VIDEO Justifying The Deeds Of The Damned

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”  –First scripture found in the Satanic Bible, written by the black pope, Anton LaVey

I just finished watching a documentary this week on a famous singer who died in the not too distant past.

In this documentary, they started out by showing this young woman and her humble beginnings. She started as a singer for a local Baptist Church leading the praise and worship band. Oh, her humble beginnings.

Talking about a God-given gift! What a voice! Friends, she had it, and she did, to her credit, use it for the glory of God (Psalm 96:1), at least in the beginning stages. How innocent she was, how seemingly pure she was, and how all-American she was in so many different ways.

When she got a little older and graduated from high school, her mother then introduced her daughter to the music scene in New York. We all know what follows after this, nine times out of ten, they are then slowly and incrementally sold out for the cause and purposes of Hollywoods, hellish designers, along with their immoral minions who instruct the up and comers as to how to win the world, and yet, in the end, lose their lives and unknowingly lose their souls (Mark 8:36).

At every step, I noticed that she made decisions to do the things that she chose to do (Deuteronomy 30:19), and at no time did I see anyone force her hand to make the choices that she made.

She first began to distance herself from her real friends. She then began to fornicate (sex before marriage), to use drugs (cocaine, marijuana, drinking, etc.). You get the picture, it simply went from bad to worse real quick.

In short, everything the party life had to offer, she quickly adhered (1 John 2:15-16).  She went from serving Christ to serving the devil in a very short amount of time, and because of the false teachings in the American Church, like so many others, she still thought she was still secure of Heaven (Galatians 5:13).

In short order, and to know one’s surprise, she ended up overdosing on cocaine in a popular hotel in Los Angeles, California and died.

During her eulogy, I watched the footage of movie stars and music stars going up to the Church pulpit and telling of the good times they can remember with this woman while swearing in many cases (Proverbs 10:11; Matthew 12:34; Ephesians 4:25; James 1:26), of how this woman is now in Heaven where The Lord is wholeheartedly and approvingly accepting of her, though she never repented of her sins (Acts 20:21). Isn’t it interesting how heathens have a false assurance of the false Gospel as well as the modern-day churchgoers do? They believed that she is now somehow smiling and that she is happier than ever before “as she, from up there, looks down at the rest of us,” suggesting that she is now in a better place.

Maybe these people should actually take the time and read the Bible for themselves. This is more like the doctrines of the satanic bible “Do what thou wilt” rather then “Thou shalt not!” which is found in The Word of God.

How many times a year in this country do we hear similar stories? It is not just about the rich and famous that we hear these types of unscriptural eulogies.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” -2 Timothy 4:3-4

I am here to tell you that there is nothing further from the truth. All one has to do is ask the man that ended up in Hell and wanted someone to go warn his brothers to testify to them “lest they also come into this place of torment” (Luke 16:28).

Note: You are not to fear Hell friends, you are to fear God (Luke 12:4), and repent before Him (Acts 20:21), and put your faith and Christ (Galatians 3:24; Ephesians 2:8) and “go and sin no more” (John 8:11).

What was the scriptural reply to the man in Hell?

Abraham saith unto him, ”They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.” And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. -Luke 16:29-31

Friends, false teachers are God’s judgment on the people who don’t want God, but in the name of religion, plan on getting everything their little carnal hearts desire.

That’s why false teachers are raised up and are put on the scene. Those people who sit under false teachers are not the victims. False teachers are the judgments of God upon them because they want exactly what the false teachers want, and it’s not God nor His Son Jesus Christ. They just want the benefits from a god that they have, in fact, created in their own minds.

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image…” -Exodus 20:3

A god that looks and acts just like you.

“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”  -Exodus 20:4-5

You can line up false teachers from one end of America to the other end. These are merely teachers of there own makings, as well as the people’s, and all of this is in accordance to their own desires (Exodus 32:4).

So, you get a people-pleasing, false teacher in there to tell the people what they can have, what they can do, and to live without the fear of the Lord in departing from evil (Proverbs 16:6), all in the name of a counterfeit Jesus, in the name of a counterfeit Gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).

When it is all over and these emulators of the devil, while at the same time praising Jesus with their lips (Matthew 5:6), are at the end of their days preached straight into heaven by other false preachers.

I’ve seen it over and over again. A man does drugs and robs a store, and in the process gets killed. During his funeral, because the pastor or priest that had baptized him when he was young somehow or another, ends up in heaven because after all he did his best.

Then there is the man that is such a drunk and beats his wife and doesn’t provide for his children is somehow ushered into Heaven on the day of his death (1 Timothy 5:8). To what are Americans listening to?

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” -1 Corinthians 6:9-10

Scripture is clear:

“He that committeth sin (Exodus 20; 1 John 3:4) is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” -1 John 3:8

“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.” -1 John 5:18

However, we hear from the pulpits across the country, in spite of Scripture, their distorted version of preaching at funerals filled up with people that have hardly ever been in churches, from drug addicts, drunks, adulterers, fornicators, self-righteous, and everything you can imagine. They are all there in church to honor their dead friend, and the pastor (1 Corinthians 12:28) gets up and says, “I praise God I know (Even when he doesn’t) this young man, he sold a lot of wild oats when he was just a young man, and I was the one that led him to pray and receive Jesus as his Lord,” though he never took heed (1 John 2:4, 5:12). He prattles on, “I am here to tell you that he’s in Heaven today,” though he cannot scripturally give you that assurance, and all those lost sinners that attended went straight out of that church and into the streets justified in their sin because of the hireling’s preaching (John 10:12). They are pathetic!

I can hear someone saying that is mean-spirited. Is it mean spirited to preach what Jesus commanded us to preach “Repent for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2)?

If I have the remedy for a man or a woman that is dying from disease and withhold the means whereby they may be healed, is that mean spirited to show them first their disease and second, the One that can heal them?

“They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” -Mark 2:17

The problem with people today is that they do not believe that they need the Great Physician because they do not believe that they have the disease of sin. For the most part, it is because the preachers of the day do not know the Gospel (Hosea 4:6).

“But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block (Because of their pride), and unto the Greeks foolishness (They didn’t believe that they needed a Savior);” -1 Corinthians 1:23

Charles Spurgeon said,

“Seek that gospel which rips up, tears, wounds, hacks and even kills, for that’s the gospel that makes alive again.”

Why? Because it drives men to Christ where they might be saved.

Most church overseers today don’t preach the full counsel of God (Law to Grace) because of their cowardice to offend men, not realizing that sinners are an offense to God (Psalm 7:11).

Congregants today in this country are gospel ignorant because most of the preachers in this country are gospel ignorant.

Salvation is not merely the change of practice, it is the fruit thereof. It’s not turning over a new leaf, it’s not a New Year’s resolutions, it’s not this strong conviction to want to be a different person. None of that is Salvation.

Salvation is a supernatural work of God whereby someone really does become a new creature in Christ (John 3:3).

Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. -2 Corinthians 5:17

In conclusion, the Bible says that we are to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:5).

It also says to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12).

It does not tell us to tag our sleeves to those who we have been taught to know better than we do. That is how slaves are made. We, as individuals, need to begin to dig in for ourselves so that we know whether we are of the Lord and His Spirit or not.

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” -Proverbs 14:12

I started this week’s column with a quote from Anton LaVey.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”

To some, this may be a game to be played. What one needs to take note of is not so much the years that Anton LaVey took in mocking God (Galatians 6:7), or teaching others to do what they wanted in spite of The Lords “Thou shalt Not’s”(Exodus 20). Take note of how LaVey played loosely with his own eternity, and how he responded when the time came that he had to leave this world to face his Creator, because there and there alone was a different story for him to tell (Revelation 20:11-15). It has been reported that as he was dying on his bed that he began to say

“Oh my, oh my, there is something very wrong, there is something very wrong,” as he begs God for mercy as he slips away into Hell.

Anton said that as a Satanist he did believe in the God of the bible but refused to worship him and made a conscious decision to worship Satan instead.” (Personal interview with Susan Atkins, Good Fight Ministries – Truth About Satanic Cults)

In the end, he revealed that most of what he claimed in his life was not true. He was wrong with what he did in this life. He founded the church of the devil and was a big part of preaching to live in the dark side of life, but in the end, a few moments before he died, he said in front of the camera that he was fooled by the devil all his life and now he is going to Hell.

“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” -Romans 14:11

So You Hate Christians? Well, You Wouldn’t Want Me Not To Be One

In each of the Gospels, Christ tells his disciples that the non-Christian world would hate them – not for valid reasons, but because the people of this world hate God himself.

I’m reminded of this every time I hear someone talk about how awful those “religious” people supposedly are – hypocritical, judgmental, self-righteous, seeking to control others, etc. Frankly, such descriptions don’t remotely resemble the vast majority of people I’ve known who call themselves Christians.

Oh, sure, I’ve run into plenty of “religious” hypocrites. I’ve had dealings with people whose “religion” involved trying to hide poor character behind high-sounding talk. If seeing the dysfunctions of “religious” people were all it took to turn someone away from God, I’d have as much reason for turning away as anyone.

But I’ve always understood that God is real and perfect, and that’s never going to be changed by any failures – real or perceived – on the part of people who talk about him. When I’ve seen hypocrisy among Christians, it’s never made me not want to be a Christian; it’s made me not want to be hypocritical.

When I first came to Christ in my youth, it didn’t have a lot to do with the actions or words of people. I didn’t have anyone providing a shining example or an eye-opening testimony. I just happened to read something that introduced me to something beyond “religion” – a real relationship with my Creator. And I simply knew it was right; I had no reason to question it then, nor has any real reason ever presented itself since.

Looking back, I find it downright terrifying to imagine what kind of person I would have grown up to be if I had not been a Christian. As it was, my character weaknesses have been numerous, and my growth has often been slow. But if I had not been guided in the long run by the knowledge of my Creator, it’s clear that I would have been someone who didn’t do much of any good – either to the world around me or to myself.

Whatever you’d think of me if you met me in person, I can guarantee that you’d find me to be an infinitely more pleasant person now than you would have if that crucial change in my life had not taken place.

If I believed that I was not accountable to anything higher than myself, and that I could determine right and wrong for myself, it would not have had a positive effect on my character. Indeed, with human nature being what it is, such beliefs could hardly have positive effects on anyone’s character.

When a person truly encounters their Creator, they’re not just joining a “religion.” They’re getting started on a journey that will change them radically, and for the better. Anything they placed above God will be put into its proper place, or it will taken away altogether – and it will no longer be needed or wanted. What they leave behind may be addiction and crime, or hopelessness and lack of purpose, or simply selfishness and complacency. Whatever it is, and however slowly it may go away, the ultimate difference between their old and new selves will be clear, undeniable and not subject to any natural explanation. Such people, though still human and imperfect, will simply not fit the “hypocrite” stereotype.

In contrast, there are people who say they walked away from “religion” and became atheists. Inevitably, what they left was indeed just “religion” – shallow and empty, with no real connection to God. It’s the same thing, actually, that many people leave behind when they truly encounter their Creator.

A person who has gone from “religion” to atheism has merely exchanged one set of personal beliefs for another. The only advantage of the latter is that it suits their personal preferences, leaving them convinced that they can have their own way with no real consequences. And that’s not a real advantage at all.

Atheism, perhaps more than anything else in the world, makes promises that it utterly fails to deliver on. Its proponents speak of fulfillment and peace, knowledge and rationality, and much more; but none of these are to be found beneath its surface.

The rejection of God always leads to damage; and the farther it is taken toward its logical conclusions, the more damage it does. A government without God inevitably becomes oppressive. An individual without God will be enslaved by whatever they bow down to instead – addiction, corrupt sexuality, or merely self-interest that negates any concern for a greater good – while believing themselves to be free.

Actions speak louder than words; and the actions that come from godlessness speak much louder than all the nice-sounding words that are used to promote it. These actions often say something like this: “Go ahead and do whatever you want, as long as it doesn’t get in our way. Don’t worry about consequences. And if we can get something we want out of you, so much the better. What happens to you in the end is not our concern.”

Many a person ends up finally seeing that the godless world – in spite of its promises and its superficial appeal – is actually dark, cold and uncaring; and that it is the real home of hypocrisy, judgment, self-righteousness and the desire to control others. And many, having been chewed up and spit out by this world, find that the hated Christians are the only ones there to pick them up afterwards.

Christians are often called “arrogant” for claiming to have knowledge of God. But real knowledge of God is always humbling. And the real arrogance is in pretending, in the face of all creation, that there is nothing higher than oneself.

Christians are often called “irrational” for believing in a Creator. But such belief isn’t some bizarre or mystical thing. God is real, the history given in the Bible is factual, and acknowledging the Creator is, ultimately, as civilized and rational as anything can be. Anyone can see for themselves if they are willing to.

God is not interested in shallow religion, just like many people aren’t. But he is always drawn to a heart that honestly and humbly seeks him, and is willing to be changed by him.

Do You Know God’s Voice?

John 10:1-5

Our perceptions of the Lord have a huge impact on how we hear His voice speak to us in His Word and through His Spirit. There are many voices calling for our attention—we need to be able to distinguish Christ’s words from all the others because He alone always speaks truth. If we listen to other voices, we’ll be led astray, and this includes our own internal voice when it perceives God inaccurately.

This is why it’s so important to make sure our image of God fits the one given in Scripture. The Bible teaches us that …

He is righteous. The Lord would never lead us to do anything sinful because doing so would contradict His nature and His Word.

He is gracious. We don’t have to worry that God is waiting to condemn or punish us. Having been saved by Christ, we live continually in His grace and kindness.

He is faithful. He always does what He says and will never abandon those who belong to Him.

He is our heavenly Father. He loves and cares for us, both by providing for our needs and by disciplining us so that we grow in godliness.

He is our Judge. All who are in Christ, however, have passed out of judgment into eternal life and need never fear condemnation (Rom. 8:1).

If our conception of the Lord is inaccurate, we may think He’s harsh, stingy, or angry with us. But there is an even greater danger if we think that God wants to satisfy all our selfish and worldly desires—that is the voice of a stranger; we should reject it and flee to our Good Shepherd.

Disobedient Angels Not Excluded From Judgment

“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” (Jude 1:6)

This passage is one of two New Testament references to angelic beings who misused their powers in some unique way. 2 Peter 2:4 notes: “God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.”

It is likely that these two passages refer to the same event. If so, several key elements have been written for our awareness. First, of course, even angels are not excluded from judgment. They, along with Lucifer and Gabriel and Michael (the three archangels named in Scripture), were created beings who are “greater in power and might” than men (2 Peter 2:11).

The reference in Genesis 6:1-4 to the “sons of God” choosing multiple wives and producing “giants” has been a source of controversy for some time. There is no question that the Hebrew phrase bene Elohim translated as “sons of God” refers to angelic beings. If Jude and Peter are referring to the incident in Genesis, then the problem arises about the ability of angelic beings to conceive human half-breed demigods.

Biblical evidence would insist that the angelic “kind” cannot interbreed with any other “kind” created by God during the creation week. Angels can assume human shape and can control and/or possess bodies of flesh. That much is clear in Scripture. Therefore, the unique sin that Jude and Peter seem to speak of is that some angels usurped their responsibility as “servants” for humanity and directed a human “breeding” program to further rebellion against the Creator.

That would surely qualify as a special sin deserving of God’s imprisonment and a sober warning for any of us who might dare think we can escape God’s judgment. HMM III

Be Not Just A Huckster

He must increase, but I must decrease.

—John 3:30

Some young preacher will study until he has to get thick glasses to take care of his failing eyesight because he has an idea he wants to become a famous preacher. He wants to use Jesus Christ to make him a famous preacher. He’s just a huckster buying and selling and getting gain. They will ordain him and he will be known as Reverend and if he writes a book, they will make him a doctor. And he will be known as Doctor; but he’s still a huckster buying and selling and getting gain. And when the Lord comes back, He will drive him out of the temple along with the other cattle.

We can use the Lord for anything—or try to use Him. But what I’m preaching and what Paul taught and what was brought down through the years and what gave breath to the modern missionary movement that you and I know about and belong to was just the opposite: “O, God, we don’t want anything You have, we want You.” That’s the cry of a soul on its way up.   SAT029

Lord, give us that hunger to know You; deliver us from the pride that makes us want to use You. Let me pray today with John, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Amen.

 

Because He laid down His life for us

Hereby know we love, because He laid down His life for us.—1 John 3:16 (R, V.).

 

Love, which outlives

All sin and wrong, Compassion which forgives

To the uttermost, and Justice whose clear eyes

Through lapse and failure look to the intent,

And judge our frailty by the life we meant.

John G. Whittier.

 

In return for the love which brought the Son of Man down from heaven, in return for the love which led Him to die for us on the cross, we cannot give Him holy lives, for we are not holy; we cannot give Him pure souls, for our souls are not pure; but this one thing we can give, and this is what He asks, hearts that shall never cease from this day forward, till we reach the grave, to strive to be more like Him; to come nearer to Him; to root out from within us the sin that keeps us from Him. To such a battle I call you in His name. And even if at the last day you shall not be able to show any other service, yet be sure that when thousands of His saints go forth to meet Him, and to show His triumph, He will turn to embrace with arms of tenderness the poor penitent who has nothing to offer but a life spent in one never-ceasing struggle with himself, an unwearied battle with the faults that had taken possession of his soul.

Frederick Temple.

 

Need To Lead the Way

“The Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail.” Deut. 28:13

If we obey the Lord, He will compel our adversaries to see that His blessing rests upon us. Though this be a promise of the law, yet it stands good to the people of God; for Jesus has removed the curse, but He has established the blessing.

It is for saints to lead the way among men by holy influence: they are not to be the tail, to be dragged hither and thither by others. We must not yield to the spirit of the age, but compel the age to do homage to Christ. If the Lord be with us, we shall not crave toleration for religion, but we shall seek to seat it on the throne of society. Has not the Lord Jesus made His people priests? Surely they are to teach, and must not be learners from the philosophies of unbelievers. Are we not in Christ made kings to reign upon the earth? How, then, can we be the servants of custom, the slaves of human opinion?

Have you, dear friend, taken up your true position for Jesus? Too many are silent because diffident, if not cowardly. Should we allow the name of the Lord Jesus to be kept in the background? Should our religion drag along as a tail? Should it not rather lead the way and be the ruling force with ourselves and others?
