IT IS A DEALBREAKER WHEN YOUR SPOUSE WATCHES PORN

Porn is short for pornography, which is video or print material that is intended to be viewed for sexual gratification.

Watching pornography according to the Bible is considered a sexual sin and considered the same as committing adultery.

Here are some scriptures to prove it:

“God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor— not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways.” 1. Thessalonians 4:3-5 NLT

“Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.” Hebrews 13:4 NLT

And, Jesus made this very clear when He said;

“You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’ But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5:27-28 NLT

Therefore, if your spouse [...]

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DANIEL FAST

Quite often when I hear of prophets and pastors calling for a fast, they give the people a range of fasting options, like the total abstention from food and drink (except water) or what is often called “the Daniel fast.” The Daniel fast is usually defined as eating only vegetables and drinking liquids.

The basis for the Daniel fast is found in the Old Testament Bible book of Daniel, chapter 1, verses 8-16.

Daniel was among the captives taken from Jerusalem to Babylon. The king of Babylon, Belshazzar, had Daniel and three other young men from the tribe of Judah put into a three-year training program so that they might serve in the king’s court.  As part of the program, the king provided the initiates with his edible delicacies, including his wine. Daniel objected to eating and drinking these things because these foods were ritually unclean according to Jewish dietary laws. Instead of eating and drinking the king’s ritually unclean delicacies, Daniel chose to limit his [...]

DON’T LISTEN TO ANYONE TEACHING ABOUT SPEAKING IN TONGUES WHO DOESN’T SPEAK IN TONGUES THEMSELVES!

Those, who do not believe in speaking in tongues, say it was only a one-time event for the believers at that time in the Bible. What they are actually saying is, that it doesn’t exist nowadays anymore! Many, who oppose speaking in tongues, link it to the Charismatic Christians who promote speaking in tongues, people they think are somewhat flaky. They often show their disgust for it by calling the speaking in tongues demonic or a form of chanting, and they vehemently forbid anybody from practicing it.

But Jesus promised, that those who believe in Him will speak in new tongues when He commanded His disciples to: 

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; THEY WILL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; they will take up [...]

LIES IN THE CHURCH

Even Benny Hinn now reluctantly admits that he has taken the preaching of the prosperity gospel to the extreme, when he said:

“We get attacked for preaching prosperity, well it’s in the Bible, but I think some have gone to the extreme with it sadly, and it’s not God’s word what is taught, and I think I’m as guilty as others.”

Benny Hinn now realizes that some of the things he learned from preachers, when he was growing up, aren’t biblical and the popular interpretation of the prosperity gospel — the teaching that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth and that they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith, and the “sowing of seeds” through the faithful payments of tithes and offerings — is one of those things.

Yes, Benny Hinn, you deceived millions of Christians all over the world and you took advantage of many of them!

The Bible teaches that we are free from the guilt and bondage of the Old [...]

FOR ALL THOSE CHRISTIANS LIVING IN FORNICATION

According to the dictionary, fornication means ‘sexual intercourse between a man and woman not married to each other.’

The Bible says, “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints.” Ephesians 5:3 NKJV

In other words, God does not approve of a lifestyle of living together and having sex without being married.

Jesus said to the woman He met at the well, “You don’t have a husband— for you have had five husbands, and you aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now.” John 4:17-18 NLT

Jesus was making it obvious to this woman what He thought about her lifestyle of living in the sin of fornication!

It for this reason the Scriptures say: “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” Hebrews 13:4 NKJV

DID JESUS SAY TO CHARGE FOR HIS WORD?

No! Never! Instead, Jesus who truly loves us unconditionally said: “Freely you have received, freely give!” Matthew 10:8 NKJV

I just got a notification of an upcoming conference with Heidi Baker with the title “Live to Love” where they are charging you a $39 Early Bird entrance fee per person, and a $45 Regular fee per person.

And then to top it off, these crooks have the nerve to explain their refund policy as follows:

REFUNDS

“All Iris Event ticket sales are final. Exceptions are made for medical emergencies, and will be reviewed case by case. Should a refund be given, it will be minus 20% of original cost. No refunds will be given 14 days prior the event.”

These people are the types of whom the Bible says: “They must be silenced, because they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money!” Titus 1:11 NLT

WHAT MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT HALLOWEEN

Halloween is a highly pagan holiday shrouded in witchcraft and attention to everything evil and dark. Traditionally though, it is said to have been a commemoration of saints that were martyred for their faith in God, hence the macabre costumes. Halloween today has evolved into a modern-day mix of the two.

Halloween originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain celebrated from October 31st to November 1st, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. In ancient Celtic stories, Samhain was a magical time of transition when important battles were fought and fairies cast spells. Over time, Samhain evolved into the modern Halloween and has been observed by Celtic Neo-pagans and Wiccans.

In the United States, the origins of Halloween started with the early settlers. When early American settlers came from England, many of them brought various beliefs about ghosts and witches with them. In the 1800s, many immigrants from Ireland and Scotland [...]

THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR BEING A JEZEBEL IN THE CHURCH

First of all, in order for you to have the evil spirit of Jezebel, you must be a woman! Why is this?

Jesus made this very clear while admonishing the church of Thyatira. He told them:

“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray.” Revelations 2:20 NLT

Here is Jesus specifically emphasizing the word “THAT”; you are permitting “THAT WOMAN” – that Jezebel, that is because Jesus was referring to the infamous wicked woman ‘Queen Jezebel’ from the Old Testament days, who was known for undermining the authority of her husband King Ahab, by controlling and manipulating him and taking over his leadership. (See 1. Kings 21)

The reason the Jezebel Spirit only pertains to women is because men have been given natural authority from God, it’s not something they would need to fight to get, they already have it as the Bible says, “But there is one thing I want [...]

YOU NEED TO KNOW THE WORD FROM THE BIBLE

Because, “Many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people!” Matthew 24:11 NLT

They will preach a different Jesus, a different kind of Spirit and a different kind of gospel! (See 2. Corinthians 11:4)

They twist the Scriptures to mean something quite different! (See 2. Peter 3:16)

“In their greed, they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money!” 2. Peter 2:3 NLT

They will perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones! (See Matthew 24:24)

Like Satan, these false prophets disguise themselves as angel of lights, like servants of righteousness! (See 2. Corinthians 11:14-15)

They trick people with lies so clever they sound like the truth! (See Ephesians 4:14)

Jesus made this very clear when He said: “See, I have warned you about this ahead of time!” Matthew 25:25 NLT

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15 NLT

Therefore, you must search the Scriptures to see if what these people [...]

DO I HAVE TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES? NO THANKS!

We are in the Jewish holiday week of Sukkot, also known as the feast of Booths or Tabernacles. It is an agricultural festival that originally was considered a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest. Sukkot are hut-like structures that the Jews lived in during the 40 years of travel through the wilderness after the exodus from Egypt.

The Jews were instructed by God through Moses the following: “Begin celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles on the fifteenth day of the appointed month—five days after the Day of Atonement. This festival to the Lord will last for seven days.” Leviticus 23:34 NLT

“This festival will be a happy time of celebrating with your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows from your towns.” Deuteronomy 16:14 NLT

“For seven days you must present special gifts to the Lord. The eighth day is another holy day on which you present your special gifts to the Lord. This will be a solemn [...]
