Black Friday and the American Godless Holiday Season









Well, here we go kid-do’s… After the majority of Americans concluded THEIR “godless” Thanksgiving without Almighty God and ALL the realities of Who He is, which is dictated by His HOLY WORD it is “Black Friday”. America’s Thanksgiving and Holiday season now consists of thanking THEIR god’s of self narcissism, human efforts and personal ambitions, while of course eating, drinking and watching football. My friends don’t get me wrong… there is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying a fine diner with your loved ones, eating good food, stuffing yourself, watching football, exchanging gifts, rejoicing over the work of you hands and even trying to save a few bucks on material things when its done with thanksgiving to Almighty God (1 Cor. 10:31), but the whole mood now in this country at this time of the year is to serve self and in some places it is very subtle and hard to see.

We as a nation have rejected Almighty God’s SAVING message to us and to the world that Almighty God sent His Son to deliver us from our sins.

Godless living affects the majority of Americans today. We as a nation have rejected Almighty God’s SAVING message to us and to the world that Almighty God sent His Son to deliver us from our sins (John 3:16-17).

This “Christmas” message is now drowned out by worldly self interest and personal materialism. Indeed, Satan has won a great victory in replacing the realities of one’s ETERNAL needs for temporal and fading wants (1 John 2:15-17). Whether one is a conservative, moderate, liberal or a progressive commie or whether one is of the lazy poor, the true poor, the middle class, the rich or the filthy rich, the bottom line and common denominator is self generated interest which excludes our Creator and our true ETERNAL needs (Matt. 15:7-9, Rom.1:18-32, 2 Tim 3:2).

Anyone who lives their existence here in time that EXCLUDES Almighty God our Creator, His saving grace and Savior, His Word and sound biblical doctrine is one of utter futility, vanity and is self centered.

What do I mean by serving self? I am sure for many reading this assessment might think I have gone way over the top on this. Well hear me out… The “bottom line” of what I am trying to state is that ANY life (i.e., one’s brief existence here in time), whether conservative, moderate, liberal or a progressive commie, whether one is of the lazy poor, the true poor, the middle class, the rich or the filthy rich that lives out their existence here in time that EXCLUDES Almighty God our Creator, His saving grace and Savior, His Word and sound biblical doctrine is one of utter futility, vanity and is self centered (Eccl., Mark 24:35-39, Rom. 1:20-22). It is the wide road which leads to damnation and ETERNAL ruin and it is named the “do as thou wilt” highway (Matt. 7:13-14, Rev. 20:11-15). This road ends with its travelers doing a Thelma and Louise into ETERNAL damnation and ruin. It would be an awesome thing to interview many of life’s travelers who have taken this narcissistic highway to ruin. I am sure that they would testify in the end that their brief godless existence was NOT worth the ETERNAL consequences (Luke 16:19-31, John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15).

This road ends with its travelers doing a Thelma and Louise into ETERNAL damnation and ruin!


Nothing in this brief fallen world can EVER fill the ETERNAL void of humanity for we were designed to house our ETERNAL Creator (Eccl. 3:11, Rom. 11:33). Go ahead my friend, STUFF IT with all your heart desires (virtuous or vice); Sex, drugs, wine, women, song, IPods, flat screens, new cars, houses, lands and gold, purpose, adventure, glory, whatever; indulge my friend until you possess the WHOLE ENTIRE world (Matt.16:26)! It will NEVER satisfy and in the end you will be as Solomon of old and profess that "ALL is vanity" (Eccl.1:1-5)! You will end up as the rich fool who was building barns only to lose it all in the end (Luke 12:15-23).

"Jesus stated, I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

God’s Word states; "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).

It is your Creator that loves you with an EVERLASTING love and has ONLY glorious things for you FOREVERMORE (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5). That is why you were created. To know God and to enjoy Him FOREVER! Oh the FOOL who would rather seek vain temporal worldly glory and earthly possessions in a narcissistic delusional reality (Luke 12:20, James 4:14, 5:1-5, Rev. 20:11-15).

As we head into another narcissistic godless Christ rejecting “holiday season” may you be sure that you personally know the very One who left Heaven’s glory and put on humanity so He might die on the cross to pay for the sins of the world (John 1:14, 3:16-17, Phil.2:5-10, Heb.10:4-14). That is what our existence (born - die) here is all about!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

I agree 100%. Actually I have to admit that I very rarely disagree with any of your articles for im also a christian.I just wanted to say that and often I wondered who writes these articles. I have a request if I may. Pray for me and wife and daughter that The Lord would open the eyes of our hearts to serve Him .

Matthew,

Thanks for your reply. Your desire is a great request and it is Almighty God's great pleasure to do that for you and your family (2 Thess. 1:11)! He will do it but… you must as we all do apply faith to God's Word in good times and in bad and then watch what the Savior will do in your hearts (Rom. 5: 1-5, 8:28-39, Heb. 11:6, James 1:1-8). When we personally know what God has done for us; delivering us from ETERNAL damnation, redeeming us, forgiving us and saving us we can truly NEVER be the same (1 Cor. 1:30-31, Eph. 2:1-22, Re. 22:1-5). You - as we all who know the Lord - have been given a Divine calling to be Almighty God’s ambassador lay hold of it and run my friend for God’s glory (2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, be redeeming the time!

Eph. 5:16-17!

God speed!

You are confused on God himself coming to earth in the guise of Jesus. I hope you will study the shaky doctrine of the trinity. Jesus, the Lord Messiah, didn't pre-exist his Immaculate Conception other than in the spoken word of God saying that such a savior would be born dating back to the Garden of Eden.

This is why Jesus says that he was before Abraham, by saying this he is laying claim as Messiah.

My brother, I propose a different Jesus is being preached today and see little of the preaching of the Kingdom of God which Jesus himself preached which leads me to postulate that a different gospel is also being preached, today.

David,

I see it has been three years since you posted your reply above, but in case you stop by and read comments here I wanted to respond to your remarks.

"...the shaky doctrine of the trinity"? There is not one thing shaky about the Trinity other than the word itself is not used in the Bible. Jesus most definitely "pre-exist[ed]" his life here on earth, and Jesus most definitely is God incarnate.

"This is why Jesus says that he was before Abraham, by saying this he is laying claim as Messiah." What part of Jesus own words so totally confuse you that you need to give them some other meaning? Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!" In that profound sentence, spoken by Jesus Himself, He clearly states He was there before Abraham was born -- AND -- he says "I AM!" Remember when Moses asked God what His Name is/who to tell His people He is when they asked? And God answered, "I AM that I AM." Jesus used the same title for Himself as God used because Jesus is God.

Yes, you are definitely being taught a different Jesus than the One clearly found in God's Word, the Bible. The doctrine of the Trinity is as solid as all of God's truth. Again, the word trinity is not found in the Bible, but the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is without a doubt glorified from beginning to end.

I pray the Lord opens the eyes of your heart and calls you into His loving care.
