God Says To Israel, "Yet Have Ye Not Returned Unto Me." Five Times In a Row

It's really a problem how the problem in Amos 4:6-12 is still true today. The problem is that many of the Jews are just as stubborn as many of the Gentiles. Don't believe for a second that just because a person is born a Jew doesn't mean that they don't have to be born again. If that were true, remember Jesus spoke to Nicodemus a Jew on the need to be born again. Jesus condemned the unbelieving Jews in John 8:44 as children of the Devil. He told them that they needed to repent or perish. Being a Jew doesn't exempt anyone from the need to receive Jesus Christ as one's Lord and Savior.

The phrase "Yet ye have not returned to Me." should be very disturbing. You could think of the situations God used to bring the Jews to repentance. He had stuck them down with famine, caused a drought by withholding rain, struck down the harvest for food, sent outbreaks of diseases and even overthrew them yet they will not repent. This is the problem of how the Jews continuously dishonor God's covenant with Israel. Think about the number of prophets God sent to the Jews yet only a few come to repentance. Think about the earthly ministry of Jesus and only a few Jews get saved. Several Jews today remain ungrateful to God by continuing to reject His only Son the Lord Jesus Christ. They still continue to think they worship God but they reject Him by rejecting His only Son. They have passed through so many disasters one after the other yet their hearts are still stubborn against God.

The unbelieving Jews of today are no different than the rest of the unbelieving world. Think about it that there's an upcoming New World Order. People would want the perfect leader but they ironically reject the Lord Jesus Christ. Most Jews today just don't want to accept that Jesus Christ is their Messiah. They think that the Messiah is yet to come. They continue to celebrate Passover even when the sacrifice on the cross in finished. Some may even be proud of the sins of their forefathers of rejecting Jesus Christ and having Him crucified. They still continue in their unbelief instead of feeling sorry that their sins that nailed their Messiah on the cross so they could be forgiven. To be a Jewish Christian has resulted to rejection in the Jewish community. The book of Hebrews was written to encourage Jewish Christians in their times of persecution.

This problem is really true for mankind and it's already predicted in Revelation 16:8-10. One good reason why people who take the Mark of the Beast are going to the Lake of Fire is not just for merely accepting the mark for the sake of accepting it. The same bunch of people who have accepted the mark have decided to forever harden their hearts to the very end. The truth of the matter is the same people repented not but continued to curse God. It's also highly possible people in Hell will still continue to curse God because they know there's no way out. The rich man in Luke 16:18-31 was fully aware there was no hope for him to leave Hell. It wouldn't make sense to give a second chance after death since such people would still hate God anyway. It's possible that they still wouldn't want Jesus even after they're dead as some Christian comics would want us to believe. I think they could have been forgiven if they repented but remember these people continue in their unbelief. That's why those who accept the Mark of the Beast and worship the image would end up in the Lake of Fire.

Do Feminists Ever Realize That Women Shouldn't Use Acts of Violence Against Men?

It's irritating to be told that men shouldn't use violence on women but the other way around is okay. No, it's not okay to hit anyone regardless of gender out of anger or frustration. If men shouldn't hit women except in acts of self-defense then the other way round should apply. But you have to remember the stupidity of selective justice and selective outrage of feminists. They think men should respect them while they think discriminating against men is okay. Their quest for "equality" is nothing more than a big joke.

Why is it usually a big fuzz when a man hits a woman but not so many people react if a woman hits a man? That kind of hypocrisy is worth addressing. They say men shouldn't hit women because they are "weaker" but is it okay for a person of lower rank to attack a person of higher rank? The word submission doesn't exist in the feminist dictionary unless it's men submitting to them. Whether they like it or not the husband is t…

You Can't Preach About God's Love For Sinners Without Preaching About His Wrath Against Sin

It's a problem that so many quack preachers love to preach God's love for sinners but not about God's wrath against them because He must punish both the sin and the sinner. Everything from God's love to His wrath is dictated by the fact that He is holy and you are not. The message about God's love for sinners will make no sense if you don't preach about God's wrath against sin first. I remembered listening to "Hell's Best Kept Secret" and "True and False Conversion" by Ray Comfort. There was this point where Kirk Cameron talked about what if I sold my property to save someone from a disease. If the person doesn't know anything about the disease then my selling of all my property to pay for the badly needed treatment won't make sense. Another illustration was all about the flight. You have to tell the person that the parachute is not meant to improve the flight but to tell the person that it's for emergency reasons. If you…

It's Not Okay to Be Blindly Loyal to the Pope and His Army of Pharisees

Some rabid Roman Catholics keep sensationalizing the sins of fraud pastors (as if true born again Christians ever support them) while they keep hiding the sins of their priests or Pharisees. They also say that born again Christians are blindly loyal to the pastor never mind that they are blindly loyal to the Pope and his Pharisees. Blind loyalty towards a a prosperity gospel pastor, a so-called successor of a so-called last messenger or any quack preacher is no different than blind loyalty towards the Pope and his Pharisees. Worse, Roman Catholics believe that their Pharisees are instruments in saving their souls or that the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands never mind all the priestly scandals are telling them otherwise.

I could remember how often Bible reading is discouraged (and yet some of these rabid Roman Catholics tell me I should read the Bible and I can't get wrong with it) because it could drive me crazy from reading it. Some Roman Catholics I've met &quo…

Don't Even Think About Legalizing Prostitution or Sex Trade

There's some people who seek to legalize prostitution. Some "rational" atheists are already talking about prostitution should be legalized so it could be controlled by the government. The claim that "studies" show that prohibition doesn't work is a lie straight from the pits of Hell. The Israelites were doing sin not because God forbade it but because they were disobedient and the rulers did nothing to prevent those sins. It's not surprising is that the same people who seek to legalize prostitution also want to legalize narcotics and hard liquor all in the name of "succeeding in the war against them".

The logic behind legalizing prostitution is that so the government can control them and tax them. But the problem with the quest to legalize prostitution is that it encourages the sin rather than discourage it. The problem is not the war against prostitution but ignoring Ecclesiastes 8:11. Do you know why the war against prostitution isn't wo…

Is Salvation in Peter's Hands (As Well as the Popes) Because Jesus Supposedly Gave Him the Literal Keys of Heaven?

According to a self-proclaimed Roman Catholic apologist (who I'll probably dub as Mr. Whistle when I mention him) he claimed that salvation is in the hands of Peter because Jesus gave the former the keys of Heaven. The guy is clearly taking things out of context with what he says. I wonder does he even bother to check out the idioms of the Bible since some passages use a figure of speech instead of speaking everything literally?

If he can't get Matthew 16:18 correctly where he said that Peter the Rock even when the Good News Translation for Roman Catholics says otherwise (and worse for them Peter is differentiated as a rock and the Rock is clearly not him) then he also misinterprets Matthew 16:19. Let's try to understand Matthew 16:19 with the keys and what they really mean. In his interpretation he's already telling everyone that born again Christians should just go back to the Roman Catholic institution because the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands. I don&…

Atheists With Abusive Mindsets Do Exist

It's a myth over the modern world that there's no such thing as an atheist with an abusive mindset. I can see atheists who claim that abuses only come through theism. I don't deny that there's such a thing as religious people with an abusive mindset such as Roman Catholic fanatics, Islamic extremists and any form of religious extremism. The problem of the claim is that it denies the reality that there's such a thing as atheists who have an abusive mindset. One such person is the late Christopher Hitchens who claims that he has the right o treat religion with ridicule, hatred and contempt. Isn't that an example of an atheist with an abusive mindset? Sad to say, Hitchens himself is still cursing God from the pits of Hell. Christians should pray that Richard Dawkins wouldn't make the same wrong decision as Hitchens.

One horrible atheist blogger claimed he was indeed one of the most scientific people on Earth. Just reading his blog alone is so tiresome that I&…

Why This Ministry DOES NOT Support the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church is a so-called Baptist institution founded by Fred Phelps who is a lawyer and a theologian. Is it your average Baptist assembly or is this another of Satan's brain children? I would like to present my stand why this ministry does not support the Westboro Baptist Church and why as a Baptist, I do not support them either:
The founder Fred Phelps who serves as its pastor. I do find it disturbing he says that he supports sound doctrine of good Christian preachers of the past like John Calvin and Charles Haddon Spurgeon but his doctrine is not sound at all. His preaching is definitely not balanced. While I do appreciate him attacking the Great Whore of Revelation, apostasy, ecumenism, homosexuality, abortion, pornography and a lot of sins however he is no better than the Roman Catholic institution which he frequently criticizes. Although he claims to be a Calvinist and a Spurgeon fan, however many of those who are Calvinist preachers like Paul Washer, John …
