What Is Love? The Truth

the cross

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 

God’s sacrificial love through Jesus Christ is seen on the cross. He took our sentence of death because of His love for us and He gave us the Truth [God’s purpose and plan] to set us free. 

John 8:32

You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” 

Many people didn’t like my post: “Can A Christian Commit Suicide And Go To Heaven?”

I know that it was a very hard topic to tackle, but it was Biblical and most importantly, the truth. 

When Christians say that a person who commits suicide can still go to heaven, they are making a person who is suicidal to actually end his life for a better one. The reality is that it is wrong, false and unbiblical to teach that.

Jesus came to give us hope and life, to value others and the life He has given us. Jesus gave us life to accomplish His will and to love others with the message of hope [The Gospel]. The thing is that when Jesus becomes our Lord and Savior, nothing can take that hope from us.

Romans 8:35-37 

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 
36 Even as it is written, “For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 
37 No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 

Can oppression [suicidal thoughts] take us away from the love of Christ? No. Verse 35 does not say that if we give in to that thought, we will be saved, but with the context, it is saying that we will not give in to that sin because Jesus’ love for us will not allow us to be defeated as verse 37 says that we are more than conquerors. 

Some topics of Scripture are hard to talk about, but as followers of Jesus, we are obligated to teach the whole instruction of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit so that the Truth of God’s Word can set people free. We must tell and warn people not to commit suicide but that there is a way out, through faith in Jesus Christ which will make them overcome any obstacle. 

1Corinthians 10:13 

No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 

Christians are going to suffer physical and emotional pains, but our hope is in Jesus Christ who will never abandon us while we go through our tribulations. That is my hope.

Verse By Verse Through Revelation (18:11-15)

fires_of_babylon

11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore:

Their distress for the city that was destroyed has nothing to do for the souls that perished but for their wallet.


12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble;

The woman/city is very wealthy who purchases merchandise from all kinds of vendors which in turn makes them prosperous. 


13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.

It is interesting to note that the verse reveals not only do they enslave people with false doctrine but also making some physical slaves to carry out their plans. 


14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.

The merchant’s financial tower (business) will collapse due to the downfall of the false religious system. 


15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing

 See verse 11

Their god is their money and those who serve that god will perish. 

 

 

Satan’s Hidden Signature In Evolution (Part 1)

Let us first start in creation. Satan wants to erase God as creator and put himself in His place through the Big Bang theory. 10-scientific-laws-2


Holy Scripture

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

jesus creating the world


Evolution 

The Big Bang Theory says that before the universe with stars and galaxies existed, there was a very hot and dense superforce. This superforce is called “interactions” which consist of gravity, electromagnetism, the weak force, and the strong force. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang

Personally, it sounds like they got their theory from George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars “the force is with you” which the movie taught that through meditation, one can tap into that force and achieve the impossible. 

According to the science community consisting of atheists, creation started from a “superforce” components which came from nowhere and from no one.

This “superforce” components is Satan’s signature and reveals that he wants to put himself in the seat of The Creator. 

Ephesians 6:10-12

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. 12 For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.

The community of Evolution and Atheism has made up a belief that came directly from Satan himself. Its true meaning is to make people abandon God completely and worship him. How are they worshipping the devil you may ask? Good question…the more I read about evolution, the more it sounds like New Age philosophy and the occult. 

To worship Satan, one is not required to acknowledge him or even join a Satanic Temple, The Occult, or even any type of spiritualism. What we must understand is that Satan doesn’t care if you believe in him or not because regardless of what you may think of him, he will use you for his demonic purposes. Anyone devoid of the Holy Spirit is in Satan’s hands. 

2 Timothy 2:24-26

24 The Lord’s slave must not quarrel, but must be gentle to everyone, able to teach, and patient, 25 instructing his opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance leading them to the knowledge of the truth. 26 Then they may come to their senses and escape the Devil’s trap, having been captured by him to do his will.

When a person is not worshipping the true living God, Satan uses them for the sole purpose to attack the Bible to make people doubt it so that they cannot get saved. 

2 Corinthians 4:4 (Emphasis added)

4 In their case, the god (Satan) of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

In the early 18th and 19th century there was a man by the name of Franz Mesmer who brought about the teaching of an existing force called “Animal Magnetism” which Franz taught that the force runs through the human body and gave him the power for healing his patients through it. The occult was influenced by Franz’s teachings. 

Why did Franz call it Animal Magnetism? Because the demonic forces are always mentioned in Scripture as having animal characteristics for their viciousness and deadly attacks. Below are a few examples

  • Genesis 3:1
    Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”
  • Genesis 4:6-7
    6 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you furious? And why do you look despondent? 7 If you do what is right, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”
  • Luke 10:18-20
    18 He said to them, “I watched Satan fall from heaven like a lightning flash. 19 Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will ever harm you. 20 However, don’t rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
  • 1 Peter 5:8
    8 Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.
  • Revelation 12:9
    9 So the great dragon was thrown out—the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him.

This is the end of Part 1, in Part 2, I will get into how Satan wants to change and put his signature in the verse that says, “26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness (a).
