Wool Over The Eyes

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Christians are some of the laziest people I know. They don’t study the word of the God they supposedly serve, even though God says in His word that they are to do so to show themselves approved, don’t yield to and therefore aren’t led by the Holy Spirit of the same God and choose to remain ignorant, not only in regards to His ways, but especially to the ways of the enemy. As a result, they can be influenced more by the ways of the enemy than they are of God. The culmination affect of all of this that they have zero discernment for truth and, as Charles Spurgeon noted, could care less about it, leaving them extraordinarily vulnerable to deception. Quite the conundrum.
For the last 3 years I’ve been conducting a secret survey through posts on Facebook. It didn’t start out that way, but I noticed a pattern developing in response to my posts concerning anything non-Muslim vs anything anti-Muslim. The results are that when anything anti-Muslim is posted, the response is extremely low, registering less than half the number of likes or comments as compared to say, a Christian teaching or even a photo of mine. As messed up as Facebook can be, it does represent a microcosm of how people, especially Americans, and specifically the category of Christian Americans, think and what they believe - and what they think and believe about Islam is very scary. More ignorance and more vulnerability to the ways of the enemy. Islam is not, nor has it ever been, throughout its 1400 year history, a ‘religion of peace’. It isn’t even a religion at all, but a demonic social-political system of dominance and control over its practitioners, fueled by hatred of anything of the one true God. The punchline is that the end goal of all Islam is to rule and control the entire planet by wiping out anyone who isn’t Muslim - and especially Christians and Jews. There is even a Quranic provision, al taqiyya, that instructs Muslims to blatantly lie about their agenda and intentions in order to fulfill this goal. The tally of the slaughtered thus far - 60,000,000. Islam makes Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and every other mass murdering culture look like amateurs. Islam is so screwed up they can't even agree among themselves. The proof is that more Muslims have been slaughtered by other Muslims than even their sworn enemies. A true system of the antichrist. If you don’t know this, you fall into the category of the completely ignorant and are completely blind to the truth - just as my post survey concludes.
This past week, Jeanine Pirro had the sense to call out Islam and the rep from MN for what they are. The result? Fox took her off the air! I urge all believers to wake up to the absolute evil that is Islam. Listen to this report and if you find anything wrong with it, you’ve already been deceived. God’s Word also states that He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse her. America has always been pro-Israel and has been extraordinarily blessed for it, but if the left’s rhetoric continues, aided by demonic political correctness, we are well on our way to the latter.

On Repentance For The Sins of Others

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been in a prayer meeting when someone brings up repenting for the sins of the nation, like making same-sex marriage the law of the land, supporting abortion or for the individual participants involved in any sinful activities.
There is a tremendous misunderstanding regarding repentance for the sins of others in the body of Christ that needs to be corrected and that is that under no circumstances can anyone *ever* repent for the sins of anyone else, period. The entire concept of repentance, as a necessary element of salvation, is that it is personal and individual. The only one that you can repent for is you. Your salvation is as personal and individual as you are and thus, so is your repentance. Attempting to repent for *anyone* else’s sin is an exercise in spiritual futility, so stop it.
That being said, we can confess the sins of others, including generational sins, and even intercede on their behalf, giving them up to the mercy of God. An excellent example of this is found in Nehemiah 1:5-7, in which he quotes Daniel 9. Notice at no time does Nehemiah, Daniel, or any other prophet, ever attempt to repent for the sins of others - because it can’t be done.
