The Delusion of Self Righteousness


Read these horrifically sobering words that the Lord Jesus will share with those in that Day when He comes to set up His Kingdom on earth (Matt 25:31-46).

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" (or lawlessness, Matt 7:21-23).

Read what also the Bible teaches about what will NOT be in God’s Holy Heaven.

"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood (imperfect, unregenerate humanity) cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption" (1 Cor. 15:50).

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God" (1 Cor. 6:9-10).

"And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life" (Rev. 21:27).

"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie" (Rev. 22:14-15).

Nothing that violates or transgresses Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES will enter into God’s ETERNAL abode. My friend, we are doomed if left to our merits and godless unregenerated state. The Apostle Paul (Saul of Tarsus) cried out, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Romans 7:24).

The Apostle Peter cried, "Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord" (Luke 5:8b).

Isaiah exclaimed, Then said I, "Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts" (Isaiah 6:5).

However real and bad the condition of man is, dear reader, the Bible contains this wonderful promise:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

"Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father" (Gal. 1:4).

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18).

"And he is the propitiation (satisfaction for the righteous demands of Almighty God) for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world" (1 John 2:2).

"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth" (Romans 10:4).

Only in Christ is found the RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s Holy and Perfect Heaven. We can NEVER illegally enter into Almighty God's holy Heaven. It is only through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father. It is in Christ that we have true sonship (John 1:12; Gal. 3:26) and citizenship (Eph. 2:19; Philip. 3:20) in God’s glorious righteous Heaven FOREVER (Rev 22:5).

We can NEVER illegally enter Almighty God's holy Heaven. It is only through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father.

That no flesh should glory in His presence. 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 alone that we have a bold access into the presence of God and gain valid citizenship into His RIGHTEOUS Heaven. My friend, 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. Place your trust in Him today. You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

This July Fourth, Almighty God Has Shed His Grace On Our Land - But For A Moment

Last year in light of everything, I truly believed that that Fourth of July could have very well been our last as a nation. All events and things of that hour pointed to that thought and I and many others were in prayer seeking Almighty God's will for such days ahead. However in the grace of Almighty God He has spared this nation last November for a moment and here we are in 2017 to reflect and remember that it is He that governs in the affairs of men as Benjamin Franklin of old once stated so wisely!

 "I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?" Benjamin Franklin

Watching president Trump's speech last Saturday night I was totally blown away with how much "God" he put into it and how strong his message was. Trump's speech was "old school America" before the secularist took over our nation and I loved it! Politicians usually love to generalize Almighty God during speeches and show their hypocritical piety but with president Trump he seemed very sincere. It is true that this event was sponsored by evangelicals and that many evangelicals were in the audience, but President Trump seemed to know and believe that America without Almighty God is nothing. Trump has totally surrounded and embraced evangelical leaders who have a saving relationship to Almighty God through Jesus Christ and to me that speaks volumes about many things. A man is known by his actions and deeds, not by his words and president Trump's actions and deeds for restoring America speak volumes in light of the last 16 years of this nation; so why would any believer hate him and not pray for him?

 Almighty God sets up kings and rulers in His ETERNAL sovereignty and will use any to fulfill His good will and at this moment in time Almighty God has chosen Donald Trump; like it or not!

During his speech, President Trump used a title in which many politicians despise, but it is the title that our founding father's used when speaking and addressing the Almighty, our Creator! I personally have never been a Trump fan but have to say since his inauguration I have become a big supporter of his and a fan in a lot of ways. I know that that statement will not rub well with many but I have never seen a president be so fearless and bold and seek to make things right again after the attempted  godless coup under Alinsky's master, Obama and the American Left. Trump is just a man, a very unpolished man in many regards. He is hated by both sides and by many but Almighty God has heard His peoples prayers and has given us this man to slow down our national destruction; and for a moment Almighty God has shed His grace on our nation; a nation which was over last November, a nation which is at war with Him and His RIGHTEOUS Person, a nation which in many ways hates and abhors Him. Almighty God sets up kings and rulers in His ETERNAL sovereignty and will use any to fulfill His good will and at this moment in time Almighty God has chosen Donald Trump; like it or not (Dan. 2:21; 4:17, Rev. 4-5)! Many believers today need to get over Trump's election and their earthly aspirations for this fallen nation here in time and use this window granted by Almighty God to seek Almighty God's ETERNAL will and ETERNAL country (Matt. 6:33; Heb. 11:16, Rev. 21;22:1-5) and get out the ETERNAL Gospel of Jesus Christ to a dying nation and world! We need to pray for President's Trump's salvation and that of Americans as we wait for the trumpet to blow!

 Many believers today need to get over Trump's election and their earthly aspirations for this fallen nation here in time and use this window granted by Almighty God to seek Almighty God's ETERNAL will and get out the ETERNAL Gospel of Jesus Christ to a dying nation and world.

As we seek to "Make America Great Again" with precious little time left on the play clock, we need to "Wake Up America Again" to the ETERNAL saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; for that is the calling from on High to every blood brought believer in this hour (2 Cor. 5:17-21). We are to be believers in Jesus Christ first and Americans second and when this Divine order is kept rightly America will prosper as NEVER before! I personally believe that our nation was not spared last November to "Make America Great Again" by national sovereignty, economic growth and prosperity; but for God's people to diligently and prayerfully get out Almighty God's saving message to all of Adam's race (John 3:16-17, Rom. 5:11-21).


I personally believe that our nation was not spared last November to "Make America Great Again" by national sovereignty, economic growth and prosperity; but for God's people to diligently and prayerfully get out Almighty God's saving message to all of Adam's race!

We as believers need to redeem the time given to us from Heaven as never before as that Day approaches (Eph. 5:15-16)! It was the prayers of this nation's saints to Almighty God that has spared this nation in November (Dan. 4:17) and it should be the desire of all these praying saints that a GREAT spiritual revival and turning to Almighty God in Spirit and TRUTH occur before the Day of the Lord arrives! We as American believers need to pray for Almighty God's will in this hour for our nation and not for our nation's desires for a  prosperity that seeks to exclude the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God! May we as believers in Jesus Christ be focused on our Heavenly calling first and for Almighty God's will first in our lives and then the rest for America will fall into place.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The 28 Principles of Liberty

Remembering Our Founding Fathers on the Forth of July

Today many in the United States have been crying out to our past Presidents and Government (i.e., Washington D.C.) to do more and more to fix our national ills. The notion that Big Government has all our answers and the solutions we need in this very chaotic and unstable world is fairy tale.

Our Founding Fathers wisely understood that the less power government possessed the better off we as Americans would be. Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider. If present today, Our Founders Fathers would be fighting tooth and nail against this secular socialistic aggression.

Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider.

The present statist or U.S. constitutional apostate is rooted in the subjective liberal personal belief that Fallen Man through and by the out working of Big Government or "Socialism" can bring security and comfort to its inhabitants. This secular ideology has failed every time it has been implemented. In fact there is no government or political ideology that can ever usher in a world Utopia of perfection and bliss. Those who believe so are oblivious to the fallen nature of man and record of history (Rom 5:12-19).
.
Faith of Our Fathers













Our Founding Fathers knew this reality to be true. They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Heb 2:14,15). The rejection of these heavenly principles would only lead to the continual out working of godless tyrants and oppressors in this temporal fallen world.

They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God.

The outworking of all nations - along with their godless ideologies of big controlling government - are only full of good intentions and oppressive desires. The masses that have fallen prey to these are living in drunken fictional delusion with no deliverance in sight. (Rom 3:23, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev 17: 1-2).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions). Conservative values are a must and are the best ideology for here in time but God's Messiah/Christ is absolutely essential for Almighty God's Holy (Perfect) ETERNAL Heaven. The Conservative and Liberal ideologies of this hour can never offer the absolute righteousness required of Almighty God and those ETERNAL heavenly necessities which are only found in Almighty God's Son, Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:30).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions).

The Bible states in Galatians 5:20-21, "Now the works of the flesh (our fallen humanity) are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Also in Matthew 15:17-20, "And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man."

The Fallen nature of man can never bring about true peace. God's word states in Isaiah 57:20, "But the wicked (unsaved humanity) are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." This social gospel of man is in direct opposition to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible states in Roman 14:17, "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."

and also in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

One must choose who they will put their trust in, Big Government or Almighty God. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

and in Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." To obtain true righteousness and peace one must know the Prince of Peace, The Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one obtain this reality.

The Bible states in Galatians 5:22, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Do you know the Prince of Peace the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior?

The Bible states in Isaiah 45:21, 22, "there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

also in John 1:12, "But as many as received him (Jesus Christ), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"
.
As we celebrate the Forth of July here in America, may we remember our American Founding Fathers vision and all that they have bestowed upon this nation. Their incredible Divine wisdom, selfless labors, enduring hardships and their reverence and great admiration towards Almighty God the King and Savior of the nations. They are indeed worthy of remembrance in America on this Forth.

The Kingdom of God is at hand!
