References from Wicked-pedia??

I’m not sure why, but some referrers to my blog are coming from Wikipedia. I wonder, what does Wikipedia have that would lead people here to my blog? So I’m just going to presume that it’s the Lord, Who knows what He’s doing, and is perhaps leading folks to my blog to get them saved. At least that’s the only reason I can think of.

Yes, I believe God. I believe He can take a worldly, lying monstrosity like Wikipedia and turn it around to use it to His glory. Oh yes, sure He can, and I have no doubt that He has, and will still! God is over all, in all, and through all! You better believe He can do anything His will demands, even through His powerful puppet Satan and his evil devices! Oh yes, I sure do believe God!

I also believe the Lord likes to show Himself off at times. Any time a person is born again out of drug use, or a broken home, or even if they live a clean life, or are entangled in some kind of trial like divorce or the sin of sodomy; be assured, God is over all and He has the power to break that sin and show forth His glory in a changed life. We’re the stupid fools if we reject God’s love gift of salvation.

To reject Jesus is to damn your eternal soul forever in Hell. Why would you take any chance and risk Hell when this whole time you could run to the cross and receive the Lord Jesus Christ? Yes, I’m preaching to you, Wikipedians!! TODAY is the day of salvation! Come to Christ NOW, before it’s too late for you!

There’s a reference to Wikipedia for you. Now go publish it to the world!

The Victorians had too much time on their hands

There are various superstitions regarding death and burials, many of which come from other eras of time and various beliefs. I am not condemning the people who believe these silly superstitions, I am condemning the superstitions themselves. Why? Because they’re all LIES of the DEVIL. And if you believe such nonsense, you are a fool. That’s what the Bible says.

Following is another blog I ran across. Reading these makes my heart hurt, because some people actually believe them as if they are true. Again, every one is a lie. The Bible is the only truth.

Victorian deathmyths

There is no such thing as bad luck, good luck, or any other such garbage. Luck is a falsehood coined by haters of God’s Word, because they want to think that they can control their own life. God knows all the thoughts and desires of the hearts of men. The heart of man is desperately wicked. So if you believe in any kind of luck, you got it– you’re a FOOL.

When I went to the burial yesterday, it was a torrential downpour. Lightning, hailstones, you name it, we got hit by them all. I can only thank God that nothing worse happened to any of us. No accidents, no injury, only the hand of God protecting each one.

According to this site, rain during a funeral is considered “good luck” because “the soul of the departed is on its way to heaven.” With so many funerals happening on rainy days, you’d think the whole world went to Heaven by now. That is LUDICROUS. May I say, if the soul of the departed wasn’t SAVED by the blood of Jesus Christ, it goes no further than STRAIGHT DOWN TO HELL. AMEN!!! ONLY BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS GO TO HEAVEN, as I’ve said umpteen times. NOBODY ELSE. So if this particular soul was SAVED, it didn’t have to wait till BURIAL to go to Heaven, it went to Heaven AS SOON AS THE FINAL BREATH EXPIRED FROM THE BODY. Face the truth, fools! It’s good for you.

There is much more I can expose and mock in the Name of Jesus (the prophets did it, so can I), but just take a good look around you today and see how much deception and outright sinful thinking prevails. Hardly anything is mentioned, outside of Bible-believing preaching, of the wonderful grace of Jesus and the saving power of His cross. The Devil has been working hard and has billions for subjects, pawns and puppets, and they all will gladly follow him into the Lake of Fire.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for every single one. What blasphemy and hatred they must sustain in their wicked hearts. So sad. Yet– if ANY ONE comes BY FAITH to the Savior to be saved from an eternity in HELL, THEY WILL BE SAVED. God can save the vilest sinner. ARE YOU A VILE SINNER TODAY, AND KNOW IT? Jesus wants to change your life. Please see this page to be born again by faith in Him.

In hiatus

Sorry I haven’t been writing lately. I had my knee surgery and all I can think of is for it to get back to normal movement. Of course that won’t happen for a few months, but it’s one day at a time. Something like this can’t be rushed.

I’m basically back to doing my normal routine, but it’s a workout every time. Just moving my leg certain ways is exhausting. The muscles and tendons need time to heal properly, but they also need to be trained to work with this knee implant. It’s rough some days, and I end up extremely tired. Thank the Lord I learned to sleep on my back.

My first therapy session is on August 8th. Please pray for me…

A fitting sendoff

I went to a friend’s burial today, and it was most dramatic. We met in a covered chapel because of the rain. Nothing happened that was out of the ordinary, but it began to thunderstorm with lightning and golfball-size hail came pouring down on us. It was as if God was mourning for His child who had died. It was an unforgettable experience.

Of course, God could not be mourning when the Bible says that precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints (Psalm 116:15). He welcomes every one of His children into Heaven when the breath leaves the body.

2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV — We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

There is only one way to Heaven, and that is through the Lord Jesus Christ. If you believe that Jesus died on the cross for you, taking your place and paying in full your sin debt, then you will be saved.

God only allows born again Christians into Heaven. All others will go to Hell when they die. See the Salvation Page if you want to know more.

The Power of Music

Who doesn’t like to hear their favorite tune on the radio? Who doesn’t enjoy singing the one hymn they’ve loved since they got saved? I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t love and appreciate music in some way, shape or form. Ever wonder why?

Music is a spiritual medium. By that I mean when we hear music, it stirs us in different ways and it makes us think certain thoughts. If you play a rock song, with electric guitars screeching and drums pounding, your mind immediately thinks of rebellion and all kinds of carnality, and you behave accordingly. If you hear a hymn like “Christ Returneth,” it makes you think of the Rapture and the coming millennial reign of Christ on earth, and you behave accordingly. From rap to island tribal drum beats, music has the tremendous power to move us and to behave according to the music being heard.

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 2 Chronicles 20:21 KJB

God Almighty moves in the power of music. He dwells in our praises. In other words, God loves to hear His people sing and shout, bringing glory unto His Name. He moves mightily when people pray in Jesus’ Name and sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. This is God’s command to us! He WANTS to dwell in our praises, and answer our prayers!

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16 KJB

By the way, the Devil, before he was cast out of Heaven and called Lucifer, was the most powerful cherub, covering the throne of God, and God’s song-leader. He had pipes and tabrets built into his body when he was created (Ezekiel 28:13) and he was the most beautiful and mightiest creation of God. His very movement issued forth song. However, since his downfall because of his great pride, his beautiful music with which he led Heaven’s choirs are now no more than off key, screaming rantings and railings. Don’t let the satanists tell you otherwise. Heaven’s former Choirmaster is doomed to eternal ruin, and he knows it.

One last thought… Music, though powerful in and of itself, cannot get you saved. The CCM crowd (Christian Contemporary Music) has a large following, and the artists themselves like Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith present that one can be born again when they hear their fleshly, carnal music. Before I matured in Christ, I thought this as well, since music moves the senses and puts you on a certain high of sorts, but then I read here in Bro. David Stewart’s website that CCM is really a counterfeit way the Devil thought up to make people believe they’re saved but they’re really not. CCM artists teach the Lordship Salvation heresy, which is what is spiritually killing our churches today. We are born again ONLY by FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST IN HIS DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). See this important article:
