On this sixth anniversary of ChristianBlessings we affirm that Jesus Christ is Lord even though with every passing year, it seems that what was unthinkable in the world before, becomes shocking and what was shocking becomes acceptable.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. (Matthew 24:42)
‘Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.’ (1 Thessalonians 5:6)
‘But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.’ (1 Peter 4:7)
‘Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.’ (Revelation 3:3)
Thessalonians 2:9-12 …’Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.’
The Parliament of World Religions of Chicago has discovered a shared commitment to ethical principlesopening the way for a new era of cooperative action among the world’s religious and spiritual communities as well as civil and political societies.
Satan is causing global radical Islamist perpetrated death and destruction in order to unite both the civil and religious world under his banner, persecuting and beheading God’s true people who will not bow the knee to the beast system. Yet there is the merciful wave of the Lord’s salvation among the Islamists.
Is same-sex marriage, LGBT agenda a ‘strong delusion’? No, not at all, because the majority of professed Christians can clearly see that this is against the Word of God. The strong delusion and deception is the END GOAL of all this wickedness and trouble in the world …. UNITY WITH BABYLON! That is the deception, and that is what Satan’s agenda is with all this. It is interesting that ‘Christians’ who are rising up against these things like the LGBT agenda have no problem in going home and sitting in front of a wicked television program or film.
1000 priests have been ‘given special power’ by the pope to absolve people’s sin. We can all ‘forgive’ each other and we are actually called to do that, but only God can absolve sin. The pope and Roman Catholic Church puts itself IN PLACE OF God on earth. The Roman Church in fact ‘denies the Father and Son’ by claiming they have the power to do that which only God the Father and Jesus Christ can do – absolve sins!
Who is the ONLY ONE who has been given ‘power’ on earth? … Matthew 28:18 …’And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.’ … Jesus Christ, the son of God

As the window of opportunity for spreading the gospel will not remain open and as anti- Christian developments impart fear and even death all over the world, it behoves us all to
- hide God’s Word in our hearts
- keep ourselves fully armed with the Armour of God and filled with the Holy Spirit
- encourage one another here and by prayer and supplication and
- speed the Light at home, at work, in our social contacts at church, school and daily living and foreign gospel missions. .
Let us be watchful and obedient and hasten the coming of the Lord. Even so come Lord Jesus.
Let us just do it for Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
Blessings to all our Contributors of blogs, comments and all followers from all over the world. May the peace of God reign in your hearts in these challenging and turbulent times.
