PRAYER

Make an Excuse to PRAY

Today, my pastor, Pastor Dale Meador…took a break on our through the Bible series and preached a great sermon relevant to current events…marriage and the recent Supreme Court OPINION (5 to 4 —Thank you Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. for your dissension) concerning gay marriage. As usual, Pastor Dale draws out not just a single one track point…but at the end of the sermon…you know that the sermon was for you and I am not even gay. smile emoticon

During the sermon I got to thinking about praying.

2 Chronicles 7:14 kept rattling around in my head.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Oh that one! smile emoticon Yes, and I hope that you have actually read that, studied it, pondered on it….meditated on it and just not heard it in church.

As Pastor Dale delivered his message. I thought…WOW! Where is the church? I mean, honestly…according to recent ABC Polls, Fox Polls, NBC Polls, etc…pick one…pick all…they all say that 80% of American’s claim to be a Christian…while 45% claim to be born again. I don’t believe these numbers…but I do believe there are 100s of thousands who are truly born again?

So, if that is the case, how does a woman like Madalyn Murray O’Hair, ONE woman…in 1963 get prayer removed from school? (Side note…ever notice that ALL the assassins are remembered by their full name, First, Middle Last? John Wilkes Booth! Lee Harvey Oswald! James Earl Ray! Charles Julius Guiteau! Leon Frank Czolgosz! Madalyn Murray O’Hair! Think about that just a moment!!! )

SEEK HIS FACE…WAKE UP AND PRAY!!!!

How? And let’s not even get into the repercussions of that landmark decision. Or…LET’S DO GET INTO IT

The very next year our President was assassinated! Child abuse up 2300% (2000), Unmarried couples up from 1963 to 725%. Pregnancies for UNWED 10 to 14 year olds up 553%…same group STDs for ages 10 to 14 year olds up 385%, violent crime up, drug use up 6000%…and this from a drug culture of the 1960s. These are just a small handful of social issues that have rose dramatically since 1963.

I don’t think these are all by accident.

It wasn’t until 2012 that Obama declared that same-sex couples should be able to marry, and it was only last year that he said he thought the Constitution provided such a right.

Another ripple from the 1963 decision? Or…will THIS decision take on a life of its own? Maybe both!

Like Pastor Dale said today…it’s tough facing those we love who are gay or support gay marriage. Because we love them, we don’t want to hurt them and we want to respect them. But the truth has to bleed through that rainbow. My own niece who I love so VERY MUCH…showed her support of the Supreme Court Decision by shrouding her Facebook avatar with a rainbow flag as did my grandson’s mother. People I love dearly. I hope that they know that…I hope that they know that and I hope that they understand that I also cannot ignore the Bible…I cannot ignore truth….I cannot ignore what happened on Calvary 2,000 years ago.

Pastor Dale was also careful to carve out that NONE of us escape sin. There is only ONE avenue of escape. JESUS!

PRAY…WAKE UP AND PRAY!

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Peter, James and John needed to remain awake and pray. Jesus rebuked them for sleeping and not praying. Is Jesus rebuking you for not praying?

Think about this…

If James would have prayed would this had saved his decapitation a few very short years later? If Simon Peter would have stayed awake and prayed would he had denied Christ three times in the palace of Caiaphas?

If you would have prayed…would you have, through prayer, made great change in this nation? If you would have prayed would you have brought about great change in your life and the lives of those that you love?

Where are these 100s of Thousands of BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS when one man or one woman tears down the curtain of justice and attacks the very foundation of our Christian faith? We need strong men and women…if you profess Christ as your Lord and Savior…PROVE it. Get on your knees and fight! That means, stop sitting on your backside. We need help over here…plug up these holes…we need prayer warriors on the front line…there is a war going on and we are losing battles…because God’s people refuse to pray. They are asleep in the Garden of Gethsemane! They are asleep in church!!!

A few years ago I wrote a book called, “Get on your knees and fight like a man.” In the book I related a story told to me by a nurse in Seattle. He said, “I left the grocery store the other day…and in the parking lot next to his car he saw (what he presumed was a Muslim man) on his face praying…He had a prayer rug and everything.” He told me he went to his car and cry out to God…what is wrong with me? That man doesn’t even know you…he prays to a false God…I know you…I KNOW YOU LORD and You know me. Why can’t I pray like that?

Yeah. Why? Why can’t we all pray like that? If God’s people would HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY…I will forgive their sins and heal their land!

My God!…My God!…do we believe that or not?

Nah…God was just playing. Yeah…when God was inspiring Ezra to write 2 Chronicles…He told him to squeeze out 36 chapters. Ezra had trouble with this so Nehemiah helped him to add some words to fill up space. Right? That’s what God does is He just adds things in His Word to fill up space? Wrong…every WORD is there deliberately…that mean’s on purpose…His purpose!

Like & share if you will commit to HUMBLING YOURSELF AND PRAYING…make an excuse to pray right now. What’s your excuse?

When I was a young disciple at Medford Praise Chapel here in Medford…we use to laugh at the new Christians when they prayed. They would literally thank the Lord for the wind…the rain…the sunshine…the 100 degree weather…20 minutes later thank Him for the hotdogs and Mexican food and we would eat.

But the truth is we can learn a lot from new converts. WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE TO PRAY? EPHESIANS 6:10

” Finally, my brethren, be STRONG in the LORD, and in the POWER of his MIGHT”

NLT EXPOSED

New Living Translation EXPOSED!

Robert J. Stewart

The New Living Translation (NLT) is straight from Hell.  On their official website, NLT advertises with the slogan, “Accuracy you can trust.”  Unfortunately, the NLT is not very accurate.  The fact that the word “begotten” has been wrongfully removed from John 3:16 should be enough reason for every Christian to trash their NLT.

In fact, I would rip it into shreds first to ensure that no one else is poisoned by it.  To say that Jesus is God’s “only son” is a lie!  In fact, God has many sons according to Scriptures such as 1st John 3:1, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.”

Biblically, God has MANY sons, but Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son.  So you see, ANY bible which removes the word “begotten” from John 3:16 becomes heresy.  This includes most modern bibles such as the perverted New International Version (NIV), The Book For Teens (TBFT), the New Living Translation (NLT), the New Believer’s Bible (NBB), the Living Bible (LB), and many more.  It is tragic!

Let’s face it, the corrupters who are publishing demonic bibles are all out to make a fast buck, filthy lucre!  In order to reach the largest market base possible, they trim and water down the Scriptures as much as tolerable.  This is evil.  God hates Bible corruption –Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”  Well, the NLT butchers have diminished God’s Word by subtracting “begotten” from John 3:16.

The NLT was published in 1996 by Tyndale Publishers.  Few Christians realize that there have been over 200 new Bible translations published just within the last 30 years.  It’s blatantly obvious that this evil is the result of much greed and love for money (1st Timothy 6:10).  The NLT is based upon Kenneth N. Taylor’s corrupted Living Bible (1971).  His perverted Living Bible sold over 40 million copies in North America alone.  Taylor died in June of 2005 at age 88.  It is wicked to corrupt the Word of God (2nd Peter 3:16).  Now comes the damnable New Living translation.  Although the NLT preface claims that 87 scholars were involved in the word of translation, I have to seriously wonder if any of them really loved Jesus Christ.  1st Peter 2:7 reads, “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious…”

How could any professed Christian who loves Jesus be involved in a bible translation that perverts the Word of God.  The fact that dozens of different ecumenical groups were involved in the work of translation speaks volumes as to the Devil’s attempt to water down the Word of God.  Increasingly, modern bible translations must be more politically correct in order to sell at high volumes.  So as the world plunges further into the depths of wickedness and apostasy, new translations must follow along if they are to sell.  Take a look at The Book For Teens bible, which is based upon the New Living Translation, not one mention is made of the blood of Jesus in the section on “Salvation through Jesus Christ” (Page A47).  The blood of Jesus is a taboo subject nowadays amongst many pseudo-Christian groups, thanks to heretics like John MacArthur.

As further proof of corruption, Billy Graham endorses the NLT on the front cover jacket.  Billy Graham is Mr. ecumenical himself, who has done more to unite apostate protestants with the Great Whore of Catholicism than anyone else.  2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 commands us to separate from the unbelieving world, NOT yoke up with them.  Ephesians 5:11 tells us to reprove the works of darkness, NOT fellowship with them.

Billy graham is on the Devil’s side, a friend of the world, and the enemy of God (James 4:4).  The Catholic Church is straight out of the pits of Hell and it’s about time that ALL the preachers around the world start proclaiming it.  Billions of souls are headed for destruction because of compromised and cowardly pastors and preachers who are afraid to offend anyone.  Speak the Truth!  Offend them!  Their souls are at stake!

Corrupted Scriptures in the New Living Translation

  • Deuteronomy – “sodomite” changed to “temple prostitute”
  • 1 Kings 14:24 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 1 Kings 15:12 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 1 Kings 22:46 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 2 Kings 23:7 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • Matthew 17:21 – entire verse omitted
  • Matthew 18:11 – entire verse omitted
  • Matthew 19:9 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Matthew 23:14 – entire verse omitted
  • Mark 6:11 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Mark 7:16 – entire verse omitted
  • Mark 9:44, 46 – entire verses omitted

  • John 1:10 – says God created everything “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the KJB teaches
  • John 1:41 – The NLT leaves out the phrase, “Which is by interpretation, a stone.”  Hence, the critical distinction between Peter as “the stone” (Petros), and Jesus as “The Rock” (Petra) is obscured.  This was no doubt deliberate to pleases Catholics who falsely teach that Peter is the rock upon which the church is built.  The Bible states in no uncertain terms, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1st Corinthians 3:11).

  • Philippians 2:6 -removes the word “equal,” thus denying Christ’s deity
  • Colossians 1:16 – says God created everything “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the KJB teaches
  • Colossians 2:9 – completely removes the “Godhead”
  • 1 Timothy 3:16 – “God” is omitted, says “Christ appeared in the flesh, thus denying the deity of Christ
  • 1 Timothy 6:5 – “from such withdraw thyself” is omitted
  • Hebrews 1:3 – the all-important words “by himself” are omitted
  • 1 Peter 4:1 – “for us” is omitted
  • 1 Peter 4:14 – half of the verse is omitted
  • 1 John 3:16 -completely removes “the love of God”
  • 1 John 4:3 – the all-important words “Christ is come in the flesh” are omitted 1 John 5:7-8 — Trinitarian clause omitted
  • 1 John 5:7 – half of the verse is omitted, thus denying the Godhead
  • 1 John 5:13 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Revelation 1:11 – first half of the verse is omitted
  • Revelation 5:14 – “him that liveth forever and ever” is omitted

NLT perverts the Godhead! 

1st John 5:7 is a vital Scripture that EVERY Christian should know.  This Scripture clearly proclaims that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are ONE.  But, the NLT says otherwise…

KJB – “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

NLT – “So we have these three witnesses.”

What blasphemy!  Many Christians have bought into the lie that 1st John 5:7 wasn’t in the originals –IT WAS!  It depends on which originals you’re talking about.  The Textus Receptus (or received text) from which our reliable King James Bible comes DOES contain 1st John 5:7.

1st John 5:7 in the NLT greatly contradicts John 10:30

“I and my Father are one.” -John 10:30  KJB

It also contradicts Luke 3:22

“And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.”

The NLT Bible-corrupters even removed the Godhead from Romans 1:20

KJB – “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

NLT – “From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.

One of the most popular attacks that unbelievers launch against Christians is to say that the word “trinity” is not even found in the Bible.  The best defense is to show them the multiple Scriptures in the Word of God which teach about the GODHEAD.  Tragically, the word “Godhead” isn’t even mentioned in the NLT.  What?  Yes, that is correct…some “accurate” translation huh?  This is why I confidently say that the New Living Translation is straight from Hell.  Here’s Acts 17:29 compared…

KJB – “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

NLT – “And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.”

Many cults (such as Islamic Muslims and Jehovah Witnesses) acknowledge the existence of a god, but deny the Godhead.  It is tragic that so many believers are supporting these modern versions that maliciously attack the Godhead and Jesus’ deity.  Look what they’ve done to Colossians 2:9

KJB – “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

NLT – “For in Christ the fullness of God lives in a human body.”

I noticed a tiny asterisk mark (*) next to Colossians 2:9 in the NLT.  I looked to the bottom to see what the footnote said… “Greek in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”  Do you see what is happening here?  To make everybody happy, the NLT Bible-corrupters completely removed “Godhead” to appease the liberals, but then they’ve also placed the truth in a little footnote in an attempt to appease conservative protestants.  Why in the world would they not place the literal Greek translation in Colossians 2:9, why would they put the correct Greek translation in a tiny footnote at the bottom of the page?  Do you know what happens in the making of a new bible?  It’s kind of like the bargaining table at contract time between the union and company management.

All the different religious denominations are invited to the bargaining table and a meeting is held to decide what COMPROMISES must be made to make the “new” bible acceptable to their particular denomination. This is all done in an attempt to reach the largest market base possible. By the time the new corrupted bible is finished, without fail, the Godhead (trinity) and the deity of Jesus Christ are greatly diminished. This is why I love the old King James Bible, it proudly proclaims the Godhead and the deity of our Precious Lord Jesus Christ.

NLT perverts Christ’s Deity! 

One of the most important verses in the Bible is John 3:16.  As mentioned earlier, the NLT perverts this verse by removing the word “begotten,” thus saying that God only has one son.   But 1st John 3:1 in the KJB reads, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”  Clearly, God has many sons, but Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son of God, which makes Jesus God.

KJB – “ “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16

NLT – “For God so loved the world that he gave he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

The NLT teaches heresy!

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” -Galatians 3:26  KJB

The NLT also corrupts 1st Timothy 3:16

KJB – “…God was manifest in the flesh…”

TBFT – “…Christ appeared in the flesh…”

Jesus claimed to be Almighty God in Revelation 1:8.  For anyone to diminish 1st Timothy 3:16 to a mere “Christ appeared in the flesh” is ridiculous.  Any idiot knows that Jesus appeared in the flesh!  But the KJB declares that GOD was manifest (or revealed) in the fleshly body of Jesus Christ.  It angers many people when you promote the deity of Christ, thus the reason why ALL modern bibles attack Jesus’ deity.

Again, the NLT perverts Philippians 2:5, 6

KJB – “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.”

NLT – “Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God.”

The NLT cleverly corrupted Philippians 2:6 by removing the word “equal.”  In so doing, they have lowered Jesus to the God of the Jehovah Witnesses.  JW’s teach that Jesus is “a god,” but not Almighty God, which is a lie of the Devil.  By saying that Jesus is “equal” with God, the KJB is clearly declaring Christ as Almighty God.

As further proof of the NLT attack on Jesus’ deity, look at Colossians 1:16

KJB – “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth…”

NLT – “Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth.”

Blasphemy! The KJB declares that Jesus created all things, but the NLT wrongfully teaches that God created all things through Jesus. This is exactly what the Jehovah Witnesses cult teaches. JW’s deny Christ’s deity (as do most cults). JW’s teach that God created everything THROUGH Jesus. On the contrary, the KJB proclaims in Colossians 1:16 that Jesus Christ created all things Himself. It is wicked heresy to say that Jesus did not create the universe by His own Word. John 1:10 reads, “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.” Sadly, the NLT perverts this Scripture also, claiming that God created the universe “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the Word of God teaches in the KJB. The JW’s would be proud of the NLT. Oh listen friend, you need to burn your NLT because it dishonors and dethrones the Lord Jesus Christ.

NLT perverts Acts 12:4!

The NLT perverts Acts 12:4 by changing “Easter” to “Passover.” Numbers 28:16,17 clearly teaches that the seven days of unleavened bread FOLLOWED the day of Passover. Acts 12:2 in the KJB tells us that the days of unleavened bread were already being observed, which means that the day of Passover was OVER! So when the NIV and the NLT say that Herod was waiting for the Passover in Acts 12:5, they are lying! The KJB wisely uses the proper word “Easter” because the Passover had already occurred.
NLT completely removes the word “sodomite” from the Bible

God describes homosexuals with the word “sodomite” for a reason. Jude 1:7 reads, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” The word “sodomite” comes from the city of Sodom, a city so vile and wicked that God decided to utterly destroy it by reigning down fire and brimstone from Heaven. To call homosexuality, “sodomy,” implies the judgment of God upon the wicked sin of homosexuality.

The modern definition of sodomy is NOT the Biblical definition. Sodomy in the Bible is defined as sex between two men, or two women (homosexuality and lesbianism). We read of the woeful homosexuality problem in Sodom in Genesis 19:4, 5. American society has plunged horribly into wickedness and apostasy, even to the extent of corrupting the Bible for the sake of being politically correct to make money. Now there’s even a homosexual bible.

Get a King James Bible!

The 1611 King James Bible is trustworthy. We don’t rewrite Shakespeare because we can’t understand the archaic English; rather, we study it in the beauty in which it was written. To retranslate Shakespeare into modern English would be a literary tragedy. This it is a woeful tragedy what modern Bible corrupters have done to God’s Word. In the King James Bible we have the preserved and inspired Word of God. The Bible is to be studied, not read like a comic book or magazine. Too many believers have bought into the lie that we need a new Bible, and another, and another… where will it end? …The Satanic Bible?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

TO ALL OF THE MOTHER’s OUT THERE.

Image may contain: 6 people, including Kimberly Smith-Nicastro, people smilingMothers aren’t special because they gave birth to us. Mothers aren’t special because they are beautiful (although they are).

Mothers are special because their love is unconditional. They wipe our tears and bring discipline when necessary. Mother’s are special because they are the glue that holds the family together. They are the one who is always in your corner.

I miss my mama every single day. On March 3rd, 2012, She took her last breath on earth and her very next breath was in the presence of Jesus. It was also her 72nd birthday. I would give up anything for 5 more minutes with my mama.

I miss her hugs, I miss her wisdom and I miss her smile. I also miss the way she used to call me her S – U – N,(spelling it out) because she said that I was, “the sunshine of her life”…and it drove my sister’s absolutely crazy.

I am a mama’s boy…but I was not a mama’s boy until after I became a man – after I came to know Jesus.

Image may contain: 1 person, textMy Grandma Rose Hemphill was very special to me too. I named all three of my daughters after her: Michaela Smith, Jordyn Rosebud Airrington and Leila Rose Airrington.

All three with the middle name of Rose! Someday…they will be mothers too. I love each of my daughters so very much and you are a blessing to me.

I want to honor my mother and my grandmother this day. And listen, not all mothers-in-law are bad. I happen to think that my wife had a great mother-in-law.

May God bless all of you mother’s and grandmother’s out there. You deserve this day…. every day should be mother’s day!

Christian Symbol?

Is the FIsh a “Christian” symbol?
Better Google: ‘Egyptian fish god” and perhaps STOP using it.

No automatic alt text available.Are crosses Christian symbols?

(1.) 97.9% of the time the people wearing across are NOT a Christian.

(2.) The cross was NEVER intended to be a religious symbol.

(3.) If you Dad or your son got the electric chair would you wear an electric chair around your neck to remember them?

(4.) The cross is a symbol that predates Christ. The symbol is associated with Tammuz from the Babylonian Religion. (Babylonian Mystery Religion, p. 51) or https://www.ebay.com/itm/132516209521

From Babylon, the cross spread to other nations and was associated with paganism long before Jesus’ crucifixion in A.D. 31

(5.) a. It was a shameful instrument of death (Hebrews 12:2).
b. While the apostles preached “the cross [stauros]” as part of the history of Christ’s ministry for our sakes (1 Corinthians 1:17-18), it was not something they idolized

(6.) What does the Bible teach about wearing any religious symbol?

No automatic alt text available.Under the Old Covenant that God made with ancient Israel, God instructed them to wear reminders of their faith upon their hands (Deuteronomy 6:8; 11:18). In fulfillment of this command, phylacteries, small leather boxes containing scriptural passages, were traditionally worn by Jewish men during their morning weekday prayers. However, many did this to “appear” religious to those around them. (Matthew 23:5)

(7.) During His New Testament ministry, Jesus taught His followers to display their spirituality through their actions and deeds (Matthew 5:16). Under the New Covenant, ushered in by Christ, God’s laws are to be written on our hearts—that is, in our minds (Hebrews 8:10; 10:16).

Image may contain: 1 person, closeupIf you would like to learn more about the history of the cross and how this pagan symbol entered Christianity, read chapters 6 and 7 of Ralph Woodrow’s book, Babylon Mystery Religion. These two chapters are respectively titled “Is the Cross a Christian Symbol?” and “Constantine and the Cross.”

Order Babylon Religion

(https://www.ebay.com/itm/132516209521) and I will include the digital copies of the Books:

1. Babylon Mystery Religion
2. A Woman Rides The Beast

Absolutely free. Just mention you saw this on Facebook.

Image may contain: 1 person, closeup* I have no way of knowing if the persons depicted in the attached photos are saved or not. The point is wearing a cross does not make you saved. The bigger the cross does not make you more saved any more than wearing more than one cross. Christians need to be careful about the symbols the idolize and glorify.

The NKJV has a satanic symbol as it’s logo! That is an essay for another day.

Beware of talisman and symbols./ St. Christipher cannot protect you any more than my grandfather can…and they are both dead! Jesus is alive…you want a symbol? Look to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith!

EVIDENCE OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS

“…because I live, you will live also.” – John 14:19

Christianity is about faith – faith in Jesus Christ who rose from the dead. But have you realized there is also historical documentation of Jesus’ resurrection? Six different books offer documentation of Jesus’ nine live appearances afte lol lr His resurrection:

– He appeared to Mary Magdalene and other women the morning of His resurrection.

– He appeared to Peter.

– He appeared to two men on the road to Emmaus.

– He appeared to the disciples as a whole (except for Thomas, who wasn’t there).

– He appeared to the disciples with Thomas, and Thomas believed.

– He appeared to seven disciples at the Sea of Galilee and enjoyed a fish fry.

– He appeared to over 500 people at once.

– He appeared one final time to His disciples before He ascended to heaven.

That is a lot of evidence that He rose from the dead! I believe it and I surely hope you do, too!

WAKE UP!!!!

Image may contain: sky, plant, tree and outdoorEVERY SINGLE DAY IN AMERICA 11 CHURCHES CLOSE FOREVER!!!!

Christian Colleges and Christian Universities are closing too!

This is long…you won’t care. You will laugh and mock me and say, “I’m on a highway to Hell and its gonna be fun because that’s where all my friends are.”

The RAPTURE of the CHURCH — it is said to be the GREATEST EVEN THAT THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN IS COMING SOON!

I believe that if we do not get our acts together the rapture may come with a bang and end with a fizzle. “Narrow is the gate and few find the way.” We have a lot to talk about. Don’t just sit there and assume your salvation is secure.

“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;” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Matthew 24:12

The time is near and the scariest part is this…

Jesus said, “… Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8

Jesus asks when He returns will there be anything for Him to return too…sin will abound and the love of many shall wax cold.

Jesus also Prophesied that the there would be a great falling away. 11 CHURCHES CLOSING EVERY SINGLE DAY IN AMERICA! Christian colleges and Christian Universities closing.

No automatic alt text available.And for those of you that were hoping to skip the tribulation…I’m sorry you and I will have a front row seat! (READ YOUR BIBLE 1 Thessalonian 4, Matthew 24, Daniel 6,7 and 9 and Revelation 7)…We do not get to skip the Tribulation! The wrath of God??? That one is up to you!!!

And if you think that things are hard now…Just read

Jeremiah 12:5, “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?”

Jerimiah says, “If the foot soldiers wore you out…what are you going to do when the horses come?”

There will be sin on every corner…you will be constantly tempted..walk down any street and pornography and sin will abound. How are you going to endure to the end?

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13

Christian…you only need to make it to the Day of Christ (Not to be confused with the Day of the Lord.). Can you do it?

Philippians 2:2-5, ” Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:”

Image may contain: sky and outdoorPhilippians 1:6-7 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.”

v.10 “That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.”

v. 11 “Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.”

v.20-24 20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

2 Corinthians 2:16, “To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?”

This world is showing signs of the coming age. It’s time brothers and sisters…it’s time to finally get your donkey off the couch and fulfill the great commission! Matthew 28:19–20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8

Jesus’ final command as He ascended into the clouds returning to the right hand of the Father says, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

Look at the attached photos…as one church closes after another…today 11 churches close…tomorrow another 11…I see why Jesus proclaimed, “Will I find FAITH on the earth when I return?”!!!!!!!!!!

YOU ARE GOING TO HELL!

1 Thessalonians 5:4-5, “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that  that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.”

You keep reading these fake bibles…refusing to listen to listen…you read bibles that deny the ressurection…deny the deity of Christ…deny that Heaven or Hell exist.

11 Churches close in America every day. Is there any wonder Christianity is falling apart?

The Bible declares there will be a great falling away. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

It all starts because people are reading the NIV, ESV, NASV, NLT, NAB, TLB, AMP, CEB, NWT(JWs bible), MEV, MSG, any of about 300. Pick one. They are all based on the FAKE Sinaiticus, Vaticanus and Alexandrius.

Please pay attention! I think that the rapture will start with a bang (trumpets and a shout) and end in a fizzle.

Narrow is the gate and few find the way. Matthew 7:13-14

2 Timothy 3:7-9 says that some are caught in a loop of learning but they are never able to come to the truth.

These same also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. They cannot proceed in their faith…

The TRUTH begins when we read God’s Word. Not some watered down fake bible that they sell at your local Bible store in the mall.

Speaking of which a couple months ago…I was in the market for small pocket Bible. I liked the look and feel of one that I had. The trouble was it was in French.

I approached the clerk…I handed my sample to her and told her what I was looking for. She immediately ignored…my request for a King James Bible…they had a very small KJB section.

She took me to the ESV section…pulled down a $150 packet bible. I said,. “thank you for showing me this…do you have anything in the King James?”

She said, “The ESV is easier to understand and is more accurate than the King James.”

Ok okay…hmm said, ” Who killed Goliath?”. She smiled, rolled her eyes and said, “David.”

In her ESV…I had her turn to. 2 Samuel 21:19 and 1 Samuel 17:50.

She read them over and over. Then said oh it’s a different battles…I said, “nope the same battle…and 2 Samuel has Elhanan killing Goliath and 1 Samuel has David killing Goliath.”

She sighed and then led me to the NLT. I said this one won’t work… because it denies the Virgin birth in a footnote for Isaiah 7:14 and others.”

She raised her voice and said, “If you wanted a King James then you should have said so.”

I did say so. :). They defend these modern fake bibles as if they were the Holy Grail!

Please…the TRUTH is so much better than the fiction. Read the King James Bible….

LOOPHOLE CHRISTIAN

“Today I was looking around Facebook.  Mostly at Christian pages.  People were asking all kinds of questions like,

“Can I still be a Christian and drink alcohol?”

“Is it really cheating if all we are doing is sexting on our phones?”

“Do Christians smoke?”

“I think Christians can smoke weed because its natural and Jesus made.”

“I’m a Christian and I have dated my girlfriend for a year. I think it is wrong that my state banned same sex marriage, its nobodies business who I love.”

What was more interesting is there was no shortage of opinions. There was one thread that had 96 replies. 96! And not a single one said, “the Bible says…” And these opinions varied wide and far.

Yesterday somneone asked me, “if someone commits suicide would they go to Heaven?”  Since this is a very important issue, I will pause now to attempt an answer.

Do Christians who kill themselves go to Heaven or Hell? This is a difficult question to answer, not because the answer is difficult, but because Christians who are looking for the answer are probably contemplating suicide.  If this is you, I want to warn you that it is not God’s will that you commit suicide.

Many argue that suicide is murder and that there is no time to repent.   Maybe maybe not.  However, the God that I know says that He wishes that none would perish…no not one. 2 Peter 3:9

So, the short answer is, “I don’t know.”  And, this is a question that no one can answer with any sort of certainty.  I do know that committing suicide is one of the most selfish things that you can do to those that you love.  In fact, I would say committing adultery and committing suicide…it’s a toss up which is more selfish.  If you commit suicide…you leave those that love you behind, missing you, hurting and wondering if you are in Heaven or Hell.  I would even argue that you might miss Heaven, not for the murder but for being so selfish.

Suicide dulls you pain but for a moment and then one way or another you are in front of Jesus.  And I am going to tell you this, and hear me good.  There is absolutly no way, even if only s slim chance that killing myself would send me to Hell that I want to miss out on hearing these words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”  Matthew 25:21

The words that scare me, “…I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.   Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

NOTHING…and I mean NOTHING will keep me from the Joy of the Lord.   Also, Matthew 24:13, “ But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” 

Mark 13:13, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

Hebrews 3:14, “For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;”

I NEVER, EVER want to hear the words, “…I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  Matthew 7:21-23.

So, will killing yourseld send you to Hell?  I have no idea.  And maybe this is why the Bible is so silent on the issue…I am just not taking that chance.  I do not care how bad it gets on earth.

Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”, Genesis 9:6

Therefore, according to the Bible, the only One who has the right to decide when we die is the Creator Himself.  The Bible also says God has ordained the days of our lives.  So, suicide specifically violates the will of God in a person’s life.

I’m talking to Christians now.

I have always used this analogy when describing our Christian walk.

Your salvation is a road…sometimes the road is straight…sometimes there are twists and turns.

Sometimes the road seems all uphill…but then there are days the road is all down hill and you feel a breeze on your face.

Some days you cannot wait for tomorrow as your road is all filled with bumps and pot holes.  And the days we look forward to are the days when our road is smooth and easy going.

But make no mistake on your right is a feel dark abyss that leads straight to Hell. But on your left is a big beautiful green meadow with trees, flowers and sunshine…a light breeze and a perfect 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

On the left…you know the beautiful meadow…that’s Heaven…and you can see it, you can feel its warmth but you can’t even stick your toe in…that day will have to wait.

But on the right…that cliff is deep and wide and leads to an everlasting life of torment.

I don’t want to live my life so far from Heaven that I cannot see it, be encouraged by it, motivated by it…feel the love and power from God…

Because as I go through my life down my road of salvation (sanctification to be precise)…I’m gonna stumble, I promise you that.   And when I stumble I want to be in the Father’s arms, where I have protection.  Where He can lift me up.  Because if I have found so many loopholes or even one that has me so close to the edge of the cliff and when, not if, WHEN I fall…I am going straight to Hell and I will not be able to turn back.  Philippians 4:13 tells me that “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”  How in the heck am I going to to rely on the strength of Christ when I am so far from Him that I can see Him, maybe…but I cannot touch Him.  We are playing games if we think one beer won’t matter, a little pornography won’t matter, reading a bible like the NIV, ESV, NASB, NLT, et al with all their denial of Jesus, Jehovah, the Trinity, Hell, etc. It will be fine…we are going to be surprised!

Not everyone that calls Him Lord Lord will see Heaven: Matthew 7:21-23, 1 John 2:3, Luke 9:35, Revelation 22:14

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.   Matthew 7:21-23

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”  1 John 2:3

And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.”   Luke 9:35

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Revelation 22:14

Out of all those Scriptures the one verse that keeps rining in my ear is, “…I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:23b

It’s one thing that we know Him.  In fact, I know alot of people.  I know Paul, I know Peter, I know Thomas and James…I know Arnold Swartzenegger, I know President Trump, I even know General Stonewall Jackson.  But, do you know what I have in common with all of those men?  Iknow them…but NONE of them know me.  You may know Jesus, I am willing to bet a lot of people know Him.  But, does HE KNOW YOU?  It is not enough for us to know Jesus…moreover…does HE KNOW US!   Think about that a minuite.

“But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.”   Luke 13:27

Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.Psalm 6:8

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:”  Matthew 25:41

When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:”  Luke 13:25

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”  2 Timothy 2:19

But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?”  Galations 4:9

Why are ye looking for LOOPHOLES?   Do ye not know the difference between right and wrong.   If you don’t  know the difference between right and wrong, there is help for thou: James 1:5 tells us to ask God for Wisdom.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO RISK SPENDING YOUR EVERLASTING IN HELL? 

Psalm 1:6, “For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

ESV don’t know who killed Goliath!

In the ESV:

2 Samuel 21:19 says Elhanan killed Goliath
1 Samuel 17:50 says David killed Goliath.

Every Sunday School kid knows David killed Goliath. The King James Bible gets it right.

At least 30 modern bibles including the ESV gets it wrong.  The Ironic thing is virtually every English Bible prior to 1611 does not have this contradiction.

There are thousands of other contradictions and errors in these so-called modern translations.

The NIV and most modern translations deny the TRINITY (Father, the Word & Holy Ghost)

See 1 John 5:7 in your Bible. King James gets it right.

Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; and Colossians 2:9

All 3 contain the word “Godhead” in the King James Bible…”Godhead” is missing in modern translations that stamp out 1 John 5:7

They are erasing Jesus…they are erasing the Trinity.

Was Mary a virgin?

Isaiah 7:14 In the King James Bible says so.

In the modern bibles virgin is replaced with young woman or handmaiden. No virgin birth….no miracle…no Jesus.

Some put it in a footnote.  If God said it…it needs to be in the text…by adding to a footnote they add doubt.  This is why I hate footnotes.  Many times they will say, “or” and then show the footnote.  Remember, if it says “or” you can ignore.  King James hated footnotes too.  He said that the Word of God can stand on its own.  Many publishers are adding footnotes to the King James Bibles.  Just remember, if it says OR you can IGNORE.

The errors and contradictions in these new Bibles are not just  2 or 3 verses…they occur in 100s and even 1000s.

My God inspired His Word. He promised to preserve it. And He is smart enough to make one Bible…in English that is His words.

There are about 300 modern bibles…all say something different…they can’t all be right.  Now, can they?

Is God confused? Can He not figure out what He wants to say?

How many errors or contradictions must be in a bible before it is no longer God’s Word?

There were three main manuscripts that were used to translate these 300 modern translations.  Two out of the three of these manuscripts have been proven fakes (see Is the World’s oldest Bible a fake?  https://www.ebay.com/itm/132515946947)

I trust the Authorized Version.  You can trust just ONE Bible.  The one that has stood the test of time for over 400 years without a single textual change.  These modern bibles go through a textual change every 5 to 10 years.  The NIV84, NIV2011, NIrV and the TNIV are a totally different bible.  n 2011, an updated version of the NIV was released. The update modified and dropped some of the gender-neutral language of the TNIV (such as going back to using “mankind” and “man” instead of “human beings” and “people”), along with other changes.

1984 NIV

2005 TNIV

2011 NIV

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Blessed are those who do not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but who delight in the law of the LORD and meditate on his law day and night. They are like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers. Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.

Please see the NIV2011 executive summary and the translator’s notes (PDF).

Follow the link below; it has verse by verse changes.

Robert Slowley’s comparison (includes several great summaries of changes verses and words, including gender issues)

NIV 2010/2011 changes (by John Dyer)

The ESV had revisions done in 2001, 2007, 2011, and 2016.   The 2007 revision changed about 500 words.  The 2011 revision involved aboout 275 verses and less than 500 words.  They also announced the 2007was being phased out.  For the revision of 2016 Crossway announced the “ESV Permanent Text Edition”, where multiple words and verses were changed.  They claimed this would be the last revision.

Isn’t nice to know that the King James has not been “phased out.”  The ESV had so many changes and it was so different than the previous revisions they had no choice but to get rid of the old ones.  But weren’t there changes in the King James Editions; the 1611, 1762 and the 1769?  There were.  But not like you might expect from seeing the changes in the NIV, ESV, et al.   I will cover this in another article.   But for now…here are a handle of what the anti-KJB folks call significant changes:

* 1 Corinthians 12:28 – “helpes in gouernmets” vs. “helps, governments”
* Joshua 3:11 – “Arke of the Couenant, euen the Lord” vs. “ark of the covenant of the Lord”
* 2 Kings 11:10 – “in the Temple” vs. “in the temple of the LORD”
* Isaiah 49:13 – “for God” vs. “for the LORD”
* Jeremiah 31:14 – “with goodnesse” vs. “with my goodness”
* Jeremiah 51:30 – “burnt their dwelling places” vs. “burned her dwellingplaces”
* Ezekiel 6:8 – “that he may” vs. “that ye may”
* Ezekiel 24:5 – “let him seethe” vs. “let them seethe”
* Ezekiel 24:7 – “powred it vpon the ground” vs. “poured it not upon the ground”
* Ezekiel 48:8 – “which they shall” vs. “which ye shall”
* Daniel 3:15 – “a fierie furnace” vs. “a burning fiery furnace”
* Matthew 14:9 – “the othes sake” vs. “the oath’s sake”
* 1 Corinthians 15:6 – “And that” vs. “After that”
* 1 John 5:12 – “the Sonne, hath” vs. “the Son of God hath”

Yep…those are what they call SIGNIFICANT CHANGES.  goodnesse becomes goodness.  Arke of the Couenat becomes ark of the covenant. heples becomes help.

In 1769 Dr. Benjamin Blayney completed his revision of the King James Bible and using Dr. Samuel Johnson’s first edition 1755 printing of the Johnson Dictionary the English language “came of age.” Spelling, punctuation, and grammar became standardized making it possible to teach succeeding generations the fledgling languages’ establishment as a great spoken and written language in the world of communication, commerce and education. I think we can see the 1755 Dr. Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary at work in the above examples of “SIGNIFICANT CHANGES”.  More to come…

WILL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?

Rev. Kevin Airrington
February 10, 2018

The most fascinating, almost haunting thing for me that Jesus ever said is this: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8) I have literally lost sleep thinking about this verse.

“The Son of man” is what Jesus called Himself on earth. The phrase literally means “Dude”. So, in essence, He is saying, “When this Dude comes…”

Absolutely awesome, Jesus, gotta love Him!

If He is omnipotent and omniscient, and He is, then why would He ask a question like that? It’s almost like the feeling is that it’s going to get so bad on earth before His return that He asks this question of whether or not there’ll even be faith left on the earth at His return to warn us. Warn us of the Hell we will need to put us with and warn us of how easy it is for us to backslide and to always…ALWAYS stay in check.

Jesus asks, “Won’t God answer His own elect who cry to Him daily?” (if you are a Christian you are His elect) prayer…Christians must more than ever pray! Pray without ceasing. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

In Matthew 24:12, where Jesus was speaking about the time just before His return, He said, “And because iniquity (sin) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Boundless iniquity and a growing lack of love throughout the earth.

Then in II Thessalonians 2:3 Paul said about the second coming of the Lord, “that day shall not come except there come a falling away first.”

A falling away from faith in God throughout the earth. Maybe you haven’t fallen away or you live in a community where faith is still vibrant. But on a national and international scale, faith in God has declined dramatically in the last century or so, especially throughout the nations of the Western world.

My goodness, you would think the writers of the Bible got on Google and read today’s newspaper!

The Bible says the Antichrist will have “scattered the power of the holy people” (Daniel 12:7), just before the return of Jesus.

Maybe that’s why Jesus asked that question, “When the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” It’s going to be the toughest time in the history of the world for the people of faith.

Will Jesus find faith on earth? The answer seems to be yes. However, weeping and gnashing of teeth…wide is the gate that leads to destruction…for many, He will not find faith. This is a fallen world….just watch the news!

Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Again, watch the news…wow!

God help us all to hold on to our crowns and to keep the faith unto the end, whatever that will be for each of us.

May God bless you and yours.
