The Monkey Show

1 Timothy 4:1-2 KJV “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; [2] Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.”

Study your Bible! Study your Bible! STUDY YOUR BIBLE!🥺 If you’re just going to church and not studying your Bible you may be part of the monkey show.🐒 What’s the monkey show? The monkey show is a church where men and women get up and perform for you. They are not true teachers of God’s word. They are false prophets. But how would you know this unless you study the Bible for yourself? How would you know if what you’re hearing matches the scriptures word for word? If you do not study the Bible on a regular basis you have no clue or reference for the truth. You can easily be bamboozled and you wouldn’t even know it!

“I LIKE THAT PREACHER”

Are you one of those people who never studies the Bible but listens to certain preachers on TV etcetera because you like they’re messages? Does what they say always make you feel good? Are you never challenged by what you hear to make some serious changes in your life? Might the below passage apply to you? I’m not saying it does but just think about it:

2 Timothy 4:3‭-‬4 CEV “The time is coming when people won’t listen to good teaching. Instead, they will look for teachers who will please them by telling them only what they are itching to hear. They will turn from the truth and eagerly listen to senseless stories.”

There are many great story tellers out there. With there clever speeches they seem to make a lot of sense. But to God they are senseless because their stories masquerade as the truth. At the end of the day you are listening to a so-called motivational speaker/false prophet/false prophetess who uses the Bible. Isn’t their bottom line always money? They don’t stick to the sweet simple gospel message, they mix it in with their new age get money prosperity gospel:

1 Timothy 6:3-10 KJV “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; [4] He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, [5] 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. [8] 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.”

In 1 Timothy 6:5 the Greek word for, “Gain,” means, “money getting.” God says teachers and professed believers who teach that GODLINESS AND GETTING MONEY ARE SYNONYMOUS😳 are corrupt minded, and destitute of the truth. These days that’s all you hear; “Name it and claim it, blab it and grab it, make this or that material blessing manifest, sow a seed and watch it multuply,” etcetera. THIS IS NOT THE GOSPEL MESSAGE AT ALL!!!😠😤 These false teachers are telling people only what they are itching to hear, how to get more money, not Jesus Christ. They are the worse kind of con men and women. Why? Because they use God’s word as part of their get money schemes.

Could the real reason why we just go to church and don’t study our Bibles be that we love being told only what we want to hear? We love to hear false prophesying? Even if that means giving our hard earned money to some greedy money grubbing preachers?🤔

The Bible (which is God’s word) clearly says in 1 Timothy 6:5 that teachers who view gain (money getting) as godliness are to be shunned. “WITHDRAW THYSELF,” from them is what we are told to do. Yet these money hungry mammon worshiping churches are always filled!🤔 We will have no excuse and no one to blame on judgment day for following these false teachers and allowing ourselves to be entertained by the monkey show because God told us to search the scriptures for ourselves to know the truth. We were told by God to study to show thyself approved. (2 Timothy 2:15) If we do not do this we simply chose not to listen to God. We instead in our greed chose to listen to some monkeys tell us how to use God’s word to get more money. This is not godliness! No! THIS IS WITCHCRAFT!!!😠😤

Get out of the monkey show! “WITHDRAW THYSELF,” from those who teach the false prosperity gospel and all false doctrine while there is yet time!

1 Peter 4:17 NIV “For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

The Costly Gift Of Pride

The Costly Gift Of Pride

Proverbs 16:18 KJV “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

The devil wants to give us a gift this holiday season and all year round actually. It’s the costly gift of pride. At the beginning of all sin lies unbelief. Once the tempter gets us to doubt anything God says he’s got us. Our minds are an open door; an open city without walls, we have no protection. When we don’t believe God’s word and trust in our own understanding the enemy walks right in like an invading army unchecked, and plants in us any wicked desires he wants. Strongholds are built too. It is no wonder when Jesus was tempted by the devil he answered each temptation with God’s word saying, “It is written…”

JESUS TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL

Matthew 4:1-11 NIV “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. [2] After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. [3] The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” [4] Jesus answered, “IT IS WRITTEN: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ” [5] Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. [6] “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ” [7] Jesus answered him, “IT IS ALSO WRITTEN: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ ” [8] Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. [9] “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” [10] Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For IT IS WRITTEN: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ” [11] Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.”

Jesus did not consider for a moment the devil’s three temptations. Jesus clung to the word of God! Hence the devil could do nothing to Him. The same is true with us. Satan will appeal to us intellectually and through our sensual desires just as he did to Jesus, just as he did to Adam and Eve. But as long as we firmly reject his antichrist ideas and CLING TO WHAT, “IS WRITTEN,” in God’s word like Jesus did he can do nothing to us. The devil won’t be able to give us the costly gift of pride.

Remember, satan will appeal to us intellectually and through our sensual desires. He will try to get us to trust in our own judgment not God’s word. He will tempt us to define and follow our own morality not God’s law. Reject this as the wickedness it is! Do not give an inch of ground to the evil ones tactics by paying attention to them. Such thinking brought sin and death to the whole world. Through one man’s pride (Adam) death spread to all mankind! Pride is costly indeed:

Romans 5:12 NIV “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.”

Satan bamboozled Eve then Adam joined in her rebellion. Hence they both received the costly gift of pride. But those who trust in the Lord and do not lean on their own understanding are eternally safe:

Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6 NET “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight.”

Those who trust in the Lord and not themselves receive the free gift of eternal life!😊 Not the costly gift of pride that leads to destruction.

Good News Bad News

Good News Bad News

Isaiah 61:1-2 KJV “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; [2] To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.”

I’ve got some good news for you and some bad news. As they say, “Let’s get the bad news out of the way first.” The bad news is all the hell you and I have caused others on earth will come back on us multiplied by a number we can not imagine unless we repent.🥺 We have a choice: we can choose to feel others pain now by being compassionate, kind, and empathetic. Or, we will feel their pain forever in hell multiplied by a number we can never imagine. Remember the rich man and Lazarus?🥵 (Luke 16:19-31) This is God’s just punishment.

I know, some are thinking, “I’m a good person so I have nothing to worry about.” Not so fast. Our definition of what it means to be good and God’s definition is two different things. We need to learn and seek God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS. Only the righteous will not suffer in hell. Many so-called, “good people,” will bust hell wide open. We have all broken God’s law and are deserving of His just punishment. Even the nice little old lady who bakes cookies for the kids at Sunday school. None of us are immune. None of us can claim righteousness by God’s standard. He is the judge:

Romans 3:10 KJV “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”

Romans 3:23‭ NET “For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

If we do not repent of our sins and seek God’s righteousness we will face God’s wrath on judgment day.🥵 That’s the bad news.

THE GOOD NEWS

Now the good news.😊 The good news is God has made a way so that all of sinful mankind can escape His judgment:

John 3:16 NIV “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 14:6 NIV “Jesus answered, “I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

1 Timothy 2:3-4 NIV “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, [4] who WANTS ALL PEOPLE TO BE SAVED and to come to a KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.”

It is God’s will that all should be saved and know the truth. Belief in Jesus is the only way to God. He is the truth! Accepting His teaching is the only way to be forgiven for our sins and be spared God’s wrath:

1 John 1:8-9 KJV “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. [9] If we confess our sins, he [Jesus] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

As God’s appointed judge of all mankind Jesus has the power to forgive sins. He can declare one person not guilty and another guilty. He has the power to throw one into hell and seat another on a throne in heaven to reign with Him and receive eternal life. Most don’t want to think of God as judge. They only picture Him as a loving father who let’s them do whatever they want and never calls their actions into account. This is wishful thinking and self-deception.

As the righteous judge God can not wink at sin. All sin is lawlessness or breaking God’s law. Just as a human judge penalizes lawbreakers God does the same. That’s what a judge does. But a judge can also pardon lawbreakers and sin.😊 Again, a way has been made, the price has been paid, for each individual’s sin. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross paid the price for our sin. He took our penalty for us. He rose to life on the third day. Thus He is able to give all who accept Him a free pardon. He takes our sin and gives us His righteousness:

2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

The question is, do we want God’s priceless, precious gift of forgiveness for sins and eternal life? Or are we ok with facing God’s wrath on judgment day and going to hell? Those who choose the latter will change their tune later.

Romans 6:23 NET “For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 3:23‭-‬24 NET “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

I implore EVERYONE to accept God’s priceless, precious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ! YOUR SINS HAVE BEEN PAID FOR!!! Accept God’s free gift and live, forever! And that’s the good news.😊

The Unconditional Love Doctrine

The Unconditional Love Doctrine

John 8:32 KJV “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Merriam Webster’s definition of *Condition* “A premise upon which the fulfillment of an agreement depends: stipulation.” “Something essential to the appearance or occurrence of something else: prerequisite.”

There are many preachers that teach God has unconditional love for us. But when we look at what the word *condition* means and what the word of God says is this the truth?

GOD SAID TO ISRAEL

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 NIV “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. [2] All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”

God told the nation of Israel that they would be blessed above all nations IF THEY “FULLY” OBEY THE LORD. Is that not a condition; a stipulation, a prerequisite to receiving God’s blessing?

GOD TOLD ADAM

Genesis 2:16-17 KJV “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: [17] But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Was not God’s command to Adam a condition; a stipulation, a prerequisite to keep Adam from dying? Yes, God’s love has conditions. It’s been that way from the very beginning! The unconditional love doctrine is an unconditional lie!

GOD TELLS US

Proverbs 8:17 RSV “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.”

This scripture alone annihilates the unconditional love doctrine. God speaking through His wisdom plainly says that He loves those who love Him. And He only let’s Himself be found by those who seek Him diligently. Are these not conditions to receiving God’s Fatherly love?

1 Samuel 2:27‭-‬32 NET “A man of God came to Eli and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Did I not plainly reveal myself to your ancestor’s house when they were in Egypt in the house of Pharaoh? I chose your ancestor from all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer sacrifice on my altar, to burn incense, and to bear the ephod before me. I gave to your ancestor’s house all the fire offerings made by the Israelites. Why are you scorning my sacrifice and my offering that I commanded for my dwelling place? You have honored your sons more than you have me by having made yourselves fat from the best parts of all the offerings of my people Israel.’ Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, says, ‘I really did say that your house and your ancestor’s house would serve me forever.’ But now the Lord says, ‘May it never be! For I WILL HONOR THOSE WHO HONOR ME, but THOSE WHO DESPISE ME WILL BE CURSED! In fact, days are coming when I will remove your strength and the strength of your father’s house. There will not be an old man in your house! You will see trouble in my dwelling place! Israel will experience blessings, but there will not be an old man in your house for all time.” 😳

God made a promise of blessing to the priest Eli and his descendants forever. But when Eli and his sons kept dishonoring and despising God He withheld His promised blessing and instead gave Eli, his household, and all his descendants an everlasting curse! 😳 This also blows away the once saved always saved lie:

Jude 1:5 KJV “I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that THE LORD, HAVING SAVED THE PEOPLE out of the land of Egypt, AFTERWARD DESTROYED THEM that believed not.”

Is God making it clear that to continue to enjoy His love and blessings we must not dishonor and despise Him? That we must fully obey the voice of the Lord? That His great love indeed does have conditions?

WHO GOD LOVES LIKE A FATHER?

Psalm 91:14 RSV “Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name.”

Ahh, there’s the condition to receiving God’s protection, love, and blessing; CLEAVING TO HIM IN LOVE.😊 Do we need to go any further about this? Is this not enough proof that God’s love is conditional? And that the unconditional love doctrine is an unconditional lie? Here’s one more passage for clarity:

John 14:21‭-‬23 NET “The person who has my commandments and obeys them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal myself to him.” “Lord,” Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “what has happened that you are going to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him.”‬‬

Here again Jesus says, ‘My Father and I love those who love me, and obey my word.’ You can’t get around it no matter how hard you try. God is telling us plainly that His Fatherly love is conditional, not unconditional. And He loves those who love Him and His son Jesus Christ; those who obey His commands. People who claim God’s love without obeying His word without loving Him; who teach you can sin as much as you want or do whatever you like and God will still love you unconditionally are delusional.

To receive God’s Fatherly love we must repent and be born again. We must become children of God through our faith in Jesus Christ. Such faith involves obeying His commands. Reject the false doctrine of unconditional love. Believing this false teaching will damn your soul to hell! 🔥🔥🔥
