Lies

Why can’t the truth be known?  Why?

The truth can be known if you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Lord and Savior of the world; the King who is to come and bring in the Kingdom from the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, and He shall rule the whole world.

The truth can be known if you would only believe in the Holy Bible, GOD’s spoken word written! It’s all there, beginning with the beginning, the Book of Genesis, and ends with the last book, The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Science that can be proved is in perfect harmony with the Bible!  Science that cannot be proved but is theory and lies is at war with God and His Bible!  And this great battle now raging today, as it did the past 200 years or so, effects the way people think, society, religions, the world! Everything!

The enemy, the devil and his host of evil spirits never gives up, but is always on the attack!

Stay lost…drink in society as your life, hold to the teachings of man, resist the Holy Spirit, harden your heart, believe you are going to live a long time and can make it just fine by yourself!

Don’t think about the future, don’t look up, don’t give thought to the majestic beauty around you or the way all things work without your understanding!

Don’t ask the tough questions about what happens when I die?  Is that it?  Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die, and that’s all she wrote! Right?  Really?

Think about it, OK?

But, instead, you really can know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior of your life and soul…that’s right!  He’s waiting at the door of your heart.  Why not invite Him in?

Believe in Him….that if you shall confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved!

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation…

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord will be saved!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever shall believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life!

Tell Him you are a sinner, that you believe He died for your sins by shedding His blood on the Cross, and repent and ask forgiveness for your sins.  Ask Him to come into your heart, and you shall be saved! It’s that simple!

But if you want want to depend on the lie, than you are a fool!  It’s up to you!

Think about it.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit…Amen.

September

Brother Monk!  What’s about?

Father Monk, I have been studying the times we live in and other people and other religions.   And on this topic of late, my mind keeps coming back to Muslims and Islam.

In what sense?

Why, conquest and terror, the bane of our 21st Century!

When I think of terror atrocities of the last two-three decades and up to now, committed in countries all over the world, it is Muslims the facts point to who plan and carry-out these evil, horrific, murderous acts against the innocent, no matter men, women or children!  It is Muslims, regardless of country of origin who do this again, and again, and again, and will not stop!

You’ve done your homework, have you?

Yes, and they see it as their duty according to their religion and according to their holy book, the Koran, which commands them to do these things to please their god, Allah, and thus ever be abundantly rewarded in their heaven at death.  So it makes no difference if they blow themselves up, so long as they kill a lot of people in places which are crowded, because they are all about taking out large numbers of innocents to get world attention! And through their terroist acts, they hope to shock the public and put fear into the hearts and minds of the population!

They seek to gain converts and help bring about world domination of the Islamic faith, first by education; second by the sword by armed conquest!

History is repleat with solid facts-eyewitness accounts of Muslim conquest.  First, from out of Arabia in the 7th and 8th centuries, A.D., they conquered all of the Christian Holy Land and Middle East, and north into Persia, west across North Africa, and east to India! Great and ancient Christian centers were wiped out and churches became mosques. Populations conquered either converted or were killed or sold into slavery!  The great city of Constantinople became Istanbul under the Muslim Turks.

Then they got a foothold in Europe, in the southern part of Spain. and centuries later, as if two giant pincer movements would descend upon Europe, they first tried to conquer Europe through southern France at the city of Tours, but, thankfully, were defeated by Charles Martel, “The Hammer,” and his army!

But that did not stop them, for in the 17th century, the tried the right wing of the great pincer movement with Vienna, Austria as the goal of their conquest, then on to Rome! But, they were defeated at Vienna on SEPTEMBER 11, 1683 by the arriving army of the Polish king, Jan Sobieski!

And they made incursions into the Balkans and settled there, too!

Now look at September 11, 2001! Coincidence?

Today, although there is ISIS and their acclaim for Sharia Law, there is no large invading army as in former times. But there is still, nevertheless, an invading army bent on conquest OF THE WORLD, COUNTRY BY COUNTRY through conversion by education. And this is being done through immigration and refuges and the proliferation of mosques wherever they settle.

Don’t believe it?  Then just look at what is happenning in Western Europe today, and now America!  Just look and take note…open your eyes!  It is upon us, and there are no Charles Martel’s or Jan Sobieski’s in the field!  Why, just days ago a Muslim cleric in Arabia declared the destruction of all Christian churches! I have yet to hear even a whisper among the news or government agencies!  Most Christians don’t even know!

Then what of England, Brother Monk?

I fear England is blind and will not react until yet a greater atricity shall rock our native island!

But I put my trust in the Lord Jesus.  He will bring us through, and we shall defend the faith in His holy name.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

Amen.

Sending Out

Brother Monk!  You must come in! The storm is near and the waves are beginning to pound our poor island! You must come in, right now!

Yes, of course, but let me throw my bottle with a message into the sea.  And where it lands, who knows?  Someone, somewhere, with the Lord’s help shall find it and perhaps take the message to heart, I pray.  Now let’s be off to the church.

Like the bottle on the sea, carried about to an unknown destination, so is the Word of God, being received in somebody by the power of the Holy Spirit.  And it does not come back empty, but will do as God has proposed.  And in this comes salvation.  For by the Holy Spirit can you then confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!  You are born again into a new life in GOD, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one GOD, living and eternal, maker of all things, sustainer of all things, and executer of things; He is who planned the ages and all things to come forth and do what they do; H e is the judge of all men.

He will come one day soon, and call His Holy Church to Himself- true believers; first, the dead in Christ will rise from the grave.  Then we who are alive shall meet them in the air above the clouds, where we shall also see Christ, for we shall be like Him.  And then we shall follow Him up to Heaven to the Father Almighty, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Therefore, comfort one another with these words.

All this shall happen before the future coming seven years of hell on earth as never, ever before, known in the Holy Bible as the “Tribulation!”

But Christ shall spare His body, the Church, from this awful, awful time that is to come after the Rapture of the Church upon all the earth, all the unbelievers!.

So send out the Word of God to all that have an ear to hear!  Proclaim the Good News of Christ.  He is the One who shall judge the whole world!  All nations and men shall be judged for their deeds, evil or good.  Send out the truth that men may know their future-know what’s coming, and know what’s in store for them!  It’s all in the Holy Bible-everything…just read it!  It is GOD’s spoken word written for you!  But read it and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. And your life shall change forever!

Lord, I pray that today, now, that one more Jew and one more Gentile shall come to the saving knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ, as their Savior.  I pray for the souls of those conceived but never born, and for the little children everywhere…

In Jesus Christ’s precious name I pray,

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

Amen+

How Great?

How great!  How great the love of Almighty God, the Father eternal, that He gave His only begotten Son to die for the sin of the world, and that whosoever shall believe in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life.

Jesus Christ, the Messiah is the Son of God, and according to the Holy Bible, the spoken word of God written, He was crucified, died and was buried.  On the third day He arose from the dead- physically, bodily resurrected after dying, not a spiritual resurrection, but resurrected by the power of God to a new, glorified, immortal body!  And later, on the Mount of Olives with His disciples, He ascended up above the clouds and out of their sight and up to heaven, where He sits on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.

And He will return in the same manner, riding on the clouds, with great, great power and might and glory, shinning like the sun, at the trumpets roar, on a white horse followed by His armies of angels and saints.  And He shall crush His enemies.  And He, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, shall set up His Kingdom, the Kingdom of God on earth, and He shall sit on the throne of David; and He shall rule from Jerusalem and His kingdom shall last a thousand years until the end, when there shall be a new heaven and a new earth, and the eternal city of God, the New Jerusalem shall come down from heaven to the earth.  And so shall all believers in Jesus Christ, the saved, dwell for all eternity in light with GOD: the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit…forever and ever and ever…

How great is His love?

How great is His power and might that He created everything out of nothing by His spoken word, “Let there be.”  And in an instant, it was!

Everything working perfectly just as GOD planned.  So wonderful, so majestic, so awesome, so incomprehensible, so beyond finding out how, let alone trying to understand with are small, finite mind.

O, the glory of God; O, the wonders of God; O, the mighty acts of God throughout history! O, the blessings of God in my life…I could never count them all; they are so many without number!

O, the great Shepherd, and we, the flock that He shepherds…praise and glory and thanksgiving unto GOD…O, Jesus, how mighty all the things you did!  O, Jesus, my Lord, my Savior, my all.

For,

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.  He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the  still waters.  He restores my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

How great Thou art, Lord, how great Thou art.

Amen.

Think About It: Today

What if I told you one day you, in Christ Jesus, will fly?  What if I told you GOD has a plan for your life, a perfect plan for those who believe on His Son, whom He sent?  A perfect, beautiful plan HE made before there was any thing created?  What if I told you that no man can come to Christ unless the Father draws him?  And that no one can come to the Father except through the Son, Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah, the Christ?  What if I told you that one day, perhaps soon, we shall not all die, but be changed into immortal bodies at the command of Jesus, faster than the twinkling of an eye, and shall rise with all the resurrected believers of the Church Age-the Age of Grace, and meet the Lord Jesus in the air, above the clouds, and together follow Him to Heaven?  Would you believe me? And would you believe all I have just written comes straight out of the New Testament of the Holy Bible?  Go ahead…make my day!  Read the spoken word of God written, and be not influenced by lying spirits, but believe!  Don’t take puny man’s word for it, but God’s word!

You really can know your future…your whole family’s future…it’s all right there in the Holy Bible!  But that’s too easy, right?  Make it real hard and fuzzy and dark and complicated, and don’t read it, don’t talk about, certainly not in church, but continue to be mystified, misled, and fed the liberal, far out version-stupid-can’t make sense of it-myth, versions you have probably been taught-or another “real” sense to seek, you or the priest, and simply explain it away as good verses evil, and that’s it!  Eat, drink, and be merry, for when you die, that it! Right?   WRONG!

This life is a very short life compared to eternity for us-we who believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of the living, eternal, almighty GOD…and that He died for our sins and saved us, so that all who believe in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life in Him!

Salvation is found in the Holy Bible and that it is none other than Jesus Christ…Jesus Christ who will one day return to the earth, after the Rapture, after the seven year Tribulation, after the Antichrist, False Prophet, and Satan are defeated by Christ, THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, who shall set-up the Kingdom of God on earth and we saints shall reign with Him a thousand years on earth, and then shall follow him into ETERNITY IN THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH, AND THE NEW JERUSALEM, WHICH SHALL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN FROM GOD, and so shall we ever be with the Lord our God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.  So comfort, joy, hope with one another these most precious things the LORD has promised, as it is written in Holy Scripture, and all Scripture must and will be fulfilled!

For this then is our sacred anthem (Romans 8:24-39):

“For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for?  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we no not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.”

What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?

He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect?  It is God that justifies.

Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For Thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through Him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, blessed and holy Trinity, one GOD, forever and ever…

Amen.

Praise and Glory

To Him be the praise and glory forever! Ever notice one of the recurring themes in the Psalms of the Old Testament? That’s right. Give to the Lord God Almighty your best…give Him the praise and the glory that belongs to Him for all the mighty acts He has done from Creation and forward throughout history. Every morning, during the day, and when we go to sleep, we ought to be able to thank Him for our creation and preservation and guiding hand in our lives.

How many of His great acts can you name? Even if you can only think of the six days of Creation by His spoken word, even if, than that’s awesome baby!

Do you smile when you see a rainbow?  Do you thrill when you see the new flowers of spring and summer…how they seem to be spreading their beauty upward as if, with outstretched hands, they are praising GOD, they are giving Him the glory!  How much more so us?  You and I?  Every day, every day if our lives we should thank God for His goodness and blessings, and all things beautiful and lovely in the world. He showers upon us blessings, which, most of the time we don’t even know it, but there it is!  Every day, every day in our precious lives we should praise His holy, almighty name forever and ever!

To you, O GOD, Lord and Savior, to You only be all honor, and glory, and praise, and acclaim: the mighty, eternal God who is carrying out the Plan of the Ages in every century, even unto our time now today!

O Lord God, in whom we live, and move and have our being…who only forgives our sins, who saves us from the wrath to come, and who has planned for us who love Him, the unimaginable promises of eternal life with Him in Heaven, on earth in His Kingdom of a thousand years, then to the new heaven and earth, and the New Jerusalem which shall come down to the earth from God in heaven, and we immortal ones shall live there and in the Lord our God, in the Father, His Son, Jesus,  and also with the Holy Spirit, the  blessed Holy Trinity forever and ever…

Amen.

Think About It: Yesterday

Brother Monk, you are so faithful in reading through the Holy Bible, something you seem to do each year.  Not only that, Brother Monk, but you are steadfast in your Morning and Evening prayer devotionals!  O, that the rest of Christendom would do likewise, how much better all would be!

Here is something to ponder, Father Monk:

After King Solomon, the former Kingdom of Israel was divided into the Northern Kingdom-Israel, and the Southern Kingdom, Judah, each with their own king.  Under these two kings, they went away from the LORD their God and went after demons whom they worshiped as idols made with human hands, and they sacrificed to them, and they even sacrificed their very own children and burnt them in the fire to Molech, the pagan god!  They did evil in the sight of the LORD! Their hands and hearts were bloody, as was the land! These were evil, wicked kings!

But when there arose good kings, who believed and sought the Lord their GOD,the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and walked in His commandments, and did good, the LORD protected them and blessed them, and there was peace and joy and abundance in all the land!

And that principle is still in effect today!  Seek the Lord Jesus, the Son of the Living and eternal God, the Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and all things, and by His power all things consist and work together in harmony. He rules…He is sovereign over all things-the earth, the weather, life, kingdoms, new ideas and events, mankind!  Take heed, and look up!

In Romans, chapter nine, Paul wrote:

“As it is written Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

What shall we say then?  Is there unrighteousness with God?  God forbid!

For He said to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy

For the Scripture said unto Pharaoh,

Even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show My power in you, and that My name might be declared throughout all the earth.

Therefore has He mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardens.

Thou will say then unto Me, why does He yet find fault?  For who has resisted His will?

No, but, O man, who art thou that replies against God?  Shall the thing formed say unto Him that formed it, Why have You made me thus?

Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?

What if God, willing to show His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

And that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had before prepared unto glory, Even us, whom He has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”

Think about it.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
