Jesus predicted there would be hatred for Christians

Earth6391

What did Jesus say about how His own would be treated while on this earth?

 

Jesus made some very relevant statements concerning the hatred of His followers (also called Christians) a long time ago.  In the book of John from the Bible Jesus stated these words to His disciples,  “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”  (see John 15:19)  In verse 18, we read that Jesus made it clear that He would be the object of this hatred before it would come to Christians.   “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.”

The Bible also makes it clear that any hostility Christians face is actually aimed at God Himself.   If you don’t believe that, all one needs to do is take a look at the Ten Commandments.   Looking at just a few of the commandments, ask yourself if you have ever lied, used God’s name as a cuss word,  lusted (Jesus said that is committing adultery in the heart – see Matthew 5:27,28).  had hateful thoughts toward a brother, or failed to put God first?  If so, then we are seen from God’s perspective as breaking His perfect, holy law.  Take a moment to think about what this means.   Perhaps you find or have found yourself getting enraged at God.  Any anger or lack of humility we have toward God is the hostility we have by nature toward Him.  But our mind and flesh filled desires are to naturally desire to do evil and break God’s law.

“…the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.”  see Romans 8:7,8

We all by nature deserve the judgment of God because we have broken God’s law.   We have all committed crimes against God who cannot have sin in His presence.  (Sin is the breaking of God’s perfect law and we are guilty of that as seen in the good person test. ) The question we all need to ask is what can be done, if anything, to remedy our relationship with God?  If God judges us who are deserving of Hell because we have sinned against Him, is that the end of us or is there a way of escape?

 “It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”  Hebrews 9:27

For anyone sensitive to finding out the answer to this they will find it.   You may be surprised or not but the answer has nothing to do with good deeds we do or don’t do.  It has nothing to do with what sacrifice we can or cannot make for God either.  We cannot earn back a right relationship with God.  In fact, the answer really has nothing to do with us at all but Him.  And the answer will not be because one joined the right church, or became a better person or found Religion.   There is no religion that has the answer for how to escape God’s judgment and restore a right relationship with Him because the answer is found only in God in the Bible.  God Himself is the only one who can provide a way of escape from His judgment.   Because His love is so great for us, He did that Himself 2000 years ago in the person of Jesus Christ.   Jesus Christ is the perfect, holy sacrifice who paid the penalty for us breaking His own law.

“now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”  Hebrews 9:26

“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Jesus Christ is the answer for all humankind to be saved from coming judgment against sin.  Satan (God’s arch-enemy)  knows it and hates it.   Therefore he hates true Christians (followers of Jesus) because he hated God first.  More about this in a later post.  But there is hope because Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice and payment, satisfying the great wrath that God has against sin.

“Therefore He [Jesus] is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”  Hebrews 7:25

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.  For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”  see Romans 8:9-10

Republican Presidential Candidates should drop out and support Donald Trump or Ted Cruz – Part Two

R_candidates

I mentioned in part one that the lesser tier Republican candidates for president should drop out of their own race and instead come out in support of Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

Although I made this proposal,  I realize it is quite improbable at this stage of the race to have  candidates such as Mr. Carson, Mr. Rubio,  Mr. Bush, Mrs. Fiorina or Mr. Paul among others actually drop out and support Ted Cruz or Donald Trump.    And there are reasons for why this won’t happen anytime soon.

First of all, there are egos and pride involved and many of the candidates who are not doing well right now are actually more establishment type candidates who still think they can win.  However, one won’t find these candidates proposing a ban on Muslim travel to America in an attempt to curb Islamic murderers coming to our country as Donald Trump has.  Whatever the issue is though even if it makes sense, it is not politically correct.    We won’t see most of the lower tier candidates and most public figures in general, come out and denounce the Islamification of America and the world.  We don’t see much truthful examination of the doctrine of Islam or the doctrines of Muhammad.   A proper examination of Islam is not politically correct.  Many of these other candidates will not come out and say they support the rounding up of illegal immigrants and sending them back to their homeland in the strongest of terms.  Their must be a drastic and publicly made distinction made between what is right and what is wrong.  A distinction between who is right and who is wrong is also necessary when it comes to the country’s debt, terrorism, social issues, keeping America safe, and who will actually fix problems rather than create them.      Simply put, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are anything but establishment candidates while Ted Cruz is a strong vocal pro life follower of Jesus Christ.  This point alone is why most on the left will do whatever it takes to destroy him.

One simple way we can know these two candidates are not establishment candidates is by looking at how much the media tries to destroy them and will cover them with propaganda created stories.   This tweet on twitter is a perfect example of the hatred the media has for Ted Cruz.

NazaryanTweet

Another non-establishment candidate from the past was Herman Cain.  He was also publicly destroyed by the left.  He was black (which the left claims Republicans hate) but that didn’t matter because it wasn’t about color as many of the left would try to indoctrinate us to believe.  It was about what he believed, as it has always been about.   The left are terrified of what and in who Christians and Conservatives believe in.   In fact they hate Him.  Many thought they had destroyed Jesus when they had Him murdered on a cross for claiming to be God.   Jesus also spoke about repentance for sin (breaking God’s law).   Thankfully, Jesus was who He claimed to be and was raised from the dead by God so people could be saved from His coming Judgment.   Today, I believe Jesus would be murdered again by the same ones who would seek to destroy and torture Bible believing, God-fearing people around the world.

Likewise CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and the left in general hate and fear Donald Trump and  Ted Cruz.   How do I know?  By reading the Bible.  The left hates the God of the Bible and Jesus said they would.   (see Matthew 10:22)

Why are so many people quick to protect murderers?

good_evil

It needs to be pointed out that not all people who call themselves Muslim in actuality are.  And likewise not all people who say they are Christian are actually followers of Jesus.  Of course, this would be true in all belief systems.  In light of this knowledge, I believe it would be fair to say that a true Muslim is one who first and foremost follows Muhammad (which includes his actions and beliefs) and also follow the basic tenets of the Islamic religion.     And this is why the graphic below is so frightening to me and should be frightening to all non-Muslims (Kafirs).

sharia

So why are there are so many people not standing up against this evil that is being perpetrated against humanity?   I believe the answer is simple.  It is because they don’t believe that what is being done is evil (they hate the God of the Bible too) and therefore have become part of the problem.  And some people may not believe that it’s evil enough to care.  While others are ignorant of the facts about what Muhammad did and what his current followers do to non-Muslims.   Still others are just afraid to say what they believe.  We shouldn’t be afraid.  We must stand against evil and sin (breaking God’s commands).

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.”  Proverbs 8:13

Whatever category we fall under, the Bible predicts terrible times ahead.   I hope you are ready before it’s too late and will escape the wrath to come.   Hope has come into the world and His name is Jesus.  www.areyougood.us

In San Bernardino, Paris and around the World, what is going on?

Sb_2004_dt_snowskyline_003a

“Political Correctness”

You may have heard the saying “Follow the money”.   When seeking the source of terror or criminal activity one usually can follow the money and find the answer.   But how about when the terror is based on a belief system?

Despite government authorities statements they were still seeking a motive related to the San Bernardino massacre,  I suggest we can know the motive of the Muslim murderers, not only San Bernardino CA but Paris, New York, the middle-east and elsewhere.   We can know the motive if only we are able to look at history and ideologies.   The answers are right before our eyes yet it seems many in government and law enforcement including the FBI (at least publicly) choose to close their eyes and instead invent motives and causes that remain politically correct.

“Follow the Leader”

The greatest way to know how one is to act within a particular belief is to follow the leader of the belief system.   As example, in Christianity Jesus is the one we are to follow.  Although it’s true that Jesus is more than a “great leader” because He is God–He is the perfect example of what it means to be a Christian.    Therefore, all one needs to do to know about Islam is to see how their leader acted.  In this case the leader is Muhammad.

Motive for the beheadings, mass murder and massacres we see by Muslims committed around the world is simply done because of what Muhammad already did.  He believed in the annihilation and subjugation of societies.   Don’t believe me, watch the video below.

Clash of World Views: NASA discredits itself again by believing in billions of years

480px-AncientMars

In a news story found in the news recently, NASA reported they had found ancient lakes on Mars 2 to 3 billion years ago.  The title states  “NASA confirms ancient lakes existed on Mars 2 to 3 billion years ago” but is it true or lie?  For certain it is unprovable but is it something else?

For those of us who are willing to be truthful about facts, two blaring questions remain: who decided it was 2 or 3 billion years ago and if so, who was there that long ago to prove it?   This a serious and deliberate attempt at mass manipulation and indoctrination by a well-known government agency in this case, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).   But what we see at the heart of this indoctrination is simply a clash of worldviews.  Based on this supposed report, NASA’s worldview does not include God, the Biblical account of creation nor can even be based on realities we actually observe.

If nobody was there that long ago, I do not believe it can be proven to be true,  therefore it should not be reported as truth.   Therefore it can be reported as nothing more than someones’ opinion because it is part of a bigger belief system and religion.

Now I know my view of a six-day creation and that of God Almighty as the Creator of this Earth, the planets, stars, etc is discounted as untrue and considered none provable by all who hold fast to the opposite worldview.   And even if it was provable, the God deniers and God haters wouldn’t believe it and vice versa because we serve different masters.  Therefore the worldviews oppose each other.  I’ll say it again, the worldviews oppose each other for the same reason forces of good and forces of evil oppose each other.

To break it down a bit more, one worldview believes in God and one does not.  One worldview gets promoted by mass media, new outlets, schools, governments and one does not.  The worldview that is heralded as truth is that of macro-Evolution/Darwinian Evolution and millions/billions of years.  Those who subscribe to this belief and there are billions of you (no joke intended) holding to this worldview because it doesn’t involve God. 

As evidenced by NASA’s report and others who promote a Godless worldview believe it because it allows for sin and the breaking of God’s laws without accountability to someone higher than us.  And the Bible states that we all by nature are hostile and at enmity with God. Evidence for that is all vile, slanderous and hurtful comments someone like Ray Comfort and other Christians receive on a daily basis from people who claim they don’t have belief in God.  Therefore, in light of this knowledge I see it normal that I and those few who believe in the worldview that believes in a Creator God,  should also think that holding to a worldview without God to be ludicrous because it’s unprovable and because it is not based on reality.  

The one fact that remains and IS provable however is that the Godless man-centered evolutionary Darwinian worldview goes against the order and perfection we see in nature, and we who trust the Creator God, actually take God at His Word.

“Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”  Romans 1:20

“For by Him [Jesus] all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”   Colossians 1:16

Roseburg Shooter’s Hatred of Christians: Where do you stand?

sheep

There are those who possess true hatred of others which manifests itself through murderous, destructive actions such as we have seen in recent school shootings, homicides, beheadings, beatings and suicide bombings.  But there is also the attempt by some to disguise hatred for others simply for a belief in one person, namely Jesus Christ.  However, whether the hatred manifests itself in the form of ISIS terrorists, Islamic murder, torture or imprisonment, general Jewish and Christian persecution, school shootings, pro-life issues and Biblical marriage bashing, the hatred is the same because it is directed at the same God.  His name is Jesus Christ, who is the one true God and Lord, who we find in the Bible and who the Bible is written about.

Before I continue, I must first mention a different kind of hatred.  There is such a thing as righteous hatred which all persons should possess.  In fact, we would have true peace on this earth, if we all possessed this type of hatred.   This hatred is directed toward what is evil and toward what is called sin (the breaking of God’s moral law – see the good person test).    We all need righteous hatred but that will not be possible without repentance and faith/trust in Jesus Christ.

Unfortunately, sin-filled hatred is the one we all have from birth and as I mentioned already, is directed to none other than the One who we actually need for salvation from His coming judgment of sin.  Therefore our relationship with God has been broken and the consequence is that we all will face God’s judgment of sin someday.  However, this problem of us having a broken relationship with God didn’t always exist.  Let me explain.

In the Garden of Eden (found in Genesis, the first book in the Bible) when a man named Adam and women named Eve lived, there was harmony and right relationship with both their and our Creator, God.   Adam and Eve listened to Satan who is God’s Arch-enemy and broke that perfect sinless relationship they had with God.  They sinned against God and so do we each day–naturally.  If you don’t think so, take a look at the moral law also known as the Ten Commandments and see how you do.    Now, since we have a natural hatred toward God and are enemies of God by nature, the only way to remedy our broken relationship with Him, is to have someone without sin fix our problem.   Therefore the only one holy, who is without sin and perfect in every way who can fix us is God Himself.   He made the sacrifice on a cross in the person of Jesus Christ His Son.  God became flesh and paid the penalty for us breaking His law (the Ten Commandments – See the good test).   He completed the transaction when He rose from the grave defeating death.   With God’s loving provision, we have the only way of escape from sin, and Hell judgment.

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8

“God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.”  1 Timothy 3:16

So, a good question for us to ask ourselves is whether or not we have hatred of sin within ourselves or do we have sin-filled hatred for others?  Christians know the one we should possess but hatred of sin only comes from God once we have repented and put our trust in Him to do the work in us.  If you haven’t already find out more at www.areyougood.us

As News each day Affirms, Jesus Predicted the Hatred of Christians
