NOTHING CAN SAVE US NOW!

Everybody knows war is coming, but some still hide from the facts, spouting off meaningless phrases anchored in wishful thinking and hopeless optimism…

I am sitting here, in South-West Florida, and watching a massive line of thunderstorms approaching. It is getting dark, the wind that was blowing here a few minutes ago, has stopped. There is the distant peal of thunder and I can see black clouds reaching up more than forty thousand feet. I can look at the radar and by watching its size and its advance, I can predict, with one hundred percent accuracy, that it is going to rain. At the moment, the wind is still and not a drop has fallen… It is the calm before the storm.

IT IS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

As it is, literally at the moment, in the natural world outside my window, so it is in the Spirit World. The Angels are at war and it is about to break out and devastate the world. Threats are building, the signs are in the Heavens. Everybody knows war is coming, but some still hide from the facts, spouting off meaningless phrases anchored in wishful thinking and hopeless optimism. As certainly as the rain that now beats on my window was coming, war is now upon us.

AS CERTAINLY AS THE RAIN THAT NOW BEATS ON MY WINDOW WAS COMING, WAR IS NOW UPON US.

Is the threat to the West Coast real or will the nukes, launched from a submarine, suddenly turn New York and Washington DC into heaps of ashes? I do not know but as certainly as I knew that the rain was coming, I know that war is here. Gabriel who announced the birth of a Savior, has been replaced by Michael, the leader of the Army of Heaven. The warrior has replaced the messenger in the sign of the Son of Man. War is in the Heavens.

WAR IS IN THE HEAVENS.

This war will be short but violent. I would be surprised if this war lasts longer than seven months. This war will be nuclear. All the “Fire and Fury” that Trump promised Kim Jong Un, will fall but it will not be limited. It will fall on every nation in the world, including, and perhaps most of all, the United States. When it is over, 2.5 Billion people will be dead and every nation on earth will lower their flag and replace it with the putrid, pale blue of the United Nations…

EVERY NATION ON EARTH WILL LOWER THEIR FLAG AND REPLACE IT WITH THE PUTRID, PALE BLUE OF THE UNITED NATIONS…

There are so many threats and the Media jerks us around from one to the other. Last week it was North Korea, this week it is White People, recently it was Black People and before that, Muslims and Russians, Mexicans and Immigrants. Sometimes the housing market is about to implode and sometimes it is the Dollar. Some weeks the enemy is Petroleum, other weeks it is Global Warming, or if the weather is cold, Climate Change, or a New Ice Age. The question remains, whom shall we fear?

THE QUESTION REMAINS, WHOM SHALL WE FEAR?

“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28

All Hell is about to break loose. The truth is that no one can pull the trigger until God gives his permission. What is about to happen, will happen to the United States. It will be accomplished by people even more evil than ourselves. Even though our destruction and death is accomplished by demonic forces working in conjunction with evil people and nations, it will be the Hand of God, falling in judgment.

IT WILL BE THE HAND OF GOD, FALLING IN JUDGMENT.

If we were repentant and if we were a righteous people, God would protect us. For two-hundred years, God protected the United States on account of his Church and a godly people. Today, we are perhaps the most evil nation on earth and the American Church is in full blown Apostasy. God’s Hedge of Protection was lifted on 9/11/2001 and the Devil is now free to do his worst.

GOD’S HEDGE OF PROTECTION WAS LIFTED ON 9/11/2001 AND THE DEVIL IS NOW FREE TO DO HIS WORST.

When the trigger is pulled, I believe we will see nuclear weapons falling on a land that is too divided to respond or defend itself. That will set lose a disastrous civil war among the survivors in a land with no working Government to stay the violence… It is not one of the threats but all of the threats that will soon hit us. God’s Word speaks of the climate going crazy. If North Korea nukes us, Russia and China will join in with them. The internal danger will be from Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Wimpy Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Muslims and immigrants… Every group full of hate and desperate for power and dominion. We will fall in a single hour. They will call those who die in that hour, “The Blessed!”

WE WILL FALL IN A SINGLE HOUR. THEY WILL CALL THOSE WHO DIE IN THAT HOUR, “THE BLESSED!”

Revelation 18:
Then I heard another voice from heaven:

Come out of her, My people,
so that you will not share in her sins
or receive any of her plagues.
For her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
Pay her back the way she also paid,
and double it according to her works.
In the cup in which she mixed,
mix a double portion for her.
As much as she glorified herself and lived luxuriously,
give her that much torment and grief,
for she says in her heart,
“I sit as a queen;
I am not a widow,
and I will never see grief.”
For this reason her plagues will come in one day—
death and grief and famine.
She will be burned up with fire,
because the Lord God who judges her is mighty.

Perhaps the rain now pounding on my window is a sign of things soon to come…

BABYLON IS DAMNED (AND YOU WILL SUFFER LOSS)

The tension created must have caused tens of thousands of borderline White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis to fully commit to the cause…

In the book, THE LAST PRESIDENT, BY Ingersoll Lockwood, the Nation reaches a point just like we see today. In the book, the nation is divided into three groups, all full of hate, and none willing to compromise. Things get worse and worse. There is civil unrest and pandemonium in the streets. While Congress is in what would be its last session, one side or the other fires an artillery shell that takes off part of the Capitol Dome. The president shows up and tries to address congress but is ruled “Out of Order” and shut up… The Congress then votes, and by an overwhelming majority, dissolves the Union.

The author’s preceding book on the Adventures of Little Baron Trump was notable because of the name of the hero and the eerie likeness of the boy’s personality to that of our current President. The fact that it took place in Russia and the Little Baron’s friends were in the Russian government, was even stranger.  When we add to that, the idea that the author’s next book was called THE LAST PRESIDENT, it becomes strange indeed.

I sort of discounted the book, THE LAST PRESIDENT, itself, with the exception of the Title. It took place in the late 1800s, the end of the republic happened on New Year’s Eve, 1900, as the new century was dawning and the sides and issues seemed strange to our day. The President was even a Democrat… How could he have gotten things so wrong?

I was wrong!

Looking at the situation in Charlottesville, Virginia, I see the same sides with much the same issues and I see a Nation divided into groups, each full of hate, and none willing to compromise. Just like in the book, the same divisions that we see on the street are echoed in the Halls of Congress. Congress itself is divided into hate groups and no group is willing to compromise. We, like the Republic in the book, are a nation divided.

All that is needed for the situation in the book to play out today is for those who would destroy us to fan the flames of the fires that are already burning. I saw them at work this morning as the reporters on NBC pushed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, on why the President would not call out the White Supremacists and the Neo Nazis as the bad guys in the riots.

What played out, before my eyes, could have been a recruiting film for the Neo-Nazis and the White Supremacists. The obvious answer, and the one the psychotic reporters were fishing for, was that the Wimp Whites and the Black Lives Matter groups were as much to blame as any other group. That answer would have been in violation of the Laws of Doublespeak and Political Correctness. The thing is that the tension created must have caused tens of thousands of borderline White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis to fully commit to the cause.

The tension created must have caused tens of thousands of borderline White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis to fully commit to the cause.

As I see this play out, I am more and more convinced that Ingersoll Lockwood, had much more help from the powers of Hell than he could have ever hoped for. The timing of this is from God. The Devil cannot change God’s clock or manipulate the signs in the heavens. The fact is that he has been planning what he would do when the time arrived, for centuries on end and he has been announcing his plans through his followers.

You must understand that the riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, is the result of a plan that was hatched in the boardrooms of Hell, a very long time ago. When you put all of these things together… The books, the plans, the current events and the signs in the Heavens, you come to realize that Babylon is damned. The end is here.

Your life is wrapped up in Babylon. Even the most spiritual of you live, work, eat, commute and live your lives within the Babylonian System. When Babylon falls, you will suffer loss. I will suffer loss… It cannot be helped. Now is the time to strengthen your relationship with God. Now is the time to wean yourself from the system. You may not be able to walk away in the flesh but you must make the separation in your heart and in your mind. You must decide to believe that your life does not depend on your job, or your income, or your house, or electricity. Or your car, or the Supermarket on the corner. God almighty has used those things to care and provide for you but when they are all gone, God will still be there. God is not dependent on those things, and He can care for you when they are all gone.

God is not dependent on those things, and He can care for you when they are all gone.

The old song says, “If Heaven’s not my home, then Lord, what will I do?” Now is the time to assure yourself that Heaven, not Babylon, is your home… The stronger your ties to Babylon, the greater the devastation and loss you are about to suffer.

The stronger your ties to Babylon, the greater the devastation and loss you are about to suffer.

God told Jeremiah that the “Feel Good Prophets” were lying to the people. The People chose to believe the Lying Prophets but Babylon came anyway. As Jeremiah walked among the dead and the dying, he wept bitter tears. He looked upon the people of God, destroyed by the Devil’s Babylon and he cried out:

Your prophets saw visions for you
that were empty and deceptive;
they did not reveal your guilt
and so restore your fortunes.
They saw oracles for you
that were empty and misleading. (Lamentations 2:14)

Dear, dear friends, your Prophets are lying to you, death and destruction are coming. You need to be aware of your guilt and you need to cry out to God for cleansing. Jeremiah survived the destruction. Daniel and the Three Hebrew Boys, survived the destruction. They all suffered great loss, but they survived to continue serving God. If you get right with God now, perhaps He will save you alive to continue serving him. Whatever happens, remember that, “He who stands firm to the end, will be saved.”

“He who stands firm to the end, will be saved.”

ON BARON TRUMP’S MARVELOUS UNDERGROUND JOURNEY and THE LAST PRESIDENT, BY INGERSOLL LOCKWOOD

“Nay, Ivan,” said I kindly, “I know no such word as cruelty although I do confess that right seems harsh at times, but thou wert born to serve and I to command…”

I became intrigued when I saw the first write-ups on these books. When Fox News did a story on them, I bought them on Kindle. I have now read both books. Let me share with you what I have learned.

Even Skimming “THE LAST PRESIDENT”, you cannot miss the note on the title page that reads,

“THIS IS A WORK OF MEMETIC OCCULTISM”

(This note may have been added to the current edition)

MEMETICS is defined as, “a study of information based on an analogy with Darwinian evolution. Proponents describe memetics as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer.”

Thus, Memetic Occultism is mixing Darwinian theory with Occultic Practice as a way of predicting the future. I am glad that I saw that before I started reading “Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey.” Had I not seen that, I might have passed off the Baron Trump book as a wild fairy tale… simply children’s literature…

BARON TRUMP’S MARVELOUS UNDERGROUND JOURNEY is passed off as children’s literature but it would be a hard sell today. It is the first-person account of a magical journey taken by a boy I would imagine to be in about the sixth grade. However, although the story is age appropriate for sixth graders, today’s High School Graduates would have a difficult time reading and comprehending it… This is due, I am certain, to the intentional collapse of the American Education System… Any Sixth Grader, in 1890 could have read this…

Secondly, Darwinian Theory, Pagan Religion and Occultic Works, form the basis for the entire story. I do not know how much of that would have been absorbed by a child, but to an adult who has been forewarned, it is only too obvious.

Thirdly, and lastly, Little Barron Trump has the egocentric personality that only a Trump could muster. This little aristocratic brat is Donald Trump on steroids… Everything he does and says echoes Donald Trump. This boy is everything I could picture in Donald Trump as a sixth-grader… He has the attitude down. You would honestly think that the author went to elementary school with the President! I tell you the truth!

THE LAST PRESIDENT:

The remarkable thing about the book called “1900 or THE LAST PRESIDENT,” is that it immediately follows the book on the adventures of Baron Trump. The only standout might be the mention of the name Pence, the name of our Vice-President, as a member of the last President’s Cabinet… but then, as Secretary of Agriculture. The man is only listed and takes no part in the story.

President Bryan is a young Populist, a Democrat and probably a closet communist. This is really a short story that centers on the politics and promises of the 1890s. We get to look at what the President and the congress do, but we get little to no insight into their persons or their lives. The book uses the aforementioned Memetic Occultism to predict that the Republic would collapse in the year 1900. Evidently, there was a good deal of speculation that the world, or at least the United States would collapse in the year 1900… something that most of us can relate to a century later.

It is pretty obvious that Mr. Lockwood was a wealthy Republican. As an Occultist, he firmly believed in the “Divine Right” of Kings. The heroes in his books are snobbish aristocrats and wealthy businessman. The bad guys in THE LAST PRESIDENT, are Democrats and socialists… it is they who bring an end to the Republic in his story. The Last President, it turns out, is much more like Obama than Donald Trump.

So, what stands out here?

Ingersoll Lockwood:

  • Was an Occultist.
  • Believed in Darwinian Evolution
  • Combined Occultism and Evolution in an attempt to tell the future.
  • Failed Miserably, as the Republic did not die in 1900.
  • Taught Magic and Evolution to children through his Children’s Books.
  • Was an Aristocrat and a Republican.
  • Heard from Lucifer in ways he never understood.
  • Telegraphed the Devil’s plans more than a hundred years into the future…

Little Barron Trump:

  • Was the perfect picture of Donald Trump as a Middle Schooler.
  • Was self-absorbed, Ego-centric, wealthy and aristocratic.
  • Had a huge connection with Russia and Russians, having many connections among the rich and powerful there. Much of the story takes place in Russia.

Favorite quote: Let me set this up. Little Baron Trump, was going into dangerous territory in Northern Russia. His driver had signed on for a hundred miles and has gone that far. Little Lord Trump has told him that he will pay him double if he continues but will have him beaten by the magistrates and sent home with no money if he refuses… The poor fellow is complaining but little Trump silences him and says,

“Nay, Ivan,” said I kindly, “I know no such word as cruelty although I do confess that right seems harsh at times, but thou wert born to serve and I to command. Providence hath made thee poor and me rich. Do thy duty, and thou wilt find me just and considerate. Disobey me, and thou wilt find that this short arm may be stretched from Ilitch to Petersburg.” (The man lived in Ilitch and the Czar and other friends of Trump lived in Petersburg.)

I stand amazed at the likeness of attitude in Little Barron Trump and Donald Trump. Little Baron Trump’s fascination with and connections in Russia are amazing, considering the present-day connections between the President and Russia.

To follow that up with a book called “THE LAST PRESIDENT,” seems outside the realm of coincidence. It seems like the Devil was using this man who actively sought his knowledge to send a message to us… I take out of this that Donald Trump being President in this last decade of human history is not chance but the fulfillment of a plan hatched in Hell and known in Heaven a very long time ago…

I think that strong and biblically sound Christians should read these books. I am convinced that Satan shared his future plans with this man through his occultic works… Weak Christians may lose their faith reading these books… If you don’t know who you are in Jesus and / or you are not grounded in the Word of God… DO NOT READ THESE BOOKS!

A BRUTALLY HONEST RANT

Thus, Antichrist will be dead and resurrected. He will be Satan and he will be the son of Satan, incarnate in the body of a man…

We are out of time. Does that statement grab you? It is the truth… we are the last generation. God is giving us so many signs and the Elect can see it and feel it.

I am absolutely convinced that September 23rd marks the beginning of the Seven-Year Tribulation that will lead up to the return of Christ. I am aware that I could be wrong but I remain absolutely convinced.

I just watched Alex Jones clip concerning the soon coming assassination of Donald Trump. He played the clip from Rodney Howard Brown where he speaks of his conversation with an unnamed Senator who spoke openly of that assassination and called it unavoidable. He showed those Televangelists surrounding Trump. Trump has a look of bewilderment on his face…

I posted of Facebook, earlier today,

  • Satan often calls himself “Jesus”; he appears “as an angel of light.”
  • Jesus said, “Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me.”
  • Satan said, “If you will bow down to me, I will give you all these things.”
  • That is a good standard by which to judge…
  • When you hear people preaching, you must ask yourself…
  • “Which Jesus is he/she/it preaching?”

Pardon me, but I think that Rodney Howard Brown and those Televangelists who prayed for Trump, preach another Jesus…

For many reasons, reasons, reasons which I have written on both here and on Facebook, I believe that this assassination is going to be used to provide Apollyon with a body (Research that). If, as I believe it will, the Tribulation starts with the sign of the Son of Man, things are going to get supernatural and they are going to get supernatural fast.

This is a rant, not a theological thesis, but all the reasons for what I am saying have been discussed, at length on this blog and a million other places… Do your homework…

Scripture speaks to Satan being cast to the earth and of Apollyon rising. Apollyon is Nimrod, is Gilgamesh, is Osiris/Horus, is Apollo, is Abaddon… One guy with many names. He was the bad guy at the fall of Babel.

His Spirit/soul has been confined in Tartarus since the death of his body. He is, by legend, three quarters fallen angel and one quarter human. He is Nephilim. He has no body but he will rule the world. He is of the seven and the eighth world ruler, the first and the last. Satan’s Antichrist.

I believe that he will be much like Jesus, in a bad way. Satan only copies and twists… he will do nothing new. Antichrist will be the first and the last (world ruler). He will appear to be dead and resurrected. As Jesus has visible wounds, so the Antichrist will have visible wounds, mortal wounds.

This is what I believe is being set up now with the well planned and publicized assassination of Trump.

The Capitol Dome is the “Womb of Isis” (Where Horus is born as Osiris reincarnated) The Washington Monument is the Phallus of Osiris… There is a pagan goddess mounted on top of the dome and the inside is covered with The Apotheosis of Washington, where he is shown, as God, on a throne, surrounded by pagan gods and goddesses. This has been planned for centuries.

When Trump is assassinated, his body will lie in state, in the Womb of Isis, for three days. If Satan can pull it off, and I believe that this is his time, Apollyon will escape, without a body. Trump will be in Hell, his body in the womb of Isis.

You can read, on this blog, all the reasons that I believe that Pope Francis is the False Prophet. I believe he will come for Trump’s funeral. This has nothing to do with whether they like each other or not…

What I believe will happen then is that the Pontiff will pray and Apollyon will enter the dead body of Trump and animate it. There, in the Womb of Isis, Antichrist will be born… and the whole world will marvel and follow after the Beast.

I would fully expect a Marian Apparition (Isis) to appear at the time and declare to the world,

“This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Thus, Antichrist will be dead and resurrected. He will be Satan and he will be the son of Satan, incarnate in the body of a man…

All this will happen at the sign of the Son of Man. Alex Jones, Rodney Howard Brown, and every preacher of that other Jesus, will pronounce this as a true miracle from God and demand that Christians everywhere follow Trump and Pope Francis…

“Obviously,” they will shout, “this is none other than Jesus Christ returned to lead the world…” Millions and millions of “Christians” will believe them and swear their allegiance.

I can see this as if it happened yesterday and was on the News all day today…

Could this just be my imagination? Of course. We will soon see.

Even if I am wrong, wouldn’t this be a great time to get right with Jesus?

David…

THREE SINNERS

This is a fictional tale of three sinners. If one of them sounds a lot like you, it might not be coincidence.

Our first sinner is named Wiley. That might not be his real name but its what he goes by, that’s all I know. When Wiley was twenty-three, he wanted to be an actor. He was homeless, lived in a box behind the downtown Walmart in LA. He did odd jobs and sold a little weed on the side to make a living. Wiley had accepted Jesus when he was eight and his parents were Christian but Batman was Wiley’s real hero.

Wiley had been invited to a happy Church a few months before… They had a good music group, the girls were pretty and their Dance Costumes skin tight… The Preacher just kept telling Wiley that Jesus loved him just the way he was… Wiley wanted to go to Heaven and the preacher assured him that Jesus loved everybody. Nobody ever said anything but Wiley figured out that if he sang real loud and put money in the plate, he would go to Heaven when he died.

Our Second sinner is named Calvin. Calvin accepted Jesus when he was eight and attended church with his parents. Calvin always did what he was told, graduated from High School with a 3.5 GPA and joined the Army. Calvin loved the Army. It was so very simple, they told you what to do and you did it. Rules seemed to be very important in the Army and so Calvin obtained a book on military law. While his buddies were out drinking, Calvin was reading his very own copy of the UCMJ… the Law.

At twenty-three, Calvin was back from the Army and starting college. With the GI Bill and help from his Dad, Calvin would not even have to work. He might even be able to do a Bachelor’s Degree in three years. In four years in the Army, Calvin had only been in trouble one time. When the Sergeant had told him to go into the Gas Chamber and breath Tear Gas, Calvin had told him that that violated Section 4.3, Subsection b of the UCMJ and was therefore, an illegal order. The Captain had disagreed and Calvin spent thirty days confined to base… By the time he got out, even Calvin had put that behind him.

Harvey was, I suppose, the worst sinner of all. At 23, Harvey was just getting out of prison. He was barely turned 19 when a seven-year-old kid from down the street made fun of the way he walked. Harvey was a Christian from a Christian family. Harvey was mostly a good kid but something in his bones wasn’t quite right… Harvey did walk funny. When the kid teased him like that, Harvey forgot how big he was. For just a minute, Harvey was an angry little boy. He had backhanded that boy so hard that if shattered his jaw.

Now 23, Harvey had served three years in the State Penitentiary. He was a Convicted Felon, Assault and Battery on a Child Under Twelve Years of Age. It was in prison that Harvey had developed the deep and lasting relationship with Jesus. A relationship he would enjoy for the rest of his life. The day he got out of prison, the Local Paper put him on the front page, just to remind the community what kind of man he was. When his Dad pulled the car into the driveway, there were a hundred reporters and curious people in his yard. He opened the door to a huge roar as unintelligible questions were thrown at him. Harvey motioned them to be quiet, and assuming he would make a statement they could make fun of, they quieted down. “Jesus loves me, this I know.” Is all Harvey said before pushing his way through the crowd and entering the house.

FAST FORWARD:

Twenty years later, two out of three  of our heroes are married; all three have kids. Although they live in three different cities, from coast to coast and although they do not know each other, our three gentlemen have faced identical situations. (I can make that happen, it’s my story.)

Wiley woke up with a bit of a hangover and started towards the studio. Not a famous actor, Wiley made a living as the instantly recognized face of the Termite in the perpetual ads of LA’s major Pest Control company, and he still sold a little weed on the side to help feed the kids… Leaving his live in girl of twenty years sleep, he headed out for breakfast at McDonalds. Entering the door, a pretty young lady smiled and asked him to join her after he got his food. Thirty minutes later, Wiley had called in sick at work and headed off with the young lady for some weed and a little sex.

Six months later, the mother of Wiley’s children confronted him. Slapping her on the back-side, Whiley said, “You ain’t tied down, move out if you want… Jesus paid it all and I’m just having a little fun…”

Calvin’s wife was starting early menopause and had been very cranky lately. She didn’t let him get out the door before she started yelling about something. In no mood for breakfast at home, Calvin thought to stop at McDonalds for breakfast on his way to the University where he served as Disciplinary Dean. It was his job to enforce the rules and he had ruined the life and career of more than one young person in the fulfillment of his duties. When Calvin hit the door at McDonalds, a young lady smiled and invited him to join her. Adultery was wrong; Calvin knew the Ten Commandments by heart and had sworn to obey them all. This might be a little dangerous but it didn’t really break any commandments and it would be nice to talk with a lady who wasn’t screaming at him…

Six months later, Calvin’s wife confronted him. “You can’t leave me!” he cried. “I’m the Dean at a Christian University and a Deacon at the Church, you will ruin me! You don’t know how hard I tried not to sin, I cried real tears and I begged God to give me the strength to overcome. God didn’t do anything, He just let me fall into sin! I can’t believe it, He knows how hard I have tried to serve him and how much I have suffered working here instead of Harvard… Now you are going to leave me and embarrass me in front of everybody… How can you do that to me?”

Harvey slipped on his boots and kissed his wife goodbye. She had been more than a little cranky lately but he kissed her anyway. He would let her sleep and catch a bite at McDonalds on his way to the welding shop. It wasn’t much of a job but it paid the bills. It was hard for a Child Abuser to find work anywhere and his boss had kept him on for these twenty years anyway. As he came up to Main Street, something caught in his spirit. He didn’t know how to explain it but he had learned that this was the voice of God. Turning right instead of left, he pulled into the parking lot at Denny’s. As he entered the restaurant, he saw his Pastor with several of the men from the church. They invited him over and the Pastor even put his breakfast on the church credit card. Harvey kept trying to figure out what that was all about… nothing important had happened at that impromptu meeting… Why was he there?

Six months later, Harvey’s marriage was stronger than ever. Harvey would never know about the pretty young woman who sat waiting for him at McDonalds…

ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED

OSAS is not really a doctrine as such, it is a Denominational Distinctive… a teaching taught with the intended end of convincing church members and congregants that their church is better than the church down the street…

Someone, yesterday, asked me if I would write on the subject of once saved, always saved… Okay, here goes…

Once Saved, Always Saved, is a cute and memorable handle for a Denominational Distinctive… We can reduce that to its initials and we will do so here… We will write OSAS because it is shorter and my fingers are tired.

OSAS is not really a doctrine as such, it is a Denominational Distinctive… a teaching taught with the intended end of convincing church members and congregants that their church is better than the church down the street and discouraging them from visiting the other churches in town… We, after all, have a “doctrine” that they do not believe! That clearly makes us better!!

Never mind that the other churches are telling their members that they are much better than that other church because they teach OSAS and we know that that is a false doctrine and it will send them to Hell but we will get to go to Heaven because we are smart enough not to believe that!!!!

The truth is that there are a good number of verses that, ripped out of context and presented in a list, would seem to say that you cannot lose your Salvation…

There are also many verses that, ripped out of context and presented in a list, would seem to say that you can lose your salvation…

So, if you are a Baptist Pastor, you make your special OSAS Bible Verse list and you teach it to your people, assuring them that once they shake the Pastor’s hand and repeat that little canned prayer, they are on their way to Heaven and God himself can’t keep them out.

If, on the other hand, you are a Methodist Pastor or Church of God or any other denomination in competition with the Baptists down the street, you make up your list of all the verses that speak of losing your salvation and you teach that to your people…

But wait! What if someone finds those “OTHER” verses in their Bible and starts asking questions?

Not to fear, over the last couple of hundred years, people in your denomination, have thought much on the subject and they have come up with canned little answers that explain why none of those verses on the other Pastor’s list really mean what they say… You can just look in your books or maybe even use Google and (WOW!) There are all the answers you need to confuse your poor congregant and keep him in his pew…

Do you want to know the real, honest God’s truth on the matter?????

Your Salvation is not nearly so secure as that OSAS Pastor wants you to believe and no it does not really become a done deal when you walk an aisle, shake the preacher’s hand and repeat that little prayer… not even if you say “AMEN!” real loud and get dunked in front of everybody… A faith that does not change you, will not save you!

On the other hand, Your Salvation is a whole lot more secure than that Old Fashioned Pentecostal Preacher told you… You do not have to be afraid that you might be in an accident, say a bad word and die before you can repent!!! You were not saved because you stopped sinning and you are not lost every time you sin…That is stupid on steroids, as I like to say!!!!!

Your salvation depends on grace and faith… Are you still believing? Has your belief changed your life? Are you still under grace? Are you led by the Spirit? Good news, you will go to Heaven when you die!!!!!

We have to get past all those stupid things our pastors told us just to keep us going to their church and keep us out of the one down the street…

Read the Word for yourself and THINK and PRAY… It helps, really!

David…
