The Ignorant Fishermen Blog: WARNING! Iran and Syria - Don't Mess with Israel!

The Ignorant Fishermen Blog: WARNING! Iran and Syria - Don't Mess with Israel!


WARNING! Iran and Syria - Don't Mess with Israel!

We are presently at a time when we are constantly seeing Israel’s border enemies ever more emboldened to stir up strife and lash out against Israel.  As this present conflict in the Middle East intensifies and Israel sees herself ever alone in this big bad evil world, DO NOT expect Israel to just idly sit by and watch their nation be wiped off the map of planet earth. With Iran and Syria ever breathing threats at Israel and Israel's border enemies doing like wise the tensions are extremely high in the Middle East and in the world. We as Bible believers know without a shadow of a doubt that Almighty God has GREAT things for Israel but until they believe they will find that they are all alone in Satan's big bad Israel hating world (Zech. 12:2-3, 13:8-9, 14:2-3)!
WARNING O Islamic Nations! Don't Mess with Israel!

Just in the last few months alone we have seen Israel’s border enemies seeking to bait and provoke Israel to engage them and rally world opinion and its leaders against them. Israel’s border enemies - especially the Palestinian people - sadly are nothing but the pawns and victims of the anti Semitic Arab nationsIran and Russia. These weaker Islamic nations are more than willing to heed these voices and are rabidly chomping at the bit to destroy Israel and occupy Israel’s land.

Under Obama and the progressive Left we have seen America forsake Israel and thrown her under theMiddle East Islamic bus.

Also - as of late- we have seen the world led by the United States seeking to strip from Israel it present day borders and bullying them into a forced agreement with those who absolutely abhor them and seek their utter destruction. Sadly, America has always beenIsrael’s strongest ally, but at present - under Obama and the progressive Left - we have seen America forsake Israel and thrown her under the Middle EastIslamic bus while also supporting the Islamic Brotherhood. With an anti-Israeli Europe and now a current anti-Israeli U.S. administration, Israel’s back is totally up against the wall and they know it. 

Let me give a most solemn warning to ALL NATIONS of the EARTH, DON'T MESS WITH THE APPLE OF ALMIGHTY GOD'S EYE.
May I - a gentile - who personally knows the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through my saving relationship to the Messiah of Israel as the Holy Scriptures dictate (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 53, John 1:12, 3:16-17) - give a most solemn warning to ALL NATIONS of the EARTH. DON'T MESS WITH THE APPLE OF ALMIGHTY GOD'S EYE (Gen. 12:3, Zech. 2:8)!! Even though Israel - at this moment - is OUT OF THE WILL of God, they STILL represent Almighty God's future plan and promises for the nations of the world under Jesus (i.e., Salvation) Messiah in the  Kingdom Age and for ETERNITY (Isa. 11:1-10, Micah 4:1-3, Zech 12:8-14, 13:1, 14:1-4, Rom. 9-11, Rev. 1:7, 20:6).
When the present world which we are living in is becoming more and more hostile and aggressive towards Israel, DO NOT expect to see Israel idly stand by and let the world decide their fate and eradicate them from off of the face of the earth. Israel is a military might in that region with nukes and is armed to the teeth. As the world continues its anti-Semitic agenda they will one day choose to look the other way and allow Israel’s enemies in that region to grossly cross the line withIsrael. It will BE THEN that Israel - in the reaction of self defense and national survival – WILL FINALLY strike back with great fury and military might. It will be at this time that Israel will TOTALLY institute the "Limbaugh Doctrine" against their border enemies and absolutely secure their borders. They will obliterate and wipe out their border enemies unto the point that they will achieve finally complete safety and security (Ezek. 38:8, 11-12)Israel will bring about their “own” peace and the world at that time will be forced to recognize it.

It will be at this time that Israel will TOTALLY institute the "Limbaugh Doctrine" against their border enemies and absolutely secure their borders.

It will be after this time that a man from Europe will rise up, broker a deal and lend his might to a covenant (peace treaty) on behalf of Israel’s greatly DEFEATED enemies. This European leader will enter into a seven year covenant with Israel not from a position of dominance but rather from a position of weakness (Dan. 9:27, Rev. 6:2)The prophetic wheels are in motion to the point of fulfillment. As we look out of our windows, all is being set around us to bring in these fulfilling “End Time” events”.

As we draw closer to that FINAL HOUR, expect Israel’s demonic wrathful psychotic enemies to continue to rage and fight AGAINST Israel and their right to existence in the world (Zech. 12:2-4,14:2-4, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:1-3, Rev 12, 16;13-16), all the while knowing that Israel can NEVER be eradicated -  (2 Sam. 7:24, 1 Chr. 17:22, Jer. 31:35-36, Rom. 9-11) and driven out of their land again, even when the Anti Christ wages his ALL OUT war on Israel and establishes his seat there - in the last 3 ½ years called the GREAT tribulation - yet he will still fail, but Israel will abide FOREVER (Dan. 11:45, Zech. 12:2-4,14, 2 Thess. 2:8, Rev. 19:19-20)!

As we draw closer to that FINAL HOUR, expect Israel’s demonic wrathful psychotic enemies to continue to rage and fight AGAINST Israel and their right to existence in the world.

The land of Canaan has been given solely unto the children of Israel forever by Almighty God and if you can destroy the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS GOD OF ALL CREATION then you can have the land (Deut. 11:24-25, Josh. 1:3-5, Ezek. 40-48). My friend’s, that is what the FINAL battle of Armageddon is all about (Zech. 12:2-4, 14:2-4, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 16:13-16), seeking to over throw Almighty God!

It will be at the END of all of these events (seven years to the exact day from the strengthening of the covenant) that Almighty God’s Son, the Messiah of Israel will RETURN from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel and then He will establish His glorious Kingdom reign for a thousand years in Jerusalem (Isa. 11:1-10, Micah 4:1-3, Zech 12:8-14, 13:1, 14:1-4, Rev. 1:7, 20:6). In these brief seven years, Israelwill have come full circle. Finally, it will be during this time of great testing and horrific persecution by the gentile nations under the Anti Christ (Isa. 24:5-6, Zech. 13:8-9,12:9-7,13) that Israel will turn from their godless ways and receive their Messiah and Savior, the Lord Yeshua Messiah (Deut. 4:30, Psalm 2; 110, Isa.25:9, 45:17, Jer. 33:16, Zech. 12:8-14,13:1,9, Rom. 11:26).
It will be at the END of all of these events that Almighty God’s Son, the Messiah of Israel will RETURN from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel.

It will take the Divine judgment and the natural and SUPER natural ravishing of planet earth and her godless inhabitants (Isa. 24:5-6, Matt. 24, Rev. 13) - which concludes with the final blood bath of the Battle of Armageddon (Zech. 12:2-4, 14:1-4, Rev. 16:13-16, Rev. 19:11-21) - to bring Israel to the place of repentance and deliverance (Isa. 25:9, Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1,9).

My friend, as these events continue to unfold right before our very eyes may you be sure that you know the Savior of the world, King of the Jews and Lord of ALL creation, the Jesus Messiah as your personal Savior. All depends on what you will do with ALL that He has done for you (John 3:16-17, 2 Cor. 5:12-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!

Tensions thicken; immediate future looks bleak for Syrians

Syria (MNN) ― Like kids in a playground fight, world leaders are taking sides over Syria, and a showdown is looming.
The U.S. and UK lead a party of nations who say Syria used chemical weapons against its own people. Russia and Iran back the Syrian government, who blames rebel factions.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and UK Prime Minister David Cameron both condemned the international crime. Kerry spoke of "undeniable" evidence that Syria's government used chemical weapons against its own people. Across the pond, Cameron says parliament members will be recalled from their summer break to discuss how Britain should respond.
"Our sense of basic humanity is offended not only by this cowardly crime, but also by the cynical attempt to cover it up," Kerry told reporters earlier this week.
Meanwhile, Syrian allies Russia and Iran, along with China, strongly urge Western nations to wait for the results of a UN inspection. While Russia warns of a catastrophic ripple effect throughout the Islamic world if the West steps in, Iran takes it a step further.
"If the United States crosses this red line, there will be harsh consequences for the White House," said Iranian military chief Massoud Jazayeri earlier this week.
No matter what happens next, Peter Howard of Food for the Hungrysays one result is inevitable.
"Any escalation of violence in the region, whether the U.S. is involved or not, just creates more sadness, more heartbreak, [and] more loss of life," states Howard.
Talk of more attacks "creates more fear and more chaos, and the numbers of refugees are probably likely to only increase in the next few days and weeks," he adds.
FH helps churches on-the-ground in Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan.
"We're supporting local churches and organizations to meet the long-term and immediate needs of the refugees who've been fleeing the war," Howard explains.
Some of FH's support includes food and shelter. FH also provides for less obvious but equally vital needs: "things like mattresses, beds, hygiene kits-- things that families need for living," says Howard.
In addition, Food for the Hungry is tackling a troubling aspect of Syria's crisis: the "Lost Generation."
A UN report released at the end of last week reveals startling statistics. In total, children compose half of all Syrian refugees. A million are under the age of 18, and approximately 740,000 are younger than 11 years old.
Inside Syria, an estimated 7,000 kids have been killed during the three-year civil war, and over 2 million are internally displaced.
"We don't want those children to be lost and to get pulled into the fighting...or into other dangerous occupations," Howard states. "We want those children to be children."
As a result, "Food for the Hungry is supporting what we call 'Child Friendly Spaces,'" he explains, "where children can be kids and where children can learn, so we don't have what many people call the 'Lost Generation.'"

"Day in and day out, there's heartbreak over loss of life, and that's where the Church can shine as they bring the comfort and the hope that [exists] through our compassionate God," says Howard.
"They're God's light in the region, so my prayer and my hope is that the international Church, the Church in America, will come alongside the Syrian Church and the Middle Eastern Church as they reach out to their communities."

Fed Judge Declares Anti-Gay Sermon a “Crime Against Humanity” | Stand Up for the Truth

Fed Judge Declares Anti-Gay Sermon a “Crime Against Humanity” | Stand Up for the Truth


judge hand with gavel
Yes, it has happened in America: A federal judge has ruled that a biblically based denunciation of homosexuality was a “crime against humanity.” Joe Wolverton at The New American has the story:
In his decision in the case of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) v. Lively, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Ponsor held that Scott Lively, an evangelical pastor, was “aiding and abetting a crime against humanity” when Lively spoke in Uganda and in America against homosexual behavior.
Ponsor wrote in his 79-page opinion that Lively’s message was “analogous to a terrorist designing and manufacturing a bomb in this country, which he then mails to Uganda with the intent that it explode there.”
The plaintiff in the case is a consortium of groups based in Kampala, Uganda that fight for “fair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people” in the East Africa region.
Ponsor says that Lively, by publishing tracts and delivering discourses condemning same-sex relationships, was acting as “an upper-level manager or leader of a criminal enterprise.”
While in Uganda, Lively praised local pastors working to fight the proliferation of sexual activity between those of the same gender, basing his remarks on his interpretation of the Bible’s condemnation of such behavior.
“I’ve never done anything in Uganda except preach the Gospel and speak my opinion about the homosexual issue,” Lively told theNew York Times.
Reading between the lines, it becomes apparent that the “criminal enterprise” in which Ponsor found Lively engaged was that of believing, preaching, and promoting Judeo-Christian morality in an age that glorifies ungodliness and exalts satisfaction of appetites above the sacrifice of self to the will of God.

The Ignorant Fishermen Blog: Moses and Elijaih - Islam's Greatest Friend in the Day of the Lord!


Moses and Elijaih - Islam's Greatest Friend in the Day of the Lord!

During the time of the seven year tribulation period the godless gentile world will be seeking the complete annihilation and destruction of the Jews, the nation of Israel and Almighty God's Two Witnesses and messengers (Zech. 14:2, Dan. 9:27, Rev. 11:3-6, 12:6-17; 13:7 17:14).

It will be also during the first half of the "seven year tribulation" (after the Rapture)that countless Muslims from Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Jordon, Iraq, Iran etc. will come to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of the Messiah of Israel by the preaching and teaching of the Two Witnesses of Israel (i.e., MOSES and ELIJAH). It will be MOSES and ELIJAH that will be the CATALYST to bringing countless Muslims to the saving knowledge of the Messiah (Jesus Christ) via the 144,000 Jewish evangelists (Rev. 7:1-10). Islam has the utmost and greatest respect for MOSES and ELIJAH. It will be by these very two patriarchs of old that Almighty God will send to Israel first (Rom. 1:16) to call that nation to repentance and to SALVATION to the Messiah of Israel, the Lord Jesus Christ (Ps. 110:1, Isa. 53), and it will be by their MIGHTY ministry that they will lead (firstly) a remnant of Jews to a saving knowledge of their Messiah and then countless Muslims also (Matt. 8:11, 25: 31-40, Luke 13:29, Rev. 7:13-17; 14). Many Muslims will lose their lives(via beheading – Rev. 20:4) for their obedience to Israel's Messiah the Lord Jesus, the Savior of the world, but at the end of this seven year tribulation age - these individuals will be resurrected and given glorified bodies and dwell in the Kingdom age with the Messiah of Israel (Rev. 20:4)!

It will be MOSES and ELIJAH that will be the CATALYST to bringing countless Muslims to the saving knowledge of the Messiah (Jesus Christ) via the 144,000 Jewish evangelists!

It will be during this time (after the Rapture of the Church and the murder and resuscitation of Moses and Elijah)Rev. 11:7-19, that Almighty God's newly chosen army of BELIEVING evangelical Jews in the Messiah of Israel will GO FORTH into the entire world giving the Gospel of Salvation unto ALL gentiles nations (Matt. 24:14, Acts 17:30-31, Rev. 7:9-10)! One particular group which these newly BELIEVING Jews will seek to reach will be their arch enemy, the millions of individuals of Islam that remain alive at this point (Ezek. 38-39, Rev.6-9). These Islamic individual’s zeal and hostility toward Israel at present and then will be raging, but the ETERNAL LOVE of Almighty G-d’s redeem will be abundant(Psalm 40:1-3, John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4). These 144,000 Jewish evangelists (during this time) will be sealed by Almighty God for a great Divine task in the direst of hours (Rev. 7:1-10). These messengers of Almighty God will be fearless! These Jewish evangelists will lead countless individuals from among ALL nations to the ETERNAL saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the World (Gen. 18:8, 22:18, 26:4, Matt 24:14, John 3:16-17, Gal. 3:8). What is most amazing is that a great number of these gentile individuals will be those of the Muslim people (Isa. 19:23-25, Luke 13:29, Rom. 5:20). The very despised and abominable thing in the mind of a Muslim will be the VERY vehicle for their ETERNAL salvation in the near future! (1 Cor. 1:18-31)

Today, Islamic nations completely surround and engulf the land of Israel. Israel - as it were - as an atoll in the great Pacific Ocean. Again it will be during this time of the horrific seven year tribulation period(Rev.6-16) that countless followers of Islam will abandon their spiritual ideology for HEAVENLY REALITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 10:2-4). Many in the most darkened region of the world will OPEN their hearts and minds and cast off their oppressive Islamic ideological shackles and will come to FULLY acknowledge the RIGHTEOUS REALITY that the Messiah (Jesus Christ) of Israel IS also the Savior of the world! When these Muslim individuals come to see this REALITY for all that it is worth, they will be radically transformed and will worship and serve Almighty God their Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (John 4:24, 17:17)! They will love NOT their lives even unto death and will profess to their fellow Muslim brethren that Jesus Messiah Saves (Rev.12:11, Rev. 20:4)!

Many in the most darkened region of the world will OPEN their hearts and minds and cast off their oppressive Islamic ideological shackles and will come to FULLY acknowledge the RIGHTEOUS REALITY that the Messiah (Jesus Christ) of Israel IS also the Savior of the world!

Even today, countless thousands of Muslims each year are leaving the oppressive and fatalistic delusion of the Islamic religion (i.e., spiritual philosophy). These masses have come to a saving knowledge of Jesus the Messiah, the Savior of the world (John 14:6, Acts 4:12) and have found that it is He ALONE who truly saves and loves and is truly full of all GRACE and MERCY (Isa. 60:1-3, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 8:21-23, Matt. 8:11,John 3:1:17)!

It will be at the end of this EXPONENTIALLY horrific time period(Isa. 24:5-6, Rev.19:11-21) that all who know the Lord as Savior and survive this catastrophic period (including saved Muslims will enter in to the Kingdom of Heaven under the reign of the Messiah of Israel (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ) and truly enjoy the fullness of joy with their Savior and Maker, the Triune God (Isa. 2:2-3; 60, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 8:22-23, 14:8-21, Matt. 25:31-34, Luke 13:29)!

The countless inhabitants from Islamic nations, who have come to a saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel during this tribulation period will be LOVED and PROVIDED for in the Messiah's 1000 year reign and for ALL ETERNITY (Isa. 19:20-25, Rom. 5:10, Eph. 2:3-5, Col. 1:20-21). Oh my beloved, can you not just rejoice in the WONDROUS GRACE AND MERCY of Almighty God!!!
"In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. "In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance" (Isa. 19:23-25).

"Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom. 5:20)

My friend, it is our earnest desire and prayer that many (Jew and Gentile) would cometo a saving knowledge of the Savior of the world before theDay of the Lord begins! It is ONLY by and through the LOVE of Almighty God that enemies can become reconciled and become brothers and co -labors for the glory of God (Rom. 3:22, 29, 1 Cor. 5:14,12:13, Gal. 3:8,26, Eph 2:14). It is our sincere desire that many would come out of Islam in these days before the Day of the Lord and into a saving relationship to the ONLY TRUE Savior for this fallen world, the Lord Jesus Christ! (John 3:16-17)

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


A Message for our Muslim Friends


The Impending U.S. Signature of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

The Impending U.S. Signature of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

The Impending U.S. Signature of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

The United States could be free to sign the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty as soon as Thursday.
When the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) opened for national signatures on June 3, Secretary of State John Kerry welcomed it with open arms, noting that the U.S. “look[ed] forward to signing it as soon as the process of conforming the official translations is completed satisfactorily.”
The ATT was negotiated in English, and initial translations of it into the U.N.’s other official languages were flawed. Revised translations have since been circulated, and unless objections to the new language are received, the final translation—into Russian—will be formally complete as of August 28. Thus, by the standard Secretary Kerry has set, the U.S. is likely now free to sign the ATT.
For many reasons, this would be an unwise decision. The Administration is to be commended for at least waiting until the translations are complete before signing onto the treaty—it is a basic precaution, after all, to know what it is you are signing before you put your name on it. As a matter of practice, the U.S. is unlikely to sign until late September, when the General Assembly starts its new session. Signing then would extract the maximum favorable publicity from the assembled nations in New York.
It’s not, though, likely to mollify concerns in the U.S. In recent months, 130 Members of the House backed a letter led by Representative Mike Kelly (R–PA) opposing U.S. signature of the ATT, and the Senate and House have adopted various measures to ban funding for implementing the ATT. A bipartisan Concurrent Resolution led by Senator Jerry Moran (R–KS) and Representative Kelly has 35 cosponsors in the Senate and 148 in the House.
But events are moving elsewhere in the world. Last month, the U.N. released a report of the Secretary-General on “Assistance to States for Curbing the Illicit Traffic in Small Arms and Light Weapons and Collecting Them,” which noted that it expects the ATT to have a “synergistic relationship” with other U.N. instruments, such as its Programme of Action on Small Arms and Light Weapons. In Latin America, which collectively has 33 votes in the U.N., firearms owners are opposing a well-funded lobby that is advancing restrictive controls in Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, and—of course—Venezuela. When the ATT comes up for amendment in six years, it is likely to be deeply embedded in all the U.N. firearms initiatives and further tightened by demand of the U.N. majority, which will say many fine-sounding things about their support for social justice, freedom, and peace.
But of course, it’s say one thing, do another. Witness Africa, supposedly a leading backer of the ATT and an advocate of “reducing spending on arms,” which is becoming a center of “cut-throat competition” for its rapidly expanding defense marketplace. You will never go broke by betting on hypocrisy at the U.N.
So the story of the ATT will not be over when the U.S. signs it. Indeed, it will barely have begun.

The American Spectator : Rush Limbaugh Derangement Syndrome, Obama-Style

The American Spectator : Rush Limbaugh Derangement Syndrome, Obama-Style

Rush Limbaugh Derangement Syndrome, Obama-Style

He seeks to control debates by banning opponents from them.
Concealed within President Obama’s carping about Rush Limbaugh is a distaste for democracy. Obama is not the first aspiring tyrant to complain that the pen is mightier than the sword, or in this case, that the pundit is mightier than the president.
Speaking to CNN last week, Obama whined that Republicans listen to Rush Limbaugh too much. They need to “think less about politics and party and think more about what’s good for the country,” he said. “I’ve made this argument to my Republican friends privately, and, by the way, sometimes they say to me privately, ‘I agree with you, but I’m worried about a primary from, you know, somebody in the tea party back in my district’ or, ‘I’m worried about what Rush Limbaugh is going to say about me on radio.’”
If Obama’s story here is true — that GOP pols whisper anti-Limbaugh fears to him over dinner — they are even bigger weasels than previously suspected. Obama’s attempt to drive a wedge between these spineless Republicans and Limbaugh is part of his drive to build a de facto one-party state. That’s all he means by “unity.”
By “bipartisanship,” he means collusion in error, free of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative voices who would counsel against it. Talk radio is the lever by which American politics is pulled to the right, so Obama has to smash it.
He represents a familiar figure in history: the left-wing revolutionary who rises to power by praising dissent, then stays in power by trying to suppress it. This suppression is usually cast in terms of “civility,” respect for government, or whatever other cant works at the moment. Bill Clinton, furious with Limbaugh, once shouted that the talk show host had a whole “three hours a day” to oppose his policies and sow hatred of “government,” by which Clinton roughly meant liberals in power. Very civil folks like Clinton aide Paul Begala even helped set up a phony “civility” commission at the University of Pennsylvania to stop the rising tide of Limbaughian hate.
Somehow Obama’s concerns about civility didn’t stop him from writing a glowing blurb for domestic terrorist Bill Ayers or dissuade him from attending the “God damn America” sermons of Jeremiah Wright. Out of power, Obama defined dissent as patriotism. In power, he treats it as near-treason.
His comments to CNN are a continuation of the Maoist media strategy his former flaks Anita Dunn and David Axelrod pursued in the first term, when they bumblingly tried to delegitimize Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Dunn left the White House after her gushing to a high school audience about Mao as her “favorite political philosopher” was exposed, but not before deploying a few of his tactics, one of which is to control debates by banning opponents from them.
Obama nurtures the hopes of a dictatorship, not a democracy. That’s what stands behind all his talk about “obstructionism” from the Tea Party and talk radio. Unable to dispel their arguments, he has to resort to the shorthand politics of demagogic name-calling in the hopes of erasing them from the debate.
“It would be good if Obama could be a dictator for a few years,” said the director Woody Allen in 2010 — a musing that Obama himself would later entertain in a 2011 speech to the National Council of La Raza. “Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And believe me, right now, dealing with Congress… the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you. Not just on immigration reform,” he said. Obama did acknowledge that that’s “not how our system works,” but the audience brushed that off, chanting “Yes, you can!” and “Change it.”
Presidents in trouble often shoot down at members of the press, so it is a good sign that Obama is back to ranting about talk radio. Richard Nixon had his speechwriters call pundits “nattering nabobs of negativity.” The Clintons denounced a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” Obama’s recurring case of Rush Limbaugh derangement syndrome — the last time it flared up he lost the House — is similarly a measure not of confidence but of fear.

Joel Osteen Rebukes Apostles Paul, Peter, and John

Joel Osteen Rebukes Apostles Paul, Peter, and John

Joel Osteen Rebukes Apostles Paul, Peter, and John 
United for Awakening ^ | 8/27/13 | Peter Michael Martinez 
Posted on 08/28/2013 12:22:54 PM PDT by Sopater
According to Joel Osteen – Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, these first century apostles are wrong and outdated and he has come out boldly to infer indirectly that Apostles Paul, Peter, and John whom wrote much of the New Testament were wrong and need to be corrected and rebuked.
When asked directly if people whom are openly practicing homosexuals are accepted into the Kingdom, Joel Osteen responded with “Absolutely, anybody is.”
We all need to listen carefully to the words that this “man of God” speaks as he goes on interviews so we too can find the errors in the preaching of the first century apostles.
Joel does acknowledge that some things are “sin” but says, “I don’t address these things from the pulpit. They only come up in interviews.” When asked if openly practicing gay/homosexual people will be accepted into heaven, Joel Osteen responded, “I believe they will.”
He makes no mention of the need for repentance.

Joel Osteen Brings Us Universalism

The doctrine of universalism is the belief that all people are “saved” no matter who you are or what you’ve done.
This is a new version of the “good news” that is MUCH BETTER than the message the Jesus and the Apostles preached 2,ooo years ago which was far too narrow according to the way Joel Osteen explains his “message.”
“I’m for everybody” says Joel Osteen, “I’m not into excluding people. Jesus can reveal himself to anybody.”
The idea is that since no one would be accepted if we are called to be “holy” then all have to be accepted. So goes this logic. This doctrine also believes that all roads lead to heaven so there is no one “way, truth, and life that leads to the father.”
According to Joel, “sin means to miss the mark” which, while technically correct, stands in contrast to the teachings of many writers of the Bible that teach that sin is violation of God’s Holy Laws so if by missing the mark Joel means violating God’s ways, then yes, sin is missing the mark.
According to the out of date writers of the Bible, the “wages of sin is death” for which blood is required and for which a sacrifice was presented.
It sounds a lot more harsh to say SIN is TREASON punishable by death than to say it is “missing the mark” which is a bit incomplete. Sin is also “to incur guilt, incur penalty” which according to the scripture is death.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
When asked about people who live in open sin, Joel smilingly said, “I’m not going to bash those people. I’m not going to be against those people. They’re good people.”
So by contrast, Apostle Jude is “bashing people” when he said:
Jude 1:14-16 “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.”
Joel’s wife recently said to Piers Morgan. “It’s the people that we’re after. We’re not trying to judge their sin. We want to encourage them and love them. You’re only going to win people by reaching out to them.”
Isn’t that so awesome! They are all about the people! They want you and I be accepted without having to discuss anything like repentance or righteousness. These are “judgmental” subjects that we just don’t need.
These modern day ministry giants have gone on national television toessentially correct Apostles Peter, John, and Paul to say … they are wrong … if you listen to Joel Osteen. So many across the nation are so proud of this Pastor and his courage in confronting the church fathers!
According to Joel Osteen, Apostle Paul erroneously stated to the Corinthians …
1 Corinthians 6:8-10 “Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. 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.”
In saying this, according to Joel Osteen, Apostle Paul is being “exclusionary” and should be rebuked and corrected. He is obviously wrong and should never have said these things to the Corinthian church.
Corinth was known for its sexual openness and promiscuity so for Paul to “condemn” all these “good people” was completely out of order and he needs to be rebuked.
When Paul wrote to the Romans he also was in complete error in stating the following in the first chapter of his letter, according to Joel Osteen.
“And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
According to Joel Osteen, Paul was absolutely incorrect and to state that being a homosexual is a sin is being “judgmental” and should not be tolerated. It is just wrong according to Joel Osteen. Many people agree with Joel Osteen today and so, Apostle Paul is apparently misguided and incorrect in his letter.
Joel goes on to point out the additional errors in the words Apostle Paulwrote.
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Paul went on to write in the first chapter of Romans, which according to the words of Joel Osteen, he is deeply misguided and mistaken.
Apostle Paul should repent for saying such things according to Joel Osteen. A growing number of people in America agree with Joel that Apostle Paul should be rebuked for ever saying such things because Paul isn’t accepting of people like Joel Osteen is.
Equally misguided and incorrect according to Joel Osteen is Paul’s words to the Galatian church. In his writings, Apostle Paul made stunning comments that were clearly exclusionary statements concerning the Kingdom and those whom are accepted, and in so doing has made grave error according to Joel Osteen.
See if you can detect the absolutely false statements that Apostle Paul made to the Galatian church according to the stated doctrine of Joel Osteen.
Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
You can clearly see what has Joel Osteen so unhappy that he’s gone on national television to correct this! It is this type of rhetoric, according to Joel Osteen, that is completely false and misrepresents the God he serves.
Joel Osteen’s God loves everybody and there are no exclusions because then, according to Joel, “none of us would be saved.” So again, Apostle Paul was completely incorrect and should never have written such harsh and insensitive words to the Galatian church according to Joel.
I imagine Joel Osteen would say “shame on Apostle Paul for ever writing such hateful words!”
Now, not only is Joel out to correct the misguided Apostle Paul, but Apostle Peter was also brought into serious question for clearly being exclusionary when he wrote these words.
1 Peter 1:14-16 “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
According to the doctrine Joel Osteen has now shared with us all as “his message,” being clearly more evolved and enlightened than the archaic Apostle Peter, no one can be holy. We are left to conclude that Peter is misguided and is being judgmental. What a terrible yoke and condemnation Apostle Peter is trying to put on the good people he is writing to.
Additionally, Apostle Peter goes on to say things that are completely against the Lakewood Church Pastor’s God when he stated the following.
2 Peter 2:6-8 “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)”
According to Joel Osteen’s public comments, one could conclude that Apostle Peter was in complete error and deceived when he wrote such things. What a terrible condemnation. He clearly did not know the doctrine that Joel Osteen preaches or he would never have said such awful and critical things.
Joel Osteen indirectly implies (subtly) that these apostles were false and were critical and judgmental and should NOT be listened to in America today. We all need to listen instead to Joel Osteen and Oprah Winfrey.
Now Apostle John made even greater errors if the benchmark is Joel Osteen’s “message” when he stated some of the thing that he wrote which, according to Joel Osteen, is just plain and simply not true.
It takes a lot of courage for Joel to stand against these writings but he believes strongly in his “uplifting and encouraging” doctrine that does not endorse such harsh and judgmental statements as written by these ancient Apostles.
We should all pray for Joel Osteen because he needs our prayers if he’s going to continue to champion the cause of those oppressed and condemned by the writings and statements of Apostles like Paul, Peter and John.
Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
You see, according to Joel Osteen in a recent interview, “God doesn’t see any sin as worse than another” and all are going to heaven. Apparently in Joel Osteen’s bible, he has redacted the unpardonable sin. So if you’re a follower of Joel Osteen’s then this statement by Apostle John must seem just plain wrong.
Apostle John doesn’t know what he’s talking about and we need to listen to the wisdom of Joel Osteen. Apostle John clearly was in error and should be rebuked for suggesting that people who tell lies are going to have their part in the lake of fire.
What was Apostle John thinking writing such judgmental things???
That’s a terrible thing to say and no one, certainly not Apostle John, should be allowed to say such things. As Joel says, “there’s enough condemnation in the world” and we don’t need anymore.
Additionally, in his letter, Apostle John says things like …
1 John 3:8-10 “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”
Now according to Joel Osteen and the thousands that agree with his “message,” this entire passage should be removed from the pages of the bible and no one should be saying such things. In fact, Joel goes on to share that it is this exact kind of preaching that will hinder “church growth.”
Apostles Paul, Peter, and John listen up. Joel Osteen rebukes you all.
Now listen, Joel Osteen and his ministry in Houston are all about people. He is standing up for your rights! He is taking a REALLY BIG RISK because … if he’s wrong, and Apostle Paul is right … then he stands to be cursed! So he needs your support in prayer NOW!
Galatians 1:9 “As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Instead, you all need to listen to his message of universal acceptance and lawless living without any condemnation so we can all “lift our spirits” and be “encouraging and loving” to all people no matter what lifestyle or choices they make. After all, according to Joel, God loves us all and everyone is going to heaven so lighten up!
There is no exclusive path to the Kingdom. According to Joel Osteen, we need to hear this message because it’s the right message and anyone that says that there is an exclusive path to God is wrong.
Joel would know, look at the size of his church! He is clearly telling you the truth more than anyone in history.
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Exactly how much error is too much?


  • Overview of Joel Osteen/Oprah deceptions:
  • Joel Osteen meets with Larry King … Here’s the link:
  • Joel Osteen meets with Piers Morgan … Here’s the link:
    • To his credit, in this interview Joel does call out sin, however, he softens it and backs away from talking about repentance … and when he is asked “what would you say” his comment is that he doesn’t understand. You’re leading the largest church in America and you don’t understand REPENTANCE?
The quotes are taken right from what Joel himself has spoken. He positions himself on his own without being told how to answer. On the one hand he wants to appease his Christian followers by saying “the bible says” but on the other he clearly fellowships with darkness and facilitates those whom deny the power thereof.
2 Timothy 3:1-7 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selvescovetous, boasters, proud,blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholywithout natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
