    Excuses In The Land Formerly Known as Shinar, As Well As Our World...

    Good Afternoon, or Morning to All of You....

    As we continue to follow the news within Iraq, many have been awoken to the reality of great deception that exists within the media that exists in our world... For those of us who believe that scripture is the Word of God, it should not come as a surprise that this world cannot, and should not be trusted in its present state because of the evil that permeates the governance of it... This does not mean that there are not individuals who are involved in government that do not want to do what is right for those who they represent within their respective countries of course... But I do believe, even within a democratically run governance in order for it to be for the people, those who are governing have to be of moral standards in order for it to benefit the nation...

    Those who founded this country understood this as well, and as we have seen over the decades the decline in moral behavior has lead to individuals being elected that are basically godless, and are deceived by ultimately being used by the enemy of mankind... But as the One True God has declared throughout His Word the bible, sin, and the unrepentant practice thereof has consequences that has been the downfall of many great nations, or empire throughout the centuries that mankind has existed... Nothing has changed, and nothing will... Sin breeds suffering, and destruction, and cannot possibly exist side by side successfully within a world where there are individuals who are striving to live in accordance to the will of God...

    What is transpiring within Iraq from a democratic perspective will be short lived at best simply because the true will of our Creator God is not being exercised by those who govern this nation... The advantage that the US had at its founding was the fact that we had individuals within the country who were true bible believing Christians... And when I declare short lived, the meaning behind that statement in my mind is that it will not last 200 plus years IMHO... There is just a part of a much greater plan that is being allowed by our Creator to be implemented the ones who truly control the governments of this current world we reside in... But this is a reality that we are facing within this country as well... We are headed towards a tyrannical form of governance unless the people of this nation decide to repeal certain laws that our Eternal God considers abominations, and seeks the spiritual will of our Father in heaven... It begins with repentance through His Son Jesus Christ, and on God's terms of course...

    Whether one wants to believe it or not, this country is not longer one that is governed by those who truly want to obey God... It has been this way for quite a long time... Oh yes, we have those who have declared themselves to be as such, but actions do indeed speak louder than mere words... Declaring oneself to be a Christian, or having a photo op of oneself entering, or exiting a church building, does not make one a true believer... Just like one does not do God any favors by attending a service once a week, and live in a state of immorality as the Lord God defines it... HE will not be mocked, and will not listen to an individual who has fooled themselves into believing that salvation is exercised in this fashion...

    Which his why the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy within his 2nd letter, chapter 4 verses 1-4 that many would seek teachers, pastors, priest, ect. that would declare what they wanted to hear, even if the Word of God is misrepresented, in order to suit the lifestyle that one has chosen to live... Which is why there are so many sects of Christianity within our nation... God is not the author of confusion, but Satan is... And just because a building is erected, and declared Christian, does not make it so... What spirit leads a congregation is what is of utmost importance... Whether it be God's Holy Spirit, or the alternative...

    Again examining a nation, and the character of it in a proper fashion, does require the Spirit of the Living God... But one can only receive HIM through that which is declared within scripture...

    A little bad leaven, if allowed to be maintained, will grow, and eventually permeate every aspect of what it has originally affected... God's Word points this out, and our country is a clear illustration of this... While many have been blinded into believing that we are OK with our Creator as long as our economic circumstances are good, thus allowing for the emergence of a pagan society to be implemented... Many of us have fallen prey to being 'lukewarm' over the years of our calling out of Babylon, or a satanic way of thinking or living our lives...

    So whichever "ism" one wants to use as it pertains to our world, paganism, Satanism, Luciferianism, Communism, the list goes on, and on, the devil has certainly been successful in once again bringing the world to spiritual state of being that will eventually lead to a great falling away as 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 points out... The acceptance of sinful behavior, even within so called Christian churches has led to this spiritual demise, and frankly, as the definition of the "ism's" mentioned earlier within this paragraph are defined as, is altogether anti-God... There are other "isms, but you get the point!...

    The practice of sin, and the acceptance of it has lead to a great deal of deception, and lies being accepted as truth, simply because it has an adverse affect on those who choose to live that sort of lifestyle... And one sin leads to another, and eventually another, until it defines the character of oneself, and eventually the nation as a whole...

    As we near the end of this age, we see science also being used to misrepresent the truth in what is transpiring within our world... A perfect example of this is the theory as it pertains to global warming, and why it exists... History has proven that droughts, famines, and the like have existed throughout mankind's history... And the reason for these conditions is because our Creator has used them as a form of punishment for lawless behavior... So Satan has managed to propagate the myth about the increase in temperature due to mankind's use of fossil fuels, and the increase of carbon dioxide...

    Well, carbon dioxide is actually good for plant life, and trees, but has been promoted via the media as something that has to be eradicated in order for mankind to survive... But carbon dioxide helps the trees, and plant life to remain healthy, and thus produce cleaner air for us to breathe... But a lie, if propagated enough by seemingly responsible sources, will eventually be embraced by individuals who discernment has been clouded by the acceptance, and practice of lawlessness as defined by God Almighty...

    Although our Creator has clearly shown who is ultimately in control of weather patterns, HE will also use this control to punish a nation, or world that has ignored, and rebelled against His admonishments as it pertains to iniquity... Basically, Satan has covered His bases, and in time the lie will indeed be embraced... Because as sin defines a nation, and the world in general, it is much easier to fool the population into believing misinformation, and distortions of the truth because transgressions has become how the world lives as a whole... Heaven forbid if one accepts the fact that sin is wrong, and leads to natural disasters right?... We have become to technologically advanced, and sophisticated to allow for that way of thinking to be accepted as just, and right...

    Those who cling to the Truth, or Jesus Christ, will indeed be hated by all nations at this point yet future as our Savior pointed out in Matthew chapter 24... Which is why our Loving God made it abundantly clear through various prophets, and servants of His that this is a "spiritual" battle... Which in turn will effect our physical world... It begins from within, and decisions that we make beginning with the spirit that all who live have within our physical bodies, have a bearing on how our Creator God judges us as individuals...

    Those who are defined, and weakened by sin, are made subject to demonic, Satanic influence, which in turn leads to the hatred of the saints of God... So expect the escalation of persecution of "true" believers in Messiah as scripture points out... Do not allow for the prosperity gospel to mislead, and dilute the Truth as it concerns believers in the One True God...

    Being wiser than the serpent requires the indwelling of God's Spirit... And in order to ensure the HOLY SPIRIT dwells within oneself, that individual must be growing in grace, and knowledge... This requires the proving of doctrine, and even more importantly the overcoming of sinful behavior... Which is the main reason our Savior died for us... Jesus was not crucified in order that we continue in, or justify transgressing God's commandments...

    The children of God are being tested by their Father in heaven, and we must understand that our need for HIM fully in us requires an honest assessment of who we are, and where we stand from a spiritual perspective, when compared to God's Eternal Word... Redefining, or recreating God in our own image will certainly not do one any favors, and will lead to that individual being spiritually destroyed...

    This wealth received from this investment will indeed be a test for the children of the MOST HIGH GOD... Will we allow for the physical mammon to cause us to stumble, and become spiritual virgins who are foolish, and have fooled themselves into believing that physical wealth is an indicator or God's favor?... Or will one understand that it is the BREAD of LIFE, or the SPIRITUAL MAMMON that Christ Jesus represents in every way is what is necessary to overcome the world, and be the living sacrifices that God wants us to be in a world filled with wickedness?...

    Until the return of Jesus Christ, this spiritual battle continues, and will increase in intensity... Without our Savior fully in us, and our submitting to HIS sovereign will, one will fail to endure to the end... That end of course being when one dies, or if that individual is alive at the blowing of the 7th, and last trumpet of God Almighty by the HIS angel...

    His kingdom is coming, and is the only hope that mankind truly has... As Christ Jesus declared to Pilate in the gospel of John chapter 18 verses 33-37, His kingdom is not of this world... Those that believe on Him must also understand that is the case as it pertains to how we should view ourselves within this present evil age we live in... We are "in the world, but not of the world," as pointed out in 1 John... A wonderful letter written by this faithful apostle as to where we stand, and how we should view ourselves as believers in Messiah...

    Ultimately, this is God's world of course... But He is allowing for evil to prevail until the appointed time of His Son's return to destroy the nations that do exist at the time of His coming, and pointed out in Daniel chapter 2, chapter 7, and the book of Revelation just to name a few places within scripture... A very harsh lesson mankind will have to learn for our own good from a spiritual perspective... For the wages of sin is death, and destruction as Romans chapter 6 verse 23 points out...

    But with the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of the Lord God Jesus Christ, mankind will eventually see the benefit of God's Way of life, and what HE had intended for us all along during His thousand year reign, or what I like to call the 7th age... Each day of the week does represent a thousand years, and this 7th age will indeed be a time of rest from the perils that are a result of lawlessness, and the mystery thereof...

    As God intended before the beginning of the foundation of the world with the creation of time, we must always remember that HIS will, regardless of the physical circumstances that exist in our world, is always being accomplished ultimately... For as 2 Peter chapter 3 verses 8- 9 point out... "But beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day...
    The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."...

    I highly recommend reading all of 2 Peter's 3 chapters... There is so much going on in our world as it pertains to the words written by this apostle within this letter... Many are being deceived by false apostles by the misrepresentation of scripture, as well as covetedness means... In other words, false prophets or teachers that are not out for the 'spiritual' best interest of those who have chosen to follow these men... With the use of God's name in vain, or for purposes not in line with the will the Lord, many are being lead down the primrose path of destruction... We must be careful to discern such hirelings, and their devices while remembering that ultimately our TEACHER is the LORD JESUS CHRIST... He made this abundantly clear in Matthew chapter 23 when addressing his apostle's as well as other believers in HIM as it pertained to the Pharisee's, and their wickedness... When Jesus Christ declared there would be many false prophets in Matthew chapter 24, He did so in order that we remember that we prove all things in accordance to HIS will... Peter's 2nd letter also points out in chapter 1 verse 19-21, and chapter 2 verse 1-3...

    But again it depends on ones spiritual condition, and what an individual wants to hear, rather than what needs to be heard... We can certainly be our own worst enemy, and the only reason a false prophet, or teacher succeeds is because he has those who are willing to listen, and follow them...

    Our Great Father in heaven has had a plan of salvation from the beginning, and He has always known the end from the beginning because He is not confined by time... God bless you all, and lets keep it in perspective while allowing ourselves to receive the council by the Great Counselor with the indwelling of God's Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus our Lord, and Savior... For our God is ONE, and worthy to be praised, and to be glorified forevermore...

    Peace Be With You in Christ Jesus,

    When it is all said, and done can we declare that we did our best to live our lives in accordance to our Loving God's desire... Were we a pleasing sacrifice, and a sweet smelling aroma for the Creator Yahweh in how we represented Him... It is never too late to repent, for His mercy is greater than any sin...

    How Great is the love of God?... Well, He is love, so it must be beyond comprehension, and what mere words can express... Treasure God's love, and may His Most Holy Spirit continue to guide the hearts of those saints of HIS...
