THE END OF A NATION…SODOMY
sodomy

“THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD.” Psalm 9:17.

  1. WHEN A NATION WILLFULLY AND KNOWINGLY REJECTS THE LIGHT GOD GIVES THEM-
  2. WHEN A NATION NO LONGER IS THANKFUL TO GOD-
  3. WHEN A NATION THINKS SIN AND PRIDE ARE THE SAME AS WISDOM-
  4. WHEN A NATION ESTEEMS ANIMALS MORE THAN HUMANS-
  5. WHEN A NATION APPROVES BESTIALLY-
  6. WHEN A NATION PRACTICES AND JUSTIFIES SODOMY-
  7. WHEN A NATION’S CITIZENS ARE… “FILLED WITH ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, FORNICATION, WICKEDNESS, COVETOUSNESS, MALICIOUSNESS; FULL OF ENVY, MURDER, DEBATE, DECEIT, MALIGNITY; WHISPERERS,  BACKBITERS, HATERS OF GOD, DESPITEFUL, PROUD,    BOASTERS, INVENTORS OF EVIL THINGS, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS,  WITHOUT  UNDERSTANDING, COVENANTBREAKERS, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, IMPLACABLE,    UNMERCIFUL:  WHO KNOWING THE JUDGMENT OF GOD, THAT THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH   THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, NOT ONLY DO THE SAME, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM.”

  (ARE WE THERE YET?)

“ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:19-32.

WHEN CHRIST DELIVERS THE KINGDOM TO THE FATHER



By Ken Blue
June 27th, 2018. Filed under: ARTICLES, Bible Study.

WHEN CHRIST DELIVERS THE KINGDOM TO THE FATHER

  1. CHRIST IS THE FIRST FRUITS TO BE RESURRECTED IN A GLORIFIED BODY-
  2. CHRIST’S FOLLOWERS TO BE RESURRECTED ACCORDING TO THEIR ORDER-
  3. CHRIST DELIVERS THE KINGDOM TO GOD AT THE END OF THE THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM-
  4. CHRIST WILL SUBDUE ALL POWERS DURING HIS THOUSAND YEAR REIGN-
  5. CHRIST WILL DESTROY THE LAST ENEMY, DEATH-
  6. CHRIST WILL BECOME SUBJECT TO GOD AT THE END OF HIS THOUSAND YEAR REIGN-
  7. GOD WILL RULE OVER ALL THINGS AS HE DID IN THE ORIGINAL CREATION-

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” 1 Corinthians 15:20-28.

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST, THE CURE FOR ALL SICKNESS’.



By Ken Blue
June 24th, 2018. Filed under: ARTICLES, Bible Studies, Sermons.

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST, THE CURE FOR ALL SICKNESS’.

By Ken Blue

RESURRECTION








  1. THOSE WHO PROFESS TO BE CHRISTIANS MUST BELIEVE IN CHRIST’S BODILY RESURRECTION-
  2. PAUL PREACHED CHRIST’S BODILY RESURRECTION-
  3. IF JESUS WAS NOT RESURRECTED BODILY, PREACHING, AND FAITH ARE VAIN-
  4. IF JESUS WAS NOT RESURRECTED, THEY WERE STILL UNDER THE CURSE OF SIN-
  5. IF JESUS WAS NOT RESURRECTED, THE DEAD IN CHRIST ARE PERISHED-
  6. IF WE HAVE HOPE IN THIS LIFE ONLY, WE ARE MOST MISERABLE AND HOPELESS-
  7. HOWEVER, CHRIST IS RISEN AND WE HAVE A SURE HOPE IN HIM-

“Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?  But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:  And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.  Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.  For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:  And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.  Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.” 1 Corinthians 15:12-19. “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”  (1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV.)

THE ABSOLUTE SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER



By Ken Blue
June 23rd, 2018. Filed under: ARTICLES, Bible Studies, Sermons.

THE ABSOLUTE SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER

By Ken Blue

  1. THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS US IN ALL OUR FRAILTIES-
  2. THE HOLY SPIRIT KNOWS GOD’S PURPOSE FOR OUR INFIRMITIES-
  3. THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES INTERCESSION TO THE FATHER FOR US-
  4. ALL THING WORK FOR GOOD FOR US-
  5. GOD HAS PREDESTINED US TO A GLORIFIED BODY LIKE CHRIST-
  6. THE BELIEVER IS JUSTIFIED AND GLORIFIED IN CHRIST-
  7. NO ONE CAN LAY ANYTHING OR CONDEMN US-
  8. JESUS CHRIST ALSO MAKES INTERCESSION FOR US-
  9. NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM GOD’S LOVE-
  10. WE HAVE ABSOLUT SECURITY IN CHRIST-

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:26-39.

“GIVE NONE OFFENCE, NEITHER TO THE JEWS, THE GENTILES, THE CHURCH OF GOD:” 



By Ken Blue
June 22nd, 2018. Filed under: ARTICLES, Bible Studies, Dispensation.

“GIVE NONE OFFENCE, NEITHER TO THE JEWS NOR TO THE GENTILES, NOR TO THE CHURCH OF GOD:”  (1 Corinthians 10:32).

By Ken Blue
CHURCH OF GOD

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURES RIGHTLY UNTIL WE UNDERSTAND HOW TO DIVIDE THEM RIGHTLY. FAILURE OF THIS RULE OF BIBLE INTERPRETATION HAS LED TO ALL KINDS CONFUSION AND MISAPPLICATION OF GOD’S WORD. THE FOLLOWING VERSE IS NOT UNDERSTOOD OR IT IS IGNORED TO THE SHAME OF MANY COMMENTATORS.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” 2 Timothy 2:15-16.

1 CORINTHIANS 10:32 REVEALS A DIVISION, NOT OF TIME, OR EVENTS, OR PLACES, BUT OF GROUPS OF PEOPLE. THESE CONSIST OF THE JEWS, THE GENTILES (NON JEWS OR THE CHURCH), OR THE CHURCH OF GOD. EACH OF THESE MUST BE DEALT WITH SEPARATELY AND IN THEIR PROPER CONTEXT. THIS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION. THE SECOND RULE IS TO TAKE ALL SCRIPTURE LITERAL AS FAR AS THE CONTEXT WILL ALLOW. IN OTHER WORDS, DO NOT MAKE THE FIGURATIVE LITERAL, OR THE LITERAL, A FIGURE OF SPEECH.

WHY GOD HAD ISRAEL DESTROY THE INHABITANTS OF CANAAN

WHY GOD HAD ISRAEL TO DESTROY THE INHABITANTS OF CANAAN, AND TAKE THE LAND.

Ken Blue

DO YOU QUESTION WHY GOD HAD ISRAEL TO DESTROY THE INHABITANTS OF CANAAN, AND TAKE THE LAND? READ AND WONDER NO MORE.

  1. THE LAND WAS FILLED WITH SODOMITES-
  2. THE LAND WAS FILLED WITH BESTIALITY-
  3. THE LAND WAS DEFILED AND MADE IT SICK-
  4. THE WAS FILLED WITH THE PERVERTED GIANTS-
  5. THE LAND WOULD VOMIT ISRAEL OUT IF THEY FOLLOWED THE SINS OF THE    OCCUPANTS-

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.  Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.  Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:  And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:  (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)  That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.  For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.  Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.” Leviticus 18:22-30.

HOW THE SCRIPTURES CAME TO MEN



By Ken Blue
June 19th, 2018. Filed under: Bible Studies, Sermons.

HOW MAN RECEIVED THE SCRIPTURE

By Ken Blue

  1. THE SCRIPTURES CONTRASTED AGAINST THE WRITINGS OF THE HEATHEN-
  2. THE VOICE OF GOD FROM THE HOLY MOUNTAIN-
  3. THE SCRIPTURES FROM HOLY MEN-
  4. THE SCRIPTURES CAME BY THE WILL OF GOD, FROM HEAVEN, NOT OF MEN-
  5. THE SCRIPTURES ALONE GIVE TRUE LIGHT-
  6. THE SCRIPTURES ARE NOT THE PRODUCT OF MEN-
  7. THE SCRIPTURES WERE OF MEN WHO WERE MOVED ALONG BY THE HOLY SPIRIT-
  8. THE SCRIPTURES ARE THE ONLY PROTECTION AGAINST DAMNABLE HERESIES-
  9. THE SCRIPTURES EXALT THE PERSON OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST-

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.  For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:16-21. “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.  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.” 2 Peter 2:1-2.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ONLY ONE-THIRD OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL WILL SURVIVE THE TRIBULATION?



By Ken Blue
June 18th, 2018. Filed under: ARTICLES, Bible Studies.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ONLY ONE-THIRD OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL WILL SURVIVE THE TRIBULATION?

The Tribulation

1. JUDGMENT WILL FALL ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST-

2.    JUDGMENT NEXT FALLS ON THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST-

3.    JUDGMENT WILL FALL ON THE NATION OF ISRAEL-

4.    JUDGMENT WILL DESTROY TWO-THIRDS OF ISRAEL

5.    JUDGMENT WILL REFINE AND PURIFY THE ONE-THIRD-

6.    JUDGMENT WILL BRING THE ONE-THIRD TO REPENTANCE-

7. JUDGMENT WILL BRING ABOUT A NEW BIRTH TO ISRAEL-

8     JUDGMENT WILL REFINE AND PURIFY THE ONE-THIRD-

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.  And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.” Zechariah 13:7-9.

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 12:10 .

Two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. Two parts of Israel will be destroyed in the future great tribulation, leaving only one part to be preserved alive to fight against Antichrist and make up the nation that will be born again in a day at the second coming of Christ (Zech. 13:8-9; 14:14; Rom. 11:25-29).

NO ZOMBIES!

NO ZOMBIES!

By Ken Blue

There is no proof that there will be a 40 day waiting period between the resurrection of the saints and the rapture. The charge for you to disprove the argument is like challenging you to PROVE that Peter did not kill his mother-in-law. You may not believe it, but there is no way you can PROVE he did not. That is the spider-web the zombie doctrine is built on.

              Also, there are too many “ifs” and “maybes” in the argument. In addition, the use of Lot and Noah has no place or reference to the church of this dispensation. Those verses speak of the days of Israel. In that day, their coming Tribulation. In the day of the second coming, not the rapture (Lk. 17:34-37; Mt. 24:27-31; 25:31-46; Rev. 19:11-21).

              The argument that zombies will spend 40 days witnessing may be appealing…The fact that the dead in Christ rise first, is not proof that there will be 40 days before the rapture. The only answer to that challenge, by the creator of this false doctrine, is, “I will be as critical of your answer as you are of mine.” What kind of proof it that?

              Lastly, the argument that these zombies will spend those 40 days witnessing to the lost may be appealing, but that is not what the Apostles spent their time doing. See, “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” Acts 1:6. One may conveniently overlook the fact that they were required to WAIT 40 days for the witnessing power of the Holy Spirit.

              Thus, belief in a zombie doctrine is a stretch of an imagination gone wild and an attempt to be novel and sensational. It may be novel, but it is not sensational. Neither is it validated by any Scripture, Nor should one give this novelty a serious thought.
