Have Yourself a Merry "Lawless" X-Mas














The majority of the world wants a godless and lawless existence (conservative and liberal) and desires for their lawless lives the fruits of RIGHTEOUSNESS by applying godless and lawless means (Rom. 10:2-4, 2 Peter 3:16, Jude 1:10). Even today, just as 2000 years ago the majority of the world still REJECTS Almighty God’s FREE GIFT of saving grace, redemption and ETERNAL LIFE which is found ONLY in Jesus Christ (Rom. 1:18-32). So when Christmas is in the air here in America... is it any wonder that the majority of Americans this season will be celebrating a Merry "X-Mas" and not a Merry CHRISTmas (Matt. 7:21-23,15:1-9, Phil. 3:19, Titus 1:16, Jude 1:10)? My dear friends, no offense to anyone. I do not want to ruin anyone's X-Mas... but wouldn't it be WONDERFUL if those who celebrated Christmas TRULY KNEW the very One who came to earth 2000 years ago and why we as a fallen world so desperately need Him in our lives; for here in time and for all ETERNITY future (John 3:16-17, Eph. 1:7, 2:2-10).

Is it any wonder that the majority of Americans this season will be celebrating a Merry "X-Mas" and not a Merry CHRISTmas.

The dear shepherds and Israel at the birth of the Messiah were absolutely oblivious to who Almighty God TRULY was, why the present state and condition of the nation Israel and what was their greatest need for their lives. Their greatest need was not to be free from under the yoke of Rome and Herod, but to be delivered from the tyranny, oppression and bondage of Satan, their wretched fallen state and ETERNAL damnation (Rom. 7:24-25, Heb. 2:14-15).

Even today just as 2000 years ago the majority of the world still rejects Almighty God’s FREE GIFT of saving grace, redemption and ETERNAL LIFE.
.
Is today any different here in America. The Bible can be found in our own tongue abundantly in every facet of our society, but is the most neglected and rejected book in our nation. Our nation is fully saturated today with godlessness, lawlessness, corruption, decadence, violence, the blood of millions of the unborn, lewdness, narcissism, drug addiction, sex addiction, greed (poor and rich) and the outright rejection of Almighty God and His infallible Word. The height of hypocrisy is that we run around saying Merry Christmas, God bless you, God bless America and Happy Holidays and are absolutely oblivious that we as a nation are about to reap the whirlwind and receive the full weight of Almighty God’s wrath coming up shortly in the Day of the Lord (Rev. 6-16). We as a nation (conservative and liberal) are looking for solutions by godless means. We are seeking political saviors who cannot save this sinking Titanic. We have replaced REALITY with vain and delusional optimism and demonic euphemisms. We as a people want to be delivered from all of the ills that plague our nation but we do NOT want to give up our lawless vices that got us here in the first place. Our day is no different than that night 2000 years ago when the world and the shepherds guarding their sheep were oblivious to what Almighty God was doing and what He was going to do. Think about it, how many people back then and here today are looking for Almighty God's TRUE Savior? The answer is a horrific, nearly none (Isa. 53, Matt. 7:13-14, John 1:10-11)!


The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men?



















One of the most favorite sayings and happy thoughts that are spoken frequently by people during the Christmas or “holiday” season is the phrase “Peace on Earth good will to men”. There are bumper stickers, signs, shirts, holiday cards, trinkets etc. that seek to capitalize and get out this optimistic and positive message. Even liberal secularists who reject biblical Christianity love to quote this phrase and claim it as their own. Sadly, this phrase is TOTALLY taken out of the biblical context and is perceived from a subjective godless utopian world perspective (conservative and liberal).

Even liberal secularists who reject biblical Christianity love to quote this phrase and claim it as their own.

The origin of this quote is taken from the biblical account in Luke of the countless MILLIONS of angelic beings who were sent forth by Almighty God to proclaim the Savior’s birth (Luke 2:.8-15, Heb.1:14). These countless innumerable angelic beings manifested themselves with the heavenly heralds of wondrous and astonishing exaltations of great joy to the oblivious shepherds who were in the fields of Bethlehem GUARDING their sheep by NIGHT (Luke 2:8-14). It was in the birth of THIS child (Jesus Messiah (Isa. 9:6-7) that Almighty God would bring forth the propitiation for redemption for ALL of fallen humanity and the final death nail and demise of Lucifer and his fallen angelic monsters (Gen. 3:15, John 16:7-11, 1 John 1:2:2, Rev. 5, 20:10). The righteous angelic hosts of heaven comprehended what was taking place and were ecstatic about what their Creator was doing. It absolutely stupefied these angelic beings as the Son of God - the pinnacle of glory - stepped out of ETERNITY and and put on flesh and blood to redeem Adam’s fallen race. Is it any wonder that and shouted with exceedingly great joy (John 1:1-3, 14, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 10:1-18)!

It absolutely stupefied these angelic beings as the Son of God - the pinnacle of glory - stepped out of ETERNITY and and put on flesh and blood to redeem Adam’s fallen race.

Almighty God the Creator of all (Col. 1:16,-17, Heb. 1:2-3, Rev. 4:11) was interceding on behalf of Adam’s fallen and rebellious race and showing forth His ETERNAL love, mercy and grace in good will towards His enemies (Rom. 5:6, Eph. 2:1-10, Col. 1:20-22). The objective angelic understanding of Adam’s fallen race far exceeds our own as humans (Heb.1:14). They exist and dwell in FULL REALITY and heavenly LIGHT. They know all to well the horrific devastation that awaits unrepentant unregenerate transgressing mankind in the Lake of Fire FOREVER (Matt. 13:42, 50, 25:41, John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15, 21:8). Is it any wonder that the angelic hosts of heaven rejoice with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT joy when just one son of Adam repents and comes to the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world as their personal Savior (Isa. 53, Luke 2:13-14, John 3:16-17). This is what is meant by the statement “peace on earth good will towards men”. This child - who is Almighty God the Son - PUT ON flesh and blood to shed His RIGHTEOUS blood for the transgressions of the entire world (Adam to the end of time).

Is it any wonder that the angelic hosts of heaven rejoiced with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT joy when just one son of Adam repents and comes to the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world as their personal Savior.

It was to be His sacrificial death and resurrection from the dead that would restore fellowship between man with their Creator and establish an EVERLASTING peace between the two parties (Job 9:33, John 1:14, Rom. 10:4, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 1:2-3, 10: 1-18). My beloved, this child IS our PEACE (Isa. 9:6, Eph. 2:14-17, Col. 1:20, 1 John 2:2)! When we seek to say “peace on earth, good will towards men” and LEAVE OUT the Son of God who is the ONLY Savior and method FOR establishing TRUE PEACE, we deceive ourselves and join in Satan’s godless rebellion against ALL that is the ETERNAL God and His ETERNAL sovereignty (2 Cor. 4:3-4). There can NEVER be true peace for those who REJECT and leave Almighty God the Son out of the equation (Psalm 112:10, Isa. 32:17, 48:18, 22, Rev. 20:11-15). Notice how the world leaves off and will NEVER state the first part of the quote, “GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST”? They can’t and will NEVER acknowledge that, for if they did they would have to repent and be saved (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess 2:10)!

When we seek to say “peace on earth, good will towards men” and LEAVE OUT the Son of God who is the ONLY Savior and method FOR establishing TRUE PEACE, we deceive ourselves and join in Satan’s godless rebellion against ALL that is the ETERNAL God and His ETERNAL sovereignty.

There is absolutely no way that TRUE PEACE and PERFECT HARMONY can EVER be brought about WITHOUT the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS of ALMIGHTY GOD (Isa. 32:17, 48:18,22). Almighty God’s whole ETERNITY and physical universe was established based on the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS PERSON of the TRIUNE GOD! How deceived are we as humans and totally delusional to think that we as Adam’s fallen race could establish a PERFECT world and enter into ETERNITY without the required RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God demands (1 Cor. 6:8-11, Gal. 5:19-21, Rev. 21:8, 22:14-15).We are a smashed and broken egg with absolutely no way our repairing ourselves. 6000 years of human history testifies to the fact that we are a violent and lawless race with death as our future and destiny (Rom. 3:23) and on our way to total destruction. If it had not been for Almighty God’s outside intervention holding back the full accumulation of violence of mankind we would have been extinct a long time ago  (Matt. 24:21-22, 2 Thess. 2:6-8). Isn’t it amazing that as American’s listen to our leaders in Washington D.C., the media (conservative and liberal), Hollywood and the music culture and industry preach utopian ideals unto them that the majority of the world sincerely believe that lie from hell, which is if we just keep working at “peace” (give peace a chance) that we will one day finally achieve it?

How deceived are we as humans and totally delusional to think that we as Adam’s fallen race could establish a PERFECT world and enter into ETERNITY without the required RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God demands.

My friend, let's wake up and get real! There is NO WAY that a smashed egg can EVER again be put perfectly back together and there is NO WAY that this broken world can EVER fix itself. This vain utopian pursuit is the ultimate delusional chasing of the devil’s cattle. At the end of this vain delusional chase the world will tragically finally find out the REALITIES of time and ETERNITY that they have REJECTED their whole lives (Luke 16:22-31, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). It will be in that Day that these will be fully AWAKENED from their self induced godless hypnotic delusion and will FULLY understand that their lawless self willed existence here in time has led them straight into the slaughter house of the ETERNAL Divine Judgment and wrath of Almighty God (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2; 8-12, Rev.20:11-15).

My dear friend this is not Almighty God’s desire for you, to die in your transgressions. He sent His Son 2000 years ago born of a virgin so you might LIVE FOREVER with Him and to enjoy Him in RIGHTEOUS PERFECTION and BLISS FOREVERMORE (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev 21-22:1-5). This was Almighty God’s grand desire at the beginning of creation for mankind not what man has horrifically reaped upon himself. We as a world do not know divine PEACE let alone the temporal peace that fallen man can barely manufacture (Isa. 32:17, 48:18, 22, 53, John 1:10-11, Rom. 3, Rev.6-16).

A Savior was born and is soon coming again in great glory to establish His 1000 year reign of PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS!

This season may we truly - with all our being - want to know, possess and exercise the wondrous peace of Almighty God which He has brought to us by the shed blood of His dear Son (Eph. 2:14). As we walk in time may we seek to enjoy our redemptive benefits which have been given to us by our God and Savior (Eph. 1:3, 2:1-19, Phil. 4:17, Col. 3:1-4) and the heavenly peace of heart that comes with the fact and reality that our sins and trespasses are removed FOREVER (Psalm 103:12, Rom. 7:24-25, 10:4, Gal 1:4). That my friends is what “peace on earth is all about! Rejoice GREATLY (Phil. 4:4)! A Savior was born and is soon coming again in great glory to establish His 1000 year reign of PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS (Isa. 2:1-4, 9:6-7, 11:1-9, 32:1 Jer. 23:5, 33:15-16, Dan. 2:44-45, 7:7:13-14, Micah 4:1-4)!!!

A Christmas REALITY - Mary Needed a Savior!

Just a thought this Christmas season. One of the greatest myths in all of Christendom is that Mary (Miriam) the young girl who gave birth to the Savior of the world was sinless. I myself was taught this as a boy in the Catholic church and it wasn't till I was born again and started reading the Holy Scriptures for myself that I saw the true folly of such a myth. My dear friends, no greater lie could ever be told or fantasy ever believed! When this lie is embraced it derails the total ETERNAL movement of Almighty God and seeks to make the temporal, fallen and mortal the ETERNAL, RIGHTEOUS and DIVINE (Rom. 10:4). Mary herself testified that she rejoiced in Almighty God her Savior and one does not need a Savior if one is not a sinner (Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:2-4, Acts 4:12)! If we let the Holy Scriptures of Almighty God and Mary's own personal testimony speak to us then this great fantasy of many can NEVER stand.
.
Mary herself testified that she rejoiced in Almighty God her Savior and one does not need a Savior if one is not a sinner.
And Mary herself said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate (to look with pity on her vile condition) of his handmaiden (slave): for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation (St. Luke 1:45-49).

Also the Holy Scriptures tell us that Mary offered a burnt offering and a sin offering for an atonement after her purification (Leviticus 12:1-8). If Mary was not a fallen daughter fallen of Adam she would not have needed to offer an offering of sin.  

And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons (St. Luke 2:22-24).

My dear friends, if you are one who holds to the teaching of the Catholic church on Mary of Nazareth I would like to challenge you to believe Almighty God's Word and receive the biblical position of Mary and that of salvation (John 1:12, Acts 16:28-30, Romans 6:23, 10:2-4, 1 John 5:13). Mary the young maiden - by faith - trusted in Almighty God for her ETERNAL salvation as a young girl before her angelic visitation and little did she know that she would be the vessel of Almighty God to bring forth the perfect body for her Lamb and propitiation of her soul (John 1:29, John 3:16-17, 36, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 John 2:2, 4:10).

Mary the young maiden - by faith - trusted in Almighty God for her ETERNAL salvation as a young girl before her angelic visitation and little did she know that she would be the vessel of Almighty God to bring forth the perfect body for her Lamb and propitiation of her soul.

The first Christmas two thousand years ago - the young Jewish girl of the tribe of Judea - Mary; was trying to comprehend and take in the wonders of the last nine months (Matt. 1, Luke 2:24-80). Mary was highly favored above all women and was given the Divine assignment to prepare the body for the ETERNAL Spirit of the Son of Almighty God (Isa. 9:6-7, Micah 5:2, John 1:12, Heb. 10). The true servants heart and faith of Mary is to be greatly commended and her exampled followed; but when individuals seek to change her testimony and her witness to fantastic fables they do her and her ETERNAL Savior a great disservice and dishonor.

Mary needed a Savior and believed as the Word of God clearly stated (Lev.). What about you? If Mary was her today she would point you to her God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Messiah to save your soul and give you ETERNAL LIFE (John 3:16-17). What will you do? Will you listen to Biblical Mary or traditional Mary?

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

I Wonder as I Wander

Have You Been to the Manger?

My dear friend, may I ask you this very personal question since we are in the “Christmas” season? Do you truly comprehend and believe the biblical message of ETERNAL salvation put forth by Almighty God in His infallible Word? Do you fully comprehend without a shadow of a doubt that your ABSOLUTE GREATEST NEED is to be delivered from your fallen humanity and the wrath of your Creator (John 3:36, 1 John 5:12)? My friend are you fully prepared for your ETERNAL abode? Do you have the ABSOLUTE PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS required by Almighty God (Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:2-4)? My friend, no one does and that is why we need Almighty God's Savior so desperately!

This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be satisfying propitiation that would make peace on earth.

No wonder the angelic multitude on that night 2000 years ago rejoiced with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT JOY, for they FULLY understood what this lost world did not. For what sin had destroyed, Almighty God was seeking to redeem. This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be the satisfying propitiation that would bring TRUE peace to the earth earth (1 John 2:2). Indeed Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS intentions and good will towards mankind were expressed in the sending of His precious Son (John 3:16-17). Oh beloved, that is what Christmas is about!!

Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago?
/
A Savior was born! Do you personally know Him? That is your own personal choice to make. Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago (Luke 2:9-12)? All who hear God's proclamation and obey it will find Him will (Luke 2:15-18). May it be so that you choose to receive the LOVE of Almighty God which is His dear Son who is the greatest gift this Christmas season and every season! Place your trust in Him today, you will NEVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Awaiting Red Dragon and the First Christmas.













Long before the first nativity (First Christmas) ever took place it was well known by the god of this world (Gen. 3:14-15, Eph. 2:2-3, Rev. 12:4). Lucifer, - at his fall -ABSOLUTELY COMPREHENDED that he was ETERNALLY doomed. His violent rebellion against Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty and RIGHTEOUSNESS was WELL planned and thought out (Isa. 14:12-15). I truly believe that when Lucifer was created at the beginning of Almighty God’s creation and was given the chief position in the worship of the TRIUNE GOD that he truly loved and adored his Creator (Ezek. 28:12-15). The heavenly worship which he conducted in that timeless past was one of majestic praise and glory. He inspired the countless angelic hosts and brought great praise and glory to Almighty God. But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion. He began looking at his created beauty and pride and rebellion began to consume him (Ezek. 28:12-15).

But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion.

As time went on he became more and more consumed with power and finally acted on his godless delusional ambitions and fully crossed over the line of the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS and SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God (Isa, 14:12-15, Ezek. 28:15) into the full manifestation of godless evil and rebellion. His new totalitarian mindset (the lust for total control) transgressed and undermined all that is Almighty God and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS SOVEREIGNTY. Lucifer then proceeded to seduced and convinced 1/3 of the angelic host to partake in his godless transgression and rebellion against all that is ETERNALLY ABSOLUTE and was cast out of the presence of Almighty God (Rev. 12:4). He was exiled out of Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom of light and was cast out into the outer darkness of Almighty God's creation. All the wonder of his CREATED beauty was as a beautifully cut diamond surrounded by a multitude of precious jewels (Ezek. 28:12-15). When he rebelled and abandoned the LIGHT of RIGHTEOUSNESS he became valueless and with out purpose. For WITHOUT the brilliance of HIS Creator’s DIVINE light of RIGHTEOUSNESS the wondrous jewels that he was became worthless and of no value. What value are the most precious jewels of the world when they are left in the darkness? As these exiled angelic beings began to exist in the darkness of their minds - which was outside Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom’s realm of light and reality - they became more subjectively godless, evil, lawless and hateful. As their rage and insanity grew to EXPONENTIAL levels they fully abandoned ALL reality and became more aggressive in their war against Almighty God. This demonic aggression would be fully exercised and expressed in the heart of Almighty God’s new physical and tangible creation, the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3).

It was not to long after God’s new creation (Gen. 1) was completed that Lucifer found his opportunity and sought to deceive and destroy Almighty God’s divine representative and ruler over His physical creation, Man (Gen. 2). It was by the same subtle craftiness and deception which Lucifer applied to the angelic multitudes in the heavenly realm prior to this new creation that he would use on Man (John 8:44). Lucifer went forth in his vindictive vengeance and by his craftiness and subtle questioning deceived and led the woman to commit spiritual suicide (Gen. 3:1-6, 1 Tim. 2:14). Lucifer knew that by the woman’s weaknesses he could bait and bring down Adam, thus corrupting and destroying Almighty God’s new creation and His sovereign representative (i.e., Man) and rule. When Adam followed his wife’s transgression and openly disobeyed Almighty God’s commands, he also died spiritually and lost his dominion to Satan who became the ruler of this fallen world (Gen. 3, Rom. 5:12, 17, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3).

In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY.

Lucifer had successfully destroyed Almighty God’s sovereign representative and rendered him useless for man’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS calling and purpose (Gen. 3:1-7, Rom. 5:12, 17). Lucifer and the fallen angelic host rejoiced greatly at the success of this great demonic coos! Their revenge was complete… so they thought and their vindictive rage finally appeased. In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY (Isa. 14:12-15). Oh how deceived are those who dwell in darkness and feed on delusion and vanity (Prov. 8:36, Rom. 1:18-32, John 3:19-21)! As time would go on they would personally experience they were ETERNALLY no match for the OMNISCIENCE of Almighty God (Job 5:9, Isa. 40:28, 55:9, Rom. 11:33).

It was at this point in time – at Adam’s fall - that Almighty God revealed His plan of REDEMPTION which was planned from the ENDLESS ETERNAL EONS of ETERNITY PAST (Gen. 3:14-15, 1 Peter 1:19-20, Rev. 13:9).

As Almighty God pronounced the judgment and revealed the consequences that would now follow Adam and Eve and their posterity through out their existence in time, He then revealed His plan for the ETERNAL salvation for man and the final means of the demise of Lucifer and his angelic demonic hosts (Gen. 3:15). It would be through the Man, - the very one who Lucifer had deceived and murdered spiritually - that the Savior would come (Rom. 5:12-21, 1 Cor. 15:21)! This Offspring of Eve would redeem mankind from their fallen nature, godless transgressions and ETERNAL demise and then would finally assign Lucifer and his angels to the Lake of Fire FOREVER (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 19:11-21, 20:1-3, 10). What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin (Rom. 5:6-21, 1 Cor. 15:21, Rev 1:18, 5). It would be by this far lesser creature (Man) than he, that Lucifer would find his final ETERNAL doom (John 1:1-3,14, Rom. 1:3-4, Phil. 2:6-11, Heb. 2:14-18, Rev. 5:5, 20:10).

What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin.

Since the Garden of Eden it has always been Satan and his demonic host’s sole desire and passion to destroy the line of the Messiah in whatever capacity and means possible (Rev. 12:4). Though Satan FULLY rejects the ETERNAL WORD of Almighty God, he believes what it states and uses Almighty God’s prophetic promises to seek to derail and destroy Almighty God’s prophetic promises from coming to be. One cannot study and read the Word of God and its righteous testimonies and not see Satan’s hand at work in his perpetual effort to derail Almighty God’s plan and purposes for humanity at every chance (John 8:44, Eph. 6:12, Rev. 12:9). He MUST... destroy the coming (1st and 2nd) of the Messiah to preserve himself and his host from ETERNAL damnation. He truly believes that it is in his power to over throw Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY and become lord  and despot of His creation (physical and spiritual). As a raging madman, Lucifer was hell bent on destroying Almighty God’s Promised One from being born. It has been since the Garden of Eden that he has been on this perpetual assassination mission and as we shall see, he was present and ready to destroy the babe of Bethlehem 2000 years ago (Rev. 12:4).

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (Israel) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon (Satan), having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars (angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne” (Rev. 12:1-5).

You see, Lucifer “the Dragon” was there on that first Christmas night when the Savior of the world was born (Rev. 12:4). This violent raging Dragon knew exactly who this babe was and he could not afford to let this One who was the promised Savior from the Garden of Eden to exist (Gen. 3). He (the Messiah) had to be annihilated and destroyed. Yet Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY kept this dragon a bay. There is the account given in Scripture in which we see Satan's hand behind Herod’s violent decree two years later in which he sought to destroy every child in the city of David up to two years old (Matt. 2:12-21). Lucifer throughout Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – but all to no avail - for it was not His time. Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION and nothing - not even the great red Dragon - could stop that from coming to be (Matt. 26:39, John 19:30, Heb. 10:4-14, Rev. 5:5-9). God’s description of Lucifer as a violent raging dragon is for us to understand just who this horrific monster is. He is our fiercest enemy (2 Cor. 4:4, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 Peter 5:8, Rev. 12:11). It is his sole desire - as in the Garden of Eden - to keep Almighty God’s creation and mankind doomed and under his tyrannical grasp for his own evil hyper narcissistic means (Heb. 2:14-15). You see, it is Lucifer's sole desire to receive the worship of Almighty God's creation - in heaven above and earth below - and to establish his kingdom of darkness FOREVER (Gen. 11, Isa. 14:12-15, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3,  Rev. 13).

Lucifer through out Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – all to no avail - for Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION.

2000 years ago in Bethlehem of Judea a godless world was about its own way, OBLIVIOUS to Almighty God’s wondrous love and OBLIVIOUS to the demonic murderer’s grand intentions to destroy the only hope for mankind's salvation (Isa. 53:6, John 1:10, 3:17-17).

As we enter into another Christmas season, how many people today are also oblivious to the continued raging spiritual war that is in full engagement all around us? This great war is ever raging for the hearts, souls and minds of mankind and will climax at the Battle of Armageddon (Eph. 2:2-10, 6:12, Rev. 16:13-16). The Dragon still is EVER seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to REDEEM and SAVE (John 3:16-17)! No wonder the multitudes of angelic hosts rejoiced that night 2000 years ago when the Savior of mankind was born (Matt. 1:21, Luke 2:8-14, Rom. 5:17). Almighty God gloriously fulfilled His promise to mankind in light of Satan’s continual opposition. My friend even now God has protected and kept us from the FULL WRATH of this raging dragon and has given ALL the opportunity to be delivered from this tyrannical monster, our fallen nature and the ETERNAL JUDGMENT of Almighty God on our transgressions against His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES (John 1:12, Acts 16:29-31, Eph. 2:2-10).

The Dragon still is seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to redeem and save!

This Christmas season may you be sure that you truly know the Savior that Almighty God has provided for you. Lucifer the raging dragon is still seeking to destroy and devour as he did 2000 years ago on that first Christmas night but Almighty God is also seeking to deliver ALL who come to His promised Savior and Messiah. Oh beloved! That is truly what Christmas is all about!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Christmas is not Pagan or "Holiday"


















Each year around this time, in Facebook posts and elsewhere, we are certain to be lectured by well-meaning Christians on the "sinfulness" of celebrating Christmas. Their arguments can be persuasive. "In the Bible, God never told us to celebrate Christmas," they say. "Christmas has its roots in paganism," they say. So that must mean we're just dupes celebrating a pagan ritual when we ignorantly think we're gratefully celebrating the birth of Jesus. Who wants to celebrate what God never told us to celebrate and which supposedly has its roots in paganism? Not me! But are those things really true?

While there is no specific instruction in the Bible to honor or celebrate the birth of Jesus each year (and no, of course we don't know the actual date of His birth), neither is there any prohibition of it. Further, when you read the Gospel accounts of the birth of Jesus, it is clear that heaven and earth celebrated that miraculous event. Can you imagine the breathtaking awe felt by those humble shepherds at the sight of the multitude of heavenly host praising God on that powerful, wonderful occasion?


I can think of nothing more worthy of annual remembrance and celebration than the birth of Christ, alongside the celebration of His resurrection from the dead (the supposed "paganism" about which we are also lectured by those same well-meaning Christians. "The root word for Easter is the name of a pagan goddess!" they say). These events are part of the Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

I submit to you that the truth is the opposite of these assertions of paganism. The claims that the pagan rituals in which Christmas (and Easter) supposedly are based pre- date Jesus' birth, earthly ministry, sacrifice and resurrection from the dead are wrong. Nothing "pre-dates" Jesus. He is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. He is outside of time, because He is before time. All things were made by Him, and without Him nothing – nothing – was made. He is God. His willing sacrifice to save the world was set and planned before the dawn of time and creation of the world.

All pagan (satanic) rituals, "holidays" and celebrations throughout history are nothing more than cheap imitation knock-offs of the Real Thing. Satan has always tried to set himself in the place of Jesus, to be the object of worship. Before being cast to earth, he tried the same thing in heaven. To this end, he has created myriad false religions and rituals, from blatantly pagan to sneaky, fake "Christian." Not only are these designed for Satan to soak up men's worship, but also to deceive men and keep them from coming to a saving knowledge of Truth found only in the Word of God.

In so many different ways, since the fall of man in the Garden, the devil has deceptively imitated and mocked Christ's ministry and message, even before they played out in time. So, no, the celebration of the birth of Christ – that we call Christmas – does not have its roots in paganism. It's the other way around. Satan has always stolen the ideas he has from Christ's truth, and then he twists and perverts that truth into lies and grotesque wickedness.

Another point to consider is the fact that the world, currently under Satan's lordship, despises and reviles all things of God and Christ. Thus, we see Satan's war on Christmas, waged by his servants the God-haters among us. If Christmas was truly based in satanic paganism, don't you think the devil would be fine with its presence in the public square? Instead, we now see almost every major corporation aggressively scrubbing even the mention of Christmas from their businesses and advertising.

It's irksome to see the ridiculous level this corporate purging of Christmas has reached. Having been in radio for 22 years, I've watched as the generic word "holiday" has slowly replaced Christmas in national radio ads. It would be silly if it weren't so devilish:

"This holiday, give the gift your sweetheart wants!" "Make your holiday cards special!" "Find all your holiday gifts in one location!" "Do your holiday shopping with us, and save!" "We have the perfect holiday gifts at prices you'll love!"

It's not "holiday." It's Christmas. No one sends out "holiday cards." They send out Christmas cards. No one does their "holiday shopping." They do their Christmas shopping. No one gives "holiday gifts." They give Christmas gifts. This is yet another example of the world doing its worst to obliterate even the mention of Christ – in this case, as it appears in the word Christmas. The giant corporations are glad to scrub Christmas from their advertising, but boy do they love to load up on national "holiday" ads in order to separate you from your Christmas cash!

Christmas is not pagan, and it's not "holiday." It is part of the greatest True Story in the history of stories. How fortunate we are that God so loved the world! Jesus, stepped down from the glory of His heavenly throne and into the form of man. He was born into the world He loved so much that He willingly offered His precious, sinless life in place of ours, and all we have to do is believe and accept His free gift salvation.

For those well-meaning Christians who deeply believe celebrating Christmas is wrong, an offense to God, then for them, it is wrong. Let every man be convinced in his heart. But, for those of us who view it as the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, then let us celebrate it with joy and thanks to God.

Merry Christmas!

O Come, All Ye Faithful!

The PERFECT EGG in the Manger

Only in the Messiah of Israel is found the RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s Holy and Perfect Heaven. That is what is so wonderful about the Christmas message! Almighty God provided a PERFECT body for His Son to dwell and make atonement for the sins of the world (Matt. 1:20-21, Luke 1:30-35, John 1:14, Heb. 10:5, 1 Peter 1:19)!

We can NEVER enter into Almighty God's holy RIGHTEOUS Heaven without the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS of the Savior. The PERFECT LAMB for the world was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2000 years ago to be the Savior of the world! It is ONLY through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). It is in Christ alone that we have true son-ship and forgiveness for sins (John 1:12; Gal. 3:26) and citizenship (Eph. 2:19; Philip. 3:20) in Almighty God’s glorious RIGHTEOUS Heaven FOREVER (Rev 22:5). No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:10-14)!!

No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder!!

No Flesh (man's fallen lawless nature) shall EVER glory in His presence (Rom. 7). "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption" (1 Cor. 1:29-30). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It is ONLY through the Messiah of Israel who was born 2000 years ago that we have access into the RIGHTEOUS presence of Almighty God and gain valid citizenship into His RIGHTEOUS Heaven. My friend in these very trying days be sure that you are trusting in Almighty God’s Son as ONLY taught in the Holy Scriptures for your ETERNAL destiny depends on it (John 3:36, Acts 4:12). This Christmas - if you have not already done so- be sure that you place your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today. You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
