When The Bottom Falls Your Boat
If God were speaking to you today,
would you hear him? Will you heed the gentle pleadings of the Holy
Spirit? Or wil God have to take the bottom out of your boat and
leave you to bobble in the water while out in the deep seas of
todays deceptive world before you begin to listen to what he is
telling you? What are you going to do when the bottom falls out of
your boat because you failed to heed the word of the Lord?
Many American Christians are not heeding God. They are playing a
game of "Plastic Christianity" and doing all in their power to
live the American dream. Christ runs a distant second in their
list of priorities. They make a lot of noise about how they love
God while they sit in Church, but their daily lives belie their
true love. It is for the things
of this world
and the pleasures
of this life
When God sends people along who are truly
the world, these plastic Christians reject the true man of God
because they do not emanate those material (big house nice car,
expensive clothes) and sexual trappings (good looks, pretty face,
blond hair, cuteness in a bathing suit) that marks them as worldly
successes. In short, these false believers want to be loved by the
world. As a Christian do you know how I know when I am walking
right with God? When lost souls ask me why so-and-so (who is an
unrepentant adulterer and drunkard) doesn't like me or Joey Smith
who is a drug addict and unrepentant liar 'doesn't like to be
around me'. When I hear this, I know I am in the right company...
away from them. It is not that I preach and start 'bible thumping'
to these kinds of people but having walked with Christ a long
time, I know that there is often an unseen deep, spiritual factor
kinds of things. Like a magnet with a north pole and south pole
you cannot see the magnetic activity other than in the attraction
and repulsion of the magnetic currents. The devils children
usually (unless God is dealing with their hearts) are not going to
want to spend time much around a true child of God. They will
often mock and even blaspheme God when the man or woman of God
leaves the room and snicker behind their back as many have done
with me. They mock and laugh at me because I am dedicated to Jesus
Christ. They are dedicated to the prince of this world and serve
him and his kingdom and receive his financial rewards for doing
so. Such service requires that in order to save face with other
servants of mammon (to keep the money flowing), they have to 'join
in' and mock real Christians and talk about them behind their
backs, so they are not considered 'like' the true man of God to
other children of darkness.
King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Do you know what a true Born Again believer is? He is an
ambassador. What happens when a king sends an ambassador and is
insulted? The injured party often seeks redress and even can start
a war. When you mock an ambassador, you mock the king who sent
him. The very few
here in America who are truly born again and
are walking in
the light and are acting
as ambassadors for Christ.
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may
speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's
stead, be ye reconciled to God.
But me? I will serve Christ and not be ashamed of the gospel.
These lost souls who hate God and love to make sport of Christ's
servants while faking Christian conversion, what are they but
another future resident of hell.
But nominal Christians are hardly any better. They may not mock
and blaspheme but they would much rather spend time with worldly
people who can help them gain more of the American dream rather
than with time with those who can help them gain entry into the
Kingdom of God. No, in truth the spirit they love is the Spirit of
this world, which is the devil.
Over and over again I have seen this spirit. What did Christ say?
As usual he makes no room for re-interpretation. He is crystal
clear. He words show up the FALSE CHRISTIANITY out there in the
west for what it really is.
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it
Marvel not, my brethren, if
the world hate you.
Why is false Christianity increasingly loved by the world, its
Global institutions and is even now a place where the President
and makes his political show
? Because the world loves this kind of
Christianity because it is not of God but of its true
spiritual father, the devil. Why is fundamental Christianity being
mocked and derided the world over, its servants often killed and
slaughtered? Because the world hates Christ's true people
who have been born from above and share the divine inheritance.
Our lives and doctrine testify of the world that its deeds are
The false Christian leaders? We have had a major Global
'christian' leader Archbishop
hell if God does not allow gay marriage
! So I say to each of
you, be most careful about Christian leaders who are given key
awards and Nobel Prizes by this evil world system. Those who
'pick' the winners are often have an agenda that runs 180 degrees
opposite than God's. Do you know how I look at the Nobel
Peace Prize? I see it as the Satanic Service Prize. Henry
(terrorist) won and evenHitler
!! Serve the devil and get his 'peace prize' so
in the future, consider
these things about Nobel Laureates
and weather you wish to
accept it or not, there is a very, very 'swastika inspired' agenda
behind these things, unseen to those who are not looking and do
not know what to look for.
The satanic gospel testifies that sin is good and should be
blessed, not rebuked by the Church - a doctrine only Satan's
The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of
it, that the works thereof are evil.
Why are fake Churches loved of the
world? Because they do not testify that the works of this world
Therefore the world loves them and gives them
space in the media and Presidential inaugurals as well as Nobel
More and more Christians are confused by the world and the goings
on in the 'church' and become confused about sound doctrine and
enticed by the devils promises, lies and illusions.
For many a time of great trial and testing will come. I
suspect it will come in many a life here in the US when their
material possessions are taken from them when they lose their jobs
and cannot make the payments on the stuff they already (think)
they own. I think God is going to look out for those who are
serving him in spirit and in
if we heed him now (and learn to downsize and live
humbly) and let the the fake ones flounder in poverty for a few
years until they learn to either serve and truly
trust God or
stop making pretenses about it and flock to their first love, the
devil. Christ wants us either hot or cold.
For many they will simply fall away. They will cease to believe
God and run after the devil and the dollar bill. For others, they
will re-examine their lives and allow themselves to be re-directed
by God, in humble faith. I think this process has already started,
but has not begun in earnest in much of the western world.
So I ask all of the Lukewarm out there about the coming trails
come upon the
earth - what are you going to do if the bottom falls out of your
boat? Will you listen
to Christ who tells you to leave all of your belongings behind
grab hold of his hand or will you hold on to your trinkets and
sink with them? Which do you love more?
We will find out when the bottom falls out of the bottom of the
boats of millions of nominal Christians. My hope is that they
emulate Job, who even though he was living right (unlike so many
Christians today) he continued on with his love and service to God
in the midst of his very great trial.
Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head,
and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked
came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return
thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed
be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor
charged God foolishly. - (Job 1:20-22)
In the end God doubly
blessed Job when his trial was over. It is my hope that this will
be the attitude of many Christians when the bottom falls out of
their boat. That they get back to the basics, and press on towards
Christ Jesus and lay hold of eternal life embodied in his person
and work and look upon the trappings of this world as dung
recently fallen out of the south end of a bull.
things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea
doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of
the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered
the loss of all things, and do
count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be
found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the
law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the
righteousness which is of God by faith:
Let us get a spiritual clue, understand what is important and what
is crap in our lives. Put Christ first, obey his voice and you
shall never be moved.
What we need is some Christians who
will stand up...
In Defense OF Fundamentalism
In today's morass of moral
relativism the word fundamentalism has become a bad word. God
gives us some commands to follow, some fundamental
things to do and not to do and some
non-Christians as well as some false ones call this a bad thing.
They criticize not only the rules and commandments Christ laid
down, but by extension the maker of the rules as well, that being
God. Fundamentalism is merely holding to fundamental beliefs. That
Christ died, was raised from the dead will judge the living and
the dead according to the word Christ gave to mankind in the
Gospels. Christ who was the living embodiment of God in the flesh.
Yet to hear some speak, fundamentalism is a bad thing. What are
they really saying? That God should not be taken at his word, that
he is a liar and will not keep his promises to both reward and
punish mankind according to their deeds. Basic fundamental
It is in a world where the devil is doing all in his power to
destroy the simple morality and truths that Christ taught to his
apostles that we find such thinking. What saith the scriptures?
Beloved, while I was giving all diligence to write
unto you of our common salvation, I was constrained to write
unto you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the
faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints.
What Jude was saying here is that we must earnestly contend for
the faith and its basic FUNDAMENTAL principles, not in a
legalistic, Pharisee kind of way but in a way that submits itself
to the Gospel that has been delivered unto us, his saints, Neither
adding to nor taking away from the power of its simple divinely
imparted message. In short, legalism is bad, but fundamentalism is
not only good, it is essential
for genuine salvation for without the fundamental, salvation
truths of the Gospel, there is no hope of salvation.
One of the most basic and important spiritual battles taking place
today is the battle between luciferian moral relativism and Gods
holy commandments (moral absolutism tempered with forgiveness for
the penitent). The devil has always done all he could to do away
with God's commandments, nullify and denigrate them. That is his
job, to lead mankind astray. How can we identify that spirit? It
seeks to undermine the fundamental (there is that word again)
truths of the Bible and the teachings and revelations of Jesus
Christ. Brothers, when Christ judges us, he judges us by our works
and our obedience
to Christ and his
commandments. You want to talk about love? The person who obey's
Christ commandments, that is the one who loves him (John 14:21).
The deep connection between love and obedience are FUNDAMENTAL
doctrines that exist throughout the scripture (John 14:15; 14:31;
15:9-10; 15:12; 15:17 1John 15:2-3; 2John 6). The whole idea of
Love stems from God's holy commandments. Fundamental commandments
of which the most important is loving the brotherhood of faith.
Those are your brothers if indeed you have been born again.
Because you belong to a new family. how did Christ put it?
But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who
is my mother? and who are my brethren?And he stretched forth his hand
towards his disciples, and said, Behold, my mother and my
brethren!For whosoever shall do the will
of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister,
and mother. - (Matthew 12:48-50_
Lost souls are not
spiritual brothers of a born again man or woman of God. Lost souls
belong to the Children of disobedience (Eph 2:2), another
spiritual family, antithetical to Christ's kingdom. This does not
mean that they are to ever be mistreated. They too are to be
loved, but in a different fashion with very different obligations.
Rather, the profound obligations of spiritual brotherhood do not
apply to those outside of the body of Christ. For example, the
scriptures say we are to confess our sins to one another. The
scriptures did not mean to every lost soul, satanist, mobster,
blackmailer or sinner, but to other
brothers in Christ
who share the same family,
inheritance, struggles and temptations. We are to be knitted
together in love with the brotherhood of faith. How did Paul put
For I would have you know how greatly I strive for you,
and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my
face in the flesh; that their hearts may be comforted, they
being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full
assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of
God, even Christ, in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and
knowledge hidden. (Colossians 2:1-3)
It is also why we must be most careful about who we fellowship
with. Light cannot share the same room with darkness and a good
man has no business dining at the devils table. THIS IS ESPECIALLY
TRUE TO THOSE IN MINISTRY. So brothers, take heed who you take
into your confidence. Those family members and friends who do not
know Christ can be a serious danger to your walk if they are not
kept a safe distance. You are on a battlefield
treachery is just one of satan's many tools to he uses to attack
and destroy the sons of God. You who are wise and mature in the
the Lord understand what I mean, especially in these dangerous
The godly man is perished out of the earth, and there is
none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they
hunt every man his brother with a net.Their hands are upon
that which is evil to do it diligently; the prince asketh, and
the judge is ready for a reward; and the great man, he
uttereth the evil desire of his soul: thus they weave it
together.The best of them is as a brier; the most upright is
worse than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen, even thy
visitation, is come; now shall be their perplexity. Trust ye not
in a neighbor; put
ye not confidence in a friend; keep the
doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.For the son dishonoreth the
father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the
daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are
the men of his own house. (Micah 7:2-6)
And brother shall deliver
up brother to death, and the father his child; and children
shall rise up against parents, and cause them to be put
to death. And
ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but
he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved. (Mark
Be not unequally yoked with
unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and
iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness?
(2 Cor 6:14)
Lost souls have a different father and when things get really
rough for them and the pressure is on, their true character
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the
beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no
truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father thereof. (John 8:44)
These are times when those of us who hold the commandments of
Christ are going to be called names. Get used to it because it
goes downhill from here on out. Today it is 'fundamentalist',
tomorrow, it will be 'dangerous religious cult', the day after
that 'enemy of the state' or 'terrorist'. So let us be under no
illusions about where these trends are heading. We Christians and
our faith are constantly under assault, especially in media and of
course in much of the Islamic world.
Let us all take notice here that the scriptures do not say those
who make up the most morally relativistic excuses for not
following Christ's commandments are the ones who are going to be
saved, or those create a new dogma based on a new 'totally hip'
moral relativism and going to be saved, but those who DO THE
COMMANDMENTS of Jesus Christ; they are the ones who love the Lord
and will be saved. Beware of those who say they love God and then
go and teach that Christ's commandments are not important or are
only for those 'fundamentalists' and that they have some new
Let none of those who love our Lord forget these things and let us
not shrink from the word 'fundamentalism' It is fast becoming a
label the devil wants to use against those who hold fast to the
commandments of Jesus Christ.
Me? I will hold to the commandments of Jesus Christ...
fundamentally. If the world wants to be damned, that is their
business and choice, I cannot stop them. I can only preach the
gospel to them, and if they receive it Praise the Lord!! That is
my new 'baby brother', if not, I get up, shake the dust off my
feet and press on!! For many are called, few are chosen (Matt
So when someone asks me if I am a fundamentalist I simply say that
if by that you mean that I hold to the FUNDAMENTAL truths of the
scripture, I respond yes. If by that you mean I am a member of the
religious right here in America that seeks to impose my beliefs on
others with political force, I would answer no. It is very
important that we understand what words mean and not let the
devil's labels get us down. Labeling
is a well known propaganda technique.
We Christians are to
LIVE the fundamental truths of the gospel, not try and force lost
souls to live them. Our job is to live it and preach it, not force
it on others, a practice many understandably find offensive. The
Church is to live those truths and adhere to them in its
doctrines. What the world does its own business and what the true
'called out ones' of God - the Church does, is the business of the
Church. This is one of the important part of the separation of
Church and state that many miss. The government needs to stay out
of Church affairs.
I am not ashamed of the label fundamentalist in a world of so
called Christians who have forsaken the teachings of the Bible and
have made up their own imaginary Jesus that tells them that
unscriptural divorce is OK, abortion is OK, fornication is OK,
mass murder is OK (if the victims have dark skin and can't speak
English), lying is OK, sodomy is OK, hate is OK, selfishness is OK
or judging (rather than helping) the poor and homeless is OK.
Looking at the morality of this new morally relativist 'Jesus' you
get a better understanding for who and what this imaginary Jesus
really is that these false ministers are preaching. They have
given heed to deceiving spirits.
They are merely preaching the devil who happens to be wearing his
very popular and 'super cool' Jesus disguise. He loves to tell
people to keep on sinning, no need to repent God and that does not
require you to change our ways. This is the heart and soul of the
Don't fall for it.
