Please do not hoard the truth. Do not hide your light under a bushel. Do not be indifferent to all of our kinsmen who are in danger and perishing. If you find value in this website, share the links with everyone that you know (and ask them to do the same). You are not responsible before God for results, but you are responsible for daily faithfulness.
The Left is winning because the majority of God’s people (even those who delude themselves into thinking that they are Patriots) are apathetic and cowardly and cheap. The Left is not afraid to open their wallet and support those promoting Lefist agendas. The Left is not afraid to get on a bus and go protest, or even commit crimes and go to jail. Yet our people are too apathetic and cowardly to even whisper a few words of truth, be evangelists, or even share the link to this website, email address, and mailing address. If merely 10 people a day told another 10 people, and those 10 told another 10, —in only 5 days that would be 1 million people knowing about this website and ministry. You reap what you sow. Sadly, our entire nation is reaping death and destruction and die-versity because our people remain silent in the face of militant anti-Christian, anti-white, anti-morality terrorism. Crawling into a ball and hiding will not protect you—especially if you are violating all that God commanded about supporting His ministers and helping stand in the gap, seek out the lost sheep, and warn of evil.
If you don’t find value in these pages, why are you here?
If you do find value in these pages, why are you content to “graze for free” in this fine pasture of mine, instead of obeying God and supporting the ministers who are doing all of the work and preaching the Full Counsel of the Word of God, fearlessly, zealously, and without shame? Why don’t you want to order books on a regular basis and learn more?
“For unto us was the Gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” (Hebrews 4:2)
“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26)
The enemy / the leftists / the Antichrists / the savages are winning because they are not lazy or selfish or apathetic or cowardly and they support the wicked causes that they believe in.
How sad that the Antichrist enemy is more dedicated and believes greater in his cause than do God's people. You reap what you sow—and it is that apathy and disobedience to God that is destroying Christendom.
“...when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith [yet] on the Earth?” (Luke 18:8)
“22But be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the Perfect Law of Liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” (James 1)
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them...” (Matthew 7:12)
“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” (Luke 6:31)
“...the labourer is worthy of his hire” (Luke 10:17)
“Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the Word and Doctrine.” (I Timothy 5:17)
“8Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed Me. But ye say, ‘Wherein have we robbed Thee?’ In tithes and offerings. 9Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation. 10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine House, and prove Me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the Windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. 12And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Malachi 3)
“24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed’ [strewn] .... 26His lord answered and said unto him, ‘Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed [strewn]’.” (25)
It was actually AN INSULT for the slothful servant to FALSELY ACCUSE his lord of reaping where he had not sown. What is it called when you reap where you have not sown...? It is called ‘theft’, if you don’t own the property; if you put your sheep into someone else’s pasture to feed; if you harvest someone else’s crop. What would it be called if you went into a restaurant and ate a meal and left without paying?
The lord here saying, “thou knowest” does not refer to reality; it refers to the false perception / evil thoughts in the wicked servant’s mind. The slothful servant was jealous and bitter. It is correct that the master himself did not sow the seed—he had servants to do that. The servant resented it.
God even provided for the dumb ox that treaded out the grain, that it be not muzzled (Deuteronomy 25:4).
See also Luke 12:17-19.
Again, the same principle applies concerning the Law of the Harvest in that the husbandman has a holy right to eat, even first, of his labors and produce.
“And why call ye Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46)
“Let the redeemed of the LORD say so...” (Psalm 107:2)
“Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.” (Romans 13:7)
“6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him: 7Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2)
“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26)
“40... Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me. .... 45... Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.” (Matthew 25)
“Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.” (Proverbs 21:13)
If there is any interest to support this ministry, inquire. It takes 10, 20, even 100 hours to write some articles / Ruminations / poems. How many of the readers of this website would work 20 to 100 hours—for free, on a regular basis...? Numerous postings here are available in booklet form and in books, if any care about the lost sheep, to help evangelize them, if, perchance, God removes the scales from their eyes, removes their heart of stone to give them a heart of flesh, peradventure, God grant them repentence to acknowledging the truth—and enables them to submit to it and God. If God delivers them from not being like the rich young ruler, who considered the purchase of the Pearl of Great Price, but went away, without making it his own; choosing instead to shop at the bargain table a little farther down the road. Those who “pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” do not even understand what peace entails. Peace entails the adjudication of criminal offenses committed. Christ is our Peace; but those who do not live according to all that God commanded do not know God (says John); and their faith is a fraud (says James). It is not “faith + works [obedience to the Law of God] = salvation”. It is: True Faith that comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit produces works, fruit, obedience to the Law of God. It means that if the Holy Spirit has truly regenerated a child of God—He commandeers the body, the mind, the life; and that regenerated child of God walks where the Spirit is walking.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10)
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21)
“Therefore thou shalt keep the Commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in His Ways, and to fear Him.” (Deuteronomy 8:6)
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16)
True faith, true repentance, true love, true appreciation produces fruit—the fruit that God commanded: obedience. Not the world’s fruit, not the world’s “peace”, not the world’s notion of “luv”, not the world’s notion of “goodness”.
If your pastor is not providing the information that you need, cannot answer your questions, does not teach the FULL Counsel of the Word of God, and if he is not being a Watchman on the Wall—then why is he your pastor and why are you reading here?
Do you pray? Do you believe in prayer? Do you believe in the Promises concerning prayer in God’s Word? Do you believe in the monumental Judgment that God’s Word says shall befall us in the last days? Do you live each day in obedience to all that God commanded in order to please Him, and secure His Protection in these evil days? What do you even believe? If you are not living it, you do not believe it.
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
If you find a great restaurant or watch a great movie or hear a great song... do you not want to share it with every significant person in your life? Why then do you not share the truth with them? If you were the one in blindness (who knows, maybe you still are, if the truth has not touched and changed you) would you not want the significant others in your life to share the truth with you, if they knew it? Christ said,
“...because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:16)
This means, “Ye shall have no part in Me”.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
William Law (1686-1761), English cleric, divine, theologian, and author, offers some very terse, but true words, in regard to the righteousness and obedience of professing believers; in his, The Power of the Spirit,* he wrote:
[* The Power of the Spirit (c.1750) William Law (edited by Dave Hunt, 1967, Switzerland) 189pp. pb. 12.00 + P&H. Originally titled, An Affectionate Address to the Clergy (1761)]
“[The average Christian possesses] ... blind believism which imagines faith to consist of a mere idea rightly affirmed with the lips, but knows nothing of a real faith that possesses within the heart. So men imagine that to believe in Jesus Christ is something that can be done apart from obeying Him, because they do not know Him as the Lord who reigns and lives within. As well imagine that a command is only to be believed but not obeyed, or that a tree is not known by its fruit. ‘I will show you my faith by my works,’ said the apostle; and if this is the only way faith can be shown, then any faith which is not thus one with its works is no faith at all.
“James said, ‘As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.’ Most pointedly this Scripture makes clear that devoutness and piety do not consist in a mere right understanding of these things that a man may profess without the fruits thereof, for works cannot be separated from its faith, or James could show his faith alone without its works. He only is the devout man who lives no longer to his own will or the way and spirit of the world, but to the will of God alone. He who considers God in everything, serves God in everything, who makes every moment of his daily life a real part of God’s will on earth by doing everything in the name of Christ; he alone can be called the pious man. For if a man say he has faith, but does not evidence a life that produces the works of God, James tells us most emphatically that ‘faith alone’ cannot save him.* (pp. 180-181.)
[* ie. such a fruitless faith is counterfeit; not real (false life). R.A.B.]
“....So it is that for lack of this basic intention to surrender all to Christ, the church today is an open fraud of mere lip profession to that faith and divine love that once burned as a fire from heaven in those who ‘turned the world upside down.’
“If you will but stop to ask yourself why your brand of Christianity is hardly recognizable as related to that which primitive Christians knew, your own heart will tell you that it is primarily because you never thoroughly intended to live as they lived and to
die as they died. You sing of your devotion to the same Lord, and profess to believe the same New Testament doctrines as the early
disciples. You have the same promises from the Lord of the fulness of the Spirit, the divine nature, and all that pertains to life and godliness. You would never hope to get to heaven through a faith any different than theirs, but you have believed Satan’s lie that it is possible to have the same faith as the first Christians without manifesting the same works as they. And if you are honest you will admit that this lie has been gladly received because you have not really had the heart intention to walk as Jesus walked.* Did you but have this intention to please God in all your actions, as being the happiest and best choice for life in this world, you would then find yourself as unwilling to deny Christ with your life as you are now unwilling to deny Him with your lips. And would you but add to this intention a simple faith in the promises of God in Christ, you would find yourself living in the same denial of self and as contrary to the world as fishermen apostles did in their day.” (pp.,182-183.)
[* Wow. Amen! So many professed believers today are like the rich young ruler who went away sad, not wanting to sacrifice what he deemed more important in life, in order to truly follow Christ. R.A.B.]
“....the question is not whether gospel perfection can be fully attained, but whether you come as near it as a sincere intention and careful diligence can carry you through faith in Christ. .... Can you really call yourself a follower of Christ without at least intending to follow Him all the way? .... Can a man who has this saving faith then fail to manifest those works which the Scripture so plainly tells us are the direct consequence of the new creation? .... that man who does not so much as intend to manifest in all his ways these works which God has ordained for him has denied the very faith which he otherwise professes. .... Works without faith is the dead and unacceptable offering of the sinful flesh; and faith without works is a fraud, a false profession of that which is dead because it does not have the life of God in it; and this is proven by the lack of fruit of the Spirit. God holds out to our faith the blessing and power of the Holy Spirit as our all in all, filling us with the life of Christ, causing us to overflow with rivers of living water.” (pp.186,188,189)
I have laboured for 32 years, around 90 hours a week, with a mere handful of supporters and a handful of people who order books. I have spent over 100,000 hours to produce all that I have produced, and sacrificed all to print the 180+ books that I have written and thousands that I have reprinted. What do you do for the Kingdom? Do you support those doing the work? Do you even help spread the word? Those who do nothing for it, quite possibly, shall not be granted entrance. Those who place such little value on the truth—who have not, as the Pearl of Great Price, sacrificed all to obtain it, are not worthy of it. To such, it is mere head knowledge, a quaint, nostalgic idea—to them, it is not everything; and thus, it is not much at all. They go about their own lives, as the rich young ruler, pursuing their own pleasures, leaving the truth behind, though entertaining fond feelings for it.
“24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25When once the Master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open unto us’; and He shall answer and say unto you, ‘I know you not whence ye are’: 26Then shall ye begin to say, ‘We have eaten and drunk in Thy Presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets’. 27But He shall say, ‘I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me, all ye workers of iniquity’. 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the Kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.” (Luke 13)
