BLASPHEMY VS BLESSING ( the feast of Ishtar)

BLASPHEMY VS BLESSING ( the feast of Ishtar) 

Hello all, 

On this feast of Ishtar I am sickened once again to think that the vast majority of people who call themselves Christians are defiling themselves with  the worship of other gods and doing it in the name of Jesus.  It would not be so bad if they just call it what it is, and celebrate spring and the rebirth of nature or whatever, but to tie it in with the Resurrection of Christ is blasphemy in the first degree! 

They do it in the name of Jesus, yet their hearts are far from Him. We are to worship in Spirit and in Truth, and the spirit of this celebration is the spirit of antichrist, and there is no truth found in what they do. Most do not want to know the truth, even when one tells them how these holidays are pagan and are on the satanic calendar straight from Babylon.  Even when they see there is nowhere in the Bible that tells us to celebrate “Easter”.  They do not want to know, they want to stay blind and let wolves in sheep’s clothing keep pulling the wool over their eyes! 

They say they do it for their children; the bunnies and easter egg hunts and the eating of a pig.  It is fun for them and they do not want to spoil their fun.  Even when they know the evil roots of all this they say they are not worshiping the bunnies or eggs, and as long as they acknowledge Christ on this day, it is alright and good.

They teach their children that is is good to dishonor God, as long as you do it in His name.  I think this is a form of passing your children through the fire that the Lord warns us about not doing. 

Not only that, it is a violation of the Greatest Commandment of loving the Lord with all ones heart, soul and mind; in word, thought and deed.  How can they not know that by their deeds they will be judged, and saying they love the Lord and then doing these pagan deeds is a willful disregard of the Word of God, and a willful regard for the lies of Satan.  They choose this, even when they know the truth…they choose to wilfully disregard it.  And, not only disregard it, but hate the one who told them this truth.  

By not celebrating this “unholy day” real  followers of Christ are thought of as deserters of the faith and troublemakers that are upsetting the applecart of Christian fellowship, and of course this so called”fellowship” has become more important than Christ and the Truth.  There is strength in numbers and if they all believe the same things, then of course the few who disagree are outcasts.  They love the wide way as they have plenty of company and are never alone. The narrow way is too lonely and not popular and who wants to risk losing all their friends in this world. 

This brings me to the question of whether or not they have a personal relationship with Christ.  How could they continue in this manner if they truly knew the Lord?  This really hits home the fact that “the Way is narrow and only a few will find it”.  How sad that these are the people that attend church and are pillars in the community that are to represent Christ in this world.  They have become lovers of self, and of fame, and of power, and of the populous opinion. Yet, they are but pillars of salt, as they have known the truth and turned back to the world and to the worship the gods, thereof.  

We are to love these people and forgive them, for in most cases they know not what they do.  Yet, even when informed of what they are doing they turn their backs and return to their pagan ways.  They do not want to know, as knowing is too much of a burden and too unpopular.  The modern church is filled with people like this, because anyone seeking truth and preaching it is not welcome in their “circles”.   

I guess the reason I am compelled to write this “rant” is because Christians whom I love dearly, and are like family to me, are celebrating this unholy day in all the pagan ways that I have mentioned.  They are aware of how I feel about it, and have honored the fact that I want no part of it, which I appreciate.  Each time I have tried to expose what this holiday is all about, they want no part of what I am trying to convey, and defend their position with the excuse of it’s for the children and we do not worship the easter bunny.  That may be all good and well as a way to silence me, but my concern is what will they tell Jesus at the Judgment Seat. 

Sometimes love is not all goodness and light, sometimes it is all about exposing darkness and evil.  A love that uncovers the ugliness of what one calls beautiful, a love that attempts to snatch from the fire those who willingly desire to be burned.   A love that is all about giving up the world and not joining in its pleasures. A love that Jesus showed the whole world when He died on our behalf. 

So, on this day, I want to thank and honor all my brothers and sisters in Christ who have come out of this world and are doing their best to expose the lies of Satan to those they love in an attempt to help them wake up to truth.  All those who are willingly giving up the pleasures of this life, and taking the cold rejection by their fellowman knowing that their reward awaits in heaven.  All those giving up their lives here in this world, and taking on their duties as watchmen on the wall with the responsibility to keep warning, even if no one is taking heed.  Those who are willing to be hated by all men to gain the love of the Lord. 

This is our tribulation in this world.  To give up all worldly pleasures, fame,  and popularity to gain Christ, and know it is the only reason we were born.  To count every other gain as loss in regards to knowing our King, our Lord and our Savior!!

 To all dedicated to Truth and Love, and sharing both so selflessly, may the Lord continue to bless you with more and more truth and love.  Surely He is coming soon. 

JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!

Hello all! What a long strange trip it has been! I am amazed that through 40 years of Bible studies, Bible College, and attending a multitude of churches, of varying denominations, I have come full circle back to the day when I was “born again”. On that day (Sept 24th 1978) I found the Truth when Jesus found me. I knew in an instant that I could live in eternity by living in the moment with Christ. God is love and loves everyone and wants everyone to be set free in Christ. That the spiritual world trumps the material world and by focusing on Christ one can live spiritually every moment, and death to self brings abundant new life. This was massively life changing! I went from being broken to being whole! I could not contain the love and joy within me. I was a different person and all my relationships changed. And shortly after that earthshaking day, I did sell everything I owned and went on the road proclaiming the JOY of the Good News!! Yet, after three years, I settled down and starting going to church, realizing I had not truly studied the Word of God. I had attended church as a child and as a teen I sang in the choir and taught vacation Bible school, so I knew the major highlights of the Gospel, and pretty much believed what preachers were preaching about God’s Word. Still, I did not find the fire of the Spirit in many of the churches I attended. To me, all the different denominations were creating division not unity in the body of Christ, by chopping up the Word to suit the traditions of men. In 1997 I decided to start reading and studying the Bible for myself. I read books about the “rapture” and the Left Behind series of books and started to see how churches were so divided on these issues and nothing they were teaching really rang true in my heart. I attended Bible College in 2004 and got my Masters in Theology and really got into understanding the End Times as taught by the pre-trib and pre-wrath rapture groups and authors. I was completely sold on this interpretation of the Bible, so much so, that I started writing about it on a pre-trib web site called Five Doves. I got really into waiting for the rapture and trying to figure out the timing and all that, and wrote many many articles about how and when this would happen. It was exciting, I felt that I was learning so much. The more I studied on my own the more I started to see that I did not see in His Word the same things that others were seeing and started to write about what I was finding. As soon as I did this, and started to stray away from the herd of pre-tribbers, I was thrown off the web site. As soon as that happened, the Lord started giving me new revelations and I started asking questions and rely on Him to show me in His Word the answers I was looking for. The major turning point was when I started writing for another web site (Rapture Prophecy Bible Forum) and found out who Israel truly is. That is the foundation for all Bible study…once one knows whom Israel is, one can never go back to dispensational beliefs. That opened the flood gates of revelations from the Lord. He made sure that I would have the time to truly focus on what the Holy Spirit was showing me. I fell down some stairs and broke both of my feet and was not able to do anything but study the Bible. And Study I did!! I was consumed with it, day and night and felt on fire for the Truth. Things that I had believed in for so long just fell away, and everyday I was finding out more and more. Although I started to see that there is no end time rapture, I still believed in a future Second Coming and that we were in the Last Days and how the world was becoming a dark place full of evil. I wrote much about this…even on this blog. Yet, at the same time finding out about the Kingdom of God and how it has already come, and how the Jewish feasts have all been fulfilled in Christ. We are not waiting for the last three to be fulfilled as so many preach and teach. The plan of Salvation was FINISHED AT THE CROSS, and all that was left to be fulfilled was the sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost…the 7th and last feast not the 4th…and Christ’s Second Coming in Judgment and the resurrection of the saints. That brings me up to recent time, and my most recent revelations from the Lord and I am shocked at what I have found out! I never even conceived that the Bible was a finished work and that there was no longer anything left to be fulfilled. Yet, that is what I have found out and it is AMAZING how I feel totally set free!! The Truth truly does set one free from the searching and the divisions of the traditions of man!! It all makes so much sense and every verse has taken on a new and heartfelt meaning!! It is GOOD NEWS!! Jesus is our King we can live in His Kingdom RIGHT NOW!! He did ALL He said he would do, when He said He would do it, all we need to do is KNOW HIM. The only event left to happen will happen to each of His children when they pass from this world and into eternity. I was so overwhelmed by my discoveries that I did not know how to approach beginning to write about it. Also, it labels me (and I hate labels in reference to divisions in Christ) I find that I have become a full Preterist. I would never ever have thought this is where my studies would lead, but cannot deny it is where the Lord has brought me. I am now ready to start proving it and that is what I will be doing from here on out. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of all this is that it has brought me full circle. When I was born again and shown the power of Jesus and relying on Him, I knew it was finished in Him…He was the answer to all. Love is the strongest power in the universe and God is love. Nothing else really mattered. It was not until I got caught up in the “traditions of men” that the path got crooked and the way confusing. Yet, it is so wonderful to find out that His Word tells us the Truth, and that Jesus is the Way, the TRUTH, and the life. That being said, I will be posting studies that helped me understand, and hope that anyone out there that is reading this may find what they may be looking for, as they take this journey OF FINDING OUT FOR YOURSELF. God bless all, and may you be in His love and Light today and always!! JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!! Patti C.
