The Heretical Blasphemy Of Joel Osteen In His New Book Entitled ‘The Power Of I Am’ Is On Full Laodicean Display

Joel Osteen excitedly begins to urge his followers to repeat after him – “Alright just repeat after me. I am strong. I am healthy. I am confident. I am confident. I am secure. I am talented. I am creative. I am disciplined. I am focused. I am valuable. I am beautiful. I am blessed. I am excited about my future. I am victorious. Alright how about amen?”

Joel Osteen The Power Of I Am Book
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Joel Osteen’s “preaching” is heresy combined with blasphemy, written in the study of Satan himself.

In the Bible, the term I AM is the Name that God tells Moses in Exodus 3:14 he can refer to Him as when he goes back to Egypt to have a showdown with Pharaoh. God tells his this as the bush burns but is not consumed. It is a somber, awesome and fearsome time. So holy is it that God demands that Moses even remove his shoes, for even the ground where this is happening is holiness unto the Lord.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” 2 Peter 2:1 (KJV)

But according to false teacher Joel Osteen, you can use God’s sacred Name as a buzzword to get cool stuff.  This is the poisonous heresy of the Word Faith Movement combined with the blasphemy of using God’s Name in vain.

“A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon

Joel Osteen excitedly begins to urge his followers to repeat after him – “Alright just repeat after me. I am strong. I am healthy. I am confident. I am confident. I am secure. I am talented. I am creative. I am disciplined. I am focused. I am valuable. I am beautiful. I am blessed. I am excited about my future. I am victorious. Alright how about amen?”

This is what passes for preaching in 2015, Laodicean slop where YOU are the focus and God is nothing more than an errand boy who is expected to provide “stuff” on demand. “When you talk like this”, Osteen declares, “these things will follow you and God will provide them.” Outrageous! How is it possible that Lakewood Church in Houston has not yet been hit with lightning? Nothing he “preaches” about has any relation to the Bible in any way, shape or form. There is nothing in the Bible that backs up any of the claims Osteen makes the way he makes them. Everything he says has been lifted out of context, twisted, and repacked until any original meaning has long since disappeared.

Pastor Joel Osteen’s Full Sermon “The Power of ‘I Am'”

WARNING: I only include this video of Osteen’s “The Power Of I Am” sermon so you know that what I tell you about his “preaching” is truthful and accurate. I do not recommend that you attempt to listen to it all the way through.

The greatest Christian in the Bible, the apostle Paul, asked God 3 times for the “thorn in his flesh” to be removed. God say “no, my grace is sufficient for you.” Paul suffered the rest of his life with that “thorn” and then said that his suffering brought him closer to the Lord. This is Bible doctrine, folks, this is what the Bible actually teaches. Read it and see how it matches up with Osteen’s spewings:

“For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-11 (KJV)

According to Joel Osteen’s reasoning, the apostle Paul was a faithless failure who only “dwelt on the negative” and didn’t receive God’s blessing because he didn’t “speak it and claim it”. Paul says “You want God’s power? Then glory in your weakness! Take PLEASURE in persecutions, in sickness, in distress.” That’s where God’s true power, riches and blessings are. Bible doctrine is the stark, polar opposite of Osteen’s theology.

Osteen’s sermon, “The Power Of I Am” at it’s best is Laodicean slop designed to appeal to self-centered, narcissistic “christians” looking to get more “stuff” from God. But at it’s worst, it’s heresy combined with blasphemy, written in the study of Satan himself. The Devil is the “I Will” guy, but the flip-side of that coin is stealing God’s Name and becoming the “I Am” guy. I cannot imagine how anyone can sit and listen to this trash on a Sunday morning and call it a “worship” service. It is nothing of the kind unless you are referring to self-worship, which actually seems to be the goal of Osteen’s urgings.

Enjoy all the money and the fame while you can, Joel, what’s coming next for you won’t be any fun at all.

The Biggest Buzz In The Tech World Right Now Is Something Called ChatGPT And It Will Bring Our Global Society A Giant Step Closer To The End

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Microsoft confirmed on Monday that it’s making a ‘multiyear, multibillion-dollar’ investment in OpenAI and ChatGPT, reportedly a $10 billion deal.

We’ve all done it, had an appliance that was malfunctioning, a trick we were trying to figure out in Photoshop, a supplement we needed to know the benefits and interactions of, or just had any type of question about anything, and found the answer online in very short order. Such is the power of the internet, and it has changed all our lives in ways great and small. Now the internet has a new superpower, ChatGPT, created by a company called OpenAI, and it’s not here to help us, it has arrived to take over. The prophet Daniel saw this coming over 2,500 years ago, don’t you love it when the world catches up to your King James Bible?

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJB)

ChatGPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer, and it utilizes AI, or artificial intelligence, to answers questions, write books and articles, and to deeply search the internet to compile information for you in mere moments that would take the human brain many hours or days to accomplish. ChatGPT launched as a prototype to the public Nov. 30, 2022. Within five days, more than a million people were using it. By comparison, it took Netflix 3½ years to get that many people on board. Facebook didn’t crack its first million people for 10 months, and Spotify went five months before it reached that million user mark. Microsoft confirmed on Monday that it’s making a “multiyear, multibillion-dollar” investment in OpenAI, and while they didn’t disclose the specific dollar amount – it’s reportedly a $10 billion deal.

For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6 (KJB)

How big is all this? Bigger than you could ever imagine, and now that we live in a world that is highly if not completely dependent on the internet to function, OpenAI and ChatGPT is going to ensure that artificial intelligence begins the process of taking over. As a Bible believer, I see the rising spirit of Antichrist behind all of this, leading ever-forward to the Mark of the Beast. This is the 21st century equivalent of the Tower of Babel, man attempting to ‘outsmart God’ to create a paradise on earth. God wrote the Bible to give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding, artificial intelligence is Satan’s counterfeit of that. Already, companies and businesses all over the world are using ChatGPT to create the content you read on some of your favorite sites, and guess what? You didn’t even know a human didn’t write it.

Going forward, we are preparing a series of Podcasts showing you just how deep this rabbit hole goes. OpenAI, ChatGPT and all its many sisters are right up our alley, and we will bring you everything you need to know on the subject. As I have always said, when it comes to current events and the end times, NTEB readers and listeners are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth because we have the King James Bible to give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the times we live in, and that’s a blessing…TO THE FIGHT!!!

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

Published

on

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.

Top left to right: Officer Tadarrius Bean, Tyre Nichols, and Officer Emmitt Martin III; bottom left to right: Officers Justin Smith, Demetrius Haley, and Desmond Mills, Jr.

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

on

power-slap-league-demonic-new-sport-dana-white
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
