As a Christians I should memorize I John 4:4. 545 - 7 - 4

1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
As a believer I have the discernment of the Holy Spirit within me enabling me to overcome the false teachers that will abound as we draw closer to the return of Jesus. 2 Timothy 4:3-4, “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; 4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” Again, believers will have the discernment of the indwelling Holy Spirit and turn from these false teachers.
There is another warning in 1 John 4, in verse 3, “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” And in verse 5, “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.”
In Matthew 7 Jesus warns against people who falsely profess to acknowledge Him as Savior
Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
Those who are not allowed entrance into the kingdom of heaven then cry, 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?
And Jesus will say, Matthew 7:23, “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
What a horrific statement to hear. Again, we believers are protested from false teachers,  1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
We owe our justification before a righteous God to the gift of grace of Jesus who served as our propitiation. The least I can do is to conform to Galatians 5:24-25, “24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

In my opinion,1 Corinthians 7:2 rules out polygamy and Same Sex marriage 535-1 - 6 - 6

1 Corinthians 7:2, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
Fornication, G4202, harlotry (including adultery and incest); figuratively idolatry: - fornication. to act the harlot, that is, indulge unlawful lust (of either sex), or practise idolatry.
Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
"In the beginning God" are first four words of the Bible and are the very foundation for the Judeo-Christian faith. The Bible is not a buffet that you can pick and choose from, either you accept it as the Word of God or you reject it.
Christians often quote John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
However wonderful John 3:16 is, many people failed to internalize the following verses.
John 3:17-18, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Either one believes the first four words of the Bible and that Jesus came to be our propitiation or one is in disbelief. The believer is justified before our righteous God but the serious implication of John 3:18 is that he who believes not is condemned already.
But I digress, so back to the book of Genesis.
Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” 
There is a well-worn joke on the Internet that God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. I don’t know how it could be any clearer, God meant for there to be two sexes, a man and a woman. Obama seemed to be obsessed with the LGTB agenda and promoted transgender bathrooms and more. After the Supreme Court’s decision regarding same-sex marriage, Obama lit up the White House with the LGBT colors of the rainbow, co-opted from God’s rainbow.
The rainbow of Genesis 6 was God’s commitment that he would not destroy the world with water again. Interestingly enough, the next time would be by fire. 2018 has been a year of major wildfires and is continuing in California today.
After the flood, Noah his wife and their three sons and daughter-in-law’s left the ark to repopulate the world. Not only were the humans in pairs, a man and a woman, the animals saved in the ark were also male and female.
Again I don’t see how it could be any plainer. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed not just because of their homosexual population but because of their acceptance of homosexuality. Some writers have speculated that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because they did not help the poor, a more politically correct interpretation.
In my opinion, 1 Corinthians 7:2 rules out polygamy as well as homosexual marriage, again, a man and a woman.

John 8 and Psalm 69 provide insight into the life of Jesus from childhood on.

John 8 and Psalm 69 provide insight into the life of Jesus from childhood on. The legibility of Jesus’ was questioned by the Pharisees throughout his ministry and His siblings seem to have rejected Him.
John 8:18, “ I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.”
The Pharisees next question, John 8:19 “Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.”
Again, the legibility of Jesus’ was questioned by the Pharisees throughout his ministry. Jesus was very politically incorrect when speaking to those Pharisees. John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
This disbelief in the deity of Jesus was of the anti-Christ then as it is today.
Psalm 69 not only deals with the crucifixion, it provides insight into the childhood of Jesus. Prior to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus there is no record of his siblings considering him other than mortal. Read his emotional pain of rejection as He cries out in verses 8 and 10.
Psalm 69:4, “They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.”
As it was in the time of Jesus, as it is now, it is very difficult to understand the hatred directed at Jesus by the very people He came to offer eternal life. Jesus being without sin was our propitiation, our justification before a righteous God.
Psalm 69:6, “Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.”
Jesus prayed that His death would not be an obstacle to His believers. With the exception of John, all disciples deserted Him while on the cross. After the resurrection a 180 degree turnaround as the disciples proudly proclaimed The Good News.
Psalm 69:8, “I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.” Psalm 69:10, “When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.”
Jesus siblings likely rejected and ridiculed Him. After the resurrection, another 180 degree turnaround of at least two of his siblings as James and Jude wrote two books of the Bible.

How serious are sexual sins in our society today? 535-1 - 1 - 5

In the past America has committed a trifecta of sins, two dealing with sexual sin:
1. Abortion for convenience after sexual promiscuity.
2. Acceptance of homosexuality/ Same sex marriage.
3. Throwing Israel under the bus, being rectified in part by President Trump’s moving of our embassy to Jerusalem
From a KI post I made days before the Presidential election of 2016:
 “Trump not only is standing against the Democratic Party and their immoral candidate, he’s facing the elitists many of whom are promoting the one world order. Add to that the majority of the mainstream media who denigrate Trump for locker room trash talk. A flawed candidate, indeed. However flawed a number of leading religious leaders are encouraging voters to cast their ballot for Trump as the candidate who better reflects Christian values. It has been said that millions of Christians didn’t vote in the last election as Mitt Romney is a Mormon. So instead we got four more years of President Obama. 
So what will it be? Which candidate is more likely to follow 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
As it was with Israel, are we standing on the precipice or are we being offered more years to bring more into the Kingdom?”
Now two years and a mid-term election later, where are we? Today we have a warrior of the type of Jehu fighting to overcome the scheming not only of the left but also the RINOs and the Elite. Was/ is President Trump our King Cyrus, the king God dictated a letter to through the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah 44:28, “That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.”
As prophesied, Cyrus’ military was unopposed, Isaiah 45:1.
 Unlike Cyrus and for nearly two years President Trump has met with great opposition, opposition from Liberals, from Obama, the RINO including past Republican presidents and members of Congress, a bias often lying media, voter fraud, the Elicits both from without and within his own party and more. The more would certainly include Satan.
We now have a more conservative Supreme Court, hopefully not too late. However, if we push Israel into a two state solution including giving up part of Jerusalem, God forgive us.
As for the question, “How serious are sexual sins in our society today?” In my opinion. getting worse. Abortion is still murdering thousands of babies a day. Degenerates are inventing new genders, rather than just those ordained by God, a man and a woman.
