People Need the Lord Jesus Christ
by David J. Stewart | July 2016
Titus 3:3-4, “For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, HATEFUL, AND HATING ONE ANOTHER. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared.”
Timothy 3:1-2a, “This know also, that in the last days
perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves...”
What do you see in the above picture? Do you see a bunch of rebellious college student punks getting what they deserve? Or do you see thug pig cops abusing their authority as police officers? What I choose to see as a Christian (and I hope you will see also), are a bunch of people who need the Lord Jesus Christ! Galatians 3:22, “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”
There are literally millions of cases of police abuse each year just in the United States alone. Most of the abuse is not reported, for numerous reasons; such as, fear and intimidation, indifference by the community, corrupt authorities, there is no legitimate process by which to seek remedy, illegal immigrants are afraid of getting into trouble, et cetera. Police kill/murder approximately 1,200 citizens in the U.S. each year. Without debate, there is much abuse. I have examined many of the stories, and oftentimes the truth is skewed, distorted and is inaccurately reported. Both the police and the public play unfair. Inside Chicago's epidemic of police lying: One man's case shows why Windy City's cops are rarely held accountable. The honest observer, if you've kept up with the plethora of police abuse stories nationwide, must conclude that people are people are people! And all people are woeful SINNERS!!!
THE TRUTH is that our American society has morally deteriorated to the point that now homosexuals are getting married. The ungodly U.S. Supreme court ruled in 1973 that a child growing in its mother's womb is not a human being, so it is legal and acceptable to murder it! But God commands humanity in Exodus 20:13, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL”! God hasn't changed. Malachi 3:6a, “For I am the LORD, I change not.” Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Men are continually changing, unstable and predictably unpredictable. I am just as sinful as the next guy, and so are you. The Apostle Paul was a biological Jew, and a natural born citizen of Rome. Despite being recognized historically as “God's people,” Paul affirms that Jews are just as wicked as Gentiles. Romans 3:9-11, “What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.”
The Word of God lists, “THE WORKS OF THE FLESH,” which are typical behavior traits for the unsaved (and also carnal believers who walk in the flesh): Galatians 5:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Many Bible students misinterpret this passage of Scripture, concluding that without works a person cannot go to heaven; but that is not what this passage means. James 2:10 teaches that committing even one sin makes a person guilty of all. We are all hell-deserving sinners!
There is only one sin that can keep a person out of Heaven, and that sin is UNBELIEF!!! This truth is confirmed in 1st Corinthians 6:11, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” It is Jesus' precious blood that washes our sins away and makes us clean (righteous) in God's eyes, NOTHING ELSE!!! This comes only by faith in the Gospel—Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
Some sincere religious people (e.g., Evangelist's Paul Washer and Ray Comfort) have a problem with the idea that a genuine child of God can continue living in intentional sin, but it is Scripturally possible. We see this evidenced by numerous Bible characters (Lot, Samson, Solomon, David, Peter, Demas). These saved men all choose to live in sin. Abiding in sin is unacceptable to the Lord, but discipleship has nothing to do with salvation. Eternal life is a free gift, not conditioned upon discipleship. Receiving God's gift of forgiveness of sins is no different than receiving a birthday gift or a Christmas present. You simply take it!
It is possible to be saved, but choose not to walk in the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:25, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Notice the difference between the two parts of the statement. You can live in the Holy Spirit (i.e., the Holy Spirit lives in you), but not walk in the Holy Spirit (i.e., not yield to Him in obedience to the Bible). A sinner is born-again the moment they believe the Gospel, receiving Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for their sins, believing that He raised up from the dead the third day. A person is saved and indwelt with God's Holy Spirit, the second they receive Christ. Literally, God comes to live inside the believer's body (1st Corinthians 3:16-17). The Bible calls the believer's body a “tabernacle” in 2nd Corinthians 5:1, “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle (our fleshly body) were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” The spirit and soul live inside the body.
Faith in God is Related to Fear of God
God's Word and prayer have been legally banned from America's classrooms since 1963. In October, 2012, Walt Tutka of New Jersey was working as a substitute teacher, when he gave a Bible to a student and was consequently fired. In 2014, an Ohio school teacher, John Freshwater, was fired for sharing his Christian beliefs with students. In 2007, Kris Helphinstine of Oregon was fired as a school teacher for teaching the truth about the undeniable connection between Planned Parenthood, Hitler and the bogus theories of Evolution. There are thousands of such stories each year across America, evidencing how Americans are increasingly becoming hostile toward God, the truth, Christianity and the Holy Bible.
2nd Thessalonians 3:1-2, “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men:
...for all men have not faith.”
All men have not faith!!! It is a lack of faith in God that makes people unreasonable and wicked. It is lack of faith in God that makes people lovers of themselves instead of God. This is why times are perilous today! Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” These are perilous times friend, as you fully know from hearing the daily news. Our nation has become a giant insane asylum, forcing transgendered restrooms on everyone! Hardly anyone gets upset, shocked or morally outraged anymore over anything. This is the adverse result of decades of our ever-declining moral atmosphere in America.
You must understand that all of our nation's leaders, authorities and decision makers are still Americans, having grown up in the same deteriorating moral culture as everyone else. How can we criticize our nation's leaders when we are no better? An ungodly people deserve the ungodly leaders they get! Sure the police are out of control in our nation, and many of them should be fired, and others imprisoned; but look how degenerate the public has become, showing no respect for God nor man. The police are just as bad as the public! The police in all actuality are the public! They're just on the other side of the fence.
Also, America's churches are tied into our degenerate culture. As women decline in standards of modesty, so also do the Bible colleges and churches follow in pursuit. As men are no longer men in our nation, so also do police departments across our country lack men! Unquestionably, this is why women are becoming police, judges and politicians, ruling over men. Isaiah 3:12, “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” Notice that when women govern, they cause society to err. The word “paths” comes from the Hebrew word orach and means “a well trodden road.”
It was obvious to the psalmist that people who committed wickedness did not fear God. We see the same thing today. Abortionists have no fear of God. For if they did, they could never murder a child. Psalms 36:1, “The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.” The extremes of rape and incest compromise less than .001% of all pregnancies; yet wicked people use these lame excuses to justify murder. ABORTION IS MURDER!
Same-sex unions are perversion. It is impossible for homosexuals to get married. The ungodly U.S. government may hand them a piece of paper (license) that declares them married, but without having male and female genitalia, there can be no marriage! Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Anything can be justified if people stoop low enough to do so. People do it every day, justifying their stealing, fraud, adultery, gossip, slander and hatred. Thankfully, God will be every person's final and only Judge. James 4:12, “There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” James 5:9, “Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.” God will be our Judge the moment that we die and enter into eternity. Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” We all “have to do” with God when we die. Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Faith is obedience to the Words of God (Hebrews 11:1). Mark 11:22, “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.” We learn in Hebrews chapter 11 about many heroes of the Christian faith. Hebrews 11 is often properly called “The Hall of Faith” (instead of “The Hall of Fame”). By faith Noah moved with fear. Notice the relation between faith and fear! Lack of faith always results in fear of men, fear of circumstances, fear of loneliness, fear of poverty, fear of homelessness, et cetera; but faith in God always results in fear of God. I don't mean mere reverence or respect, I mean literal fear of God's wrath (2nd Corinthians 5:11; Psalms 6:1; Hebrews 10:31). Hebrews 11:7, “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” By faith in God, Noah moved with fear at the commandments of God.
And may I say, by faith citizens obey the law. By faith, police respect others and don't overstep their delegated powers. If police feared God, they would treat their neighbours as they want to be treated. This is “The Golden Rule” (Matthew 7:12). Our nation's second U.S. President, John Adams, admonished the American people the U.S. Constitution was only intended for a society restrained by morality and religious beliefs...
“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —Second U.S. President, John Adams (1735-1826)
The Bill Of Rights and U.S. Constitution only outline our God-given rights. If we disobey God, then we forfeit our right to liberty and freedom. Liberty is a gift from God, the privilege to make our own decisions. Freedom is the reward for making the right decisions.
Rights Are Granted By God, Earned On The Battlefield, And Kept By Fighting To Keep Them! We have been making all the wrong decisions (i.e., banning the Bible and prayer in schools, legalizing abortion, legalizing pornography, legalizing same-sex marriage, no fault divorce, et cetera) for so long, that we are LOSING our freedoms and liberties. Why should God bless America? We murder our children in the womb. Now in 2016 children and Christians are being forced to use transgendered restrooms. As of June 26, 2015 same-sex perversion is legal in all 50 states. (In 1962 homosexuality was a punishable crime in all 50 states!) God hasn't changed, our wicked nation has! America will become a Godless communist totalitarian police state over the next 25-years. I assure you of that!!!
President John Adams saw the handwriting on the wall centuries ago. We've been hearing a lot in the newsmedia in recent years about the inadequacy of the U.S. Constitution for these changing times. It is true, because no agreement, constitution or manuscript mankind could ever put together could govern a wicked, out of control, thankless, naked, amoral, adulterous, arrogant, people!!!
A Nation in Dire Trouble Without Faith in God
Americans have lost their fear of God. No doubt this is why all Hollywood movies take the Lord's name in vain, showing utter contempt and disregard for the God of Heaven, earth and the universe!!! American society is turning further away from God each day! The consequences have been devastating! Faith in God is synonymous with freedom, liberty and God's blessings. Television incrementally becomes worse and worse. Music keeps becoming more degenerate—using foul street language, vulgarity and contempt for all authority. Our entire nation is becoming one giant crime slum. Fear of being a victim of crime is epidemic across the United States. The CIA has admitted to drug-trafficking into the U.S., which has destroyed millions of lives. The U.S. prison system is a lucrative crooked business, kept packed to capacity by the drug industry.
Prisons And Profits (things they don't want you to know). The Caging Of America. The Corrections Corporation of America is Evil. Truly, morality cannot be legislated.
The Luciferians behind the subversion of America are sandwiching Americans between top and bottom. They traffic the drugs into the country, and then pass laws maximizing prison sentences for citizens convicted of drug crimes. We've become so accustomed to wickedness and perversion in America that parents are no longer phased, angered or determined to do something about it. Here's a classic example of what I'm talking about—Taylor Swift committing abominable promiscuous acts on camera in her music videos, which is leading our teens into sexual perversion, lasciviousness and premarital sex. This leads to unwanted pregnancies out of wedlock, abortion, a life of fornication, fewer people getting married, cohabitation, sexually transmitted venereal diseases, et cetera. There i absolutely no way that Taylor Swift's shameful behavior can be excused or justified. The not so obvious truth behind such filthy music videos (which has been going on in the music industry for the past 50 years), is that Luciferians are promoting satanism through the music industry. Read the preceding article about Taylor Swift to learn the ugly truth.
The holy Scriptures foretold that in the last days, “perilous times” would come. The Bible tells us exactly why these times will be “PERILOUS,” that is, because PEOPLE WILL BECOME PERILOUS! The Bible says that people will become “LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES.” ...
2nd Timothy 3:1-5, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
Instead of loving God and obeying Him, people will become their own God. Philippians 3:19, “Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” Even Christian believers who get away from the Lord can commit unthinkable sins. Proverbs 14:14, “The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.”
Philippians 2:15-16, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
TAYLOR SWIFT hypocritically professes to be some sort of Christian (2nd Timothy 3:5, “having a form of godliness but denying the power of the Gospel: from such turn away”). No one who loves God promotes sexual perversion to young people...
John 5:42, “But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.”
Love never seeks to hurt others. Taylor Swift's filthy music videos (look to the screenshot to the right from Miss Swift's video “WILDEST DREAMS”) are not helping today's youth, who are struggling with morals unbelievably. Every parent in America ought to be rebuking and denouncing Taylor Swift as a bad role model for youth and exposing her works of darkness.
The United States has become so wicked these days, that people are not longer shocked by the awfulness of sin. The photo to the right is shocking! The screenshot was taken from YouTube, by pressing the “PrintScreen” button on my keyboard. The picture only appear for ONE SECOND in the video. The VEVO video has already received 474,412,065 views! I won't link to it! Why aren't millions of Americans angry? Our youth are being brainwashed to behave this indecent way. This is not censored on YouTube! IT SHOULD BE!!! Folks, I don't need to go into detail what it looks like Taylor is doing in the photo. Is this what you want your teenagers doing? If not, then why allow them to listen to Taylor Swift's music and idolize her? Miss Swift is just one of thousands of pawns of Satan, who've sold their souls to do evil in the sight of the Lord. 1st Kings 21:20, “And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.” Taylor Swift is of the Devil!!!
Miss Swift does not fear God, nor does she know anything about the love of God...
1st John 4:16, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
Please notice our text passage of Scripture again at the beginning of this article, and then consider the next three verses which follow verses 3 and 4:
Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
That is precious! Unsaved people go from hating one another in the works of the flesh, to experiencing the kindness and love and mercy of God, being cleansed by the precious blood of Jesus! WHAT A SAVIOR!!!
So the next time you see or hear about police brutality in the news, or the public hating and shooting police—remember that they all need God's love, which can only come from having God's Holy Spirit in them, which can only come from being born-again by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus foretold that in the end times love would be hard to find, because of all the wickedness. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” These are the “perilous times” foretold of in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5, when people will love themselves instead of God and their neighbour. Matthew 22:37-40, “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Thus, we see a domino effect. When people love themselves instead of obeying God, then wickedness flourishes, and it spreads like cancer throughout society. This is what is happening in America today! People don't fear and love God today. Wickedness is everywhere. People don't love each other. All chaos is happening. People are confused. The churches are confused. Satan has crept hundreds of different Bible revisions into the churches. Most pastors are Ok with that, and need to be fired for theological incompetence! There is a longtime class-action lawsuit by Heaven against the Alexandrian Bible-corrupting crowd, and their day in court is coming! Every fundamentalist Christian who has been called a “cult,” shunned and mocked by neo-evangelicals for proclaiming the exclusivity of the King James Bible in today's English language will be held accountable! They will be held accountable by God for pulling on the same rope as the Devil, for using and promoting the satanic Bible revisions (aka, the offspring of the 1881 Westcott and Hort Greek translation). There will be blood on their hands—the blood of every person who was led astray from God's incorruptible Words by the Devil's counterfeit corruptible Bible revisions!!!
The Satanic System
We are now living in a 1984 dystopian world with a world religious movement to deliver it! Churches from every denomination are embracing and tolerating the homosexual agenda. Southern Baptist churches are beginning to ordain homosexuals and perform same-sex weddings. In March of 2015, a shocking 20,562 Presbyterian ministers in 10,083 churches embraced homosexuals and same-sex marriage.
The photo to the right shows an unknown man forgotten about behind bars. All over the world Satan's victims are suffering! From illegal organ harvesting, to starving families, to military brutality, human trafficking, to cruel and inhuman incarceration, Satan is “your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1st Peter 5:8). Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” 2nd Timothy 2:25-26, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”
Albert Pike (1809-1891) predicted three world wars. He predicated WWI and WWII accurately! This is because the Illuminati (the Luciferian elite behind the New World Order) planned this all out before the founding of America. In 1775, Adam Weishaupt (Illuminati founder) laid out his blueprint for World Government. A year later America was birthed in 1776, with the secret destiny of ushering in a New Order of the Ages. Yes, as difficult as it may be to wrap your brain around the idea, the United States was founded by occult Freemasons with the intent of furthering the ancient mystery religion and global domination by the Devil. This is not hard to grasp if you learn about the tower and city of Babel in Genesis 11:1-11. The Great Pyramid of Gaza in Egypt was deliberately left unfinished (missing the capstone), which signifies the unfinished New World Order that was foiled by God at Babel. Why did it take mankind 5,800 years to achieve the industrial revolutionary of the 18th and 19th centuries? The only reasonable answer is that God's sovereign plan wasn't ready yet. James 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Albert Pike, an occult leader in the secret society of Freemasonry, foretold in detail how World War III would unfold. He said the Arab nations and Israel would go to war, and the world would be drawn into the conflict. It is happening before our very eyes. Christians ought not take sides between Israel and the Arabs, but love them all with God's unconditional love. We are seeing and hearing much about Muslim terrorists and sleeper cells at work in the United States. This is all part of the Luciferian conspiracy to destroy all existing government and religions. Europe is under Muslim siege. France is gone. England is almost gone! The EU bureaucrats have allied with Islam! We're going to see a lot more terrorist attacks by Muslims in Europe and the United States. Hillary Clinton said (if elected as President) she wants to bring 1,0000,000 Muslim refugees into the U.S. her first year. They're bringing in military aged men. If elected, she'll bring in 5,000,000 Muslims!!! America is being overthrown!
Pervert sodomite sex is being forced on Americans, just like a mob of homosexuals in Genesis 19:1-11 tried to break Lot's down door and rape Heaven's angels! Transgenders and homosexuals are now openly welcomed into the military. It's wickedness! Russia is in full resistance to Globalism. Russians are banning GMO foods! They're paying people to have children! All Hades is breaking loose on the planet. We are seeing a war on western civilization!!! This is all leading into World War III and a New World Order, which will be the Beast system of the coming Antichrist. Yes, friend, we are now living in the Biblical end times. I'd say by 2050 we'll see WWIII (if not much sooner). If you don't believe it, learn about Daniel's prophecy. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Ecclesiastes 5:8, “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.” I love that Scripture! We see government corruption and crime regularly. We see reckless injustice in our U.S. courts, crooked judges and thug law enforcement regularly. GOD IS HIGHER THEM ALL OF THEM, AND THEY CANNOT ESCAPE GOD'S JUDGMENT!!! (Hebrews 4:13; 9:27; Ecclesiastes 12:14). As you read and watch the daily news (or as often as you observe it), please keep a Biblical perspective—EVERYONE NEEDS THE LORD!!! Thus, it ought to be abundantly clear how important it is for us to walk close to the Lord, abstain from all appearance of evil, pray without ceasing, have faith in God, and share the Gospel with others. People need the Lord Jesus Christ!
John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall make you free ...
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
