Sodom and Gomorrah

Sodom and Gomorrah

Jude 7

“As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

Recently I have been very disgusted to hear that people are now pushing our nation to tolerate and accept pedophilia. Pedophilia is a heinous crime and should be strictly punished, as children are being victimized and manipulated for the perpetrators selfish pleasure. Below is a video on Hulu promoting child/ adult relationships; the whole video is geared towards causing the viewer to accept the concept of a boy marrying a grown man:  https://vimeo.com/user21156251/bravestknight. There is actually an organization called N.A.M.b.L.A. that fights to change the laws that hinder adults from sexually assaulting children. Another article shows that even Cambridge University in England has allowed the promotion of such wicked views to infiltrated their establishment: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/10948796/Paedophilia-is-natural-and-normal-for-males.html

It should make everyone of you sick, and the promoters of such should be thrown into jail; but sadly, the way our country is going, people like me will probably sooner be thrown into jail for speaking truth while pedophiles are cheered on for coming out of the closet with their brave new concepts.

Folks, this is the end result of the satanic spirit of tolerance in our world. When we are pressured to just accept every form of sin, then the floodgates are opened and every filthy desire of hell comes rushing through. When God’s moral standards are rejected, even by professing Christians, and when those who stand on moral absolutes are considered “haters” for actually saying something is “wrong”, the result is that “all goes”! Since there are no boundaries, America praises a man for becoming a woman; since there are no moral standards, America defends the right for a man who is gender confused to use a woman’s restroom regardless of the danger that a little girl might be in there. Since God’s ways are thrown out, the 6,000 year old definition of married is redefined, allowing men to marry men and adopt little boys. And now, since the walls are down and everyone is tolerant of everything accept truth, the devil will drive home his perverted agenda and the world will simply accept it; even protect and promote it. Lord have mercy on us.

I must proclaim that God is holy! He will by no means clear the guilty (Numbers 14:18). Drunkenness is wrong, homosexuality is wrong, hatred is wrong, fornication and lust are wrong, idolatry, covetousness, greed, selfishness, not loving God,  not loving others are all wrong, and those who practice such things will by NO MEANS enter the kingdom of heaven (1 Corinthians 6:9- 11; Galatians 5:19- 21) . Unless the world repents it will perish (Luke 13:3). The stench of perversion in Sodom and Gomorrah finally reached heaven and God had enough; He rained fire and brimstone upon them all as an example to us of His holy retribution. Even today you can find balls of sulfur lodged into rocks in the vicinity of Sodom and Gomorrah, more condensed (98% sulfur) than any other place on earth. Billy Graham’s wife, after reading her husband’s book about the conditions of America, proclaimed that if God does not judge America soon then He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

God must punish sin, and He will. Look at the bloody cross and realize that that was supposed to be you; it was supposed to be me. Because Jesus died, you can be forgiven. Because He was raised, you can live forever. Please, let us all turn from the wickedness of this life and put our faith in the Lord Jesus. Let us follow Him down the difficult path of righteousness while the world continues loving evil. The wrath of God is coming and will be executed against all unrighteousness and ungodliness of men, consuming them with unquenchable fire. Throw yourself upon the mercies of Christ today, and escape the judgments to come. God is rich in mercy and is willing to wash your sins away, never again to be remembered.

Surrender to the God that made you, the God who gave you life. His hands are stretched out to you today… will you come to Him?

With deep concern for the world, Jonathan Ball

Free from Men’s Blood

Free from Men’s Blood

Acts 20:26, 27

“Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.”

Preacher, do you want to be free from the blood of all men? Then fail not to declare the full counsel of God, even the parts that make people uncomfortable. For as ministers, we are dealing with the eternal souls of men, not a mere trivial matter! It is essential, no, imperative that we deal faithfully with the gospel message that was entrusted to us by God. If we see danger and fail to declare it to the people, their blood is on our hands (Ezekiel 33:6). 

The very reason Paul was innocent of the blood of all men was because he did not failed to declare to all the whole counsel of God. This tells us that we are guilty of men’s blood if we are failing to teach people the Lords full counsel. You see, many teachers refuse to talk about topics such as “sin”, “righteousness”, “the cross”, “judgment”, “God’s wrath”, “repentance”, and “hell” because they don’t want to ruffle any feathers, so they will only teach on love, mercy, grace, and then more love. Now it is true they will have a happier crowd, but none of that will matter if they perish and go to hell.

 The problem with cutting out all the hard stuff is that people get this false image of a god who would never hurt a fly. They don’t fear God for they feel no reason too; they are left comfortable in their sins because they believe that God is only love and will simply forgive them. People’s minds become so conditioned with this one sided message that when they do hear more difficult Scriptures taught, many of them reject it. Nevertheless, God has told us who He is, what He has done and what He is going to do. His word is a rock, it will never change and we must not change it to suit our needs.

What happens when the hard stuff is removed is that the fear of the Lord disappears, which is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. God’s people perish for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). We must understand the nature of God, and what He has promised He will do.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Yes God is good, but He is also severe (Romans 11:22); yes God is forgiving but He is also righteous and will by no means clear the guilty (Numbers 14:18); yes God is love (1 John 4:8) but He is also holy, holy, holy (Isaiah 6:3; Revelations 4:8); yes God loves (John 3:16), but He also hates (Proverbs 6:16- 19); Yes God is patient and kind (2 Peter 3:9), but He also gets angry (Psalms 7:11); yes God forgives but He also condemns (John 3:17); yes God makes alive, but He also kills (Deuteronomy 32:39); yes God is merciful, but He also has wrath (John 3:36). 

Please, reader, understand that one Day every living soul will stand before God and give an account of their life to Him. Every secret will be revealed, even the dark secrets of our heart, and God will judge us in righteousness by the Man Jesus Christ. Knowing this fact, let us walk wisely in this life, pursuing holiness through Jesus. Let us deal faithfully with others, speaking eternal truths to them because we love them and do not wish for them to perish, but to have eternal life!

I love you all because of Jesus,

Do Not Mistake the True Meaning of the Cross

Do Not Mistake the True Meaning of the Cross

Please take a while to meditate on this powerful devotional by Tozer. It strikes the heart of our problem today in Churches. If I had the power, I would force every Church-goer and pastor in America to sit down and listen to this over and over, until it sunk in.

A.W. Tozer

Galatians 6:14

“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.”

“All unannounced and mostly undetected there has come in modern times a new cross unto popular evangelical circles.

It is like the old cross, but different: the likenesses are superficial, the differences fundamental!

From this new cross has sprung up a new philosophy of the Christian life with encouragement for a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist tries to show that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. The modern view is that the new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him!

The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere, but it is as false as it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross.

The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. In Roman times, the man who took up his cross and started down the road was not coming back. He was not going out to have his life redirected: he was going out to have it ended! The cross did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more!

The race of Adam is under death sentence. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. Thus God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life!”
