Sing praises to the Lord!


O come, let us sing unto the LORD: Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, And make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: The strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: And his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: Let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, As in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, Proved me, and saw my work. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, And said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways: Unto whom I sware in my wrath That they should not enter into my rest. Psalm 95:1‭-‬11 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.95.1-11.KJV

Greater Knowledge Demands Greater Accountability


It is one thing to be naughty and have no knowledge of the gravity or the consequence of sins. It is one thing for someone to occasionally fall or stumble, yet still have a desire to repent and stay on the right track with God. However, the real tragedy is when willful sinners delight in their naughtiness, and they have such high theological knowledge, or at least, the knowledge of what is morally right and wrong. Such people are only scared of the punishment that awaits them, rather than respecting the Lord who demands holiness. They will even use Scripture and the fanciest churchy-sounding prayers to soothe their conscience. Such people think they are Godly, yet through their behaviors, they serve their father, Satan, who exhibits zero holiness.

My fellow brothers and sisters, I challenge you to examine your behavior and your motives. On Judgement Day, each and every man and woman will be held accountable for every deed performed on this sacred land called Earth. With greater knowledge comes greater responsibility, because you are called to a higher standard. As your parents used to say, you know better. So, saints, DO better for Jesus!

The Story Of The Counterfeit Satan (Say What!?) [Comedy Short]


You know, every now and then when you are a practicing Christian, sometimes, you just gotta laugh at some of the things you hear from churches. Now, I am not trying to mock anyone, nor accuse you of being fake. However, this is rather a short comical story we can all relate to on some degree.

Story

So, there is this 70-year-old woman with three grandchildren who went to church every Sunday. It was 7 AM one Sunday morning, and it was the pastor’s 50th year preaching youth ministry.

While she is cooking some good old fashioned chocoloate pancakes that her mom used to make for her as a little kid, she flipped around her Bible to Psalms chapter 91. As she sang Amazing Glace in her most soft-spoken voice, her two-year-old was throwing a tantrum while fighting with her brother over who would get the last pancake.

“No, I want the last pancake, and that’s final!” She screeched while banging the bedroom wall. Then, all of a sudden, the fire alarm was blaring for five minutes straight. And the grandmother said, “Get your house-burning hand away from me, Satan!”

Then, the eleven-year-old granddaughter came up and said, “Gramma, you do realize you burnt your own breakfast? Why you waistin’ time rebuking the devil when he got better things to do than burning your creamy chocolate pancake?”

“Mm-hmm. He know dang well I can’t miss that celebration today,” Grandma replied.

Lesson: Give Satan (and God) Credit When It is Due

Sometimes, out of fear or a lack of solid and sound discernment, we often blame God and/or Satan for our own human failures. Through this short comedy, we learn the value of accepting responsibility for our own wrong choices, and accept the conseques that follow. In this example, the elderly churchgoer was attached to her Bible Study while neglecting family responsibilities (in this case, making breakfast and dealing with the sibling rivalry between her two grandchildren.)

Another mistake she made was to pioritize the pastoral celebration while neglecting the object of worship: Jesus Christ. Because of this, the grandmother had a counterfeit picture of Satan and Jesus simultaneously. Jesus, in her mind, was like Santa Claus (who gave her everything she wanted for her own gain), while her version of Satan was nothing more than a cartoonish Grinch who always ruins her own selfish plans instead of a spiritual enemy who sabotages God’s plans of salvation.

This comedy actually paints a picture of the condition of the American church. The church is not a place of spiritual growth; it is a place where little religious brats can cling to their pastor to bottlefeed them with a blessing for every donation they make. But, when things go wrong, either God or Satan gets the blame, when they chose to remain entitled and cling to a false version of spirituality.

As my dad says to me and my sister: Money does not grow on trees. It’s the same thing with a blessing. Blessings are supposed to be rewards for our diligence to God, and for being obedient to what He talls us to do, not for selfish pleasure and entertainment.

Grievous Times


1, But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come.
2, For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3, Without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce [strong-willed], no lovers of good, [enjoys being naughty]
4, Traitors, headstrong [rebellion], conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;
5, Holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof [self-righteousness]. Turn away from these, also.
6, For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,
7, Always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. [Deceivers] (2 Timothy 3:1-7)

A Moral and Spiritual ⠠⠙⠑⠉⠇⠔⠑

The above passage of Scripture serves to testify of the current state of this world. This is especially prevalent for my generation. As a young adult who is preparing for her final year of high school, and as a former Vice President of a Christian club in a diverse campus, morality has become a taboo issue that desperately needs attention.

Many teenagers are being taught the value of unlimited autumnity at the expense of setting a morally sound value system, and examining the conscience. This is a form of independence that leads to rebellion and arrogance.

Seniors who are getting ready to graduate often are a perfect target to this epidemic. As many reach college, many drop out of church, forsake youth groups, and, in some situations, depart from the faith altogether. I have heard of many young teenagers who used to be devoted to Jesus who later experimented with Ouija Boards and tarot cards, and dived headfirst into the Church of Satan and other “dark” practices. Worse, they believe it’s merely a classic “3 AM challenge”.

Some have even sought to outright rebel against their parents, and provoke their teachers. Today, detentions and white slips no longer faze anyone, and the threat of being grounded seems to have been outdated and perceived as an ancient practice from the 90s. The worst punishment you could expect for teenagers who exhibit such behavior is having their gaming system taken away, but even then, they can still sneak it under the covers. Or at the max, having to attend the dreaded parent meeting where the dean ends in a discussion of “counseling and comforting” rather than actual consequences that teach them to exemplify the traits of God.

Lastly, because everyone delights in their sin, and they make vain promises like “I will change, I will change”, we have become an easy target for Satan– Being thrown around by the wind of strange doctrines, and being fed with nothing but sugar-daddy sermons that make us feel good and “lighten up the mood”. If you want to spirituably “feed” today’s church, there are three words you cannot say: Hell, Sin, and Satan.

We Need To Do Better

If we seriously are committed to walking as children of the light, we need to accept the reality that God has set some firm expectations for each of us. If we know right from wrong, and we claim to be a worker for Jesus Christ, we have absolutely no excuse for our inability to live as an example for the world: That will not be swayed nor compromise to every wind or curveball that is thrown at us. Satan is not afraid of the fact that we are Christians. Satan is afraid of Christians who LIVE as they claim, and will not be afraid to share the painful realities of the Gospel. It takes courage to tell your thirteen-year-old that Satan is a very real entity who wants you to perish in the Lake of Fire, and will destroy you through every means necessary. It’s a very bitter cup to drink and digest. Hidden within the bitter truth is the sweet aroma of salvation and the key to the Promised Land: Jesus Christ, and His shed blood on the cross for the sins of humanity.

It’s time to teach our young men and women to reverence and fear God, and love Him and His precious creation.

God has blessed me, a 17-year-old blind young girl, with the sacred privilege of writing on this blog– Not to just be a spectator who preaches the sweet candy of “comfortable living”, but to show the world, through my living testimony, who Satan is. I am not here to “dig for Satan” as many will perceive. I am here on this page to bring others OUT of the chains of Satan– by exposing his plans, and bringing others to the saving grace of Jesus through the spirit of encouragement, compassion, and fiery boldness. Here’s a question to prayerfully reflect on today as I close this presentation.

Are we truly willing to take the leap of faith, and remain a threat to Satan?

Be prepared…


When God invites you into an adventure it’s a special moment, a divine moment . . . an eternal moment. You won’t get many. So, be prepared. Be ready with a quick, “Yeah, dad. Totally.”

If you have ever felt that God was calling you to do something…do it. Don’t argue with Him like so many children do with their parents and grandparents today. Sometimes what He calls us to do for His Kingdom doesn’t feel like a “safe” thing to do. Consider what Moses did or what David did. One had left Egypt because he had committed a murder of an Egyptian. One came to bring his brothers some food from home and found a giant of a man mocking the army of Israel and their God. Both of them felt the Spirit calling them to do something that was dangerous and outside of their comfort zones. In David’s case, the need was apparent and immediate. He did something about Goliath with God’s strength and help the stone that he sent toward Goliath’s head killed the giant.

Moses had lived away from Egypt and the plight of his people for many years before God called him to go and free the Jews from captivity. He didn’t want to do what God asked and he argued with God about his ability to do it but eventually, he did go and God freed the Jewish people from bondage that had lasted for four hundred years.

What does their example tell us today?

Both of them were chosen by God for their purposes and we are as well. Our purpose…your purpose may not be so grand as theirs but to God, it is still important. Each of us has a purpose and sometimes it takes a while for us to be ready for it even if God called us many years ago. Sometimes we run from God the way Jonah did. Sometimes…we just ignore the call and hope that God will choose someone else. But God knows our strengths and our abilities and our calling may be to live our life before someone else so that they will hear Him one day. Our example of living our Christian life every day could be our calling and it could be yours.

Each of us has someone in our circle that might only listen to or pay attention to our example. We might not know who it is but one day in eternity we will. Your calling may be for a large ministry but you don’t think you have the ability. God can take your ability and your resources and multiply them in ways that you can’t imagine. I never imagined that my website would draw as many readers as it has and I pray that it will continue to grow until Jesus comes to set up His Kingdom on Earth. Look around on my site and see if you could do this. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, please seek Him out soon because none of us is guaranteed another day.

Word of Wisdom For Today (May 27, 2022): Saint, or Agent of Satan?


The greatest deception that most zealous Christians who are on fire for Jesus fall victim to is to mistakenly assume that Godly people do not sin, and that those who commit just one sin (willful or not) are agents of Satan, without divine revelation. The other group of zealous Christians assume that even those who lie their way to avoid the penalty of their sin are actually genuine, whether they are clothing themselves with a clean garment to deceive you and themselves.

23, For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;
24, Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;

This has been a common stigma held among devout Christians who are sincerely zealous for people to come to Jesus. However, let us be careful not to deceive ourselves and think that because we are holy, we do not sin. If anyone says he does not sin, or claims to have “stopped sinning upon conversion”, he is lying ghSee John 1:8). Perfection can’t be achieved on this Earth. The only way we can be “perfect” is when we all get to Heaven with resurrected bodies that are flawless and without sin.

Now, compare a justified sinner to a willful sinner who IS indeed working for Satan to deceive God’s people. A guide to help us differentiate between these two groups is the acronym WHAM: Will, Heart, Attitude, Mindset. The following set of questions should give you a basic guideline based on Biblical evidence.

Sinner Saint or Satan’s Agent? WHAM

W: Will

1. Is he WILLING to change the behavior, or do he sincerely enjoy his sin? Does he realize that he has sinned?

2. Is he willing to accept the painful process of discipline and accountability for the harm he caused? This is also a question of maturity, since a key element in breaking sinful habits or even striving for holiness is to get over being “offensive” with sincere rebuke and critique.

3. Does he (passively or actively) show signs he wants to make amends for his sin?

HA: Heart + Attitude

1. Are there hidden emotions that could possibly be a motive for his behavior?

2. How does he respond when his sins are addressed and pointed out? Does he turn the blame on you, sprinkling in juicy Scripture with the intent to deceive or accuse the other party?

3. Do his expressions seem to indicate that he has no intention of repenting, yet offers gimmicks to get you on his side? “But, thank God that X happened, because I am SOOOO sanctified!” “If you do not tell X I did this, I will do X.”

4. Does he laugh at or mock sin (classified as a fool or “idiot”)?

5. Is he comfortable playing hymns while hiding his true intentions, masking it with churchy excuses “But, God forgives!” “The devil made me do it!” “You are lying!”

6. Are there other hidden attitude patterns you notcce? Is he truly remorseful for his sin, or does he lash out at you and bring up YOUR sins with the intent to shame the person who may be a gazillion times more Godly than him?

M: Mindset

After substantial time and sufficient reflection, is it reasonable to conclude that his sin and his lack of genuine repentance poses a serious spiritual hazard for those around you, including yourself? If so, you might want to call “Code Red!” It is likely that you must separate yourself from the sinner until he repents. However, even after he repents, caution is still recommended, that you may not be an accomplice to sin or be lured into temptation. In short: Do not go back inside an already burning building.

The key to remember when discerning true repentant sinners from a demonic agent is the attitude and the heart behind their deeds. It is also worth noting that Satan comes in various forms: Disguising himself as a minister of righteousness, or an angel of light. (See 2 Corinthians 11:13-15). Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the hidden clues that will possibly unmask such people, and, in some cases, show that it may be time to either reconcile or separate for a period of time.

Prayer: Discerning The True Light

Father in Heaven, I come before the throne to thank you for placing this mestsage in my heart as I write to you and your children today. May you convict us of the sins that enslave us, and come to you with a true repentant heart that is committed to maintain an example of holiness that is borne out of love for You. Lord, let us not deceive ourselves by wearing the mask of perfection. Lord, open our eyes and our ears so that we may carefully discern the sheep from the goat: Not baring a spirit of judgement and division, but a spirit of love and hunger for the truth. Finally, let us not be fooled by the many ways and forms Satan cloaks himself as Christ-sent agents: Not falling prey to their gimmicks or vain promises, while praying for their eventual repentance. In Jchsus name, amen!

A Word of Wisdom For Today (May 26, 2022)


Do not let the world hinder your upright example. Instead, let your example change the world.

Takeaway: Do Not Mingle With The World (Crowd)

Throughout Scripture, Jesus repeatedly tells us to be separate from this dark world, and walk as ambassadors of Heaven, setting an example centered on the message of the Gospel. Where we currently reside in is actually Satan’s kingdom, which is tainted with sin, compromise, and immorality. Today, let us commit ourselves to not allow the evil world to change us, rather, to allow our Godly example change the world.

To be separate from the world is to say no to our flesh, resist Satan, and stay on the path of the light.

Prayer: Examination Of Conscience


Before I begin this communal prayer, I would like to preface this presentation by saying a few things.

In the Roman Catholic Church and its liturgical traditions, an examination of conscience is a reflective activity where one sets aside quiet time to reflect on and call to mind the sins, imperfections, and moral failures he has made over a period of time, with consultation of the Holy Spirit. It is usually given by a priest prior to the Sacrament of Confession, which allows the person to “confess his sins” before a priest, who will offer him an act of “penance” (or reconciliation.)

It is worth noting that I am not a part of the Catholic Church, nor am I a supporter of the idea of confessing to man to absolve one’s sins. It is Jesus Christ alone who forgives us for our sins when we confess and repent.

In the wake of the two year anniversary of the tragic murder of 46-year-old George Floyd, the style and methodology of this particular composition is not meant to endorse any one denomination over another, rather to expose you to different styles and methods of spiritual expression, specifically the rite of prayer and lamentation through the eyes of other Christian sects, while communicating the core messages of the Gospel.

The nature of this writing style is to cohesively communicate the gravity of the generational sins which plagues America. This is not so much for Floyd and his family alone, but for the country, its allies, and the surrounding nations which have witnessed this evil, and partook in the systemic oppression and African-Americans and other creeds. To further protray the reality and universality of racism and systemic oppression as a generational sin, America is protrayed as a mother birthing children, representing the coming generations since slavery. The following prayer is translated in both English and Latin. Supplemental illustrations are linked at the end of this portion of the protest.

Prayer (Latin)

Misericors Dóminus ómnium géntium;
Oramus pro America, fascinata foemina.
Suum thesaurum libertatis et prosperitatis abdidit
Inferioris hominis carnes comedere.
Memoriae transitus Georgii Floyd;
Deploramus humanae vitae iacturam;
Aer dedit ei Deus inspirare;
Corde suo tenerum: Ecclesia misericordiae;
et lumen quod in pigmento cutis eius refulsit.
Mater America liberos suos prodidit
Sacrum votum solvendo
Esse terram liberorum
Et domum fortium.
Aperi oculos suos, ne se ipsa decipiat;
Excaecavit enim eam Satan in ira furoris sui
Pupillum deridens sibi dissimilem cognatum suum;
Venter eius plenus inimicitiae;
Liberos suos in saltu ferarum proterviam eripi
Propriis manibus systematis innectis
Quod justum non est justum, justum est;
Abnegans dimidium veri et fabulis iniquitatem suam.
Domine, ubi pestilens suspicio et stereotypa infructuosa sunt;
Dilectio alta, pura et prudens;
Odiosa odor evanens odii;
Dolorem perferendis, culpa,
Peperit filiam nomine Reconciliationem;
Quis erit responsabilitas ad tranquillitatem restituendam
Quia primogenito suo spopondit.
Scrutemur ergo conscientiam nostram;
et labore plantandi hortum
Iustitiae et fraternae caritatis fructus metit
Quod per nihilum finitum est, et perpetuum per aeternitatem.
Amen!

Prayer (English)

O Merciful Lord Of All The Nations,
We pray for America, a bewitched woman.
She has buried her treasure of freedom and prosperity
To eat the flesh of the Inferior Man.
As we remember the passing of George Floyd,
We lament at the loss of human life:
The air God gave Him to breathe,
His tender heart: A church of compassion,
And the light that shined in the pigment of his skin.
Mother America has betrayed her children
By breaking the sacred vow
To be the land of the free
And the home of the brave.
Open her eyes, lest she not deceive herself:
For Satan has blinded her with fits of rage–
Mocking the Orphan who is unlike her kin,
Her belly full of animosity,
Enslaving her children to the rowdy jungle of wild beasts —
With her own hands, crafting a system
That just is not true just-ice,
Denying her iniquity with half-truth and fables.
Lord, where there is unwholesome suspicion and unfruitful stereotypes,
Let love be profound, pure, and prudent:
Vanishing the distasteful aroma of hatred,
Enduring the pain of her sin,
Birthing a daughter named Reconciliation,
Who will take the responsibility to restore the tranquility
That she pledged to her firstborn child.
Let us therefore examine our conscience,
And do the hard work of planting the garden
That reaps fruits of justice and brotherly affection
That is limited by nothing, and continual through eternity.
Amen!

To add context to the art displayed, the picture of Minneapolis is colored in a deep red, representing the communal pain of the generational sin of racism.

Generally used in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Confession in the Catholic Church, the purple stole was a special garment that priests wore while members of the Church confessed their sins and performed penance during Lent and Easter. Hence the context of this protest, this is a symbol of national reconciliation and repentance.

How Compromised Preaching is Contributing to Our Cultural Rot


How Compromised Preaching is Contributing to Our Cultural Rot https://stream.org/how-compromised-preaching-is-contributing-to-our-cultural-rot

This is bringing our country to its knees. What has happened to the preachers and the seminaries that teach them? We are supposed to be preaching from God’s Word not changing it to fit the “congregation”! God’s Word shouldn’t be watered down to make people feel better!
