A Flying Squirrel, A Boxer and Many Beaches, and the strength of the salvation of a false believer...What do they have in common?

Rocky the Flying Squirrel was super popular back in the 60's when I was growing up! He always hung around Bullwinkle. What a pair they made!

Rocky Balboa was very popular back in the 80's and 90's for his never give up boxing style. He hung around his old time trainer (the penguine from the original batman series). What a pair they made!

The rocky beaches can be both beautiful and bad at the same time. Beautiful to look at, but not so great to walk on next to the beach. It can always be seen hanging out with lots of water! What an awe inspiring pair these two make!

And some fell upon a rock, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. Luke 8:6

Now the parable is this, the seed is the word of God. Luke 8:11

They on the rock{are they}, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation, fall away. Luke 8:13

Being a Christian can be very popular at any time. That was not always the case. Men and women were killed for their faith in Jesus Christ. Even today, in other parts of the world, Christians are being killed for believing in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The problem is here in America. We have a President that denies that this country ever has been and is not currently a Christian nation. He does not want to offend his muslim friends. There will come a time here in America where the Christians will be killed for their faith. Either theyaccept Jesus or deny Him. One will give life here on earth, the other will give life eternally in heaven. For the one who gains life on earth, he will lose his life to hell and forever be in damnation, forever in suffering pain and agony. Many self professing Christians accepted Jesus by simply saying a magical little prayer and they think that will get them into heaven. Unless they repent, they will fall away from God and they will go to hell. In spite of their supposed goodness, they will still be tossed into the eternal fire.

How many people do you know that lack fruit? They call themselves Christians but do not want to go to church? They say the church is full of hypocrites. They say they are a good person because of Jesus even though, they still lie, cheat, fornicate, commit adultery, blaspheme God's Holy Name, break the Sabbath, worship idols and so on. They do not understand that it is not their goodness that will get them into heaven. It is also not only calling on the name of Jesus and saying you believe in Him. The Devil believes and he trembles. Every knee shall bow, and that includes you and me. The saved as well as the unsaved. The liar, the thief and the homosexual will all bow down to face the God of wrath and be sentenced to eternal hell. Only those people who repent of their sins will see heaven. Only those who accept Jesus as BOTH LORD AND SAVIOR will go to heaven.

Many people say they want to go to heaven, but they don't get it. Jesus will be there. They don't want to go to church because Jesus is there and His Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. They don't want to go to church because they would have to sit with other Christians. They say they want to go to heaven and at the same time, they deny the power of God to transform their lives. They continue to live in their sins. Girls sleeping with older men (unmarried), tattoo's all over their bodies, even though God's Word is against that. Blaspheming the name of God. Some people just do not want God to convict them of their sins while they are living here on earth because that would mean they would have to give up their sins. No, they would rather enjoy their sins for a season and hope they get saved before they die. That is not a good game to play with God.

Seed and bad rocky ground do not make a good match. When trials and temptations come, the person professing to be a Christian will fall away from the faith and his latter end will be worse that the first.

How is your seed planted? Good soil that allows you to grow strong regardless of what is happening to you? Or is it in the rocky ground? Where it lacks tears of a broken and contrite heart before God? You need to take a look at yourself in the mirror of God's Word, the Ten Commandments. Can you see just how sinful, sinfilled, you are? Repent of your sins today for today is the Day of Salvation!

The Love of God and the Wrath of God!

Are you ready for this? For a few years now I have been preaching the need to present the "whole" gospel message. Too many pastor's focus only on the grace of God and will tell people that God is love and that He loves everyone. No need to repent, or at least mention the word repentance. And definitely, no need to tell people that our God is a God of wrath. Pastor's you are deceiving your people when you do not tell them the whole gospel message. As a result of your inadequate preaching, people are running to all kinds of false teachings as if their heads were cut off. Running, running, running and never getting anywhere spiritually.

2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

The Love of God

Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, [be] with you all. Amen.

2 Thessalonians 3:5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love [of God], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Deuteronomy 30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Ezekiel 16:8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time [was] the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

Romans 15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in [your] prayers to God for me;

1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

The Love of God (lacking or conditional)

Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

John 5:42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

1 John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

1 John 3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels [of compassion] from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

Deuteronomy 10:12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

Deuteronomy 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
(did our friend meg see this? I sure hope so)

Amos 5:15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

The Wrath of God

Psalm 78:31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Col 3:6 For which things sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Rev 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

Rev 15:7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

Rev 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

Exodus 32:11 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

Deu 9:7 Remember, [and] forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.

2Ch 24:18 And they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.

2Ch 29:10 Now [it is] in mine heart to make a covenant with the LORD God of Israel, that his fierce wrath may turn away from us.

2Ch 30:8 Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers [were, but] yield yourselves unto the LORD, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve the LORD your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.

2Ch 36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till [there was] no remedy.

Ezr 5:12 But after that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven unto wrath, he gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon.

Ezr 7:23 Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?

Ezr 8:22 For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God [is] upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath [is] against all them that forsake him.

Ezr 10:14 Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.

Job 20:23 [When] he is about to fill his belly, [God] shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain [it] upon him while he is eating.

Job 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.

Psa 59:13 Consume [them] in wrath, consume [them], that they [may] not [be]: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

Eze 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Rom 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.

Jesus spoke more about hell than he did about heaven. Do you realize that? If you are in a church that has a poor pastor who only speaks of grace, then you most likely did not know this. Are you seeking prophets to tell you about your life? (are you listening megan?) then you will have to ignore certain scriptures to please your self.


The signs of the times are upon us. The rapture of the church can happen at any time now. But only the church will be raptured. Only those who are truly saved. Few there be that enter in the narrow gate. Will you be one of the few? If you continue to live your life as though God does not care what sins you are involved with then by all means enjoy your sins for a season. but beware ... God is not mocked! He demands obedience to His Word and if you are living in disobedience to His Word then you will not go to heaven. Examine yourself today. Are you living in sin? Do you make provisions to sin? In other words, do you set out to sin knowing full well it is against God's Holy Word? Do you make plans to sin? If you are part of a mega church (or even a small church for that matter) that only preaches grace with no mention of God's wrath, you can pretty much bet that the pastor of that church is not saved himself. To not mention the wrath of God is to HATE you so much that he does not care if you go to hell or not. Does the wrath of God scare you? GOOD!

Psalm 34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Proverbs 16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.

Proverbs 23:17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but [be thou] in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Watch this video. There are true preachers of God's Word and there are false teachers. Do we as Christians know how to discern the truth any more than the world does?

May God forgive us for not having a Fear of Him. A healthy fear of God is necessary to becoming a true follower of Christ. Come to Him for the right reason. Don't fall into the lie that God is ONLY a God of love. He is a God of wrath as well and unless ye repent of your sins and put your faith and trust in Him ye shall likewise perish!

The Sin of Facebook or is it Your sin?

If ur gay, it's a sin. If ur bisexual, ur confused. If ur skinny, ur on drugs. If ur fat, ur a slob. If ur dressed up, ur conceited. If u speak ur mind, ur a bitch. If u don't say anything, u must be miserable. If u cry, ur a drama queen. If u have male friends, ur a whore. If u defend urself, ur a troublemaker. U can't do anything without being criticized. If ur proud of who u are copy and paste this. Love me or hate me, but u will never change me!

And the above comments are seen all over the place on Facebook by people who profess to be Christians. They make comments for the whole world to see and yet they mock the very words of God by the way they live their lives.

You will find pictures posted for the world to see by people who claim to be Christians. And what are they doing in those pictures? They are pictures of girls laying in bed with a guy that is not their husband. Showing them kissing and making comments about how they like to cuddle together. Showing off pictures of their latest tattoo's and talking about their latest experience with prophets at their church. Watch the following clip about one such prophet and you will begin to see how dangerous Facebook can be in bringing other people into a false knowledge of Christ.

Now let's take it a step further.
Many people on Facebook have over 500 friends listed. What does that have to do with anything? Take the start of this post as an example. You have 500 people who are your "friends" and they are all reading what you, a supposed Christian are posting. They are seeing that you, that supposed Christian, are saying it is okay to be gay, or bi, or on drugs, or anything at all. Why? Because all you have to do is be proud of who you are.

The Bible speaks of someone in the Bible that had over 700 wives and concubines. Solomon. The son of David. So what is the danger here? Besides the very obvious, the danger comes from trying to please each one. Solomon tried to please his wives to the point that he fell away from God. He erected tall places in honor of the gods of the women he was married to. He place a one such piece in Moab in honor of their god that they worshipped.

So what we have here on Facebook is the desire to please the friends. It no longer is about standing up for God and His HOLY WORD, no, it is all about saying things that will be popular to the masses. Show pictures of how you love to live in your sin with a man or a woman. Post comments about false prophecies because it makes you look spiritual to the world. Post pictures of a false document that says you are ordained of God by of all places, a universalist site ( for those of you that don't know, a universalist is a person that believes ALL people go to heaven. There is no hell. That means that an atheist, a mormon, an agnostic, a satan worshipper, a witch, call all get ordained to preach whatever they want to preach).

Facebook is also a place where you can see indecent, immoral pictures of people who name the name of Christ. Pictures of skimpy outfits that come within a half inch of showing something that ought not to be seen publicly. Girls kissing each other and promoting homosexual activities. Guys saying don't judge homosexuals, that is God's place. All the while forgetting that we as Christians are told to judge those within the church.

Facebook has become a place where anything goes, anything can be said, anything can be shown, anything can be presented as truth to the whole world. It is a place where the "world" resides. We as christians are not to be of the world, we are to be separated from the world. We still live in the world, but our lifestyle should exemplify Christ living within us. Sadly, too many professing Christians have failed miserably in their quest to live out a godly life for the world to see. Lord have mercy on them that do such abominable things.

From a pastor who took 6 months to speak to a dying lost man about Christ, to the same man who plays soft music behind his preaching so as to create an "effect" of emotions in the service, to the young person who follows all kinds of false teachings and displays them for the world to see, to the person who gets every kind of tattoo because they want to "glorify" God, to the ones who tell vulgar jokes and use vulgar language for the world to see, to the ones who want you to be like the world by embracing the you that is in you, and not the Christ that should be living within you, to the person who openly mocks God with his satanic worship, to the person who is more worried about having 1000 friends on Facebook that they will do and say anything to get them to be their friends. to the person who denies God, to the people who say in church, "This is not the time nor the place for Scripture," to the person who hates people for standing up for Christ, to the person who takes advantage of little girls and yet calls himself a Christian, to the person who cheats on his wife, to the old man sleeping with a young girl, to the people who support gay rights, abortions and still believes it is okay to claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior, to the person who leads a major denomination and will stand up for hypocrisy instead of God's Word, and to all the people who spend more time on Facebook than they do getting into God's Word...

You have been removed from my friends list on Facebook. I am so sick and tired of supposed Christians behaving in a way that does not glorify God. I want to see people truly desiring to please God. It is my desire to see God glorified in all things. I am hated, despised and ridiculed for being a faithful follower of Christ. Praise God because I know they hated Him first, even though they claim to know Jesus. A day will come when He will say to them, Depart from Me you worker of iniquity, I never knew you.

It is one thing to sin. We all do that.
It is quite another thing to sin and post it for the whole world to see.
It is quite another thing to embrace the sin and be proud of it.
It is quite another thing to share your sin with others in hopes of influencing them to follow the same god you do (not the God of the bible).

Which preacher would you rather listen to?
Joel Osteen or Paul Washer?

Now the question is this...
Who do you listen to? Jesus or man? Facebook or the Bible?
Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

Has Facebook distracted you from what is really important? How many hours a day do you spend on Facebook? How many minutes a day do you spend in God's Word? Anything that takes you away from God is an idol. The sin of Facebook is the fact that it breaks the first and the second commandments!

And when you top it off by promoting things of the devil, you expose yourself for whose you really are. You are either a child of God or a child of the devil.
Everything has its place. But how you use those things will determine where your heart lies. Repent of your Facebook sins and clean up your life and walk in obedience to the One who laid down His life for you. God is not to be mocked and millions of people EVERYDAY mock Him by the way they parade themselves around as Christians all the while, living for the devil.

I pray that God will open your eyes today and that you will live a life pleasing to the Lord of Hosts and King of Kings. Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior and He is also Judge. Who will you face when you die?
