The Believer’s DECLARATION of DEPENDENCE















As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and based on the facts of God’s Word, I DECLARE myself to be FREE INDEED (John 8:36).

My liberty is seen in three realms: First, concerning the god of this age, to whom I once belonged, I have been DELIVERED from the power of darkness and have been translated into the kingdom of God’s beloved Son (Col. 1:13), turned from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

Secondly, concerning my relationship to this world system, my Saviour gave Himself for me that He might deliver and rescue me from this present evil world (age), according to the will of God my Father (Gal. 1:4).

Thirdly, concerning the terrible slavery of sin, the Scriptures declare that though I once was the slave of sin, I am now the slave of God (Rom. 6:17-22) and the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Rom. 8:2).

The source of my liberty is found in the cross of my Lord Jesus Christ in which I truly boast (Gal. 6:14). The cross is my Statue of Liberty, as it were. It was there that my soul was set free. In Christ’s death I died, and in Christ’s life I now live (Rom. 6:4).

Based on the unchanging facts of God’s Word, I joyfully declare myself to be dead indeed unto sin and alive unto God in Jesus Christ my Lord (Rom. 6:11). I am not free to live as I please or do as I want. I am free to serve Christ and do as He pleases, living unto the One who died and rose again for me (2 Cor. 5:15).

My Declaration was not written by men, but written by the living God. It was not signed by men, but signed by the Lord Himself and sealed with the blood of Christ. God has declared me to be FREE INDEED and I am to stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made me free (Gal. 5:1).

My Declaration is not a Declaration of Independence, but rather a "Declaration of Dependence." I declare myself to be totally DEPENDENT upon my God. Of myself I cannot keep the law. I cannot measure up to God’s righteous standards. "How to perform that which is good I FIND NOT" (Rom. 7:18). The more I try in and of myself, the more I seem to fail, "for the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do" (Rom. 7:19). I thus acknowledge that Jesus Christ is my only deliverance from my wretched self (Rom. 7:24-25).

The Lord Jesus Christ is MY VINE (John 15). He is my LIFE SOURCE. Apart from Him I can do nothing, because HE IS MY LIFE (Col. 3:3-4). The battle is the Lord’s! He shall fight for me. The life is the Lord’s! He shall live in me. "Christ liveth in me" (Gal. 2:20). "For to me to live is Christ" (Phil. 1:21). I can’t, but He can. Whenever I try, I fail; but whenever I trust, He succeeds. Thus, with a firm reliance upon my God I will claim the victory which He won and which He gives to me: "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 15:5-7).

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!

America's Rejection of Almighty God and Our Founding Fathers






















If this 4th of July George Washington, John Adams and Benjamin Rush and the rest of our Founding Fathers were to come back from the grave and testified against America for her national departure from our founding, the majority of American’s would NOT hear them and would fully reject them. I truly believe Americans would be fully enraged  by their words of condemnation and rebuke and seek to destroy and slander them 24/7 on all the media news outlets and then have them stoned. We as a nation are too far gone morally to restore this nation and the majority of Americans do not have an ear to hear the moral and social conservatism which our founders stood for and believed. This is the sobering reality of our hour and one must ask himself, “Am I strong enough to look into the eyes of this horrific beast of reality and by faith put ALL my trust in Almighty God and in His Word, promises and ETERNAL saving solution (Mark 11:22, Heb. 11:6)."

We as a nation are too far gone morally to restore this nation and the majority of Americans do not have an ear to hear the moral and social conservatism which our founders stood for and believed.

Many TRUE conservatives are scared and truly frightened to death about what lies ahead for our once great nation. They are trapped in a subjective world view without any ETERNAL or Heavenly objective perspective, which is based on Almighty God and His infallible Word. My dear friend, fear not about what is at hand for our doomed nation and the current over whelming crises of this temporal fallen world, for all these things MUST come to pass as the Lord Jesus said (Matt. 24).

Put NOT your trust in any man or woman in these final hours.

Put NOT your trust in any man or woman in these days, even in the conservative talk radio voices of the right for they are oblivious to the ETERNAL realities and only present a subjective world view for their listeners (Psalm 118:8, 146:3-5, Jer. 17:5, 1 John 2:17). May we always be doing our part for our nation, but never trusting in it in such days. May our focus and strength come ONLY from Almighty God and from His precious promises which are for us in His Holy Word (Rom. 8:28-39, 2 Cor. 1:20). From Heaven's ETERNAL perspective the future is always bright.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand my beloved! May your trust be in the Lord of hosts and this reality be seen ever clearer as we head forth to that very hour?

The Lawless "Poor"


Today in America, the lawless and lazy American victicrats hide behind the title "the poor". These individuals masquerade as victims and seek sympathy from the American people so they can pursue their narcissistic ambitions. The TRUTH and REALITY of this matter is that these have reaped upon themselves the horrific consequences of their LAWLESS and LAZY lifestyles (Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 6:7). These masses have been oppressed by their compounded acts of lawlessness and violence and are never held responsible or accountable to society by the Left and Moderates in Washington. Those who try to overcome this decadent and lawless social wasteland and seek escape from Big Government are always labeled as sell outs by the lazy narcissistic freeloaders of the American people and the White Left. God forbid if we call the lazy... LAZY! The TRUTH always has to be slandered and the testifiers demonized (John 3:19-21). The American Left has done all they can to remove personal responsibility and accountability from these Big Government addicts (red, yellow, black or white) and oppress them with their own misery for their (the Left) own diabolical means. These oppressed victims of the secular state have been made to lose all sense of personal respect, pride, work ethic, charity and giving back to society. They are dominated with an entitlement mentality and are perpetual victims, full of hate, full of wrath and full of vindictiveness.Tragically, in the END these have become callus, subjective and oblivious that even they, the so called "Poor" here in America WILL - in the end - give a FINAL account to Almighty God for their deeds done in the flesh, here in time (Heb. 9:27). It will be in that Last Day that these individuals will NOT be able to play the victim and will give a FULL account before Him (Rev. 20:11-15).

These individuals masquerade as victims and seek sympathy from the American people so they can pursue their narcissistic ambitions.

What is most astounding is that certain individuals who make a good middle class living and have secure jobs live outside their means by excessive traveling, maxing out credit cards, going to casinos, paying alimony, going out to eat 3-4 times a week etc... etc.... These love to also play the victim of life and associate themselves as being "poor". These are victims of their own stupid moral relativistic and liberalized thinking. They have pulled the trigger on themselves but love to have scapegoats for all of their self induced evils. These subjective crybabies love to howl to everyone how tough and miserable their lives are and cry victim and "poverty" at every chance. However, when confronted by the realities in a gracious and sincere manner of their immoral life style choices and objective remedies for their self imposed tyranny, the helping individual is slandered and peppered with a fire of insults, character assassination slanders and hate. These love their self imposed tyranny and are more than willing to remain the fool in their subjective victim-hood minds, for they have convinced and lied to themselves that they are never in the wrong and it is only others who are at fault and the true oppressors not themselves (Prov. 1:7, 13:18, 15:5, 32, Eccl. 7:5, Matt. 6:25).

Indeed there are those who ARE truly poor, who have one pair of clothes, do not have a warm home to live in and are destitute. To these we should do all we can to help them to get back on their feet and teach them the ways of moral living and the knowledge of their Creator.

Indeed there are those who ARE truly poor, who have one pair of clothes, who do not have a warm home to live in and are indeed destitute. To these we should do all we can to help them to get back on their feet and teach them the ways of moral living and the knowledge and TRUE love of their Creator. Most tragically even the majority of these when offered the moral tools, golden rule and Word of Almighty God to better their lives turn their back on it for a life of self indulgence and excess (Rom. 1:18-32). There can never be any peace for any unless one embraces the Prince of Peace and His RIGHTEOUS ways. 6000 years of world history has over abundantly demonstrated that to this fallen world but men still choose THEIR OWN fallen ways and DARKNESS almost every time (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32).


 To these we should do all we can to help them to get back on their feet and teach them the ways of moral living and the knowledge and TRUE love of their Creator.
.
My friend, Almighty God LOVES those who are truly poor! He loves them and has NEVER abandoned them. Sadly, they have abandoned Him. God the Father sent his Son, who became a slave for ALL and to lead ALL men back to God the Father and to deliver humanity from the enslaving, oppressing power of sin and the devil (John 3:16-17; Rom 7:24, Phil 2:4-10, Heb 2:14-15). The Lord Jesus Christ, Almighty God’s Son, was inconceivably rich, yet for our sakes He became poor so that we through His poverty might be rich (2 Cor. 8:9)! Indeed Adam's race are ALL poor in spirit, destitute from the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and in great need for deliverance (Matt. 5:3, John 3:16-17, Rom. 5:12-21, 2 Cor. 8:9).

The Lord Jesus Christ came to liberate ALL those who are truly poor and whose environment is a social wasteland.

My Friend, do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? He has come to set the captives free (John 8:32, 36; Heb. 2:14-15)! Whatever captivity that you may find yourself under today, whatever oppression or addictions bind you, He wants to set you free! The Lord Jesus Christ came to liberate ALL those who are truly poor and whose environment is a social wasteland. He has come to seek and save (deliver) that which was lost (Matt. 18:11; Luke 19:10)! He loves you and wants to deliver you from your transgressions and sins against HIS PERFECTLY RIGHTEOUS CHARACTER. Will you trust Him today? Your destiny is NOT to suffer under the oppression of a fallen world but to be with your Creator FOREVER in ETERNAL bliss, don’t let your narcissistic pride destroy you as it has done countless others (James 2:5; Matt. 5:3). My friend, place your sole trust in Jesus Christ today. My friend, it’s totally up to you. The ball is in your court. You alone will have to make your decision. Will you have Almighty God care for you (Matt. 6:24-33) or Big Government? May you rightly choose Almighty God and His highest and best for you. He will change your life and you will NEVER be the same!

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt 6:33)

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?" (Matt. 6:26)

The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!

Almighty God Created You With Divine Purpose

“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them” (Gen. 1:27). Almighty God made every person either male or female, and everything Almighty God does is ABSOLUTELY COMPLETE and RIGHT. He made absolutely no mistakes at the beginning of the creation (Gen. 1:31). We need to be the person Almighty God made us to be, both by creation and also by redemption: “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7).
.
If a biological male identifies as a female, then he should be allowed to be a female, according to the lawless rational of our ETERNAL Creator rejecting, relativistic, politically correct society.
.
We are now told by government and society that a person’s sex or gender is not determined by biology, but by psychology. Supposedly, each person may decide his or her own gender, based on one’s own subjective sense of identity. If a biological male identifies as a female, then he should be allowed to be a female according to the lawless rational of our ETERNAL Creator rejecting, relativistic, politically correct society. However, in other settings and realms of our culture, world and thinking we do not allow this lawless rational.

 We are now told that a person’s sex or gender is not determined by biology, but by psychology. Supposedly, each person may decide his or her own gender, based on one’s own subjective sense of identity.
.
Some examples; A girl suffering with anorexia could be very thin but she sees herself as fat. To honor such wrong thinking could be disastrous for her. Also, can a Hispanic person or a Caucasian person suddenly declare himself to be Chinese or an Eskimo?  Is our ethnicity based on how we might self-identify? If we can change our birth sex, can we also change our birth date? Can a thirteen-year-old identify as a 21-year-old who would be legally able to vote, drive and drink?  Can a 5'10" basketball player become a 6'7" player just by seeing himself as taller? Would his height delusion or the demanding of society to receive his delusion improve his game?  When we leave the realm of reality, there is no end to the nonsense that results (Rom. 1:18-32). Dear friends, is this not a simple matter to discern? But in the mind of millions it all comes down to one's own personal rebellion, lawless selfish ambitions and narcissistic thinking; that all are expendable and must be forced to keep one's illusion and delusion alive and intact.

We tell Almighty God, I want to be what I want to be and live the way that I want to live and don't you dare judge me or shed any ETERNAL REALITY on my subjective delusion.

Dear friends, does not the world do the very same thing when it comes to the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God? We who are fallen sinners tell Almighty God that we are RIGHTEOUS and DO NOT need a His propitiation and Savior (Psalm 14, John 3:16-21, 1 John 1:8-10)! We tell and demand of Almighty God, I want to be what I want to be and live the way that I want to live and don't you dare judge me or shed any ETERNAL REALITY on my subjective delusion! Dear friends, that mindset is the true fulfillment and heart of all such crazy thinking in our world today!

The all-wise ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator does all things well and for us to lecture Him and condemn Him is indeed the height and zenith of man's insanity and rebellion!

The all-wise ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator does all things well and for us to lecture Him and condemn Him is indeed the height and zenith of man's insanity and rebellion! Now dear friends back to the topic at hand; Our sex is not our own personal choice but rather it is part of God’s perfect plan for our lives for His glory. We need - as human beings - to be content with who we are, because we are very precious in God’s sight. Dear friends, that is the wonder of it all; that Almighty God loved us so much that He sent His Son to be our propitiation for our sins and seeks to redeem us to be Whom He intended us to be from the beginning of creation (Gen. 1:30, John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4). Almighty God loves us ETERNALLY to much to compromise and allow us to live in our sinful delusion and to deceive us that we are fit for ETERNITY when we are fully not.

Almighty God loves us ETERNALLY to much to compromise and allow us to live in our sinful delusion and to deceive us that we are fit for ETERNITY.

Do you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior? To know Him is to know forgiveness, pardon, REALITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS! If you do not, we would like for you to do our Gospel of John Challenge that you can see for yourself how much Jesus loves you!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Our Hope and Future is IN the ETERNAL Person of Jesus Christ!












Beloved, Do not let your hearts be troubled by the affairs of this world or the circumstances of this temporal life, BELIEVE IN Jesus and place ALL your trust IN Him, for it is IN Jesus Christ ALONE that there is EVERLASTING HOPE and FULL ASSURANCE (Acts 4:12, Rom. 1:16, Col. 2:2, 2 Tim. 1:12). Do your part to the fullest as an America in these last days; all the while knowing that NOTHING will stop the Rapture of the Church, Day of Lawlessness, the Lord Jesus’ glorious second coming, the establishment of His 1000 year reign in TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS (Dan. 2:43-44,;7:13-14; Isa. 11) and then the ETERNAL State of the Kingdom of God (Rev. 21; 22:1-5)!

Dear friends, be sure to see the BIG ETERNAL PICTURE first then all will fall into place! ETERNITY with our Savior is our future, NOT this fallen demonic wasteland called planet earth. Our future is in a Person, the Person of Almighty God the Son.









Dear friends, be sure to see the BIG ETERNAL PICTURE first, then all will fall into place! ETERNITY with our Savior is our future, NOT this fallen demonic wasteland called planet earth. Our future is in a Person, the ETERNAL Person of Almighty God the Son (John 6:35; 11:25, Rom. 8:28-39, 1 Cor. 1:30-31; 13:1-4, Eph. 5:25-27, Col. 1:27, 1 Thes. 4:13-18, John 3:1-4, Rev. 1:5)! Oh Beloved! This wondrous REALITY and TRUTH will indeed set us free from this world's temporal bondage and from Satan and his many faceted straw men, which are set up out there to distract us from all our promises in our ETERNAL Savior  (John 8:32, 36, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Col 3:1-4)! Beloved, let us use all of these things to draw us EVER closer to our Savior and NEVER let our heart be troubled, for we are safe as can be in His risen glorified nailed pierced hands FOREVERMORE (Matt. 28:20, Luke 12:7, John 10:28, 14:18, Rom. 8:28-39, Rev. 1:17-18)! Rejoice and praise Almighty God that our hope in such days is in the ETERNAL Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us (John 14:1-3, Rom. 8:28-29, Eph. 5:25-27)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
