WOW, FOLKS! YOU GOTTA READ THIS!
Pardon my French but “The shit is already hitting the fan!”
I’m just repeating how a Bible teacher expressed his feelings on this topic!
“The end times were always about forcing those who honor God and Jesus with their lips to make a real choice.”
END TIMES PERSECUTION OF THE SAINTS: The Fear and the Pit and the Snare – The London Dungeon. Guillotine. [Source: Johnny’s Picture Diary: England > London Dungeon 02/02-2002]
THE COMING END TIMES PERSECUTION OF THE SAINTS
What does the Bible Say?
THE WHORE OF BABYLON THE GREAT
The Corporate Media has been awash with talk of persecution and martyrdom of Christians.
In the Middle East.
All over the world.
Why is that?
Has the Corporate Media suddenly developed this great love for Christians–a group it absolutely despises? Is it trying to warn believers? Do they really believe that “Brotherhood of Man” stuff they’re constantly pushing on the great unwashed?
It’s all about fear.

This is a very important read!
Make sure you’re on the RIGHT SIDE!
“We ought to obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29b
“choose you this day whom ye will serve. . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:13-15
The church in drag is here. Not content in some quarters with God’s design, she seeks a gender change to become an artificial creation of man’s vain imagination. But it’s not a good look.
The progressive Christian bandwagon has a rainbow flag, men in pink feather boas, and Democratic Party politicians. And as certain apostate churches jump on, I think Jesus might be jumping off.
I thought I would reblog this as an exhortation to pursue holiness (Heb 12:14); ‘work out their (our) own salvation with fear and trembling’ (Phil 2:12); deal with and repent of sin in our lives (Eze 3:18-21); refrain from compromise and hypocrisy in our faith walk; and pursue truth by diligently studying God’s Word for ourselves, that we be found worthy of Him (1 Thess 2:12).
” But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.” Titus 3:9
https://heulu.wordpress.com/2012/11/06/repent-return-and-remain-with-god-shofar-ebook-chapter-7/ A church’s ministry should serve 3 groups: unbelievers, believers that backslide, and believers.

WHAT DOES OSAS MEAN? I recently discovered what OSAS meant when I came across this acronym from reading different posts. There are many Christians who subscribe to this teaching of ‘Once Saved Always Saved’, which is what OSAS means. According to the scripture above we did nothing by ourselves to deserve God’s grace and gift of salvation. I certainly believe this to be true, that Jesus paid the price for our sins, calling us “out from darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Pe 2:9). . .
BUT we are also called to Righteousness and Holiness:

Rev. Gary Hall, top religious leader from Washington’s National Cathedral ‘spiritual resource for our nation’ celebrates same-sex marriages and says that opposing homosexuality is harmful to children, etc. Isaiah 5:20 says “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil. . .”
“We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are. They are sin. Homophobia is a sin. Heterosexism is a sin. Shaming people for who they love is a sin. Only when all our churches say that clearly and boldly and courageously will our LGBT youth be free to grow up in a culture that totally embraces them as they fully are.” These aren’t the words of an outspoken gay activist at a rally. Or, well, maybe they sort of are. These words came from the lips of Rev. Gary Hall, the dean of Washington’s National Cathedral, in a recent Sunday sermon. Hall was speaking during a weekend that honored lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth and commemorated the 15th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death. Shepard was tragically murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in 1998. But Hall’s sermon wasn’t an isolated instance or…

Gordon King says, “My concern is not that these people will be attending the churches, but that they will attempt to change the meaning of the bible. To twist the bible for their own vain pleasures. To keep the pastors from preaching the whole truth of God’s words. This is my main concern. The falling away of the church. A Spiritual decline in the church and the body of believers. I see it happening already around the country. The declining church. Apostasy in the church. The forming of a new religion: “Chris-Lam”.
Commentary By: Gordon King
Church is a place of worship. A place for fellow believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, to come to him in praise, thanks giving and adoration. To worship our God together in faith, courage and strength. To encourage one another in the faith. To guide and teach one another the truth.
What if our churches are filled with practicing homosexuals, lesbians and transsexuals? Will this have an impact on the structure of the church? Will this sway church policy and teaching practices. Will the church then accept homosexuality as “normal”. I have had this thought going through my mind for a while now. I have not heard anyone speak out on this subject, which I think is a vitally important subject, living in the times that we are.

‘NO MORE SPINELESS CHRISTIANITY’
by J. Lee Brady of Charisma Magazine.
“This temptation to dilute the gospel has produced a new recipe for a trendy sermon. We start with some great motivational speaking (“Your past does not define your future!”), add a few quarts of cheap grace (“Don’t focus on your sin!”), pour in some prosperity gospel (“Run to this altar and grab your financial breakthrough!”), flavor it with some trendy pop psychology (“It’s all about you!”) and voila!—you end up with a goopy mess of pabulum that not even a baby Christian could survive on.”
“We’ve rewritten Paul’s words today. Our rule is, “Preach what the people want to hear! Avoid controversy! Stroke, soothe and pacify the people so they will come back next week!” Is it any wonder that this low-protein spiritual diet has produced an anemic church?”
Read about the 3 verbs that are needful in Biblical preaching- Reprove, Rebuke, and Exhort. . .
What kind of Christian are you? Am I? Are we Hot, Cold, or Lukewarm? Are we being the light of the world and salt of the earth? Are we teaching and preaching a true or false gospel? Are we ‘going with the flow’ with the world, or are we ‘separated unto God’ and living to serve and please Him only?
Greg Laurie notes, ‘you can’t have your own Bible. You can’t edit God’
Today there are a lot of people living a watered-down version of Christianity. What concerns me is that many of these people who are running around and saying they are Christians do not have lifestyles that back it up.
Here is what Jesus says: “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!” (Revelation 3:15–16 NLT) A more literal translation of the word “spit” would be vomit.
I remember a time when my wife and I and our son went to a fast food restaurant and ordered some fries. When we got them, they were wilted and lukewarm.
