    The leaven has done it's work,now the loaf is ready for the oven.

    California,especially Hollywood, is the highest temple to the religion of tolerance (of evil) on the earth.
    This religion of satan where man is the center of worship has been instrumental in turning good into evil and evil into good.
    Today evil is tolerated and what is good is now offensive and intolerant.God's restraint has been removed which leads to a terrifying end.
    Everyone will see the ugliness of evil,tolerance of sin by the time our holy God is finished with the spigot from hell.

    This normalizing of evil has corrupted untold numbers of children as far away as Tel Aviv and every area of this earth.
    The confusion,pollution California life has sent out across the earth has returned and now reaps it's final reward.
    The end of sin is always death and we are just seeing the beginning.It's going to get unimaginably worse and any believer should have the sense to do like Lot did.

    California does have some serious problems. I lived there all my life until we moved 5 years ago. I was there when they first had us for about homosexual marriage. We voted it out. Afterward it was the mayor of San Francisco who BROKE the law and began to marry the gays, laughing in the face of all those who should have had him jailed, yet said nothing. To this day CA fights against same sex marriage. True, there is much sin, but what area can say any different? Those who are so quick to state God is judging need to stop and think about all the sin and horror that goes on behind closed doors in other areas. We are very quick to judge what we see!

    What other Country has been more than the U.S. and turned so far away ?
    What other state has been blessed so much in America as California ?

    It does not surprise me to see those who make excuses for lawlesness and wickedness by comparing it with other locations.
    'Everbody else is doing it ,so '
    What a silly argument.
    I'm sure Lots wife had the same reasoning.

    You are very slow to judge righteous judgment as to assume God thinks like you do.
    And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more
    Luke 12:47-49

    Marcel – Isaiah 5:21
    Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

  5. mkayla says:

    Marcel, you have obviously twisted my words and their meaning as I did not say, nor did I imply what you have accused me of.

  6. Beverly says:

    M'Kayla
    Im with you sis~I live in Calif. and I have all my life. There are good and bad in all amen.
    Maybe, marcel should visit LasVegas Nevada for one day, or maybe New Orleans in the month of October.
    Marcel God's judgement is worldwide my friend, so wakeup!! and stop judging people by where they are found on the map
    Mkayla Lord Bless you in your spiritual walk
    Isaiah 50:4

    Thanks Beverly!

    I want to clarify my thinking in my comment regarding God's judgement.

    We look at an area, like CA and it's vileness, we see their current economic situation and someone pops off that it is God who is judging them for all their many sins. We saw the same thing in the southern states with those horrible hurricanes that destroyed many homes, businesses and lives. We also saw this in the tsunami that took so many lives a few years ago. That was probably the most horrible natural disaster any of us have seen. It broke my heart to hear such arrogant claims that God was judging those areas for not worshipping him.

    We know there is much sin, complete vileness that goes on behind closed doors – unseen, unspoken, things that should never happen to the innocent and those who cannot protect themselves. Where is God's judgment in those situations? Because if we were to apply the same rule of measure, we would see homes or health care facilities and even churches suddenly blown up or sucked down into the ground. I don't see any of that going on! We cannot say that God is judging an area simply because we see the sin. All have sinned!

    So, is CA suffering under the hand of God's judgement, or under the heavy hand of government officials who squandered money to the point there longer is none? Decisions have consequences having nothing to do with the hand of God! We are creating our own tribulation.

    This is my opinion based on my knowledge of God and his word. I could be wrong, but that is ok. Discussion is how we learn.

    I think it is important that we watch our words. To falsely accuse a person is also a sin. And Marcel, since I am still of flesh and blood, not of salt, I have not been judged by God either.

    'We are very quick to judge what we see!'

    Some even judge what they do not see or even understand.
    When warning of judging you should warn your friend about quoting Isaiah 5:21.

    How could she possible know my heart or motives unless she is God or was she talking about the wicked who we can judge by their perverse fruit ?

    Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
    Genesis 6

    For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)—
    2 Peter 2

    And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?” So He said to them, “Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
    Luke 17

    I used to believe vs 34-37 was scripture speaking of an early rapture ,a catching away but it is about God killing the wicked and leaving their dead carcass' for the birds to eat.
    How many are still deceived about this ?
    I'm sure we will all see many dead around us before Jesus returns.
    He's already begun killing the wicked who have become reprobat like much of California and it's evident that the Church in California has lost it's salt and is good for nothing although there is a remnant like Lot who werer tormented by the evil around them and not comfortable with it.

    Having rejected the blessings of God, America is cursed from coast to coast.
    God has given the perverse people perverse leaders.
    America's leaders are cursed and only evil,lies,subterfuge comes from them now.

    As wicked, perverted California goes so goes the nation.

    Both of you Please~~read the Book of Ezekiel

    Ezekiel 34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

  11. Beverly says:

    JoJo God Bless you and let me tell you something about my life here in Calif.
    I grew up with an alcoholic Dad. Thankfully my dear mother and her neighbor friend knew the Lord, and taught me how to pray. All My life I lived with a healthy fear of God. It wasnt until age 10 that I learned about Christ Jesus and it was then that I was baptised. At the same time of my Baptism good ol dad accepted Christ as his savior and also became Baptised. dad hasnt touched the alcohol since', and I am happy to say he is 88 and driving to church and everywhere else after repenting of his sins so many yrs ago.
    God is good amen?
    'Here is a scripture for you which helps me on the tough days~!~

    (Psa 57:1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.)

    Please read the book of Ezekiel ?

    “Indeed everyone who quotes proverbs will use this proverb against you: ‘Like mother, like daughter!’ You are your mother’s daughter, loathing husband and children; and you are the sister of your sisters, who loathed their husbands and children; your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite. “Your elder sister is Samaria, who dwells with her daughters to the north of you; and your younger sister, who dwells to the south of you, is Sodom and her daughters. You did not walk in their ways nor act according to their abominations; but, as if that were too little, you became more corrupt than they in all your ways. “As I live,” says the Lord GOD, “neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done. Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.
    “Samaria did not commit half of your sins; but you have multiplied your abominations more than they, and have justified your sisters by all the abominations which you have done. You who judged your sisters, bear your own shame also, because the sins which you committed were more abominable than theirs; they are more righteous than you. Yes, be disgraced also, and bear your own shame, because you justified your sisters.
    Ezekiel 16

  13. Beverly says:

    wow marcel whats it like to hate someone you have never even met, and know nothing about?
    people tell me I have a gift of loving unconditionally and guess what Marcel~~I love you also~~try to walk in love and if thsi isnt too big an insult to you Id like to refer you to ~Col 3

  14. marcel says:

    Beverly,
    There you go judging again.

    I simply shared scripture here which you find offensive and the first thing you do is go on the attack.

    That leads me to wonder why ?

    Those who tell you that you have a gift for loving are lying to you.
    This is evident by your quick to judge attitude and your latest response.
    Unrepentant sinners love their enablers and hate those who are obedient to Ephesians 5:11.

    Over the years I have been falsely accused of hate by only a few select groups,the Islamofascists and the Homofascists because the truth bothers them and they hate to be reminded of it.
    I'm sure you are happy that Congress has passed the 'hate' laws

    Marcel you are a liar and now i am washing my hands of your posts~~Click

  16. marcel says:

    The scripture I shared related to the sin of Sodom ,but it stuck to you like glue !

    Does your own hear condemn you ?

    It's sad how shallow and feigned much of madern day Christian love is.
    The slightest perceived 'offense' exposes what really lies beneath the surface.

    Phony and full of hypocrisy.
    How easily offended is the flesh not yet dead to sin.

    There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
    Romans 8

  17. marcel says:

    easy way ?

    Though the cross of Christ has been beautified by the poet and the artist, the avid seeker after God is likely to find it the same savage implement of destruction it was in the days of old. The way of the cross is still the pain-wracked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness.

    So do not seek to hide from it. Do not accept an easy way. Do not allow yourself to be patted to sleep in a comfortable church, void of power. Do not paint the cross nor deck it with flowers. Take it for what it is, as it is, and you will find it the rugged way to death and life. Let it slay you utterly."

    "He said that the last time he has spent a night with a girlfriend was in 1982, he also had a child with a women in 1991. That he couldn't find a partner drove him mad. He had tried the attack before on January 1st, but "chickened" out. In his last entry on August 3rd, it reads:

    "Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I will not be embarrassed, because, well, I will be dead."

    You can read George Sodini's blog entries at georgesodini.com, but when we last checked the service was unavailable, probably due to the high traffic." – Quote from article

    I really do believe that the liberal teachings and the evil being done, in both California and the nation as a whole, are connected to each other.

    Where does madness flow from? Does it come from the Christ who told the truth; or, does it come from the Pharisees that had a mere form of that Godliness they professed to have! Godliness which lacked all power, lacked the Holy Spirit and that understanding of what is true that flows from God alone, which is vile in the eyes of God. I fully believe, beyond a doubt, it's most certainly the latter.

    Liberal theology, void of the Spirit of Christ and thusly of the truth, brings madness/creates monsters! Causes sin to flow like an erupting volcano! America will be set on fire, will burn, as will all the heathen who refuse to do what's right! Amen, and amen.
