Prayer Service or Gate of the gods?
Beloved today we witnessed the Inaugural Prayer Service from the National Cathedral in Washington, DC which endorses homosexuality “A longtime supporter of the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the life of the church, the Cathedral considers LGBT equality the great civil rights issue of church in the 21st century.” -https://cathedral.org/initiative/lgbt-advocacy/.
This ceremony was labeled as “Interfaith” which for the ‘Followers of Jesus Christ’ is anathema to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For there is only one Faith and One God. Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
An inauguration is defined as:
in·au·gu·ra·tion noun the beginning or introduction of a system, policy, or period
the formal admission of someone to office.
a ceremony to mark the beginning of something.
What was witnessed today at the Inaugural Prayer Service was best described as Babylon and confusion for the Follower of Jesus Christ. What I am about to say is not done out of hate and bigotry but rather in the defense of the truth. What truth you might ask? This truth - John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 2Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Why must I do this? I have no other choice - Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
This prayer service was against the truths of the Word of God as mentioned above. These truths are: there is but One God YHVH, JESUS THE CHRIST. There is but one Inerrant Holy Inspired Word of God-The Bible. Today at this service what was presented was Babylon and confusion. Babylon is also translated as ‘gates of the gods” Strong's Concordance
Babulón: "gate of god(s)," Babylon, a large city situated astride the Euphrates river. That is exactly what was presented today at this inaugural prayer service among some of its speakers:
Mariann Edgar Budde Bishop of Washington –Episcopal Church: ordains Gay clergy and endorses same sex marriage. Might as well endorse murder, stealing, covetness, etc. As well. She closed the service asking everyone to “pray to their own gods” Paganism is alive and well.
Narayanachar L. Dialakote Sri Siva Vishnu Temple is a Hindu temple of which some of their beliefs are: Hindus believe that the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution. Hindus believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds. Hindus believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births until all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be deprived of this destiny. Hindus believe that no religion teaches the only way to salvation above all others, but that all genuine paths are facets of God's Light, deserving tolerance and understanding. This particular temple he represents is named after one of the many Hindu gods Vishnu which is the “protector and preserver of worlds”.
D. Todd Christofferson, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Among their beliefs are: The book of Mormon is more correct than the Bible, (History of the Church, vol. 4, p. 461). The Devil was born as a spirit after Jesus "in the morning of pre-existence," (Mormon Doctrine, p. 192).
Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers and we were all born as siblings in heaven to them both, (Mormon Doctrine, p. 163). God used to be a man on another planet (Mormon Doctrine, p. 321; Joseph Smith, Times and Seasons, vol. 5, p. 613-614; Orson Pratt, Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 345; Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, vol. 7, p. 333).
Imam Mohamed Magid All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center who’s Islamic Beliefs are: Jesus was not divine, but merely a prophet, Mohammad and the Arabs are descendants of Ishmael, which Islam claims Jesus said by their interpretation of Matthew 21:42-44 would supersede the Israelite nation. God has no sons: Allah forbid that He should have a son." (Koran 4:171) "It is not meet for God to have children." (Koran 19.92) "He begets not, nor he is begotten, and there is none like unto him." (Koran 112:3)
Jesse Singh Chairman of the Board of Sikh Associations of Baltimore MD among their beliefs are: There is only one God, God is without form, or gender, a good life is lived as part of a community, by living honestly and caring for others.
Anthony Vance National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States which is a religion founded in 19th Persia, beliefs include: the unity of religion, that all major religions have the same spiritual source and come from the same God; and the unity of humanity, that all humans have been created equal, coupled with the unity in diversity, that diversity of race and culture are seen as worthy of appreciation and acceptance
The above is not all inclusive because you also had the Roman Catholic Church which participates in relic worship and believe that the Pope is Christ on earth and infallible. The Jewish belief in Judaism is there which does not conflict with Christianity but rather they are in a state of blindness to the true Messiah Jesus the Christ. If the so called Christian cannot see the problems with these beliefs the shame on you. You should begin a prayer life earnestly and 2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
What is labeled as interfaith is actually Babylon; which in the Hebrew sense is “gate of the gods” which was in full display before our eyes and hearts today. Today the philosophies and teaching of the gods (demons) were on full display: homosexuality, karma, reincarnation, man inspired books are more important than the Bible, Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers; man will become god and rule his own world, God used to be man on another planet, good works are enough, all religions have the same God. Yes the “gates of the gods” was surely opened. 1Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
What is most concerning is the so called Christian preachers represented there which listened to this and said nothing. I say so called Christian because the description of Christian has almost lost all meaning because today so called Christians believe in abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, we all worship the same God just call Him different names, heaven and hell are on symbols of good and evil, no one will go to hell, Jesus was just a good man and represents goodness and on and on it goes. Perhaps we that believe in the Holy inerrant Word of God should start calling ourselves: Followers of Jesus Christ; since Christian means very little today.
Leaders of the Christian faith like: Harry Jackson- Hope Christian Church, Greg Laurie- Harvest Christian Fellowship, Jack Graham- Prestonwood Baptist Church, David Jeremiah- Shadow Mountain Community Church, Ronnie Floyd- Cross Church, David Swanson- First Presbyterian Church, Cissie Graham Lynch- Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Ramiro Pena- Christ the King Baptist Church, Darrell Scott- New Spirit Revival Center. To you all I ask you to reconcile this interfaith with your faith? Does not God say?
Galatians 1:6-11 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.11But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
Which is prominent in your faith; the Relativism of the world or the Revelation of God Almighty YHVH I AM THAT I AM, JESUS THE CHRIST, THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS? We all must choose.
Nothing here is said in hate but in defense of the truth. Jude 1:3-4 3Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Gospel of Christ is the Gospel of Hope, Love and Peace. I pray that all would come into the love and admonition of the LORD. 1Timothy 2:4-5 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; What I write is out of love and not hate and it is to wake up the so called Christian to be a Follower of Jesus Christ, to share the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to build a sure foundation:
1Corinthians 3:10-11 10According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Let us speak the Gospel in Peace, Love, but most of all truth; never forsake truth for unity. To those that profess Christianity but do not possess Christ beware :
Matthew 7:22-23 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.
There is a one world religion coming:
Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Revelation 13:7-12 7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Revelation 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Let us stand upon the truth because of a love for the truth. Jude 1:21-23 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
JESUS SAVES-To God be the Glory
