2020 year of Uniting; Decision; Separation 1/20/20

This decade may start the last years till Jesus returns


As we begin this year of 2020, we must remember one important thing; though our Heavenly Father brought peace to the world on the night Jesus was born; Jesus did not come into the world to bring peace to it until He comes in power to rule over the world. He came to bring us peace with our God; a peace beyond human understanding, a joy which can never be taken from us.

*“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.  And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Matt 10:34-36 ESV+

*"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. "He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it. Matt 10:37-39 NASB+


Uniting together all children of God who are part of Christ’s One Holy Spiritual Church; those who love our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit above all things. And because we love our God above all things; we will obey our Heavenly Father’s commands as taught to us by Jesus, as put in our hearts by the Holy Spirit in God’s Word.

*"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Matt 22:36-39 NIV+

* If you love me, you will keep my commandmentsAnd I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forevereven the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. Jn 14:15-17 ESV+

*For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak." Jn 12:49-50 NKJV+


We must let the Holy Spirit guide us first and foremost by the whole context of the Word of God, the Bible, to show us how our God would have us live. For it alone tells us how we can become and remain children of God, and inherit Heaven. Any who will strive to live by the words of Jesus, Paul, and the rest of the authors and prophets in the Bible; become children of God, are heirs of Heaven. While those  who reject Jesus words and the gospel Paul wrote in the Bible; try to live by the worldly intelligence of man will be condemned to Hell on the last day.

*"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. Jn 14:6 NASB+

Jesus words

"As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. Jn 12:47-49 NIV+ 

Paul’s gospel

*on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus. Ro 2:16 NASB+


All who have the Holy Spirit living in our hearts within our spiritual beings are spiritually united together as saints, including being united with the spiritual beings of all believers who have physically died and their spiritual being has gone to Heaven. We are all saints, children of God united together in the body of Christ; His One Holy Eternal Spiritual Church.

* You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. Ro 8:9-10 NIV+

*so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Ro 12:5 NASB+


We should always remember we are united together with billions of brothers and sisters; both on earth and in Heaven. This will include all saints (believers) who are part of our family, friends, and those we worship with. This will include all of those we love who have moved away, some we have not had contact with for years, yet still love and remember them, all believers we love who have died and their spiritual beings taken to Heaven by Jesus. And all the new brothers and sisters we are going to meet in Heaven; including believing parents meeting their unborn children for the first time. 

*so that He may establish your hearts without blame in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints. 1Thess 3:13 NASB+

*Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, Eph 2:19 NKJV+


Decision; we must reach out to those who are undecided, those who have not heard about Jesus, have not accepted Him or will not live their lives according to God’s Word. Especially those who are part of our family, our friends, and some we may be worshipping with; yet are not willing to submit to our God, give up their worldly lifestyle, or their pride to put Jesus first in their lives; willing to die for Jesus. Yet they are still receptive to God, just have not surrendered their will to Him; have not received the Holy Spirit in their hearts or Jesus as their Lord.

*And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? Mk 8:34-36 ESV+

*Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. 1Co 12:3 NKJV+


We must in a loving, and least confrontational way possible, let them know we do not approve of their beliefs, their lifestyle; and do not want their beliefs or lifestyles to become part of our lives, come into our homes. We must continue to love and pray for them, talking with them about other things we have in common; hoping to have a peaceful dialog with them about our God. Yet we must always stand up for Jesus, living as He would have us live.

*Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 2Co 6:14-15 NKJV+

*"Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Matt 10:32-34 NKJV+


We must help the younger generation, who are seeking independence on their own; who are susceptible to accept the false truths now being taught by many professors, teachers in our public schools, as well as our church schools, which conflict with the truths found in the Bible. The younger generation is now following and promoting the false worldly ideas of these teachers, which enables them to gratify their own sinful desires, which pulls them away from God, keeps them from becoming or remaining children of God.

*For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 2Ti 4:3-4 NASB+

*Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the worldFor since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 1Co 1:20-21 NIV+


Separation; we should love, pray, and try to help all come to Jesus; yet as children of God we must strive to live our lives as our Heavenly Father told us to in the words of the Bible. We will be different, for we will separate ourselves by not participating in, supporting, or becoming part of anything which goes against our God’s will as written in the Bible.

*“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. Lk 6:27-28 ESV+

*Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” 2Co 6:17-18 ESV+


This includes separation from those who participate in, promote, or are part of abortion (murder of an unborn baby) and sexual immorality; which includes adultery, lust, homosexuality, or having sexual relations with one of the opposite sex, without a commitment to become one with them until your spouse dies.

*But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, 1Ti 1:8-10 NASB+


Abortion - sexual immorality: Homosexuality - Adultery – Lust - Keeping pure until marriage number 16-35


Jesus confirms that His Father hates the sin of murder, the abomination of homosexuality.

*"But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." Rev 21:8 NASB+

*If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. Lev 20:13 NKJV+


Paul confirms exactly what homosexuality involves; that a woman having sexual relations with a woman is also wrong

*Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomitesnor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 1Co 6:9-10 NKJV+

*For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. Ro 1:26-27 NKJV+


This does not mean we can separate ourselves from all those who do not worship our God, who believe abortion, sexually immorality, are an acceptable part of life, are acceptable to our God; for they will always be around us in this world. We should try to reach out to them with love in the least confrontational way possible; tell them how God loves all people, the joy and peace we have knowing Jesus has prepared a place in Heaven for us. Never denying Jesus, never participating, supporting or being part of anything which is not God pleasing; which will justify those sinning, cause others to sin.

*I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world
*Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
Heb 12:14-15 NIV+

*So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. Matt 10:32-33 ESV+


We should also be careful of our association with those who claim to be our brothers and sisters in Christ, but are not; if they continue to practice, promote, or support; abortion, sexual immorality, or any other sins. We should try to bring them back to Jesus, but must keep them from spreading their false messages to the weaker believers we worship with, those in our families and homes, especially the teenagers and children. While telling all how the love of God has changed our lives; as we strive to sin less, while acknowledging the sins we do, to avoid being a hypocrite and pushing any away from Jesus. For evil beliefs of one inside the earthly church, within groups worshiping together, or in families, can infect others; even unbelievers from coming to God. 

*But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindlernot even to eat with such a one. 1Co 5:9-11 ESV+

*For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person." 1Co 5:12-13 NKJV+

*You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truthThis persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. Gal 5:7-9 NASB+


This is especially true of the younger generation who have been taught the Word of God, but are now facing the worldly lies of satan. They are being taught the humanistic beliefs of professors, teachers, leaders, even some who claim to be Christian, which are not Biblical. The Hollywood elite, social media, many of the modern music idols, and the peer pressure around this generation promote the modern cultural lies of self-gratification. So now many of the younger generation are seeking out pastors, teachers, leaders, who ease their consciences by mixing the Word of God with the intellect and instincts of an imperfect human mind; so they all can enjoy the sinful passions of this world.

*For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2Ti 4:3-4 ESV+

*Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Ro 1:32 NIV+


Most of the traditional earthly churches are declining, many splitting apart on the different positions about abortion, sexual immorality, (especially homosexuality). Those who use the Word of God are against both; those who only partially use the Word of God mixed in with their own human intelligence believe they are not sinful.  

We must separate ourselves from any who do not follow the Word of God, for only through the Bible can the Holy Spirit help us find our God, follow our God the rest of our lives. It does not matter if you worship with a large congregation, or only a few who gather together in the Lord; just make sure you faith is based on the Bible, where the love, truth, and peace of our God will fill you to overflowing.  


This same battle is politically splitting us apart in the world; especially in the U.S. It has become a spiritual battle with the demonic ideology of socialism being embraced by the Democratic Party. The right for the government to rule over all aspects in our lives including religion; its highest priority is the right of abortion on demand (murder of unborn babies), without any restrictions, and payed for by the government (our tax dollars).

They also want to restrict our religious freedoms by allowing abortion, the sexual immorality of heterosexuality (LGBTQ) override our religious beliefs; make believer’s go against their beliefs by performing abortions, by providing services we believe our God would not have us do. They want to silence us in our colleges, schools, social media, and in any public setting; even reading certain verses from the Bible if our services are opened to the public; by calling God’s Word hate speech.



*Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. Eph 5:11-12 ESV+


We do not feel we are exaggerating when we say the Democratic Party has demonic ideology; for they are supporting murder and sexual immorality which are demonic.  This is illustrated by them bringing witches to the Senate offices to put curses, spells upon senators so they would vote against Supreme Court Judge Kavanaugh because he would not agree to allow abortion on demand. While next door Republicans brought Christian leaders to pray for Senators to pray for this nominee who would consider limiting abortion. We hope and pray that the Democratic Party will reverse its pledge to initiate unlimited abortions, paid for by the government; and support our rights to have religious freedom once more.

*Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolvesYou will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistlesMatt 7:15-16 ESV+

*But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, 1Ti 1:8-10 NASB+


We do not approve of President Trump’s demeanor or language, and hope the Christian leaders he is meeting with, praying with; can help him overcome this. Yet Jesus tells one should be judged on the fruit that they produce; and President Trump has bore good fruit with his policies; supports limiting or ending abortion, believes it is the murder of a baby, has supported religious freedom for us more than any other President has; even brought it before the United Nations. Our economy is great, has the lowest unemployment rate for minorities ever; has established better trade agreements with other countries for us. 

*So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. Matt 7:17 ESV+

*"A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. "So then, you will know them by their fruits. Matt 18:20 NASB+


Do not believe the stories of the liberal media; especially not NBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, or the liberal press. Even be careful with Fox news, though it is more fair and balanced. The liberals have a hatred towards President Trump, those of us who will not follow their socialistic views, their holy grail of the government allowing abortion on demand and paying for it. They will do anything to get rid of him; we must pray for President Trump, support him with our votes. While praying for all his enemies that they may lose their hate for him, and come back to the God pleasing values our country needs.

We must first get rid of the plank of abortion which continues to murder 650,000 to 1 million per year; has already murdered 30 million to 60 million in the years since it was made legal in 1973, this is detestable to our God. God will also want us to have religious freedoms so we can worship Him; not have to submit ourselves to the sexual immorality which has engulfed the U.S. Then we should look at the speck Trump has, with his language and attitude.

*And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother's eye. Lk 6:41-42 NKJV+


We should let everyone know as God’s children we are different; be separate from those who approve of abortion and follow the sexually immorality of this world. For how can we drink the cup of the Lord with those who support murder, sexual immorality, taking our right to worship our God as we please? Those who are ashamed of Jesus, the words in the Bible; Jesus will also be ashamed of them when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.

*You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's table and the table of demons. 1Co 10:21 NIV+

*For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." Mk 8:38 NKJV+


We are in the End Times coming and they are very close, and we know we will lose this spiritual battle we are fighting. Socialism will usher in the War of Gog (See 2b.), followed by 3½ years of the 2prophets/witnesses, and the 3½ year tribulation rule of beast/antichrist/man of sin. Then Jesus will return in the clouds for us, give us glorified bodies, and take us home to Heaven to be with Him forever. The only reason we must continue our fight against the demonic spiritual onslaught is we must always stand up for Jesus; is to preserve more time to bring others to Jesus, before our government becomes a socialist country who does not put our God first.

*Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1Co 15:51-53 NKJV+

*For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christwho will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Phil 3:20-21 NKJV+


May you all have a blessed New Year of 2020, and below are some verses to put in your heart.


*For this reason I kneel before the Fatherfrom whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner beingso that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in lovemay have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Eph 4:14-19 NIV+
