Matthew 14:24-25: but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night He [Jesus] came to them, walking on the sea.

26. Only God is the Holy, Holy, Holy One Whose glory fills the whole earth:

Isaiah 6:1-3: In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”

John 12:37-41: Though He [Jesus] had done so many signs before them, they still did not believe in Him, so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “Lord, who has believed what he heard from us, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe. For again Isaiah said, “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.” Isaiah said these things because he saw His [Jesus'] glory and spoke of Him [Jesus].

27. Only God possesses everlasting dominion:

Psalm 145:13: Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all His words and kind in all His works.

Daniel 7:13-14: I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.

Mark 14:61-64: But He remained silent and made no answer. Again the high priest asked Him, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And Jesus said, “I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” And the high priest tore his garments and said, “What further witnesses do we need? You have heard His blasphemy.”

28. Only God has a judgment seat we must all appear before:

Romans 14:10: For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God

2 Corinthians 5:10: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ

29. Only God will judge everyone:

Acts 17:30-31: The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed; and of this He has given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead.

2 Timothy 4:1: I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, Who is to judge the living and the dead

To Him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.

Revelation 17:14: They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him are called and chosen and faithful.

31. Only God reconciled the world to Himself:

2 Corinthians 5:18-19: All this is from God, Who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.

Isaiah 44:6: Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: “I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no god.”

The Most Terrifying Hymn Lyrics I've Ever Read - Standing Outside

Judgment is surely coming, coming to you and me
We will be judged that morning, for all eternity
Some will go into heaven, others will be denied
Will you be in that number, standing outside?

Standing outside the portals, standing outside denied
Knowing that with the demons, ever you shall abide
Never to share the beauty, awaiting the sanctified
Oh! what an awful picture, standing outside.

Standing outside while loved ones, enter the pearly gate
Knowing that there forever, you will then separate
To be away from loved ones and by our God denied
Oh! what an awful picture, standing outside?

Can you not see the picture of those who're lost in sin
Standing outside the portals, without a hope to win
Soul-crushed with deepest sorrow, without a friend to guide
Oh! what an awful picture, standing outside.

Only One Life, ‘Twill Soon Be Past, Only What’s Done For Christ Will Last!

Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgement seat;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
Living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

When this bright world would tempt me sore,
When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way,
Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Give me Father, a purpose deep,
In joy or sorrow Thy Word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife,
Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Oh let my love with fervor burn,
And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say, “Thy will be done”
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

To Be Pro-Choice Is To Be Pro-Murder And Anti-Christ

Premise #1: It is wrong to intentionally kill innocent human beings.
Premise #2: Abortion intentionally kills innocent human beings.
Conclusion: Therefore, abortion is morally wrong. Scott Klusendorf

It's tragic this needs to be said to the Christian Church: to be pro-choice is to be pro-murder and anti-Christ. But that it does need to be said reveals the truth of what Jesus said would happen when He returns. Many, many people who think they are Christians but do not actually believe what Christ taught or seek to follow Christ's example will be cast into hell:

   . . . when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? Luke 18:8

Not everyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?" And then will I declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness." Matthew 7:21-23

I can assure you that those who have true, genuine, saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and are doing the will of His Father Who is in heaven do not support the mass execution of innocent children by abortion. Sadly, one poll found that almost half (44%) of American Christians believe the Bible is ambiguous on abortion.

Polls like this and men who claim to be pastors yet are pro-choice prove Jesus' Words are very true:

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7:13-14

If you are reading this article, and you claim to be a Christian, and yet you consider yourself to be pro-choice, I hope and pray that you will read this, repent, and trust in Jesus Christ alone by faith alone before you face Him on that great day of judgement lest you hear Him say those most frightening words: "I never knew you; depart from me!" There will be no excuses, and there will be no mercy on that day. The pro-choice, pro-abortion position is the most wicked, evil, vile, godless, antichrist political position in the history of mankind. What is worse than supporting the murder of millions of innocent children?

1. The Bible clearly and explicitly forbids murder (killing a human being unjustly):

You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13

2. The Bible clearly and explicitly teaches that (a) A child in the womb is a human being made in God's image and is known by God; (b) God is knitting that child together in the womb for His own glory; and (c) Life is life in the womb such that if the child dies in the womb, a life is lost and the mother is thought of as a grave for the child:

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah 1:5

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:13-16

For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave . . . . Jeremiah 20:17

Even science shows us that life begins at conception or fertilization. In one study, an overwhelming majority of biologists (95%, even including pro-choice biologists!) affirm that life begins at fertilization:

Steven Jacobs was a University of Chicago Ph.D. candidate who recently successfully defended his dissertation, "Balancing Abortion Rights and Fetal Rights: A Mixed Methods Mediation of the U.S. Abortion Debate." For his research, Jacobs recruited 5,502 academic biologists to participate in his thesis study, "Biologists' Consensus on 'When Life Begins.'" The biologists identified themselves as "very pro-choice, very pro-life, very liberal, very conservative, strong Democrats and strong Republicans."

After five years, the research showed that 95 percent (5212 out of 5502) of the biologists affirmed the biological view that a human's life begins at fertilization, revealing that biology professors in American academia overwhelmingly agree with this pro-life position.

Other scientific studies come to the same conclusion: life begins at conception.

Even abortion doctors know they are killing children. We were once standing outside an abortion clinic in Olney (Philadelphia) to try to persuade parents not to kill their own children when the abortion doctor himself came outside to speak with us. When we told him abortion is murder, his response was that sometimes, in certain situations, the government gives us the right to murder others. Killing these children is legal. He said if they changed the laws and killing them became illegal, he would stop. 

Slavery in America was legal too, but that didn't make it right. It, like abortion, was evil, and should be rejected by all who name the name of Christ.  

If we were talking about the murder of five-year-olds, no one would be pro-choice. No one would ever conceive of voting for a political candidate who supports the murder of five-year-olds. According to the Bible, a child being knit together in the womb is just as much made in God's image as a five-year-old. But Satan has blinded the eyes of so many and hidden and erased the humanity of children in the womb so well, even among people who call themselves pro-life, that it has become acceptable to support their murder. Get behind us Satan! May God open people's eyes to the truth!

3. Therefore, to take the life of a child in the womb is murder. And when parents take the life of their own child, that is actually one of the most wicked, evil, gruesome kinds of murder on the planet. It's so bad it's even unthinkable to God.

Abortion is one of the most evil injustices in the history of humanity. Do you want to talk about systemic racism, oppression, exploitation of the poor, and government sanctioned brutality? There's nothing on earth right now that even comes close to perpetuating all of these evils like abortion.

Sadly, many today are minimizing the horrific plight of the unborn, claiming to be pro-life "from the womb to the tomb" - but really directing attention away from the holocaust size destruction taking place around the world in the womb. The pro-life movement cannot afford to take its focus off of the unborn.

Over 2,300 little babies are killed by abortion every single day in America alone.

Some 60 million have been slaughtered by abortion since 1973.

Over 1.5 billion have been murdered since 1980 around the world.

4. To support murder or anything else that is an abomination to God is itself an abomination to God, and it is behavior that reveals a heart that is not in submission to God or to His Word. To be pro-choice is to believe parents should have the right to pay doctors to execute their own children - to murder their own children. You cannot support that and be a Christian. God's Word is very clear that murderers will not inherit the Kingdom of God:

Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 1 John 3:15

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

God's Word is also very clear that approving of what God hates and forbids is the fruit of an evil, debased, idolatrous, darkened mind and heart: 

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32 

If you are truly and genuinely born again and trusting in Christ alone by faith alone, you will hate what God hates and love what God loves, and you will be growing in this hatred and love as you are conformed into the image of Jesus. You cannot and will not approve of and support what God hates because if you know and love God, you will hate evil like God does:

O you who love the LORD, hate evil! Psalm 97:10

And God hates the shedding of innocent blood by abortion:

There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood . . . . Proverbs 6:16-17

To be pro-choice is to support the parents' right to kill their own children.

You can't be pro-choice and be a Christian. It's a direct violation of the first and second greatest commandments that Jesus gave us: 

"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:36-39

You cannot love God and support the murder of those made in His very image. And you cannot love your neighbor as yourself by murdering them or supporting the right of others to murder them.

You can't be pro-murder and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-homosexuality and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-child molesting and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-racism and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-KKK and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-police brutality and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-love of money and greed and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-oppression of the poor and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-idolatry and be a Christian.  

You can't be pro-anything Jesus died to save and deliver His people from and be a Christian.

You can't be pro-anything God hates and think you are actually born again and know God. 

Many are deceived into thinking they are actually Christians when they are not. That's why Jesus warned in Matthew 7 that many would come to Him on the day of judgment, thinking they know Jesus as Lord, but He will respond by telling them He never knew them and cast them into hell forever. 

When someone who claims to be a Christian tells me they are pro-choice, I get this sick, shocked feeling. I also sense that Satan has just entered the room. Mainly because this is just a whole new level of evil - it's like Hitler evil. It's the support of the absolute slaughter, beheading, and dismembering of millions of the most innocent, helpless, voiceless, defenseless human beings who have ever lived. 

Sometimes when I hold some of the most beautiful, precious babies on earth (children of members of my church), I think about the fact that there is a whole world of pro-choice people out there who think that this beautiful child's parents should have the right to have this innocent, helpless little baby cut up in pieces and be left for dead. This truly is an unspeakable evil. How could humanity reach such low levels of unutterable evil? Yet God tells us this is the sinful way of the human heart:  

The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Genesis 6:5

Once when we were street preaching, a friend of mine brought one of those graphic signs that actually shows aborted babies and "opens the casket on abortion," revealing the gruesome nature of the evil we are talking about. A lady from Africa who was apparently totally unfamiliar with the concept of abortion saw the sign, and when we explained to her what it was, she literally collapsed on the pavement and began weeping, wailing, and crying with loud shouts and tears. We thought she was having a nervous breakdown. Abortion should give us all a nervous breakdown. It was absolutely unthinkable to her. That is the only proper response to abortion and being pro-choice.

This is not a complicated, unclear, complex issue. Many wicked people are writing and saying things that seem to make it complicated, unclear, and complex. Scott Klusendorf answers some objections here. But I assure you, it won't be complicated, unclear, and complex on the day of judgement when we stand before King Jesus and give an account for our lives.

In one sense, abortion is just the tip of the iceberg. Sexual immorality (sexual activity outside of marriage) is one, if not THE major underlying sin that leads to the sin of abortion. In the U.S. in 2016, unmarried women accounted for 86% of all abortions (CDC). To stop abortion, the world must repent of both being pro-choice and being sexually immoral.

Friend, please don't be deceived any longer. Please repent of being pro-choice. Please turn to Jesus Christ, the God-Man, Who died on that cross for sinners including pro-choice sinners, pro-life sinners, parents who have aborted, and sexually immoral sinners! Jesus took the wrath and curse of God upon Himself that sinners like you and me deserve, He died and was buried, and then He rose up from the dead so that all who repent (turn from their sins) and believe in Him shall be saved! This is the good news of the Gospel:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Once you repent of your sins and trust in Jesus Christ, He will forgive you of all your sins - past, present, and future! You will be counted righteous in God's sight, united to Christ, adopted into God's family as His very child, filled with the Holy Spirit, and empowered to obey God. You will give Him your full loyalty and total allegiance as Lord and King of your life! And you will more and more love what He loves and hate what He hates.  

If you've had an abortion, please read this excellent, Gospel-filled story about God's grace for those who have in fact murdered their own children. THERE IS HOPE AND FORGIVENESS IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE!

Again, once you personally know the grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love of God through faith alone in Christ alone, you will repent of all the ways that you are pro-anything that God hates (including being pro-choice), and you will stand up for the life of the unborn as God's Word instructs:

Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. Proverbs 24:11

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8-9

Please hear the unborn babies' cries from the womb and help them:

I am utterly alone.

I am in darkness.

No one wants me.

No one (it seems) loves me.

My father and mother have forsaken me, and even want to kill me.

No doctors will help me - they only seek to kill me.

Some of the most powerful people in the world fight against me having even the most basic human rights.

Millions believe I am not even human - not worthy of life outside the womb.

Many "pastors" and "Christians" do not stand up for me.

Many who claim to love me make voting decisions that ensure I will never see the light of day.

Laws are in place to ensure I continue to be utterly abused and murdered.

I am the most innocent.

I am the most persecuted.

I am the most vulnerable.

I am the most helpless.

I am the most forgotten.

I am the most alone.

I am the most widely killed, oppressed, and abused in the history of mankind.

Soon, I will face one of the most gruesome deaths imaginable - a man will use a knife to cut off my arms and legs and head - and I will scream and cry - but no one will hear - no one will care.

I am an unborn child about to be aborted.

For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me in. Psalm 27:10

The Return Of The King! - Come LORD Jesus!

The return of the King - the LORD Jesus Christ - will be the most frightening, terrifying, angry, wrathful, and glorious, holy, satisfying, justice bringing, joyous event in the history of mankind. The Lion-like Lamb of God Who alone takes away the sin of the world is coming back to make war and destroy all of His and our enemies and the blood of the wicked will flow 5 or 6 feet deep for over 180 miles (Yes! This may be symbolic - but the reality will be even more frightening!). 

Are you ready?

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!" Acts 16:31

Come Lord Jesus! Come!

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" Revelation 6:12-17

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand. And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, "Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe." So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the earth, and the earth was reaped. Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, "Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe." So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse's bridle, for 1,600 stadia. Revelation 14:14-20 

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16


Hallelujah! What a Savior!
