Well, we made it to 2009. If the the train we are riding on keeps heading for a brick wall like it is now, 2009 should be a terrible year for the heathen. You however, have been spoken to by the King of Kings and it would be wise to recall some of the words spoken to you:
Matt 6 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Foreclosures and economic calamity have no power in the kingdom of God. We eat from the kings table not the worlds table. This is not hard stuff to grasp, seek first the kingdom of God...that's it..do that and stop worrying. I look forward to this year. The day the escape happens will be more joyous than any lottery a person could win or any other worldly good fortune. Happiness and joy are INTERNAL events, they take place INSIDE OF YOU not out in the world. Where is the kingdom of God? Inside of you..
Luke 17:21 Nor will they say, 'Look, here it is!' or, 'There
... They can't say, 'Here it is!' or 'There it is!' You see, the kingdom of God is within you." ... or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
When you pray, your focus shifts onto the kingdom of God instead of the world. The destruction of this world does not sadden me in the least, I rejoice over it. As a member of a kingdom that is not of this world, I want our Father's kingdom to come. There are no crooked politicians or wall street bankers in our Fathers kingdom to rape and pillage away our treasure. When our Lord, Jesus Christ comes to rule, he will do it with a rod of iron, and there will be no more (s)elections to see who gets to exploit the poor next, there will only be a righteous judge and his servants. What's not to look forward to? This world makes me sick, in a nausea kind of way. The wickedness and greed and evil and selfishness and intrigues and backstabbing and arrogance and hautiness etc etc etc who wants more of that? Apparently many do. In fact, tv show ratings tell us that the shows with the most elements I listed above will get the best ratings, what does that tell you about people today?
I look forward to being around real christians instead of christians in name only. I look forward to all the lies and fraud perpetrated in the name of God being exposed and destroyed along with every thief who perpetrates it today.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
If you look at the words I highlighted above and look at todays babylonian form of christianity, you can see how different they are like night and day. Todays churchianity preaches and teaches and adovates through its organizational SYSTEM everything that is opposite of the highlighted words above. Blessed are the peacemakers yet churchianity was the largest advocate of George Bush's wars. Blessed are the merciful yet churchianity has advocated violence toward those at abortion clinincs, yea the abortions are wrong, so you take out a gun and shoot the mother and thats right? Men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of bad things against you when you speak the truth, yet todays churchianity gets along quite well in the world. In fact, "Americas pastor" Rick Warren will be blessing Obama here shortly, that shows you just how "reviled and hated" he is...(not). Warren and all those who participate in the babylonian form of jiffy lube christianity today are the problem. They are more guilty than the world or satan for mens souls because the are supposed to represent the way of truth but instead they are a den of vipers, satans children.
Jesus did'nt bad mouth the prostitutes and tax collectors while on earth, he told them to stop sinning. Jesus only bad mouthed ONE GROUP...religious people. Organizational religion had Jesus crucified then and they'd do it again today if they got half the chance. If Jesus walked into 95% of todays so called churches he'd be escorted out the door by ushers or security within minutes. Do you think todays hireling pastors would tolerate some man telling them to dismantle their self glorifying buildings and power? No way. Todays hireling pastor/tax exempt CEO's are just fine with jiffy lube style, so called christian "services" for a fee a couple times a week.
These men make MERCHANDISE out of you...
2 Peter 2:3 And in their greed they will exploit you with FALSE
... And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth
You are nothing but a shrink wrapped commodity on a store shelf to these men. Yea, they are good speakers and yea..they seem to care...all good con men can do these things. Todays hireling CEO/pastors want your money, now more than ever. Tell one of these guys that you are giving to God by putting every cent you give directly into the mouths of the hungry and homless and you'll see a pastor get red faced mad. That should tell you something. God's word is real food, your pastor does'nt "feed you" God's word does, don't let them lie to you anymore. If you have a bible you can be fed by God's word. The Holy Spirit will teach you, what do you need a hireling con man for?
1 John 2:27
...and you, the anointing that ye did receive from him, in you it doth remain, and ye have no need that any one may teach you, but as the same anointing doth teach you concerning all, and is true, and is not a lie, and even as was taught you, ye shall remain in him.
There it is again, and I was'nt even looking for it REMAIN IN HIM....in Christ in Christ in Christ..two most important words in the Bible.
May the Lord bless you and keep you this year, may his face shine upon you and may he grant you peace. Remain in him...
