False Hope Will Not Stop the End (Video)

The greatest lie of Satan is giving fallen humanity false hope. He has been doing that since the beginning by causing us to question God. We can hear his voice down through the ages, “Did God really say?” And we hear it loud and clear today. Both the right and the left are giving this country false hope. The left is saying we can save the planet by reducing fossil fuels or doing without them completely. After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.

False Hope Will Not Stop the End

The greatest lie of Satan is giving fallen humanity false hope. He has been doing that since the beginning by causing us to question God. We can hear his voice down through the ages, “Did God really say?” And we hear it loud and clear today. Both the right and the left are giving this country false hope. The left is saying we can save the planet by reducing fossil fuels or doing without them completely. Although I sincerely commend their willingness to stop the burning of fossil fuels that are harmful to both the environment and public health, they simply don’t have the ability to change man’s heart that’s controlled by selfishness and greed. Only God can change man’s heart. In their outrageous political statements, they say that they can stop or reverse the effects of Global Warming, which is nothing less than giving people false hope. On the right, most will publicly deny Global Warming as fake news and false science. Although I commend the right for their willingness to protect their citizens from the earth’s coming woes by beefing up the military, withdrawing support from other nations, building a large wall on our Southern border, and doling out $76.5 billion for climate resilience and disaster mitigation. Again, they too are ignoring the Words of God about the end and giving people a false hope that they and their communities can survive the coming apocalypse.

If you are either on the left or the right, you have been told that you will overcome what’s coming upon the world. Well, in God’s Book that is simply not true. As the world sinks deeper into their sins then the consequences of those sins are not far behind. Man’s heart is not getting any better, it is getting far worse. The world has gone well beyond their favorite sins of pornography, greed, selfishness, homosexuality, drug addiction, disobedience, stealing, rape, murder, and becoming transgender to thumbing their nose at God. They no longer trust His counsel, His rules, or His direction for their lives. In the stubbornness of their hearts, they are calling forth the wrath of God while they hold tightly to their false hope given to them by the evil one who stands behind both the right and the left. There is a time coming when all of fallen humanity will realize that there is no hope apart from trusting in God alone. Although Global Warming may be an excellent example of God allowing humanity to sink into the consequences of their sins by reaping heatwaves, flooding, and hurricanes, it barely scratches the surface for what God has planned for those who have turned their back on Him and persisted in their unimaginable sins.

Don’t be fooled for one minute, for what you see coming upon the world is not Global Warming, but the hand of God pouring out His wrath on unrighteous humanity. No one will be able to stand, except His faithful remnant. The Bible says, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” Luke 21:25-26). What kind of signs are in the sun, the moon, and the stars, we don’t know exactly, but we do know that they are “shaken” thus having a profound effect upon the planet. It’s common knowledge that the movement of any of our heavenly bodies including the earth either in its trajectory or orbital plane could have a devastating effect. When the heavens are shaken the effect is so great that the sea and the waves are roaring. This sounds like massive hurricanes would have a mind of their own going in one direction then another casting up tremendously powerful waves to flood all the coastal cities in the world. It’s like the oceans of the world are being displaced by some great force, either from the movement of heavenly bodies or the crashing of a giant asteroid on earth, creating storm surges beyond anything we could possibly imagine.

As previously stated, if the heavenly bodies were moved slightly out of their trajectory or orbital plane, this too could have a profound effect not only on the world’s oceans but also on the tectonic plates by causing them to shift violently creating massive earthquakes and volcanoes. Scientists have now come forward with evidence that at one time in earth’s history, the earth was put on a closer path or orbit to the sun before correcting itself. This closer path would have caused a tremendous rise in world temperatures that went well beyond any global warming projections. This would clearly qualify as seeing the powers of heaven shaken. Unlike Global Warming where mankind believes he can reverse it, this shaking of the heavenly bodies would leave mankind completely defenseless. The Bible says that the nations are in “great distress with perplexity.” The distress is so great that they are wringing their hands in desperation, saying there is absolutely nothing that they can do to stop the coming catastrophe. In another place in the Bible, it says that the people are hiding in the “dens and the rocks of the mountains” asking that the rocks fall upon them in order to hide them from the face of God and the wrath of the Lamb (See Revelation 6:16-17). They say, who can control the heavenly bodies, such as the sun, the moon, and the stars? In their mind, no one!

Their fear is sudden and so great that their hearts are failing them. As the roaring sea floods the coastal cities, they are also faced with earthquakes and volcanoes. We are already seeing the number of moderate and major earthquakes around the world in places that don’t normally see them. Typically, out of 473 earthquakes in one week, there are approximately 25% that are considered either moderate or major earthquakes. These numbers are increasing daily and in severity. These are rarely reported by the news service. As the fallen world learns more about the number of earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, volcanoes, and tsunamis decimating planet earth, the more they will feel helpless to do anything about it. When millions, not thousands, are escaping the burning inferno, the hottest and most desolate part of our hemisphere, the Southern continent, to find refuge in our country, it will be pandemonium. Many will pray that the great wall on our Southern border will hold. Furthermore, we are already seeing some of the hottest months on record, with failed crops and economies where thousands are being displaced or dying. When fallen humanity finally, at the last moment, discovers that their hope from either the left or the right is false and that there is nothing they can do about these calamities, there will be no law that can restrain them. Even Hollywood can’t picture the worldwide inhumanity of open hostility and barbarism.

On the other hand, the true believers in Christ who have not been blinded by the world will approach this moment with great joy in their hearts, not for the sinner suffering under the wrath of God, but for God’s justice and mercy for those who are being saved at the last minute. We will also rejoice because we know that our redemption draws near. We know that in a very short time that all of our pain and suffering will cease; that we will be with our God forever. The Bible says, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28). Lift up your heads. Don’t let them sink in depression or sorrow, but lift them up to the glory of God, knowing that although this planet is being destroyed, that there will be a new heaven and a new earth. The Bible says it best, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:4). Praise God!

How to Follow the Holy Spirit (Video)

Without knowledge of the Holy Spirit, it will be impossible to follow Him. So, our first task is to make sure that we know Him, not in just a casual way, but to know Him intimately. Then we can learn together how to listen to the voice of the indwelling Spirit, which will eventually open the door allowing us to follow the Holy Spirit.

How to Follow the Holy Spirit

Without knowledge of the Holy Spirit, it will be impossible to follow Him. So, our first task is to make sure that we know Him, not in just a casual way, but to know Him intimately. When we come to Christ asking Him to save us from our sins and make us into a new creation, then He marks us with the seal of the Holy Spirit through faith and then fulfills His promise by giving us the Comforter to dwell with us as long as we are in these bodies (See John 14:26). Although the Holy Spirit or Comforter is with us from the very moment of our conversion, He has limited access until we completely die to self. This is the first step in following the Spirit. So, how do we die to self, has been an often-misinterpreted topic from the beginning. Perhaps the easiest way to see our self is to take a hard look at our desires, our wants, our way, and our will. Another way to look at our self is to compare it with the rights, wants, desires, and the will of a slave. Now you’re starting to get the picture. To die to self, freely surrenders your will, your desires, your wants, and your rights to the living God through the indwelling Spirit. Anyone can make this confession of faith, but following through on it, will take a lot more work. Let’s proceed.

Surrendering your will is like the great exchange. If we give up our will, then it’s essential that we take on the corresponding will of another and we can’t do that until we know what their will is in the first place. We know God’s will from the study of His Word in the Bible and from listening to the indwelling Spirit. A word of caution at this point is essential, “The indwelling Spirit will never contradict God’s Word in the Bible.” The Bible is very clear on this point saying we must test every spirit, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (I John 4:1). So, how do we test the spirits? The absolute best way is to compare it with the Bible, which means we need to search the Scriptures to see if those things are so (See Acts 17:11). We can also seek the advice of more mature believers in Christ to help point out Scripture that needs to be prayerfully studied. We have confidence in the indwelling Spirit because He does not contradict but confirms and amplifies the Word of God, often drawing out a deeper meaning and helping us to apply that meaning and direction to our lives, which is the will of God. So, the next step is to learn together how to listen to the voice of the indwelling Spirit.

Let me start by saying the Spirit wants to speak to you, that’s what He does. I found it useful in the beginning, especially for the novice, to begin with, a Scripture that has meant so much to you and meditate upon it in complete silence before the Lord. Quietly roll the verse over and over again in your mind asking God to reveal its deeper meaning and how to apply it to your life. If you begin with Scripture or with just meditative prayer, either way, you still need to learn how to listen. Really listen! This starts by stopping your mind from wandering from one topic to another. You must learn how to empty your mind completely. Simple, quiet praise to the Lord will help. Now comes the real hard part, in total silence and solitude wait upon the Lord. Yes, I said wait. Although this is the most difficult part it is the most rewarding because the Spirit will, in His time begin to draw you ever closer to Him, until the water wells up in your eyes and you begin to hear the still small voice of God touching every fiber of your soul. As God begins to pull you closer to Him let go and quietly go with Him. Don’t run away in fright, which many do in the beginning, but rest in the Lord allowing Him to minister to your soul.

Once you begin to meet with God on a regular basis and learn how to listen to His voice through the indwelling Spirit, then you are ready for the next step, learning how to follow the Spirit or keep in step with Him. A key Scripture text to help in our understanding on how to follow the Spirit is in the letter to the Galatians and specifically 5:16-26. (Please open your Bible now.) The Apostle begins by contrasting the flesh with the Spirit. In the old dispensation, God sought to control the flesh with the law by teaching His children, “Thou shall not!” Not too unlike how we teach our little children today. When they misbehave by violating one of our rules, we quickly render the appropriate punishment. But when they get to a certain age, we stop disciplining them as children and start spending more time encouraging them to use their gifts and calling. We spend more time trying to mold their character. This is exactly how God is now treating his children by telling us that we have come of age, that we can resist the flesh by concentrating on walking in the Spirit. We no longer live under the tutelage of the law but have now been set free by the grace of God to walk in the Spirit. The Bible says, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16).

To follow the Spirit is allowing Him to go before you in loving service to others. That’s exactly what the Spirit does. He almost always leads us in service to others. This is one of His primary jobs, but first, He teaches you all things (See John 14:26), so that you can teach others, which is part of your service to others. In our service to others, we will learn how to pass on God’s Word in both words and in, deed. You might say, “I don’t know how to serve or how I should serve.” That’s not a problem. We simply step out on faith praying in the Spirit as we go and believe me the doors will begin to open. One opportunity after another will begin to avail itself. If it’s helping others with some menial task, then the Lord will give us the strength to perform well. If it’s doing something a little bit more complicated, then He will give us the wisdom beyond what we thought possible. If it’s encouraging, edifying, or admonishing someone, then believe me the Spirit will give the correct words just at the right time. Remember through each task we are listening not only to the indwelling Spirit but also listening to the needs of the person we are attempting to help. The key to service is listening and becoming pliable in the hands of God.

We can all learn how to follow the Spirit in loving service to others, thus fulfilling the will of God. So, how do we know if we are following the Holy Spirit? This is known in at least two ways. First, we will produce the fruit of the Spirit in our service and relationship with others. The Bible says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians5:22-23). As you study the Bible and listen to the indwelling Spirit you are cultivating this fruit of the Spirit. Secondly, if you are following the Holy Spirit then you have discovered your own unique Spiritual gifts from your study of the Bible. The Bible says, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant” (I Corinthians 12:1). Furthermore, you will use your Spiritual gifts in your service or ministry to others. Make no mistake we have all been given a Spiritual gift for this purpose. These are the two proofs that you are following the Holy Spirit along with your personal testimony of hearing the voice of the indwelling Spirit. Amen

Will Christianity be Classified as a Mental Illness? (Video)

Before we attempt to answer the question, “Will Christianity be classified as a mental illness,” it’s important to understand that not everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ is cut from the same cloth or holds to the same doctrine. As classic Christianity drifts to the left of center it looks and acts more like the world of fallen humanity every day. After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.
