    Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast "Pur", that is the lot, to consume them and to destroy them; but when this became known to the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked plan, which he had plan...

Telling 'IT' like IT IS

  • Heaven and 'Hell' are two extremely misunderstood 'Places'. Few have dug deep enough to comprehend what Scripture Genuinely has to say about either place. It continues to baffle my mind that Teachers and Preachers tell 'half-truths' at best when referring to either place.

    And this happens because we just keep passing on what has been passed on to us, without ever making the effort to understand the truth.

    Even the Person of Jesus is misunderstood. Some view Him as 'Unconditional Love' ... BUT ... that is NOT what the Gospels, Letters, or Old Testament Passages reveal when they refer specifically to Him.

    IF ANYONE spoke 'conditionally' ... it was He. When the 'cardinal' doctrines are so terribly defined by irresponsible 'teachers', and when the general populace of 'believers' never question what they understand ... The error can be passed on for many generations.

    Soon after ... a great injustice takes the place of Absolute Truth. We can look at the 'World' and so easily see the mixed standards. We can even adopt them into our lives. But just because 'they' do it does not get us 'off the hook' when we demonstrate the same attitudes and lifestyles. We are as 'wrong' as 'they' when we follow what is not found to be pleasing to God.

    I have made the decision not to have a 'service' when I pass. A Dinner yes ... but a Service NO. I have been to too many 'funerals' where people tell lies, not only about the deceased ... but ... also about the Truth.

    One of the reasons why I do NOT like doing a funeral is because I feel that I cannot say what really needs to be said. I have no joy in hurting people in any manner, either physically, mentally, or 'spiritually'. But IF Jesus had my weakness ... He would NOT HAVE SAID the things that HE DID SAY!

    IF any of you read the Gospels 'HONESTLY' ... YOU Will NOT find Him to be a 'Man' who was found to be pleasing to the public, or ... in private. His disciples followed Him because they KNEW He Spoke the Truth, and they also KNEW that the Truth rarely felt 'good' or 'joyful'.

    I challenge YOU to read the Gospels and to discover Jesus, as those who genuinely KNEW Him ... penned Him ... in Scripture. His LOVE is NOT Unconditional. Yes ... It is Eternal, but no .. it is NOT Unconditional. And among all 'Men' He was the most difficult to follow because it meant One had to choose to Die to Oneself to be His Disciple.

    To Pride. 
    To Lust. 
    To Popularity.

    He did not worry about keeping 'friends'. In fact John 6:66 tells us that because of what He said ... MOST of His 'followers' left Him. Why? Because what He said disgusted them ... It literally 'turned their stomachs'.

    If you are looking for a Nice Guy or for a Sloppy Lover of your Soul, you will NOT find that person in Jesus. He is demanding. He is a warrior. And ... He never refrains from saying what MUST be said.

    Some of you haven't read the Scriptures for a very long time BECAUSE they truly have 'little value' to you. You feel adequate because you have head-knowledge or think you do. A 'Friend' does not pat you on the back when you are heading for danger. He WARNS you of the Trouble that is Coming.

    When HE RETURNS there will be NO Great Escape! A time of Great Trouble will have to be Endured by the People of God. And it is because so many have placed their trust in a Pseudo-Christ that a Great Falling Away will precede His Return.

    And believe me ... That Time is Coming.  

    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
