Are you involved in the end time apostasy? Does your church compromise with the world, compromise the Word of God and left off teaching the whole counsel of God? If so, you are treading on dangerous ground and your salvation is in great jeopardy!

22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! Matthew 6:22-23 (NASB)
Since God placed me in this ministry back in 2006 I have been immersed in a battle against a most disturbing phenomenon in the Church in America. In this post we will take a closer look at it. What is it? It is the willful ignorance in our spiritual leaders.

There are the true believers and make believers, wheat and tares, sheep and goats in the ‘body of Christ’. Galatians 1:8 -9 states, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” How important is Paul’s warning that he repeats himself! Do not compromise the gospel!

25 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 21:25 (NASB)
We live in an evil time. There are large numbers of “Christian” leaders who claim to be ministers of God, but prove by their words and actions to have thrown off the authority of God. They do what is right in their own eyes while claiming that they are only following the leading of the Holy Spirit. The fact that what they say or do is unbiblical seems to trouble very few. When some point out the truth to them, they claim that God has lead them to do what they do so it must be okay and those who protest are just legalistic.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1Peter 5:8)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: (John 10:10a)
After talking with some Christians about afflictions they’re going through or have recently experienced, I realized that the source of our testings and trials could be reduced to the works of Satan. My sister’s husband who was well and happy one day was hospitalized the next day for pneumonia. Two friends have teenagers whose personalities underwent extreme changes and are receiving psychiatric treatment. Another friend became bedridden for 4 months, unable to use her hands or feet; she was otherwise healthy her whole life. The works of Satan can be recognized by any or all of the following:
THE ENEMY’S S’s
- SUBTIL/SUBTLE; SNEAKY
Please learn about Satan’s evil works and spiritual warfare so you can stand against him!

Read about what happened to Job. In Job chapter 1 you will find ALL of the ENEMY’S S’s! He is crafty, the Master Deceiver of all mankind from the beginning of time until NOW!
Put on the whole armor of God (Eph 6:10-18); resist the enemy and he will flee from you (James 4:7; 1Peter 5:9)!
God bless you and protect you from the fiery darts of the enemy!
Over the past few days I thought whether or not I should post my reaction to mass killings, then decided that I would, since I already had written this on my ‘Sounding the Shofar’ Facebook. In the meantime I had taught a women’s group about the battle between good and evil, and between God and Satan for the souls of men and women, boys and girls. I presented many scriptures on the strategy and devices of Satan, his MO, modus operandi and how to recognize his evil work and resist him. Then my good Christian blogger friend Gordon King published his post, ‘The Spiritual World Is Alive’ which I have posted on my blog. I was convinced in my own mind that I should share the following with all of my viewers:
HOT TOPIC! (from my Facebook ‘Sounding the Shofar’, 10-3-15)
‘The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence’. (Gen 6:ll)
‘Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves’. (Mt 10:16)
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (Jas 4:7)
The recent mass killings in an Oregon community college and Christian persecution was the topic of discussion at our Bible study recently. What would you do if you were asked by a gunman, “Are you a Christian?!” There is no time to pray and ask God, “What shall I do?”, or no time to think, “Is this what it means to take a stand for Christ?”
This is what I plan to do: I will warn my family members and everyone I know that ‘no lowlife, deranged person is worth obliging’! It is shear stupidity to lay your life on the line for someone bent on shedding the blood of innocent people just to make his mark in the annals of history and the news media in his home town, state, nation and the world.
It makes no difference to a mass killer whether you are a professed Christian or not; he doesn’t really care about Christians, but has singled them out to vent his pent up frustrations and failures as a human person, i.e., you, personally, mean nothing to him! He is only looking to blow away innocent people with a big noise and see their blood splattered. A mass murderer is a person full of the devil and being used by Satan whose modus operandi/MO is ‘to steal, kill, and destroy’. He really doesn’t care who he’s going to kill, but he is driven to violence and murder and that, he will do, whether you are Christian or not. Don’t throw away your life of serving God on someone who has lost all senses of reason and is irrational!
BUT, the case is way different in the face of obeying or disobeying CIVIL AUTHORITIES, those individuals who have the rule over you/us. Enforcing laws against what they perceive are crimes of non-compliance for example, may result in some Christians taking a personal stand on their religious convictions regarding their freedom and individual rights. But, if and when they do, they may have to suffer the consequences of non-compliance, which may be fines and/or jail time. This is where we are today as the face of society is changing with the passing of new laws that are being challenged by professing Christians, especially in the public marketplace/business arena, educational institutions, and with some religious groups in America.
CHECK OUT THE SCRIPTURES- No one was persecuted or martyred for their faith by responding to a crazed madman or idiot.
So, “Are you a Christian?” It depends… “WHO is asking?”

SATAN IS REAL, YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!
We are in a BATTLE of NOT FLESH AND BLOOD, but a SPIRITUAL BATTLE of the forces of GOOD AND EVIL, between GOD and SATAN for the souls of men.
Being Southern Baptists, rest assured that there was plenty of food and fellowship.
After the meal, we began to talk about what it going on around us, in this nation, once referred to as “The Shining City Upon the Hill”.
The topics of Racial Division and the murders of 9 American Law Enforcement Offices in 9 days, the rapidly deteriorating American Work Force, The potentially-catastrophic Iran Deal, the arrest of American Christian, Kim Davis, while others in power, such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, laugh in the face of our laws, and the vulgarity, and oblivious self-centered nature of Americans Pop Culture.
The conclusion that that the 11 of us came to, was the fact that America is…

Gordon King says, “Never before has there been such a time when we need to discern “good” from “evil”. Never a time when deception in the world was so high. Ignorance is no excuse for not knowing the truth. God has written on man’s heart what is right and what is wrong.”
