1 John 4: 1-6 (KJV)

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

I Want A Divorce!!!

divorce

The big “D”. That thing that happens to “other people” and “other families”. Divorce, an affront to God’s greatest creation. More and more lately I have been hearing from people who are considering divorce, and to be honest, I have even mentioned it myself a time or two when things got “rough”. Consider that last sentence for a moment. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will be familiar with the “rough times” that my husband and I have experienced as a couple, as a family and as parents. Let me tell you that the little trials which have prompted the “D” word lately are NOTHING when compared to what we have experienced together in the past. This is why I know that the over-abundance of divorce talk on all fronts is designed by satan for such a time as this.

Temptation (A Personal Testimony)

succumbing-to-temptation

It’s one of those things that is placed before us everyday. From something as blatant as having that hidden cigarette because no one is looking, to something as subtle as keeping the wrong change that the cashier gave you because, hey, “it’s not my problem that she can’t count”. Temptation is one of those things that we all face each and every day. The confusing part is…is temptation a sin? In and of itself, no it is not. However, what we do with and how we react to the temptation is what can lead us into sin. I have spent the last week analyzing my personal reactions to situations and I can honestly say that at least once a day I began a sentence with, “Ohhh I was tempted to…”, and you know what follows won’t be very Christ-like. You see, sin begins in the mind and your thoughts turn into actions. An example, one day I was extremely frustrated with my boss and I was talking with a co-worker; I said, “You know I was tempted to just punch her in the face”, and even though in my heart I know that I would never do that, my thoughts could cause me to act on the temptation one day, so I had to repent. Temptation is serious. Read the rest of this entry »

“Your Inspiration Station”

def

Yep, you guessed it; I have been listening to the radio again. See what had happened was (smile)….on my 30 minute drive into and from work everyday I like to keep ahead of the traffic/weather conditions so many times I turn on the radio, and since the city that I live in doesn’t have many options I keep it tacked onto “The Inspiration Station”. Silly me, this whole time I thought that this station had something….anything….to do with the Lord I serve. Well, I was fooling myself obviously because not only was there no God to be found in my 30 minutes of listening, I also was not the least bit inspired. Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself so allow me to slow down. Inspire. I saw another definition for this word that truly intrigued me; it stated: the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions. That is an incredible definition! To have the power to shift someone’s intellect (or intelligence) or their emotions would indeed be quite the power, and this is what today’s music has over us, whether you realize it or not.

This is the BOLDNESS The Lord seeks after!

While delivering his graduation speech over the weekend, a high school valedictorian sent shock waves through the crowd when he ditched his original speech and recited the Lord’s Prayer instead.

According to NBC affiliate KCRA.com, Roy Costner IV, who attended Liberty High School in Liberty, S.C., stunned those gathered at his school’s graduation ceremony on Saturday when he ripped up his pre-approved speech at the podium before addressing the crowd.

“Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today. I’m so thankful that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age,” Costner said moments before launching into the Lord’s Prayer.

Christian News reports that Costner had apparently decided to recite the prayer in protest of his school district’s decision to omit prayer at graduation ceremonies.

As Costner prayed, many of those gathered broke out into applause. Soon the auditorium was filled with cheers of encouragement.

“You couldn’t even hear him doing the prayer anymore because everybody was clapping and cheering,” Brian Hoover, who attended the graduation, told KCRA.com.

Costner told Fox Carolina this week that it had been “an emotional moment,” looking out and seeing the crowd’s reaction.

A spokesperson for the Pickens County School District said that Costner would not be reprimanded for his prayer. “The bottom line is, we’re not going to punish students for expressing their religious faith,” John Eby said, according to Christian News.

The World is Out of Order

I have spent many months trying to be a quiet observer of the chaos that is transpiring around us everyday; from the senseless bombings, to the extreme weather calamities to the mysteries strains of insects permeating different areas, I have taken it all in. I am not so naive anymore that when things happen I run crying to God asking “why”, because I remember that He stated that all of these things must come to pass before the Son of Man returns. In the meantime, our adversary has turned up the heat…and boy is it getting hot….

Addicted

addicted images

Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (gambling) that can be pleasurable but the continued use of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work or relationships, even health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others. – Psychology Today

How is it that I commonly hear “Christians” state that they are addicted to something? I realize that in many cases we should not take statements literally, but more and more lately I encounter a professing Christian say something like, “I am addicted to Starbucks”, or even “I am addicted to him/her”. Do we not realize that an addiction is an illness, a compulsive state of being that is hazardous to your physical, mental or emotional health? I have a close relative who makes no qualms about declaring how she is addicted to nicotine, and that she knows that it’s shortening her life, but that she just cannot quit it. I have pointed out all of the obvious scriptures about cleansing ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit..(2 Cor. 7:1), and God delivering us from our afflictions (Ps, 34:19) but they just don’t seem to register with her. She derives so much pleasure from inhaling the very thing that is stealing years from her life. To her credit, she has promised herself that she will quit soon, even though that promise was made almost  a year ago.

Drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling…easy addictions to address but what about the less common ones: Read the rest of this entry »

When a Child Dies

Hi Blessed Readers!

I know that it has been a while since I’ve posted but there have been many stumblingblocks to my writing lately, not the least of which is the new job that I’ve acquired. I am now past the trial phase of that job and that means that I have a few spare minutes to share what God has put on my heart.

First let me explain a little bit of what I do. My work is in the healthcare field, and in my day-to-day job I interact with children with not just special needs, but needs that have to be carefully monitored by on-site nurses. I work with children with cerebal palsy, spina bifida, Down’s Syndrome and many other complicated medical issues. Being there everyday with them will cause so much joy, sometimes sadness with setbacks, but most of all it caused me to reevaluate my own life, principles and needs. I know that personally I took for granted that the things I needed or wanted would always be there, because I serve an “on-time God”; even when things seemed to be at their lowest point I knew that God would come through for me.

But what happens when a child dies? Difficult question I’m sure. I cannot answer that because as of this writing I have four healthy children. Read the rest of this entry »

The Fool…

While watching the Nightly News last week I saw a story in regards to atheist billboards; this was on national news which was interesting. It prompted me to see how widespread this billboard thing really was, and the result is in the following video. Perhaps we can be as proactive as they are in spreading the TRUTH about our savior? Think about it!

(I apologize for the clarity of the video. God’s enemy gave me a fit in preparing it!)

The “New Normal” or A Satanic Disorder?

 

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. – Genesis 2:22-24

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

- 1 Corinthians 11:3

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. – Ephesians 5:22-23

God is perfect and everything that He created He called “good”. The union of Adam and Eve was one of those good things, and perfect in the eyes of God, but ever since that fateful meeting between Eve and the serpent there has been a disrupted order in what God created. Even to this day…

I was watching the Olympics on NBC television one night and I saw an advertisement for a new show coming up this fall entitled, “The New Normal”, and the title grabbed my attention but I saw little of the actual ad so the next time that commercials came on I paid attention. The premise of this show is that apparently a young pregnant woman who is single (I believe) wants to give up her newborn to a family who is looking to adopt. The main contender and potential “parents” are a homosexual male “couple”. SHOCKER? Or not.

Well, interestingly enough I had CBS on a few days later and ran across an advertisement for another show, this one called “Partners”, with a premise that is close to “TNN” but without the adoption link. It is supposedly about two best friends, one gay and one straight and their significant “others”.

Keep in mind that these shows are a part of “Network Programming“, not cable offerings. I had to ask myself in light of what this country is facing right now, is “The New Normal” just a comedy show or is it another subliminal push against God’s order? The answer seems pretty clear, as we, the body of Christ, face massive amounts of intolerance from the LGBT community. God clearly and plainly stated in His word what normal constitutes, but the world wants to change His normal into a “new” normal.

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done : and there is no new thing under the sun (Eccles. 1:9).

Consider the institutions in our society; yes the institution of marriage is my primary focus of this blog, but we have other major institutions in this country which are affected by this satanic disorder: government, schools, mass media and the church.

The Government

Our “esteemed” President is highly regarded in this country so when he openly backed same-sex marriage he was highly lauded by many. He played right into the satanic agenda for votes, but anyone who understands the new world order and the satanic disorder attached to it knows that anyone with that position would have stated the same. We can go as far back as the Clinton Administration to make the same point; when Hillary wrote her book, “It takes a village to raise a child”, she too was highly praised. Why? Because that book supported the stance that a traditional family wasn’t necessary to raise a child, as long as there was a “village” of neighbors, friends, colleagues, etc. to help. That goes against God’s word.

Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up (Deut. 11:18-19).


I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:

That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:

That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God (Psalms 78:1-8).


God did not command a “village” to raise His children, that was the job of the family headed by the father. So now we have the government changing the rules, and attempting to skew God’s order once more. By endorsing the same-sex marriage push, this nation’s leader has backed the sodomite agenda just as in the days of Noah. Additionally, he has allowed state leaders to redefine what is acceptable according to the Constitution; his former Chief of Staff dictated that he would not allow Chik Fil A to build in his city of Chicago because of the CEOs personal views against SSM; POTUS, being a former Constitutional Law professor at Harvard, remained quiet throughout as Emanuel and other mayors took this stance. One more thing about our esteemed leader; his “evolution” about SSM this spring was no evolution at all; In 1996, as he ran for Illinois state Senate, Chicago’s Outlines gay newspaper asked candidates to fill out a questionnaire. He wrote on the 1996 questionnaire, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” In 2008 during the Presidential race he stated that he believed marriage was between one man and one woman. This summer he is in full support of SSM, as he has evolved. Or was it devolved? 

The Schools

One thing is painfully clear, Christianity has all but been removed from our schools; it seems like our children have to hide even in order to pray over their food in lunch, but if that was the worst of it we would be fine. The satanic disorder is quietly creeping into our children’s educational system.

Gay history is now a requirement in California public schools because of a new state law that says the contributions of gays and lesbians must be included in social studies instruction. Now teachers are figuring out how to incorporate the new material into their classes (NPR, 7/22/11). Read the whole story: HERE

This agenda is targeted toward our children, of course, but it sets a very dangerous precedent as it seeks to anesthetize our kid’s minds to make homosexuality more acceptable, ergo normal, to them. By comparing homosexual history to Black American, Mexican-American, or Native American history this law diminishes what these cultural groups have actually experienced to achieve and accomplish what they have. Sexual orientation is not comparable to racial identity, and the goal of this agenda is to create empathy in children toward those who identify themselves as gay. Additionally our schools are being overrun by LGBT groups under the guise of equality; one of them, GLSEN, is the Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Educational Network. Their goal:

 

“GLSEN strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. It is a growing, well-funded homosexual organization that promotes homosexual identity and behavior on campus. It has been very successful in gaining access on campus by working with such influential groups as the National Education Association”.

 This doesn’t sound too bad, right? Well you have to go a little deeper to find the root of their true agenda:

  • GLSEN believes the early sexualization of children can be beneficial. This means that virtually any sexual activity as well as exposure to graphic sexual images and material, is not just permissible but good for children, as part of the process of discovering their sexuality.
  • “Coming out” (calling oneself or believing oneself to be homosexual) and even beginning homosexual sex practices at a young age, is a normal and positive experience for youth which should be encouraged by teachers and parents, according to GLSEN.
  • Bisexuality, “fluid” sexuality and sexual experimentation is encouraged by GLSEN as a right for all students.
  • Meeting other “gay” and “questioning” youth, sometimes without parental knowledge, is a frequent theme in GLSEN materials. At these meetings, minors will come into contact with college-age people and adults practicing homosexuality.
  • In GLSEN material, the “cool” adults—parents, teachers and counselors—are those who encourage students to embrace homosexuality and cross-dressing. They also allow adult-level freedoms and let children associate with questionable teens or adults.
  • GLSEN resources contain many hostile, one-sided anti-Christian vignettes and opinions, as well as false information about Christianity and the Bible’s position on homosexuality. This encourages antagonism against biblical morality and increases the risk that youth will experiment with high-risk behavior.
  • The spirituality presented positively in GLSEN resources is heavily laced with occult themes and nightmarish images.

And it’s all starting in California. Take note that the Gay-Straight Alliance began in the early 1990s, and now has clubs in more than 3,000 U.S. High Schools. Parents, please be aware of the changes in your children’s school and curriculum. This type of change is detrimental to the body of Christ and the structure of the family as defined by God. 

Mass Media

Mass Media is defined as communication whether written, broadcast, or spoken—that reaches a large audience. This includes television, radio, advertising, movies, the Internet, newspapers, magazines, and so forth, even some weblogs. The purpose of this type of communication is to send out a message that will be delivered, received, and transferred. We have all probably heard that satan is the “god of the air”, and by association, the airwaves; so many messages that he wants to get across, he will use mass media to communicate them. The first example I would like to present is – HOMOPHOBES. How many times have you heard that word bandied about in the media when someone protests against the gay movement, or even speaks in less than glowing terms about homosexuality? Usually the word is directed toward practicing Christians who believe in the bible and God’s word. We are homophobes according to gay rights activists. Or are we? 

HOMOPHOBE

noun
a person who fears or hates homosexuals  and homosexuality.
 
Well I can only speak for myself, but I neither fear nor hate those who practice homosexuality; as a matter of fact I love them and pray that they come to the TRUE knowledge of Christ and His forgiveness of their unrepentant sin. However, that view doesn’t suit mass media so they use a litany of adjectives like a drumbeat to pound upside the heads of those who are on the fence about homosexuality. Those who oppose it are “homophobes” or “intolerant” and “filled with hate”, or “bigots”. With the media over-stressing this mantra they have striken fear in the hearts of those who actually oppose homosexuality and/or same-sex marriage. People are in fear of speaking out against it because then they will have one of those dreaded labels attached to them! I want to give a few short examples of how mass media is pushing this satanic disorder, feel free to Google anything that is not explicitly spelled out: Written – “My Princess Boy”, is a mother’s story about her son’s love and penchant for dressing up in frilly pink dresses and pink high-heeled shoes and how others should accept their children for who and what they want to be. This poor child is FIVE years old, and the media, and his MOTHER had him with his bright smile and pink tutu on every major broadcast channel as they preached “love and acceptance”. He never stood a chance. 
 
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Prov. 22:6)

Music is easy, the agenda promoted is everywhere from Lady Gaga’s “Born this way” (no you weren’t), to Justin Bieber and his tight girl jeans and nail polish. Back in the late 80s into the 90s female rappers were encouraged to be “hard”, and now we have Queen Latifah, a not-so-closeted lesbian and others who are similar. Sexual promiscuity is promoted by “icons” like Madonna (who kissed two women on a national stage), and Beyonce who sings about “If I were a boy”. Rock legends like Steven Tyler dress like flambouyant women, wearing feather boas and earrings and full makeup. Then there is Cher who is supporting her daughter Chastity, well…now son, Chaz who underwent a highly publicized sexual reassignment surgery and is now transgendered. All of these people have received extreme amounts of mass media attention in order to push and further this agenda. 

Then there are television and movies. As my opening pointed out, “The New Normal” and “Partners” are the newest entries on the scene, but television has been becoming more degenerate for years and promoting an antichrist agenda steadily since the mid 80s, when Billy Crystal portrayed “Jodi Dallas” on the sitcom “Soap”; I am sure that there were earlier instances, but the Crystal one is the earliest in my memory. Remember the very controversial sitcom “Ellen”? This was before her hugely popular talk show; she was the catalyst for acceptance of the gay lifestyle into MSM. Once there wasn’t a widely negative reaction to her show, presumably because she is so “funny”, that ushered in a rush of other shows like, “Queer eye for the straight guy”, “Will & Grace”, “Queer as folk”, “The L Word”, “Glee” and this past fall’s “Smash”, all of which featured a central or prominent gay character or two or three. Many of these shows used comedy to push the agenda further, and others are pretty explicit for what they show in prime time. To be clear, I have not watched many of these shows, but I have read enough about them that I know they fit the theme of this writing. The characters in these shows are usually the cutesy, quirky types and almost always have a wonderful sense of humor. The point and purpose of this is to make their lifestyle more acceptable to the masses by saying, “hey they’re just like me and they’re OK”! 

Charisma Magazine online (2012) cited this:

The gay agenda in media hasn’t just affected older audiences, but has been painfully apparent in targeting children under the guise of teaching “tolerance and diversity.” In January 2005, for example, several major children’s television shows joined with the We Are Family Foundation to promote the homosexual agenda using kiddy favorites such as Arthur, Barney, Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer and Jimmy Neutron. After the characters sang “We Are Family” together, they directed kids to the website of the pro-homosexual We Are Family Foundation, which teaches them to accept and celebrate differences of race, class, genders and “sexual identity.”

A cartoon feature aired on the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and PBS on March 11, 2005, and was supposed to be shown to kids in 61,000 schools nationwide. Each child was to be given a workbook designed by the very liberal, very pro-homosexual Anti-Defamation League. To top it off, children were being urged to visit a website where they could sign the “Tolerance Pledge,” which promises to respect all people whose “abilities, beliefs, culture, race, sexual identity or other characteristics are different from my own.”

This is an example of how mass media uses subliminal messages to influence our youth; this commercial is newer and features famous athletes as the voice of “acceptance” and “reason” for young girls. Note the stances, and voiceovers. Called, “Voices” it is by Just Do It, or Nike:

I am going to close out this blog soon and continue the “church” angle on another writing later, but I wanted to explore “Network Programming”, otherwise known as ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox; these are your major television networks not linked to cable and the shows that they “choose” to air. I looked up the word Programming just for reference and while the first definition had to do with computers, the second definition was “Predetermined behavior”. So, the network decides what to put on the air(waves) because they have already determined how we will behave after viewing what they air. That’s pretty much what it means; if they air enough homosexuals doing things that non-homosexuals do, eventually they will desensitize the masses into believing that their sexual behavior is normal, and should be accepted! Combine the programming with the new school order, the college campus push for sexual freedom, music for the masses and lack of Godly parenting and what do we have? The New Normal? Or…

A Satanic Disorder? 

God told his people to “be fruitful and multiply (Gen. 1:28)”, and the satanic disorder wants the opposite of what God wants so he will try to destroy the family (divorce, separation, anger, strife) from the inside out, and he will work on the minds of the innocents, the children, the unchurched and the Christians whose minds are not stayed on God; how does he do this? Through perversion, fear, the media, insecurities and loneliness he will use all of the things described in this blog to infiltrate your conscience and influence your thinking. There are no two ways about it, two men cannot procreate nor can two women. This is why there seems to be a super-push for acceptance of homosexuality while reviling God’s word and the traditional family. 

FAQs

Q. Do you believe that homosexuality is a worse sin than lying or adultery or murder?

A. No, not at all. ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and all sin requires repentance. 

Q. You seem to be “attacking” the homosexual lifestyle, what have they ever done to you?

A. “Attack”. That is another buzzword that the media has perpetuated. Standing on the Word of God and calling sin what it is cannot be constituted as an attack. The issue is more with His word than with me; God told us to “cry loud and spare not, show the people their sin (Isa. 58:1)”. 

Q. Why are you judging others? 

A. I don’t believe that I have. If I have, hopefully I have judged righteously and if not, then I have a God to repent to as well. 

Please note: I will not engage in any arguments about what is written here in the comments section, but I always welcome opinions pro and con. I will end on these notes:

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Prov. 14:12).
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12). 
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:7).


When you have time please read this article by my sister and friend Latter Days Ministry:

No Chickens!

Keep praying people of God and remember – God WINS!
