Your War Is Not Against Flesh And Blood

Via my son.

And via many of you.

And they’re just fine if you know it.

    On or about 11-4 we can throw copper and lead into the mix. Lets see how both side are doing after that.

    “Praise to the chaos god” chant, we know to whom they are referring. The prince of this world has deceived many. Satan’s influence is spreading and the battle is coming.
    Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!

    You either overthrow your government, end abortion and the 19a and the federal reserve and the 501(c)3 structure or you lose your civilization, as it is judged into the dustbin history.

    Enjoy the Judgement, you deserve it.

    “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” John 3:18-19

    You are condemned already because you love darkness, making your deeds evil. But it is not your deeds; those are simply the outward manifestation of the fact that you are a sinner. You are not a sinner because you sin; you sin because you are a sinner.

    “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23

    We are all sinners.

    “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

    And the only way to be not condemned, found not guilty, is to believe on Him.

    “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14-15

    “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27

    You are going to die. Let that sink in a minute. Your soul lives on to face Judgement for your sin. When you are found guilty, and you are, you will be cast into the lake of fire; this is the wrath and death and hell that you deserve for your sin made manifest in your thoughts and deeds of evil.

    And it doesn’t matter how many good deeds you do to try to outweigh your bad deeds, and we are not measured one against another but by Holy God who is the Judge, because only God is perfect so only He can rightly judge you. The only way to not be condemned, says the very Son of God himself, is to believe on the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ, our Lord. John 3:18-19 are the words of Jesus.

    So the wrath of Holy God is upon you already: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36

    But, there is this Book of Life spoken of in Revelation 20:15, and at that judgement, when the books of your works are opened, so to, will be this Book of Life. Your name must be written there. It’s the only way to be found not guilty. You works won’t get it done, only belief in Jesus Christ through His finished work on the cross gets our name written in the book of life. Only the work of Jesus is good enough.

    God is the Judge, these things are not hidden. God loves you, He wants to have fellowship with you and holy communion with you. He wants to make you His son or daughter. Second Peter 3:29 says that God is not willing that any should perish. Jesus is love, He is the only way out of darkness, out condemnation, out of the wrath that is already upon you, like a price on your head.

    But God is perfect, holy, righteous, and Just. He cannot be in the presence of sin. We must be made not guilty, covered by the blood of Jesus Christ who took all of the wrath and punishment upon himself for you. Jesus already paid your debt. It’s not hard, it’s not a mystery to remain hidden from blinded eyes if that you would only see. All that will seek Him to everlasting life can receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and have his or her name written in the book of life.

    It says in the verses from Revelation above; “whosoever.” And it says right here In Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” that whosoever comes to the realization of Jesus Christ and will call upon Him, and be saved will do it.

    It’s whosoever, the choice is faced by all, everyone, whosoever calls upon Jesus Christ to be saved can receive the gift of eternal life and have their name written in the Book of Life, and whosoever doesn’t is cast into everlasting wrath and hell, the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.

    Jesus Christ died on the cross for you, took your place, took the punishment from Father God that you deserve, and He was buried, and He rose again from the grave the third day, overcoming Sin, and Wrath, and Death, and Hell, that if you put your faith and trust in Him through his atoning death, you too, can overcome wrath and death and hell, having eternal life in Christ Jesus to be found not guilty before the throne of Holy God.

    These may be very hardest words in all of the Holy Scriptures and they are spoken by the thrice holy Christ of God in John 3:18 “…but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

    It’s only Jesus! So says God. The Holy Bible is not strange to be interpreted only by learned scholars. It’s a plain and simple truth that you are a sinner, a walking dead man or woman, and life everlasting is through the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

    “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1st John 5:13

    I beseech you; don’t love darkness rather than Light. Look at those videos, if not made a son or daughter of Holy God through Jesus Christ you are already condemned, you are already numbered among those transgressors in the videos; God sees you no better than they. It’s not a matter of degrees of good or bad, only God is Holy, only God is Good, and only His Son can give you a name in heaven, among those born out of Light, written in His book. Be found not guilty by receiving the Lord Jesus Christ to save your everlasting soul.

    “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.” John 5:25

    Hear the word of the Son of God:

    “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

  5. On October 20, 2020 at 2:14 pm, John said:

    Every day God gives us is another chance to straighten out and seek forgiveness. These too.
    The parable of the Prodical Son makes this very clear to the simplest mind.
    “Hate the sin, love the sinner” is a rule for believers that I find difficult to obey,
    but I keep trying and the task of praying for these people is a tough one.
    They will do what they will but don’t let them put hate in your heart and drag you with them.

    Brad’s got it right above. I’m not interested in “chaos” gods. Very few problems can’t be corrected with high velocity lead. Think of it as a “patriot version” of a vaccine for that sorta shit in the videos.

    Eh, pointy ears there looks more like an albino goblin, a gretchin (one of witless whitmer’s warrior wimmin perhaps) or a snotling. Either way, a mutant heretic.

    The chanting chaos mutants there in Boston also might want to re-watch Temple of Doom to get the chant correct though.
