Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?

One mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

Image
From 1 Timothy 2

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Yes, you can loose your salvation!

Image
Contrary to the 'once saved always saved' deception being spewed forth these days, we can loose our salvation and our name blotted out of the book of life.

In Revelation 3:5, Jesus says, "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels."

Revelation 20:15 says, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Romans 6:16 says, "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"

So we a choice: to be a servant of sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness.

1 Corinthinans 6:9-10 says, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers o…

Chief of sinners

Paul called himself, "chief of sinners" but in reality we ALL fall into that category.

Our sin separates us from God.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

From 1 Timothy 1
12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Je…

Have you received the gift of the grace of God and are you saved from sin?

You are special

Very few people are given the chance to become the sons of God.






MORE VIDEOS from lucaslabrador who writes:

JESUS CHRIST reigns!

Welcome to my channel. I do videos in batches, normally, of two to four videos, so you have to come here to see them all.

The Lord God of Israel; the God of the Christians, as He is in this Covenant era, OWNS this world, and all in it. It is high time that the wicked learned that, and His standard was honoured and aspired to in this land.

For the tiny few of the British people who are actually Christians things are getting tough. I pray that all will be encouraged through what I bring.

The gospel is by the sovereign grace of God alone. There are no filth Christians, but many nominal Christians are as disgusting and depraved as any media person, celebrity, politician, or whatever. Those people sicken God's actual people. I speak the truth of God that upsets the wicked, whether religious or not, but which is a delight to all who are genuinely saved from sin.

The Lord is Faithful

From 2 Thessalonians 3

1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:

2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.

3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.


Albert Pike was a man who believed a lie

Image
If you don't love the truth, you are subject to deception and Albert Pike is a prime example of this.

In his book, 'Morals and Dogma," 33rd degree Freemason Albert Pike wrote, "Masonry jealously conceals its secrets and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray . . . If you have been disappointed in the first three degrees, as you have received them . . . remember that . . . symbols were used, not to reveal but to conceal . . . The symbols and ceremonies of Masonry have more than one meaning. They rather conceal than disclose the Truth"

Albert Pike was also a Confederate general, a slaver, a British spy, a convicted Confederate war criminal, the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree, who was the Ku Klux Klan ritual designer - he was the Ku Klux Klan Chief Judicial Officer and Arkansas Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon!

William Josiah reports: "Very few Masons know that Albert Pike, the highest authority of Freemasonry, the Prince Adept, …

Praying for you

Image
Dear heavenly Father, I pray for the one reading this now that You would count them worthy of this calling and fulfill all the good pleasure of Your goodness and the work of faith with power that the name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in them and they in You according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!


From 2 Thessalonians 1

11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Are You a Child of Light?

Image
If Jesus Christ is your Lord, Saviour and Creator, you are!

And what does the Light do? It reveals the truth and beauty around us.

May our hearts always be drawn to the Light of the world - the Lord Jesus Christ - and to His Word, the Holy Scriptures.


From 1 Thessalonians 5:

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

The Lord is the avenger

Last night there was a tragedy here in Sonoma. A 17-yr-old boy was murdered by a gang member in the park not far from my home - so sad.

Today Karen and I were on the radio discussing the wickedness of Halloween.

The human heart is wicked and that's why we need a Saviour.

As long as folks turn away from the Lord Jesus Christ to their own selfish desires, there is no hope for them.

May the Lord use this killing to open people's eyes to the emptiness of their lives if they are without a personal relationship with the truth Living God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

From 1 Thessalonians 4

1Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.

2For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.

3For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

America's Secret Destiny by Ralph Epperson

Historian Ralph Epperson provides the evidence that this nation's founding fathers committed us to a "secret destiny", one that the people would not approve of if they knew about it in advance.

1 Thessalonians 2

From 1 Thessalonians 2

14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:

15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.

17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.

The Origin of Halloween

Image
Where and when did Halloween customs originate?

The many customs we have today in relation to Halloween have their origins in the religious practices of the Romans and the Druids, therefore dating back many centuries. The Romans worshiped various gods and on October 31, a special feast was held in honor of Pomona, goddess of the fruit trees. Later, the Druids, an ancient order of Celtic priests in Britain, made this feast an even more extensive celebration by also honoring Samhain, lord of the dead. This was normally done on November 1 and it was therefore decided to conveniently honor both Pomona and Samhain on October 31 and November 1.

These Druids believed that on the night before November 1 (October 31) Samhain called together wicked souls or spirits which had been condemned to live in the bodies of animals during the year which had just transpired. Since they were afraid of these spirits, they chose October 31 as a day to sacrifice to their gods, hoping they would protect them. Th…

Pensacola Tornado

10/19/07 UPDATE: See/read more at my daughter's blog.

Found this video clip (headsup... it has some strong language) tonight of one of the tornadoes that hit Pensacola today (more clips)



My daughter called me this morning as she was going to the store. A few minutes later around 11am, she called again saying that a tornado just hit and when she came outside, the parking lot was full of flipped cars!

We are thankful to God that her car only had one shattered window, still intact, and she wasn't hurt. It was still storming as it had been all morning as she drove away from the black sky which was away from her house. "I kept driving towards the light!" And eventually she make it home after passing down trees, broken telephone poles and flooded streets.

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt in Pensacola that we know of at this time. Praise the Lord!

She was protected also when hurricane Ivan hit a few years ago. Her house was fine but where she was staying, that roof blew off…

"I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." the Lord Jesus Christ

Image
Jesus said in John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

I don't like pain nor do I enjoy suffering, however, as we humble ourselves before the Lord and say, "Your will be done", He gives us the grace to endure both.

Hebrews 12:2 says, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

James 1:2-4 says, "My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."

1 Peter 1:6,7 says, "Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial …

Q. Is John Hagee a wolf? A. Yes!

Image
Jesus warned in Matthew 7:15, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

Careful evaluation of the teachings of John Hagee, pastor at the San Antonio-based Cornerstone Church, reveals false teaching and a defective view of a basic and essential issue regarding salvation and the Gospel.

For example, he preaches salvation for the Jew WITHOUT Jesus!

In the video below, Hagee makes these outrageous claims:

* The Jewish people, as a whole did not reject Jesus as Messiah.

* Jesus did not come to Earth to BE the Messiah.

* Jesus refused by word and deed to be the Messiah.

* The Jews cannot be blamed for not accepting what was never offered.


Galatians 1

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom

Image
From Colossians 3

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Beware lest any man spoil you

Image
From Colossians 2

6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.

From Colossians 1

12 ¶ Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Out From Behind Closed Doors

The testimony of former County Tyrone Orange Chaplain and Lecturer, Paul Stewart (Ireland)My name is Paul Stewart. I come from a family which includes a long line of Orangemen. My father is an Orangeman, so was his father before him and his father before him. In fact my great grandfather built the Orange Hall in which my family lodge - "Ballynakelly Rising sons of Ulster" No. 157 now sits. As a child, I grew up going to Sunday school, church, band parades, the "Twelfth" and the "last Saturday" (the Royal Black Preceptory parade in August). I got saved at the tender age of ten although I soon lost interest in the things of God as I followed my mates and their interests. At the age of 12, I joined a band and looked forward to the big parading days. I left the band at 16 years old and drifted, not knowing what I wanted out of life. Praise the Lord for his grace as in February 1984 I came back to the Lord. I didn't join the Orange Order at the eligible ag…

So this bird walks into a store...

A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.

The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn’t looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.

The seagull’s shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

Customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of chips because they think it’s so funny.

A Visit to California State Capital Building

Image
Last week I visited the state capital building of California which like Washington DC and all US government buildings, is riddled with Freemasonry symbols.

And once you begin to see them, it becomes clear that our government was founded not on Christian principles but rather on the secret & occultic ideas of Freemasonry.

The State Seal of California features the Roman 'goddess of wisdom' whose Latin name is Minerva (or Athena in Greek).

Besides Athena and Minerva, other names for this goddess/demon are:

Isis (Egyptian)
Ishtar (Babylonian)
Astarte (Syria)
Cybele (Rome)
Ashtoreth (Israel)
Diana (Ephesus)

According to John Robison's "Proofs of a Conspiracy" (1798), the third degree of the Bavarian Illuminati was called Minerval or Brother of Minerva, in honor of the goddess of learning.Later, this title was adopted for the first degree of Aleister Crowley's OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis) rituals.

Count Your Blessings

Image
This time of year brings crisp cool days with beautiful changing colors all around us.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and besides all the delicious food and fun times with family and friends, it is a time to be thankful to God as we count our blessings - something we should do every day.

We are all so blessed as the LORD Jesus Christ provides for all our needs daily - THANK YOU, LORD!

May we each have an attitude of gratitude as we speaking blessing to one another along with acts of kindness as we are able.














Numbers 6:

22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

Psalm 118

1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.

6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?



7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.

John 171 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou did…

Jesus is the Bread of Life

Freshly baked bread... yum! When living in Germany, I would buy bread at the corner market which was still warm when I got it home - so delicious!

In the scriptures, Jesus tells us that He is the Bread of Life that came down from heaven and those who believe on Him will have everlasting life.

John 631 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall c…

God thinks about you and me... A LOT!

This past weekend I visited a friend who lives in Pacifica, a beautiful sea coast city just south of San Francisco which normally is socked in with fog but was clear as a bell both Saturday and Sunday.

Marilyn and I went to high school together and reconnected at a recent reunion when we discovered we both were Christians. Our common bond being the Lord Jesus Christ brought us even closer than ever, more than sisters!

As we walked from her home to the pier and watched the waves splash on the sand, I was reminded of the scripture in Psalm 139:

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

Thank You, LORD God for never leaving us nor forsaking us and for sending us Your only begotten Son Who died, rose from the dead and lives today in order to give us eternal life by faith in Him - this is the Good News!
