Hate Speech

Darkness is spreading across the earth at light speed.

If darkness is the machine, then apostasy is the fuel.

Things that were once right are now wrong.

Things that were once wrong are now right.

Satan is rapidly gaining ground in the minds of millions by replacing God’s moral code with a false moral code of his own—through apostasy—turning away from the truth.

Satan does not have omnipotent creative power like that of the Lord God, so he counterfeits the works and ways of Almighty God. Since God has a true moral code mandated in His Word, Satan has a false moral code mandated in his world.

For those in the world who hate the truth of God, the ultimate goal has been accomplished: telling the truth is now defined as hate speech.

Hate speech is anything that speaks out against Satan’s false moral code. In Satan’s false moral code, everything has become twisted around backwards—inside out.

The opposite of truth is now truth—and truth is now hate.

Satan’s false moral code: The Greatest Sin of All – Hate Speech

Abortion = choice – truth.

Abortion = murder – misogynistic hate speech.

True Islam put into practice = a religion of peace – truth.

True Islam put into practice = religious fascism – Islamophobic hate speech.

True Christianity put into practice = hate speech – true.

True Christianity put into practice = love – hate speech.

Guns = kill people – truth.

Guns = defend people—people kill people – hate speech.

Unchecked Immigration = no issues at all – truth.

Unchecked Immigration = safety/infrastructure issues – xenophobic hate speech.

White people = all are born racists – truth.

White people = not all are born racists – hate speech.

Homosexuality = godly love – truth.

Homosexuality = sin – homophobic hate speech.

Truth that condemns Satan’s moral code is identified as hate speech. Anything that calls for repentance from what God identifies as sin is condemned as hate speech. How much longer will it be until the gospel is legally identified as hate speech?

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6).

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).

It has now become a thing of honor to declare your private sin out in the open in order to demand acceptance of your sin from your peers.

There may be private sins, but to make those sins public and to force others to accept them is against God’s Word:

“It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak” (Romans 14:21).

It’s wrong to go out and teach and preach what you formerly believed to be sin as now suddenly acceptable to God.

So many love to quote their favorite Bible verse completely out of context. They actually flaunt their love for sin as a holy boldness:

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

The meaning and context of this oft-quoted verse can be clearly seen by simply reading the very next verse.

It most certainly isn’t loving to cause others to sin. It most certainly isn’t bold to join in with the big crowd already accepting of your sin.

No… it’s actually powerful, loving, and courageous to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hostile and hateful world:

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God” (2 Timothy 1:7-8).

The apostle Paul did not suffer for promoting sin; he suffered for promoting the cure.

Those who call attention to their “courage” when identifying as homosexual are cowardly attempting to use sympathy as a covering for their blatant sin.

The longer that the last lost sheep our loving Heavenly Father has counted among the fullness of Gentiles is left wandering around without the gospel, is the longer we have to endure this sin-darkened planet.

“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 11:25).

The body of Christ needs to get up off its collective behind and find those last few precious lost sheep that the Father is patiently waiting to be found.

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise (of judgment), as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Soon the Lord will finally remove all of those who chose to be stumbling blocks within the paths of others who only wanted to follow Christ:

“The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:41-42).

The moment that last soul is saved—completing the numbered elect of the church age—the final show will begin.

Coming soon to a planet near you… God’s wrath.

“In flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed” (2 Thessalonians 1:8-10).

Rak Chazak! Battle Cry For Israel :: By Daniel Payne

Battle Cry For Israel

Below is an edited rehash because the time feels right again:

The world at large is full-on insane…no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Total insanity describes the situation currently and continuously faced by Israel as it relates to their treatment by the world at large. Think:

Rockets and terrorists from Gaza in the south; rockets and terrorists from the north; slander and double-talk from most countries on the earth; the BDS movement; the current 2020 Democratic presidential candidates; certain past presidents; most media outlets; the U.N.; most so called “Christian” churches; hundreds of millions of deceived zombies worldwide; Iran, Syria, Iraq, etc.

For Israel to surrender the West Bank and other sovereign territory “back” to their enemies is insane. The word “back” is in quotes because it has always been Israel’s possession in the first place─since it was ordained by God, but that doesn’t matter to the insane.

It would be insane for Israel to hand over any more territory than it already has.

The “international community” otherwise known as—the world—just can’t stop stomping its feet in the middle of Israel’s business. The fact that Jerusalem is split by the 1949 Armistice line—called “The Green Line”—in and of itself proves that the world has chosen to make Jerusalem a burdensome stone, just as the prophet Zechariah foretold:

“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zechariah 12:3).

The fact is that the world cannot understand Israel because it cannot understand God:

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14).

The world does not understand that the dispersion was part of God’s past judgment upon Israel. They cannot understand that Israel never voluntarily gave up its right to the land, and they don’t want to understand. In fact, they couldn’t care less.

The world court has ruled that Israel has violated international law by establishing new settlements in the land it recovered in the 1967 war. They brand it as “genocide,” “crimes against humanity,” “ethnic cleansing,” “a humanitarian crisis,” “war crimes,” etc. We’ve heard it all before ad nauseum. The world community deliberately ignores certain obvious facts that render its judgment illogical.

Facts like: centuries ago the land was sovereignly controlled by the Jewish people for centuries. Also, the non-Jewish people who currently occupy the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza have never held legitimate sovereignty over it in the first place. The only work Israel’s enemy has ever done toward attaining any sovereign control of their own is by intimidating through cowardly acts of terrorism.

On Thursday, November 29, 2012, the UN voted to “upgrade” the Palestinian Authority’s member status from “entity” to “non-member state.” The UN de facto recognition of a sovereign Palestinian state is the closest Israel’s enemy has ever come to having any semblance of sovereign control.

And that only just happened in 2012–thousands of years after Saul was anointed by the Lord and crowned Israel’s first king by Samuel in 1050 B.C.

“Now Samuel said to all Israel: ‘Indeed I have heeded your voice in all that you said to me, and have made a king over you. Now therefore, here is the king whom you have chosen and whom you have desired. And take note, the Lord has set a king over you’” (1 Samuel 12:1, 13).

Do the Jewish people not have a “right” to live on the same land as they already did before they were dispersed in generations past? Did they not have a right to exist before they were expelled by the Babylonians, the Romans, and finally defeated by Hadrian’s army in 135 AD?

For the insane world to claim that Israel is the thief of their own land is the same as saying the following:

While a family was away on a long trip from the home that they built, squatters decided to break into their home and take up residence. When the family finally returned from their trip, they kicked the squatters out of their home but were nice enough to let them camp out on their lawn.

Then the squatters started attacking the family by throwing rocks through their windows and occasionally breaking through the front door to kill a family member. While the family was fighting back against the squatters in self-defense, the state police showed up to arrest not the squatters—but the family!

There are earthly wars and there are spiritual wars. It is because of the spiritual war that I stand with Israel in its earthly war.

As having prior military service, I have to admit that a sense of adventure exists for me in Israel’s military might and continuous state of alert. It’s easy for me to want to join forces with the side whose course is set for ultimate victory.

The fact that God’s sovereign hand of miraculous protection will wipe out Israel’s enemies during the very soon judgment of the Day of the Lord gives me great confidence. The Lord only disciplines His own people—but He destroys their enemies!

Unfortunately, future battles lie in Israel’s path for peace, so will you join me in this battle cry for Israel? (Incidentally, the very reason you and I love Israel is also the very reason the world hates Israel. They don’t just hate Israel; they hate God.)

I stand with Israel because I stand with God! I love Israel because I love God! I love Israel because I believe in His prophecies! Israel will have the final victory!

“‘Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.’ Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, ‘Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it. And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed’” (Deuteronomy 31:6-8).

“And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: ‘Shout, for the LORD has given you the city!’” (Joshua 6:16).
