Inclusive Religions

Does it break your heart when you see the masses of people walking around blindly when it comes to true spiritual things? Do you wish you could shout, "Wake up"!? Do you long to see the Heavens open up and the voice of God to speak loudly to humanity?

I am grieved in my spirit this morning after spending an entire day yesterday at the event, Parliament of the World's Religions. Just sitting and people-watching at that place broke my heart. The blindness of those empty eyes; the appearance of lost souls looking for acceptance instead of what they really need, deliverance. 

I've never seen such a variety of religious garb: saffron robes, men in clerical skirts, women wearing pointed witch hats, old smelly men in turbans of every variety, feminists with men's haircuts and flattened chests, Indian feathers and necklaces of superstitious amulets hanging down -- rosaries worn around the necks and even spaced out guys in aluminum suits. Lost humanity -- earth dwellers, ripe for judgment. 

And the theme of the event, "Reclaiming the Heart of Our Humanity" deifies humans and leaves the true God, His Son, and the true children of God out. All the manmade religions want to join together as one -- all are accepted, except true believers they refer to through clenched teeth as Christian fundamentalists. We are their perceived enemy and the power that holds them back. We are excluded from their inclusiveness -- which is how it should be. It's just amazing that they collectively recognize that, to their own demise.

I can really see God's mercy to mankind that He will soon give them what they want -- a humanistic messiah that tells them how great they are. Too bad for them he is the antichrist. They reject the true King Jesus, but God will give them a king for a season of their own liking. But when he turns on them, many will then turn to the true King of kings and lose their life to save it -- through the fire.
How many can be reached through the fog of deception? A few perhaps. Pray for us who are there as lights in the darkness -- that the LORD would use us to pluck some brands from the fire.

Every knee shall bow!!

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
And the day of vengeance of our God;"
-- Is 61:1-2a

"Come, and let us return to the LORD;
For He has torn, but He will heal us;
He has stricken, but He will bind us up.
After two days He will revive us;
On the third day He will raise us up,
That we may live in His sight.
Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth."
- Hos 6:1-3

Truth Vs. Hype

As we get closer to the final stand against evil on this planet, the enemy seems to be firmly in control. He has blinded the eyes of the earth dwellers, spread his leaven throughout the church world, and placed his land mines under the path of the godly. The god of this world is swollen with pride - he's done such a good job.

The church of Jesus Christ is scattered among the mixed multitudes in pews on this Sunday morning. Most can't sing along with the 'worship band' - especially when they're singing lyrics that are not biblical. They are following the teaching along in their Bibles - many scratching their heads at the interpretation of the seminary-trained clergy in the pulpit. They are sharing communion of leavened bread and grape juice alongside couples living together who aren't married and single people still hung over from Saturday night partying. 

Those who have a heart to share the Gospel in the highways and byways have learned they can only preach Jesus and not preach church. Evangelists have to defend the faith against the false view of Christianity that people see on television. Most normal, sane thinking individuals know that what the televangelists are peddling isn't worth buying. So to lead them to Christ, you must first distinguish the Truth from the hype.

The time is soon approaching when God will say, "Come out of her My people." Yet, there are pockets of unleavened gatherings in diverse places. If you are in such a place, you must strive continually to keep the leaven out. In a mega-church situation, that is virtually impossible. 

Don't get discouraged. Keep spreading the Gospel wherever you can and to anyone who will listen. If you can't invite them to church, at least direct them to solid websites and live streamed teaching and encourage them to get grounded in God's Word. 

Hopefully the Spirit will guide you to those who are are open to hearing and receiving the Truth.

Pray for open doors.

“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work." - John 9:4

"For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." - Heb 4:12-16

The End of Evil

I can't wait until Jesus restores our planet and gets rid of the interlopers. Can you fathom what planet Earth will be like without Satan and his minions here? 

Recall what the legion of demons said to Jesus - "What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?”

It wasn't time yet -- so He allowed them to go into the swine. Well, I hope their time is coming very, very soon. And then Satan himself gets locked up for a thousand years. If there is television during the Millennium, there will be no shows like Ghost Hunters or Most Haunted.

There will be no psychics, no paranormal encounters, no Tarot card readers, no OUIJA boards, no seances, no spiritists, no noises going bump in the night --- what a quiet, peaceful planet it will be!!

The devil knows his time is short -- in fact, the jig is up. 

With Jesus ruling and reigning from Jerusalem and His Bride in charge instead of crooked politicians, there will be no incidents like we saw this week in Roseburg, Oregon. No more Columbines. No missing children's faces on milk cartons.

I'm ready!! I'm asking the LORD to give me jurisdiction over Southern California - where I was born and raised. It could use a major overhaul.


“It shall come to pass
That before they call, I will answer;
And while they are still speaking, I will hear.
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
The lion shall eat straw like the ox,
And dust shall be the serpent’s food.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,”
Says the LORD."
-- Is 65:24-25

"Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the LORD’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore."
-- Is 2:2-4
