Recently while being ill for close to two weeks I had way too much time on my hands for Facebook. I was shocked each day as I was determined to look at “professing Christians” pages to see if their page showed that they were walking a Christian walk. The devil has so many duped into thinking that they can go to church and that makes them a Christian. He gets them to believe that because they are around a bunch of others that sin just like them that it makes it ok. I noticed one ignorant sign on a person’s page that said “don’t judge me just because my sin is different than yours”. If that isn’t stupid as can be! Just put a sign up that says “shut up so that I can sin in peace”. Most professing Christians in this country come nowhere close to trying to fulfill the following scripture…..
1Peter 1:15 But now you must be Holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is Holy. 16 For the Scriptures say, "You must be Holy because I am Holy."
Hebrews 12:14 is also very clear in saying that WITHOUT HOLINESS NO ONE WILL EVER SEE THE LORD! This country is such a pitiful mess when it comes to people professing they are Christians. They want to justify (just-a-lie) their “50 or so shades of no gray area sin”! They want to be able to fit into the world and still say that they follow Jesus. If I hear this line from a professing Christian again I think I will throw up “pardon my French” as they spew off a little profanity. They watch television that entertains them no matter how much that it goes against God’s Word! They go to movies that are so foul but they justify it by saying for example “that just the way military people talk” or “that’s just the way cops talk”. No! That’s the way the devil and his followers talk! A recent extremely popular movie took the Lord’s name in vain several times and had over 100 “F-bombs” dropped but “professing Christians” flocked to see it. I am sorry people but the military and the good old U.S.A. doesn’t stand above my Jesus! I know cops and military people who are “truly saved” and they don’t talk like that. If Hollywood has to put that devilish trash in their movies then as for me and my house we are not going! We will not allow filth to come into our house! What happened to following this scripture…..
Psalms 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
I have deleted many “professing Christians” that I have known for a long time that had pictures of themselves out with others partying. The women dressed like “hoochie mamas” with their breast hanging out. There is no difference between these people and the people I deal with on Holloway Street other than the fact that these phonies show up for church on Sundays! Their eternal destination is the same! Can’t people see that they seek out others who are living sinful lives so that they can be comfortable in their sin while all the time the Lord sees everything they are doing? They are bound for hell like dumb sheep to a slaughter! This is the same reason that people will church hop so that they can find a place with the same wicked spirit as their own. Jesus said the following…..
John 8:43 "Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 44 "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 "But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 "Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 "He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God."
Let me break a verse down to hopefully be able to get it into people’s heads as to what a “truly saved” person is like…..
2Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! (Amplified)
To start let’s look at the word “ingraft” which means to set or fix firm and deep. This of course is not going to happen all at once but the desire for it to happen should be in the person “if” they are truly saved. They should be striving daily to plant His Word so deep in themselves that the conviction of the Holy Spirit will fall on them every time they start to fall back into sin.
Next let’s look at “he is a new creation”. As the Amplified says “we are a NEW CREATURE all together! This too is not going to happen all at once but again the desire should be their or there is a huge problem! The person is not saved! The person is not born again!
It states that “the old moral and spiritual condition has passed away”. People, what happens when someone “passes away”? THEY DIE!!! If someone has not DIED to their SINFUL LIFESTYLE they are NOT SAVED PERIOD! It doesn’t matter how many sinners prayers (man made and not in the Bible) you have repeated!
The verse ends with “behold, the fresh and new has come”! If the fresh and new is not there the person IS NOT SAVED! The devil has instilled all kinds of trash to clutter people’s minds like “they are a work in progress”. The Lord is going to examine one’s heart and if the fresh and new is not there then the “work in progress” person will find themselves smoldering in HELL! You have more “christianese language” that so many come up with saying “we are all sinners”. This again is a lame attempt to justify sin! There will be NO SINNERS in heaven PERIOD! A sinner is a person who PRACTICES SIN! A “TRULY SAVED” person will have the HOLY SPIRIT to warn them when they start to slip into sin. A “TRULY SAVED” person will feel that conviction of the Holy Spirit then will REPENT with the intent to never slip back into that sin again!
NEWS FLASH!!! - Just because a man stands behind a pulpit and says something doesn’t make it true!
If it doesn’t line up with the Word of God then it needs to be called out as a lie! There are too many people that refuse to call a pastor or leader out for being wrong! I know of churches where the pastor is a known homosexual! People in his church have told me of the details of this! People know this to be true and still sit week after week and listen to the demon! They they know this are bound for hell because they are with knowledge!
2Peter 2:20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a Holy life.
Another church the pastor (pimp) is having sex with multiple women in the church and the congregation knows it and does not call this demon out! I have had multiple prostitutes come onto me early on when arriving in Durham offering to have sex with me. They did this because so many “christian imposters” have had sex with them. One prostitute was having regular sex with one of the high ups in a popular Catholic church in the area. It goes on and on with people that are phony as the day is long in “their religion”. How can they be so stupid to believe that the Lord does not know what they are doing?
Romans 2:16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone's secret life.
Romans 14:10 Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For the Scriptures say, "'As surely as I live,' says the LORD, 'every knee will bend to Me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God. 12 Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God.
Ecclesiastes 12:14 God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.
2Corinthians 5:10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
This has been burning inside of me to get this message out. Many will not want to hear it. Many will not want to take heed to the conviction that the Holy Spirit places on them. One thing for sure is that anyone who has taken the time to read this will not be able to stand before THE ONE AND ONLY RIGHTEOUS GOD and say that they were not warned of what lies ahead! We are living in the worst of times! How long will our HOLY FATHER allow all of this to go on? If you are not ready to stand before Him I pray that you will get ready. I pray that if you know others that are not truly living for Him that you will share this message in hope that they will get right!
Ezekiel 3:17 "Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from Me, warn people immediately. 18 If I warn the wicked, saying, 'You are under the penalty of death,' but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths. 19 If you warn them and they refuse to repent and keep on sinning, they will die in their sins. But you will have saved yourself because you obeyed Me. 20 "If righteous people turn away from their righteous behavior and ignore the obstacles I put in their way, they will die. And if you do not warn them, they will die in their sins. None of their righteous acts will be remembered, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. 21 But if you warn righteous people not to sin and they listen to you and do not sin, they will live, and you will have saved yourself, too."
I know in my heart that He has appointed me as a watchman. The warning has been delivered!
