One Need Not Condone Depravity


Seek Truth in the Light of Christ

 

In today’s 21st century Western Culture has almost completely been transformed to detest Biblical Morality. In relation to transformation much of society would regard me with the epithet of Homophobe. The intent being to paint my character as a racist White Nationalist hater of the LGBTQ lifestyle.

 

1) Many people don’t realize a Homophobe is literally one with an unnatural fear of homosexuals. I have no such fear. Rather I choose to agree with God Who abhors anything trying to change the intent of His Creation. Before Christ God’s abhorrence was especially bad news for those who rejected the Creator’s intent. After the Resurrection of Christ all who willing turn to God’s Plan in Christ Jesus can escape the bad news for wrong choices.

 

2) And next, I would be working against the Creator’s intent thanks to Jesus that would lead me to the bad news consequences facing all rejecting the Living Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I’m hardly close to perfect in that regard, but everyday I strive to be in compliance to the Creator’s intent through the mercy afforded in Christ.

 

Justin Smith is about to take you on a journey (with some commentary/links from yours truly) about the corruption America is experiencing as a result of the LGBTQ agenda to discredit Biblical Morality. Be wise and strive to seek God’s Mercy for anything contrary to the Creator’s intent.

One Need Not Condone Depravity

Whoever Defends God Defends Man

 

By Justin O. Smith

One need not flaunt or condone a noxious, depraved and immoral lifestyle to be welcoming to all people in a community, regardless of where one lives, but the MTSU [Middle Tennessee State University] Sidelines seems to believe otherwise, as it celebrated and praised the 4th Annual (Gay) Pride Fest and the supportive “hugs” handed out by some confused citizens, who encourage this lifestyle through their “support”, in Murfreesboro, TN recently [A pro-LGBTQ post reporting on homosexual abomination event]. This, after the entire month of June was celebrated as LGBTQ Pride Month across the nation, by those so indifferent to the spread of this abomination, this disease, in our land, as bare-assed homosexual men in bondage leathers and women dressed similar to whores and harlots were seen in America’s major cities, form San Francisco to New York and Miami [AFTAH exposés on public LGBTQ perverseness (warning-images will be offensive to Biblical-minded Christians): Outside of Capital Pride, the puppy mosh, SF 2008 Folsom Street Fair & worse but not suggesting to search].  And, while this didn’t happen in Murfreesboro, it certainly won’t be long before it does, given the community is already showing itself susceptible to its subversion and perversion.

 

Some may protest that these people are free to choose and live any lifestyle they wish. And I would agree; however, that doesn’t mean that I am going to celebrate that lifestyle with them, nor should anyone who truly seeks to do what is right, true and moral, since the freedom and liberty our ancestors fought for had a certain expectation that Liberty’s time honored moral underpinnings and the Judeo-Christian principles its ideas were based upon were to be preserved and defended.

 

Liberty and virtue must go hand-in-hand, especially since a free people have a greater propensity to misbehave than serfs in shackles, and all America today needs something greater than themselves — God if you will — and a moral code or inner force and conscience to replace the lack of external restraint. Virtue cannot truly be a virtue unless people are free to choose it.

 

Men and women who pursue same-sex relationships may revel in their “freedom”, but they are slaves to the sickness and disease of homosexuality — “atypical gender behavior” — such as it was described until 1978; and, their lifestyle is not righteous or virtuous, since it stands in direct contradiction with God’s Word, in which Leviticus 18:22 reads: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” -KJV [Blog Editor: The incredulous path to psychiatry/psychology normalizing LGBTQ: Homosexuality: The Mental Illness That Went Away & Is Homosexuality a Mental Disorder]

 

 

On August 30th 2019, Andrea Ganna of the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Finland released the findings of her study, that looked at 490,000 [Blog Editor: reports appear to disagree on the number involved in the study. E.g. Justin evidently found a report listing 490,000. Breitbart reports 470,000, Be Healthy News reports 480,000 & it appears to me the articles appear to report based on their socio-political outlook.] people and same-sex behavior. She and her colleagues reached the same conclusion reached by the Human Genome Project several years ago, through data that proves sexual behavior is volition and has moral, social and health implications. People are not born gay and the illusive “gay gene” is a myth and doesn’t exist, and it is not impossible for them to change and turn away from their sad lifestyle.

 

Always eager to promote and validate all manner of casual sex, including “Man-Boy ‘love’“, the politically correct sex researchers and the Leftist media, ever ready to chip away at America’s nuclear family, have suppressed any medical evidence that runs contrary to their Pro-Homosexual narrative. Instead, they showcase fake “science” and genetic studies, such as those conducted by Alfred Kinsey in 1948 and 1953, focused on male and female sexual behavior, respectively, that fail to be successfully replicated anywhere else.

 

[Alfred Kinsey the immoral creep by the immoral Left to transform acceptance of perverted social mores:

 

 

 

 

 

People can choose their own sexual lifestyle as they wish, to their own benefit or peril, however, for myself and many others, most Americans would see them keep it in their bedrooms. But, in these days of sexual oversaturation and hyperactivity, when the LGBTQ community has been designated an entire month to celebrate their sexual proclivities on the street, while the straight, heterosexual, child-producing majority is essentially ostracized and even referred to as “white nationalists” as a pejorative, then it’s safe to say that America has a major problem.

 

In March, the Washington Post reported quite supportively, that Sarah McBride, a transgender advocate read stories to kindergarten students in Arlington, Virginia, exposing them to transgender issues without many of the parents’ approval. These are children, who still believe in Santa Claus, and yet, here we see a criminal act, no different than pedophilia, being perpetrated against them, in the name of “education”, with McBride reading at one point: “I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way.”

 

Such an incredibly complicated conversations on adult matters are flat out wrong and inappropriate for such incredibly young children, and they would be considered risqué even for many high schools. This ‘education’ is tantamount to pedophilia, and it should be outlawed across the nation through federal legislation.

 

In a June 17th interview for ‘Them‘ magazine, Sunny Hitchings, nineteen years old and a second generation queer, who has attended San Francisco Pride, detailed his/her (?) childhood growing up with kinky, poly, queer parents. His mother openly practiced bondage and sadomasochism for most of its childhood, and although Sunny states that he had multiple parents, his most influential parents were his mom and his chosen stepdad, Moo, a queer transgender man who was formerly his mother’s lifestyle submissive mate. And raised by these freaks, as a teenager, Sunny was taught by his mother how to choke and be choked for erotic pleasure.

 

America has even witnessed young boys, as young as 9 to 11 years old, exploited by their parents, in the same manner that Andrew and Wendy Napoles have exploited 11 year old Desmond, convincing him that he is a transgender youth from about the age of five. They now tour the country with Desmond dressed as a “Drag Queen” and dancing, gyrating and performing in front of grown homosexual men, essentially being sexualized and prostituted, in a display that can only be called deviant and unnatural; and unbelievably, he is being glorified by mainstream media and shows like ‘Good morning America’. [More disgusting Desmond Napoles exploitation news: HERE & HERE.]

 

There isn’t any limiting principle on the Left, the “anything-goes” crowd, any longer. None of them seem willing to say that nine, ten and eleven year old drag queens are a demented idea, nothing to be encouraged and celebrated. As teen magazines currently coach teen age girls in all areas of sex and encourage them to become prostitutes, one must wonder if Pete Buttigieg will teach his children some Good Ol’ Gay S&M, allowing them to grow up with leather daddies and erotic chokers as mentors.

 

If American society was sane, this would not be possible, if not legally, then certainly not morally and definitely not commercially. Our culture seems to be in a death spiral and heading downwards at terminal velocity, without any will to stop the madness.

 

The American world and times, such as they are and left to the Queer minority and its lobbying groups, would have us all call our own humanity into question, and accept that each of us can now choose our own role in society, our own gender, by rejecting the given element of nature and sex and one man and one woman intended to join in matrimony for the purpose of procreation and the worship of the Lord Our God. They would have us reject the Biblical creation account, being created by God as male and female, and the very essence of our being, as they facilitate a profoundly false anthropological theory, reduced to mere spirit and will, the manipulation of one’s nature and a point where man chooses for himself what his nature is to be.

 

[Radical LGBTQ Agenda YOU Will Not Find on MSM:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Normal, well-adjusted heterosexual people understand the human nature isn’t some abstract to be reshaped and made anew, better than what God Himself has done, impossible as that task would be. Our nature is provided us by our bodily identity, and if we dispute male and female as God’s created reality (Genesis 1:27) and the pre-ordained duality of man and woman, then the core family’s place, understood through Creation, is made to be next to nothing and children lose their place in the world and the dignity that belongs to them. Seeing one’s self as greater than one’s Maker and able to recreate one’s self strips one’s dignity as a creature of God, removing God from the core of one’s being, and aside from destroying America’s families, it also paves the highway to Hell and Eternal Death.  [Blog Editor – SEE: Genesis 3: 4-5 & UNMASKING SATAN’S LIES]

 

It is clear that denying God harms individual dignity, families and America. The defense of these things are righteous and necessary. Whoever defends God is defending man.

JESUS: THE GREATEST LOVE WORTH FINDING


Hallelujah! Today is Easter – Resurrection Day!

I read this Oscar Leske Facebook post a few days on the group Christians and Jews United for the existence of Israel (Closed Group). It is some good preaching from a guy who wants you to know he is not a Pastor or ordained Minister.

JESUS: THE GREATEST LOVE WORTH FINDING

 

Posted by Oscar Leske

Facebook Closed Group – Christian and Jews  United for the existence of Israel

 

WHO IS JESUS?


A more lonely humble beginning is impossible to imagine. It was an unpretentious stage entrance of the Son of Man, the Son of God. God in human form presented upon earth’s stage. The infant cry of the newborn baby came clearly and for the very first time deity was articulated directly in sounds expressed through a human body. God has come and He is with His people; He is Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us.” (Matt.1:23)

 

There were no newspapers that heralded the coming of Christ. There was no announcement that the Redeemer had come. There was no one who was publicly saying, “This is the Savior of the world.” Unknown to the major populace of that day; in Bethlehem, the least among the cities, was born the Savior. What a humble entrance and when I read that story I wonder at it. Only God could have written such a script. You and I would never have thought to draft such a story. Here deity invades humanity. Here eternity invades time. Here royalty invades poverty. Just imagine the awe and wonder of this humble entrance of Christ into the world. The Lord of glory laying upon straw, the Creator in a cradle, the Savior in a stall. The Sovereign of history welcomed by the shepherds of the hillside! God sent His Christmas gift to this earth nearly 2,000 years ago. It was the gift of Himself – deity wrapped in humanity. What a story, what profound truth is wrapped up in this thought; that God came here to be one of us. Immanuel, God with us.

 

GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH 

 

When God chose to reveal Himself, He did so through a human body. The hand that touched the leper had dirt under its nails and the tears He wept came from a heart as broken as yours or mine will ever be. We have a God who has condescended to come and live in the midst of our suffering and pain and to help us face it and conquer it. Because God is with us, we have the confidence to face the challenges of life. Whatever problems may come our way, God is with us. There is no challenge that will ever come to any child of God that will be bigger than the ability of God to handle it. Jesus came into the world to be the Savior of lost mankind. I’d love for you to understand that this unique person is the only hope of lost mankind.

 

So many people that I know, who take a stab at religion, have a view of God as someone distant and unapproachable, someone who cannot be reached or who cares little about the mundane things that happen on this earth. But the God of the Bible is Immanuel, God with us; God coming down to be one of us. Literally; God walking around in the body and Person of Jesus Christ! The deity of Jesus Christ is an undeniable truth from the Bible. He is God in man. He is the Son of God and He is God, the Son. It is the truth that we will probably never really comprehend fully with our finite minds.

 

The reason Christ Jesus came into the world was not to establish a religion, but to give LIFE. In the Gospel of John the word “life” occurs 44 times, and the word religion not once. Jesus Himself tells us why He came. He said in John 10:10, “I have come that they may have LIFE…..”

 

The obvious question is “What kind of person needs life?” From God’s point of view, the problem of man is not just that he is a sinner in need of forgiveness; his greater problem is that he is DEAD and in need of LIFE. We are born into this world in the image of Adam – dead spiritually. And dead men don’t need help; they need life. Salvation is the process of passing from “death” to “life.” It is not just something Christ did for you; it is Christ Jesus Himself living in you. Christ laid down His life for us so that He could give His life to us. We receive life the moment we accept Him as our Savior.

 

GOD REACHING DOWN TO MAN 

 

Here we have God reaching down to man because man could not reach out to God and in His hand was salvation. That’s why the writer of the book of Acts says it this way, “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).” That’s the only name; salvation comes by no other way but through Jesus. [Blog Editor: Bold text my emphasis.] No church, no priest, no religion, and none of your good deeds will save you; only Jesus. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him (Jn.14:6,7).” He is the ONLY way to heaven. Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to LIFE, and there are few who find it (Matt.7:13,14).”

 

Do you want to get to heaven? Then you have to go through the name of Jesus. It’s exclusive! You may say, “Well, aren’t there many ways to heaven?” No! There are a lot of ideas about how to get to heaven but there is only “one way.” Some folks may say to me, “Hey Oscar, that’s awfully narrow-minded or that sounds sort of bigoted to me.” You know, I don’t like to be called narrow minded nor do I like to have people tell me I’m narrow minded, but I’d like to be just as narrow minded as the Word of God is. Because you see the Bible says that every person will walk either one of two paths; a narrow way leading to LIFE, or the wide path leading to DESTRUCTION (Matt.7:13).

 

Those that get admitted to heaven are going to have to pass through the narrow gate – that of faith, discipline and endurance. It’s an illustration to us. What Jesus is saying to us is that the way to heaven is narrow and few find it. Jesus also said there is a broad way that leads to destruction. An example of this is religion, which is a broad way but it isn’t going to get you to heaven. The people that are going to go to heaven are going to go on God’s condition and terms; not ours. There is only one way in which a person is going to go into the presence of the God of this universe and that is through faith in what His Son came to this earth to accomplish. Nobody will be going to heaven because of what they have done – only because of what Christ Jesus has done. [Blog Editor bold text emphasis] “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is no one who does good, no, not one; for all of us have sinned and all of us have fallen short of the glory of God (Rom.3:10,23).” That includes you and me. And so the only reason, the only way that we’re going to go into the presence of God is when we have accepted God’s provision for us in His Son, Christ Jesus. “There is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby you must be saved.”

 

Now in the world in which we live, the gate is wide and broad – the life of self-indulgence and pleasure. Then you have all the various religions and those religious but lost who go to church for social reasons, but who don’t know the Lord from Adam and still call themselves Christians (counterfeit Christians). There are people who have been going to church most of their lives and have never heard the gospel message. In a lot of the churches today, the Gospel is never proclaimed and so the gate is wide and broad and is the way that leads to destruction.

 

But there is only one way to get into the presence of God and that is accepting what God has said about you and me: that we’re sinners and that we’re dead. This has a consequence to it; it’s called “spiritual death” and that’s what you are saved from. You’re not saved from sins (Jesus has taken away all the sins of the world) but you’re saved from the consequence of sin which is (spiritual) death or separation from God and the gift of God is eternal life in His Son.

 

Only a living saved being (alive spiritually) is going to go into the presence of a living God. We were all born dead spiritually and the only way we’re going to go into the presence of the living God is to be made alive spiritually and the only source of LIFE for us is the life of the resurrected Christ Jesus. He said, “I am the resurrection and the LIFE. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live (Jn.11:25)” Jesus is telling us here that ONLY He has the power of “resurrection” and of “life” in His hands. That’s the narrow way.

 

If we never turned to Him by faith we remain dead. Dead spiritually and God is Spirit and so we can’t have a relationship with God if we don’t have the spirit in us because God is not flesh and bones. God is Spirit and so we must have the Holy Spirit to interact with God. It says in John 4:24, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” And so we as believers who have the indwelling Spirit of God in us can worship God in spirit and truth.

 

There is only one God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who became a man and dwelt among us as the only begotten Son of the Father! It is not the case of being narrow minded. It’s the case that He is the only One whose blood was of such value that it could take away the sins of the world and through His resurrected life He can offer you “life” eternal. Your religion can’t give you “life.” Your church can’t give you “life.” Your priest or Pope can’t give you “life.” The only One is God, Christ Jesus, who has a “life” to give. Christ Jesus was raised from the dead, and His resurrection is the restoration of LIFE!

 

Buddha didn’t come back from the grave. Muhammad didn’t come back from the grave. None of the Popes came back from the grave. The New Age Gurus didn’t come back from the grave. None of these came back from the dead. Only Christ Jesus came back from the dead and was witnessed by the apostles and some 500 more witnesses (1Cor.15:4-6). Only Christ Jesus was resurrected from the grave and is alive and now sits at the right hand of God, the Father (Acts 2:33). Only Christ Jesus has a “life” to give and the moment you put your faith in Him, the Spirit of God comes to reside in you and you are made alive, spiritually. From that moment on, you have life eternal and you have a personal relationship with God never to be separated from Him again for all eternity. Isn’t that great news? (Read Romans 8: 9-11)

 

There is only one way by which you can enter into that relationship with Him and it’s called by faith. It’s not through works; creeds, sacraments, confession booths, priests or anything or anyone else. You’re not going to become a child of God sitting in church any more than you become a chicken sitting in a hen house or a car sitting in the garage. You’re going to become a child of God when there comes a point in your life when you say I’ve had it and turn in faith to Christ Jesus. You can’t become a child of God on your own merits, or through any works that you do.

 

If you were to stand up before God and He said to you, “What have you done to deserve to be in My heaven?” How would you answer Him? What would you say? “Oh, well, I’m a good person.” No you’re not! There is only one person who is good and that is God and you’re not God (Mk.10:18). So do you have any other excuses? You’re not going to be judged by someone else or by any of your peers as to whether you’re going to heaven or not. You’re not going to be judged by any man. There is only One who will judge you and that’s Jesus. He really knows where your heart is at and Jesus knows whether or not you’re faking it or whether or not you have been truly converted through putting your faith in Him. So, do you still want to play church or do you want to get a LIFE that only He is able to give you? Ask yourself, “Am I in Christ or am I in a religion?” Don’t fool yourself! God knows every little thing about you. You can fool others around you, but you can’t fool God. I have one other question for you: “Why in the world would you want to self-destruct, to rationalize your life away and to be separated from God for all eternity by rejecting His Son, Christ Jesus?”

 

This is why it is so critical for you to know that the barrier between God and sinful man has now been taken away at Calvary’s cross, and a bridge has been built between the two through the person of Jesus Christ (reconciliation). The reason that God has removed the sin barrier is so that whosoever will come to Christ by faith can be made alive in Him. That is why the ONLY thing that will ever condemn a man to hell is simply his refusal to accept LIFE. [Blog Editor bold text emphasis.]

 

Who did Jesus claim to be?

 

Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest, most specific picture of God revealing Himself to us. Throughout the major world religions you’ll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claim to be equal to God. Surprisingly, only Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you’re looking at Him. Though He talked about His Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who has seen Him has seen the Father, anyone who believes in Him, believes in the Father (John 14:7-11).

 

He said, “I am the light of the world, he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of LIFE (Jn.8:12).” Our Lord here draws an analogy between the sun as the physical light of the world and Himself as the spiritual light of the world. He claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive people of their sins, freedom from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed to Himself. He did not say, “Follow my words and you will find truth.” He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Me.” The truth is not in the abstract but in the Person of Christ Jesus. He is God in the flesh and He created you and me along with everything else on earth and He knows it all (John 1:3).

 

There are so many references in regards to who Jesus claimed to be, that I am only going to quote eight.

 

  1. John 10:30, “I and the Father are one.”

  2. John 8:58, Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was, I Am.”

  3. John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s name ………….”

  4. John 6:38, “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

  5. John 6:51, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven ………”

  6. John 16:28, “I came forth from the Father and have come into the world.”

  7. John 7:29, “But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me.”

  8. John 17:21, “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. [Blog Editor bold text emphasis.]

 

Your future and eternity hinge on how you respond to Christ. As Jesus declared, “If you do not believe that I am the One I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins (John 8:24).”

 

WHAT DOES SCRIPTURE CLAIM HIM TO BE?

The first chapter of the book of John nails down Jesus’ deity.

 

  1. John 1:1-5. In the beginning the Word (Jesus) already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through Him and nothing was created except through Him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
  2. John 1:10-13. He came into the very world He created, but the world didn’t recognize Him. He came to His own people, and even they rejected Him. But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God. They are re-born not from a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God (spiritual re-birth).
  3. John 1:14. And the Word became flesh (human) and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

 

WHAT PROOF DID JESUS GIVE FOR CLAIMING TO BE DIVINE? 

 

He did what no other person can do. Jesus performed miracles. He healed people; the sick, the blind, the crippled, the deaf, and raised people from the dead. He had power over objects such as creating food out of thin air, enough to feed crowds of several thousand people. He performed miracles over nature such as walking on top of a lake, changing water into wine, paying the temple tax by catching a fish with a coin in its mouth, restoring a severed ear, commanding a raging storm to stop for some friends. People everywhere followed Jesus, because He constantly met their needs, doing the miraculous. He said if you do not want to believe what I’m telling you, you should at least believe in Me based on the miracles you’re seeing.

 

In closing, I want to read to you a remarkable prophecy that the prophet Isaiah foretold about Jesus some 700 years before His birth. I think this prophecy describing the coming Messiah prophesied in Isaiah 9:6 best describes who Jesus is. Here is that familiar yet extraordinary verse of promise:

 

“For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

 

Notice how accurate this prophecy is. Two different expressions are used. It says, “a Child will be born,” but it also says; “a Son will be given.” You see, Jesus did not come into existence at the time of His human birth; He’s eternal. He’s the eternal Son of God. He was not born as the Son of God. He was given as the Son of God. But, in human terms, He was born as a child. Do you see how accurate that is?

 

The prophet Isaiah also said that God would give us a sign: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Immanuel means “God with us.” What a wonder! To think that God the Son would leave the splendor and glory of heaven and take on human flesh! That He would walk among us and show us the nature and character of the Father! That He would lay His life down for us; then through His resurrection conquered death on our behalf and gives us “life” everlasting!

 

Always remember this and never forget it: God created us and loved us so much and wanted a relationship with us, “That He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (Jn.3:16).” [Blog Editor bold text emphasis.]

 

The Bible is all about history. HIS.. STORY. Jesus, God the Son:

God with us
God in the flesh
God who came down from heaven and dwelt among us
God who made the world
God who created us
God who offers us “life” everlasting

About Oscar Leske

 

Who am I? My name is Oscar Leske, I was born in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. After graduating from high school in Drumheller, Alberta in 1965, I moved to British Columbia and later on in 1969 moved to the West Coast, to Vancouver, BC. After 31 years of marketing and sales I retired in 2002.

 

I want to begin by telling you that I’m not a pastor, preacher or minister. In fact, I’m not even a religious person, as far as religion goes, but I do love Jesus for what He’s accomplished for me on Calvary’s cross in offering me hope, salvation, reconciliation, and life eternal. It is a personal relationship with God, the Father, through His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus. Having a relationship with God has nothing to do with religion and it has everything to do with Jesus and what He’s done for us and not anything of what we can do to earn righteousness – we can only cling to His righteousness. The difference between relationship and religion is the same as the difference between done versus do. Let me explain: God did not come to earth to start a religion. He did not create us to start a religious following. As God, He needs nothing. He did not create us to be His servants as God has all the angels in heaven to look after and administer to all of His needs. The plain truth is that God doesn’t need us!  So why did He create us?  What was His purpose for creating you and me?

 

Scripture clearly tells us that God created man for His pleasure, for His fellowship, so that we can have an intimate relationship with God – it’s called love. God created you and loves you so much that He wants you to get to know Him and spend eternity with Him in fellowship. READ THE REST

A few days ago Yurki left a comment to “The Democratic Party Endangers America’s Cultural Heritage” post on my NCCR blog. Yurki’s comment had nothing to do with America’s cultural heritage, but was an amusing and correct criticism of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. To understand Yurki’s European heritage concerns, he is Finnish.

Let’s see if you agree.

Merkel Perestroika Deception

 

 

GETTING ANXIOUS

 

– In a speech at the Paris Peace Forum (on Nov. 11, 2018) that was held to observe the 100th anniversary of the end of WW I, German Chancellor Angela Merkel attacked “nationalism” and “destructive isolationism.”

 

She was clearly attacking Pres. Trump and his “America First” policies.

 

She said, “We know that most of the challenges and threats of today can no longer be solved by one nation alone (by the U.S.), but only if we act together (as a world government). That’s why we have to stand up for this kind of collaboration” (why we have to oppose Pres. Trump’s “America First” policies).

 

She added, “Close international cooperation (globalism) on the basis of shared values (one-world religion) that are enshrined in the UN charters (included in the UN documents): This is the only way to overcome the horrors of the past and pave a new future” (their New Universal Agenda).

 

Also, in Nov. 2018, it was reported that the UN Human Rights Committee has drafted a memo that calls for abortion to be made a human right and all laws that oppose abortion to be declared illegal all over the world (global laws that supersede national laws). –

Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

 

THE PAN-EUROPE

 

– Few people know that one of the main instigators of the process of European integration, was a man who also conceived the genocide of the peoples of Europe. He was a sinister individual whose existence is unknown to the masses of our people, but the political elites consider him as the founder of the European Union. His name is Richard von Coudenhove Kalergi (1894-1972). His father was an Austrian diplomat named Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi (with connections to the Byzantine family of the Kallergis), and his mother the Japanese Mitsu Aoyama.

 

Thanks to his close contacts with European aristocrats and politicians, and due to the network of relationships created by his nobleman-diplomat father, Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi was able to work unseen, away from the glare of publicity, and he managed to engage the co-operation of the most influential heads of state for his plan, making them supporters and collaborators for his “project of European integration”.

 

In 1922 he founded the “Pan-European” movement in Vienna, which aimed to create a New World Order, based on a federation of nations led by the United States. European integration would be just the first step in creating a world government. His earliest supporters included Czech politicians Tomáš Masaryk and Edvard Beneš, and the German Jewish banker Max Warburg, who invested the first 60,000 marks. The Austrian Chancellor Ignaz Seipel and the next president of Austria, Karl Renner, took early responsibility for leading the “Pan-European” movement and later, French politicians, such as Léon Blum, Aristide Briand, Alcide De Gasperi etc., offered their help.

 

With the rise of Fascism in Europe during the 1930s, the project of European integration was abandoned and the “Pan-European” movement was forced to dissolve. However, after the Second World War, and thanks to frantic and tireless activity and the support of Winston Churchill, the Jewish Masonic Lodge B’nai B’rith and major newspapers like the New York Times, Kalergi managed to gain acceptance for his plan by the United States Government and later the CIA became involved in driving the plan towards completion. –

THE UNITED STATES OF EUROPE

 

– It was always the aim of the European project, from its very inception in 1951 with the Treaty of Paris, signed on 18th April 1951 between Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France, Italy and West Germany to established the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) (which is traditionally regarded as the foundation of the EU because it led to political and economic integration to a certain degree in western Europe as well as providing the basis for the modern EU) and the March 25th 1957 signing of the Treaty of Rome to establish a fully integrated federal superstate called the United States of Europe in which the concept of individual national sovereignty for each member state is complexly destroyed and Europe becomes a single , centralised political entity ruled from Brussels. Ted Heath knew this full well when he conned the UK public into voting for entry into the then European Economic Community, supposedly just a free trading bloc and nothing else. He had been briefed by the Civil Service that membership would entail the eventual complete loss of the UK’s sovereignty and our eventual absorption into a European superstate. We were sold the European project on a tissue of lies (note well please, Anna Soubry.)

 

This deception continued in subsequent decades with politicians of all parties and political shades signing the UK up to various stages of integration into the EU. –

[Blog Editor excerpts of Romans 10 Names of God Bible (NOG):

 

If You Believe You Will Be Saved

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God on behalf of the Jewish people is that they would be saved. I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God, but they are misguided. They don’t understand how to receive God’s approval. So they try to set up their own way to get it, and they have not accepted God’s way for receiving his approval. Christ is the fulfillment of Moses’ Teachings so that everyone who has faith may receive God’s approval.

 

 

However, what else does it say? “This message is near you. It’s in your mouth and in your heart.” This is the message of faith that we spread. If you declare that Yeshua is Lord, and believe that God brought him back to life, you will be saved. 10 By believing you receive God’s approval, and by declaring your faith you are saved. 11 Scripture says, “Whoever believes in him will not be ashamed.”

 

12 There is no difference between Jews and Greeks. They all have the same Lord, who gives his riches to everyone who calls on him. 13 So then, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

 

 

16 But not everyone has believed the Good News.

 

Isaiah asks, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message that is heard is what Christ spoke.

 

 

20 Isaiah said very boldly, “I was found by those who weren’t looking for me. I was revealed to those who weren’t asking for me.” 21 Then Isaiah said about Israel, “All day long I have stretched out my hands to disobedient and rebellious people.”]

A Former Lesbian’s Moving Testimony of Breaking Free From Homosexuality


Jesus at well with Samaritan Woman

About a week ago I shared my pre-Christian lifestyle which was essentially a party-lite, pot smoking and beer guzzling lifestyle. I also related my association with some homosexual amigos that I would sometimes include as a part of the party paradigm. I reaffirmed that the Lord Jesus delivered from that lifestyle. Then, I cross posted (after my thoughts) a Charisma News article by Michael L. Brown who is a former homosexual that found the loving and saving grace of Christ Jesus. I was impressed how Mr. Brown has the very relevant ministry to minister without judgment with homosexuals.

 

I read this story also at Charisma News. Matt Barber pens a biography of a former lesbian he calls ‘Wendy’. Wendy’s story is written as if she is the person speaking sharing the conditions that led her to be attracted to the same-sex. This is another story of God not condemning but rather delivering a person to a true transformed life – an awesome read.

A Former Lesbian’s Moving Testimony of Breaking Free From Homosexuality

Pg One & Pg Two

 

[Editor’s note: I have come to know Wendy and her story through an amazing set of circumstances that only God could have arranged. She is a delightful woman who loves the Lord with all of her heart and has asked BarbWire to share her moving story of redemption and freedom from homosexual sin through the power of Christ Jesus. Wendy has said that it is her hope that her testimony might resonate with even one person who can relate to the circumstances that Satan used to lead her into the homosexual lifestyle. If you are that person, then you (and God) will know it. What the enemy intended for evil, God is using for incredible good in the life of Wendy. The same can be true for you. —Matt Barber]

 

My name is Wendy and I was born in a small town in Virginia. I was in church every time the doors were open for as far back as I can remember. I also attended the Christian school within my church that was rooted deeply in an Independent Baptist doctrine.

 

My mama was very sickly and was in and out of the hospital. I have a sister who is almost four years younger than me and a baby brother who only lived for three days and then passed away. Mama died Christmas of 1982 at the age of 32. At the time of her death, I was 11 and my sister was 7.

 

My dad was a rage-a-holic and an alcoholic. He had wanted a boy so badly and lost his one and only son. I believe he decided to make me his boy or at least that is how it seemed. Especially as I got older, he treated me differently than he did my sister. Here is an example: When I got my first car, before dad would give me the keys to drive it, I had to change the tire, without assistance, as he stood and watched. My sister, he just handed the keys.

 

My dad verbally and emotionally abused my family. He was a tyrant, and as a little girl I thought to myself, if all men are like my dad, then I want nothing to do with men. I made a vow to never get married because men were not safe.

 

Due to my family’s rigid and extremely conservative views, I knew that if I told them, they would not believe me. I remained painfully silent about being sexually abused. Satan stole my innocence, and I was exposed to things that I never should have been. As a young child, I was attracted to women. My silence allowed Satan to cultivate a huge lie that confused my sexual identity. It was the birth of unnatural desires that would later manifest into full blown homosexuality.

 

I was in so much pain and confusion that one day I found some relief … with alcohol. I finally found something that would numb me and I could check out of reality. My drinking continued to get worse and worse. It is only by God’s grace and mercy that I did not get a DUI, go to jail, kill somebody or myself.

 

I suffered with depression and often struggled with suicidal thoughts. One night I was drinking and was holding my loaded gun, trying to talk myself into pulling the trigger. God saved me that night from taking my life with a phone call. I fully believe I was going to kill myself that night but God’s loving grace and mercy poured out over me.

 

I had my first consensual sexual experience with a girl at the age of 15. This led me into one unhealthy relationship after another. But sleeping with women was “safe” for me. It was the easy way out considering my fear and hatred toward men. All of those relationships ended the same way; with shame, regret, hurt, unmet expectations, broken promises and emotional pain. Yeah, all that and then some! And to top it all off, I tried to drink it all away. The lie I bought from Satan was that I just hadn’t found the right girl … I just needed to find her. The problem was that there was no right girl. I was absolutely, completely out of the will of God and His divine plan for my life.

 

One day a girl who I was trying to hook up with invited me to church, and I strongly declined. She continued to ask me … So, I asked her, “If I agree to go with you to church ONE TIME, AND I DO MEAN ONE TIME, will you please stop asking me to go to church with you?” She agreed that if I would go one time that she would never ask me again, so I went. I remember it was in February 2007 on a Wednesday night. I cried like a baby through worship and for the first time in my entire life, I felt like I was HOME. I belonged.

 

I continued to go to church every time the doors opened. In April 2007, I rededicated my life to Christ. As a small child, I had made an emotional decision to be saved. I know today that I had never truly surrendered my life to follow Christ.

 

The Lord blessed me when I found a group of believers who struggle with same-sex attraction who truly loved me with no judgment and taught me the root causes of SSA. God’s grace and His unfailing love is what set me free from the bondage of homosexuality. He gave me a way out. God has totally redeemed me and saved me from the chains of alcohol addiction and sexual sin. My heavenly Father began and will continue to heal all my hurts and fill the voids. I stand victorious and a child of the Most High King!!! Not because I deserve it but because I have a Savior who loved me first, while I was still a sinner. I have decided to walk and follow Christ. I will not let my past define me because I am who God says. I am beloved, cherished, a princess and daughter of the Lord, God Almighty!!! Thank you, Jesus, for saving me from a life that was leading me straight to hell.

 

(BarbWire has chosen to withhold Wendy’s last name to protect her from the “LGBT” attack machine. Nobody hates like the “tolerant” left.)
