Commentary: Paganism and this world

by Guy LaMar

WHEN pagans (servants of Satan the Devil) entwine their LIES with the living TRUTH of God, that is when this world embraces those lies to stick.

It is EASY to spot a person who is under the influence of Satan the Devil. The person is embracing worldliness, of which the LORD our God says to be no part of.

For one thing, the person is keeping all the pagan holidays – such as New Year’s, X-Mas, Halloween, and St. Valentine’s Day, and they don’t care to learn anything of the LORD God’s TRUTH!

They want to build upon all their worldly excuses of this present evil world.

But, the LORD God’s people are to ‘come out of her, my people’! Come out of the ways of this world.

This is a very reason why His people have been called to His living TRUTH! ’ For many are called, but few are chosen’ – Matthew 22:14.

“ … ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues’” – Revelation 18:4.

Only a few are chosen by the LORD God and accepted by God the Father as His because only a few actually keep His commandments, His statutes, ordinances, and judgments, and REJECT the ways of this sinful present evil world.

Multiple millions claim they love God. Yet, these multiple millions only love God for the sake of pleasing their families. They will place their families above the LORD God so as to please their family members MORE THAN THE LORD GOD!

Our Lord Jesus Christ emphatically tells us –

’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me’ – Matthew 10:37.

So, ANYONE who loves a family member more than JESUS CHRIST is not worthy of Him!

Friends, it’s God’s Way or Satan the Devil’s way. You CANNOT have both. Sadly, the majority of our peoples around the world choose Satan the Devil’s way over the LORD God’s.

Our peoples that claim to be “Christian” and yet keep and celebrate these pagan holidays are FALSE CHRISTIANS! They are but FAKES!

Friends – TIME IS QUICKLY RUNNING OUT! Let us, as our Lord Jesus Christ says, work the works of Him while it is still day; the night is coming when no one can work! – cf. John 9:4.

For me and my household, we will SERVE THE LORD GOD of the HOLY BIBLE! Not some fluffy false god that is simply made up by some fraud church!

Again –

“’ I call heaven and earth as witnesses TODAY against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life’” – Deuteronomy 30:19.

No in-between stuff will work.

Also in this commentary: I recently heard a person tell some people that they “knew” me. Yet oddly enough, I have never seen that person in my life.

Well, as it turns out, that person doesn’t know me. That person had only seen and heard me in my sermons on the Internet, which have been circulating around the world for over three years!

I spoke to a minister friend about this and he said that it happens to many people who are exposed to the public via social media platforms and global video platforms such as YouTube and UGETube.

I, personally, had never thought of this before, as to just how powerful social media can be.

People from all around the world can “get to know you” from your social media posts or videos which they see on social media and video platforms. And many people build inner relationships with us just by what they see in our sermons each week on the Internet. They come to think they know us. This is yet another reason why God’s true servants should be on GUARD! Never let your guard down as a true servant of the Eternal our God! Be A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD! – cf. Matthew 5:14-16. Do not fall into a trap and get caught up in all this worldliness.

Our peoples who are of this world will show hate and contempt to those who SPEAK THE TRUTH OF GOD! Notice the words of our Master and Elder Brother –

’ Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22) And you will be hated by all FOR MY NAME’S SAKE. But he who endures to the end will be saved’ – Matthew 10:21-22.

Being worldly is simply being carnal. And to be carnal is to be an enemy of the LORD God.

Sadly, if a person who is worldly comes across any of our sermons, they are more than likely to spew hate and contempt towards us because we preach and teach the living word of God – the Holy Bible. And we tend to not only be bold, but we also delve into His word deeply at times. We DO NOT preach or teach fluffy things – no fake religious garbage. It’s God’s living word often backed up with reputable secular historical FACTS to expound upon His living word. We preach and teach the REAL JESUS, and not this long-haired feminine that this world’s “Christianity” has come to worship. So when people come to say, “I know you.” We follow the apostle John’s admonition – to test the spirits, whether they are of God.

As we are getting ever-closer to the end of this present evil world, we are more than likely dealing with a person who just happened to come across one of our sermons who is a member of the plethora of religions of this world and literally hates us because we truly belong to JESUS CHRIST!

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets [as well as ministers and teachers] have gone out into the world” – 1 John 4:1.

Of such, they may talk the talk but they DO NOT walk the walk. They DO NOT serve the true LORD God of the Holy Bible!

Notice the word of the apostle Paul – inspired by the very Spirit of the Eternal God –

“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit [the Spirit of God, the very mind of Jesus Christ], the things of the Spirit. 6) For to be carnally minded is death [see: Revelation 20:14-15; 21:8], but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7) Because the carnal mind is enmity [HOSTILE] against God; for it is not subject to the Law of God, nor indeed can be. 8) So then, those who are in the flesh CANNOT PLEASE GOD” – Romans 8:5-8.

“And DO NOT be conformed by this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. … 14) Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse” – Romans 12:2, 14.

Also –

“Only fear [with reverence] the LORD, and serve Him in TRUTH with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you” – 1 Samuel 12:24.

Notice here the very word of our living God WHO HAS COME IN THE FLESH– our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ –

’ You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15) Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but ON A LAMPSTAND, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven’ – Matthew 5:14-16.

’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45) that you may be [children] of your Father in heaven; …’ – Matthew 5:44.

Also, God’s living inspired eternal word in the proverbs –

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate” – Proverbs 8:13.

“When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the HUMBLE is wisdom” – Proverbs 11:2.

“Everyone proud in heart is an ABOMINATION to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished” – Proverbs 16:5.

God Bless, in Jesus’ holy name,

Additional things to think about...

When Does God's New Year Begin?Let me begin today by asking these questions – “How did the celebration of New Year’s ever begin!?” “Why is the beginning of a new year placed in the dead of winter!?” “Where did this custom originate!? Did it come from Almighty God!?” [...]
