Hunters of ETERNAL Vainity

...
The unchecked passions of man are an appetite full of destruction, unsatisfied and unstopped by the gratification of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-21). The unbridled passions of sexually driven men and women create a tsunami of social discord and physiological disorders which spill over into our societies and communities (Rom. 1:18-32). The number one addiction in America today is not cocaine, it is not alcohol, it is not marijuana, it is not heroin, it is not Oxycontin, etc. The number one American addition is this unbridled beast of Eros-erotic love, i.e., sexual addiction (James 1:14-15). This Eros beast is currently reigning supreme and dominant in America today in every facet of life, culture and society, mainly due to the EXPONENTIAL advances in technology, countless media outlets and easy accessibility. The news of late across our land today has been filled with this vice and its effects on its victims and perpetrators.

Man is always hunting for a black cat, in a dark room, with black painted walls, using a broken flash light and the cat is NOT there! Indeed vanity of vanities!

In a vain effort by man, he is always hunting for fulfillment for his soul in evil vices and desires which can NEVER bring lasting satisfaction and ETERNAL peace (Eccl. Psalm 14, Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 5:19-21, Rev. 9:18-21). Instead of the world seeking their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator in Spirit and in TRUTH, man has become hunters of ETERNAL vanity, which there is NEVER any tangible fulfilling prey (Psalm 39:5, Eccl. 1:1-3, 14; Isa. 6:6, Jer. 2:12-13, Rev. 20:11-15). Man is always hunting for a black cat, in a dark room, with black painted walls, using a broken flash light and the black cat is NOT there! Indeed my friends, VANITY of VANITIES!

The love of God ONLY gives and ONLY seeks that which is the highest and best for its object of love based and rooted in MORAL ABSOLUTES and ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and TRUTH.

In light of our day, we pray that all would seek TRUE fulfillment in their ETERNAL Creator in Spirit and in TRUTH; and to know the agape LOVE of Almighty God that is found ONLY in His Son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17)? God so LOVED you that he sent His Son to pay the price for your transgressions against the RIGHTEOUS standards of Almighty God (Rom. 10:4; 1 Peter 3:18). The love of God ONLY gives and ONLY seeks that which is the highest and best for its object of love based and rooted in MORAL ABSOLUTES and ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and TRUTH. My dear friend, I do not know how to say anything more wonderful than that! The one true God and Creator of the Universe truly LOVES you (1 John 4:10)! My dear friends, follow the One who LOVED you and GAVE Himself to you that you might be with Him FOREVERMORE in the ETERNAL LOVE of  Father (Gal. 2:20). Place your trust in Him today and FOREVERMORE will you sing, "All you need is the ETERNAL God's love!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Lucifer - The Father of the Slander Tactic









Lucifer, the Son of the Morning, the greatest creation of Almighty God, is the progenitor and father of the slander tactic (John 8:44; Ezek. 28:12, 15).

He is also called the Father of Lies, Satan (adversary), the Devil (slanderer), the Great Dragon (a consuming dreadful violent monster), and that Old Serpent (cunning and crafty for evil designs) - see Rev. 12:9.
.
These various names for Lucifer describe his godless character and actions against Almighty God, his Creator, and against God's ETERNAL Person and RIGHTEOUSNESS.

These various names given to Lucifer describe his godless character and actions against Almighty God, his Creator, and against God's ETERNAL Person and RIGHTEOUSNESS. These descriptions are given for us ("sons of Adam") to help us better understand who this Tyrant of Lawlessness truly is.
.
In eternity past Lucifer enjoyed a relationship to Almighty God. I truly believe there was a point in his existence where he loved and adored the Triune God with all his heart. He had the chief place as Protector of the Holiness of God (Ezek. 28:14), and he was the worship leader and choir director of Heaven (Ezek. 28:13). Lucifer enjoyed all the heavenly blessings of his rank and position. As events proceeded, though, there came a time when he became proud, arrogant, envious and bitter. In his foolish heart he sought the place of his Eternal Creator and Sovereign for himself, and he led a delusional rebellion against Almighty God in which he and his followers were cast out (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:15-18; Jude 1:6; Rev. 12:4).
.
Lucifer could have remained in his highly honored position indefinitely, enjoying the eternal blessings and fellowship with His Creator. In his madness, however, Lucifer chose rather to abandon the confines of absolute reality and perfection for a vain existence in the darkness of make-believe and delusion. In his vain attempt to exalt and preserve himself at all costs, he rejected and abandoned all that was real, becoming a murderer of souls, a tyrant of humanity, a despot to the fallen angelic host and a mastermind of slander, false truths and darkness. He designed the slander tactic to deflect any righteous criticism and to distract attention from his lawless activity and diabolical intentions. Lucifer is now known as the Prince of Darkness (error, delusion and vain imagination), for this is his reality (Isaiah 14:16-17; John 8:44; 1 John 3:8; Rev. 12:9).
.
In his vain attempt to exalt and preserve himself at all costs, he [Lucifer]....designed the slander tactic to deflect any righteous criticism and to distract attention from his lawless activity and diabolical intentions.
.
He is the adversary (Satan) against ALL reality, truth and eternal absolutes, i.e., all that pertains to Almighty God. He is the slanderer (the Devil) against all those who stand in his way, especially those who trust and believe in Almighty God in Spirit and Truth, and so are His children and followers (John 8:44).
.
Lucifer's minions abound everywhere today in the American Mainstream Media, Washington, local principalities, Hollywood, etc. They unknowingly do his will. He knows how to maneuver and appeal to our carnal (fleshly) fallen nature which is governed by the five physical senses (sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing). The secular liberal mindset is the most open to Satan's suggestions for a Godless trend-setting agenda. They do his will quite readily because they are the most susceptible to this kind of influence (1 Tim 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:1-7; 2 Thess. 2:10-12).

.
As these days are coming to a great climax called the Tribulation, a period of lawlessness and the Day of Almighty God’s wrath, expect the slanderous activity of godless men and women to intensify at "breakneck" speeds (Matt. 24; 2 Tim. 3:1-7).

There is only One who is completely trustworthy and true (Titus 1:2; Heb. 6:18). There is only One who is worthy of all praise and honor (Rev. 4:11; 5:9). There is only One who, no matter how much He is blasphemed and slandered, will always will be vindicated in the endlessness of forever (Isa. 45:23; Rom. 14:11; Rev. 22:1-5). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? In these last days MAKE SURE and CERTAIN (i.e., with no doubt whatsoever) that you truly know the One who in the end will be victorious forevermore.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What American Political Party is Right?


















At present in America, a great battle and political war of ideologies is raging for the heart and soul of this nation.

With their  lawlessness  moral relativity and socialistic, big-government/ nanny-state ideology, the Left says, "We are right!"
.
With their compromise of core values and lack of rooted principles, the Moderates say, “We are right!"

With their morally conservative principles and small-government philosophy, the Right says, "We are right!"

My dear friends, who is really right? Well... I would personally say with all authority and passion true conservatism is the best ideology for fallen man in this fallen world. As a matter of fact... I know it is with all of my being. True conservatism was our Founding Father's belief and vision for our nation and its posterity.; but the truth of the matter is None are right. before Almighty God and the light of ETERNITY, ALL these political ideologies are flawed (some way more than others) and in the end and left unto themselves are doomed to stand before the ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (1 John 2:17, Rev. 21:1,4)

The Bible states, But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:21-23).

What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one (Romans (3:10-12).

"For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth". (Rom. 10:2-4)

That's right! In the light of ETERNITY it really doesn't matter which American political party you belong to or affiliation you have. What ALL humans (Left, moderate, Conservatives, religious, non-religious, etc...) need is the perfected RIGHTEOUSNESS demanded by Almighty God and His Saving solution for their soul (John 3!6-17, Acts 4:12, Acts 16:28-30, 1 Tim. 2:3-6). "ALL" have fallen short of the Glory of God! "ALL" have violated and trespassed against the RIGHTEOUS demands of their Creator! "ALL" absolutely need the RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God requires and "ALL" do not have it!

We can endlessly talk and argue about the virtues and evils of various political ideologies and philosophies pertaining to this life, but to be ready for ETERNITY one must posses the RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God requires. Today ALL on the Left and the majority of those on the Right DO NOT offer any solutions for the personal demands of ETERNITY.
.
Today ALL on the Left and the majority of those on the Right DO NOT offer any solutions for the personal demands of ETERNITY.

The bottom line regarding the question on the table is this: The only One who is RIGHT and PERFECT is none other than Almighty God! Only Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS, i.e., Right! Man and his thoughts - no matter how seemingly good and noble - are not not EVER could be. Man is not perfect, but is a continual and perpetual violator of the Laws and Absolutes of His Creator (Rom. 7:7-25).

You see, it doesn't matter to which political party you belong or affiliation you have. Ask yourself this sober question: Am I absolutely perfect and sinless? Realistically and honestly, everyone’s answer to this question should be a resounding, “No!” This means that you are in desperate need for a Savior to deliver you from yourself with all of its imperfections and sins (no matter how few these may be, or however well you may compare with your neighbors, friends, family, foes, etc.). Almighty God has provided a PERFECT Savior for you if you would only receive him. Almighty God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be your Savior. ALL ideologies and philosophies apart from the absolute TRUTH of God's Word are ETERNALLY bankrupt. However... in light of our bankruptness, Almighty God has AWESOME good news (the Gospel) for you and for the ENTIRE world!

The Bible states, "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).

"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).

Almighty God sent His Son to be our Savior. In Christ alone is found the perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS which Almighty God demands of us and has provided it for us in Jesus Christ. The Bible states:

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

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:30-31).

My dear friend, Do you personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? In the face of today's many ills and instabilities, may you be objective in the light of Almighty God's PERFECT Word and humble yourself before His RIGHTEOUS presence. May you choose to consider and then place your FULL trust and faith in the only RIGHT and Perfect One and His saving solution for your fallen humanity. May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Are You A Zero?


My dear friend, try this experiment if you will. Multiply ALL of your worldly and godless delusions, aspirations, dreams and wants times the number zero and see what you come up with? For ALL that is done outside of  Almighty God's saving solution for this world in the end will end up as absolute vanity and an ETERNAL zero in the light of ETERNITY (Rev. 20:11-15, 21:8, 22:11).

Almighty God's Word states;

God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth (John 17:17).

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever (Psalm 119:160).

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? To know Him is to know REALITY. To know Him is to know Truth. May you be sure that your "ideology" and "REALITY" is rooted in the absolute REALITY of Almighty God and His never-changing Word. Your whole ETERNITY depends on it.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Going For The Gold, Silver and Precious Stones for Almighty God's Glory!

.

















In the "spirit" of the Olympics; many have trained and have anticipated this present week for years. These individuals have worked extremely hard and have made countless sacrifices to maintain their competitive edge. Finally, all of their hard work and effort has paid off and they are ready to compete. These individuals have subjected their bodies under strict disciple with one goal and one prize in their vision, the gold medal. Oh beloved, how much more should Almighty God's children (John 1:12) run the race - which is before them - for ETERNAL glory and a ETERNAL prize.

As believers in Christ, we can by faith go for the gold and win the victory through the many faceted adversities and calamities that comes our way.

At Christ's Judgment Seat for the saints the rewards will be handed out and the "well done My faithful servant" will be given to those who have run the race and went for the gold for Almighty God's glory (2 Cor 3:10-20).

Sad to say, many will be ashamed in His Presence in that day. They will have NEGLECTED their Heavenly calling for the temporal delights and comforts that this fallen world has to offer. They will be saved by fire but with nothing to show for God's glory (1 Cor. 3:12-18).

Going for the Gold for Almighty God's Glory!
.
The victory is gained when a person puts his or her faith and trust in the Person of Almighty God. As believers in Christ, we can by faith go for the gold and win the victory through the many faceted adversities and calamities that comes our way. We know that God indeed loves us and has a wonderful plan and purpose in our lives to make us winners, not losers.

Listen to this promise: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:26).

Almighty God has a wonderful plan for you and wants you to be a winner!

Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings - Col 3:1-5, Eph 1:3)!

In these last days may we be strong and of good courage and have faith in Almighty God. May we see - with the eyes of faith - past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a conqueror in Christ and for Christ. May we go for all that Almighty God has called us to be for His Glory.

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Plil. 4:13)!

"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses" (1Tim 6:12)!

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14)!

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 15:57)!

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us" (Romans 8:37)!

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Cor.10:31)!

"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Cor. 1:20)!

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9)!

"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing" (2 Tim 4:8)!

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14).

Remember, Beloved: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world [i.e., Satan and his minions]" (1 John 4:4).

Now go for the gold beloved for Almighty God's glory!! God speed!!
