(Pastors’ rambling, rather incoherent thought on Gods’ exposing of our wicked deeds. He is trying to distract/diffuse us into compliance to his devious decrees.)
“A heavy burden came over me for a number of those people that are across the street. I just began to weep, some of their faces coming before me and by knowing their lives and the pain that they’ve been through and the battles that they’ve fought, knowing that Jesus is coming back real soon, I just felt how can we rest without battling for their souls. You know, the hatred and the bitterness and whatever it is that some of them have created in their own new reality. You know they believe this – scripture calls it deceiving and being deceived, you know you talk something up among yourselves enough that it becomes truth. we know that physiologically…. you know you can’t trust your mind, you really cannot trust your memory what you see for the moment and 30 seconds later say definitively say what happened. The memory is stored in 4 different areas of our brain that have to come back together and unite and then create this event that happened previously. Now, when that spans 10, 15, 20, 30 years it’s not always in touch with reality because a lot of other things have been fed in there in the process and just like a dream many times our memory borrows facts from other areas of things that we’ve experienced in our lives and we might even have the wrong people there. And so in the creating of many things, deceiving and being deceived we are promoting thoughts, we are promoting our truth, etc. others begin to buy into it or feed back into it their perception and we are deceiving and being deceived and finally we create a reality. And it the reality that Paul was speaking of in Timothy its the Antichrist – opposing the Gospel, that is opposing the soon coming of Jesus, opposing the place of the church in the world. And we find people that we’ve known and loved and the Bible says Satan taking captive at his will. That’s what they think about us but let them think what they want let them try to kill us we are gonna pray for them they can think what they want, say what they want, they can create their realities, we are not taken up with that. We pray for those that hate us. We do good to those. Do we have compassion for the lost including those folks.”

But God says, “And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts: Which devour widows ‘houses, and for a pretence make long prayers:these shall receive greater damnation” (Mark 12:38-40). “And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him? But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people:for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things” (Mark 11:31-33). “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things” (Mark 13:22-23). “And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember” (Mark 8:15-18).
(Gee whiz! I guess the Son of God didn’t know that the disciples can Not remember accurately. Why didn’t Jesus just tell them what Really Happened? Why did he expect them to understand? According to pastor, there is No Way we can understand anything-without pastors imprint of the Way It Really Happened into our puny little minds.)
