There are three backslidden conditions, and they can be likened to the three people Jesus Christ raised from the dead.
1. Jairus' young daughter who was dead for a few minutes or hours. She is like the child who whimsically decides not to believe in Jesus Christ one day, but it is just for a short time.
2. The only son of a widow who was being carted off to the bone yard. He is like the longtime apparent apostate, but when the Lord gets close enough for him to hear his voice on the way to hell, he comes back to spiritual life.
3. Lazarus who was buried and decomposing. He is like an apostate for decades and apparently dies a hopeless case, but when the trump of God sounds, he will meet the Lord in the air like others that served him most of their life.
Many religious leaders wear women's clothing: ballroom gowns, silly hats, and ballerina shoes. It's hard to picture them going grocery shopping - or to the bathroom.
"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God." (Deuteronomy 22:5)
SERVING THE WORD
If you serve a little of the word of God, you can only feed a few; but if you serve a lot of the word of God, you can feed a lot more. In fact, as in the feeding of the multitudes, you can feed them all until they are stuffed, and have some leftovers for yourself.
ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION
The abomination of desolation is sin standing, or happening in a holy place, or where it obviously ought not to be. Some abominations are homosexual ministers, homosexual marriages, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, the Darth Vader gargoyle on the National Cathedral, and any objects that are regarded with extravagant respect, honor, or devotion. It is also an abomination for political leaders to condone abortion (killing), and homosexual acts (fornication).
NATION UNDER GOD
The only nation ever under God was Israel, and they didn't practice that too often.
DIE FOR YOUR OWN SINS - FOREVER
Jesus was hung on a tree for the sins of the world, and Judas hung himself on a tree for his own sins. If Jesus Christ did not die for your sins, you will have to die for your own - forever.
SACRIFICE TO IDOLS
To eat things sacrificed unto idols is to eat animals which have been killed for pleasure. While you may find it unpleasant to kill an animal for food, some find it a gratifying thrill. No doubt these types like to kill in slaughter houses, wars, through capital punishment, euthanasia, and abortion because they have learned the more they kill, the more satanic power they gain. There have not been many famous political leaders who have not killed many - one way or another.
Chemical warfare has been going on for a long time:
American Indians were intentionally encouraged to drink liquor by their enemies which contributed to bad behavior. If the bad behavior went outside the tribe, the army could come and take them to jail, or to reservations (concentration camps), and steal their land.
Chinese ruling classes were flooded with opium by the British Empire (1839-1860) because of Chinese trade restrictions. It seems a lot more silver was going into China then going into Great Britain, and the British wanted to dumb down the Chinese national security.
Military personnelhave been intentionally exposed to nuclear bomb tests to track the effects of radiation.
The first recreational drug was alcohol. It compromised Noah's guard, helped Jacob and his mother deceive to Isaac, and was in use when Satan dropped a house on Job's children.
The cross was The Roman Empire's intimidating sign of terror to its enemies, before and after the Lord Jesus was crucified, and is still used today in the same way. Wake up and smell the coffee. Also, the Roman Catholic Church uses the cross as its "imprimatur," or, Rome's approval of religious literature.
TITHING PREACHERSMany preachers who teach on tithing only tithe on their basic salary, and not on their other incomes, such as: parsonage or parsonage allowance free utilities, telephones, internet, house insurance, family health insurance, car allowances bonuses, holiday and birthday gifts paid vacations and seminars including airfare, hotel, and restaurant expenses. Of course, if he is meeting his lover at the seminar, the church doesn't pay for her, or him, because they are his secret.
