    Putting Stumbling Blocks in Front of God’s People and Destroying the Earth

    "For the lips of a priest should preserve knowledge, and men should seek instruction from his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.

    I’ve involved myself on Christian Forums for the first time in my life starting in Dec. 2019.
    It is my conscience that TV’s, Computers, Internet, Cell Phones, Artificial Intelligence, a lot of Man created Technologies, the Energies that give those Inventions their artificial Life and Light are stumbling blocks put in front of God’s People. A part of the Endtimes Strong Delusion as in:
    2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 King James Version (KJV)
    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
    12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    These are all ways leading to Mankind’s enslavement, the Mark of the Beast and eventual destruction. The Leaders and Scribes will be held in higher accountability than those who follow Blindly. Leaders are anyone telling you that this is ok and enforcing it, sometimes just by using it as an example to others. Even anyone in those fields giving orders working for that which leads astray God’s People or is destroying the Earth.
    Could anyone in the cities especially, give up their cell phones and materialistic toys and comforts, walk away from them and never look back or would many be like Lots Wife? Try, and you will find how hard it has already become to do this as well as you will find yourself out of work most likely. It is so interwoven into the fabric of society that it cannot be put down by most anyone. Unless you can let go of the material world you will never be able to see the Spiritual World properly. End result is babble, endless arguments, division and loss of self or identity. How hard most Christian Leadership will fight to justify their rite to stay on the internet and keeping their followers close online, teaching this path to all their followers. You can't serve 2 masters. So I don't want to encourage Internet, cell phones, TV etc. at all. I am not going to be on the Internet for long but I thought I would “TRY” to shed Light on these things while I am here.
    Satan and Lucifer based conscience is always very angry and non-repentive when told they need technology and materialistic things to achieve what God can do Spiritually. It is very hard to come out of Babylon-Sodom-Gomorrah.
    Gabriel has already been blowing His Horn for a few years now, why is there no Great Christian News about this? If you don’t know what this is or means, ask and I’ll tell you if you’re interested.
    Now the world leaders mainly want democracy and so does the church. They want a vote and a say in just about everything and if the majority wants to go a direction.....then it’s just a matter of the numbers justifying it. Democracy for abortion, war, LBTGQ etc. the Falling away, the problem is God is not based on a democracy. It was just a matter of time that before Yoshua’s teachings are made into something bad by the majority and now we are here at a very important crossroads. Just like in the Days of Noah or Sodom and Gomorrah.
    I got saved in 1966 the year before Jerusalem was restored to Israel. I often wandered what significance that meant in relationship to Luke’s writing about the end of the age of the gentiles.
    In my opinion there is a different type of Christian before that line was drawn, then after. There was a different type of preaching before than after although there were elements of both on either side of that timeline, maybe going back to 1948. It would seem to me that Fear of the Lord was not taught in the same ways and has deteriorated ever since.
    1967 The Summer of Love.
    Love not fear was taught in such a way that it was used to put the church to sleep. Go to sleep for another week. The lukewarm Church and the One that is married to the world has allowed the love of the world to creep into the Seminaries and teachings for many years and put that infected yeast into the loaf.
    Another way of confusing Christian People is the fact that through time there has been many layers of deceptions and proud boaster's thinking that they know the way, teaching this for so long, much like the example of an onion with a multitude of layers of skins hiding something within.
    If you push the lesser laws on God’s people over the greater laws you will cause God’s People to stumble in these deceptive times. See the parade from beginning to end from the view like, on top of a high hill, rather than be a part of the parade-charade only seeing the float in front of you and the one behind you.
    God will destroy ALL who destroy this Earth or work for that which is destroying the Earth and cause His People to Stumble and follow different Idols and transgressions. Here are some scriptures that point to this:
    The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.
    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.”
    Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this--not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother's way.
    And it will be said, "Build up, build up, prepare the way, Remove every obstacle out of the way of My people."
    'But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality.
    'You shall not curse a deaf man, nor place a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall revere your God; I am the LORD.
    "But as for you, you have turned aside from the way; you have caused many to stumble by the instruction; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi," says the LORD of hosts.
    But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
    "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
    "Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you yourselves did not enter, and you hindered those who were entering."
    But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.
    The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

    Once you’ve been told about the need to change, you are consciences of it and have to act on that conscience.

    If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
    If indeed they have escaped the corruption of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, only to be entangled and overcome by it again, their final condition is worse than it was at first.

    Then, according to your conclusion, these things must also be leading mankind to enslavement and destruction: the printing press, newspapers, hard and soft covered books, telephones, radios, air-conditioners and money. Anything that a person puts ahead of God in his life leads to his damnation. Here Apostle Paul puts the emphasis on money, but it could be anything:

    "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
    But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness." I Tim 16:10-11


    God's Way is shown here:

    "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" Matt 6:33

    If all air conditioners were removed from church buildings today in mid-summer in the southern part of the United States, probably attendance would drop by 90% or better. Yet, when my old pastor [now 94 years old] attended his first camp meeting in 1936, all the services [worship, prayer, evangelistic, teaching, etc.] were held in a large open air tent with a dirt floor covered with straw to keep the dust down. Instead of sitting on cushioned pews, the were at best seated on long unfinished boards setting on bricks. Many people had to stand or sit on the dirt floor as there was not enough seating for everyone. Who was looking for physical comfort? The place was packed and at night after service most people slept in their little pup tents with no room for anything but sleeping. If ridding ourselves of all material things would solve our problems before God, you should not stop with those items you mentioned. All anyone needs to do before God is to keep first things first [His kingdom and His righteousness].

    "Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love." Rev 2:4

    Thank you for this my friend! I enjoyed listening to it. Well done singing apparently without the accompaniment of instruments is a special God given talent. Putting scriptures to music can also make for something special.

    Yes but putting a stumbling block in front of another or destroying this world is what I am saying. So many deception so many stumbling blocks. There are so many things that point to the last moments of time as we know it, so many things going astray, leading away to stumbling. We all have a book with writings about not being able to buy and sell.....how prepared is the body to deal with that? Is there any world wide barter system set up for those times to help God's People? My Grandparents lived by the 100 mile rule, they tried to never have anything they depended their lives on that could not get within a hundred miles around their farm. It takes time to set these things in place, know the people to deal with in your areas. And what happens if your forced to lose your possessions and move? The ring of fire's not just waking up.....its angry, and getting angrier.....the birth pains. Maybe sucking out oil and gas hasn't been a good thing for earth and its inhabitants. Yes it has snuck up on the sleeping church and now who can make war with the system we've chosen for our lifestyles. With all the natural and man-made disasters here now and going to be far worse shortly, the erroneous system we chosen to encompass our lives into is so big, taking it down would cause untold devastation and yet God will. All things invented will go through the fire and be destroyed. Weapons won't help you in the day of our calamity.
    The days of the Hell Fire Preaching and the Mobile tent Churches that went town to town, knew how to deal with what ever types came to hear, not like today where we sit behind a crystal glass or between four walls surrounded by friends always in our comfort zone, never developing oneself to know what pushes us and how we would react when confronted with an enemy or just different unpleasant situations. Yes a different way back then that required perseverance and hardship without expected praise and exaltation Clergy expect now-a-days in the most part, soothsaying their flocks back to sleep for another week. No talk of wrong doing. Even the traditional Denomination Church here in the town I live only has about 7 to 10 people at best all over 70 yrs and among them no one tries to bring in more people anymore. No steps in the ladder left underneath for others to make it up. The spirit of the antichrist in so many and growing.

    Amen, Christ must always be first, but all he says, we are becoming slaves to it all, I work in the high tech broadcast world, and I see man becoming slaves to it everyday, juts jump on a train and see the people with there headphones on, glued to there tablets adults playing games, all in there little isolated worlds. Just because God can use it doesnt mean its good for us.

    You didn't the Spirit of the message. Where you are taking this I can only see you looking for fault. Anyways, the spirit of the antichrist will justify staying on to the path that it chosen Mankind to follow and even when it can't convincing others everything is going to be fine, then by force of an ever tightening noose that most will see no victory against, no hope. Who can make war with this? We love our lifestyles, toys and distractions, who could walk away? 8 people in Noah's time.....3 people in Lots time, how many at the end of time as we know it?
    One who can be trusted with a little is one that can be trusted much more. All God's servants have been given a part but because there is so much disinformation, most won't discern which ones are telling the necessary truths for the times they were meant. Most won't search out the different parts we were given from each other, therefore having less of a full understanding of all wisdom we were given, instead they waited for it to come to them.....that is one of the reasons why I am on the Internet Posting these last months.....for those who were waiting, too busy and distracted instead of seeking it out themselves. I've had the grace to train for most of my whole life for these last moments and I am here to wake up the others to their "true identity" and therefore become enlightened and let that Light then shine through the darkness for others. The Lord anointed me to "TRY" where others would not. The Lord showed me that my message is given for “all” who would take the time to read and understand....it is a message that “not all would receive” but only “those it was meant for”. When Satan looks for fault to discredit the Message I was given, I always remind him of his future.....much like Christ said to Peter, "Get behind me Satan."

    Perhaps we are not disagreeing. People who stay on the Lord's side to the end will win because He will win. Those who could or would serve God without all of the modern comforts and technology are already not putting Him first. They may not consider it, but God knows it.

    My point is having the comforts and technology will not cause us to lose out with God unless we are putting them ahead of God. Changing the rules in churches will not make people change what is in their hearts anymore than throwing away all of our computers, TV and other electronic devices.

    It's like alcoholic beverages. Scripture clearly says not to drink to excess [Eph 5:8], but no where does it say not to drink at all. The problem is with they partake to excess people lose control and many [most?] people cannot drink just one glass. If a person drinks too much for whatever reason and he has put that ahead of God's kingdom and righteousness. The best solution for most people regarding alcohol is to become a teetotaler... but it cannot be easily enforced. It was tried.

    In another era it was supposedly Christian people who pressed for and passed an Amendment to the US Constitution which forbade alcoholic beverages in the nation starting in 1920 [18th Amendment]. It did not work. The demand was too great and too many people were willing to break the law to get or supply what was wanted. In 1933 prohibition was reversed [21st Amendment]. It did not work for the nation and it won't work people in churches either. People are still people. In order to serve God in a measure many of them they insist on certain things which God would frown upon in spite of God.


    You cannot remove all of the stumbling blocks. Even trying to is the wrong approach to take as I understand it. A person must want to avoid real stumbling blocks and if necessary he can ask God to help him.

    People, who did not serve God, were slaves to something else before they had all this high tech stuff. The stuff has changed, but people have not.

    Yes you are correct except the fact that before now seeds were planted but at this time and the in near future the seeds fruit is ripe and will be on everyone's plate. Christianity will do terribly and and i can imagine how mad they will be that their leaders and soothsayers for the predicament they have to deal with. There is an old saying, "the more you sweat in peace the less you'll bleed in war." I see most Christians are married to the world, are fooling themselves and others to go down the same path together....they like company and the way their friend all like their posts.
    A democracy. The heaven and God they chose is the world, they are in denial, and you cannot serve two masters.
    But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.

    Everyone will reap what they sow, which includes you and it includes me. Which means we need to sow the right things at the right time and avoid wrong things altogether. Both the rightness and the timeliness ultimately belong to God, but He has all of us to decide both of them for ourselves and following ourselves alone when get in some serious trouble.

    "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
    For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Gal 6:7-9


    I would be worried about the leaders, but God!
    We cannot fix anyone else's mess. Even God has limited His own ability to fix someone's mess by placing the decisions in their own hands. That is freewill: God or mammon.


    "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matt 10:28

    But watch carefully where and how you work up your sweat. The person who won me to the Lord back in the 1970's told me this:
    "It is easy to live for God hard, it is hard to live for God easy". Too many people like Abraham's nephew, Lot, take what looks like the easiest way and it turns to be the hardest way.


    No democracies in scripture, at least not on the Lord's side!

    But all new young converts to Christianity start along the road with the double-mindedness James also warns against. Too often the ones who should be helping them to get away from this are already into it too deep themselves to be helpful.

    My liberty? I have now the 'liberty' to hand the reins of me over to God. Any time I don't I am walking blind which can be a dangerous thing with open ditches all around.

    "And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?" Luke 6:39

    The Line,"But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak." is from 1 Corinthians 8:9 not my own words. I am not sure where your going with this anymore the last post especially. I am going to end the discussion on this subject with you as I feel it is starting to go in circles. God Bless You.

    We are approaching this period of time (3 1/2 years) but it has not yet come upon us. That does not mean that all around the world hordes are not following their own delusions, or the delusions manufactured by Satan.

    However, the present time is the Age of Grace, or the Gospel Age, or the Church Age. Therefore the Holy Spirit is restraining Satan, while maintaining the power of the Gospel. And it is the words of God from Scripture that are alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. The focus of all Christians must therefore be the propagation of the Gospel, not the machinations of Satan and his evil spirits.

    Finding fault no, laughing yes.

    We live in a world that is not Christian, even if/when leaders use Christian words etc.

    Think of the early church in a pagan Roman empire, that is the situation we are in.

    @mychael With Christ He speaks of, religious doctrines, the law, works, etc all these things that men add to ones salvation and make Christ a stumbling block. Technology in itself is not dangerous, but it can and is used against one. but these things we must understand. Many wont be ready because they refuse to follow Christ, that is there end. Prefer men, study and church than the on who is supposed to be there first love

    You can't serve God properly using Satan's stumbling blocks. You can't serve two masters.
