Why Is America Becoming So Immoral?

Psalms 11:7, “For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

Here are a few disturbing things I found on social media recently:

I could show you thousands more similar crazy news stories. Dear reader, I'm sure you've asked yourself in recent times, “What in the world is going on in America?” The Bible tells us the answer. We know that God our Creator is a good, holy and merciful God. We also know that Satan is a malevolent being, an evil spirit committed to kill, steal and destroy everything in his path. John 10:9-10, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” We also know from 2nd Corinthians 4:4 that Satan is “the god of this world.” The earth itself belongs to the Lord (1st Corinthians 10:26). The Devil controls the unsaved world of humanity. Satan is the instigator of wars, prisons and inhumane cruelty.

In our text passage from 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-4 we learn that the Antichrist is referred to as the Man of Sin. According to Daniel 11:37 the Antichrist will likely be a homosexual, who will not have “the desire of women.Any normal healthy man desires women. With these Bible truths laid out it becomes evident that the Man of Sin, for him to be received well, it is necessary for Satan to prepare the masses of this world by demoralizing them. What rational human being could disagree that is it insanity to tell an 11 year old girl that it is okay to be a transsexual? 

Shameful House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is an ungodly woman! The congresswoman wants to ban terms; such as, mother, father, son and daughter from Congress. That is insanity folks. In the weird state of Oregon, residents can now legally change their gender on the birth certificate. This bizarre and frightening time in our nation's history will only lead to our ultimate destruction as a society. It is not a coincidence that an increasing number of men are refusing to get married, joining the MGTOW movement in America. 

Kindly said, U.S. women today have been socially engineered to have ridiculous expectations of men, offering little in return for what they demand in a marriage relationship, and men are tired of the mistreatment. Literally, today's American female is frightening and risky! Men are fed up with the biased, weird and unfair courts. It is clear to me that this has been done intentionally by the Masonic controlled court system in the United States, to deliberately promote fornication rather than a traditional marriage. The following excellent information about secret societies that pull the strings from behind the scenes...

What Secret Societies Control America?

By Jean Warrick from Shelby, North Carolina 

September 4, 2014

Have you ever wondered why, no matter which political party is in power, the wishes of the people seldom seem to be considered or acted upon? And do you wonder why many in both political parties go along with the United Nations’ effort to bring about the surrender of our national sovereignty? Why, after 200 years of being a free and fiercely independent nation, would the U.S. even consider giving over our precious sovereignty to a corrupt anti-American United Nations?

Charlie Daniels, in his DVD documentary “Behold a Pale Horse,” states that “there are forces at work on planet Earth that are completely off the radar of mainstream America. They meet in secret, plan in secret, and work both sides of the street politically, recruiting their disciples early on, from the best and brightest, the mega wealthy and super powerful. They are a well-hidden organization which lurks in the shadows, pulling strings of those they can corrupt with promises of wealth and high political office. This is a ruthless group of movers and shakers who will settle for nothing less than absolute global domination.”

Dr. Stanley Monteith, in his book, “The Brotherhood of Darkness,” stated that he has studied the history of the secret societies for over 50 years and is convinced that it is impossible to grasp what is taking place today without an understanding of the secret societies.

The working of occult societies is not something new in the last few years, but it has grown rapidly since the beginning to the 20th century. The root of philosophy and thought for a New World Order was birthed in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt. He founded the Illuminati on May 1, 1776. The tenets of the Illuminati are summarized in the following six points: (1) abolition of monarchies and all ordered government, (2) abolition of private properties and inheritances, (3) abolition of family life and the institution of marriage, (4) abolition of patriotism and nationalism, (5) communal education of children and (6) abolition of all religion. Within a few years, they recruited a number of prominent men and began to infiltrate the Masonic lodges across Europe. There they could work under a cloak of secrecy protected by blood oaths. Manly P. Hall, a distinguished Masonic philosopher, has stated that Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity, that most Masons are honest, God-fearing men who have no knowledge of the secret inner sanctuary.

Researchers who have studied the secret societies claim that the occult emblem on the back of the dollar bill (the incomplete pyramid capped with a glorified eye and reference to New Secular Order) represents the Illuminati.

Another secret society is The Council on Foreign Relations. Many well-informed people believe that the CFR is responsible for our problems. They note that prominent bankers, industrialists, politicians, media owners, and almost everyone of any importance in the U.S. belongs to the CFR. Six of our last nine presidents have been CFR members, and Barry Goldwater said that the CFR controls both of our political parties. Each of the three major television networks is almost completely dominated by members of the CFR and its spin-off, The Trilateral Commission.

Some people contend that communism is still a threat because the CFR, the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commission, and the Club of Rome are communist front organizations. Another secret society is Skull and Bones (or Bonesmen). For over 165 years, prominent families have sent their sons to Yale University to become Bonesmen. Once they are inducted into the fraternity they are assured of prominent positions in life. Other secret societies are Rhodes Scholars and Knights of Malta.

Among the founding fathers, many were Freemasons. It is shocking that so many of the leaders of this nation have been members of secret societies -F. Roosevelt, Truman, L.B. Johnson, Ford, Jimmy Carter, George Bush, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, J.P. Morgan, David Rockefeller, Supreme Court Justices, as well as Winston Churchill and many in other countries - just to name a few.

When you consider that the common goal of the UN, secret societies, and Communism is to destroy all governments, all religions (particularly Judeo/Christian religion), and rule the world, perhaps that might explain what is going on behind the scenes in this country and the world. You decide. Of course, radical Islam openly declares that their goal is the destruction of Israel, the U.S., all religions except Islam, and global domination. We are engaged in a battle for the hearts and minds of men. We must do our best and recognize that ultimately the battle is the Lord’s.

I couldn't agree more with the preceding information. This disturbing collection of news media outlets across the United States plainly evidences that the news media is controlled by a single source of propaganda, intended to shape public opinion to support the sinister agendas of the New World Order. This is like a creepy episode of The Twilight Zone! There is a war on for your mind America!!! When I was a young person growing up in the 1970's and 1980's you never heard the media openly praise and support homosexuality, but then one day in recent decades the entire media began singing praises, showing full support and promoting the sin of homosexuality in all it's shame and infamy. It is disgusting to every righteous person!

The sin of fornication is epidemic across America. I learned this week that the United States has the highest percentage of single parent homes in the world today, hovering at a shameful 23%. A long-term web visitor sincerely asked me recently if oral intimacy (to put it gently) is a sin. The answer is found in Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. A married man and woman can do anything they want in their own bed. God will judge adulterers and fornicators (Colossians 3:5-7; Romans 1:32). The Devil wants to corrupt America, and he knows that the quickest way to do this is with carnal knowledge outside of marriage.

 Please read these shocking words from retired Canadian Navy Commander, William Guy Carr (1895-1959), which were written just prior to his death in 1959:

According, to Satanism, it is perfectly right, and proper, to encourage moral turpitude in all classes of society, and at all levels of government, by convincing the public that abnormal sexual behaviour is normal; and that the moral code accepted by civilized nations, based on the Commandments of God and teachings of the Holy Scriptures, is old fashioned and introduced by Church and state for selfish purposes. But behind the building up of a WRONG conception of sex, and its purposes as intended by God our Creator, is the Satanic principle that “The best revolutionary is a youth absolutely devoid of morals.” When Lenin stated this as recorded in Pawns in The Game he only confirmed what other Satanists had stated a hundred times previously. It is Satanism, as it is direct from THE TOP, which is responsible for the increase in juvenile delinquency, but those selected by the governments of the world to investigate this problem invariably give every CAUSE other than the right one.” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Satan: Prince Of This World, by Commander William Guy Carr, p. 56.
To read more insightful quotes by Commander William Guy Carr, please read my disturbing article exposing singer “Taylor Swift And Satanism.” Listen to Miss Swift sing “go fu** myself,” in her video titled “betty.” Why aren't parents outraged and demanding for Taylor Swift to be banned from social media? I'll tell you why, because most Americans have been corrupted morally. Adultery is everywhere. Over 15% of 'generation Z' profess to be sodomites. What can this mean for America's future? Incrementally our American society is becoming perverse, disgusting, full of wickedness, neglectful of the needs of the poor and homeless, and traditional marriage is fast becoming a thing of the past. 

Free speech is under blatant attack nowadays. A nation can survive its fools, but not treason! My ministry websites have lost 75% web traffic since 2015 due to censorship. Homosexuals can say anything they want against Christians, no matter how perverse; but if a God-fearing Christian denounces the LGBTQ deathstyle as being evil, you'll be censored from mainstream exposure. Tiny websites are left alone, but big hitters get blocked. No nation is truly free which censors free speech. It's like taking away guns from law-abiding citizens, so only the criminals have guns. When the government allows big tech companies to filter and censor free speech, only the ungodly person has freedom of speech. That sure sounds like Satan's world to me!!!

Our nation's leaders have betrayed us, selling us into the cruel hands of a greedy private banking cartel. Since 1971 the U.S. dollars has lost 81% of its value. America cannot survive this treason! Already 60,000 residents are homeless in Los Angeles, because the average cost of monthly rent is $2,300. Many people cannot afford that! You can blame the central banks for that. The more money they print, the less a dollar is worth, and inflation (a form of taxation) skyrockets! It's like a child's game of Musical Chairs. The banks who print the money make a killing financially with fresh new money, but downstream many Americans are left without a chair when the music stops, and the spending power has depleted (because of inflation). Please watch the preceding video I linked to if you want to understand this in detail.

Wake up Christians! Nearly every church today has been infiltrated by Satan, but they don't realize it. If your church is using a modern Bible version, other than, or in addition to, the inspired KING JAMES BIBLE, Satan has infiltrated your church. Please learn about, The Occultist Roots Behind All Modern Bible Versions. Don't let Satan into your church, because it is God's Church! The new Bible versions have sinfully changed the plan of salvation; from “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3), to one of human effort plus partial faith in Christ (aka, Lordship Salvation). Once Satan infiltrates a church, then the spiritual disease spreads until it kills the church completely. This is why 20,562 Presbyterian ministers in 10,083 churches in March of 2015 voted to accept same-sex marriages in their denomination. GOD RIGHT WITH GOD!!!

This is why America is becoming so immoral. America is being destroyed by design. This is all necessary to empower the Man of Sin when he comes, who will be a Rock star to the world. As we near the end times, more and more each year, you can expect to see the further moral descent into Hell in America and worldwide. In 2021, I've never seen so many young people with tattoos, effeminate males, masculine females, homosexuals, feminists, gender confusion and a hatred of Jesus Christ. This is all the consequence of satanic social engineering through social media (music, internet, radio, magazines, Hollywood, Netflix, video games, et cetera).

Worst of all is that most churches today don't stand for anything, but are mere social clubs. The average pastor just wants to make a quiet living, selling religion. That is why the shameful Harvest Baptist Church of Guam has ostracized me, refusing to even allow me to attend church services since 2014. If they truly loved God and cared about hurting people, they would have reached out to me, as I humbly did to them multiple times in 2017, but was told to “Go elsewhere.” I have been pouring out my soul since 2014 to Harvest, and still in 2021, offering to make peace with them and let bygones be bygones, but they still coldheartedly refuse. 

2nd Timothy 2:13, “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” Like the dear Lord Himself, I cannot deny myself, since I have been faithful in my efforts to make peace with the pastors and people at Harvest Baptist Church of Guam all these many painful 7 years. They just don't want to make peace, which speaks volumes about their lack of spiritual maturity, woeful lack of compassion, and makes me wonder if they are even born-again believers at all. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

My fine non-feathered friend, what should be our response as Christians to these wacky times that we live in? John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.Jesus is bodily risen from the dead. CHRIST IS RISEN!!! What a comforting and beautiful truth. Rejoice oh Christian, knowing that your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life in Heaven (Luke 10:20). Walk with God (James 4:8). Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.Everything is alright in our heavenly Father's house!

The False Gospel Of Pastor John Barnette

Galatians 3:1-3, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”

Salvation is a free gift. Service is what you choose to do with the gift. A popular preacher of our time is Pastor John Barnett. Not surprisingly Barnett has studied at Bob Jones University (BJU), a cesspool of theological error and apostasy in recent decades. I wouldn't give you a dime for BJU today! Sadly, Mr. Barnett preaches another gospel of Lordship Salvation. The following heretical video sermon by Pastor Barnett is titled: 

Kindly said, Pastor Barnett goes horribly astray in his understanding of the Gospel. He is misapplying Bible verses about discipleship with salvation. God gave us the Gospel of John specifically to teach us how to be saved. John 20:21, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” In the Gospel of John we find the word “believe” mentioned 85 times, without any mention of anything else. Nothing else is required for a sinner to be saved than simple childlike faith in the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus' crucified, buried and bodily risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” [emphasis added] —Evangelist John Bunyan
Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Pastor Barnett quotes passages from Matthew, misinterpreting them to apply to salvation. Barnett cherry-picks the word “repent” from Matthew, while totally ignoring the fact that John never mentions repentance one time. Matthew 4:17, “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” The learned Bible student understands that repentance and faith are inseparable and refer to the same act. 

This is why the Apostle Peter said in Act 2:28, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Peter doesn't mention “believing” to be saved. Peter says to repent. But notice what we read in Acts 2:44, “And all that believed were together, and had all things common;” Dr. John R. Rice gets it 100% right:
There are those hyper-dispensationalists who think that John the Baptist preached a different Gospel from Christ when he commanded repentance (Matt. 3:2). But it is the same repentance Jesus commanded in Matthew 4:17, in Luke 13:3 and 5, and the same repentance that Paul preached in Athens that God “now commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30 31). Repentance is not a different plan of salvation from having faith: it is part of the same plan of salvation. Or rather repentance is simply another way of describing or looking at the plan of salvation. One who turns from sin to God has done so by trusting in Jesus Christ. A change of mind toward sin is necessarily involved in saving faith.

Everyone who genuinely repented under the preaching of John the Baptist put his trust in the Saviour John the Baptist preached, and was regenerated. There is no such thing as being “a disciple of John the Baptist” in any honest sense without being a disciple of Jesus, that is, without trusting Christ for salvation. [emphasis added]

I hope you see that Pastor John Barnett is an unsaved man, a false teacher. No one is saved who attacks and perverts the grace of God. The Bible plainly says that salvation is without works; yet Barnett says only disciples go to Heaven. You must choose dear reader who is right, John Barnett or the inspired and infallible Word of God. Please read the following excellent theological quote by Pastor M. R. DeHaan (1891-1965):
"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." DeHaan, M. R. Hebrews. Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117).
It is hard for me to grasp, with the abundance of helpful theological resources today, that any preacher could be so corrupt in his theology as the Lordship Salvation crowd. I mean, the King James Bible is all we need for sound doctrine (2nd Timothy 3:15-17). But even if someone were ignorant of the Bible and wanted some help to understand it, we have excellent resources available today, like never before in history. The Lordship Salvation crowd aren't even in the ballpark theologically! John Barnett is guilty of teaching the same junk theology as Gary Walton, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, John MacArthur, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, Charles Lawson and William Lane Craig. Here are some more helpful quotes differentiating between salvation and service:
"Discipleship is frequently equated with salvation and often erroneously made a condition for becoming a Christian". Pentecost, J. Dwight. Design for Discipleship. Zondervan Publishing House, 1971 (p. 11).

"Certainly discipleship is a most important aspect of our relation to Christ, but it belongs to the sphere of Christian life rather than entrance upon that life... One does not become a disciple in order to become a Christian, but because he has become a Christian by faith in the Savior, it is fitting that he embark upon a life of discipleship". Harrison, Everett F. "Must Christ be Lord to Be Savior?-No." Eternity, September 1959 (p. 14).

"There is no more piously subtle abrogation of the Gospel than to tell a Sinner that he must not only believe in the Savior, but dedicate himself to do God's will, crown the Savior Lord of his life, etc., etc. Obviously, dedication and service are highly desirable, but they are the privilege and the duty of the saved, never a condition of salvation for the unsaved (cf. Romans 12:1, 2)." Unger, Merrill F. God is Waiting to Meet You. Moody Press, 1975 (p. 117, 118).

"People are sometimes led to believe that there is saving value in some public confession of Christ, or profession of a decision. "With the heart man believeth unto righteousness." This is salvation. "With the mouth confession is made unto salvation." This is the voice of the newborn child speaking to and of its father. The only condition on which one may be saved is to believe." Chafer, Lewis Sperry. Salvation. Dunham Publishing Company, 1917 (p. 46).
Those are great quotes, which will help you dear friend to see the difference between salvation versus service. Proof of what I say is found in 1st Corinthians 3:15, “If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” Notice that the unfaithful man in this Bible verse suffers loss of everything, barely escaping the fires of Hell, but he is saved nonetheless. If John Barnett is correct (which he is not), then this man couldn't be saved, because he was not a disciple. 

You see, John Barnett is guilty of doing what all Gospel perverts do, they cherry-pick the Scriptures, taking what they need from various passages to bolster up their strawman argument. But friend, a good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one. The Gospel of John, the Epistle of Romans, the Epistle of Ephesians and the Epistle of Galatians, are abundantly clear that salvation is by grace through faith alone. Romans 4:4-5, “Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” is absolutely NOTHING in the aforementioned books of the Bible that requires following Christ as Lord, forsaking all, exchanging all that you are for all that Christ is, to be saved. If it were so, then God would owe you and me salvation, which cannot be grace.

I plead with you friend to avoid these false teachers from Bob Jones University! They preach another gospel that is not what the King James Bible plainly teaches. Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?The Apostle Paul only wanted to know ONE THING, how did they get saved? How did they become indwelt with the Holy Spirit? Was it by works or by placing their faith in the Gospel when they heard it preached? We are saved simply by believing. That is why so many people miss Heaven, because men make salvation so complicated.

“More people will die and burn in Hell, because they're trusting too much!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a precious quote from the MP3 sermon, “Yea, Yea, And Nay, Nay!

“Everything that's hard and complicated about salvation is God's side of it!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a precious quote from the MP3 sermon, “Yea, Yea, And Nay, Nay!

Disney “Holy Land Experience” Run By Charismatics

Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

One of Walt Disney's main attractions at Disney World is the “Holy Land EXPERIENCE.”

Here we go again with the word “experience,” which is so frequently used by Charismatics. Everyone is being taught to seek an experience nowadays, while they're all headed in their sin and unbelief for the Lake of Fire. The Devil is a beautiful liar! The Walt Disney corporation is so evil, mocking the Lord's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection by turning the grace of God into lasciviousness. Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” The infallible Holy Bible has been reduced to a theme park attraction!

Walt Disney as much as Hollywood is promoting immorality today. In their shows, Disney heavily promotes disobedience to parents, contempt for the Bible, whorish clothing for girls, rock n' roll music, selfishness, idolatry, homosexuality and a host of other sins. To no surprise, the Holy Land EXPERIENCE at Disney World is run by the TRINITY BROADCASTING NETWORK [TBN]. Leave it to a bunch of wacky religious Charismatics to exploit the Lord's crucifixion to make a buck. Adult tickers are $28. The Walt Disney corporation is of the Devil, promoting a Luciferian agenda of moral subversion, fornication and lack of sound family values.

Jesus warned in Luke 16:13 that no man can serve God and mammon. When money is the goal, there will also be sinful compromise, conflict of interest, lack of conviction to stand for truth and against sin, and ultimately it will end in apostasy. Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” America is dying for righteous men who do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with their God. Micah 6:8, “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” 

The greed for money in America today is not doing justly. It is exploitative of sacred things. It is wrong to mock the sacred Word of God by charging people money to experience a Holy Land thrill, as if it were a Six Flags carnival ride. We need men who are pure of heart, who desire to preach the Word of Truth without monetary compensation. Evangelist Ray Comfort's ministry takes in about $3,500,000 a year. The late Evangelist Ravi Zacharias' ministry took in about $25,000,000 each year. Pastor John MacArthur has a net worth of about $14,000,000. When did Christianity become a lucrative business? It is shameful in my humble opinion.

Who Are “The Elect” Of God In The Bible?

Galatians 3:28-29, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."

God has chosen to save all those who choose to be saved. That is what "elect" means. The "elect" refers to the saved, Jews and Gentiles alike. God in the Old Testament chose the nation of Israel to be ambassadors of the Gospel to the world...
Isaiah 45:4, "For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me."
The promise was conditional upon their obedience to God...
Exodus 19:5-6, "Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel."
The Jews rebelled against God, so He divorced Israel...
Jeremiah 3:8, "And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."
God turned to the Gentiles instead to preach the Gospel to the world, to provoke Israel to jealousy. Israel was destroyed in 722 BC (Samaria - northern kingdom), and 586 BC (Judaea - southern kingdom). The PROMISE to Israel was always a line of faith, as we read in Exodus 19:5-6. Also, Deuteronomy chapter 28. At no time did any unsaved Jew ever go to Heaven. The Bible teaches that unsaved Jews are not heirs of the promise...
Romans 2:28-29​,​ "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."
So a biological Jew (ethnically) is NOT a Jew the Bible says. A saved Jew is a true Jew in God's sight! The promise of salvation by faith was given to the Jews first, but was afterwards also extended to the Gentiles (all non Jews)...
Galatians 3:14-16, "That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ."
The church does NOT replace Israel. Even though God divorced the Jews (cut them off), the Bible says that Jews can still obtain the promise BY FAITH. ...
Romans 11:23-24, "And they also​ [THE JEWS]​, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?"
Jews today can still have the blessings God made to them in the Old Testament, but only BY FAITH in Jesus Christ. That same promise is given to any Gentile who believes in Jesus. The Apostle Peter wrote the following to the Jews, which is a quote from the Old Testament, but it 100% also applies to the Gentiles, to all who BELIEVE in Jesus...
1​st ​Pe​ter ​2:7​-10,​ ​"​Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.​"​
The unsaved Jews in the Old Testament were NOT God's children...
Romans 9:8, "That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed."
Only those Jews who HAD FAITH were counted for the seed. The promise was never made to the Jews, but to CHRIST. The promise was to the seed (singular), not to seeds (plural). ...
​​Galatians 3:16, "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ."
God the Father promised Jesus before the world began (Titus 1:2), that anyone who believed in Him would be saved.
​Galatians 3:16, "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." 
That's what the Bible says. God had already made the promise of salvation by faith before the world began. God shared that promise with Abraham, beginning with the Jews, and later to the Gentiles. That great promise is salvation through faith in Christ. 
Acts 10:43, "To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins."
​God has chosen to save all those who choose to be saved! That is what "elect" means. Physical Jews have never been the elect of God, only those who had faith. And the Bible says in Galatians 3:28-29 that whether Jew or Gentile, we are all of the seed and promise of Abraham through faith in Christ. There has always been only one plan of salvation, by faith alone. Pastor Ralph "Yankee" Arnold preached a helpful sermon called: "Understanding The Elect Of God." God has chosen to save all those who choose to be saved! That is what "elect" means.

In The Multitude Of Words There Wanteth Not Sin

Proverbs 10:19, “In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” James 3:5-10, “Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

The Bible teaches that every form of wild beast has been tamed by mankind, but the human tongue CANNOT be tamed. We find the reason why from reading the following passages of Scripture. Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Matthew 12:34, “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future! Amen! The Bible says in the multiple of words (i.e., much speaking) there wanteth not sin. 

Due to the sinful nature of our heart as humans, the more we talk there is an increased likelihood that we will say something we ought not say. God knows that I am as guilty as anyone. That is why I don't talk much in a group. And when I do talk I am careful to avoid talking about people. Pastor Jack Hyles taught me the following:

Great minds talk about ideas. 

Good minds talk about things.

Weak minds talk about people.

We feel better badmouthing people who have hurt us. It is in our nature to be vindictive, even if only verbally. But our words can be just as deadly as murdering someone with a hatchet. In Revelation 12:10b Satan is called “the accuser of the brethren. The Devil doesn't accuse the world, he accuses the saints. When you are a Christian, the whole world is waiting for you to fall. A wicked man can tell a dirty joke in the workplace, and other wicked men will laugh and think nothing of it. But if a Christian man tells a dirty joke in a moment of weakness, his ungodly co-workers will make sure to let everyone in the workplace know what awful thing he said, to tarnish his Christian testimony and bring reproach upon his name. What saith the Scripture? ...

John 15:17-19 “These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

You don't have to be worldly as a Christian to be hated by the world, you just have to be a Christian. Telling the lost world that you are a Christian immediately gets their attention. Romans 1:18-19, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.” Even the vilest of sinners know what a true Christian is supposed to live like. Unsaved people can spot a phony Christian a mile away!

So if you tell anyone that you are a Christian, they will hold you to a higher standard than by which they shamefully live. You may join them at the strip club and live a sinful life in their sight, but they will not respect you. In fact, at some point you will learn that they felt contempt for you for your hypocrisy. They know what they are, being heathens. But they also know what you should be as a Christian. As the Bible says, they hold the truth in unrighteousness. You cannot fool God or man dear friend. If you are a phony as a Christian, the world will see right through you. 

That is why Lot's son-in-laws laughed at him, as one who mocked, when he tried to speak to them concerning spiritual things. Lot was an unfaithful man, and the Bible says in Proverbs 25:19, Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.A broken tooth is very painful. A foot out of joint is very painful. Lot's confidence in a time of trouble was a painful experience for the family, because they didn't take him seriously. Our testimony precedes our words.

We Don't Need To Know Everything People Say About Us

King Solomon teaches an important principle about gossip. Solomon said that we ought not try to know all the scuttlebutt about everyone. Solomon in his wisdom gave people room to criticize him, knowing that they were mere humans. Solomon admits in the following Scripture passage that he too has said bad things about people, which he shouldn't have said, and later regretted. So being an honest man, the king understood that his servants weren't any different than him. We are all human, and we all say things we ought not say sometimes. So we should love each other and not seek to micro-analyze everything around us. In other words, we ought to learn to let people be people, and love them unconditionally. ...

Ecclesiastes 7:17-22, “Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all. Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city. For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.

Solomon says that there is not a just man. We are all sinners! The Bible says every beast of the field has been tamed, but the human tongue cannot be tamed. It is poison. The human tongue is subtle, like a deadly snake. The art of gossip is inherited at birth. Solomon realized that he would be a nervous wreck, and die prematurely from stress, if he micromanaged his kingdom and made a big deal out of every little criticism found among his servants. Solomon literally didn't want to hear it! And that is a Biblical truth. If someone slanders me on the internet, please don't tell me. I love everyone, even the people who criticize me. If I can make something on my ministry websites better, then I'd like to know. I don't like, care nor want to hear about the horrible things people say about me. 

Mark Twain was right: “It takes your enemy and your friend, working together, to hurt you to the heart: the one to slander you and the other to get the news to you.” Now you better understand the meaning of “faithful are the wounds of a friend” (Proverbs 27:6a). Philippians 4:8 commands us as believers to think on things that are honest, lovely, of good report, true and edifying. 

The Devil Is An Accuser And A Liar

That is why I don't watch the daily news daily. It is a bunch of cleverly fabricated propaganda, disinformation and utter lies. Remember, the Devil's most notable characteristic is that of being A LIAR (John 8:44; Revelation 12:9). Jesus warned that the Devil is a thief, who comes only to kill, steal and destroy. Thankfully, Jesus came to give us eternal life (John 10:9-10). If you are saved, you already possess eternal life. The Bible exhorts us to LAY HOLD on it, and make the best of our short time upon the earth, living for Christ (1st Timothy 6:12).

I read a Twitter post by Pastor Joel C. Fugate which is 100% true: “Don't forget that the whole point of the 'main stream media' is to make enough noise that you don't know the truth!” God only knows how many billions of hours, accumulatively, that Americans have foolishly spent thinking and talking about Hillary Clinton's emails. I didn't listen to any of it. The mainstream newsmedia is controlled by Luciferian elite criminals, who know that most people are extremely shallow, and simple minds are easily deceived. Proverbs 14:15, “The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.” 

The only thing you can believe from the newsmedia is the date. Jesus said that the children of darkness are sometimes wiser than the children of light (Luke 16:8). I marvel at the woeful ignorance of millions of saints today concerning the Devil's fake Bible versions, the dangers of the heresy of Lordship Salvation, the sinful denial that we have an infallible King James Bible today, the hoax of manmade Zionism, the blatant criminal fraud of the central banking system, and the naivety of the saints concerning just about everything going on in the world today.

Be Very Careful What You Say Publicly About Others

The most destructive accusations are true ones! Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.Humans can be so cruel. All over the internet there is accusations, slander and scuttlebutt about Christians, uploaded by hateful trolls. There is no pardon nor forgiveness in the eyes of a critic. Once a Christian's sins (or anyone's for that matter) is uploaded to the internet, or even false accusations against someone, it becomes a permanent record against their name. Literally, anybody can say anything about anybody nowadays, and it is assumed to be the truth, and is used against them for the rest of their life. 

What saith the Scripture? 1st Timothy 5:24, “Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after. The only difference between a Christian who is smeared all over the internet, and the ungodly person(s) smearing their name, is that we won't find out about the other person's sins until a later time. The Bible says all men are woeful guilty sinners! The harder you bash people who have sinned, the harsher will be your judgment when you stand before God. Matthew 7:1-3, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?I dare not condemn any sinner, for I feel like I am the biggest sinner I know.

I am not talking about looking the other way to protect criminals, God forbid. I am not saying that we shouldn't speak up about ongoing sin. That is not what the Bible is teaching. 1st Timothy 5:20, “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.” Nor does it mean that you must trust someone who has forfeited that right. It simply means that everyone deserves a second chance. What is in the past is in the past. If someone has messed up, they should be given a chance to exist without constantly having dirt thrown in their face. You've got bitter hateful critics on the internet slinging mud from thirty years ago about people. That is a horrible sin.

If We Judge Ourselves, We Shall Not Be Judged

Preaching against present-day open sin in society is a pastor's duty! Albeit, no one has a right to condemn or harass someone for their past sins, failures and mistakes, if they have been held accountable for them. If someone has done evil, but never made things right with their victims, then that is another story. No one has a right to expect pardon or forgiveness from people they've never tried to make reconciliation with. You can rest assure that God will address the matter. 1st Thessalonians 4:6, “That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.” 

Yet we are promised by God in 1st Corinthians 11:31, “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.Speaking to the saints, if we take care of a difficult matter here on earth, then God won't have to at The Judgment Seat Of Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11; Psalms 6:1). Many believers are in big trouble with the Lord, because in their pride they sinfully refuse to go make things right with their brother or sister in the Lord whom they've defrauded. We should just go ahead and forgive that person, and commit the handling of the matter into God's hands for judgment (Romans 12:19-21). No one ever gets away with anything wrong (Hebrews 4:13; Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; Proverbs 15:3; 24:12).

Beware Of The Heresy Of Religious Zionism

Romans 2:28-29, For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.​

There has been much confusion caused in the churches by theological Zionists, which I am against. One such preacher is Dr. William P. Grady, who has authored about a dozen books, most of which idolize Jews as "The Master Race." It is totally unbiblical. There is only one human race. The Bible teaches that an outward Jew is not a Jew in God's sight. Only in inward Jew, that is, a born-again believer by faith is a Jew in God's sight.

The Bible couldn't be any clearer. Unsaved Jews go to Hell, just like unsaved Gentiles. And saved Gentiles go to Heaven, just like saved Jews. Galatians 3:26-29 plainly teaches that God is no respecter of person, that there is no difference between Jew or Greek, male or female, bond or free, rich or poor; we are all ONE in Jesus Christ our Savior. Since the beginning of human civilization salvation has always been through a line of faith. There never was a time when unsaved Jews were heirs of the promises of God. 

That is why I don't believe in Replacement Theology, because there was never anything to replace. The promises that God made to Old Testament Jews under Moses were conditional upon their obedience (Exodus 19:5-6). Galatians 3:16, “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” Clearly the promises were made to CHRIST, and not to the Jews. So if we are in Christ by faith, then we become heirs of all the promises God made to Abraham and under Moses. Only those who believe in Christ will be partakers of God's blessings as promised. This is basic Bible, but 90% of churches have gone wacky nowadays with Zionism.

Other Zionists to beware of are Jack Chick, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Paul Chappell, Charles Lawson, James Knox, James Modlish, and a bunch more. Pastor J. Vernon McGee got it right about Israel. Israel is no different than any other heathen country today, and should be acknowledged as such. Luke 21:24, “
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” This Bible verse teaches us that Israel today has NO divine promise of protection. Russia could bomb Israel today and it would be Biblical. Jerusalem SHALL be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled (i.e., the Lord's Second Coming after the Tribulation period). During the Tribulation, one-third of Jerusalem will be slaughtered. Revelation 17:18 says Jerusalem is the whore! She will be burned with fire by the Antichrist. So much for Zionism.

By the way, "Zionism" is defined as the effort to restore Jews to their homeland. But God scattered them for a reason, because of their sin. The Jews have still not repented toward God. So God will not bless them until their turn to Jesus Christ (Hosea 3:4-5). Zionism today is the same as Abraham and Sarah taking matters into their own hands. They didn't want to wait for God to give them a son. So Sarah contrived a plot to have Abraham impregnate their servant girl Hagar (which was the sin of adultery). God refused to accept Ishmael as the son of promise. Abraham and Sarah had to wait another 15 years for Isaac to be born. This is what Zionists are doing today, trying to force God's hand of blessing upon a homosexual wicked nation like Israel. Tel Aviv, Israel, is dubbed as: "A Gay Paradise." God will not bless that filth. Modern manmade Israel is as Ishmael, that is, an illegitimate birth.

I do not believe that God is cursing the United States because of anything going on in Israel today. Unbelievably, William P. Grady in his book: "How Satan Turned America Against God," actually claims that God is cursing America because we don't help Israel enough. That is preposterous. Zionists are so brainwashed that they overlook the fact that Americans are guilty of murdering 60,000,000 human beings in the womb since Roe vs. Wade in 1971. That alone is enough to bring God curse upon America! 

America was founded by Freemasons. There was a plot for world government going back to Genesis 11:1-11 at the Tower and City of Babel. To hinder their work, God confounded them, which led to segregation worldwide. The different nations were formed. In these end times God has allowed the Devil to breakdown these lines of racial, national and religious barriers, once again finishing what Satan started at Babel. This is the diabolical New World Order.

America didn't end up in the mess it is today by mere neglect. The Holy Bible was removed from our schools in 1963, which has been the nails in our coffin as a nation. Hollywood has been progressively waxing worse and worse. But the one thing that gives it all away, and convinces me 100% that Satan is behind all of this, are the abundance of occult symbols in everything in the media, and even religion. Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). America has been targeted from day one to be used as a vehicle by which to bring about a New World Order. Here are just a few of thousands of photos I could show you of the Devil's hand in everything today. 

​These are signs of Satan, and they are everywhere today. They were here before we were born, and they'll be here long after we are gone from this world. The conspiracy for a NWO is generational, spanning millennia. What we need to do as Christians is "fear God and keep His commandments" (Ecclesiastes 12:13). This is the whole duty of man the Bible says. The Devil is always trying to imitate the things of God, so he can infiltrate and then corrupt. That is why the Devil has published literally hundreds of English Bible revisions, to confuse everybody. It is a brilliant war strategy of Satan. That is why Lordship Salvation is continually being crept into the churches, along with Wrong Repentance, to imitate the true free grace Gospel to infiltrate and corrupt the churches, making people religious instead of born-again. The Devil is a master deceiver and a liar (John 8:44). We see how easily the serpent tricked Eve (Genesis 3:1-5).

Sin Is Why America Is So Messed Up Today

So having said all that. The Devil has been targeting Americans for generations now with immoral music, immoral Hollywood movies, insane ungodly laws, oppressive government agencies, and relentlessly promoting garbage like abortion the LGBTQ agenda. I am shocked that any sane person would accept this as okay. Yet humans are so easily manipulated and desperately wicked the Bible says (Jeremiah 17:9), that anything is possible (Jeremiah 7:9-10). So all of the mess we see in America today is the consequence of a nation that has gone the way of many nations before, such as the Roman empire. Mankind has never been able to govern himself. That is why God gave us the Holy Bible. Every legitimate court system in this world has some basis in the Old Testament civil laws.

Of the 6 judges who removed the Bible from our public schools, 4 of them were Freemasons. So when we consider the sinful heart of man, and that there is a blatant Satanic conspiracy at work to kill, steal and destroy America; it is obvious why our nation is in the mess it is in. The Devil cannot make anyone sin, but demonic spirits can inspire the sinful hearts of men with lust, greed and hate, stirring those passions to commit horrible sins. So if it weren't for all the Hollywood filth, raunchy music videos aimed at teenagers, secular philosophies, deplorable music and Satanic infiltration of churches today, our world wouldn't be near as bad. During the millennium Satan will be bound in chains in the bottomless pit. What a day that will be. The world will still have human beings in it, who will have survived the Tribulation. It will be a time of peace such as the world has never known. So we are at war today with the Devil (1st Peter 5:8).

According to Ephesians 6:12-18, our 7 spiritual weapons of war as believers are: faith, salvation, prayer, Gospel, Word of God, righteousness and truth. The churches are losing many battles today, because churches are boring compared to entertainment. That is why my Twitter posts get 38 views, and Paul Stanley of KISS gets 12,000 views. Young people today are as worldly as can be. The world has always been a wicked place (1st John 5:19). But with technology, it has allowed mankind to travel further down the road he was already on. There has never been a need to preach the Gospel any greater than today, yet our churches are in shambles, and making money is the primary and in many sad cases, the only real goal.

America is in the mess we're in today because Christians sat back idle and did nothing, while the Devil came in and took control. Every generation must rediscover the truth for itself. That is just human nature. Thankfully, I was taught well by godly men such as Pastor Jack Hyles. The mantle of sound doctrine was handed to me, and other preacher boys, and I am handing the mantle off to the next generation. 2nd Timothy 2:2, “
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

There are so many aspects as to why America is a mess today, but the major underlying problem is a departure from faith in the Word of God. For example: The reason why there are so many homeless people, and there are rusting cities all throughout America's Midwest, is because of the fraudulent central banking system (funny money as Dr. Ron Paul calls it), and the sending of tens of millions of American jobs to foreign soil. I have been watching hundreds of YouTube videos about where to live or not live. Nick Johnson and The World According To Briggs are two of my favorite YouTube channels. But the reason why the central banks exist is because of the greed of evil people, and the wickedness of our entrusted leaders who betrayed that trust (e.g., President Woodrow Wilson).

I am shocked how many ghost towns exist today across America. Lima, Ohio was once a thriving town, but today is a deserted dump of poverty and drugs, because of the evils of deindustrialization. Our elected leaders did this to us and we let them! Since 1913 the criminal Federal Reserve Act has given wealthy private families complete control over our money supply, taking it away from congress prior to that. They literally decide what a dollar is worth. That is why Americans have to work 30 to 40 years, slaving to pay off an insane mortgage loan. The first 20 years of payment goes just for THE LOAN from the banks. They are evil criminals. But why did this happen?

It is because of immoral people who didn't care enough to fight against evil, and this all goes back to what I said about a nation having faith in God's Word. This is all about the Gospel. Born-again Christians who grow in Christ's likeness make much better citizens than unsaved people who walk in the flesh. That is why America is so corrupt today. We've got a bunch of selfish lost sinners in charge. We've got a bunch of complacent Christians hiding in their closed off churches, and preachers are mere salaried employees nowadays, not called men of God who would rather starve to death than not preach the truth! 

The churches are all about entertainment today. If there is any preaching at all, preachers dare not preach about conspiracies, feminism, the Federal Reserve, abortion or things that offend people. Pastor Grayson Fritts was forced out of his job as a decorated police officer for telling the truth about Leviticus 20:13. Pastor Steven Anderson was kicked off YouTube for preaching against controversial subjects like feminism, LGBTQ, and even Modalism. We've allowed the heathen world to put a leash on preachers today!

The quick answer to why America is so messed up is a departure from faith in the infallibility of the inspired King James Bible. These modern wishy-washy Bibles do major damage, turning people off to the Bible. Who wants a source of truth that comes in 39 different flavors? The Bible publishing craze tells young people that nothing is absolute. We've lost our conviction as a nation. Tough preachers are under vicious attack today. Never before have pastors been so discouraged. I read not too long ago that thousands of pastors quit every year. I wish they would all quit, and let true men of God stand behind our nation's pulpits. We need righteous preachers again, who have a burning passion for THE TRUTH, and a genuine LOVE for all people!

Jack Chick used to claim that 40 tornadoes destroyed the Midwest because America is not helping Israel enough. I am so sick of that kind of religious superstition. Yet, Mr. Chick showed zero compassion for lost Arabs who need Christ. That is very wrong. Jews are no more special than Gentiles. America is in the mess we're in because of our own love for sin, indifference, cowardice to stand up against the government, failure to heed the multiple warnings from our founding fathers, and a departure from faith (obedience) to the inspired Word of God. Thank you for reading. I love you with Christ's love, whoever you may be!

The Bible Encourages Us To Invest In Heavenly Riches

Matthew 6:16-21, “Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Someone asked me today about investing in Bitcoin. My honest answer is that I don't understand it enough to really give good advice on the matter. But I did find this article.

I have always been leery of investing in anything that I cannot see, touch, eat, physically possess or live in. I can live in a home or rent it to someone. I can eat food in a restaurant business. These are tangible investments. I could be wrong, but to me Bitcoin is similar to the stock market, where you have tens of billions of dollars being invested into something that only exists on paper (or in the case of Bitcoin, a computer file). Here's some more information and a warning about Bitcoin...

My opinion is that believers are wise to invest in heavenly eternal rewards (Matthew 6:19-20). This world is full of greedy thieves, liars and cheats. In our text Scripture passage, Jesus encourages us to lay up treasures in Heaven, knowing that thieves cannot steal them, rust cannot corrupt them, moths cannot eat holes in them, and we have a sure investment. We can earn rewards in Heaven by helping spread the truth of the Gospel, which will lead others to Christ (Daniel 12:3). Also, by doing good deeds (Matthew 5:16). We can invest in eternity by laboring in prayer (Colossians 4:12). And by giving to the poor (Proverb 19:17). Even giving a cup of water in a disciple's name will be rewarded by the Lord (Matthew 10:42). Everything that we do as Christians to further the Kingdom of God, help others, honor God and sacrifice for Jesus Christ will be rewarded. Every keystroke of my keyboard and click of my mouse will be rewarded in eternity by God (1st Corinthians 3:8-9). That is why I work so hard day and night. It is 4 am now.

I personally do not think it is a sin to invest in Bitcoin. Again, I have limited knowledge, so I am cautious in my humble opinion. I think Las Vegas style casino gambling is unethical for various reasons. I don't think Bitcoin is a crapshoot, but I am not too familiar with it. I have no desire to learn about it either, I am busy investing in eternity. I think something that is unethical (not the honorable thing to do) is a sin. I think our greedy American society is a sin. You cannot eat at a restaurant anymore without them forcing you to pay them 10%, because they feel like you owe them for waiting on you. It is unethical. They have no regard for customers anymore in the United States, they just take advantage of people. I deplore forced gratuity.

The people who own the casinos don't do any labor. It is filthy lucre. The House always wins! Casinos provide illicit entertainment for thrill seekers, who blindly gamble away money. In many cases people lose their homes, cars and end up in court. The book of Proverbs has much to say about wealth obtained shadily. I think lotteries are unethical, which is gambling. I think anyone or anything that preys upon addicts, covetous people, thrill seekers and hurting people in desperation for riches, is immoral. I hate casinos! They are cesspools of immorality, substance abuse, homosexuals and all manner of wickedness.

Having said that, investing in the stock market is a calculated move. That is quite different than merely throwing some dice on a roulette table. There are many different ways to invest in stocks. At one time between 1995 and 2000, I was heavily involved in the stock market. I made 130 call option trades in one year. I paid Charles Schwab about $6,000 in commissions just in 1999. I made $140,000 and then lost all of it! But I was a nervous wreck, losing sleep when my trades declined, and felt euphoric when my positions rose. It was an emotional rollercoaster. In the year 2000 when George W. Bush became U.S. President, the ".com" years of "irrational exuberance" (as Fed chairman Alan Greenspan called it) all came to a crashing end. I ended up losing $50,000 in the stock market. I was working midnight shift between 1993 to 2000 and hated my life. In 2000 I changed to an afternoon shift. I had forgotten how good life could be. Working the graveyard shift was one of the worst decisions I ever made! It adversely affected me physically, mentally and spiritually. I wasn't investing to get rich, I just wanted a way out of Sodom and Gomorrah at the U.S. Postal Service where I worked in Chicago at O-Hare Airport.

I decided to get out of the stock market for good in 2000. I have not bought a stock or call option since. By God's grace I began my website ministry in 2002, choosing to spend the rest of my life laying up treasures in Heaven. I have never regretted that decision. Thousands of people who come to Jesus as their personal Savior over the years because of this ministry, to God alone by the credit, praise and glory. I am just some clay, but God is my dear Potter Whom I serve and love. I don't regret my 5 years of investing between 1995 and 2000, because it taught me the value of a dollar, the vanity of earthly riches that disappear, and the great peace and joy of knowing that I have treasures laid up beyond the blue skies. It is a matter of living by faith. I have faith that God will keep His promises in His Word. 2nd Peter 1:4, “
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

I hope you don't mind that I shared my philosophy of wealth a bit with you. I love to be helpful. Having said all that, I think it is acceptable with God to invest in things, just so long as it is not immoral (booze, casinos, abortion, LGBTQ, et cetera). Also, it is important that no one suffer as a result of our gain. The state lotteries are evil. In many cases the states promise to use the money for public schools, but then spend the money elsewhere and the children suffer. The states lie and steal the money. I think that is evil. Donald Trump is a brilliant and admirable business man. I love the guy and miss him as U.S. President. However, Pastor Jack Hyles is right that Mr. Trump's success is not "good success." Donald Trump made his billions from strip clubs, gambling casinos and houses of sin. If you'd like to hear the sermon by Dr. Hyles, it is called: "I Don't Want To Be A Success."

There is nothing more repulsive than a money hungry believer. Psalm 62:10, “
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.” My former landlord was always thinking about money, money, money. He disgusted me. No matter what went on, he saw money! Get the hell away from me! I detest money and those who relish in it. I love to give, without expecting anything in return. Very few believers are like that. When you truly love God, money means nothing to you anymore. The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is all about money. They live for it! They relish in it! That is why I have been denied permission to even attend church services since 2014, because Harvest sees me as a threat to their money, because I am conte0versial in my King James Bible only beliefs. My website ministry is well known worldwide and makes them uncomfortable. 

My only fault is that I loved them enough to TELL THE TRUTH. Like the Apostle Paul, I am counted as their enemy at Harvest Baptist Church of Guam because I told them THE TRUTH (Galatians 4:16). I did the right thing! I was the only one who cared enough to agree with God (Romans 3:4). Lordship Salvation is not the Gospel of free grace. The Westcott and Hort Bible revisions are all corrupted by the Devil, not inspired by God. The requirement to repent and turn away from one's sins to be saved is nowhere taught in the King James Bible. Yet, for exposing these untruths I have been blacklisted, shunned, avoided, ignored and cruelly ostracized by Harvest Baptist Church of Guam for the past 7 years!

It is my prayer that God would avenge me for their cruelty. I pray that God would avenge me of their wickedness, for them siding with error instead of truth. I pray that God would make Harvest's pastors sorry, regretful and wishing they had never been born. I want divine justice! Help oh Lord, for the godly man ceaseth! I am laying up treasures in Heaven, while Harvest Baptist Church of Guam continue to dig their own grave. This Bible, that Bible. This Gospel, that gospel. Nothing really matters at Harvest except their paychecks. Follow the money! I will be avenged someday, God promises it. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

These Bob Jones liars and deceivers will attempt to defend themselves by saying that salvation is only by grace. Yet I can take you to the Catholic Vatican and show you where they say salvation is only by God's grace. Harvest's pastors have much blood on their hands, including mine. They have hurt an innocent man, who in fact told them THE TRUTH, but they rejected that truth. Pastors' Marty Herron and Gary Walton have my blood on their hands. These men in the clergy don't deserve any honor in any church! They do not teach the Word aright, but cast stumbling blocks before the people, by confusing sanctification with justification.

There is no greater way to lay up treasures in Heaven than to go soulwinning. But to do that we must also contend for the faith, exposing the enemies of soulwinning that hinder men from coming to THE TRUTH of the Gospel to be saved. Misunderstood repentance is an enemy of soulwinning. Lordship Salvation is an enemy of soulwinning. False Bibles are an enemy of soulwinning. Sadly, the Bob Jones crowd today are guilty of all three of these evils, working against the cause of Christ to get men saved! For exposing these evils I have been banned from attending church. I haven't had a church family in 7 years, because of Marty Herron and Gary Walton, and the Harvest Baptist Church of Guam. Bob Jones University is cult headquarters, leading the way into apostasy! They have no treasures in Heaven!!!

Dr. John R. Rice Refutes Lordship Salvation

Galatians 3:1-2, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”

I was recently reading one of Dr. John R. Rice's books titled: “Dr. Rice: Here Are More Questions,” in which he beautifully refutes the heresy of Lordship Salvation. The following is a question submitted to Dr. John R. Rice concerning professed Christians who live in sin:

Dr. John R. Rice

Dr. Rice states:
We have young folks in our church who are supposed to be saved and who giggle and whisper all during church services and who say they 'just hate' church and 'can't stand' to listen to our pastor preach. They attend movies and worldly amusements. I feel that as pastors and Sunday school teachers we do not warn those enough who think they are saved but are not born again. Shouldn't we plead with them to go to the alter again?”

SOURCE: Dr. Rice... Here Are More Questions, by John R. Rice, pg. 76, Sword of the Lord Publishers; ISBN: 0-87398-157-X
The following is Dr. Rice's response to the preceding question...
“Being saved, born again, is one thing; learning to live a consecrated Christian life is an entirely different thing. There is not any way you can judge whether people are born again except as you take their testimony that they have put their trust in Jesus Christ and depended on Him for salvation. Some of these young people indeed may not have been taught to trust in Christ. If they were looking for "an experience," a certain kind of feeling or emotion, then they may have been misled. But if they honestly turned their hearts to Christ and depended on Him for salvation, they were saved.

Now a Christian should live a consecrated Christian life but that does not automatically follow. People who are saved will find, like Paul, "When I would do good, evil is present with me . . . . So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin" (Romans 7:21,25).

Every saved person still has the old carnal nature and often-times has the same kind of temptation he had before. Some people who have truly been born again have a desperate fight to quit tobacco, and some have never seemed to get the victory over that or other bad habits. Some Christians have never learned to trust the Lord enough to bring tithes and offerings, and some have never learned to win souls. When a baby is born, he is not born grown. Being born is one thing; growing is another thing entirely.

So the thing to do is to take for granted that people are saved when they trust Christ for salvation. Then one should set out to teach them to read the Bible daily, to learn to pray about their daily needs, to confess their sins and failures and grow in grace day by day. It is as foolish to expect young Christians to be good Christians by themselves as it is to expect a child, born in the family, to automatically be a great credit to the family without any rearing—whether they are spiritual babes or physical babes. I assure you that unless people are taught to be consecrated Christians, taught to read the Bible and pray, they are not likely to be good Christians, even if they are truly born again.”

SOURCE: Dr. Rice... Here Are More Questions, by John R. Rice, pg. 76,77, Sword of the Lord Publishers; ISBN: 0-87398-157-X.
Dr. Rice is 100% correct: "Being saved, born again, is one thing; learning to live a consecrated Christian life is an entirely different thing." A changed life comes from growing in grace as a result of genuine repentance; and not as a part of saving-faith itself. Salvation is receiving; NOT giving. There are many ministers today, such as John MacArthur, who falsely teach that one's salvation is CONDITIONAL upon the life we live. MacArthur states:
“Submission to the will of God, to Christ’s lordship, and to the guiding of the Spirit is an essential, not an optional, part of saving faith.” (EPHESIANS, p. 249)

“Salvation isn't the result of an intellectual exercise. It comes from a life lived in obedience and service to Christ as revealed in the Scripture; it's the fruit of actions, not intentions. There's no room for passive spectators: words without actions are empty and futile...The life we live, not the words we speak, determines our eternal destiny.” (Hard to Believe, p. 93)
The Word of God calls John MacArthur a liar in Romans 4:5, "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Could the Bible be any plainer? The Scriptures speak plainly that we are saved by Jesus' righteousness (Romans 10:3-4; 2nd Corinthians 5:21); and not any self-righteousness of our own (Isaiah 64:6; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5). We are sinners; Jesus is the Savior.

John R. Rice is correct: "So the thing to do is to take for granted that people are saved when they trust Christ for salvation." Proponents of the Lordship Salvation heresy expect new believers to live a consecrated Christian life from the get-go of salvation. This is not reasonable nor Biblical. New believers need to be taught and discipled.

Dr. Rice states in his excellent book, Dr. Rice... Here is My Question...
“When you get saved, you get saved not because you deserve it, but because you simply let God save you and because you confess your own poor sinful state and your inability to save yourself.”

SOURCE: Dr. Rice... Here is My Question, by Dr. John R. Rice, pg. 304; 1962, Sword of the Lord Publishers; ISBN: 0-87398-158-8
I couldn't agree more. This is what the Bible teaches. Dr. Rice also states in his Gospel tract, What Must I Do To Be Saved:
“The change in your heart, sinner, is God's part and you may be sure He will attend to that. Your part is to simply believe in Him. Whatever else is necessary in your eternal salvation, the Lord attends to when you trust in Him, or believe in Him.”

SOURCE: What Must I DO To Be Saved, by Dr. John R. Rice
Amen! Dr. Rice is correct. Who are we to judge whether or not a person is sincere. There's a self-righteous group today in our churches, who demand a changed-life as a prerequisite for salvation. This is unbiblical, a heresy, and a perversion of the simple Gospel of Christ Jesus. The thing to do is to take for granted that people are saved when they simply trust Jesus Christ for salvation.
