Christian Discord


My heart sinks every time I read an article online that discusses Bible prophecy or tries to warn the world about the end times, and then the comment section is filled with hypocritical “christians” who speak out of ignorance to challenge these claims. It’s almost as if “christians” are at war with one another and have thrown love – the most important commandment of Jesus – out the window.

What happened to referencing the Bible? What happened to taking heed to warnings? People will only hear exactly what they want to hear. Their ears are not open to the truth, their ears are open to words that comfort them and reassure them of themselves. They refuse to hear anything that might make them take a step back, look at themselves, and see the areas that need fixing, because that doesn’t feel very nice. They feel attacked, and feel the need to silence the person trying to warn them and help them.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

But as always, the word of God has predicted everything that was to come. The verse above is playing out right before our eyes day after day. “..they will not endure sound doctrine”… Why do you think doctrine is “endured” and not just “heard”? Because sound doctrine hurts. It shows you your flaws. It tells you exactly what God has in store for the future.

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

shutterstock_196707311-627x376It asks you to repent and turn to Jesus and leave your sins for the sake of your eternal future. It tells you to step out of the comfort of your sinful desires and lifestyle, and many people cannot “endure” that pain. The word of God is the twoedged sword of truth.

Coming back to Bible prophecy, everything that is meant to happen is written crystal clear in the New Testament. Jesus literally told of the signs to look out for the fast approach of the end times.

Someone points out these signs of the fast approaching end times, and immediately they get attacked by  fellow “christians” on the forums.

Accusations range anywhere from “You’re judging people, that’s not Christian” to “Who are you to say you know about the end times? Only God knows that”..The ignorance is painful. Sometimes the people arguing are ones that have never even read the book of Revelations. Some people claim that everything about the antichrist and the mark of the beast is metaphorical, which is the worst blasphemy I ever heard (and probably the kind of thing the devil would like for people to believe so as to keep them unaware and unprepared).

When in doubt, reference the unchanging word of God. God gave this to us as a guideline for discerning what is true and what is not.

God has no grey areas. You either believe in the word of God 100%, or you don’t. The Bible is not a bag of trail mix for you to pick out the parts you want and refuse to acknowledge the existence of the others.

God bless.

“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” (1 John 4:6)

 

Ruling on Gay Marriage – Where do we Stand?


As a fiery Christian teenager, I write this with utmost disappointment and concern for our generation regarding the new ruling in favor of homosexual marriages. Now before you deny me by calling me a “bigot” or a person with no “love and acceptance”, let me tell you exactly where I stand on this issue.

Jesus Christ taught us to love every single person on earth, EVEN our enemies, and that is exactly what I practice, as does any true Christian out there. However, loving the individual person does not mean we have to love the sin they are indulged in.

I love (or at least try my best to love) everyone I meet, pray for ever sinner and love them and hope they will turn to God soon. Liars, thieves, even murderers and adulterers deserve a second chance and the grace of God. But does this mean I love the actions they do? A big NO to that. If I love a murderer and want to bring them back to God, that doesn’t mean I tell them what they’re doing is right. I don’t support the fatal actions of them.

Now to the subject of gay marriage, which in itself should never even be called “marriage”. Why should we Christians not support this unholy practice? Let’s go to the Bible; read with me these verses if you will: 

“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6)

There is a REASON God made man and woman as they were. He created two genders, and claiming to be anything outside of that or going against the will of God when He created marriage between the two is just unholy.

 

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22) 

 

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13) 

These verses pretty much make it plain and clear that God considers lusting against one’s own gender an abomination and definitely a violation of His original design of desire He placed in mankind.

” Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 1:7) 

This is STRANGE FLESH!!!! Now keep in mind I am not hating upon anyone, but simply stating the truth about this issue, as stated in the Holy Bible. If you think homosexuality is a recent thing, well think again. This was a problem all the way from Biblical times.

You may read in Genesis, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. The people there were so wicked that they didn’t even want to spare the two heavenly angels who came to the house of Lot to warn his family.

4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.” (Genesis 19:4-7) 

Now anyone who has read the Bible knows clearly what the result of these wicked actions was. God absolutely hates people making a mockery of the sacred, divine relation of marriage that He gifted to us. Marriage is something so beautiful and holy. The best of it is yet to come, when the Bridegroom, the Son of God comes to gather His holy bride, the Church, and sweep her away in the rapture!! ♥

Sodom and Gomorrha was destroyed with fire and brimstone. I hope that pray that doesn’t happen to any other place on earth, but day after day we hear of different societies accepting this as something normal, and it breaks my heart to see the old and traditional values of marriage being destroyed and twisted to the eyes of the coming generations.

Oh, by the way, the fire and brimstone that God rained down from heaven all the way back in those times, has left the place so desolate, that even today, not a single blade of grass grows there. Don’t believe me? Take a look at these modern day pictures of the place!! A Christian archaeologist named Ron Wyatt was led by God to find the areas of Sodom and Gomorrah, and what he found was astounding!!!

Pieces of sulfur were found hidden inside some brimstone :

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here are pictures of the actual (what was once) cities of Sodom and Gomorrah:

Not a single sign of life anywhere! It was quite an amazingly scary story – no, part of history- of the wrath of God, and one that we can only hope will not happen again.

Like I said, I love everyone of you out there, whether or not you are homosexual, whether or not you support it, whether or not you are a sinner or a saint, because that is what Jesus Christ did – He loved every kind of people. But when people are blindly turning against the living God, it is our duty to try to make you see the truth, and the truth here is that God’s will is for one man and one woman to marry, and anything outside of that is unnatural and unholy. It’s what is written in the Bible, and it is what I support, as will any Bible-believing Christian.

There have been studies conducted on whether or not homosexuality is something you are born with, and they have all proven that it is something of choice. There is no “gene” that makes you inclined like that. If you do, however, feel such temptation, if you are a person who thinks you have no control over something like that, I would like to ask you now to ask God to help you come out of it (of course, only if you want to do so..) Search on Youtube, you will be able to find several testimonies of people who have come out of this with the help of Jesus Christ.

Pastors, advise your churches to hold onto God and His morality. Parents, teach your children the righteous path and help them make the right choices in the middle of all this.

We used to say “the end time is near”. It’s time to scratch that and start saying “The end times ARE here!” Things are changing at a rapid pace. Sin is quickly becoming the accepted norm. Believing in the Bible is becoming “foolishness” and “extremism”.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20) 

Let us unite in prayer and repent from our own sins so that we may find peace in God, and let us look to the skies and be constantly watching for His return!!

Praise the Lord!! Return soon!!

 

 

What if the rapture happens TODAY?


Greetings dear readers. As I said in my earlier post, I believe there is a deeper meaning to why Jesus said that we must turn and become like these little children in order to enter heaven.

In John chapter 3, verse 3:

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”

In order to see the kingdom of God, you must be born again. Being born again, not by flesh, but by SPIRIT. In the same chapter, verse 5-7, Jesus explains it:

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Could Jesus have been making a connection to this requirement to enter heaven when He said that we must become like the little children? To tell us that we must become born again, meaning we must leave our earthly lives by being baptized in the water as well as in the Spirit? I believe so.  Being born again means we no longer are our older selves. When we are baptized, our immersion into the water signifies our death with Jesus Christ, and the act of bringing us back out of the water signifies our resurrection with Christ into new life: ETERNAL life:

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
(Romans chapter 6, verse 4)

We are becoming new lives, my friends, like little children!

So only those who are born again are walking with Christ into new life. Only those people will be allowed entrance into the gates of heaven.

Therefore I would strongly suggest you consider being born again if you haven’t already. Why?

Because you really don’t have a lot of time left, my dear friends. I know for a fact that there are some people out there who want to believe and be born again, but they feel no need to do so immediately. They think they have time to make a decision. Well today, I’m here to tell you, my dear friends, that you DO NOT have time to make a decision.

The earth is changing at a fast pace, preparing itself for the end times written of in the Bible. The signs and wonders that the Bible foretold would happen right before the coming of Christ are happening EVERYWHERE! Open your eyes, people!

See the truth! Do not let yourselves be deceived by false promises of happiness and lasting wealth and bliss. The bliss offered by this world is not everlasting, and will die away when the time comes for the King of Kings to return, and that time is not far away anymore like we used to think!

Read Luke Chapter 21, verse 7 onwards:

7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

One of the signs of the coming end times is that many people will rise calling themselves Christ. Now we tend to think of just people who think they are Jesus Christ when we read this. But is that the only thing this applies to? Let’s see: if you look at the old English meaning of Christ, it was derived from the Greek word “christos” which literally means  “anointed”. Click here to view the link.

So any person who calls themselves the anointed person from god, or in other words, people who call themselves “gods” in order to lead people could be deceiving you. Many such people will rise everywhere around the world, and will do everything in their power to change people’s minds and make them turn away from the living God. Many will actually believe that these people are from God and will blindly follow them.

We must guard ourselves from this, my friends. There’s a difference between when people say they are the servants of God and perform miracles in the name of Christ, and when people say they are the appointed gods on earth. Be careful, there are deceivers everywhere. You can definitely tell if it is a man of God from whether or not he follows the commandments of God and maintains a righteous life, and does miracles in the name of Jesus Christ, and preaches the message of repentance and salvation.

Even some people who do these things in the name of Christ could be deceiving you, because Christ said many will come “in my name”. The devil is good at imitating the miracles of God and making people think it is the real thing. This should bring to your minds how we read of Moses’ time when the magicians of pharaoh cast down their rods just like Aaron did, and they turned to serpents just like Aaron’s rod did.

I am telling you this to warn you of two things: One, the coming of the living Son of God is near. It is imminent. I will take you deeper into this matter in my next post. Two, there will be many, MANY people out there seeking to deceive you with false promises and miracles performed from the power of the devil. Beware of them, and keep yourselves in constant contact with God. Pray to Him constantly, asking Him for guidance when you do not know what to do.

If you are not yet saved, I tell you once again, there is little time left. This might be your chance to repent and finally come to the living God. Jesus died on the cross for you and me and everyone on this planet. Take advantage of the sacrifice that God did for you, and become a child of God so that you too may enter heaven when the time comes, instead of having to go through the roughest times here on earth.

God bless you, and may the peace of Christ be with you till next time we meet!
