Targeted Christians
By Nicholas
August 24, 2008



Are Christian’s targets today? The News media loves to report on Christians dying for their faith so as to generate fear in the hearts of those that are just now starting to learn of this faith we embrace. They also love to ridicule Christ and His followers as we have seen in their offhanded comments on the News. This method works well as we all know from the days of childhood when the term “goody two shoes” in the schoolyard forced us to leave our morals behind so as to be accepted by the “cool kids” in school.

Hollywood makes millions of movies jam packed with sin so as to make the Christian lifestyle so unpopular and unappealing, that it’s becoming very difficult for some to see Christ has more to offer then they can ever imagine. TV sitcoms repeatedly blaspheme our God and do so for the sake of laughter. They beep out most curse words, but they always allow the name of our Lord to be used in vain as if it’s an accepted form of cursing. Even Sports announcers speak out quite boldly and very hateful as I recall whenever a Christian puts up a poster with “John 3:16” on it at televised sporting events. The Olympics in China actually banned all praying and any form of Christian influence in the games. They even went so far as to stop all door to door evangelists, home churches, and simple Christian gatherings to continue during the games. Musicians in Rock bands growl extremely hateful statements towards the Creator that actually keeps their hearts beating in every song they convince our children to listen to. Video games have become literal training grounds for any deranged child that wants to practice killing and raping. Games like grand theft auto, not only gives them high scores for killing and raping, they do so now with very lifelike graphics so as to burn it deeper into the subconscious of our children how fun it can be to kill their fellow man. Every day on TV one can flip to more then one channel wherein men are beating each other senseless in bare-knuckle cage matches. Some of these guys are maimed for life and some even die, and it’s all done for entertainment. Why? Satan is literally training up an army of killers so that when the prophecied death decree regarding the mark of the Roman Vatican beast goes forth they will have no problem killing their next door neighbor. Most children are raised by TV today wherein by the time they reach the age of 13 they would have witnessed 8000 murders! Can you imagine such a thing? Killing your fellow man is considered an entertaining aspect of Hollywood now? Have you seen the commercials advertising the newest movie called Death Race wherein you get points for killing during a car race?

Does this not affect the minds of our children? I know it made some of my old friends into killers. They went from innocent children to cold blooded killers and their only method of education in that realm was the TV. Truth is, no one goes around bad neighborhoods and watches 8000 murders in 13 years to learn to kill. And this is not even taking into consideration the violent video games. So, yes, they are training the people to become killers. And it will be an easy task for them to get them to kill when they mix religion with the act. When Antichrist arrives, we know he will use the Vatican. Especially when he speaks as Jesus Christ Himself and tells them it’s a blessed and required act to kill the Sabbath keeping Christians so as to appease His Father’s anger against mankind for breaking the Sunday Sabbath of Rome.

Some may say that all the killing on TV and video games doesn’t affect people. Yet not long after TV started pushing it, it became so less taboo that today men and women think nothing of killing their babies for decades in what America and other countries call legalized abortion. And yes, I place men in the mix as well because some will force their girlfriends or wives to kill their babies. Is this anything new? No, it’s been going on for thousands of years. Still, the Christians are strong and still our God loves us as is apparent by His blessings upon us.

  • 2 Corinthians 2:14 , “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”

The miracles, prayers answered, peace in times of trial, all these blessings from the true God of creation prove Satan a liar. It’s gotten to where He cannot have this graphic evidence against him being broadcast about freely. When a Christian prays to the true God, and souls are converted to Christ, loved ones are healed, tornadoes are averted, threats of all kinds disappear, and yes, even chem-trails waft downwind, it makes people stand up and take notice. In fact, it was this that made me start researching the power of God over 25 years ago.

Like a soldier on a battlefield watching his General lead his forces against the enemy, his courage is heightened and his spirit is lifted when he sees the methods of his General proven successful against the fleeing enemy because he realizes he will survive. He sees the benefits of being on the winning side first hand. Yes, some of those he loves died around him, but still the battle is won and the enemy defeated. In the same way, the seeker of Truth sees the God of all creation making His awesome power and love known. In so doing, Satan’s lies become transparent and fleeting as a snowball in hellfire. We are at war yes, but Exodus 15:3 plainly says, "The LORD is a man of war…” and He will fight this battle for us because Moses went on to proclaim in Exodus 15:6 that, "Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy."

We have no doubt who the enemy really is today. He has made his fruits known for 6000 years! We also know how he employs to do his dirty work because our King relays this information to us. This scares him greatly because his agenda is an open book. The element of surprise is greatly diminished. That is why he seeks to close that book and stop people from reading bibles.

  • Amos 8:11, "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:"

If you think about it, this is why so many people attend church on Sundays. Their very own Bibles says they are in sin by doing so. But they don’t read their bibles as predicted to find that out. Even their denominational forefathers admit their bible says the Sabbath is Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown, but since they never study the bible, they have no recourse but to believe what their pastor says. This turns them into what I like to refer to as “pastor echoes.” Many of you know exactly what I mean by that. When we share our faith and the Law of God with people they all have the exact same responses as their reasons for breaking God’s Law. None of them are original in their approach. They have made our job painfully easy. We would be greatly lacking in our duties as Christians if we don’t show them the same verses their pastors took out of context. Once they see it with their own eyes, my experience has been they believe it. The hard part is getting them to listen.

This is where prophecy comes in as a great tool to open doors.  Reason being is, we live in a day wherein we can open the Creator’s bible, peer inside and see warnings He penned thousands of years ago that are being fulfilled all around us which can be verified by simply opening a few history books or reading the daily News. This is why most false pastors and preachers refuse to preach prophecy from their pulpits because it exposes so much about their false message that they would be unable to stand trusted after even one sermon. If they were to use all the Bible verses, and not just a few out of context passages that speak on the topics they twist, all the lies about a secret Rapture, a 7 year trib, the Antichrist, the mark of the beast, or even the so called 1000 years of peace on earth would all be career ending sermons for any false preacher today. In fact, this is what I hear in emails after some that seek Truth read a page or two on this site. Most are unaware of how much the Bible really says about such things. Even the SDA people declare they never heard such things before, and rightly so. All the pastors have stopped! Since they never open their bibles, their pastors can preach anything they want to keep them in that pew. Praise the Lord for those that seek a firm thus saith the Lord before trusting any man on earth.

It’s these trusting souls that upset the dragon the most. So much so that he has waged war against the Remnant of God. If you look around you will see sign after sign that all that is of God on earth has become unpopular, ridiculed, and actually illegal. If you look closely you will see a war being waged against us so as to prevent us from having the ability to share our faith. A faith that both glorifies God, and causes the devil to flee simultaneously. Only a message from a God could do such amazing feats. This faith in our God’s love and protection is in fact our weapon against the enemy of souls. He has waged war, and we have a mighty God as our Leader who has many times before, and will again cause them that comes against the people of God to fall down dead.

  • 1 Chronicles 5:22, "For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God…”

The enemy of souls is going to tempt God’s people in every way he can so as to get them off track. He will even use people closest to us as he does with spies in government so as to break our ranks as we have seen time and time again these last few years. Some may see this as a bad thing, but I see it as a shaking. The Lord is shaking out the wicked that won’t do the work needed to be done.

As many of you know, fear is a major factor in his agenda. Everything from physical threats upon the flesh, to financial threats is in his universal bag of tricks. We must also consider the other toss of the coin. (no pun intended) Sometimes Satan offers great riches to get preachers to bow to his agenda. Case in point, look at how almost 100% of all the pastors today were lured into creating the basic foundation for the image of the beast by accepting the government’s 501C3 trap. According to the Constitution, the pastors salaries are already guaranteed tax free by the law of the land. But a few extra dollars saved in sales tax proved far too large a temptation for those that stand at the pulpit as a career choice rather then a calling. These preachers of “filthy lucre” as Peter, Timothy and Titus called them, worship their money over their God. Money is the reason why all the TV preachers have stopped preaching what the Lord would have them preach. It has become illegal now for these preachers to preach certain sermons since March 7, 2006 when Bush declared them to be “Government Agents” from that day forward. Doing so will cause them to loose all their money. So.. they preach what Rome allows instead. Most of the preachers that I have talked to about their 501C3 know they are "limited" on their pulpits today. But they state it's no big deal. Just the other day, one responded with four letter words when I tried to warn him bout the danger he's in. Some are very defensive of their money it seems.

I recall when I first started out on the Internet, I too was approached by agents of Satan bearing great riches. The website was barely a few hundred pages at the time, and I didn’t even have a domain name yet. I was running off a free ISP housed in a small town library close to my location. One day a little over 9 years ago, I was offered $6,000.000.00 (6 million!) to shut the website down so as to help orphans in Russia. Of course I turned it down, but it surprised me how fearful the devil and his cohorts are when it comes to truth we not only preach, but walk in. I had no idea it would be that graphic.

Looking back, and thinking about all the events we see happening around the world, it makes it real easy to see that yes, Satan is scared and it is because of the Remnant people that follow after Christ and Christ alone. Our message hits home for many souls seeking Truth. Especially when we share with them what bible prophecy says will happen. And even more-so when we share with them future events that are to occur according to bible prophecy. When the prophecied event comes to fruition, and the one we shared with knows we keep God’s Law as Christians, the seeker now has confirmed factual evidence that we are God’s people. For it is written in…

  • Revelation 14:12, "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."

Only the obedient child of God can understand that which is written by God the Father and that is why Satan seeks to make war with us. This is prophecied as fact in the following passage…

  • Revelation 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

As most students of prophecy know, a “woman” equals a “church” in prophecy. (See Jeremiah 6:2) In Revelation 12:17 we see that the original SDA church (woman) is no longer the focus of attack by the dragon. It’s her “remnant” that is now under attack. (For an in dept look at this fulfilled prophetic event. Click here)  Why is the remnant of God under attack you ask? The verse says it’s because we keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Why is that a problem for Satan?

It’s a twofold threat actually.

First of all, when Christians keep the Law it proves Satan lied about it being abolished on Calvary. (See all the verses that prove this here) Why is this Law of God such a threat to Satan?

  • James 1:23-25, "For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."

The Gospel Truth is, when a person looks at the “mirror” of God which is, according to James the Law of God, they see they have sinned.

If you were roll around in a mud puddle, and then stand in front of a mirror, what would you see? Your image covered in mud. When you go through life rolling around in sin, and then look into God’s mirror; His Ten Commandments, what do you see? Your image covered in sin.

Everyone of us has broken at least one commandment. Have you ever lied? Then you broke #9. Have you ever stolen something? Then you broke #8. Have you ever broken the seventh day Sabbath? Then you have broken #4. I don’t think I need to go through all ten. But I think you get the idea.

The Word of God say that "…sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) If we sin, the Word says in Romans 6:23 that, "…the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Think about that for a moment. Satan knows that if the people truly find out they are sinners, and they also find out they must die for those sins they committed, he knows they will naturally seek out help to prevent their eternal deaths. He must do all he can to prevent that from happening because he knows the only way of getting out of that death is by Jesus Christ.

  • Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
  • Isaiah 1:18, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
  • 1 Corinthians 15:3, "…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;"

The sinners now have a real and eternal way out of the death sentence! So the obvious plan was devised to make them think the Law of God was no longer necessary, and in so doing they are never taught to look at or even study the Law of God. Their pastors preach smooth things and prosperity messages and they are taught to believe each Sunday that all is well. With no threat of death looming over them, they naturally won’t seek the only way out of the death they are destined for. Complacency is the reason for their eternal deaths.

  • Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

Putting it simple, the Devil hates the Law of God because,"…by the Law is the knowledge of sin." (Romans 3:20) So he has to attack it and make it trivial in the eyes of the people! If the devil can keep you from looking in the "Biblical mirror" or using the "measuring rod" which is in fact the Law of God, he has won. Satan knows mankind is judged by how he keeps the Law.

  • James 2:12, "So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty."

The devil wants to prevent the world from looking to the Ten Commandments because he knows that if the Christian people peer into the Law they will realize they are in sin. In so doing, they will also come to realize they are in desperate need of a Saviour. As Revelation 12:17 said, the threat that angers the devil the most are the remnant that will “keep the commandments of God.”  With that said, what does every true Christian do after they find Christ as Lord? They immediately share their faith. Most that are serious about their walk do so for the rest of their lives. The question always comes up as to why I keep Sabbath when I’m on the street, the phone, the radio or the Internet. This gives me a way to show how God’s Law is eternal and still a requirement of God’s Christian people.

But it gets better still! The Lord really granted us a powerful weapon in this war against His Truth. That passage in Revelation 12 also said we “have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” This is the other reason Satan is waging war so intensely. Our God has given us both barrels to blast away at the lies of Hell. For those that are unsure as to what the testimony of Jesus Christ is. I’ll let the angel that told John, tell you what it is…

  • Revelation 19:10, "… the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

The remnant of God not only keeps the Law of God and shares with others the need to do so as well. We have the understanding of the prophetic Scriptures to boot! We not only share with those the Lord sends our way an easy way to discover their need to seek Jesus as Saviour, and that being by peering into His mirror. But with this understanding of prophecy as He has blessed us with, we can now educate the masses as to the real identity of the man of sin and his plans.

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

Revelation 12:17 describes two major fruits that anger the enemy of souls to no end. That man of sin in Rome who literally calls himself “God on earth” in dozens of well documented quotes, is now exposed before more souls at one time then ever before in the history of mankind, and both he and his god Satan know it. This is why the media is controlled, and this is also why we see the following events happening against God’s people all around the world.

By the way.. I am only sharing the headlines to give you an idea of how bad this war has become. If you want to read the articles just click the headline when you get time. With his man in Rome being unveiled so openly now, Satan knows quite bluntly that “…he hath but a short time." –Revelation 12:12

Of course I didn’t share all the articles I have on this. At present I have 371 of them stored, and could double that number in a few hours of online research I’m sure. I just happened to have as many as I do by sheer chance. Some are sent to me, and some I happen across in my research. Plus I didn’t share any of the martyrdom articles, of which there are literally thousands. In fact, the words “Christian Persecution” brings up 215,000 websites as of August 21, 2008 on most search engines.

Bottom line: Have you noticed how biased all of this is? At present, 450 Christians are killed every day around the world for their faith. That’s one brother or sister in Christ killed every 3 minutes , and their only crime is because they believe in Jesus Christ as Lord. It’s about to get a lot worse.

When was the last time you heard of a Muslim or a Buddhist being killed, raped, burned, beaten, fired, jailed, ridiculed, evicted, arrested, stalked, hunted, or simply persecuted for their faith? To be honest, I’m just over 50 years of age, and I have yet to hear of one instance. It has become obvious the Christian church is under attack. This proves Satan has convinced the majority of the people on earth to have a blatant fear of Jesus Christ. So much so they will do anything they can to get His followers out of their regions. Christian-Phobia for lack of a better term, has become the norm for literally billions today. And the amazing thing is, we never kill anyone, let alone persecute! The true Christian is the only peaceful one on Earth. But the Truth is, they don't so much hate us as much as they hate the Lord we worship.

With all this hate and persecution against Christians has anyone ever stepped up in any national hall of Congress around the world to protect Christians? No.. not that I know of. But then again, do Christians really need help of this sort from man? No, not really. We have a mighty and eternal King who has given us His Word and absolute assurance that even if called to die for the faith, we will live again to see those that come against us judged for their hateful acts against our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. What they do unto us they will answer for doing onto Him. And "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." (Hebrews 10:31) For it is plainly written..

  • Matthew 25:40-41, "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"

But unto us, His faithful and loyal eternal subjects, our King shall say…

  • Matthew 25:21, “…Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
