Tithing to Mega Churches and Prosperity Preachers| Accountability of God’s Children

James 3:17-18 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all PURE; then peaceloving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and GOOD FRUIT, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

Tithing| Sewing the Wrong Seeds

There are many arguments about tithes and offerings. As a truth seeker, I have noticed that whenever there is much controversy in regards to a certain topic it is always necessary to look at a few things:

  1. Why is there controversy?
  2. What agenda does this controversy serve? In other words what agenda can clearly be seen on each side/s of the argument?
  3. What does the bible say or what example did Jesus give in his gospel?

The question in this blog is, should I tithe? Should I give offerings?

The answer is…yes and no. Let me explain.

Reasons Why it’s WRONG to give Tithes & Offerings

  • #1 When your heart doesn’t want to give tithes and offerings you should keep them in your wallets. God is not joyful about offerings that are given in regret, hesitation, or contempt.

 

Example: Your husband or wife comes home from work. You are beyond excited because today is your birthday and you are looking forward to the gift that you know that your loved one is going to give to you. Your spouse comes through the door, glances over to you and without a word tosses your gift at you. They then grudgingly climb up the stairs to change while grumbling under their breath,” I hate spending my money on nonsense, I can think of a dozen other things my money could of been spent on instead.”

Now let me ask you something. Did that gift make you feel good? Are you still excited about receiving your gift? Did your spouse’s actions bring you joy? My guess is probably not and this is the same lack of joy and indifference that God feels when your tithes and offerings are given in this manner. So much so that you would have been better off not giving it in the first place. We were made in God’s image, so why do we feel like God does not have feelings?

  • #2 When your tithes are not sewing a good seed you are held accountable for contributing to the corruption of the church. You are, in essence, held responsible for every wrong thing that your church uses your tithes and offerings for when you are aware of these facts. When you surpass reason and logic and continue to give when you know and are fully aware that every dime of your money is not going where it is supposed to be going which is, uplifting the children of God, helping the fatherless and the widows, paying a modest and appropriate wage to your church leaders, building up the church, and spreading the gospel of God, you are held accountable. If you were somehow not aware of your churches misuse of funds, which could also be a factor, you are responsible in diligently searching the scripture and asking God to correct you. You are also responsible for being proactive in the activities of your church.

Would you give a family member a significantly costly loan without first asking them how they will use these funds along with a plan to repay you? Would you invest your life’s savings into a business venture or investment stock you know nothing about? The same diligence that you use in worldly financial obligations should be the same diligence, if not more so, that is used in Godly financial obligations.

  • #3 When your tithes are used for extravagances and continuously foolish investments by your pastor and the elders you are also held responsible for the theft of God’s money. Spending millions of dollars on jets, designer clothing, jewelry, and costly relics is a big no no and scripture can be found in regards to this matter throughout the entire bible. With the overabundance of the Bible and the endless articles speaking of the truth all over the internet today, it is your responsibility to seek the truth and compare the teachings of your church with what is written in the bible. Just as ignorance is not a defense in the United States Law it is also not a defense in the laws of God. You are expected to diligently seek the truth and pray for guidance regarding these things. If you have been doing these things unknowingly you should stop right away and seek the true house of the Lord to pay your tithes and offerings. You will know a good church by the fruits of it’s harvest, by the fruits of the spirit. The pastor and the church should be compared to these fruits of the spirit which are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, gentleness, self control, goodness, and faithfulness. It is also important to look at the character of Jesus which was wise, meek, humble, and lowly. This doesn’t mean that the pastor should be dirt poor but he should not be driving luxury vehicles and living in mansions. Compare your religious leader’s lifestyles side by side with a Corporate CEO and a working middle class person. Ask yourself which one does your pastor or church more closely resemble?

 Many pastors have extravagances that can be sold for a price and given to the poor. The Vatican estate and the gold within is worth well over 8 billion dollars. If this estate was sold it could support more than 49,950 single family homes for 2+ years.

 

The sale of a luxury car and a 3 million dollar mansion can support the entire living expenses of 152.5 single family homes for a year.

God’s people should demand liquidation of assets and for God’s money to be returned to the works that they were intended for.

Reasons Why it is RIGHT to Give Tithes & Offerings

  • #1 When you love the Lord and desire to be obedient and you want to give from your heart this is when you should give tithes and offerings. As you grow stronger in your faith and God has began to fill your heart with the Spirit of God you will WANT to give to the church. You will cheerfully offer your time and resources to helping the widows, the fatherless, and the less fortunate. You will want to make offerings to projects that uplift God’s people and that help share the gospel to the world. You will want to volunteer your time to helping others or to talking to people about Jesus and the Bible. Do not worry if you have not come to this feeling of cheerful giving yet. Pray for God to pour his Spirit out on you so that your desires align with God’s desires for you and for others. This could happen immediately or it could take some time. The closer you hold to God the closer he will hold to you. Mind you, while you are not paying your tithes you are actively stealing from God every time you receive wages and do not give 10% to the house of the Lord.

OLD TESTAMENT

Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord.

Malachi 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

NEW TESTAMENT

Luke 18:12 I fast twice in a week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Hebrew 7:5 And verily they that are sons of Levi, likewise who receive the office of the priest hood, have a commandment to take the tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham.

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!  for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, but have OMITTED the weightier matters of the law, judgement, mercy, and faith: these ought to have done, and not leave the other undone.

Everything that we own, every dollar that we make, every work that we have done under the sun is done with a lease of the property which is held by God. A tenth of what you earn is Holy and by obeying this law you can look forward to the 90% of what remains of your income being blessed and more than sufficient. Don’t you trust what God has said on this matter?

Deuteronomy 28:12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations, but will never need to borrow from none.

You can be assured that if you knowingly pay your tithes irresponsibly to a church which teaches false doctrine you will not receive this promise.

  • #2 When the evidence of the good works your church puts forth is evident and crystal clear. As a member of the church it is important to be aware of the outreach and the evangelical mission of your church, the costs that are involved, and to have access to quarterly reports that tell you specifically what the needs of your church are and what percentage of tithes and offerings are going to which project. Another important thing to be aware of is the success of these programs. Questions you need to ask yourself are: Are these programs bringing people to God? Are these programs fulfilling the need or accomplishing the goals that they were originally intended by it’s original mission? Are these outreach programs managed well? Can you and your congregation clearly see the good fruits of these programs or outreaches within your community or abroad? Are there suspicions or controversies surrounding these programs or the churches uses and management of these program funds?
  • #3 When the good word and the good fruits of your pastor and congregation as a majority have visible, crystal clear evidence of putting forth good fruits, good works, and a good Spirit of God.

#3-a     Notice your pastor. Here is the big one! Is he kind, joyful, gentle, demonstrates self control and sound wisdom? Is his personal and family life in order? Is he actively participating in sins such as adultery, theft, physical violence, or an aggressive, hostile, or racist behavior? Does he wear expensive clothing, suits, and shoes. Is his jewelry and other accessories costly and excessive? Is his car, home, and other materialistic possessions excessive and overly expensive. A good Christian, a biblical pastor will live modestly, not only because this is an example of our Lord Jesus but he would do it because in his heart he would know how important his role was and how important it is not to cause his congregation to stumble or think twice about the sincerity of his office. If he in any of his history as an ordained spiritual leader had engaged in highly questionable actions such as criminal or highly immoral activities and he has not stepped down or relieved himself as unworthy to continue to be an example of a LEADER under God you can almost with 100% certainty know that he is not of God and the Spirit it not in him.

Do not confuse nor justify these actions as human error in that every man makes mistakes. Although this is true and we know that God will forgive us all, if your pastor has not repented from any transgressions in EVERY WAY THERE IS TO REPENT AND BE REFORMED and has not made a 360 degree turn into righteousness he should be asked to step down or you should no longer support this church. Even Solomon a great king and a chosen one of God lost his seat as the king when transgressing the law of God. Why? Because he was not giving a good example to the people and it was causing the children of God to stumble. Because Solomon brought idols, apostacy, as well as a coveting Spirit into the land of God. The pastor, in the love of God and his congregations should voluntarily step down if he truly cared about the sheep and their well being in a spirit of repentance and respect for God.

  • #4 When doctrine that your pastor and church is teaching is the sound, biblical word of God. Many pastors today and dating all the way back to the beginning of the church have made this same mistake, over, and over, and over again. The word of God is the Bible and many of the teachings of Jesus are not that popular in our society at all. The ministry is not a popularity contest. The ministry is not a new media machine to feed you want you want to hear according to your wordly lusts and desires. The word of God is for correction of the unholy and to divide the flock of Jesus from the flock of the world. There are numerous topics in the Bible that are extremely unpopular and controversial among every church in the world. If your pastor has resolved to feeding you what you want to hear other than what God wants you to hear this is very dangerous, quite literally a matter of life or death. Here are some questions to ask yourself about the doctrines of your church. Does the church go by the Bible strictly or are there uses of other books and traditions that are heavily incorporated into your churches beliefs? Does your church talk to you about the ten commandments? Does your church prophesy or discuss the 3 end tiem messages of the Angels? Does your church believe in the basic principles of the bible? Does your church put an emphasis on prosperity preaching and “double blessings” or “name it and claim it” or other popular slogans promoting materialism and consumerism? Will your church spend the first 30 minute of the sermon soliciting money from you and passing around the offerings plate several times? Does your church condemn you or make you feel bad about not giving them your money? Is there an over abundance of drama, gossip, sexual promiscuity, adultery, and crime within your congregation continuously?

Keep in mind that no church is perfect. BUT there is a distinct difference between having a few rotten apples and having an entire congregations filled with mostly rotten apples. When your pastor and the church invite in doctrines and traditions of men or they extort money from the congregation for personal gain, they invite in the devil to rule their house. You will never see good fruits come forth from a church and pastor with these characteristics. NEVER. You may feel a short term euphoria or receive false blessings of material possessions but this will always be followed by a spirit of restlessness and doom and the euphoria will never be consistent causing double mindedness and blinding you spiritually.

Please realize also that the devil was once the most powerful and beautiful Angel in all of heaven. He was the Sun of the morning and a musician. He slick talked 1/3 of God’s angels to following him. Satan also has supernatural powers on earth to bring blessings and curses and destruction. Notice Satan’s specific skills. These are the areas the devil will almost always use to tempt you.

LUCIFER was the sun of morning- WORSHIP OF SUN GODS- SUNDAY WORSHIP

LUCIFER was a great musician- THE EVIL NATURE OF MOST MUSIC-BASS DRUMS

LUCIFER was beautiful-COSMETICS- VANITY- UNGODLY FASHION- SEXUALITY

LUCIFER was a con artist- CULTS-SALES TECHNIQUES-SLICK TONGUE-TRICKERY

LUCIFER was jealous & wanted God’s position- THEFT-MANIPULATION-COVETNESS

I am not saying that all of the people within the congregation are bad. What I am saying is that if you have not felt the Holy Spirit, the fruits of peace and joy and that is what you are looking for you will NEVER find it in these sorts of churches. Why? Because if you are a true child of God, God knows this. God will never let your heart be settled in an environment that is not healthy for you. God will NEVER let your mind and heart be at peace when you are listening to false doctrine.

It is also important to realize that the still, calm little voice that you hear in the back of your mind telling you that something is wrong…will not plead with you forever. It is important to walk in the light while you have it lest darkness befall you and you become lost. Think it can’t happen to you? Take a long hard look at all of the mega churches in the world. Take a look at a person like Hitler. Take a look at the elite of the world. If it happened to them it can and will happen to you if you do not choose light.

 

God Won’t Help Starving Children| Let us Reason Together

The Christians of the world exclaim, “Why, Oh God, the omniscient Lord of mankind, why do you allow our children to suffer, to starve, to die?”

 

The atheists alike remark, “If there is a God why would he allow such a thing, I cannot believe in such a God!”

 

Matthew 18:6 “WHOEVER causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to the man by whom the offense comes!”

POOR CHILDREN 7

God exclaims to his followers,”Why, Oh why sons of man, why have YOU allowed the children of the earth to starve?”

 

Then God shakes his head and says,”Oh ye of little faith how can you look away from what you have done?” “How have you closed your eyes and shut your ears to the truth before you?”

 

 

 

Let’s take a closer look at who is really allowing the children to starve.

A Story With Few Words

  

SHEIKH & OTHER ELITE   VS.  LABORERS OF DUBAI

 

 

 

Dubai Skyscrapers and labor abuse

 

 

ELITE TUTSI ARMED FORCES & FOLGERS   VS.  THE POOR OF BURUNDA

Burundi and Folgers Coffee| CIVIL WAR

    AMERICAN CEO’S       VS.      AMERICAN WORKER’S

 

Disturbing Pay Gaps in America

 AFRICAN ELITE      VS.    AFRICAN IMPOVERISHED

Africa’s tiny elite group make a run for it

 

RELIGIOUS LEADERS            VS.            IMPOVERISHED CHILDREN OF GOD

 

 

THE VATICAN OF GOLD

THE PREACHERS PRIVATE JET

MEGA CHURCHES INVESTIGATED

 

SO NOW ASK YOURSELF AGAIN WHO IS LETTING WHO STARVE?

Do you care about what you just seen? You should…

If you did STOP BUYING CORPORATE PRODUCTS, STOP SUPPORTING WEALTHY RELIGIOUS LEADERS, STOP SUPPORTING SUPER STARS AND ATHLETES WHO ARE OVER PAID, STOP SUPPORTING CAPITALISM, STOP BEING A BLIND CONSUMER. Care about someone other than yourselves and your own comfort.

CLEAR THE HAZE AND OPEN YOUR EYES

The world is in pain.

 

 

 

 

Don’t Panic! But pay close attention in 2016 moving forward.

Don’t Panic! The World is Coming To an End| PART I-PRAYER

Don’t Panic! The World is Coming To an End| PART II-WATCHING

Welcome All! This is my second blog post about what to do when the times of troubles (or trials and tribulations) falls upon us all. This blog is a little heavy so if you haven’t already read about the good news about all of this please read the first part by clicking the link at the top about prayer.

I wanted to address something really quickly or possibly not so quickly. After posting my first blog I went online and tried to see if the title of my blog had any competition. What I found is a swirling ocean of blogs titles in conflicting variations of the exact topic I am talking about here. “Don’t panic the world is not going to end” “Don’t worry investors the world will not end Wall Street is fine” “They said the world was ending in 2012, we’re still here”

Then on the other spectrum we have “Things you need to know about the end of the world”, “Is America going to end?” “The apocalypse in 2016!”

So with these things being written about with such intensity and frequency I wanted to address a few points and clear the air with what specifically I am trying to accomplish with this blog.

  1. No one including me, knows the day or the hour when the Lord will come again. Even though I feel the urgency within my heart that something big is about to happen…I felt this urgency without any outside interference. There is a quickness an urgency, a call to pay attention among all of the people of the world. This is not just exclusive to the United States this is inclusive of every race, every religion, and every walk of life on the planet.
  2. Many are calling this urgency and quickness of Spirit a false alarm. After-all theMayans predicted the end of the world in 2012 right. The turn of the millennium boasted the Great Apocalypse…and yet we are still here. False flag right?  First of all the Millennium scare was made up. There was no
    Empty Shelves
    Empty shelves at Walmart during mass hysteria Millennium phenomenon

    actual reason for any of us to have believed that the turn of the millennium would have had any other outcome other than some broken New Year’s Resolutions. This was just a rumor riddled with superstition and an opportunity for the media to get high ratings and for Hollywood to embrace some new story lines. That is all. Secondly, the Mayan calendar had nothing to do with the end of the world. The Mayan calendar ending was just a symbol of a “New Beginning”. No where in any ancient writings was there any indication what-so-ever that the Mayans were trying to predict the end of the world. The Mayan calendar actually had a completely different interpretation.

 

 

See National Geographic Article –>Maya Calendars Predicts Life Goes On

2012-movie
Hollywood embraces and pushes 2012 phenomenon.

So then what do all of these rumors and false flags really mean and why are they happening?

Matthew 24:3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the signs of your coming and of the end age?”

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will HEAR OF WARS and RUMORS OF WARS, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.

When people, including Christians, decided that the Mayan calendar and superstition around a date was the end of the world, they raised these things up to be the coming of the Messiah. This should not have alarmed anyone at all because Jesus gave us clear signs for what to look for when the end times were near. So what are these signs?

  1. We will hear of wars and rumors of wars.
  2. Nation will rise against nation and kingdoms against kingdoms
  3. There will be famines and plagues in DIVERSE places. (Not just in the east it will be everywhere)
  4. There will be earthquakes in DIVERSE places. (Not just California or other common locations, it would be world wide)
  5. The things above will be the BEGINNING of the birth pains of the world

THEN AFTER THAT

  1. You will be handed over to be persecuted by death.
  2. You will be hated by all nations because of me. (Jesus and God)
  3. Many will turn from the faith.
  4. Many will turn against each other.
  5. False prophets will appear and deceive many.

THEN BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE THINGS ABOVE

  1. Wickedness will increase.
  2. The love of MOST will grow cold.
  3. FEW will stand strong to the end and those who endure they will be saved. (There is roughly 9 billion people in the world so don’t be put off by the word few)
  4. And this gospel of the world will be preached to ALL NATIONS in the whole world.
  5. Terrifying wonders in the sky and heavens
  6. Great Earthquake the biggest one ever on Earth
  7. THEN THE END WILL COME.

WARNING IMAGES BELOW ARE GRAPHIC

This is all found in the book of Matthew in Chapter 24.

As you can see this is a progressive, step by step account for exactly what is going to happen before Jesus comes to rescue his people and destroy the wicked. (This list is not complete I will come back and edit soon.) Many of these things had not happened in the past and even though it seems like a lot of them have happened already the gospel is just now reaching the entire world. God is long suffering and the reason it seems like this is being drug out for an excessively long time is because God wants us to repent and He wants EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the world a chance to hear the gospel and follow Him if that is their choice.

Right now we are just barely in the second set of the three sections above of things to come. We have not seen the fire from the heavens, we have not seen major famine or plagues hit in its entirety, and even though it does seem like many hearts have grown cold, most have not, we still have plenty of people in the world who have love due to the comforts they enjoy. When the famine and great trials hits us this love/comfort will no longer be the case and you can bet that people will become very animalistic and dangerous once their basic necessities and rights are taken away.

With all of that said I am going to go into some of the things we need to pay attention to and how to go about finding information that is correct and truthful. I will specifically be referring to things pertaining to those of us that are in the United States of America mainly because we have a very fatal disillusion and detachment from reality thanks to rumors, the media, Hollywood, government, false sense of securities, entitlements, and luxuries or consumerism just to name a few.

THE ANTICHRISTS| THE FINANCIAL, MILITARY, AND RELIGIOUS POWERS OF THE WORLD

I want to mention quickly that the anti-christs are people or organizations that are against the word of God. Jesus says throughout the Old and New Testaments that there will be false prophets and anti-christs. This is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the major powers that are described in Revelations describing the actions that have not completely been full-filled yet. Who are these Anti-Christ world powers? Before I list these I want to say that I will not be explaining the background on Revelations and these world powers in this blog. I will only be sharing what we need to be watching for and who we need to be watching. I will write a blog about the prophecies possibly in another blog although this information is available all over the internet right now.

1. MILITARY POWER- The United States of America

What things do I need to watch for?

  • THE PUSH FOR GUN CONTROL. Paying attention to what is going on in current legislation in regards to controlling the weapons licensed and owned by civilian Americans is very critical. It sound like a great idea to pass laws to take away gun control in order to reduce crime but this is a lamb speaking like a dragon. You will see why in the next bullet.
  • BE SKEPTICAL OF WHAT YOU HEAR IN THE MEDIA There are two major things that are going on right now in all of the major media networks. The first major issue is the push to divide the people against each other. Police vs. Public, Black vs. White, American vs. Muslim, Heterosexual vs. Homosexual, Isis vs. World. Notice that I didn’t mention Rich vs. Poor. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. The second point about the media I will make in the next bullet.
  • SHILLS AND CRISIS ACTORS. A shill is an employee for a corporation or political party or other private interest that receives compensation for “swaying” or Trolls4“leading” public opinions on the internet and possibly in other forms of media. They dominate many of the controversial news topics and dominate the comment sections and forums by instigating fights, insulting others, and aggressively pushing a particular point of view. A crisis actor is the same as a shill as far as their primary goal being to sway or lead public opinion or create imaginary crises and terrorism that does not exist in reality. For an example you can google the Boston bombing hoax, the Florida State University Hoax, San Bernardino shooting Hoax etc. I am not saying that every single story reported on Fox, CNN, or other media sites are all fake but some of them are. All I am trying to get across is do not be too worked up until you are sure they are true and pay close attention to the names of the “victims” and the statements of the witnesses. Your human instincts will kick in. You will know which ones are true and which ones may not be.
  • MONITOR YOUR FEMA CENTERS AND MILITARY BASES OR ANY STRANGE ACTIVITY IN YOUR COMMUNITIES BY OFFICIALS I am not saying to set up 24 hour a day surveillance or to stress yourself out about this. This is very large pill to swallow and I am not saying that all of this is going to happen today, tomorrow, next month, or even this year. Let me say this again. None of us know when or how FEMA_train11exactly all of these things are going to unfold. Do not get panicked and over react to any of this. I only want you to be aware that strange things are happening and I want everyone with an ear to hear to be prepared. When the final curtain is drawn all of these things will happen fast and I don’t want anyone to be completely in the dark although many will be. If you do see any strange goings on in your community do not challenge them directly or make a scene and act suspicious. Just take a mental note of what you seen or heard. If anyone does witness anything suspicious I would be eternally grateful to hear from you. Send me a private message and if you have anything you would like to share including stories, images, or videos we can discuss how to post them anonymously and safely. Please try to avoid posting these things in the comments section.
  • CONTINUED CENSORSHIP, MARTIAL LAW, RUMORS OR TALKS OF CURFEW IN THE NAME OF PEACE AND SECURITY As you have probably noticed already many websites and bloggers have opted out of having a comments section. This is not by accident. Some will also notice that their Facebook, YouTube, and Google apps are also being blocked in various places. These things will persistently and aggressively getting worse. There are now laws being passed that you can be arrested and fined in certain states for comments that are “threatening” be aware of your states laws regarding these topics to avoid trouble. The other thing under this bullet that you need to monitor is any discussions at all about instituting martial law and curfew. Once these rumors start to circulate you need to have your eyes and ear wide open. I will post in my next blog things you can do to prepare for the unknowable and unstable situation we are in.

2. FINANCIAL POWER-LONDON? PAYPAL? APPLE???

We have all heard the famous scripture in Revelations regarding the inability to buy or sell. We all know that one of the big financial powers of the world is London. What we probably are not aware of is the recent push by investors for PayPal to step up to the plate by offering a well rounded banking experience which could in effect surpass China’s CIPS. This financial power in my opinion is unclear but I think it is important to follow the trends of the “New Money” idea which I assume will replace the paper and coin currency completely. See Paypal’s new SuperBowl commercial here–> New Money

I am truly curious but not to anxious at all to see what the New World Order monetary model will look like. This is still a mystery for now. But be watchful how it plays out.

3. RELIGIOUS POWER-THE PAPACY AND THE ORGANIZATION OF THE WORLD CHURCH

I am sure we have all heard the accusations of the papacy being the one one religious world power. We can hear all over the news and the web about the call for unity of many different doctrines and many different belief systems being incorporated under on or_955_slaverycommon WORDLY church. In the end there will be two movements. One group headed to the Bible and the altar of Jesus Christ and the others headed towards the world church. The world church will be more aggressive and a larger movement in comparison to the church of the doctrine of God. Although the papacy initiated this call for unity we cannot say that only the papacy is included in this gathering unto the church of the Anti-Christ and it is dangerous to believe this way. Nearing the end people and churches from every denomination and every spiritualistic believe system will all gather together under one common idea of unity and security. It will not be exclusive to the papacy or the Catholic Church. In fact the Roman Catholic Church in essence will no longer be for Roman Catholics. All people who fall this movement will collectively be considered by God as the church of the Anti-Christ. Make sure to pay attention to what is going on in the religious world especially in regards to the freedoms of religious speech and worship. The world church will worship on Sunday, God’s church will worship on Saturday, the Sabbath.

Don’t Panic! The World is Coming to an End Soon.

dontblamegodblamesin

Sound like a contradiction? Or a click and bait? It is not.

In a whirlwind of racism, hatred, destruction of family and individual morals or values, wars and rumors of wars, crime accelerating at an alarming pace, conspiracy theorists (which may or may not be true), and lies from those we should be able to trust such as our government and the media there is no wonder many people in our world are confused and feel, at best, hopeless.

Despite the seemingly inevitable demise of our society and our world as we know it there is good news!

The negativity that we face every day at our jobs, schools or universities, within our families, and in our interactions with the outside world can be conquered. WE can be victorious. In the middle of these troubles there is undeniable, indisputable HOPE.

Why? Because the Lord our God is coming soon!

Don’t Panic! The World is Coming to an End Soon.

Sound like a contradiction? Or a click bait? It is not.

In a whirlwind of racism, hatred, destruction of family and individual morals or values, wars and rumors of wars, crime accelerating at an alarming pace, conspiracy theories (which may or may not be true), and lies from those we should be able to trust such as our government and the media it is really not very shocking as to why many people in our world are confused and feel, at best, hopeless.

Despite the seemingly inevitable demise of our society and our world as we know it there is good news!

The negativity that we face every day at our jobs, schools or universities, within our families, and in our interactions with the outside world, can be conquered. WE can be victorious. In the middle of these troubles there is undeniable, indisputable, unsurpassed HOPE.

How? Because the Lord our God is coming soon to relieve us from this terrible world!

These trials that we are soon about to face will be the worst trials ever experienced in the planets history of existence.

Matthew 24:21 For there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now–and never to be equaled again. ESV

 

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines, and plagues everywhere; and there will be terrors and great signs in heaven.

We know that many of these things are already coming to pass. I have been a victim of the vicious circle of researching conspiracy theories and closely following the news, watching, waiting, for any little clue that will indicate when all of these signs that Jesus has written about will finally come to pass. Recently this obsession with trying to fit together the pieces to this apocalyptic puzzle had put me in a place of dread and hopelessness with over a dozen mystery puzzle pieces balancing on my heavy shoulders. After breaking away from the internet and other damaging sites such as YouTube I began praying and asking God, “What do I need to do to feel peace?”, “How should I be preparing for what’s ahead?”, “How can I use what I know to be constructive?” After weeks of being paralyzed by the redundant nature of my internet searches in pursuit for the truth it finally came to me. I will start a blog.  I felt that writing this blog was important because through my experiences with seeking the truth I could not find anything about the things that I really wanted to know. I wound up so deeply entrenched into conspiracy after conspiracy that eventually I forgot what I had even been on the search for in the first place, and that was the truth. The truth is that we are living in very precarious times and we all need to be prepared and wide awake but MORE IMPORTANTLY than that we need to be able to know how to have peace through our search for the truth. In part I and II of this blog I want to discuss what we need to do in the times ahead, the things we need to watch for or be aware of, and how to handle this information in a positive and constructive manner once we have found it.

I believe this topic is of extreme importance for Christians as well as those who are on the fence about whether there is a God or any hope at all in Jesus Christ.

How do we have peace of mind in an unstable world?

PRAY and WATCH

There are several ways we can have peace through any situation. Faith and trust in Jesus are two of the major ones. But in the gospel of Luke, Jesus had very specific instruction for what we needed to be doing right now. I am speaking through personal experience when I say I believe one of the MOST IMPORTANT things we can do as we near the complete execution of the trials of our world is that we need to PRAY and WATCH, daily or quite realistically moment by moment when things seem to begin to fall apart all around us.

Matthew 10:16-17 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of 38e8c56021f3b90a57e428d5b92da3f3wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; …”

 

Luke 21:36 WATCH ye therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

I will start with prayer since the concept of watching, or being aware of the world around us, will take me much longer to address (As I had said earlier “Watching” had became a weakness for me and I want to really delve into what I have found on this topic in the second part of this blog.).

Prayer is one of the most important and possibly one of the easiest things we can do as Christians to call the Lord’s protection over our families, our friends, our neighbors, our governments, our merchants, ourselves, and everyone and everything in the world. Prayer can be done from anywhere. You can pray in your car, you can pray while your at work, you can talk to God while your in the shower, you can plea to God while your walking down the street to your favorite coffee shop. Quite literally you can pray anywhere, anytime, and any place, in any frame of mind (Angry, sad, joyful, doubtful, hopeless, etc) about anything or anyone.

Okay so prayers important. What should I pray about?

Pray for everything and everyone…daily!

When we hurt God is there for us.
  1. Pray for fellow Christians. Ask God to give all of his followers peace, supernatural wisdom, and guidance. Plea with the Lord to give us all endurance and strength to withstand the trials that we are about to face. Pray that we will all have the right words to say, the right ways to be helpful to others, the right actions to take in any and every situation. Pray that we will have the right Spirit and that God will pour his Spirit out on the one’s who do not have it and who are in desperate need of it.
  2. Pray for those who have not yet found God. This next concept may sound very strange to you and I, but we need to pray that trials will come upon those of us that are not taking God seriously. Why? Because trials bring us together, trials make us stronger, trials build character, they open our eyes to the truth. Even some of us Christians need to pray for trials upon ourselves if we have gotten to comfortable in this world. “Well wait a minute…so I am suppose to pray for God to give me and others hard times?”  Yes. I do not mean to say that we should pray for bad things to happen to others grudgingly or with a heart filled with contempt and hate. It is important to note that when you pray for cursing and revenge upon others in the wrong Spirit not only will God rebuke your prayer and send that person blessings but God will turn around and give you the very thing you had prayed negatively towards your brothers and sisters. What I am saying is in love and in the name of a great revival of the people… ask for hard times to awaken us and others so that we can remove the clouds and dust from our eyes and minds.

Let me ask you a question. We can see that the world is divided and everyone is fighting with one another over everything from our personal differences to whether NASA really landed on the moon. If a major earthquake came tomorrow and destroyed a third of the disaster victimscountry would we still be worried about racism or bigotry? Would we still be worried about who is rich and who is poor? Would it matter who has lied and who has not? Would our past short comings matter anymore or would we unite as one, as a loving caring people, and come together to offer support and words of encouragement? I believe most of us would unite as one. A people that is not divided one with the other will be victorious in all things!

James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

3.  Pray for your public leaders, people of influence, and people of power. Pray for our military, our law enforcement, the ones who may turn against us

We all have made big mistakes. Some of us have made mistakes repeatedly. When we make mistakes we need prayer more than ever. Pray for your leaders.

unknowingly or willfully. Although we can know with certainty that prayer simply cannot and will not reverse what is about to happen to our world we can pray that there will be someone or somethings that can and will be reversed by our earnest prayers. Think about the Holocaust and how there were various soldiers and other brave souls who went against Hitler who helped many of the Jews to persevere or be saved. Think about the underground railroads in America that saved many slaves. We should pray that brave souls will have the courage to stand up against our oppressors, who will help us and who will help others no matter what the cost.

 

4. Say the Lord’s Prayer…daily. The Lord’s Prayer is a very common prayer that many times is over-looked or is assumed to be not as important as our personal prayers. Not all people think this but some do. This cannot be further from the truth. The Lord’s Prayer is a “corporate” (I don’t like having to use the word corporate but it really is the best word for these purposes) prayer that covers many important key points and the most wonderful thing about this prayer is it starts with the words “OUR Father”. Not my, not your, OUR. When we say this prayer, especially if it is recited out loud, not only are we declaring God’s power and his promise for a new and perfect world but we are praying for everyone in the world. There is not a singular pronoun in this prayer when referring to our fellow brothers and sisters there is only OUR, US, WE, and THOSE. If prayer is a foreign concept for you and you are not sure how to begin this is truly a great start. If you are not familiar with this prayer it can be found in Matthew 6:9-13.

Matthew 6:7-13 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathens do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.children praying

After this manner therefore pray ye: OUR Father which is in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give US this day our daily bread. And forgive US OUR sins, as WE forgive THOSE that sin against US.

And lead US not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen- (Let it be done)

In conclusion to some of these important points I felt I needed to share, I want to say again what I have said earlier. We can pray anytime, anywhere, for anyone. man prayingOur prayers do not have to be long and drawn out. We do not have to repeat ourselves over and over within the same prayer, God knows what we are about to say before we even begin. I am not saying that we cannot or should not pray for the same things each day. As a beginner, pray in a way that is comfortable for you. As a veteran, pray in the way that is comfortable for you. The most important thing that I would like to stress is that although we may soon come to a time when prayer is all we have left, and it will be important to stay in prayer for long periods of time, prayers can also be simple and quick. Quick or short prayers can be just as heartfelt, sincere, and POWERFUL as other prayers. Never ever underestimate the power of prayer.

I also want to add a “disclaimer” about prayers. Just because you have not received an answer right away does not mean your prayer was not heard in heaven. Just because the things you prayed for have not happened yet does not mean they have gone unanswered. Sometimes the answers to our prayers are to be patient and sometimes the things we pray for are not good for us and God has simply said, “No, I know what is best for you even though you cannot see it right now.”

I didn’t expect to go this long on the prayer section and there may be some edits in the future but I really want to get these posted tonight because after scouring the web I feel this is OH so important. I am working on the “WATCHING” portion of this blog now and will hopefully be back to post that link below.

In the meantime you are all in my prayers no matter where or who you are.

God Bless
