JIM BAKKER: GET READY FOR APOCALYPSE


Charlotte Observer: Three decades after his PTL empire near Charlotte crumbled amid financial and sex scandals, Jim Bakker is back on TV with a different, darker message:

The Apocalypse is coming and you better get ready.

Ready to be judged by God, sure. But the main mission of “The Jim Bakker Show” – broadcast from a Christian compound deep in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri – appears to be to sell you fuel-less generators, doomsday guidebooks and freeze-dried food with a shelf-life of up to 30 years. more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: I have often wondered if those Christians who embrace Amillennialism or Post-Millennialism, or Preterism, have a garage full of what Bakker is selling. I picture personal mini-warehouses just loaded with tribulation gear, despite the preponderance of Scripture that indicates the Church of Jesus Christ will not be on earth when it happens.

Post-Millennialists and Amillennialists have no place for a rapture, as described by Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, 1:10, 5:9. Many who adhere to these doctrines believe the final war of Armageddon has already occurred (Preterism).

“Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive, ah, ah, ah, ah,” Bakker’s daughter, Tammy Sue, now 47, sang on one show as her dad promoted buckets of long-lasting emergency food. That day’s “Staying Alive” special: Ten buckets, with 2,410 servings, for a $600 donation plus shipping.

To be sure I have had several debates on this website with Post/Amillennialists. I find that in most cases there is a misinterpretation of Matthew 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.”

A careful reading of Matthew 24, however, will reveal that Jesus is speaking to His Jewish disciples and that the church is not in existence, which becomes clear in Matthew 24:15-16:

“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand),“then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”

The Jews are in Judea – not the church.

For some reason, some Christians just cannot wrap their mind around a literal rapture despite at least 5 references to types of raptures in both the OT and NT:

  • Enoch: Genesis 5:21-24
  • Elijah: 2 Kings 2: 11-14
  • OT Saints: Matthew 27:51-53
  • Church: 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
  • Two Witnesses: Revelation 11:11-12

And even more evidence that the bride of Christ is absent from the trial comes from Jesus Himself:

“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from (Greek ἐκ ‘out of’) the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” Revelation 3:10

LHWM Opinion: We also want to add that if you have food or gear saved up what makes you think the government or One World Order will not come and take what you posses for scripture clearly tells us that “Revelation 13:17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

In order for there to be a ONE WORLD ORDER they must be in charge and scripture tells us that “Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

New Paul Movie Aims to Show Audiences ‘Where Sin Abounds, Grace Abounds More’


Photo Credit: paulmovie.comA young Saul of Tarsus led the charge in wiping out Christians until his journey to Damascus was interrupted by a blinding light and a voice from heaven.

This remarkable transformation is portrayed in the new major motion picture Paul, The Apostle of Christ, opening in theaters nationwide on March 23.

There has never before been a theatrical feature film about the life of Paul. Next, to Jesus, no one played a more central role in the growth of the early church. Paul and Luke wrote a significant part of the New Testament.

The producers of this inspirational movie hope to show audiences that where sin abounds, grace abounds more…. more

Atheist Activist Group Wants Courthouse Scripture Mural Removed


FINDLAY, Ohio — One of the nation’s most conspicuous professing atheist activist organizations has sent a letter to the clerk of the Findlay, Ohio municipal court to claim that a displayed mural referencing Psalm 91 violates the U.S. Constitution.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) says that it was contacted by a “concerned citizen,” who advised that a large mural in the courthouse features artwork of an eagle and the phrase, “Under His wings shall you find refuge—Psalms 91.”

“The Establishment Clause in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits government sponsorship of religious messages,” wrote FFRF Legal Director Rebecca Markert…. more

Illinois: Pro-Hijab Propaganda on Billboards


Chicago’s WGN reported Monday that “a local Islamic group launched a billboard campaign Monday to educate people about the hijab, the headscarf that’s often worn by Muslim women. The billboards are the first of their kind in the country, designed by a group called GainPeace, which encourages non-Muslims to call the organization and ask questions to gain a better understanding of why women wear the hijab. The billboards draw a similarity to the Christian religion where Mary is considered the mother of Jesus. She also wore a hijab.”

As if that weren’t enough smooth deception for one day, the article quotes Sara Ahmed, a GainPeace volunteer, saying: “Wearing the hijab is 100 percent my choice. As contrary to the popular belief, hijab in no way oppresses us. In fact, it indicates the opposite as hijab symbolizes the power to women, and not inferiority.”

Is that so?

First, let’s consider the source…. more

School Mass Shootings and Why They Are Really Happening


I was making dinner one afternoon in the fall of 1987, when I heard a frantic knocking at my door. It was my son’s teacher – I had just seen her earlier that day while volunteering in the classroom.

I opened the door and I could see that she had been crying.  She was shaking as she told me that the father of a boy in their class had been in a horrible car accident and they didn’t know whether he would survive. She told me that this little boy’s mother had abandoned him and his dad years before.

What she said next shook me to my core. She told me that she wanted to pray with the children for the boy’s dad but that she knew that she could lose her job  for doing that…. more

She spoke what was in our hearts concerning taking God out and people blaming God. What happened in Florida is very sad indeed but hardly anyone is connecting the dots of you cannot serve two masters.

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

We allowed one or two people to make decisions for our nation!!!! Now is the time to stand in the Lord and allow Him to work through us. I am your humble slave!!!!!!!!!!!

Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ (Study Guide Included)The most profound reality for every believer is a relationship with Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, our teacher, and our friend. But the Bible teaches that at the most basic level Jesus is our Lord, our Master, which means we are His slaves…. more

Faith Works by Love


Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

When I read this I did not know what it meant.

Do you think faith works by love? 
Do you know what this means? 
How does faith work by love?
Are faith and love always together?

The Purpose Of Faith

Hebrews 11:1 ESV And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Saving faith is the only way to please God and faith is not alone.

1 Corinthians 13:13 ESV So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Here we have hope added to faith and love. These three will endure forever in believers. Of these three the greatest is love.

greatest – 3173 – megas – a thing to be highly esteemed for its excellence, equivalent to excellent. (Thayer’s Greek Lexicon)

Do you value God’s love as the excellence in your life?.. more

‘It Just Didn’t Feel Right’: Vigilant Flight Attendant Saves Two Teen Girls From Sex Trafficking Plot


Image: GettyDenice Miracle has an oh-so-appropriate last name.

She was in the right place, at the right time and ended up saving two young teen girls , ages 15 and 17, who were duped into thinking they’d just landed a dream modeling gig. But if she wasn’t alert or diligent, these girls would likely be long gone.

The girls had met a man named “Dre” on Instagram, who bought them first class tickets to New York City and promised them $2,000 in cash to do some modeling. The girls told each of their parents that they were sleeping at their friends house, in order to escape for the weekend to New York. When police told them what was really going to happen, they were both reportedly “shocked” and seemed to have no clue at what they were likely walking into…. more
