It’s that party season again – all in the name of the “holiday spirit”

12038219_879364085434292_778244714482667891_nLast week in Oakland California, a fire erupted inside a warehouse, killing at least 33 partygoers, and the death toll may continue to rise.

Back in June of 2016 in Orlando Florida, an armed Muslim homosexual entered a gay Nightclub ‘Pulse,’ as he opened fire, wounding over 100 partygoers, killing 49 of them.

Back in 2003 in West Warwick Rhode Island, 100 partygoers perished in an inferno inside the ‘Station nightclub.’

Every 24-hours approximately 160,000 people die in this world (excluding suicide and abortion).

Why do I preface this post with the aforementioned? Because this is the time of the year whereas many ‘professing’ Christians will be partying directly alongside the unsaved world.

Whether you die like the above, or if you die today, or when you die in the near future, judgement day is coming.

“And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him” (Hebrews 9:27-29).

To my Christian contacts:

We are not to enjoy the things of this world i.e. immorality, sinful parties, revelries, etc. (1 Pet 4:3). We are not to partake in worldly sinful pleasures, but rather we’re to expose them (Eph 5:11). We are not to have fellowship with the world, nor to be unequally yoked with the unsaved worldlings (2 Cor 6:14-16). We are not to love the things of this world, and if we do, we are at enmity with God (James 4:4-5, 1 John 2:15-17). We are not to be conformed to this world (Rom 12:2,) instead we are to be sanctified and Holy, because God is Holy (1 Peter 1:13-16). We are to be clothed in His righteousness (Rev 3:4, Job 29:14, Zech 3:1-5). We are to be imitators of God (Eph 5:1). We are to walk circumspectly, to be wise, and to not get drunk (or methusko), but to be filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:15-18, 1 Cor 6:9-10).

The following is in the context of walking in Christian Love.

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3 But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4 Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. 5 For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them; 8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, 14 for anything that becomes visible is light.

Therefore it says,

“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ” (Ephesians 5:1-21).

The Apostle Paul gave the following warning to those that profess to be Christian. This is not an exhaustive list of all hell-bound sins, but this short-list sure looks like so many churchgoers today.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

As always – Ye must be born again. Christians love ‘biblically’ – repent – be salt and light – be holy – be sanctified – fear God – pray without ceasing – keep His commandments – walk circumspectly – believe in and trust Jesus – obey the Gospel – share the Gospel – preach the Gospel – contend for the faith, – hate the things that God hates, and love the things that God loves – keep the faith, work-out your salvation, and endure to the end!

Short video on ‘Praying imprecatory prayers on particular enemies of the Lord,’ by Charles Leiter

Share Button

the-wrath-of-god

Though we must love and forgive our enemies, there might also be a time for this type of prayer.

Over the decades I have engaged in a handful of imprecatory prayers. These prayers should only be administered with the right intent and right motive. That rather than the sinner receive judgement, that Lord-willing the person would repent and be reconciled to God, or as further explained by Charles Leiter ~

“The sentiment in the imprecatory Psalms is not that of an evil personal grudge, but rather of someone desiring judgment out of concern for the glory of God.”

I can remember specifically three men (and their full names) during three different incidences, where I prayed imprecatory prayers over them. Without exaggeration, the Lord miraculously intervened on all three, and He did so within six months of each incident. For the fear of God, and the glory of God.

Though we currently live in the dispensation of grace, the God on the right side of the Bible, is the same God as the God on the left side of the Bible.

Read imprecatory Psalms chapters 5, 10, 17, 35, 58, 59, 69, 70, 79, 83, 109, 129, 137, and 140.

Listen to the voice of the martyrs. “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” (Revelation 6:10).

Albeit the Lord does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23), and it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31). Nonetheless Christians ought to be very hesitant to participate in these prayers. ~ Chaplain Bill

Video on ‘A Defense of Field Preaching (aka open-air or street preaching),’ by Daniel Courney

Share Button

A vast majority of pastors across America are opponents to Biblical open-air preaching (a Biblical calling). Hypocritically they are the ones that need to defend their westernized churchianity, but they can’t, because they have no defense.

“No sort of defense is needed for preaching out of doors; but it would need very potent arguments to prove that a man had done his duty who has never preached beyond the walls of his meeting house. A defense is required rather for services within buildings than for worship outside of them. Apologies are certainly wanted for architects who pile up brick and stone into the skies when there is so much need for preaching rooms among poor sinners down below.” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon

Video on ‘The Dangers of Neglecting Evangelism,’ by Danny Hernandez

Share Button

My additional observation: What I’ve learned through the years, is the word ‘excuse’ is oftentimes synonymous with either of the words ‘denial,’ ‘ignorance’ of the Scriptures, or worse – to ‘lie.’ Every Christian is commanded to engage in ‘Biblical’ evangelism, it is not a “gift” as some postulate.

But instead through ‘friendship evangelism,’ many professing Christians are making friends with the world, and are becoming worldly in their efforts. And worse, they’re even accepting, congratulating, celebrating with, and/or acquiescing to the sins of the unsaved. They then egregiously and unbiblically call that “evangelism.” – Chaplain Bill 🙂

Short video on ‘There’s no such thing as a “Gay Christian,” by Jeff Peterson

Share Button

Sadly today many ‘professing’ Christians are believing or teaching otherwise. As the Scripture warns, that God will send some a strong delusion, so that they may believe the lie (2 Thess 2:11).

And were are seeing more of the deluded, more now than ever before.

If a sinner becomes born-again, their ‘lifestyle’ or ‘way of life’ will be changed. Henceforth as the preacher says, their formal lifestyle will be that they “were” (past tense) a thief, or a drunkard, or a homosexual, or a fornicator etcetera.

That is not politically correct to say, but it is Biblically correct.

When people are truly born-again of Christ’s Incorruptible Seed, they will no longer be just like the world, they will be very different. And because their ‘life style,’ or ‘way of life’ will be Holy (because He is Holy), they will be enabled to judge Biblically.

Video conquering Heartbreak Ridge off-road trail – 2N61Y

Share Button

heartbreak ridge off roadToday my wife and I spent a long day off-roading. Our favorite trail was the infamous ‘Heartbreak Ridge.’ However our hearts were not broken. Frankly our lunch spot in the dirt was more ‘bonding’ than a fancy dinner.

Considering I had no spotter, my Jeep did very well crawling over many rocks (though I’m not a rock crawler), and a few technical obstacles. To my surprise not even one hard bump or grind.

So that both of us could enjoy the thrill from the ‘inside’ of the Jeep, we only videotaped some of the obstacles.

Note: The correct trailhead GPS coordinate is 34.13.526 / 116.40.850 (from the bottom going up).

Thin blue line flag on Jeep

Flying the Thin Blue Line 3’x5′ flag

Our adventure consisted of 8 Jeeps, and 11 persons. We most certainly all had a great time. The weather was beautiful, and the dust was minimal, the scenery was awesome. We were off the road at 0930, and back on the asphalt at 1330. This gave us with 4 hours of pleasurable scenery, v-notches, steep inclines, and declines. These trails also provided us with some enjoyable obstacles, and a most technical gateway. I did get some videotape of some of the obstacles, but not all of them. Being a lead and alone in my Jeep, it was not always easy to accomplish this. As often, the video I have provided is deceiving, and the team will agree that the terrain was more critical than depicted in the video.

The ‘increasing trend’ of professing Christians acquiescing to the entitlement culture

Share Button

crybaby cry babyAdmittedly years ago I needed to repent from my patriotic view of the Scriptures, and so I say this with love and concern.

Sadly within America I am seeing an ‘increasing trend’ of professing Christians acquiescing to the entitlement culture.

More specifically they think they’re entitled to “Christian liberties,” or “religious freedoms,” or “Christian rights.”

Though these ‘secular rights’ are wonderful, and I am thankful for them. But they are not ‘Biblical rights,’ they are extra-Biblical Americanized luxuries.

Fact is, I do not deserve the oxygen that I breathe, but by the grace of God He’s allowing me to breathe some.

We need to quit thinking like snotty nosed American brats, and emulate Christ, and ruminate on other Christians in other parts of the world. We need to have a lower view of ourselves, and a higher view of thee Almighty God and His Scriptures. And when America does lose these luxuries, yes the Lords church (Christ’s bride) will still prevail. When Christianity does become illegal in America, praise the Lord. His remnant will continue being faithful to His Word.

“And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16:18).

Let us put things into a Biblical perspective, let us keep it real, and let us be as Biblical as we can. – Chaplain Bill 🙂

As always – Ye must be born again. Christians love ‘biblically’ – repent – be salt and light – be holy – be sanctified – fear God – pray without ceasing – keep His commandments – walk circumspectly – believe in and trust Jesus – obey the Gospel – share the Gospel – preach the Gospel – contend for the faith, – hate the things that God hates, and love the things that God loves – keep the faith, work-out your salvation, and endure to the end!
