The Vanity of a Wasted Life

 

 

Since we are only given so much time in this life of ours, let us make better choices in how we play it out day by day.

The Word of God and the Holy Spirit of the Lord will guide us in our daily walk.

Eph 5:6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7Therefore do not become partners with them; 8for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, 14for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,

“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”

15Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

 

The Danger of “Doing Your Own Thing”

          AND THEY WORSHIPED THE DRAGON

Revelation 12:9, 13:8 … Satan… deceiveth the whole world… And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb A. According to Scriptures Satan deceives the whole world. He deceives them into worshipping him. It is sad, but yet it is true, Satan has deceived the great multitude into worshipping him unaware.
B. Is it possible to worship the Devil when you do not intend to? Yes, according to Scriptures the heathen who worshipped images and made sacrifices to them unknowingly worshipped demons. -1st Corinthians 10:20
C. Who are the only ones that do not worship the dragon?  According to Scriptures only those whose name is in the Lamb’s book of life don’t worship the dragon. 

THE WORLD IS IMMERSED INTO THE SPIRIT OF SATAN

1 John 5:19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
The inhabitants of the world, those who have not been born of God, lieth in the wicked one. They are immersed in Satan and are under his power and his influence; and they fulfill his will.

 

SATAN’S SPIRIT IS AT WORK IN THE CHILDREN OF THIS WORLD.

Ephesians 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
A. All men, even Christians before they are saved, walk in accordance to the ‘prince of the power of the air’ who is the spirit that works in the children of disobedience.
B. The spirit of the evil one leads men to be disobedient to the word of God. It does not matter what men profess, or even if they attend Church, if they are disobedient and rebellious toward the Word of God, the ‘prince of the power of the air’ is at work in their life.

 

THE PRINCIPLES OF DRAGON WORSHIP
The Bible teaches the whole world worships the ‘Dragon’. There are three basic tenents to Dragon worship; and they might surprise you: 1. Do what you will. You decide what is wrong and right. 2. If it makes you happy then do it; since Pleasure is the goal. 3. Listen to your heart, let your heart be your guide, since your heart is the true dictator of truth….
Satan is the god of this world, and he is adored and followed by the multitudes. Only a hand full of people openly worship him as the devil. The vast majority follow him in his different forms. You may say, “I don’t worship the devil”, but if these three tenets are a part of your life, then you are a worshipper of the dragon, if you realize it or not. The devilish book, “Satanism 101″ agrees:


“The worship of Satan is not a vital part of Satanism. You do not have to worship Satan to be a Satanist….  As long as you follow the Satanic way of life you can call yourself a Satanist” – Chapter 1, of Satanism 101.


“DO WHAT THOU WILT”

“DO WHAT THOU WILT SHALT BE THE WHOLE OF THE LAW” – From Aliester Crowley, The Book of the Law.
In the worship of the dragon ‘self-will’ is set up against the Divine will. The Divine Law is ignored and men do that which is right in their own eyes [Judges 17:6]. Satan deceives men into thinking that they have the power to decide what is good and what is evil. Men become their own ‘Lord’ and ‘god’.
In the true worship of GOD, we do not do what we will; but rather we seek the will of God. We pray, “Thy kingdom come and thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. The Christian’s greatest desire is to do the will of the Father. And he SUBMITS his will to that of his Lord’s. Jesus said those who enter heaven will be those who “Do the will of my Father” [Matthew 7:21].

 

DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

Satan tempted Eve by offering her something to satisfy the flesh, and with the same objective he tempted Christ [Matthew 4:3-4]. Eve became a servant to sin because she chose pleasure over the Divine will. Jesus Christ exhibited his fidelity to God by remaining faithful to the divine will, at the expense of instant gratification.
 

“ The idea behind Satanism is to better yourself and do what makes you happy. As long as you follow the Satanic way of life you can call yourself a Satanist.” Chapter 1, of Satanism 101. In true worship the ultimate goal isn’t our personal pleasure, but to be pleasing to God in all things. Holiness and conformity to the image of Christ is our goal. If our personal ‘happiness’ conflicts with our “holiness’, we will choose holiness. Where as the dragon worshippers almost always choose ‘pleasure’ first.

Moses is a good example of rejecting the pleasures of sin, so he could be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ [Hebrews 11:24-26].

 

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART?

“Listen to your heart because it will give you the best advice.” – Satanic Pride, 21 Satanic Statements
There seems to be an endless number of songs and poetry and teachings in the world today that can be summed up with “Listen to your heart”. The world has taken this lie of Satan hook, line and sinker, because it makes the heart the dictator of truth.

True Worshippers know that the heart is not a trusty guide, the Bible teaches that it is deceitful above all things and wicked [Jeremiah 17:9] and a fool trusts in his own heart [Proverbs 28:26]. True worshippers do not look to themselves for truth, but to Jesus Christ who is the truth, and to his WORD, the BIBLE which is the truth in written form. All things are to be judged by the word of God, and it determines what is right and what is wrong. Even the ‘feelings’ of the heart must be made subject to the TRUTH of God’s word.


DON’T JUDGE ME!

This brings us to one of the favorite sayings of a dragon worshipper: “DON’T JUDGE ME”. They are very offended at any one who has the ability to discern between good and evil, and who calls ‘sin’ by its rightful name.
The Christian is commanded to “Judge Righteously”, and they have the ability to discern. Jesus told us that we would know the tree by its fruit. An evil tree will bring forth bad fruit. The Dragon Worshipper doesn’t want anyone calling his evil deeds ‘sin’. He doesn’t want to be told that what he is doing is ‘wrong’.  But the Christian believes the Bible and agrees with it when it calls evil SIN. A True Worshipper of God will receive godly correction and has a deep desire to be pure from all things that defiles.

 

IF WE “LOVE” THEN WE CAN’T BE SATANISTS? Many Dragon worshippers use this verse in attempt to prove that they are actually worshippers of God.

 

1 John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. They will tell you, “I love” therefore “I am of God”. But what “LOVE” are they speaking of? Satanists believe in ‘love’ also!

In one statement of faith shared on a Satanists website we read:

 

“Our destiny is to serve with compassion, love and spiritual faith of our beliefs, remembering to always bring comfort, aid and encouragement to all that come to us for help. We are to heal, give shelter, feed the hungry… We believe that as ministers we are to love one another as we serve all in faith and spiritual fulfillment… We serve man through Satan as Satan’s servants, and soldiers” – From the Satanic Statement of Faith. So we see that just because someone says they ‘love’ and do ‘good deeds’ it doesn’t mean they are of God.

Do you  remember Aliester Crowley’s statement: “Do what thou wilt shall be the sum of the law”? Here is the next sentence:

“Love is the law; love under will” You see the Satanists believe in ‘love’, but the love is submissive to the self-will. Where as the true love of GOD is manifested in its submission and obedience to the Divine Will. Christians exalt love above their own will.

 

God’s love is explained in these verses: 1st John 5:2-3  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

The True love of God is seen in the submission of the self-will to the Divine Will, and this is exhibited in the obedience of the commands of GOD.

John 14:15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:21-23  He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him… Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Anyone who says they love God but are not willing to submit to the Commandments of GOD is a liar. And in truth are followers of the dragon, who is the Father of lies.

John 14:24  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

1 John 2:4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

 

THE TRUE WORK OF EVERY MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL.

Acts 26:18  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Every person that is saved has had their eyes opened, and they have been delivered from the power Satan and translated into the Kingdom of God. This is without exception.
 

CONCLUSION

When we examine Satanism and see at its root is the exaltation of self-will above the divine will; and the trading of Divine Truth [The Word of God], for personal ‘truth’, it is easy to see that the whole world worships the dragon.
Has this study convicted your heart? Are there elements of dragon worship in your life? God is able to save you from it. If you put your trust in Jesus Christ, receiving him as both LORD and Savior over your life, the blood of Jesus shall cleanse you from all sin, and the power of the Spirit of GOD will come into your heart enabling you to love and to follow the Lord.

The Catholic Church Hasn’t Changed…

 

To Catholics…I am not against you. Not at all. If you were born into a Catholic family, it’s quite understandable that you were raised as a Catholic with all it’s rituals and dogma; it probably seemed perfectly natural as well as “holy”. But my question to you, is, have you ever studied in depth the history of the Catholic church? That is from a non-Catholic source? And, another question….have you ever studied in depth with all seriousness, the Holy Bible? I know…it very well have been that you’ve not been told to do that by your priests, but nevertheless, if you are indeed seeking the truth about Life and the Lord Jesus Christ, would you not want to put the Bible to the test to see why you shouldn’t need to read and study it…? After all, the Lord Jesus Christ has given you a mind and brain to study, to seek Him, and to decide with your conscience, right from wrong, truth from error……apart from religion, teachings, doctrines and traditions of men; but rather, with your spirit.

In the Bible, that was inspired by God, and not men…the Lord Jesus said this to the woman at the well: “God is a Spirit, and He is seeking those who will seek Him in Spirit and in Truth”. That would be a wise and reasonable request of God don’t you think? Since after all, you’re personal conclusions you reach about God and His Son Jesus Christ will affect your outcome for all eternity.

I’m sure you noticed the title of the video I posted, and yes, it would be very true that I am biased against the Catholic church…after having studied in detail it’s history. I came to the conclusion it is a very beautiful but deceptive counterfeit, just as an evil but adulterous and lovely woman would be. Beautiful on the outside, but wicked, devious and hurtful on the inside where it’s hidden. Looking at and studying the history of the Catholic church, and comparing it with the scriptures in the Bible, especially of the New Testament and the gospels of the Lord Jesus Christ…how do they compare? Frankly, they don’t. They can’t, because they aren’t true and holy. So, if the Catholic church has not lined up with the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Holy Word, and it has done so much evil in the past, do you seriously believe this ancient leopard has changed it’s spots? I dare say…no. It hasn’t changed.

Neither has the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible:
      6I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! 9As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

10For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.

11For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:6-11.

The Mystery of the Gospel

1For this reason, I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles…

2Surely you have heard about the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets. 6This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus.

7I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace, given me through the working of His power. 8Though I am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to illuminate for everyone the stewardship of this mystery, which for ages past was hidden in God, who created all things. 10His purpose was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11according to the eternal purpose that He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

12In Him and through faith in Him we may enter God’s presence with boldness and confidence. 13So I ask you not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory. Ephesians 3

 

Pope Francis is Not the “Holy Father”

Alex Jones asks in this excellent video if the Jesuit Pope Francis is the devil? No, but the Pope is an agent of the devil. This sort of statement doesn’t sit well with Catholics who believe the Pope is infallible and can do no wrong. They call him “Holy Father”, but the Lord Jesus Christ said this:

“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. “Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23:9-12

Yes, I know that Catholics have an answer, (excuse) to call the Pope the Holy Father, but most have not been encouraged or taught to read the bible, or they would read what the Lord Jesus Christ said in the next sentences about not exalting yourself, about humbling yourself and not becoming leaders. The Catholic clerical hierarchy is all about exalting itself, and lording over the common people: the “laity”.  This is Antichrist….plain and simple.

No Church Can Save you~

No “church” can save you. Any so-called Christian church, whether it be “Protestant” or “Roman Catholic” that teaches that you can’t be saved outside of their “church”, beliefs, doctrines, traditions, or sacraments, is lying against Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior and His Holy Scriptures. Make no mistake, the Holy Scriptures trump all man made doctrines, and traditions of men, and all forms and appearance of godliness.

In Christ Alone, by Faith Alone…

1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.Ephesians 2

Be Warmed and Filled, with 4 Boxes Mac and Cheese, etc

christian_cliches-237x300

I have recently made contact with a dear old friend of many years that I’d lost track of since I moved to a different state. She and her adult son had just moved into a Mobile Home and park, pooling their limited money to make the first payment and utility deposit. This was the first real home they’ve had in many years due to a series of serious illness, misadventures, trials, and tribulations.

I found out that they had absolutely no food in the kitchen, nothing in the pantry. or fridge. Since they had been living with a relative there was no condiments; things like flour, sugar, tea, spices, etc. I knew poverty had been  like a black cloud hovering over both their lives for years. There had been many times when they’d both moved in with me, like the time Karen first left her husband due to his adultery and physical abuse. This time, their need and their hunger was immediate and urgent.

I have come to accept Karen’s personality and what the “church” would call her short comings, (spiritual failures) but have come to realize she has more humility, forgiveness and love for the Lord Jesus…….. and everyone else, than the legalistic, self righteous, judgmental leadership of the old church we both started in and later came out of.

However, I emailed an SOS to a sister in that church and asked if they could help Karen and her son have some food. I heard later that the main female pillar in the church came by with some items in the churches “food pantry”. She kind of lamely apologized and said the church has declined, (that was true) and “didn’t have much”. She gave Karen and her diabetic son 4 boxes of mac cheese, 1 can of Carnation milk, box of oatmeal, 1 small sack of dried beans, and a few cans of vegetables. But nothing they could put together a meal with. No bread, fresh milk, bread, butter, vegetables, or meat, etc. However, their “tithes” still go to keep that old falling apart bird cage going with only 9 adults and 3 kids attending.

I received an email the next day from the church sister, saying “they were glad they could help Karen with the food, And that Jesus would provide for them”. And yes of course he does. But not through that bunch of churchy folks. I was even more disappointed in that place than I had been when I left. In any case, the next day an itinerant preacher came by and furnished a Mexican restaurant meal for Joshua and some take out for Karen. Joshua got a decent paying job a few blocks away. And Karen may get a few hours a day at the same place that will allow for her disabilities.

 

The Lord Jesus gave me this scripture explaining what had happened:

 

What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself”.James 2 14-16

More on this particular church later. It was my education in the Lord how Nicolaitanism works against Christians.

~All Power Tends to Corrupt and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely~

-Lord Acton

“But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and lto give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20-27
