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.

Ken Ham's Illustrations on Spiritual Warfare Against Humanism

Dr. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis made these beautiful illustrations to show what's wrong with the church today. Let's take a look at the two illustrations on how Christians engage their spiritual warfare. 
The first illustration reveals the following:
One member is asleep when he should be doing something.Another person is firing at the balloons because the person who's supposed to fire it is asleep on the job.Somebody is focused on deflecting cannon balls than hitting the source of the cannon balls.Somebody is treating the whole situation like a game.  
By doing so, humanism is victorious whenever the local church is asleep. This is the problem to why Christians tend to fall down in battle at times:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
In short, if you're not going to stand in the gap on behalf of the land then who will? It's the…

The Ridiculous Roman Catholic View That Marriage Must Be Done Inside Their Church or It's Invalid

I remembered reading through the seven sacraments or ordinances of the Roman Catholic institution in a catechism. One of the teachings is that marriage must be treated as a sacrament. What it also implies is that if your marriage is done in a civil court that even if it was duly registered, that both couples were in a sexually pure union then it's not a marriage. So does that mean that a person can marry in a civil court, get divorced and marry his next spouse in the Roman Catholic institution?

Let's address the issue of civil marriage that is pure and holy. In short there was no incest, no adultery and it was between two people who are eligible for marriage. So why should the Roman Catholic institution even think that two people who got married with the sexually pure prerequisites in the eyes of God should be rejected. Is it because unless it's a priest who performs the marriage then the marriage can't be validated? It's a problem with how Roman Catholics have thei…

Don't Forget That the Roman Catholic Institution Has a Very Long History of Inciting Sedition

The Roman Catholic institution has its long fraudulent history of claiming to be the "One True Church that was founded n 33 A.D. - Holy, Catholic and Apostolic". The word catholic is a synonym for universal but the disciples were never first called Catholics in Antioch but Christians (Acts 11:26). Catholic was used as an old world for universal which some people today are allergic to that word because Catholic has been used to describe people who are members of the Roman Catholic institution. What can be talked about now is the fact that the Roman Catholic institution has had a long history of inciting sedition in governments. While they claim it to be doing the "work of God" or as the Jesuits say "Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam" or "For the greater glory of God." but is it really?

Doing some study of the history of the Vatican has it shown that the Inquisition and later the Jesuit Order have a lot of bloody rags to answer for. Did you know that many ki…

Understanding Ignatius of Antioch's Statement on the Eucharist

It's already expected that Roman Catholicism takes Scriptures out of context and/or purposely misreads it. If they can't even handle the Word of God with reverence then I don't expect them to handle anything else with reverence except it be the writing of the past Popes and the Roman Catholic priests. One such man is the Christian bishop or overseer. In case Roman Catholics want to argue that the term "bishop" would prove he's one of their kind then they are mistaken. To be a bishop according to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 is to be a church leader. Besides, the same passage says that bishops must be family men of moral dignity which is impossible for a Roman Catholic priest who's bound to celibacy. Please note 1 Corinthians 7:35-37 is not a command for priests to stay single all their lives!
Now here's a popular misquote from the very passage of Ignatius of Antioch to justify the doctrine of transubstantiation: They abstain from the eucharist and from prayer, bec…

Testimony of Former Jesuit Priest Victor J. Affonso

To Follow Jesus Without Compromise by Victor J. Affonso
Why I joined the Society of Jesus
At the age of 23, I was a successful commercial artist on the verge of going abroad where a job was awaiting me. I was happy at the prospect of leaving India and thereby also escaping the terrible anguish caused of seeing the misery of the poor in the streets of Bombay.
Political saviors like Gandhi and Nehru had failed in giving true freedom and justice to India’s poor majority. Murder and divisions assailed “independent” India, and so it still is today. All the social works were but a few drops of water in a desert. Yet there was still one solution left: The words of Jesus kept coming to me during prayer, “…For with God ALL things are possible” (Mark 10:27). “Don’t run away!” On another day I heard the words, “Follow My Son — Jesus!” This word finally led me to leave the world and join the Society of Jesus, a missionary order that promised by its very title, its “Spiritual Exercises” and its C…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

God's Curse Upon Gambling!

One of the greatest hypocrisies that people are facing right now is the sin of legalized gambling. Why do I dare say it is hypocritical? It's because for one legalized gambling promotes all type of filth. We have laws against adultery but not against pornography, we have laws against stealing but not against gambling which is really a sin. Today, Christians must voice out not only against legalized prostitution and legalized pornography, they must also voice against legalized gambling. 1 Timothy 6:10 is true that in these days, the love for money is the root of all evil in the secular world plus gambling is mainly rooted upon the love for money. We ought to think that in every way, money is not evil but the love for it is really evil. Gambling in itself is fed because of the love of money. Pastor Mike Stahl a Baptist preacher had also revealed the ill effects of gambling, in truth it is a very lucrative business that sadly destroys lives. To be honest, gambling has been one of th…
