Housekeeping!

It's been a while, and I'm still waiting for the books I promised everyone. It's understandable given the time of the year, and the fact that UPS and USPS trucks are zipping around town as though they were EMS.

As soon as my books get in I will contact those of you who sent in your e-mail addresses for your physical addresses.

Some exciting news, at least for some of you, we are starting a radio program on Blogtalk Radio, it will be called the Light of Truth Radio Broadcast, and I will be able to take phone calls and interact with those who choose to listen.

It was the only way I would agree to committing to another radio program. I wanted to be able to take questions, interact, converse, and bandy about even, and since they were able to make this possible, I agreed to it.

Our first live broadcast will be December 31, 2015 at 6:00 PM CST.

Since it will be our first broadcast I thought I'd keep it lighthearted, and discuss the topics of date setting, the need for accuracy in prophecy, and how we're still here seeing that September has come and gone.

We will also be doing what will be a weekly spot called Headlines From Sodom, get into some good old fashioned Bible exegesis, and just have a productive time in Christ.

Hopefully you will find a link below that will take you to the program. If not, Look us up on Blogtalk I guess. I really should become more computer savvy, but that's beside the point.

One last thing, to all of you who read this blog, who support the ministry I helm, and who keep me and my family in your prayers, Merry Christmas. Now, I could go into a whole three thousand word litany about how when I wish you a Merry Christmas I am not condoning Christmas Trees, that I understand Jesus was not born on December 24th, and other such things, but let's be grown ups and stop getting so easily offended at every little thing, even things for which there is no basis for offense.

While the enemy has overtaken the citadel we're still trying to poke each others' eyes out over futile inanities that are not salvation issues, or anything even close to them. Nothing like infighting to keep us distracted from the enemy's devices, but there I go again saying too much.

Merry Christmas! There! To those so inclined, be offended, and God bless you!

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

While I personally do not celebrate Christmas, Many christians try to make laws out of things that God has led them to do. They preach LAW instead of CHRIST. We are to follow the Lord where ever HE LEADS US and not be concerned with externals which do not lead us into Holiness but rather make us concerned with works instead of Faith. Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith and FOLLOW THE LAMB as HE LEADS and not as he leads others. ASK GOD ABOUT EVERYTHING!!!!

Michael, I think that far too often we take it upon ourselves to judge matters as "non-salvation issues". I think we will be surprised how the Lord will judge our motives about what we consider inanities. Anything that is not done in Love and Faith certainly grieves Him.

The Lord loves those who obey Him, and scripture tells us that (Heb 5:9 [KJV]) "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that *obey* him;"

In the end He looks at whether we obeyed Him or simply called Him "Lord, Lord" without truly loving and obeying Him... and that will decide our salvation.

Do not judge your fellow servant regarding the holidays... this goes BOTH ways. I trust that every one (he who observes and he who does not observe the Christmas feast) does so out of their deepest love for the Lord. There is no need to put each other down or despise one another for what they practice. Christmas carries a spirit with it that is NOT of the Lord, and one can count on it manifesting every time. So beware, and lets not begin to beat each other.

(Jas 3:2 [KJV]) For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same [is] a perfect man, [and] able also to bridle the whole body.

Blessings in Jesus.

Those who sow to the flesh will reap of the flesh, and those who sow to the spirit will reap of the spirit. It is fleshly to want to participate in Christmas, not spiritually of God. A mass of Christ translates as a murder of Christ. A mass is a celebration of murder and blood having roots in pagan practices. According to researcher Russ Dizdar, more human sacrifices occur on Christmas than Halloween. Look at the name Santa Claus, Santa is an anagram of Satan. It is written, my people perish for lack of knowledge. Also, that those who teach will receive a greater condemnation. You should be very careful what you promote as someone who claims to be a minister. Do you really want to suggest that the death of Christ is a merry occasion? It is written you will be judged for every word you have spoken.

Old habits are hard to break, but as a follower of Christ, as a disciple, I think you should circumcise your heart regarding things that are despised by the Lord.

Christmas is an entirely pagan based holiday. It has its roots in the black mass, or human sacrifice. I would be careful about calling that merry, especially in terms of Christ Emmanuel.

We love and support this ministry and have for years and will continue to do so. We are also in that group, be it small, that has seen the truth about the " mixture" of false gods with the " traditions" of the holidays. We are not offended at your tone but just weary and saddened at it, dear brother. Jesus had a lot to say about the traditions of men and it is also recorded how our Lord hates mixture which is vividly described in Ezekiel. We do not want to offend our Saviour in any way, so we beg your patience with our concerned carefulness in this matter. Giving for us is to be daily and directed by the Holy Spirit not limited to one gaudy and excessive day . we know this ministry is faithful to do so all year. He is coming for a church without spot or wrinkle and we are concerned about those things in our lives. Are those small things to Jesus? . So we will continue to rid ourselves with what others see as small and inconsequential in the hope of purity in all things before our Jesus. We love and appreciate you brother and the ministry God has powerfully used in our lives. We are well aware of the " more important " issues that you mentioned and we grieve over those issues also but we see the importance of jot and tittle issues as a part of the whole picture. Please help us to see how that is wrong. Our intent is not to offend you or others but to be pure before our Saviour. Is it not important to be faithful in the least? May you and your entire staff be blessed abundantly for the selfless service you demonstrate to the poor and thus to our Savior! The Louthains

I totally agree that Christmas is a pagan holiday, BUT, being admonished by Paul to be weak to the weak, I cannot criticize someone who has not yet had the revelations that the Lord has given me. When I became a believer 40+ years ago, I did not know about Christmas, Easter, the baptism of the Holy Spirit and numerous other things that were involved in our continual growth while walking with our Lord. The people that know me, both secular and religious, know where I stand on the holiday issue, but I do wish them a 'Merry Christmas' when they wish me one. It's THEIR Christmas, and I do want it to be positive in their walk with the Lord. I am not to judge the servant of another.
Blessings to you and all in your ministry,
Timothy M.
