Eric Ludy - The Gospel -Short Video

I have posted this video more then once over the years.
If you have seen it, see it again.
I post this, because the lord spoke to my heart  tonight to do so. Some may have never seen this.
It is a pro video, meaning amazing quality. 
This video has touched me year after year. This is a must watch, mark my words you will never look upon your salvation, nor your call to serve our lord the same. 
It starts with a man in a prison in shackles he is saved and the rest is what happens, or should happen after we are saved. 

 
I ask you beloved, watch this video- loud, the music is amazing, the words thunder through your soul.



I find truth always thunders in our soul, truth has a way of doing that, if you allow it. After you watch the video, I ask you do that first, after, read what I have to say this day………………………………………………………………………………




OK, tell me that was not amazing.



We live in a day and age where missionaries, and soul winners are very few.

America used to send out more missionaries than any country, today it is 100% different, we now have more missionaries coming to America, I find that statistic to be alarming.



My own main call is as an Evangelist, a Missionary, but you need not be an Evangelist, or missionary to do the work of an Evangelist. Paul told Pastor Timothy, ‘ Do the work of an evangelist’.

I guess now days most pastors simply over look this and decide its to hard, its to dangerous, its simply not the way the Church works anymore. Guess what? Nothing has changed, the body of Christ has. The bible has not changed, the preaching of it has.



In this politically correct, post modern world we lost our way.

We are saved for a reason it goes much deeper than filling deep pockets with silver and Gold.



In church history we read a very powerful story.

A priest was standing in front of the Pope. The Pope said, ‘look my son’, as he showed a table of gold. ‘No longer do we have to say silver and gold have we none’.

The humble priest said, ‘True father, but because of this, we can no longer say, 'rise and be healed.’



Have you tasted and seen that the lord is good? If so it comes with a cost, a call, a bloody cross that we are told to pick up and follow Jesus, few want that bloody cross, few want to follow in Jesus foot steps.



To you reader, if you are straddling the fence, understand that is a choice, you made that choice,  you can make a choice, by free will, to accept Jesus as your lord and savior. God sends no one to hell; because going to hell is also a choice.



What will you do? Continue as you are and hope on your death bed you will have a moment to accept Jesus, this is foolish you do not know how you will die, but you, and I will die.



I ask my self, what Gospel are the believers reading? It is the same one I read, in the gospel we are commanded, it is not just a suggestion, but it is a command, to go into the entire world and make disciples of all nations. Soul winning. Simple, but neglected.

You unsaved one I have a question for you.

Have you had enough yet? Have you become sick and worn out by all that is going on in this world?

You may feel you are a good person, you are good to your fellow man and try and do what is right, but that will not save you, salvation is by faith, not works, but works are also commanded, I call it, Faith that works.



Jesus is the only way to the father; no one can come to the Father but through Jesus.

Repent of your sin today, and start the journey of a lifetime, you are called for such a time as this. Reader, what will you do?



Time is running out, and most just laugh away the hours just living as a law unto themselves.



 William Booth the founder of the Salvation Army, said one word on his death bed, OTHERS.



I do not blame the seekers for scoffing at the Church that is in ruins, but do not scoff at Jesus, the cross, and what he did for you.



Accept Jesus today, do not put it off, one day you will stand before the throne of God, it will be to late. Do not point at hypocrites in the Church; this is about you, not them. NO excuse will ever get you to heaven, but the truth of the Gospel will.



What will you do O’ what will you do.

Mercy Me - I Can Only Imagine- Dedicated to All Those That Have lost A Loved One


The bible says,’ Precious in the sight of the lord are the death of his saints’ (Paraphrase)

I have been getting emails from many suffering dear saints, some are critically ill, some are near death, others have lost a love one, some a beloved pet. The lord sees your tears; he holds your hand and is with you in this time of sorrow.

This classic song always moves me to tears. May it bring hope, encouragement, and comfort to all the lords’ beloved.

The sifted saints are going through the battle of their life, Jesus said, ‘He will never leave us or forsake us. NEVER.!!!

Most people I talk to on the phone, or email, all seem to be in that holy place of being sifted, hold on, it will get much harder, the lord is preparing us for the days ahead.

When God seems silent it is not because he is off the throne, he is allowing many hardships to mold us. The Father knows what he is doing, even when we do not understand what’s happening.

I pray dear saint of the lord, hold on, do not give up, our lord will visit you where you are, I do not care where it is, one prayer away, most are just one prayer away, from the second touch many are in need of, may you be granted by his mercy and grace that second touch today.

I end with this.

Tonight was very special to me. Peggy, my Son Nick, and myself sat out in the court yard, we took communion, after, me and my wife prayed, it was silent, under the star filled sky’s, with an occasional meteorite was sublime, it was so still, the wide open desert, (now cool at night PTL), looking at the stars, this is one thing I do love about the desert, the stars, the silence, the soft wind and the anointing of the lord. It was a night I will cherish for my life, as my own wife continues to wither away.

She is so ill, she never even comes out doors at night, she was able to come out this night, for that I am grateful, embrace the now, and leave the days ahead in the hands of the lord.

The lord gave us this Psalm I give it to you.

 Psa 34:1  A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Psa 34:2  My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

Psa 34:3  O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

Psa 34:4  I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Psa 34:5  They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

Psa 34:6  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

Psa 34:7  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Psa 34:8  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psa 34:9  O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

Psa 34:10  The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

Psa 34:11  Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Psa 34:12  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

Psa 34:13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

Psa 34:14  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Psa 34:15  The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

Psa 34:16  The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

Psa 34:17  The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Psa 34:18  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Psa 34:19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Psa 34:20  He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

Psa 34:21  Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

Psa 34:22  The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

The Up Coming Solar Eclipse- Virgo Is Not The Women In Revelations Chapter 12-Reposting for A Reason



I had to post this again; due to the fact many are in fear, freaking out about the up coming solar eclipse. I emailed some information to my close friends; you may disagree with me, that is ok. I do not claim to know it all. I honestly try and give messages with some meat, commentaries, Greek, Hebrew, and exposition that I feel are correct.

I was reading some comments on videos concerning this coming eclipse, it is odd, I admit that, but I have posted many times concerning the fact the roots of all of this are from Pagan belief systems and Mystical beliefs.

Some are saying, the rapture will happen, others the end of the world, and others the start of the tribulation. I do not claim to know if it’s the start of anything, maybe it is TPTB just cannot wait to start something. The illuminati uses such celestial signs and numbers and live by it, yes the Illuminati, that should put up a red flag with their pagan theories.

Last time I posted this many were critical, I rest my case in the information given and let you decide. I do not lord over anyone’s faith, we are not to do that, nor make people believe all we do, we are all different, we have different opinions that is great, freedom of speech and thought. Our sovereign lord allows us to think, we are not robots, as many non-believers think. So have an open mind, read what I have and do some research and see what you come up with.

I have added few things and re- wrote this old post. It’s a long one, are you ready?

A very different post with a lot of information was posted back in 2012 see that, the link is,



For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ? And no marvel for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also were transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. II Cor. 11:13-15


How does this transformation happen? Occult sources state that "transformation" is the outcome of a series of processes called initiation into the Eastern or Western Mysteries, which Scripture terms "the depths of Satan" (Rev. 2:24). As the born-again Christian becomes a new creation in Christ (Acts 7:42-3) and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit (John 14:17), the person who experiences occult initiation is transformed into a new creature in Satan and is indwelt by one or more devils. We are told that the adepts and masters—the chosen few who have gone beyond the Lesser Mysteries and enter the Greater Mysteries—ascend to the very Throne of God and are "deified". Deification, of course, is only an illusion; however, these high level initiates, having experienced the 'depths of Satan', are indwelt by a personality that is not their own. And a certain number of these "deified" men and women have been incarnated by devils that are capable of impersonating a born-again Christian. Thus possessed by highly intelligent supernatural entities, we find many 'wolves in sheep's clothing' on the Christian scene that exhibit a "born-again" personality.



Because evil spirits can persuasively masquerade as ministers of righteousness, the elect must look beyond outward appearances and exercise their spiritual senses to discern between good and evil. This requires a spiritual perceptivity beyond the low standard exhibited by nominal Christianity, for Satan creates first-class images for his most valuable ministers, who often become prominent personalities through image campaigns that are designed expressly to deceive the Christian masses. The wise Christian will disregard outward appearances and become impersonally objective, putting a man or woman's doctrine the acid test of Scripture. Moreover, teachings must be analyzed with careful attention to details and nuances since false doctrines are often framed in an artifice of truths and half-truths designed to fool and entrap the masses of shallow Christians.


The promo on the back cover of The Real Meaning of the Zodiac reveals that, despite his Christian gloss on the Zodiac and disingenuous caveats concerning modern astrology, D. James Kennedy is looking to this pseudo-science to forecast the future of the world:


“Startling discoveries related by eminent theologian Dr. D. James Kennedy prove that God created the Zodiac! God intended the stars to foretell the future of the world. Discover what Dr. Kennedy calls biblical astrology or the Gospel in the stars. Reading this book: The Real Meaning of the Zodiac just might give you insight into your future.”


According to J.R. Church, founder and director of the “Prophecy in the News Ministry,” the first four signs of the Zodiac prophesied the birth of Christ, the middle four signs foretold the Church Age, and the last four signs expound events yet future as recorded in the book of Revelation. In their program on the “Signs and Seasons,” Gary Stearman prefaced his comments with assurances that the Zodiac accurately foretells future Messianic events:

Stearman: “...In other words, the Lord is saying, Do you know about the Messiah, the redemption, do you know how it's going to happen? Can you figure it out ahead of time? Can you see into the future as I can? Of course the answer is no...But we have just enough information to understand the workings of the thing.”

J.R Church: “Let us start with Virgo...because God said, Let the lights in the heavens be for signs and for seasons... Let's briefly go through the signs. Virgo speaks of Bethlehem, so from Virgo to Leo, the twelve constellations, we have the spring and summer... Everything begins with Virgo bringing forth the Son of God. In Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius we see the first advent of Christ, His death, burial and resurrection, His battle against Satan. In Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries we see the Church Age. The head of the goat, the body of the fish—Jesus is the sacrificial goat and out of the head of the fish comes the body, which is the Church, the symbol of the fish. And then, of course, there's Aquarius pouring out the Holy Spirit. That's the day of Pentecost. And the two fish with their tails tied together represent the saints, the Old Testament saints and New Testament saints. And they're all under the control of Aries the Lamb who is the Lord Jesus Christ. Following that is Cetus who rises up, the world government, and after that follows Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo, and those are the second advent of Christ. The Judge is coming. Gemini represents the rapture, Cancer represents the resurrection, and Leo, the Lion, is seen jumping on the Hydra, the many-headed dragon. That's all the book of Revelation...” (1053)





NOTE: This site I do not fully endorse, some strange stuff on it and they seem to really like Alex Jones, great information and very, very long posts

This is the source and a great site to learn a whole lot more on this and the cult of the black virgin that teaches the Virgo constellation apostasy

“In 1894, a year after publication of The Witness of the Stars, Robert Brown, himself an author on biblical subjects, wrote a booklet called A Reply to Dr. Bullinger's So-Called 'Witness of the Stars.' He opened with some of the major criticisms being leveled against the book:..


“'...In a later and larger work...entitled 'The Witness of the Stars,' I am sorry to say, that the Doctor has advanced views, which are not only...unsound but are far more dangerous than those I have already referred to: for in this Book he has taught doctrines which certainly savour of heresy; if indeed they be not in themselves, as many even think, distinctly heretical...

"But the great evil of the Book, lies...in its teaching that we have IN THE STARS another revelation from God, which the Doctor asserts is a 'pure and undefiled,' and, therefore, as authoritative and true, as the revelation which we have in the Bible itself; and as the so-called science of Astrology is again rapidly coming to the front, and has many adherents, in these days, my solemn conviction is that this work will greatly tend to foster and extend this abomination...



O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have

erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. I Tim 6:20-21

Although astrology is promoted as a branch of astronomy, it is really a pseudo-science based on ancient misconceptions about the design of the universe. Michael P. Wright argues that “the support of a belief system so irrational as astrology is certainly not the work of science,” nevertheless the ancient superstitions of Babylon and Egypt have been revived and are now the basis of a hugely erroneous belief that mankind is entering a New Age of peace and prosperity:

“The idea that we are entering a 'New Age' is rooted in astrology, a pseudo-science developed in Babylonia about 2500 years ago. Ancient astrologers observed over time a slow apparent shifting in the positions of the twelve major constellations they had identified, and believed that a significant change in the course of human history would begin at those times when a different constellation moved into alignment with the sun at the vernal equinox. Each astrological 'age' is supposed to last about 2100 years.


“Contemporary New Age devotees are celebrating the notion that we are now entering the 'Age of Aquarius,' because this constellation is coming to occupy the position formerly held by Pisces. The idea was popularized by the 1968 musical Hair.

“Of course, astronomers know that the movement of the constellations in space has nothing to do with the way they are viewed from earth. The whole system of astrology was constructed on the basis of the erroneous belief that the earth was the center of the universe, and the heavenly bodies all revolved around it. In reality, the apparent shift in the position of the constellations is caused by the precession of the earth's axis.


One of the ancient thinkers who advanced astrology was the Egyptian Ptolemy, who lived in the second century A.D. Ptolemy believed that the earth was at the center of the universe, and that the planets, sun, and stars revolved around it. It is from Ptolemy that the phrase Ptolemic conception of the universe is derived. The idea of an earth-centered universe was the official dogma of the Catholic Church up until the 16th century, when it was challenged by Copernicus, who argued that the earth revolved around the sun.

“Famous in the 17th century for defending the Copernican view was Galileo, who was accused by the Catholic Church of heresy and condemned to house arrest, for life, at his villa near Florence. He was also forbidden to publish. And herein lies a great irony: Christianity is seen by New Age believers as part of the 'Piscean establishment,' which they expect to be overthrown in the Age of Aquarius. Yet by virtue of their belief in astrology, developed in alignment with the Ptolemic conception of the universe, the New Agers are in tacit alliance with the Catholic Inquisition's persecution of Galileo! But no problem. The postmodernist mind is not uncomfortable with contradiction.” (1063)


The mystery religion of ancient Egypt was received from Hermes Trismegistus, a demi-god posing as Enoch escaped from the judgment of the Flood. Hermes' dictum “as above, so below” became the supreme law of the land of Egypt so that (man being a microcosm of the universe) whatever occurred in the heavens was regarded as the blueprint of the gods for man's activity on earth. J.R. Church and Gary Stearman have Christianized this occult concept for their audiences, being careful to hedge their teaching of the Hermetic axiom “as above, so below” with the typical denial, lest they be found guilty of promoting astrology:


Gary Stearman: “...the Lord is explaining to Job the connection between heaven and earth. He asks some questions. He says, 'Canst thou bring for Mazzaroth in his season?', Mazzaroth being the Hebrew word for the celestial calendar—the calendar, the Zodiac.

The twelve signs. ...And the next verse is is fascinating: 'Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven?

Canst thou set the dominion thereof?' ...What the Lord is saying is that the

ordinances of heaven determine the dominion of the earth. There is a connection

between heaven and earth and it's linked to the north which exactly matches what we've been saying up to now.”





J.R. Church: “Now we are not talking about being able to look at a horoscope and determine the dominions of the earth. What we are talking about is looking at the signs and God's original prophetic message in those signs and how that relates to the dominion of the earth.” (1053)


“According to the [Edgar Cayce] readings, the Hall of Records is to be discovered and re-entered when 'the time has been fulfilled' — which, Cayce suggested, would be at or just before the close of the twentieth century, perhaps in 1998. The readings allude frequently to Old and New Testaments of the Bible, certain numerous references to Jesus, and depict the rediscovery of the Hall of Records as being linked in some way to a series of events that will prelude the 'Second Coming' of Christ.” (132:88)


Note: Do you see the seduction Edger Casey the false sleeping Prophet who had demons tell him and show him things and much dealt with the stars and the map of the USA and world now all over the net as what is ahead we have all seen this bogus map and it now bears the name the US Navy and all the maps of this origin can be traced from the demonic revelations given to the false prophet Edger Casey, and yet so many Christians are falling for it, this ties in with the false ELE event I keep writing about, its all a lie.


This source shows us how the so called new revelation I see all over the net, propagated by so called christian saying Virgo is the mother and the Christ child and dragon is the women of Revelations 12, I mean reader its everywhere, I am sure some of you have already seen it, to understand this false sign and its pagan origins you can see how a lie repeated often enough becomes to may truth, you must do reading to find these things it is a must and REV 12 the women Virgo and the child and dragon are 100% pagan astrology and has over taken the prophecy crazed Church.


What these Christians are saying, is due to the current star constellation (pagan) means rev 12 the women Virgo is the sign that we are in a time frame that is not at all biblical, true, but a lie. The women of rev 12 is not a pagan constellation, it has nothing to do with a constellation, and it is completely out of the biblical prophetic time line, this is why we are told let no man deceive you in any way as I have posted on from 2 Thess ch 2.


I hope from these few snip its from a very interesting and very well documented book and site has shown you a little of my proof concerning, the false teachers and the ones who simply do not know what they are talking about, Pagan religion, new age, anti Christ revelations and making it a revelation to Christian end time truth, this indeed is a great deception.


It is literally every where Agusto Perez, some may heard of and he teaches this cultic stuff is called Dominionist and part of the manifest sons of God, as I have said, ‘know the messenger before you head his message’, dear reader learn to have discernment, do study to show yourself approved, do not take the word as fact because a person writes a book, makes a video and it goes viral. This is very dangerous stuff and the grand false deception in the days we live in, the pagan Christian star constellation of Virgo being the women of revelations 12. It makes me ill every time I see even well meaning, but uninformed Christian post and pass this stuff off.


Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;


Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:




We as Christians are clearly taught a truth, and I will end with this truth. Found in the book of Jer Ch 10


Jer 10:2 thus saith Jehovah, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them.


Geneva Bible note, God forbids his people to give credit or Fear the constellations and conjunctions of stars or planets, there secret motions or influences. They have no power of themselves, they are governed by God.


Wesley;


Jer 10:2 Learn not - The Jews being to live among the Chaldeans in their captivity, where many of them were already, the prophet admonishes them against the Chaldean idolatries, who were all much addicted to astrology. The signs - This was so common among them, that Judicial astrologers, of what nation soever, were generally termed Chaldeans. The Heathen - Leave this to Heathens; it doth not become God's people.


JFB;


signs of heaven — The Gentiles did not acknowledge a Great First Cause: many thought events depended on the power of the stars, which some, as Plato, thought to be endued with spirit and reason. All heavenly phenomena, eclipses, comets, etc., are included.



GILL:


Jer 10:2 Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the Heathen,.... Of the nations round about them, particularly the Chaldeans; meaning their religious ways, their ways of worship, their superstition and idolatry, which they were very prone unto, and many of which they had learned already; and were in danger of learning more, as they were about to be dispersed in divers countries, and especially in Chaldea, which was a very superstitious and idolatrous nation:


and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; by which are meant, not any extraordinary signs, such as are predicted in Joe_2:30, and by our Lord, as signs of the last destruction of Jerusalem, and of his coming, and of the end of the world, Mat_24:3, but ordinary signs, which are no other than the sun, and moon, and stars, which are set up for signs and seasons, and days and years, Gen_1:14, and as long as they are observed as signs of places and of times, it is well enough; but if more is attributed unto them, as portending things future, and as having an influence on the birth and death, dispositions and actions of men, when in such a conjunction, situation, and position, it is wrong; which is what is called judicial astrology, and to which the Chaldeans were much addicted, and is here condemned; nor should men possess themselves with fears with what shall befall them on such accounts, since all things are under the determination, direction, and influence of the God of heaven, and not the signs of them; especially they should not be so observed as to be worshipped, and to be so awed by them as to fear that evil things will befall, if they are not; and to this sense is the Syriac version, "the signs of the heavens do not worship, or fear". Jarchi interprets them of the eclipses of the luminaries, which may be thought to forbode some dreadful things (l):


for the Heathen are dismayed at them; which is a reason why the people of God should not, because it is a Heathenish fear; or, "though the Heathen" (m), &c.; though they are frightened at such and such conjunctions and positions of the stars, and fear that such and such dreadful things will follow; and never regard the supreme Being and first cause of all things; yet such who have the knowledge of the true God, and a revelation of his will, ought not to be terrified hereby; see Isa_47:13. This text is brought to prove that the Israelites are not under any planet (n); since the Heathens are dismayed at them, but not they.


The verse in Hebrew reads as follows.


Jer_10:2. Thus saith Jahveh: To the ways of the heathen use yourselves not, and at the signs of the heaven be not dismayed, because the heathen are dismayed at them.


Matt Henry:


I. A solemn charge given to the people of God not to conform themselves to the ways and customs of the heathen. Let the house of Israel hear and receive this word from the God of Israel: “Learn not the way of the heathen, do not approve of it, no, nor think indifferently concerning it, much less imitate it or accustom yourselves to it. Let not any of their customs steal in among you (as they are apt to do insensibly) nor mingle themselves with your religion.” Note, It ill becomes those that are taught of God to learn the way of the heathen, and to think of worshipping the true God with such rites and ceremonies as they used in the worship of their false gods. See Deu_12:29-31. It was the way of the heathen to worship the host of heaven, the sun, moon, and stars; to them they gave divine honours, and from them they expected divine favours, and therefore, according as the signs of heaven were, whether they were auspicious or ominous, they thought themselves countenanced or discountenanced by their deities, which made them observe those signs, the eclipses of the sun and moon, the conjunctions and oppositions of the planets, and all the unusual phenomena of the celestial globe, with a great deal of anxiety and trembling.


Business was stopped if any thing occurred that was thought to bode ill; if it did but thunder on their left hand, they were almost as if they had been thunderstruck. Now God would not have his people to be dismayed at the signs of heaven, to reverence the stars as deities, nor to frighten themselves with any prognostications grounded upon them. Let them fear the God of heaven, and keep up a reverence of his providence, and then they need not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the stars in their courses fight not against any that are at peace with God. The heathen are dismayed at these signs, for they know no better; but let not the house of Israel, that are taught of God, be so.


Dear reader I hope you made it to the end of this very important teaching, and warning. I hope you see the word of God as it is, and what Fundamental orthodox commentaries have to say concerning, planets, constellations, alignments and comets. The Pagans and mystics see all this as thing of great fear as they did not worship the God who created all these stars, planets and comets, we are not to be in fear of what these cultist, false doctrine, pagan teacher's bring us, no fear of a comet or a Planet X..Y...or Z.

I hope you got this all, I pray you did, as it clearly shows us what has invaded the Church, Christian teachings taken from the 100% pure pagan roots in the virgin as the women of Revelations 12, may the lord open your eyes to this truth and may you stop heeding what is being spread all over the net, so many are falling for, as I said, one of the greatest deceptions in bible history.

 Satan is the father of Lies, He is the father of fear, Do not heed false teachings, visions, prophecy's or men and women who teach anything to do with- what I hope you just learned.  Get a sound biblical insight to the only true source of truth, the word of God. Anything that causes confusion or fear is not for Jehovah God.

Exceeding The Scribes and Pharisees-A Personal Confession


 

 

NOTE: In this Message, I start with a teaching, but the end is my heart pouring out in honest confession to you beloved.


Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

RWP;

Matthew 5:19

Shall do and teach (poiēsēi kai didaxēi). Jesus puts practice before preaching.
The teacher must apply the doctrine to himself before he is qualified to teach others.
The scribes and Pharisees were men who “say and do not” (Mat_23:3), who preach but do not perform.
This is Christ’s test of greatness.

Cambridge;

Matthew 5:19

Again addressed to the Apostles as teachers. The union of doing and teaching is essential. It was the grave sin of the Pharisees that they taught without doing. See Ch. Mat_23:2-3. This explains the next verse.

Who were the Scribes? What were they?

Scribes-PCBL
Scribes, a learned body of men, otherwise denominated lawyers, whose influence with the Jewish nation was very great at the time when our Savior appeared.

In the New Testament, the scribes are found as a body of high state functionaries, who, in conjunction with the Pharisees and the high priests, constituted the Sanhedrin, and united all the resources of their power and learning in order to entrap and destroy the Savior of mankind.
Cyclopedia-Strong's and McClintock's

Scribes, Jewish;

These persons (called in Heb. סוֹפְרִים, sopherim; Gr. γραμματεῖς) were originally merely writers or copyists of the law, who followed this business as a mode of livelihood; but eventually, they rose to the rank of a learned profession — becoming the doctors of the law and interpreters of the Scriptures. As such they frequently appear in the New Test., and occasionally in the later books of the Old, and their office gradually became of still more importance after the dissolution of the Jewish Commonwealth.

I always knew the truth that no one was to be called a DR. This is where it first came from. Having a DR degree and running a college granting Dr. Degrees, it honestly is not biblical. Crazy for a Dean to say this, but it is the truth.

The message is simple, in red up top is where the meat is.

This is what the word will be based on.


Shall do and teach (poiēsēi kai didaxēi). Jesus puts practice before preaching.
The teacher must apply the doctrine to himself before he is qualified to teach others.
The scribes and Pharisees were men who “say and do not” (Mat_23:3), who preach but do not perform.
This is Christ’s test of greatness.

Cross Reference, this is what the message is saying.

 Psa 51:10  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Psa 51:11  Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

Psa 51:12  Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Psa 51:13  Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

 

This is pointed at Teachers, Preachers, Academics, but to all Christians. We are instructed to teach one another in songs, psalms, and spiritual songs. It is a truth we must be teachable, all of us.

To live the Christian life and not just speak, or say things we do not do, this makes us not exceeding the Scribes and Pharisees. Those who speak of Christ to others, but do not perform the Christian walk.

This is not a word of exhortation, it has some of that, and this is very personal, as you will read.

Dry times, the heavens are brass, an eclipse of faith; these are things David Wilkerson has wrote on and preached on many times. Sometimes it has nothing to do with a secret sin, it is how the Lord breaks us to bring Jesus back into our focus.
I am in that place, I have been feeling in the last Two months un- qualified to teach anyone, anything, this happens, it is where powerful words are birthed, the thorn in the flesh is for a reason.

One big thorn that causes me anguish is my grammar. A student got me Grammarly and another, office 2000; I needed Word, even an old version. I looked at writings I did in these programs and felt O' Lord I look like an idiot. But get this, I was doing a Herb writing, much was from high-level Herbal text books, it had more grammar mistakes than my own words, I had comfort from that. I strive to be better in grammar but need help, these things help. Off topic, but I wanted to say, it has been hard work, slowly correcting posts, and writings, it will take a long time as I have thousands do re -do. This message has many errors and I am posting it as it is, Grammarly takes away your own words and tries to have you re -write it, so its dull and not what my heart wants to say. The program has a steep learning curve, for me that is. Back to the message I have.

This is a thorn, it's humbling, it's embarrassing, but even great novelists, all writers have a pro editor, and all do.

This sparked a dry spell, it took my eyes off Jesus and I felt no better than a scribe and nothing more, a big wake up call. This goes with the word, when we are dry, dead, the heavens are brass, no word from the throne, and no anointing, it is the greatest anguish any minister, or Christian will face.

May I, may you, exceed the scribes and Pharisees.

It's never fun to write such things, I feel by doing so, others can relate to it and say, ‘wow, I feel that and am going through that also'.

Is that you beloved, have you lost your first love, have you taken your eyes off only Jesus? I have and it’s killing me. There is hope for me and you, we are only one prayer away from being clean that is the wonder of the Gospel, if it would take more on our part it would be legalistic, and make the blood atonement of no effect.

Confess your sins to one another, that you may be healed, so my honest confession for the world to read will heal me, it can heal you as you have someone you can confide in, doing so public, I was not sure. David Wilkerson did this often, the Apostles did, so who am I?

The Lord allows dry times until we break, and I did last night, and I got a breakthrough, PTL for that.

I have always said, the best sermons we hear are from a minister who has gone through what he is preaching, going through it in the present, and has the scars to prove it. Do you have those blessed stripes, the Pharisees did not, one can take the easy way, not the narrow way, one leads to hell, the other eternal life, what road have you chosen? It is a commitment, and we all fail many times, repent over and over, it's the way of our holy Pilgrimage.

We are called to be in the world, but not of the world. You need not be a worldly Christian, what I am saying is, taking our eyes off Jesus, letting the news, events, and world chaos, causes us to get distracted. I found this happens easily, and after one brick at a time has fallen slowly, and un- noticed, the wall now has a breach.

The devil is out to weary the saints and he has made more progress than the Church, this is the truth. May we all come back to our Lord in simplicity and faith, anything else is man made religion.

It has broken my heart when the websites lost many readers, this has not ended, I was in sorrow. The Lord allowed it to get my attention as all things do work out for our good. WE may not understand why the Lord allows so many things in our lives and others, know this, the Lord allows it as a breaking point and also a restoration point, It all starts with confession and after we are healed.

I was not in sorrow because few readers mean no love offerings; this almost never happens it is honestly a depression as few ‘one hearts’ are getting to a site with sound doctrine. If you take a stand and go public, such messages like this will be scorned at, the enemy will bring trolls and condemners, I know this, and I accept it.

 I pray you beloved are getting something from this, thus I open my heart wide and leave the results to God. I am a fool for Christ, nothing more, but becoming foolish in certain things is un- wise, I stand guilty.


I end with a word of encouragement.

No human is the way out, only one on one prayer with the Lord, if you are dry, do not seek out others to give you a word, get the word for yourself. You will not be rejected by our High Priest and intercessor, Jesus, the Lamb of God, The Lion, the King, Jesus is still on the throne, and beloved by Jesus blood we have full access to the holy of holies. The enemy will lie and say,’ You hypocrite, your dry, you're raising your hands and you have worry and unbelief, look at you, rejected, forsaken and your God is nowhere to be found'. This is the father of lies and our own flesh.

What did satan say during Jesus 40 days in the wilderness, the place of temptation? The devil said each time. ‘You say you are… this, that, you say. This same devil does the same thing to us today he wants to make us think we are orphans, fatherless, just wondering through our deserts, dry times. It's an un- holy identity crises, not Psychology, but our identity as the image of Jesus.

Man says, the enemy says, especially when you are down you will be kicked and attacked, ‘you say you are…a Christian; you say you are… on and on.
This is the school of Christ, this is boot camp, this is the Christian walk, so we embrace this, learn, repent and move on fully, not partially, but fully restored, and fully alive in Christ.

I pray someone reading this will find comfort, I pray beloved if you are going through similar things you can learn from a simple preacher, with a broken heart for the world, our Country dying, and the loss of Bible Christianity in this dark world.

We can do nothing about this, the sun rises on the evil and the righteous, the rain falls on the evil and the just, that does not seem fair, it causes many to question God, I have come to learn, I must pray and love my enemies, I do not have a lot of enemies as I do not see many people in the desert mission of solitude, this is common in mission work. Online, well… let the chips fall where they will, I care not, beloved you should not take to heart anything, anyone says," Father forgive them for they know not what they do', as the stones are cast, yet at that time you can see the heavens open and see the glory of Jesus on the throne. May you see this today?

NOTE: A few hours after I did this post I just now read in one of the devotions in E-Sword
Wow, it really goes with this 100%

Something Truly Inspiring

“This I call to mind, therefore I hope.” (Lam_3:21)

Talk about a bad day; no, check that — a really bad day. No, worse even — a really, really bad stretch of really bad, bad days. That is what our lamenting poet is trying to describe for us in classic hyperbole as he tells of his awful woes .

“I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath,” he begins. And what follows is nothing less than gloom, despair, and agony!

To summarize for you — He is a man in the darkness, and not the light; and the Lord is turned against him all day long. His skin is old, and dried up, and his bones frail and brittle. He is fenced in all about with bitterness, chained with travail, and his prayers have been banished from entering heaven! People have made his situation the subject of derision; his soul is far removed from peace, and he has long forgotten what it was like to walk in prosperity.

See what I mean? This guy is having a really, really, really bad day.

Occasionally you run across something in the Bible that makes you wonder why it’s in there. Something dark and disturbing; something you don’t want to read, because it makes you think that it might happen to you. But I’m a preacher, so I have to read it!  And so, for your sake I draw a deep breath, man-up to the moment of truth, face my fears and read the dreadful passage.

And then I discover something truly inspiring.

Listen to this extraordinary statement this embattled man makes in the same breath with which he tells us his woeful tale — “but this I call to mind, therefore I hope. It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion's fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness” (Lam_3:22-23).

In this man’s darkest moment God’s light shines the brightest of all! Corrie Ten Boom said of her experience in the Nazi prison camp Ravenbruck, “There is no pit so deep, but that God’s love is not deeper still.”

We all have our bad days. And we all have God’s very own assurance that He will never permit us to be tested above what we are able to bear. We each have the opportunity to choose our response to every situation that we face.

God is looking for that man or woman who can say with Job, “though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Those who, like lamenting Jeremiah, nevertheless find hope in the midst of their most hopeless moments – and give glory to God even though Satan and circumstances all but demand that they curse Him.

I have the distinct feeling that I am writing this particular post for someone very specific today. Is it you?

Those who have ears to hear and eyes to see let them hear what the spirit is saying to his church


Lam 4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.

Many have said, if the lord did not rise and judge America he would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

I have always looked at it this way, as I read this verse it stuck up from the pages. I was hit with an insight. This verse only mentions Sodom, but both twin cities are being spoken of here.

 Jer. Is lamenting over Israel’s destruction, it is a hard book to read. Prophetic lamentation, weeping for your people, your fellow believers, you nation.

Prophets are known to be weepers, real ones that is not the false ones. Prophets weep, because it is a ministry, a call of great anguish. The lord breaks, purges and refines those that will be his spokesmen. Isa in ch 6 says, ‘I am a man of unclean lips, among a people of unclean lips, and the angel took a hot coal off the alter and touched Isaiah’s lips and his mouth was purged, it works no other way.

 Paul had his thorn, a messenger of Satan, the lord allowed it, why?, So Paul would not be puffed up by his revelations, prophecies and visions. A thorn is needed, a hot coal, persecutions, all to keep the voice speaking the word of the lord crushed and humble. The word says if you separate the precious from the vile, THAN you will be my spokesman.

A separation takes place, from the world, from sin, from places you used to go to, a separation from things you used to do, like T.V. to much, anything in excess is sin. A separation is necessary, separating things that are holy from the things that are unholy. Many have made peace with certain acceptable sins, you may even now see it as nothing vile at all, but the lord still does. It is only after we confront our small foxes that steal our grapes, after we are separate from the world, and come out of her my people, only than will the Prophet, the Christian, the one who speaks in anyway for the lord, be a true voice in the wilderness.

This is why our lord said count the cost, before you build, the cost of discipleship is heavy, salvation free, and some think it is legalism to say such things.

The difference is not just the separation, not just not doing things you once did, not just stopping certain habits, but the key is weeping, a burden.

The Prophets in the O.T. many times, as we see in Habb, the burden of...a burden is born in the prayer closet, secrets told to you, a weeping for a people, a situation, it is how the true word of the lord is incubated, in the prayer closet, a birth happens, the birth of a burden, it is like a seed planted by the lord this seed is watered by your tears, I see no more weeping, no more remorse, no more burden, no more caring, so few are weeping over sin, un-forgiveness, habits, that is how you experience a personal great awakening, you can not have a great awakening with out tears.

JER. is lamenting in tears, he knew , forget Sodom, my own people are, and will be judged in a harder way, Sodom was wiped out in a moment as this verse says, but the Lords people will not suffer just a moment, but a long time, as long as needed to bring those called, back to the cross.

Lam 4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom....

Reader do you understand this, what an insight to the lords Judgment on his people, it is far worse than Sodom, it is longer, no hands were stayed on Sodom, but America, the West, the world, it is different, this portion means, it was not a fast E.L.E. event, and than it was quickly done with, it means the lords hand of judgment came on his people, but was not lifted.

This prophetic burden is not an easy burden, to speak truth may cause you one day to lose your life, would this not be the time as Joel’s book spoke of for such a holy, consecrated call to assembly.

Joe 1:13  Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

Joe 1:14  Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,

Joe 1:15  Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Where are the weeping people of the lord? Where is the holy assembly that is taking place where the people of the lord cry unto the LORD.

Joe 1:19 O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field.

Joe 1:20 The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

This is happening right now, in America, where is the weeping, what will it take to energize your holy, humble God fearing, weeping prayer?

Joe 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

Reader the trumpet has been blasting, the alarm has been sounding, and who cares, who believes, who weeps?

Joe 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Joe 2:16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Joe 2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

Where is the call? Why are the prayer warriors sitting idle, where are the helpers, the givers, the ones that have any burden at all.

 We are in these exact days right now, yet so little care, so little concern, so little anguish, just dry eyes glued to your idols, and your own life.

 You know a tree by it's fruit, of late I have seen only barren trees, the lack of anyone that cares about those who have a burden, those on front lines that are weeping between the porch and alter, the spiritual Josephs that have heard and trying to set up things for the head in sand ones, for the coming famine, where is the love, the giving, the burden, the care.

It is time to arise from sleep, it is high time to arise from slumber, awake, awake my people and weep, get my heartbeat, get my burden. I know and see first handed, and it brings more anguish, more tears as I lament over the judgment and blindness of the lord’s people.

THE EYE of THE LORD-by David Wilkerson

While in prayer today, the Holy Spirit directed me to Psalm
33. The Spirit whispered to my inner man that there were
three nuggets of truth I should share with you in this
portion of Scripture. They are as follows:

1. "Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him,
upon them that hope in his mercy; to deliver their soul
from death, and to keep them alive in famine" (Psalm
33:18-19). Notice the admonitions: "Fear him." "Hope in
his mercy." The word "fear" here does not refer to a
slavish, cowering fear. Rather, it speaks of the awesome
awe of his great mercy to even the worst of sinners.

Last night I was brought to tears after counseling a
Christian brother who had fallen into an old sin. He had
consequently fallen into deep depression, insisting that
God was punishing him, getting even for his transgression.
I pleaded with him to hope in God's mercy - that God was
not mad at him, because the Lord in his everlasting mercy
never turns away from any of his hurting, repentant
children.

God is your keeper. He will keep you from spiritual death.
He will keep you alive in times of spiritual famine - if
you will fully believe and hope in his mercy.

2. "Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our
shield" (33:20). Verses 13-14 of this Psalm tell us, "The
Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the
inhabitants of the earth."

As we walk with Jesus, there is not a moment in our lives
when his eye strays from us. All things are open to his
sight. The problem is, we do not really believe this. In
times of deep affliction, we sometimes think he could not
be focused on us and that there must be something missing
in our theology. Otherwise, we reason, "Why have I hurt so
badly for so long? Why is my cry not being heard?"

What do we do when we can't see a way out - when we reach a
dead end where there seems to be no answers - and we find
ourselves at wit's end? Verse 33 answers us: "Our soul
waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield." This
may sound like unworkable theology, but it is not. In
fact, this is the only way out of any and all troubling
times: to wait in confidence that God's eye is ever on us.
He will come through in his time, which will prove to be
the right time.

3. "Our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted
in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
according as we hope in thee" (33:21-22).

Recently, I proved this passage true. I was called to
settle a dispute that seemed humanly impossible to solve.
I set my heart to wholly trust God to do the work - to give
me words and to send the Holy Spirit to move the hearts of
those involved. At first, it seemed like everything would
fall apart. But I waited, trusting. When I left, the
issues were still unsolved - but still I waited in faith.
Later that night, I was called. Those at odds had fallen
on their knees and repented, and a great miracle happened
before the day ended.

Faith works. And waiting with rejoicing works miracles.

The Only Thing In The Middle Of The Road Is Yellow Stripes And Dead Armadillos!

Are You Willing to Take a Risk of Faith? By Rylisms

The title made me laugh and the message is great. I will paste the devotion in first and elaborate what I have for you today.

She was thinking to herself, “If I can just put a finger on his robe, I’ll get well.” Jesus turned–caught her at it. Then he reassured her: “Courage, daughter. You took a risk of faith, and now you’re well.” (Mat_9:21-22, The Message)

The status quo requires no risk. Nothing ventured; nothing gained. But excellence, by its very nature, requires that you break out of the pack and pull away from the common and ordinary, shaking off the mundane and mediocre. Hey, the only thing in the middle of the road is yellow stripes and dead armadillos!

The woman knew that there was healing power working in and through Jesus, so much that if she could only place her finger upon his robe – she would be made whole. But she was unclean, and He a Rabbi. She was a woman; He a man. To violate the social protocol could result in her being stoned by the religious zealots of the day.

She took a risk of faith – and it paid off huge!

It has been said many times, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” What this means, then, is if you want something that you’ve never had before, you must be willing to do something that you’ve never done before. And that is where RISK comes into the equation.

Noah built a boat in the middle of a desert —that was a risk. Abraham left his home and went out, not knowing where he was going – that was a risk. Moses forsook the security of Pharaoh’s palace, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God —that was a risk.

Prayed to God though the king had decreed death to any who dared do so—that was a risk. David faced a giant in the open field of battle—that was a risk. John the Baptist confronted the sins of King Herod—that was a risk. Peter walked on water—that was a risk. Paul openly declared to Caesar himself that Jesus Christ is Lord—that was a risk.

These were men of whom the world was not worthy. These are the fathers of our Faith, and we are their sons and daughters. Now it is our turn. Now we have the opportunity and the abilities to not only follow in their steps but to go beyond where they themselves were able to go. But it will require a definite dose of vision, passion, discipline, and risk.

Are you willing to take that leap?

The difference between success and failure may come down to this; one decided to take a risk, while the other chose to take a rest.

The main points I see are as follows;

1. You must be willing to do something that you've never done before.

All we do for the Lord carries with it a risk, that is the key word in the whole devotion, the word 'Risk'.

The word risk defined will make this more clear.

Risk is the potential of gaining or losing something of value. Values (such as physical health, social status, emotional well-being, or financial wealth) can be gained or lost when taking risk resulting from a given action or inaction, foreseen or unforeseen. you must be willing to do something that you’ve never done before. Uncertainty is a potential, unpredictable, and uncontrollable outcome; risk is a consequence of action taken in spite of uncertainty.~Wikipedia

This is why so few will take a risk for our Lord. Many are going five miles an hour and are happy with it. This is not a foolish risk, the fool takes many unwise risks, this is 100% different. We do something in faith, we take a leap of faith not knowing if we will lose our head on a chopping block. Extreme dangerous sports carry a risk, but in my opinion, it is foolish to do something extreme for the thrill, thrill seekers could be dead in a minute.

I am talking about a holy risk, not a foolish risk.

2. You must be willing to do something that you’ve never done before.
Corrie Ten Boom took a risk to save the persecuted Jews, we know the outcome. It was of the Lord, we learn a lot from this dear saint. She took a Holy risk and she paid for it.
She said she would do it all over, that is amazing. If we know the outcome or fear the outcome of a thing, we will be idle and do nothing because most do not want to lose anything. In these dark days just saying 'Jesus is the only way to Jehovah God' could cause one to go to jail, not being politically correct. Persecution is already taking place today in this apostate world. Are you willing to do something you have never done before?
Yes, it can cause fear, this is normal, but the leap of faith is called for. Faith in itself can not be explained, it can not be seen, but it's real. Faith is required to take a holy risk, faith and risk go together.

3.But it will require a definite dose of vision, passion, discipline, and risk.
Doing something we have never done before calls for;
Vision-Passion-Discipline-Risk.
We must have vision this comes from the Lord and not the flesh. This will call for passion, do you have a passion for what you do, we do all things as unto the Lord. Passion about almost anything is missing now days. O' how we need more passion for our lord and discipline to do what our Lord says to do. Yes, its a risk, yes it can be a scary, but passion, faith, obedience, that is the risk. Do we honestly take a risk and obey the Lord on a matter that we have no idea where it will take us, we just do as Abraham, walk and not know where we are going, but the Lord said go and he started his unknown journey, that is a risk, that is out of our comfort zone, O' but how blessed he was because he obeyed and walked by faith.

Beloved, all we do for the Lord is a risk, we could lose everything, Paul wrote 'I count the loss of all things as dung, that I may know the excellency of Christ Jesus'.

In my life, most of what I do is a risk, but I strive to obey, and simply leave the results with the Lord.
The saying, 'I have nothing to lose' is not a good way to take a true holy risk, if you have much to lose, that is where the Holy risk comes in.

We all make mistakes, I do, I am a sinner saved by grace, I do not always obey right away, but after the lords, heavy hand remains I cave in and obey, the Lord always wins every argument we may have. LOL.

It is time to take the leap of faith, Whatever the Lord has been telling you to do should not be put off, it is one minute before midnight. We do not know what may happen tomorrow, this is why Jesus said 'take no thought, do not be anxious', all our tomorrows are in his hand, I can not think of a better place to be.

I end with what the title means.

The Only Thing In The Middle Of The Road Is Yellow Stripes And Dead Armadillos!

Living in the safe zone, living in the middle of our roads, not taking a stand for Jesus will make us no better than a dead Armadillo, always remember, a living dog is better than a dead lion. If you are alive, you can take that Holy Risk today, may it be so with all of us.

Condemnation or Repentance- The Word Repent A Deeper Look, It Is Good News

I have written, and preached some strong words, I have said before, it is not legalism, condemnation, or judgment, but conviction, I hope. This was the norm many years ago, now it is looked down upon, by liberal thinking, well-meaning Christians that are big on love, unity, separate beliefs, I understand that, but the word does not change. The word cuts like a knife for a reason, and believe it or not it is part of the Good News, Repent, repent, repent, is step one in the good news, you have to swallow a bitter pill before the honey of spiritual blessing flows form your life.

We all make mistakes, I am no more than a sinner, like you, saved by grace, but a mouth piece for the lord, I have yielded myself and it has come with a high price tag. ( for all that choose to live Godly in Christ Jesus WILL suffer persecution).

The condemnation, hell, issue is never the lords intent in a hard message, it is always to lead someone to, or back to the real true path.

The lord wills that all men would be saved, the son of man came not to destroy men, but save men's lives, part of this is by the word of the lord read, or heard preached under the anointing and conviction. In EZEK ch 3 and CH 33 , we read the whole deal, the way it all works, read those chapters and you will understand where I am coming from, and others who preach and teach truth.

To the sinner, seeker, Jesus was kind, to the Pharisee, as our modern day Christian can be called, (some not all), but most. Jesus spoke very hard, to those, and thus I do to Christians because they claim to know the truth and confess Jesus, but do not do the things he said.

I will give you an example of why the bible says hate of the poor is an abomination to the lord, as I know some disagreed with that, well we have the word on this matter.

Eze 18:12 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,

Eze 18:13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

The poor, being mistreated is listed right in there with idolatry and other sins, and it is called an abomination.

The lord speaks hard sometimes to try to reach those that confess his name, but do not walk the walk, in this same chapter you will see the heart of the lord, he wants all to be made restored, all to come back to their first love, all to be made clean.

Eze 18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

Eze 18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

Did you get that part, it is good news, not bad news, not condemnation, Eze 18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:

Yes, as far as the east to the west, this is the heart of the lord in a hard word, in a warning, so a seed of good news and restoration can be planted and watered. EZE. has a few more verses in this chapter, read it all, it is very much like ch 3 and 33 it shows the loving father heart of our lord.

Eze 18:27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.

Eze 18:28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

Eze 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

Eze 18:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Eze 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Our loving father is not sadistic, many say, ' how could a loving God allow all this, the suffering of children, the death of the innocent, good people being sick unto death" it is the fall of Adam that caused this, also the stuff sprayed on us, what we eat, pollution the list goes on, man made death, not the heart of a loving father.

Next time when you hear a strong word from me, or another servant , consider this, it is a call, it is our job and it is the job of all to warn. The lord has no pleasure in death, no pleasure in the Judgments being poured out, no pleasure in the death of America, no please at all. It is a hard word indeed, but looking beyond , or deeper into hard words , as I have been showing in this Chapter, you will see the Good news, you will see the love of the father.

Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Do you see the message, those who the lord loves he Chastises, it is the love of the lord, it is part of the Good news, and as I wrote, the good news starts with the word repent, coming back to the lord starts with the word repent, being restored starts with the word repent, and thus the word repent is the good news, we have the chance by the blood of Christ to repent, that is good news, to go from death to life, by Jesus blood, by repentance, and sometimes it comes by a strong word. That is the Good News
