Despise Not the Words of God Almighty!

How Will You Discern The Truth From the Lies?

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” -John 8:31-32 (ESV)

Spreading across our cultures and societies is a thickening fog of deception, lies, untruths, and the twisting of truth. Evil is being proclaimed as good and good as evil, darkness as light and light as darkness – Isa 5:20. This deceptive fog is engulfing everyone from our leaders on down. Good moral values are being shredded into unidentifiable chards of refuse and Biblical standards clearly vaporized by political correctness. Friends, [Biblical] truth is being compromised, twisted, bent, and deformed to fit into the horrible contemporary framework of our ever-increasing Godless culture. Truth is vanishing and lies are proliferating. You see Satan as the father of lies has had thousands of years to perfect his art. Very seldom does he use a frontal attack but is highly accurate on flanking and rear incursions. For he knows men’s hearts; he knows their soft spots left unprotected and vulnerable. He fires blitzes of wicked, fiery, deceptive darts right at the weakest part of our Biblically unfortified souls, the parts left defenseless from the truth and easy prey for his wily devices and schemes. 

So what do we do? How do we guard our hearts and minds against this assault of Biblical truth?

First we must know what our Bible says about these things. That means we need to dig in and study it. America is abundantly rich in Bible resources, other nations maybe not so much. So there will be no excuses for American Christians to fail to read God’s Holy Writ. None, notta, zip!  Jesus said that we need to abide or continue in His word. And so by doing we will know His truth and these truths will set us free from the evil lies spreading like wildfire today. But wait … there’s another truth found here – in verse 43 He “slaps” the Jews hard when they argued with Him about sin and its enslavement, saying they could not bear to hear His word. Folks, that means they didn’t hear the truth because they knew not His word and therefore they didn’t know Him.

God is extremely clear, there is no mudding of the waters of truth when He speaks. He wants us to know Him without exception. There is to be no compromise, no putting Him on the back burner of our lives, no putting anyone individual/s or things ahead of Almighty God being daily on the throne of our lives. Jeremiah, a valiant prophet thousands of years ago by penning this truth from God Himself:

“Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24- But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord..” -Jer 9:23-24 (KJV)

We must abide in God. We must know Him. We must read His word as the utmost priority in our lives. We must know the rock solid truth of His word. For only then can we separate from the web of lies and deceit rapidly spreading over this world. The darkness is getting darker and men are loving it – John 3:19.  Now is the time to shred the cares of this world and take up the word of God like never before. I venture to say that if your beliefs in God are casual, if your faith is reckless and wishy-washy, believing what the world serves up more so than God’s word, you are being deceived and a target from the Devil’s fiery darts. You must get into His word and read it for understanding. 

“To whom shall I speak and give warning, That they may hear? Behold, their ears are closed And they cannot listen. Behold, the word of the Lord has become for them a rebuke; They take no delight in it..” -Jer 6:10 (NASB)

Take the authority and power we have as real born-again Christians, put on the full armor of God, with your feet shod (prepared) with the fullness of the Gospel and push back on the schemes of wickedness. On untruths. On lies. On wickedness. However, theres’ a catch… In order to do these things you must be grounded and founded in God. You must seek His face and know Him.

You must spend quality time in His word.

There are no alternatives, and no excuses for a professing Christian. Listen to what John says about those who don’t abide in Christ’s teaching:

“Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.” -2 John 1:9 (NASB)

Friends, the time is now to get things right with God. Don’t “play” Him like you perhaps play your neighbors or friends. Don’t think you know better or are wiser (in your own eyes). Don’t think that you are exempt because you attend church regularly, yet seldom read and mediate on His word. Don’t think you know Him yet make tons of excuses of not praying or reading your Bible. The times are growing more and more evil, truth is being extinguished and these things will not get better as prophesied in God’s word. Don’t be fooled by the clueless pastors saying things are OK or those that conveniently refrain from teaching about what is coming. Read your Bible and know God, seek His face daily, read His word daily, pray without ceasing. Seek after His wisdom, understanding and knowledge like you are seeking for gold – Prov 2:4.

Now is the time, don’t put it off. Know the truth and be set free. Abide in Him and continue in His word. In this you will have prepared your heart, mind and soul to discern the truth from the lies. Be prepared and be ye ready. Amen.

If We Are Experiencing Severe Shortages Now, How Bad Will Things Get When The Economy Starts Tanking Again?

If We Are Experiencing Severe Shortages Now, How Bad Will Things Get When The Economy Starts Tanking Again?

By Michael Snyder — May 6, 2021

Inflation and shortages are the two big stories for the U.S. economy this week.  In recent days I have done multiple articles about inflation, and so today I want to focus on the widespread shortages that we are currently witnessing.  At this moment, the U.S. economy is experiencing more shortages than it did at any point during 2020.  I know that statement sounds quite outlandish, but it is true.  During the early stages of the pandemic, there were temporary shortages of toilet paper, hand sanitizer and other items, but now there are severe shortages throughout many sectors of the economy, and quite a few of those shortages will not be so temporary.

On Thursday, Business Insider published a list of some of the most serious shortages that we are going through at the moment…

-Computer chips
-Used cars and rental cars
-Gas
-Plastics and palm oil
-Truckers and rideshare drivers
-Homes and vacation houses
-Lumber
-Household products like toilet paper and tampons
-Furniture
-Chicken
-Bacon and hot dogs
-Imported foods like cheese, coffee, and olive oil
-Chlorine
-Corn

That is quite a list!

The COVID pandemic suppressed output for many industries for an extended period of time, and meanwhile our “leaders” have been pumping trillions and trillions of fresh dollars into the system.

So now we have way too many dollars chasing way too few goods and services, and this is causing tremendous inflation and very painful shortages.

Just look at what is happening to the steel industry.  Changes in supply and demand have pushed up the price of steel to “nearly triple the 20-year average”

After bottoming out around $460 last year, US benchmark hot-rolled coil steel prices are now sitting at around $1,500 a ton, a record high that is nearly triple the 20-year average.

Steel stocks are on fire. US Steel (X), which crashed to a record low last March amid bankruptcy fears, has skyrocketed 200% in just 12 months. Nucor (NUE) has spiked 76% this year alone.

Much more importantly for the average American, there are now chicken shortages all over the country, and prices have soared into the stratosphere

After a year promoting takeout wings and crispy chicken sandwiches, restaurants including KFC, Wingstop Inc. and Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. say they are paying steep prices for scarce poultry. Some are running out of or limiting sales of tenders, filets and wings, cutting into some of their most reliable sales.

Independent eateries and bars have gone weeks without wings, owners say. Chicken breast prices have more than doubled since the beginning of the year, and wing prices have hit records, according to market-research firm Urner Barry.

“Weeks without wings?”

Oh the humanity!

If we don’t get this crisis under control soon, the U.S. may not be able to set yet another all-time record for obesity in 2021.

Propane tanks and chlorine tablets are also in short supply.  As a result, many Americans may not be able to enjoy their grills and their pools as they normally do this summer

A nationwide shortage of pool products is making chlorine tablets and propane tanks hard to come by and increasing prices right as the summer months approach.

“In this heat, if you don’t take care of your pool properly algae will start growing,” said David Sarafyan, a pool supply store employee. “Your pool will pretty much become a swamp.”

Hopefully at least some of these shortages will start to disappear in the weeks ahead.

But if we are seeing this many shortages during a “recovery”, what in the world is our economy going to look like when things start getting really bad again?

This should be a wake up call for all of us, because things are going to start getting really bad again a lot sooner than many people think.

But for now, Americans are swimming in cash thanks to the trillions and trillions of dollars that have been showered on them.

All of that money has to go somewhere, and unfortunately it is going into some of the most ridiculous things imaginable.

My regular readers already know how I feel about Dogecoin.  It is not a “currency” by any stretch of the imagination.  I have been tempted to call it a “collectible”, but normally a “collectible” is something that you can hold in your hands.

At least speculators were chasing something real during “Tulip mania” in 1636 and 1637.  Dogecoin is just a bunch of digital ones and zeros.

Dogecoin does not have any innate value whatsoever, but thanks to Elon Musk and a bunch of Reddit fanboys, the price of Dogecoin is up more than 100 percent this week alone.

For the year, it is up more than 14,000 percent

That means an investor who paid in $1,000 on January 1 would now have around $120,000.

This year alone it has soared over 14,000%, from $0.00468 on December 31, taking it past more widely used cryptocurrencies such as the Tether stablecoin and XRP to become the fourth-largest by market capitalization.

Yesterday I wrote about something that makes me want to vomit, but now I think that I have found something that may make me want to vomit even more.

If you can believe it, Dogecoin now has a market capitalization that is greater than Moderna, Ford Motor Company or Twitter

A market capitalization of $78 billion puts Dogecoin, founded in 2013, ahead of other more well established brands and companies including Sherwin-Williams which is valued at $75.8 billion; Dell Technologies, value $75 billion; Moderna, value $63.1 billion; Ford Motor Company, valued $45.2 billion; and Twitter, value $42.1 billion.

The mascot from Pets.com eventually came to symbolize the collapse of the dotcom bubble, and I think that the stupid dog on the Dogecoin logo should symbolize this current financial bubble when it finally implodes.

Tomorrow, more keyboard commandos will pour their stimulus checks into Dogecoin hoping to get rich quick.

Fear God and Flee from Evil!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Psa 122:6 (KJV)

Repent or Perish!

Repent or Perish – There Are No Other Options For Eternal LIfe

This will not be a flowery or candy-coated message today. It will not be filled with pretty words. It is not a self-esteem message. It will not be laced with any comedy. This will not be a message that makes you feel good about yourself. But it will paint the Biblical way to enter God’s Kingdom when our lives are through here on earth. It will be is God’s whole truth and right from Scripture. Please read to the end and then reassess where you are at with Almighty God. Pray and seek His wisdom. Read the Scriptures and verify what I am saying is the Gospel truth – Acts 17:11 – be a Berean. These words of Scripture are the bottom-line of salvation and eternal life.

Let me start out with the Christian bottom-line. “Repent or perish”. Now, these is not my words, these are from Jesus Himself. From the Gospel of Luke …

“And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3- I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” -Luke 13:2,3 (KJV)

He wasn’t talking about a certain class of people or culture or even geographical region but of people that were Pilate perhaps wrongfully executed. Jesus didn’t comment on anything else other than if they repented before leaving this earth. If so, they were to be in Glory, if not, perish to the waiting room of hell!

Bring this down-home to our day … repentance is a doctrine that is almost extinct in most Christian churches today. It’s something pastors rarely preach, and people don’t even like to discuss much less practice. It’s essential and a requirement established by Jesus and found throughout the Old and New Testaments. This is a requirement to enter His Kingdom, and there are no exceptions!

The fact that Jesus’ first sermon was on repentance – Matt 4:17 – should underline its importance to every born-again believer in Christ as their Lord

In fact, John the Baptist came preaching repentance – Matt 3:2; Mark 1:15

Many think that salvation is linked to a one-time casual prayer in which you invite Christ into your heart and poof you’re a Christian. Many Bible experts and prophecy teachers preach and teach this but it is not found in Scripture!  Please read Romans 10:9-13 – this is what God says you must do to become born-again and saved.

The doctrine of Biblical repentance then – the act of turning away from one’s sin (a u-turn in attitude and behavior) and back to God – is a foundational Biblical doctrine that CANNOT be swept under the carpet, marginalized or minimized. No excuses will be accepted.

And…

There are very few preachers who are willing to preach this convicting doctrine for fear of losing their “pew-paying patrons”.  (I went to a local “Christian” church for 12 years hearing little about sin, hell, repentance, or Godly sorrow. There were extremely rare altar calls and invitations for salvation – very pathetic.) In omitting this key doctrine they are, in fact, preaching as the Pharisees did and preventing others from entering the Kingdom of God – Matt 23:13. These types of pastors, preachers and/or teachers are nothing but pure cowards and will face a stricter judgment – James 3:1.

“But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.” -Matt 23:13 (KJV)

It is essential that every preacher/teacher who is truly and firmly committed to teaching Scripture MUST preach repentance. We should follow what Paul says in Acts 20:27 and declare (preach/teach) the full counsel of God.

Without a doubt then, repentance is a key theme throughout the Old and New Testaments and a key part of the Gospels. It CANNOT be ignored!

What is it then? Repentance is a turning away from your sin – making a U-turn, if you will, from the words, attitudes, thoughts or actions that cause you to sin. A change of mind that promotes action on our part. i.e. If you lust with your eyes, then quit lusting, confess it and make a commitment to turn your eyes from doing it again and be serious about this change. It is a Biblical practice spoken of often in both testaments. Luke 13:3, 5, says unless you repent you will perish. This underlines its importance in our own Christian lives. God is serious about this, He doesn’t joke around nor play games – Nahum 1:1-15, John 9:31.

“There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2- And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3- I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4- Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5- I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” -Luke 13:1-5 (KJV)

Scriptures emphasize and underline the importance of repentance because it is necessary for changing our attitudes and our life. We must be willing to change otherwise God is not willing to forgive our sins according to scripture.  Some other scriptural examples of the Lord forgiving us if and when we repent are found in Ezekiel 33:10-20, Isaiah 55:6-7, Jeremiah 6:16-30 & 26:3, Acts 3:19.

You see, confessing your sin is only part of the requirement for receiving God’s forgiveness. 2 Peter 3:9, says that God doesn’t want anyone to perish but all to come to repentance. And Acts 3:19 states Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” Acts 8:22 further says, Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you

So we can see then that seeking God’s forgiveness for our sin requires that we confess and repent – actively deciding to turn away from committing it again. In this way, Jesus sees the attitude of our hearts to actually mean what we say in confessing our sins.

Repentance example: Even King David confessed his sin with Bathsheba and repented of it as written in Psalm 51.

Repentance – the Old and New Testaments echo this as the main theme, after salvation. Read what Proverbs says about those that hate the knowledge of God and don’t fear the Lord. This can be equated to a disregard of His word as written in the Bible, no confession of sin, no repentance of your sin, no fear of God, living an unholy life, etc.

“Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29- For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:” – Prov 1:28-29 (KJV)

So I interpret this to mean that in our Christian walk before He will even hear our prayers we are required to confess our sin and repent of it as often as needed (for me personally, this is daily). We are also to read and seek knowledge of His law and commands written in the Scriptures. And we are to walk in the fear of the Lord – Acts 9:31; Deut 10:12. Hard and tough words, I know, but ultimately the truth. Understand that repentance is not a one-time thing, it is part of our daily walk with our Lord, our Savior, and our God. Psalm 66:18, Prov 28:9, Isa 1:10-15
