EVANGELICAL CHOICE AWARD

AND IT GOES TO THEIR FALSE MESSIAH, TRUMP, WHO TIME AND AGAIN PLACES HIMSELF  (ALLOWING THE “CHRISTIAN” RIGHT TO OGGLE AND ADMIRE HIM) ON A PEDASTAL WHILE IGNORING BASIC HUMAN DIGNITY, COMMON COURTESY AND COMMON SENSE, HAS BEEN WARNING AMERICAN CITIZENS IT’S DANGEROUS TO. CRITISIZE HIM.

I AM VERY INTERESTED. TO SEE HOW THIS PLAYS OUT, AND HOW FAR WILL CONGRESS AND THE EVAGELICALS ALLOW HIM TO GO BEFORE HE REVEALS HIMSELF FOR WHO HE REALLY IS?

THEY STILL CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS

No matter what color Jesus Christ was, HE DIDNT PREACH HATRED, AND IT WAS HIS OWN PEOPLE WHO WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR AND HAD A HAND IN HIS TORTURE AND DEATH!  Yet, this person who purposefully burned another human being because of his skin color, and attempts to use JESUS CHRIST as justification!

“To my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ our savior and Lord, My name is John D. Carothers and I believe the Bible is about white people and for white people,” the handwritten letter said. “I am in Rutherford County jail for burning a black man. I set him on fire with lighter fluid poured on his head."

EVEN THE DEVIL'S BELIEVE


Belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the first step in God's plan of salvation. 
Belief is the first step toward salvation, not the end of it, as some people would have you believe.
The Lord said that He is BOTH the door (that we go through for salvation), AND the path (that we walk). He says that He is the only door, and a narrow path, or way. 
So, if the demons have knowledge of Christ (as the verses below will show) what separates your belief from those of the demons destined for hell??  

 First, some scripture to prayerfully consider:
James 2:19   You believe that God is One. You do well; even the demons believe and shudder.
 Mark 1:23-24
And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, 24 "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God."
Mar 1:34
   And He healed many who had illness of various diseases. And he cast out many demons, and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
 Mar 3:11   And when the unclean spirits saw Him, they fell down before Him, and cried out, saying, you are the Son of God!
 Mar 5:2, 6-7   And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.
6 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him.  7 And crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me."
Do you not see the foolishness in thinking all you need do is believe and confess Jesus is Lord??  The demons all knew who Jesus was. They personally knew Him!
After all:
“All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.”  - John 1:3
Jesus is the creator of all things, including the angels.  The demons have a previous intimate knowledge of Christ that we will not ever possess from this point, yet they lost their “first estate”;
Jude 1:6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Much of the book of Jude speaks of men and angels in both the old testament and the new who have walked with God at one point, and then began to walk after the desires of their own flesh.

Just having a knowledge of Christ is not enough for lasting salvation.

Act 16:16-18 As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling.  17 She followed Paul and us, crying out, "These men are servants of the Most-High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation."  
18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And it came out that very hour.

In the above verse, this demon was confirming Paul and company’s witnessing!!
Imagine that! We could witness and still never make it into the kingdom!!
This demon was speaking truth. It was not preaching lies. Yet, many of us are reduced to demon status in our spirits because we think as long as Christ is on our lips “we got it made”.

I DON'T VOTE

I no longer vote, but not as a doctrine, like the Jehovah Witnesses, etc. I had to learn that it was God ordered for me, as I used to preach and it was my heart felt belief that Christians shouldn't vote. 
I was wrong. 
I DO, however  BELIEVE that God is calling certain ministers/preachers/pastors and prophets not to vote, because TRUTH CANT BE PREACHED FROM A DENOMINATIONAL OR POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE. God in Christ is neither a denomination or a political affiliate! 
God showed me that people will be forced to take stands along their party's and/or denominational lines rather than "Thus Sayeth the Lord!"
 As we see in these days, to stand on what the Spirit of God says apart from what your party/denomination says will amount to your voice being removed and/or silenced. Why is that? If we are all Christian and I am a Baptist (for example) than why am I penalized if I say "Yes, Baptism is important, but it cant be necessary for salvation if someone, after accepting Christ, could die before ever being baptized?" Or for my Pentecostal and apostolic brethren, I believe in speaking in tongues, and is a gift of the Holy Spirit, but not  relevant for salvation. There are whole denominations as well as individuals who live Holy lives for Christ but either never spoke in tongues or simply don't believe in it. According to them, they aren't saved, although Christ's word says in Matthew 7:20 "By their fruits you shall know them"?  


It's the same, if not worse, in our politics. We would be inclined to defend the persons we helped elect regardless of their unrighteousness, or not criticize them as they should be.  

Nothing could be more clear today than the hypocrisy of the Republican Party. They claim to be the "Moral Majority", and yet in truth, their actions are the exact opposite! They espouse anger and hatred in their regurgitated rhetoric and will not tolerate any one who is different. 

Matthew 12:34-37  O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  37  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Their actions, words and hearts reflect their hearts and the lack of grace they have for people of different races, skin color, and yes, sexual orientation.They show no grace to others that they say God has showed to them. 
The Republicans thirst and hunger for power, money and national superiority has been allowed to surface (as it has always been there) and be reveled for all with eyes to see and ears to hear. I mean, honestly, how do supposed confessed Evangelical Christians make Capitalism one of their core platforms? This is one example of what the New Testament says about money: 
1 Timothy 6:5-10 
 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.  6  But godliness with contentment is great gain.  7  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
These are two things that Christ did not support, honor or tolerate: Nationalism and Money!
And yet, these are the Republican party's two largest rallying cries. We see the sentiments behind LBJ's quote alive, well and actively in our faces:
“I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it,” he said. “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”  President Lyndon B. Johnson

Back to voting. Would a political party go through such changes as trying to rezone districts in their favor to stop people of color from voting or at the very least, making it very, very difficult to vote, if votes absolutely didn't matter? 
What would happen politically if the U.S did allow Puerto Rico to become a state (which the vast majority overwhelmingly voted for)? Which party do you think the vast majority would support? 
 So I realized it was my calling that didn't allow me to vote with a pure conscious. 
When the anti Christ comes into power, he comes in through a political system. That's voting. In order to do what God has called me and maybe others to do requires us not to focus on words and appearances, but on the Spirit. It requires to not focus on what may "appear" to be good that they are doing. I may be inclined to give someone I voted for an unrealistic and salvation compromising "mulligan" or 2 or 3..... 

ISRAEL AND U.S., PARTNERS IN CRIME

Would this law not make AIPAC's intentional influencing of U.S. policies on behalf of the Nation of Israel, in and of itself, illegal? At the very least, according to the experience and wisdom of this nation's first president, would that not make Israel an enemy of this nation’s government?
Yet, they operate in the light of day with little to no deterrence. Indeed, any interference and or critique, (no matter how true, sound or reasonable) is labeled with a possible life altering scarlet letter "A", for "Anti-Semite". U.S and Israel are partners in legal and more importantly, spiritual in crimes.
They see and treat those who they deem as “less than" with contempt and laws are written and passed that reflect those heartfelt nationalistic racist evils and biases.
Washington said those who are free should stay awake. But, the only thing that truly makes us free is belief in the Son, Jesus Christ;
John 8:36
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed
- And it is only in abiding that we can maintain that freedom and spiritual woke-ness, while not mentioned in the bible as fruits, It is CLEARLY a fruit (or product) of the indwelling Spirit. It can only be obtained and bore due to salvation and as we walk and grow in Him.
John 15:4
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

THE DEVIL'S DECEPTION THROUGH DE-SENSITIZATION

“One foot in the church and one foot in the world” is how the old saints used to categorize a “half-steppin Christian”. The truth of the matter, is statistically, you will get pulled into the world before you get pulled back wholly into the church. A half-in, half-out appearance, is in actuality  a whole spirit death sentence. It is for this reason the scripture says a little leaven, leavens the whole lump.

1 Corinthians 5:6-7  Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens all the lump?  7  Then purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us.

We have allowed proponents of the false doctrines of prosperity, Eternal Security and Pre-Trib Rapture to woo us on the one side; Telling us that being righteous doesn’t mean we have to dress frumpy, have a  religious spirit, be super spiritual or be holier than thou. “You can never out sin the grace of God” and “we are living in exciting times! Christ’s return could be at any minute!” These ministers of demonic doctrine usually want your support in some way, either through the purchase of their merchandise or your financial support. Normally trendy dressed and slick speaking, offering a “new word” that always amount to a one foot in, one foot out type of appeal that usually has some form of “we have to look and act like the world to win the world”.

James 4:4-5  You adulterers! Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God.  5  Or do you think the Scripture means nothing when it says that the Spirit that God caused to live in us jealously yearns for us?


Then on the other side; my brothers and sisters have committed themselves emotionally and spiritually to shows like the Basketball Wives, Kardashians, Love and Hip Hop, Real Housewives of some town near you, etc. You all know the latest Carver hits that have dropped, the newest dance/social media craze and are trying to incorporate it somehow into godliness and youth service. The shows you love to watch can almost be classified as soft porn and the language can be worse than foul. Yet you watch these shows without a shred of guilt. Did you ever have any? So of course  the sisters are dressing for church as if they were dressing for the Club and the male leadership loves it so! Their “praise dancing” seems to be more about attracting attention and potential lovers, no longer only looking for husbands. We have allowed the normalization of whoredom and homosexuality. Even in our churches, it has become normal to have sexual partners before and outside of marriage, and it no longer need be of the opposite sex!
We have allowed the devil to dull our senses. We have allowed our senses to become numb, turned off and killed by what we consciously choose to watch, listen to, and give of our time.
Our sense of Christ-likeness and spiritual morality has become pliable, fogged and dulled because we have allowed our hearts to become far from God and separated from Him, His Spirit and the truth of His Word.

1 Corinthians 10:13  
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
The appeal and temptation the devil throws at us, are the same from both sides. It’s riches, worldliness, materialism and pride. And what we love we spend more time nurturing. What gets nurtured, whether sinfulness or godliness,  grows and matures.
What draws you to these prosperity hucksters is what draws you about the shows you love: Worldliness. Your heart belongs to the world.
1 Timothy 6:9-12  But those purposing to be rich fall into temptation, and a snare, and many foolish and hurtful lusts, which plunge men into ruin and destruction.  10  For the love of money is a root of all evils, by means of which some having lusted after it were seduced from the faith, and they themselves pierced through by many pains.  11  But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness.  12  Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and confessed the good confession before many witnesses.
Demonic spirits are in our churches because we have not evicted him from our hearts and ways, or we have allowed him to return to what was once swept clean.
Matt 12:43-45 44
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.  44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.   45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation

Our walk with Christ is not supposed to simply be a matter of having good morals, values and principles. All spiritualities, religions and ways of life have these! All of these things are by their very nature subjective, changes frequently according to times, culture, societies, etc, and can be different for a myriad of reasons.
Salvation is not about principles. It’s about coming to believing faith in Christ Jesus to obtain and maintain a relationship and walk with God. Principles, morals and values come OUT OF that, not the other way around.
