Warning! Warning! Sin Will Be Uncovered!

Warning! Warning! Sin Will Be Uncovered!

But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23)

“There’s a call come ringing over the restless waves, Send the LIGHT! Send the LIGHT!”

Oh, my dear friend how we need to cry out unto God, “Send the Light; Send the LIGHT!” Not only does it appear that most of our planet is operating daily in the dastardly deeds of Satan’s dark, dark domain, but it seems that many of our churches are blindingly operating the same way.

Sadly, and so sorrowfully, there’s not enough LIGHT, which is God’s powerful, revealing, leading, and convicting LIGHT, these days shining within our churches illuminating, or convicting, the ongoing works of darkness; known as sin! But, let us be reminded: Warning! Warning! Sin Will Be Uncovered! (Sooner or later!)

It is imperative that we, as the Body of Christ, seek out GOD’S LIGHT to shine upon the hearts and lives of man convicting them of their wrong doings, secret lives, and evil ways. The horrific sins of darkness are taking place right inside and within the walls of the local assembly where God’s people are blindingly participating without awareness of the LIGHT… Warning! Warning! Warning! Your sins will find you out.

As true Believers and followers of Christ, we must sound the alarm and WARN, WARN, WARN all those that participate in sin’s arena that there will be a great price to pay! Sin does NOT operate freely…it charges a fee; a great fee…Sin often charges a price that can, and often does, bankrupt forever its participants.

The Bible clearly teaches that there is “pleasure in sin for a season” (Hebrews 11:25). Why a “season?” Because a season has a beginning and an ending; just like sin. Sin often starts off slowly, softly, and unseen by the naked eye. It creeps up on an individual without their even noticing it until it is in full bloom. A person then has a choice…to seek after the blooms of sin for a season or take heed of the LIGHT and depart from the very appearance of evil.

We must be reminded that sin comes in all types of pretty packaging. And, sin knows no “age” limits or “gender” difference. A man or woman in his or her mid-70’s can commit adultery the same as a young man or woman; it makes no difference the age. An adolescent or teenager can commit a crime the same as an older adult. Make no excuse about it sin doesn’t take into account a person’s age, race, greed, nationality, or gender. Sin also doesn’t mind affecting a person’s socio-economic status either; whether you are rich or poor. Sometimes, society tends to look down on the poorer person who has gotten caught in his or her acts of sin while it tries to make excuses for the richer more affluent person. But, sin, dear friend, is exactly like death…It has no preference towards its victims or respecter of persons. Sin is an equal opportunity destroyer.

Many, many years ago as a much younger Christian, wife, and mother, I was overwhelmed to learn that several of my church leaders were involved in sinful living. This devastated me as I had so much trust and confidence in these people. One morning as I wept alongside of my bed I felt the LORD speak to my heart, “Do not put your eyes on people. Keep them on me; for I AM the only ONE incapable of sinning.” Right then and there the matter was settled. Little did I know that within a few years of that experience my husband would be called into the ministry. My, oh my, how those precious Words of Wisdom spoken to my heart that morning by the Holy Spirit have been my anchor down through the years of service unto the Lord. Oh, how we need God’s anchor of Hope in our lives.

Sadly, I could write a novel describing the different levels and degrees of sins that good, godly people have fallen into as well as the terrible, dreadful, and awful results that they had to pay; some with their own lives.

Sin not only destroys individual lives, but it destroys families, churches, and entire communities. The nature of Sin doesn’t matter who it hurts, devours, or destroys…Sin is an eating machine with an endless appetite that is never, never satisfied. The nature of Sin challenges a person to believe that they can carry on their evil deeds without paying the price; but that is a LIE straight from hell. There is always a price to be paid for acts and behaviors of Sin.

Many years ago, a young attractive married woman with two sons worked at a local business. Over time she became infatuated and involved with her boss. She finally made the choice one night to meet him somewhere and go off together. There in the dark hours of the night she got inside of his car not realizing it would be the last car ride she would ever take. As they drove just outside the city limits they met head-on with a tractor-trailer truck driving on the wrong side of the highway. The terrible sounds of the colliding vehicles woke up an entire neighborhood as the flames from the burning vehicles shot higher and higher into the air. Soon their charred-burned bodies were pulled from the wreckage and discovered. Up until that terrible, fateful night no one knew of their affair. But, oh how sad was the truth as it swept across the community and directly into the lives of her grieving husband and sons. Oh, make no doubt about it “sin” has a BIG price to pay at the end of the line!

Today, our churches, more than ever, need to be WARNING stations echoing to its people of the impending doom and heartache at the hands of the Deceiver. Believe me when I say, “Where there is smoke there will always be a fire.”

Once an evil spirit of deception and darkness enters into the camp the people are often blinded without strength as it winds its way in and out of the lives of those it seeks to devour. These types of cooperate Sin must be exposed and stopped by intercessory prayer, fasting, and the WORD of GOD. Great prayer and supplication must be made for all men everywhere.

And, in many occasions, if and when sin does enter into the camp it is imperative that God’s instructions on discipline, found written within the pages of the Bible, be followed and executed with great love and patience knowing that the end goal is to restore, reunite, and return godly fellowship between God, all involved parties, and the local assembly.

Oh, in today’s world so many do not believe in church discipline…So many would rather the sins of darkness simply remain in the dark…But, sin doesn’t like staying in the dark forever…After sin has reached a certain quota of destruction it will rear its ugly head surprising even the most unsuspecting man, woman, boy, or girl. But, the church MUST GO ON!

When our daughters were at home growing up, my husband and I would always tell them that the church was not a perfect place, people were not perfect, and that we were not perfect either. But, we assured our daughters that we belonged to and served a PERFECT GOD! It is ONLY GOD who is Perfect in Love. Perfect in Forgiveness. Perfect in Mercy. And, Perfect in restoration.

We did not teach this doctrine as an excuse for us or others to “sin,” but rather for the purpose of our daughters not becoming harmed, hurt, and discouraged by the wrongful and sinful acts of those within the church who had fallen. You haven’t really lived until you fully understand what all can go on within the walls of a local assembly! God have mercy…

Over the years, I have discovered that our only defense against Satan is to have an even greater Offense…How do we accomplish this? I feel that we accomplish this by teaching people the Truth about sin, Satan, lies, and deception. We must teach younger and older Believers alike that the one person within the church who seems to be living the holiest of all lives can easily be misleading the entire congregation by living a double-life. It is urgent that we prepare the unprepared heart to hear, know, and accept the Truth… What is the truth? That ALL have sinned and come short of the GLORY OF GOD…ALL like sheep have gone strayed. We must teach our children and others to pray, pray, pray for one another.

But, as Believers, aren’t we glad that JESUS PAID IT ALL…Jesus paid the terrible price of Sin at Calvary’s Cross…And, by TRUSTING in Him we too can become overcomers just as Christ overcame the grave. We have the POWER to overcome sin and temptation in the Name of Jesus!

Believe me when I say that Satan loves to go after innocent Believers through the wrongful acts of church leaders…Satan will pound, pound, pound away with his powerful demonic hammer until the strongest of leaders can fall…That’s why the WARNING of SIN must, must be sounded; and sounded often!

It’s simply NOT enough to just tell the sinner that God loves him…We must also WARN both the sinner and saint alike that Satan hates them and wants to destroy their life while here on planet Earth; and throughout all eternity.

We must explain and teach that the church should NOT be seen as a playground to wink at “sin.” The church is our headquarters sending believers out to engage in spiritual combat on spiritual battlefields where man’s soul hangs in the balance.

We, as Believers, must be fully equipped and fully dressed in God’s armor to engage ourselves in spiritual warfare in a most effective and decisive manner; and having done all to STAND firm against the wiles of the Devil; and not to fall into diver temptations. (See I Corinthians 10:13).

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Sin has a terrible price…And, in time ALL acts of unconfessed and unrepented sins will be made manifested and revealed from shore to shore for the sin it is. Are you really prepared? Are we really prepared?

Oh, that our merciful Heavenly Father and LORD would Send the LIGHT! Send the LIGHT! Send The Blessed Gospel Light to convict the hearts of every man, woman, boy, and girl to turn away from sin, repent, and restore rightful peace and fellowship with God and with others before it is too late. To God be the Glory…Amen… In love, you have now been warned…

Remember, God Loves You!

Are You a Thief?

Are You a Thief?

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy….(

John 10:10 a)

“Are you a thief?” Before you answer, “No” to that question, you might want to reconsider. First, let’s look at who a thief is and what a thief does…

The basic definition of a “thief” is one who steals or robs something that doesn’t belong to them. A thief is only interested in satisfying his or her own desire at any given expense. So, you might answer once again, “Well, that’s not me; I’m not a thief.” Wait a minute; let’s dig deeper.

A thief basically “takes” things away from others. A professional thief can break into a resident or business in a matter of minutes taking away many valuable assets. When the owner(s) return they are devastated over their losses. And, as good as our law enforcement officials may be many times stolen items are never recovered or returned.

Now, let’s look closer at other ways “things” can be taken away or stolen from us against our will. Have you ever been having a good day when you receive an unexpected phone call from a very negative person and suddenly your Joy is gone? Joy taken. Have you ever been excited about a situation or matter when those around you don’t share in your enthusiasm and suddenly you feel your intrinsic motivation draining from your soul? Enthusiasm taken. Have you ever thought you had a friend or relative whom you could confide until one day you discover that they have been talking badly about you behind your back and sharing all of your secrets? Confidence taken. Have you ever offered a smile, friendly gesture, or kind word to someone and they failed to reciprocate on any level? Warm heart taken.

See, a thief can be responsible for taking away more things from us than just physical belongings. In the New Testament book of John, Jesus calls Satan a thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy. It is a professional thief, Satan, who steals our Joy, kills our Enthusiasms, and destroys our Confidence in others and within ourselves. Thieves can even steal, kill, and destroy a person’s self-esteem, positive outlook on life, and many times a person’s love and enjoyment of life. Thieves love to destroy by taking…

Without realizing it, you could actually be a thief robbing and stealing positive energies and positive emotions away from those around you or even people you pass on the street. Your negative attitudes and/or self-centeredness could be stealing away and destroying someone else’s life, joy, self-value, peace-of-mind, and self-esteem. That’s right…A thief will even attempt to steal away a person’s self-esteem leaving them feeling worthless, hopeless, and wondering what’s the use. Remember, nothing good comes from a thief!

There’s only one way to stop a thief…Put a “guard” on your heart and over your life. The next time that devilish old thief comes prowling around your door take the Word of God out and put it right into his or her face and shoot away! Let the thief know that your JOY is grounded in God’s Word and God’s strength. Let that old thief know that your enthusiasm comes directly from God’s throne on high. And, let that old thief know that you are going to trust God with your inner feelings, emotions, and secrets instead of that person you just met a few days ago or weeks ago; no matter how friendly or safe they seem to be…Let God be your best friend in everything; then ALL of your secrets will be forever safe…

And lastly, don’t let a thief cheat you out of another second of blessings. You are a child of the King…Lift up your head; give the world a smile…If your smile is sincere and your unselfish gestures are filled with gladness of heart then it doesn’t matter how the person or persons respond, because GOD sees and hears all…Your rewards are great in heaven! The rewards and recognitions we receive here on earth will one day fade away, but our Heavenly rewards will be forever! Let your treasures be in Heaven and let your heart be where your treasures are!

Now, let me ask the question again, “Are you a thief?” I hope not. I hope that you are living your life in such a way that you don’t go around attempting to steal, rob, kill, or destroy another person’s life, their dreams, hopes, faith, or reputation…I also hope you don’t try to steal people’s joy, happiness, or peace of mind…After all, God himself “hates” sin and taking away from someone what doesn’t belong to you is a sin…

Trying to take away, steal, kill, or destroy a person’s Joy, Love, Peace, Hope, Faith, and Trust are all works of a thief; the master thief…So, be real careful the next time you put someone down or try to harm them with any type of verbal communications. Because, any way you put it the works of a thief are the direct works of the enemy; God’s enemy; Satan. Don’t be a thief!!!

Remember, God Loves You!

Deception…Satan’s Tool

Deception…Satan’s Tool

The Power of Deception…

In my last blog, I wrote about Trust…Less than an hour after I posted that blog, God led me to read an article and Scriptural verses on Deception…Not only are so many people lacking and unwilling to put their Trust into the ONLY ONE who can be fully trusted, but they have also allowed themselves to become heavily seduced by Deception; Satan’s Powerful Tool…Very sadly, I know this terrible fact from personal experiences within my own family…I’m sure you do, too.

Let me give you a very clear definition of Satan’s role in Deception: ANYTHING that we are believing in or acting upon that is contrary to the Words of God found written in the Bible is a LIE directly from the Father of Lies, Satan…A continual, day by day, consistent way of life that is knowingly in contrast to the teachings of God’s Word is a Bondage of Deception…This my friend is a very serious bondage indeed…

Sadly, the distortion of Scripture is one of Satan’s most powerful tools in the lives of those enslaved to the bondage of Deception…Satan always tells those in bondage, “No, that’s not what that Scripture means, it really means this or it really means that.” Satan tells those in bondage-to-deception that it is alright to hate, not to forgive, to condemn, to judge, to mistreat, to be indifferent, and to feel that they are always in the right and everyone else is in the wrong…Satan loves to work in the realms of a person’s ego when they are being deceived; boosting them into believing they are right and those in opposition to their ways and follies are clearly in the wrong. Many ugly lies hide behind pretty faces…

Oh, my friend, I have witnessed the lives of many ministers who have fallen into the bondages of deception leading their families and congregations into believing that if it doesn’t come from “their” mouth then it has to be wrong. They may tell you to “read” the Bible for yourselves, but if you do NOT come to the same conclussions that they possess then they will tell you, “That’s not what it means.” Then, they will persuade you into beleiving that they have some sort of intelligent “inner” source into the Power of Interpretation of the Scriptures…I have witnessed these deceived preachers taking sections of Scriptures and putting them together to build a case supporting their own personal agendas and ideologies. And, sadly I have watched a many undiscerning believers entranced by their false teachings!

Many of these types of deceived ministers are very smart, clever, charismatic, filled with self-certainties, and false assurances in so much so that many people believe “they” are the ones to follow. Sadly, these ministers reject the fundamental teachings of God’s Word, and they reject those long-standing fundamental preachers who do not “shine” within their own spotlight, but stand assured only in the True spotlight of God.

Oh, but do not be so easily fooled, TRUTH will prevail. One most assured day Truth will prevail…And those sadly enslaved in the bondages of deception will be exposed for who they are and what they are…Men in white-washed tombs. Meaning, they look so appealing and trust-worthy on the outside but full of dead-man bones…

My heart breaks for those who have been mislead and lured away from God’s Biblical teachings to false teachings and false acts of Hope…For many of these held in Satan’s Bondage-of-Deception it is easier for them to “love” the ones they do not know rather than to love the ones they do know…Or, they will only surround themselves with those who believe as they believe and do as they do…Anyone else who is opposed to their teachings or ways are forbidden to “walk” within their spear or realm of life; including close family members who do not see as they see or do as they do.

According to the Words of God, the only way to be rescued from Deception is to be filled with the Truths of God as written in God’s Words alone…One must read the Scriptures for himself or for herself. Steadfastly and daily read what, “Thus saith the Lord,” not what so and so says about it… The Bible teaches, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32 KJV). Only GOD’S WORD IS COMPLETE AND TOTAL TRUTH!

If the Bible teaches us to be ye kind, tenderhearted, forgiving, and loving one towards another then that is exactly what it means…FOR GOD IS LOVE….And, NO where in the BIBLE does it teach for one to be “indifferent” and to “separate” themselves from those who do not agree with your every man-made belief, wish, or desire. That my friend is the definition of CONTROL in the highest sense of the word….Both mind control and emotional control…

Today, want you help me to pray for those who are in bondage to deception? Help me to pray that they will come out and see the LIGHT for themselves and come to know JESUS at HIS WORD…Blessed Be the Lord, let it be so. Amen.

God is Light…

God is Light

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in him is no darkness at all.” (I John 1:5 KJV)

Nothing evil can come from God. God is Love. God is Light. God is Good. Because of the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, we live in a world that possesses the knowledge and manifestation of both good and evil…Yet; evil is NOT of God…It is not God who moves upon a man’s heart and spirit to bring forth evil acts of violence, unkindness, hate, malice, or harm…It is the direct influence of God’s enemy, Satan.

Back in the 70’s there was a popular TV actor who coined the phrase, “The Devil made me do it.” In many ways he was right. The Devil does influence bad judgment and wrongful actions on our part. But, he doesn’t “make” us do them. Satan only plants such evil thoughts into our hearts and mind, but we decide whether or not to act upon them. I once heard a young lady say, “Well, if you’re going to think it, you might as well do it!” What a dreadful thought! Thankfully, I had the opportunity to share some insight regarding her dangerous philosophy. I explained to her that she could sit around all day long thinking about and pondering planting a garden. In her mind and thoughts, she could clear the area, plow the area, and even plant seeds in the area. But, she would NEVER reap a harvest! To reap a harvest, she would actually have to perform the needed tasks; not just “think” about them. Fortunately, she agreed with my words of insight. As children of God, we must learn to discern thoughts of “darkness” from thoughts of “light.” How do we do that? By knowing God’s Word…If our thoughts do not line up with God’s word, then they are not from God…

God’s Word is a LIGHT unto our path. The more we know God’s word, the more our pathway is illuminated; for God’s ways are not hid from us…There is no darkness at all in God…(no evil).

Today, you may be in need of guidance or direction…Just remember, you never have to walk in darkness when you are walking with God…God’s Path can always be found when measured by His Word…

Remember, God Loves You!

Who is On the Lord’s Side…

Who is on the Lord’s Side?

If My People…II Chronicles 7:14

Well, depending upon your belief system; or lack thereof, today’s Supreme Court decision in America is either one of victory or defeat. Since I am a “Christian Believer and Follower” in God, through Christ Jesus, and firmly believe that HE made a woman for a man and a man for a woman, it is a sad day of defeat; indeed. But, our God will NEVER be defeated…For HE knows all…The Bible clearly teaches that there will come a day when “good is called evil, and evil is called good” (Isaiah 5:20). We have reached such a day. To me, Christians should take to the streets in droves in protest of today’s ruling. Yet, most of us will sit in silence only shaking our heads in disgust as another immoral decision plummets our nation further and further into idolatry and sin.

I really don’t understand why the news media or certain governmental personnel use the phrase, “Pray for the victims,” when tragedy strikes within our nation…Sure, it sounds nice, well-meaning, caring, and sympathetic, but who are they praying to? The God of the Bible; Creator God?? If they believe in Creator God, then why do they NOT believe in HIS scheme of creation; a man and a woman? Why don’t they believe in HIS commandments? Why don’t they believe in His standards, values, and teachings for life and living? Why don’t they believe in the Bible; His Word? Why are they so eager to celebrate the things that go AGAINST God and God’s way and make light and poke fun of those things HE teaches and endorses? Because, simply put, “they are blinded to the truth.” And, Jesus said of himself, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6).

Actually, it is a very, very sad day. The homosexual community sees “followers of Biblical teachings” as “haters, hypocrites, and bashers.” God sees us as trying our best to “warn” those living in “sin” to come out, repent, and accept God’s design for His creation. If God had gotten it wrong in the Garden of Eden he could have made two men and two women and told them to “choose” and “decide” which one they wanted to co-habitat with…And, He would have made both sexes capable of bearing children to procreate the world; His world…But, HE did it RIGHT! Yet, through man’s own self-wickedness he has turned God’s way into a lie. It was not God’s intention for a man to be with a man nor a woman to be with a woman in a sexual, sensual manner. People, honestly, do you realize that the President of the United States of America called a gay pro basketball player to congratulate him on where he puts his personal anatomy? That is what this show-down is ALL about…Where you decide to put your personal anatomy! Do you put it where God created it to be put, or do you choose to put it where GOD designated body waste to exit? Think about it. God created a man’s seed to be implanted into a woman’s body in order for it to bring forth life…Yet, there are those who wish to plant their human seed in the place of dung and waste; where NO life can ever originate or grow healthy. Ask yourself this question…Who is God’s enemy? The answer is Satan. Satan does NOT want life as God created and intended it to be…So, its “kuddos to Satan” each time a man places his seed in the place of dung and waste and not life! The same with abortion…Every baby aborted is another “kuddo to Satan” for interrupting God’s natural flow of life and means of procreation. Don’t kid yourself, this is NOT just a choice of life-style, it is a choice of Idolatry against God Almighty; and God will NOT sit silent on these matters forever…

What homosexuals, and those like our president who supports such life-styles, don’t realize is that when a “human being” decides that their way is better than God’s way it is Idolatry…They are saying, “Well, God, you aren’t as smart as you think you are. We have found a better way. Sure, you made a woman for a man, but we like it this way better.” Think about it. When Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, he tempted her with, “My way is better than God’s way.” And, to this day every time a person tries his or her own way because they feel it is better than God’s way, he or she is demoting God and exalting self…Sound familiar? Sure, it does…What did Satan say he would do? Seven times he said that he would “exalt” himself above God…(Isaiah 14). Anytime “something” or “someone” is exalted above God, it is Idolatry…The nation of Israel was eventually marched off into captivity because of Idolatry! Even God’s first commandment states, “Thou shall have NO others gods before me.” Idolatry is God’s number one in God’s top ten!

Friend, today is a sad day in America. A sad day indeed. Some may argue or debate that “sin” is “sin” and that “all” sin is equal. That’s true..All “sin” is transgression against a Holy God; and yes, we have all sinned and come short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23). But, there are sins that hold greater consequences. And, according to the Book of Romans, chapter one, our God will not hold the sin of homosexuality or those who commit it guiltless…”Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature (Satan and mankind) more than the Creator (God). For this cause GOD gave them up unto vile affections; for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And, likewise also the man, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain GOD in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient” (Romans 1:25-28).

God, have mercy on America as she falls further and further into Idolatry and sin. In thy wrath, O LORD, remember Mercy. Amen.

Betrayal…Signs of the Time?

Betrayal…Signs of the Second Coming? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
We are most definitely living in peculiar times. I don’t think I have ever heard of so many good people and good families facing such difficult battles and hardships arising from betrayals, deceptions, criticisms, and false or misleading accusations.
It is never Satan’s intentions to build and protect “unity” among the brethren. His goal has always been to “sow seeds of discord” whenever possible; even in the closest of families, friendships, or churches. And, believe me he doesn’t miss an opportunity to do so! He’s always on the prowl to find “someone” who will aid him in his destructive schemes. Sadly, he doesn’t have to look too wide or too far.
Words are powerful and when we are NOT using them to encourage or build up others, we can very easily be using them to tear down and discourage. I have always heard that if a person will speak negatively about someone to you, then they will speak negatively about you to someone. We can all find negative things to say about one another, because we are all human and we all fall short of the Glory of God. In other words, none of us are perfect; no not one.
As Christians, we learn that there are the sins of commission (doing or saying something wrong; or possessing the wrong attitude) and the sins of omission (failing to say or do that which is right, good, or proper). At times, all of us have missed chances and opportunities to do good. And, sadly, we often mess up by saying or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time; as well. But, God gives us “Good News” for such times. He teaches us to “love” one another and to “forgive” one another; exhorting, encouraging, and building up those in the faith. After all, we are family; God’s family.
But, somehow that Biblical principle has gotten lost in the shuffle of modern-day society. I know years ago it was common to hear Christians greet one another as, “Sister So-and-so,” or “Brother So-and-so.” But, that’s considered “old-fashioned” now a days. The book of Titus teaches how the older and younger Christians are to inter-relate one with another; giving honor and respect to the older and caring for the younger by being good examples and teachers of the Faith. However, our society has become so “youth” driven with more and more “novices” in leadership roles that foundational principles such as “honoring” and “respecting” our elders is no longer valued; neither given nor received. How sad. It seems “betrayal” at all levels of life has become the “norm” of our land.
But, in actuality, that is exactly what happened to Christ. He was betrayed by the “kiss” of a friend only hours before he was to be crucified. So, perhaps all of this increased betrayal, deception, and false accusations are simply “signs” of Jesus Christ’s soon return! After all, the Bible does teach us that the “love of many shall wax cold,” and things in general will wax worse and worse the closer to Christ’s return.
So, let us comfort one another with these reminders from God’s Word, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” “Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect?” and “Who shall separate us from the Love of God?” Oh, my friend, don’t let the pains from betrayal, rejection, deception, and false accusations get you down and discouraged. You are not alone. Look up! For our redemption draweth nigh!

Remember, God Loves You!

The Bible…Lamp Unto My Feet

The Bible…Lamp Unto My Feet…

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105)

If you live in America, you are most likely aware of the new History Channel series, “The Bible.” For the past three Sunday nights in a row, it has been the number one rated television program watched between the hours of 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Americans are hungry for good entertainment as well as hungry to know more about God. The combination has resulted in a “hit” TV series.

But, wait! Two days ago controversy showed up! It seems that the character playing Satan has a strong physical resemblance and appearance to our nation’s president, Mr. Obama. What?! Naturally, the media is in a frenzy suggesting that the writers and producers of the show deliberately made Satan’s character to look like the President. What?! Are you kidding me?

My first thought on the subject was wondering if Charlton Heston’s portrayal of Moses favored anyone’s uncle or grandfather? Surely, he must have favored someone while in character! Perhaps, not the President of the USA, but someone! And, what about all the men who have played Roman soldiers down through the years nailing Jesus to the cross, do they look like anyone you know? And, I’m pretty certain that one lady who portrayed Mary Magdalene in one of the many versions of Bible movies favored a distant cousin of mine! Stop the presses! These allocations must be investigated!

But, let’s be real…We are talking about the character of Satan looking like President Obama…Mmmm….Coincident…Planned…Coincident…Planned….Mmmm. You decide…I’m sure there are as many answers to that question as there are noses in the world…So, those who love and adore our President are offended. Those who don’t share in his popularity are possibly having a good laugh…Perhaps, we will find other characters creeping in who look like famous people we know…Wait…That would be, oh yea, Actors and Actresses…But, I haven’t seen Tom Cruise or Ryan Reynolds or Sandra Bullock or Meg Ryan or Diane Lane….Mmmm….But, I’ll keep watching just in case! In the meantime, I just hope the “STORY” of the real BIBLE gets across to viewers that GOD is HOLY and GOD LOVES YOU AND ME….

So, the heart of the matter…The next time you put on a church play, production, musical, television program, or even walk down the street make sure you don’t look like one of the nation’s top ranked politicians; especially the President…Sorry, Mr. President…

Author’s Note: What are my personal feelings about the series, “The Bible?” Well, I’m enjoying it, but as with most movies the BOOK is always better!

Remember, God Loves You!
