Pastor of America’s largest church Joel Osteen has no understanding of the Holy bible

Mega-church pastor Joel Osteen may lead the largest Protestant church in the United States, but a recent Facebook post shows he might need to go back to Sunday school.

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:31 (KJV)

A Monday post to his verified Facebook page last year, Joel Osteen ministries, read: “God said in Numbers 11:23, ‘Moses, is there any limit to My power?’ He was saying, ‘Moses, you saw Me part the Red Sea, stop the sun for Joshua, keep three Hebrew teenagers safe in a fiery furnace, don’t you realize that I can bring water without rain?’ There’s no limit to God’s power.” As of Friday afternoon, the post had over 317,000 likes and 52,000 shares. It has since been deleted by the Osteen camp.

There’s just one problem: According to the Bible, Moses was dead before Joshua asked God to stop the setting of the sun, and long before the three Hebrew youths were thrown into the furnace. Yikes!

The Old Testament Book of Joshua explains that God appointed Joshua as Moses’s successor after Moses’s death (the first sentence literally begins, “Now after the death of Moses…”), who led the Israelites into battle against the Amorites, during which he commanded the sun and the moon not to move. “And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.” Joshua 10:13

The story of the the three Hebrew youths is told in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. According to the passage, the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, who reigned around the 6th century B.C. (long, long after the projected time of Moses), ordered his people to worship a large golden idol, “And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” (Daniel 3:6). The three Hebrew youths refused to worship the idol and were thrown into the furnace, but were not burned because Jesus showed up.

This passage is particularly important because it is understood to prefigure Christ — when the king asked whether the three were burned, one of his counselors replied “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” Daniel 3:25

I Cannot Wrap My Head Around The Senseless Beating Death Of Tyre Nichols By Memphis Police Other Than To Say It’s The Rising Spirit Of Antichrist

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Nearly three weeks after Tyre Nichols was violently arrested in Memphis, Tennessee, city officials released disturbing footage of his fatal confrontation with police. Bad cops, or the rising spirit of Antichrist?

Two events stand out from my formative during the time when I grew up in North Jersey in the 1970’s. The first being an event in 8th grade where we were shown raw footage filmed by the US Army the day the concentration camps in Nazi Germany were liberated, that broke my heart for the Jewish people. The second was when I started to read history books and saw for the first time how blacks had been treated in America with “colored drinking fountains”, “whites only” restrooms, and Rosa Parks refusing to ride in the back of the bus. I was very young at the time but it made a strong impression on me. Then flash forward to getting saved in 1991, and learning that the first Gentile who got saved in the Church Age was a black man, the Ethiopian eunuch. Throw Tyre Nichols into the mix, and there’s here’s a lot to process here, but bear with me.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” John 8:44,45 (KJB)

Tyre Nichols was black, pulled over by black cops who were surprisingly aggressive, and when it was all over, Tyre Nichols was dead. The videos of the events of that night were released on Friday, and it makes the cops look really bad. I was raised to have respect, and fear, of the police, but every barrel of apples has a few bad ones. I have not been pulled over all that many times in my life, but when I have been, I did everything they ask me to do with no resistance at all. They have the cuffs, the baton, the tazers and the guns, I want no part of any of that.

What could compel 5 blacks cops who pull over a black man, to treat him so harshly and cruelly? Tyre Nichols was not physically intimidating, and appeared to pose no threat of any kind to them. And yet, as you will see in the video below, they set on him like ravening wolves eating raw meat. Why? Back in 2020, we published an article reconciling the strange and unsettling events we were all of a part of with the released and rising spirit of Antichrist. In light of everything that has happened since, I feel that article has aged quite well. I feel that spirit all around, I see it in the eyes of strangers, it’s an oppression that is palpable. We who are saved know we are living in the closing moments of the Church Age, waiting for that blessed hope of our removal in the Rapture. But while we wait, this lost and dying world is preparing themselves to meet Antichrist, and you will continue to see many more senseless and stomach turning events like what happened to Tyre Nichols in the meantime. Pray for the Nichols family that God would comfort them, and pray that those 5 cops would get saved, that’s what a Bible believer would do.

Tyre Nichols: What the video footage reveals, and questions that remain

FROM ABC NEWS: The graphic footage of Memphis police officers beating the 29-year-old following a traffic stop was released Friday “because it was important to the community and to Tyre’s family, as they want the world to be their witness and feel their pain,” Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy said in a statement. The release of the videos sheds more light on what happened to Nichols on the night of Jan. 7, three days before he died. Though it also prompts more questions about the incident, which has sparked nationwide outrage.

Three videos from body worn cameras were shared to Vimeo by the city of Memphis on Friday with the warning: “Footage contains graphic content and language. Some may find offense. Viewer discretion is advised.” A fourth video — soundless surveillance footage from a city pole camera — was also released, amounting to about 67 minutes total.

The footage has helped answer questions about what happened that night, in particular for Nichols’ family. His mother, RowVaughn Wells, said that police initially told her that her son had been tased and pepper sprayed, though the extent of his injuries in the hospital indicated that something more violent had happened. For his stepfather, Rodney Wells, the video “justifies” that Nichols was no threat to the officers.

Tyre Nichols and His Killers

The five disgraced Memphis Police Department officers, who are also Black, have been fired and charged with second-degree murder and other crimes in Nichols’ death three days after the arrest. The video released Friday renewed questions about how fatal encounters with law enforcement continue even after repeated calls for change.

It’s unclear what led up to the traffic stop in the first place and why officers responded so aggressively. The first video is from the vantage point of an officer arriving at the scene as Nichols is being pulled out of his car while stopped at a red light.

In the fourth video, as officers recounted the traffic stop, one alleged that Nichols nearly drove into oncoming traffic, while another claimed that Nichols swerved and nearly hit his car while he was attempting to pull him over.

Police said he was pulled over for reckless driving, though Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn Davis said she has been unable to substantiate that.

“I do believe that the stop itself was very questionable,” Davis told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos during an interview Friday on “Good Morning America.” “We have been unable to verify the reckless driving allegation.”

Tennessee state Rep. G.A. Hardaway said questions have not been answered regarding the timeline and logistics of the case and called for clarity regarding the chain of command as it pertains to notification of car chases and violent encounters.

“There is more to the story, and I think that the citizens of Memphis and Shelby County deserve to know the whole story,” he said during a press event Saturday. READ MORE

The New Power Slap League Is Not Only The Stupidest Thing I’ve Seen Recently, It’s Also Pure Evil Promoting Violence For The Sake Of Violence

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Dana White’s controversial Power Slap league has drawn criticism from fight fans and non-fans, alike, and is now being condemned by a leading neuroscientist.

I grew up in a town called Pompton Lakes in New Jersey, and in the 1940’s and ’50’s, my little town was home to boxing champion Joe Louis and his training camp. My dad had fond high school memories working at the local sweet shoppe, a place called Bob and Ed’s, where Joe Louis would often visit after a hard day of training to get some ice cream, and treat the kids with coins and handshakes. Needless to say I grew up a boxing fan, but did not like it when things got too violent. In the early 2000’s we had the launch of the UFC which was mesmerizing and unsettling at the same time. Now in 2023 we have something called the Power Slap League which looks like it was hatched in the pit of Hell.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” 2 Timothy 3:1 (KJB)

Power Slap is not a sport by any stretch of the imagination, it is a pure endurance contest akin to standing in the middle of the road and allowing a speeding car to just hit you to see if you can take it. It is pure senseless violence for the sake of violence, has already produced fatalities and brain damage, and is horrifically frightening to watch. If the Devil had a flatscreen, this is a show he would have on endless loop. There is a fantastic sense of evil connected with Power Slap, and I believe, a potent harbinger of the end times in which we live. No Christian should have anything to do with this garbage, though sadly many likely will. If you can watch and enjoy a show like this, you need to check up on your salvation.

Dana White’s new slap-fighting league is slammed by expert, who rips the UFC president and TBS over a clip of a defenseless fighter suffering apparent head injury

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Chris Nowinski, a Harvard Ph.D. and former wrestler who has criticized the sports world’s handling of concussions, took issue with one recent clip in which one combatant, Chris Kennedy, appeared to show immediate signs of a significant head injury, known as a fencing posture.

‘This is so sad,’ tweeted Nowinski, the co-founder and president of the Concussion Legacy Foundation. ‘Note the fencing posture with the first brain injury. He may never be the same.’

A fencing posture or fencing response involves victims’ hands shooting into an unnatural position with their forearms flexed outward.

Nowinski, who also played college football for Harvard, took aim at White, the promoter, and TBS, which airs the brutal competition.

‘@danawhite & @TBSNetwork should be ashamed,’ Nowinski added. ‘Pure exploitation. What’s next, ”Who can survive a stabbing?”’

The sport was first popularized three years ago in Eastern Europe with a series of viral videos starring 370-pound Russian sensation Vasiliy Khamotiskiy. Known as ‘Dumpling,’ Khamotiskiy was seen in one video knocking a massive opponent unconscious to win 30,000 rubles, which was about $475 at the time. Other viral videos show Dumpling training by squashing watermelons and flipping tractor tires.

Dana White, who is facing backlash after video emerged of him slapping his wife at a New Year’s Eve party in Mexico, has defended PowerSlap, insisting that health and safety measures are taken seriously.

‘We spend the money to make sure we have two healthy people in there and proper medical attention during and after the fight,’ White said. ‘These are all the things we need to educate people on, just like we needed to educate people on mixed martial arts.’

As White told Just The Fights, he believes slap fighting is safer than boxing, where fighters can defend themselves, while being struck hundreds of times in a bout.

Slap fighting, on the other hand, typically involves only a few blows per match, although combatants are prohibited from defending themselves.

‘In Slap, they take three-to-five slaps per event. Fighters in boxing take 300-400 punches per fight. And guess what: you know what my answer to that is? If you don’t f***ing like it, don’t watch it. READ MORE

Newspaper Headlines Talking About Pregnant Men Has A Direct Connection To Bible Prophecy Concerning The Greatest Time Of Trouble In World History

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The phenomenon of a ‘pregnant man’ is something unique to our day, and a harbinger of soon to be fulfilled Bible prophecy

Whilst scanning the news headlines this morning, looking for something interesting to write about, I came across this article while said ‘Transgender men can get pregnant. Here’s what they wish more people understood’. We live in a day and age where the ludicrous and comic concept of a man getting pregnant is now part of the end times construct we find ourselves in. The prophet Jeremiah warns of a day that he calls the time of Jacob’s trouble, and even though that prophecy has very little to do with pregnant men, the timing of it is truly amazing.

“Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:6,7 (KJB)

The time of Jacob’s trouble is a 7-year time period, the first 3.5 years a time of the false peace and safety provided by Antichrist in the ‘strong delusion’, and the last 3.5 years the time of great Tribulation warned of by Jesus in Matthew 24. This time period will be ushered in on the heels of the removal of the Church in the Pretribulation Rapture. Jeremiah warns of this, and so does the apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:3. Jesus said the first sign of this period would be universal deception, and I can think of no better way to describe life in our day. We are lied to from every angle from every quarter, and if you don’t know your Bible you are a sitting duck with a target on your back.

The insanity of the LGBTQIA+ Movement continues to grow, as they gain more and more power and political influence in America and around the world. People are forced to recognize people’s ‘preferred pronouns’, and to acknowledge their ‘gender choices’ as if they were a real thing. We see biological women, who after having rounds horrifically mutilating surgeries and drugs, have now become men while retaining their reproductive organs. When these transgender men get pregnant, we are supposed to be filled with a sense of wonder and awe as if a ‘pregnant man’ was some sort of miracle. All of this is now backed up and defended by ‘science’, so you better believe it.

I know the time of Jacob’s trouble is a prophecy about the day when the LORD will finally judge His people, the Jews, and redeem them in the ‘furnace of affliction’, that’s what the Bible teaches. But how odd is it that Jeremiah, writing over 2,5000 years ago, uses the metaphor of a ‘pregnant man’ to describe the unbelievable nature of these events, something that has never existed in human history until our day? Like I said, the timing is amazing, and to me shows us how very close we are to the fulfillment of all the things the prophets have spoken.
