Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity in lieu of watered-down, entertainment oriented churchianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C. Ryle

7:18 PM - 5 Things You Should Know About How God Sees You

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I'm convinced most Christians don't have a very good understanding of how God sees us. I'm not surprised about this because it's really hard to for us to comprehend. God sees us so differently from the way we see ourselves and the way others see us, that there's really no comparison. It's like He and we are looking at two different people. And in a way that's true because we can only see ourselves from our past experience, but He has chosen to see us now as we will be in the future when we're with Him forever. So let's set aside how we see ourselves for a moment and take a look at five things the Bible says about how God sees us.

7:18 PM - Archaeological Discoveries Prove Old Testament To Be Accurate

Details
http://www.christiansinpakistan.com/critics-of-bible-silenced-once-again-archaeological-discoveries-prove-old-testament-to-be-accurate/


(And under reader comments was this spot on personal testimony.)

Until you experience a relationship with the Spirit of God you will never truly understand. I know God is real. I have experienced his power. I have seen a person I know demon posessed and levitate off the ground. She became as strong as 50 men and spoke in a different voice and I witnessed the power of God cast it out. I have seen my mother walk again after she had a completely fractured hip and the doctors told her she would never walk again and she said God I will not sue the people who hit me if you let me walk again and within a month she was walking on her own with no pain. Confounded the doctors. I have seen miracle after miracle. Not no staged fake stuff. I have seen prophecy unfold day by day.

If you want to say some stuff in the Bible could be changed is one thing but to say God is not real is to deprive yourself from the greatest experience life has to offer. Many of the accounts of the Bible historians have proven. The funny thing about science is that it does prove the existence of God and how he aligned the stars perfectly and setup the atmosphere the way he did. No random explosion made it happen. Everything was created in its place.

Every time mankind tries to play God they mess everything up and create diseases and plagues. People who don't want to believe in God its because they don't want to be held accountable for their way of life.

6:00 PM - The #1 Reason for the Push for Mandatory Vaccination

Not only is there profit up front but for the life of the recipients as vaccine induced chronic diseases keep them going back to the medical industry.

--------------------

Profit over Safety – Centers for Disease Control Names 271 New Vaccinations

Although the CDC has listed a total of 271 vaccinations currently under development, in reality, this number could be even higher.

In a recent article published by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., titled Children at Risk – Vaccines, Government & Big Pharma's Dirty Money, he highlighted the fact that every vaccine introduced to the vaccine schedule guarantees its manufacturer millions of customers, increasing vaccine revenue by billions of dollars. However, it appears that a minimum of 56 doses of 14 vaccinations before the age of eighteen is not quite lucrative enough for the pharmaceutical industry, as according to Mr. Kennedy's research, the CDC has 271 new vaccinations under development in the hopes that vaccine revenues will reach a staggering $100 billion by 2025.

Kennedy called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) "a cesspool of corruption, mismanagement and dysfunction," making it crystal clear to readers that financial gain fueled their decision making.

7:14 PM - Quote for Today

"If Jesus is not the real center of your life – I mean that everything you do and think, revolves around Him, then heaven really has nothing to offer you. Heaven is not about streets, mansions and crowns. It is about simply being in the presence of Jesus for ever and ever. If you find that idea scary, I am concerned that you will be disappointed with heaven. Actually, you won't even see heaven because heaven is only for those who love Him with all their hearts and whose lives revolve totally around Him."

7:05 PM - King James Only Controversy

Personally speaking, to me the KJV/modern translations debate is a diversionary, divisive, time wasting tactic of Satan. With the exception of a very few truly perverted "translations." For those with confusion and doubt this long article is one of the best I have come across on the subject. And it shows when and by who this nonsense started. What gets me is the hatred displayed by some KJV only people, much the same as the hatred of some against the pre-trib rapture. Such an unchristian character shows Satan is there behind the scenes.

-----------------------------------------

If the translation was inspired, there would be a single “perfect” version. Yet what is called the King James translation covers at least 11 versions and editions (1611, 1613, 1629, 1638, 1644, 1664, 1701, 1744, 1762, 1769, 1850). In 1611 alone, there were already two different editions – the so-called “he” and “she” versions!

In addition there are thousands of differences between the various editions. One author found as many as 24,000 differences between them. Some point to the 1611 (original) translation as the one. Even those who make this claim do not use the 1611 version but a highly redacted version.

After 1611, the KJV was revised many times and also many errors crept in as a result of careless copying. Major revisions began in 1760 resulting in the 1769 version which forms the base of most modern printings. It must be noted that the 1760 revision made more than 24,000 changes to the 1611 version. The copy many read today is very different to the 1611 version.

To the Reader

If you are convinced that the King James Version (KJV) is the only legitimate English Bible and that all other translations are false then please don’t waste your time reading this article because nothing anyone can say will convince you of the truth.

If however, you are genuinely interested in knowing the truth about the King James Only controversy, I pray that this paper will help you to better understand the issues.

8:42 AM - US Navy Charging Officer for Self Defense in Chattanooga Shooting

America is under God's judgement right now and one of those judgements is a spirit of insanity against those that hate the truth.

-------------------------------

What's happening to this heroic Navy officer from the Chattanooga shooting will make your blood BOIL

As reported ten days ago by Western Journalism, "A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn., even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.

Ladies and gents, resulting from the text message I received yesterday, I can confirm that the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for illegally discharging a firearm on federal property.

8:41 AM - North Carolina Attempting to Criminalize Good Health

The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition (NCBDN) has launched an all-out assault against free speech with its antithetically named "Modernize Dietetics/Nutrition Practice Act," or House Bill 796, which would make it a crime to share health advice or food strategies with non-family members who are suffering from health conditions.

The bill, which has already passed its first reading in the North Carolina State Senate, would prohibit unlicensed individuals from offering "medical nutrition therapy," which the proposed legislation defines as the "provision of nutrition care services for the purpose of managing or treating a medical condition."

8:40 AM - Islamville, SC

There are about two dozen Islamic jihadist training camps around America. Imagine what the FBI would do if constitutional non-violent militia people were training for defense. The difference is that the government is using gullible Muslims to advance their NWO whereas real Americans stand in their way.

9:58 PM - Is Hillsong the Church from Hell?

In local church apostasy news a small country Methodist church near me that was founded in 1849 has just gone modern with the entire new staff appearing no older than 40. They claim to still hold a traditional service at 11AM but a rock band service earlier. In an attempt to lure people they sent out a mass mailing advertising eats, games, and other entertainment. For whatever reason the old church was only attracting less than 20 people on Sunday's. Another one bites the dust.

--------------------------------

Hillsong NYC Church Has An 'Engaged' Openly Homosexual Couple Leading The Choir

Hillsong Church in New York City attracts over 7,000 energized worshippers every week. It's pastor, Carl Lentz, has a half-shaved head, ripped jeans, is covered with tattoos and draws a celebrity audience of people like Justin Beiber and NBA star Kevin Durant. When it comes to the topic of same-sex marriage, however, their official position is shrouded in half-answers and obfuscation. But one thing is quite clear: they allow an openly and unrepentantly gay couple to lead their choir.

7:02 PM - Longing for Home

You may have seen this before: it’s called Safely Home and was painted by Ron Dicianni. The Christian man looks utterly relieved, he is leaning into Jesus, his clothes are dirty and torn, we don’t know what he endured, but we know it wasn’t easy. Jesus’ face is full of emotion as he holds the man close to his heart, showing he knows what this believer went through but is proud he made it safely home.

The details in this painting are what make it even more powerful. The man is holding onto a crown in his hand that has replaced handcuffs, now lying next to him. In the background is an Angel patiently waiting, holding a white robe which is reserved for those martyred for their faith in Christ. (Revelation 6:11, 7:13-14) A crown of thorns is etched into the red carpet, a reminder that we aren’t the first to have suffered.

excerpted from
http://www.persecutionblog.com/2013/12/looking-up.html

SafelyHome

I am home in heaven, dear ones;
Oh so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder how I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh, but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And he came himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remains,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

10:38 PM - Our Eternal Home

I've had such a busy week indoors and out trying to get necessities done. The weather has gotten so dry here that garden stuff has to be watered every other day or so. Thankfully it doesn't take long but it's nothing like God's watering. Last week's blessed 1.2" rain is long gone. It was the first good rain in a long time. Is weather normal anywhere anymore? I heard a man from geoengineeringwatch.org being interviewed last night and he believes all of our weather is manipulated now. He did not paint a pleasant picture of the future as the government continues making things worse with chemtrailing.

As things get worse we need to be more focused on eternity. All this stuff is so temporary and eternity is so long. And with that in mind the message I listened to tonight was very good even though it sounded a little dated.

Missionary Robert Shelton has been BBN's Conference Pulpit speaker all this week and every message has been good. I don't know why his subject matter isn't listed but tonight he spoke on our eternal home - heaven. The current link for that message is here.
http://bbnradio.org.edgesuite.net/BBNOnDemand/htmfiles/english/E4CP.htm

ROBERT SHELTON graduated from Bob Jones University and served as a missionary with his wife for many years in the Far East. Since 1974, Dr. Shelton has been in a full-time ministry of evangelism and Bible conferences, traveling throughout the country and in many distant lands.

10:11 PM - Quote for Today

"The life of self-centeredness and self-satisfaction lived by most of todays Christians is so all-pervading that it effectively seals them off from any understanding at all of spiritual life; and when such people do undertake spiritual life, it is only as another form of self-satisfaction. This can be seen quite clearly in the totally false religious ideal both of the charismatic movement and the various forms of Christian meditation: all of them promise (and give very quickly) an experience of contentment and peace. But this is not the Christian ideal at all, which, if anything, may be summed up as a fierce battle and struggle...Now one cannot be a half-hearted Christian, but only entirely or not at all."

10:09 PM - Satan in Our Midst

Did "Tea Party darling" Paul Vallely help facilitate Military Satanism? Was he truthful to his Tea Party and Women Defending America followers about his relationship with key Satanic leader, Michael Aquino?

by Constance Cumbey

Perhaps reading this, the first of 4 articles planned for the next 4 weeks on this sobering subject, it might be helpful to review the principles of Hegelian Dialectics – controlling both sides to direct all to the desired planned destination. Reading the Bible would help even more. I particularly recommend the passages about deception that could, if possible, "deceive even the Elect." For those of you who believe you are "Elect" and therefore immune, I suggest you are perhaps now the most vulnerable. One of my all time favorite writers Fr. Seraphim Rose )1934-1982) before his death in his sobering book ORTHODOXY AND THE RELIGION OF THE FUTURE made this picturesque observation:

"Satan, it would seem, is now entering naked into human history."

Given the not so hidden links between American military leadership and one of the country's most significant Satanic leaders, obviously Satan has clearly entered very much naked into our human history, yes right here in the USA. Most have failed to see it, even though there have been abundant warnings, some albeit from rightfully questionable sources, but generating enough smoke to tell us we should be cognizant of lurking fire.

The first part of this four part planned series will give you warning about a figure presently revered in Tea Party, Constitutionalist and Patriot circles. He is General Paul A. Vallely. In 1980 in his role as a military person in charge of "PsyOp" and military intelligence circles, he commissioned self-confessed Satanist. Lt. Colonel Michael Aquino to co-author a study with him. Both were inspired by another military New Ager, General John Alexander who wrote his enthusiastic 1980 paper, Beam Me Up Spock. This proposed using New Age tactics and practices as a cost effective method in the United States Army. All this took place before there was any suspicion that a backlash might develop to the New Age Movement. I personally did not discover the existence of the New Age Movement until 1981 and my book on the subject that also included some
military developments was released in mid 1983.

6:18 PM - Discerning Women Leaving Churches

Nine Reasons Discerning Women Are Leaving Your Church

Earlier this week, Thom Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay, pubished a blog article entitled "Six Reasons Why Women May Be Leaving Your Church."  Although I am not particularly a fan of Dr. Rainer (due to his allowing heretical materials to be sold at LifeWay), I thought this article was a good one, and I agreed with several of the issues he raised, especially, that these issues need to be addressed by church leadership.

As a ministry wife and someone in the field of women's ministry myself, I, too, have noticed women leaving the church. Not just women in general, but a certain subset of church-attending ladies: discerning women. While Scripture is pretty clear that we can expect women (and men) who are false converts to eventually fall away from the gathering of believers, why are godly, genuinely regenerated women who love Christ, His word, and His church, leaving their local churches?

6:16 PM - God is NOT Finished With Israel!

Is God Finished With Israel?
by Alf Cengia

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to get me more fired up than those who apply the word "escapism" to pretribulationism, it is those who deny national Israel has a future in God's plan in the face of all the biblical evidence for it.

I've come to suspect that much of the opposition against dispensationalism, premillennialism and even pretribulationism stems from how some people view Israel. Those who hold to Replacement Theology (or supersessionism) often remark that we show "too much interest" in Israel and prophecy. They say we do so at the detriment of the gospel.

We who look at the prophetic texts and take them at a face-value understanding are passionate about Israel because we are passionate about God. And God is passionate about Israel. It isn't about idolizing secular Israel as some detractors sometimes like to imply. It is about recognizing God's faithful promise to one day redeem a recalcitrant nation when it repents (Hos 5:15; Matt 23:39) - just as He did for us.

This is the reassurance of the gospel. That Israel is promised restoration after it repents is comforting because that same God will keep His promises to us. If God can change His mind about Israel then what can we have hope in?

5:49 PM - 10 Million Kenyan Cristians Tell Obama To Shove His Sodomy Agenda

What a stark contrast to American "Christians."

--------------------------------

When Obama lectured Kenya comparing gays to the mistreatment of African Americans, Africa responded with a scathing letter written by 700 Kenyan evangelical pastors on behalf of their 10 million Christian followers. In it, Africa told Obama to take his 'disgusting agenda', his 'equating racism with rejection of homosexuality', and told him to shove it. The message from Africans to this African American Obama, was "hit the road Jack" while adding "don't you come back no more".

"We do not want him to come and talk on homosexuality in Kenya or push us to accepting that which is against our faith and culture," the letter read.

Specifically, the letter asked that Obama leave "the gay talk" in America and focus his discussions in Kenya on "development," "cooperation" and "the long-time relationship Kenya has had with America."

"But about our beliefs and culture — keep off!" the letter added.

5:46 PM - Public Schools Leading Children to Satan

Public schools are designed for social engineering and brainwashing, not education of the mind to lead a productive useful life. That's why today's high school graduates are generally so ignorant and far behind that of other developed nations.

The New Age, Occultism, and Our Children in Public Schools

“Softening Up” For Occult Revival—Hermetic Magic & Hegel’s Dialectic Process

Why would our country, so richly blessed by God, embrace the occult? What caused this drastic change in values? How could it have happened so seemingly fast?!

Actually, the entire Western world had already been “softened up” by the 1960s when the rising rebellion against God erupted into public view. The century-old pursuit of social solidarity based on Georg Hegel’s occult philosophy and consensus process had been an effective tool for change.

Hegel’s 19th century pattern for “group thinking” denied God’s absolute truths and trained people to adapt to “continual change” and group consensus. By the year 2000, it had been embraced by schools, corporations, community organizations, mainline churches, and political structures throughout America. Through the global media, people around the world have caught Hegel’s vision of spiritual synthesis—an enticing blend of spiritual illusions and practices that appeal to our capricious human nature.
