"I am certainly doing my very best... to expose the darkness by God's awesome light, and that those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, are seeing and are hearing, praise God! ...I am here to proclaim the truth as best as I can, and expose the fruitless deeds of darkness." "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful to even mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the Light becomes visible, for it is Light that makes everything visible" (Ephesians 5:11-14)

Pew-warming and the Satanistic side

Today I have a topic that a lot of my regular readers are probably looking forward to -- at least I know one who is. However, I now know firsthand once again, that it is a touchy and hypersensitive topic. So much so, that even APPROACHING it in a spiritual sense in the real world, with someone who is afflicted with principalities of Rejection, Hatred, Envy and Bitterness, ...possibly more...merely APPROACHING the subject is like putting salt on a canker sore.

Ouch.

I know this, as I said above, firsthand again today. I had an argument with someone I know. I won't say who, or anything bad about them, because I do not want the Enemy to get a foothold in me, but it left me scarred for the rest of the day. I got slimed by the devil, even though I had done nothing wrong. Again, I can't and won't go into the specific circumstances. I WILL go into the vague specifics. This person, was extremely mad at their ex-spouse. I had simply relayed a brief message that this person (the ex-spouse) had called, and suddenly was attacked verbally by someone who used to be close to me. This person ...I cannot fully blame but there is no excuse, there is a spiritual side, where I was literally spat at by a demon, possibly a principality, I do not know at this time, saying "You're interfering! You're interfering!" (Of COURSE I've been interfering, I've been doing spiritual warfare against just such a thing in this person, and STILL getting insight from God about it. But I wasn't interfering in the way this person thought--I was simply delivering a message) Anyway, this person is full of Self...So much so, that this person pointed out that she wanted her ex-spouse's family to "drop dead and go to Hell". This same person told me a month ago "I'm really not that bad. I may swear a bit and yell, but I'm ok, really. God still loves me."

Woe,

Woe,

Woe.

Yes God loves this person. He loves all. But this God is still a Holy God, and unable to tolerate sin. Must we cheapen Christ's death? This person is so deceived I cannot reach, it will have to be the hand of God to literally break through the barriers of the heart, and maybe, MAYBE, be able to get through. This person is so consumed by hate there is literally, really no room for the Love of Jesus. So consumed by Envy and the need for Revenge against the former spouse, who is not a christian, (not that it matters--Vengeance is MINE says The Lord)..this person mars him/herself and I do claim, has denied Christ in his/her unbelief, I feel so strongly about it. This person who claims "I can call my ex spouse an enemy and have my revenge and still have my part in Heaven too"...is sadly mistaken. Jesus commands us (and me, and you, and everyone) to LOVE our enemies. To pray for those who persecute us. (I am talking in a civil-social manner, not country-war type.)

So what do I tell this person? ... I don't know if I can tell them anything. This person is so caught up in their own things, there is no time to put ear to perspective. Also, this person doesn't value what I say. But What I do say is that they should check their heart. Does it line up with what Christ teaches? No, of course not. I guess the only thing to do is continue to pray. And intercede. And watch out for the slime. Anyone got a proton pack from Ghostbusters?

This next article is brought to us by Kathi.

Kathi's words:

To say that I was taken aback is putting it mildly... So I thought I would share my answer with you ... This is not meant to offend anyone or take away from the terrible events of this week but it is what was in my heart when I thought about this question. The Question Was... Where is my outrage?? Believe me, I'm outraged, at this cowardly attack on the United States of America. The unity that has swept across our nation is nothing more than what I expected Americans to do. BUT, I can't help but wonder.... Where was America's outrage about the thousands of babies aborted everyday? Where was Americas outrage Monday night as thousands of little children & babies in America went to bed hungry? Where was Americas outrage Sunday night as Vietnam Vets, & other homeless Americans went to sleep under bridges? Where was Americas outrage Saturday night as elderly people wondered how they were going to continue to live without the medicines they need & can't afford? Where was Americas outrage Friday night as yet another Mother, Sister, Daughter lost her life to spousal abuse? Yes I'm outraged that madmen hijacked airplanes and flew them into buildings that were American Symbols killing thousands of innocent people. BUT... I'm more outraged by what goes on in this country on a daily basis while most Americans go merrily about their own business. Never giving a second thought to the fact that we have plenty to be outraged about right here, every day. It's getting close to that time of year where as Americans our hardened hearts soften, as we throw that 50 cents into the Salvation Army Kettle,or buy a Five dollar gift for one of those kids on the Angel tree. Or give away our old coats, clothes, donate blood, take our elderly neighbor a hot meal.... the list goes on of the things we only think about for a few weeks every year. And then feel like we've done what we can, and go right back to thinking of only ourselves. Outraged... You bet I am. There's plenty to be outraged about...

The Lord is coming soon... but how soon?

This column is probably going to tick most christians off, which I'm glad of, because it needs to be discussed. Before I start I just want to mention that I am NOT going to sit here and back up my views on this. It takes up way too much of my time and too much webspace that could be used for Far Side ads. So if you want my back up explanations, go get Tim LaHaye's book "Revelation Unveiled", at your local bookstore or christian bookstore, or at his website, http://www.timlahaye.com

I look around at many places I go to, and I think about the soon coming endtime events foretold in the Bible, specifically Revelation, but also Isaiah and Ezekiel. I think about the great worldwide earthquake that will someday hit as the wrath of the Lamb (Christ) and I wonder, just what will this world look like then? I think about our already terrorized city of New York, and I wonder when the Empire State Building, or the Statue of Liberty will be next? Actually, I'm surprised the SoL WASN'T taken out in last week's attacks. Grateful, but after learning it was a attack of this magnitude, surprised. Anyway, I'm getting off the subject,....as I was saying, I wonder about the End Times events...

I wonder about the "days wages for a loaf of bread" and "wars and rumors of wars"...clearly we are having high inflation, economies failing, rumor of war between now not only Afghanistan, but possibly some other Arab states, such as Iraq again. I wonder about imagery of a locust with a horse head and a scorpions tail. I wonder about the sun being dimmed by a third...by stars falling out of the sky and hitting the earth. I wonder how much MORE this current conflict is going to WIDEN by Islamic Jihad (holy war). Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, all could send more waves of bombers at us, or at our troops. But all these are just the beginnings of birth pangs.

BIRTH PANGS!?!? It's going to get WORSE?? ..... yikes.\par Matthew 24 (Revised standard edition) v6-10. "And you will hear of rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: all this is but the beginnings of the sufferings. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, {means trouble} {not the Great Tribulation} and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another."

We're already being put to death, whether by each other or terrorists. Heck, in Ireland, Catholics and Protestants are already killing each other. I think it's only a matter of time before that starts happening in America, where different doctrines of "christianity" (though they themselves, though they call themselves christians, are really not) will start physically attacking and even killing each other. We're already betraying each other. We're already killing innocent children each and every day, in a convenience called "Choice". We already hate one another. Sure the WTC tragedy has temporarily brought people together, but I already see it falling apart in my city.

Speaking of birth pangs, I hear a lot of "Oh, Christ is coming this year...oh, ok, well he's coming next year for SURE!...ok, well, next year definetly....rats...." ....I'm real sick of it. The prophecies aren't fulfilled enough to allow Christ to rapture us out yet (again, read the book) but we are close. Mainly the immediate things to happen are Ezekiel 38, where 3 nations rise up to utterly destroy Israel -- and fail from the Hand of God. I predict, that this will occur in 2006 or 2007, according to a code verse in The Bible Code. This is of course, my opinion, not fact. The other thing immediately following is a 7 year peace treaty with Israel, sponsored by the Antichrist. Antichrist himself has not been revealed yet, but I have no doubt he is alive and well.

So to you Christians,.... who are sitting in your seats, warming those pews, singing the songs, then going back home, eating the Sunday meal, and forgetting anything you just heard at church, be aware that a day is coming soon when Christ will return for his church, and you might just be left behind. The dead will rise first, then those who remain will be caught up, meeting our Lord in the air. Those who remain will endure the 7 year tribulation period forecast in Revelation.

So I just want to try to convince you now...to try and spare you some pain, to wake up, before the bus takes off without you. I don't believe Christ is going to rapture those who are sleeping...then again I'm not Christ, so I don't know for sure. I sure wouldn't want to test him to find out though!

Word from the Lord, in the aftermath of the attack on America:

  My name is Marcia.  This prophetic word was given to me on 9/12/01 (one day after the tragic terrorist attack on the WTC, and the Pentagon).  While seeking the Lord in prayer regarding this tragedy, I told Him I wanted to concentrate on Him alone ... to concentrate on hearing His voice, that I might know what it is that's on His heart, and within just minutes, He spoke this to me.  I believe this message is just one of perhaps many areas (but definitely a very major one), that God no longer will allow us, His children, to turn away from.  He revealed to me that we, His Church, must no longer depend on what it is we think, what it is we know, or how we perceive things to be, but rather, we must discover what it is He thinks, what it is He knows, what it is He sees and desires, in all areas of our walk with Him, through revelation of His word, given by His Holy Spirit.  He strongly spoke to my heart that His children must learn to "see as He sees".  He also caused me to know that "His heart is broken too", but not only over the tragedy of what took place in our nation, and that it is His desire that we come to know His very heartbeat.  Here is the word He gave me:

  Evil as it is, what's happened to multitudes in yesterdays attack on America, and evil as it is, those ones who did this horrible act, America must repent.  For, do you not know you are also evil, and do such things as well.  Does your heart cry out in the same anger, and seek such justice to be done at the loss of life of the multitudes of babies destroyed daily at the hands of those who claim to stand for life.  Will you continue to stand by and do nothing?  Open your eyes America, for that which you hate, do you not do the same yourselves?  You have watched many of your own die in this tragic, evil happening, just as I watch many of My own innocent helpless ones die daily at the hands of the very nation that decries such evil.  Do you not understand, that just as you have experienced invasion unto death, likewise, so are these, My creation, invaded upon unto death.   Can you not perceive that just as you consider those who have done this evil to this nation deserve to be punished, likewise, I look upon this nation for the evil it has done in the killing of these ones I have created, and see that this too needs to end in punishment.  I call this nation to repent, while there is yet time, for if you will not turn from the evils brought on by the wickedness of your own hearts, I will come in judgement.  Heed my words, repent, and turn your hearts toward Me.  I, the Lord have spoken!

To the Angel of the church in Sardis

I was inspired by the Lord to read Revelation 3, and to type it here, to the church in America. God is TELLING us, we are dead and asleep. It is TIME TO WAKE UP! The following scripture is from Revelation 3:1-6 King James Version

"And to the angel of the church in Sardis write : 'The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.

"I know your works; you have the name of being alive, and you are dead. Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God. Remember then what you have received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you. Yet you still have a few names in Sardis, people who have not soiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy. He who conquers shall be clad thus in white garments, and I will not blot his name out of the book of life; I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."

I do not claim to be a preacher, a prophet, or a great seer. I simply am telling you that this is a message I believe God wants me to share with the church tonight. Please note, that this book is written to the churches,...let me spell that out to those who don't get it -- God is talking to HIS PEOPLE, saved christians, not just fallen men. So when God says "and I will not blot his name out of the book of life" that means just that, but that also, your name CAN be blotted out of the book of life if you are living, (as many christians in the USA are now) as a christian, in daily habitual sin. This does not mean you are going to Hell. this means God is about to pronounce judgement on you if you do not repent.

Now for 2 Chronicles 7:14

"If my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves, and pray and seek my Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

Again, God is talking to HIS people, in this instance originally the Israeli's. Not the Philistines. Not the Romans, HIS PEOPLE. Church it is time to wake up. Read the above. Pray to the Lord, repent of your sins, and for your nation.

Someone I want to hate.

Someone I want to hate of course is Osama Bin Laden. I want to personally pulverize his face, tear his limbs from his body, partially draw and partially quarter him, yet keep him alive in torment and suffering. You see, Islam says those who die for Allah will receive 36 virgins and lots of other good stuff. I want Osama to suffer. I want him to live a long time. I want him to know the pain he has caused me and countless other Americans.

But I am not supposed to hate. I am supposed to love. I don't even know anyone who was IN New York, personally. I am simply really riled by the fact that this fanatic so far has gotten away with what he did, and is so smug about it. It ruffles my feathers in a way no one has ever before.

Before this attack, I would have to say I was un-American. I have had many arguments with my friend, J*., about the government and our differing statements and beliefs. NOW however, I would classify myself as a born-again American. I am excitedly patriotic, and would give my life for my country in a heartbeat, would the services take me again. I was discharged under general discharge in 1992 for "inability to adapt". It was good for them at the time, and just as well for me, as I was still a young punk then.

Again, I am not supposed to hate. My life with Jesus demands I love him, love the sinner, hate the sin. ... I have to say that in all honesty that ruffles my feathers too. As I stated above, I WANT to hate Osama, but I can't. I want to punish him, and I can't, that will be determined by others, and I doubt I have the real intestinal fortitude -- GUTS -- to do it if I was placed face to face with him. Besides that he'd probably gun me down with that machine gun he has in the photo's, but I digress.

So what do I do? Do I love him, and simply forgive him, say "That's ok, let him be", and let him keep on killing us Americans, Afghanistans, Israeli's and now as it appears, Soviet, err- excuse me, Russian peoples? By no means!!! I HAVE decided I will try to love him as God loves us all, and pray for him. Yes, I even forgive him for the blindness Satan has deluded him and all his followers with. I have to. God commands it. "Unless you forgive others, I will not forgive you" Says God. Don't belive me? Look it up for yourself. But he must be brought to justice. God can forgive him of his sins, but on Earth he still has to pay the penalty for what he has done. We all do (present and plural tense indicated here -- I repeat --) .. we ALL do.

My point to this longwinded edition is that we all have a choice to forgive, love, hate, create and destroy. Not necessarily all those at once, or in that order. Osama has chosen in his fanaticism to hate and destroy as much as he can. I do not want us as Americans to become the same as he is. I hope you will choose JUSTICE not VENGEANCE for Osama Bin Laden, and his networks. Pray for their souls, that GOD'S JUSTICE (not our personal war , seen as a holy war) ultimately be done. Pray that their eyes be opened to God's truth, and let the lies of Islam be revealed. And most of all, pray for the Peace that passes All Understanding.

--Matt

Conflict vs Holy War, Sterotypes and plain old Hatred.

Wow, a lot to go over since several days have gone by.

Ok, we're technically at war, although we haven't yet determined WHICH country we're going to war with.. =P ...George W, I love ya, but make a decision, it's driving me nuts. What I am fearful of is that if we go in and start attacking, while we're off at war, they're going to get us back with NUCLEAR weapons. I'll remind you, and inform those who don't know, that there are still 100 suitcase nuclear bombs that Russia is missing! They are rumored to be in the hands of the enemy, whether that means Osama Bin Laden or not, I don't know, I'm just greatful they've not been used.

The other thing about it, is that no matter how we do it, it's going to be seen by the Jihad members as an attack by "The Great Satan". That's what they refer to us as, a spiritual reference of course, to the differences of our thoughts. The USA of course, was founded upon the Truth of Christianity, whereas Islam was founded on a lie and idolatry. Prove me wrong, do some research. http://www.chick.com/information/religions/islam/

I'm very concerned about the present state of America. On the one hand, I've seen a great coming together of hands together as our family should be, and lots of cries of USA USA. On the other hand, I've been hearing a lot about immediate threats and backlash against Arab-American people in America, and even Indian people being mistaken for Arabic, based on the color of their skin, being immediately branded as terrorists. Are we back in the days of Jim Crow? I should think NOT! Caution is one thing, prejudice is quite another.
