Religious Blindness


Matthew 23v27-28: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees! Hypocrites! Which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones and of all uncleanness: Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity."

Luke 6v39: "And He spake a parable unto them, can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?"

Dear friends and fellow-labourers it is sad that in this enlightened age of great technological advancement that the blind leaders of the blind followers have not been equally enlightened.

You may think I am referring to wicked cults that abduct children from their parents and sell them into sexual slavery while indoctrinating them with cult philosophy. Indeed there are many of those abounding in this world.

But no! I am referring to those who are the wolves in sheep's clothing who lay hard financial burdens upon their sheep while living in luxury with personal planes and yachts. Their doctrines are laced with lies and half truths.

There are some that annually make a pilgrimage to the tombs of Katherine Kuhlmann and Amy Semple MacPherson to lie upon those graves to catch the anointing from their dead bones. One of these men was taped uttering a death curse against another minister who questioned his integrity. The anointing of the Holy Spirit comes from God the Father, not dead bones.

This man is a famous TBN preacher who is a household name the world over but he is one to whom Jesus will say on the Day of Judgment "I never knew you" and all those blind sheep who slavishly follow him in his errors will join him there in hell.

So many of our famous name preachers are Freemasons on assignment to undermine the faith and commitment of Christians in these last days. They are connected to the advancement of the "Toronto 'Blessing'" or Catch the Fire ministries. Google their names and see what they are involved in. 

There is a mighty swing to bring many mainline Protestant churches back into the Roman Catholic fold. The Lutherans are particularly vulnerable. Martin Luther would spin in his grave to see his brave stand against that evil being so undermined.

I don't know what particular danger you are in but I urge you to shake off all complacency, all those feel good moments in church, all spiritual laziness and take a full assessment of your spiritual standing with Jesus Christ. Ask Him to show you where you really stand.

Take a hard look at your spiritual growth over the past few years. Are you standing still or going backwards? Are you feeling the urgency of the Holy Spirit to be totally sure your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Revelations says that only those whose name is written in the Book will make it to Heaven. So its a priority that you and those you love are in it.

Are you doing anything to share your faith with friends and strangers so they can have a real vibrant relationship with Jesus? This does not include good deeds and charitable work; gift giving and humanitarianism. This means talking about Jesus to those who may never have another chance to hear.

If ISIS, Ebola, Boko Haram, HIV/AIDS, Volcanic eruptions, many Earthquakes, tsunamis and other curtain raisers to the great tribulation are not bothering you, perhaps the fragilty of world finances are. Or climate change. Or the nuclear capability of rogue nations who hate the West with a passion.

Jesus said it clearly in Matthew 24 in answer to his disciple's questions of when will the end come? When you see earthquakes, plagues, wars, hatred, climate change, men's hearts failing for fear then know its at the doors, replied Jesus.

He knows. He is the Creator, the Alpha and Omega, He knows all things. He does not lie or condemn. He came to save us, rescue us, from the evil to come. He has made a way out for His people. It is called The Rapture. It will come in the middle of the 7 year peace treaty Israel will make with the Arabs.

Follow everything Jesus laid down in the Bible for us. Read "Build Your Walls" on this blog link : and this will ensure that your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

One of the things Jesus said first in Matthew 24 was - Do not be deceived for many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Prayer: Father God, I pray for the readers today to have a knowing in their heart of their true spiritual standing. I reach out to each one to make sure you are on the narrow path that leads to Heaven and not the broad way that leads to destruction. The choice is yours. You have free will. Choose the path of life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
