Facebook Banned owensborocojc.blogspot.com

Freedom of speech and the expression and teaching's of one's faith are being censored directly and indirectly by "Big Tech."

I was surprised to learn that Facebook banned any sharing from their Facebook app. for our blog page owensborocojc.blogspot.com, because they claim it violates their "Community Standards." Subsequently, it emerged that every attempt to share or even mention an article from our blog page, including in private messages, would actively be blocked by the world's largest social network, with the only explanation being, "the link you tried to visit goes against our community standards."

I was also surprised - by this action - this seemingly arbitrary act of persecution and censorship, nor since their action, was I contacted by Facebook with an explanation of just what "Community Standard" was being violated.

Of course, and I do agree, with it being a private company, with its own set of corporate "ethics," Facebook has every right to impose whatever it so desires on their media sharing platform. It is entirely possible that one or more posts (such as Minister Garrett's sermon series - Toxic Philosophy) were flagged by Facebook's "triggered" readers who merely alerted censorship, therefore blocking all content.

I tried contacting Facebook directly and was told that this issue cannot be resolved by phone. The voice recording suggested their online "Help" center - which is utterly useless.

It is also entirely possible that Facebook simply no longer wants its users to share our content. Content with the unashamed premise of proclaiming to the world the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the ultimate Plan of God. For our mission and our very purpose is to follow the admonition of Jesus Christ (a very Name which surely the large majority of the 37,773 which work for Facebook hate), for He said, 'FEED MY SHEEP!' We do the will of God the Father and Jesus Christ. To preach the glorious Gospel Message - the good news of Jesus Christ, of His forgiveness, of His atoning sacrifice, and of the opportunity for all of us, to have Jesus Christ as our great High Priest and to live under the promises of the New Covenant - and to someday be a part of the Kingdom of God!

Friends, was freedom of the press and its demise prophesied in the pages of the Bible?

Indeed it was!!

Friends, THIS MOST IMPORTANT Work of the LORD, in this end-time, surely cannot be done without the freedom of the press! However, don't get me wrong, indeed, Matthew 24:14 - the very Words of Jesus Christ says, “’And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.’” 

Minister Michael C. Garrett said:

"But that’s not how the WCG read it. And in truth, many descendants of the WCG continue to practice the mistranslation, cause here’s what THEY say – “And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a WARNING and a WITNESS unto all nations, and THEN shall the end come.” Well, He just said the TRUTH OF GOD will be preached, but human beings incorrectly, I think, came up with the idea that THEY would be the ones doing the preaching! And in TRUTH – in the end-time – that Message will come from JESUS CHRIST and His very few [possibly 12] chosen “end-time prophets.” It’s not referring to printing presses, and radio stations, and T.V. and all of that, which the WCG tried to convince its members, “Hey, we’ve got to pump out all this information. So send more money. Send more money. We’ve got to pump out more information.” “Because if we don’t do this job, Jesus Christ can’t return.” Well, Jesus Christ isn’t going to rely upon the sometimes-half-hearted efforts of human beings! He’s going to take care of that job Himself!

God lays it upon the hearts of His servants and the Body of Christ to publicly proclaim GRAVE WARNINGS to the spiritual 'lost sheep of Israel,' and the world at large. For we are told in Ezekiel 33:1-7 that if a watchman sees what is coming and warns not of the approaching 'swords' - a prophetic symbol of military devastation - does not 'blow the trumpet' - God will hold him personally responsible.

So this is one reason why we recently promoted our blog page through Facebook from May 11th to the 16th reaching 52,653 friends in Nepal, Central Africa, Cameroon, Cambodia, Cote d'Ivoire, Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Chile, Ireland, Colombia, Congo, Dakar Senegal, and Costa Rica, before Facebook deemed the blog site against their "Community Standards."

Yet, while God's living Word - the Bible - does place a duty upon His servant's to warn this world - now and especially with the dozen or so end-time prophets of God prophesied in Revelation 11 - we will not always have the freedom of the press.

And the persecution excuse which the government's of the world will use is that God's divine Message IS TOO DISTURBING and POLITICALLY INCORRECT to be allowed on our social media platforms.

The prophet Elijah, as an example, was drug before King Ahab for the ancient equivalent of "disturbing the peace." 

"Then it happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, 'Is that you, O troubler of Israel?'" - 1 Kings 18:17. 

Of course, Elijah was not troubling the House of Israel, he was bringing some very disastrous news from Almighty God to King Ahab and his government - verse 18. Also, the religious and political authorities in the days of the prophet Amos tried to quite him from speaking God's Message - because the Message was too controversial!

"Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, 'Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the House of Israel. The land is not able to bear all his words. ... Then Amaziah said to Amos: 'Go, you seer! Flee to the land of Judah. There eat bread, And there prophesy. But never again prophesy at Bethel, ...'" - Amos 7:10, 12-13.

The Bible shows us that evermore restrictions are soon to come:

"'Behold, the days are coming,' says the Lord GOD, 'That a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, Nor of thirst for water, But of hearing [and even reading I might add] the Words of the LORD. 12) They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the Word of the LORD, But shall not find it.'" - Amos 8:11-12.

There is coming a time, so says our Lord GOD, when the Word of God will not be found. And that would seem to be because the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God will be taken off the internet. In the 21st century, the internet is accessed by people in every country, and thus some type of internet restriction and or suspension, or removal is coming.

Now, while "Big Tech" companies are setting the stage for this, like Google and Facebook, the Bible shows that a European power will arise and essentially force people to accept two particular leaders - a political leader and a false religious leader. And, Satan the devil will give power to these two authorities:

"Then I [apostle John] stood on the sand of the sea [the Mediterranean Sea]. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns a blasphemous name. 2) Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3) And I saw one of his heads, as it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4) So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, 'Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?' 5) And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6) Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7) It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8) All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." - Revelation 13:1-8.

Sadly, notice that people will be pressured with economic threats and even death for not accepting this end-time European leader and this false religious leader:

"'Then I [apostle John] saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12) And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13) He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14) And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15) He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16) He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and [bond], to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17) and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark, or the number of his name. 18) Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.'" - Revelation 13:11-18.

Places like Google and Facebook should NOT be pushing to follow the European model. Yet, sadly, they are pushing towards everyone having the 'mark of the beast' - be sure to watch Mr. Garrett's informative sermon - Mark Of The Beast. The European model will not end well for the United States of America (cf. Daniel 11:39).

Evermore censorship is coming! A totalitarian police state is also coming (cf. Revelation 13). 

Soon the 'famine of the Word' will come.

Be sure to watch Minister Michael C. Garrett's sermon - Repent For Salvation.
He begins by sharing some thoughts concerning health, and teaching from the living Word of God - that in time God Himself will correct you!
For there are times when Almighty God and Jesus Christ just say, 'ENOUGH! I'm done with it! No more patience, no more time! Here comes the judgment!' And we hope and pray that He doesn't do that to us - prematurely. But God says that He will correct us.
