13Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Verse(s) of the day: 2 John 1:7-11: “7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Hello, how are you doing? hopefully, you are doing well, keep holding onto your belief in Christ and do not focus too much on the things of this world that serve as an obstacle between you and Christ. Let’s keep marching on in Christ Jesus. Where can I start this blog from? I don’t know but I know we will eventually get there. This blog is about false Christians, who claim to love Christ and they tend to be caught doing everything opposite what Christians should be doing. I am probably talking about myself as well. I won’t stay here and act like I am all clean, I do need to be prayed for as well, as much as I want to be as close to God as I want to be, I do find it difficult sometimes. Sometimes I do feel left out by people around me, no one really wants anything to do with the Christian guy. Well, the Bible did let us know about all these things, it’s like I do forget sometimes for some reason. Keep praying for me. God is forever good as well, I just want to be as close to God as he wants me to be.
Enough about me now, back to the purpose of the blog. I know that I keep saying that I have seen a lot, but I have seen a lot. These people claim to be Christians but have nothing to prove it or nothing to offer, they just say they are Christians, for the sake of professing it. Weird enough, some people nowadays think it’s cool to be a Christian, they get some form of credibility from their friends from that. They turn up to Church with the best clothes, they engage more with church-related activities, they honour people around them in church, constantly working to be noticed and praised by people around them. They are sometimes the ones with the best talents. You probably didn’t catch this, all these things are for sure identified by people, but is it by God? You will probably argue yes. How can it be when God wasn’t at the start of their false salvation. From the beginning, these people never recognise God as the author of their salvation. I say “GOD”, not your generic god, the one your favourite Hollywood role model, who dresses like a harlot calls upon. They will rather base the author of their salvation on their experience, music, emotions, and feelings. You see them talking weird talks like, “I just know about what I experienced”. Am sorry, but the Christian salvation experience can only be one, which is an experience based on the fact that Jesus Christ has taken over our lives as our Lord and Personal Saviour, and not only that but we also begin to experience Good Christ-based changes in our lives.
Although these people claim to have had some type of experience, a truly born-again Christian will know that these experiences are not from God. Why? because these false converts begin to break their characters as time goes on, and when this happens, you will begin to find them doing exactly what they claim to have been freed from by Jesus Christ, without no conviction in regard to their actions. They believe they are saved enough to continue engaging in their perpetual sins. SAD!!!!!!
Romans 2:22-24: 22Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 23Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? 24For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
As sad as these things are, there are a lot of people, not Christians out there who are exactly what I have stated in this blog. The Holy Spirit convicts Christians, who recognise what they are doing wrong, sadden within themselves and repent to get back to God. I will admit this as well, I do need prayers as well. Continue to pray for me and continue to pray for such people to truly find God.
Thanks for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
2Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. 3For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. 4Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 16Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Verse(s) of the day: Philippians 3:7-11 “7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”
How are you doing? I pray you are doing well in Christ. Remind yourself always that you are on the winning side, which is the side of Christ. To set the record straight, there is nothing like a doubtful believer, you are either a doubter or a believer, and you can’t have it both ways. No sitting on the fence here. How can you believe and doubt at the same time? doubt on its own means that you don’t really believe or let me put it this way that you accept something, although there is no form of belief at all. As plain as this is, some actually hold this title of so-called “doubtful believers”, and embrace it more than you can actually imagine. They may claim to still be searching for the truth, while still embracing the title of Christians. You see, it doesn’t work that way.
How can you be in truth and still be looking for the truth? once again, it doesn’t work that way. Christ is the truth and Christians are followers of the truth. If you are trying to find any more truth other than that in Christ, you are going into the occult world, or into the eastern religions world. These groups of organisations basically believe that you can assess some high standard of knowledge from some other dimension out there. I know it’s weird, and don’t ask me why I know all this, you should probably watch THIRD ADAM 1,2,3, and 3X on youtube. I highly recommend this, you will definitely find some things that are thought challenging for you.
For real, not that I am making all these things up to create room for making blog content, but as confusing as this situation can be, many people believe in being doubtful believers.
See, let me get your attention for some moment, I say some moment, but you actually have been reading this blog up to this moment. You can’t claim to be a believer and still have the slightest bit of doubt, it doesn’t work that way, you are either a believer or a doubter, there is nothing like a doubtful Christian.
James 1:66But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Hebrews 11:6: 6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Hope you are all doing well in Christ. Let me just go straight to the point. You can’t win against God, but you can win with God. With how things are going on in life, we can feel stranded as Christians. The weak ones among us have fallen back into what Jesus had saved us from, well the Bible said that they were not part of us. 1 JOHN 2:18-19 “18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us”
Yes, the thing I see the most is that when these people leave the faith, they decide to talk God down, and they begin to wage war against God, well we all know God wins no matter what. These people know all these, but they continue to wage lost war with the way they act and everything else. They begin to feel like some sort of authority over themselves, forgetting that God can end them in no time. Well, we shouldn’t be surprised at all, it is in our hearts as human beings, we hate authorities, talk less of God’s authority, we dislike anything to do with God from the beginning of our days. We always don’t want anything to do with God. The world supports our hearts as well, everything is against God and most people love it. We can never win against God no matter how many we are. They say there is strength in numbers, well God is more than any number. Let me end it this way, repent from your horrible ways, receive God into your heart, and no, not the generic mother health gods. Receive the God of the Bible “Jesus Christ”.
1 Timothy 2:5-6 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and man Christ Jesus: Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time”.
We shouldn’t be surprised as Bible-believing Christians “not everyone who claims to be Christians nowadays is Christians” about all that is happening in the world. “Everything is against us”. But guess what? The Bible is always proven right.
Let’s put it this way, a lot of people in the world right now think the world is falling apart, but to Christians “everything is falling right in place”. Being a twenty-year-old that goes to a sole called Christian school filled with unbelievers. How can a Christian School have an LGTBQ committee? ‘it’s always the Catholics somehow” “well I love to see it this way, even the ones who claim to be Christians are more deadly than the unbelievers” feels like being alone out there, but God is more than alone.
The more I go through the Bible and discover how the Bible serves as a guide that displays how the puzzle “the world” will be laid out. For unbelievers, no one knows, but for we Christians, God knows all, and the Bible illustrates that. The more I find out these Bible verses about how the world will be or let’s say how the world is right now. I can only come down to, and I am 100% sure that other Bible Believing Christians will agree with me also that we are in the last days. “Last days” days to be excited about as Christians, we are waiting for our King “Jesus Christ” again.
Yes!!!! Not only that, we can all see everything right in our faces right now. To the unbelievers it’s always hidden, always claiming to be smart, but not enough though. Remember these Bible verses
1 Corinthians 1:25- 29
25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence.
In the last days, false prophets will arise, many false Christ will arise, many anti-christ will be around, people will depart from the faith, more and more and more. To sum the whole thing up, I can only direct you towards reading the Bible, and it’s by your devoting your time to reading and understanding it. ASK other Bible Beliving Christians about what you don’t understand.
These are some Bible Verses about the “Last days”
1 Timothy 4:1-3:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Matthew 24: 3-14
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
1 John 2: 18-19 18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
2 Peter 3:3-7 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

1Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. 2But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 4Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 5But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11For there is no respect of persons with God.12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 16In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.17Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, 18And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; 19And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 20An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. 21Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 23Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? 24For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.25For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
1Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; 5Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: 6Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. 7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thingwhereto I sent it.
12For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
12Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.
21Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
14A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.
1A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
9Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
18A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
