While Protestants Commemorate Reformation This Month, Papal Persecution Regarding the Eucharist Often Ignored

 

“One thing that is not being brought up in many of these Reformation events this year is the many people who died at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church for refusing to believe in the *Eucharistic Christ.”

*”In a nutshell, the Eucharist is the practice and belief that the real presence of Jesus is in the communion wafer (an event the Catholic Church refers to as  Transubstantiation that can only be performed by a Catholic priest), which is to be consumed by the sinner in order for his sins to be forgiven. It is, in essence, a recrucifying of Christ as if Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross was not sufficient (which is contrary to Scripture that talks about the “finished” work on the Cross.”

Ezra 9

Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.

**3 And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.

Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.

And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the Lord my God,

And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.

Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.

10 And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

11 Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.

12 Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.

13 And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;

14 Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?

15 Lord God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.

 

**Have you ever felt like Ezra? He was THAT sorry when he realized what they had done! I remember the day I realized my religious practice was offensive to the True Living God… I remember weeping uncontrollably…realizing what I had been doing….BUT GOD! Thank God for His everlasting mercy!!!!

Wouldn’t it be great if America as a whole realized this??

“I don’t feel I have to justify my existence.”

“Seriously, I have a great life,” he said. “I don’t feel I should have to justify my existence.”

I wanted to share the following link to a “story” a man with Down Syndrome shared before Congress. As most of you know we have been allowed a set of identical twin boys that have Down Syndrome! So of course I had to share this.

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

This is wedding week and of course it is full of busy-ness that doesn’t have much to do with the wedding until Friday! LOL!

But I KNOW and I TRUST that when it gets to busy the Good Lord always takes care of it for me! Whether He keeps me calm or eliminates a few things for me as the week goes on HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ME for HIS HONOR AND GLORY!

HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT, TOO! THANK YOU, JESUS! ALWAYS AND AGAIN!

“…happy are ye: …”

1 Peter 3:12-17

12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

*REMEMBER*

In the world we will have tribulation-SO WHAT!?

We have a Saviour-the Only Begotten Son of God- JESUS-Who has given us victory over the sting of death! Right? RIGHT!! ETERNAL LIFE! RIGHT? RIGHT!

The Lord says so and I believe Him!

MARCH ON CHRISTIAN SOLDIER! It is not about those that persecute us! It is not about us! It is about the Lord God Almighty’s TRUTH for our NOW and our ETERNITY!
