Don’t get TRICKED by the Super Bowl. PRAY AND PROTEST

The Super Bowl – the largest sex and money and alcohol worship event in the history of the world – ever.

God Bless America?

How about God will bless America if we watch and pray and protest idolatry:

“Wells teamed up with John-Keith Wasson to make the disturbing documentary film “Tricked,” inspired by the Super Bowl and sex trafficking, which chronicles “the pimps, the johns, the police, the parents and the victims of the America’s thriving sex trade.” Douglas features prominently throughout. The filmmakers set out to show the glaring irony that “Americans are trafficked by Americans to service Americans at the quintessential American event.”

Here’s a snapshot of the startling facts they collected in researching for the film:

– The average entry age of girls into the sex trafficking industry in America is 12 to 14.

– The average life expectancy of a young girl after being trafficked is seven years.

– One third of teens living on the street will be lured toward prostitution within 48 hours of leaving home.

– Sex work is the most dangerous job in America, by 51 times.

– The average victim may be forced to have sex up to 20-48 times a day.”

What would God do if American churches and Christians decided to turn OFF the Super Bowl halftime show, and take turns praying to God asking him to end the idolatry of sex and money worship in America? Or will they be too busy joining in it to pray and protest it?

Using False Worship to Spread Iniquity

Why is it so hard to understand that false worship is at the root of all individual, cultural and societal problems?

Lucifer himself became Satan and corrupted 1/3rd of the angels into demons by doing what? – Using False Worship to Spread Iniquity

Ezekiel 28

13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Spirit of Elijah is a Real Sacrifice

Church folk love to hear what the world is doing wrong, but we hate to hear what we’re doing wrong, and how what we do wrong is even more destructive, bringing shame to Gods name.

The Spirit of Elijah is not a sacrifice you make if you want to get money and fame in the church or in the world.

Confronting idolatry is something you do to prepare the way of the Lord, and sacrifice for the next generation of children. It’s a REAL sacrifice, for heaven, not earth.

Elijah himself was hated by a whole nation. John the Baptist was killed for operating in it. But he prepared the way for Jesus to come the first time.

In this second coming of Christ, the Spirit of Elijah will come first again. Do you want Jesus? Do you care for the next generation?

Being Married to Christ in the Day of Talented Spiritual Prostitutes: How the Lamb’s Wife Behaves Herself

Being Married to Christ in the day of Talented Spiritual Prostitutes :
aka How the Lambs Wife Behaves Herself

The sorcerer can do powerful miracles, a Buddhist can be kind and very loving, and a Muslim can say very wise things.

Powerful miracles, loving kindness, and wise sayings can be used to glorify God. But those things without the context of a faithful covenant with Jesus Christ are actually spiritually worthless, and probably harmful.

What separates the kingdom of God and Christianity from being “A” way into being “THE” way is this:

An exclusive covenant relationship with the living speaking God through the blood sacrifice and grace of Jesus Christ.

A true Christian doesn’t put his faith in the pigpen of other religions competing for slop.

A true Christian is not the one trying to be down and fit in like life is a permanent high school popularity contest. A true Christian is in the “in crowd” of Heaven, and growing the crowd with true leadership.

A true Christian is not like the kid trying to get a date. A true Christian is the one married to Christ already.
There are two spiritual states: in covenant with Christ or deceived in sin. Christ is not in competition with other gods for relevance. All other idols are nothing, but they represent devils (1 Cor 8:4, 1 Cor 10:19-26). A true Christian understands this and lives accordingly, teaching truth and showing love from a position of authority and with spiritual power.

A true Christian doesn’t compromise and make unGodly covenants with unbelievers to get fake conversions and publicity or exposure.

A true Christian that knows who their God really is represents God with holiness, repentance, power, and exclusive love.

POWER

Daniel 11:32 the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

– Those that know their God will be strong and do exploits. Knowing God gives you a position of strength.

;

REPENTANCE

Acts 17: 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.

– Those following and imitating God are also commanding men everywhere to repent, and turning people’s hearts to Him.

EXCLUSIVE COVENANT

Hosea 2: 16 And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord, that thou shalt call me Ishi (Husband); and shalt call me no more Baali (Lord).

– Those in covenant with God know that their relationship is an exclusive spiritual partnership

– Also see 2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

MUSIC and Culture

When you make the switch from:

A believer who speaks the language of hip hop
To:
A hip hop guy that pays homage to idolatry but happens to be a Christian

You have made the subtle switch from biblical Christianity to apostate confusion. Substitute hip hop for any culture or subculture, and this is still true.

Your fruit is ruined even if you still “quote scriptures, do miracles, and say nice things.” Why? Because you’re not representing God for who He really is. You’re not representing POWER, REPENTANCE, or EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

Why would you switch from hip-hop being an option within Christ to making Christ an option within hip-hop (or any culture, for that matter)? When you know God, you know what your spiritual last name is. The last name is the name of authority; it’s the name that’s passed on. If you’re really married to Christ, you’re not trying to hyphenate his last name. It’s Christ. No hyphenations. God’s kingdom takes preeminence permanently. It’s an EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

Like a wife who doesn’t want to take her husband’s last name all the way, you want a way out. You want to leave an open door to keep your old identity. You want to keep remembrance of your old identity, because you don’t really want to change it anyway. You want to make divorce easier, so your covenant probably isn’t really real to begin with.

If you prepare for divorce, is your covenant real?

Hebrews 11 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

People that are mindful to keep the identity of where they came from have an opportunity to return. But people that don’t look back to their old identity prove that they are looking for heaven, therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God. If you are not ashamed, but God is ashamed, what’s more important?

SPEAKING and Work

When you make the switch from preacher of righteousness to a motivational speaker that just happens to be in church on Sunday, you have switched into apostasy. That is, unless you: show exclusivity to Christ, (not putting Him in a bidding war with the other options) demand repentance, and exalt His name higher than your name as in a marriage.

When you refuse to be labeled as a Christian, you are effectively trying to divorce God by refusing to be associated exclusively with His Bride. When you place Christ besides other options, you effectively cheapen the gospel.

Let’s say America names you the greatest preacher, and decides to publicize you, get advice from you, and put you on a pedestal. Your job is to show that you are married to Christ, with his last name superseding yours (EXCLUSIVE COVENANT). Your job is also to show that He is your provider – you don’t need them to provide for you (POWER). Your job is also to make sure that they know that He commands them to repent and commit themselves to Him exclusively as well (REPENTANCE).

Let’s say you are invited to pray for the Presidential Inauguration. Your job is not to make the nation comfortable and say “everyone pray in the name of their god, while I pray in Jesus name.” You don’t get to take a day off from commanding men everywhere to repent. Your job is to say thru your prayer that there is only One God, and Jesus is the way. This shows that you don’t need the power, money, fame or platform that the President gave you, because God is your Provider. That shows Gods power. Your exclusive commitment portrays God for who He really is and accurately reflects what he requires from Believers. The true God is not an option on a buffet line, so to sell Him short is apostasy. If the President is a different religion, and you change your ministry to fit his religion instead of command repentance, that’s a violation of covenant, and getting benefits from it is spiritual prostitution.

Let’s say one day America names you the greatest Christian rapper. Your job is not to try your best to fit in and present Christ as the best option while you marry the hip hop culture. Your job is to present hip-hop as optional while you marry Christ. It’s to represent exclusivity to Christ. You need to sign no covenants or contracts with unbelievers, you don’t need their acceptance even if they gave it to you. You still command men to repent. Your job is not to distance yourself from the niche market formerly known as the bride of Christ.

But a Muslim doesn’t have to call himself a Muslim rapper? Why do I have to distinguish myself in Christ?

Covenant with the Creator thru Jesus Christ is Christianity. Other religions don’t compete with Jesus, they compete with each other as a whole league of invalid deceptions to distract from Jesus. The reason they don’t have to be exclusive is because they are all the same – sin and deception.

If you don’t know the difference in spiritual status between Islam and Christianity, are you really a Christian? Just the fact that you asked that question is a reason for you to examine yourself and see if you are in the faith. Are you even a believer? Islam is just a religion. Christianity is representing Jesus Christ with POWER, COMMANDING REPENTANCE, and in EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

What if America names you the best Christian plumber? Do you have to write Jesus on all your pipes?

Here it goes! That mismatched metaphor from 1989 that just will not die. Well here’s the silver bullet:

Plumbing is not preaching. Plumbing is working with your hands. Preaching is a form of expressing convictions and beliefs. Music is opens up emotions to express affection, commitment, and devotion; i.e. worship. Music is a spiritual thing. Preaching is a spiritual thing. Plumbing is not. Plumbing and preaching are not equal. Music and plumbing are not equal.

If you are a Christian plumber and someone asked you what your testimony is, you tell them. If it’s true to Christ, it will probably show POWER, COMMAND REPENTANCE, AND SHOW EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

If you are a preacher and someone asked you your testimony… How is your testimony true if it is opposite of what you preach?

If you’re preaching is not exclusively for Jesus Christ, is not married to Jesus Christ – and your worship is not exclusively for Jesus Christ and not married to Jesus Christ – then what testimony are you going to give them? Are you going to give them a testimony that is opposite of what you are actually doing?

If you make a decision to be a preacher or a decision to be a worshipper you’re making a spiritual decision. This is not a decision to make tents or do plumbing.

Paul demonstrated the professions of a Christian. He did not make idols for Diana or Zeus on the side. He did not supplement his ministry with a career that had spiritual influence against his ministry.

He worked with tents, inanimate objects with no spiritually negative influence. He supplemented his ministry with income from working with his hands to demonstrate and lead by example.

BiSpirituals claim to be doing the works of Paul, but Paul demonstrated exclusivity to Christ, marriage to Christ. Paul also commanded men everywhere to repent, and Paul did not need provision from work in idolatry.

BiSpirituals say they are like just Paul, being all things to all men… But what was Paul to idolaters? He was a punching bag and a rock target. Paul’s ministry was against the worshippers of Diana. Paul decimated their profits with his ministry, so their trade union got together to try to kill him. What is your ministry doing to the idolatrous professions of our time? Paul got beaten and persecuted by idolaters. That’s called taking up your cross. He did not partner with them to make some extra cash or spread his “gospel”, because that would’ve perverted “the Gospel”. (See Acts 19).

No, Paul didn’t write “Jesus” on all his tents, but he bore the reproach of standing for Christ exclusively in his ministry. He did not partner with idolatry to make his ministry bigger. If he used his speaking gift to sell his tents door to door, or made a musical jingle as a commercial to sell his tents, would that be sin? I doubt it. Tents are not idolatry. If he did the same thing for the temple of Diana, it would be sin.

People that use this “Christian Plumber” metaphor as an excuse for compromise – the Bible defines them as fools.

As a parable in the mouth of fools so the legs of the lame not equal. Proverbs 26:7

ARE YOU MAD? No, but Yes.
I am not mad at spiritual prostitutes at all. Why? They just don’t know what they are doing. One of two things will eventually happen:

  1. Their secular pimps will put them out on the street, then they will return to their Father God, and he will accept them with open arms. We all were whores at some point, and when we are forgiven much, we can love much.
  2. Either that will happen or, they will fall in live with the acceptance and maybe the money their spiritual pimps provide, and die in their sin and destruction.

That’s between them and God.

What I am mad at is the fact that the Body of Christ accepts spiritual whoredom as if it was really ministry. We turn the prostitutes into heroes, and they don’t even repent. They use their sin as springboard marketing into a better career outside of the “niche market” formerly known as the bride of Christ.

People imitate what they see… so the corruption spreads to the little ones, it spreads to the next generation that may have actually wanted to worship him in spirit and in truth, but now have been corrupted through ignorance.

But what if they are representing Christ to the world?

No they are not. If I want to be a missionary to Brazil or Guatemala, I don’t go there honoring ancient Aztec and Inca idols. I go there, I learn and speak their language, I love them, and I represent Jesus Christ EXCLUSIVELY. I command them to REPENT. And I operate in the POWER of God. There’s a huge difference between “speaking someone’s language” and honoring their idolatry.

And if you are a native Brazilian ministering to Brazilians, and you choose honor your culture over Christ, are you really a Christian at all? If you honor cultural idols or popular protocols over Christ, are you really a Christian at all?

Jesus told you that you have to be willing to hate your own father or mother in order to follow Him, and you won’t even hate the idols of your culture?

Talented Prostitution

If my wife wants to help out the household by making some extra cash, one thing I DON’T want her to do is go and be a prostitute.

But what if she is talented enough? No. Why not? Last name. Exclusively mine, anyone that wants to defile that needs to repent.

But what if she is attractive enough? No. Because she is EXCLUSIVELY mine, I have the POWER to provide for her without prostitution income, and you need to repent for asking.

But what if people really like her and they want to put her on a pedestal? No.

How about she dance at this gentleman’s club? They won’t touch her and they’ll really pay a lot. No. She’s exclusively mine. We don’t need that money. Repent for thinking about it.

THIS IS THE LAMB’s WIFE!
The Lambs Wife is His alone, and one of the most tragic things going on right now is spiritual wolves playing games with the Lambs Wife, and defiling her by example. I’m using completely biblical language and translating it to today’s terms to address a problem that has been growing in the body of Christ for several generations.

This is not a debate or an intellectual argument. This is the Lamb’s Wife! She is to behave herself a certain way. We are just trying to get her ready for Jesus Christ’s return.

If We Only Understood God for Who He Is, Not just who we’re Comfortable with Him Being

If We Only Understood God for Who He Is, Not just who we’re Comfortable with Him Being…

We would understand the completeness of His personality, and boast in HIM, not in our favorite segment of Him, which we try to cut out and make into a little idol.

God exercises:
LovingKindness AND
Judgement AND
Righteousness…

Not 1/3, or 2/3, but 3/3 – completely and to the fullest extent. God is great and He transcends our individual personalities.

Jeremiah 9
23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.

Worship the Real Jesus Christ today!

Question: which sin is worse? Natural adultery or spiritual adultery ?

Question: which sin is worse? Natural adultery or spiritual adultery?

Answer: both.

Natural adultery is easy to understand, so it hurts a few people, causes a few people to stumble and fall away from the faith, and it spreads to a few.

Spiritual adultery causes many to stumble, fall in sin and away from the faith, and hurts many people, and it spreads to many… Because very few people understand it.

Stop trickin on God!

1 John 5:21
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen
