Signs of the Times??

"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
"But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
"Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
"At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
"Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
"Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.
"But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.

How many of these things do we see today?? Especially by "Christians"?

How many of us Christians have been betrayed by other so called "christians"?

By those who while say that they believe in Jesus and are one of His, but have not any fruit?

Or who's entire ministry is full of hate and was made in order to get back at other ministries? and who uses the names of leaders in other ministries so that they are able to bring more to their forum of hate??

Who without any repentance lie and try to destroy those who are doing their best to spread the "Good News" and the "Salvation Message" to a world who is hurting??

Who's own percieved and unreal hurts are standing in the way of people coming to Christ?

Who puts their own personal vendeta or agenda ahead of and before the call of Christ and the work that is being done for Christ?

We must be careful to avoid these type of "ministries". They will cause us to fall away as their leaders have already done. If they will betray, lie about, or try and destroy those who were closest to them and those they claim to love and those who have been there for them, who shared their secrets with, what will keep him from betraying you as well??

How to point them out? Easy!! Just take a look at their sites. Both the forum and the blogs held by him. You will see the hate spewed out in no time at all!!

Pr 15:28
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer , But the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things .

Mt 12:34
"You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good ? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.

Mt 15:18
"But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.

Lu 6:45
"The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.

The bible calls those who are filled with hate for other Christians "evil". Their heart is evil and they are not able to speak that which is good.

He has had chance after chance to repent of his evils and lies and discord, but he has chosen pride, hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, and evil over that which is of God.

The bible states that we MUST avoid these people.

2 Timothy 3
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant , revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.
For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses,
always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.
But they will not make further * progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes's and Jambres's folly was also.

Pr 10:12
Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all transgressions.

Pr 10:18
He who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool.

Pr 15:17
Better is a dish of vegetables where love is Than a fattened ox served with hatred.

Pr 26:26
Though his hatred covers itself with guile, His wickedness will be revealed before the assembly.

2 Corinthians
All this time you have been thinking that we are defending ourselves to you. Actually, it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and all for your upbuilding, beloved.
For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps there will be strife, jealousy , angry tempers, disputes, slanders, gossip, arrogance, disturbances;
I am afraid that when I come again my God may humiliate me before you, and I may mourn over many of those who have sinned in the past and not repented of the impurity, immorality and sensuality which they have practiced.

1 Timothy 6:
If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,
he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions,
and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.

BEWARE!! of so called "ministries" and "leaders" who are showing these fruits!!
