Potentially Spiritually And Mentally Enslaving Ism’s

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:1-5

Beautiful Eulogy Ft Lee Green – Surrender
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcWnq6-WCIo&list=PL4183BF187DA68CE5

LYRICS:
(Lee Green)
It’s the battle of ages, if we ever could try to measure
the terror that’s evident then it would shatter the cages,
in the balance of wages. That this payment, sin shackled
and chained in, to the back of our brain and we acting
insane every action is vein as we grapple for change and
then prove that we’re trapped in enslavement. The devil
wants our bellies full to consume earth then waste it. Not
knowing that we feed to die like the cattle that grazes.
See we were made to crave, I believe that it’s true. Adam
was a slave of love before he had a clue. See we do what
we like because we like what we do. Father God change our
wants so we are slaves to you.

(Odd Thomas)
This is pragmatic axiom. We were born into a system automatic
slaves and addicts and whether you believe it is just
a matter of whether you consider it compatible or problematic.
But if you honestly acknowledge the logical conclusion
for you to choose your destiny is a delusion. Because
when you examine the general system of living it proves
who’s your true master and who your enslaved to. It’s true
that since the fall we’ve all been taught false view of
freedom and a rebellious mind recoils and is inclined to
deny him and bind him with the ties of treason. Either
rebellion or righteousness, both lead to the inescapable
mark of eternal life or death. Bound to sin or bound to
obey either way were both slaves one kills one saves.

(Braille)
Dear descendants of Adam and Eve, we’ve been contaminated with a disease.
The infiltration of sin is deep in our nature,
peel back the layers. It’s no secret, even the naked eye can see it
under careful examination, no exaggeration
needed. These are exact statements, we are dead in our offenses.
We can’t pay penance with petty possessions. No exceptions
or exemptions will be made.
Nothing independent of true repentance and redemption.
Deserving the death sentence,
we earned it by our own merits. Inherited from our parents, pride and arrogance.
Endlessly in error is the best way to describe our rebellious lives as blind derelicts.
On what basis should we escape judgement and condemnation?
If we get graded on a curve who is worthy of God’s favor?
If he is righteous and just — and the wages of sin is death,
the only way for us to live is if someone perfect dies for us.
How else can the spiritually lifeless rise from dust?
From the worst to the least of sinners — the truth hurts
but let it simmer until your soul surrenders control.
The goal of faith is to believe that we need to be saved,
and then rejoice knowing that our savior came! Died in our place, and
his sinless life was raised from the grave.
Our sin is death, Christ is life, either way all of us are slaves.
One kills, one saves

Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.
Romans 6:18

Blessings and grace to you all,

To Whom Do You Belong?

There once was a man who owned a reform school in the heart of England who came across a boy that he tried everything to reform.

He tried the hard treatment; locking him up with little food or water for hours and sometimes days at a time…. It didn’t work.

He tried the soft treatment; giving him luxury, kindness and the niceties of this world… It didn’t work.

Nothing changed him; he remained a rebel.

One day, at the end of his rope, he called the boy into his office and told him that he has one last idea left, but he could not do it unless the boy consented freely of his own will.

He asked the boy if he could adopt him and call him His son.

He said to him, “you will come and live in my house and be my child and carry my name, so that any time you get into trouble again, it will be my name that you drag down from now on”

He asked him one more time, “Will you allow me to adopt you?”

The boy replied “Yes”

Now, if i told you that from that day forward the boy no longer got into trouble all of his days, I would be lying to you.

But, if I told you that from that day forward, he no longer wanted to get into trouble, well, then I’d be telling you the truth.

This story is the story of every true Bible believing Christian who seeks to be saved from their sins. Those who believe are not all of a sudden perfect in themselves, nor are they free to do as they please, but because they believe, by the glorious grace of God we have God’s Holy Spirit to guide us to be made perfect like the image of Jesus, and He will guide our steps all of our days.
 
And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins
Matthew 1:21
 
If you declare with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved
Romans 10:9
 

The Doctrine of Adoption

He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will
Ephesians 1:5

To redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God
Galatians 4:5-7

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him
1 John 3:1

For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith
Galatians 3:26

This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring
Romans 9:8

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God
Ephesians 2:19

Truly I tell you, I wish you all grace brothers and sisters, in Christ

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Revelation 21:8

 

He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.
Romans 2:6-8

 

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord
Romans 6:23

 

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:12

 

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved
Romans 10:9

 

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast
Ephesians 2:8-9
 
 
People may think what they might and say what they will…. I’m sure this path is not a popular one. But just know that after all that God made clear to my eyes; I am not ashamed to say that I’m praying for you all…
 
 
Grace and God Bless,

United Nations Multifaith Occult Practices

In the early 1950’s, Dag Hammarskjold, second Secretary-General of the United Nations, spearheaded a campaign, to revamp a prayer room in the New York UN Headquarters.

Dag decided that since the members of the body of the United Nations were part of numerous religious backgrounds, that there would be a conflict in trying to create a prayer room that was accomodating to all, so in his attempt to resolve this issue in a way that was appeasing to man, rather than to our Lord Jesus Christ, he would resolve the issue by placing an idol in the middle of a trapezoidal room that the men of any religious background could look upon and imagine the God of their choice in whom they served to worship.

In his note to visitors of the Meditation Room, Hammarskjold said this:

“But the stone in the middle of the room has more to tell us. We may see it as an altar empty not because there is no God, not because it is an altar to an unknown god, but because it is dedicated to the God whom man worships under many names and in many forms”

I guess he never read the scriptures that state:

God is Spirit, and his worshippers must worship in the Spirit and in truth
John 4:24

The “spirituality” promoted in the UN Meditation Room is the same as that promoted by many of the UN’s influences; the coming of a universal religion to satisfy all religions but is not what is taught in the Word of God found in the Bible.

This certainly comes as an insult to any true Bible believing Christian who believe in God’s second commandment:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in the heaven above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exodus 20:4

Hints of the Occult

The main features of this room are its trapezoidal shape, its lighting, and its decoration: A mural and a large block of iron. Texe Marrs explains the occult nature of these features:

“The best way to comprehend what the all-seeing eye represents is to examine the architecture of the Mediatation Room of the UN Building in New York City. The Meditation Room is.. shaped as a pyramid without a capstone. Inside, the room is dimly lit, but coming from the ceiling is a narrow but concentrated pinpoint beam oflight which radiates down to a bleak stone altar.

On the wall straight ahead is a modernistic mural that is dynamically endowed with occult symbolism, containing twenty-seven triangles in various configurations, a mixture of black and white and colored backgrounds, and a snake-like vertical line. At the center is the all-seeing eye which grips the millions of annual visitors with its stark, beconing image of suspicion.”

UN-Meditation-Room

The trapezoid is of interest because of its dark spiritual connections. Anton Lavey, the founder of the Church of Satan, refers to an occult principle know as the “law of the trapezoid” and that, the middle order of the satanic brotherhood is called “The Order of the Trapezoid”

Idolatry, satanic symbolism, the “all-seeing eye”, and intentions to engage in practices that lead people away from serving the real God in their own attempts to create a united religion of their own, is just another indication of man’s belief that in eating from the Tree of Knowledge as the serpent promised them, “they will become like god”. and be able to make decisions of their own.

Abomination – A thing that causes disgust or hatred

Maybe those with their bible’s handy would like to refer to the story of Hezekiah in 2 Kings 18.

In the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, Hezekiah son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother’s name was Abijah daughter of Zechariah. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father David had done. He removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles. He broke into pieces the bronze snake Moses had made, for up to that time the Israelites had been burning incense to it. (It was called Nehushtan.)

Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him. He held fast to the Lord and did not stop following him; he kept the commands the Lord had given Moses. And the Lord was with him; he was successful in whatever he undertook. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him. From watchtower to fortified city, he defeated the Philistines, as far as Gaza and its territory.
2 Kings 18:1-7

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the LORD is
Ephesians 5:16

Grace to you all and God bless,

 

Salvation 101 – Left behind

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved
Acts 4:12

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling
Philippians 2:12

Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them
John 14:21

 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved
Romans 10:9-12

A Parable for “Christians”

There once was two debtors who owed the same creditor money that they were unable to pay

The first one owed $50

The second owed $50,000

They both came to the creditor unable to pay their debt and asked if something could be done about payment; either a payment plan, or terms, or an extension.

The creditor looked at them both lovingly with sympathy and said: “Because you came to me in earnest honesty, today, I cancel both debts completely! If you come and follow me, not only will I forgive your future debts so that you may always live in freedom, but you will learn how to avoid incurring debts as well!”

 

The man who owed the $50,000 immediately said “I will follow you”

The man who owed $50 said “Ummm, I think I’ll be okay to not incur any debts on my own” and went his way

 

 

Which of the two do you think have a certain future of being debt free?

 

 

Now imagine the debt is sin, the creditor is Jesus, and the future is your place in Heaven….

Would you still choose to do it on your own?

 

 

Jesus stood and cried out, saying “If anyone is thirsty,let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water”‘
John 7:37-38

 

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6
