It’s snowing hard outside as I type these words of amazement in that hardly any activity has gone on in my YouTube channel. I had deleted all the controversial videos and kept only the ones that pertain to salvation by faith in Jesus Christ, as well as my flat earth videos and trips to the park. Needless to say, many people have neither the time nor the interest in such topics.
In general, people enjoy sin. We are all sinners by nature so we tend to gravitate towards sinful vice. Some can’t get enough of it. They literally worship sin. As for me, however, even though I am a sinner, I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, and I intend my life to be lived for Him alone. That is why I post the Way to salvation in Jesus Christ. It’s both a duty and a pleasure to serve the King of kings.
Satan is a liar and a thief, but he is the god of this world. Yet he is not God Almighty so he is not omnipresent, or omniscient, or all-powerful as God is. But here is a fact that blows my mind. Both Satan and God work together to bring about God’s will in the earth and in the world. They work so closely together that you can’t tell any difference.
The will of God shall be manifested because God’s promises are sure, and Satan is God’s unwilling servant to bring about what will happen in the world today. It sounds incredible and I am still chewing on that one. But it makes perfect sense, because both God and Satan are the two most powerful beings in creation, and God is the One Whose will is being brought to pass as foretold in the Bible. Through it all, God is the Victor.
We are in the last days, even the final hours of God’s timetable. God is allowing Satan to work in diverse ways because we have abandoned God’s laws and we’ve accepted Satan’s rule. But God already knew this would happen. Be assured, friend, that God will always have the final word, even though Satan hates Him and His children and must obtain permission from God to afflict us. But since the world no longer regards the Almighty, He has given the world over to the Devil.
We must choose as individuals whether to serve God or Satan. Our nation may be lost as a whole, but Jesus Christ is still saving souls through the preaching of His Word in the church that is still on the earth. As long as you are reading these words, you still have time to get saved. When we are raptured out, the Great Tribulation will commence and Satan will at last have his way with the wicked world. They will welcome the Antichrist with open arms and for seven years he will be the way that Satan uses to drag billions of unsaved souls to Hell. What a horrible thought, that the son of perdition will be hailed as the messiah of peace. We truly are sinful wretches deserving only of Hell fire, every one of us.
I plead with you today, friend. Get saved while you still have a chance. Things are not going to get better. The world is waxing worse and worse and worse until only the Prince of peace, the Lord Jesus Christ, will come and set all things in order. The New World Order is not the way to peace. The Antichrist will offer a false peace then he will show his true self and kill, steal and destroy countless souls. Do not be deceived in these final hours. You can still become a child of God while the Word is still in the world. Don’t wait any longer to be saved. Tomorrow may be too late. I beg you. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved, and thy house.
I found out YouTube has a new invention. If you live stream a video, you can pay to have your chat window displayed in the ticker for a certain amount of time. “Insane” is what came to my mind. This, I believe, is vanity and foolishness of the highest degree.
It amazes me how selfish we are. While people are dying overseas in plagues and starvation, while teen girls are murdering their unborn babies in abortions, while people stay zonked out on filthy TV sitcoms like “Family Guy,” we now have this new method to get your ugly mug on the chat screen, but for a price. I tell you, this country is headed for the dust. America is not great any longer, and Trump can’t make it great again without the whole nation coming back to God. Nobody cares about anyone but themselves. That’s the New World Order for you, ALL ABOUT SELF!!
People are looking for the Antichrist to come, anxiously awaiting his imminent arrival. They even have saved a spot for him in seat number 666 in the European Parliament. Hardly anyone is waiting for the Lord Jesus Christ to come and catch the Christians out of this evil world. Even fewer are preaching the true Gospel, trying to reach these lost, even pulling them out of the fire, hating the very garment spotted by the flesh. No, the churches are asleep, content in their wicked prosperity gospel and love having their ears tickled and backs scratched instead of hearing blistering preaching and hard core truth from the mighty two-edged sword that is Word of God, while unsaved souls drop down into Hell every second of every day that goes by.
This world will very soon pass away with a great noise, and only the few that are truly saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ will be spared from the powerful, consuming wrath of God Almighty. Where will your selfish vanities take you then? To Hell!!
There is only one way out of this awful world system, but it’s for free. It costs you nothing, but it cost Jesus Christ His life. The Lord Jesus Christ freely offers you the gift of eternal life. He died on the cruel cross, was buried and raised again on the third day by the mighty power of God, because He loves you and doesn’t want your soul to perish in eternal fire. This is the true Gospel, the Good News, that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO HELL!
God is not willing that anyone should perish. He does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked. On the contrary, He wants to have an intimate, personal relationship with you that will last for eternity. You will become a new creature in Christ, and you will be a child of God. You must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved from Hell. If you do not believe, you will surely die in your sins. See this page to find out how to be born again.
…and then it will be deleted. I’m sure all you God haters out there will be glad to see it go. Too bad, but I will continue to preach and expose today’s evils, because I am commanded to do so.
I had a visit from quite a crowd of the sons of Belial today. They spewed their vomitous hatred and jealousy for my posts and condemned me repeatedly for standing for God. I am not surprised, nor is that the reason why this blog has only six months to go. What I do is basically none of the world’s business so you can take your nasty filth-ridden comments and false accusations somewhere else. You are not shaking your fist at me, but at God Almighty.
Too many people have too much time on their hands, and an idle person is the Devil’s best friend. It’s sad that many people today serve the Devil, whether they know it or not.
And no, I am NOT allowing comments here anymore.
This article on the jesus-is-savior.com website is so incredibly powerful that I had to share. I italicized and underlined everything that gave me a blessing. This is an interview taken from the lips of one of the most potent and prolific preachers that ever trod this old earth, Dr. Jack Hyles–
Brother David Stewart writes:
I have a wonderful book (no longer available) authored by Attorney David Gibbs Jr. from 1994, featuring brief interviews with Pastor Jack Hyles. The great book is titled, “Attorney David C. Gibbs, Jr. Interviews DR. JACK HYLES.”
“The height of your depths is the measure of your greatness, not the height of your highs.”
Attorney Gibbs: What do you do to keep a God-honoring balance in your emotional life? With all of the press of schedule and demands upon you, how do you stay emotionally stable?
Dr. Hyles: I say to my people often that it is not how high your heights are—it is how high your lows are. The height of your depths is the measure of your greatness, not the height of your highs. You grow by raising your depths. Whatever it is your personality or your attendance to church, whatever it is, your greatness is measured by the height of your lowest point.
The other morning I preached—and I have forgotten the text I used and sermon’s title—but I showed how a person grows. I got down on the bottom step and said, “You do not grow like that.”
I said, “That is the way that you grow.” I stepped up two steps and stepped back one. I stepped up three steps and stepped back two. I was preaching that if you are backslidden, then at least hang around where you are.
Here is the most wonderful thought. Peter denied the church, denied the faith, denied the Lord, cursed and swore, was warmed by the devil’s fire, slept when he should have been praying, followed afar off, denied the Lord, and took his clothes off and went fishing. Fifty days later he was preaching the great Pentecostal revival. It took Jacob twenty-five years to get back.
The sweet thing about it is that Peter hung around where he was. He went fishing, but he went fishing where he had walked on the water and where he had seen Jesus calm the storm. As he was fishing he could look up on the hills and see the same place where Jesus had fed the five thousand. He could look over here and see the Capernaum synagogue. Fifty days later he saw three thousand people saved because he hung around where he was. On the other hand, Jacob was twenty-five hundred miles away and it took him twenty-five years to get back.
In that sermon I said, “After pastoring this church for over thirty-four years, I know that all of us are going to backslide. That means you step back some.”
That is the nature of the growth of a Christian—up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down. After awhile your depths will be higher than they were a while ago. All of us are going to backslide. Some of us are going to get mad and leave the church and go to another one. Others get mad and drop out of church altogether. Some of us move somewhere else to make more money.
Some of us, however, backslide and stay in the pew and do not miss anything—we hang around. After a while these people are going to look and say, “My daughter was married right there.” “My father lay in a casket right there.” “I was saved right over there.” After a while, if you hang around where you had it, you will get it back.
The whole purpose of the message was that everybody backslides, because backsliding is a necessary ingredient to growth. It is like the leverage used in pulling a hammer back to hit a nail. If you have a car stuck in the mud, you pull it back and push it forward. Backsliding is necessary for growth. It is a part of spiritual growth if you hang around where you were.
Attorney Gibbs: That is good. We live with the perception that backsliding needs to be eliminated.
Dr. Hyles: Yes, but that is not true. Backsliding is a momentum gatherer. Nobody can keep breathing out. Nobody can keep going forward without times of backing up to get the leverage to grow.
Attorney Gibbs: To dress up, we quit calling backsliding, “backsliding.” We do not want to say that we are backsliding, so what we do say is that we are not as fervent as we once were.
Dr. Hyles: After a while everybody is backslidden. The secret to growing from your backslidden condition is to not stop anything that you have been doing. When you do not enjoy the Bible, read the Bible anyway. If I had lost my appetite, I would hang around the table where there was good food. Eventually, it may smell good to me.
Another thing about being backslidden—we make decisions when we are not qualified to make decisions. We backslide and then we make decisions that will affect our entire lives. Do no do that. When you are backslidden, hold it. Do not make any decisions at all. Just hang around.
In one of my books there is a chapter called “How High Are Your Valleys?” where I talk about this. Take the temperament. All of us are going to be out-of-sorts sometimes. The secret is not how sweet we can get, but how “un-sour” we can get. It is how much less sour we are when we are irritated the next time. (Lord this is good stuff!! AMEN!!)
You do not eliminate your negatives; you simply raise your valleys. You do not eliminate the depth of your valley, you simply raise the bottom of your valley. Your valley is just as deep when you are growing as it was when you were not growing, but the bottom of that deep valley is higher than the bottom of the deep valleys you once went through. If I am up here, my valley is just as high on the top as it was down here.
One reason that God allows it to be that way is so that we will realize our need of Him. We feel just as despondent in our valleys now as we did years ago, even though the bottom of our valley now is above what our peak used to be years ago. Everything is comparative. If you go to a mountain range, the big mountains do not look any bigger than the small mountains.
How high are your valleys? I try to raise the depths of my depression. I try to raise the depths of my discouragement. I do not try to eliminate discouragement. It will never be eliminated. (Amen to that!!)
On Sunday night I preached “Let No Man Take Thy Joy.” I said that joy is never associated with anything on earth. It is always associated with Heaven.
The Bible says to “rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20). It says to “rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven.” (Matthew 5:12).
I rejoice in the glory of the Lord. Joy is never associated with anything on the earth. Joy depends on you—happiness depends on someone else. God never commanded us to be happy; He commands us to be joyful.
I said to the people, “Leave each other alone. Do not try to remake your husband. Do not try to remake your wife. When you do that you are just trying to make yourself happy. That is selfishness. Leave her alone, work on yourself. Then you will have joy. When you work on someone else, then your happiness depends on them. You are trying to make yourself happy by depending on them.”
That is the wonderful thing about preaching. I said, “You cannot do a thing for me. You fellows, I want to improve you tonight, but I cannot improve you unless I improve me and you see me improve.”
The whole thing, as I see it in the Christian life, is based on this matter of not allowing yourself to get as low this time as you did last time. Do not fight depression; fight the depression that you had before. Do not fight the discouragement; fight the discouragement that was as deep as it was last time. You get discouraged because you cannot keep yourself from getting discouraged. You can take this matter of the heights of your valleys and apply it to any area of life. For me it is one of the great nerve centers.
Attorney Gibbs: I have never heard anybody say it that way.
