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!

Possessing Divine REALITY!

Today there are very little possessors of the Word of God who can speak with this POWER and AUTHORITY, who Almighty God the Holy Spirit has done a mighty work in for the glory of Almighty God. We are to not just see the events and things of this world from a subjective earthly realm but from a Heavenly ETERNAL perspective and to be possessors and victors of these wondrous TRUTHS and REALITIES (1 Cor. 15:57, 2 Cor. 2:14, Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4, 1 John 5:1-5)!

Today there are very little possessors of the Word of God who can speak with this POWER and AUTHORITY, who Almighty God the Holy Spirit has done a mighty work in for the glory of Almighty God.

Dearly beloved, we would like to encourage you and ourselves to be possessors of the Word of God and not just a bunch of christian parrots that lack wisdom and depth and are just quoters of Biblical TRUTHS. May we desire with ALL sincerity the maximum will of God for our lives with all our heart, soul and mind! In these last Days may we who truly know the Savior be fully surrendered to the will of God for our life and be absolutely filled with the Holy Spirit (He reigning supreme) and His leading (Rom. 8:26-29, Eph. 4:30, 5:18, 1 Thess. 5:19)! Our labors are NEVER in vain in the Lord, but have ETERNAL reward and glory and in the end the smile and joy of our Heavenly Father, our Savior and the Holy Spirit with the pleasing words, Well done my child! Oh my beloved, may it be so!!! Unto Victory for the Father's glory!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

This April Fool's Day, What Kind of Fool are You?

Today, in America, on April Fool's Day, we have no shortage of fools. That is an obvious no-brainer.

A fool is - in the Biblical sense - a stupid, wicked (especially impious), or vile person; fool (-ish, -ish man, -ish woman). A scoffer, blockhead or reprobate, a despiser of Almighty God and all that is truly good.

The secular definition of a fool is: one who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding.

In both cases, we see that the fool is a sound rejecter of the Laws of Nature, and of Nature's God.
n
What is Foolishness to Whom?
.
Conservatives, conservatism, and the adherence to and acknowledgment of natural and moral laws are absolute foolishness to the secular-progressive, liberal mindset (a.k.a. “the Left”).

On the other hand, the abandonment or rejection of natural and moral laws (social/ fiscal), crucial conservative ideals and their foundational roots (found in Judeo/ Christian absolutes) are absolute foolishness to the conservative mindset (a.k.a. “the Right”).
.
The height of foolishness is found where these two enemies have a common bond uniting them together... UNBELIEF!
.
The height of foolishness is found where these two enemies have a common bond uniting them together... unbelief. Their “common thread” is in standing against foundational Biblical Christianity and its teachings of Jesus Christ. Both the Left and the Right have their own personal perceptions of what “Christianity” is, but they reject in unison - the Left exceedingly far more than many on the Right - the total authority and reality of Almighty God’s divinely inspired book, the Bible, and its call to repentance and salvation by grace alone which comes solely by faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1, Eph. 2:8-9). They outright reject Almighty God and His ETERNAL SPIRITUAL ABSOLUTES for man and seek to make them common and irrelative. These foundational TRUTHS and REALITIES they WILL NOT receive (Matt 7:24-27; John 14:17, 1 Cor. 1:18). The bottom line is that both of these groups reject the ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and are doomed in light of their ETERNAL futures (Matt. 6:33, John 3:5, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 15:50, Rev. 20: 11-15; 21:27).

An Example - The Political Parties of Jesus’ Day

Historically speaking, the Sadducees and the Pharisees of Jesus day were bitter political enemies, but when it came to the reality of who Jesus Christ was, both groups united together to crucify and rid themselves of their chief rival (Matt. 3:7; 16:1, 6, 12; 22:34; Mark 14:10, 53; 15:10-11; Luke 23:10; John 7:48).

That Sadducees were "the Left" of their day, rejecting the Holy Scriptures and a great majority of the Biblical truths, much as liberal, “professing” Christians do today (Mark 12:18; Luke 23:10; Acts 5:17; 23:8).

The Pharisees were the conservative political party in Israel at the time of the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, adhering to the moral and natural laws rooted in Mosaic Law, and promoting salvation and spirituality based in traditional fables and legalism (law keeping). (Matt. 5:20; 12:14; 15:1, 12; 23:2; Mark 7:5; Luke 5:21; 11:43; 15:2; 18:4).

Who Are the Fools in Almighty God’s Eyes?
.
Let's take a look at what the Bible, Almighty God’s Word, states about the fools who reject Almighty God and His Absolute Authority.

"The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good" (Palms 14:1).

'Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:21-22).

"And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it' (Matt. 7:26-27).

"And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?' (Luke 12:18-20)

"As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly" (Prov. 26:11).

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Cor. 2:14).

Fools for the King of Kings
.
The world today labels those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and who are His ministers (servants) as fools. These slander and scoff at their evangelistic message of ETERNAL salvation and the very heart of the Gospel message that, Christ died, was buried and ROSE again as the Holy Scriptures testify (1 Cor 15:1-4).

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence" (1 Cor. 1:27-29).

"We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honorable, but we are despised" (1 Cor. 4:10).

"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13).

"Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness" (1 Cor. 3:18-19).

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?" (1 Cor. 1:18-20)

Are You Foolish Enough to Follow Christ or Foolish Enough to Reject Him?
.
Almighty God’s Infallible Word sets before all just who are the fools and who are the wise. The wisdom and rudiments of this world are passing away, and only those things wrought (done) in and for Christ will abide FOREVER (1 Cor. 7:31; 2 Peter 3:13; 1 John 2:17). It is up to us to humble ourselves before Almighty God’s ETERNAL Person, wisdom and righteousness, and to be obedient to His command to repent of our transgressions against His ETERNAL spiritual absolutes and natural laws (Acts 17:13; Romans 3:23; 10:2-4; James 1:21).

All will have to give an account to Him in that Day for what we have done in our lives (Matt. 12:36; 1 Peter 4:4-5). If we think that we in our own merit can stand before Him blameless and perfect, we will indeed be the greatest of fools for all ETERNITY (Rom. 14:10-11; Eph. 2:8-9; Rev. 20:11-15).
.
If we think that we in our own merit can stand before Him blameless and perfect, we will indeed be the greatest of fools for all ETERNITY.
,;
Almighty God saw our desperate need for His RIGHTEOUSNESS and for deliverance from the tyranny and bondage of our transgressions (Rom. 7:24-25). These have separated us from Him and have brought His wrath upon us (John 3:36; Gal. 1:4; Eph. 2:1-2, 14).

In His great ETERNAL love Almighty God sent forth His only Son from Heaven’s glory to pay the price for our transgressions, to be our propitiation and to rescue us from the ETERNAL ramifications of our transgressions and godless folly (John 3:16-17; Rom. 7:24-25; Gal. 1:4; Eph 2:14; 1 John 2:2).

If this is you, my dear friend, may you cast off your foolish pride and receive God’s Savior of your soul, the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone can deliver us from the wrath to come (Acts 4:12). He alone can deliver you from the ETERNAL judgment on transgressors (Acts 10:43; Gal. 1:4; 1 Tim. 2:5). He alone truly loves you and has given Himself to be your propitiation to satisfy all of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS and ETERNAL absolutes (Rom. 3:25; 4:25; 5:8; 8:32; Eph. 5:2; 1 John 2:2; 4:10).

Do NOT be a fool and die in your trespasses and sins. Almighty God has sent His son to make you wise indeed!
/
"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. (1 Cor. 1:30)"
,
May you place your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Biblical Objectivity in a Fallen World of Subjective Delusion















Try to stand back and objectively look at the span of time here on earth; from the Tower of Babel with its global catalyst of godlessness and passion to live an existence without Almighty God, to the worldly brilliance and idolatrous society of Egypt. From the autocratic power of the Babylonians, to the strength of the Media Persians Empire. From the conquering speed and philosophy of Greece, to the decadent and oppressive Roman Empire. From the genus and barbarity of the Aztec, Mayans and Incas, to the godless vacuum of the European nations and lust for war. All of these civilizations have been one GODLESS, violent, decadent and oppressive cesspool of death and horror to the world's inhabitants (Rom. 1:18-32).

My friend what is most astounding is that we haven’t evened peaked as a fallen race until we reached the 20th century.

Almighty God describes some of these global empires as ferocious wild beasts void of ANY Divine RIGHTEOUSNESS to help us better understand them from a heavenly perspective (Dan 7, Rev 13:1-2). My friend what is most astounding is that we haven’t evened peaked as a fallen race until we reached the 20th century. There has NEVER been a more violent, murderous, oppressive, narcissistic and decadent century in the history of mankind. All of our world’s EXPONENTIAL technological advances made in this last century has given the world more power at their finger tips to show forth the fallen godless passions and violence of the human heart (Jer. 17:9). Of course we have had some noble occasions and humanitarian exploits throughout this time, but these are but a faded blip and pale EXPONENTIALLY in comparison to mankind’s history of violence, lust and decadence (Rom 3:3-23). The out working and horrific consequences from the billions that have inhabited planet earth since Babel has completely ravished and laid waste this world's lands and inhabitants.

All of our world’s EXPONENTIAL technological advances made in this last century has given the world more power at their finger tips to show forth the fallen godless passions and violence of the human heart.

The godless Babelology that first raised its head 4200 years ago (Gen 11:1-9), has thoroughly engulfed and saturated the world of today. This fallen world's Babelology has made its billions of inhabitants spiritually stinking drunk to the crucial realities of time and ETERNITY and thus will they be swept away in the Day which fastly approaches (Eph. 2:1-3, Rev 17:1-2, 18:24). Dear friends, now that we are here in the twenty first century do you think it will get any better mankind? Oh what delusion and fantasy the lawless globalist utopians of this hour hold onto! For with the EXPONENTIAL technological advances of this century will bring about the most HORRIFIC TIME of EXPONENTIAL violence, barbarity, casualties of death , geographical devastation and expression of the fallen heart of man this world has EVER known (Isa. 24, Dan. 12:1, Matt 24:21, Rev. 6-19). Indeed the Day of the Wrath of the Lamb is at hand and who shall abide (Rev. 6:15-17)!
.
Oh what delusion and fantasy the lawless globalist utopians of this hour hold onto! For with the EXPONENTIAL technological advances of this century will bring about the most HORRIFIC TIME of EXPONENTIAL violence, barbarity, casualties of death , geographical devastation and expression of the fallen heart of man this world has EVER known!
,
Even America, which was founded during the Philadelphia Church Age (from about 1700 to about 1900 – the church of the “open door” – Rev 3:7-13), was established on the bedrock of natural and moral laws and foremost acknowledged the Person of Almighty God at its founding. America was founded at the end of the world’s time line which spans about 4200 years. Just in these brief 241 years of our nation's history we have reached socially and culturally the point of no return. There has been no other nation in the world's history that has sent out the Biblical Gospel light as America has. America has been a beacon of freedom to the world's oppressed and has been a global dam holding back the world’s anti-Semitism, oppressive tyrannies and the unbridled passions of fallen despots, especially in this last century. Let me ask you this very sobering question, “What do you think will become of the world once America restraining influence has been removed from the scene?” The very sobering answer is... GREAT tribulation and global anti -Semitism (Zech 14:2, Rev 6-16). America in these last 60 years has given herself full over to lawlessness, lewdness, godless pleasure seeking, immorality, vice, abortion, anti family values, godless ambitions and to the hatred of biblical TRUTH and REALITIES and to the absolute hatred of Jesus Christ the Savior of the world! Dear friends, when the dam (America) which is holding back Satan and this world's evil designs is its self inflicting herself with lawlessness at every level what is to stop the Day of the Lord and ALL its EXPONENTIAL devastation to follow? Dear friends, indeed the Day of the Lord is at hand but there is hope in the Savior of the world!

What do you think will become of the world once America restraining influence has been removed from the scene?

If you personally know the Lord as your Savior, may you pray that He will give you the ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE  for our day that you might have eyes to see the reality and truth, not just from your position in Christ (Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4, Rev 4-5), but also to comprehend our day and hour in which we live (Prov. 2:6, Matt. 7:7, James 1:5).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
