Apostasy is a falling away, a withdrawal, a defection.
I’m looking back on what I just wrote below this paragraph. I didn’t mean to write more than a few things, but God took over and next thing I know it’s hours and hours later. So this must be pretty important to God and what is happening in the world today. I always pray its God speaking through me and I believe it is. Perhaps I throw my own personality into wording, but something I’m sure you’ve already noticed. I’ve done that in spending the last year and a half creating this website. I am thankful for what satan did in creating a fake pandemic is turned into Gods glory. God tells me to be me so that’s exactly what I’m doing……I do have to say after going back and reading what I have throughout this site, I can honestly say it’s not me but the Holy spirit touching the keyboard. I give all the glory to God as I never was shown how to use a computer or type. I learned by MUCH trial and error how to build a website from scratch. Then there is domain names and hosting and servers and on and on I had to learn. Hundreds and hundreds of hours. (This site is pretty good though, huh?) I never have been much of a reader except for the Bible and I feel like a water spout turned on now. I can’t shut off or write fast enough. I’ve never been a writer or know really how to structure writing so forgive me for probably the thousand errors you may find. (I did figure out spellcheck!) I received this calling early on after getting saved. That was what seems a long time ago and yesterday at the same time. I have had years of running from God. Intentionally trying to piss God off so he would just leave me alone.He said okay do it your way but always told me I would lose everything and when I got to that point I would have no where else to go but back to where I should have been in the first place. I wasn’t apostate, I was asshole. Needless to say, I can say I have never been closer to God then I am right now. And I am finally doing what I am called to do. I want to tell you what God told me clear as day many years ago but am still hesitant and perhaps I’ll say one day. I suppose if it’s true what God said I will see it coming to fruition first. And very quickly. But anyway I am no different then you. Just a man. Just a man. I’m shit. No degrees on the wall. No trophies in the case. All I am is someone that loves God and want to share God. Not learned by man, but what God is doing through my heart. I pray you use satans lemons to make lemonade too.
Mans is declining in leaps and bounds now. What would never be thought of as imaginable fifty or five or even one year ago is commonplace. Sin has accelerated like bullet threw a gun. Like a small rainstorm to a class 5 hurricane. Now to a Born-again Christian this all makes sense. We saw it coming. The Bible told us. And we believed. It’s not a “Maybe one day” or “Not in my lifetime” IT’S HERE AND NOW. The birth pangs have started and the fig tree is starting to sprout. We have now entered into a tribulation period like never has happened on Earth. Millions upon millions upon millions of people will die. Even billions. That is not say multi-millions have not already died in history thinking the end was upon the Earth and suffered unimaginable circumstances. But no where in time have all the keys come in place to unlock the coming of the beast. And very, very soon. The devil has set has finally set his kingdom up enough to unwage all Hell upon it’s inhabitants and assume full control of those that would oppose him. What is happening now is just a small warm up. he has had since the time after the great flood to amass a system that will literally make you not exist unless you bow down to him. No where in time has everything the Bible said would happen come to place all at once, and is now being unfolded before our eyes in warp speed. Expect all out war in the streets. Expect the greatest nation on Earth to be destroyed by God for it’s sin and abandonment of God. Expect earthquakes that will flatten whole large cities if not small countries. Expect not to have food to eat. Expect to lose all your rights and property. Expect to see families hating each other. Neighbors killing each other. Expect love to be replaced by hate in all facets of life. Expect to lose all normalcy or whatever you thought normal was, to be replaced with failing of hearts and suicide as a new world order and great reset is enacted. Expect to be unhealthy as you are bombarded from every direction. Expect the Bible to be outlawed. Pastors who are genuine to be arrested. Expect YOU as a Christian to have to prove your faith. You will probably die as you are looked at as a troublemaker for your “book of hate” and weird ideas. You will need to be placed in a forced camp or your head chopped off. Expect there is no where on Earth to run and hide as the beast system knows everything now. Expect not to be able to buy or sell or fart unless you obey the beast. Expect to lose all your life savings and retirement funds with a click of the mouse. If you have lived your life dependent on the Government for freebies, now you will need to take the mark or no food. No free housing without your bio-metric tattoo and implant or snakebite. Expect stock markets to crumble. Expect your freedom to travel can only be exercised by “conditions.” Expect to be confined to your home and only allowed to leave with permission. All your food and necessity’s will now be delivered to you. Expect to give up your property rights or anything the beast system declares they want or need. Your allowance may only be three days of food at a time. One roll of toilet paper a week. Don’t worry. They will have it all figured out for you. Expect not being able to defend yourself as a worldwide ban is put into place that only Governments may possess guns. You may own a bat or tire iron. Expect to be blacklisted from society for being a conspiracy nut and should be viewed as dangerous. How dare you seek real information and truth? As a Christian your eyes are open to all these things and you could add 1000 more things to this partial list. We have nothing to fear and have Stephen as our example. God will suddenly stand up with you and me when stoned for our testimony. His eyes are always upon us. Thank you Lord Jesus for his testimony. Paul and all the Apostles testimony. And all the Christians before us who freely gave their lives knowing the truth…..
Then Jesus told His disciples, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”
To the world Christians may be looked at as fools and chained and even defeated as the clock winds down. But to us, we are free beyond comprehension and when Jesus comes back to defend those believers still alive at his coming, He will absolutely destroy, decimate, annihilate, demolish, desolate, devastate, extinguish, pulverize, raze, ruin, shatter, smash, tear down, vaporize, waste, wreck, clobber, beat, defeat, crush, conquer, overcome, overmatch, prevail, subdue, thrash, triumph over, wallop, win, whip, blast, blow up, break, cripple, damage, dissolve, mangle, mar, disintegrate, dissolve, mangle, dismantle, gut, unbuild, undo, blot out, eradicate, expunge, exterminate, obliterate, remove, wipe out, and trample satan, all his followers and all evilness on this Earth. That’s what side I’m on and I pray you are to. The Bible says we will judge Angels one day. I honestly think most people forget or don’t comprehend how vast and large God is. If he can think all of creation into existence out of nothing, I’m pretty sure you would want to be on the right team when judgement comes….hmmm……what should I do?…….stay on satans team? And if I’m very lucky I’ll live for a hundred years that go by in a flash. Then die and spend forever in Hell? Or accept the free gift of God and Jesus dying on the cross for your sins and spending eternity with God…. I know….I know… a hard decision, right? It will be you and you alone that stands before God one day….
So what is this thing apostasy?
It is the abandonment or renunciation of religious belief. An act of refusing to continue to follow, obey, or recognize Gods Word. This can be an action by a individual, but even more so with the “church.” An example may be a “Christian” denomination that now hangs a gay pride flag on it’s doors. satan is the very definition of pride and that cast him into Hell. Or let’s a woman pastor. Instead of following Gods Word, they have sold out to the devil and say come on in and live like you want because God loves you just like you are. What does God say? “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God,” Will you trust Gods Word or those that falsify it? They will be next to you howling in Hell forever and you can say why did you guide me wrong all you want, but it’s your fault as you roast together. I suggest you read Deuteronomy and see what God says. A girl not found to be a virgin by her husband was to be stoned to death. Now sluts not only have multiple partners, but joyfully murder their babies and move on to next guy. They proudly display their nude bodies on the internet to prove they are whores striving to be the biggest tramp to make the most money off their sin. If you committed adultery, you were to be stoned to death. If you raped someone you were to be stoned to death….. Another sign is a woman being silent in church as commanded by God has gone to a woman actually becoming a pastor! A woman is commanded to be silent and cover her head and dress modestly. Today? The Bible unanimously points out leadership is first Christ. Then man. Then a woman. It wasn’t that long ago a woman would never think of wearing pants. A dress only. Then the tops got lower and showed cleavage and the bottoms got higher to above the knee in rebellion. Yea, there was even a time when prayer was allowed in schools and part of daily routine. It taught kids good judgement and morals. A student would pray with his teacher, now they want to punch or slap them. Now police have to guard children with guns. Now a teacher will try to tell a child they are the wrong sex and the Board will say it’s okay to have sex with your minor child. The more God is removed from a society, the more evil it becomes. That is why communism works and how behind the scenes they have accomplished the downfall of America. The devil walked right in through the back door. The more man uses his own judgement verses God’s, the faster the Ark starts getting built and I can tell you Noah would be almost finished with the top now. God help us. The biggest attack of satan has always been upon the church of Christ. Jesus said will I find any faith when I return? Apostasy lets worldly thinking in and pulls Gods truths out. Churches are toppling by the day in false teaching. People accept “religion” as long as it doesn’t compress on their sinful lives and possibly make them feel bad. There are “churches” that have pretty much abandoned all correct teachings. Some say Jesus wants you to be a millionaire like he was. Some go as far now to say Evolution was right and God’s didn’t make man in his own mage initially. I guess Adam was a initially a frog or even a glob of poop left by a Tyrannosaur that got heated by the sun, melted into the water, eaten by a fish, sucked into a whirlpool and then squirted back on land looking like a banana only to be eaten this time by a monkey who poops out Adam. Yeah that’s it. Yeah, man penetrated the great firmament and landed on the moon too…… With apostasy Bible truths are so muddied and confusion so abounds that many just walk away from God. There is a entire turn around of possibly getting saved and believing, to wiping your ass with the Bible pages and abandoning all truths of Christianity. A going back to a state of willfully unbelieving, heathenism, or sinful life devoid of God. A total defection or falling away from the Gospel as being true. It is to express complete abandonment of God, Jesus, the teachings in the Bible, and a willful renunciation of any type of faith you may have had at one time. You may have been a lukewarm “religious” person but now have decided being cold or total removal of God from your life is how you will live. In a nutshell. Screw God. I don’t want anything to do with God or the Bible. I like my life just the way it is. I don’t need God. I’m happy in my sin. Jesus has many parables of this type of person. Not everyone who hears Jesus’ words will listen or respond to it because their hearts are in wrong place. A example parable is someone who hears the Word of God. Like a seed it is planted in his heart by God. But some when they hear, satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them and it’s like they never heard the Gospel at all. They got knocked out before they even put on their gloves and got in the ring. They are hardened by their sin. They hear but don’t understand the Word, and Satan plucks the message away, keeping the heart dull and preventing the Word from penetrating. Then there are those when they hear the Word, they immediately receive it with joy. Wow, this Jesus thing sounds good. They feel like they won the lottery but don’t cash in the ticket. They have no root in themselves, and endure only for a while; because when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. The heart is not changed, and when trouble arises, his so called faith quickly disappears. Other seeds are sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of worldly desires for other things enter in their minds and lives and choke the word and a choice is made. Riches, pleasures, and lusts and the things of this world take their time and attention away from God and His Word. The Gospel proves unfruitful for them and they head back into the World as spiritually dead men again not getting saved. Close but no dice. Some seeds will fall on good ground. The good ground portrays the one who hears, understands, and receives the Word. They allow the Word to accomplish its result in their lives. The man represented by the “good ground” is the only one of the four who is truly saved, because salvation’s proof is fruit. The seed is rooted and grows some to the point it becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” So let’s be clear on this. A true born-again Christian could never be an Apostate. You can’t take the Holy spirit and throw him in the garbage like a candy wrapper and walk away. You can certainly quench the Holy spirit in willful sin but you can NEVER remove him entirely if you are saved. The Bible says that is a very dangerous thing to do and will cause sickness and even death if you stay willfully sinning. A Christian that sins is loved by their Father in heaven and will get spanked as this shows love. At one time children were spanked and stopped being bad, now because of no discipline they shoot up schools, Proverbs 22:15, Proverbs 23:13, Proverbs 23:14, Proverbs 29:15, Hebrews 12:7, Proverbs 13:24, Proverbs 19:18, Proverbs 29:17, Proverbs 20:30, Proverbs 17:25, Proverbs 1:26-31, Hebrews 12:5-11. A apostate doesn’t get spanked and God let’s them go. That’s freewill. God does not force you to love Him. If you want to love the world instead that is your choice that one day will have consequences. Forever consequences. Apostasy should not be confused with a Christian that through weakness, carelessness, or temporarily being a dumb ass has fallen into serious sin. There is not a Christian who ever walked this earth that never sinned after being saved. That’s why you have to watch out for these pastors or religions that preach a false gospel that you are saved by works and not grace alone. They are the same ones caught with a homosexual or a prostitute. Or stealing all the church money to buy crack and a vacation house….As Christians we can go off the path and get lost but restoration is always available. King David murdered and committed adultery and was restored. Jesus went from saying: “Blessed art thou, Simon” to “Get thee behind me, Satan!” Peter also said he would die with Jesus then denied the Lord three times and swore like sailor “I don’t know this man.” Man he says. What happened to “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”? Peter saw dead raised, diseases healed, Christ walking on water (he even walked on water till he put himself into the mix), thousands fed, etc. and yet he was the master of boo boo’s. He would have been saying “my bad” ten times a day. Anyway, Peter was forgiven and renewed to fellowship over and over. Thomas also walked with the Lord and was witness to everything he did. But check this cat out: I guess it goes into the Jews requiring a sign to believe but lets face it, you and I would have been good with seeing Jesus walk on water or calming a storm…..Thomas, one of the Twelve Apostles chosen by God was not with the disciples when Jesus appeared to them after His resurrection. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” I believe. Do you? Much of the Bible shows instances of believers messing up. Peter is not a changed man until he is filled with the Holy Spirit. That is the same for any unsaved person. If you say your struggling with any sin it’s because your powerless without the Holy Spirit. Do a study on him and see his total change in a instant on Pentecost. Did he still mess up after receiving the Holy Spirit. Absolutely. Paul wanted to kick his ass one time we know of, probably more times. So because of sinful nature that satan so graciously gave us, all people will always just mess up and sin. Even Christians. It doesn’t mean they abandoned God. It just means they need to get back on track. That we need to mature in our walk. The sooner the better. Sin will not leave you till this mortal body dies and it all started with Adam and Eve. That sinful nature is upon you from the first breath you take after birth till the last breath you take in death.
Adam, the first man sinned by letting a woman go from a being a helper to a leading role. Look at it like a man in today’s world if he is lucky gets a man cave. Of course only if his wife agrees to it……The makeup of the modern marriage has lost it’s proper order. Instead of being a real man and putting his foot down to Biblical truth and saying know your place woman, I’m head of this household, and go cook dinner and watch the kids before I put you over my knee and spank your bottom. Adam’s sin was allowing her to be deceived in her weakness. The minute she got anywhere near that “tree” (satan) he should have grabbed a switch from a tree and lit her ass up. Her sin of not listening to God and man is very prevalent today as a woman tries to be equal to a man in strength and authority and leadership and pretty much everything. “Anything a man can do I can do better” says the lesbian who straps on a fake penis full of the Jezebel spirit. Says the woman who takes testosterone and transgenders into God knows what. Ever hear of women’s rights movement? Adams sin even causes pussy cat men to transform into women because so much power has been given to them by satan now and weak men. Ever hear the expression “we know who wears the pants in that family” Eve, the first woman, couldn’t control herself or her appetite. She probably bitched at Adam saying I want something good to eat instead of fruit all the time. And what have you done for me lately bro? And that tree over there God said to stay away from is the bomb, I gotta check it out. So in her woman’s reasoning verses a mans way of thinking, her feelings and emotions got the best of her, verses common sense. I’ll listen to myself. She was puddy in satan’s hands. Had she said “hang on mr. satan thing, I need to go ask my husband about this first”, the world would be a different place. Her sin is following her own fleshly desires, disobeying God and Adam, and knowing she sinned, and then taking her husband down the tubes with her and then telling God “It’s not my fault, satan made me do it” Yea right. satan wants me to watch pornography, snort a eight ball of coke and rob a bank. But I don’t think so Eve. I’ll listen to God. The weaker vessel didn’t learn from her mistake but instead grew in her rebellion throughout the ages, 1 Timothy 2:14, Ephesians 5:22-23, 1 Peter 3:7, …..If a Christian didn’t mess up he would have to be God himself. We all have the curse of original sin flowing through our veins. Ever see that bumper sticker: “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.” It’s true. Our lives need a constant regeneration of reading the Bible, praying without ceasing, and the infilling of the Holy spirit who is our guide and constant companion. When we mess up (and we will as sure as the sun comes up every morning) we are to get back on the tracks as soon as possible and to repent of whatever sin it may be. God will restore us as he promises. Let go and let God. True born again believers cannot commit apostacy which is a all out rejection of God. Only someone never saved can do that. Christians can screw up real bad, but they don’t stop believing. It is possible for a Christian to know what I’m doing is wrong, but I’ll do it anyway. Willful sinning is playing with dynamite. But it’s possible. You wanna tell me King David didn’t know what he was doing when he saw that woman bathing? She must have had a rocking body and looks. He made the decision to sin. Did he turn from his faith in God? No. Did he have a price to pay? Yes.
Apostasy is decisively turning away from the faith. An Apostate would choose to serve his own desires and blatantly just say I don’t believe in God. My sin outweighs wanting anything to do with what God says or wants. A example would be a homosexual. They know it’s wrong to practice this abomination to God but they do it anyway. They will use every excuse in the book and seek out fellow homosexuals to strengthen their sin and make them feel better, but deep down they always will know they are wrong. Having such feelings is considered temptation and you can get rid of them if you take it to Christ and ask Him earnestly to help you, which He definitely will. But if you act on those feelings and pursue such relationships, then you are willfully sinning. The Bible is clear on homosexuality. It is a sin. It is unnatural affection and goes against Gods plan for mankind. satan has introduced everything in society and mans hearts that contradicts with the Gods divine plan. And homosexuality is one of his many devices. Even if one didn’t believe in the Bible, Romans 1:26-27, we are born with a conscience that guides us from right and wrong. Your conscience tells you not to lie or steal. And it certainly tells you not to use the human anus and poop as a play toys. A lesbian will say they are physically and romantically attracted to other women. It is nothing more than a temptation. Thus they have made a choice to satisfy sinful desires and abandon God. And God says that’s fine. You have free will. But there will be consequences. God will abandon you and harden your heart. Many are under the impression that God created gay people. But this is most definitely not the case. It is a choice. Any sin is a choice. A selfish choice of letting sin being your master and not God. If you study the Bible, you will see that God created a perfect world with two perfect human beings in His image. But when Adam and Eve yielded to temptation, sin entered the world and everyone born from Adam and Eve inherited their fallen nature. This means that we all born into sin. This sin manifests in our lives in many different ways. Homosexuality is one of them. But by the grace of Christ, we can be delivered from all sin. That was the whole purpose of His death on the cross. Depending how adamant you are in continuing to live in sin, you may never be given the chance again for God to draw you near to him and Hell is now your only destination. That is not my opinion. It’s what Gods Word says. I’m trying to save your soul. Yes God loves us, but no where in the Bible does it say that God condones our actions just because He loves us. He loves the sinner but hates the sin. Every second He longs for us to turn away from sin. If He didn’t have a problem with our sin then He wouldn’t have had to send His Son to die for us in the first place. Jesus died to break down the walls of sin and give you conquering power. God does love YOU. But He doesn’t approve of certain lifestyles. To willingly sin when you know it’s wrong brings spiritual death. That means you are in direct opposition to Him. If you stubbornly continue in your sin, there will come a time when God will leave you for good. Apostasy is going from Sodom and Gomorrah given as a example to today men and women in free fall mode in sexual perversions and caring less even knowing Gods wrath will fall upon them, Genesis 13:13, Genesis 18:20:21, Luke 17:28-30, 2 Peter 2:6-9. In today’s world many claim to be Christians or Jesus followers. But are they? People lie so much today it is not far from reality that they might even be lying to themselves. “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” The reality is what seems to be genuine faith may actually be false and fake. That is why the Bible repeatedly warns those who claim to be Christians to beware of apostasy. There are things that show you are saved. What things in your life prove your a Christian? “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” Are you sure what you even believe is right? Maybe your following a wrong gospel or fake religion. You may have good intentions but it is your responsibility to figure that out. “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.”
The Bible contains some strong warnings against apostasy. These warnings have led some to even doubt the doctrine of eternal security. If we are eternally saved and we cannot lose our salvation, why are we warned against falling away from the Lord? Who is being warned? An apostate is someone who abandons their religious faith. It is clear from the Bible that apostates are people who made professions of faith in Jesus Christ but never genuinely received Him as Savior. They were pretend believers. Fakes. Religious. Spiritual. Those who turn away from Christ never really trusted Him to begin with as their Lord and Savior. No conversation of the heart. Those who apostatize are simply demonstrating that they are not true believers and they never were. You’ll see a lot A LOT of that now in these Last Days as things get more “accepting” and the Bible obviously meant this to satisfy their sinful lusts. Maybe your best buddy is a big football fan. You could care less about sports. You expressed that one time and he started hanging out with his other friends except you. So you go to a fan store and buy a shirt, a big foam finger, and put on your game face makeup and show up at his house with third row tickets to next game. You pretended outwardly you were a fan, but inwardly couldn’t wait to get home and change and wait for the damn season to end. I hope your understanding. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. Even in the Apostles day they spoke of fake believers. “They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.” They started out as seeming to be believers but quickly turned away. Kinda of like someone making a new year resolution and going to the gym five days a week and march comes around and you forget you even have a membership. The Bible tells us of a field. There was wheat growing which symbolized true Christians and false wheat called tares. As they begin to grow, at first the difference between the two types of plants is undetectable, As time goes on, the weeds are seen for what they are. In the same way, in any given church today, there are true, Born-again believers side by side with pretenders or fakes. They go through all the motions but have never repented of their sins and accepted Christ by faith. Nor are their any fruits that show proof. To anyone looking outwardly, the true believer and the pretender can even look identical. It is only God who knows the heart of all men. A persons eternal destiny is not a small matter. It is everything. Paul tells us to examine ourselves to see whether we are “in the faith.” In other words, Are we sure we are saved and Holy Spirit filled. Personally, I have had times I started doubting myself but it was my own fault. I was out there way in the jungle. Waaay in the jungle in sin land.
One test of true faith is love for other brothers and sisters in Christ. We are even to love our enemies. “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” Another is our lives. Anyone can claim to be a Christian, but those who are truly saved will bear fruit and there will be obvious proofs. A true Christian will show, through words, actions, and doctrine, that they follow the Lord. Are all Christians the same in their growth? No. Christians bear fruit in varying degrees based on their level of obedience and what spiritual gifts God has given them. But there is definitely change. All Christians bear fruit as the Spirit produces it in them. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” A true Christian will be able to see evidence of their salvation. “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” I know this is gonna sound strange, but creating this website tells me each day, wow God, I really am saved! It’s same with you. There are things that your doing in these Last Days to bring people to the Lord. Apostates will eventually be made known by their fruit. “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” … “Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” Someone is easily spotted as a apostate by their rejection of Christ, acceptance of heresy, and still living a carnal nature. When presented with their sinful behavior they are fine with it and there is no change. Sure, some sins are harder to pull out by the roots, but there are no actions taken to even try. There is no exercise of faith. No true belief. “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” … “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” That’s some scary stuff, no? Those verses talk of fake believers. My friend, I am not God. But I’m asking YOU to truly know your condition. Many who based their Christianity in a religion or in their own version of what a Christian is will be shocked one day. “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” On Judgment Day there will be those that are rejected not because they lost faith but because the Lord never knew them. They never had a relationship with Him. Apostates maybe had some kind of profession of faith at one time or thought they went through the right motions even “going to church” but they never had the heart conversion of true faith. Their mouths said one thing other than what their hearts believed. Apostasy is not the loss of salvation but evidence of past belief that only went as far as being a head believer and never having heart transformation. You came close but no cigar. A dangerous example is joining a religion. A very large religion. You become “religious” through going through all the churches sacraments and rites, rituals, pagan holiday worship and soon your worshiping idols and saints and substitutes for Jesus. Jesus never had parents. He was GOD. His earthly mother and father and brother and sisters would need to be saved just like anyone as they were born in sin. We need Jesus and Jesus alone as our mediator and our only relationship needed. When we are saved we are joined to Him alone. “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples” The Bible tells us clearly ways to know whether we are real or fakes. I honestly don’t think it’s possible to know if you are not saved. Look at your life. What do you see? Look at the church you might be attending. Look at your friends. How do you spend your time? What are you dedicated to? What do you see? It’s impossible to not know if the Holy Spirit resides in you.
“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God”
“Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void. For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you. Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” See how I allow God to talk to you through His Word? If it was up to me I’d just keep myself totally out of this, so I hope my words add and don’t take away. Please Lord in the name of Jesus speak through me. Paul is telling us we need to exercise self control. Be disciplined in the Word. If Paul or us do not keep his body under control, sin is always knocking at the door and we might be subdued. “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister.” God says that what is happening now is a sign of His soon coming. This is what apostatizing is. A falling away. Even to the point of those who do are submitting to lying spirits and false teachers and teachings of demons, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.” That means people are being bullshitted. The world is a giant stage and people are buying into it’s lies. I see that everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Do you? People are blind as hell now and could care less. They will even defend how stupid they really are. How deceived they are. How disillusioned they are. They deny God and accept evil, “It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” As Christians we should never stop fearing God. Sometimes we can forget where we came from when we were saved. We get way to comfortable. As long as we maybe have a roof over our heads or food to eat, etc. things are good, yet open the door and there’s a hurricane right at your door step. That is a sin in itself that you let the world go to Hell as long as it was at a distance, almost like who cares, Gods gonna rapture me out here anyway. Wrong. No such thing. I’ll tell you what, you best open your eyes because someone opened the gate and lions are in your front yard just waiting for you to step outside and even Christians can be fooled into false security and doctrines. We are in the Last Days. When we were saved we repented of our sins. To go back into them, we’ll, what does God say? We are in dangerous territory. To be a believer and just sit back and not help the lost may be worse than the sin God saved you from initially.
“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries” Yes we as Christians are going to be judged one day for the deeds we did after salvation. We should be looking to attain crowns and rewards, yet many a a Christian will be tried by fire and left with nothing. “How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? As Christians we are saved and will receive the promise of being with God eternally. There should never be a inkling of a doubt from from anyone we come in contact with they are seeing Jesus when looking at us. We are not of those who one hundred percent reverse course and in the end sent to hell. The reality is there are some who seemed to be genuine Christians, but only in name. They sure may have resembled being a Christian but just like a cat painted to look like a tiger gets wet and loses it’s colors and becomes black again, so are many apostates. Sooner or later the devil who can appear as a angel of light, shows his black heart. he has to because that’s his nature. Those that were never saved will do the same in these Last Days in extreme. They will demonstrate that they were never genuine Christians They apostatized by rejecting the truth and the Son of God himself. Refused Gods Word and it’s truths. THEY TOOK THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILLINGLY. God uses warnings to exhort genuine Christians to persevere in the faith. To stay in the race and win. May we always put God first in our lives. Christians can neither totally nor finally fall away from the faith one day, but we will certainly continue in the faith to the end and be eternally saved. Does the Bible warn us that in the Last Days we can be fooled? Yes. But that is why we are to put on the full armor of God. Tell satan to take a leap out of your life, James 4:7. Greater in me is stronger than him of this earth, 1 John 4:4. If you don’t know 100% your standing before God, today is the day to figure that out. American is in free fall mode. Once you lose a child from God and infiltrate their minds one hundred percent with the devil, a nation will fall. I would say that is now achieved. Unless you are blind and very simple you have to have seen Christianity slide into various kinds of apostasy in just the last couple of decades. Months. If you are awake it has been breathtaking and beyond belief. In only a VERY short time we have witnessed the greatest change in the church’s decline in it’s entire history. The Bible forewarned what is happening now in the Last Days, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Matthew 15:8, Romans 1:18-32, Romans 10, Romans 16:17-18, Titus 1:16, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 2 Corinthians 11:1-15, 2 Corinthians 13:5, Galatians 1:6-9, Galatians 5:1-12, Philippians 3:2, Philippians 3:18-19, Colossians 2:4-23, 1 Timothy 1:3-7, 1 Timothy 4:1-3, 1 Timothy 6:3-5, 2 Timothy 2:11-26, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Timothy 4:15, Titus 1:10-16, Hebrews 2:1-4, Hebrews 3:7-13, Hebrews 4:12-13, Hebrews 5:12-14, Hebrews 6:12, Hebrews 10:26-31, Hebrews 12:14-17, 1 Peter 3:19-20, 2 Peter 2:1-22, 2 Peter 3:3-10, 1 John 2:4, 1 John 2:9, 1 John 2:18-23, 1 John 3:4-12, 1 John 4:1-6, 2 John 9, Jude 1:4, Jude 3:23, John 14:23-24, Revelation 22:15, It cannot be denied. Man will increase in sin and decrease in God. We are witnessing God being thrown in the garbage can and satanists taking over everything. EVERYTHING. Where God once controlled the mind and hearts, now satan does and people listen to him with no restraint. Wear a mask. Yes master. Take my mark. Yes master. Listen to fake media. Yes master. Apostasy is real and no where in time will you witness God being left behind as the devil makes his final stand. Apostasy’s message is throughout the Bible and its evil effects provide the main message of such books as Galatians, 2 Thessalonians, Hebrews, and Revelation. Further, Paul warned the Ephesians elders of apostasy during his final meeting with them after spending three years teaching them. It took a while, but America has fallen……. Jesus, come soon Lord and kick the living crap out of satan and his followers. From your throne show your signs Lord and shake the west coast with devastating earthquakes and take out these apostates just like you did in Sodom and Gomorrah. I love you Lord. I pray Lord for your power and strength. Lord you are the perfect lamb of God sacrificed by your love. May I Lord and those that truly believe be counted worthy of You. I love you Lord. I pray for those that thought or acted like Christians are awakened before it’s to late. I pray for those who think God has changed and become more acceptable in sin. For those that try to change your Word Lord into meaning something else or into what fits their sinful desires…May all Praise, Honor, and Glory go to you Father and your Son forever.
