Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
For this piece, I wanted to talk about something that has been on my mind and heart lately, and that is about ‘breaking out of the proverbial mold.’ Like it or not, we are all being ‘played, programmed, duped, and brainwashed’ each and every minute of every hour of every day! With this ‘so-called’ Election, I am starting to see how the American people and our emotions are being ‘played.’ What with the powers that be and their constant ‘Good Guy vs Bad Guy Narrative, the Left vs Right Wing ongoing Dog and Pony Show, and the incessant WWE Verbal Smackdowns’ streaming nonstop on our media and newsfeeds every single tiring day! All of this is making it easier to believe in the ‘conspiracy’ of the Selection process vs the ‘so-called’ Election one… but I digress.
Ridiculous does not even begin to describe this ‘inciting nonsense,’ which is only designed to bring about the most rioting and maximum amount of upheaval and violence possible. Unfortunately, that is what they want. Sadly, many are either buying into this playbook narrative ‘hook, line, and sinker’ and/or are grossly absent of any ‘godly discernment whatsoever’ to be able to see the forest for the trees!
Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
Talk about being ‘programmed,’ the more I learn, the more I realize how much I do not know or understand! On this side of eternity, we will not ‘have it all figured out,’ but I am starting to wrap my mind around the fact that most, if not all, of the holidays that we celebrate are ‘utterly pagan.’ Meaning that the Roman Catholic System took the pagan celebrations, origins, and traditions and simply ‘Christianized’ them by attaching a ‘Jesus Stamp’ on them, if you will, thereby ‘sanitizing them down enough’ to make these wicked traditions ‘palatable’ enough for Christians to assimilate and acclimate into.
The truth is that our American churches are so ‘watered-down’ from God’s Word and in how we should honor Him that we have literally been robbed of learning about the Jewish Feast Days that God ordained in the Bible. That is not to say that we who are in the New Testament Church Age are under these Feast Days, but I am of the opinion that I would rather learn about these Feast Days and their practices instead of the pagan ones that we are so programmed by the powers that be to practice today!
It is also to my recent knowledge that these Jewish Feast Days have not been completely done away with because we will still be observing them throughout our time in the coming Millennial Kingdom! Therefore, it would be a better use of our ‘short time here’ to learn about these God-honoring celebrations and practices instead of participating in the overtly pagan ones that virtually have nothing to do with Christ whatsoever!
Again, do the research. You will be surprised at how duped the whole world has been! December 25th is not Jesus’ birthday; it is actually the celebration of a pagan sun god deity and his birthday. Easter (Ishtar), along with the bunny and eggs, represents the pagan fertility goddess and its practices. Instead, we should honor God by observing it only as Christ’s Resurrection day. Halloween (Samhain) and Valentine’s Day (Lupercalia) are overtly perverse and satanic, along with many other ‘seemingly benign holidays’ that we are so programmed to observe and celebrate. Look all of this up for yourself; it may actually surprise you!
Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
2020 will be the first year that we will not acknowledge ‘Christ-Mass’ by putting up a tree and participating in all of the ‘traditions of men.’ Furthermore, everywhere one looks, this ‘commercialized and consumer-driven’ holiday is peddled and pushed as if they know that we will all acquiesce, because they find us as mainly a bunch of mindless ‘cookie cutter clones’ who will do whatever is foisted upon us! Well… not this ‘sheeple’… not this year… because we are slowly but surely ‘breaking out of this foolish mold’! Fact is, there will always be more truth for us to learn and uncover until we are able to finally go home because this fallen world lies in the power of the lying one!
Matthew 4:17 “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Speaking of ‘Christ-Mass’ and being duped or brainwashed, one only has to walk through any retailer and see toys peddled for children that have no place being there from a ‘godly discernment standpoint.’ What with all the magic, occult, witchcraft, and sorcery playing cards aimed at boys by the self-checkout aisles, to the strategically placed alphabet letters (using the Lord’s Name in vain) fashion dolls aimed at girls in the center and toy aisles. If parents cannot see that these types of toys are ‘utterly detrimental’ to their kids’ spiritual wellbeing, then the best thing I can say is to pray for God’s Wisdom and Discernment to help guide you!
On that note, I agree with Missionary Pastor Spencer Smith, who often gets buffeted on his YouTube channel by online Pharisees for being ‘too judging and legalistic’ by calling out sin and for saying, “There is no such thing as being Legalistic; there are only those who want to live a Holy life and those who want to live a Compromised one! Those who want to live a Compromised life are the ones who accuse those of us who want to live a Holy one of Legalism!” Could not have said it better myself, Pastor Spencer!
1 Peter 1:15-17 “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. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear.”
So, for those who want to live an Uncompromised and Holy life, I say break out of the ‘cookie-cutter production assembly line that is the proverbial mold’ by doing your own due diligence, by researching and learning all you can about the things of God and not by complying to what we are told and/or programmed to do! May we acquiesce and conform no more! True Freedom is in knowing the Truth… for the Truth shall set you free!
John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Until next time… Maranatha!
JESUS = THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE!
Yeshua Will Come!
