Valentines?

Valentine’s day, Heart’s day, Cupid’s day what ever it is called is an overly commercialize occasion (not a legal holiday in any country). A billion cards exchanged in a year, dozens and dozens of flowers sold for a time of love and romance.

What we do not know that Paganism is masquerading in this event. Cupid a widely know character but did you know that Cupid is a Roman god of desire and  erotic love (lust), attraction and affection. The chubby cute winged angel we see at commercials isn’t who he really is, the son of Venus ( Roman goddess of love) and Mars (Roman god of war) in Roman myths. Cupid is a deity which has the power to fill people with uncontrollable desires (Mainly lust). If your a Christian and you admire the chubby angel with heart point arrows you should think again. You will be promoting another god which procures people to fornicate and become infatuated with lust.

Lust is a problem for everyone, In James 1:15 (KJV)  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Lust very serious to God therefore we should take it seriously.

I know most people say Valentines is a celebration of love, but that is not what most people is doing.And if Christians is ever to celebrate love it should be everyday from the moment Christ saved them from Hell beneath. 1 John 4:19 (KJV)  We love him, because he first loved us.This is the greatest love (Jn. 15:13) to celebrate and not fleshly lust and romance as people tend to do.

I believe in celebrating love but only the love of Christ. The love worth of all my attention and more so. For those who do not have this love please do consider the love of Christ, trust him today as your Saviour and you will have the most fulfilling love any one can show.The love of Christ is the only love that makes me to love my enemies (Matt. 5:44), and love others more than myself. The love that is giving rather than taking, that is Christ’s love for the world (Jn.3:16).

Oh, Glory What My Eyes Shall See!

We as finite beings have limitations. We cannot fly like a bird, run like a cheetah, or even swim like a fish. Even the best athletes in the world get tired. The smartest person in the world cant solve the worlds dilemma. Oh, Yes we invent amazing things to cope for what we lack, yet there is always a void we cannot fill.

Have you had a time in your life when you’re introduced to a place that’s new?  Maybe your parents took you to the park as a kid, a new house, the mountains, the beach, or carnival perhaps. The feeling is indescribable, and you want that feeling to linger. Well the feeling of Glory in Heaven is more, unfathomable and as the Apostle Paul describes “not lawful for a man to utter” 2 Cor. 12:4. The limitations that we now have will not be a boulder, for we will have a glorified body. Our senses only hear sounds, see light, feel objects, smell odor, and taste savor. But in our glorified body, we may see the sounds, taste the light and more unimaginable things that could happened. We may run but not get tired, nor feel the need to sleep.

The comforts that we feel now are incomparable to  the glories God has in store for us, His redeemed. Heaven is a very remarkable place, yet we don’t deserve it. We deserve the otherwise; which is torment and destruction in Hell.

Now give time to thank God for the gift of Eternal Life, and witness to those who doesn’t have it. Don’t get selfish for the gift you don’t deserve. Remember you are just a beggar telling other beggars where to find the bread of life. Don’t be a man blocking to pearly gates to open. Guide them to the door, not block it. Go, tell others of the glory there eyes could see, if they have the Saviour by there side.

Driven to the Breaking Point

Written By: Margaret C Mullings

Blow after blow the tempestuous angry sea waves
Beat against the sandy shore line, causing a great erosion
And as you face each disappointment and feel your
Heart ache with pain……it is as if you are being driven
To the breaking point. Sometimes it may feel like you
Are on a roller coaster ride! Over coming and solving
Some problems, only to experience more devastating
News, having to deal with some deep issues….driven
To the breaking point.
Yes blow after blow the tempestuous angry sea waves
Beat against the sandy shore line, causing a great
Erosion with each disappointment and heartache
Drives you to the point of giving up all of self will
In total submission to the perfect plans and
Purposes of God for your life!
What blessings to say to Abba Father like Jesus
Said to His Father in the book of Luke 22:42,
” Saying, Father, if Thou be willing, remove this
Cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine,
Be done. ” Driven to the breaking point!

Logo for Got the Word is Up!

IMG_3953 (1)

This logo was made by a friend of mine Mary Bethany, she is the daughter of my Pastor and Mentor Dr. Gerald Sutek. I asked her to make this logo for me and she gladly said “yes”. I hardly hear that from women. She is a very good artist in many ways possible.

The logo was designed to be simple yet meaningful. The big bold statement “Got the Word?” implies do you have the Word of God in your hands, do you know it, do you study it, and do you have it as a part of your life. I have thought of this phrase to simply whisper into the hearts of the reader their necessity of God’s word.

The Bible with flying pages portrays the publishing of God’ word. The Internet the medium of communication I use to publish the word of God is one helpful tool. Preaching through out the world without even taking a step outside my house. This does not mean I do not go out and preach publickly but  I am simply extending my pulpit to the cyber world.

I dearly appreciate the creator of the logo, And my prayers is that this may attract more readers and become well visited site because of it. My goal in the near future if God would allow is to have more interesting articles written and published in this site. Articles that would make a reader think and think again until they grasp the truth of the word of God.

I’VE LIVED LONG ENOUGH…

AN ESSAY IN ANSWER TO

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/14/city-houston-demands-pastors-turn-over-sermons/

I’ve lived long enough and ministered long enough to see the full circle. When I was in high school (early sixties) without an inkling of understanding about sodomy, our evaluation of a “Queer” was the lowest conceivable rank of a homosapian.  Later, while in Bible college in 1972 the newspaper had an article about a police raid on a men’s room at Pensacola beach.  There were political celebrities involved and the debate was whether to print their names in the Pensacola News Journal.  I wrote a letter to the editor in favour of publishing them, while many others wrote in favour of the more socially acceptable, politically correct, comfortable silence.

ANY CHRISTIAN SOLDIER WORTH HIS WEAPON

The Bible demands that a person choose sides on this issue.  A Christian soldier has no choice.  He must stand on the side of righteousness with his Commander and Chief, or else be a defector to the army of the god of this world.  But the average Christian is so swayed by the love of the world that they have been deceived into silence, tolerance, or, at worst, compromise.

The verses commanding a Christian soldier to muster to the side of righteousness are plenty, but the stay-in-the-barracks Christian soldiers are too busy watching the arm-chair quarterbacks play the game of Christianity on TV to search the scriptures.

Lev 18:22  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Pro 28:4  They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

Mat 10:18  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

These verses call to arms any soldier worth his weapon.  When a Christian soldier ignores these commands, is he not insubordinate?  We live in a day of parade-dress soldiers in the army of the Lord.  When the parade trumpet blows, they grab their burnished sword and they are off to impress the crowd.  But when the battle trumpet blows, they cherish their uniform so much that they will not jump in the foxhole, lest they tarnish their image.

Jer 48:10  Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

FELONY

I took my first pastorate in Tallahassee, Florida in 1975.  The laws concerning sodomy made it a felony to be caught committing such crimes against nature.  By the way, Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines sodomy as “A crime against nature”, while other modern dictionaries are quite soft toward the abomination. Those promoting sodomy in our “Christian” nation were working hard at the grass-roots level for societal acceptance.  I built one of the first changeable letter signs and mounted it between two telephone poles  in front of my church located on a major route in and out of the capitol of the state.  Many citizens drove out of their way to and from the city, just to view my weekly sign preaching.  My signs preached against every violation of the Bible that became a current and popular issue in the news.  A few may remember that a pop singer named Anita Bryant took a bold stand against the sodomite agenda.  She was much bolder than most pastors of that day.  She sang commercials for the Florida Orange Juice company, so in order to affect her pocketbook, the sodomites boycotted Florida Orange Juice.  This was a very hot issue in that day, so I put on the sign the double pun, “We support Anita in putting the squeeze on the fruits.”  This sign made it to print in the Flambeau newspaper, which was the Florida State University campus newspaper.  Among the 14 churches in a city of 120,000 people, my church was the only Independent Baptist church that was clearly vocal on the subject of sodomy in that era. We preached publickly and wrote news articles and letters to the editor against it.

SODOMITE CHURCH???

About this same time, the Metropolitan Community Church, which is a sodomite assembly, started a local chapter in Tallahassee.  This “church” exists for the sole purpose of creating a comfortable religious atmosphere for sodomites.  They are still functioning world-wide…check them out on the web.  The pastor of this organization, Robert Angel, was a practicing sodomite living openly with the assistant pastor in the parsonage.  This group used a bible with their own twisted private interpretation.  For instance, they taught that Lev. 18:22 was under the law and was included in the context with eating pork and therefore was not applicable.  Romans chapter 1 was written by Paul, who “also did not like women in red dresses.” They were referring to Paul’s admonition on women’s modesty.

Our ministry stood boldly and publicly against this abomination.  We preached against them on our signboard.  We picketed and preached in front of the sodomite bars and clubs.  We made loud noises and protested against this beginning of later horrors.  Not one other Independent Baptist church joined us in this effort.

Tallahassee Ministerial Association

The MCC became concerned for their image and so applied for acceptance into the Tallahassee Ministerial Association.  The Tallahassee Democrat newspaper gave the association free press, whereupon they announced that the MCC was under such persecution that the ministers of Tallahassee felt it was their duty to provide this church with credibility and shelter.  I am not exaggerating.  I called the president of the association and made an appointment with him in his office.  He was the associate pastor of the First Methodist Church.  I asked him if he was present at the meeting that made this decision and if he had voted.  He said that he had voted for this action.  I then asked if he was aware that Robert Angel was an openly practicing sodomite.  He answered “Yes”.  I then asked him why he would vote for something that was so against the Bible.  His reply: “Who knows what good can come from our putting our arm of fellowship around this brother in Christ?” Remember, this is 1979.

FLANK MOVEMENT

I hastily formed the “Bible Believing Preachers’ Association” which, although thrown together quickly, was as legitimate as the Tallahassee Ministerial Association.  My association was formed for one purpose only: to publicly expose the MCC.  I, as a local pastor, felt burdened for the people of Tallahassee, because they truly did not have all the information on MCC or Robert Angel.  In theory, the average citizen could live on the same street as MCC and not be able to distinguish it from any other church in town.  I imagined that if a young boy happened to be invited to MCC and his ignorant father didn’t want to be bothered with “church” that the boy could wander, even with permission, into MCC on a bright, beautiful Sunday morn.  Consider that sodomites do not reproduce, they recruit.  Therefore, I felt it to some degree my duty as a pastor/soldier to at least warn these ignorant, lost sheep concerning the wolf in the pasture.

SO MUCH FOR FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

I wrote a detailed exposé on both the organization and the “pastor” and secured twice as many names on my announcement as the ministerial association had on theirs.  I also had a significant monetary commitment backing the publication of this in the local paper.  I marched into the newspaper office and asked for an appointment with the publisher.  I showed him our announcement and asked for the same courtesy as he had given the other association.  He was aghast!  He could not believe what he was reading.  He looked me square in the face and asked, “Is this true?” I strongly affirmed it was and challenged him to make one phone call to the number on the announcement, knowing that Robert Angel himself would confirm the information.  The publisher replied, “That is absolutely terrible, but I cannot publish this.”  I said that I had anticipated his denial and was more than prepared to get this published in his newspaper, as paid advertising.  He told me straightforwardly that he could not publish this for any amount of money; so much for freedom of the press.  I then told him that I was going to publish this myself and circulate it widely in businesses and government offices in the city and that I intended to put a disclaimer at the bottom that the Tallahassee Democrat refused to publish this announcement.

XEROX TO THE RESCUE

One of the best men in my church was a repairman for Xerox copy machines, and he told me just to give him a number for the copies to be printed.  We put them out by the hundreds and flooded Tallahassee with this warning.

LONG STORY SHORT

The sodomites rallied to the battle and came from all over the state to protest on the steps of the capitol building and call for legislative action to change Florida law in favour of sodomy.  Remember this was now 1980.  I have news articles showing this assembly, along with our opposing group.  My name and photo are on the front page, along with Troy Perry the founder of the international MCC.

SNEAKY ATTACHMENT

The proposed new law change had a clause in it that few were aware of.  It read that the new law would make it legal to practice sodomy but, at the same time, illegal for the private citizen to teach their children in any way against sodomy. Does this sound currently familiar? Public schools, sex education, or church sermons subject to government approval?  This was 1980.

LIVE TV DEBATE

Robert Angel and I debated on live TV in Tallahassee.  He made his predictable twisted argument against each Bible reference on the subject, but at the end he told me something rather pathetically prophetic.  He told me that, “Society has learned to accept adultery…and now they are just going to have to learn to accept homosexuality.” This was 34 years ago.  WOW!

IN THE CLOSET OR ON THE BATTLE FIELD

Back then, the sodomite was still in the closet and the righteous soldiers had a chance to keep it that way and even lock the door and throw away the key.  But the righteous soldiers did not rally to the cause and now the righteous soldiers are in the closet and have swallowed their own key and are hoping that the sodomites do not knock on the door.  This is a disgraceful condition for the army of the King of Kings to be in.  Because of this impotency, the battle has been lost on abortion, prayer, and Bible reading in public schools, sex education, normal marriage and the national mind-set toward normal relationships.  But now, thanks to the news media, federal judges in every state, Hollywood, popular politicians and the money-backed sodomite propaganda machine, the average citizen, whether Christian or heathen, has been successfully programmed to extend this unbiblical attitude far beyond silent toleration of sodomy, all the way to defending and vocally assenting to it.  What a shameful thing to go so far against clear Bible instruction.

SO, WHY ARE WE SHOCKED

So, why is it shocking that we are being demanded to submit our anti-sodomite sermons for government approval?  The wimps and weasels that conveniently cowered out of the fight three and a half decades ago have not gained spiritual strength in these last days.

THE BIGGER THEY ARE THE WEAKER THEY FIGHT

In conclusion, allow me to tell one final story from the olden days.  When I was soliciting for signatures on the exposé for the newspaper I made an appointment with the pastor of the largest church with a similar description in Tallahassee, FL.  Dr. Rayburn Blair was a giant among the BBF.  He was very condescending during our meeting.  I presented him with the announcement listing many signatures which he knew.  With a smirk, he handed it back and said, “I am sorry but I don’t sign anything I don’t write.”  As I received the announcement I told him if he preferred, he could write it and then I would sign it.  He smiled and said, “Don’t worry…………..you’ll mellow.”  My last words to him were, “I don’t want to mellow…………it’s too close to rotten.”

I wonder if that is what the church of Jesus Christ has become in these last minutes before He returns…………………………MELLOW!

WHAT BOTHERS ME ABOUT THE NEW JUDGMENT ON SODOMY

Pro 21:30  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.

I have purposely delayed any comment for several days since the “court jesters” made their curtsey to King Public Opinion and Queen Political Correctness. This delay was so that I might first read what the Christian celebrity leaders of our country have to say about this perverted fiasco.  Some of these celebrity leaders are good men and have ministered to me at various times. But what bothers me about these men whose weighty words carry strong influence is that they all give their opinion, or their call on the issue.  These opinions can be exhorting, but in the end they are just opinions and the Lord pays about the same amount of attention to them as He did to Elihu’s opinion.  Why is it that no one seems to be able to quote the Lord’s decree on the matter?

Lev 18:22  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

I haven’t heard this yet from any of our leaders: why not? If we are Bible believers, then why replace the Lord’s decree with our opinion? The safest way to play this tragedy is to simply quote the decree of the Lord, and then our adversaries are forced to either shut their mouths or condemn the Lord’s decree.  I like the simplicity of the Lord’s decrees, both in Leviticus, as well as in Romans 1:26,27.  There are no loop holes, no compromises, no misunderstandings.  What is it about Lev. 18:22 that you don’t seem to understand?  It is not that they cannot understand Romans chapter 1; it is that they cannot believe it, and that is the point entirely.  If I am going to jail for something I believe or say, I want to make it crystal clear that I stand with the Lord’s decree, not my commentary on His decree.

MARRIAGE IS NOT THE ISSUE!!!!!!!!!

Marriage is not the issue here; sodomy is the issue.  Sodomy is a sin in the classification of abomination.  Sodomy is defined by Webster’s 1828 English dictionary as, “A crime against nature”.  Four simple words that ring clear.  If you go to a modern dictionary, they will ramble on in ambiguity until you are convinced there must be something you don’t quite understand about the word or the subject, and therefore you should not be so hasty in your condemnation.  Marriage is not the issue: who cares if they marry!  Do you care if murderers marry? Does anyone care if thieves or liars marry?  Does it make any difference whether perverts marry? Does it make it better or worse?  Of course not.

Oh yes, I fully understand all of the possible ramifications of this decision made by the highest of authorities (above God) in our formerly free land. This will especially complicate things for my fellow publick ministers and campus preachers in particular.  Thirty-five years ago I purposed in my heart not to defile myself with the king’s meat when I successfully fought this same enemy on the state level.  I see the sifting of the wheat and the chaff in all of this. Better not keep back your sword (Jer. 48:10). Choices must be made quickly or we will be found as the Israelites in the time of battle: “that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people”.

THEY ARE SODOMITES…NOTHING ELSE

Why do we dance around this Biblical term? The good Lord has always called them Sodomites.  The King James Bible calls them Sodomites because that is clearly what they are, sons and daughters of Sodom, as in Sodom and Gomorrah.  If you claim to be so closely associated with the King James Bible, why are some of you quoting the NIV and other perversions? The term Sodomite is universally hated by the Sodomites because of the Biblical association with their perverted ancestors who were destroyed because of this abomination…read Ezek 16:50-58… “lewdness”, “wickedness”, “reproach”, “shame” and “abomination”.  Notice the Lord’s choice of words to describe such perverts (which we are enjoined to “love” and not “judge” according to the words of the pope and those who have teamed up with his ecumenical council).  Why should we play into their hands by adopting and using their choice of words?  They don’t mind the word homosexual, which really is more of an oxymoron than a proper term.  They love “gay”, which is not a proper description but a mockery of a perfectly fine word commonly used some 30 years ago and only recently bludgeoned out of our vocabulary.  I refuse to allow them to choose the terms we use to battle them…they are Sodomites.

THE SODOMITE’S TRUMP CARD

These crooked (as opposed to straight) reprobates have successfully convinced supposedly sane Bible believers that Sodomites were “born that way”, in order to nullify the righteous judgment of God and to gain the upper hand in debate.  THEY WERE NOT BORN THAT WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they were born that way, then the Lord would have no right to declare a decree against what he created and condemn activity that He ordained. God would be a hypocrite to condemn them or to judge what they do to be wrong, sinful, and abominable.  This is a slimy attempt by the god of this world to have the case of sodomy thrown out of the court of the Lord.  Romans chapter one clearly describes the process by which a person journeys down the road of rejection of the revelation of God and debases himself in the pit of Sodomy. It is by choice.  This argument is not valid and will be stricken from the record of the court.

In Romania I took a photo of a billboard with a picture of a newborn.  On the baby’s wrist was a name tag bearing one word: “Homosexual”.  If this can possibly be true…just a little bit…then throw your Bibles away and quit preaching, because they all win and we lose.  The photo below is filthy, confusing propaganda right out of the pit.

MARK 16:15

Think for just a moment; which of the following scenarios has the bigger effect? A Bible believing pastor in our circles can preach against this villainy in his pulpit to 50 to 200 people in an average Bible-believing church…OR…he could preach to a thousand to ten thousand people if he would just step out the door.  The Sodomites now have the upper seats in the synagogue because 35 years ago they decided to come out of the closet and march down the streets.

WHAT BOTHERS ME ABOUT THE NEW JUDGMENT ON SODOMY

Pro 21:30  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.

I have purposely delayed any comment for several days since the “court jesters” made their curtsey to King Public Opinion and Queen Political Correctness. This delay was so that I might first read what the Christian celebrity leaders of our country have to say about this perverted fiasco.  Some of these celebrity leaders are good men and have ministered to me at various times. But what bothers me about these men whose weighty words carry strong influence is that they all give their opinion, or their call on the issue.  These opinions can be exhorting, but in the end they are just opinions and the Lord pays about the same amount of attention to them as He did to Elihu’s opinion.  Why is it that no one seems to be able to quote the Lord’s decree on the matter?

Lev 18:22  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

I haven’t heard this yet from any of our leaders: why not? If we are Bible believers, then why replace the Lord’s decree with our opinion? The safest way to play this tragedy is to simply quote the decree of the Lord, and then our adversaries are forced to either shut their mouths or condemn the Lord’s decree.  I like the simplicity of the Lord’s decrees, both in Leviticus, as well as in Romans 1:26,27.  There are no loop holes, no compromises, no misunderstandings.  What is it about Lev. 18:22 that you don’t seem to understand?  It is not that they cannot understand Romans chapter 1; it is that they cannot believe it, and that is the point entirely.  If I am going to jail for something I believe or say, I want to make it crystal clear that I stand with the Lord’s decree, not my commentary on His decree.

MARRIAGE IS NOT THE ISSUE!!!!!!!!!

Marriage is not the issue here; sodomy is the issue.  Sodomy is a sin in the classification of abomination.  Sodomy is defined by Webster’s 1828 English dictionary as, “A crime against nature”.  Four simple words that ring clear.  If you go to a modern dictionary, they will ramble on in ambiguity until you are convinced there must be something you don’t quite understand about the word or the subject, and therefore you should not be so hasty in your condemnation.  Marriage is not the issue: who cares if they marry!  Do you care if murderers marry? Does anyone care if thieves or liars marry?  Does it make any difference whether perverts marry? Does it make it better or worse?  Of course not.

Oh yes, I fully understand all of the possible ramifications of this decision made by the highest of authorities (above God) in our formerly free land. This will especially complicate things for my fellow publick ministers and campus preachers in particular.  Thirty-five years ago I purposed in my heart not to defile myself with the king’s meat when I successfully fought this same enemy on the state level.  I see the sifting of the wheat and the chaff in all of this.

Heaven at Last

By Horatius Bonar

Angel voices sweetly singing, Echoes through the blue dome ringing, News of wondrous gladness bringing… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Now beneath us all the grieving, All the wounded spirit’s heaving, All the woe of hopes deceiving… Ah ’tis heaven at last!

Sin for ever left behind us, Earthly visions cease to blind us, Fleshly fetters cease to bind us… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

On the jasper threshold standing, Like a pilgrim safely landing See, the strange bright scene expanding… Ah ’tis heaven at last!

What a city! what a glory! Far beyond the brightest story Of the ages old and hoary… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Softest voices silver pealing, Freshest fragrances spirit-healing, Happy hymns around us stealing… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Gone the vanity and folly, Gone the dark and melancholy, Come the joyous and the holy… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Not a broken blossom yonder, Not a link can snap asunder, Stay’d the tempest, sheathed the thunder… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Not a tear-drop ever falleth, Not a pleasure ever palleth, Song to song for ever calleth… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Christ Himself the living splendour, Christ the sunlight mild and tender; Praises to the Lamb we render… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Now at length the veil is rended, Now the pilgrimage is ended, And the saints their thrones ascended… Ah, ’tis heaven at last!

Broken death’s dread bands that bound us, Life and victory around us, Christ the King Himself hath crowned us… Ah,’tis heaven at last!
