ON TRUMP, COMEY, AND THE DEVIL David A. Rice

Please remember the Devil…

As you watch James Comey perjure himself, and because his opening statement contradicts his previous testimony to Congress, he will perjure himself, please remember the Devil…

If you see this from a purely human point of view, you will quickly become confused and ensnared. Nothing you will see is real; nothing. Certainly, the players see it as real, and their future lies in the balance. People will win, people will lose and people will be hurt. In that sense, it is real. In a broader sense, it is not.

Let us start from the top and work our way down. Perhaps, placing things in order will help you to understand the twisted plot in this celestial puppet show. Not everything in the movie, THE MATRIX, was real but the premise is correct. What you perceive as reality is not. Your “reality” has been manufactured and sold by some very evil characters. The Bible is real. What you see with your eyes and hear with your ears is not. Most of your core beliefs are false. The sooner you accept that fact, the sooner you will be freed from the deception that engulfs you and in which you are drowning.

Before the beginning, before the time of Genesis 1:1, there was a war in Heaven. Long story but Lucifer, the “Covering Angel” and Heaven’s greatest musician, revolted and talked one third of Heaven’s Angels into joining the Revolution. That war rages on. It will not be complete until the end of the Millennial Reign when Lucifer (or Satan) is cast into the lake of fire. Battles often rage after a war has been decisively won by one side. The war has been won, there is no way for the loser to ever win, but troops on the ground continue to fight and die. Lucifer lost at Calvary, but the battle for the souls of men rages on. The last battle, as far as we are concerned, will be Armageddon. Even after that, at the end of the Millennium, Satan will be loosed to lead one final rebellion. As they used to say, “it ain’t over till it’s over.”

The Age of Reason has robbed you of the ability to perceive spiritual truth. As Westerners, we have learned to think in humanistic terms. Such a world view is not Christian and would have been unintelligible to the people in the Bible days. Paul wrote, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” As Westerners, we have been trained to think only in terms of “flesh and blood.”

2 Kings 6: 17 Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” So the Lord opened the servant’s eyes. He looked and saw that the mountain was covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

18 When the Arameans came against him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Please strike this nation with blindness.” So He struck them with blindness, according to Elisha’s word. 19 Then Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will take you to the man you’re looking for.” And he led them to Samaria. 20 When they entered Samaria, Elisha said, “Lord, open these men’s eyes and let them see.” So the Lord opened their eyes. They looked and discovered they were in Samaria.

This is the world you probably never saw. This is the World that is playing out on your Television today.

Daniel 10:12 “Don’t be afraid, Daniel,” he said to me, “for from the first day that you purposed to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your prayers were heard. I have come because of your prayers. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for 21 days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me after I had been left there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to help you understand what will happen to your people in the last days, for the vision refers to those days.”

Not only do these spiritual beings exist, they are engaged in warfare. Unlike God’s Forces, Lucifer’s Forces are fallen creatures. The Devil’s side tend towards jealousy and infighting. The Enemy does not run a tight ship. There are, we know from both Biblical and extra-biblical sources (Enoch and others) that the world, after Babel, was divided into seventy nations, each under its own Spiritual Prince. These are fallen Principalities and they fight constantly. From such fights emanate human wars. Nations fight nations according to the fights between their Princes. There are now some two hundred nations in the world and each prince has several, for instance, it is probable that the Prince of Babylon controls the Vatican, England, the United States and perhaps others. Saudi Arabia and Iran are both Muslim nations but the Prince of Persia hates the Prince of Saudi Arabia with a purple passion.

These Jealous and evil spirits are now being confronted by Lucifer himself. It is, and has been Lucifer’s goal to unite the world as one, like it was before God divided it at Babel. Some of these Princes are on his side. The Prince of Babylon seems to sense that he will be a winner and that unification will give him even greater power. Smaller and less powerful Princes stand to lose everything. There is a war in the Heavens between those who are for the New World Order and those who are against it.

That war is playing out in Washington DC and on television screens around the world. There are very powerful spirits who do not want the New World Order. Their power over the United States and its people, is considerable. They are on the “Make America Great Again” team. There are other spirits who are equally powerful, who want to see the New World Order win… These spirits feel that they would have more power under such a system. These spirits are behind Comey and the Democratic Party; or so it seems.

There is a good chance that the Spirits behind Trump are pro New World Order and that they are only pretending to want to restore America. Often there are games of deceit played by these powers (they are demonic). People are easily fooled.

These principalities have a great amount of control over fallen men. Some of the Elite are descendants of the Nephilim. The control over these individuals is limitless. These spirits are Puppet Masters, manipulators of men. They use these men in a Puppet Show scripted in Hell. It is part of that show that played out today in the Comey hearings. Both Comey and Trump are puppets but they dance to different masters.

It is possible that Comey’s Puppet Master wants a New World Order and that Trump’s Puppet Master wants to maintain the United States. That could be the source of the conflict. I, however, do not believe that. I believe that both Comey’s and Trump’s Puppet Masters want a New World Order and that Trump’s Puppet Master believes that Trump will rule the world.

If they are on the same side, why the fight? If Democrats and Republicans are all for the New World Order, from whence comes the conflict? Did you ever see the actor playing the bad guy in a movie go out for drinks and dinner with the actor playing the hero? Ah! You are getting the picture now. The humans here may not, and probably do not know that they are puppets. The emotions, the deep-seated beliefs and the fight must seem very real to them. They too are Westerners, steeped in reason and convinced that spiritual powers do not exist. They do not know why they feel the way they do or act the way they do. They have no clue that they are puppets dancing on strings. The Principalities and Powers pulling the strings, have the script…

This fight, is designed by Lucifer, to destabilize and destroy the United States and make way for the New World Order. He must fight God and the Saints and he has to deal with petty demons who often rebel and do things in their own interest. That aside, Scripture tells us that he will win. There will be a New World Order. Babylon (that is us) will burn. Like a phoenix, the New World Order will rise out of the ashes of the United States.

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

What you are witnessing is the end of a war that has been going on since before the beginning. We are in the final days. Lucifer will win and for seven years he will rule…

Then comes Armageddon…

P.S. Christian, you are not a puppet. You are a child of the Living God. You are in Christ and Christ is in you (the Hope of Glory).

David…

 

NEPHILIM, ALIENS, 2012, POPES, ANTICHRISTS, TRIBULATIONS, AND THE END OF THE WORLD; A LIST:

One Hundred Sixty things to study, think and pray about…

1.    I like the “Big Picture.”

  1. Lists of things give me the ability to skim over that which I think I know and that which does not interest me but they spark interest in other areas and prompt me to do my homework and sometimes, serious research. This is such a list. No list can be comprehensive. Feel free to add to this list in the comment section. The purpose of this list is to help you see the Big Picture…

3.   2012

  1. There were some who talked about the world ending in 2012. That was foolishness. Others set dates for the Rapture in that year, something Scripture would strongly advise against. I have come to strongly question the doctrine of the Rapture. I personally believe that God goes through the Great Tribulation with His Saints and that the Day of the Lord and the Rapture are one and the same. I will not argue that here and you are welcome to your personal belief. If there is a Rapture, I am going. The point is that I never believed that the world would end in 2012 nor did I believe the Rapture would occur in that year. Nonetheless, I believed that something would happen that year… something ominous and foreboding. Why did I believe that? Did anything happen in 2012 that changed the world?
  2. Personally, I believe that we crossed the point of no return in 2012. The United States must be viewed as a part of the world and not an island unto itself. It must also be viewed through the lens of Scripture and biblical prophecy. As I examine our current situation and the global situation from that point of view, it seems quite obvious that the end of all things is at hand.
  3. We have a major convergence:
  4. The righteous judgment of an angry God is about to fall on an ungodly and wicked nation.
  5. The New World Order, aka the Kingdom of the Antichrist is rising.
  6. The judgment against the United States will take her out of the picture in world affairs.
  7. The judgment is well deserved and righteous altogether.
  8. The collapse of the United States and Western Civilization is necessary for the rise of the New World Order. There cannot be a One World Government until all the nations of the world, including the United States, become so desperate that they are willing to lower their national flag and raise the flag of the New Order.
  9. That point is approaching rapidly. This is biblical prophecy; God tells us it will happen. These events are absolutely in line with unchangeable signs in the Heavens. It is time. We need to be right with God. The only safe place is where God wants you to be. The only reasonable thing to do is to do exactly what God wants you to do. The Question we must each ask is, “Am I close enough to God to know where He wants me to be and what He wants me to do?”
  10. God works on a different calendar. December 21st 2012 fell on 8 Tevet 5773. The year 5773 started on 1 Tishri or September 17 2012 and ended on 29 Elul or September 4 2013. Let us use that Jewish year for the purposes of our discussion.
  11. The Zohar, written by Jews 700 years ago, claimed that in the Jewish year 5773, God would rain Fire and Hail on Rome and the Antichrist would be revealed.
  12. The Mayan Calendar ended in the Year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Kulkulkan.
  13. The Aztec Calendar ended in the year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Quetzalcoatl.
  14. The Cherokee Indian Calendar ended in 5773 with the return of their “Flying Rattlesnake” god.
  15. The Hindu Kali Yuga Calendar ended in 5773 at the end of the age of the “Male Demon”.
  16. Using math and Astronomy far above my head David Flynn, in his scholarly work CYDONIA, claimed that the Platonic year changed on 8 Tevet 5773 and we, measured by astronomy and not astrology, entered the Age of Aquarius on that day.
  17. Jonathan Edwards tied, the arrival of the Antichrist and the Great Tribulation to 2012 (or 5773)
  18. In 1878, Rev. William J. Reid wrote, “…we are prepared to answer the question, When will the Papal system come to an end? …in the year 2012.” (5773) (Lectures on the revelation. Author: Reid, William J. page 306)
  19. The thousand-year-old Prophecy of St. Malachy predicted that Pope Francis would be the “Last Pope” a man who will usher in the Tribulation and whose reign will end with the coming of the “Terrible Judge”.

TRUMP AS ANTICHRIST AND POPE FRANCIS AS FALSE PROPHET

Two days after Trump lays hands on a crystal ball with King Salman of Saudi Arabia, on the 22nd day of the month, a 22-year-old boy, bearing the name of the Saudi King, Salman, blows himself up and kills 22 people. Despite the fierceness of the blast, just like 9/11, the bombers ID somehow survives… The next day Trump is playing Jew at the Western wall, and the day after that, Trump meets Pope Francis.

Somehow, I smell burning Sulphur.

Let’s talk about Pope Francis:

I believe that the change of the ages happened the end of 2012 and the Tribulation period probably started in September of 2015. They are in full swing now and evil will increase exponentially…

Somehow, Pope Francis and the Vatican are at the center of all this. I know what has been said about an Islamic Antichrist but Rome is the oldest and best established Antichrist system in the world and Islam is the bastard child of Rome.

Two time periods have been of great interest to the whole world, December of 2012 and September of 2015. Everyone had a theory of what would happen during those two time periods. Almost none of those visions came true at the appointed times. Two events that snuck under the radar, for the most part, really happened and they are tied together with an unbreakable bond. These actual events, one tied to December 2012 and the other to September of 2015, should really grab your attention.

First, let us review why the whole world was looking at these dates.

DECEMBER 2012:

God works on a different calendar. December 21st, 2012 fell on 8 Tevet 5773. The year 5773 started on 1 Tishri or September 17, 2012 and ended on 29 Elul or September 4 2013. Let us use that Jewish year for the purposes of our discussion.

  • The Zohar, written by Jews 700 years ago, claimed that in the Jewish year 5773, God would rain Fire and Hail on Rome and the Antichrist would be revealed.
  • The Mayan Calendar ended in the Year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Kulkulkan.
  • The Aztec Calendar ended in the year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Quetzalcoatl.
  • The Cherokee Indian Calendar ended in 5773 with the return of their “Flying Rattlesnake” god.
  • The Hindu Kali Yuga Calendar ended in 5773 at the end of the age of the “Male Demon”.
  • Using math and Astronomy far above my head David Flynn, in his scholarly work CYDONIA, claimed that the Platonic year changed on 8 Tevet 5773 and we, measured by astronomy and not astrology, entered the Age of Aquarius on that day.
  • Jonathan Edwards tied, the arrival of the Antichrist and the Great Tribulation to 2012 (or 5773)
  • In 1878, Rev. William J. Reid wrote, “…we are prepared to answer the question, When will the Papal system come to an end? …in the year 2012.” (5773) (Lectures on the revelation. Author: Reid, William J. page 306)
  • The thousand-year-old Prophecy of St. Malachy predicted that Pope Francis would be the “Last Pope” a man who will usher in the Tribulation and whose reign will end with the coming of the “Terrible Judge”.

So, what happened in that time period?

We know that right before Christmas, in the same time frame as the December 21st, 2012 end of the Mayan Calendar; there was a terrible Coup in the Vatican that forced the resignation of Benedict XVI. While the resignation was not announced until February of 2013 and did not take effect until the end of that month, the deed was done in the year 5773.

The “Last Pope” was installed on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, In the Jewish Year, 5773.

SEPTEMBER 2015

All eyes were on September of 2015 because of the end of the Shemitah and the four Blood Moons. That was more recent and I do not think it necessary to go into detail. I am sure that you remember all the hype. We are still under the effects of the Shemitah and the current Market Woes and economic downturn are undeniably tied to the end of the Shemitah. Nothing earth shattering happened on that particular day however, as many had expected. The night of the last Blood Moon, many were expecting something to happen that would shake the world. When nothing of that magnitude happened, many were disappointed.

So, did nothing happen at that time? No, something very prophetic happened. It was quiet. Many Christians picked up on it at the instant it happened but most never saw it at all.

Jesus, in John 5:43, said, “I have come in My Father’s name, yet you don’t accept Me. If someone else comes IN HIS OWN NAME, you will accept him.”

“IN HIS OWN NAME”

On September 28th, 2015, the largest group of Heads of State, ever assembled together in one place, in the history of the world, was at the United Nations in New York.

Pope Francis stood before that group and the world. In his opening remarks, the Pontiff said, “Thank you for your kind words. Once again, following a tradition by which I feel honored, the Secretary General of the United Nations has invited the Pope to address this distinguished assembly of nations. IN MY OWN NAME…”

“IN MY OWN NAME…”

Who is it who has rejected the Christian façade of Catholicism and returned to its pagan roots?

Who is it that seeks to cause all religions to reject the doctrines that divide them?

Who is it who seeks to unite the whole world under the pagan religion of Sumer, Babylon, Egypt and Rome?

POPE FRANCIS!

2 Thessalonians 2

The Man of Lawlessness

1 Now concerning the

COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST and OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM:

We ask you, brothers, 2 not to be easily upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has come.

3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way.

For THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS

THE APOSTASY COMES FIRST and

THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED,

the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.

CONCERNING:

  • THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
  • OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM

DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU

THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS

THE APOSTASY COMES FIRST

THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED

THE APOSTASY IS ALL AROUND US. If you are saved, you cannot help but see it.

THE FALSE PROPHET WAS REVELED on September 28, 2015 at the United Nations.

The Beast is yet to come… Nimrod will rise. Could that be Trump?

UNDERSTANDING THE RELIGION OF POPE FRANCIS AND DONALD TRUMP

With Pope Francis making statements that shock most Catholics and appall Protestants and Evangelicals, many are confused. How could a Christian say that the Biblical account of creation is a lie, that evolution is correct and that the Creator God is not all powerful and was not capable of creating a fully functioning universe? Yet the Pope has said all those things. The truth is that the Pope is not a Christian and has never been a Christian. This article will explain the religion that Pope Francis shares with the world’s most powerful and influential people.

In his book, THE LABYRINTH, Mark Flynn writes:

“There is a religious institution whose members are the most devout and serious of any faith on earth. Those who are a part of this institution unquestionably believe in a god that directs their activities and they look to this deity with the ultimate hope of gaining his favor. They, unlike many of the people ascribed to the popular religions of today, have no doubt that their god lives and interacts with them. They see the favor their god bestows upon them. The riches and power gained through their piety actively demonstrates the reality of their god’s existence. The precepts of their secretive religion are contra to that of the Judeo-Christian religion that values above all, love for their fellow man. They consider the people outside of their group inferior creatures, unworthy of their god, but necessary for manipulation towards the completion of their final objective. Through devotion, submission to the will of their god, and dedication to his secretive plan, they believe that they will achieve immortality and live in a coming golden age where their god will appear on earth and rule them in a new paradise of his design.”1

The “Gospel” of the Illuminati is the ancient GNOSTIC Mysticism. The real Gospel is Good News… the Gnostic story, not so much… this is from a Gnostic site.

“Adam and Eve

“Just as Adam and Eve are regarded as central characters in the Christian creation myth, they are equally as important in that of the Gnostics. As mentioned in previous articles, the creation of the world according to Gnostic tradition is an account of the world created not by the True God, but by a false god. As Adam and Eve were created and placed in the Garden of Eden in Genesis, the same has been done in Gnostic scripture.

“However, the demiurge is responsible for the placement of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The demiurge has created the fleshly bodies to entrap the spirits of Adam and Eve. Adam is placed under a spell of ignorance and put to sleep by the false god. Eve is placed next to him, and she commands Adam to awaken. When Adam sees Eve, he believes that she is his creator.

“The demiurge wanted to keep Adam and Eve ignorant; forever worshiping him. The Gnostics believe that the demiurge was posing as the false god, thus keeping Adam and Eve under his spell of ignorance. As long as Adam and Eve believed that he was the only god, they would worship him forever.

“The serpent is regarded as an evil figure in traditional Christian stories, but to the Gnostics, the serpent is the hero! The Gnostic text teaches that as the demiurge tells Adam and Eve that they may help themselves to anything the Garden, they are to stay away from the Tree of Knowledge. As Adam and Eve listen to the serpent, their eyes are opened, and the spell of ignorance is broken forever. Because they chose to listen to the serpent, Adam and Eve no longer worship the demiurge, but recognize that there is the True God, and he was not the creator of the evil, imperfect, material world.

“Adam and Eve gave birth to two children, Seth and Norea. The descendants of Seth regard themselves as Sethians, those that have been blessed with the gnosis.”2

Eve, according to the satanic version, became a completely new creature after she ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil. Because she recreated herself by an act of her own will, she is seen as virgin born. All of the ancient goddesses and the Catholic, Mary the Mother of God, are virgin born. They represent the self-created Eve. There is always a serpent god who represents Lucifer, unfairly judged and punished… once beautiful, now damaged goods. There is always a bull or a cow god who represents Jehovah. The serpent god, in every ancient pagan religion, kills the bull or the cow. Adam is strangely missing except as represented in the common man. The unholy trinity is a self-created goddess, a serpent god and a bull… all of mythology, renaming the characters a thousand times, revolves around these three.

The symbolism is everywhere. The Mary of Catholicism who is highly esteemed by Muslims, mentioned in the Koran more than thirty times and the only woman mentioned in the Koran, is the pagan representation of the self-created (virgin born) Eve in her fallen state. She was known as Isis who impregnated herself with a prosthetic phallus that she herself made for her brother/husband Osiris, giving birth to the god Horus. She was worshiped in ancient days as the Queen of Heaven and the Mother of God. She is mentioned in Jeremiah 44.  Then, look at a bullfight in Spain or Mexico. The brightly clothed Matador (killer) represents Lucifer. The bull represents the much larger, bully God who tried to keep Adam and Eve as ignorant slaves and unfairly judged Lucifer. The much smaller, Lucifer is smarter and through superior knowledge and cunning, kills the bull. The snake always wins in the end.

All of the ancient, pagan religions and the Gnostic or secret knowledge of the secret societies… including Freemasonry hold that Apollo / Nimrod is going to return and rule the earth in a New World Order. Scripture supports that idea and the idea that the Nephilim return. Something supernatural is about to happen. This is the religion of the Illuminati.

Did you know that this is the Gnostic, secret knowledge of the Master Mason? This is the belief system that led Joseph Smith to found the Mormon Church and this is the religious system behind Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is the foundation behind the Satanist churches and most major cults. This is the base doctrine of the Church of Rome and the founding belief behind Islam. This is the central foundation of all the ancient pagan religions. This teaching drove the first organized religion in Sumer, it is the foundation of Egyptian, Greek and Roman religious cults.

Masons below the thirtieth degree do not know this. Only the leadership in the Mormon Church is aware… the College of Cardinals and the Pope are certainly aware but your average Parish Priest hasn’t got a clue. Those in the Watchtower group in New York are fully aware but your average Jehovah’s Witnesses has no idea. This is a religion of the elite. This is knowledge reserved for the few… the select.  All of these groups are preparing the common man for the coming of a glorious New World Order led by a supernatural, messianic figure.

In these last days, Israel’s Kabalistic Rabbis are speaking of two Mashiachs, Mashiach Ben Yosef and Mashiach Ben David. Having never been able to reconcile the prophecies of a conquering Messiah with the prophecies of a suffering and dying Messiah, they have declared that there will be two messiahs, Ben David, the conquering Messiah and Ben Yosef, the suffering and dying Messiah. Of course, it would be difficult to reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ if they were to accept that one individual could fulfill both roles.

The prophetic Rabbis believe that both Messiahs are human and that having fulfilled their roles, they will die as all men die. They say that Mashiach Ben Yosef will die in the Battle with Magog but Mashiach Ben David will show up, kill the bad guys and raise Ben Yosef from the dead. Ben David will then go on to purify Jerusalem and Israel, rebuilding the Temple and restoring the sacrifice.

The strange thing is how closely that follows Christian eschatology which speaks of an Antichrist who dies and a False Prophet who raises him from the dead. One of the heads of the “Beast” has a fatal wound” which is healed. When the people see it, they will marvel.

Revelation 13:3 One of his heads appeared to be fatally wounded, but his fatal wound was healed. The whole earth was amazed and followed the beast.

The prophecies which spoke to the first coming of the Messiah were intentionally occluded by God. Even the Disciples who lived and walked with Jesus failed to understand. Even after the resurrection and having seen Jesus walk through walls, they did not understand. It was not until the Holy Spirit fell on them at Pentecost that their eyes were opened and they finally understood. Jesus said that those who are not born of the Spirit cannot even see the Kingdom of God. That holds true today as Jew and Gentile alike fail to understand the first coming of the Messiah.

Those prophecies were purposely made clear enough that, in hindsight, we could clearly see that they pointed to Jesus but not so clear that the powers and principalities could figure it out in advance and defeat God’s plan.

1 Corinthians 2:8 None of the rulers of this age knew this wisdom, for if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

In a like manner, the prophecies concerning the end times, the tribulation, the Rapture of the Church and the Second coming are occluded or hidden. After the fact, we will look back, with 20/20 hindsight, and say, “Yes, of course, this is clearly what God has prophesied.” Looking into the future, it is not so clear and we argue over what we think that it means and what will happen. This is not to cause confusion in the Church, this is to keep the Devil and his minions from figuring it out and coming up with a battle plan to counter it. One thing we know for certain, times are going to get rough and we need to be right with God now.

Biblical ignorance is at an all-time high. People who think they are Christian worship a Jesus of their own imagination and will bust Hell wide open when they die. Their Jesus does not even vaguely resemble the Jesus of the Bible, although the demon they worship is glad to use his Name. Even among the saved, Biblical ignorance leaves most open to deception. The coming deception will be great and many who claim to follow Jesus will be deceived.

If we assume that the two Messiahs Israel is looking for are indeed the biblical Antichrist and False Prophet, we can easily see that the Antichrist will be Jewish, or at least successfully pretend to be Jewish. He will defeat the enemies of Israel in the Gog, Magog war. He will be a hero and all Israel will accept him as their Messiah. He will be a hero to the Dominionist and Seven Mountain Cults. Their Prophets will declare him as Messiah and follow the False Prophet in worshiping him. If you doubt me, remember Trump.

Exactly how or when this is going to happen is not for us to know. What we do know is that those who are deceived and do follow the Antichrist and the false prophet will pay for their mistake in the Lake of Fire, which is the second death.

If you expect the Antichrist to be evil, cool, and calculating, like the one in the movies, you will love the real Antichrist and follow after the False Prophet with all your heart. The Antichrist is going to look just like the Jesus those in the Emergent Church have imagined. The False Prophet is going to look like a Hyper-Grace version of Elijah… even calling down fire from Heaven.

The Antichrist will be a Military Hero. He will defeat Israel’s enemies and build the third Temple on the Temple Mount. He will slaughter Muslims by the millions and leave Mecca a nuclear wasteland. He will level the Dome of the Rock and bulldoze the Al-Aqsa Mosque off the side of the mountain. The Dominionist Cult will just know that they have found their Man! Antichrist will be everything the Hyper-Grace Gurus have always wanted Jesus to be, kind, forgiving and nonjudgmental. The only thing he will require is that you pledge your allegiance to him and take his mark.

Israel’s two Messiahs are at the door. There will be a death, a resurrection, and an incarnation. Fire will fall from Heaven. Miracles will abound…

The closer you are to the real Jesus, the Jesus of the Bible, and the more you know of God’s Word, the less likely you are to be deceived and the more likely you are to make Heaven your eternal home.

If you believed the Dominionist prophecies about Trump, you are really going to be impressed with the prophecies proclaiming Antichrist to be God’s only hope for the world and the False Prophet to be Elijah in the flesh…

Get in the Word and get right with God now. This very well could be your last chance to avoid deception and the Lake of Fire.

David…

THE SINLESS PERFECTION HERESY

Let us not continue to live a sinful lifestyle but let us not sin by pretending to be perfect.

I just ran into a couple of people, on Facebook, who are preaching the doctrine of Sinless Perfection and trying to tell people that they, themselves have attained to that state and no longer sin.

1 John 1: 10 If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

If you view sinless perfection as a real and reachable goal, you will chase after it for the rest of your life and never attain to that goal. This will leave you frustrated and feeling condemned. This can lead to suicide or worse.

If you lie about it and pretend to others that you have attained to sinless perfection, God is not amused and Scripture says that you are calling God a liar. That is not a place that I would like to find myself, and I would strongly suggest that you do not go there.

Those who preach sinless perfection, pull a number of verses out of context and try to convince you that both Paul and Jesus have commanded you to be sinless. You can find verses that appear to say so. For instance:

Matthew 5:48 “Be Ye Perfect as your Father in Heaven is Perfect.”

However, as in every verse they pull out, they make gross errors in understanding the meaning of the text. In Greek, the word translated “perfect” is teleios. (a) complete in all its parts, (b) full grown, of full age, (c) specially of the completeness of Christian character.

Teleious is an adjective meaning, “consummated goal” – mature (consummated) from going through the necessary stages to reach the end-goal, i.e. developed into a consummating completion by fulfilling the necessary process (spiritual journey).

[This root (tel-) means “reaching the end (aim).” It is well-illustrated with the old pirate’s telescope, unfolding (extending out) one stage at a time to function at full-strength (capacity effectiveness).] It means “reaching the end (aim).”

There is nothing in the definitions of the word “teleios,” that could ever be construed to mean “sinless.”

Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to “Go and sin no more.” The sinless perfection doctrine would understand him to mean, “Go and be sinless.” That was not Jesus’ intention. Jesus was more than aware that she, an unsaved Jew, still under the Law, could not stop sinning altogether. What he was saying was that she should get out of that relationship and not live an adulterous lifestyle. She could not be sinless, but she very well could stop sleeping around with other women’s husbands.

Paul speaks of being “Dead to the Law.” In this sense, we are perfect. Dead men do not break the Law. It is true that when we are Born Again, our sins are washed away. God sees us through the Blood of Jesus and He sees us as the perfection or righteousness of God. We are sinless if we are in Christ. However, we live in a sinful, fallen body and in a sinful, fallen world. We are still subject to temptation and we still sin. This sin, messes with our relationship with Christ. We must repent. When we do, He forgives us and makes us right again.

Those who preach sinless perfection are divided into three groups:

  1. Those who believe in it but admit they have not yet attained to it.
  2. Those who lie about it (and call God a liar).
  3. Those who turn to Gnosticism for an answer.

Looking at them:

  1. The first group is frustrated, condemned and suicidal.
  2. The second group is going to Hell in a handbasket.
  3. The third group is, of all people, most to be pitied.

I will leave the first two groups lie. Let’s talk about the third group. This group will tell you not only that they believe in sinless perfection but that they are indeed, sinless. When you examine their lives, you find drunks, drug addicts, wife beaters and sodomites, all of whom are telling you that they are “sinless.”

“How can that be?” you ask. Good question.

Gnosticism is a deep subject and far too deep to cover here. Let us limit our conversation to the issue of how a rank, habitual, unrepentant sinner uses Gnosticism to proclaim himself “sinless.” Gnosticism predates Christianity but it infected Christianity from day one. Paul fought the Gnostics, day and night. The one Gnostic belief that applies here is this:

The Body and the Soul may be separated, one from the other. It is possible for a sinless soul to dwell in a sinful body.

In other words, through prayer and meditation I can develop a soul that is perfect before God. My body is getting drunk, whoring around, cheating on my wife and robbing my neighbor but my soul is sinless. My Body will die and go to the grave because it is evil. My soul will go to God because it is perfect.

There is a sense in which this is true. As a Christian, my body will die or, if Jesus comes first, it will be changed. My soul has been washed in the Blood and made perfect. Based, not on my own works but on the Grace of God, my soul will go to be with God. Later, my body will be resurrected, changed and reunited with my soul.

However, my soul and my body cannot be separated while I live. When my body sins, my soul sins. When my soul sins, my body follows. My soul is not, in fact, sinless in practice. If my body commits adultery, it is usually following my soul, where the act first took place. This calls for repentance.

I cannot live in sin and claim that I am sinless because only my body is sinning. This is foolishness of the first order.

Interestingly, the Bible speaks of three salvations:

  1. We have been saved.
  2. We are being saved.
  3. We shall be saved.

We were saved the day that we accepted Christ. By the Grace of God, we left the road to Hell and got on the path to Heaven.

We are now being saved. Salvation is a process. Being freed from sin and changed into the likeness of Christ is a lifelong process. We are born again as spiritual babies. After years of Prayer, Bible reading, Christian fellowship and discipleship, we find that we have grown and matured a lot. However, the closer we get to God, the brighter the light. The brighter the light, the easier it is to see our own sin and failings. Baby Christians compare themselves to other Christians and feel pretty good. Mature Christians compare themselves to Jesus Christ and see themselves as wretched sinners. This is why Paul wrote, at the very end of his ministry, that he was the “Chief of Sinners.” Paul was not comparing himself to other Christians but to Christ. In that light, the great Apostle could only see himself as a sinner, having never attained to the likeness of Christ.

On the day that we die, or on the day Christ returns, whichever comes first, we will be saved. We will, at long last, be freed from all sin and all temptation and we will in fact and practice, have become the righteousness of God.

John’s short thesis is an amazing piece of Scripture; he covers two heresies in one paragraph.

1 John 1:5 Now this is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him. 6 If we say, “We have fellowship with Him,” yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

A FAITH THAT DOES NOT CHANGE YOU, HAS NOT SAVED YOU!

Those who claim that Grace has given them a license to sin, are not saved. Period. When you are Born Again, you do not become perfect, but you do change directions. If you are a drunk, you may not stop drinking but you agree with God that drunkenness is a sin and you start the fight to free yourself from alcohol. You may still fall to temptation and get drunk when a friend stops by with a bottle, but you no longer hang out in bars five nights a week. If you fall and get drunk, you feel conviction, you know it was wrong, you ask God to forgive you and help you beat the temptation to get drunk. If you say you are saved but still get drunk five nights a week and you feel no remorse, no sorrow, no conviction and you go on your way, insisting that the Blood of Jesus has cleansed you from all sin, you are a liar, and the truth is not in you.

NEVER CALL GOD A LAR!

On the other hand, sin is a strange thing. There are things that I did without a thought when I was a baby Christian… things that I cannot do anymore. It is a strange thing, as a Christian, to wake up one day, under conviction that something you have done freely, as a Christian, for twenty years, is a sin. Sometimes, just when you are starting to feel really holy and righteous, God suddenly convicts you that something you thought was okay, is not okay with him. He let you do it while He was working on your grosser sins. Now that they are conquered, there are, you discover, some finer points that God wants to work on. Just when you think that you are about perfect, God stands you up next to Jesus and starts comparing the two of you. That is a very uncomfortable process.

Years ago, in an old fashioned, country Church of God, I ran into two very self-righteous old biddies who claimed to have attained to sinless perfection… They were “Totally Sanctified.” They wore clothes from head to toe. Only a little of their face showed. Even their hands were hidden in gloves. Their hair, never cut but very gray, was neatly stacked in a “Pentecostal Bun” and hidden under a scarf prayed for by Oral Roberts and never washed. Not a hint of makeup or jewelry could be seen and no perfume hid their body odor. The Black, King James Bibles they carried, seemed to weigh them down. They were, however, the meanest backbiters and the most terrible gossips I have ever met in my life. They would stand and pray things like, “Lord, please help Brother Smith who I saw coming out of a motel with a woman, last Thursday Afternoon…” Mean women… really mean, but “perfect,” as they would happily brag.

Let us not continue to live a sinful lifestyle but let us not sin by pretending to be perfect.

David…

THE CHRISTIAN AND THE LAW

I could care less who goes to church on what day, or what they eat…

Ephesians 2: 11 So then, remember that at one time you were Gentiles in the flesh—called “the uncircumcised” by those called “the circumcised,” which is done in the flesh by human hands. 12 At that time you were without the Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.

To whom was the Law given? Was the Law of Moses given to the Amorites or the Hittites? No, the Law was given to the sons of Abraham. We were, “Gentiles in the flesh… excluded from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.”

We were never under the Law.

The only way for a Gentile Christian to come under the Law is to voluntarily step out from under grace and intentionally submit to the Law.

Galatians 5:4 You who are trying to be justified by the law are alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace.

Jewish Christians have been rescued from the Law. Gentile Christians never were under the Law.

To refuse grace and place yourself in bondage, under the Law, is to insult the cross of Jesus Christ!

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

It is a very simple statement:

“You are not under the law.”

  • It is simple English and it is translated from a very simple, straightforward statement in the Greek.
  • There is no question about what the words mean.
  • There are no alternate “possible translations” that might possibly give reason to believe that those words do not mean what they say.
  • A third grader could tell you what that statement means.
  • If you were in this country on a diplomatic visa, and they arrested you, you could rightly tell the judge that you were not under that law. They might deport you but they could not imprison you. The Laws of the United States cannot be applied to those here with diplomatic visas.
  • Possession of a Bible carries the death penalty in North Korea. That does not frighten me. I am not under the Laws of North Korea and I walk freely with my Bible in hand.

No one misunderstands that verse but millions reject that verse.

  • They reject that verse because they believe that they are special because obeying a couple of those laws has made them special.
  • If that verse is true, going to church on the Sabbath has no merit and abstaining from pork earns no Celestial Brownie Points.
  • If that verse is true, those who abstain from pork and go to church on Saturday are no better than those who eat pork and go to church on Sunday.
  • That idea is unacceptable, and so they reject plain Scripture and submit to a law that holds no real power over them.
  • They trade grace for a ministry of condemnation and death.

It is very, very difficult to let go of legalism. To trade in the opportunity to earn your own righteousness and the sense of self-satisfaction you get from that, for a theology that says, “Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe,” is almost impossible. It literally destroys the ego. It hurts like Hell…

We are not under the Law.:

  • We are in Jesus.
  • Jesus told us to Love God and to love our neighbor.
  • That I am glad to do.
  • If you love God and your neighbor,
  • you will not have idols
  • or dishonor your parents
  • or murder
  • or steal
  • or commit adultery
  • or covet.

At the same time, Christ becomes your Sabbath Rest and you trade in the Sabbath Day for a 24/7 relationship. You give thanks for pork and lobster and shellfish and you consecrate them through prayer and thanksgiving.

Romans 6:14 says, “For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.”

Either that is true or God is a liar. Your call.

Galatians 5:18 says, “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.”

Either that is true or God is a liar. Your Call.

Galatians 5:4 says, “You who are trying to be justified by the law are alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace.”

Either that is true or God is a liar. Your Call.

2 Corinthians 3 says. “7 But if the MINISTRY OF DEATH, IN LETTERS ENGRAVED ON STONES, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, 8 how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? 9 For if THE MINISTRY OF CONDEMNATION has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory.”

Either the Ten Commandments are a ministry of death and condemnation, or God is a liar. Your call.

I had a man who claims to be “Torah Observant” comment: 

“you seem to confuse the Torrah (sic) with the Talmud. Where in the Torrah (sic) does it say I must not touch a chair that my wife has sat on during her period.”

This is what drives me nuts… people who self-identify as “Torah Observant” and / or “Law Keepers” generally have no idea whatsoever what the Torah teaches…

Leviticus 15:19 “‘When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening.

20 “‘Anything she lies on during her period will be unclean, and anything she sits on will be unclean. 21

>>>Anyone who touches her bed will be unclean; they must wash their clothes and bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening. 22

>>>Anyone who touches anything she sits on will be unclean; they must wash their clothes and bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening. 23

>>>Whether it is the bed or anything she was sitting on, when anyone touches it, they will be unclean till evening.

When I posted that Scripture, there was dead silence. He never replied.

I am not fighting the Law.

  • The Law is forever.
  • The Laws of Kazakhstan are very real, they just do not apply.
  • The Law of Moses is very real, it just does not apply.
  • “We are NOT under the Law but under Grace.”
  • I repeat, “We are NOT under the Law but under Grace.”
  • What does the Scripture say?
  • Romans 6:15 What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace?
  • Absolutely not!”

If we are not under the law, how do we define sin?

  • By the Law of Christ.
  • What is the Law of Christ?
  • Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and body and your neighbor as yourself.
  • Does Adultery violate that Law?
  • Yes.
  • How about stealing, murder, gossip or sexual perversion?
  • Yes, absolutely!
  • How about eating bacon or going to church on Sunday?
  • No, no way!
  • I can love God and my neighbor while I eat Bacon before church on Sunday.
  • How about letting a gentile enter my house (The Torah forbids it)
  • No, I love my gentile neighbor too. (Not to mention that I am a gentile.)
  • How about going to church after I bury my dead dog?
  • The Torah forbids that.
  • No, that has nothing to do with loving God or my neighbor.
  • How about sleeping with my wife during her time of the month?
  • The same Torah that forbids pork, tells me I am not even to touch the chair she sat in.
  • Nope… That rule has nothing to do with loving God or my neighbor.

What gets me is the hypocrisy of the “Law Keepers” and the “Torah Observant.”

  • The same Torah that forbids pork, forbids women to go to the House of God, during their period or for seven days following.
  • That same Torah forbids a man who has touched even a chair his wife sat in during that time of month to enter a house of worship.
  • It forbids a man who had an ejaculation the night before to go to church.
  • It forbids anyone who touches a dead animal to go to church.
  • It forbids you to light any kind of fire or cook on the Sabbath.

All of these rules and hundreds more are found in the Torah, but the “Law Keepers” and the “Torah Observant” rip the dietary laws out of that Torah, insist that they are binding on Christians but that you are free to ignore every other rule in the book.

  • That is the dictionary definition of hypocrisy.
  • They insist that the Sabbath is mandatory.
  • The same Torah that says not to eat pork, contains more than one hundred laws which define exactly what one cannot do and what one must do in order to “Keep the Sabbath Holy”.
  • The Same Torah that says not to eat pork tells you how to keep the Sabbath.
  • The food laws are binding on Christians but the Sabbath laws in the same book are not?
  • What?
  • Sounds hypocritical to me…

John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Some have been looking at this verse in a discussion over whether or not we are “gods” (little g). I see something else in the verse…

Jesus refers to it as “Your Law” as opposed to “My Law” or “God’s Law…”

Jesus did not take ownership of the Law nor did He ascribe ownership to God. In the New Testament, it is called:
• The Law
• Your Law
• The Law of the Jews
• The Law of Moses
It is not called “God’s Law” and Jesus did not refer to it as “My Law.”

When Jesus spoke of his commandments, He specified:
• Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and body
• Love your neighbor as yourself

2 Corinthians 3:7-11 calls the Ten Commandments a “Ministry of condemnation” and a “Ministry of death.”

2 Corinthians 3:Now if the ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stones, came with glory, so that the Israelites were not able to look directly at Moses’ face because of the glory from his face—a fading glory— how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness overflows with even more glory. 10 In fact, what had been glorious is not glorious now by comparison because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was fading away was glorious, what endures will be even more glorious.

Speaking of the Law of Christ, Galatians 6:2 says:

“Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

There is world of difference between carrying another’s burden in order to fulfill the Law of Christ and abstaining from pork and going to church on the Sabbath is some sort of vain and half-hearted attempt to fulfill the Law of Moses

You may try to earn all the Celestial Brownie Points you can by going to church on Saturday and not eating pork. I am satisfied with the righteousness imparted to me in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

In Christ, I have become the very righteousness of God. I couldn’t beat that if I never ate Pork and went to Sabbath church a thousand weeks in a row…

It is those who insist that they are more holy than I because they go to church on Saturday, and that I am a reprobate sinner for going to church on Sunday, that I address here. Those who insist that if I would only go to church on Saturday and stop eating pork, I too could earn Celestial Brownie Points and one day, I might even attain to the higher ground on which they stand.

I could care less who goes to church on what day, or what they eat…

IS GOD IN CONTROL?

“God will be lawful in everything. Lucifer is the god of this world and God will allow him to run it…”

“But God is in control!” I cannot tell you how many times I have seen that comment under posts describing war, chaos and End-Times Prophecy. It seems, that for some, the idea that God is in control provides comfort in ignorance. Many seem to believe that they do not have to think or study because, “God is in Control.”

That brings two questions to mind:

  1. If that is true, is it an excuse for ignorance?
  2. Is it True? Is God really in control?

Let us briefly consider the first question. Scripture tells us what to watch for and Jesus, repeatedly commanded us to watch. I believe that to choose ignorance is a sin. If Scripture tells us what to watch for and Jesus commands us to watch, not to watch is to live in sin and rebellion, daily disobeying the direct command of Jesus Christ. Let us assume, for a moment, that God really is in total control, micromanaging every detail of current events. Does that fact excuse those who refuse to watch? I do not think so. “God is in control,” is not an excuse for willful ignorance.

What about the second question, is God really in total control of everything? We need to look at that question from two different perspectives:

  1. Eternal
  2. Day to day

From an eternal perspective, the answer is certainly yes. God is outside of time. He sees the end from the beginning. When time comes to an end, everything will have turned out exactly as He planned in the eternal past, before He created time. God will have his way. Every prophecy of the Book will be fulfilled. In that sense, God is in control.

I am going to propose however, that most of what happens in the world, on a daily basis, is not under God’s control but rather, under control of Lucifer, who is, according to the Bible, “the god of this world.” On a local basis, some things are the result of demonic activity but most things that happen are a result of the sinful actions of sinful people.

Adam was the first “god of this world.” God gave Adam dominion over the world and everything in it. When Adam sinned, that title, and all the authority that goes with it, was given to the Nachash, Satan, the Devil, Lucifer or whatever you would call him. When Jesus came, the Devil took him to a high place and showed him all the Kingdoms of the earth. Satan offered those kingdoms, with all the riches and power associated with them, to Jesus, if Jesus would only bow down and worship him. Jesus, we know, refused the offer. What He did not do was to challenge the Devil’s legal authority or ability to carry through on his promise. Jesus accepted Lucifer as the rightful god of this world.

Matthew 4: 8 Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”

If God was in control, in the way that many assume, Jesus would have called Satan’s bluff. Jesus would have laughed at the Devil… “My Father controls everything… You can’t do that!” But, for the moment, Satan does have that authority and he is, very much, in control.

God will be lawful in everything. Lucifer is the god of this world and God will allow him to run it. God wins in the end. God knows what the Devil is going to do and He has told us about it in his Word. We know, not only that God will win, but all the major events on the road to Armageddon. We are watching those events take place before our very eyes.

The thing that escapes those who use “God is in control” as an answer to every problem, is that Lucifer wins. The Devil gives power to the Beast and the Beast defeats the Church. We lose! On an earthly plain, we are the losers.

Daniel 7:21 “I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them…”

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

Of course, we go to Heaven and return with Jesus Christ when He defeats the forces of evil in the valley of Megiddo…

If God was in control, the Beast could not make war against the Saints or overcome them. Everything is not going to work out well. One Christian is being martyred for his faith every fifteen minutes… Today, all day long. The United States will be destroyed. American and British Christians are going to suffer, just like the saints in the Middle East are suffering today… God is not going to stop that. There is no exemption. “every tribe, people, language, and nation” means “every tribe, people, language, and nation.”

“God is in control” is not even true. God will win. God knows. God permits. But God is not in control… the Devil is in control. This is his world.

“God is in control” is not an excuse for ignorance, nor is it a bed under which you can hide. You need to learn what to watch for. You need to obey the command of your Savior and “Watch.” You need to prepare, both spiritually and physically for the chaos, the turmoil and the pain that is coming. You must be prepared to die.

You cannot hide but you can watch, you can be aware, you can prepare and you can make Heaven your home.

SPEAKING TRUTH IN LOVE

The fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive…

Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ.

My wife is the most loving, kind and considerate Christian I know. Jesus loved Cathy enough to save her and He loves you enough to save you. Cathy will love you into the Kingdom. Everybody loves Cathy.

We are opposites. I am mean, ugly, hardheaded and doctrinally correct. I will speak the truth as I find it in Scripture and as the Spirit convicts, but nobody feels the love.

It isn’t that I don’t love people. I love them enough to point out the truth, even when I know that the truth will greatly offend them and that they will reject that truth. I want to just be loving. I want everybody to love me. I want people around me to feel the love of Jesus, like it was just oozing out of my bones. You do not know how desperately I desire that, but these are desperate times and the truth keeps getting in the way.

The truth, however ugly and counter-culture it may be, can be spoken in love. I know that because the Bible tells me to do so. God would not tell me to speak the truth in love, if it were not possible to do so. God just wouldn’t do that.

I need to practice being kind and loving. I can take a hint from Jesus… “Go and sin no more… you brood of vipers!” How do I ever find that balance?

1 Timothy 5:20 Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning. (Speaking the truth in love.)

Luke 17:3a Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. For this reason, reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 2:15 These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. (Speaking the truth in love.)

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. (Speaking the truth in love.)

“Speaking the truth in love.” Let us look at that passage in context:

Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift. For it says:

When He ascended on high,
He took prisoners into captivity;
He gave gifts to people.

But what does “He ascended” mean except that He descended to the lower parts of the earth? 10 The One who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill[ all things.11 And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, 12 for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness. 14 Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit. 15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

We are to grow up. This is about growing up and maturing to the point that we are no longer blown about by “every wind of doctrine.” We are to grow into unity but that unity can only be found in Christ and the truth of Scripture. Seeking unity through compromise will never work. Speaking lies, because they are more “loving” than the truth, will never work.

The truth is, that the truth is ugly and offensive to those who reject it. There is a deep and inherent offense in the message of the Cross. Those who have been trained in lies, disguised as truth, revolt at the real truth, rejecting it off hand. I did! When God started showing me how things that I had learned in church, things taught to me as “Gospel Truth,” violated his Word, I rebelled. “Not my Pastor! Not my church! They would never teach me anything wrong!” I cried, I screamed at God, I told people that they were crazy! So why am I surprised that others have the same reaction? Sometimes you just have to get angry and fight through things.

However, the fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive. Error must be confronted but it is easier to accept the truth from those who smile and take your interest and needs to heart. I must learn to take on other people’s burdens. I must seek to understand where they are and where they come from. I must identify with them as brothers and sisters in the Lord. I must meet their needs. Only then, will I have the right to speak truth into their lives.

Please pray for me, that in however it may be possible, I will learn to speak the truth in love. I am not even certain what that means but I am aware that I need to learn.
