Unplanned

I had the opportunity to see this movie a couple of weeks ago at one of our local theatres, and hope many of you will as well. To my pleasant surprise, there were a good number of young college-aged youth in attendance – praise God! Here in Canada the issue of abortion, or how the media and politicians often phrase it as the “woman’s right to choose”, tend to be banned from public discussion or debate, which is very sad. If the mother of an unborn child refuses to stand up and protect his/her right to life, who will?

As I see things, the underlying issue is not a “woman’s right to choose”, but whether or not human life, regardless of age, sex, culture, etc., is precious and valuable. The passion and vindictiveness of the “progressives” attack on our most innocent members of society are truly frightening, and in my humble opinion, fundamentally the outcome of a life being lived apart from the one true God. I see news reports on a daily basis about those in the abortion business (yes, it’s all about the MONEY), proudly bragging about how many women we have helped (murder their baby), and are doing “god’s work”. Now I know with certainty the God whom I serve, and His Name is JESUS CHRIST. The “god” they are referring to is the “god of this world”, or Satan – whether or not they realize this is another question. They will have much to answer for at the coming judgment.

What did God command Noah and his family after the Great Flood? To go forth and repopulate the Earth! Jesus desires an intimate relationship with every human being, that they may repent of sin, and be forgiven by His grace and shed blood. By what right do the so-called “defenders of women’s health” work tirelessly to destroy what God has miraculously created? This is wrong. This is evil. This is wicked. This is immoral. This is anti-life. This is murder. In Canada, abortion is considered legal (according to man’s laws), up to the moment of birth. Has anybody else been following the reports for the last year or so about the aborted baby parts business? Truly disgusting horrific, and wicked. May God judge them according to His perfect righteousness.

Back to the movie, I cannot recommend highly enough you make every effort to watch it, especially if you are pregnant and considering abortion. Yes, there are some graphic scenes, although they are not prominent throughout. You didn’t think abortion was painless and clean, did you?

Thank you, LORD, for creating countless new lives, conceived in your image, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I pray you will change the hearts and minds of our country so that no longer will our most vulnerable and innocent be deemed unimportant. Each and every life you create is important to You; may our hearts be compassionate towards those who need our love the most.

God bless,

Why vegan?

A fair question, to which I may choose to respond with; Why not? All kidding aside, this really is a good question, which for me, has two primary answers.

Answer #1

  • Because God created a perfect and sinless world, absent of diseases and death.
  • His original commandment was for all creatures, including humans, to eat plants.
  • Prior to original sin there could not have been death; the Bible states plainly that “everything was very good”.
  • Humans were given the task of having dominion over everything God created; i.e. “caretaker”, not “carnivore”.
  • All saved humans will NOTbe eating animals in the soon-coming Kingdom of Heaven.

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Genesis 1:29-31, KJV

How much clearer evidence do we need? Yes, humans caneat meat, however we were created to be vegetarians. Since death had not yet come into being, all animals must also have been vegetarian; right? If not, if animals were killing and eating one another, how could God’s creation be “very good”?

“They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat:
for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.” Isaiah 65:22, KJV

When God creates the new heaven and earth (Isaiah 1:17), there will be nomore death, no diseases, no decay; everything will once again be perfect, just as it was before Adam and Eve sinned. After the fall of man, God allowed humans to eat meat if they so desired, this point I cannot argue; Scripture plainly records this. However, there is nothing in human physiology requiringus to eat animals; rather, it is a testament to how well-designed (created in His image) we are.

“And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat. Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat. And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination. Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, And the vulture, and the kite after his kind; Every raven after his kind; And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth; Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even. And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean. And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even. And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even. And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.

And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it. Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean. And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you. Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean. And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean. But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you. And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even. And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten. Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination. Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby. For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.” Leviticus 11, KJV

If you are a typical Christian it is quite likely you have never read these passages before; most people have not. Not to worry, I won’t hold it against you. God gave very specific and direct instructions to Israel (these are notceremonial laws!), about what could, and could not, safely be consumed. Certain animals such as lobster, catfish, and pigs, are in our environment to help keep things clean, and may carry harmful, if not fatal, pathogens, and other nasty things which may harm us. Why take the chance? Why not simply adopt the diet God designed for us? Now, if you are a meat-eating Christian, please, please understand, I am in no way judging you; this is a non-salvationissue you should consider taking to God in prayer.

Answer #2

  • Modern factory farms and animal husbandry are cruel, filthy places; and not in accordance with God’s commandments on ‘having dominion over the earth”.
  • The entire food production process is about one thing; delivering low-quality food as cheaply as possible to the consumer.
  • There is nothing, I repeat nothing, we can get from animals which is not available in a much better, high quality, plant based, whole food source.
  • Over consumption of processed foods are causing unnecessary harm to all of us, and our environment.
  • What do the largest, strongest animals on earth (gorilla’s, blue whales, rhinoceros, horses, etc..) eat? Plants, Plants, Plants.

Disclaimer:The folks behind these resources may not be Christian (I have not checked); however, they do understand, and believe in the value of adopting a whole food, plant-based diet. Amazing Facts is a ministry of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, of whom I am in disagreement with some of their biblical teachings. You may find this video resource useful, as it clearly upholds God’s health and eating plan, clearly outlined in the Bible.

There are many, many resources out there. I challenge you to give a plant-based diet a chance for at least (2) weeks to see how you feel. What have you got to lose?

P.S.  – No I do not believe one’s dietary choice has any bearing on our salvation – Click here to learn about the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST.

Why abortion is murder

Everywhere we turn nowadays, the media, corporations, government, schools, universities, athletes, celebrities, and so on, celebrate abortion; the murder of our unborn innocents. How sad it must make God, to see the pinnacle of His creation, discarded and thrown away like yesterday’s refuse. Make no mistake, God loves each and every life which is so horrifically terminated; after all, He is the One who created them. The ongoing revelations of the business practices; precisely how Planned Parenthood, and other providers of murder see themselves, are utterly shocking and horrifying. What is so compassionate about a fetus’ body being torn apart in the womb? This is the reclusive, true, meaning, of “Women’s health”, so widely touted as progressive, fair, compassionate: truly, we live in wicked, evil times.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” – Psalm 139:13-14, KJV

Called in the womb
“Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearten, he people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me.”  – Isaiah 49:1-2, KJV
I formed thee
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou calmest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” –Jer. 1:5, KJV

God causes women to conceive
“And God remembered Rachel, and God heartened to her, and opened her womb.” – Genesis 3:22, KJV 

Contrary to the beliefs of our so called “experts”, no human being has ever been born because of evolution. Tragically, many so-called “civilized” countries, including Canada, legally consider an unborn baby a “non-person” until the moment of birth. Think about it: after 40 weeks of gestation in the womb, a new human life breathing, kicking, laughing; has zero legal status and protection until their emergence from the mother’s birth canal! Truly, our “advanced”, “tolerant” society, has become wicked, decadent, and evil in the eyes of God Almighty. He is not pleased, nor will His justice be withheld from those who support, fund, and practice such wickedness. It is an absolute guarantee no pro-abortion supporter or practitioner, will escape; they will all suffer God’s righteous vengeance for all eternity. Mercifully, if you are a woman who has had an abortion; if you are truly remorseful, and have repented of your sin, God is faithful, and is willing and able to forgive, heal, and cleanse you from all sin.

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness –1 John 1:8-9, KJV. Having read the bible, both Old and New Testaments many times, I see no condition or limitation on this promise. Continuing, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” – Colossians 1:12-14, KJV.

Apart from God; your life, my life, all life, is simply not possible. Through His Father, Jesus Christ is The Creator of all things, He gives life, and upholds all things by His divine power. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything that was made.” – John 1:1-3, KJV. Also, “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: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” – Colossians 1:16-17, KJV.

If you are pro-abortion, man or woman, with no regard for protecting our most innocent; you have been duly warned: eternal damnation awaits. On the other hand, if you are a woman thinking about having an abortion, please stop and reconsider. Are you prepared for the life-long grief and remorse that awaits you? Do not believe those who tell you there are no consequences: they are liars, all of them; do not be deceived! Are you a man who is pressuring your wife or girlfriend into having an abortion? You are guilty of murder in the eyes of God: yes, you heard correctly. You are under a veil of deception if you believe God does not notice, nor care; He most certainly does. Finally, if you are a woman who previously had an abortion; you can have true and lasting forgiveness, but only through genuine repentance, and belief in Jesus Christ: He will not abandon nor forsake you.

The Gospel Message

 

 

 

Government Is NOT in Control

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:13-14

These verses came to my mind, while listening this evening to the election coverage of our American friends to the south. As in Canada, the United States has, by and large, enmasse, willfully chosen to ignore our Creator God, to their peril. Our God will not be mocked; but make no mistake, He will have the final word on all things. Friend, will YOU, personally, respond to God’s calling? Is the time finally at hand for you to turn over everything to Him; it is all His anyway?

In the big picture, no government, social safety program, self-help program; nor anything the mind and will of man has created, will save you. Only the free, saving grace of Jesus Christ, is sufficient to rescue you from the festering evil all around. Over and over, God has promised in His Word to forgive the sin of anyone who repents, and turns fully to His saving grace and forgiveness. Whatever happens the evening, real hope is available; God is willing and able to bring hope, love, and forgiveness to your life, through Jesus Christ.

Blessings,

 

 

Abortion vs Cecil the Lion

With all of the recent media coverage and public outrage over the killing of Cecil the lion I have a very simple question ask. Where are the public protests and media outcry over the millions of babies murdered at the hands of abortionists every year??? Nothing, zilch, zero. A society who devalues human life is totally and absolutely morally bankrupt. How much longer will God endure these wicked, daily abominations to His Holy Name? Woe to those who were perpetrated these heinous crimes against Almighty God, they will not escape the judgment of our LORD, JESUS CHRIST.

I did a quick internet search earlier today using the phrases, “killing Cecil the lion is wrong” (29,800,00 results) and “abortion is evil” (18,500,000 results). Unsurprisingly, there was a lot more traffic looking for information on the lion, Cecil. I guess innocent human lives are not as concerning.. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-4XjlUm31CNH8QprDAFUYmUUhTMwj_ABZvt6bFoqtqs/edit?usp=sharing

Although the bible does not use the word, “abortion”, directly, it is abundantly clear that God places a very high value on human life. Every human being is formed inside the womb in His image, so there is absolutely no difference between a newly-formed fetus, and a baby just delivered. God is involved directly and personally in the conception, development, and growth of every human being.

Behold, I formed thee
“Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet to the nations.”  Jeremiah 1:4-5, KJV

Covered in the womb
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.”  Psalm 139:13, KJV

Knowest not the works of God
“As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.”  Ecclesiastes 11:5, KJV

Formed thee in the womb
“Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb,which will help thee…”  Isaiah 44:2, KJV, and also, “And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him…”  Isaiah 49:5, KJV

Folks, ABORTION = MURDER – those are the true facts, and says volumes about the moral state of our country and society. Do not be deluded into believing an unborn baby is not fully human, this is a lie of the devil. If God notices when a single sparrow dies, how much more does He notice when a helpless, innocent baby is killed? The eternal consequences to those who participate in, and support this “industry”, is not going to be very pretty.

Woe to the astrologers and soothsayers

Quite clearly, it is necessary for the people of God to turn away from practicing the ways of the world. People who seek after lies will never be free to embrace the truth of God, with all who have rejected God destined to be punished in the lake of fire. I beseech you to believe the true and pure words of God!

Isaiah 47:6-15  ~Stand now with thine enchantments~

Verses 6-7
“I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke. And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

Verses 8-9  [Consequences for the use of sorceries and enchantments]
Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

Verses 10-11  [Ye have trusted in thy wickedness]
For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it that perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me. Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

Verses 12-13  [Ye have used enchantments and sorceries]
Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

[Let the astrologers and stargazers save thee from My wrath]
Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

Verses 14-15   [Ye shall be burned by a destroying fire]
Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

[And none shall save thee]
Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.”

Leviticus 20:1-8  ~I will set My face against you~

Verses 1-2  [All who sacrifice to Molech shall be put to death]
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

Verses 3-4  [I will cut off the man who defiles My name]
And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

Verses 5-6  [Do not go a whoring after wizards]
Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

Verses 7-8  [Keep My statutes and be ye holy. for I am the LORD]
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you.”

Leviticus 20:23-27  ~Separate the clean and unclean~

Verses 23-24  [Do not walk in the manner of other nations]
“And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nations, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people.

Verses 25-26
Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

Verse 27  [A wizard shall be put to death]

Verses 28-29

Deuteronomy 18:9-14  ~These things are an abomination~

Verses 9-10
“When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

Verses 11-12
Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee to do so.”

~Ye will not enter into the kingdom of God~

“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:3-4

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolators, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Revelation 22:13-15
