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.

Ye Olde Tithe Barn

During the period when Catholicism reigned supreme in northern Europe, “tithe barns” were developed in the 13th and 14th century.  The purpose of the tithe barn was to extract goods, (tithes), from the local farmers, mostly peasants, who were already hard pressed to pay exorbitant taxes to the landed gentry, lords and/or the king or queen.  Never mind the fact the Levitical priesthood had been abolished along with the Old Testament Law after the advent of the New Covenant of Grace established by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the High Priest forever after the Order of Melchizedek. 

“A tithe barn was a type of barn used in much of northern Europe in the Middle Ages for storing rents and tithes — one tenth of a farm’s produce which was given to the Church. Tithe barns were usually associated with the village church or rectory and independent farmers took their tithes there. The village priests would not have to pay tithes—the purpose of the tithe being their support—and some had their own farms anyway, which are now village greens in some villages.

Many were monastic barns, originally used by the monastery itself or by a monastic grange. The word ‘grange’ is (indirectly) derived from Latin granarium (‘granery’). Identical barns were to be found on royal domains and country estates.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tithe_barn

 

Examples of a modern day Tithe barns:

These are the largest tithe barns in America. Not all tithe barns are this large; some are very small, but the principle and purpose is still the same as the tithe barns of olden times……..That is, to practice the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitanes and make money at it. Never mind the fact that Lord Jesus hates the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitanes and never intended for the so called “clergy” to rule over the “laity” as you see done all over the United States in large or small tithe barns.

It’s Time for the Church to go Out of Business

You’ve heard church folk say, “You can’t put God in a box”

That’s very true, so it makes me wonder why they keep trying to put him in a box? Their box shaped church?

Don’t they know that God doesn’t dwell in a house made with hands?

“However, the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says:

HEAVEN IS MY THRONE,
            AND EARTH IS THE FOOTSTOOL OF MY FEET;
            WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YOU BUILD FOR ME?’ says the Lord,
            ‘OR WHAT PLACE IS THERE FOR MY REPOSE?

Acts 7: 48-49

 

 

God is Not the God of Denominations!

worship canceled

“For there are times and seasons in this earth that are of Me. Now is the time to see that your heart is dedicated completely, totally, to the ways of the Lord. Now is the time to see that you are completely focused on the ways of God and not the ways of the world.

This is the time I am bringing a correction to My church. This is the time I am bringing a correction to My church. This is the time I am bringing a correction to My church. And those who are caught up in denominations I will change. They will either have to turn from Me and serve the denomination, or turn from the denomination and serve Me.

For I do not serve a split-up church. I serve a church in one faith. Did I not say so in the Word: one faith. And I serve a people of one faith who are not arguing with denominational differences which make no matter to Me.

I seek not whether your doctrine is technically accurate or not. My main concern, says the Lord, is that you have your heart turned on to Me, and to My ways, and to My Word.

When I see that, I can take anything and change it. Look at Saul. Look at Saul, before he became the apostle Paul. He persecuted the christians because his heart was dedicated to the things of God, and he thought the christians were wrong. But I took that man and I changed him. I looked at the heart of Saul. The heart of Saul wanted truth. He just did not know what it was. He had it all mixed up. He had it backwards. But I took the apostle Saul, and I made him exactly that, an apostle; renamed him Paul, and had him write a large part of My Word.

Why is it you cannot see this? It is the heart dedicated to the things of God that count—to the things of the Son, and to the things of the Spirit. This is what I need. This is what I want. This is what My hearts desire is.

If you are a little inaccurate in one thing, or one belief, or one other little thing because you don’t understand something, I will correct it. I will show you truth. But I need your heart dedicated to Me. Not sitting down in some corner church arguing why you are right over some other corner church.

For those who fight against Me will loose. For when christians fight against christians they shall loose!

Beware of those who are always trying to win some theological argument. I’m not into that! I’m not into that, says the Lord of Heaven and earth! I’m not into that!

I’m into service—heart dedication. I’ll correct your errors, but you see that your heart is to Me, says the Lord God of all!”

Charles Stanley..Saved as by Fire?

As a dedicated Once Saved Always Saved, “Eternal Security” false teacher, of the Southern Baptist variety of false teachers of false doctrines and lies, I wonder how many “rewards” he will loose as he tries to force his way into the Marriage Supper of the LAMB? Or, will he be told to depart, that workers of iniquity, false teachers of doctrines of demons, will not be welcomed in and embraced?

Long ago, as a new spirit filled believer, I watched on TV as Charles Stanley tried to explain the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. He appeared to be confused, and as if he didn’t really understand what he was attempting to explain. This is not surprising since Baptists believe that “you get all the Holy Spirit you’re ever going to get when you get saved”. And this is exactly what he was saying, as he muddled on. Unfortunately, this is a terrible misconception and misapplication of what the scriptures actually say.

You see, Baptists seem to have their own play book when teaching doctrine. They generally believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are “not for today”, that someway or another, they were left behind when Jesus ascended, and the Apostles were martyred. In order to do this, they have to deny what’s in the plain text of scripture.

Why do they do this? Personally, I feel it’s because they DON’T HAVE the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and so somehow have to explain away or excuse the embarrassing FACT, that they don’t have the gifts of the Spirit operational in their own lives due to having listened to and believed the false “man made doctrines and traditions of men that make the Word of God ineffectual”.

It is indeed a crying shame that man can’t seem to take God at His Word and simply believe and trust in what the scriptures say, and apply them to their own lives without rearranging, negating, removing, folding, spindling or mutilating the Word of God instead of adhering to some dead, denominational “form” of religion.

Warning! Cyber Sodom & Gomorrah-BlogTalk-YouTube-PalTalk-FaceBook

The following prophecy was posted on a Facebook page as a warning from the Lord. Although this concerns BlogTalk Radio specifically, when I read the prophecy, I judged it as from the Lord as being a true Word from our God, who judges the quick and the dead! But, then I began thinking of the other venues on the Internet, where others and even I, have posted messages intended for the Body of Christ, the Church. Venues such as YouTube.

Look and consider brethren, is not BlogTalk Radio, YouTube, PalTalk,and even FaceBook places where Christians have defiled themselves and others by inviting them into unclean places, posting messages, teachings, links and videos…in the name of Jesus, thinking we have done God a service?

Places that the Lord has shown me even very recently, that these very places have become the habitation of devils and every unclean spirit? How can it be otherwise, when side by side, every abomination of God is there, doctrines of demone, witches, sorcerers, pornographers, evil workers, false prophets and teachers, merchandizers trading in the bodies and souls of men?

Shall we then continue to partake of Babylon’s sins…and her plagues? And shall we not obey our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and come out from amongst them? Shall we restrict ourselves to the narrow way in the household of God, by discipline and obedience?

I for one, repent of posting YouTube videos on my blog, no matter how good they may have seemed at the time? Will all Christians repent of rubbing elbows, (our minds), with filthy defiled sinners on PalTalk, BlogTalk Radio, YouTube, and FaceBook, even indirectly exposing ourselves and others to contamination of spirit? Will we not Tremble at His Holy Word and His Warnings to His Church, the Body of Christ, which is to be without spot, wrinkle or blemish?

I have been praying about something for many days, and tonight I have the answer from God, a Few weeks days ago a friend here in town asked me to partner with him in a Blog-talk Radio Ministry, and I have to admit at first I was excited, But told the friend I would Pray about it, and the More I Prayed and Meditated on this the more I knew something was wrong “really wrong”

So I began to seek God, and here is what God said to Me

Come and see. so i looked and I saw Blogtalk Radio , and in Blogtalk i saw all manner of Mankind, However they were spotted even their faces was spotted , Not like a bad rash, But I mean Spots, Big Spots! roughly the size of a silver dollar,Black and dark grey, well this puzzled me, I could not understand what was happening, one poor Guy was trying Hard to wash them off, and he was crying and asking God to help, I then heard my own Voice asking, what is this?( but could not feel myself Speak) Why are those people spotted that way? And not even aware there was anybody around , I heard a voice that said “Look closely”, so I looked again, and as I looked, the reason became clear.

In Blogtalk Radio, I saw all kinds of Filth, half naked women and Men, filthy Language, ungodly music, false ministries Galore, literally a Cyber Sodom and Gomorrah. Homosexual talk and speech, hateful lying back biting, I saw images there of every imaginable abomination,and those who worship strange gods.
I then saw one poor lady Speaking against all the things I have mentioned, and felt sorry for her, and someone asked me( I dont Know who),”Why do you feel sorry for her?” I said because she seems to be the only one trying to speak against such evil, Then the one that had been speaking, spoke again.( again I dont know who, or where the voice came from).

He said to me , “Will you have pity for that which is evil?” I said “No Lord!” He spoke again,( seemed his voice was coming from everywhere and yet nowhere) “This one (the Lady) is even made evil by her choice to be here, is she blind that she cant see? or deaf that she can’t hear? Seeing that she can see all that the Lord God abhors, will you pity her?”

I said,”No Lord”.The voice said to me, “Will you now be joined to this abomination?”
I answered loudly, “NEVER” !! I then saw many who had white robes but the robes were spotted everywhere like the men I had seen. I said,”What are these?” He then spoke again and said to me, “These have chosen the filthy , and call it righteousness. They have allowed their Garments of righteousness to be spotted. They live to call themselves the servants of the Most High, Yet are of the House of Satan, and choose to dwell here in filth.”

“They have traded the right for what is half right, and are spotted.” “They deceive themselves and think they do the Most High a service, not knowing it is a stench in the nostrils of the Most High God. They have become partners with the ungodly,when they should be calling them out of darkness they sit in there and call the righteous to come in to see the abominations and filthy, and by doing this they orofane and blaspheme the Name of the Most high God.”

“Yes they call and call to my people and cause them to come and to look at all the filth and abomination of that place, they speak great words and compel many, but not for the Most High God. Woe,woe,woe, unto them for their Judgements has come, and the Most High God has heard the great swelling words they have spoken, when they say,”Come out! come out! And in fact are leading many to destruction, because of the filth of that place. They sit in abomination and call it Holy. They speak great words and call it sanctified. Woe,woe,woe to those who take part of abomination and filth.”

“Have they not read that they must come without spot? With out Blemish?
Yet they are spotted. Do they not say,”come out! come out! Yet they will not so much as move and will not allow others to leave?”

By this time I am crying and weeping, but can’t look away, or stop listening.

The one spoke again and said to me,”Who will go and warn them? Who will tell them that destruction is neigh? Who will be that faithful servant of the Most High God, and call them to come out and touch not the unclean thing? They are even as Israel, they layed down in idolatry and they worship their own voices, they seek to gather, but not for the most high, but for their own belly, and have fallen.”

“Come out my people says the Lord your God most High, Come out now! Do not look back! Remember the days of Lot, remember! I have called to you! Yes, I have called to you in dreams and visions! Yes, while you sleep I have spoken softly. I have shouted into the corners of your heart, and still, because of your pride you will not hear, you say look what we are doing, are we not doing a great work for the Most High? Are we not above other men? Because we have preached, we have prayed, we have called many.”

Here, says the Lord God Most High, “Your preaching is filthy, your praying is an abomination, your calling as one who calls for her lovers that she may extract their substance, Repent! And come out of the filth! says the Most High God, lest I come to you in my wrath and destroy you from among the living!

The one speaking then said to me, Now you Robert, “Go and write these things , go to them, and tell them all these things.They have slain many by leading them into that pit! Repent and come out of the unclean! Seek God and he will forgive. Repent and The most high will receive you.”

So I write this tonight, in hope.
Pleading with the many I know who are a part of that place, even my best friend of 14 years now, Melanie. Please take this serious, seek God- the true God, Please don’t let pride get in the way. Come out of that place. All you others; please hear this word from the Lord, “Come out! Come out! Repent and the Lord God will Forgive.”

Victory Center Sexual Abuse Scandal

1315df53eb6c54553f9a3de22cc4f60ddfe7ac4b1b3709b2338cce15608ee696

 

I subscribe to a Google feed that sends me news of new church and spiritual abuses. Everyday there are at least two e-mails in my inbox with some distressing and shameful scandal. This time, it involves Victory Christian Center in Tulsa, OK….but only because one of the victims blew the whistle.

Not all church scandals involve a cult steeped in aberrant doctrines. Many of them involve churches similar to the one down the street from you and me. The ones that make the news are usually the ones that make it to court because someone filed a complaint. All too often, churches choose to keep their dirty linen inside the church walls. This in itself is a scandal, but one known only to God and to those who are scandalized, and hurt,  by the complacency of it’s members.

This is more than just my opinion as I’ve followed these church failures, and yes, they are failures and more than that, they’re putting the name of Christ to an open shame…but it seems to me that most of these scandals involve either a money crime or a sexual crime. And for every crime involving churches, there has to be a victim. Sometimes it may be money donated by the congregation and then misused or stolen by the clergy, usually the pastor. The congregation is made up not only of the middle class and/or those who can afford a loss without it hurting them, but also of those who can scarcely afford to put food on their table.
Then, on the other hand, a sexual crime usually, but not always involves a young child, such as the 9yr old girl raped and victimized by her pastor.

How often when a church scandal happens and a rogue pastor is exposed do you hear that we are just supposed to pray for him and then forgive him? I agree that we need to do that as well, but we clearly do NOT need to place him back in a place of leadership. The very fact that an ungodly crime happened in the first place is an indication that there is something very wrong going on in whatever church is involved. For example, why wasn’t the said wolf in sheep’s clothing and his behavior discerned by someone accountable? Isn’t that what elders are for?

Back when I was still a young in the LORD Christian, I sought God not only in church, but in His Word and in my prayer closet. I began to get “vibes” if you will that there were things going on in the church, (in this case, a spiritfilled church where such things as sex or money crimes should NEVER happen. The Holy Spirit was warning me, but the leadership seemed to be oblivious.

Like I said, it always seems to be about either sex or money….two of the deadliest sins that man is prone to be capable of. And two that God takes most seriously.

My friend told me that 3 years prior, during a men and boys only church outing that her son had been molested by the church youth minister at Fountain of Life Pentecostal Church in Dewey, Oklahoma. He was 13 at the time, but was so confused, traumatized and ashamed that he didn’t tell his mother until he was 16. At that time, she told a friend who was in leadership in the church, who then told the pastor. What happened then was beyond belief. Instead of confronting this perpetrator, the pastor preached what I heard was a fiery sermon the next Sunday, and the perp ran to the altar bawling and squalling. The church took this action as “repentance” and then without any form of counseling, or removing him from his position as youth minister. What were they thinking!??

Sadly, this damaged my friend’s son beyond belief. This happened many years ago, and although this young man is now grown, married and with a family, he still bears scars from this molestation. However, during the interim period he went through many difficult times that went unministered to by the church, even by then they knew about it.  He’d just refused to go back to that church without telling anyone why.

And the church? Well, sexual molestation of a minor child is first of all a CRIME punishable by law. This perp should have been arrested, taken to court and jailed. Also, the church could have been sued to the max by my friend. Neither happened and he went scot free to continue his hidden agenda in the church behind closed doors. Almost…….you see, what happened a few years later, this same perp died (in perfect health), of a heart attack at age 40. The first thing that came to me was….”God will not be mocked”, especially in his own house called by his name. The next thing that came to me was, “vengeance is mine, saith the LORD, I will repay”. Apparently, he wasn’t kidding when he said that. There was simply no other answer, or reason for this person to die.

God’s eye is on the sparrow, and he watches over his little ones. He warned those not to touch one of them, and what would happen if they did. Lest we not forget, we are held responsible if we turn a blind eye toward blatant and obvious sins and misconduct in the household of God.

Note from Scarlett: I was recently informed that the minor child who was molested by the “youth minister” in this case admitted to his mother for the first time, he was sodomized during this cam ping trip.
