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.

The good news is we are no longer held in bondage to the old life. Old sins are forgiven by the precious blood of the Lamb. As Christ hung on the Cross of Calvary all our sins, past, present and future have been laid on Him removing that eternal barrier between us and a holy God. “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:12). Through faith in Christ all our sins are forgiven and its power broken. Satan was soundly defeated at the Cross and no longer has power over those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Only by following Christ in His death on the Cross can this power of sin and the devil be broken forever in the life of the believer. Don’t let another Easter pass you by without making a conscious decision to pick up your cross daily and follow Him. Don’t fear death to self, because on the other side there is real life in Christ. Dying to self and putting off the old life is only the first part of the journey. We must continue to understand the full will of God.

Christians from around the world will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, because without it we are still trapped in our sin, in bondage to the old life, and resting under the power of Satan. On that glorious Easter morn as the rock was rolled back and Christ rose from the dead a new and living way was opened to all those who would now put their faith in Him. How magnificent is this new life in Christ is beyond our finite comprehension? For those who have journeyed deep into the new life in Christ will confirm that every day becomes more glorious. Unfortunately, many have not journeyed much further than the door and have rested contently on the milk of God’s Word. As mere infants, they delight in retelling the same old stories over and over again believing somehow that they alone will bring forth spiritual fruit and a deeper life in Christ. They pass over the commands of God as mere suggestions or only relevant for some future dispensation. They pass over the gifts of the Spirit as if they only appeared in the first century. Tragically many Christians never really experience the new life in Christ thus celebrating the resurrection as mere tradition reenacting its historical event.

He is risen! Christ has risen from the dead! In faith, we follow Christ in His resurrection putting off the old life by dying to self and putting on the new life by becoming obedient to His commands. Let’s be clear commands are not works. We have been saved by faith and all our good works will not get us one inch closer to heaven or a deeper life in Christ. On the other hand, the commands of God teach us how to live this new life in Him. Through our faith in Christ we have already been made into a new creation. The old has gone, behold all things are new. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). When we put off the old life then we are empty and ready for the Master’s use. Self and tradition cannot put on the new life, but only Christ through His wonderful commands demonstrating the will of God in us. Do you want to grow spiritually from one degree of glory to another? Do you want that deeper life in Christ? Then be filled with the Holy Spirit of God and allow Him to lead you step by step to become obedient to the whole counsel of God through His holy commands written on your heart. As you celebrate the resurrection this Easter morn let me encourage you to leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity. How marvelous to be in Christ growing into a deeper relationship with Him. Thank you Lord for your death and resurrection all praise honor and glory to your Name. Thank you Lord for our new life in you. Praise God.

Bring Trump Down to Your Own Peril

We would have to be blind not to see the liberal establishment aggressively trying to bring down President Donald Trump. This is much more than just fault finding and nipping at his heals. It is much more than just spreading lies through the dishonest media or marching in the streets. They have changed the narrative. By doing so they are once again making themselves look like the good guys in the eyes of the people. They do this by calling themselves the “resistance” as if they are resisting an evil power, but they forget to point out that they are the ones who have kept the black community in bondage to a life of drugs, gangs, and the crumbling inner city. They forget to mention that they are the ones who first sought to sterilize the negro or at least kill their unborn children by the millions to keep them in check and under control. They have changed the narrative by calling the conservative party the party of hate, yet they are the ones who have encouraged their people to resist law enforcement while they vandalize and destroy public property. They are the ones who have caught conservatives and beat them publicly. Unlike the previous administration while most conservatives remained relatively quiet the liberal establishment has attempted to block nearly everything our current President is attempting to accomplish by pointing out real and unreal negative points to all the people.

With the election of Donald Trump the liberal establishment’s whole way of life and the acceptance of immorality has been put on end. For years now they have taught the people to believe that true freedom and happiness only comes from the acceptance of immorality, where everyone can do their own thing. They have spurned the law of God by making new laws to justify their bad behavior. Since the election of Donald Trump globalization and the acceptance of all religions as equal has been rendered a serious blow. The Muslim invasion has been slowed while the Christian churches of America are trying to regain their voice. The struggles are great, because it moves beyond the physical realm to the spiritual. There is tremendous strength behind this movement to bring down Donald Trump. It’s more than money. It’s even more than political clout. It reaches to the depths of evil and wickedness to pull off its sinister plan. It appears to have the power of Satan himself orchestrating the movement standing against God’s divine law for all of humanity.

If God allows them to pull down Donald Trump and institute one of their minions it will be the greatest tragedy to strike the planet since the great flood. God simply will not allow this country to slip deeper into immorality leading other countries around the world to do the same. To put colored rainbow lights on the White House will only be the beginning of what they have planned. I can assure you that Russia and the other kings of the East want nothing to do with it and will be used by Almighty God to reign down death and destruction on the West. It will not be the first time that God has used a pagan power, in today’s world, like North Korea, China, Iran, or even Russia, to bring forth His judgement upon a nation who is teaching its immorality to the world. This death and destruction on the West will be to such a degree that people will hide in caves asking that the rocks to fall on them and hide them from the wrath of the Lamb (See Revelation 6:16). What a horrible day that will be for those who live long enough to see it. Of course, the liberal establishment will never openly admit that they caused the catastrophe, for I am sure they will blame it on the Christian community and Donald Trump’s far right agenda or his inability to get along with other nations.

At this point we still have a choice to allow the current leadership of this country to turn back the title wave of gross immorality or to remain quiet and allow Trump’s administration to be disassembled one piece at a time by the liberal establishment. To do the latter will spell certain doom for the world. We need to be more than just Bible thumpers as perceived by the eyes of the world. We need to live out life without their immorality. We need to openly demonstrate the new life in Christ (See II Corinthians 5:17). If we really believe that Christ has given us a new life in Him, where old things have passed away then how can we cry out to the world that we don’t know how to get rid of our depression, anxiety, loneliness, and many other emotion or psychological problems? How can we say that we need their counsel and psychiatric drugs when God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3)? If we really believe that Christ has given us a new life in Him then how can we say that we accept abortion, the killing of unborn children? How can we accept the new bathroom laws for the transgender? How can we accept gay marriage and be willing to make them cakes, attend their weddings, or even officiate them? How can we continue to watch their movies that teach globalization, the one world religion, and the acceptance of gross immorality?

If we as Christians do not work tirelessly at curbing the liberal agenda, then I can assure you that even if Donald Trump is successful and is not brought down by the liberal establishment then the judgment of God will still come to the West and specifically to this country in the very near future. We have been passive long enough. We have remained quiet long enough. It is time for us to take back our title of who we are from the liberal establishment. We are the “Resistance!” I will say it again, “We are the Resistance!” We are the ones who are fighting the evil empire. We are the ones who are fighting the liberal news media. We are the ones who are fighting the lie. Remember, dear friends, our weapons are not of this world. We are fighting a spiritual battle. We are fighting the powers of darkness that stands behind the liberal establishment and all her minions.

So how do we fight? Not by screaming, yelling, and with angry words. Not by violent protest or threats against the liberal establishment. Our greatest weapons are prayer, peaceful protest, and demonstrating the new life in Christ. Our demonstration of the new life should be so powerful that people will say, “What makes you so different?” You have such peace and joy all the time even in the midst of great trials and tribulations. Your prayers seem to storm the gates of heaven. When you march, we feel the love that you have for everyone. Only then can we honestly share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the glory of God. And yes, we can support Donald Trump as the President of the United States by emphasizing the positive. We can support him through our prayers that God will continue to humble him seeking God’s counsel daily. Time is short my dear friends. We either turn back the tide of gross immorality or we face certain judgment from the hand of God.

Finishing the Race

Where is the joy and excitement we once had when we first came to know the Lord Jesus Christ? For many, they feel its been lost forever and whatever joy or excitement they do experience, it’s like a meteor lighting up the night sky for one joyous moment and then disappearing. So how do we keep that joy and excitement alive, especially in our older age when we are fraught with illnesses, physical limitations and unusual maladies? How do we keep it alive when we are facing various trials and tribulations? The simple answer, which begs for an explanation, is get back in the race. Unfortunately, many well many Christians are still sitting on the sidelines allowing Christianity to become little more than a good habit with poor results. So how do we leave this quagmire of constant learning without meaningful application; how do we return to the joy of our salvation where every day is a new day in the Lord filled with unbelievable excitement? Get back in the race. The Bible says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Discerning the Dark Forces of Evil

As deception is falling upon this world are you being deceived or do you have discernment? The extent of the deception in the last days is mind boggling. How strong is this deception? The Bible says, “And it was given unto him (the coming Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (the Beast), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8). To me it is mind boggling that the entire world can be so deceived. Well, the reason is also given. The entire world was deceived “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (See II Thessalonians 2:10). Indeed, the love of the truth will open our spiritual eyes and give us needed discernment for the days in which we live, which we will discuss in detail.

The Apostasy Exposed

At the last Trumpet, the coming of Christ, and the last Judgment many tears will be shed over the words plainly spoken by the Lord, I never knew you, away from me you evildoers! (See Matthew 7:23) In the twinkling of an eye the apostasy will be exposed, the veil will be removed, and millions will realize that they had fallen away. What a horrible day that will be. In the Spirit I can hear the cries of anguish and the heart stopping screams of those who proclaim their innocence. Even their good works could not save them.  How could they not be “known” by the Lord? How could they be so blind to the truth? Yet, we now live in a day where millions are unwilling to see their true condition. They have somehow tricked their mind into believing they are known by the Lord, but have become a part of the great apostasy. To shed light on the apostasy we need to take you back to the beginning. We need to go back to a time before social programs, public education, mental health professionals, and a proliferation of drugs engineered to solve every emotional and psychological problem known to man. We need to return to a simple time when Jesus Christ was all things to all men. He came to a hurting people ravaged by a host of wickedness casting people into deep emotional and psychological problems causing bouts of erratic behavior, physical mayhem, and in extreme cases demonic possession. He came to a people hungry not only for bread but for the bread of life as they stumbled aimlessly behind their religious leaders. Their blind guides where leading them into a pit of greater confusion causing them to put their trust in hollow and deceptive philosophies, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world. (See Colossians 2:8) On the other hand, Jesus Christ came proclaiming that they should put their trust in Him alone to lead them into a new everlasting life free from the heavy weight of their captivity.
