How to go to Hell… Do Nothing!

How to Go to Hell Rev 22: 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. […]

How to Go to Hell

Rev 22: 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

go-to-hell

The word sorcerers used here is pharmakos (far-mak-os’ )

the same as 5332; ; adj

AV-sorcerer 1; 1

1) pertaining to magical arts

sorcerors

Another version states: pharmakos is ‘one who administers mind altering potions’.

Phew! Opens the door to a whole lot of people in today’s society.

Obviously, it means witch doctors and medicine men, but now we have the drug dealer on the corner, the one who runs the crack house across town.

But what about the tavern or bar owner, the bartender that serves alcohol to drunks, making merchandise of their addiction. Of course it must include the crooked doctors and pharmacists, that prescribe ‘recreational pharmaceuticals’, drugs to attempt to medicate hurting folks who actually need God, not another prescription. These people, will not enter the kingdom of God.

Then there are ‘whoremongers’ pornos por’-nos This is the word from which we get the modern word pornography, or porno movies. It describes: 1) a man who prostitutes his body to another’s lust for hire 2) a male prostitute 3) a man who indulges in unlawful sexual intercourse, a fornicator. Looks like the seductive lure of pornography, the immorality of the party scene, and actual prostitution, will keep a person out of heaven.

I think the terms murderers, and liars are self explanatory, these have no part in the kingdom of God, makes me think of the end of crooked politicians, businessman, and now I am discovering, supposed ministers of the gospel.

“and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Those that lie, and love the result of a lie, will go to hell.

idolatry

Now, let’s look at the actual definition of ‘idolater’ here. 1) a worshipper of false gods, an idolater

1a) used of any one even Christian, participant in any way in the worship of the heathen, esp. one who attends their sacrificial feasts and eats of the remains of offered victims”

This sounds horrible right? Yet, now we discover that aborted human fetuses are being processed and added to make-up, and are possibly used in the food and supplement industry: http://www.skepticfiles.org/mys2/deadbaby.htm

2) a covetous man as a worshipper of Mammon

Money makes a tremendous tool and servant, but a lousy god. It must be mastered, and governed by the Lordship of Jesus and leadership of the Holy Spirit: Worshipped, it will drag a person to hell.

I have written much on the topic of riches and wealth, because I am convinced that God wants to prosper us financially, His way. https://chrisaomministries.com/2016/02/26/money-simply-makes-more-of-you/

These things I mentioned, are ways to go to hell, but Jesus loves you, and came to forgive – His mission forever will be to seek and save the lost: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/the-gospel-the-power-of-god/

Lets pray

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, purify me of all my lying ways and deeds. Have mercy upon me, and forgive me where I have given myself to these things. Deliver me from the power of them, and cleanse me of all my uncleanness’s. In your name I pray Lord Jesus. Amen’

Children – Obey Your Parents IN THE LORD

It is the responsibility of parents to raise their children in the training, nurture and admonition of the Lord, in love.

“In raising our children we replace innocence, with purity” – Kellie Copeland

Ephesians (NASB)

Family Relationships

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right

Notice this says for children to obey their parent ‘IN THE LORD’. For this is right.

Ephesians_6-1

As I have traveled, and seen broken homes and families, I have seen children asked to do horrible things: steal, perform sexual acts, lie, cuss, go to the store to buy parents smokes, smoke dope, cheat, etc.

every child

Jesus is the Lord, and He is holy!

He hates parents that instruct their children to do evil!

Matthew 18:6

[ Causing to Stumble ] “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Yet, I teach children to obey their parents, to love, honor and respect them.

To do their homework, clean their rooms, do household chores, joyfully as unto Jesus, to put a smile on His face.

Proverbs 20:11

Even small children are known by their actions, so is their conduct really pure and upright?

He knows, He cares, He loves, and He blesses obedience and honorable actions.

Yet, if any adult, parent, or otherwise tells you to do evil – you are NOT required to obey them!

children tell truth

What has this looked like, in my 25 years of ministering to children?

Some very complicated situations, when children come to me and tell me of a mother or father doing drugs or drinking, and  we pray!

parents off drugs

I have watched Jesus answer those pure hearted prayers of children, very, very quickly and powerfully.

Whether adults, or children, if we have received Jesus, we have been adopted into God’s family, and are children of God.

John 1:12 (NIV)

12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

We are never required to obey anyone instructing us to do wrong, ever…

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I think of all the children who are being taught evil by parents who are not serving you. I pray you deliver these children from evil! Show them Your love, protection, deliverance, truth, and holiness, so deeply that they might walk in purity, holiness, and honor before you. Where parents are doing wrong to their children, stop them, whatever it takes, and may children be given Your gift of courage to do what is right, even if their parents are setting a wrong example. I ask this Father, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen.’

The Pig Pen or the Big Pen?

The Prodigal Son: Pig Pen, or the Big Pen?

prodigal pigs
I remember when we first started our church up in Ottawa, we had no place to meet, so we met in a football change house in Debra Dynes community. At the time, Debra Dynes, was one of the illicit drug capitals of the city, and as we would leave our little Bible studies, there would be gang bangers hanging around smoking dope, high as a kite, and initially, they nick named me ‘Preach’.
“ Hey Preach, they would taunt, what’s the Word of the day?”
My wife, who had never been involved in the drug scene, would encourage me to walk away from these mockers, but I would always stop, get in the midst of the 30 or so tweaking and bouncing freaks, and preach to them the love of Jesus.
This went on for awhile, so they changed my nickname from ‘Preach’ to ‘Jesus’, and it got kind of comical hearing them, ‘Hey Jesus! What’s the Word of the Day?’

word of the day
They thought they were pretty smart, laughing at me in my suit with my Bible. I remember one bold gang member trying to put a joint to my lips saying: ‘Here preach, take a hit, looks like you had a pretty tough week.” I saw in this teen actual compassion, he was so messed up, he thought he was seriously trying to help me!
One night, I felt the Holy Spirit come upon me, and I proclaimed: ‘Hey guys, I got a word for you, straight outta the good Book’
At that time, one of my friends who served as the prison chaplain, was on a six week sabbatical, and had asked me to cover services for him in the youth detention block of the local prison. I spent a most of the day each Thursday going from cell block to cell block holding a series of youth services, preaching, praying, and referring for counseling the youth that had been arrested that week.
As these gangsters were cutting up and trying to blow dope smoke in my face, I read them the story of the prodical son. Made it plain: How the young man in the story couldn’t wait until his dad died to get his inheiratance, but wanted his money now. Basically saying to his dad, ‘I wish you were dead’, and his wise, and heartbroken father, actually gave him his money, and the boy went on a spending spree of wine, women and song. Yet, the money ran out, and there came a recession in the country, and his so called friends all left him high and dry. The only thing the boy knew was farming, so he got himself a job slopping hogs, working on a pig farm,that paid so little, that he was so hungry he thought about eating the pig slop. Finally, the young man came to himself in the pig pen, and realized that even the hired hands at his fathers ranch were paid better, and treated better, and then he realized he had sinned against God and his father. He decided that if he was going to have to work for someone, that his father was a better boss than this pig farmer, and he decided to go home. His father saw him coming,

 

and ran out to meet him, and he said ‘Father, I have sinned against God and you, please hire me as a servant in your house.” Yet, the boy had no idea how much his father loved him, and his father brought the best robe, shoes, and placed the family ring again on his finger, and said, ‘My son who was dead,prodigal father is now alive, he has come home’ and he killed the fatted calfand threw a big party for him.
It had gotten quiet in that circle for a minute, and I looked these hardened criminals in the eyes and said: ‘Boys, God loves you, and you have a Father in heaven that has a wonderful plan for your life. He wants you to come home. Though you may not see it yet, right now, you are in the pig pen, partying, thinking there are no consequences for your actions. Tonight, I pray you listen to me, and give your life to Jesus, but if you do not, know this: Every Thursday this summer, I will be holding services in the youth detention block of the jail, if you will not hear me here, in the pig pen, maybe you will listen to me downtown, in the big pen.’
Uproarious laughter! To their drug induced minds, this was the funniest story they ever heard!
“Give me five preach! Pig pen or Big Pen!, preach got lines!” they said, thinking I was joking.
Yet, one week later, I guess narcotics officers raided one of their crack houses, and when I went in to the prison, there they all were, looking like lost puppies, heads hung low, broken.
So, I laughed and said:
“Come on boys, to chapel. I still have good news for you. God still loves you, and Jesus is still the way out of this place. You wouldn’t listen to me in the pig pen, and here we are together, in the big pen.’
To the glory of God, all of those boys accepted Jesus that day, and many were set free of addictions, healed in their bodies, and some were filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.’
Over the next year or so, I was able to work with their families, foster care, the chaplain and the courts, to get many of these help they desperately needed to make a clean break with a life of crime. To God be the glory!
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, help me to be unafraid of reaching out in love to people that look scary, or who are obviously criminals. Give me special faith, to love them in the midst of their mess, out of the pig pen, big pen, and back into your house of grace, honor, and mercy. Show them your love, power, and plan for their lives, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
