MARRIAGE MUSINGS

Hello again folks! Any wedding is usually a happy and blessed occasion. I am attending one soon and I am looking forward to the day. But despite all the hype and wall-to-wall coverage on the mass media; today should be a day when [for a change!] there is some blanket good news being broadcast to the masses. A couple of thoughts came to me this morning when I came to. The first was this familiar portion of the Word:

"For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." [Matthew 24:38-39]

It struck me that amidst the tension in the Middle East; the storms battering the US mid-west; the Japanese and New Zealand earthquake carnage et al - people today are still out there celebrating the Royal Wedding [and quite rightly if they so choose] - despite everything - echoing the above words of Jesus from the Olivet Discourse a la Matthew chapters 24 and 25.

The other thing that came to mind when I heard someone on the TV state that it is expected that two [2] billion folks are expected to tune in today to watch the ceremony was this . Now that kind of viewing figure is not far off from a third of the worlds population. In the Book of Revelation we read these inspired words:

"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them ... And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves." [Revelation 11:7;9]

Without being accused of being morbid et al ... I thought it of note that this yet-to-occur event will most likely acquire viewing statistics to rival or beat those for the big event today. I have no idea whether this will speak to anyone specifically; but I thought that these musings of mine might invite your perusal.

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 29-Apr-2011

THE PASSING OF DAVID WILKERSON

Hello again folks! It is indeed, on one level, so very sad to have heard earlier today that Pastor David Wilkerson has died at the age of 79 in a road traffic accident in east Texas; but for True believers - tragic as this news is - on the other hand it is a release for him and it was the time to meet His Saviour at his appointed time:


David Wilkerson is a hero to many, many True Christians. Someone who was not afraid to do the difficult things called for in the Christian walk that include putting aside the home comforts of ones personal and family life and replacing it with a fierce loyalty to His Lord and the work of His Saviour. Most of us all know [or know of] his famous book [and film] "The Cross and the Switchblade" and ensuing publications. But Pastor David Wilkerson was so much more than that. He founded the Times Square Church in NYC in an area that many wouldn't; he authored many biblical publications; preached the True Gospel to and around the world and left a telling spiritual heritage to millions of people both in person and on-line. His successor Pastor Carter Conlon is a 'chip of the old block' too. He wasn't perfect - he made mistakes too - but to this writer; he was a shining light in an ever darkening spiritual climate in which the [so-called' 'church'] increasingly failed to do the duties to which it was supposedly called. Rest in peace David Wilkerson - I truly hope that many of those blessed by your ministry see you on the other side and embrace you.

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

MIRACLES FOR SALE: A PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE

Hello again folks! Just after I constructed yesterday's blog entitled: "Miracles For Sale"; it crossed my mind [and that of my wife Julie as well] to share an example of the kind of shameless mail order 'miracles' and downright evil deception has impacted my immediate family - and which was alluded to last night in the Channel Four programme of the same name. I write today to warn you about one of these 'organizations' - the not-so-humbly titled: "World Conquerors Christian Centre".

These events occurred over four [4] years ago and still stick in my throat. And this is why I applaud last nights programme. Here is the text of a letter that I wrote to 'Bishop' Climate Irungu at their Edinburgh HQ back in October 2006:

"I write on behalf of Mrs. Susan Thomas. I have in my possession nine letters from your organization addressed to one Susan “Thonis” or “Tiako” dated between 18th October 2005 and 26th September 2006 and I write with great concern and righteous indignation concerning the contents of these letters.

All of your letters initially paraphrase scripture and then purpose to report that you are specifically praying to or have specifically prayed to the LORD and that the LORD has spoken to you over a variety of situations pertaining to Susan’s life. In addition to this, scripture is taken out of context and are used to espouse the modern Christian doctrinal heresies of word-faith and prosperity now as well as other unbiblical teachings with respect to the nature, authority and power of the devil and that of the believer. I’m particularly concerned that in your letters to Susan, you offer to pray over or “anoint’” her prayer requests if and when you receive an offering from her in a specific time frame.

It is not my intention to write a long letter refuting the error of your teachings. However, it is clear in all the letters here in my possession that you state that the LORD is or has spoken to you clearly and specifically in respect of aspects of Susan’s life. I am writing to inform you that the LORD always speaks through and in accordance with His Word, the Bible; that the Blessed Holy Spirit always points people to the Lord Jesus Christ [not fallen man] and that the Spirit cannot err either in prophecy, doctrine or revelation.

This letter is not intended to personally attack you but to stir you to reconsider your ministry and teachings before the LORD and truly seek His face. Remember that scripture states that judgement begins at the House of God.

I am concerned that you exhibit in your writings the fruit of the false prophet and dreamer of dreams referred to Deuteronomy chapter 13; verses 1-5; Deuteronomy chapter 18; verses 20-22 and also Jeremiah chapter 23; verses 30-32.

You also imply that you can ‘pass on’ the “anointing” on to prayer requests and donations; and that this is dependant upon the receipt of donations from your appeals. The Bible states that there is only one Mediator between God and man; Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus [or ‘Yeshua’ in Hebrew meaning ‘salvation’] the Messiah is the Anointed One. Psalm 133 indicates that the “anointing” comes from Messiah [the beard of Aaron] to the skirts of his [priestly] garments. The “anointing” is not transferred or poured out by man but the Holy Spirit Himself. We can and should take our petitions and requests directly to God as we have a Great, High Priest. No ‘middleman’ is required.

Furthermore, the offering of donations or tithes or offerings in the New Testament church was via the local assembly of believers. Invariably, the scripture states that Paul took offerings to Jerusalem due to famine and/or the persecution of the saints and not a central administration area. He worked at tent making with Aquila and Priscilla so as to not be a financial burden to the local believers. The Macedonians were poor, giving and blessed. They went through tribulation daily.

As I mentioned before, it was not my intention to go into too much detail on these matters. It is of utmost urgency, though, that you repent of the various scripture misappropriations; false prophesying and the making merchandise of believers espoused by your ministry. I believe that if you truly look inward and seek God on these issues, ask Him to forgive you and reveal the true condition of your soul; He will open your eyes and ears to the Truth.

Last, but not least, I come to the primary reason for my sending you this letter. Susan’s last name was Thomas and not “Thonis” or “Tiako”. Susan Thomas died on 14th October 2005 [last year].

You claim to have direct words from the LORD. Your words do not compare with scripture. God does not make mistakes. Thus, I urge you to apologize, repent and return to the LORD. Remember the Word tells us that you; as a “Bishop” [or ‘overseer’]; will be and are accountable to God for your flock and those you minister to.

I have written this letter, not from a position of superiority, but one of humility praying that the LORD will clearly speak to you and that you will publicly repent.

Please do not send any more of these worldly, impersonal, standard letters to Susan, her husband or her children. It is obvious that that are mail shots with your customers name inserted at various points. These are not the ways of the Triune, Matchless God." [end quote]

Needless to say; I need say no more. DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

MIRACLES FOR SALE

Hello again folks! Some folks over here in the United Kingdom are absolutely outraged at Derren Brown's latest escapade on Channel 4 television entitled: "Miracles For Sale" where an unsuspecting member of the British public was trained and prepared to adopt the guise of a pastor and miracle worker in the United States. Brown's 'chosen one' had six months to learn the trade and flourish as a convincing pastor.


But I, for one, am not outraged at all.What this show proves is that there are an awful lot of crooks, charlatans, swindlers and wolves in sheep's clothing out there in 'Churchianity'. There are even True Christians who are open to the vilest deception and subject to their faith being monopolised and their wallets being fleeced because their doctrine is wrong - they believe that born-again believers cannot be deceived. Yet the Lord Himself via His Word constantly warns BELIEVERS about deception in the end times!

What this programme shows is that a lot of what you see in [so-called] 'Word-Faith movement' is at the very best show business and at the very worst soul destroying. We all know the names of the guilty: Benny Hinn ... Kenneth Copeland ... Creflo Dollar ... the list goes on. This programme proves without a doubt what scams are broadcast wall-to-wall on [so-called] 'Christian' TV.

I was actually comforted to see, at the end of the documentary, the same said 'false' pastor warning believers about the deceivers in their midst who are making themselves rich at the expense of sick, ailing and desperate souls. Oh for some actual REAL Pastors to get up at the pulpit and not hold back like this young man did on here tonight. The programme makers stated quite clearly that they intended to expose the fraudsters and not shipwreck the faith of real and honest believers. I guess the sad thing is that because the church can't or won't put its own house in order; we have someone else to do it.

I was asked tonight: "But what about the real miracles; the real folks truly gifted with this ministry?" My answer was this. Where there is the false that the enemy utilizes to distract and deceive - we must consider that there is the True also that God uses by His grace and mercy to confirm His Word and bless folks - according to His Will. Satan is the master forger but God is the Master. Period. When these programmes are broadcast; I wouldn't be outraged - I would look upon it as an opportunity to show folks a truer course settled upon sound doctrine.

FORBIDDEN HEALING

Hello again folks! An open question or two. Why would the European Union [EU] want to ban herbal medicines? And what's in it for the Brussels bureaucrats and those pharmaceutical giants? Now, yours truly is no New Age adherent and I was actually alerted to this by a good Christian friend of mine. She has sent me this link to web site entitled: "Forbidden Healing" which is campaigning against this latest EU ban; which due to take effect from Sunday 01-May-2011:


Basically; the EU are planning to take away YOUR right to choose to buy herbal remedies for health complaints. You can click on the above link to view a YouTube presentation and also choose to sign the petition - if you are so minded. For an overview of the legislation; please click on the link below:

BRITAIN - THE NATION THAT WAS FORMERLY GREAT

Hello again folks! It's a little quiet here on KJS-HW at the moment due to my UKIP election campaigning and other activities.Having said that; when I read today that an ex-soldier had been jailed for burning a copy of the koran in Carlisle city centre and was told also today by my wife Julie that another man could lose his job just for having a palm cross in his van:


It is clearly wrong to steal a book from a library and deface or burn it. I understand that. But to send a man down for burning the koran is wrong in a so-called 'Christian' country. Andrew Ryan was so incensed at the outright insult of a muslim burning a poppy on Remembrance Day that he took his own chosen course of action. He is jailed for seventy [70] days for that whereas Emdadur Choudhury - who could be termed as a national 'traitor' - was fined just £50 for burning a poppy.

A man could lose his job for displaying a 'Christian' symbol. A woman was sacked by BA for wearing a cross not so long ago. A couple are banned from fostering children because they are 'fundamentalist' Christians who hold out for their principles. A Christian couple may well lose their property and livelihood for refusing a gay couple a room with a double bed.

The list goes on. Day after day; this once proud and God-fearing country of Britain and Northern Ireland becomes less 'Great' every day. I can see it. Some of you can see it. Even some non-Christians [God bless 'em] can see it. Yet the 'powers-that-be' and our Government are continuing to de-Christianize this country whilst giving ground to atheism; islam and any other 'ism' except the Christian faith and principles that it used to be famed for. I do not hear too many folks in the CoE waking up and smelling the coffee either. They are apparently too busy cosying up with Rome and the coming proponents of the 'One World Religion' as espoused by Tony Blair and the UN.

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

PEOPLE AGAINST PYLONS

Hello again folks! My good friend Joanna Livermore asked me at a recent 'Beatles Blues and Blue Violin' [BBBV] gig in Shrewsbury to put up a post here on KJS-HW to highlight the campaign that she is involved with over in Mid-Wales that is close to her heart - and more worryingly for the rest of us - more relevant than it seems at first glance. The lack of a cohesive energy policy in the UK hides behind a more sinister agenda that appears to forcefully promote wind power to appease the 'Gaia' green agenda more than anything else:

"You may have seen it on TV or read about it in the newspapers. Mid-Wales and Shropshire are under threat by the National Grid to erect massive 165 foot pylons across the countryside. This will have a devastating effect on the tourism industry as well as the health of the local population. I, two of my children and their families will be affected; as will so many other people I know stretching in both directions into Shropshire and into Wales. Mid-Wales has amazing scenery - as does Shropshire. Both have beautiful walks. This is their pulling power - and as a result - we have a healthy tourist industry. If the pylons were to go ahead, then some of the most beautiful sites in Mid-Wales and Shropshire will be destroyed forever. We have a huge fight on our hands, because the National Grid [a privately owned company with nothing national about it at all] is deaf to suggestions of putting the cables underground with the GIL method.

I realise that some of you don't live in Shropshire or Wales, but many of you have been here for holidays et al. Please look at the website and/or write a letter of objection to the National Grid:


There are six [6] sample letters to choose from [if you don't want to create your own] and they are all available to download. The aim is to get 100,000 letters and 100,000 signatures by 24-May-2011. Our petition has to be submitted by 03-June-2011; so we have made 24-May-2011 our goal. You don't need to be a resident here to write a letter of objection. As you know ... it looks as though our [locality] would be the preferred route as it is the shortest; but there are three [3] choices of corridors, and each 'corridor' contains potentially three [3] or four [4] routes. One of these pylons would be less than 200 metres away from my house, and adjacent to the garden of some of my friends. A few miles away; four [4] houses have a pylon in the field next to them - but not a 165 foot tall one. At least one member of each of the residents in those houses is presently fighting cancer. The National Grid do their own studies and refute that the pylons cause cancer. But we can produce the proof in cancer patients [still] standing on two legs who live in close proximity to the pylons. Please; Please; Please write a letter of objection! Ask husbands, wives, children, aunts, uncles and/or friends to write. The address is on the website mentioned above and is:

FREEPOST National Grid; Mid Wales Connection.

Please will you put something up on your blog regarding the futility of wind farms. We are going to be affected because if these huge pylons are erected - our health will be endangered and what little industry we have in tourism will be forever spoiled - in order to carry energy. The link below is for a similar campaign in North Somerset and shows what lies ahead for us. At least we have some kind of warning; so hopefully we will be forewarned and ready" [end quote]:
