Temporary or Eternal Freedom: For Which Will YOU Die?

Temporary or Eternal Freedom: For Which Will YOU Die?

When the Lord once begins to work in a willing person’s heart, that soul, if it remains open to the Spirit’s workings will be made fit for the kingdom of God and of Christ. To this end, I began rereading the ponderously heavy volume of the Martyr’s Mirror; and in looking again into this very revealing mirror, have seen my own need to seek God more fervently, more earnestly, than hitherto I have done. In so saying, I will be leaving off blogging — for the most part — to accomplish this end; but I will leave you with just one thought to ponder for yourselves. It is of utmost importance; and if it was the only post ever made on my humble blog, it would be enough.

To give you reference for the quote, it must be noted that previously to the selected quote, mention was made of some of the world’s heroes and martyrs, who suffered much, even death, to accomplish great things upon earth. Original footnotes will be included in parentheses, marked with an asterisk.

From the Author’s Preface, Martyr’s Mirror, Second English Edition, thirtieth printing, 2009: excerpts from pages 13-15; here is the noteworthy portion:

“We have already spoken of the great honor which custom conferred upon the brave and triumphant warriors; yet not one of all these, however great, mighty, valiant and victorious he may have been, or how great the honor and glory with which he may have been hailed, could in any wise be compared with the least martyr who suffered for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

“Even aged and feeble persons, youths and maidens, and such as were not noticed, yea whom the world did not esteem at all, did infinitely more through the power of their faith, their ardent love to God, and, especially, their steadfastness unto death, whereby they were enabled to forsake, yea, despise, all visible things, and to put entirely out of their thoughts, forget, and bid, as it were, eternal adieu to, until the consummation of all things, money, property, houses, farms, brothers, sisters, parents, children, dear friends and relatives, yea their own bodies and lives, and everything pleasing and delightful according to the flesh; whereas others, if possible, gladly enjoyed and retained all this, and would fain have retained it always, or still retain it.

“The honor, therefore, which is due to the holy martyrs, is infinitely greater and better than that of earthly heroes; just as the fight they fought, was infinitely more profitable, and their victory, as coming from the hand of God, infinitely more praiseworthy and glorious. *
(* God is worthier than the creatures; heaven is worthier than the earth; and the soul is more excellent than the body; in the same manner the divine, heavenly and spiritual warfare is worthier and more excellent than the creatural, earthly and corporeal warfare; that is beyond contradiction.)

“Through earthly wars countries and their inhabitants are destroyed, the innocent killed, the fugitive robbed of their property, and much weeping and mourning caused among those who remain. But through the warfare of the martyrs, at least through the martyrs themselves, the prosperity of countries and their inhabitants was promoted because of the fervent prayers offered up by the martyrs to God for those who did them harm and for the common welfare of all the inhabitants.

… …

“They caused no one to lament or weep, by doing him the least damage or injury, but they greeted everybody, even their enemies, with kindness, embraced them with the arms of love, and gave them cause to rejoice and be glad, outwardly as well as inwardly, bodily and spiritually, here and (God granting them mercy) also hereafter.

“O most delightful warfare, which did injury to none, but good to all. O ye blessed heroes, who fought this fight! No princes or kings can be compared to you; for all the honors won by earthly heroes on earth shall vanish with the earth; but your honor is an everlasting honor; your glory shall never cease, yea, shall endure, as long as God endures, whom you served.”

{This little snippet from the Martyr’s Mirror gives the perfect view of the only true warfare and true martyrdom. It shows us the inestimable value of giving up (completely dying to) the world of temporal things in order to gain that eternal kingdom, honor, glory and LIFE. To this I sincerely aspire, and in light of this…}

“…all have need to be taught in the way of salvation; no one would choose to be unsaved. … … Have compassion upon your own souls, whom the Lord loves so dearly, seeking to lead them to heaven; yea for whom the Son of God has shed his precious blood, thus purchasing them with so great a price. We would commend this matter most urgently to you as well as to ourselves. O Lord, help! O Lord, let it prosper!”

Dear readers, consider this deeply, as a matter of life and death! Jesus said, in Mark 8:36, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Until next time…

The Plot Thickens…

It seems the so-called “authorities” have been ramping up the vaccine campaign this past year, as evidenced by the following three articles which appeared in our local paper at strategic times.

This first one makes an effort to convince adults that vaccines are not just for children, and claims to debunk some so-called “myths” about vaccines by very authoritatively asserting some so-called “facts”. How many of my readers can personally verify that “Myth” #1 is, in fact, very true?

The second article is in the form of a survey, which claims to show that almost half of adults will not get a flu shot this year! Such a terrible thing, isn’t it? So many errant adults out here in Alberta!! Perhaps it’s because so many have had or know someone who has had nasty reactions to it, and don’t want a repeat!

image

And the third one is a political cartoon that makes a direct hit at the so-called “anti-vaxxers” who only desire to be allowed to make their own choices concerning vaccination. The vaccine pushers make it appear as if those who don’t vaccinate are responsible for all the pestilence that appears upon the earth! As if!!

image

Well, I have news for these deceivers, who are pushing this evil “mandatory vaccination” job: God himself said he would send pestilence (among other things) in judgment upon wicked men and evil-doers who won’t repent of their evil deeds! And here’s more news for them: the folks who are safely “hid with Christ in God” won’t be affected by these nasty plagues. (Please read Revelation in an authorized King James bible, ask God for wisdom, and seek him with all your heart to be saved from this wicked and adulterous generation.)

Then stand fast in the Lord, and stand up for your RIGHT to refuse any procedure, including vaccination, that you don’t want from “el medical mafia”!!

The Path of the Yellow Star — alicespringstomind

There are some who believe we are already on this path. One school in the USA even used wristbands coloured yellow, to distinguish their vaccinated from their unvaccinated students. What the point was is hard to imagine, other than to ensure discriminatory treatment in some way? The fear which was established by so-called “public health” […]

The Path of the Yellow Star — alicespringstomind

Hello to all my patient readers! Sorry for so much silence, but all the bad news gets a little depressing, and a little overwhelming. However, this is a good news piece, and I hope it will inspire others to follow Moscow’s wise example. If everyone would simply refuse to support any business that asks for a ”vaccine passport”, we could see the end of this discrimination in a hurry. It doesn’t help for only a few folks to avoid these places; it must be done en masse to work.

Thanks to alicespringstomind for this piece of good news!

Some Tuesday Night Thoughts on the Current Situation…

Recently, our vigilant Postmistress has been informed by Canada Post that if she won’t knuckle under and submit to the extremely dangerous and unethical joo jab, aka ”covid vaccine”, that she can expect to be sent on unpaid leave. And after Crime Minister Trudeau said that 70% of federal employees, including postal workers, were exempt from his federal vaccine mandate. Well, what can one expect from a liar…?

She’s fighting that, and I hope she succeeds!

And today I read a piece in one of our local propaganda sheets, because after all, one can learn something valuable even from that if the eyes are open… This ”editorial” said that the WHO (World HELL Organization) and the Alberta HELL Services are making claims that consumption of alcohol, even in reasonable quantities, such as one or two drinks per day, is a major cause of cancer, on the scale of tobacco, etc.! Imagine that! Folks have been consuming alcohol since time began, and nobody has EVER heard that before.

They are also claiming that consumption of alcohol, even in small quantities ”manipulates and damages DNA”… Ponder THAT statement for a minute…

What do we know about the Covid joo jabs, being called ”vaccines”? They have MANY SERIOUS side effects, even cancer and DNA damage. Hmmm!!! Think there’s any connection between the ”latest findings” on alcohol consumption and these two major health problems?? Think perhaps the WHO and other evil HELL services are setting up an alibi for themselves for when the storm of health problems begins to appear from the so-called covid ”vaccines”?!?

I see a MAJOR connection, in that when these joo jab-caused cancers and DNA issues start to appear, then they can say, ”It’s from consuming alcohol. See, we showed you the findings.”

Mark my words!

Here is a link for more info from Naturalnews.com and shared from thetruthseeker.co.uk

Are the ”Vaccines” Working? That Depends on Which Side You’re on, Doesn’t it?

From thetruthseeker.co.uk came this report by XandrewX on Bitchute: Please watch it, and if you haven’t got that poison jab yet, this information could save your life. And as I always mentioned to my kids; “Yes, it CAN happen to you. Unless you make different choices…”

Just notice: in one place, the paramedic uniforms have that demonic occult so-called ”star of david” on their backs…!

And the MP in Finland must be applauded for his courageous stand in parliament, speaking truth that could get him punished. We all need to spread the facts against all the lies the others are spewing!

Our own AHS (Alberta HELL Services) has recently stuffed every mailbox with a large brochure promoting the joo jab, filled with lies and coercive manipulations to get more people to knuckle under and get ”shot”!

Resistance is MANDATORY, folks. You can never undo it if you did it. But you CAN say NO!!

Well, What do you Know About That!??

HELLth officials are starting to backtrack on their FAKE stories of ”Covid deaths”, having been smoked out like the rats they are, by folks who are willing to go past the grief of losing a loved one, and tell the truth on social media. All I can say is what a lovely old lady used to say to me once upon a time: Well, what do you know about that?

Please have a listen to Dan Dicks over at pressfortruth.ca, from which this video was shared, and let’s keep after them until they ALL turn tail and RUN! 😅

And who could resist this little fellow’s PRECIOUS look?!? It’s like he’s saying, ”Ya!! We GOTT ’EM!!!”

Tyranny In Canada: Status Of Brave Canadian Patriot, Artur Pawlowski — Northerntruthseeker

It was a few months back over at that horror show called ‘Blogger’ that I posted an amazing video where Canadian pastor, Artur Pawlowski, was blatantly arrested by the Canadian thought police in Calgary Alberta some 800 miles west of here, for the ‘crime’ of conducting a church service…. That was so appalling and showed […]

Tyranny In Canada: Status Of Brave Canadian Patriot, Artur Pawlowski — Northerntruthseeker

Once again I bring you an update, posted first by NorthernTruthseeker, on Artur Palowski, arrested and possibly imprisoned by now, simply for keeping his church open for worship. This interview with Mike Adams took place a wee bit before October 13, by the sounds of it, but it gives you a good idea of what believers are facing right here in the Communist Republic of Chi—oops—Canada.

Artur Palowski is “right on” about how the true church reacts to the fire of persecution. But he is dead wrong in calling Christianity ”Judeo-Christian”; and he goes way off base when he starts talking about politics being needed to change this war we find ourselves in. It is not a political war, it’s a spiritual war, and politics will never work in the spiritual realm. Even Jesus himself refused to be engaged in any way with the politics of the world, saying My kingdom is not of this world. True believers need to see this fact, as well, and set their own affections on things above, not on things on the earth.

Update on Pastor Artur Pawlowski from Calgary, AB, Canada (or is it China…?)

Following, from RebelNews.com is an update on Pastor Artur Pawlowski, who was arrested and imprisoned for the ”crime” of opening his church during the completely unlawful lockdowns last year. He’s since been put through the wringer on several occasions, and now he’s been ordered by a power-mad ”judge” to denounce himself in the style of a Chinese communist “struggle” meeting!

Talk about covid communism! Let’s pray Artur will refuse to knuckle under to THEIR crimes against justice!!

Why am I NOT Surprised?!?

Absolutely Disgusted in “Coronaville” — and Sodom!!! 😡

(Yes, you heard that right!)

Having to make another foray into the city for a few essentials, we discovered that we can’t even buy a take-out coffee now, without a mask! Even in the up-to-now friendlier stores, the reception was rather cool today, though we were only refused service when we wanted a take-out coffee. It won’t be long, I’m sure, until we are barred from the groceries, as well.

And then came the straw that broke the camel’s back. At Superstore, they have very visible signs posted at the entrance to the washrooms (and I didn’t have a camera! 😡) stating that the bathrooms are now open to “all genders”!!!! WHAAAT!??! 😝😝 

Needless to say, I turned around and walked away. NO WAY am I using a washroom that caters to the gender insanity being promoted by the devil!!!

I spoke to the cashier, and she said they had done that also to the staff washrooms. That would be my last day — no, last minute — working there if that happened at my workplace, that’s for sure! 

And I asked to speak to the manager. I told her I was absolutely disgusted that they had turned their washrooms into transgender washrooms, and that even though I had to go, I refused to use it. I said it’s an abomination! I said I hoped they would put them back to normal.

She told me that it comes down from head office, and they have to enforce it, and that it’s coming everywhere. I told her very firmly that God’s judgment is coming upon all this stuff, and that this country is Sodom and Gomorrah. That’s when she turned her back on me, insincerely wishing me a “nice day”.

I told her I hoped she could repent.

This was my last trip to Superstore; I will no longer give them my business!

Isaiah 5:20-23 (KJV)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;

that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes,

and prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine,

and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward,

and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

Isaiah 10:1-3 (KJV)

1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees,

and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;

2 To turn aside the needy from judgment,

and to take away the right from the poor of my people,

that widows may be their prey,

and that they may rob the fatherless!

3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation,

and in the desolation which shall come from far?

to whom will ye flee for help?

and where will ye leave your glory?

The squeeze is on, folks, and getting tighter every day. The more you comply with the devil’s “rules”, the further you’ll be sucked into his trap. I’ve been warning people here at this blog that there is only one way out of this mess, and that if your heart is attached to this world, you’ll have no way to escape the wrath of Almighty God, which IS COMING, and is already begun, whether you think so or not.

There is only one name given under heaven whereby we must be saved, that is Jesus Christ, and God commands all men everywhere to repent. Unless we have been washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, and have our names written in heaven, we will surely perish. There is no way out except through the cross of Jesus Christ.

One more thing: 

Isaiah 31:1 (KJV)

1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help;

and stay on horses,

and trust in chariots, because they are many;

and in horsemen, because they are very strong;

but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel,

neither seek the LORD!

Our only hope is in the Lord our God. 

Anyone who shops at any Loblaw company (Superstore, Extra Foods, The Independent stores), and who disagrees with Loblaw’s new policy, and all who call themselves Christian, need to write to this company and stand firmly against this evil. I have emailed them online, but afterwards I discovered a paper mail address, and will be also writing them a paper letter. Anyone who supports this gender insanity also supports rape, child abuse and other related evils.
