2016: The Year of the Reaper?

 

2016George Michael, Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder and Fidel Castro are just some of the notable figures that have died during 2016 causing people to refer to this year as “The Year of the Reaper.” Social media is ablaze with people desperately pleading that “2016” not take any more of their favorite celebrities. At the same time, many people are losing close family  members and friends which is adding to the feelings of despair and hopelessness.  What do the scriptures say about death? How should we deal with losing people we love and how do we heal?

Ecclesiastes 1:4  One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

Psalms 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

2 Samuel 2:6 The Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. 

The previous scriptures show us that every generation has its time and the Lord is in control of the passing of one generation and the birth of the new one. As our friends and family get older, they too must pass on from this life. Psalms 90:10 explains how the average life span is 70 years and if people live longer, the health of those individuals will decline. Two thousand sixteen does not have the power of death neither the “reaper.” It is the Lord working now as he has always worked throughout time. As people age, the previous generation dies. With so many people inevitably and continually dying, how are we supposed to cope with losing our loved ones?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2  To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

Isaiah 57:1-2  The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.  He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

Ecclesiastes 7:1-3 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth. It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

Although the scriptures show us that the day of one’s death is better than the day of one’s birth, it still hurts when our loved ones die. With all the evil happening in the world, we should take comfort in those that have passed on are spared from the present day wickedness and are at rest. At the same time, we are not to fall into the ideology of this world that tells you to “be strong for your family.” “Don’t cry.” These are false and dangerous messages that are sent to our loved ones when someone close to them dies. Ecclesiastes 7:1-3 explains how we are healed through sadness. Grieving is part of the process of dying and if you don’t express your grief, it is unhealthy for you and hinders you from healing.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

Death entered into this world because we broke the commandments and the key to changing this cycle is repentance in Christ. While we live, we have the opportunity to right the wrongs by learning the scriptures, repenting in Christ and teaching others to do the same through our example.  Once we die, the opportunity to repent and improve our lives is lost. We can not help our loved ones, friends and celebrities that have passed on but we can help those that are alive through repentance and our example.

Revelation 21:3-4  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

1 Corinthians 15:21-26  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

Eventually, death will be conquered but until then, we MUST live in righteousness. We pray that these scriptures benefit anyone suffering loss or grief at this time or in the future. Peace.

The Prison System in Black and White!

It has never been a secret that African Americans and other minorities of color are disproportionately targeted by the Criminal Justice System of the United States. It is a well documented fact that the practice of mass incarceration and lengthy prison sentences for blacks can be traced back to the abolition of slavery. Documentaries such as “13th” and “Slavery by Another Name” attempt to expose the origins of the racist and systematic targeting of blacks by an institution that can best be described as modern day slavery.

But even with countless studies, documentaries, special focus groups and statistics, there is still another source of information which MOST accurately addresses this dilemma, THE HOLY BIBLE!

new-jim-crow

 

Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.

The prophet Isaiah tells us that the biblical children of God would be robbed of all things: land, houses, language, religion, even their identity. He also bleakly prophesied that they would be hid in prison houses with none to save or restore them.

 

 

 

 

Even Jesus Christ himself explained to the apostles that the rulers of this world care nothing for the children of strangers and would exploit them as they saw fit.

Matthew 17:25-27 And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? 26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

We can see in the teachings of Christ that we, as so-called minorities of color in the United States and scattered throughout the world are the strangers in many if not all of the countries that we now inhabit. As children of strangers we are subject to payments, punishments and abuses that the natural children are spared from. This is the reason why Whites in America are often given much lighter and more lenient sentences for identical crimes committed by their Black counterparts.

But there is yet another reason for this gross disparity in the representation of so-called Black and Brown people in the prison system and it will be a truth that only few can grasp.

Amos 3:1-3 Hear this word that the Lord hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

The Heavenly Father gave his Laws, Statutes, and Commandments to the Israelites, our biblical forefathers. With this great gift came an incredible responsibility to be the lights of the word and ambassadors of Christ on planet Earth. When we perverted the Heavenly Father’s ways in favor of fornication, idolatry and all manner of evil, we quickly fell from grace. As the children of the promise and those who are under the covenant of God, the prophet Amos warns “You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” Despite the fact that we have become less than any other nation on the planet, we are still the biblical children of God. And as such, we will be shown no mercy when we transgress his commandments. It is true that so-called minorities of color face racism, classism and true hated by our oppressors in many countries throughout the world. But the word of God prevails above all.

Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

As children of the Most High God we must commit ourselves to repentance and good works with the hope of receiving mercy in a merciless society.

God’s Diary

DISCLAIMER: THE BELOW VIDEO CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL REFERENCES, AS A CHURCH WE DO NOT CONDONE OR ENDORSE THE MESSAGE CONTAINED IN THIS VIDEO BUT INSTEAD USE IT AS A TEACHING TOOL TO SHOW THE BLATAND AND VILE DISREGARD SOME HAVE FOR THE WORDS OF THE HOLY BIBLE!

The website “collegehumor.com” has always been known to push the envelope when it comes to their particularly brash sense of humor and insensitive antics. And when it comes to their satirical attacks it is clear that no topic is off limits and nothing is sacred. In an older sketch that has resurfaced on social media we see a motley crew of actors who are portraying themselves as “God” and a host of angels. The angels have found “God’s” secret diary which is clearly the Holy Bible and begin to critique him for bigotry, hypocrisy and a nonsensical writing style.
Among the various commandments that they mock are laws concerning diet, sexual conduct and the entire life of our Lord Jesus the Christ.

Leviticus 11:9-10 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. 10 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:

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

At one point the life of Jesus is described as a novel about a fictional hero who uses his superpowers to save others but cannot use them to save himself. Not surprisingly, this was the same insult hurled at the dying Christ as he sacrificed himself on the cross for the sins of the nation of Israel.

Matthew 27:41-42 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, 42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Proverbs 14:9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

The lives of the Holy Men of God were often the subject of mockery, ridicule and scorn throughout the ages and these days and times are no different but the scriptures ring true and in the end everyone must give account for their words and wicked deeds.

Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: 21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, 22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

The Election of Donald Trump

The election of Donald Trump to be the next U.S. president has caused a lot of different protests all across the country and some even overseas. Many people are upset because they wanted to see Hillary Clinton win and think that she would be a better president than Donald Trump. Some of the arguments are that Donald Trump is racist, hates the LGBT community and immigrants, amongst other things. Some people are also upset about his proposed policies that he said he would implement once he becomes president.

But would Hillary Clinton be any different? Or would she be serving her own self -interest and those that donated the most money to her campaign and not care about the little guy.

Politics was created to divide people and it’s done a brilliant job doing just that.

No matter who gets to be president, unless you can see through that person’s actions that they’re serving the Most High God and Christ, they are all corrupt and filthy and we should not put our faith or hope in them.

The Most High God is the one who dictates who’s going to be our rulers and he told us that he’s going to set up the lowest of the low to be our rulers.

Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

The definition of basest is having the least morals or being of the lowest class.

Knowing this, why would anyone think that if Hillary Clinton got elected, things would be any better? Because she’s just as corrupt as any other politician!

People have to stop putting their faith and trust in men and trust in the living God and his son Jesus Christ who will protect us if we’re doing his commandments.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

When we do things like cry

girl-crying

and worry because Hillary Clinton didn’t get elected, we’re trusting in man and making flesh our arm; meaning that we’re relying on a corrupted person to protect us.

Psalm 146:3-4 Put not your trust in princes [today presidents, prime ministers, etc], nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

These people are going to die like everyone else, only the Most High God and his son lives forever.

When you’ve truly repented and are living right in the eyes of God, the last thing that you’re going to worry about is who gets to be the next president because you know that they’re all corrupt and filthy people who does not have our best interest at heart.

Psalm 146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:

Instead of protesting, what we should be doing is praying that there is peace wherever we’re living, so that we can truly serve the Lord without any distractions.

 1 Timothy 2:1-3 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

As we’ve mentioned several times before on our website and different articles, the people that were brought here through slavery are the Israelites that the bible speaks about and we’ve had a history of slavery throughout many generations. The Lord has told us what we should do in these particular circumstances.

Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

When you read throughout the bible there are several instances where different rulers caused straight havoc to the people and you don’t read about people protesting to put someone else in power, because they understood that these rulers are all corrupt and have their own interest at heart.

Most of our people despise the word of God and would much rather continue protesting, being angry and emotional and look to a man for help.

Isaiah 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

If that’s your choice to be that way, no one can force you to be otherwise.

Revelation 22:11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

But for those who were caught up in their emotions and now realize that the word of the Lord is right, you have to follow Christ example to really see the world and its leaders for what they truly are and at that point you will learn not to worry about who gets elected.

Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Thanks for What?

slave_ship

Ghana, West Africa 1837, five massive British ships arrive on the coast in the midst of a dark night prepared to take a precious commodity from the port city of Accra to the Americas. The air that night was humid and the tension was so thick you could feel it. Several men jump off the ships carrying the payment for their “merchandise.” A transaction is made between the Ghanaian tribesmen and the British sailors as they gather together hundreds of men, women and children in chains. One by one hundreds of them were loaded on the ships. Some were crying while others screamed for their dear lives clutching the ground as they were dragged away from the land where they had lived. Others walked silently with faces as still as stone statues that showed they understood exactly why this was happening. They understood it was a curse.

After all of the captives were loaded, the doors of the ships were shut tight like the doors on Noah’s ark.  There was no escaping except for death and many of the slaves were “blessed” with an illness that granted them that peace.  After a long journey over the ocean, the ships finally arrived in the Americas. When the British captors and their “cargo” finally reached the American colonies, the British sailors thanked the Lord for granting them safe passage and called it Thanking the Lord Day. They declared that this day should be celebrated on the third Thursday of February. Imagine if you would that this was true and the day is still celebrated  in the United States today. Understanding its roots, would you celebrate it? Many would say no without giving it a second thought, yet the same people are celebrating the genocide and destruction of the Native Americans today known as Thanksgiving.

As followers of Christ, should we celebrate Thanksgiving. If you believe the traditional story that has been told about this day, it ultimately involves murder, deceit and theft. The commandments speak against all three of these sins.

indianmassacre

Matthew 19:16-18  And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  (17)  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  (18)  He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness…

Proverbs 6:16-17  These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  (17)  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood

Deuteronomy 19:14  Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

Deuteronomy 27:17  Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen.

The Native Americans were lied to, deceived, murdered and had their land stolen. The previous scriptures show that those acts were wrong. How can followers of Christ sit down in good conscience and say this is a day to thank God?

“The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
—John Adams
There is another origin of Thanksgiving that should cause “Christians” to cringe. Many Christians falsely believe that the United States was founded on true Biblical values and therefore the holidays that it established were righteous. The truth is the Thanksgiving feast was celebrated by the pilgrims before they arrived in the Americas but it was called Thesmophoria. The celebration was an idolatrous harvest festival created to honor the Greek god Demeter and the Roman goddess Ceres. There were several wicked and sexual practices affiliated with the festival that shows the feast does not honor the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
demeterceres2
Exodus 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Psalms 96:5  For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
1 Corinthians 10:14  Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
The scriptures we just read explains how the Lord feels about idolatry. If we are going to be the servants of the Lord, then we must stop this sin and not celebrate the customs of the nations. Leviticus 23:1-2 explains the feasts of the Lord. If Thanksgiving is not mentioned in the Bible and is not of the Lord, what are its origins? Could it be Satan?  The following scripture is the answer!
1 Corinthians 10:20-21  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.  (21)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Check out these two shows about the evils of Thanksgiving!

Jaden Smith “Sorcerer Supreme”.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe recently added a new caped hero to the big screen; Doctor Strange aka “The Sorcerer Supreme”. While the topic of sorcery and magic is very common in cinema as it relates to various works of fantasy and fiction, for young Jaden Smith it represents something far more tangible. After attending the movie and seeing Doctor Strange, “The Sorcerer Supreme” in action, young Jaden believes he has found his calling in the mystic arts. Some may remember that he once claimed to have been a vampire in his adolescent years but he has apparently graduated to new degrees of insanity with the following tweet earlier this week.

jaden-strange

Many have seen these comments as more absurdity from a young man who clearly took a work of fiction way too seriously. But for those of us who believe and know the truth of the Holy Bible, a far more disturbing truth is revealed.

Exodus 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

Throughout the scriptures there are numerous references and prohibitions against witchcraft, sorcery and the mystic arts in general. So much so that even the study and inquiry concerning them was forbidden as recorded in the book of Acts Chapter 19.

Acts 19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

These prohibitions were not written to protect against Hollywood special effects and a make believe doctrine, but against a true and tangible Satanic power at work in this world.

Jeremiah 4:22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

The true tragedy of this story is that young Jaden Smith would be so willing to devote his life to the so-called mystic arts after seeing a movie but continue to openly reject Jesus Christ who’s mighty works are seen daily. But as the prophet Jeremiah accurately foretold, the children of God are wise to do evil but have no knowledge of good.

For those who may be practicing or curious about magic and the mystic arts, we urge you to take heed to the warning of the prophet Isaiah below and repent of your wicked works.

Isaiah 47:11 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. 12 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. 13 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.

Young and Carefree

Most young people today have a carefree life where they live in the moment, not thinking of the consequences of the things that they’re doing. Like most of us know, when you’re young you think that you’re invincible and that you should have all the fun you can before you get old. Some of those fun things include, experimenting with different drugs and most notably having all the sex you can before deciding to settle down.

With the advent of the media pushing these things on TV and in different music, the problem only worsens.

The scriptures give specific warning to young people on this matter.

Ecclesiastes 11:9-10 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.

The scripture is telling us that all the things that we do will be brought in to judgment because the purpose for all of our lives, both young and old, is to have respect for God and his son and keep their commandments.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

For a young man or woman in today’s world, to be a virgin, it’s almost like committing sacrilege because almost everyone is “sowing their oats.” They’re sleeping with whomever and whenever and having lots of fun doing that. When the Lord created us, he did not intend for us to be that way. He wants a man to leave his parents house and marry a woman to raise a family and so it should be throughout all generations and doing the opposite is considered to be fornication.

Mark 10:6-8 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. [Christ didn’t say anything here about sleeping with different people until you find the right one.]

1 Timothy 5:14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, [not opening up their legs to every man that comes their way like you see these young girls doing today] bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.

1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

None of us know when we’re going to die and if you are a person whose young and carefree and just living your life without any regards to God’s commandments, you should consider your ways and repent.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

The Lord will forgive you if you stop from committing these acts and turn your life around.

You may ask how to do that?

Psalm 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

We also encourage you to watch the following video below on how to go about serving God.

EpiPen Extortion

Severe allergic reactions  to various allergens such as peanuts, bee stings and soy are on the rise. It is a life threatening health risk known as anaphylaxis and one in thirteen children are at risk. In the past, people would die if they could not get to a hospital in sufficient time. That all changed in 1987 when a life saving invention called the EpiPen was introduced to the general public.

The EpiPen was invented by Sheldon Kaplan for the U.S. Department of Defense in 1973. Originally it was created to quickly inject an antidote for nerve gas. Eventually, the invention arrived in the public’s hands as the life-saving self-injectable dose of epinephrine.

This medical miracle slows down the allergic reaction and provides the critical time needed to save the child’s life. Children with severe allergies are required to keep an EpiPen with them at all times and some are even required to leave one with the school nurse. Teachers in public schools receive mandatory training on when and  how to use an EpiPen. For children with these severe allergic reactions, an EpiPen is a life saving necessity.

In 2007, Mylan Pharmeceutical purchased the patent for the EpiPen.  Soon after they began to rapidly raise the price of this life saving medical tool. In fact, between 2007 and 2015 there was a 500% price increase. Parents that used to pay less than $150.00 dollars for two EpiPens are now required to pay over $600.00 dollars for the same medicine. During the same time as these price hikes, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch salary went from $2,453,456 to $18,931,068. That is a 671% increase in her salary.

Parents that need the EpiPen to potentially save their child’s life now have to make some serious decisions as to how they are going to pay for the medicine.  Since Mylan industry owns the patent, there is no generic version of an EpiPen to date. Parents either have to pay the price or take their chances. This wicked and evil tactic of the Mylan Pharmaceuticals and others like them amounts to extortion.
 epipenpriceincrease
Extortion
  1. an act or instance of extorting.
  2. Law. the crime of obtaining money or some other thing of value by the abuse of one’s office or authority.
  3. oppressive or illegal exaction, as of excessive price or interest: the extortions of usurers.

 

 

Ezekiel 22:12-14  In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD.    Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at thy dishonest gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee.    Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it.

The Most High punished the Children of Israel for dealing in usury, greed, extortion and dishonest gain. Every element of what Mylan Pharmaceuticals has done amounts to these sins. They increased the price of the drug by an exorbitant amount, the CEO greedily gained a huge salary increase at the risk of children’s lives and parents were forced to pay the bill if they want to prevent a tragedy.  

Leviticus 19:35-36  Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.  Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

1 Timothy 6:9-10  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

The Most High warns us in the scriptures to deal justly with weights and measures which equates to us dealing righteously in business. There is room to make a profit but we are not to become greedy. People’s love for money is why these things occur in the world. When your wealth becomes more important than anything, you will risk children’s lives to gain more and more money. There is a judgment for extortioners and covetous people but if they repent, there is hope.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

A 19 year old man has incestuous relationship with mother to save her from abusive men

As the days on this Earth prolong, you can see more evidence of a lack of understanding and/or plain disregard of the scriptures. Recently, a 19 year old New Mexico man, Caleb Peterson, and his mother, Monica Mares, were charged with incest. Caleb Peterson claims that he got involved with  his 36 year old  mother romantically and sexually to prevent her from getting into relationships with abusive men so she would be able to care for the household and his younger siblings.

 The young man was given up for adoption by his mother when he was an infant. They were recently reacquainted, he moved in and sometime soon after the relationship began. Peterson was not ashamed and wants people to understand the nature of the relationship but some news sources report that the mother denies the allegations. The young man charged with incest would like to raise awareness about “genetic sexual attraction relationships,” according to the Daily Mail website.

In New Mexico, the crime of incest is punishable by up to 3 years  in prison and a $5,000 fine. What is incest?
New Mexico State Law 30-10-3. Incest.
Incest consists of knowingly intermarrying or having sexual intercourse with persons within the following degrees of consanguinity: parents and children including grandparents and grandchildren of every degree, brothers and sisters of the half as well as of the whole blood, uncles and nieces, aunts and nephews.
Whoever commits incest is guilty of a third degree felony.
Leviticus 18:6-7 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.  The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
1 Corinthians 5:1-2  It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.  And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
  
Last week we shared an article about bestiality and laws against it in the United States. Here is another rare occasion where the laws of the land and the Bible agree to a certain point. New Mexico defines incest as sexual relationships or marriage with varying degrees of  consanguinity. Consanguinity means kinship. Leviticus chapter 18 defines incest as having sex with someone that is near of kin. The scripture and law show that incest is having sex with someone that is a close relative. As followers of the Heavenly Father, we are not to marry or have romantic or  sexual relationships with our relatives; this includes mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, stepchildren and their husbands or wives. The scriptures consider it fornication which is a sin. Even in the New Testament, Paul had to warn the church in Corinth that it was an act of fornication that should be judged accordingly.
Leviticus 20:22-23 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.  And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
The people of this Earth that do not follow the commandments of the Most High commit incest and feel as if they are doing nothing wrong. The Lord hates this sin and says that he abhors or has strong hatred for those that commit such wicked acts. It does not matter how people try to justify themselves. We must repent and keep the commandments if our lifestyle, pleasure or desire go against the laws of the Bible.
Romans 6:12-13  Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.  Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.  
“Genetic sexual attraction relationships” is incest. Caleb Peterson must realize that his mother will be protected from abusive men by repenting, keeping the commandments and remaining single until the Lord blesses her with a man of the Lord but incest will never be the answer!
1 Peter 3:12-13  For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.  And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

Man Arrested for Having Sex with a Goat

article-goat-1-0804

A 65 years old Georgia man from Paulding County was caught having sex with one of his white female goats. A woman saw the act of fornication from her window, reported it to the police and the man was arrested and charged with bestiality. The scriptures and Georgia have clear laws about this sin.

O.C.G.A. 16-6-6 (2010)  16-6-6. Bestiality
(a) A person commits the offense of bestiality when he performs or submits to any sexual act with an animal involving the sex organs of the one and the mouth, anus, penis, or vagina of the other
(b) A person convicted of the offense of bestiality shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than five years.

Leviticus 18:1-5  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  (2)  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.  (3)  After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.  (4)  Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.  (5)  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Leviticus 20:15-16 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. (16) And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Under the new covenant in Christ, there is not a death squad that is rounding up and killing people that commit this sin and others that are worthy of death. People have the opportunity to repent by acknowledging their wrongdoing, stop committing the sin and not returning to it. If they do not repent, there will be a final judgment and I Corinthians 6:9-10 explain what it is.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (11) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

The judgment is if you continue with your lust, you will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. This means you will be put to death when Christ returns. Bestiality, sex with animals, is a sin and men and women MUST repent if they are guilty of such acts. Even among those that followed Christ in the past, there were fornicators of all types but they repented, changed and served the Lord. We pray that many of you do the same and inherit the kingdom.
