against it. It cuts both ways, both saving and destroying depending on how people respond to its truth. It is this Word of the Cross that judges all people by allowing them to judge themselves. God and His Son, Jesus, judge no one. John 5:22; 8:15; 12:47-48; 12:31; 16:11.

The sword of the cross is like the fiery furnace of Daniel 3. The furnace saved and promoted God’s three men but destroyed the mighty men who pushed the three down into the fire. Dan 3:20-25.

Christ died and thereby destroyed Satan’s power of death, Satan’s works and the fallen nature of the old man. Heb 2:14; 1 Cor 2:6-9; 1 John 3:8; and Rom 6:6, KJV. But that same cross was the salvation and redemption of all who believe into Christ. Satan’s sword and wrath against Jesus, the cross, became God’s sword and wrath against Satan. It cut two ways: AGAINST Satan and His people and FOR God and His people.

In Judges 7, the sword of the enemy against Gideon’s army became God’s sword against the enemy. Judges 7:18-22.

31 cross prayer for christ book

Goliath’s sword cut for God’s man, David, and against Goliath. David cut Goliath’s head off using Goliath’s sword to do it. 1 Sam 17:41-54 @v51.

Saul’s sword was two-edged, too. Saul’s own sword killed Saul (suicide) but elevated Saul’s enemy, David, to the throne of Israel.

The sword of Satan, the cross, destroyed Satan and elevated Christ to glory. Heb 2:14.

The sword of the cross destroys Satan’s best inside agent, the flesh, and elevates our spirit man to the throne of glory with Jesus, seated with Christ in heavenly places. Eph 2:6; Gal 5:24.

How will this two-edged cross cut in you: against you or for you? Every moment of every day you are deciding whether to take up the sword of the cross, die on it and be saved by it OR take it up against someone else and be destroyed by it. Luke 9:23-25.

See also Isaiah 8:13-15 for another example of this two-edged sword of the cross where, in the same event, comfort is given to those who trust God and simultaneous destruction to those who trust their idols.

He who takes up the sword shall die by his own sword! Matt 26:52.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth but a sword (the two-edged cross). Matt 10:34.

God’s sword is not a sword He used in order to kill people. It is a sword to save people that He died on. By dying he destroyed His enemy, Satan and the devil’s power of death was put to the sword. Heb 2:14.

This metaphorical sword of God is last seen in Rev 19:15. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress (also symbolic of the Christ on the cross) of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. The sword coming out of Christ’s mouth is the Word of the Cross that will destroy evil in the end time as it has throughout the New Testament.

The cross is God’s only sword. It is also His winepress and wrath against evil. God will never take up a literal sword against anyone. Otherwise, He would have to die by His own sword, by His own rule stated in Matt 26:52.

There are two edges to the use of the word “sword” in the Bible, Satan’s literal sword, the cross, and God’s metaphorical sword, the cross. Both swords are found in one and the the same sword, the same cross, the two-edged cross of Christ.

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cheribims, a flaming sword (symbol for the cross) which turned every way (two-edged), to keep the way of the tree of life. The two-edged sword both opens and closes the way to life, the eternal life of Christ.

Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord (ways of the cross) are right, and the JUST (the just shall live by faithing it thru the Cross experiences) shall walk in them (the ways of the cross): but the TRANSGRESSORS (rejectors of Christ and His cross) shall fall therein. Hos 14:9. Thus, the two-edged sword of the cross both saves and destroys!

And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And He said unto them, It is enough. Luke 22:38.

The two swords are found in the one cross: one a literal sword of Satan, with which to kill and thereby conquer; the other a spiritual sword of Christ, on which to die and thereby conquer.

Remarriage? What Does the Bible Teach?

divorce-remarriage

Summary of what the Bible teaches on divorce and remarriage.

Marriage was originally intended to be permanent when instituted by its Designer (Matthew 19:3-6). The following words are presented to bring to light what the Almighty has stated concerning the unfortunate issues that face the victims of marital sins and what instructions and liberties He has sovereignly granted in such cases. Through the preponderance of Scripture it becomes clear that just like our covenant relationship with the LORD, so marriage is conditional upon the continued fidelity of each party.

The late Donald Stamps, in his Life in the Spirit Study Bible commentary wrote:

“EXCEPT IT BE FOR FORNICATION. God’s will for marriage is one mate, one marriage for life (vv. 5-6; see Gen. 2:24, Sol. 2:7; 4:12; Mal. 2:14). To this Jesus gives an exception, namely ‘fornication.’ Fornication is marital unfaithfulness (Gk. porneia) and includes adultery or any kind of sexual immorality (5:32; 19:9). Hence divorce is to be permitted when sexual immorality is involved. The following are important biblical facts concerning divorce.

(1) When Jesus criticizes divorce in 19:6-7, He is not criticizing a separation because of adultery, but a divorce permitted in the O.T. in those cases where a husband discovered premarital unchastity after the marriage ceremony had taken place (Deut. 24:1-4). God’s desire in such cases was that the two remain together. However, He permitted divorce due to premarital unchastity because of the hardness of the people’s hearts (vv. 7-8).

(2) In the case of immorality after marriage, the O.T. law prescribed the dissolving of the marriage by executing both the offending parties (Lev. 20:10; Deut. 22:22). This, of course, would leave the innocent person free to remarry (Rom. 7:2; 1 Cor. 7:39).

(3) Under the new covenant the privileges of the believer are no less. Although divorce is a tragedy, marital unfaithfulness is such a cruel sin against one’s mate that Christ states that the innocent party has a proper right to end the marriage by a divorce based on adultery. He or she is free to remarry another believer (1 Cor. 7:27-28).

(4) Paul’s treatment of marriage and desertion in 1 Cor. 7:12-16 indicates that a marriage also may be dissolved by the desertion of an unbelieving spouse. He further indicates that remarriage by the believer in such cases is not sin (see 1 Cor. 7:15; 27-28).” Donald Stamps, Life in the Spirit Study Bible, p. 1443

QUESTION:

“So can married couples divorce for any reason?”

REPLY:

No. The Bible gives 2 clear reasons for divorce and so divorce is never a “I’m tired of her/him so I’m divorcing them!” Noooo. Marriage is ordained by God to be permanent and yet, abandonment and adultery/fornication are specific sins that can break that covenant if the offended party chooses (Matthew 19:9; 1 Corinthians 7:15-16, 27-28).

Shame on the NFL

one knees

Take a Knee?

IT’S INTERESTING TO SEE THOSE WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED NOTHING TO A COUNTRY SEEK TO DESTROY IT!

Todd tomasella: So you’re going to deface the flag of the country you’ve become a multi-millionaire in, spitting in the face of those who funded your unwarranted earnings? You will reap what you’ve sown.

Teams, owners, coaches, who do not hearken to the just admonition of our president, will feel the results. Watch.

Choice is a freedom given us by our Maker and confirmed by our forefathers in Constitutional law. The First Amendment freedom of speech allows for protest. It also provides for my own freedom of speech. And, as an American, a United States Marine Veteran, this post is to exercise God’s freedom to speak up on this issue.

chooseI just heard from a man who hasfor many years held 2 season tickets for the NFL team in his state. He’s furious and cutting off all ties to the NFL for their refusal to stand against the ungrateful, foolish rebellion of these sad men who stand against the president and this country. What if people had done this against the islamic, antichrist, baby murdering devil who occupied the white house for 8 years?

Seems as if some wish to make this public sport about THEM and THEIR cause – spitting in the face of those from whose money they get paid way too much. That’s their prerogative and yet it’s the opinion of many that the NFL should not be allowing this.

Keep in mind that world history reveals that no race has been mistreated more than the Jews.

When they should be kneeling – bowing – before an Almighty, Holy God in thanksgiving for living in this country and being unwarranted millionaires, they protest!

mat lightGod Bless Matt Light. In response to this catastrophe, this NFL veteran makes this statement:

“If you think that it’s OK to take a knee during our national anthem and disrespect openly the national anthem, you are wrong,” Light told the Boston Herald after Sunday’s game. “I don’t care if you have a ‘but what about’ or a ‘it’s because of,’ that doesn’t’ matter.” Light said the kneeling would never have happened when he was with the Patriots. “As a guy that’s been there and helped set up the Patriot Way so they can walk in there and do what they do, it’s beyond disheartening,” he told the Herald. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been ashamed to be a Patriot. And I promise you I’m not the only one.”

Are we surprised that Roger Goodell is backing this rebellion (protests)? Roger Goodell is intentionally promoting witchcraft, the illuminati, free masonry, and Satanism. Goodell is decidedly of the devil. Only a blind man didn’t see the symbolism in the last numerous halftime performances at the superbowls. Can you remember one that wasn’t intentionally worshiping Satan? Yet, Goodell and the NFL deceitfully claim to be a “force for good” while they indoctrinate multi-millions of viewers in witchcraft and support the NFL who despise the country where the NFL does business. Goodell and the NFL have made it their gig and goal to promote evil.

WHY ARE THE NFL PROTESTORS ANGRY?

dear NFL

First off, why aren’t these players who protest using their minds, money, and energy to give back? Why aren’t they thankful?

Lack of gratefulness leads to apostasy:

“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, NEITHER WERE THANKFUL; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Romans 1:21

Instead of being thankful and grateful, some protest (Romans 1:21).

“Those who give the least complain the most.” unknown

From Joseph Spillman:

“Trump’s problem is that he is living in a time warp. He wants things to be normal and sane and rational and they simply aren’t. If its 1955 or even 1975 then a player disrespecting our national flag would be summarily fired from the team. Period. No arguments. No fanfare. No nonsense. But these are not normal times. However I feel stuck in the same time warp and his reasoning resonates with me. This is a great and generous country that has allowed sports figures (essentially entertainers) to prosper in amazing ways. Their six and seven figure incomes have literally and figuratively intoxicated them to the point that they think they are more than they actually are. Trump is exactly right. its time to vacate the stadiums and let them fend for themselves. They can disrespect this country and its flag on their own time.”

The Word of God is prophetic by divine nature, and foretold exactly what we’d see among sinful men in the end times leading up to the return of Jesus:

“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 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

“This NFL protesting just shows how much people Hate God by their disrespectful attitude towards the flag/our country. because the national anthem does talk about God! and how our forefathers knew they could not do it apart from God s help! and it is spreading like wild fire ! people are so far from God, that’s why the Wrath of God is coming, and there is nothing that can stop it! only prayer can delay it, but it is still on its way! I believe the Gospel has been preached to the ends of the earth and it is a sign of the times, God waits patiently for people to turn to His Son, but time is running out!” Roland Gutierrez
