My dear friends and to those of the Ignorant Fishermen brigade, we receive many emails and comments referring to how “NEGATIVE” our evaluation and diagnoses of the current state of our nation and the world in general is. We constantly hear the subjective scoffing such as…”You’re guys are a bunch of defeatist and quitters”. You are a bunch of “doom and gloomers”. You are causing strife and division among “Christians”. “You’re crazy and nuts and who do you think you are to say such things…?” “You are preaching hate” and my personal favorite, “The “god” I serve would NEVER let these things happen you hater and self righteous bigot”. Well… it’s never a dull movement here at the IFB… that there... is for sure… but it’s all good my friends and we are not detoured, for we are extremely confident and bold in the Lord for YOUR sakes and in His precious Word and ETERNAL promises for ALL (2 Cor. 1:20, 2 Peter 1:4). We are not moved by the negative and sometimes downright hate that is lashed out at us, for how could we be when Almighty God’s Word has NEVER been so abundant for ALL to possess and clear for ALL to understand. We can see His prophetic truths of His soon return materializing right before our very eyes which is absolutely amazing! God’s Word burns in our hearts and why should it not?
Who cannot be saved and read these personal positive wonderful truths of Almighty God for His children and not be moved and inspired! Who cannot rejoice in the ETERNAL salvation which Almighty God has provided for all those who have chosen to receive His FREE pardon and know Him (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 16:29-31, Rom. 5:12-21, Eph. 2:8-9, Rev. 22:17)! Who could not rejoice in redemption’s ETERNAL wondrous plan (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5)! Who could not rejoice that our sins are forgiven and that we possess ETERNAL life (Ps. 103:12, John 3:16-17, 17:3)! Who could not rejoice in our position in Christ (Eph. 1:3, 2:1-14, Col. 3:1-4, 1 John 4:4)! Who cannot rejoice that we are living in the very days of our Savior’s soon return! Oh GLORY my beloved! Oh Glory! When we allow Almighty God to be Almighty God to us and see things from Heaven’s ETERNAL perspective it is wonderful, for He is EXPONENTIALLY wonderful! We are SET FREE from the ruler and slave master of this world, from the bondage of sin, and the fear of death’s dread sting (Rom. 8:15, Eph. 2:1-14, Heb. 2:14-15). Oh my beloved, it’s all “ETERNALLY” good in the Lord (Phil. 4:4)!
In all sincerity, the IFB’s objective Biblical perspective is VERY positive and teeming with wondrous hope, Words of life and ETERNAL great expectations for all who would receive it (Rom. 15:4, Phil. 4:4)! For my beloved, we provide that for you - an objective ETERNAL insight - which you will NEVER hear or receive from the Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys, Glen Becks, Jim Vicevichs and Michael Savages of the world. They talk of only what they know of which is from their subjective conservative “spiritual” unregenerate world perspective (Rom 8:1-9, Cor. 2:14, James 3:13-18, Jude 1:19). Thank God for them BUT… they can only offer you a subjective worldly perspective without any ETERNAL realities and truths (Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14) and in the end they have deceived themselves and you my dear friend (2 Cor. 11:13-15, 2 Tim 3:13). They can only offer you temporal optimistic appraisals, wishful thinking and spider web hopes to get you through the evil day and darkened night but offer absolutely nothing about your ETERNAL destiny (Prov. 14:12, 16:25, Matt. 7: 13-27, John 3:36). They bring absolutely no REALITY of man’s accountability to their Creator, desperate need for Almighty God’s saving grace and RIGHTEOUSNESS and the overwhelming truths and realities that the Day of the Lord is at hand! (1 Cor. 2:2, Gal. 6:14, Col. 1:28, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6-19). These dire ETERNAL REALITIES of salvation and the soon coming Day of Wrath, the second coming of the Lord Jesus and His establishment of the Kingdom of Almighty God are scoffed at and dismissed by them as extreme, simple, relativistic “religious philosophies” and the rantings of zealots which have no relevance to our present day or future. The Lord Jesus Christ stated it Himself to a great “conservative and unsaved religious” leader in Israel, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” – John 3:3.
“Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, "Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” (John 3:9-12, ref. also Rom 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14)
If one has NEVER received the pardon of Almighty God (John 3:36), then one is NOT born again and regenerated by Almighty God’s Holy Spirit -, it is just that simple (John 3:3-17, 1 cor. 6:9-11, Titus 3:5, 1 Peter 1:3). Without this regeneration an individual will remain dead in their trespasses and sins and spiritually ignorant (John 14:16-17,26, Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14, 1 John 1:27). He will continually to be imprisoned in this subjective fallen world under the delusional sway of their tyrannical master Lucifer (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:2-3, 6:12). They cannot no matter how hard they try to fully comprehend the day we are living in and what is at the door because they REFUSE to believe it even though they might understand the basic truths of it (Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14, 2 Tim 2:25).
As these days come to an end and America is sucked into the vortex of fiscal, social and moral collapse, there is ALWAYS hope in Almighty God… ALWAYS (Matt. 28:20, John 14:1-3, 1 John 3:-12, Titus 2:13)! As Christ removes His Church (via the Rapture) my dear friends expect the world only to get DARKER and DARKER and DARKER… to the point that the world and its inhabitants will tail spin out of control into unimaginable global nuclear war, natural disasters, demonic oppression and possession and the willing worship of the anti Christ and Lucifer himself (2 Thess. 2:3-12,2 Tim. 3:1-7, Rev. 6-16). These horrific and catastrophic days ARE what is heading our way, like it or not, believe it or not. Be NOT deceived my dear friends by the many different voices and spirits that have gone throughout our land (Jer. 14:14, 23:16, Matt.7:15, Col. 2:4-8, 1 John 4:1) Almighty God sent His dear Son to rescue ALL who would put their trust and faith in Him for ETERNAL salvation (John 3:16-17, Gal 1:4). Hear, ye Him!
The time for unbelief, scoffing and ignorance must be put aside for objective Biblical reality. Hold onto your unbelief and fear if you so choose to but only expect ruin and desolation for your ETERNAL future and in this temporal existence here in time (John 3:36, 1 John 2:15-17, Rev. 20:11-15). May you choose to abandon and cast away your ideals which exclude Almighty God, His Word and His ETERNAL promises for you and place your trust in the Savior of the world! You will be set FREE and you will NEVER be the same (John 8:32, 36)! We here at the IFB can truly testify to that truth and reality. If it were not so my dear friends, well… we would be out fishing, eating, drinking and being merry for all would be vanity (1 Cor. 15:11-22), but that is NOT the case for we are YOUR servants for Christ’s sake in these last days before He comes for us! How can we not be, for we owe Him and we know what He has truly done for us! My dear friend, have faith in Almighty God and join us as we serve and REJOICE in the ETERNAL WONDERFUL PERSON of ALMIGHTY GOD! Only the fool will say no to the wondrous love of the Savior. May you not be one of them. (Eph. 5:16-17)
