From God, To My Heart, To You, This is one of the most important posts I have ever written.

As everyone knows, I support Israel because my God tells me to honor Israel. However, we oftentimes forget an important thing Jesus told us: to love our enemies, and pray for those who hate us. Let me tell you this..God in the beginning made all of us! It is Satan who has caused the divisions and him we should hate! Yes, us people allow ourselves to be used by Satan, and we are responsible for allowing him to do so. However, we are to love and pray for all!
I post news here that pertains to prophecy. I am a follower of YHVH. I am filled with the Holy Spirit. I believe that if you do not know Jesus as your Savior, you will not go to heaven. But…and yes…I am sure you saw the ‘but’ coming…God loves these people too! They will not go to heaven (except for their children) if they die without knowing Jesus. Does anyone deserve an eternity in hell? This is forever we are talking about! God doesn’t think so, that’s why He sent Jesus. No, but Satan is the one who lures souls to hell with deception. We are the light of the world carrying the Spirit of God and His truth to ALL men and women and children! , the Son of (GOD)
Here is an important question, and this question makes me have so much respect for those who have come out of other religions and found the true Jesus, the Messiah.. If you were born in the Middle East and raised by an Islamic family, and you knew no different. And you were taught to love people, but to hate Christians and Jews…how hard would it be to get to your soul? You would know no different! The only hope is love and prayer.
Now, I do not propose that we are to accept and intermingle our faiths, or shun our faith. That would be blasphemous! We are to never, ever pervert or sacrifice the truth of God’s Word! Everyone who knows me here knows I am very zealous and I literally hate the false love message being preached today….which is….don’t share the truth if it offends, just be nice and kind. That is NOT what the Bible says to do. It says to share the truth to the point of persecution, and to rejoice in the suffering! But I do find more hatred and bickering among fellow Christians who seek out to nit-pick and debate other fellow Christians. There is a HUGE difference between Godly correction and discipline and Judging. There are a lot of perversions these days on the word “Judgment” too that gets thrown around at fellow Christians for speaking truth…but that’s a whole different post altogether. I could go on and on about that one until I’m blue in the face. Tell a misled Christian the truth these days, and they’d assume take your head off too!
The Body of Christ is greatly overlooking prayer! I see a lot of hatred for Muslims… Muslim hate sites, and the such. Are we to hate the Muslims? I know with all the media, it is hard to love a people whom we see so much bad coming our way from. That’s not my point. You are commanded by God to LOVE your enemy! It does not matter how you ‘feel’. If your faith is based on feelings, you have some serious issues. Our faith is based on God and His promises. We are ONLY here in this short life to serve Him..and that is it. My friend, you are not here to play video games, go dancing, go out to eat, watch television, party, watch movies, etc. That is deception! You are here to serve God.
You gave your life to Him. He owns you! You do what He tells you to do! Stop changing His truths all around to conform to your pleasures and your selfish desires!
Hate the devil and love the people. Dear reader, there are a lot of people in general, including Muslims, who would love to get a hold of me and hang me by my toenails. But, God has commanded me to boldly speak the truth, even at the cost of my physical life! He has commanded me to love my enemy. Yet, He has commanded the same to you as well! Are you hearing me? The Body of Christ needs chastised. I could count 500 hate Muslim websites against only 1 website preaching the truth! Why are we spending more time posting messages of hatred and fear than we are posting messages of being a true believer in Jesus Christ? Because it might offend? Yes, you will see news posts about what is going on in the world here. This is truth. People must know what is going on as it pertains to Bible Prophecy and the corruption in the world so we will repent, pray, and lead people to Christ! Time is short! But I will NEVER post a hate message, nor a comment that spews graphic hatred. Yes, there are comments posted of disdain from people, and that is okay. But I won’t post hatred. A few have slipped by on accident, and for that, I apologize. My mistake and sloppiness.
Stop hating and start loving! Do not conform, and do not be politically correct. Speak the truth boldly at all costs! But as you do…love them! I am posting a link here with some graphic photos of Palestinians during the recent war. I urge you to look at them. You need to know that the suffering of those we call our ‘enemy’ is real. They are not our enemy…Satan is our enemy! For we wrestle NOT against flesh and blood! Ephesians 6:10-20! CLICK HERE FOR A REALITY CHECK I have been loyal and shown enough things to do with the unfair treatment of Israel and other Christian people. Now it is time to take a look at the sufferings of the ‘other’ side. A fair look. Can you look with me?
Can you call yourself a true follower of Jesus Christ (Christian) and deny God’s Word? I don’t care what you think. God does not care what you think. You and I are nothing but tiny specks of dust on the tip of God’s finger! Yet He cares for you! And what do we do? We shun Him and disobey Him….hide Him on the bookshelf or in the closet. Why? Because we’re too busy? Too afraid of rejection? Angry? Hurt? Your life isn’t what you like it to be, so you blame Him? Or, your life is too good, and you don’t need Him? What is your reason? For though we are a speck of dust (actually, smaller) God loves us and watches over us. Amazing.
We sit on our butts daily while hundreds of people go to hell in a 24/hr period of time! Did you know as you’re reading this, someone is being sentenced to hell (by Satan who leads them there)? Did you know children are being tormented somewhere? Brutalized? Beaten? Starved? Neglected? Yeah, as you’re lying back in your tub relaxing, or curling up with a good book…or….stuffing your face….people are dying, being tormented, persecuted, starved, and everything. And you complain because you don’t want to give something up in your life you are NOT supposed to be doing?
Please, see this link..and remember…pray for people everywhere…including those in Palestine, Africa, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq, Iran…love them! Let Jesus become you…remember, He was being tormented by the very people He loved and cared about… spat upon…. beaten…. every horrible thing imaginable He suffered at the hands of those He passionately loved.
Don’t call yourself a Christian if you do not have love. I challenge you today to stop loving Jesus….that’s right…stop! Instead, FALL IN LOVE with Him, and then you will learn how to love those who hate you. After all, if God kept a track record on you, which included your thoughts and secret things, what would it look like? And do you actually think you deserve God’s mercy? No! None of us do. We deserve nothing. God is merciful. So before you spit on your enemy, remember, our battle is against Satan and the kingdom of hell…and you once belonged to the kingdom of Hell yourself before you asked Jesus into your heart. And quite honestly, if you are living outside of His will, you’ve got one foot in Hell anyways. That’s what the Bible says. You can’t serve two masters. I realize I sound harsh, but this is the way I speak truth. I don’t fancy it up or try to tickle people’s ears. There’s enough ear tickling and sugar coating going around to suffice…and not enough of the true, hard cold facts being taught. Oh, and just in case someone feels I’m judging..I’m just as guilty as everyone else in this world of NOT doing things right. We all mess up!
One final thought: Nowhere in the Bible does it say to love Israel and hate everyone else! Even the people of Israel do bad and unfair things! And remember, many of them do not accept Jesus either. This is no different from ANY other faith who rejects Christ! We honor Israel because God commanded us to. They are His firstborn…His nation! But we still honor God by loving and praying for other peoples and nations as well!
1 Corinthians 13
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
ONE FINAL THOUGHT: I am not trying to turn anyone against Israel! I love Israel! I am trying to show you that we are lacking in love, compassion, and prayer for the other side. They too are people! They too have children! Also, consider there are Christians living in these areas as well. Israelis are persecuted and tormented regularly! We must pray for ALL of them! From Israel to Iraq…Jesus must be revealed to them all! If we hate and we curse, then the Lord cannot move in our prayers, including your own personal prayers! Your life in Him will be hindered if you have hatred. Shalom!
