WASH ME JESUS…

When you realize just how naked, sinful, and dirty you are, you will cling to the cross and fix your eyes on Jesus…

The Simple Gospel

How distracted we become when we take our eyes off Jesus. Lucifer loves to mess with Christians. How many Christians have fallen by the wayside, consumed with the unimportant and the trivial. How very large and important can the peripheral appear in the light of Lucifer.

You are a sinner, lost and bound for an eternity in Hell. Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, died on a cross and shed his Blood for your sin. He was made sin for you, in order that you, through him, might become the righteousness of God. This salvation is offered freely but you must accept the conditions…
• You must believe.
• You must repent.
• You must agree with him that you are a helpless sinner.
• You must take up your cross.
• You must follow him.
• You must endure to the end.

If you are saved, the doctrine of “Once saved, always saved,” is a stupid peripheral… No one who is saved asks how much sin they can get away with and still go to Heaven… Such questions are unthinkable to the man with a cross on his back and his eyes fixed on Jesus.

No saved person would ever consider grace as a license to sin. Hyper-Grace is an offence to the one who loves God. Grace is what saved that man from Hell. Grace is what made him pure. Grace is what set him free from the power of sin… grace could never be permission to live a lifestyle that is offensive to the God who saved him.

My friend Jim, is not consumed with the idea that I must call him James because his mother did. Jesus is not concerned that you call him Yeshi because his mother did or Yeshua because the Rabbi did… The man who is in love with Jesus knows that his Savior is not concerned with such trivia…

The fellow with the cross worn blisters on his back does not worry about the Ten Commandments and he has no illusion that he has the power to keep any of them. That cross tends to get heavy and you find that you are staring at Jesus… You cannot commit adultery or kill your neighbor with a cross on your back and your eyes fixed on Jesus… You never think about the Law or it’s consequences. You think about Jesus, you go where Jesus goes and you do what Jesus does… It ain’t words on a rock, it is the Rock of your Salvation. Your Sabbath is not a day but a man… you rest in Jesus and you carry on…

It is hard to be consumed with the shape of the earth… the road to Heaven goes straight up and it is covered with the blood of the saints… Your back will bleed under the weight of that cross…

Jesus is concerned with the salvation of your neighbors and family. If you follow him, that burden will pass to your shoulders…

If your mind is filled with trivia, you will not care for the souls around you. You will not love God or your neighbor… Distraction is such a powerful weapon of the enemy…

When you realize just how naked, sinful, and dirty you are, you will cling to the cross and fix your eyes on Jesus… The Hymnwriter wrote, “Wash me Savior lest I die…” when you understand that, deep within your soul, the rest of the garbage will fade away…

Nothing but the Blood… Nothing but the Blood.

IN DEFENSE OF BILLY GRAHAM

“Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots…”

Jesus loves, saves and builds up. Satan hates, condemns and tears down. Who does your example tell us that you follow?

Three lines of attack have been leveled against Billy Graham:

  1. He is a Mason.
  2. He is a Catholic.
  3. He denied that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

There are a lot of different stories told, but they all fall under one of those three headers.

Dr. Graham never drank, or caroused, or cheated on his wife. No one ever accused him of lying or stealing. He was never rich, he was an employee of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which was run by an independent board. Dr. Graham never sat on the board and he never ran the organization that bore his name. He lived all of his adult life in the same house, on the same farm in North Carolina… It was comfortable but not even close to anything you could call a mansion or a mega-home… There really was very little that one could accuse the Evangelist of doing or being that was even slightly wrong.

There are many Masons in Heaven because Billy Graham was unafraid to visit their lodges or preach the Gospel there. There are others in Heaven because he rented Masonic Halls to preach in when he was starting out… So, there are photos of Billy with Masons… “Aha! That will give ammunition to the narrow minded little bigots!” I can almost hear Satan shouting for joy… Never mind that if you were ever there, or if you listened to those programs on tape, all the good man ever did there was what he always did, preach the Gospel.

Some may not understand but when Billy started to preach, Catholics were threatened with their immortal souls if they so much as attended a picnic sponsored by an Evangelical Church. Reading a Gospel Tract was a mortal sin and they were absolutely forbidden to read the Bible for themselves. Most Catholics went to confession every week, ate fish on Fridays and never missed Mass. It was a closed society… Good Catholics would run in terror if you started to talk about Jesus…

Then, Billy Graham went to see the Pope. The Pope liked Billy and the world reeled in shock and awe when the Pope gave Catholics everywhere the right to go to Billy’s crusades and listen to him do what he always did, preach the Gospel… Millions of Catholics found Jesus at those crusades… some of them left the Catholic Church, many stayed, but they had met Jesus and that changed everything… But we have some old photos of Billy with the Pope and that is enough to bring out the bigotry and hatred in those willing to listen to the Devil…

Then, as an old man, Billy was interviewed on TV. Perhaps he was not as sharp as he once was… Maybe he never saw the trap, but he answered the question anyway… Many have pulled two or three sentences out of those interviews and used them as a reason to damn his soul and ruin his reputation. What he really said, in context, is that a man or a woman in any religion, being convicted by the Spirit of God, could find God and find salvation through the Grace of God, even if they had never heard the Name of Jesus…

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

God has witnessed to all men everywhere through Creation. Because of that witness, God says that they are “without excuse.” If they are without excuse when they reject God, would God not save those who, based on that witness, call out to him for mercy? Would God condemn those who call on him because they have never heard his Name?

No one doubts that salvation is in Christ alone. The only issue at stake here is, is it necessary to know what his Name is? Is it Jesus, the Son of God, who saves or the “magic” in his Name? Is it Jesus as both God and man who saves or is his name a magic mantra that saves those who pronounce it correctly?

Would Jesus reject a sinner who cried out to Him, confessing his sins and begging for salvation… just because the Missionary who was supposed to tell him about the Son of God stayed home and worked for McDonalds? No, God says that He has called all men everywhere… Can a Muslim or a Hindu who sees God in the Creation and calls out for mercy be saved? Billy and I maintain that God is just. Some would tell me that I am lost because I pronounce the Name of God in English and not in Hebrew… I do not believe that any more than I believe that God rejects penitent sinners because they have never heard his Name… But a couple of phrases, uttered by a very old mind, in a very old man, are enough to provide all the witness the bigots need to damn his eternal soul…

…and yes, I know that those who see his Name as a magic mantra will condemn me as a heretic.

Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots… that is nothing compared to some old photos with Masons and the Pope and a TV interview made when senility was already setting in… No, that is far too important… Preaching the pure, Bible Gospel for fifty years to 250 million people (live) and billions on TV, counts for nothing… The 96 million people who testified that they met Jesus at his crusades are all liars, damned to the Pope’s Masonic Hell… Just ask a Facebook Christian…

Not me, no thank you… I will stand on a life lived in the public eye with not so much as a single scandal. I will stand on fifty years of documented and recorded Gospel sermons in which no heresy can be found. I will stand as one of the millions who attended his crusades and found the message faithful and true. I will stand with the billions who listened to him preach on TV, and although I was already saved, I will stand with the millions who found Jesus under his ministry.

Most of the haters will never read this, their minds have been snapped shut… A few videos, by those who’s jealously forced them to try to destroy that to which they could never attain, have convinced them that Billy was a heretic… I really want to be there when they try to explain that one to God. That should be good for more than a few laughs…

If your god has led you to hate and destroy such a man… you might look for another God…

Aliens and Strangers

“The Kingdom of God is peopled by those who have repented and followed Jesus. The Kingdom of Satan is called Babylon on earth. Every single person on earth is either a citizen of Babylon or a citizen of Heaven.”

To live as strangers and pilgrims, traveling through a foreign land, is to gain Heaven and eternal life…

To plant both feet in Babylon and swear allegiance to her Prince, is to die as an alien and a stranger to the Kingdom of God and her King…

LEARN WHAT THESE SCRIPTURES MEAN:

1 Chronicles 29:15 “For we are sojourners before You, and tenants, as all our fathers were; our days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope.”

“FOR WE ARE SOJOURNERS BEFORE YOU, AND TENANTS, AS ALL OUR FATHERS WERE”

Hebrews 11:13 All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. 14 For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. 15 And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.

“HAVING CONFESSED THAT THEY WERE STRANGERS AND EXILES ON THE EARTH.”

1 Peter 2: 11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. 12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.

“YOU AS ALIENS AND STRANGERS”

You can be a good citizen of Babylon and keep hoping that your Babylonian Prince will save you and your nation apart from repentance or you can repent and trust Jesus Christ to rescue you out of Babylon.

Trump is a Babylonian Prince and a servant of the Father of lies. Jesus is the Son of God and the King of Glory. You must belong to one kingdom or the other; you cannot be a dual citizen. You must follow one Prince or the other; you cannot follow both.

The great thing about demonic deception is that the deceived never know that they are being deceived.

This is not about Trump over Hillary or Obama; this is all about the choice between Lucifer’s Prince and the Prince of Glory… This is Heaven or Hell… This is realizing that Lucifer’s Prince, in all his Luciferian splendor is no less evil than Satan’s Dark Prince…

There are only two Kingdoms in all of creation:

  1. The Kingdom of God
  2. The Kingdom of Satan.

The Kingdom of God is peopled by those who have repented and followed Jesus.

The Kingdom of Satan is called Babylon on earth.

Every single person on earth is either a citizen of Babylon or a citizen of Heaven.

EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON EARTH IS EITHER A CITIZEN OF BABYLON OR A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN.

Babylon is divided into two artificial divisions:

  1. Satanic or Dark
  2. Luciferian or Light.

Think of the “Force” in Star Wars.

Satan is one and he has one Kingdom, but as a ploy and a deception he appears to rule one kingdom as the Prince of Darkness and the other as an Angel of Light. He scripts his puppets well and they appear to fight each other… some for Satanic evil and others for Luciferian “good”.

Satan is one and he has one Kingdom

Clinton and Obama are Satanic, and Trump, like Bush and Reagan before him, is Luciferian.

You cannot swallow the Star Wars Plot and the Washington Puppet Show as if it were reality… That is the deception…

Ask God to open your eyes…

Fighting for Lucifer, in the vain hope that he will defeat Satan, is useless and not very smart…

Think about it!

Apostle or Roman Agent?

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent…”

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent. Everything is created by God [Gen.1/1]. Paul’s attempt to fulfill away the laws of God marks the single greaest failure in biblical history. The Romans and Christianity also failed this attempt, to the extent not a single Christian country can stand without the Hebrew laws. Even God cannot change His covenant and laws, because God is Truth.

Ps 105/8 He hath remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations; 10 And He established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant.”

To which I replied, “And you sir, are a Hell bound pagan, having rejected the Word of God.”

His is however, the logical end to the beliefs of the legalist and Judaizer… You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and at the same time insist on placing gentile Christians under the Law… Every Hebrew Roots believer, Legalist and Judaizer will eventually be forced to either trash their doctrine or make Paul a reprobate… There is no other honest choice…

I once had a Hebrew Roots “Pastor” send me a 4,000-word essay on why Paul was not an Apostle and it was only by a Roman Catholic plot that his books were included in the Bible… Seriously, that is the only… the very only answer that one can come up with that can possibly justify the attempt to place Christians under the law of Moses…

You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and his writings are the Word of God and believe that Christians are forbidden to eat pork and shellfish and that they are required to go to church on Saturday… That is an oxymoron on steroids…

But none, absolutely none of the Judaizers will accept that they are bound by the whole law. They are bound only to dietary laws and the Sabbath… The rest of the Law can and should be ignored… You cannot preach that with Paul’s Epistles in your Bible…

I wrote, “While you are enforcing Leviticus 11, why not enforce Leviticus 15? Who gave you permission to enforce one chapter and ignore the rest of the book? When you come into full compliance with all of Leviticus, I might even listen to that garbage you selectively pick out of a single chapter… You are going to insist that rules regarding food are still in force but rules concerning blood are trashed? Good luck explaining that one to God!

Leviticus 15:19 ‘When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. 20 Everything also on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. 21 Anyone who touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 22 Whoever touches any thing on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 23 Whether it be on the bed or on the thing on which she is sitting, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until evening. 24 If a man actually lies with her so that her menstrual impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean.

25 ‘Now if a woman has a discharge of her blood many days, not at the period of her menstrual impurity, or if she has a discharge beyond that period, all the days of her impure discharge she shall continue as though in her menstrual impurity; she is unclean. 26 Any bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge shall be to her like her bed at menstruation; and every thing on which she sits shall be unclean, like her uncleanness at that time. 27 Likewise, whoever touches them shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 28 When she becomes clean from her discharge, she shall count off for herself seven days; and afterward she will be clean. 29 Then on the eighth day she shall take for herself two turtledoves or two young pigeons and bring them in to the priest, to the doorway of the tent of meeting. 30 The priest shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. So the priest shall make atonement on her behalf before the Lord because of her impure discharge.’

31 “Thus you shall keep the sons of Israel separated from their uncleanness, so that they will not die in their uncleanness by their defiling My tabernacle that is among them.”

So throw out 80% of your New Testament and declare Paul a reprobate or throw out your Demon Doctrine that forces that decision down your throat…

GOD AS THE AUTHOR OF EVIL

“The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.”

Daniel 2:21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings…

The way people rip this single verse out of context and use it in ways contrary to the record of the whole Bible is amazing… People use this verse in a way that makes God directly responsible for every evil thing done by every king who ever lived…

This verse, ignored while Obama was president, is now being used to lift up and support Trump as God’s man on earth and the savior of America and all things American…

The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.

God complains about the Kings of Israel and says that they, not He, were to blame for the fall of Jerusalem. If He sets up every king and deposes of all the bad ones, He alone is responsible for all of the evil done by every king who ever lived…

You cannot build a doctrine or base your beliefs on a single verse ripped out of context… That is a deadly error…

This is a war. Kings are ruled and used by Satan in his attempt to overthrow Jehovah God and retain his position as god of this world…

That verse must be compared with the rest of Scripture and its meaning defined by the massive weight of Scripture that opposes the particular weird and strange interpretation that is being forced upon it by Trumpettes, Trumpites, and the other Christianesque peoples of this land…

THE OVERCOMER-IN-CHIEF

Along came an unlikely hero. All of the good, Christianesque people stood up and cheered for the hero who could not win.

Novels are not random, they follow a strict formula. You can buy books on how to write a novel. There are computer programs that let you simply fill in the blanks in order to write a novel. If you are watching a movie, it was written first as a story and it follows very strict guidelines.

If you are watching politics, you will see that same formula displayed, day after day, week after week, and year after year… What you are seeing is theater, scripted in Hell and played out by puppets whose strings are pulled by the Luciferian Elite, whose strings are pulled by demons, whose strings are pulled by Lucifer himself…

For thousands of years, the best stories have all followed the same formula. There is always a hero who starts out downtrodden, persecuted and facing impossible odds. There is always a bad guy who wins big, at least at first. He / she is evil to the core but is living well, comfortably and securely. The bad guy is directly responsible for our hero’s problems. All of the other characters are either for our hero or for the bad guy. If it is a good story, at least one of our hero’s helpers is really a bad guy in disguise… He pretends to help our hero but is secretly working for the bad guy.

As the story progresses, our hero, through hard work and honest endeavor, overcomes the forces of evil. In the end, the spy is outed, and the bad guy gets what is coming to him… he dies, or he goes to prison but he loses big, our hero shines and the reader / viewers stand and applaud with tears running down their faces. For ninety minutes in a movie or for a couple of days with a book, they have lived and believed that which is false… a story made up in the mind of the author and / or the director.

  • Kennedy was a good guy.
  • Johnson was a mistake.
  • Nixon was a good guy who went bad.
  • Ford was sort of good.
  • Carter was a Baptist Sunday School Teacher and bad guy.
  • Reagan was a superhero.
  • H. W. Bush was a good pagan.
  • Clinton was a happy hooker.
  • W. Bush rescued us from Clinton.
  • Obama was the president from Hell.
  • Trump is the oppressed hero who just keeps on knocking out the bad guys… The Overcomer-in-Chief.

They are all related to King John, and they are all related to each other, and they are all related to George Washington, and they are all puppets manipulated by the same Devil.

The people… the good, Christianesque people were oppressed under the evil Obama. A super bad lady named Hillary was all set to replace Obama with the promise of being even worse than he. Along came an unlikely hero. All of the good, Christianesque people stood up and cheered for the hero but he could not win. Night after night after night, the experts lined up to tell us that he could not win. The night of the election, all of the experts agreed that he could not win… but he did win and all the good, Christianites and Christianettes lined up and cheered. The unsaved, ungodly, millionaire televangelists lined up to pronounce him God’s Prince, Cyrus reincarnated and the one destined to save America in her sins so that she could sin some more…

But, as in any good movie, it can’t be that easy… For a year all of the good, Christianesque people sat nervously chewing their fingernails as their hero was beaten down by evil people claiming that he had won because Putin voted for him in Chicago…

And now? Now, he beats up on the bad guys and wins against all odds… Now he is the hero again and all of those evil Democrats and FBI Agents / Hillary Staffers are going to go to jail!!! Stand up and cheer… This is the best moment in the whole movie!!!

And the Good Christianesque people, all of the Christianites and Christianettes are hanging on every word as Satan pulls the strings and dances his puppets across the stage…

What a story! Wow… Lucifer will walk away with all the Oscars this year, and the Church will cheer and clap and cry…

FIGHTING TEMPTATION

Some people just love rules… but Christianity is not about rules… Christianity is all about Jesus…

I REMEMBER FIGHTING LUST.

As a young man, I had a terrible fight with lust and sexual sin. I remember sweating and crying and calling out to God for strength to fight temptation. I even remember screaming at God on occasion…

I remember yielding to temptation and then weeping in agony of soul over my sin…

I remember thinking that it is impossible to obey the commandment… the harder I tried to obey, the more I prayed for strength, the stronger the temptation became…

I know that, while your besetting sin may be different than mine, you can identify with my struggle…

But, now I know. I was right, it is impossible and the harder you try to obey the Law the stronger the temptations grow… That is an accurate observation. That is undeniable truth.

Paul tells us, in 1 Corinthians 15:56, that the Law is the power of sin. In other words, trying to obey the Law makes sin stronger…

In other words, trying to obey the Law makes sin stronger…

However, Scripture gives us the secret to victory!

Those who are led by the Spirit are not under the Law…

When I took my eyes off the Law and fixed them on Jesus, I found freedom from sin for the first time in my life! When I stopped concentrating on the rules and started to follow Jesus, temptations lessened, and I found myself free to obey… The harder I followed after Jesus, the less I fought with lust and sexual sin…

When I began to deny myself… when I took up my cross and started to follow Jesus, the girls who used to tempt me so badly almost disappeared… I just didn’t notice them anymore… My mind was on higher things, bigger things, better things…

It is a secret that will set you free! Jesus has freed you from the Law of sin and death…

It is a truth set in stone. The more you try to obey the law, the stronger the temptation becomes. The closer you get to Jesus as a living, breathing person, your friend, confidant and big brother, the weaker temptation becomes…

Some people just love rules… but Christianity is not about rules… Christianity is all about Jesus.

Let me share something… Jesus does not steal, fornicate or commit adultery. If you follow Jesus, you won’t do those things either. But it isn’t about following the Law, it is about hiding yourself in the one who fulfilled the whole law and died to set you free…

Follow Jesus… Just follow Jesus.

David…
