Breaking Generational Curses (3)

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 08:09:03 -0500

God hates idolatry/occultism with passion. In fact, this is the primary reason why He warned Israel against marrying from other nations or allowing heathen foreigners to live in their midst. He didn't want them to be polluted by those idolatry nations. God warned them that idolatry and occultism, witchcraft, fortune-telling, sorcery, mediums or psychics, calling forth the spirits, Satanism, making marks on their bodies, sacrifices and rituals would bring down the divine punishment (curses) upon them and their subsequent generations, up to the forth generations. And if the next generations still refuse to repent, the curses will continue to extend indefinitely. My God! Please, before we go on, let's see some of the curses that will come upon those that get involve in idolatry and occultism. We see some of these manifesting in some families today. Yes, God has told us that the curses will be generational. That is, from parents to their children, to their children's children. And they will continue until anyone breaks out of the chain.



Get Ready For Your Exodus

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:11:33 -0500

Declare into the ears of God's people that like a bird that has been caught in a net, so are many of God's people. Get ready to be free and get ready for your exodus.



Time To Recover Confidence In The Gospel

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:13:34 -0500

The gospel of Christ is always at the forefront of spiritual battle, and never far from hostile opposition. Why is it so much ridiculed and despised, and has this caused Christians to go slow on living by the gospel and sharing its good news? Over the last 20 or 30 years sustained opposition to the gospel of Christ and to Christians in general, has been growing. In the face of all this should Christians soften their message to gain acceptance, or is it high time to recover confidence in the gospel and to share it prayerfully, powerfully and relevantly?



Trouble With Your Faith?

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:36:40 -0500

The problem with walking by faith is that we try to fit faith into our lifetime experiences. We can talk about faith, but to walk in faith is an entirely different thing. Weak faith is a result of weak reading.



Oldest Temples of Tamil Nadu

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:59:10 -0500

Tamil Nadu, known as the Land of Temples, has about 33,000 ancient temples and many of them are more than 1000 years old! People from all over India take temple tour packages to visit pilgrimages in Tamil Nadu as the state is dotted with majestic temples. These will reflect the rich culture and heritage of the state.



William Lane Craig's Evidence For God's Existence: A Rebuttal

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:40:11 -0500

Is there actual evidence for the existence of God? Is there actual hard-cord logic that requires the existence of God? Theist William Lane Craig thinks so and is one of those True Believers. I personally think Craig's evidence and logic is extremely flawed. Let's have an examination, and for those of you who want Craig's side of the story, he has his own website and numerous YouTube video clips. Bring along your popcorn and a large grain of salt.



The Love of Money Is the Root of All Evil

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:59:34 -0500

The pursuit of money or all the things it can buy is the problem. It shows that we are putting our faith, our sense of security and our hope for the future in material goods. Instead, we need to put our hope in God.



Why Allah Does Not Save Muslims

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:57:51 -0500

One can't watch the images of young children in places like Aleppo and Yemen who are suffering horrendous inhumanity without wondering why their God allows it? A recent report by a doctor in Yemin showed children starving to death while their communities are bombed by a Muslim army in Saudi Arabia. Other reports from Syria show tragic scenes of despair and horror as children bleed and die while their parents pray to Allah.



How Will People Be Happy in Heaven If People They Love Are Not There?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:09:47 -0500

Will people be really be happy in heaven if some of the people they love are not there? What does the Bible teach us about heaven, that can give us a hint towards answering this question?



How Many?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 07:41:34 -0500

If you were to ask the average Christian (whatever that means) how many people they have led to Jesus Christ, the number would be alarmingly small. The majority of Christians know they have a spiritual obligation to share the Gospel, but how to do it is an entirely different question.



What Is Reality According To The Bible?

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 10:19:06 -0500

There is much ado about what constitutes reality. Many philosophers want to leave the Creator out of the picture and like to use the conundrums of sciences like quantum physics for that. Christians need not to be bothered by that.



Lord Ganesha to the Rescue

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 08:04:41 -0500

Ganesha the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is the bestower of good luck and prosperity. Know as the destroyer or removal of obstacles mankind has been blessed with riches and fortune since time immemorial.



Breaking Generational Curses (2)

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:25:38 -0500

One of the things that attract divine curses that will always run generational is idolatry. Idolatry is simply giving God's place or worship to other things. It means leaving the creator to worship the created.. This worship could be to Satan, spirits, demons, angels, humans, animals, etc. Or to their inanimate representation in rocks, stones woods, images, objects, etc. Any form of diversion of God's place and worship to any created being or object is idolatry.Those that there parents practiced occultism, idolatry will always have a heavy generational price to pay. And the deeper the practice, the harder the curse. Curses that follow idolatry and occultism are often terrible. And this is what many families are going through.True.



Why Am I So Self-Critical?

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:21:58 -0500

Quite apart from how much this question applies to me, my aim here is to extend it in a wide-reaching sweep that may even include you. I say that because as a Christian I know a little of my own heart and how this self-critical tendency is not always healthy and can be quite damaging to our mental composure. I need to develop this.



The Man Who Dismissed the Presence of God - The" Price" of Altruism

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 09:23:52 -0500

The article tells about the rise and fall of the man George R Price.It also tells about how his theory changed the rules set up by God.



Two Atypical Full-Time Mormon Missionaries: A Paradox

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:31:16 -0500

It is refreshing to hear salespeople tell the truth about what they are really selling, but what genuine snake oil salesman will freely admit that what he's selling, as a cure to a terrible disease, is really snake oil and nothing more? What real used-car salesman will admit to his gullible customer that the vehicle that he, or she, is representing as a mechanically sound automobile is really a dilapidated lemon. In like fashion, what typical Mormon full-time missionary will admit to a struggling Christian, who is a prospective Mormon, the truth about Mormon theology; that it is polytheistic in nature and content? These missionaries are conditioned in Provo, Utah, at the LDS Mission Training Center on the BYU Campus, to only provide their investigators with the scripted doctrines and theology contained in the standard six discussions. So, it is rare when two Mormon full-time missionaries tell the truth about real Mormon theology Christians. Recently, a Christian had this atypical experience. What occurred during this encounter was, and is, a poignant paradox.



Getting to Mormon Heaven: Ambiguous Salvation By Works Negating the Grace of Christ

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:28:08 -0500

The LDS (Mormon) Church does not publicize the very disturbing fact that a very large number of its active membership, men, women, and children, in the USA are an extremely depressed and dysfunctional segment of their religious society. These people are usually prescribed psychotropic drugs by LDS psychiatrists and psychologists who are employed by LDS Social Services, a Mormon Church-run organization designed to keep depressed Mormons actively involved in their church activities. The main reason that these men, women, and children are sorely depressed is because they believe that they can never be good enough to please their deity; and that if they can't succeed in doing something through human work, they are in some way inferior to other Mormons who can succeed in doing it. Unfortunately, they don't understand the true salvation that Jesus offers through his grace, through the shedding of his precious blood on the cross. Read on to understand the Mormon doctrine of salvation in comparison to the real Gospel of Jesus Christ.



Our Gifts From God

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:26:42 -0500

Each and every one of us is a gift from God. In addition, God has given each of us different gifts. He wants us to use these gifts to do his work in our world. With these gifts we can do mighty things. God has gifted all of his people differently so that together they might work in unity for the sole purpose of the Gospel.



The Consequences of Sin

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:26:10 -0500

The consequences of sin are hard. The price is heavy. It's time to plead for God's mercy. It's time to confess our sins and ask God to restore and rebuild us. We must not give up on God, because he does not give up on us. God can break the cycle of sin. God wants us to come to him because we love him, and not because we think God will bring us good things.



Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Six

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 08:05:50 -0500

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as my sixth essay over and on "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.



Jesus' Death Is For Today

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 10:00:08 -0500

This title makes a large claim, and as Jesus' death by crucifixion took place nearly two thousand years ago, how on earth could it still be relevant today? In this brief article I will not deal with the historic nature of Jesus' death. There is an abundance of material that confirms the many evidences for his death. So here, I am rather thinking about how Jesus' death has a powerful relevance to people today.



If Allah Is Great Why Does She Not Save Her People?

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 15:36:01 -0500

In a typical religious ploy of deceitful manoeuvres Muslims believe that only in death will they receive favors from Allah. They are as confused and misled by the after-life as the rest of the world. Religion deals in magic and slight of hand.



Allah and Mary Are the Same Queen of Heaven and the Sun

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 15:35:53 -0500

After my reincarnation and with knowledge that heaven and hell are non-existent my search for the facts about religious origins came with me from my former life. It was during the transition to this life that a vision showed me what was ahead and that the age of 45 years would be special. That is when the Spirit came and commissioned me to 'tear down the wall of churches and bring in the harvest.



The Focused Prayer Life

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:23:58 -0500

I wonder how many Believers find it difficult to stay focused when they pray. I know it is difficult to admit that we might have "prayer anemia," but to go through a form of praying with a lack of excitement and expectation if falling short of what is expected of every Believer.



Atheist Minister - Say What?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:08:21 -0500

Gretta Vosper, a popular 57 year old Canadian minister who calls herself an atheist minister preached for nearly two decades about love, kindness, and human connection. Recently she was deemed "unsuitable to continue serving" by the United Church of Canada's Toronto Conference Review Committee.



God's Grace Is for Everyone

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:49:26 -0500

No one deserves or earns salvation. It is all about God and His grace. Jesus did everything right so we could be made right. In spite of our sins, he continues to reach out to us. He continually promises to heal and help those who come to him.



Why the Soul Is Not Mentioned in the Old Testament

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:45:25 -0500

The soul is an entity invented by men in the belief that they could become suns in the sky when married to 'Mary', the name of the sun in Babylon. 'Soul' is from 'sol' for 'sun' and it literally means 'light-circle-god'. The description means it applies to the followers of the religion of that city, which is known as 'Zoro Aster' or 'morning star'.



Mary Is Described As Babylon the Great and the Mother of Harlots - Why?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:41:53 -0500

Anyone who reads through Revelation Chapter 17 knows immediately who it is addressing. There is only one Mary and it was taken to Rome from Babylon by the Amor who built Roma (reverse Amor). 'She' is the stylised version of the sun-star whom men created so they could 'marry' Mary.



The Sad and Ugly Deceit Surrounding Catholic Saints

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 10:15:21 -0500

What makes people so gullible as to believe in the stories and hype surrounding so-called saints? With the latest deception fresh in our minds as the 'canonisation' of yet another dead person shifted focus once more to the heavenly realm the sheep were out in force to follow. They are deceived and unrighteous fools who are dragged into the net of deceit that has served to make the Catholic Church the richest organisation on earth.



The First Beast of Revelation 13 - Who Is It?

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:28:49 -0500

Prophecies in Revelation are full of mysteries and wonders. They speak of beasts and angels and other things that clearly are not physical in nature and yet what is shown therein is reality. We are in the last days and the promise is that at this time all things will be known including the identity of the two beasts described therein.



The Catholic Church Is Worse Than ISIS

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:27:40 -0500

While ISIS is the current focus of terror and extreme violence it is because the things of the past are not in the media. Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only God, my pain from past experiences at the hands of religious zealots and the Catholic Church was not deadened. On the contrary my first day at school resulted in a hard kick to the nun's shin and a terrifying flight home as it all returned.



The Religious Preach of a Forgiving and Merciful God While They Ignore the Truth

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:27:35 -0500

God is not merciful or forgiving of those who are worshipers of false gods and spreaders of religious lies. To be qualified as a preacher one must attend a university and get a PhD so that the lies come out with conviction and credibility. One taught by God, however, requires no such accreditation and following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit it taught me the truth long before I could even understand it.



The Ugly Deceit and Horror of Religion

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:26:44 -0500

People go to church believing that they are serving God when in reality they're victims of 666. My reincarnation and link to the Spirit of the Universe happened for a reason. Between lives a vision showed me that at age of 45 years my work would commence to overturn religious lies.



The Work of Ministry

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 14:28:00 -0500

Every believer is meant to be doing something in the house of God. God's plan for His church is that we should participate and not be idle in the work of ministry.



Pitching Mormon Theology Into the 21st Century: Robert Millet Before the Harvard Divinity School

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 11:56:38 -0500

The fashion in which Mormon theology and doctrine is publicly represented by the LDS Church before the Christian world is greatly different from the way Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, the Unification Church (Moonies), Scientology, Adventism, and Bahia represent themselves before the world public. Mormonism officially endeavors to hide its unchristian 19th Century doctrines by its policy of "lying for the Mormon lord," while the other aforementioned cults, and many others not mentioned, are proud their pagan doctrines and will truthfully inform their prospective members, and, in fact, anyone who asks about them, about them. In March of 2001, Robert L. Millet, an academic representative of Mormonism, inaugurated the 21st Century with the Mormon Church's public rendition of its theology before the notable Christian theologians and scholars of the Harvard Divinity School, most of whom knew very little about the true 19th Century doctrinal history of the LDS Church. Exactly what did Robert L. Millet say during this presentation? Read on for an elucidation of these issues...



Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Five

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 10:03:55 -0500

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following fifth instalment of "religious bits and pieces" illustrate.



The Bible Is a Soup of Mixed Ideas From Several Authors and Establishments

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 21:52:02 -0500

It appears to be a pastime of some authors to ridicule and deny the existence of God when they clearly have no idea about the overall picture. With memory of my reincarnation and a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe (the one real God) that picture is revealed. It begins with a powerful and overall precise plan that ends with man's stupidity and his false gods and ideas that interfere with it.



Religion Is the Greatest Fraud Ever Practised

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 10:48:30 -0500

When men blow themselves up in the name of Allah they have no idea that they are doing it for the sun. 'Allah' is from 'el-a' and it means 'god of power' and in Babylon it was the sun, Mary. The latter name means 'mother's powerful eye' and it was the object of religious formation and the start of Islam.



Why Constantine Invented the Lie of Jesus Christ

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 10:48:21 -0500

The confusion brought about by lies and cover up, led mainly by the Vatican, created a huge wall of blindness from behind which the man numbered as 666 rules the world. He did God's bidding, however, by putting forth an image that many consider represents the Divine. He is the second beast of Revelation and his name is Constantine who established the Roman Catholic Church in the year 325 of the modern era.



They Preach a Lie in My Name (Jeremiah 27:10)

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 08:09:57 -0500

My reincarnation and knowledge that heaven and hell are fake and that man has grown in power due to the false gods and idolatry of religious systems led me to uncover the lie. My strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only real God, brought about a commission to "tear down the wall of churches and bring back the young." Months and years of teaching followed and the full picture of God's plan came to be known.



The Trinity God of Christianity Is a Big Con

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 09:39:58 -0500

Oh what a tangled web has been woven by the lies of the Catholic Church and its book, the New Testament. The latter was compiled by Jerome late 4th Century after the religion was established by Constantine in the year 325. The Emperor was an Islamist and a descendent of the Amors who had occupied Babylon, created the Persian Empire, and who built Roma (reverse Amor).



The Significance of the Five Point Star in Islam and Christianity

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 11:24:12 -0500

The 5-point star is everywhere and very hard to miss. It sits on the shoulders of generals in just about every military system. It's on war machines and police vehicles and above major buildings including the Kremlin whilst it's also on the flags of most nations, including that of Australia, the USA, and China.



Why Is Baptism Only Mentioned in the New Testament?

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 07:23:42 -0500

If one could believe all of the bible and come to terms with the many contradictions in it then one must also question the reason why baptism is only mentioned in the New Testament. In the first chapters of Genesis there is no such condition placed on humans as far as salvation or abiding by the law of God is concerned. In the Old Testament the only law associated with man is circumcision of the penis, which is a Jewish law.



An Explanation of the Trinity Found in Christianity

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 14:13:06 -0500

The trinity is the most difficult thing to explain in Christianity but it is the best method to come to know God and have a relationship with Him. Since God is a spiritual being, it is only through the spirit that we can obtain fellowship with our Creator. Jesus Christ is the bridge between God and humanity. It is only through Christ that we can receive the Holy Spirit.



Why Say That God Is Eternal, If He Didn't Create an Eternal Nature?

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:43:54 -0500

Some atheists would say, if God is eternal why didn't he create an eternal nature? However, God does plan to create an eternal nature but inhabited by those that willfully chose to believe in Him and obey Him. This was His plan from the beginning.



God - The Eternal Manager Of Our Universe

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 09:33:55 -0500

God is managing the Universe, its living beings for billions of years. and He is perfect. Humanity has invented new concepts such as; the Day of Judgement, permanency of the soul, and idol worship. We may be against idol worship, but our religious rituals have a tinge of idol worship. If our ancestors were persecuted by religious fundamentalists few centuries/ millenniums earlier, we settle our score with the present generation. We aggravate the problems. We have a divided humanity. Let's unify it.



The Power of the Holy Spirit in the World

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 08:29:30 -0500

No one can stand in the way of God and not be punished. Christianity has nothing to do with the magic and superstition of the world. The power of God's Word and the power of the Holy Spirit overcomes them all.



Yet Another Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces Encore

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 07:15:18 -0500

Of all of those Big Questions central to philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, the realms of theology and religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate in books, articles, videos, conversations in bars and pubs, and in fact anywhere and everywhere two or more humans are in proximity. There's the pro side; there's the anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following fourth instalment of "bits and pieces" illustrate.



Dusty Bibles Determine Your Future

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 07:32:37 -0500

From the very dust of the earth, our Creator God formed mankind to be in a relationship with him. It is this very dust settling on His Holy Word that show evidence of his creation living in separation from him.



Faith Versus Works, The Great Controversy

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 09:27:43 -0500

The great controversy between Catholics and Protestants has been for many centuries the theme of the works of faith. And certainly this is an issue that seems to have no solution. Unless we search the scriptures, which teach us the truth.



Seek and Set

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 08:24:18 -0500

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to stay focused on God? Think for a moment how many times the things of the world take center stage in our lives.



God's Heavenly Food

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 08:08:32 -0500

If we turn to God and follow His ways, He will take care of our needs. We are not to try to meet our needs by going to the refrigerator and eating any food that might temporarily satisfy our needs. God wants us to go to him to meet what really is a spiritual need. When we declare who God is and what he has done, we will be open to hearing His voice and doing His will, because we know that God only wants the best for us.



Regarding God

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 08:04:59 -0500

Concepts that surround the nature of deities, especially God, continue to be debated as they have been for thousands of years. There's the theist side; there's the atheist side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm in the atheist camp as this helping of some of my religious thoughts regarding God demonstrate.



The Lies and Conspiracy Behind Original Sin Claims

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 07:47:46 -0500

Those who fall for this lie and willingly have their children baptised into a religious system are victims of the conspiracy of 666. Putting guilt and fear in the path of new parents is the way the religious institutions acquire their congregations and then the brain-washing begins as the young child grows. So what is that they are trying to eradicate and why pick on young children as their subjects?



Oppression and Bullying Continues Today in the Most Unlikely Places, Does It Not?

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 09:44:03 -0500

There was a rat race then, and we have been taught that if you win the rat race you only become number one rat! Why is God interested in our work and life as well as our faith? Well, our world of worship influences greatly our world of work and duty and leisure. Almighty God is very well aware of this and that is why He raised up prophets in times when people needed a prophetic word - a word direct from the very throne of heaven. Amos is such a man and Amos is given a piercing word to proclaim. Where would we be without the cross of Jesus Christ? And yet, we read in the letter of James an echo of the book of Amos as people were still oppressing and bullying others. Might that be continuing today in more places than one?



Enemies Of The Cross

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 10:07:48 -0500

In these days of political correctness and respect for other people's beliefs and cultures, to talk of 'enemies' sounds troublesome. Is it something to avoid? Of course, it is also politically correct to be against those who are behind acts of terrorism, and who favour radical and violent extremism. But how do these questions relate to Christian belief when the apostle Paul said some people had become 'enemies of the cross of Christ'? Are they words for today, and what was he getting at?



10 Unknown Facts About Mother Teresa

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 08:19:55 -0500

Mother Teresa belonged to the World. However, she worked in the streets of Calcutta in India to help downtrodden people living there. Over the course of years, many people worked with her and appreciated her good work. Due to this, many formed their own opinions about her. This has put controversies on her legend. In this article, we will try to enlist 10 unknown facts about this great individual to partly dispel the controversies surrounding her legend.



Does The Bible Need Added Church Tradition?

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 10:55:18 -0500

This is a challenging and important issue. The central issue revolves around the sufficiency of Judeo-Christian Scripture and whether it alone, in its entirety, is the word of God, or whether in the long centuries that have followed the completion of Scripture, other writings and Church traditions ought to be given a high respect and authority in finding peace with God.



How to Live by the Words of Jesus

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 08:53:56 -0500

Build your life on the words of Jesus not on men, for when the time of testing comes only those whose life are rooted in Christ will stand. The way you reason today whether good or bad is as a result of words you have received over time. be ready to act on His words and you will be victorious in life.



The Germinated Seed

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 10:52:40 -0500

To be able to function as Jesus did, we need to be rooted and built up in Him. To have a root one must start with a seed. The seed is the Word of God. The more we study, the deeper the root goes.



God Is Our Refuge and Strength

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:41:04 -0500

When we take time to praise God, fear, doubt and frustration fade. Praising God doesn't mean that our problems aren't serious or that our problems won't go away, but praising God forces us to lift our eyes to God. He has the power to lift our hearts and offer us eternal hope. He is our refuge and our strength, especially in times of trouble.



Another Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces Encore

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:30:37 -0500

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following bits and pieces illustrate.



Bent Out of Shape

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 08:32:56 -0500

Jesus knew that rules are important, but he knew that the needs of people are more important. You and I need to learn that lesson as well. Whenever we see someone in need, the most important thing is to help them, no matter when or where it may be.



4 Mistakes a Christian Should Avoid in Life

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 13:36:13 -0500

It is always the wish of our father in heaven that we all move forward. Every man born of a woman always look forward to a time of enlargement, increase and a time to launch out into the deep things of life and ministry.



Mormon First-Sunday Testimonies - Extolling or Rejecting "Lesson 21-Man May Become Like God"

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:19:12 -0500

Mormons (Latter-day Saints) ritually rise from their pews on the first-Sunday of every month, go to their ward chapel podiums, and declare verbally their belief in Joseph Smith, Jr. as a prophet, in the Mormon gospel as Smith proclaimed it, and in the Mormon Church as the only true church on the face of the earth. These declarations are called testimonies. Yet, these rank-and-file Mormons have never, since around 1910, publically proclaimed and extolled in their testimonies their belief in the ultimate destiny of all worthy Mormon elders and their wives, called sisters, as stated as canonized scripture and commandments in "Lesson 21-Man May Become Like God," from the 1984 Melchizedek Priesthood Personal study Guide, "Search These Commandments." Why is this so? If "Lesson 21" is Mormon is canonized scripture and doctrine, as certified by Mormon Prophet, Seer, and Revelator Spence W. Kimball in 1984, why isn't the adoration of "Lesson 21" the first thing out of the mouths of these devout Mormons during their testimony meetings? Read on for clarification...



The Shrouded Truth

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 09:46:58 -0500

The Bible contains the greatest collection of written words ever assembled. There has never been, and there never will be, anything that can parallel its power and authority. The problem is the Scripture has been shrouded from the minds of so many readers. Is it just for Believers?



Extend a Helping Hand - You'll Be Surprised by the Impact of This Gesture

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 09:11:47 -0500

Extend your hand to another or maybe even to yourself; be cognizant when there is an opportunity to learn from another, or to teach by helping them do something when your are innately gifted, talented, or guided to assist, or perhaps become a mentor, which can only sharpen your skill-set. Thinking and learning come as automatic and easy as breathing, whether you and I are consciously aware of these opportunities depends completely upon our open-mindedness and our will and desire to face our individual need to assist or receive assistance, through the divinity of our wisdom. Nobody is or should be an island unto himself. We were all designed to be interconnected, loved and respected collectively, no matter what gender, color or any classification, we are all capable of giving and receiving a helping hand from another.



The Ugliness of Rio's Christ the Redeemer and God's Recompense

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:51:39 -0500

In the wake of the Olympics Games now under way in Rio will come the repercussions that many will inevitably face as they deal with disease, trauma, and regret. It is a city that sits under one of the most evil idols in the world, the statue of Christ the Redeemer. While most visitors to the city will have visited the site where it sits in domination they are targeted by the retribution and anger of the real God.



Religious Power Is Choking the World and Bringing About the Last Days

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:51:08 -0500

Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only real God, it commissioned me to "tear down the wall of churches and bring back the young." To do it many visions were given and a long period of teaching that explains the origin of all religions in sun-worship. They have their roots in Babylon where the name of the sun-star was Mary, derived from 'mother's powerful eye'.



How the Church Can Help Those Whose Suffering Seems Endless

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 09:31:23 -0500

Churches, faith based organizations, and individual believers generally do a wonderful job of helping the sick and hurting in their own communities and beyond. However, all too often, when the pain grief, and needs are ongoing, Christians move on with their busy lives and ministries while the suffering continues. Sometimes the ones hurting the most and the longest are right under our collective noses. What can we do to support them and assure them they're not forgotten?



In These Dangerous Days, Draw Near to Almighty God, and Walk More Closely With Jesus Christ

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 06:35:30 -0500

Were these people not interested in the Word of God? Were they just not listening to this prophetic voice? Were their hearts closing and becoming harder and callous? Were these people of Israel turning away further from the God who loved them, and who cared for them, and who had chosen them? I give thanks for the ways in which Almighty God has led me over these past many years. I have known the presence of the risen and living Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God, and that reassuring anointing of the Holy Spirit, and it is this I would wish to share with you as the situation globally deteriorates.



Theology and Cosmology Really Don't Mix Together

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 07:39:46 -0500

Theist and Christian Apologist William Lane Craig believes that the application of his philosophical and theological logic to his version of modern cosmology seemingly proves God's existence. IMHO, it does no such thing. God and cosmology just don't mix together. Because the Cosmos is circular, not linear, there is no need for any creator God.



How Can We Help the Poor and Marginalised, and Cruel Traffickers Who Create Such Miserable Havoc?

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 07:01:37 -0500

Do you suffer from criticism? Do you criticise others? Are you aware of a critical spirit around you or even within you? God wants us to sort things out in our own lives before we try to sort out the lives of others. Can you imagine how that would improve government almost immediately, if it were applied by our politicians? Israel too was selling people and trafficking in people, and God does not like that. God detests that, and this is happening in so many nations today and make no mistake about this - it will be judged. All the big words can be used here, as people were cold and callous and insensitive - insensitive to the needs of people and insensitive to the holiness and righteousness of God. It was as if they did not care about people and what they did to them and what they did with them.



What an Appalling Way for the People of God to Behave, and Treat Others, Including the Poor!

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 08:44:02 -0500

People must not be sold. God will deal with them. Almighty God detests slavery and the ruthless buying and selling of people, who end up having no freedom whatsoever. It is hard to accept that the trafficking of people is on-going around our world today on what must be for some a frightening and terrifying scale. Those involved in the trafficking of people should listen to what Almighty God has to say through His faithful servant, the prophet Amos. Reading Amos helps us to see our own situation, and our present setting, as God sees it. How do you react to that? When we see what is going in across Europe and in America how do you respond to the prophetic preaching of Amos as it might be relevantly applied to various circumstances today?



Making Something Good Out of Something Bad

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 07:48:36 -0500

We are wrong if we think that God works only in ways that we approve of. The Book of Judges argues that this belief is false. It, like the rest of the Bible, is a book about grace and undeserved mercy. God often uses people that we would not normally approve of to do his work in the world.



If the Creation Story Is an Obstacle To Your Faith, Here Are Six Things I Do Not Believe About It

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 07:42:37 -0500

If there is one part of the Bible that most people find difficult, or rather impossible, to believe, it is the Creation Story. This has become a major obstacle to faith for many people. In this article I will try to show why this does not have to be the case and why it may be worth your while to reconsider the issue. In particular, I set out six things I do not believe about it, which may help you reconsider the issue.



Family and Success

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 14:12:39 -0500

We all have an enemy that does everything in their power to get us out of GOD'S Will for our lives. Some of us at deceived and caught up with people, places and things that get more of our attention than our FATHER in Heaven.



Prayer for You

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 10:53:07 -0500

Greatness and success is a very precious achievement. Some people attained by fighting and struggling to get to the position they are. There was no way they could get there without a dogged determination and hard work, one example in the bible is David. Some other people get to that level by inheritance, these ones did not fight any battle. They simply occupied a great position because of the family they were born into, one good example in the bible is Solomon.



What Are We Doing?

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:13:04 -0500

Christians need to stop expelling the carbon monoxide of negativity. We need to breathe in the breath of God and release the positiveness of His Word.



Treasures in Heaven

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:06:54 -0500

Throughout Scripture the heart represents the centre of our being, our desires and our reason. Our hearts will be where our treasure is. Those who are greedy and anxious about stuff put their emphasis on worldly goods. Those who trust in God's provision invest their hearts in heaven. When Chris returns, we will have to give an account of how we looked after everything he has given us. Our hearts will affect how we look after things. Where are your hearts right now? Where do you want them to be in eternity?



Speciality of Temples in Tamil Nadu

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 11:08:55 -0500

Tamil Nadu is the land of temples. The oldest temples in Tamil Nadu date back to BC. You will find thousands of majestic temples dotting the skyline of Tamil Nadu. No other state in India will have so many temples to its credit. That shows that the people of Tamil Nadu have been the greatest of temple builders.



How to Know a Born Again Christian

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 07:12:45 -0500

As we know, Jesus Christ is the founder of the Christian religion. Therefore, the words, born again are popular among Christians all over the world. Last week Sunday, a friend invited me to his church, located around Maryland in Lagos, southwest Nigeria, where he preached the gospel of being born again.



Does Almighty God Still Say, "Pay Attention, Give Heed, and Listen Carefully"?

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:57:49 -0500

This prophetic insight deals with honesty and morality and integrity and cruelty and bullying and standards,and these are issues and problems which confront many peoples and nations today. We hear much in these present days about slavery and trafficking of people. What we are reading of here is in no way strange to our ears. God detests slavery and the ruthless buying and selling of people, who end up having no freedom whatsoever. But firstly, there is a word as if to awaken up everybody, as this prophet walks onto the world's stage, and into the serious situation.



How Do You React and Respond When a Powerful Prophetic Word Is Preached and Proclaimed?

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:56:52 -0500

How would you feel if you were raised up and told to walk onto the world's stage and speak out boldly and courageously? How would you feel if you were to be given such an awesome platform? God takes somebody so ordinary who is a nobody in one sense. We have seen that in so many instances, and God uses that individual to spread His Word, and to preach His Word, and to prophesy, just as Jesus took fishermen and tax collectors some 700 years later. Amos saw something and what he saw he spoke about. Amos was given insight into what God was doing among the nation and among the surrounding people.



Heart Attacks

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:49:00 -0500

The summer heat makes me think of heart attacks! There can be spiritual heart attacks as well as physical ones. Two disciples of Jesus experienced these.

Who Is Muhammad?

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 14:46:51 -0500

Who is Muhammad? (Peace be upon him) Who is Muhammad that is followed by more than one billion Muslims? Is he a venerable scientist? Is he a popular prince?



Feed Your Soul With Faith - Faith Is the Fabric of Our Being - Belief Outside of Oneself

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 10:09:35 -0500

Feed your soul with faith; the fabric of our being;everyone resonates or believes in something outside of themselves. Listen to your heart it's a really wise and smart way of learning,engaging wisdom and self-protection. While looking for comfort, solace or higher understanding relying on your faith is an outstanding way to gain self-control, direction or guidance. Life is full of trials and tribulations, though you can always go to your faith to find solace and answers. Answers can be sought and better planned when you choose faith instead of fear to gain comfort during the difficult times in life.



All Religions Are Recycled Islam From Babylon

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 07:17:14 -0500

The great fraud of the modern age is putting across the idea that religions are based on a Divine Creator when they are nothing but dreams put up by men in ancient times. The basis of their ambitions was to rise up to the sky to become partners with Mother God, Mary, who is a woman created from the sun-star. This phenomenon is the trap that most fall into and it was the power of the sun that fooled men into believing they could 'marry' Mary.



Radical Islamic Christianphobia And Hate Is Destroying Islam From Within Like An Aggressive Cancer

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:46:07 -0500

Not long ago, I was giving a speech about Anti-Terrorism tactics and after the speech someone asked me if I was 'just a little bit Islamiphobic' and I couldn't help but laugh, you see I am not Islamiphobic but at the same time I am not afraid to judge what I see and observe or use statistics, and probability to choose the smartest and most strategic path forward - to win. That should a few nerves in the room, then I went on to state that not only was I not Islamiphobic but it had occurred to me that most of the hardened radical Islamic terrorists and their groups are probably pretty paranoid when it comes to the Christian influence on the world - thus, Christianphobic. Fun to turn the tables, but seriously, let's have a philosophical debate here, shall we?



The Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 10:00:10 -0500

How can a God of love allow all this evil and suffering to exist? My wife's question is when my parents were physically abusing me I prayed for help and God did nothing, Why?



Are You Going To Heaven?

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 09:58:36 -0500

Is it possible to know if you are destined for heaven while you are still alive? Does it really make any difference in today's world whether or not we know if we are going to heaven? Why is it important to know?



A Few Atheistic Arguments Worth Considering

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 07:47:38 -0500

True Believers in God and in Christianity can give you lots of their personal reasons for their 'true' believer's belief system and religious worldview. Alas, these tend to be highly subjective beliefs based on absolutely no firm independently verifiable historical or archaeological evidence, but often rather on the say-so of others. Non-believers can counter with an equal and opposite number of arguments. As a non-believer I hereby present a few counter arguments to those of the True Believer.



Spiritual Revival

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 08:58:29 -0500

The one thing that both the church and society need today is revival. Not only will a revival bring us and society back to God, it will also allow us to remember what God has done for his people in the past, what he is doing for them now, and what he will do for them in the future.



Make The Church Great Again

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 08:56:34 -0500

Many of the Church doctrines today are striving to be religiously, rather than Scripturally, correct. It is time for the faithful to stand, as Paul did and expose the inconstancies of Believers whose talk is narrow, but their walk is broad.



God Is Not All-Loving But Is Certainly All-Caring, But Not for Many

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 08:24:24 -0500

When one is right with God there is no greater love and it is all encompassing. The majority, however, are caught in falsehoods that are blasphemy and against the Spirit, the one and only power. My reincarnation proves that heaven and hell are myths and the false gods of religions are drawn from the sun and the dreams of men.



Facing God's Judgment For This Time

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 15:57:38 -0500

There is only one judge and that has been the case for all of time. It is the Great Creator of the Universe and the Spirit that control all things. My reincarnation gave me insight into the myths and mysteries that feed religious power and how and why they were allowed.



A Punishing God Or A Gentle Giant?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 15:39:54 -0500

While many believe that God is a gentle giant with power to slay one's enemies the facts are that it is the Great Spirit of the Universe and it is punishing those who blaspheme or worship idols. That takes in a lot of territory but one has only to look at the most religious to understand how and why this is fact. The icons, images, and prayers directed towards man-made gods and religious favorites are falsehoods and a blockage to truth.



Peace - Have You Lost It? Finding Real Peace

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:27:37 -0500

Is peace just a state of mind; a feeling of stress-free contentment and light-heartedness? That might give us a clue. And then there is war and peace, where peace combines an absence of hostilities with an agreement on international harmony. But many people are troubled by all sorts of feelings they cannot get rid of. Such inner troubles often bring a great yearning for inner peace, but then what about peace with God? You know, in spite of all the controversies about religion, all the humanism, atheism and secularism, there are still many people who would dearly love to find peace with God. Maybe you are one of them?



Islamic Prayer Times - Five Daily Prayers

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:45:24 -0500

Fajr: This is the first prayer of the day at dawn. Islamic tradition distinguishes two different times for dawn: when the first light appears at the horizon, rather vertical (like the "tail of a wolf" as tradition says), and then, after this first light disappears, when the light of the early day spreads horizontally across the horizon.
