The book of Galatians chapter 2 verse 20. For I have been crucified with Christ. Nevertheless I live. And yet it is not I that am living. But Christ who lives in me. And this life that I now live in the flesh. I live by faith in the Son of God. Who loved me and gave his own life for me. If you are truly sick and tired of being sick and tired. Surrender to Jesus. Paul has just explained to us the crux of being born again in Christ. When you mean business with God. You are actually committing yourself to the utter and total destruction of who you were prior to your conversion. Spiritual suicide if you will. You have actually given up willingly all the rights you had as an individual. And have placed yourself under the Master…The Lord Jesus Christ. First Corinthians chapter 6 verse 19 and 20.What then do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is now in you? Which you have been given by God. And that you are no longer your own? For you have been bought with a great price. Therefore glorify God in your body. And in your spirit which are now Gods.
When a man or woman has a true conversion experience. A dramatic change ensues in who they are. There is both an immediate change as well as an ongoing conversion process.
Paul just said that your body has just become the temple of the Holy Ghost. And that the Holy Ghost is now residing in you. And guess what? He is not to happy if you continue in your old lifestyle after he has taken up residency. Second Corinthians 5 verse 17..If any man is in Christ. He is a new creature. Behold …old things have passed away. And all things have become new again. As Catholics we baptize infants. The reality is that it is the heartfelt hope and desire of the parents. That is those parents who are themselves living for Christ. That their babe will be a Christian. During the First Holy Communion and later The Confirmation. These commitments are re affirmed by the youngsters themselves.
And during the annual Easter mass. We all as a congregation. Confess with our own mouths together as a body.What it is that we believe as Christians. And we denounce Satan in our lives. But all of this is an exercise in futility unless it is truly the desire of the individual to let Christ take over and rule their lives. For without that understanding and desire of the individual heart. You and I are just mouthing worthless words. And for most. This is in fact the case. It is like raising your hand in court . Swearing to tell the truth. And then lying your way through the proceedings.For no change has or will occur in this type of individual. It is a hard concept for many to grasp. The Holy Spirit living in us. When we truly understand and embrace this fact of regeneration in Christ. It will become nearly impossible for you to treat yourself and your body the same way. Back to First Corinthians chapter 6 beginning in verse 15 this time. Like it or leave it…Like it or leave it..Do you not know that your bodies are now the members of Christ? Will you then take the members of Christ and join them together with a whore? God forbid. Do you not know that he who has intercourse with a whore has become one body with that whore? And its not just a whore. Its sex out of wedlock.A.K.A. fornication. Friends…In Christ your body is not a garbage disposal unit. You are now a holy vessel committed for the Lords use and residence. You have become a tenant in your flesh body. And God is residing there with you…Think about it…to be continued
The only thing necessary for evil to prevail is for good men and women to do nothing. I believe that quote is attributed to Benjamin Franklin. However I am not sure. Suffice to say that this statement is certainly a truism. You don’t have to look to far to see the spirit of anti Christ at work. Some times its a girl in a magazine photo. And other times its the guy sitting next to you in church with a suit and a tie The book of Romans chapter 6 verse 16.
Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves as servants to obey. His servants you become who you obey…Second Timothy chapter 4 beginning inverse 1. I’m reading from the Amplified bible. I used this text to better help you understand. Its similar to that used in that stack of romance novels under your bed….I charge you in the presence of God and of Jesus Christ Who will judge the living and the dead. And by the light of his coming and of his kingdom.
Herald and preach the word! Keep your sense of urgency. Whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. Whether it seems convenient or inconvenient. Whether it is welcome or unwelcome. You as a believer are to show people in what way their lives are wrong. And convince them by warning and rebuking and correcting and urging them. How it is that God can help them change for the better. We continue… Being inexhaustible and unflagging in patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction. But instead having itching ears for something pleasing and gratifying. They will gather to themselves one teacher after another. Teachers chosen to satisfy their own liking. And to foster the errors they hold on to. And will turn away from the truth. And will wander off into myths and man made fictions.
We have been commanded by God to preach his gospel so long as there is breath to do so. Do not even attempt to tell me or God that it is beyond the realm of possibility for you to do so.You simply start flapping your jaws like you do every day of the week. Only this time your jaws are flapping and the good news of Jesus is flying out over your lips. Refusal to do this is in and of itself the spirit of antichrist. For you are refusing to do what the savior has asked you to do. You are ashamed of him. We are told that whether or not it seems convenient or not. And whether or not we are received well for doing so or not. We are to do it. Refusal to do this is also the spirit of antichrist at work. Now Einstein let me ask you a question? Please tell me the answer. Just who do you think is behind you deciding that talking about Jesus is not a good thing to do today? Can you spell SATAN. That’s correct sir or mamm. By refusing to do Gods will you have accepted the will of the ultimate anti Christ himself. Lucifer.
We also see that we are warned about those who would assemble together under teachers who would not ruffle their feathers. In churches whose pastors preach a watered down comfy, cozy sermon. One that doesn’t expose the tax evasion you have planned for April 15. One that allows you to attend church without exposing the sin of cohabitation that you and your boy toy have grown so fond of. Yes there is the supreme anti Christ. And then there are all of his little minion antichrists. Choosing to do his bidding while denying the will of God. A bishop the other night said that 20% of the Catholics go to church in Philadelphia occasionally. And I would imagine that few if any of those witness to anyone. He spoke of closing buildings down that were once full of parishioners and students.
This really gets my goat. If cowardly wimps like you. If you would get off your duff. And start evangelizing the way God intended for you to do. These buildings would be full. Forget about the 80% who don’t want to go. Let the devil have his way with them. And then we will see who wants to go to church or not. Feast your eyes on this you disobedient wretch. Laughing at me as I type out this blog. Second Thessalonians chapter 1 verse 7…And to you who are being troubled rest with us. When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with hid mighty angels in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God. And on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord. And from the glory of his power. chapter 2 verse 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion. that they should believe a lie. that they all might be damned. Who choose to not believe the truth. But rather had pleasure in unrighteousness…To be continued
Now back to business. The enemy of our souls. Who is Satan. Has been fighting Catholicism for a long long time. And he continues to do so this very hour. And for you who think that by my stating this. I am nothing more than some big pompous wind bag Yankee fan. I would ask you to follow my logic. And reserve your David Wright, Tom Seaver and Keith Hernandez comments for later. What I am asking you to focus on are three Catholic saints. Two of which have holidays named after them. They are Saint Francis, Saint Valentine and Saint Patrick. Now as the Pundit. I am always happy to exercise my right to exorcize any demons. Wherever and whenever I may come across them. And this is such a time. Does it strike you as being a little bit odd? My demon oppressed reader. That three greatly venerated saints holidays. Are and have been torn to shreds by the secular society in which we find ourselves. St. Francis has become the patron saint of birdbaths. St. Valentines day has been made into the holiday for cupid,fornication and lingerie sales. And every other perversion that mankind can think of.
And you would think that St. Patrick was the patron saint of drunkards, rowdy’s and perverts. But since I am typing this on the eve of this great Catholic saint. I thought it would be an honor and a privilege to set the record straight. In some small way. As to who exactly Patrick was. First of all. Patrick was not Irish.So sorry all you drunkard, stoned Irishmen out there. Patrick was born into a family of some means. No he was not rich. But they were not poor either. When Patrick was in his teens. A band of marauders. Or as we would call them pirates. Came from Ireland and attacked the villa where he lived. They took Patrick and thousands of others back to Ireland as slaves. Now Patrick’s father was a deacon and his uncle was a priest. And guess what? God had a plan for Patrick’s life as well. While in Ireland for many years. He was the slave of a pagan Celtic priest. It was in his servitude. That he learned of their pagan practices. As well as learning the Celtic language. Years later after his freedom was gained. God sent Patrick back to the land that held him in bondage.To release them from the bondage of Satan’s grasp. Second Corinthians chapter 6 verse 17 and 18. Listen to what Jesus is commanding you to do. You drunken perverted Irishman. Who just happens to disgrace Catholicism by your saying you are one…Come out from among them. And separate yourself from them. And do not touch or do unclean things. And I the Lord will receive you. And I will be a father to you. And you will be my sons and daughters says the Lord of hosts.
So put away your hash pipe bud. And stay home and drink some green machine. Spend your day in the word of God. And start to set the record straight. Your not a Catholic. You are a son of Satan. And a disgrace to the great Saint Patrick…to be continued
In one of my previous blogs..in fact I may not have even posted it as of yet. Jesus stood before his disciples. It was in fact a day of reckoning for many of them so to speak.It was a time to either step up and move on in God. Or to step back and retreat into the world from which they had been delivered. He said to them. Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood…you have no part in me. The scripture says that from that moment forward many of them departed. In other words they were dropping out of the program. It doesn’t matter to me what you think of me personally or what I have to say. I am simply a servant doing what God told me to do. This is in fact my work. And whether or not 1 or 1 million read this blog and become Christians is frankly not under my control. I know who I am in Christ and I know who Christ is in me. And your opinion of me and this blog matters little. For I am not here to please or coddle anyone.
A young man recently contacted me regarding this blog. He told me that he liked it. But he also said that he didn’t think his mom or her friends cared to much for it. Jesus was telling the disciples at that point in time that is was going to be from this point forward…all or nothing at all.They were to either fully consume him and the Fathers teachings or shrink into obscurity. If you are truly living the Christian life. There will and are going to be many pleasant and unpleasant hurdles to overcome. John 16 verse 33.These things I have spoken to you. That in me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer. For I have overcome the world. That was Jesus. If you are in him and he is in you. Even during tribulations and setbacks you will have peace. If you are already in a state of uneasiness. And all that you are doing is reading a blog. Than you need to come to salvation in Christ.
When I have a splinter in my hand. I generally take a sewing needle and heat up the tip with a match. I then wipe it down with alcohol to sterilize it and begin to pick the fragment out of my flesh. Its not pleasant. But it is necessary. For if I or you were to leave this foreign body in our body it would certainly become infected.. if not a lingering source of aggravation. You cannot keep unconfessed sin in your body. It will become a malignancy. If these deeper teachings in Christ are upsetting to you. Than it is high time to get in your bible and on your knees. Matthew chapter 12 verses 34 and 37…Jesus is speaking. For out of the abundance of your heart…your mouth speaks. For by your own words you will be justified. And by your own words you will be condemned. Whatever you are full of is what you are going to speak. And Jesus told the disciples it was time to consume him and nothing but him. Tell me something Miss. When you are speaking to your neighbors over the fence. Or when you get together for a little brunch. What is the topic of your typical conversation. If you or they have no hunger to speak of the things of God then you are not in a good place. I cannot wait to talk about Christ. And do you know what? That conversation rarely happens.
And do you know why? Because the Catholics and so called Christians that I meet. Act and treat me with the same type of contempt for the things of God that the out and out unsaved do. It is pathetic. Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness. So belly up to the table of God and eat. And when you are done. Get out there and share the meal with someone who has not eaten of the Lord as of yet…To be continued
Pardon me if you will for my play on words. But if may continue for just a moment to make my point. Hollywood if it could. But it wont because it don’t… know Jesus. My apologies for the poorest of grammatical expression. However now I will drag Hollywood to the proverbial woodshed for a good drubbing. Pundit style. Has it ever entered your mind… just how much momentary pleasure you would get out of storming into some fat cats boardroom? With a band of brothers by your side. And letting them know in beat down fashion.Just how much you cant stand them and what they have done to our country. As Martha and the Vandellas so aptly sung. No where to run from me baby…No where to hide. Now I know what your thinking. My goodness Mr. Pundit. Your a Christian. How could you insinuate such gross violence? Why this is totally unacceptable. Agreed! However such action is not unprecedented. The Gospel of Mark chapter 14 and verse 43.This occurred as Judas was approaching Jesus and the apostles in the garden to betray him…And immediately while Jesus was speaking, Judas came who was one of the twelve apostles with a great multitude having swords and staves. Sent from the chief priests and scribes and elders of the synagogue. And Judas who had betrayed him had given them a sign saying. Whoever I kiss. He is the one who calls himself Jesus. And as soon as he came he said Master, Master and kissed him on the cheek. And one of the disciples who stood by pulled out a sword and hacked the servant of the high priest cutting off his ear.
To bad in my opinion that he wasn’t that good with the sword. He only got his ear. I don’t think I would have missed. And more than likely quite a melee would have ensued if I was there as well. Apparently one of the boys was carrying a little life insurance under his tunic. And don’t think for a minute that Jesus was not only aware of it… and could have stopped it as well. Keep in mind that these people were walking and talking and sleeping and eating with Jesus for a long time. And still the sword under the tunic. We are human and God knows exactly who he’s calling to be his own. A guy who carries a sword brings something to the table that Mary Magdalene does not. Capish? Now don’t start with your religious diatribe on just what kind of person you think I am. And that you think your so much better than I. And now back to Hollywood. I have been alive for quite a bit longer than many of you readers. I have been watching closely for many a year the evil that Hollywood and the media have been cramming down our throats. Looking back I would have to say that I was more spiritual than I thought as a youth. For even in the sixties my mind was already calculating the cunning involved in what they were doing. But I took note of it never the less…and have continued to do so to this very day. If such a vast network was converted for the cause of Christ…my God how many souls could have been saved rather than lost. But its not.. nor will it ever be. They serve Satan and he is their master. Why of course a woman superhero should be wearing a thong and fishnet stockings. What else could she possibly wear?
Oh yes… with a wave of a sorcerers wand an innocent child is now contemplating if he or she could possibly perform some magic. As the secret agent molests yet another woman of the night. Another marriage comes undone. A father leaving his wife and children for a new sexual fling with a co-worker. Satan knows exactly what he is doing. And you are a willing participant in his charade. Aren’t you? It started years ago. With a little leg show from a long evening gown. A martini held in hand…cigarette smoke being blown out the nostrils. And of course the ever present seductive glare. The first porno mags showed women in bathing suits. And now where it has gone is nothing short of full blown demonic activity of the highest order. My job as a Christian is something like that of a crime reporter. I bring to light more often than not. The absolute grossest shortcomings of humanity. Including those in myself. Now if your asking why? And you are. In order to defeat an enemy we need to know his actions. And if you are to be ever fully free in your own life. The darkest recesses of your soul need to be brought into the glorious light of Jesus Christ. Lay it all at the foot of the cross my friend. Hebrews chapter 13 verse 5..For Christ has said. I will never leave you or forsake you….To be continued
