Making Sense Out of Another Tragedy

The nation was shocked again with another mass shooting this time in Las Vegas, Nevada. Already blame is given to mental illness. gun control, ISIS, and the list goes on and on, but no one looks at the real problem. It’s like the whole world and most of Christianity ignores the problem completely. Yes, it is a deep-rooted problem that goes back many years, perhaps as far back as the 1950’s. Until we recognize the problem we will never be able to solve it. Everyone will admit that what a man thinks is what he will eventually do. This was a truth taught by the Bible and echoed by Jesus Christ and His Apostles. Proverbs says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” (Proverbs 23:7). And clearly a man always thinks what he has been taught.

Well since the 1950’s we have been teaching man what we want him to think. Not just a few learned men, but all men, women and children to learn while they are still in the cradle. To learn from the experts of our age through many different mediums that follow us every moment of every day. Constantly learning from elementary school to the world-wide web to the movies we watch to the music we listen to, to the article you are reading now. We are constantly learning from social media to the news media. From High School to the College professor we are being taught what the social engineers want us to learn. One only needs to look at the division in this country to see the affect that learning has had on the young people teaching them the liberal mindset verses the older generation, which is more conservative. The real war coming is the war of information given to the population that controls their thinking and eventually their action.

Christianity is caught in the quagmire of competing forces. On one side is the New World Order and its liberal mindset and on the other side is the old world trying to maintain its conservative values while trying to keep up with the information coming at them at the speed of light through social media, YouTube, and the world-wide web. Then there are groups like ISIS trying to hang on to what they see as their conservative values of hate and dissemination. If we have eyes to see, we can see what is coming. The New World Order is destined to win the day. They will win the day by pitting one conservative group against another. They will win the day by raising up a liberal fringe element to make war upon the conservatives and their religious values. They will win the day because they have already won most all the young people and the older generation will eventually die out.

They will win the day because it has been prophesized in Holy Scripture. There will come a time when every conservative person who hangs onto their religious values will become an enemy of the State, or the New World Order. Personally, I would love to say that there is time to turn back the clock, but I am afraid it is too late. The dye has already been cast. The hearts and minds of the young people have already been won. However, not all is lost. We as Christians still have opportunity to strengthen what remains and as we do, it will only cause the chasm to grower deeper. So, what can we do now to strengthen what remains?

To strengthen what remains will be difficult, but not impossible. First, we must jettison any physical fight mentality. We cannot wage war the way the world does, but we can fight back by waging spiritual warfare. If you have not noticed Satan has gotten much stronger in our day. Probably because he knows that his time is short. We must stand strong emotionally and psychologically by allowing God to counsel all our difficulties through His anointed Word and spiritual counselors. If you fail at this point you will not be made strong. Strong enough to withstand the Day. Secondly, we must not follow the world in its endless learning from everything that is being thrown at us from the world. I rarely scroll more than few seconds on Facebook, hardly ever watch a YouTube video, very discrete on movies I watch or music that I listen to, and rarely go beyond the headlines on the news media. But even doing all that will not make us strong. It will not strengthen what remains. There are many things we can do. We can fellowship with mature Christians either face to face or by reading their inspired articles, books, or listening to their podcast on the radio. We can search the Scripture to see if those things are so. We can pray long and mediate upon those things that the Lord would have us to think about. And when we search the world-wide web we must be very careful not assuming that all that we read is the truth.

Finally, it’s imperative that we help our children. If we don’t they will be overcome by the world. I firmly recommend that every Christian family remove their children from public school. Either find a private Christian school or learn how to teach them yourself at home. And if you are unwilling to do that then you must talk to your children every day about what they are learning in school. They must hear, what does God say. The peer pressure that they receive from the school to conform to the world and its standards will be most difficult especially for a young mind. We must strengthen what remains or all will be lost. Let me leave you with these words from God’s Holy Word. “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). Amen

Fiery Trials in Our Day

Well, we survived the eclipse, but are we sure that our websites will survive all the additional attacks by the onslaught of new hackers. As the Apostle Peter wrote about the many fiery trials that would inflict the Christians, the modern-day hackers may not have been in his mind. Yet, the hacker’s motives for harming the children of God by destroying their websites and the messages that they believe are from God would no doubt be the same. The devil and his minions have tried to silence God’s children from the beginning through many and various trials and persecutions. It’s no different in our day. The enemy simply does not want God’s message propagated in the world to save fallen humanity. We first experienced it in our churches; we now experience it on the world wide web.

After retiring from my pulpit ministry, I took up the pen and later the keyboard to allow God’s message to go well beyond the walls of the local church. Six years ago, I was but a novice when it came to computers and websites, but after 5.2 million visitors on my website that was all about to change. I started to feel the intense heat from those who didn’t want to hear the truth, that was clearly demonstrated by the many cyber-attacks daily attempting to bring my websites down. It was then I received a calling to help not only myself, but the Christian community to stand against this evil. To not allow it to cripple our online ministry. To start our own hosting company with extra security measures not typically offered at other hosting companies and the ones that do, their prices are beyond our budget.

After months of discussion and planning with my oldest son, who at one time owned his own ISP (Internet Service Provider), we decided to launch our own hosting company with additional security measures designed to stop the hackers in their tracks. After much prayer and discussion, we realized that stopping the hacker would not be enough for our fledgling churches and online ministries, we also needed to improve their search engine ranking with Google. This ranking should be important to our ministry because it will allow more people to find our websites, thus giving them an opportunity to hear your messages about your church, ministry or business. So, we have also put a lot of effort into performance utilizing webpage and image optimization for enhanced page load times. We also give you the best consultation for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) best practices. Furthermore, we have seen how important it is to have a website that is both creative and functional designing some of the best website templates available at a reduced fee.

It took a few bumps in the road to solidify our need for this new ministry. It was three years ago that I had my website hacked as a customer of one of the largest hosting companies in the world. This was my first wakeup call that my messages were not well received by the enemy and that even this large well-respected hosting company could not stop the attack. I was told that my site was on a server with hundreds of other sites and apparently one of those sites got hacked making it easier to hack other websites on the server. (This common problem for hosting companies is not possible on Christian Host because each site is isolated on the server making it impossible for the attack to spread.) So, the following three years I bounced from one hosting provider to another experiencing down times, damaged files, horrible support, and one time having my website completely hosed, not to mention the very poor performance of my website, which dropped my ranking with Google significantly. It was time to find our new calling.

This finally became a dream come true and a wonderful blessing from the Lord. Not only do I have the assurance that my websites are secure, I also have the assurance that I have the best performance and ranking possible to spread God’s message to a dying world. Let me say we all have a ministry in these last days to get the truth out to as many people as possible. If you have never considered starting a website allow us to give you that opportunity. In conclusion, let me share some statistics. I have discovered that social media alone will never accomplish the task of getting God’s message out to fallen humanity. Having over 5,000 followers on Facebook, on my best days I might get 200 likes (usually a photo of my wife), but with my website I easily get 1,600 unique visitors daily (or 49,600 unique visitors per month) and that number is growing. Friends, if you have a heart for the lost, or want to grow your Ministry or your business or just want a blog then allow us to help. I hope that you can see, that for us, this is both a business and a ministry to help God’s children. May God bless our efforts. Please visit our Hosting Company by clicking here.

Are You Prepared for the World’s Greatest Disaster?

The world’s greatest disaster looms on the horizon like a grizzly bear awakening from his hibernation. It’s certain, it’s going to happen, we need to be ready. The time is short. Everything is pointing in that direction. The weather is getting more extreme producing more powerful and violent storms, earthquakes are increasing in number and severity, global epidemics are more plausible, the aggressiveness between competing ideologies is turning violent and the mad man in the East continues to threaten the United States homeland by launching a nuclear strike. The instability in the world today beckons for us to prepare. But how should we prepare? Preparing physically with the best laid plans for survival simply will not be enough to stand firm. It’s essential that we prepare not only physically, but emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. To do so will not only help us to survive a global disaster, but it will also help us to overcome the great deception, coming on the heels of a major disaster.

The Immortal Message of Easter

On Easter morn, we are drawn back to the message of the Cross that all-encompassing will of God. We are catapulted beyond the simple historical message of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection to the infinite heights of God’s will for our life in Christ Jesus. If we only see the historical event steeped in tradition then we have missed the message. In the Apostle Paul’s farewell message to the Ephesian elders he declared, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:27). And the starting place in this wonderful journey in understanding the whole will of God is by following the admonition of Christ to pick up our cross and follow Him. The Bible says, “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23). To pick up the cross means death. It simply cannot mean anything else. It is a conscious decision to follow Christ in His death by dying to self. As we enter the dark night of our soul we discover that everything of the old sin nature must die. Every vestige of pride must be nailed to the cross. Every glimmer of self-will must die with Christ. Through faith in Christ our death to self becomes a reality. Step by step we are able to put off the old life. Continue reading The Immortal Message of Easter

What’s Impeding Your Faith?

The Bible says, “Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8b).” The answer is not a lot for most in the later days will allow many things to impede their faith. Although there will be a faithful remnant, I am sure that their faith will be mocked by the world. It will seem inconsistent with reason and against all the established norms of a pagan world. Unlike the faithless who had long given up their faith, they will continue to cry out day and night for God to vindicate them by righteously judging their oppressors. They will continue to cry out asking God to fulfill all His promises, especially the one that does not allow them to be tempted beyond what they can handle (See I Corinthians 10:13). Over the course of time they have learned well the things that impede their faith, being careful to resist them at every point. So, what are these things that impede our faith?
