Dozens of Plums

Introduction: Here are dozens of plums the Lord Jesus gave to me that you may judge for your edification, exhortation and comfort. What ever is good and of God, I give him the glory and the thanks.

 

1. PRAY FOR A PROMOTION!

Which group are you in when it comes to being a Christian? The five hundred who saw the Lord after the resurrection? The seventy he sent out by twos? The twelve apostles? The three apostles who saw special miracles? Or are you like the disciple whom Jesus loved, laid his head upon his breast, and could listen to his heart beat? If you are not in the last group, pray for a promotion.

 

2. BUSINESS AS USUAL

The Lord Jesus cleansed the temple of thieves and merchants at the beginning and end of his ministry. (John 2:13-16 Matthew 21:12-13) And yet, they are all still in business today and continue to hawk their ministerial wares in the name of God.

 

3. STATE CHURCH

A State Church is one that conforms to a worldly kingdom, which is not the kingdom of God.

"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence." (John 18:36)

State Religion = State Church = 501(c)3

 

4. DIRTY WORK BY WIVES

When Adam sinned, he used his wife as the scapegoat, and some men do the same today. They say they can or can't do this, or their wife will or won't let them do that. Some even let their wives do their "dirty work," and some wives like to do it. Jezebel comes to mind.

 

5. CROSS, OBELISK & DOUBLE CROSS

The footnote called the dagger is a single cross and is also called an obelisk, which is another name for the image of the Egyptian sun god. The double dagger footnote is a double cross, as in something dishonest. Note when and where they are used in advertisements, contracts, etc.

 

6. SHALL VS. WILL

All nations shall hate you because you are a believer. It is a fact, and the operative word is "shall" in contrast to "will." (Matthew 24:9) Dictionary work may be required.

 

7. WRITE A BOOK

The apostle John wrote, "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen." (John 21:25) And seeing that some of the books of the Bible are very small - one less than 300 words - every believer should write a book about our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

8. REVELATION NOW

Did you know all the chapters of Revelation are for the here and now? Of course, they are. Start reading.

 

9. IN THE MIDST

When two or three are gathered together in the name of the Lord Jesus, there he is in the midst of them. If you do not have someone to gather with, gather with Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, or an Old Testament prophet like Isaiah.

 

10. THE RED LETTERS

Why do some Bibles have the words of Christ in red? Did you ever notice the red letters are not as sharp and crisp on white paper as black letters are? And let us remember red is the devil’s favorite color because he is red. (Revelation 12:3)

 

11. DEVIL'S HEADACHE

The devil and his bunch do not like to retain God in their minds -headache.

 

12. TONGUES

When those at Cornelius' house believed the gospel, they began to speak in tongues and magnify God. This was evidence to Peter and other believers that they were saved. If they had not manifested any signs, it would have been evidence that they were not saved.

"And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils they shall speak with new tongues They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17-18)

Message: Those Tongues People

 

13. A PICTURE OF GOING TO HELL

The crucifixion process is a picture of going to hell. Before one is nailed to the cross, they are tormented, tortured, and traumatized as those who lie awake in the grave awaiting judgment. At the cross, one is publicly stripped naked to expose their shame, as those whose sins are exposed at the Judgment. Then, one is nailed and immobilized on a cross in an upright position to roast in the sun, as those who are tormented in flames of outer darkness, dying of thirst, and erased from the mind of God forever.

 

14. PILATE SAID IT 3X

Jesus told Pilate, "Thou sayest I am King." (John 18:37)... And Pilot went on to say so twice, and had it written in three languages, too:

"But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?" (Mark 15:9)

"Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?" (John 18:38-39)

"And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. (John 19:19-20)

 

15. ROME

It has been said that all roads lead to Rome...all but the right one that is!

 

16. YE=SALT

Ye are the salt of the earth, and if the people of the world don't like the salt anymore, they will cast you out like trash - just like they did with the Lord Jesus. (Matthew 5:13)

 

17. THE DEVIL'S BOYS

The devil's boys are sometimes referred to as wolves. Interestingly, Romulus and Remus (the mythical founders of Rome) were raised by a she-wolf.

 

18. PERPETUATING ABORTIONS

Legal abortion is a self-perpetuating law. As more people have abortions, more of the voters cannot face the fact they have killed their own children.

 

19. CHURCH THEATER

Attending most church meetings is like going to the theater. You sit in an auditorium and receive a program of the cast of characters with an outline of the acts and scenes to be performed. On stage are religious props, spotlights for the actors, a sound system to amplify their lines, and, in some cases, ornate costumes. The audience is passed a basket or plate to pay for admission, but lifetime membership can be bought for a perpetual ten percent of one's income. Before the production begins, there are usually announcements, a warm-up act of singers or musicians, and after The End, the performers come out to solicit compliments.

 

20. 3 TYPES OF BACKSLIDERS

There are three backslidden conditions, and they can be likened to the three people Jesus Christ raised from the dead.

Jairus' young daughter was dead for a few minutes or hours. She is like the child who whimsically decides not to believe in Jesus Christ one day, but it is just for a short time.

The only son of a widow was being carted off to the bone yard. He is like the longtime apparent apostate, but when the Lord gets close enough for him to hear his voice on the way to hell, he comes back to spiritual life.

Lazarus was buried and decomposing. He is like an apostate for decades, and apparently, dies a hopeless case, but when the trump of God sounds, he will meet the Lord in the air like others that served him most of their life.

 

21. THE WHOLE BODY

What is one way we can love our fellow Christians? By praying for the whole body of Christ as the Lord taught: "Our Father, which art in heaven...." Notice it is "Our Father' - not "My Father."

 

22. HARD TO PICTURE

Many religious leaders wear women's clothing that looks like ballroom gowns, silly hats, and ballerina shoes. It's hard to picture them going grocery shopping - or to the bathroom.

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God." (Deuteronomy 22:5)

 

23. ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION

The abomination of desolation is sin standing, or happening, in a supposed holy place, or where it obviously ought not to be. Some abominations are homosexual ministers, homosexual marriages, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, the Darth Vader gargoyle on the National Cathedral, and any objects that are regarded with extravagant respect, honor, or devotion. It is also an abomination for political leaders to condone abortion (killing), and homosexual acts (fornication).

 

24. FEED A LOT

If you serve a little of the word of God, you can only feed a few. But if you serve a lot of the word of God, you can feed a lot more. In fact, as in the feeding of the multitudes, you can feed them all until they are stuffed, and have some leftovers for yourself.

 

25. THE ONE & ONLY NATION

The one and only nation ever under God was Israel, and they didn't practice that well.

 

26. FOR HIS OWN SINS

Jesus Christ was hung on a tree for the sins of the world, and Judas hung himself on a tree for his own sins. If Jesus Christ did not die for your sins, you will have to die for your own - forever.

 

27. CHEMICAL WARFARE

Chemical warfare has been going on for a long time:

American Indians were intentionally encouraged to drink liquor by their enemies which contributed to bad behavior. If the bad behavior went outside the tribe, the army could come and take them to jail, or to reservations (concentration camps), and steal their land.

Chinese ruling classes were flooded with opium by the British Empire (1839-1860) to cripple the function of their government because the Chinese had restricted British trade. It seems a lot more silver was going into China then going into Great Britain.

Military personnel have been intentionally exposed to nuclear bomb tests to track the effects of radiation.

The first recreational drug was alcohol. It compromised Noah's guard, helped Jacob and his mother deceive Isaac, and was in use when Satan dropped a house on Job's children.

 

28. SIGN OF THE CROSS

The cross was The Roman Empire's intimidating sign of terror to its enemies before and after the Lord Jesus was crucified, and is still used today in the same way. Wake up and smell the coffee. Also, the Roman Catholic Church uses the cross as its "imprimatur," or, Rome's approval of religious literature.

 

29. PREACHERS WHO DON'T TITHE

Many preachers who teach on tithing only tithe on their basic salary, and not on their other incomes such as parsonage or parsonage allowance, free utilities, telephones, internet, cable TV, house insurance, family health insurance, car allowance, vehicle insurance, bonuses, holiday and birthday gifts, paid vacations, continuing education tuition and books, and seminars including airfare, hotel, and restaurant reimbursements. Of course, if the preacher is meeting his lover at the seminar, the church doesn't pay for her - or him - because they are his secret.

 

30. PERSONALLY POSSESSED

Judas Iscariot is the only person known to have been personally possessed by Satan. Think on that one.

 

31. MAKEUP COVERUP

In Tamar's deception, she covered her face with a veil to conceal her identity and played the harlot. (Genesis 38:6-30) Some do the same with makeup.

"And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window." (II Kings 9:30)

"Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house. And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments, And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil." (Ezekiel 23:38-41)

"And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life." (Jeremiah 4:30)

"Rentest" above means: to tear, or divide, or accentuate the natural facial features with paint. Makeup changes the color of the skin, paints the lips, eyebrows, and eyelids with different colors. At one time, it was fashionable to add a brown dot to the check to simulate a mole called a "beauty mark." There is also tattooing of simulated eyebrows where the natural ones are shaved off. (Leviticus 19:28)

 

32. NO MEN MOTHERS

As there are no men mothers, there are no women teachers. (I Timothy 2:9-15)

 

33. OUT OF BUSINESS

The apostle John had a desire to worship someone who had spiritual insight but was stopped. (See Revelation 19:10) If the same principle were applied today, most popular teachers and preachers would be out of business.

 

34. CENSUS & TAXES

When baby Jesus was in the womb of his mother, Caesar's government taxed and took a census of the whole world. They could implement a world tax and census because they had conquered it. This happened when the ungodly aspirations of Babel had been realized, and now they are being realized again. During the first world census and taxation, the Lord came to save. The second time, however, he comes to judge:

"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." (Revelation 19:11-16)

 

35. DEVILS TODAY

Many think there are not devil possessed people in America. Of course, there are. Some are in prison, some are on medication that short circuits their brains, some are restrained in mental hospitals, and some are wearing three-piece suits and preach from behind a pulpit.

 

36. AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH

Maybe you ought to feel pretty much alone as a Christian if it is “as the days of Noah.” Noah and his immediate household were the only people they knew of that were saved.

 

37. GIVING THEIR BEST

When the lame man in Acts 3 asked for money from Peter and John, they gave as the Lord had taught, but they had no money to give. (Matthew 5:42) So, they gave the best they had - a miraculous healing in the name of Jesus Christ.

 

38. IS ANY SICK?

The elders in God's church are not the elders in the denominational churches. "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord..." (James 5:14) No wonder so many churches do not pray for the sick, for they know they are not going to get results.

 

39. DEVIL TACTICS

The Lord Jesus was tried in two secret courts in the middle of the night and  two public courtrooms the following day which was a holiday. The two courts held by the chief priests, Caiaphas and Annas, met in secret between midnight and 6 a.m. And that morning, which was "an high day," the Lord Jesus was judged by Pilot, then seen of Herod, and then of Pilot again. So, from about midnight to 9 a.m., Jesus was found guilty by the Jew's religious leaders of blasphemy, by the governor of treason, and nailed to the cross. This roused little public attention at the time as it was a major holiday. These deceptive tactics are still used today by the devil's boys.

 

40. 9/11

"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." (Psalm 127:1)

 

41. SADISTIC SWILL

You may have heard that the vinegar soaked hyssop lifted to the lips of the crucified Lord Jesus was an act of kindness. Of course, by that time, the Lord had been brutally beaten, nailed to a cross, and was dying. He, like many that are near death, still could thirst, and was offered vinegar as an act of sadism. Picture yourself dying of thirst, and someone offered you a cup of vinegar that you drank unknowingly. This was a part of the torture.

 

42. BEASTLY INFO

Did you ever notice that most paper money has a name, a number, an image, and a mark on it? And most coins have three of the four.

 

43. ON JANITORS

Being a janitor is thought to be a lowly job in the world, but not so according to the Psalmist: "I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness." (Psalm 84:10) Some of them are gatekeepers for the Word of God.

 

44. BAPTISM PRESCRIPTION

Today, baptisms are scheduled to be performed when they get the most attention. However, they are rarely done on the day one believes, as is prescribed in scripture. (Acts 2:37-41 Acts 8:26-40 Acts 16:25-34)

 

45. WORST CHARACTERISTICS

The Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians represent the worst of today's denominational characteristics

 

46. WHY CHARGE?

Here are instructions for Christians - and especially prophets, evangelist, and pastor and teachers:

"The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:7-8)

If you are to freely to give those heavenly gifts, why would you charge for what your gift freely produces?

 

47. TRINITY vs. INFINITY

Why do many teach that God is a Trinity rather than an Infinity?

 

48. STUFFED WITH TREASURES

Most people cannot pray secretly in their closets to receive treasures in heaven because it is stuffed with treasures on earth.

 

49. THE LIES & THE TRUTH

There are four stories told to children of which three are lies. The lies are about Santa Claus, the Good Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. The truth is about Jesus Christ. However, if the first three are not true, the children may think the fourth is a lie as well.

 

50. YOU ARE THE FLAG OF THE LORD

You are the flag of the Lord Jesus Christ! Every country in this world has a flag that I know of, but what is the flag of the kingdom of God? Study the scriptures below and see that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Word of God, is the living flag (ensign). As his ambassador, you are a copy of his flag as well.

"And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth." (Isaiah 11:10-12)

"And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land." (Zechariah 9:16)

 

51. FORNICATION DESTROYS

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of fornication. (Jude v.7) Fornication includes all sexual sin, whether homosexual, premarital or bestial.

 

52. DEVIL'S BOYS NOT INTERESTED

The devil's boys may be interested in religion, building a sanctuary, and doing good deeds, but they are not interested in the word of God. Jesus Christ said:

"Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me." (John 14:30)

And the consequence of having no interest in the word of God is:

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." (Romans 1:28-32)

 

53. WHAT TORMENTS DEVILS

The word of God torments devils as one revealed: "What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not." (Mark 5:7) Amen.

 

54. ROME'S INTIMIDATING SIGN

The Imprimatur (the cross and the Roman Catholic Church's seal of approval) is the same intimidating sign Rome used to warn its enemies of the consequences of violating its laws and religions - crucifixion. It is still used in this way today.

 

55. PRESIDENTS SERVE KINGS

In ancient Babylon, we can read about presidents, and Daniel was one of them. (Daniel 6:2) The presidents were not the chief rulers, for they served the king of the empire and were just the Executive Officers carrying out the orders of the Commanding Officer in the military. George Washington is said to be "the man who would not be king" and for good reason. His king was still George III of Great Britain and through The Revolutionary War, he proved to himself and to his king to be as worthy a gentleman and general as any homebred Englishman. Who are the kings of today's presidents?

 

56. WARRING AGAINST GOD

How can the devil war against God? Answer: By not doing what he says to do. How can a person war against God? Answer: Same way.

 

57. 666 WHERE?

Talking about 666, the Washington Monument, begun by the Masons, has four sides and is 6660 inches tall on each side, or 555 ft. x 12 inches. And in the United States Capital, the Capitol Dome Rotunda is 66 meters tall.

 

58. 555 = 666

When does 555 equal 666? Many in the occult use the peculiar number 5, because, when multiplied by 12, it expresses the number 6. For example: .05 x 12 = 6 5x12 = 60 55x12 = 660 55.5x12 = 666. Coincidentally - not - if you type a shifted 555, you come up with %%%, or six in zeros and a shifted 666 comes up with ^^^, or Roman Numerals 555 upside down. The devil, if he can only use one numeral, will try to use a 6 or if two numerals, a 66, as in the famous Route 66. The Apple I computer, for example, was first offered to the public for $666.66 by the company's founder, Steven Jobs.

 

59. NO ONE ELSE IS THE WAY

If Jesus Christ is the way, then no one else or nothing else is the way. Examples of not being the way: Luther, Knox, Calvin, Roman pontiffs, and church denominations.

 

60. BEASTLY PRIDE

The beast has great pride in his name, his number, his image, and his mark. That sounds like a lot of people you may know.

 

61. NOT TO BE HIRED

Pastors and teachers in the Body of Christ ought not to be hired to perform their duties because their office is a free gift of God. (Ephesians 4:8-16 John 10:10-13 I Corinthians 9:18)

 

62. SYNAGOGUE vs. CHURCH

The Jew's synagogue was the building they met in, and also the name of the congregation that met there. The Christian's church is only and always the congregation of believers, but never the name of a building.

 

63. NO KING BUT CAESAR

The religious leaders that conspired to have Christ executed by the state were the same ones that proclaimed they had no king but Caesar. They were very patriotic. (John 19:15)

 

64. RIGHT DIRECTIONS

People are to be directed to the word of God, but not to a church building or a denomination. Ask John B. (John 1:29)

 

65. HOW MANY PAGES?

How many pages in God's book of remembrance are taken up by you?

"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not." (Malachi 3:16-18)

 

66. 666 666 666 666

For those who know how to count apples and oranges:

The USA flag has 5 rows of 6 stars, and 6 white stripes. In other words, there are 6/6s on each side - for a total of 12/6s on two sides of the flag. The forty-eight state flag had a total of 18/6s though.

 

67. PAYING PLENTY

Everyone says they want to go to heaven, but they are paying their doctors plenty to keep them from going.

 

68. HOW TO REMOVE MOUNTAINS

A person who is being depressed, oppressed, or possessed by a devil has the weight of a mountain on them, and someone will need mountain moving faith to move it. This can only come about by prayer and fasting. Are you willing to pray and fast to have mountain moving faith to cast out devils? By the way, in many modern translations of the Bible, the fasting part, of praying and fasting, is omitted, for the devil doesn't want Christians to have mountain moving faith. For Comparisons: Matthew 17:21 Mark 9:29 I Corinthians 7:5.

 

69. TAXED BY CONQUERORS

When baby Jesus was in the womb of his mother, Caesar Augustus taxed and took a census of the whole world because he could, because he had conquered it. It will be this way in the end. But even today, most everyone is taxed by those who have conquered them.

 

70. BEASTLY NUMBER x 2

There are two times in the Old Testament that the number of the beast (666) is written the same as it is in the Book of Revelation in the 1611 Version: "Six hundred threescore and six." They are found in I Kings 10:14, and II Chronicles 9:13, and are in regards to an incidence of taxing. Another time 666 is used in the Old Testament but written differently, is in Ezra 2:13 in regards to a census:- "six hundred sixty and six." Some modern translations of the Bible do not write out the beast's number in words, and you can not make out the subtle differences mentioned above.

 

71. CUT TO THE HEART

Stephen's murderers were "cut to the heart" by his preaching. And the murderers, like soldiers in hand to hand combat, attacked him with the weapons that were immediately available - their teeth! "When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth." (Acts 7:54) You may have seen little children instinctively bite each other in anger, too.

 

72. HEALING SCRIPTURES

If the healing scriptures are only applicable to God's children, then those who are not the children of God must avail themselves of other means.

 

73. SERPENTS FOR LOGOS

Why do many medical professions use serpents in their logos?

 

74. 25 FISH PER FISHER

We may think that the first catch of 3000 at Pentecost was a large amount, but it only works out to about 25 fish per fisher. (120 upper room fishers.)

 

75. BRING THE FISH TO CHRIST

When Peter and the six other apostles went fishing (John Chapter 21), they brought the fish (the converts) to the Lord Jesus Christ (the Word of God), but they did not bring them to someone's church. The Lord fed the apostle's (provided their needs) for bringing the converts directly to him.

 

76. THE WORD CONTRASTED

"The Word of God" in contrast to "the word of God." In the Authorized Version of the Bible, "the word of God" is the Holy Scripture whereas, "The Word of God" is the God whose word it is.

 

77. IDOLS = DEVILS

One of Noah Webster's 1828 definitions of an idol is "a devil." Therefore all that is worshiped other than God - things that are loved, admired, respected greatly, perhaps unquestionably or excessively - can be considered a devil. And might we consider all that have those idols are harboring devils knowingly or unknowingly?

 

78. NO CROSSES

There are no crosses displayed in the Bible because we are to preach the cross not display the cross. "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." (I Corinthians 1:18)

Crosses used as religious-wear, signs, and accessories, are like the phylacteries that the Lord Jesus taught about: they are for a show and pretense, "for the LORD seeth not as man seeth for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. " (I Samuel 16:7)

 

79. A PROFITABLE ORGANIZATION

The Lord Jesus' church is not registered with the State because it is not a State church. And besides, the Lord's church is a profitable organization and not a non-profitable organization.

 

80. REACHING GOD'S EAR

Hypocrites calculate the best spot to pray at to reach the most ears. Christians calculate the best spot to pray at to reach the ear of God - in secret. (Matthew 6:5-6)

 

81. PRAYING IN SECRET

Why did Jesus' disciples ask him to teach them how to pray? Perhaps he was praying in secret as his Father had taught him.

 

82. CHURCH QUORUM

How many does it take to have a quorum for church? The Lord Jesus said, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Matthew 18:20) And besides, if you keep it down in the low numbers, you won't have to construct yourself a building to meet in, and surely not a cathedral. Most people already have a room big enough in their house for two or three to meet in anyway. Also, the Lord Jesus may have given this low number because the larger the church group gets the percentage of true believers goes down. Of course, it is much easier for two or three to be in agreement than fifty, a hundred or a thousand.

 

83. TOO HOT? TOO COLD?

A lot of people in the church's sanctuary complain about it being too hot or too cold the sound is too loud or too low the message is too long, or too short or the preaching is not good or not good enough. Remedy: If it is too hot - take off your coat. If it is too cold - put on your coat. If the sound is too loud - get up and move to the back. If the sound is too low - get up and move to the front. If the message is too long - get up and go. If the message is too short - draft someone else to continue. If the preaching is not good or not good enough - apply for the position!

 

84. NOAH'S NAKEDNESS

Ham saw the nakedness of his father Noah, and to see someone's nakedness in the scripture is often a euphemism for the act of fornication, including sodomy and incest. Interestingly, and not coincidentally, some of Ham's descendants became the Sodomites.

 

85. ORDAINED

We, believers, have been ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ to bear fruit. (John 15:16) Why would we want to be ordained by someone else? Answer: We wouldn't, but some think it will aid their personal ministry if they are ordained by man's institutions. However, you may see in scripture that the only people that were ordained, or its equivalent, were before they became believers.

 

86. AN ADDED BLESSING

When you read Jesus' name and pronouns in the scriptures, you can think at the same time "the word of God." This becomes an added blessing.

First, read:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

And think:

For God so loved the world, that he gave the word of God, that whosoever believeth in the word of God should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

87. ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

I suspect when Peter cut off the ear of Malchus, the Lord restored it so he could hear the gospel message clearly. If a person is going to get saved, the Lord is going to make it possible for them to hear and understand the gospel one way or another, even if it takes a miracle! Also, if one doesn't want to hear, God can get his attention as he did with Saul of Tarsus.

 

88. DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY

As ambassadors of Jesus Christ, we ought to have diplomatic immunity as do ambassadors of other nations and kingdoms. As a matter of fact, God has already made us kings and priests unto him, and we shall rule and reign on earth. If the world doesn't regard us as God's ambassadors, we ought to act like it anyway. (Revelation 5:9-10)

 

89. LOVE MANIFESTED

How did Jesus Christ manifest his love to the world? Jesus loved us so much that he taught, preached the truth, and healed sicknesses knowing he would be crucified for doing so. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) How about you?

 

90. COMFORTABLE or UNCOMFORTABLE

The Comforter makes the Lord Jesus' disciples comfortable, but he makes the unbelievers uncomfortable.

 

91. KNOWN BY A #

If the beast is known by his number, are you also known by a number? Who gave and knows you by a number, anyway?

 

92. BREAK - FAST

Start praying in the morning before you break your fast with your break-fast, and you will have prayed and fasted at the same time. (Matthew 17:19-21 Mark 9:28-29 Acts 14:23) You probably have to read that one again.

 

93. THE REWARD METHOD

Christians, like children, need to be disciplined to do the right things. The Lord uses the reward method when it comes to disciplining us to give, pray, and fast in secret. (Matthew 6:3-4, 6, 17-18)

 

94. DRUGS CAN DO NOTHING

If a person is depressed, oppressed, or possessed by a devil, a prescription drug can do nothing to cast it out. However, the medicine can disrupt the brain's functions, and the person can act differently, or be hindered in acting. Doctors in the past permanently disrupted the brain by the psycho-surgery called "lobotomy," but now they can get the same effects with drugs.

 

95. TARES

The tares (the devil's boys) become apparent after Christians bear fruit. Tares are bundled together (in denominations) with other tares (the ones who start those churches) and are thrown into the fire (hell). (Matthew 13:24-30 36-43)

 

96. THE LEAST RESPONSIBILITY

Judas Iscariot, who betrayed the Lord Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, had the least responsibility in the ministry. He was the treasurer and in charge of dispersions

 

97. WIDER & DEEPER

Have a notebook in hand when you sit down with the word of God. If you are prepared, God is prepared to give you note-taking lessons. Once I started taking notes on one verse to see how many notes I could take. After a while, it was apparent that I would never run out of things to jot down because God's word is eternal: wider than wide and deeper than deep.

 

98. WHAT DO THEY DO NOW?

When Christ was here in the flesh, his enemies crucified his body. What do they do now to the Body of Christ? Hint: "And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. (Mark 8:34-35)

 

99. WORD - NOT NUMERAL

Jesus Christ is the Word of God - not the Numeral of God. Many people do not realize that the chapter and verse numbers were added to the scriptures by scholars for reference work. However, though the Lord Jesus said he would send scribes or scholars (Matthew 23:34), there are scribes to be wary of: "Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts Which devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation." (Luke 20:46-47)

 

100. SALVATION IS...

Salvation is following the Word of God for ever and ever: not just raising your hand, repeating a prayer, and meeting in a religious building three times a week.

 

101. PRONOUNS NOT CAPPED

The names of God are not: thee, thou, or he, and are not to be capitalized. This is true about pronouns in the 1611 Authorized Version of the Bible concerning God or anyone else. However, all the actual names of God are capitalized. Here are some of his names: God, Lord, Jesus, Christ, Almighty, Creator, Jehovah, King, Shepherd, and Jealous. Most modern Bible translations capitalize the pronouns of God as do other religions for their gods. They are attempting to put all gods and our God on the same level.

 

102. BUILDING OR BODY?

When you think of the mansion that the Lord Jesus has prepared for you in heaven, do you think of a building? Or do you think the body you now call a tabernacle will become an indestructible mansion in the future?

 

103. BIRTHDAYS

There are three birthdays in the Bible that have alcohol involved in the celebration: the day Pharaoh pardoned his butler (bartender) instead of his baker, the day Job's children were celebrating his eldest son's birthday, and the day Herod the king offered Herodias' daughter half his kingdom. Interestingly, Pharaoh executed his baker but reinstated the one who served him his swill. Job didn't attend his son's birthday party, as he chose to pray for them instead, but they were all killed anyway. And Herod was entrapped by his wife's conspiracy to murder John the Baptist by using her own daughter (his step-daughter) as lustful bait.

 

104. JESUS' FUNERAL PLAN

What was Jesus' funeral plan versus Pharaoh's funeral plan? The Lord Jesus did not have a funeral plan. However, his Father had his body interned in the earth for a brief time by some of his servants. The Egyptian Pharaohs planned elaborate funerals for themselves, and some have the largest tombstones on earth called pyramids, which were built by their slaves.

 

105. THOSE YOU DON'T KNOW

It is just as easy to pray for the whole Body of Christ as it is for an individual. This is one reason for the Lord's model prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. Be a blessing to those you know, and to those you don't know, by praying for the whole Body of Christ as well as individuals. Also, the Lord's model prayer is for secret praying in your closet. It was not taught to be a public congregational prayer.

 

106. THE BATTLE OF THE AGES

The Kingdom of Heaven vs. The Kingdom of Leaven

 

107. HUNTING TROPHIES

The crucifixes you see are Satan's hunting trophies. The devil's boys love to exhibit them as they depict our Lord Jesus Christ dead and powerless.

 

108. THE EMBEDDED MARK

The embedded mark of the beast manifests in the right hand or forehead of those who bow or salute to his image. (Revelation 13:16)

 

109. THE NAME

What is the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost? (Matthew 28:19) Jesus Christ is the answer! Many denominations do not know this when they baptize, and maybe they don't want you to know. Peter knew and stated it plainly: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38)

 

110. SCARS = MEDALS?

Will believers still bear the scars from wounds suffered in the service of the Lord as Christ did after the resurrection? Perhaps heroic Christian acts, in the form of scars, are the medals one carries for all eternity. If this is true, what scars will we display in the resurrection? Also, did all of the healed wounds suffered by the Lord Jesus Christ change his appearance?

"And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing." (John 20:26-27)

"And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." (Revelation 5:6)

"And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. (John 20:14)

"And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him." (Luke 24:15-16)

 

111. BLOOD OF THE SAINTS

Did Cain, the first anti-Christ, kill Abel as a sacrifice and drink his blood?

"And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration." (Revelation 17:6)

 

112. GIVE ME A BREAK

One way to love your neighbor is to stay at home on the sabbath day and give him a break from you. "Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor's house lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee." (Proverbs 25:17)

 

113. BORN AGAINER

Most Christians celebrate the day they were born a sinner, but not the day they were born againer.

 

114. DEADLY DRINKING

Another one of the signs of believers is "...if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them...." (Mark 16:18b) This truth came in handy as I was backpacking cross country. As water got scarce from time to time, I had to drink rain that had accumulated in rock formations, share cattle trough water with the regulars, and drink from a remote rest area faucet where a sign warned against doing so. Also, the truth of drinking any deadly thing could come in handy if someone was going to poison you secretly.

Now, many years later, I also apply this verse to the municipal water supply that is "treated." Ha! Treated by who and for what? Is the city water so polluted to start with it has to be treated? Maybe so. I hear in some cities they recycle sewer water and say it is perfectly safe for drinking. Who'd believe that one? And what is one of the chemicals the city is treating your water with - fluoride so your teeth don't get cavities? I think the prevention of tooth decay was far from the mind of the city council when they added that rat poison to your water, though it may work. I have heard about the dangers of fluoride, since I was a little guy, and thought the cautionaries were loons, but not so now. However, I do think some slick chemical company gave a bribe to get their treatment plant into your city. Well, if that's the water available for you with fluoride, bleach, and whatever other chemical additives, I am glad if we drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt us.

P.S. Since I wrote this, I have found out that the government gives grant money to water districts if they add fluoride to their water. You probably got it in yours. Too weird.

 

115. DOCTOR TO WRITER

Who got healed by the Lord Jesus with the help of a physician? The scripture indicates Luke was or had been a physician, but there is no account of him helping the Lord in treating the sick. Hmmm. Interesting! Maybe ol' Dr. Luke found a better way to treat people for spiritual, mental, and physical maladies then the way the world does. This truth may have put him out of the medical business and into Gospel writing instead.

 

116. Ho, Ho, Ho! THE JOKES ON YOU

"Merry Christmas" is a Satanic greeting that celebrates the murdering of Jesus Christ, as defined by the two words that make it up - Christ and Mass. The jokes on you!

Message: Christmas: The Merry Murdering of Christ

 

117. THE CROSS TO BEAR & WEAR

Lots of people wear a cross as jewelry. Some crosses are gold, some are silver, and some are of wood, and some are of plastic. And a cross in a woman's jewelry box can be a standard item. Of course, Christian women are not to be adorned with such things, but with good works instead. (I Timothy 2:9-10) Evidently, it was not necessary for men to be told that.

The Lord Jesus said, "Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Mark 8:34) In other words, as he was going to Calvary to be crucified for being God's righteous Son, you can get in line and be nailed to Calvary's cross as well. That is not a pretty picture, is it? And many of his disciples left him because they knew exactly what he was saying. The cross the Lord Jesus preached about is the right cross to bear and wear, but not the one that is an ornament. By the way, how many rugged crosses have you seen down at the ol' church building anyway? I have only seen one, and it was made of raw tree branches. It got replaced though. Now it is a smooth and polished wooden cross that is back-lit with a fluorescent tube or two. So much for the Old Rugged Cross. The Bible doesn't say anything about displaying the cross, but it does say to preach the cross. (I Corinthians 1:18) Also, crosses are like national and state flags: the big ones are flapped by the likes of politicians, phony preachers, and new and used car dealers.

 

118. TAKING UP SERPENTS

One sign of a believer is "They shall take up serpents..." (Mark 16:18 a) Just about everyone wants to fight the Lord on this one. The word "shall" gives a believer no options, however. In other words, it is a spiritual law that believers shall definitely take up serpents. Of course, it means you shall handle the devil's boys and not be hurt. Refer to the many times the Lord Jesus handled vipers during his ministry as in Mathew Chapter 23. There are also Christians like Stephan, who handled serpents. In his case, that brood of vipers helped him out and sent him on to glory. (Acts Chapters 6 & 7) And don't forget about physical snakes. When Paul was on the island of Melita, he was bitten by poisonous one. He just shook it off like he did with spiritual snakes and felt no harm. By the way, he didn't have to go looking for snakes (physical or spiritual) because they came looking for him. I have found this true myself.

While we were living in warmer climes, there were all sorts of copperheads that would slither onto the property from the forest nearby. Usually, my wife saw them first and alerted me. As a matter of fact, there were so many, we got two frog gigs and kept them at the ready outside the back door. We even developed the technique of skewering them to the ground, and then I would find something to cut their heads off. A shovel works well. Those little devils scared me more than they scared my wife, but I figured it was my job to dispatch them, being the head of the house. Even with their heads cut off, they would wiggle around, and then I'd cast them into the fire pit after a liberal dose of charcoal lighter. (Appropriate, don't you think?) We called the fire pit "The Lake of Fire." We had so many copperheads one year, we'd go on snake patrol, but that was usually a futile effort. Mostly they were just there all of a sudden. Here is something else about serpents:

When I was a new believer, I heard of the nut people who handled poisonous snakes down South. Maybe the Lord was having them do it. I don't know. Well, it dawned on me one day, as I was reading in the Old Testament, that Moses was commanded by God to pick up serpents on occasion. That settled it for me. And yes, the Lord might very well tell you to pick up a slithery snake sometime, and I wouldn't put it past him.

 

119. ANSWERED PRAYER

When the church was praying for their enemy Saul of Tarsus, part of the answered prayer was his being sent to hear more Christian witnesses while he arrested, beat, imprisoned, and killed them.

 

120. FRUIT COLLECTORS

Preachers are like people that collect fruit in a basket. You shall know the false preachers by what kind of fruit they collect in their offering baskets, and by what kind of seeds they sow to get the fruit. (Matthew 7:16)

 

121. DESIRED TO BE CALLED...

Have you noticed how many preachers address the King of the Universe only as "Jesus" but they desire to be called by prestigious titles such as Father, Pastor, Pope, Reverend, Doctor, ad infinitum, ad nauseam? This reminds me of the denominational pastor that informed his flock that they were to always address him as Pastor or Reverend, especially in public or in front of strangers.

"But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ and all ye are brethren." (Matthew 23:5-8)

It also reminds me of the other pastor that proclaimed from the pulpit, "You are my people, and I am your Shepherd...you are my sheep, and I am your Pastor." See the contradictions in Psalm 100.

 

122. THE PRESCRIPTION

The only prescription the church has been given:

"Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."(James 5: 13-15)

 

123. SIMON'S SON - JUDAS?

Simon's son, Judas Iscariot, is mentioned four times, but only in John's Gospel. (John 6:70-71 12:4 13:2, 13:25-26) Was Judas Iscariot, the betrayer, the son of Simon Peter the apostle? The first time I thought about it, I had all sorts of ideas.

"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." (Matthew 19:29) "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." (Luke 14:26)

I thought of the cost Peter may have had to pay to follow the Lord. But even if Judas was his son, it was worth it all.

Message: Was Simon Peter the Son of Judas Iscariot?

 

124. 15 SECONDS A DAY

After you enter into heaven, and if you were asked by God how you liked his book, would you be able to tell him that you even read it? There are about 774,746 words in the 1611 Authorized Version of the Bible. If you have 50 years left to live and haven't read the Lord's best-seller yet, you could read 43 words a day and have it read cover to cover. Let's see; I reckon that is about 15 seconds a day. Of course, you might not have fifty years left, so you'd better get busy just in case you are called home a little sooner. Actually, you could read it easily in 80 hours, but don't be discouraged if someone says you can't absorb very much at that pace. It is permitted to stop and feast upon the word if you are so inclined, and chew your meal well. You know, a lot of people say they love the Lord, but they don't like to read his word. Now that is rather perplexing - they love the Lord, but they don't like to listen to what he has to say?

 

125. FIRST LOVE MESSAGE

The first love message the Lord Jesus preached was the same as John the Baptist's love message: "Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Jesus Christ loved us so much, he told us that we were going the wrong way and should turn around - repent - and follow him. By the way, most people tend to think of John the Baptist as a "hellfire and damnation" preacher, but the word "John" means: Jehovah has been gracious. Surely God's naming him proves the repent message is a gracious love message. In other words, God didn't have to warn you about going the wrong way, but he did warn you as a favor.

This reminds me of the time I was on an emailing list of a preacher. He wrote a daily thought or two and sent it out to over 1500 people. One time I wrote a love message reply, "Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand," and it went to everyone on his list too. Well, he was upset a bit because some people didn't like that kind of message and unsubscribed. You see, many Christians don't even know that Jesus preached the message of repentance as well as gracious John.

 

126. THE SECRET PRAYER

The Lord's Prayer was taught to be prayed in secret, but the typical church teaches it as a congregational prayer, and it is mostly used for that, or repetitious praying.

 

127. NOT-SO-SECRET

Alms are to be given in secret (Matthew 6:1-4), but in the typical church and synagogue, they toot more than a trumpet before giving alms. As you know, one important part of the planned public church performance is the not-so-secret offertory.

 

128. PERSECUTION

There are two kinds of blessings given for being persecuted as noted in the Sermon on the Mount.

(1) "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (2) "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." (Mathew 5:10-12)

The first persecution does not say persecuted by men, but the next sentence does say by men. If you have the righteousness of God, be assured that the devils know who you are, and will persecute you in the spiritual realm. Their thoughts are not the edifying, exhorting, and comforting thoughts of the Holy Ghost and they desire to take the peace of God away from you. Aren't you familiar with all that worrying and fretting you've done for no good reason, especially of things in the future that may or may not happen? There are enough things just for today to worry about. (Matthew 6:25-34)

However, if you overcome this type of persecution, the devils will move men to revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely. Congratulations and be blessed.

"Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you...." (John 15:18-20)

 

129. FEAR OF THE JEWS

People did not or do not talk openly about the Lord Jesus for fear of the Jewish antichrists.

"And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay but he deceiveth the people. Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews." (John 7:12-13)

Today, many are taught by example (especially by their pastors) not to discuss the Lord Jesus outside of their church buildings. These clergymen, when not on company time, would rather talk about ball games, food, and other topics that do not offend the devil's boys. "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." (Luke 6:26)

 

130. MUD IN THEIR EYES

Before the blind man was healed by the Lord Jesus (John Chapter 9), he addressed him as " Sir." But after he could see, he addressed him as " Lord." Isn't it interesting how many clergymen address the Son of God from their pulpits only as " Jesus?" Perhaps they still have mud in their eyes and need to wash them out with the word of God so they can see, and address him properly. They don't even address him as " Mister Jesus."

 

131. STRIPES OF THE LORD

If an unbeliever becomes ill, regular medical treatment may work even as veterinary medicine may work on an animal. But if by the stripes of the Lord Jesus the believers were and are healed, then Jesus' stripes were not for the healing of the unbelievers. Unbelievers may have to put all their hope in doctors.

 

132. NATIONAL SECURITY EXCUSE

The Lord Jesus was accused of being a terrorist because his statements were twisted by his enemies. Subsequently, he was arrested by the local government, handed over to the federal government, and executed for the sake of national security.

 

133. HOPEFUL

The man at the pool of Bethesda was not resigned to his malady but was still hopeful for a miracle from God. (John 5:1-16) He got his miracle but in a much better way than he had anticipated. And in regards to the thirty and eight years he waited: it is better to receive a miracle after thirty-eight years than never to have received the miracle at all. Not only did he get a healing, but his is recorded in scripture forever!

 

134. BEHEADED DEAD

John Baptist's manner of execution was especially noteworthy because he was a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ.

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." (Revelation 20:4)

Beheading someone assures the killer that the victim is dead. The word "beheaded" in the above verse may mean that all of God's witnesses are killed quite dead as if they were beheaded.

 

135. VERY MUCH ALONE

As in Noah's day, we Christians ought to find ourselves alienated from the rest of the world like he did. Elijah is also an example of a Christian that felt very much alone, but there were, in fact, seven thousand others who had not bowed the knee to Baal. The ministry of the prophets seems to be very solitary one most of the time, but for good reason. They needed to hear much from the Lord and not much from the world.

 

136. SEVEN DEVILS

Mary Magdalene may have had seven devils because she had had one devil leave her, and seven others came back. (See parable: Matthew 12:43-45) No wonder she submitted to the Lord Jesus so dramatically after being delivered from that bunch. (John 12:1-3)

 

137. INTIMIDATED = NO HEALING

The man the Lord sent to the pool of Siloam to wash his eyes may not have been able to get healed until he was an adult. His parents were intimidated by the Pharisees as we read in John Chapter 9 and were content their son was able to beg for a living. We might suspect if he were still a child, they would not have taken him to Christ, like others, because they would have feared being put out of the synagogue. This is in contrast to Jairus, one of the rulers of a synagogue, who risked excommunication and publicly begged the Lord Jesus to come heal his daughter.

 

138. NAME - NOT A NUMBER

You mother gave you a name - not a number. Many times people and institutions go by numbers instead of names. Number identifications are used for chattel mainly. Even the lowly one-dollar bill has its own personal identification number. (Revelation 13:16)

 

139. ONLY HEALINGS

In many cases, Christian's believe in treating disease symptoms, but not in the healing of those diseases. The Lord, however, gives only healings unless his treatments end up as healings. (II Kings 5:1-14, Mark 8:22-26, John 9:1-11)

 

140. SABBATH OF THE LORD

The sabbath day may not be the seventh day of the Roman Catholic's god, or the Methodist's god, or the Baptist's god, but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God. (Exodus 20:8-11)

 

141. ZACHARIAS MURDERED?

Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, may have been murdered as noted by the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar." (Matthew 23:34-35)

If Abel was the first prophet of God, the above Zacharias was probably the last prophet of God who did not see the Lord come. John the Baptist saw the Lord, however, and his father, Zacharias, foretold of Christ's coming and is noted in scripture as a prophet. (Luke 1:61-80) The Lord Jesus' use of the word "ye" in the last sentence of Matthew 23:34-35, lays the death of Zacharias personally on those present.

 

142. WON !

If they can be won to a church with spaghetti dinner, they can be won away with barbequed ribs. If they can be won with the Word of God - they are won!

 

143. SICK IN SIN

The devil may not care that people get saved if he can keep them sick in sin. After all, a sinful believer is in rebellion to the captain of their salvation and makes a poor soldier. For example, during the United States' Civil War, more soldiers were incapacitated by dysentery caused by unclean living, and venereal disease caused by fornication, then by wounds caused by the enemy.

 

144. FLAGS & PHYLACTERIES

Flags are like phylacteries - they are a cover up. Perhaps they should be called, "Flagacteries."

 

145. DECOY CHURCHES

Decoy churches are like decoy ducks. They are used by the devil to lure in the real Christians within shooting range.

 

146. BEASTLY STANDARDS

Agencies of the beast fly his flag at his buildings, and agents of the beast fly his flag at their homes.

 

147. DOOR-TO-DOOR EVANGELISTS

Many door-to-door evangelists are like other door-to-door salesmen. They have devised a plan to talk you into buying something you weren't in the market for they want you to make a decision without thinking about it and after you are converted to the wrong way, they hope to extract money from you for the rest of your life.

 

148. THE UNHOLY LAND

What is holy about The Holy Land?

"And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." (Revelation 11:8)

 

149. SODOMITES = VIOLENT

The scriptural word for homosexual is sodomite. This word is not used by the sodomites because the Bible depicts them as immoral. Sodomites, by the way, fall under the same general sin called fornication. Sodomites are also portrayed in scripture as violent people. (Genesis 18 and 19 Judges 19)

 

150. GOD DOESN'T LOVE DEVILS

If hell is "everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41), then people like Judas Iscariot go to everlasting fire because they are the devil's angels. You might have to think on that one a while to accept, and, also, why God doesn't love everyone. God doesn't love devils.

"Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." (John 6:70-71)

"As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." (Romans 9:13)

 

151. THEY FEAR THE BEAST

The reason people receive the mark of the beast is boiled down to a simple truth: The marked people are the people who fear the beast more than they fear God.

"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" (Revelation 13:4)

"But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell yea, I say unto you, Fear him." (Luke 12:5)

"Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (Revelation 14:7)

 

152. THE HEAD OF THE WOMAN

"But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man and the head of Christ is God." (I Corinthians 11:3)

All you have to do is mention this down at the ol' synagogue and you'll start catching a lot of flak, especially by liberated women. Read the scripture carefully and in context. Do you see? It is not a commandment to do - it's just a fact - whether you know it or not, think it or not, or care about it or not, or believe it or not. It is just the way it is, and there are probably a lot of people, male and female, who are in rebellion about it. The head of Christ is God - fact. The head of every man is Christ - fact. The head of the woman is the man - fact.

 

153. JESUS IS THE LORD

Judas Iscariot could not address Jesus as Lord. The best that he could call him was "master" (lower case), a common name for a common teacher.

"And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he take him, and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master and kissed him." (Mark 14:44-45)

The Lord Jesus said about Judas: "Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." (John 6:70-71)

How important is it to freely confess, to express, and try to convince others that Jesus is the Lord?

"The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:8-9)

 

154. JOHN BAPTIST & BAPTISTS

The scripture points out that the disciples of John the Baptist and others called him, "John Baptist" - as his first and last name.

"And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger." (Matthew 14:8)

"And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?" (Luke 7:19-20)

To be called a "Baptist" is to be a follower of John Baptist, the prophet who pointed to the Lamb of God. But some of the Baptists did not go on to follow Jesus Christ and become Christians. They did, however, continue to baptize by immersion, knowing only John's water baptism, but not the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Today, the denominationalist who call themselves by his name, still major on water baptism and when they baptize, many only say, "in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost." Evidentially they don't know the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The apostle Peter knew: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."

 

155. THE NAZARENES

The Nazarenes were the first people who tried to kill Jesus Christ. Also, the early Christians did not call themselves "Nazarenes," but their enemies called them Nazarenes. (Acts 24:5) It is incredible there is a denomination that goes by that name today.

 

156. CAPITOL VS. CAPITAL

Capitol (as in national and state capitol) comes from the word, Capitolium. The Capitolium was the temple of Jupiter, the god of gods, in ancient Rome. The capitol was the building where the legislature met, while the capital was the city where the temple was located. Think on it.

 

157. SKULL & BONES

Golgotha means "place of the skull" where our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified. Perhaps Yale's Skull and Bones Society should be called the Golgotha Society - and for good reason.

"And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst." (John 19:17-18)

 

158. BEASTLY CAIN

Cain was the first world priest and first world ruler. (Beast #2 and Beast #1: Revelation 13)

Cain as a priest: "And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD." (Genesis 4:3)

Cain as a ruler: "And Cain knew his wife and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch." (Genesis 4:17)

 

159. PLAYING WAR

Satan was the first one to start a war, which took place in heaven, and now he continues to start wars on earth, and use both sides like little boys play war - but with real people.

 

160. DAGGER = OBELISK = CROSS

The reference mark known as the dagger (†) is in the form of a cross. It is also called an obelisk. An obelisk is the image of the sun god, and a cross also represents the sun god on which our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified by Rome.

" And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified." (Mark 15:15)

" And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS." (John 19:19)

 

161. MARK OF THE BEAST

Cain was the first murderer and the first person to receive the mark, which was the mark of God's judgment to come. The righteous men who perceived Cain was an apostate - a marked man - left the arrest, trial, and execution of Cain unto the Lord. (Relate to Revelation 13 Mark of the Beast.)

" And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth and from thy face shall I be hid and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." (Genesis 4:13-15)

 

162. FEASTING ON THE WORD

Many people think the Lord's Supper is only a little religious ceremony of eating a piece of bread followed by the taking of the cup. However, like many of the Lord Jesus' teachings, the spiritual application is really what it's all about. If you do not partake and ingest the word of Jesus Christ for its spiritual nutrition, like one does with natural food, you will have no spiritual life in you. (Read all about it in John Chapter 6) So, you can have a communion service every day if you'd like, but if you are not feasting on the word of God, it will profit you nothing. Communion is communicating with the Lord Jesus Christ, as in two or three gathered together in his name.

 

163. WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER?

If the personal number of the beast is a man's number, and his personal number is 666, what is your personal number? You know, don't you.

" Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (Revelation 13:18)

 

164. FALSE RELIGION EXEMPTION

The only people to have income tax exemptions and tax-free land in Pharaoh's Egypt were the false religious leaders.

" Only the land of the priests bought he not for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands." "And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's." (Genesis 47:22, 26)

 

165. UNCLE SAM?

If Uncle Sam were really your uncle, he wouldn't tax you. So who is he?

" And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee." (Matthew 17:24-27)

 

166. A NAME - NOT A NUMBER

Your parents gave you a name - not a number - because you were not a piece of property to be owned, kept track of, and inventoried.

" And Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son, and called his name Seth...." (Genesis 4:25)

 

167. HOT AS HELL!

The environmentalists are right about Global Warming. It is going to get as hot as hell!

" And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory." (Revelation 16:8-9)

 

168. ALCOHOL

The biggest drug problem is alcohol, and it comes in all kinds of pretty bottles and flavors to choose from, needs no prescription, and is sold over the counter, or over the bar.

 

169. TAXES & CENSUS

Augustus Caesar taxed and took a census to show he was the boss, and his churches do the same by taking tithes and head counts.

 

170. WOULD YOU DO IT?

When the Lord Jesus healed the sick, he took their sicknesses upon himself, and bore them on the cross. If you prayed for the sick, and it meant you would bear their sicknesses for them, would you do it? Maybe praying for the sick takes a bigger heart and faith than we suppose.

 

171. PHARAOH & SSI

Pharaoh commanded the people to stock their corn in the national granary as social security insurance for the lean years to come. When the lean years came, they had to sell everything they owned (including themselves) to get it back.

 

172. DEATH

The death God has planned for you is better than the one you would pick for yourself. And the death you avoid is probably better than the one you could end up with.

 

173. 2 FACED & 7 FACED

The Lord Jesus called the Pharisees and scribes hypocrites, meaning, two-faced actors. The devil excels at hypocrisy because he has seven heads to start with. (Revelation 12:3)

 

174. JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS

The submissive army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea while in pursuit of the Hebrews. The obedient soldiers of Nebuchadnezzar the king were burned alive when they threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the furnace. The dutiful guards of Herod's prison were executed that watched Peter. Therefore, just following orders can get you into a heap of trouble - if they are in opposition to God.

 

175. MATTER OF COURSE

If you look up the definition of "worship" you will discern many people worship idols and are taught to in school as a matter of course.

 

176. CLAIMING TO BE JEWS

No one can call themselves a Jew (from the tribe of Judah) with any certainty today except the Lord Jesus Christ, because his family tree is documented in scripture. (Matthew 1:1-16 Luke 3:23-38) Everyone else's pedigree was destroyed in the temple, 70 AD. So, anyone can claim to be a Jew, but they can not prove it. For all you know, you are a Jew, or a Rubenite, or a Simeonite, or a Levite, etc. And come to think about it, why would anyone want to claim to be a Jew? Do they desire to associate themselves with the most famous Jew Jesus Christ? Is that why all the Jews in Israel call themselves Jews today or do they subtly want to associate themselves with the infamous tribe of Israel that conspired to kill him?

 

177. PROPHETS LOOK LIKE...

What do some prophets of God look like?

Jesus Christ: "...he hath no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him." (Isaiah 53:2)

John the Baptist: "And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins and his meat was locusts and wild honey." (Matthew 3:4)

The Two Prophets: "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth." (Revelation 11:3)

The clothes might make the man, but God makes the prophets.

 

178. ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

One way or another, Christians will come out of Babylon as God commands. (Revelation 18:4-5) Better to do it now and reap the benefits, than to be yanked out like Lot, and loose everything you have.

 

179. DIVISIVE DENOMINATIONS

The divisive denominations of the past (the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians), and the ones today are in harmony on one point - they fight against the authority of the word of God.

 

180. NO GRANDFATHERS!

The word Grandfather" is not in the Bible, but grandmother is. For Christians, there is only one Father, and he cannot be a grandfather - a chief father of many fathers. Therefore, one ought not to be called grandfather.

 

181. CHOP-CHOP

John Baptist is a good illustration of being a Revelation Chapter 11 prophet of God. As soon as your ministry is finished here on earth, the devil gets to send you off to heaven chop-chop.

 

182. SHEEPSKIN = DIPLOMAS

False prophets come to you in sheep's clothing with their diplomas, which are known as "sheepskins." (Matthew 7:15)

 

183. CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?

Jesus was taken by Satan to a high mountain to see the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. Was it the capital of the world, Jerusalem, where he would later be killed for rejecting the offer?

 

184. JOINERS TO ANOTHER BODY

Spiritual fornication is joining oneself to another church which is not the Lord Jesus' church. Such bogus places abound in spiritual and physical fornication. If you are already in the body of Christ, why would you join yourself to another body?

 

185. DEVIL WORSHIP = WHORING

Speaking of fornication: Devil worship, (image worship) is also known as "whoring." (Lev. 17:7)

 

186. RED LIPS

The lips of "THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" are red from drinking the blood of the saints. Lipstick is usually red and simulates that right well. (Revelation 17:5-6)

 

187. SECULAR TO CHRISTIAN USE

What ever secular talents you have may be translated into Christian use. Jesus Christ was a carpenter and built his church. Paul was a tent maker and helped shield the congregations with the word of God. Moses was educated to be a national leader and was a shepherd, and lead the Hebrew nation forty years in the wilderness. Peter, James, Andrew, and John were fishermen who became fishers of men. And Matthew, a record keeping tax collector, kept a detailed account of Jesus' ministry.

 

188. DEVIL DON'T LIKE THEM

Everyone likes the ministries that specialize in healings, but many do not like the ones that specialize in revealing false prophets, counterfeit churches, and the judgment and wrath of God to come. I suppose the devil doesn't like them either.

 

189. OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Working for the Lord may not pay much money, but retirement is out of this world.

 

190. SAME O' SAME O'

The New World Order is the same Old World Order, and has never stopped ordering people around.

 

191. PLAYING WAR

Devils love to play war like little boys, but with real people. Or should I say, little boys love to play war like the devil's boys. And some boys, when they grow up, play war with real people. Interestingly, Kaiser Wilhelm played war against his royal English cousins when they were children, and after they grew up, they played real war against each other in World War I. Also, in the parlance of war, there are theaters of wars, and in ancient Rome, gladiators fought to the death in the theater called the Coliseum.

 

192. TRIPLE CROSSERS

The British Empire's flag has three crosses on it like the Roman Empire's three crosses at Calvary.

 

193. CONSCIENCE REVEALING

If the Ten Commandments reveal the state of ones conscience, then the Sabbath day commandment must be as conscience revealing as the others.

 

194. THE VIOLENT GET SAVED

The timid do not enter into the kingdom of heaven, but the violent (emotionally intense) do. "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." (Matthew 11:12)

 

195. WORD NOT BOUND

The Pharisees taught from the scriptures, but they didn't believe in what they taught. It is a good thing the word of God does not return void, and some hearing the word believed and got saved in spite of them. It is the same way with bogus churches today. The ministers do not believe the word of God, but if someone hears the word, the word of God is not bound by their preacher's unbelief.

 

196. TAKE A HINT

Christ had no authorization to preach, teach, heal, and cast out devils from a denomination, because he was not a member of one. Take a hint.

 

197. "WE THE PEOPLE"

God is not the authority and founder of the United States because "we the people" are. Look out!

 

198. TIME IS UP

When the Lord returns to judge the world, it will be as in the days of Lot and Noah, where fornication and violence did abound. Time is up. Behold, he cometh! (Revelation 1:7)

 

199. NOT MANY BELIEVERS

When the Lord returns to judge the world, it will be as in the days of Lot and Noah, and there will not be many believers in your neighborhood.

 

200. NOT CHEAP

God is not cheap but gives and answers prayers liberally. (James 1:5) Even in the feeding of the multitudes there were leftovers.

 

201. LEAVEN = BAD DOCTRINE

Leaven (like bad doctrine) is just floating around in the air (waves) waiting to grow in the right environment.

 

202. HEAR CHRIST

On the Mount of Transfiguration, the church was commanded to hear Jesus Christ over Moses and Elijah - not to mention any contemporary preachers you may have heard of. (Mark 9:7)

 

203. WHICH GOD?

Why does the one dollar bill say, "In God We Trust," but has the Egyptian pyramid on the back with the all seeing eye of Horus the sun god?

 

204. MANY OUT OF ONE

The motto, "E Pluribus Unum" means, "Out of many - one." At the Tower of Babel, the Lord took the one people and made many nations, because their united nature was to do evil, and that continually. Who wants to unite the people of the world now?

 

205. SWIFT AND SURE

How long does the wrath of God last in Revelation 16? Maybe six hours as it did when Christ took upon himself the wrath of God for our sins on the cross. If it is that short, then the vengeance of God is swift and sure. However, after Judgment is passed, internment in the lake of fire lasts for ever.

 

206. PAGAN EASTER

Herod did not celebrate Passover because he was an antichrist, and celebrated the pagan holiday Easter instead. (Acts 12:1-4)

 

207. 1 NOT 3

God is referred to in the Revelation as "one," but never as three:

"And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle." (1:13)

"And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne." (4:2)

"And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle." (14:14)

 

208. MOTHER VS. LORD

Your mother may have taught you to pray, "Now I lay me down to sleep," but the Lord Jesus taught us to pray, "Our Father which art in heaven."

 

209. PRISON VS. WARD

There is a difference between a prison and a ward. Kings of this world have prisons for punishment, in which Joseph, John the Baptist, Peter, John, Paul, and Silas were kept. But under God's law for Israel, people were cast into wards (holding facilities) pending an immediate trial. Those found guilty were punished or fined, but they were not sentenced to prison terms. Prisons, after all, are places to torture people.

 

210. THE HIRED

Hired ministers (John 10:13) do not care for their congregations, because it is just a job like any other job, and...

When the funds are not there,

They make like a hare,

And find employment at another lair.

For when there is little or no pay

They will not stay

But will be "called away"

To secure mammon for another day.

 

211. FLAG AND CROSS

I have found most people who fly the flag don't read the constitution much and most people who wear a cross don't read the Bible much, either.

 

212. BE ZEALOUS

When the Lord says to "be zealous," does one have a choice? (Revelation 3:19) But you say you do not have that type of personality. Well, maybe you are not one of his!

 

213. NEEDS ARE MET

The needs of those who sit at the feet of Jesus Christ are met, even if it takes a miracle, as it did in feeding multitudes.

 

214. CALLED VS. CHOSEN

To be called by Jesus Christ is to be beckoned as a formality but to be chosen is to be intentionally picked. In other words, many are called or beckoned to repent, but only the chosen can repent. Also, the Lord Jesus said, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you." (John 15:16)

 

215. PRIDEFUL VS. MEEK

When potentates pridefully enter into a city, they may do so on a white horse, in a pope mobile, a tank, a limousine, a plane, or an armored SUV. (Matthew 20:1-18) Contrastingly, when the King of this universe entered into Jerusalem, he came "meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass." (Matthew 21:5)

 

216. WRONG WAY

Judas was hired by the chief priests to betray the Lord, and then took a turn down Suicide Alley.

 

217. PHYSH-LACTERIES

You know, those little fish symbols Christians put on business cards, bumper stickers, and lapel pins, as in phylacteries.

 

218. CHRIST IS NOT A MERCHANT

Jesus Christ brought free teaching, preaching, and healing to the temple, but the thieves brought their merchandise to sell.

 

219. NAKED

Babies are not ashamed to be naked, but adults ought to be. (Revelation 3:18)

 

220. HOT OR NOT

Every Christian who knows what is really going on in the world is hot and can not be lukewarm.

 

221. ON FLATTERY

Jesus perceived the wickedness of the denominationalist called the Pharisees because they flattered him. (Proverbs 2:10-17 7:1-5 29:5)

"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him." (John 3:1-3) Notice Nicodemus did not call him Lord.

"Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men." (Matthew 22:15-16) (Notice they did not call him Lord, either.)

 

222. WAIT NO LONGER

If you are waiting for the temple of God to be rebuilt before the Lord returns, wait no longer. It was rebuilt three days after he died on the cross.

"Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body." (John 2:18-21)

 

223. THE SLOTHFUL SERVANT

The slothful servant hid his lord's money because he was going to dig it up later and spend it on himself. (Matthew 25:14-30)

 

224. THE FOOLISH VIRGINS

The foolish virgins are like people talk about going to heaven, but they have made no real plans about it. (Matthew 25: 1-13)

 

225. GOD DOES NOT GIVE...

God gives to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, and pastors and teachers but he does not give seminary diplomas, ordination papers, or preacher licenses.

 

226. THE REAL HIGH PRIEST

Some say the one healed leper coming back to worship the Lord Jesus was disobedient because he didn't show himself to the priests right away. (Luke 17:11-19) On the contrary, he came back because he realized Jesus was the high priest!

 

227. HAPPY IN THIS WORLD?

The prophets wore sackcloth because they knew there wasn't anything to be happy about in this world.

 

228. TAKING A STAND

Judas took his stand with his own kind - the chief priests and the elders. (John 18:1-5) With whom do you take your stand? The Baptists? The Methodist? The Roman Catholics? Or do you take your stand with Jesus Christ?

 

229. USING UNBELIEVERS

God can use the unbeliever's charities to feed the poor, as he can use the unbelieving preachers to feed the spiritually hungry.

 

230. THE TALENTS IN YOU

What talents did the Father give to his Son to invest? Teaching, preaching, and healing. All believers can use these talents in their houses, for the one with the talents lives within them.

 

231. KINGS AND PRIESTS REIGN

If we are kings and priests unto God, who will we reign over in eternity? Those thrown into the lake of fire. Not much effort will be taken up in that department however.

 

232.SUPPORT GROUP

If you are saved, you may not need a support group of more than two or three, because the Lord Jesus will be with you all the time as it is.

 

233. NO LISTENERS NO PROBLEM

Noah preached for years but had only seven people who ever listened. Be encouraged.

 

234. QUIT OR TOSSED

Paul said he had been a Pharisee of Pharisees, but we understand he quit, or they quit him after he got saved. If he had been a Baptist, he would have quit them too - quit or been tossed out.

 

235. THOU HAST SAID

When the Lord Jesus told the disciples that one of them would betray him, eleven asked, "Lord is it I?" But the twelfth asked, "Master, is it I?" The Lord identified him as the betrayer by stating, "Thou hast said." (Matthew 26:21-25) In other words, Judas said he was the betrayer because he did not address Jesus as Lord when he should have.

 

236. AN EXAMPLE

Pilate, the chief priests, and the elders made Jesus Christ an example of what this world wants to do to all the sons of God.

 

237. KNEW BEFORE HE ASKED

Pilate was like any good attorney or politician, and asked only questions he knew the answer to. He asked the Lord Jesus, "Art thou the King of the Jews?" This was in the same way Satan had asked Jesus if he was the Son of God, knowing of course that he was.

 

238. MOTHER DEFINE

Mary was a mother before Jesus was born, because she had a baby in her womb from conception. Abortionists refer to babies in the womb as fetuses, or the products of conception. When Mary and her cousin Elizabeth were both "with child" (II Samuel 11:5, Matthew 1:18, Revelation 12:2), Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost and said to Mary...

"Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. (Luke 1:42-44)

In addition, John the Baptist in his mother's womb expressed joy, and leaped to be in the immediate presence of baby Jesus, in his mother's womb.

 

239. ASK

The woman at the well and John the apostle had something in common. They had a great desire to know the mysterious sayings of Jesus Christ and got answers. (John 4:1-26 Revelation 5:4-5)

 

240. EUNUCH PRESIDENT

God didn't use an election to put Daniel into the presidency (Daniel 6:2), because he was appointed. By the way, Daniel may have been a eunuch which is probably a good requirement for presidents today, now that I think about it.

 

241. PHARISEES = VIPERS

John the Baptist called the Pharisees and scribes "vipers" because they had killed his father Zacharias between the altar and the temple. (Matthew 23:34-36) No wonder John hid out in the wilderness until his appointed time to preach.

 

242. MENTALITY OF ABORTIONISTS

When Jerusalem found out where the King of the Jews was, they didn't come to worship him like the wise men, and their angry king tried to kill him. Also, because the king could not kill Jesus, he slew all the other little children in the region. I reckon that is the same savage slaying mentality of abortionists.

 

243. PLEASURE KILLING

The State does not allow anyone to kill people because they want the sole pleasure of doing so themselves.

 

244. COMMON WALL FALLS

What does September 11, 2001 have in common with the walls of Jericho falling down, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen," the house that fell on Job's children, and the Tower of Siloam?

 

245. PLAINLY THE FATHER

The Lord Jesus Christ plainly revealed he was the Father to the paralytic let down through a roof, (Mark 2:5) the woman healed of an issue of blood, (Mark 5:34) and the eleven disciples. (John 14:9) Check it out.

 

246. HIDDEN AND NOT HIDDEN

Some preachers have learned to wear tattered suits and drive older cars to camouflage their indulgences. On the other hand, some can't hide their indulgences and flaunt their expensive trendy clothes, Rolls Royces, and Rolex watches.

 

247. DEALING WITH DEVIL DOGS

Casting out devils can be like the man who rescued a woman and her dog being attack by two pit bulls. After he grabbed and tossed the dogs away, they came back and attacked him! Are you ready to deal with the devil dogs after you cast them away?

 

248. ON DOCTOR$

The lady with the issue of blood spent all her money on doctors to get healed and didn't. Sound familiar?

 

249. DEVILISH DIVIDENDS

Satan may have been the first banker to talk someone out of their assets and into his pocket. He told Adam and Eve if they would let him invest their souls, he would pay them back by making them gods - and they would get some fruit thrown in for the new account.

 

250. LEAST RESPONSIBILITY

Judas Iscariot, a thief, was given the least responsibility in the ministry, which was being the treasurer and dispenser of money. (John 12:1-6)

 

251. SOCIALIZED LITTLE

The prophets of God socialized little and have few friends because they spent most of their time with the Lord. I suppose the Lord is better company then most folk are anyway.

 

252. HUNGRY FOR THE WORD

Some people were hungry for the word of God and went without food for three days to hear the teachings of Jesus Christ. There were no frills either to keep them there, and AFTER he filled them up with the word of God, he filled them up with food.

 

253. WOULD YOU WAIT?

Why did the Lord Jesus wait three days to feed the people in the wilderness? Maybe it took him three days to get around to healing everyone. Would you wait without food for three days to get your healing, or would you give up, go home, and eat a burger?

 

254. BLESS OR DESTROY

The Word of God comes to bless believers, but the same Word of God torments and destroys devils. (Mark 1:24 Matthew 8:28-29)

 

255. 1 OR 2

When we go into the world to preach the gospel, we do not need a large group to back us up. Just one or two others will do because we have God with, and in us, all the time.

 

256. GOD MADE THE WICKED

The purpose of the crucifixion was for the resurrection, and someone had to do the crucifying. "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." (Proverbs 16:4)

 

257. THE ABOMINABLE CRUCIFIX

The first place that exhibited a crucifix was Jerusalem. That abomination made the city desolate twenty-seven years later.

 

258. NIC A SPY?

Nicodemus told Jesus he knew he was a teacher come from God, but did not sit at his feet to learn as others. Hmmm. Did he come in the cloak of darkness to investigate the Lord Jesus for the chief priests? Did he attend the funeral preparations to confirm his death, burial, and the presence of the security watch? Interestingly, in the beginning of his ministry, Jesus told Nicodemus, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (John 3:11-12) Did you see it? "...ye receive not our witness... ye believe not...."

 

259. STATE CHURCH

501(c)3.

 

260. HIRED TO BETRAY

The chief priests still hire ministers today like they hired Judas - to betray the word of God.

 

261. ON MONEY

Did you ever notice that most money has a name, a mark, a number, an image, or all four? (Revelation 13)

 

262. CATHEDRAL NESTS

The bigger the kingdom of heaven gets, the bigger the nest the fowls of the air can build. Check out the size of those cathedrals!

 

263. CROSSES = CHRIST KILLERS

The crosses we see on and in church buildings and hung around the neck are not the crosses of Christ. They are the crosses of the killers of Christ. We are to preach the cross, not flaunt the cross.

 

264. NEVER RUN OUT

You can never run out of food if you thank the Lord for the food which he has already given, as demonstrated in the feeding of the thousands. There were leftovers to supply the disciples for the next meal, or next day.

 

265. UN, NWO, GS, OWG

God made many nations out of the one Tower of Babel people. Those same people are trying to make E Pluribus Unum today, and call it The United Nations, The New World Order, A Global Society, and One World Government.

 

266. IMITATING THINGS

Gold and jewels are very important to this world because the devil needs them to imitate things in heaven.

 

267. DID NOT CALL HIM LORD

Nicodemus called Jesus "Rabbi," Judas Iscariot called him "Master," and the rich ruler called him "Good master" - but not one of them called him "Lord."

 

268. OVERKILL

Jesus was arrested by the SWAT team of the day, but no SWAT team was necessary. Overkill.

 

269. SANCTUARIES ARE NESTS

Christians are a part of the mustard tree and don't build nests called sanctuaries.

 

270. MARKED

A Mark of the Beast = A Killer, A Stealer, and A Destroyer.

 

271. JUST PASSING THROUGH

Birds that lodge in the mustard tree may eat the mustard seeds of the kingdom of God, but they can just pass right through and grow in some other location.

 

272. THE TWO BIRDS

There were two kinds of birds in Noah's ark. The dove that stayed the longest until there was wholesome food to eat, and the raven that left early and didn't come back because he was less discriminating. They are like people who go to church. Some like a fellowship because there is wholesome food to eat, and others like the putrid flesh as the main course in other groups.

 

273. THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME

The devil is intent on making people break the Ten Commandments, and the first commandment is probably number one on his list. The first thing he got Adam and Eve to believe was there was more than one God. Jesus said he and the Father were one - one and the same - not a trinity.

 

274. THE SELF PERPETUATING LAW

Legal abortion is a self perpetuating law. As more people have abortions, there are more voters who cannot face the fact they have killed their own children.

 

275. STOP GIVING!

At one point Moses told the people to stop giving their offerings because they had more than enough. When was the last time you heard that announcement at church. (Exodus 25:1-2; Exodus 36:6-7)

 

276. 2 FATHERS?

Can you serve two Fathers, or will you hate the one, and love the other; or else hold to the one, and despise the other? (Matthew 23:9)

 

277. JUST ANOTHER NAME

Homosexual is just another name for fornicator.

 

278. NOT TEACHING THE THINGS OF GOD

The Pharisees, the denominational boys of the day, taught how to wash hands, but they did not teach the things of God

 

279. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

"God Save the Queen (King)" Is the British National Anthem, and very well may be a petition by those who know the monarch's true spiritual status.

 

280. THE DEVIL POSSESSED

Many think there are not devil possessed people in America. Of course there are. Some are in prison, some are on medication that short circuits their brains, some are restrained in mental hospitals, and some are wearing three piece suits and preach behind a pulpit.

 

281. ALL ROADS

It has been said that all roads lead to Rome - all but the right one that is!

 

282. YOU SAY IT!

Jesus told Pilate, "Thou sayest I am King." (John 18:37) Then Pilate said it two more times and had it written on a sign on his cross in three languages, too:

"But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?" (Mark 15:9)

"Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?" (John 18:38-39)

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. (John 19:19-20)

 

283. A PICTURE OF HELL

The crucifixion process is a picture of going to hell. Before one is nailed to the cross, they are tormented, tortured, and traumatized as those who lie awake in the grave awaiting judgment. At the cross, one is publicly stripped naked to expose their shame, as those whose sins are exposed at the Judgment. Then, one is nailed and immobilized on a cross in an upright position to roast in the sun, as those who are tormented in flames of outer darkness, dying of thirst, and erased from the mind of God forever.

 

284. HEADACHE

The devil and his bunch do not like to retain God in their minds; and all the believers do for the Lord gives them a headache.

 

285. DYING FOREVER

Jesus was hung on a tree for the sins of the world, and Judas hung himself on a tree for his own sins. If Jesus Christ did not die for your sins, you will have to die for your own - forever.

 

286. NATION UNDER GOD

The only nation ever under God was Israel, and they didn't practice that too often.

 

287. ABOMINATION

The abomination of desolation is sin standing or happening in a holy place, or where it obviously ought not to be. Some abominations are homosexual ministers, homosexual marriages, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, the Darth Vader gargoyle on the National Cathedral, and any objects regarded with extravagant respect, honor, or devotion. It is also an abomination for political leaders to condone abortion (murder), and homosexual acts (fornication).

 

288. EVIDENCE

When those at Cornelius' house believed the gospel, they began to speak in tongues, and magnify God. This was evidence to Peter and other believers that they were saved. If they had not manifested any signs, it would have been evidence that they were not saved.

"And these signs shall follow them that believe In my name shall they cast out devils they shall speak with new tongues They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17-18)

 

289. EAT AT HOME

If you all eat at home before you meet as the Body of Christ, you will be fasting and praying with mountain moving faith when you meet. (Matthew 17:14-21)

 

290. OUT OF BUSINESS

The apostle John had a desire to worship someone who had spiritual insight who was not God but was stopped. (Revelation 19:10) If the same principle were applied today, most popular teachers and preachers would be out of business.

 

291. NO MEN MOTHERS

As there are no men mothers, there are no women teachers. (I Timothy 2:9-15)

 

292. DECEPTION

In Tamar's deception, she covered her face with a veil to conceal her identity and played the harlot. (Genesis 38:6-30) Some do the same today with makeup.

"And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window." (II Kings 9:30)

"Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house. And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments, And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil." (Ezekiel 23:38-41)

"And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life." (Jeremiah 4:30)

"Rentest" above means: to tear, or divide, or accentuate the natural facial features with paint. Makeup changes the color of the skin, and paints the lips, eyebrows, and eyelids with different colors. At one time, it was fashionable to add a brown dot to the check to simulate a mole called a "beauty mark." There is also tattooing of simulated eyebrows where the natural ones are shaved off. (Leviticus 19:28)

 

293. ONLY JUDAS

Judas Iscariot is the only person known to have been personally possessed by Satan. Think on that one.

 

294. TITHING PREACHERS

Many preachers who teach on tithing only tithe on their basic salary, and not on their other incomes, such as: parsonage or parsonage allowance free utilities, telephones, internet, house insurance, family health insurance, car allowances bonuses, holiday and birthday gifts paid vacations and seminars including airfare, hotel, and restaurant expenses. Of course, if he is meeting his lover at the seminar, the church doesn't pay for her, or him, because they are his secret.

 

295. THE CROSS

The cross was The Roman Empire's intimidating sign of terror to its enemies, before and after the Lord Jesus was crucified, and is still used today in the same way. Wake up and smell the coffee. Also, the Roman Catholic Church uses the cross as its "imprimatur," or, Rome's approval of religious literature.

 

296. CHEMICAL WARFARE

Chemical warfare has been going on for a long time:

American Indians were intentionally encouraged to drink liquor by their enemies which contributed to bad behavior. If the bad behavior went outside the tribe, the army could come and take them to jail, or to reservations (concentration camps), and steal their land.

Chinese ruling classes were flooded with opium by the British Empire (1839-1860) because of Chinese trade restrictions. It seems a lot more silver was going into China then going into Great Britain, and the British wanted to dumb down the Chinese national security.

Military personnel have been intentionally exposed to nuclear bomb tests to track the effects of radiation.

The first recreational drug was alcohol. It compromised Noah's guard, helped Jacob and his mother deceive to Isaac, and was in use when Satan dropped a house on Job's children.

 

297. SACRIFICE TO IDOLS

To eat things sacrificed unto idols is to eat animals which have been killed for pleasure. While you may find it unpleasant to kill an animal for food, some find it a gratifying thrill. No doubt these types like to kill in slaughter houses, wars, through capital punishment, euthanasia, and abortion because they have learned the more they kill, the more satanic power they gain. There have not been many famous political leaders who have not killed many - one way or another.

 

298. DIE FOR YOUR OWN SINS - FOREVER

Jesus was hung on a tree for the sins of the world, and Judas hung himself on a tree for his own sins. If Jesus Christ did not die for your sins, you will have to die for your own - forever.

 

299. ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION

The abomination of desolation is sin standing, or happening in a holy place, or where it obviously ought not to be. Some abominations are homosexual ministers, homosexual marriages, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, the Darth Vader gargoyle on the National Cathedral, and any objects that are regarded with extravagant respect, honor, or devotion. It is also an abomination for political leaders to condone abortion (killing), and homosexual acts (fornication).

300. NATION UNDER GOD

The only nation ever under God was Israel, and they didn't practice that too often.

 

301. SERVING THE WORD

If you serve a little of the word of God, you can only feed a few; but if you serve a lot of the word of God, you can feed a lot more. In fact, as in the feeding of the multitudes, you can feed them all until they are stuffed, and have some leftovers for yourself.

 

302. RELIGIOUS WEAR

Many religious leaders wear women's clothing: ballroom gowns, silly hats, and ballerina shoes. It's hard to picture them going grocery shopping - or to the bathroom.
"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God." (Deuteronomy 22:5)

 

303. BACKSLIDERS

There are three backslidden conditions, and they can be likened to the three people Jesus Christ raised from the dead.

1. Jairus' young daughter who was dead for a few minutes or hours. She is like the child who whimsically decides not to believe in Jesus Christ one day, but it is just for a short time.

2. The only son of a widow who was being carted off to the bone yard. He is like the longtime apparent apostate but when the Lord gets close enough for him to hear his voice on the way to hell, he comes back to spiritual life.

3. Lazarus who was buried and decomposing. He is like an apostate for decades and apparently dies a hopeless case, but when the trump of God sounds, he will meet the Lord in the air like others that served him most of their life.

 

304. LOVE EXPRESSION

What is one way we can love our fellow Christians? By praying for the whole body of Christ as the Lord taught: "Our Father, which art in heaven...." Notice it is "Our Father' - not "My Father."

 

305. GOING TO THE THEATER

Attending most church meetings is like going to the theater. You sit in an auditorium and receive a program of the cast of characters, and an outline of the acts and scenes to be performed. On stage are religious props, spotlights for the actors, a sound system to amplify their lines, and, in some cases, ornate costumes. The audience is passed a basket or plate to pay for admission, but lifetime membership can be bought for a perpetual ten percent of one's income. And before the production begins, there are usually announcements, a warm-up act of singers or musicians, and at the conclusion, the performers come out to solicit compliments.

 

306. SELF-PERPETUATING LAW

Legal abortion is a self-perpetuating law. As more people have abortions, more of the voters cannot face the fact they have killed their own children.

321. BORN AGAINER

Everyone celebrates the day they were born a sinner, but God celebrates the day you were born againer. - (Luke 15:7)

 

322. RED LETTERS

The devil's favorite color is red because he is red. (Revelation12:3) Why do some Bibles have the words of Christ in red? Did you ever notice the red letters are not as sharp and crisp on white paper as black letters are?

 

323. EVIDENCE

When those at Cornelius' house believed the gospel, they began to speak in tongues and magnify God. This was evidence to Peter and other believers that they were saved. If they had not manifested any signs, it would have been evidence that they were not saved.

 

324. HEADACHE

325. CRUCIFIXTION = HELL

Then, one is nailed and immobilized on a cross in an upright position to roast in the sun, as those who are tormented in flames of outer darkness, dying of thirst, and erased from the mind of God forever.

 

326. DEVIL'S BOYS = WOLVES

The devil's boys are sometimes referred to as wolves. Interestingly, Romulus and Remus (the mythical founders of Rome) were raised by a she wolf.

 

327. TITHING PREACHERS?

Many preachers who teach on tithing only tithe on their basic salary, and not on their other incomes.  Such as parsonage or parsonage allowance free utilities, telephones, internet, house insurance, family health insurance, car allowances bonuses, holiday and birthday gifts paid vacations and seminars including airfare, hotel, and restaurant expenses.

330. LOVE EXPRESSION

In Tamar's deception, she covered her face with a veil to conceal her identity and played the harlot. (Genesis 38:6-30) Some do the same today with makeup.

“And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.” (II Kings 9:30)

“Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house. And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments, And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.” (Ezekiel 23:38-41)

“And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.” (Jeremiah 4:30)

“Rentest” above means: to tear, or divide, or accentuate the natural facial features with paint. Makeup changes the color of the skin and paints the lips, eyebrows, and eyelids with different colors. At one time, it was fashionable to add a brown dot to the check to simulate a mole called a “beauty mark.” There is also tattooing of simulated eyebrows where the natural ones are shaved off. (Leviticus 19:28)

 

345. NO MEN MOTHERS

As there are no men mothers, there are no women teachers. (I Timothy 2:9-15)

 

346. CROSSES

The dagger footnote (†) is a single cross and is also called an obelisk, which is another name for the image of the Egyptian sungod. The double dagger footnote (‡) is a double cross, as in betraying someone. Note when and where they are used in advertisements, contracts, etc.

 

347. THEY SHALL HATE YOU

All nations shall hate you because you are a believer. It is a fact, and the operative word is “shall” in contrast to “will.” (Matt-hew 24:9) Dictionary work may be required.

 

 348. WIVES = SCAPEGOATS

When Adam sinned, he used his wife as the scapegoat, and some men do the same today. They say they can or can't do this or that because their wife will or won't let them. Some even let their wives do their “dirty work,” and some wives like to do it. Jezebel comes to mind.

 

 349. MAKEUP

Makeup is like painting a sepulcher. It may make a tomb look good on the outside, but under the thin veneer of pig-ment is something unsightly, unclean, and corrupt.

 

350. BIGGEST DRUG PROBLEM

The biggest drug problem is alcohol, and it comes in all kinds of pretty bottles and flavors to choose from, needs no prescription, and is sold over the counter, or over the bar.

 

351. WHAT DO PROPHETS LOOK LIKE?

Jesus Christ: “...he hath no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.”   (Isaiah 53:2)

John the Baptist: “And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins and his meat was locusts and wild honey.” (Matthew 3:4)

The Two Prophets: “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.” (Revelation 11:3)

The clothes might make the man, but God makes the prophets.

 

352. WHO'S A JEW?

No one can call themselves a Jew (from the tribe of Judah) with any certainty today except the Lord Jesus Christ because his family tree is documented in scripture. (Matthew 1:1-16 Luke 3:23-38) Everyone else's pedigree was destroyed in the temple, 70 AD. So, anyone can claim to be a Jew, but they can not prove it. For all you know, you are a Jew, or a Rubenite, or a Simeonite, or a Levite, etc. And come to think about it, why would anyone want to claim to be a Jew? Do they desire to associate themselves with the most famous Jew Jesus Christ? Is that why all the Jews in Israel call themselves Jews today or do they subtly want to associate themselves with the infamous tribe of Israel that conspired to kill him.

 

353. IDOL WORSHIP 101

If you look up the definition of “worship” you will discern many people worship idols, and are taught to in school as a matter of course.

 

354. JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS

The submissive army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea while in pursuit of the Hebrews. The obedient soldiers of Nebuchadnezzar the king were burned alive when they threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the furnace. The dutiful guards of Herod's prison were executed that watched Peter. Therefore, just following orders can get you into a heap of trouble, if they are in opposition to God.

 

355. SEVEN HEADED ACTOR

The Lord Jesus called the Pharisees and scribes hypocrites, meaning, two-faced actors. The devil excels at hypocrisy because he has seven heads to start with. (Revelation 12:3)

 

356. ON DEATH...

The death God has planned for you is better than the one you would pick for yourself. And the death you avoid is probably better than the one you could end up with.

 

357. PHARAOH'S SOCIAL SECURITY INSURANCE

Pharaoh commanded the people to stock their corn in the national granary as social security insurance for the lean years to come. When the lean years came, they had to sell everything they owned (including themselves) to get it back

 

358. HE BORE THIER SICKNESS

When the Lord Jesus healed the sick, he took their sicknesses upon himself and bore them on the cross. If you prayed for the sick, and it meant you would bear their sicknesses for them, would you do it? Maybe praying for the sick takes a bigger heart and faith than we suppose.

 

359. CAESAR & CHURCHES

Augustus Caesar taxed and took a census to show he was the boss, and his churches do the same by taking tithes and head counts.

 

360. CHOP-CHOP

John Baptist is a good illustration of being a Revelation Chapter 11 prophet of God. As soon as your ministry is finished here on earth, the devil gets to send you off to heaven chop-chop.

 

361. NO GRANDPAS - ONLY GRANDMAS

The name grandmother is in the Bible, but grandfather is not. For Christians, there is only one Father, and he is not a grandfather - a chief father of many fathers. One ought not to be called grandfather, either, or are you the chief father of many fathers?

 

362. DIVISIVE DENOMINATIONS

The divisive denominations of the past (the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians), and the ones today are in harmony on one point - they fight against the authority of the word of God.

 

363. COME OUT

One way or another, Christians will come out of Babylon as God commands. (Revelation 18:4-5) Better to do it now and reap the benefits, than to be yanked out like Lot and loose everything you have.

 

364. WHAT DO PROPHETS LOOK LIKE?

Jesus Christ: “...he hath no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.”   (Isaiah 53:2)

John the Baptist: “And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins and his meat was locusts and wild honey.” (Matthew 3:4)

The Two Prophets: “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.” (Revelation 11:3)

The clothes might make the man, but God makes the prophets.

 

365. WHO'S A JEW?

No one can call themselves a Jew (from the tribe of Judah) with any certainty today except the Lord Jesus Christ because his family tree is documented in scripture. (Matthew 1:1-16 Luke 3:23-38) Everyone else's pedigree was destroyed in the temple, 70 AD. So, anyone can claim to be a Jew, but they can not prove it. For all you know, you are a Jew, or a Rubenite, or a Simeonite, or a Levite, etc. And come to think about it, why would anyone want to claim to be a Jew? Do they desire to associate themselves with the most famous Jew Jesus Christ? Is that why all the Jews in Israel call themselves Jews today or do they subtly want to associate themselves with the infamous tribe of Israel that conspired to kill him.

 

366. IDOL WORSHIP 101

If you look up the definition of “worship” you will discern many people worship idols, and are taught to in school as a matter of course.

The submissive army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea while in pursuit of the Hebrews. The obedient soldiers of Nebuchadnezzar the king were burned alive when they threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the furnace. The dutiful guards of Herod's prison were executed that watched Peter. Therefore, just following orders can get you into a heap of trouble, if they are in opposition to God.

 

367. SEVEN HEADED ACTOR

The Lord Jesus called the Pharisees and scribes hypocrites, meaning, two-faced actors. The devil excels at hypocrisy because he has seven heads to start with. (Revelation 12:3)

 

368. ON DEATH...

The death God has planned for you is better than the one you would pick for yourself. And the death you avoid is probably better than the one you could end up with.

 

369. PHARAOH'S SOCIAL SECURITY INSURANCE

Pharaoh commanded the people to stock their corn in the national granary as social security insurance for the lean years to come. When the lean years came, they had to sell everything they owned (including themselves) to get it back

 

370. HE BORE THIER SICKNESS

When the Lord Jesus healed the sick, he took their sicknesses upon himself and bore them on the cross. If you prayed for the sick, and it meant you would bear their sicknesses for them, would you do it?

 

371. CAESAR & CHURCHES

Augustus Caesar taxed and took a census to show he was the boss, and his churches do the same by taking tithes and head counts

 

372. BIGGEST DRUG PROBLEM

The biggest drug problem is alcohol, and it comes in all kinds of pretty bottles and flavors to choose from, needs no prescription, and is sold over the counter, or over the bar.

 

373. MAKEUP

Makeup is like painting a sepulcher. It may make a tomb look good on the outside, but under the thin veneer of pig-ment is something unsightly, unclean, and corrupt.

 

374. WIVES = SCAPEGOATS

When Adam sinned, he used his wife as the scapegoat, and some men do the same today. They say they can or can't do this or that because their wife will or won't let them. Some even let their wives do their “dirty work,” and some wives like to do it. Jezebel comes to mind.

 

375. CROSSES

The dagger footnote (†) is a single cross and is also called an obelisk, which is another name for the image of the Egyptian sun god. The double dagger footnote (‡) is a double cross, as in betraying someone. Note when and where they are used in advertisements, contracts, etc.

 

376. THEY SHALL HATE YOU

All nations shall hate you because you are a believer. It is a fact, and the operative word is “shall” in contrast to “will.” (Matt-hew 24:9) Dictionary work may be required.

 

377. WRITE A BOOK

The apostle John wrote, “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.” (John 21:25) And seeing that some of the books of the Bible are very small - one less than 300 words - every believer should write a book about our Lord. Be a book writer.

 

378. WHICH GROUP

Which group are you in when it comes to being a Christian? The five hundred who saw the Lord after the resurrection? The seventy he sent out two by two? The twelve apostles? The three apostles who saw special miracles? Or are you like the disciple whom Jesus loved, laid his head upon his breast, and could listen to his heartbeat? If you are not in the last group, pray for a promotion!

 

379. THERE HE IS

When two or three are gathered together in the name of the Lord Jesus, there he is in the midst of them. If you do not have someone to gather with, gather with Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, or an Old Testament prophet like Isaiah.

 

380. BORN AGAINER

Everyone celebrates the day they were born a sinner, but God celebrates the day you were born againer. - (Luke 15:7)

 

381. RED LETTERS

The devil's favorite color is red because he is red. (Revelation12:3) Why do some Bibles have the words of Christ in red? Did you ever notice the red letters are not as sharp and crisp on white paper as black letters are?

 

382. EVIDENCE

When those at Cornelius' house believed the gospel, they began to speak in tongues and magnify God. This was evidence to Peter and other believers that they were saved. If they had not manifested any signs, it would have been evidence that they were not saved.

 

383. PAGAN EASTER

Herod did not celebrate Passover because he was an antichrist, and celebrated the pagan holiday Easter instead. (Acts 12:1-4) In the same way, there are those who celebrate Christmas instead of Jesus' Birthday. By the way, Christmas is the merry celebrating of the killing of Jesus Christ, over and over again, in the Roman Catholic Mass - Christ Mass.

 

384. HOW LONG?

How long does the wrath of God last in Revelation 16? Maybe six hours as it did when Christ took upon himself the wrath of God for our sins on the cross. If it is that short, then the vengeance of God is swift and sure. However, after Judgment is passed, internment in the lake of fire lasts forever.

 

385. E PLURIBUS UNUM

The motto, “E Pluribus Unum” means, “Out of many - one.” At the Tower of Babel, the Lord took the one people and made many nations, because their united nature was to do evil, and that continually. Who wants to unite the people of the world now?

 

386. IN GOD WE TRUST?

Why does the one dollar bill say, “In God We Trust,” but has the Egyptian pyramid on the back with the all seeing eye of Horus the sun god?

 

387. WHO DA HEAR

On the Mount of Transfiguration, the church was commanded to hear Jesus Christ over Moses and Elijah - not to mention any contemporary preachers you may have heard of. (Mark 9:7)

 

388. FALSE PROPHET CLOTHING

False prophets come to you in sheep's clothing with their diplomas, which are known as “sheepskins.” (Matthew 7:15)

 

389. AIR (WAVES)

Leaven, like bad doctrine, is just floating around in the air (waves) waiting to grow in the right environment.

 

390. GOD IS NOT CHEAP

God is not cheap but gives and answers prayers liberally. (James 1:5) Even in the feeding of the multitudes there were leftovers.

 

391. NOT MANY

When the Lord returns to judge the world, it will be as in the days of Lot and Noah, and there will not be many believers in your neighborhood.

 

392. TIME IS UP!

When the Lord returns to judge the world, it will be as in the days of Lot and Noah, where fornication and violence did abound. Time is up. Behold, he cometh! (Revelation 1:7)

 

393. WE THE PEOPLE...

God is not the authority or founder of the United States of America because “We the people” are. Something to think about.

 

394. NOT A MEMBER

Christ had no authorization to preach, teach, heal, and cast out devils from a denomination, because he was not a member of one. Take a hint.

 

395. IN SPITE OF THEM

The Pharisees taught from the scriptures but they didn't believe in what they taught. It is a good thing the word of God does not return void, and some hearing the word believed and got saved in spite of them. It is the same way with bogus churches today. The ministers do not believe the word of God, but if someone hears the word, the word of God is not bound by their unbelief.

 

396. TAKING IT BY FORCE

The timid do not enter into the kingdom of heaven, but the emotionally intense (violent) do. “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12)

 

397. CONSCIENCE REVEALING

If the Ten Commandments reveal the state of one’s conscience, then the Sabbath day commandment must be as conscience revealing as the others.

 

398. TRIPLE CROSSES

 The British Empire's flag has three crosses on it like the Roman Empire's three crosses at Calvary.

 

399. PLAYING WAR

Devils love to play war like little boys, but with real people. Or should I say, little boys love to play war like the devil's boys? And some boys, when they grow up play war with real people. Interestingly, Kaiser Wilhelm  played war with his royal English cousins when they were children, and after they had grown up, they played real war against each other in World War I. Also, in the parlance of war, there are “theaters of wars,” and in ancient Rome, gladiators fought to the death in the theater called the Coliseum.

 

400. UN-HOLY DAYS

Americans celebrate many holidays every year, but none of them are Christian holidays. Easter, for example, is the pagan alternative for Passover, and Christmas is the devil's alternative for Jesus' Birthday.

 

401. NEW WORLD ORDER

The New World Order is the same Old World Order and has never stopped ordering people around.

 

402. CHRISTIAN RETIREMENT

Working for the Lord may not pay much money, but retirement is out of this world.

 

403. LIKES & DON'T LIKES

Everyone likes the ministries that specialize in healings, but many do not like the ones that specialize in revealing false prophets, counterfeit churches, and the judgment and wrath of God to come. I suppose the devil doesn't like them much either.

 

404. TALENT RE-DIRECTION

Whatever secular talents you have may be redirected into Christian use. Jesus Christ was a carpenter and built his church. Paul was a tent maker and helped shield the congregations with the word of God. Moses was educated to be a national leader and was a shepherd and led the Hebrews forty years in the wilderness. Peter, James, Andrew, and John were fishermen who became fishers of men. And Matthew, a record keeping tax collector, kept a detailed account of Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth.

 

405. LIPSTICK

The lips of THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH are red from drinking the blood of the saints. Lipstick is usually red and simulates that right well. (Revelation 17:5-6)

 

406. JERUSALEM: CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?

Jesus was taken by Satan to a high mountain to see the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. Was it the capital of the world, Jerusalem, where he would later be killed for rejecting the offer?

407. ON SERVING

As you cannot serve two masters, you cannot serve two Fathers or two churches.

 

408. DEFINE STATE CHURCH

State Church = 501(c)3.

 

409. A MARK

A Mark of the Beast = A Killer, Stealer, and Destroyer.

 

410. SWAT TEAM

Jesus was arrested by the SWAT team of the day, but no SWAT team was necessary. Overkill.

 

411. NOT ONE OF THEM

Nicodemus called Jesus “Rabbi,” Judas Iscariot called him “Master,” and the rich ruler called him “Good master” - but not one of them called him Lord.

 

412. GOLD & JEWELS

Gold and jewels are very important to this world because the devil needs them to imitate things in heaven.

 

413. TOWER of BABEL PEOPLE

God made many nations out of the one Tower of Babel people. Those same people are trying to make E Pluribus Unum today, and call it The United Nations, The New World Order, A Global Society, and One World Government.

 

414. NEVER RUN OUT OF FOOD

You can never run out of food if you thank the Lord for the food which he has already given, as demonstrated in the feeding of the thousands. There were leftovers to supply the disciples for the next meal or next day.

 

415. CHECK OUT THOSE CATHEDRALS!

The bigger the kingdom of heaven gets, the bigger the nest the fowls of the air can build. Check out the size of those cathedrals!

 

416. MONEY

Did you ever notice that most money has on it a name, a mark, a number, an image, or all four? (Revelation 13)

 

417. HIRED TO BETRAY

 

The chief priests still hire ministers today like they hired Judas - to betray the word of God.

 

418. ABOMINABLE CRUCIFIX

The first place that exhibited a crucifix was Jerusalem. That abomination made the city desolate twenty-seven years later.

 

419. PROVERBS 16:4

The purpose of the crucifixion was for the resurrection, and someone had to do the crucifying. “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.” (Proverbs 16:4)

 

420. ONE or TWO

When we go into the world to preach the gospel, we do not need a large group to back us up. Just one or two others will do, because we have God with, and in us, all the time.

 

421. BLESS or DESTROY

The Word of God comes to bless believers, but the same Word of God torments and destroys devils. (Mark 1:24 Matthew 8:28-29)

 

422. WOULD YOU WAIT?

Why did the Lord Jesus wait three days to feed the people in the wilderness? Maybe it took him three days to get around to healing everyone. Would you wait without food for three days to get your healing, or would you give up, go home, and eat a burger?

 

423. HUNGRY FOR THE WORD

Some people were hungry for the word of God and went without food for three days to hear the teachings of Jesus Christ. There were no frills either to keep them there, and AFTER he filled them up with the word of God, he filled them up with food.

 

424. SOCIALIZED LITTLE

The prophets of God socialized little and had few friends because they spent most of their time with the Lord. I suppose the Lord is better company then most folk are.

 

425. The LEAST RESPONSIBILITY

Judas Iscariot, a thief, was given the least responsibility in the ministry, which was being the treasurer and dispenser of money. (John 12:1-6)

 

426. SATAN = 1st BANKER?

Satan may have been the first banker to talk someone out of their assets and into his pocket. He told Adam and Eve if they would let him invest their souls, he would pay them back by making them gods - and they would get some fruit thrown in for the new account.

 

427. ON DOCTORS

The lady with the issue of blood spent all her money on doctors to get healed, and didn't. Sound familiar?

 

428. DEVIL DOGS

Casting out devils can be like the man who rescued a woman and her dog being attack by two pit bulls. After he grabbed and tossed the dogs away from her, they attacked him! Are you ready to deal with the devil dogs after you cast them away?

 

429. CAN'T HIDE

Some preachers have learned to wear tattered suits and drive older cars to camouflage their indulgences. On the other hand, some can't hide their indulgences and flaunt their expensive trendy clothes, Rolls Royces, and Rolex watches.

 

430.The FATHER REVEALED

The Lord Jesus Christ plainly revealed to the paralytic let down through a roof, the woman healed of an issue of blood, and the eleven disciples, that he was the Father. (Mark 2:5; Mark 5:34; John 14:9)

 

431. COMMONALITIES

What does September 11, 2001 have in common with the walls of Jericho falling down, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, the house that fell on Job's children, and the Tower of Siloam?

 

432. STATE KILLINGS

The State does not allow just anyone to kill people because they want the sole pleasure of doing so themselves.

 

433. SAVAGES

When Jerusalem found out where the King of the Jews was, they didn't come to worship him like the wise men, and their angry king tried to kill him. Also, because the king could not kill Jesus, he slew all the other little children in the region. I reckon that is the same savage slaying mentality of abortionists.

 

434. JB HID OUT

John the Baptist called the Pharisees and scribes “vipers” because they had killed his father Zacharias between the altar and the temple. (Matthew 23:34-36) No wonder he was hid out in the wilderness until his appointed time to preach.

 

435. EUNUCH PRESIDENT

God didn't use an election to put Daniel into the presidency because he was appointed. (Daniel 6:2) By the way, Daniel may have been a eunuch, which is probably a good requirement for presidents today, now that I think about it.

 

436. GETTING ANSWERS

The woman at the well and John the apostle had something in common. They had a great desire to know the mysterious sayings of Jesus Christ and got answers. (John 4:1-26 Revelation 5:4-5)

 

437. A BABY IS IN THE WOMB

Mary was a mother before Jesus was born because she had a baby in her womb from conception. Abortionists refer to babies in the womb as fetuses, and the products of conception. When Mary and her cousin Elizabeth were both “with child” (II Samuel 11:5, Matthew 1:18, Revelation 12:2), Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost and said to Mary...

 “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. (Luke 1:42-44)

 In addition, John the Baptist in his mother's womb expressed joy, and leaped to be in the immediate presence of baby Jesus, in his mother's womb.

 

438. PILATE KNEW

Pilate was like any good attorney or politician and asked only questions he knew the answer to. He asked the Lord Jesus “Art thou the King of the Jews?” And this was in the same way Satan had asked Jesus if he was the Son of God, knowing, of course, that he was.

 

439. The LAMB?

What is the name of God written in our foreheads? (Revelation 14:1 22:4)

 Jesus is called “the Lamb” sixteen times in scripture: fourteen times in Revelation, and two times in John. It is also his most frequent name in THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. Is this simple repetitious teaching and the answer?

 

440. The BETRAYER

When the Lord Jesus told the disciples that one of them would betray him, eleven asked, “Lord is it I?” But the twelfth asked, “Master, is it I?” The Lord identified him as the betrayer by stating, “Thou hast said.” (Matthew 26:21-25) In other words, Judas said he was the betrayer because he did not address Jesus as Lord when he should have like the rest.

 

 

441. THEY TOSSED HIM

Paul said he had been a Pharisee of Pharisees, but we understand he quit, or they quit him after he got saved. If he had been a Baptist, he would have quit them too - quit or be tossed out.

 

442. NOAH

Noah preached for years but had only seven people who ever listened. Be encouraged.

 

443. A SUPPORT GROUP

If you are saved, you may not need a support group of more than two or three, because the Lord Jesus will be with you all the time as it is.

 

444. REIGNING

If we are kings and priests unto God, who will we reign over in eternity? Those thrown into the lake of fire. (Not much time will be taken up in that department however, because there is no time in eternity.)

 

445. TALENTS

What talents did the Father give to his Son to invest? Teaching, preaching, and healing. All believers can use these talents in their houses, for the one with the talents abides within them.

 

446. GOD CAN USE...

God can use the unbeliever's charities to feed the poor, as he can use the unbelieving preachers to sow the word.

 

447. TAKING A STAND

Judas took his stand with his own kind - the chief priests and the elders. (John 18:1-5) With whom do you take your stand? The Baptists? The Methodist? The Roman Catholics? Or do you take your stand with Jesus Christ?

 

448. SACKCLOTH

The prophets wore sackcloth because they knew there wasn't anything to be happy about in this world.

 

449. REAL OBEDIENCE

Some say the one healed leper coming back to worship the Lord Jesus was disobedient because he didn't show himself to the priests right away. (Luke 17:11-19) On the contrary, he came back because he realized Jesus was the high priest!

 

450. GOD DOES NOT GIVE...

God gives to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, and pastors and teachers but he does not give seminary diplomas, ordination papers, or preacher licenses

 

451. The FOOLISH

The foolish virgins are like people who have flashlights with no batteries. In other words, they go to church and talk about going to heaven, but they have made no real plans about it. (Matthew 25: 1-13)

 

452. The SLOTHFUL SERVANT

The slothful servant hid his lord's money because he was going to dig it up later and spend it on himself. (Matthew 25:14-30)

 

453. WAIT NO LONGER

If you are waiting for the temple of God to be rebuilt before the Lord returns, wait no longer. It was rebuilt three days after he died on the cross.

  “Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.” (John 2:18-21)

 

454. LUKEWARM?

Every Christian who knows what is going on in the world cannot be lukewarm.

 

455. ASHAMED?

Babies are not ashamed to be naked, but adults ought to be. (Revelation 3:18)

 

456. JESUS vs. THIEVES

Jesus Christ brought free teaching, preaching, and healing to the temple, but the thieves brought their merchandise.

 

457. PILOT KNEW

Pilot, Herod, and the chief priest kept tabs on things like intelligence agencies do today. And so, Pilate already knew Jesus was the King of the Jews, but found he had no form or beauty about him, and asked in astonished amusement: “Art thou the King of the Jews?”

 

458. SITTING UPON AN ASS

When potentates of this world enter into a city, they may do so on a white horse, in a pope mobile, a tank, a limousine, a plane, or an armored SUV. (Matthew 20:1-18) Contrastingly when the King of this universe entered into Jerusalem, he came “meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.” (Matthew 21:5)

 

459. NEEDS MET

The needs of those who sit at the feet of Jesus Christ are met, even if it takes a miracle as it did in feeding multitudes.

 

460. BE ZEALOUS

When the Lord says to be zealous (Revelation 3:19) does one have a choice? But you say you do not have that type of personality. Well, maybe you are not one of his!

 

461. NOT MUCH

 I have found most people who fly the flag don't read the constitution much and most people who wear a cross don't read the Bible much either.

 

462. WORD NOT HAMPERED

God may use hireling pastors to preach and teach his word, but his word is not hampered by their unbelief.

 

463. HIRED MINISTERS

Hired ministers (John 10:13) do not care for their congregations, because it is just a job like any other job, and...

When the funds are not there,

They make like a hare,

And find employment at another lair.

For when there is little or no pay

They will not stay

But will be “called away”

To secure mammon another way.

 

464. PRISONS

There is a difference between a prison and a ward. Kings of this world have prisons for punishment, in which Joseph, John the Baptist, Peter, John, Paul, and Silas were kept. But under God's law for Israel, people were cast into wards (holding facilities) pending an immediate trial. Then the guilty were punished or fined, but they were not sentenced to prison terms. Prisons, after all, are places to torture people.

 

465. NAME THAT PLANET

The planet we call earth is not capitalized in scripture because it is not its proper name, but it does have spiritual names like Asia, Tiberius, and Patmos

 

466. MOTHER vs. FATHER

Your mother may have taught you to pray, “Now I lay me down to sleep,” but the Lord Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father which art in heaven.”

 

467. 1 NOT 3

God is referred to three times in the Revelation as “one,” but never as three:

 “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” (1:13)

 “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” (4:2)

 “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.” (14:14)

 

468. PAGAN EASTER

Herod did not celebrate Passover because he was an antichrist, and celebrated the pagan holiday Easter instead. (Acts 12:1-4) In the same way, there are those who celebrate Christmas instead of Jesus' Birthday. By the way, Christmas is the merry celebrating of the killing of Jesus Christ, over and over again, in the Roman Catholic Mass - Christ Mass.

 

469. ON PHYSICIANS

If "They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick," (Matthew 9:12) then it is unethical for a physician to see someone who is well.

 

470. The CHURCH IN THEIR HOUSE

You really may not really know what other Christians are really like until you attend the church in their house.

 

471. FLAG WAVERS

Flag wavers wave their flags especially when they have tribulation, and call out for their government to save them unlike Christians who call upon God.

 

472. AGREEMENT WITH IDOLS?

If you are the temple of God, what would you have an agreement with an idol for, as in pledging your allegiance to one? (2 Corinthians 6:16)

 

473. CHRISTIAN WEIGHTLIFTER

Being a fully developed Christian is being like a weight lifter:  there has to be a lot of resistance to develop the right muscles.

 

474. SCHOOL PRAYER

A lot of schools still open the day up in prayer.  They pledge their allegiance to the Flag.

 

475. CLERGYMAN DEFERMENTS

Most clergyman already work for the government.  That's way they get a deferment when there is a draft.

 

476. IDOLATORS

In the first letter of John, he said, "Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." For where there are idols there are idolators.

 

477. GRIEVOUS WOLVES

How do you keep the grievous wolves from entering in? (Acts 20:29)  Answer: The scripture is your only authority.

 

478. INIQUITIES

 

God visits the iniquities of the father’s to the third and fourth generation.  Of course, if God is your Father, there are no iniquities to visit.

 

479. HOW MANY GODS ARE THERE?

The term “God the Father” is used 13 times in scripture, but “God the Son” and “God the Holy Ghost” are never used.  So why do many people use the last two terms?

 

480. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Jesus did not give Pilot or Herod respect because they did not respect him, though they knew who he was.  Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon knew Daniel was a man of God and gave him respect, and Daniel, in turn respected him.

 

481. REAPING HAVOC

If the rulers of this present world don’t respect the kings and priests of God, they will reap havoc.

 

482. WHAT WILL THEY DO?

If people will kill babies in the womb simply because they don’t want to have a baby around, what will they do if they don’t want you and your religion around?

 

483. The MESSENGER

As long as the messenger still has breath, the message can still be given; and the devil surely wants us believers to stop breathing for that reason.

 

484. BEASTLY RELIGION

The number of the beast for state religions is 501(c)3

 

485. ANCIENT PRE-ABORTION

Unwanted children were passed through the fire of Moloch, and because of their small size, the flames would consume all of the body, leaving no evidence behind, no body to bury, and no cemetery to visit.

 

486. SAVE HIS BACON?

Some think Lot was willing to hand over his daughters to the Sodomite mob to save his bacon, but I think he was just trying to get back in the house to get his gun.

 

487. TRODDEN UNDER FOOT

"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."  And that's what the unbelievers will do to you when they don't like your salt anymore.

 

488. RAISING CHILDREN

You either raise a child in the ways of the Lord - or you raise them in the ways of the world.  Your choice.

 

489. WORLD SUPER POWER

To be the Super Power of this world, a nation has to be the super killer, destroyer, and stealer (the attributes of the devil) one way or another, openly or by stealth.  (John 10:10)  Abortion is one of those stealth ways of killing, by the way.

 

490. WHICH FAMILY

Why did the Lord take you out of your natural family and put you into his spiritual family if the natural one was so good?

 

491. FIRST DATE RAPE DRUG

The first date rape drug was alcohol and it was used on Job by his daughters

 

492. PEW POTATOES

Denominational churches are a stage for hypocrites, and every player must play a part – large or small.  Some of the extras get to play pew potatoes.

 

493. GOOD SHEPHERD vs. JUDAS GOAT

If you follow the Good Shepherd, you won’t follow the Judas goat.

 

494. AWAY FROM THE MULTITUDES

The Lord wants to get disciples away from the multitudes on occasion to teach just them.

 

495. YOUR AUTHORITY

The beast is the authority of those who worship the beast, but the authority of believers is the word of God.  Either God’s word is your authority or the devil’s word is your authority.

 

496. The BEAST'S IMAGE

Worship the beast = worship the image.  Worship the image = worship the beast.

 

497. The BIBLE SAYS... NOT

Did you ever notice the people in the Bible never say, "The Bible says..."  After all, Bible is not a Bible word.

 

498. GIVING LIFE TO THE IMAGE

Giving life to the image of the beast is making people talk to it and treat it as if it were a living thing.  You know, it is like pledging your allegiance to - a FLAG.

 

499. YOUR NUMBER

Is the number of the beast the number he has given you, his chattel?

 

500. HARVEST = GLEANING

Where's the harvest of souls in the U.S.?  Looks like the harvest is past and only the gleaning remains to be done.

 

501. THIEVES & ROBBERS

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." (John 10:1) You know, he who climbs the ladder of religious success through college, human ordinations, degrees etc.

 

502. AN EXPRESSION OF GOD'S LOVE

An expression of God’s love is to pray for the whole body of Christ - even those we are not aware of.

 

503. CHURCHES & CEMETERIES

Crosses in churches and crosses in cemeteries have one thing in common.  They both show were the dead are located.

 

504. POOR & BORROWER = SAME SAME

"The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." (Proverbs 22:7) That defines who the bank is and who the countries are that the US borrows money from.

 

505. ASSIGNED ANGELS

If we have an angel assigned to us from the Lord from our births (Matthew 18:10), does the devil have a fallen angel assigned to us too?

 

506. BE PATIENT

God made time, and he can make up time for you personally.

 

507. FIRST NAMES

The apostles were only called by their first names, but today religious leaders have titles to be called by, I guess, because they are more important.

 

508. COMFORTABLE or UNCONFORTABLE

The Holy Ghost Comforter  will make the believers comfortable but the unbelievers uncomfortable.

 

509. NON-PROFIT

Non-profit organizations are full of non-profitable servants.

 

510. HOLLOWED BE THY NAME

If you use the word “Father” with a capital F for anyone other than God, it is no longer a hollowed name.

 

511. ADOPTION

When you are adopted into the Lord’s family, you are adopted OUT of the other.

 

512. CFO (Chief Financial Officer)

Judas Iscariot

 

513. CRUCIFIX MOCKERY

The devil’s boys wanted to make the death of Jesus Christ a spectacle by crucifixion, and mock him today by worshiping the crucifix.

Judas Iscariot was the only person in the scripture who is identified to be possessed by Satan himself.

 

515. YOUR STRENGTH

When you have the joy of the Lord while doing something, it is your strength.  Pursue.

The reason there are many father/son ministries, is when the old man retires, his son can take over the BUSINESS.

 

517. The OLD DEAD YOU

If your natural relatives are fond of bring up the old dead you, instead of the born again you, better forsake them.

 

518. WHO is the GREATEST in the KINGDOM of HEAVEN?

If you ever wondered who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, it is the King, of course; and that certainly excludes anyone else past or present by a long shot.

 

519. FRUIT BASKETS

Men collect in their harvesting baskets the fruit that is important to them.  What do they collect in the baskets at your church?

 

520. ARE YOU IN THE LORD'S CHURCH?

You are either in the Lord’s Church or the Baptist Church, or the Lutheran Church, or the Roman Catholic Church, or the Mormon Church, ad infinitum.

 

521. OXEN & PREACHERS

Like oxen, the preacher that treadeth out the corn is worthy of receiving his necessities, but oxen and preachers aren’t hired.

 

522. HOLY CITY? HOLY LAND?

If the great city Jerusalem, where also our Lord was crucified, is defined by God as Sodom and Egypt, who is calling it today  the Holy City that lies in the Holy Land? (Revelation 11:8)

 

523. GATHERING INTO GOD'S BARN

We are supposed to be gathering the wheat into God's barn, not the Baptist's barn or the Methodist's barn, or the Mormon's barn.

 

524. ONCOLOGISTS & PROPHETS

Some folk are not interested in oncologists until they get cancer; and some folk are not interested in prophets until sin has overtaken their county.

 

525. NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED

All societies are religious.  The Jews had the Pharisees and the Sadducees, while the Americans have the Democrats and Republicans.  Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty.

 

526. SIGNS of a FALSE CHURCH

They receive their authority from man, use religious titles, copyrighted Bible texts, and make classes of clergy and laity.

They practice idolatry of statues, paintings and artifacts, and pledge their allegiance to men, denominations, and flags.

They do not use titles of deity when addressing the Lord Jesus Christ or when invoking his name; nor do they know what the name of the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost is.

They change the sabbath to the first day of the week.

They call those that begot them, and their religious ministers, by the hollowed name of God, and honor the Mother of Harlots.

They advocate, promote, and take sides in wars.

They claim to be members of God’s church, but join themselves to other churches, such as denominations.

They steal, by robbery and stealth, the tithes and offerings, call the building they meet in “the church,” and hire their ministers.

They alter the scriptures a little or a lot, manipulating them to tickle the ears of the hearers and lead them astray.

They are 501(c)3 non-profit corporations, and sell religious items, aids, and services.

BEWARE of WOLVES

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." - Sheepskins = Diplomas

 

527. WHORE HOUSES

The daughters of the Whore of Babylon operate from whore houses today.  It seems like there is one on every corner.

 

528. ON INVESTMENTS

Most people have no problem giving their money to strangers to invest for them, as in a bank or stock market, but they hesitate to invest in the work of God.

 

529. 1ST CALLED CHRISTIANS

The believers were first called Christians because denominations hadn’t been invented by the devil yet. (Acts 11:26)

 

530. 1776

1776 in Roman Numerals = DCCLXXVI. Not only does it include the Roman Numerals that make up Six hundred threescore and six (DCLXVI), but there is a double cross in there too.

 

531. STEPDAUGHTER & NIECE

Herodias’ daughter was not only Herod the tetrarch’s stepdaughter by marriage, she was his niece by blood.

 

532. BAPTISTS ARE JOHN THE BAPTISTS

Ye cannot serve God and mammon, and you can’t follow Christ and the Baptist, as in the followers of “John Baptist” – a name he is called twice in scripture. (Matthew 14:8; Luke 7:20) And you thought the Baptists were Christians… they’re BAPTISTS.

 

533. SPIRITUAL MEALS

The Lord may not give you a multitude to feed a spiritual meal to, but it may have you cook one up for your wife, or children, or your friend. Bon appétit!

 

534. RULED BY GOD OR MEN?

If a people will not be ruled by God they will be ruled by men. LOOK OUT!

 

535. DENOMINATIONS

Denominations are the divisions of the devil which war against God and the body of Christ.

 

536. KEEP YOURSELF FROM IDOLS

"Little children, keep yourselves from idols." (I John) Those lifted up upon a pedestal.

 

537. IN THE SPIRIT

John the apostle wrote in Revelation, “I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day…” Not President’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, or any other holiday.

 

538. THE MOST FAMOUS CONSPIRACY

The respected chief priests of the community sought false witnesses against Jesus; gathered a multitude to demonstrate to have him crucified; and demanded Barabbas, a killer and insurrectionist, released.  Pilate then convicted Jesus of a capital offense because of political pressure, though he said he had done nothing wrong, and had him executed.  After his death, the chief priests paid the garden guards to lie about the resurrection.  (And you don’t think such things happen today?)

 

539. Doggy Biscuits

Satan uses his dollars to train his pups.

 

540. DO AS I DO

Some bosses will tell you to do as they say and not as they do, but the Lord Jesus says do as I do.

541. THE MERRY CHRISTMAS JOKE

Consider the three words that make up “Merry Christmas.”  Well, we all know what merry is and what Christ means, but what about mas, as in the Roman Catholic Mass.  The mass is the celebration of offering Jesus Christ as a sacrifice anew, again and again, thousands of times daily all around the world.  A little picture of Christmas is found in Revelation when the two witnesses, the body of Christ, are killed by the devil’s boys, “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.” And that’s what they did after they crucified the Lord Jesus on the cross – made merry and mocked his last supper.  Don’t let the “Merry Christmas” joke be on you.

 

542. THE LORD'S STICK

The Lord can use the devil like a stick to beat some sense into some and beat the life out of others.

 

543. NO TITLES

The Lord Jesus Christ didn’t call anyone by a religious titles, or secular one for that matter, because he is the only one worthy of titles.

 

545. KILL VS. MURDER

Soldiers don’t kill people, they MURDER people.  Amazing how using “kill” instead of “murder” takes some of the reality sting out of war.

 

546. 9/11

The scripture says heaven is God’s throne and the earth is his footstool.  Looks like he out both feet down on the world trade situation.

 

547. PLAY OR LISTEN

The O.T. unsaved sort in the wilderness sat down to eat and rose up to play.  The N.T. disciples of the Lord sat down to eat and went on to listen to John  Chapters 14-17.

 

548. ON RETIREMENT

If the bad Stewart had been doing a good job, he wouldn’t have to worry about retirement.  The master would have taken care of him.

"... and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them..." That covers the fluoride medicine in your drinking water.

 

549. PURPOSE IN LIFE

Unless we praise the Lord and preach the gospel, we have no purpose in life.

 

550. GREATEST APOSTOLIC WORKS

When did the greatest works of the apostles happen; or when did they sow and water the most? After they were gone to be with the Lord.

 

551. DOCTRINES OF DENOMINATIONS

If you study and adhere to the doctrine of the Baptists, or any denomination, how good of a Christian can you become?

When God finally has had enough he will put his foot down – on his footstool . (Revelation 16:17-19)

 

553. LORD of the SABBATH

The Son of man, Jesus Christ,  is Lord of the sabbath, and the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God.

 

554. DAVID HAD AIDS

555. WHO GOES TO EVERLASTING FIRE?

The devil and his angels of which Judas Iscariot was one of his angels. (Matthew 25:41; John 6:70)

 

556. HOW TO WORSHIP GOD

Keeping the sayings of the book of Revelation (doing them) is worshipping God. (Revelation 22:9)

 

557. IT'S GREEK TO YOU

Some are impressed with the Greek New Testament – a language they do not even speak.  I’m impressed with even the punctuation of the 1611 Authorized Version - the language I do speak.

 

558. GRACE

Do you thank the Lord for your daily bread (the word of God) or do you just eat and run?  Some will thank the Lord for their grub they fill their bellies with when no one's around, but thanking the Lord for a heavenly meal is often forgotten.

 

559. 2 BLASPHEMOUS WORDS

The words "church" and "temple" refer to the Body of Christ in the Christian faith.  To use them as a name of a building is blasphemous.

 

560. SELLING SERVICES

The Lord Jesus didn’t sell us his services.  On the other hand, merchants sell their things and services. You know, the ones down at the church property.

 

561. AIDING & ABETTING THE ENEMY

Paul in his pre-Christian denominational days was aiding and abetting the enemy though he didn’t know it.  "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." - Revelation

 

562. GOVERNMENTS ARE RELIGIOUS

All governments are religious.  Some are dominated by one religion, and others are multi-religious like the USA and ancient Egypt.  But they are never dominated by the true faith.

 

563. WINDY CITY ZIP 60606

The Windy City's Zip Code is 60606 (Chicago).  Take away the zeros that stand for nothing, and you get the prince of the power of the air's number - 666. (Ephesians 2:2)

 

564. RULE of LAW

The rule of law is promoted by those who will not be ruled by God.

 

565. FRILLS vs. THRILLS

The Word of God has no frills - just thrills.

 

566. CROSS CHRISTIANITY

When you mix Christianity up with another religion, you come up with a CROSS. You know... the critters with the sun god brand.

 

567. ON SOCIAL SECURITY

The Egyptians had to sell themselves to Pharaoh to get back the food they had gathered for the government to store for them.  What do you have to give the government to get your Social Security money back?

 

568. WICKED SPIRITS

The synagogue that had the unclean spirit in the beginning of Mark’s gospel was cast out.  And since the synagogue didn’t convert over to Jesus Christ, however, the unclean spirit would have come back again with seven other spirits more wicked than himself.

 

569. BALONEY CHURCHES

Churches that are full of baloney are signed up with the state so they can see if their baloney meets their master's tastes.

 

570. UNBELIVER'S INNER MAN

The unbeliever’s outward man perishes, but his inner man is renewed day by day - and refined.  Look out!

 

571. NO CHARGE

God hath anointed us to preach the Gospel to the poor; therefore, we cannot charge them  or hire out because they have no money to pay us.

 

572. YAHSHUA?

If Jesus’ name is Yahshua, you’d think the word of God would point that out.

 

573. ON PRESIDENTS...

Daniel was one of three presidents in the Babylonian Empire, and obviously a righteous man of the Lord, putting godly principles above his presidency.  What president today has the like reputation

 

574. EASTER BUNNY

Your parents may have told you about the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Good Fairy, and maybe Jesus Christ.  But when you found out it wasn’t true about the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Good Fairy, the logical deduction was it wasn’t true about Jesus Christ.

 

575. CHRISTAIN DIET = THE BLT

BELIEVE, LEARN, TEACH

 

576. DEFINITION OF "TARE"

tare n : spiritual GMO

 

577. PROPERTY TAX

If “the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof,” who is taxing property?  The owner?  Nope.  The one who stole it.  Of course that is a temporary situation until the owner takes his property back. Look out!

 

578. MEDICINE & OCCULTISM

WARNING! The medical profession is infused with occultism. USE WITH CAUTION!

Hippocratic Oath

Asclepius

Caduceus

 

579. WORLD SUPERPOWER = SUPERKILLER

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

 

580. I CORINTHIANS 13

Charity is not selling your ministerial insight to the church.

 

581. DESTROYERS

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.

 

582. NON-PROPHET

Non-profit corporate churches are also Non-prophet.

 

583. NONPROFIT CHURCHES

Nonprofit churches, 501(C)3 tax exempt, are State Churches and follow the agenda of the State.

 

584. The WHORE CHURCH

The place were religious buying and selling goes on.  Even the hiring of ministers.

 

585. WHICH JERUSALEM?

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem..."  Which one? The old Jerusalem in Israel, or the new Jerusalem we read about in Revelation which is the body of Christ?

 

586. The BIG BANG THEORY

"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."  Talk about thunderous BIG BANG!

 

587. CROSS BRED RELIGION

When you mix Christianity with another religion or doctrine, such as Baptists, you come up with a cross (+) - a cross bred religion.

 

588. BEING USED BY WHOM?

You cannot serve God and mammon.  So, who are you being used by? God or mammon.  It’s one or the other.

 

589. PROPHECY TO A FEW

Prophets may only prophecy to a few, such as their wives or children, but they are prophets nevertheless.

 

590. I MUST DECREASE

John the Baptist said about the Lord Jesus Christ, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”  It’s just happens naturally, though it doesn’t look like it with those super star/mega church preachers. Maybe they aren’t his.

 

591. SIGNS OF A FALSE CHURCH

1.  They receive their authority from man, use religious titles, copyrighted Bible texts, and make classes of clergy and laity.

2.  They practice idolatry of statues, paintings and artifacts, and pledge their allegiance to men, denominations, and flags.

3.  They do not use titles of deity when addressing the Lord Jesus Christ or when invoking his name; nor do they know what the name of the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost is.

5.  They call those that begot them, and their religious ministers, by the hollowed name of God, and honor the Mother of Harlots.

8.  They steal, by robbery and stealth, the tithes and offerings, call the building they meet in “the church,” and hire their ministers.

9.  They alter the scriptures a little or a lot, manipulating them to tickle the ears of the hearers and to lead astray.

10. They are 501(c)3 non-profit corporations, and sell religious items, aids, and services.

 

592. NO REPITLES, FISH, BACTERIA, OR BUGS

Evidently there are no reptiles, fish, bacteria, or bugs in heaven.  Now that's something to chew on - or not chew on.

 

593. EVERY REASON BUT ONE

The preacher on the radio said he heard every reason why people chose not to go to his church - except one, I bet.  The abomination that makes desolate is there as in most church buildings.

 

594. GO

"Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you." (John 20:21)  You get peace when you are sent and then go.

 

595. WHOSE CHURCH?

Do you go to God's church or __________'s church.  You can go to one or the other but not to both.

 

596. TAX FREE MONEY

Jesus said the temple operation was a den of thieves, so Judas, a thief, knew where to go to earn some tax free money.

 

597. WHO'S YOUR TEACHER?

You have a choice who your primary teacher is.  The Lord Jesus Christ or someone else.

 

598. The BAPTISMS

Baptism in water for the physical body, and baptized in the Spirit for the spiritual body.

 

599. STUMBLING BLOCKS

The Nicolaitanes, Baptists, and Methodists are stumbling blocks to the word of God.

 

600. STALIN WOULD BE PROUD

To the politicians 20 first graders shot dead at a school is a tragedy, but 50,000,000 murdered in the womb is just a statistic.  Stalin would be proud of such thinking. (Satan too.)

 

601. EVIL TREND

The Pharisees and Sadducees were named after men, and so were the Nicolatanes, which was the beginning of an evil trend.

 

602. STATE CHURCHES = STATE MINISTERS

State churches are the ones signed up with with the state to conduct "non-profit" corporate religious business. (501(c)3) Of course their ministers must be state ministers as well.

 

603. 1+1=1

"I and my Father are one."  Jesus Christ + Father = 1

 

604. FEED MY SHEEP

If you love the Lord feed his sheep; and if you don’t love the Lord, don’t feed his sheep!

 

605. EXPORTS

We are ministers where the Lord has put us, and the husbandman can export our fruit somewhere else if he wants.

 

606. TO KNOW OR NOT TO KNOW

If you do not read/hear the word of God, you don’t know what is going on, or what to do, or what love is, or how to love.

611. U THE PASTOR?

If your wife were your church and you were the pastor, would you treat her any differently?

 

612. WHY TV = IDIOT BOX?

If you don't know the answer, that probably explains a lot right there.

Old Jerusalem, where the Lord Jesus was crucified, is the city of sinners.  The New Jerusalem, from above, is the city of saints.

621. HYBRID CHRISTIANITY

Hybrid Christianity displays a cross because they have crossed Christianity with another religion.  You know, Baptist with Christianity, Catholicism with Christianity, Methodism with Christianity.

 

622. ABOMINATION REVELATION

They turned the ministry of God into a business.

 

623. MISSION FIELD

628. BUILDING BIGGER CLOSETS?

Don't bother.  The stuff you got in there now is ugly, too small, or eaten by moths.

 

629. COPYRIGHTED BIBLES

God doesn’t  have to worry about  copyrighting  his word because he is perfectly capable of preserving it himself. "The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." - Psalms

639. SATAN’S HOUSE = DIVIDED

Satan’s house cannot stand because his family members all have a rebellious nature – one against the other.

 

640. BEWARE THE AMA

Since the American Medical Association supports abortion, one would be well to keep that fact in mind when dealing with them.  You may be next on their list of their murderous operations to perform purely for the almighty dollar.

 

641. The SINNER'S PRAYER?

Who in the scripture ever prayed “The Sinner’s Prayer”?  None that I can see.  But they did repent and were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to be saved.

 

642. PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORIES

People ought to take notes when they read the Bible and hear from God, but many think they have a photographic memory, and maybe they do – but there’s no film in the camera!

 

643. GLOBAL WARMING

Al Gore is right about Global Warming.  It is going to get as hot as hell for those who don't know the Lord.  A very inconvenient truth. (2 Peter 3:11-12)

 

644. BEWARE THE DENOMINATIONS

The Lord Jesus said to beware of the leaven, the hypocrisy, of the  Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians: the denominations of the day.

647. HAIL MARY CONTRADITION

648. TAXES

654. LUTHERANS

Lutherans follow Martin Luther but not the Lord Jesus Christ.  (It's either one or the other.)

 

655. FILTHY LUCRE

Almost nobody thinks about how dirty money is.  People with contagious diseases handle it and hand it to you; and there is poop and piss on it, boogers, blood and drugs, and whatever you can think of.  I guess it is because most people think their money is near and dear to them, it couldn’t be harmful.

 

656. ABORTION = INFANTICIDE

According to the word of God, a pregnant woman has a baby in her womb. “The babe leaped in my womb. “ (Luke 1:44)

 

657. ONE THING NOT TO DO

We are only to wash the other guys feet - not give him a  big bath.

 

658. The GOOD PASTOR

The good pastor giveth the word to the sheep - but he does not sell it.

 

659. NOT RELATED

If preachers who sell books and CD’s give them freely to their friends and relatives, why don’t they give them freely to the family of God? Answer: Not related.

 

660. A BONUS BACK

When the disciples fed the multitude the loaves and fishes, they not only fed themselves, but got a bonus back in baskets of bread.  When you feed the flock the supernatural word of God, (even your household) you not only feed yourself, but you get a supernatural bonus back from the Lord as well.

 

661. WOMEN RULERS

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.

Get the picture?  (By the way, did you notice these are the seven heads of the beast?)

 

666. The SUPERPOWER OF THE DEVIL

The superpower of the devil is the one who steals, kills, and destroys the most.

You get who you deserve.

 

669. DEFINE "WAR"

War = War Against God

 

670. LOVE YOUR BROTHER?

If you loved your brother, you wouldn't sell him your ministerial CD's or books.  You'd want to freely give them to edify, exhort, and comfort him.

 

671. LUKEWARM CHURCHES

Lukewarm churches get along with most everyone as they are not a threat to the kingdom of darkness.

 

672. TEN COMMANDMENTS OF PRAYER

God is omniscient and omnipresent, but the devil's boys are not - so they must SPY SPY SPY.

 

676. The BEAST MAKES FIRE COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

 

678. REMEMBERING MORE OFTEN

Not only can you remember the Lord when partaking of the Lord's Supper, but whenever you eat any meal. When eating the food, "This is my body which is given for you." When drinking the beverage, "This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you."

 

678. ABORTION

Turning mothers into monsters.

 

679. WHO'S GOT THE GOLD?

Things have gone from the Gold Standard to the Silver Certificate to the Federal Reserve Note to Digital Impulse Money.  Who's got the Gold?

 

680. HEALTHY? NO DOCTOR NEEDED

If it is unwise for you to go to a doctor if you are not sick, as “They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick,”  then it is unethical for a doctor to see you if you are healthy.

 

681. AT PEACE OR WAR?

Are you at peace with the beast or war with the whore?  It is one or the other.

 

682. The CHOSEN PEOPLE OF GOD

Are the Jews the "chosen people of God" or are the chosen people of God those who are saved and are going to get saved - Jew or Gentile?

 

683. BABYLON VS. NEW JERUSALEM

Babylon is the city of the sinners and New Jerusalem is the city of the saints.  For which do you have citizenship?

You gave your pup a name because you loved him:  not a DOG TAG and number like some piece of chattel to keep track of.

 

685. RELIGIOUS PROSTITUTE

Hired preacher.

 

686. PRO-HOMOSEXUALITY?

U tried it. U like it.

 

687. PAYING TAXES

You only pay taxes to those who have conquered you.

 

688. FREDRICK DOUGLAS vs. JESUS CHRIST

Disciples of Fredrick Douglas, “Agitate, agitate, agitate!”

689. LONG LASTING TREND

Cain, the first murderer, started the first city, and was the ruler of it.  I guess he started a long lasting trend.

 

690. NO-SALT DIET

The Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians were on a no-salt diet.  (Of course you will only get that one if you read your Bible that has lots of salt in it.)

 

691. CRUCIFIXION & CRUCIFIXES

The crucifixion was a dirty job but somebody had to do it; as somebody had to make the crucifixes to advertise they had done the deed.

 

692. STEWARD YOUR WIFE

Think of being the steward of God in regards to your wife, as one should think of being the steward of God for your child.

 

693. SAME FAMILY

Why did the chief priests want Barabbas released instead of Jesus?  Barabbas was a murderer, robber, and seditionist like themselves.  He came from the same family.

 

694. WHICH SPIRIT DO YOU HAVE?

You either have the spirit of truth, Jesus Christ, or you have the spirit of the lie, Satan.

 

695. The LAST DAY

The resurrection is at the last day, so the vials of wrathful judgment takes place on that day also.  How long is the judgment of God? Jesus Christ had God’s wrath put on him in our place for six hours. Do the math. And then eternity without God begins.  Are you ready to meet the Lord?

 

696. SYNAGOGUE vs. CHURCH

Synagogue = Jew's building or congregation

Church = Christian's congregation only

If you call a building a church, whose church do you belong to?

 

697. PHARISEES, SADDUCEES, HERODIANS = DENOMINATIONS

 “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

 

698. DO IT TODAY!

699. The WORLDLY GOVERNMENT

The first thing the New Testament reveals about the worldly government (Herod the Great) is it is anti-Christ and a killer of children.

WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTIION

704. WHO DO YOU SERVE?

If you are not in the kingdom of God where God is your King,  then whose kingdom are you in and who do you serve?  It’s one or the other, folks.

 

705. DANIELS TODAY?

Daniel of Lion Den fame in the Bible was one of the three presidents in the Babylonian Empire.  What president is a Daniel today?

707. DEAR AL GORE...

The Law of the Land has now become the Law of the Jungle.

 

709. CHRISTIAN GEOGRAPHY

711. US VERSES THEM

"Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them." II Kings 6:16

 

712. LEGAL & ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Of course the devil’s boys are for legal and illegal immigration – for them it’s all about amassing human resources.

 

713. Oxy- MORONIC

Jewish Atheism

 

714. HUMAN BEING VS. HUMAN RESOURCE

Think about it.

 

715. IT’S ANOTHER OxyMORONIC

Same-sex marriage

 

715. WORRIED ABOUT FLUORIDE?

Worried about fluoride in your water? "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them..."

 

716. Dear Homeland inSecurity...

“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” (Psalm 127:1)

 

717. GOING TO THE DOCTOR

Going to the doctor when you’re not sick is like taking your car to the mechanic when there is nothing wrong with it and asking him to find something wrong. “They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.”

 

718. ZERO

The number of Christian spiritual advisers to kings and presidents in the Bible.

 

719. SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN

A synagogue that has rejected the Messiah Jesus Christ.

 

720. The TRUTH

The truth is in the Bible - not in Washington D. C..

 

721. EXTRA TERRESTRIALS?

Yep.  All the devils are extra-terrestrials.

 

722. HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGES

The only reason the Gubment will allow homosexual marriage is to find out who their significant other is for surveillance purposes.

 

723. The RELIGION OF HIRED AND PAID

When Judas Iscariot left the Ministry of Jesus Christ, he went to where his heart was: the religion where he could get hired and paid for his services.

 

724. EARLY TALENTS

Hitler was a message runner in World War I for the German Army, and as an adult he was a message runner for the devil; therefore, you may use those early talents you developed later on for the devil or for God, depending on which side of the battle you’re on.

 

725. JUDAS WAS THE ONLY ONE

Judas Iscariot is the only person we know who was possessed by Satan himself, and not the chief priest, not king Herod, nor Pilate the governor.  He was picked for the job too.

 

726. WAR

In all wars, all sides are fighting against God, and all sides will loose.

 

727. NAPOLEON KNEW SOME THINGS

"Do you know what astonished me most in the world? The inability of force to create anything. In the long run, the sword is always beaten by the spirit." - Napoleon Bonaparte

 

728. SPEAK THE SAME THING

For everyone in the church to speak the same thing, they must all have the same one and only authority - the Word of God.

I Corinthians 1:10

Herod the Great killed his own in the Bethlehem area, and Kings and Presidents kill their own today in abortions.

 

732. CHURCHES WHO HIDE SCANDALS

It’s reported that the Catholics have hidden pedophile activity by their priests, much in the same way the Protestants have hid their pedophile missionaries – just send them somewhere else rather than their church be scandalized.  Whole denominations have the same mentality when it comes to one of their churches going homosexual: they don’t do anything or say anything because it would scandalize them and/or bring lawsuits.

 

733. WHO CAN YOU TRUST

Hitler killed 6,000,000 Jews, Mao Zedong 30,000,000 of his own citizens, and in America 50,000,000 babies have been killed in the womb by their moms, dads, and doctors.  Who can you trust?

 

734. WHAT’S THE NAME?

Most churches only recite the commandment to baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost, but they don’t do it and don’t know what the name (singular) is.  It’s Jesus Christ.

 

735. CONGRESS

Just some more gladiators in Caesars coliseum of political entertainment.

 

736. MONEY'S GOT IT ALL

Image, mark, name, number.

 

738. 501(c)3
