How Do I Uncover, Expose, And Destroy False Doctrine?

The Bible doesn’t push false doctrine.

Male and female will take a Bible verse and create false doctrine in direct violation of Proverbs 30:6.

Proverbs 30:6 (NKJV) “Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”

True doctrine remains the same 100% of the time.

True doctrine works every time.

False doctrine never works 100% of the time.

Except that false doctrine works only once to deceive you, and fails after that every time.

We use foolish moronic excuses to soften the blow that the doctrine taught was true but it was false doctrine that failed.

When it failed, we use the false egregious answer to failed doctrine that I missed it or I didn’t have enough faith.

No.

You miss-applied the Word.

You’ve taken Scripture out of its original contextual setting and perverted it for your own gain.

James 4:1-3 (NKJV) “Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.”

Moronic answers keeps us deceived into thinking that next time, it’ll work.

satan steals a little truth, mix it with a lie, and there you have it.

A false doctrine from seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

You can’t make people that want false doctrine give up false doctrine and their famous tv preachers.

Could they recover?

Yes, but only when they’re willing to be set free and obey the Bible as written.

How to smell false doctrine and their teachers?

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (NKJV) “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”

2 Peter 1:19-21 (NKJV) “And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

Anything out of the ordinary is deception, and not sound doctrine or true faith at all.

It’s disguised to deceive.

Eve was the first human to receive false doctrine and 2 Timothy 4:1-4 is the pattern.

2 Timothy 4:1-4 (NKJV) I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

Eve didn’t want to “endure sound doctrine” so the serpent came along to question what God said (sound doctrine), and according to her own desires, she listened to the serpent.

What did she desire?

The knowledge of good and evil. She wanted to be like God, knowing good and evil….

Genesis 3:6 (NKJV) “So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.”

Notice the pattern.

She ate and then she gave it to Adam and he ate. Adam was influenced by false teaching that came from satan, through Eve.

Genesis 3:17-19 (NKJV) “Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”

That’s why women enter through certain doors to get attention. Spiritual gifts and music.

1 Corinthians 14:34-40 (NKJV) “Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home;

for it is shameful for women to speak in church. Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant.

Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.”

These Scriptures are there for a reason, and to avoid them is dereliction and neglect.

That’s why 1 Timothy 2:8-15 and 2 Timothy 3:6-7 is there.

1 Timothy 2:8-15 (NKJV) “I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.”

Notice the Amplified Bible of verse 15….

1 Timothy 2:15 (AMP) “Nevertheless [the sentence put upon women of pain in motherhood does not hinder their souls’ salvation, and] they will be saved [eternally] if they continue in faith and love and holiness with self-control, [saved indeed] through the Childbearing or by the birth of the divine Child.”

It doesn’t make sense that women be saved by giving birth to children.

What’s the results of allowing women to have authority over men and to teach men?

Revelation 2:20-23 (NKJV) “Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

Then there’s false prophets and teachers that deceive gullible women.

2 Timothy 3:1-7 (NKJV) “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Solomon’s heart was turned from God by such immoral women in 1 Kings 11:1-13.

Even women with seemingly good intentions will use their influence to take you in an unintended direction.

That’s why good intentions isn’t the will of God.

Acts 17:11 is the way you test false teachers and their doctrine.

Then Revelation 2:2 (NKJV) “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars…”

Never be afraid to put them to the test.

1 John 4:1-3 (NKJV) “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”

Never be afraid to put them to the test.

The will of God is the highest over every influence, no matter how good the intention is.

So avoid false prophets, teachers, and immoral women that have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof.

Inflation & The Scarcity Of Food

Luke 21:10-11 (NKJV) “Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”

Notice the word “famine.”

λιμός
STRONG’S NUMBER:g3042
Dictionary Definition 3042. λιμός limos; probably from 3007 (through the idea of destitution); a scarcity of food: — dearth, famine, hunger.
AV (12) – famine 7, hunger 3, dearth 2;

All throughout the world, people have been experiencing “scarcity of food.”

In the Netherlands, the farmers were told to go “green.” Farming shut down. In Ukraine, farming has been reduced because of Putin’s invasion. Sri Lanka’s government experienced an insurrection (unlike January 6) where scarcity of food and inflation has decimated their economy.

Venezuela is still the same. Famish is everywhere because of a despot.

The United States is experiencing inflation, farmers are suffering, the cost of living has gone up.

The Lord told us these things to show us that He’s soon to return.

Three signs.

  1. Great earthquakes.
  2. Great famine.
  3. Great pestilences.

All three, since He was received into heaven have come to pass. These three things are still occurring.

Bill Gates owns 290K acres of land in the United States, and he was behind some of the events with Covid.

These signs are increasing like a woman in labor pangs. They increase until the baby is born.

So when it comes to famine. It’s a clear end time sign.

But as the Lord said, “…the end is not yet.”

Look Up. Your Redemption Draws Near.

Luke 21:25-28 (NKJV) “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

I used to quote this all the time, “Look up. For your redemption draws near,” but when you look at it in context of the rest of the Scriptures, we see something different.

This doesn’t discount Romans 13:11-14, but this passage of Scripture is connected to Revelation 6:12-17 (NKJV)

“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

When will the Lord come in great power and great glory? Not at the rapture of the church, but at the Second Coming of Christ.

Revelation 19:11-16 (NKJV)

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.

Remember in the very first Scripture in this text that the sun, moon, and stars are mentioned?

Joel 2:28-32 (NKJV)

“And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,
As the LORD has said,
Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.”

Peter quotes this in Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost. As a side note, the Day of Pentecost is also known as the Feast of Weeks. 49 days after the Feast of Firstfruits, the Jews were to celebrate a feast and on the 50th day after the Sabbath which would be Passover, on the 50th day, it would be Pentecost.

But the point is that the Lord would come during the final year of the 7 year tribulation period as prophesied in Daniel chapters 9 and 12, and Zechariah chapters 12, 13, and 14.

The Lord Jesus explained this in Matthew 24 about the “abomination of desolation.”

So the Jews are to look up, for their redemption draws near when they’re being killed in the second half of the great tribulation period. It would be at the end of the 1,260 days, or 42 weeks that the Lord Jesus would appear in great power and great glory to save Israel from destruction.

Luke 21:20-24 (NKJV)

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

It’s a message to the Jews, not the church. Again we don’t discount Romans 13:11-14.

But that’s what it means as far as the Jews are concerned, to “Look up. For your redemption draws near.”

Your Version Of Normal’s Not Coming

As the pandemic episode ended, many people weren’t returning to Christ or the church.

It wasn’t what they’ve expected. Also, people are looking for a reason not to go back.

The reasons vary.

For instance, when the job market shifted. Cost of living is so high that it forced people to look for affordable housing and low costs in food, gas, and other items. Such a move would also mean leaving the local church.

And for some, they would leave, and never re-attend another local church in the new area where they’ve moved to.

Before the pandemic, the decline was noticeable.

Then the politics, cultural differences, and other hot bed items really put a wedge between people. It used to be that people would live with these differences, agreeing to disagree, but now, it’s a different ballgame.

Well, it didn’t catch God by surprise.

The Lord knew that man would walk away from certain places and it’s not over.

As we get closer to the return of the Lord, the Bible warned us about the end times. That people would defect from the Lord and His Word.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NKJV) “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron…”

But they would depart the faith with this attitude.

Malachi 3:13-15 (NKJV)

“Your words have been harsh against Me,”
Says the LORD,
“Yet you say,
‘What have we spoken against You?’
You have said,
‘It is useless to serve God;
What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,
And that we have walked as mourners
Before the LORD of hosts?
So now we call the proud blessed,
For those who do wickedness are raised up;
They even tempt God and go free.'”

This is what Israel said to the Lord. This would be the last book that would mark what’s termed as “The Silence Between The Testaments.”

Since Israel determined that it was useless to serve God, God in turn said for 400 years, it will be useless to talk to you.

The Lord refused to talk to Israel for 400 years.

The next time the Lord would talk would be through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 1:1-3 (NKJV) God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…”

Many were assuming that the world would go back to normal, but this isn’t the case.

Things are setting up for the end of the end.

Events are happening faster than we could keep up.

As the return of the Lord draws near, it’s imperative for those that remain in Him to have this mindset.

Romans 13:11-14 (NKJV) “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

The Aftermath Of Roe’s Death

God uses people as He pleases.

There’s no question that former president Trump and senator Mitch McConnell made it possible to set up the overturning of Roe.

But it took 5 catholic justices to not look at the moral of the phantom precedent, but to look at the text of the Constitution and determined that the abortion question returns to the states.

The ruling didn’t ban abortion. It only overturned the phantom precedent. Roe was a bad ruling. The justices observed that the text of abortion isn’t in the Constitution and is on solid legal footing.

But some states have now enacted bans on abortion, in some places up to a certain week. There’s no question that it’s cause for rejoicing, but can we really rejoice when the murdering of babies in certain states continue?

The rejoicing ought to be measured because there’s been in existence other means and methods to kill a baby. It will force women that get pregnant during fornication and adultery to look elsewhere to end the life of a child.

Molech loves the painful way of killing a child.

Before the children of Israel occupied the land that’s now Israel, the Canaanites, Hittites, Ammonites, and Sidonians were there.

The Ammonites chief god was Molech or Milcom as another name for the same false god.

They would bring their children to a large statue and set the inside compartment on fire and burn their children alive. These people were ruthless. They never cared about children because they were more concerned about worship of a god that demanded the death of their children by throwing them in the fire.

It was like saying “to hell with your child.”

As man progressed to find other means to murder a baby, abortion was the money maker. Acid and forceps. Also, when a man doesn’t want to pay child support, killing a baby becomes the means by which to prevent paying child support.

Now the battle returns to the states. And it’s already a bad day for Democrats and some Republicans that secretly and openly support the murder of innocent babies.

For almost 50 years, the abortion of a baby was a choice that women made.

But for the most part, males that can’t control their bodies abuse women twice. Males impregnate women, and then they tell them to get an abortion. So the woman is left to do the dirty work.

This is the real war on women.

Lust operates in women as well as with men.

1 Corinthians 6:18 (KJV) “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”

From Strong’s Dictionary g4202. πορνεία porneia; from 4203; harlotry (including adultery and incest); figuratively, idolatry: — fornication.
AV (26) – fornication 26;
illicit sexual intercourse adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc. sexual intercourse with close relatives; Lev. 18 sexual intercourse with a divorced man or woman; Mk. 10:11,12
.

Even women will go on a sexual conquest.

Genesis 39:6-7 (NKJV) “Now Joseph was handsome in form and appearance. And it came to pass after these things that his master’s wife cast longing eyes on Joseph, and she said, “Lie with me.”

So James 1:14-15 comes into place if one yields.

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.”

How to solve the abortion, the murder of babies?

1 Corinthians 7:1-2 (NKJV) “Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.”

Plain and simple.

Pastors that fail to teach the commandments of the Lord are irresponsible, negligent, and derelict in being stewards of the truth.

Today, we’re finding out which side people are on.

The End Of Roe v Wade? Not So Fast.

What does it really mean?

Well don’t get giddy about it. Some will, but this ruling only sets it right that the Constitution has no amendment in text, or history to establish the killing of babies as legal.

Man may try to make it legal but it isn’t moral. Murder is immoral.

Adultery and fornication is immoral.

But one day, all murdering the image of God will end.

Baby sacrifice to Molech is still operative in the states.

Oklahoma recently abolished abortion outright. Some states had laws against abortion ready in the event Roe is overturned.

While abortion is on the decline over the last few years, some states that are liberally controlled will continue this heinous practice.

The Democrats are enraged.

Even some Republicans, but will federal dollars continue to be funneled to Planned Murderhood?

Of course, there’s other abortion providers, we know that.

You know they’ve already searched for a way to use federal dollars to give to abortion providers.

Like Covid money.

Never underestimate wickedness.

Or like asking businesses, corporations, charities and other to fund it with some kind of tax write offs, incentives, or breaks, off shore accounts, or other means.

The mind of an evil person knows no bounds.

RU486, and other contraceptive means and methods will continue.

But the ruling showed that the Justices overturned precedent.

Justice Alito’s leaked draft majority opinion did us a favor.

They majority justices recognized that the 14th Amendment was hijacked.

The original intent of the 14th Amendment afforded Blacks to have equal protection under the law.

In fact, the 13th, 14th, & 15th Amendments we’re passed overwhelmingly by Republicans and overwhelmingly rejected by Democrats.

We shouldn’t be surprised but some are.

The continuation of allowing the murder of innocent babies based on a phantom precedent was destroyed.

The only thing that held up Roe was precedent, not Constitutional text, or history and a willingness to look the other way.

There can be no precedent when it involves the murder of babies to continue.

Then there’s the firebombing of Pregnancy Crisis Centers. While the DOJ never prosecute these crimes of arson, is complicit in protecting murder.

Facilities that help women get through the shame of adultery and fornication and consider options other than murder.

Providing options to keep the child or put the child up for adoption is a far better option.

These are secondary means that ought to be extended to pregnant women as opposed to killing a child.

It’s preferred that one biological male and one biological female get married, and plan accordingly to have children.

Now it’s expected that the Democrats won’t take this lying down.

The devils are stirring.

Hint hint.

When it’s silent, someone’s planning.

1973 to 2022. 49 years.

66 million innocent babies.

Their blood will be avenged.

It’s almost a jubilee.

What will change?

Will God be pleased?

As I’ve said, states will still murder babies. States that allow abortion up to a certain point is still murder by compromise and placating the murderers.

Pro lifers that compromised, continue to assume that lives are being saved.

God is absolute and His rule stands. No murder.

Pro lifers, some of them, are completely delusional.

They’re complicit in peace meal politics to claim that something’s being done like passing gun laws but Chicago is still shooting people. No criminal obey laws.

Don’t expect the federal government to abide by the ruling.

This marks the 2nd disappointing ruling for the Biden administration.

The justices, under unlawful threats of violence, held true to their Constitutional duties.

Homosexual marriage, hijacking the 14th Amendment like Roe to establish a distinct class of people, may be next. Maybe not. We’ll see.

So how will abortion end?

When every person obey “You shall not murder.”

Exodus 20:13 is still in force.

Genesis 9:6-7

“Whoever sheds man’s blood,

By man his blood shall be shed;

For in the image of God

He made man.

And as for you, be fruitful and multiply;

Bring forth abundantly in the earth

And multiply in it.”

God commanded man to multiply, not subtract.

When murder takes place, it’s all about killing the image of God.

But one day, abortion will end.

One day, the killing will stop.

When?

When Death and Hell is cast into the lake of fire.

When satan and his angels is cast into the lake of fire.

When sinners that murder is judged and cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:3-4

“And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.

God Himself will be with them and be their God.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Come! Lord Jesus come!

And the Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come!’

We long for and hasten that day.

Are Your Eyes Closed Shut?

Matthew 13:13-17 (NKJV) “Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:
‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.’
But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”

The spiritual leadership of the Lord Jesus’ day had a difficult time hearing the plain words from the Lord. So He shifted into parables. Hidden within these parables is the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

I love it when the disciples asked the Lord for the meaning of these parables because they didn’t want to miss the meaning. The Lord was willing to answer their questions which makes it even more profound.

Why?

Because it’s for our benefit too.

We get the meaning, which is intentional. The Lord knew all things and that the disciples would ask these questions. So we thank God that they’ve asked.

In the text we see that the spiritual leaders were blind to truth, but the Lord said something remarkable.

Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.’

The Lord quoted from the prophet Isaiah…..

Isaiah 6:9-10 (NKJV) And He said, “Go, and tell this people:
‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
“Make the heart of this people dull,
And their ears heavy,
And shut their eyes;
Lest they see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart,
And return and be healed.”

As an additional reference in my Bible margin, these Scriptures underscored what was happening as they were in their blindness.

Zechariah 7:11-12 (NKJV) “But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the LORD of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the LORD of hosts.”

Psalms 119:70 (NKJV) “Their heart is as fat as grease, but I delight in Your law.”

So it is with this generation of believers. Few understand that the events of 2020 put this and other nations on an end time footing.

As I was walking among people, it is that they’re completely oblivious to the times that we’re living in. Never before have we’ve seen the level of lawlessness from law makers. And this shouldn’t be a surprise to us. Because when you have people that are of the world, it’s their nature.

John 8:44 underscores the two things that’s prevalent in all of satan’s children of disobedience.

Lying and murder.

Let me point something out.

When you’re in sin, you’re blind. When you confess and forsake sin, you can see.

The sequence of the end times was a complicated mystery to me until sin was removed from my life by the Lord in repentance from dead works. Now, I, by the help of the Holy Spirit have a fundamental basic comprehension of the end times.

Many have shrugged their shoulders at the conditions around them.

Many in non denominational churches have returned to what was preached in the old days regarding tongues, authority, gifts of the Spirit, healing, prosperity, purpose, dreams, visions, and destiny.

Not realizing that these things were blinding me and the people.

Churches, such as the Episcopalians, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Baptist, Southern Baptists, and other mainline Protestant churches are currently infighting about abortion, homosexuality, CRT, women preachers and pastors, and other issues.

Many pastors, elders, ministers, music ministers, praise and worship singers, and deacons, are caught in the web of adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, pornography and masturbation.

Members of these main stream evangelical churches have departed to find fellowship with main stream believers centered around basic orthodox or liturgical Christianity. With an emphasis on strict adherence to the Word of God. Others, have started their own houses of worship, escaping these denominations from having to deal with the inclusion war.

As far as this is concerned, it’s healthy.

Why?

Ephesians 5:8-14 (NKJV) “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

Matthew 10:34-39 (NKJV) “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’

He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

But didn’t the Lord pray that we would be one from His High Priestly prayer in John 17?

But didn’t Paul said that we we’re to be of one mind and one spirit?

Didn’t Paul said that we’re to come to the unity of the faith?

No doubt.

But you and I aren’t allowed to bring in a mixture that’s unacceptable to the Lord.

Sin is NEVER acceptable to the Lord.

When the true house of worship understands that righteousness distinguishes us from darkness, any association with darkness is blindness.

Pastor’s & Pornography. Why Am I Addicted?

It’s the secret sin that most male pastors are ashamed of, but it’s done because no one knows. Or so you thought.

Sexual immorality, especially with porn, is without question the stronghold of strongholds. 

What’s the driving factor?

Lust in the heart. The desire to look at someone with lust.

The Lord Jesus revealed why men commit adultery.

Matthew 5:27-28 (NKJV) “You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

The word “lust” from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words mean…..g1937. ἐπιθυμέω epithymeō; from 1909 and 2372; to set the heart upon, i.e. long for (rightfully or otherwise): — covet, desire, would fain, lust (after).

To set the heart upon, to long for. 

It takes less than a second for a man or woman to set their eyes on someone that they see. 

The sexual attraction is so strong that if we’re not careful, looking to admire quickly deepens into look with the intent to lust, to set your heart upon the object. 

To long to have him or her sexually.

2 Samuel 11:1-5 (NKJV) “It happened in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. 

But David remained at Jerusalem. 

Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. 

And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold. 

So David sent and inquired about the woman. 

And someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” 

Then David sent messengers, and took her; and she came to him, and he lay with her, for she was cleansed from her impurity; and she returned to her house. 

And the woman conceived; so she sent and told David, and said, “I am with child.”

So what really happened?

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.”

David did one thing. He stayed in Jerusalem. There’s a convincing reason that David stayed in Jerusalem. 

Is it possible that David saw her and wanted to see her again? Only this time, to fulfill his lusts?

Is it possible that he knew that Bathsheba would be there? Is it possible that his timing was so perfect, that he knew? He had a bird’s eye view of where she would be.

Now Uriah was doing battle. How convenient. 

At this point, David had five wives. 

Proverbs 27:20 (NKJV)  “Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

David had lust in his heart. He set his heart upon the body of Bathsheba. He longed for the body of Bathsheba. He coveted Bathsheba’s body. 

Long story short, David did exactly what the Lord Jesus said not to do.

“…But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

David committed adultery with her in his heart and set his possible preconceived plan in motion. Lust in his heart overwhelmed him. He slew Goliath, but lust in David’s heart was stronger than Goliath.

Here’s the reason.

According to Dr. Struthers, porn hijacks the brain. 

Looking at women to lust after them hijacks the brain. When the man allows himself to be completely obsessed with lust, it’s for the purpose of self gratification.

The sexual “juices flow” where you must fulfill that lust in orgasmic pleasure. Where there is no fulfillment in orgasm, the lust is unfulfilled. 

Within the confines of marriage, there’s no lust. Within the confines of marriage, orgasmic pleasure was designed by God, and commanded to be done in marriage. 

Sex in marriage between one biological male one biological female is perfectly legal.

It’s when you have shifted your eyes in lust that sin is committed.

The conscience is pricked, but a man and woman knows how to suppress the conviction of sin. 

Lust took David to a place where it cost him more that he’s willing to pay. Took him further than he’s willing to go. 

Three sins were committed.

  1. Lust.
  2. Murder.

Exodus 20:13-14 (NKJV) “You shall not murder. “You shall not commit adultery.

3. You shall not covet.

Exodus 20:17 (NKJV) “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Then the news.

Bathsheba was pregnant with David’s child. David thought about Uriah. If he could get Uriah to have sex with his wife, then all is covered. But Uriah was so loyal to David that he refused to even go home. 

That didn’t work out so well for David.

Then David put Uriah on the frontline of the hottest battle where he knew Uriah couldn’t stay alive. The servant broke the news that Uriah died in battle. David thought he would be home free. He took Bathsheba in and all is covered.

Deep down, you kinda knew that God saw this before the world began.

It took Nathan the prophet to uncover the plot.

Psalm 51 is the “Adulterer’s Psalm.”

The addiction comes out of lust. 

2 Samuel 12:9 (NKJV) “Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight?”

To sin against God is to despise the commandment of the Lord.

To despise means to de-esteem, to ignore, regard with contempt.

A man after God’s own heart, ignored the commandment of the Lord in his heart.

David paid for his sin. 

2 Samuel 12:11-15 (NKJV) “Thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. 

For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.'”

So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”

And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die. However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.” Then Nathan departed to his house.

Did it take all that for David to recognized that he had sinned against the Lord?

Yes. The self delusion was that deep.

Pastor. If you don’t catch yourself, it’s just a matter of time.

As a deflective argument, people will accuse God of killing a child because David was the one that sinned against God. Why take it out on the child? 

God is God. He does as it pleases Him. 

But look at what happened.

The enemies heard that God was with David and David blew his testimony. 

The enemies can now say that David and Israel isn’t as righteous as they claim to be. 

Doesn’t this sound like today when a pastor commits adultery? The world brings a serious accusation against God and His people. Everyone is blamed. And then when we try to share the gospel to them, they reject it because we’ve disdained the very commandment that we claim to live by.

Plus, the child would have been viewed as an endorsement for such behavior.

Was Bathsheba raped? Did she resist? Did she fight off David and his men? Did she cry in the streets that what David had done was wrong? Because David is the king, could it be that she willingly submitted to the king to avoid making a scene? Or because she may not have known the law that both the male and female committing adultery are to be put to death?

Leviticus 20:10 (NKJV) “The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”

It would be understandable if some of the women that had sexual immorality with these men also be exposed. Sadly, women are taken against their will. Deceived by men claiming to be of God. Then there’s women that will use it to their advantage and sue the sinning pastors for child support.

The Word is clear that pornography is lust. So why are you addicted?

Uncontrolled lust in the heart. Lust must be crucified and it was crucified on the cross when God laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Then we have to choose to crucify the lust in our heart. Paul said…….

Colossians 3:5-7 (NKJV) “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.”

Romans 6:12-14 (NKJV) “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

Stop allowing porn to run your life. Do not let lust in your heart have dominion over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.

Woke. Doctrine Of Devils & Seducing Spirits.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NKJV) “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron…”

Notice the word “expressly.” From Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words, g4490. ῥητῶς rhētōs; adverb from a derivative of 4483; out-spokenly, i.e. distinctly: — expressly.

To be out spoken means to distinctively, or stand out above others. The Spirit of God is out spoken about what’s to come in the latter times. In other words, this is of great importance and emphasis that this is to be said. I want you to pay attention about this because it’s important.

Then Paul proceeds to show us when the Holy Spirit wants us to pay attention.

The latter times. Or in the last of the last days.

Some will depart from the faith. In other words, people that were once saved, will depart from the faith. They will make for the exits. They will turn their backs on God and walk out on Him and His Word.

The United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Lutheran Church, the Baptist Church, the Episcopalian Church, and non denominational Word of Faith ministries are all experiencing people departing from the faith.

A departure from the faith isn’t just about a decline in church attendance.

Although when people leave, it’s foundation is people living in sin, disagreement with people and pastoral leadership, discord among the brethren, and frivolous excuses, as well as excuses over petty things.

It’s about bringing in sin into the house of worship and demanding that the church accept their darkened understanding of the Scriptures into their denominational doctrines.

This leads us to the next phrase.

“…giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.”

To give heed means to………. from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words…..g4337. προσέχω prosechō; from 4314 and 2192; (figuratively) to hold the mind (h3563 implied) towards, i.e. pay attention to, be cautious about, apply oneself to, adhere to: — (give) attendance,

To hold the mind. In other words, you give attention or are paying attention to what demons and devils are telling you.

But this is how it’s done.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV) “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

These teachers come with doctrines of demons and seducing spirits. Convinced that these teachers are giving what the people want to hear, they turn their ears away from the truth and turn themselves to fables (myths), which are doctrines of devils and seducing spirits.

This is the second step because the first step is that “according to their own desires, they have itching ears…”

It other words, they have an itching desire to hear alternative teaching that appeases their hearts and minds. Doesn’t this sound like Genesis 3:1-4? Just like when there’s an itch that you have to scratch.

The word itch……..well, glad you’ve asked.

g2833. κνήθω knēthō; from a primary κνάω knaō (to scrape); to scratch, i.e. (by implication) to tickle: — x itching.
AV (authorized version) (1) – have itching 1; to scratch, tickle, make to itch
, to itch, desirous of hearing something pleasant.”

Up to this time, all Eve heard what the commandment of the Lord. It wasn’t pleasant to her. It was a permissive and prohibitive commandment with an incentive to keep within the boundaries.

Of every tree of the garden (permissive), you may freely eat, but the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall NOT (prohibited) eat of it, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die (incentive not to touch it).

satan brought in alternative teaching and deceived Eve who had a desire for alternative teaching because her ultimate desire is to eat that which was prohibited. The “tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”

Look at what was the basis of her desire.

Genesis 3:4-6 (NKJV) “Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Be like God…..hummmm….

Isaiah 14:14
“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’”

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

Eve had to be assured that there would be no penalty if she ate of the tree. Convinced of the devil’s word, she proceeded. In her mind, she saw that it was good for food, it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise…..

Wise about what?

Wise about “the knowledge of good and evil.

You can have the best of both worlds. Good and evil. She had no knowledge of evil. She had knowledge of only what was good. How? Up till that point, every thing that she experienced was good.

A garden full of food. A man. Everything is perfect. What’s not good about these three things in her mind.

She wanted to see what “evil” is about because she hadn’t experienced evil.

The evil just wasn’t in the fruit. It was in the act of disobedience. The moment you eat, you’ve violated what God commanded. When you obey, evil stays. When you disobey, evil comes. But it comes with a penalty.

Death.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

So. Now that we’ve established the origin of when we depart from the faith, it’s because when we have a desire for alternative teaching, the ear is tickled, scratch, or itches, we hear seducing spirits and doctrine of devils. We give heed to it. Pay attention to it, and we make a decision to depart from the faith.

The faith is the true commandments of the Lord, that in obedience, it keeps us alive.

Does this make sense?

The departing of the faith in the latter times is happening. In the denominational churches mentioned above, there’a a fight to include homosexuals. Remember, sexual immorality is against the Scriptures.

Adultery and fornication has been a part of many houses of worship. Homosexuality was there, but it was hidden ion the closet. Now that the world militantly came out of obscurity, they want the church to accept them as part of the faith.

In many of these denominations, church teaching, in the form or what’s called catechisms or summary of questions and answers of the Christian faith, or examinations or statements of faith have been challenged.

Woke.

From the Urban Dictionary……it means “spiritual and intellectual enlightenment, like waking up from a deep sleep, seeing things clearly for the first time.

But is it what it really is or is it a continuation of keeping people blind according to 2 Corinthians 4:4?

Are you spiritually and intellectually enlightened or are you spiritually in the dark?

Racism is hatred and hatred comes from the devil. The agenda of homosexuality, to make perversion normal comes from the devil. Defund the police, prison reform, releasing convicted practitioners of crime, no longer punishing criminals of every color comes from the devil. Blaming White people for being White is of the devil.

This isn’t “woke.”

This is doctrines of devils and seducing spirits promulgated in the latter times.

End Times Contractions

Romans 8:18-22 (NKJV) “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly,

but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”

You see, the revealing of the sons of God will happen.

When?

1 John 3:1-3 (NKJV) “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”

There was, in my opinion, erroneous teaching that the earth will see the manifestation of the sons of God NOW. And this was clearly erroneous teaching. We that are born again are already here on the earth.

So why doesn’t the world see “the manifestation of the sons of God” now?

Why is it that they’re not fully convinced of what they’re supposed to see in us?

The answer is simple.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NKJV) “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

You see. The manifestation of the sons of God is just what John spoke of in his general epistle.

‘…but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

So when will the Lord Jesus be revealed?

The word revealed is, from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words, “…g5319. φανερόω phaneroō; from 5318; to render apparent (literally or figuratively): — appear, manifestly declare, (make) manifest (forth), shew (self).

So when He appears, that’s when we’ll show up as He is.

Revelation 19:11-16 (NKJV) “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.

And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

But before this event takes place, this must happen.

Remember when Paul said this?

1 Corinthians 15:50-55 (NKJV) “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep,

but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”

Look at this concurring Scripture….

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 (NKJV) “But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,

even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

These two events must happen before the Lord return with his true believers.

Look at what Jude wrote about what Enoch prophesied. Remember, Enoch was taken by the Lord into heaven (see Genesis 5:18-26 and Hebrews 11:5-6).

Jude 1:14-15 (NKJV) “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

This concurs with Revelation 19:11-16.

But the rapture must occur before then.

Many of us believe that the rapture of the true believers on earth will be the precursor event that signals the beginning of the last week of Daniel’s 70th week prophesy. It’s also called the Day of the Lord. It’s the date set by the Lord that will signal the complete end of sin (see Daniel chapter 9).

The reason why we will be returning with the Lord is that Jerusalem will be surrounded and this battle will be for the purpose of rescuing the Jews from total annihilation of the beast. Then Christ will reign for 1000 years. Then the battle of Gog and Magog (see Revelation chapter 20).

What we’ve been seeing is serious contractions.

Contractions is energy or force to push a baby out.

Like MOST contractions, it starts off with small signals, and over time, it increases with intensity until the birthing is complete. Over the last 2 thousand years, there’s been a series of contractions.

The Lord Jesus told us in the book of Matthew of a series of contractions.

Great Famines, Earthquakes, and Pestilences.

Part of these contractions is the epidemic of false prophets.

Part of these contractions will be economic.

Each time that there’s been a combination of these things, there’s been a considerable amount of increased contractions. Like waves hitting the shore.

For instance. Hurricanes that start off the shores of Africa and cross the Atlantic, the waves increase with intensity until the eye of the storm hits the predicted area.

The storm of the end times is just like this. This is just another way of putting it.

Contractions can’t be denied. The baby is coming. But remember. It takes 9 months for the fullness to be achieved. For years, I and many others have been watching the contractions.

I’ve prematurely said some things and I had to retract them. It took a while to learn how to watch and wait. The events that we’re seeing today is a contraction.

The key to understanding the events is to keep watching 3 things.

  1. The economic conditions of the world.
  2. The Middle East.
  3. The apostasy of the church.

When you see a systemwide economic collapse, it’s a possible precursor to control everyone’s ability to buy and sell.

HINT HINT…..masks, vaccines, stay home……get the mark of the beast worship his image or you won’t be able to buy or sell (see Revelation 13).

With the Middle East, Israel is the key player in the region.

When you see many that once believed in Christ defect, it’s clear that something is about to happen.

Because when you see the Dome of the Rock take a serious hit. When you see the 3rd Temple built on the Temple Mount, there should be no question that the end times contraction is reaching its final stage.

The contractions that we’re experiencing now, in my opinion, is a serious contraction that began at the beginning of 2020. Remember, the nations shut down. The economy shut down. Houses of worship shut down. It was called the beginning of the great reset.

It appeared to have achieved some, not all of its goals.

So keep watching, keep praying, and stay in Christ.
