76th Anniversary of D-DAY - A Spiritual Analogy

















On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied soldiers clambered aboard heaving landing craft and braved six-foot swells, waves of machine-gun fire, and more than 6 million mines to claim a stretch of sand at a place called Normandy. Their mission was to carve out an Allied foothold on the edge of Nazi-occupied Europe for the army of more than one million that would follow them in the summer of 1944. This army would burst forth from the beachhead, rolling across Europe into the heart of Germany, liberating millions, toppling a genocidal regime, and ending a nightmare along the way. But it all began on this beach in France, with an army of teenagers on a day called D-Day. (link)
/
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).
/
As we here at the IFB remember the 76th anniversary of this monumental historical event and the valor of those brave men who made up those liberating forces - the spearhead to liberate millions from Nazi oppression and tyranny - I cannot help but think of another highly significant day in the history of mankind which changed the course of mankind FOREVER.

On this Day of days, all was laid on the line for the rescue and liberation of all humanity from the tyranny and oppression of Lucifer (Satan), who is the demonic fascist and oppressor of all the world (Luke 4:5-6; Ephesians 2:1-3; Hebrews 2:14-15). Fallen humanity had been taken into captivity by Lucifer and enslaved in their transgressions. The horrible effects and consequences of Adam's fallen race are deadly and devastating and we all were in great need of rescue from the ETERNAL consequences (Romans 6:23a, 7:24).

The Son of Almighty God debarked of all His DEITY and His ETERNAL glory to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race.

Oh, on this day - The Day of all days - the Lord of Glory, the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God, the Word made flesh; debarked to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race (Rom. 5:12-19). He counted not His life precious unto death. He gave His last full measure (Isa 53, John 10:11, 19:30; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 12:2)! He paid the FULL price for you and me so that through Him we might be LIBERATED from the oppression and tyranny of the devil (John 8:36; Acts 10:38; Heb. 2:14-15), and DELIVERED from this present evil world (Isaiah 53, Galatians 1:4; Eph. 2:2-3) and from sin and death (Psalm 103:12; 1 Cor. 15:53-57)! AMEN!

HIS infinite love, HIS selflessness, HIS steadfastness, HIS faithfulness, HIS righteousness, HIS commitment, and passion made possible our redemption and justification (1 Cor. 1:30; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 2:9-10, 12:2). He opened wide the doors of Heaven that ALL might enter in who put their ABSOLUTE TRUST in Him (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Heb 10:19). AMEN!

The Victory of All Victories!

On the third day, He arose victorious from the grave and He defeated our arch-foes - Lucifer, the evil world system, and sin and death (Gen 3:15, 1 John 4:4, 5:4-5; 1Cor. 15:54-57)! He now sits at the right hand of Almighty God to testify and to make intercession for ALL who put their trust in Him (Psalm 110:1; Heb. 1:3, 7:25, 10:12)!

Oh, Glory! Oh, Praise and Laud to the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29, 1 Peter 1:18-21, Revelation 5)!

HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage!
.
Do you know the Great Liberator and Savior of the world as your personal Lord and Savior? HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage! HE ALONE can liberate you from the tyranny and oppression of sin and Satan!

LOOK UNTO Him today (Isaiah 45:22)! He will NEVER turn anyone away. “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!” (Rom. 5:20) CALL UPON Him today for deliverance (Psalms 18:3, 55:16, 116:13). You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Conservatism Without the Righteousness of Almighty God is Bankrupt.
















In the last twenty years, we have seen as a people the near-complete erosion and extinction of conservative policies and programs in US politics. The United States is increasingly becoming a secular socialist state while abandoning and despising our representative republic of "In God We Trust", which we were founded upon. Our Judeo-Christian heritage, morality, and values do not dominate our culture and society as they once did. Another reality is that many have never known any other kind of society than what presently exists. Accountability, responsibility, and virtue are “hisses and by-words” in Hollywood, the Media Establishment, College/University Campuses, and in Washington D.C. In the Ivory Tower realms of the Society Elite, there is also scoffing. These groups on the Left hate “nominal” Christianity and hate even more true Biblical Christianity. They seek to slander Christianity – and especially Christians - at every opportunity while they defend all sorts of godlessness, immorality, and vice. There is, however, a “new wave” in the arena of talk media led by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, etc., who lead the current fight for conservatism. These are able to counter the mainstream Media's secular leftist liberal bent, but they are unable to stop the erosion and corrosion in secular leftist leaning Washington D.C. What are conservatives to do? Many conservatives are frustrated, many try to be optimistic, many are frightened, and many have just plain given up.

The sad thing today is that many conservatives have no comprehension of the Kingdom of God, which Christ will set up at His triumphant return to earth.

The reality is that once these crucial foundations have completely eroded, they will never come back. Is it hopeless for conservatism? Yes, indeed, if Almighty God is left out of the equation. God’s Word asks the reader of Psalm 11:3, If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? The sad thing today is that many conservatives have no comprehension of the Kingdom of God, which Christ will set up at His triumphant return to earth. This truth is clearly taught in God's Word, the Bible. Conservatives, in general, are "church-going” individuals who, "have a form of godliness but no power" (2 Timothy 3:5). Many are biblically illiterate and adhere to church traditions rather than truth. They know nothing of God's righteous demands required for fallen man (i.e., man with a sinful nature) as revealed in scripture. When it comes to “A-B-C” knowledge of the truths of the Bible, ignorance greater than the understanding is found to be the case. There is little biblical reality or soundness when it comes to what most conservatives really believe.

Conservatism without the Christ of The Holy Scriptures and the righteous perfection of Almighty God is absolutely bankrupt.

Fallen humanity that practices a “moral lifestyle” and conservative principles are still fallen (i.e., tainted by sin, and full of human imperfections) and therefore doomed. The Bible speaks of the conditions that will be present in the last days (the days preceding Christ’s return).

2 Timothy 3:1-5 states: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

And in 1 John 2:18, "Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." (This describes a universal attitude or spirit that hates the True Christ of the scriptures.)

In 2 Thessalonians 2:1-7a, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work…"

These conditions have always existed but they have never existed at this intensity and at the global level seen today. Conservatives must face the reality that these conditions must come to pass before the triumphant return of Christ to earth, without whom there is absolutely no hope.

What must a Conservative do?

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed" (Romans 10:9-11).

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved!" (Acts 16:31).

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil" (Proverbs 3:5-7).

"Have faith in God." (Mark 11:22).

"And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come" (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

There is hope today and it is found only in Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World! "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).

In these trying Last Days may Conservatives abandon their trust in a conservative optimism, replacing it instead with biblical realism and optimism, to ultimately find their hope and trust in Almighty God and His Word alone. Conservatism without Christ is vanity (emptiness) and has no future at all.

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness! On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Abounding Lawlessness - Signs of the Last Days and the Lord Jesus' Return



Dear friends, The Bible speaks very clearly of these Last Days and testifies to this fallen world what the social conditions will be before Christ's return (Romans 10:2-4, 1 Tim. 3:1-7,2 Tim. 4:1-3, Jude, 1:10, Rev. 3:14-22). At present, today's secular progressive movement is being EXPONENTIALLY stoked by the super fallen intelligences of fallen angels (i.e., demons) while dominating and influencing the entire world via the supra 24/7 mediums of this global high tech day! These angelic fallen ones are setting the stage and preparing today's world for Lucifer's lawless minion and the global worship of godlessness and lawlessness; Satan himself and his lawless super -ultra fascist world leader will be the sole focus at that time of all worship and the demonic standard for that fallen world in the day (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev.13). Lawlessness fueled by lawlessness and deceived by lawlessness will only bring about EXPONENTIAL abounding lawlessness, ruin, anarchy, violence and ETERNAL ruin! Do not be deceived! All of today is heading to this very EXPONENTIAL lawless junction, where 666 will be received as normal and fully accepted globally by the remaining majority of the world's 7 billion inhabitants (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 11; 13)!

Some of the signs of these last days will be the EXPONENTIAL abounding lawlessness of society, ethnic groups rising up against ethnic groups; demonically led anti-marriage movements along with other apostate teachings. As we see this ever-growing lawless moment sweeping across and being received by our nation and the world, especially here in the West; be not deceived, for Almighty God's Kingdom is at hand! We today can see the very abundance of shadows of the things which are about to be! This lawless spirit dominates the West's progressive Left, but what is most alarming is how it has swept into moderate and some conservative circles as well. When we see these groups begin to embrace such lawlessness how long will it truly be until we are face to face with the Day of the Lord (Rev. 6-19)!

One of the signs of these last days will be the demonically led anti-marriage movement along with other apostate teachings.
.
Liberalism - for the most part - rejects out right the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. The root and source of this rejection - of these crucial moral laws and realities - is their subjective hatred towards the Creator of the heavens and earth (Romans 1:18-32). This base ideology is expressed and manifested in their disdain and hostility towards the American blue print drawn up by our Founding Fathers, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

Liberal /progressives reject these core moral absolutes and practice a sensual subjectivism that sees God-ordained absolutes through the prism of relativism and pluralism. They possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions (Psalm 14:1-3, Isa 24:5, 2 Tim 3:1-7, Jude 1:10). They are lawless in all their deeds and hostile to any that impose a Divine reality or the adherence of moral absolutes (Rom. 1:28-32).

They possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions.

The Lord Jesus stated that you shall know men by their fruits and by their actions (Matt. 7:16-20). It is simple enough to see that where ever the “virtues” of secular liberalism are promoted and exercised that poverty, disease, anarchy, crime, social chaos, the break down of the family unit, violence, and horrific social devastation are to be found. When one rejects and abandons the core moral building blocks for a healthy society for a godless delusion of lawlessness, expect to find social devastation and chaos (2 Tim. 3:1-7).

What is most alarming is how the very people that impose their delusional solutions and remedies upon the American people seek also to fix these ills of society by applying the very same logic that got us to this social catastrophic point in the first place. By applying these lawless solutions, these excel the rate of today’s social ills at EXPONENTIALY! Today’s American social culture is at an extreme breaking point. The evidence is everywhere, yet the majority of American’s live in the apathetic delusion that all is well and that we will remain and prosper as times past. Wake up America, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Strong Warnings from the Founders and Early American Leaders for America in 2020

















Dear Friends,

One of the most remarkable observations in the study of history is the caution and warnings that are always given by Founders of great civilizations. It seems that those who lay foundations for great civilizations are quite aware of the seeds of pride, selfishness, and contention in human nature which over time usually begin to manifest themselves in society--even good societies. These Founders, realizing the tendency of human nature to degenerate, have always closed their public ministries with solemn warnings of the dire consequences of departing from the lofty ideals they established.
Moses gave the children of Israel the most sublime principles of government and human behavior, which would have led them to the most prosperous society ever. But he seemed to know that after his departure it would be difficult to hold. No doubt he knew from personal experiences that the Israelites would soon depart from his inspired counsel. He said: "For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death?" (Deuteronomy 31:27) He even predicted that they would eventually fall from being the most prosperous and blessed nation on earth into a state of slavery, devoured by other nations, and losing the great blessings of freedom.

The Savior's Sermon on the Mount contained principles of human behavior which, if followed, would have created the highest level of prosperity and freedom ever seen on the face of the earth. But before His ministry was concluded, He gave direct warnings concerning the fate of those who would reject His teachings. As a result, few groups have seen more persecution in the history of the world than those who turned from His true gospel.

When the American Founders set up the first free people in modern times they knew it was risky business. They all realized that any man-made institution -- even under the inspiration of the Almighty -- would be subject to foibles and human weaknesses of those who worked under its canopy. Nevertheless, these men who master-minded the United States of America had the highest aspirations for the great nation they were founding. It was only in their quiet, more somber moments that their apprehensions concerning the future of America came out in concrete phrases and words.

Strong Warnings from the Founders and Early American Leaders

Many state constitutions include words similar to what is contained in the Arizona Constitution: "A frequent recurrence to fundamental principles is essential to the security of individual rights and the perpetuity of free government." ( Arizona State Constitution , Art. II, Sec. 1) Just as we need to periodically review the principles the Founders gave us so should we periodically review the warnings they uttered about the temptation of a free people to use this freedom to give license to human weaknesses and thus pulling down a great civilization.

In Dr. Skousen's The Majesty of God's Law, he includes a whole chapter outlining some of the most powerful warnings of the American Founders. The rest of this letter is drawn from Chapter 32 of this book giving the Founders' quotes and Dr. Skousen's comments.

The Warnings of Benjamin Franklin

Franklin served as one of the foremost architects in structuring the Constitution, and while most of the Founders were congratulating one another on their remarkable charter of liberty, Benjamin Franklin injected this note of prophetic insight.

"I agree to this Constitution ... and I believe, further, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other."

All of this went along with Franklin's basic philosophy of sound government; namely, that no people can remain free if they become wicked and immoral.

When a society decays to the point where people begin to fear for their lives and their property, the demands for a police state have always been inevitable.

The Warnings of George Washington

One of the most significant doctrines set forth in the Farewell Address was Washington's extremely insightful warning concerning the peril of allowing candidates to be nominated and national policies to be promoted by competing political parties. In fact, he prophesied exactly what would happen if the American leaders ever fell into the seductive trap of trying to run the nation with opposing parties. He said:

"They serve to organize factions ... to put in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority....

"Let me ... warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party...."
Almost prophetically he anticipated the encroachment of one branch of government over the others.

He said:"It is important ... that ... those entrusted with its administration ... confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department any encroachment upon another.... The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create ... a real despotism."

Nothing aroused the wrath of Washington more than arrogant bureaucrats actually changing the fundamental structure of government by sheer despotic assertion of administrative power. He said:
"If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpations; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

The Warning of John Adams

Among the warning voices of the Founders none was more forceful in proclaiming the need for a virtuous people to make the Constitution function than John Adams. He said:
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

The Warnings of Thomas Jefferson

During his two terms as President, Jefferson detected some evil and subversive trends which were luring the American people away from the original Constitution. Notice how direct he was in pointing the finger of accusation at the judiciary for corrupting the original constitutional plan:
"Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit, by consolidation first, and then corruption.... The engine of consolidation will be the federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments."

In other words, the Supreme Court uses its judicial mandates to draw more and more power to Washington; then the Congress and the Executive use this new power to shatter the Constitution and corrupt the dual federalism which was designed to balance the political powers between the government and the states.

Once Jefferson's distant cousin, John Marshall, became chief justice of the Supreme Court, Marshall set himself and his associates up as the "final arbiter" on all constitutional issues. Nowhere in the Constitution was the federal judiciary given the power to enforce its will on the states or the other two federal departments. Jefferson had the Supreme Court in his gun sights when he wrote:
"The great object of my fear is the federal judiciary. That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the [state] governments into the jaws of that [federal government] which feeds them."

The Warnings of James Madison

Madison was known to be the philosophical soul-mate of Thomas Jefferson, but sometimes his contemporaries considered him somewhat paranoid and suffering from fears for the nation that would never happen. But the passing of time was to prove him more insightful than many of his contemporaries had thought. He said:

"If Congress can employ money indefinitely, for the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, the establishing in like manner schools throughout the union; they may assume the provision of the poor.... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America."

The Warnings of Abraham Lincoln

At the age of twenty-eight, Abraham Lincoln gave one of the great speeches of his life. He had been asked to speak at the Young Men's Lyceum at Springfield, the capital city of Illinois. He chose as his subject, "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions." The date was January 27, 1837. Lincoln deplored the spirit of lawlessness that was increasing among the people. He said:

"There is even now something of ill omen amongst us. I mean that increasing disregard for law which pervades the country -- the growing disposition to substitute the wild and furious passion in lieu of the sober judgment of courts, and the worse than savage mobs for the executive ministers of justice. The disposition is awfully fearful in any community; and that it now exists in ours ... it would be a violation of truth to deny."

He was not afraid of invasion from without, but he saw the ominous possibility of self-destruction from within. He said:

"At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reaches us, it must spring up among us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time or die by suicide."

The Warnings of Alex De Tocqueville

In 1830 a young judge from France arrived in America. His name was Alexis de Tocqueville. He came to study the American system. He and his friend soaked up more information about the great American experiment in ten months than most scholars absorb in a lifetime.

Returning to France, Alexis de Tocqueville wrote a two-volume work entitled, Democracy in America . De Tocqueville saw the people of the United States passing through several distinct stages.
First of all, he saw the strength of character and moral integrity that would make them prosperous. But as they became self-sufficient he saw that they would be less concerned about each other and much less concerned about the principles that made them a great people. This would leave them vulnerable to the manipulation of clever politicians who would begin to promise them perpetual security if they accepted certain schemes contrived by some of their leaders. He then described what modern students have been led to identify as "democratic socialism.":

"That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood; it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing.

"For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances -- what remains, to spare them all the care of thinking and the trouble of living."

"After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd.
"The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided -- men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till [the] nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."

Are not these warnings sobering? Can we not see every one of them in fulfillment today? Yet in spite of all these dire predictions, the Founders assured us there is a manifest destiny for America that would cause her to rise from the ashes. It is this prophecy that keeps us going.

Is each of us doing all we can to help? Have you had a seminar for your friends in your area yet? Can you spare a little of your resources to help us continue?

Thank you for all you do or will do.

Sincerely,

Earl Taylor, Jr.

Babelology - Ideologies and Their Origins


















Babelology is the delusional, godless ideology and philosophy (religious or political) that is outworked and practiced here in time by unregenerate (i.e., Fallen) man (Romans 7:15-24; 8:5-8). This vain ideology seeks to exclude the reality of Almighty God - His Word, His Attributes, His Absolutes, His Natural Laws, His Righteousness, His Salvation, His Judgment, and His Sovereignty as Creator - from one’s thoughts and actions. It is manifested in a life led by self-will, ruled and dominated by man's fallen nature marred by sin (Romans 5:12,19; 8:5-8; Gal. 5:16-17) and a deceived heart (Jer. 17:9). Unbelief and its godlessness outworking is its fruits (Matt 15:16-20; Gal 5:19-21; 6:7-8). During the whole time of earth’s history (which Biblically is approximately 6000 years), Babelology has expressed itself through the nations, human defiance and unbelief these last 4300 years (Romans 1:18-22).

This vain ideology seeks to exclude the RIGHTEOUS REALITY of Almighty God - His Word, His Attributes, His Absolutes, His Natural Laws, His Righteousness, His Salvation, His Judgment, and His Sovereignty as Creator - from one’s thoughts and actions.

Babelology
.
Babelology may be found in many different religious and political manners and forms (Left/ Right, Subjective/ Objective, Absolute/ Relative, etc.), and purports that man can exist in time and eternity without a vital relationship to the Eternal Creator and Sustainer established in truth and righteousness (Rom. 1:23-32). It is an existence that functions in darkness - not in light, in error - not in truth, in unrighteousness - not in righteousness, and in godlessness - not in godliness. The end result of this delusion is the absolute damnation and eternal ruin of its practitioner in Almighty God’s eternal prison for rebellious (lost) men and angels: Hell, or the Lake of Fire (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; 1 Cor. 15:50; Rev 20:11-15; 21:8,27; 22:11).
l
It is an existence that functions in darkness - not in light, in error - not in truth, in unrighteousness - not in righteousness, and in godlessness - not in godliness.

Outside the Box Lays the Answers
.
One must look outside the box of this world system and believe Almighty God and His Word! Then and only then can one find the answers of life, and see the reality of what life and existence in time and eternity is all about.” (see 1 Kings 8:60; Isaiah 45:21-24; John 14:6)
/
Almighty God is the reality of time and eternity! All gods, ideologies, philosophies, and traditions are absolutely bankrupt and an abomination before Him (Exodus 20:3; Deut. 4:23-25). Almighty God’s Word states:

"I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me" (Isaiah 45:5a).

"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).

"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89).

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

The Bible states that Man must be rescued from his fallen humanity (i.e., lost condition). This is achieved when one puts their trust and faith in the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ (Romans 7:24, Acts 16:30-31). In Christ is found all the provision for the sinful soul (1 Cor. 1:30).

Almighty God will one day remove this fallen world (1 Peter 2:7-13; 1 John 2:15-17) and create a New Heavens and a New Earth (Isaiah 65:17; Rev.21:1). Then, and only then, will all things be redeemed and in harmony with Almighty God, the Creator of all (1 Cor. 15:26-28; Rev. 21; 22:1-5).

In these last days come out of the godless ideologies of the day - religious and political - and put your sole trust in the God of Truth and Reality (2 Cor. 6:17-18)! Your hope will be sure and you will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Almighty God in You - A Slayer of Giants

Who can ever forget the account of David the shepherd boy and his passion and zeal for Almighty God in spirit and truth when he took on the greatest warrior of the Philistine nation in the Name of the Lord and slew him (1 Sam.17:48-58).

Remember, before the slaying of the Giant of Gath, young David placed his firm trust and reliance in the God and Savior of Israel. He took every opportunity to apply himself and trust in his Great Savior. The more he trusted and applied God’s Word for his life the more he grew. David became confident and had full assurance in the Lord in whom He trusted with all his heart (1 Sam. 17:32-37). David worked with what he had and gave it all to Almighty God for His glory (Acts 13:21-22). As a young man and the youngest of eight, David was absolutely loyal, faithful and diligent in the tasks that were given unto him. David's application of the truth and his walk with Almighty God would make him fearless and a mighty man of valor.

David's application of the truth and his walk with Almighty God would make him fearless and a mighty man of valor.

Young David was a shepherd boy who was given a few sheep to watch over. In this task, he was faithful and extremely protective. In the sheep's defense, he slew not only a bear but also a lion. May I say, how many young boys do you know who would do such a thing? Almighty God was doing a great work in David's heart and was preparing David for exceedingly great things. He was raising up a man to serve for His glory and honor and to testify to the nations that there is a God in Israel (1 Sam. 16:12, 17:32-37, 2 Sam. 7:8, Psalm 78:70 ).

So it was no wonder that when all of Israel was unbelieving and fearful in light of their arch enemy the Philistines (1 Sam. 17:23-24), that the passion and zeal of David were burning hot for the God of Israel’s GREAT Name’s sake. This teenage boy was willing to stand up and fight in the midst of innumerable odds and obstacles which opposed him. David applied himself to the fullest and what he was not able to do he deposited to Almighty God to work out for His glory and Great Name's sake (1 Sam. 17:45-47).

In the end, David - in the strength of the Lord – overcame the countless disadvantages and slew this violent warrior of great stature (1 Sam. 17:32-37, Psalm 23). Throughout David's life he would go on to slay many giants and obstacles which stood in the way of Almighty God’s will and way for his life (Psalms 3, 9, 23, 34, 37, 144).

Oh, beloved of Christ! Play the man and fight the good fight in light of this world’s master and his many adversaries.

My friends, how much more are we to apply ourselves today in the little things and seek to be faithful unto the Lord in all that He has before us for His glory and honor (1 Cor. 10:31). We who are seated at the Right Hand of Almighty God in Christ Jesus, blessed with all of the Heavenly BLESSINGS and POWER (Psalm 110:1, Eph. 1:3, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4)!

Oh, beloved of Christ! Play the man and fight the good fight in light of this world’s master and his many adversaries (Eph. 2:1-2, 6:12). Let Almighty God work through you for His HONOR and GLORY (Psalm 56:12; 57:5, 8, 9, 11; 142:7), you will NEVER be or see things the same!

What About You?

Sadly, many today who profess to know and serve the Savior are seeking solutions that are outside of the will of God for their lives. They are the children of Almighty God (John 1:12) who have chosen to be the subjective worldly prisoners of the god of this world. They (in their ignorance and rebellion) allow Satan’s giants to intimidate them in fear, causing them to miss out on the wonders of what Almighty God would do in their hearts and lives if they would only believe (Mark 11:22, Luke 17:6, 2 Tim. 3:5, Heb. 4:1-2, 1 John 5:4 ). My friend, what is the giant of a "raindrop" in the midst of the oceans of the world? What is the giant of a "burning match" in the presence of the noonday sun? Oh my beloved, Almighty God has ALREADY given us the victory! “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)” Draw out your sword - which is the Word of Almighty God and play the man for our Savior's GREAT Name's sake (Rom. 8:31-39, Eph. 6:10-18, Phil. 4:13, Heb. 4:12)!

Sadly, countless children of the King are oblivious to the ETERNAL BIG picture and only subjectively see life through the limited confines of this vain, temporal and doomed world.

Sadly, countless children of the King are oblivious to the ETERNAL BIG picture and only - subjectively - see life through the limited confines of this vain, temporal and doomed world. They are fools in NOT laying hold of ALL of the precious promises and privileges in Christ that are given unto us to apply in our lives to outwork the glory of God (Rom. 8: 28-39, 2 Cor. 1:20, 1 Tim. 6:12, 19, 2 Peter 1:4)! These are not rooted in the TRUTH of Almighty God’s Word and are powerless to stand against the wiles of the devil (Eph. 6:10-18). They are NOT accessing the heavenly arsenal of POWER and MIGHT of their position in Christ (Psalm 110:1, Eph. 1:3,7, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4). They are oblivious to what TRUE prayer is all about and in vain are wasting their breath with self-seeking requests (John 14:13, Rom. 8:26-29, 2 Tim. 3:5). These have neglected the Holy Spirit of God’s good leading and have chosen to possess a self-led Spirit quenching manner of living, reaping the consequences of being Biblically ignorant (Rom. 8:26-28, Gal. 6:7, 1 Thess. 5:19).

They are fools in NOT laying hold of ALL of the precious promises and privileges in Christ that are given unto us to apply in our lives to outwork the glory of God.

In their many "self-imposed" adversities, testings and satanic siftings, these are taking the satanic bait and are seeking for themselves false saviors to deliver them from the many ills which plague them in this fallen world. Tragically, only in the end, do they reap a deeper despair, confusion and depression, never comprehending the errors of their OWN ways  (Gal. 6:3-8, 1 Tim. 1:19, 6:21, Rev. 2:4,14, 20-22, 3:2, 17-19).

Oh my, beloved! Cannot Almighty God be trusted to govern our lives?? Does He not want the ETERNAL highest and best for you (John 3:16-17, Rom. 8:26-39)? Can He not deliver you from the wiles and diabolical trickery of the fallen angel Lucifer (Eph.2:1-10, 6:10-18, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 John 4:4)?, He Who created the Heavens with their billions of galaxies and trillions upon trillions of stars along with the earth with its countless wondrous beauties, can He not remove a great mountain or slay an opposing giant that stands in the way of His great ETERNAL plan and purpose for our lives (Matt. 7:7-8, 17:20, Mark 11:22-23, John 14:13, 1 John 5:14)? He who defeated the King of Fears (i.e., Death - Heb. 2:14-15) by victoriously rising from the grave to sit at the Right Hand of Almighty God, can He not deliver (Psalm 110:1, Acts 2:24,33, 1 Cor 15:1-4)? Can He not rescue you from the adversities and plagues that seek to stand in the way of God the Holy Spirit’s great plan and out working in your heart (Gal. 1:4, Rom. 7:24, 8:26-28)? My beloved, He most surely can! We need to wake up to the great ETERNAL realities and truths of Almighty God our Savior and taste and see that the Lord is good, wondrous and mighty to deliver (Job 23:10, Rom. 5:1-5, Eph 5:14,Heb. 10:36, 1 Peter 1:7, 2 Peter 1:1-10)!

We WILL NOT be delivered from all of life’s adversities, but in all things, we are to be victorious in Christ!

Beloved, the Christian life is one of absolute adventure. We WILL NOT be delivered from all of life’s adversities, but in all things we are to be victorious in Christ (Rom. 8:37, 1 Cor. 15:57, 2 Cor. 2:14, Phil. 4:13, 1 John 5:4)! We are to seek Almighty God’s glory for His great Name’s sake in ALL that we do or say (1 Cor. 10:31, Col. 3:17, 1 Peter 4:11)! In that my beloved is found the POWER of prayer for the child of Almighty God (John 14:13, Rom. 8: 26-29)! We are more than conquers in Christ! In ALL of it we possess the ETERNAL VICTORY which has been given unto us in Christ (Eph. 2:1-10, 2 Peter 1:1-10, Rev. 21, 22:1-5)!

Anything prayed for that is less than Almighty God's will and way for your life for God's glory and honor is rebellion and sin.

In this life’s great warfare there are no utopias here in this fallen world. Do not be deceived. The only solutions for the child of God are found in Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

Anything prayed for that is less than Almighty God's will and way for your life - His highest and best - is rebellion and sin. Remember my beloved,

The GIANTS that stand in the way and oppose God’s will for your life WILL be slain (John 14:13, 15:7, 1 John 5:14)!

In the will of Almighty God you are invincible (Rom. 8:26-39)!

We are to take that hill in Almighty God’s will for the battle is the Lord’s (Rom.8:37)!

My friend, whatever comes your way in these days of adversity and lawlessness, be strong in the Lord, play the man for Almighty God and His great Name's sake, NEVER compromise, fight the good fight of faith and have faith in Almighty God. In doing so, Almighty God in you will become a killer of giants as He works out His will (highest and best) in you for your life unto His glory and honor (John 15:7-8, 2 Cor. 5:17-20, Eph.2:10, 2 Tim. 2:21).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
