Fasting as an act of worship

Teachings of “The Prophet” William Branham – Branham was an important figure in the Latter Rain movement, a clairvoyant who masqueraded as a Christian faith healer.  Branham taught a variety of antichrist heresies, which the linked articles details.

Latter Rain was what today is called New Apostolic Reformation, IHOP, International House of Prayer and Dominion Theology. Even many aspects of the Word Faith “prosperity gospel” preachers began in the Latter Rain.  Branham was believed because of his healing ministry, even though his theology contradicted the Bible.  This demonstrates that many people will follow signs and wonders regardless of what the Bible says.

Of course, the Bible tells us that in the last days, this will be the condition of the apostate Church.

Haters are gonna hate

If the reader comes across the phrase “Haters are gonna hate,” probably the best advice is: FLEE!  “Haters” is usually shorthand for “Those nasty people who can’t appreciate what I’m saying.” or “How dare you disagree with me!” or (if one is or pretending to be a Christian) “I’m sincere! Don’t use your Bible against me!

The ones throwing around the “hater” (or “h8r”) labels are usually the same ones who are the most unbiblical.  “Hater” is their protection against criticism for not rightly handling the Word of God.

Yes, Jesus did say “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.” [John 15:18]

But those truly being hated for the name of Jesus–as opposed to those hating the name of Jesus–pretty much knew the job was dangerous before they took it.

They are NOT standing around writing and complaining about the “haters.”

Matters Of The Heart – God Knows Your ♥ Better Than You Do

What Do You Know For Sure? (1 John 5:6–21)

“Why Are Christians So…” (An Exercise That Will Break Your Heart) – A blogger consults a tool of the world and wonders why the answers he gets are worldly?!?

Questions are then posed which are easily answered IF ONLY one would consult that quaint book known as the Bible.

“What are we doing that our culture is asking those questions of us as followers of Christ?”

“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”
John 15:18

“What does this mean for us as the body of Christ?”

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

How can we respond to those search questions like Jesus?

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 15:19

That’s a start.

Is this too harsh?

Time is short.

The world hates Christians. The only reason some are not aware of this situation is because compromise allows those sitting in church pews to live in the world, enjoy the world and have friendship with the world while maintaining the illusion that they buddies with Jesus.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
James 4:4

Nowhere is compromise and friendship with the world more on display than in America. What “The American Dream” or the “Good Life” really means is “Friendship with the World.”

“Get serious.  James 4:4 isn’t literal!  How do they expect us to live?  This is 2014 after all!”

This writer once heard a pastor preach on how right it was to keep a job where a person was required to work on Sundays. Obviously, people had come to him with this on their minds: their conscience had bothered them.

The pastor pronounced it a right thing to keep the job. He even quoted from the Book of the World: “You gotta do what you gotta do.”

The pastor’s word seared their conscience, presumably so the person could keep working, keep contributing.

There’s a time coming when the “Christian” will no longer be able to lie to himself about his friendship with the world. He will have to make a choice and openly declare which is the most important: Jesus or the world.

The Bible tells us that most will continue to lie to themselves; that they can declare for the world and still have the friendship of Jesus. They do not believe their Bibles or else they believe that they are a “special case.”

Perhaps they have been taught that grace conquers all?

“Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you;”
John 15:20

“An exercise that will break your heart?”

No. An exercise whose questions that should make Christians shout “Hallelujah!”–because if the Bible is true about the world hating the followers of Jesus, then doubters can be assured that the many glorious promises it contains are also true.

“…choose you this day whom ye will serve… but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua 24:15

    1. Bob,

      Thank you for taking the time and leaving a comment.

      So, “Bob”

      Are you a Christian?

      If you are, it should be simple enough to defend the many antichrist statements that Branham is documented to have made. Get out a Bible and start quoting some Scripture in defense of Branham. You either go with the Word of God, or you go with the words of Branham.

      Why don’t you do that Bob? Actually address what Branham said and defend it?

      You’d be doing a tremendous service, educating all of the geniuses out here.

      Once again, thanks for taking the time to stop and leave a comment.
