Understanding “love and Love”

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve written anything, but I’ve been busy recording music and haven’t really had anything to write about.

There has been a great confusion over what love actually is. Is love accepting anyone for who they are? Is love bending over backwards for people? Is love simply having a warm feeling of self-righteousness?

The main point to understand is that there is love, and there is Love. They are completely different and totally opposite, but they get painted in the same light.

Christian love is this: loving the Lord Jesus Christ with all one’s being, and therefore want good to befall your neighbor as much as your own self. It’s a charitable love, brotherly love. Christian love is not sexual, nor selfish. The simplest way I can put it is like this: Christian love is to want to give, to be charitable, and to sacrifice your own self for the well-being of others (i.e. God sacrificing the Lamb, because he loved the world).

The other is Love, and that is a name. I was going to mention how “agape” was the Christian term for love because it was derived from charity, but I read this article and it actually makes a great point for my other argument.

Saul Lieberman, a Rabbi, was talking about agape in the context of an old quote, but had this to say about it: “It seems quite certain to me that גפה דרומי really means agape of Rome, but refers not to some obscure love of Rome, but to the famous goddess – Isis, who was called Agape.”

And suddenly we are talking about a “goddess”.

This unclean spirit, who they call Agape and Isis, is called Ashtoreth. This is the spirit of Love. It is the spirit of sex, lust, desire, rape, deviancy, pornography, jealousy, and pretty much all sexual contexts. This is the same BABYLON the GREAT that makes all the merchants filthy rich. And as we all know sex sells.

This is the great confusion in this world. We see now, especially with the massive liberal movement in the young, an increasing confusion of morality. These people, generally, are rabidly anti-christian, having been denied a chance to find God by the media, music, and school. Peer pressured into a belief system that preaches Love, but is actually hate.

These are the children of a wicked generation. Their parents were not holy, either, having been tempted by the world, not holding their ground or their faith.

This is now: “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

This is a generation that hates love, and loves hate. They stand in the guise of holiness, using a twisted definition of love to justify a wicked campaign that has not yet, but absolutely will, result in the end of Christianity.

I beseech you to listen and remember that soon a time is going to come when the abomination of desolation will stand in the holy place. Where wickedness will stand firmly where God used to be. Where all filth and evil and abominations will be hearkened as true holiness. It is the raising up of the church of man and the destruction of the temple of God. These people will no longer tolerate Christians to exist in their world. When the time is revealed, and this action is known (I pray that we all can see it, because it still eludes me what the physical sign may be) I ask that you remember what Christ himself said:

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:15-24).

If anyone tells you that it is absurd to believe these are the end times, remember Noah.

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark” (Matthew 24:38).

Even until the day he returns, many, many people are going to think it’s just another day. It’s an easy trap to fall into, to believe the day will never come. I warn you, though, that these are the end of days. This is the final chapter. If we are lucky we might have another ten years, most likely less. I do not claim to know that day or hour, but as with the seasons, we can see the leaves start to change color and fall from the trees. I tell you, and I pray you believe, that it is soon. Sooner that you may want to believe.

May Jesus Christ be with you always, in sorrow and in joy.

Thank you for reading.

Under Pressure: Standing Your Ground

“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9).

As a Christian, there is no doctrine that says I must accept or support cultures or religions that are sinful. The truth is that false religions, such as Islam all the way to Atheism (the religion of science) and even Liberalism (which is pure Anti-Christ), are always rooted in some kind of darkness. This is why I can say I love all people, but denounce false religions and wicked cultures. I can love the individual, but despise their ideology.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Bob Dylan sang a long time ago about how, while it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord, you have to serve somebody. This is truer than people want to accept.

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Matthew 6:24).

The simple point of this is clear: if you do not serve Christ and crucify your flesh, then you serve your flesh. You cannot say, “Oh, so-and-so is a good person deep down” because if he or she were truly worthy, they would hear the call.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).

People are people, and simply living life without breaking too many laws is not good enough. Most people do that already. Christ talked about how loving your friend is no great feat, because even the wicked love their friends. The really impressive task is to love your enemy. To love those that hate and despise you. Not being a criminal is not good enough to enter into the kingdom of God.

Then, search yourself. Are you being the best you can be? Are you putting God first and yourself last? And have you accepted some cultural “truth” that conflicts directly with what Christ himself asked of us?

Don’t be bullied into accepting lies and abominations as “human rights” against your better judgement. Stand your ground in your heart and reject the lies that are being sold right now. I promise, brethren, you are not alone in this fight. The noose of the world is tightening around the neck of all righteousness. All those that walk in light see the darkness growing and the evil spreading.

Taking the Name of The Lord in Vain

There has been a vital misunderstanding among the Christians about the meaning of the third commandment. It has been widely accepted that this law is talking about not using “Jesus Christ” or “God” as an expletive.

The truth is that this is not what the commandment is talking about at all, and the actual meaning is so much more important.

It’s like a company employee: your actions reflect back on the whole of the company when you represent the company. When do you represent the Lord? Here is what Jesus said:

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).

As someone who has taken on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are his PR agent. What you say to people, especially those who know you are Christian, reflects back at him and can give him a poor image.

The world waxes worse and worse. The great falling away has already happened. For the few of us left who carry the torch of Christ, we are the minority. This brings me to my main point: most “Christians” do not serve Jesus Christ, but serve their own lust and greed. These people are the ones who have allowed the wicked to rise. Satan has ensnared many to atheism by pointing at the gluttonous, filthy, hypocritical “Christians”. These people are misrepresenting Jesus Christ, who was, and is, perfect.

Ultimately, my point is simple: if you are a Christian, you have taken up a heavy burden of proof. You must act right and represent the Lord accurately. When you act in sin and hate, you don’t just affect yourself, but all those who would see you. Your actions have consequences and there’s no accounting for how many will be lost due to them.

So, going forward, keep in mind the importance of representation. Those who call themselves Christians, even those who have forsaken him, will have to stand before him one day and account for their deeds done in the name of God.

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

Understanding the Walk

I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately, and a line stood out to me about the “supermarket of salvation”. I’ll leave a link to the song at the end, but this inspired me to address an important point about Christianity.

The metaphor goes something like this: for the true Christian, the road to finding Jesus is long, difficult, and bizarre. It’s like an explorer searching ancient caverns for something extremely hidden and difficult to acquire.

Parallel that to the average “Christian”. There is no sacrifice, no keeping of the law, and there is no real difference between them and the heathen. These people are the shoppers in the supermarket of salvation. They pick the religion that suits them, rather than dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ and his law.

My point being that if you mold your religion and beliefs around your life, your friends, and your convenience, then you are simply an atheist in denial. On the other hand, if you put away sin, in all its forms, and force yourself to change to suit his wants, then you are a worthy servant and will be rewarded with the Holy Ghost and eternal life.

You cannot serve God and mammon.

How To Get Saved

There is a lot of different interpretation and ideas about how salvation works. I’m writing this today to put that to rest. For those reading, if you want to live forever with Christ, you need to do what follows. If you already have, then you are among the blessed. If you do not believe or desire salvation, then this isn’t for you.

Salvation is a 3 part process:

  1. Repentance: This is the promise to the Lord. It’s a promise of change and a promise of servitude. When you repent, you put your old ways behind, ask for a clean start, and take up your cross to follow him. This must be done honestly and before baptism.
  2. Baptism of Water: The last physical step. One must be baptised completely in water in the name of JESUS CHRIST. I’ve seen a lot of Christians declare they were baptised in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost… This doesn’t work. The name of the Father is Jesus Christ, the name of the son is Jesus Christ, and the name of the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ. There is one God, and his name is Jesus Christ. Do not use titles in the baptism, but his only name: JESUS CHRIST.
  3. Baptism of Fire: The most confused part of the baptism is about the Holy Ghost. The fact is that you do not get the Holy Ghost when you are baptised. Granted, yes: Jesus did receive the Holy Spirit immediately after baptism, but you are not Jesus. We all walk in sin and have tasted of darkness. We all have flaws we have to overcome and evils in our flesh we must triumph over. This is a long and difficult road, we must strive to become perfect. Once you have been baptised, you must then suffer for his name, strive to please him, and seek the spirit continually. Many Christians have been baptised in a moment of fervor, and lost their way… This is taking the name of the Lord in vain. Don’t pledge to follow him if you aren’t going to follow through. Even still, it’s better to lose your way and seek him out again then to forsake him completely. Sins can be forgiven (save for blasphemy), but if you don’t seek him you won’t find him.

Lastly, I want to give a metaphor to help explain the process. Repentance and baptism is like a marriage proposal. One asks the Lord to enter into an eternal union. Then, the Lord, being asked, looks and sees what is there. When he decides you are worthy, then the marriage takes place, and the spirit of God enters in. This can take days, weeks, months, or even years for many people. It’s better to seek him for many years and win his spirit, than to fail completely.

Remember also, that what is once won, is won. The seal of God is forever. It’s not possible to lose it once it is gained. Understand, also that once it is gained, you are no longer human. You are a new creature, and being such, will begin to change and become more.

It’s a hard road, full of tears, but it’s worth it all in the end.

“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire” (Matthew 3:11).

More About Baal

Baal is the spirit of sickness, hate, anger, and sacrifice.

These spirits, like Baal, have been consistently worshipped since the time of the Old Testament. He has had many different names, like Moloch and Osiris, but I believe they are talking about the same spirit.

In all the translations, though, one point is consistent: his name. Baal literally means “lord”, while Moloch means “king”.

“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken. And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under. And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded. And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there” (1 Kings 18:21-40).

Thoughts on Trump

In this moment of uncertainty, one thing is clear: times are changing. I do not know if Trump will play a vital role in the end times or not, although I do believe if he does, it is as a proxy for something much worse than himself, he simply being a tool and a voice.

Personally, this passage comes to mind regarding him:

“And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries” (Daniel 11:21).

After reading twitter all morning it’s clear that he is easily the most hated and reviled president-elect we have ever had (see #NotMyPresident). Regardless, he has won the vote and will come to power in January…

Another, final thought: Trump said that “now it’s time to bind the wounds of division, come together as one people.” That reminds me of this:

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).

Do I think Trump is the beast? He may be involved, but I don’t believe he is the actual Beast. He may pass laws, he may do terrible things, but he is not that.

Regardless, though, these are the end times. No matter what happens, brethren, we must keep our faith and keep the watch, because dark times are approaching.

And remember: “…by peace [he] shall destroy many…” (Daniel 8:25).

EDIT: I’ve come to believe that Trump is an instigator. I think his purpose is to invoke a regime change, which will lead directly into the tribulation.

Short version is that it seems like Trump may cause the Left push back hard against what he stands for, ultimately targeting religion.

This is only a theory and could be wrong. I just wanted to share my thoughts.

 

Edit 2: After watching his inauguration, my thoughts turn again toward Daniel 11. Stay cautious. I do believe he will be key in the coming years…

Be aware and remember.

The Seven Seals

There are two schools of thought in regards to the horsemen: 1) That they represent kingdoms and events over the course of the new testament (post-crucifixion to now), or 2) that they represent a series of events at the end of days. I am subscribed to the latter belief.

I believe that the four horsemen are four “foreigners” to our world. By this I mean that they are fallen angels, who have arrived from elsewhere. The cycle parallels the order in Revelation 12-13.

The first horseman (white horse, bow, crown) would be Satan himself. This parallels the Red Dragon (Revelation 12) chasing the woman through the wilderness. Going forth conquering and to conquer.

The second horseman (red horse, sword, take peace) would be parallel to the Beast from the Sea, which is Wormwood. This is also the little horn of Daniel.

“And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword” (Revelation 6:4).

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months” (Revelation 13:5).

“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things” (Daniel 7:8).

“My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword” (Psalms 57:4).

The bible is clear that the tongue is a sword. We also know that the Beast from the Sea, or Wormwood, is given a mouth to speak great things. This is his great sword: his voice.

The third horseman (black horse, scales, measure of wheat for a penny) would be the False Prophet (Beast from the Earth). This is the angel that fell with the key to the bottomless pit. I believe he arrived (meaning the 3rd seal opened) in 2013.

Lastly, we come to the fourth horseman (Death and Hell) which would be the Image of the Beast, which is the Abomination of Desolation. When the fourth seal opens (and it’s not far down the road), those who believe and will not forsake Christ need to flee.

Jesus himself tells us the vague sequence of events in Matthew 24:6-24.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

This tells us of the events from the 3rd to the 5th seals. The false prophets will arise (which they already have been for a while) and will preach anti-christ doctrine as holy. They already claim the path of righteousness is to forsake religion and join the brotherhood of mankind, all united under the same doctrine of freedom, which is lawlessness. Soon, in the coming years, I believe the Daily Sacrifice will be taken away. As to what that will actually manifest as, I do not know, but I believe when it comes it’ll be clear to His people. Then, as Daniel the prophet said, there will be 1290 days until the Abomination, which will be the opening of the fourth seal and the time when they kill those who believe in Christ. The fifth seal will follow, which is when they kill the rest:

“And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled” (Revelation 6:11).

Then, Christ speaks of the sixth seal:

“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven” (Mark 13:24-27).

Here is the sixth seal from Revelation 6:

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6:12-17).

There are two sets of stars (angels): the third part Satan drew and the rest, which are the Lord’s army. The stars in the sixth seal are the latter.

The seventh seal is the Victory of Jesus Christ over the four horsemen, which are Satan, the Beast, the False Prophet, and the Image.

In short, in the coming years (somewhere from two to five) they will take away our rights to believe how we choose to believe, then after three and a half years from that they will start to extermination all those who don’t have the mark of the beast.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:1-2).

A mark, just like with cattle farmers, is a brand. It is seared into the cattle with a hot iron to show ownership. Those with the Holy Spirit are sealed of God (wearing the name of Christ). Those with the mark essentially have the unholy spirit, which would be the name of the Anti-Christ (the mark of the Beast). In the time of the fourth seal, those who wear the name of Jesus Christ will be slain, except that they understand and know to run.

Finally, after all those that are supposed to be martyred have been, then the Lord will return in the clouds, the four winds will gather together his people, and the 144,000 will be sealed. Then, the army of the Lord will triumph over the wicked.

Let those with an ear to hear, hear. May Jesus Christ open your eyes and guide your hearts. We are entering into the Great Tribulation, I pray that I see you on the other side.

Baal and Ashtoreth

In respect to the idea of demons, spirits, and other such things: they exist.

There are an unimaginable amount of spirits roaming around this world. Some are good, some are neutral, and some are very wicked. In regards to the wicked spirits, there are seven that have immense power and have been worshipped since the time of the Old Testament. I’ve taken to calling these seven the “Earth Spirits.”

The two most prominent (besides Satan), are Baal and Ashtoreth:

Baal – the spirit of anger, hate, and sacrifice.
“And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people” (Numbers 22:41). 

Ashtoreth – the spirit of lust and desire.
“For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites” (1 Kings 11:5).

Thank you for reading, and may Jesus Christ be with you.
