Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin.
– Mark 3:28-29
First of all, I don’t think it’s called ‘The Book of Life‘ for nothing, and that is indeed where your name must be recorded to enjoy the heavenly kingdom which God has prepared for those who love Him.
So what is the ‘unforgivable sin?’
As we just read in Scripture, it has to do with the Holy Ghost or ‘Holy Spirit.’ During Mass, we refer to the Holy Spirit as ‘the Lord, the giver of life.’
Taking all that into account, and cutting quickly to the chase, I now believe (in my own opinion) that the sin against the Holy Spirit may very well be a sin against the sanctity of human life at its very beginning.
Note well that I am not referring to any repentant, post-abortive woman. Heaven knows, they suffer very much. I believe this has more to do (possibly) with those who make the abortion agenda a cornerstone of their lives.
“Jesus answered: Thou shouldst not have any power against me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered me to thee, hath the greater sin.”
Jesus was speaking to a ruler there. He also spoke about those who ‘handed Him over’ to be killed. In our time, who hands babies over to be killed by the abortion industry? I believe that would be voters, and I’ve long held the belief that liberalism is spiritual disorder. If you are a person of faith, a conversation with a liberal can be very unsettling now. There is an anger, a vulgarity and a spiritual blindness which is palpable. Really, it’s almost like some liberals are actually possessed.
Finally, it’s important to point out that many believe the ‘sin against the Holy Spirit’ is ultimately the rejection of God Himself. However, the Holy Spirit has a specific place in the Trinity and He apparently primarily deals with the issue of ‘giving life.’
Much to ponder………….
“But Yeshua, turning to them, said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For indeed the days are coming in which they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore, and the breasts which never nursed!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, “fall on us!” and to the hills, “cover us!” For if they do these things in the green wood, what will be done in the dry?” Luke 23:28-31
Here’s an interesting article on Jesus final prophecy noted in that Scriptural passage.
On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.
– Zechariah 12:3
That’s chapter 12 verse 3 of the Book of Zechariah. I suppose the case can be made that the above Scripture refers to the time when nations battle against Jerusalem. However, it cannot be denied that whenever our leaders concerned themselves with ‘peace’ in the Middle East we’ve had many, many problems in the United States which usually manifest in ‘natural’ disasters.
The last time Jared Kushner dabbled in the peace process was right before Hurricane Harvey.
On Sunday, 12/3, Jared Kushner will again meet to discuss Mideast peace prospects, and it’s an interesting numerical coincidence with the above noted Scripture.
Now, if President Trump announces an embassy move to Jerusalem, that may be a blessing for the United States, however, if history is any prophetic indicator, achieving ‘peace’ appears to be hands off.
I don’t think that job is meant for a mere man.
I’m hearing some pretty amazing claims regarding the recent UN resolution against Israel from no less than Jay Sekulow.
Although most of us are under the impression the resolution can easily be reversed by Donald Trump, Sekulow claims the agreement is legally binding and the only way to void it would be to defund or dissolve the UN in effect making all threats impossible to enforce.
Among other sites, the Western Wall and Church of the Holy Sepulchre would come under HAMAS control.
This is abominable, apocalyptic stuff, folks. There are 55 references in Scripture where God specifically gives the land to the Jews, or reinforces those same wishes about the region.
According to another report, no less than 70 nations are going to meet in terror scarred France on January 15, 2017 to decide Israel’s future. Actually, they may be deciding their own.
I’ve always maintained that the United States would rue the day it let BHO continue to unleash chaos across this planet, but nevertheless….it is written, and Scripture WILL be fulfilled.
That said, whenever the U.S. betrays Israel, disaster soon follows –
Biblical proof of my above assertions –
And the Lord said to Abram: Go forth out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and out of thy father’ s house, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and magnify thy name, and thou shalt be blessed. I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee, and IN THEE shall all the kindred of the earth be blessed – Genesis 12:1-3
I will gather together all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Josaphat: and I will plead with them there for my people, and for my inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and have parted my land. – Joel 3:2
And the Lord shall roar out of Sion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem: and the heavens and the earth shall be moved, and the Lord shall be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Sion my holy mountain: and Jerusalem shall be holy and strangers shall pass through it no more. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweetness, and the hills shall flow with milk: and waters shall flow through all the rivers of Juda: and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the torrent of thorns. Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom a wilderness destroyed: because they have done unjustly against the children of Juda, and have shed innocent blood in their land. And Judea shall be inhabited for ever, and Jerusalem to generation and generation. – Joel 3:11-20
Are you exactly like God?
Well, the devil thought he was and is even now trying to place himself above God.
But hey….Scripture says I’m made in the image of God…um…right?
Actually, the translation from the original Greek and Hebrew reads like this –
And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.
Genesis 1L27 (Douay Rheims version)
Did you catch it? The word ‘to’ twice.
Many Christians say they are made in the image and likeness of God, and sometimes I sense a bit of arrogance involved with this concept. Sure, mankind is special, but we’re not to be arrogant about it at all.
They key here, IMHO is the differing prepositions used. We know that God is love – you only have to look at Christ on the cross to realize this, plus we have the literal statement which is made in Scripture.
Now read the Douay Rheims translation again – God created man to his own image
So, let’s get a little algebraic now. If God is love, and man was created to God’s image, than man was created to LOVE.
That’s why it’s almost like getting a glimpse of heaven and God when someone is kind to another person, or when any good deed, offered out of love, is done for another.
Jesus said without love we are like clanging gongs and have nothing (I’m paraphrasing, but I’m sure you’ll recall the passages in Scripture).
Christian arrogance….beware of it folks.
I’m seeing and hearing more and more of it, and it is not at all Christlike. Pride is a characteristic of satan.
Whenever I experience it I immediately recall this Scriptural passage –
And to some who trusted in themselves as just, and despised others, he spoke also this parable: Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather that the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
Please, oh please don’t read that as a license to sin as many Christians do! Jesus said to ‘be perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect.’ That calls us to not to wallow in sin.
And always, always the Final Judgment passage exposes the concept of love as being the key to heaven –
Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me. Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee? Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee? And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.
Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee? Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting.
The storm will also focus on Washington on the anniversary of Roe v Wade and follows the fed decision to fund Planned Parenthood yet again, even though the abortion mill has been exposed for atrocities against the unborn.
Barry’s motorcade slips, and skids into curbs before storm bears down on Washington –
Jonas is a multifaceted, monster storm –
And there are many interesting meanings for the name Jonas –
Also interesting is the fact that the name Jonas is very popular in areas that are now being invaded by islamists.
Additionally, the blame for the expansion of the potential worldwide caliphate can be traced directly back to the door of the White House, IMHO.
Not even a hiccup after the next astounding statement made by the current ‘commander-in-chief,’ not to mention the general in the video who, unnaturally, doesn’t blink at all during a very extended period of time. Of course, this could bring up an entirely different topic…but I digress.
IMHO, you don’t say something like this unless it’s true –
Oh, but Angela Merkel is allowing Islamists to enter her country, right? Since her recklessness is totally out of character and an endangerment to her own country, why would she do it??? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Barry was directly involved in tapping her phone?
Now, the reason Barry appointed so many ‘czars’ when he first took office becomes quite apparent due to the fact that they only report to him and are not subject to congressional oversight.
That said, many people in Washington have inexplicably caved to this lawless Chicago thug. And you can’t convince me that blackmail and intimidation weren’t a part of it.
It sure looks that way.
Check out this excerpt of an article by Ted Shoebat –
France assisted greatly the Islamic terrorists in Syria. France helped create the jihadist monster in Syria; the monster that has slaughtered tens of thousands, and now they are complaining that the terrorists they helped are doing to them what they helped them do to Syria? They are sad now that some people in their country were killed by the very same groups they helped, to do that which they are now doing to their own countrymen? This is the epitome of hypocrisy. I really don’t know why we have made a trend of such an event.In 2013, the socialist leader of France, Francois Hollande, declared was going to be delivering weapons to the Islamic terrorist organization, the Free Syrian Army, who was slaughtering people years before ISIS even existed. In the statement Hollande said:“On delivering weapons we have always said that we want to control these supplies so that they do indeed go to the Free Syrian Army … because they represent the Syrian National Coalition that we recognize as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people and today they are caught between a hammer and an anvil. The hammer is the air strikes and actions of the Syrian regime and the anvil is radical Islam.”The US was not the biggest supporter of the rebels in Syria, it was the French. The French were backing all of this darkness in Syria, providing weapons and money to help the terrorists fight Assad and his loyalist forces, in order to destroy the Assad dynasty. What would be the result of getting rid of Assad? Death, destruction, chaos; the slaughter of countless people, the massacre of Christians. Does France care? Do the French liberals care how many people die as a result of their support of this rebellion? No. They couldn’t give a fig. The French government is a terrorist, and yet they are shocked and disturbed when the terrorists they help turns against them?
This may be hard to hear…but I also would suggest that it’s not a great idea to go to a concert where the lead singer of the band calls himself ‘the devil.’ The above photo is actually that of concertgoers, many of whom are making the devil horn sign before the event began.
The ‘eagles of Death Metal’ also released a very vulgar and sacrilegeous ‘documentary’ recently. It’s probably blasphemous also, but I could only watch so much of it on YouTube. That said, I hope they’ve since reassessed their path.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For the things that are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of. But all things that are reproved, are made manifest by the light; for all that is made manifest is light. Wherefore he saith: Rise thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead: and Christ shall enlighten thee.
