I do hope there a some amongst you who have watched this movie…… if not a rare worthwhile watch.
Briefly the movie is about: In Pittsburgh, accomplished pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu uncovers the truth about brain damage in football players who suffer repeated concussions in the course of normal play.
His deep faith in God motivates his conviction to stand for truth, which sets him against the world, its power, its manipulations and wicked men who will go to all lengths to discourage and discredit him… one man against the world.
This sure is food for thought and motivated me to write this post, as I found myself moved…….
When you become a true believer, you are on God’s side…and world will hate you for His name.
Hear ye me: When you become a follower of a religion, which is a division of beliefs according to groups of people even nations and organised to remain from generations to generations. In Christianity broadly in particular the divisions become further about denominations, also church doctrines, church creeds and families.
If, and when at any time in this ‘journey of many differing beliefs’ God saves you, something remarkable happens….. you become centred on God and his Word, the holy bible…. and then you realise that most things you have ‘heard’ and are spoken of in the world are against the word of God and suddenly find yourself in a situation of choice… very much like the disciples Jesus had chosen…. against the world, which follows and worships its father satan, also called the devil……
We need to realise in truth that satan created religions to divide mankind of the world, which he has done very successfully. Knowing Jesus had come and created His followers of the word, Satan started using first the jews, then the gentiles to go against God. Satan set what God calls ‘tares’ amongst the wheat, the lookalike followers of Jesus to cause deceit and confusion. This led to Paul writing almost 2/3rds of the new testament. Thereafter satan created his church the catholic church to direct the religious belief and in the dark ages that followed the church many millions where killed to enforce this religion. In todays days it re-emerged into the fore as the muslim religion attempts to enforce itself and many many are being killed some likely as you read this. The 2 are actually not much different in their essences, This not being sufficient, satan is (as allowed by God) establishing himself as the ruler of christianity today, coming in the likeness Jesus with all the devices in his wicked disposal, and with much success as all churches are falling one by one and the ‘abomination of desolation’ Daniel spoke of is now all around us ……. all perfectly foretold in Gods word, the bible.
What becomes very clear to me and others like me, when you become a true believer and follow Jesus and trust his word as authority, there will come many many many especially from the most unexpected direction, the christians themselves, and their words become the vilest and condemning and largely the most unbelieving of truth……….astounding but true,.
God loving words are for those few in the world as we read here in Joh 15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it has hated you.
Jos_1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for Jehovah your God is with you in all places where you go
I can surely attest to this over the many past years and God willing, then will many more harsher to come… I stand for God and His word in truth, and the world is set against it, so be it, ….…I will embrace my suffering with joy and thanksgiving, Amen.
With much love and patience and may some hear and see. Minister Karl
This is a very important one, to understand how far we have fallen in our deceptions….
Churches for most are wealthy and should be regarded the way Jesus regarded the moneychangers in the temple….
Tithing..but its in the bible……Yes it is. Then study what the bible says, it is specific way of offering from your work to the temple for a specific period of time for a specific purpose of God.
Does it continue in the new testament churches, a huge NO.
Who started this,? The catholic church needed more money for funding their killing sprees ‘crusades’ and payments to kings. People were obligated to pay for their salvation to the pope (church) as being obedient and ‘faithful’. Many widows were also harassed until they signed their wills for the church. This said many kings seeking favour of the one pope who appointed himself to be god, gave many properties for the church. Many thousands heretics and unfavoured folks where tortured and ‘confessed’ and had their possessions taken away.. this continues in a civil manner even today to feed the lusts, the greed’s and the ‘work of the gospel of churches’…….
When you tithe you do give it to the pastor for he controls and uses the money. The days are long gone when churches used to be transparent and declare and show financial statements. In fact a;; churches since 105 3 c are now regarded as corporations and subject to its laws and control, (a new world order agenda) over 75 000 churches in the usa have betrayed theor members by secretly handing over members details to homeland security and there seems to be factual evidence that many received money from fema for it. One day they will know who follows the bible faithfully and you are marked…..
Moneychangers…..you are silly. AM I? Churches and evangelists, its leaders make money and for most very much of it. I remember Jesus saying,
And again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God
but then who is listening, pastors, priests, evangelists and those who sell cd’s, dvd’s, books, magazines, musicians, gospel singers, films, christian entertainment businesses and more. Collection in churches for missions, for ‘the poor, plays, pagan christmas and easter celebrations…… wherever you look money money money….. the they go to the old testament specific for the levitic priesthood (take note here) and quote a verse or 2 and then even pray over it. For many they follow what other churches do, some in faith and adherence to contribute for their ‘works’ and sometimes the ‘mother’ church.
Jesus Christ came, lived as man and died and rose again on the third day.
Who replaces the priesthood? JESUS CHRIST. Good so far. Lets look at the early assemblies of the disciples and here is the key to tithing. They formed not churches, men did. They assembled and preached the ONE gospel of Jesus Christ to the assembly. For even God then spoke about an orderly assembly with elders and the conduct of women at the assemblies. God also spoke of the tares (followers) that satan placed in the assemblies to frustrate the gospel.
The key? There is not a single verse that teaches ‘tithing’ in the new testament assemblies, NOT one! A yes, Paul was a tentmaker, so he worked with his hands to support his many travels, parchments and ink. Mostly likely he received food from other believers in their homes. The other disciples where looked after similarly.
Now it get interesting. Paul wrote specifically as we read in: 1Co 16:2
On one of the sabbaths, let each of you put by himself, storing up whatever he is prospered, that there not be collections then when I come.
What was collected ? Clothing, food and blankets for taking with to the poorer churches
There are many verses for example the 70 that Jesus sent on a mission fieldtrip, they where commanded not to take money.
Ok, back to 21st century. The argument lies that buildings and pastors need money.
Let the elders apportion for the costs and a humble salary for the leader if it must be so.
Now to the person who tithes, what are you sowing you money into? Tithing is unbiblical. Churches should rely then on donations as ‘gifts’ from its members strictly transparent and accounted for.
Now comes the final line… is your church actually doing Gods work in teaching biblical (entirely perfectly biblical truth) or are they stumbling in the dark preaching darkness with the many other gospels that they preach….. and that is where you sow your money.
We all love the fellowship on sundays, but that’s not where it ends……we start with the so called ‘worship singing’ and the tithing and the sermon and go back home to watch football or send the kids to the friends.
Anyone poor and destitute asks me for food or clothes, I use my money to feed them or clothe them. …….
Revelation 12:10 says that Satan was overcome by Salvation. So, Christians have already rejected Satan and his demons and been given eternal life through Jesus. Why then, are people here, so occupied with the preaching of the devil and his demons to the point where they’re no longer preaching the good news of Jesus’ coming to provide forgiveness of sins for all who will believe?
A brother of mine posted this above discussion on another site and it is really worth noting here. I will add my comments as I replied to it.
Is this verse not a clear and direct command?
1Ti_2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
When I brought this up on another site, I was scathingly attacked and eventually the post was deleted, perhaps to unpopular and against world view. I am not here to please man, but God……
God has a established a natural and spiritual order, can we just go and do as we please even use his beloved name as a cover…. Will those that teach biblical truth against churches and the Christian religion eventually be silenced by the delete button….
This has nothing to do with world made rights of equality of women. Lets follow the bible as authority.
Christ is the high priest, Man the head of the house and family and the woman the caregiver subservient unto the husband…
Now it gets interesting if you study the Hebrew letters in this regard actually the woman completes the man in marriage to become the head of the house…. and part of the God family. and then the two become one spiritually…. assuming always all is done in Gods favour and will and love………
This has nothing to do with equality issues and agendas, nor be demeaning to women in general.
When it comes to a woman preaching or leading a church, that is against God’s word, the bible.
In heaven there is no male or female, we all just are ‘sons of God’ in perfect harmony and love.
In the Bible, God repeatedly describes the nature of the sin of the church. Much that is unbiblical goes on in congregations and denominations today. This is not apostasy in sects and cults, which obviously are under the power of Satan; rather, it is in evangelical, Bible -related churches. To our utter consternation, these sins apply to a high degree to many of the most conservative contemporary churches and denominations.
In the Bible, we can learn how God plans to eventually destroy the New Testament church as it
becomes increasingly sinful. It will be by satanic activity working through false gospels that look so much like the true Gospel that even the elect would be deceived, if that were possible….. (for it is not as they have the holy spirit within them)
The Bible discloses that right near the end of time, Satan will become the dominant ruler within the congregations. In II Thessalonians 2, God speaks of the man of sin taking his seat in the temple. It will be seen that the man of sin can be only Satan.
We read in Matthew 24:24: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
In Revelation 13:7, God informs us: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
Revelation 13 speaks of the beast that comes out of the earth. This can be only Satan and his dominion, as he rules through false gospels. By this means, he is able to destroy the churches that are under the judgment of God. Thus, he is able to overcome the saints, the true believers, within the congregations.
Why does God write extensively in I Corinthians 12, 13, and 14 about the
phenomenon of tongues? One might be surprised to read in the Bible about this temporary phenomenon.
A few decades after this phenomenon occurred in the church in Corinth, the visions of the Book of Revelation were received by the Apostle John on the Island of Patmos.
The Book of Revelation closes with the warning that anyone who adds to its words will be subject to plagues; therefore, there can be no further revelation from God by visions, voices, tongues, or anything else. Thus, the phenomenon of tongues that occurred in the church at Corinth would also have come to an end. From that time to the present day, do not expect God to bring a message by these means or by any means other than what He has given us in the Bible.
An ever-increasing number of individuals and congregations all over the world fail this end -of-time program. The tongues movement, part of the “charismatic movement,” is sweeping through
like wildfire. The “charistmatic movement” was started by the wickedness of freemason billy graham and many followed his directives under satan. Virtually every denomination has churches that have welcomed it with open arms. One of these gospels in the supernatural occurrence of tongues, which is found in most churches today and many pastors and preachers use it and encourage it. The church has become increasingly apostate.
Consequently, God is blinding people so that they believe this movement is of the Holy Spirit. They do not realize that it is of Satan. By means of this phenomenon, Satan appears to be defeating the true Gospel to a degree never before realized.
The second characteristic of the tongues movement is an interest in signs and wonders. There is a conviction that God is performing miracles today, as our Lord and the twelve apostles did signs and wonders. Miraculous healing is most commonly expected. The sign of people falling backward (being “slain in the spirit” as some call it), is evidence of a supernatural event. While so-called miraculous healing can be explained in earthly, physical terms, falling backwards appears to be unexplainable from an earthly, physical vantage point.
We read in revelations that the bible is a sealed book, it is completed by God for us and we are warned not to add nor remove from it. Therefore there will be no more tongues after 100AD to ‘add to the bible’ there will be no more prophets nor messengers after 100AD.
When God is ready to destroy this earth by fire and create new heavens and a new earth, He will bring judgment on the churches that have become increasingly apostate. God utilizes Satan for this dreadful task even as He used the wicked nations of Assyria and Babylon to destroy ancient Israel. Satan will not be the final victor. When Satan thinks he has won, God will bring him into judgment. Revelation 20:9 and the end of time will come… Glory to God.
Jesus Christ says I will send you the comforter the Holy Spirit. That is what we are to TRUST.
God warns so lovingly…..be not deceived by no means My children by no means……
Shalom and be blessed of truth and Gods
The world has given us numerous and varied as many interpretations, deceptions, lies, from so called prophets, televangelists, christian book authors, even from the wicked left behind series and many more, some because they understood not, others because they came to deceive intentionally the world…..
To get to know the true gospel by Jesus Christ we have to look at what the bible declares Gods word of wisdom.
Let’s read here Dan_12:8 And I heard, but I did not understand. And I said, O my lord, what shall be the end of these things?
And we read here in Mat_24:3 And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And, What is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?
To this, Jesus who is God, the creator, teaches certain prophetic events which lead into the great tribulation age, which actually the final judgement age and judgement day, when we will encounter the last day of events. These events and their true revealing has never been before been done, as far as I have researched with hundreds of so called ‘revelations’ out there. The answer lies in understanding scripture, the holy word of God. Now lets hear….
When we dawn on the last day of the judgement period, also referred to in the bible as ‘judgement day an immense event starts taking place never seen before and never will occur again.
We now need to understand carefully scripture proves that judgement day, is a single 24 hour day, wherein all events take place.
We further need to understand carefully that Jesus will NOT come back to earth to rule a 1000 years.
Let understand the true teaching of events of the one true Gospel of Jesus Christ …..
The first event to take place is 1Th_4:16 Because the Lord Himself shall come down from Heaven with a commanding shout of an archangel’s voice, and with God’s trumpet. And the dead in Christ will rise again first. We then read how the saved, who experienced death and are asleep since the beginning of time, just over 13000 years ago are awakened and rejoice in their spiritual bodies to be with God in heaven.
The second immense event to take place as we read 1Th_4:17 Then we who remain alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to a meeting with the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. This teaches us the saved alive on this final day of creation experience not death but are instantly received in heaven and have received their spiritual bodies. We discover that the first ‘raptured’ are astounded as these enter heaven and even they are so many ‘no man can number. These are now all the 200 million saved, also called ‘children of God’ or the ‘144000’, in all of time and they appear described as horsemen with God in the heavens or clouds. We also read that many Christians do remain in the world and curse God. This shows that the world sees this most beautiful event, except those who may be asleep in their beds. Salvation is completed.
The third event following is that God’s indescribable fierce wrath and fury on the entire creation commences, so fierce that even is described by the language of ‘the dead bones of men coming out of the earth to receive their shame’, teaching us that the remaining on earth will be unrepentant and suffer tremendously and die most agonising deaths, thereafter they are dead and the souls of the dead remain dead and perished forevermore.
The fourth event described in scripture is the destruction of the fallen angels, the demons.; followed by God destroying the fallen archangel, lucifer also named satan, as we read Rev 20:10 And the Devil leading them astray was thrown into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were.
The fifth event to take place is the destruction of the world now devoid of any people and the entire created universe disappears as God will it.
The sixth great event to take place as judgement day nears the end of day is the creation of an entire new universe as we read here in Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea no longer is.
The final and seventh event is the most spectacular and holy event second only to the creation of Jesus Christ, beloved Son of God who was sacrificed by Almighty God in an act of indescribable love for those who become saved and are witnessing all these events; to all the children of God, God ‘wipes’ any and all their memories of what had happened in created time and then we proceed to the most holy final event of the day;
The ‘marriage feast of God’ where the Sons of God become spiritually united as one with God forevermore and reign ‘1000 years’ which symbolises eternity and all we can now say is …Holy, Holy, Holy… come our Lord come,
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you. Amen
