King Ahab and Jezebel, Part 7

There was not only no national salvation for Israel on its way as a result of God’s victory at Mt. Carmel. Elijah now faced a new problem, one that he probably did not expect. In this case, as we read, Jezebel wasted no time. She quickly sent a message to Elijah saying that he would be dead by that time on the next day. No sign of repentance on her part! Imagine watching or seeing 450 prophets of the god you worship get cut down by the sword after losing a very decisive and clear battle between the false god of Baal and the only true God, Jehovah. I get the feeling Ahab was hoping for such a response from her because he wasn’t man enough to do it himself. Yep, he wanted Jezebel to fight this battle for him.

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 6

But the Elite are blind to Satan’s (and certainly God’s) plans! They are working so hard behind the scenes to unify the world that they are not aware that once they bring the world together in its final global empire form (though they fully expect themselves to be the ones to rule; ten of the most important and powerful men of the Elite families), the Antichrist will step up at that point and literally take over, according to Scripture. The Elite will have done all the hard work but at the right time, Antichrist will waltz into the situation and take control. He will use fatal force to win his point.

Satanism in Hollywood? Not Necessarily What You Might Think

Much of what passes for Satanism today in Hollywood is simply theater, nothing more, in my opinion. It makes people think that America is losing its biblical foundations, so Christians will get all worked up and do something to counteract it. In reality, America lost its biblical foundation decades ago. Satanism is designed to be shocking and intended to keep Christians alert and on edge, and even in fear, looking for other signs of societal failure. We shouldn’t fall for it, but too many do.

Not All Jews Believe in Any God

Fellow Christian, it is not going to get easier. It is going to become more difficult. Life will separate immature, carnal Christians from those who take fellowship with God seriously. If you are not walking in fellowship with God, you are not being empowered to stand against the evil that is becoming openly prevalent today. Without being in fellowship with God, you will see people as “enemies” instead of as people who need the only salvation that is available today, in Jesus. They are not our enemies. They are enemies of the cross, but even so, our job is to present to them the gospel that saves.

Satan Will Use Whatever He Can to Fill Spiritual Holes in People

Satan doesn’t want people to become Christians. That his secondary agenda, with his first being to thwart God at every turn, including doing his best to keep Jesus from returning to this earth physically during the Second Coming, which occurs at the end of the Tribulation period. One of the best ways Satan can keep people from becoming a Christian is to keep them as far away from Jesus as possible. Obviously, if Satan can create ways for people to kill themselves (even accidentally, through illicit drug use), then he’ll go for it. One less individual who will make it into heaven.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 6

Folks, you may be one who needs to find a balance between a Christian’s involvement in the political arena and evangelism. I would hope that you would err on the side of greater evangelism and less on politics. God’s plan is written in stone. It is unchangeable just as His plan to create Israel and bring forth from that nation a Messiah, a Savior was unchangeable. This Savior would make salvation available to all who would come, believing, trusting in the Name that stands alone, rising high above all others, “so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” (Philippians 2:10).

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 3

So why did God allow Satan to do all of this only to stop him from completing his mission? Was God afraid that He was inevitably too weak to deal with Satan? Let’s not be absurd. There are only two reasons why God “delayed” the inevitable here. First, the nation of Israel had not yet been created. From the nation of Israel would come to Messiah/Savior of humanity for those who would trust in Him through faith. It was only after God the Son came in human flesh as Savior to live a life of sinless perfection and die a sinner’s death only to rise again because death could not hold Him, would Satan be allowed to bring His Isaiah 14 promises to fruition in earnest. Second, God wanted to ensure that Satan had every opportunity to bring his whispered goals to fruition, but they would be done in God’s time.

Face It: Anti-Semitism is Fully Satanic, Pt 1

The real tragedy here is that Antisemitism is still alive and well today. However, instead of a growing resistance against it, we see a full-on growth of it throughout the world. While on one side we have many in Arab countries who either downplay or outright deny that the Jewish holocaust ever occurred, the other side ignores that and simply does its best to paint Jews and the nation of Israel as the source of continued problems, not only throughout the Middle East, but the world itself.

Satan Quit Gig and Owns a Nightclub in the City of Angels

Frankly, I think the real Satan enjoys these kinds of shows because they portray him as more like a human than the Bible does and that’s because he’s not human. As far as we know, Lucifer (before the fall, but now Satan), is the highest created being that God created. We’re not really sure if Michael the Archangel or Gabriel (both mentioned in Scripture) are equal to him and chances are that they are not. The testimony of Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 seem to verify that Lucifer was indeed the highest of all of God’s Creation. But he also sinned when pride took up residence in his heart. He made some promises that he’s worked very hard to bring to fruition. Isaiah 14 tells us that he promised to become like the Most High. How exactly does that work when that promise comes from a being who has been created by this God that he swears he will become like? The hubris is amazing.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 22

Not only does society throughout the world suffer because of the sin nature, but the earth, as well as animals suffer too, as shown by the image of the rhino above. We are corrupted and die because of the sin nature. We die because in our first parents, we also have fallen from grace and from that point forward the Second Law of Thermodynamics became part of our life. It happens with those we love who are family members or friends. It happens with the pets we have as well. Here is a picture of the cat that I received as my Father’s Day gift almost eleven years ago. Even though he didn’t speak English, he “spoke” his love and loyalty to me and the rest of the family while he lived.
