Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion (Video)

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction.

Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction. Once again, we have become like little children seeking to learn the first principles of our faith. Instead of following the Way, new converts are congratulated for accepting Christ and then given a few do’s and don’ts, particularly about Church membership, but never shown the Way. They may even impress upon the new believers their need to speak calmly, not to lose their temper, and not curse. On the outside, they learn well how to act like Christians as they become experts at hiding their true intentions, their anger, their frustration, and even their lack of faith. They think that they are following the Way, but they are still in darkness. As a result, the Church keeps dividing with every new doctrine re-discovered or highlighted by self-righteous man. They say, “Come over here for I have found the way,” and the church is divided once again. It’s rather tragic as everyone learns how to express his own small opinion, allowing the world’s humanistic ways to flood the Church.

On the other hand, we must rediscover the Way or all will be lost. Fallen humanity rejoices as the dividing lines between all the different religions and faiths begin to fade. They glory in the fact that secular humanism is the thread that holds them all together as the true Way becomes lost in the annals of Christian history. Secular humanism has allowed mankind to develop his own way that fits neatly into any world religion and the social fabric of the entire world. This new way teaches mankind how he can overcome all of his emotional and psychological problems while winking at the god of his choice. When disaster strikes the church leaders are not summoned to help the distressed, rather they turn to the professional secular counselors in each country, contrary to their religious preference, to render counsel. The new world religion has already arrived showing people the false way and they wonder why their lives don’t improve. They wonder why they still need to struggle with depression. They wonder why they still struggle with anxiety and loneliness. They wonder quietly among their selves where’s the power to change. However, God’s beloved children, His faithful remnant, will not only rediscover the Way but they will walk in it, to the glory of God.

To discover the Way, we must leave the darkness and come fully into the light believing that God will give us everything we need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3-4). Some say that this is a leap of faith because the world and everything in the world teaches the opposite. From the cradle to the grave they teach you that you must solve your own problems. This is made possible through their higher schools of learning, their great thinkers, scientist, doctors, and professionals of psychiatry. Yet, it is God the Creator of all that exists who promises to give His children everything they need for life and godliness. God created you and knows exactly what you need, so that information must come from Him alone. Christ wants to show us a new and living Way. In fact, He is the Way. He is the great power that holds everything together. This same creative power will make us into a new creation so that Christ can come and dwell in us through the Holy Spirit. As we learn how to pray and meditate to the Father through Christ then He brings the Bible to life showing us that He alone has the answers to depression and every other emotional and psychological problem. He begins His work inside us showing us how to control our thoughts that lead to action. Step by step we are transformed into the perfect image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

So, if Christ is in us giving us the light of His glory then why would we run back to the world allowing them to teach us how to live life? Here is the problem, most who call upon the Name of Christ attempt to live in both worlds at the same time. They seek to live in the light while living in the darkness. In so doing they are led into greater confusion. I am not asking you to accept Christ, I am asking you to follow Him, for He is the Way. If you truly believe that Christ has made you into a new creation, where old things have passed away; and you also believe that He will give you everything you need for life and godliness, then there is only one thing left. We must die to self so that we can follow Jesus Christ in the Way. We learn very quickly that we can’t, but He can. We must allow Christ to do His work through us. That’s why true believers always give God all the glory. The Spiritual gifts are His gifts working through us casting out evil, raising the sick, and doing great wonders and miracles. The power of our witness is Jesus Christ working through us to breakdown walls and overcome empires. The more we die to self, the more Christ works through us so powerfully. If we don’t attempt to do it in our own power, then He will do it through us, to the glory of His Father in heaven.

The Bible says, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:17). If God had sent His beloved Son to condemn the world then no one could be saved. On the other hand, Jesus Christ does judge the world leaving them room for repentance. Let’s be clear that Christ loves the entire world desiring to save everyone from every race, nationality, and religious upbringing. He will judge but not condemn and neither should we. His mission is to save the entire world by showing them the Way, the only Way to the Father. To show them the only Way to a new bountiful life in Christ. Although the world is in the deepest chasm of darkness, Christ still wants to work through us showing people the Way, the only Way to eternal life. Now here is the power that will enlighten the heart even in the deadest sinner. Christ died for us on the Cross to pay the penalty for our sins, then on the third day He arose from the grave and is now seated in heaven at the right hand of the Father. If we die with Him, by dying to self, then we will live with Christ in the newness of life. The simple Gospel will show us the Way, but it takes faith to receive it.

Prepare Now for the Coming Persecution (Video)

If you believe that God will allow you to escape the coming persecution, then why did Jesus Christ bother telling us how we should prepare? So, contrary to what many think, we still need to prepare, because it can come unexpectedly with little warning. It will be so quick that most will be caught off guard. If we are not prepared by utilizing the clear instructions from His Word then it will be a most grievous occasion, sending most into full panic mode, horrifying fear and lasting depression. So, let’s look at the anointed words of Christ in the Bible … After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.

Prepare Now for the Coming Persecution

If you believe that God will allow you to escape the coming persecution, then why did Jesus Christ bother telling us how we should prepare? So, contrary to what many think, we still need to prepare, because it can come unexpectedly with little warning. It will be so quick that most will be caught off guard. If we are not prepared by utilizing the clear instructions from His Word then it will be a most grievous occasion, sending most into full panic mode, horrifying fear and lasting depression. So, let’s look at the anointed words of Christ in the Bible and hide them deep within our hearts. Instructions to be used when the time comes. The current direction of this country and the world makes persecution very probable against the true believers in Christ. Or the faithful remnant, who hold to the exclusiveness of Christianity, the belief in the transformation in Christ, and commitment to sharing the Gospel to all people in every nation. The religious type beast or the false prophet will require that everyone worship the one in power and adhere to the doctrines of the established church. Failure to do so will result in immediate persecution of all true believers in Christ. I just wrote last week about the Catholic Pope and the Islamic faith signing a document to form a new world order of peace among all world religions, claiming that God is the same in each religion.

The extent of this persecution will be beyond what most of us can imagine. Especially this will be true when we realize that our own brother, either Christian or biological, will betray us to the authorities to the point of actually having us put to death (See Matthew 10:21). You might ask how can this happen? How could they be so brainwashed that they believe that we are the problem, that our interpretation of Scripture is false, and that we are wrong to stand against a peace-loving world that accepts everyone? In their eyes, we are beyond horrible for not accepting that all religions worship the same god. That we need to be persecuted to death because we have rejected the homosexual, the transgender, and the women’s choice to have an abortion. Don’t we see this today in the liberal Christian community who are already attacking our beliefs? Perhaps what’s even more disheartening is that members of our own family will rebel against us for our beliefs. They simply will not understand why we can’t accept the contemporary way of looking at things. We will seem old fashion in our thinking, but what’s most alarming is that they too are willing to have their own parents and children put to death (See Matthew 10:21). Jesus Christ continues by saying that we will be hated by all men, because of our relationship with Him.

The Bible says, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:22). Well, that is exactly why we are writing this article to help you to know how to endure to the end. Let’s be clear right now we can never stand firm in our own strength. Even with the principles that I share with you today, it will not help unless you allow Christ to do it, to work in and through you. We must remember that Christ is the one that is really being persecuted. The Apostle Paul understood this well. The Bible says, “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ” (II Corinthians 1:5). As true believers in Christ whenever we suffer for the cause of Christ, by advancing His gospel, or doing the work of the ministry, or simply standing for the truth, then in reality, Christ is also suffering with us. He continues to suffer with His beloved Church. That’s good to remember, the next time we come against one of His beloved children. It’s important to understand this truth if we want to stand firm against the persecution. In so doing, then we will allow Christ to take charge, by leading us in both our behavior and conversation with our persecutors. We must believe that He is standing with us in the midst of our worst persecution. We must believe that Christ will not abandon us.

It is clear from Scripture that persecution will come against the faithful remnant from a false religion. They can even claim to be the true faith in Christ. The Bible says, “But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the counsels, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles” (Matthew 10:18). Although this Holy Scripture was applicable to the early Christians it is still applicable for today and especially for the end time persecution. As Church history proves, nearly every persecution was done at the hands of the church and other world religions, namely Islam. It’s absolutely essential that we know well what we believe in from our own study of the Holy Scriptures as we were led by the indwelling Spirit. We must allow God to write His Words upon our hearts especially in areas that will come under attack by the false or lukewarm church. They will attack the exclusiveness of Christianity (See John 14:6). They will attack the Biblical doctrine of our transformation in Christ (See II Corinthians 5:17). They will attack many of the commands of God, especially the holy matrimony between one man and one woman; and, the sanctity of life in the womb of the mother. They will attack our belief in the Great Commission to preach the gospel to the entire world even if their people follow a false religion (See Matthew 28:19-20).

So, how do we prepare for the persecution? The Bible says, “But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak” (Matthew 10:19). Wow! So, we don’t think through what we are going to say or how we are going to say it? Correct. There is a reason for that, but first let me reiterate that God’s Holy Word must be in our hearts. We must know what we believe and believe what we know. For the indwelling Spirit will pull upon that information along with new words spoken directly by Him. After forty years in the ministry from reading countless books and studying in-depth the Holy Scriptures while struggling with the original languages and the opinion of many learned men, I have concluded that without Christ opening my mind every day through the Holy Spirit then I know nothing, nor can I speak His truth. So, no matter how much we think we know, we must wait upon Christ to speak through us, as I do currently in my morning prayers, that I have posted online for the past three years. This will be absolutely essential as we face our persecutors.

We have noticed how most people react to confrontation or impending danger. It appears that the adrenaline level is increased exponentially as the danger approaches. Often times without thinking, hostile words and actions are called upon more as an automatic response to defend one’s character or one’s self from any kind of attack. As Christians, this should not be so, who believe that Jesus Christ is present with us. Especially so, if we are defending the Gospel or our Christian character. The Bible says, “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you” (Matthew 10:20). So, let me encourage you to calm down and wait upon the Lord before you say one word back to your persecutors. Clear your mind of your automatic response. Trust Christ to give you the correct verbal response believing that He will speak through you. Dear children, Jesus Christ will speak through you when you are brought before your persecutors. There are many examples throughout Church history where Christians have brought their persecutors to tears of repentance because they could not withstand their words, words actually spoken by Christ through them. There is great power in His words. Amen

Lying, Deception, and Distraction in the Last Days (Video)

Almost everyone is doing it, that is lying and wearing their face of deceit, but for God’s beloved children it should not be so. It’s as though we have turned back the clock nearly two thousand years, when Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ, “What is truth?” (See John 18:38) Once again, the world has sunk into the depth of immorality not only where they were blind to the truth, but also where few actually spoke the truth. Everything was lying deception and wearing the mask of deceit. Deceitfulness ruled the day. The world has gone full circle now … After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.
