Wednesday, July 1, 2015, 8:00 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind this song:
Worthy is the Lamb / Darlene Zschech / Hillsong United
Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Crown Him now with many crowns
He reign victorious
High and lifted up
Jesus Son of God…
Wednesday, July 1, 2015, 12:54 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song, “To Be Like Him.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read 2 Timothy 3 (NASB).
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also. ~ 2 Tim. 3:1-9
In Obama’s eulogy of Rev. Pinckney, of “Mother Emanuel” AME Church, on June 26, 2015, he said: “There’s no better example of this tradition than Mother Emanuel, a church built on blacks seeking liberty, BURNED TO THE GROUND because its founders sought to end slavery, ONLY TO RISE UP AGAIN, A PHOENIX FROM THESE ASHES.”
A phoenix rising from the ashes is symbolic of this New World Order “beast” rising from the ashes of the former (old) order of things – the old order which will be destroyed and is being destroyed by this “beast” right now. Out of the ashes of the church of the past will rise this New World Order one-world all-inclusive religion which stands for nothing of God and of Christ, but of self-effort to improve the planet and to make the world a “better place” for us all to live, where no one steps on anyone else’s toes, so to speak. That is what this is really all about, and the sooner we get this, the better. Christian persecution has come to America, and it has come through our own leaders, who are part of this “beast” N.W.O.
In the past two weeks, six black churches have experienced fires here in the USA, according to this news article (link below). This is no accident. If you have paid attention to world news at all in the past 4 (+) years, and you have been discerning, at all, concerning what is truly going on across the globe, you will realize that what is presently taking place in America fits the M.O. (modus operandi) of this New World Order “Beast” to a T. See this news article about these church fires:
This is not about persecution of blacks, per se, but it is about power, rule, dictatorship, and a coup of the republic of these United States of America, such as we, as US citizens, have come to know in our lifetime. It is also about the destruction of the true church, the body of Christ, for the purpose of bringing us into this all-inclusive one-world religion that doesn’t really stand for anything other than destroying the gospel of Jesus Christ. The symbolism is all over the place in Obama’s eulogy, and in this news article about these church fires.
The name Immanuel (see reference to “Emanuel,” name of church in Charleston), for instance, was a name which was prophesied of Jesus Christ by Isaiah, the prophet of God (See: Isaiah 7:14). The name means “with us is God.” The disciple John called Jesus “The Word,” who was with God in the beginning, and who was God, and who created all things which were created. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (Jn. 1:14). In Paul’s letter to the Philippian church he said this about Jesus Christ:
“…who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:6-11).
So, this is not an attack on black churches because people are prejudice against them, per se, although I can’t say that does not enter into this at all, but this is a message to the whole church here in America (the church in the west), as well as to the church across the globe. Obama announced what is to take place in his eulogy, and we are now seeing it in the works. This is an attack against Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and it is against his people, the saints of God, who have died with Christ to sin, and have been resurrected with Christ to new lives, free from slavery to sin and free to live for righteousness. You see, they are using the history of slavery to give the church a message, but not a message about blacks in slavery to slave owners, but about sinners who were enslaved by sin who have been set free by the blood of Christ shed for our sins.
Why was “Mother Emanuel” burned to the ground many years ago? – Because its founders sought to end slavery. And, why are Christians being persecuted throughout the globe? Because Jesus Christ died to free slaves, and because he set slaves free, and because followers of Christ are spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be set free from slavery, too. And, that is why these churches are being burned, because Satan hates Jesus Christ, and because he hates Christ’s followers who are spreading the good news of freedom from slavery, and because he hates the message of the gospel – a message of freedom from slavery to sin, and he wants to STOP that message! And, that is what this is about. And, so the N.W.O. “beast” is ordering these fires, to give a message, but also to stir up racial hatred and violence (or to fake it), so that they will have an excuse to initiate laws against “hate crimes,” which will include laws against the spreading of the gospel.
The only church named in this news article, that I noticed, other than Emanuel, which strangely enough they consistently left off the name “Mother” from the name, in this article, was that of Mount Zion AME Church. So, who or what is Mount Zion today? Mount Zion is God/Jesus Christ and his church, the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. It is no longer a physical place, but a spiritual place (See: Ro. 9:33; Heb. 12:22-24; 1 Pet. 2:6 and Rev. 14:1). So, again, the message is clear here. They are going after God/Jesus Christ and his church to destroy her and the gospel, to burn her to the ground, and out of the ashes will arise this New World Order “Beast” (See: Rev. 13) and its global religion, which does not include the one and only God, and Jesus Christ as our one and only Savior, and it does not include the gospel of salvation according to Jesus Christ and his apostles.
They want the church of Jesus Christ to lose its Holy Spirit fire. They want a lukewarm church that is neither hot nor cold for Christ and his gospel. They want the church to be pleasantly alluring to the sinful world around them. The institutional church has been discarding (pushing away) serious followers of Christ for years now, so that they can be just that. They target people who know little of God and his word so that they can mold them into man’s image, not God’s. And, church leaders are being taught to get rid of those of us who hold to “strong convictions” with regard to God’s word, so that we don’t get in the way of their human business plans and marketing schemes. They want a fleshly church, and they have produced one here in America, for sure. They want Christians so busy with social media, the internet, TV, movies, games and the like that they don’t have time for God, and thus they are not much use at all for God’s kingdom work. Their plan is working obviously.
In other words, all that is happening with these churches is all about a union, an alliance of nations and religions which have come together and are coming together, along with bankers and CEOs of corporations, and the Elite of the World, i.e. the wealthy and powerful. And, this “Union” is global, and it is this “beast” or it will culminate in this “beast,” i.e. we may not see this beast yet in its final form, but it is rising, and it is taking over the world, and it is conquering the saints of Almighty God, and it is here in America, and it is coming after us, the true church of the living God. We, the saints of God, stand in the way of this beast progressing to its goal of ultimate world domination, so we must be removed.
Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me! Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Tim. 3:10-17
To Be Like Him / An Original Work
March 16, 2014 / Based off Scripture
Crucified you are with Jesus.
To be like Him, oh, you’ll be,
Because He died at Calv’ry,
So from sin you’d be free.
Oh, what joy He brings into your life,
Giving life with Him endlessly.
Oh, what plans He has for your life.
Share the gospel faithfully.
Show the people He loves them.
Now His witness you’ll be.
Tell the world of sin about Jesus,
How He died for them on a tree.
Purifying hearts, He saves them,
Who believe on Christ, God’s Son.
Turning now from their idols,
New lives they have begun.
Jesus saves from sin; we’re forgiven.
Over sin, the vict’ry He won!
When He comes again to take us
To be with Him evermore,
There will be no more crying.
Gladness will be in store.
Heavens joys will now overtake us:
We’ll be with our Lord evermore.
