God is in control, even during the Abortion Wars.

 

There has been increasing proof that the Abortion Wars are cloaked in religion, and Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NAF, and others have exploited this fact for decades. Over 85% of post abortive women identify with a ‘religion’. How much more evidence do we need to see that our Risen Savior is used to PROMOTE abortion by deceptive religions and denominations?

This post isn’t just about the sanctity of LIFE, this is about those that clothe themselves in religious garments advocating killing unborn life, outwardly deceiving women. Read more about the proabort pulpit here.

Jeremiah 17:9-10: v9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? v10 I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” 

The ‘Religious’ Coalition for Reproductive Choice is leading this deception to further the abortion agenda within religious circles. These zealots that repeat the abortion mantra have no interest in who Jesus really is; they see him as a man who lived and died, did some good things, never spoke above a whisper. Nothing can be further from the truth. The RCRC [and others] have made Jesus Christ a political figure, not a Savior. People want to know which religion or denomination that advocates for LIFE – but the short answer is don’t follow man, follow Jesus.

Jeremiah 18:7-10: v7 “The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, v8 if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. v9 And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, v10 if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it.” 

God forgives, religion condemns. But will the religious abortion wars repent? We pray that those who believe in aborting God’s creation will relent, repent, and serve God. That is always the hope. Christians with a true relationship with Jesus wants to see souls saved, not condemned to hell; judgement lies with God. I am a sinner saved by Grace, all have fallen short of the Glory of God. Then, even they who have advocated for millions of abortions, can be saved from a hell they deserved, the very same one I deserved before coming to Christ.

God does not forget, nor does He pass by sin without judgement. I assure you, God is quite secure in who He is, not who the sanctimonious believes He is. They have made God a puppet and Jesus a byproduct of Him just to satisfy their agenda to kill unborn children ‘without apology’.

Jeremiah 22:15-17: v15 “Shall you reign because you enclose yourself in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink, and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him. v16He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well. Was not this knowing Me?” says the Lord. v17 Yet your eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness, for shedding innocent blood, and practicing oppression and violence.”

Babylon Rising, a Word for 2016

Christians will have momentary glimpses of Glory but we will be tested. Despite what many religions and denominations teach, this world cannot get better before Jesus comes. But before He does come, we have to occupy and understand that Babylon is not our home, continue to teach and preach: “Preach the word! BE READY in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and teaching,” 2Timothy 4:2 [emphasis mine].

Babylon is rising and encompassing Christians and non-Christians alike. This new Babylon is forcing people who have lived and worked and raised families for generations away from their home to places they never thought possible. The new Babylon targets Christians to force them to commit to their agenda; this has already been proven true recently with ‘gender identity’ and forced ‘refugee resettlements’ and legalizing unborn child murder for 40+ years. The president has shown repeatedly that he is allowing Babylon to take over, reteach, and then target the non-believers of his agenda to wipe out God and morality. The best we can do as American Christians is BE READY; be ready to lose your home, lose your job, and have your Faith tested like never before. You will lose those who you thought were your closest friends, family members and even other ‘Christians’ will be used against you. Each of us has to BE READY to go, to preach, and to love again. Discernment and the Bible will be your guide.

The validity of the Constitution will be compromised, particularly our fundamental right to bear arms. This slow motion remake of ‘1984’ in plain sight should awaken every American Christian but will not. Self-protection will be considered a threat against the government and anyone associated with a ‘____ lives matter’ hate group, among others. These groups, and others, are marginalizing themselves into self-segregation rather than uniting as they say Christians do not do. Do not be fooled, do not let your guard down. Your Faith will be used against you to exemplify their agenda.

The Church is producing large numbers without basic doctrine taught or heeded. The very acts of abortion and sexual sin [homosexuality, plurality, polyamory, etc.] will be celebrated even more so with the help of the government or they will be targeted and categorized as ‘hate mongering’ for professing the Gospel. ‘Inclusion’ is the new  and only agenda. The new Church will be low in numbers but mighty in Spirit. Jesus said to “Go into all the world”, and this will be played out in this dispensation because they will be NO OTHER WAY. Professing Christ will be hate speech, and has already been classified as such in certain groups and associations, most of whom have government funding.

America has been putting up with domestic terrorism of ‘____ lives matter’ rhetoric, murdering unborn children and persecution. This is not a new ‘ism’, this has been festering for decades. Targeting public places of any kind as places of derision of all things against Jesus is the new ‘normal’, like shutting down major expressways for demonstrations, etc.

Too many Christians are doing NOTHING in light speed believing that God will just show up. Of course God can do anything, but it is highly unlikely He will just show up and drag you out of Babylon without prayer, fasting, supplication, and readiness, “Why are we sitting here until we die?” [2Kings 7:3]. BE READYTake the opportunities He gives you during these times of tribulation, “If He breaks a thing down, it cannot be rebuilt; if He imprisons a man, there can be no release”, Job 12:14. 

Even so, there is GOOD NEWS!

God said [Jeremiah 29:4-14] to continue to have a family, work, cultivate, and worship Him WHILE in Babylon until we are brought back from our captivity. Truly, this part of scripture is for today and that day when we meet Him face to face. We cannot lose hope or our Salvation and purpose, we cannot allow persecution to determine who we are in Him or where our Eternal home is. We cannot allow a faulty government and false gods to keep us from bringing more souls to a risen Savior.

Do not waiver but prepare. Gird up with the Truth, hold on and STAND FAST. If you are pushed away from your home, wipe the dust from your feet and go. If you lose your job, wipe the dust from your feet and go. When your church bows to Baal [government funded and approved God haters], wipe the dust from your feet and go. When Jesus said ‘Go out into all the world’, GO:

v16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
v17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues.
v18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.
v19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;
v20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
v21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.
v22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
v23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.” [Matthew 10:16-23]

MYLIFEASACHRISTIAN

The Jezebel Christian

The story of Jezebel is much more than just another account in the Bible. Her spirit is in the Church today and seeks to divide and conquer. A woman that believes she has authority in her church or marriage can have this spirit. Generally the Jezebel Spirit falls upon a woman that is ‘closet’ insecure but domineering; believes she deserves more attention to themselves and their piety. Today’s Jezebel looks like the most faithful of the faithful and is usually a part of the hierarchy in her church.

“And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that Ahab took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him.” [1Kings 16:31]

Contrary to what most people think, today’s Jezebel Spirit is not always sexual in nature, although pride and lust is: “For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” [1John 2:16]

The Jezebel Spirit is seductive, an emasculator of men, jealous, egomaniacal, evil, gratuitous, pious; she is very religious in nature so that the snare looks beautiful, righteous and virtuous. She feeds on others that are much more insecure and immature than she is. More often than not, she is hiding an outward sin that is kept in secret that her ‘followers’ cannot see; i.e.: drinking alcohol, smoking, adultery, spousal abuse, gambling, etc. She is very selective of the people she associates with and has grandiosity issues; no one is more right about anything or better at anything than she is especially when it comes to the things of God. A woman with the Jezebel Spirit will always be a usurper of authority particularly in their own home. She typically runs the household and wears the pants in the family with finances, children and her husband. She buys the houses and cars. The Jezebel Spirit starts at home and gradually goes to Church.

“For so it was, while Jezebel massacred the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah had taken one hundred prophets and hidden them, fifty to a cave, and had fed them with bread and water.)” [1Kings 18:4]

The Jezebel Spirit is part of what is very wrong in the church today. Women were never meant to take authority over her husband, according to Scripture. Instead of going to church to worship she comes to dominate and make a show of it. The rest of us come to church to hear the message and glean from it. Jezebels are part of what Satan does to keep our concentration off the pulpit and on the caste system of the congregation.

“25But there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife stirred him up. 26And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.” [1Kings 21:25-26]

What are the idols in the church today? Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the PRIDE of life [1John 2:16].

There is only one solution to this evil spirit – pray. And pray hard. The Jezebel Spirit will always be a part of every church; learning to recognize her is the first step before she can get the better of you.

And finally, Jesus found this spirit of Jezebel so important and grave that He mentioned her in the fourth of seven letters to the seven churches, the Church at Thyarira, considered the corrupt Church. These letters were to warn these churches that time was about up and there was a lot to clean up. The churches were woefully out of order and had forgotten the first love, Jesus Christ.

“Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.” [Rev 2:20]

What ought did Jesus have against Jezebel? The same problem we have today, false prophets and false prophetesses purposely steering people away from Christ. Eve took the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil AND offered it to her husband Adam because of free will. Jezebel used her free will to seek other gods that complimented her evil nature and took an entire nation and husband along with her; they NEVER go alone. Eve was deceived, was Jezebel deceived as well? To answer that, you would have to prove that Jezebel once knew God.

Jesus loved and held women in such high regard that he remembered the Woman at the Well, the Woman that touched the hem of His garment AND Mary Magdalene, a known woman, who proclaimed Him LORD at the Resurrection. But Jezebel He remembered differently, as an example of false idol worship and non-repentance.

The Pauline Christian

A bunch of years ago, I worked at an upscale beauty salon and heard a curious question: The hairdresser asked her client, “When I highlight your hair, what do you want people to see?” This hairdresser was asking her client what she wanted other people to think when they saw her as their ‘first impression’ of her. This is a great lesson on what people think of us at first glance or impression and that we can change what we look like to garner an opinion, good or bad. In other words, if someone saw you on the street or the mall today, would they see a Christian? Are you sure?

Paul said, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2

While researching this subject, I came across many ‘secularized christian’ denominations regarding the teachings of Paul and found that they follow [if you want to call it that] the teachings of Jesus, but not of Paul the Apostle:

Universalists are rooted in Judeo-Christian tradition and are Christian in that we follow the teachings of Jesus, but not the teachings of Paul, which frankly does not make us Christian by most Christian’s definitions.”

…not Christian? If that ain’t the truth.

And it’s not just universalists that don’t follow the teachings of Paul, most of the emergent movement does not; they feel that Paul was not called or that his Damascus Road experience and ministry was not enough to make his teachings and epistles part of the Word of God or even viable. That being said, they also believe that the Bible CONTAINS the word of God, as if it’s a piece of Tupperware.

Regarding Pauline Christianity: “Reference is made to the large number of non-canonical texts, some of which have been discovered during the last 100 years, which show the many movements and strands of thought emanating from Jesus’ life and teaching or which may be contemporary with them, some of which can be contrasted with Paul’s thought.” Interesting.

Contrasted with Paul’s thought’ is a great example of what pains most pseudo ‘christians’ that endorse the gay agenda and lifestyle, abortion rights, ecumenicalism, and the Liberal agenda…to name a few. They believe that since Christ did not mention these ‘maladies’ that they would not be the abominations that Paul cited and therefore either excused, overlooked or even encouraged: fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals, sodomites, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners [1Cor 6:9-10, Rom 1:29-32].

Paul said, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.” 1Timothy 1:12-15

Paul KNEW he was a sinner! He acknowledged that he was NOT perfect but taught a perfect message that Jesus gave him on the Damascus Road. The relevant ‘easy believism’ that befalls the emergent is not taught by Jesus, it is a demon spirit that seeks to consume and forsake the righteous.

Yes I am getting to a POINT: Even some of the most godly Azusa Street offshoots have been bewitched by not pleading the Blood of Christ or preaching the Holy Spirit inspired teachings of Paul, who was once Saul of Tarsus [Acts 7:58-60, 8:1-3], an evil murderer that was a large part of the ‘church’ of the day. How ironic that someone gets saved from his own church [Acts 9:1-19].

All this being said, the outward appearance of a Christian as a Christian is nearly invisible. We are seen as part of the world with short shorts, miniskirts, men that don’t wear shirts in public, heels that defy gravity or description, foul language, drinking alcohol, gambling [yes, the lottery is gambling], smoking, drugs, adultery, defiling our bodies and fornication…and that’s just the highlights.

“Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God.” 1Thessalonians 4:1-5

Is this a maturity problem of the Christian? Are holiness, modesty and chastity not taught in church anymore? Or is the Emergent Movement making the rest of conservative Christianity look and act like the world to attract moths to the bug zapper? Are we selling ourselves to the highest bidder: “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.” [1Cor 3:16-17]

Considering that Pauline Christianity is too conservative for the ‘modern christian’, wouldn’t it be apparent that the Holy Spirit has been told He is not welcome anymore?

I saw an employment ad for a ‘Growth Pastor’ once. Look and act like the world, but just show up? Is this the future of the Church? Is this the Church that Christ is looking for when He comes back? Of course not…He did not die for the mega church, He died for me and you. And until He comes back, we need to sanctify ourselves because we are His and His ways are correct. And until then:

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

 

Self-Piety of the Brethren

Sufferings….from abusers, criticizers, liars, revilers, the dispassionate – and that’s just from Christians. Just because Christians are saved and spirit-filled does not give them carte blanche to ‘righteously’ sin against the unsaved OR the brethren. We are either achievers or perceivers; the say-ers or do-ers of the righteousness we have as Christians. The perceivers are outnumbering the achievers.

These sufferings we encounter from other Christians are keeping us from being the achievers we are meant to be. Why aren’t we praying more? Why aren’t we giving more? WHY AREN’T WE EVANGELIZING MORE? Because we suffer at the hands of the Brethren that persecute us.

My husband says, “The Church has the only army that kills its own wounded.” Nothing could be truer.

We are hurt, we are tired; we are nearly an inanimate Christian among other Christians that are medicating themselves with church attendance instead of service and worship. Yes, we have the knowledge of saving grace and faith in an eternity with Him, but like the lady said in the commercials…. “WHERE’S THE BEEF?” Where is the meat of the wisdom and LOVE we should have in Christ?

Should we suffer until Glory? We will have tribulations but to suffer because the Brethren ‘righteously’ sin against other believers is not a prerequisite of Heaven. The Apostle Paul said: ‘For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.’ Romans 8:18

Thank God for the Hope we have in Christ and the Glory that will be revealed. Even though we suffer, we still get the prize.

God’s greatest blessings even on a bad day.

I stood in front of about 100 people at my local 40 Days for Life closing rally speaking on behalf of post-abortive women. I felt that I did a mediocre job although friends and family said otherwise. Would they have said that I did not?

On a very bright sunny day I stood there and saw darkness as if a great storm is about to deluge us. I could hardly see and the wind was fierce, so much so it was hard to talk. It was as if I saw only death around me, not Life.

I have a burden for Catholics which is who typically comes to prolife functions, and they seem to like me. I wonder if they think they can proselyte me…hardly; I came out of that bondage a long time ago. But the good thing is that I get the gist of their ‘faith’ when a priest says the rosary and such, while they look at me in wonderment and believe I’m the one going to Hell. Most of my family still calls Catholicism their ‘faith’ and NEVER go to church…they love the arrogance of saying they are Catholic. Even though Catholicism is saturated in false doctrine, at least these Prolifers walk the walk.

But I’m getting off subject here…let me reiterate that I literally saw death that day, so much so that I couldn’t raise my eyes to meet the gazes of those that came to hear me! God was letting me know that even though I love to see their fervor, they are still in darkness doomed to a fiery Hell and that I need to watch my back or that darkness can consume me, too. Christ is the way, not the way of Catholicism.

No wonder most of the world hates God – the world looks to religion to get to know God and that simply cannot happen. Religion killed Jesus Christ and religion will bring Him back in the not so distant future.

The Jezebel Christian

The story of Jezebel is much more than just another account in the Bible. Her spirit is in the Church today and seeks to divide and conquer. A woman that believes she has authority in her church or marriage can have this spirit.

Contrary to what most people think, today’s Jezebel Spirit is not always sexual in nature, although pride and lust is: “For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” [1John 2:16]

But Jezebel He remembered differently, as an example of false idol worship and non-repentance.

 

The Everyday Christian

Can we be so unaware of what life is doing to others every day around us? Jesus said the poor (of spirit and of circumstance) will be with us always, until the end. Christians aren’t supposed to step over them to get to church. But life is happening every minute of every day and nothing is getting done by the Church to put a dent into issues like abortion, homelessness and hunger – and that’s the short list.

I believe in correct doctrine 1000%, absolutely. Christians should have proper teaching from the pulpit regarding the Word of God that we can go out into all the world, as the Bible says, and preach the Gospel to EVERY creature. It is our commandment from Christ to be aware of correct doctrine that we would evangelize the lost. Nevertheless, His other commandment is this: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Should a church have walls? The answer is yes and no.

The Bible says, ‘And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.’ We are commanded to strengthen each other so that we can endure until the end, whether that is our natural death or the Rapture. We need to worship together and fortify our love for the brethren. But is going to church more important than extending a helping hand to those that need it? Some say yes.

“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me…. Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.”

While re-re-re-re-re-re-rereading the Gospels, I am impressed by the Holy Spirit to take notice of the many good works that Jesus did and gave us power to do. He didn’t sit on His doctrine. I was also impressed with the way Jesus and the Apostles evangelized and taught; they went to the people. What Jesus taught and what Paul continued to teach is this: a Christian’s pulpit is in ‘all the world’ every day. Our works are set before us and was known even before we were born. We are intended to be an Everyday Christian, every day.

 “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”

 

Intellectualizing Christianity

All the rah-rah ‘preached’ solves nothing but pats the back of the person in the pulpit. There is nothing more pitiful and unfruitful than a bunch of bible college students stretching their evangelizing muscles with each other rather than going out into ALL the world to preach the Gospel. But just as ridiculous are pastors that glaze over major issues that the Church as a whole faces, and does nothing about. So, what do you do about that?

There is too much personal conjecture in the pulpit. I find that followers of Paul tend to talk of their own way of how they got there instead of getting back to the Words in Red. I appreciate that the Apostle Paul took the Gospel outside of Jerusalem, but we seemed to be much more interested in what Paul said than what Jesus taught.

Paul never capitalized on how he got to where he was in his ministry but the scriptures make mention of his conversion and his persecution. Particularly, Paul’s writings to the Romans were clear, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Simply, even the Apostle Paul knew what was important – Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever; His story will never change and His way is perfect. However, we are not perfect and our way is not like His. The best thing a pastor or preacher can do is expound on the Words in Red in the pulpit and leave conjecture, religion and speculation to the devil.

Social Materialism in the search for Religion

Are we all going to the same place? If all religions were standing at the base of the mountain on a journey to the top, will they all see the same thing?

All denominations, all religions, all sects seek to be the one…the one truth. So people window shop religions looking for the right fit which is just as materialistic as buying a designer bag instead of the purse that fits the need.

A priest, a rabbi and a Baptist pastor (I swear this is not a joke) are on a prominent news show talking about how equal we all are in the search for the same thing – however, no one actually said what that is but my suspicion is their quest for nirvana….‘everybody get together, try to love one another right now…’, you know the rest.

How has tolerance become so forefront? But to be fair, I want to share with you what the priest, rabbi and Baptist pastor actually said, to give them credibility:

  • The priest said that instead of burning books, perhaps we should read them; we might learn something. I say that it would be very beneficial if the priest would actually read the Bible.
  • The rabbi believes yoga should be in every synagogue.
  • The Baptist pastor thinks Jesus was a comedian; she couldn’t quite get the revelation of the camel and the eye of the needle but thought it was darned funny.

Their remarks are not credible, they don’t have the revelation that Christ died that they could be saved and they are leading their congregations off the plank in the middle of the ocean left to be shark bait. But hey, welcome to moral evolution and designer religion! It’s to die for!

The Church forgot all about Jesus.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

Co-exist? Not in my House.
