What Manner Of Christians Ought We To Be?

Why am I writing on such topics as the following in the festive season so close to New Year? Not only because I've felt strongly to do so for a few months now but also, at the end of the year at this time, the Site Activity Report for this website shows me that the most read posts on my blog have to do with Poor Behavior. I have alerted you about worldly religions and some

'Christian' religions in my other post.

In this post, I will also cover some surprising things that some Christians are doing, unaccounted for - hidden and out in the open - so they can think twice and deal with those things because they're not kidding Jesus. How long have you been kidding yourself and saying that's alright?

Let's all start this New Year on a good note - leaving ways that offend The Lord and others behind us, a thing of the past. Don't take them with you and expect God's Best in your lives - if you do, the New Year won't make any difference. And for many of you: did you know it's the overlooked sins that could be hindering your prayers? If you are wondering why your prayers are not answered, start there.

The most read posts I referred to 85-90 views in December are as follows:

Behavior of Some Christians, What does Scripture have to Say about Them?

Christian Conduct, Offending Each-other, The Challenge, Needing Comfort?

To be Christlike, Ready for Jesus, Are You Spiritual?

The next three show what many are looking for this time of year 80-85 views.

Walking in Love, Precious Counsel, What Touches our Father?

True Ministries and Giftings, What is a Healthy Church?

Kindness of God, Light of God, His Presence, Conviction or Condemnation? Comforting Words.

Why are most of those views just preceding Christmas and immediately preceding New Year when most people are celebrating a Family Time and preparing for New Year?

That shows me that many are hurting because of people's wrong behavior patterns even in Churches - many do offend! That my friend, is a form of Christendom or Immature Behavior at best. Yet many of these same people want their prayers answered?

Colossians 3:12-15 Reads like this:

12 God has chosen you and made you His holy people. He loves you. So you should always clothe yourselves with mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Bear with each other, and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person because The Lord forgave you. 14 Even more than all this, clothe yourself in love. Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking, because you were all called together in one body to have Peace. Always be thankful. Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. (New Centurary Version)

This Post will be a Caution to Seekers and a Wake Up Call to Christians alike and bring comfort to some, that these matters are being addressed.

These are things we should all be aware of in these Last Days we are living in.

Because there is going to be a One World Government with a One World Religion.

Bible speaks of these establishments coming. They have been in development stages for some years as you will see in this post. I think it's wise not to get too caught up in it

as some "studies and info" about it can disturb our peace of mind.

We should all be ready for the Rapture when Jesus comes quickly

in the clouds.

Things taking Place

Governments are pushing for an Identity Card in many countries, steps are being taken for One World Currency, even Australia is considering a Cashless Society in 3 Years I was informed a week ago. Back in the 70s or 80s a Government worker resigned his position after discovering a secret DEMAC Building run by the Government that was so highly confidential, that even he as a government worker wasn't even allowed to know what the building was for and guards ordered him off the premises (his position isn't mentioned here). He went everywhere alerting Christians about this and shortly after that, we heard (quietly) from a Christian Senator that Australia was being considered as a Model for things leading up to a One World Order.

I'm not sure what developed from there.

Do you think that is a way off yet? It's sooner than you think friends. In the early to Mid 70s I was visiting One World Vision (a Christian charity) in the city one day and there was a temporary office next to theirs for World Council of Churches. They had a table full of literature they were promoting, and I wondered what it was all about. Just then, I picked up a booklet with hymns and witnessed some awful blasphemous words that one would not expect to see in a hymn book! "Did you say churches? Excuse me! Maybe I'm in the wrong place?"

Surprising Update In Australia: Universities are having Multi Religion Services now and Christian Bible Students are expected to attend. And much of the Bible Teaching is corrupted. Students are expected to complete all assignments if they offend or not. A Christian friend felt revulsion from so much of that, she felt compelled to leave.

She commenced Christian Bible Theology some years ago and has witnessed rapid changes over the last 2-3 Years. These Multi Religion Services are for all religions: Muslim, Buddhists, Hindus etc attending with Mainline Church people. To unbelievers, that would seem like a good thing but they all pray to different Gods

really and that turns worship of a One and Only Living God into a corrupt practice, not a godly one - certainly not Christian.

So where do you think Christian Churches in the main are going to go over the next few years? Already, part of the stage is set. I felt called out of the Church System 12 Years ago when a preacher went into a rage at me for asking him “not to rush the breaking of bread”……….he said it would continue the same. I said “I could not continue to partake anymore, it would be a sin”……….alarmed, he said “why would you say such a thing!?” and I replied “because the Cup scarcely gets to your lips and it is rushed away from you” and he verbally attacked me with rash accusations – supposedly from three Christians (reported to him). I asked who they were and he would not tell me (that is not a godly practice). I was distraught and left there saying I would not hold this against him but I would not be back either (for more). Puzzled that evening, I asked The Lord “who could they be!?” and He instantly showed me. Friends, this preacher was a Prophetic Pastor, practicing the Love of God for his flock when I first went there.

Things are changing, it’s all going Social Gospel now in many Christian Churches – the message of Repentance may offend! Yes that’s right, can you believe it?

Sorry to say, preachers like Joel Osteen lead the way in that. He is a close friend these days with OPRAH.

I have seen him attend her program, holding hands with her in agreement, in front of her audience, leading them into affirmations, he says in his church. I have also seen him in one of his church services, announcing ‘two important guests’ OPRAH and a Gay Actor. He says “you guys are doing a great work!” and welcomes a round of applause for them. Careful who you follow - you should be following JESUS!

John MacArthur Rebukes Joel Osteen

If you don’t believe me when I say these things to you, check them out on YouTube – these telecasts are out in the open for all the world to see. No shame, absolutely none!

Kenneth Copeland, the well-known Bible Preacher, noted for his passion in turning over those pages, helps to instigate One World Religion! He is seen in a big religious event with a Catholic Bishop in agreement with him when the Bishop informs the people present “if you are all born-again, you are Catholics, you are born again.” And Kenneth reports to his church following shortly after “we have made a big mistake! Things went wrong at the Reformation and the Church got divided.”

Friends, that’s when Salvation and Repentance was preached, is it not? And the Church began to come out of the errors of Catholicism: purgatory and limbo, praying to saints and worshipping Mary? Yes, it's all happening - you can't afford to have any Sacred Cows now (ministers you think keep the Truth and will never change).

One video I saw about The Wealthiest Preachers (or similar title) shows several preachers standing and chatting at a big function who obviously had just been drinking expensive alcohol beverages (at your expense) they looked like Actors at their worldly events. They looked drunk with wealth: appearance and expressions. I remember saying to myself “These are preachers? Did the video get mixed up? So to speak and I could not watch anymore, it made me feel sick. But I have a photographic memory and can picture them to this day. I could have given you the link if I kept it – you would not believe your eyes!


A HOT IRON” 1 Timothy 4:2


FOR SOME TIME (mostly on the Pentecostal church scene) AND WE HAVE


True discernment is called for here - The Lord does not want you to be ignorant.

If someone disappoints (a preacher you like does not really follow The Lord anymore)

let it go and "depart from them" like the Bible says.

Let's Be Choosy

The days are gone when every book you see in a Christian Bookstore is truly Christian

(a godly standard) It has been that way for quite some years and many Christians

fail to observe the difference. For instance, many of Joseph Prince and Joel Osteen

books are sold at Word Books and Koorong Bookstores in Australia - they

bring in good profit and can be seen Online. There are many others too, leading

God's Children astray.

Do you really want to buy titles like those now after what you've found out in this Post?

Not me! And a few CDs I had previously from them years ago have been thrown out.

My home library is for Jesus' standards, no-one else' hirelings here!

So as the old adage says "you can't judge a book by it's cover" stands true, some

of the titles sound quite acceptable but many lines written therein are not. It's really

quite subtle - like many products in the supermarket where there are good sounding

labels on the front and hidden contents on the back label. So be a discerning buyer

because the front and back cover can sound good and all manner of subtleties

are found in those pages that will lead you into compromised standards, the Bible

calls sin. We must try not to be by-products of such 'ministries' whether it be

sermons or books, please be careful. I'm not wrong by telling you this. JESUS SAID.

Matthew 7:13-27

13 Enter through the narrow gate (that’s Jesus, loving Him with all you heart and mind and strength) For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. (that’s mixing the ways of the world with your Christian walk or the lifestyle many Televangelists preach about and promote) 14 But straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to Life, and few are those finding it. (everyone responds to social gospel but not many want a really close relationship with Jesus).

15 Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. (watch out for them, like The Lord and Apostle Paul told us to. So many Christians don’t do this) 16 By their fruit you can/will recognise them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? (many of these entice you with Bible verse money schemes and making false promises to you in God’s name they take in vain and you listen to them)

17 Likewise, every (truly) Good tree bears Good (genuine) fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (so many hidden things about these preachers are out in the open now and are really quite shocking) 18 A Good tree cannot bear (this) bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear Good (godly) fruit. (good preachers will always direct your hearts and minds to The Lord. They do not keep double standards) 19 Every tree that does not bear (truly) Good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (we need to take heed to our walk with Jesus too) 20 So therefore, by their Fruit you will recognise them (do this, don’t have favorites and say they’re ok or favourite sins, thinking The Lord won’t mind)”

…22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ (many Pentecostal preachers here)

23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of iniquities!’ (the word iniquities in Greek means a deceitful bow. Jesus said workers of iniquities - they're skilled in it) 24 Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them is like a wise man who built his house on the Rock (Jesus is speaking about His Words, not preacher’s words, even the good ones) 25 The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds came and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because its foundation was on the Rock (His Promise to those who build their lives on Him only) 26 But everyone who hears these Words of Mine and does not act on them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand (many pastors and evangelists dish out shifting sand and encourage you to look to them and their teaching) 27 The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its collapse!” (this speaks of the adversities many face and can’t handle them or even give up on Jesus and fall away because there’s no staying power in shifting sand).

Meaning a compromised walk with Jesus or leaving the scripture reading etc up to the

pastor or someone you fancy.

Things I Have Seen Among Christians

Do not be surprised if I tell you, I've known or met Christians who have had multiple marriage partners; two Christians who went to services together who were previously married to members of that church - still present in the church; someone who left her husband, did not let him know where his children were and lied in court that he messed with the kids, so she would not have to see him at all (you have to place your hand on a Bible here when you give true or false evidence) there is another Christian lady who lives defacto with an unbeliever - she has had a spiritual disposition, she knows what she is doing - and she is running for Parliament with a Christian Party; another Christian who lies like a trooper and keeps breaking her word and making excuses because she kept doing her own thing instead of what she rashly promised; a niece who kept using her senior aunty, to offload heavy problems over 2-3 hour phone calls and expressed little to no interest in how her aunty was and what she was doing, multiple phone calls and texts unanswered and whenever she was happy, she did not find the need to call; three Christian women who overworked their husbands long hours like slaves for material gain - nothing was enough for them, they always wanted more; a Christian lady runs a recipe website with a subtitle that says Vegan Food Porn, who often mentions about living for Jesus; I've met someone on two different occasions who said that a Christian Health Practitioner and a Christian Tradesman were ripping them off on an ongoing basis for their services; I've met Christians who have been addicted to pretty bad Soapy Programs on TV ...... two Christian women who said how much they loved Jesus often - each of them also told me they watch programs like Murder She Wrote and couldn't wait for the weekly episode to come on; two Church People who took advantage of a Christian couple to invest in business ventures and cleared off with big sums of money - they were unwell and about to retire and had to work extra years; there is a Christian church I know that is filled with busybodies and malicious gossips; many Christians swear when 'they feel like it' and reckon that's ok .......... I could go on.


All this while, when many Christians are behaving so badly, preachers over 'Christian TV' are telling Christians things like "The Lord is Coming Soon to take the Church".........really? Scripture tells me He is Coming for His Bride and Jesus made it perfectly clear to us who that Bride will be.......without any spot or wrinkle or blemish (spiritually speaking) "Five maids were ready with Oil in their lamps, five were Not"

they were living with sins undealt with, in love with the things of this world, whatever.

No, I don't water things down, as the saying goes. You will not find Social Gospel on this website. Unlike many of those Televangelists who say "Lord, Lord......." and sin like the devil. You're going to take their word for who will be present in the Rapture are you? Can I say something a little offensive here? If you dust off

your Bible and take a closer look at the Words of Jesus, concerning His Coming and get the real picture, you can find it absolutely Life Changing - if you're not too lethargic to do that. We need to shake that lethargy off, we really do.

The question is, what does The Lord say about all these things (above) and others not mentioned? Not what I'm saying to you but Jesus saying to us. Do those things make Him happy? The Holy Spirit just showed me an allegory for us, that "tolerated sins are like a deodorant, the more we use it, the more immunity builds up and we find ourselves not caring about it." So true, isn't it? We all have our favorite sins (big or small).

He sometimes interrupts me with distinct words or an illustration of some kind when I'm writing.

Since these things are taking place and Jesus' Coming is Close,

what manner of Christians ought we to be? Follow Jesus.

I like the manner a Christian friend spoke to me about reading one of my recent articles. When mentioning she liked it very much, she also said "she is working on a few things with The Lord." I like that.

Jesus' Words In John 15

1“I AM the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. 2 Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Abide IN ME, and I IN YOU. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless YOU Abide IN ME"

John 14:21

New Living Translation Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them."

If you love me, you will do what I have said, and my Father will love you. I will also love you and show you what I am like.

New American Standard Bible "He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him."

So often, it has concerned me over the years how many Christians ask each-other "What Church do you go to/belong to?"........."Whose ministry do you sit under?"........"Whose your covering?" The emphasis is wrong,

it really is! Everything is centered around man!

In these verses above, Jesus is speaking about something much more intimate.

He is referring to Himself as the Vine, not a church or even the Body of Christ -

He is speaking about YOU and HIM......and HIMSELF as your TEACHER.

And He is speaking about the True Love For Him, He is looking for in us.

Man is Not your Covering, that is actually not Scriptural

and risky too in these End-Times.

But The Lord Himself is shown in Scripture to be our Covering.

YES, Stay Close To JESUS

And Keep His Love Commandments!

The Bride of Christ will not consist of preachers who are kidding us or we who are kidding ourselves. Make no mistake about that but many are!
