Rev 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
WE NEED TO MORE NOW THAN NEVER BEFORE BE IN LOVE WITH THE LORD
Rev 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
THIS TOOK PLACE IN A CHURCH SETTING (REVELATION 2:1-29 – THE PROBLEM WITH THE APOSTELS IS THAT THEY WERE, PART OF A CHURCH BUT THEY LIED
IF PEOPLE LIE THEY ARE A LIAR – THERE IS A LOT OF LYING GOING ON IN TODAYS CHURCHES – IF THEY CANNOT BACK IT UP WITH SCRIPTURE THEY LIE
ON TV THEY HAD MASTER PROPHETS WHO TOLD PEOPLE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEM – IT WASN’T BACKED UP BY SCRIPTURE – THE PEOPLE WATCHING SWALLOWED IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER – WHY – BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE HAVE NEVER READ THE BIBLE
THE BELOW SCRIPTURE DESCRIBES THE LACODIAN CHURCH
say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Rev 2:3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Rev 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Rev 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Rev 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
Rev 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
Rev 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
Rev 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Rev 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
Rev 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Rev 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Rev 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
Rev 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
Rev 2:24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
Rev 2:25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
Rev 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
Rev 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Rev 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.
Rev 2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD TO DO SOMETHING THATS AGAINST YOUR WILL – THATS WITCHCRAFT
NO ONE SHOULD COME TO YOUR HOUSE TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO IF THEY DO ITS OF THE DEVIL AND WITCHCRAFT
GOD DID NOT PUT US HERE TO BE A BUNCH OF DUMMIES
THE ABOVE CHURCH WAS TOLD BUY PAUL, THAT HE KNEW ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE DOING OUT OF OBLIGATION
JUST LIKE GOING IN THE MILITARY AND BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO – THERE IN THE MILITARY YOU HAVE THAT OBLIGATION
BUT IN THE CHURCH WE SHOULD BE DOING THINGS OUT OF OUR LOVE FOR CHRIST – NOT OUT OF OBLIGATION
WHEN YOU DO SOMETHING FOR OTHERS OUT OF LOVE YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR FEELINGS HURT
MAN UP WHEN YOU GET YOUR FEELINGS HURT – GET OVER IT – BE A MAN ABOUT IT
FOR INSTANCE IF A WOMAN TELLS YOU NO THEY MEAN IT – TO KEEP DOING WHATEVER IT WAS THAT MADE THEM SAY NO WILL CAUSE YOU GREAT HARDSHIP
IF THE LORD CALLS UPON YOU TO DO SOMETHING DO IT OUT OF LOVE
PEOPLE NEED TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE LORD TODAY NOT YESTERDAY
ARE YOU BORN AGAIN – DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS
MOST CHURCHES TODAY NEVER TEACH WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BORN AGAIN THEY ARE TO BUSY COUNTING THEIR COLLECTION PLATE MONEY

Matthew 28:9 AND AS THEY WENT TO TELL HIS DISCIPLES, BEHOLD, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
Matthew 28:9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
Catholic Utopian Socialists – Fraudulent Use of Faith Now The Norm
By WILLIAM MAYER
The Catholic University of America is sponsoring a symposium [120th Anniversary of Rerum Novarum: Church, Labor, and the New Things of the Modern World, http://ipr.cua.edu/RN120th.cfm%5D dealing with Catholic social justice teaching on May 2nd and 3rd at the university’s Pryzbyla Center.
Increasingly, since Vatican II, the Catholic “social justice” movement has been the refuge of politicized theologians eager to reorder the planet in a utopian manner. They do this under the guise of an invented moral authority which only gives lip service to Christian orthodoxy.
[Note: A comprehensive study of the steady march to the left by the Church since Rerum Novarum, by this writer is available at, Bitter Harvest: How Marxist “Progressives” Have Infiltrated the American Catholic Church at http://www.religiousleftexposed.com ]
The keynote speaker’s list is anything but eclectic, with the deck slanted heavily towards those with a hard-left/socialist perspective, starting with John Sweeney.

Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill – A Nice Pro-Life Bill If There Is No God
The pro-life movement in the United States has proven its willingness to push one person out of the boat in order to try to save another. In our compromise, we become the greatest hindrance to occupying the Promised Land of liberty and justice for all. In our capitulation to arbitrary standards that reek of godlessness, we become accomplices in the Abortion Holocaust and violators of the spirit of the sixth commandment……

Where Is President Obama Leading Us? By Jeffrey R. Camino Learn Bible Prophecy Ministries
President Obama has demonstrated that he has the moral and political fortitude to push his own agenda, regardless of the wishes of most Americans. We need only look to the Health Care Bill which was passed despite obvious opposition by the American people. Many elected officials in the Legislative Branch made deals, bowed to political pressure from the White House, and essentially ignored what their constituents wanted. It was one of the major reasons so many democrat incumbents who assisted in doing so were voted out of office in the recent elections. It’s a topic all its own and I only use it to set up the thesis of another important matter…
Presenting the New Mormonism with the Same Old Heresies By Eric Barger Take A Stand! Ministries
As I and others have carefully documented, virtually all of the cults and religions of the world embrace various misconceptions of Jesus.  Regardless of all of the differing viewpoints, biblical Christianity alone understands and accepts Him as Creator, Savior, and above all, God. Of the many variations of Jesus ascribed to by those in the religious world, none is more misleading and deceptive than the Jesus of Mormonism….
Benny Hinn: A Catholic Mystic Joseph Chambers
The world of Benny Hinn is a strange and mystical world. He fits perfectly into the category of a Charismatic Catholic priest, dispensing theological bondage and unbiblical superstition A noted ministry described a past Benny Hinn three (3) hour video which presented him “as a ‘twentieth century’ ‘Holy of Holies’, a ‘point of contact’ for the power and anointing of God, much as Roman Catholic priests were presented during medieval times.” (The Confusing World of Benny Hinn, p. 79.) They also suggested that he is becoming a kind of “Charismatic Pope.”
There are a host of problems in the Benny Hinn world, but nothing is more dangerous than his Catholic style and theology. Kathryn Kuhlman was clearly the first public Charismatic to merge Catholic ideas and support with her Charismatic operation. Benny Hinn considers himself a benefactor and model of the Kuhlman mystic. Oral Roberts said on the three hour Hinn video, “I saw Kathryn Kuhlman as unparalleled”, implying that Hinn is greater than Kuhlman. Roberts then spoke of himself as having God’s power … in his right hand, but said of Hinn, his anointing “fills the building … a greater level has come.”
Benny Hinn And Catholic Confusion: There is not an organization on the face of this earth that is more thoroughly demonic than Catholicism. It is riddled with heathen teachings and doctrines of devils. Yet, Hinn proudly stated, “My upbringing, of course, was Catholic in that I attended the Catholic school in Jaffa, Israel. And so my mentality basically is a Catholic mentality. When I was born again, I was Catholic in my ways. I was very Catholic in my ideas, in my behavior.” (Christianity Today, Sept. 3, 1991.) Indeed, the mysticism that accompanies Hinn’s ministry, and according to his own words, has done so since the first time he spoke publicly is in the very style of a medieval mystic….
The Judgment of God is falling on America Bill Keller
The judgment of God is falling, it is time to seize the opportunity! Only the spiritually dead or those who simply deny the existence of God can’t see that what this nation is facing is the beginning of God’s judgment for our sins and wickedness. I actually laugh each time I hear some “genius” on TV talking about when this current economic crisis will be over and things will be “back to normal.” I have news for the experts; things are NEVER going to be “back to normal,” and the ONLY hope we have to see anything but the total destruction of life as we have known it, is to get on our knees, repent, and turn back to God and His Truth….
Did Jesus Say Anything About The Rapture Daymond Duck, Prophecy Plus Ministries
People have told me they don’t believe in the Rapture because Jesus never talked about it. But is that really true?
For one thing, it may be a stretch, but Paul talked about the Rapture and it is quite possible that he got his information from Jesus. When was on the road to Damascus Jesus appeared unto him and said, “rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee” (Acts 26:16). Jesus commissioned Paul to witness to what he had seen and what he would see in the future. Some might say Jesus didn’t reveal the Rapture to Paul in the future, but there is evidence that he did….
Are You a Blessing or Mistake?
If the theory of Evolution is correct then mankind lacks purpose. Yet the Bible teaches otherwise. This week on Prophecy Update Radio Bill Salus discusses the fallacies of evolution with creation expert Dr. Jobe Martin. Dr. Martin is the author of “The Evolution of a Creationist,” and a graduate from Dallas Theological Seminary.
The listener will appreciate Dr. Martin’s ability to combine scripture and creation examples to dispel evolution arguments. During this fascinating program he illustrates how the fingerprints of God are observable throughout all of creation leaving man no alternative, but to recognize his Creator.

The Internet, television, and video games have become societies surrogate parents. The apostle Paul warned the days of disobedient children and dysfunctional families would arrive, and Don warns they have already come. Don Mcgee is the founder of Crown and Sickle Ministries….
New EU regulations on herbal medicines come into force
New regulations mean many herbal remedies will no longer be available over the counter
New European Union rules have come into force banning hundreds of traditional herbal remedies.
The EU law aims to protect consumers from possible damaging side-effects of over-the-counter herbal medicines.
For the first time, new regulations will allow only long-established and quality-controlled medicines to be sold.
But both herbal remedy practitioners and manufacturers fear they could be forced out of business.
To date, the industry has been covered by the 1968 Medicines Act, drawn up when only a handful of herbal remedies were available and the number of herbal practitioners was very small.
But surveys show that about a quarter of all adults in the UK have used a herbal medicine in the past two years, mostly bought over the counter in health food shops and pharmacies.
The regulations will cover widely used products such as echinacea, St John’s Wort and valerian, as well as traditional Chinese and Indian medicines.
Herbal remedies that have been approved for sale under the new regulations will come with this logo
But safety concerns have focused on the powerful effects of some herbal remedies, as well as the way they interact with conventional drugs.
For example, St John’s Wort can interfere with the contraceptive pill, while ginkgo and ginseng are known to have a similar effect to the blood-thinning drug warfarin.
From now on only products that have been assessed by the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) will be allowed to go on sale.
Manufacturers will have to prove that their products have been made to strict standards and contain a consistent and clearly marked dose.
And to count as a traditional medicine, products must have been in use for the past 30 years, including 15 years within the EU.
They will also only be approved for minor ailments like coughs and colds, muscular aches and pains, or sleep problems….
Forget the Birth Certificate—Where is Your Belly Button, Barack?
By Kelly O’Connell
Lefties across America heaved a communal sigh of relief when Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate was put online for the world to see. In fact, very few even seemed to mind the obvious eBay price-tag in one corner, or the Made in China watermark where a seal should have been, on the other. Even the fact the attending physician had the same name as Uday and Qusay’s personal doctor did not seem to dampen the spirits of the celebrants. But a new Barack birth issue has already raised its ugly head, but this time it’s physiological. Namely, whither goes Obama’s Belly Button? …
Pageantry, History, and Change
By Alan Caruba Full Story
Last week ended in pageantry that altered history in ways the whole world could take notice, vicariously participate, and absorb into the collective conscience. On Friday the heir to the British throne married and a former commoner became the future queen of England. The world rejoiced.
On Sunday, Pope John Paul was beatified, a step toward sainthood, in an expedited Vatican process that was a response to the crowds who gathered at his funeral on April 8, 2005 and cried out “Santos Subito!” Sainthood now.
The evening before was the annual black-tie White House Correspondent’s Association Dinner, a gathering whose humble beginnings reflected the job of covering the presidency. The Association was formed in 1914 in response to news that President Wilson wanted to hold regular press conferences, but wasn’t sure who should attend. The reporters wanted to make sure they made that decision. They held their first dinner in 1920 and, in 1924, Calvin Coolidge was the first President to attend….

Race, Fantasy, and the New Yorker’s Editor
By Jack Cashill
A New Yorker article by editor David Remnick gives away the game in the headline, “Trump, Birtherism, And Race-Baiting.”
According to Remnick, the “irrepressible jackass” Trump has inspired idiot America to believe a series of fantasies about Barack Obama: “There is the birther fantasy; the fantasy that Bill Ayers wrote “Dreams from My Father”; the fantasy that the President has some other father, and not Barack Obama, Sr.; the fantasy that Obama got into Harvard Law School with the help of a Saudi prince and the Nation of Islam.” Remnick adds as a Harvard subset the fantasy that Obama is “intellectually incapable….
