(vid) Michael Brown: Why Calvinism Does Not Reflect the Nature and Character of God – “DOOMED FROM THE WOMB to certain death… to glorify Him by their destruction” vs ‘MY HEART YEARNS for the rebellious to come and repent’

Michael Brown is stubbornly erroneous on some key issues right now, but he’s spot on here. Calvinism is actually blasphemy, and is taught at most evangelical seminaries today!

Some quotes I transcribed:

“If God ordained that someone would do evil, why does it grieve Him when they do evil? And why does He express His desire that they not do evil?”

“Throughout the Word, God makes it clear that He takes no delight in the death of the wicked, but desires rather that they would repent and live.”

“Hear God’s heart: ‘I have no desire for the death of the wicked. My heart is yearning for the wicked to come and repent. Even in your disobedience My heart goes out to you.’ Contrast that with the words of John Calvin…. ‘God arranges all things by His sovereign counsel in such a way that individuals are born who are doomed from the womb to certain death, and are to glorify Him by their destruction.’ God brought them into the world with the specific purpose of glorifying Him by being destroyed.”

(vid) Art Mathias: Healed Because He Forgave — “I purpose and I choose to forgive from my heart”

Art Mathias, founder of Wellspring Ministries in Anchorage, Alaska tells his scary and wonderful story! I transcribed these quotes:

“Fear is the opposite of faith. If I’m in fear and worry I am not trusting God. So I had to repent for the fear, go back into faith, start believing God’s promises, then the pain levels would come down. As I got rid of my bitterness, as I got rid of my resentments, as I learned how to forgive and really fall into obedience to the scriptures, then my fear went away, my physical body settled down, my immune system healed. Then my physical body healed.”

“Forgiving from our heart is a choice. … I purpose and I choose to forgive from my heart. And the tormentors*…. The only way we can get rid of those heavy, negative emotions….

“We see literally thousands of people healed every year as we teach them how to forgive.”

* The “tormentors” (Mt. 18 KJV) are actually demons. My article, which has changed minds on this key subject:

Can a Christian Have a Demon? Absolutely! Most Have Many!

Michael Brown admits modern Judaism is Phariseeism! — This is the revolutionary spirit that subverts society to bring in the NWO!

Michael Brown admitted yesterday that modern Judaism is based on the teachings of the Pharisees, who were the Talmudic Jewish leaders whom Jesus strongly verbally rebuked, saying: “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do” – John 8:44.

And Jesus warned us about the Pharisees, saying: “Watch out! … Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees” – Mt. 16:6!

– –

From “Dr. Brown Answers Your Best Questions, 6/28/19 @ minute-17:08:

A caller asked: “Are current day practicing Jews the descendants of the Pharisaic tradition?”

Michael responds: “That’s what they built on. In other words: a practicing Jew today, a rabbinic Jew looks back to the Pharisees as some of their founding fathers. Of course, they look back to Abraham, Moses, etc.. But yeah, the Pharisees would be looked at as their founding fathers, and that they would feel that the New Testament is very unfair to the Pharisees.”

Then Michael adds: “But I would say, #1: Jesus is pointing out the hypocrites. And #2: He sees a whole lot of things that we don’t see….”

The Pharisees followed the oral tradition that later was written down as the Babylonian Talmud and the Kabbalah. They believed the messiah will lead them into ruling over all non-Jews, and when Jesus rejected their commission, they rejected Him in the strongest way possible.

The Pharisees are the forerunners of today’s Talmudic and anti-Christ revolutionaries whom E. Michael Jones often talks about, saying that when the Jews rejected Christ, they rejected Logos, and became revolutionaries against Logos, and have become revolutionaries ever since.

Today, they are subverting society through their control of Hollywood and TV (TalmudVision), publishing, social media, music, porn, education, banking, our Congress and etc., pushing LGBTQ, radical feminism, illegal immigration, abortion, psychology, our wars for their Greater Israel Project and their Talmudic New World Order.

They’re getting ready to launch their antichrist from the third temple in Jerusalem, which many evangelicals are assisting, ignoring Paul’s clear warning in 2 Thess. 2 and Jesus’ warnings in Revelation.

1 Timothy 2:9

Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire,

Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.

“The Low-Cut Top Epidemic: May We Be Holy”

We must overcome: 

“Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

HOW to overcome:

“LUST ‘the poison that kills the soul’ FREEDOM! My experience: How DEMONS DRIVE heterosexual and homosexual lust in ‘Christians’ — When we realize demons drive lust we can be free!

 

It can be forgiven — but sometimes it requires reconciliation to be in Christ and free!

If you’ve prayed a repentance prayer and still don’t feel guilt free, sometimes saying a prayer is not enough. Sometimes we must reconcile to be free, to have no condemnation:

“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” – Romans 8:1

Jesus said:

If therefore you are offering your gift [lifting up ‘holy’ hands to the Lord] at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift [worshiping in Spirit and in truth].” – Mt. 5:23-24

This is why Paul was able to say:

“..I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” – Acts 24:16.

Where we spend eternity depends on this, but reconciliation will also bring in revival (when we’re ‘ONE’ in Christ – John 17):

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

…and healing:

Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” – James 5:16a

God is waiting to pour out His grace on us when we actually do Jesus’ greatest two commandments.
If our consciences condemn us, this probably isn’t the Devil, as many pastors teach. This is the Holy Spirit warning us to get right with each other so we can be clean and FREE from guilt — ‘ONE’ with each other!
To be going-to-heaven Christians and for Jesus to fill us with His joy and peace, we must be right with each other.
Let us be ‘ONE’ “that the world will know!”

"Seeker friendly services" founder, Bill Hybels retires after sexual harassment allegations — Lust in the heart alone disqualifies leaders who "must be blameless" • "Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" – Jesus

It starts with lust, which Jesus calls heart-adultery, which he said we must overcome at all costs. Matthew 5:27-30:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. “If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. “If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.

Even short, tight frontal hugs are sexual. I’ve seen pastors in Anchorage do full frontal, lingering hugs in front of everyone! Their wives and/or daughters wear low-cut tops, and post the photos on Facebook!
Most pastors are biblically disqualified for many reasons, and need to repent so real Christianity will happen “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer and promise in John 17):

China demolishes hundreds of churches and confiscates Bibles during a crackdown on Christianity
7 August 2018

  • Locals in Henan stated concerns of a move by the atheist ruling Community Party to control Christianity
  • Residents were asked to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ with portraits of President Xi Jinping
  • Experts say the government is waging the most severe systematic suppression of the religion since 1982
  • Chinese leaders have ‘always been suspicious of the political threat’ that Christianity poses to the regime

‘Chinese leaders have always been suspicious of the political challenge or threat that Christianity poses to the Communist regime,’ said Xi Lian, a scholar of Christianity in China at Duke University. ‘Under Xi, this fear of Western infiltration has intensified and gained a prominence that we haven’t seen for a long time.’

Officials once largely tolerated the unregistered Protestant house churches that sprang up independent of the official Christian Council, clamping down on some while allowing others to grow. But this year they have taken a tougher approach that relies partly on ‘thought reform’ – a phrase for political indoctrination.

Last November, Christian residents of a rural township in south-east Jiangxi province were persuaded to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ inside their homes with portraits of Xi, a local official said.

‘Through our thought reform, they’ve voluntarily done it,’ Qi Yan, a member of the township party committee, told the AP by phone. ‘The move is aimed at Christian families in poverty, and we educated them to believe in science and not in superstition, making them believe in the party.’  …

‘Xi is a closet Maoist – he is very anxious about thought control,’ said Willy Lam, a Chinese politics expert at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. ‘He definitely does not want people to be faithful members of the church, because then people would profess their allegiance to the church rather than to the party, or more exactly, to Xi himself.’

Various state and local officials declined repeated requests to comment. But in 2016, Xi explicitly warned against the perceived foreign threats tied to faith, telling a religion conference: ‘We must resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means.’
