Compelled to Teach Reality and Nearness of Hell!

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
December 12, 2017

There is something I must confess: I am a Watchman—no I am not a member of any off-shoot semi-Christian organization. In God’s Word, that term means a person to whom God assigns certain duties. When one becomes a Christian, he or she not only becomes a son or daughter of God, that person also becomes a servant for God. Too many Christians today just want to be God’s children believing that as youngsters they can still “sneak” off and do what they want to do, even if it against His will and His Word. These ‘baby’ Christians would never want to be called servants, or worse to them, even less so “watchmen.”

In the Book of Revelation, Apostle John writes that God gave the Revelation to The LORD Jesus Christ so that He could show His servants “things which must shortly come to pass.” The LORD Jesus gave God’s message to His angel who in turn gave The Revelation “unto His servant John.” Known as Saint John, The Divine, Apostle John wrote five books of the New Testament, which is the number of books, exceeded only by those Apostle Paul wrote. Yet in The Revelation alone, John calls himself God’s servant some 14 times.

A watchman is a servant, one who is given certain areas to watch over and/or to warn people who may be straying from the path God ordained for them. For instance consider what God told His prophet Ezekiel: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

Several weeks ago, Our Father gave me an assignment to write in blogs and books about three things: Heaven, Hell and Earth. His orders came for several reasons: 1) Because some claiming to be Christians mistakenly assume they are going to Heaven, but if they don’t soon repent, they are going to Hell; 2) Because too many people—both saved and unsaved—do not know very much about Hell; and 3) Because in the next few years such horrific things—i.e. more and worse wars, earthquakes, floods, fires, diseases, etc.–will increasingly happen on Earth as the end of time on this planet—as we know it—is absolutely almost over.

Note that God told Ezekiel that if the prophet did not warn the wicked, that prophet would lose his own soul. Sorry folks, as much as my ‘natural self’ finds it unpleasant to write about such unpleasantness as Hell all the time, that ‘natural self’ must be crucified. It is not worth my going to that wretched dark and fire-filled place because I refuse to obey what God has commanded me to do. Yes, I am His child, and I have been so for over 50 years, but age is no excuse for not obeying His will. In fact, the more that one knows, the more obedience is required of that Christian. Note that the great prophet Ezekiel is warned that he either does what God commands or he too can slip into hell!

But you wish to reply the Bible says “God is Love,” surely He will not send His own beloved children to that endlessly horrible place. Look! We are living in the End Times! With some seven or eight billion people on earth who have never heard the Gospel or accepted Christ as Savior, Our Father must press those few of His children who still listen to Him into service. Another verse comes to mind: “For many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22: 14).” It could easily be translated: “For many are called, but few obey.” Apostle Peter stresses, “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” Once saved but unrepentant people–kings (i.e. Solomon), prophets (i.e. Jonah), apostles and preachers, (i.e. Judas and Demas)–are in Hell today because they refused to obey God’s Word and to follow His will.

And please don’t think you can avoid Hell’s judgment just because you go to church. Those unrepentant characters went to church as well. They simply thought they had the freedom and right to do and say what they wanted to say, and still avoid God’s judgment! Just going to church is not enough. Today, God needs Christian soldiers, servants and watchmen who He can depend upon to obey when He calls. He needs us to get closer to Him, and to be more willing than ever to serve Him in every way that we can.

Open your wholesale Christian Bible and consider one more verse: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting (Galatians 6: 7 – 8).” Hell is the constant painful corruption of the mind, spiritual body, and emotions, while Life Everlasting is living with and obeying God, His Son and His Holy Spirit while reaping and ‘owning’ untold enjoyment of worlds, planets, and all kinds of riches and blessings now and forever!

May Not Be Enough Time to Repent

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
November 3, 2017

Those believing they will have amble time to repent when the death door beckons, make dangerous mistakes that may have eternal consequences. Of the list of some 50 end-of-time disruptions in nature included in God’s Holy Word, dozens of these rather instantaneous calamities may not allow the minutes, hours or days necessary for a repentant prayer allowing one to return to God.

Also, those believing that they skate on the edge of God’s grace, may not be aware that they have crossed over the invisible line of secure salvation. Certainly people in Biblical history assumed they would have time to repent before death: 1) Such as Kings of Israel Saul, Solomon and numerous other leaders who haughtily thought their thrones guaranteed them rights to worship idols at lecherous parties if they went to the temple on Sabbath; 2) Arrogantly disobedient prophet Jonah who assumed even after being saved from death and hell that he could still claim the right to disagree with God; and 3) Church liars Ananias and Sapphira assumed that if they were caught there would always be time to admit their sins, feign repentance and half-way come back to God, but meeting death on the altar, they never had a chance for such repentance.

Those who claim to be backsliding Christians should remember that without being “in Christ,” that is living for Him and in obedience to His callings, living absolutely under the protection of The Most High God and His Son Jesus Christ, no one has the guarantee of everlasting life with Them at the time of death. In view of the recent earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and state-wide forest fires in this country and around the world, Christians must understand that the Bible speaks of great (i.e. massive) earthquakes (Revelation6: 12; 8: 5; 11: 13 – 19, 16: 18); instant sinkholes (Numbers 16: 1 – 33); lightening (Psalms 144: 5 – 6; Matthew 24: 27 – 28; Luke 17); Hail storms (Joshua 10: 8; Exodus 9: 18 – 10: 1), etc.

In coming weeks we shall write about these and many others types of instant deaths caused by the Fourth Apocalypse Horse in these last days carrying the formal name of Death in Revelation Chapter 6, but for now let us just consider one: Lightening! One of Wikileak’s Epidemiologies records: “One estimate is that 24,000 people are killed by lightning strikes around the world each year and about 240,000 are injured. Another estimate is that the annual global death toll is 6,000. According to the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) over the last 20 years, the United States averaged 51 annual lightning strike fatalities, placing it in the second position, just behind floods for deadly weather. In the US, between 9% and 10% of those struck die, for an average of 40 to 50 deaths per year . . .”

Beloved, it is not worth the risk. It is foolish to keep walking away from God because one is afraid to face Him. Better to face Him now, fall upon His mercy, and take whatever punishment He may give. Remember, the closer one gets to The Father, the belt cannot reach the backside as well. Remember, Hell, like Heaven, is Forever! Every Christian—especially those in leadership who believe that they have somehow “earned” the right to be saved—must now humble themselves before God and beg forgiveness for their own sins, as well as that of their families and their nation. In fact, in these last days, Christians should stay in close reading of their wholesale Christian Bibles, and always walk in a constant state of humble love and repentance!

How Much Do Christians Really Know About Hell?

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
October 10, 2017

As we look to these last days of all of mankind’s time on earth facing increasing persistence of natural and man-made disasters, as well as constant threats of nuclear and other wars that could wipe out whole nations (i.e. EMP strikes), it seems that Biblical knowledge among believers—along with individual Christian’s commitment to Christ and His Word—all grow weaker and weaker.

Often I ask Christians who have gone to churches for decades questions such as: Can you “Name ten Books of the New Testament written by Apostle Paul,” or “Name Five or Six of the Twelve Minor Prophets in the Old Testament,” or explain “Who is ‘most excellent Theophilus’?’’Or “What did Ezra and Nehemiah do for Israel”—most come up dreadfully short of answers.

This is discouraging to Bible teachers, most of whom do not minister in churches, because too many pastor/preachers insist that indeed they are the only teachers necessary. So let’s try an even harder question for blog-reading Bible students: “Can you Name and Define/Discuss the Five Compartments of Hell?” No? Well let’s give it a try.

Shall we start with one which proves God’s distain for disobedience? That is Tartarus, the division separated for those fallen angels who revolted with Satan, came to earth to have sex with women, and produce monster non-human giants to rule over mankind. Apostle Peter writes of them: “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;. . . The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished (2 Peter 2: 4 – 9).”

After His physical death on The Cross, The Lord Jesus visited this special division in Hell to further preach against disobedience: “By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient . . . (1 Peter 3: 19 – 20). Hmm, Does this mean that God can send people to hell for being disobedient? Apostle Jude says further,“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day (1: 6).” So are Jude and other Apostles saying that there will be another judgment, even after Hell?

A ‘good’ part of Hell, if there can be any such thing, is called Paradise. It is the place where Satan kept Old Testament saints under wrap until they could be fully redeemed by the shed blood of Christ. Remember what Christ said to the prisoner on the cross who cried out to be saved: “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise (Luke 23: 43).” So for the three days and three nights that His physical body was in the grave, The LORD’s soul and spirit was ministering in Hell. And when He came—Body, Soul and Spirit—out of the grave and out of Hell, The Great Redeemer brought all of the saints out of Hell and took them to Heaven with Him. Thus, Paradise in Hell under the earth is totally empty now!

Third, there is that compartment of Hell, the temporary prison, where ordinary everyday sinners go. It too is just called ‘Hell’. In the four Gospels recording parts of His earthly ministry, The LORD Jesus speaks often of this Hell: “And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire (Matthew 18: 9).”

He even warns that whole cities can be cast into Hell: “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day (Matthew 11: 23).” Then the Savior adds that no matter what happens in this life, believers must always respect and fear God, The Father: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10: 28).”

Then there is the Abyss or bottomless pit, which is reserved for all kinds of demons, ‘beasts, and fallen angels, but not for people. Apostle John describes them in The Book of Revelation this way: “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is (17: 8).”

This last one galls so much because television, etc., preachers and evangelists use it to warn about Hell. But actually no one is in this place yet. All in Hell, in the grave and on earth who are not “in Christ” on The Final Judgment Day will be sent to this “lake of fire” after The Great White Throne judgment when they must stand before God The Father and answer for their sins: “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night
forever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20: 10 – 15).”

We will write more about these issues later, but beloved, don’t you agree that it is time for God’s people—true born again Christians—to open their wholesale Christian Bibles and get into His Word for themselves, to obey His callings on their lives, to repent and fast and pray more? We don’t have much time left, and we must pull as many people out of the potential of eternal fire as we can!

Do Not Let Your Culture Define Your Christianity

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
September 11, 2017

In some American churches, families who attend regularly include several generations of members who have watched and heard not just sermons and hymns from pulpit and choir lofts, but the common particular words and deeds of deacons, singers, ushers and church members who carry on as they are the worse of sinners, living seven days a week as if they had never heard, or sometimes in their lives had believed, sacred words of Jesus. In fact, most of the time, they live and speak words of filth as if they are common unsaved sinners who had never heard God’s Word, or who may have experienced God’s salvation.

Sexual relationships with church members outside of marriage is and was common for such ‘church’ members, even the fathering of children in families other than their own is often ordinary practice, becoming repeated behavior down through the generations. Otherwise, well-known verses from the pulpit (i.e. John 3: 16), and flowing songs from choirs may have changed a bit. The choir lofts and pulpit chairs may be larger, and ‘sacred’ buildings newer, but in too many churches the above practices have not changed.

For one thing, most of the time, such church members have seldom heard the complete Gospel—including that of God’s judgment against sin and sinners which encompasses two-thirds of The Bible, His Holy Word of Sure Promises. For another thing, these types of sinful church members have no recognition that what they practice is nothing but centuries-old satanic paganism. In fact, some members of similar pretend churches may attend satanic worship services in woods and basements Friday or Saturday nights, and then go to church on Sundays, just to keep up appearances of being good—instead of very evil–people. Such profane pretence to honor God on Sunday (or Saturday) is nothing but the worship of Satan, whose chief representative in such a church is usually the pastor himself.

As Apostle Peter writes in wholesale Christian Bibles: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of (2 Peter 2: 1 – 2).”

Are you a true Christian who knows that some of the church members around you do such things—even including homosexual practices—but you stay, because you long for church and “Christian” fellowship? You need to get out! You must run away from such pretend Christianity! Do not stay in such a church because it seems to fit your culture or generations of your family’s church membership. Their behavior can rub off on you. Just as Lot and his family found before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah—these deceptive people can marry into your family and you may never know it until God reveals such evil.

Their practice mimics the way that Satan overturned “the world that then was (2 Peter 3: 6)” in the first judgment between Genesis 1: 1 – 2. Don’t understand? But do you want to find out? Good! Then get into your King James Bible (preferably a Dake Study Bible) and seek fellowship with Your Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ. Not one of those phony pretend Christians—or any other human being–can save you. Only God The Father, His Precious Son Jesus, and The Blessed Holy Spirit can do that! Learn to have fellowship with them!

Is America Asleep, Ignorant, or Just Surrendering?

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
May 30, 2017

        North Korea has more than proven it is capable of disrupting indefinitely computer dependent electrical grids in the United States, possibly with assistance from China’s nuclear-laden satellite systems, and also with endless funding from Iran’s recent billions in wealth provided by strangely patriotic ex-President and Secretary of State.  On the other hand, Alex Lockie of UK Business Insider, writes that “A US attack on North Korea would be catastrophic — but the US might still do it.” Now wouldn’t that stir up even more foreboding problems?

And while they are as yet not capable of shutting down American society in one fell-swoop, ISIS fighters currently imbedded in the United States can certainly attack major urban, transportation, entertainment, shopping and sports venues—all of which may have weak or inept security protection for vulnerable U.S. citizens. Meanwhile, as if they care more about pleasing their brand of politicians than seeking protections for American citizens, some federal judges refuse to allow stronger airport border protections to keep terrorists from suspected countries out of this country. These permitted weaknesses continue as the nation sees continuous types of ongoing destruction in Europe which has been infested by certain immigrants who show dedication to the utter destruction of their new homes.

So what is being done about these ‘clear and present dangers’ to the United States?  Nor much, or at least, not enough!  One may ask why?  Well, the answers are many:  1)  Just as Nero fiddled while Rome burned, too many Americans so deeply relish entertainment: sports, novels, movies, TV shows, etc. that they seem unaware of other realities; 2) As they also ignore dangers facing the nation, some politicians would rather viciously fight their opposing party, than to fight the nation’s true destroyers standing just off-shore; 3) But most dangerous is the absence of American Christians who no longer even schedule mid-week prayer meetings, because a) Too many “Christian” men are more devoted to sports, gambling and/or sexual ‘games’ than seeking God’s protection for their families and their nation; b) Too many “Christian” women are more concerned with fashion news, cooking shows, beauty trends, side-line ‘boy friends,’ Face-book gossip, on-line and on-TV sex, murder and horror shows—even those shows most attractive to their children; and c) Instead of Prayer and Worship services, most 21st Century U.S. pastors offer entertainment venues,not only from choirs, musicians and ‘devotional’ dancers, but also from their pulpits.

At this year’s beginning, several prophets said that 2017 would be a year of prosperity for American citizens.  The stock market certainly forecasts the same.  But other national and international events warn of wars—nuclear, EMP, computer thefts, terrorist attacks, etc.–against this nation. Certainly, natural phenomena—floods, fires, unimaginable vehicle accidents, gun fighters vs. law enforcement, eerie storms, etc. bode of God’s judgments upon U.S. shores.

Certainly, wholesale Christian Bibles sternly warn that in the midst of prosperity, blessed Judeo-Christian nations could blithely forget Almighty God, Who is the source of such material blessings:  “Beware that thou forget not The LORD Thy God, in not keeping His commandments, and His judgments, and His statues, which I command thee this day; Lest when thou hast eaten and art full,, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein . . . Then thine heart be lifted up and thou forget The LORD Thy God . . . And thou say in thine heart, “My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth . . . .

“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget The LORD Thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish (Deuteronomy 8: 10 – 20).”  America certainly indicates that she has already forgotten Who prospered her these past three centuries.  Unless her sinful memory is healed, and her Christian citizens thoroughly repent, indeed judgment can come in the midst of such weak, even deadly, prosperity!

A.W.O.L. Christians: Time to Report for Duty

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
February 6, 2017

gods-army        Serving in an Army takes training, hard work and discipline—often under harsh and dangerous circumstances.  Sure, there are ‘leave’ times–such as when a sailor gets to walk off his ship or submarine for shore leave–but these  ‘vacations’ are for very limited and specified times.  However, just as in any regular military service, or police forces, leaves and vacations can be cancelled.  Ephesians 6, Revelation 19, and many other Scriptures, point out that true Christians are in God’s Army.  Thus, God’s people must always be ready to stop being A.W.O.L.—Absent Without Leave–and report for duty.

This blog site is labeled ‘Worlds Collide.’ Those worlds are of both material and spiritual natures.  And certainly, they are in many ways unequal.  For instance, consider angels. Unlike people, they never need to sleep or rest. And they are always on duty. This identity is the same for God’s good angels and Satan’s evil angels.  While it is true that two thirds of these angelic hosts remained true to God, and that only one third of them revolted with Satan, these evil ones have their attendant demons—probably disembodied souls who served Satan during earth’s first destruction between Genesis 1: 1 and 1: 2—who are enslaved to serve them at all times.  God’s angels have no such helpers—unless, of course they would include those believers who are always in line with God’s will.

What’s the point? Too many born-again Christians—instead of being attuned to God’s Word and His Will—are A.W.O.L.  While the Wars between Good and Evil swirl around them, too often they lose the battle for themselves and for The LORD Jesus.  Moreover, Satan, his angels and demons could be stealing everything that these believers think they own.

God’s angels are particularly stirred up when His people start consistently and earnestly praying as often as possible. In the same way, those who serve Satan as their god stir up evil angels to do evil things to God’s people when they pray to him and his devils.  To prove their devotion to Satan, those who serve him often walk through fire with him.  They ‘worship’ him, either weekly or on special pagan holidays for special “moons” or other signs.  Often, they show devotion to Satan when they attend midnight services in basements several levels below ground, or during outdoor orgies in well-hidden woods close by dead water pools so they can wash away the blood of their animal and human sacrifices they have made.

To combat such foolishness, as He promised in His Holy Word, God has made special promises to true believers.  If we gods-promises-truewant to find out what these promises are, or how to bring them to pass, we must get off our A.W.O.L. keisters and get back into the war of resisting Satan—for instance—in the same way that the prophet Daniel did.  Believers who serve God and His Son Jesus stir up good angels when they fast, pray, confess their sins as well as the sins of others, and worship God with all their might.  You see, Daniel had read in The Holy Word that God had promised to free Judah (or the remaining part of Israel) from slavery after 70 years, and this was a promise that Daniel wanted to bring to pass!  Thus, he prayed:

“I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.  And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; (9: 1 – 5).

“We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day . . . .

“O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation (9: 18 – 21).

“And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision (9: 21 – 23).”

In the next chapter, the angel explained to Daniel that it took quite an angelic battle for that angel to get through to God:  “And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.

”Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia (10: 11 – 13).”

Don’t you see beloved? The devil and his hosts will do everything possible to stop you from fasting and praying.  But you must not give up!  The promises of God’s Word in Wholesale Christian Bibles belong to you.  In these last days, it is high time to cancel all A.W.O.Ls. and get to work full time to fulfill God’s mission! (Don’t forget to hear and see us on Worship Radio Detroit on the internet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.)  God Bless you now and forever!

Novels By Rex Stout Make Gifts For Lifelong Wisdom

posted by WiseBooks @ 15:02 PM
January 21, 2017

2-novels-by-rex-stoutI love to give the gift of a good novel. These kinds of gifts are ones that will give and give again. A gift of a good book can be life-changing and that is what I love about it. Finding a good book to give as a gift is always exciting to me. Since I am becoming a Christian, I have a lot of Christian friends and we love to discover Christian-themed books together.

When I want to give the gift of wisdom that will last a lifetime, I love to find a good book that I can give to a friend or a family member. Even though I have a lot of Christian friends, I also have a lot of friends who are non-Christian as well and they are people who are very important to me. I like to tell them about the Bible and about Christianity whenever I get a chance.

With novels by Rex Stout, I always have something good to read and something that I can get a friend or family member excited about as well. I have been reading these novels for a long time and they are always thrilling and educational reads. Giving the gift of one of these novels is always a good choice and one that will have lifelong benefits.

Make 2017 A Year of United Prayer Warriors

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
January 4, 2017

jfk        Men who exercise tentacles of their powers over multiple nations, elected leaders, and dictators, who think they control sufficient collective human, spiritual and financial forces to stand against, even destroy, those attempting to subvert their plans for world direction—tend to eliminate persons, groups or nations who dare to oppose them. The feeder of their greed is money, or in their cases, unspeakable wealth, control of trillions, not just billions, of currencies world-wide. And sitting atop of this cadre of evil is Satan and all his satanic hosts of fallen angels and demons.

In 2017, members of The Body of Christ in the United States must remain close—even closer than it has ever been before.  Historically when a nation’s prayer teams are not unified, all hell breaks loose.  Even now acute bitterness from the last election can weaken some prayer warriors who resent those election results.  Christians, especially praying Christians, must recognize that earnest prayer, asking God Almighty to protect leaders on all political levels is
crucial intercessory prayer behavior.

I was in the Air Force when John Kennedy was elected President of the United States.  Protestant chaplains on my particular base were furious at the thought of having a Catholic president, as they concluded that the Pope would soon rule this country.  Likewise, politicians opposing Kennedy, as well as outspoken arms dealers, were furious because Kennedy was against expanding the Vietnam War. In fact, he wanted to withdraw American troops from that poor nation. In such a hateful atmosphere, and with so little agreement between politically-minded prayer warriors, the President was assassinated.

Those years were already riddled with cultural divisions between those confessing to be God’s people.  The Rev. Martin Luther King had also been murdered some months before Kennedy.  Again, the nation’s prayer forces were at odds with some churches being either for or against racial integration in schools and colleges. Again, the spiritual forces of God’s people were divided. Before Martin was killed, Medgar Evers, Mississippi Civil Rights leader, was also gunned down.  Not long after the President’s death, his brother Senator Robert Kennedy, who was running to overthrow Kennedy’s successor, was also killed by an assassin’s bullet. Of course, the forces behind those killings were human earthly rulers and darkness linked with the forces of spiritual darkness.

During those years, Americans lived with a great sense of fear and foreboding.  Nonetheless, good people began to cross racial, political and denominational lines and came together to pray for the nation’s healing. During weekday prayer meetings, as well as Sunday morning services, people fell on their knees weeping, crying out for the nation’s vicious culture of divisive hatred to end, for national leaders to be protected, and for Satan’s vile seemingly endless disruption to be chased away from our shores.  It took some years of earnest prayer, but eventually God’s people won out.  While the nation walked away from Vietnam, bloodied and battered, eventually the it’s hurts of hatred and division were, for the most part, healed.

My point is that when those who are “in Christ” stop praying, or when they pray against one another because of cultural, or political, differences, horrible consequences befall the country.  Today, I sense that same dread and foreboding threatening to creep over the land.  Will it be forces from beyond our borders bringing such ubiquitous destruction, or will it be the same satanic energies of disruptive violent anger, Americans hating Americans, rising up to take political and cultural vengeance.

Whatever the source, the only answer remains to be prayer–Churches praying for national violence to stop, even

before it gets an even stronger foothold; Parents praying their children away from gangs and violence; Pastors, chaplains and Christians praying together for our politicians to be protected as they work together, crossing party and cultural lines, for the nation’s benefit.

As wholesale Christian Bibles insists: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5: 16).”  If earnest Christians do not begin such praying, it may well be that this time the nation will not survive these same old, yet ‘new-found’, battles against evil!  And the world’s satanic war mongers, pillars of the devil’s stolen wealth and murderous destruction, will keep their onslaught against our nation and civilization until at last they bring in their true ‘worship’ leaders: Satan and the anti-Christ!  It must be repeated: Christians please pray . . . pray in this New Year of 2017 as you have never prayed before.

An Anti-Christian Book is a Great One for Me to Read

2-reading-a-bookIt has always been interesting for me to read some different types of books that surround religion and especially Christianity on the whole. I am fascinated by the way that this religion has inspired many different types of individuals to write all kinds of books on the subject. It is exciting for me to be able to get a look at these authors based on what they write.

While many of the books that I read are ones that have the Christian religion featured positively within the pages, there are some that take a much less appealing look at it on the whole. I have been focusing recently on reading some of these different types of anti-Christian book choices just because they are books that are very interesting and even well received.

It is great to be able to study this area of literature and to learn more about the way that Christianity is portrayed within different types of books. I am very pleased with these different types of books on the whole as they really are helping me to learn more about the world and more about myself as well. Being able to explore this genre has been really good for me.

Twelve Signs of Unique American Idolatry

prayer-lists    As Christians begin Prayer Lists for 2017, it is more than advisable that every believer take a realistic view of the state of our nation in The Eyes of God’s Holy Word. While hundreds of churches and ministries may have achieved recent significant political victories, further attainment cannot be made without realistic looks at the nation’s weakening sinful conditions and possibilities of strong assaults against satanic enemies on spiritual battlegrounds.

All of these present problems cannot be covered in one blog message, but they can at least be outlined: 1) Increasing uses of killer drugs—including heroin; 2) Nation-side Obesity; 3) Male Sports Obsessions; 4) Pet animal Obsessions; 5) Materialism; 6) Dominant dependency on medicines; 7) Economic blindness to national pockets of poverty; 8) Love of Entertainment; 9) Increasing sexual defiance; 10) Denial of 300 years of national identity; 11) Creeping open paganism worship; 12) Falling away from Christianity—not believing in The LORD Jesus Christ or attending Christian churches or cathedrals.

We will cover each of these issues in coming blogs, but here is a hint: Last year, U.S. Deaths from heroin over-doses now outnumbers deaths in this nation from cancer or any other known physical diseases.  This record number of killer-deaths is soon followed by “legal” opiates, prescription drugs or hospital ‘medications’.  And these record “drug” induced deaths do not necessarily include historical cigarette, cigar or alcohol killers. These new, and usually illegally imported, addiction killers are bringing the nation to its knees.  And only the power of God, beginning with earnest Christian repentance and prayer, can stop such nefarious loses.

Much of these national failures begin with the fault of weak, and often unsaved, Christian leadership: men and women who have done everything possible in the last several decades to stifle the power of God in churches, especially the power of continuous weekly prayer meetings. Starting in the 1960s seminaries and pastors decided that group prayer in churches needed to be replaced with what they called “Bible Study.”

As a result church leadership has been vastly supplanted by television “ministries,” so-called Christian television-ministysinging entertainment, and the rise of semi-Christian and non-Christian cults.  Thus, believers seem to know less about the Bible than ever before, and certainly churches have little or no power to heal sicknesses, diseases; unite families; help solve unemployment, etc., or to affect the growing poverty creeping wholesale upon the nation.  Or as one verse in wholesale Christian Bibles puts it: “Where there is no vision, the people perish . . . (Proverbs 29: 18).  Vision of what, you ask?  Vision is the understanding and acceptance of the power of God, of His will, and especially of His way to attain that power as set forth in His Holy Word.  God’s people and the churches that bear His Name had best start praying now or the nation will soon be wiped off the face of the earth.
