So sad to see a Holy Movement turn into a Corrupted Market: We are NOT like MANY who Corrupt the Word of God.

So sad to see a Holy Movement turn into a Corrupted Market. Body of Christ please get the thieves out of the house of prayer and get the wolves out the sheepfold!!! Lives are at stake for our laziness! #killingidols.com

God needs people who will die for the truth, not people who will corrupt and peddle the message.

*[[2Co 2:17]] KJV* For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

In order to understand that scripture you have to understand the word “corrupt”. It carries the connotation of watering down, to make extra profits.

Transliteration: kapēleuō
Phonetic: kap-ale-yoo’-o Thayer Definition:

1. to be a retailer, to peddle 2. to make money by selling anything a. to get sordid gain by dealing in anything, to do a thing for base gain b. to trade in the word of God 1. to try to get base gain by teaching divine truth c. to corrupt, to adulterate 1. peddlers were in the habit of adulterating their commodities for the sake of gain

Origin: from kapelos (a huckster)

Does that means Christians can’t sell anything with biblical instruction in it?? Proverbs 11 says a blessing is on the head of him that sells his surplus food. Psalms 66 says “the Lord gave the word, great was the company of them that published it.”

God has a message to get to a generation. His mercy endures forever, his truth to every generation.

This message is hard, it’s a cross, it may bring suffering or loss, it requires holiness and sacrifice.

You can be faithful to it, or you can corrupt it and peddle it.

“we’ll reach more people without all that preaching and complicated truth”
“it’s all about getting more people anyway, people don’t want that spiritual extreme”
“let’s remix it with this secular idolatry so we get more attention”
“it’s so hard to be a divider, let’s just find the least common denominator, and brand it to as many people as possible”
“doing it this way reaches more people, which means more money, and its all about reaching people anyway”

All these types of thoughts are substituted for obedience. They seem wise, but they actually delay Gods true purposes and cause people to be led astray and burn in hell.

If you lead 100 people down a narrow road, and the swerve to the left because the wide road, that looks like its going the same way, fits 1000 people: You have just led 1000 people off the narrow road that leads to life and into the broad road that leads to destruction. Selah.

Paul said that there were many false apostles that followed him around, corrupting his message and disguising themselves as wiser apostles. They were really messengers of Satan.

2 Corinthians, and even most of the new testament- is all about teaching true messengers to defend against false messengers that sneak in to corrupt the truth.

It’s the same today, there are “many” who “peddle” and “corrupt” the word of God.

There are false messengers and blind leaders that don’t see the beauty of holiness or see marketing as a way to communicate the whole message; but they look at God’s people and see a market to conquer and make more profitable by spiritual cost cutting and “cross cutting.”

Their negative spiritual impact is mind-bogglingly huge, but they will never know, because they are spiritually blind. So they just “wait till judgement day” to find out that they were the workers of iniquity that Jesus never really knew (Matt 7), or that their work was as useless as hay & stubble (2 Cor 3).That’s why true Servants of God must warn and be warned with aggressive vigilance.

This is why you have to focus on being a true messenger for Jesus that makes disciples instead of a false prophet that gets the praise if the masses.

And also why you can’t fear death or loss if you really want to obey God.

In the book if Nehemiah, Tobias was the person who opposed and plotted against Nehemiah when he was building the walls of Jerusalem (symbolizing holiness and protection). But then after he failed to stop them, he did so much business with Jews that they gave him a room in the temple, and kicked out the Levites- who God set up to be the power source of worship & prayer for the Kingdom of God- but they kicked them out for business reasons, of course. So the levites were working in the fields and the thief and enemy of the truth was living in the house of prayer.

Get them out! A generation could be lost if we dont get this right. True revival diverted and delayed means lost souls.

Corrupting the Word of God makes it easier to sell, but in the long run more people end up in hell. His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.

Sometimes the TroubleMaker is Really the PeaceMaker

Those in authority called Elijah the “troubler of Israel” because they wanted to continue mixing their idolatry, baal worship and murderous ways into the kingdom of God without interruption.

*[[1Ki 18:17-18]] KJV* And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

But really they were the troublers of Israel and Elijah was sent by God to bring true peace back to the kingdom of God.

Jesus didnt say to be a peaceKeeper.. Sometimes you have to confront things and be a peaceMAKER.

*[[Mat 5:9]] KJVLite* Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Time to Turn

All the years christian hip hop and rhythm and praise have been out, we should have been created some new sounds and impacted the world, especially if we have the Creator inside…Instead we still following after the world, doing remixes and mixtapes, counterfeit evangelism, committing adultery, divorcing our wives and divorcing our Holy God. #killingidols.com #jugularcutministries #timetoturnaround

Ike 27:9 ChalkDust- Spiritually Violent Repentance

I almost flipped when i read this this morning. Never “seen” it before in my life.

[[Isa 27:9]] KJV* By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be PURGED; and this is all the FRUIT to take away his sin; WHEN he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images s
hall not stand up.

– Our iniquity is not purged and our repentance has no fruit UNTIL we beat the idol stones into chalkdust, rip down the props of idolatry, and tear down their images. #killingidols.com

BEGINNINGS MATTER: The Critical Importance of Biblically Deductive Thought Processes

BEGINNINGS MATTER: The Critical Importance of Biblically Deductive Thought Processes

The Fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of Wisdom

This article might sound intellectual but it’s not. It’s really simple. As a matter of fact, it might make you annoyed with intellectuals that are really dumb, because they reject God. The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of Wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). If you are not scared of GOD, you haven’t even started with knowledge yet. Whatever area you are not scared of God’s judgments in, is the area where you are empty in knowledge, a fool. (Prov 1:7)

I talked with a woman that had read Killing Idols For REVIVAL; they were so excited that they bought 10 copies and were giving them out to friends. She said that one thing that she got from it was a deeper understanding of the Fear of The Lord, which she also happened to be studying when her and her husband read the book! We talked about how the fear of the Lord is not only just a “reverential awe” or respect, but an actual fear of His judgments which causes us to avoid evil. “Knowing the Terror” of the Lord, we persuade men (2 Corinthians 5:11).

Do we Know the TERROR of the Lord? Well maybe that’s why we have a hard time persuading men. BOOYAH!!! Stop the blog right here and recieve the offering. LoL just kidding.

How Did Charles Darwin singlehandedly destroy western culture?

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools Romans 1:22

How did we lose the fear of the Lord culturally?

By putting a question mark on the book of Genesis.

Beginnings matter. When  Darwin questioned Genesis in science, He attempted to displace God as the First Cause of the Earth. That lead to Marxism in politics, Nietsche’s God-is dead based philosophy, case based law, survival of the fittest  business concepts, outcome and socialization based education, Keynesianism in economics, liberalism in Churches, etc… even racism exploded after Darwin.

If Genesis is gone, nothing else really matters. If God didn’t create the world, what does Jesus need to die for?  When the foundation was destroyed, what could the righteous do?

Psalms 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

100 years later, the cultures that believed the bible were completely destroyed. Now sex sells everything, atheism is considered intellectual, and we are into the 3rd generation of government legalized and financed abortion. In our culture, we literally worship Baal (money & power) Asherah (sex), and Moloch (sacrificing our children).

How did Darwin put a question mark on Genesis?

He did it by looking at some birds! Some beaks were different sizes, some beaks were different colors… He also looked at the results of an earthquake, and saw that the habitats adapted. He also looked at some fossils… so God didn’t really create the earth. How did He make that quantum leap in nonsensical logic? He did it because He wanted to. He didn’t fear the Lord, so he had no access to knowledge or wisdom.

Real scientists have figured out that what Darwin observed is called genetics. Different species have different genes, and how they change is according to the genes that God designed them with.  For instance, my wife is caramel colored, and I’m honey colored. Our son is yellow. Does that mean he’s evolving into a canary, and God doesn’t exist? Obviously not.

Do habitats change over time? Yes. Do certain species die out? Yes. Does that mean they came out of nothing? No.

Yet over 100 years after Darwin died, people still believe this foolishness. They even teach it. Darwin derived cause from a bunch of facts. But what was his cause? It can be found in the full title of his book:  On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

So Darwin’s real purpose was to prove that God didn’t exist (He wasn’t the Origin), and that certain races were favoured in the struggle for life. So His Godlessness led to racism.

When we preach the gospel , we run into this all the time. “Yeah I used to have faith but when I got here my professors said….”

Staring at Facts While Ignoring Cause is A Recipe For Disaster

How did people get so ignorant? It’s the power of inductive thought. Staring at the facts while making up stories about causes is a recipe for disaster.

That’s like buying a Ford F-150, taking it apart, listing all the pieces, and then telling Ford “you didn’t create this auto, I have all the parts right here.”

Most things from people to birds to building are made of mostly dirt and water. (hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon.) No matter how good you are at analyzing dirt and water, you cannot use it as an excuse to be willfully ignorant of the Creator that designed the different compositions of dirt & water.

“God, I studied all the dirt, and I didn’t see you.” Not only will you be going to hell, you will be an idiot going to hell.

Causes Matter.

Beginnings Matter.

The Fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of Wisdom.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INDUCTIVE AND DEDUCTIVE THINKING

Inductive Thinking: Looking at the facts, conducting experiments, getting witnesses

“Starting from the top”

“Looking at the results, the fruits of the tree”

“Observing the facts on earth”

Deductive Thinking: Looking at causes, determining purpose, testing out truth

“Building from the bottom”

“Looking at the foundation, the roots of the tree”

“Beginning with Truth from Heaven.”

What is the cause of earth?

In the beginning, God.

All the facts were caused by the first cause. No amount of experimentation and observation of facts can change cause. If you want to know the cause, you have to start from the top. Looking at the facts to determine cause is like looking at a bunch of bird beaks and saying that “God didn’t create the world.”

The danger of inductive or deductive thinking on its own:

Inductive thinking by itself will blind you to reality, and cause you to think and act in a useless manner.

Deductive thinking (on its own) will cause you to know a lot but not do anything about it.

Inductive question: what are the facts?

Deductive question: what is the cause?

Inductive question: what all happened?

Deductive question: why did it happen?

Inductive question: what are the statistics?

Deductive question: what is the reason?

Let’s talk about a couple of natural examples:

NCAA national championship game (I wrote this before the game last week):

Why is Kentucky and Kansas in the national championship game?

Facts:

Kentucky averages 77.1 points per game (20th overall), 39.2 rebounds per game (15th overall), 13.3 assists per game (132nd overall).

Kansas averages: 75 points per game (36th overall), 36.9 rebounds per game (54th overall), 15.6 assists per game (21st overall).

Kentucky’s record was: 32-2

Kansas record was: 27-6

Causes:

They both have major shot blockers in the paint (Anthony Davis & Jeff Withey), which makes it harder for other teams to score in the paint where it’s supposed to be the easiest to score.

Their players are bigger and more athletic than most of their competition.

They are the winningest programs in NCAA history, and happen to have excellent coaching and top level recruiting the past couple of years. John Calipari goes after the best H.S. players in the nation, and Bill Self’s coaching staff  (including big man coach Danny Manning, and female strength trainer Andrea Hudy) has really caused his big men to excel.

Kansas has an excellent ballhandling pg. Kentucky has great outside shooters.

Why did Kentucky win?

Kentucky has a greater concentration of the best players. Not only that, but the NBA lockout gave them a chance to play together against NBA players twice as strong and skilled as them. This wisdom made them a united and cohesive team even before the NCAA season started.

John Calipari uses Godly wisdom that is practical. He gets all the best high school players that were designed by God with an aptitude to be the best basketball players on the planet. Many of them come to him because his program (instead of trying to convince them to be used as cash cows for the NCAA for 4 years) is designed to get them making money with their talents as soon as possible, as grown men that have to provide for their families. This is a responsibility they have before God.

My Point:

Deductive thinking always leads back to God’s Purposes, God’s Wisdom, and God’s Truth. Inductive thinking just looks at facts on earth.

Let’s look at another example in the natural.

Trayvon Martin case:

Night of Trayvon Martin Killing Filled with Conflicting Reports

I don’t think the CAUSE of the killing was racism, which I talked about in ReThinking the Trayvon Martin Case. But I think that actually knowing the cause is the most important point. The media will try to distract us with a bunch of facts that don’t matter, and instigate black vs white, or right wing vs left wing conflicts with false causes.

The inner motivation for the fight or the killing is probably the same as for most killings: fear, anger, pride, and testosterone; i.e. “the flesh.” But in the case of the law, the inner cause doesn’t matter as much as the actual outer cause for the killing.

It doesn’t matter who is black, or white.

It doesn’t matter who was strong, who had a gun, who had bad grades, who was drunk, or that they fought.

If doesn’t matter if they both were members of the NAACP, or members of respective black and Hispanic rival gangs.

It doesn’t matter who cursed at who first, or how polite George Zimmerman was when he rolled up on a stranger with a truck.

It doesn’t matter how many witnesses are brought up to confirm the “facts” at the end of the fight.

What matters is the cause of the conflict. Cause is what matters.

If George Zimmerman had no justifiable outward cause to chase Trayvon, then Travyvon was innocent and George is guilty.

Proverbs 3:30Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

Here’s a question to make it clear why this was an injustice: If two guys in a bar get in a fight, and one pulls out a gun and shoots the other… Who goes to jail: the dead person or the one that killed him? Is it murder? Or is it aggravated manslaughter?

It may not be premeditated murder, but it may be aggravated manslaughter. I’ll tell you what doesn’t happen – HE DOESN’T GO FREE! And that’s on Private Property.

But what about Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law? Well who’s ground was it? He chased Trayvon on public property and started the conflict with no just cause. Then it went bad and he killed Trayvon. Any law that excuses that is a law not based in the Fear of the Lord, and is void of wisdom. The shedding of innocent blood defiles the land.

2 Samuel 23:3 The God of Israel said to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the Fear of God.

When you create laws based on the fear of man instead of the fear of God, you get these types of results. It all goes back to the Fear of the Lord being the beginning of Wisdom.

Beginnings Matter;

Causes Matter.

Foundations Matter.

Using facts at the end to determine cause is the dumbest thing since Darwin.

Really, both deductive and inductive thinking is necessary to make good decisions. But deductive thinking is primary, and inductive thinking takes a support role to confirm, support, or deny purposes and beginnings.

Inductive thinking comes naturally for most people. But it a world where believing in absolute truth is unpopular, deductive thinking is less common. Very few people believe in the first cause, or foundation of truth. As I said in the beginning, this effects everything. Even our laws, business, education, and politics have changed foundations from truth-based to case-study based.

Have you ever had a disagreement with someone who told a bunch of stories and brought up a bunch of facts that didn’t matter, because they ignored the root cause of the issue?

“Please forget about steps 1-3, but we remember 4-5, and we have documentation on steps 6,7,8… everybody saw 9-11 and we didn’t do ANYTHING wrong… but what happened all by itself at 12 was very very unfortunate.”

Beginnings Matter

Foundations Matter

First Causes Matter

Purpose Matters

Roots Matter, because what’s in the roots will eventually be in the fruits!

Here’s another example:

Abortion

The Birth Control Movement was response to the freedom of the slaves. Who funded birth control and the invention and propagation of family planning? Who inspired Hitler’s genocidal techniques. It was the American Birth Control league! Darwin (there’s that dummy again) told them that blacks were inferior in his book. (On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life)

Therefore Birth control and eugenics was caused by darwinism, and racism. How did people justify their racism? By distracting you with a bunch of facts that don’t apply to the cause. Even to this day, Planned Parenthood is primarily in urban environments, but they claim that abortion is about women’s safety and helping poor people. Who funded Margaret Sanger? The Birth Control Leauge, the former name for Planned Parenthood.

It doesn’t matter what story they come up with now, or that a black President loves it, or that it is entrenched in our society. What matters is cause.

 

WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?

In the Beginning, God Created Heaven and Earth. This is the root cause of all issues in life, and the source for all of our thinking.

God is the primary cause. God is the Beginning.

We depend on the Word of God for everything. We don’t do things because they “work.” We do things out of obedience to the Word.

We don’t let reality change our faith. We change reality with our faith, because we know the Creator.

Our doctrine is not determined by our experience, the Bible determines our doctrine and our experience.

Don’t fall a victim to inductive thinking. Get to know the Cause.

BEGINNINGS MATTER.

The Fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of knowledge and wisdom.

WoW.

When I first spoke up about the Trayvon Martin case, it was not about race, it was based on Proverbs 31:8,9, speaking up for the oppressed, Psalms 82. It was about the Shedding of Innocent Blood. It was about Envying not the Oppressor, Proverbs 3:30,31.

But now after seeing how racially divided the opinions are on this  case… maybe race does have a little something to do with it? The reports are so conflicting on what actually happened, but people tend to divide either along race lines or political views whether they think George is innocent.

Also, did you know that Sanford, Florida has a storied history of racism, going back to the fact that the city’s founder couldn’t even hire black laborers because the people of the town reacted violently. Florida also had more lynchings per capita than any other state in the South, and Sanford Florida was a place that Jackie Robinson couldn’t even workout for baseball’s spring training, because angry mobs came to make him leave. Spanning from the 1870s to the 1940s to 2012, this clearly is not an issue of flesh and blood, but of principalities and powers (Ephesians 6). Love and the Truth of God is the antidote.

I still hold to my first thoughts: the natural cause of the killing wasn’t race. The response however has been largely based on race, but more on socialist versus fascist political views. Socialist=left wing, Fascist=right wing.

For the antidote to the endless and divisive socialist/fascist dialectic, (a dialectic is an endless argument with no conclusion, meant to go back and forth forever like this run on redundant parentheses, done just to move forward in an upward spiral, because a conclusion would be an admission of absolute truth, and we can’t handle the absolute Truth, and the real power (the dialectic promoter) is charging for tickets and advertising, and just using the dialectic (war) to gain power over both sides and money for himself, so he doesn’t want absolute truth to end the dialectic war) check out this blog about Biblical Authority and Constitutional liberty. I say this is an antidote, not an alternative, because alternatives are just meant to alternate. Antidotes are substances that have the ability to counteract a poison, i.e, truth is the antidote for two alternative lies.

The case is actually very simple, if you think honestly and in a balanced way. George Zimmerman was probably not racist, just human. However, he instigated a conflict and killed another human. Innocent blood was shed. He may not be a ‘premeditated’ murderer, but he is guilty of voluntary manslaughter. Any law that excuses him is an unjust law.

I’ll have a blog coming up next week that will contain my thought process behind that. It will be a blog about Biblically deductive thinking skills. Its a doozy, so be on the lookout!

But for now, here’s a question for you to think about: what’s the difference between murder and manslaughter?

What did God say about it in the Bible? The first 10 people that can find me a scripture where God differentiates between pre-meditated murder and manslaughter can get a FREE copy of Killing Idols For Revival!

WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST – the HUGE Sword Naming Names, but with Gentleness! – Week of Swords and Axes Day 3

WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST

a.k.a. the HUGE Sword God gave Shereena! Naming Names, but with Gentleness.

Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

This makes me want to weep. How much of this do we have going on right now?

What does it mean to justify the wicked?

jus·ti·fy

verb /ˈjəstəˌfī/

  1. Show or prove to be right or reasonable
  • – the person appointed has fully justified our confidence
  1. Be a good reason for
  • – the situation was grave enough to justify further investigation
  1. Declare or make righteous in the sight of God

wick·ed

adjective /ˈwikid/

  1. Evil or morally wrong
  • – a wicked and unscrupulous politician
  1. Intended to or capable of harming someone or something
  • – he should be punished for his wicked driving

When you know the commandments and the word of the Lord, and you tell someone who breaks those commandments and does not keep those words that they are right in what they do, this is an abomination to the Lord.

a·bom·i·na·tion

noun /əˌbäməˈnāSHən/

  1. A thing that causes disgust or hatred
  • – this bill is an abomination to all mankind
  • – concrete abominations masquerading as hotels
  1. A feeling of hatred
  • – their abomination of indulgence

Justifying the wicked is disgusting to God, something He HATES!

Christian Musicians, Artists, and Celebrities that Justify the Wicked

An area where justification of the wicked is extremely prevalent is in Christian music. Christians celebrate ungodly musicians and singers, we even go as far as collaborating and making music with ungodly people. Now, Christian artists and wicked music artists are making music together at an alarming rate, and no one seems to think it is wrong. But, what does God’s word say?

MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES VERY SLOWLY

Isaiah 5:11-24

11Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.  13Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.  14Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. 15And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: 16But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

17Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat. 18Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: 19That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! 20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Let’s Take Some More Time to Ponder and Analyze Isaiah 5:11-23

-Strong drink: The mingling of the holy and profane, wine of the world and false wine of the spirit.  (vs. 22)

-Strong men (vs. 22): rich men, mighty in the earth, men with influence, celebrities, men who have a form of godliness.

-They justify the wicked for their own reward (vs. 23): increased influence, money, power, fame, self-promotion.

-Verse 12 specifically addresses music and how it is used in a corrupt way (the harp, tabret, viol). Music is useless unless it glorifies God how He truly is not how we want Him to be. Music without God leads to sin and rebellion if they do not regard the work of God or consider the operation of His hands (vs. 12).

They may regard God with their mouths, but do they regard the work of God which is righteous? No because they are chasing wine early in the morning. Do they consider the work of His hands which is HOLY? No because wine is at their feasts.

We have Christian artists that are mixing strong drink. They put “gospel” songs on raunchy secular mix tapes. They use their influence to promote secular labels, artists and cds. In their eyes they are spreading the message of Christ on a secular mix tape…but if a Christian follower who they market to buys that mix tape, they will hear ONE watered down “gospel” song and TWELVE songs about drugs, sex, and profane living?!

Lecrae puts a song on raunchy secular mixtape by DJ Statik Selekta http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/population-control-bonus-track/id463889619, and promotes a secular Hip Hop event http://missdimplez.com/2012/02/uhsxsw-profile-1-lecrae/

Mali Music signs to Konvict Records with Akon http://allhiphop.com/2011/11/01/akon-signs-gospel-rapper-mali-music-to-konvict-muzik/ (the symbolism in the fact that Akon’s record label is called Konvict, a convict is someone who was convicted and imprisoned for crimes – bondage, and Isaiah 5:13 says “My people are led into captivity…”, is a whole other topic in itself!)

Is this right? WRONG!! This is leading people into spiritual confusion; verse 13 goes on to say “My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge”…who has taken them captive? Their enemies have taken them captive. How were they led captive?

Strong drink (false doctrine, mixing wine of the world and wine of the Spirit), music and wine without regard for the work of God (His work is His commandments Exodus 32:12)

Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

The works of God cause His enemies to submit to HIM. But instead the strong drink, music and ungodly feasting cause God’s people to submit to His enemies (the works of darkness). They do not consider the operation of His hands (the way GOD operates: hating sin, loving holiness, righteous judgements, condemnation of wickedness, and pardoning those who repent of sin, not honoring the sin).

-Verse 13 continues on saying …”and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”. Wait a minute, if they were feasting and drinking wine in verse 12, why are they hungry (famished) and thirsty in verse 13? Because when you do not regard the work of God or consider the way HE operates, you are led into death. Only the works of God and His operations bring LIFE (satisfying hunger and thirst Isaiah 49:10, John 4:13-14, John 6:27-37, Isaiah 65:13, Revelations 7:16)

-Who is making the wine and mingling the strong drink? This is the strong man, the rich man, the powerful man. When the strong man makes the drink, the multitudes will drink it. This is another reason why many Christian artists are sound at first, while they are gaining followers.

Then once they hit a certain status of fame and riches they switch and start mingling strong drink. The strong man makes the wine, because people will drink deceit from a rich and mighty man because of their status and success. So the strong men run to the mixture, because a strong man wants to make money off of the wicked and their influence. Spiritually, the strong men are prostitutes.

-People love to justify working with darkness and mixing ungodly with Godly by saying “well, Jesus ate with sinners and people got mad at Him too.” Jesus preached repentance to them. Jesus rebuked and prophesied to them, Jesus called them OUT of the darkness they were in. These people did NOT join Jesus in ministry. They were NOT part of His inner circle. He did NOT come into agreement with them in business deals.

He did NOT say let me follow you around and introduce me to your circle so I can show people who I am and maybe they will get saved…HE SAID FOLLOW ME!!! HE SAID IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS!!! HE SAID IF YOU DO NO PICK UP YOUR CROSS YOU ARE NOT WORTHY OF ME!! Jesus preached repentance, those who wanted to repent, did it and followed Him. Those who did not repent, Jesus warned his followers to avoid (the rich young ruler, Pharisees, etc.)

When the rich young ruler (Matt. 19:16-24) did not want to GIVE UP his sin and wealth to follow Jesus he turned and went away. Jesus did not follow after him, join in his lifestyle in hopes that one day the rich man would believe, that maybe if I follow him around long enough then He will accept me…Nor did Jesus try to capitalize on the influence or riches of the young man, he was a ruler with great influence and riches. Jesus did NOT try to even use the young man’s status as a way to preach the gospel (which is most Christian’s excuse for mingling).

“Let’s make a deal – you’re rich, I’m Jesus Christ… We can make something happen!”

NO!!! Repent for the kingdom of God is at HAND!

-This will lead you to captivity. Those who justify the wicked, who are entertained with their music and wicked feasts, have no knowledge. Hell is enlarging itself for them.

-It is all a big party! They go down into hell in the midst of their glory, pomp, multitudes and rejoicing (grammys, fans, awards, partying, shopping, etc.) vs. 14.

– Because they desire the reward they receive from justifying the wicked, they try to silence and destroy the just, anyone who stands against them and their sinful system.

– The key issues are justifying the wicked and mixing the wine of the world with the Holy wine of God. And justifying the wicked for personal gain. Either telling them their sin is ok or simply not telling them their sin is wrong and making them feel like their sin is ok for what you stand to gain from it.

 

Isaiah 5

20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

 

-The passing of Whitney Houston is very sad, but we have to be honest. She did not bear the fruits of righteousness. The BIBLE says you know a tree by its fruit. Now that she is deceased we see so many clips of her singing gospel songs, but where are the clips of her high? Where are the movie clips of her doing sex scenes? Why isn’t any media playing clips of her crudely cursing in her movies?

And all the famous Pastors would rather brag about how close they were to her and say she’s in a better place rather than mourn for her, or use the opportunity to introduce the fear of the Lord and obedience to the gospel to her fans. Instead they were her fans themselves, and used their relationship with her and her status to gain reward for themselves!

TD Jakes justifies Whitney Houston and will make much money on the UNGODLY movie  Sparkle, he made with her. He leads his congregation in justifying her.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcs2qrocEvI

*The remake of Sparkle, a movie that TD Jakes (a Christian “Bishop”) produced, was written by Mara Brock Akil and Directed by her husband Salim Akil (the team who writes blasphemy for BET’s The Game.) They are Muslim, so by “coincidence” – The Game is filled with the blasphemy of Jesus, fake Christianity, using God’s name in vain, and the portrayal illicit sex. The music was done by R. Kelly, who made fornication music for an entire generation.

What is the movie about? A group of singing sisters leaving the church to make it big…Hmmm, I think I smell strong drink. How could a Bishop in the church work to produce a film leading millions into deception and captivity believing He was doing it by the leading of the Holy Ghost? Strong Drink!

-Did you know that the Catholic Church is even reintroducing “indulgences?” An indulgence is literally buying a dead soul’s way into heaven. After someone has passed you can pay money  at and say some prayers and at some point the priest would tell you that this person was now in heaven.

 

WHAT?! They were justifying the wicked for a reward, MONEY. The justification of the wicked for reward by the Christian church is the same as selling indulgences: give me your money, give me the status of your fame and I will tell you God accepts you. I will tell you you are sanctified, I will tell you that you are going to heaven, or “in a better place” when you die.

 

Proverbs 24:24

24He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:

Exodus 23:7

7Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Psalm 66 18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

So in the desire for money, fame, fortune, business deals self-promotion and vanity as representatives of God to the world we may justify the wicked and make them think they are ok. But GOD is NOT justifying them, so we ok the sin, but GOD is the true judge.

-Refused to repent when they were rebuked on Twitter for attending a Beyonce Concert. These concerts have been known to resemble demon temple worship, with male prostitute-type dancers simulating sex acts. They despise holiness by calling it a “bubble.” So those who refuse to follow idolatry with them are in a “bubble.” Google it to.

Mary Mary openly confess to enjoying secular music and making music with all the wicked musicians they can partner with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wINyjMs_sw This is the doctrine of Jezebel.

Revelation 2:20  20Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Isaiah 5:12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.

We usually avoid “naming names” with this type of message… but this is the week of swords and axes!  The Bible says “them that sin, rebuke openly.” These people are openly promoting this stuff. Private sins get private rebukes. Public sins get public correction. We would love for people to repent so we can take their names out of this post. We Pray For These People and we hope that we as the Body of Christ repent and get mercy from God instead of harden our hearts to go further in encouraging  our hearts in wickedness.

Just as we spent our time, energy, and money promoting the gospel with ministers and artists when they serve Jesus and the gospel in holiness – we give correction and protection when they depart from Jesus, the gospel, and holiness. We are doing this because it is our Responsibility.

John 10:12 (The true shepherd does not leave sheep when they see the wolf coming). The wolf is ravaging the body of Christ right now.

This is the Week of Swords and Axes here at SoSpression blog. Why? God is fighting with big swords, pruning His people with small swords, and taking Axes to the poison filled roots of every wicked tree in His Kingdom.
