May 14, 2024 - Cussing Christians?

Well, the Incongruent Confluence is taking shape before our eyes. Notable sport, entertainment, and online personalities are using their platforms to profess Christ and condemn unrighteousness. But while in their diatribe, they fluidly use foul language and equate Christ to a universal vibe.
But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. -James 3:8-12
Christian beware and “remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.” -Jude 1:17-19

One of the hallmarks of these who have not the Spirit is that they claim a higher level of understanding or consciousness that is above the "dogma" of yesterday’s church. Jesus Christ, the Head of The Church is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. He did not change His mind on sin and holiness.

Sanctified believers know that dying to self and renewing our minds is what this life in Christ is. We ought not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers but come out from among them and be separate. We ought not walk as other Gentiles in the vanity of their mind but put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. This means that we should let no corrupt communication out of our mouths but that which is good to the use of edifying, lest we should grieve the holy Spirit of God. -Ephesians 4:29

No, it’s not ok to be a cussing Christian. The very notion is an oxymoron. Remember how when Peter denied our Lord Jesus, it wasn’t until he began “to curse and to swear” that they believed that he was not connected to our Lord Jesus.

So, what do we do with the surge of Christian proclamations?

Among these new declarations of faith in Christ are genuine new births, false conversions, and deceivers. Remember what John the Baptist said, “Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance”. Repentant, Spirit-filled hearts are revealed by good works and fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

James 5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

May 01, 2024 - An Open Door

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Matthew 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

The Open Door in scripture does not always refer to a way of avoiding certain destruction, but there is a clear pattern regarding the open door as a way of escape:
  1. God warns of a time to come
  2. God tells the righteous to watch, prepare, and be ready
  3. The righteous get ready
  4. The Lord opens a door
  5. The righteous escape through the door
  6. The Lord shuts the door
  7. Sudden change for those who did not escape
The big question that all Christians need to ask themselves is: Am I watching, prepared, and ready?

The Warning

Luke 17:26-29 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

I Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

When the Door is Shut

Genesis 7:1, 16 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. ... 16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

Luke 13:25 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: See also Matthew 7:22-23

Where are we now?

No doubt we are presently in the last of the Last Days before the tribulation and Day of the Lord. I believe the Spirit is presently speaking to the Church about the Open Door set before the church in Philadelphia.

Just like the Ten Commandments are meant to bring sinners to repentance, so the seven letters to seven churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 should bring Christians to repentance. These seven churches were literal churches of their day but are also reflections of our current churches all over the world today, conditions of our own selves, and an indication of our place in church history. Most believers would agree that we see our current place in the timeline at Laodicea.

The Lord told 5 of 7 churches that they were not perfect and needed to repent or else.
  • Ephesus: Repent or else I will come and remove your candlestick quickly
  • Pergamos: Repent or I will fight against you with the sword of my mouth
  • Thyatira: Repent or I will cast you into Great Tribulation
  • Sardis: Repent or I will come on thee as a thief
  • Laodicea: Repent (no condition)
The two churches that were not told to repent were Smyrna and Philadelphia. Smyrna is widely recognized as the persecuted church. The Lord tells Smyrna not to fear what they shall suffer. “...be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

To Philadelphia, the Lord says “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. ... 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

How do you measure up against the seven letters to the seven churches? How do you measure up to the gospels? Are you watching, prepared, and ready? Have you kept His word and not denied His name despite all opposition? Then expect to be snatched up by the Lord before the door is shut.

March 07, 2024 - Deepfake

There is a lot of talk these days of Artificial Intelligence. To most people, the topic of AI is obscure but to the initiated, it is a diabolical mechanism of doom.

In and about the late 1990’s the world at large was entering into its transition from analog to digital. Coming of age adults today were born into a digital world, which is completely normal to them, but a digital world can be staggering for anyone older than 40. Folks who experienced a world wherein analog was the norm while digital was yet innovative and vogue sometimes find it difficult to understand “digital people”.

Ten years ago, while this site was in beta, I wrote a News Commentary entitled Google and real androids. It’s coming. This commentary was based on a quote from Google’s co-founder Larry Page who said that Google’s mission is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Several years later, Google published a patent for A system to achieve digital immortality whereby a dead person can go on living via artificial intelligence.

Bottom line, eternal life is always the ploy from proponents of AI. Those who preach and bankroll AI want to accomplish the will of their father the Devil. His longing desire is to have an anti-kingdom like the most high, as above so below. The problem is that AI advocates believe the first lie recorded in the bible; “Ye shall not surely die…ye shall be as gods”. The almighty God will never allow eternal life in this darkness, and in this bondage of corruption. God does offer eternal life to mankind by faith in the finished work of His only begotten son Jesus. He is the resurrection and the life who has already conquered death.

If you follow the logic deductively, you will find that faith in AI presumes faith in Evolution. Evolution devalues the creation of God and attempts to discredit the fact that we were made in His image. If you believe in evolution of the species, then you believe the next evolution of man is inevitable. If you believe that it is inevitable then you can believe the rhetoric of Yuval Noah Harari who is preaching that the age of homo sapiens has come to an end and that the next iteration of existence on earth has already been sparked by man. Yuval believes that the next species will be man-machine hybrids that can live forever.

Christians who study the bible can clearly see that we are chronologically at the end of what has been foretold in scripture. Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a statue in Daniel 2, and Daniel interpreted that, at the time just before Messiah comes, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. This move to mingle themselves with the seed of men is clearly seen in the forceful mRNA injections over the past four years. This platform under the skin, or a brain implant connecting humans to the world wide web would give Satan full control over your person. His goal being every person on earth connected by a digital network the way that every Christian is connected by The Holy Spirit.

Artificial Intelligence is and will only ever be just that, artificial. Sentient only to the degree that it can mimic and build upon the behavioral traits of someone who is actually alive or has actually lived before. In his highly recommended book, THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, Jeffrey W. Mardis does an excellent job combining several scriptural references to show what lengths Satan will go to mimic God.

Here we see the scriptures making direct mention of this counterfeiting system, but it is further elaborated upon throughout the Bible. As a result of this, we find the Bible speaking of another spiritual “father” (Jn. 8:44); another “son” (2Th. 2:3); another “Christ” (Mt. 24:24); another spirit” (2 Cor. 11:4, 1 Jn 4:3); another “church” (Rev. 2:9, 3:9); another “gospel” (2 Cor. 11:4); other “apostles” (2 Cor. 11:13); other “prophets” (Mt. 24:11, 1Jn. 4:1); other “miracles” (Ex. 7:22, Rev. 13:13-15); other “wisdom” (Ex. 28:17, Jm. 3:15). I could list twenty more, but I trust you’re beginning to understand the extend the Devil’s willing to go in order to mimic God, or the thing’s of God, with his own corrupt versions

The term deepfake has entered into contemporary vernacular because AI today is able to generate near perfect digital replicas of something else that is genuine. The ultimate deepfake is coming whereby the world will believe that the long awaited savior of every religion on earth has finally come. His arrival will be “after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders”. Leo Zagami calls it Cyber Satan, but Revelation calls it the Image of the Beast. The bible says that the first beast is wounded to death but then is reanimated (resurrected) somehow. Because of the deception that shall come upon the whole world, Jesus himself told us before not to be deceived, that there will be no mistaking when it’s actually Him, and all else are impostors.

Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. ... 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. ... 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

II Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
