Commentary: Homosexuality

You can also listen to this commentary. Just click the orange play button below.

by Guy C. LaMar


Well, greetings friends. This is G.C. LaMar, and I’m going to talk to you today about homosexuality. What does the Bible have to say about homosexuality?

It has a lot to say about it.

In fact, … here we are in the society that we live in today – where a world consumed (well, mostly the United States of America, but also all parts of the world as well) – is consumed with the acceptance of homosexuality! It’s a great perversion that’s going on around the world! And it is of the Devil.

Now, we live in the USA where it is said that between 2 to 3 percent of the population are – what one would call an admitted homosexual. Whereas 80 to 90 percent (that’s a high number) of the population within the USA accepts homosexuality as a free-choice lifestyle.

Now, does the LORD God accept it?

Absolutely positively no – the LORD God does not.

Should a true Christian accept it?

Absolutely positively no – they should not. Because they are to be of the character of Jesus Christ – which is God in the flesh.

The LORD God shows us through the living word of God that it is not to be something welcomed or accepted.

In Leviticus 18:22 – “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.’”

The LORD God is speaking to men here. And God’s word continues that women are not to do the same with women or beasts.

Leviticus 20:13 – “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

Well, speaking of that eternal death that is coming – that will be their fate. If they do not repent. They must turn away from that lifestyle.

Now, of course, there are those people who have become so addicted to it, and have been brought up in it – that is all they know.

There is also a Scripture that speaks about – how the LORD God will heal the misguided who do not know what they do not know. They will be healed. They will be presented a different Way in the kingdom of God.

Romans 1:26-27 – “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27) Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

And, of course, it is that which is coming to them – eternal death.


Now, the various diseases that mankind has brought upon themselves – such as the human immunodeficiency virus (AIDS) came from (and you can research the history of it) monkeys. A man was involved with beastiality. 1 He had involved himself with a monkey, and then the man had sexual relations with people, and it just went from that. He, or one of his victims had come to the States – or other countries – and it spiraled out of control. In the homosexual community.

These days they have drugs that keep the disease at bay – for the most part.

There are also so many other terrible diseases that are out in the world caused by the acts of homosexuality. 2 And, this is a sad commentary of the mental state of the world when you look at the people that are involved with this lifestyle – their mental state. 3 Men wanting to be women in their ideology of what women are supposed to be like. They come up with these effeminate activities and ways of acting – and such. And in doing so they make themselves an abomination unto the LORD God. The LORD God’s own word says not to be a “sissy.” A man isn’t to be effeminate. And women are not to be emasculate. And yet, women today are taking on the position more so than ever – more than any other generation. They are becoming even more liberated.

There was a situation I saw on a program – where a woman is a boxer. And she got in the ring with an amateur man (I guess she wanted to prove that she could knock out a man). Well, the man knocked her out. About two punches and she was completely knocked out. And he was just an amateur. And she was actually a pro-champion of the women’s division of boxing. And so, she had taken it upon herself that she could knock out a man. It goes against the LORD God’s design. She was trying to go against the LORD God’s design. And her results in doing so – she was knocked out. She got hurt.

Our society has turned against the LORD God!

We live in the government of the United States of America in which the government promotes these vile perverse abominations. These queers have gotten out there and have chanted that they are coming after the children! They say they are coming after your children! 4 Now, how disgusting is that!? This world has become a modernized Sodom and Gomorrah. It is an evil world that we live in now. It’s terrible.

In Jude 1:7 – “as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, …”

Isn’t that something!

“… are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

Well, that is their fate.

They are going to continue with this Satan-led, inspired and influenced, lifestyle. It’s going to end them in the lake of fire. Especially those who know the truth. They have been told the truth and yet have rejected the truth. Because they don’t want to accept the truth.

We also live in a society that would rather accept their thoughts on how their religion should be instead of the religion which our Lord Jesus Christ was about! They don’t want to be about the Way of true Christianity – they want to be about what they have made Christianity into. Those that are self-professing Christians. It’s just the same as the queers – they come up with their own philosophies and ideologies on how they can live their lifestyle. And they flaunt and smear it in everyone’s face and say, “love is love.” And now, we live in a government that says – if you speak against it, it’s a hate crime!

Well, the LORD God hates it!

And let me tell you friends, it’s not a crime – IT’S A FACT!

The LORD God says it’s an abomination – which means a hatred for it. And, the LORD God has zero tolerance for it. And yet, our societies are going to continue on with their abomination. They are going to continue smearing this perversion in our faces in the United States of America and other nations around the world.

I hear that in Jerusalem, Israel they recently had a queer pride parade. 5 Now, that’s a Middle Eastern area – where it can also get you killed being a queer. I know in Iran and Iraq it is a death sentence. There was a newscast on what they do with queers in these Middle Eastern lands. They will throw them off the top of a high-rise. This young queer man actually hugged the executioner that was about to throw him off the building and said that he forgave him. It was just unbelievable. He threw him off the building anyway.

But if these queers would repent and come before the LORD God and do the will of the LORD God – repent and turn away from that vile lifestyle and submit their life unto the LORD God – life would be completely different for them. They would have a better life. And not the life that Satan the Devil has placed before them. They wouldn’t have their life consumed with lust. Because that’s what it is. Perverted lust. They have allowed themselves to come over to this wickedness. The LORD God has allowed them to be of a reprobate mind.

1 Timothy 1:10 – says, the sexually immoral men who practice homosexuality, “fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.”

These are the people that will not have a part in the kingdom of God!

So, it is in their best interest to seek the will of the LORD God, to praise the LORD God, and to stay away from the wickedness they have allowed themselves to be about and TURN TO THE LORD GOD! And turn away from this lifestyle that is contrary to the LORD God.

Turning to the Book of Mark 10:6-9, “’ But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’

Here is another thing of this perverse society – they want to say that there is more than just male and female. That a man can identify as a female – or non-binary, or whatever they call it. Also, that they don’t even have to have a sexual identity. Maybe just have a symbol – like Prince. They are also trying to claim that men can have children. It is absolutely insane! We live in an insane world – where we have an actual government that goes along with this insanity! And promotes it! They are promoters of Satan the Devil! Whether you like it or don’t ─ it’s the Left political leaning party that is for the promotion of abominations.

How any man or woman can say they are a Christian and align themselves with the Left is mindboggling. You are aligning yourself with Satan the Devil! And, what he promotes.

Continuing, “’ For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.’

Yes. They come together as one. As God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ are One. As the father and mother are one. As the husband and wife are one.

“… ‘so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9) Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’

But that is what is happening in our societies. Mankind has decided to go away from the facts of what the LORD God has placed before us. Man and woman. And now they have all this other insanity of all these different sexual identities.

Friends, here is what we need to do – pray for those wicked doers, that they will come out of the Babylon wickedness that they have embraced. Pray for them – that the LORD God will intervene in their life and help them. And, if they come to repentance – true repentance – and come and turn unto the LORD God their life will be turned around.

There is a case – and I don’t remember what state – where a man was a practicing homosexual and he had AIDS. He was knocking at death’s backdoor. Well, because he turned unto the LORD God and repented, his life was spared, and he discovered that he did not have AIDS. True story.

Well, anyway friends, that’s all the time I have for now. Until next time, this is GC LaMar with my commentaries on various topics of the Bible. □

Letter to our Friends - February 19, 2024

P.O. BOX 6458

Leonard V Johnson
Pastor and Founder

Dearest Brethren and Friends:

Greetings, from a wet and raining West Central Florida!

What Is the Kingdom of God?

We are very excited to announce we have a new online booklet! “WHAT IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD?” in PDF format.

It has also been translated into Spanish.

And, it’s on our Soundcloud Radio channel in Kiswahili.

Let us consider God’s living eternal word –
“But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good. 14) And if anyone does not obey our word in this epistle, note that person and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed” – 2 Thessalonians 3:13-14.

“Finally, my brethren, REJOICE IN THE LORD. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.” – Philippians 3:1.
Brethren and Friends, grow not weary with the fact that the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries and our affiliated churches has put out some online PDF booklets in a few languages (English, Kiswahili, and Spanish). We do not think it tedious to continue providing you (in a language you are comfortable with) online PDF booklets, books, articles – as well as Soundcloud audio articles.

These translations help support the commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – Matthew 28:19-20.

REJOICE and BE THANKFUL that the LORD God has blessed you to support this MOST IMPORTANT WORK on Earth at this moment in time!
“Rejoice always, 17) pray without ceasing, 18) in EVERYTHING give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
The Idolatry of Celebrity Preachers:

Let me tell you a story. December 3rd, 2016, I attended an “invited” Sabbath service down in Tampa, FL with a church group (many of you know of which organization I speak of). We were meeting in a breakfast area of a hotel – roughly the size of an ordinary Taco Bell. An elderly gentleman had arrived and immediately took his attaché case and placed it in his seat. Maybe 15 minutes went by before he came and sat at his table. I got up and went and shook his hand and introduced myself, sat back down, and gave him a short version of how I got to where I am. The first words out of his mouth were, “You’re sitting in the wrong place! That’s where the minister and his wife sit” – and I wouldn’t be able to sit over there, as he pointed his finger because a large family comes and sits there. Nor would I be able to sit over there, again pointing with his finger, because so-and-so, and he mentioned them by name, sits there. “You can sit over there,” as he points to a table far across the room. Even though I was told over the phone that a dozen people attend this small congregation – it turned out that only six people showed up, including the minister and his wife. After the minister and his wife showed up, the three began to fawn over them incessantly. I have been witness to this type of response several times within these church organizations. I once, back in 1983, witnessed a member of a church sitting at the feet of a minister – admiring him as if he was a god – as he reveled in this adulation. Indeed, I am a proponent of having the utmost honor and respect for the leaders whom God has ordained who labor among us (Hebrews 13:7, 17), but that, in my opinion, had stepped over the edge and into idolatry.

When Cornelius met the apostle Peter and bowed before him, the apostle Peter rightly told him to get up, that he was only a man like himself (Acts 10). Now, there is certainly nothing wrong with emulating or following a true servant of Christ (and like Christ Jesus, we are servants (Mark 10:45), but there is something inherently wrong with idolizing a Christian leader. As an example: the 20th-century Protestant minister William Branham is often portrayed in photos with a “halo” above his head – as if he’s of divinity.

Friends, if the Church of Jesus Christ (and I emphasize this because Christ is the Head of the Church) would build according to the pattern set before us by Jesus Christ and on down to His apostles – in which the whole Body exists to edify and to minister to one another in love, then we would not depend merely upon one leader for the body to function. For there is but “one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” – Ephesians 4:6.

The Idol of Personal Prosperity:

Let me give you a scenario. There is this hierarchal leader of a church in whom you contact. Talking with him over the phone you get the impression that he is a most arrogant and conceited man, a boastful man, a not so “brotherly-love” sort of man. A man who insults you and calls you a BOOSTER. When, in reality, this egomaniac (this so-called leader who incessantly states, “I have a Ph.D. and a Th.D.!”) is nothing more than a whore for money. The apostle Paul indeed says we are not to “peddle” the Word of the Eternal (2 Corinthians 2:17). Upon hearing that you are not willing to drive across your state to “meet” with him – you never hear from him again. Thank God!

Friends, many of the churches of God may not want to admit (or they may not even be aware) that they are indeed peddling or whoring for money. This Ph.D.-wielding arrogant man very magnanimously talks a good talk – he speaks of freely giving, refusing to take any pay. But once you bite, demands on your family’s livelihood are made in the name of God – and if you refuse to comply or question there will be dire consequences when the “great” tribulation comes with the demise of your spiritual and eternal destruction. He believes that he is doing the best “Philadelphian” work that has ever been accomplished – in Africa. He is so desperate to “convert” the same people who have jumped from one church to another after another. Whoever has the money gets the newest “converts.” Of course, this white bwana truly believes that he is the savior of Africa with his regurgitated version of “truth.”

Sadly, there are so-called leaders whose main motive is to use their faith to leverage influence with God for personal gain. Indeed God delights in blessing all of His children – 3 John 2. Jesus tells us to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness for our material needs to be added to us – Matthew 6:33. I believe that using our faith to put our own needs first is a form of idolatry.

The Idol of Objectifying God:

Throughout these 43 years, I have come to witness a great many so-called leaders of the churches of this world, as well as so many of the churches of God, preach and promote an “I,” “me” and a “my” culture. In other words, in which the preaching deals with self-actualization. Many have often fed into the cultural idolatry of this world to attract people into the church – something which highly displeases God (See: Ezekiel 44:10, 12). Many use God and or their own ailments to suit their own needs.

Suggested Sabbath Day Service

Some World News Concerning Biblical Prophecy

We are witnessing even greater pressure against anyone who speaks relative truth. For there is only one source of absolute truth – God, Creator of the heavens and of the earth! In reality, 2+2 does not always equal 4! My father taught me this when I was fourteen with his slide rule! However, as usual, government officials are continuing to be allowed to lie – as a report from the United Kingdom points out. (See: ZeroHedge‘UK’s “Online Safety Act” Officially Grants MSM Permission To Publish Lies’). The United States of America has her own problems with this as well! (See: ZeroHedge‘Homeland Security Cited Inaccurate Allegation To Censor New York Times Journalist’).

We are continuing to witness even greater steps toward complete totalitarianism. These so-called “safeguards” to limit “knowingly false information with the intent to cause harm” IS AN OUTRIGHT JOKE! Because these “Fact Checkers” tend to think that if they do not agree with something – then, somehow, the whole world shouldn’t! Are we all like the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz!? The “brainless” Scarecrow joins Dorothy in the hope that The Wizard will give him a brain!

Last year, Michael Snyder of the End Of The American Dream posted –

Our world is becoming a creepier place with each passing day. … And a new tool that was just introduced by the UN will make it much easier for them to control what we write on the Internet…

The iVerify System Is Here

The UN’s new fact-checking system is going to be a game changer, but so far the mainstream media is being really quiet about it.

Perhaps that is because they don’t want millions of us to object to this sort of tyranny.
Well, ever-increasing censorship should not be of any surprise! Even many in Jerusalem, Israel understand that TRUTH will become lacking before the return of our living Savior – the Son of God – our Lord Jesus Christ! Notice –
Internet Censorship: Pre-Messiah Evil Described by Isaiah

Isaiah: Lack of Truth in End-of-Days

The Talmud (97a) goes into great detail describing the conditions in the days preceding the final redemption. One condition is based on a prophecy written in the Book of Isaiah.
[Translated from my Torah] – “defiance and denial of HASHEM and withdrawal from after our God, speaking of oppression and rebellion, conceiving and contemplating words of falsehood from the heart. 14) Thus justice has been in the street, and integrity cannot enter. 15) Truth became lacking and refraining from evil seemed foolish. HASHEM saw all this and it was evil in His eyes that there is no justice.” – Isaiah 59:13-15.
Minister Michael C. Garrett –
“This Old Testament prophecy – indeed talking about TODAY’S SOCIETY. I do believe.

“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy [or deaf], That it cannot hear. 2) But your iniquities [your sins] have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear you. 3) For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, …” – and so many religious leaders have that one directly placed upon their head. “ … Your tongue has muttered perversity.”

Verse 4 – “No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth. …” – O they’ll follow church tradition, and they’ll follow their leader – and that can be applied to so many different groups. And you are sort-of made to believe that only he knows what he’s talking about – and you must follow him explicitly, without doubt. And yet, the Bible says, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” So, why are you looking to a man!? Why are you looking to a so-called leader!? And, the Catholics do it, the Mormons (the Latter Day Saints) do it, the Baptists do it, the Methodists do it. Everywhere you look in the world of religion. They get hung up on, “Well, our leader says.” Well, your leader ought to be Jesus Christ! And your rulebook should be the Word of God! – properly understood, properly taught. Not deceitfully used.

“ … They trust in empty words (vanity) and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.”

If you would turn to verse 13 – “In transgressing and lying against the LORD, And departing from our God, Speaking oppression and revolt, Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. 14) Justice [judgment] is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity [or justice] cannot enter. 15) So truth fails, …”

And, I am unable to go through all the Scriptures, but there is one parable. Matthew 13. And, I hope that nothing more – from this part five alone – you remember the parable in Matthew 13. Verse 44 – “’Again, the kingdom [from] heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid [he hides this treasure]; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.’” What is He talking about there!? The treasure - you should be willing to sell all that you have - that you can buy that field where the treasure is hid – is the TRUTH OF GOD!”

(Garrett, M.C. The End-Time Prophets, 2023, pgs. 58-59).
So, like we’ve been teaching – the truth that will be lacking as we get closer to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ will be the TRUTH OF GOD!
“’ Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But OF HEARING THE WORDS OF THE LORD.’” – Amos 8:11.
Even though this Rabbi Sheila and this Rabbi Yosef Berger do not recognize our Lord Jesus of Nazareth as the true Messiah, they certainly understand to a degree that TRUTH will become lacking before the return of our living Savior! Again, one does not turn to Judaism to learn about our Lord Jesus Christ and all things that He has commanded us.

We are told by the LORD God – “Brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him [in the clouds of the atmosphere] … 7) For the mystery of lawlessness [of sin] is already at work; …” – recall the apostle Paul had WARNED that even then in AD 51-52 many were turning to ‘a different gospel, which is not another’ – cf. Galatians 1:6-9.

“ … only he who now [letteth] will do so …” – meaning, i.e., the continuance of the ‘mystery of lawlessness’ - of sin - will only be “until he is taken out of the way.”

Verse 9 – “The coming of the lawless one [this end-time man of sin] is according to the working of Satan, …” – recall Revelation 13:2 “ … The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” “ … with power, signs, and lying wonders, 10) and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” - because this blessed TRUTH will not be heard around the world!

Verse 11 – “And for this reason [because ‘they did not receive the love of truth’] God will send strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12) that they all may be condemned who do not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

Sadly, CATHOLIC EUROPE is moving faster than ever toward complete totalitarianism in regards to what is relative truth – consistency with several biblical two-fold prophecies –

Cf. – “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke like a dragon [or rather, he speaks for the 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 [this beast with two horns like a lamb, yet speaking for the dragon] performs great signs, so that he even makes fire [or rather lightning] come down from heaven [the atmosphere] 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, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image [a religious spokesperson] to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

15) He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast [the Roman Catholic Church will become the most powerful voice for this seventh revival of the “Holy” Roman Empire!], that the image of the beast should both speak [such as a Urbi et Orbi] and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.” – does anyone recall the Inquisitions!

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.”

This MARK is the Crucifixthe corpus, along with any of its manifestations - hence the cross.

17) And that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark [a person who willingly accepts the cross as the official symbol of Christianity] or the name of the beast [the revitalized “Holy” Roman Empire], or the number of his name [a recognized citizen of Rome].” – Revelation 13:11-17.

Concluding Comments

Here are some Scriptures of praise, joy, and thanksgiving to Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ:

“When I remember these things, I pour out my soul [my life] within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With the multitude that kept a pilgrim feast” – Psalm 42:14.

“For the LORD will comfort Zion [New Jerusalem], He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody” – Isaiah 51:3.

“The voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say:

‘Praise the LORD of hosts,
For the LORD is good,
For His mercy endures forever’

And of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause the captives of the land to return as at the first,’ says the LORD” – Jeremiah 33:11.

“For what thanks can we render to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sake before our God, 10) night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face and perfect what is lacking in your faith?” – 1 Thessalonians 3:9-10.

“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, 13) although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief” – 1 Timothy 1:12-13.

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” – Colossians 3:17.

Let us, Brethren and Friends, be thankful for our calling! We all should be!

With love and gratitude, in Jesus' Name,

Over 2 million Suspected TERRORISTS Illegal in the United States of America?

Reports are going around claiming that over 2,000,000 TERRORISTS have illegally entered the United States of America's southern border – because it is WIDE OPEN! Here are a couple of reports:

One from The Center Square (formerly – a conservative online news organization.
(The Center Square) – Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says the biggest problem with illegal border crossers is they’re coming “across the border specifically to commit crime.”

“They're coming across the border hand over fist as a result of very organized systems and processes [created] by the criminal cartels out of Mexico. They're bringing with them methamphetamine. They're bringing with them fentanyl,” the Florida sheriff said in a discussion with Citizens Defending Freedom founder Steve Maxwell.

“We're not just dealing with migrants coming here to better themselves,” he added. “That's not the issue that's creating the biggest problem. The biggest problem is that these folks are coming across the border … from all kinds of terrorist nations. … Cartels are flooding the U.S. with drugs and killing thousands of people a year and we don't even know yet the end game of the terrorists who are sneaking across. That's still oblivious to us.

Retired FBI counterintelligence officials warned Congress last month that a terrorist attack was likely imminent and preventable. They said, “It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi-division army of young single adult males from hostile nations and regions whose background, intent, or allegiance is completely unknown. They include individuals encountered by border officials and then possibly released into the country, along with the shockingly high estimate of 'getaways,' meaning those who have entered and evaded apprehension.”

An estimated two million getaways illegally entered since January 2021, The Center Square has reported.

Here’s another report from WorldNetDaily – a very far-right conservative news source. Indeed, it can be very “reliable” to most conservatives.
Sheriff’s Source: 2 million terrorists have entered U.S. - Coming through Biden's open border

There's a new report that charges there might be two million terrorists who have gained access to the United States, and are inside the borders now, as a result of Joe Biden's open borders policies for the nation's security.

That some have entered is without doubt, as border security teams have confirmed they've stopped even those on terror watch lists at the border, and those experts really have no way of monitoring those they miss. …

That information explains two million suspected terrorists may have crossed the border already into the U.S. …

Border experts have confirmed that many of those entering the U.S. across Biden's open border are men, of military age, and often traveling without family.

Now, I liken reading these two news sources as one would read the Star (magazine) or the National Enquirer. Let us take it with a grain of salt.

However… the latter report stated, “That some have entered is without doubt.” Indeed! Two Million!? While the true number of illegal immigrants that desire to harm U.S. legal citizens is actually unknown, as far as illegal aliens and the end-time descendants of the house of Israel – God’s living word WARNS –
“’ The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44) He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

45) MOREOVER all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, BECAUSE YOU DID NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.

46) And they [these curses] shall be upon you FOR A SIGN and A WONDER, and on your descendants forever. 47) Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48) therefore you shall serve YOUR ENEMIES, whom the LORD will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck UNTIL HE HAS DESTROYED YOU.

49) The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50) a nation of fierce countenance, WHICH DOES NOT RESPECT THE ELDERLY NOR SHOW FAVOR TO THE YOUNG.

51) And they [these illegal aliens] shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you” – Deuteronomy 28:43-51.
When our U.S. President Donald Trump placed a ban on illegal immigrants from many Muslim nations back in 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed them into his nation with open arms! Sadly, CANADA is expected to suffer the same fate as the USA within biblical prophecy – cf. Daniel 11:39 –
“Thus he [a reorganized United States of Europe; a revised and resurrected “Holy” Roman Empire] shall act against the STRONGEST FORTRESSES with a foreign god [Certainly, in this end time, the ‘strongest fortresses’ are the United States of America and her Anglo-descended allies], which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory [a ‘foreign god’ – speaking of superior military weaponry]; and he shall cause them to rule over many, AND DIVIDE THE LAND FOR GAIN.”
It is extremely dangerous to have radical Muslims inside Western “Christian” nations! - or for that matter, a Jewish nation!

Notice this important two-fold prophecy from the prophet Isaiah –
“The Lord sent a word against Jacob, And it has fallen on Israel. …”
Again, in this two-fold prophecy, speaking concerning the end-time descendants of the house of Israel and the house of Judah respectively.
“ 9) All the people will know─ Ephraim [modern-day United Kingdom and her Commonwealth Nations] and the inhabitants of Samaria─ [modern-day United States of America and her territories; a great number of Scriptures indicate that Manasseh being referred to as Samaria] …

11) Therefore the LORD shall set up The adversaries of Rezin against him, And spur his enemies on, 12) The Syrians before and the Philistines [Palestinians] behind; And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth.” – Isaiah 9:8-9, 11-12.

“Make a chain, For the land is filled with crimes of blood, And the city is full of violence. 24) Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles, And they will possess their houses; I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease, And their holy places [this world’s churches, synagogues, and mosques] shall be defiled. 25) Destruction comes; They will seek peace, but there shall be none” – Ezekiel 7:23-25.
Now, as far as the Syrian connection from the prophet Isaiah, does this mean that all or most of the Syrian refugees are terrorists!? Of course not. Yet, as we posted back in February 2021, there has been an egregious amount of ‘pestilences’ and TERRORISM since September 1, 2001!

The United States of America and our British brethren should expect even more deadly terrorist attacks from Syrians – and others! All around the world, there has been a grave uptick in massive earthquakes as well as volcanic activity.

Indeed, our Lord Jesus Christ WARNED for this end-time, “’ there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows’” – Mark 13:8.

TODAY─ in this end-time, nearly every Western “Christian” nation has radical Muslims inside their borders! And, we are not anti-Muslim, we are anti-terrorist!! And there is a growing of Islamic extremism throughout the world! As the Muslim population increases in the United States, so too will the number of Islamic terror attacks.

Consider some biblical prophecies related to TERRORISM:
“’ But IF you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15) and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16) I also will do this to you: I will even appoint TERROR over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17) I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. THOSE WHO HATE YOU shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you’” – Leviticus 26:16-17.

“’ The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be TERROR within For the young man and virgin, The nursing child with the man of gray hairs’” – Deuteronomy 32:25.
So, what is Islam’s role!? A person from lands that are currently dominated by Islam is prophesied to be involved with deals with a final European ‘king of the North’ – Daniel 11:27; along with Psalm 83:3-8.

God’s living Word specifically WARNS of grave problems from the Arabic peoples in this end-time (which nearly all are Muslim).

Friends, bringing in Muslim immigrants into North America will very likely result in some of them fulfilling terroristic prophecies (be sure to read ‘How Democrats are using multiculturalism and immigration to destroy America’).

Without national repentance, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and even Bermuda are doomed. Notice that lack of repentance is indeed listed as a reason that the ‘king of Assyria’ – the final ‘king of the North’ – will become Ephraim’s king:

“’ I taught Ephraim to walk, … 5) But the Assyrian shall be his king, Because they refused to repent. 6) And the sword shall slash in his cities, Devour his districts, And consume them, Because of their own counsels. 7) My people are bent on backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, None at all exalt Him’” – Hosea 11:3, 5-7. □

Translations: Kiswahili


Imani yako ni ya kibiblia? ... na unaweza kuthibitisha hilo? na Michael C. Garrett.

Sasa, naipenda nchi yangu. Na ninajua kwamba nyote mnafanya hivyo. Tunapenda uhuru ambao umehakikishiwa kwetu kutoka kwenye Katiba na Muswada wa Sheria ya Haki. Na nadhani sote tunashikilia kwamba uhuru wa dini labda ndio tunaoshikilia sana. Na ninashukuru kwamba watu wote hapa Marekani wana haki ya kuabudu - au kutoabudu - kulingana na dhamiri yao. Na kamwe sitaki haki hiyo kwa namna yoyote ile iondolewe kwao. Ikiwa ni pamoja na wewe na mimi. Na, sina animus, sina uadui, au uhasama, au chuki, au kutopenda mtu yeyote anayeshikilia imani tofauti ya kidini. Na ninasema hivyo kwa sababu nadhani sote tunahitaji kutafakari hilo. Ninajua nyuma katika siku za Ulimwenguni pote, wakati watu walipata shida sana, na ilikuwa karibu, unajua, wangeendesha gari kando ya barabara na kwenda, "Naam, angalia kanisa hilo la BAPTIST!"


Je, Mungu Ni UTATU? na Michael C. Garrett

Je, Mungu ni Utatu au ni familia? Je, Roho Mtakatifu ni kiumbe au nguvu ya uumbaji ya Uungu? Maswali haya kuhusu asili ya Mungu yanajibiwa katika kijitabu hiki.

Ukweli Kuhusu Utatu Ulioclezwa

Ikiwa ungerejea 2 Wakorintho 3. Hii ni kauli yenye nguvu, na makanisa na watu wa kidini wa ulimwengu huu wanaonekana kutoijua! Imo pale kwenye Biblia yao! Na ninathubutu kusema - watu wengi kutoka kwa mapokeo ya Kanisa la Ulimwenguni Pote la Mungu hawalijui pia. Walakini, iko hapo kwa ajili yako!

"Dhambi Isiyosameheka" Ni Nini? na Michael C. Garrett

‘msimzimishe Roho wa Mungu’

Sasa, napenda kuuliza swali kwa nyote kutafakari - kufikiria, wazo. Ni nini mbaya zaidi - mbaya zaidi - kitu cha kutisha zaidi na cha kutisha ambacho mwanadamu anaweza kufanya!? Sasa, hili ni swali kubwa.

Jambo, wazo, hatua - ambayo ni kali sana ambayo hakuna kurudi na hakuna msamaha. Milele. Msamaha hauwezi kupatikana kamwe.

Sasa, huenda watu fulani wakasema, ‘Vema, uuaji! Huwezi kusamehewa kwa mauaji! Hiyo ni zaidi ya rangi!’ Wengine wanaweza kusema, ‘Vema, uzinzi, au aina fulani ya dhambi ya ngono!’ Watu wengine wanaweza kusema, ‘Vema, ulevi, kucheza karata, bwawa, au kucheza dansi.’ Na, unasikia tofauti. Mambo na dini mbalimbali huamini mambo tofauti.

Kuthibitisha Ukweli! na Michael C. Garrett

Nadhani wengi wenu mnasoma hii wamekuwa na uzoefu wa kuwa na rafiki, mwanafamilia, jamaa, jirani, mfanyakazi mwenza, na katika wakati wa mazungumzo labda mazungumzo ya dini huja.

Na baada ya muda mfupi wanahisi kwamba kuna jambo tofauti kidogo kuhusu dini yako au labda wewe, na wanauliza maswali machache zaidi, na kisha bila kuepukika wanauliza swali – “Vema, unaamini nini!?” Na wakati mwingine unajihisi jasiri vya kutosha kupita kwenye mlango huo na wakati mwingine watu wanaukwepa. Lakini ni swali zuri. Je, makanisa ya ulimwengu yanaamini na kufundisha nini ambacho ni tofauti sana na kile tunachoamini na kufundisha!? Na nilifikiri itakuwa jambo la kuvutia kupitia baadhi ya mawazo haya.

Bwana na Mwokozi wetu Yesu Kristo alisema, “‘Lakini afadhali enendeni kwa kondoo waliopotea wa nyumba ya Israeli.’” Je!

Je, kikundi kidogo na kinachoonekana kuwa duni bado kingekuwa kinafundisha na kuzingatia mambo yote ambayo Yesu alifundisha na kuamuru?

Je, ungekuwa tayari “kushindana kwa bidii kwa ajili ya imani iliyotolewa mara moja tu kwa watakatifu wa Mungu”!?

Je, ni imani zipi za asili za Kanisa la awali la kitume la Mungu lililoanzishwa na Yesu Kristo ambalo Kanisa la Yesu Kristo Mtandaoni linashikilia?

Je, Mungu Anasikiliza?

Je, Mungu Mweza-Yote husikia sala zetu? 

Na Leonard V. Johnson

Lo, ningedhani kwamba sala - yenyewe - ni kitendo kinachofanywa na kila dini juu ya uso wa dunia hii. Labda maombi yanafanywa sasa hivi kwa kila aina ya miungu huko nje. Binamu wa mke wangu anaonekana kuwa na uhusiano na Buddha – ambaye hawezi kumsaidia hata kidogo. Ubuddha ni dini ambayo haijumuishi imani katika Muumba au Mtu yeyote wa milele wa kimungu.

Je, Unaelewa Ezekieli 37?

Haya hapa ni machache ya kile Waziri Michael C. Garrett anafundisha kuhusu hili:

Ezekieli 37 – sura ambayo ni ngumu sana kwa watu wa kawaida kuelewa – kwamba wanachoweza kufanya ni kutengeneza wimbo kutoka kwayo. Unakumbuka wimbo “Dem Bones Dem Bones Dem Dry Bones”? Naam, ni MUHIMU zaidi kuliko kuwa wimbo tu! Ni ukweli wa Mungu – ni siku zijazo! Ninapenda kifungu hiki.

“Mkono wa BWANA ukanijia, akanitoa nje katika roho ya BWANA, akaniweka chini katikati ya bonde; nayo ilikuwa imejaa mifupa. 2) Kisha akanipitisha karibu nao pande zote, na tazama, walikuwa wengi sana katika bonde lililo wazi; na kweli zilikuwa kavu sana. 3) Naye akaniambia, ...” – na nina hakika umeona hili hapo awali, lakini watu, hii ni FANTASTIC – mchakato huu wa mawazo hapa.


‘Matunda ya Kwanza – kwa Mungu’

na Leonard V. Johnson

Sasa, tofauti na sikukuu nyingine za Bwana, Siku ya Pentekoste inaadhimishwa – ingawa kwa matoleo mengi tofauti – na makanisa mengi ya ulimwengu huu. Wote na Mama Kanisa la ulimwengu wote na binti zake. Kwa kweli, Siku ya Pentekoste ndiyo siku ileile ambayo ‘Msaidizi,’ ‘Roho wa kweli,’ ‘Roho Mtakatifu’ aliwashukia wanafunzi wakiwa ‘ndimi zilizogawanyika, kama za moto.’— Matendo 2:1-4.


'Hakuna mtu aliyepaa – mbinguni'

Je, tuna uhakikisho gani kwamba wapendwa wetu walioaga wako mbinguni? Umeamini kwa MAMLAKA GANI kwamba utaenda mbinguni, ikiwa umeokoka?

na COJCOM Imetafsiriwa na Erick Odhiambo

Salamu kwa marafiki katika Indonesia, Uingereza, Ireland, Philippines, na kote Marekani. Sasa, simaanishi kukukosea - lakini nitaenda kinyume na mafundisho ya kiinjilisti ya ulimwengu huu.

Wakati mimi scroll chini habari yangu kulisha kwenye Facebook, ni mara nyingi replete na watu posting na kuzungumza juu ya mpendwa wao wafu Wale. "Najua uko hapa nasi," wengi waliandika. Je, wanatuona hapa!? Je, tunaweza kuwaona tena!?


Tangu mwanzo... Mpango Mkuu wa Mungu

na Leonard V. Johnson

“ Mungu akasema, Na tumfanye mtu k wa mfano wetu, kwa sura yetu; ...” ─ Mwanzo 1:26.

Marafiki je Mungu alijua kuwa tutafanya dhambi!? Je, Mungu alitazama chini katika siku zijazo na kujua kwamba sisi - wewe na mimi - katika karne hii ya 21 tungetenda dhambi!?

Tunapoanza hadithi katika Biblia katika bustani ya Edeni - neno hai la Mungu - tunajua kwamba Mungu anawaambia wazazi wetu wa kwanza kwamba adhabu yao ya kutotii itakuwa mbaya sana - kwamba itakuwa kifo.

Personal From... Politically Affiliated?

Politically Affiliated?

God’s true Church should not be politically affiliated. It is not “left-wing.” And, it is not “right-wing.” The LORD God’s true ministers should not be using their platform to stand upon a soap box in front of the congregations and spout off any political ideologies.

Last night I watched American conservative political commentator Tucker Carlson. The AmericaFest 2023 Speech. It was a good speech. One that I feel every American needs to watch. The following is what caught my attention – for he is very much aware that there is an evil that is permeating into the very heart of our Western societies, even though he never named this evil by name –
“What is that!? … it’s evil. … And I think people misunderstand evil. They assume that evil is something that you inflict on other people. “I’m doing an evil thing to you because I am evil.” And what they miss, that isn’t exactly how it works. Evil preexisted us. Evil has been around since the beginning of time. Certainly, it’s been here for a quarter of our history – we know that. And it’s not something that people do to one another, it’s something that acts through people.

People become conduits for evil. And in the process of doing that, what happens to them!? Anyone?

They are destroyed. The people doing the evil do not win in the end. They are destroyed by the evil that is flowing through them.”
At the end of the speech was a Questions & Answers segment. A young man stands in the crowd and asks him, “Would you fully support a Theocratical structure based on the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?” And his answer is most intriguing! –
“Of course, I have no idea what that means. So, I don’t know. I would say that … I left the church that I was going to over this question. Christianity has to stand distinct from politics. Because when Christianity mingles with politics, Christianity dies. And I’ve seen it. And watching these churches – many of which I support, because (spoiler alert) I’m a Christian – start pushing the Vax at the demand of the CDC and others, and the propaganda campaigns that individual churches (conservative local churches) inflicted upon the parishioners. Telling them that Jesus would want them to take this Vax. Which is not tested. … I was so offended, that I left. And, I’m not attacking those churches, and I’m sure they are nice people and are sincere believers. But, the point is: When you mingle with people who are corrupt – unless you overwhelm them with the truth – and if you are a little bit impressed by their earthly power (even a little bit impressed) you will be corrupted. And I’ve seen that happen! … And if you constantly think – well, will I offend this or that person in power!? And if you think, even for a second, about what you witness – who will be offended by it – you’re way off track! You’re serving the wrong leader. And so I’m very concerned with any intersection.

And I will say, having traveled a lot, that the death of Christianity in Europe – which is one of the biggest things to ever happen – which is a Christian continent. And that’s only true in Eastern Europe now. In Western Europe it is totally atheist – full pagan. That happened in part because the Church [here he was speaking of the Catholic Church] was an organ of the State. And people really came to hate the Church as a result of that. …

And the last thing I’ll say – I do think that countries, like people, suffer for consequences of immorality. And if your country celebrates it – and if it elevates abortion as a positive good as a means of freedom – it’s just child sacrifice. That’s exactly what that is. And mutilating children, discarding children, promoting prostitution – selling people's bodies – what!? I think you suffer consequences! I think there is a lot of evidence that you do. And again, I’m not a Theologian – don’t ask me about the end times, I have no idea. But, that is a very dangerous thing to do – and we are doing it!

And so, is Theocracy the answer!?

I don’t know what that means, but I don’t want the government anywhere near my church – and I mean it.”
Much of what he said in this speech resonates with me. I guess, in a way, I was thrown out of the Church of God for this very type of question. The Armstrongs taught – as they continue to teach – that God put one man in control, Moses. And, that God has only dealt with one man at a time through the centuries. I certainly questioned their teaching on their doctrine.

True Christianity Stands Above Politics

Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us, ’ And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!’ – Mark 13:37. Indeed, also to watch world events in light of biblical prophecy!

While God’s living truth does not directly involve itself in the politics of this world, however, we as servants of our Lord Jesus Christ, must address at times the burning, life-and-death issues and decisions of this world’s politicians in this present evil age.

Should a true Christian vote? THERE are a lot of arguments involving this question. Both sides of the argument are good ones. Either may be an acceptable point of view. Yet, candidates or proposals that knowingly violate the Law of God regarding God’s Way of life, family, marriage, or faith should NEVER BE SUPPORTED! – cf. Proverbs 14:34. So, by true Christians voting for the leader who best represents the kingdom of God and the Way of Jesus Christ, it shows the LORD God how we stand in our views. Deuteronomy 1:13, NEB. See also Exodus 18:21-22; Numbers 11:16-17.

Although our views might occasionally coincide with conservatives on a specific issue, our views are not fully derived from that group. True Christians derive their views from the eternal LORD God!

The reason!?

Because God’s word is truth! – John 17:17.

And, we are told by the LORD God – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will direct your paths” – Proverbs 3:5-6.

True Christians examine the causes and effects bearing issues as the LORD God looks at them, based upon the revealed truths of the living word of God!

Sadly, humanity as a whole has rejected revealed knowledge from the LORD God – “Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit” – 1 Thessalonians 4:8.

True Christians should not only point out and address what is happening globally – with respect to biblical prophecy – but proclaim it from the perspective of God’s living word. We endeavor to show unto the world how Almighty God, as the LORD God looks down upon this present evil age – sees this world’s kingdoms and societies of mankind. We look at the source of this world’s grave troubles and its Solution – the living JESUS CHRIST!

Sadly, there are churches that believe and teach that the Bible is political. God’s living word is not political. Yet, the very heart and core of its message concerns government – the government of the LORD God! The kingdom of God!

Very few of our peoples understand that the gospel message (the “good news”) of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was (and is) a glorious message about government! The LORD God is deeply interested in government. Our Lord Jesus Christ has announced the establishment of the LORD God’s government upon this Earth! His glorious message from God the Father was (and is) the wonderful, good news Message of God’s Master Plan of salvation for all mankind through the life, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ – “the Christ, the Son of the living God” – cf. Matt. 16:16; Mark 8:29; Luke 9:20.

The New Testament calls this Message the Gospel of grace. The Gospel of grace is the good news that Jesus Christ is the Savior – the Messiah – of the world and that through His blood all who repent and believe on Him may have their sins forgiven and may enter into the family of God. The Gospel is also a Message about the soon-coming kingdom of God on E A R T H.

It is the glorious, good news that when Jesus Christ returns to the earth, He will set up His kingdom – His government. He will rule all nations as King of kings and Lord of lords. The saints who are given eternal life at the first resurrection – who are changed from mortal to immortal – will be co-heirs with Christ and will be given authority to rule His kingdom as kings and priests alongside Jesus Christ – Revelation 1:6; 5:10. Through preaching the Gospel, God is preparing saints for His kingdom by calling those whom He chooses to repentance and conversion. And yes, this government will be a type of theocracy – with our Lord Jesus Christ as ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’!

Understand: Voting was not even an option within the Roman Empire for non-Roman citizens. However, God’s living word does address other aspects related to supporting this world’s government – such as paying taxes to Julius Caesar Augustus (23 September 63 BC – 19 August AD 14). Our Lord Jesus Christ affirmed we must pay our taxes, but also that our focus extends far beyond any of this world’s governments – Matthew 6:33.

In this present evil age, cut off from the LORD God, mankind does not know the Way to lasting peace. This world and its politicians are doing what is right in their own eyes, and in doing so they have brought this world and its kingdoms all the evils that are besetting all mankind. For all of nearly 6,000 years of human history, mankind has demonstrated that “the Way of peace they have not known, And there is no justice [judgment] in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths; Whoever takes that way SHALL NOT KNOW PEACE” – Isaiah 59:8.


Because this is not the LORD God’s world! Our Lord Jesus says, ’ My kingdom is not of this world. …’ – John 18:36. This is Satan the Devil’s world! “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, …” – 2 Corinthians 4:3, 4. Satan has his own kingdom upon this earth! – cf. Matthew 12:26. He has deceived the whole world! – Revelation 12:9. Satan the Devil is the true author of this world’s philosophies and its imperfect systems of government – all based upon improper competition, strife, greed, lust, vanity, jealousy, envy, selfish ambitions, heresies, rivalries, exploitations, aggression, and the like!

Our Lord Jesus distinctly says that we are NOT TO BE OF THE WORLD! ’ If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because YOU ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.’ – John 15:19. Our LORD God says, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness. And what accord has Christ with Belial? …” – 2 Corinthians 6:14, 15. For we are told, “’ He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.’” – Revelation 22:11. It is only God the Father that calls someone OUT OF THIS WORLD! – John 6:44.

True Christians are called to COME OUT FROM AND SEPERATE OURSELVES FROM “her.”– THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AND HER DAUGHTER CHURCHES! – “’ MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her [spiritual] fornication, the kings of the earth have committed [spiritual] fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” – Revelation 17:5; 18:3, 4.

“Therefore ‘Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.’ – 2 Corinthians 6:17.

Now, this does not mean to make fun of, or bash over the head this world’s political leaders! – We are told as Christians –

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities, For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist ARE APPOINTED BY GOD. 2) Therefore whoever resists [or mocks] the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist [or even mocks] will bring judgment on themselves. … 7) Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.” – Romans 13:1-2, 7.

Our Lord Jesus says concerning our parents (which certainly can be attributed to the honor and respect of authority – as in governmental leaders), ’ But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God’ 6) then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.’ – Matthew 15:5-6.

The Apostle Paul writes – under divine inspiration – “Therefore I exhort FIRST OF ALL that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and GIVING OF THANKS be made for all men, 2) for kings [presidents, prime ministers, heads of state, etc.] and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-3.

But, posting on your social media short videos mocking your president, prime minister, or heads of state is certainly against what is acceptable in the sight of our God – Jesus Christ!

However, we are also told that when push comes to shove, we are to “obey God rather than men” – Acts 5:29.

We are To Be Ambassadors For Christ Jesus!

Everything we post or say on our social media sites reflects the fruits of our spirit. You are what you post! Our Lord Jesus tells us that we will know our true brethren by the fruits of their spirit. Their spirit reflects love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

And, we will also know who does not truly belong to our living Savior – by the fruits of their spirit, their character, their personality – ’ Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but INWARDLY they are ravenous wolves. 16) You will know them by their fruits. …’ – Matthew 7:15-20.

Yes, true Christians live physically in this present evil age, but we are not of it! – John 17:15. For God’s living word teaches us that true Christians are actually now residents of another kingdom, which comes from heaven (2 Corinthians 5:1) The LORD God’s begotten children are foreigners on this earth for a brief time.

“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the life.” – 1 Peter 2:11. True Christians are now citizens of the kingdom of God which is reserved in the third heaven until God’s holy kingdom is established upon this earth!

“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 3:20.

This does not, however, mean that we are “sovereign citizens.” 

A true Christian is an ambassador for Christ and His soon-coming kingdom! – “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading THROUGH us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” – 2 Corinthians 5:20.

Our God – the living Jesus Christ – lives on this earth through and in His followers as representatives of Jesus Christ, yet obeying human governmental authorities. And, where there is conflict against the commandments, statutes, ordinances, and judgments of the LORD God, we must obey the LORD God, and submit to the penalties of man’s law – again, cf. Acts 5:29. □
