The Death of a Free Internet

Protect Our Free Internet_jpg

What does it mean for Christians?

Last Thursday, December 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in favor of doing away with the free Internet as we know it. This was a terrible mistake and will have a devastating effect on Christian and conservative websites, in particular. Pray for God’s intervention and call your congressman and urge them to overturn the recent FCC vote. Don’t let the big cable and phone companies silence the gospel of Jesus Christ on the Internet by limiting access to Christian websites to their paid subscribers only.

How did this happen?

I believe in part, the American people did not fully understand what #NetNeutrality was all about and did not see the dangers of allowing the FCC to abolish it. In addition, I am sure that certain corrupt politicians in government were paid off by these big corporations to pass this new law and allow the FCC to approve a measure that allows Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) like ATT, Comcast, Verizon and others to block, throttle, and prioritize content on the Internet if they wish to (and you know they wish to, since there is more money to be made in the process).

Net Neutrality 3

These companies already control your ability to access the Internet. They have made billions of dollars doing so by charging you a monthly fee for your Internet service. Now, however, they will be able to charge you even more money to access your favorite websites. If you don’t pay them, your accessibility to these same websites will be slowed down or throttled (varying loading times) to where you will be frustrated by having to wait for them to appear, or be blocked from viewing them altogether.

The Christian Coalition said, “Independent voices and political groups are especially vulnerable. Costs will skyrocket to post and share video and audio clips, silencing bloggers and amplifying the big media companies. Political organizing could be slowed by the handful of dominant Internet providers who ask advocacy groups or candidates to pay a fee to join the ‘fast lane.'”

These major ISP’s will also have the authority to prioritize content, which is a violation of our free speech right in the American constitution. With this new sovereignty of “prioritizing” content, the big corporations will decide what websites you can see, and which ones you cannot. They alone, will determine what is “good content” and what is “bad for our business.” Obviously, this kind of unrestricted power in the hands of greedy corporations will eventually lead to the censorship of Christian ministries who are preaching the truth, as well as conservative organizations, who they determine are speaking a message that is “politically incorrect” or “offensive” to certain segments of their Internet customers.

You can see how this will finally lead to the censorship of Christian ministries and preachers who speak out against the sins of the people, corruption in business and government, and unjust laws and actions everywhere.

Fortunately, several states are now upset with the FCC’s new ruling and are threatening to take them to court. Maura Healey, the Attorney General for the State of Massachusetts said, “The Federal Communications Commission completely failed to justify this decision and we will be suing to stand up for the free exchange of ideas and to keep the American people in control of internet access.”

Revelation 13A prelude to the Antichrist

Bible prophecy predicts that prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ, the Antichrist will take control of the world’s government, economy, religion and media during the seven years of tribulation (Read the Book of Revelation, chapter 13). One of the ways he will be able to do so is by controlling television, radio, newspapers, the Internet and other public media by censoring the Christian message. This new Internet law abolishing net neutrality is a prelude to the coming of the Antichrist.

What can you do?

First of all, pray without ceasing – for God to delay or defeat this new FCC law before it can be implemented. Also, contact your Congressman and Senators and let them know that you want to keep #NetNeutrality in place, and the free market in control of the Internet. The Congressional Switchboard number is: 202-224-3121.

Most importantly, pray the following prayer – for God to protect Christians everywhere and be our fortress against the vicious enemies that rise up against us in these last days.

God Became A Man

Nativity

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” — John 1:14

During this time of year most of the Christian world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The truth is, no one knows the exact day and month Jesus was actually born since the Bible never documents this detail. The important thing to focus on is this: that God came down from heaven and took on the form of man, in order to die on the cross for our sins.

The apostle John called Jesus the “Word.”

He was the logos, the embodiment of God’s message to us – a lost and sinful humanity. His message was clear: Unless you repent and turn back to God you will be lost for eternity. “There is only one way back to God the Father”, Jesus said, “and only one truth and one way to forgiveness from sin and eternal life, and following Me is the only way” (John 14:6).

Jesus, Immanuel (God with us), lived among us, taught us by word and deed how God expects us to live. He was full of grace and truth and we beheld His glory. Finally, He was crucified on the cross to purchase the redemption for all of us who would believe upon Him.

Let us never lose focus of the real reason we celebrate this season of the year. It’s all about Jesus Christ, and the greatest gift that God has given us: His only begotten Son, the holy lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill among men. We praise You, we bless You, we worship You, we glorify You, we give You thanks for your great glory, Lord Jesus our Savior and King!

God Is Not Sadistic

Eternal Torment_jpg“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” — John 3:17

Many Christian religious sects mistakenly portray almighty God as a cruel, sadistic deity in the sky who takes pleasure in the suffering and death of the wicked.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Jesus confirmed this when He said in John 3:17 that our Heavenly Father loves us and sent His Son to save humanity, not to condemn it. Because God is love, His actions are motivated by love. He is merciful and kind and does not take pleasure in watching people suffer or supposedly burn in hell throughout eternity. This false doctrine of eternal torment was invented by sadistic men and religious impostors who corrupted the true message of Christ.

The difference between eternal destruction and eternal torment.

Eternal torment for the wicked is NOT biblical. However, eternal destruction IS. After the final judgement, men who refused the love and salvation of God and persisted in evil works and deeds will be destroyed in the Lake of Fire, along with Satan and his demons. But that will be the end of them, since God is also just and must judge the unrighteous. For evil doers, there will be no future existence nor reincarnation nor any kind of consciousness. Only the righteous will live forever with Jesus in the New Heavens and the New Earth.

Let us pray that God will deliver us today from every form of sin that entangles our actions and pollutes our hearts so that we may be counted worthy of His mercy, forgiveness and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

Let us redeem the precious time here in this short life and invest it well for the kingdom of God. When Christ returns, eternal peace and happiness will be our reward. Furthermore, no eye has ever seen or ear has ever heard what God has planned for those that love Him and are odedient to His will (1 Cor. 2:9).

Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!

A Historic Day for Israel

Israel FlagPresident Donald Trump today announced that the US now recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, overturning decades of official US policy. Mr Trump described the move as “a long overdue step” to advance the Middle East peace process.

This is a monumental day in history and in the relationship between the United Stated and Israel. For centuries, the prophetic Scriptures have pointed to the day when Jerusalem would not only be the capital of the Jewish state but also the center of God’s kingdom on the earth. We, as believers in Jesus Christ, must remind ourselves to regularly pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” – Psalm 122:6

The House Church Model vs The Modern Mega Church

House churches or Mega Churches: Which are better?

Today, most modern mega churches are based on the “Addition Model”, that is, when the membership grows beyond the capacity of the building, they just add an addition to the church, or build a bigger building. But the New Testament church is the opposite of this, it is based on a “Multiplication Model.” When the church membership outgrows
