End Times Prophecy Report

Did Rubio’s immigration flip-flop rehabilitate his image among Republicans? – Rubio is a politician. People expect him to lie–and he doesn’t disappoint.
If one strives for intellectual honesty it is nearly impossible to reconcile some of the passages in the Bible with the infantile, self-obsessed doctrines men have been manufacturing as of late. With each passing year it seems the focus on the self becomes all the more laser like, while the focus on Jesus is almost nonexistent. Jesus has become optional for many professing believers. He has become something to be taken or left depending upon the mood they happen to be in that day, or whether or not Jesus convicted the particular sin they are about to partake of.
Because those who would speak truth are as a thorn in the side of the duplicitous and compromised, theirs is not a ‘live and let live’ mentality, but rather, ‘believe as I believe or else!’ When you politely tell them that you cannot believe as they believe because what they believe is not scripturally sound, you will inevitably be called judgmental, told the take the beam out of your own eye, be accused of legalism and branded as one who believes in works, or that works are a natural part of the believer’s journey.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
-–1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – (h/t:B)
CHRISTIANS SUBMIT TO CIVIL AUTHORITY
The Right to Resist Evil Leaders The Christian History – It’s always amusing when pretend Christians takes a whack at interpreting the Bible. Oddly enough, they almost always to try and discredit what the Bible says. This is another example of that taking place in one of the Corporate Media’s (Satan’s Mouthpiece) favorite games: Let’s try and discredit Romans 13 so we can rebel!
This is little wonder as Lucifer was the original rebel.
The media has tried any number of tactics to discredit a very clearly written passage which states that Christians are to obey the civil authorities whether they agree with them or not. There have been attempts to “prove” to Christians that Romans 13 doesn’t pertain to “tyrants” or “evil rulers.” There’s some of that going on in this article as well.
The media has tried the “American exclusion clause.” That one goes: Hey, we’re Americans and we didn’t obey the Bible the first time around and look at how great it turned out for us! Yeah, just look.
They’ve tried the Obama Rule: The Bible is talking about everyone except Obama, he’s the antichrist!
The media attacks Romans 13 because it is the clearest–but by no means only–Bible verse on the subject.
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
That’s pretty clear, huh? Resist the civil authorities, and receive damnation.
Of course, Satan’s Mouthpiece has much to say about that very clear verse. But there are plenty of other Bible verses which essentially tell the Christian the same thing: God puts who he wishes into power for whatever end He determines. We are not to rebel or resist the powers that God has installed. That includes authorities with which we don’t agree. Here’s a few other verses which the Romans 13 attackers don’t bring up.
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
–1 Samuel 15:23
“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.“
–1 Peter 2:13-17
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;“
–1 Timothy 2:1-3
“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,“
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government [authority].“
–2 Peter 2:9-10
No wonder the Corporate Media guys only want to take on Romans 13.
If the government commands a Christian to break one of God’s laws (for instance, to murder) then the Christian is not to obey. He’s not to take up arms, he simply does not obey. If the government comes for the Christian because of his disobedience, he can flee.
NO WHERE in the Bible is the Christian given permission to rebel against civil authority. Which is one reason American “patriots” wave the Bible around rather than read it. Flags with serpents were very popular with the colonial rebels. Wonder why?
Every time an article of the type found at the link is published (a very regular occurrence) this writer has to look up the various scriptural commandments about obeying civil authority.
That means it’s time for an article on the subject.
Americans can be rebels or they can be Christians. They cannot be both regardless of what line the latest Corporate Media guy is pushing. There will be no end of pretend Christians who will insist they can have it both ways. And there will be no end of pretend Christians listening to them.
James 5:6-7 puts it plainly.
Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
It’s very simple. Make your choice: Jesus or rebellion; eternal life or eternal damnation.
Those who do not agree: take it up with God–because you will be.
Maybe one of the media guys will show up to plead your case!
Wonder who will win that argument?
Romans 12 – An article by a defiant writer who calls himself a Christian, but declares he will not obey God’s Word. He is not alone in America, a land that was born of rebellion.
For too many gays, intolerance is a one-way street – It’s not only homosexuals. It’s all of the “Love, Tolerance, Brotherhood” crowd. There’s only love and tolerance if one agrees with them.
Popular TV preacher John Hagee is no friend of the Jews.
Hagee is the brains behind CUFI (Christians United for Israel). Yet, Hagee will not share the gospel with Jews! More than that, Hagee has written that Jesus wasn’t the Messiah for the Jews! Hagee also has said that the Jews have their own way to heaven and don’t need Jesus!
So don’t look to John Hagee to offer the Jews the opportunity for eternal life through Jesus Christ. He is on the record as saying he flatly won’t do it.
(VIDEO) The page turner – Ingenious new invention or colossal waste of time?
Toledo’s Water supply has toxin?!? Half-million residents affected – As the USA sinks further into the Third World, some residents want to revolt. These rebels don’t stop to consider that the USA was artificially inflated economically after WWII (regardless of what propaganda has taught them) and the USA is now in the process of being artificially deflated before WWIII.
Transgendered rights are the next frontier – We passed that frontier long ago.
MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT
“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master.” “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do.
How Hackers Could Slam On Your Car’s Brakes – See? It’s not your fault.
How Ramen Got Me Through Adolescence – Ramen looks to be the future basis of the American food supply.
Identifying The Mutant Gene Allows Some People To Need Less Sleep – Another sleep narrative.
