ITCHING EARS & REFUSAL OF TRUTH


ITCHING EARS & REFUSAL OF TRUTH

We will be having a Night Shadows Radio Program

Tonight 9-9-2020 @ 7:00 PM CThttp://tobtr.com/11808782

2 Timothy 4:2-4

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

It is always interesting and frustrating to me that when I post things concerning TRUE SALVATION that fewer and fewer people continue to read the posts and they are almost never re-posted anywhere else. So why is that? Why is the most important issue ever to face humanity not of interest, but news of THIS WORLD is?

Is it because of Jesus teaching us about the STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY? Is it because Jesus told us to PICK UP OUR OWN PERSONAL CROSS? Is it because Christians have been hardwired to the fake gospel that is warned about all over the Bible? Is it because the Lord has picked their easy salvation gospel delusion?

If I post something about current news of THIS WORLD, suddenly people come to visit. Can anyone give me an answer? Is there anyone out there that realizes with their HEART and MIND the horrific predicament they are really in? Or have they all embraced the FAKE SALVATION GOSPEL OF OUR MODERN CHURCH? Do you realize that this last days Church is a LOST HELLBOUND CHURCH? If not, WHY NOT?

SO WHY IS THAT?

The answer is stated clearly in the scripture above. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THE REAL TRUTH. They want worldly news because that are IN THE WORLD, they have one foot in the world and maybe, just maybe, they have a toe or so into Jesus. But in reality, they are EARTH DWELLERS, in love with this world and the NEWS of this world!  

The modern-day church is so apostate, and so in bed with their BROAD WAY faith and belief ONLY gospel that they fulfill Scripture prophecy to the letter. The MANY and THE FEW. It is prophecy you know, so it must be fulfilled. The fields are ripe for HARVEST, but the workers forTHE TRUTH ARE FEW. FEW INDEED. TINY, MINUTE. WHAT A SHOCK THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO FACE.

Here is the advice given to all of humanity that He loves with such a deep love there are no words to describe it:

Luke 12:31-33

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

We might get a better understanding of the absolute importance of this from Matthew 6

Matthew 6:33-34

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Notice the word FIRST:

G4412

πρῶτον – prōton – pro’-ton

Neuter of G4413 as an adverb (with or without G3588); firstly (in time, place, order, or importance): – before, at the beginning, chiefly, (at, at the) first (of all).

Now if this does not give one a CLUE as to how important all of this is, then there is no hope for that person. And now the word LITTLE:

G3398

LITTLE

μικρός, μικρότερος – mikros    mikroteros

mik-ros’, mik-rot’-er-os

Apparently a primary word, including the comparative (second form); small (in size, quantity, number or (figuratively) dignity): – least, less, little, small.

This compares with what Jesus said in Matthew 7, concerning HOW FEW would do as they were commanded find LIFE:

MATTHEW 7:13-14

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

THE WORD FEW:

G3641

ὀλίγος – oligos – ol-ee’-gos

Of uncertain affinity; puny (in extent, degree, number, duration or value); especially neuter (adverbially) somewhat: – + almost, brief [-ly], few, (a) little, + long, a season, short, small, a while.

So, the warnings are there, along with GREAT PROMISES to anyone and everyone in humanity that God will give POWER TO ALL WHO BELIEVE TO ACCOMPLISH SALVATION. It is the LORD that gives the TRUE BELIEVER the ability and power to enter in at the strait gate and to walk the narrow way. It is He alone that provides the power to walk the WAY via GRACE. That being so, where is this a WORK, or a LEGALISM? And so it goes, and so it is, and so it will be until the GREAT RAPTURE OCCURS, and then, well, it will be too late for multitudes (millions) of Christians who will be turned away and rejected:

Now then, Jesus REJECTS millions upon millions of Christians – many of whom are on the front lines, watchmen, teachers, preachers, evangelists, miracle workers:

Matthew 7:

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

“I never came to KNOW YOU EXPERIENTIALLY. We never met; you did not COME to the light. Yes, you believed, YES you had great faith, YES you did miracle works, gave prophecies, and did many wonderful works!! But you did not COME TO ME TO BE JUDGED. YOU PASSED OVER JUDGMENT and DIVINE LOVE” in paraphrase.

I would suggest that people drop what they are doing, and post haste BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT HE COMMANDS rather then the FAKES OUT THERE WITH THEIR BROAD WAY THEOLOGY that leads to eternal ruin. Are modern Christians the new Pharisees? It would seem so:

Luke 11:42-43

42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

Why? Because the STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY are the only way NOT TO PASS OVER JUDGMENT AND LOVE. If you refuse the “way” you will never come into judgment with the Lord, and you will never have DIVINE AGAPE shown to you. You will die in your sins…

  1. Dearest Stewart, I can see the pain and frustration in your writings and hear it in your voice. How many years you have pleaded with people to just pick up their Bibles and ask God, through the Holy Spirit to guide them unto ALL the truth, and yet…

    The answer is in your question above; Bible prophecy must be, and is being fulfilled. The very fact that so few are even interested in their own salvation, or the final destination for all eternity of their souls and spirits, is that fulfillment. The question beyond that, as to why, is apparently irrelevant as far as I can tell.

    I wish there was more comfort than that for you. It’s hard to watch the whole thing going down, but watch we must and pray always, we few will be accounted worthy to stand before the son of man.
    Waiting for that day with a mixture of sadness for the loss of lives, yet with great excitement and anticipation of the revelation, rebirth and being quickened together with our Lord and Saviour, our Redeemer Jesus Christ.

    Thank you for your commitment to the little flock. It has made all the difference in my life as this long journey goes on. May God continue to bless you and the ministry and all who support it.

    All my love, in Christ Jesus,
    Denny

    According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Phil 1:20)

  2. Thank you for this blog post Stewart. It is right on target and so timely. The church told me for three years that I was saved, born again, and headed to heaven. My shame was to be willingly ignorant of this lie for those three years.

    The best thing that ever happened to me (so far) was when I realized I wasn’t born again at all!! The EZ way was a deception. I had been “passing over” so many Bible verses that had always made me uncomfortable; but a whisperer told me, “nah, look around…nobody else is doing them…so it must be okay…how could so MANY be wrong?”

    For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. (Prov 7:26)

    Rev 3:21:

    To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

    I see Rev 3:21 as further confirmation that the way of salvation is not EZ at all; and that the true believer is to OVERCOME in a FIGURE of how the Lord Himself OVERCAME; which, of course, is the CROSS.

    Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Heb 12:2)

    Questions for professing Christians:

    Is saying a “sincere sinner’s prayer” a figure of how the Lord OVERCAME? Is it a figure of walking the CROSS?

    Is “going forward” on an “altar call” a figure of how the Lord OVERCAME? Is it a figure of walking the CROSS?

    Is “reciting” and “believing” isolated verses like John 3:16 (or Romans 10, 1Cor 15, etc.) a figure of how the Lord OVERCAME? Is it a figure of walking the CROSS?

    Are keeping sabbath days or feast days a figure of how the Lord OVERCAME? Are these figures of walking the CROSS?

    Are “just have faith” and “just believe” and “faith only” (no obedience required) figures of how the Lord OVERCAME? Are these figures of walking the CROSS?

    The Lord was OBEDIENT to walking the cross, and we are to do likewise:

    Heb 5:8-9:

    Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; (Heb 5:8)

    And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; (Heb 5:9)

    The Lord commanded all of us to pick up our OWN cross DAILY:

    And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Luke 9:23)

    Which harmonizes and integrates PERFECTLY with Rev 3:21 above. We are to OVERCOME as the Lord OVERCAME. We are to walk a figure of the cross ourselves; and the Lord tells us in Matt 7:14 that salvation comes only at the END of this narrow way crosswalk:

    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matt 7:14)

    Do “sinner’s prayers” and the rest of the EZ ways above harmonize with the believer taking up his (or her) OWN cross and following the Lord to Calvary? Or, are these ways the very EZ, broad ways that the Lord warned us about in Matt 7:13-14?

    Question: Why doesn’t the Lord mention ANY of these EZ ways as remedies to the UNSAVED Laodiceans in Rev 3:18-19? Why didn’t the Lord tell the Laodiceans to simply “say a sincere sinner’s prayer” and they would not be spued out?

    Is it possible that “sincere sinner’s prayers” (and the other EZ ways) constitute WHY the Laodiceans are lukewarm in the first place? A frightening thought (or it should be):

    Rev 3:18-19:
    I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Rev 3:18)

    As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Rev 3:19)

    “Repent” from what? From the wide, broad ways of “sinner’s prayers” and the rest of the EZ, fake ways!!

    Stewart has written a most-helpful guide on taking up our own cross and entering the strait gate and walking the narrow way. It is called “Dark/Light.” It is free. Prove it out with your Bible. Prove it wrong if you can. The Lord will show the diligent seeker the truth.

    One more thing about Rev 3:21: notice that it is only the OVERCOMER that will sit with the Lord in His throne; therefore:

    No taking up our own cross (and obeying the rest of the Lord’s salvation commandments) = NO OVERCOMING = No sitting with the Lord in His throne = Eternal ruin.

    And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (Matt 10:38)

    How much more dishonoring of the Lord can we get than comparing our instant “salvation” of a “sinner’s prayer” or “altar call” or “just believe” or sabbath-keeping to the Lord’s walk to Calvary, in direct rebellion to His plain and simple commands to take up our OWN cross and ENTER IN?

    And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. (Luke 22:44)

    Beware EZ-way Christian. Beware.

    • Wow Peter, what an excellent witness and warning from someone who knows by experience (G1097-ginosko) just how they trap a person into the easy broad way to destruction.
      The rest of it has got to be a mix of rebellion in their disobedience, willful ignorance and spiritual blindness? God will pick their delusions…

      And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (2Thess 2:11)

      That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2Thess 2:12)

  3. The state of the “world” within the matrix affects EVERYONE. One aspect that you point out here is that apart seeking Jesus Christ one does not want to be real and face facts. It is a very strong influence for people to deny and not come to The Light. This is reinforced by herd mentality, where most are in the same place of denial.
    I appreciate your balanced approach towards the “news” where the main thrust is salvation. Most of the conservative news sites, including Christian ones are not balanced for they mainly focus upon Satan’s agents and doings AND NOT ON JESUS CHRIST…they are wasting precious time needed to seek ZOE at the end.
    Hope to see Volume 3 of the Frequency series….your work bears fruit to the Glory of our Heavenly Father..praise the Lord Jesus Christ.
