What Is Salvation?

Inspirational Christian Blogs

First, let me tell you what salvation is not. It is not a creed, a code, a cause, or a church.

Salvation is not a creed. I hear people say, “Well, I believe the plan of salvation.” And my response? You can believe the plan of salvation and go straight to hell, because we’re not saved by the plan of salvation, we’re saved by the Man of salvation—Jesus Christ.

Second, salvation is not a code. Some say, “Well, I believe that if you just live right you’ll go to heaven.” Friend, let me tell you that if any of us could be saved by living right, then Calvary was a blunder!

Thirdly, salvation is not earned by adhering to a cause. People say, “Well, I believe in loving people. I believe that if I love everybody, God will say, ‘Come on into heaven.’ ” Loving people is nice and it’s…

X-Rated Article: Trans-America’s XX-XY & Title IX Crisis

REV. AUSTIN MILES MARCH 7, 2017 FEATURED ARTICLES, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 COMMENTS

by Rev. Austin Miles

BOISE 3/6/17–One cannot escape the transgender irruption spewing its lava everywhere even in the Hinder-lands, if Idaho can be considered such. It IS a conservative and family oriented state.

The March 3rd issue of the Meridian Press, an area weekly, had a feature headlined: Support Gender Inclusive Facilities at Schools. That piece (command?) was written by Jennifer Gess, Ph.D, a professor for Walden University and has a private counseling practice in Boise. She consoles-makes feel better–transgender children, youth and families to let them know they are as normal as anybody else.  How’s that again?

She praises Obama for using Executive Orders to push Title IX, meaning that XX (females) and XY (males) can pee and shower with any X combination they wish. Babbling on, she scribbles that this order protected transgender students from bullying, discrimination and harassment in the bath rooms and locker rooms.  Well duh! They would have brought that upon themselves by entering an intimate facility where they do not belong.

Ms. Gess then proclaimed after the Title IX (bathroom) Bill passed; “The transgender students I work with, immediately felt acknowledged, validated and normalized knowing the Obama Administration supported their existence.” Yep, that’ll do it every time.

She also pounded her keyboard to push front and center that there were those who objected to this “right” to pee wherever they want with whomever they choose. One of those she blasted is President Donald Trump who reversed that order, bringing common sense into this issue which was in short supply during the last administration.

Professor Gess lectures schools in her state regarding the necessity of allowing any sex to pee with any sex. This, do doubt, gives a sense of togetherness. OK Fellas, pull up your skirts and aim carefully.

She scolded the schools in her state that do not want this guidance from her and criticized them for basing their prejudice on ‘pathologizing” (interesting new word) views of transgender individuals, meaning that built-in sex organs is of no significance to their identities. We suppose that knocks out Genesis once and for all.

This is why she spends so much time lecturing on bathroom inclusivity (another Gess word) to combat resistance to this pee-where-you-will-with whomever you will– whenever you will.  Before entering a bath room, straights must now ponder this specific situation; ‘To pee or not to pee. That is the question.’ 

That mean ole President Donald Trump had the insensitivity to reverse that Obama toilet bill. SHAME on him! “Don’t you know”, the professor bellows on, “that resistance to this social reconstruction of life affects the transgenders so much that additionally, many clients I work with experience urinary tract infections due to their fear of being harassed in the bathroom?”  Wow! We just learned something.

Dr, Gess said that parents must be educated on this issue. Well, she certainly educated this writer with that statement. We never had any idea that not accepting men and boys in dresses entering girl’s bathrooms and showers, causes urinary tract infections. We learn something new every day.

The whole point of this professor and counselor is summed up by her suggesting “that schools put transgender advocates on a school panel to share their stories and normalize the experience of transgender individuals.”  By this standard, it appears that the rest of us are abnormal.

Sometime ago, inmates escaped from the Insane Asylum. They were all rounded up and stood in line at the front of a desk. “What is your name?” the guard demanded of the first in line. “Napoleon” said the inmate. “And WHO gave you that name?” the irritated guard demanded.  “God did,” he answered defiantly. A voice boomed out from the middle of the line: “I DID NOT!”

It is a mental problem to think that you are someone other than who you are. There are those with delusional grandeur, believing that they are a rich and famous when they are anything but. For a parent to encourage their child in transgenderism is a form of child abuse, according to a long list of distinguished hospitals, doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists. To do so is to mentally impair them for life.

Transgender identity is listed in the  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as “Gender Dysphoria.” That means a mental health problem that should be treated. It is time to treat mental illness, not celebrate it. We must stop encouraging young people from taking on this false identity which many time is merely to bring attention to themselves.

Kids will do wild things to feel they have gained some significance. The Communist Fake News papers encourage all things LGBTQ and even top level magazines such as National Geographic have added to this confusion by doing an entire front cover story celebrating a transgender little boy (for being ‘an individual’) which will encourage other kids to take that route since the attention gained is so great.  This IS child abuse.

Parents cannot and must not pamper their children in all of their ideas and conduct. If so you are shirking your duty as a parent. You are to GUIDE your children correctly until they are grown. If done properly and you do it responsibly, they will continue to come to you for advice as they grow older. Right now, parents, you are failing! Correction. You HAVE failed.

There is a crowd mentality which in itself gives strength to the feeble minded. And look at the support for obscene language and behavior that has swept up a multitude of people including pastors who have been drawn in to support these causes that are so destructive.

Meanwhile, these “transgender” kids see movie stars pretending to be someone else, even royalty, and becoming wealthy doing so. The lives of these celebrities are all self centered. Their pursuits of insatiable pleasure and immorality combined with their drinking and drugs in excess makes them mental wrecks.

They go on TV programs to discuss their sexual fetishes and use the “F” word constantly. The stars of today are not groomed, have no class, dress like bums with unwashed hair and don’t care how they look. And impressionable young people are watching them and, learning from them. Great examples for our young people.

Watching these ‘celebrities’  with envy are...the preachers who have compromised The Bible, preach sermons that merely tickle ears with pleasant messages about heaven automatically awaiting us…as long as we only believe with no other responsibilities to Jesus. And these same pastors, wanting to get into that limelight, write glowing reviews for films such as, Moonlight, a story about homosexuality.

One pastor writing for a Christian (?) magazine says this is a good film that allows us to walk in the shoes of another life so we can better understand what makes a person tick. He recommends that we all see the flick which displays passionate kisses between men prominent on the big screen. Yuk!

Next a Christian news service published a glowing review of the film abomination, The Shack which is blasphemous, brimming with New Age Religion elements where everybody goes to heaven. In this spin the film has a black woman as God. Swell. The church itself is to blame for the confusion and unrest in this world. They have turned their back on church teachings and have totally compromised the Bible. Meanwhile, the people, without real Christian leadership, have crashed and burned.

I remember years ago asking one young man if he planned to be a pastor. “Yea,” he answered, “that sounds like it would be a lot of fun.”  And that is the collection we have behind the pulpits today.

God has given specific rules to deal with your families.  Confusion rises when God’s Word is dumped to comply with worldly standards. Do not abdicate the sacred responsibility God has assigned to you. Do not agree with destructive ideas to gain ‘acceptance,’ or even love. If so that will all be short lived.

Parents and Pastors: stand firm with the duty God has entrusted you with. You are not to agree to destructive conduct period. To do so makes you a contributor to somebody’s ruin. Tell the confused what GOD says in His Word about any situation they find themselves in. The answer to everything is right there, and it is the preacher’s job to proclaim that.

And by the way, sin weakens any and all who indulge in it. This is why the Communists are pushing for a blur of identity–erasing the lines between male and female. To fall for any of this, anything away from God, makes you vulnerable to being taken over by tyrants. Then it will be too late to say, “I wish I hadn’t done that.

Final Note to Readers. The reference to transgenders above does NOT include those unfortunately born as hermaphrodites, having both male and female sex organs. That is a very painful issue to deal with and as a chaplain have personally witnessed that pain. See my story: Heart to Heart Talk with a Transgender.

YAY!! Jesus has won!

As the author has said, we are definitely in a battle.

Inspirational Christian Blogs

Because of Jesus sacrifice where He actually killed off sin and death, anyone who aligns with Him can genuinely claim Christ as his/her personal Saviour.

Obviously sin and evil still exist in the world! Otherwise extreme evil like ISIS and terrorism wouldn’t be here and we would all be living an idyllic lifestyle.

Evil does exist and will continue to exist until Jesus comes again. This unfortunately means we still have battles to fight.knight-1421358_960_720

This us what Spiritual warfare means ~ there are Christians and those who purposely pursue and persecute Christians ~Satan is alive and well and loves to “put the boot in” where he can ~ even though Jesus has already won the Battle for us when he died for us on Calvary all those years ago.

On saying that, does that mean we have no further battles to face? Of course not ~we have to pick up our swords, put…

Your Joy Shall be Complete

images“Come to Me all My children for your joy shall be complete. My arms are open to all but there are those who desire to refute Me, willing to do harm against those who believe.

Nations of evil shall be destroyed and live no more. Those who support anarchy and violence shall disappear never to be seen again. Desert rats shall play tag upon their bones for all who do not kneel in confession and repentance shall serve the one who has led them to their doom.

Nations are at risk in these latter days. My appearance shall bring them low to the ground as a serpent in the desert dunes. The time has come when My people must stand up or all they believe shall fall.

Countries are turning to unwise notions that they are superior to others. Look about you and see death across the land. Millions are being killed through hatred and disillusionment.

Suicides are being done in the name of My Father. STOP! For eternity is long, is endless  and you shall not see the glory of the Lord but will dwell in a place of horror and misery that cannot touch the imagination of man. Torches are lit, curse words screamed, hatred, and violence prevail.

The storm of the Lord shall sweep across the land and all who are in its path shall be blown to the ends of the earth. Wells will dry, buildings lay in rotted piles where only the bugs shall enter. Take heed you heathens of Satan’s kingdom your end of violence is near.

Lift your prayers My children for all who are in the path of this violence. Their hatred spreads like wildfire and many shall be entranced and step into the flames.

Pray for those who teeter on the fence of heaven or hell. Help them to step across the line of life or death  for their decision shall last for all time. Reach out in love, draw them by My light as bugs are drawn to the nights light.

Reach out to those who are in pain. Emotional, spiritual, and in their bodies. You have My authority and miracles are still alive. Believe My children for My power shall flow through you. Obey My callings, My directions. Bring healing to hearts and souls.

Stand tall in adversity that now cries loud and clear. Many are fooled by the sly words of those who believe in self. Self is as foolish as jumping off a cliff with no net to catch you below. Only rocks will meet you as you descend into the never-ending space of all time.

Forget not the words I speak for My wrath shall be poured out opening your eyes as a sudden horrible dream will raise you up out of bed.

Listen not and you shall see those things you only imagined on a screen filled with screams. Horrors are ahead for all who turn away, grab them children in your arms of love. They shall not listen but don’t give up all hope is in Me.

Lift your heads, your hearts, your hands and praise the King. As a blink of an eye you shall bow before the King, your crown laying at His feet. Your faces aglow with His glory for you are a daughter, a son of the King.

A religion of fear, hatred, and violence shall be stopped in its tracks. For those who come against My people shall die in their ignorance with no one to grieve their passing. Hell awaits them with open arms and My tears shall flow for their demise should not have been. Their eyes are blinded by those who allowed evil to enter their souls.

Cry out My children, let those in power know your prayers. Pray your ears, and theirs, shall open to My words of warning for I have spoken and it shall come to pass. Love them, hate their sins, and be alert to their deceptive ways.

Let not your leaders turn your heads for the wars across the land shall bring pain but the victory is yours.”

Bring Forth the Truth of His Word

“Go out unto the nations. Bring forth the truth of the Most Holy One. Jackals are at the gates hungry for unsuspecting prey. Let not the choices of the world hinder what He who is Mighty has deemed.

Prophecy has been spoken by those who God anointed, those who have spread the gospel of truth throughout the land. Bring forth the truth of His Word for time is of the essence.

Give His words to the lowly for their only hope is in Him. Can you not see the sky, the moon that hovers in the night? Darkness fills the hearts of many hindering the Light from entering. Let His Light shine through you My precious ones. Drill a hole of truth through the armor encasing others. Let not false armor so many wear discourage you in giving the truth of His Word.

You are precious in My sight. My…

A Really Sick Mind – Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg

Ginsburg Roe v Wade

Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg Favors Decriminalizing Pedophilia and Child Sex Trafficking

DR. EOWYN FEBRUARY 9, 2017 FEATURED ARTICLES, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 COMMENTS

The legal definition of “age of consent” is:

Age of consent refers to the legally defined age at which a person is no longer required to obtain parental consent to get married. It also refers to the age at which a person is held to have the capacity to voluntarily agree to sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse with a person under the age of consent may lead to criminal charges of statutory rape or sexual assault . . . .

Statutory rape is sex between an adult and a minor below the age of consent. Every state has a statutory rape law in some form. The age of consent varies from state to state, but is generally from 16 – 18 years of age. . . . Consent of the victim and belief that the victim is of the age of consent are usually considered immaterial.

A pedophile is an adult with “sexual fondness for and activity” with children, i.e., minors below the age of consent. Pedophilia islegally defined as sexual child abuse, i.e., any sexual activity with a minor below the age of consent, which includes fondling a child’s genitals, intercourse, incest, rape, sodomy, exhibitionism, and commercial exploitation of children through prostitution or the production of pornographic materials.

Since the age of consent in the United States which varies from state to state is  from 16 to 18, lowering the age of consent to 12 would legalize pedophilia of children age 12 and above.

That is exactly what Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee and daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, recommends in a co-authored book that led to sweeping changes made by the federal government in the name of sex equality.

ruth-bader-ginsburg

In 1977 when Ginsburg was General Counsel of the ACLU, sheco-authored(with Brenda Feigen-Fasteau) Sex Bias in the U.S. Code: A Report of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which was published by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in April 1977, for which Ginsburg and Feigen-Fasteau were paid with federal funds under Contract No. CR3AK010.

The source of the information and quotes from Sex Bias in the U.S. Code you’ll read below is Executive Director of Eagle Forum Susan Hirschmann’s Testimony Re. Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Senate Judiciary Committee, July 23, 1993.

The 230-page Sex Bias in the U.S. Code identifies hundreds of federal laws alleged to discriminate against women and recommends an avalanche of government and social changes, including:

  • Military draft and combat duty for women.
  • Legalization of prostitution.
  • Sex integration of prisons, reformatories, schools and colleges and their activities (including sports), all-girls and all-boys organizations, and fraternities and sororities.
  • Changing the names of the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts and Big Brothers of America to reflect sex integration.
  • Elimination of the traditional family concept of husband as breadwinner and wife as homemaker.
  • Comprehensive government child-care.
  • Adoption of sex-neutral language, e.g., “artificial” instead of “manmade”; “person, human” instead of “man, woman”; and plural nouns “they” and “them” instead of “singular third person pronouns”. At the same time, however, Ginsburg and Feigen-Fasteau hypocritically insist that the U.S. Department of Labor retains its “Women’s Bureau”.

Ginsburg wrote on p. 102 of Sex Bias in the U.S. Code:

Eliminate the phrase ‘carnal knowledge of any female, not his wife, who has not attained the age of 16 years’ and substitute a federal, sex-neutral definition of the offense . . . . A person is guilty of an offense if he engages in a sexual act with another person, . . . [and] the other person is, in fact, less than 12 years old.

Ginsburg (and her co-author) also recommends that the Mann Act be repealed. The Mann Act is a federal law passed in 1910 which makes it a felony to engage in interstate or foreign commerce transport of “any woman or girl for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose”.

From Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, pp. 98-99:

The Mann Act . . . poses the invasion of privacy issue in an acute form. The Mann Act also is offensive because of the image of women it perpetuates . . . . It was meant to protect from ‘the villainous interstate and international traffic in women and girls,’ ‘those women and girls who, if given a fair chance, would, in all human probability, have been good wives and mothers and useful citizens. . . .’

In other words, if Ruth Bader Ginsburg has her way, sexual abuse of children 12-years or older would not be a crime, nor would child sex trafficking.

Ginsburg will be 84 next month. May President Trump be given the opportunity to nominate her replacement on the Supreme Court.

All Shall Bow

2016-09-27-1475005346-7775266-middlechurchkneelingprayer2

“Blessed be the Name of the Lord, blessed be His Name. All praise, honor, and glory to the Most High God for He is the Mighty One who all shall bow before.

Let not the blemishes of sin encapsulate the heart. Repentance, oh so sweet, when it comes forth from the heart. Let our sins be as open wounds, uncovered. Let the healing balm of Gilead sooth.

The sins of the world lay barren in the desert. The sun brings the vultures from the floors of hell. Kings will fall, lands will perish, for repentance lay dead as a jackal starved of food.

No man shall live with no water, no child born with no milk. All shall perish in the days to come for only One can save them.

Repent all you who desire life. Repent all you who care. Who care that all may see the Light, the Light of eternity.”
