Guest Writer Charles Novak-“What's up with Jesus ?”

What's up with Jesus ?”

A Writing By: Charles Novak




Today's society, as with all people reacting as a whole are not intelligent, but with the individual we see rationality and clear thinking. It's hard to believe that we as Americans come from a continent that was founded by Christians and theologians, yes theologians, our four fathers as they are spoke of in the history books tell us that they were theologians.

Christopher Columbus estimated the size of the Atlantic Ocean partially from reading his Bible, that is what brought him to find this country. As the decades pass, our Christian world is but a mere shadow of what it once was; and most Americans would rather show doubt or have bold straight faced denial of The Son Of God than admit the truth.

It is interesting though that every person on the planet would have no issues with you verbally or otherwise if you asked them, do you believe man walked on the moon ? Or do you believe in bursting supernova's or black holes in outer space ? So twisted man has become in his arrogance of himself and what he can accomplish. So, what's up with Jesus ?

Why all of the cumulative effort of like minded individuals, doubting God and the book of infallible words, which give truth and definition to God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit ? Well the same as The Bible tells the truth. I think as Christians, we should be evangelistic in nature, with the want laid on our hearts to spread The Word Of God.

We must also help those with misinterpreted or incorrect information. I had a family member once ask me, “how could God be The Father, Jesus Christ The Son, And The Holy Spirit all at the same time ? I normally answer that question with something I heard on a documentary called “religious” which its entire intent was to show that God did not exist; the man asking the questions, or narrating the documentary, asked the same exact question, ...only this time he asked a Christian, who answered, I will explain how God could be the The Father, The Son And The Holy Spirit all at once like this. Consider it like this, think of water, in it's liquid state it is wet and pour-able, But if you freeze it, it becomes a solid and is hard and if you boil it, it then becomes steam, Right !?! but yet it is still water. Man so simple and down to earth that answer is and yet how powerful and provocative and thought involved it is.

Another factual evident is The Holy Bible itself, just consider the age of the Bible and the year it was written in. There is no way that the authors intention was malicious in fashion and his entire intent was to fabricate a story book that would bring people to believe his book of lies nearly two thousand later.

There is some writing in The Bible that is so straight forward as to a definition of who is responsible for ALL Life. Lets look at (Genesis Chapter One, Verse One, ESV), the very first words are “In the beginning, God created" I can not see it any more clear than that sentence there. It is so hard to even imagine that our laws in which we are judged by in the court of law originated from guess where ? Yes The Bible. It says in (Exodus Chapter Twenty, verse Thirteen KJV) “Thou shalt not kill" a pretty basic law that we all are aware of, but not all people follow, yet a staple of our current law system. Or as we read in (Exodus Chapter Twenty, Verse Fifteen KJV) "Thou shalt not steal" another current value of our traditional legal system, but again not upheld by all people.

Even our traditional moral system has roots that stem from The Bible as it reads in (Exodus Chapter twenty, Verse Seventeen ESV) "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's."

So it seems as if we owe thanks to our Creator for our moral obligations from God through The Holy Bible, His Fallible words. False teaching and those who are misinformed, can be some of the hardest people to reach with the truth. As a true example there are Mormons out there that actually believe that Jesus is the spirit brother of Lucifer, and Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Jesus is the archangel Michael, or New Agers say Jesus is an avatar or enlightened messenger. An avatar ?

Where has society gone too ? We have moved away from the blinding truth that we are of God and Made in His likeness, we prefer the sins of the flesh over the law of our God, but hope is not yet lost for there are groups of believers who stand tall and unashamed to testify by mouth in front of others that Christ is there Lord And Savior. Remember what it says in (Mathew Chapter Seven, Verse Fourteen, ESV) “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."

So what's up with Jesus ? I think he has been there, here, everywhere always making available at all times the necessary tools to show his existence always, as it reads in (Revelation Chapter Twenty Two, Verse Thirteen ESV) "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."

So what's up with Jesus ? I think he has always been trying to bring all mankind to the belief and realization of Himself, I firmly believe that he protects us always as it says in (Psalms Chapter Twenty Three KJV)

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

He will not stop leaving available to us the option of free will to come to him along with all the tools needed for us to believe, all we need is our Bibles The Belief of Jesus and a Repetitive heart.

The work and ministry of sermonindex can be encapsulated in this one word: REVIVAL. sermonindex is not a organization, business, or any attempt by man to build something for God. It is rather a expression of a heart burden to see the Church revived and brought back to holiness, purity, and power with God. "The mission of SermonIndex is the preservation and propagation of classical vintage preaching and the promotion of genuine biblical revival to this generation."

First Time In 2016

This is the first, and most likely only time in 2016 I will ask.

I must ask again, no one acts, but will try yet again.

Please, I ask you to send a love offering of any size, keep us going, help us to day. I ask, and ask, and only one sister gives to this ministry monthly. I am not asking for a monthly offering OK, a one time gift. The mission must obtain things, and if you come, and love this ministry, stand with us, while we have an internet.
In Jesus

Guest Writer-Christians And The Public Square – To Fight Or Abandon? By Dr John Birley

We live at a time in which Christianity and the foundations that it rest upon are increasingly coming under attack. Christians are painted as being anti-science when it comes to the creation and evolution debate, as being homophobic as regards the issue of homosexuality, as sexist in their treatment of women and generally of holding to an antiquated, unsophisticated and irrelevant belief system which offers little to the “tech-savvy” 21st century.

Certainly critics of Christianity have become more vocal in the public square in recent times. The public square has both a literal and figurative meaning. Literally it could refer to a physical space but its figurative meaning implies a place where one is free to speak and be heard. A forum to air, discuss and debate differing views.

Historically such discourse typically took a verbal form of communication. Opinions and ideas were debated in law courts, in government chambers, in churches, in universities or in public houses. In the modern era with the exponential increase and diversity of media forms and the variety of platforms available to share this media, coupled with the insatiable appetite for fresh sound bite news items, have fed the trend for shrill and often ill-formed attacks against Christianity. As Christians have through every generation today we wrestle with our role in the culture we occupy. We seek to answer the question, what should our response as Christians be? Should we fight for our place in the public square, or step away to concentrate our efforts in other areas? Should we simply live out the gospel in our own communities and allow our influence to disseminate in a more organic manner.

The reality is that even in the west where we as Christians have enjoyed a privileged status for centuries we are witnessing a gradual and sustained demise in both our influence and role. Christian values shaped and impacted western cultures in deep and significant ways and whilst other voices were heard the Christian one was dominant. This is no longer the case. This does not mean that there is a vacancy in the public square but that the space once occupied by the church is now home to other ideologies, beliefs and worldviews. Worldviews that are at odds, usually in a hostile way to Christianity. Depending on where you live this may have been manifested in the marginalization of a Christian voice in the public square, legislation, either overtly, or by implication against Christian public speech, and in some instances in verbal or physical intimidation or outright violence.

We should note at this point that the media and those given a voice in the public square are often those with the most vehement polemic. This results of course in the opinions of those with the loudest voice or who despise Christianity the most holding centre stage. Non-believers without a strong opinion either way who undoubtedly make up the majority are seldom given a platform. The perception therefore is that the strongly argued atheistic opinion is the dominant one in society.

Sadly the fact that public opinion is too often allowed to be swayed by the loud vocal minority means that many non-believers fail to ever hear a well reasoned Christian defence. This is especially prevalent across increasingly secular Europe where Christians are marginalized or religion is regarded as a private matter and not one that should intrude into public discourse. In debates about the role or involvement of Christians in the public square public opinion appears to have shifted to the view that all voices carry equal weight at the table. Such a view perhaps too simplistically captures the post-modern notion of no over-arching meta-narrative. Christianity in such a system deserves the same voice as any other minority participant. Christianity offers they claim no more or less than any other voice in the public square. This brings us next to the nature of discourse in the public square.

Increasingly the means and manner of information exchange has resulted in a sound-bite culture or clipped form of communication which does not allow for a well reasoned and thorough discussion of the issues. This is of course something of a generalization, but the nature of modern media encourages brevity and information that can be consumed easily and quickly. Christians increasingly lose out in such communicative exchanges because a single sentence response is ultimately insufficient. It is difficult, if not impossible for example to answer the homosexual advocates' question of, “If they love each other what's wrong with it?” in a five second sound-bite. Increasingly in western cultures impassioned emotionalism wrapped around the ideology of human freedom triumphs against a well structured reasoned argument. This is not to suggest that Christianity lacks emotion or that one cannot make an emotional plea but rather to highlight that the nature of the public square makes argument refuting difficult.

As Christians therefore what should our conclusions be? Clearly we have been marginalized in our role and status in the public square. It seems unlikely that unless we witness a divine intervention and widespread repentance that the privilege and status of the church as dominant in the public square will return. Also the nature of modern communicative exchanges make it extremely difficult to convey our beliefs and values clearly and effectively.

One might therefore conclude that Christians should abandon the public square altogether and focus on areas they will more significantly be able to impact. My argument however would be that Christians by necessity need to be representative in the public square. But that equally they must demonstrate their Christian nature in the good they do in the community. The two go hand in hand. Through the demonstration of our God honouring lives and by extension our love for others we provide a visual and concrete witness of what it means to be a Christian and by doing so demonstrate our value in the public square. It is because of this value exhibited through our deeds that we underscore the importance of our position at the table of public discussion. As the Apostle Paul emphasizes in his short letter to Titus Christians are to devote themselves to good deeds (Tit 2:14, 3:1, 3:8, 3:14).

God's intention is that we work for good in our communities, not just for our brothers and sisters in Christ but for the community as a whole. It is perhaps natural in the increasingly hostile world we now inhabit that our tendency will be to figuratively close our doors. However as Christ demonstrated through his own example we are to minister and help those pushed to the margins, shunned and ignored. Churches should be welcoming places that are open to all. Places where the gospel is preached to a needy world. As Paul tells us, some unbelievers will be converted through this open door policy (1 Cor 14:25). In the same way perhaps much of what takes place in the public square will fall on deaf ear, but we cannot know what impact our words or actions might have. As a result to abandon the public square because it is hostile or difficult to navigate is to abandon a powerful means of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.

Hello February- A Word From The Throne On Judgment And Things To Come

NOTE; I WILL LEAVE THIS POST UP A FEW DAYS SO IT CAN HAVE A CHANCE TO BE READ AND NOT BURIED WAY DOWN THE PAGE.

 
A Word Of Judgment-February Will Make January Look Like A Walk In The Park.

The lord said,

"February will be much worse than January, much, more so, and March shall be much worse than February, this will continue until the total desolation is complete".

A while ago I posted, all I am getting every single day from the bible is Judgment, it is happening again, with many confirmations for the bride and personal confirmations of things the lord said by the small still voice.

One example is this, the lord said in the last month of 2014 that 2015 would be the graduating class of the tuition free bible college. I told this to all. I wrote it in my messages a few times. It shocked and upset many, but the lord said it. Dec to Mid Feb is when I have seen, in four years, many, many applications, a first happened in four years, so far this 2016, just a couple, and only a couple students may sign up. This was told and it has come to pass. It is things like this that show me over and over, God Still Speaks.

This message is one that tells me God Still Speaks. It is dire, I do not want to write it, think of it, or proclaim it, but the lord will not allow me to be silent. I would to God, none of these things were happening, and coming. I wish I had a few more years to teach, mentor, save souls, minister on-line, but all is coming to a swift end.

I also have a very deep burden to teach people to become a medical herbalist, no one has signed up, and it is a great school in deed.
These things I am saying are not my will, none of us want to see what is coming, but the lord has said , Judgment.

I will say something that is not a Prophecy, a gut feeling. THIS IS NOT A PREDICTION:

I deeply feel, that if we make it to August 1, 2016 I will be shocked and stunned, as I keep getting the, NOW it has started, as I posted below a couple posts down.

If anyone wishes for anything that is coming they would be a fool indeed.

There will be a global economic collapse, when the dust settles, the Kings Of The East-China-Russia an CO. will be the global leaders and will be the occupiers of the USA and the West.

The Kings of the East are the new power, they will be used, as one of the lords rods of correction on the West. I have said this many times, wrote it many times, and it is a fact.

The utter end of the Anglo Saxon powers will shift as we see it today. History teaches the powers always shift from the East to the West, now it is history repeating. We will see the East as the Super Power.
I do not care how powerful our military may seem, when the lord judges a place, we read in the word many times, their armies are made desolate, and this will happen, we will not win ww3 we will lose it, and many will die.

This makes many mad when I say, and write this, but it is the word of the lord, so persecution comes, it never leaves over this,so be it, I must obey the lord.

Many times I have said what Jeremiah said, " I will not speak your word anymore, it has only brought me pain-Yet I tried to keep it in and I could not for your word burned like a fire in my bones"(Paraphrase accurate)

I must once again say, the lord has said, “Judgment is on us NOW and each month it will become worse”. No one knows the exact time, but we know the season, and we are in that season today.

The freedom of the internet will be gone, ww3 will start very soon, an economic collapse, all this year 2016. If we do not see a 100% economic global collapse in 2016, it will be so bad this year, most of us would not know the difference.

The US Government will soon come out and say, 'The Government is bankrupt and all social helps, and veterans pays will be cut'. Once the welfare helps, and payments due to X Vets are cut, this is when the cities will burn. The Government will try and hold this off a while, but God is in charge.

I read a post from a Rapture camp site, the post said in June 2016, the tribulation starts, I understand why June, month 6, year 2016 , two 6's, this is not three 6's- 666. Thus the rapture is being said to happen in, or around June 2016, this is utter foolishness. The post, one below, the video says 50 reasons for not prepping, one thing Snyder wrote was the Rapture is a big reason why many are taking all this lightly, Snyder is, as I am-Post Tribulation. The Pre-Trib Rapture is a false hope.

I have seen You Tube videos with many shouting and so happy, because they honestly believe, as I once did, they they will be raptured out of what's coming , they will not be, and they will be so let down,they will be a part of the persecutors of the remnant bride, watch and see.

(Recall, Albert Pikes WW3 predictive set up).

We will see many, many, events in February, and in March To April- Huge events, this I was told. Like last years earthquake prophecy, before May 1 , it happened, this is the same time frame for a huge event, and many other events, by May 1. This I was told.

If you are one of the lords, fear not, but be as prepared as you can be in every way.

Do not dwell on these things, it is a call to the unsaved of great Judgment, it is a call to the saved to get serious with the lord, make every single day count, say your good-byes, get your house in order, make calls, write emails, and say your  sorry to anyone you can think of, do this before, make peace, stay in love and be ready to be used by the lord in a mighty way. I will end with the Chapter I was given.

Hello February 2016, it will be a wild ride.


Hos 9:1 Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor.

Hos 9:2 The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her.

Hos 9:3 They shall not dwell in the LORD'S land; but Ephraim shall return to Egypt, and they shall eat unclean things in Assyria.

Hos 9:4 They shall not offer wine offerings to the LORD, neither shall they be pleasing unto him: their sacrifices shall be unto them as the bread of mourners; all that eat thereof shall be polluted: for their bread for their soul shall not come into the house of the LORD.

Hos 9:5 What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the day of the feast of the LORD?

Hos 9:6 For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant places for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns shall be in their tabernacles.

Hos 9:7 The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

Hos 9:8 The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God.

Hos 9:9 They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins.

Hos 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

Hos 9:11 As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.

Hos 9:12 Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!

Hos 9:13 Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.

Hos 9:14 Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.

Hos 9:15 All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.

Hos 9:16 Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.

Hos 9:17 My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.

The Rapture, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton And 50 Other Excuses People Use For Not Preppinger

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-rapture-donald-trump-hillary-clinton-and-50-other-excuses-people-use-for-not-prepping

Have you ever come away discouraged after trying to talk about prepping with friends or family members that just don’t seem to be interested?  Over the years, I have heard countless excuses from people for why they aren’t getting prepared for what is about to happen to America.  Some of the excuses, like a lack of money, are definitely legitimate.  But in many other instances, the objections don’t seem to make a lot of sense.  In America today, most people let others do most of their thinking for them.  And in general, our political, religious and cultural leaders are telling Americans that there really is no reason to be overly concerned about the future.  They assure us that they have everything under control, and that life is only going to get better in the years ahead.  Bad beliefs lead to bad decisions which in turn lead to bad actions, and most Americans have chosen to believe what the elite are telling them at this point.  As a result, only a small fraction of society is getting physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared for the exceedingly hard times that are rapidly approaching.  The following are 53 common excuses that people like to use for not prepping…

1. “Obama fixed everything that was wrong with America”

2. “When Hillary Clinton is elected she will put this nation back on the right track”

3. “Donald Trump will make America great again”

4. “I don’t have to prepare because the rapture is going to happen before anything really bad happens to this country”

5. “Everybody told me that the world was going to end in September and that didn’t happen”

6. “I don’t have enough money to buy emergency food and supplies”

7. “I’m too exhausted after working hard all day to do anything else”

8. “There is never enough time, and I would rather spend my precious free time doing something else”

9. “The U.S. economy is the greatest economy in the history of the world – there is no way that it could ever possibly collapse”

10. “Whenever we have had a major economic downturn in the past we have always recovered”

11. “Things are never going to get THAT bad”

12. “When things fall apart the federal government will take care of us”

13. “I am going to spend my extra money on fun rather than on fear”

14. “While you guys are sitting on stockpiles of expired food, I will be counting all of the money that I made in the stock market”

15. “When disaster strikes I will simply steal food from everyone else that has been prepping”

16. “The people at the Federal Reserve are very highly educated and they know precisely what they are doing”

17. “Wal-Mart will always be there when I need it”

18. “I’m too lazy to get prepared”

19. “Preppers don’t have a positive mental attitude”

20. “It is anti-faith to get prepared for an economic collapse”

21. “If the economy does collapse, I will just go on welfare”

22. “Nobody can get prepared for every possible scenario, so why bother?”

23. “I would rather save money for retirement”

24. “Obama told me that anyone that says the economy is heading for hard times is just peddling fiction”

25. “The stock market always rebounds to new highs after every crash, so why worry?”

26. “I don’t have room to store anything at my place”

27. “Prepping is something that crazy people do”

28. “I’m not a conspiracy theorist”

29. “I am afraid that all of the food that I store is going to go bad”

30. “All of the people that got freaked out about Y2K look really foolish right about now, don’t they?”

31. “Instead of being ultra-paranoid, I would rather just enjoy my life”

32. “If things get really bad, the people in my community will just band together to take care of everyone”

33. “If society did completely collapse, I would not want to go on living anyway”

34. “I’m too lazy to learn how to grow a garden”

35. “If you assume that the worst is eventually going to happen, then you don’t really believe in America”

36. “If something happens I will just run out to the store and grab what I need”

37. “If all of my debts are wiped out during an economic collapse I might as well live it up now”

38. “When things hit the fan I will just go live with my relatives that have been prepping”

39. “My spouse does not believe that prepping is a good idea”

40. “Prepping seems so complicated and I don’t know where to start”

41. “I don’t have to worry about preparing for a major disaster because that is what FEMA is for”

42. “There is no way that the supermarkets could ever possibly run out of food”

43. “Once I get my student loans and credit card debt paid off then maybe I will start thinking about prepping”

44. “My relatives are already convinced that I am a nutjob – I don’t need to make it worse by stockpiling buckets of food in my garage”

45. “What would the people at work think?”

46. “If there really was a reason to get prepared they would have told us about it on the news”

47. “People have been predicting doom and gloom for years, and yet nothing has happened”

48. “If I do prepare, angry mobs will just come and steal it all at some point anyway”

49. “Look at how fast technology is advancing – there is no way that things could completely fall apart now that humanity has so much advanced knowledge”

50. “We live in the greatest country on the entire planet during the greatest time for humanity in the history of the world”

51. “I have no intention of becoming a card carrying member of the Tin Foil Hat Brigade”

52. “If we are all going to die anyway, what is the point of prepping?”

53. “There is always more time – if I don’t get prepared today I can always get prepared tomorrow”

If you would like to learn more about how you can get prepared for what is immediately ahead of us, you may want to check out an article that I recently did entitled “70 Tips That Will Help You Survive What Is Going To Happen To America“.  It contains quite a few little “nuggets” that many people don’t commonly think about when it comes to prepping.

Personally, I think that it would be very nice if normal life were to just continue indefinitely in America.  That way I could just sit up on my mountain and enjoy a nice quiet life with my family.

But the truth is that we are moving into the greatest time of chaos that any of us have ever experienced, and those of us that have been preparing are going to need to step forward as leaders.  It is during times of great darkness that light is needed the most, and during the hard years ahead there is going to be a crying need for people that have great strength, great courage and great love.

So do you have any excuses that you have heard that you think would make good additions to this list?  Please feel free to share them with the rest of us by leaving a comment below…
